We begin this week with today’s New Moon at 22 Aries! We are reanimating ourselves, and hitting the reset button on our ambitions. It’s an exciting time, because each of us is seeing new options in our lives. If there is something you want to grow this year, “plant the seed” and start it NOW! We are rebirthed when the Sun is in Aries, and this week in particular, we will see some solutions to all of the problems we encountered last year. This week the Moon is waxing (growing bigger) each day and the Sun moves through the last degrees of Aries, entering Taurus next Monday, April 19th.

Also this coming week, Venus, the Sun and Mercury each square Pluto. There is an old structure in your life that is about to change or evolve; something you thought would NEVER change. Maybe it’s your job, or city, or attitude about life… it is shifting and you can feel it change this week. Venus (Love and trust) squared Pluto (evolution) today, evolving our vulnerability with other people. Maybe we have better internal boundaries, or are taking better care of our hearts.

NOTE: Pluto is currently at 26 Capricorn, but the “Pluto return” for the United States is 27 Capricorn. This means Pluto is ONE DEGREE from the exact Pluto return of the U.S. What this means is all of the twisted, toxic energy in the US is coming up to be purged – racism, political power struggles, white supremacy, sexism, faschism, wealth disparity, guns… it’s all coming to be RELEASED and healed in the next few years. The US’s exact Pluto return is next February, 2022.

Monday, April 12th: Moon into Taurus, and Ramadan begins. The week after a New Moon gives us fresh energy, and a feeling of rebirth. Watch for stubborness; instead slow down like the Taurus bull and take it a step at a time. Practice patience.

Tuesday, April 13th: Moon in Taurus. The Moon is exalted here, so we’re feeling grounded and emotionally centered today. We might be drawn to indulgence of the senses too, which is a great use of this energy. Sun sextiles Mars, which syncs up the Ego and the Drive in each of us. This is an invigorating aspect that can bring up our irritations, so stay away from arguments.

Wednesday, April 14th: Moon in Taurus, AND Venus into Taurus! Venus is the planet of Love, and in Taurus she enters her rulership. This makes the next few weeks a powerful time for self expression, love, art, nature, women and relationships. Slow way down and savor all sensations. Spend time with your lover, or go out and get one.

Thursday, April 15th: Moon in Gemini, and Sun sextiles Jupiter. We are drawn to sociability, sharing and TALKING, and the Sun and Jupiter keep our focus on the big picture. The air is alive with optimism and success.

Friday, April 16th: Moon in Gemini, and Sun squares Pluto. This aspect can take off our mask, OR bring someone else’s secret to light. There’s an element of seriousness to today’s activities. Pay attention. It’s an evolution of the Soul today, and we find there are certain directions we can’t move towards, no matter how comfortable and familiar the path.

Saturday, April 17th: Moon in Gemini, into Cancer at 1:25pm Pacific. There is a TON of aspects today – ten to be exact. There will be a LOT of energy flying around, so go slow and let things unfold. Real clarity on today’s issues won’t come for a couple of days. Mercury square Pluto is one of the bigger aspects which can bring cathartic conversations and a real clearing of the air. With the sensitive Cancer Moon, choose your words wisely.

Sunday, April 18th: Moon in Cancer, and another flurry of aspects. There’s five more – including Mercury cazimi (disappearing) into the fires of the Sun. Communications might suffer from ego wars – so watch for that. Also Mars sextile Pluto which syncs up our Drive with our current Evolution.

We start the week basking in the glow of the Full Moon in Libra today. With the Sun, Venus and Chiron conjunct in Aries, opposing the Moon. We have the opportunity for strong healing and new understanding in our relationships. This is phenomenol… it’s rare and I’ve never seen it in my lifetime. This grand conjunction is exact today and will remain with us through the week ahead. The only thing about Chiron, is sometimes it brings healing through a crisis. Women, artists, painters, or other sensitive, creative people may face a crisis related to well being.

We are currently harvesting what we began last October, when the Sun was in Libra. The energies of this Full Moon will slowly unfold over the week ahead. We will have peak experiences in relationships, love, friendship, communication, agreements, fairness, justice and balance. With the Sun in Aries, we are reminded that loving yourself is important, because if you can do that, you will attract people that will love you in return.

