Inner Wisdom & Optimism


This week’s headline items: Neptune still stations all week, and on Monday, Jupiter starts its Station phase again, slowing down as it gets ready to end its 4-month Retrograde phase. Venus changes signs from Scorpio to Sagittarius on Tuesday night/Wednesday very early morning, and Mercury follows suit very early on Thursday morning. The last Quarter Moon in Leo becomes exact on Wednesday morning; Jupiter’s station intensifies on Friday; and the Balsamic Moon phase begins on Sunday morning.

There will be three Moon Void of Course (VoC) phases this week: Monday early morning (a little over 2 hours), Wednesday evening (for a little over 1 hour), and Saturday very early morning (for a little over 2 hours).

Now, this week’s Forecast…

Monday, November 14th:

Monday is a big day (astrologically speaking)! The Moon remains in protective, nurturing Cancer until 7:48am EST. 

Monday early morning, at 5:41am EST, we enter a Moon VoC that will last a little over 2 hours, until 7:48am EST. Use this intuitive time to trust your intuitive sensing and allow whatever comes up to be beneficial for you. Release anything that feels outdated or stuck in the past. It is also a great time to explore spiritual, intuitive, or creative endeavors, and to lend loving and nurturing support to others.

As always, with a Moon VoC, as best as you can, don’t start anything brand-new, stick to routine things, or go with the flow. You may also want to plan Monday morning ahead of time.

Monday morning, at 7:48am EST, the Moon enters fun and attention-loving Leo, where it will journey until Wednesday evening. We may lack objectivity and struggle with backing down or compromising. We all love to be admired — or at the very least acknowledged — for our greatness 🙂

So, hand out some compliments — let people know how proud you are of them, and tell them how much you love them. Come from the heart in this and all other things; be honest and authentic as best you can. Fun, games, and romance are a big part of this energy. You might also enjoy spending time with little ones.

If there are no “outer children” around, how about getting in touch with your “inner child” — it’s easier for the next two-and-a-half days. What are you most grateful for today? What would be heaps and heaps of fun? What would be so much fun that you let out a tiny squeak just thinking of it?

This Moon placement also starts the build-up towards the last Quarter Moon (exact on Wednesday morning).

Monday late evening, an opportune Mercury/Pluto aspect becomes exact at 9:27pm EST. We started to feel this aspect build from last week, Saturday evening (Nov. 12th) on; it will remain strong until this Wednesday evening. This aspect provides an opportunity to restructure or rebuild areas of our lives that need it.

It’s also an opportunity to do more research toward building something meaningful, all while learning about our authentic motivations; as best as you can, dig deeper — and keep your heart open — a fearful approach is not recommended.

Ask yourself: How might releasing any fearful or “worst case scenario” thinking help deepen my connection to whatever I feel deeply passionate about, out there in the world? Is it at least possible that letting go of “old”, lower-vibration thought forms colored by fear or self-protection would support me in effortlessly reaching my long-term goals?

Remember: opportunities aren’t “automatic”… we have to go after them, and realize them.

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (MC), or any personal planets in 23-29 degrees of Scorpio, Capricorn, Pisces, or Virgo? If so, you may be more aware of this opportunity — the same applies for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Gemini, Virgo, or Scorpio (Mercury is the ruler of Gemini and Virgo; Pluto rules Scorpio).

Also, Monday late evening, a harmonious Sun/Neptune aspect becomes exact at 10:43pm EST. We started to feel this aspect build from last week, Friday evening (Nov. 11th); it will remain strong until this Thursday evening (Nov. 17th). This aspect could be tremendously supportive when it comes to dissolving what no longer serves us — especially anything that relates to traumas from the past and fears that keep us stuck, or disconnected from others, or that simply keep us from a fully passionate life.

Our intuition, imagination, and inspiration all seem to be “zeroed in”. We go beyond “tolerance”, to lovingly embrace differences in others, and give where it’s needed with open hearts and hands. All of this also feeds into any creative and spiritual endeavors that start around this time.

Ask yourself: what am I ready to release that has kept me from living a passionate life? Who am I ready to forgive? Do I make it onto that list? What if forgiveness wasn’t even a requirement? What if I could simply choose to move on, because I understand the power of acceptance and compassion, towards myself and others?

Do you have your Ascendant, Career point (or one or more personal planets) in 20-26 degrees of Scorpio, Pisces, or Cancer? If so, you will be most blessed by this aspect. This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Leo or Pisces (the Sun rules Leo; Neptune is the ruler of Pisces). 

Also, on Monday, Jupiter starts to slow down again (stations) at 28.5-29 degrees of Pisces, preparing to come to a halt on Nov. 23rd (after having been retrograde for the past 4 months). This station will last until Nov. 30th.

When a planet stations, we start to be more fully aware of its energy; this awareness helps us to get more connected to those energies as they exist within us. We get to see where we need to embrace them more fully, so that we can use them in a healthy way, without getting lost in the lower vibrations of their expression.

Jupiter represents our desire to seek insight through knowledge and exploration. Some of this planet’s keywords are morality, gratitude, hope, honor, and the law. Jupiter is the planet of possibility, optimism, wisdom, understanding, and growth (including mental and spiritual growth). Jupiter is also associated with our sense of humor, generosity, tolerance, goodwill, and mercy.

The lower expressions of Jupiter include irresponsibility — too much of a good thing, leading to blind optimism, excess, and overindulgence.

We have been connecting internally to our wisdom and ability to grow for the past four months. What did you discover about your ability to learn and grow since June 28th? Do you have a better understanding of your own inner wisdom and optimism — and how to access it? How could those discoveries change how you connect to your intuitive knowing?

Those of us who have any of our personal planets (or our Ascendent) in the following: 26-29 degrees of Pisces, Virgo, Gemini, Sagittarius; or 0-1 degree of Aries, Libra, Cancer, or Capricorn will be more affected by this station. This is also true for those of us with their Ascendent or Sun-sign in Sagittarius (Jupiter is the ruler of Sagittarius, so those folks will always be affected more strongly by Jupiter’s movements and aspects).
