Astrology by Astrolore: Powerful Guidance for Daily Life (September 16, 2019 – September 21, 2019)

Astrolore’s Weekly Astrology Weather: September 16, 2019, through September 21, 2019

 

Jennie Date, Laurie Cartwright and I continue working on the development of the teaching tool/ game we have been working on for the past few years. As we come closer to completion, this week’s blog images are dedicated to the importance of games in our lives.

We will be working with and sharing the current prototype of the ‘game’ at Astrolore’s Third Annual Retreat next month. There is still time and space available to join us! Explore the retreat schedule here. I have extended the Early Bird Prices for the retreat until September 30th.

 



VITALITY AND COURAGE

Monday, September 16, 2019:

Your physical energy was likely depleted over the weekend, courtesy of Mars opposite Neptune. This morning should bring you back to full vigor and fortitude. The Aries Moon begins the day with a supportive trine aspect to Jupiter, increasing vitality and courage.

Get to work early today as the project you are working on should flow smoothly during the morning hours.

However, at 12:03 PM EDT, the aggressive Aries Moon challenges powerful Pluto. You may hit a mighty snag. If you are working on your own, this will serve to empower and strengthen your resolve. If you are working collaboratively, it may be best to work apart this afternoon to avoid butting heads.

You will each enjoy your work and get more done if you work on your own

The Aries Moon is void-of-course from 12:03 PM EDT until she enters Taurus on Tuesday at 6:31 AM EDT. This condition suggests that what occurs during this time will not have a significant impact.

PLEASURE SEEKS EXCITEMENT

Tuesday, September 17, 2019:

When the Moon enters Taurus at 6:31 AM EDT,  any power struggles you encountered yesterday release their hold. Whatever the issue, it no longer feels worth struggling over. Today you want to slow down, to find a place of beauty and comfort for yourself and those around you. Today is the day to bring snacks (go for comfort foods) to share with your coworkers or flowers to brighten the mood.

Do your best to live in the moment with full awareness of your five senses. You want cozy pleasures of the body. Good food, aromas, touch, music, and visual beauty call for your attention. Make it a priority to enjoy all your senses.

As the evening approaches, there is a shift toward anxiety or excitement. The Taurus Moon conjuncts Uranus at 6:31 PM EDT. Your best bet in dealing with this is to seek excitement for your senses. Go for wild beauty, edgy music, unusual cuisines, and intensity in physical connections. Enjoy the ride.

MATURITY MOVES YOU FORWARD

Wednesday, September 18, 2019:

What a delight it is to see Saturn turn direct today. Look to the house that holds Capricorn in your chart to understand what part of your life is affected. Have you been spinning your wheels in this area? Saturn’s shift to direct motion will help turn the tide. Saturn went retrograde in late April, suggesting that your work here has been private and internal. This time has been an inside job of learning maturity and integrity.

What you have learned about responsibility over the past 4+ months will support forward motion and success.

Respond to this post (on FB) with your rising sign, and I’ll tell you what area of your life is being affected.

Because Saturn and Pluto are traveling together, it is important that you build stability here.

Today’s Taurus Moon makes lovely aspects throughout the day. You will want to create and inhabit cozy environments, surround yourself with plush luxury, and enjoy delicious meals. You will do your best to create a day of stable routines, beauty, and comfort for yourself and your loved ones.

INITIATE A POWERFUL CHANGE

Thursday, September 19, 2019:

A sweet trine between the Taurus Moon and Virgo Sun starts the day with a sense that all is right in your world. Your morning commute and routines should flow more smoothly than usual. What begins the day as a practical flow turns to a powerful push of direct and ambitious energy by afternoon.

At 11:53 AM EDT directive Mars trines powerful Pluto. You feel that you can accomplish whatever you put your attention on.

Whatever blocks success will move aside rather easily if you approach it with steadfast determination. There is great passion available. Use your power wisely. Go ahead and initiate the transformation of a project or goal. Your ideas will be welcomed and understood.

 The Moon enters Gemini at 4:59 PM EDT. Mercury is the ruling planet of Gemini, meaning that when the Moon is in Gemini, the Trickster is in the house. There is restlessness in the air, and you will notice that no one has a particularly long attention span. While the Moon is in Gemini, enjoy light friendly conversation, catch up on communications, and check off all the minor items on your to-do list.

