Astrology Update, May 1st, 2017: Unquiet Moods

Early this morning the Moon in Cancer opposed Pluto in Capricorn, increasing our emotional awareness of the hidden forces in our lives and intensifying our feelings.  We were instinctively drawn to experiences that stirred up the deepest parts of our subconscious, causing us to act impulsively and compulsively, and may have found ourselves in conflict with those closest to us as a result.  Our most complex emotions may have worked their way to the surface during this time, including those we would rather have remained buried, such as jealousy, guilt, or a desire for control over the actions and emotions of others.  Since we were not likely to be thinking clearly at this time it was not a good morning for drawing any conclusions about what we were feeling, though thinking about the events of the morning with a clearer head later on may have yielded useful insights about parts of our psyches we don’t normally confront.  For those still asleep during this time, our dreams may have been disruptive and disturbing, and upon awakening we may have had a rough start to the morning as a result.

Toward midday the Moon in Cancer squared Mercury retrograde in Aries, putting our thoughts and emotions at odds, and making it difficult to communicate with others without conflict or misunderstanding.  We may have wanted very much to express our feelings during this time but found it difficult to do so in ways that others could relate to.  Or we may have held back on expressing what we felt but found ourselves behaving in antagonistic ways toward others as a result of our frustrations regarding what we felt unable to express.  And since others around us were experiencing similar frustrations, the early afternoon could have been a very tense time indeed for all concerned.  Our opinions were likely to fluctuate greatly during this time as well, increasing the likelihood of misunderstandings and confusion, and it was not a good time for decisiveness as a result.

A short while later the Moon in Cancer squared Uranus in Aries, increasing the volatility of our emotions and our instinctive reactions.  We may have felt restless and uneasy, easily upset, and may have found outer circumstances mirroring our inner disquiet through sudden changes and distressing interactions with others.  A sense of contrariness was stirred up by this aspect, leading us into disagreements solely because we are fed up with the status quo, wanting to upset the apple cart just to see what will happen.  We were likely to feel a bit reckless and experimental, aggressively devil-may-care and craving excitement and something, anything different, and anyone making emotional demands on us or otherwise restricting our freedom during this time was not likely to be looked upon kindly, even and perhaps especially those to whom we normally are closest.  This period started a void-of-course period lasting until much later this evening, so while that might help to minimize the long-term damage it also decreases our ability to think clearly, and we would do well to stick to our routines during this time, as the frustration and impulsiveness of the Moon/Uranus square wears off.

The Moon in Cancer trines Chiron in Pisces during the void-of-course period, increasing our capacity to reflect on the reasons for our distress as the night progresses.  We are in a better position to communicate what we feel with others during this time, especially when it comes to our sensitive quirks and hurt feelings, and we can have more compassion for both ourselves and others close to us tonight.  We are also better able to learn from our mistakes now, especially those involving deep emotions and our friends and family, and there is a real capacity for healing our wounds in the company of others tonight.

Late tonight the Moon enters Leo, moving away from the moodiness and sensitivity of the past couple of days and into a more exuberant and expressive state.  This is the time in the lunar cycle when our unconscious need is to be seen and heard, a time when our feelings take center stage and our instincts urge us to assert our own importance.  While this can lead some to become overbearing, it can also increase our passion, our creativity, and our conscious awareness of what we feel and our right to feel it.  We are far less likely to hide our feelings in the shadows during this transit, so emotions that we’ve been keeping under wraps will tend to out themselves now.  Our pride comes to the forefront now, and that can be a good thing, so long as we are willing to be gracious with others similarly feeling their own worth.  Thankfully, a leonine Moon is more magnanimous, more benevolent, and more willing to bestow the light of our own best feelings on those who do not tread too thoughtlessly on our domain.  Woe betide those we feel wronged by during this time, however!  The lion is not known for mercy toward its foes, and even the mousiest among us may roar now if we feel so stirred.  Still, most of us would much rather indulge in enjoyable feelings during this transit, and it can be a wonderful time for socializing and sharing what is best in ourselves with others in whom we appreciate similar expressions of magnificence and pride.

