Astro Vibrational Tapestry Report ~ Week of November 18-24, 2015
by Starlene Breiter & Nikki Rich
It is a quiet day today. The moon is in Aquarius and we feel in touch with our quirky, eccentric sides.
The only aspect today is a sextile from the moon to Uranus which peaks at 8:55 AM EST. this aspect enhances the Aquarian energy. We feel independent and are not afraid of doing our own thing in our own way.
A good stone to work with today is copper which is an excellent conductor of energy and aids us in being aligned with universal energies,
An essential oil I would recommend is lemon which supports us in being versatile and creative.
For the first bit of the morning the moon is still in Aquarius, she shifts into Pisces at 7:21 AM. Aquarius is the free thinker of the zodiac, the one that is something eccentric or simply unique. You might be feeling these sorts of ways during this early morning.
Before the moon moves signs it makes a square to the sun at 1:27 AM EDT. This aspect does bring some mild tension to the early morning and might have us feeling a little like we are going over things from our past and bringing them to the now. If you find that unhealthy then let it go, and pray to Spirit to let that all go.
The next planetary aspect today is a square from the moon to Mercury which is exact at 3.19 AM EDT. 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.
Immediately after this aspect the moon goes void-of-course which should help dissipate the tension. Under the void-of-course moon we do feel a little aimless but that is okay. Just use this time to complete old tasks and routine tasks, or use it to relax.
The moon then ingresses into Pisces at 7:21 AM EDT so this particular void-of-course moon phase doesn’t last very long. Thank goodness too because we have been having some long void-of-course phases lately! In Pisces the moon is very comfortable, she is intuitive and even psychic. She feels emotions easily. The trouble with the Pisces moon can be that if you are not a clear channel then sometimes the messages come in fuzzy. Staying away from any sort of substance that alters your perception might be a tendency during Pisces moon (that is, if that is your thing) but I believe you can reach Spiritual heights during Pisces moon through spiritual practice, meditation and prayer.
Next the moon squares Saturn at 6:08 PM EDT. This energy lasts all day pretty much and has us feeling like we are disciplined at work and have no issue getting the job done. This is a good time to do some serious thinking too.
The last aspect of the day is when the moon conjuncts to Neptune at 7:26 PM EDT. This monthly aspect has us feeling sensitive and emotional. It can also have us feeling a bit like daydreaming and with not a whole lot of motivation to get things done. If that is how you feel, then do yourself a favor and daydream about some of the things you want to make happen in your life. So when the time comes that you have the motivation to work on things you will have ideas right there on paper in front of you.
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.
A good essential oil for today is sweet orange which is uplifting and helps keep us cheerful.
The moon spends the day in Pisces today. Go with the flow, enjoy the journey, and seek a higher awareness. These are all things that are relevant to the Pisces moon.
Our first aspect today is moon sextile Pluto which peaks at 6:54 AM EST. This influence allows us to get in touch with our deeper feelings in a gentle and supportive manner.
Mercury enters a new sign today. He makes his ingress into Sagittarius at 2:43 PM. Mercury doesn’t particularly enjoy being in Sagittarius but there are some good things about it. Sagittarius is an incredibly honest sign and so Mercury here wants honesty in communication. Try not to be too blunt about it when the honesty comes out!
The Pisces moon opposes Jupiter in Virgo at 5:06 PM. This is a good time for social contacts. Drinks after work wouldn’t be out of line. We enjoy other people and like to be able to laugh with this aspect.
Things are not completely comfortable though since we still have the strongest aspect of the day yet to come. Venus makes a square to Pluto which is exact at 9:02 PM. Even though it is exact at this time it is something we will feel all day. Sometimes feelings of jealousy arise under this influence, or the feeling that you absolutely must talk to the person you are romantically interested in right now. We can be a bit obsessive about love with this so keep that in mind. It is an excellent influence, though, for so sexy, deep love-making. So take advantage of that if you can!
A good stone to work with today is sodalite which is known as a poet’s stone. Perhaps it will help us express ourselves with more grace.
An essential oil to use today is mandarin which is both revitalizing and soothing at the same time. It helps us stay balanced.
The day begins with the moon still in Pisces, so we are still a little dream like and floaty. Not too bad for a Saturday morning though! The moon makes a harmonious trine to the sun at 8:23 AM EDT and we feel some peace and tranquility with others. We even feel this tranquility with ourselves or people of the opposite sex. It kind of continues lasts night Venus square Pluto energy (which by the way is still in effect) and softens the passion a little but it is still nice.
Right after this moon trine sun aspect we are given a short void-of-course moon phase from 8:23 Am until 10:12 AM. This would be a great time to do some self pampering or read a nice book and just relax this morning as the rest of the day does has some action with it!
The moon moves into fiery Aries at 10:12 AM EDT and ignites a spark back into our moods. Where we might have felt floaty and a little chilled out this morning, that picks up because Aries moon is anything but still and boring. Aries moon likes to feel motivated and doing something.
