CRACKS FORM ON THE SURFACE OF UNDERSTANDING

Monday, January 14, 2019

The week begins at the First Quarter Moon Phase, with the Moon in assertive Aries. Think back to what began last week at the New Moon Eclipse (January 5). In this consideration, you may find that you are face to face with an issue that needs to be worked through before moving forward to the development of what you desire. This is a day to take action, to make something happen. Do not waste time looking for the perfect action; any action that is taken with integrity and from a place of kindness will move you in the right direction.

When the Moon enters Taurus at 1:32 PM EST you may find yourself slowing down and looking for a quieter more peaceful space. Slow down, seek comfort, good food, and loyal friends.

Jupiter square Neptune is pushing to release you from beliefs that no longer serve you. Where are you beginning to see cracks in your prior understanding of your belief system? You will be working with this issue a great deal throughout the year as your deep understandings begin to shift, dissolve and change. Allow your most powerfully held belief system to dissipate, allowing for a renewed growth of deep awareness.

SHARE PLEASURE

Tuesday, January 15, 2019:

The Sun continues moving doggedly through serious Capricorn glad to be on the other side of its recent rough conversations with Saturn and Pluto. The Moon in sensual stable Taurus brings pleasure and sensuality to the day encouraging us to deepen our sensuality and feelings of loyalty and physical connection.

This is a day to slow down, spend time with yourself and close loved ones.

Over the coming months the need to connect with Nature will increase dramatically, I know it is winter and may be very cold, but get push yourself into Nature now. Listen to the trees, the stillness of the air and your breath.

Do whatever you can to waken your senses. Cook and enjoy good food, deeply listen to music, get a massage, spend time in Nature, or make love. Find pleasure in the simple things of life. Feel the deep pleasure of hot water as you shower, bath, or wash the dishes. Show others the depth of your loyalty. Understand pleasure as something to share with others. Share with others.

 

 

BUILDING INTEGRITY

Wednesday, January 16, 2019:

The day continues with the gentle stable Taurus Moon encouraging you to seek out sensual pleasure and beauty. However there are serious challenges in the motion of the planets as Mars, in aggressive Aries prepares for difficult conversations with restrictive Saturn and destructive Pluto over the coming weeks. With four planets (Saturn, Mercury, Pluto, and the Sun) in Capricorn, the sign of reality, integrity, authority, business, and government, we are preparing for a showdown indeed.

Where in your personal life can you expect these challenges? Hint: you are already dealing with these issues. Look to the house that holds Capricorn (use the whole sign house system) and the house that holds Aries. What is the challenge between these two areas of your life? Where is your integrity being questioned? Where do you need to face reality? Over the coming weeks, you will be asked to be honest with yourself about something that is not easy for you to admit. Face the issue head-on and determine to build integrity and maturity. Face reality, get serious and do it with kindness toward yourself and others.

At 8:01 PM EST the Moon leaves earthy Taurus behind to enter inquisitive enthusiastic Gemini. It may take extra effort to fall asleep as your mind races into all kinds of arenas. Expect the next few days to include more activity, conversations, and restlessness.

___________________________________________

The Taurus Moon is void-of-course from 1:33 PM EST until she enters Gemini at 8:01 PM EST. This condition merely suggests that whatever is begun or occurs during this time will not have a significant future impact.

 

THE ACTIVITY OF A BUSY MIND

Thursday, January 17, 2019:

With the Moon now in Gemini, your mind is likely to be moving very quickly, you want and seek mental stimulation and lots of activity. If you notice restlessness setting in finding intellectually stimulating folks to engage with will help

Gemini Moon insists that we engage socially as we need others to bring versatility and diversity to our lives and our thinking. Make a list of incidental chores that need to be done and the phone calls and emails you need to respond to. This is a great time 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 is being said and what you may learn.

 

 

SURPRISE AND DELIGHT

Friday, January 18, 2019:

With Venus and Mars each in Fire signs in a lovely aspect with each other, you may feel positive and balanced in your most intimate relationships. Normally this would lead to a great weekend of romance and pleasure. However, I suspect you will need to dig a little deeper. At 3:03 PM EST Mercury joins with Pluto suggesting that there are deep, possibly hidden issues that need to be brought to the surface. It is important that you ask the hard questions you have been avoiding. Listen deeply to the answers you receive and be honest in your response. The significant conversations you bring to the table now will set the stage for profound understanding in the coming year.

