Astrology Update, April 18th, 2017: Mood Swings

In the early morning hours today the Moon in Capricorn squared Jupiter in Libra, amping up our emotions and putting our driven instinctive responses at odds with our more optimistic social tendencies.  For most of us in the Western Hemisphere, this aspect was in play while we were sleeping, but for the very early risers or those very late to bed, we may have felt that our faith and perseverance were challenged, and our relationships may have been tested in the process.  That said, Jupiter is still a very benevolent influence so our feelings overall during this time were likely to be good, but it is also likely that we were less inclined to see the nitty gritty details in our lives at this time, preferring to take a grander approach, and as a result we may have tended toward a bit of off-putting arrogance or devaluing of details that mattered to others, convinced that we had the one true philosophy of life and subtly (or not-so-subtly) communicating that in our attitude.

A few hours later Mercury in Taurus trined the North Node in Virgo, putting our minds at least back on a more detail-oriented track.  Mercury is currently retrograde, putting it between the Earth and the Sun, and Mercury’s influence was also extended at this time through its rulership of Virgo, so matters of thought, communication, travel, and technology were emphasized on this day, particularly in relation to manifesting our soul’s purpose in the material world.  Health matters were also emphasized, and it is possible that we could achieve real progress in regard to a health-related issue as a result of insights and communication on this day.

Shortly thereafter the Moon in Capricorn conjuncted Pluto, intensifying our emotions and bringing hidden things to light, including obsessions and compulsions.  During this time our real feelings were more likely to come to the surface, even those we thought deeply buried.  This was a time to watch out for power games, especially in our close relationships, and to recognize that where we may have felt out-of-control was likely to be indicative of deeper concerns to be explored on a more long-term basis once the transit has passed and we do not feel so overwhelmed.

The skies quieted down for the afternoon, until the Moon in Capricorn squared Uranus in Aries during the evening, increasing the likelihood of sudden upsets and changes, as the Moon’s unconscious cycles connected with and potentially exacerbated erratic Uranian energy.  We may have found ourselves unexpectedly more awake and restless at night, even hyperactive.  We are also likely to feel more impatient and contrary, inclined to disagree with people more out of a sense of contrariness than actual disagreement.  Technological troubles were a distinct possibility at this time.

A few hours later the Moon in Capricorn sextiled Chiron in Pisces easing up on some of the more distressing feelings of the previous two aspects and giving us a chance to assess some of our more difficult feelings with sympathy and compassion.  This would have been a good time to talk with a friend about our troubles, whether just sharing our own feelings or commiserating over mutual difficulties, as discussion of our pain at this time can be especially useful in yielding insight from others who have experienced similar situations.

Late that night the Moon in Capricorn sextiled Venus in Pisces, bringing Venus’ gentle connective power to support our emotions, and further emphasizing the enjoyment we may gain from being with friends and people we love.  Entertaining at home was especially favored by this aspect, and relationships in general got a loving and supportive boost at this time.

Astrology Update, April 16th, 2017: Connecting Wisdom and Growth

Today the Moon in Sagittarius got things started with this morning’s trine to Uranus in Aries, setting a speedy tone for the day with the Moon’s unconscious urge toward action and liveliness joining forces with Uranus’ will to sudden change and impulsiveness.  Since this was a harmonious aspect, this boost in activity was likely to be benevolent whether we rode along with it or simply observed the action from the sidelines, but it wasn’t likely to make for a boring time either way.

Shortly afterward, Mars in Taurus sextiled Chiron in Pisces, lending a practical energy to our learning and our understanding of our own weaknesses and limitations while bringing compassion and wisdom to our actions.  Today we are likely to have had more sympathy for illness and more active interest in matters of health.  We are also likely to be more persistent about getting to the roots of health problems or resolving paradoxes, and alternative health fields of study are favored at this time.

