In the Stars July 23-30, 2017…shining light on the astrology of the week

We are less than one month away from the Total Solar Eclipse at 28:53 Leo that will traverse the United States from the Oregon Coast near Portland through Charleston, South Carolina. I’ve been in Northwest Missouri visiting family and friends where the eclipse path will be as it crosses through the Midwest, and excitement is building for viewing the eclipse. Eclipse events are impossible to predict, and they may occur up to three months before an eclipse or several months after. Perhaps you have already experienced some of the power of this eclipse. The first of two New Moons in Leo was on Sunday, July 23, at 0:44 degrees of Leo, the sign that symbolizes creativity, radiance, passion, and the heart. This is a new lunar month to be joyful, generous, and fired up to create. Paint your world with bright colors; dance to your favorite music. Take a leap forward with juicy projects and dreams. Be more generative and more generous, and to allow your inner light to shine brighter. Make courageous, creative commitments on this New Moon at the beginning of this week, and then at the Solar Eclipse on August 21 celebrate the progress, discoveries, and contributions that you have made.

The week begins with an action-packed planetary day on Monday. Among the mix is a brilliant Mercury-Uranus trine that fosters innovation, inspiration, and thinking out-of-the box. While this aspect is exact on Monday, its influence will be present all week. Another exact aspect on Monday, but active through the week, is a Venus-Saturn opposition, calling for limits on spending, and attending to finances such as paying bills, filing papers, and balancing accounts. The Venus-Saturn opposition demands attention on relationships. Honor and negotiate the limitations and sensitivities of close relationships. The fiery, exuberant Leo Moon is backdrop for these larger patterns, and it makes benefic aspects to Jupiter, Venus, and Saturn. This is an overall sunny, playful, creative day. Appreciate your amazing life, and the people who are special to you.

Time to tidy-up on Tuesday and Wednesday with the Moon in Virgo. Attend to details and errands. Put things in their proper places and clean house. Virgo’s vibration attunes us to health, so fit exercise into your routine, and eat a lot of colorful fruits and vegetables. Mercury moves into its ruling sign Virgo on Tuesday. Mercury functions best in Virgo where it is skillful, organized, focused, and attentive to details. Focus on projects that need to be completed, especially so because Mercury goes retrograde on August 13. Complete travel plans, contracts, and communication in the next three weeks before the retrograde period begins. The Sun is conjunct Mars in fiery Leo, a bold combination that gives strength and courage. A Moon-Pluto trine gives additional power of conviction to get a job done, or express what is in your heart and on your mind.

Thursday flows with cooperation and ease. The congenial Libra Moon sextiles Mars and the Sun, offering balance and equilibrium as we move through the tasks of the day.

Friday is uplifted by a Moon-Jupiter conjunction, though this upbeat energy may be upset at the end of the day by a Moon-Pluto square. Stay positive as you deal with jagged edges; this combo may be a catalyst for change.

A Venus-Uranus sextile may color the weekend with a few surprising opportunities. A lot can be accomplished on Saturday until the Moon goes Void of Course at 2:30 PM PDT. Get your Saturday shopping and errands done before the Moon is VoC (2:30 PM-5:23 PM PDT). Then relax. The Moon moves into the deep waters of Scorpio from Saturday evening through Monday. Draw inward and take some time for reflection. The end of the weekend is softened by a dreamy Moon-Neptune sextile. Plan the week ahead, get to bed early, and catch some dreams.

Thursday: Flowing day of cooperation and ease.

Friday: Upbeat energy for change.

Saturday:  Get errands done by 2:30 PM PDT. Then relax!

Ten Things to Do with Venus in Gemini (July 5-August 26)

  1. Go to a library book sale or second-hand store and buy some books that lead you in new directions.
  2. Exercise flexibility in relationship.
  3. Energize your social life. It’s time for conversation and connection.
  4. Acknowledge the various expressions of love in your everyday life.
  5. Write letters.
  6. Take short trips to enjoy the beauty in your neighborhood.
  7. Visit a neighborhood art gallery or exhibit.
  8. Host a neighborhood gathering (e.g., a 4th of July BBQ).
  9. Connect with aunts, uncles, or cousins.
  10. Think (and act) more flexibly with money matters—learn something new by listening to a book on tape about finances (you can get it from your local library) while driving

Moon Void-of-Course: This is the time when the Moon makes its last major angular aspect with a planet before it moves into the next zodiacal sign tropically. This void time, when the Moon is not aspecting a planet, but rather floating on its own, is a time when things don’t come together and it’s difficult to make good decisions. Purchases made during void Moons often turn out to be unsatisfactory and not work out. Appointments often don’t come together, and meetings don’t result in progress or sound, lasting decisions. We more easily get lost or meander in trying to get somewhere. The VoC Moon times for the next month are listed below so that you can plan meetings, decisions, and purchases at times when the Moon is not VoC; and use the void times for gardening, reading, and routine task work.

