Astrology by Astrolore: Powerful Guidance for Daily Life (September 30, 2019 – October 6, 2019)

Astrolore’s Weekly Astrology Weather

September 30, 2019, through October 6, 2019

 

 

 

The time between the New Moon (Saturday, September 28th) and the Full Moon (October 13th) is a time of opening, expanding, and growing awareness. These times each month are good for beginning new projects, new connections, new understanding, and new ways of thinking and being.

…..

It is clear what has begun moving forward in US politics since Saturn turned direct on September 18th. Regardless of which side of the cultural divide you are on, the movement is clear.

This week Pluto, the planet of power, coercion, and obsession, also turns direct after being retrograde since late April 2019.*

Both Saturn and Pluto are moving through Capricorn, the sign of business, government, and the patriarchy. These are very slow-moving planets. Saturn has been in Capricorn since late December 2017, Pluto since 2008.

Think about what this could portend as we move toward the conjunction of these two planets (structure meets power) in January 2020. The US government and the US cultural divide are tied together on a collision track.

Hope requires a commitment to transformation. We must bring ourselves and our leaders back to honor, integrity, kindness, and love.

Regarding your personal life, look to the house that holds Capricorn. This house is the same area of your life we talked about last week when Saturn turned direct. If you see a collision coming, make sure you are building integrity and love in this area. It may not be easy but this work is what you need to commit to, THE MOST important thing.

*It is interesting to note that both Saturn and Pluto had been retrograde since late April 2019. It brings up questions about what exactly went underground at that time.

The last time Saturn and Pluto joined together was in late 1982, before that 1947, before that 1915. Look to the circumstances of big power during those years for hints of recurring themes.

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

 

RESPECT & UNCONDITIONAL KINDNESS

Monday, September 30, 2019

Today’s Moon requires that you face your life direction with passion and intensity. With the Moon in Scorpio, the general theme of the day is to dig below the surface. Now is the time to follow lines of intensity to understand the power and control hidden beneath the surface. It is important to avoid manipulation and suspicion in the pursuit of truth. Find a balance point between digging too deeply into dark corners and avoiding those corners altogether. Your emotions are powerful today and can lead you to passionate encounters.

At 2:55 PM EDT, the Moon opposes Uranus, perhaps bringing emotional upset and turmoil. Avoid engaging your automatic impulsive reactions to allow this upset to pass quickly. Don’t make important decisions this afternoon as you are easily distracted by shiny things that call to you. Do allow yourself to see a new perspective. Engage your curiosity about something you believe is a ‘given’. Allow yourself to step into the shoes of someone you don’t agree with. Show respect and unconditional kindness.

…..

The Libra Moon is void-of-course until she enters Scorpio at 5:42 AM EDT. This condition suggests that what occurs during this time will not have a significant impact.

 

 

TAKE A STAND FOR LOVE

Tuesday, October 1, 2019

The Scorpio Moon continues to push your emotions into the exploration of hidden depths. This intensity may feel powerful and compelling or brooding and darkly reflective. Today is not a light-hearted day. What do you want to get to the bottom of? Consider that as you dig beneath the surface.

It is more than the Moon placement that brings this depth and intensity. Venus in Libra is pushing against the power of Pluto with a difficult square aspect today. Personal values of cooperation and love challenge the powers that be. You can feel it in the air. Something must be released now in order to begin a healthy cycle of empowered Love in mid-December.

In today’s aspect, along with Saturn and Pluto’s upcoming conjunction, I see the face of Greta Thunberg. Significantly, Greta has Sun, Moon, and Mercury in Capricorn.

How and where in your life are you standing for love, cooperation, and interdependence against forces of power and greed? Notice how this theme is playing out all around you. Commit to making the world a better place with kindness and connection.

 

LOOK FOR ADVENTURE

Wednesday, October 2, 2019

A bit of the intensity of yesterday may linger, but generally, you can expect today to be lighter and easier than yesterday. The Moon enters Sagittarius at 7:45 AM just in time to bring an optimistic and positive vibe to the day.

