Astrolore’s Weekly Astrology Weather: January 16, 2017 through January 22, 2017

The biggest news this week astrologically is the movement of the Sun (the core energy of our Universe) out of Capricorn and into Aquarius on Thursday, January 19th at 4:23 PM EST.

In the interest of full disclosure, I absolutely LOVE the sign of Aquarius! With seven planets in my natal 11th house, I consider myself an honorary Aquarian even though I have no actual planets in the sign.

So let’s talk a little bit about Aquarius.

Aquarius is the sign of innovation and genius. Don’t think of the genius of Aquarius as an intensely high-level of intellect, but rather, genius as the ability for the mind to go to places it was never taught to go.

Aquarius is the energy that reaches out to the future regardless of how the past may want to hold on to an outdated model. Aquarius is able to cleanly detach from what holds it back from the future.

Without the energy of Aquarius, we would be firmly rooted in the dark ages. Aquarius is a sign that sees the greatest perspective for humanity. Aquarius is not a personal sign; it is not warm and fuzzy.

Aquarius looks to improve conditions of the collective, even when it must leave individuals to fend for them selves.

HIGH EXPECTATIONS

Monday, January 16, 2017:

The week starts with the Moon in perfectionist Virgo. You may wake up in the morning with all kinds of thoughts and plans that will help you reach some elevated state of your perceived potential. Virgo sees its potential clearly and longs to reach a perfected state of that potential. This is generally far easier said than done.

As the day begins, the Moon is highly empowered in a trine aspect to powerful Pluto at 6:40 AM EST. You will feel self-confident and engaged as you move forward into the day. By mid afternoon, with the opposition to impulsive Mars, you may be confronted or aggravated by someone getting in the way of your perfect plan.

The evening doesn’t necessarily get any easier as the Virgo Moon squares melancholic Saturn at 5:13 PM EST allowing restrictions and duties to follow us home.

At 9:13 PM EST, determined Mars connects with Chiron, the planet of wounding and healing. This offers an opportunity for you to see how your fears keep you from your desires. This is an evening to spend in contemplation, consider the process of untangling your fears. Be kind to yourself on Monday evening. A walk in nature or a hot bath will help ease you toward bedtime.

 

FLOWERS – DELIGHT AND BEAUTY

Tuesday, January 17, 2017:

Tuesday begins with a lovely trine aspect from the orderly Virgo Moon and the Sun in ambitious Capricorn. This is a free flow of grounded, stabilizing energy. After a brief VOC, the Moon enters charming Libra at 6:16 AM EST.

What can you do on Tuesday to help establish diplomacy and cooperation with your coworkers and others whom you engage with during the day?

At 1:38 PM EST, you may encounter a challenge to your desire for social harmony (the emotional Moon is square Mercury, the planet of intellect). Allow any negativity or cynicism from others to roll off your back. It is not worth a negative comeback. Go about your day, this challenge will pass quickly will not last as long as you do not engage it.

The rest of the day should prove to be relatively sweet and uneventful. Enjoy a romantic encounter or time with a close friend in the evening. Bring pleasure into your life. Bring home flowers! A little beauty and color will go a long ways to bring delight into your home and cheer up your life.

The Virgo Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 1:10 AM EST until 6:16 AM EST when she enters Libra. Remember, when the Moon is VOC* there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; not good, not bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have significant future impact.

ENJOY THE MORNING, THEN GET SERIOUS

Wednesday, January 18, 2017:

Your experience of Wednesday will likely start out calm as it is a very quiet day astrologically. The Moon remains in graceful Libra throughout the day encouraging the creation of beauty and a deep desire for harmony.

However, as the day progresses be aware of power dynamics (Moon square coercive Pluto at 4:24 PM EST) and the potential for anxiety (Moon oppose defiant Uranus at 10:42 PM EST).

