Introduction

 

    Welcome to your lunar return and monthly cycle outlook. ItÕs a window on personal developments and opportunities, and a tool to get more effectively tuned in to your important monthly rhythms, and to some longer-range ones as well. HereÕs an overview of how it works and how to use it:

There are three primary cosmic rhythms that most affect individual life and destiny:
    
    1. The daily wake/sleep cycle, driven by EarthÕs rotationÉ
    
    2. The yearly cycle of the seasons, determined by EarthÕs orbit around the Sun, andÉ
    
    3. The monthly cycle of lunar rhythms that pulse and accentuate our schedules of work and play, driven by the MoonÕs passage around Earth.

    Of these, the most complex and yet easiest to track and use as a daily guide is the MoonÕs. As we go through its 27 1/2 day period, it paints a rhythmic kaleidoscope of the ups and downs of the individual segments of our lives, including emotional highs and lows, energy peaks and troughs, financial crests and valleys, together with alternating periods of mental focus, elation/depression, sexual arousal, career accomplishment, social standing, popularity, partnership success, health, and creativity. Most of what we consider to be the general Òups and downsÓ of daily life are simply our individual personal areas of sensitivity being pumped by the Moon in a monthly rhythm that is unique to each one of us.

Repeating Cycles: The Monthly Ride

    Individually, itÕs conveniently predictable, as each cycle repeats in the same order each month, though on slightly different days, and if you know when your peak cycles are coming, you can plan for it and ride them like the waves they are as far as they will take you. And, when the wave is past, you can rest and avoid fighting the tide as it goes out, until the next one comes along to pick you up. Just check your calendar, wait for the incoming wave/tide, and then ride – thatÕs all it takes.

    Astrologically, these waves coincide with when the Moon passes over your individual birth planets and houses once each month, giving the areas of life concerning each a temporary boost, then bottoming out two weeks later. Keep an eye on it and follow its rolling repeats for just a few months, and youÕll always want to stay consciously plugged into it. It becomes like pumping a swing in the playground, you just go higher and higher with only a little timed input on your part.

The Changing Monthly Overview – the Lunar Return

    on the spot where you are (and where you are then is important, too), called a lunar return. By looking at that chart, you get an idea of the style, priorities, and general feeling of the month to come, until it expires and the next monthÕs lunar return supplants it. Underneath, like the humming engine under an automobile hood, the same rolling lunar beat goes on, but with a new style and body design to show off each time – one month a sedan, the next an SUV, then a utility wagon, then a sports car, maybe even a racing vehicle, depending on whatÕs uniquely happening in the sky, never the same twice.

Change Your Month, Change Yourself

    ItÕs always a treat to see what youÕre going to be riding in next month, but unlike most other astrological arenas where youÕre stuck with what you get, if you donÕt like the model, you can change it, simply by going someplace else for the day of your lunar return (solar returns, or yearly birthday charts, work the same way). Traveling even just a hundred miles or so, in some cases, can change the all-important ascending and culminating signs and move critical planets to other houses that will give you a radically different look and style for the month (though it wonÕt change the chassis, or the engine beneath) – itÕs all up to you.

This report looks at both takes on your coming month, first the part that changes and is full of surprises to field and take advantage of, and second the regular rhythms that drive you from beneath, reinforcing your beat and direction, where you need to mind the music and the step if you want to maximize the best possible results, increasingly, from month to month.

The Void-of-Course Moon

    There is a period of time every couple of days when the transiting Moon has made its last aspect to another body in the sky before changing signs which is described as a Void-of-Course Moon period. It can last from a few minutes to over a day, depending how late in signs the planets are at the time. Because the Moon at this time doesn't really have its "feet on the ground," it is generally considered a period unfavorable for tangible decisions that require solid support, but an excellent time for insight, relaxation, and reaching outside of confining boundaries.

    It's generally a bad time to make purchases, sign contracts, start major new ventures -- anything that you need to rely on down the line. Ordinary daily routine is OK, just not big moves, as outcome is often wild and unpredictable. Events already in operation at the time it begins often suddenly lose their footing and destabilize.

    On the other hand, it's a great time to relax, party, get creative, and generally float free -- when what you want is the wild and unpredictable, a break from ordinary and sometimes confining stability.

