Weekly Astrology Notes Nov 26 – Dec 3, 2017
Note: Times shown are in Pacific Daylight Time (PDT)
Weekly Summary: The week starts off slow on Sunday morning with the First Quarter Moon from Sagittarius to Pisces, when we need to devote our time to seeking Divine Guidance in order to lay the ground work for this months’ growth. On Monday, Mercury conjunct Saturn will slow people down as well, put folks in sober mood which lasts through the first half of Tuesday. The midweek gives us the last chance to start new projects before Mercury goes Retrograde on Saturday. On Wednesday, Moon in Aries brings a bit more self-confidence and some nice aspects on Thursday morning.
Then things start to get really interesting. On Friday, Mars opposition Uranus brings a point of culmination for the new paradigm of Uranus in Aries. We will all feel a strong compulsion to change our identity, take on the mantle of Uranus in Aries, the spiritual warrior, and what that means for you personally. A strong need to follow your true spiritual path and take a step in your process of evolution. But it’s Mars opposition Aries, so we get a blow to the ego along with it. So it’s not a time of outward rebellion, like we may expect, but rather a time to redirect the forces of change upon your own ego and identity and become the true spiritual warrior.
On a geopolitical level, this aspect brings a point of culmination of liberal (Uranus) ideals. Those who pursue freedom in order to assuage their own ego (Mars) and could care less about the freedom of others, those people get to meet the opposition today. They are the ones who face serious problems and spectacular falls at this time.
Then on Saturday, the much anticipated Jupiter trine Neptune, one of the most benevolent aspects you could find, very much the opposite of the Mars aspect. A gift of healing is shared universally. Jupiter in Scorpio is bringing an end to conflict, by bringing forgiveness and judicial action (Jupiter) to things done in the dark. So it’s a time of ending for Jupiter related things, like politics, religion, professional sports and the news media. The trine to Pisces means those elements of Jupiter now dissolve (Neptune) into the collective (Pisces) where it produces a collective event and a healing.
Put this aspect and the Mars aspect together and we are seeing an end to all of the false liberal people and ideals, those who take liberty at the expense of others. A gift of wisdom (Jupiter) is shared universally. It looks like this is the big weekend for the fall of the fake Democrats.
And there could also be significant economic news associated with the Jupiter trine Neptune. This aspect gives rise to speculation of a currency revaluation, establishment of new universal currencies, and to redistribution of large sums of wealth for the benefit of humanity.
And we have Mercury going Retrograde on Saturday which starts a 21 day period of serious introspection when we need to restructure our thoughts towards lasting goals. And Sunday we have Sun square Neptune which makes for another low-energy, dreamy Sunday. Another day to seek Divine Guidance. So that’s why I am going to call this Divine Guidance week.
On Sunday, A real Pisces day when we need to let go, overcome what we don’t see, avoid delusions and misdirections. Sunday morning is perfect for meditation, we need to seek divine guidance to successfully lay the foundation for this months growth at the First Quarter Moon. Tonight is a good night for dancing or attending a group meeting with a spiritual theme.
On Monday, The morning starts off with a strong burst of energy. But Mercury conjunct Saturn keeps us moving slow and steady throughout the day, focused on duty and responsibility, and bringing good mental concentration. You’ll need to keep your mind and hands busy today in order to stay above judgmental and pessimistic thinking.
On Tuesday, Feeling a bit slow this morning from Mercury conjunct Saturn last night. Very early morning feeling the pain and hard to focus just before the Moon enters Aries at 8:30 in the morning, and for the rest of the day folks are enthusiastic with good instincts for success. Tuesday evening is a good time for social gatherings.
On Wednesday, Moon (Aries) brings self-confidence today with a strong burst of energy in the afternoon.
On Thursday, Moon (Aries) brings some positive aspects this morning, good time for business. However, the restless energy from Mars opposition Uranus early tomorrow is strong this evening, causing tensions to flare.
On Friday, The morning gives us two pleasant Moon aspects, but the day is colored by Mars opposition Uranus which brings restlessness, argumentative behavior and confrontation. It’s all a test to see if we are evolving.