__________________________________

The Taurus Moon is void-of-course from 9:57 AM EDT until she enters Gemini at 4:58 PM EDT. This condition suggests that what occurs during this time will not have a significant impact.

THE MIND IS A CHANGEABLE THING

Friday, September 20, 2019:

As much as possible, allow yourself to simply enjoy today. The Moon moving through Gemini makes only positive aspects, suggesting that it is best to keep the mood light and airy. Gemini is a Mutable Air sign, meaning it is an adaptable, changeable sign of the intellect. Don’t get stuck on your own opinions or expect others to be fixated on theirs. The mind is a changeable thing. Engage it with curiosity and allow it to shift direction midstream.

Any difficulties that arise, you can defuse with humor and storytelling.

To avoid frustration, don’t even try to focus on serious projects. Work around the edges, let yourself move from task to task, answer emails, make calls, network.

Catch up with your most light-hearted friends over dinner or cocktails this evening for a great way to start the weekend.

GET CLARITY BEFORE GIVING TRUST

Saturday, September 21, 2019:

The most significant transit of 2019, a square between Jupiter and Neptune, forms it’s final exact ‘hit’ today. Jupiter is at 17° Sagittarius and Neptune is at 17° Pisces. The houses of Sagittarius and Pisces in your chart show the struggle or challenge you have been dealing with or need to face finally.

This issue is highlighted today, even as it continues to be unclear. It is risky to place your trust in something or someone without having all the information you need. Something is not as secure as you had hoped it was. Have you been too trusting? You may need to face disappointment or embarrassment as you come to recognize what has not been clear.

The over-riding lesson is about the importance of clarity before blindly trusting.

The Last Quarter Moon comes at 10:40 PM EDT. This period is a time of crisis and/ or opportunity, probably both. You need to release something or make a decision for your most authentic future. Your actions over the next 24 hours will turn you toward or away from your highest expression. Look for clarity and choose your path with as much open awareness as possible.

__________________________________

The Gemini Moon is void-of-course from 10:40 PM EDT until she enters Cancer Sunday morning shortly after midnight (12:50 AM EDT). This condition suggests that what occurs during this time will not have a significant impact.

BRING INTEGRITY AND KINDNESS TO CONTEMPLATION

Sunday, September 22, 2019:

With the Moon now in Cancer, your experience today will include a high level of sensitivity. You may notice your reactions are heightened to subtle clues from others. Cancer is the sign of the Nurturer and the Protector. Today is a day you will want to focus on self-care and the care of those folks in your life you love most. Family and domestic matters take center stage, making today a good day to stay close to home.

At 12:18 PM EDT Mercury forms a Last Quarter Square aspect to Saturn. Expect that your attention will shift to meaningful mental activity this afternoon and evening. If you have a project that requires deep thinking or planning, go off on your own and work on it. Spend time writing, thinking, or engaged in serious conversation. Make sure you fully employ integrity and kindness in any conversations.

The full cycle between Mercury and Saturn (a cycle of mind development and maturing) began in Capricorn in mid-January 2019. Look to the house in your chart that holds Capricorn. This area of your life is where mental maturity has been in development. Consider what you need to do now to start wrapping up what began then. The Last Quarter Square is a pivot point where you begin the end of the phase you have been involved in since January. Write – Speak – Think – with Kindness – with Integrity – always with Love.

Astrology by Astrolore: Powerful Guidance for Daily Life (September 9, 2019 – September 15, 2019)

Astrolore’s Weekly Astrology Weather: September 9, 2019 through September 15, 2019

Day in Autumn

BY RAINER MARIA RILKE TRANSLATED BY MARY KINZIE

After the summer’s yield, Lord, it is time
to let your shadow lengthen on the sundials
and in the pastures let the rough winds fly.

As for the final fruits, coax them to roundness.
Direct on them two days of warmer light
to hale them golden toward their term, and harry
the last few drops of sweetness through the wine.

Whoever’s homeless now, will build no shelter;
who lives alone will live indefinitely so,
waking up to read a little, draft long letters,   
and, along the city’s avenues,
fitfully wander, when the wild leaves loosen.

