Full Moon in Leo — the article

On Jan. 28th at 2:16pm EST, the Moon opposes the Sun in 9 degrees of Leo — and this month’s Full Moon becomes exact. Relationships of all kinds are highlighted.

All Full Moons offer opportunities for us to see things in a new light; they also guide us away from polarization and division, toward balance and integration.

Ask yourself: How far have I come since setting Intentions back on January 13th’s New Moon? What am I aware of at this time?

With the Sun in Aquarius until Feb. 18th, we seek balance; the balance in question here involves the Aquarius-Leo polarity.

As a Member of my online community, if you’d like to learn more about this month’s Full Moon, click here to watch my video.

Aquarius represents a unique vision and approach to life. The classic Aquarian vision is one of interconnected equality — paradoxically, we’re reminded at the same time that the power of unity lies in diversity. Leo, on the other hand, is all about our individual self-expression, creativity, ability to connect to the heart, inner joy.

This Full Moon is our chance to make a more conscious effort to embrace, integrate, and explore the lighter/higher vibrations of Leo. This is a courageous, optimistic, and self-expressed sign, that represents our capacity to love — and our willpower. It signifies the quest to live from our center, our core, our truth — with joy in our heart.

This Full Moon reminds us that everyone has the power to make a difference in the world, small or large — and when we join together, that power grows exponentially. Ask yourself: How could I best honor both my individual self-expression and my interconnectedness with the world? How am I adding my voice (in small ways and large)?

As with all Full Moons, there’s a shadow side to be discussed — the shadow of both signs involved in this Full Moon — and please note that the shadow side of any sign is usually not as comfortable to look at or easy to embrace.

Aquarius‘s shadow side might show up as…

Freedom & “Space” — Forecast for Jan. 18th – 24th

 

This week’s headline items: the Sun changes signs from Capricorn to Aquarius on Tuesday afternoon, the first Quarter Moon Taurus becomes exact on Wednesday afternoon, and there will only be two Moon VoC phases this week: Wednesday very early morning (for almost 10.5 hours) and Friday afternoon (a little over 10 hours).

Before we get to this week’s forecast:

Now, this week’s Forecast…

 

Monday, Jan. 18th:

Monday, the Moon remains in creative, sensitive Pisces and VoC until 2:07am EST; at that timethe Moon moves into pioneering, fast-paced Aries. It will journey there until Wednesday early afternoon. Life is an adventure, we’re more open to new ideas, and have great enthusiasm for new projects. Patience is certainly not our strong suit at this time, but we can decide quickly, and act immediately.

Our independence and dynamism are important to us right now, so we may find it hard to be disciplined or accept advice at this time; in general, our responses to others tend to be more assertive or even aggressive. If you find your foot tapping, try hitting the gym, or finding other ways to burn off the body’s excess energy.

Monday late morning, we get an opportunity to take actions on our personal goals, in a very concrete way and bring a new level of focus and authenticity to our future visions

Monday early afternoonhas lots of potential for healing around family, the “mother archetype”, home, and our past in general. We may feel more sensitive and insecure about what we identity with, and around our ability to be assertive; this gives us the opportunity to give ourselves some compassion, acceptance and nurturing in the face of our sensitivities and limitations.

Monday afternoon: we have an opportunity to connect with like-minded people and move a project forward that serves our community. It’s time for a new perspective: What new vantage point could we take? What needs to be considered, so we can…

January 11th – 17th

Stay Open to the New and Unexpectedly Different

 

This week’s headline items: the New Moon in Capricorn becomes exact Tuesday night/Wednesday very early morning, Uranus ends its 5-month Retrograde phase (in Taurus) on Thursday very early morning, Mercury enters its pre-Shadow phase on Friday; and the first of the “big” Uranus Squares becomes exact on Sunday early evening.

 

There will be three Moon VoC phases this week: Wednesday very early morning (for almost 9.5 hours), Thursday early morning (for almost 37 hours), and Sunday late evening (for almost 3.5 hours).

 

Before we get to this week’s forecast, I’d like to mention:

Star Members: check your email for the link to the mp4-video recording and enjoy watching it! I sent it out on Jan. 8th late evening 😉

 

Now, this week’s Forecast…

 

Monday, Jan. 11th:

Monday, the Moon remains in optimistic, adventurous, truth-seeking Sagittarius and VoC until 8:30am EST; at that time, the Moon moves into ambitious, goal-oriented Capricorn. It will journey there until Wednesday late morning/early afternoon. We tend to be more realistic, serious, cautious; this can support practical endeavors and financial matters.

Our ambition surges and brings with it a need for structure and planning; when you add in the pragmatism this aspect supports, you can see how this could be a very productive time for business and long-term goals. Our reputation becomes very important to us.

As best as you can during this aspect, avoid “should-ing” on yourself. Take the pressure off, perhaps by saying “I am doing the best I can and that’s all I can ever do” 😉

Saturn is the ruler of Capricorn — and it will be transiting through Aquarius, making this a great time to take a look at our visions for humanity, and at anything we would like to accomplish long-term within our communities (locally or online).

It’s also a great time to take a more serious look at our various networks and connections to like-minded people; as best as you can, be authentic about your affiliations: Do they truly resonate with your personal vision for the future — as it stands now, rather than what it was 5 or 10 years ago?

Does participation in those groups or networks align with who you are now, and with where you see yourself 5 years from now? What do you truly want to commit yourself to? This Moon placement also starts the build up towards the New Moon (exact Tuesday night/Wednesday very early morning).

Monday early afternoon, a Mercury/Jupiter alignment in almost 5 degrees of Aquarius becomes exact at 12:19pm EST. We started to feel this aspect from last week, Saturday (Jan. 9th) on; it will remain strong until this Wednesday evening (Jan. 13th). This alignment brings optimism and a tendency to talk and think more. It favors exploring our visions for the future, submitting applications and forms, and test-taking.

We can more readily exercise good judgment, be more philosophical in our thinking, and bring wholeness and order to our communities and connections with like-minded people. There is a sense of mental expansion — we see our vision for humanity (or particular group causes) as a source of adventure and personal growth.

We are optimistic and enthusiastic, and things tend to go well as a result — it’s all about thinking big and innovating. What if expanding our concept of group consciousness, the collective, and “one for all and all for one” helped us be more peaceful and calm? What if that in turn helped us manifest our desires?

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or personal planets) in 2-8 degrees of Aquarius, Leo, Taurus, or Scorpio? If so, you will feel this alignment quite strongly. This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Gemini, Virgo, or Sagittarius (Mercury is the ruler of Gemini and Virgo, so those folks will always be affected more strongly by Mercury’s movements and aspects; Jupiter rules Sagittarius) 

Also, Monday early afternoon, an opportune Mercury/Chiron aspect becomes exact at 12:23pm EST. We started to feel this aspect from last week Sunday (Jan. 10th) on; it will remain strong until Tuesday evening (Jan. 12th). We have an opportunity to bring healing energy to our concrete mind and to our thoughts. We also have a chance to heal insecurities in our verbal, in-person, social media or email interactions.

We are better able now to tune out that automatic/critical inner voice, in favor of more loving and compassionate structures for thinking and communicating. By bringing love and understanding to our thinking processes, we have a chance to move beyond entrenched habits, like “impatient self-talk”, or the use of aggressive language (swear words for example).

Here’s a few good “chew toys” for your mind at this time: What was your family’s attitude towards communication? Toward speaking up for yourself? What if you tried a kinder approach for a bit? Does your inner dialog really have to repeat what they said when you were 3 or 5 years old? What if you tried using a gentler voice for the next ten minutes or so?

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or any personal planets) in 3-7 degrees of Aquarius, Aries, Gemini, or Sagittarius? If so, you may be more aware of this opportunity. This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Gemini or Virgo (Mercury is the ruler of Gemini and Virgo).

And last but not least, Monday early afternoon, a long-term, opportune Jupiter/Chiron aspect becomes exact at 12:48pm EST. We started to feel this aspect from Jan. 1st on; it will remain strong until next week Wednesday evening (Jan. 20th). It’s an opportunity to bring healing to wounds around social conditioning or our belief systems.

