Here it is! The Full post… Just for YOU!

RELEASE IN PREPARATION

Monday, August 14, 2017:
The Taurus Moon really wants to be calm, stable, and settled today. However, at 10:30 AM EDT, she forms a difficult, challenging aspect to aggressive Mars.
You may encounter anger or deep frustration, remember to not engage that energy and it will pass quickly being only a Moon transit.
Over the next few hours, calm should be restored as the steady Taurus Moon proceeds to make positive aspects to both beautiful Venus and Pluto allowing love and empowerment to flow into your life.

At 9:16 PM EDT, the Taurus Moon forms a difficult square aspect to the brightly shining Leo Sun as we reach the Third Quarter Square between our two Luminaries. You are encouraged to release and let go of what no longer serves your life. This release is important as you prepare for the major new Lunar Cycle coming at the Full Solar Eclipse on August 21st.

 

UNDERSTAND YOURSELF

Tuesday, August 15, 2017:

In November of 2016, Venus joined with Pluto. She is asking that your relationship dynamics enter into a serious conversation. Today, at 7:17 AM EDT, Venus, the planet of love and beauty opposes Pluto, the planet of deeply significant change and transformation. The conversation that began last Fall now becomes illuminated and you are able to enter a state of understanding.

This aspect could bring about a further conversation about love, money, or other precious resources. Look for clarity as you move forward with your personal values. As you reach toward clarity, do not be surprised to find feelings of vulnerability, fear, and defensiveness. Breathe through the challenge and look clearly at what is laid out before you.

At 10:07 AM EDT, as the Moon enters inquiring Gemini your conversations can begin with genuine curiosity. Much can be learned today that will assist you in more fully developing your understanding related to your beliefs and values.

 

CURIOUS CONVERSATIONS

Wednesday, August 16, 2017:

As the chatty Gemini Moon squares nebulous Neptune at 8:35 AM EDT, it may seem difficult to get the day started or to feel like you’re doing anything more than spinning your wheels.

By mid-afternoon, things loosen up and conversations become interesting and provocative. At 3:30 PM EDT, the active Gemini Moon sextiles assertive Mars and trines lovely Jupiter at 6:35 PM EDT. Engage in conversations with folks you may otherwise avoid. You may learn something new that surprises or even changes your way of thinking.

Enjoy the afternoon, it is the best part of Wednesday.

At 9:40 PM EDT, the Moon opposes heavy hearted Saturn. This may have you head to bed with a difficult reality pressing heavily on your mind. Remember, this is only a Moon transit and will pass before morning.

 

TEMPTATION TO OVERINDULGE

Thursday, August 17, 2017:

At 2:39 AM EDT, beautiful Venus forms a challenging square aspect to optimistic Jupiter. This leads you to confront your understanding of your personal values and the importance of beauty and love in your life.

This transit asks that you question your approach to Tuesday’s opposition between Venus and Pluto. Whatever clarity you reached regarding your values is pushed to greater understanding and acceptance. You will find value in looking into the dark spaces within yourself that you would rather not encounter; do so anyway. You will learn something valuable.

You may be tempted to overextend, overindulge, or overspend on Thursday. This aspect will impact the entire day; it may be a good idea to leave your credit cards at home as freely spending is a common response to this transit, especially if it is highlighted in your personal chart. The over optimism of this transit may balance some of the challenges we are all working through while offering hope for the future.

At 12:13 PM EDT, the Moon enters home loving Cancer. This will settle your mind and open your heart. Spend the evening close to loved ones.

 

TENSION BUILDS; SHOW LOVE

Friday, August 18, 2017:

Do you feel the tension building? We are in the Dark Phase of the Moon as we rapidly approach the great Solar Eclipse which will come to perfection on Monday afternoon at 2:26 PM EDT.

There is much being said about this eclipse and this time it is not unwarranted hype. We are in very intense, transformative times. This is a pivot point and is exposed clearly in the collective dramas of our times. On a personal level, pay extra attention if you have planets or sensitive points near 29° Leo (or the other fixed signs: Taurus, Scorpio, and Aquarius).

Friday begins with an easy, even gentle edge as the Moon moves through sensitive, loving Cancer. The morning may bring a touch of dreaminess with the involvement of Neptune.