Consider deeply your circumstances and those you encounter. Along with these clear stressors, you can probably feel the building of tension as we approach a square aspect (challenging) between Mars (the planet of direct energy, strength, and anger) and Saturn (the planet of limitations, restriction, and duty). This aspect will not be exact until Thursday at 4:15 AM EST (see Thursday’s post).

Wednesday is also the final full day with the Sun in authoritative Capricorn. Enjoy the steadfast stability and sense of overriding ambition that has characterized the past month.

 

SUN ENTERS AQUARIUS – A SENSE OF REBELLION

Thursday, January 19, 2017:

On Thursday, consider how you are pursuing your goals. At 4:15 AM EST, determined Mars squares authoritative Saturn. What initial action did you take, or seed did you plant with an eventual goal in mind, in late August of 2016? What action needs to be taken now to ensure that you are moving toward the desired result or the healthy growth of the seed planted at that time?

If you feel greatly agitated or somehow restricted at this time, consider how focused or scattered your efforts are or have been. Perhaps, it is time to release some internal expectations in order to focus on what is most important. The full results will be evident at the very end of May 2017.

At 4:23 PM EST, the Sun (the core energy of our world) enters unpredictable, progressive, and humanitarian Aquarius. Over the coming month, you will be inspired to approach life with less emotion and more objectivity. This is the time to listen closely to your internal “Different Drummer”.

Quickly on the heels of the Sun’s entrance into Aquarius, at 5:10 PM EST, the Moon enters penetrating Scorpio bringing a very different feel to the evening.

Right on its heels, the Moon squares the Sun for her Last Quarter Phase. Here, we are challenged to release whatever is holding us back from appropriate steps forward for innovative growth.

This will be a challenging day for yourself and those you encounter. When you are in the company of others, remember this. Offer kindness and practical support to those in your sphere of influence. We are all in this together.

The Libra Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 3:55 AM EST until she enters Scorpio at 5:10 PM EST Remember, when the Moon is VOC* there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; not good, not bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have significant future impact.

 

CONNECT DEEPLY

Friday, January 20, 2017:

Friday morning offers you an opportunity to profoundly deepen your attitude or approach to that which you value highly in your life. At 8:56 AM EST, lovely Venus forms a sextile aspect to transformative Pluto. This opportunity may be about intimate love relationships or it could be about money and other physical possessions of beauty and value.

On November 25th,  you planted a seed of profound deep love, value, or desire. Now, you are encouraged to explore different ways to help that seed grow. This is an aspect that helps you explore and discover a way to encourage the growth of passion, desire, and beauty.

The powerful Scorpio Moon forms a lovely trine to mystical Neptune at 1:50 PM EST bringing a flow of magic, devotion, and sensitivity to the passion that is available throughout the rest of the day. Connect deeply.

RELEASE CONTROL

Saturday, January 21, 2017:

Saturday is a simple day of deepening connections. The profoundly powerful Scorpio Moon forms lovely aspects to the planet of power (Pluto), the planet of love and beauty (Venus), and the power of action and assertiveness (Mars) throughout the day.

Our hearts feel rich and deep.  For this day, we understand the need for sensitivity, understanding, and the releasing of control.

We are able to allow deep introspection to support the release of anger, forgiveness of hidden forces, manipulations, and mysterious power grabs.

We come together to support each other in the vision of transformation ahead. We stand where we stand and must move forward from the reality of where we are. My love is with each and every one of you

The Scorpio Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 8:25 PM EST until she interests Sagittarius on Sunday at 5:46 AM EST. Remember, when the Moon is VOC* there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; not good, not bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have significant future impact.

 

FUN ADVENTURES

Sunday, January 22, 2017:

When we awaken on Sunday morning, we are greeted with the Moon in adventurous, fun-loving Sagittarius.

At 11:30 AM EST, the optimistic Sagittarius Moon forms a delightful sextile aspect to the unpredictable Aquarius Sun.

Sit down with a friend or partner and plan a vacation or at least a weekend road trip. This is a delightful day for gathering with like-minded friends, other social activities, or a road trip!

