Astrolore’s Weekly Astrology Weather: September 25, 2017 through October 1, 2017

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

Monday, September 25, 2017:

The week begins with seriously mixed signals. The Moon in Sagittarius provides an optimistic atmosphere, an idealistic view, and an expansive vision of the future.

However, it will be largely overshadowed when, at 10:35AM EDT, Mercury, the planet of thought and communication forms a challenging square aspect to realistic, hardworking Saturn. Saturn provides limitations and restrictions in order for us to face the reality of our responsibilities. This is not an easy or a fun transit but it will push you to do what needs to be done in order to develop mature clarity in your thoughts and plans. The cycle between Mercury and Saturn is an annual cycle as Mercury takes approximate a year to move fully around the ecliptic.

Think back to what you were thinking, planning, or studying in November of 2016. As this is the Third Quarter Square of this cycle, it is time to begin wrapping up and finalizing that project, study, or thought process.

Now is the time to consider what serious new project, study, or contemplation you want to begin when the new cycle begins in approximately 2 months. As you consider releasing the past, begin contemplating the seeds of the future. Difficult challenges that come your way on Wednesday will point you in the direction of what part of your life is winding down or preparing to be moved in a new direction.



Tuesday, September 26, 2017:

With Monday’s intellectual challenge (Mercury square Saturn), winding down you will be more attuned to the easy going Sagittarius Moon on Tuesday. With the Moon in Sagittarius, you tend to feel positive about the direction of your life. Your thoughts turn in the direction of expanding your philosophical perceptions, a desire to gain greater understanding of your place in the world and culture, and to view how others fit into this larger view as well. You want to see through the eyes of others to gain clarity and understanding; you also seek adventure with a strong desire for the freedom to travel and see the world.

The only glitch in the system is when the emotional Moon joins with restrictive Saturn at 8:16 PM EDT. As you wind down the day, you are reminded that you still have reality to consider. You may want to engage with travel and freedom, but there is still your job, responsibilities, and bills to pay.

It’s okay, it is a matter of balance. The joy of life and the challenges of hard work and responsibilities must exist in harmony, side by side, hand in hand.



Wednesday, September 27, 2017:

Wednesday begins with the independent Sagittarius Moon forming lovely aspects to both optimistic Jupiter and eccentric Uranus. This suggests a morning of unexpected pleasures and perhaps unusual surprises. Do keep in mind that the Moon will be VOC* (see below) between 7:09 AM EDT and 12:25 PM EDT. Keep a low profile and enjoy whatever the morning offers.

Autumn in America, Oneida County, New York by Albert Bierstadt via Wiki Media

At 12:25 PM EDT, the emotional environment will change considerably as the Moon leaves joyful Sagittarius behind to enter disciplined Capricorn. While the Moon is in Capricorn, your focus will move toward more serious, realistic issues. Your attention will turn toward the practical and necessary steps you need to take at this time of your life.

This is a great afternoon to work on developing clear goals and plans in significant areas of your life. Given the option you will likely choose work and duty over fun or emotional connections. Please be cognizant of how you treat others. Sometimes when the Moon is in Capricorn, we can be so responsible, serious, and practical that we forget to be kind.

The Sagittarius Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 7:09 AM EDT until she enters Capricorn at 12:25 PM EDT.

Remember, when the Moon is VOC*, there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; it is not good or bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have any significant future impact.



Thursday, September 28, 2017:

Very late Wednesday night, we reach the First Quarter Moon with the Moon still in serious Capricorn. This offers a simple reminder to look back at the New Moon on September 20th and consider the seed you planted at that time and take action to move your intention forward.

Also, while you slept very early Thursday night, expansive Jupiter (at 27° Libra) opposed unconventional Uranus (at 27° Aries). This suggests the possibility of a large, unexpected surprise that has its roots in something that began between mid-2010 and the beginning of 2011.*

When you think of the cycle between Jupiter and Uranus, understand that it is a cycle of expanding the unusual, enlarging the revolutionary mind. Whatever began in 2010 and 2011 shows its full results now? What personal internal revolution did you begin at that time? Where has it brought you?

