Please keep in mind that your personal transits can override these more universal ones. A personal consultation will provide deep understanding.

 

 

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. 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.

 

 

Astrolore’s Weekly Astrology Weather: December 4, 2017 through December 10, 2017

 

“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…”

~ Dane Rudhyar, Astrological Aspects – a Process Oriented Approach

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. Our conversation will offer you a profoundly renewed perspective on your life and circumstances.

 

 

 

HOLD YOUR LOVED ONES CLOSE

Monday, December 4, 2017:

This week begins with the Moon in rational, talkative Gemini. With early morning positive aspects to excitable Uranus and impulsive Mars, you can anticipate an active day.

By early afternoon, the emotional Moon begins talking with both authoritative Saturn and logical Mercury, reminding you that it is your responsibility to deal with the hard wall that you have probably hit over the past few days.

Mercury just turned retrograde and joined with restrictive Saturn, just as Saturn is about to make a major move into rigid, serious Capricorn on December 20th. Our lives

Mädchen in Winterlandschaft by Albert Anker via Wiki Media

are about to get serious in a whole new way. Each of us will need to look clearly at our own issues of responsibility, maturity, and duty.  The heavy hand of reality is demanding its due over the coming months. The best thing for each of us is to take responsibility for our actions and approach each situation and circumstance in our lives with the very highest integrity even as we keep our hearts open to love.

At 3:36 PM EST, with the Moon entering Cancer, there can be a tendency to feel the need to protect oneself. Vulnerability can be scary. Don’t let it stop you from opening your heart and holding your loved ones and your family close.

The Gemini Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 2:12 PM EST until she enters Cancer at 3:36 PM EST. Remember, when the Moon is VOC*, there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; it is not good or bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have any significant future impact.

 

 

SWEETNESS GIVES WAY TO POWER DYNAMICS

Tuesday, December 5, 2017:

Tuesday brings powerful connections allowing deep emotional states of expanded awareness. In the morning hours, the sensitive Cancer Moon forms a lovely, flowing Grand Water Trine to dreamy Neptune (in Pisces) and expansive Jupiter (in Scorpio).  You may step into the day with big, dreamy emotions. Allow love and connection, nurturing and kindness to rule the day.

Either go to bed early or pay careful attention to the power dynamics within your family to avoid the struggles that may crop up as the moody Cancer Moon opposes subversive Pluto at 8:06 PM EST.

The sweetness of the early part of the day will be difficult to hold onto.

 

 

EXPLORE FUTURE SELF-DETERMINATION

Wednesday, December 6, 2017:

Untitled by Caspar Wolf via Wiki Media

Wednesday begins with your attention clearly directed to the challenging wall that seems to stand in the way between you and what you are seeking to accomplish. Do not try to tear that wall down or scrape your knees trying to climb over it. Take the Universe’s direction to slow down.

Remember, Mercury is retrograde until December 22nd and Saturn is about to enter serious, authoritative Capricorn. You must take full responsibility, speak directly with integrity, and accept the fact that this particular wall cannot be scaled at this time.

A “No” today is not a “No” forever. Something needs to be learned or improved before you can move forward. Settle into the acceptance of reality.

At 3:37 PM EST, the Moon enters expressive Leo, moving you to release the sensitivity of the past few days. Work on being expressive without overdramatizing the issues you are dealing with.

At 4:20 PM EST, impulsive Mars forms a supportive sextile aspect to level-headed Saturn. The cycle between Mars and Saturn began in August of 2016 and is a cycle of stabilizing your assertive or sexual energies. What began in this vein at that time? Now, you will want to begin exploring ways to release that cycle in order to start a new level of stabilizing energy and sexuality in April of 2018. Begin to explore ways you may want to reestablish self-determination, independence, and sexuality.

The Cancer Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 12:55 PM EST until she enters Leo at 3:37 PM EST. Remember, when the Moon is VOC*, there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; it is not good or bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have any significant future impact.