In contrast to the past few days, you will look outside of yourself to expand your view of the world by experiencing or learning something new.

Gather a few friends and look for an adventure that will take you outside your normal routines. Go in search of a good time; bring humor and spontaneity along.

…..

The Scorpio Moon is void-of-course from 5:47 AM EDT until she enters Sagittarius at 7:45 AM EDT. This condition suggests that what occurs during this time will not have a significant impact.

 

 

SECRETS REVEALED

Thursday, October 3, 2019

Tiny, powerful Pluto turns direct today after being retrograde since late April. This is as intense as it sounds and there is much to consider.

The impact will be powerful if you have personal planets between 19 – 22 degrees of Cardinal signs. The cardinal signs are Aries, Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn. If this is the case, contact me or another experienced authentic astrologer for a consultation.

From a global and cultural perspective, the importance here is profound. We are officially taking the final steps to the major Saturn- Pluto conjunction we have been waiting for. This conjunction is exact on January 13, 2020. There will be no more hesitation, delay, postponement, or deferment. We are heading to the brink of what has been building. This is a remarkable time in history. The last time there was a conjunction between Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn was in 1518 (no, that is not a typo.) An interesting historical fact from that year is that the African slave trade began. Here we have come full circle as we face the rampant systemic racism that plagues our culture and subordinates so many of our friends and neighbors. Have we learned enough since 1518 to expunge the muck surrounding that stain on humanity? Don’t turn away, this is a personal job for each of us.

Watch for personal and collective secrets to be revealed and unspoken desires to rise to the surface.

Adding to this intensity, Mercury enters Scorpio today. This aspect supports your ability and willingness to look into the dark basement of your own heart as well as the darkness in society. Secrets are being exposed. Mercury will remain in Scorpio until December 9th due to a retrograde cycle which keeps it in one sign (Scorpio) longer than usual.

If you have secrets of your own, particularly if they involve the house that Capricorn holds in your chart, it is best to bring them to the light yourself. Do not wait for an unplanned revelation that will likely occur in early 2020.

 

 

HONESTY, KINDNESS, & ACTION

Friday, October 4, 2019

Mars, the planet of action and force, entered Libra, the sign of diplomacy. This sounds like an awkward combination and it is. When Mars is in Libra we may try to use charm to go after what requires a sledgehammer. We may become so busy trying to respond to both sides of an issue that we are unable to have much of an impact on anything. It will be best to take full responsibility for your actions as you balance your needs with the needs of others. Practice honesty and directness even in the face of being seen as less than ‘nice’. Mars remains in Libra until November 19th.

Do your best to approach others with honesty.  Staunchly avoid the tendency toward passive-aggressiveness, the negative expression of this Mars placement.

At 1:44 PM EDT, the Moon enters Capricorn. This shift is likely to focus your attention on the more serious aspects of your life. Your career, finance, and success goals come to the forefront of your attention. You can take important steps forward in the service of those goals. Today is not a friendly or emotional day but one from which you can squeeze a great deal of accomplishment.

…..

The Sagittarius Moon is void-of-course from 3:34 AM EDT until she enters Capricorn at 1:44 PM EDT. This condition suggests that what occurs during this time will not have a significant impact.

 

 

PREPARE FOR WINTER – SUPPORT LOVE

Saturday, October 5, 2019

This weekend is a serious one, not a time that you’ll be interested in parties or social activities. If there is a weekend for work, this is it. Here in the Northern Hemisphere, we are heading into the cold season. This is a great weekend to focus on preparations for winter. Complete the work in your garden to settle it down for the coming year. Cut down perennials and pull up annuals. Rake the lawn. Indoors there is plenty to do as well. Seal any drafts, service your furnace, clean out your gutters, and store your deck furniture. At the end of the day, you will feel great about all that you have accomplished.

