Weekly Astrology December 28th to January 3rd, 2015

Monday: Leo Moon

Leo Moon in harmony with Saturn aims for long term decisions and sensible action. Saturn relates to elders, health, and responsibilities and while in Sagittarius emphasizes education, global business, and travel plans too. Uranus in harmony with the Moon is spontaneous, quick and sometimes alarming.  Enjoy last minute plans. Respond to unplanned situations with a deep breath and moment of thought. Use your wits and let nothing get too out of hand. Today's color is gold.

Tuesday: Leo to Virgo Moon

From 12:38 to 1:56 pm ET, the Moon is void of course in Leo. Before 12:38 the Moon is in harmony with Mars and Mercury squares Mars. Matters of fairness are stirred up for discussion. Keep in mind that Mercury is practical and values order and acting on plans while in Capricorn. It's a delicate balance if you're sorting something out with another party, partner, or colleague. An extra dose of logical thinking and list of pros and cons can help move things along.  Virgo Moon arrives at 1:56 pm and has no aspects to planets today. The Sun aligns with Neptune and Virgo Moon moves across from Neptune by morning. Neptune influences romantic thinking, creativity and imagination while the Capricorn Sun and Virgo Moon ground us and have a more sensible vibe.  This is a good blend of heart and hands for making, doing and nurturing.  Artistically these aspects may help you get something from your imagination to the page, canvas or other media.  Today's color is navy blue. 

Wednesday: Venus in Sagittarius

Virgo Moon aligns with Pluto and the Sun in Capricorn and is favorable for organizing, taking care of the to-do list, and acting rationally in the face of fears, self doubt or other emotions.  Be real and clear with yourself before dealing with others or the outside world. The Moon squares Saturn and opposes Neptune.  Again, don't get lost in tales of what might be or make excuses.  Live in the moment and be rational in every way.  Venus moves to Sagittarius, for a one month stay, at 2:16 am ET. In Sagittarius, the planet of love is adventurous and flirtatious. Travel has a stronger pull.  Sagittarius is favored generally while Gemini is favored in love and Pisces for career plans and publicity.  Today's color is brown. 

Thursday: Moon conjunct Jupiter

The Moon meets Jupiter, the planet that acted with Mercury and Venus during last week's Full Moon. Vibes from agreements, relationships,  reunions and hopeful discussions ring in the air.  Positive outcomes and closure are favored.  Jupiter is planet of blessings, pleasures, learning, travels and health. Be aware of your own good fortune and abundance.  Today's color is indigo.

Friday: Happy 2016! Mercury in Aquarius

Mercury moves to Aquarius and is preparing for retrograde. The path of Mercury today is one that will be retraced quickly.  Mull things over and don't feel pressured to act. Minds will change, as will systems during the weeks just ahead.  2016 begins with the Moon moving to Libra, sign of justice and partnerships, at 1:41 am ET after a short void of course time. The Moon aligns with Mercury at 12:33 am, beginning the voc hour.  Caution during that period 12:33 to 1:41 when the world is in varying degrees of celebrating the new year. Especially in the USA, stay grounded and aware, travel carefully and keep track of your belongings.  Libra Moon favors duos, couples, best friends, and partnering up to get things done or have some fun.  Today's color is pink.

Saturday: Libra Moon

Planetary actions are similar to last Saturday, the 26th, when the Moon was in cardinal Cancer, post Full Moon.  Libra is also a cardinal sign, as is Aries and Capricorn. These signs host the major activity today.  Tests and challenges come up, whether emotional or intellectual. Our ability to remain calm, rational and non judgmental comes into play and should be helpful as we navigate uncertainty, power struggles, and unexpected situations.  Moon and Saturn are in harmony so following protocol, traditions or rules is important. Void of course from Moon 11:23 am ET on. Today's color is blue.

Sunday: Scorpio Moon, Mars in Scorpio

The Moon shifts to Scorpio at 2:36 pm ET and is void until then. Avoid shopping, sharing announcements and news (unless you want it to be skimmed over and forgotten easily), and significant decisions.  Commit after 2:36 pm for long term results.  Mars storms into Scorpio at 9:32 am, a place where Mars exerts his power.  Take into consideration that vengeance and anger are traits of Mars in Scorpio. Today the Moon and Mars meet and Moon squares Mercury in Aquarius. This looks like a stubborn day where emotional situations could be hard to deal with.  If you need to put all your focus on one thing and get a great deal accomplished, this maybe your day.  Wear dark reds, like maroon, today.

