In the Stars December 9-16, 2018…shining light on the astrology of the week

The holiday season continues to sparkle with the glow of the Sun and Jupiter in exuberant, optimistic Sagittarius, and Mercury joins the Sagittarian party on Wednesday. Mercury is now direct, though still in its shadow phase through December 24th, so until then there is still some of the retrograde effect. However, we can now begin to move forward with the plans we re-thought and re-worked over the last few weeks. The aspect of the week is the Uranus-Neptune semi-square that perfects on Tuesday. This aspect symbolizes higher consciousness, wisdom, vision, and imagination. Consider how you could tap into this uplifting, creative energy. The Moon is void of course in Pisces all day on Saturday; plan to attend an artful holiday event that day. Do Christmas shopping on Sunday rather than on Saturday, as it is difficult to make clear choices when the Moon is void.

The weekend grind continues on Sunday with more demands for serious, hard work from the Capricorn Moon. Morning is a little softer, as a result of a benefic lunar aspect to Neptune. However, Sunday evening’s lunar conjunction to Pluto is a serious, strong, demanding end to the weekend. Lean into your goals and tasks for the week ahead and make a strong plan for great accomplishment.

Feeding off the serious, hard-working Capricorn Moon, we get a good, practical, goal-oriented start on Monday morning. Then, we have a void of course Moon period from 1:27 p.m. to 3:39 p.m. when we can relax into routine tasks, rather than try to make things happen. At 3:39 p.m. the Moon moves into Aquarius tropically, opening us to other points of views, and turning us toward our friendships. Meet a friend for happy hour or dinner.

Tuesday is a friendly, high-spirited day, thanks to a Jupiter-Moon sextile. An edgy Mercury-Uranus quintile aspect may make us jittery and distracted, though Mercury-Uranus aspects are electric and creative. We can detach and ponder loftier goals. Wednesday is yet another friendly, sunny day, colored by an opportunistic, freedom-loving Sun-Moon sextile. Tuesday and Wednesday are good days to consider the charities you want to support before the year’s end and make donations.

Thursday and Friday are colored beautiful by a sensitive Pisces Moon. Thursday’s aspects are mixed, with some benefic, and others challenging. We wake up inspired and uplifted on Friday, and are carried through the day on a cloud of possibilities. Toward evening we become more focused and determined. Relationship issues are highlighted. Enjoy a film and an elegant dinner with someone you love.

The Moon is void of course all day on Saturday from 3:49 a.m. through 4:44 p.m. PST.  Although you may want to go Christmas shopping since we are 10 days away from Christmas, this is not a good day to do it. When the Moon is void of course our decision making is clouded. Purchases often need to be returned due to the wrong size or color, or simply a poor choice. Better, spend the time attending a holiday play or concert. I’ll be visiting an art exhibit at San Francisco’s DeYoung Museum, and having high tea with friends. The Moon makes a fresh start in bold Aries at 4:44 p.m. PST. If you do not already have plans, do something energizing and sparkling, spontaneously.

A lot can be accomplished on this powerful Sunday with the energy of the cardinal, action-oriented Aries Moon. A benefic Mars-Pluto sextile packs additional punch. Get moving and you can complete numerous tasks quickly.

On Monday, get up early and head to the gym for vigorous exercise to energize your work week. Use the early morning Moon-Pluto square to challenge yourself. A flowing Sun-Moon trine helps smooth out the rough edges of the challenging aspects that bookend the day. Evening may bring a few surprises or disruptions.

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 December 2-9, 2018…shining light on the astrology of the week: New Moon

‘Tis the season, with the Sun and Jupiter in sunny, optimistic Sagittarius, combining with the Sun this week to form an exuberant, hopeful New Moon. We can say “Yes” to the holidays. Jupiter in Sagittarius encourages us to expand our knowledge through travel, study, and adventure. Mercury turns direct  on December 6th, and then communications will begin to clear. Enjoy the expansiveness and the sparkle of the holiday season ahead.

* * * * * * * *

Sunday is an edgy, volatile day. Lean into your work and keep moving. Venus moves into passionate Scorpio. The Sun makes a pushy square to Mars, and the Moon adds to the troubling energy when it makes a square aspect to Pluto. Use this volatile energy to get a lot of work accomplished, rather than bottling it up and then releasing it in some less-than-desirable way. Be careful about what you do and say, as this strong, hot, aggressive energy abounds on Sunday. Plan carefully how you will release tension appropriately.

Monday, December 3, the Libra Moon is opposed by Uranus, possibly knocking many things off balance. After a two-hour void of course Moon late morning (10:16 a.m. – 11:55 a.m.), then Luna moves into the deep, dark waters of Scorpio, joining Venus, amplifying our emotions and passions. A benefic Mercury-Chiron trine enables healing conversations.

