ROSE COLORED GLASSES 

Monday, October 21, 2019

The week begins with the Moon in nurturing and sensitive Cancer. Make a nice breakfast for your household this morning or heat up muffins for everyone to grab on the way out the door. Don’t underestimate how loved folks feel if you feed them when the Moon is in Cancer.

The Third Quarter Moon Phase is exact this morning at 8:40 AM EDT. The First and the Third Quarter Moon Phases occur when the Sun and Moon are in a challenging square aspect to each other. The First Quarter Phase comes between the New Moon and the Full Moon. The Third Quarter Moon comes between the Full Moon and the New Moon. Both of these Phases require that you make a decision that will be important to your future.

Consider the difficulties and opportunities that are presented today. Choose the direction you take with integrity and kindness and you will move in the right direction.

At 12:29 PM EDT, the Moon enters Leo and you can put the sensitivities and the tissues away. The Leo Moon will encourage you to express the most colorful side of your personality dramatically.

At 3:39 PM EDT, lovely Venus trines dreamy Neptune. This transit is a sweet one that will open your heart to beautiful daydreams of romance and fantasies. You feel tender and compassionate and see the best in everyone. You may not, however, see reality too clearly. But it is a Trine, after all, so enjoy the simplicity and beauty of your fantasy.

The Cancer Moon is void-of-course from 8:40 AM EDT until she enters Leo at 12:29 PM EDT. This condition suggests that what occurs during this time will not have a significant impact.

 


DISPLAY GENEROSITY

Tuesday, October 22, 2019

Tomorrow the Sun enters Scorpio ushering us into the darkest phase of the year. Take advantage of the last day with the Sun in Libra by considering who will be by your side as you enter this time of seclusion. I suspect that Libra season comes before the Scorpio season so we are less likely to go into the darkness alone.

With the Moon in Leo, let your most childlike expression out to play. Look for inspiration that will encourage warmth, generosity, and open-hearted self-expression. Put the grandness of your personality on full display.

Leo is a very personal sign, and when the Moon is here, expect folks to take things very personally. It is easy to offend or be offended, so give others a pass and be especially complementary in all encounters.

Give and receive recognition, be generous in your undertakings, play with children, play dress-up, and be creative. Now is not the time to hide your light under a bushel.

 


SUN ENTERS SCORPIO – A DEEP DIVE

Wednesday, October 23, 2019

Today we come to a powerful seasonal shift as the Sun enters Scorpio bringing us fully into autumn. Mercury and Venus have paved the way, and Mercury will spend its entire retrograde (October 31 – November 20) in Scorpio. This transit suggests a deeper intensity than usual in this Scorpio Season.

My mind turns to early evening darkness, driving on roads littered with spiraling leaves with a murder of crows gathering overhead. Leaves crunch underfoot, warm flannel sheets are on the bed, and soup simmers on the stove. I love this time of year and yet know many who have a profound distaste for it.

Scorpio is a sign of extremes, of power that digs deep to find what is hidden below. During this time, we are not interested in making things look good and have no patience with what is superficial. We want power and intensification.

Look to the house that holds Scorpio in your chart to understand what is highlighted in your own life.

The Moon enters Virgo at 3:29 PM EDT, offering the perfect evening to get flannel sheets on the bed and start a pot of soup simmering on the stove.

The Leo Moon is void-of-course from 5:14 AM EDT until she enters Virgo at 3:29 PM EDT. This condition suggests that what occurs during this time will not have a significant impact.

 


KEEP KINDNESS IN MIND

Thursday, October 24, 2019

It generally takes us a few days to adjust when the Sun changes sign. Acknowledge and honor your adjustment. It isn’t always easy as we follow the Sun into the darkness of Scorpio.

Today, with the Moon in Virgo, it is a good day to pay attention to that shift. Virgo likes us to be rather quiet as we pay attention to whatever details present themselves for our consideration.

As you go about the tasks and chores of your day, give thought to the broader issues and deep emotions that are bubbling up.

You will find those issues reflected in whatever house Scorpio holds in your chart.

Today is a great day to focus on organization and finding ways to be of helpful service to others. Pay attention to your habits and prepare to develop healthier ones. Offer a helping hand to others without asking to be in the spotlight for doing so. Emotional gratification comes by helping others from a place of humility.