Monday: Winter Solstice, Taurus Moon

Today's color is green for the earth energy of Taurus Moon aligned with both Pluto in Capricorn and Neptune in Pisces. Zone in on what's most valuable and pressing today. Working around the house and with the hands is favored as is business done conservatively and with thoughtfulness.  The Sun moves to Capricorn at 11:49 pm ET. Here in the northeast there's actually one minute more of daylight between sunrise and sunset today.  

Tuesday: Taurus to Gemini Moon

Full Moon warmup begins for Christmas morning at 6:12 em ET in Cancer, sign of family and home.  Home is a focus of the entire week, whether you're traveling under the upcoming Gemini Moon, for commuters, or preparing for the holiday at your house.  From 9:26 am ET until 9:31 pm the Taurus Moon is void of course which is not so good for major purchases. Save all receipts. Do what's necessary or relaxing during these hours. Catch up on simple tasks. It's a great time to wrap presents, exercise or do food shopping.  Ease relationship strain, with Venus across from the Moon, with good conversations. Mercury aligns with the Moon for talks and travels.  Today's color is pink.

Wednesday: Gemini Moon

Gemini Moon opposes Saturn, bringing a serious tone to business including negotiations within the family.  Full Moon warms up, adding pressure to make decisions and complete projects.  Some flexibility is called for though it may not be easy to find.  The Moon squares Neptune and could add to feelings of distraction or uncertainty.  Don't rely too much on one person, one particular outcome or a fixed way of doing things. Rigid expectations are likely to cause frustration. Today's color is blue.

Thursday: Gemini Moon, Venus sextile Jupiter

Gemini Moon is void of course at 3:04 pm to 12:27 am Friday. Finish up before 3 pm, whatever it is you have to accomplish. The relax into Full Moon of family and home.

Today's color is pale blue as the Full Moon peaks at 6:12 am ET.  Roots and feelings of comfort and grounding are very important.

Mercury aligns with the Moon easing communication in families and inspiring plans and performances.  Enjoy each others' company without questions or pressures.  The aspects favor a very harmonious Full Moon Christmas.  

Saturday: Cancer Moon

As the Moon glides through Cancer, it's not as smooth a journey today. Squares challenge us. Keep the frustration level low.  Avoid topics that lead to arguments. Negotiate only the simplest of things. Remember it's still Full Moon time and Cancer is a very sensitive, emotional, and defensive sign for a Full Moon. Ride the beautiful waves of reunions and celebrations Venus, Jupiter and Mercury helped create. Let little things go and save big issues for another day. From 10:36 pm ET the Moon is void of course until 5:31 am.
Today's color is blue.

Weekly Astrology December 14th to 20th, 2015

Monday: Aquarius Moon, Sun square Jupiter

Aquarius Moon time begins at 7:59 am. Hours before that are void of course and prone to mix ups or dreaming a bit extra. Set the alarm if you need to be somewhere.  The Sun square Jupiter in Sagittarius and Virgo and Mercury trine Neptune, for different reasons, indicate talks about how far to go and how big to dream. This is a day for sorting through personal goals and problems. With Aquarius Moon it's about moving beyond your own best interests to take into consideration the whole group, family, community or world interests. As you act on something that may seem individual or small, keep the whole picture, the ripple effect in mind.  Neptune could lead conversations and planning astray, and if you want to get past imagining and into making things happen you might benefit from letting go of a preconceived vision in favor of one that's more realistic and do-able.  Today's color is turquoise.

Tuesday: Aquarius Moon

Aquarius Moon is very busy contacting planets from Saturn to Uranus, Mars and Venus.  Mixed influences include serious decision making, responding quickly and intelligently to sudden changes or information, and seeking some yield or some kind of truce in a difficult relationship.  The final aspect is with Mars at 6:24 pm (and then with the Sun at 2:17 am ET). Mars in Libra wants justice and Aquarius has global health in mind. The phrase 'fair trade' is a good representation of what's going on with this trine.  Is there a place you could be more involved, take more of a giving role or step back and balance things by not shouldering so much so someone else can find their role and their way. If you've been enabling, this could be the day to step back with a more objective point of view.  The sextile coming up overnight, with the Sun, makes decisions easier and helps with our confidence.  It may also facilitate easy travels.  Today's color is blue.