Emotional sensitivity and compassionate understanding infuse our lives through benefic aspects in water signs on Tuesday. The Scorpio Moon makes a flowing trine to Mars and Neptune, and retrograde Mercury (in Scorpio) makes benefic aspects to the Moon’s nodes. Intuition and understanding are strong. Fences can be mended today. Issues with strong emotional content can be addressed successfully. Express the love and appreciation that you feel.

Wednesday is a day to pause, and drink in the beauty that surrounds you. Inspiration infuses you. Allow the day to be easy. The Moon is void of course from 1:52 p.m. through 6:49 p.m. PDT, a time period framed for routine tasks rather than meetings and definitive actions. After the Moon bursts into Sagittarius at 6:49 p.m. PDT, you may get a few things accomplished before bedtime.

We bounce out of bed with vim, vigor, and enthusiasm on Thursday, buoyed by a Moon-Jupiter conjunction in the sunny sign of Sagittarius. Later in the evening the Moon joins the Sun to make a New Moon at 15:07 Sagittarius. Mercury turns direct in motion, and communication will start to clear and be more straightforward in the coming days. This New Moon in Sagittarius uplifts us toward greater spiritual aspirations. Sagittarius symbolizes world-wide cultures, philosophies, religions, and spirituality, as well as travel. Sagittarius loves adventure, and expanding worldviews and consciousness. How will you lift your life higher in one or more of these areas? Today is the day to set new intentions for the next month in these areas or themes.

Mars and Neptune, two planets with quite different agendas, are exactly conjunct in the sign of Pisces on Friday. While this alignment can compromise energy, and lead to nowhere, or confusion, in its higher manifestation it can encourages us to give ourselves to selfless service. I’ve done this by recently being elected to the Sonoma Valley Unified School District Board of Trustees, in addition to my service to the astrological community as president of the San Francisco NCGR (National Council for Geocosmic Research) www.ncgrsanfranciso.org. Consider how you could spring into public service. Mars is activating the Uranus-Neptune semi-square that perfects December 15, and continues through mid-2019. The Uranus-Neptune semi-square symbolizes raising consciousness, and enables us to move beyond the limitations of the physical plane.

Although it is the weekend, Saturday is framed for work, The Moon is in cardinal earth Capricorn, symbolizing work and accomplishment. Take advantage of this serious, driven energy to get many tasks on your holiday list accomplished. The Moon conjuncts Saturn, drawing us to our duties. At the end of this day, look back, satisfied, about how much you accomplished.

The weekend work grind continues on Sunday with more demands for serious, hard work from the Capricorn Moon. Morning is a little softer as a result of a benefic lunar aspect to Neptune. However, Sunday evening’s lunar conjunction to Pluto is a serious, strong, demanding end to the weekend. Lean into your goals and tasks for the week ahead and make a strong plan for great, or at least satisfying, accomplishment.

Feeding off the serious, hard-working Capricorn Moon, we get a good, practical, goal-oriented start on Monday morning. Then, we have a void of course Moon period from 1:27 p.m. to 3:39 p.m. when we can relax into routine tasks, rather than trying to make things happen. At 3:39 p.m. the Moon goes into Aquarius, opening us to other points of views, and turning us toward our friendships. Meet a friend for happy hour or dinner.

In the Stars November 25-December 2, 2018…shining light on the astrology of the week

The Sun shot into Sagittarius on Thursday, November 22, Thanksgiving Day, in the light of a Full Moon, signaling the beggining of the holiday season. Jupiter has just shifted into its ruling sign Sagittarius tropically for a one-year stay, where it will be uplifting and well-functioning. Jupiter in Sagittarius encourages us to expand our knowledge through travel, study, and adventure. Mercury is retrograde until December 6th,, so continue to review, revise, re-negotiate, and re-organize. Be patient with mix-ups, mistakes, and breakdowns, which tend to happen more frequently when Mercury is retrograde. And, enjoy the expansiveness and the sparkle of the holiday season ahead.

* * * * * * * *

At the end of the holiday weekend, as we prepare for the week ahead, we welcome the energetic energy of a Moon-Mars trine. This is helpful for undertaking the numerous household tasks that need to be accomplished. A Moon-Saturn opposition calls us to our duties and responsibilities. The Sun is conjunct Jupiter, giving vitality, buoyancy, and optimism. After a productive work day, we can relax into an inspired, joyful evening.

Monday’s vibe is contentious, irritable, and edgy. Think twice, or maybe three times, before you speak. A Mercury-Mars square may trigger communication that you could regret. An opposition of Pluto to the Cancer Moon can engender volatile, deep feelings. To make matters worse, Venus squares the Moon and Pluto. This is a day to be particularly conscious of your interactions with others, and how you express your feelings. It would be best to use this pushy, uncomfortable energy to get a lot of work accomplished, rather than to allow it to get yourself into tangles. We are capable of sensibly taking calculated risks.