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

DESIRE AND COMMITMENT

Monday, September 9, 2019:

The week begins with a substantial boost to your ability to get things done. Mars forming a trine aspect to Saturn offers perseverance, ambition, and great efficiency. You can anticipate more patience and self-discipline than usual. Passion and loyalty are strong and supportive of your desires and commitments.

For the bulk of the day, the Moon is in Capricorn adding emphasis to issues of determination, focused attention, and serious effort. What you put your focus and attention on should work out very well today.

At 5:24 PM EDT the Moon enters Aquarius, ushering in an evening of emotional objectivity, innovation, and unusual ideas. Your interests widen this evening as your awareness turns to a broad humanitarian perspective.

The Capricorn Moon is void-of-course from 4:31 AM EDT until she enters Aquarius at 5:24 PM EDT. This suggests that what occurs during this time will not have significant impact.

THE BEAT OF A DIFFERENT DRUMMER

Tuesday, September 10, 2019:

Think about retreating to a quiet place to work creatively today, or make an effort to increase compassion toward others. Today is not a day to make decisions or agreements or to sign anything. Things are not as they appear to be under the influence of the Sun opposing Neptune. If you feel insecure, discouraged, or wiped out, spend time on your meditation cushion or simply allow yourself time to dream. If you can avoid dealing with the harsh realities of life today, do so.

With the Moon in Aquarius, reach out to understand the more unusual people in your life. The Aquarius Moon suggests the need to march to the beat of a different drummer. Allow yourself to express the parts of yourself that are unique and engage with all the weirdos you admire.

EMBRACE CHANGE

Wednesday, September 11, 2019:

Have you noticed that the Moon is rising shortly after the Sun sets and her appearance is growing larger each night? This is a sure indication that the Full Moon is approaching. Each month at the Full Moon (Friday night/Saturday morning,) emotions are heightened as we each reach for clarity in a specific area of life. Over the next few days, pay attention to the houses that hold Pisces and Virgo in your natal chart. Seek clarity in the house that holds Pisces, as this is a Pisces Full Moon.

The Moon is in innovative, unconventional Aquarius, encouraging you to seek a new direction. Find people who will support you in the change you want to see in your life or in the world. If you ordinarily spend time with people who look, behave, and live in a certain manner, today is a day to consciously break out of that mold.

To understand and develop compassion for others, you must get to know them. Sometimes this is challenging due to judgments and assumptions. Today you are more able to be objective about those differences. Seek out people of a different race, sexuality, gender identification, age group, nationality, or even political affiliation. Listen to understand another point of view. Remember that no matter how different, we are all human and have valid reasons for our proclivities.

Allow the rebellious and spontaneous parts of your personality to shine through. Break out of routines or ruts that hold you back. Embrace change.

The Aquarius Moon is void-of-course from 1:23 AM EDT until she enters Pisces on Thursday morning. This suggests that what occurs during this time will not have significant impact.

PUSH FOR EXPANSION

Thursday, September 12, 2019:

Putting determination and drive into a project that you anticipate will bring big future rewards is the best way to use the square aspect between Mars and Jupiter today. Mars pushes you forward while Jupiter drives for expansion. This combination of energies is ideal for courage and accomplishment. However, do consider what it is you are pushing for before jumping headlong into an ill-advised plan. Put your shoulder to a project that has already shown signs of fruition.

With the Moon in Pisces (entering at 5:52 AM EDT), the project you choose to put your grit and boldness into should have a connection to imagination, music, or spiritual advancement. Pisces is a Mutable Water sign and brings with it the ability to adapt and touch deep emotions.

The Aquarius Moon is void-of-course until she enters Pisces at 5:52 AM EDT. This suggests that what occurs during this time will not have significant impact.

EXPRESS POWERFUL LOVE AND DEVOTION

Friday, September 13, 2019:

The Moon continues through passive, dreamy, and adaptable Pisces throughout the day and continues into Saturday evening.

At 11:10 AM EDT Mercury, representing thought processes and communications joins with Venus,  which represents that which is valued. Venus generally refers to love, money, beauty, and resources. When these two come together, it is time to think, speak, or write about the things that you value. This meeting is the beginning of a new cycle of expressing and understanding your values.