We get a chance to grow and heal insecurities around being “too different”, or around what we believe to be true about ourselves and others; this healing happens much faster when we can open to forgiving ourselves and others. As best as you can, bring compassion and understanding to yourself, to others, and to those past experiences that wounded you.

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or personal planets) in 3-7 degrees of Aquarius, Aries, Gemini, or Sagittarius? If so, you will be…

New Moon in Capricorn – the article

On Jan. 12/13th at 12am EST, the Moon aligns with the Sun in 23 degrees of Capricorn, launching a new Moon cycle.

This is a good time to go within, to plant a seed for anything we would like to accomplish over the next 28 days, and maybe even beyond. The next section of this forecast will dig into this in more detail — you may also want to watch my New Moon video 🙂

This is the first New Moon in Capricorn since Jan. 5th, 2019, that is NOT also a Solar Eclipse. So, what have we learned about taking responsibility over the past two years? What have we come to understand about setting healthy boundaries? What have we realized about our own limitations? Other people’s limitations? How have our priorities shifted? Our goals? What have we learned about integrity? How much is there still to learn?

It is also the first New Moon of the year, and since Capricorn represents the quest for self-mastery on the physical plane, some useful questions you can ask yourself include:

What is my relationship to self-mastery now, versus in 2018? Am I going about things in a realistic way? Do I respect the laws of matter? What am I willing to undergo to overcome adversity? How committed am I to that?

The highest vibration of Capricorn is self-mastery: the development of responsibility, resourcefulness, reliability, the ability to set realistic goals and healthy boundaries. The next 28 days are a perfect time to work some more on these areas.

As best as you can, prepare for the future, make commitments, and recognize responsibilities — in other words, nurture your dreams in a realistic manner. Focus on setting and achieving practical and attainable long-term goals, one step at a time, one day at a time — this is not about immediate results, it’s about the quality of the foundation you are building.

Capricorn also invites us to set the kind of realistic limits and boundaries that allow everyone involved to learn from the consequences of their choices. Ask yourself: Where in my life am I able to set realistic limits and boundaries? Where am I not? What might I be afraid of when I don’t?

Capricorn relates directly to the level of our maturity. Ask yourself: What would taking 100% responsibility for my life look like? What if I responded to situations in a way that respects and serves all those involved?

Let’s talk about some of the aspects connected to this particular New Moon chart:

This New Moon aligns with Pluto in Capricorn: This conveys an extra-potent message about our perception of physical reality — time and space — and about our relationship to power or to feeling empowered. Ask yourself: If I truly had choice in the matter, what kind of future would I choose to step into? What if I became 5% more aware of my personal power? Where might I have given it away to others? And how might I begin to reclaim it?

Pluto’s involvement could foster an all-or nothing attitude over the next 28 days towards our long-term goals, or our standing in society — in fact, we might become obsessed over those things — and/or it might bring up a fear of “losing control”. It’s important to stay heart-centered and grounded — engage tools or people where possible, to help you let go of your fears and surrender to the Soul power that resides within you.

If you get obsessed about your accomplishments out there in the world, as best as you can, remind yourself to slow down and take breaks. Ask yourself: Am I driven by fear or love/passion? If fear, worry, concerns, etc. are present, could I simply acknowledge that experience?

Close your eyes, and ask yourself: Is what I am afraid of real right now, or is it a projection into the future? If so, could I let go of “wanting” (aka “expecting”) to create this future for myself? Could I choose more powerfully? Could I choose a future that allows me to feel empowered, no matter what the circumstances?

Given that it rules Capricorn, Saturn’s placement in Aquarius plays an important role with this New Moon — and if you’d like to know how Saturn’s journey in Aquarius will impact your personal chart over the next two years, feel free to check out my 90+ minute webinar on the subject, available for purchase on my webinar-page.

As mentioned previously I also have a webinar about the Great Jupiter-Saturn conjunction in Aquarius, that started a new 20-year social-economic cycle, and a 200-year elemental cycle in late Dec. 2020. Again, feel free to go to my webinar page, if you would like to take a look at that!

Saturn conjuncts Jupiter and Mercury in Aquarius. Aquarius focuses our attention on the collective, on respecting the rights, needs, and gifts of all beings. This particular combo reminds us…

Do you have your Ascendant or any personal planets in 21-25 degrees of Capricorn, Cancer, Aries, or Libra? If so, you may feel the effects of this New Moon more strongly.

The New Moon is also the best time to set some powerful intentions for this month’s Moon cycle — and the very best time to do this is after the New Moon becomes exact (and definitely not during a Moon void of course).

So this month the two best and most potent times to set intentions would be any time between 12am and 2:22am on Jan. 13th, or between Jan. 13th at 11:44am and Jan. 14th at 4:28am (EST/New York-time).

If you live in a timezone other than EST (US East Coast-time), and converting time zones isn’t your thing, I suggest joining my Facebook Fan-page and/or following me on Twitter, as I post reminders when it’s time to set your intentions 😉

Now, this week’s Forecast…

 

Monday, Jan. 4th:

Monday, the Moon remains in detail-oriented, practical Virgo all day. It will journey there until Monday night/Tuesday very early morning; turning our focus toward the practical and wholesome. We are generous with our time/services and we love to help others. We also have a fondness for science and anything that makes sense in our world — things and knowledge we can apply and use.

Health might come also into focus at this time. We notice the parts that make up the whole; this is a great time to see if our daily routines (eating, work, self-care, etc.) align with our long-term goals.

Monday at 4:34pm EST, we enter a Moon VoC that will last for a little over 8 hours, until 12:42am EST (Tuesday very early morning). Use this intuitive time to be precise and practical in your thinking and work. You may also want to be active and have an adventure with others. The tension between these two urges invites us to stretch a little and reach resolution through creative solutions — the key here is to be of service and allow for experimentation, so we don’t drive ourselves or others crazy. You may feel a little scatter-brained or all over the map. As best as you can, stay flexible — and don’t be too hard on yourself.

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

Monday evening, a Mercury/Pluto alignment in a little over 24 degrees of Capricorn becomes exact at 7:58pm EST. We started to feel this aspect from last week Saturday evening (Jan. 2nd) on; it will remain strong until this Wednesday evening. With this alignment, an all-or-nothing attitude is very likely.

We have tremendous mental focus — which could tip into obsession. Choose love over fear whenever possible. Connect to the things you feel passionate about — and connect to others, empowering them with your passions. As best as you can, choose your words carefully — if possible, speak from that deeply connected and empowered place.

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or any personal planets) in 21-27 degrees of Capricorn, Aries, Libra or Cancer? If so, you may feel more…

Breaking Away from Traditional Values

 

This week’s headline items: Chiron’s Station phase ends on Monday; the Full Moon in Cancer becomes exact on Tuesday late evening; Uranus starts to slow down (station) on Wednesday; and Venus moves over the degree of Dec. 14th’s Solar Eclipse on Saturday late evening.

There will be three Moon VoC phases this week: Monday late evening (for almost 7.5 hours), Thursday morning (for a little over 5 hours), and Saturday late afternoon (for a little over 3 hours).

 

Before we get to this week’s forecast, I’d like to…

Wish everyone a beautiful transition into the New Year! May we all be able to let go of what has burdened us in 2020, and move with vigor, lightness, and joy into 2021. If you want to align yourself with the energies of 2021, feel free to join us on Jan. 8th at 2pm EST, for “A Look Ahead” –> click here to for more info

 

Now, this week’s Forecast…

 

Monday, Dec. 28th:

Monday, the Moon remains in chatty, versatile Gemini all day. It will journey there until Tuesday early morning. Today, we like to learn, connect and interact as much as possible. “Busy” feels good: connecting online, on the phone, or sharing face-to-face, preferably multi-tasking all the way…

The one thing we can do without is boredom: If our mind is not engaged in some way, we might as well curl up and play dead 🙂

Monday at 10:01pm EST, we enter a Moon VoC that will last for almost 7.5 hours, until 5:28am EST (Tuesday early morning). If you are awake during this intuitive time, use it as an opportunity to move things forward for yourself, especially anything connected to personal goals or projects.