In stark contrast to Monday’s challenging vibe, Tuesday is golden! A courageous Leo Moon makes benefic trines to Jupiter, Mercury, and the Sun, planets that are all three conjunct in early Sagittarius. Mars makes a flowing sextile to Saturn. The planetary alignments make this a particularly brilliant day. Use it wisely. Go for the gold!

Wednesday is another day full of promise and possibility. There are no exact major aspects. The Sagittarius Sun is still conjunct Mercury and Jupiter, still giving strong energy for inspiration, enthusiasm, sensible risks, and excellent results.

Get to work and get organized on Thursday, as the Moon moves into efficient, orderly Virgo. Numerous easy and difficult aspects both make for a busy, active day, probably laced with a few challenges. After a cloudy start on Friday, we are empowered by a Moon-Pluto trine in earth signs Virgo and Capricorn, enabling us to get a lot accomplished. Venus is opposite Uranus, and this aspect may bring surprises and changes in social encounters and love relationships.

The Moon moves into Libra tropically early Saturday morning, forming benefic sextiles of opportunity with Mercury and Jupiter. Libra loves the fine arts, and I’ll be expressing it by attending the play The Wickhams’ Christmas at Pemberly at the Marin Theater Company with some women friends, the host having her Sun in Libra. Choose your own Libran activity such as visiting an art gallery, enjoying a high tea, or going to a concert. Mercury is still retrograde, and dips back into Scorpio, drawing us into deep, dark unresolved matters for the next couple of weeks until December 13 when it again returns to Sagittarius. A Moon-Saturn square in the evening may make us feel edgy and unsettled about what we did not accomplish while we languished in the pleasures of the Libra Moon.

Sunday is an edgy, volatile day. Lean into your work and keep moving. Venus moves into passionate Scorpio. The Sun makes a pushy square to Mars, and the Moon adds to the troubling energy when it makes a square aspect to Pluto. Use this volatile energy to get a lot of work accomplished, rather than bottling it up and then releasing it in some less-than-desirable way. Be careful about what you do and say, as this strong, hot, aggressive energy abounds on Sunday. Plan carefully how you will release tension appropriately.

Monday, December 3, the Libra Moon is opposed by Uranus, possibly knocking many things off balance. After a two-hour void of course Moon late morning (10:16 a.m. – 11:55 a.m.), then Luna moves into the deep, dark waters of Scorpio, joining Venus, amplifying our emotions and passions. A benefic Mercury-Chiron trine enables healing conversations.

In the Stars November 18-25, 2018…shining light on the astrology of the week: Full Moon

Enjoy another few days of repose before the Sun bounces into Sagittarius on Thursday, November 22, Thanksgiving Day, and the holiday season begins. Jupiter has just shifted into its ruling sign Sagittarius tropically for a one-year stay, where it will be uplifting and well-functioning. Jupiter in Sagittarius encourages us to expand our knowledge through travel, study, and adventure. Think about how you might expand your belief systems and engage in new explorations of Sagittarian themes such as philosophy, religion, metaphysics, and exploration of other cultures. Mercury just turned retrograde for three weeks until December 6th. It is now time to review, revise, re-negotiate, and re-organize.

* * * * * * * *

In strong contrast to yesterday, the Moon bounces into fire sign Aries on Sunday morning at 7:56 a.m. PST. Start your morning with vim and vigor, and get moving. Get some strong, feel-good physical exercise. Lean into your goals and projects and give them the works.

The work week gets off to a strong and energetic start with the Moon in cardinal, action-oriented Aries. The planetary signature of the day is a feisty Mars-Jupiter square. The best of this energy gives courage and confidence in such strong force that powerful changes could be made, and new directions could emerge.

Moon conjunct Uranus is the aspect of the day on Tuesday—symbolizing reversals, change, and surprise. Shortly after this exact conjunction, at 3:43 p.m. PST, the Moon moves into Taurus, its place of exaltation, or highest functioning. Feast with the gods in the evening. Enjoy good food, wine, and music, and of course, good company, and in a beautiful setting.

A lot can be accomplished on Wednesday against the backdrop of an exalted Taurus Moon that makes a flowing trine to Saturn, the planet that symbolizes work and accomplishment. A benefic lunar aspect to Neptune uplifts and inspires us. We find beauty in our work and jobs well done, as we prepare for the holidays ahead.

Thanksgiving Day Thursday is buoyed by the Sun’s entry into Sagittarius tropically, and is lit up by the Full Moon. This year the transition of the Sun into exuberant, party-loving Sagittarius exactly lines up with Thanksgiving, the holiday that ushers in the holiday season through the New Year. Jupiter is conjunct the Sun, opposite the Moon, amplifying the energy of this Full Moon. Transformative Pluto makes benefic aspects to the Full Moon, increasing the power of this gregarious, party-loving Full Moon. The only caution in this Full Moon is to not be excessive—in communication, food and drink, and just about anything. Wisdom is the best of jovial Jupiter’s gifts.. Mars makes a challenging square to the Sun and Moon, keeping things in check. Don’t push the river, and all will be well.

