Astrology November 23 - December 1



November 23, 2021   

4:50am PST   


Disseminating: Share information; find a teacher or someone who has more knowledge. Perhaps there was a big ol’ blow out on the full and one feels in need of support and help, this is the phase to reach out to one who knows more. This is when we find a rabbi or a minister or therapist who gives us more insight.   And of course, you too may be ready to teach and share your own information.  



Focus on:  How are you sharing emotions?   What is the state of your connection to family?  How would outside support from someone wise help you navigate bumps with family? 




Special focus:


11/24 Mercury enters Sagittarius.  Fun thoughts, generous thinking, travel ideas come to the forefront.  Spirituality and faith are pondered.  

11/25: Mercury opposite North Node.  In two weeks is Solar Eclipse watch this day to see if a theme pops up that reverberates at the Sag new moon.  


Last Quarter Moon Phase

November 27, 2021

4:27am PST





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:

How do your daily actions line up with your ability to transform?  Are you aware that any changes are connected to changes you need to make to your daily schedule?    Consider that as you plan the next three days.  



Special focus 


11/28: Mercury conjunct Sun.  Fun, pleasure, good laughs.   

11/29: Mars trine Neptune.  Where we feel battle fatigued we find a spiritual salve that makes us get up in the morning. 




Balsamic Moon Phase


November 30, 2021

6:07pm PST      


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



Focus on How are you releasing relationships? How are you releasing patterns in relationships that do not serve you?  How are you releasing giving up too much for the sake of the relationship? 





Special focus:

Taurus Full Moon Lunar Eclipse. November 19, 2021 12:57am PST


path of lunar eclipse from Time And Date


November 19, 2021

12: 57 AM PST 

27 Taurus 14

This Taurus full moon is a partial lunar eclipse.   The percentage of the eclipse shadow is determined by the closeness the full moon is to the nodes.    The north node is at 1 degree of Gemini, so it is out of sign but still close enough to put the 27-degree moon in Taurus at 97 percent shadow.    This lunar eclipse Is also the longest lunar eclipse in 580 years.   The process will begin at 10:02pm Pacific time and last three hours and twenty-eight minutes and will be seen in North America, the pacific ocean and western edge of China, Japan and Australia.   It is also a blood moon meaning the shadow will have a rust color.    Clearly, this full moon is getting our attention.  


Taurus full moons remind us of the importance of the physical.    While we all like a good conversation or perhaps we like the feeling of our emotions with their peaks and flows, Taurus says, “That’s all fine and well but where is my shelter?  Where’s my bed?  Where’s my food? What’s going on with my body?”    Taurus speaks to grinding stuff down to the essentials including our money and work.   We get out of our head and get practical.     The eclipse of course can bring out the fears around these issues. This three-day lunar phase could bring up self-doubts.     Our money could look weak, or our property seems tired.  Our revenue source seems not enough.   The Sun in Scorpio (oppose the moon) is powerful it its ability to find our insecurity.  We could root around and poke up some icky stuff in our psyche   Fortunately, the gift of Scorpio is by exposing the ick we can also drill down and consider what is a real problem and what is just fear.   Jealousy, envy, maybe even pity party can be resolved by Taurus practicality.  Is there enough ____ (fill in the blank) to get you through the hour, day, week, year?    If there is a kernel of good, Taurus tells brother Scorpio, ‘Let’s start there and buildup”. 


Jupiter in Aquarius is in a T square to both the Sun and Moon reminding us that there is power in friends, associations, and our tribe of like-minded.   However, given it is a T Square, there may be a question if we have outgrown our circle.   Is the like-minded not so like-minded these days?  Or is too small and we need to expand, (Jupiter’s favorite word.) Nothing says the power of social network more than Jupiter in Aquarius.   It is interesting that this lunar eclipse has this strong aspect with Jupiter the month before Jupiter leaves Aquarius and enters Pisces on Dec 28.   Perhaps it is the final poke to get our attention that we might benefit if we get beyond our circle and find some common ground with people we would normally consider ‘outside’ our world.  


