Astrology by Astrolore: Powerful Guidance for Daily Life

Astrology Forecast: February 4, 2019, through February 10, 2019

 

 

The cosmos is a vast living body, of which we are still parts.  The sun is a great heart whose tremors run through our smallest veins.  The moon is a great nerve center from which we quiver forever.  Who knows the power that Saturn has over us, or Venus?  But it is a vital power, rippling exquisitely through us all the time.” ~ D.H. Lawrence

 

 

AQUARIUS NEW MOON – INNOVATION & REBELLION
Monday, February 4, 2019:
 
The Aquarius New Moon occurs at 4:04 PM EST just as she forms a lovely sextile aspect to expansive happy Jupiter. This is great news for whatever innovative or humanitarian project you begin over the coming days.
If you have something important that you have considered growing and developing in the area of life indicated by the house that holds Aquarius in your chart, now is the time to begin!
If you are interested in tracking the cycles and understanding what area of your life is being impacted by the cycles of the planets, check out Astrolore’s Patreon page.
If this New Moon is transiting your 1st house it will be good to begin a new way of presenting yourself, if it is happening in your 6th, begin a new health or exercise routine, in the 9th, begin your formal study of astrology with Astrolore!
Wait and do your New Moon ritual on Tuesday or Wednesday. It is good to give a bit of time for the Moon to separate from the ‘beams of the Sun’.
 
AQUARIUS NEW MOON RITUAL
Take a moment to write down the changes you wish to begin, create, or increase for this Cycle. The Aquarius New Moon suggests that you plant a progressive, innovative seed of humanitarian impact or rebellion.
Have two candles available. Light a candle to represent yourself, as you are in 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 your intention toward yourself as you physically bring the two candles closer together.
Do this each day for two weeks until at the Full Moon you bring the candles fully together and acknowledge the result of what you have created and its ongoing growth.

 

 

EMBRACE YOUR QUIRKS
Tuesday, February 5, 2019:

 

The Moon remains in unconventional objective Aquarius throughout the day. Expect positive social interactions as no one is trying to get an upper hand. This is a great day to pay attention to folks you may not easily understand. The differences in how they view the world won’t annoy or confuse you but will more likely pique your curiosity.
Aquarius suggests the need to march to the beat of a different drummer. Allow yourself to not only engage with others who are different from you but to express the parts of yourself that are most unique. Others will have more understanding of your quirks, and if they don’t, you won’t really care.
Allow the more rebellious and innovative parts of yourself to emerge. Break out of your routines and release long-held habits that hold you back.
This is a day well suited for unusual, innovative thinking and gathering with others of like mind. With the Moon in Aquarius, you will do well to seek insights and genius ideas in the company of others.
Your emotions won’t get in the way as you are able to set them aside and view your life from a more detached viewpoint. You are more interested in the big picture and less interested in personal details of life.

REST, MEDITATE, & DREAM
Wednesday, January 6, 2019:

 

The cosmic movement and planetary impacts are relatively quiet as the Moon passes through Pisces forming only a lovely sextile aspect to Venus in the early morning hours. This is not a day to seek a great deal of activity or accomplishment.

Pisces is a Mutable Water sign offering passive, adaptable, and highly sensitive energies. This is a great time for meditation, spending time on the water, allowing yourself to be engrossed in imagination, watching movies, or making music. Enjoy any rest and sweetness you can find.

This can be a challenging time if you have things of a serious nature that must be accomplished. Do the best you can even as you find time to dream, meditate, or space out. If you are a poet, a musician, or an artist you will enjoy the fluid sense of the day.

In all your interactions with others, be aware they would also rather be resting in inspiration and dreams. Offer sweetness and sensitivity to all.

RELEASE WITH EASE
Thursday, February 7, 2019:
 
With the Moon still in Pisces, you will 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 sufferings and susceptibilities.
However, this is a day to release several things that you have been holding onto. First, as the Sun sextile Jupiter notice that a belief that you held strong even as recently as a year ago has shifted significantly. Perhaps you were unaware of the process as it occurred and now realize how easy it is to let go of that belief. It has lost its hold on you. That is worthy of celebration.
With Mercury in objective Aquarius sextile Mars in Aries, there is another thing you are able and ready to release at this time. Consider some area of your life that you have carried a great deal of anger or frustration around. Let it go. To look with true objectivity, you no longer need to hold onto that anger. Another worthy celebration.
With the Moon in Pisces, your celebration may be to write a poem, watch a movie, or drink just one extra glass of champagne. Don’t overdo it.