At 8:30 PM EST the Sun forms a challenging square aspect to Uranus. Has something unexpected, innovative, or unusual been steadily growing since April? If you can identify what shifted and began at that time you should be able to know what you need to do now to move that issue forward. There may be a surprise or an unexpected development before the weekend is done.

Make it your mission to surprise and delight a stranger, a loved one, or a friend. Ask for nothing in return.

At 10:44 PM EST the Moon enters Cancer sending you into the rest of the weekend feeling affectionate or needy depending on the conversations and surprises that have defined the day.

GIVE THE BEST YOU’VE GOT

Saturday, January 19, 2019:

The Cancer Moon in her Gibbous Phase pulls us toward fulfillment and deep awareness. The Full Moon draws close as darkness becomes increasingly illuminated. Do you feel yourself at a tipping point?

The Cancer Moon is highly sensitive and you may find yourself consumed with a desire for comfort, safety, love, and home. If possible stay in a warm nest with family and loved ones focused on domestic tasks providing comfort during the day. By evening you may want to retreat to your own private corner as the Moon makes rough aspects to Mars (7:27 PM EST) and Saturn (8:49 PM EST). Don’t engage with negativity, arguments, or struggles, allow challenges to slide off your back. Model loving-kindness and open-hearted vulnerability. Give the best you’ve got to those you love and those you are responsible to.

 

 

EMBRACE INNOVATION: SUN ENTERS AQUARIUS

LUNAR ECLIPSE IS AT HAND

Sunday, January 20, 2019:

The Sun is happy to escape the seriousness of Capricorn (3:59 PM EST) to enter the intellectually exciting and innovative sign of Aquarius. With the Sun in Aquarius, we are motivated by the desire for freedom, individuality and wild intellect. We are not content with the status quo.

Wherever the Sun moves it brings warmth and light. What house holds Aquarius in your chart? If you want to watch and understand the moving patterns of the planets in your own life, join me on Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/astrolore

At 10:54 PM EST the Moon approaching the Full Moon Lunar Eclipse enters the exuberant, expressive sign of Leo.

Depending on the time zone you live in, the Full Moon Lunar Eclipse occurs late Sunday or early Monday morning (12:12 AM EST).

The thing to remember is that a Lunar Eclipse is simply an overly strong Full Moon. Your focus will be on emotions, close relationships, home, and family. A Full Moon illuminates your ability to fully observe how you are in your most significant relationships. As the light of the Moon is blotted out you are able to reset your emotions. Areas of your heart that have felt stuck can now be shifted and realigned. You are more in touch with your deepest needs making it clear where there are disruptions in the harmony of your partnerships. Whatever becomes clear to you over the next day or two will very likely have a profound impact on your life over the coming 6 months.

ASTROLOGY WEEKLY: January 7, 2019 through January 13, 2019

Astrolore’s Weekly Astrology Weather

 

SAY YES TO LOVE

Monday, January 7, 2019:

Monday begins with the Moon now in unusual quirky Aquarius. After a serious and likely solitary weekend, you are ready to engage with others to get things done. Seek out people who have a different perspective on what you want to accomplish. You can learn so much by looking outside of your normal way of viewing the world.

Bring as many people as possible together to share in your new ideas and listen to the ideas they are willing to share.

However, the big news comes at 6:17 AM EST when Venus enters expansive optimistic Sagittarius. Remember that Venus represents our personal values and perspective on Love, relationship, and resources. Due to last year’s retrogradeVenus has spent a tremendous amount of time in Libra and Scorpio over the past year. What have you learned about the deepest layers of Love and the diplomacy required to navigate these issues? Now as Venus moves freely into Sagittarius we are able to open our eyes to a more positive, hopeful, and expansive view regarding Love, money, beauty, and resources. You may find yourself offering yourself more freely and ready to say Yes to Love.

The Capricorn Moon is void-of-course very briefly while you sleep, from 1:21 AM EST until she enters Aquarius at 1:46 AM EST. This condition merely suggests that whatever is begun or occurs during this time will not have a significant future impact.