 

 

SEEK PLEASURE AND JOY

Thursday, December 7, 2017:

Thursday and Friday look like the best days in an overall challenging week. Obviously, we are still being impacted by Mercury’s retrograde motion impacting Mercury’s rocky relationship with Saturn. However, on Thursday and Friday, try to take any challenges with a grain of salt.

With the Moon in Leo, you can treat yourself to expressive creative pursuits and make fun and joy a priority. If there are children in your life, take a page from their playbook! Get in touch with playful pleasures.

Don’t hold back, express boldness as you seek simple joy. Engage in the love and romance, showing large bold gestures of passion and play. Take yourself to a show or better yet, go dancing. Enjoy the hell out of this day. You need it.

 

 

SUPPORT, ENCOURAGEMENT, AND KINDNESS

Friday, December 8, 2017:

Friday brings us to another day of focus on creativity, pleasure, and fun. The vital Leo Moon makes lovely aspects to eccentric Uranus, communicative Mercury, level-headed Saturn, and assertive Mars. This brings excitement, conversations, stabilization, and initiative to your generosity and creativity. Think about what you can do with that! 🙂

At 6:09 PM EST, the Moon leaves flashy Leo behind to enter meticulous Virgo, bringing your attention to issues of dedication, service and kindness toward others. Early in the day, it may seem a good idea to gather with friends for a night on the town. However, by the time Friday evening comes around, you are unlikely to be in the mood to do so.

This would be a better evening to cook a healthy meal for friends who needs support. You are able to offer a level of practical kindness, words of encouragement, and down to earth coaching. The exciting night-on-the-town will have to wait.

The Leo Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 5:41 PM EST until she enters Virgo at 6:09 PM EST. Remember, when the Moon is VOC*, there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; it is not good or bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have any significant future impact.

RELEASE ALL VESTIGES OF SHAME

Saturday, December 9, 2017:

Friday is a significant day as Mars leaves the cooperative sign of Libra (3:59 AM EST) behind to enter the intensely transformative sign of Scorpio. Mars, the planet of assertiveness, aggression, and directive sexuality, has been in Libra since October 22nd.

Keep your eye on how the #MeToo issue continues to unfold in personal lives and in the culture at large. The interest in compromise loses its roots as Mars goes directly for passion, desire, and its brand of truth.

With Jupiter also advancing through Scorpio, this story continues forward even as it morphs and changes. If you have a #MeToo story… take the time to tell it, if only to yourself. It does not need to be a public telling but give that story the light of day within your own heart. Shed any shame you have carried as it is so abundantly clear that you are in good company as nearly all women share such a story.

The Moon is in Virgo throughout the day allowing for a Saturday perfect for catching up on chores and home puttering. My favorite!

 

 

UNEXPECTED NEWS 

Sunday, December 10, 2017:

As the Moon moves through Virgo, she reaches her Last Quarter phase, imbuing us with restlessness and the need for change.

On a lighter note, Mercury, the planet of communication and thought, forms a flowing trine aspect to progressive Uranus. This may bring sudden epiphanies along with exciting and unexpected news. Pay attention to strokes of genius that seem ‘out of the blue’. Do keep in mind that Mercury is retrograde; set those new, innovative ideas aside to be put into action at the start of 2018.

At 8:47 AM EST, Venus, the planet of love and beauty, forms a challenging square aspect to imaginative Neptune, bringing a push toward inspiration for visionaries and artists.

Any difficulties that arise later in the day have their roots in the past rather than in current time. Don’t jump to conclusions or make judgments on the behaviors of those around you, you are likely missing a crucial piece of the puzzle.

You will be best served by sticking close to home working on the development of orderly and meticulous routines. A great day to make that gingerbread house. 🙂

A restless Last Quarter Virgo Moon can rob some folks of a good night’s sleep. Mixed messages from the heavens continue into the morning.