Find a fun adventure, bring a few friends; whatever you do, don’t waste this day!

__________________________________________________________
* 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.

ENERGY FLOWS TO YOUR DREAM

Monday, June 27, 2016:

We begin the week with the Moon in Aries forming the Final Quarter Square to the Sun at 2:18 PM EDT. This places our needs and desires at cross-purposes to each other.  At a fundamental level, there is a sense of wanting our familial relationships close by for comfort and love. However, at the same time we sense the need for pushing forward on an individual path that will take us further from those familial relationships. Balance between these two can be a challenge, accept that challenge and utilize courage to work with it.

At 9:52 AM EDT, Venus forms a lovely trine aspect to Neptune. This is a highly romantic aspect, although not necessarily the romance of personal love. It could show up regarding a dream, a fantasy, or a spiritual aspiration that holds that same energy of soft love.

Think back to March 20th – give or take a day – of this year. What began at that time? Was it a dream, a fantasy, a new acceptance or awareness of spirituality, or was it, in fact, a romantic love relationship? Whatever began at that time very likely came to a point of requiring attention and effort on (approximately) June 3rd.  Now, we are on the part of the path that is clear sailing. We encounter a free flow of energy occurring between these two planets that will support you as you reach the full illumination of the dream or awareness in mid August.

The important thing here is to trust where you are in the process, allow the gift that is offered in the form of opening your spirit and heart to love and you are over-arching dream.

 

ALLOW ANXIETY OR POWER DYNAMICS TO PASS

Tuesday, June 28, 2016:

The only major aspects in the heavens on Tuesday involve the Aries Moon. Therefore, even the most difficult challenges won’t stick around long if we allow the energy to simply pass by without attaching ourselves to a particular agenda.

At 7:14 AM EDT, the Aries Moon squares Pluto. This suggests the potential for a volatile morning. Perhaps a run, bike ride, or a trip to the gym would be helpful to release this energy. If you choose not to move the energy in that way, make the effort to simply not engage with frustration and power dynamics. This challenge will pass quickly if you do not feed it with drama and upset.

At 8:12 PM EDT, the Moon conjunct Uranus offers more highly intensified emotional energy. If your chart is predominantly of the Water or Earth elements (Taurus, Cancer, Virgo, Scorpio, Capricorn, Pisces), make an effort to show restraint regarding impatience and aggravation toward others. If your chart is more highly balanced in the Fire or Air elements, this can be a very innovative and exciting evening.

If you notice yourself feeling excited, enjoy the ride. If you notice anxiety or even fear arising, understand that if you can hold steady it will pass rapidly.

This is a passing influence; neither the anxiety nor the excitement will last long. Give everyone, including you, some slack to make mistakes.

 

MARS TURNS DIRECT; RELIEF

Wednesday, June 29, 2016:

Wednesday morning the Moon enters Taurus at 6:03 AM EDT. This settles us down and brings our focus to simple pleasures and practical effort. We are deeply aware of our desire to build a life that works smoothly without drama. Mercury leaves its home sign of Gemini to join the Sun and Venus in Cancer. Venus will remain in the emotional sign of Cancer until July 12.

While Mercury is in Cancer, our thoughts are based on feelings more than actual thoughts; communications become personal as we nurture others with our words and conversations.

We have been waiting for this day for a while now! I am delighted to finally be here! At 7:38 PM EDT, Mars having been retrograde since April 17th finally turns direct at 23° Scorpio. Now, we must consider what we have learned over the past 2.5 months regarding our use and experiences related to assertiveness, aggression, anger, and even violence in our lives.

In the coming weeks, we will continue to contemplate the most authentic ways to use powerful, masculine energy with integrity. Watch this learning as it reflects in our culture as well as our personal lives. The current conversation about gun control issues is one obvious place this issue is playing out.

The experiences of Mars retrograde have past and now we learn from what we have encountered.

