Astrolore’s Weekly Astrology Weather: October 22, 2018 through October 28, 2018

 

 

It is not too late to join Astrolore’s Second Annual Astrology Retreat held in beautiful Vermont NEXT WEEK!

Get all the details here!

Join us for an unforgettable experience of self-discovery and astrological understanding held in beautiful Northern Vermont during the magnificent autumn foliage. Devote a weekend to gaining practical astrological skills and connecting with others.

Come for a day or the whole weekend!

This retreat will benefit folks at all levels of astrological understanding. Beginning, intermediate, and advanced students will come away with increased practical skills and amazing new tools.

I hope to see you there! As always, contact me if you have questions or concerns.

 

We are moving into a very interesting and mostly positive week.

On Tuesday, the Sun leaves relationship-oriented Libra behind to enter the deeply psychological sign of Scorpio. Now, we enter the darkest time of the year as we go deeply inward to find what is below the surface.

That may sound difficult but there are lovely aspects throughout the week that support our ability to communicate, the ability to support and love each other, and the ability to stabilize our lives.

I don’t want to paint too rosy a picture as Tuesday evening brings an opposition from the Sun to Uranus. I like to think of that aspect as bringing great excitement. However, the reality is it could also bring great anxiety. Do your best to direct your days to a search for excitement while maintaining whatever personal practices support stability in your life.

 

YOUR EMPOWERED VOICE

Monday, October 22, 2018:

In the wee hours of the morning, the growing Moon (she will be Full on Wednesday) enters assertive, dynamic Aries. Today also marks the last day with the Sun in peace-loving Libra as the Sun enters Scorpio tomorrow. The Aries Moon offers a fiery, dynamic energy as we approach the intense, internal time of Scorpio Season.

At 3:13 PM EDT, Mercury forms a sweet sextile aspect to Pluto. This suggests that the time has come to speak your mind. What powerful and significant communication have you been sitting on, waiting for just the right time? With Venus still retrograde, perhaps there is some issue from the past that needs to be raised. Your voice (in speech or the written word) may be empowered and strong. Make sure it is kind as well. The important thing is that your intentions are honorable and in the ultimate service of loving kindness.

 

SUN ENTERS SCORPIO – FACING DARKNESS, GOING DEEP

Tuesday, October 23, 2018:

At 7:22 AM EDT, the Sun leaves diplomatic Libra behind and enters the deep, emotional waters of Scorpio where it will remain until November 22nd. During the time that the Sun is in Scorpio, the clocks turn back resulting in more darkness in our lives, we encounter small ghouls on our doorstep seeking treats to keep evil away (Happy Halloween!), and the leaves take leave of the branches of the trees.

Darkness arrives in every corner of our lives. Scorpio asks us to look beneath the surface and uncover what we have kept hidden and secretive in our lives. As we face and look deeply into the eye of darkness, we grow in understanding and compassion. The veil between the world we function in and the world of spirits seems to dissolve during Scorpio season, allowing us to see beyond the boundaries we generally assume are firmly in place.

At 8:46 PM EDT, the Sun opposes Uranus, an aspect that has been building over the past few days. Look to the houses in your chart that hold Scorpio and Taurus to understand where these energies may be playing out in your own life. Expect anxiety or excitement here. The Sun shines its light and brings heat to something unexpected. Watch for unusual issues to be revealed suddenly without warning in your own life and in the social, cultural, and political arenas.

Get outside as much as possible this week. Have you heard of Forest Bathing? In Japanese culture, it is called ‘Shinrin-Yoku”, and is the evidence based activity of immersing in oneself in nature for powerful health benefits.

The Aries Moon is VOC* from 2:18 PM EDT until she enters Taurus on Wednesday morning at 10:33 AM EDT. When the Moon is VOC*, there will be no result from anything that is begun. This simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have any significant future impact.

 

 

TAURUS FULL MOON – ILLUMINATE SENSUALITY AND BEAUTY

Wednesday, October 24, 2018:

Venus has been retrograde in Scorpio since October 5th suggesting a reorientation to deeply personal issues of love and finances. At 8:51 PM EDT, Venus sextiles Saturn.   This offers a possibility and an opportunity to stabilize the intensity of the past few weeks. Look for an opportunity to show love from a powerful stable place in your heart.

