This week starts out slowly but doesn’t stay that way for long.
Monday morning the Moon dreamily passes through Pisces. By midafternoon when the Moon enters Aries life just seems to pick up speed!
We can anticipate some stress on Tuesday as the Aries Moon interacts with the most powerful changes that are rolling through our lives. You will do well to keep an eye on potential irritations, but please don’t give them too much attention.
Pay attention, instead, to the warm flow of healing energy that exists as Venus and the Sun form a Grand Trine to Chiron, the planet of our deepest wounds and our most profound healing. Allow love, light, and warmth to heal your deepest point of sorrow.
Thursday presents us with the creativity of the Taurus Full Moon. It is important to openly express the physical, sensual, and grounded energy of the Earth and human flesh at this solid Full Moon!
Get a massage, cook for your loved ones, make physical contact with the earth, and/or with your own or another human body. Touch your lover, your child, or your friend with devotion and reverence.
Later in the week (Saturday) Mercury leaves Libra behind and enters the deeper, profoundly personal space of Scorpio. Our minds, thoughts, and communications are heading for deeper levels of profound understanding.
This week: The VOC* Moon!
Block off these times in your schedule and avoid making significant decisions or working on important projects during these times. During VOC* Moon, focus on routine tasks. You will be surprised at how this one change will smooth the edges of your life!
Monday November 3, 2014 Moon is VOC* following a Trine to Saturn at 4:04 AM EST and ending at 1:52 PM EST as the Moon enters Aries.
Wednesday, November 5, 2014 Moon is VOC* following an Opposition to Mercury at 8:24 AM EST and ending on at 4:33 PM EST as the Moon enters Taurus.
Friday, November 7, 2014 Moon is VOC* following an Opposition to Saturn at 11:17 AM EST and ending 8:42 PM EST when the Moon enters Gemini.
Sunday, November 9, 2014 Moon is VOC* following a Sextile to Jupiter at 11:22 AM EST and ending Monday morning at 3:38 AM EST.
Monday, November 3, 2014:
Allow Monday morning to bring stability to the soft fantasies of yesterday. The Pisces Moon making a free-flowing Trine to Saturn allows us to put some structure right where our emotional nature needs it.
Following the Trine to Saturn at 4:04AM EST the Moon is VOC* until she enters Aries at 1:52PM EST. Keep a low-profile during the VOC*; staying with routine activities will serve you best.
I would expect Monday to be a pleasant day. Following the Moon’s entry into Aries we put our imagination and our dreams aside in order to take action on what is most necessary now.
Venus Trines Chiron at 6:27AM EST and on Wednesday the Sun Trines Chiron; we need to consider these two as one. In thinking about Chiron as our deepest point of pain, please understand that it is within that wounded place that our deepest gifts reside. This week we are able to see the value that is, as compost, beneath our deepest suffering.
When we understand that there is profound value hidden in those hard to touch places we finally see the need to do the deep work of healing. This week that work can come with a simple acceptance of the flow. Work with it. Don’t make it more difficult than it needs to be.
Tuesday, November 4, 2014:
Tuesday is likely to be the most stressful day of the week. The places in our lives, that are changing more rapidly than we can easily manage, are being strongly activated as the Aries Moon connects with Pluto and Uranus. Our patience wears thin as we want to be on the other side of this major Life transformation. The Aries Moon can bring up the energy of a screaming infant demanding that it’s needs be fulfilled NOW! Do what you can to not be that person. Spending time alone using physical energy in a direct strong manner can help.
Don’t worry. The change you require is coming. The best thing you can commit to today is the development of patience and the development of courage. It takes true courage to hold steady and trust; and isn’t that what patience is all about?
Wednesday, November 5, 2014:
On Monday we talked about the Sun and Venus trine Chiron. Venus made contact on Monday; the Sun makes contact on Wednesday. Clearly these days are connected bringing this energy to the entire first part of this week.
At 1:19PM EST the Trine is exact between the Sun and Chiron. Allow deep healing to be present in your experience. Allow yourself to open the sore spots within to the warmth and love that is simply offered.
The Moon is VOC* following an opposition to Mercury from 8:24AM EST until the Moon enters Taurus at 5:33 PM EST.
The evening is ideal for good food and good, solid human connections! Go ahead and spend money on yourself this evening (after 4:33PM EST). Seek ways to support yourself in feeling solidly embodied and beautiful within that body!

Full Moon in Taurus!
Thursday is a solid day that encompasses the very best of Taurus! We not only have the Full Moon in Taurus on Thursday, but the Moon also makes lovely aspects to Neptune, Mars, and Pluto.
