We’re on the cusp of a new lunar cycle–our current cycle is one for the record books with terrible storms, a difficult American Presidential campaign and election as well as lots of stories involving difficulties and loss in the news. We can chalk a lot of the losses up to the current transit of Saturn in Scorpio–so all of the fixed sign natives out there, (Scorpio, Aquarius, Taurus and Leo), stay on top of health, employment and business issues to keep your challenges to a minimum.
The November New Moon packs a wallop thanks to a Solar Eclipse–this energy is so powerful it will be with us until May of 2013. If you have planets near 22 degrees of Scorpio, Aquarius, Taurus or Leo–you can expect new beginnings in desires of the heart, money, friendships, groups associations and your creative projects or children.
This week we’ll have a much better time energetically–more high vibe days, but with Mercury retrograde you’ll want to continue to be vigilant and double check your facts and appointment times. And with that, let’s take a look at the week ahead!
Sunday 11 November 2012 (5 Stars): This is our first five star day in quite awhile! We begin with a heart opening, optimistic trine between the waning Libra Moon and Jupiter at 1:13 AM (Note: all times indicated in this blog are PST); storm clouds are moving off and our sense of joy returns along with a healthy dose of good luck! Love and money are in a great space as well as the Moon trines Venus at 6:13 AM–you might want to make it a day devoted to your beauty rituals or for carving out some high quality time with someone you care about. A late trip to the gym or some heavy lifting is in order when the Moon forms a sextile to Mars at 9:13 PM; just don’t work yourself up so much that you have trouble sleeping! The Moon becomes void of course after that last aspect and we’re also in a dark of the Moon phase now; best to lay low, take it easy and postpone new launches (if you choose to do so during a Mercury retrograde) until after the New Moon on Tuesday afternoon.
Monday 12 November 2012 (5 Stars): The Moon enters Scorpio at 3:10 AM before forming a trine to mystical, magical Neptune at 3:45 AM; keep your pen and paper near to hand to capture dream insights and prophecies; creative projects, meditation, dance, music, art and photographic work all benefit from this aspect as well. You may find you have a lot of work to do thanks to the monthly Moon-Saturn conjunction at 10:28 AM; some of this may have to do with settling an estate, dealing with business or tax issues or even taking care of the issue of your own end of life care (or someone near and dear to you)–all ruled by Moon in Scorpio, of course. You can get a boost in your behavior modification work via law of attraction, visualization or affirmative work when the Moon forms a sextile to Pluto at 3:34 PM; resolving mysteries also prospers under the energy of this Moon-Pluto aspect.
Moon in Scorpio colors: Black, dark brown, dark gray, dark red, maroon or orange. Crystals: Jet, obsidian, citrine, amethyst or charoite. Incense/Essential oils: Patchouli, myrrh, violet or vanilla.
Tuesday 13 November 2012 (1 Star): Energetically we get off to a late start beginning with the New Moon arriving at 2:08 PM (at 22 degrees of Scorpio); our focus for the next 30 days will be on issues of transformation, mysticism, secrets and intimate partners–to name just a few Scorpionic issues. Fuzzy, wuzzy thinking is the order of the day though, thanks to a square between Mercury and Neptune at 4:02 PM. Put off agreements of any kind until you can think clearly–which won’t be anytime soon. Mercury returns to Scorpio via retrograde motion at 11:43 PM.
Wednesday 14 November 2012 (2 Stars): The day may begin with a churning, over active mind as the Moon conjoins Mercury at 2:39 AM; since the Moon is in Scorpio this may also mean spiritual messages or intuitive insights and very deep thinking. The Moon enters a very short void of course period after that last aspect and then enters Sagittarius at 2:52 AM. More fuzzy thinking and some possibly deceptive information may be given to you regarding an important matter thanks to a square between the Moon and Neptune at 3:27 AM; you will want to continue to refrain from making any firm decisions until your thinking clears and or more reliable information makes its way to you. A clever, shocking and ingenious vibe arrives when the Moon forms a trine to Uranus at 10:42 AM; if you’re looking for a breakthrough or break out idea on a key project–this is an ideal time to brainstorm ideas.
Moon in Sagittarius colors: Purple, mauve, gold, green, red, black or indigo. Crystals: lapis lazuli, sugilite, amethyst, malachite, sodalite or turquoise. Incense/Essential oils: Sage, dragon’s blood, frankincense or copal.
Thursday 15 November 2012 (1 Star): Over optimism may lead you to promise too much, or even spend too much–especially with the Moon transiting through Sagittarius; reign in your expectations and actions when the Moon opposes Jupiter at 12:25 AM. You’ll have pretty good feed back on the love and money fronts later in the day when the Moon forms a sextile to Venus at 2:29 PM.
Friday 16 November 2012 (4 Stars): The Moon conjoins Mars at 1:44 AM making it a rough night for insomniacs; those who are up and about may want to indulge in some yoga or other light physical activity to benefit from Mars’ action oriented nature. Note the Moon is void of course after that last aspect, but enters Capricorn at 2:35 AM. You may get a bit of help in the sleep department when the Moon forms a sextile with Neptune at 3:11 AM; bring along some melatonin and sleep CD’s before you come to bed and win all arguments in the sleep department. Be prepared to deal with wild and crazy behavior, shocking news or unwanted surprises when the Moon squares Uranus at 10:32 AM; you might not be able to resist squelching rude behavior though since that last aspect is quickly followed by a Moon-Saturn sextile at 10:42 AM; rude or weird behavior is unlikely to be tolerated for long. Take a few moments to visualize an important goal, say some affirmations or do a bit of law of attraction work when the Moon conjoins Pluto at 3:18 PM. Action oriented Mars will have his wings clipped a bit when he enters Capricorn at 6:36 PM; expect to be busier than usual with career/success related tasks now till 25 December 2012.
Saturday 17 November 2012 (4 Stars): An early morning dance class or some other creative physical activity best suits the early morning Mars-Neptune sextile that occurs at 6:23 AM (though you may find yourself experiencing something more like nightmares if you’re asleep at this hour). Your creative/communications projects get a big boost from the conjunction between the Sun and Mercury at 7:47 AM. You’ll have additional opportunities to work on important communications when the Moon and Mercury sextile one another at 7:46 PM. Pay attention to some developing challenges in the love and money department as the Moon squares Venus at 8:03 PM; do what you can to eliminate them–fortunately intuitive ideas that may prove helpful arrive when the Moon forms a sextile to the Sun at 9:54 PM. Plan to boot up these new plans to unsnarl love/money issues as soon as possible.