On Saturday, It’s a big day, lots of things happening astrologically. Today there is a mega dose of expansive energy coming from Jupiter trine Neptune and Sun square Neptune, so there’s no boundary (Pisces) on expansion (Sagittarius), lots of compassion and good feelings abound. The Full Moon tonight brings a restless feeling as usual. And late in the evening, Mercury goes Retrograde for the next 3 weeks which may slow things down a bit, force us to turn inward and begin rethinking some things about life. Stay in a safe place on Saturday, this Full Moon will bring out the wild side in folks.
On Sunday, A very dreamy, low energy Pisces day with Sun square Neptune (Pisces). Not feeling like work today, good time to relax.
A real Pisces day when we need to let go, overcome what we don’t see, avoid delusions and misdirections. Sunday morning is perfect for meditation, we need to seek divine guidance to successfully lay the foundation for this months growth at the First Quarter Moon. Tonight is a good night for dancing or attending a group meeting with a spiritual theme.
12:04am – Moon enters Pisces. Emotions dissolve into the collective for the next couple of days. We are more humble, sensitive, caring, showing unconditional love for others. Need to overcome feelings of disappointment or futility, have faith, let yourself cry if you need to. Be careful not to absorb the energy of others, sacrifice your own emotional fulfillment for other people.
9:03am – Moon (Pisces) square Sun (Sagittarius). First Quarter Moon. This months’ regularly scheduled crisis for fulfillment comes from overcoming what you don’t see. The more comfortable (Moon) you are with the blur (Pisces), the farther you’ll be able to see and better connect the dots. Otherwise you may feel confounded by life, overcome by feelings of futility. Easy to delude yourself, misdirected by idealism (Sagittarius) into sacrificing your emotional fulfillment for someone else. That’s the big challenge this morning. Be careful not to overindulge, especially intoxicants. But you’ll need to show compassion, in this way you’ll be able to build a solid foundation for this months’ growth.
It looks pretty good because you’ll notice the Jupiter trine in effect at the square to Sagittarius, helps alleviate the negative side. Overall very expansive, universe is bringing us a spiritual experience, something to enlighten us, a psychic vision changes your perspective, helps you reclaim some lost element of self, bringing resolution and compassion. So we should really see this as a clear message that this month’s growth depends on getting that vision of who you are as a spirit and what you were meant to do in this life, your soul quest. All of this Jupiter energy could induce a spiritual vision.
To that end, I recommend a good long meditation on Sunday morning. Request divine guidance, if you are going to sacrifice yourself to something, do it to a higher source, not to someone who drains your energy. Ask higher source for a message, a vision of what you’re now meant to see about yourself, try to uncover some truth about yourself, which may be uncomfortable to see, humbles you, but it’s much easier to deal with in a meditative state, and it brings inner peace and resolution so you can move forward with great wisdom and maturity. The trine from Jupiter helps bring in that divine guidance to help transform your situation for the better.
7:52pm – Moon (Pisces) trine Jupiter (Scorpio). And Sunday evening as well. Once again the universe shows us it’s time to seek divine guidance, bring in help from the spirit world. Psychic abilities are enhanced, more intuitive, comfortable with the subtle vibrations around us. Good time for social gatherings, especially with a spiritual theme involved, like a group meditation or healing circle. Good aspect for dancing. Be careful not to overindulge.
10:09pm – Moon conjunct Neptune. A perfect aspect for the end of the week. Emotions dissolve into the collective where we obtain important guidance from the universe. Be open. Once again, I should mention dancing is a great way to put yourself in that humble space. Let go and feel vulnerable. Let the universe tickle your belly button.
The morning starts off with a strong burst of energy. But Mercury conjunct Saturn keeps us moving slow and steady throughout the day, focused on duty and responsibility, and bringing good mental concentration. You’ll need to keep your mind and hands busy today in order to stay above judgmental and pessimistic thinking.
9:54am – Moon (Pisces) sextile Pluto (Capricorn) Strong burst of energy to harness your emotional power for the good of yourself and others. Help someone who needs it.
10:59pm – Mercury conjunct Saturn (Sagittarius) Mentally (Mercury) rigid (Saturn), hard to think beyond conventional ideas and values. The mind slows down. Good driving skills, cautious, dependable. Thinking conservatively, liberal ideas judged harshly. Mind is efficient, not concerned with frivolity, not interested in gossip. Speech is inhibited, slow, at low volume, yet clear and understandable with a fatherly, concerned tone.