Tell someone you love them. Think about and write about love or finances. Write a love letter or work on your budget. Create a thing of great beauty that expresses a powerful idea. Consider what you value deeply.

At 3:42 PM EDT, the Sun trine Pluto brings intensity and powerful circumstances to the fore. Whatever you put your focused attention to should go very well, indeed. Look to the house that holds Capricorn in your chart for an idea of where the power is coming from. Look to the house that holds Virgo for an idea of where the power is released into your life or into the world.

All of this could easily point to a romantic evening. If this is applicable in your life, pull out all the stops, light the candles, and express powerful love and devotion. If you do not have a current love interest, do these same things for yourself. Show and express powerful self-love and self-care.

If you stay awake past midnight, you will encounter the Pisces Full Moon, exact at 12:33 AM EDT.

A COMPLEX DAY

Saturday, September 14, 2019:

The highly intuitive Pisces Full Moon was exact shortly after midnight last night.

North American indigenous tribes call the September Full Moon the Harvest Moon. The Sun and Moon are opposite each other in the signs of Virgo and Pisces. Virgo holds the energy of discernment and practicality, allowing for the open imagination and mystical awareness of Pisces. Full Moons bring high energy and heighten emotions for all of us. Compassion and kindness will go a long way in supporting you throughout the weekend.

Mars opposed Neptune in the wee hours of the morning as well. This transit is a difficult one as Neptune weakens your physical energies and your ability to push forward for action or success. Use your energy for creative or spiritual endeavors or simply conserve your energy by slowing down and resting.

Another important consideration today is that both Mercury and Venus lead the way into Libra, leaving Virgo behind. The Sun will follow on September 23rd. As we move into Libra Season, there is more emphasis on friendliness and diplomacy. We are more inclined to charm those around us, and we are willing to compromise and negotiate for our needs and desires. We are also more interested in creating beauty not only in our environment but in our relationships as well.

Early this morning the Moon enters assertive, action-oriented Aries. The transiting Moon suggests the emotional atmosphere we are embroiled in. You are likely to be more aware of your personal needs and desires this evening. Nevertheless, still under the influence of Mars oppose Neptune, conserve your energy. If frustration kicks in, go for a run, lift weights, or do some jumping jacks! Tomorrow will be a simpler day.

The Pisces Moon is void-of-course from 12:33 AM EDT until she enters Aries at 6:33 PM EDT. This suggests that what occurs during this time will not have significant impact.

RISK AND COURAGE

Sunday, September 15, 2019:

Take a deep breath and go for a run this morning. The complex shifts and challenges from yesterday should settle down. Take stock of your circumstances as we head into the upcoming Libra Season. With Mercury and Venus already in Libra, you may well be thinking about whose hand you will be holding as the cool Fall days begin. Who will be by your side when Winter comes? This line of thinking will increase over the coming weeks.

The Moon is in assertive, action-oriented Aries today, bringing attention to your personal needs and desires. You are more inclined to take risks with acts of courage and daring and may be tempted to do things you usually shy away from. Consider what you are trying to prove to yourself. When the Moon is in Aries, it is time to take on a challenge, be competitive, and push forward toward passionate action. At bedtime, the Moon makes a hard square aspect to Saturn. The best course of action is to go to sleep early and avoid an argument.


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

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

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

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

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

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

Join us for an unforgettable experience in beautiful Northern Vermont during magnificent autumn foliage. Devote a weekend to self-discovery and astrological understanding. Gain practical skills. Connect with other amazing folks as we build a powerful and supportive astrological community. Information Here!

This is an interesting week as we head toward the Virgo New Moon early on Friday morning. The few days before each New Moon should be thought of as The Dark of The Moon, a time to rest and go inward. This is also a week of excitement and unexpected changes. Venus, Mars, the Sun, and Mercury all form flowing Trine aspects to Uranus, the planet of sudden shifts in direction, epiphanies, and innovation. We may find that we want more freedom and are willing to take more risks than usual. With Venus trine Saturn on Sunday, things should work out just fine.

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

Monday, August 26, 2019

A RISK FOR LOVE OR BEAUTY

The week begins with the Moon in protective Cancer keeping your emotional focus on family, sensitivity, and moodiness. Yet the trine formed from Venus to Uranus at 11:38 AM EDT urges you to seek exciting changes regarding something that you value.