Later this morning the Moon in Sagittarius squares Chiron in Pisces, challenging this exploration of our patterns of health and injury with emotional and instinctive reactions that would rather have fun and not examine such potentially depressing patterns too closely.  We may have found ourselves feeling impatient with our own limitations or those of others this morning, or may have found that the truth of our situation when it comes to our health and our psychological sensitivities bumps up against deeply ingrained beliefs, particularly those shared with families and other groups.  We may have felt highly attuned to the tensions at the intersection of what we feel in relation to our health and the patterns of belief shared with others, and may have found those tensions coming to a head today.

A short while later the Moon in Sagittarius trined the Sun in Aries, renewing some of the lively energy from the early morning and putting our conscious and unconscious selves in harmony.  Our instinctive reactions worked along our conscious intentions today, making it easier for us to do what we truly wanted, and helping us to disseminate the intentions that we set at the New Moon and brought to their peak at the Full Moon.  Since both Luminaries are operating in fiery signs, this was definitely a time best devoted to action and creative, spirited endeavors.

However, a few minutes later the Moon in Sagittarius squared Venus in Pisces, and our emotions and instincts bumped up against our desire for connection and pleasure.  We may have wanted to take action but found ourselves enmeshed in lazier desires, feeling simultaneously energetic yet also slow and sensual.  We may have sensed a need to take connections slowly, yet found our instinctive responses to be too rushed, our timing off.  

Around mid-day, the Moon conjuncted Saturn retrograde in Sagittarius, and our mood may have turned more somber as a result, though not unbearably so.  Rather, we were likely to have seen where we needed to respect our limitations and those of others, and may have found ourselves more willing to shoulder responsibilities even in the midst of fun.  We may have also found ourselves more emotionally invested in our beliefs, particularly those that define us as part of a group, and were more likely to assert our emotional and philosophical boundaries at this time.

This aspect started a lunar void-of-course period lasting for a few hours, during which we were best off falling back on routine and allowing our unconscious to float in a state of receptivity, quietly processing the lessons of the Moon’s transit through Sagittarius before the Moon entered Capricorn early this evening, and since Saturn is Capricorn’s ruler, the Moon/Saturn conjunction that began this void-of-course aptly paved the way for us to react and feel with more seriousness and determination.

During this void-of-course period, Venus in Pisces conjuncts Chiron in Pisces, putting our affections in touch with our deepest hurts and those of others.  Since Venus is slower moving than the Moon, this influence sticks with us for a while, lingering into tomorrow.  This has us moving forward with the knowledge gained from Venus’ retrograde period of introspection, connecting with others through shared sympathy and compassion for each others’ hurts.  The wisdom that we have gained through painful learning experiences may seem like it can’t much help us, but it can be a great solace and aid to others now enduring similar situations.  The sharing of such wisdom then becomes a source of deeper connections between us.  Since Pisces is eldest sign, we may be again confronted by what we need to let go of in order to have the caring and wise connections that we most desire.  These connections can take on spiritual overtones, and during this transit we are more likely to see how they can have long-term impact on our lives and the lives of others around us.

The Moon’s entry into Capricorn tonight takes the seriousness of Saturn in Sagittarius and applies it to our most important goals, from the unconscious point of view.  If what we want consciously differs greatly from what we want consciously, that can pose some problems, but the Moon/Sun trine earlier today brought our conscious and unconscious desires into alignment, so chances are that what we get emotionally serious about during this transit will resonate on both conscious and unconscious levels.  Capricorn embodies determination, so we may find ourselves becoming more focused in our reactions during the next couple of days, less easily deterred from what we want.  We are likely to assert more persistence now, particularly in relation to our long-term goals, especially those focused on career and reputation, but really during this transit what matters most is what our hearts align with – nothing else will muster the same fervent devotion, and that heart alignment isn’t likely to be a matter of gushy love and flowers but rather what speaks deeply to our core being and our ancestral pride.  Capricorn is deeply traditional and the Moon is instinctual, so our emotions and reactions during this time will come straight from our roots.

