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.

__________________________________________________________
* 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.

A THREAD OF POETRY

Monday, January 23, 2017:

The week begins with an optimistic Sagittarius Moon enlarging your perspective and enabling you to understand others and expand your own vision.

At 4:28 PM EST, Mercury (ruling our intellect, communications, and perception) sextile Neptune (showing up as our imagination, compassion, and sensitivity) makes it easy for you to understand the perspective of those you meet and to speak directly to that perspective. Make the effort to show compassion with your words. Speak with sensitivity. There is a thread of poetry within your mind on Monday.

When bedtime comes, your emotions may feel excited and possibly, conflicted. Sleep will not come easily if the conversations begun earlier in the day swept you into imaginative states far outside your previous boundaries.

Don’t allow delusional thinking to wash away practical reality.

 

 

STRENGTH AND CLARITY

Tuesday, January 24, 2017:

Tuesday morning may bring with it a sense of unease, discomfort, and irritability. At 5:39 AM EST, the expansive Sagittarius Moon makes contact with restrictive Saturn. Your desire to expand beyond your present constraints feels thwarted.

At 12:34 PM EST, the Moon squares argumentative Mars; you can almost feel the collective growl of frustration and anger.

When the Moon enters Capricorn at 5:44 PM EST, you are able to settle down and focus on reality and your responsibilities as you move forward.

All in all, this is not a comfortable day. If you are able to find the ability to stay engaged without anger or resentment, this day offers an opportunity to release the past and move forward from a place of strength and clarity.

The Sagittarius Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 12:34 PM EST until she interested half of corn at 5:44 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.

 

 

BRING PRACTICAL IDEAS TO THE TABLE

Wednesday, January 25, 2017:

Wednesday provides an interesting and workable day.  Before you wake up, Venus forms a conjunction with Chiron (the wounded healer), bringing beauty to the sore places within your soul. Beauty and grace sooth the deepest wounds. Remember, vulnerability holds great strength and moves us beyond understanding.

At 2:07 PM EST, the practical Capricorn Moon forms a sextile (showing up as an opportunity) to mystical Neptune encouraging us to understand that practical reality and mystical intuition support each other in ways that are not always obvious.

When the Capricorn Moon conjunct Mercury at 6:59 PM EST, the practicality of your thinking helps you to turn your ambition to your highest understanding of what is good and right in the world. Find areas where you can help others with your most practical ideas.

A SENSE OF ACCOMPLISHMENT

Thursday, January 26, 2017:

The disciplined Capricorn Moon encounters a series of challenging aspects on Thursday that will likely leave you feeling unsteady, anxious, and will have difficulty understanding your path forward.

Your best bet is to focus on your own ambitions, responsibilities, and necessary accomplishments. Follow your personal guidelines of integrity and, in all things, act with stable maturity.

It would be a mistake to look for fun, enjoyable endeavors on Thursday or to try to avoid work. Ending the day with a sense of accomplishment should be your goal from the start of the day.

At 3:05 PM EST, when the Moon forms a gentle sextile to lovely Venus you can anticipate easier energies to come into focus as long as you managed the morning without burning bridges or engaging in interpersonal difficulties.

Your goals for Thursday: Do not burn any bridges and end the day with a sense of accomplishment.

 

 

AQUARIUS NEW MOON – PLANT A SEED FOR THE FUTURE OF HUMANITY

Friday, January 27, 2017:

By the time you wake up on Friday morning, the Moon is in Aquarius. Generally speaking, Aquarius allows us healthy emotional detachment and objectivity.

However, due to a challenging square aspect between Venus and Saturn, this is a day of high-pressure and deep challenges to our values and relationships. Even the most optimistic of you may be challenged to maintain a light-hearted approach to the day.

Consider what action you need to take to deepen your commitment to your own true values. Remember, this does not indicate a bad day, but a day of serious action. It may be a very quiet action taken in the depth of your own soul.

At 7:08 PM EST, the dark phase of the Moon reaches its culmination at the New Moon at 8° Aquarius.

The Aquarius New Moon brings powerful energy to plant a seed for objectivity, progress, and revolutionary humanitarian efforts.

Set an intention regarding the ability to open your mind to innovations that will bring progressive humanitarian values forward.

