EXPAND YOUR THINKING

Monday, July 11, 2016:

The week begins on an interesting note indeed. The Moon is in Libra throughout the day suggesting a natural state of balance and calm. However, I suspect this will not necessarily be the case.

At 3:28 AM EDT, Mercury, which represents our mind functions and communications, forms a challenging square transit to Uranus, the planet of innovation and discord. We can expect excitement that threatens to cause upheaval within our minds or communications with others.

Last week on Thursday, Mercury opposed Pluto. Now, a new conversation or thinking pattern comes into focus that is an extension and expansion of the deep conversation at that time. What were you thinking about last Thursday? How has it led to excitement or anxiety now? Perhaps, there is something new that you need to be thinking about or a new study that is calling you.

At 8:52 PM EDT, the Libra Moon comes to the First Quarter phase. The Libra Moon forms an aspect of struggle or argument to the Cancer Sun. Is there a conflict between your emotional desires and your social or romantic needs?  You must allow each side of this challenge space to express itself and grow. Take a significant step forward in what you began at the Cancer New Moon on Monday, July 4th. We are all in the same boat, so be patient with others.

 

VULNERABILITY = INTIMACY

Tuesday, July 12, 2016:

Tuesday begins with the Moon still in Libra, mirroring the excitement or discord of Monday as she opposes Uranus in the early morning hours.

The top significance of Tuesday is the entrance of Venus into Leo where she will remain until August 5th. While Venus was in Cancer (starting on June 17th), our expression of love was sensitive, emotional, and sentimental. As Venus enters Leo, we turn the expression of love to playful generosity. We want to show, provide, and receive grandiose, dramatic, and playful expressions of love. We are drawn to flamboyance and our need for recognition and appreciation is powerful.

The Moon enters Scorpio at 4:53 PM EDT bringing our emotional nature into deep, intense waters. We are not interested in superficial contact; we long for intimacy and yet, may be fearful of the vulnerability necessary to develop that intimacy. Expressing authentic vulnerability is the quickest way to true authentic intimacy.

 

TURN UP THE HEAT

Wednesday, July 13, 2016:

On Wednesday, the Scorpio Moon forms a dreamy trine aspect to Neptune at 4:46 PM EDT. With both the Moon and Neptune in water signs, we may experience a sweet flow, a space of dreaminess or spiritual transcendence. Perhaps, you just want to open that bottle of wine as soon as you get home from work! This is a brief aspect but can feel sweet enough to pay attention to. ☺

At 8:46 PM EDT, Mercury follows Venus into Leo bringing our thoughts to the dramatic, playful expression of love. Leo is a fixed Fire sign, hot and steadfast. With Mercury in Leo, our minds burn deep and steady. We want to express loyalty, playfulness, and generosity in our interactions. Our communications and our imaginations increase in Leo. The stories we tell become more colorful and we may be prone to exaggeration. We feel the heat of fire increase!

On July 22nd, the Sun will also move into Leo bringing Venus, Mercury, and the Sun to the party. Speaking of a party, go ahead and plan one between July 22nd and July 30th. Take advantage of this line up of Leo planets.  What a delight.

 

LOOK FOR THE INSIGHT

Thursday, July 14, 2016:

The Moon will be in Scorpio all day on Thursday forming lovely aspects to Pluto, Jupiter, and the Sun during the early part of the day.  Emotional depth and an intuitive understanding of those around you could result in a rich day of connecting with others.

The evening brings a very different energy. As 6:22 PM EDT, the Moon conjunct Mars. The best use of this would be to engage your sexual or physical energy. If that is not an option you may encounter anger, frustration, or discord. If you see this anger or frustration in yourself, get out of the situation and go for a walk or a run. If you see it in others give them space and a bit of time.

Keep in mind that this is a Moon transit. They do not last long; given an hour or so, the whole issue will pass.  As you release the anger you may be able to use this energy to dig deeply and honestly into the issue and find deep insight.

 

EXPLORATION AND ADVENTURE

Friday, July 15, 2016:

When you wake up Friday morning, everything feels lighter!  You can sense the fun, expansiveness, and adventures available. The Moon enters Sagittarius at 5:15 AM EDT leaving the intensity and depth of Scorpio behind. Throughout the day, the only aspects formed are lovely trines to both Mercury and Venus in Leo.

This is a day to open your heart and mind to exploration and adventure. Pack your bags, head out on the open road and find an adventure.

Freedom, independence, and extravagance are the goals. Your enthusiasm, sense of humor, and generosity are contagious.

Let loose; take the day off. Work is not the place to be. You need to enjoy this one.

SHIFT YOUR AWARENESS

Saturday, July 16, 2016:

Saturday promises to be a powerful day. With the Sun in sensitive Cancer forming a square aspect to rebellious Uranus, issues of identity and ego may be powerfully challenged. Give plenty of space to yourself and others who may be responding and behaving in unusual or unpredictable ways.