Pluto turns direct at 3:36 PM EDT after having been retrograde since April. Some area of deep inner contemplation is complete; you are ready to stand more fully in the light of your own power. Wherever 16 degrees Capricorn falls in your chart, will help you understand the area of this personal empowerment.

*Googling political issues of that time (mid 2010 – early 2011) will surprise you… as will your own calendars and journals. You can’t make this stuff up.



Friday, September 29, 2017:

The disciplined Capricorn Moon will be with us throughout Friday. Other than a bit of anxiety or excitement around 7:20 PM EDT, the daytime hours are stable, steady, and serious

At 8:11 PM EDT. Venus, the planet that represents our personal values of love, beauty, and resources forms an opposition aspect to Neptune, the planet of illusions and dreams. This can be a very romantic connection; do enjoy the romance but remember that Neptune will cloud your vision, you may have those rose tinted glasses firmly affixed and may wake up a few days later with a whole different understanding of the situation.

In exploring the entire cycle of Venus and Neptune, consider what romantic (or otherwise beautiful) vision around love or money began in January of 2017. What do you see your choices at that time have created over the past 9 months?

This is a great day for imagination, meditation, dreams, and visions. This is not a great day for clarity, precision, or accuracy. Dance, paint, meditate, dream.

At 8:42 PM EDT, Mercury enters Libra after being in Virgo for the past three weeks. Allow your thoughts to turn toward love and beauty. You and those around you will be more willing to compromise and able to see issues from other perspectives.

The Capricorn Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 8:14 PM EDT until she enters Aquarius shortly after midnight (12:41 AM EDT Saturday morning). Remember, when the Moon is VOC*, there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; it is not good or bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have any significant future impact.

Saturday, September 30, 2017:

“If a man does not keep pace with his companions, perhaps it is because he hears a different drummer. Let him step to the music which he hears, however measured or far away.” ~ Henry David Thoreau

Following the last few serious days of mature stability, courtesy of the Capricorn Moon, on Saturday, you awake to a very different emotional environment. At 12:41 AM EDT, the Moon enters innovative, open-minded Aquarius putting issues of humanitarianism in the spotlight.

Saturday will be best utilized by seeking situations where you can engage with like-minded others for the purpose of improving the plight of all. Aquarius is an Air sign, engaging us in unusual intellectual pursuits that will forward the culture in revolution or innovation. You may feel inclined toward unexpected insights, rebellious ideas, and spontaneous actions.

The afternoon and evening bring lovely flowing aspects to both mental Mercury and the all-powerful Sun. Meet with community, allow ideas and plans to flow. Move your life forward in unusual. unpredictable ways. This is a day to go your own way, with others of like mind, not a day to follow the conventional crowd.



Sunday, October 1, 2017:

Sunday has some similarities to Saturday as we continue working with others for the betterment of the whole human race.

However, there is a powerful drive now that will push you firmly forward. With directive Mars forming a beautiful trine aspect to highly influential Pluto at 7:36 PM EDT, you have the wherewithal to propel your agenda forward with power and assurance. You may notice a strong drive to excel or succeed in some situation that has the potential to bring very positive results.

Throw yourself wholeheartedly into whatever began around October of 2016. Think back to that time. What powerful intent were you focused on at that time?  Your determination is very strong. Push steady with concentration; the time is at hand.




* In these weekly reports, I am exploring the major aspects formed by transits 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.

Monday, April 3, 2017:

This morning, you would rather stay home and avoid work altogether. With the receptive Moon in domestic Cancer, your home and issues of tenderness and love are the concerns you would like to occupy your day.

However, most of us will need to head to work. Early in the day, as the Moon forms an easy trine aspect to Neptune (12:26 PM EDT), it may seem difficult to get your feet firmly on the ground.

