AN ANNOUNCEMENT WITH GRATITUDE

Please read!
On this Thanksgiving week, I am truly grateful for each one of you who follows my work and supports me in all the ways that you do. You read my words, send encouraging emails, book appointments for readings and consultations, and some of you become my students and move on to become consulting astrologers yourselves! I am delighted with your involvement, regardless of its extent or duration! Thank you.

Mundane Astrology vs Natal Astrology

Tracking the movement of the planetary bodies and how these movements impact humans is called Mundane Astrology. In using Mundane astrology in this way, the considerations are quite general as we are speaking to the public rather than individuals. This branch of astrology provides a way to connect with the public on a daily basis which is why you see so much of it on social media.
 
I find Mundane astrology fascinating and it is an integral tool of my craft. However, my true love is Natal astrology which is the study and exploration of an individual’s birth chart. Natal astrology is intensely personal as it reflects the unique life and path of each individual. Natal astrology does not lend itself so easily to daily posts directed to the general public.

 

About Astrolore’s Consultations and Recorded Readings

 

My True Love of Natal Astrology: Consulting Clients & Mentoring Students

Writing this blog takes an inordinate amount of my time and I find that using my time this way is beginning to wear thin. I know that my time and attention are best used in other ways.
 
I love being of service to folks in the exploration and deep understanding of their unique lives with consultations and readings. My other deep love is in teaching a new generation of astrologers as they develop the skills to become consulting astrologers. I am writing a book to support folks in developing the skills needed to become effective and compassionate astrologers. I am currently mentoring a handful of students and have space in my schedule for one or two more.
 
My mentorship is for folks who want to become consulting astrologers or for astrologers who want to become better at their craft. The mentorship program can be adapted for other applications as well. If you want to dig very deep and understand the language behind consultations and readings, the mentorship will work for you as well.

 

 

I Am Not Planning to Pull the Plug on This Blog Anytime Soon. However…

However, you can expect some changes in the coming months as I move into the next phase of my work. It is time to focus on what truly matters, working with you, my clients, and students.

SENSITIVITY LEADS TO A DASH OF EXCITEMENT

The week begins with the Moon in Cancer, suggesting a day of sensitivity and moodiness. You may wish you could close the door and hunker down with family and loved ones cuddled close. Because of Cancer’s reputation for such deep sensitivity, it can be easy to forget how strong Cancer is.

In our strongly patriarchal culture sensitivity is often misunderstood and taken for weakness. Make no mistake, as a cardinal sign Cancer is no shrinking violet. If you ever need a fierce defender, look no further than your family members or friends who have a strong Cancer component in their charts.

Cancer is ruled by the Moon which symbolizes mother and mothering in a natal chart. Think of the sensitivity and the protective fierceness of any mother. This will help you understand Cancer. If you have a copy of your chart in the Whole Sign House system, look for the house that holds Cancer and you’ll understand the area of your life where you are deeply sensitive and protective. 

At 10:59 PM EST, the Moon forms a sextile aspect to Uranus. If you are awake anticipate some emotional excitement, otherwise, enjoy your quirky dreams.

BRING THE PIE

A flowing trine aspect from today’s Cancer Moon to Mars at 7:25 AM EST gives you plenty of energy to get started on the day. You will be happiest if you are able to tend to home and family for the bulk of the day. If that isn’t possible it will help to have the awareness that everyone you encounter is probably feeling more vulnerable than usual
Food is an effective way to calm others while the Moon is in this comfort-seeking sign. This is the day that bringing muffins (or better yet, a pie) to the office really will help soothe any ruffled feathers. Go ahead and allow yourself to reach for the comfort food without guilt or remorse. 
At 3:51 PM EST, the Moon forms a flowing trine aspect to Neptune. Head home early or at least take a long restful break as your dreaminess is likely to overtake any attempt at accomplishment.

EXPAND YOUR UNDERSTANDING

Today begins with the Moon still in family-oriented Cancer. Enjoy connections at the breakfast table but be ready for a late morning shift. 
 
Things will change rapidly as both Mercury and the Moon enter dynamic expressive fire signs.
 
At 10:36 AM EST, Mercury enters Sagittarius the sign of philosophical growth and the expansion of understanding. At 10:59 AM EST, the Moon enters showy, dynamic Leo. With both the Moon and Mercury in fire signs, they form a trine aspect between them just after 11 AM EST.
 
This suggests that there is a lot to say and a lot to be expressed with dynamic drive and excitement. Today is ultimately about using the perspective of your voice and your heart to engage in conversations that matter. Mercury is the planet that represents communication, the ability to express thoughts and ideas. Keeping one’s opinions and ideas to oneself is not likely today. Expect folks to be very outspoken today.
 
This evening is great for dramatic playful conversations with friends. Sharing ideas and expanding your understanding should be your goal.
 
Mercury will remain in Sagittarius until December 13th. You will hear so many opinions in the coming weeks. 
_The Cancer Moon is void-of-course from 2:46 AM EST until she enters the Leo at 10:59 AM EST. This suggests that what occurs during this time will not have much impact._

CHOOSE GRATITUDE AND LOVE

Let’s be clear that gratitude isn’t always easy. Even when we know something is the best thing for us we may rail against it. The kind of easy effortless gratitude of simplicity is likely to be rather elusive today. 
 