Section 1.This MonthÕs Style: Your Look and Feel

    These are the most personal – and changeable – parts of your lunar return. ItÕs about what you look like to others (Ascendant), your reputation and career view (Midheaven), inner personality (Sun), and feelings and emotions (Moon).

Ascendant

    Your Ascendant this month, how you look, dress, whatÕs in the mirror, what others see:

Ascendant in Capricorn

[Above The Fray]
Your look is both cold and bold this month, like the guru come down from the mountain, or the tycoon from the penthouse. You know what makes things work, no fooling, so enjoy the authority youÕre given accordingly.

Moon trine Ascendant

[Singing In Tune]
You look simply marvelous, and feel like it, too. Better, itÕs effortless for the moment, doesnÕt require makeup or a new suit, because itÕs just you humming a song you know so well, from the inside out.

Mars conjunct Ascendant

[Hard-Charger]
YouÕre a bundle of energy looming face-to-face, like a forward waiting for the hike. YouÕll certainly be the first out of the gate, but donÕt be scary, dress it up gently for the faint of heart.

Midheaven

    Your Midheaven this month, what people are saying about you and thus your professional prospects:

Midheaven in Scorpio

[Sultry Stories]
A reputation for secrecy and a sultry style may be circulating, even if none of it is really true. DonÕt let that get in the way of the possibilities it presents, act as if youÕve got what they want, regardless.

Sun

    Your Sun this month, how and where your inner personality shines forth:

Sun in the 11th house

[Double Good Feelings]
You move up in the world when you are with those you care about most, so give special attention to nearest and dearest, and youÕll rise to success.

Sun sextile Saturn

[Experience Speaks]
You can lean back a little and enjoy a slower inner pace because you know youÕve got time and are on the right track. No rush, youÕll get there, and in just the right time for the accomplishment youÕre expecting.

Sun square Uranus

[Gusty Weather]
Sudden situations keep arising that blow you off balance, make you annoyed with yourself and perhaps others. Take some time to smooth feathers all around, and this rough patch will pass soon enough.

Sun sextile Neptune

[Ideally You]
YouÕre swinging along with an easy tap into your hopes and fantasies, a sense of how to achieve your dreams, do whatÕs right, without getting lost in illusions. Nothing to think about, really, just follow your star.

Sun conjunct Pluto

[Blunt Instrument]
ItÕs really easy to make things happen by simply forcing the issue, steamrolling over the problem without actually solving it. Instead, soften your iron fist with a velvet glove, and make an offer no one can – or would want to – refuse.

Moon

    Your Moon this month, the mix of feelings and emotions that are especially on tap:

Moon in the 4th house

[Feeling Firm]
You will feel quietly secure when you know you're on solid ground and you share fundamental understandings at the most meaningful levels. Time to run silent, run deep.

Moon trine Mars

[Play It Like It Lays]
ItÕs easy to intuit how to make your moves this month, as action flows from reaction like hand in glove. It makes you feel good about what youÕre doing, and do things that make you feel good.

 

Moon conjunct Jupiter

[Double Scoop Sundae]
An abundance of good feelings overflows with plenty enough to spread about to your surroundings. If you overdo it, however, later you may feel a little silly at the level of your enthusiasm.

Moon sextile Uranus

[Emotional Discovery]
New feelings you may not have had before slip in and reveal fresh inner territory, and itÕs enough to make you smile. Like a sudden cool breeze on a summerÕs day, it can give you shivers of the best kind.

Moon square Neptune

[Wandering The Marshes]
Feelings surface, then elude you, as mixed emotions turn this way and that. ItÕs hard to tell truth from fiction, and the map seems to have been misplaced. Turn to your head for rescue, follow the logical route, even if it doesnÕt feel right.

Section 2. Monthly Maneuvers: Your Goals and Action Plan

    The inner ÒpersonalÓ planets Mercury, Venus, and Mars paint the way in which your plans (Mercury), desires (Venus), and actions (Mars) combine to set your daily table, get you what you want by setting your goals and making it all happen.