 

 

BE QUICK TO FORGIVE

Tuesday, January 8, 2019:

Last week Mercury (the planet that represents thought processes and communications) entered the serious sign of Capricorn; now it comes to a challenging square aspect to Mars (the planet of action and assertion. Mars has recently entered aggressive Aries. Don’t be surprised to find yourself feeling somewhat frustrated with your thinking or your communications.

On the one hand, you want to think things through carefully and methodically before you speak and yet there is an insistence that you take quick assertive action. Forgive yourself if you say something too quickly or if you miss the opportunity to say what you could have said. By the same token, forgive anyone who says something that offends you or who doesn’t say what you would like to hear.

With the Moon’s movement through objective Aquarius along with Mars being so active in Aries, you may communication difficulties in your intimate relationships. Be quick to forgive. Do not take it personally. Perhaps there has been a bit too much sweetness between you and now you each need to pull away a bit. Widen your interest, look for a more expansive or humanitarian perspective. It may not come easily but do think things through before you open your mouth.

This would be a good day to write or plan a speech to share new or unusual ideas.

 

 

SUFFERING = COMPASSION

Wednesday, January 9, 2019:

If you offended anyone or were offended yesterday, do what you need to do in order to release resentments that may linger. Apologize, let it go and move on with the day. At 11:53 AM EST as the Aquarius Moon sextile unpredictable Uranus pay attention to any unusual ideas or conversations that occur. Welcome unexpected occurrences, thoughts, or conversations.

 

At 2:44 PM EST the Moon enters Pisces leaving you feeling passive and perhaps even sleepy. Go home early and take a nap. Don’t worry about any accomplishment. This evening is best spent on your meditation cushion, or engrossed in your imagination, with a glass of wine, listening to music, or watching a good movie. Let your practical concerns go and enjoy your own open space of private consciousness.

Consider how you think about suffering. Where in your life have you suffered? Has it left you stuck in self-pity or has it moved you to feel deep compassion for others? Pisces understands deep human suffering and its place in the development of compassion. Therefore when the Moon is in Pisces we can more readily touch that understanding.

KINDNESS AND COMPASSION

Thursday, January 10, 2019:

The Moon passes through Pisces forming a lovely aspect to support your dreams and inner growth. You will not have much interested in work or accomplishment. You may even feel the need to rest or dream the day away. Pisces is a Mutable Water sign offering passive, adaptable, but deeply emotional energies. This is a good day for meditation, spending time on water, allowing yourself to be engrossed in imagination, watching movies, creating art, or making music. The Moon in dreamy Pisces is a mixed blessing. If you have to accomplish things that require determination or fortitude you will not be delighted with this Moon placement. However, if you are an artist, a dreamer, or a poet at heart you will welcome another day in this gentle space. While the Moon is in Pisces we all feel softer, more adaptable, sensitive, and vulnerable than usual. Remember this as you interact with others. They may put on a brave face but underneath they are deeply aware of their human susceptibilities. Show compassion and kindness to everyone you encounter.

 

 

A DISPLAY OF POWER

Friday, January 11, 2019:

This is the power day of the week. Once a year the Sun joins with Pluto asking each of us how formidable we are at our core. Engage with your deepest strength of willpower as you answer this question. What do you want to create? How much determination can you access without tipping into greed? This aspect represents the beginning of a one year cycle of bringing deep empowerment to your life purpose. Are your goals and plans in place? Revisit them and make sure they are held on solid ground. Beware of greed and ego battles that no one will really win.

With the Moon still in Pisces in the midst of this display of power you may just want to release everything, rest, and take a nap. Plant a seed to empower yourself in the house of Capricorn and then go for a swim or take a nap.

PASSION AND RISK

Saturday, January 12, 2019:

In the early hours of the morning, the Moon enters assertive Aries and joins with Mars before the day is done. This sets us up for a highly active weekend. Don’t stay home in your PJs.

Get out into the world and make some noise. This is a good weekend for facing your fears and engaging courage. When the Moon is in Aries, it is time to take on a challenge, be competitive, take a risk, prove something to yourself. You may be impulsive and not have the level of caution needed for some of the wild endeavors you are drawn to. If you do engage in risky activities, please keep your safety top of mind.

This is not a time for empathy or romance, don’t buy the roses or chocolates. Go straight for passion.

