Astrology is one of the earliest attempts made by man to find the order hidden behind or within the confusing and apparent chaos that exists in the world.” ~ Karen Hamaker-Zondag

 

 

EXPANDING VIEW

Monday, March 4, 2019:

The week starts slowly as the Moon continues her path through innovative forward thinking Aquarius. She is rapidly approaching the New Moon.

We consider ourselves in the ‘dark-of-the moon’ for a few days before each New Moon, suggesting more interest in quiet contemplation than we would normally expect with the Moon in Aquarius.

Going inward, contemplate where you are still ruled by social conventions, consider the areas of your life that you have not questioned. Allow yourself to open to the possibility that your view is incomplete.

At 11:31 AM EST the Moon forms an amiable sextile aspect to Jupiter allowing your beliefs to expand and enabling you to engage others in captivating conversations and connections. See the good in those around you, show the best of yourself to others.

 

 

MERCURY RETROGRADE; RE-IMAGINE & RE-INSPIRE

Tuesday, March 5, 2019:

Just as Mercury is about to enter Aries, it stops and turns back to retrace its path. Mercury will remain retrograde until March 28. Find the house that holds Pisces in your chart to better understand the area of your life that requires this revisiting of your thoughts and attention. Something here needs to be reimagined, adjusted, or considered from a different perspective. Mercury retrograde pushes us to look and consider more deeply those things we have breezed over without proper attention. Mercury will be in contact with dreamy illusory Neptune through most of March. Allow your imagination to help you understand the perspective that is needed. This is a time to reengage your imagination, inspiration, and sensitivity.

The Moon in Pisces will help you go with the flow and understand the spaciousness that will be required over the coming weeks. As much as possible, rest, retreat, find inspiration and offer inspiration to others.

THE TIME IS NOW

Wednesday, March 6, 2019:

Between Uranus entering Taurus and the Pisces New Moon, this is a powerhouse of a day.

Uranus’ movement into Taurus is probably the most anticipated astrological event of the entire year. Uranus spent time in Taurus between mid-May and early November 2018 before returning to Aries due to its retrograde movement. Uranus will remain in Taurus until 2025. Uranus moves very slowly and as it enters a new sign you know there are big changes coming in the area of the chart that holds Taurus. Uranus is the planet of freedom, liberation, and undeniable change. Where you will experience this change depends on where Taurus is in your chart.

  • If you have Aries rising the change will come in the area of finances or self-worth
  • If you have Taurus rising the change will come in how you express your personality.
  • If you have Gemini rising the change will affect your deeply hidden subconscious
  • If you have Cancer rising the change will involve the community that supports your desires
  • If you have Leo rising the shift will involve your career or reputation
  • If you have Virgo rising the change will involve travel, education, or your world view.
  • If you have Libra rising the change will involve something deeply powerful that you share with others; other people’s money, beliefs, or values
  • If you have Scorpio rising the change will profoundly impact your intimate partnerships.
  • If you have Sagittarius rising the shift will revolve around your health or work routines.
  • If you have Capricorn rising you will experience a significant change around creativity, children, or love affairs.
  • If you have Aquarius rising the change will involve your home or family.
  • If you have Pisces rising you will experience a powerful change in how you communicate, there may also be changes regarding your siblings.

Now, let’s think about the New Moon. Remember that New Moons always bring a new beginning. This New Moon is exact at 11:04 AM EST, in Pisces; think of bringing a new sensitivity and understanding into your awareness. Think also of how the understanding of human suffering brings us to deep levels of compassion.

~~Pisces New Moon Ritual ~~

Take a moment to write down the changes you wish to begin, create, or increase during this Moon Cycle. The Pisces New Moon suggests that you plant a seed of emotional sensitivity, imagination, and mystical awakening,

Have two candles available. Light a candle to represent yourself, as you are at the 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 as you imagine drawing toward yourself what you want to create as you physically bring the two candles closer together.

Do this each day for two weeks until the Full Moon (March 20) when you will bring the candles fully together and acknowledge your personal growth in this area.

 

 

MAKE KINDNESS A PRIORITY

Thursday, March 7, 2019:

The day begins with the Moon still in passive dreamy Pisces. Give yourself permission to begin the day slowly. Don’t expect too much from yourself or others unless you are working on a project that requires free-floating imagination and compassionate connections.