When the Moon enters Taurus at 10:33 AM EDT, you can breathe deeply and enjoy a renewed sense of body awareness and appreciation of beauty. The Taurus Full Moon is exact at 12:46 PM EDT.  The Full Moon always give us a chance to open to a clarity that has been a bit subdued since the New Moon two weeks earlier. Because the Full Moon is in the sensual sign of Taurus, this is a day to celebrate all our senses.

Consider each in turn. Celebrate taste, go for comfort food; celebrate sight, notice what is right in front of you; celebrate touch with a massage or simply petting your cat; celebrate smell by paying attention as you cook your meal; celebrate sound as you listen to a child’s voice or your lover speak your name. In all things, this is the day to notice, pay attention, open up to your senses. Remember Forest Bathing (‘Shinrin-Yoku”), you can engage all your senses as you give your body, mind, and soul a tremendous health boost.

The Aries Moon is VOC* until she entries Taurus at 10:33 AM EDT.  When the Moon is VOC*, there will be no result from anything that is begun. This simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have any significant future impact.

AROUSE YOUR SENSES

Thursday, October 25, 2018:

With the Moon in sensual, slow moving Taurus on Thursday, you will be able to experience life though your senses. This is a day to slow down, be quiet and still. There is no need to push yourself in the service of accomplishment or what someone else desires you to do.

Go ahead and indulge your senses with good food, good sex, good music, and a massage. Your senses seek arousal. Get outdoors in nature, walk barefoot on the earth, listen to the trees sing and pay attention to the messages the Earth is constantly offering.

The only bump in the road on Thursday is a square from the Moon to Mars at 6:18 PM EDT. Perhaps, it would be good to spend a portion of the evening on your own to avoid aggravations toward others, or better yet, you could postpone dinner and climb into bed for an energetic roll in the hay! That would provide the energies a direct and forceful way to express themselves and support the higher good of building love.

 

SHINE A LIGHT ON LOVE

Friday, October 26, 2018:

Venus has been working hard (during her retrograde: October 5 – November 16) to focus your attention and have you reconsider your deeply personal issues around love and money. On Friday at 10:16 AM EDT, with the Sun and Venus conjunct at 3° Scorpio, you are able to see something that you have kept hidden from yourself in the past. Open your eyes and look into the dark corners that sometimes seem easier to ignore. Love, value, beauty, money, & resources take center stage, not in a loud expressive manner, but internally and privately. This is allows the growth of deep understanding regarding the depth of your own personal values.

Show love more profoundly, spend money on what you truly value, create beauty through art, and deep loving kindness.

At 3:40 PM EDT, the Moon enters Gemini leading you into a weekend of friendships, connections, conversations, and socializing. Don’t spend the evening alone, find folks to engage with to share deeply held beliefs.

The Taurus Moon is VOC* from 10:49 AM EDT until she enters Gemini at 3:40 PM EDT. When the Moon is VOC*, there will be no result from anything that is begun. This simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have any significant future impact.

 

 

A LIGHT-HEARTED WEEKEND

Saturday, October 27, 2018:

A Gemini Moon is always welcome on weekends. Remember, the Moon provides the emotional landscape of the passing days. With the Moon in Gemini, we feel more light-hearted and casual than usual.

Your attention span may be short as you want to socialize, see new things, meet new people, and generally have a good time with as many folks as possible. Humor is a good way to diffuse Gemini’s propensity toward anxiety. Anxiety can become an issue when you want to know and learn everything, all at once, at lightning speed.

This is a great weekend to catch up on communications and catch up with friends. You won’t be in the mood for deep or serious connections but are interested in having a good time, playing games, or chatting.

If you don’t have that social community to connect with, do some light-hearted research, read, or begin writing a story that speaks to your heart.

 

BE CURIOUS, ASK QUESTIONS

Sunday, October 28, 2018:

The Moon continues to color the weekend with the talkative, social shades of Gemini for the majority of Sunday. The focus is on mental stimulation and bringing your thoughts and ideas to others. If you do not engage in mental activity, you will very likely become painfully restless and irritable.