Astrology Update, April 29th, 2017: Loneliness and Home

Late this morning the Moon in Gemini sextiled Mercury retrograde in Aries and then Uranus in Aries in short succession, emphasizing the residual effects of yesterday’s Mercury/Uranus conjunction, so that our thoughts during this time continued to change rapidly, only our moods were in a state of flux as well.  Since the sextile is a gently harmonious aspect, these fluctuations were less challenging than they would be with a harder aspect, but still we were likely to be restless and wanting to shake things up, bored with the status quo and searching for excitement.  We were not likely to be shy about vocalizing our feelings under these aspects, and communication in general was emphasized, as was socialization and meeting new people.  This was not a time for focusing on important matters, as our thoughts were likely to be running too quickly to handle deep subjects or linger anywhere for long, and our moods were too fickle to sustain any real sense of dedication from late morning into the afternoon.  

Into this volatile mix of fluctuating thoughts and feelings comes a jarring square from the Moon in Gemini to Chiron in Pisces, with an opposition from the Moon to Saturn retrograde in Sagittarius a few minutes later, stirring up the rising tide of hurt and trauma invoked by tomorrow’s square between Chiron and Saturn.  The Chiron/Saturn square has been lurking in the background for the past several days, as these are slow moving planets whose influence is felt long before and after an aspect between them becomes exact, and the Moon’s interaction with both of them today creates a tense T-square formation with Chiron acting as the release point for the isolation and enforced stoicism of the Moon/Saturn opposition, triggering our awareness of painful life lessons brought on by harsh emotional interactions.  This can be an incredibly depressive time, as we gain a heightened awareness of the disappointments and failures in our lives, and our outlook leans toward the cold and grim and lonely.  While the Moon’s interactions with both Saturn and Chiron have the blessed brevity of lunar aspects, they are an uncomfortable foreshadowing of tomorrow’s harsh square between those planets that has the potential to colour our feelings for the remainder of the day.  There is also the possibility that today’s T-square configuration will heightened tensions during the climate change marches planned across the United States today, and since Saturn governs restriction and law, and in hard aspects with Chiron increases the potential for abuse, those who are marching this afternoon would do well to take extra steps for self-protection.  With its opposition to Saturn the Moon turns void-of-course for several hours, making actions taken during the late afternoon and early evening less likely to amount to anything of consequence, which may be a blessing in view of the abusive potential of the T-square, but which also makes it harder for political actions taken during this time to be heard and taken seriously.  Our judgement is likely to be impacted as well, so this is not a time for bold and decisive action.

The Moon enters Cancer tonight, the sign that it rules, making our emotions more sensitive and more potent, so that whatever we are processing during this difficult time of the Chiron/Saturn square is likely to take on greater emotional significance.  Our emotions now are likely to center around home and family, as our loyalty is increased during this lunar transit, and we may feel very protective of both ourselves and those we love, but are also likely to relate the hurts we are processing to family and loved ones as well, so the Cancerian Moon’s closeness to home is a mixed blessing this weekend.  We are more sympathetic and intuitive during this transit, but also more inclined to feel sorry for ourselves, which makes for a rough way to navigate the Chiron/Saturn square, increasing the potential for us to feel lost in martyrdom and victimhood.  The Cancerian Moon can also increase our imagination and creativity, however, so now is a time to transmute our most difficult feelings into art and imaginative solutions, releasing what we feel through music and dance.  It is also a time to put in the extra effort toward creating emotionally safe space with those we are closest to, as challenging as that may be against the backdrop of the Chiron/Saturn square, because the need for such space is near and dear to the Cancerian heart, and it is a need which is especially poignant this weekend.

The Moon in Cancer gets a little bit of much-needed support tonight from a sextile to the North Node in Virgo, giving us an instinctual awareness of the process of our soul’s growth and how our feelings tonight further that growth.  Though our moods may fluctuate, they do so with attentiveness to the details of our experiences, helping us to work through and learn from what we are feeling rather than just feeling tossed about on the waves of emotion.  We should take the time to let ourselves feel deeply tonight while we have the capacity to look at those feelings with clarity and insight, and see them in the larger context of our souls’ path to perfection.

