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.

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.

A HUMANITARIAN PERSPECTIVE

Monday, October 7, 2019

Early this morning, Mercury opposes Uranus. This aspect brings sharp excitement or intense anxiety to your thinking. Many of you had trouble sleeping last night due to the sheer amount of mental activity swirling through you.

As you attempt to share your thoughts, your words may come out all tangled, adding to the confusion. It is best to avoid any tasks that require mental stability or patience. You are distracted and possibly a bit jumpy. Move toward the thoughts that stretch you in a new direction. If it feels a bit uncomfortable or a bit enticing, that is the direction to follow.

When the Sun squares Saturn at 3:06 PM EDT, you may regret something you’ve said and question if you went too far in questioning the powers that be. Your ego may feel a bit bruised or embarrassed. There is a lesson in this situation that requires you to face the difficulty head-on. What are you learning from this situation? You may need to spend time alone to understand the effort required.

The Moon is in Aquarius today, allowing you to view the shifts of the day from an objective standpoint. Look at your situation from a humanitarian perspective to help gain clarity on what steps to take moving forward.

 

BEAUTY IN THE DEEP

Tuesday, October 8, 2019

Today’s individualistic Aquarius Moon forms a lovely trine aspect to the Libra Sun this morning. You can anticipate a desire to break out of restrictive thought patterns and behaviors. You will find it exciting to experiment with new ideas, beliefs, and visions for your future.

At 1:05 PM EDT Venus, the planet of Love and beauty leaves its home sign of Libra behind. It is time to stop making things look good to hold the peace. If something is hidden beneath the surface, dig into that area. Find the beauty that lives in those dark depths.

Venus will remain in Scorpio until December 9th. In Scorpio, Venus encourages you to look deep beneath the surface to find extremes of intensity in Love. This period is an emotional time that may bring an intense passion but less security. You will want your relationships to be deeper than ever, sharing secrets and building trust. If you find yourself suspicious and keeping secrets, it is time to do some serious soul searching.

The Aquarius Moon is void-of-course from 2:27 PM EDT until she enters Pisces early tomorrow afternoon. This condition suggests that what occurs during this time will not have a significant impact.

 

CALL IN THE SACRED

Wednesday, October 9, 2019

Wednesday begins with the Moon still in Aquarius, highlighting independence and humanitarian issues. Work with excitement and new ideas in the morning as this day has two clear chapters. When the Moon enters Pisces at 12:06 PM EDT, the mood of the day turns to one of sensitivity. You may feel more vulnerable and in need of softer music and quieter friends.

Interest in the sacred and intangible heightens. You may find yourself drawn to music, your meditation cushion, and bodies of water. Your imagination increases too. There seem to be fewer restrictions holding you to reality, enabling you to play in unseen ethereal realms. If you find yourself drawn to unhealthy escapism, in any of its many forms, choose to spend time on your meditation cushion or simply daydream instead.

BRING YOUR CREATIVE MUSE CLOSE

Thursday, October 10, 2019

Wouldn’t it be nice to stay home, watch movies, and daydream all day? It can be challenging to find motivation when the Moon is passing through the dreamy sign of Pisces. Your sensitivity is acute, and you are liable to feel great compassion for others.

Respect your sensitivity by fully engaging it today. Pay attention to how thin the boundaries are between yourself and others. See if you can pick up on the emotional state of your barista, cashier, or bank teller. When the Moon is in Pisces, the boundaries between us are thin. Don’t hold onto what you pick up. Send love and healing to the person in front of you and release any negativity. I recommend smudging with sage at the end of the day. Empathy and compassion are strong. Absorb Love and pass it to others.

The Pisces Moon (along with silence, music, and being near a body of water)will call your creative muse close to you.

 

OFFER LOVE TO THE VULNERABLE

Friday, October 11, 2019

Remember that the Moon sets the emotional tone for the day. With the Moon in Pisces you feel sensitive, impressionable, and easily hurt. Like yesterday you would prefer to dream or nap the day away. Please remember that others also feel this way today. You would like to avoid dealing with the harsher realities of your life today. You could go to a movie, spend time on your meditation cushion, get lost in music, or daydream. Pay attention to how you manage this loosening of boundaries and vulnerability. Don’t ‘check out’ in a way that is harmful to you. Don’t pour the extra glass of wine or zone out on the 8th episode of that mindless Netflix program.

Find a mystical thread and follow it to a place that will engage your imagination. Open your heart to compassion and an overriding sense of love for all those who suffer. Think of the oneness of all life. Send love and compassion to those who are vulnerable within your community, animals, children, the elderly, and infirm.