At 12:48 PM EDT, the Moon reaches its First Quarter Phase. This phase of the Moon implies both difficulties and opportunities. Pay attention to interpersonal issues that arise and find the opportunity within that. Now is a time when your choices and decisions will move your life in one direction or another.

Consider the seed you planted on September 28th at the Libra New Moon. Take an action today in support of moving the desire of that seed forward. If you planted a seed of Love for the New Moon, work with your partner as you build or support your life together. As you clean out the garden, begin the plan for the garden you will plant next year. Bring great pleasure to work and effort.

 

 

LIFE IS SERIOUS BUSINESS

Sunday, October 6, 2019

The Moon continues through Capricorn, offering another day for the work you began yesterday. If you stick to your efforts you will start next week feeling satisfied with your accomplishments. Achievement and manifestation of success are what motivates you today. You are resourceful and want to use every minute and all your energy to accomplish your goals.

This may not be a particularly joyful or fun day but it can be extremely productive.

You are more aware than usual of the passage of time and the reality of its limits. Focus on practical undertakings with long term success in mind. Determine to focus on your most realistic goals today.

Shortly before midnight, the Moon enters Aquarius. You will be starting the work-week with the energy of innovation and excitement.

…..

The Capricorn Moon is void-of-course from 7:26 PM EDT until she enters Aquarius at 11:43 PM EDT. This condition suggests that what occurs during this time will not have a significant impact.

…………

 

* In these weekly reports, I am exploring the major aspects formed by transit between the planets. I do not consider every aspect that the Moon makes each day as they can be numerous and are often fleeting moods. I will consider the final major aspect formed by the Moon prior to its VOC* time, as that aspect holds its influence throughout the VOC*.

The aspects under consideration: conjunctions, sextiles, squares, trines, and oppositions.

The planets I work with: Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto.

 

Astrology by Astrolore: Powerful Guidance for Daily Life (August 26 – September 1, 2019)

Astrolore’s Weekly Astrology Weather: August 26, 2019, through September 1, 2019

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

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

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

A RISK FOR LOVE OR BEAUTY

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

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

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

Tuesday, August 27, 2019

WEARING YOUR HEART ON YOUR SLEEVE

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

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

A RUSH OF ADRENALINE

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

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

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

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

FLASHES OF INSIGHT

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

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

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

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

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

BALANCE YOUR QUIRKS WITH PRACTICALITY – VIRGO NEW MOON

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

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

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

Saturday, August 31, 2019

A HOLIDAY OF WORK AND EFFORT – LABOR DAY

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

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

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

WILD THOUGHTS BALANCE STABLE LOVE

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

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

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

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.

__________________________________

The Pisces Moon is void-of-course from 2:09 PM EST until she enters Aries at 3:28 PM EST. This condition merely suggests that whatever is begun or occurs during this time will not have a significant future impact.

 

 

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.

__________________________________

The Aries Moon is void-of-course from 12:14 PM EST until she enters Taurus at 3:10 AM EDT on Sunday morning. This condition merely suggests that whatever is begun or occurs during this time will not have a significant future impact.

 

 

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.

 

 

Understand that western astrology is based on the tropical zodiac system.The tropical zodiac is a metaphorical, season-based system that aligns the vernal equinox with the first degree of Aries, the first sign of the zodiac. At the Spring Equinox the Sun enters the sign of Aries.

Astrolore’s weekly weather: June 30, 2014 through July 6, 2014

Carl-Spitzweg-The-attic-Oil-Painting

 

This week is about moving forward. On Monday Mercury will turn direct at 24° Gemini, enabling us to finally take our first steps forward following all the cleanup we’ve been doing for the past three weeks. Throughout the course of the week the Moon moves through Leo, Virgo, Libra, and ends the week in Scorpio. We seek fun, to be of service, to partner diplomatically, and to make contact on deep emotional levels.

 

What have you been waiting for these past three weeks? You are now ready to take the first steps forward.

 

 
 

Monday, June 30, 2014:

 

The week begins with the Moon in playful, expressive Leo.