At 3:28 PM EST the Moon enters Aries, at that time it may feel as though you have woken from a nap. It is time to push forward to reach a destination or a goal that has evaded you over the past few days. You may have been easily taking ‘no’ for an answer or not even asking the questions that you want answers to. Now you are ready to find the chinks in the armor and push hard to gain an advantage. With the Moon in Aries, it is good to remind yourself that the needs of others are just as valid as your own. Selfishness can sneak in if you don’t keep your awareness sharp, make kindness a priority.

DRIVE AND PASSION

Friday, March 8, 2019:

I expect you are not only ready but rather impatient, for the arrival of the weekend. Go ahead and make impulsive plans to do something that takes courage, powerful drive, and independence. You are not looking for time with others but time on your own.

Aries offers great courage and bravery but does not have a high level of caution. If you engage in activities such as skydiving, rock climbing, or other courageous physical endeavors, please consciously keep your safety top of mind.

When the Moon is in Aries, you may be called to take a challenge, be competitive, take a risk, or prove something to yourself. This is a time that calls for passion.

 

 

“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

 

 

SEEKING MATURITY

Saturday, March 9, 2019:

On January 2nd, the Sun joined with Saturn beginning an annual cycle of serious stabilization. Now (Sun sextile Saturn) it is time to explore different ways of developing that stabilization and bring greater maturity and steadfast ambition to your life. No action needs to be taken now but do explore various ideas of how you will bring forth this new level of maturity. Action will need to be taken on this issue during the second week of April, for now, contemplation may bring ideas that will grow into action then.

The Moon continues its path through assertive, determined Aries. Find a powerful way to use your physical energies. If you don’t use those energies you can easily find yourself embroiled in anxiety or aggression. Go for a run, a hike, wash the car, go dancing!

This is not a great evening for romance but excellent for passion.

A HAZE OF ROMANCE

Sunday, March 10, 2019:

The romance that was not on the menu earlier this weekend is available now. By the time you begin the day, the Moon has entered sensuous, earthy Taurus, bringing attention to all of your senses. As you touch flesh or create tangible beauty you may be overwhelmed by deep reverence and appreciation.

At 12:19 PM EDT Mars forms an alluring sextile aspect to Neptune casting a haze of romance over all that you touch. You are able to attract others, captivate and enchant them or you may be on the receiving end of this powerful attraction. You are sensitive to the desires of others and are able to sooth and magnetize those you encounter. This is a great time to dance and make love. Creativity and passion can be moved through the body with great strength and charisma.

OPEN TO EXPERIENCE

Monday, February 25, 2019:

The Moon spends the bulk of the day in the intense realm of Scorpio suggesting that the week begins with deeply powerful emotions. However, you can anticipate relative ease in communicating those deep emotions and sharing your most powerful values as the Moon forms supportive aspects to Mercury and Venus in the early hours.
 
At 4:19 PM EST the Moon leaves Scorpio and moves into the lighter more idealistic arena of Sagittarius. Allow yourself to release the intensity of the past few days and embrace something exciting and for the evening. Don’t do the same thing you always do on a Monday night. Find a new path, a new friend, a new restaurant, or begin a new conversation. Watch a documentary that will open your eyes to how others experience the world. Allow your mind to experience a reality that is outside of your comfort zone. Move away from any rut you find yourself in.

The Scorpio Moon is void-of-course from 7:14 AM EST until she enters Sagittarius at 4:19 PM EST. This condition merely suggests that whatever is begun or occurs during this time will not have a significant future impact.

 

 

CHALLENGES AND OPPORTUNITIES

Tuesday, February 26, 2019:

The day begins with the Last Quarter Square aspect formed between the Sun and the Moon. The First and Last Quarter Moon always bring a bit of a crisis. Depending on where it impacts your individual chart will determine how much it impacts you personally. If you are interested in tracking the cycles and understanding what area of your life is being impacted by these cycles, please check out Astrolore’s Patreon page. Always remember that crisis implies severe challenges but also grand opportunities. At the Last Quarter Moon, you are asked to release something that no longer is in service to your path forward. By letting go you allow space for something that will support your progress. It takes courage to choose. Do not do so lightly but do not hold back once you attain clarity. Spend time on your own in silence listening to your own heart. This is the only way to gain clarity. You can not do so with the notice of the world impinging on your mind and heart. Take the future into your hands and make a wise choice that only your deepest heart knows.

