Astro Vibrational Tapestry Report
by Starlene Breiter & Nikki Rich
The moon is in Scorpio and will make a lot of aspects today but they are all soft and supportive. The Scorpio moon is usually a difficult placement but these easy aspects help us out today making it an easier day than it usually is.
We start off with moon sextile Venus at 3:13 AM EDT. Sweet dreams, all, of sugar plum fairies dancing in our heads.
Our next aspect peaks at 8:25 AM and is a trine from the moon to Neptune. We may feel a bit lazy and unmotivated this morning, more interested in day dreaming than in getting things done. We may lose track of time under this influence so if you have a deadline or somewhere to be make sure you are on top of things!
By the late afternoon and early evening we feel a little more motivated. The moon makes a sextile to Mars which peaks at 6:22 PM. If there is something you really want to get done you should have the energy and drive to get it done, whether it is a project or some exercise or making a great dinner from scratch.
The next aspect is moon sextile Pluto which is exact at 7:51 PM. This aspect complements the previous moon-Mars aspect and we feel in step with our inner motivations.
The last aspect today is a sextile from the moon to Jupiter at 8:58 PM. Another soft, supportive aspect that brings optimism to the day. After that last aspect peaks the moon goes void-of-course and we can have a nice, relaxing evening.
An essential oil I would recommend using today is sandalwood which helps us stay grounded and calm.
A stone I would suggest using today is sodalite which helps us connect with our ideals and live up to them.
Thursday October 15, 2015 –
The moon, once again in a long day void-of-course phase ~ all day today! This time she is under the spell of Scorpio, so just try to relax into any emotions that pop up from out of no where and ride the wave. If you can take some time to be contemplative and observant, rather than scrutinizing and becoming emotionally attached to things, this day will flow easier for you.
In the evening time we have a supportive aspect when Mars makes a trine to Pluto. This aspect has been leading up since about October 6th and finally exacts today at 11:36 PM EDT. This aspect stays in affect for a bit of time too, waning down around the 23rd of October. Because of this slower progression of this aspect we might notice it being more of a shift of energies we go through, rather than an event. Trines are always supportive, even between two (to use a Classical Astrology term) “malefics”. Mars and Pluto are both harder planets to work with, and together they are not the easiest energy out there!
BUT the saving grace this time is that they are trine to one another which means that we get to use their extraordinary power and drive to achieve something we want to work on dearly. So clear out the clutter in your life, be that clutter – things, relationships or situations and make some room for the new! The trick with trines is that because they are harmonious and supportive, you have to remind yourself to do the work. Thankfully and hopefully with the energy of these two planets, Mars and Pluto, you will have no problem with that!
Brecciated Jasper would be an excellent gemstone to work with today. This gemstone will help you to harness the power of Mars and Pluto while remaining stable at the same time.
Nag Champa would be a great scent to work with today. You could use the essential oil or even burn incense of Nag Champa. It helps to keep you grounded and also supports your spiritual growth.
Lady moon begins her day in Scorpio but enters Sagittarius early at 5:18 AM EDT. Moon in Sagittarius has a sense of adventure and optimism that is refreshing.
Our first aspect today is moon conjunct Saturn at 10:06 AM. Saturn does make the moon feel more serious and focused. Saturn has the gift of seeing what is truly important and getting rid of the rest, so we can use this aspect to prioritize.
The next aspect peaks at 3:15 PM and it is a sextile from the moon to Mercury. This aspect helps our thoughts and feelings flow together harmoniously. It also helps to give us a sense of humor today.
The moon squares Venus at 7:17 PM. Traditionally this is the type of aspect that might have us eating ice cream for dinner, especially if we are feeling down. But hey, I say there is nothing wrong with ice cream for dinner! This aspect also helps to engage our creative and artistic natures. This is further enhanced but the next aspect which is a square from the moon to Neptune at 7:33 PM. With Venus in Virgo I can imagine us rearranging our decor, even if just slightly, in order to make it feel just right. Another thing I can imagine being done tonight is smudging with sage to clear out any lingering negativity.
Our final aspect of the day is the biggest: Venus opposes Neptune and is exact 10:53 PM. We should be feeling the affects of this all day. There are some good things and bad things about this aspect. First, we can have fantastic visions and if we are artistic we could create some beautiful artwork that is spiritually engaging as well as full of romantic imagination. When I was a kid I had a poster on my wall of a winged unicorn leaping through the air in front of a fairy castle and this is what this aspect reminds me of. Second, this aspect can be difficult because we look at our relationships through rose-colored glasses. We see the highest and the best, we put the object of our fantasy on a pedestal, and this fantasy is incredibly hard for reality to live up to. The best way of handling this type of energy is to use it to engage something that is fantasy. Watch The Princess Bride or another fantasy based romantic comedy. Read a romance or fantasy novel. If you want to be creative you can try writing a romance or fantasy novel. But if you try to make this magic reality based you will feel challenged when the reality isn’t living up to the dream.
