Astrolore’s Weekly Astrology Weather: November 27, 2017 through December 3, 2017

 

4 Simple Steps to Managing Mercury Retrograde:

 

The big news of the week comes on Sunday, December 3rd at 2:43 AM EST, when Mercury turns retrograde at 29° Sagittarius.

“La Petra Camara” by Théodore Chassériau

Take time to prepare for the upcoming three weeks. Mercury will turn direct once again on December 22nd. If you have followed my writing over the years, you are familiar with the best ways to work with Mercury retrograde.

  1. Don’t be afraid, worried, or concerned!
  2. Get a notebook and a pen. Make a list of everything that you have begun but haven’t completed in the past few months.
  3. During the retrograde, get to work! Accomplish what is on this list and only what is on this list.
  4. Don’t be tempted to start new projects, or take on new commitments, new relationships, or new jobs.

Mercury retrograde brings us a great gift, the perfect opportunity to wrap up loose ends!

 

 

“There is no measuring with time, no year matters, and 10 years are nothing. Being an artist means, not reckoning and counting, but ripening like the tree which does not force it sap and stands confident in the storms of Spring without the fear that after them may come no Summer. It does come. But it comes only to the patient, who are there as though eternity lay before them, so unconcernedly still and wide. I learn it daily, learn it with pain to which I am grateful: patience is everything!”

~ Rainer Maria Rilke

 

 

 

THE UNDERPINNINGS OF MAGIC

Monday, November 27, 2017:

In the very early morning hours of Monday, the poetic Pisces Moon joins fanciful Neptune and we start the week in a bit of a dreamy fog. Perhaps, you are just coming back from a long weekend and really would prefer to keep your head under the pillows and sleep the day away.

However, your deeper awareness understands that things are about to get serious as Tuesday’s conjunction of perceptive Mercury to hard-working Saturn can be felt throughout the day. Mercury is moving slowly, as the planet of our thoughts prepares to turn retrograde (December 3 – December 22).

A great use for these energies would be to work on the serious goals you are considering in a free-flowing manner; don’t get into the details, develop the dream!

Prepare an intention statement for your life, work, family, and relationships.

Make sure that you have begun anything you want to work on between now and the end of the year so that projects don’t get stalled during Mercury retrograde.

Do serious work with imagination and understanding of divine magic. All that you are able to accomplish has the underpinnings of magic!

 

 

SERIOUS THINKING – SERIOUS CONVERSATION

Tuesday, November 28, 2017:

In the early hours of Tuesday morning, Mercury and Saturn join together as they begin a new cycle of bringing your attention to conversations, effort, and work that is required.

Once Mercury goes retrograde on Sunday of this week, we will encounter this same aspect on December 6th and again on January 13, 2018. This allows us time to contemplate the serious intent involved. Currently, both planets are in the last degrees of Sagittarius and are asking that we look at very significant issues from the perspective of our highest understanding.

When they join together in January, they’ll be in the early degrees of Capricorn and asking that we go to a deeper place of integrity and responsibility!

For now, consider a serious conversation that must begin; it will be ongoing and will circle back around over the coming months. You can only sweep it under the rug for so long. There is no reason to wait or to fear the outcome.

As Saturn enters Capricorn on December 20th, you will be called to stabilize your thinking, get clear on your direction in work, growth, and your greater understanding of yourself and the world.

At 11:31 PM EST, the Moon leaves dreamy Pisces behind and enters fiercely assertive Aries. It is time to set aside any dreaminess, wistfulness, or escapism; it is time to push forward, to take action with courage and assertiveness.

The Pisces Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 7:08 AM EST until she enters Aries at 11:31 PM EST. Remember, when the Moon is VOC*, there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; it is not good or bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have any significant future impact.

This is a day best suited to working on your own. If you must work within the context of a group, there can be some challenges in determining who the leader is and who the follower is, as someone is going to want to be the boss!