With the Moon in Sagittarius don’t get stuck believing your opinions are the right and only ones worth heeding. Remember that everyone’s opinions are just that – opinions! No matter how we may feel, it is important to understand and accept that no one has a direct line to TRUTH. Consciously cultivate understanding, humor, and wisdom.

 

 

WHAT CALLS TO YOU?

Wednesday, February 27, 2019:

With the Moon in Sagittarius, you may feel a bit restless and need to get out into the world to engage with others. If you stay home, explore ideas of a trip you’d like to take or a new study that you are curious about. Consider all the ways that humans seek truth and wisdom. What calls to you?

In late July 2017, the Sun joined with Mars at 4 degrees Leo. The cycle that began at that time was about the development of courage. What action/step did you take at that time to develop grit and bravery in the house that holds Leo in your chart? Look back and consider how far you have come. With Mars sextile the Sun your contemplations are significant now and the opportunities you embrace will prepare you for the next step on developing ever deeper levels of tenacity and spunk that will be asked of you in September 2019. For now, feel the excitement available to you.

 

TAKE A STAND 

Thursday, February 28, 2019:

By the time the day begins the Moon has shed her desire for exploration and has embraced the serious business of accomplishment and ambition. You may wake with a clear awareness that it is time to put your nose to the grindstone, put a stake in the ground, and determine the direction you must move to bring you to the finish line. This is not a day for dreaming, playing, or even creative thinking. This is a day to make whatever adjustments are necessary in order to climb the mountain of accomplishment that you have determined is yours to climb. If you have been drifting or wasting your time or talents, now is the time to get clear and begin to shift course. Take a stand; one decision, one step forward can set you on the correct path.

SEEKING FREEDOM

Friday, March 1, 2019:

You may experience a powerful desire for freedom and excitement in love at this time. You may have little patience with rules, restrictions, and controls. If you have been feeling constrained make sure to schedule time on your own to prevent your impatience from slipping into destructive behavior. In late March 2018 Venus, the planet of love and beauty made an intimate connection with Uranus, the planet which emphasizes intensification and change. Thus began a cycle of tension and excess focused on relationships, love, and personal values. At this point in the cycle (Venus last quarter square Uranus) notice what is working and what is not. Where do you need to release certain expectations? A decision you make now will bring you to the next cycle of change and innovation in relationships that will begin in mid-May as Venus and Uranus join once again at 3 degrees Taurus.

At 11:45 AM EST Venus enters Aquarius (where it will remain until March 26th) reflecting similar issues of freedom, independence, and innovation in partnership and love.

With the Moon in Capricorn connecting with Saturn and Pluto, you will be reminded that freedom enacts a price. Facing both the reality of that price and the power available if you do so, will bring much depth to the day. It will be important to pay attention to what others are dealing with as well. Getting out of your narrow perspective and truly understanding the world view and outlook of others will help greatly.

 

 

ANTICIPATE A SHIFT MID-DAY

Saturday, March 2, 2019:

The day begins on a serious note as you are reminded that your life is serious business, you must attain certain achievements in order to feel good about yourself. Get up early with accomplishment in mind; determine exactly what you want to get done and plan to shift focus by midafternoon.

At 2:07 PM EST the Moon will no longer so seamlessly support your ambitions as she leaves Capricorn behind to enter Aquarius. The Aquarius Moon joins with Venus newly in this innovative unconventional sign asking that you open your eyes more fully to ways of thinking and viewing the world that is not so familiar to you. Ask questions and listen to the opinions and view of those who sit on the other side of the aisle. We learn very little when we only explore in the realm with those who think and live as we do. Explore outside of all the boxes that feel true and safe for you. Open your mind to others’ views, ideas, and perspectives.

The Capricorn Moon is void-of-course from 1:48 PM EST until she enters Aquarius at 2:07 PM EST. This condition merely suggests that whatever is begun or occurs during this time will not have a significant future impact.

 

 

SHARE AND LISTEN

Sunday, March 3, 2019:

With the Moon moving through Aquarius, continue the theme of reaching for a greater understanding of the world-view that others hold. Allow yourself to engage with others who are different from you even as you express the parts of yourself that are most unique. Others will have more understanding of your quirks, and yet it will matter less to you if they do not. Struggle into an understanding of the way others think, it will open you to greater humanitarian sympathy and understanding.