Mercury

    Your Mercury this month, the way you organize your head, structure your intentions, communicate and network, tie it all together:

Mercury in the 11th house

[Stairway To Heaven]
Organizing your inner circle is the order of the month, and the better thatÕs done, the higher you all climb, together. Share the plan, fuel the ambition.

 

Venus

    Your Venus this month, your needs and desires, from love to food to money, what/who you are hot for and is hot for you:

Venus in the 10th house

[Bountiful Broadcast]
TheyÕre saying good things about you, whether or not youÕre aware, so wave back like youÕre riding a parade float. Act like a star, and youÕll be treated accordingly, regardless of reality.

Venus opposition Jupiter

[Insatiable]
You canÕt get enough, even though you try, and the more you chase it the less it satisfies. This is a good recipe for a stomach ache or a heartache, so cut off repeat tries and diminishing returns before it hurts.

Mars

    Your Mars this month, your physical energy, actions, assertiveness, fuel and speedometer rating, the fire inside:

Mars in the 1st house

[Jump In The Game]
YouÕre in the first with the most this month, and the challenge will be to stay in first place farther down the track. Energy is up-front, fired-up, and front-runner ready the moment the gates open.

Moon trine Mars

[Play It Like It Lays]
ItÕs easy to intuit how to make your moves this month, as action flows from reaction like hand in glove. It makes you feel good about what youÕre doing, and do things that make you feel good.

Section 3. Opportunities: Opening Doors, Closing Windows

    The middle (social) planets Jupiter and Saturn are about the opportunities and limitations set by your immediate social and financial environment, whoÕs helping, whoÕs not, what to invest wisely in and whatÕs likely to bring you down. Jupiter tends to be the upside, Saturn the downside.

Jupiter

    Your Jupiter this month, where opportunity knocks, big doings await, prosperity and good times await or elude:

Jupiter in the 4th house

[Palatial Underpinnings]
Your house is not just your home this month, itÕs your palace, or so you can make it appear simply by your pride in who you are and where you come from. Go ahead, show it off, you offer the best.

Moon conjunct Jupiter

[Double Scoop Sundae]
An abundance of good feelings overflows with plenty enough to spread about to your surroundings. If you overdo it, however, later you may feel a little silly at the level of your enthusiasm.

Venus opposition Jupiter

[Insatiable]
You canÕt get enough, even though you try, and the more you chase it the less it satisfies. This is a good recipe for a stomach ache or a heartache, so cut off repeat tries and diminishing returns before it hurts.

Jupiter sextile Uranus

[Original Pathways]
This is a period when ambition and originality go hand in hand, so new trends are working particularly well and even the unpredictably original seems dependable. Enjoy it while it lasts.

Saturn

    Your Saturn this month, surrounding situations which may hold you back or on a good day wisely keep you from overreaching.

 

Saturn in the 9th house

[Good Fences, Good Neighbors]
Sometimes itÕs good to restrict your physical and intellectual wanderings and take a second look at where youÕve already been, reconsolidate your wisdom, know yourself so you can better know your neighbors.

Sun sextile Saturn

[Experience Speaks]
You can lean back a little and enjoy a slower inner pace because you know youÕve got time and are on the right track. No rush, youÕll get there, and in just the right time for the accomplishment youÕre expecting.

Saturn sextile Pluto

[DestinyÕs Mill]
The mill of fate is grinding away behind the scenes, though few are noticing it right now, as all seems smooth enough for the moment. What is must be, but that contains within it the seeds of future breakage.

Section 4. Background Trends

    The outer planets are the slow-movers you donÕt generally live to see come full circle, part of the larger picture of which your life is only a small part but which may be directly affecting you. The evolutions of national and world politics, economics, religious and moral trends, wars and migrations, boom times and depressions, all are out of your control, but they can control you, for better or worse.

Uranus

    Your Uranus this month, whatÕs shaking things up, unexpected change, shocks to your expectations, brilliant breakthroughs, sudden turnarounds, off the edge developments:

Uranus in the 2nd house

[Shaky Ground]
Financial surprises of any and all kinds could be in the wind, likely unexpected, so be prepared to field sudden deposits or withdrawals. WhatÕs underfoot may not seem trustworthy, because it isnÕt, for the moment.