 

“These Women” by Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec

 

 

CLARITY AND CONFIDENCE

Wednesday, November 29, 2017:

Wednesday brings with it free-flowing, fully engaged energies as the feisty Aries Moon forms a lovely trine aspect to the idealistic Sagittarius Sun. If you have planets between 6° – 8° of the Fire Signs (Aries, Leo, or Sagittarius), this will be a very affirmative and expressive day for you. Emotions and intentions are positively aligned, following the same path with joy and determination.

You are probably best off working on your own with the Moon in impatient, independent Aries, although early in the day, it will be easier to take others into consideration.

Wednesday evening brings the aggressive Aries Moon to a direct, challenging square aspect with powerful Pluto. This suggests the possibility of difficult power dynamics or underhanded tactics. Given that this occurs at 6:54 PM EST, it may be wise to spend the evening alone or allow a lot of space and independence to all concerned.

Allow clarity and confidence to embrace you as this courageous Aries Moon grows toward a clever and inquisitive Gemini Full Moon on Sunday.

 

 

LET KIND WORDS END THE DAY

Thursday, November 30, 2017:

With the Moon in Aries, you may find yourself quick to act with courage or anger. You may notice a desire to take risks that normally would not appeal to you.

Early on Thursday morning, the Moon makes aspects to both dynamic Mars and eccentric Uranus. You tend to be focused on yourself and may be impatient with others and easily angered; unfortunately, they are probably feeling the same way. It will be a good morning to keep your thoughts to yourself or at least to think through them carefully before opening your mouth.

At 11:49 AM EST, when the Moon forms a lovely, supportive trine aspect to Saturn, and, shortly thereafter, to Mercury, you will relax and have more awareness of the significance of timing and the feelings of others.

At 3:39 PM EST, the Moon enters Taurus, bringing a steadfast calm to our emotional environment. If you acted without forethought earlier in the day or over the past few days, it will be painfully apparent. You can repair any damage done with levelheaded stability and heartfelt, kind words.

The Aries Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 1:38 PM EST until she enters Taurus at 3:39 PM EST. Remember, when the Moon is VOC*, there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; it is not good or bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have any significant future impact.

 

 

LOVE AND TENSION

Friday, December 1, 2017:

Early on Friday morning, Venus enters freedom-loving Sagittarius. Venus is the planet that represents our deepest values. It represents our love relationships, our relationship to money, resources, and all things of beauty. Venus takes approximately one year to move through all the signs of the zodiac. On her path through the signs, she brings our awareness to the beauty of each sign.

On November 7th, Venus entered Scorpio. What have you learned in these past three weeks about the depth of love and beauty? Have you encountered lessons about how love transforms us, about passion, introspection, and depth?

Now, as Venus moves into Sagittarius, the lessons of love take a lighter turn. It is time to think of love, money, and beauty as a philosophical quest. This is a time to gain understanding even as you seek freedom and idealism in the arms of love.

Venus will remain in Sagittarius until December 25th, when she enters Capricorn to  help us with lessons of integrity and responsibility.

Another highly significant occurrence on Friday is the opposition from dynamic action-taking Mars to revolutionary Uranus. The cycle between Mars and Uranus is approximately a two year cycle of bringing courage and direct action to the unsettling humanitarian needs of our lives and our times.

This cycle began in late February of 2017. Consider carefully what began at that time. Looking back, what is the clarity of your vision, where have your actions brought you now? Consider what changes must be made to bring your understanding of the need for revolutionary action to take place in your own life or in how you support it in the world.

If you have planets or points between 23 and 27 degrees of Cardinal signs (Aries, Cancer, Libra, or Capricorn), this will have direct significance in your personal life. Please share your thoughts! I would love to hear your experiences with this.

The Taurus Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 8:53 PM EST until she enters Gemini at 4:20 PM EST on Saturday. Remember, when the Moon is VOC*, there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; it is not good or bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have any significant future impact.

DEEPEN COMPASSION

Saturday, December 2, 2017:

Saturday brings with it a talkative, enthusiastic Gemini Moon. This bodes well for a social day full of conversations, curiosity, and mental stimulation. A day of rest is not in the cards, you will get that on Sunday. You will feel best with lots of interaction; without it you may end up restless and irritable. Plan for social time with friends and acquaintances.