On a brighter note, Mercury’s trine to Uranus may be a stunning source of enlightenment, or a stroke of genius. Venus’ square to Neptune inspires artists, spiritualists, and other visionaries but it can also be a harbinger of heartache. After noon and long into the night, the Moon faces challenging alignments with retrograde Mercury and Saturn. Disturbing issues may reflect the past rather than the present. Fears and worries can be exaggerated. Contemplation is rewarded with fresh understanding of long-ago happenings. Be sure to think twice before making a judgment or reaching conclusions.

The Virgo Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 10:03 PM EST until midnight when she enters Libra. Remember, when the Moon is VOC*, there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; it is not good or bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have any significant future impact.

STRIVE FOR ACHIEVEMENT

Monday, May 15, 2017:

You may find yourself ready and even pleased to get to work on Monday morning. With the Moon in Capricorn, it is a good time to focus your attention on those things that you want to be known and respected for. Focus on your career, aspirations, and the projects in your life that are worth striving to achieve.

The energy of the Capricorn Moon is conscious, reserved, and practical. This is a time to look clearly at the realities of your experience and take the steps necessary to gain forward motion in your job and accomplishments. You will want to be useful and productive without drama or turbulent emotions.

This is a day to develop clear boundaries and realistic goals, not a time to take risks. Pay attention to the people in your life who have the wisdom of age and experience.  Work on organizational and practical projects and duties.

As the Moon moves through conservative Capricorn, she joins with Pluto at 4:24 PM EDT, asking that you take note of where you may be out of integrity regarding issues of power and control. Pay attention and release.

Happy Birthday to Pierre Curie, Dave Battick, Kathy Holmes, Annelies Smith, Sophie Grenier, and Liesje Smith!

 

 

SIMPLIFY AND SHAKE UP YOUR THINKING

Tuesday, May 16, 2017:

Shortly after midnight Monday night, Mercury left hotheaded Aries behind to enter reliable Taurus once again. Mercury initially entered Taurus on March 31st but proceeded to retrograde back into Aries where it has remained until now. Ideas and plans that have been on the back burner are now ready to be pushed forward. While on the backburner during Mercury’s retrograde, those ideas have been reviewed, reconsidered, revised, and analyzed.

Look for new inspiration and the patience necessary to take slow, deliberate steps to manifest your desires. While Mercury is in Taurus, your thinking is slower, deeper, and more methodical. Your approach to life, in general, is more relaxed; thoughts and plans can be seen from a perspective of simplicity and clarity.

At 1:50 PM EDT, we get a boost of enthusiasm as the Moon leaves serious hard-working Capricorn behind to enter unpredictable, progressive Aquarius. Allow the world to surprise you. Move outside of your everyday mindset. Make it a point to encounter people who will stretch your view of the world. Seek out enlightened forward-looking thinkers to shake up your mind.

Happy Birthday to Henry Fonda, Woody Herman, Janet Jackson, Liberace, and NYC!

The Capricorn Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 6:23 AM EDT until she enters Aquarius at 1:50 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 any significant future impact.

 

 

GATHER IN COMMUNITY

Wednesday, May 17, 2017:

The Spring Witch by George Wilson via Wiki Commons

Wednesday brings a simple day with very little astrological activity. The Moon continues through rebellious Aquarius forming easy-going social aspects to beautiful Venus and philosophical Jupiter.

While the Moon is in Aquarius, you are likely to be attracted to people, situations, and circumstances that are unusual and awe-inspiring. You may want to explore what it means to be a true individual without being held back by convention or society. Personal freedom, humanitarian interests, and progressive change take on powerful importance. You may want to break out of whatever box you feel contained in and explore new ideas, beliefs, and cultural viewpoints.

This is an excellent time to consider how your life fits into the wider world of humanity. What is the role that you play in your culture? What can you do in the world to create positive change? How can you join with others to make a difference? The Aquarius Moon spurs us to common human connections with less emphasis on emotional attachment. Find interesting gatherings of people who will expand your thinking.