Spend the day in social interactions. Watch as rebellion and spontaneity emerge in yourself and others. Bring folks together to share in ideas, share and listen. Break out of routines or ruts that hold you back. You can break bad habits most easily under the influence of the objective Aquarius Moon. Break free.

 

HEADS UP!

Next Tuesday (March 5th) Mercury will be turning retrograde. Start making your list of all the things that have been left undone over that past few months since the last Mercury retrograde (late November – early December). That list is what you will be working on, if there are projects that you know you will need to work on over the duration of Mercury’s retrograde (March 5 – March 28) get a start on them now, even a preliminary beginning of a project beforehand will enable you to continue working on it during the retrograde without issue. Do be sure to back up your computer and have your car serviced this week.

PISCES SEASON BRINGS DEEP SENSITIVITY

Monday, February 18, 2019:

The week begins with much astrological activity. You can anticipate a bit of excitement along with the need to plant a seed of seriousness in partnerships or love. The Sun forms a delightful sextile aspect to Uranus just before it enters Pisces bringing a sharp sense of excitement to your dreams and imagination. Significant changes are on the horizon that you are just beginning to get a glimmer of. With Venus conjunct Saturn you will also be offered an opportunity to stabilize your most dearly held values regarding love and money.

Excitement, imagination, ambition, and love join forces to move you into the Pisces Season. At 6:03 PM EST the Sun enters this Mutable Water sign, opening each of us to themes of sensitivity, compassion, and inspiration. While the Sun is in Pisces we encounter deep imagination and are motivated by selflessness, empathy, and intangible depths of sensitivity. These coming weeks are good for connecting with an elusive dream, taking up meditation, writing poetry, listening to music and allowing yourself to transcend the mundane world. It may be a challenge to keep the solid ground under your feet, keep your most grounded friends nearby to assist you. If you are a very grounded person be prepared to help others hold steady.

With the Moon still in Leo allow a full range of playful imagination. Go ahead and bring some fun into the day.

 
 

VIRGO FULL MOON: ILLUMINATION OF EFFORT

Tuesday, February 19, 2019:

Before the day really begins Mercury, the planet of thought and communication joins with Neptune bringing a strong focus to imagination, inspiration, and mystical thought patterns.

Reality will catch up with you as the very practical Virgo Full Moon reaches peak illumination at 10:53 AM EST. What is illuminated during a Full Moon depends on several things. First, consider what sign the Moon is in and what house holds it in your horoscope. This full Moon is in the industrious, analytical sign of Virgo. Where has your focus been over the past two weeks regarding issues of effort, work, and dedication? The results of your efforts should be clear now, showing you those areas that need adjustment and/or attention. The trine aspect from the Moon to Mars in consistent reliable Taurus suggests the availability of steadfast energy to push those efforts forward. Go ahead and pat yourself on the back for efforts well done and take the extra step of forming a plan for analysis and improvement moving forward.

With a lovely sextile aspect from Mercury to Saturn before bedtime, your mind leaves all vestiges of restlessness and confusion behind and heads toward sleep on solid ground.

BRING PRACTICAL EFFORT TO ELUSIVE ENDEAVORS

Wednesday, February 20, 2019:

The passive sensitivity that the Pisces Sun highlights over the coming weeks is focalized as the Moon speaks with Neptune at 10:23 AM EST. Allow yourself to flow between a variety of emotional states as the perfectionistic Virgo Moon engages in conversations with nearly all the planets throughout the day.

With the Moon in Virgo, you may notice yourself drawn to practical activities or to a practical approach to more elusive endeavors. You may find yourself organizing and analyzing everything you do. It may be difficult for ‘good-enough’ to be good enough. Don’t allow a perceived need for perfection to stop your progress toward bringing your dreams to reality. Work on projects and tasks that will benefit from paying particular attention to details. You may seriously want to do the simple tasks of daily life, wash and fold the laundry, dust your bookshelves, clean out a junk drawer. While you are at it read Maria Kondo’s book: The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up.

