I hope this Blog entry finds you well! Sunday and Friday will be the most astrologically quiet days. Venus begins forming uncomfortable squares with our super triple conjunction (Jupiter on Mon 11/23, Chiron on Tues 11/24, & Neptune on Thurs 11/26). This may bring problems with both love & finances. However, On Tuesday the Sun will form a positive sextile with Saturn helping us to be more disciplined & organized. On Wednesday Venus trines Uranus which may bring an unexpected and pleasant surprise. Saturday will mostly consist of (positive) Moon transits that should provide for a pleasant day! Enjoy your week!
I wanted to add a footnote to my entries. I include the time that a transit will be exact so that you can see when it waxes and then when it starts to wane. However, the effects are often felt sometimes even as long as a day or two. The energy is usually felt more strongly during the time leading up to the height and then it slowly starts to dissipate after. Keep in mind that Moon transits tend to last a shorter period of time than planetary transits.
(Sunday 11/22/09)- Today will be an astrologically quiet day with just two Lunar transits. Keep in mind that Lunar transits are shorter in duration than planetary transits. The day will be under the influence of humanitarian-oriented Aquarius Moon. Overnight, the Moon in Aquarius will make a flowing trine to Saturn in Libra (exact at 2:51am EST). Last night and into this morning we will be under this influence. This is a great time for organization, house cleaning, filing, recycling, and being disciplined. Also a good time to start a diet or health regimen (like quitting smoking). Sometimes others will ask for help around this transit, but it won’t be burdensome, we will be happy to help!
Then, in the evening the Moon in Aquarius will form a positive sextile to Mercury in Sagittarius (exact at 8:20pm EST). This will make us want to reach out to friends and family to chat. This transit helps with the flow of communication. It will be easier to express how we feel around this transit.
(Monday 11/23/09)- In the morning, the Moon in Aquarius will form its monthly opposition to Mars in Leo (exact at 5:39am EST). Try to have patience this morning! Someone could irritate you during this transit. It’s possible to enjoy a debate with someone (or at worst, an argument). As with all Mars transits, I recommend exercise or doing something physical. Mar’s energy will want to get out one way or another; it might as well be constructive!
The Moon will highlight/intensify the Venus/Jupiter square later today. The Moon in Aquarius will square Venus in Scorpio (exact at 2:30pm EST). Although we will have a drive to be with others around this time, it would be best to avoid heavy conversations pertaining to love. Sometimes the object of our affections is just out of reach (or otherwise detained) around this transit. The is not a good time to go shopping or work on beautification because what we think looks good now may seem like a bad idea at a later time. Next, the Moon will form its monthly conjunction with Jupiter both in Aquarius (exact at 3:42pm EST) assisting us in feeling optimistic and upbeat. This is an ideal time to work with groups of people. It also highlights/benefits: travel (especially long distance), other cultures, higher education, law, publishing, advertising, sales, horses, and spirituality. Then, Venus in Scorpio will form an annoying square to Jupiter in Aquarius (exact at 5:02pm EST). Remember, this is a planetary transit and its effects will be felt much longer than a Moon transit. Both Venus & Jupiter are considered to be benevolent planets…even though they are forming an uncomfortable square. This may be a time of optimism and we may even feel like being social. However, we may make a small social faux pas, like wearing the wrong attire or calling the boss’s wife the wrong name. What do you value most? Are you unconsciously pushing it away? Avoid impulse buys around this time; it will cost you! You may have grandiose ideas about the direction of a love relationship. We may feel a little lazy and indolent around this transit….if at all possible try to relax tonight! Next, the Moon forms its monthly conjunction with Chiron both in Aquarius (exact at 5:57pm EST). You may be presented with an opportunity to heal or to be healed. Holistic and alternative medicine is especially favored. Serendipitous moments abound! Lastly, the Moon forms its monthly conjunction with Neptune both in Aquarius (exact at 10:35pm EST) causing our imagination/creativity to soar. This transit is also beneficial for daydreaming, idealism, intuition, romance, music, poetry, abstract ideas, mysticism, etc. It is possible to be more charming (or to meet charming people) around this transit. Because idealism & escapism can be enhanced with this transit, I wouldn’t make a big decisions or sign contracts around this time. If you are sleeping while this event occurs, it may be possible to have prophetic or “visitation” dreams. This will start a 13+ hour void-of-course Moon cycle that will last until the Moon will transition into intuitive Pisces. When the Moon makes no major planetary aspects to another planet, before it switches into the next sign, is call “void of course”. It is best to not do anything new during these times because it has a decreased chance of working or will have delays.