Happy Birthday to Laurie Cartwright, Diane Doll, and Eric Satie!

 

 

THE BIG PICTURE

Thursday, May 18, 2017:

With all the dysfunction and craziness on display in the news and politics, it is important that we take advantage of joyful, flowing days like today! The Moon continues through unconventional Aquarius keeping our minds open to a bigger picture of life.

You may feel on a roll as all aspects the Moon makes during the day are aspects of positive flow and opportunities. People you encounter are apt to be more approachable than normal and generally in an upbeat frame of mind.

As the Aquarius Moon reaches the midpoint between Saturn and Uranus (forming a sextile aspect to each), we simultaneously enjoy a sense of excitement and stability, individuality, and determination.

At 8:33 PM EDT, we encounter the Last Quarter Moon in Aquarius, you may struggle to understand the cost of your actions and priorities. Keep moving forward as the exact trine aspect between Saturn and Uranus (Friday) will powerfully support forward motion.

As the day ends, the Moon slips quietly into compassionate, fanciful Pisces bringing a gentle sense of the surreal to the next few days.

The Aquarius Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 8:33 PM EDT until she enters Pisces at 11:52 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 any significant future impact.

Happy Birthday to Frank Capra, Bertrand Russell, and Robin Shelton!

 

 

READY FOR AN UPGRADE

Friday, May 19, 2017:

A powerful flowing trine aspect has been building between Saturn and Uranus all week reaching its pinnacle on Friday. This is one of the major astrological influences of 2017 and represents a powerful shift in life as we know it. This aspect formed its first exact ‘hit’ at the end of December of 2016 and will make a final exact ‘hit’ in November of 2017.

Look to your chart for 26° Sagittarius and 26° Aries for more information on where this occurs in your individual life.

This combination of planetary energies can support you in making powerful and even radical change in your life. Uranus brings innovation and inspiration to whatever you are creating, while Saturn offers determination and maturity. Together, you can make unimaginable forward motion or it may simply happen seemingly without effort! Something very significant is ready for an upgrade that will bring greater integrity and inspiration into your life!

On an interesting personal note… I am just now making this connection. Recently, I went to sleep one day and literally, woke up a vegan. Yes, that would be this aspect at work! Let me know how it manifests in your life!

Another significant transit occurs at 10:11 AM EDT with lovely Venus opposing enthusiastic Jupiter. This is a lovely and dynamic combination; be alert to love and other resources being offered. Be careful not to fall into a trap of overspending or over giving. Please try to enjoy this combination. Kindness and generosity can be offered and received.

With the Moon continuing through Pisces, allow yourself to drift in compassionate love and deep pleasure.

Happy Birthday to Leda Wolfe Hoppe!

SUN ENTERS GEMINI:  TALK ABOUT IT!

Saturday, May 20, 2017:

The Moon continues through Pisces on Saturday encouraging us to remain connected to our dreams and our imagination. While the Sun is still in Taurus (until 4:30 PM EDT), you may want to take a nap, meditate, or rest to prepare for the increased energy ahead.

At 4:30 PM EDT, the all-powerful Sun leaves the deliberate, consistent growth of Taurus behind to enter a period of enthusiastic movement. As the Sun changes signs month-to-month, we feel the atmosphere profoundly shifting. Over the past month, there has been the sense of steady, slow, determined movement.

Now, as the Sun comes into Gemini, everything shifts into quick, less stable expansion. While the Sun is in Gemini, you will want to join together with others, share and gather information, and come to understand the perspectives of those around you. You are curious, restless, and inquisitive. You will want to communicate more, explore new ideas, and consider more options.

Watch yourself for the tendency to talk more than you listen. Listening is a skill that we must pay attention to. Your own voice will only reflect what you already know. Learning requires paying attention to others through questions and listening. Show respect to those you encounter with your curiosity, your questions, and your focused ability to listen. You may be surprised at what you learn!

Talk. Communicate. Listen. Learn. Ask questions.

