Astrology Update, March 31st, 2017: Curious Gardens

Today started with the Moon void-of-course in Taurus for many hours, so this was not a morning for rushing out of the gate or embarking on any bold new initiatives.  Not that such a course was likely with the Moon in slow and steady Taurus – chances are that we were more inclined to roll over and stay in bed for a while longer than usual.  Since the early morning hours also saw the Moon sextiling Chiron in Pisces, we may have found ourselves in a more dreamy state anyway, nursing old wounds and finding ways to comfort ourselves and work through our sensitivities without a whole lot of physical movement.  Chances are that more than a few of us hit the snooze button a couple extra times in the process.

Late this morning the Moon entered Gemini, turning our patient and practical Taurean instincts into something much more quick-moving and much less patient.  Curious, inventive Gemini sets our instincts and emotions on a faster track, eager to see and do and explore and learn, skimming the surfaces of all of the shiny things like a dragonfly.  This is a mental sign, ruled by Mercury, so we’re not so interested in being emotive; though we are much more likely to talk about our emotions with the Moon in this placement, chances are that we do so from the standpoint of theory rather than practice.  This is not a time for expecting ourselves to feel deeply or have long heartfelt talks, but rather a time for flirting, testing, tasting, seeing what gets us where.  This is a time for quick assessment of things we might like to revisit later.  It’s a time for networking, communicating, and experimenting, and those of us working in sales, media, entertainment, or in scientific fields are likely to benefit.

Toward mid-day Mercury entered Taurus, so the even as our emotions and instincts are speeding up with Gemini, the ruler of that sign is slowing down and becoming more earthy, grounded, and practical.  This makes for an interesting balancing effect, keeping the Moon and our emotions from getting dosed with too much flightiness as our thoughts are steadying themselves after all of the action-orientation that Mercury had in Aries.  The ideas that we wanted to go racing after in Aries now have the perseverance of Taurus to keep them going, and the practical capacity for manifestation in the real world.  Our thoughts and communication now are oriented toward what is real, what we can see and touch.  Because Taurus is ruled by Venus, we are also likely to be most concerned with what we value, as well as what and whom we have affection for and take pleasure in.  While our emotions are becoming more light-hearted and desiring fun, our thoughts are becoming more serious, though also more inclined toward hedonism.  Taurus is deeply concerned with material pleasures and comforts, so chances are that we will be thinking and communicating more about what will gain us those pleasures and comforts, but then we will want to get a chance to enjoy them, especially with the Moon in Gemini egging us on to try things out!  This is not a time for self-denial, unless it’s in the name of something we want far more than some temporary pleasure, or that pleasure requires too much movement and effort to get to it.  Though our emotions are highly changeable under Gemini, our thoughts under Taurus are not, and we may get into some mental ruts during this time.  However, we are also likely to have a highly developed aesthetic sense now, appreciating art and beauty more during this time.

In keeping with the connection between the Moon in Gemini and Mercury in Taurus, soon after Mercury entered Taurus the Moon in Gemini sextiled Taurus’ ruler Venus retrograde in Aries, and the fire of our affections got refueled by the airy fun of Gemini.  Venus retrograde may be reconsidering how we connect with others now, but with the support of communicative and responsive Gemini we may have seen some flirtatious back-and-forth early this afternoon, particularly via text or Snapchat, since Gemini favors communication via technology, especially in the pursuit of romance.  Venus’ warmth has coloured our emotions this afternoon as well, giving a more kindly and pleasurable feeling to our day.

This afternoon the Moon in Gemini squares the North Node in Virgo, challenging the process of our souls’ perfection through our chatty and curious instincts.  Both Gemini and Virgo are mutable signs, flexible and adaptable, and both are ruled by Mercury, so on an intellectual level at least these two get along.  But Gemini is an air sign, with ideas that move and change and are dropped just as easily as they are picked up, whereas Virgo is earthy, practical, concerned with the details that lead to growth, and far more patient than Gemini, but also far more critical.  Gemini operates more in the realm of fantastic possibility, whereas Virgo operates more in the realm of realistic probability.  On the plus side, the North Node tends to respond better to challenges than planets and luminaries do, as challenges promote growth and the North Node is all about growth, especially in Virgo.  This afternoon and evening then are a time for learning how to navigate this space between possibility and probability, fun exploration and instructive process, in pursuit of our souls’ path and our purpose in this life.