Don’t neglect this New Moon ritual. Keep it simple. Take a moment to write down what you wish to begin, create, or increase in the upcoming cycle. Have two candles available for your ritual. Light the first candle to represent yourself, just as you are at this moment in time. Light the second candle as an aspiration of what you aspire to create.
Each day, take a moment to focus on yourself as you light the first candle. As you light the second candle, focus on drawing to you what you are creating, as you bring the two candles closer together. At the Full Moon in two weeks, bring them fully together and see the results of what you have created.

Share this ritual with your friends and loved ones.

Today’s New Moon at 8° Aquarius insists that you plant a seed of unconventional motion for the future and prepare yourself to grow in unconventional, humanitarian wisdom.

The Capricorn Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection)

From 2:18 AM EST until she enters Aquarius at 3:37 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.

DEVELOP COURAGE TO SERVE HUMANITY

Saturday, January 28, 2017:

When you wake up Saturday morning, aggressive Mars has entered impulsive Aries. Mars is powerful, forceful, and combative in Aries (the sign he rules) where he will remain until March 9th.

Pay attention to the area in your chart that holds the sign of Aries. Be aware and attempt to mitigate issues of anger and aggression that show up in this area of your life. This is an area where you can be courageous in taking action over the coming 6 weeks.

However, I must also say, watch the news.  Where do you see impulsive action, selfishness, and aggression expressed in the outer world?

The progressive Aquarius Moon is with us throughout the day making lovely aspects to unconventional Uranus and philosophical Jupiter. This will be a delightful day to gather with like-minded folks. Direct your collective assertive energy in a manner that will support the greater humanitarian community.

The Capricorn Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection)

From 12:53 AM EST until she enters Pisces at 11:11 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.

 

 

POWER OF WORDS – POWERFUL THOUGHTS

Sunday, January 29, 2017:

Sleep late and enjoy a quiet morning on Sunday. The emotional Moon enters passive sensitive Pisces at 11:11 AM EST, asking that you pay attention to the development of your spirituality and compassion for self and others.

Additionally, Mercury conjunct Pluto at 3:21PM EST begins a new cycle of empowering the direction of your communications and your thinking. This is the time to begin a powerful study or profoundly deepen an existing one.

Serious power comes through your thoughts. Pay attention. Do some journal writing to contemplate the direction of your thoughts.

If you have plans to write this year, this is the day to begin the project!

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

 

 

UNUSUAL BELIEFS

Monday, December 26, 2016:

On Monday, you may experience some emotional fallout; perhaps a reaction to the overdose of sweetness and connection from the past few days. You may be anxious to get back to your regular routines. It would be easy to fall into old passive aggressive or cranky patterns of behavior as the day begins.

Go for a walk or take some form of exercise if you feel any agitation. Expending physical energy is a good way to shift this. It will not last long.

At 1:35 PM EST, Jupiter opposes Uranus. This is the first of three “hits” of this highly significant transit. The second “hit” is in March of 2017 and the third will occur in September of 2017.

Think back to something that began in your life in 2010, something that spoke to the expansion of the unusual. Perhaps, you began to understand a belief system that was new or unusual to your way of thinking at the time. Maybe you traveled somewhere that has changed how you experience yourself and the world. Whatever began then is now worthy of renewed contemplation. What has the seed you planted back then brought to you?

Whatever began in 2010 is now fully illuminated and ready to be brought out into the light of full view. Beliefs that have grown internally can no longer be denied. Show the truth of who you are now.

At 11:18 PM EST, Mercury sextile Neptune; allow your thoughts to drift and be open to the dreams that are offered.

 

 

DEVELOPING COURAGE

Tuesday, December 27, 2016:

The first influence of the day is a sextile between the serious Capricorn Sun and dynamic Mars who is trying to understand the best way to express himself while moving through the sensitive sign of Pisces. This aspect speaks of possibilities.

Think back to June of 2015. Did something occur where you developed assertiveness or courage at that time? If so, you are being asked now to consider how you will continue that process; perhaps, developing more courage in a new circumstance beginning in July 2017.

