Happy Thanksgiving! Hope you’re having a great day. In light of so many folks spending Thanksgiving alone this year, I thought I’d repost this lovely blurb on boundaries from the book “The Language of Letting Go”. Boundary-setting with our families is particularly hard, so here’s a pep talk. Remember, your home is your castle, and so is your emotional health. You can decide who you let in and who you keep outside in the surrounding forest:

“Having boundaries doesn’t complicate life; boundaries simplify life.

There is a positive aspect to boundary setting. We learn to listen to ourselves and identify what hurt us and what we don’t like. But we also learn to identify what feels good.

When we are willing to take some risks and begin actively doing so, we will enhance the quality of our life.

What do we like? What feels good? What brings us pleasure? Whose company do we enjoy? What helps us to feel good in the morning? What’s a real treat in our life? What are the small, daily activities that make us feel nurtured and cared for?

What appeals to our emotional, spiritual, mental, and physical self? What actually feels good to us?

We have deprived ourselves too long. There is no need to do that anymore, no need. If it feels good, and the consequences are self-loving and not self-defeating, do it!

Today, I will do for myself those little things that make life more pleasurable. I will not deny myself healthy treats.”

The Sun has finished it’s travels through Scorpio, and we’ve officially entered the sign of Sagittarius, the Archer. For the next month, we will be reassessing our Truth, and aligning ourselves with new meaning and purpose. The Archer chooses a goal, and focuses her energy there before releasing her arrow. Now is the time to examine our goals, and prioritize what is most important to us.

We’ve been through SO much transformation this year, and most of us are feeling exhausted… but we aren’t out of the woods yet. Jupiter and Pluto joined together a couple of weeks ago, and now Jupiter is on it’s way to catch up with Saturn at the end of December. Once that last conjunction happens, and these planets begin to move into Aquarius, things will start to turn a corner.

This week is manageable, but also a gradual build up to our fifth eclipse of the year, a lunar eclipse next Monday, November 30th in Gemini. During an eclipse, hidden issues arise and come to light to be handled – and since it’s a Full Moon – the issues are emotional in nature.

Also, the planet Neptune is at a stop all week, about to turn Direct this Saturday in Pisces. This will heighten our intuition, but also contribute to brain fog, fatigue, and feelings of being lost. If you feel these things just relax into it and stay in the present moment. Neptune is great for creativity and spiritual pursuits, so put your energy there.

Monday, November 23rd: Moon in Pisces. Moon in a water sign makes this an emotional and spiritual start to the week. Pisces makes things fuzzy and undefined… not the best day for negotiation. Mercury trine Neptune at 8:40pm Pacific encourages healing through inspiration, imagination and spiritual strength.

Tuesday, November 24th: Moon in Aries chases Mars, and also trines the Sun newly in Sagittarius. It’s a wonderful, fiery day, so be careful about emotional outbursts or headstrong behavior. It’s a creative day full of ideas!

Wednesday, November 25th: Moon in Aries, and conjuncts Mars and Black Moon Lilith. Tests might come up around your identity. The best use of this energy is setting boundaries where needed.

Thursday, November 26th: THANKSGIVING! Moon void-of-course in Aries at 3:45pm Pacific, then slows waaaay down as it enters Taurus at 7:43pm. Even though many of us will be away from our families this year, it will still be a day of feasting, overindulgence and sensory delights. Live it up!

Friday, November 27th: Moon in Taurus. We are in the realm of the Full Moon eclipse on Monday, November 30th, so things could be getting intense. Any activity that awakens the five senses is highlighted. Get outside today and appreciate nature. Very passionate date night.

Saturday, November 28th: Moon at the end of Taurus and Neptune stationing Direct. Love, beauty, passion, commitment, nature, animals, and the Divine Feminine are the energies to focus on this weekend. Look back to June 23rd, when Neptune went retrograde, to see what themes have arisen for you from this transit. When Neptune is stationary there’s two paths we can take: the first is inspiration, clear dreams, heightened intuition, and mystical revelations. The other path is escapism, leading to illusions, hyper-sensitivity, drama, and over indulgence in substances. Try not to overindulge in alcohol, drugs, sugar, shopping, etc.

Sunday, November 29th: Moon in Gemini. Very chatty day full of socializing and online purchases. The Full Moon Eclipse is tomorrow, so no big decisions today.