Good time for rigorous mental work where you must pay close attention to detail, finishing a job through to completion. Good for working with wood, stone and metal. Not a time for long range planning or abstract thought, although a good time for attending to mundane affairs, following through on promises, duties and responsibilities. Mind is sharp and critical which can make communication difficult. Folks are concerned about long term survival, reputation and career. Easy to slip into pessimistic attitude, need to keep the mind and hands busy with useful tasks. Staying in the present moment, not worrying about the future, focusing solely on the task at hand, this is the remedy for breaking through tough Saturn energy every time.
This particular passage of Mercury conjunct Saturn is more significant than usual because Mercury goes Retrograde this Saturday and we get this aspect again next Wednesday, 12/6, so this aspect colors the entire Mercury retrograde period from 12/2 to 12/23. That means we are entering a conservative time when liberal ideals take a back seat to more practical concerns. More about this in the discussion on Mercury Retrograde.
Feeling a bit slow this morning from Mercury conjunct Saturn last night. Very early morning feeling the pain and hard to focus just before the Moon enters Aries at 8:30 in the morning, and for the rest of the day folks are enthusiastic with good instincts for success. Tuesday evening is a good time for social gatherings.
1:41am – Moon (Pisces) trine Venus (Scorpio) Deep feelings and emotional pain find healing and resolution.
3:56am – Moon (Pisces) square Saturn (Sagittarius) Confounded, unable to respond, feeling closed in.
4:09am – Moon (Pisces) square Mercury (Sagittarius) Emotional pain interferes with conscious though processes, feeling disconnected, need to collect yourself with meditation. Void of Course begins.
8:30am – Moon enters Aries. Folks more enthusiastic and headstrong for the next couple of days. A good opportunity to start new projects before Mercury goes Retrograde on Saturday.
9:22pm – Moon (Aries) trine Sun (Sagittarius) Very creative time, folks more charismatic and enthusiastic, good time for social gatherings.
Moon (Aries) brings self-confidence today with a strong burst of energy in the afternoon.
3:53pm – Moon (Aries) square Pluto (Capricorn) Strong burst of energy brings focus and concentration, but jealousy and isolationism as well. Good survival instincts though.
Moon (Aries) brings some positive aspects this morning, good time for business. However, the restless energy from Mars opposition Uranus early tomorrow is strong this evening, causing tensions to flare.
3:13am – Moon (Aries) opposition Mars (Libra) Emotional impulses rise to the surface, overly demanding of one another.
4:16am – Moon conjunct Uranus (Aries) Desire to break up the stagnant energy. Ambitious and headstrong, focused on your own path, very much in your own world.
8:50am – Moon (Aries) trine Saturn (Sagittarius) Focus on duty and responsibility, feeling motivated to be your best.
10:37am – Moon (Aries) trine Mercury (Sagittarius) Good instincts for taking your next step. Communication flows easily. Good time for business transactions. Void of Course begins.
12:38pm – Moon enters Taurus. Moon is exalted in Taurus where it enjoys the calm, sensual earth energy. Best time for a massage. More concerned with sensual pleasures, steadfast and caring.
Thursday evening may be a restless time as Mars opposition Uranus begins to take effect.
The morning gives us two pleasant Moon aspects, but the day is colored by Mars opposition Uranus which brings restlessness, argumentative behavior and confrontation. It’s all a test to see if we are evolving.
1:41am – Venus enters Sagittarius. Until 12/24. Venus in Sagittarius is flirty and friendly, loves freedom of movement in relationships, direct and honest, loves sports and the outdoors, interested in philosophy and higher education and likes foreigners. Relationships (Venus) are a source of growth and prosperity (Sagittarius) during this time. Seek to expand through your relationships and all one to one contacts, be open to new people, especially foreigners who could bring opportunity.
2:04am – Mars (Libra) opposition Uranus (Aries) This aspect could produce sudden, harsh reactions, lashing out at anyone who restricts you, even if it’s for valid reasons. People are restless, impatient, competitive, confrontational, looking to test you to see if you are for real. We are reaching a point of culmination in the Mars Uranus cycle that began on 3/26/17 so you may experience a test for something you started at that time.