Sun square Uranus

[Gusty Weather]
Sudden situations keep arising that blow you off balance, make you annoyed with yourself and perhaps others. Take some time to smooth feathers all around, and this rough patch will pass soon enough.

Moon sextile Uranus

[Emotional Discovery]
New feelings you may not have had before slip in and reveal fresh inner territory, and itÕs enough to make you smile. Like a sudden cool breeze on a summerÕs day, it can give you shivers of the best kind.

Jupiter sextile Uranus

[Original Pathways]
This is a period when ambition and originality go hand in hand, so new trends are working particularly well and even the unpredictably original seems dependable. Enjoy it while it lasts.

Uranus square Pluto

[Social Strain]
The people rise, and governments fall, as new technologies and awareness sweep over whole continents over this period of several years in the making. Take advantage, take shelter, or both.

Neptune

    Your Neptune this month, dreams and fantasies, hopeful and wishful thinking, the perhaps unattainable but desirable creative muse, always great and heady if you can get a piece, sometimes sad and confusing if you donÕt:

Neptune in the 1st house

[Dressed For A Dream]
You can play any part, put on any mask, and it will be believed for a while. Conversely, plain presentations may look suspect. People are projecting themselves upon you, and you must pick and choose what they think they see.

 

Sun sextile Neptune

[Ideally You]
YouÕre swinging along with an easy tap into your hopes and fantasies, a sense of how to achieve your dreams, do whatÕs right, without getting lost in illusions. Nothing to think about, really, just follow your star.

Moon square Neptune

[Wandering The Marshes]
Feelings surface, then elude you, as mixed emotions turn this way and that. ItÕs hard to tell truth from fiction, and the map seems to have been misplaced. Turn to your head for rescue, follow the logical route, even if it doesnÕt feel right.

Pluto

    Your Pluto this month, ongoing forces of destiny or just naked power that can push you ahead or shove you down, regardless of how you handle it. Inside, it can be unaddressed needs that drive you, sometimes exciting and arousing, sometimes hurtful and unfair, always to be wary of:

Pluto in the 12th house

[Look Both Ways, Twice]
You donÕt want to step off the sidewalk and be facing a semi hauling down the street at you. And you donÕt want to be that driver, either. Both possibilities lurk this month, especially if you try to use your power heedlessly.

Sun conjunct Pluto

[Blunt Instrument]
ItÕs really easy to make things happen by simply forcing the issue, steamrolling over the problem without actually solving it. Instead, soften your iron fist with a velvet glove, and make an offer no one can – or would want to – refuse.

Saturn sextile Pluto

[DestinyÕs Mill]
The mill of fate is grinding away behind the scenes, though few are noticing it right now, as all seems smooth enough for the moment. What is must be, but that contains within it the seeds of future breakage.

Uranus square Pluto

[Social Strain]
The people rise, and governments fall, as new technologies and awareness sweep over whole continents over this period of several years in the making. Take advantage, take shelter, or both.

Section 5. Personal Lunar Return Highlights

    Some months, the planets in the lunar return fall right on top of important planetary positions in your own birth chart. These are highly important, because they give a stand-up, personal accent to your overall situation for the month, often highlighting peaks of longer planetary cycles giving you a boost not just this month, but repeating all year. This month,these include:

Lunar Return Ascendant conjunct natal Jupiter

[Rolling Thunder]
YouÕre leading with your most ambitious, growth-oriented side this month, so come on like gangbusters and youÕll sweep the prizes. DonÕt hesitate to speculate, conjecture, hypothesize, let the sky be the limit.

Lunar Return Ascendant conjunct natal Saturn

[Glowing Gravitas]
Your serious side is distinctly to the fore this month, which may make you seem to proceed a bit more slowly and with greater experience and authority. It canÕt help to be careful, but donÕt be a stick in the mud, either.

Lunar Return Mars conjunct natal Jupiter

[Blast Off]
A biennial surge of energy triggers liftoff of ambitious projects or new directions that were waiting for an extra boost to get into motion. Try to channel it into something well-planned, donÕt fritter it away at random.

Lunar Return Mars conjunct natal Saturn

[Another Mile]
A biennial surge of energy directed at your bottom line adds newly-invigorated stamina where you may have been flagging before. Where logjams are encountered, it can break them up and open the way again.