On Saturday evening, at 9:19 PM EST, expansive Jupiter forms a lovely, flowing trine to dreamy Neptune. This is a major planetary aspect that will occur three times between now and August of 2018. This transit brings with it a sense of hope and an interest in undertaking or deepening a spiritual quest for truth. You will be called over the coming months to seek deeper wisdom and clarity through poetry, music, dreams, visions, meditation, and mystical communion.

Compassion deepens as you see your profound connection to the poor, sick, and suffering of humanity. You may open to the possibility of following your dreams with less need to control the outcome as you are more inclined to trust your intuition. Love and romance may also open a path to higher understanding and compassion. Seek an authentic manner that you can bring love to the suffering of the world. Find a way to be of service to those in need.

The Taurus Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) all day until she enters Gemini at 4:20 PM EST. Remember, when the Moon is VOC*, there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; it is not good or bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have any significant future impact.

 

 

GEMINI FULL MOON – MERCURY TURNS RETROGRADE

Sunday, December 3, 2017:

Three significant events occur on Sunday:

  • By the time you wake up, Mercury has turned retrograde at 29° Sagittarius.
  • At 10:47 AM EST, we come to the Full Moon at 11° Gemini. Remember, the Full Moon brings full illumination to what occurred at the Scorpio New Moon on November 18th. Whatever your focus or whatever you began at the New Moon will show its results with clarity now.
  • At 6:43 AM EST, the Sun squares Neptune, possibly creating a challenge in motivation and enthusiasm. You may feel some confusion and disappointment and your vitality may feel weakened. Allow yourself to rest, watch movies, and expect nothing. Self-care is the most important aspect of your day.

Take time to prepare for the upcoming three weeks until Mercury turns direct once again on December 22nd at 13° Sagittarius. If you have followed my writing over the years, you’re familiar with the best ways to work with Mercury’s retrograde periods.

Here is your reminder:

This week begins with a bang as the Sagittarius Sun trine Uranus offering surprising revelations, innovations, and excitement.  The periods of time that the Moon is VOC are far shorter this week! What a blessing and relief!

On Tuesday, there’s a Full Moon in Gemini which brings clarity on what began at the Sagittarius New Moon two weeks ago.

If you have anything that you want to accomplish before Mercury turns retrograde, get it done as early this week as possible.

Mercury turns retrograde in the early morning hours of Monday, December 19th (at 15° Capricorn) and will remain in retrograde motion until January 8th. Keep in mind the higher purpose of Mercury retrograde is to get caught up on all projects and processes that have been left to gather dust. These are powerful periods of time for accomplishment as long as you do not move into new terrain.

EXCITEMENT

Monday, December 12, 2016:

Monday begins with a flowing trine aspect between the Sagittarius Sun and Uranus (in Aries). This is the high point of the week and the intensity will remain with us throughout Monday and Tuesday.

The full cycle of Uranus and the Sun began in early April of 2016. Did something surprising begin in your life at that time that was exciting or possibly stressful? This is a cycle of intensification and can be experienced as anxiety or excitement, depending on your relationship to Uranus and where the dance began in your personal chart.

What began in April was fully illuminated in mid-October and is now flowing with excitement and anticipation into your life.

In early January, there will be an adjustment to make but for now, enjoy the flow of anticipation that is moving you forward in a surprising new and exciting direction.

At 7:42 AM EST, the Moon enters Gemini, encouraging you to speak your mind, share your ideas and curiosity. This will be a great evening to bring a friend (or a group of friends) to dinner as the Moon forms a lovely flowing trine aspect to Venus at 5:23 PM EST. This will be a delightful evening for friendship and loving connection.

The Taurus Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) until she enters Gemini at 7:42 AM EST. Remember, when the Moon is VOC* there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; not good, not bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have significant future impact.