The paradigm of Uranus in Aries has brought about the rise of the spiritual warrior, it has been associated with people coming into their own power, showing courage like never before. Mars in Libra, it’s fallen sign, acts in a primitive and adolescent manner. At this aspect, we see a childish opposition to the rise of the spiritual warrior. You could say the warrior faces a test. This test manifests on a individual level as someone who tests you to see if you are living up to your potential. If you have been firm in your commitment to becoming the spiritual warrior, then the opposition from Mars produces a confrontation that you can easily outmaneuver. But if the spiritual warrior is weak, Mars senses the weakness and looks for a fight. So whatever difficult situation arises today, rather than react, see it as encouragement to get you to take a radical new direction in life, one that better manifests the spiritual warrior within you. In this way you can get the best of this aspect and avoid the worst.
In addition, this aspect brings a lot of energy, so it’s important to find a safe outlet. Physical exercise is good but watch out as impulsive behavior could lead to accidents. Relationships may face a test today, Uranus helps break up the stagnant energy but could lead to confrontations in partnerships. Give your partner all the space they need today.
This aspect manifests on a group level as something similar only on a macro scale. We see confrontation between forces symbolizing Uranus in Aries versus those who resist the changes. The last time this occurred was December 2015, almost exactly two years ago. This was during the early stages of the Presidential campaign when Trump began to make headway. It was a contentious time, people were looking for a fight. It was also the time when Daesh (ISIS) came into popular awareness, before that it was under different names. So we saw the emergence of this warrior (Mars) group that named itself after a female (Libra) deity that was in opposition to the new paradigm of Uranus in Aries.
With Jupiter trine Neptune giving us low energy, a time of forgiveness, as well as an ending to conflict, I am thinking that the manifestation for this aspect will be the culmination of Daesh (ISIS), which is to say the end for them. They have been destroyed pretty much everywhere. But we can’t leave out the possibility it could produce another false flag event, one last attempt by the dying cabal to prevent their inevitable demise. But more than anything I believe what we are seeing now is the culmination of the past two years of fighting.
7:08am – Moon (Taurus) opposition Jupiter (Scorpio) Felling lucky, extravagant, desire to be in a crowd. These two Moon aspects should make Friday morning positive and friendly.
7:37am – Moon (Taurus) sextile Neptune (Pisces). Placid and peaceful. Good for rock medicine, working with crystals and healing stones.
5:53pm – Moon (Taurus) trine Pluto (Capricorn). Another strong burst of energy to bring an opportunity for personal success. Void of Course begins, continues until tomorrow afternoon. A long V/C. Not a time to start new projects Friday evening or Saturday morning.
It’s a big day, lots of things happening astrologically. Today there is a mega dose of expansive energy coming from Jupiter trine Neptune and Sun square Neptune, so there’s no boundary (Pisces) on expansion (Sagittarius), lots of compassion and good feelings abound. The Full Moon tonight brings a restless feeling as usual. And late in the evening, Mercury goes Retrograde for the next 3 weeks which may slow things down a bit, force us to turn inward and begin rethinking some things about life. Stay in a safe place on Saturday, this Full Moon will bring out the wild side in folks.
Saturday begins with a Moon Void of Course until the early afternoon.
1:21pm – Moon enters Gemini. As Moon in Gemini stimulates our communication, Mercury goes retrograde, so this passage of Moon in Gemini will be a time of writing down your thoughts and engaging in artistic endeavors to help overcome the restless energy. Use your hands more when you feel the voice is held back. Very therapeutic.
6:22pm – Jupiter (Scorpio) trine Neptune (Pisces) Aspect stimulates the idealistic side of us. Time to express universal love (Pisces) for all beings, no matter how much you philosophically (Jupiter) agree. Abundance of compassion and tenderness for everyone, brings out the humanitarian in us. We express Divine Love which may come in a multitude of ways but which lead us all to a collective experience. You may feel lazy and more interested in exploring the subtle vibrations around you than working.
So tell someone you love them, express love, art, music, poetry, compassion, healing and explore cosmic awareness. Show compassion for the disadvantaged, it is the season of giving. This aspect guides us to see (Jupiter) the interconnectedness (Pisces) of all beings and see the collective value (Scorpio) in all beings. Helps us look past the bad things, see the good side in others, no matter what they have done. What awaits us is a healing (Scorpio) shared universally (Pisces). Along the way, we may see an abundance of tears, which is a good thing, so don’t hold back if you feel the need.