Lunar Return Jupiter conjunct natal Moon

[Happy Feelings]
This month highlights a twelve-year cycle of emotional highs and expanding feelings of great possibilities and well-being. Everything immediately gets a positive spin, and that makes it happen that way.

Lunar Return Saturn conjunct natal Neptune

[Delayed Dreams]
This long-term (29 1/2 year) Saturn-Neptune cycle peak can both clarify and cut through your hopes and dreams, ridding you of impossible visions, narrowing your focus on what you ought, rightly, to be looking for. A reality check, for sure.

The Daily News, All Month Long

    Throughout the month, the rhythms of the planets highlight both the lunar return and your own natal birth chart. These give special qualities to each day, with opportunities and possible pitfalls to match. Some of these are one-shots which youÕll never see again, others part of a monthly rhythm that you will see every month and should strive to get in tune to, to get ahead of the curve.

What youÕll see here:
Transits to the lunar return planets and houses – these are small tweaks to your transient monthly style. TheyÕll happen again next month, but on totally different days for a different lunar return. Worth a look, but wonÕt come back to haunt you. Use them and forget them, like a handy but disposable tissue.

Lunar cycle rhythms of the natal chart planets and houses – these will come back every month (in the same order, with the same advice, in your next report), so note them carefully, get into tune with them, learn to plan and make room for them ahead of time. The better you know these, the more youÕll be on top of and even ahead of yourself every month. Remember them.

New and full Moons, – these are the big, monthly tidal rhythms, the overall ebb and flow of intensity that affect not only you , but everybody, regardless, from ordinary mortals to would-be werewolves, vampires, and freelance lunatics.

[Soft Ground, Hard Choices]
Your resistance to change is low, which might make for action but also can catch you off-guard, more easily sideswiped or lured into unwise actions that wonÕt support you later. Wait until youÕre sure before acquiescing.

Transiting Moon opposition Natal Jupiter
4:26:12 AM EST

[Mending And Tending]
This is your monthly expansion low, when itÕs better to patch up and police whatÕs already in operation than launch something new. Make the most of what youÕve invested in before you throw more effort, money elsewhere.

The next few days are partner perfect, so donÕt rely on yourself when you can lean on someone else for support, affection, and who knows what else. Time to hand it off and play ball, together.

Transiting Moon opposition Natal Ascendant
1:46:42 PM EST

[Hand-Off]
YouÕre not the first pick of the litter this time of month, but your partner could be, so find someone else to share the spotlight with, enjoy their light and make it your own. Time to be a team player, pass the ball.

Your monthly peak of inventiveness and discovery can have the unusual jumping out of the box and startle everyone, but original approaches that pop up now can be mined all month long when inspiration wanes.

Transiting Moon conjunct Natal Pluto
1:43:32 AM EST

[Stopping Point]
This monthly power cycle brings issues that may have to be dealt with forcefully, unless you can manage a tactical evasion to prevent it. You can push and shove to get your way, but better to let a surrogate do it if possible.

Transiting Moon Enters Lunar Return 8th house
2:13:18 PM EST

[Throwing It Out]

This monthly lunar low finds feelings flagging, less emotional entanglement and interaction. A great time for dispassionately evaluating relationships, because thereÕs less passion to interfere with your judgment.

[Step Up And Get It]
The move you need to make in order to get the juice out of the month is on tap today, so donÕt miss the opportunity. That extra bit of mutual attraction to bring love or money (or both) is within reach, so grasp it.

[Slim Pickings]
This is a low-appetite phase of the month, which is just as well, as itÕs not that good for getting what youÕd like, anyway. A good time to find out if you took as much as you needed earlier, or need to readjust input for next month.

Transiting Moon conjunct Lunar Return Sun
10:36:39 AM EST

[Jumpstart]
This monthÕs efforts get a sudden boost, like they didnÕt really get started until just now. If you need to repeat steps to get it all in sync, do so, and youÕll get better momentum the rest of the month.

[Temptations]
You can get off on the wrong foot by too-easily exposing your personal secrets or weaknesses for short-term advantage or pleasure. If thereÕs a problem, play it close to the chest, donÕt give away your keys.