You long for more stimulation and excitement in your romantic relationships and friendships. Venus represents the things that we most value. Generally speaking, we value love, resources (money & possesions), and beauty. You may long for wild change in relationship, or you may want to buy a new updated and unique wardrobe or create a wildly unusual piece of art.

The status quo is not going to satisfy you today. A new love interest could develop quickly under this influence. Keep in mind that a relationship starting now may not be stable and could end as quickly as it begins. Don’t let that stop you from having a ton of fun while it lasts!

Tuesday, August 27, 2019

WEARING YOUR HEART ON YOUR SLEEVE

The Cancer Moon remains until evening when she enters Leo at 7:54 PM EDT. For the bulk of the day you can expect to remain focused on emotional needs of safety, security, and belonging. Because the Moon ‘rules’ Cancer, don’t be surprised that everyone’s tender emotions are very close to the surface. This is a day to keep family connections, self care, and kindness as your top priorities. Happiness will come with close familial connections and domestic activities. Nurture yourself and your loved ones.

When the Moon enters Leo this evening a more playful nature comes forth that will hold sway for the next few days. It is time to shake off deep emotion in exchange for fun and creativity. A romantic connection before bedtime is the perfect way to make this shift.

A RUSH OF ADRENALINE

The day begins with a lovely flowing trine aspect from assertive Mars to wildly unique Uranus. It is time to let your freak flag fly! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dUFPWW7IqCU

Look around and you will see that you are not alone. There is a strong desire to break free of restrictions and boring routines. You are ready to let your hair down and take a risk or two. Don’t do the same old things today/ this week. Go someplace new, speak to folks you’ve never spoken to before, find new experiences to explore. Your mind is open to ideas and ways of understanding that may surprise you.

With the Moon in Leo, this may be a dramatic and boisterous day. Don’t go straight home after work. Hire a babysitter if necessary, go out dancing. The Leo Moon encourages dramatic self-expression and playful creativity. You will want to be seen and appreciated for your most unique qualities.

Go ahead and take a creative risk, allow others to see a part of you that you normally keep under wraps.

FLASHES OF INSIGHT

In the early morning hours, Mercury, the planet of thought and communication joins with the Sun, Mars, and Venus already in Virgo. This puts Virgo Season in highest gear.

While in Virgo, Mercury brings precision and meticulous care to thoughts and speech. You are more analytical in your thinking and more judgy toward how others express themselves. Approach others with a good dose of compassion and kindness to keep a cap on your judgemental tendencies

For most of the day, the Moon continues through Leo. Use the careful thinking of Mercury in Virgo to support the expression of creativity. Find a creative way to use your words. Write a children’s story for your child or grandchild.

The Moon joins the crowd of planets already gathered in Virgo at 7:57 PM EDT.

At 11:14 PM EDT the Virgo Sun forms a trine aspect to excitable Uranus. Even with so many planets in practical Virgo, it is unlikely that you will be chugging along accomplishing tidy, meticulous chores. Watch for quirky dreams tonight and possibly excitement and epiphanies tomorrow. You may have trouble sleeping under this influence. If so, get up and do some writing. Get the flashes of insight and self-discovery down on paper. Again, look to the houses that hold Virgo and Taurus in your chart for clues.

BALANCE YOUR QUIRKS WITH PRACTICALITY – VIRGO NEW MOON

With the excitement of the Sun trine Uranus still with us from last night, we reach the Virgo New Moon at 6:38 AM EDT. Each New Moon follows several days of the Dark of the Moon, a time of inward silent development. At the New Moon, we plant a seed for future growth. Do your New Moon ritual late in the day or even tomorrow. You may feel pulled in several directions today. On the one hand, the Virgo Moon wants you to focus on practicality and efficient service to others. On the other, the Sun trine Uranus encourages you to take risks and express something unusual or unique.

Find a way to balance these desires. Explore unusual ideas in a practical way. And don’t forget your New Moon Ritual!

~Virgo New Moon Ritual ~ Take a moment to write down the changes you wish to begin, create, or increase in this Moon Cycle. The Virgo New Moon suggests that you plant a seed of meticulous anyalysis and practicality. Have two candles available. Light the first to represent yourself, as you are right now. Light the second candle as inspiration for what you the change you want to create. Take a moment to focus as you light each candle, imagine drawing the change toward you as you physically bring the two candles closer together. Do this each day for two weeks. At the Gemini Full Moon (September 14) bring the candles fully together and acknowledge what you have created.

