11/01/21 – 12:05 am – accelerating Moon opposite retrograde Neptune

It is All Hallows Eve and if you want to try to connect with a deceased relative or friend, this first aspect of November should support whatever ritual you perform.  Be sure to note any dreams, messages, insights, feelings, or impressions you have.

In less than seven hours, as many people are starting their day, the Moon will make a waning trine to Pluto to set the day’s energy into motion.  This waning, consolidating, aspect involving Pluto, Lord of the Underworld, would also seem to support your efforts to connect with the other side.  Continue to note any dreams, insights, feelings, or impressions you may have during the day.  With waning aspects today, you may want to focus on older work in progress that needs to get completed.

 

11/01/21 – 10:00 am – accelerating Moon goes Void-of-Course

Following a waning third quarter crisis of consciousness square to Venus, the Moon goes void-of-course for over six hours.  This can be a time for reorienting yourself and whatever you may be working on.  Consider how best can you finish whatever you are working on?

 

11/01/21 – 4:11 pm – fast Moon enters Libra

With the Moon’s return to other-oriented Libra, you may want to consider who needs your help or who might be able to assist you with something you are working on.

 

11/02/21 – 2:39 am – Mercury square Pluto

Because of their retrogrades, this is the third waning third-quarter crisis of consciousness square between this pair.  Their first was September 22, 2021, when Mercury was direct and in their Shadow and Pluto was retrograde.  Their second was October 1, 2021, when both were retrograde.  What was happening in your world during those dates?  Has it been resolved or are there still issues or aspects to deal with?  These three aspects should all relate to some aspect of a common “story.”  Two hours later the Moon will make a waning trine to Saturn.  Did something wake you?  Note it and all details you can recall.  Whenever somethings wakes you in the night, you should make note of it, even if it is “just” a barking dog or loud car.  Note the time as well.  There are no small details.

 

11/02/21 – 6:08 pm – Mercury leaves their Shadow

Finally, after eight weeks, we should be able to say, “the Mercury retrograde is over!”  However, if you have unfinished business from this last retrograde, it may not be over for you.

 

11/03/21 – 6:08 am – fast Moon trine Jupiter

This waning trine is the first of five exact aspects by the Moon today.  Break out the tissue and prepare yourself for a rollercoaster ride as some people’s moods may fluctuate and seem to “change on a dime.”  It is Wednesday, Hump Day, and with waning aspects the order of the day, it is probably best if you focus on those things that need to get finished today, this week, and this month.

Following this, the Moon will make a waning third quarter crisis of consciousness square to Pluto for the second exact aspect of the day.  Time to step back and take a fresh look at what you are working on.  Have you been following the instructions and any special requirements?  Double-check to make sure you haven’t overlooked anything.

 

11/03/21 – 12:27 pm – fast Moon conjunct Mercury

This is the third exact aspect of the day.  Conjunctions symbolize new beginnings and this one is no exception for after this, Mercury goes void-of-course for about 51 hours.  Void-of-Course Mercury can behave much like they were retrograde.  Choose your words carefully.  Reread, recheck, rethink before sending communications or committing to something.

 

11/03/21 – 3:32 pm – fast Moon sextile Venus

Following this waning sextile, the fourth exact aspect of the day, both the Moon and Venus go void-of-course.  The Moon’s will last just over two hours while Venus’ will last about 36 hours.  It is probably best if you set aside any “new” things until after the Moon enters Scorpio later this afternoon.  With Venus and Mercury both void-of-course now, avoid signing any long-term contracts or making any expensive purchases.  With Venus void-of-course, you should also avoid starting a new relationship or making a long-term commitment with any existing relationship.  If you are considering proposing, you may want to wait until Friday after Venus enters Sagittarius.

 

11/03/21 – 5:52 pm – fast Moon enters Scorpio

Did you feel the shift as the Moon moved from cardinal air, other-oriented Libra into fixed water, I won’t forget, Scorpio?  It is OK if you didn’t, most won’t.  Emotions and reactions shift from working with others to what did others do to me, you, them?  Scorpios often get an overly negative reputation.  They just have the ability to do the things others only think about or wish they could do.  Be kind to others.  A random act of kindness, even just a smile or holding the door for a stranger can go a long way to making someone’s day.  Smile, even if you are wearing a mask, they will see it in your eyes.

