Can you believe it’s time for Thanksgiving already?! You know what that means, Christmas is right around the corner with the New Year close behind. So, let’s not waste time, you’re going to be busy with a First Quarter Moon, decorating and Black Friday shopping; here’s everything you’re going to need to know for Thanksgiving week!
Sunday 18 November 2012 (1 Star): The waxing Moon enters Aquarius at 4:10 AM PST (all times indicated in this blog are PST), so technology, interesting downloads, friends and group associations are up to bat as we begin the week. The Aquarian vibe is enhanced by a Moon-Uranus sextile at 12:29 PM; if you’re looking for inventive or clever ideas this aspect should work well for you. You may feel a bit under siege due to business/estate demands or the concerns of intimate partners when the Moon squares Saturn at 1:10 PM–this energy could cast a pall over the day, so get in a bit of exercise to raise your vibes and your energy and combat any depression this aspect might bring on.
Moon in Aquarius colors: Electric blue, silver, turquoise, hot pink, white; all neon/fluorescent shades. Crystals: Labradorite, amethyst, aquamarine, opal or clear quartz. Incense/Essential Oils: Patchouli, lavender, mint or sandalwood.
Monday 19 November 2012 (1 Star): Good fortune arrives along with a healthy dose of optimism when the Moon trines Jupiter at 2:47 AM; that’s a good thing because you may have blocked/difficult communications when the Moon forms a square to Mercury at 7:22 PM. Remember that we’re all making our way through another Mercury retrograde so if there is an error in communications or difficulty in communicating with others, now is not a particularly easy time to have our needs met or our communications heard with clarity. Patience and meditation make this first work day of the week go a bit more smoothly.
Tuesday 20 November 2012 (4 Stars): Things get a lot better today, though we do have a First Quarter Moon to deal with as we begin our day. We start with a Moon-Venus trine at 5:35 AM and humanity is feeling the love–for a hot minute. Things bog down when the Moon squares the Sun at 6:31 AM (First Quarter Moon-28 degrees of Aquarius); check your plans for this cycle as they may require tweaking at this time. The Moon is also void of course after that last aspect until 8:55 AM when it enters Pisces.
You’ll have plenty of inspiration for both spiritual and creative projects when the Moon conjoins Neptune at 9:38 AM and you might want to schedule time in the afternoon for a run or a trip to the gym when the Moon forms a sextile to Mars at 2:11 PM. Organizational planning, clean up and long term projects get a boost when the Moon trines Saturn at 7:01 PM. Later you may want to make time for a get together with a special someone when the Moon forms a sextile to Pluto at 11:31 PM.
Moon in Pisces colors: Shades of blue, green, purple, white or light yellow. Crystals: Amethyst, moonstone, aquamarine or bloodstone. Incense/Essential oils: lavender, honeysuckle or sage.
Wednesday 21 November 2012 (1 Star): Don’t let over optimism con you into overspending when the Moon squares Jupiter at 8:34 AM. You will be wanting to think/act in big ways now that the Sun is in Sagittarius (1:50 PM)–Happy Birthday to all the Sag folks out there; legal concerns, religious/spiritual matters and dealings with people at a distance will be in the spotlight for the next 30 days. Venus enters Scorpio at 5:20 PM, so don’t be surprised if old lovers come to call–especially since Mercury is retrograde in Scorpio at this time; steamy windows indeed!
Our opportunities to sort out communication projects improve when the Moon forms a trine to Mercury at 10:32 PM; planning and writing projects benefit from this aspect if you finish them by 10:32 PM. Why the worry? Well, first, the Moon is void of course after that last aspect and second, our thinking gets a bit ungrounded thanks to a Sun-Neptune square at 11:13 PM; someone may be trying to pull the wool over your eyes with regard to love or creative projects, so avoid making decisions or agreements at this time. The Moon will not enter Aries until 5:12 PM Thursday. That’s right, most of Thanksgiving Day will be spent in void of course la-la land, so check and recheck your plans, ingredients, etc., as foggy thinking could set your plans at naught.
Thursday 22 November 2012 (5 Stars): Love and inspiration combine for a fabulous early morning get together when Venus forms a trine to Neptune at 1:00 AM. Reminder: the Moon enters Aries at 5:12 PM and our focus shifts to personal goals and concerns at this time. Make plans to put intuitive insights into action when the Moon forms a trine to the Sun at 7:37 PM; those celebrating Thanksgiving should enjoy a very good time with friends and family!
Friday 23 November 2012 (2 Stars): Mars square Uranus at 2:06 AM suggests some boisterous partying into the night–and insomnia challenges as a result (melatonin anyone?). The frivolity continues when the Moon conjoins Uranus at 2:27 AM; amazing insights, creativity downloads and just plain wild fun are likely into the wee hours thanks to this aspect, although the Moon-Mars square at 2:29 AM may indicate early morning riotous behavior is going to be met with a bit of a challenge or force–it could even backfire causing unwanted interactions with law enforcement. You might want to call it an early night and avoid unnecessary challenges.
An early morning square between the Moon and Pluto at 8:47 AM advises caution in your dealings with others; you never know if you’re dealing with someone with anger management issues, so keep a low profile, no flipping anyone the bird during taxing Black Friday shopping challenges and be prepared for displays of temper or willfullness from VIP’s, bosses or other cantankerous types. You can score a great deal if you do decide to take a chance on a bit of holiday shopping when the Moon forms a sextile to Jupiter at 5:34 PM–but keep your spending to a prudent level since the Moon is void of course after that last aspect. The Moon enters Taurus at 4:18 AM Sunday morning (25 November 2012). Yes, Saturday will be spent in void of course la, la land as well this week.
Colors for Moon in Aries: Red, scarlet, yellow, pink or white. Crystals: Amethyst, bloodstone, coral, garnet or red jasper. Incense/Essential Oils: cinnamon, Dragon’s Blood, frankincense, jasmine, myrrh or sandalwood.
Saturday 24 November 2012 (1 Stars): We’ve only one aspect all day, a sextile between Mars and Saturn at 2:53 PM–which is a bit like driving with one foot on the gas and the other on the brake. An apt description since we have a void of course Moon all day as well. Best to spend this day resting, cleaning up or in quiet meditation; wait to launch new endeavors until Sunday morning after the Moon has switched signs.