DIRECT ACTION

Friday, February 8, 2019:

You will feel a powerful shift from the sleepy dreaminess of the Pisces Moon to the need to take direct action when the Moon enters Aries at 9:35 AM EST.

Over the next few days, you may feel a strong need to start something new and to do so quickly. Whatever you want you want NOW. We all tend to take action more quickly when the Moon is in Aries. Watch that tendency and pay attention because fast action can easily lead to mistakes and accidents.

Your leadership, warrior, and pioneering impulses will be strong and your staying power lacking. You are likely to exhibit more courage than usual and also more arrogance and hot-headedness. Use this energy on your own in a physical manner. Go running, biking, skiing, or swimming. Whatever you do with this excess energy is best done on your own as it won’t come naturally to cooperate with others.

With the Moon in Aries, go ahead and take on a challenge, be competitive, take a risk, prove something to yourself. This is not a time for empathy or romance, better to go for a direct passionate exchange. Whatever requires direct action can be accomplished now, little will hold you back if you set Aries energy against it.

OPEN TO UNUSUAL INSIGHTS

Saturday, February 9, 2019:

The Moon continues through hotheaded courageous Aries leaving you feeling a bit worked up. Patience won’t come easily but new ideas and excitement will. At 5:53 PM EST Mercury forms a delightful sextile aspect to Uranus. This is a powerful stimulus to your thinking and will add a great deal of excitement to your conversations and interactions with others. This is a great time for new ideas, unusual communications, and creative mental activities that require innovative and original thinking. Your mind is open to unexpected flashes of insight and epiphanies. You will be more able than usual to understand complex scientific concepts including astrological theories. Your mind is curious and a bit wild. Pay attention to the most unique ideas that occur to you. Keep a pen and paper at hand to jot down your unanticipated thoughts.

 

 

 

LISTEN TO THE STILL SMALL VOICE WITHIN

Sunday, February 10, 2019:

You may notice your mind feeling a bit foggy and unclear as you start the day. Mercury the planet of thinking and communication entered elusive spacey Pisces at 5:50 AM EST. Mercury generally spends only about 3 weeks in each sign but due to a Mercury retrograde that begins on March 5th, it will remain in this fanciful surreal sign until she enters Aries in mid-April. Mercury in Pisces may not support analytical thinking but is great for free flights of intellectual fancy, writing music, poetry, or any creative activities that require imagination, inspiration, and sensitivity. This is a great time to allow yourself to listen to the still small voice within. Intuition is highly supported.

TILL THE SOIL OF YOUR HEART
Monday, January 28, 2019:
 
The Moon in the Fixed Water sign of Scorpio brings focused concentration, deep emotional depth, and connection. Embrace the potential of powerful intensity. Resist the pull toward obsessive brooding or vindictiveness. Pay attention to your instinctive motivations and make sure you are approaching others without a hidden agenda.
 
While the Moon moves through Scorpio you are more consciously aware of what you keep hidden even from yourself. Open your eyes and look into any dark corners, examine your deep mysteries and secrets. Bring light and breath into those parts of yourself that you or the culture have deemed unacceptable. Offer love and healing to what is unexamined.
 
Remember that the very best soil for your garden is that which has been composed of garbage & shit. The same goes for your deepest and most frightening depths. When you til the soil of your darkness, the best of who you are is free to grow and bring healing to yourself and others.

SPEAK THE TRUTH YOU SEE 

Tuesday, January 29, 2019:

At 9:33 AM EST the Moon enters the Mutable Fire sign of Sagittarius where she will remain until Thursday evening. As the Moon leaves Scorpio and entering Sagittarius you can expect your emotions to engage on a more positive enthusiastic note. While in Sagittarius we seek experiences that expand our understanding of the world. Release the intensity of the past few days and kick up your heels. Avoid the tendency to impulsiveness and don’t be condescending to others. Everyone has their view, make sure to keep your eyes/ ears open and allow understanding. Stepping into the shoes of another and seeing their world view will make you a better person and greatly expand your understanding.

At 9:51 PM EST the Sun and Mercury meet at 9 degrees Aquarius. This is the midpoint of the current Mercury cycle, the superior conjunction. You can think of this similarly to how you would think of a Full Moon, it is the culmination of the cycle between the Sun and Mercury that began on November 27th, 2018 at the inferior conjunction. Think about what you may have begun at that time that is now illuminated. Speak the truth as you see it.