 

A LOVELY MORNING

Thursday, June 30, 2016:

Thursday begins with high hopes and the potential of love and sweetness. We start the day with a Grand Trine aspect in stable Earth signs with the Taurus Moon forming trine to both Pluto and Jupiter along with sextile aspect to Venus and Neptune. This is a prescription for pleasure, enjoyment, and personal growth.

By evening, the tides turn as the Moon opposing Mars at 8:18 PM EDT. Slow down and allow your temper and impatient to dissipate. Once that passes, the atmosphere of conflict will very likely continue into your dreams as Venus opposes Pluto at 11:31 PM EDT. Jealousy, power dynamics, and possessiveness may arise.

Consider that you may be projecting your own insecurities onto your relationship(s). Go inward for this contemplation. Go to sleep early, sleep late on Friday and perhaps you can process this challenging transit within sleep and dreams.

 

ENJOY THE LOVE

Friday, July 1, 2016:
Friday loosens up the tight knot of inflexibility and intensity that was with us through the later part of Thursday. At 7:45 AM EDT, the Moon enters Gemini where our minds and hearts open to flexibility, simplicity, and friendliness. This is not a day for heavy conversations or deep introspection. This is a day for light friendship and pleasant explorations.

At 3:18 PM EDT, Venus, the planet of love, forms a sextile aspect to Jupiter expanding possibilities for love and sweet connections. Show your appreciation for others (and you will likely feel a great deal of it) with words and deeds rather than with gifts. It would be far too easy to spend more than is advisable.

You would be ill advised to do any shopping on Friday unless you have planned the purchase ahead of time. Pay attention to all the areas of your life that you cannot afford to overindulge in. Make sure before you enter any situation that may elicit this issue that you know exactly the lines and limits you want to stick with. It is so easy to overdo it when Venus and Jupiter join forces. ☺ Enjoy the Love!

SATURDAY NIGHT DANCING

Saturday, July 2, 2016:

Saturday’s Gemini Moon is actively encouraging us to explore all kinds of internal and external conversations, people, and ideas. Do you have plans for this weekend? If not, don’t sit at home waiting for the Gemini Moon to do its magic without your making the effort. Follow curiosity; seek out people, places, and situations that engage your most inquisitive nature.

Brunch, followed by a road trip with friends would be ideal. Watch your tendency to overspend when you are out with others.

If you stay up late, you may encounter delightful and unexpected surprises as the Gemini Moon sextile Uranus at 11:43 PM EDT. Perhaps, this is the Saturday night to head to a dance club and enjoy play and movement.

 

THE RESULTS OF A DREAM

Sunday, July 3, 2016:

Whatever you encountered at that dance club on Saturday night must have been beneficial as Sunday begins with a trine aspect from the Sun to Neptune (due to Neptune’s retrograde this aspect will be repeated one last time on November 1st). We may feel that we are under a spell of mystical pleasures and overwhelming compassion and love.

When the Moon enters Cancer at 9:20 AM EDT, the desire to nurture and love increases. It is important to find an outlet for this deep kindness. Babies, puppies, lovers, & friends are all easy recipients; allow tenderness to flow.

Whatever dream began in late February is now flowing its fullness into your heart. Accept this soft transcendent sensitivity as a natural outcome of allowing the dream to take root in late February.  A new dream (or a renewed version of this one) will begin in early March 2017. Go ahead; begin to plan for that now.

Astrolore’s Weekly Astrology Weather: March 28, 2016 through April 3, 2016

As we end the month of March and move forward into April, we look back on the cycle that began with the Pisces solar eclipse on March 8th and came into its full illumination with the Libra lunar eclipse on March 23rd.  These eclipses have brought new perspectives, new opportunities, and the potential to resolve powerful challenges.

