Monday, Nov 22
Today is the first full day of the Sagittarius season, a time when we celebrate life and pontificate our beliefs to those we gather with. Let us keep in mind that we are in between eclipses, and anything that happens during this time can be meaningful to our story. The Moon is in Cancer today but will give us a bit of a rest and time to feel. It won't make any aspects until bedtime when it sextiles Uranus in Taurus, allowing us to feel emotional liberation and perhaps providing us an epiphany.

We are ready for action as we start this Tuesday with the Moon in Cancer trine Mars in Scorpio, but that motivation might be quickly dispersed when the Moon then trines diffusive Neptune in Pisces in the early afternoon. The Sun is with the South Node in Sagittarius today, which can stir up some karmic dust. It is a reminder of the choices we have during the two weeks between eclipses. Do we choose a new story or get wrapped up in the old one? Today we may get a glimpse at the possibilities. The Moon will oppose Pluto later in the evening, so I will give this day an increased rating on the "trigger scale"- especially because Mercury reaches the anaretic degree of crisis at 29º Scorpio around the same time. We could be making some crucial personal decisions this evening.

The Moon is finishing up the voyage through its home sign of Cancer this morning and might feel a little slow to start, but that quickly changes as Mercury moves into Sagittarius around mid-morning. Humans get really philosophical when Hermes visits the sign of the Archer, and that will get kicked up another notch as the Moon moves into Leo to trine Mercury. This centers our mental and emotional processes around feeling seen and being heard. We may be more likely to speak our truth even if we typically stay quiet. So get ready for the day to be abuzz with creative debate - Mercury and the Moon want to put on a bit of a show, after all. The Moon in Leo will also draw our attention to sensitive areas and how we can improve our framework to support healing these wounds around being our authentic selves. Saturn is sextile Chiron currently, and the Moon in Leo will trine Chiron and oppose Saturn at the same time, late in the evening. Take care of yourself this night. If you had any difficult situations or triggering conversations, remember it is possible to build a life that supports you in your continued healing and self-acceptance.

Today is Thanksgiving in the U.S., a time when friends and families come together to celebrate and pontificate. That is extra true for this year's thanksgiving with Mercury closely situated on the South Node of the Moon in Sagittarius as it closes in on its meeting with the Sun. The Moon is in Leo and will square Uranus in Taurus first thing in the morning, adding a bit of a rebellious flare to an already outspoken day. Venus is in a loose but still very active opportunistic sextile with Mars in Scorpio. That is a good thing when it comes to being compassionate in an otherwise triggering situation. By dinnertime, the Moon in Leo will begin to square Mars - this could have tempers flaring briefly. If one is prone to arguing and debating already, be aware that this evening is extraordinarily ripe and fertile ground for a fight. So cool tempers by getting space (if you can) and being grounded in love and compassion. The reason for the season is being Grateful, not Hateful. Hopefully, we can lay loving boundaries down, but there is a possibility this could reflect that you actually NEED to be loud about something. However it works out for you, try to remember to stay in integrity and self-awareness.

Today the Moon is in Leo opposing Jupiter first thing in the morning, bringing up feelings about our convictions and inner truths, which is likely a carryover from the previous day's events. The rest of the day may feel like it floats by as the Moon does not make any other aspects. However, things pick up in the healing realm as Saturn makes an exact sextile to the wounded healer, Chiron, close to the same time that the Moon moves into Virgo, just after dinner. The 3rd Quarter waning square of the Moon to the Nodes & Sun may bring with it realization about what the eclipses mean for us; Tonight is the "last adjustment" of this Moon phase and will be a contemplative, healing, and magical evening. Mars is also getting closer to its trine with Neptune.

What a special day! The Moon in Virgo is inconjunct to Chiron and Saturn making a Yod or 'the finger of God'. Usually, the point of the yod is a place where we need to put our attention, and Virgo's archetype is that of holism, health, wellness, routine, ritual, and pruning. This makes today perfect for getting out in nature or doing some winter cleaning - anything you consider an activity that helps clear your head and heart. Later, the Moon makes a trine to Uranus in Taurus, which will give us feelings of liberation and renewal. Dreams will be super active.
Sunday, Nov 28
Waking up to a transcendental, magical, and beautiful Sunday as several planets make a supportive or opportunistic aspect to Neptune. Mars in Scorpio is trine Neptune, Venus in Capricorn is sextile Neptune, and the Moon in Virgo is opposite Neptune most of the day. If you were looking for a day to restore, renew, relax, and create, this is the perfect time with so many planets in synergy. In addition, there is also a Mercury Cazimi as it meets with the Sun. For me, the best part of this is that essentially, our consciousness and mental processes are renewed by the Sun's fire during this transit. In Sagittarius, this relates to the negative and self-limiting beliefs we have been releasing during this eclipse cycle. Today will be looked on as a huge turning point in our spirit. It seems as if a lot of pieces of the puzzle fall into place. Enjoy!!
The Week of Nov 29 Preview
Monday feels very different from the week prior as we awake with the Moon in Libra first thing. Mercury has now passed the Sun and is charting new territory. Mars makes its exact trine to Neptune today. As far as the rest of the week, the big story is the Solar Eclipse in Sagittarius, Saturday, Dec 4. Everything this week will be a build-up to that with Mars closing in on its sextile to Pluto and square to Jupiter as well as Venus getting closer and closer to its conjunction with Pluto and stationing to go retrograde. Dec 2 - 4 looks particularly energized and fated.
