Follow the Moon: Forecast for November 23, 2015 — November 29

The heavens are ripe with the opportunity to look at our stories. And that is very exciting. Stories create our realities. They are important, the small stories and the large. However, the square between Saturn and Neptune (exact this week for the first of three times during the next year), with significant assist from Jupiter, presents us with the opportunity to reframe the stories that seem intractable, absolute, immoveable. Those stories about the way things are and the way they have to be—those are the stories we can look at and change right now.

We find ourselves in an incredibly complex world trying to discern the best way to go forward, create solutions, live with compassion, practice self-care, be in good relationship… It’s hard, right? Yep, and perhaps we are now undergoing an initiation into letting go of that story of hardship and worry. Perhaps, complexity and discernment do not have to be hard. Perhaps we are meant to incorporate greater and greater complexity into awareness and to simplify discernment to the point that it is obvious how we should treat ourselves and others (and by others, I mean everything, the world and all beings.) Perhaps, stranded in our DNA is a memory of when we knew how to do this already.

My code words for this moment in history are complexity and discernment, which are qualities emphasized by those planets in mutable signs that are squaring off to provoke a change in our stories. Because I invoke these words so often, I thought I would look up their roots. I found a fascinating story.

Complexity. The word, complex comes from Latin complexus meaning surrounding, encompassing. Also, complecti to encircle, embrace; from com – “with” + plectere “to weave, braid, twine.” Complexity is about weaving.
Discernment. The word, discern comes from Old French - discerner “to distinguish, separate” (by sifting). Discernment is about sifting.

Weaving and sifting are basic crafts of the housewife and the hedge witch. People began weaving and sifting early in human culture. We know this. Interestingly enough, both skills fit perfectly with Mercury-ruled signs Gemini and Virgo. (I am indebted to Lewis Hyde for his analysis of the trickster connection to crafts of all types. ) Both of these signs play a significant role in this month’s story. The Full Moon on November 25 is in Gemini, and Jupiter has been in Virgo since August. The small cycle of this lunation, which began on November 11* and the large cycle of Jupiter in Virgo (till September 2016) contribute to the possibility of remembering how to discern our way through complex times.

A series of transits this week provides an opportunity to look at our stories and assumptions. The prime directive is to not let the complexity derail us. Complexity is good. We want to weave more and more into our stories. We want Syrian refugees to live in our neighborhoods. We want racial justice and an end to privilege. We want reverent relationship with the Earth. (Or at least, I do. How about you?) Mercury in Sagittarius (mutable fire) conjoins Saturn and squares Neptune in Pisces (mutable water) on Tuesday and Wednesday. The Full Moon in Gemini on Wednesday gives this Mercury a boost. We want illumination. The square between Saturn in Sagittarius and Neptune perfects on Thursday, presenting us with the challenge of dispelling illusions in favor of productive stories. The Sun in Sagittarius will join Saturn and square Neptune on Sunday, adding even more illumination to this important task. We may feel as if we are caught up in communal dreams. Using the language of dreamtime may help us communicate better during this heavily mutable week. This lunar cycle began in Scorpio. We’ve been diving deep into soulful waters. Do not hurry to shake off that experience. We need the wisdom received during the Scorpio season to begin new stories.

Forecast for November 23, 2015 — November 29

Moon enters Taurus 10:26 am CST
Monday, November 23.
The Moon in Taurus (fixed earth) sets the tone for what we want from the rest of the day’s transits—stability. The most disruptive element of the day, Venus in Libra (cardinal air) opposing Uranus in Aries (cardinal fire) represents the ways that our relationships and alliances are being stretched. It is hard to maintain false harmony when so much injustice pervades. The Taurean Moon may contribute to a stubborn stance. The way around this is to acknowledge how scary change can be. Venus also makes a quincunx aspect to Chiron in Pisces (mutable water). This aspect may elevate our insecurities due to feeling vulnerable or exposed emotionally. Late in the day, Mars in Libra makes a favorable aspect to Saturn in Sagittarius (mutable fire). A new framework, a new course of action helps us to achieve the stability we yearn for.

Moon in Taurus
Tuesday, November 24.
Notice the messages coming from those who want to influence you. In a week when the stories we tell and the stories we believe are so influential, take the opportunity to investigate the motivations of the storytellers. Mars in Libra (cardinal air) forms a quincunx aspect with Neptune in Pisces (mutable water). Some may want to lead us towards peace while others want to move us closer to war. How do the stories surrounding these desires influence us? Mercury in Sagittarius (mutable fire) conjoins Saturn and squares Neptune in Pisces (mutable water) in the middle of the night. Notice how important the messages seem. The struggle to communicate both concretely and poetically is worthwhile. Seek the unifying story that dispels illusion and grounds you in possibility.

