Astro Vibrational Tapestry Report
by Starlene Breiter & Nikki Rich
Just for starters – Nikki is joining me in writing some of the Astro Tapestries. So enjoy reading the thoughts of us both on the transiting planets. Being that every astrologer has a different spin on the vibrations in the cosmos it will be nice to hear other opinions. Welcome aboard Nikki!
Mother moon hangs in her home zodiac sign of Cancer all day today. You can expect to feel nurturing and connected to your family today. It would be nice to hold on to Moonstone during the day today. The moon shifts around and connects with other planets today, including a new moon. Often one wants to enjoy time with loved ones during this time of the moon moving through the sign of Cancer. Enjoy feeling your emotions, connecting with the feminine and spending time in wherever you call “home”.
This day starts off in the early morning time with the moon and Mercury conjunct in the sky at 1:11AM EST. This vibration in the tapestry of energy will give some movement towards ideas that we may have in our hearts and spirit. You may want to work with some Jasper in this time. Jasper will bring out new ideas, and ground you just enough to take action on them but not so much you feel heavy. You may notice you get excited about sharing some of those ideas or communicating them with others at this time. Just remember to write them down and take some action on them.
The next energy brings us a vibration between the moon conjunct Mars, this peaks at 3:50AM EST. This energy gives us some desire to finish the task(s) at hand and lends towards a vibrant, active time. Red Coral or even Carnelian Agate would both be excellent gemstones to work with in helping you channel this energy nicely. If you can, go do something physical like walk, or swim, or workout this morning – your body will love you for it.
The moon then is opposite Pluto at 4:10AM EST. This energy pattern has us reaching in the depths and seeing what is there. This energy has us feeling like reaching deep down in our souls and digging for what is there. This action has us purging and releasing any pent up energy onto the Universe.
As the morning unfolds the next aspect that begins to peak in energy on us, climaxes this morning. This aspect is when Mars is opposite Pluto and is exact at 10:12AM EST. This energy gives us a bit of a restlessness feeling and strong compulsion to getting things accomplished. If you are not sure what you need to focus on, you might get try to sort that out and get moving. Today is a great day to work with Brecciated Jasper to help you channel your energy and get moving in a stable and calm force.
The next pattern we have is when the moon squares Uranus it peaks at 4:10PM EST. You might notice a little bit more restlessness and if so, channel that energy into something positive. Holding on to some Blue Lace Agate over this time may be useful for you during the connection the moon and Uranus make, couples with some Black Tourmaline to help keep the balance. If this is your resting time and you can’t feel a little anxious or excitable – try doing something that completely inspires you and just go with the flow of this time.
Mercury makes an opposition to Pluto at 7:40PM EST and as you can see (if you made it reading through the day today) Pluto has been a busy planet! The energy of Mercury and Pluto in an opposition to themselves can cause some emotional outbursts or quarrels. Try to counteract those thoughts from exploding outward by channeling them in a healthy direction. Fluorite may be an excellent stone for helping you do that.
Finally the New Moon happens at 9:24PM EST today. This is when the moon and sun are conjunct in the sky. The new moon is a great time for you to start to do some intention setting with yourself. Being that the new moon is conjunct in the sign of Cancer, You may be lead to the Cancerian things such as connections to your family, your home and embodying the energies of the Goddess. You may want to hold onto some Moonstone at this time to connect with the energies of the moon deeper.
A good essential oil for today is Frankincense which elevates us and connects us to spiritual energy while also grounding and comforting us. This helps soothe the tense energies of the day and transform them into something higher.
The first energy we are given is early in the morning at 12:14AM EST with Mercury conjunct Mars. This conjunction happens in the sign of Cancer where neither of the planets are particularly happy. This can lend towards some tense conversations or bickering. So if you are feeling a twinge moody the night before, or tonight or tomorrow. Practice holding your tongue and thinking before you speak. Jasper of any kind will help you with this practice.
The moon does a shorter Void of Course phase today from 7:24AM EST until 10:15AM EST when she ingresses into Leo. During the Void of Course phase, take some time to relax, meditate, practice Reiki or go outside in the garden and be in the moment. The VOC moon reminds us, we all need that down to earth sort of “breaks” in life. If we chose to push through this time and keep doing the status quo, you may notice it just feeling like drudgery or difficult to focus. If you must do something because it is your work time, try to think of creative ways to spend your time during a Void of Course phase.
The early evening greets us with a vibration between the moon trine Saturn. This energy peaks at 10:15AM EST today. This vibration reminds us that practice and perseverance is how we get through things. Onyx and Basalt are great gemstones to work with in helping you keep the stamina of this energy flowing nicely. We may accomplish many things today through remembering to have that sweet patience with ourselves and projects.
Today the moon in Leo and it is a very easy day. The moon in Leo is warm, fun-loving and loves to be creative. Try to make sure you do something to enjoy yourself today! Since the moon is not making any aspects it is like a free day! The next aspect the moon makes is to Uranus on Saturday morning (EDT) so freedom is the theme today! Feel free to express yourself through personal creativity, whether that means art, music, dance or your own personal style.
Since Friday is the the day of Venus and Leo has a romantic side it is a good day for a date night! Let your creativity show and do something special for yourself or your loved one. If you don’t have a date don’t worry and romance yourself instead!
A good stone to work with today is pyrite which helps inspire creativity.
A good essential oil for today is sweet orange and the uplifting citrus notes help to lighten our hearts and spirits.
Saturday July 18, 2015 –
The moon starts off in Leo today and the first aspect it makes is a trine to Uranus at 1:55 AM EDT. The creative Leo moon wants to show some individuality and this is a natural fit. If you are trying to sleep I would not be surprised if you had some vivid dreams or woke up and had trouble getting back to sleep since Uranus electrifies our thoughts. Either way we should wake up feeling energized today!