In the Stars July 16-23, 2017…shining light on the astrology of the week: New Moon in Leo

We are one month away from the Total Solar Eclipse at 28:53 Leo that will traverse the United States from the Oregon Coast near Portland through Charleston, South Carolina. At the end of the coming week, July 23, the New Moon forms at 0:44 degrees of Leo. Within this month, as the Sun moves through the tropical sign of Leo, we have two New Moons in the sign that symbolizes creativity, radiance, passion, and the heart. This marks a month to be joyful, generous, and fired up to express our passions and create. Paint your world with bright colors; dance to your favorite music. Take a leap forward with juicy projects and dreams. Imagine if we all took an evolutionary step forward this month to be more generative and more generous, and to allow our inner light to shine brighter. I encourage you to make courageous, creative commitments on this New Moon next Sunday, and then at the Solar Eclipse on August 21 to celebrate the progress, discoveries, and contributions that you have made.

Sunday contains a full plate of edgy aspects. The Moon joins Uranus and highlights the Mars-Uranus square that perfects on Monday. The Mars-Uranus square is a volatile combination, so you will want to be extra careful on Sunday, and over the next few days. Mars-Uranus is exciting. It is not a time to take risks with dangerous things, but it could be a good time for risks in new endeavors or personal growth. New inventions or relationships can emerge.  Challenge yourself to do something new and stimulating.

All things sensual are heightened Monday and Tuesday with the Moon in Taurus. The Moon is exalted in Taurus, meaning that it is high functioning. The Taurus Moon helps us speak well, and appreciate the beauty, smells, and tastes that bless our lives. Slow down and take time to enjoy the smell of the roses. Against this lovely backdrop Mars and Uranus clamor in a feisty square that may jag our nerves or ruffle feathers, exact on Monday, but then in effect for the next few days. The planetary combo is reckless, so exercise extra caution. This edgy planetary square can also break some things free from stuck places. Monday evening ends on a sweet, inspiring note (Moon sextile Neptune). Tuesday is golden with a trine between benefics Venus and Jupiter. The day is further boosted by three benefic lunar aspects to Pluto, the Sun, and Mars.

Wednesday’s and Thursday’s Gemini Moon promises clever and curious days. Wednesday is Mercury’s Day (Miercoles), and Mercury is Gemini’s ruler, giving us an extra dose of Mercurial, trickster energy. A Mercury-Saturn trine helps us ground our myriad thoughts. Thursday is loaded with planetary aspects equating to activity, mostly benefic. However, the Sun squares Uranus, which could bring some surprising twists and turns. Mars leaps into Leo, where it is much livelier than it was in Cancer. Our creative juices are stirred. In order to make the most of these aspects, be bold and clever, and open to discovery.

Focus turns to family on Friday and Saturday against the backdrop of a Cancer Moon. Friday is dreamy and sentimental. In tune with the flow of the day’s energies, I’ll be hosting a family dinner. Saturday steams with dynamic heat that is capable of the sort of alchemy that could destroy or create. The Cardinal, action-oriented Cancer Moon forms a dynamic Grand Cross pattern with Jupiter in Libra, Uranus in Aries, and Pluto in Capricorn. This is a turbo-charged planetary pattern that has great potential for change. However, go slow and be careful, as the pattern is volatile. The Sun changes signs tropically into Leo, the sign it rules. The next month calls for summer fun in the Sun! It is time for Summer vacation. My trip to Missouri for a vacation with old friends and family vacation is perfectly timed to begin on this day. Our family reunion begins on the New Moon in Leo which is also conjunct Mars. Four planets and the North Node are in Leo. This is an extra-hot combo, so heed the rays of the hot summer Sun.  Be sure to wear sunscreen and stay cool! Answer the call to splash and play.

Sunday brings a New Moon in Leo, conjunct with Mars. Time to play and create, and hang out with children. Set creative, courageous goals for the month ahead. This is a day for fun and pleasure. It is a very hot day with the New Moon conjunct Mars. Seek shade and enjoy the day.

The Week in Short:

Sunday: Edgy, volatile day. Do something new and exciting.

Monday: Delicious day! Speak kind words, and appreciate the beauty around you. Break free from old patterns.

Tuesday: Golden, blessed, benefic day! Make it moreso.

Wednesday: Ideas abound on this clever and curious day.

Thursday: Creative juices stirred. Be bold, clever, and open to discovery.

Friday: Dreamy and sentimental day for focus on home and family.

Saturday: Turbo-charged cardinal Grand Cross primed for action and change. Go slow and be careful, but make things happen.

Sunday: New Moon in Leo: Time for summer fun in the Sun. Stay cool and wear sunscreen.

In the Stars July 9-16, 2017…shining light on the astrology of the week

The Moon was Full at 9:07 PM PDT on Saturday evening, July 8, or early Sunday morning on the East Coast and in Europe. This was a fierce, potent Full Moon, as the Moon conjuncts Pluto, and Mars was conjunct the Sun. This explosive Full Moon contained Mars in its sign of fall, Cancer, and the Moon in its sign of detriment, Capricorn. However, the demands of the Full Moon were eased by a Grand Fire Trine between Saturn in Sagittarius, Uranus in Aries, and the North Node in Leo.

A tempestuous Mars-Moon opposition starts the day Sunday. The Capricorn Moon enables us to get a lot accomplished before 7:12 PM PDT when the Moon goes Void of Course. The last aspect of the weekend is a powerful Sun-Pluto opposition (exact at 9:31 PM PDT). These aspects are demanding–not a lazy summer day in the Sun. Step into your power, and answer the call for changes in your life that need to be made. Celebrate the progress that you made as a result of the past turbulent, volatile week.

