November 4th – 10th

Difficult to Stop — Forecast for Nov. 4th – 10th

 

This week’s headline items: On Monday, first Quarter Moon in Aquarius becomes exact, and the Mercury Station ends; Neptune, on the other hand, starts its Station phase on Thursday.

There will be three Moon VoC phases this week: Tuesday late morning (for 8.5 hours), Thursday evening (for a little over 10.5 hours), and Sunday morning (for a little over 9 hours).

Now, this week’s Forecast…

Monday, November 4th:

Monday, the Moon remains in freedom-loving, forward-thinking Aquarius all day; it will journey there until Tuesday early evening. The energy of the Aquarian Moon relates to our instinct for improvement. Reactions are more intellectual than emotional; interactions more impersonal than personal. We are likely to have an increased fascination with the new and unusual.

Social gatherings, anything connected with group ideals and goals for the future, brainstorming, new ideas and methods, progress: all these are promoted during the time the Moon moves through Aquarius. Again: we have our eyes on the future — or on outer space 🙂 Personal freedom becomes paramount.

Monday: Mercury resumes its normal pace through the sky, ending its station — but moving backward through the sky, as seen from Earth (that’s what “retrograde” refers to). If any thinking and/or communication issues have come up around our intimate relationships, or financial partnerships since Oct. 11th, we’ll now have a chance to do some internal work on those issues. We are also invited to investigate anything that needs to be more fully integrated in our personality (i.e. “Shadow” issues).

For more on the Mercury Retrograde phase in relationship to your own Birth Chart, feel free to watch the mp4-video presentation about the “Mercury Retrograde in Scorpio, and its Shadow phases”.

Star and SuperStar Members: check your email for the link to the mp4-video recording and enjoy watching it! I sent it out on Oct. 17th late evening 😉

Monday early morning, at 5:23am EST, the first Quarter Moon in a little over 11.5 degrees of Aquarius becomes exact. We started to feel this aspect from the moment the Moon entered Aquarius last week, Sunday morning (Nov 3rd). The Moon in freedom-loving, progressive, detached, objective Aquarius makes a challenging aspect to the Sun in passionate, all-or-nothing, intimacy-craving Scorpio.

We feel compelled to take action. On Oct. 27th, the New Moon in Scorpio became exact: “Seeds” planted then are probably “sprouting” by now — and making their first real contact with the outside world. This is therefore a time to stretch and grow — and create some forward momentum. We may feel anxious or unusually busy.

As best as you can, go one breath at a time. Allow for changes, remain flexible (as much as possible), and find creative solutions for your day-to-day interactions with others.

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or personal planets) in 9-14 degrees of Aquarius, Scorpio, Taurus, or Leo? If so, you will feel the effects of this first Quarter Moon more strongly than otherwise. This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Leo or Cancer (the Sun rules Leo; the Moon rules Cancer).

Monday late evening, we feel…

October 28 – November 3

A More Fierce Approach to Life — Forecast for Oct. 28th – Nov. 3rd

 

This week’s headline items: Mercury’s station intensifies on Monday and it comes to a halt late on Thursday morning as it begins its 3.5 week retrograde. Start taking action on your New Moon intentions on Friday. Venus changes signs from Scorpio to Sagittarius on Friday afternoon. I should also mention that Daylight Savings Time ends here in the US, very early Sunday.

There will be three Moon VoC phases this week: Tuesday early afternoon (for almost 4.5 hours), Thursday late morning (for a little over 12 hours), and Saturday night/Sunday very early morning (for 4.5 hours).

Before we get to this week’s forecast, let me share this with you:
If you haven’t set your New Moon Intentions yet, Monday all day and Tuesday until 1:34pm EDT is still time to do so during the most potent time… If you’d like some input on how to do that, check out this article — you could also (re-)watch my New Moon video. 

Now, this week’s Forecast…

Monday, Oct. 28th:

Monday, the Moon remains in passionate, all-or-nothing Scorpio all day. It will journey there until Tuesday late afternoon. We feel things deeply and have “X-Ray Vision” and “Bullshit-Smelling Abilities” 😉

Monday early morning, a Sun/Uranus opposition becomes exact at 4:15am EDT. We started to feel this aspect from last week, Thursday (Oct. 24th) on; it will remain strong until this Wednesday (Oct. 30th)What we identify ourselves with could now be challenged: we are asked to create a balance between our urge for personal freedom (including financial freedom), versus our awareness of the importance of intimate, empowering connections and collaborations with others.

