Astrology by Astrolore: Powerful Guidance for Daily Life

Astrolore’s Weekly Astrology Weather: April 15, 2019, through April 21, 2019

 

“Each planet in the birth-chart is a letter of the cosmic word sounded forth through space at the moment of our first inhalation…  A basic factor in natal astrology is the pattern made between the planets. Each planet represents a fundamental mode of activity: that is, an organic function, psychological as well as biological. The aspects between the planets describe the manner in which they interact, reinforcing or weakening each other, revealing a smooth type of cooperation between functional activities or indicating organic, psychosomatic tensions. The general distribution of the planets within the zodiac — whether, for instance, they are clustered within a small section of the zodiac or spread out more or less evenly through the sky — tells us a great deal about the meaning of this celestial word which constitutes the real name of the individual person.” ~Dane Rudhyar

 

 

 

PRACTICALITY TURNS TO PLEASURE

Monday, April 15, 2019:

The week begins with the moon in practical efficient Virgo making it a relatively easy day to get back to your day-job without resentment. You may even welcome the opportunity to return to an orderly schedule with clear tasks to be done. You will find mundane detail-oriented assignments to be surprisingly satisfying.

During the evening hours Venus, the planet of beauty and pleasure forms a square aspect to optimistic Jupiter, leaving you susceptible to overextension of your energies. Pay attention to where the tendency to excess will show up for you. If you feel an irresistible urge to indulge, do so in an area that you won’t regret later. If you are going to eat that entire quart of ice cream do so without shame, own it! If you know you will regret it later, think about something else to indulge in. Schedule a massage or spend the entire evening engaged in giving and receiving pleasure.

PAY ATTENTION TO THE DETAILS

Tuesday, April 16, 2019:

You can anticipate a relatively quiet day as the Moon passes through service-oriented Virgo. While the Moon is in Virgo, you are able to watch yourself closely, analyzing and aware of every detail that seems to not meet the exacting standards you aspire to. Your expectations of yourself and others may be higher than usual and you carefully and critically observe progress and processes. Do your best to curb the tendency to be critical. As much as possible replace criticism with understanding and kindness. Find simple ways to be of service to others. Focus on observing, respecting, and releasing judgment as you make yourself available to help others in practical ways. This is a good day for practical activities. You may want to do your grocery shopping, laundry, and house cleaning. Work on projects that will benefit from paying particular attention to details.

 

 

THE FOG CLEARS NOW

Wednesday, April 17, 2019:

By the time the day begins Mercury, the planet that represents our thought processes and communications has moved into Aries where it will remain until May 6th. You may be surprised by the heat and quickness of your thinking and how easily you are able to make decisions that have beleaguered you over the past few months (since February 10th). Mercury has been in Pisces for so long we have grown accustomed to living in a bit of an uncertain mental fog. The fog has now cleared and your decisions and actions will come much easier and quicker over the coming weeks. Assertiveness and confidence is on the rise, watch yourself and others to see this in action. We are ready to speak our minds although the Libra Moon will keep us from being too direct about it for a few more days.

The Moon enters Libra at 7:23 AM EDT supporting diplomacy and understanding. As an air sign, Libra’s fundamental need is to create pleasant and charming social interactions. Seek to engage with others in a manner that provides cooperation, diplomacy, and compromise. Put cooperation and refinement ahead of other considerations. The heat of certain communications will wait and build in understanding over the next few days.

SLOW DOWN AND COMPROMISE

Thursday, April 18, 2019:

The Moon gently flows through charming, pleasant Libra throughout the day. Because Libra represents issues of relationship and beauty it is easy to think of it as an emotionally loving sign. This is not the purpose of Libra! Libra is an Air sign and seeks a fundamentally intellectual charm and understanding the balance of polarities through relationships. What we want at this time is companionship, friendships, social alliances, and intimate gatherings in order to intellectually understand ourselves more deeply. We want to engage with others in ways that teach us cooperation, diplomacy, and compromise.

Under this influence enjoy social and cultural activities, and connecting with others. Because Libra teaches compromise it may not be easy to take a stand, be decisive, or speak up for yourself. You don’t need to, there is always another day to be decisive and outwardly assertive.

