Note: Times shown are in Pacific Daylight Time (PDT)
Weekly Summary: This Sunday 12/3 Sun square Neptune makes it a dreamy and lazy Sunday. The early part of the week, Monday and Tuesday, not much going on. But starting Tuesday evening and Wednesday we have a big day with 3 aspects, Mercury conjunct Saturn, Mercury sextile Mars and Mars sextile Saturn, making Wednesday very productive, lots of mental focus and activity, a day when you’ll need to work with your hands, preferably doing some craftwork or building something meant to last. Then it’s pretty much smooth sailing through Thursday and Friday with Moon in Leo making it a creative time. The upcoming weekend looks interesting as well, Mercury trine Uranus and Venus square Neptune early Sunday morning will make it a good time to be out and about this coming weekend.
On Sunday, A very dreamy, low energy Pisces day with Sun square Neptune (Pisces). Not feeling like work today, good time to relax.
On Monday, Monday morning starts off strong with lots of positive energy, then the going gets rough for a while until the early afternoon when Moon enters Cancer and we get more in touch with are feelings.
On Tuesday, Hard to get out of bed and go to work this morning. Moon (Cancer) gives us some dreamy and indulgent aspects. Makes you feel like going into your shell. But the evening is colored by early Wednesday aspects which bring a lot of mental focus.
On Wednesday, A busy, productive and creative day. You need to spend time working with your hands. Any type of craftwork like working with wood, metal and stone or making pottery would be an excellent outlet for this energy. In the morning we’re a bit restless and agitated, but Moon in Leo starting the early afternoon makes a very creative time, good time to work on your hobbies.
On Thursday, Moon (Leo) aspects make it a creative and care-free day, good time for romance and recreation.
On Friday, Moon (Leo) brings a fantastic group of aspects today, making a day for play, not work. Lots of creative and physical energy, inspiration, lust for life.
On Saturday, Moon (Virgo) has us working overtime around mid-day, but it’s a good time for business in the afternoon, which leads into the evening when Mercury trine Uranus, happening early Sunday morning, is most strongly in effect, brings mental stimulation, ambition, surprise encounters, lots of transactions, should be a popular time for shopping this evening and tomorrow. Also Mars enters Scorpio today.
On Sunday, A perfect time to mingle with the crowd. Mercury trine Uranus will get us moving around, interested in new things, open to different people, new experiences. And Venus square Neptune will dissolve our barriers, help us absorb the energy of the spirit of the holidays, and put us in a generous mood. Although Moon (Virgo) aspects give us a couple of challenges mid-morning and early evening. But otherwise a good day to be out and about.
A very dreamy, low energy Pisces day with Sun square Neptune (Pisces). Not feeling like work today, good time to relax.
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. This square requires us to make a leap of faith, so today we are looking to overcome our limitations, take a leap of faith, usually associated with religious of philosophical or political ideal we carry. 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.
It’s also a good time for meditation and whatever it is that you do to find your connection to Source. You’ll find yourself more mentally open today and able to transcend typical thought forms and catch a glimpse beyond the mundane where you will find great inspiration and understanding. A good mantra can help. Release your mind, see what you find, bring it on home to your people.
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.
Monday morning starts off strong with lots of positive energy, then the going gets rough for a while until the early afternoon when Moon enters Cancer and we get more in touch with are feelings.
4:37am – Moon (Gemini) sextile Uranus (Aries) Early morning easy to rise, ambitious and ready to get going.
7:57am – Moon (Gemini) trine Mars (Libra) More positive energy to get us going Monday morning. Lots of physical energy, communication flows easily.
9:46am – Moon (Gemini) opposition Saturn (Sagittarius) Mid-morning Monday we slow down a bit, lack flexibility as work seems harder than usual.
11:13am – Moon (Gemini) opposition Mercury-r (Sagittarius) Later in the morning, mind is restless, communication difficult, get crossed circuits, nervous tension. Void of Course begins.
12:37pm – Moon enters Cancer. Probably a good idea to wait until now to have lunch, if you can. Much better digestion with Moon, which rules the stomach, in Cancer. We are more in need of comfort and nurturing for the next couple of days. You may need to crawl into your shell to nurture yourself, spend a little more time at home.
Hard to get out of bed and go to work this morning. Moon (Cancer) gives us some dreamy and indulgent aspects. Makes you feel like going into your shell. But the evening is colored by early Wednesday aspects which bring a lot of mental focus.
6:51am – Moon (Cancer) trine Neptune (Pisces). May be hard to get out of bed on Tuesday morning. Feeling warm and soft and prefer to keep on dreaming. In fact, it should be easier to recall your dreams this morning.