The Pisces Moon is void-of-course from 5:56 AM EDT until she enters Aries shortly after midnight. The Moon is void-of-course ALL DAY! This condition suggests that what occurs during this time will not have a significant impact.

 

 

EXCITEMENT IN LOVE

Saturday, October 12, 2019

The sensitivity of the past few days is a thing of the past. You are ready to push ahead with action, determination, and grit. While you slept, the Moon entered Aries bringing courage and fortitude. Watch out for the tendency to take action suddenly without giving thought to the consequences.

At 6:06 PM EDT Venus opposes Uranus. This aspect brings a great deal of excitement for a Friday night. After such a sensitive week, you may feel quite reckless.

This transit could signal a sudden shift in your relationship status, love life, or finances, bringing excitement or anxiety. Don’t move so fast that you forget to reason. Think before spending more than you can afford or before beginning a love affair.

If you do begin a romantic connection, it will be very exciting. However, I wouldn’t count on it being a long-lasting or permanent development. If you are in a committed partnership, now is the time to add some element of excitement or surprise. If you are single, bring this excitement to a close friendship or do something unexpected and a bit outside of your comfort zone. Sky-diving anyone?

GO AHEAD AND HOWL AT THE ARIES FULL MOON

Sunday, October 13, 2019

The Moon continues through Aries, keeping us active, forceful, adventurous, and bold. Pay attention to how you treat others today as this Moon can be quite self- centered. It would be easy under this Full Aries Moon to burn bridges that you regret later.

At 2:01 PM EDT, the Sun forms an exciting sextile aspect to expansive Jupiter. You can feel optimistic today, and simply joyful. Little resistance stands in your way when you step forward and claim what you desire. Opportunities are there for the taking. Where are you seeking expansion? Take a step in that direction today.

The Aries Full Moon is exact at 5:08 PM EDT. This Full Moon presents us with a powerful jolt of energy. It feels exciting and disruptive. You might notice folks around you behave more erratically than usual. Sleep could be hard to come by for a few days around the Full Moon. Go ahead and stay up late into the night. Enjoy howling at the Moon!

Astrology by Astrolore: Powerful Guidance for Daily Life (September 30, 2019 – October 6, 2019)

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.

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

 

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.

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.

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.

* 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.

THE SUN ENTERS LIBRA – AUTUMNAL EQUINOX

Monday, September 23, 2019

In the wee hours of the morning (3:50 AM EDT) while you slept the Sun entered Libra bringing us to the Autumnal Equinox. This is the moment when day and night are of equal length, offering an obvious clue about why the sign of Libra is about creating balance and equanimity.

Libra Season (in the Northern Hemisphere) moves us in the direction of cold nights and (in New England) the beauty of fall foliage. As the cold season descends we seek to secure the relationships that will sustain us and keep us warm over the coming months.

The Sun will remain in Libra until October 23rd. During Libra season (Mercury and Venus are already in Libra) you need to sooth conflicts. You are able to see both sides of situations that have previously flummoxed you. This is the time of year to build bridges, repair challenges, bring beauty and harmony into every corner of your life.

The Moon is in Cancer today, your level of sensitivity is high as you are wearing your heart on your sleeve. With a challenging aspect from the Moon to Pluto, if someone pushes your buttons or tries to get the upper hand, simply shrug it off. The challenge will pass if you don’t engage it with anger or passive-aggressive tactics.

This evening head home for a warm nurturing meal with close family or loved ones.

OPEN EXPRESSION & COMMUNICATION

Tuesday, September 24, 2019

The dramatic playful Leo Moon asks that you allow your inner mischievous child to rule the day. If you must go to a job find a way to bring spontaneity, fun, and playfulness into the workplace. This is a day to enjoy others and engage in harmless flirtations. Remember that when the Moon is in Leo everyone wants to be seen for the unique person they are. Show encouragement and appreciation for the unique creativity you see in others.

At 5 PM EDT Mercury forms a lovely sextile aspect to Jupiter encouraging you to think about, talk about, and make decisions about your future.

Openly express yourself today. Your communication skills are heightened and your understanding of your topic will expand as you go. This is an ideal evening to socialize, study, negotiate, make travel plans, make deals, and even sign business contracts.

TAKE ACTION ON REALITY

Wednesday, September 25, 2019

With the Moon still in Leo today you are likely to wear your heart on your sleeve and let others know exactly how you feel. Issues of romance and passion are likely to engage your imagination. You may also react with more sensitivity than usual if you feel slighted or ignored. We all crave more attention and adoration while the Moon is in this dramatic expressive sign.

At 3:19 PM EDT Venus, the planet of love and beauty, on her path through beauty-seeking Libra forms a challenging aspect to Saturn. This may bring stress to your most intimate relationships or your financial concerns.