Aspect helps us overcome religious (Jupiter) divisions by dissolving (Pisces) the boundary between ideologies (Jupiter). Also helps overcome religious dogma and limited viewpoints, which should help us on both an individual and collective level.
On a personal level, if there some issue in your life, big or small, which requires you to take a leap (Jupiter) of faith (Pisces), now is the time to take that leap, luck is on your side. Now is the time to overcome the limitations to what you don’t see, let go of fear. Some may experience an increased interest in religion, philosophy. Connection with foreigners is favored. Good time to learn and/or practice healing, such as Reiki, massage or meditation.
Expressed externally, becoming a part of some community effort to improve conditions for everyone, especially the disadvantaged. Look to your chart to see where this aspect is manifesting and if you have any concurrent transits to see how this energy activates your chart.
From a geopolitical viewpoint, this is the moment when liberal (Jupiter) politics gets thrown into the ocean (Pisces). Jupiter in it’s death cycle in Scorpio, feels a little like Pisces. We’ve seen it so clearly lately here in the USA, the Democratic Party is falling apart, dissolving and all sorts of deep, dark secrets (Scorpio) are pouring out to create a collective experience (Pisces). This moment presents humanity with a golden opportunity to look beyond politics and religious divisions.
Scorpio rules money. This aspect is coinciding with the ongoing fall of the US petrodollar and the simultaneous emergence of a new system for international trade, this aspect should facilitate that process. In fact it’s likely to coincide with some positive changes in the world economic system. If there is to be some sort of currency reset then this aspect would be a perfect opportunity.
Consider Jupiter in Scorpio in the natal chart is often associated with inherited wealth, and in this case it goes to Pisces. A good example is Saudi Arabia, billions in wealth is being taken away from rich princes and redistributed for the good of the nation.
Sometimes we see large group events, people pouring into the streets on big Jupiter-Neptune aspects, with the Full Moon happening tonight that may be the case once again.
11:34pm – Mercury Retrograde. We have a long period for Mercury in Sagittarius as Mercury goes Retrograde at 29d17′ Sagittarius, goes back down to 13d02′, goes Direct on 12/23. 3 weeks. The most notable event for this Retrograde period is Mercury conjunct Saturn close at the start of the Retrograde and then again on 12/6.
When a planet goes Retrograde, the energy turns inward, and things related to that planet do not function in the same way, there is a hesitation and uncertainty coupled with a need for reflection on the matter. Mercury rules communication, the voice, retail transactions, driving and short distance travel. For this reason you will always find advice against travel during Mercury Retrograde. Hard to speak, uncertainty about conscious direction in life, need to review the situation before making a commitment. During Retrograde the planet goes over old territory and that’s because it’s necessary to go over things again and rethink your opinion. During this time we need to restructure our thoughts towards lasting goals, get ride of superfluous distractions. Saturn slows down the mind and the mouth.
With Mercury conjunct Saturn close at the start of the Retrograde period it brings a lot more limitation to the voice during the entire Retrograde period. The mind slows down, people are quiet, think and talk slowly with low volume, opinions are mostly not spoken partly because of Saturn and partly because of the Retrograde, not sure what to say until it’s over. What is spoken is sparse and authoritative. There is much pessimism, doubt and disappointment. People are stubbornly focused on established (Saturn) viewpoints and are not open to new ideas. Only conservative opinions are welcome, liberal viewpoints take a back seat for a while. In politics, rebellious talk can be tantamount to treason. It will be hard for alternative voices to be heard. This will constrain a lot of voices to a rigid holding pattern until the Retrograde is over. Some people will be so strongly effected by this energy that events will leave them speechless. It will be a time of sober (Saturn) realizations and therapy.
Consider where in your chart this Retrograde is happening. That area needs more attention. You need to go over old ground and rethink where you have been placing your conscious attention lately, inevitably you’ll find that you’ve been missing something in the area related to 13-29d Sagittarius. The house placement gives you the best indication of where you need to focus more. Attend to that. One last personal item, Mercury rules siblings, so communication between siblings is limited, especially if past issues haven’t been resolved yet.