 

11/03/21 – 10:55 pm – fast Moon conjunct Mars

The good news it is late, bedtime for most, so this potentially hyper aspect may not have the impact it might otherwise.  If you are considering starting something, this aspect may give you just the shot of adrenalin you need to get it started.

 

11/04/21 – 5:46 am – fast Moon square Saturn

This is the waning third quarter crisis of consciousness square in their cycle.  It would seem to be suggesting that there may be some things that you have overlooked in whatever you are doing.  Recheck the fine print.  Reread the instructions.  Review the plans.  Have you relied too much on how you have done things in the past?  Saturn expects you to learn from experience and to change and adapt for that is the way of life.

 

11/04/21 – 2:15 pm – fast Scorpio New Moon conjunct Sun

This New Moon is at 12 Scorpio 40’, almost exactly opposite retrograde Uranus.  Conjunctions symbolize new beginnings.  The Sabian symbol for this degree is “An inventor, inventing.”  Allow Uranus’ unpredictability and uniqueness to flow through you freely.  This New Moon may be just the energetic inspiration needed to create that next innovative “thing,” piece of art, or writing.  Don’t bind yourself to old ways of thinking or doing.  Time to step out of your box.

 

11/04/21 – 2:26 pm – fast Moon opposite retrograde Uranus

This opposition and the following one by the Sun are here to provide the energy you need to be inspired.  It is up to you to take advantage of it.

 

11/04/21 – 4:58 pm – Sun opposite retrograde Uranus

This is the third aspect involving the Sun, Moon, and Uranus.  Step out of your box.  Remember what you dreamed you would do when you were a child?  Why haven’t you done it?  Just as we are often our own worst enemy, we can also be our own best friend and inspiration.  Give yourself a “pat on the back,” you deserve it.

 

11/05/21 – 2:53 am – fast Moon trine Neptune

This is the waning trine in their cycle.  This is the time to step back and see the whole picture.  You need not do everything by yourself.  When possible, seek the assistance of a trusted co-worker, friend, or relative.  Be open to any dreams, insights, feelings, or other sensations.  Everything means something.  It is up to you to find your meaning.

 

11/05/21 – 3:55 am- Venus enters Capricorn

The Venus void-of-course is over.  It’s Friday morning.  Did you note any dreams, feelings, insights you may have had in the night?  It is Friday and if you have plans for tonight, put your best foot forward.  Be an attentive listener.  Be polite.  Be aware of your surroundings for it will be a dark night as there is no Moon.

 

11/05/21 – 6:33 am – fast Moon square Jupiter

This waning third quarter crisis of consciousness square sets the energy tone for this Friday.  While normally expansive, Jupiter when involved in a waning aspect, maybe more about focusing the energy to get things done.  What do you need to finish today?

 

11/05/21 – 9:10 am – fast Moon goes Void-of-Course

Following a waning sextile to Pluto, the Moon goes void-of-course for almost 8 hours.  This serves as a reminder to focus on work in progress and to set aside any new items for later if you can.

 

11/05/21 – 3:35 pm – Mercury enters Scorpio

With Mercury’s entrance into fixed water Scorpio, their void-of-course is over.  People’s tones may begin to shift.  Tongues may seem sharper and minds more focused on perceived past injuries.  While Mercury isn’t retrograde, during this transit you might want to act “as if,” to avoid saying something that may come back to haunt you.

 

11/05/21 – 5:52 pm – fast Moon enters Sagittarius

The Moon’s void of course is over.  If you have any “new things” to get started, you should be good to go now.  If you are going out tonight, keep in mind that there will be no Moon so it will be dark.  Follow your rules and avoid impulsive choices.

 

11/06/21 – 5:46 am – fast Moon sextile Saturn

This is the waxing sextile in their cycle.  Time to put to use those things you have learned during this cycle or while working on whatever you have been working on.

 

11/06/21 – 7:00 am – Venus maximum Out-of-Bounds

Venus is at 1 Capricorn 05’ and is now 27 degrees 14’ 27”, out-of-bounds South, which is as far as She will get.  If you have been noticing Her, She is the evening star setting in the west southwest, a little bit farther to the south each evening.  If you check Her out in the days ahead, you will start to notice that She is setting slightly more to the west.  When out-of-bounds planets tend to behave or misbehave in extreme or unorthodox ways.  Being out-of-bounds south, She may have brought up things from your past.  It could be an old love, an object that you desired, or perhaps something you thought lost forever.