Ceres, the asteroid symbolizing food and nurturing, moves into Cancer on Monday for a    2 ½ month stay until September 24. Ceres is at home in this nurturing sign. During these next two months we can express this energy through caring acts of affection, including providing wholesome, nourishing food to ourselves and our loved ones. Monday and Tuesday are light and breezy days. Benefic trines to Venus (Monday) and Jupiter (Tuesday) help ease the tensions of the past weekend. Both days favor connecting with friends.

It may be difficult to get started and off to work Wednesday morning, as the Moon is Void of Course from 5:40 AM-8:51 AM PDT. We meet the middle of the work week with the Moon in soft and sensitive Pisces. With the luminaries in Water signs, Sun in Cancer and the Moon in Pisces, these are emotionally sensitive days. On Thursday the Moon conjuncts Neptune, reinforcing the emotional, watery energy. The best of this combination gives great compassion, vision, and inspiration. Friday’s lunar sextile to Jupiter fosters generosity and good cheer. It is time for some good deeds. Over these three days, reach out to those in need. Donate to a homeless shelter or an organization serving the poor. Be an angel of mercy, and do some random acts of kindness.

The beginning of the weekend coincides with a big shift in the planetary energy from water to fire. The Moon springs into Aries at 4:52 PM PDT Friday afternoon, and continues through 10:04 PM  PDT Sunday evening. Saturday’s flowing aspects to Venus and Mercury foster ease and good relations. A lunar opposition to Jupiter can make us feel overextended, or challenge us to reach for the stars.

Sunday contains a full plate of edgy aspects. The Moon joins Uranus and highlights the Mars-Uranus square that perfects on Monday. The Mars-Uranus square is a volatile combination, so you will want to be extra careful on Sunday, and over the next few days. Mars-Uranus is exciting. It is not a time to take risks with dangerous things, but it could be a good time for risks in creativity or personal growth. New inventions or relationships can emerge.  Challenge yourself to do something new and stimulating.

The Week in Short:

Sunday: Demanding day ending a turbulent, demanding week.

Monday: Easy, breezy day.

Tuesday: Connect with friends.

Wednesday: Time for good deeds and generosity the next three days.

Thursday: Vision and inspiration are easily at hand.

Friday: Generosity and good cheer. Do some random acts of kindness.

Saturday: Benefic aspects spur us to action. Reach for the stars.

Sunday: Edgy, volatile day. Do something new and exciting.

In the Stars July 2-9, 2017…shining light on the astrology of the week: Full Moon

It is an extremely hot and volatile week, starting Sunday, July 2 with an exact Pluto-Mars opposition, and a Full Moon conjunct this explosive opposition on Sunday, July 9. These volatile aspects bookend the week. The 4th of July holiday weekend’s planetary activity is turbulent and explosive. Lie low and be careful. Keep your cool at summer gatherings during this period, where conflict may be provoked. Wednesday and Thursday there are some positive, optimistic energies flowing. This week’s powerful energy can also be used for good to get a lot accomplished, or to start a vigorous exercise regime.

You may be aware of the August 21 Solar Eclipse that will be visible in the United States from Portland, Oregon to Charleston, SC. Eclipses usually herald major events (positive or negative), but they are unpredictable, and difficult to forecast. Events related to the eclipse can happened up to three months before the eclipse and for up to three months after an eclipse. This eclipse is at 29 degrees of Leo, so if you have planets or angles near that degree, your life will probably be influenced by this eclipse. Of note, Donald Trump’s Ascendant (one of two possibilities) is 29 degrees of Leo, and of course, the leader of the country, or countries, where the eclipse passes through are strongly affected. It is likely there will be game-changing events as a result of this eclipse.

Chiron stationed yesterday (Saturday) at 28 Pisces, moving into a five-month retrograde period. Chiron symbolizes healing, and is key to making our lives whole. Tune into your wounds and pain, and think about how you could heal yourself, and make your life more robust over the next five months.

Sunday thunders as Mars reaches its exact opposition to Pluto. This volatile Mars-Pluto opposition is fueled by the Moon in Scorpio, stirring up intense feelings. Though this Sunday on the holiday weekend is probably packed with family and activities, consider that it is a particularly heated, volatile day. Be careful if you are driving anywhere. Resolve to make change, which the morning’s Moon-Uranus opposition could help us do.

The Scorpio Moon forms a Water Grand Trine with Neptune in Pisces and the Sun in Cancer on Monday cooling down the roaring heat of yesterday. Many of us will be on holiday, and this day before the 4th of July holiday calls for taking it easy with children and family. The day ends with a benefic Moon-Pluto sextile. Express those deep, good feelings to someone on your mind.

The United States’ Independence Day, July 4, is full of contrasting planetary activity and possibilities. Mercury aspects both Chiron and Uranus, generating brilliant, but conflicting ideas. The Moon is Void of Course all evening until 10:08 PM PDT. The fireworks shows on the West Coast will likely start about 10:08 PM, when the Moon moves into Sagittarius. Snap! Crackle! Pop! Enjoy the brilliant sparkling festival in the night sky.

