DETERMINATION MEETS CONFUSION

Monday, February 27, 2017:

Don’t expect to settle into calm terrain yet! When impulsive, possibly angry, Mars opposes expansive Jupiter at 9:24 AM EST, the challenges of last week are ratcheted up. There is an overabundance of heat and powerful determination.

With the Moon still in Pisces, you may feel unclear and even confused by the circumstances and shifting events of the past five days. Whatever wake-up call or shocking revelation you have had is going to take some time and inner work to process.

When the sensitive Pisces Moon conjunct Chiron at 1:09 PM EST, you will seek a silent place of healing. Take yourself and your process seriously; go inward even as you support those you love.

With the Moon square Saturn at 6:07 PM EST, you may feel the need for time alone. Respect that for yourself and others.

At 11:51 PM EST, the Moon releases her elusive sensitivity as she enters dynamic, independent Aries. You will be ready to face a new day on Tuesday.

The Pisces Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 6:07 PM EST until she interested Aries at 11:51 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.

 

 

 

BOLD COURAGEOUS LOVE

Tuesday, February 28, 2017:

Finally, we are offered a day of astrological calm on Tuesday. Perhaps, calm is a relative term when the emotional Moon, romantic Venus, defiant Uranus, and dynamic Mars are all in Aries, the sign of impulsive determination. Wow. That is a lot of assertiveness that is bubbling alongside the soft sensitivity of the Sun, Mercury, and Neptune all in Pisces. You cannot really believe all that you see (fake news indeed).

Even with all of this as we come off the past week’s intensity, we will take this moment to breath and relax. The only major aspect throughout the day is the Moon conjunct Venus at 9:54 PM EST.

Consider your most deeply held values; contemplate your own pursuit of love, money, and beauty. Go to bed early, make love with your partner or connect with your own self-love.

Understand that there is boldness and courage in your engagement in love at this time.

SIDESTEP HOTSPOTS

Wednesday, March 1, 2017:

Wednesday begins with the aggressive Aries Moon having difficult conversations with obsessive Pluto, anxiety producing Uranus, Jupiter (the planet that simply enlarges whatever picture we are looking at), and aggressive Mars. It is a good idea to carefully observe your own emotional triggers and sidestep other people’s hotspots. This is not a day to speak your mind or engage in difficult conversations. No one will win.

At 9:19 PM EST, the Aries Moon forms a stabilizing trine to steadfast Saturn calming us in time for sleep.

At 9:43 PM EST, you are certainly ready to drift into dreamland, spend time in meditation, or pour yourself an extra glass or two of wine. Your perspective of the circumstances you find yourself in may be highly distorted. Find a way to express your most creative imagination and get a good night’s sleep. Keep your notebook handy to write down your dreams when you wake up on Thursday morning.

The Aries Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 9:19 PM EST until she enters Taurus at 2:43 AM EST on Thursday morning.

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 WITH KINDNESS

Thursday, March 2, 2017:

By the time you wake up on Thursday morning, the Moon is in Taurus, which you would normally expect to bring solid relief to all the intensity we are living in.

However, with Jupiter now opposing Uranus, whatever you are expecting will be larger and more exciting (or disastrous) than you anticipate. You have the sense of desperately wanting to break free of limitations and restrictions and are highly aware of the most positive as well as the most negative expression of future possibilities.

I encourage you to watch the reflection and the rumbling changes of these energies in your personal life as well as within our culture, our government and the world.

Wherever you find yourself, be an example of calm, open-hearted love, kindness and acceptance. Don’t let yourself get caught up in your own situation so much that you miss the opportunity to make significant, deep connection with others. We are all in need of an extra dose of kindness. Be that example in the world, show the love in your heart.

 

 

 

SIMPLY REST

Friday, March 3, 2017:

Friday presents us with a quiet day of rest. Following a smooth, easy trine aspect to Pluto at 10:20 AM EST, the solid Taurus Moon is VOC until 5:06 AM EST Saturday morning. VOC stands for void of course, meaning that the Moon has made its final major aspect while in one sign until it enters the next sign.

In other words following her conversation with Pluto, she doesn’t speak to any of the other planets until she enters Gemini early Saturday. This slows down all activity and gives us time to rest.

The intense energies of these past weeks have us all on edge; and no, it is not over. For Friday, allow yourself to take a break. Go home after work, cook a nice meal and spend time doing something that simply makes you happy. Take a bath; give your lover massage. Rest.

The Taurus Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 10:20 AM EST until she enters Gemini at 5:06 AM EST on Saturday morning.

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.

VENUS RETROGRADE – WHAT DO YOU VALUE?

Saturday March 4, 2017:

By the time you wake up Saturday morning, the Moon will be in Gemini encouraging conversation, friendliness, and curiosity.

The important thing this week occurs on Saturday as Venus turns retrograde at 4:09 AM EST. She will remain retrograde until April 15th. This is an important period of time. Pay careful attention. Venus goes retrograde approximately every 2 years. As with any retrograde, it is important to refrain from forward motion regarding the issues related to the planet involved.