Perhaps, it was different for you. Did you become angry or aggressive toward someone or something at that time (June 2015)? If so, now you are given the opportunity to release that anger. It is time to let it go and move on. Is there an apology that needs to be made or some other communication to help settle this issue?

The Sagittarius Moon brings mixed messages throughout the day. Excitement and enthusiasm in the earlier part of the day leads to a slump around 4:00 PM EST that then lightens up considerably after 8:00 PM EST.

Time spent alone on solitary projects between 4:00 and 8:00 PM EST will help you maintain an optimistic expansive view of your world and those who encounter.

The Sagittarius Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 8:45 PM EST until she enters Capricorn on Wednesday morning at 10:12 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.

EXPLANATIONS AND UNDERSTANDING

Wednesday, December 28, 2016:

Wednesday morning begins slowly, shifting into serious contemplations when the Moon enters Capricorn at 10:12 AM EST.

With the careful Capricorn Sun joining with perceptive Mercury at 1:47 PM EST, please pay attention to your conversations on Wednesday afternoon.

With Mercury retrograde, make sure that you listen carefully and make an effort to understand other points of view. Be clear as you share your viewpoint. Are there explanations that will assist others in understanding you? Do you need explanations from others? No defensiveness on either side is required.

At 6:05 PM EST, Mercury sextile Mars offers you an opportunity to more deeply understand your own motivations and those of others.

We are currently in the Dark Phase of the Moon; go inward to understand your own motivations.

The Sagittarius Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 8:45 PM EST on Tuesday until she enters Capricorn on Wednesday morning at 10:12 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.

CAPRICORN NEW MOON – BUILD INTEGRITY

Thursday, December 29, 2016:

Uranus turns direct on Thursday at 4:29 AM EST. Since Uranus began his retrograde on July 29th, we have gained awareness of the perverse revolutionary cracks in our cultural system. As Uranus moves forward and picks up speed in the coming weeks, our collective awareness and understanding grows. We begin to see a new direction for our personal and collective revolution.

The Capricorn New Moon is exact at 1:54 AM EST.

Please take time to do a simple New Moon ritual. You will want to complete your ritual before Friday morning.

The Capricorn New Moon brings powerful energy for the development of responsibility, maturity, and integrity. Set an intention regarding the ability to stabilize your life and ambitions through maturity and serious considerations.
Don’t neglect this New Moon ritual. Keep it simple.

Take a moment to write down what you wish to begin, create, or increase in the upcoming cycle. Have two candles available for your ritual. Light the first candle to represent yourself, just as you are at this moment in time. 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, focus on drawing to you what you are creating, as you bring the two candles closer together. At the Full Moon in two weeks, bring them fully together and see the results of what you have created.
Share this ritual with your friends and loved ones.
Today’s New Moon at 7° Capricorn insists that you plant a seed of solid reality and that we prepare ourselves to grow in discipline, responsibility, and prudent integrity.

 

 

SEEING THE DREAM

Friday, December 30, 2016:

Ideally, Friday will be a day of rest. The Capricorn Moon is VOC* all day until she enters the quirky sign of Aquarius at 8:29 PM EST. If you’ve rested properly throughout the day, this should be a fun evening of entertainment with friends. Be careful not to wear yourself out before New Year’s Eve.

At 6:24 PM EST, the serious Capricorn Sun sextile Neptune, helping you relax into the inspired internal changes that have occurred over the past year. Look back to a dream that you set in motion in late February of 2016. What you thought you were creating at that time is now released gently in order to prepare for the next step of that dream. It will be fully released in the beginning of March 2017. If your eyes are open now, you will begin to see the barest outline of the new dream coming into focus.

The Capricorn Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 3:07 AM EST until she enters Aquarius at 8:29 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.

WILD MIND

Saturday, December 31, 2016:

The final day of the year is interesting as there are no major aspects at all.

The Moon travels unimpeded between 1° and 14° Aquarius. As the Moon moves through the signs of the zodiac, she sets the emotional tone of our days. The Moon changes sign approximately every 2 ½ days.

While the Moon is in Aquarius, you will find yourself more concerned with humanity and less concerned with individual people. Aquarius is a visionary sign and sees the big picture from a relatively detached perspective.

