You may notice that this week’s blog post is shorter than usual. Next week will be back to normal.

Due to living several states apart and isolating separately, I have not seen my boyfriend (a strange word to use at our ages) since February.

Four months is a long time to be apart and I am delighted to finally have the opportunity to once again join with him for a brief visit.

In the past, we would get together monthly and it seems after so long without these visits I am out of practice in preparing for time away. Hense the shortened blog!

We will be camping in isolation on a beautiful New England lake. We will spend time on a dock in the sunshine during the day and listen to loons and owls in the night.

The blog will be back to normal next week. For those I had to reschedule appointments with, I apologize for the inconvenience. Thank you for your support and understanding.

Please keep in mind that transits to your natal planets can override these more universal ones. A personal consultation offers deep understanding.


REALITY AND EFFORT – Monday, June 8, 2020

Today the Capricorn Moon passes over Pluto and Jupiter. This reminds us of what we have been through since these power players first joined together on April 4th. They (Pluto and Jupiter) will join again at the end of this month and one final time in November.

The story they bring is one of the expansion (Jupiter) of power and control (Pluto). We don’t have to look far to see where this conjunction is playing out in the world and our culture.

Where do you see this challenge and struggle in your own life? Think about where in your life you are being asked to increase your own personal empowerment and how to do that.

Days with the Moon in Capricorn are not lighthearted days. We need to face the reality of the work we are here to do. This is a day to work on realistic goals keeping your nose to the grindstone.

At 8:54 PM EDT, the Moon enters Aquarius. This shifts you out of emotional heaviness, bringing your attention to finding solutions. The heavy realities in the world and your life require innovative solutions. The next few days will open you to that search.

***The Capricorn Moon is void-of-course from 2:05 PM EDT until she enters Aquarius at 8:54 PM EDT. This suggests that what occurs during this time will not have much impact.


MARCH TO THE BEAT OF A DIFFERENT DRUMMER – Tuesday, June 9, 2020

Today the Moon is in innovative, unconventional Aquarius.

Aquarius suggests the need to march to the beat of a different drummer. Allow yourself to express the parts of yourself that are most unique. Today others will have more understanding of your quirks, and yet it will matter less to you if they do not.

This is also a good day to listen to and learn from folks who live a different reality than your own. We all tend to spend time with people who look, behave, and live much as we do. Break out of that mold.

If you notice yourself, your partner, or a friend pull away; do not take it personally. Perhaps there has been a bit too much connection and you each need a bit of autonomy.

When the Moon is in Aquarius express the parts of yourself that are most unique. Others will have more understanding of your quirks, and yet it will matter less to you if they do not.


INNOVATION AND WILD THINKING – Wednesday, June 10, 2020

Today is a day best suited for wild, unusual ideas and gatherings with other innovative thinkers. With the Moon in Aquarius, you will do well to seek insights and genius ideas as a community. In order to stay safe, you may have to do this on Zoom!

Your emotions generally will not get in the way of whatever you are dealing with. You are able to be objective and set aside personal emotions. You are able to see the world from a more detached viewpoint.

Today you are more interested in the plight of humanity than in your own pesky emotional state.

Spend the day in social interactions, don’t let anyone influence your most unusual expressions. Allow the most rebellious and spontaneous parts of your personality to emerge.

You can break bad habits most easily under the influence of the objective Aquarius Moon. Break out of any routines or ruts that hold you back.

***The Aquarius Moon is void-of-course from 10:35 AM EDT until she enters Pisces early tomorrow morning. This suggests that what occurs during this time will not have much impact.


ALLOW UNCERTAINTY – Thursday, June 11, 2020

By the time you start the day the Moon is in passive dreamy Pisces. I always think of the Pisces Moon occurring on days when we all need to take a nap.

Today that sleepiness is exacerbated by the Sun forming a square aspect to Neptune. This suggests a weakening of vitality. It is easy to feel confused, disillusioned, disappointed, or just plain tired.

Things are simply not as they appear to be right now. Don’t try to ‘figure things out’, that will only deepen your insecurity or confusion.

It is best to stay away from recreational drugs and alcohol and spend time on your meditation cushion instead. If that is not appealing than listen to music, write poetry, watch a long slow movie, spend time floating on water, or allow yourself to simply dream.

***The Aquarius Moon is void-of-course until she enters Pisces at 5:32 AM EDT. This suggests that what occurs during this time will not have much impact.


COMPASSION AND VULNERABILITY – Friday, June 12, 2020

Today’s Moon in dreamy Pisces is a mixed blessing. If you have to accomplish things that require determination or fortitude you will not be happy with the day ahead. If, however, you are an artist, a dreamer, or a poet at heart you will welcome this gentle space.

While the Moon is in Pisces we all feel softer, more adaptable, sensitive, and vulnerable than usual. Remember this in your interactions with others. They may put on a brave face but underneath they are deeply aware of their human susceptibilities.

Find an emotional retreat for the day if you are able. You may be drawn to water, poetry, and music. Compassion, intuition, and imagination are easily tapped into. Enjoy a movie, a glass of wine, or time on your meditation cushion


LOW ENERGY OFFERS TIME TO REST – Saturday, June 13, 2020

Today begins with a Last Quarter Moon, this occures as the Moon squares the Sun a week after the Full Moon. This can be a difficult time when you have a decision to make that you are not clear about. Consider if your choice is going to move you toward or away from your highest expression. Keep your eyes open and make the best decision you can with the information you have.

Today is likely to be a low energy day as Mars conjuncts Neptune at 10:13 AM EDT. You may not feel trusting of others or even trustworthy yourself. It may feel as though there is discomfort, suspicion, and discouragement in the very air you breath. The best way to work with this is to focus a Neptunian endevour such as meditation, writing poetry, listening to or making music, or simply daydreaming. Things that normally motivate you are missing, let go of expectations and rest.

Today’s Pisces Moon reinforces the Mars Neptune conjunction, speaking even more to the need for rest and dreams.

At 5:03 PM EDT the Moon enters Aries. This will bring a bit of relief and tomorrow will be a more energetic day.

***The Pisces Moon is void-of-course from 8:45 AM EDT until she enters Aries at 5:03 PM EDT. This suggests that what occurs during this time will not have much impact.


GO FOR A RUN – Sunday, June 14, 2020

With the Moon now in Aries you are ready to step forward with a bit more energy than you have had in recent days.

Aries is a Cardinal Fire sign and brings with it not only a strong desire to start something new but to start it fast. The energy of Aries is courageous, tactless, impulsive, energetic, and spontaneous.

The best use of a day with an Aries Moon is to fully embrace your physicality. If you find yourself dealing with frustration go for a run or find another physical activity to channel excess energy into.


* In these weekly reports, I explore the major aspects formed by transit between the planets. I do not consider every aspect that the Moon makes each day as they can be numerous and give rise to fleeting moods. I will consider the final major aspect formed by the Moon prior to its VOC* time, as that aspect holds its influence throughout the VOC*.

The aspects under consideration: conjunctions, sextiles, squares, trines, and oppositions.

The planets I work with: Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto.