At 10:50 AM EDT the Leo moon conjoins Jupiter which gives us a great feeling of buoyancy, we just should be careful not to overeat! It would be very easy to have a Saturday barbecue and eat all of the food today! Spend time socializing because the Leo moon touching Jupiter enjoys a good party!
The moon goes void of course after it makes a square to Saturn at 5:41 pm EDT. As the square to Saturn grows we feel a growing tension. There may be an argument with an authority figure today, or even with the authority within ourselves. But we may feel like the fun is over and a bit directionless under that void of course moon.
At 6:38 PM EDT lovely Venus enters Virgo where she will stay for a short time before going retrograde back into Leo. Venus in Virgo is known to be a bit critical and precise so be gentle with yourself and your loved ones and try not to judge. Venus in Virgo also gives us great discernment so it is a great time to appreciate fine art or to do creative tasks requiring precision.
The moon follows Venus into Virgo at 8:47 pm EDT which may have us already thinking about our to do list for tomorrow! If it is going to be clear tonight where you are this would be a good night for stargazing and for looking at constellations. Since the new moon was just a couple of days ago it should be a dark sky which is the best for stargazing and the Virgo moon enjoys identifying and classifying stars and constellations which allows Virgo to focus on details even in the vastness of space.
The last aspect of the day has Mercury squaring Uranus at 9:07 pm EDT. This is a recipe for a crazy night where we can have some odd run-ins and interesting conversations. Some of the conversations can be surprising and contain significant messages so pay attention! Some of these messages may come in other ways as through dreams or strong intuition. The other thing that can happen with this aspect is that there is so much talking and very little listening! Like we are all running each other over with our words. So try to be that unusual character who actually listens instead of competing in the battle of words tonight!
A good stone to work with today is smoky quartz which helps to ground us when we feel like we are losing our earth connection (which can very well happen today with some of these aspects).
A good essential oil for today is peppermint which helps stimulate us into a place of clarity and helps us feel refreshed on an emotional level.
The moon is in Virgo all day today, giving some of us that extra kick to organize and clean house! Being that this is a weekend day, it might be a good idea to take a step back from your environment and see what things need to be dusted and rearranged. Then take some time to do it. Turn on some music and enjoy making your space pleasant and full of nice energy.
The moon makes an opposition to Neptune at 3:43PM EDT. This vibration has contemplating our highest ideals within our hearts. This energy is somewhat floaty and can be a little impractical, but it will connect us with our hearts. Take some time under this spell and see how you want to connect with your inner most dreams.
It would be good to work with Amethyst during this time to help you connect and open your heart chakra. Amethyst will allow energy from your spirit to come forward and open up your heart.
The moon spends another day in discerning Virgo! She makes a nice trine to Pluto in Capricorn at 12:44 AM EDT which brings even more focus to our work.
The next aspect is at 7:30 AM EDT when the Virgo moon makes a sextile to Mars. The harmonious transition of light from Pluto to Mars today makes it possible for us to take action on our deepest feelings, and since the moon is in Virgo this involves tangible action. This is a beautiful chance for you to take a real step toward creating the reality you desire. A great day for manifestation work!
The final aspect today is a sextile from the moon to Mercury in Cancer. These two are in mutual reception and we are able to discuss our feelings with an ease that is rare for the Virgo/Cancer combination. Often with these two signs we feel a little cranky but in this case there should nbe a little more understanding.
A good stone to work with today is clear quartz which helps to amplify our power as we work on manifesting our desires.
A good essential oil for today is grapefruit which uplifts us and gives a sense of freedom. We feel that anything is possible. Again it is a great day for manifestation work and this can help. Dream big!
In the early morning we are given a sweet energy between the moon in Virgo sextile the sun in Cancer. This energy peaks at 6:01AM EST. This energy has a harmony between the masculine and feminine part to our selves, think of the yin-yang and how each side is balanced in perfection of the other. This may be a nice time for you to hold on to some Sodalite or sleep with it under your pillow. You may also notice harmony between male and females or those of the opposite sex.
Next we are given a sextile between the moon in Virgo sextile to Saturn in Scorpio. This energy begins to effect us a little after midnight EST on Tuesday evening. Wit this transit we are given an opportunity that makes it fairly easy for us to help others. It would be great to work with Moonstone and Tigers eye at this time. These stone will help us to put some action behind the structure we feel within our own worlds. You may be gifted with some insight into how you can do this restructuring yourself; so give it some thought. Don’t forget to take some notes if necessary!
The moon then shifts into her Void of Course phase from 6:07AM until she moves into the sign of Libra at 9:23AM EST. The Void of Course Moon is always a great time to do some spiritual work on yourself. If you practice yoga, or spiritual dance or even meditation. This is a great time to do that, and a good day for naps too! Holding onto Clear Quartz under the Void of Course moon is perfect for one wanting to just have clarity. Just remember, as you seek the clarity to be in a space of peace and calmness.
Lady moon moves into the zodiac sign of Libra at 9:23AM EST today. This placement of the moon is where we want to connect with our partnerships and really enjoy them. We may feel like connecting with loved ones and having some fun too. So enjoy the lighter energies of the Libra moon over the next couple of days. Holding onto some Pink Opal would be a great way to explore the energies of the Libra moon.
The last energy we are given is between the sun in Cancer trine to Saturn in Scorpio, this energy peaks at 7:07AM. This energy gives us the strength and ability to become our own personal teacher. This Sun, Saturn combination is harmonious and will help us to take some personal power and then put some stability and force behind them.
Namaste & until tomorrow!