Venus represents the things we value most dearly, our love relationships, money, art, romance, and beauty. Venus represents our deepest personal values. During this time, it is important to go inward and get crystal clear on the things that you value most highly in your life.

Don’t be surprised if past lovers show up on your doorstep or in your FB feed. What do you need to revisit from the past? What can you learn by looking at what you have valued in the past?

Consider carefully what is of the highest value in your life. Consider that what is in your life has higher value than you may know. Consider what it would take for you to be deeply satisfied. Could you be satisfied exactly where you find yourself?

This is a time of contemplation, not forward motion on these issues.  Do not, I repeat, DO NOT start a new romantic relationship or make new financial investments.

 

 

 

ACTION TO STABILIZE

Sunday, March 5, 2017:

Sunday brings a very active Gemini Moon offering you many opportunities for connections, conversations, and engagement with friends and family.

Early in the morning, before you head into all that activity, there may be some challenge as you are simply not sure which way to turn. Once you determine the direction and take action to move forward, the day will smooth out.

At 6:32 AM EST, the chatty Gemini Moon squares the passive Pisces Sun. You will want the action of the day to be something that moves forward the intension you set in motion, or the seed you planted at the New Moon last weekend.

At 3:45 PM EST, assertive Mars forms a pleasing trine aspect to steady Saturn. This will assist in accomplishments coming easily and hard work moving smoothly. As you push forward into the future, you feel deeply supported by structure and stabilization. This is a day when your communications can help to stabilize your actions.

Bring folks together to get a project done that involves both intellect and physical action. Enjoy time spent with friends accomplishing projects and taking action to move your life forward.

__________________________________________________________
* 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.

 

Astrolore’s Weekly Astrology Weather: February 20, 2017 through February 26, 2017

There’s a lot of activity this week. Keep your eyes open, Pay attention to your environment and what it is asking of you. On Sunday, we have a Full Moon Solar Eclipse at 9:53 AM EST at 8° Pisces. Remember, eclipses are game changers. How is your life shifting beneath your feet? Pay attention.

EXCITEMENT AND POSSIBILITY

Monday, February 20, 2017:

The Sagittarius Moon is having conversations of excitement and ease with assertive Mars, conversational Mercury, revolutionary Uranus, and expansive Jupiter! All of this before noon!

Please, get up early and get on with this day. There is great activity and shifting perspectives will be available. This should be a great morning for planning or implementing a road trip or in some way expanding your world-view.

Given all the activity and excitement, do keep your feet firmly anchored on the ground. At 6:37 PM EST, you may encounter restriction or have to face reality on an issue you were hoping to avoid.

As you are heading toward sleep on Monday night, you may be blindsided by excitement or anxiety. You may receive a message, hear or read something that activates your thinking in a way that makes falling asleep challenging!

If there is a conversation that you need to have or something you need to research, you may as well stay up late.

Some idea or conversation is offered that may change the fabric of your thinking over the coming weeks. At 11:01 PM EST, Mercury, the planet that represents our thoughts and communication forms a sextile aspect to Uranus, the awakener. Perhaps, there is something that needs to be released unexpectedly in order for deeper understanding and a new idea to be birthed in late March.

The Sagittarius Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 6:37 PM EST until she enters have Capricorn at 2:07 AM EST in the wee hours of Tuesday morning. 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.

 

 

IDEALISM AND HOPE

Tuesday, February 21, 2017:

When you wake on Tuesday, the Moon is in ambitious Capricorn encouraging you to engage in mature, responsible activities. The serious Capricorn Moon stabilizes the idealism of Pisces as a sextile aspect forms between the Moon and the Sun (in Pisces) at 8:16 AM EST. Get to work early and plan on making great strides of accomplishment. You have the stamina to maintain a powerful work ethic and focus throughout Tuesday.

Keep exerting pressure on the focused maturity of your effort.

At 1:27 PM EST, a flowing trine aspect forms between mental Mercury and expansive Jupiter. Think back to an idealistic view or idea that began to take hold between August and October of 2016. That idea has been mightily challenged, has had space to grow, and now flourishes. Open your mind to idealism and hope.

POWER DYNAMICS

Wednesday, February 22, 2017:

Please keep in mind that fighting battles that you have no control over the outcome and simply cannot win will simply drain you and leave you mentally and emotionally vulnerable.

A square aspect formed between two plants represents a challenge. The energies of the two plants involved are working at cross-purposes. On Wednesday, a square aspect forms between aggressive Mars and obsessive Pluto. This holds a powerful shadow over much of the week, but watch most closely for it on Wednesday.

Understand that this suggests a high potential for conflict, anger, and power struggles.

Consider where you can best direct your warrior spirit. Make a constructive difference in your world with this powerful energy. Dynamic Mars squares the hidden forces of coercive Pluto at 4:02 AM EST.