Stay in motion, seek others to talk and engage information with. Allow yourself to get curious and inquisitive about others’ lives and thinking. Visit with your siblings and other relatives, make some phone calls. Gather information about things that call to you. Go on a short road trip, see something new.

When the Moon enters Cancer at 7:28 PM EDT, you are ready to be home for a quiet evening with family and loved ones. I think it has been a good weekend.

The Gemini Moon is VOC* from 12:38 AM EDT until she enters Cancer at 7:28 PM EDT. When the Moon is VOC*, there will be no result from anything that is begun. This simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have any significant future impact.

 

 

“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…”

~ Dane Rudhyar, Astrological Aspects – a Process Oriented Approach, 1980.

* 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*.

“There is no measuring with time, no year matters, and 10 years are nothing. Being an artist means, not reckoning and counting, but ripening like the tree which does not force its sap and stands confident in the storms of spring without the fear that after them may come no summer. It does come. But it comes only to the patient, who are there as though eternity lay before them, so unconcernedly still and wide. I learn it daily, learn it with pain to which I am grateful: patience is everything!”  ~ Rainer Maria Rilke

WELCOME THE SUN TO POWERFUL SCORPIO

Monday, October 23, 2017:

After we fall asleep on Sunday night and long before we awake Monday morning, the Sun makes its annual ingress into the intensely deep waters of Scorpio. We all recognize this time of year; we feel it in our bones.

Here, in the Northern Hemisphere, the darkness comes earlier each day. The shops are full of goblins, witches, black cats, and ghouls. You will notice that gravestones are cropping up on the neighbor’s lawns. Everyone, from old to young, is encouraged to prepare for the descent into darkness and to face it head on. Scorpio’s reputation is not an easy one!

In order to come out on the other side of darkness, we must go deep, we must encounter our own shadow, and we must face the inevitability of death. When we are able to do so, we are gifted with a transformation of perspective; we become the Phoenix – the beautiful, mystical bird, rising renewed from the ashes of the life left behind.

Scorpio shows us that avoiding the issues of darkness, depth, and death does not serve us. In order for the growth and transformation suggested in Scorpio and the rising of the Phoenix, we must face and transform our darkest shadows.

The Moon is in Sagittarius throughout the day easing us into this profound shift in seasonal energies. Allow the ease even as you feel pulled toward the depth.

 

DEEPENING INTROSPECTION

Tuesday, October 24, 2017:

On Tuesday, you must begin in earnest to adjust to the deepening introspection of this Scorpio season. Both Mercury (the planet of our thoughts, ideas, and communications) and Jupiter (the planet of expansion, philosophy, and understanding) preceded the Sun into this powerful and passionate sign.

No matter how much the Sagittarius Moon may want to keep the day on the lighter side, there is no denying the intensity under the surface. Allow the idealistic, wise Sagittarius Moon to expand your understanding of the deeply hidden issues that are being revealed in your personal life, your community, and in the culture around you.

Notice those in your inner circle of friends and neighbors, pay attention to those you rarely notice, the service providers who bring your food and check out your groceries. Each person you encounter has a profound inner life. Acknowledge their humanity with sincere eye contact and kindness.

The Sagittarius Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 12:45 PM EDT until she enters Capricorn at 8:13 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.

 

PLAN FOR FUTURE STABILIZATION

Wednesday, October 25, 2017:

Autumn Landscape by Harald Sohlberg via Wiki Media

With the Moon in Capricorn when you awake on Wednesday morning, you find yourself in a general atmosphere of seriousness. You are aware of your responsibilities, commitments, and the areas of your life that may hold you earthbound.

Throughout the day, the stern Capricorn Moon forms sextile aspects to the deeply intense Scorpio Sun, expansive Jupiter, and dreamy Neptune. This suggests that today is an excellent time to make long term plans that will build more structure and stability into your life. Setting goals designed to create the life you desire through hard work and prudent development is a great way to use the energies of this day.