Challenging energies abound on Friday. Give and take in communication. Check information twice. Edit your work carefully.

Neptune turns stationary direct on Saturday after a five-month retrograde spin since June 20. We can now turn toward new dreams. The Moon makes benefic aspects to Venus and Jupiter, amplifying positive energies and attainment of goals.

At the end of the holiday weekend, as we get ready for the week ahead, we welcome the energetic energy of a Moon-Mars trine. This is helpful for undertaking the numerous household tasks that need to be accomplished. A Moon-Saturn opposition asks us to tend to our duties and responsibilities. The Sun is conjunct Jupiter, giving vitality, buoyancy, and optimism. After a productive work day, we can relax into an inspired, joyful evening.

Monday’s vibe is contentious, irritable, and edgy. Think twice, or maybe three times, before you speak. A Mercury-Mars square may trigger communication that you could regret. An opposition of Pluto to the Cancer Moon can trigger volatile, deep feelings. To make matters worse, Venus squares the Moon and Pluto. This is a day to be particularly conscious of your interactions with others, and how you express your feelings. It would be best to use this pushy, edgy energy to get a lot of work accomplished.

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.

In the Stars November 11-18, 2018…shining light on the astrology of the week

The Sun continues to shine in Scorpio, drawing us deeply inward. Enjoy another ten days of repose before the Sun bounces into Sagittarius on November 22, and the holiday season begins. Jupiter has just shifted into its ruling sign Sagittarius tropically for a one-year stay, where it will be uplifting and well-functioning. Jupiter in Sagittarius encourages us to expand our knowledge through travel, study, and adventure. Think about how you might expand your belief systems and engage in new explorations of Sagittarian themes such as philosophy, religion, metaphysics, and exploration of other cultures.

Mercury turns retrograde on Friday. In the early days of this week, complete travel plans and agreements, sign contracts, and tie up loose ends. Prepare for the three-week Mercury retrograde period in which it will be time again to review, reconsider, re-negotiate, and revise.

* * * * * * * *

Sunday’s stage is set for serious work and accomplishment, The Capricorn Moon conjuncts Saturn on Sunday morning, guiding us toward our responsibilities. Neptune makes a benefic sextile to the Saturn-Moon conjunction, inspiring us to work toward our goals and intentions. The Scorpio Sun makes a benefic sextile to Pluto, giving the power and desire to be productive. This is not at all a lazy Sunday. Make the most of this strong and capable energy. I will be giving a lecture on The Astrology of Place at the Sacramento Chapter of the National Council on Geocosmic Research (NCGR).

Monday is yet another productive work day, this one framed by a Moon-Pluto conjunction in the morning, giving even more power and determination toward all that needs to be accomplished. Get your work week off to a rousing start. You can conquer many tasks on your to-do list.

There may be unexpected trouble on Tuesday, with the Moon joining the South Node and squaring Uranus. The Aquarius Moon is friendly and detached, so problems can be solved brilliantly, and with a big boost of positivity from the Moon’s benefic aspect to Jupiter.

Mid-week and mid-month Wednesday, the 14th is a friendly day for brainstorming brilliant idea. If you are researching a project, dive deep and open to discovery. Join with friends and colleagues for generative conversations.

Thursday is an active day full of aspects, mostly positive. Get up and go, and get your glow on. Be imaginative and creative. The day sparkles with good energy. Mars enters Pisces tropically, softening our desires. Incorporate swimming into your exercise routine.

Expect some wobbly, shifting energy on Friday. Venus moves direct, after a six-week retrograde stay. Mercury is stationary, turning retrograde. A planet’s energy is particularly strong when it stations, changing direction.  With Venus direct, we will now be in a more balanced place around money and purchases. With Mercury retrograde, it is now time to reflect, re-think, renovate, and revise for the next three weeks. The Moon is in Pisces, stirring aspirations and inspiration. Lots of shifting planetary activity makes for an active Friday that may not go exactly as planned.

Saturday is a soft, dreamy day. Allow yourself to sleep in and get plenty of rest. Be gentle with yourself and engage in something creative. Paint, dance, make a collage, or write poetry. Make it an easy, inspiring, creative day.

In strong contrast to yesterday, the Moon bounces into fire sign Aries on Sunday morning at 7:56 a.m. PST. Start your morning with vim and vigor, and get moving. Get some strong, feel-good physical exercise. Lean into your goals and projects and give them the works.

The work week gets off to a strong and energetic start with the Moon in cardinal, action-oriented Aries. The planetary signature of the day is a feisty Mars-Jupiter square. The best of this energy gives courage and confidence in such strong force that powerful changes could be made, and new directions could emerge.

