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.

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…

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. 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?

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…

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,…