You won’t want to waste your precious time, attention, or resources on frivolous issues. You are able to see the reality of your situation and understand the steps available that will assist you in moving in the direction of your desires. Even in the midst of this cautious, serious day, you are able to see the possibilities of setting the steps that will support the forward motion of your life. Pay attention to your own integrity and make plans for future stabilization and growth.

With the sextile between the Moon and Neptune at 7:56 PM EDT, save the evening hours for dreaming of the results of all those plans!

 

CLARITY AND EXPANSION

Thursday, October 26, 2017:

The Moon continues through authoritative, mature Capricorn on Thursday. However, her relationship with the other planets is not quite as friendly as it was on Wednesday.

At 6:50 AM EDT, the Moon joins with powerful Pluto, pushing you to begin the day with deep contemplation of powerful issues or difficult power dynamics. Remember, this is a Moon transit and will not last through the whole day but may make the early-morning challenging.

Your confidence grows as the Sun joins with wise Jupiter at 2:09 PM EDT. This begins a one year cycle of expanding awareness through idealism and understanding. This is happening in the powerful transformative sign of Scorpio, the amplification may reveal much of what has been keep hidden in the depths of our awareness and hidden in our culture. Watch for more information on issues that result from the rampant misogyny in our world and the deep wounds we carry from what is held in darkness.

Where in your own life does a light need to be brought to what has been kept in darkness? Being courageous enough to shine a light into dark corners can bring expansion and healing into all those areas that have held such darkness. However, remember that we all are victims of misogyny, understanding and kindness are always appropriate… along with clarity and truth.

 

INTEGRITY IN PARTNERSHIP

Friday, October 27, 2017:

At 8:59 AM EDT, the Moon leaves the serious nature of Capricorn behind to enter the quirky, innovative sign of Aquarius. The Aquarius Moon will be with us throughout the weekend, so as you make plans for the coming days, keep in mind that it is a weekend meant for community building. Consider the importance of adding your voice to issues of humanitarianism and freedom.

At 6:23 PM EDT, we come to the First Quarter Square moon phase. Take time to consider the seeds that you planted at the New Moon last weekend and take action to push that process forward.

At 11:20 PM EDT, loving Venus forms a challenging square aspect to transformational Pluto. This will have a profound impact on the entire weekend so plan ahead. You may encounter energies that are deeply challenging to your closest partnerships or financial concerns; often, those issues are deeply entwined.

If you are involved in a healthy relationship, this can bring your relationship to a new level of connection and depth; although there will likely be some struggle to get there. If there are unhealthy power dynamics, this could signal the beginning of the end to the partnership. Remember, this does not only impact romantic or domestic partnerships but also business relationships and close friendships. Maintain awareness of your own integrity in your interactions with others, romantic and financial.

Shortly after, at 11:24 PM EDT, Mercury forms a sextile aspect to Pluto. You will do well to utilize this opportunity to speak-up and make your needs clear. Make sure your words are laced with kindness.

The Capricorn Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 1:23 AM EDT until she enters Aquarius at 8:59 AM 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.

RELATIONSHIP TRANSFORMATION

Saturday, October 28, 2017:

Late Friday night, we had two significant transits that will be strongly impacting Saturday.

Lovely Venus, the planet of all that we most dearly value, formed a challenging square aspect to transformational Pluto. This may profoundly impact your closest partnerships, love relationships, or financial concerns. Issues of love and money are often deeply entwined. In your loving connections, this may bring deep conversations and shifting dynamics that may deepen your love connection profoundly. However, if you are in a partnership that is unhealthy, cracks may appear at this time that will widen the gulf between you unless you are willing to do the hard work necessary.

You probably won’t see this shift in sibling or parent/child relationships but in romantic or domestic partnerships, friendships, or business partnerships. Maintain awareness of your own integrity in your interactions; look inward.

Mercury also forms an aspect to Pluto, in this case, a sextile, encouraging you to speak up in a way that is kind and yet, expresses your deepest needs and concerns.

The Moon continues through Aquarius on Saturday allowing you to remain calm and dispassionate, somewhat removed from the difficulty engendered by the conversation between Pluto and Venus. The Aquarius Moon helps us to be able to utilize the opportunity to say what needs to be said without getting carried away in stress or difficulty. Speak your mind with kindness and without too much attachment to the outcome.