(Tuesday 11/24/09)- I will be doing Astrological Readings at Spirit Dancer today between 3-5pm. This is a great opportunity to get an introductory reading from me at a discount ($25.00 per ½ hour). They are located at 125 S. Winooski Ave in Burlington, VT (across from the fire station). Walk-ins are welcome or you can call me for a time.
In the morning, the Sun in Sagittarius forms a positive sextile with Saturn in Libra (exact at 10:35am EST). Remember, this is a planetary transit and its effects will be felt much longer than a Moon transit. This transit benefits work and discipline. Best to concentrate on: work, organization, gardening/planting (connecting with nature in general especially soil, woods, & forest), and details. This would also be an ideal time to start a new health or exercise regime. This is a great time for goal setting and building good relations with those in authority. This is a good time to help the elderly or an aging relative. The Moon transitions into dreamy Pisces (exact at 11:07am EST). Activities that are favored during Moon in Pisces: creativity, intuition, spiritual aspirations, higher consciousness, connection with feelings, counseling, music, art, photography, nature and especially being near water, and charitable work. Things to avoid are: getting so caught up in others feeling that you put your aside, excessive escapism, and acting like a martyr. These are all themes that will last the next 2 ½ days.
In the afternoon, the Moon in Pisces will form a positive sextile with Pluto Capricorn (exact at 3:08pm) helping us to connect with what is going on under the surface. If you were awake during this time it would be beneficial for: cathartic experiences, deep conversations, and all forms of counseling are favored during this transit. Then, the Moon in Pisces will form an annoying quincunx with Saturn in Libra (exact at 4:11pm EST). It may be hard to complete everything on our “list” or to get organized. It’s also possible that our emotions could make it hard to work around this time. Luckily, this influence will be short… Next the Sun in Sagittarius will form an uncomfortable square with the Moon in Pisces (exact at 4:39pm EST). So, toward Sat. evening and into early morning we may experience some tension between friends or loved ones. This won’t be conducive to feeling very supported. Sometimes this transit brings (minor) squabbles. Lastly, Venus in Scorpio will form an uncomfortable Square with Chiron in Aquarius (exact at 11:37pm EST). Remember, all of these are planetary transits and their effects will be felt much longer than a Moon transit. This could bring up past pains & past loves. Use this time to heal old wounds.
(Wednesday 11/25/09)- Later in the day, the Moon in Pisces forms an uncomfortable square with Mercury in Sagittarius (exact at 5:38pm EST) possibly causing miscommunications. You may find that you are not able to express yourself as easily or someone may cut you off from saying something. Next, the Moon in Pisces makes an annoying quincunx to Mars in Leo (exact at 7:21pm EST). Did you ever meet someone that says something that is completely different than how they actually act? For instance: you went out on a date, the person says that they had a fantastic time, and then they never called you? This type of disconnect (coming from yourself or coming from others) may be more pronounced around this time. Lastly, Venus in Scorpio will form a positive sextile to Uranus (R) Pisces (exact at 10:00pm EST). Remember, all of these are planetary transits and their effects will be felt much longer than a Moon transit. Routine is so boring! Desire for independence and freedom. Looking for your muse? If you are single and looking for someone that is different from the usual types, then go out tonight! You might be up for anything that is progressive and new. Strange and unusual artwork or music may catch your attention. If you are in a relationship, take a break from your rut. Do something exciting with your partner!
(Thursday 11/26/09)- Happy Thanksgiving!! In the morning, the Moon will form its monthly conjunction with Uranus (R) both in Pisces (exact at 8:08am EST). The Uranus connection can bring us unexpected inspiration/ideas & can enhance clairvoyance & channeling. This can highlight technology, electricity, inventing, and unexpected events. Due to Pisces’ influence it can also assist healing and healing arts. If you are sleeping during this time, it may cause disruption in sleep or vivid dreams. Then, the Moon in Pisces will form a flowing trine with Venus in Scorpio (exact at 9:17am EST). You could find your thoughts with friends or loved ones. It is possible to receive a compliment on how you look. Love, beauty, art, creativity, and aesthetics will be favored (and because of this reason, shopping too). Pamper yourself! This will start a short void-of-course Moon cycle that will last until the Moon transitions into pioneering Aries. Just after, Mercury in Sagittarius will form a positive sextile with Mars in Leo (exact at 9:53am EST). Remember, this is a planetary transit and its effects will be felt much longer than a Moon transit. This transit will be beneficial for mental agility, technical skills, hand/eye coordination, quickness, fast-talking, debating, and even possibly speeding…don’t get a ticket! This is a good time to put your thoughts into action! This will give us vigor, but try not to get carried away with the debating around the Thanksgiving table….not everyone may appreciate it! To enhance this, the Moon will move into aggressive Aries (exact at 10:10am EST). Aries Moons are similar to New Moons. It is considered to be a favorable time to start new projects, physical activities (like sports or working out), dynamism, leadership, competition, and action. Things to avoid are being too bossy, arrogant, and insensitive during the next 2 1/2 days. Aries rules the head, so pay attention to stress; especially of you are prone to tension headaches.