At 12:35 PM EDT the moon makes a trine to Mercury which has us quite persuading towards other. We might even feel a little charismatic too. Kind of like it would be easy to talk a child out of some of their candy! Use this energy to the best of your ability and pursuade what and who counts!
The next aspect is at 7:15 PM EDT when the moon perfects in an opposition to Mars. This brings a lot of energy to the table. The trouble with this can be that cooperation is not really there, and people might tend to be a little hot emotionally. If something feels like this, then let it go and come back to it another time. You will save yourself frustration if you do.
The last aspect of the day is when the moon makes a trine to Saturn which is exact at 9 PM EDT. Under this influence we feel stable and grounded. We can be practical with our emotions and reserved, in a positive way.
Jasper would be an excellent gemstone to work with today. Allowing you to feel grounded in yourself but not so much that you can not enjoy the lively energy of this time.
A good oil for today is cinnamon which helps us feel more powerful. Cinnamon also provides beneficial energy and practicality to help with some of the other energies of the day.
The moon is in Aries today. Aries moon is independent and adventurous. Aries moon is not overly concerned with feelings but at the same time can be rather sensitive, so having an awareness that a gentle approach will help today would be good.
The moon squares Pluto at 9:00 AM EDT. 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.
The sun enters Sagittarius today at 10:25 AM EDT. Happy Sagittarius season! Although this is typically a dark time of year, meaning less daylight, it is also usually a festive time where much of the holiday season occurs. Sagittarius usually does enjoy a good party and is full of optimism, even when things may seem dim.
Our next aspect is an opposition between the moon and Venus which is exact at 11:57 AM EDT. With the moon-Venus opposition often people find that those they deal with are a mirror for their own internal issues. For example, if you are having a hard time opening up to other people you meet people who have a hard time opening up, too. But this is also an aspect to celebrate your feminine side and the Goddess.
The moon conjoins Uranus at 2:16 PM EDT after which she goes void-of-course. The moon-Uranus conjunction is something that makes us feel like being spontaneous. Have plans? Throw them out the window and do something fun instead! Once the moon is void-of-course we should use that time to finish up tasks that have already been started and to take care of routine business.
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.
Lazy Lady Luna in her void-of-course of course phase since yesterday afternoon, finally ingresses into the sign of Taurus at 11:26 PM EDT! The moon feels nice in Taurus, productive, stable and grounded. Under the Taurus moon you might want to contemplate some new ways to grow things, be they things to bring you prosperity, closer to your family or even a garden. Plant some seeds around and watch them start to grow.
Venus then makes an opposition to Uranus at 5:13 PM EDT. This has us feeling really impulsive and our feelings towards things may change quickly. Do some artistic or creative things that inspire you if you can. Some of us may feel anxious about love and nervous too, if you do, try those creative things to alleviate the anxiety.
Later in the evening the moon makes a sextile to Neptune at 10:51 PM EDT. This aspect lulls us into our dreams and helps us merge into a state of peacefulness. This would be an excellent time to meditate or do something creative. You might even notice yourself being more intuitive during this time too.
Amethyst would be a nice gemstone to work with today, bringing inspiration and energy from the Spirit realm.
An essential oil I would recommend to use today is German chamomile which is known for it’s calming effects.
The moon is in Taurus today which is good for keeping us grounded with the big full moon in Gemini happening tomorrow. Moon in Taurus likes to feel secure and comfortable, so try to incorporate things in your day today that help you to feel a sense of security and comfort.
There are a couple of strong aspects today and the first is a sextile from Mars to Saturn which peaks at 12:19 AM EST but should be in effect all day. This is a powerful aspect to help us be productive. You could say that Mars-Saturn is one that is not afraid to do the dirty work. They are motivated and see what needs to be done and so they do it. Use this aspect in your favor to tackle a project you have been wanting to work on for some time. You will be able to get a lot more done than you would expect.
The next aspect is more mild, it is moon trine Pluto and is exact at 9:56 AM. This aids us with motivation and determination, so we can continue to be productive today.
The moon makes a trine aspect to Jupiter at 8:26 PM after which it goes void-of-course. This is a buoyant aspect and we enjoy feeling good under it. It brings optimism and hope. Once the moon goes void-of-course it is best not to begin anything new, so take care of wrapping up things you started previously.
The final aspect is another one that we should feel all day long. Mercury conjoins Saturn which is exact at 11:57 PM. This is a great aspect for problem solving. We can find creative solutions to the challenges we face under this aspect. Sometimes we feel stuck but a part of this process of dealing with obstacles is getting stuck before we can get unstuck. We may not be very talkative with this planetary combination but if you do have something to say it should be important and concise.
A good stone to work with today is honey calcite which helps to balance the chakras. It aids in gently getting in touch with psychic energy while also grounding us.
An essential oil I would recommend using today is bergamot which will helps to uplift our mood and revitalize our spirits.
Namaste & until tomorrow!