~ Heads Up! ~  During the month of April, we will have Mars turning retrograde on the 18th and Mercury turning retrograde on the 28th.  It is not too soon to begin considering how to work with the inward movement of these energies.  Begin an awareness of what projects you would like to complete during the Mercury retrograde.

Mars is a bit more complex and we will talk about as we get closer to the time.

However, do remember during the time of Mars retrograde you will not want to have any sort of surgery or begin any activity that has potential danger involved. This is not the time to learn skydiving!  More about this later.

A Walk by Rainer Maria Rilke

 

My eyes already touch the sunny hill.
going far ahead of the road I have begun.
So we are grasped by what we cannot grasp;
it has inner light, even from a distance-

and charges us, even if we do not reach it,
into something else, which, hardly sensing it,
we already are; a gesture waves us on
answering our own wave…
but what we feel is the wind in our faces.

UPLIFTING CLARITY

Monday, March 28, 2016:

The week begins with the Moon in exuberant, freedom loving Sagittarius.  My hope is that you had a lovely weekend and feel energized and ready to face the upcoming week.

The Sagittarius Moon buoys your energy and puts a positive spin on the day.  At 4:12 PM EDT, the Moon conjuncts Mars and shortly after, forms a lovely flowing trine aspect to the Sun in Aries.

This is a day of delightfully uplifting energy.  Allow yourself to bask in clarity.  You know where you are headed and can grasp excitement on your path.  If this is not your experience, ask yourself if you are living your own truth or are trying to please someone else.

At 11:50 PM EDT, the Moon squares Neptune allowing sweet dreams and lovely inspiration.

 

A WILD CARD

Tuesday, March 29, 2016:

Tuesday may be a bit of a wild card.

The Sagittarius Moon continues to seek expansive understanding and yet her conjunction with Saturn at 11:18 AM EDT suggests a restrictive influence on your optimism.  Do your best to allow criticism to roll off your back.  Do not take it personally, if you let the situation pass without reaction the negativity will eventually dissipate.

At 9:55 PM EDT, the Moon forms a square aspect to Venus, pushing you to question your desires and your method of pursuing them.

The day ends with Mercury trine Saturn.  This allows you to settle yourself into a more practical state of mind.  Engaging with a more mature line of thinking allows for mental clarity and a more stable mind.

If you normally meditate in the morning, make an exception on Tuesday and take time for meditation before you sleep.  It is important that you take advantage of this opportunity to bring some stability to your thinking.  Over the coming days, this stability will be challenged.

 

UNCOVER TRUTH

Wednesday, March 30, 2016:

Seek mystical dreams and the ability to bring compassion to your deepest wounds on Wednesday as Venus conjunct Chiron at 5:07 AM EDT.  Enjoy the gentle sense of awakening to start the day.

Port 01 by MedBerkane via Wiki Commons

Port 01 by MedBerkane via Wiki Commons

Do not try to hold on to that sensitivity or softness.  There are intense energies that will need your attention as you move into the day.

At 10:53 AM EDT, Mercury forms a stressful square to Pluto, the planet of powerful transformation.  Information that is exposed or a line of thinking that envelops you will have a powerful impact moving forward.

The Moon enters Capricorn at 1:45 PM EDT.  This is a serious afternoon; a time to seek honesty, internal integrity, and understanding.

What communication or disclosure will move you forward regarding something that became clear to you between mid-December 2015 and the end of January 2016?  Be brutally honest with yourself.

Secrecy and a lack of integrity will bring you to places you do not want to go. Uncover truth.  Before you look with suspicion into the heart of another, seek your own integrity.  Be aware of your thoughts and how they guide your life.  Be aware of your words and the impact they have on others.

Build integrity.  Spread kindness.

 

REVOLUTIONARY THOUGHTS

Thursday, March 31, 2016:

On Thursday, the Capricorn Moon forms her Last Quarter Square at 11:17 AM EDT. Anticipate tension between heavy responsibilities and the radical desire to put our own needs first.  Consider how to balance the need to quickly move in new directions while at the same time maintaining your more serious contemplations and responsibilities.  This is a day to work on this balance.