The Leo Moon itself is all about gratitude. Leo is ruled by the Sun and turns our attention to playfulness and generosity. However, today’s Leo Moon engages in rough conversations with three major players. Saturn, the planet of restriction, Uranus, the planet of upheaval, and Mars, the planet of action and discord are all involved.
 
In the wee hours of the morning, the Leo Moon is confronted by opposition to Saturn. Perhaps you wake with the concern that your connections with others will feel challenging and difficult. Mid-morning, the Moon squares Uranus suggesting an unexpected ‘fly in the ointment’. If you are cooking for the holiday meal pay attention that you don’t burn anything. As we move toward the end of the day, the Moon approaches a square aspect to Mars making it easy for all of us to feel some aggravation. Don’t engage in the difficulty. 
 
If you encounter unexpected pushback or discord when you are only trying to have fun, don’t take it personally. The story will be quite different by tomorrow.
 
The best way to deal with the challenge of today is twofold. First, make the conscious choice to remain focused on gratitude. Even if an interaction with a family member or friend leaves you feeling overwhelmed or annoyed, choose gratitude. Be grateful for what you are learning about how to manage yourself in less-than-ideal situations. You can choose gratitude and love in every interaction.

RESIST OVERSPENDING

If your Thanksgiving gathering was not all that you had hoped it would be, go back and re-engage with any folks you may have struggled with yesterday. Today is a great day to bury the hatchet, soothe the savage beast, or otherwise make amends.
 
In the US, the day after Thanksgiving has become a holiday in itself, a holiday of overindulgence and overspending. Is this a wise thing to do today? At 11:24 AM EST, the Leo Moon opposes Jupiter suggesting the exact tendencies that marketers are hoping you will engage in. I recommend that you leave your credit cards at home, slow down, and hold off on unnecessary purchases.
 
If you come to Astrolore’s website, you will see an offer for discounted gift certificates. What you will not see is Astrolore engaging in aggressive marketing for the holidays. If you need a discount, at any time of year, for consultations or recorded readings, reach out and ask. I will always do my best to accommodate your needs and circumstances. 
 
At 9:11 PM EST, the Moon leaves Leo behind and enters Virgo. This settles us down as we look forward to the next few days where simple kindness with be the most important thing on your agenda. If you overspent today, the tendency will be to beat yourself up a bit. Don’t let self-criticism keep you awake.
 
_The Leo Moon is void-of-course from 11:24 AM EST until she enters Virgo at 9:11 PM EST. This suggests that what occurs during this time will not have much impact._

PREPARE TO SHIFT OR RELEASE

Today’s Virgo Moon reaches the Last Quarter Phase at 5:28 AM EST.  At the Last Quarter Phase, the Sun and Moon are in a square aspect to each other. Next week on Saturday, December 5th we come to the powerful New Moon Solar Eclipse at 12 degrees Sagittarius.
Be sure to watch the video Jennie and I will make talking about that!  The Last Quarter Moon comes at the midpoint between last week’s Taurus Full Moon Lunar Eclipse and next week’s New Moon Solar Eclipse. At this time, from our perspective on earth, we see half the disc of the Moon. Half of the Moon is lit by the Sun and half is immersed in shadow. If you are up in the middle of the night you will see it rise. Looking high above near dawn you will find it at its highest point, it will then set near midday.
 
Consider what has been building over the past 3 weeks. What has grown as far as it is able and is now beginning to fade? This phase encourages you to turn down the flame, knowing that all necessary forward action has been done. All that is left is the process of release. Reorganize your priorities and prepare to shift or release an emotional stance that has completed the job it was intended for.
This may be a bit of a fussy day, get the house tidied up. Clean some closets or organize what you will need to prepare for the holidays ahead. Pull down your holiday ornaments and get rid of what you no longer need. Don’t let emotional attachment get in the way of a tidy life.

At 7:19 PM EST, the Moon trine Uranus adds a bit of excitement and spice to the evening. Take advantage of this in social interactions to expand your understanding of others and the world around you.

BIG OPINIONS, ACTIVE MIND

The week comes to a close with the steadfast Virgo Moon forming lovely aspects to Venus, Mars, and Pluto. This supports a solid day for rolling up your sleeves and making preparations for the week ahead. Home tasks such as cleaning, tidying, or organization will feel good and you will be happy to have put in the effort.  The only challenge the Virgo Moon has is an opposition to Neptune at 10:47 AM EST. Take a break from your exertions to enjoy a nap or take a walk in nature.
 
At 11:39 PM EST, the Sun and Mercury join together at 7degrees Sagittarius. Look to the house that holds Sagittarius in your chart and you will have a pretty good idea of what is capturing your attention over the next day or two. You can anticipate a lot of mental energy and big opinions. Be careful not to overwhelm others with your impatience and don’t demand that others agree with your ideas on these topics. Be clear that you are not always right! 

_The Virgo Moon is void-of-course from 7:03 PM EST until she enters Libra in the wee hours of tomorrow morning. This suggests that what occurs during this time will not have much impact._

In these weekly reports, I explore 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 give rise to fleeting moods. 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.