More of that old soul feeling came tonight through the sextile of Venus in Pisces to Mars in Taurus, which is also in effect through tomorrow, and brings along with it a kindly and comfortable feeling that enhances sensual and sexual connections, and helps to keep our energy levels at a steady, even flow.  During this aspect our sympathies have more fortitude, our actions more kindness, and our appreciation of and desire for creature comforts, preferably shared with those who touch us on a spiritual level as well as practical and physical levels. We are likely to be a bit gentler with each other during this transit, yet not pushovers, as our compassion is balanced by our practicality.

A short while later tonight the Moon in Capricorn trines the North Node in Virgo, bringing more of that practicality into play but now applying it to what our souls most need.  Our ability to work with and resolve our karmic lessons gained the attentiveness and persistence of Capricorn, who is ruled by Saturn, the Lord of Karma, and the self-discipline associated with him has now come through on an instinctive level, our feelings attuned to whatever will most serve our souls’ needs tonight.  Shortly thereafter the Moon in Capricorn trines Mercury in Taurus, forming a Grand Earth Trine that pulls in our steady and practical mental capabilities into the circuit created with the North Node.  Our minds and emotions are put in harmony by the aspect, and working united with our souls’ learning process due to the configuration with the North Node, tapping into cardinal, fixed, and mutable earth energies simultaneously, and channeling the power of all three into what most needs doing in our lives.  This is a time when we can make incredible progress in our souls’ growth, putting the formidable power of our most practical thoughts and instincts to bear on working through our karma and living up to our souls’ purpose in this lifetime and those yet to come.

Astrology Update, April 13th, 2017: Changing Perspective

This morning the Moon in Scorpio sextiled Pluto in Capricorn, giving support from the transcendental ruler of Scorpio to our instincts and emotions traversing the deep oceanic realms of Pluto’s home sign.  Pluto’s transit through Capricorn emphasizes pragmatism and determination, and in aspect to the Moon in Scorpio gave power and fortitude to our feelings this morning.  We may have felt better equipped to navigate the realms of the powers-that-be at this time, less at odds with the forces that we cannot see and more able to hold our own when dealing with institutions during this transit.

The skies have been quiet for the rest of the morning and the afternoon, but now we get a flurry of lunar activity tonight.  First, the Moon in Scorpio opposes Mars in Taurus, pitting the classical ruler of Scorpio against his home sign.  We may find ourselves feeling emotionally stuck, or find that our physical energy doesn’t match our emotions or our instinctual reactions.  Some of us may find our energy amped up by this aspect, while others will feel drained.  Tensions may be increased by this aspect and tempers may flare, but since these are both fixed signs conflicts are more likely to center on issues of stubbornness, and are not likely to erupt quickly – if there is enough tension to cause an open quarrel, chances are that it’s been building for a while, and tonight is just a symptom rather than a cause.

A few hours later the Moon in Scorpio trines Chiron in Pisces, and we are able to more easily ferret out the causes of our sensitivities, the sources of old wounds.  We have the emotional courage now to face our weaknesses and patterns of trauma, and gain both deep understanding of our own wounds and compassion for the injuries of others in the process.  Chiron in Pisces has the wisdom of an old soul, able to discern the larger cycles of what we feel in the depths of the Scorpionic oceans, while also possessing a certain stoicism about our pain.  The Moon in Scorpio is not normally particularly eager to talk about matters of personal weakness, but this alignment can help put our perspective into the Scorpionic realms of psychology and occultism while maintaining the healing, sympathetic instruction of Chiron, and get us to open up about the hurts we have in common where we otherwise might not.