This is a time to gather with like-minded acquaintances for intellectual connections and collaborations. Ideas and thoughts can go in unusual directions while seeking others with similar vision.

Envision your life as you wish it to be with no restrictions from others. You seek and long for a sense of freedom. Give yourself and each other the space to explore your own wild mind.

 

 

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Sunday, January 1, 2017:

As we celebrate the New Year on Saturday night, shortly after midnight, Mars will join with Neptune, beginning a cycle of energizing your compassionate understanding of this mystical world we live in. It could also energize you to drink more than you need to!

When you wake up on Sunday morning, it will be clear which way you played this. In many ways, you can use this transit to support you in the upcoming two years. This could be the time to finally face and end a long-term dependency on substances. You could find the courage to face your demons and create great works of music or art.

Think of what can be created when you bring together inspiration and courage. Plant a seed.

The Moon continues through Aquarius; spend time in the company of others who support you to your highest good. Offer your highest good to others.

SHARE LOVE, EXPRESS LOVE

Monday, November 28, 2016:

You may have the sense today that you are holding your breath. Are you waiting for the next shoe to fall? We can see where this is playing out on a cultural and social level but what about in your private life?

Monday is quiet; it is best to allow flow without insisting on focused accomplishment.

We are in the Dark of the Moon with the New Moon coming on Tuesday morning. The Moon is also VOC* until 3:46 PM EST.

Spending time with an inward focus is your best bet.  Once the Moon enters Sagittarius at 3:46 PM EST, you will feel uplifted. The late afternoon and evening will present opportunities to expand your understanding of other cultures, world-views, and manners in which others live their lives.  Open to deep tolerance, understanding, and compassion. Share love. Express love.

The week begins with the Scorpio Moon VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) until 3:46 PM EST when she enters Sagittarius. 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.

 

 

SAGITTARIUS NEW MOON: FREEDOM & UNDERSTANDING

Tuesday, November 29, 2016:

The Sagittarius New Moon is exact at 7:19 AM EST. Plant a seed of freedom for your own life and for the lives of all humans. Personal freedom will always leave a bitter taste in your mouth when you know that others do not share your access to those basic freedoms. Therefore, it is important that you plant this seed for the sake of all humans.

At 3:20 PM EST, Venus square Uranus, brings your attention to the more unconventional aspects of your values and you relationships. This energy can bring spontaneous excitement and unexpected change to your usual ways of engaging with others. Expect the unexpected in love and money.

Please take time on Tuesday to do a simple New Moon ritual. You will want to complete the ritual after the exact time of the New Moon and within 24 hours. The Sagittarius New Moon brings powerful energy for the development of freedom and the understanding of the world-view that others hold. Set an intention regarding the ability to share your beliefs and opinions and to hold, with great understanding, the beliefs of others who hold vastly different world-views.
Don’t neglect this New Moon ritual. Keep it simple. Take a moment to write down what you wish to begin, create, and increase in the upcoming cycle. Have two candles available for your ritual. Light the first candle to represent yourself, just as you are at this moment in time. 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, focus on drawing to you what you are creating, as you bring the two candles closer together. At the Full Moon in two weeks, bring them fully together and see the results of what you have created.
Share this ritual with your friends and loved ones.

Tuesday’s New Moon at 7 degrees Sagittarius insists that you (we) plant a seed of freedom, perspective, and higher understanding. Plant this seed of freedom for yourself and for the benefit of all humanity.

 

 

ENVISION THE IDEAL

Wednesday, November 30, 2016:

Wednesday’s Sagittarius Moon is very active. You may wake with serious or difficult dreams in the early morning hours as the Moon conjoins restrictive Saturn (3:16 AM EST). Allow that energy to shift into excitement and open your thinking to inspiration as the Sagittarius Moon trines electrifying and unusual Uranus at 9:45 AM EST.

The most significant message of the day comes with the Sun’s square to dreamy Neptune at 8:16 PM EST. This energy will resonate through Wednesday and Thursday. Look back at a dream that began in February 2016.  Now it is time to let go of unrealistic aspects of that dream in order to begin a more elevated dream in February 2017.