 

On Monday you would love to play hooky and have an extra day off from work. The afternoon may be challenging as the Moon trines Uranus and sextiles Mars, encouraging you to take action on your most unusual plans. You long for space, freedom, and emotional independence. And yet, even as you seek freedom, you feel pulled back by a sense of responsibility, guilt, and resistance (Moon square Saturn). It is easy to project the difficulty of this onto someone else. Take personal responsibility for the excitement and the hard work of your situation.

 

This may present us with the desire to fight for change and the desire to strongly resist change. Yes, the two can coexist. Allow both to be the reality of your situation. No decision needs to be made at this time. Cultivate the ability to hold two opposing ideas at the same time. With so many contradictory opinions, it is a good idea to learn to find stability, excitement, and comfort in this balance.

 
 

Tuesday, July 1, 2014:

 

It is a relief to finally come to this day! After three weeks of moving backwards (our perception), Mercury finally turns direct at 8:49 AM EDT. It will take a few days for Mercury to get up to speed. In the meantime you are grateful to be moving forward.

 

At 6AM EDT, following a sextile to Mercury, the Moon goes VOC* in Leo until she enters Virgo at 5:24 PM EDT. This provides you with the entire day of Moon VOC*. My favorite thing to do when the Moon is VOC* is to spend it in a coffee shop with a good book! You may not have that luxury. However, don’t work on your most important projects on Tuesday. Spend the day completing routine tasks. It will be a few days before Mercury gets to full speed. Save your more important activities for this evening or later in the week.

Wednesday, July 2, 2014:

 

Don’t be surprised if you wake up Wednesday morning feeling overly sensitive and confused about the direction of your day. The Moon is in Virgo, opposing Neptune at 8:30 AM EDT.

 

The best way to approach this is to simply get out of your own way and find where you can be of help to others. If you focus your energies on selfish pursuits you will likely struggle and lose your way. Bring humility and discrimination to all your projects and interactions with others. Focus on precision and efficiency in all that you do. Wednesday evening as the Virgo Moon trines Pluto would be a great time to tackle a meticulous project that requires analytical perfection.

 

Wednesday will probably not be a day of excitement but can be a day of practical productivity and quiet time shared with others.

 
 

Thursday, July 3, 2014:

 

Thursday’s energies are similar to Wednesday’s, a productive day good for detail-oriented work and service to others. However, as we move toward evening, Friday’s early morning opposition between Sun and Pluto is bound to begin making itself known. If you have planets at 12° of Cardinal signs (Aries, Cancer, Libra, Capricorn), pay attention. Where in your life are you under the thumb of someone else’s power or coercion? Over the next 24 hours keep your eyes open to those things you may be trying to keep hidden, from yourself or others.

 
 

Friday, July 4, 2014:

 

Friday offers an opportunity to see deep clarity on your path. At 4:02AM EDT Sun opposes Pluto. Get out your journal and let’s take a look at where this cycle began. Actually, you probably won’t need your journal for this one. The cycle began when Sun conjuncted Pluto on January 1, 2014. That should be an easy day to remember! A new cycle regarding your personal empowerment began at that time. Whatever began on January 1 now has the ability to release the creative energy that has built since that time. Where have you been building power and empowerment? What transformation began that you now see the full picture of? Since January you have been building, purifying, and transcending. How far have you come? What have the results been? Powerful forces have created major change in your life. New perspectives are confirmed!

 

The Moon is in Libra all day offering diplomacy to the situation.

 
 

Saturday, July 5, 2014:

 

On Saturday, the Moon is in Libra making stressful aspects to Pluto, Sun, Uranus, and Mars. You may want to partner with someone and yet the energies are not making it easy. Your communications could be easily misinterpreted. Early morning brings us to the first quarter square of the Moon. Last Friday, June 27th was a New Moon in Cancer. At that time you planted seeds of domestic desire. Whatever new dynamic you are creating in your domestic situation requires a step forward. Consider what you want to change in the situation and take an action on Saturday.