Wednesday Mercury bounces into sunny Leo, coloring the world a bit brighter, and igniting it with optimism. The Sagittarius Sun aspects visionary planets Neptune and Jupiter. The hump day of this of this turbulent, volatile week lifts our spirits high. Celebrate! It’s a good day to hang with friends.

The optimism of Thursday’s Sag Moon is clipped by Saturn’s conjunction with the Moon. Stop and review your goals and plans. Vesta, the asteroid symbolizing the hearth, conjuncts the North Node, igniting creativity, courage, and intention.

Venus’ Day, Friday, is lit by a benefic sextile from Venus to Mercury, and the Moon is in a benefic trine to Uranus, giving us a plethora of ideas. It may be difficult to get going Friday morning when the Moon is VoC from 7:12-10:45 AM PDT. At 10:45 the Moon moves into Cardinal Earth Capricorn, helping us accomplish more and make up for lost work time this holiday week.

The Moon is Full at 9:07 PM PDT on Saturday evening, or early Sunday morning on the East Coast and in Europe. This is a fierce, potent Full Moon as the Moon conjuncts Pluto, and Mars is conjunct the Sun. This explosive Full Moon contains Mars in its sign of fall, Cancer, and the Moon in its sign of detriment, Capricorn. These weakened planets may not handle this strong emotional energy well. However, the demands of the Full Moon are eased by a Grand Fire Trine between Saturn in Sagittarius, Uranus in Aries, and the North Node in Leo. Another tight, sensitive aspect is Ceres at 29 degrees Gemini opposite Chiron at 29 degrees Pisces.

A tempestuous Mars-Moon opposition starts the day Sunday. Still, the Capricorn Moon enables us to get a lot accomplished before 7:12 PM PDT when the Moon goes Void of Course. The last aspect of the weekend is a powerful Sun-Pluto opposition (exact at 9:31 PM PDT). These aspects are demanding, not fostering lazy summer fun in the Sun. Step into your power, and answer the call for changes in your life that need to be made. Celebrate that you’ve made progress as a result of this turbulent, volatile week.

The Week in Short:

Sunday: Roaring thunderstorms! Mars makes exact opposition to Pluto. Extremely turbulent day. Use energies to make big changes, but don’t use words as weapons.

Monday: Cool down with family and loved ones.

Tuesday:  Independence Day! Contrasting planetary activity and possibilities. Brilliant, but conflicting ideas. Enjoy the fireworks!

Wednesday: Celebrate! The world is brighter and ignited with optimism and vision. Gather with friends to share the love and inspiration.

Thursday: Set goals and make plans.

Friday: Extremely volatile Full Moon. Keep your cool and engage with change.

Saturday: Turbulent, potent Full Moon. Lie low and be sensitive to strong energies at play.

Sunday: Demanding day ending a turbulent, demanding week.

Moon Void-of-Course: This is the time when the Moon makes its last major angular aspect with a planet before it moves into the next zodiacal sign tropically. This void time, when the Moon is not aspecting a planet, but rather floating on its own, is a time when things don’t come together and it’s difficult to make good decisions. Purchases made during void Moons often turn out to be unsatisfactory and not work out. Appointments often don’t come together, and meetings don’t result in progress or sound, lasting decisions. We more easily get lost or meander in trying to get somewhere. The VoC Moon times for the next month are listed below so that you can plan meetings, decisions, and purchases at times when the Moon is not VoC; and use the void times for gardening, reading, and routine task work.

In the Stars June 25-July 2, 2017…shining light on the astrology of the week: Mars opposite Pluto

The coming week is extremely hot and volatile. Read through this week’s blog, and consider how you will use this tense, explosive energy for good, and how you will steer clear of trouble. Mars continues at a high declination through June 29, beyond the limits that the Sun reaches above and below the equator, known as out of bounds (OOB). When Mars is OOB, the symbolic acts that reflect it can operate in an ‘out of control’ fashion. Mars has been OOB since May 14. We are prone to more violence and aggression when Mars is OOB, as evidenced globally by several terror attacks, shootings, and the big fires in London and Portugal. In addition, Mars is making an applying opposition to Pluto, an aggressive aspect. While Mars ends its OOB position June 29, the Mars-Pluto opposition perfects on July 2. The 4th of July holiday weekend’s planetary activity is turbulent and explosive. Lie low and be careful. Keep your cool at summer gatherings during this period, where conflict may be provoked. In its highest expression an OOB Mars can push a strong work agenda, and help us get a lot accomplished. You could also use the symbolism to start a committed exercise regime, especially one where water is involved such as swimming or rowing.

We may feel undernourished on Sunday in light of Saturn’s opposition to Ceres, the asteroid that represents food and nurturing. The day is edgy, exciting, and unpredictable (Moon square Uranus). Our imagination is fired up by a Mars-Neptune trine. Sunday evening you will be able to reflect back on an active weekend, and savor some sweet moments spent with family.

We feel good on Monday, buoyed and invigorated by the Leo Moon’s sextile to Jupiter. Sweet!

Tuesday’s glow is sunny and bright, as the Moon forms a Grand Fire Trine with Saturn in Sagittarius and Uranus in Aries. Mercury aspects Neptune and Jupiter, expanding our thoughts and firing up our imagination. Creative potential is easily accessible. Wrap up the tasks that you started earlier in the day when the Moon becomes Void of Course from 2:12 to 5:41 PM PDT.  The Moon enters Virgo Tuesday evening tropically, the sign that symbolizes health, so make a lean and clean dinner. Skip the meat and dessert.