On the other side of the equation, there IS an element of chaos occurring that started last year, and continues through 2022: Pluto in Capricorn (catharsis) exactly square to Eris in Aries (Discord). This is also an aspect that occurs very rarely – in fact most people have never lived through this square. These two heavenly bodies are extremely slow moving, so when there’s an aspect it lasts for a very long time. I believe the chaos engendered by this square is the prelude to the U.S.’s Pluto return. That will be coming up in a couple more years.

So on a personal level, we all might be feeling some relief, but on a societal level, we are in the throes of massive change. As a reminder, ALL of the planets are fully Direct until the end of April! Everything in the sky is moving forward (Direct) right now, which is ALSO rare. It’s a great time to gather forward momentum on anything that’s important to you. We had wonderful, healing energy in March, and it will continue for the next few weeks.

Monday, March 29th: Full Moon in Libra still active, but goes void of course at 5pm. We are tuned in to what feels right, and doesn’t feel right, with the people around us. With Chiron in play, we can bring tremendous healing to old wounds. Libra is the scales, so we are weighing how we feel in each situation. Mercury conjunct Neptune in the evening can make facts unclear, but can also bring inspiration to writers and speakers.

Tuesday, March 30th: Moon in Scorpio brings seriousness and intensity; If a boundary needs to be set, today is the day. Scorpio moon is where we draw boundaries to emotionally protect ourselves. T square today, with the Moon squaring Saturn and opposing Uranus at the same time. Stay neutral and be observational in any tiffs or spats.

Wednesday, March 31st: Moon in Scorpio continues, and goes void at 5:30pm Pacific. Don’t let anyone steal your peace. Scorpio’s ruler, Mars, is in Gemini which can bring a “war of words” or online spats. Think things through before speaking. Scorpio Moon is for rebirthing and transformation.

Thursday, April 1st: Moon in Sagittarius. Adventures await! Revisit your goals and update your plan to achieve them. The mood is lighter and communications are enhanced, but there are no major aspects today.

Friday, April 2nd: Moon in Sagittarius with a flurry of aspects. Moon trines Venus which enhances creativity and love. Mercury sextiles Pluto which brings evolution, healing and catharsis to communications. Writer can make good use of this aspect. Past lessons and flashes of the future could appear with the Moon opposing the North Node, so watch for markers and insights.

Saturday, April 3rd: Moon in Capricorn and Mercury into Aries. It’s Easter weekend, and we resurrect ourselves. Mercury entering Aries gives us a new start in our thinking and communications. We find it easier to be direct now, and to speak from the heart.

Sunday, April 4th: Moon in Capricorn (in her detriment) and we enter the 4th quarter Moon. No big aspects today – try not to sink into pessimism with the Moon in this hard place. Use the energy to get out into the garden and do some hard work. With the 4th quarter Moon, we begin a week of rest.

Spring Equinox 0° Aries

Persephone Awakening’, by Jesper Alvermark, aka Zabani

I want to share the Sabian Symbol for Sun entering Aries, and the start of Spring. Today is the real New Year – when the Sun moves to 0 degrees Aries. Here’s Dane Rudhyar‘s insight into what this day means! Happy Spring:

PHASE 1 (ARIES 1°): A WOMAN JUST RISEN FROM THE SEA. A SEAL IS EMBRACING HER.  

KEYNOTE: Emergence of new forms and of the potentiality of consciousness.

This is the first of the 360 phases of a universal and multilevel cyclic process which aims at the actualization of a particular set of potentialities. These potentialities, in the Sabian symbols, refer to the development of man’s individualized consciousness — the consciousness of being an individual person with a place and function (a “destiny”) in the planetary organism of the Earth, and in a particular type of human society and culture.

To be individually conscious means to emerge out of the sea of generic and collective consciousness — which to the emerged mind appears to be unconsciousness. Such an emergence is the primary event. It is the result of some basic action: a leaving behind, an emerging from a womb or matrix, here symbolized by the sea.

Such an action is not to be considered a powerful, positive statement of individual being. In the beginning is the Act; but it is often an imperceptible, insecure act. The small tender germ out of the seed does not loudly proclaim its existence. It has to pierce through the crust of the soil still covered with the remains of the past. It is all potentiality and a minimum of actual presence.