During the Virgo Moon, you can fall into a trap of being critical of yourself and others, so please remember to be kind.

 


INFUSE YOUR LIFE WITH LOVE

Friday, October 25, 2019

Today should be a day of pleasure. The Moon continues through practical service-oriented Virgo until she enters Libra this evening.

A lovely sextile aspect from Venus, the planet of love and beauty, to Pluto, the planet of empowerment, profoundly impacts the day and into the evening. This transit suggests that opportunities for powerful love are waiting on the sidelines.

Sextile aspects are positive, like trines, but with one crucial difference. A trine is a gift; there is nothing we have to do to claim it. A sextile is an opportunity; you have to keep your eyes open and be available. Venus sextile Pluto can present you with a new love or the opportunity to deepen an existing one.

Alternatively, this transit can refer to your creativity or your finances. Keep your eyes open for a new love interest, friendship, creative ideas, or financial opportunities. The key is noticing when the opportunity arrives. Pay attention to people or circumstances that engage your curiosity. Follow up on clues that fall in your path like bread crumbs.

The Moon enters pleasure-seeking Libra at 4:20 PM EDT. With the Sun in Scorpio and the Moon in Libra, under the influence of Venus sextile Pluto, you may have a highly successful romantic encounter this evening. Don’t waste your time on an encounter that is lukewarm or superficial. Infuse your connection with love and heat.

The Virgo Moon is void-of-course from 9:00 AM EDT until she enters Libra at 4:20 PM EDT. This condition suggests that what occurs during this time will not have a significant impact.

 


GIVE EACH OTHER A PASS

Saturday, October 26, 2019

The weekend begins with everyone playing nice and trying not to rock the boat. You may start the day believing that you can manage any issues that arise with diplomacy and tact. 

By mid-afternoon, when the Moon joins with Mars and forms a square to Saturn, you are not sure that diplomacy is going to do the trick. You may feel angry or frustrated but not know how to deal with these feelings. Don’t go the passive-aggressive route. Do your best to speak with clarity and face the circumstances at hand.

Ask a friend or partner to share in a creative venture this evening. Cook or create something beautiful together.

No one is perfect. We all make mistakes, so please, give each other a pass. If you squint your eyes the tiniest amount, you may be able to see the beauty in the difficulty. Try that tonight. Do what you can to bring balance and kindness to the situation. Lovely background music won’t hurt.

 


SCORPIO NEW MOON – PLANT A SEED OF DEEP TRUTH

Sunday, October 27, 2019

The Libra Moon would dearly like to make nice and keep everyone happy, but there are complications today that make that an arduous undertaking. 

At 10:30 AM EDT, Mars, who is already uncomfortable in Libra, makes a challenging square aspect to Saturn. This transit can bring frustrations, aggravations, limitations, and anger. One of the problems with this set-up is that you may not know how to release the anger because Mars in Libra feels unable to push directly as he would typically. You may think that someone has you under their thumb, and you are not able to fight back. 

Your best approach is to hold steady and don’t try to get more. Be satisfied with what you do have. Find a project that requires a physical effort of the slow and steady kind. Don’t go for a run; instead climb a steep mountain, slowly and steadily. Plod forward with patience and doggedness.

At 4:29 PM EDT, the Moon enters Scorpio, bringing your emotions to deep levels of passion and empowerment. The Scorpio New Moon occurs at 11:38 PM EDT. I include the Scorpio New Moon Ritual here but best to wait until tomorrow afternoon. Give the Moon time to gain some distance from the heat of the Sun before commencing with the ritual. 

~Scorpio New Moon Ritual ~

Take a moment to write down the changes you wish to begin, create, or increase in this Moon Cycle. The Scorpio New Moon suggests that you plant a seed of deep passion, introspection, truth, and trust. To get to the bottom of an issue, peer into the dark corners of your own heart.

Have two candles available. Light the first to represent your situation as it currently stands. Light the second candle as inspiration for the shift you crave during this cycle. Take a moment to focus as you light each candle. Imagine drawing your desire toward you as you physically bring the two candles closer together.

Do this each day for two weeks. At the Full Moon, you will bring the candles fully together as you acknowledge what has changed and will continue over the coming months.