Astrology Update, March 6th, 2017: A Unifying Vision

The day started in the very wee hours with the Moon in Gemini sextiling Mars in Aries signaling the beginning of a void-of-course period lasting a few hours.  Since those of us in the Western Hemisphere who don’t work night shift were most likely asleep at this time, the most we were likely to get out of this supportive aspect were interesting dreams, the kind that are exploratory and tickle our curiosity in a Gemini fashion, or perhaps more driven and active in keeping with Mars’ placement in Aries.  Those of us who were awake at that time may have gotten a decent boost to our productivity so long as we stuck to our routines, though we could just as well have been insomniac writers or stayed up too late embroiled in Internet conversation (yep, that last was me).

A few hours later the Moon entered Cancer, the sign that it rules, heightening our emotional sensitivity, moodiness, and protectiveness, and putting our instincts firmly in the realm of caring for those we consider our own – friends, family, loved ones, even close business associates (despite being known as a sign of domesticity, Cancer can have remarkably good business acumen).  While the Moon is in Cancer it is a great time to strengthen our connections, tend to home repairs and spring cleaning, cooking and domestic projects, or the kinds of business interactions that require sensitivity and intuition.  Those of us in sales and service occupations could do well during this time, so long as we are operating out of a sense of genuine concern for helping our clients.  Since Cancer is a watery sign, our moods are especially prone to fluctuation now, and we want a mutually beneficial exchange in our interactions – we are more likely to fuss over those we care about and be attentive to their needs, but want the same kind of attention in return, and if that is not forthcoming we are likely to feel more hurt than usual by the discrepancy.

Toward mid-day the Moon in Cancer sextiled the North Node in Virgo, emphasizing the healing quality of both signs and giving us some extra impetus toward self-care, as well as helping us to understand how caring for others fits into our karmic path.  We may have experienced new insights regarding our health, home, family, or business, or gotten some extra support along the way from someone close to us, priming us to make good use of the boost in consciousness coming this afternoon.

The big astrological news of the day is the conjunction of the Sun and Mercury in Pisces.  Mercury is in a challenging place in Pisces, opposite Virgo, one of the two signs that it rules, and subject to Piscean tendency to blur boundaries that can hamper analytical thought.  Since Mercury rules two mutable signs and is known for speed, the changeability of Pisces is something that Mercury can work with, and Mercury in Pisces can have an uncanny ability to quickly pick up on the thoughts and intentions of others, thanks to the combination of speed and dissolution of boundaries, but those qualities can also lead to confusion, since it can be difficult for Mercury in Pisces to be certain what thoughts and intentions are truly one’s own.  Under a Piscean Mercury’s influence we can find our compassion and sympathy heightened and blending with the desires of others that we have mistaken for our own, and it can be very easy to get caught up in others’ needs, especially under an empathetic Cancerian Moon.  The Sun conjuncting Mercury now heightens the Piscean influence, but also lends brilliance and awareness to Mercury, making it easier for us to utilize the best of Mercury’s capabilities at this time.  We can communicate with greater kindness and sensitivity, intuitively grasp information and gain a full sense of the big picture that may have previously eluded us.  We are more likely to gain insights that can help others around us and help ourselves to take great steps forward in our own spiritual and psychological development.  We may gain a clearer understanding of our own patterns of self-sabotage and martyrdom, with a greater chance of releasing what we no longer need or want, in preparation for new beginnings this spring.  This is a great time for creative endeavors, as well as breakthroughs in medicine and compassionate service in healing professions.  Now is a time of heightened awareness of our interconnectedness as a species and as an entire planet.  And because Mercury conjuncting the Sun can lead us to identify with our ideas, this is a time to be aware that while we may not literally be our ideas, our ideas now can reshape who we are for years to come.  Pisces represents the end of the zodiac, and the end of a cycle, a time to make our peace with who we are and what we have done, and cast off outmoded ideas that have held us back for too long.  Now is the time to bring our most compassionate natures and ideas into the light, like seeds sending new shoots breaking through the dark earth and unfurling into the coming spring.