7:38am – Moon (Cancer) trine Jupiter (Scorpio). Feeling warm and sincere, indulgent, not interested in duty and responsibility. Not really feeling like going to work this morning.
5:07pm – Moon (Cancer) opposition Pluto (Capricorn). A time of when subconscious needs are expressed. Repressed feelings. Jealousy and sexual energy arises. Beware of anger towards your mother, it’ll tell you something about your subconscious issues.
A busy, productive and creative day. Three aspects today, Mercury conjunct Saturn, Mercury sextile Mars and Mars sextile Saturn. Construct something, expend physical energy, you need to spend time working with your hands, writing, any type of art or craftwork or working with wood, metal and stone would be an excellent outlet for this energy. Moon in Leo starting the early afternoon completes the picture to make this a very creative day, good time to work on your hobbies.
4:05am – Mercury-r conjunct Saturn (Sagittarius). Same as last Monday 11/27. Only now Mercury is Retrograde. For sure by now we are all strongly feeling the sober realism this aspect brings. It’s a time of therapy and introspection. With Mercury Retrograde, the introspection is taken to an even greater degree. Aspect makes people cautious, reserved, quiet, talk softly, not loud or crass. Voice (Mercury) is reserved, stoic, focused on self-preservation, not interested in frivolity or useless banter, serious tone, a bit pessimistic, hard to think beyond conventional viewpoints. Good time for hard, painstaking work, or a meticulous task with attention to detail, seeing a job through to the end. Focus on duty and responsibility, work more efficiently with less oversight, dependable.
However, with Saturn in the last degrees of Sagittarius, some may experience a crisis, a moment when suddenly they become very fearful and demanding, like their world is falling apart and they need to limit everyone and everything around them, like trying to stop the world from spinning. Demanding and authoritative manner. The more you focus on what is going in the outer world with regards to Saturn, the more likely you are to fall into that trap. But the more you focus on your own Saturn, your own structure and how you get a grip on reality, the more you’ll be able to separate yourself from all of that and find your inner voice. I suspect many people are tuning out the media now, as it seems to overwhelm them and has no relevance to what regular folks need to do to survive. And self-preservation (Saturn) is what we are all thinking (Mercury) about nowadays. After all, knowing all about Harvey Weinstein is interesting and salacious, but it doesn’t pay the bills, it’s not what makes us happy in the long run.
This aspect colors the entire Mercury Retrograde period. So it’s been a quiet time internally for us, despite the crashing sounds comings fall of the Tower of Babel going on outside. The news media is sailing over a cliff, but we are going through a cathartic process of letting go of ideas and opinions that no longer serve our best interests in the long run.
The accompanying aspects really help to bring out the best side of this aspect.
4:17am – Moon (Cancer) square Uranus (Aries) Feeling a bit restless early Wednesday morning, interested in the odd or unusual, looking for a change of pace, uneasy on the stomach.
7:58am – Mercury-r (Sagittarius) sextile Mars (Libra) The previous Mercury aspect slows down the mind, but this aspect brings lots of mental (Mercury) energy (Mars) today. Makes it a busy day. You’ll want to stay active towards productive ends. Mars bring mental confidence, mind is sharp able to grasp ideas quickly, lots of quick exchanges. Good for business, lots of transactions. Identify (Mars) with your own opinions (Mercury) and like to persuade others to go along with your ideas. Can be headstrong, but not argumentative, as it’s a sextile and the concurrent Saturn aspects are sure to keep us restrained to a fair degree. Nonetheless, people will be standing up for their beliefs today, so it’s a good day to hold your ground and state your case if needs be.
A strong desire to start a project today, begin building something, but understand that Mercury is Retrograde and Saturn is at the very end of it’s death cycle, so things started now are not meant to last. Now is more the time to use what you have efficiently, create something better using current resources. The strong mental focus we have today makes us very wise, capable of great introspection that is not a usual trait of this aspects, but due to the concurrent Saturn aspects. And we must not forget Mercury Retrograde means it’s a time of introspection. So we have a confluence of energies today that activate and elevate the mind to rise above the ego. An awareness of the interconnectedness of all things comes to you as you are using your hands. My best advice for today is to do craftwork, you will have a spiritual experience.
9:56am – Moon (Cancer) square Mars (Libra). Feeling a bit agitated Wednesday mid-morning, folks are bossy, you need to harness your emotions. Poor digestion, need to eat slowly. Void of Course begins.
12:37pm – Moon enters Leo. We looking to take the stage (Leo) for the next couple of days. Good time for romance and recreation and spending time with your children. Also the best time to attend to your hobbies, which makes it the perfect accompaniment for the planetary aspects today which favor that sort of thing.