Mercury doesn’t go Direct until after Saturn enters Capricorn. So Saturn in the last degrees of Sagittarius is going to be a very repressive time when no one feels comfortable voicing an opinion. The freight train of accusations regarding entertainment figures will continue, if for no other reason than to distract us from the really important issues, but it’s doubtful that any headway can be made against the most pressing issues of our time. I’m thinking there could be a media blackout as everyone waits to see how the behind-the-scenes battles conclude. At the least, there will be a lack of information.
Typically not a good time for business or to make large purchases. Note, Mercury goes Direct on 12/22 at 5pm, maybe the last minute shoppers will have an advantage this year. Generally speaking the next 21 days is not a time to start new projects, sign contracts or begin a long journey. Typically you want to wait until Retrograde is over because you don’t know what the situation will be like until then.
On Saturday evening,
Sun square Neptune is in effect on Saturday evening. For sure this aspect will add to the dreamy effect of the Jupiter aspect. The low energy of this aspect does not mean that if there are any large group events, they’ll be muted. Overindulgence in drugs and alcohol is common with this aspect, and Jupiter/Sag makes people loud and boisterous. Also add in the Full Moon, which is strongest tonight, happening early tomorrow morning. So the wild defiant side in folks could come more than usual this evening. Best to stay home as all of this energy will bring out some upredictable events.
A very dreamy, low energy Pisces day with Sun square Neptune (Pisces). Not feeling like work today, good time to relax and seek connection to source.
3:44am – Sun (Sagittarius) square Neptune (Pisces) This aspect has similar qualities to the yesterday’s Jupiter trine Neptune, so it makes us lazy and dreamy and asks us to take a leap of faith, seek connection to source. We are inspired (Sagittarius) to act on our beliefs and a bit delusional (Pisces). Another good aspect for artistic endeavors like music and dancing.
Energy level is typically low with this aspect, inability to stand up for yourself, lack of focus and determination, and feeling disappointed. Not really feeling like work today. Good day to relax. Not really a day to make agreements or start a new project. Today we feel compassion for our fellow human beings and so it’s more a day to lend to hand to someone else, be of service. Sometimes the only way to serve yourself is to serve others. This will help give you that profound connection to the collective that we all seek today. The temptation to overindulge in food, alcohol and drugs is strong. Be careful as these things have a more intoxicating effect under this aspect.
Moon aspects to accompany this aspect.
7:31am – Moon (Gemini) square Neptune (Pisces). How appropriate. Add even more cloudiness to Sunday morning. Gemini to Pisces, things you don’t see (Pisces) interfere with conscious thought processes (Gemini). Meditation is a must now. The spirit world (Pisces) is talking (Gemini), seek Divine guidance.
7:47am – Moon (Gemini) opposition Sun (Sagittarius). Full Moon at 11d40′. Void of Course begins. During the Full Moon we have more energy and more emotional highs and lows. We are looking for recognition that this months’ plans are working out in our favor. So we display a lot, show off more, to give the world notice that we’ve arrived at a moment of success and we expect some feedback. If things aren’t going well this month then that behavior can turn self-destructive. In this case, behaving bombastic and professorial (Sagittarius), overindulgence, getting too loud, getting in someone’s face, having disputes over politics and opinions.
With the accompanying planetary aspects this weekend, this could make it a Full Moon to remember, with people taking to the streets and putting on dramatic displays. Use caution like all Full Moons.
That’s all for this weeks’ aspects.
This Thursday 11/30, USA gets two challenging transits that could prove to be confrontational, maybe it’s the day the sealed indictments are unsealed. Mars square Mercury and Sun opposition Uranus/Ascendant. This brings potential for conflicts.
The Mars opposition Uranus will effect USA. It will create an event that restricts and restructures USA politics (Mercury).
Mars square Mercury means it’s a high energy day, people expressing strong opinions, dominating the conversation, can easily lead to arguments, political confrontation.
The T-square on USA’s Mercury means the USA acts like the fulcrum to balance the opposition. In the process, USA’s politics (Mercury) gets thrown off-balance, leading to a very precarious position for the politicians. Everyone suddenly gets really cautious, conservative.
Sun opposition Uranus/Ascendant. The Decendant is the point of open enemies and the Sun opposition is a time of important encounters that could lead to confrontation. Sun opposition Uranus brings volatile surprise encounters. These two transits tell me the sealed indictments are unsealed this week.
That’s all this week 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.