Because Mercury is now in Aries you may be champing at the bit to directly speak your mind. You will be able to do that shortly after the Full Moon Friday morning when the Moon enters Scorpio. For now, you will be better off waiting; while you wait surround yourself with beauty.

 

 

FULL LIBRA MOON – OPEN YOUR EYES

Friday, April 19, 2019:

Everyone seems to be aware that we all go a little crazy (hopefully in a good way) at the Full Moon each month. When I was young and worked in an institutional setting with highly unstable clients we always scheduled extra staff at the Full Moon. Those extra folks were always needed as even our most compliant clients would do what they could to escape. What did they see about their lives and situations that wasn’t an issue except at these times of full awareness?

At the Full phase, the Moon is in the exact opposite position from the Sun and reflects the full amount of light that she can absorb. We see what we normally cannot see. Light fills ordinarily dark corners. Make it a serious practice to pay attention to any new found awareness that comes at the New Moon.

The last Full Moon on March 20th was also in Libra (generally speaking we have only one Full Moon in each sign in any given year). I think this simply gives us another opportunity to clearly observe ourselves regarding the issues of Libra, particularly in the area of your life represented by the house Libra occupies in your natal chart. Examine your current satisfaction in close relationships. Consider issues of understanding and compromise. Ask yourself: is yours a true partnership of equals?

Shortly after the Full Moon, she leaves Libra behind to enter Scorpio allowing newfound awareness to transform your understanding of your circumstances. Open your eyes. Anticipate seeing something you have not seen before. This Scorpio Moon wants you to bring what is hidden into the light, to be excavated, and brought forth for healing.

THE SUN ENTERS SENSUAL RELIABLE TAURUS

Saturday, April 20, 2019:

This is a day of significant change as the Sun leaves impulsive Aries behind to bring its light and warmth to steadfast Taurus for the coming month. Happy Birthday to all of you born during Taurus Season.

While the Sun is in Taurus we are motivated by our senses and are highly aware of the natural world during this season of growth here in the Northern Hemisphere. Plants are sending their roots deep into the earth just as our determination and loyalty to the process of growth and development is taking root as well.

A bit later in the day, Venus (ruler of Taurus) finds her way out of passive Pisces into forceful, assertive Aries. Now that all the personal planets have left Pisces behind you may feel as though you are waking from a dream and finally seeing the open road ahead.

With the Moon still in Scorpio throughout the day, it is important that you have a concentrated area of attention. A clear focus will help with any disorientation as the planets shift sign. This is not a time for lighthearted connections, connect with others from a place of depth and passion.

STRETCH YOUR THINKING

Sunday, April 21, 2019:

During the morning with the Moon in Scorpio, you may find yourself inclined to examine the deeper (even the darker) side of life and love. Consider issues of deep passion, determination, and powerful transformative change. Spend the morning going quietly inward toward these contemplations.

At noontime, things lighten up considerably as the Moon enters Sagittarius. Now you will find yourself inclined to let loose and search for fun. Let go of all the deep contemplations of the past few days and look for enjoyable explorations.

This is a time to cultivate understanding, humor, and wisdom. Ask questions and get curious about the way that others think, stretch your mind beyond previously limited views, and expand your awareness.

RELAX IN THE MIST
Monday, April 8, 2019:

You may wonder why even with Mercury now moving forward and the Sun well into Aries, you still have the feeling of wandering through a fog. Don’t worry, it won’t last too much longer. For now, relax into it. Rely a bit more on intuition than you normally would. Venus, the planet of love and Mercury, the planet of communication are still floating within the mists of Neptune, the planet of elusive dreams. Don’t be disturbed if reality seems a bit challenging to grasp and those around you seem oversensitive or even bewildered. The best way to use this energy is to welcome the rest, focus on spiritual growth, develop compassion, write poetry, and spend time in prayer and meditation.
The Moon in Taurus, making no aspect throughout the day supports a day focused on rest and comfort.
At 5:16 PM EDT the Moon enters Gemini, you may suddenly find yourself ready to enjoy a cheerful evening in the company of dynamic enthusiastic friends.