At 4:45 PM EDT, the Cancer Moon opposes Pluto and several hours later, she squares Jupiter. You may want to spend time alone to head off potential family power dynamics. In relating with loved ones and family, be aware of the heightened sensitivity and do your best to show loving compassion, patience, and kindness.

SEXY DATE NIGHT

Saturday, August 19, 2017:

Don’t be surprised when the early morning energies feel a bit disruptive or bring surprising changes that come unexpectedly. The sensitive Cancer Moon forms a challenging square aspect to unruly Uranus at 11:17 AM EDT.

This may be just the push you need to jump start the day! At 1:55 PM EDT, the Moon enters playful, dramatic, and boisterous Leo. This is a perfect night for a party or other social fun engagements. Shortly after midnight, Mars forms a delightful sextile aspect to expand fun-loving Jupiter suggesting a great night for a fun, playful, sexy date.

 

PREPARE FOR CHANGE

Sunday, August 20, 2017:

In the very early hours of Sunday morning, Mars forms an encouraging sextile aspect to expansive Jupiter helping us to regard the future with hope, positive aspirations, and high regard for the future even as we feel the shifting sands upon us.

Sunday brings with it high-energy, excitement, determination, and the desire to take action. We are building strongly to Monday’s Solar Eclipse. Prepare for a profound shift in whatever area 29° Leo falls in your chart… and, of course, the profound movement within the culture is obvious to all of us!

Perhaps, it is time to contact me for a consultation.

In the meantime, enjoy the Sun in playful, warm Leo. At 11:55 PM EDT, use your physical energy constructively and with kindness. Make love before you sleep; you will be glad you did.

Astrolore’s Weekly Astrology Weather: August 14, 2017

It is hard to imagine that I didn’t get the post prepared this week. I apologize and promise to be back on board next week.

I guess I was having such a good time, I got totally distracted! Perhaps, my vacation got away from me! I believe this is the first time I have missed a post in 10 years!!

Monday’s is here and I will have the dailies on Facebook… perhaps, I will send them out here each day as well. 🙂

We use astrology most constructively and creatively when we gain from it a sense of what is possible for us at the highest levels of our potentialities. Seeing that, the challenges is then to keep our eyes open to life itself, to be able to respond appropriately when some event or change of circumstances…

Are you up against a difficult decision, or are you questioning your current life, love, or career direction?

An astrological consultation with an open-hearted, competent astrologer will clearly show you the larger picture at play, the universal directional path.

I am taking new clients again and would love to meet with you.

Astrolore’s Weekly Astrology Weather from August 29, 2016 through September 4, 2016

As we leave August behind and move into September, we do so with Mercury turning retrograde on Tuesday and a Virgo New Moon and Solar Eclipse on Thursday. Welcome to the changing seasons!

First things first, have you become comfortable with Mercury retrograde yet? I have harped on this issue for a very long time, but still many people find it difficult to accept and work with Mercury retrograde.

All you really need to do is follow these five simple steps each time Mercury turns retrograde.  You will be amazed that, in time, you will find yourself looking forward to Mercury retrograde.

1) Don’t be afraid, worried, or concerned; Mercury Retrograde is NOT a problem.

Of course, that is easier said than done with so many folks spreading negativity about Mercury retrograde! As you work with these cycles, you will come to love these brief periods scattered throughout the year. They are a gift; learn to use them well. Spread the word!

2) Make sure your computer is backed up, your car is caught up on all necessary repairs, and that your friends and family know you love them.

With those things taken care of in advance, there is so much less to worry about.  Things like to break down during Mercury retrograde but if you are proactive there will be nothing insurmountable.

3) Get a notebook and a pen – make a list of everything you have begun but not completed since May 22, 2016.

Start with a clean sheet of paper, quiet your mind, and think back over these past few months. Look through your calendar, your notebooks, your bills; wherever you will find reminders of what you have been thinking about and working on since Mercury went direct on May 22nd.

Now, carefully make a list of all the things that you have begun but not completed during this time. Dig deep; there are probably more things than you are aware of.

Consider the books that you began to read but didn’t finish, the appointment you meant to reschedule but just haven’t gotten to, the project you finally tucked into a drawer because you couldn’t find the time to complete it.  If you are anything like me, you also have plenty of communications that have fallen through the cracks. Get those on your list as well.

4) Now get to work! Focus your attention on the items on this list.