Moon enters Gemini 11:15 am CST
November 25—Full Moon: Illuminating. This lunar cycle began in Scorpio and has transitioned into Sagittarius influence with the Sun’s ingress into that sign. Seasonally, Scorpio is the time we move through the dying season. We become sensitive to the world beyond the veils. We seek and receive wisdom from that world. Sagittarian time is the season of celebration, telling stories around the fire, turning philosophical from our inner journeys. If we fail to invite complexity to our stories, we tell fundamentalist stories that don’t reflect reality. The opportunity at this Full Moon is to remember the wisdom from the unseen world and open to weaving into our realities greater and greater complexity.

Mutable signs are highly emphasized in the chart for the Full Moon. All the mutable signs are represented. These signs govern how we collect, interpret, and disseminate information. All the mutable signs seek greater understanding. They also are the shapeshifters and adapters. Form is tricky. Reality is fluid. Although this energy can be liberating, it can also agitate those who have a hard time finding their own ground. Take extra care to find quiet spaces if you tend to get over-stimulated.

The Moon in Gemini (mutable air) seeks the wisdom of pure thought. The Moon opposes Saturn and the Sun in Sagittarius (mutable fire) who are seeking the wisdom of pure energy. We get a chance to see how seriously we take ourselves sometimes, and step into the innocence of curiosity and open-mindedness.

Tomorrow, Saturn will square Neptune in Pisces (mutable water). Pisces seeks the wisdom of the heart. Saturn is about structure; Neptune about transcendence of structure. Both must co-exist. In the tension, illusion and fundamentalism need to be transformed. This square is very influential for the next year. In today’s chart, Mars in Libra (cardinal air) aspects both Saturn and Neptune. Mars often acts as a trigger if we don’t have anger under control. There may be spikes of anger and reaction when we feel frustrated about deeply held beliefs that feel threatened.

Although not in aspect with the other mutable planets of the chart, Jupiter in Virgo (mutable earth) seeks the wisdom of pure pragmatism. In a complex world, Virgo makes sense of the details by sifting through them to discern what is necessary and what isn’t. Remember this ally when complexity seems overwhelming.

Moon in Gemini
Thursday, November 26. U.S. Thanksgiving.
Family gatherings can be tricky. Many in the U.S. are gathering to celebrate Thanksgiving today. Yesterday’s forecast applies to today too. Over-stimulation can lead to feeling unfocused, confused, or angry. Perhaps we need to simplify our expectations so we can enjoy the inquisitive and social energy of this day instead. The first of three squares between Saturn in Sagittarius (mutable fire) and Neptune in Pisces (mutable water) occurs today. The others will be in June and September of next year. We yearn is to understand why things are the way they are. There are stories that create illusion and keep us stuck and there are stories that encourage us to see the world as it is. As you tell your stories and listen to the stories of others around your thanksgiving table, be curious about the stories that create vitality and beauty.

Moon enters Cancer 1:27 pm CST
Friday, November 27.
Awash in feelings after what could be a stressful week, the Moon moving into Cancer (cardinal water) alongside the direct station of Chiron in Pisces (mutable water) today means we need to take care of ourselves. Don’t feel guilty about pampering yourself. You may notice the urge to tend to others too. Pull your loved ones in close.

Moon in Cancer
Saturday, November 28.
It isn’t exact but close enough. A grand cardinal cross aspect pattern provokes and stresses the status quo today. The Moon in Cancer (cardinal water) will square Mars in Libra (cardinal air), oppose Pluto in Capricorn (cardinal earth), and square Uranus in Aries (cardinal fire) today. This could be a tinderbox kind of day where the littlest thing sets off a chain reaction. When in doubt, follow the Moon, is what I always say. This means pay attention to emotions, yours and others. Most likely we just want comfort and security. Defensiveness means we don’t think others are honoring our needs. Let’s try to be extra compassionate.

