retrograde uranus in taurus trines ceres in capricorn at 2:44am, aligning the Rebel and Revolutionary with the Great Mother asteroid Goddess. last week wednesday chiron squared chiron and today uranus trines her- activating the uranus/chiron semisextile. this is a long term transit (2009-2021) and links the planet of awakening and revelation with the planetoid of wounding and healing. with both linking with ceres the Great Mother the spotlight is on mothering, family, children, Mother Earth, the environment and more. uranus with ceres is bringing innovation and positive change to these areas of life- but last week chiron was magnifying what is wounded and not working. venus will link with ceres this week as well- so pay attention to the themes up right now around home/family, children, motherhood, safety, security, nourishment and the environment.
mercury in scorpio semisquares jupiter in sagittarius at 4:12am, creating tension between the mind and intellect and the planet of expansion and excess! mercury is making a lot of aspects right now- so the chaotic and destabilizing revelations incoming through communication, thinking, the media and more can be profound but also unnerving. our own willingness to expose the shadows within and without is key right now. if we are more committed to sweeping things under the carpet this can be quite the intense time! jupiter wants to the whole Truth and mercury in scorpio is willing to dig to get to it! just watch out for being excessive, self righteous and hubristic. also watch out for talking too much and for having loose lips ;)
venus moves out of sagittarius and into capricorn at 4:28pm, shifting the Goddess of Love and Beauty from fire to earth, yang to yin, freedom loving to responsibility focused. venus in capricorn values tradition, commitment, loyalty and respect. she is deeply committed to what and who she loves and will stay even when things get tough in order to do the work to move through. the one thing to be aware of is that venus in capricorn can stay way beyond the expiration date. if we are holding onto relationships out of fear of safety and security or for money reasons- venus can shine her Light on that in the comings weeks of her transit through capricorn. keep in mind she will be triggering the capricorn confluence- linking with the south node, saturn and pluto in the coming weeks (and also triggering pluto/eris!). where capricorn is in our natal charts is where our biggest work has been in the last few years- and the lessons will keep coming until we REALLY GET THEM!
the sun in sagittarius quincunxes retrograde uranus in taurus at 5:59pm, creating tension between the conscious self and ego and the Rebel and Revolutionary. both sagittarius and uranus want freedom at any cost. in extreme ways this combination can create excess, impulsivity, reactivity and restlessness. if our desire for the new is simply a covert means to escape being responsible for the past- this can catch up with us eventually. finding balance between stability and change, responsibility and freedom- is important right now.
tuesday november 26th-
the new moon at 4’03 sagittarius is exact at 7:06am PST, commencing a new lunar cycle focused on expansion, truth, travel, exploration and freedom! this new moon quincunxes uranus, trines chiron, and smeisquares the fast approaching saturn/pluto conjunction. it’s important to navigate any idealism or vision of Truth (spiritual, philosophical, cultural and more) with awareness that there are many facets to any crystals and many truths that have common underlying values. learning to see other’s perspectives is key to having AND honoring the freedom of others. the ruler jupiter is in sagittarius heading to capricorn as of 12/2! a whole new cycle of jupiter is incoming but first any last lessons and opportunities for growth are incoming and KEEPING AN OPEN MIND is key. remember- a mind is like a parachute. it works best when it is open ;) (LUNAR INSIGHT and LUNAR GATE CALL will be up by sunday night/monday the latest- LUNAR HOROSCOPES will be up by tuesday)
venus in capricorn squares retrograde chiron in aries at 10:28pm, creating tension between the Goddess of Love and Beauty and the Wounded Healer planetoid. old wounds and pain can arise right now in relationship, around self-worth and self-Love or around money and abundance consciousness. venus in capricorn is very traditional, grounded and committed- but if she is defaulting to the old and the past out of fear around safety and security that can get exposed right now. if there is fear of change, fear of taking a stand or walking away, or fear of going it on one’s own- facing those fears are on offer right now! the cave you fear to tread holds the treasure that you seek (joseph campbell). be wiling to question what you have always done or always defaulted to. the new can only come in when you are willing to question the old!