This aspect is an invitation to stay open and flexible in regards to our interactions with people. We may need to find a balance between what we value/what’s important to us on a physical level, or with our intimate partnerships, or what’s important to us on an emotional level. As best as you can, be open to receiving feedback from others during this time.

If you experience fear or uncertainty, focus on what it is that you could really get excited about and get behind in a realistic, grounded way — something that could make a difference, something meaningful. Also, take it one moment at a time, there is no need to rush anything 😉 Could you allow yourself to be uncomfortable, just for right now?

We may find that we disagree with other people’s values. We may be restless, even anxious, and therefore feel pressure to act (or react) towards others — or around our desire for financial freedom and independence. We could also be caught off-guard somehow, so stay open-minded and flexible.

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or any personal planets) in the following placements: 1-8 degrees of Scorpio, Taurus, Leo, or Aquarius, ? If so, you may be more affected by this aspect. This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Leo or Aquarius (the Sun rules Leo; Uranus rules Aquarius).

Monday late evening/night, a somewhat challenging Mars/Neptune aspect becomes exact at 11:57pm EDT. We started to feel this aspect from the early this morning (Oct. 28th) on; it will remain strong until Wednesday morning. Our idealism and high expectations could lead us into frustrating circumstances that leave us emotionally and physically drained. Our vitality and emotional resilience increase as we learn how (and where) to get involved in projects we feel passionate about.

That said, we may also have difficulty establishing realistic limits with others and around our own self-expectations; this, combined with a tendency to laziness (especially where exercising good judgment is concerned) could leave us feeling “rudderless” or even overwhelmed. As best as you can therefore, allow for downtime, rest and spiritual connection.

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or personal planets) in 15-17 degrees of Libra or Pisces? If so, you will be more affected by this aspect. This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Aries or Pisces (Mars is the ruler of Aries; Neptune rules Pisces)

Also, on Monday, Mercury’s Station intensifies, as Mercury is preparing to come to a halt on Thursday late morning (beginning its 3.5-week retrograde phase). As I mentioned last week Thursday already, during the station phase, we feel Mercury’s energies more strongly. It will remain at its most intensifies until Nov. 2nd.

Pay attention to anything “in your face” in any of the following areas: communications, short travels, transportation of any kind, communication devices. You will get a chance to make adjustments once Mercury has ended its Retrograde phase (to be more precise, during the shadow phase that follows).

Here are some questions you could ask yourself during the Mercury Station phase: Is my mind drawn to worst-case scenarios? Am I obsessing over something that feels disempowering? What are my motivations? Am I coming from fear? Self-protection? Or from love?

What would it be like to live life fully and completely, feeling empowered in my choices? What will get me 1% closer to that right here and now?

Speaking of the “here and now”, if empowerment only existed in the “now” moment, could I surrender my fears or concerns connected to the past or the future, and simply be present in the here and now? What if I trusted my Higher Self enough to release any suspicious, fearful, or protective thoughts that may arise?

For the next 5 days, we might experience delays or misunderstandings; things could feel “off” or stagnant. It might be a good idea to give yourself some extra time when getting ready to go somewhere — and that goes for the journey itself, too — especially if you intend to drive or use public transportation. Going with the flow is definitely recommended at this time.

Be extra-patient if you intend to buy, sell or ship big-ticket items, especially if they are transportation or communication devices like anything connected with planes, trains, cars, phones, computers, iPads, etc. Best of all (if possible): wait until after Dec.7th, when Mercury’s second shadow phase is over.

New Moon in Scorpio — article

On Oct. 27th at 11:39pm EDT, the Moon aligns with the Sun in 4.5 degrees of Scorpio, beginning a new Moon cycle. This New Moon in passionate, all-or-nothing Scorpio brings our focus to our intimate relationships and deepest emotional desires; if you’d like to learn more about this Lunation, check out my video on the subject 🙂 (will be posted by Oct. 21st in the evening)

Scorpio is the second water sign of the zodiac, so it relates not only to the depths of our own psyche, but also to the ecstasies and traumas of relationships.

Mercury in Scorpio is exalted at the time of this New Moon (due to its station), so we are more aware of our thinking patterns, particularly our tendency to think in extremes or absolutes.

Mercury will come to a halt on Oct. 31st and start its 3-week Retrograde phase. While it is exalted (between Oct. 24th and Nov. 4th), check in with yourself and ask: Is my mind drawn to worst-case scenarios? Am I obsessing over something that feels disempowering? What are my motivations? Am I coming from fear? Self-protection? Or from love? What would it be like to live life fully and completely, feeling empowered in my choices? What will get me 1% closer to that right here and now?