An essential oil to try today is lemon which refreshes and uplifts.
A good stone to work with today is blue kyanite which aids in grounding and we can certainly use help with that today.
The moon is still in Sagittarius all day today, so our moods should be fun, light and we might even have an itch to get out into the world. Or even make some plans to do something away from our usual circles that we live in.
The lingering Venus opposite Neptune opposition that we spoke about in yesterday’s Astro Tapestry Report is still with us all day today, in fact it lingers on for the rest of the week. So do something creative with yourself. Also be sure to take off those rose colored glasses that this aspect can be having you wear when it comes it relationship matters.
At 8:20AM EDT the moon makes a square to Mars. This aspect has us feeling impulsive and even possibly a little hot under the collar. The best way to handle this aspect is to do something with the energy you feel. Go for a run, take a bike ride or somehow find a way to let go of that tension.
A little later on the moon make a square to Jupiter at 8:41AM EDT. This has our emotions expanding and may have us feeling a bit on the impractical side of life. The whole day will be a theme of energy and awareness because in the evening time Mars and Jupiter form a conjunction with each other.
Before that happens, in the afternoon the moon trines Uranus at 4:41 PM EDT. This electrifies the moon a bit and makes us feel spontaneous. It may also give an energy to being somewhat original so if you are creative that might be where you put your focus for today.
Finally Mars conjuncts with Jupiter at 6:40PM EDT. This has us wanting to expand ourselves even more, it would be an excellent time to go out and have fun tonight! Mars gives us the energy we need and Jupiter wants to go out of its own inner circle so take some time to do something that you might not normally do in this time. After all it is Saturday night!
A great essential oil to work with today would be Ginger. Ginger helps to invigorate the Mars energy of the day, all while giving the power of Mars the ability to be stable at the same time (something Mars is not particularly known for!)
Garnet would be an excellent gemstone to work with today, as garnet gives stability and also opens doorways to the ancient path. Those doorways are exactly what Jupiter is reaching for, something beyond the known.
We begin the day with the moon in Sagittarius and the first aspect is early. At 4:48 AM EDT the moon makes a sextile to the sun and goes void-of-course right away. This means we should feel pretty good but also feel somewhat aimless, maybe a little lazy, and would prefer to have a quiet Sunday morning enjoying a good book.
The moon enters Capricorn at 2:52 PM and this is like a wake up call reminding us that if we do have things to get done today it’s time to take care of business. The moon in Capricorn would rather work than focus on feelings so projects are a good way to spend this afternoon.
A good essential oil to use today is rose which helps us feel calm and stable.
A good stone to use today is prehnite which helps enhance visualization and meditation.
Today the moon is in Capricorn all day and she makes a bunch of aspects to other planets too! She is a busy lady, but then again Capricorn wouldn’t have it any other way. Under the Capricorn moon we are generally geared more towards working and busying ourselves, so this should be a productive way to start the week off, for most of us!
The first planetary aspect today is a square from the moon to Mercury which is exact at 6:13 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.
Next is a trine from the moon to lovely Venus which is a supportive and harmonious aspect, it perfects at 8:37 AM EDT. You might have an urge this morning to do some beautification on your environment too.
At 3:12 PM EDT the moon conjoins Pluto and the calming energy of the morning has grown into discontent. Moon-Pluto is an aspect that urges us to confront our darkest feelings and this is not an easy process. We are uncomfortable with facing our shadow side but this is what happens under this aspect.
Our next aspect of the day is a trine from the moon to Jupiter that exacts at 5:50 PM EDT. We feel buoyant, we feel elated, we feel generous. These are feelings that we wish he could hold onto, but of course, feelings are by nature changeable, just like the moon.
The last aspect the moon makes is a harmonious trine to Mars. This energy peaks at 7:26 PM EDT today. This energy 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. Just burn some of that energy off. If it is not physical energy you wish to burn off; you may notice yourself feeling quite optimistic and progressive.
You may want to hold onto some Clear Quartz at this time to help you see things clearer.
A good essential oil for today is Roman chamomile which aids us in becoming more peaceful.
The day beings with the moon in Capricorn. This placement makes us feel more comfortable working on practical things instead of dealing with feelings, so use it in your favor to get a job done!
The first aspect today is a square from the moon to Uranus which peaks at 12:25 AM EDT. This is an aspect that makes us feel a little restless so if you are up late you might have trouble falling asleep and if you and asleep you might find yourself waking up.
The sun and moon square each other at 4:31 PM which does bring some mild tension to the day. 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 enters Aquarius at 9:38 PM. The moon placement makes what is going on inside of our own heads more interesting than most other things happening. I always imagine Rodin’s bronze “The Thinker” to have moon in Aquarius. Not that moon in Aquarius is necessarily serious but they is much more going on inside their heads than you might ever realize.
A good stone to work with today is clear quartz which is an amplifier and power stone. It will help bring clarity to any work done today.
An essential oil I would recommend today is grapefruit which is refreshing and helps to uplift.
Namaste & until tomorrow!