At 4:49 PM EDT, Mercury conjunct Uranus offers alternative perspectives for finding that balance.  The conjunction between Mercury and Uranus begins a new cycle of expanding thoughts and encountering new possibilities, alternative perspectives, and unusual ways of viewing the world.

Big ideas can illuminate your vision on a day like this.  Sudden ideas must be considered and looked at with open minded excitement.

Any study or thought process you begin now will be fully understood and illuminated at the opposition between Mercury and Uranus in October 2016. Revolutionary thoughts, ideas, and communications abound.  Find excitement; find new directions.

Show the world your true colors, say what must be said, show what is truly in your heart.

 

RECHARGE YOUR BATTERIES

Friday, April 1, 2016:

We all like the energy of Fridays as we head into a freedom filled weekend. However, this Friday is probably lacking that sense of excitement and anticipation. With the Moon in serious, authoritative Capricorn, we spend the early part of the day working hard from a solitary perspective.  The Moon is quiet after 12:40 PM EDT suggested a struggle focusing on getting the normal work of Capricorn done.  There may be much frustration throughout the afternoon as the focus that you need isn’t available and doesn’t engage you.

The best use of this evening is to recharge your batteries and not worry about social activities, spend the evening on your own.  Saturday is another day.

At 9:38 PM EDT, the Moon leaves the heavy work environment of Capricorn behind and enters Aquarius bringing more unpredictable and innovative thinking to the later part of the evening.

HIGH INNOVATIVE ENERGY

Saturday, April 2, 2016:

Saturday brings the freedom and anticipation you were unable to tap into on Friday.  The Aquarius Moon rules the day!

This is a day of intellectual exploration; you will be drawn to what is new and unusual.  The Moon in Aquarius is a great time for social gatherings, dealing with humanitarian ideals, goals for the future, innovative brainstorming, and new ideas. This could be a difficult day to stick with schedules as your personal freedom is of the utmost importance to you.

Do not try to control yourself or others.  Seek freedom, offer freedom, encourage freedom.  With the Aquarius Moon forming a sextile to both Mars in Sagittarius and the Aries Sun, this is a day of high-energy.

What will you do with this day?  How can your activities progress humanity forward?  Think about this and take one small step forward.

 

SEEK INNOVATIVE SOLUTIONS

Sunday, April 3, 2016:

Sunday graces us with the innovative, rebellious energy of Aquarius that began on Friday.  The Aquarius Moon forms delightful aspects of potential and opportunity, to Saturn, Uranus, and Mercury.  People often get confused and think that Aquarius is a Water sign as it is called “The Water Bearer”.  Please remember that Aquarius is an Air Sign.  As an Air Sign, Aquarius is connected to intellectualism, innovation, and new ideas that bring the world to an expanded level of awareness.

Aquarius brings us the nature of upheaval and rebellion.  This revolutionary energy is necessary in order to leave the past behind and move into a new way of thinking.

Some of you will experience the anxiety of rebellion on Sunday, while others will experience the corresponding excitement. This is due, in part, to the particulars of your own horoscope and partly, it is simply a choice.

On Sunday, you can make unique choices; you do not need to stay with the status quo.  Seek out the original ideas that will change your world and the world around you.  There are new, unexpected pathways to solve the problems in our lives, our communities, and our world.

This is not a day to seek practical accomplishment but a day to expand your mind. Gather with like-minded people or folks who are willing to look at new perspectives and seek innovative solutions.  Play with ideas.  Enjoy diversity.

Astrolore’s Weekly Astrology Weather: February 29, 2016 through March 6, 2016

The planetary alignment suggests a very active, busy week. We begin the week with the extra day of February. Remember, this is a leap year! Treat it as an EXTRA day and you will begin the week with a sense of abundance!