Speaking of the “here and now”, if empowerment only existed in the “now” moment, could I surrender my fears or concerns connected to the past or the future, and simply be present in the here and now? What if I trusted my Higher Self enough to release any suspicious, fearful, or protective thoughts that may arise?

Check to see: Am I ok right now? If I am, is it at least possible that I will be ok in the next moment? And the next?

Feel free to also check out my video presentation about the upcoming Mercury Retrograde phase, to see how all of this is impacting you personally — to purchase this webinar, click here.  Before you invest in the whole 99 min. webinar, feel free to watch a 23-min excerpt here.

Star and SuperStar Members: check your email for the link to the mp4-video recording — and enjoy watching it!

Scorpio also deals with our Shadow issues. The “Shadow” is all the suppressed, denied, or undeveloped qualities of our personality — and wherever we have yet to fully integrate these disowned aspects, we feel disempowered, and are left vulnerable to manipulation or domination.

Furthermore, what we reject in ourselves, we often project onto others — we may experience the shadow as explosions with others or implosions within ourselves. That which we disown, owns us; whatever we resist, persists. So, what Shadow issues need to be addressed over the next four weeks?

Here are some questions to help you reclaim your projections…

Do you have your Ascendant (or any personal planets) in 2-7 degrees of Scorpio, Taurus, Leo or Aquarius? If so, you may feel the effects of this New Moon more strongly. This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Leo or Cancer (the Sun rules Leo; the Moon rules Cancer).

The New Moon is also the best time to set some powerful intentions for this month’s Moon cycle. Intentions are best done soon after the New Moon becomes exact — and definitely not during a Moon void of course phase. So this month, the best time to set intentions would be any time between 11:39pm (Oct. 27th) and 1:34pm (Oct. 29th); then again from 5:58pm until 11:39pm (on Oct. 29th) — New York Time/US Eastern Time

If you live in a timezone other then EDT (US East Coast-time), feel free to join my Facebook Fan-page or follow me on twitter. I will be posting reminders on Oct. 27th after 11:39pm EDT, Monday all day and Tuesday morning and evening, to let you know when it is time to set your intentions.

October 21st – 27th

A Collaborative Approach — Forecast for Oct. 21st – 27th

 

This week’s headline items: the last Quarter Moon in Cancer becomes exact on Monday morning, the Pluto Station ends on Tuesday evening, the Sun changes signs from Libra to Scorpio early Wednesday afternoon; Mercury starts to slow down (station) on Thursday morning, preparing for its 3-week Retrograde phase, the Balsamic Moon phase begins late on Thursday evening, and the New Moon in Scorpio becomes exact on Sunday late evening.

There will also be four Moon VoC phases this week: Monday morning (for almost 4 hours), Wednesday early morning (a little over 10 hours), Friday late morning (almost 7.5 hours) and Sunday early morning (just over 12 hours).

I should also note that Daylight Savings Time ends in Europe and Great Britain early Sunday morning,

Before we get to this week’s forecast, let me share this with you:

Now, this week’s Forecast…

Monday, October 21st:

Monday, the Moon remains protective, nurturing in Cancer until 12:29pm EDT. With this Moon placement, we are more sensitive to what people say and therefore our feelings are more easily hurt — so be kind to yourself and others. Self-Care is key for the next several hours 😉

Emotional safety is important to us as well; we like connecting to the familiar and we enjoy nurturing ourselves and others — home and family call to us, for instance. Make sure though, that your glass is filled before letting others drink from it, otherwise you might start to feel drained and resentful.

Monday morning, at 8:39am EDT, the last Quarter Moon in almost 28 degrees of Cancer becomes exact. We started to feel this aspect build from the moment the Moon entered Cancer, last week Saturday (Oct. 19th). The Moon in protective, nurturing Cancer makes a challenging aspect to the Sun harmony-oriented, idealistic Libra. This may bring challenges; however, it also energizes us to face what demands completion or change.

This Moon phase brings us closer to Oct. 27th, which will bring the New Moon in Scorpio. During the last Quarter Moon, we are best served not by beginning new projects, but by reviewing existing ones — particularly those we started around or after the time of the New Moon in Libra (Sept. 28th).

What is asking to be completed? As best as you can, find creative solutions for anything that comes up, whether it’s internal or with others.

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or personal planets) in 26-29 degrees of Cancer, Libra, Capricorn, Aries or 0 degrees of Leo, Scorpio, Aquarius, or Taurus? If so, you will feel this month’s last Quarter Moon quite strongly. This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Leo or Cancer, since the Sun rules Leo and the Moon rules Cancer.