COUNT TO TEN
Tuesday, April 9, 2019:

With the Moon in Gemini conjunct Mars in the early morning hours, your mind and your voice want to move quickly. There may be little concern for others, leaving them easily caught in the crossfire and left feeling hurt or offended.
Slow down a bit and don’t say everything that comes to mind. Didn’t your parents tell you to count to ten before speaking your mind? This is a good day to practice that type of restraint.
Later in the day as Venus approaches Neptune we have a few more days of increased sensitivity and dreaminess. Your intimate relationships may reach great heights of devotion as you are able to tap into powerful compassion, inspiration, and even transcendence through Love connections. Your imagination is strong and reality doesn’t have a very firm hold on you regarding love. Below the surface, things may be very different than they seem. Please do enjoy the rose-colored glasses AND understand that reality will land you on more solid stable ground.

 

 

PATIENCE IS YOUR FRIEND
Wednesday, April 10, 2019:

Such a complex day may have you wondering which end is up and exactly how to proceed. The Moon is (appropriately) in Gemini, offering the ability to move quickly between emotional realities.
Venus conjunct Neptune suggests that you are able to experience open compassionate connections and a deep awareness of Oneness with all of life. However, the Sun squaring Saturn will not let you rest in that easy space but brings serious challenges that must be faced. Reality and dreamy fantasy wrangle against one another. Are your responsibilities pushing against the beautiful inspiration you long for? You must give space to both the realities and the dreams, both must be honored with patience and self-kindness.
Look for an opportunity in the evening to engage in deep powerful conversations, study, and/or research. Your mind is able to probe deeply into corners that are not often available for exploration.
Jupiter turns retrograde in Sagittarius and will stay in this condition until August 11th. Look to the house that holds Sagittarius in your chart. Something that has been expanding in this area of your life is now due for a rest. Stop pushing and allow the process to continue on a more internal level. Trust that the work goes on and that there will be a renewed increase later in the year.
Just before sleep the Moon enters Cancer. Sleep will nurture you at the end of this active challenging day.

CREATE LOVING MEMORIES
Thursday, April 11, 2019:

As you regain your bearings you can anticipate more rest and ease with very little astrological activity throughout the day. The Moon moves through sensitive Cancer encouraging you to settle into the safety net of family, close friends, and comfort food. If your life is more complicated than to allow for such simplicity you may find yourself feeling nostalgic and consumed with memories and thoughts of the past.
If your thoughts of the past all seem rosy and bright, question yourself. On a day like this, your memory is probably playing a few tricks on you. Rather than spending time on the past, create comfort for yourself and your family now. Engage in domestic chores and routines, bring food to your loved ones, offer comfort and solace. Yes, you may be quite moody but think how deeply you can impact others by bringing warmth, love, and chocolate cake to those you love.
Spend the day creating loving memories rather than dwelling in the past.

 

 

THE COURAGE TO SHOW VULNERABILITY
Friday, April 12, 2019:

Mid-morning (11:07 AM EDT) brings a sextile aspect between Venus and Saturn, suggesting that you are able to develop a warm sense of connection with your coworkers. You probably also feel positive regard for the projects and plans you are working on and the accomplishments of the day. The Moon is still in Cancer encouraging you to relate to others on a deeply personal level.
However, by mid-afternoon, you may wonder why you wanted that level of familiarity with your coworkers as the First Quarter Square of the Moon (a square aspect between the Cancer Moon and the Aries Sun at 3:06 PM EDT) challenges that connection. The First Quarter Moon brings with it challenges and opportunities. Do not question your kindness and your willingness to allow others to see your vulnerabilities. That takes courage! It may feel difficult at the moment but in the long run, remember that within our vulnerabilities lay our strengths.

RELEASE CONTROL – SURRENDER INTENSITY
Saturday, April 13, 2019:

Anticipate a powerful weekend and one you may remember long after it has passed. By the time the day begins the Moon is in dramatic, expressive Leo and the Sun has formed a square aspect to powerful Pluto. You may feel an edge of fear or determination in everything you try to do. You may struggle with the need to be in control as you encounter folks who may challenge you on your efforts, understanding, or authority. You will do well to step aside and release your egos’ position unless you think it is a good idea to push hard to defend that position. Do your best to channel and surrender the intensity you feel into a project, accomplishment, or hard work.
Spend time with creative activities. Hold love and kindness to the light. When the challenges have passed, play as though it were your job. Allow all difficulties and challenges to pass without holding on tightly. Bring affection, fondness, and radiance to all that you do.

