Astro Vibrational Tapestry Report
by Starlene Breiter & Nikki Rich
The moon hangs in the sign of Capricorn all day today. When the moon is in Capricorn, we feel a bit more grounded and ready to take steps in our lives to make things work better for us. Capricorn moon is often times concerned with business and work, so if you have some work to be done – today is the time to get to it!
The first energy of today is a vibration between the moon sextile Neptune. This energy is a short but powerful energy that peaks at 6:49AM EDT. This vibration has us tapping into our creative side. You may want to get out the Sodalite to help inspire your creative side, or sleep with it for intuitive dreams if this is your sleeping time. It would be a great time to do some meditation and even a good time to schedule a reading. During this vibration the veils of intuition are lowered at this time. This energy has those that can tap in easily, highly sensitive.
In the afternoon moon makes a conjunction with Pluto. This conjunction peaks at 2:23PM EDT. This vibration is our monthly time to dig within the depths of our emotions and peer what is there. We should be able to do this, so we can examine and release that which no longer serves us. Black Onyx and Clear Quartz are both great gemstones to help dig into those dark corners and shine your light into them to release and let go. This action makes space for new things to fill that void within us, so do some digging in this time and allow yourself to see what is deep within.
Vetiver is an excellent essential oil to work with today. It will help you remain grounded and keep your energy from being scattered.
The day starts out with a little tension which grows throughout the morning. The moon squares Uranus in the early morning hours (1:51 AM EDT) and then opposes Mars at 7:24 AM. This transition of light is a tense one and we may feel impatient and even a little angry. The best advice I can give for this series of aspects is to think before you act rashly because we may do something that we regret if you don’t think things through.
Things smooth out a little bit with the moon makes a sextile to Saturn and goes void-of-course at 2:50 PM. We feel more reasonable and less rash. We are more patient and less angry. We are more grounded and less unpredictable.
The void-of-course moon ends at 5:40 PM when the moon enters Aquarius. We are ramping up to the moon moon in Aquarius tomorrow and this does shift the mood quite a bit. The moon in Aquarius likes things to be unusual, eccentric and clever. Time to enjoy something out of the ordinary! Even though the full moon happens tomorrow morning we can already feel it building today. This builds tension but also excitement. Try to have fun and enjoy yourself instead of stressing about things! Since Aquarius prefers to keep their emotions at a distance you should be able to push aside the tension and embrace the zaniness instead!
Today is actually my wedding anniversary. Does the astrology worry me? Not at all. We will have a very active day (moon square Uranus and opposite Mars) and then we will shift gears into a rare opportunity for a date night and to do something unusual for us (walk on the beach, an evening spent dancing, enjoying our celebration). The full moon means our emotions will be full, we will have a lot of big love for each other on this night.
Today brings with it the full moon in Aquarius, which peaks in her fullness at 6:43AM EDT. The moon carries with her the mood of the day. Think of the sign she is in as the flavor she is spreading for us for the day. In the sign of Aquarius the moon is not necessarily the easiest for the moon to be in. The moon carries with her our emotions, moods and feelings. While the energy of Aquarius is a bit detached and rational. These two seems to be a bit on the opposite sides of the spectrum from one another. So if you feel your emotions are a bit torn today this is why.
The energy of the moon in Aquarius is not necessarily negative but it has a vibe of being quirky and airy. So try not to put too much pressure on your emotions today. Keep things lighter and more carefree and things should be a bit smoother today. Since the moon is full today, this marks the half-way cycle of the moon and is a time of culmination and maturity.
As the morning moves on Venus retrogrades into the sign of Leo. Venus retrograde, in the sign of Leo is giving us a bit of a microscope to look inside of our hearts and see what is lingering there. Between the energy of the full moon amplifying our emotions and the planet of our love (Venus) opening our hearts; we are given an opportunity to feel emotions on a deep level. During this retrograde phase of Venus into the later degrees of Leo, turn your attention to what you love and feel in your heart. Do not be afraid to seek and explore that which is inside of your heart.
The last aspect is between the moon and Mercury opposing each other. This peaks at 10:26PM EDT. This energy has us putting all the details of our lives in some order. The moon and Mercury is good at filing, organizing and straightening things out. If you notice some interesting dreams (and this is your sleeping time) be sure to journal them down when you wake up!