Saturday, August 31, 2019

A HOLIDAY OF WORK AND EFFORT – LABOR DAY

It makes sense that the holiday we celebrate during Virgo Season is a celebration of effort and work. If you are attending gatherings or parties, you can find many practical details to make the event successful. Plenty of effort goes into the preparations and the after-party clean-up. The tasks involved, and being of service to others, may bring more satisfaction than the party itself.

The Virgo Moon helps you chug along doing practical chores and getting things done efficiently. Keep your expectations reasonable and curb the tendency to be critical of yourself and others.

At 7:08 PM EDT the Moon enters diplomatic beauty-oriented Libra. Now the socializing will comes more easily. The Libra Moon supports romantic or diplomatic endeavors, socializing, or creating art. As you interact with others, remember that everyone will be more cooperative this evening. Face any challenging issues with dispassionate objectivity. Libra asks that you put cooperation ahead of other considerations. Face internal and external work with grace and decorum.

WILD THOUGHTS BALANCE STABLE LOVE

Today is an exciting day with two lovely trine aspects bringing a flow to mental intensification even as love and values are stabilized. The Moon is in Libra suggesting an undercurrent of pleasure and ease in social situations.

The Morning brings Mercury trine Uranus which excites your thinking. This will open your mind to new possibilities as it brings unusual, intense, and interesting conversations to the table. You may receive communications that startle and electrify your system. With an open mind you can make new friends that will challenge, illuminate, and change your thinking.

This afternoon brngs another trine, this one from Venus to Saturn. Consider long-term financial and relationship plans. You will need to balance the wild ideas in your mind with a practical conservative approach to love and money. Let your thinking be wild even as you are steady, loyal, and stable with love and money.

A note from Laurie:

I normally spend my Saturdays writing the blog. I putter and write, putter and write. I enjoy this process of writing, puttering and look and thinking of the week ahead.

This Saturday nothing went as planned. I started the day with a wonderful consultation with a delightful woman. I rarely meet with clients on weekends.

No sooner had I finished the consultation than I received word that my beloved aunt’s health was spirally quickly downhill. I think of this aunt as a mother. I love her from a very deep familial place. I quickly packed a bag and headed out for a four hour drive over the mountains to be with her.

Now I am at her home and will do my best to make an abbreviated post for each day of next week. Thank you for your patience. Please send prayers and love for the passing of my sweet auntie. I am honored to be at her side as she prepares for her passage.

FACE STRESS WITH BOLD ACTION

Monday, August 19, 2019:

The week begins on an assertive note with the Moon in confident decisive Aries. Your thoughts will be focused on your own personal needs, hopes, desires, and wishes.

Don’t be surprised if you find yourself facing stress today. Aries wants to teach us to develop courage, fortitude, and boldness. No one in the history of the world has developed courage without facing stress.

Therefore, welcome the stress that you encounter today. The courage you build will serve you well when you need it for the serious burdens and hardships that inevitably come with this life.

When the Moon is in Aries, you are ready to take on a challenge, be competitive, take a risk, prove something to yourself.

 

 

SET A PLAN IN MOTION

Tuesday, August 20, 2019:

The first few hours of the morning may prove to be fraught with power struggles that bring up anger and frustration. I know that sounds rough, but it will pass quickly (Moon square Pluto at 6:54 AM EDT). If you simply keep calm and quiet it doesn’t have to be an issue at all, let the stress roll off your back.

This evening the Moon, still in Aries, forms a lovely trine aspect to the Sun sweeping away any issues left from this morning. The Aries Moon pushes you to go after your goals, knowing that you have what it takes to push through whatever obstacles get in your way. If you have been procrastinating over something, now is the time to set it in motion.

 

 

TAKE A WALK IN NATURE

Wednesday, August 21, 2019:

In the wee hours of the morning, the Moon enters stable Taurus allowing you to release the activity and stress of the past few days. It is time to settle into a focus on comfort, loyalty, and connection.