As the last Quarter Moon becomes exact, on Monday at 8:39am EDT, we also enter a Moon Void of Course (VoC), that lasts for almost 4 hours until 12:29pm EDT. Use this intuitive time to make some adjustments in your life. As best as you can, find creative solutions to seemingly unsolvable situations.

Make space for the emotionally familiar, giving and receiving support, and pampering your inner baby — but also for intellectually harmonious one-on-one engagement and creating a balanced environment with others. As always with a Moon VoC, as best as you can, don’t start anything brand-new, stick to routine things, or simply go with the flow. You may also want to plan Monday morning until the early afternoon ahead of time.

Monday at 12:29pm EDT, the Moon moves into fun and attention-loving Leo, where it will journey until Wednesday afternoon. We have a chance to appreciate ourselves and our lives — and to connect to the heart. Hand out as many compliments as possible, they will be deeply appreciated 🙂 Fun, games and romance are a big part of this energy. You might also enjoy spending time with little ones.

What are you most grateful for today? What would be heaps of fun? What would be so much fun, you squeak just thinking about it?

Monday afternoon, a harmonious Venus/Neptune aspect becomes exact at 3:40pm EDT. We started to feel this aspect from last week, Saturday (Oct. 19th) on; it will be strong until this week Wednesday (Oct. 23rd). This supports us with the flow of feelings, especially in connection to our relationships and whatever we most value. Bringing compassion to our deepest feelings (including fears) and how we relate to others is going to feel easier at this time.

Our intuition and instincts are strongly supported here too. It becomes easier to trust others and open up to them; we give ourselves permission to receive love and emotional support. As best as you can, let all feelings flow.

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or personal planets) in…

Now, this week’s Forecast…

 

Monday, October 14th:

Monday, the Moon remains in pioneering, fast-paced Aries and VoC until 12:24pm EDT. 

Monday very early morning, an opportune Mercury/Saturn aspect becomes exact at 2:56am EDT. We started to feel this aspect build from last week, Saturday (Oct. 12th) on, it will remain strong until this Tuesday (Oct. 15th ). This is an opportunity to take responsibility for our thinking structures and be really honest with ourselves.

How can we get the most from this opportunity? By allowing ourselves to go deeper as we investigate our fear-based thinking or self-defeating behaviors. As best as you can, commit to understanding your conditioning and thinking processes.

If we take this chance to see things more clearly and connect to ourselves more deeply, we could get a good dose of reality, and an ability to focus on long-term issues. Remember: opportunities are openings; they aren’t necessarily handed to us — we have to “take” them and make something of them.

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or any personal planets) in 12-17 degrees of Scorpio, Capricorn, Pisces or Virgo? If so, you may be more aware of this opportunity. This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Gemini, Virgo or Capricorn (Mercury is the ruler of Gemini and Virgo; Saturn rules Capricorn).

Also, Monday very early morning, a challenging Sun/Pluto aspect becomes exact at 3:38am EDT. We started to feel this aspect build from last week, Thursday (Oct. 10th) on, it will remain strong until this Thursday (Oct. 17th). What we identify ourselves with could now be challenged. This aspect forces us to confront our will, power, assertion, and authority.

Coming into focus now: the relationship with a father-figure (or other important males). We may face the need to be more independent, assertive, and autonomous.

We may alienate others with a controlling, jealous, or overbearing manner. This manner stems from a deep fear of letting go and surrendering to the idea that some things cannot be directed or controlled. We are learning to detach from (let go of) something or someone that no longer serves us — the “something” could include attitudes.

This fear may also lead us to compulsive, suspicious, or difficult behavior, costing us the very thing that we hold dear. As best as you can, open yourself up to the power of love within. When you do, you will discover your own strength, and rework your very identity. Perhaps most importantly, this aspect puts us face to face with exactly what’s been holding us back from leading a fuller, more meaningful life.

We may have to make some changes or adjustments between our immediate personal desires and our long-term goals. As best as you can, be open to receiving feedback from others during this time.

If you feel pressured into doing something or you feel a power struggle build, as best as you can, get centered, get grounded and open your heart and mind. This aspect is a major growth opportunity for us: we struggle with buried elements of our personality and ego, learning to face, accept and transform them.

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or personal planets) in 17-24 degrees of Libra, Capricorn, Aries or Cancer? If so, you will be more affected by this aspect. This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Leo or Scorpio (the Sun is the ruler of Leo; Pluto rules Scorpio).