Astrology Update, April 28th, 2017: Racing Thoughts

The Moon in Gemini started the day off with an early morning conjunction to Mars in Gemini, aligning our instincts and emotions with our aggression and sexual drive, giving us a need for action that fulfills the demands of our curiosity.  This aspect increased the potential for impulsiveness and irritability as well, so perhaps it is a blessing that most of us in the Western Hemisphere were asleep for this one, but for those early risers just waking up it could have granted an extra boost of strength and determination with which to start our day, so long as we didn’t get entangled in unnecessary conflicts along the way.  

This aspect set the stage for Venus’ re-entry into Aries a few hours later, when our affections became both more flirtatious and more independent, our pleasures more self-determined.  This is territory that we’ve crossed before – twice, thanks to Venus’ recent retrograde – but now she is more sure of herself, more confident and direct and even demanding, unwilling to accept promises of pleasure that do not satisfy her needs for adventure and self-fulfillment.  Our connections with others are less soft and sultry now, more brusque and unconcerned with diplomacy, but not lacking for warmth or passion when the flame of desire is kindled.  Venus in Aries is not in the magnetic modality that she prefers, but she will make the best of the terrain in seeking new amorous adventures to amuse herself with, and with the Moon in Gemini our hearts are not likely to turn down the ride, even if they gain a few bruises along the way.

A short while later the Moon in Gemini opposed Black Moon Lilith, heightening the awareness of our unconscious, while creating tension between our desire for information and our ability to synthesize individual pieces of data into the whole picture, along with our capacity to communicate that information on a personal scale versus a grand scale.  Gemini/Sagittarius oppositions emphasize the polarity of near and far, personal versus social, thought versus belief, and in this case that polarity was being worked through on the unconscious and emotional levels, so we may have found ourselves instinctively see-sawing between different ideas and processes this morning, trying to find something that fits, while no one solution would do the trick.  What was required was integration of the spectrum between the two, and with Black Moon Lilith involved that meant immersing ourselves in the frustrations of the polarity until we could fully appreciate the spectrum.

This aspect was followed within minutes by a conjunction between Mercury and Uranus in Aries, further emphasizing fire and action in our thoughts and intuitive processing.  Our minds have been moving at lightning speed today, but we may have had trouble focusing as a result, especially with the unconscious background of our fluctuating Gemini moods.  Communication is also likely to be moving at high speed today, and those of us who prefer to carefully think things through may have had trouble keeping up.  Excitement and uncertainty are amplified by this aspect, with sudden insights and breakthroughs in technology, mathematics, science, and commerce being the harvest for those who can adapt to the breakneck pace.  This is a great time for solving puzzles, but we should be careful not to mistake assumptions for truth, especially when we are dazzled by new ideas that break us out of old routines but haven’t yet been proven.  Experimentation and testing are the name of the game under this influence.  Those of us prone to anxiety and nervousness are likely to struggle today, and we may need to consciously limit our stimuli to get through it.  Burnout is a real danger at this time, as are accidents while traveling.

More sensitive types may find it all a bit too much during the late afternoon and early evening, when the Moon in Gemini squares Neptune in Pisces and we are likely to want very much to retreat into fantasy.  Introverts are especially likely to be challenged at this time, and we may need to take steps to protect ourselves from the emotional fallout of the day.  We should be especially wary of being led astray, whether by our own wishful thinking or actual deception on the part of others, and it is important not to make any important decisions at this time.  The Mercury/Uranus conjunction in Aries makes this especially crucial, since Aries is headstrong and cocksure, and may have us thinking that whatever madness Mercury and Uranus have concocted together is absolutely the right thing to do or say.  This is not a time to take anything at face value, as our perceptions are distorted by our emotions now.  Those of us prone to escaping through alcohol or drugs need to be particularly careful now – the temptation to indulge will be strong, but far more likely to cause trouble than not.