1:21pm – Mars (Libra) sextile Saturn (Sagittarius) The energy of Saturn allows the energy of Mars to be released in a slow, sustained manner, enabling Mars to accomplish more, but not all at once, it’s a steady flow of energy that asks you to remain focused on the present moment in order to obtain the benefits. Positive Mars-Saturn aspects are always a good time to build things meant to last a long time. A good time to attend to work that requires patience, persistence and attention to detail, especially if there is some project that will help you obtain more success in the future. We are capable of doing with less than usual, we’re more spartan, efficient and practical.
The ego (Mars) directs our energy towards life-sustaining goals and ideals today, so we are not so egotistical, more reasonable, not susceptible to sudden outbursts, more mature and patient with others. Good aspect for working with wood, metal or stone. This caps off a wonderful set of three complimentary aspects today that make it a great day for creative endeavors, craftwork and anything that gets you to use your hands for productive purposes.
Moon (Leo) aspects make it a creative and care-free day, good time for romance and recreation.
1:01am – Moon (Leo) trine Venus (Sagittarius) Middle of the night, a pleasant and creative time, feelings and emotions in harmony.
9:10am – Moon (Leo) square Jupiter (Scorpio) Thursday morning feeling loud and extravagant, looking to show-off your worth in the world.
3:15pm – Moon (Leo) trine Sun (Sagittarius) Care-free moment when things just seem to fall into place. Creative energy at a high point in this months’ cycle. Good time for social gatherings, people mix easily.
Moon (Leo) brings a fantastic group of aspects today, making a day for play, not work. Lots of creative and physical energy, inspiration, lust for life.
6:13am – Moon (Leo) trine Uranus (Aries) Shining bright on your own Friday morning, creative and confident, lots of new ideas.
9:20am – Moon (Leo) trine Mercury-r (Sagittarius) Feeling proud and inspired mid-morning, communication flows smoothly.
12:50pm – Moon (Leo) trine Saturn (Sagittarius) Looking to put our creative potential to work, show the world what we can do when we’re focused on important matters.
2:40pm – Moon (Leo) sextile Mars (Libra). Folks looking to get out of work early on Friday afternoon. Lots of physical energy, good time for exercise. Proud and confident. Relationship opportunities arise. Good time for social gatherings. Void of Course begins.
3:09pm – Moon enters Virgo. We are more helpful for the next couple of days, more interested in hygiene and proper procedure. Critical, but a good judge of character. Good time for work requiring attention to detail. A bit more challenging these days as it squares four planets in Sagittarius.
Moon (Virgo) has us working overtime around mid-day, but it’s a good time for business in the afternoon, which leads into the evening when Mercury trine Uranus, happening early Sunday morning, is most strongly in effect, brings mental stimulation, ambition, surprise encounters, lots of transactions, should be a popular time for shopping this evening and tomorrow. Also Mars enters Scorpio today.
1:00am – Mars enters Scorpio. Until January 27. Mars once ruled Scorpio before Pluto was discovered. Pluto is the higher vibration of Mars, like Neptune is to Venus and Uranus is to Mercury. So you could say that Mars enjoys being in Scorpio. Scorpio likes to premeditate, like a criminal, so Mars in Scorpio likes to think about what they are going to do before they do it, not spontaneous. So this kind of fits the mood we already have going this month with Mercury retrograde already making us introspective, add to that a criminal mind, looking to investigate, strategize, do things in secret. Mars in Scorpio likes to go all the way or not at all, so we’re looking to make a strong commitment this month. Also need to be aware of the dark side of this placement, which is jealousy and desire for revenge. But with a positive focus, you can accomplish a lot this month and you will find that your physical energy (Mars) can regenerate (Scorpio) every day. Good month for physical exercise, yoga, anything to regenerate the body.
9:37am – Moon (Virgo) square Venus (Sagittarius) Not a sociable time as emotional needs conflict with others.
11:29am – Moon (Virgo) opposition Neptune (Pisces) Working overtime with the heart to reach out to others in search of compassion. Leave us open to deception and desire to escape in fantasy, but can also bring out helpfulness towards anyone that crosses your path.
1:50pm – Moon (Virgo) sextile Jupiter (Scorpio) Good time for business. Keen sense for success, pleasant attitude.
11:11pm – Moon (Virgo) trine Pluto (Capricorn) Emotions aligned to bring a change for the better, keen to find opportunity for success.
