This Week -- Give Thanks

Our final week of Scorpio Phase coincides with our final week of November.   The pleasant aspects seem to overwhelm any of the negative ones.   I will go out on a limb and say there may be fewer skirmishes at Thanksgiving this year.    With a smile feel free to say, "Pass the peas, please."

Last Quarter Moon Phase
November 25
2:27pm EST

Last Quarter moon:  Now we do the final adjustments to the seeds we planted on new. The final call, the final letters to send, we follow all the trails that came up that still make sense.  And we let the other parts lay fallow. It is a time of action but wise action.  It is a time for living  “The serenity prayer

God, grant me the Serenity
to accept the things
I cannot change Courage to change the
things I can, and the
Wisdom to know the difference.

Focus on:
Good god what is going on with the details in your life?  How are you on it?  When you visualize yourself fully empowered what details do you need to manage to get there?

Special focus:
11/25: Mercury/Saturn:  Mentally shrewed. Conversation that is succinct.   Brain is sharp.
11/27: Mercury/Venus: Fun, lively, creativity, artistic, joy, fun conversations.
11/27: Mercury/Jupiter: Big thoughts, big ideas, big opinions.   Big Bridges.

Balsamic Moon Phase
November 29
9:59am EST  

Balsamic:   We let go.  By releasing we can prepare for the new. 

Focus on   We release relationships. We release the need to be a ‘partner’. We release the need to compromise.    We release negotiating.

The Week Ahead

This week really is about the Full Moon which started on Sunday and is in effect the beginning of the week.   Do the work of the full moon, which you can find on my previous post.   At the end of the week we move into Disseminating with the accent on family and emotions.  

11/19: Mars/Jupiter: Actions  based on inspirations, warrior for big ideas. 
11/20: Mercury/Pluto: Exact thoughts, precision conversation.  No frills but it is okay.
November 21
11:37a EST
Disseminating Moon Phase

Focus on:  What are you sharing with others that speaks to family?    How are you sharing your feelings?  By sharing what emotionally makes you tick how are you connecting with others?   What are others sharing with you?    

Special focus:
11/21: Sun enters Sag:  Amazon gift cards go far with your Sag friend.
11/21: Sun/Venus:  Actions that feel disconnected from love and value. But slogging through it anyway.

11/23: Venus/Saturn:  Working hard for love and values.  Love of practical.

Full Moon Taurus

Taurus Full Moon
November 17  4:15am
25 Taurus 26

Is there anything more sure and steady than Taurus?   Is there anything more practical than Taurus?  Of the three earth signs (Taurus, Virgo & Capricorn) arguably Taurus is the most practical.  Virgo can get crazy micromanaging minutia that they leave ‘practicality’ in the dust.   Capricorn can get wrapped up with image and pretense that it abandons practicality.   Taurus, the first earth sign of the zodiac is pretty much always being practical. However, where Taurus gets lost is when it gets lazy and stuck.   That is their Achilles heel and when they indulge their laziness and stuck-ness  they get left behind after the world moves on.    

“What is the best antidote to being stuck?”   Ah, that is why god created North and South Nodes in Scorpio and Taurus.  The nodes of the moon are in a sign for about 18 months and we are now in the last few months of the Scorpio North Node-Taurus South Node. 

For over a year we have been processing Scorpio and Taurus.    Scorpio energetically needs to process and remove stuff.   Things go in and then they go out.   As I have reminded you, Scorpio rules plumbing both in buildings and the plumbing in your body.   Yes you want to drink fresh water, no you don’t want to drink pee.   Yes you want to eat food no you don’t want to eat poop.   And no, no, no you don’t want to drink and eat and not eliminate.   Just imagine that visual for a moment and you will feel what Taurus looks like stuck.  

If you look around your world; during the last year you should be seeing big changes.   People are getting rid of stuff.  People are getting rid of relationships.  People are moving on to new places.   And sure people do this all the time but this is different.  You can see it in the faces of others and maybe the face in your own mirror –People mean business.  They are overhauling their life.    It is not some nambly pambly chump change move --it is big stuff.   Life changing movements.    This is due in part to North Node in Scorpio and South Node in Taurus. They feel the need to be practical (south node) about real metamorphic (north node) changes.   And  now here we are at the last Full Moon in Taurus before the nodes move out of Scorpio and Taurus into Libra and Aries.