Early in the week, watch as your values or your experience of the values of others, take an interesting turn. This could show up in terms of money or love. You may be presented with an opportunity to stabilize these areas, even as they expand with unexpected or unusual growth. Anticipate and prepare for unique opportunities that can result in powerful new developments.

The weekend ahead may bring communication challenges as your thinking moves through anger followed by a turn toward confusion. Seeking a path toward deeper spiritual understanding will help.

The plus side of the weekend could bring unexpected travel. A road trip to Montreal is not out of the question! But staying out late dancing on Saturday night may not be the best option. Better to get some sleep and enjoy museums or places of worship on Sunday (those churches are beautiful).

This is a powerful week with a lot of changing energies. Hang on for the ride, maintain solid integrity, don’t be hard on yourself or others, and allow yourself to dream.

 


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. Allow more joy and love into your life.

Make your appointment today!

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.

 

SAY ‘YES’

Monday, February 29, 2016:

We begin the week with the Moon connecting with Mars, pushing us forward with a powerful need to take action on some deeply felt issue. At 6:56 PM EST, the Moon enters Sagittarius opening some of the tightness or confusion you may have brought with you from the weekend.

Allow yourself to open your perspective and look to your dreams for the future. At 8:07 PM EST, Venus and Saturn form a sextile. This offers us opportunities in the area of love or money.

Keep your eyes open on Monday and Tuesday for possibilities you may not have considered. If an opportunity presents itself that feels good and proper; simply open your heart and your mind and say ‘Yes’.

 

SO MANY POSSIBILITIES

Tuesday, March 1, 2016:

Starting the day on Tuesday, you may feel like you’re getting up on the wrong side of the bed. These feelings are reflecting the square between the Moon and Neptune

This is the day when navigating the path ahead may bring up many questions. We are distracted and possibly overwhelmed by the possibilities. We intuitively know that there are things we must let go of and directions that must be shifted in order to stay on our path.

The Third Quarter Square between the Sun and Moon occurs at 6:11 PM EST. In order to follow your own best intentions, you must know what to release and where to shift direction. It is important to stay grounded in this process.

Don’t throw the baby out with the bathwater! Narrow your focus and pay attention to what is necessary.

FOLLOW YOUR HEART

Wednesday, March 2, 2016:

Don’t underestimate the significance of the energies provided on Wednesday.
Your relationships to the most significant people in your life and your deepest held values (including money and other resources) seek exploration and new understanding.

Venus sextiles the wild energy of Uranus at 8:07 PM EST and is asking you (or at least offers the opportunity) to consider solutions and ideas outside the box of convention. With your emotions somewhat detached, you are able to see a bigger view and more possibilities. You don’t have to follow conventional norms or rules; you can follow your deepest hearts desires.

Lines of communication are open and you are open to new ways of experiencing your world. This brings an opportunity to consider alternatives to the status quo, open-minded perspectives, as well as the ability to detach from the opinions of others.

Follow your heart. Give more space to your creative and cerebral thinking.

 

PRACTICAL REALITIES

Thursday, March 3, 2016:

The shift of energy from Wednesday into Thursday may feel considerable. If you loved the energy of Wednesday, today may feel a bit repressive. If you experienced a lot of anxiety on Wednesday, this new energy may feel stable and solid, what a relief!

The Moon enters Capricorn at 5:02 AM EST insisting that you get serious about the practical realities of your life. This is a day for ambition and serious work. You may feel the need to put your personal life on the back burner as you focus on more pragmatic concerns. Enjoy a sense of accomplishment by maintaining that solid focus on all those practical realities.

Before bedtime, it will be important to release that seriousness. Allow yourself a movie, a glass of wine, or extra time on your meditation cushion. Get to sleep in time to tune-in to open, intuitive dream space; especially when the Moon sextile Neptune at 10:57 PM EST.

