Sunday, November 23. Yesterday’s New Moon is still in operation. What are you dreaming up for this lunar cycle of expansion? How will you broaden your horizons? How will you develop a better sense of what liberating truth feels like? We may feel strongly that we need to take on a learning project. Do you need to go back to school, get that certification, or network with experts in your field? Let the mutable fire of Sagittarius burn off some of the heaviness of the Scorpio lunar cycle. As the week goes on, we will feel more of this expansion. Today, the mood is mixed. Chiron in Pisces stations direct, increasing the tendency to take things personally. Vulnerability can feel overwhelming. We are sensitized to the suffering of others. Yet in the midst of this empathy we feel the grand fire trine between the Moon, Uranus, and Jupiter energizing us to take action.
Monday, November 24. Is it yes or no? We feel the push and pull between Sagittarius and Capricorn today. Sagittarius says yes first and then thinks about it. Capricorn likes to immediately say no, and then reconsider. What lies between your yes and no? Mars in Capricorn is quincunx Jupiter (ruler of Sagittarius) in Leo. The quincunx aspect feels like we are yo-yoing back and forth between paradoxical stances. Paradox illuminates unexpected truths. Yes and no blend. Perspective expands when we accept limitations. Conflicts could occur around the tensions between external authority (Capricorn) and self-determination (Leo).
Thursday, November 27. U.S. Thanksgiving. With the Moon in Aquarius, political discussions are on tap for this Thanksgiving holiday. This can create a delicious sense of righteousness if everyone at the table agrees with us, or a fraught sense of judgment if they don’t. What a perfect opportunity to expand beyond our limited truths to see more nuance and variation. In the introduction to the week, I suggested this Sagittarian lunar cycle would be a good opportunity to cultivate the truth that frees us. We’ve been spinning through the same cycles of conflict for a long time. What is a new way to create a world of liberating truth? Mercury leaves Scorpio for Sagittarius tonight (CST) leaving Saturn all alone in Scorpio to mull over the darkness. Thoughts become a little less obsessive and we feel infinitely more curious and social.
Friday, November 28. In the early part of the day (CST) the Moon forms a t-square pattern with Jupiter in Leo and Saturn in Scorpio. I’ll be honest; I am not a big fan of Black Friday. I never shop on the day after Thanksgiving. With this t-square, the mood in the malls could be both volatile and leaden. It is probably better to ally with the oppressed workers and leave your own shopping for later. With the entrance of the Moon into Pisces, we want to shut off social input and relax. Release could take the form of seeing a movie, going to bed early, enjoying a long bath or escaping in a TV show or book.