WARMTH, GENEROSITY, AND PLAY

Sunday, April 14, 2019:

What a difference a day makes, and in this case, I expect you will experience it as a delightful difference. Gone are the power dynamics from yesterday. Perhaps you made great decisions and are now reaping the benefits. At 9:40 AM EDT the Sun trine expansive Jupiter, both in Fire Signs, offering a flow of enthusiasm, warmth, and joyful celebration. Make this a special day. Gather with friends for fun and play. If you have children in your life, spend time with them. Build fairy houses in the woods, put on a play, or fly a kite! Don’t be afraid of looking foolish, we can all use a day of active creativity and play. Allow your warmth, generosity, and open-hearted acceptance to rule the day.
At 7:51 PM EDT Venus forms a supportive sextile aspect to Pluto deepening your love relationships and increasing your desire for close companionship. This brings you to a great evening for romance or deep connections with friends. Relationships and romances may begin at this time so if you are looking for love or closer friendships don’t stay home alone tonight. Get out into the world where you can meet and mingle with others.

FIND TIME TO DREAM

Monday, April 1, 2019:

Whatever ideas you engaged with over the weekend are likely to stay with you for the early part of the morning. Any new experiences or thought patterns will continue to hover around the edges of your mind. At 10:49 AM ET when the Moon enters Pisces your attention shifts from aloof intellectualizing to a place of sensitivity and compassion. You may not feel much like working, preferring to escape the harsh real-world in favor of losing yourself in imagination or mystical concerns.

If your work involves creativity or empathy toward others you’ll accomplish what you need to, otherwise, you may end up doing a fair share of daydreaming. Go easy on your coworkers with the understanding that their minds are not solidly engaged with real-world efforts any more than yours are. Allow time throughout the day to meditate or dream.

LET INTUITION SET THE TONE

Tuesday, April 2, 2019:

If you have a traditional job you are unquestionably expected to be productive each and every day you are scheduled for work. As the Moon passes through Pisces for several days each month this isn’t easy to do as you are quite prone to daydreaming and possibly feeling quite sleepy.

This can be a challenging time to follow the strict routine set out in your daily planner and to hold yourself to a time clock. Do your best to allow your intuition to set the tone and pace of the day.

Given that your boss and coworkers are also impacted by this, it may be easier than you expect. Watch them for signs that they are also struggling to stay on task.

On your lunch break be sure to get outside and deeply breath the Spring air. Perhaps you could ask a struggling coworker to join you. Exercise your personal muscles of compassion and empathy.

 

 

DEEP UNDERSTANDING AND REST

Wednesday, April 3, 2019:

As the Moon continues through the Mutable Water sign of Pisces, she spends the majority of the day making no aspects to other planets. You can anticipate a quiet day of receptivity and calm in your environment.

We are currently in the Dark of the Moon (the New Moon comes in two days), the Moon is VOC*, and the Moon in Pisces which is the last sign of the Zodiac. Everything points to closure and rest. The sign of Pisces is ruled by ethereal Neptune which blurs and dissolves the boundaries between ourselves and others. At this time you are able to deeply feel the reality of profound connection and understanding that we are all connected. Allow yourself to rest in the quiet, sensitive, emotional sense that we are all One.

Don’t worry too much about accomplishments, take time to nap, daydream, love, meditate or pray.

At 10:15 PM ET the Moon enters Aries and it is time to shake off the sleepy dreamy vibes of the past few days. Going for a night run or making love before bed will help you sleep.

ACTION WILL COME SOON ENOUGH

Thursday, April 4, 2019:

At the Dark of the Moon (New Moon on Friday at 4:51 AM ET) with the Moon now in Aries this is a good time to deeply contemplate issues of courage and determination. Look to the house that holds Aries in your chart to understand the area of your life that you need to face with independence and fearlessness. At the New Moon, this is where you will plant your seed of growth and change. For now, maintain an attitude of consideration. Even though you may be tempted to do so, please don’t allow yourself to take action too quickly. Courage may be required to hold back your tendency toward rash and reckless action.