CONSIDERATIONS

Sunday, January 13, 2019:

Mercury joins with Saturn bringing us a day of serious focused thinking and conversations. With the Moon in Aries, try not to let aggression derail the good that can come from your communications. Slow down your mind and give your words space to breath before speaking them. This is a great day for writing because you can go back and edit the places where inconsiderate Aries may rush to judgment.

One of the signature aspects of 2019 comes into full focus now with Jupiter Square Neptune and will be exact once again in June and September. Consider what these two planets individually represent. Neptune represents what is intangible, teaching us to dream, imagine, suffer and release. Jupiter, on the other hand, represents expansion, enthusiasm, idealism, and excess. I expect we will see an increase in delusional thinking and conspiracy theories over the coming months. Allow yourself to dream but do your best to keep a handle on reality. Given that this is a closing square perhaps we will see the dissolution of idealistic thinking, leaving many confused and adrift. Watch how this plays out for you and the world at large. Look to the houses in your chart that hold Pisces and Sagittarius for more personal information. Something expands in the house that holds Sagittarius as something pushes to dissolve it from the house that holds Pisces. Share your thoughts on how you see this playing out in your life. A consultation with Astrolore will help clarify.

TAKE THE PLUNGE

Monday, December 31, 2018:

It seems appropriate that the Moon is passing through Scorpio, on this last day of 2018. You are naturally inclined to examine issues of power and transformation, you understand that in order to grow you must allow circumstances to be fully overhauled through destruction and regeneration. Open your heart and mind to deep passion, determination, and powerful change.

At 9:19 PM EDT Mars, the planet of assertiveness, strength, and initiative enters Aries, the sign it ‘rules’. Watch the world over the next few days while Mars is at the power point of Zero Degree Aries. You will see issues of courage, rage, strength, and violence clearly exhibited. Look to what house in your own chart holds Aries. What act of courage and initiative is needed? Without taking courageous action you could easily turn to selfishness, impatience, frustration, and anger. Take a deep breath, understand what needs to be done, summon courage, and take the plunge. Don’t worry about the details, for now, it is important that you simply take action where you know it is needed.

 

 

HAPPY NEW YEAR – 2019

Tuesday, January 1, 2019:

The year begins with the Scorpio Moon making easy aspects of power (Pluto) and pleasure (Venus). Rest up from your most recent revelries and parties. Sit down with a hot cup of coffee and work on your goals for the coming year. What issues or circumstances in your life are in need of big change in the year ahead? We all know that New Year’s resolutions are very hard to maintain once the glow wears off.

Never the less, take the time to connect with your deepest desires for change in the coming year. Don’t make unrealistic promises but get clear about what you would like to be different by year’s end. Look deeply into unexplored dark corners of your life/mind, face the truth and prepare to make changes.

With the Moon in Scorpio, go deep as you focus your mind and allow emotions to bubble to the surface. There is transformation and powerful healing work occurring beneath the surface. For now, rest, plan, and allow.

ORGANIZATION AND RESPONSIBILITY
Wednesday, January 2, 2019:

In the wee hours of the morning (12:49 AM EST) the Sun joins with hard-working, authoritative Saturn. This begins a one year cycle of stabilization and determination. Continue developing goals for 2019. What house holds Capricorn in your chart? There is hard work to accomplish in this area; plant a seed for that now.

You may feel satisfaction for work well done or you may feel sluggish, restricted, and insecure. The party is over and it is time to pay the piper. Much of how you feel now depends on how responsible and diligent you have been over the past 12 months. Be prepared to take on more responsibilities, duties, and obligations going forward. Set up systems of organization for the year ahead.

The Moon in Sagittarius helps to lighten a heavy day and encourages you to add travel and learning to your goals for the upcoming year. Do the hard lifting in the morning and take a break later in the day to simply allow yourself to look beyond issues of work. Remember part of your path ahead involves fun and growth. Do not neglect that in your plans.

SEEK NEW EXPERIENCES

Thursday, January 3, 2019:

With the Moon in Sagittarius, you may feel the need to shift and change your physical and emotional environment. You feel adventurous, excited, and possibly restless. You want to have new interesting experiences that will stretch your awareness and understanding.

You will want to push yourself, get outdoors, move your body and mind. Movement is important to keep restlessness at bay.