The Pisces Moon becomes VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) at 11:39 PM EDT. Unless you get up awfully early Saturday (the Moon enters Aries at 6:11 AM EDT on Sunday), this will not have an impact. 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 any significant future impact.                                                                                                

Happy Birthday to Candi Foss and Cher!

 

 

A MORNING ADVENTURE

Sunday, May 21, 2017:

Bright and early, the Moon enters dynamic, impatient Aries forming an energizing sextile aspect to the Sun which is newly in Gemini. The energy of this combination should not be wasted. Plan ahead to get up early and move quickly into a day of action and adventure.

Get yourself out into nature to watch how quickly the world is changing with new growth and expanding vegetation. A hike or a canoe trip down the river would be perfect for an early morning enterprise.

Later in the day, things quiet down and it will be good to have the afternoon to relax and spend time on your own. At this point in the cycle, the Moon is waning (New Moon on May 25th). Consider holding off on any rash plans, decisions or projects until the Moon begins increasing once again.

The Pisces Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) until she enters Aries at 6:11 AM EDT.  Unless you are up very early this will have no impact on your day. 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 any significant future impact.

Happy Birthday to Belladonna, Ellen Brown, and Michael Gilman!

SUN ENTERS SAGITTARIUS – EXPANDING WISDOM

Monday, November 21, 2016:

Monday begins with the Last Quarter Square of the lunar cycle – exact at 3:34 AM EST. With the Moon in expressive Leo and the Sun in secretive Scorpio, the week begins with an internal argument between your need for expression and your desire for privacy.

At 4:35 AM EST, the Moon enters critical Virgo bringing us into a day of analyzing and organizing in preparation for the week.

At 4:42 PM EST, the Sun having been in private Scorpio for the past month, happily enters freedom-seeking Sagittarius. You are ready to lighten up a bit, leave some intensity behind to explore new adventures and expanded perspectives. It feels like you can finally bring a larger perspective into view. You may be ready to explore new areas of personal growth and philosophical understanding.

At 10:08 PM EST, the Moon opposes elusive Neptune offering sweet slumber and dreams of future possibilities.

The Leo Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 3:34 AM EST until she enters for now at 4:35 AM EST. 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.

 

EXPAND YOUR THINKING

Tuesday, November 22, 2016:

Tuesday’s Virgo Moon is highly active throughout the morning. With a square to Mercury at 9:32 AM EST, the naturally critical Virgo Moon may have you questioning your ability to accomplish what needs to be done. From there, you may swing into an exaggerated sense of your own abilities with a trine to Pluto at 10:38 AM EST.

On the heels of that, the Moon squares Saturn at 12:42 PM EST, which brings you back to questioning your abilities. All of that back and forth activity may leave you feeling out of balance and uncertain of yourself.

However, if you can set your self criticism aside and simply pay attention to a higher vibration of energy, you will be able to engage with the Mercury sextile Jupiter aspect that is exact at 1:19 PM EST. Seek out a renewal of inspiration and intellectual excitement. Open your mind to new perspectives of thought. Look for conversations that will stretch your ways of thinking about and perceiving the world.

If you are alone, this is an afternoon for study. Read something that will open your mind to new possibilities. These conversations or expanded thinking will not come looking for you; it is important that you make the effort to seek it out.

Remember, a sextile guarantees nothing. A sextile offers an opportunity, a possibility. You must make the effort. If you miss the opportunity, you will be stuck in the moodiness of a highly self-critical day.

The Virgo Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 12:42 PM EST on Tuesday until she enters Libra on Wednesday at 2:41 PM EST. 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.

RELEASE RIGID THINKING

Wednesday, November 23, 2016:

Early Wednesday afternoon, with the meticulous Virgo Moon VOC*, Mercury, the planet of our thought processes connects with serious, authoritative Saturn. This significant transit may inhibit our conversations or somehow put a block on our ability to gain clarity in our thinking. Don’t be discouraged by this. Go inward and find your true authentic voice. Release rigidity of mind. This begins a cycle that asks you to stabilize your thoughts and get clear on what is most important in the manner in which you perceive your world.