Monday at 12:24pm EDT, the Moon moves into steady, peaceful Taurus, where it will journey until Wednesday late evening. We love all physical comforts, prefer consistency, and would rather stick with what we know works well. In other words …

Full Moon in Aries — article

On Oct. 13th, at 5:08pm EDT, the Sun opposes the Moon in 20 degrees of Aries — the Moon in pioneering, fast-paced Aries makes an opposition to the Sun in harmony-loving, balance-seeking Libra.

Generally, a Full Moon brings our attention to our “emotional body”, increasing our awareness of what has been suppressed or ignored. This is especially true for this particular Full Moon — for much of this month, we are invited to direct our attention toward deeper self-care and more authentic connections to our emotional bodies. If you are a site Member, you may also want to watch my video on the subject

The Aries/Libra polarity directs our awareness to the roles we identify with in our various one-on-one relationships — and this Full Moon is thus a call to take action on those roles. In particular, it brings the focus to “independence”, so ask yourself: Where do I need to be more assertive? More accommodating? Where have I been too independent? Too dependent? What roles or contracts need to be revisited?

This also involves the balance of feminine and masculine energies within ourselves, our relationships, and our world. Ask: Where have these energies gone out of balance? What happens when there is too much masculine? Too much feminine?

On the day of the Full Moonthe Sun in Libra sextiles Jupiter in Sagittarius, and the Moon in Aries trines Jupiter. We feel an enthusiasm for personal achievement and exploration; in particular, we have an urge to explore something new that helps us develop an all-around understanding of the bigger picture. Focusing on…

Now, this week’s Forecast…

Monday, October 7th:

Monday, the Moon remains in freedom-loving, forward-thinking Aquarius all day; it will journey there until Wednesday early afternoon. The energy of the Aquarian Moon relates to our instinct for improvement. Reactions are more intellectual than emotional; interactions more impersonal than personal. We are likely to have an increased fascination with the new and unusual.

Social gatherings, anything connected with group ideals and goals for the future, brainstorming, new ideas and methods, progress: all these are promoted during the time the Moon moves through Aquarius. Again: we have our eyes on the future — or on outer space 🙂 Personal freedom becomes paramount.

Monday very early morning, a Mercury/Uranus opposition becomes exact at 2:17am EDT. We started to feel this aspect build from last week, Friday night (Oct. 4th) on, it will remain strong until this Wednesday. We are better off thinking outside the box for those four days. We want to change a life situation (or intimate relationship) that is out of alignment with who we now want to be.

Our minds may feel overwhelmed by what all this means, especially as it relates to our intimate relationships or financial partnerships. Stay calm, as best as you can: Sudden or rash decisions might backfire. Do your best to ground all your thinking, connect to your body, and allow yourself to fully receive any new insights.

We are very likely to feel quite nervous or anxious at this time, as we become aware of what’s not working for us anymore — and the itch to move forward and realize a new vision feels very strong. It may well be true that something needs to change — but we must take care not to rush into anything.

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or personal planets) in the following: 2-9 degrees of Scorpio, Taurus, Aquarius, or Leo? If so, you will be more affected by this aspect. This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Gemini, Virgo or Aquarius (Mercury is the ruler of Gemini and Virgo; Uranus is the ruler of Aquarius).

Monday late morning, we may feel pulled in two quite different directions: On the one hand, we experience a need for connecting with like-minded people and remaining objective; on the other hand, we want to make space for pursuing our financial vision — and we also want to break free from outdated value systems.

As such, we may have to address what we value in both in others, and in ourselves (which informs our self-worth); as best as you can, make adjustments and find creative solutions when it comes to these energies.

Also, Monday late morning, we may feel pulled in two quite different directions: On the one hand, we experience a need for connecting with like-minded people and remaining objective; on the other hand, we want to go deeper, and communicate from a place of passion and empowerment.

We may thus have to address our fears and “issues”; as best as you can, make adjustments and find creative solutions when it comes to these energies.

Monday afternoon, a challenging Sun/Saturn aspect becomes exact at 3:07pm EDT. We started to feel this aspect build from last week, Friday (Oct. 4th) on, it will remain strong until this Thursday evening. We’re asked to stretch and grow beyond what we have previously known ourselves to be; our commitments and responsibilities towards others are calling us to get out of our comfort zone.

Find creative ways to honor both your various one-on-one relationships, and your desire to focus on your long-term goals; allow for a balanced approach even if life puts up roadblocks or throws some curveballs.

What if you simply knew that you could handle whatever shows up? Would you rather have old structures in place, or a more collaborative approach to achieving things? Would you rather achieve status or harmonious relationships? What if you just decided to bring maturity and self-responsibility to the table when dealing with others, no matter what?

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or personal planets) in….