The Moon shines in Virgo Wednesday and Thursday, signaling the time of the month to clean your house and office, and take care of dangling details. We are prone to arguments these two days with Mercury combining with Mars in moody Cancer, and opposite Pluto. Employ this testy energy in vigorously working on the tasks before you, rather than engaging in conflict. Think ahead about how you are going to handle this volatile energy. If you feel like you may explode over something, go for a swim or a walk first, and think things over. Tensions ease a little Wednesday evening with the help of lunar sextiles to Mars and Mercury, and Thursday with the help of a Moon-Venus trine. Still, the Mercury-Mars/Pluto combination is hot and fierce, and Mars is at its peak OOB position. Be conscious and intentional about how you are going to use these hot and volatile energies for good. Your mind will be active. It could be a good time to engage in a writing project, or do the research for a trip. Be careful not to use words as weapons. The Moon is Void of Course at 1:34 PM PDT Thursday, so don’t try to get anything done requiring meetings or decision making after that time.

Friday welcomes the Moon in Libra, inviting us to be socially engaged over the Independence Day holiday weekend. However, we are not going to be comfortable with the tensions of the Mercury-Mars/Pluto aspects still at play, and Venus squaring the nodal axis. Friday is the day that belongs to loving Venus. In the midst of the excess of tension and volatility, be intentional about expressing kindness and gratitude to others to maintain equilibrium.

Chiron stations on Saturday at 28 Pisces, moving into a five-month retrograde period. Chiron symbolizes healing, and is the key to what makes ourselves feel whole. Tune into your wounds and pain, and think about how you could heal yourself and make your life more robust over the next five months. Saturday’s usually sweet Libra Moon is agitated by hard aspects with Mars, Pluto, and Jupiter. Use the discomfort to propel yourself into action.

Sunday’s planetary aspects form an intense, crackling thunderstorm. Frustration peaks, as Mars reaches its exact opposition to Pluto. This volatile Mars-Pluto opposition is fueled by the Moon in Scorpio, stirring up intense feelings. Though this Sunday on the holiday weekend is probably packed with family and activities, consider that it is a particularly heated, volatile day. Be careful if you are driving anywhere. It is a day to resolve to make change, which the morning’s Moon-Uranus opposition could help us do.

I’m in Cleveland, Ohio, having given a lecture on Vedic Electional Astrology, and a workshop on Planetary Strength at the International Academy of Astrology (http://www.astrocollege.org/). Monday evening, June 26, I’ll be lecturing on Western Electional Astrology at the Lake County (Ohio) Astrological Association (https://www.facebook.com/LakeCountyAstrological/).

The Week in Short:

Sunday: Edgy, exciting, imaginative day.

Monday: Buoyant, invigorating day!

Tuesday: Sunny and bright, and loaded with potential. Moon VoC 2:12-5:41 PM PDT.

Wednesday: Clean house and take care of details. Stay cool.

Thursday: Industrious day, full of explosive energy. Use it for deep cleaning. Moon VoC at 1:34 PM PDT.

Friday: Testy, tense, volatile day. Express kindness and graciousness and maintain equilibrium.

Saturday: Another, hot, volatile day. Chiron stations retrograde. What wounds need to be healed?

Sunday: Roaring thunderstorms! Mars makes exact opposition to Pluto. Extremely turbulent day. Use energies to make big changes, but don’t use words as weapons.

In the Stars June 18-25, 2017…shining light on the astrology of the week: Summer Solstice and New Moon

The past week was a hot and violent one that included the the Republican Congressmen’s baseball practice, the UPS shooting in San Francisco, and the London high-rise fire. Mars is at a high declination, beyond the limits that the Sun reaches above and below the equator, known as out of bounds (OOB). When Mars is OOB, the symbolic acts that reflect it can operate in an ‘out of control’ fashion. Mars is OOB between May 14 and June 29. Aggression and violence may peak during a Mars OOB period, as we are seeing. In addition, over the next two weeks Mars is in an applying opposition to Pluto, an aggressive aspect. While Mars ends its OOB position June 29, the Mars-Pluto opposition perfects on July 2. The 4th of July holiday is going to be fiery and volatile. Lie low and be careful. Keep your cool at summer gatherings during this period, where conflict may be provoked. In its highest expression an out of bound Mars can push a strong work agenda, and help us get a lot accomplished. You could also use the symbolism to start a committed exercise regime, especially one where water is involved such as swimming or rowing.

Sunday is a bold, dynamic day. The Moon is hot and feisty in action-oriented Aries, highlighting the ongoing Jupiter-Uranus-Pluto T-square that symbolizes tension, expansion, and possibility. Mercury opposes Saturn, meaning we could feel mentally blocked or depressed. Rather, let’s harness the energy into determination and focus. Almost any surprising thing could happen as the Sun sextiles Uranus, especially if you seize opportunities.

Monday morning gets off to a strong start with our plans and goals for the week, backed by the Aries Moon trine to Saturn. A Moon-Uranus conjunction adds sizzle and excitement. Take a siesta while the Moon is Void of Course from 12:42-2:53 PM. Then the Moon moves into fixed earth Taurus, an invitation to enjoy leisurely a delicious, beautiful dinner.

