The Moon sets the emotional tone as she moves through the Zodiac day-to-day. Learning to work with this rhythm will help you align with and relax into an easier flow with the Universe. Every 2 ½ days she leaves one Sign behind to enter the next.

The week begins with the Full Moon in Sagittarius. In looking at the shorter lunar cycle consider what began at the New Moon on November 15th. Whatever you began at that time is now in full illumination. Is this what you had hoped to create? If not, now is the time to pivot your direction, make a clear choice to shift your focus. Consider as well the larger cycle which began with the Gemini New Moon on May 22, 2020. What has become clear from what began six-months ago in the culture and in your own personal life?

The Moon will remain in Gemini throughout Monday and Tuesday. With the Moon in Gemini, you will find comfort in conversations. Gathering information and intellectual explorations are good activities with Gemini afoot.

Wednesday and Thursday as the Moon passes through the family-oriented sign of cancer make it a point to connect with loved ones. Take time to nurture those around you and if you have them, bounce your babies or grand-babies on your knee.

Friday, Saturday, and until 2:47 PM on Sunday the Moon is in dramatically expressive Leo. As the Moon passes through Leo fully display your generosity and openhearted self-expression.

While the Moon was in Cancer you may have wanted to hold your grandchildren tight, now you want to join them in laughter and play. Express yourself in broad strokes, engage in joyful abandon.

At 2:47 PM EDT on Sunday the Moon enters Virgo. Sunday afternoon is a lovely time to prepare for the week ahead. Do the laundry, prepare meals in advance, scrub your kitchen floor.

 

Please keep in mind that transits to your natal planets can override these more universal ones.

SHARING YOUR BELIEFS WILL SUPPORT YOUR PATH FORWARD – Monday, November 30, 2020

In the wee hours of this morning, we encounter the Gemini Full Moon, also a penumbral lunar eclipse. An eclipse greatly intensifies the Full Moon. You can think of it as a Full Moon on steroids.

Eclipses illuminate your path toward your future. This is particularly so if the Full Moon Eclipse aligns with personal planets in your natal chart. The Full Moon occurs at 8° Gemini. For clues to its importance, look to where it falls in your chart and planets you have near 8° of any mutable signs (Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, Pisces).

With the polarity of the Full Moon being Gemini and Sagittarius we are involved in issues of communication and beliefs. This suggests a time to intellectually discuss matters involving our oftentimes emotional beliefs. The conversation itself will likely be cool and non-emotional. This Full Moon shines a light on your higher understanding and your willingness to share what you know and believe.

At 2 PM Mercury, the planet of communication sextiles Saturn, the planet of structure and stability. This supports the communication required by the Full Moon. Say what you need to say with an open heart and mind, and eyes wide open to any what may follow.

_The Gemini Moon is void-of-course from 11:22 PM EST until she enters Cancer late tomorrow evening. This suggests that what occurs during this time will not have much impact._

ENJOY A LIGHTER MIND – Tuesday, December 1, 2020

Today the Moon continues through Gemini keeping the issue of communication in high focus. There are times when it is important to intellectually understand our emotions rather than to wallow in their deep waters. When the Moon is in Gemini, it is so much easier to talk about our emotions than to feel them.

Mercury, the planet that rules Gemini, is moving along at a quick pace these days and our thoughts quickly follow.

Mercury has been in Scorpio since November 10th. Today at 2:51 PM EST it leaves those deep waters behind to enter Sagittarius. Watch as your thoughts lighten and your communications become less guarded, more open. You can stop looking under every rock to discover what is being hidden from your view.

With Mercury now in Sagittarius your focus can follow the path of the archer’s arrow to a higher and broader perspective. As Mercury travels through your natal chart, it points to the changing patterns of your thinking, month-to-month, day-to-day. Mercury will remain in Sagittarius until December 20.

Using the Whole Sign House system you can watch the path of your thinking over time. You can observe your thoughts as they release one area of your life and move to the next.

Enjoy a lighter mind over the next few weeks.

At 10:33 PM EST, the Moon enters Cancer. Sleep like a kitten curled in a sweet nest. Tomorrow will bring you into a closer connection with emotion.

TAKE REFUGE IN CHOCOLATE CAKE – Wednesday, December 2, 2020

The Moon moves through sensitive family-oriented Cancer today. You will find yourself reaching for comfort food and doling it out to those you love. Go ahead and make a pan of brownies and that meal that always spells comfort to family and loved ones.

This is a day to seek a retreat that feels like home, a place of safety, and comfort.

When the Moon sextile Uranus at 1:01 PM EST you may have a sudden understanding of the importance of family. You may have an unforeseen wake-up call regarding your long term comfort.

Don’t let feelings of nostalgia and sadness surprise you. Your thoughts easily turn to loved ones long gone. Your emotions may be heightened while memories and thoughts of the past consume you.