Anything begun now has importance and long-term implications. Do not make decisions quickly or without significant for-thought.

At 2:41 PM EST, the Moon enters diplomatic Libra focusing us on compromise and diplomacy. You may want to focus your attention on stabilizing significant relationship dynamics.

At 6:56 PM EST, with the lovely Libra Moon sextile the exploratory Sagittarius Sun, it is time to look beyond where you have felt stuck. Go out into the world with an attitude of potential, possibility, and excitement.

The Virgo Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 12:42 PM EST on Tuesday until she enters Libra on Wednesday at 2:41 PM EST. 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.

 

SUPPORT EVOLVING CONSCIOUSNESS; HAPPY THANKSGIVING

Thursday, November 24, 2016:

Thursday’s lovely Libra Moon tries valiantly to maintain equilibrium and a steady calm on your life and circumstances. However, there are serious challenges and powerful forces working below the surface.

At 6:00 PM EST, expansive Jupiter forms the first of three waning square aspects to transformative Pluto. The energy of this transit has been building for some weeks, peaks now and again at the next two occurrences – March 30, 2017 & August 4, 2017. This difficult transit brings your attention to focus on a powerful long-term process involving the expansion of power and hidden forces. We clearly see where this is playing out in the outer world and in our political system.

Pay attention, also, to where and how it is impacting your personal life. If you have personal planets (Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter) or significant points (North Node, South Node, Midheaven, Ascendant) between 12 & 17 degrees of any Cardinal Sign (Aries, Cancer, Libra, Capricorn) this will be particularly pronounced in your life.

Be aware of your own tendency (or others) to use excessive force in order to gain power. You must consciously build on kindness and compassion for all humans. This is not a game. We MUST practice the development of evolved humanity beginning with ourselves. There are forces that are utilizing these energies destructively. It is your job to counter that negativity in your own life circumstances and to dig deeply to challenge beliefs that stand in the way of kindness and the growth of evolutionary consciousness.

Contact me for a consultation to discuss how this is impacting your life. I have heard from many of you who are struggling with sadness, fear, anxiety, and anger due to the changes in our political system. Working with your chart will offer perspective and some clarity on the path forward. Use the code ElectionStress for a full 20% discount.

 

FACE YOUR INNER WORK

Friday, November 25, 2016:

On Friday, Venus, the planet of personal values, money, and pleasure, joins the conversation that Pluto and Jupiter began on Thursday. Lovely Venus conjunct powerful Pluto at 6:49 AM EST and squares overextended Jupiter at 8:44 AM EST.

Watch how values and money are highlighted in issues of power and control. Consider your own use and understanding of money and other things of value. Do you harbor private beliefs, or are you behaving in ways, that do not support your highest good and integrity? Work on these issues today. Be aware of greed and underhanded dealings that are rotting our culture to the core. Make sure you are personally managing your own love and money with squeaky clean integrity. The reflection is all around you and your work must start with yourself. It always begins as an inside job.

The Libra Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 8:53 AM EST until she enters Scorpio at 3:02 AM EST on Saturday. 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.

INSIGHTS COME THROUGH ANXIETY OR EXCITEMENT

Saturday, November 26, 2016:

When we wake up on Saturday, the Moon is in introspective Scorpio.  Look deeply into your own psychological patterns to understand how to work with any fears that may arise throughout the day.  Be patient when dealing with the difficulties your friends and loved ones may be dealing with. Find inner strength and seek deep insights.

At 8:37 AM EST, perceptive Mercury trine unconventional Uranus bringing insights through anxiety or excitement. Mercury is the planet of mind and communication, Uranus is considered ‘The Awakener’. Allow your mind to open to unsettling original thoughts. Your conversations may surprise everyone.