 

ACCEPTANCE AND PROCESS

Sunday, October 29, 2017:

Sunday morning finds you in a state of acceptance as the objective Aquarius Moon forms a sextile to stable Saturn at 9:02 AM EDT. You will awake in consideration of the changes the past few days have brought to your love relationship or your connection to other deep values in your life (financial concerns or creative endeavors). Consider and accept reality as you plan the appropriate steps forward.

At 12:22 PM EDT, with the Moon sextile inspirational Uranus, you can tap into the anticipation of a new way of being. Think outside the box of conventional expectations. You can create your life and your partnerships on your own – and your partners’ – terms. Conversations on the changes that have occurred and are occurring will be valuable and continue to move your process forward.

The Moon continues through Aquarius until 7:47 PM EDT when she enters Pisces, now, you can relax into deep dreams-space as you prepare for the upcoming week.

The Aquarius Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 12:22 PM EDT until she enters Pisces at 7:47 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.

Astrolore’s Weekly Astrology Weather: March 6, 2017 through March 12, 2017

Take heart!! At 7:33 PM EST on Thursday, Mars, the planet of war and strife, leaves aggressive Aries behind to enter stabilizing Taurus. You can expect some release of the deep, intense anxiety we have been embroiled in for the past few months.

Vid Källaren by Carl Larsson via Wiki Commons

Vid Källaren by Carl Larsson via Wiki Commons

It is true that Mars would far rather remain in Aries; he does not look forward to his time in Taurus. However, Mars can bring aggression and warlike behavior when in Aries; when he moves into Taurus, he has no choice but to settle down and behave more calmly.

I give this one a thumbs-up.

 

 

HEART CENTERED COMMUNICATION

Monday, March 6, 2017:

Following the weekend’s focus on communications and thinking processes, Monday morning when the Moon enters domestic Cancer at 7:54 AM EST, your focus shifts dramatically. You can anticipate a desire for comfort, affection, and sentimentality to easily override your intellectual process. With the Moon in moody and sometimes defensive Cancer, pay attention to your own sensitivity and the possible oversensitivity of others.

At 7:28 PM EST, when the Sun conjoins with mental Mercury in compassionate Pisces, your sensitivity does not diminish in the least but you are able to communicate this deep sensitivity with a clear voice. Bring compassion and clarity to heart-to-heart conversations.

The Gemini Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 3:22 AM EST until it enters Cancer at 7:54 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.

 

PLEASANT MORNING – CRABBY AFTERNOON

Tuesday, March 7, 2017:

Tuesday begins easily enough. You may carry over a deep level of compassion and kindness from Monday as the protective Cancer Moon makes lovely aspects to empathetic Neptune, the all-powerful Sun, and perceptive Mercury.

Enjoy the morning; it is the best part of day. Whatever you need to accomplish, get it done early.

From the mid-afternoon through bedtime, the deeply sensitive Cancer Moon forms rough aspects to destructive Pluto, idealistic Jupiter, and defiant Uranus. Don’t be surprised at your own moodiness and the plain crabbiness of others!

Watch your defensiveness and your tendency to seek an escape at the slightest provocation.

Shortly after midnight, your mind will open to powerful opportunities. Expect to encounter these in your dreams. Keep your journal by your bedside to jot down any helpful notes when you wake up on Wednesday morning.

 

 

Children Running from a Thunderstorm by Konstantin Makovsky via Wiki CommonsEXPLORING POSSIBILITIES

Wednesday, March 8, 2017:

Wednesday brings a sense of potential with a lovely sextile aspect between mental Mercury (currently in imaginative Pisces) and powerful Pluto. This brings us to the first step in a cycle of empowerment that began on January 29, 2017. The empowerment being developed throughout this cycle is one of mental clarity or growth.  Over the course of this (approximately one year) cycle your thinking or ability to communicate is profoundly deepened. Now is the time to explore what direction this learning will take you.

For example, perhaps at the end of January you decided to embark on a writing project (or perhaps a learning or a communication project), now you begin to explore different approaches or methods that will bring that project forward. It is not yet time to take an active step forward, but a time to think about and explore those next steps.