Astrology Update, March 5th, 2017: Possibility and Reality

We are still feeling the effects of Venus stationing retrograde yesterday and will start to feel the effects of tomorrow’s Sun/Mercury conjunction as the day progresses.  Though Mercury in Pisces is not known for mental acuity and can be easily confused on the level of strictly analytical thought, still it is highly intuitive and capable of reading people well enough to pluck others’ thoughts seemingly out of mid-air, and tomorrow’s Sun/Mercury conjunction may make us highly conscious of our intuitive capabilities in both thought and communication.  Since Mercury is the ruler of Gemini, the sign that the Moon is transiting throughout today, our emotional and instinctive reactions may take some of this intuitive flavor, though the emphasis will still be on the classically Gemini qualities of curiosity, mental flexibility, communication, and speed.

In true Gemini fashion the Moon started the day off quickly enough with a sextile to Venus in Aries shortly after the witching hour and then a square to Mercury less than an hour later.  That Moon/Venus sextile was likely to inspire some emotional impulsiveness, especially in terms of our interactions with others, and may have inspired more than a few of us to stay up later than usual as a result of Gemini curiosity fueling the Aries desire for action.  However, the square with Mercury may have reinforced the more difficult qualities of Mercury in Pisces – the brain fog and confusion resulting from Piscean blurring of boundaries within our thoughts and communication, made all the more potent by the residual effects of yesterday’s Mercury/Neptune conjunction.  It’s just as well that this was happening during the wee hours of the morning for those of us in the continental United States.  For those of us working night shift, this could well have made for problems with concentration and communication and even fine motor skills.

Closer to dawn, the Moon in Gemini squared the Sun in Pisces, creating a challenge from our unconscious to our conscious selves.  The First Quarter Moon is a time of crisis in the build-up of energies connected to the intentions that we set at the New Moon/Eclipse, energies that will continue to build up to their release point at the Full Moon.  This First Quarter Moon sees our emotions and instincts in the mental sign of Gemini and our core consciousness in the emotional and intuitive sign of Pisces, which may have us feeling as though things are flipped on their heads and may result in us questioning what is real.  On the plus side, Gemini is great at synthesizing information and Pisces is great at integrating opposites and working within paradoxes, so these two signs are well-equipped to process conflicting data, but we still may find ourselves swimming in a bit of information overload during this time, information that requires a unified effort on both the conscious and unconscious levels to make use of.

The big astrological news of the day is this afternoon’s trine from Mars in Aries to Saturn in Sagittarius, creating a powerfully supportive connective between our drive and our discipline.  Mars in Aries is already potent, being in one of the signs that he rules, but adding Saturn’s patience and steadying influence now helps us to keep from raging forward impatiently and instead applies our focus with Saturnine direction, recognizing the perils and pitfalls that we must avoid, especially on the ideological front, and using our challenges and restrictions as a necessary part of the refining process to make the actions that we take now more likely to yield the results that we desire.  This afternoon is a time to make use of our energy and ambition, knowing that we have a greater capacity to do so with wisdom and integrity, aligning the needs of the self (Aries) with the needs of the bigger picture (Sagittarius).  Physical activity is favored now, as well as tackling the tough jobs we previously were reluctant to face.  Mars in connection with Saturn gives us the courage to face our fears, while Saturn keeps that courage from turning into foolhardiness.  This is a great time to break through procrastination, as we have the confidence now to work through our insecurities, calmly and steadily but also with just the right touch of excitement.  This is the intersection of possibility and reality, so it’s time to take advantage of it and use it to take those bold and necessary steps into the future that we’ve held back on for far too long.

To add to this boost in our personal power is a trine from the Moon in Gemini to Jupiter in Libra a little later in the afternoon, increasing our inventiveness and curiosity as well as our instinctive responsiveness to others.  This helps us to take those Mars/Saturn-driven actions in ways that don’t run counter to our purposes in social realms, instead facilitating our communication skills and our optimism in supportive and exciting ways.  We may find ourselves flying high on a sense of hope and fun during this time, but since we are being constructively grounded by that Mars/Saturn trine, we can enjoy our mood this afternoon while still making good progress on the things that matter to us and not floating too far into the ether.  The trine from the Moon in Gemini to Jupiter in Libra particularly enhances our good fortune in groups, especially when utilizing our communicative and technological skills and keeping a sense of lightheartedness.