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

Also, Monday, Chiron ends its Station phase (at 5º of Aries) and gets back to its normal pace through the sky — We have a chance to implement everything we learned during the Retrograde phase and move forward with healing any physical, sexual, or “identity” wounds, or insecurities and sensitivities that came up around the masculine energies.

Full Moon in Cancer – the article

On Dec. 29th, at 10:28pm EST, the Moon opposes the Sun (in almost 9 degrees of Cancer). Relationships of all kinds are highlighted during this time — but with this Full Moon, there is a particularly strong emphasis on family- and business-relationships. If you are already a Member of my online community, feel free to also watch my Members Full Moon video.

This Full Moon shows us how far we have come since the last Solar Eclipse in Cancer (which was exact on June 21st, 2020) when it comes to self-care and any issues connected to family or home — and also how far we have come since November 2018, when the North Node moved into Cancer, and we started our journey towards greater emotional responsibility and self-alignment.

Ask yourself: What have I learned about self-care and where I feel most “at home” over the past two years? What have I learned about my emotional needs? How has an emotional connection to myself and loved ones been of benefit to me? How has it shifted my priorities?

Lots of planets are involved in this Full Moon chart — Mercury, Uranus, Chiron, Saturn, Jupiter, Venus and Neptune — and all play an important role, so buckle up! More about the specifics in regards to all of these planets in a moment…

But first, let’s take a look at the polarities involved with this Full Moon: The Moon in protective, feeling-oriented Cancer opposes the Sun in practical, accomplishment-oriented Capricorn.

We have a heightened sense that something must be brought into balance and reintegrated; the balance in question is between the experience of our feelings and emotional needs (symbolized by Cancer), versus our outer obligations or material, practical goals (Capricorn).

It’s important to realize that we all have limitations and challenges in life — and when we approach those in a nurturing way, taking care of our feeling body and inner baby, and allowing ourselves to receive support from family or “familiar” connections”, we are more likely to overcome those challenges and be realistic about limitations — our own, and other people’s.

Ask yourself: How am I…

December 21st – 27th

Our Humanitarian Goals — Forecast for Dec. 21st – 27th

 

This week’s headline items: the Sun changes signs from Sagittarius to Capricorn, marking the Winter Solstice in the Northern Hemisphere, early Monday morning; a rare Jupiter/Saturn alignment in Aquarius becomes exact on Monday afternoon; the first Quarter Moon in Aries becomes exact on Monday evening; Venus opposes the degree of Nov. 30th’s Lunar Eclipse on Tuesday morning; and Eclipse Season ends on Thursday.

There will be three Moon VoC phases this week: Monday early morning (for a little over 12 hours), Wednesday early evening (for 12 hours), and Saturday morning (for 12 hours).

 

Now, this week’s Forecast…

 

Monday, Dec. 21st:

Monday is quite a big day (astrologically speaking); the Moon remains in creative, sensitive Pisces. It will journey there until 5:32pm EST. This Moon placement often finds us more sensitive, intuitive, idealistic and imaginative than normal. We also have a greater capacity for compassion, sympathy and affection for all — but especially for those who suffer or can be regarded as the underdog.

But… that very idealism could also be our downfall at this time: We tend to see the best in everyone and everything, and when reality doesn’t match our idyllic vision, we might feel upset and even victimized by those harsh realities. A way out of this is to channel our idealism into spiritual or creative endeavors.

It’s also a great time for releasing fears — especially the ones based on a sense of separation — and experiencing “oneness”. Feelings tend to flow more freely; as best as you can, let them — in fact, “going with the flow” is the best way to go for the next couple of days.

Monday early morning, at 5:02am EST, the Sun changes signs from adventurous, optimistic, truth-seeking Sagittarius to practical, accomplishment-oriented, status-oriented Capricorn. This also marks the shortest day of the year (in the northern hemisphere) and the beginning of Winter — aka the Winter Solstice.

The Solstices are important turning points that take place twice a year: They are energetic gateways for the summer or winter season to come through. Solstice Points are thus extra-potent times to set intentions and take part in ceremonies.

The Sun will journey through the sign of Capricorn until Jan. 20th, 2020. Capricorn is a feet-on-the-ground, eyes-on-the-prize sign. As the Sun travels through it, we take a realistic, grounded approach to life; we know how to do things, and how to get things done.

We have a stronger sense of society and its structure, and feel most secure when doing our part within that structure; as such, worldly recognition may take on more importance for us. Making plans for the future can be very effective right now. We are more risk-averse at this time but we are ready to work hard and focus on what is essential.

All this is especially true if you are a Leo or Capricorn Sun-sign or Rising-sign. As a Capricorn, you will feel a good dose of confidence and playfulness in the next four weeks; as a Leo, you are more cautious and practical than usual…working towards a realistic long-term goal might be just the thing for you to do.

Monday at 5:25am EST, we enter a Moon VoC that will last for a little over 12 hours, until 5:32pm EST. Use this intuitive time as an opportunity to connect to your higher Self, and if possible, bring a sense of flow and faith to your long-term plans — especially those you feel really passionate about.

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

Monday early afternoon, a rare Jupiter/Saturn alignment in 0.5 degrees of Aquarius becomes exact at 1:21pm EST. The last time Jupiter aligned with Saturn in Aquarius was in the year 1405!!! As for this current alignment, we started to feel it building from Nov. 23rd on and it will remain strong until January 16th, 2021. It offers an opportunity to build long-term structures and foundations that bring about an expansion for all of humanity.

Jupiter and Saturn come together every 20 years. The last Jupiter-Saturn conjunction took place at 22º44′ of Taurus on May 28th, 2000 and the next one will be on Oct. 31st, 2040 at almost 18º of Libra.

Since this is the beginning of a 20-year social-economic cycle, we need to plan for the collective long game; it is important to look past our enthusiasm for a greater vision for the world we live in and focus instead on visualizing practical results within groups and communities, so we feel motivated to achieve them.

We will be wise to adopt a step-by-step approach to the realization of our humanitarian goals, conduct ourselves with integrity, and employ an ethical, mature, and open-minded approach.

Our inventions and unusual approaches need to focus on long-term sustainability and group consciousness. This is how we grow and expand as people over the next 20 years.

We might also overdo our need to “achieve something great for humanity” (Jupiter does, after all, represent excess as well).

Here are some questions we could ask ourselves in connection with the Jupiter-Saturn alignment in Aquarius:
Where have we been limiting ourselves, socially speaking? Where have we been wasting time? Energy? Resources? What might promote a new perspective on our social-economic goals? Or our achievements in our various communities? How might we become more tolerant and inventive when approaching life’s challenges? What humanitarian aspirations are we now ready to explore? What could we achieve in that regard over the next 20 years? How can each one of us get involved and be a part of this new future?

If you didn’t watch my powerful webinar about this Great Conjunction yet, and still would like to learn how this new 20-year social-economic cycle will impact you personally, watch my webinar Jupiter-Saturn Conjunction in Aquarius, Dec. 2020″ — all about how it relates to your own Birth Chart.

Star Members: check your email for the link to the mp4-video recording and enjoy watching it! I sent it out on Dec. 6th late evening.

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (MC) or personal planets in the following: 0-6 degrees of of Aquarius, Leo, Taurus, Scorpio, or 27-29 degrees of Capricorn, Cancer, Aries or Libra? If so, you will feel the effects of this aspect more strongly than otherwise. This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Sagittarius or Capricorn (Jupiter rules Sagittarius; Saturn is the ruler of Capricorn)

Monday at 5:32pm EST, the Moon moves into pioneering, fast-paced Aries, where it will journey until Thursday morning. Life is an adventure, we’re more open to new ideas, and have great enthusiasm for new projects. Patience is certainly not our strong suit at this time, but we can decide quickly, and act immediately.

Our independence and dynamism are important to us right now, so we may find it hard to be disciplined or accept advice at this time; in general, our responses to others tend to be more assertive or even aggressive. If you find your foot tapping, try hitting the gym, or finding other ways to burn off the body’s excess energy. This Moon placement starts the build up towards the first Quarter Moon (exact later this evening).