Focus your attention on what you can change. Go inward and get clear about your responsibilities and consciously consider where you can direct your energy for the greater good of all. Beating your head against the wall is not useful; try gathering like-minded folks together to discuss current events.

The start of this cycle was on October 19, 2016. Watch the political drama that is playing out!

The Capricorn Moon takes everything seriously and also forms difficult aspects to angry Mars, unsettling Uranus, and powerful Pluto. This is a challenging day, use it well, and with respect and caution.

The Capricorn Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 10:24 PM EST until she enters Aquarius at 12:18 PM EST on Thursday afternoon. 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.

 

 

SPEAK UP

Thursday, February 23, 2017:

Thursday morning, you will most likely still be in the grip of the challenges that Wednesday’s aspect of Mars square Pluto brought. Don’t miss your daily meditation practice. It will serve you well.

At 12:18 PM EST, the Moon (the holder of our ‘feeling nature’) enters unemotional Aquarius. This will bring the relief of a cool detachment. Any emotional intensity held over from Wednesday can now wash away, being replaced with a more intellectual, detached perspective.

Aquarius allows us to see the world objectively enabling us to plan accordingly. We see the big picture as we plan humanitarian rebellion. Watch what is happening around the world. There is instability that demands that we each look at the bigger picture and join together with others to plan accordingly.

Mercury (currently in Aquarius) is the planet of thinking and communicating. At 4:45 PM EST, Mercury sextile serious Saturn. A sextile aspect is an opportunity.

Generally speaking, we want to say yes to the opportunities that a sextile presents. This opportunity is one of speaking your mind. If there is something you need to say, now is the time to say it. This is a wonderful aspect for writers, speakers, or anyone who has something to say!

The Capricorn Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) until she enters Aquarius at 12:18 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.

 

 

HOW CAN YOU HELP?

Friday, February 24, 2017:

Finally, we come to a day that offers simplicity.  The Moon continues through objective and rebellious Aquarius. Your ideas and emotions continue their focus on the needs of the larger culture. When the Moon is in Aquarius, we are able to see outside of ourselves to the issues that impact humanity at large.

At 10:41 AM EST, when the Moon forms a sweet sextile to lovely Venus, the planet of beauty and love, our hearts open to the harshness in the state of our world. You are able to see into the eyes of those less fortunate and seek ways to be of help.

Your task for Friday is to find an avenue to direct your attention, efforts, and money to help the world outside of your little personal bubble.

MORNING PLEASURES

Saturday February 25, 2017:

Get up early on Saturday morning and gather together with friends or family. This is a lovely day with positive aspects to assertive Mars, unusual Uranus, expansive Jupiter, and stabilizing Saturn. You will be able to get a lot accomplished or simply have a lot of fun during the bulk of the day.

Things change when, at 6:07 PM EST, mental Mercury follows the Sun into dreamy, mystical Pisces and the Moon follows on its heels at 7:25 PM EST. We now have a serious pile-up of planets in sensitive Pisces.  With our focus on the surreal Pisces energy, you may struggle to understand what is nearly unknowable.

What is under the surface of your life that you cannot quite see? Perhaps, it shows up as a vague shadow. What are you unable to see clearly? Taking time in meditation over the coming days will be highly valuable.

We are also in the Dark of the Moon as we approach the New Moon and Solar Eclipse which will be exact on Sunday morning. Go inward for understanding; there is more intensity right around the corner. It is important to strengthen your soul’s purpose and direction.

The Aquarius Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 1:12 PM EST until she enters Pisces at 7:25 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.

 

 

PISCES NEW MOON – SOLAR ECLIPSE

Sunday, February 26, 2017:

Sunday is a significant day! First, we have the New Moon and Solar Eclipse at 9:59 AM EST. You may feel plunged into darkness and confusion. Do not despair. Keep your eyes open, allow inspiration and transcendent mysteries to be revealed. It may be difficult to see fantasy from reality so allow yourself to hold a soft focus.

This is not a day to make solid decisions, and not a day to allow yourself to get lost in confusion or escape. Hold steady. Spend time in meditation, creating art, listening to music, or opening your heart to compassion.

Eclipses open new doorways, they can put our feet on a new and unexpected pathway. Life can change on a dime.

Accentuating all of that is the conjunction between Mars and Uranus at 7:19 PM EST. This begins a two-year cycle of assertive, revolutionary change. This aspect occurs at 22° Aries. To understand where in your personal life this change, begin by looking to where 22° Aries falls in your natal chart. If you want to understand more about your personal chart, please contact me for a consultation (astrolore@gmail.com). You will learn a great deal about yourself and your path forward.

Profil Neu by Roger David Servais via Wiki Commons

Some of us may experience the shift of the Sun from Pisces to Aries as a bit disorienting. We go from the energy of dreams, imagination, and sensitivity to the energy of aggression, determination, and of the warrior.

As we attempt to grapple with this shift, Mercury follows the example of the Sun and steps from Pisces into Aries on Monday evening. You may feel this as an awakening of energy, the experience of Spring. It is time to create what you want and take the necessary steps to bring that into reality.