11:51pm – Moon (Virgo) square Sun (Sagittarius). Last Quarter Moon. Crisis to see if this month’s plans worked out as expected. Inflexible, demanding, creates tension. Virgo to Sagittarius, need to be satisfied with what you have. Being helpful (Virgo) towards others enables you to overcome your personal crisis, helps deflate your ego.
Two aspects for tomorrow happen early in the day, making them in effect on Saturday evening. In particular Mercury trine Uranus. Should make for an exciting Saturday evening, good time to be out and about. I expect stores to be very busy on around this time.
A perfect time to mingle with the crowd. Mercury trine Uranus will get us moving around, interested in new things, open to different people, new experiences. And Venus square Neptune will dissolve our barriers, help us absorb the energy of the spirit of the holidays, and put us in a generous mood. Although Moon (Virgo) aspects give us a couple of challenges mid-morning and early evening. But otherwise a good day to be out and about.
1:30am – Mercury-r (Sagittarius) trine Uranus (Aries). Once again, last time Saturday 11/25. This aspect is strongly in effect on Saturday evening. The trine from Sagittarius to Aries is all about taking some inspiration or ideal (Sagittarius) and incorporating that into your identity (Aries). Today we see ourselves as wise, generous, outgoing (Sagittarius) and want to show that to the world. Also we like to share our ideal with others, enlighten others and be enlightened. A good day to meet new people, we’re more open to the unusual, something different to break up the stagnant energy. Ambitious, a bit restless, looking for stimulation. Could be a sudden change of plans for the better or desire to change direction suddenly on an inspiration. The mind (Mercury) is electric (Uranus), better able to grasp abstract ideas and better able to know what others are thinking, good intuitive skills, good timing, good driving skills.
Today we are looking to get out of the house, travel and do something different. Taking a short trip or even a weekend getaway should be a positive experience, helping to clear out the mind. Aspect is creative (fire trine), and Mercury rules the hands, so it’s a great for any type of creative work. Lots (Sagittarius) of ideas (Mercury) expressed in an unconventional (Uranus) manner, brings out your unique qualities. Writing in particular would be a good outlet for this energy. Good for shopping, lots of unexpected (Uranus) transactions (Mercury), able to find the perfect gift for friend (Uranus).
5:48am – Venus (Sagittarius) square Neptune (Pisces). Also in effect on Saturday evening. This is the 3rd Sunday in a row we are getting strong Pisces energy. Two weeks ago we had Moon in Pisces making lots of aspects, then last Sunday we had Sun square Neptune. This aspect makes us dreamy, delusional, easily absorb the feelings of others, very expansive, desire to reach out and connect socially with everyone, wanting to see only the good side in others and refusal to see the bad side. A crisis to overcome what you don’t see (Sagittarius square Pisces) which expresses itself in a generous, expansive way, not your typical square. Aspect makes it hard to see yourself and others objectively. Seeing the world through rose colored glasses.
The good side of this aspect is that it induces a warm, generous feeling, an idealistic attitude, very forgiving, also makes you lazy, indulgent with a really strong appreciation for art and music. Good aspect for social gatherings, everyone wants to make a connection, Venus in Sagittarius is flirty, adventurous and this aspect really brings that out. Good time to make love, play music, paint, draw, and writing is good therapy nowadays. Seriously, with this aspect, Venus just loves to throw caution to the wind and just can’t say ‘no’ to an exciting new romance. The compassion, abundant warm feelings and forgiving attitude puts everyone in the mood to make love. So that’s a really good side.
The bad side is if you lack warmth in your life, you may feel more melancholy today, not able to trust others, preferring to not share yourself with others, feeling disappointed with yourself. So use this aspect to bring more warmth into your life, there is more opportunity to make a connection at this time, folks are more forgiving and approachable. There is also a willingness to sacrifice (Neptune) yourself for someone else, get used, put up with someone’s psychosis, be a door mat for someone else to step on. The best way to deal with this energy is to lend a helping hand consciously instead of letting the other person decide where you should place your charity and universal (Pisces) goodwill (Sagittarius).
We get some luck today as the accompanying Mercury aspect will add some excitement to the day and alleviate some of the negative side. Venus rules Taurus as well, which our personal possessions, like money, so for sure this aspect will loosen folks up a bit and encourage them to spend money and bring out the generous side in folks. All things considered, it looks to be a very big weekend for Holiday shopping.
Accompanying Moon aspects today:
10:34am – Moon (Virgo) square Mercury (Sagittarius). Unfortunately this is the one aspect today that is not good for shopping. Emotional issues interfere with communication and transactions.
7:02pm – Moon (Virgo) square Saturn (Sagittarius). Emotional needs conflict with obligations, hard to share yourself with others. Do your best with what you have. Eat a warm meal. Void of Course begins.