Mid-afternoon (2:40 PM EDT), the forceful Aries Sun and protective Cancer Moon form a challenging square aspect bringing us to the First Quarter phase of the Moon. If you think about Cancer’s desire to cuddle with a loved one in a warm nest and Aries’ desire to take a solitary and courageous mountain bike ride, you will understand the challenge between these two energies. Think back to the seed you planted at the New Moon last week. Find a way to use these two conflicting energies to move that process forward.

As soon as your workday is complete, head home, cook a meal for yourself or your family and settle in to any domestic comfort you choose to create.




Tuesday, April 4, 2017:

When you awake on Tuesday morning, your challenging dreams may linger, leaving you with an unsettling sense of anxiety. If you remember those dreams, look for the message within and release any discomfort. The sensitive Cancer Moon forms challenging aspects to excessive Jupiter, subversive Pluto, and unsettling Uranus between late Monday night and Tuesday morning.

Allow yourself to explore unusual patterns. Don’t try to stick with all that is expected of you. Perhaps, it is time to explore a new way of viewing the world. Make contact with folks who will stretch or challenge your viewpoints. Stop assuming your worldview is the only one worthy of airtime.

At 4:46 PM EDT, the tender Cancer Moon forms a flowing trine aspect to lovely Venus allowing a loving connection. Take a break from your work and head outside even for a moment; look at the sky and experience expansive beauty.

At 6:13 PM EDT, the Moon enters exuberant Leo, opening the evening for playful fun, the pleasure of creativity.

The Cancer Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 4:46 PM EDT until she enters Leo at 6:13 PM EDT. 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 a significant future impact.

Wednesday, April 5, 2017:

The most significant aspect on Wednesday happens at the very final moments of the day. Just at midnight, courageous Mars forms a flowing trine aspect to empowered Pluto. When these two mighty planets work together in a harmonious configuration, you can expect great determination and strength of your actions. You are likely to feel highly motivated to move heaven and earth toward the fulfillment of whatever significant plan or project you have embarked upon.

The cycle between Mars and Pluto (a two year cycle) began in August 2016. What did you plunge into at that time that you knew would take great resolve and willpower? Whatever began at that time has reached a point in its growth where the wind is at your back and progress is steady inherently easy. The full expression of this cycle will come in late May. Plan for it!

The Moon and continues through playful Leo encouraging you to spend time with creative pleasures. If you have children in your life, spend time with them; engage on their level of play. Enjoy




Thursday, April 6, 2017:

On Thursday, Saturn turns retrograde, remaining thus until August 25th. Over the course of this 4 ½ months, it is important to do some soul-searching regarding any long-term commitments that you are considering. This could be around issues of relationship, business, relocation, or your career. If you know the house Saturn is moving through in your chart during this retrograde, that is the most likely area on which to focus your contemplation.

The lovely Leo Moon forms a Grand Trine aspect to exciting Uranus and stable Saturn throughout the afternoon. You should experience an easy sense of satisfaction and excitement simultaneously. You may feel very anchored and reliable even as you feel exhilarant and animated. Hold this paradox with pleasure as for now, both energies hold space together in friendship.

The Leo Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 8:17 PM EDT until she enters Virgo 20 minutes after midnight. 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.




Friday, April 7, 2017:

When you wake up on Friday morning, the Moon will have entered practical Virgo. You can go ahead and put away your toys from the last few Leo Moon days.

The efficiency and precision of Virgo is challenged as the Sun opposes optimistic Jupiter at 5:38 PM EDT. This energy definitely flies in the face of practical Virgo as you are pushed to excess, extravagance, and overindulgence.

The cycle between the Sun and Jupiter began in late September. In looking back at that time, consider what you started that was of an expansive nature. What big idea or plan did you begin in September? Now, at the planets’ opposition, look back and see how far you have come with that idea or that plan and then make any adjustments necessary to bring it into its fullest power. Pay attention to the places where you can give or receive big ideas or large pleasures.

It is probably best to leave your credit cards at home as it would be so easy to overspend. Watch where your eyes may be bigger than your stomach…. or your dream has gotten unrealistic. We must always remember the delicate balance between expansion and reality.