The mood of inventiveness and stimulation continues this afternoon and into early evening with the Moon in Gemini sextiling Uranus in Aries, and since the Moon is making contact with both Jupiter and Uranus in short order it does activate the recent Jupiter/Uranus opposition that is still in orb to have lingering effects on our lives in connection with our individual identities and our relationships.  The Moon sextiling Uranus now adds to the unpredictability and inventiveness of this afternoon’s mix, encouraging us to think outside of the box and utilizing new strategies and technologies to achieve our aims.  Uranus is a revolutionary, so our instinct now is to break free from constricting patterns and cast an eye toward the future while being mindful of what we truly want for ourselves, not just what society tries to convince us we want.

As the evening progresses, our moods may take a more somber turn as the Moon in Gemini squares Chiron in Pisces, dredging up old hurtful patterns in both our own lives and the lives of those close to us.  We may find our earlier chattiness has inadvertently stepped on some toes, or our attempts to break new ground for ourselves have conjured up ghosts from our pasts that must be laid to rest before we can make real progress, and since our instincts are still set to Gemini’s fun-loving and somewhat flippant mode, we may experience some confusion as to what is actually going on and why the fun seems to have turned sour.

The moodiness brought on by this aspect is only exacerbated late tonight by the Moon in Gemini opposing Saturn in Sagittarius, turning our moods somber and even depressive.  All of the action of the day is still only a drop in the bucket of what needs to be done to get our world back on course, and that sobering sense of reality is Saturn’s stock-in-trade, deflating the Gemini giddiness that had us whirling through much of the day.  Our pace becomes slower now, whether or not we want it to.  Gemini tends to be an insomniac and Saturn tends to remind us of our limitations, so I expect that more than a few of us will encounter sleeping challenges tonight, whether of the variety that keeps us up tossing and turning or the type that knocks us out much earlier than anticipated, with still so much left in need of doing.  Since we will still be feeling some residual effects of the Mars/Saturn trine into tomorrow, however, navigating tonight’s Moon/Saturn opposition is really a matter of awareness of what is necessary to keep our engines running, and the recognition that tomorrow is another day, with new possibilities to build into realities.

Astrology of February 6th, 2017: Luck and Limitations

In the early morning hours today the Moon in Gemini trined the Sun in Aquarius, creating a state of flow and harmony between our unconscious and conscious awareness to start the day, increasing our desire for knowledge and our interest in the world around us, as well as heightening our social awareness.  A few hours later the Moon in Gemini sextiled Uranus in Aries, likely adding to the quick pace of the morning for those of us on diurnal schedules.  Since this was a harmonious aspect, it’s not likely to have rushed beyond our capabilities to enjoyable handle, and definitely gave those who could take advantage of the increased emphasis on self-direction an opportunity to shine.  

The Moon in Gemini squared Chiron in Pisces toward mid-day, which may have ended up making some of us feel a bit abraded and frustrated or hurt, typically as a result of communication missteps resulting from failed attempts at connection, and those of us with ongoing health problems could have found ourselves on the wrong end of the Moon in Gemini’s frenetic pace, feeling burnt out and exhausted, and unable to keep up.

This is followed by the Moon in Gemini trine Jupiter in Libra, giving our emotions an expansive, social tone, so for those of us who managed to successfully navigate through that patch of burn out, this aspect likely has helped us to carry forward the active tone of the morning.  Even for those to whom the Moon/Chiron square proved to be more of a stumbling block, the Moon/Jupiter trine is likely to have been a blessing in getting us back on the horse for the afternoon, helping us to understand instinctively how our thoughts and communication enhance or detract from our good fortune in life, and giving us an opportunity to magnify our own optimism and with it our statistical probability of having a better life.  People who are “lucky” typically don’t have more good experiences than others – they just have more experiences, period.  They get out and try more, are more curious and interested in life (qualities that Gemini exercises in spades), and Jupiter today was happy to help encourage us in that direction.

This was followed by Mercury in Capricorn sextiling Black Moon Lilith in Scorpio in the early afternoon, helping us to extend our communication to normally hidden or taboo subjects without incurring negative consequences to our goals and reputations in the process, and potentially even enhancing them.  This made this afternoon a great time for ferreting out secrets that could be useful to us, though given the continuing proximity of Pluto in Capricorn it would be best if the use we make of this knowledge benefits more people than just ourselves.