The time for actual motion forward will come in about two weeks.

At 9:59 AM EST, with the inward Cancer Moon squaring determined Mars, you may feel aggravated and even a bit aggressive. This will pass quickly when the Moon enters vital Leo at 11:46 AM EST. With the sensitivity of Cancer left behind, you can move into a playful, self-expressive afternoon. Get together with friends or spend time with children. Allow your inner child to play and show her truly openhearted generosity.

The Cancer Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 9:59 AM EST until she enters Leo at 11:46 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.

 

 

A TIME OF PREPARATION & PATIENCE

Thursday, March 9, 2017:

Thursday is almost like a mirror to Wednesday. You are once again offered the opportunity to consider, without needing to move too quickly, what will most deeply empower your ability to make a difference in the world. What path will empower the development of your gifts to the world? You are asked now to explore what you need to do over the coming weeks that will enable you to make a difference to those around you.

Again, do not take any major steps forward. Explore possibilities and consider the actions you will take over the coming months. This is a time of preparation.

At 7:33 PM EST, Mars leaves his favorite sign of Aries behind and enters the calm, stable pastures of Taurus. Mars is not delighted with this move. He is happy in his home sign of aggressive, angry Aries. However, we need this stability now.

While Mars is in Taurus (until April 23rd), we will learn patience and begin the process of planning our garden. Spring is upon us. Mars in Taurus insists that we stabilize, develop patience and steadfast devotion to our Mother Earth

 

 

PLAYFULNESS TURNS TO PRACTICAL CONCERNS

Friday, March 10, 2017:

The playful Leo Moon is expansive, excited, and steady Friday morning as she engages in delightful conversations with Jupiter, Uranus, and Saturn. The afternoon settles down into simplicity as we wait for the Moon’s entry into Virgo at 5:07 PM EST. This shift leads us into a weekend of productivity and efficiency.

It is unlikely to be a terribly exciting weekend but should be highly productive with plenty of opportunities to express kindness along with spring cleaning projects. When the efficient Virgo Moon trine determined Mars at 6:22 PM EDT, jump right on those practical projects. You have amazing energy into the evening to get things done.

At 8:34 PM EST, as Mercury conjoins with Chiron, your communications can bring deep healing to yourself or others. Maintain focus on practical matters, sensitivity, being of service to others, and simple kindness.

The Leo Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 12:05 PM EST until she enters Virgo at 5:07 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.

HELP OTHERS WITH PRACTICALITY AND SIMPLICITY

Saturday, March 11, 2017:

Any projects that you began on Friday evening will keep you occupied throughout Saturday. This is a weekend for kindness, helping others, and accomplishing organizational projects, not a weekend for excitement and dramatic activities. Detailed work is highlighted with this industrious Virgo Moon.

At 3:07 PM EST, when the Moon opposes elusive Neptune, you may feel a bit confused, dreamy, or inspired to take on a more imaginative or artistic project. If you feel tired, take a nap.

Saturday is simply not a high-energy day but a day of steady, meticulous movement forward. Virgo always seeks to be of service so helping others will come easily and feel satisfying on a deep level. However, be sure you are clear on the difference between being helpful and putting yourself in the position of being a martyr. Helping does not mean rescuing someone who holds a victim role.  Be clear of this distinction and enjoy this simple day of open awareness and generous kindness.

 

 

VIRGO FULL MOON – WORK EQUALS MASTERY

Sunday, March 12, 2017:

You may feel as if you were waking up on the wrong side of the bed on Sunday morning. At 8:10 AM EDT, (time changed while you slept!) Mercury forms a square aspect to serious, authoritative Saturn. With Mercury in dreamy Pisces, your mind longs to enter flights of fancy unrestrained by reality. However there is a strong need to step into a more serious thought process.

Did you begin a new study or a new way of thinking in late November 2016? Now, the Universe is pushing you to move forward in a mature responsible way. This is no time for mysticism or lack of clear thinking. Take action on something real, tangible, and solid.

At 10:54AM EDT, the Full Moon occurs at 22 degrees Virgo. Open yourself to a deep level of service. Where can you help others?