 
 

Sunday, July 6, 2014:

 

When you awake on Sunday, I suspect you will feel an immediate relief after Saturday’s intensity. Take yourself, a friend, or your family out for brunch! Do something special to enjoy the early part of this day.

 

At 11:31AM EDT, following a connection with Jupiter, the Moon goes VOC* in Libra.

 

At 3:34PM EDT the Moon (the symbol of your deepest needs) enters Scorpio. You would benefit from spending time alone in deep contemplation in the afternoon or evening.

* In these weekly reports I am exploring the major aspects formed by transit between the planets. I do not consider every aspect that the Moon makes each day as they can be numerous and are often fleeting moods. I will consider the final major aspect formed by the Moon prior to it’s VOC time, as that aspect holds it’s influence throughout the VOC*
The Aspects I consider: Conjunctions, Sextiles, Squares, Trines, and Oppositions
The Planets I am working with: Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto.
*VOC (void of course) refers to the period of time between the final aspect that the Moon makes while in one sign until she enters the next sign. This can consist of several minutes or many hours. These periods are best handled with little expectation of accomplishment; times ideally suited for rest and contemplation.

Astrolore’s weekly weather: June 23, 2014 through June 29, 2014

Lady with a Monkey by Roger Fry

 

 

We start the week with an inward focus as we move into the darkest phase of the Moon.

 

The week begins with both the Moon and Venus in Taurus, but not for long. Monday morning Venus leaves behind the steadfastness of Taurus to enter the curious activity of Gemini.

 

Tuesday morning the Moon follows Venus into Gemini as well. Venus in Taurus will assist us in grounding into the moment.

 

On Wednesday we may encounter something that surprises or shocks us. Perhaps we thought we had a firm hold on something that is less solid than we expected. Again you will want to watch your levels of assertiveness and anger. If you feel frustrated or angry do not use sharp tools and do not drive.

 

Thursday brings us to the New Moon at 5° of Cancer. Pay attention to the opportunity to plant some seeds of domestic love. This begins a cycle that will determine much of our domestic situation and comfort over the coming months.

 

Sunday ends the week on an interesting note as we notice the flow of fantasy and dreams and the places where our deeper values block those dreams. There are no decisions that need to be made. The important thing is to be kind to yourself and to those who are involved in your current situation.

 

Are you tired of trying to make sense of the mixed messages in your mind?

Monday, June 23, 2014:

 

The week begins with an emotional hangover as we are confronted with the realities of Monday morning following the wonderfully open and engaging weekend.

 

Initially it may feel difficult to face the week, but as the day moves on it becomes easier and more interesting! As Venus enters Gemini we become very busy and our social lives amp up! Be careful not to overbook yourself. Remember you still need time to care for yourself.

 

Summer is so short here in Vermont, it is helpful to have Venus in Gemini encouraging us to make the connections that will support our growth and movement forward.

 

The Moon is in Taurus all day, going VOC at 9:48PM EDT following a sextile to Jupiter. I would anticipate a simple pleasurable evening.

 
 

Tuesday, June 24, 2014:

 

At 7:06 AM EDT the Moon leaves Taurus behind and enters Gemini. Several hours later the Moon connects with Venus. Because the Moon circles the entire zodiac each month, she makes contact rapidly with all the planets. When the Moon touches other planets it is not a long-term effect but one that is noticeable in our day-to-day lives. When the Moon and Venus come together this morning in Gemini we feel encouraged to socialize and to communicate openly, particularly in our relationships with women.

 

Early tomorrow morning Mars opposes Uranus. Watch carefully any edginess that is lurking around the edges; it is apt to increase and show its face strongly for the next 24 hours. Awareness of your own energy and the energy of those around you is your greatest gift at this time.