The Moon in Gemini opposing Saturn in Sagittarius this afternoon may put a damper on things, increasing our feelings of limitation and insecurity, giving heightened prominence to the obstacles in our way, particularly when it comes to communication, learning, and social interactions.  Of course, we may also take these things more seriously and apply more discipline in these areas, and if we do, we will become aware of the need to balance our desire to learn and communicate with the need to pace ourselves and exercise caution in what we do with the information we obtain.  Since this aspect begins a lunar void-of-course period, it makes sense to fall back on our routines this afternoon and evening, and not begin any bold new ventures at this time.  This can also be a good time to have a few friends over, especially the kind who don’t mind a little seriousness and can help us ease our frustrations with some good camaraderie.

Later tonight the Moon enters watery Cancer, encouraging us to cozy up at home with family and friends, and give ourselves the time and space that we need to process our changing moods.  The Moon rules Cancer, so our emotions, instincts, and unconscious awareness are in their place of power tonight.  This is a good night for dreaming, so those of us who like to work with dream knowledge should be sure to keep something by our beds to write down what we remember in the morning.  This lunar placement makes house and home priorities tonight and over the next couple of days, and hones our business sense and intuitions, so being conscious of questions relating to these areas before going to bed tonight is likely to yield new insights.

Astrology of February 5th, 2017: Growth and Introspection

Today Jupiter stations retrograde, with the upcoming retrograde period lasting until June 9th and with the shadow lasting until September 9th, so the whole day today feels the pull as the 2nd largest gravitational force in our solar system appears to halt in the sky, in preparation to seemingly move backward in relation to the Earth, retracing his steps of the past few months through the Zodiac.  Now is the time to reconsider the meaning of good fortune in our lives, how we achieve it and how we hold ourselves back from it.  Do we have faith in our ability to attain what we desire?  If not, why not?  Now is the time to start assessing these things, particularly in relation to whatever areas we have been working on most in hope of growth.  Keep in mind that Jupiter governs spiritual matters, so this is a time to go within in search of our answers, not into the outer world.  This introspection is necessary to prepare us for the rewards that we may reap when Jupiter turns direct, for we cannot have our harvest come in without creating the necessary space to receive it.

The day starts off with the Moon in Gemini squaring the North Node in Virgo in the early morning hours, adding to the emphasis of personal growth in service of our soul’s path.  While the square aspect is a challenge, when it is the Nodal axis that is so challenged we have the opportunity to burn through old karma that holds us back and if we integrate the energies of the square well we can make great leaps forward in achieving our soul’s purpose in this life.  With this particular square, the challenge is between what we communicate and what attention we give to the process of growth, our ability to skim through vast quantities of information in search of what we need versus our ability to focus on the tiniest details in the hopes of perfecting our process.  Remember that both Gemini and Virgo are ruled by Mercury, currently traveling through deep-thinking Capricorn.  We are likely to feel the need to balance the big picture with the microcosm today, and while it may be a rough journey chances are that it’s a worthwhile one.

Shortly thereafter, the Moon in Gemini sextiles Mars in Aries, and Mars helps fuel our communication and knowledge assimilation with a burst of assertive Aries energy.  We may find ourselves unusually active for a Sunday morning, but this being the most supportive aspect of the day, we would do well to take advantage of this energy to learn as much as we can and get things done before this afternoon when the Moon in Gemini squares Neptune in Pisces, leading us to want to escape reality for a while.  If all that does is lead to some pleasant daydreaming or binge-watching Netflix, well and good, but this being a square aspect, our feelings are likely to be more challenging, leading us to instinctively seek out some means of actively retreating into fantasy that may well result in drinking or other addictive behaviors.  We may also find our heads fogged up just when we thought we were hitting our stride with the impetus from the Moon/Mars sextile, though we could just as well have tuckered ourselves out by overdoing it during that period, and some downtime to rest and soothe our over-active imaginations may be seriously needed by nightfall.  There is a very real possibility of delusion or deception here, so we need to be mindful and chose whom we believe during this time with care (including ourselves).

Of course, since Jupiter and Neptune are the classical and transcendental rulers of Pisces, respectively, there is a double emphasis here on spiritual matters, and with Jupiter still stationing and then turning retrograde late tonight, chances are that we are going to need some means to slow the pace of the frenetic Gemini Moon stimulating our unconscious and retreat to our dream worlds earlier in the night than usual.  Speaking of dreaming, this is the night for it, so those of us wishing to get a jump on sussing out the next step in our growth during this Jupiter Retrograde period would do well to meditate on our questions before retiring and be sure to write down our dreams in the morning.  Our unconscious minds will be more likely to find answers for us in sleep tonight than during the waking day preceding.
