The Changing Moon this Week
A tiny brief look at the moon’s progress each day:
Monday: The Pisces Moon is happy, drifty, and dreamy today as it reaches for the Full Moon at 7:55 AM EDT. Contemplate where practical reality supports your dreams and imagination. More information about the Full Moon and how it impacts you will drop into your email box on Monday morning if you are on Astrolore’s email list. The Moon enters assertive Aries at 11:13 PM EDT.
Tuesday: The Moon, newly in Aries comes into opposition with Mars at 7:03 AM EDT. You may feel anger or frustration if you don’t give yourself a physical outlet. Lift weights, go for a run, any solitary physical activity will allow the day to begin without a fuss. If those around you are aggravated, just step aside. At 12:44 PM EDT, the Moon sextile Saturn helping stabilize your emotions for the remainder of the day.
Wednesday: The Moon continues through Aries allowing your internal leader or pioneer to shine. Push forward into the day with courage and determination. At 9:38 PM EDT, the Moon forms a difficult square aspect to Pluto. There are other, non-Moon-related difficulties today so don’t let this one be the straw that breaks the camel’s back. Be kind and go to sleep early.
Thursday: At 8:38 AM EDT the Moon enters stable, lovely Taurus, bringing a helpful antidote to the difficulties of yesterday. When the Moon is in Taurus we long for beauty and opulence. Fill your home with flowers or other expressions of style and elegance. At 10:40 PM EDT the Moon square Saturn may leave you feeling shabby and out of sorts. Sleep is the best cure for any late-night Moon difficulty.
Friday: Today’s Taurus Moon steps outside of its usual stability as she has a direct encounter with Uranus at 12:57 PM EDT. You may encounter something surprising or even shocking, something that wakes you to a new vision of loveliness. At 4:16 PM EDT with an opposition to Venus, you may feel great sensitivity or love toward someone in your environment.
Saturday: The Taurus Moon continues with us for most of the day. At 9:10 AM EDT, she forms a flowing trine aspect to Pluto empowering whatever practical plans you have for the day. Take the bull by the horns, plan an activity that involves social connections, or creating beauty. At 8:37 PM EDT, the Moon enters Gemini. You may want to stay up late talking, writing, or gathering information of some sort.
Sunday: Today is a great day for connecting with friends and engaging in various conversations. Interactions should be fun, effortless, but not insignificant. The Gemini Moon forms a flowing trine aspect to the Sun, Saturn, and Mars. Enjoy.

PISCES FULL MOON – ILLUMINATING THE ETHEREAL
My third-floor bedroom windows give me a clear view of the Moon each night. It is one of the things that I love about my tiny apartment and I delight in watching the Moon swell each month in the days before the Full Moon.
Today’s Pisces Moon is happy, drifty, and dreamy as it reaches for the Full Moon which is exact at 7:55 AM EDT. Contemplate where practical reality supports your imagination and ability to dream. This Full Moon brings us to the culmination point of the monthly lunar cycle that began at the Virgo New Moon on September 6th. It also brings us to the full illumination of the larger cycle that began at the Pisces New Moon on March 13th. Think about what began and how you see the results of any actions that began at those times. The Pisces Full Moon brings sensitivity, creativity, intuition, and dreams into focus. You will need to use your more practical side to help bring the ethereal into focus.
Mercury trines Jupiter at 6:52 PM EDT offering an evening of optimism and a general sense of well-being. One great way to use this transit would be to make plans for the future. Think about what you would like to learn or where you would like to travel to in the coming year. Sketch out some plans to bring these desires to reality. The Moon is VOC after 7:55 PM EDT (making no further major aspect before entering the next sign), therefore complete your date with planning at that point.
The Moon enters assertive Aries at 11:13 PM EDT. The next few days will bring more ability for forceful action and less focus on the intangible and unseen.
_The Pisces Moon is void-of-course from 7:55 PM EDT until she enters Aries at 11:13 PM EDT. This suggests that what occurs during this time will not have much impact._

STEADY ACTION HELPS AVOID CONFLICTS OR MISHAPS
Today’s dynamic assertive Aries Moon is highly activated as she forms an opposition with Mars the ruling planet of Aries at 7:03 AM EDT. This heightens your need for solitary determination and action this morning. You may feel driven to act without delay and without consideration for others. Slow down and wait for this to pass as anger and accidents could result from moving too quickly.
A physical outlet this morning (steady, not fast) will help you to avoid conflicts or mishaps. Get out for a jog, lift weights, travel a long distance on your stationary bike. Whatever you need to do to move stuck energy without recklessness can prevent serious problems.
At 12:44 PM EDT, the Moon sextiles Saturn stabilizes internal aggravation with a more emotionally mature perspective. If there were any conflicts this morning an apology this afternoon will allow the rest of the day to pass smoothly.

EXCITING ENCOUNTERS – PERSONAL FREEDOM

LIVING IN A HUMAN BODY
Today brings a full day with the Moon in sensual slow-moving Taurus. However, be forewarned that today’s Taurus Moon steps briefly outside of its usual stability as she has a direct conversation with Uranus at 12:57 PM EDT. You may encounter something surprising that wakes you to a new vision of loveliness. It won’t last long so grab the unique gift if it comes your way. At 4:16 PM EDT with the Moon in opposition to Venus, you may feel great sensitivity or love toward someone in your environment. Enjoy this and hold it close while you can.
With the Moon in Taurus immerse yourself in physical sensation, enjoy being embodied. If possible spend time outdoors barefoot on the earth. Listen to the birds and the trees sing. Pay attention to the messages that the earth offers to those who listen. Spend time cuddling and connecting with those you love, human or otherwise. Listen to music, get or give a massage, cook a beautiful meal for your loved ones. Do not pressure yourself. Focus on activities that revolve around comfort and the body. Taurus supports you to build and maintain the practical structures that support your life. When the Moon is in Taurus slow down, quiet down, and spend time in stillness.

ACTION TOWARD STEADY PROGRESS

EASY REPARTEE & FUN INTERACTIONS
“And once the storm is over, you won’t remember how you made it through, how you managed to survive. You won’t even be sure, whether the storm is really over. But one thing is certain. When you come out of the storm, you won’t be the same person who walked in.” – Haruki Murakami, ‘Kafka On The Shore’.