What has been going on since April 2012 when the Nodes first moved into Scorpio/Taurus?   Were you starting  to feel something back then?  When we had a Scorpio Full Moon May 5 2012, you   may have gotten a real sense that movement was underfoot.   We had a Scorpio Full Moon October 29, 2012.  What was happening?  We were you feeling stuck but now more angry about it?  Were you feeling like you were doing or getting the work done that you knew was in you?   Were you taking action, bit by bit, the way Taurus excels?  Or were you scared and stuck and defending why you were still stuck.  “I’m scared to blah, blah, blah…”   Then last Spring we had a Scorpio Full Moon on April 25th.   Were you on your path?  Were you making a real headway?  Were you making changes internally AND externally?  Or were you stuck?   

Do you see a theme?

Now here we are in the last Taurus Full moon sharing the sign with the south node—this is it.  What small bricks can you put together to give you a new life?   Take the time right now on this Full Moon to look at what you have accomplished in the last year.  And if you have not done what you wanted to do then where are you being lame?  Where are you being lazy?  Where are  you wasting time?   Why are you so scared?   Got it? 

Great, make this Full Moon work for you so that by the time the Nodes enter Libra/Aries you will have taken full advantage of Scorpio/Taurus. The next time you see these nodes will be in eighteen years from now.

Rob Ford

If you are not following the antics of Rob Ford  crack smokin', big boozin' and all time uber frat boy Toronto Mayor, well it has been a sight.  For sure.

I've seen a lot of debauched press conferences by politicians, (Weiner anyone?)  but this is a new one.

Watch it.  And just know there are many many more conferences in his past as cuckoo.   Wiki puts his birthdate as May 28, 1969.   Birth time unknown.    I did a chart for 12 noon just for sport.  Well, he is a Gemini and heavens knows they are good chatters.   I found JFK's our Gemini president (there have only been two-Bush Sr.) press conferences very entertaining but Ford certainly took his chat nature to a new level.
Anyway,  I'm guessing he is born way earlier and is getting Uranus oppose Moon and maybe Pluto square Moon.  Do ya think?

But I'm sure we all see his natal Mercury Oppose Mars.   No shit.

Neptune direct

How did you spend Neptune stationing direct?
It happened today at 4:11pm EST.

I was doing what Pisces loves, getting lost in art.  I stopped all the things on my to-do list that were waiting for me to do and instead got on my bed and watched a documentary on JFK.  Why not get lost in a weird time that is part glamour part horrible.    God people smoked a lot.   Anyway, I didn't care, I wasn't burning any calories on anything meaningful.   I was just melting into my bed and my mind melted into pink hat in Dealey Plaza.  I started to wonder, what if Lee Harvey didn't have a beef with Kennedy but actually had a beef with Governor Connolly and it was all just an accident that Kennedy was killed.   Oh, my brain does wander,  how Neptunian.

Anyway, here is what I wrote back on new moon about Neptune direct.

November 13 Neptune in Pisces turns direct.   Again, this is not an extraordinary event.   Neptune spends half the year going bass-akwards.  How interesting he is turning himself around in the zodiac window where we are letting go and being reborn.   Neptune is so dreamy and fuzzy and in his home sign of Pisces he feels more tweaked than usual.   Many people are feeling the fuzzy factor.  It is hard not to watch President Obama with Moon at early Gemini and now see how he is getting fuzzy from Neptune.  Certainly Neptune is using his ‘disillusioned’ brush on Obama.      Those people who have planets around  2, 3 or 4 degrees of Gemini, Virgo, Sag and Pisces are feeling Neptune more than the rest of us.   Do things feel out of our grasp?   It  is trite but now more than ever you gotta let go and let God.   And of course, even those of us with no planets at hose degrees should still have our antennae up these days more than usual (during Uranus/Pluto squares until 2015)  And with Neptune going direct we will have a very good idea what our intuition is telling us.   For heavens sake follow your intuition.