 

11/06/21 – 8:59 am – Mercury sextile Venus

Mercury and Venus can only make two major aspects, a conjunction, and a sextile.  With Mercury the faster planet, this would be the waning sextile in their cycle.  This cycle began with their triple conjunctions between February and May 2021.  What was going on in your life around that time?  Waning sextiles symbolize a time for putting to use lessons learned or things created in preparation for a new beginning.  Their next cycle will start with their conjunction on December 29, 2021.  Time to start getting ready.

 

11/06/21 – 3:37 pm – Moon Wobble Begins … Maybe

With the Sun at 14 Scorpio 44’, it is now 17 degrees from the South Node which is at 1 Sagittarius 44’.  Moon Wobble is a time of increased chaos, violence, and natural disaster in the world.  This is generally reflected on a large scale geographically involving natural disasters or mass transit accidents.  Be vigilant.  Pay attention to your surroundings.  Listen to your intuition and feelings.

 

11/07/21 – 1:47 am – fast Moon square retrograde Neptune

This is the waning third quarter crisis of consciousness square in their cycle.  This symbolizes a time to reorient oneself, to accept the new, and let go of or modify the old.  What is working for you and what isn’t?

 

11/07/21 – 5:44 am – fast Moon goes Void-of-Course

Following a waning sextile to Jupiter, the Moon will go void-of-course for over 11 1/2 hours.  This looks to be a good day to focus on projects that you have started.  Perhaps your fall cleaning or a renovation or remodel.  Set aside any new things that come along for later, after the Moon enters Capricorn or perhaps tomorrow or next weekend.

 

11/07/21 – 5:03 pm – fast Moon enters Capricorn

With the Moon now in cardinal earth, business-oriented Capricorn, you might want to get down to business and plan your week ahead.  Or perhaps you would prefer to work on your budget for the upcoming holidays or take the evening off and just chill.

 

11/07/21 – 9:19 pm – fast Moon conjunct Venus

This joining of the two grand ladies of the zodiac takes place at 2 Capricorn 36’.  The Sabian Symbol for this degree is “The human soul receptive to growth and understanding.”  How do you plan on taking advantage of this energy?  How have you grown?  What have you learned?  It is your choice.

 

11/07/21 – 11:13 pm – fast Moon sextile Mercury

This waxing sextile may be setting the tone for next week as we shift from predominantly waning contracting aspects to waxing, expanding aspects.  Your focus may be on newer things, things that need to be expanded, pushed forward and developed to their full potential. 

 

11/07/21 – 9:19 pm – fast Moon conjunct Venus

This joining of the two grand ladies of the zodiac takes place at 2 Capricorn 36’.  The Sabian Symbol for this degree is “The human soul receptive to growth and understanding.”  How do you plan on taking advantage of this energy?  How have you grown?  What have you learned?  It is your choice.

 

11/07/21 – 11:13 pm – fast Moon sextile Mercury

This waxing sextile may be setting the tone for next week as we shift from predominantly waning contracting aspects to waxing, expanding aspects.  Your focus may be on newer things, things that need to be expanded, pushed forward and developed to their full potential. 

11/08/21 – 2:49 am – fast Moon sextile Mars

This waxing sextile should set the tone, at least for this morning.  You may want to focus on newer work to best take advantage of it.  Push forward, expand, grow now, for this afternoon the energy may shift.

 

11/08/21 – 1:48 pm – fast Moon trine retrograde Uranus

This is their waning trine.  Like a sculptor chipping at a marble slab, take a step back from your work.  What unique, individual way might you try to make it better or get it finished?  What if any part is not needed or doesn’t add value to it?

 

11/08/21 – 9:06 pm – fast Moon sextile Sun

This is the waxing sextile in the current cycle of the two luminaries.  Waxing aspects symbolize a new time for expanding and taking action on the newer items in your work in progress.  You might want to use this time to reflect on your work for tomorrow and the rest of the week or month.