In the Stars November 4-11, 2018…shining light on the astrology of the week: New Moon

The Sun continues to shine in Scorpio, drawing us deeply inward. This week’s New Moon in Scorpio draws us even deeper inward to ponder serious matters of concern. Plant new seeds of thought and intention at this New Moon. There is opportunity to heal psychological wounds, as well as to get financial matters and estates in better order. Jupiter shifts into Sagittarius tropically on Thursday for a one-year stay in its ruling sign, where it will be happy and well-functioning. Jupiter in Sagittarius will be a joyful, exuberant shift, enabling us to expand our belief systems and knowledge through travel, study, and adventure over the next year.

* * * * * * * *

After you push through the demands of a Moon-Saturn square early on Sunday, you can take it easy in the light of a lovely Libra Moon. Daylight Savings time ends at 2:00 a.m. on Sunday, giving us an extra hour in this day. Roll back your clocks one hour, unless you live in one of those places that never adjusts its time. This is a good day to curl up with a good book in the afternoon, and share an elegant dinner with your beloved.

Monday is mixed. We feel the emotional challenge of a Moon-Pluto square, energized by a Moon-Mars trine, and inspired by a Sun-Neptune trine. Keep your mind on lofty ideals, and push toward a great start on your goals for the work week ahead. I’ll be lecturing at Komilla Sutton’s San Francisco Vedic Astrology Fresh Talents Conference on The Nakshatras; How to Honor, Support, and Encourage Them.

Tuesday is election day, and it is sure to be full of tension and surprising results. Retrograde Uranus backs into Aries for a last dance in this cardinal fire sign through March 6, 2019. Uranus opposes the Moon, and squares the Nodal axis, forming a tight Grand Cross in fixed signs. This is a tense fixed energy pattern, and with Uranus in the mix, there may be stunning, unexpected events. Election night results are likely to be quite interesting. A Moon-Saturn sextile provides a practical, grounded influence. The Moon is dark, symbolizing a seed-planting time for growth in new directions.

A New Moon in deep feeling Scorpio affords us the opportunity to set new intentions around finances, and to clear emotional baggage. A Pluto-Vesta conjunction helps us sharpen our focus, and let go of what no longer serves us. An edgy aspect between Jupiter and Uranus requires extra effort to take advantage of creative opportunities.

Jupiter arrives in its ruling sign of Sagittarius Thursday morning where it will stay for the next year. Jupiter expands what it touches, and we will feel more open and trusting. Jupiter in Sagittarius will encourage us to explore, travel, write, publish, and open our minds to philosophy, belief systems, and higher wisdom. The Moon enters Sagittarius at 10:59 a.m. PST, after a void Moon morning. Jupiter and the Moon are conjunct throughout the afternoon, further amplifying the joy and possibilities. Optimism abounds on this magical day.

The big blue sky is the limit on exuberant, expansive influences on Friday. With the optimism of the Sag Moon and the exuberance of a Mars-Venus trine, we have the power to attract exactly what we want, A blind spot in this otherwise magnificent day is a Moon-Neptune square that may cloud our vision, and compromise our ability to see reality.

Set out for an adventure on this sunny Saturday. The Moon makes opportune sextiles to Mars and Venus, warming our hearts, and filling us with passion and enthusiasm. The freedom-loving Sag Moon trines independent Uranus, so we will want to take some space for ourselves. We may want to do something different from usual, and on our own. There are some testy aspects, as well, in this mixed day. An autumn hike or bike ride would be satisfying and invigorating.

Sunday’s stage is set for serious work and accomplishment, The Capricorn Moon conjuncts Saturn on Sunday morning, guiding us toward our responsibilities. Neptune makes a benefic sextile to the Saturn-Moon conjunction, inspiring us to work toward our goals and intentions. The Scorpio Sun makes a benefic sextile to Pluto, giving the power and desire to be productive. This is not at all a lazy Sunday. Make the most of this strong and capable energy. I will be giving a lecture on The Astrology of Place at the Sacramento Chapter of the National Council on Geocosmic Research (NCGR).

Monday is yet another productive work day, this one framed by a Moon-Pluto conjunction in the morning, giving even more power and determination toward all that needs to be accomplished. Get your work week off to a rousing start. You can conquer many tasks on your to-do list.

In the Stars October 28-November 4, 2018…shining light on the astrology of the week

We may experience more social unrest this week with Uranus square to the Moon’s nodes. The bomb threats to key liberal political figures is symbolized by this planetary configuration. Current stock market volatility is another expression of the Full Moon’s fixed Grand Cross pattern with Uranus involved. Venus retrograde moves back into Libra on Wednesday for a month-long stay in that cardinal air sign that Venus rules. Venus will turn direct on November 16th. For the next two weeks continue to review and revise finances, as well as express your artistic abilities. At the end of the week we fall back into regular time from daylight savings time. We will have more light in the morning, less in the evening. This shift in the day’s light is a signal to draw inward. Get more sleep. Nourish yourself, and take more time for solitude and renewal.