Saturday, April 8, 2017:

Saturday starts out easily enough. You will probably feel productive and powerful due to a lovely Earth Grand Trine. However, the afternoon brings difficult challenges.

When Venus squares Saturn at 4:28 PM EDT, there may be issues that you can not ignore in your love life and relationships or you may need to face reality (and fear) concerning your finances. Face reality head-on; that does not mean to process things extensively with a partner.

Saturday’s transits will be better managed as an internal private job. Understand the reality of your situation and allowed it to be exactly as it is. Nothing must be resolved in this moment.

At 8:49 PM EDT, when the Sun squares destructive Pluto, you will be happy if you did not engage in any arguments. This challenging aspect insists that you face the truth of your deeper motivations and get clear on what is uncomfortable in your attempts to gain power over others. Be aware of your motivations and face yourself honestly.

If you are ready, bring your understanding of yourself to the table… speak only of your own path, don’t make any statement or assumption of what someone else is bringing to the table.




Sunday, April 9, 2017:

On Sunday morning, the Moon enters cooperative, charming Libra at 8:35 AM EDT. You are ready to re-establish peace and grace into your home and beyond. This is a great morning to go out for brunch with loved ones and friends. You are ready to deepen your connections as you learn the difference between codependency and interdependence. Give this some thought on Sunday morning.

The big news, however, is that at 7:14 PM EDT, Mercury turns retrograde at 4° Taurus. Spend time today preparing for the upcoming three weeks. Mercury will turn direct once again on May 3rd. If you have followed my writing over the years, you are familiar with the best ways to work with Mercury retrograde. Here is your reminder:

4 Simple Steps to Managing Mercury Retrograde!

  1. Don’t be afraid, worried, or concerned!
  2. Get a notebook and a pen. Make a list of everything that you have begun but NOT completed in the past few months.
  3. Get to work! Accomplish what is on this list! Only what is on this list!
  4. Don’t be tempted to start new projects, begin new commitments, new relationships, or new jobs!

Mercury retrograde brings us the gift of time to wrap up loose ends!

The Virgo Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 4:22 AM EDT until she enters Libra at 8:35 AM EDT. 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.

* In these weekly reports, I am exploring the major aspects formed by transits 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.

Contemplation for the week:

“Nurture your mind with great thoughts, for you will never go any higher than you think.” ~ Benjamin Disraeli

This could be a powerful week ahead; there is significant activity to be managed.

The week begins with the New Moon in Libra, following an opposition to Uranus.

Cairns in Bristol, VT by Harmony Hansen

I would anticipate the possibility of unusual beginnings. What could that mean in your situation?

This Libra New Moon brings our focus to relationship. Each New Moon offers a time of beginnings. Are you available for a surprising new relationship? Is there something exciting that you want to begin within a current relationship?

Ask for what you want; you may be surprised at what is available.

On Tuesday, you are able to speak your mind in a way that others will hear without defensiveness. Saying what you need to say may open the relationship in question to new possibilities.

On Thursday, passion, intensification, and empowerment are on display. Where do you feel the flow of empowerment in your life or situation?

On Friday and Saturday, your dreams seek your attention. Your dreams, values, and opinions are deeply energized and activated. What action is calling you?

On Sunday, you will need an easy morning for rest and recuperation.

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.




Monday, October 12, 2015:

The week begins with emotional intensity as the Moon comes into contact with both Pluto and Uranus. You may feel a sense of intensity and struggle that brings your attention back to the most powerful issues that have driven your life forward since early 2012.

You may need to re-examine a mistake, miscalculation, or a plan that went awry over the past few years. Look clearly at that issue, admit any mistakes, see what you have learned, and contemplate the way forward.

Try to understand how that difficulty brought you to the important place you find yourself now.

At 8:06 PM EDT, the Moon conjunct the Sun at 19° Libra; this begins a New Lunar Cycle. If you perform New Moon Rituals, wait until after 8:06 PM EDT. Your efforts will be more effective and powerful following the exact conjunction.