See and experience the world from a new and different perspective. If you find yourself in a funk get out in the world; people watching will do wonders for your frame of mind. With the Moon square Neptune, make up stories about everyone you see, stretching your mind into imagination will help you to gain a higher understanding of humanity in general.

This is a great day to philosophize with friends; make travel plans, socialize, explore other cultures, and enjoy humor.

 

 

SUDDEN INSIGHTS – WILD EPIPHANIES

Friday, January 4, 2019:

The day begins under the intensely exciting influence of Mercury trine Uranus. Do you remember an unusual idea or new way of thinking that began in May and culminated in October? Now you are ready to share that understanding with a few trusted friends. You may find that you are teaching others without realizing it; we teach a great deal by simply modeling behavior. You may receive exciting or surprising news, have a chance encounter with interesting folks, or have a sudden epiphany. Allow yourself to think outside convention and watch for big ideas or sudden insights.

At 1:55 PM EST the Moon enters Capricorn making for a much less social weekend ahead. After the past few weeks of parties, family, friends, and holidays we are ready to settle in for more goal-oriented solitary time.

Later in the afternoon with the Sun sextile Neptune, your sensitivities are heightened and you may find yourself easily understanding the subtleties of what is happening below the surface. There is empathy and receptivity in the air. We can all more easily understand, love, and forgive.

At 10:39 PM EST Mercury joins the Moon, Saturn, the Sun, Pluto, and the South Node in Capricorn. This leads us into a very serious weekend best dedicated to building self-respect through determination, hard work, and solitary maturity.

 

“Beginning today, treat everyone you meet as if they were going to be dead by midnight. Extend to them all the care, kindness and understanding you can muster, and do it with no thought of any reward. Your life will never be the same again.” ~ Og Mandino

 

 

BUILD WITH INTEGRITY: CAPRICORN NEW MOON

Saturday, January 5, 2019:

If you were hoping for a playful fun weekend, it is time to change those ideas. Now that Mercury is in Capricorn your thinking is more methodical and your planing solid, sober, and practical. It may be a challenge to remain upbeat; watch the fine line between working hard and become overly fixated and pessimistic.

Have you done the serious work of planning for 2019? Take time this weekend to do that. This weekend is an important time for planning.

Today’s New Moon is a partial Solar Eclipse so its impact lasts 6 months rather than the 4 weeks of most New Moons. This Eclipse is conjunct Saturn bringing even more serious effort and intent to the table. Whatever you set up now will reverberate into the future. This is a great time to start or grow a business. Set your goals on paper! Make sure integrity is built into the very fabric of whatever you begin now or the result will be regrettable.

The Capricorn New Moon occurs at 15degrees Capricorn at 8:29 PM EST. It is best to do your New Moon ritual on Sunday or even Monday after the Moon has moved away from the ‘beams of the Sun’. The growth of the seed you plant will be supported by the wait.

Keep your ritual simple. First write down the changes you wish to begin, create, or increase. With the Capricorn New Moon, the intention you set will be ambitious, business related, requiring hard work, and sustained effort.

If you know what house in your birth chart holds Capricorn, it will help you clarify where this effort is needed. For example, if Capricorn rules (is on the cusp of) your 1st house, set an intention for serious effort regarding how you present your personality; if it is in the 4th house set an intention to bring serious effort to your family relationships or your home environment. If Capricorn is in the 7th house perhaps you need to make a significant commitment to a partner; in the 10th house, you may need to put your nose to the grindstone and focus on the ambitious growth of a business.

If you don’t know what house is involved, simply go with your intuition regarding the area of life that requires maturity, focus, and hard work. Better yet check out my Patreon Group or make an appointment for a consultation. Contact me.

~~ The Ritual ~~

Have two candles available; light a candle to represent yourself, as you are in the moment. Light another candle as an aspiration of what you intend to create. Each day take a moment to focus on yourself as you light the first candle, then light the second candle, focusing on drawing to you what you wish to create, bringing the two candles closer together. Do this each day until at the Full Moon, you bring them fully together and acknowledge the result of what you have created.

The Capricorn New Moon suggests that you plant a seed of maturity, facing reality, growth through hard work, and stability.