Monday evening, the first Quarter Moon in almost 0.5 degree of pioneering, fast-paced Aries becomes exact at 6:41pm EST. We started to feel this aspect build from the moment the Moon entered Aries earlier today. The Moon in pioneering, enthusiastic, fast-paced Aries makes a challenging aspect to the Sun practical, cautious, accomplishment-oriented Capricorn.

Last week (Dec. 14th) saw a powerful New Moon/Solar Eclipse in Sagittarius. If we set some intentions on Dec. 16th or 17th we are now ready to make some adjustments. This is a time to stretch and grow — and create some forward momentum — in fact, we may feel compelled to act, stirring up anxiety or overwhelm, so just go one breath at a time.

Remember, we’re still in Eclipse Season until Dec. 24th, and thus don’t have all the information we need to move brand-new projects forward yet. Allow for changes, remain flexible and adaptable, and find creative solutions in day-to-day interactions with others. Allow also for new downloads and for the release of “old” codes and conditioning. Simply put: an open mind and heart will serve us best (that’s true in general, but especially true until Eclipse season ends 😉

Another thing to remember: if something is beginning or ending in a way that seems organic… allow it to be. As best as you can, observe your feelings and stay grounded in the “here and now”. Connect to your intuition and inner wisdom; they will help carry you through this period. We are receiving a consciousness upgrade — that’s a good thing!


Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or personal planets) in the following: 0-3 degrees of Aries, Capricorn, Libra, Cancer or 28-29 degrees of Sagittarius, Pisces, Gemini or Virgo? If so, you will feel…

Jupiter in Aquarius until Dec. 2021!

On Dec. 19th, 2020 at 8:07am EST, Jupiter moves from practical, accomplishment-oriented Capricorn into freedom-loving, forward-thinking and objective Aquarius, where it will journey until May 13th, 2021. It will then revisit Aquarius between July 28th and Dec. 28th, 2021.

Jupiter represents our desire to seek insight through knowledge; some of this planet’s keywords are gratitude, hope, honor, morality, and the law — it is also the planet of possibility, optimism, and growth (including mental and spiritual growth), and is associated with a sense of humor, goodwill, and mercy.

The lower expressions of Jupiter include “Oh, the heck with it”, “I deserve this and more”, “the rules do not apply to me” — generally speaking, too much of a good thing, blind optimism, excess, stretching the truth, overindulgence, and so forth.

In the natal chart, the position of Jupiter reveals how we express generosity and tolerance, it also shows how we go about trusting others and improving our lives. Where do you look for wisdom and understanding? Where do you need movement and spaciousness? Where do you feel optimistic and have faith that things will turn out ok?

Jupiter represents the principle of expansion (it operates like a magnifying glass); it’s been in Capricorn over the last year (2020), where it created more opportunity for (and through) government. It sought an expansion of sustainable, long-term goals, and a greater understanding of our potential for overcoming adversity in the real world — for example, it helped us develop faith in our physical and cultural structures (or highlighted a lack of faith in those things). It also showed us more clearly where our limitations lie as a collective.

Capricorn values both expertise and healthy boundaries, so we’ve been getting to see what we believe to be true about government, authority figures, and collective rules and regulations in 2020 (and what stories we’ve been telling ourselves) — we also gained new perspectives on our collective experience and what we want to leave behind for other generations.

Jupiter in Aquarius brings the magnifying lens to bear on group consciousness, group visions, and networks of like-minded people; the opportunity now is to bring the enthusiastic energies of Jupiter to our communities, creating equality and open-minded exchanges with others.

Jupiter in Aquarius also promotes a greater understanding of our potential for everyone to express their individuality, celebrating each other’s differences. It helps us to have faith in our ability to turn challenges into change when we come together as one mind, one heart, one consciousness.

While Jupiter is in Aquarius (until Dec. 2021), we definitely attract the most good fortune when we are tolerant and fair, inventive, impartial, and cooperative. We value people and personal freedom. Unique perspectives, skills, and talents will serve us most. We are more open to new methods and want to see progress in the world. Possibilities for great tolerance and major humanitarianism are very strong; in particular, we are invited to offer freedom of choice to others.

We are also more able to think outside the box, are more mentally adventurous, ready, willing, and able to learn. We are into “mind expansion”, and are less attached to our values because we are generally more impartial and open-minded now — in fact, an original mind is what we seek. Intellectual stimulation is likewise welcome now, and the pursuit of technological inventions to make the future better and easier for everyone a worthy goal.

Jupiter in Aquarius also helps to create…

As Jupiter squares Uranus in Taurus during the course of its alignment with Saturn in Aquarius, we may become quite eager to make some essential changes in our lives, both collectively and individually.

We will talk in more detail about those Squares in our webinar: “2021: A Look Ahead”  Click here to join us live on Jan. 8th; or click here after Jan. 8th to purchase an mp4-video recording of this webinar.

Where does Jupiter-in-Aquarius fall in your own birth chart? What aspects does it make during the year-long transit? How does a wise response to one house support a more fruitful response to the next? What outward opportunities arise as Jupiter interacts with any of your personal planets? Where will you experience a major expansion until Dec. 2021? Where are you ready to create a network or alliance with others?

If you’d like more insight into those questions, we covered Jupiter’s and Saturn’s alignment in Aquarius in more detail in our last Forecasting Forum — so if you want to know how this powerful planetary alignment is impacting you personally, feel free to purchase the video-presentation of the last webinar — we applied the Jupiter’s and Saturn’s movement to our own birth charts! Click here to purchase our most recent Forum.

December 14th – 20th

An Experimental Attitude — Forecast for Dec. 14th – 20th

 

This week’s headline items: a New Moon/Solar Eclipse in Sagittarius becomes exact Monday late morning; Venus changes signs from Scorpio to Sagittarius on Tuesday late morning; Chiron comes to a halt, ending its 5-month Retrograde phase, on Tuesday late afternoon; its time to start setting our New Moon/Solar Eclipse intentions from Wednesday late morning on; Saturn changes signs from Capricorn to Aquarius on Wednesday night/Thursday very early morning; Neptune ends its Station phase on Friday; Jupiter changes signs from Capricorn to Aquarius on Saturday morning; and Mercury changes signs from Sagittarius to Capricorn on Sunday morning.

There will be three Moon VoC phases this week: Monday late morning (for a little over 11 hours), Wednesday night/Thursday very early morning (for almost an hour), and Saturday very early morning (for almost 4 hours).

 

Before we get to this week’s forecast, I’d like to mention:

Since Saturn and Jupiter will move into Aquarius this week, we will start to feel the Great Conjunction that will be exact next week Monday (Dec. 21st), on the day of the Winter Solstice, no less. If you didn’t watch this powerful webinar yet, and still would like to learn how this new 20-year social-economic cycle will impact you personally, watch my webinar Jupiter-Saturn Conjunction in Aquarius, Dec. 2020″ — all about how it relates to your own Birth Chart.

Star Members: check your email for the link to the mp4-video recording and enjoy watching it! I sent it out on Dec. 6th late evening 😉

 

Now, this week’s Forecast…

 

Monday, Dec. 14th:

Monday is quite a big day! The Moon remains in optimistic, adventurous, truth-seeking Sagittarius. Where it will journey until 10:35pm EST. We’re strongly motivated to explore and learn. We’re not likely to be big fans of routine — diversity and new adventures work best at this time — we’re also physically restless and need to burn that off with activity and physical exercise.

We tend to feel more open, optimistic and inspired — but we also have a high degree of independence, which means we’d rather inspire others to do things our way, than take orders. Inspiring others could come easier than normal, as we can see the bigger picture, leaving us confident that others will agree with us, once they see what we see.

As best as you can, speak your truth without assuming that everyone is on the same page as you. Improvisation works well for us at this time, as we are spontaneous and love living on the edge — just watch out you aren’t overdoing or overstating things.

