Astro Vibrational Tapestry Report
by Starlene Breiter & Nikki Rich
There is a big shift today! Venus makes her escape from Scorpio into Sagittarius and it is like a breath of fresh air! The ingress occurs at 2:16 AM eastern time. Nothing against Scorpio personally but it is too intense for Venus, she likes soft colors and soft edges whereas Scorpio is all black and red and hard edges. But Sagittarius is easier for Venus to be in, she likes to socialize and so does Sag! This should ease up some of the tension you may have been feeling in your relationships lately.
The moon in Virgo opposed Neptune in Pisces at 4:39 AM. This is a good aspect for sleeping and dreaming so hopefully you can do doing some of that while this minor aspect is occurring.
The sun and moon make a trine to each other which perfects at 6:29 AM. This is a generally harmonious aspect which helps us feel “in the flow”. It’s nice to be in the flow!
The moon in Virgo squares Saturn in Sagittarius which is exact at 11:33 AM. The lunar aspects are mild but this one does bring a little bit of tension. We may feel a little blocked or frustrated but it should not be anything to really worry about in the big picture.
There is a trine aspect from the moon to Pluto which peaks at 7:32 PM. Again a minor aspect but this one is harmonious with our deeper nature. We are at peace with our feelings, even if those feelings are not what we wish they might be, Emotions are complex and learning to accept how we feel without fighting them is an art that sometimes we grasp and other times it slips through our fingers. At this moment we grasp the art.
A great stone to work with is aragonite which helps to keep us grounded and connected to the earth,
An essential oil to try today is frankincense which helps us rise about everyday concerns and transcend into a spiritual perspective.
Welcome to the last day of the year. The energy for today is analytical and critical as the moon hangs in Virgo all day today. Try to remind yourself that this is the last day of 2015 and tomorrow meets us with a new day in a brand new year so lighten up if you can!
Lady luna greets Jupiter at 11:50AM EST bringing some lightness to the day. Jupiter inflates our mood and emotions with it conjoined with the moon, so do your best to feel jovial and happy as we ring in the new year this evening. The Virgo moon, and last day of the year is an excellent time to clean out your closet and dust off those shelves so if you feel inspired to do some shifting of energy this is an excellent day to do so. Most of all the moon-Jupiter combination is asking for us to be grounded and centered within ourselves.
A good essential oil to work with today is sandalwood which helps to ground us.
A good stone to work with today is smoky quartz which also helps with stability.
The New Year begins with the trine from the moon to Mercury which is exact at 812:33 AM EST. this is a great energy for socialization, and communication with others. Enjoy ringing in the new year and having fun connecting with others today. Right after this, the moon makes it void-of-course phase, so it might feel like woo hoo everything is excitement – now lets chill out and go to bed!
The moon swiftly shifts into the sign of Libra at 1:41 AM EST. This has us feeling a bit more chatty throughout the day and like we should have some fun with our partners and family members alike. Moon in Libra also has us being creative and social so expect a weekend full of that – what a nice way to start the year!
Next the moon comes to a sextile to Venus at 7:05AM EST. This has is feeling especially creative and happy to be hanging out with our family and loved ones at home. Enjoy the first day of the year and have some fun spending time with your tribe.
Mercury then enters int Aquarius at 9:20 PM EST. This is where Mercury hangs until it is in its retrograde phase and turns back into Capricorn on the 8th. While Mercury is in Aquarius we feel social, we think outside of the box and sometimes we can even be a bit rebellious! Since this placement of Mercury in Aquarius does not last very long before it retrogrades into the sign of Capricorn, this will be a shorter lived feeling but no worries because Mercury does move along back into Aquarius in mid February.
A good stone to work with today is ruby which aids in enhancing personal vitality and energy levels.
An essential oil to use today is juniper which increases our vitality as well.
The moon is in Libra all day today. This has our focus on the lovely things in life. Libra loves harmony, beauty and fairness. Therefore if things feel in disharmony or not fair, you might expect some difficulty. If things are flowing easier than today should be easy-going. If you feel like you are fighting against the current, then relax a little and try to go with the flow and watch as things get simpler.
The first aspect we have is when the sun and moon square each other at 12:30 AM EST. This aspect brings what I call “mild tension” but nothing that is overwhelming. Like we realize we want two opposing things and must choose. I don’t expect the choice today to be major but we are still at odds with ourselves on some minor level.
Next lady luna squares Pluto at 8:23 AM EST. Emotions may arise that we are not completely comfortable with. If that happens take the time to explore them so we can clear out any negativity we may be feeling instead of keeping those feelings deep inside.
Last the moon and Uranus come to an exact opposition at 11:23 AM EST. This has us feeling a little restless towards other people. We might even notices ourselves being spontaneous and involving others in that spontaneity. Try to just keep a level head and not let your emotions get away with itself and this can be an inspirations driving energy.
The moon then moves into an approximately 16 hour void-of-course phase. You know those kind of Saturday nights that you like to chill out in your fuzzy socks and watch marathons on TV, this is a great time for one of those days! If you are feeling so inclined, you might meditate, read a book or even go to be early. Any and all of those things are appropriate for this time period.
A good essential oil for the energies today is peppermint which gives us pep but also keeps up focused.
A stone to work with today is clear quartz which amplifies our energy. Since our energy should be so positive today this would be a great choice.