Rest in reflection and consideration; action will come soon enough.

 

 
 

ARIES NEW MOON: PLANT A SEED OF COURAGE

Friday, April 5, 2019:

The Aries New Moon occurs at 4:51 AM ET. Aries is the first sign of the Zodiac and represents dynamic beginnings and new assertions, each New Moon represents a new beginning as well, therefore this is a time to plant a seed to begin the entire process of the coming astrological year. Where do you need an influx of energetic assertion and bravery? Where do you need to act alone to bring a new reality into focus? Consider performing this New Moon Ritual anytime within the next 24 – 36 hours. If you know your rising sign, use the ideas below as a jumping off place to determine what you need to bring forth and how best to begin. Please share your ideas and experiences.

 

~~New Moon Ritual ~~

ARIES NEW MOON RITUAL

Take a moment to write down the changes you wish to begin, create, or increase in this Moon Cycle. The Aries New Moon suggests that you plant a seed of determination, fearlessness, and independence.

Have two candles available. Light a candle to represent yourself, as you are at this moment. Light another candle as inspiration for what you intend to create. Take a moment to focus on yourself as you light the first candle. Then, light the second candle, imagining drawing toward you what you want to create as you physically bring the two candles closer together.

Do this each day for two weeks until the Libra Full Moon (April 19th) when you will bring the candles fully together and acknowledge the result of what you have created.

If you know your rising sign (Ascendant) consider the seed that you need to plant in your life.

If you have:

  • Aries Rising, plant a seed of Personal Awareness through Self Expression (get a haircut or change your outward expression)
  • Taurus Rising, plant a seed of Self Transcendence through Selfless Service (visit someone in a hospital or retirement home)
  • Gemini Rising, plant a seed of Receptivity within Community (find a new community that will offer support)
  • Cancer Rising, plant a seed of Integrity through Social Recognition (show up in a more responsible way in your job)
  • Leo Rising, plant a seed of Mind Expansion by elevating your World View (travel or study something that will open your mind)
  • Virgo Rising, plant a seed of Transformation by Understanding the Values of Others (Listen to those who are unlike you)
  • Libra Rising, plant a seed of Cooperation through Partnerships (take action to deepen your connection with a partner)
  • Scorpio Rising, plant a seed of Self Improvement by prioritizing your Routines (start a new exercise, dietary, or spiritual practice)
  • Sagittarius Rising, plant a seed of Generosity through the Expression of Creativity (join an art class or start a new creative project)
  • Capricorn Rising, plant a seed of Security through stabilizing your Home & Foundation (clean your home, plan or plant a garden)
  • Aquarius Rising, plant a seed of Mental Engagement within your Immediate Environment (write a letter, connect with a sibling)
  • Pisces Rising, plant a seed of Self Love through Understanding your Deep Worth (give yourself a very special gift)

FULLY ENGAGE YOUR SENSES

Saturday, April 6, 2019:

When the Moon enters Taurus at 9:07 AM ET it is time to begin the day. Other than a bit of excitement or anxiety due to the conversation the Moon has with Uranus at 12:08 PM ET, this is a day when you will be motivated by the need for comfort and security. You want to slow down and enjoy the sensual experience of your body and the natural world. This is a day to relax, “stop and smell the roses”, and don’t allow yourself to fall into a trap of materialism. It would be a good idea to avoid shopping altogether, instead take a walk in the woods. At the end of the day, you will feel much better with memories of the trees singing to you rather than paying for that new wardrobe.

Feed your senses in every way imaginable. Focus on all that you see, hear, taste, touch, and smell. Create pleasure for all your senses and engage in them with deep reverence. Really taste what you eat, and notice the smells you create as you cook that comfort food. Make it a point to fully feel what you touch, listen to music with your ears open fully, and look at that sunset as though it is the last one you will ever see!

Share a wonderful meal with your partner, family, or a close friend. Enjoy a low key evening of comfort and warmth.

A MISSED OPPORTUNITY IS OFFERED ONCE AGAIN

Sunday, April 7, 2019:

In mid-January Mercury began its current cycle with Saturn, a cycle of bringing your intellectual understanding to a project you are attempting to bring to fruition. Did you start a new study or project at that time? Over the course of the two and a half months since then, you have alternated between curiosity and aggravation about how to move forward with this project or study.