If you find that you feel lonely or depressed remember that a square aspect demands that you take action on the issue at hand. Non-action will result in an increase in feeling poorly about yourself. Don’t sweep relationship or financial concerns under the carpet today. Face them head-on.

Give yourself or your partner a bit of space to breath today. An afternoon alone may be in order. Review places in your budget where the money is leaking out.

Pay attention to the reality of your situation and make a realistic plan to move forward. Facing your situation directly will help you feel accomplished at the end of the day.

EXPLORE DEEP THINKING

Thursday, September 26, 2019

With the Moon in Virgo (6:37 AM EDT) your attention turns to practical matters. You have little patience for arrogance or unnecessary dramatization. This is a great day to pay attention to the details that are at the heart of most projects and enterprises. Organize your desk at work or go home and tidy the garage. Overhaul your dietary and health routines. Don’t make the mistake of thinking it is a good idea to try to overhaul anyone else’s life or routines.

It is great to be of service to another, but make sure your input is desired. Otherwise, your efforts will be seen as critical and disempowering.

At 7:51 PM EDT Mercury forms a difficult square aspect to Pluto. Don’t be surprised when your thinking and communications take a turn into deep intense waters. You may find conversations can be coercive or extreme this evening. Don’t try to force your beliefs on others, and if you are on the receiving end of this, simply excuse yourself from the situation.

The best use of this transit is to research, write, or speak about a topic you are passionate about. Dig deep to understand your own mind and thinking. Don’t argue for the sake of argument. Explore the depth of your own mind.

ANALYSE YOUR OWN MENTAL TERRAIN

Friday, September 27, 2019

We are currently in the darkest phase of the Moon as tomorrow brings us to the Libra New Moon. You will do well to spend time alone exploring your inner mental terrain. This is a good day to engage in detailed tasks that require attention and concentration. Catch up on ongoing chores. Clean out your email inbox, de-clutter closets, and junk drawers, and finalizing the seasons gardening chores.

When the Moon is in Virgo your mind is active and analytical. Mental puzzles, word games, and reading are satisfying. These activities will help settle the tendency to criticize or find fault.

I love Virgo’s ability to see their own potential, the potential in others, and the potential in projects, circumstances, and situations. However, it is important to understand that reaching the highest potential is not always necessary or even the best we can do. Remember that ‘good-enough’ is often exactly the place to rest. Remember to find that place of rest today.

LIBRA NEW MOON – PLANT AN OBJECTIVE SEED OF LOVE

Saturday, September 28, 2019

At 6:03 AM EDT, the Moon enters Libra closing the distance between herself and the Sun. At 2:27 PM EDT, they join together in Libra (New Moon) where their reunion is one of pleasure, charm, and beauty. When the Moon is in Libra the mood is social and engaged. You will enjoy bouncing ideas off others in intimate, pleasurable environments. Surround yourself with beauty, engage with a partner or friend in light togetherness.

This evening as Venus sextile Jupiter enjoy your time with others. Share friendship, generosity, beauty, and pleasure. This is the perfect evening to go to dinner, a show, or a museum with a partner or a small gathering of close friends. It is easy to express charm under this influence.

~Libra New Moon Ritual ~

First write down the change you wish to begin, create, or increase in this Moon Cycle. The Libra New Moon suggests that you plant a seed of pleasure, charm, beauty, or an objective, intellectual understanding of Love.

Depending on your life circumstances, you may prefer to plant a seed to grow a romatic partnership, bring beauty into your life, or develop a more harmonious heart. You get the idea. Plant a seed in this realm that resonates with your heart.

Have two candles available. Light the first to represent yourself as you are now.

Light the second candle as inspiration for the change you desire in this cycle.

Take a moment to focus as you light each candle.

Imagine drawing the change you 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 while acknowledging what you have created. Please remember that the energy you infuse this cycle with will continue over the next 6 months until the Libra Full Moon in early April 2020.

SINCERELY SAY ‘THANK YOU’

Sunday, September 29, 2019

The Moon continues through Libra enabling you to use charisma and charm to create the day you desire and wrap up the weekend with a generally pleasant vibe. If you encounter situations of disharmony you will be delighted to step in and play a diplomatic role.

The focus today is on relationships. You can learn a lot about yourself as you pay attention to how you relate to others.

Spend time with loved ones, show appreciation as you create beauty and harmony in your environment. This is a good evening for socializing as everyone will be on their best behavior.

Practice gratitude.

Count how many times you can sincerely say ‘Thank you” today. At the end of the day, tell me how many times did you say ‘Thank you’, and how did it impact your day?