A low level of sadness or sensitivity may hold sway over the day. Take refuge in the simple things that soothe your soul. Indeed, chocolate cake, brownies, or a sweet kitten on your lap can take away that edge of undefined malaise.

PEACE AND QUIET – Thursday, December 3, 2020

The Moon remains in Cancer for one more day. You continue to find ways to nurture and comfort those around you. It is rather easy to fall into the role of caretaker today. However, with the Moon encountering tough conversations with others (aspects) it is challenging to be comfortable in that role.

At 8:29 AM EST with the Moon square Mars, you may feel aggravated and resentful that you are not on the receiving end of care and comfort. Accept that feeling, let it move through you and it will pass. No guilt necessary.

At 9:33 AM EST, as the Moon trine Neptune you release the anger and drift into a soft state of acceptance, softened boundaries, and love.

At 7:22 PM EST as the Moon opposes Pluto, once again resentment may rear its head. Consider this as a message to spend some time engaged in self-care. Turn love on yourself and the resentment will pass.

The upside of today’s challenges helps us tune into what we need for our own emotional healing. Don’t neglect self-care today. The one thing you really need is some peace and quiet.

 

DANCE WITH ABANDON – Friday, December 4, 2020

By the time the day gets underway the Moon has released the sensitivity of the past few days as it enters self-expressive Leo. With the Moon is in Leo it is time to express yourself with playful creativity. During the transit of the Leo Moon, we each want to be seen, appreciated, and loved. We want to show the most sparkling and childlike side of our personalities.

Do your best to release self-consciousness and play with abandon as though no one was watching.

At 9:37 PM EST, the Moon forms a square aspect to Uranus bringing an element of surprise to the end of the day. Plan to be the one to bring that surprise to the table. Turn up the music and dance. Allow your inner child plenty of room to play without restraint. Go ahead and make some of those dancing TikTok videos with your partner.

_The Cancer Moon is void-of-course from 5:30 AM EST until she enters Leo at 7:53 AM EST. This suggests that what occurs during this time will not have much impact._

 

INTANGIBLY DEEP CONNECTION – Saturday, December 5, 2020

I tend to think of days with the Moon in Leo as gifts of joy and pleasure. I understand that not everyone has a similar relationship with Leo but please spend today finding a way to express your brightest side. If you have children or grandchildren in your life spend time with them today. Get down on the floor and play as though you were five.

Yes, of course, the downside of Leo can show up as arrogant and self-absorbed. To avoid that make sure you are using the bright light of the Sun to shine on others. The self-centeredness of Leo shows up when in an unconscious state. The warmth and openhearted love come through when you consider the power of the warmth of Leo to support the growth of others.

Shortly before midnight, Venus forms a trine aspect to Neptune. This aspect builds throughout the day and brings with it, deep intangible love. Boundaries between you and a beloved seem to melt away and you feel as though you are one.

If you go to sleep early set the alarm for midnight, wake up and make love with your partner. This is a time for intense beauty in love, the release of boundaries, and intangible depths of connection.

_The Leo Moon is void-of-course from 5:28 PM EST until she enters Virgo tomorrow afternoon. This suggests that what occurs during this time will not have much impact._

PRODUCTIVITY AND SERVICE – Sunday, December 6, 2020

With the Moon entering Virgo at 2:47 PM EST you will want to get up early to squeeze out every moment of the playful Leo Moon. On the other hand, you may want to lay around in bed and purr loudly like the big cat that Leo represents. Whichever way you decide to enjoy the warmth of that Leo Moon it will come to an end this afternoon.

The Moon enters Virgo at 2:47 PM EST signaling the time to put away your toys and get down to practical and necessary preparations for the week ahead. During the Virgo Moon, we can focus on activities done with precision and efficiency.

Prepare for a quiet afternoon and evening. Don’t allow high expectations to get in the way of simply doing what is in front of you to do. Curb the tendency to be critical of yourself or your loved ones. This is an afternoon that is well-suited to housework and being of service to others. Virgo loves tidy, meticulous, and practical activities.

You may find it ridiculously satisfying to do laundry, wash the dishes, and vacuum the house. Work on projects and issues that benefit from paying particular attention to detail. Wash the dishes, do the laundry, enjoy the feeling of productivity at the end of the day.

_The Virgo Moon is void-of-course until she enters Virgo at 2:47 PM EST. 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. I will consider the final major aspect formed by the Moon prior to its void-of-course, as that aspect holds its influence throughout the void-of-course.
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.

 

“Beginning today, treat everyone you meet as if they were going to be dead by midnight. Extend to them all the care, kindness, and understanding you can muster, and do it with no thought of any reward. Your life will never be the same again.” ~ Og Mandino