Keep in mind that the energy you infuse into this cycle will continue over the next six months until the Scorpio Full Moon in May 2020.

The Libra Moon is void-of-course from 4:21 AM EDT until she enters Scorpio at 4:29 PM EDT. This condition suggests that what occurs during this time will not have a significant impact.

 



 

* 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.

October 14, 2019, through October 20, 2019

 

There is still space available at the retreat for Friday during the day and one room available for the whole weekend. Join us, you will be very glad you did!

Some comments from last year’s participants:

It was a magical time of wonderful camaraderie with a group of women I’d never met before. I thoroughly enjoyed the experience!!!”

I am grateful to have been a part of this wonderful event! Thank you for letting me join. It was exactly what I needed.”

Really loved the environment of the space and the calm energy of the speakers and participants. I felt that the information presented was extremely valuable for beginners, like myself, and experienced practitioners alike. I loved the variety between session subjects and the ability to touch on a number of important overarching astrological techniques within each of them.”

It was remarkable how I was able to communicate with people. I have had issues with feeling awkward and not being good at small talk in the past. It was amazing to meet others who talk in the language of astrology and to be received so warmly.”

FANNING THE FLAMES

Monday, October 14, 2019

Once you get through today, the rest of the week will be smooth sailing. In the earliest hours of the morning, Mercury forms a sweet sextile to Saturn. This transit allows you to speak your mind readily throughout the day.

But, the hot-under-the-collar Aries Moon fans the flames of a challenging square aspect between the Sun and Pluto. You may not want to risk speaking your mind. The undercurrent of power dynamics makes you question the safety of speaking your mind.

You feel that you are under the thumb of an institution, a family, a job, or a person. Double-check yourself that you are not holding someone under yours. Look into your own reflection. Consider the power dynamics that are at play in every direction.

At 12:24 PM, the heat of the Aries Moon cools down as the Moon enters stable, comfort-seeking Taurus. Even so, the comfort that Taurus seeks is not easy to find as new information rattles you at bedtime.

****************

The Aries Moon is void-of-course until she enters Taurus at 12:24 PM EDT. This condition suggests that what occurs during this time will not have a significant impact.

 

OPEN TO FLOW

Tuesday, October 15, 2019

Today’s Taurus Moon encourages you to release the difficulties of yesterday as you focus on calm and stable productivity. Pay attention to the sensual components of your life. Pamper yourself with good food, extra sleep, a massage, and love-making. Tidy up your desk, put flowers in your sightline, and make a cup of tea.

At 6:44 PM EDT, Mercury trine Neptune increases your imagination, intuition, and non-verbal sensitivities. Your interest in vibrational energies and spirituality is keen. This transit makes it easier than usual to express what is intangible in your mind and heart. It may be challenging to find words to describe experiences, but the essence is transmitted nonetheless. This evening is made for guided meditations or simply daydreaming as your mind is susceptible and open to Flow.

 

THE DETERMINATION OF TAURUS

Wednesday, October 16, 2019

The Taurus Moon begins today with a powerful trine aspect to Pluto, the planet of empowerment. This dynamic aspect highlights the stamina of the Taurus Moon.

The day’s Moon-sign is a dominant contributing factor to the emotional atmosphere of the day.  How we feel is directly related to the sign through which the Moon is moving.

When the Moon is in Taurus, we talk about sensuality, the love of music, touch, beauty, and good food. Given the association with such loveliness, it is easy to miss the strength and determination of this commanding sign. Taurus is an Earth Sign, offering practicality and stability. It is also a Fixed sign, suggesting tenacity and endurance. Don’t underestimate the hearty backbone required to hold the beauty and sweetness of Taurus.

At 10:30 PM EDT, the Moon enters Gemini. If you start a conversation before bed, you may not get to sleep as early as you anticipated. Your mind and your desire to communicate may keep you up well into the night. Not to worry, you will have a few days to continue this conversation. Jot down a few notes so as not to forget what needs to be said and get some sleep.

****************

The Taurus Moon is void-of-course from 4:38 AM EDT until she enters Gemini at 10:30 PM EDT. This condition suggests that what occurs during this time will not have a significant impact.