Wednesday: Aquarius to Pisces Moon

The Moon is void of course from 2:17 am ET to 12:45 pm, after a sextile with the Sun. Pisces Moon moves in then. Moods brighten, burdens lessen, and sails are smooth with any luck! It's not the best morning for spending, dealing with detail or imparting important information. It is a good day to mix socializing with business, have a company breakfast, and gather with only good cheer in mind.  There are no other planetary aspects today.  Enjoy the company of others. Today's color is light green.

Thursday: Pisces Moon

Today is like the variety pack where you get a little sample of everything.  Emotional tone is present as the Moon visits one of our most sensitive signs. Notice intuition and sense of things we cannot see yet believe in. Mercury sextile Pluto offers time to look within, be your own guide and advisor, and gently converse about something that needs sorting out. It's a good day for self care, doing healthy things for your feet (ruled by Pisces), and buying new shoes or boots.  Go easy on yourself and others as much as possible. Today's color is black.

Friday: Pisces to Aries Moon

From 10:14 am to 4:26 pm ET, the Moon is in that transitional void of course time.  Less is more. Minimize your schedule. Clear some clutter, but carefully so you don't lost a paper or object you'll need later.  Have company parties or leisurely lunches. Expect that progress will be minimal. The important pieces of information or people may not be present.  It's a good day for time off, but not if you plan to do holiday shopping. Save all your receipts. It's another good day for self care, escaping the usual routine, and doing simple preparations or tasks you haven't had time for. Be creative and loose with expectations.  The Moon is opposite Jupiter. Don't go overboard with anything including emotional responses.  The Moon and Sun square in mutable signs and what you think may not be the outcome at all. Aries Moon comes at 4:26 pm and it could provide a wild night.  If you'd rather skip the madness, take the night to yourself with the Moon in the 1st sign, representing the individual. Today's color is red. 

Saturday: Aries Moon, Mercury conjunct Pluto

There's a very bold, fiery influence on the external side. People are likely to be rushing, act competitively or aggressively as Moon meets Uranus and prepares to oppose Mars on Sunday. Pluto is the quiet, more subtle influence from a more inner place. This prompts reflection, introspection and quiet, but important discussions.  Some will face things they've avoided, compartmentalized or hidden in order not to answer to or fully feel.  Some will make strong declarations of previously unspoken feelings or motives.  All aspects seem to have a trigger point for release, so keep those releases healthy and manageable.  It's not a good day to lose control of emotions, but rather to understand them better.  With all of these planetary aspects to the emotional Moon, most activities could go either way depending on the personalities and circumstances involved.  Remain calm and non-confrontational. Today's color is white.

Sunday: Aries to Taurus Moon, Mercury square Uranus

Mercury met Pluto and goes on to square Uranus today. The results of introspection, conversation, and interaction yesterday lead to decisions and announcements, complete with the after effects. News may not go over well at first. Some discussions will overheat and become arguments. People are likely to speak impulsively and say things defensively or insensitively.   Mars opposite the Moon does nothing to help. Passive aggression and other unproductive ways of dealing with interpersonal issues is the likely result.  At 5:01 pm to 7:13 pm ET, the Moon is void of course before entering Taurus.  How delicately and tactfully can you manage yourself in the face of stress or insanity today? Make sure whatever you undertake is worth it and that you're prepared to handle the results and people's reactions. This is the final evening of Sagittarius time.  Today's color is lavender.

Sunday, I'm at Scarborough Yoga for a special Winter Solstice Yoga practice and guided meditation, yoga nidra. Register online. Last year we filled the room so reserve in advance. $20

Weekly Astrology December 7th to 13th, 2015

Monday: Scorpio Moon, Moon conjunct Venus

After an overnight void of course, the Moon shifts to strong willed Scorpio at 6:26 am ET and meets Venus, planet of love, at 12:25 pm. In Scorpio, Venus is consumed with the object or person of desire. An undeniable pull, like a strong tide, characterizes this conjunction. The Moon, our emotional side, is driven and perhaps preoccupied by matters of love.  Urgent need to contact, be reassured or express feelings could come with this Venus meeting.  Aside from relationship, in our other tasks and endeavors, perfectionism and the search for perfect harmony is in the forecast. There's a surge of creative energy as the Moon also aligns with Neptune, the zodiac's other romance planet.  Today's color is maroon.