 

LIGHT AT THE END OF THE TUNNEL

Sunday, January 6, 2019:

When Uranus first entered Taurus in May 2018 you may have been anticipating a major change in some area of your life. In August that change stalled as Uranus turned retrograde. Internal changes needed to occur. Now, slowly we see the light at the end of the tunnel as we prepare for that change. When Uranus reenters Taurus on March 6th forward motion will resume powerfully. What house does Taurus hold in your chart? What is the change you are waiting for? Uranus is the planet of revolution, defiance, and non-conformity. Watch how this plays out over the coming months not only in your personal life but on the cultural, political, and world stage.

The Moon continues through Capricorn until Monday morning. This is a day to spend time alone working on your own goals and ambitions. Get serious about the work that you want to accomplish. Put a stake in the ground and determine the direction that will bring you where you need to go. Work on those Goals. Make plans. Love Life.

INDULGE IN MAGIC

Monday, December 24, 2018:

For most of you, this won’t feel like a normal Monday. Many of you will have the day off and many more of you will go home early. Perhaps you are traveling or busy with company and doing last minute preparations.

You will likely wake early with lots of energy while still focused on family and creating comfort for others. However. when the Moon enters Leo at 11:59 AM EST your focus will shift to celebration, playfulness, and fun.

As the evening approaches allow yourself to release expectations and all the ‘shoulds’ that often crowd your mind. Mercury square Neptune at 7:32 PM EST suggests a lack of clarity in your thinking. Therefore, allow your mind to dream. Listen to music, read poetry. Indulge in the magic of the season with imagination and dreamy sensitivity.

GENEROSITY AND GIVING

Tuesday, December 25, 2018:

This is a lovely day for a holiday celebrated with generosity and giving! The Leo Moon allows us to fully embrace and engage with the playful heart of a child. Dramatic self-expression and playful creativity are front and center. This is a day for open-hearted generosity, a time to embrace the child within. Express love and appreciation in a big way. Think about the stage that is your life; express what you want the world to see. Take a creative risk, allow others to see a part of yourself that you normally keep under wraps. Allow your most sparkly side to shine through. You may be surprised at how good it feels. Your inner child wants to come out to play.

If you are an introvert, express your appreciation of others. If you do not want to be on stage, applaud someone who does.

 

 

A SATISFIED EVENING

Wednesday, December 26, 2018:

A great post-holiday morning made for brunch with family or friends. The Moon remains in expressive, fun-loving Leo until she enters Virgo at 12:49 PM EST. At that point, you may want to head home and spend the afternoon tidying up after the festivities. You can expect a practical afternoon where productivity feels deeply enjoyable due to a lovely trine aspect formed between the Capricorn Sun and the Virgo Moon. Settle in for an afternoon and evening of practical activities. Remember that the Moon sets the tone for each day and changes sign every 2 ½ days. With the Moon in Virgo, you will find yourself serious, dedicated, and thoughtful. This is a good time to accomplish a project that requires detailed effort and efficiency. Enjoy a quiet and satisfied evening.

BACK TO WORK

Thursday, December 27, 2018:

If you need to head back to work after the holiday this is the optimal day to do so. The elementally stable Virgo Moon keeps things chugging along with practical efficiency. You will likely encounter both challenges and flow as the Moon alternates between aspects of ease and struggle throughout the day.

Watch your expectations and be easy on yourself. Watch the tone in your voice and curb any tendency to be critical. Showing kindness through practical service to others will ease your own self-criticism.

While the Moon is in Virgo you are deeply dedicated, thoughtful, and detail oriented.

As we come to the end of 2018 you may be thinking of New Year’s resolutions. The Virgo Moon offers the perfect time to consider that new health or fitness regime.

 

 

SOCIAL CHARM

Friday, December 28, 2018:

Mostly a quiet day of simple productivity on mundane issues or projects that are already in full swing. When the Moon enters Libra at 3:23 PM EST focus shifts from solitary service to a deep desire to connect with others. Offer the gifts of Libra this evening; the desire to please, engage in social niceties and create beauty. Commit yourself to achieve balance, fairness, and pleasure in all your interactions. Remember that as an air sign Libra’s charm comes from a fundamentally intellectual place. Libra knows how to create companionship, romance, and social alliances.

At 4:31 PM EST with Venus (the planet of love and beauty) forming a sweet sextile aspect of opportunity to Pluto (the planet of empowerment and productivity). Look for an opportunity to release something that is holding your back from your true calling of human love and kindness.