Begin to consider what you will create out of the cycle you are beginning to release now. You have enough distance and accumulated knowledge to allow the release of the parts of the dream that are no longer viable. Allow yourself to dream, to envision the ideal, to understand impressions, and to work with the intangible that forms the basis of this world. Spread loving kindness.

The Sagittarius Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 11:08 PM EST until she enters Capricorn on Wednesday at 3:53 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.

 

 

BRING FORTH HOPE AND COURAGE

Thursday, December 1, 2016:

By the time you wake up on Thursday morning, the Moon is in disciplined, hardworking Capricorn, which offers a day of seriousness and focused effort.

However, at this time we can expect the focus to be less on solitary work and more on working together to reach a powerful goal that has great significance moving forward.

At 10:46 PM EST, impulsive Mars (in humanitarian Aquarius) forms a trine (a free flow of energy) to self-confident Jupiter, powerfully impacting both Thursday and Friday.

Consider what began (personally and culturally) in mid-October 2015. At that time, we began a cycle of expanding strength, understanding our combined wisdom, and fighting for protection. That cycle has now brought us to a point where the floodgates have opened!

Give of yourself to the cause you believe in. Bring hope, give financially, and show confidence in the outcome. The full result of this current effort will be clear in late February. Hold on; use your frustration to pour fourth courage and belief in a better future for all.

 

 

CLARITY AND DETERMINATION

Friday, December 2, 2016:

The optimistic self-confidence and courage you experienced on Thursday remains throughout Friday. However, this is not without complications. As the ambitious authoritative Capricorn Moon makes contact with Pluto at 11:28 AM EST, you may feel overwhelmed by the powerful forces that oppose you.

Maintaining equilibrium may be tricky but when Mercury (the planet of thinking, analyzing, and strategizing) enters Capricorn at 4:17 PM EST you may find yourself viewing the world and your personal situation with a focus on integrity, more interest in self-discipline, and a renewed acceptance of your personal responsibilities.  Gather clarity and determination to focus on the reality of what you know must be done.

At 8:58 PM EST, as the Moon squares defiant Uranus anxiety may kick in. Look for innovative inspiration that will assist you in finding the best path forward. Look in unexpected places. Allow unusual ideas to stimulate a different perspective.

AFTER A SERIOUS DAY, KICK UP YOUR HEELS!

Saturday, December 3, 2016:

Saturday begins slowly with the Moon VOC* moving through conventional, serious Capricorn. Until the Moon enters unconventional Aquarius at 2:35 PM EST, it will be best to utilize the day by engaging in serious but simple routine activities that will forward your personal ambitions. You will feel best and be able to enjoy Saturday evening and Sunday more thoroughly if you get something concrete, however simple, accomplished.

Your best use of the day will be solitary. We all need time alone and Saturday before 2:43 PM EST is a great time to claim for the enjoyment of solitude.

Once the Moon enters unconventional Aquarius, you can let down your hair, set aside the serious mask you wore throughout the morning and make plans to engage with others Saturday evening or Sunday. The past few weeks have been terribly serious and challenging. Saturday evening is time to take a break, kick up your heels, and find gatherings of like-minded people to commiserate or party with.

The Capricorn Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 5:17 AM EST until 2:43 PM EST when she enters Aquarius. 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.

 

 

CURIOSITY AND INTEREST

Sunday, December 4, 2016:

Everything feels lighter on Sunday. This is a simple day with the Moon in unconventional progressive Aquarius. A sextile from the Moon to the Sagittarius Sun at 3:57 PM EST offers curiosity and excitement as you seek new interests, ideas, and ways of moving forward.

This is the Crescent Moon Phase; that the seed you planted at Tuesday’s New Moon needs to be watered with your explorations and commitment to what you intend to grow. What can you learn now that will help you take a step forward next Wednesday at the First Quarter Lunar Phase? The process today is exploration and curiosity.

Enjoy time with like-minded friends and community members. Remember, we all need each other; the energies that we add to the collective are of major importance to all of us at this time in our shared history.

The Aquarius Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 3:34 AM EST until she enters for now at 4:35 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.

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

* The aspects under consideration: conjunctions, textiles, squares, trines, and oppositions.
* The planets I work with: Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto.

Beautiful people do not just happen.” – Elisabeth Keebler-Ross

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