 

LISTEN WITH AN ENGAGED MIND

Thursday, October 17, 2019

The steadfast determination of yesterday’s Taurus Moon has given way to the quick thinking of today’s Gemini Moon. You may wake up this morning with a great deal to think about. Your thoughts are fast-moving, and your job is to keep up with all of them. You have things to say, ideas to develop, friends to meet up with, questions to ask, and conversations to have. Your mind is wide awake, and your curiosity is high.

Remember that you can learn much more when you listen than when you speak. Try speaking just enough to encourage others to have their say and then sit back and listen. Before bed, make a list of what you learned with your mouth shut, your ears listening, and your mind curious and engaged.

 

SHARE IDEAS AND CURIOSITY

Friday, October 18, 2019

In the years before I was a working astrologer, my jobs involved engaging with many people every day. I always paid attention to the sign the Moon was in, understanding its impact on the workplace.

I remember Fridays when the Moon was in Gemini because those were fun days. Everyone had ideas to share and were anxious to talk about the weekend ahead and the plans they had. It was difficult for folks to settle down and pay attention to the work at hand. As fun as those Fridays were for the employees, they were equally challenging for the employers who were responsible for productivity.

Notice how this dynamic plays out in your workplace today. Because the Moon speaks to the atmosphere of the day, you can expect lots of conversation, sharing of ideas, and curiosity.

Gemini is an Air sign, focusing attention on the intellect. It is also a mutable sign, suggesting the ability to go with the flow and adapt easily. Expect a lot of casual talk and the ability for those around you to change their minds and ideas and direction at the drop of a hat.

****************

The Gemini Moon is void-of-course from 10:14 PM EDT until she enters Cancer early Saturday morning. This condition suggests that what occurs during this time will not have a significant impact.

 

VULNERABILITY & DEEP UNDERSTANDING

Saturday, October 19, 2019

Prepare for a pleasant, sensitive, powerful, yet exciting day. At 6:43 AM EDT, the Moon enters domestic, sometimes moody Cancer. The best way to spend this morning is to enjoy comfort food with folks who support your deep sensitivities.

You may feel self-protective as you struggle to understand your deep vulnerabilities. You see where others need protection and deep caring as well. It is easy to offer kindness and maternal love.

At 3:46 PM EDT, the Moon forms a lovely sextile to Uranus. This suggests an opportunity to discover an exciting outlet for those vulnerabilities or at least a new perception of them. You can relax into more objectivity.

At 6:20 PM EDT Mercury sextile Pluto gifts you with depth and intensity in your thinking and conversations. Profound and powerful ideas and thoughts find a way to you. You will want to engage in probing study or dig deeply into your own mind. This is a time when you can uncover secrets or understand deep levels of study. Keep your eyes open for new ways of viewing old previously stuck issues and problems. What has been mentally stuck can become clear.

****************

The Gemini Moon is void-of-course until she enters Cancer at 6:43 AM EDT. This condition suggests that what occurs during this time will not have a significant impact.

 

MUTUAL AND LASTING CONNECTIONS

Sunday, October 20, 2019

This may be a moody day with the Cancer Moon making connections with 6 of 9 planets. If you are uncomfortable with how you feel, relax as it will quickly change.

Your moodiness is balanced with a sextile between Venus, the planet of love and Saturn, the planet of commitment and stabilization.

You may find yourself developing a deep love and care toward folks in your environment. You desire serious long-term committed connections that are mutual and lasting. You are practical and your common sense is accentuated in how you approach others. Look for mutual understanding in the development of long term plans and partnerships.

Today is also great for serious creative projects and the development of financial plans that will support your future.

Astrolore’s Weekly Astrology Weather

September 30, 2019, through October 6, 2019

 

 

 

The time between the New Moon (Saturday, September 28th) and the Full Moon (October 13th) is a time of opening, expanding, and growing awareness. These times each month are good for beginning new projects, new connections, new understanding, and new ways of thinking and being.

…..

It is clear what has begun moving forward in US politics since Saturn turned direct on September 18th. Regardless of which side of the cultural divide you are on, the movement is clear.

This week Pluto, the planet of power, coercion, and obsession, also turns direct after being retrograde since late April 2019.*

Both Saturn and Pluto are moving through Capricorn, the sign of business, government, and the patriarchy. These are very slow-moving planets. Saturn has been in Capricorn since late December 2017, Pluto since 2008.