Soft animal

“You do not have to be good.
You do not have to walk on your knees
for a hundred miles through the desert, repenting.
You only have to let the soft animal of your body
love what it loves.
Tell me about despair, yours, and I will tell you mine.
Meanwhile the world goes on.
Meanwhile the sun and the clear pebbles of the rain
are moving across the landscapes,
over the prairies and the deep trees,
the mountains and the rivers.
Meanwhile the wild geese, high in the clean blue air,
are heading home again.
Whoever you are, no matter how lonely,
the world offers itself to your imagination,
calls to you like the wild geese, harsh and exciting –
over and over announcing your place
in the family of things.”

M. Oliver

All things change

“Once upon a time there was a Chinese farmer whose horse ran away. That evening, all of his neighbors came around to commiserate. They said, “We are so sorry to hear your horse has run away. This is most unfortunate.” The farmer said, “Maybe.” The next day the horse came back bringing seven wild horses with it, and in the evening everybody came back and said, “Oh, isn’t that lucky. What a great turn of events. You now have eight horses!” The farmer again said, “Maybe.”

The following day his son tried to break one of the horses, and while riding it, he was thrown and broke his leg. The neighbors then said, “Oh dear, that’s too bad,” and the farmer responded, “Maybe.” The next day the conscription officers came around to conscript people into the army, and they rejected his son because he had a broken leg. Again all the neighbors came around and said, “Isn’t that great!” Again, he said, “Maybe.”

We saw some huge shifts last week, mostly around our inner boundaries, energy levels, and the over-arching 2020 transformations. Mars went Direct last Friday, but is very slow-moving, so it will remain at 15 Aries for the rest of November. If you have any planets near 15 Aries, 15, Cancer, 15 Libra or 15 Capricorn, they are getting super heated and charged up with Mars energy this month. Mars activates our drives, passions, lust and ambition, so look at how and where these aspects are cropping up in your life. Use November to plan which way you want to go, but wait until December to take decisive action.

We also experienced the momentous conjunction between Jupiter and Pluto at 22 Capricorn last Thursday – the same degree as the Saturn/Pluto conjunction last January that heralded the pandemic. It’s terrible to see the cases spiking again. Jupiter expands whatever it touches, and in this case it’s spreading the virus to epic proportions. Please take care of yourselves. On a personal level, this conjunction brings new ways to manage and grow with the massive transformations in your life this year.

Last Saturday night we reset our emotions with the New Moon at 22 degrees Scorpio. Did you have any visions or clear dreams this weekend? Messages came to each of us about the future through revelations, experiences, dreams, or even the words of friends. We take our first steps on this new path this week. Scorpio is the sign of regeneration, and is symbolized in the tarot by the Death card, which means one door closes and another one opens. Look to where you want to rebirth yourself, and put all of your focus there.

And there’s more! Sunday, today, we had Venus (Love) in a square with Pluto (Reformation), which sets the tone for the week. Venus is in Libra, where her energies are expressed in a delectable way. Libra demands equality, justice and fairness, and these issues could come up in our relationships this week. Pluto makes it imperative that our relationships evolve to match our New Moon path. This is the first of three squares Venus will make this week! We wrap up with a big reality check when Venus squares Saturn on Thursday.

Monday, November 16th: Moon in Sagittarius. Venus square Jupiter. The essence of the New Moon and Venus/Pluto square is still strong. The mood will be lighter today, just ride the waves. Spend some time outside to clear your mind. Excellent day to read philosophy, or spend your energy on being wildly romantic or creative 🙂

Tuesday, November 17th: Moon in Capricorn, and Mercury opposes Uranus. Lots of electricity and wild ideas in the air. Ground yourself through working hard, especially on things you’ve been avoiding. Issues could arise around understanding, truth, and honesty, as well as challenges with business. Focus on the goal.

Wednesday, November 18th: Moon in Capricorn. Moon approaches the “Big three” in Capricorn i.e. Jupiter, Pluto and Saturn. Heaviness can result and you may not feel like doing a lot, which is fine. Do not demand anything from authority figures today because they will be resistant. Capricorn also brings certainty.

Thursday, November 19th: Moon in Aquarius and Venus squares Saturn. Reality check with relationships today. If you can, focus on what your mind tells you rather than your heart. Embrace reality. Also, let your creative genius out to play today. Good for connecting with friends and groups of folks.

Friday, November 20th: Moon in Aquarius, but void-of-course at 4:49pm Pacific for the rest of the day. Plans could change, best to go with the flow. If you need to have meetings or work through agreements, do it in the morning. Remember to focus on balance and win-win resolutions. No risk-taking.