 

ALLOW FOR IMPERFECTIONS

Friday, March 4, 2016:

The theme of serious, practical accomplishments continues throughout Friday. As the Moon conjunct Pluto at 12:18 PM EST, you will likely be deeply focused on whatever work project you are involved in. Remember, that it may not be easy to be flexible.

At 2:58 PM EST, the Moon squares Uranus and flexibility will be key to managing this transit. If you are too profoundly focused, distractions could become a problem. Allow, develop, and seek flexibility. Allow for the gifts of imperfection and attempt to maintain a sense of humor.

When the Moon trine Jupiter at 3:30 PM EST, tensions should relax and the rest of the afternoon has the potential of being very constructive. You may be surprised at how much you can accomplish in a short period of time.

A quiet evening at home would be advisable. This is not an evening to go looking for pleasure in a social arena. If you want to make plans for socializing this weekend, Saturday evening will be the better choice.

HOLD STEADY WHILE ENERGIES SHIFT

Saturday, March 5, 2016:

This brings us to a very busy weekend ahead. On Saturday, Mercury squares Mars at 12:43 AM EST. Perhaps, you can sleep through the reflection of this argumentative aspect or experience the aggravation within the context of your dreams.

By the time you wake up Saturday morning, Mercury has left Aquarius behind to enter Pisces. You may notice your thinking takes on a very different flavor than it has since Mercury entered Aquarius on February 13th. Your thoughts may go to places of intangibility, high imagination, and deep sensitivity.

It may be difficult to follow a train of thought without getting lost in strong, watery currents. We can expect less clarity and more mystical thinking while Mercury remains in Pisces until March 21st.

At 11:06 AM EST, the Moon leaves serious Capricorn behind to enter detached, intellectual Aquarius. We are finally able to get away from so much focus on work and, on an emotional level, move to a cooler, more detached space where all kinds of possibilities may become available.

At 9:28 PM EST, Mars enters Sagittarius after having been in Scorpio since January 3rd. Mars represents our ability to take decisive action, assertiveness, and how we experience and use our sexual energy. While Mars was in Scorpio, we functioned (sexually and assertively) in deep pools of privacy and discretion as we explored our inner depths.

What have you discovered, hidden under the surface, about how your energy wants or needs to express itself? As Mars moves into Sagittarius, we are open to lighter, more exploratory arenas within which we are able to move our assertive, aggressive, and sexual energies. Explore new territory.

In April 2016, Mars will turn retrograde. This means Mars will remain in Sagittarius until late September 2016. Do you know what house Sagittarius occupies in your chart? This will be an area of significant activity between now and September. Make sure you were living your highest integrity in this area. The importance of this will be clear in the coming months.

 

REALITY AND EMPOWERMENT

Sunday, March 6, 2016:

Sunday begins on a serious note with the Sun square Saturn at 1:03 AM EST. Think back to a most serious issue in late November 2015. On November 29th, the Sun conjunct Saturn which began an annual cycle of developing maturity through integrity and hard work. What began in your life at that time? If you have the answer to that question, it will give you an idea of how to manage the square between them on Sunday.

As this is the Last Quarter Square in their cycle, signifying the end of this influence, it is important that you take an action on what began in late November. This is a serious aspect, asking you to make a decision and take action to move your life forward in a practical manner.

Slow down and consider carefully the vision you are working to create. Be clear that you are taking concrete, real-world steps to develop that dream. This is a time to look at reality and make sure you’re taking the necessary, practical steps forward toward an achievable goal.

As the day comes to a close, the Sun sextile Pluto at 11:40 PM EST which suggests that the hard work you are investing in your future opens possibilities for great empowerment moving forward. This is a delightful energy to end the week with.

Reflect and rejoice.

* 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.

Are you at a crossroad in your life? Are your circumstances other than what you expected?

We can meet for an individual consultations (Burlington, Vermont), by telephone, or on SKYPE!

Life Transitions Require New Perspectives!

It is my goal to empower you in the exploration of the past, present and future of your life.

Let's talk. There is so much to learn and understand.