The start of this Lunar Cycle brings the opportunity for new beginnings in intimate relationships. This could indicate a new relationship or a new path within a current relationship.

This New Moon cycle could also relate to financial issues. If you are not expending your energy toward intimate relationship, this may be a time for new beginnings in how you make or manage your resources or money.

Whatever seeds you choose to plant in the fertile soil of this new cycle have great intensity to support their future growth.

“If your forever was ending tomorrow, would this be how you’d want to have spent it? Listen, the truth is, nothing is guaranteed. So, don’t be afraid. Be alive.” ~ Sarah Dessen




Tuesday, October 13, 2015:

Following Monday’s New Moon, Tuesday will bring calm and a pause in problematic emotions. No high expectations on Tuesday.

Occupy yourself with watering the seeds you planted at the New Moon. In general, this is a day for rest; however, it is not too late to plant seeds if you didn’t actually do it on Monday.

Early Tuesday morning, Mercury (finally moving direct) forms a sextile aspect to Saturn. This should be a good day for saying goodbye to people or projects that are no longer useful in your life. Somehow, the language of releasing comes more easily than usual.

Freedom calls you and you are able to articulate clearly and with kindness your path forward. On Tuesday, keep your eyes open for opportunities to structure and understand more about the reality of your current circumstance.

This is a day when you are able to see a new perspective that may deeply support your path forward.

At 5:39 PM EDT, the Moon enters Scorpio leaving behind our desire to be ‘nice’ and moving us into a deeper more powerful state of emotional awareness.

“You are today where your thoughts have brought you; you will be tomorrow where your thoughts take you.” ~ James Allen

Wednesday, October 14, 2015:

Wednesday is an interesting day with plenty of emotional activity. The Moon is in Scorpio which offers a state of deep emotional contemplation.

Within the context of this deep emotional energy, the Moon brings aspects of ease, flow, opportunity, and possibility to the table.

This is not a day to stand still. This is a day to pay attention to what is traditionally hidden. Some great opportunities may arise out of areas you would least expect them.

Don’t shy away from conversations that may not be polite or expected. Go ahead and engage in conversations about the deeper spaces of being human. Talk about sex, death, and anything else that causes your deep personal values to painfully bump up against others values.

It makes me think of a podcasts called: ‘Sex Out Loud’! Yes, give yourself permission to talk about sex, death, and money… out loud! It is interesting that these issues, so crucial to the happiness in our lives, are kept hidden and conversations about them kept so hush-hush.

Look at our common humanity. Break a taboo, at least in your conversations!

“There is a crack in everything. That’s how the light gets in.” ~ Leonard Cohen




Thursday, October 15, 2015:

Once again, those issues that we normally don’t talk about are being called to the table! The Moon, still in Scorpio, is VOC* all day. Perhaps, your contemplation from Wednesday become more internalized on Thursday.

At 11:35 PM EDT, Mars trine Pluto. This may push you to look squarely in the face of any power dynamics in your relationships. Get clear about where you wield power over others or where others have power over you.

Get very clear about how you want to manage your own power or how you want to respond to any misuse of power by others. The cycle between Mars and Pluto began in November 2014. The cycle between these two malefics brings powerful and intense energies, indeed!

Consider what began in November, demanded action in March, and came into clarity in mid-July. This has been a difficult issue for you.

Now, with the trine between these planets you are able to understand where you have been with this cycle and you are able to bring your understanding to others.

You have learned something here that someone in your life needs to hear about. Share what you have learned.

Thursday is a day of great empowerment. If you want to accomplish something, today you will get it done.

Because of the VOC* Moon, it would be best to put your energy into a project you will complete by the end of the day, something that does not have a future agenda attached to it. One bite; get it done

“Happiness is not having what you want. It is appreciating what you have.”

~ Unknown




Friday, October 16, 2015:

After Thursday’s full day of VOC* Moon, Friday brings an energy of exploration and fun with the Moon in Sagittarius. She is fully engaged with Mercury, Venus, Saturn, and Neptune.