In the symbol, therefore, the emergent entity is a Woman; symbolically speaking, a form of existence still close to the unconscious depths of generic biological nature, filled with the desire to be rather than self-assertion. The woman is seen embraced by a seal because the seal is a mammal which once had experienced a biological, evolutionary but relatively unconscious emergence, yet which retraced its steps and “returned to the womb” of the sea. The seal, therefore, represents a regressive step. It embraces the Woman who has emerged, because every emergent process at first is susceptible to failure. This process is indeed surrounded by the memory, the ghosts of past failures during previous cycles. The impulse upward is held back by regressive fear or insecurity; the issue of the conflict depends on the relative strength of the future-ward and the past-ward forces.

The possibility of success and that of failure is implied throughout the entire process of actualization. Every release of potentiality contains this two-fold possibility. It inevitably opens up two paths: one leads to “perfection” in consciousness, the other to “disintegration” – the return to the undifferentiated state (the state of humus, manure, cosmic dust – i.e. to the symbolic “great Waters of space,” to chaos) 

This symbol characterizes the first of five stages which are repeated at three levels. This stage represents the initial statement, or theme, of the five-fold series which refers to the first level: IMPULSE TO BE.”

A Hag’s guide to Spring Cleaning

“A Hag’s Guide to Spring Cleaning” by Alexis J. Cunningfolk

“Scrub your skin with the dirt from a hollow hill.

Brush your body with raven feathers and the blessings of a million hags gone before who have never given a shit about the what looks “nice” to others.

Take all the pots and pans out of your kitchen, clean them with black salt, and bring them outside with your spoons and knives. Make a racket to wake up the earth and let the neighbors know that their local hag has woken up from winter slumber.

Water your garden with the tears shed by those suffering from fragile masculinity to help them grow towards their heart instead of their fear.

Stitch up your worn out clothes with the red thread of intersectionality and luck.

Scare the life back into your heart by grinning so loudly in the mirror that you can see every tooth, fang, and monster song gurgling forth from the back of your throat.

Go to a crossroads, turn to the east, and spit three times so that you never forget how to find your way back.

Stain your lips and fingers with the blood of berries.

Braid thorns into your hair and rub rose dust into your eyebrows.

Never say you’re sorry for making it to another spring. Cackle instead and celebrate the ugly bits that have kept you alive.

Lace up your boots with the stories of your ancestors raging against powers they were told were unbreakable but have long turned to dust.

Greet your witchen kin with right hands grasped, left hand over the heart of the other, foreheads touching. Breath in, breath out. Say, “I fucking love you.”

Remember that hags like you grow like weeds and springtime will never be the same. “

We are in the dark of the Moon this week, so just take it easy and rest. The Moon is waning until next Monday, December 14th, when we have a New Moon Solar eclipse at 23 Sagittarius.

Happy New Year! January is the month of the ancient Roman god Janus, who rules doorways, and looks forwards and backwards at the same time. He symbolizes transitions, and the portal between the past and the future.

This god is appropriate for all of 2021, as we begin the tussles between Saturn in Aquarius and Uranus in Taurus. These squares between these two planets will manifest on Earth as the push and pull between old world ideologies, and the advancements of the technological age.

It’s very close to being mutual reception, which is when two planets are in each others’ ruling signs. Saturn (responsibility and discipline) has a lot in common with Taurus (practicality and slow growth). Uranus (revolution) is the ruler of Aquarius (liberation, revelation). This year, we will be wanting to push forward past old ideas to a new paradigm, but the progress will be slow. Patience is the key.

Last year, in 2020, our world and personal lives were torn to pieces. Pluto, the god of literal and metaphoric death, presided over last year. In 2021, we will begin to lay the foundation for a new way forward, but the key is deciding on personal direction. Neptune in Pisces is also squaring the North Node of the Moon in Gemini all year, asking us to access intuition for finding this new path. You can’t think your way into it, you have to use your gut instincts. This is very important this year.

