Sagittarius New Moon -- It Is VERY Big - Oh And It Is On The Galactic Center

The Sag New Moon is in two weeks on December 18.   I almost NEVER have a new moon up this early.   But as I started working on the report last month and I realized that there is so much going on plus I believe there will be a lot of energy coming up between the full moon in Gemini and the New Moon in Sag.   So much that I want to prepare myself and my readers as early as possible so we can all process it together.

You will find my New Moon report HERE.

This Week in Astrology. Here comes Spy vs Spy

This week starts off with the Gemini Full Moon, which launched Sunday.   How are we adaptable?  How are we looking back and finding our truth?  Who is telling the truth?  Who is not?  Where are you on truth?   What nonsense are you hearing?   Is there any nonsense you are communicating?   How is your communication in alignment with you’re your truth?  The moon is bright and full and there is no room for shadows, what is reflecting on your communication? Go Here for Full Moon.  

On the 6th we move into Disseminating moon where the accent is on sharing our emotions, sharing our ‘family-ness’, sharing our protectiveness.    And maybe sharing our snappiness. 

On Dec 9th, Mars moves out of Libra and into Scorpio.    This is a way different energy for Mars.   Mars in Libra can be uncomfortable place for the warrior planet as the energy feels noncommittal, light, unfocused and more theoretical than decisive.   With Mars in Scorpio, we have a warrior who is all in, like a nuclear submarine.   Quiet, down very deep, putting sights on a target and then – BAM!  Taking out the opponent.   Energy can be very focused and capable of taking on huge projects but not necessarily doing it with a lot of fan fair, in fact it is the opposite—Mars in Scorpio is super stealth and very Spy vs Spy.    Watch your own energy as transiting Mars goes through your Scorpio house, you should feel your energy focus in a different way, the last time Mars was in Scorpio was June & July of 2016, how were you harnessing your energy?  There may be a revisit personally and let’s keep our eyes on the world and see if things from that period come up again between now and Jan 26---albeit it could be subtle as it is Spy vs Spy.

Special focus:
12/6: Mercury conjunct Saturn ;  Let’s go back and think about those things that are big but need restructuring.    How can we be practical bit by bit?

Focus on:  How are you sharing your emotions?  How are you sharing yoru feelings?  How are you sharing your family?  How are you sharing your cozy?   How are you sharing your snappiness?

Gemini Full Moon December 3 --Super Moon & We're already feeling it. You know it.

Gemini New Moon
Super Moon
December 3, 2017
10:46 am EST

To get the most of this Gemini Full Moon we need to put it in the larger context.  

Scorpio New Moon launched two weeks ago on November 18.  Since that launch we are processing how we plug into sex, finances, stagnancy, evolution among other things (GO HERE for more detail) and we consider how our plumbing works on all these matters.   Meaning, are we bringing in toxic influences in our finances?   How can we unplug and  flush out the toxicity and bring in fresh approaches to our finances?  Or how is our plumbing attached to toxic influences that impact our evolution or lack of it?   How do we plug into a fresh approach?   Remember with Scorpio the answer is to let things die so that something new can be reborn.    Are we letting our bad plumbing die?  

Gemini full moon following Scorpio New Moon will speak to our brain, mental awareness and communication.  What is our thinking about our plumbing?  Where did it come from?  In short what is our belief system? 

So much of what we do is habit.   Maybe it is a habit that was born when we were kids or maybe as young adults and we have been doing it for so long that we don’t even know any other way of doing things.    On the Gemini full moon we get the gift of adaptable thinking.  What if we do something in a different manner?   What freshness will emerge by being open to a new approach?     Now that is the basic tenor of the Gemini full moon.  However this is not just your garden variety full moon.  It is all that and more. 

First of all it is a super moon and it is super close to earth.   It will be very big in the sky and the closest one of the year.

The full moon also comes into play about 12 hours after Mercury retrograde.     This Mercury retrograde is all about stopping everything and looking at ----drum roll-----belief systems.    (Go here for more info).   

 Do you see a theme?  And remember Mercury is the ruling planet of Gemini so this Full Moon is taking orders from Mercury retrograde in Sag which looks a lot like a wild horse going backwards to find the truth he left along his journey.   What truth about you have you neglected?  What truth about your beliefs have you forgotten?   Again, do those beliefs still work for you?  Tell the truth.    At the same time Saturn is working with Mercury to be focused on meaningful beliefs and fixing our thinking that is important and not caring about super small stuff.   Have you already noticed that you are not caring about things like you used to since the last couple weeks of November?  Has an energy shifted?   In a side note, siblings and neighbors could also play a part in your belief systems that need to be processed and perhaps released.  

The Full Moon also comes in after Saturn got on top of the Galactic Center (GC) November 25 and Mercury was on the GC on November 28.  On December 17 The Sag New Moon will be exact on the galactic center.      This full moon in Gemini can be a welcomed bridge between letting go of beliefs that no longer serve us to being out there in the world with inspired goals and new truth on the Sag New Moon.

There is one janky part of the full moon chart and that is the big ass square with Neptune.  Something fishy is going on.  We may see it in the news.  We may feel it in our life.     Take your time and breathe your way as you process the energy.   Can anyone really lie to us or do we already know the truth?      There is also a square with Chiron in Pisces that is quite painful.  What are we thinking about when we are confronted with very sad news?   Do we collapse into “What’s the use?”    Is that serving us for our evolution?   And how are we kidding ourselves?  Do we know we are going along with liars because it is just easier?  And how are we lying?  How often is it happening?   How is it serving our belief system?   How is that clogging up the system?   