On Wednesday, we have a Full Moon Eclipse in Libra encouraging us to take stock of what we created and began at the New Moon on March 8th.

On Friday, Saturn takes his first steps in retreat as he turns retrograde at 6:01 AM EDT.

 

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.
THOUGHTS PICK UP SPEED

Monday, March 21, 2016:

Don’t be surprise if you feel like keeping your head under your pillow on Monday morning. It’s not that you have any sense of waking up to a bad day but you may wake with a sense of confusion or disorientation.

Now that the Sun is in Aries, you probably thought you were ready to move quickly in a forward direction. However, the day starts with the Moon in opposition to Neptune along with Mercury still in Pisces. These two factors contribute to a sense of internal instability that is likely to leave you wanting sleep…. Or just not knowing what you want!

Don’t let any of that worry you.

At 8:19 PM EDT, Mercury follows the Sun into Aries. Your mind will be ready to move forward, your thoughts will pick up speed, and everything revs up. It is easy to offend others while Mercury is in Aries, as we do not hold back in our communications and are willing to take the risk to tell it like it is!

Maintain your awareness and make sure you are saying what really needs to be said and not just running off at the mouth because of lack of control. Remain aware, keep yourself centered and grounded, even as this energy catapults you forward.
PREPARE FOR WEDNESDAY’S ECLIPSE

Tuesday, March 22, 2016:

Tuesday provides a day of rest. Yes, I know. You thought you were ready to move forward. However, today you need to rest and prepare for the very busy day on Wednesday.

The Moon is in Virgo throughout the day, yet makes no major aspects until after she enters Libra on Wednesday morning. Try not to concern yourself with accomplishments, communications, or any activity that you hope will move some project forward.

As you take the time to rest in the quiet of Tuesday, prepare yourself for tomorrow’s Lunar Eclipse. Consider the Solar Eclipse that happened on March 8th. Eclipses always come in pairs and are connected; a Solar Eclipse occurs at a New Moon and a Lunar Eclipse occurs at the Full Moon.

Are you aware of the change that is sweeping through your life, brought on by that Solar Eclipse? Much of the message of the Lunar Eclipse is in digging deeply to work with the underlying issues that must be addressed in order to grow in the direction of change that the Solar Eclipse.

This is your contemplation for Tuesday.

LIBRA LUNAR ECLIPSE – NOSTALGIA ALLOWS RELEASE

Wednesday, March 23, 2016:

At 1:24 AM EDT, the Moon enters Libra bringing an end to that time of rest and preparation that we talked about for Tuesday. Now, it is show time!

At 6:15 AM EDT, Jupiter squares Saturn. This can be a challenging time as the details of a particular situation may feel like they are overtaking or blocking your ability to expand your understanding and make it difficult to keep a grasp onyour own beliefs.

You may question ways of thinking and being in the world that previously felt very solid to you. It is important to continually question your opinions and beliefs as time and circumstances continue to show you new perspectives.

The Libra Full Moon is eclipsed at 8:01 AM EDT. Lunar Eclipses bring our emotions and nostalgia to the surface even as they push our awareness to the passage of time. Something is changing and we must let go. Even if the change is one we have hoped and dreamed of for so long, there still may be difficult emotions to manage as you release the past. Past memories and old dreams come to the surface in order to be released.

With the Libra Moon forming an opposition to Mercury, you may be highly sensitive to any communications that feel out of balance or unfair. You will do well to maintain grace and diplomacy in any such situation.

At 4:10 PM EDT, Mercury conjunct the Sun offers clarity of mind, thinking, and communication. This may be a time of sharp tongues; remember to add the ingredients of grace and diplomacy in all communications.
MOVE YOUR STORY FORWARD

Thursday, March 24, 2016:

Thursday may be a stressful day of assimilating the emotional impact of Wednesday. The Libra Moon, which is concerned with diplomacy and pleasure, forms challenging aspects with both Pluto (the planet of transformation) and Uranus (the planet of revolution).

This startling transit may push you to look beneath the pleasant exterior of your significant relationships. What is hidden beneath the surface and needs to change? Have you been too careful? Have you done your best to hold the status quo steady? What revolutionary thoughts and ideas are occurring behind-the-scenes in the depth of your heart?

At 6:44 PM EDT, Mercury forms a flowing trine aspect to Mars. This is a powerful encouragement to say what needs to be said; a push to telling a story that will make a significant point. Your words will be clear and direct.

With both Mercury and Mars in Fire Signs, conversations could become heated. Whatever is said will have an impact and will move the story-line forward. You may be surprised to hear your own words.
EXPRESS BEAUTY & GENEROSITY

Friday, March 25, 2016:

Early Friday morning, Saturn turns retrograde at 16° Sagittarius. He will remain retrograde until August 13, 2016 when he will turn direct once again at 9° Sagittarius. During this time, we each have the opportunity to look at the issues in our lives connected to boundaries, responsibilities, self-discipline, and hard work.