Monday, January 4th: Moon VOC in Virgo starting in the afternoon. Try and avoid spending all of your $600 bonus today. It is EXCELLENT to start a new year diet and exercise routine though! The big news is Mercury conjunct Pluto around 5pm Pacific. Avoid power plays and doom scrolling on social media. Issues of control might come up in communication, but there’s possibilies for deep understanding and clearing of the air. Don’t go to extremes in your thinking this week; healing is available.

Tuesday, January 5th: Moon in Libra brings a need for balance, fairness and justice. If an issue in your life feels out of your control or unjust, gently take action today. Libra wants you to use tact, and maneuver towards win-win situations. Talk to your boss, or hammer out agreements, today and tomorrow.

Wednesday, January 6th: Moon in Libra enters the 4th quarter, and we are in a balsamic Moon until next Wednesday. You have permission to rest and watch movies. Mars enters Taurus at 2:27pm Pacific, which means the massive restructure of our identities from Mars in Aries last year has completed it’s first phase. Unfortunately, this could bring battles over territories.

Thursday, January 7th: Moon in Scorpio. The mood of the day could be frustrating, because the Moon will be squaring most of the outer planets, then opposing Uranus at 12:16pm Pacific. Don’t push people to meet your needs, instead nurture yourself. Stay in your own front yard.

Friday, January 8th: Moon in Scorpio, void at 6pm Pacific. Lots of aspects and changes today so go with the flow. Mercury goes into Aquarius and our minds become electrified by possibilities, ideas and expanding consciousness. Venus sullenly enters Capricorn and romance dies. We’re all about committment now, and long-lasting partnerships. Are the fundamentals there for this to really work in the long term? Expect this question to come up a lot in the next few weeks.

Saturday, January 9th: Moon in Sagittarius. Have outside adventures and put energy towards your goals! Venus trines Mars, allowing achievable resolutions between partners. You can get some foundational stuff decided in relationships today. Get it done by early evening though, because Mercury conjunct the hard eye of Saturn in the evening could bring stubborness and pessimism.

Sunday, January 10th: Moon in Sagittarius, then at 10:30am void ALL DAY!! Be creative, rest and have fun. No big aspects and no ground under our feet today, so no big decisions or conversations.

Week of December 21st: Winter Solstice

“Druids Cutting the Mistletoe on the Sixth Day of the Moon” by Henri Paul Motte (France, c.1900)

CURRENTLY:
Sun at 0 Capricorn
Mercury at 0 Capricorn
Venus at 5 Sagittarius
Mars at 23 Aries (Rulership)
Jupiter at 0 Aquarius
Saturn at 0 Aquarius (rulership)
Neptune at 18 Pisces (rulership, strong)

Tonight, Sunday, December 20th, 2020 is Winter Solstice eve. It is the longest night of the year. Tomorrow morning at dawn, 7:21am Pacific, the Sun rises on the new year. This is because the days grow longer from this point on until the climax at the longest day on June 21st, 2021. Important to think about what you’d like to “grow” in the New Year. Christmas tree lights symbolize finding hope in times of darkness.

That’s the main undercurrent of what’s happening right now: REBIRTH. There’s also the Great Conjunction between Saturn and Jupiter at 0 Aquarius, which is a huge event. lt underlines this rebirth of the Sun. Saturn has been in Capricorn, it’s natural home, for the last 2.5 years, exposing materialism, lack of integrity, and the misuse of power. With Saturn’s entrance into Aquarius, our society will be completely transformed, perhaps leaning towards the promised utopia of Aquarius.

We’re already experiencing some of this shift in the form of lockdowns – Saturn limiting our social (Aquarius) connections. Also, working remotely (Saturn) online (Aquarius). 

There’s also aspects happening that are resetting us for 2021:

  1. Mercury conjunct the Sun (combust) at 0 Capricorn.
  2. Pluto at 23 Capricorn exactly square Mars (which is conjunct Eris at 23 Aries).
  3. Week starts with the Moon at 23 Pisces.
  4. The Saturn/Jupiter conjunction enters a square to Uranus in Taurus, and it will be in effect through 2022. 

These squares between these specific planets can bring fighting and conflict, so be cautious in the world.