The Sun rolls into Cancer on Tuesday, marking the Summer Solstice, the longest day of the year in the northern hemisphere. The day is packed with planetary activity. Two sextiles offer opportunities for creativity and brilliant ideas (Venus sextile Neptune and Mercury sextile Uranus). A sextile, which is 60 degrees from one planet to another, is a benefic aspect. Sextiles are opportunities, realized if taken, but if not taken, the good energy will pass you by. The Moon also makes sextiles to Mars and Neptune. Two other benefic aspects light up the day: Moon conjunct Venus, and Moon trine Pluto. All total there are six benefic aspects Tuesday. Say, “Yes,” to the possibilities this day brings to light up your life.

The Moon is Void of Course almost all day Wednesday—until 3:44 PM PDT. This is a mid-week work day for routine tasks and clean-up. This is not a day for meetings, appointments, or anything calling for a decision. The Moon then moves into chatty Gemini at 3:44 (PDT), fostering conversation and connection for the next two days. Make it a fun and sociable evening.

Thursday is Jupiter’s Day (Jueves), and this generally benefic day is expanded and uplifted by a Moon-Jupiter trine. This is a day for conversation and connection. Expect this exuberant day to deliver a lot more than usual, and make it so. Yet, the Moon is dark, so you may want to stay close to home in the evening.

Friday morning is demanding, with Saturn opposing the Moon, calling us to our responsibilities. Be productive in the morning, and then it’s time for another siesta, or attending to routine tasks, when the Moon is VoC from 11:45 AM-3:07 PM. The New Moon in Cancer ushers in a family-oriented weekend. It is time to set intentions for a new lunar cycle, but you will likely want another night close to home. Cook a good meal, and hang out with your family.

Packed with planetary activity, Saturday is anything but a leisurely weekend day. A Venus-Pluto trine turns our attention to love and money. Relationships can deepen. The Moon forms a cardinal Grand Cross pattern with Mars, Jupiter, and Pluto. This is a volatile aspect can help you get a lot accomplished, or it can lead to conflict over ruffled emotions. The day’s soft, benefic aspects (Venus-Pluto and Moon-Neptune) will lower the heat. Make this day count. What could you do for a loved one that would make a positive difference?

We may feel undernourished on Sunday in light of Saturn’s opposition to Ceres, the asteroid that represents food and nurturing. The day is edgy, exciting, and unpredictable (Moon square Uranus). Our imagination is fired up by a Mars-Neptune trine. Sunday evening you will be able to reflect back on an active weekend, and savor some sweet moments spent with family.

I’ll be in Cleveland, Ohio this weekend, June 23-26, giving lectures on both Western Electional Astrology, and Vedic Electional Astrology, and a workshop on Planetary Strength at the International Academy of Astrology.

The Week in Short:

Sunday: Bold, dynamic day. Seize opportunities.

Monday: A sizzling, exciting day gets off to a strong start.

Tuesday: Summer Solstice! Opportunities abound with six benefic aspects.

Wednesday: Moon VoC almost all day (until 3:44 PM PDT). Focus on routine tasks.

Thursday: Benefic, exuberant, expansive day, though the Moon is dark.

Friday: New Moon in Cancer ushers in a family-focused weekend.

Saturday: Planetary-packed active day. Sensitivity and compassion lower the heat on this volatile day.

Sunday: Edgy, exciting, imaginative day.

 Ten Things to Do with the Venus in Taurus (June 6-July 5)

In the Stars June 11-18, 2017…shining light on the astrology of the week

Jupiter turned direct on June 9, after a 5-month spin in retrograde motion. Now it is time to harness the big energy of the largest planet, and move forward with projects, goals, and significant things that have been on your mind. Against the backdrop of the Sun in Gemini, this is a friendly week, sporting planetary alignments for conversation and connection. Reach out to siblings, friends, and neighbors, as well as the global community. Chat it up, and see how your conversations change your life this week. (I’d love to hear about them: ccoleman829@gmail.com).

Sunday may be turbulent, as the Moon activates the Jupiter-Pluto square. This is powerful energy, and we may feel stretched beyond comfortable limits. However, we could all benefit from a benevolent push, couldn’t we? Use this challenging energy to lean in and push a project forward.

Unusual and unpredictable are the words of the day for Monday. The morning is not likely to be stable or predictable, but rather full of a few surprises. The Moon is Void of Course all afternoon, so certain not to go as planned, especially given that the Moon’s last aspect before going void is an edgy square to Uranus. Better to suspend plans and read a book, take a walk, or tidy up. At 4:45 PM PST the Moon goes into Aquarius. Then it is time to socialize with friends. Perfect backdrop for a book club meeting, which is what I’ll be doing.

It’s a talkative Tuesday, colored for friendly conversations. Mercury makes a benefic trine to Jupiter, and this combines with the Moon to make a Grand Air Trine—ideas abound and there is ever so much to talk about. This is a day for meetings, meet-ups, presentations. Connect with friends—and connect with just about anyone in your orbit this day. Make a point to reach out and be friendly.