When you head to bed Saturday night, you may have a very different set of ideas than when you awoke Saturday morning. Allow defiance and individuality while maintaining kindness and consideration of how differently we each experience the world.

 

REST – HIBERNATE

Sunday, November 27, 2016:

Rest on Sunday in deep quiet. If you are able to sleep late, you can avoid the one cranky transit of the day. At 6:25 AM EST, the Moon squares angry Mars, putting you on the defense. Allow that energy to work itself out in your dreams.

Later in the day, the Moon forms a sweet aspect to Venus and Pluto allowing you to rest at the end of a stressful week. Time alone is recommended. You likely feel the need to hibernate before the new lunar cycle begins on Monday with the Sagittarius New Moon.

The Scorpio Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 4:48 PM EST until she pictures Sagittarius at 3:46 PM EST on Monday.

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.

__________________________________________________________
* 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 VOC* time, as that aspect holds its influence throughout the VOC*.

* The aspects under consideration: conjunctions, textiles, squares, trines, and oppositions.
* The planets I work with: Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto.

RELEASE EMOTIONAL VOLATILITY

Monday, July 25, 2016:

The week begins with the aggressive Aries Moon trine Saturn offering determination and the ability to push yourself forward with conviction. As the day begins, we feel stable, rock solid, and sure of ourselves.

At 11:30 AM EDT, with the Moon square Pluto, anger may rear its head with potential battles and dark power dynamics coming to the table. If you find yourself justifying your anger, you are on the wrong path. Allow it to pass by.

This is just another Moon transit and will not hang around if you don’t feed it with your attention. Release emotional volatility.

By afternoon or early evening, the harsh energy has passed. The Sun trine both diplomatic Venus and conversational Mercury in Leo, your fiery, expressive emotions easily feed your thoughts and values.

Seek out places to express your beliefs and values with dramatic playfulness. On Monday, your communications may have a way of being reflected back to you in a manner that moves the dial forward supporting your deepest desires.

 

 

SEEK SOLID, PLAYFUL CREATIVITY

Tuesday, July 26, 2016:

Tuesday begins with the Moon still in assertive Aries and we are experiencing a good deal of anxiety as she conjunct Uranus in the early morning hours.

As the Moon enters steadfast Taurus at 11:38 AM EDT, we return to a calm emotional state. We are happy to settle in and engage with others with patience and an added dose of kindness.

The Last Quarter Moon is exact at 7:00 PM EDT. The Leo Sun and the Taurus Moon are energetically at cross-purposes. The Taurus Moon simply wants to stay home and enjoy comfort and stability while the Leo Sun wants to head into the world to shine and dance. If you can bring these two energies together into some form of solid and yet, playful creativity, you may enjoy a delightful evening.

The Moon is VOC* from 2:19 AM EDT until 11:38 AM EDT. Remember, there will be no result from anything that is begun during a VOC* Moon. This is neutral, not good, and not bad. It simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have an impact of any significance.

SUDDEN AWARENESS & EXCITEMENT IN LEARNING

Wednesday, July 27, 2016:

At 3:44 AM EDT, Mercury, the planet of our minds and thinking, forms a trine aspect to Uranus. Don’t worry, you may sleep through the exact moment of the aspect but you won’t miss out on this. If you were paying attention, it was fully in the air on Tuesday evening and it will be with us throughout the day.

When Mercury and Uranus come together, we want to keep our eyes open for sudden awareness, unusual communications, or profound unexpected light bulb moments. The cycle between Mercury and Uranus began at the end of March 2016. What began at that time that is now resulting in the sudden surprising awareness? Continue to open your mind to new ideas and ways of being in this world. Change can come suddenly.

When the Moon trine Pluto at 2:12 PM EDT, we can tap into great determination and the ability to power through any obstacles that hold us back.

There is a great deal of intensity within this day and we are relieved when it relaxes into easy pleasure as the stable Taurus Moon trines expansive Jupiter at 11:44 PM EDT.

