Astro Vibrational Tapestry Report
by Starlene Breiter & Nikki Rich
The first aspect of the day before our lovely lady moon moves into her void-of-course phase is when the moon meets Jupiter to make a sextile, this peaks at 1:39 AM EDT. This is a high energy and optimistic vibration. We will probably feel like we are in a really good mood. It might be one of those nights you stay up late, but not because you can’t sleep, more because you just want to!
We begin the day with the moon in Scorpio today, so intensity is high. Remember Scorpio moon takes no prisoners in the department of passion. And Scorpio moon is famous for bringing out those high emotions, good, bad or otherwise! (I was kind-of just kidding about the “prisoners” thing, well, kind of – *wink*) Even though the moon is in Scorpio today she is also void-of-course from 1:39 AM ET.
Since the moon is void-of-course in Scorpio; this is an excellent time for you to do some honest meditation. Go deep within your heart and feel your emotions. That which is love, you make flourish all over your life. That which is anything but love, you release and let go. As you let go of those negative emotions, thank them for being there while they were and the beautiful lessons you were given because of their presence. Remember nothing is “on accident” in this world.
In the later morning Mercury ingresses into the sign of Capricorn. Capricorn is the boss of the zodiac. So essentially the communicator of the planets moves into the bosses home for a bit. We might notice our thoughts and mind being quite productive, mentally active and find ourselves working on things that have a tangible outcome. Mercury in Capricorn is not in the “best” position of the zodiac but its also not in the worst position of the zodiac! In Classical Astrology it has what is called Term. This means that Mercury works well in Capricorn.
Capricorn loves history, heritage and traditions as something they hold dear. While Mercury is in Capricorn (until January 1, 2015 when Mercury moves into Aquarius) you can expect these sorts of things to occupy your mind. The shadow side of Merucry in Capricorn can have us sometimes feeling a bit moody, or even like we are not showing a lot of enthusiasm or kind of sulky. Do yourself a favor and don’t let that melancholy feeling take up too much of your mind in this time. Remember to shake things up a bit and that you can still be responsible but even the responsible people need to have fun too!
The thing about this passing of Mercury in Capricorn is that it does move into Aquarius on January 1, but it doesn’t stay there long because it goes into its retrograde phase on January 5. Then it moves retrograde back into Capricorn on the 8th of January. So whatever experiences you are thinking about and working on during this first passing of Merucry into Capricorn (starting today until January 1) you will revisit again, in a backwards sort of way starting on the 8th of January when Mercury retrogrades into Capricorn again. Do yourself a favor and err on the positive qualities of Mercury in Capricorn instead of the lesser energy side of Mercury in Capricorn. This will help you when Mercury makes its retrograde phase in January.
A great gemstone to work with today is Mahogany Obsidian, because it helps to balance your energies and allows a gentle release of those deep things.
Patchouli would be a great essential oil to work with. It will help you get that deep digging going on but at the same time keep you calm and peaceful.
Another exciting day in the stars! As if we haven’t had enough excitement lately it just keeps getting better! The moon spends the day in Sagittarius which give us a sense of adventure. We like to be on the go with the moon in Sagittarius. We like to be social and connect to something larger than ourselves, but we also want our independence.
The first aspect today is the moon square Neptune which peaks at 7:06 AM EST. This aspect is subtle but it might make it tougher than usual to get out of bed. We would like to sleep and dream a bit longer today.
The moon conjoins Saturn at 10:02 AM making us feel a little constricted. Things are serious when Saturn is involved, and in this case it means that our emotions, our mood is serious. But remember that the moon’s influences are subtle and changeable and that this one will pass soon enough.
The big aspect of the day is Mars opposite Uranus which peaks at 8:31 PM. This is electric! Unpredictable! Spontaneous! Fun! But be careful … it also means that accidents are likely if we don’t pay attention to what we are doing! So make sure you are paying attention but don’t forget to have fun! Under this influence we will also feel like doing something out of the ordinary so if you are feeling creative or have a fun idea just go for it! Something physical is good under this aspect, like sledding or skiing or ice skating. Just don’t break your leg doing it!
A good stone to work with today is jasper which helps to increase your luck (which you may b=need on this accident-prone day).
An essential oil I would recommend is Narcissus which helps empower us which aids us in expressing out individuality today.
The moon is active this morning first making a trine to Uranus at 1:01 AM ET. This enhances the Mars Uranus opposition from yesterday. This can mean some little or even big surprise is on its way to you. This is a nice energy and can be highly inspirational for letting your emotions out, so have fun and if you didn’t get some sort of surprise. Then maybe you should have some fun surprising someone else!
Next Venus makes a harmonious trine to Neptune at 1:13AM ET. This energy is a great one for daydreaming or spending time with your sweetie. It is a sweet energy for the morning that will last throughout the day.
The moon then comes to a sextile to Mars at 1:14 AM ET. This aspect can help make the morning productive, whether you have work to do or a workout. Get something done, if you can!
The next aspect is when the moon and sun conjunct in the sky, thus creating a new moon. The energy of the new moon in Sagittarius has us thinking about our higher consciousness and learning. Sagittarius moon is fun, jovial and wants some adventure in life. This would be an excellent day for you to do a little new moon ritual with yourself where you sort out those Sagittarius things you want to incorporate into your life over the next 6 months. How about beginning a “bucket list” of things to do before the next year? How about deciding to pick a subject of higher learning and focusing yourself on that? Those are both Sagittarius things. What Sagittarius wants is you to think outside of the box – then take some action on that, don’t just think about it!