Welcome a golden Wednesday shining with benefic, friendly aspects. A lunar sextile to Uranus calls for a different point of view. This day is dubbed for friendship; reach out to old and new ones.

Thursday and Friday are encapsulated by an ethereal Pisces Moon. A Sun-Saturn opposition will keep reality in focus on a day when we would rather escape it. All planetary aspects considered, we should be able to combine vision with practicality, and inspiration with duty. Thursday’s aspects offer the best possibilities for creativity and initiative, and for making magic in our everyday lives.

Neptune reigns on Friday, making a station and moving retrograde for the next 5 months until November 23rd. When a planet stations its symbolism is heightened, which in this case it would be inspiration, illumination, and imagination. In addition, the Moon conjuncts Neptune, amplifying the visionary thrust. Embrace your inner artist and express your creativity whether you are shopping, gardening, or writing a new song.

Saturday morning will be slow; the Moon is Void of Course until 10:55 AM when it starts a new cycle in Aries. Sleep in late. Enjoy an unhurried, nourishing breakfast. Indulge in a good read. At 10:55 AM PDT when the Moon bounces into Aries, it is time to get going!

Sunday is a bold, dynamic day. The Moon is hot and feisty in action-oriented Aries. It highlights the ongoing Jupiter-Uranus-Pluto T-square that symbolizes tension, expansion, and possibility. Mercury opposes Saturn, meaning we could get depressed. Rather, let’s harness the energy into determination and focus. With the Sun making a sextile to Uranus, almost any surprising thing could happen, especially if you seize opportunities.

The Week in Short:

Sunday: Turbulent work day. Lean in on a project.

Monday: Unusual and unpredictable day. Moon VoC all afternoon, so don’t waste time on meetings. Gather with friends in the evening.

Tuesday: Talkative Tuesday. Ideas abound. Make connections.

Wednesday: A golden Wednesday! Reach out to old and new friends.

Thursday: Make magic in everyday tasks.

Friday: Neptune station highlights illumination, inspiration, and imagination.

Saturday: Slow morning. Bounce into action in the afternoon.

Sunday: Bold, dynamic day. Seize opportunities.

 Ten Things to Do with the Venus in Taurus (June 6-July 5)

2. Cook delicious food to delight your taste buds.

7. Find some delightful new inspiring music.
8. Create a new playlist to inspire your everyday life.

Moon Void-of-Course: This is the time when the Moon makes its last major angular aspect with a planet before it moves into the next zodiacal sign tropically. This void time, when the Moon is not aspecting a planet, but rather floating on its own, is a time when things don’t come together and it’s difficult to make good decisions. Purchases made during void Moons often turn out to be unsatisfactory and not work out. Appointments often don’t come together, and meetings don’t result in progress or sound, lasting decisions. We more easily get lost or meander in trying to get somewhere. The VoC Moon times for the next month are listed below so that you can plan meetings, decisions, and purchases at times when the Moon is not VoC; and use the void times for gardening, reading, and routine task work.

In the Stars June 4-11, 2017…shining light on the astrology of the week: Full Moon

This week is full of fresh, emerging energy! Several personal planets change signs: Venus, Mercury, and Mars. Both Venus and Mercury move into the signs they rule, Taurus and Gemini respectively, where they are in dignity, functioning well. Mars, however, moves into Cancer, where it in its fall, or weak. However, all three planets will be in the first few degrees of a new sign for a few days, and Mars and Venus will be in a benefic sextile, giving strength to general planetary energy this week. Express this emergent energy by trying new things,  or start a project. You could wear something new (Venus); learn something new (Mercury); or start a new, gentle exercise program, such as swimming (Mars).

The Moon still shines in Libra on Sunday, but with mixed aspects that may upset our equilibrium. We may be swept off balance by something surprising. The sweetness and grace of the Libra Moon will help us navigate the waves of the day. Mars moves into Cancer, where, as referenced above, it does not function at its best. Mars’ temperament is hot and direct. In the cool waters of Cancer, our emotions may be stirred up, and may be difficult to express.

Monday through Wednesday afternoon the Moon is in Scorpio where it broods and can make us feel stuck in patterns of control and mistrust. Feelings run deep. When the Moon is in Scorpio we want some time alone to pursue our deep interests. Go slow and easy on Monday, and be patient with frustrating situations.

The Scorpio Moon’s benefic aspects to Neptune and Pluto on Tuesday lift our mood. Venus and Mercury move into the signs they rule, giving strength, as noted in the opening paragraph. Things are looking up. Try something new. Do not expect to accomplish much Tuesday evening, as the Moon is Void of Course. Cook something new for dinner, water your plants, and relax with a good book.

The Moon is Void of Course all day on Wednesday until 3:59 PM PDT. This is not a day for meetings or appointments or anything requiring decisions. Attend to simple, routine matters, or clean your home or office. Wednesday evening (at 3:59 PDT) the Moon bounces into sunny Sagittarius, bringing out the party animal in us. You may want to gather with others for happy hour or dinner.

The world looks sunny and bright in the glow of the Sag Moon on Thursday and Friday, days primed for adventure. A Moon-Jupiter sextile Thursday offers expanded opportunities, but a Moon-Neptune square may obscure our sense of direction. Find your way and lean into the possibilities.