Saturday, November 21st: Moon void ALL DAY in Aquarius until entering Pisces at 8:06pm Pacific!! Venus enters Scorpio and Sun into Sagittarius. No risk-taking or negotiation during a void-of-course Moon. Don’t buy anything either, if you can help it. Best to be creative and work on things already started.

Sunday, November 22nd: Moon in Pisces. Swim around your intuitions, ideas and creativity.

Be your own Hero

The Victim Trap, from “The Language of Letting Go”

The belief that life has to be hard and difficult is the belief that makes a martyr.

We can change our negative beliefs about life, and whether we have the power to stop our pain and take care of ourselves.

We aren’t helpless. We can solve our problems. We do have power – not to change or control others – but to solve the problems that are ours to solve.

Using each problem that comes our way to “prove” that life is hard and we are helpless – this is codependency. It’s the victim trap.

Life does not have to be difficult. In fact, it can be smooth. Life is good. We don’t have to “awfulize” it, or ourselves. We don’t have to live on the underside.

We do have power, more power than we know, even in the difficult times. And the difficult times don’t prove life is bad; they are part of the ups and downs of life; often, they work out for the best.

We can change our attitude; we can change ourselves; sometimes, we can change our circumstances.

Life is challenging. Sometimes, there’s more pain than we asked for; sometimes, there’s more joy than we imagined.

It’s all part of the package, and the package is good.

We are not victims of life. We can learn to remove ourselves as victims of life. By letting go of our belief that life has to be hard and difficult, we make our life much easier.

Today, Universe, help me let go of my belief that life is so hard, so awful, or so difficult. Help me replace that belief with a healthier, more realistic view.

There are HUGE planetary events this week, but we are in the dark of the Moon, so just take it easy and rest. The Moon is waning until this Saturday evening, November 14th, when we have a New Moon in Scorpio.

Currently, Mars is at a dead stop in the sky, and will turn Direct (move forwards) on Friday – just in time for the New Moon in Scorpio on Saturday night. This is not the week to take action, it is a week of reflection, blending with the already quiet nature of the dark moon. We reassess our ambitions while Mars is retrograde, and revaluate our life path and direction. Next week we can move forward in a fresh alignment with the life and world we want to create. Here are some questions to ask yourself this week with regards to the Mars station:

What kind of life do you want to lead, and are your current actions in alignment with creating it? If not, perhaps it’s time to make some changes.

Are your goals in alignment with your true and highest self?

Your energy and drive are valuable; is it worth what you’re spending our time on?

The Mars station is a big deal, and it could bring a rise in tension this week, but there’s something even BIGGER happening! The REAL news, is Jupiter and Pluto meeting together at the same degree that started the pandemic in January. These two heavyweights will form a conjunction on Saturday at 22 Capricorn – the same degree as the Saturn/Pluto conjunction on January 12th which spawned the pandemic. This means it will feel like we are returning to the beginning of the story, but with all of the insight we’ve had this year. Jupiter expands and Pluto brings the disease, so prepare for a huge spike in cases. We will also see huge shifts in world power, since Capricorn rules the establishment. Perhaps another market crash…

This is the third and final Jupiter – Pluto conjunction in this cycle. It’s very strong and will be with this us throughout November. The first two conjunctions happened on April 5th and June 30th, so look back to these dates to see what themes you might be revisiting. What problems remain unsolved? What have you learned since those conjunctions? Has your definition of success changed? Have you found a sound basis for optimism?

While Jupiter can indicate success, joy, justice, expansion, religious understanding, and such positive qualities as generosity, optimism and hospitality, in essence Jupiter amplifies. Here Jupiter amplifies Pluto, Pluto is not only about destruction, it can indicate deep healing, tranquility, social and spiritual reform and transformation, necessary repairs, and rebirth collective and personal. How do we get the best from Pluto? Do the research. Make changes conscientiously. Include the greater good in your definition of success. Let go of bad habits and cultivate good ones. Force is not the right approach. Silent contemplation can help you find the right timing and the right place. Above all, take this opportunity to learn about yourself, about your goals, and about society. Know when to turn off the news. Enjoy the tranquil beauty of nature. Find pride in survival, and allow the humbling that society has suffered to bring you a deeper appreciation for who and what you cherish.

Monday, November 9th: Moon in Virgo. This is great energy to start off the week. Get organized, tie up loose ends and make a plan for what you’d like to accomplish. Mercury (Virgo’s ruler) is in the last degrees of Libra about to move into Scorpio tomorrow, so notice insights regarding relationships.

Tuesday, November 10th: Moon in Virgo, and Mercury reenters Scorpio at 0 degrees. Ground through nurturing your needs and organizing your home life. Good day for releasing, purging and breaking bad habits. With Mars stationing, watch out for crazy drivers; avoid social awkwardness.