RELEASE AND REFINE

Saturday, December 29, 2018:

The Moon continues through diplomatic, social Libra reaching the 3rd Quarter Moon Phase in the early hours of the morning. The themes to work with at this phase are those of release, letting go, and forgiveness. Let go of any grudges, and all messes, this intense holiday season has left you with. The challenges you release now with help you fully engage with the new cycle that begins at next week’s New Moon. Clean up any mess left over from the revelries of the past week. Go into the next phase and the upcoming new year with a clean slate. Shed what is no longer needed.

This is a great weekend to enjoy cultural activities, go to a museum, a concert, or gather together a group of friends. Any issues that arise are best met with dispassionate objectivity. Put cooperation, the harmony of the group, and an attitude of refinement ahead of other consideration. It may not be easy to take a stand, be decisive, or speak up for yourself., but that is how it should be right now. Let yourself off the hook. Rest in the pleasure. There is always another day to take action or speak up.

 

 

POWER BELOW THE SURFACE

Sunday, December 30, 2018:

The Moon remains in diplomatic, relationship-oriented Libra and offers her gifts throughout the day. She brings the desire to please, engage in social niceties and create beauty. You may find yourself looking to others for balance, fairness, and pleasure. While the Moon moves through Libra we all desire companionship, charm, and beauty. Remember that Libra is an Air sign, it is fundamentally an intellectual charm and connection that is important here. Seek out companionship, friendships, social alliances, and intimate gatherings.

At 8:23 PM EST the Moon leaves all that politeness behind to enter the dark passionate waters of Scorpio. It is time to release the need to charm in order to engage on a deeply emotional and passionate level. 2018 ends and 2019 begins with each of us fully aware of the deeper intensities that reside below the surface, personally and socially. Even as we come to the end of the year and want to bring in the New Year with excitement and fun we are powerfully aware of the transformations that await us in the coming year. There are deep and powerful questions below the surface of your mind and the wider culture. As you fall asleep you may want to begin looking into those deep corners, ask yourself what you can personally offer to the cause of human transformation.

A FEISTY DAY
Monday, December 17, 2018:

The day begins under the feisty influence of Mars sextile Pluto. Think back to a challenging situation that occurred or began in late April 2018. Bringing that circumstance to mind may open a door toward a more passionate engagement with your life.

The Moon in Aries brings that sense of feistiness into all aspects of the day. Midmorning you may find that you are challenged by someone else’s power dynamics. Engage with determination and well-protected boundaries, do not engage with anger. If anger arises, check in with yourself to determine what exactly hurt your feelings.

At 9:28 PM EST the Aries Moon forms a Trine aspect to the Sagittarius Sun. This is a positive firey energy that won’t want you drifting off to sleep peacefully. If you have a partner to frolic in the sheets with head to bed, otherwise move energy through your body with dance or other engaging activities that bring your whole body into focus. Enjoy.

 

 

 

CREATE A SPOT OF BEAUTY
Tuesday, December 18, 2018:

The Taurus Moon offers a few days early of quiet stability. You will probably be aware of your desire for security, comfort, and beauty. The general mood is sensual, solid, and stable.

Let all of the stress associated with the holidays slide off your back and remember what is really important. It is not about gifts and spending money. Bring beauty into your home with an open heart of love.

Even if there is chaos elsewhere make your bed and put flowers on the bedside table and your dining room table. A calm domestic environment will bring great benefits to everyone involved. If you must buy gifts purchase gift certificates for massage. Everyone needs that!

THE GIFT OF RELAXATION AND LOYALTY
Wednesday, December 19, 2018:

The desire/ need for loyalty, security, peace, and comfort is what motivates us when the Moon is in Taurus. We look for sensuality and constancy. Our basic instincts are to resist change, slow down and relax. Seek comfort and a relaxed escape from the chaos that seems to be a constant in this holiday season.
With the Moon in sensual slow moving Taurus, you are able to experience life more fully through your senses. This is a day to be quiet and still. There is no need to push yourself in the service of accomplishment. You may want to indulge your senses with good food, lovemaking, music, and a massage.
Your senses are aroused by nature. If possible get outdoors, listen to the trees sing and pay attention to the messages the earth constantly provides.