The final aspect for today is when the moon makes a square to Jupiter at 11:06 AM EDT. This aspect can have us feeling a little overly inflated with our emotions and feelings. Try to keep them in check and not go overboard with anything that pops up. Just keep the balance under this transit!
The moon then moves into another long void-of-course phase right after that last aspect at 11:6 AM EDT and stays there untl tomorrow morning at 1:46 AM EDT. Fortunately the moon has what we call “Face” in Sagittarius, therefore the void moon in Sagittarius is not quite as challenging as when it is in some other signs. You might take some time to do things for yourself and contemplate the bigger things in the universe.
A great stone to work with today is rhodochrosite which will help you with the Venus Saturn sextile in the morning and help you navigate through bringing your heart into the structure you are creating for yourself.
An essential oil I would recommend to use today is German chamomile which is known for it’s calming effects.
Today is a light day from an astrological perspective. All of the aspects happening involve the moon which is a subtle influence in our day to day lives. The moon is more about our moods than about actions, and the moods today should be pleasant!
The moon enters Capricorn at 1:46 AM ET. The moon in Capricorn isn’t particularly interested in moods … they are more focused on being productive. The moon in Capricorn can have a very dry sense of humor … so have fun and use your sense of humor today! And get something productive done!
The moon conjoins Mercury at 8:43 AM. This is like a light bulb going on in our heads! Have a bright idea? Then do it!
At 2:55 PM the moon makes a sextile to Neptune … good for daydreaming, watching movies, and wandering aimlessly. So hopefully you got anything that you needed to get done finished before this aspect peaks!
The moon makes a sextile to Venus which peaks at 6:36 PM. This is great energy for a date night or a family night. Time spent with loved ones. Not ooey-gooey time together but like board games or something else that allows you to spend time together and have fun, too!
A good essential oil to use today is sweet orange which makes everything a little brighter.
A stone to work with today is pyrite which helps protect against negativity.
Sorry we did not post a Astro Vibrational Tapestry Report for today, Sunday, December 13! But let me say … the astro weather is so light today we really don’t even need one! There are only lunar aspects which is like soft background noise. Nothing major today, thankfully! We have been inundated in recent days and weeks with very strong energies so it is nice to have a brief relief!
The moon in Capricorn allows us to focus on being productive while not letting ourselves get overly emotional about anything. It is a good day to take care of any holiday prep you haven’t already finished!
The moon goes void-of-course at 6:07 PM ET which means that we should use the rest of the evening for relaxing and rejuvenating. A long hot bath, or a good movie, or a relaxing night spent with time for meditation and prayer … whatever helps you to unwind I recommend it for tonight!
We start the day with a void-of-course moon in Capricorn but early enough she moves into Aquarius, at 7:59 AM ET. Moon in Aquarius is eccentric and quirky, full of ideas that other moons might not be able to envision but which the Aquarian moon embraces as novel and obvious. Moon in Aquarius is often more alive within their own heads instead of in the “real world”.
The sun makes a square to Jupiter which peaks at 10:02 AM. This aspect tends to make us feel optimistic but it can also lead to excess … like I feel so wonderful I think I’ll eat an entire plate of cookies … only to regret it later. Keep this in mind today because the energy will be active all day long. Focus on the optimism part of the day and let the excess pass you by! If you are doing holiday shopping this might have you spending more money than you planned, so if you are shopping on a budget be careful!
Mercury makes a sextile to Neptune which is exact at 2:40 PM. This aspect is one of dreams and fantasies, of imagination and wonder. Magic is in the air and we can feel it is real! This is great if we are painting something creative or decorating for the holidays but it might have us staring out the window hoping for a white Christmas if we are stuck doing something mundane.
A good stone to use today is smoky quartz which helps to ground us … which we need to counteract the sun/Jupiter and Mercury/Neptune aspects.
An essential oil to try today is grapefruit which optimizes our moods and helps us feel fresh.
The moon is in interesting and quirky Aquarius all day today. Aquarius is the free thinker of the zodiac, the one that is something eccentric or simply unique. Do something with yourself that you do not always do, satisfy the inner curiosity of the Aquarius moon. There is some lively energy later in the day so do something with yourself to enjoy it!
Early in the morning the moon comes to a sextile with Saturn. This aspect has us feeling confident and like we can give some good advise. It would be a good time to get a reading from us if you have some questions! This aspect is supportive for those that want to help others in need too. So if you can do something helpful for someone now would be the time to do it! Random acts of kindness are always nice under a moon Saturn sextile.
Next the moon makes a square to Venus which is exact at 5:27 AM ET. This influence makes us feel relaxed and somewhat emotional. These emotions can be a little overwhelming so if you fee that way, just know that this too shall pass. It is good to sense your emotions though as they help you intuitively navigate through the day.
In the afternoon the moon makes a sextile to Uranus which peaks at 1:20PM ET. this aspect enhances the Aquarian energy. We feel independent and are not afraid of doing our own thing in our own way. Enjoy a spark of fun this afternoon if you can, even if it is something as simple as a practical joke or bit of laughter.
The last aspect of today is when moon makes a trine to Mars at 6:24 PM ET this evening. This has us feeling a little excited and motivated too. Sometimes Mars transits can be challenging because its such a hot planet but this harmonious trine to the moon supports the busy fast energy and heat of Mars! Go out and do something fun this morning, like take an exercise class or something.
A good stone to work with today is pyrite which enhances our assertiveness and positive thinking.
A good essential oil to use today is bergamot which supports us by allowing us to be emotionally optimistic.
Namaste & until tomorrow!