How has your need for domestic security prevented you from taking certain exciting and possibly, necessary risks?  Ask yourself if that is currently in your best interests. This contemplation could bring about an unexpected shift in your awareness and understanding of yourself and others.

At 5:59 PM EDT, when Mercury conjunct Venus you are ready to express what your heart truly desires without apology.

When the Cancer Sun trines Mars in Scorpio at 11:44 PM EDT, I hope you will be embroiled in a delightful intimate sexual encounter or ‘cutting a rug’ on a dance floor!

This should be a lovely night for physical expression. Do drive safely if you’re on the road, as you may feel invincible. Play safely!

 

FROM SENSITIVITY TO MATURITY

Sunday, July 17, 2016:

Whatever your contemplations, along with whatever you ‘got up to’ on Saturday night reverberate on a deep emotional level on Sunday.  You are presented with the opportunity for a powerful healing response with a Water Grand Trine between the Sun in Cancer, Chiron in Pisces, and Mars in Scorpio. You may feel highly sensitive as you work with deep layers of emotion that are being activated through your thinking and your activities of Saturday.

At 3:33 PM EDT, the Moon enters Capricorn as we pull ourselves together in preparation for the more serious days ahead. Regardless of how much we have explored, experienced, and even transformed over the past few days, now we are reminded of reality, responsibility, and necessary solitude.

We must consider the importance – and even comfort – of maturity and integrity.

Contemplation for the week:

 “Everything is material for the seed of happiness, if you look into it with inquisitiveness and curiosity. The future is completely open, and we are writing it moment to moment. There always is the potential to create an environment of blame — or one that is conducive to loving-kindness.” ~ Pema Chodron

We begin the week with the Moon VOC* in Libra. This is an active week!

Monday brings the opportunity of healing deep emotional wounds with a free flow of energy between the Sun in Scorpio and Chiron in Pisces.

On Tuesday, pay attention to opportunities presented as there are positive aspects of stabilization and the possibility of important structures being built to support our emotional growth.

On Wednesday, we have a New Moon at 19° Scorpio. This begins a cycle of intensity and deep emotional excavation.

On Thursday, Mars begrudgingly follows Venus into Libra. Venus is delighted to be in Libra, Mars is more than a little lost there. Your ability to take clear and direct action may be a bit compromised over the coming weeks.

Friday offers up more opportunities, possibilities, and excitement; a great start to the weekend.

The upcoming weekend is much divided.

Saturday looks like a great day for parties, gatherings, and enjoyments of all types. However, you may want to settle in for a quieter more serious evening. Get a good night’s sleep and spend Sunday getting focused on accomplishment. This will be a perfect day for house projects and further preparations for winter. Get done what needs to be done.

All in all a great week. Enjoy.

ACCEPT DEEP HEALING

Monday, November 9, 2015:

The week begins with the Moon in Libra as we attempt to put our best foot forward into the week. Our attention may be drawn to issues of fairness and diplomacy.

I do not often talk about Chiron (an asteroid) but with Monday’s trine from the Scorpio Sun to Chiron in Pisces, it begs being paid attention to. Chiron represents a place within your life where you have been wounded and a place of healing. Being in Pisces, this represents a deeply sensitive emotional wound. This is a collective wound. I believe all of our pain is collective.

At any rate, as the Sun forms a trine aspect to Chiron there is a free flow of warmth and light shining on that damaged place. Where in your own mind and in the world around you do you see the possibility of healing? Where is simple light and warmth a cure for suffering and pain?

Shortly before midnight EST, the Moon enters Scorpio and our dreams go deep as we assimilate the healing we have received.

“Never give up on yourself, that way you will never give up on others.” ~ Pema Chodron

 

 

PREPARE FOR A NEW STUDY

Tuesday, November 10, 2015:

Please take advantage of the energy we have available this week.

On Tuesday, we have two delightful sextile aspects to utilize. In the morning, Mercury sextiles Pluto giving us an opportunity to look forward and consider what area of deep study or contemplation you want to begin dabbling with. Full immersion in this study will come in mid-December. If you have something in mind that you want to study, or deeply understand, now is the time to begin exploring how you are going to go about this.

If the study of astrology calls to you; Astrolore has openings for new students!  Contact me to discuss this possibility!

Later in the day, the Sun is sextile Jupiter. Consider what came into your life, or expanded in late August of 2015. Did you begin a new health, dietary, or work regime at that time? Did you have a significant insight on how to better care for yourself or how to be of more service to others? Revisit that issue now. If you have fallen off the wagon, get back on. You will be surprised that you feel invigorated once again by this issue.

Expand your commitment to yourself or your service to others.

“Those who bring sunshine into the lives of others, cannot keep it from themselves.” ~ James M Barrie

SCORPIO NEW MOON – NEW DEPTH

Wednesday, November 11, 2015:

Wednesday’s Scorpio New Moon occurs at 12:48 PM EST.