* * * * * * * *

The Moon is void of course most of the day on Sunday—until 4:27 p.m. PDT. This is a good day for a short excursion in your neighborhood to explore something new. Or, it could be a good day to continue to work on your backlog of email and correspondence. Make it a leisurely, pleasant Sunday. At 4:27 p.m. the Moon goes into Cancer tropically. Cook some delicious comfort food for dinner, and cozy up with family for a satisfying end to the weekend.

Monday bursts with hope. A Mercury-Jupiter conjunction trines Chiron, enabling us to use our words in beneficial ways that are a soothing salve for wounds or inadequacies. Adding to the glory are lunar trines in water signs (Moon in Cancer, Neptune in Pisces, Sun in Scorpio, Moon in Cancer). Engage in a productive start to the work week, blessed with an abundance of good feelings.

Mixed aspects and energies color action-packed Tuesday. A Grand Water Trine enables a positive flow of emotions, and ample intuition to make good decisions, even if rattled somewhat by lunar squares to Uranus and Venus. The Moon bounces into confident, courageous Leo in the evening (7:42 p.m. PDT).

Halloween Wednesday is a playful, creative day. Expect extraordinary costumes from your trick-or-treaters, and dress up in one yourself. Venus retrograde moves back into Libra at 12:42 p.m. PDT for a month-long stay, turning direct on November 16th. Venus’ backward spin in its ruling sign, also with the Sun in Scorpio, invites a tune-up of your finances. There may be some surprises in relationships. If so, work with the issues skillfully.

Thursday, All Saints Day, is another day of mixed energies. We may overreach and overdo, but if so, enjoy the ride. You may make some surprising discoveries. Overall this is a joyful, creative, generative day.

Put your life in order on Friday and Saturday, as the Moon is in efficient, take-care-of-things Virgo. This industrious energy for clean-up is further abetted by a productive lunar trine to Saturn on Friday, and a powerful lunar trine to Pluto on Saturday. Clean house, tend to details, and make your life more organized.

After you push through the demands of a Moon-Saturn square early on Sunday, you can take it easy in the light of a lovely Libra Moon. Daylight Savings time ends at 2:00 a.m. on Sunday, giving us an extra hour in this day. Roll back your clocks one hour, unless you live in one of those places that never adjusts its time. This is a good day to curl up with a good book in the afternoon, and celebrate your beloved with an elegant dinner.

Monday is mixed. We feel the emotional challenge of a Moon-Pluto square, energized by a Moon-Mars trine, and inspired by a Sun-Neptune trine. Keep your mind on lofty ideals, and push toward a great start on your goals for the work week ahead.

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.

In the Stars October 21-28, 2018…shining light on the astrology of the week: Full Moon

The Sun shifts into Scorpio tropically on Tuesday, drawing us inward for the month ahead. Daylight diminishes, and we are drawn to our inner light. This month of deep focus with the Sun in Scorpio gives us the opportunity for restoration before the razzle dazzle of the holidays when the Sun shifts into Sagittarius. Get more sleep. Nourish yourself. Take time for yourself. Read some good, stimulating books. Mystery or science fiction novels would satisfy the Scorpio Moon. The Full Moon on Wednesday shines light on finances. If the matters of your estate need some work, this would be a good time to attend to them.

* * * * * * * *

Sunday’s energy is magical. The Moon is conjunct the lesser-known asteroid Hygeia, asteroid of health. This good energy calls us to set intentions and goals to better our health. Aim to stretch yourself with a new exercise goal, or to eat healthier, or to drop a habit or proclivity that doesn’t serve your best interests. The Moon goes void of course at 4:47 p.m. PDT when the Moon makes a benefic trine to Jupiter. Plan the week ahead before the Moon goes void, and then relax into Sunday evening. It’s a perfect evening to unwind and watch a movie.

Monday morning’s desired fast-paced start with the Moon in Aries is thwarted by Saturn’s square to the Moon. Be patient, and attend to responsibilities and delays. The pace will pick up in the afternoon, and we can then be off to the races unencumbered. Monday is the last day of the Sun’s stay in Libra tropically.

The Sun shifts into Scorpio on Tuesday, drawing us into deep emotional territory for the next month. As darker days increase with the lessening of sunlight, we draw inward. It is important to honor the call for privacy and solitude for the next month. We want to dive deep into matters of concern. This withdrawal is necessary before the bold, social, party-oriented energy of Sagittarius in another month. The Sun makes an opposition to Uranus, meaning that we may be in for some surprises.

The Moon is Full on Wednesday, opposite the Sun in Scorpio. The Full Moon conjoins Uranus, while the Sun is conjunct Venus. This aspect could take us in new and surprising directions. Fortunately Saturn’s benefic aspects to the Full Moon  and its nearby planets will keep us grounded, and will help us address our obligations and limitations. The nodal axis squares these planets, creating a tight Grand Cross in fixed signs. There is a lot of energy in this Full Moon. We can move ideas, projects, and goals forward in new directions, with strength, dignity, and reason. Focus on financial matters over the next two days.