Once you have the list made, it is easy to follow the perfect plan for the next three weeks. Our lives are so busy; we fly from one project to another, from one communication to another, never having time to slow down and complete all that we have begun.
Now, you have the opportunity to focus on this list. You will be amazed at how much you can accomplish. Used properly, Mercury retrograde offers the gift of wrapping up loose ends.

5) Don’t be tempted to start new projects, begin new commitments, new relationships, or new jobs.

Set this time aside for cleanup only. Nothing more, nothing less. Don’t move forward until Mercury turns direct on September 22.

Focusing in this manner will take most of the stress out of Mercury retrograde. Yes, you will still notice folks showing up at meetings late and full of anxiety. Let it roll off your back.

Pay more careful attention to how you communicate and make sure to double check that important communications are understood. Put the stress of it aside. Allow yourself to simply get a lot accomplished so you can start with a clean slate when Mercury moves forward on September 22nd.

 

Are you concerned or unclear about your path ahead?
Let Astrolore help you see your life and your path forward from a perspective that will change everything. Allow more joy and love into your life.

Make your appointment today!  

Together, we will work with your individual horoscope to explore your hopes, dreams, goals, your current path, and the reality of your life purpose. Our conversation will offer you a profoundly renewed perspective on your life and circumstances.

 

 

EXPRESS BEAUTY; SHOW LOVE

Monday, August 29, 2016:

At 2:32 AM EDT, Mercury will conjoin Venus planting a seed to focus our attention on deep values and love. Write a love-letter, expressing your understanding of beauty in words. Try your hand at poetry. You may surprise yourself.

By the time we start the day, the nurturing Moon will have entered playful Leo (4:12 AM EDT). Love is able to flow through dramatic generosity.   Expression is the name of the game on Monday.

At 10:06 PM EDT, Venus, the planet of partnership, beauty, and diplomacy leaves meticulous Virgo behind to enter romantic, social Libra. Venus has a natural affinity for Libra and is able to express beauty, charm, and refinement easily. Venus has a brief stay in Libra, only staying until September 23rd when she will head into the intensity of Scorpio territory.  While she is here, use her gifts wisely. Understand your profound value, show appreciation for the beauty and value of others and this amazing planet we live on, and this life we are experiencing.

The Cancer Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 2:23 AM EDT until she enters Leo at 4:12 AM EDT. Remember, when the Moon is VOC* there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; not good, not bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have significant future impact. Most of us will sleep through this and never have to worry about it! 😉

 

MERCURY RETROGRADE – ARE YOU READY?

Tuesday, August 30, 2016:

The Moon continues through playful Leo all day on Tuesday encouraging us not to get too jacked up about the Mercury retrograde that begins at 9:04 AM EDT.  For the next three weeks, our communication skills and the way we perceive others and the world are somewhat altered.  People love to spread stories of stress and anxiety about these times. Please do not listen to those stories.

Focus your attention on getting caught up on all the projects that have not been completed over the past few months. Yes, it is a good idea to double-check your schedule and your communications. It is not a good idea to head into this upcoming three weeks anticipating problems.  You will surely find what you look for.

Personally, I find this to be the best time to get projects done. When Mercury turns direct on September 22nd, the slate will be clean and it will be exciting to start a whole new chapter!

 

A DAY OF RELEASE; LET IT GO

Verso Un Estate by Alberto Bertoldi via Wiki Commons

Wednesday, August 31, 2016:

You may have difficulty sleeping on Tuesday night with the Moon forming a trine to Uranus at 12:20 AM EDT Wednesday morning. With the Moon in Leo and Uranus in Aries, this is a hot and dynamic combination, bringing originality and possibly anxiety.

AT 11:23 AM EDT, your heart calms down as the Moon enters productive, meticulous Virgo. The rest of the day is relatively quiet as we prepare for Thursday’s New Moon Eclipse.

This is the ending of a cycle. Go inward and consider what is ready to move on from your life. What no longer supports your path forward? What is holding you back? You may feel restless; however, try to allow that contemplation to rest easily within the quiet of your heart and mind. On Thursday, you will begin a fresh step forward. The process of release begins internally now.

The Leo Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 12:20 AM EDT until she enters Virgo at 11:23 AM EDT. Remember, when the Moon is VOC* there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; not good, not bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have a significant future impact.