At 5:06 AM EDT, Venus, the planet that represents love and beauty, follows Mars into Virgo. Full Virgo Season will settle in on Friday morning when the Sun joins them in Virgo. Can’t you feel the Summer coming to a close? Are you ready? With both Venus and the Moon in Earth signs, we step into the ability to experience life fully through your senses. Slow down, be quiet, be still, there is no need to push yourself. Indulge your senses with excellent food, aromas, beauty, music, and physical touch. Approach circumstances with a perspective of slow sensual awareness. Go for a long leisurely walk in nature. Breath deeply.

Mercury trine Jupiter today allowing your thoughts and opinions to expand with ease. Think and speak of growth and expansion and your opinions will land easily in the hearts and minds of others.

SEEK COMFORT

Thursday, August 22, 2019:

Today is the last day with the Sun in Leo. Playtime is about to shift into a time of effort, study, and work. We are ready to settle down.

With the Moon in Taurus, this is a day to move slowly and engage with your 5 senses – taste, sight, touch, smell, and sound. Make sure each sense is fully fed.

Get outdoors in nature, smell the flowers, weed your garden, and walk barefoot on the earth. Listen to the trees sing and pay attention to the messages the earth is constantly offering. Enjoy cuddling with your partner, a hearty meal, and a walk in nature.

The desire and need for loyalty, security, peace, and comfort are what motivates you when the Moon is in Taurus. Look for sensuality and constancy. Resist change, slow down and relax. Seek comfort and an escape from the chaos of life.

SUN ENTERS VIRGO

Friday, August 23, 2019:

At 6:01 AM EDT the Sun leaves playful Leo behind to enter analytical Virgo. This seems the most impressive and powerful shift from one sign to another. We have been busy enjoying summer, parties, cookouts, and festivals. Now it is time to go back to school, pick up a serious study or a project that has been bubbling in your mind.

At 10:34 AM EDT the Moon enters Gemini encouraging communication, curiosity, and gathering information. Both Virgo and Gemini are ‘ruled’ by Mercury, the planet of our mentality, making this a day of rational thought and conversation.

When the Moon is in Gemini we tend to be talkative, lighthearted, and friendly. There are so many stories to hear and stories to share.

Your mind is probably moving quickly, as you seek mental stimulation and lots of activity. If you notice restlessness find intellectually stimulating folks to engage with.

At 10:57 AM EDT we come to the Last Quarter Moon, a challenging square aspect between the Sun and Moon. The First and Last Quarter Moons are times of great possibilities or crisis. This is a time to make a choice that will move you in one direction or another. Choose well.

CHARISMA AND PASSION

Saturday, August 24, 2019:

The weekend begins as Venus joins with Mars in cautious exacting Virgo. When Venus and Mars come together your desire for intimacy and love increase. You find that you can be direct and purposeful in your search for a partner or lover. Mars represents desire and drive while Venus represents attraction and allure. Venus softens Mars even as Mars toughens up Venus. Together they increase your charisma and issues of love and passion draw you in. This is a great time for finding new friendships, new lovers, or new partners.

As the Moon continues its path through Gemini you find yourself increasingly curious and seeking to understand all that is brought to your attention. The Gemini Moon wants you to engage socially and bring versatility and diversity to your way of life.

Make a list of incidental chores that need to be done, phone calls and emails that you need to respond to. This is a great day to run around town meeting with folks and getting things done.

Conversations move quickly and with usual wit. Don’t forget to listen as well as speak. With others speaking more freely than usual you may be surprised at what you learn.

 

 

THE DAY FOR FRIENDS – THE EVENING FOR FAMILY

Sunday, August 25, 2019:

The Moon continues its path through Gemini encouraging communication, curiosity, and the gathering of information. This is a great day to listen to the stories of others and tell your own. The energy of the Gemini Moon is friendly, lighthearted, and talkative. A Sunday brunch with your most chatty friends would be a great way to start the day.

At 5:06 PM EDT things change just the way you would like them to on a Sunday evening as the Moon enters Cancer. Now it will be time to head home and settle in for an evening of comfort food, family, and intimate loved ones.

You may spend the evening feeling more nostalgic and domestic than usual. Your emotions are heightened and you may want to share memories of the past. Allow yourself to indulge in chocolate cake or whatever comfort food soothes your soul.