New Moons bring us to the end of one lunar cycle (a 28 day cycle) and the beginning of another. Possibilities present themselves as we become aware of new ideas and new plans that will support our journey into the future.

The last few days before a New Moon we should try to release old habits and old beliefs. By Wednesday afternoon/evening, we can imagine ourselves in the future with inventive new opportunities. Consider carefully what you wish to begin.

Be prepared to make a fresh start. Begin something you want to see completed over the coming month. The time between the New Moon and the Full Moon (November 25th) is a time of building; the two weeks following the Full Moon bring clarity and release.

Any relationships begun or reinvigorated at this time will bring depth, intensity, and healing. Actually, anything begun at this time will bring depth and intensification.

Be aware of how much intensity you want and proceed with caution and awareness.

“The purpose of life is to discover your gift. The meaning of life is to give your gift away.” ~ David Viscott

 

 

DIPLOMATIC ASSERTIVENESS 

Thursday, November 12, 2015:

Thursday bring a significant energetic shift as Mars enters Libra. Let’s not try to kid ourselves; Mars does not enjoy his time in Libra. Think about it. Mars is all about individual action. Mars thinks nothing of expressing anger and self-promotion directly and deliberately. Mars takes a second seat to no one.

Libra, on the other hand, is all about diplomacy, refinement, and grace. Mars feels restricted and uncomfortable here. In his frustration, he may resort to passive aggressive behavior here. Watch yourself for those tendencies!

If you notice yourself stuffing your anger or assertiveness down, consider how it can be expressed through Libra. Be diplomatic without being indecisive. Be clear about what you want even as you present your assertiveness gently! A tricky thing at best! It is important to work with full awareness.

Mars will happily move out of Libra and into Scorpio on January 3, 2016.

You may find yourself feeling that some situation or circumstance is not fair. Relax, let it go. Work diplomatically with awareness and clarity.

“Though no one can go back and make a brand new start, anyone can start from now and make a brand new ending.” ~ Carl Bard

 

 

OPPORTUNITIES AND EXCITEMENT

Friday, November 13, 2015:

So many sextiles this week! Two on Friday offer a day of excitement and opportunity!

Venus sextile Saturn is a time that will support the stabilization of your values, financial situation, or love relationships. Sextiles do not make anything happen. They simply offer you the opportunity. It is up to you to take action on your desires.

In early January 2016, you will begin a new cycle of stabilizing your values, money, or love. Whatever you need to release of the last cycle should be done now to prepare you for a more responsible and mature approach to these important issues in your life.

Mercury sextile Jupiter offers a different kind of possibility. Think back to August 2015. At that time, you began expanding your thinking, communications, or some intellectual growth. Perhaps, you have nearly forgotten what seemed so important then.

Now, you have the opportunity to pick up the pieces and explore where that interest may still be calling you. No direct action needs to be taken now, simply an exploration of the possibilities. Find the place where this brings excitement and juiciness! A direct action toward this expansion of intellect or awareness will be required in early December at the square between Mercury and Jupiter.

For this Friday and through the weekend, enjoy the opportunities presented to explore some intellectual endeavor and to stabilize your values and love.

If the only prayer you said in your whole life was, “Thank you,” that would suffice.” ~ Meister Eckhart

SEEK DIFFERENT VIEWPOINTS

Saturday, November 14, 2015:

The Moon is VOC* in Sagittarius throughout the day until she enters Capricorn at 7:22 PM EST.

Enjoy a quiet, laid back day. Don’t expect much from others. Don’t demand much of yourself.

Visit with friends. Walk in the woods. Seek out the viewpoints of folks who have a very different perspective on the world. Go to a museum, open your mind to a new view.

Once the Moon enters Capricorn (7:22 PM EST), you will feel the shift. You may suddenly want to get to work and accomplish something significant. Don’t let yourself fall into the trap of feeling badly about the day slipping by without anything to show for it. It is just as it is supposed to be.

Sunday will allow for more focus and well directed effort.

“Life must be lived and curiosity kept alive. One must never, for whatever reason, turn his back on life.” ~ Eleanor Roosevelt

 

 

ENJOY ACCOMPLISHMENT

Sunday, November 15, 2015:

Sunday is a great day for work and accomplishment. Your happiness and sense of well being will be greatly increased if you focus on doing whatever gives you a sense of self respect and a feeling of being capable.

You may feel serious, reserved and long for time alone. You may feel lonely and yet you know that being alone is important.

A Sunday with a Capricorn Moon can be great for preparing for the week ahead. You are serious and responsible. Duty calls and you are ready to answer that call.

Enjoy accomplishment.

“Trust yourself. Create the kind of self that you will be happy to live with all your life. Make the most of yourself by fanning the tiny, inner sparks of possibility into flames of achievement.” ~ Golda Meir