With the Full Moon forming challenging aspects to hard working Saturn and thoughtful Mercury (both in passive Pisces), you must understand how hard work and sustained effort is necessary to the development of mastery in your life.

This is a day to look clearly at the places you must put in long term and sustained effort. Remember, that this type of effort builds not only mastery but also self-respect and authority. Support others in building self-respect.

The Virgo Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 10:37 PM EST until she enters Libra at 1:29 AM EDT on Monday. 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.

Hello, Dear Readers!

Before getting on to the daily posts, I am leaving you with a few random quotes that have spoke to me over the past few days.

But first:

Are you up against a difficult decision, or are you questioning your current life, love, or career direction? An astrological consultation with an open hearted, competent astrologer will clearly show you the larger picture at play, the universal directional path.

I am taking new clients again and would love to meet with you. Contact me today.

“The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern.

ENJOY ‘CREEPY’ PLAY – HALLOWEEN

Monday, October 31, 2016:

Halloween falls on a day perfect for the holiday. The sensitive Moon is in mysterious Scorpio enabling us to look into the face of all that is anticipated for this traditionally ‘creepy’ holiday.

At the same time, it is a calm day astrologically; you won’t need to worry about the intensity of ‘creepy play’ spilling into real world fears or compulsions. The Moon makes charming aspects to both Pluto (representing the underworld) and Mars (representing strength and courage) enabling you to play with these energies while learning about yourself through the reality of what is being expressed.  Go ahead and play; enjoy the expression of all that calls to you from the other side of the veil.

The Scorpio Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 10:44 PM EDT until she enters Sagittarius on Tuesday at 10:44 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.

 

DREAMS AND EXPLORATIONS

Tuesday, November 1, 2016:

You may wake up on Tuesday morning with a deep desire to stay in your warm space of sleep and dreams. Of course, most of you will need to get up and start the day but there is nothing to stop you from bringing your dreams with you.

At 4:16 AM EDT, the vital Sun trines transcendent Neptune encouraging you to continue feeding the dream that began last February. It should be easy to simply roll with the sense that things are not as they appear to be. Do you feel overly sensitive, perhaps even confused or dreamy?

If there was a dream or a powerful impression that began last February, bring your awareness to how you can now utilize what that dream brought into your life. What do you bring to the table now because of how that dream has changed you and your path forward?

Allow yourself to enjoy a sense of groundlessness, a diffuse dreamy state on Tuesday. Trust where you find yourself; allow intuition to guide your steps. Show others what you have learned by trusting your intuition and inspirations.

When the gentle Moon enters philosophical Sagittarius at 10:44 AM EDT, you can expect an increase in physical energy and in your desire for exploration. When the Moon is in Sagittarius, it is always a good time to plan a trip or explore differences of culture and lifestyle. On a Tuesday night, you probably won’t be taking the next jet out of the country to explore the world, but you can sit at home and enjoy a great documentary that may help you understand how others live, love, and experience the full range of their lives.

Tuesday begins with the Scorpio Moon VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) until she enters Sagittarius at 10:44 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.

SHIFT GEARS

Wednesday, November 2, 2016:

Enjoy the delightful, optimistic Sagittarius Moon for one more day. Wednesday begins with a sextile from the receptive Moon to expansive Jupiter at 9:59 AM EDT.  You may find yourself longing for life to present you with experiences that will enrich and enlarge your life and your mind.  You may feel that life is bigger than you thought. Everything feels larger than life. Hold onto that sense of excitement and freedom for as long as you can.

Say YES to anyone who offers opportunities for emotional expansion and excitement.

When the Moon conjoins Saturn at 4:10 PM EDT, you will likely be brought back to reality regardless of your desires or best intentions.  Go ahead and shift gears. Allow yourself to set the excitement aside to look into the eyes of reality.

While you sleep on Wednesday night (during in the wee hours of Thursday morning), Mercury sextile Pluto. Before you go to bed on Wednesday night, make sure you have pen and paper by your bed to record your dreams. You may have intense dreams of successfully releasing ways of thinking that you have been stuck with for many years.  Pay attention and release.

 

EXPRESS POWERFUL IDEAS

Thursday, November 3, 2016:

At the breakfast table on Thursday morning, be sure to get everyone involved in talking about your dreams from Wednesday night.