Moon enters Leo 6:47 pm CST
November 29—Disseminating Moon: Sharing. Earlier this week, we experienced the first of three squares between Saturn and Neptune. Today the Sun conjoins Saturn in Sagittarius (mutable fire) and squares Neptune in Pisces (mutable water) bringing a sense of illumination to this influential transit. My favorite astrological game is to notice which random events of the day could be symbolized by current transits. Possibilities range from minutia to significant world events. Saturn possibilities are: structures, bones, foundations, aspirations, lessons, limitations, old people. Neptune possibilities are: oceans, feelings, spirituality, addictions, popular trends in fashion, charismatic people. Somewhere today, the Sun will point out how we are experiencing these two planets in conflict. I’ve been thinking that the square between Saturn and Neptune provides us with a perfect opportunity to dispel stories that are untrue, limiting, or destructive. We need to be fluid enough to change and structured enough to stand for something. It is a challenge, but also a fantastic opportunity for insight and transformation.

In this phase of the Moon, we are ready to share the gifts and experiences of the lunar cycle. What have you learned? How can you pass it along? The Moon in Leo (fixed fire) emphasizes the solar aspects of this day. Each of us has a light to give to others. Pass it along.

Follow the Moon: Forecast for November 16, 2015 — November 22

Another tragedy has occurred to remind us that the world is in a tenuous and painful place. The attacks in France captured the attention of western media, but this event is by no means the only or even the most significant tragedy of recent times. Lebanon, Syria, and Iraq have also suffered. Indigenous people of the Earth are struggling to save their lands. Black people are struggling to change systemic racism and violence directed at them. Transgender people are struggling to be heard and given the safety and recognition they deserve. Immigrants are called criminals. The wealthy 1 percent still control governments and markets. The world is heating up. The question for many is, what should we do? There are many, many ways to work towards change. There are many, many tools. I offer the lens of astrology as a way to align with symbol and nature. The outer planetary cycles offer crucial information in the ways we are being challenged and the ways we can respond to shift these challenges to a greater wholeness. The most important planetary cycles of the last few years are presenting the opportunity to awaken and break the spells of toxic belief enchanting us.

Waking up. Over the last three years, astrologers have been discoursing about the planetary cycle between Uranus and Pluto. This cycle represents profound change, and has been marked by a global awakening to the problems facing us. Check out this new film being produced based on Richard Tarnas’ brilliant analysis of historic changes that have occurred under this cycle. . Even though the exact transits of the square between Uranus and Pluto have completed, we are still very much under the influence of this transit. Tarnas considers this influence to last into 2020.

Breaking the spell. The Saturn/Neptune cycle is another important planetary dance coming into focus now. These two planets will make three waning squares over the next 11 months: November 26; June 17, 2016; and September 10, 2016. This transit activates the tension between reality and fantasy. The potential offered is the motivation to break the spell of infatuation, lethargy, or escapism. The spell of despair, greed, and fear may be broken by rejecting these influences in favor of beliefs that create right relationship to all beings of the Earth. With these two important planetary cycles co-occurring, the mission is clear: To wake up and demystify the forces controlling us in order to re-enchant the world with beauty, joy, and love.

Coming back to the Scorpio/Sagittarius lunar cycle. Right now, these major planetary influences are being felt within the Scorpio/Sagittarius seasons. The current lunar cycle* began in the depth-probing sign of Scorpio and moves up into the expansive season of Sagittarius next. Important work right now is to remember the soul messages of the last few weeks, especially those messages that come from beyond the veils separating this world and the unseen world. Like waking up from a dream, we need to take a moment to anchor and remember this wisdom so that we are supported in our expansions into the wide world around us. This week, the Sun moves into Sagittarius, where Saturn is. As Saturn is the planet of boundaries and limitations, we may encounter obstructions around belief. Though this can be frustrating, good lessons of tolerance and compromise are here too. During this last week of Scorpio influence we may remember that people share similar passions: the need to have agency, the need to be safe, the need to be with loved ones, and the need to be connected with those who have gone before. These Scorpio needs are universal, and we develop more tolerance when we see these same needs in others.

Forecast for November 16, 2015 — November 22 

Moon in Capricorn
Monday, November 16.
Yesterday and today, the Moon contacted Pluto in Capricorn (cardinal earth) and Uranus in Aries (cardinal fire) reminding us of the paradigm changes we are undergoing. Volatile days follow the attacks in France. Authorities will want to look like they are taking charge. Although favorable aspects between the Moon in Capricorn and Jupiter in Virgo (mutable earth) and Mercury in Scorpio (fixed water) should bring ease and flow, these transits may also expand the possibility of feeling too confident about our choices. Jupiter in Virgo is offering the lessons of discernment, but we will have to slow down to get them.

