Just the Dailies:
KEEP YOUR BELIEFS TOP OF MIND
Monday, November 19, 2018:
With the Moon still in Aries, you will be happiest if you wake up alone this morning. Everything is best done in a solitary manner from the perspective of Aries. In the close company of others, the strong forward energy can so easily turn into conflict.
Add to that simple fact, which can generally be pushed away without too much difficulty, the fact that Mars forms a square aspect to Jupiter at 8:30 PM EDT and you could encounter the perfect storm. Indeed, what exactly does that mean? You may have the energy to push forward with great determination. On the other hand, you may bite off more than you can chew.
Any forward momentum that feels insistent is worth taking a second look at over the next day or so. Are you pushing too much? Pushing forward versus holding back may present a tender balance. Whatever the issues in question, look carefully and move forward with eyes wide open keeping your overriding values and beliefs top of mind.
A SETTLED EVENING
Tuesday, November 20, 2018:
Tuesday brings us another day with the Moon in assertive, self-directed Aries, keeping your attention firmly affixed to your personal needs and desires.
With the Moon in Aries, you may feel more courageous and daring than at other times. You may be more inclined to act in ways that you would normally shy away from.
At 5:47 PM EDT, the Moon forms a challenging square with Uranus, you may find yourself or others inclined to selfishness or impatience. Get it out of your system at the gym or in another solitary manner.
At 6:43 PM EDT, the Moon shifts into stable, settled, Earth-based Taurus offering a more comfortable emotional tone for the next few days.
With the Moon in Taurus, you may find yourself more connected with the natural world and your own sensual body. You will want to slow down, take your time in all that you do and be fully present in the here and now. There is no need to hurry, no need to start anything new, and perfectly fine to put off until tomorrow anything that does not need to be done now.
This is an evening to indulge in good food, beautiful surroundings, and massage or lovemaking.
The Aries Moon is VOC* for a brief period of time between 5:47 PM EDT until she enters Taurus at 6:43 PM EDT. While the Moon is VOC*, there will be no result from anything that is begun. This simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have any significant future impact.
PREPARE FOR A FEAST
Wednesday, November 21, 2018:
Early on Wednesday morning, the Taurus Moon forms an aspect of ease to Saturn, bringing a sense of reverence to all that you do. Your preference today will be to take your time and spend a good portion of the day in touch with the natural world.
This is a time for practicality and patience. Allow yourself time to get outdoors for a walk in nature, indulge all your senses with music, physical contact, beauty, cooking and tasting food.
Given that Thursday is Thanksgiving here in the US, many of you will spend the day in preparations for the feast ahead. This is a natural fit for the astrological weather. Cooking is a great way to be in touch with practical reality and the sensuality of pleasure. Enjoy cooking with friends, family, and especially family.
PLEASURE AND INCREASED UNDERSTANDING
Thursday, November 22, 2018:
Before you wake on Thursday morning, the Sun enters Sagittarius moving toward the Winter Solstice just a month away. As the Sun leaves Scorpio behind, our need and desire for deep intimate connection shifts toward a desire to see beyond ourselves into the wider world.
We want to see our lives with a wider lens and from a broader perspective. While the Sun moves through Sagittarius (a mutable Fire sign), we take steps to gain awareness of the world at large. This is a time to expand your horizons, go on a trip, seek out an adventure, and accept new ways of thinking that give you a big picture view.
What house in your chart is being lit up by the Sun over the coming month?
Given that this is Thanksgiving in the US, the Sagittarius Sun offers the ability to deal with differences within your family more easily if you are able to move beyond self-interest and seek understanding of others’ perspectives.
The Moon continues through Taurus (until 11:11 PM EDT), perfect for Thanksgiving. The pleasure of food and the presentation of the meal will hold the focus of the day.
Don’t talk about politics or cultural issues unless you are speaking to the choir. Make this day about pleasure and the expansion of understanding.
The Full Moon occurs shortly after midnight in Gemini. As you fall asleep on Thursday night, allow a fullness to support your sleep. The holiday is past, bringing with it an internal illumination that may be clear when you awake on Friday morning.
The Taurus Moon is VOC* from 4:59 AM EDT until she enters Gemini at 11:11 PM EDT. While the Moon is VOC*, there will be no result from anything that is begun. This simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have any significant future impact.

GEMINI FULL MOON – AVOID BLACK FRIDAY SHOPPING
Friday, November 23, 2018:
What do you understand on Friday morning that was not clear 24 hours ago? With the Moon now in Gemini and having reached Full at 12:40 AM EDT embrace your new understanding and allow it to offer its benefits moving forward.
The Moon, now in Gemini, encourages light social gatherings, the exchange of information, communication, and curiosity throughout the day.
Avoid Black Friday. With the Moon forming challenging aspects to Jupiter, Mars, Mercury, and Neptune along with Mercury being retrograde, this is not the time to shop for gifts. The experience would likely be fraught with frustration and difficulties.
Far better to go out to brunch with friends or have a small gathering at home. With the Moon continuing its path through Gemini, go in the direction of lighthearted engagements’ with easygoing friends.
Tell and listen to the stories of those you engage with. Enjoy a simple friendly day of conversation and connection.
MOVE YOUR DREAMS FORWARD
Saturday, November 24, 2018:
Another easygoing day is available on Saturday with the Gemini Moon wanting to engage in chattering connections and conversations. The Sagittarius Sun and Gemini Moon is a great combination as our vision is broad and expansive and we will want to talk about it all. Open your mind and talk about all that you find there!
At 8:08 PM EDT, Neptune, the planet of dreams, sensitivity, and imagination stations direct at 13° Pisces. Neptune has been retrograde since mid-June. Have there been dreams on hold since then? Are you ready to move forward on those dreams? Look to the area that holds Pisces in your chart for more information.
HOLD YOUR LOVED ONES CLOSE
Sunday, November 25, 2018:
When you wake on Sunday the Moon has entered Cancer, settling you into a day where it will be nice to envelop yourself in family and hold your closest loved ones near.
When the Moon is in sensitive Cancer, you will reach for comfort food and the safety of family and intimate loved ones. You may want to retreat to the places you feel most at home. You may feel more nostalgic and domestic than usual.
Your emotions are heightened and you may be consumed with memories and thoughts of the past. This may be a very moody day; go ahead and indulge in that chocolate cake or whatever other goodies soothe your soul.
The Gemini Moon is VOC* for a brief period of time between 12:32 AM EDT until she enters Cancer at 1:37 AM EDT. While the Moon is VOC*, there will be no result from anything that is begun. This simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have any significant future impact.
“We use astrology most constructively and creatively when we gain from it a sense of what is possible for us at the highest levels of our potentialities. Seeing that, the challenges is then to keep our eyes open to life itself, to be able to respond appropriately when some event or change of circumstances…”
~ Dane Rudhyar, Astrological Aspects – a Process Oriented Approach, 1980.
* In these weekly reports, I am exploring the major aspects formed by transit between the planets. I do not consider every aspect that the Moon makes each day as they can be numerous and are often fleeting moods. I will consider the final major aspect formed by the Moon prior to its VOC* time, as that aspect holds its influence throughout the VOC*.
* The aspects under consideration: conjunctions, sextiles, squares, trines, and oppositions.
* The planets I work with: Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto.