Tonight the Moon in Gemini trines Jupiter retrograde in Libra, which can bring some optimism and friendliness to help clear the fog of the Moon/Neptune square, but can also make us prone to grandiosity and over-the-top gestures, and in combination with the Mercury/Uranus conjunction could make for a wild night with potential hard consequences in the morning.  Jupiter is a benevolent influence, but retrograding in Libra is likely to draw to us situations that have us reconsidering our sociability and our relationships, and with the wild card of Mercury/Uranus in the mix we may find that Jupiter’s fun-loving influence on our emotions and instincts may get led astray by our impulses.  On the plus side, our sense of connection to others and willingness to help each other is enhanced by this aspect, but so is our willingness to give each other the benefit of the doubt – great when it helps us to overcome prejudices and be kind to our fellow man, but not so great when it leads us to ignore our common sense.  So long as we enjoy the warmth and affection of this aspect for what it is and still keep some measure of self-preservation on our radar, this can be an enjoyable night with the potential for healthy expansion of our point of view, connecting hearts and enlivening minds.

Astrology Update, April 25th, 2017: Bright Day, Restful Night

This morning got started in the wee hours with a challenging square from the Moon in Aries to Pluto retrograde in Capricorn, putting our emotions and instincts at odds with the hidden and transformational forces in our lives, and ratcheting up our obsessive tendencies and fears of losing control.  For those of us in the Western Hemisphere, this aspect most likely only troubled our dreams, but for those of us who were awake at that hour we may have found ourselves engaged in unexpected power struggles regarding our autonomy, particularly in relation to work or in dealing with the institutions in our lives, and those of us waking up early may have still experienced residual frustrations or impediments to our self-direction as a result of this aspect.  

The rest of the morning was fairly quiet until around midday when the Moon in Aries conjuncted Uranus in Aries, increasing feelings of restlessness as it amplified our desire to be free of restrictions.  Technology and nerves may have been impacted as Uranus has an electrifying quality that can fry circuits of both the organic and inorganic kind, especially for those of us with a strong kinesthetic sense and those of us with Sun, Moon, Ascendant, or personal planets in the third decanate of cardinal signs.  We may have received unexpected news or experienced disruptions to our usual routines, but also may have experienced breakthroughs resulting from the connection of our unconscious with Uranus’ intuitive genius.

That intuitive boost could have been carried forward into the afternoon as a result of the Moon’s next interaction, a conjunction with Mercury retrograde in Aries that put our thoughts and emotions on the same motivated page, working in unison toward our goals.  That said, having our thoughts subject to our moods may have impacted our decision-making ability, and we may have found ourselves highly distracted, with our thoughts and feelings changing rapidly, especially given the Aries tendency to chase everything new and shiny.  Still, we were much more likely to be vocal about our feelings during this time, so it could have been a good opportunity to give voice to our emotions that we might be hard-pressed to express otherwise.

Later this afternoon the Moon in Aries trined Saturn retrograde in Sagittarius, bringing a bit more seriousness and discipline to our mood, allowing us to focus on practical matters and push through adversity to get things done.  After the expressiveness of the Moon conjuncting Mercury, the trine to Saturn may have brought on an abrupt about-face in terms of our willingness to share our emotions with others, not out of a desire to hide them per se, but rather out of a heightened sense of self-sufficiency.  Whatever eccentric or experimental tendencies we experienced under the earlier Moon/Uranus conjunction, this afternoon and early evening we are more inclined to stick to methods that are tried and true, and take a more conservative approach overall.  This is especially true since this aspect starts a void-of-course period that encourages us to stick to routine for several hours, unconsciously processing the lessons of the past few days’ lunar transit through Aries, and avoiding any new enterprises as we wrap up old business and tend to things that need fixing or refining.