Spend time looking forward; exploring options and dreaming big.

Friday evening offers an interesting perspective on your life and situation. This would be an easy energy to misuse this evening. It would be wise to avoid the temptation of mind-altering substances including, but not limited to, alcohol.

Venus opposes Neptune brings your attention to a dream that you have been enamored of on since the beginning of February 2015.

At this point in time, that dream is as fully realized as it ever will be. It would be a good idea this weekend to touch, (or even push) , on that dream. With Neptune involved, clarity is not solid or predictable. However, the full energy is now released.

The dream, in the direction you began it in February, will not go any further than it is now. Enjoy what has been built. It will be time to embark on a new dream in early Spring 2016. You will begin to see the glimmers of that new transcendent path in early January.

Enjoy where you are now. This could be an evening of exploring fantasies, losing yourself to music, dance, sex, or mystical realms of all kinds. Allow a gentle surreal light to shine within you.

If something seems too good to be true, it probably is. Understand that what is real may be well hidden by those rose colored glasses.

Don’t make any promises you are not sure you can keep. There may be an unseen space between reality and what you see. This should be a great night for fantasy play of all types.

“Be strong enough to let go and patient enough to wait for what you deserve.” ~ Unknown

Saturday, October 17, 2015:

Saturday brings another active day of exploration and internal excitement. The afternoon could bring surprises and unexpected perspectives on your situation or your own inner patterns of behavior.

Saturday evening, Mars conjunct Jupiter at 6:39 PM EDT. This starts a new cycle of bringing activity and passion to your beliefs and opinions.

You could find yourself hotly debating or defending your opinions. In the process of this hot debate or defense, you may discover your own beliefs and opinions changing direction.

Allow yourself to change your mind. Allow yourself to have new opinions; do not let your ego hold tightly to what your deeper self knows needs to be released. Bring fresh new ideas to your opinions.

“Sometimes the most valuable lessons come from people who didn’t intend to give them. ~ Unknown




Sunday, October 18, 2015:

Sunday looks like a great date day for rest. Following a sextile to the Libra Sun while we sleep, the Moon is VOC* in Sagittarius until she enters Capricorn at 2:53 PM EDT.

Enjoy a slow leisurely start to the day.

This was an intense week, anticipate an easier week next week.

If you have any serious home projects or preparations for winter, this afternoon should be perfect. Don’t try to get started too early, rest and take care of yourself in the morning but then turn your full attention to productivity.

“A life spent making mistakes is not only more honorable, but more useful than a life spent doing nothing.” ~ George Bernard Shaw


This week: The VOC* Moon!

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. These times are ideally suited for rest and contemplation.

Block off these times in your schedule and avoid making significant decisions or working on important projects during these times. During VOC* Moon, focus on routine tasks. You will be surprised at how this one change will smooth the edges of your life!

Do you have questions about what is appropriate to do or not do during the VOC* moon? A simple way to think about it is to ask a simple question: Do I hope that this activity will amount to something? If the activity does not need to amount to anything, go ahead with it!

If you have an expectation or desire that this action is going to amount to something, do not do it while the Moon is VOC*. Think about the time you bought a book you were certain you were going to love and you never could finish it! Think about the time you bought the perfect article of clothing that you ended up never wearing. That is the Moon VOC*!

Monday, October 12, 2015, the Moon is VOC* (in Libra) following a conjunction to the Sun at 8:06 PM EDT until she enters Scorpio on Tuesday, October 13, at 5:39 PM EDT.

Wednesday, October 14, 2015, the Moon is VOC* (in Scorpio) following a sextile to Jupiter at 8:58 PM EDT until she enters Sagittarius on Friday, October 16, at 5:19 AM EDT.

Sunday, October 18, 2015, the Moon is VOC* (in Sagittarius) following a sextile to the Sun at 4:49 AM EDT until she enters Capricorn at 2:53 PM EDT.

* 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.