Think about what this could portend as we move toward the conjunction of these two planets (structure meets power) in January 2020. The US government and the US cultural divide are tied together on a collision track.

Hope requires a commitment to transformation. We must bring ourselves and our leaders back to honor, integrity, kindness, and love.

Regarding your personal life, look to the house that holds Capricorn. This house is the same area of your life we talked about last week when Saturn turned direct. If you see a collision coming, make sure you are building integrity and love in this area. It may not be easy but this work is what you need to commit to, THE MOST important thing.

*It is interesting to note that both Saturn and Pluto had been retrograde since late April 2019. It brings up questions about what exactly went underground at that time.

The last time Saturn and Pluto joined together was in late 1982, before that 1947, before that 1915. Look to the circumstances of big power during those years for hints of recurring themes.

RESPECT & UNCONDITIONAL KINDNESS

Monday, September 30, 2019

Today’s Moon requires that you face your life direction with passion and intensity. With the Moon in Scorpio, the general theme of the day is to dig below the surface. Now is the time to follow lines of intensity to understand the power and control hidden beneath the surface. It is important to avoid manipulation and suspicion in the pursuit of truth. Find a balance point between digging too deeply into dark corners and avoiding those corners altogether. Your emotions are powerful today and can lead you to passionate encounters.

At 2:55 PM EDT, the Moon opposes Uranus, perhaps bringing emotional upset and turmoil. Avoid engaging your automatic impulsive reactions to allow this upset to pass quickly. Don’t make important decisions this afternoon as you are easily distracted by shiny things that call to you. Do allow yourself to see a new perspective. Engage your curiosity about something you believe is a ‘given’. Allow yourself to step into the shoes of someone you don’t agree with. Show respect and unconditional kindness.

…..

The Libra Moon is void-of-course until she enters Scorpio at 5:42 AM EDT. This condition suggests that what occurs during this time will not have a significant impact.

 

 

TAKE A STAND FOR LOVE

Tuesday, October 1, 2019

The Scorpio Moon continues to push your emotions into the exploration of hidden depths. This intensity may feel powerful and compelling or brooding and darkly reflective. Today is not a light-hearted day. What do you want to get to the bottom of? Consider that as you dig beneath the surface.

It is more than the Moon placement that brings this depth and intensity. Venus in Libra is pushing against the power of Pluto with a difficult square aspect today. Personal values of cooperation and love challenge the powers that be. You can feel it in the air. Something must be released now in order to begin a healthy cycle of empowered Love in mid-December.

In today’s aspect, along with Saturn and Pluto’s upcoming conjunction, I see the face of Greta Thunberg. Significantly, Greta has Sun, Moon, and Mercury in Capricorn.

How and where in your life are you standing for love, cooperation, and interdependence against forces of power and greed? Notice how this theme is playing out all around you. Commit to making the world a better place with kindness and connection.

 

LOOK FOR ADVENTURE

Wednesday, October 2, 2019

A bit of the intensity of yesterday may linger, but generally, you can expect today to be lighter and easier than yesterday. The Moon enters Sagittarius at 7:45 AM just in time to bring an optimistic and positive vibe to the day.

In contrast to the past few days, you will look outside of yourself to expand your view of the world by experiencing or learning something new.

Gather a few friends and look for an adventure that will take you outside your normal routines. Go in search of a good time; bring humor and spontaneity along.

…..

The Scorpio Moon is void-of-course from 5:47 AM EDT until she enters Sagittarius at 7:45 AM EDT. This condition suggests that what occurs during this time will not have a significant impact.

 

 

SECRETS REVEALED

Thursday, October 3, 2019

Tiny, powerful Pluto turns direct today after being retrograde since late April. This is as intense as it sounds and there is much to consider.

The impact will be powerful if you have personal planets between 19 – 22 degrees of Cardinal signs. The cardinal signs are Aries, Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn. If this is the case, contact me or another experienced authentic astrologer for a consultation.