Monday late morning, at 11:17am EST, the New Moon (Solar Eclipse) in 23 degrees of Sagittarius becomes exact. Solar Eclipses are extra-powerful New Moons that take place approximately every 6 months. During a Solar Eclipse, the Moon momentarily interrupts the normal flow of solar radiation, destabilizing existing configurations of energy and reorganizing consciousness to a higher level. Solar Eclipses indicate the beginning of a new experience, project, or cycle.

This is the last of six Eclipses in 2020. While there is a New Moon each month, Eclipses occur only 4-7 times a year, when the Sun, Moon, and Earth are precisely enough aligned. You may also want to watch my Solar Eclipse video.

Eclipses usually come in pairs (Solar and Lunar), and Eclipse season starts 10 days before the first Eclipse (in this case, the Lunar Eclipse in Gemini), and continues through the time of the second Eclipse (for this eclipse season, that would be the Solar Eclipse in Sagittarius ). This Eclipse Season thus started back on Nov. 20th and will last until Dec. 24th, 2020.

While eclipse season is underway, allow for new templates to download; stay centered and do your best to ground from within — try using conscious breathing and conscious flexibility — and best of all, see if you can move to the “observer position” when it comes to the emotional and mental body. And remember, this won’t last forever: on Dec. 24th, the downloads are complete 😉

Eclipses are a time for clarifying and affirming our highest path. We are bound to experience a release of some sort, and a recalibration — “old” codes will get deleted and new ones downloaded, especially in connection with belief systems, social and cultural conditioning, and assumptions we carry around with us. This helps us see from a wider perspective.

The Sun and Moon are connected to one of the Moon Nodes during an Eclipse, switching between the North and South Node Eclipses, emphasizing the evolutionary upgrades that are available to us during such times. This is the first South Node Solar Eclipse in Sagittarius since the Moon Nodes moved into the Gemini-Sagittarius polarity in early May 2020.

South Node Eclipses ask us to release or redefine energies or attachments that no longer serve our Soul’s evolution. They highlight past issues that need our attention, so we can grow beyond our conditioning, individually and collectively.

Eclipses are crossroads or turning points along our Soul’s Journey. They are often marked by events or situations that signify a critical shift in our lives, nudging us to either change and grow, or face greater difficulties at the next turning point.

Solar Eclipses, in particular, often correspond with major endings and beginnings. They occur close to the same degree every 19 years and the last time we had a South Node Solar Eclipse in that same degree was in Dec. 2001.

We are likely to experience a resonance between now and that time — “resonant”, rather than identical — so think back to the Winter of 2001/2002, and ask yourself: Were there any major endings and beginnings? What was important to me back then? If I were to take those priorities to the next level, where would that next level find me?

If you’re looking for more guidance on those questions, I would suggest taking a look at your Natal Chart — the House placement of the Eclipse will indicate which area of life is most ready to release outdated beliefs and social conditioning and go to a new level of consciousness.

Solar Eclipses are a good time to go within, to seed anything we would like to redefine or release over the next 6 months — we’ll dig into this in more detail towards the end of this article, when we talk about setting Solar Eclipse Intentions.

With the Solar Eclipse in optimistic, adventurous, truth-seeking Sagittarius, we seek to expand our day-to-day knowledge and look for a larger perspective.

For the next six months, ask yourself: What philosophies most resonate with me? What life perspectives are no longer serving me? What stories have I been telling myself about life? What universal truths feel immediately in alignment with my direct experience of life right now? Where is my understanding of life different from where it was 3 years ago? Do I see the glass as half-full or half-empty? Do I shy away from life’s challenges or thrive on exploring new ways to deal with adversity?

If you are already a Member of my online community, feel free to read the whole article here, and get access to all the Coaching Questions for this Solar Eclipse.

Do you have your Ascendant (or any personal planets) in 18-28 degrees of Sagittarius, Gemini, Virgo, or Pisces? If so, you may feel the effects of this New Moon more strongly. This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Leo or Cancer (the Sun rules Leo; the Moon rules Cancer).

Setting Intentions for a Solar Eclipse is a little different from the regular monthly New Moon process — after all, we are setting them for the whole 6-month Eclipse cycle, rather than just the next 28 days.

Solar Eclipse Intentions are best done 48 hours after the Eclipse becomes exact. We are downloading new templates at the time of an Eclipse, and the energies are quite intense, so we want to wait until it all settles down a little before setting our intentions… We also definitely do not want to do this during a Moon void of course.

There are therefore two best and most potent times to set your Intentions for this Solar Eclipse: the first one lasts a little over 13 hours, between 11:17am (on Dec. 16th) and 12:34am (on Dec. 17th) — and the second one lasts for almost 34 hours, between 1:27am (Dec. 17th) and 11:17am Friday (Dec. 18th) — (in US Eastern Time — i.e. the New York time zone).

Set powerful intentions — again, they cover the next six months — and if possible, align them with the Sagittarian energy! If you live in a timezone other than EST (US East Coast-time), and converting time zones isn’t your thing, I suggest joining my Facebook Fan-page and/or following me on Twitter, as I post reminders when it’s time to set your intentions 😉

For more details on how to set Intentions, click here.

Monday at 11:17am EST, right after the New Moon/Solar Eclipse becomes exact, we enter a Moon Void of Course (VoC), that lasts for a little over 11 hours until 10:35pm EST. Use this intuitive time to tune in, get still, and get in touch with your “Higher Mind”, to see what it has to say to you.

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

Monday afternoon, an opportune Venus/Jupiter aspect becomes exact at 3:58pm EST. We started to feel this aspect from last week, Saturday evening (Dec. 12th) on; it will be strong until this Wednesday evening. We have an opportunity to grow in our social and personal relationships at this time. Humor and being of service play a big role in our interactions with others.

We can call upon extra tolerance, optimism, and cooperation when dealing with authority figures or business dealings. Financially speaking, things are “on the up” — we may have opportunities now to expand our pocketbooks — if we make sound decisions that are aligned with the interests of our long-term goals.

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or personal planets) in the following: 27-29 degrees of Scorpio, Capricorn, Virgo, Pisces, or 0-1 degree of Sagittarius, Aquarius, Libra, or Aries? If so, you will be more aware of this opportunity. This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Taurus, Libra or Sagittarius (Venus is the ruler of Taurus and Libra; Jupiter is the ruler of Sagittarius).

Monday at 10:35pm EST, the Moon moves into practical, accomplishment-oriented Capricorn, where it will journey until Wednesday night/Thursday early morning. We tend to be more realistic, serious, cautious; this can support practical endeavors and financial matters.

Our ambition surges and brings with it a need for structure and planning; when you add in the pragmatism this aspect supports, you can see how this could be a very productive time for business and long-term goals. Our reputation becomes very important to us.

As best as you can during this aspect, avoid “should-ing” on yourself. Take the pressure off, perhaps by saying “I am doing the best I can and that’s all I can ever do” 😉

Saturn is the ruler of Capricorn; it is still transiting through its own sign until Thursday, making this a great time to take a last look at your long-term aspirations and anything that you would like to master now. It’s also a great time to take a more serious look at our strategies for self-mastery.

For starters: Do you truly see “what’s so” in your life (as opposed to what you merely wish it to be, or what you would like it to be, or where you see yourself going, etc)? What is actually so right now? Once you have a handle on where “A” is, it’s easier to “go from A to B” — whether “B” is self-mastery or standing on the mountaintop.

Monday late evening, a harmonious Mercury/Mars aspect becomes exact at 11:24pm EST. We started to feel this aspect from last week Saturday afternoon (Dec. 12th) on; it will be strong until this Thursday morning (Dec. 17th). This aspect helps us clarify our personal goals. We act from our excited thinking, with courage and passion; we tend to be enthusiastic and funny, and an experimental attitude is also supported.

We are quick, perceptive, and brave — interestingly, one of the things we easily perceive is the weaknesses of others. Our minds are more optimistic, so it’s important that we stay realistic. We have expansive thoughts; we have lively conversations in which we speak our truth without compromise and yet without coming across as too blunt or offensive — on the other hand, our passion might mean we come across as rather impatient.