Monday, December 21st: Moon void in Pisces, into Aries at 2:32pm Pacific. WINTER SOLSTICE. Sun enters Capricorn at 2am Pacific. This morning’s sunrise sees the rebirth of the Sun. This is one of the most magical days of the year. Immerse yourself in the wonderful, fresh energies alive in the air today. The Sky King (Jupiter) spreads his wings (Aquarius) and escapes the Earth (Capricorn). All of the cooped-up, earthbound energy of the last two years is shaken off, and we have a new path before us of freedom.

Tuesday, December 22nd: Moon in Aries adds to the feeling of rebirth! Put plans into action, but be aware people won’t be all that patient, or listen well. Drive cautiously.

Wednesday, December 23rd: Moon in Aries, but void-of-course at 2:51pm Pacific. Try to avoid signing anything or having important conversations during a void Moon. This is a volatile day, since the Moon conjuncts Mars and Black Moon Lilith, and Mars square Pluto is exact. Tests might come up around your identity. The best use of this energy is setting boundaries where needed, but watch out for irritation and anger. Today begins the final squares of Mars/Eris to Pluto, Saturn and Jupiter. Tempers will be testy through February 2021. Be cautious driving.

Thursday, December 24th: Christmas Eve. Moon in Taurus. Things slow waaaay down today and we indulge in sensual delights. Although you may be stuck at home and away from your families this year, get yourself an excellent dinner. Taurus loves food.

Friday, December 25th: Christmas Day. Moon in Taurus. Slow, quiet day. Any activity that awakens the five senses is highlighted. Get outside today and appreciate nature.

Saturday, December 26th: Moon void-of-course at the end of Taurus all day, and then into Gemini at 3:33pm Pacific. Energy picks up as the Moon trines the lovely Saturn/Jupiter conjunction in Aquarius, so expect some communication or insight into your future path.

Sunday, December 27th: Moon in Gemini. Very chatty day full of socializing and online purchases. We are two days from a Full Moon in Cancer, so walk cautiously around people’s feelings.

We are in the dark of the Moon this week, so just take it easy and rest. The Moon is waning until next Monday, December 14th, when we have a New Moon Solar eclipse at 23 Sagittarius.

We are in between eclipses – between the lunar eclipse in Gemini on Nov. 30th, and the upcoming solar eclipse next Monday. We are in touch with our subconscious and what we need on a deep level, as well as wrestling with what we believe. Since the Moon is balsamic or waning this week, it’s a time of “wrapping things up” and endings… which includes the end of this volatile year 2020.

We’ve all been forced to reevaluate our lives this year in the face of the massive societal changes brought about by the pandemic. The world has been restructured, along with our identities. Society has been torn down, old systems have been ripped out, and we are letting go of old, toxic, moldy, dead energies. Saturn, Pluto and Jupiter have influenced this upheaval by going through various conjunctions in the sign of the “boardroom” – Capricorn. We are releasing the “traditional”, the established and the conventional for a future that (hopefully) benefits everyone.

This month, we’re coming up to the Winter Solstice and the Sun’s entrance into Capricorn on December 21st. On the same day, there’s a paradigm shift when Jupiter and Saturn have an exact conjunction at 0 Aquarius. This happens every 20 years and it’s a big deal. It’s in Aquarius too – which sets our path on a lighter, airier trajectory. We will turn a corner for the better at the end of December, and wave goodbye to the trauma and heartbreak of this year. In 2021 we begin to rebuild ourselves up in a new way.

While Jupiter can indicate success, justice, and expansion, in essence Jupiter amplifies. Here Jupiter amplifies Saturn, which deals with limits, regulations, and control issues. What’s the best use of this conjunction? Get organized, because discipline and responsibility will be a strong influence. Let go of bad habits and cultivate good ones.

Monday, December 7th: Moon in Virgo wants us to start a new diet and exercise routine; perhaps rearrange the house so it’s more efficient. But with Mercury currently in Sagittarius, we might want to read all day instead.

Tuesday, December 8th: Moon into Libra at 4pm Pacific brings a taste of romance to our day. If you need to talk to your boss, or hammer out agreements, today and tomorrow are PERFECT for it.

Wednesday, December 9th: Moon in Libra. Sociability, communication and fairness. If something in your life feels out of balance, you can correct it now.