An hour later the Moon in Scorpio trines Venus retrograde in Pisces.  This creates a beautiful flowing state between our feelings and our affections, our instincts and our pleasures, combining the focus of Scorpio and the gentleness of Pisces, and reinforcing the spiritual leanings of both.  We may feel more compassionate and sympathetic at this time, more kindly and affectionate, but with the strength of Scorpio keeping us from turning into complete pushovers.  This starts a lunar void-of-course period that lasts until early tomorrow morning, so this is a good time to float in the emotional waters and find some companionable pleasures that don’t stray too far out of our comfort zones to fall back on, staying away from any significant new projects as we allow our receptive unconscious to process the lessons of the Moon’s transit through Scorpio and get ready for the more active emotional state of the Moon in Sagittarius.

And in keeping with the fire of the upcoming Sagittarian Moon, the big astrological news of tonight is the Sun conjuncting Uranus in Aries, no doubt making it hard to stay quiet and receptive during the void-of-course period.  Uranus tends to be an agitating force, even in supportive aspects, and while the conjunction can sometimes be favorable it is still a hard aspect.  Frustrations stirred up during the Moon/Mars opposition earlier may come into play again as the night progresses, especially when they relate to areas where we feel trapped or stuck.  Tonight we are likely to be unusually headstrong, willful, and unwilling to compromise when it comes to our own freedom.  We may experience sudden changes tonight, including technological breakthroughs, and this aspect favors those of us working in experimental fields.  Keep in mind however, that we may just as easily experience sudden disruptions, technological changes or glitches that throw our lives into an uproar, whether temporarily or more long-term.  Though these may seem to come out of nowhere, those of us who have been stuck in some portion of our lives have probably had the disruptive urge building for a while, and are only becoming conscious of it now.  Tonight is a night for the kinds of surprises that impart intuitive knowledge, and can have a long-term impact if we allow ourselves to see how such changes fit into our lives and where such disruptions could be just what the doctor ordered.

Astrology Update, April 11th, 2017: Increasing Focus

This morning the Moon in Libra opposed Uranus in Aries, continuing the intense and erratic energies of last night’s Full Moon.  Uranus governs sudden change, rebellion, and technology, and when in hard aspect to the Moon its unconscious fluctuations can become even more unstable, so this morning may have seen technological issues as well as emotional agitation and flare-ups in tempers.  

Toward mid-day the Moon in Libra sextiled Saturn retrograde in Sagittarius, helping to stabilize our emotions and instincts and steering us back on a more practical track.  Saturn in aspect to the Moon tends to increase our seriousness, but since the sextile is a harmonious aspect this is likely to have been a helpful influence this morning, helping our social interactions with Saturn’s discipline and clear boundaries.  This aspect also started a lunar void-of-course period, encouraging us to settle into routine while processing the lessons of the Libra transit, and discouraging any bold new moves before the Moon’s entry into Scorpio early this evening.

The Moon’s entry into Scorpio sees our emotions and instincts transition from rational, fair, and socially harmonious to intense, focused, and secretive.  We simultaneously feel more deeply but are less interested in talking about what we feel.  This lunar transit encourages us to take an interest in hidden things and helps us to intuitively get to the heart of what others are feeling, helping those of us in human services and research-related professions.  This transit also throws control issues into focus – we may find ourselves behaving more compulsively during this transit, and our emotions can turn obsessive.  We become more persistent in our endeavors during this time, especially those in which we are emotionally invested, and we are not likely to be satisfied with half-measures.

Tonight the Moon in Scorpio sextiles the North Node in Virgo, bringing that persistence to bear on our pursuit of our souls’ purpose.  Our instinctive pursuit of hidden information is bolstered by the Virgoan North Node’s attention to details and concern with process and growth, and our progress in learning the new skills that move our souls forward is enhanced by our increased emotional focus and intensity.  This is a good night for learning what is needed to move us forward on our paths.

Astrology Update, April 6th, 2017: The Late, Late Update

 

For those of you wondering why I am so late in posting this, I have been in-transit across the United States all day today, and with Saturn’s retrograde transiting my third house of short trips and communication apparently that has resulted in a bundle of little traveling and communication setbacks – nothing major, in keeping with the short-distance nature of the 3rd house, but when taken together they have completely thrown off my timing for the day.  I’ve actually been experiencing some of this building up during the past week of Saturn’s retrograde shadow, but it didn’t impact my posting schedule as badly as it has today.  Still, it could have been far worse, and right now I’m just thankful to have arrived safely in Providence and hopefully getting back on track.