Moon enters Aquarius 1:24 am CST
Tuesday, November 17.
Today’s superior conjunction of Mercury and the Sun in Scorpio (fixed water) is perhaps the final Scorpio transit of this season. Mercury and the Sun come together to plant a seed influenced by Scorpio messages. What have you been hearing from beyond the veils that separate the seen and unseen worlds? What have you been hearing from your soul? We have the opportunity to remember and anchor that wisdom as the Messenger God contacts the illuminating Sun. The Moon in Aquarius (fixed air) prompts a desire to expound on ideas. The Internet will most likely be humming with opinions, although that is nothing new. Slow down a moment before posting that comment. We will want to consider the long-range impact on our goals and relationships since the Moon makes favorable contacts with Saturn and Venus.

Moon in Aquarius
Wednesday, November 18.
In this week’s introduction I wrote about the influential cycle occurring between Saturn in Sagittarius (mutable fire) and Neptune in Pisces (mutable water). This transit influences the relationship between reality and fantasy. An imbalance here leads to fundamentalism or projections of fantasy onto others. We could respond by deadening any hope for beauty and connection. The potential is to find a balance between reality and fantasy. Today, Neptune stations direct. When planets station, their influence is stronger. We have the opportunity to notice our tendencies to fantasize or fall under the glamour of a thought or feeling. We also have the opportunity to notice how Neptune’s influence can fill our hearts with compassion helping us to dissolve the boundaries that separate us. Discernment is necessary to navigate these waters. As Jupiter transits through Virgo (mutable earth) until September 2016, we have the opportunity to develop our discerning skills. Notice complexity. Pause before leaping.  

Moon enters Pisces 6:21 am CST
November 19—First Quarter Moon: Manifesting. If this lunar cycle is about maintaining good relationship to the unseen world, then we reach an adjustment point for that intention during this phase of the Moon. Since for most of the day, the Moon is in Pisces (mutable water) and forms a conjunction with stationary Neptune, the major adjustment could be to keep one toe grounded while flowing into all the nooks and crannies of unseen worlds. We could be feeling so fluid and suggestible, that we need to ground and focus on the here and now, too. The Moon squares Saturn right before it conjoins Neptune, thus reminding us of the influential Saturn/Neptune square that colors our growing edges the coming year. The potential of this Saturn/Neptune cycle is to break the spell of illusion and despair. We have real work to do in the world. The purpose of good relationship with the unseen world is to anchor that wisdom in the choices we will need to make. How will you flow and anchor today?

Moon in Pisces
Friday, November 20.
It’s been building all week. Perhaps we noticed it before today’s exact transit, but notice it we will. What it is, is the last straw. Venus in Libra (cardinal air) squares Pluto in Capricorn (cardinal earth) today. A part of us that usually strives to be harmonious, considerate, and diplomatic just reaches capacity and breaks that code of behavior. Expect women’s issues and the voices of women to be exclaimed in some way. What happens when a veneer gets stripped away? Pluto is asking us to drop the niceties and be real with how we feel. Core issues are justice and power. The Moon in Pisces (mutable water) reduces discernment. The opposition between the Moon and Jupiter in Virgo (mutable earth) forces us to find it. Intuition and empathy can be balanced with pragmatism and boundaries. Let’s give it a try. Mercury leaves Scorpio today for Sagittarius (mutable fire). Words become philosophical. We want to talk about meaning and truth. With the fluid and volatile aspects of the day, it is good to be aware that “truth” can cause destruction too.

Moon enters Aries 9:12 am CST
Saturday, November 21.
This is the last day of Sun in Scorpio. Are you ready to come out from underground yet? Chances are with the Moon in Aries (cardinal fire), we are. We may even come out fighting. The ingress of Mars into Libra did not offer the peaceful harmony that this signature often promises. Unfortunately, that was the day of the attack in France. However, with Mars moving away from the critical 0 degrees of Libra, we now can focus on finding more balance between aggression and peace. That reminder may come in handy today. Belief is such a strong motivator and manipulator of emotion. We continue to notice the extremes of belief and reach for a new way.

