This Week in Astrology

This week in astrology we are in the 1st quarter moon which will activate our faith & spirituality along with our inner mystic.   We move into Gibbous at the end of the week on the 30th where we refine our sense of individuality and not getting lost in others.    On December 1 Mars opposes Uranus.   Fuses are very short, primal impulses are difficult to contain, warrior instincts are up.    On the 2nd Jupiter and Neptune work to elevate humanitarianism, spirituality, healing and gentle quiet knowing.  

First Quarter Moon
November 26, 2017  
12:02am EST

Focus on:  What actions are you taking that support your faith?  What actions are you taking that speak to things that are holy? What actions are you taking that speak to metaphysical or spirituality?  What actions are you taking that are unworldly?  What actions are you taking that touch the great unknown? 

Special focus

11/27 Mercury conjunct Saturn.  Structured thoughts that produce results.  Big thoughts that might be do-able or do they need more concrete action?

Gibbous Moon
November 30, 2017
4:27 am EST

Focus on:

How are your refining your self purpose?  How are you refining your identity?  How are you refining your pioneering nature?  How are you refining your impulses?  

Special Focus:

12/1: Mars oppose Uranus   Warrior for fairness takes on independent rebel.
12/2: Jupiter trine Neptune

12/3: Mercury Retrograde 29 Sag 18  2:34 am  (see other post)
12/3: Sun square Neptune.  A wee bit lost in the woods.  Get quiet and meditate. 

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.

Astrology This Week

Our week starts off with Venus conjunct Jupiter in Scorpio early in the morning on the 13th.   Once a year Venus gets right on Jupiter so it is not unusual for a conjunction but of course Jupiter has just moved into Scorpio since its last transit 12 years ago.   So, we are getting our Scorpio on—big time.  

We’ve been building towards this transit all month.  Jupiter expands whatever it touches and Venus speaks to our values.  During the weekend did you find your softness up?  Did you feel your tender up?   Connecting on an intuitive deep level is part of our journey during Jupiter in Scorpio and when touched by Venus we get the gift of processing through our heart.  Versus the brain.   What do we feel in our heart?  What is it telling us on a deep level?   Remember we will have Jupiter in Scorpio for a year.   Scorpio favors black and white versus grey meaning it is looking for a line and picking which side it stands.   What came up this weekend where you found yourself saying that is beautiful or that is wrong?  What was your heart telling you?  Did you find something speak to you and you knew you needed to move on it?   It could have been subtle.   Whatever it was the process you did to ‘get’ it, on an intuitive level is something you can call upon for the next ten month while Jupiter continues its journey.

We are still in the last quarter Libra moon.   Actions based on truth and bravery.   

On the 14th we move into Balsamic moon where we release our washy washiness and non-committal.  New Moon in Scorpio launches on November 18.   (Separate post to come)

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:
What actions are you taking that stoke your pride? What actions are you taking that speak to your heart?  What actions are you taking that are dramatic?  How are you learning the power of theater?   What’s going on with your ego?

Special focus:

Special focus:
11/13: Venus conjunct Jupiter:  Love & Money expands.   Bridging to money and loving. 
11/13: Mercury/Neptune:  Tricky conversation that might not be accurate.   Stupid bragging rubs people wrong.  

Balsamic Moon Phase
November 14, 2017
8:11am EST

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

Focus on  How are we releasing  our wishy washy?  How are we releasing our co-dependency?  How are we releasing our lazy?  How are we releasing the celebration of the partner at the loss of ourselves?