9:01pm – Moon enters Libra. We are looking for balance and equilibrium in our lives for the next couple of day, more willing to make peace, show our diplomatic side, more interested in your relationship. Greater interest in art and beauty, good time to share with your partner and good time for social gatherings.
That’s all for this weeks’ aspects.
And Astrology seems to be right on the mark with the USA, last Thursday on 11/30, we see that General Flynn plead guilty to charges regarding the Russia probe. On that day, as I mentioned last week, the USA was getting some contentious transits. Sun opposition Ascendant/Uranus, and Mars square Mercury. Descendant is the point of open enemies, so you always need to watch out for opposition. And Mars square to Mercury brings political battles.
Upcoming this week, on Thursday 12/7, Mars square Pluto. A time of fierce power struggles and disagreements. Trump will need to stand tough. It looks like fighting could get tough about mid-week, but after that, later in the week, it looks pretty good.
This week, on 12/8 Venus opposition Ascendant, a very favorable transit, diplomacy is a must. Venus opposition Uranus should not be nearly as contentious, it will be more like the response to last week’s issue. Also note, coming up this Sunday on 12/10, Jupiter trine Sun, a fortuitous time, opportunity for growth.
Look at this transits, we see coming up with week on Saturday 12/9, Sun opposition Uranus. Same transit as the USA recently. And as you can see Mercury, Sun and Venus as all around the opposition to his Sun and Uranus, so he faces a lot of surprises that show him things that he’s missed that could lead to upsetting circumstances. But the concurrent trines to Mars and Ascendant means that he weathers the storm intact. Overall, looking at the outer planets, we seen no major transits for him these days.
Let’s begin with his natal chart. We don’t have his birth time, so we’re not precise on the Moon, but my bet is we’re pretty close here. Jupiter opposition Moon, Saturn and Mercury (Sagittarius) trine his Moon. That’s a lot of Jupiter energy on his Moon, he’s adventurous and likes an abundance of women. Can be too much of a good thing somethings, hard to know your proper boundary, like to write your own rules.
Now his transits. First notice Saturn right on top of his natal Mercury right at the time of the recent Mercury conjunct Saturn, so we can say that his fall is part of the new conservative theme taking over the mainstream media nowadays. And it’s consistent with Saturn in the last degrees of Sagittarius, like so many who don’t escape the Tower of Babel as it’s falling and suffer a spectacular fall.
But more telling for him personaly which highlights his personal extravagence, the recent Mars opposition Uranus aspect seems to have fallen rather close to his natal Moon. This is the set of transits that revealed his character. I’m betting Uranus conjunct Moon was very close.
So two big aspects made strong concurrent transits to his natal chart, nicely bringing together two major influences and showing us the manifestations for both in the same individual.
So it looks like Saturn in Sagittarius strikes again. It’s been interesting to note the transits for the people falling from the Tower of Babel, they’re all having Saturn transits. They’re all part of the authority structure that is being replaced. Simultaneously, in Matt Lauer, we are also now seeing a clear manifestation of Mars opposition Uranus. Uranus in Aries is the time of the spiritual warrior, Mars in Libra encourages women to rise to the occasion and manifest that energy for the women, and Mars opposition a planet in Aries means men face a time of destruction, when egos get shattered.
This week, Mars in Libra makes two final aspects before leaving Libra and entering Scorpio, and my sense is that both these aspects are going to contribute to the over theme of empowering women. Mercury sextile Mars (Libra) will encourage women to speak, give them a stronger (Mars) voice (Mercury). And Mars sextile Saturn will empower women within the existing social construct, inserting assertive (Mars) feminine (Libra) values into the pool of conventional viewpoints (Saturn). This looks to be part of the new paradigm of Uranus in Aries, which now expresses these values at the Mars opposition.
But I can’t help but begin to ask myself, how much of a change are all of these great falls going to bring? Does it really matter if the lies being told to us by the media are told by creeps or by professional types? They’re still liars. Just because these creeps are going down doesn’t mean the lies will stop. During these past 2.5 years of Saturn in it’s death cycle in Sagittarius, authority (Saturn) becomes like Neptune, it wears the cloak of invisibility, we haven’t really been seeing the true authority figures these past few years. So these bozos like Lauer and so many others who fall now, haven’t really been doing anything other than distracting us from the man behind the curtain pulling the strings. That man will come out from behind the curtain soon as Saturn enters Capricorn later this month.
And that’s the way it’s going to be for all of us to a certain extent, a new restructured individual will begin to emerge from everyone later this month. More on that later as I begin to talk about Saturn in Capricorn.
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.