A Full Moon lights up Friday, boosted by Jupiter turning direct in motion, after more than four months in retrograde motion, since February 6.  Now it is time to move forward, particularly in relationships, as Jupiter in Libra symbolizes partnership. Jupiter’s best expressions of growth, expansion, evolution, and knowledge and wisdom are set free in direct motion.

Against the backdrop of a cardinal earth Capricorn Moon, Saturday and Sunday are made for productive work. However, you have permission to take a break to relax Saturday afternoon when the Moon trines Venus.

Sunday may be turbulent, as the Jupiter and Pluto aspect the Moon. Use this challenging energy to lean in on a project that could benefit from determination and sustained work.

The Week in Short:

Sunday: Sweetness and grace will help us maintain equilibrium.

Monday:  Feelings run deep. Give yourself some time alone.

Tuesday: Things are looking up! Try something new (or several things).

Wednesday:  Moon VoC all day until 4:00 OM PDT. Don’t waste your time meetings or appointments. Attend to routine matters.

Thursday: Sunny day with expanded opportunities.

Friday: Full Moon.  Jupiter turns direct. Now you can move forward.

Saturday:  Work day, but you can take a relaxing break in the afternoon.

Sunday: Turbulent work day. Lean in on a project.

 Ten Things to Do with the Venus in Taurus (June 6-July 5)
1. Plant spring flowers in your garden.
2. Cook delicious food to delight your taste buds.
3. Get a massage.
4. Get a fresh hair cut.
5. Freshen your wardrobe.
6. Spray a delightful scent such as rose water around your face.
7. Find some delightful new inspiring music.
8. Create a new playlist to inspire your everyday life.

In the Stars May 28-June 4, 2017…shining light on the astrology of the week

The Sun still shines in Gemini tropically. This is a time for neighborhood or family barbecues, short trips, and summer reading. This is an energetic week for cleaning things up and getting things done. Give some time to planning on Sunday or early in the week, and organize for industry and efficiency. You can have fun while you work hard, supported by this week’s planetary gifts.

Be ready to rumble and tumble on Sunday. Emotions run high, and tensions build. The Moon shines on the ongoing Jupiter-Pluto-Uranus T-square, and Mars and Saturn oppose each other. Pick your battles. Put that strong energy to work cleaning out your garage or doing some heavy yard work rather than fighting with your loved ones.

Memorial Day glows with the light of a Fixed Fire Leo Moon in a benefic sextile to the Gemini Sun. It’s a great day for picnic or gathering, or anything with camaraderie, conversation, and fun. Enjoy the day!

Tuesday’s dynamic Mars-Uranus sextile shakes things up in a good way, and opportunity is within reach. Seize it. Both morning and evening are supported by flowing lunar aspects to benefic Jupiter (in the morning) and Venus (in the evening). This is an exuberant day, meant to be expressed with passion, creativity, and generosity.

After a slow start to this mid-work week day, due to a Void of Course Moon, the emergence of the Virgo Moon at 9:16 AM Wednesday gets things moving, and brings in the clean-up crew. It’s an industrious day with all benefic aspects, one for putting things in order and clearing up long-standing problems (Mercury trine Pluto). The wind is at your back, so use this day’s fine aspects wisely.

Venus-trine-Saturn is the aspect of the day on Thursday, the first day of June. Work will be enjoyable, especially with the backdrop of the Virgo Moon. Relationships are supported. It is a good day to organize your finances, and make financial decisions in partnership.

We have a rare third day with the Moon in Virgo on Friday, though this day’s aspects bring out the worry and fussiness of this mutable earth sign. Edgy squares to Saturn in the morning and Mars in the afternoon may make us tense and irritable. Channel the frustration into persistence and hard work. This is not a day for slacking. After a hard work day, relax into a social evening with loved ones, in the light of the sweet Libra Moon that arrives at 5:04 PM PDT.

Saturday is a bright, sunny, and exciting day. Venus conjuncts Uranus, calling for new flavors of fun. The Moon joins jovial Jupiter and makes a benefic trine to the Sun. Paint this day with fresh color and beauty and wear a smile on your face.

The Moon still shines in Libra on Sunday, but with mixed aspects that may upset our equilibrium. We may be swept off balance by something surprising. The sweetness and grace of the Libra Moon will help us maintain our balance as we navigate the waves of the day.

The Week in Short:

Sunday: Emotionally tense, active day. Focus strong energy on big projects at home.

Monday: Glowing, fun day to enjoy!

Tuesday: Seize the opportunity in this exuberant day.

Wednesday: Industrious day for clean-up and organization.

Thursday: Relationships supported. Good day to focus on finances. Work is pleasant

Friday: Channel frustration into hard work and getting things done. Then, relax and enjoy a romantic evening.

Saturday: Sunny, exciting day for doing something new.

Sunday: Sweetness and grace will help us maintain equilibrium.

Ten Things to Do with Venus in Aries (April 28-June 6)

  1. Get started on a creative project.
  2. Take a dance class.
  3. Add more color.
  4. Take a new hike.
  5. Say “yes” to a spontaneous offer.
  6. Wear red.
  7. Express appreciation out in the world when people help or serve you.
  8. Be a little more assertive, in a kind manner.
  9. Change your purse.
  10. Get moving—toward anything you love.