We seem to “download” great insights (and make superb decisions) at the very last minute — and the good news is, we can easily turn those insights into workable projects. Use this energy to your advantage — there is plenty of it!

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or any personal planets) in 18-24 degrees of Sagittarius, Aries, or Leo? If so, you may feel…

Solar Eclipse in Sagittarius – article

On Dec. 14th at 11:17am EST, a powerful New Moon and Solar Eclipse in 23 degrees of Sagittarius becomes exact.

Eclipses are a time for clarifying and affirming our highest path. We are bound to experience a release of some sort, and a recalibration — “old” codes will get deleted and new ones downloaded, especially in connection with belief systems, social and cultural conditioning, and assumptions we carry around with us. This helps us see from a wider perspective.

The Sun and Moon are connected to one of the Moon Nodes during an Eclipse, switching between the North and South Node Eclipses, emphasizing the evolutionary upgrades that are available to us during such times. This is the first South Node Solar Eclipse in Sagittarius since the Moon Nodes moved into the Gemini-Sagittarius polarity in early May 2020.

South Node Eclipses ask us to release or redefine energies or attachments that no longer serve our Soul’s evolution. They highlight past issues that need our attention, so we can grow beyond our conditioning, individually and collectively.

Eclipses are crossroads or turning points along our Soul’s Journey. They are often marked by events or situations that signify a critical shift in our lives, nudging us to either change and grow, or face greater difficulties at the next turning point.

Solar Eclipses, in particular, often correspond with major endings and beginnings. They occur close to the same degree every 19 years and the last time we had a South Node Solar Eclipse in that same degree was in Dec. 2001.

We are likely to experience a resonance between now and that time — “resonant”, rather than identical — so think back to the Winter of 2001/2002, and ask yourself: Were there any major endings and beginnings? What was important to me back then? If I were to take those priorities to the next level, where would that next level find me?

If you’re looking for more guidance on those questions, I would suggest taking a look at your Natal Chart — the House placement of the Eclipse will indicate which area of life is most ready to release outdated beliefs and social conditioning and go to a new level of consciousness. If that idea appeals, check out my free 30-minute class, “How to Read My Birth Chart”.

Solar Eclipses are a good time to go within, to seed anything we would like to redefine or release over the next 6 months — we’ll dig into this in more detail towards the end of this article, when we talk about setting Solar Eclipse Intentions.

With the Solar Eclipse in optimistic, adventurous, truth-seeking Sagittarius, we seek to expand our day-to-day knowledge and look for a larger perspective. For the next six months, ask yourself

Do you have your Ascendant (or any personal planets) in 18-28 degrees of Sagittarius, Gemini, Virgo, or Pisces? If so, you may feel the effects of this extra powerful New Moon more strongly. This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Leo or Cancer (the Sun rules Leo; the Moon rules Cancer).

Setting Intentions for a Solar Eclipse is a little different from the regular monthly New Moon process — after all, we are setting them for the whole 6-month Eclipse cycle, rather than just the next 28 days.

Solar Eclipse Intentions are best done 48 hours after the Eclipse becomes exact. We are downloading new templates at the time of an Eclipse, and the energies are quite intense, so we want to wait until it all settles down a little before setting our intentions… We also definitely do not want to do this during a Moon void of course.

There are therefore two best and most potent times to set your Intentions for this Solar Eclipse: the first lasts a little over 13 hours, between 11:17am (on Dec. 16th) and 12:34am (on Dec. 17th) — and the second for almost 34 hours, between 1:27am (Dec. 17th) and 11:17am Friday (Dec. 18th) — (in US Eastern Time — i.e. the New York time zone).

Set powerful intentions — again, they cover the next six months — and if possible, align them with the Sagittarian energy! If you live in a timezone other than EST (US East Coast-time), and converting time zones isn’t your thing, I suggest joining my Facebook Fan-page and/or following me on Twitter, as I post reminders when it’s time to set your intentions 😉

December 7th – 13th

A Spirited & Enthusiastic Confidence

 

This week’s headline items: Mercury opposes the Lunar Eclipse degree of 8.5º of Gemini very early Monday morning; the last Quarter Moon in Virgo becomes exact on Monday evening; Chiron’s Station intensifies on Wednesday; the Balsamic Moon phase begins on Friday early morning; Sunday is the last day before the Solar Eclipse becomes exact.

There will be three Moon VoC phases this week: Tuesday late afternoon (for 1.5 hours), Thursday evening (for an hour) and Saturday late evening (for a brief 41 minutes).

 

Before we get to this week’s forecast, I’d like to mention:

Now, this week’s Forecast…

 

Monday, Dec. 7th:

Monday, Moon remains in detail-oriented, practical Virgo all day. It will journey there until Tuesday evening; turning our focus toward the practical and wholesome. We are generous with our time/services and we love to help others. We also have a fondness for science and anything that makes sense in our world — things and knowledge we can apply and use.

Health might come also into focus at this time. We notice the parts that make up the whole; this is a great time to see if our daily routines (eating, work, self-care, etc.) align with our long-term goals. This Moon placement started the build up towards the last Quarter Moon (exact later today).

Monday, very early morning, around 3am EST, Mercury in Sagittarius transits the degree of Nov. 30th’s Lunar Eclipse in Gemini-Sagittarius —  and we may experience something that provides insight, most likely around our relationship to communication. We are invited to listen to how we perceive and say things, and to communicate or share something that helps us connect to others, rather than leaving us feeling superior to them.

Observe how this plays out for you today: Where (or with whom) are you looking to connect? What are you most aware of? You are invited to process and share any outdated beliefs or cultural conditioning. What conversations might clear the way, so you can move forward powerfully, with an open mind and clear information?

Monday very early morning, we are invited to connect with like-minded people and learn something new about our unique talents or value in the world. We are able to better connect to anything that requires attention to detail. We might also perhaps implement revolutionary health routines or other systems in our day to day life that support our values and make life more enjoyable.

Monday morning, we are being asked to stretch and grow — to undertake a process of adjusting our thinking. You may feel a little scatter-brained or all over the map. As best as you can, stay flexible — and don’t be too hard on yourself.

Monday evening, at 7:37pm EST, the last Quarter Moon in 16.5 degrees of Virgo becomes exact. We started to feel this aspect build from the moment the Moon entered Virgo, last week, Sunday afternoon (Dec. 6th). The Moon in detail-oriented, helpful and practical Virgo makes a challenging aspect to the Sun in optimistic, adventurous, truth-seeking Sagittarius.

This may bring challenges; however, it also energizes us to face what demands completion or change. 

This Moon phase brings us closer to Dec. 14th, which will bring a powerful New Moon (Solar Eclipse) in Sagittarius.

With this particular last Quarter Moon, rather than starting major new projects, it serves us take a look at what was started around the time of the last Eclipse — in this case, around June 21st. We now have about a week to wrap those projects up. What — if anything — needs last-minute adjustments? What did you discover since June 21st? What did it mean for you?

As best as you can, find creative solutions for anything that comes up (whether internally, or with others).

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or personal planets) in 14-19 degrees of Virgo, Sagittarius, Gemini, or Pisces? If so, you will feel…

Now, this week’s Forecast…

 

Monday, Nov. 30th:

Monday, the Moon remains in chatty, versatile Gemini all day. It will journey there until Tuesday late evening. Until then, we like to learn, connect and interact as much as possible. “Busy” feels good: connecting online, on the phone, or sharing face-to-face, preferably multi-tasking all the way… The one thing we can do without is boredom: If our mind is not engaged in some way, we might as well curl up and play dead 🙂

Monday early morning, at 4:30am EST, the Full Moon becomes exact, in 8.5 degrees of Gemini; as mentioned above, the entrance of the Moon into Gemini Sunday late morning (Nov. 29th) started the energetic build up towards this Full Moon. This powerful Full Moon is also a Lunar Eclipse, the first of two Eclipses within a two week-period, offering an opportunity for expanding our thinking and expressing ourselves with confidence and optimism.