Early this morning (Mercury sextile Saturn) pay attention, you may finally recognize the opportunity that you may have missed several times. There is still no action that needs to be taken, just begin research and preparations. The time to take action will be here soon enough, just at the very beginning of May.

The Moon remains in Taurus suggesting a low key and pleasant day. Enjoy a beautiful environment. Even if the rest of the house is a mess, make the bed, clear off the table, bring flowers into the dining room and bedroom. Rest and find calm clear beauty and pleasure.

SEEK UNDERSTANDING

Monday, March 25, 2019:

The week begins with the Moon in idealistic philosophical Sagittarius. You may be surprised at how easy it is to get up and begin the day.

Following her Full Illumination at the Equinox last week, the Moon is now waning and forms a trine aspect to the Sun at 10:31 AM EDT. This suggests an exuberant outpouring of the energies that were first fully understood at the Equinox. You are now encouraged to open yourself to explorations and experiences that may change the very fabric of your belief system. It is important not to get stuck with particular beliefs simply because you have never questioned them. Open your mind and engage with the views of others. Listen and ask questions with an honest and deep desire to understand.

HELP RELIEVE HUMAN SUFFERING

Tuesday, March 26, 2019:

Even as the core energy of the season is reflecting issues of force, determination, and courage (Sun in Aries), we are reminded of our softer values as Venus enters deeply sensitive Pisces at 3:43 PM EDT. Venus will remain in Pisces until April 20th. During this time your values will continually remind you of the importance of compassion which is developed through understanding the suffering of others. You may be aware in the coming days of how your own suffering has built the muscle of empathy within yourself. Use the determination of the Aries Sun to find a way to make compassion manifest. Find a way to sooth the suffering of even one other person.

The Moon continues her waning path through Sagittarius encouraging optimism and understanding as you endeavor to be of greater service in your world.

FUTURE POSSIBILITIES

Wednesday, March 27, 2019:

With Venus having entered Pisces she now forms a sweet sextile aspect to unconventional Uranus (exact at 12:45 PM EDT). Perhaps you are considering the potential for a more unique or unorthodox approach to your love relationship or to how you make income. Perhaps you are waking up to the reality that others hold different expectations regarding love or money than you do. Don’t try to make rash changes in these areas but consider what changes excite you that may be possible in the future.

With the Moon in conventional Capricorn, you bring a serious tone to these contemplations. You are deeply aware of the importance of your ambitions and responsibilities. You understand that these ideas and the possibly upcoming changes may be unusual but you can not allow them to be frivolous or to put your future goals in danger. Integrity plays an important role in whatever you do today.

MOVE FORWARD: MERCURY TURNS DIRECT

Thursday, March 28, 2019:

Depending on the time zone you live in the Capricorn Last Quarter Moon was exact last night or in the wee hours of this morning. Remember that the Last Quarter Moon is a time when you must shift your attention. This is a time of reorientation and/or release. It is important to pay attention to the full scope of your goals for this cycle. What is working and what is not working regarding those goals? Take corrective action or push for release and completion.

The great news of the day is that at 9:59 AM EDT Mercury stations direct at 16 degrees Pisces. Mercury will remain in Pisces until April 17th, so don’t expect clarity of thought and communications right away. Remember that Mercury represents the intellect and while is Pisces our thinking can be rather vague and emotional. Use this time to deepen your connection to poetry, compassion, empathy, and sensitivity. Don’t even try to pin those dreamy thoughts down yet. It is just too soon.

 

 

STEP OUT OF THE FRAY

Friday, March 29, 2019:

The Moon continues her travels through authoritative hard-working Capricorn throughout the day. The morning begins with her making contact with powerful sometimes coercive Pluto. If anyone in your workplace challenges your authority or enters into issues of power and control, don’t engage in kind. No one will come out the winner in these types of manipulations. Rise above and step away from the fray. Go for a run or stop at the gym on your way home. Moving energy through your body with physical exertion will settle you into an easy pleasant evening.

At 9:46 PM EST the Moon enters progressive, inventive, and rebellious Aquarius. Head out with your more unusual friends to let off steam or settle in and enjoy wild and quirky dreams. A fun weekend awaits.