EXPAND YOUR VIEW

Wednesday, January 30, 2019:

The Moon continues through Sagittarius encouraging ongoing exploration and understanding. You may have a clear sense of your own wisdom, but remember that not everyone sees the world through your filter. Don’t push your beliefs on others unless it is clear that your ideas are welcome and doing the work of expanding consciousness. If there is resistance, listen carefully to what the other person has to say. They have a perspective that is valid as well. You may learn something new and unexpected.

At 2:07 PM EST with Neptune square the Moon, take a nap, let your imagination run wild, listen to music, or dream. At 7:04 PM EST with the Moon joining Jupiter plan a trip, play with friends, go to a show! Invite a friend to join you, someone outside your normal circle of friends. Expand your view. This is a lovely evening for connection.

 

Are you concerned or unclear about your path ahead?  Let Astrolore help you see your life and your path forward from a perspective that will change everything.  Together we will work with your individual horoscope to explore your hopes, dreams, goals, your current path, and the reality of your life purpose. Our conversation will offer you a profoundly renewed perspective on your life and circumstances. Make your appointment today!

 

 

STABILIZE YOUR VISION

Thursday, January 31, 2019:

Saturn sextile Neptune is one of 2019s most important aspects. Due to the retrograde cycles, we encounter it once here at the end of January, a second time in mid-June, and finally, in early November, it is active (peaking and ebbing) throughout this period. To me, this speaks of practical energy coming to the service of expanding spirituality, imagination, and vision. It also suggests a time when releasing an addiction of any sort will be supported.

A door of awareness opens allowing suffering to be tackled in a new way. With Saturn’s involvement integrity, facing reality, and responsibilities offer opportunities to release suffering and develop human compassion. We do not own our suffering. We all partake in human suffering. Suffering teaches us compassion as we understand that we each suffer as we all suffer. 

At 7:48 PM EST the Moon enters Capricorn ushering in more serious emotional states for the next few days. Plan plenty of alone time over the next few days to work with steadfast focus. These days are for deepening your inner adult and developing mastery of your life.

DETERMINED ACTION
Friday, February 1, 2019:
 
Mars square Pluto (exact at 10:19 PM EST) is a major statement suggesting issues of power, determination, and possibly destruction. Where in your life do you need to develop a more powerful position or accomplish something that takes great determination? If you can identify something that began at in late April 2018 it may help you understand what action you need to take now. Some action is required now, however, do not run roughshod over others, avoid underhanded tactics, and ruthlessness. Can you allow others to stand by your side and benefit from what you create?
 
The Capricorn Moon asks that you develop deep personal integrity, life will give you an opportunity to work on that now. Over the next few days, spend time alone, contemplate the direction of your accomplishments. If life does not provide the luxury of time alone, be sure to offer kindness to those around you. That will help you to avoid pessimistic thinking.

 

 

Realize that true happiness lies within you. Waste no time and effort searching for peace and contentment and joy in the world outside. Remember that there is no happiness in having or in getting, but only in giving. Reach out. Share. Smile. Hug. Happiness is a perfume you cannot pour on others without getting a few drops on yourself.” ~ Og Mandino

 

 

GET OUT OF THAT RUT

Saturday, February 2, 2019:

The Capricorn Moon may feel heavy and uncomfortable as she joins with both serious restrictive Saturn and obsessive Pluto early in the day. It will be interesting to see how frustration may mix with the high stimulation of the trine aspect formed between Venus and Uranus at 6:41 PM EST. When Venus and Uranus speak to each other you can anticipate a desire for something new and innovative regarding love and partnership. If you and a partner have fallen into any kind of a rut, this is the time to break out of that rut. Make your Saturday night date something you have never done before, or scrap the date altogether and spend the evening on your own. There is no doubt that freedom calls to you. Your most unique unusual side wants room for full expression. Experiment with new ways of interacting with your loved ones. The same old, same old just will not satisfy.

Insisting that nothing change is likely to backfire, so allow change, even if it is unsettling, at least for the weekend. New relationships can start quickly at this time, although those started now will most likely not stand the test of time.

