Weekly Astrology Notes Nov 5-12, 2017
Note: Times shown are in Pacific Daylight Time (PDT)
Weekly Summary: Saturn trine Uranus on Saturday 11/11 makes this week one to remember. We feel like our freedom and independence (Uranus) are a bit more restricted (Saturn) this week, but the trine means things seem to just work out fine so long as you maintain your composure and just keep on going. Rebellious behavior that is clearly unrealistic is seen for what it is so it can be cleaned out. We are compelled by necessity to display maturity and to just maintain our grip on reality.
Saturn in the last degrees of Sagittarius seems to be using every opportunity, including this trine, to get rid of the old to make way for the new. We are seeing spectacular falls as people within the existing authority structure (Saturn) face destructive scrutiny. Numerous politicians currently under suspicion all seem to be having tough Saturn transits concurrent with this aspect. And I will go through a whole laundry list including both the Podesta brothers and Paul Manafort, and several others. I’ll also talk about Trump who’s been going through Uranus square Venus this week. Then a bit about Colin Kaepernick showing how he is a symbol of his generation and the NFL kneeling issue. And Kevin Spacey.
On Sunday, Moon in Gemini keeps us mentally active today. Mercury enters Sagittarius where it will be for the rest of the years.
On Monday, Moon in Gemini keeps us busy talkative today. In the evening an opportunity awaits if you don’t give up.
On Tuesday, Moon in Cancer brings out you sensitive side today in the early afternoon and the late evening, but the early evening may leave us quarrelsome. Take care as Venus enters Scorpio today, bringing out the jealous side in us for the next month.
On Wednesday, Moon in Cancer aspects have us feeling isolated today, in need of security. Heightened psychic abilities and interest in esoteric subjects this evening as Sun sextile Pluto for early Thursday morning begins to take effect tonight.
On Thursday, Sun sextile Pluto gives us good focus and concentration today to get a lot accomplished and make constructive changes in your life. And this afternoon Moon in Leo makes us boisterous and overly dramatic.
On Friday, The Last Quarter Moon around midday brings a struggle for fulfillment. Otherwise a good day for romance and recreation with Moon in Leo.
On Saturday, Saturn trine Uranus arrives. A culmination of events are happening at this time that will define this year. We are seeing learning lessons broadcast throughout the social sphere. Wisdom, the kind which pours out of Saturn in the last degrees of Sagittarius, is flowing freely (trine) to the populace (Uranus) and everyone is getting smarter.
On Sunday, Try to recall your dreams when you awake on Sunday morning. The early morning Moon opposition Neptune makes us dreamy and able to sense to subtle vibrations around us. Later in the day, two good Moon aspects make for a nice recuperative afternoon and evening.
Moon in Gemini keeps us mentally active today. Mercury enters Sagittarius where it will be for the rest of the years.
1:29am – Moon (Taurus) opposition Mercury (Scorpio) Emotions conflict with conscious mental processes, obsessive thinking.
2am – Daylight Savings Time begins.
2:26am – Moon enters Gemini. We’re more mentally active for the next couple of days. Emotional fulfillment comes from Gemini activities. Writing and speaking more as we catch up on missed connections. Feel we need to complete things before the next cycle so we’re restless and may need to slow down.
11:19am – Mercury enters Sagittarius. Until January 12, 2018. Almost 10 weeks as Mercury goes Retrograde on 12/3 at 29d Sagittarius, back down to 13d, goes Direct on 12/23. Mercury is fallen in Sagittarius, although it is not nearly as problematic as it is for other planets in their fallen sign. Mercury in Sagittarius has a generally positive outlook, idealistic, good sense of humor, but no brakes on the mouth, so they say whatever is on their mind without considering if it’s appropriate. Typical Sagittarius themes are good for the consciousness mind now, such as philosophy, higher education, sports and travel. Since Mercury is spending so much time in Sagittarius, it looks like the message is that we need to get a higher education on matters during this time. My father used to say that Sagittarius is just a Gemini that went to college.
4:53pm – Moon (Gemini) trine Mars (Libra) A bit more energy on Sunday afternoon to have a lively conversation (Gemini trine Libra).
8:58pm – Moon (Gemini) square Neptune (Pisces) Hard to communicate (Mercury) because of things that you cannot see (Pisces), isolationism, self-deception, problems with siblings (Gemini). In these moments connection to animals can help which are associated with Neptune because they represent pathways into the dream world. They help open a pathway through the subconscious (Moon) mind and into the collective unconscious (Neptune) so you can find that missing connection to spirit.