This is a day that you could get a great deal accomplished; or you could choose to simply enjoy the earthy comfort, stability, and reverence of Taurus. There is energy available to dream, to take action, and to express the full power within this stubborn dependable sign.
From a negative perspective we can see Taurus as slow, stodgy, and boring; but where else could you find the patience, the sensuality, and the dependability of Taurus? On Thursday you can open yourself to a powerful sense of reverence. The touch of Taurus is unlike any other, Taurus touches with reverence; imparting comfort reliably.
Full Moon is exact at 5:23PM EST. Howl.
Friday, November 7, 2014:
The Moon remains in Taurus with an opposition to Saturn at 11:17AM EST. Following that Opposition the Moon is VOC* until she enters Gemini at 8:45PM EST.
Friday is a simple day that does not really amount to much. If there are things that must be accomplished make sure to do them before 11:17AM EST. Actually, I would recommend that you get up early and accomplish all that you possibly can before the moon goes VOC*. You could certainly get more done in these few hours than you could in some full days! You may be stubborn and very hard-working!
During the VOC* period you can still get a great deal accomplished if you focus on routine tasks that simply need to be completed. Don’t spend your time on creative projects or any thing that you expect to grow as you move forward. Keep it to the routine tasks so that you will not be disappointed at the long-term results.
With the moon entering Gemini at 8:45 PM EST it could be difficult to get to sleep on Friday night! Okay so it is Friday! This could be a really fun evening to go out with friends! Enjoy the company of others! Don’t worry about getting home early! Time with others; talking, communicating, bring your natural curiosity to the table; the world is a big place to explore! The exploration that begins tonight will carry you through and into a lovely social weekend!
Saturday November 8, 2014:
This is a weekend of curiosity! Don’t expect those around you to be mature, consistent, or patient! Don’t even look for that kind of energy in yourself or others. The Moon is in Gemini throughout the day highlighting restlessness, curiosity, enthusiasm, and alert intelligence!
Consider Mercury as representing the way we think, what we think about, and how we communicate our thoughts. Mercury entered Libra on September 2nd and has been mostly in Libra since (due to the retrograde ze was in Scorpio between September 27 and October 10). At 6:08PM EST Mercury enters Scorpio, pay attention and you will feel the shift as your thoughts deepen and become more private. We may be less interested, in the coming weeks, in utilizing a diplomatic approach. Our thoughts go to powerful and deep places; we want to connect intellectually in a powerful transformative manner. We are more likely to see the importance of our communications, to understand how significant our words are.
Think about the transformation that would occur in your life if the secrets you hold were suddenly revealed; if others could see the deeper contents of your mind. While Mercury is in Scorpio things may be revealed. Be prepared to find out things that have been kept from your awareness. Be prepared for others to discover some of your more private issues or circumstances. Consider the depth of your mind and the minds of those closest to you. So much is hidden even from ourselves. Work to uncover what can bring the truest transformation to your life through your thinking, communicating mind.
Sunday, November 9, 2014:
Sunday continues the weekend’s great social energy! Please take friends out for brunch on Sunday morning! This is a wonderful time to spend with friends and conversation. You can expect the energy to feel light, inquisitive, curious, and fun. However, with Mercury now in Scorpio, the conversations themselves will have deep meaning. There is serious business beneath the play!
Moon in Gemini, Mercury in Scorpio. Playful energy exists within deep conversation!
Following a Sextile to Jupiter at 11:22 AM EST the Moon is VOC* until early Monday morning.
Think back to August 18, 2014. At that time Venus Conjunct Jupiter, beginning a cycle whose purpose is to expand LOVE. On Sunday we come to the First Quarter Square of this cycle. Consider what began in mid-August; ask yourself what action needs to be taken now to push this cycle in the direction of expanding that love! Make sure an action is taken! The full results will be clear in mid January (Venus Opposes Jupiter) when the creative energy between these two is released into the world or into your life.
Show and express love!
* in these weekly reports I am exploring 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 are often fleeting moods. I will consider the final major aspect formed by the Moon prior to it’s VOC time, as that aspect holds it’s influence throughout the VOC*
The Aspects I consider: Conjunctions, Sextiles, Squares, Trines, and Oppositions
The Planets I am working with: Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto.
*VOC (void of course) refers to the period of time between the final aspect that the Moon makes while in one sign until she enters the next sign. This can consist of several minutes or many hours. These periods are best handled with little expectation of accomplishment; times ideally suited for rest and contemplation.