wednesday november 27th-
at 2:49am stationary set to go direct neptune sextiles retrograde vesta in taurus, linking the planet of mysticism and compassion with the Priestess asteroid Goddess of devotion and focus. this can be amazing for intuition, imagination, creativity and magic! as this aspect as well as neptune’s station occurs in the early morning hours- pay attention to your dreams!!! neptune stations in aspect to both vesta and mercury which means profound, intuitive, mystical and magical insights and messages (from the dreamtime and more) can be incoming. stay open!
at 4:32am neptune stations direct at 15’55 pisces, making the planet of mysticism and illusion the most powerful planet in the sky. neptune is great for mysticism, spirituality, intuition, compassion, altruism and Unconditional Love. yet shadow neptune can also be present in the form of denial, delusion, avoidance of reality, spiritually by passing, playing the victim or the martyr, refusing to see the self and others clearly, mass or interpersonal deception, and turning to addictions (to drugs/alcohol but also to internet/work/food/sex/dating or anything else) as a means to avoid really confronting the emotions and karmic patterns we keep repeating in our lives. the veil between the worlds is thin when neptune stations and the best use of this energy is in meditation, reflection, introspection and inner journeys. it’s not a great time to make definitive decisions as it’s not quite clear which way is up and which way is down. if you can take a time out to go within and Source your answers from your Higher Self (and do your inner work to discern this voice from the spiritually by passing ego voice that often can sound quite similar!) you will make the most of this transit! mercury just stationed direct and he trines a stationary neptune tomorrow- so keep your intuitive channels open and pay attention to your dreams tonight!
pallas in sagittarius sesquiquadrates retrograde eris in aries at 2:53pm, creating tension between the Wisdom and Warrior Goddess and the Goddess of Discord and Chaos. both pallas athena and eris are War Goddesses- and this aspect can amplify but also exacerbate that warrior-like fire. this is great for taking a stand for what you know to be True but it’s important to make sure you are not being self righteous, combative, argumentative or selfish. seeing both sides and finding common ground is key.
thursday november 28th-
at 1:51am mercury in scorpio trines a stationary direct neptune in pisces, aligning the conscious mind and intellect with the planet of mysticism, intuition and compassion. mercury/neptune is lovely for spirituality, mysticism, dreams and imagination. add in the fact that both planets are now direct- with neptune still stationary and mercury just starting to pick up speed- and we have an extra potent enhanced mystical/spiritual/intuitive transit! with both bodies in water signs letting the emotions flow and focusing on communicating from the Higher Heart is supported right now.
venus in capricorn trines retrograde uranus in taurus at 10:27am, aligning the Goddess of Love and Beauty with the Great Awakener! two days ago venus squared chiron and today she trines uranus- bringing opportunities to face wounds of the past and open to positive shift and change. uranus is in the sign of venus and when linking with her there is amazing support for growth and evolution in relationships, radical change in relationship patterns and paradigms, expansion and evolution of our values and opening up to deeper and more expansive self worth and self Love. uranus in taurus is radically revolutionizing our values and helping us to wake up and EMBODY MORE. this is about being here now in this body on this planet- rather than escaping, denying, staying in the head and disconnecting from the earth. this is a lovely earth trine for work and career with opportunities for new things incoming that can be amazing for financial abundance!
the sun in sagittarius semisextiles mars in scorpio at 11:21am, linking the conscious self and ego with the conscious will and drive. the two masculine planets in harmonious aspect is great for taking action and balancing our fire and desire for adventure (sagittarius) with our depth and intensity (mars in scorpio).
the sun in sagittarius semsiquares pluto in capricorn at 2:44pm, creating tension between the conscious self and ego and the Lord of the Underworld. with the sun aspecting both the lower will (mars) and Higher Will (pluto) we have some very strong will and energy to focus. a tense aspect to pluto can exacerbate power/control dynamics. making sure we are not coming from my way or the highway positions is key- while at the same time we are asked to stand in our power and come from a place of empowerment (versus power over/power under).