Activities will likely revolve around home and family, loyalty is on display and helps to ground and stabilize you through this season. Keep your home a place of calm. Close the door on the anxiety the advertisers are pushing on you. Your family needs love not gifts.

FOLLOW YOUR CURIOSITY
Thursday, December 20, 2018:

Following a few quiet slow days now it is time to wake up! The Moon finds herself in busy, social Gemini as the Sun trine Uranus at 11:21 AM EST. Keep your eyes open for an unexpected surprise or a communication coming out of the blue that changes the landscape of the week. Consider what began in mid-April that is now ripe and offering its gifts. Those gifts may open a door to a surprising new reality.

With the Moon in Gemini, you will want intellectual stimulation. This is a great time for social activities, phone calls and catching up on emails. Most folks will be feeling more lighthearted than usual. If you happen to find yourself feeling low ask what you should be doing that you are avoiding. That will likely direct you to the thing that is keeping you down.

This is a great time to engage in storytelling and listening to the stories that others want to share. We learn so much through stories. Start a journal, write a story, exchange ideas & information. Follow your curiosity.

WINTER SOLSTICE – SUN ENTERS CAPRICORN
Friday, December 21, 2018:

A highly active day with the Moon still in talkative curious Gemini. You will likely hear a great deal of chatter!

At 12:11 PM EST we encounter a trine aspect between Venus and Neptune which encourages us to soften our values and see the beauty in all things. Clarity may be lacking but feelings and expressions of love and beauty are deep and tender.

Right on the heels of that, at 12:36 PM EST Mercury joins with Jupiter both now in Sagittarius. We all have our opinions and not many of us will be shy about expressing them at this time. Engage humor as you watch folks tripping over themselves to express the opinions they are so sure are RIGHT. Laugh at your own big opinions as well.

At 5:22 PM EST we enter Capricorn Season as the Sun moves into this serious hard working sign. This brings us to the Winter Solstice here in the Northern Hemisphere (Summer Solstice in the Southern Hemisphere).

With the Sun in Capricorn, it is time to deeply consider your responsibilities and ambitions. Now is when you will start considering your upcoming New Year’s resolutions.

According to Bob Dylan “A hero is someone who understands the responsibility that comes with freedom.”

 

SENSITIVE CANCER FULL MOON
Saturday, December 22, 2018:

The Sun is now in Capricorn with the Cancer Full Moon occurring at 11:27 AM EST. This is the final Full Moon of 2018 and has a deeply sensitive vibe due to its making a challenging aspect to Chiron, the planet of our wounding. Your heart may feel extremely sensitive and tender. Remember that your vulnerability is connected to the vulnerability of all humans; show compassion to everyone you encounter. Please also remember that we are all under this influence.

Offer kindness and chocolate cake. Yes, comfort food helps. Whatever activity you initiated at the New Moon two weeks ago culminates and is illuminated here at the Full Moon.

When the Moon is in protective Cancer you seek security within the context of a biological or chosen family. Gather with loved ones, go out of your way to offer food, comfort, and kindness.

SENSITIVITY AND NOSTALGIA
Sunday, December 23, 2018:

Sometimes I think I need a spare heart to feel all the things I feel.” ~ Sanober Khan

With the Moon in Cancer, you may find yourself reaching for comfort food and the safety of family and intimate loved ones. You will want to retreat to the place you feel most at home and may feel more nostalgic and domestic than usual.

Everyone you meet may be consumed with memories and thoughts of the past. This could be a very moody day so go ahead and stay in bed, indulge in chocolate or whatever soothes your soul.

This is a dynamic and mysterious universe and human life is, no doubt, conditioned by imponderables of which we are only dimly aware. People sometimes say, “the strangest coincidence happened.” Coincidences may seem strange, but they are never a result of caprice. They are orderly laws in the spiritual life of man. They affect and influence our lives profoundly. These so-called imponderables are so important that you should become spiritually sensitized to them. Indeed, the more spiritually minded you become the more acute your contact will be with these behind-the-scenes forces. By being alive to them through insight, instruction, and illumination, you can make your way past errors and mistakes on which, were you less spiritually sensitive, you might often stumble.”  ~ Norman Vincent Peale, Stay Alive All Your Life