 

VIRGO NEW MOON – SOLAR ECLIPSE; ENDINGS & NEW BEGINNINGS

Thursday, September 1, 2016:

We certainly are starting September on a powerful note! With the Virgo New Moon and a Solar Eclipse exact at 5:04 AM EDT, this marks a time for endings and new beginnings. Because this New Moon and Solar Eclipse triggers the square between Saturn and Neptune, this is especially powerful. A Solar Eclipse momentarily blocks the flow of the Sun providing a sort of rebooting of our consciousness.  What are you ready to let go of in order to move in a new (and possibly unexpected) direction?

If you are still asking yourself: “What do I want?” now it is time to put that question aside and ask: “What does life want from me?” How can you, in your small or large way, make a difference to the greater good? This Virgo New Moon and Solar Eclipse offers us each the opportunity to step forth onto a new path of greater significance, a path of service.

The day will present challenges; don’t allow them to overwhelm you. A day as powerful as this does not come without challenge.

At 11:21 PM EDT, the Sun square Saturn speaks firmly to the need to look at the reality of what needs to change in your circumstances, your ideals, or your desires. Where are you holding on too tightly? This will strongly impact a few days following this exact ‘hit’ and works hand in hand with Friday’s Saturn opposition Neptune, illuminating the discord between Saturn and Neptune.

Where do you want to resist seeing the truth? What area of your life did you work hard on in late November of 2015? Is it clear that the rules of that game (whatever ‘game’ started in late November) need to change over the coming months? Quiet time in contemplation is necessary over the next few days. Go inward, plant the seeds of effort and offer kindness to those in need.

Don’t neglect a simple New Moon ritual on today or tomorrow. You will want to complete the ritual after the exact time of the New Moon and within 24 hours.  The dramatic Leo New Moon is ideal for planting seeds of generosity, love, and playfulness or for telling the Universe you are awaiting a child or a lover.

Take a moment to write down what you wish to create for the upcoming cycle.  Have two candles available; light the first candle to represent yourself, just as you are at this moment in time. Light the second candle as an aspiration of what you want to create.

Each day, take a moment to focus on yourself as you light the first candle.  As you light the second candle, focus on drawing to you what you desire, as you bring the two candles closer together.  At the Full Moon in two weeks, bring them fully together and see the results of what you have created.

Embrace the dark and allow growth.

 

RELAX INTO AMBIGUITY

Friday, September 2, 2016:

On Friday, the Sun opposes Neptune at 12:37PM EDT, highlighting the ongoing square between Saturn and Neptune (Thursday, the Sun squared Saturn) the most challenging and long-term transit of 2016. We may fear loss of control, we may desire to escape our responsibilities, we may dream of transcending boundaries of all kinds, and we are likely confused about which direction to move in or which path to take.

It is best to relax in ambiguity, do not make important decisions now.

At 1:17 PM EDT, Mercury conjoins Jupiter increasing our desire to understand the direction we are moving in. Please remember, Mercury is retrograde. You very likely do not have all the information you need to make an important decision.

The Virgo Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 6:13 PM EDT until she enters Libra at 8:56 PM EDT. Remember, when the Moon is VOC* there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; not good, not bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have significant future impact.

A SIMPLE DAY

Saturday, September 3, 2016:

The highly agreeable Libra Moon does her best to bring us back to calm cooperation and peacefulness with a conjunction to Venus at 7:30 AM EDT. Get the day started early. Make breakfast for your lover or a friend.

Save any wild party plans for another weekend. Saturday is good for low-key restful socializing. Spend the day with a good friend or partner making art or visiting a museum.

At 4:56 PM EDT, the Libra Moon forms a sextile to Saturn encouraging us to further release any anxiety left over from Friday. It is important to maintain attention and awareness of your responsibilities even as your heart is fully open to beauty, and to respond with maturity and clear reality. Allow yourself to enjoy a simple day.

 

MAKING PEACE WITH INDECISION

Sunday, September 4, 2016:

Sunday brings with it the potential for power struggles and anxiety (Moon square Pluto at 2:40 AM EDT – Moon oppose Uranus at 8:30 PM EDT) Sunday’s issues are simple Moon transits and won’t last long.

Your job is two fold. If possible, find some time alone, go inward and make peace with your own indecision. Make peace as well with your tendency to be overly dependent on others. An increased awareness of your own dependencies and struggles with decision-making will begin to change the path of your relationships.