at 3:51pm mercury in scorpio sesquiquadrates retrograde chiron in aries, creating tension between the mind and intellect and the Wounded Healer. communications and thinking can get deep but also intense with old wounds and pain arising. mercury in scorpio wants to plumb the depths and get to the Truth but can we really handle the Truth- about ourselves or about others? with both bodies ruled by mars- we want to be aware of our anger and will and make sure it’s channeled in healthy ways. not giving away our power but also not lording it over others. getting to the bottom of things can set us free if we are willing to go deep.
mean black moon lilith in pisces semisextiles retrograde eris in aries at 9:59pm, harmoniously linking the Dark Lunar Goddess with the Dark Solar Feminine. both of these Goddesses are POWERFUL and with lilith in the last sign (omega) and eris in the first sign (alpha) we have a linking of fire and water, spirit and soul, inspiration and intuition. lilith is incredibly intuitive and instinctual in pisces and she can see what is not on the surface. eris in aries is willing to take a stand for what she believes to be true and even fight for it if need be. channel this powerful Goddess energy wisely!
friday november 29th-
at 10:12pm mercury in scorpio sextiles saturn in capricorn, aligning the conscious mind and intellect with the Lord of Karma and Father of Time. mercury/saturn is a lovely aspect for getting focused, serious, real and grounded. having important communications and speaking/hearing Truth is supported right now. this is the last of 3 mercury/saturn aspects that began in october due to mercury retrograde. pay attention to what you are hearing/thinking/dealing with right now. wrap things up so you can move on!
saturday november 30th-
venus cojoins ceres 5’25 capricorn at 1:37am, aligning the Goddess of Love and Beauty with the Great Mother asteroid Goddess. linking our desire for pleasure and connection with our desire to nurture and be nurtured- in the sign of grounding, stability and security. earlier in the week they both trined uranus- bringing new energy into relationships and family situations. this is lovely energy for stabilizing in relationships and being thankful for that which is enduring and continues to show up for you (both others, but also how you show up for others and how you show up for yourself!).
the sun in sagittarius sesquiquadrates retrograde eris in aries at 1:29pm, creating tension between the conscious self and ego and the Goddess of Discord and Chaos. since thursday the sun has been tensely aspecting the fast approaching pluto/eris square- some of the biggest astrology in 2020! sun/eris reveals what is going on behind the scenes. if we are being too fiery and going up and out- eris reminds us that there is shadow not acknowledged that we need to go down and in to see. some sudden and unexpected energy is present today- pay attention to what is up right now and tend to it rather than spiritually bypass it ;)
sunday december 1st-
pallas in sagittarius quincunxes the north node in cancer at 12:52am, creating tension between the Wisdom and Warrior Goddess and the node of destiny and growth. pallas in sadge likes to come from her head- thinking, analyzing, strategizing. but the north node in cancer requires that we FEEL our feelings- not just think about them and analyze them. this is also about honoring of the feminine- tapping into our inner Mother, allowing ourselves to need and be vulnerable, and develop deeper intimacy with all that we are (feelings and everything else). tune into where you may avoid this and turn towards it instead ;)
the sun in sagittarius quincunxes the north node in cancer at 11:33pm, mirroring the energy earlier today with pallas/north node. seeing where we are coming from our heads, avoiding our feelings, defaulting to going up and out when what we need to do is go down and in, feel our feelings, honor our needs and tend our inner feminine selves (both Inner Mother and Inner Child) is key!
jupiter at 29’54 sadge sesquiquadrates retrograde vesta in taurus at 11:44pm, activating the planet of expansion and abundance in his last full day in the sign he rules! tomorrow jupiter moves into capricorn- shifting us into a whole new yearly cycle. with jupiter at the karmic completion degree (29th degree) we have big time jupiter energy up! jupiter wants to travel, explore, expand and grow! he does not like being reigned in, hemmed in or put in a corral (he is the wild horse the runs free after all). jupiter with vesta in earthy, sensual and slow moving taurus can be an interesting energy. vesta wants to be slow and steady but jupiter wants to be fast and on the move NOW!!! jupiter in sadge can also be self righteous and full of hubris. fantatical ideas about truth and imposing those truths on others needs to be tempered right now. finding common ground and accessing a Bigger Picture of vision of what is really going on is key!
have a blessed week…