Moon in Gemini keeps us busy talkative today. In the evening an opportunity awaits if you don’t give up.
6:57pm – Moon (Gemini) opposition Saturn (Sagittarius) Emotions deflate and we want to turn off the world, escape from the noise. Loss of appetite. Feeling low but don’t give up because the next aspect is the opposite and happening soon afterward.
7:54pm – Moon (Gemini) sextile Uranus (Aries) Looking to stimulate the mind, open to new ideas and unusual encounters. Good time for intellectual pursuits and learning about what’s really going on in the world. More psychic and instinctual.
Moon in Cancer brings out you sensitive side today in the early afternoon and the late evening, but the early evening may leave us quarrelsome. Take care as Venus enters Scorpio today, bringing out the jealous side in us for the next month.
2:39am – Moon (Gemini) trine Venus (Libra) Good time to express your feelings. Void of Course begins.
2:44am – Moon enters Cancer. Feeling more sensitive and in need of nurturing for the next couple of days. You want to spend more time at home, crawl into your shell. Moon begins a new cycle in Cancer when the home becomes the starting point for a new cycle of growth.
3:39am – Venus enters Scorpio. Until 12/2. Venus is in it’s detriment in Scorpio where the deep, dark nature of Scorpio does not allow the gentle, delicate side of Venus to show forth. Venus in Scorpio has an affinity (Venus) with money (Scorpio), but they can be too intense for many, they need to learn coping skills to deal with rejection and feelings of jealousy. During this time one-to-one (Venus) interactions become more intense with a feeling that there is much left unsaid under the surface. You may feel more passionate, yet more selfish with your affections, more aware of the power they hold. The concern with personal power is not all bad and it can lead you to a better ability to sense good money making opportunities. In fact with Jupiter now in Scorpio this is a good time to look for ways to earn more money.
12:47pm – Moon (Cancer) trine Jupiter (Scorpio) Emotions expand to help someone, lift them up emotionally. Also a good sense of timing, knowing when an opportunity is at hand.
7:39pm – Moon (Cancer) square Mars (Libra) Emotionally demanding, quarrelsome. Insecurities arise, gets in the way of relating to others. Poor digestion. Be careful of spicy foods.
9:37pm – Moon (Cancer) trine Neptune (Pisces) Empathic, easily sensing the emotions of others. Very sentimental and easily brought to tears. Good time for meditation, light candles, burn incense.
Moon in Cancer aspects have us feeling isolated today, in need of security. Heightened psychic abilities and interest in esoteric subjects this evening as Sun sextile Pluto for early Thursday morning is in effect tonight.
5:34am – Moon (Cancer) trine Sun (Scorpio) Very creative aspect, looking for money making opportunities and to merge your creative (Sun) efforts with the collective (Scorpio).
7:06am – Moon (Cancer) opposition Pluto (Capricorn) In the morning intense feelings bring intense encounters. Be careful not to overwhelm others. Feeling anger towards mom. Regenerate the home environment, clean-up and repair whatever needs fixing. Restore the home so that is has all of the nurturing qualities necessary to build a new emotional foundation.
9:14pm – Moon (Cancer) square Uranus (Aries) Unsettling, restless, interruptions cause frustration. Desire to break free from restrictions. Void of Course begins, continues until tomorrow morning.
Sun sextile Pluto early tomorrow morning means it’s a psychic evening and lots of sexual energy to go along with it. Folks show a strong interest in the occult and esoteric subjects tonight.
Sun sextile Pluto gives us good focus and concentration today to get a lot accomplished and make constructive changes in your life. And this afternoon Moon in Leo makes us boisterous and overly dramatic.
4:08am – Sun (Scorpio) sextile Pluto (Capricorn) The Sun gets a double does of Scorpio energy with this aspect. It’s a great aspect that enables you to muster all of the energy necessary to make constructive changes in your life. You desire to merge your creative efforts (Sun) with the collective (Pluto) and you feel inspired to do something good for everyone concerned, even if it’s an individual effort, you want to display integrity and good moral character. This aspect encourages you to repair and regenerate whatever need fixing in your life, re-collecting your energy so you can move forward with great confidence. Good aspect for business. We’re looking to get to the bottom of things today, able to probe deeply on matters, address vital issues and make changes for the better.