During a Lunar Eclipse, the Full Moon slowly dims as it passes through the Earth’s shadow, a Lunar Eclipse therefore stimulates our emotional body and increases our awareness of unconscious patterns and fears. If you are already a Member of my online community, click here to watch my Lunar Eclipse video for more details.

Eclipses are always powerfully connected to the Moon Nodes and thus to our Soul’s Journey (on a collective and individual level). All Eclipses transmit new energetic codes and transformative downloads, symbolized by the signs involved: The Moon and the North Node are in chatty, versatile Gemini, while the Sun and the South Node are in adventurous, truth-seeking Sagittarius. Feel free to also check out my webinar in connection with those Moon Nodes: our collective Soul Journey until Jan. 2022 (if you haven’t seen it yet).

The more receptive we are to these transformative downloads, the easier and more quickly we can integrate them: time in nature, meditation, art, and spiritual endeavors support this integration process and help us be attuned to these evolutionary upgrades.

Lunar Eclipses give us a chance to realize how far we’ve come since the time of the last set of Eclipses — we gain a better insight as to whether we are where we’d like to be, or if it’s time to correct our course.

The last Lunar Eclipse in the same polarity was on June 5th, 2020. This current Eclipse cycle will continue a conversation that started back then around our beliefs and attitudes towards government and how we meet challenges that are coming up as a collective: Could we each take responsibility for our part in that conversation and the stories we are attached to? Are we willing to participate in that conversation in a mature way? Are we hiding behind “old” beliefs and social conditioning?

Are we able to acknowledge our limitations and shortcomings without making others “wrong”? Are we willing to approach this unique collective situation with a curious mind and an open heart?

This current Full Moon/Lunar Eclipse has two Quincunxes, a highly exalted Neptune in Pisces — that also squares the Moon Nodes — and a supportive connection to Chiron (the Wounded Healer). I will go into all those in detail in a moment…

As our collective consciousness continues to awaken, what’s been in the shadows comes to the forefront more and more, so we can see it more clearly and deal with it on a conscious level. Lunar Eclipses allow us to see the Shadow aspects of each sign as well.

The consequences of our choices and motivations also become more obvious. It is therefore more important than ever to ask yourself: Am I choosing from love or fear? Love expands, fear contracts. Love unifies, fear divides. What am I experiencing more of? And how could I experience 5% more expansion of the heart? 5% greater unification of mind and soul?

Until Jan. 2022, we will be dealing with the Sagittarius/Gemini polarity, as the Moon Nodes will be moving through those two mutable signs until then — and given this, we will be seeking balance and integration around those two poles — collectively and individually speaking… So let’s look at those signs in more detail:

The Moon and North Node in Gemini, invite us to…  If you are already a Member of my online community, read the whole article and get all the Coaching Questions for this month’s Full Moon/Lunar Eclipse, here.

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or personal planets) in 3-14 degrees of Gemini, Sagittarius, Virgo, or Pisces? If so, you are more affected by this month’s Full Moon. This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Leo or Cancer (the Sun rules Leo, the Moon rules Cancer)

Monday afternoon, an opportune Mercury/Saturn aspect becomes exact at 2:01pm EST. We started to feel this aspect from Sunday afternoon (Nov. 29th) on; it will remain strong until Tuesday night. This is an opportunity to take responsibility for our thinking structures and be really honest with ourselves.

How can we get the most from this opportunity? By allowing ourselves to go deeper as we investigate our fear-based thinking or self-defeating behaviors. Commit to understanding your conditioning and thinking processes.

If we take this chance to see things more clearly and connect to ourselves more deeply, we could get a good dose of reality, and an ability to focus on long-term issues. Remember: opportunities are openings; they aren’t necessarily handed to us — we have to “take” them and make something of them.

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or any personal planets) in the following 26-29 degrees of Scorpio, Capricorn, Pisces, Virgo or 0-1 degrees of Sagittarius, Aquarius, Aries or Libra? If so, you may be more aware of this opportunity. This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Gemini, Virgo or Capricorn (Mercury is the ruler of Gemini and Virgo; Saturn rules Capricorn)

Monday at 11:22pm EST, we enter a Moon Void of Course (VoC), that lasts for a little over 23 hours until 10:33pm EST (Tuesday late evening, Dec. 1st). Use this intuitive time to make some adjustments — and to do a little stretching and growing, when it comes to your inner or emotional experiences. As best as you can, be gentle with yourself and others, seek to understand before seeking to be understood.

As always with a Moon VoC, as best as you can, don’t…

Lunar Eclipse in Gemini — the article

On Nov. 30th at 4:30am EST, a Full Moon becomes exact in 8.5 degrees of Gemini. This powerful Full Moon is also a Lunar Eclipse, the first of two Eclipses within a two week-period, offering an opportunity for expanding our thinking and expressing ourselves with confidence and optimism.

During a Lunar Eclipse, the Full Moon slowly dims as it passes through the Earth’s shadow, a Lunar Eclipse therefore stimulates our emotional body and increases our awareness of unconscious patterns and fears.

Are we willing to participate in that conversation in a mature way? Are we hiding behind “old” beliefs and social conditioning?

Are we able to acknowledge our limitations and shortcomings without making others “wrong”? Are we willing to approach this unique collective situation with a curious mind and an open heart?

Now, write down those same coaching questions, and this time substitute “we” with “I”, “our” with “my”, etc. Notice how different the questions sound and feel…

Lunar Eclipses direct our attention to whatever needs to be integrated and balanced on a collective and individual level over a longer period of time. We are invited to get ready for some big shifts in our lives, especially around our relationship with our belief structures, and our ability to learn, stay adaptable, and use our day-to-day mind intelligently.

Our physical and emotional bodies strongly feel the intensity of it all. Just remember: Eclipses ultimately support a shift in consciousness and thus bring us closer to our Soul’s path.

Eclipse season already began on Nov. 20th (ten days prior to the Lunar Eclipse becoming exact)… it will last until Dec. 24th. Feel free to join us live on Dec. 6th at 11:30am EST for the last Forecasting Forum of the year!

We will take a look at the Jupiter-Saturn alignment in Aquarius, which starts a new 20-year social-economic cycle, and a larger 200-year cycle between these two social planets in the Air element! And I will also answer questions about the upcoming Eclipses!

Now, this week’s Forecast…

 

Monday, Nov. 23rd:

Monday, the Moon remains in creative, sensitive Pisces all day. It will journey there until Tuesday late morning. This Moon placement often finds us more sensitive, intuitive, idealistic and imaginative than normal. We also have a greater capacity for compassion, sympathy and affection for all — but especially for those who suffer or can be regarded as the underdog.

But… that very idealism could also be our downfall at this time: We tend to see the best in everyone and everything, and when reality doesn’t match our idyllic vision, we might feel upset and even victimized by those harsh realities. A way out of this is to channel our idealism into spiritual or creative endeavors.

It’s also a great time for releasing fears — especially the ones based on a sense of separation — and experiencing “oneness”. Feelings tend to flow more freely; as best as you can, let them — in fact, “going with the flow” is the best way to go for today and tomorrow morning.

Monday morning: we are invited to share about deep emotional issues and support each other in a loving and compassionate way. As best as you can, allow for feelings to flow, and release anything that feels “old” or “toxic”.

Monday late morning, we feel more sensitive and need to slow down a little. This is a great time for spiritual or creative endeavors. Energy work, or anything that requires our intuitive side, will work best for the next several hours.

Monday evening, we have the opportunity to be guided by inspiration, and fully commit to a project or task that might serve us long-term. As best as you can, listen and trust the subtle messages in your heart that stir you towards success.

Monday late evening, a harmonious Mercury/Neptune aspect becomes exact at 11:40pm EST. We started to feel this aspect build from last week, Saturday night (Nov. 21st) on, it will remain strong until this Wednesday night. This aspect supports imaginative thinking and the ability to connect our day-to-day mind with our intuition.

We pick up on what is going on with people, and can flow with that, as we can sense how our words land. This heightened sensitivity to subtle signals also opens us to metaphysical or spiritual concepts, visual arts, poetry — and to commercial messaging from advertisers and marketers.