From a global and cultural perspective, the importance here is profound. We are officially taking the final steps to the major Saturn- Pluto conjunction we have been waiting for. This conjunction is exact on January 13, 2020. There will be no more hesitation, delay, postponement, or deferment. We are heading to the brink of what has been building. This is a remarkable time in history. The last time there was a conjunction between Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn was in 1518 (no, that is not a typo.) An interesting historical fact from that year is that the African slave trade began. Here we have come full circle as we face the rampant systemic racism that plagues our culture and subordinates so many of our friends and neighbors. Have we learned enough since 1518 to expunge the muck surrounding that stain on humanity? Don’t turn away, this is a personal job for each of us.

Watch for personal and collective secrets to be revealed and unspoken desires to rise to the surface.

Adding to this intensity, Mercury enters Scorpio today. This aspect supports your ability and willingness to look into the dark basement of your own heart as well as the darkness in society. Secrets are being exposed. Mercury will remain in Scorpio until December 9th due to a retrograde cycle which keeps it in one sign (Scorpio) longer than usual.

If you have secrets of your own, particularly if they involve the house that Capricorn holds in your chart, it is best to bring them to the light yourself. Do not wait for an unplanned revelation that will likely occur in early 2020.

 

 

HONESTY, KINDNESS, & ACTION

Friday, October 4, 2019

Mars, the planet of action and force, entered Libra, the sign of diplomacy. This sounds like an awkward combination and it is. When Mars is in Libra we may try to use charm to go after what requires a sledgehammer. We may become so busy trying to respond to both sides of an issue that we are unable to have much of an impact on anything. It will be best to take full responsibility for your actions as you balance your needs with the needs of others. Practice honesty and directness even in the face of being seen as less than ‘nice’. Mars remains in Libra until November 19th.

Do your best to approach others with honesty.  Staunchly avoid the tendency toward passive-aggressiveness, the negative expression of this Mars placement.

At 1:44 PM EDT, the Moon enters Capricorn. This shift is likely to focus your attention on the more serious aspects of your life. Your career, finance, and success goals come to the forefront of your attention. You can take important steps forward in the service of those goals. Today is not a friendly or emotional day but one from which you can squeeze a great deal of accomplishment.

…..

The Sagittarius Moon is void-of-course from 3:34 AM EDT until she enters Capricorn at 1:44 PM EDT. This condition suggests that what occurs during this time will not have a significant impact.

 

 

PREPARE FOR WINTER – SUPPORT LOVE

Saturday, October 5, 2019

This weekend is a serious one, not a time that you’ll be interested in parties or social activities. If there is a weekend for work, this is it. Here in the Northern Hemisphere, we are heading into the cold season. This is a great weekend to focus on preparations for winter. Complete the work in your garden to settle it down for the coming year. Cut down perennials and pull up annuals. Rake the lawn. Indoors there is plenty to do as well. Seal any drafts, service your furnace, clean out your gutters, and store your deck furniture. At the end of the day, you will feel great about all that you have accomplished.

At 12:48 PM EDT, the Moon reaches its First Quarter Phase. This phase of the Moon implies both difficulties and opportunities. Pay attention to interpersonal issues that arise and find the opportunity within that. Now is a time when your choices and decisions will move your life in one direction or another.

Consider the seed you planted on September 28th at the Libra New Moon. Take an action today in support of moving the desire of that seed forward. If you planted a seed of Love for the New Moon, work with your partner as you build or support your life together. As you clean out the garden, begin the plan for the garden you will plant next year. Bring great pleasure to work and effort.

 

 

LIFE IS SERIOUS BUSINESS

Sunday, October 6, 2019

The Moon continues through Capricorn, offering another day for the work you began yesterday. If you stick to your efforts you will start next week feeling satisfied with your accomplishments. Achievement and manifestation of success are what motivates you today. You are resourceful and want to use every minute and all your energy to accomplish your goals.

This may not be a particularly joyful or fun day but it can be extremely productive.

You are more aware than usual of the passage of time and the reality of its limits. Focus on practical undertakings with long term success in mind. Determine to focus on your most realistic goals today.

Shortly before midnight, the Moon enters Aquarius. You will be starting the work-week with the energy of innovation and excitement.

…..

The Capricorn Moon is void-of-course from 7:26 PM EDT until she enters Aquarius at 11:43 PM EDT. This condition suggests that what occurs during this time will not have a significant impact.