BREAKTHROUGH INNOVATIONS

Saturday, March 30, 2019:

Anticipate and plan for a weekend with your most unique innovative friends. Seek a community that you can connect with that may teach you something about people who are unlike you. Many scientific studies have shown that diversity enhances creativity. Being around folks who are different from us may not be easy but it encourages us to search for novel perspectives and leads to better decision making and problem-solving. Breakthrough innovations happen when we open our eyes, minds, and hearts to perspectives outside of our comfort zone. When the Moon is in Aquarius it comes more easily.

Seek out people of a different race, sexuality, gender identification, age group, nationality, and even political affiliation. Listen. Really listen and you may be surprised at what you learn. We are all human and we all have valid reasons for our opinions. We must learn to understand each other and offer love to all sorts of people. The only expectation should be your own learning and your own open heart.

 

 

HOW CAN YOU HELP?

Sunday, March 31, 2019:

During the night Mars, the planet of determination and strength leaves steady Taurus behind to enter restless Gemini. Mars spends approximately 1 ½ month in each sign and will remain in Gemini until May 15th. During his stay in Gemini, you can expect a great deal of enthusiastic and changeable activity. It pushing forward for getting things done you may find yourselves with less focus l but a great deal more excitement and willingness to experiment. Your interests may become more diverse and scattered. You may have many new exciting opportunities and your passions toward life, in general, may fluctuate wildly. Go with it, play with experimentation, and enjoy the ride.

The Moon continues through innovative, unconventional Aquarius leaving you feeling somewhat distant from those you are normally close to. You may long for space from close emotional connections as you look for a more expansive or humanitarian perspective.

Bring strangers together to share in and play with new thoughts and ideas. Engage in intellectual conversations about the state of the world, consider what you can do to help the suffering of others in the world.

SHOW LOVE

Monday, March 18, 2019:

The week begins on a cheerful note with the Moon in creative, playful Leo. At 11:18 AM she forms a lovely trine aspect to idealistic Jupiter increasing the good feelings of the day.

This is a day to allow others to see the full expression of your unique personality. Get creative as you prepare for the day. Leave your ordinary drab clothing in the closet, show your self-confidence with bright colors and dramatic accessories.

Allow your most sparkly side to shine through. You may be surprised to see that others respond with increased self-expression of their own. Express love boldly to all who you encounter. Allow warmth, generosity, and open-hearted acceptance to emanate from your soul. Show Love.

ATTENTION TO DETAILS

Tuesday, March 19, 2019:

It is interesting to encounter a day with so little astrological activity. The Moon rises very brightly in the night sky as she reaches out for her Full Phase which occurs just on the heels of the Spring Equinox (in the Northern Hemisphere) tomorrow night.

With the Moon in meticulous Virgo, this is a great time to work on projects that require detailed work and dedicated, orderly, efficiency. Work on completing practical chores. You may notice yourself carefully observing others and trying to fix what does not meet your high standards. Even though you feel very dedicated to improvement, remember that it is not your job to correct others. Look inward and find ways to be of service for the greater good.

Stay focused on practical activities. You may have a hard time allowing ‘good-enough’ to be good enough. Don’t allow perfectionism to stop progress. Work on projects and issues that will benefit from organization and analysis, paying particular attention to details.

 

 

SPRING EQUINOX/ LIBRA FULL MOON – AN EXPERIENCE OF WONDER

Wednesday, March 20, 2019:

What a powerhouse of a day! The morning begins with assertive Mars forming a positive trine aspect to potent Pluto. Whatever you take direct action on has amazing strength and determination behind it. Don’t underestimate the implications of where you direct your energies.

At 5:58 PM EDT the Sun enters Aries beginning the astrological New Year and the Sun’s new journey through the zodiac. On this day we experience equal time in darkness and equal time in the light. The Spring Equinox is a deeply significant time of opening the door to new potential, a time of resurrection and rebirth. Several hours after the Sun has entered Aries the Moon enters Libra and brings us directly into the culmination that is the Libra Full Moon.