This is a time of reassessing, and coming to a deeper understanding and acceptance, of our responsibilities. If you have personal planets or points between 9° and 16° of any mutable sign, (Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, Pisces), this will be particularly significant to you.

On Wednesday, we talked about you feeling blocked in the ability to expand your inner awareness. As Venus connects with both Jupiter and Saturn on Friday, you may feel a powerful desire for beauty and pleasure along with a sense of dissatisfaction and frustration at feeling that growth is somehow blocked for you now.

Pay attention to how you relate to beauty. It may be time to explore ways to embody love, pleasure, beauty, and abundance within your own body, mind, and life. Create a place of beauty in your home. Make a special effort to show generosity. Put a vase of flowers on your kitchen table and one by your bed, and while you are at it, bring another bouquet to a friend. Notice how life expands when you create space for the expression of beauty and generosity.

You may be questioning ways of thinking and being in the world that previously felt very solid to you. It is important to continually question your opinions and beliefs as time and circumstances continue to show you new perspectives. For now, embrace a perspective that soothes your heart with love, music, art, inner beauty, and expansive generosity.

At 2:09 PM EDT, the Moon enters Scorpio bringing us into a deeply emotion space along with and an intense desire for connection. Find deep connection with an intimate friend or lover this Friday night.

LOVE & PASSION

Saturday, March 26, 2016:

On Saturday, you can expect to feel the full energizing passion of Aries. At 6:32 AM EDT, the Sun in Aries forms a free-flowing trine to Mars in Sagittarius! There is excitement in the air and you may feel willing to take on any challenge that presents it self; immediately on the heels of that blast of energy we encounter a sextile aspect between Venus and Pluto. This brings the energy to a decidedly intimate, potentially sexual encounter.

Financial opportunities may also present themselves. Say yes.

Consider back to what began in early February regarding a love relationship or a financial situation. Whatever began at that time, now you have the opportunity to explore the possibilities more deeply and move toward your goal.

The Scorpio Moon forms a beautiful trine aspect to Neptune and a sextile aspect to Jupiter. Your soul wants to make intense and beautiful connections with other beautiful souls. Opportunities are presented and the energy flows. What a wonderful night for deep love, passion, beauty, and abundance.
REST IN QUIET REFLECTION

Sunday, March 27, 2016:

Sunday should provide the perfect day to recover from the delights that I hope you encountered last night. The energy of passion, love, and abundance continues into the day. The Scorpio Moon is very quiet throughout the day, providing us the opportunity to slow down, take some time for quiet reflection, and rest.

I recommend a late brunch with a lover or intimate friends, and a movie to round out the weekend. Embrace the depth of sweetness that is presented.

There are those of you who may not resonate with the fiery energy of this weekend and those of you who may be angry that you have no one to share the passion with. If you find yourself feeling angry, understand that as a manifestation of passion. Utilize the assertiveness in a physical way by biking, running, dancing… whatever will release the tension.

Astrolore sends love to all of you!

I think it is safe to say that we can anticipate a very active week!

Kiel de Dos by Alexandra Nereiev via Wiki Commons

With Mercury square Saturn on Monday, sextile Pluto and opposing Jupiter on Tuesday, and then conjunct Chiron on Thursday, the planet of quick motion and thinking is highly engaged throughout the week. If you are waiting for calm, quiet days, you may have to wait for a while. Expect ideas and thinking to be overly active and moving in many directions at once.

Jupiter makes a glorious trine to Pluto on Wednesday bringing a flow of opportunity and empowerment. Thursday morning you will want to pay special attention to your meditation, as there is the suggestion of deep healing within the mind as Mercury conjunct Chiron.

On Sunday, the Sun enters Aries and we herald in the Spring Equinox. This is a moment we look forward to as it heralds the moment of Spring! This brings us to the pivotal moment in the year when day equals night; when the light and dark equalize. You can feel it in the air, hear it in the songbirds, and see it in the quality of light.

We all breathe a sign of relief.


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.

Together, we will work with your individual horoscope to explore your hopes, dreams, goals, your current path, and the reality of your life purpose.

SERIOUS MIND; SERIOUS COMMUNICATIONS

Monday, March 14, 2016:

The week begins with the Moon in Gemini, echoing the activity within our minds even as we begin the week. At 3:25 PM EDT, Mercury squares Saturn. When these two planets come together, the mind or what the mind perceives becomes serious. Responsibility cannot be ignored, and you may encounter some type of restriction to your ideas or your thinking. Perhaps, there is fear around some communication that you know is necessary.

This is the First Quarter Square in the cycle between Mercury and Saturn. Something that began back in November 2015 is requiring that you give it attention and take action on it now. Did you start a new study, a new serious conversation, or did you take on a new responsibility at that time? If so, now is the time to push that agenda forward in a direct manner. The full results of the action you take now will be fully expressed in June.