 

 

EXPANSION

Tuesday, December 13, 2016:

Tuesday brings with it the illuminated Full Moon at 22° Gemini. If it is a clear night go out and stand under that bright light, absorb its full light. Consider the seed that you planted at the Sagittarius New Moon on Tuesday, November 29th. What has grown from that beginning? The conversational Gemini Full Moon encourages us to take full responsibility for our thinking and our communications.

At 2:04 PM EST, when the Moon opposes authoritative Saturn we can look at any communication issues we are having from a perspective of rationality and realism. You are unlikely to get bogged down in restrictive or depressive thinking. The Sun is not only in higher-minded Sagittarius, but also forms a flowing trine aspect to expansive Jupiter, and a sextile aspect (representing opportunities) to eccentric Uranus at 4:18 PM EST.  Expect surprises that will open your mind and thinking in unusual, expansive ways.

The Full Moon is exact at 7:06 PM EST at 22° Gemini. This is another evening to spend with gatherings of friends sharing ideas and open curious communications.

RADIATE LOVE

Wednesday, December 14, 2016:

Unless you begin your day very early, by the time you get going the Moon will be in Cancer (entering at 7:09 AM EST). Your need for comfort, healing, and nurturing may be more pronounced then usual. You will also be more inclined to offer these warm gifts of kindness to your loved ones.

This is a day when most of us would prefer to stay home with our families and those we love most dearly. Remember this as you go about your day. Offer an extra dose of kindness to folks you meet in the course of your everyday activities. We all long to be seen and loved; practice moving love into your heart and out through your eyes to radiate that love and kindness to others.

At 10:17 PM EST, the Moon forms a lovely trine aspect to dreamy Neptune. Light the candles, open up the massage table, and bring yourself and others to a space of soft radiant dreams.

The Gemini Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 12:57 AM EST until she enters Cancer at 7:09 AM EST. Remember, when the Moon is VOC* there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; not good, not bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have significant future impact.

A HUMAN REACTION

Thursday, December 15, 2016:

Thursday’s sensitive Cancer Moon encounters anxiety and power dynamics early in the day as the Mood opposes Pluto at 9:38 AM EST. Do you feel “under the thumb” of someone else’s agenda? Are you holding someone else under your thumb?  Pay attention to where unequal power dynamics exist between yourself and others. These issues will most likely show up in family or domestic relationships.

Consider where clear personal boundaries could support your health and the ultimate health of your relationships.

The anxiety from the morning extends into the afternoon as the Moon forms a square aspect to wild Uranus at 4:36 PM EST. Keep yourself on the move. Give anxiety and overwhelm a physical outlet. Go for a walk, go for a run, allow energy to move through you. These are simple Moon transits that will pass quickly as long as you don’t get caught up in unnecessary, dramatic reactions. Allow aggravations and difficulties to roll on by; do not engage with them by fanning the flames.

It is so easy to tell ourselves not to engage with things that trigger us; it is not easy to do. It is so easy to fly off the handle and wonder later how it happened. In these instances, show yourself the deepest level of compassion. What a human reaction! Forgive yourself and others with love and kindness.

When the Moon becomes a VOC* at 4:36 PM EST allow yourself to rest. Keep your evening calm and quiet.

The Cancer Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 4:36 PM EST until she enters Leo on Friday at 8:14 AM PST. Remember, when the Moon is VOC* there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; not good, not bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have significant future impact.

 

 

REGAL STRENGTH

Friday, December 16, 2016:

The Moon enters playful Leo at 8:14 AM EST. Following Thursday’s emotional roller coaster you may feel a bit tentative about reaching out for the pleasure of Leo energy. There is no need to hurry.

As long as you did not get pulled too strongly into the turmoil of Thursday, Friday should unfold with simple pleasures. Connect with your most loyal companions; express an open generosity of the heart. There are no major aspects on Friday. This allows us time to cultivate and relax into the warmth of Leo.

Consider the big cats (lions, leopards, tigers, cheetahs) laying in the sun, regal and content in their strength and inner confidence. Seek out your own creativity, generosity, loyalty, warmth, and vital self-expression.