This full moon is also identified as Beaver Moon by Native Americans who observed that beavers are their busiest around this moon.   Perhaps we will find our own OCD kick in and we harness our power and have a busy three days taking care of those issues that will improve our practical world.  Just remember to not go too far and cue into your body.  Even beavers take naps.

Aspects & Lunar Phase This Week


First Quarter Moon 

November 11, 2021 

4:46am PST  



Focus on:  What actions are you taking speak to your community?  What actions are you taking that empower you but at the same time rely on others who are like minded?   How are you organizing your efforts with help through community?  How are you reinvigorated by humanitarian efforts?  



Special Note


11/13: Mercury opposite Uranus.  More disruptive thinking, more saying stuff just to get a reaction.  Ask yourself, am I ready to be this mouthy? 



Gibbous Moon

November 14, 2021

11:27pm PST  




We refine our information.  We pick and choose, we discriminate, and we organize to be ‘Virgo’ like.  We sort through details.  Have we missed something?  How are we sifting through the information?  Go back and make sure something hasn’t been neglected.  Refine our actions.  


Focus on:  How are you refining your independence?  What are you sorting through that will take care of self?   What are you sorting through that will give you a new path?  



Special focus

11/15: Sun square Jupiter.  Philosophy versus humanitarian.  Come off the mountain and wash the feet of those who are in pain.  Can you, do it?  

11/17: Mars opposite Uranus (See Scorpio New Moon) 

11/18: Mercury Trine Neptune.  Yay, a reprieve, kind thinking, soft caring.   Finding joy and thinking about it. 




Neptune Station Direct: December 1

Neptune Stations Direct

December 1, 5:22am PST 

20 Pisces 24 


It is interesting that near the end of the Scorpio lunar cycle, with all the powerful tension, Neptune slows down and stations direct.   Neptune spends half of every year in retrograde, this period is wrapping up a cycle that started June 25th  


As we discussed at the beginning of the Neptune Retrograde , Neptune moved into Pisces in 2012 and will remain here until 2026.   Because Neptune is so far out in our solar system it takes many years for it to travel around the zodiac. The last time Neptune was in Pisces was between 1847 and 1862.   Neptune works the psyche on a spectrum from inspirational to delusional.   Finding reality can be challenging for Neptune, in any sign, but in Pisces it is ginned up like a fog machine on a Hollywood sound stage.  Clouds and fuzzy thinking everywhere.    In the last period of Neptune in Pisces, we know that in the years 1847-1862 was the run up and the beginning of the USA Civil War.  The first statement against slavery was written in early America in 1688 and yet slavery continued and grew.  By the time of 1776, there continued to be abolitionists but still those who argued why slavery must remain included the people who launched America’s Independence and wrote the constitution.   By the time Neptune got to Pisces eighty years later, the subject of abolition was so volatile that in 1856 Preston Brooks, a Senator from South Carolina canned and nearly beat to death Senator Charles Sumner an abolitionist from Massachusetts.    Now in this second round of America during Neptune in Pisces, we see the cracks and fissures of a country with roots in slavery.   Much will be processed.  


Interestingly, also in that previous era, in 1849 was the California Gold Rush.  People who had no history in mining packed up, left their homes in America and the world, and headed to California for big Neptune dreams.  Most of them would strike out as miners but many stayed, farmed rich soil, and built towns and businesses.   Now thiscycle of Neptune in Pisces draws attention to Silicon Valley and all the social media giants, like Facebook, leaving many of us to wonder, “Can’t we just turn Santa Clara County back to orchards?  


There will be no exact answers with Neptune, but feelings of hope and despair can show up around the station date.  Perhaps some world story will get our attention, probably around topics ruled by Neptune including the ocean, oil, gas, alcohol, drugs, dance, photography, film, and humanitarian causes.    Global warming events may be in the news.  As Neptune slows down and turns direct, we will have a lot to ponder as to what we learned or more importantly felt in our heart since June 25.   How much will our heart guide us until the next retrograde on June 28, 2022?

Welcome to Scorpio New Moon.  It is tense, emotions will be pulled & tugged, there will be drama and a lot of noisy anger.   But there is also opportunity to let go and build something new.  All you need is your cocoon.  See my article on Margaret Wendt website.