Venus squares Mars on Monday afternoon as well. An important thing to understand when Venus squares Mars is that you need to do something concrete to bring your primary relationship forward. What does your relationship need now? If you are not in a primary relationship, you can use this aspect to care for your primary relationship to yourself or to take direct action in seeking out a partner. If you are in a primary relationship (or in the process of developing one you would like to see thrive), there are things that must be shared and things you need to say that have not yet been said.

Yes, there is a risk involved. However, not saying what needs to be said will extract a high cost and will not reflect reality.

Pay attention to any issues that come up between you and a partner over the next day or two. Do not underestimate the importance of how you both manage your communications.

 

GO AHEAD AND SAY IT

Tuesday, March 15, 2016:

Before you even wake up this morning, there are two major aspects in the heavens. At 2:58 AM EDT, Mercury sextile Pluto, suggesting an opportunity of empowerment is able to come out of the challenging thoughts or communications you had on Monday.

Perhaps, there is some deep problematic thinking that you are being asked to release. Keep your eyes open and let go of thoughts that are holding you back. Whatever is released now will open your ability to bring your true gifts into the world.

Mercury opposes Jupiter at 5:41 AM EDT, suggesting clarity on what began in early August 2015. This is a cycle of expanding your thinking and your ability to communicate. There is still more that needs to be said. Yes, go ahead and say it. It is okay. It is necessary.

Tuesday also brings us to the First-Quarter Moon, asking that we consider what needs to be done to move forward with the seed you planted at the New Moon on March 8th.

Yes, the First-Quarter Moon is a square between the Sun and Moon, and generally, feels restrictive and heavy. You may feel this as a sense of desiring something that is totally incompatible with something else that you deeply need; this often shows up as a conflict between our desires and our needs.

Finding balance may be a challenge. In case of interpersonal conflict, pay attention. Is this really an external conflict with another or is it an internal conflict that you are projecting onto a relationship? Be honest with yourself.

At 8:57 PM EDT, the Moon enters Cancer offering the simplicity of love at the end of a deeply stressful day. Rest in comfort, allowing love to open your heart.

 

POSSIBILITY, WONDER, & MAGIC

Wednesday, March 16, 2016:

Take advantage of the powerful, expansive energies available during the middle of this week. At 4:05 PM EDT, Jupiter, the planet of luck and expansion forms a free-flowing trine aspect to Pluto, the energy of divinity and empowerment.

At this time, you are more capable than you know of bringing full manifestation into an area you have invested great energy into. You may feel powerful, capable, and even lucky at this time. Do not wait passively for this transit to activate your life. Get out into the world, reach for what your heart desires and be ready to accept what is given.

Consider your strengths and what you have to offer the world. Understand that as you help others, so you help yourself. Go out in the world today and offer your best actions for the future of humankind, even if that consists only of showing kindness to the grocery clerk or the homeless person on the street.

Synchronicity and surprising incidents may support you in ways that are unexpected or even jaw dropping. If you have personal planets or angles between 15° and 18° of any earth sign (Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn), this will be most auspicious in your circumstances and life.

Think back to what you acquired understanding about during the time between the Summer of 2013 & Spring of 2014. Now is the time to bring that knowledge into a fuller experience of your life; what can you now teach others that you learned at that time? Understand the importance of what you bring to the table and freely teach what you deeply understand.

Keep yourself open to possibilities, wonder, and magic.

 

DISRUPT NEGATIVE HABITS WITH LOVE

Thursday, March 17, 2016:

On Thursday, you will want to focus your attention on releasing and healing negative thought patterns. Mercury conjunct Chiron at 9:28 AM EDT; this begins a cycle of healing deeply negative patterns that have taken root in your mind since childhood.

In order to work effectively with this opportunity, it is important to maintain deep love and compassion for yourself and the reasons you built these patterns in the first place.

Chances are that the patterns were formed in early childhood as a way to protect your self. That protection is no longer needed and the pattern left behind is now holding you back. Look deeply and release.

Firmly embedded patterns in your mind took time to build and will take time to dismantle. Perhaps, the first step is to begin that meditation practice you have talked about for so long. In this process, you must remember love and compassion to the self.

Thursday’s Cancer Moon assists in keeping you close to your heart and your loved ones. Show kindness in all your interactions.

 

DANCE FREELY

Friday, March 18, 2016:

If it were possible for you to take a long weekend, this would be a lovely day to start it. It looks like a delightful weekend ahead. At 3:55 AM EDT, the Moon enters Leo and we are able to leave behind some of the more pressing emotional concerns that have held over since the New Moon and solar eclipse from last week.

Friday is not a day to try to keep yourself to a strict schedule or to be overly concerned with accomplishments or details. This is a day to let loose and move in the direction of what pulls you forward. With the Moon in feisty, playful Leo, forming a free flow of energy (trine) to Mars in Sagittarius this is a time for playful expression, dramatic play, and sheer pleasure.