Given that this Full Moon occurs on an extremely important power point (zero degrees of any cardinal sign is called the Aries Point), pay careful attention to anything that comes to light or you fully/clearly see at this time. This is a powerful combination suggesting the enormity of the change we are creating in our lives. Find the houses that hold Aries & Libra in your chart; consider what you are creating and what you are seeing with fully open eyes in the polarity between these houses. This brings each of us to a powerful turning point. Allow yourself to see and understand the shift in the balance of your life.

At this time hold your soul open for the experience of Wonder, and remember that Anything is Possible.

WHAT DO YOU VALUE?

Thursday, March 21, 2019:

This is a day brought to you by Venus as she has several significant conversations with her cohorts early in the day. Venus speaks to us of our values, beauty, cooperation, love, and even money and personal resources. What do you Value? This is a time to consider those deeply held beliefs and how those values sometimes stand in the way of your desire for action. The morning may begin with such a challenge.

Don’t get stuck in any difficulty as this dilemma is followed with a gentle opportunity to clarify your beliefs and expand the scope of your deeply held values. Oftentimes our values and beliefs go unexamined; take the opportunity now to consider deeply, what do you Value?

With the Moon in diplomatic Libra look at these issues with dispassionate objectivity. Put cooperation and an attitude of refinement ahead of other considerations. Face your life with grace and decorum, offer the gifts of Libra; the desire to please, engage in social niceties and create beauty. Find ways to offer kindness and bring beauty into the world.

 

 

TAKE A RISK FOR LOVE

Friday, March 22, 2019:

The Libra Moon makes challenging aspects to Saturn and Pluto in the early part of the day. You may struggle to see how you could possibly create the beauty and love in the world that you desire. Don’t let yourself fall into discouragement and regret. As the day moves along you will be more able to tap into the charming pleasantries of the Libra Moon. Release the challenge and seek pleasant social gatherings, take a friend to lunch, or head to a museum.

The Libra Moon offers an evening that supports romantic or diplomatic endeavors, socializing, or creating art. As you interact with others, it is good to remember that while the Moon moves through Libra we all desire companionship, love, and beauty. Please be kind to anyone you encounter. Spread goodness.

At 10:16 PM EDT the Moon enters Scorpio bringing you to a deeper emotional level. Take a risk with a partner or friend, tell a secret. Open the door to a cupboard that needs cleaning and airing out. Show trustworthiness and deep understanding to another. Bring yourself into profoundly deep connections, explore power dynamics safely and with open-hearted love.

BRING WHAT IS HIDDEN INTO THE LIGHT

Saturday, March 23, 2019:

This is an astrologically quiet day best spent in deep connection with a significant partner or highly trusted friend. With the Moon passing through Scorpio, consider how much your life has been transformed by the examination of the deeper (even the darker) side of life and love. In order to grow, you must allow parts of yourself to transform through clear seeing, destruction, and regeneration. Open your heart to passion, determination, and powerful transformative change.

In many circles, Scorpio has a bad reputation as it is a sign that has a profound need to go deep and explore the inner dark corners of the psyche. Don’t shy away, be willing to look beneath every stone and allow vulnerability. Within our vulnerability is our strength.

While the Moon is going through Scorpio, you are aware of the things that polite society would rather you kept hidden under a rug. Scorpio suggests the importance of bringing what is hidden into the light, to be excavated, and brought forth for healing.

 

 

VIEW OTHERS THROUGH A LENSE OF COMPASSION

Sunday, March 24, 2019:

We come to another day with the Moon in the Fixed Water sign of Scorpio. Fixed signs (Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, Aquarius) are stable, have a concentration of focus, and can be quite stubborn. Water Signs (Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces) are deeply sensitive and powerfully emotional. Scorpio brings profound depth and concentrates its targeted attention on the hidden emotions that many folks prefer to avoid. When the Moon is in Scorpio, we are able to feel more deeply and are able to observe our hidden emotional motivations with great clarity. This is a day to keep yourself in the company of folks you love, respect, and trust.

At 1:27 PM EDT Mercury (still retrograde) joins with Neptune suggesting an element of intellectual idealism or confusion. Use your mind, communications, and thinking in soft ways, engage in imaginative pursuits, write poetry or music. This would be a great day for contemplating your spiritual roots and how your thinking toward those core beliefs has changed over time. Open to a more mystical and compassionate view toward others.