More interested in psychology, the occult and esoteric subjects. Heightened psychic abilities. More sexual energy floating about. People display a quiet, confident reserve, trusting in themselves and their innate abilities.
With all this Scorpio energy, can become fixated and stubborn, or preoccupied with sex, but if you make the effort, you may notice your psychic abilities are stronger. Either way, you should be able to get more work done than usual as this aspect is sure to bring lots of stamina and see things through to the end.
4:29am – Moon enters Leo. Affections turn towards creative endeavors and hobbies for the next couple of days. Good time for recreation and spending time with your children. Brings out the drama is folks as we are all more concerned with romance.
9:14am – Moon (Leo) square Venus (Scorpio) Feeling uncomfortable, internal fight between forces of light (Leo) and forces of darkness (Scorpio). Not a good time for social gatherings.
2:36pm – Moon (Leo) trine Mercury (Sagittarius) Very expressive, loud, dramatic, creative energy seeks an outlet. The excessive need for attention may lead to childish behavior. Great sense of humor.
3:46pm – Moon (Leo) square Jupiter (Scorpio) Prone to indulgence, excessive behavior, jealousy and exaggeration of your qualities. Easy to put your foot in your mouth.
The Last Quarter Moon around midday brings a struggle for fulfillment. Otherwise a good day for romance and recreation with Moon in Leo.
12:35am – Moon (Leo) sextile Mars (Libra) A bit of high energy late, middle of the night, good time for romance.
12:36pm – Moon (Leo) square Sun (Scorpio). This month the Last Quarter Moon is characterized as the square from Leo to Scorpio, a fight between light and dark. So we are feeling an internal battle around midday, struggling with insecurities regarding self-worth. Feeling like you need to make a critical decision, something of vital importance.
Saturn trine Uranus arrives. A culmination of events are happening at this time that will define this year.
12:55am – Moon (Leo) trine Saturn (Sagittarius). The Moon activates this big aspect early in the morning nicely forming a Grand Trine. Note both Moon aspects happen the exact same minute.
12:55am – Moon (Leo) trine Uranus (Aries). Void of Course begins.
1:41am – Saturn (Sagittarius) trine Uranus (Aries). 12/24/16, 5/19/17 and this is the last pass. The current evolutionary paradigm (Uranus in Aries) is in harmonic synchronicity (trine) with the dying authority structure (Saturn in the last degrees of Sagittarius). A culmination of events are happening at this time that will define this year for many. We are seeing learning lessons broadcast throughout the social sphere. Wisdom, the kind which pours out of Saturn in the last degrees of Sagittarius, is flowing freely (trine) to the populace (Uranus) and everyone is getting smarter (Uranus). It’s not the usual interpretation, but we need to put this aspect in the present time and the reality we live in. This aspect is coinciding with spectacular endings, similar to the Saturn square Chiron last week. I’ve talked about this aspect for the last couple of weeks, so I’ll try not to repeat much of what I’ve said earlier, please review the last two weeks reports for more information.
On a personal level, generally speaking when this occurs as a transit in your life, it is considered a good time when you can easily balance tradition and duty with the room to add new things into your life. It is often seen as a time when the rewards for previous challenges at the square come to fruition, so you get a payoff. Since the first pass, we have had the opportunity to learn new skills, apply ourselves with much self-discipline. And it’s critical that we do this now otherwise face greater difficulty at the opposition. At this time, you should ask yourself if you have learned anything new in the past year, if not then at this time you still have the opportunity to dedicate yourself to learning something new, developing a new skill which will give you greater mobility in life, help you to meet new friends and develop the unique side of yourself. So if you are in a rut, this is a wake-up call to get moving this week. As well, aspect brings social reform and encourages us to build (Saturn) community (Uranus), so it’s a good energy to encourage getting involved in the community. So opportunity to advance may come for those who strike that delicate balance between ambition and tradition.
On a geopolitical level this aspect has brought new life the conservative politics and it has helped people like Donald Trump who has Uranus conjunct Sun in the 10th house. Traditional (Saturn) values are modernized (Uranus).
Interestingly, we see a confluence of transits at this last pass. In fact, the list of politicians getting powerful transits it makes me think we will see some significant event this time.
The notorious Saturn in the last degrees of Sagittarius seems to miss no opportunities to bring spectacular falls or events. Uranus brings changes, in this case the change should be for the better as old authority structures holding us back are removed. The need to modernize (Uranus) our way of life and become more aware of what’s going on means we are pushing aside things of the past. Uranus in Aries acknowledges the unique quality of every individual and promises greater equality amongst the sexes and is using this opportunity to dump the impractical elements of Uranian behavior, exposing those who take their liberty at the expense of the liberty of others. They face judgment and are dying off.