The sensual Taurus Moon aspects power planets Mars and Pluto on Thursday. We are fired up for a productive day if we lean into it. We may feel pushed beyond our comfort zone, and it would be better to meet the pressures of the day rather than resist.

Friday morning the Moon opposes Jupiter, making us feel happy and optimistic. This aspect begins a void of course Moon period from 7:49 a.m. until 12:41 p.m. PDT. A Venus-Sun conjunction adds to the joy. Finish your chores, water your garden, and beautify your space in preparation for a gregarious, social weekend.

Call a sibling, and catch up on correspondence and email on Saturday. A benefic sextile from Saturn to the Sun, and a Mars-Moon trine enable us to get a lot accomplished. However, Neptune’s square to the Moon can lead to misunderstandings, or missed or mixed messages. The Gemini Moon can give a short attention span, and make us want to do several things at once. Go for it! You can get a lot of things accomplished if you just go with your flow.

The Moon is void of course most of the day on Sunday—until 4:27 p.m. PDT. This is a good day for a short excursion in your neighborhood to explore something new. Or, it could be a good day to continue to work on your backlog of email and correspondence. Make it a leisurely, pleasant Sunday. At 4:27 p.m. the Moon goes into Cancer tropically. Cook some delicious comfort food for dinner, and cozy up with family for a satisfying end to the weekend.

Monday bursts with hope. A Mercury-Jupiter conjunction trines Chiron, enabling us to use our words in beneficial ways that are a soothing salve for wounds or inadequacies. Adding to the glory are lunar trines in water signs (Moon in Cancer, Neptune in Pisces, Sun in Scorpio, Moon in Cancer). Engage in a productive start to the work week, blessed with an abundance of good feelings.

 ***********

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 October 14-21, 2018…shining light on the astrology of the week

We are now in a deep dive into our work. Three planets in Scorpio (Mercury, Venus, and Jupiter) take us down into sensitive emotional territory, draw us inward, and focus us on research and getting to the heart of matters. Three planets in Capricorn (Saturn, Asteroid Vesta, and Pluto) propel us forward toward accomplishing our goals. These planets in Scorpio and Capricorn combine well to provide focus, depth of insight, and drive. Much can be accomplished with these energies, and next week they will be joined by the Sun in Scorpio as well.

* * * * * * * *

The Moon is void of course Sunday morning until 12:17 p.m., so you may as well linger over breakfast and enjoy a leisurely read of the Sunday paper. While you have experienced a playful weekend, at 12:17 p.m. PDT the Moon goes into Capricorn tropically, and it is then time to get to work. The Moon’s conjunction with Saturn draws us to our responsibilities even more so by early evening. Plan your work week ahead, and get a jump start on your tasks and goals. An evening Moon-Uranus trine draws out your intuition, which can serve as a guide for what is most pressing, and this aspect may offer up a few surprises as well.

The Capricorn Moon continues to focus us on our goals and aspirations on Monday and Tuesday. Numerous benefic aspects on Monday light the way for good ideas and satisfying productivity. Make the most of this magnificent Monday.

A First Quarter Moon on Tuesday gives us a push toward the goals we set for the month at the New Moon in Libra on October 8th. While there may be some interpersonal friction early in the day, the bumps smooth out in the afternoon.

On Wednesday the Moon moves into Aquarius tropically, focusing our energies on social, political, and intellectual matters. Aquarius Moon’s carefree, detached demeanor can help us navigate the sharp edges of three prickly squares (Ceres-Pluto, Moon-Venus, and Moon-Uranus). The cool Aquarius Moon allows us to not take things personally, and to keep us focused on the bigger picture, and the good for all concerned.

Thursday’s planetary energy is similar to Wednesday’s, perhaps simmering with a bit more heat from a Moon-Mars conjunction. Fire up your passions for passionate social causes that matter to you, rather than arguing with friends or loved ones.

The Moon is void of course all Friday morning until 1:30 p.m. PDT when it moves into Pisces. A visionary Mercury-Neptune trine is the aspect of the day, which may cloud us with confusion, help us solve problems, or inspire creative expression, or all three. Allow intuition to lead the way.

Saturday is a super sweet, dreamy day, colored by an inspiring Moon-Neptune conjunction, and a delightful Moon-Venus trine. This is great energy for the wedding festivities of a family friend where I’ll be spending the day. The wedding is in Fort Bragg, next to the ocean, a perfect natural setting for these water sign planets to sing and dance. The aspects are poetic, so if you the least bit inclined, put pen to paper and write a poem or an inspiring tale.

Saturday’s magical energy spills over into Sunday. The Moon goes void of course at 4:47 p.m. PDT when the Moon makes a benefic trine to Jupiter. The Moon is conjunct the seldom-discussed asteroid Hygeia, asteroid of health. This good energy calls us to set intentions and goals to better our health. Aim to stretch yourself with a new exercise goal, or to eat healthier, or to drop or a habit or proclivity that doesn’t serve your health. Plan the week ahead before 4:47 p.m. PDT, and then relax into Sunday evening. It’s a perfect evening to unwind and watch a movie.