LET YOURSELF OFF THE HOOK

Thursday, February 21, 2019:

Following several days of analysis and working on the details of your life and any projects you are engaged with, you are now ready to turn your attention to good friends, partners, and socialization. The Moon enters diplomatic, relationship-oriented Libra at 9:18 AM EST. As the Moon gently flows through this charming, pleasant sign keep in mind that Libra is an Air sign which is fundamentally intellectual. What you seek are intellectual companions, friends, and social interactions. Enjoy cultural activities, go to a museum, a concert, or a small gathering with folks that stimulate your mind. It may be challenging to feel confident in your own opinions, take a stand, be decisive, or speak. Let yourself off the hook. Enjoy listening to others and let yourself see and understand every side of an issue. There is always another day to make a decision, take action, or speak up.

PLANT A SEED TO DEEPEN LOVE

Friday, February 22, 2019:

As the weekend approaches you may be asked to consider exactly how much of your most unusual beliefs and spiritual understanding to share with others. Make sure you are talking with folks who are on a similar path of understanding before sharing too much with too much innocent enthusiasm. You could find yourself saying more than the person you are engaging with can accept or even understand.

With the Moon in Libra, you long for social niceties, beauty, and balance in your environment. You may hope to create an evening of lovely romance, however, there is likely to be more intensity in the connection than you may anticipate. This is about far more than sweetness and beauty. At 10:52 PM EST Venus conjunct Pluto begins a cycle of great depth, intensification of Love, and the development of an empowered partnership. Spend the upcoming weekend developing a firm, solid, lasting, profound connection with someone you love. If you are alone or without a truly significant partnership, spend the weekend understanding and developing your personal deep values.

 
 

FIND A NEW FRAME FOR AN OLD STORY

Saturday, February 23, 2019:

Consider the story you are telling or the picture you are painting; how does that story support the new cycle of love that is beginning? Listen to how you have been telling an old story, change your perspective and tell it from your new outlook. You may be surprised to learn how that simple act will change your path forward. The stories you tell now have the power to magnify your connection to love and increase your understanding of your most significant personal values.

At 10:57 AM EST the Moon enters the deep waters of Scorpio bringing your attention to powerful buried emotions. You may find yourself willing to take a personal risk by allowing a trusted friend or partner to touch you more acutely than usual. This is a time to get serious with a loved one or spend time alone. Trying to connect on a surface level will leave you both dissatisfied and resentful.

EMPOWERMENT AND HEALING

Sunday, February 24, 2019:

With the Moon passing through Scorpio, you are naturally inclined to examine the profound, somewhat frightening side of life and love. You know that in order to grow, at times you must allow devastation to leave the ground bare for new growth. Think about how whole forests are burned to make space for the new forest to grow refreshed.

Scorpio focuses attention on the hidden emotions that most folks prefer to avoid. When the Moon is in Scorpio, we are able to feel more deeply and observe our hidden emotional motivations with clarity.

Under this Moon, you may be able to get to a deep understanding of an issue that has dogged you for years. Digging into concealed nooks and crannies of your mind and facing profound and difficult hidden truths has the power to transform your life. Do your best to uncover what is calling for empowerment and healing.

 
 

For all its complexity, however, astrology remains fundamentally simple. It offers a time-honored system of symbols that sum up key aspects of human life while providing profound insights and practical guidance.” ~Anne M. Nordhaus-Bike

There is something out there. Astrology is like a game of chess with an invisible partner. We set out the board and the rules, make a move, and then find that the pieces are moving, as if by an invisible hand.” ~ Noel Tyl

 

 

FOCUS ON LOYALTY AND CONNECTION

Monday, February 11, 2019:

With the Moon in sensual slow moving Taurus, you are called to experience yourself and your life fully through your senses. This is a day to take things slowly, indulge your senses with yummy food, powerful physical contact, and great music. Get a massage, bring your partner to dinner and a museum, bring flowers into your home.

When the Moon is in stable Taurus your heart settles down and your desires focus on comfort, connection, loyalty, and security.

You are likely to be resistant to change, wanting to create comfort and seek a relaxed escape from the chaos that seems to be a constant in our culture and busy lives.

 

 

CHOOSE WELL

Tuesday, February 12, 2019:

The day continues with the steadfast Taurus Moon allowing a slow sensual awareness to permeate the day. Dane Rudhyar called the First and Last Quarter Moon times of crisis. Keep in mind that crisis implies not only difficulties but opportunities as well. These are the times when we take the future into our own hands and make choices that move our lives in one direction or another. Make a decision now that will lead you in a direction of loyalty and commitment. This is a time when your actions turn you toward or away from your highest expression. Choose well with eyes wide open.