 

 

SPEAK UP – MAKE A CHOICE
Sunday, February 3, 2019:
 
With the Moon in Aquarius, your emotions are on a search for change and innovation. You are not satisfied with the status quo and with Mercury sextile Jupiter you have plenty to say about the direction you are moving. This is a great day to engage with interesting ideas and seek ways to communicate your most unique and unusual beliefs. Connecting, negotiating, and making plans for future adventures comes easily. It is also easy and advantageous to get excited about subjects you would like to study. Your level of curiosity is high, interest and conversation come without effort. Enjoy
 
At 5:20 PM EST Venus, the planet of love and beauty enters the serious sign of Capricorn where she will remain through this Valentine’s season, entering Aquarius on March 1st. Ultimately Venus is about what we most value in our lives. This includes not only your love relationships but also finances, resources, and all things of beauty. With Venus in Capricorn, you are able to recognize the seriousness of your choices in partnerships and in how you use your resources. You may find that you need to choose more wisely. You are willing to invest more effort into creating the partnerships that will truly support your life. It is time to consider what is required to build long-lasting love, take responsibility, and make the effort at long last.

LEO FULL MOON LUNAR ECLIPSE

Monday, January 21, 2019:

While you were sleeping the second eclipse of the month, a lunar eclipse occurred. Lunar eclipses occur at a Full Moon. During this one, you are offered a unique opportunity to reset your emotions and clear away much discomfort from recent months. What can you see clearly that has seemed beyond view until now? Open your eyes, you may be surprised at what you have missed that is now so clearly obvious.

In the early part of the day, Mars forms a square aspect to Saturn insisting that you face obstacle(s) that are holding you back from something that you desire. There are times when we must face the reality of defeat. That is how we grow, mature, and learn humility. Remember that adage when one door closes another opens. Consider in your life how many times a refection or defeat opened up more advantageous paths to follow. Make it a practice to welcome all that comes to you, reject nothing.

With the Moon in Leo, you may face challenges with dramatic self-expression by putting your ‘inner-child’ on full display. With an awareness of this tendency determine if this full expression is in your best interest and adjust your behavior accordingly.

 

 

OPEN YOUR HEART WITHOUT RESERVATION

Tuesday, January 22, 2019:

Each year lovely Venus forms a conjunction with over-the-top optimistic Jupiter (at 16 degrees Sagittarius) bringing us one of the most positive and illuminating transits of each year. Venus and Jupiter are considered the most beneficial planets and when they meet we can expect a swelling of good feelings. Because these two planets are joining together in Sagittarius (the sign that Jupiter rules) their joint goodness is increased. Think of this as the start of a new cycle of pleasure unfolding or love being magnified. Determine to set aside the past and begin a new cycle of increase in Love and/or money. Look to the house in your chart that holds Sagittarius to understand one area where you can anticipate this increase.

The Leo Moon is delighted to support pleasure, playfulness, warmth, and generosity. Don’t be afraid to look foolish as you allow yourself and encourage your friends to play. Enjoy time with the children in your life. Play, have fun, open your heart without reserve.

The Moon enters Virgo just in time for bed. In anticipating an excellent night’s sleep, take a hot shower and put clean sheets on the bed before climing in.

WORDS RUN WILD

Wednesday, January 23, 2019:

The ups and downs of this week may have your head spinning and here at mid-week you can anticipate intense excitement or anxiety. Which will you choose? Your mind will be challenged to find a way or a place to ‘land’. Don’t expect plans to go as expected. Stick with the circumstances as they present themselves, not as you wish them to be. You can’t do everything at once so do your best to slow down and take one thing at a time. You and those you encounter may have a serious case of foot-in-mouth disease. Watch how folks respond to the unpredictable things that are being said. Are you trying to get a reaction; is this a case of willful rebellion on your part? If it is, own it. Don’t pretend that it is otherwise. This is a day to look beyond the constraints of your own mind. Stir things up to try on new ideas and patterns of thinking. Don’t let anything or anyone hold down the unusual turn of your thoughts.

With the Moon in Virgo, you will be able to deal best with the wild mental activity through a steadfast dedication to practical chores. Let your mind and your words run wild as you wash the dishes and tidy your junk drawer.

 

Are you concerned or unclear about your path ahead?  Let Astrolore help you see your life and your path forward from a perspective that will change everything. Together we will work with your individual horoscope to explore your hopes, dreams, goals, your current path, and the reality of your life purpose.  Our conversation will offer you a profoundly renewed perspective on your life and circumstances.