Rainbow moonstone is an excellent gemstone to wear or hold today. It will connect you with the energies and magic of the full moon.
Clary Sage is a great essential oil to use today as it will help to open your perspective and bring new possibilities to your awareness.
For the first half of the day, the moon is in the sign of quirky and intellectual Aquarius. Enjoy doing things that are off the beaten path in this time. Mother moon shifts gears and ingresses into the sign of Pisces after a short void of course phase in the evening. The void of course phase is from 6:02PM EDT until 6:36PM EDt when she moves into Pisces.
When the moon is in Pisces, she is at her dreamiest and she loves to connect with the energies of the unknown. We may notice that we want to slip into a dreamlike, or trance like state under the Pisces moon too. Some things to do that are healthy are meditating, praying and sleeping. Some things to be mindful of are slipping into illusions or delusions of drugs or alcohol during this transit.
The first aspect in the morning is with the moon sextile Uranus. This peaks at 3:11AM EDT and lasts throughout the day. This vibration has us feeling original and inventive. If you are creative then now is a great time to do something with that creativity.
You might want to grab ahold of some Selenite or Clear Quartz at this time to help channel the high vibration of these two planets.
Next we have an opposition between the moon and Jupiter. This energy peaks at 3:16PM EDT. The connection between the moon and Jupiter can have us feeling expansive and extravagant. You may enjoy spending this time with loved ones. This is a good energy for some enjoyment, but be wary of being a bit lazy. Be sure get out there and do something enjoyable!
You might want to hold onto some Botswana Agate or another form of Agate during this time. So you are able to have some fun, but not go crazy at the same time!
The next aspect we are given is when the moon squares Saturn. This energy peaks at 3:49PM EDT and will last throughout the day. This vibration has us feeling disciplined and serious. It would be a great time to get some work done, unless of course this is your sleep time. It would also be an easy time to start to put some form to some of those projects you want to get started on.
You may want to hold onto some Tigers Eye during this time. If you do plan on doing some work, or Fluorite if you want to focus your attention on something.
The last aspect we are given an energy between the moon opposite Venus, this energy peaks at 6:02PM EDT. We may be feeling like being a little excessive at this time, like over indulging ourselves in something. Use caution and enjoy a little indulgence while still having fun. Just remember not to go overboard with it too! There is nothing wrong with a treat of some kind here or there, just remind yourself it’s a treat and should be treated as such! Rhodonite would be an excellent gemstone to work with during this time. Rhodonite will allow you to enjoy the sweetness of life, while still remaining grounded.
Sandalwood is an excellent essential oil to work with today. It will help you feel grounded and centered while remaining inspired and in alignment with what you know to be true.
Saturn turns direct today after being in a retrograde since March this year. We hear a lot about Mercury retrograde phases throughout the year. The reason that happens, is because Mercury is the closest planet to the sun. Which has Mercury making a retrograde every few months for 3 weeks each time. In other words Mercury moves fast. Saturn, and the other outer planets move rather slowly. Their retrograde phases only happen once a year and last for months. So Saturn retrograde is more like a season of life than a bunch of experiences combined together.
The season of Saturn retrograde helps to slow down the typical rate of activity. This allows us to develop some better strategies in our life. It can also help us to become a bit more structured and responsible. As you can imagine this is not the easiest time-period for some of us that are always on overdrive. BUT it helps one to create healthy boundaries and be a bit more on the realistic side. So I hope that over the last few months, you have taken the time to do some of this inner structure for yourself. If not, then reflect upon the last couple of months and start to think about it from this perspective now.
Saturn turning direct gives us the chance to pick up the speed of life. Implementing some of the lessons learned over the last few months in an active way in our life. It is never too late and Saturn will wait. If Saturn is anything, it is slow and patient… So do the work and make this forward moving direction of Saturn work for you. This is not usually an event that takes place, but a cycle. So paying attention to the planets in this way is sometimes more of a hindsight is 20/20 thing. If you start to watch the planets retrograde phases. You can look at the Saturn seasons of your life, you will likely see what I am referring to here. Saturn gives us the gift of contemplation, so take some time to do just that – contemplate.