Moon in Aries
November 22—Gibbous Moon: Perfecting. The lunar cycle shifts from a Scorpio (fixed water) influence to a Sagittarius (mutable fire) one today with the Sun’s ingress into Sag. This is the moment we take the deep interior experiences of the last month into the wide world around us. It is good to remember that deep experiences, though they feel universal, may only hold personal truth. You will see me write a lot about discernment this year as we have a strong amount of mutable influence coming up. Mutable signs integrate experiences and synthesize meaning. Jupiter in Virgo (mutable earth) is blaring a message about how much we need to integrate our experiences using discernment about impact and relevance to others. The environment, our relationships, and wellbeing will give us immediate feedback if we go too far astray. Under this phase of the Moon, notice the desire to broadcast truth. It feels terribly important to get this right. The Moon in Aries (cardinal fire) makes a challenging t-square aspect pattern with Uranus in Aries, Pluto in Capricorn (cardinal earth) and Venus in Libra (cardinal air). People are fired up about injustice. Uranus and Pluto again remind us to wake up.

Follow the Moon: Forecast for November 9, 2015 — November 15

There is only so much deep soul diving that any one human can do, and then we just have to come up for air. Sometime during the next lunar cycle, you are going to notice that impulse to surface. This is the nature of the jump from Scorpio (fixed water) into the next sign, Sagittarius (mutable fire). The lunar cycles have been doing a mid-course shift to the next sign’s energy lately and will continue for a few more months. So we get to explore those cusps and shifts between the signs. Astrology is a symbol language for noticing energy and impulse. Through the practice of mindful awareness and intention following a lunar cycle, it is possible to hone our perceptions of energy. This is one of the eternal delights (for me) of astrology. Astrology’s symbols are based in nature. The elements and seasons provide the wisdom. See what you notice this month as you observe the shifting energy and the messages from the world around you.

The New Moon on November 11 anchors us in the soulful sign of Scorpio. There is more to experience within. The dying season calls for retreat and rest. When left with only our own thoughts, what do we discover? Emotions that feel taboo, like grief, depression, jealousy, and fear are stirred up. This is the time to see what is in there when we go past exterior niceties. Eleven days later, the Sun enters Sagittarius as New Moon intentions wax and grow along with the Moon. The Full Moon illumination on November 25 emphasizes the Sagittarius/Gemini polarity where the microcosm reflects upon the macrocosm. What have we been learning? What do we want to do next? Small and large acts matter. By the Full Moon, Scorpio’s interior focus is complete for the time being. The imperative now is to journey outward to find expansive, uniting truths that will guide us into deep winter.

This month an influential transit begins: Saturn in Sagittarius squares Neptune in Pisces. This transit represents an important turning point in the synodic cycle of Saturn in aspect to Neptune. A synodic cycle is the period of time it takes two planets to come back into the same aspect with each other. Every 35 – 36 years, Saturn and Neptune come back to this waning square aspect we are experiencing right now. In 1989, Saturn and Neptune began a new cycle when they conjoined in Capricorn. In 2006, these two planets opposed each other (Saturn in Leo, Neptune in Aquarius). The waning square, like the last quarter phase of the Moon, is about evaluating an experience. We discard what doesn’t work and hone what does. These two planets represent dreams and fantasies (Neptune) and limitations and commitments (Saturn). Saturn infuses a dose of realism into Neptunian hopes. With this waning square, it is time to get real and get off the fantasy train. The context, provided by the signs that Saturn and Neptune currently occupy, is the effect belief and philosophy have on our potential to wake up and start the work of manifesting our dreams. Beliefs can be both limiting and liberating. Belief can keep us separate from others or unite us. Belief can fuel wars or peace. Belief can distract or keep us focused and hopeful. Belief is a tool in Saturn’s hands. How will you use this tool? This month, we begin such explorations with the onset of these squares. The next two will be in June and September of 2016.

Forecast for November 9, 2015 — November 15

Moon enters Scorpio 10:02 pm CST
Monday, November 9.
The Moon is in Libra most of the day and void-of-course too until entering Scorpio in the late evening (CST). (Void-of-course is a period of time that can feel listless or lacking direction). Under the Libra influence, we may be weighing our choices. You might be feeling indecisive. The agitating factor that could force you to make a decision before you are ready is the quincunx aspect between the Sun in Scorpio (fixed water) and Uranus in Aries (cardinal fire). Anything simmering under the surface could suddenly erupt. Be careful as you negotiate a day where being non-committal could be the best course of action. As an anchor, tap into your heart wisdom, with the Sun’s trine to Chiron in Pisces (mutable water).

Moon in Scorpio
Tuesday, November 10.
Words are powerful at any time, but maybe even more so today. The favorable aspect between Mercury in Scorpio (fixed water) and Pluto in Capricorn (cardinal earth) gives power to our words. Make them count. We especially want to share our deeper, emotion-fueled truths. No time for vacuous communication. On top of that, we are feeling lucky too with a favorable aspect between the Sun in Scorpio and Jupiter in Virgo (mutable earth). This is a great transit under which to initiate transformation and healing. Since this is the last day of this lunar cycle, allow a moment to release and empty. Be good to yourself and begin to think about a new lunar cycle beginning tomorrow. What is stirring in your soul?