The death of a deeply loved family matriarch has left me a bit off-kilter as I absorb the shifting sands of change.

There seems to be a soft, unexpected disorientation surrounding the tasks of the day and the sleep of the night.

The death of a deeply loved family matriarch has left me a bit off-kilter as I absorb the shifting sands of change.

.

The death of a loved one brings more adjustment and personal development than we anticipate and takes time to understand.

I would like to see us individually and culturally consider more consciously the issues of death and dying. This is a contemplation that has been with me since my first significant loss to death of an infant sister when I was 8 years old.

Do not underestimate the powerful help that Hospice offers. Reach out if you have questions.

A note from a client: My session with Laurie was completely gratifying in every way. Wise, warm and witty, Laurie’s explanation as to how the stars work with us as we learn the lessons of this life was nothing less than revelatory. Careful and kind, Laurie gave me information that is bound to inform how I move forward from widowhood into the next phase of my life. I feel guided, warned, bolstered by my personal astrology as it was explained to me by Laurie. I would love to study with her one day because she makes it all so accessible and relevant. I cannot recommend her highly enough. She knows her craft and she is a born teacher. A gift to her profession and to all of us who are fortunate enough to be directed her way! A beautiful spirit! ~ ER from New Jersey Make your appointment today!

A note from a client:

I highly recommend an astrological reading with Laurie. Her insights are human, helpful, and enlightening. Laurie is helpful and accepting of where people are in their lives as well as challenging them to grow.

For those that do not study astrology Laurie consultation is easily accessible. I have used Laurie’s astrological services for many years and always learn and grow through our conversations.

Her readings are easy to hear and insightful. I never feel lost in the “ether” of astrology when Laurie is explaining it. She brings a wealth of experience, desire to teach and understand, and general fun to her readings.

I highly recommend Laurie for any teaching and/or astrological readings. ~ JC from The Dalles, Oregon

MATURITY REQUIRED

Monday, August 12, 2019:

The Moon is in Capricorn, bringing with it a level of seriousness, maturity, and caution. You may wake this morning shaking your head with displeasure at a reality you would rather not face. 

Wouldn’t it be nice if while the Sun was in warm bright Leo, we could ignore hard truths? Your best bet is to open your eyes to clarity on the actual situation. Whatever the challenge is, look at it directly.

The Capricorn Moon joins with Saturn (5:54 AM EDT) and Pluto (6:12 PM EDT) suggesting and offering these difficulties. Allow space to be alone in serious contemplation today.

Whatever house contains Capricorn in your chart is likely the main area of hardship, frustration, and struggle. Keep an eye on this area of your life as it will be a major place of required effort for many months to come.

THE STATE OF THE WORLD

Tuesday, August 13, 2019:

Some crankiness from yesterday may linger this morning, but when the Moon leaves Capricorn you will feel the shift.

At 11:36 AM EDT the Moon enters innovative Aquarius, renewing your hope in humanitarian ideals. This shift brings us a much easier day than yesterday. Your mood is lighter and you are able to see things with objectivity.

Aquarius is innovative and unconventional. When the Moon is here you are able to see the other side of the coin without your emotions getting in the way.

Today is a great day to listen to others who have very different beliefs than you. Widen your interests, look for a more expansive or humanitarian perspective. Aquarius suggests the need to march to the beat of a different drummer. Go ahead and express the parts of yourself that are most unique.

You can anticipate that others will have more understanding of your quirks than usual. You will care less if they do not.

Engage in intellectual conversations about the state of the world. What can be done to help the suffering of humanity?

LOVE – FRIENDSHIP – CREATIVITY

Wednesday, August 14, 2019:

The Sun joins with Venus today, focusing your attention on love, partnerships, finances, beauty, and creativity. This meetup offers a pleasant day made for socialization, romance, and friendships.

If you have personal planets near 21 degrees of Leo, this will be a particularly great day for you.

For all of you, go ahead and focus on pleasure, comfort, and fun. This is a great time to purchase items for your wardrobe or to hire a home decorator. Take advantage of your greatly improved sense of beauty, style, and ornamentation. The Moon in Aquarius will keep you from spending money from a place of emotional neediness. Your desires come from a true sense of harmony and beauty.