Do you have any of your personal planets or Ascendant in 15-21 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 Gemini, Virgo, or Pisces (Mercury is the ruler of Gemini and Virgo; Neptune rules Pisces).

Also, Monday late evening, we get an opportunity to be wholly present; also to bring an expansive perspective to our current relationship to self-mastery. This is a great time to be looking for…

November 16th – 22nd

Our Desire to be Whole & Empowered — Forecast for Nov. 16th – 22nd

 

This week’s headline items: Mars’s Station phase continues all week; Neptune’s Station intensifies on Wednesday; on Thursday afternoon, Mercury ends its post-Shadow phase, and it’s also time to start taking actions on our New Moon intentions. On Friday, Eclipse season begins; Venus changes signs from Libra to Scorpio on Saturday morning; the Sun changes signs from Scorpio to Sagittarius on Saturday afternoon, and the first Quarter Moon in Pisces becomes exact Saturday late evening.

 

There will be three Moon VoC phases this week: Tuesday very early morning (for almost 9 hours), Thursday late morning (4 hours), Friday evening (a little over 27 hours).

 

Now, this week’s Forecast…

 

Monday, Nov. 16th:

Monday, the Moon remains in optimistic, adventurous, truth-seeking Sagittarius all day. It will journey there until Tuesday late morning. We’re strongly motivated to explore and learn. We’re not likely to be big fans of routine — diversity and new adventures work best at this time — we’re also physically restless and need to burn that off with activity and physical exercise.

We tend to feel more open, optimistic and inspired — but we also have a high degree of independence — and taking these two influences together, this means we’d rather inspire others to do things our way, as opposed to issuing or obeying orders.

Inspiring others could come easier than normal, as we can see the bigger picture, leaving us confident that others will agree with us, once they see what we see.

As best as you can, speak your truth without assuming that everyone is on the same page as you. Improvisation works well for us at this time, as we are spontaneous and love living on the edge — just watch out you aren’t overdoing or overstating things.

Monday very early morning, a challenging Venus/Jupiter aspect becomes exact at 12:33am EST. We started to feel this aspect from last week Friday afternoon (Nov. 13th) on; it will remain strong until Wednesday evening (Nov. 18th). This aspect asks that we question our most fundamental beliefs and conditioning around our values and relationships.

We have the opportunity here to grow beyond our understanding of what our values get us. Issues connected to love, relationships, and whatever is most valuable to us, can seem overwhelming at this time. This is because we have a tendency to overindulge or over-promise.

We mean well, because we are feeling quite optimistic at this time — but we may underestimate how much time we actually have, or how good a fit something actually is. Overspending, overindulging and over-promising could be connected to this aspect as well (as could making assumptions in our relationships); as best as you can, bring a non-judgmental awareness to any such tendencies.

As best as you can, weigh the benefits and limitations of any given situation or relationship (including those that lie within yourself or the other people involved), then base your decisions on what works best in the moment. Ask yourself: If I were less concerned with morality and “rightness”, what might I perceive about this from a neutral rather than a personal perspective?

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or personal planets) in 20-26 degrees of Libra, Capricorn, Aries or Cancer  ? If so, you will feel this aspect quite strongly. This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Taurus, Libra or Sagittarius (Venus is the ruler of Taurus and Libra; Jupiter is the ruler of Sagittarius).

Monday late morning: we have lots of energy and a positive attitude towards life. If you are awake, start something you feel passionate or enthusiastic about — what projects come to mind? What would be a fantastic use for all the physical energy that you have currently access to?

Monday afternoon, we may need to make some adjustments. As best you can, honor both your need for adventure and exploration of life and your need to go within.

You may also feel a pull between introvert and extrovert, or simply fast and slow. Tune in for a moment and see if you need to take a break or at least slow down a little. As best as you can,…

Super New Moon in Scorpio — the article

On Nov. 15th at 12:07am EST, the Moon aligns with the Sun in 23 degrees of Scorpio, beginning a new Moon cycle. This New Moon brings us closer to the beginning of Eclipse season, which starts on Nov. 20th — my next Full Moon video will be about the Lunar Eclipse in Gemini.

This New Moon is also a SuperMoon. “SuperMoons” occur when the Moon becomes either Full or New while unusually close to the Earth and are therefore more powerful. They generate greater gravitational and electromagnetic forces and therefore increased effects on our physical, mental, and emotional bodies. This also facilitates greater shifts in consciousness. This is the third of three Super New Moons in a row.

With the Super New Moon in passionate, all-or-nothing Scorpio, our focus is directed to our intimate relationships, and our deepest desires and fears; if you’d like to learn more about this Lunation, check out my video on the subject, here

Scorpio is the second water sign of the zodiac, so it relates not only to the depths of our own psyche, but also to the ecstasies and traumas of relationships. Before we jump in and talk about the Scorpio energy and how to understand it better and connect to it, let me mention that with this Super New Moon we are also dealing with two exalted planets, both moving much slower at this time:

Mars, the traditional ruler of Scorpio, is currently in Aries and still exalted due to its station; it just started to change directions again on Nov. 13th (ending its 9-week Retrograde phase) — and Neptune is also exalted over the next several weeks, as it is preparing to end its 5-months Retrograde phase — for more on those planetary movements, in connection with our own birth charts, get the “Mars in Aries & Neptune in Pisces Exalted”. Click here to purchase this 99min. webinar (if you haven’t seen it yet).

Star Members: check your email for the link to the mp4-video recording and enjoy watching it! I sent it out on Nov. 8th late evening 😉

In connection with Mars, ask yourself: What has come up for me since July 25th around self-identity, aggression, or personal passions? What, if anything, have I already revised, reprocessed, or redone since Mars went retrograde back on Sept. 9th? How will this new connection to myself, and the things I identify with, impact the next steps in my life?

In connection with Neptune, ask yourself: What have I learned since June 23rd about trusting the flow of life and my intuitive voice? My intuitive sensing? How might this understanding help me interact more from a “loving heart”? How might this impact our moving forward collectively?

The gift of compassion and forgiveness, the gift of an open heart that seeks to understand, is our gift to the world and to the collective journey — even when it is so hard sometimes to wrap our minds around how others react or behave in certain situations.

The Station phase of Neptune allows us to fully see how an open, forgiving heart can shift our experience and our interactions with others; ask yourself: What’s in my present awareness? What asks for my attention when it comes to resting, trusting, and allowing?

What’s confronting me around a long-term dream of mine? When I tune into myself, what do I feel connected to? What if I tune into life itself?

Neptune in Pisces has been in a Square to the current Moon Nodes in Gemini-Sagittarius since mid-September 2020, and this will continue until late February 2021. Its current Station phase will give this Square more weight between Nov. 12th and December 18th.

Notice when your busy mind distracts you from the present moment, when your beliefs or assumptions take you on a detour, away from what you are sense is true in this moment, and when “being right” becomes more important than “being connected” or “coming from a whole-heart”.

When you notice any of the above, ask yourself: How might a moment of silence bring me back to what’s here now? Might it allow me to drop back into my heart? Might it support me in finding a heart-connection with myself and others?

Now, let’s talk about Scorpio and some of the other aspects in this New Moon chart: Scorpio is associated with…

Do you have your Ascendant (or any personal planets) in 21-25 degrees of Scorpio, Taurus, Leo or Aquarius? If so, you may feel the effects of this New Moon more strongly. This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Leo or Cancer (the Sun rules Leo; the Moon rules Cancer).

The New Moon is also the best time to set some powerful intentions for this month’s Moon cycle. Intentions are best done soon after the New Moon becomes exact — and definitely not during a Moon void of course phase. So this month, the best time to set intentions would be any time between 12:07am until 6:13am on Nov. 15th; then again from 10:47am (on Nov. 15th) until 12:07am on Nov. 17th — New York Time/US Eastern Time

If you live in a timezone other than EDT (that’s the US East Coast time zone), feel free to join my Facebook Fan-page or follow me on twitter. I will be posting reminders on Nov. 15th early morning and afternoon/evening, on Nov. 16th throughout the day and night, to let you know when it is time to set your intentions 😉