Try to recall your dreams when you awake on Sunday morning. The early morning Moon opposition Neptune makes us dreamy and able to sense to subtle vibrations around us. Later in the day, two good Moon aspects make for a nice recuperative afternoon and evening.
1:31am – Moon (Virgo) square Mercury (Sagittarius) Emotions and intellect not working well together, subconscious desires interfere with normal communication process.
5:24am – Moon (Virgo) opposition Neptune (Pisces) Your heart reaches out to connect with another, could be anyone, who gives you sympathy and compassion (Neptune) regarding your lost emotions and heartfelt desires. Able to sense the subtle vibrations around you but easy to delude yourself. Despite the difficult emotional challenge this aspect brings, it facilitates lots of interactions with the general public whereby you can be very helpful (Virgo) towards others.
4:04pm – Moon (Virgo) trine Pluto (Capricorn) Energy for transformation, change for the better. Skillful (Virgo) use of energy leads to success (Capricorn). Helps you recuperate (Pluto).
10:55pm – Moon (Virgo) sextile Sun (Scorpio) The last sextile before the New Moon is always a good time, perfect for a Sunday evening to spend time with loved ones. Also helps you recuperate (Scorpio).
That’s all for this weeks’ aspects.
It’s all about Saturn trine Uranus this week and how it is coinciding with all of these spectacular falls and renewed scrutiny of politicians and their shady deals, there’s one thing in common, difficult Saturn transits. So Saturn in the last degrees of Sagittarius is getting rid of the old to make way for the new. There is so much that society needs to let go of now and we can see each of these individuals as a microcosm within a whole organism that is going through sweeping changes. Each one of them represents a part of the old authority structure that is dysfunctional and needs to pass away. So if we just focus on the personalities of the individuals concerned then we’ll miss the overall meaning. The things these people have done, the crimes they have committed, they are not just cases of individuals doing something wrong within an overall functional system, rather they themselves are representatives of a dysfunctional system that is changing. These individuals were just too stubborn to change when they saw it coming.
Pluto conjunct Sun, last pass on 12/13, so it’s ripe for resolution. As to whether or not he goes down with his brother, it doesn’t look good for him. The transformation this transit brings causes stuff to come up, Pluto is like a volcano. That’s all part of a usually good process for most folks that reforms your character, but for him, he has no control over the process. Saturn opposition Uranus, last pass 12/1 brings judgment, just like for Hillary at 25dGemini. Limits his mobility, reduces his circle of friends and associates and considering Saturn in the last degrees of Sagittarius, it’s one more reason to believe he is facing serious problems.
Saturn opposition Saturn is certainly bringing judgment and limitation to his career, kind of makes you unsure if you are in the right career in life, certainly applies to him right now. Jupiter square Pluto coming soon, 11/20, will increase his drive and ambition so he won’t be shy about what he needs to do to defend himself, but it could also mean judicial action against him and he needs to be careful of accidents. Saturn square Neptune and Pluto square Mercury coming in January does not encourage optimism regarding his legal challenges. Career (Saturn) sacrifice (Neptune) and a need to speak (Mercury) your truth (Pluto).
Yet another one with Saturn opposition Uranus, last pass 11/23.
Saturn opposition Uranus as I’ve mentioned numerous times in the past. This time she has another serious problem, it’s been alleged she colluded to sell America’s uranium to the Russians.
But the concurrent Uranus sextiles for these people gives them wiggle room to get out of it.
Debbie Wasserman Shultz
Saturn square Saturn, exact on 11/11. Not so sure the Uranus semi-sextile is going to help her out.
All of these people are facing serious judgment and career (Saturn) ending challenges. So I think we can clearly see a synchronicity between these times of serious scrutiny and Saturn in the last degrees of Sagittarius.
There are several people who have planets at 25-26d Leo who get a Grand Trine from this Saturn trine Uranus, most notable Trump, but also Benjamin Netanyahu (Mars), Bill Clinton (Sun), Huma Abedin (Moon). Typically we expect to see these people doing well under this set of transits, but I hesitate to predict across the board good times for these guys because it all depends on whatever change (Uranus) the universe deems necessary for Saturn at this time.