Mars enters into the sign of Scorpio at 9:32 AM EST today. He hangs in Scorpio until March and then because of his retrograde phase, later in the year renters Scorpio for a visit. Mars is happy in Scorpio, in Classical Astrology, Mars rules over Scorpio. So think about things you give your energy to, expect yourself to be quite passionate and driven with those things. Mars governs over our energy, so our energy may take on an element of passion, jealousy, joy, severity and even possible obsession. This is a great time to do some investigation and “dig” deep within ourselves or others. Just try to remember that these tendencies can sometimes be taken too far and allow yourself to let the passion flow without the compulsive tendencies.
The moon moves into the sign of Scorpio today at 2:36 PM, which also gives us some more of those deep and passionate energies as spoke about above. Only the moon hangs in one sign for less than three days, so she will mosey on into Sagittarius on Thursday. Because both the moon and Mars are in this intense sign, and the moon is not particularly happy in Scorpio, you might notice some deep festering things coming to the surface. If you handle them with as much grace as possible, then you can curtail yourself from lashing out in anger or frustration. Try doing something with yourself that allows you to release some of that pent up energy, go for a run, take a boxing class or blow up your neighbors house. Just kidding on that last one, tehehe! Whatever you do, just do it with passion AND love!
The moon and Mars conjunct together at 2:51 PM EST. This might feel like the most intense part of the day today, so this would be a great time to spend that energy I was talking about above. If you are restless do something constructive with yourself. Doing something that will help you channel some of the energy you have, is apropos.
The last planetary aspect today is a square from the moon to Mercury which is exact at 4:12 PM EST. Under this aspect we often feel that our mind and our emotions are in different places and it becomes a challenge to get them on the same page. But this is not an uncommon feeling and it too shall pass.
A great gemstone to work with today would be Carnelian Agate, it will help to calm the frustrations that might pop up and keep you grounded and centered.
An essential oil I would recommend using today is lavender which is calming. We can use something calming since today can be a bit challenging at times.
The moon spends the day in Scorpio. The moon is considered “in detriment” in the sign of Scorpio, and what this means is that our sweet, emotional moon does not feel comfortable with the deep intensity of Scorpio, This is a subtle feeling, this discomfort, but it is there. I often find people born with the moon in Scorpio have a very hard time with their willpower … their strong desires seem to rule them on some level. So often under the transit moon in Scorpio we can feel our desires more strongly than at other times.
The moon makes a trine to Neptune which is exact at 5:56 AM eastern time. Moon-Neptune is great for sleeping and dreaming. It is great for spiritual work such as meditation and prayer.
The sun and moon make a sextile which peaks at 6:43 PM. This is a subtly harmonious aspect and we should have a general good mood as a result.
A sextile aspect between the moon and Pluto is exact at 8:59 PM. This is another subtly harmonious aspect but it does tend to bring up deeper emotions as well. It does add to an overall good day!
A stone I would suggest working with today is amber which helps the body to heal with it’s sunny, bright energy.
An essential oil to try today is sweet orange with also has that sunny, bright energy that helps us feel more optimistic. Sometimes under the Scorpio moon we do need to deliberately engage optimism as the tendency here is to look at the darker side of things.
The beginning of the day has Mercury squaring Mars. This energy, although it lasts all day it comes to an exact square at 7AM EST. This can have us feeling a little tense in our communication. Try to curtail any possible disagreements or be calm while others might be bickering or arguing. This aspect reminds me that in an argument or disagreement – someone has to be the sane one. Let that person be you!
Mercury then goes into his retrograde phase at 8AM. This is a great time for us to work on old projects. Double check things, such as emails and the oil in your car. It is also a good time to call and speak to people instead of texting and emailing because maybe the electronic messages get lost. You might even think about calling a second time to confirm you are both on the same page, if you have some important issues to take care of. Despite popular belief and pop-astrology Mercury in retrograde is not the apocalypse of the electronic world and we shouldn’t stop doing EVERYTHING. Just double check things and have a sense of humor when things do get a little wacky and you will be just fine.
Venus then makes a square to Neptune which exacts at 9:33AM EST and lasts all day. This can have us feeling a little bit like the things we want to have in our lives are not matching what we are really doing. If so, this is a good time to take inventory of what we are doing and where (in an idealistic sort of way) want to be doing. Having these two planets in a somewhat stressful space with each other is only temporary so don’t get too flustered as this feeling of being off center from our heart and our ideals will soon pass. Use this energy wisely though and you will be able to see where you can make your heart and ideals come together in perfect harmony down the road though!
The moon then makes a soft sextile to Jupiter at 12:47 PM EST. This has our moods and emotions large. It is actually a cheerful time so enjoy the short but sweet transit of these two planets.
Lastly the sun makes a conjunction with Pluto at 10:28 PM EST. This can have us feeling a bit compulsive and obsessive. Don’t go climbing a tree to peak in the windows of your love. That is just weird. But do call and say hi if you feel so inclined to be kind, just remember Pluto gives off a very compulsive energy so let those compulsive tendencies be kind and good and not freaky and you will slide through this one with ease.
Cleansed Malachite is an excellent gemstone for you to hold onto, wear or keep around you today. I say cleansed because you should energetically cleanse it before working with it, as it does hold onto negative energy. So smudge it, reiki it, run it under clear water for a few seconds, or even put it on some selenite for an hour before you work with it. It will pull any negativity out of you or the atmosphere. Just remember to cleanse it again in the evening or as often as it feels like it needs it.
A good essential oil to work with today is sandalwood which helps to ground us.
Namaste & until tomorrow!
