Another interesting week as we wind down 2020. This week, “The Shit Hits the Fan,” the transits ask us to get weird and original, and the weekend presents some challenging energy and passions…
MONDAY, NOV. 16 & TUESDAY, NOV. 17 – The energy of the Sunday New Moon lingers as the Moon lingers in the Scorpio constellation. This New Moon is about planting seeds for next Spring in our lives and manifesting long-term gains and goals. Mercury is nearby and as we awake and re-direct (from the planet of thought, communications, and messages backwards motion in Scorpio and Libra) we’re still examining our relationships, our Justice system, and uncovering secretive and deceptive actions. Venus is hovering above Mercury and visible on the eastern horizon right before sunrise, and it’s always beneficial to us when the planet of love, money, and creativity is visible to the human eye. However, Venus is in tension with both Pluto and the star Athena – this is an exploration of impermanence (death – mortality and immortality) so it’s not all that coincidental virus numbers are peaking at this time. What The Stars Say also pointed out recently (“The Shit Hits the Fan Today“) the Jupiter and Pluto conjunction would also bring the virus into the forefront again as well as power plays (thanks to Jupiter expanding Pluto’s Plutocratic energy).
WEDNESDAY, NOV. 18 THURSDAY, NOV. 19 – The Moon has moved into the Sagittarius constellation and floats above Jupiter and Saturn in the Capricorn constellation (with both planets visible for a few hours each night). With the North Lunar Node’s move into Sagittarius, perhaps this Moon is whispering to Jupiter and Capricorn about the future as both planets prepare to move into 0 degrees in the futuristic Aquarius constellation. Are you feeling an emotional pull towards your future today as well? Jupiter and Pluto’s merging in the sky continues and expands on issues of authority, top down control, and the pandemic issue overall. With the Sun’s sextile to Saturn you’ll likely feel more ambitious, focused, and able to complete difficult tasks – making this an excellent time to tackle any responsibilities and obligations you’ve been procrastinating on.
FRIDAY, NOV. 20 – Today is a day to think before you speak and be aware of your internal restless energies and impatience. The Moon squares both Mercury and Uranus so unexpected and disruptive communications are more likely. As the day progresses we’ll have more of a filter between our thoughts and speech, but in the morning we must be extra careful because we won’t have the same level of emotional detachment. This same Uranian energy can also bring forth creative problem solving, exciting and unexpected ideas and plans, and a general enthusiasm – as long as no one tells you what to do or think.
SATURDAY, NOV. 21 – Venus moves into Scorpio and awakens the Lover in us all. Yet, Scorpio is still examining the dark side since Mercury was in a retrograde motion in this area and the Sun in Sagittarius asks us to do some higher thinking and contemplate the impermanence of life (yet again – just like all the planets in Capricorn are asking us). What is the meaning of life? Is our life enough of an adventure? What’s the point and higher purpose of all of this? With the Moon in Pisces (a water sign) and Venus also in a water sign it’s likely to be an emotional charged time, so hopefully your emotions can go into positivism and passion – otherwise, don’t be surprised to find yourself binging on crime and occult documentaries at home alone with a highly suspicious and emotional charged viewpoint of the world. Perhaps being alone isn’t so bad considering a “Half-Moon” in Pisces can result in discomfort around others, public fights, and family problems.
SUNDAY, NOV. 22 – Remember the rebellious and disruptive Uranian energy mentioned earlier in this week? Well, it’s back as the Pisces Moon forms as sextile to Uranus in Taurus and gives us a boost in ambition. This energy wants us to find new methods, solutions, and to be determined in our goals while expressing ourselves in the most original way. Get weird today, and be happy doing so.