There have been no notable interplanetary aspects today (yesterday for the East Coast), but the Moon has certainly been busy, starting out the day very early in the wee hours with a sextile to Jupiter in Libra, so that those of us still up at that hour may well have been tempted to stay up even later being sociable or creatively expressive.  Since Jupiter is still retrograde, we may have had a few lessons to learn regarding our relationships and our beliefs, but since the sextile is a harmonious aspect, these were most likely to come in the form of experiences that expanded our perspective.  Those of us who are very early risers may have felt an extra boost of optimism to help set a good mood for the morning.

However, still in the early morning the Moon in Leo squared Mars in Taurus, increasing the potential for crankiness and frustration to cloud the morning instead.  The Moon in Leo can be joyful and regal, but if feeling ignored or thwarted can just as easily turn from benevolent ruler to tyrant, and Mars in Taurus tends to have blinders on to all that doesn’t fit into its very pragmatic focus.  Since these are both fixed signs, neither is interested in compromising to accommodate differing styles or viewpoints, and since the Moon is an unconscious force, the Leo side of this equation may well not even have realized if it was running roughshod over the less flamboyant Taurean personality.  However, Mars in Taurus is no pushover, so some backlash was likely the result, with the morning getting off to a rough start.

Toward mid-day the Moon in Leo trined Uranus in Aries, making things likely to move much more easily – potentially a little too easily if one prefers a slower pace, as Uranus tends to speed things up.  This aspect was good for getting us unstuck in terms of asserting our personal freedom, expressing our creative spirit, and being decisive.  The flow between these two made for some headstrong feelings, and some of us may have been a bit overbearing as a result, but the trine is the most supportive of aspects so it’s not likely that this created many hard feelings, as Aries tends not to linger on grudges, and a well-supported Leo is happy to be magnanimous.

This evening saw the Moon in Leo trining Saturn retrograde in Sagittarius, adding some seriousness to our feelings but nothing too depressing, as this influence combined Leonine pride with Saturnine responsibility, creating ease and flow between the two, and helping us to instinctively step into our self-discipline while still maintaining our creative spark.  Since this aspect started a lunar void-of-course period, this evening has been a time to settle into our routines and open ourselves to a more receptive mode of processing the lessons of this Leo Moon transit, and with the Saturn trine starting it that was an added bonus for processing the start of this retrograde period.  The void-of-course period is not a time for starting anything new, but it’s a great time for seeing what needs tweaking and correcting, which aligns well with the trio of retrogrades currently underway – Saturn, Jupiter, and Venus, and soon-to-be Mercury.

Speaking of Mercury, the Moon enters Virgo tonight, one of the two signs ruled by Mercury, and our instincts become more thoughtful and communicative as a result.  Virgo can tend to be a perfectionist, so we may be harder on ourselves and others during this time, but not out of spite, only out of a desire to get things “right.”  Virgo is deeply concerned with growth and process, as well as health since Virgo can tend to be an excessive worrier, leading to health problems as a result.  Thus, the Virgo Moon is sometimes called the “Medicine Chest Moon” and if we have been lax in tending to our health the detrimental results of such neglect may show themselves now.  We may also find ourselves being more critical and nit-picky now, but we are also likely to be genuinely interested in the well-being of others – we may just show it in ways that are not always appreciated!  This is a great time for getting organized, tending to practical details in pursuit of our goals, and taking better care of ourselves physically.  Spring cleaning and gardening are favored now, as are scientific and educational endeavors.  We should endeavor not to get too lost in the details, however, and still make some attempt to keep sight of the larger picture, a task which tomorrow’s Sun/Jupiter opposition with certainly assist with.