The next energy presented to us is with the moon conjunct Neptune. This transit peaks at 9:28AM EDT. This is the sweet and idealistic day of the month. The day where we may not feel like doing a whole lot of physical things. We might just want to sort of float around in our chilled out, or dream-like state. We may also enjoy reading a spiritual or fantasy book. This is a great time to spend simply enjoying the flow of life.
At 10:50AM EDT Mercury makes a trine to Uranus. This is a great time to communicate in some inspired way. It would also be an excellent time to make new friends and connect with others in a social way.
The final aspect of the day when the moon is sextile Pluto. This aspect peaks at 4:40PM EDT. This energy has us receiving some enlightening information from the depths of our being. This information may even be something we contemplated before and just never put much thought into it. – Well now we will. If you use this energy correctly and allow those emotions to come out today. You will likely find some happiness in there too.
Holding onto some Scolecite would be helpful today. This will allow you to see the bigger picture and open your inner self more.
Ylang-Ylang is a great essential oil to work with today. It will allow your mind to be open and able to listen to your inner voice on a deeper level.
Since mid July Jupiter and Saturn have been making a square to one another. This square finally comes to make an exact point today at 6:36AM EDT. Venus also gets in the mix with a conjunction to Jupiter that exacts on Tuesday evening.
A pattern like this that connects an inner planet (Venus) with a couple of the outer planets (Jupiter & Saturn) gives us a certain feeling or vibe to that time-period. I say time-period because usually they last more than a couple hours or a part of a day. This pattern that includes Venus will be several days long.
Combining these three planets give us some tension, real-ness and inflation to the things that we love. We might find ourselves being contemplative about those things too. These things can be expressed through us in a positive or negative way. Try to of course be positive, but if you are feeling the need to get some of the negative emotions out.
Let the emotions out, so you can move on.
The trick with letting out negative emotions is to remember not to “live” in them. As Venus moves closer to her exact conjunction and therefore Square to Saturn tomorrow, this might become more and more obvious. Try to focus on the positive energies of Venus and Jupiter; while embracing the sometimes very blunt reality of Saturn.
Traveling along in the afternoon, the moon makes a harmonious trine to Mars. This energy peaks at 10:53AM EDT. The energy between these two planets brings some fire to the day. It has us feeling loads of vigor, we might consider going for a run, or swim or whatever it is that we like to do with ourselves to burn some of that energy off this afternoon. If it is not physical energy you wish to burn off you may notice yourself feeling quite optimistic and progressive.
In the afternoon the moon greets Saturn with a harmonious trine. This energy lasts most of the day today and peaks at 4:35PM EDT. This vibration reminds us that practice and perseverance is how we get through things. This vibration with the moon and Saturn are helping us to work with the above mentioned energy! We may accomplish many things today. This will happen through remembering to have that sweet patience with ourselves and projects.
Today you may want to work with some Carnelian or another Agate at this time to help you channel your own personal energy.
Working with Patchouli will also help us to be grounded and connected to our core.
The moon is in sensitive and compassionate Pisces for the first half of today. Then she shifts gears and moves into the sign is Aries where she feels more like pushing forward and finding her own path. You too may feel these things as the moon is our emotional guide. Understanding the movement the moon makes, helps us make the best of the mood and flow of the day.
At 3:23PM EDT the moon makes an harmonious trine to the sun which smooths out the energy of the day. We feel good. We feel in sync. There is a spring in our step.
Venus makes her exact conjunction to Jupiter today at 5:47PM EDT. I talked about this in yesterday’s Astro Tapestry. This connection has created an pattern of energy between Venus, Jupiter and Saturn. This pattern has us feeling inflated emotionally. Although that sounds lovely, who doesn’t want to have nice high emotions. We have it colored with a realistic and sensible feel to it as well.
The last aspect today is a square from the moon to Pluto in at 5:50PM EDT. This aspect may have us obsessing over our relationships a bit today, thinking things like:
“Why hasn’t he/she called/texted yet today?”
Whether we are in a relationship or not this aspect does give us some feelings of frustration. There are deeper things happening that we just can’t put our finger on to sort them out. Kind of like background noise that grates on your nerves.
Smoky Quartz is a great gemstone to work with today, it will help us be balanced with our energies through the fun and the slightly obsessive and compulsive feelings we might have later in the day.
Working with Lemon essential oil will life our moon and bring some cheerfulness to the mix.
Namaste & until tomorrow!