PROJECTS & PARTIES

Saturday, December 17, 2016:

The Moon is in dramatic, creative Leo all day on Saturday. You will feel strongly supported by her positive connections to expansive Jupiter, stabilizing Saturn, and unpredictable Uranus.

This is the perfect day for a creative holiday project and the perfect evening for a holiday gathering or party.  Express your full, unabashed creativity. Dress up and show off. J

At 7:57 PM EST, the Moon trine Uranus suggests fun, excitement, along with unusual surprises and opportunities. If you’re invited to a party, say yes. Allow vitality, generosity, and openhearted self-expression to rule the day.

You may notice the beginnings of that familiar feeling that comes with Mercury retrograde. Perhaps, you’ve been aware of it for several days. Something seems to be slightly ‘off’ regarding scheduling and communications.

Mercury turns retrograde on Monday December 19th. Think about how you are going to utilize that three-week period of time. Begin to make a list of all the things left undone that you will now be able to catch up on.

 

 

PREPARATIONS

Sunday, December 18, 2016:

Sunday begins with a lovely, flowing conversation between the expressive Leo Moon and the optimistic Sagittarius Sun. You will awaken with the memory of Saturday night’s events still holding you in their warm glow.

At 11:56 AM EST, with the Leo Moon opposing aggressive Mars some agitation is likely to make itself known. Perhaps, you realize the mess you have to clean up from last night’s party, literally or figuratively. Perhaps, you are reminded that you got a little carried away with the fun. The aggravation will pass quickly and at 12:52 PM EST when the Moon enters Virgo you will settle down to the work, effort and efficiency that is required as you prepare for the week ahead.

Sunday afternoon is best spent in service to the smooth functioning of the coming days. If you are celebrating, you probably have a long list of things that must be accomplished. Sunday afternoon offers a wonderful opportunity to actually enjoy crossing many tasks off your to do list.

Enjoy a quiet evening. Monday morning Mercury turns retrograde.

The Leo Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 11:56 AM EST until she entered her go at 12:52 PM EST. Remember, when the Moon is VOC* there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; not good, not bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have significant future impact.

CLARIFY PERSONAL VALUES OF LOVE AND RESOURCES

Monday, November 23, 2015:

Last Friday, Venus made contact with Pluto bringing us into contact with our need to transform deeply held personal values. Another perspective is presented, a different way to see possibly unacknowledged ways of understanding those values. Where do your habitual beliefs come from? Do the values you hold truly represent your most authentic beliefs?

Consider what beliefs or values regarding love or money began in early March of this year. Did something unsettling or anxiety producing occur that changed your perspective on your deepest values?

Whatever began at that time comes to the point of its full illumination. Have you made the best decisions along the way? If you took appropriate, courageous action at the end of March you will find yourself at a high point of inspiration; your values regarding money and love will shine with clarity. If you are at a point of deep anxiety, you probably took actions that led you along a path that no longer resonates with your deepest truths.

The Moon enters Taurus at 11:25 AM EST bringing stability to your understanding of the path ahead.

“Happiness in not something ready made. It comes from our own actions.” ~ Dalai Lama XIV

 

 

CLARIFY COMMUNICATIONS

Tuesday, November 24, 2015:

We have very busy days this week. On Tuesday with Mars sextile Saturn, you are aware of an upcoming goal, something that will begin in the summer of 2016. Begin now to look at the steps ahead, consider how to approach this goal steadily, seeking persistent progress.

Another cycle begins today, as Mercury is conjunct Saturn. Your thoughts seek practical reality. This is the beginning of a cycle of stabilizing your mind, thoughts, and ability to communicate. This may be an excellent evening to finally say what must be said. Over the coming months, the results of that communication will become clear.

You will probably not need the reminder, but it is important to be kind and very patient as you deliver communications that you are not sure if they will be happily received.