At 1:09 AM EDT, Mercury sextile Pluto bringing powerful ideas and thoughts to mind. Since you were probably asleep at that time, those ideas probably expressed themselves in your dreams. This aspect will remain active throughout the day offering you the opportunity to speak about some important issue that you have been hesitant to talk about.

This is the day to speak about, write about, or somehow communicate a significant truth. There is an excellent chance that your fears around this communication will simply disappear as soon as you say what needs to be said.

With the Moon VOC* all day, there is little chance that much will come of this communication. Nevertheless, it will smooth the path, and release fear, for the changes ahead, as your mind grows in understanding.

At 11:05 PM EDT, the Moon will leave behind the lightness of Sagittarius and move into rigid, serious Capricorn. You can look forward to a productive day on Friday.

The Sagittarius Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 6:36 AM EDT until she enters Capricorn at 11:05 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 significant future impact.

 

ACCOMPLISHMENT & EFFORT

Friday, November 4, 2016:

Friday is a day to express ambition and make sure your integrity level is up to par. Move into the day with a clear idea of what you can realistically accomplish while holding true to your highest ideals. This is a serious day but one with few complications (until evening when you begin to feel the Venus trine Uranus, which will be exact early Saturday morning).

Keep your nose to the grindstone and your feet planted firmly on the ground. Focus on the completion of any prior commitments or move forward with projects of an organizational nature.

As you head into the evening, the energy shifts and you will feel the excitement or anxiety that is calling from the outside world. There may be more surprises.

The U.S. elections have shown and continue to show us, so much that is deeply disturbing and powerfully unnerving.  It is clear how much we have to gain and lose in the days ahead. This is the time to make sure you are talking amongst yourselves.

Make sure your friends and  loved ones are going to vote next week. The future is in your hands.  This is the weekend to volunteer at the phone banks for your political choices. Don’t neglect your responsibility to push us all forward to a better tomorrow.

SENSITIVITY AND EXCITEMENT

Saturday, November 5, 2016:

As Saturday begins, remember to pay attention, not only to the intensity of the outer world, but also to the development of your closest partnerships and love relationships. Finding a balance between the outer world and the inner world is crucial at this time. Neither one can be neglected.

You may get unexpected or unusual information about a loved one or see a side of a situation you were not anticipating. Refined harmonious Venus trine revolutionary unconventional Uranus at 2:23 AM EDT, this transit will stay with us throughout the day. This may be experienced as exciting, something you can see in a positive light for the greater good.

However, at 5:26 AM EDT the highly sensitive Moon joins with powerful Pluto beginning the day with deeply intense emotion. You may feel highly capable, even powerful, as you work to manage this depth of emotion.

At 5:48 PM EDT, the reactionary Moon squares defiant Uranus bringing an element of friction to the evening. Your desire to maintain stability through routine and limiting structures is brought into question. Allow yourself to break the out of control and cynicism on Saturday.  Add the unusual to the evening. Do something unexpected to bring your true authentic self forward.

 

MAINTAIN EQUILIBRIUM

Sunday, November 6, 2016:

On Sunday morning, we enter Daylight Savings Time in the U.S.; as we move forward this will be reflected in Astrolore’s posts. If you live in another time zone, please adjust accordingly.

Here in the USA, everything is so ramped up in the current presidential elections. It is challenging to maintain our equilibrium. However, Sunday is a day to do your best to simply sit with exactly where you find yourself. You are very likely surrounding yourselves with folks who believe much as you do about the candidates and the outcomes. Otherwise your stress level would be over the Moon! 😉

With the emotional Moon entering Aquarius at 8:56 AM EST, this is a day to spend with like-minded friends. I would tell you to rest from all of the anxiety swimming around this issue but we all know that is not possible. Let’s hope we can get back to normal over the next few weeks. For now, hold steady in the company of those who have your back.

The Capricorn Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 4:57 AM EST until she enters Aquarius at 8:56 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.

Sending light & love, Laurie

Astrolore’s Weekly Astrology Weather: March 14, 2016 through March 20, 2016

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

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.

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.