Do not engage in power struggles.  Any aggression between two people requires input from both. If you don’t take the bait, the battle will not ensue. Do not engage in negative interactions, take the high road and the whole issue will pass before sleep finds you.

Astrolore’s Weekly Astrology Weather: March 7, 2016 through March 13, 2016

We begin the week in the darkest phase of the Moon, preparing for a Pisces New Moon on Tuesday and the full solar eclipse, also on Tuesday!

Job – Out of the depths I cry to you by Andreas Neumann-Nochten via Wiki Commons

When the Moon enters Pisces on Monday, she joins both the Sun and Neptune. As we approach the solar eclipse on Tuesday, we may be aware of the need to release something precious in order to achieve something deeply significant in our lives. It is true that in many instances we can have everything we desire, and yet, there are times when choices must be made. It is important to pay attention to the sometimes subtle difference between fantasy and reality. Often times, they can be exactly the opposite of what one would expect.

There is much to say about any solar eclipse. On Tuesday, I will send out an article written by my student Noelle Letteri about eclipses. Stay tuned for that communication.

Are you concerned or unclear about your path ahead? Let Astrolore help you see your life and your path forward from a perspective that will change everything. Allow more joy and love into your life.

Make your appointment today!

Together, we will work with your individual horoscope to explore your hopes, dreams, goals, your current path, and the reality of your life purpose.  Our conversation will offer you a profoundly renewed perspective on your life and circumstances.

 

SEEKING CLARITY

Monday, March 7, 2016:

The week begins in the darkest phase of the Moon. In the astronomical world, this is called the Waning Crescent Moon. Astrologically, it is referred to as the Balsamic Moon. Yes, balsamic, like the vinegar.  🙂

Until the Moon enters Pisces, her movement through Aquarius is cheered by a conjunction with Venus at 3:46 AM EST. As you start the day, take a moment to place your awareness on an understanding of the connection between the Moon and Venus. I think of these two as the representation of the two sides of the Divine Feminine. The Moon represents the mother archetype, the deep, warm, and nurturing aspect of the feminine. Venus, on the other hand, represents the sensual, passionate, and playful expression of the feminine. As they join together, we are asked to open our hearts to deep love and connection that draws on both of these powerful aspects.

At 2:08 PM EST, the Moon joins the Sun and Neptune in Pisces. As we move toward the eclipse and New Moon on Tuesday, things may not be as they appear. Neptune and the sign of Pisces can essentially shroud us in fog.

If passive aggressive behavior or anger of any kind arises, be prepared to meet that energy with kindness and compassion. If you are able to do this, the issue at hand will simply dissolve.

Keep in mind that this is an internal issue, there is no victim; face yourself clearly & show compassion.

 

PISCES NEW MOON & FULL SOLAR ECLIPSE

WELCOME CHANGE

Tuesday, March 8, 2016:

With so much happening on Tuesday, it is hard to know where to begin. At 5:56 AM EST, the Sun opposes Jupiter, asking us to look back to late August 2015. Whatever began in your life at that time, it is now releasing its full creative potential. Consider and give yourself credit for how far you have come.

Tuesday also marks a significant moment in time as we reach the full solar eclipse and the Pisces New Moon occurring at 19° Pisces (8:55 PM EST). A full solar eclipse happens as the Moon comes between our Earth and Sun.

Astrologically, eclipses are considered to bring unexpected changes that push us into much-needed action. Wherever you find 19° Pisces in your chart, it will indicate where you can expect the breaking up of old patterns and major shifting dynamics.

The New Moon is always a time of beginnings; do not underestimate the significance of what you chose to begin at this time. Focus on the area of your life that you know requires the energy of change. To some of you it may seem a bit silly but start to create a New Moon ritual. It can be very simple. Write down on paper what you wish to begin now. What do you want to see increase over the coming months? Have two candles available for your ritual. Light the first candle to represent yourself, just as you are today. Light the second candle as an aspiration of what you want to create. Each day take a moment to focus on yourself as you light the first candle. As you light the second candle, bring the two closer together. At the Full Moon in two weeks, bring them fully together and see the results of what you have created.

Today’s New Moon brings many powerful energies together to support your forward aspirations. The Moon makes contact with Neptune as we bring our awareness to the dream that moves us forward. She then connects with Saturn reminding us that there is hard work involved. Then she connects with Pluto showing us the access we have to deep empowerment. Finally, she makes contact with Jupiter opening our vision to full expansion.