Thursday, December 10th: Moon in Libra all day, then into Scorpio at 6pm Pacific. The mood of the day could be heavy, and people might be focused on their own trajectories, so you focus on your path.

Friday, December 11th: Moon in Scorpio (informed by Mars in Aries). Do Magick! Expect occult experiences and deep conversations with people. Sexy date night if you can meet in person.

Saturday, December 12th: Moon in Scorpio, then into Sagittarius at 6:39pm Pacific. Have outside adventures today! Put energy towards your goals.

Sunday, December 13th: We are in the orb of the New Moon solar eclipse in Sagittarius, tomorrow morning (Monday) at 8:17am. Prepare for a new beginning.

The Sun continues it’s travels through the sign of Sagittarius, the Archer. We are renovating our beliefs, and aligning ourselves with new meaning and purpose. Monday night, we had a Full Moon Eclipse at 8 Gemini at 1:30am Pacific. This week is an opportunity for a breakthrough – for something to be released that no longer fits our forward path. If you have any planets near 8 degrees Gemini, Sagittarius, Pisces or Virgo, you might experience some major changes in the next couple of months.

Neptune stationed Direct (forward) last Saturday, but is standing still – and is strong – until mid December. During the retrograde of the last few months, we have confronted an old, karmic delusion that’s been holding us back from being present with ourselves. Now we’re letting it go. We are turning forward to a new way of being in the world.

There’s two directions in a Neptune transit: you can reconnect with your soul through inspiration, spirituality, music or creativity, or you can escape through alcohol, drugs and fantasy. Either way will lead you further down the road to self knowledge. Neptune heals us, and takes us to the heights of imagination. We are highly sensitive and attuned to invisible currents right now, so being an open, receptive vehicle for revelations is a good use of this time. If you are on a spiritual path, new worlds could appear; if you’re an artist, tarot reader, or psychic, this is a powerful divinatory time. Neptune also rules martyrdom, service, charity, healing, and spiritual insight.

Monday, November 30th: Full Moon Eclipse at 8 Gemini. Something from June comes to fruition, and either overcomes a hurdle, or ends. With an eclipse, we can see things within ourselves that have been a blind spot, so it’s an illuminating Moon for purging and healing our shadow sides. Gemini is VERY chatty and social, but using remote communications might be the safest platform. With Neptune standing still, pursue and embrace facts. We are facing the shadow and the unknown.

Tuesday, December 1st: Moon void-of-course in Gemini all day! Mercury enters Sagittarius (it’s detriment) at 11:51am Pacific. Mercury is weakened and overwhelmed in it’s detriment for the next several weeks. Clarity and decisiveness become lost in Sagittarian philosophy and “big picture” mind frames. Getting outside and going on solitary adventures will clear your head.

Wednesday, December 2nd: Moon VOC in Gemini until 1:45pm Pacific. The Cancer Moon in the evening will bring emotions, sensitivity and dreaminess to the rest of the week. Not a good night for serious discussions, avoid social complications.

Thursday, December 3rd: Moon in Cancer is part of a big Water trine today. Moon in Cancer trines Venus at 14 Scorpio, then Neptune at 18 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, December 4th: Moon in Leo. Restlessness today and possible questioning of the future. Try and stay in the present and deal with things as they arise. Information about your future comes up in the evening. It’s a great day to find authenticity with people. Organize your time and practice those internal boundaries.

Saturday, December 5th: Moon in Leo, and goes void at 2:28pm. Get creative! Venus trines Neptune at 18 degrees Scorpio and Pisces respectively. This brings beauty and true inspiration to art and romance. Beautiful aspect that highlights romantic passion, inspiration, and harmonizing within groups. If you are creative, psychic, inclined to the mystical, spiritual religious and metaphysical this week and next, and especially next weekend could be a wonderful time. Be kind to the feminine in your life. Enjoy some beautiful art and appreciate the wonders of nature going on all around us. Fall in love again with the mystery of life.

Sunday, December 6th: Moon in Virgo. We’ve turned a spiritual corner over the last week. We end this week with Mars moving faster, and everything in our lives moving forward in a positive way.

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.

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.