Tuesday: Sun trine Uranus

The Moon forms a sextile, harmonious angle, with Pluto. There's a darkness that goes with this and it may feel melancholy, slightly anxious, or just a bit more introverted.  It's a good day to tune into feelings, intuition, and acknowledge things you struggle with. Do this in order to find more guidance, even from within. New Moon is coming Friday, and now is the time to reconsider your path.  The Sun in Sagittarius combines forces with Uranus in Aries, a powerhouse of fire energy.  Sudden bursts of activity, unexpected announcements, and other unpredictable events occur. With the Sun in Sagittarius this relates to honest revelations, reasons to travel or move, and completely unplanned changes.  Today's color is red.

Wednesday: Sagittarius Moon

The Moon is void of course from 1:39 am ET to 5:25 pm. This is a long void Moon in Scorpio. Try not to get too fixed on outcomes. Do routine tasks that require little extra effort, especially mental effort. Take a few hours to yourself. Avoid spending and shopping. Save bigger decisions or meetings for another time.  This can be a very enjoyable day as Jupiter harmonizes with the Moon at 1:39 am and has the last word. Jupiter in Virgo helps with versatility, adaptability and spontaneous plans.  It looks like a good day to work around the landscape or house, decorate, build, or make things.  Get grounded in pleasurable tasks.  At 5:25 pm the Moon moves to Sagittarius for an active social or study night. Mercury changes signs, cruising into Capricorn for a few weeks, at 9:34 pm. Mercury influences problem solving, organizations and leadership for this cycle. Continue to avoid the more significant decisions and expenses tonight as Mercury settles into a new place.  Wear purple today. 

Thursday: Sagittarius Moon

With New Moon in Sag arriving tomorrow, decide, plan and be prepared to move on things swiftly late this week and next. Be realistic and avoid the influence of Neptune squaring the Moon. Feel confident and serious with decisions as the Moon and Saturn meet. Sagittarius Moon and the New Moon signal new adventures waiting. There's opposition and uncertainty as Mars opposes Uranus today. This can be confrontational, relate to accidents and arguments.  Take plenty of care with what you do and where you go, not only today but for days on either side of this opposition.  Avoid volatile, violent, overheated situations. It's not a great day to get involved in protests or crowds where unstable people could be drawn.  This is not a day to debate or confront someone. Be safe around electricity, power tools and fire.  Take the peaceful warrior stance if you must hold your ground. Today's color is light blue.

Friday: New Moon in Sagittarius, Venus trine Neptune

With luck this will be a fun, romantic day. New Moon activates movement and change and is exact at 5:29 am ET. Mars, Jupiter and Uranus are all influences. Mars brings justice to the table from Libra. Jupiter urges health and productivity from Virgo, and Uranus contributes to the speed of occurrences late this week. Perspective can switch and expand quite suddenly. Aha moments are likely. From new awarenesses spring the truth, the core, and the freedom that goes with realization. Breakthroughs characterize this New Moon. At 11:06 am ET, void of course Moon starts so do important meetings and conversations before then. Enjoy celebrations. Expect things to go at their own speed rather than any predetermined one. Latecomers and mix ups are likely today. Wear white.

Saturday: Capricorn Moon

Capricorn Moon begins at 1:46 am ET. Mercury newly in Capricorn meets the Moon at 8:43 am for a very decisive day, full of news and conversation. Some announcements will be surprising, related to moving, travel, global business, system changes, and educational institutions or plans.  Today's get-it-done Capricorn Moon is balanced by Venus in Scorpio and Neptune in Pisces, both bringing feelings, emotional connections, and love more into the picture. Do something constructive with your family or the one you love! There's a traditional influence playing out during this weekend's activities.  Stick with the tried and true. Today's color is green.

Sunday: Capricorn Moon

Astrological influences test and challenge more today, though some of that may have been at work from mid week on.  The Moon meets shadowy Pluto, squares Mars and Uranus, the two that opposed each other on Thursday.  Upsets occur easily on days like this. Resolve to be only peaceful, not to push emotional buttons and keep things simple and cool.  Some personal project, writing, organizing and introspection is worth your time.  The Moon aligns with Jupiter in Virgo making it a great study or project day.  Void of course Moon begins at 6:07 pm ET. Relax tonight. Wear gray.