Tonight the Moon enters Taurus, settling down a bit from the energetic fervor of Aries and taking on a more practical and comfortable tone.  Taurus is the fixed earth sign most concerned with how things get done on the material plane, desirous of fiscal and physical security and willing to go the distance to secure home and its comforts, but also recognizing the need for rest, relaxation, and enjoyment of the good life when the day is done.  Tonight we are likely to want to enjoy our creature comforts and sensory pleasures, as Venus rules Taurus after all, and Venus is currently transiting dreamy and sensual Pisces.  Our enjoyment of the arts is increased by this transit, and chances are that we won’t adhere to our diets as strictly, nor be in much of a hurry about whatever we want to do – Taurus likes to take its time and enjoy life, even when hard at work.

Late tonight the Moon in Taurus trines the North Node in Virgo, emphasizing our path toward growth and personal achievement in a gentle and supportive way, so that we instinctually focus on our souls’ desires and what we need to do to achieve them.  There is a pleasing sense of fatedness about this aspect, a sense of all being right with the world and our slow but steady progress in it, that sets the stage for tomorrow morning’s New Moon in Taurus, and the intentions we set for ourselves with it.  Since this aspect will still be loosely in orb at the time of the New Moon, and it’s the only lunar aspect that the Moon will make for the first half of the day, it will be a quietly supportive New Moon with a focus on the Taurean virtues of steady persistence, care of the body, and rest, so tonight is a perfect night to do just that – rest and relax, dreaming kindly intentions for our bodies and our practical needs for this upcoming lunar cycle.

Astrology Update, April 24th, 2017: Lasting Consequences

 

Today has been dominated by this morning’s trine from Mercury in Aries to Saturn retrograde in Sagittarius, heightening the discipline of our minds and lending seriousness to our thoughts and communication.  This aspect will continue to lend us mental fortitude for the next couple of days, so now is a good time for financial planning, communications regarding legal matters, studying and any mental activity requiring concentration, as well as any careful and detailed work.  Now we are able to see both the forest and the trees, so this is a great time for writers and editors, especially in technical fields, although those working in a more creative capacity may find that side of their writing limited during this time, as we are thinking more conservatively under this aspect.  Mentor relationships are favored now as well, as we are more open to hearing advice from those who are more experienced than us, but otherwise we are likely to be less sociable than usual, more interested in practical dynamics and more likely to get straight to business than wasting time with social niceties.  Our persistence and problem-solving skills are both enhanced by this aspect, and the combination means that we will stick with even the most difficult tasks until they are done.

This aspect was followed this morning by a trine from the Moon in Aries to Black Moon Lilith in Sagittarius, aligning our key sources of unconscious wisdom to lend some receptive and immersive support to whatever serious pursuits the Mercury/Saturn trine had us paying attention to during the first half of the day.  We may have found both our independence and our focus especially heightened during this time, and most likely were unusually sure of what we wanted and just how we were going to achieve it.  Chances are that this kept us going full steam for much of the morning and possibly into the afternoon as well.

Tonight the Moon in Aries opposes Jupiter retrograde in Libra, amplifying our feelings of independence.  Though we are likely to feel good under this influence, and maybe even a bit boisterous despite the seriousness of the Mercury/Saturn trine, still the opposition between our feelings in a self-directed sign and our faith and beliefs in a sign concerned with relationships can heighten awareness of where we feel restricted by the demands of others.  We are likely to be generous with our time and energy if left to our own devices and truly interested in giving of ourselves to someone else, but we are likely to resist attempts to manipulate or coerce us into actions desired by others, and even if the Mercury/Saturn trine leads us to yield to persuasion out of a sense of responsibility, such action is likely to result in resentment and even anger that will not die down easily.  Now is a time when we are far more likely to question demands made on us in relationships and social situations, and we are more inclined to examine our beliefs surrounding such interactions under this influence.  Even if we are more likely to think about these matters in a disciplined and rational fashion due to the Mercury/Saturn influence, we are not likely to accept social structures blindly now, and the deep thought of the Mercury/Saturn trine combined with the heightened emotion of the Moon/Jupiter opposition makes it likely that whatever conclusions we come to tonight will have lasting consequences.