Don’t take yourself too seriously, and don’t allow yourself to be put into a box that is too tight to fit your expansive nature.

Allow others to express themselves freely by make this a day of no judgment. Yes, dance as if no one were watching… and make space for others to do the same.

PLAYFUL SELF-EXPRESSION

Saturday, March 19, 2016:

More delightful fun, and playful energy continues through Saturday. Get away from your ordinary life this weekend if you can. Saturday is the last full day of the Sun in Pisces. Enjoy the sense of touching on an intangible dream.

A Grand Trine is formed on Saturday between the Moon in Leo, Saturn in Sagittarius, and Uranus in Aries. You will want to take an active role in making sure any needs and desires you have for friendship and socialization get met.

This Grand Fire Trine can reflect a situation in which you expect others to understand your needs (do you really think they can read your mind?) and you could get left out in the cold. If you make it clear that you want the connection, I expect that they will be delighted to include you.

This is not a day to be coy, be clear and direct about your desires. Go for what you want. Seek enthusiasm, warmth, and playful self-expression.

 

SPRING EQUINOX – SUN ENTERS ARIES – AWAKEN

Sunday, March 20, 2016:

On Sunday, be ready to welcome the new astrological year! 😉

The Sun enters Aries (The Spring Equinox) at 12:30 AM EDT and we release the chill of winter to welcome the warmth of Spring. Spring begins (here in the Northern Hemisphere) as we come to this pivotal moment when the length of the day equals the length of the night.

We all breathe a sign of relief with the knowledge that it is time to make a new start and to welcome all new beginnings.

Aries is the sign of the Ram, the first sign of the zodiac, and has the energy of a newborn infant demanding his right to be here in all his fiery glory. Release the inward cold of winter, break the chains that have held you back, and take your first steps forward into the unknown excitement ahead.

‘Spring Fever’ is just around the corner as plants take on vigorous growth and even LOVE is in the air.

Go ahead! This is the time to initiate new endeavors, love affairs, and to simply embrace life on all levels.

Astrolore’s Weekly Astrology Weather: March 7, 2016 through March 13, 2016

We begin the week in the darkest phase of the Moon, preparing for a Pisces New Moon on Tuesday and the full solar eclipse, also on Tuesday!

When the Moon enters Pisces on Monday, she joins both the Sun and Neptune. As we approach the solar eclipse on Tuesday, we may be aware of the need to release something precious in order to achieve something deeply significant in our lives. It is true that in many instances we can have everything we desire, and yet, there are times when choices must be made. It is important to pay attention to the sometimes subtle difference between fantasy and reality. Often times, they can be exactly the opposite of what one would expect.

There is much to say about any solar eclipse. On Tuesday, I will send out an article written by my student Noelle Letteri about eclipses. Stay tuned for that communication.

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.

SEEKING CLARITY

Monday, March 7, 2016:

The week begins in the darkest phase of the Moon. In the astronomical world, this is called the Waning Crescent Moon. Astrologically, it is referred to as the Balsamic Moon. Yes, balsamic, like the vinegar.  🙂

Until the Moon enters Pisces, her movement through Aquarius is cheered by a conjunction with Venus at 3:46 AM EST. As you start the day, take a moment to place your awareness on an understanding of the connection between the Moon and Venus. I think of these two as the representation of the two sides of the Divine Feminine. The Moon represents the mother archetype, the deep, warm, and nurturing aspect of the feminine. Venus, on the other hand, represents the sensual, passionate, and playful expression of the feminine. As they join together, we are asked to open our hearts to deep love and connection that draws on both of these powerful aspects.

At 2:08 PM EST, the Moon joins the Sun and Neptune in Pisces. As we move toward the eclipse and New Moon on Tuesday, things may not be as they appear. Neptune and the sign of Pisces can essentially shroud us in fog.

If passive aggressive behavior or anger of any kind arises, be prepared to meet that energy with kindness and compassion. If you are able to do this, the issue at hand will simply dissolve.

Keep in mind that this is an internal issue, there is no victim; face yourself clearly & show compassion.

 

PISCES NEW MOON & FULL SOLAR ECLIPSE

WELCOME CHANGE

Tuesday, March 8, 2016:

With so much happening on Tuesday, it is hard to know where to begin. At 5:56 AM EST, the Sun opposes Jupiter, asking us to look back to late August 2015. Whatever began in your life at that time, it is now releasing its full creative potential. Consider and give yourself credit for how far you have come.

Tuesday also marks a significant moment in time as we reach the full solar eclipse and the Pisces New Moon occurring at 19° Pisces (8:55 PM EST). A full solar eclipse happens as the Moon comes between our Earth and Sun.

Astrologically, eclipses are considered to bring unexpected changes that push us into much-needed action. Wherever you find 19° Pisces in your chart, it will indicate where you can expect the breaking up of old patterns and major shifting dynamics.