“It does not do to leave a live dragon out of your calculations, if you live near him.” ~ J. R. R. Tolkien

 

 

FULL MOON IN GEMINI: TALK ABOUT IT          

Wednesday, November 25, 2015:

The Full Gemini Moon arrives at 5:45 PM EST reminding us to look for that spot of clarity that has grown over the past two weeks. Where did you plant a seed at the New Moon that is now fully grown? Do you see how significant your communications, and the results of those communications are at this time? On Wednesday, Mercury square Neptune adding an ethereal element to your thinking and your stories. Your dreams may be idealistic, pushing you forward with imagination and hope. With Mercury also sextile Mars, you are given an opportunity to work with determination to reach your dreams.

At 12:16 PM EST, the Moon enters Gemini. You will likely feel excessive, impulsive energy. Watch your words, play with your imagination and allow yourself to take quick action of what lands in your lap. Use excessive energy physically.

REALITY MEET ILLUSIONS – THANKSGIVING

Thursday, November 26, 2015:

Structure meets delusion. On Thursday, Saturn squares Neptune (due to the upcoming retrograde this aspect will reoccur in June and again September of 2016). This is an aspect with long-term impact as each of the planets move quite slowly. Reality may meet illusions, and our imagination and dreams meet stability and stabilization, during this time period.

If you struggle with addictions or have something to hide (from yourself or others), this will not be easy as you encounter circumstances that may be difficult to comprehend. Misunderstandings, bewilderment, and even deception may arise. This is a time to look clearly at where you are hiding from yourself and finally gain clarity on your addictions or other ways that you do not look clearly at the reality of your situation. This is a powerful time to take control of your addictions or others wayward actions, that keep you from living your true authentic life.

Much depends on how you deal with the facts of your situation as they are presented now. You may learn a great deal about the importance of integrity and attentiveness in your life. This is an aspect that you will be working with for a long time.

“Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect.” ~ Mark Twain

 

 

A DAY FOR FAMILY CONNECTION

Friday, November 27, 2015:

Friday presents a day of further contemplation on the issues we talked about on Thursday. That aspect between Saturn and Neptune is in full swing in our lives for the upcoming year. So get clear on where you hide your deepest self. Allow full view of your illusions.

The Moon is in Gemini VOC* until she enters Cancer at 2:27 PM EST. This is a wonderful afternoon or evening to spend with family. Go ahead and allow a bit of nostalgia. Yesterday, Thanksgiving itself, may have turned out more difficult than Friday.

Maintain a low-key family centered evening. Enjoy!

“Success is not final, failure is not fatal: It is the courage to continue that counts.” ~ Winston Churchill

 

 

KEEP IT LIGHT

Saturday, November 28, 2015:

If you spent Thursday and Friday with family, it may be time to head back to your own home on Saturday, or to pack up the relatives and say farewell.

The Moon continues through Cancer but she is not having a lovely day. In her travels on Saturday, she forms stressful connections to Mars, Pluto, and Uranus. Any underlying issues within the family could easily come to a head. Your best results will be to get the day off to a great start by connecting with everyone in your family with kindness and love. Keep it relatively light and be ready move forward into an evening alone.

“I always wonder why birds choose to stay in the same place when they can fly anywhere on the earth. Then, I ask myself the same question.” ~ Haran Yahya

 

 

LEARN FROM THIS TENSION

Sunday, November 29, 2015:

The Moon continues through Cancer until 7:47 PM EST when she joyfully steps into Leo. Leo Moon is delighted to have her beloved Sun in the confident glow of Sagittarius. They are ready to play together.

However, the tension, (that is the square of the planets), between Saturn and Neptune is palatable. The Sagittarius Sun pushes his way into the mix, demanding answers to his rather blunt questions.

The Sun squares Neptune and conjunct Saturn on Sunday showing you glimmers of the issue at hand. Neptune asks where your self-interests may be inappropriate or unhealthy. Saturn asks you to do the hard work necessary to create a structure that will move you from that self-interest to deeply intuitive compassion and understanding. This is not the time to avoid or put off your own self growth and understanding.

“The greatest enemy of knowledge is not ignorance, it is the illusion of knowledge” ~ Stephen Hawking