TIME FOR INNOVATIVE STUDY 

Thursday, January 24, 2019:

For the next three weeks Mercury, the planet of ideas and thinking, will be in Aquarius. This is a great time for all innovating and objective intellectual activities. It is an ideal time to begin a serious study of astrology! Contact me. Your mind will be more open than usual to learning and absorbing complex information. You will be more willing than usual to buck the opinions of others. No matter how much you may have deferred to others in the past, no one will dictate the direction of your mind and study. What is the purpose of this new curiosity and interest? If your purpose is to be able to help others, you know you are on the right track.

What house, in your chart holds Aquarius? Your thoughts will turn to that area of your life until Mercury enters Pisces on February 10th.

Your expectations may be higher than usual during the Virgo Moon as you carefully observe yourself, your relationships, your projects, and the work that others are doing. Try to curb the tendency to be critical. Notice the edgy tone in your voice and seek to replace it with kindness and understanding.

ACTION IS REWARDED

Friday, January 25, 2019:

With the Moon in diplomatic, relationship-oriented Libra make it a point to bring pleasure, social niceties, and beauty to those you encounter. Commit yourself to seek, express, and notice gratitude, balance, and fairness everywhere you see it. The downside to Libra is the tendency to struggle with decision making. It can be a powerful challenge to take a stand when you are so interested in pleasing others. When the Moon is in Libra you are able to see both sides of an issue making it difficult to make a clear decision regarding your personal stand on the issue. Finding ways to offer kindness and bring beauty into the world is an easier goal.

As assertive Mars forms a flowing trine to expansive Jupiter, each in the sign they love the most, watch how easily action gets its reward. Mars the planet of action, physical energy and strength is in Aries, the sign of dynamic impulsive energy. He can be courageous, determined, selfish, or combative in this sign. Jupiter, the planet of confidence, idealism, and excess is in Sagittarius, the sign of philosophical understanding and expansion. Jupiter can be enthusiastic, optimistic, impatient, or opinionated in this sign. Take action with enthusiasm now. Whatever you put your mind to will grow and expand. Please be sure that kindness is a major ingredient in all that you do or your actions could become an issue of self-serving aggression. The Libra Moon helps you to avoid that pitfall.

“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

 

 

GO DANCING, STAY OUT LATE

Saturday, January 26, 2019:

With the Moon in Libra, your weekend’s focus will be on creating a safe place of pleasure for all your significant partnerships. Of course, that includes your intimate partners but also good friends, clients, and other individuals that you may desire to please.

This weekend you will not be satisfied to spend time alone, working, or with your family. You want to engage with social situations where you can test your charm and be charmed by others.

As the Moon forms a difficult square to subversive Pluto at 11:30 AM EST you may want to wait until later in the day to seek out those pleasurable social connections. The powerplay or discomfort that the Moon engaging with Pluto brings will pass quickly if you don’t engage negatively with anyone. By the evening you are ready to get dressed up and go out. This is a good date-night but you can’t expect to get home early at the Moon moves to oppose Uranus shortly after midnight. Go dancing and stay out late.

 

OBJECTIVITY VS SUBJECTIVITY

Sunday, January 27, 2019:

Both objective and subjective realities and viewpoints have there place in our lives. The problem comes when they push and pull against each other. Objectivity is fact-based and without emotion. Subjectivity is emotionally based without inclusion of concrete facts.

Each year in February there comes a day when the Scorpio Moon squares the Aquarius Sun. On the one hand, you are aware of objective intellectual reality and yet there are powerful emotions that want to acknowledge a very different subjective reality. They are pushing strongly against each other at this 3rd Quarter Square Moon Phase. Where does objective reality face off against intense subjective feelings? Consider what has been building since the New Moon (Eclipse) on January 5th and is now ready to begin the process of breaking down. What is it that you are ready to discard but don’t want to face the difficulty or consequences of saying so?

You may find that you are suspicious of the motivations of others, you will do well to set that aside and explore something you would rather not look at about yourself. Under this Scorpio Moon, if you are willing to dig deeper you can transform an issue that you have struggled with for years. Personal vulnerability and facing profound and difficult truths has the power to transform what holds you from your truest self and your best life.

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.

The Gemini Moon is void-of-course from 8:32 PM EST until she enters Cancer at 10:44 PM EST. This condition merely suggests that whatever is begun or occurs during this time will not have a significant future impact.

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.

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.

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.

 

 

“We use astrology most constructively and creatively when we gain from it a sense of what is possible for us at the highest levels of our potentialities. Seeing that, the challenges is then to keep our eyes open to life itself, to be able to respond appropriately when some event or change of circumstances…”

~ Dane Rudhyar “Astrological Aspects – a Process Oriented Approach” 1980