Moon in Scorpio
November 11—New Moon: Dreaming. The unseen world feeds the world we see around us. We are in constant exchange. The season of Samhain is marked by this awareness that we are in relationship to the unseen and that we owe this world a debt. The land of the dead, the roots beneath us, the mysterious flow of energy, all these realms come into focus when the veil between the worlds thins. Today’s New Moon in Scorpio is another moment to notice the relationships we have with all the worlds. An excellent intention to follow this lunar cycle would be to tend the relationship we have with the “other side.” Perhaps this means looking at your fears around death or your resistance to emotional experience. It could mean devoting yourself to serving some aspect of that world. How do you bring honor and respect to your ancestors?

Intuition plays a big role in the energies of this New Moon. Neptune is beginning to come to a standstill in apparent motion and will begin to move direct next week. This planet is connected to unseen desires and dreams and is powerful at this time.

Mars spends its last day in Virgo (mutable earth) and moves into Libra (cardinal air) tomorrow. In this sign, Mars is a pussycat. The potential represented by this energy is for a healing of the martial aspects of our culture. The warrior in this sign is interested in how others feel. This is a good start. The trick is to find balance between what we need and what others want from us.

The Sun and Moon are sextile Jupiter in Virgo giving a sense of optimism to our lunar intentions. Honoring the unseen world, which feeds our own, promises wholeness and health to all the realms. May it be so.

Moon enters Sagittarius 9:14 am CST
Thursday, November 12.
Yesterday’s New Moon may have felt dreamy and otherworldly, but that changes today. With the Moon’s ingress into Sagittarius (mutable fire) our attention turns to the worlds of philosophy, adventure, and possibility. Mercury in Scorpio (fixed water) is busy today too, first making a trine to Chiron in Pisces (mutable water) and then a quincunx to Uranus in Aries (cardinal fire). Expect to uncover new insights. There could be breakthroughs, especially if you are willing to think outside the box. Chiron reminds us to stay connected to our hearts. There is a lot to learn by empathizing with others. Mars moves into Libra (cardinal air) today. Since Libra is opposite one of the signs that Mars rules (Aries), this planet will have to make adjustments to truly feel comfortable in this sign. We will feel that awkwardness in our relationships. But the opportunity is to blend an awareness of how others are feeling with what we want for ourselves. The opportunity is to learn to be more gentle for the next two months.

Moon in Sagittarius
Friday, November 13.
With its association with witches and warnings to beware misfortune, Friday the 13th is the perfect note to strike at the end of this Scorpio season. Witches are comfortable with the things others might find fearful. But perhaps this is just a willingness to see things as they are. Try on your own witchy senses today. I recommend Terry Pratchett’s Tiffany Aching books to get a sense of how a real witch behaves. There really isn’t much to fear today. In fact, things move along swimmingly. A favorable aspect between Venus in Libra (cardinal air) and Saturn in Sagittarius (mutable fire) feeds security in our relationships. The favorable aspect between Mercury in Scorpio (fixed water) and Jupiter in Virgo (mutable earth) creates connection with others. Find your mode of expression and go for it.

Moon enters Capricorn 6:21 pm CST
Saturday, November 14. 

Choice can be hard when you see so many sides to the issue. We might struggle with decision-making today because we see so many sides. The quincunx between Venus in Libra (cardinal air) and Neptune in Pisces (mutable water) expands what we are able to perceive. The problem is that this doesn’t necessarily bring more clarity. The obvious solution may be only an illusion. When the Moon moves into Capricorn tonight (CST) it is time to shake off the fog.

Moon in Capricorn
November 15—Crescent Moon: Beginning. The first three days of a lunar cycle are devoted to wondering and dreaming about our intentions for the cycle. At the crescent phase we begin the journey of working towards those dreams. Inspired by Scorpio, your intention may involve a closer relationship with the unseen worlds. Doing this work creates wholeness in all the realms. What are you doing to serve the world that feeds ours? The Moon in Capricorn (cardinal earth) means business. We take responsibility seriously under this influence. Friction in relationship is a possibility today with the Moon’s square to Venus in Libra (cardinal air). Power could be the issue since later tonight (CST) the Moon conjoins Pluto.