FLASHES OF INSIGHT

Wednesday, February 13, 2019:

The day begins with a conjunction from assertive Mars to wildly unconventional Uranus occurring in the very last degree of Aries. This is the final big bell of Uranus’ long stretch in Aries where it has been since 2011. What have you learned about taking direct action in the house that holds Aries in your chart?

If you are interested in tracking the cycles and understanding what area of your life is being impacted by these cycles, please check out Astrolore’s Patreon page.

Mars conjunct Uranus represents the beginning of a cycle of demanding change, excitement, and the expression of your unique self regardless of the opinions of others. You need to step forth, welcome change and excitement, and break free from some situation in your life that is restricting your path forward.

You may be tempted to take serious risks, to make a sudden change, to jump first and ask questions later. Watch that tendency carefully. Sit with it for a few days. Do not be too reckless or hasty. In a few days time, you will have more clarity. Pay attention to flashes of insight and experiment with what is new. Allow yourself to consider an unexpected and more innovative approach to sexuality and passion.

The Gemini Moon encourages communication and curiosity. You may hear or tell stories that could change your entire trajectory of the coming years. Pay attention to any action that is required of you, watch what unfolds from here.

DELIBERATE RELIABLE ACTION

Thursday, February 14, 2019:

Mars, the planet of direct action and self-determination has been in its own sign of impulsive Aries since the start of 2019. Now as he leaves that hot action-oriented sign behind and enters the patient stable sign of Taurus you can expect a significant change in how you approach your desired accomplishments. Mars is leading you on the way that Uranus will follow in the Spring. Look to the house that holds Taurus in your chart for greater understanding. The deliberate reliable action you take in the coming weeks will open into a groundswell in this area of your life over the coming months.

Mars in Taurus puts strength, reliability, and perseverance into your actions; powerful upheaval and excitement will follow. You are resolute in what you are building. You won’t take quick action but deliberate dependability and consistency will build a strong and powerful foundation.

Focused determination and powerful steadfast action taken over the coming weeks will produce undeniable results.

The Moon continues through Gemini keeping your mind and communications activities and quick even as your actions are slowing down.

 

 

PLAN FOR COMFORT

Friday, February 15, 2019:

You should be able to settle in for a relatively calm day as you prepare for the upcoming weekend. The Moon enters Cancer at 9:02 AM EST setting the emotional tone for the coming few days. Because the Moon is the ruling planet of Cancer you can expect your emotions to seek inward sensitivity and protective nurturing. Plan to spend time with your family and dearest loved ones.

Make sure you have healthy emotional outlets and that you don’t give so much of yourself that you shut down your own needs or end up feeling resentful.

Your home may require attention and this is a good weekend for all domestic activities. Allow yourself to reach for comfort food, spend time cooking, eating and reminiscing about the past.

“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

 

 

SUPPORT AND COMFORT

Saturday, February 16, 2019:

With the Moon moving through the tender emotional realm of Cancer you can expect to be highly influenced by the emotional state of those around you and the physical environment you find yourself in. Chose your environment and companions consciously. If you are able to maintain objectivity in the face of others’ difficulties offer help and nurture, if you are needy yourself right now, place yourself in the company of those who will support and comfort you. Discrimination is important today.

Offer practical protection, kindness, and nurturing to others. Cook for your family and loved ones. While you do so, you must also keep yourself crystal clear about what sensitivities are your own and what you may be picking up from others. It is bound to be a moody day. Burn some sage, clear your space and your heart from negativity.

 

 

SEEK ACTIVE EXPRESSION

Sunday, February 17, 2019:

The day begins with the energy of Venus sextile Neptune. This accentuates the moodiness of the Cancer Moon and you may feel overly soft, sensitive with an inspired mystical edge.

At 10:21 AM EST the Moon enters Leo and for the first time in several days, you may want to get out of the house and join with friends for an afternoon of creative playfulness. Find an active release for this firey energy. Bring your dramatic self-expression into full view. Find children or childlike friends to engage with. Enjoy your most appreciative and expressive friends. If you open to this playful side of life, you will be ready to go back to work on Monday with a smile on your face.

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.