Lastly, Venus in Scorpio will form an uncomfortable square with Neptune in Aquarius (exact at 7:15pm EST). Idealism, love, & escapism all rolled up into one big rose-colored package! It is possible to meet charming people (or to be charming ourselves) around this time so, wait until another day before serious declarations of love or before signing on the dotted line (hopefully you have the day off)! Creativity, music, art, films, etc. will be favored. It is possible this could make us a little dreamy, sleepy, or fuzzy around this time. People with drug or alcohol issues could experience some issues.
(Friday 11/27/09)- Black Friday! There won’t be any planetary transits today, only Moon transits. Keep in mind that Lunar transits are shorter in duration than planetary transits. The Moon will highlight the Saturn/Pluto square (See Blog entry from 11/15/09).
Overnight, the Moon in Aries will square intense Pluto in Capricorn (exact at 2:08am EST) possibly throwing a speed bump in our path. Someone could know how to push our buttons and really get under our skin. It is important to have good boundaries with others and remember not to overstep yours. Next, the Moon in Aries will have its monthly opposition with Saturn in Libra (exact at 3:20am EST). Luckily the duration of this event is short. Sometimes this can give us a feeling of loneliness or isolation. We may feel passed over or possibly not getting the recognition that we deserve. It’s possible that our feelings may get in the way of responsibility. Later, the Sun in Sagittarius will form a beautiful trine to the Moon in Aries (exact at 8:31am EST). This is beneficial for all kinds of relationships (especially with children) and assists in making us feel loved and supported. This is also an ideal time to be close to pets or nature. Very pleasant indeed! The remainder of the day will be under the lighthearted influence of the Moon in Sagittarius.
(Saturday 11/28/09)- Early in the morning, the Moon in Aries forming a flowing trine with Mars in Leo (exact at 5:40am EST). Our actions will be in harmony with how we feel. We may crave action around this time or have more energy. People will be inclined to fight for what they believe is right. Later in the morning, the Moon in Aries makes a flowing trine to Mercury in Sagittarius (exact at 10:27am EST). This transit will assist us to express how we feel. It will be much easier to speak with friends and loved ones during this time. We may have an urge to be social around this transit and is highly beneficial for all kinds of relationships.
In the afternoon, the Moon will positively aspected the super triple conjunction (Jupiter, Chiron, & Neptune). Use this time for healing and manifestation. The Moon in Aries makes a positive sextile with Jupiter in Aquarius (exact at 12:37pm EST) helping us to feel optimistic and/or lucky. This is an ideal time to be with friends or to work with a group of people. It is also beneficial for spirituality/religion, higher or continuing education, horses, law/legal matters, advertising, sales, and publishing. Then, the Moon in Aries forms a positive sextile with (the “Wounded Healer”) Chiron in Aquarius (exact at 2:32pm EST). You may be presented with an opportunity to heal or to be healed. Holistic and alternative medicine is especially favored. Serendipitous moments abound! Next, the Moon in Aries forms a positive sextile to Neptune in Aquarius (exact at 6:32pm EST) causing our imagination/creativity to soar. This transit is also beneficial for daydreaming, idealism, intuition, romance, music, poetry, abstract ideas, mysticism, etc. It is possible to be more charming around this transit. Anyone have rose-colored glasses? This will start a 12+ hour void-of-course Moon cycle that will last until tomorrow morning when the Moon transitions into stabile Taurus. Lastly, the Moon will form an annoying quincunx with Venus in Scorpio (exact at 11:25pm EST) possibly causing a monkey wrench in the love department. It could be that the object of our affections is somewhat inaccessible around time…. unfortunately the same could be true with our finances too! Double-check your bank account before making a big purchase.
Mark your calendars! Next Tuesday (12/1) Uranus goes “Direct” and Full Moon on Wednesday (12/2) in Gemini!
The above transits are often felt collectively but you would need to know where within your chart that they would fall. As always, I am available for a professional astrological reading. I now have a variety of charts to choose from (relationship, life path, time-line, etc). I can do readings in-person or over the phone. Or if you’re not into having a reading I can just supply a chart. Please feel free to contact me for more information! Have a great week! Bye for now……
Peace & Light,