Monday morning’s desired fast-paced start with an Aries Moon is thwarted by Saturn’s square to the Moon. Be patient, and attend to responsibilities and delays. The pace will pick up in the afternoon, and we can then be off to the races unencumbered. Monday is the last day of the Sun’s stay in Libra tropically.

Wednesday: Friendly, yet edgy day. Stay cool and accepting.

Thursday: Emotionally hot day. Channel strong feelings into good causes for the greater good.

Sunday: Magical day. Set new goals and intentions for better health. Relax and unwind in the evening.

In the Stars October 7-14, 2018…shining light on the astrology of the week: New Moon

This week begins with a New Moon at 15:48 Libra on Monday evening (exact at 8:47 p.m. PDT). New Moons are opportunities to set intentions for the month ahead in the area that it symbolizes. In this case, Libra symbolizes relationships and partnerships. The Sun makes an edgy, action-oriented square aspect to Pluto, perfecting on Thursday, October 11, yet influencing the entire week. While it can make us prone to power struggles, the aspect can also empower us to stand up for ourselves, and to tackle issues, particularly relationship issues, and projects that need a big push. From a sidereal perspective, Jupiter moves into Scorpio on Thursday, where it has resided from a tropical perspective since October 11, 2017. We may encounter experiences calling us to use our higher wisdom for transformation. Our current political climate is certainly full of opportunities.

* * * * * * * *

Sunday the Virgo Moon is void of course all day, making it a perfect day to attend to the myriad tasks that need to be done. At 6:10 p.m. PDT the Moon enters Libra tropically. The Moon is dark, calling us to withdraw from the world to focus on finishing things. After a productive weekend, relax with your beloved or a close companion and enjoy an elegant dinner.

Employ the Moon-Mars trine Monday morning for an energetic start to the week ahead. Start the day with yoga or other exercise. The Moon conjoins the Sun Monday evening to form a New Moon at 15:48 Libra. Since Libra is concerned with partnerships and marriage, and Venus has just turned retrograde, we are called to improve relationships and express more love, especially in close partnerships.

The Moon is void of course all day on Tuesday, so put your focus on routine, insignificant tasks rather than on meetings, initiatives,  and decisions. Mercury enters Scorpio tropically until October 31, inviting us into deep conversations. We may experience surprising revelations Tuesday evening, as the Moon opposes Uranus.

Wednesday is an active, edgy day, full of challenges and potential. The Scorpio Moon enables us to dive deeply into matters of concern. A Mercury-Uranus opposition may help us discover brilliant ideas through generative conversations. A Venus-Mars square may present money/financial concerns.

The Moon conjuncts Jupiter, continuing in deep feeling Scorpio on Thursday. The Sun perfects a square to Pluto, highlighting power struggles, as well as constructive uses of power. This energy rings true especially for Thursday, but influences this entire week. Juno stations retrograde, further highlighting issues in marriage and partnership which it symbolizes. While Jupiter has been in Scorpio tropically for a long time (since October 11, 2017), on Thursday Jupiter moves into Scorpio from a sidereal point of view (until November 4, 2019). From the point of view of Vedic astrology, Jupiter will change its focus in your life for the next year. Jupiter is happier in Scorpio than in Libra, but Scorpio is the sign of transformation, and there may be conditions and opportunities that arise that require you to use your higher wisdom to transform your life in the coming year.

The Moon transitions out of the deep, dark waters of Scorpio overnight Thursday and bounces into Sagittarius Friday morning to light the way for an adventurous weekend. Bounce out of bed Friday and start the day with exercise, preferably in the outdoors. Mercury makes a benefic aspect to Saturn. If there is writing or speaking on your “to do” list, this would be an excellent day to work on it.

While we may feel a bit lazy about getting out of bed on Saturday, and want to catch some extra dream time, once we get going the day is buoyant and sunny. We are invigorated for adventure, travel, and learning. Make it a fun, social evening with good company.

The Moon is void of course Sunday morning until 12:17 p.m., so you may as well linger over breakfast and enjoy a leisurely read of the Sunday paper. While you have experienced a playful weekend, at 12:17 p.m. PDT the Moon goes into Capricorn tropically, and it is then time to get to work. The Moon’s conjunction with Saturn draws us to our responsibilities even more so by early evening. Plan your work week ahead, and get a jump start on your tasks and goals. An evening Moon-Uranus trine draws out your intuition, which can serve as a guide for what is most pressing, and ths aspect may offer up a few surprises as well.

The Capricorn Moon continues to focus us on our goals and aspirations on Monday and Tuesday. Numerous benefic aspects on Monday light the way for good ideas and satisfying productivity. Make the most of this magnificent Monday.