And do we on god’s green earth know how to follow our intuition?   Better question do we know how to plug into our intuition?   The bad side of Gemini is getting lost in facts and missing the big picture.   Emotions are not comfortable for Gemini who will talk himself out of every emotion if left to his own devices.   Luckily on December 2nd Jupiter will be trining Neptune, which puts the emphasis on emotions and comfort and humanitarian causes and understanding the power of deep feelings.   Take that Gemini!    You can't talk your way out of the deep powerful truth you know that is in you!   Release the need to get lost in all the facts and just play with the notion that something needs to be healed and belief systems that are broken need to be released.   Then start to be light on your feet and pivot.  Adaptability is the gift of Gemini full moon in this quite extraordinary period.

First Quarter Moon

Special focus

Mercury Retrograde

Mercury Retrograde
29 Sag
Dec 3
2:34am EST

Let’s get our head around Mercury Retrograde.   

On December 3 at 2:34am EST Mercury stations retrograde at 29 degrees of Sagittarius.    Note that degree—29.  There are only 30 degrees in a sign so this is quite a statement for Mercury to stop and turn around at the final degree.   Imagine driving to your destination and just as you are about a block away from the hotel you turn the car around and go back to a point halfway through the journey.   What would be the purpose of such a move?     Let’s assume we missed something on the journey and need to go back and catch it again.

In this case with Mercury retrograding in the sign Sagittarius we may be missing the importance of:
Enthusiasm or perhaps misguided enthusiasm
Philosophy or perhaps misguided philosophies
Judgments or misguided judgments
Education or misguided education
Humor or misguided humor
Optimism or misguided optimism.
Traveling or misguided traveling 

Mercury in Sagittarius can be some wild thinking.  Imagine a bucking horse, braying and snorting at first blush we might dismiss the wild horse as being skittish but maybe there is something the horse knows that we are missing?

Watch your thoughts for the three weeks as Mercury travels back to 13 degrees of Sag.  Watch what you read and what you hear.   It is inspiring?  Does it fire you up?   Do you need the fire?   Is it the truth?   And if it is not the truth can you be smart enough to know what is true? 

Mercury will retrograde back until it reaches 13 degrees Sag on December 22 and then it will turn around one more time and head forward again going over all those degrees for a third time.   

With this particular Mercury retrograde we should assume there is something about our thinking and communication that needs a tune up or perhaps overhaul.      Saturn has been in Sagittarius since 2014 and it leaves Sag on December 19th (the day after the Sag new moon) and moves into Capricorn.  It won’t return to Sagittarius for 27 years so this lesson of Saturn in Sag has to last us for a while.   But remember when Saturn moves into Capricorn Mercury will still be chugging backwards in Sag.  It is as if the Universe is saying, “Hey, all those great lessons you learned for the last two years with Saturn—let’s make sure your brain really understands the work by getting Mercury to slow down and go back and rethink some Sag stuff one more time.”

We should also discuss that the Sag new moon is at 26 degrees of Sagittarius, which is the Galactic Center of the Milky Way.   When Mercury turns retro it’s happening right near the Galactic Center.    And then after it goes direct it will hit the Galactic Center again on January 8.    We will discuss more about the Galactic Center in the Sag New Moon report but remember this dark black hole in the center of our galaxy is about the same size as four million suns.   It is the source of our gravity.    When planets touch the Galactic Center we can assume there are forces at work that we may not see but are very powerful.    Between Mercury retrograding near the Galactic Center and Saturn spending most of November near it and the New Moon launching on the middle of it---- We are being asked to pay attention to the forces around us and inside of us pushing and pulling all especially through this Mercury retrograde.   And definitely let’s assume nothing is random or coincidental, my friends.

Dates to note:

On November 14 Mercury crosses shadow point.  (13 Sag)
On December 3 at 2:34am EST Mercury turns retrograde  (29 Sag)
On December 22 at 5:50pm EST it turns direct  (13 Sag)
On January 10 Mercury crosses the shadow point (29 Sag)

Yes, yes, yes—there is the usual stuff that comes up with Mercury retrogrades, miscommunications, broken technology schedule conflicts, lost stuff, appointment snafus, you know, double check everything.

Have a good retrograde

Astrology This Week

This week in astrology continues the Scorpio New Moon.  How is it going so far?   Are you clearing out your plumbing?  Are you looking at where you have clogs?   For the full NewMoon Report go HERE.

On the 21st the Sun moves into Sag.  Happy birthday my fellow centaurs.

On the 22nd we move into Crescent phase with the accent on Capricorn putting the emphasis on business and conservative approaches.   Just before the moon moves into Crescent Neptune turns direct.   Where we have been fuzzy might start to clear.   Spirituality could also flow in a new way.  

New moon: Plant seeds, make calls, activate, start projects.   Activate something that will ideally lead you to more.  This is the phase where INTENT is critical.  Even if the results are not immediate, the intent is there.  You may not have all the answers or road map but you should put out your Intent.

This focus:  Are you paying attention to what goes in and what goes out of your life?  Double check that everything coming in is really fresh.  Check your money, your sex, your debts, your power, your ability to die and be reborn.    Plant seeds that start a fresh new you. 

Special focus
11/21: Sun enters Sagittarius
11/22: Neptune direct at 11 Pisces 27 (9:20am EST) (see above)

Crescent Moon Phase
Nov 22, 2017
 9:44am EST

Focus on: What are you learning about business?  What are you learning about being a CEO?  What are you learning about the “public” persona?  What are you learning about success? What are you learning about practicality and prudence?  What are you learning about pessismism? 

Special focus:

11/25: Mercury trine Uranus.  Quick thinking with dynamic creativity.   Breakthrough thinking and break outs.