Wednesday, June 25, 2014:

 

Wednesday may be the wildcard of the week. We awake to the energy of Mars opposing Uranus. On March 22, 2013 the cycle between Mars and Uranus began at 8° Aries. Think about what may have begun at that time in your life. When we bring Mars and Uranus together we are thinking about revolution, decisive action, sexual excitement, and/or a tightly wound nervous system. Mars and Uranus have a reputation for being accident-prone. As a rule this problem can be solved by simply slowing down and not moving quickly forward if we are aggravated, frustrated, or angry. The point we are at in this cycle now brings us to a full expression of the creative energy that has been building since March 2013. Please share with us any awareness is that you may have of this cycle. We learn so much as we share with each other.

 

The Moon is in Gemini throughout the day making aspects that suggest that on the surface this is an easy day of fun, play, communication, and friends.

 
 

Thursday, June 26, 2014:

 

Thursday begins with the Moon and Mercury coming together in Gemini. Following the conjunction between them at 7:56AM EDT, the Moon goes VOC until she enters Cancer at 5:05PM EDT. It’s interesting to have a day with Moon and Mercury together in Gemini and yet with the Moon VOC all day. This is a great day for the mind — the mind is active, the mind is clear — and yet because the Moon is VOC there is not much that will come from whatever we try to accomplish today. Interesting! Do not implement what you learn today. Take information in, let it percolate on its own. It will find its way to the surface when the time is right. Take in information today that you know you will need in the future.

 

At the end of the workday it will be time to set that entire learning curve aside and find comfort in dinner with your loved ones. If you find yourself alone this evening, I recommend either cooking yourself a special meal or taking yourself out to dinner. Treat yourself as the beloved.

 
 

Friday, June 27, 2014:

 

Very early in the morning, at 4:09AM EDT, is the New Moon at 5° Cancer. This begins the monthly lunar cycle bringing our attention to the seeds of domestic harmony that need to be planted. Look to your living situation, those you share the responsibilities of home with, your children, or your mother. What new seeds are required? What new patterns are you ready to develop that will nurture the lives of those you call ‘Family’.

 

Set time aside to contemplate how you are going to get your own needs met in terms of love and nurturance. Contemplation only goes so far. Reach for your notebook and a pen, brainstorm what your core needs are and what changes need to occur in your life to fulfill those deep needs. This will be the day to take those first steps to bring domestic fulfillment to your life. This process may not be as easy as you expect. Beginning something new shows us where change is required. You may be surprised at what you discover.

 
 

Saturday, June 28, 2014:

 

The Cancer Moon is with us all day on Saturday. Sleep late if you are able to. The morning is likely to be the most difficult part of the day. You may even want to go to the office or spent the morning cleaning house.

 

Don’t worry, the day gets better! Following the suggestion of aggravation and frustration in the morning, the afternoon is relatively uneventful!

 

At 9:03 PM EDT the Moon conjuncts Jupiter and is VOC until tomorrow morning! The connection between the Moon and Jupiter allows us to move away from frustration into a soft space of acceptance and openhearted Love. Whatever you can do to bring this openhearted acceptance to others will support all of us!

 
 

Sunday, June 29, 2014:

 

Sunday begins with the Moon VOC in Cancer, but she quickly enters Leo before we awake. The Moon enters Leo at 4:43 AM EDT, making a sextile to Venus this evening. What a lovely day!

 

At 3:30 PM EDT, Venus in Gemini squares Neptune. These are the first quarter days of the cycle between Venus and Neptune. When Venus and Neptune come together we think of romantic love, fairytale romance, and idealized beauty. We may be very susceptible to a lack of clarity in seeing the reality of our relationships and our financial situations at this time. If you keep a journal, go back to April 11, 2014, give or take a day or two. Was there something new going on at that time regarding your relationships or your resources? If you are able to identify something that began at that time, now consider what action needs to be taken on that issue. For me it must have something to do with taxes! I will definitely need to give this some thought! I know that that was the day that I filed my taxes!

 

This may be a dreamy evening perfect for deep meditation, getting lost in a great movie, or enjoying that extra glass of wine!