However, Uranus square Venus is bringing some surprises, makes him restless and uneasy about his relationships some of which could be modernized or severed if they can’t be salvaged, such as with Jared Kushner, whom Trump seems to have turned sour on lately as he realizes the bad advice Kushner has given him. The Saturn quincunx Venus compels him to make a sober assessment of his partnerships (Venus).
Just wanted to mention him acting as a symbol for his generation. Notice this Saturn trine Uranus aspect has made numerous strong transits to his natal chart, activating his natal Saturn conjunct Uranus trine Jupiter. Since he is labeled as the originator of the NFL kneeling protest, we should take note. These are classically not considered bad transits, but for him the manifestation has been negative as he has allowed himself to get caught up in a political movement to the detriment of his career and become a reluctant symbol for his generation.
You can see him as a representative of the Uranus in Sagittarius generation (1981-1988). This is a very expansive combination, consider themselves to be enlightened (Uranus) based on their perspective (Sagittarius). Friends (Uranus) can be limited to only those who share the same philosophical (Sagittarius) perspective. When Saturn energy interacts with this intellectual arrogance, they react negatively feeling that any limitation is unbearable. The slightest limitation on their freedom (Uranus) is cause for philosophical disagreement, especially for him who also has Saturn close by. So we can see him as a symbol of someone who is manifesting a group learning lesson for everyone in his generation. They all have a hard time dealing with authority figures, if they don’t see their value, it doesn’t exist. And the thing that makes him such a good example is this trine, from Sagittarius to Jupiter (Aries) is notorious for giving someone a God complex. The cosmic form (Sagittarius) of creation takes root in the identity (Aries) where one tries to become the cosmic form (Jupiter), in this case he becomes the symbol of a political (Jupiter) movement. A good example.
He’s facing lots of accusations regarding his alleged pedophile behavior. Checking his transits, we see that at the time of the revelations, Jupiter conjunct Neptune. Normally a very good transit, one of the best, brings out abundance (Jupiter) of compassion (Neptune), a time when you feel a greater connection to humanity. But this is surely not the way he would have consciously preferred. His subsequent announcement that he is gay, something we could expect from the Neptune opposition Venus transit, is not working to quell the criticism.
As far as the Saturn trine Uranus aspect being a factor, I suspect his Moon is probably closer to 26d Aries, we just don’t have his birth time. Like Weinstein and so many others the lack of a birth time leaves us without transits to the Ascendant and MC. Nonetheless, since he’s a major figure in the news these days, I thought it appropriate to at least show his transits this week. But I am not willing to chalk this up to the Saturn trine Uranus at this point. He seems to be part of a much larger trend for which we are all searching for clues.
Saturn trine Uranus
Moving to the chart of the exact moment, we see the Moon completing a Grand Trine in Fire, encouraging us to harness the universal forces of creativity to achieve life mastery. And the Yod pointing toward the MC compels us to follow the voice of God within.
On a personal level this week, getting back to the point I made at the introduction, this week we feel a bit limited (Saturn) in our freedom (Uranus). My advice is to restructure your life in some way, utilize this energy to get rid of things that you’ve outgrown so that when the opposition arrives you won’t be forced to change by some outside authority structure, that’s the basic lesson for all the trines, you want to utilize the energy of the trine to avoid the pitfalls at the squares and oppositions. So now, if you can, dedicate yourself to learning something new, a new skill, something to apply yourself to, something that will increase your intelligence and enhance the unique (Uranus) aspects of yourself. The hard work and dedication (Saturn) necessary to learn a new skill (Uranus) will be rewarded by increased freedom later on.
On a geopolitical level, the big question is at what point does this reach a critical mass? Will there be mass arrests or revelations that change the fabric of society to make way for the new authority structure to come into being? And we are still patiently awaiting an announcement regarding the secret space program, contact with non-terrestrial humans, and what they found in Antarctica. It seems that all of these so-called big events we are seeing now are really small when compared to the really big event this could all be leading up to. I sense that is what we are all really doing here on youtube, looking for that information.
And my last point, I would like to open the channel up to suggestions for changes and improvements. Is there stuff you’d like to see more of or less of, what’s working for you, what isn’t, please let me know, I’d love to get your feedback. Last week someone pointed out I have been spelling Aries incorrectly. I must apologize for that to all of those Aries out there. Honestly, I really do need your feedback so I can improve this channel.
That’s all for weekly astrology notes. Thanks for viewing and thanks for liking my video and please subscribe if you haven’t already. Many blessings and have a great day.