 

Are you nervous and uncertain as you look at the path ahead? Let Laurie help you see your life from a perspective that will illuminate the way forward. Together we will explore your hopes, dreams, goals, your current path, and your life purpose. Make your appointment today!  

 

 

AQUARIUS FULL MOON: SELFISHNESS VS SELFLESSNESS

Thursday, August 15, 2019:

At each Full Moon, the luminaries (Sun & Moon) are in opposing Zodiac signs. The polarity between them seeks balance and clarity. At this Aquarius Full Moon, we work to balance our individual needs with the humanitarian needs of the collective.

Between selfishness and selflessness, there is a spot to hold steady. Find that place today.

At the Full Moon, we feel a buzz of recognition and understanding as the interplay between these polarities is exposed.

Think back to February 4, 2019. That was the last time we had a New Moon in Aquarius. Go back to calendars or journals, consider what you may have started thinking about or doing at that time. Consider that today’s Aquarius Full Moon is the culmination of what began then. Are you able to make a connection? This is why it is a good idea to keep a journal. Be sure to always make entries at the New and Full Moons.

Full individual expression is necessary in order to have anything to give to the larger community. Keep your eyes on this balance point today.

ELATION – RESTLESSNESS

Friday, August 16, 2019:

Don’t expect your daily routines or communications to be ordinary or run-of-the-mill today. With Mercury (newly in dramatic Leo) square Uranus, your interactions with others may bring you to the brink of excitement or the edge of anxiety. You can expect to hear, learn, or experience something that is unsettling.

Don’t bother trying to hold steady with your normal routines. Unanticipated thoughts or ideas may come out of left field.

Put your most dynamic ambition into new and unusual plans and projects. Open your perspective to an elevated view.

It may not be easy, but today’s Pisces Moon does her best to keep you in a state of passive imagination and dreaminess.

Look for balance by bringing unusual ideas to your spiritual practice. Open your spiritual eyes to see beyond where you have stopped in the past. Meditation or prayer will support the changes that are bubbling within your mind.

 

 

TENDERNESS AND EMPATHY

Saturday, August 17, 2019:

Ah. Go ahead and stay in bed late. Later in the day, take a nap. There is no reason to push yourself into accomplishment or frenetic socializing. Today is a dreamy day with the Moon in Pisces. You may find that folks you normally enjoy spending time with leave you feeling worn out and simply tired. Take that as an indication that you need a day of solitary rest. When the Moon is in Pisces it is easy to absorb and feel all the emotions of the people you encounter. No wonder you feel tired.

If you pay attention and use the days of the Pisces Moon each month to catch up on your rest, it will make the entire rest of the month easier to manage.

Even if you normally feel strong and self-assured, while the Moon is in Pisces you may feel vulnerable and defenseless. Don’t let it worry you. Spend the day resting, reflecting, daydreaming, meditating, listening to music, or watching movies. Allow tenderness and empathy to move and open your heart.

PRODUCTIVE DISCIPLINED ACTION AHEAD

Sunday, August 18, 2019:

Mars, the planet of assertiveness and determination has been happy, fiery, and dramatic in Leo since the first of July. Today Mars leaves Leo behind to enter meticulous, analytical Virgo. Mars is not delighted with this move as Virgo’s humble attitude does not fit with Mars’ idea of himself as a warrior. However, we can always count on Mars to make the most of whatever sign he finds himself in.

While in Virgo, Mars can be passionate about doing the ‘right’ thing, connecting the dots, and being of service to others in a practical way. His actions will be efficient, productive, and disciplined. Look to what house contains Virgo in your chart to see what area of your life is activated with this workhorse energy. Mars will remain in Virgo until October 4th.

At 12:33 PM EDT the Moon leaves behind yesterday’s Piscean dreaminess to enter assertive, restless Aries. This afternoon is great for taking action on your own for yourself. When the Moon is in Aries you may be too self-focused to work well with others. You will do best to go on a solitary run, bike ride, or hike. Use your physical body and face all fears with courage and determination.

* 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 its void-of-course time, as that aspect holds its influence throughout the void-of-course.

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.

 

For all its complexity, however, astrology remains fundamentally simple. It offers a time-honored system of symbols that sum up key aspects of human life while providing profound insights and practical guidance.” ~Anne M. Nordhaus-Bike