 

 

ANTAGONISM TURNS TO CURIOSITY

Thursday, July 28, 2016:

Thursday begins with full-on cranky energy as the Taurus Moon squares Mercury (8:17 AM EDT) and opposes Mars (11:13 AM EDT). We may feel antagonistic or encounter others who approached us with resistance, discord, or hostility. If you do encounter that energy, don’t take it too seriously. It will pass and most likely has little, if anything, to do with you.

When the Moon enters Gemini at 2:17 PM EDT, your communications become easier. You may be curious about the difficult communications of the morning, and you are ready to have a friendly open conversation to clear the air.

The Moon is VOC* from 11:13 AM EDT until 2:17 PM EDT. Remember, there will be no result from anything that is begun during a VOC* Moon. This is neutral, not good, not bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have an impact of any significance.

 

 

SPARK CREATIVITY

Friday, July 29, 2016:

We begin Friday with a light, active, and curious mind that is somehow uncertain as to its intended place. On the one hand, we want to look at reality and take responsibility for our current place in the world. On the other hand, we want to drift on our imagination and dream of escape routes.

How to honor both of these perspectives? Give the world permission not to make sense; embrace dichotomy. Trying to analyze our perspectives, our lives, and our current path will not lead to understanding.

The reality of our circumstances is, at this time, is at cross-purposes to other more intangible realities that are equally relevant. Allow yourself to hold multiple perspectives.

At 4:48 PM EDT, Mercury square Mars. Are you ready to debate the issues at hand? How do you work with a mind that is hotly aggressive even as you are straddling multiple realities? Utilize the energy of the Gemini Moon to gather and work with the ideas and beliefs on both sides. Work to bring steadfast language to your frustrations and energy to our thoughts. None of us have the full range of understanding and the world is far more complex than we can possibly understand.

At 5:06 PM EDT, Uranus turns retrograde at 24 degrees Aries. If you have personal points or planets between 23 – 25degrees of any Cardinal Sign (Aries, Cancer, Libra, or Capricorn), you are likely in a state of extreme excitement or anxiety.

Look to the house that contains Uranus in your natal cart and the house that has Aquarius on the cusp to understand the areas of your life that are being intensified. Allow unusual innovations to spark your creativity.

LEAVE THE DRAMATIC THINKING BEHIND

Saturday, July 30, 2016:

As the Moon happily rattles through Gemini in the early part of the day, we can engage easily in social niceties and simple conversations. At 2:18 PM EDT, Mercury leaves the excitement of Leo behind to enter the analytical sign of Virgo. Mercury is delighted to be in Virgo, leaving the drama behind in exchange for more discerning and thoughtful intellectual pursuits. Whatever excitement has been on your mind over the past few weeks can now come forth in a more practical manner.

The Moon enters Cancer at 5:08 PM EDT. This is not the best night to go in search of social excitement. We are more inclined to seek emotional security and nurturance. Enjoy an evening at home, close to family and loved ones.

The Moon is VOC* from 7:46 AM EDT until 5:08 PM EDT. Remember, there will be no result from anything that is begun during a VOC* Moon. This is neutral, and simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have an impact of any significance.

 

 

FLOW TURNS TO STRUGGLE

Sunday, July 31, 2016:

With the gift of a flowing trine aspect between the sensitive Cancer Moon and dreamy Neptune, we are presented with a day of sweetness. Don’t put any high expectations on the day but allow yourself full enjoyment. Spend time at the beach, in a body of water, listen to music, read poetry, or meditate. The softer sides of your soul can be fed fully throughout the day.

At 8:03 PM EDT with the Cancer Moon forming an opposition to Pluto, deep troublesome family issues may upend all that ease. Our sensitivity explodes and we must guard against defensiveness and power struggles. Bring kindness and patience to the table. Perhaps time alone in deep contemplation would be our best use of the evening.

Head to sleep early as Monday morning will bring with it a new perspective and the potential of much innovation and excitement.