The New Moon is always a time of beginnings; do not underestimate the significance of what you chose to begin at this time. Focus on the area of your life that you know requires the energy of change. To some of you it may seem a bit silly but start to create a New Moon ritual. It can be very simple. Write down on paper what you wish to begin now. What do you want to see increase over the coming months? Have two candles available for your ritual. Light the first candle to represent yourself, just as you are today. Light the second candle as an aspiration of what you want to create. Each day take a moment to focus on yourself as you light the first candle. As you light the second candle, bring the two closer together. At the Full Moon in two weeks, bring them fully together and see the results of what you have created.

Today’s New Moon brings many powerful energies together to support your forward aspirations. The Moon makes contact with Neptune as we bring our awareness to the dream that moves us forward. She then connects with Saturn reminding us that there is hard work involved. Then she connects with Pluto showing us the access we have to deep empowerment. Finally, she makes contact with Jupiter opening our vision to full expansion.

 

HOW TO DEAL WITH CONFLICT

Wednesday, March 9, 2016:

Composition 02 by MedBerkane via Wiki Commons

You should feel some relief on Wednesday morning as the intense energy of Tuesday begins to subside. At 2:40 PM EST, when the Moon enters fiery, assertive Aries, your relief turns into powerful renewed energy for action and accomplishment.

At 4:51 PM EST, with the Aries Moon trine Mars (in Sagittarius); you are ready to take on the world. Please carefully observe and pay close attention to your reactions, as impulsiveness and impatience may result.

If folks you encounter are exhibiting more aggression then you are comfortable with, please show compassion and understanding. This energy is necessary in order to move forward. Obviously, there is a limit to what is okay and what is not. Use your own internal compass to know when to remove yourself from a situation where you or others are a bit too heated up.

A powerful, sexual connection could be a delightful use of this passionate energy. After all, you do know how bonobos (our closest relations) deal with conflict!

 

ACCEPT WHAT IS YOURS

Thursday, March 10, 2016:

Thursday begins with a continuation of the powerful, assertive energy from Wednesday. Late afternoon offers more steadfastness and calm to that energy as Saturn plays nicely with the Moon at 4:36PM EST.

However, Thursday evening could bring you into emotional situations you may not be prepared to handle. The Aries Moon squares Pluto at 6:02 PM EST and conjunct Uranus at 8:43 PM EST.

Allow plans to change without question, allow others to disappoint you.

Find a way to look inside and accept your feelings. It is important to understand that others may disappoint us without it being a personal issue. Everything is not always about US!

This may well be a very challenging evening but with the Sun conjunct Chiron at 11:26 PM EST, we are given the opportunity to bring warm and healing light to a wound at the depth of our soul. Bask in that warmth and allow deep healing. Sleep soundly.

 

REST IN QUIET CALM

Friday, March 11, 2016:

Friday begins with our minds fully immersed in creative imagination. Mercury joins with Neptune, beginning its annual cycle of uplifting our minds to a high state of bliss or is it a state of confusion? Intellectual ruminations may call you down Alice’s rabbit hole. I suggest you simply enjoy the ride.

At 2:44 PM EST, the Moon enters Taurus giving us an opportunity to move into a weekend of relaxation and calm. Don’t plan too many wild adventures over the next few days. Your body and mind really need rest.

Time slows down and you can relax into enjoyments of the senses. Get and give a massage, bake bread, plan your upcoming garden, rejuvenate yourself through silence.

This is a night for calm, quiet, deep love and touch, not the passion of Wednesday night. This connection can produce steady warmth and healing for your soul.

DEEP RESERVOIRS OF GREAT LOVE

Saturday, March 12, 2016:

As Venus leaves Aquarius behind at 5:23AM EST, she joins Neptune, Mercury, Chiron, and the Sun, all in Pisces. This is a powerful line-up of planets in the gentle, sensitive sign of Pisces. Your compassion, imagination, and awareness of suffering are expanded at this time. You may long to merge, and even ‘save’ others in a heightened spiritual manner.

With the Moon still in Taurus, this is a wonderful time for the growth of love and affection in any and all relationships. A lovely Earth Grand Trine forms Saturday evening between the Taurus Moon, Pluto, and Jupiter.

Your physical senses and your awareness of the real practical realities of your life are aligned, sensitive, positive, and deeply empowered. Anticipate tapping into deep reservoirs of great love. Breathe in love and build stores of it deep within your soul.

 

SEEK SOCIAL CONNECTION

Sunday, March 13, 2016:

Sunday begins slowly; you will not be tempted to make any changes to the course of the weekend (as long as you have kept to the program of calm and quiet) until the Moon enters Gemini at 4:04 PM EST.

With the Moon now in chatty, restless Gemini, you have probably fulfilled your need for calm and silence. Now, you will seek social interactions for the late afternoon and evening.

As much as you may need social connections, you may anticipate some stress in relationships. The Moon square Venus and opposing Mars suggests unrest and possible tension. If you spent the majority of the weekend engaged in calm quiet activities, this tension should be relatively easy to manage. Don’t engage with the struggle and it will pass quickly.