Wednesday, November 11th: Moon in Libra. Normally a very sociable time, but take some time for yourself today, and bring your life into balance.

Thursday, November 12th: Moon in Libra, and Jupiter exactly conjunct Pluto at 22 Capricorn. Identify areas in your life that require reform and repair. Let go of habits and beliefs from the past that create unnecessary suffering. Meditate.

Friday, November 13th: Moon in Scorpio and Mars Direct at 15 Aries. Plans could change, best to go with the flow. If you need to have meetings or work through agreements, do it in the morning. Remember to focus on balance and win-win resolutions. Excellent date night.

Saturday, November 14th: New Moon in Scorpio at 9:07pm. Do Magick! Expect occult experiences and deep conversations with people. With Mars still retrograde, reflect on passions and think about what corner of your life needs action.

Sunday, November 15th: New Moon in Scorpio continues.

We had a life changing Full Moon Halloween on Saturday! Did you feel the intensity? It was an eye-opener, with the Full Moon conjunct Uranus at 8 Taurus – which also means the Sun and Uranus were in exact opposition. This is liberation, the desire to do something different, alongside revelations about how you want to live in the future. Whatever unresolved issues have been hanging around for the last two years, Saturday’s Moon gave you the needed clarity and answers. The power of this Full Moon will continue to unfold this week.

Also, the Sun traveling through the tunnels of Scorpio gives us opportunities to define our boundaries – especially the internal ones. Can you hold the line if your Will is tested? Can you push away that extra cookie? If someone asks you to do something that goes against your heart and experience, will you let them cross your boundary? Scorpio wants you to define what you’ll put up with and what you won’t – and to mean it. The Universe is asking us to be real, and get honest with ourselves this month. This ties in to the greater purpose of the year 2020 as we go through the “Great Awakening” – we are each healing our relationship with ourselves.

Are your actions and goals in alignment with your true and highest self?

As for the election, it is inextricably tied to the unearthing of America’s shadow, as our country approaches it’s Pluto return. All the repressed, toxic energy under the surface of the United States is coming up to be purged and healed. I see the toxic underbelly as racism, gender discrimination, and the disparities between the rich and the poor. The forgotten people, the mentally ill, the incarcerated… all need to be acknowledged and treated with maturity and vision. Rampant greed must be checked and the welfare of all people made the priority. On Tuesday either we will have a new president, or we will have another four years with a man who represents this shadow side. Try and remember that the Big Picture is really about the US confronting and dealing with it’s shadow side.

Monday, November 2nd: Moon in Gemini. Mercury is Gemini’s ruler, and is currently standing still over our heads at 26 Libra. Mercury goes Direct on Tuesday at 9:50am Pacific. If you have important agreements to hammer out with people, aim to do it anytime after Wednesday. We will see huge amounts of information today and tomorrow as Mercury stations – be sure and research facts.

Tuesday, November 3rd: Moon in Gemini, Mercury Direct at 9:50am Pacific. This is going to be a crazy day with hearsay and different, conflicting currents of information. Stay grounded, and try to stay off the roads if possible. Electronics might experience hiccups. This will be a crazy day in the news, and things will not be as they appear to be at first. Take heart. Why oh why do we have an election while Mercury stations Direct… I don’t know.

Wednesday, November 4th: Moon VOC in Gemini until 1:45pm Pacific. This is the day to stay inside if possible. The Cancer Moon in the evening will bring emotions and sensitivity to the Mercury Direct instability. If there’s going to be protesting over the election, it will likely start tonight.

Thursday, November 5th: Moon in Cancer is part of a big Water trine today. Moon in Cancer trines Sun in Scorpio, and they both trine Neptune in Pisces. It’s a deliciously creative day, so let poetic, artistic inspirations flow. Psychic intuitiveness runs high, and romance is in the air. People will be sensitive today, so allow for people’s feelings.

Friday, November 6th: Moon in Cancer. Lots of sensitivity, sweetness and nostalgia, however Mercury squares Saturn once again. Communications could be limited or take a serious tone, and diplomacy may be difficult with authority figures. On the other side of the equation, it’s a great day to find authenticity with people. Organize your time and practice those internal boundaries.

Saturday, November 7th: Moon VOC in Cancer. Day of rest after a crazy week. Get creative and connect with friends; use your imagination and be receptive to inspiration and visions. Venus trine Uranus will bring some excitement to art and romance. Watch for unconventional romance and push creative boundaries.