 

HOW TO DEAL WITH CONFLICT

Wednesday, March 9, 2016:

Composition 02 by MedBerkane via Wiki Commons

Composition 02 by MedBerkane via Wiki Commons

You should feel some relief on Wednesday morning as the intense energy of Tuesday begins to subside. At 2:40 PM EST, when the Moon enters fiery, assertive Aries, your relief turns into powerful renewed energy for action and accomplishment.

At 4:51 PM EST, with the Aries Moon trine Mars (in Sagittarius); you are ready to take on the world. Please carefully observe and pay close attention to your reactions, as impulsiveness and impatience may result.

If folks you encounter are exhibiting more aggression then you are comfortable with, please show compassion and understanding. This energy is necessary in order to move forward. Obviously, there is a limit to what is okay and what is not. Use your own internal compass to know when to remove yourself from a situation where you or others are a bit too heated up.

A powerful, sexual connection could be a delightful use of this passionate energy. After all, you do know how bonobos (our closest relations) deal with conflict!

 

ACCEPT WHAT IS YOURS

Thursday, March 10, 2016:

Thursday begins with a continuation of the powerful, assertive energy from Wednesday. Late afternoon offers more steadfastness and calm to that energy as Saturn plays nicely with the Moon at 4:36PM EST.

However, Thursday evening could bring you into emotional situations you may not be prepared to handle. The Aries Moon squares Pluto at 6:02 PM EST and conjunct Uranus at 8:43 PM EST.

Allow plans to change without question, allow others to disappoint you.

Find a way to look inside and accept your feelings. It is important to understand that others may disappoint us without it being a personal issue. Everything is not always about US!

This may well be a very challenging evening but with the Sun conjunct Chiron at 11:26 PM EST, we are given the opportunity to bring warm and healing light to a wound at the depth of our soul. Bask in that warmth and allow deep healing. Sleep soundly.

 

REST IN QUIET CALM

Friday, March 11, 2016:

Friday begins with our minds fully immersed in creative imagination. Mercury joins with Neptune, beginning its annual cycle of uplifting our minds to a high state of bliss or is it a state of confusion? Intellectual ruminations may call you down Alice’s rabbit hole. I suggest you simply enjoy the ride.

At 2:44 PM EST, the Moon enters Taurus giving us an opportunity to move into a weekend of relaxation and calm. Don’t plan too many wild adventures over the next few days. Your body and mind really need rest.

Time slows down and you can relax into enjoyments of the senses. Get and give a massage, bake bread, plan your upcoming garden, rejuvenate yourself through silence.

This is a night for calm, quiet, deep love and touch, not the passion of Wednesday night. This connection can produce steady warmth and healing for your soul.

DEEP RESERVOIRS OF GREAT LOVE

Saturday, March 12, 2016:

As Venus leaves Aquarius behind at 5:23AM EST, she joins Neptune, Mercury, Chiron, and the Sun, all in Pisces. This is a powerful line-up of planets in the gentle, sensitive sign of Pisces. Your compassion, imagination, and awareness of suffering are expanded at this time. You may long to merge, and even ‘save’ others in a heightened spiritual manner.

With the Moon still in Taurus, this is a wonderful time for the growth of love and affection in any and all relationships. A lovely Earth Grand Trine forms Saturday evening between the Taurus Moon, Pluto, and Jupiter.

Your physical senses and your awareness of the real practical realities of your life are aligned, sensitive, positive, and deeply empowered. Anticipate tapping into deep reservoirs of great love. Breathe in love and build stores of it deep within your soul.

 

SEEK SOCIAL CONNECTION

Sunday, March 13, 2016:

Sunday begins slowly; you will not be tempted to make any changes to the course of the weekend (as long as you have kept to the program of calm and quiet) until the Moon enters Gemini at 4:04 PM EST.

With the Moon now in chatty, restless Gemini, you have probably fulfilled your need for calm and silence. Now, you will seek social interactions for the late afternoon and evening.

As much as you may need social connections, you may anticipate some stress in relationships. The Moon square Venus and opposing Mars suggests unrest and possible tension. If you spent the majority of the weekend engaged in calm quiet activities, this tension should be relatively easy to manage. Don’t engage with the struggle and it will pass quickly.