 

11/09/21 – 3:01 am – fast Moon sextile retrograde Neptune

This is the waning sextile in their cycle.  This is the time to put the finishing touches on those things that are ready and to begin preparing for the new cycle which begins in four days.

 

11/09/21 – 9:51 am – fast Moon goes Void-of-Course

Following a conjunction with Pluto, the Moon goes void-of-course for over nine hours.  This might be a day to do some real soul searching.  Is your life fulfilling?  Does it enrich you?  Are you happy?  If the answer to any of these is NO, consider why and what do you need to do to make the answer YES!  With the Moon void-of-course for most of the normal workday, it might be best if you focused on your work in progress and set aside any new tasks that come up until tomorrow.  If you must deal with a new issue or task, do so deliberately and cautiously.  Haste makes waste.

 

11/09/21 – 7:03 pm – fast Moon enters Aquarius

With the Moon now in fixed air Aquarius, many may find their minds seeming to be clearer and better able to focus.  If you are feeling this, best take advantage of it now for by Friday morning, the Moon will be in Pisces and shift happens.

 

11/10/21 – 4:55 am – decelerating Moon returns In Bounds

The Moon is at 5 Aquarius 44’ 11” when She returns in bounds.  Some may feel a sense of relief as things return to some semblance of normalcy.  Things should feel less hectic, less chaotic, or beyond your control.

 

11/10/21 – 4:57 am – Mercury conjunct Mars

This is the first of seven exact aspects today, four of them by the Moon two involve Mercury, and two involve Mars.  Watch your tongue.  Choose your words thoughtfully.  Avoid arguments, disagreements, or interrupting people.  With this aspect, there is an increased chance that your words might be misunderstood or misinterpreted.

 

Following this, the Moon will make waxing first quarter crisis of action squares to Mars and then another to Mercury.  The Moon will then conjunct Saturn for the second, third, and fourth exact aspects of the day.  The energy of these aspects supports starting new projects and working on newer projects that have already been started, at least to start your day.  Be sure you understand what is expected of you before you commit or any special instructions or deadlines.

 

11/10/21 – 9:04 am – Mercury square Saturn

This is the waning third quarter crisis of consciousness square in their cycle and the fifth exact aspect today.  This aspect and the next one involving Mars suggest you may want to shift your focus to things that need to get finished for the rest of the morning and the afternoon.  When writing or speaking, only the truth will do.  If you can’t tell the truth it may be best if you say nothing.

 

11/10/21 – 3:14 pm – Mars square Saturn

This waning third quarter crisis of consciousness square is the sixth exact aspect of the day.  Mars may provide the impulse to finish things, but Saturn won’t let you cut corners or take shortcuts.  Everything “by the book.”

 

11/10/21 -4:45 pm – decelerating Moon square retrograde Uranus

This is another waning third quarter crisis of consciousness square.  It is the seventh and final exact aspect of the day.  Are you open to inspirations and out-of-the-box ideas?  You should be, there is no telling where they might come from.  They might come from a sign, a song, or even a cloud formation.  Keep your feet on the ground and your mind open to the You-niverse.

 

11/11/21 – 4:46 am – average Moon square Sun

This is the waxing first quarter crisis of action square in their cycle.  The first quarter square symbolizes a time to act.  The Moon will be going void-of-course in about seven hours so if you have any new “things” to get started, you might want to start there. 

 

11/11/21 – 11:52 am – average Moon goes Void-of-Course

Following a conjunction with Jupiter, the Moon goes void-of-course for 12 hours.  That is pretty much the rest of the day.  Shift your focus from new things to work in progress.  It is Thursday so if you have things that you need to finish this week, best get to them.  Otherwise, you might want to start with the oldest things or those things that have the most urgent deadline.  You know what you have to do.

 

11/11/21 – 11:54 pm – average Moon enters Pisces

As the Moon moves into mutable water Pisces, it may seem as if some people are wearing their feelings on their sleeves, emotions may run high, fast, or even erratic.  It is a transit so this too shall pass.  Be there for your friends and family and they will be there for you.

 

11/12/21 – 8:24 am – Sun trine retrograde Neptune

This waning trine is the first of five exact aspects today, the other four are all by the Moon.  This could be another potentially emotional, roller-coaster kind of day so keep the tissue close at hand.  You might even need them for yourself.  Waning aspects suggest a time to consolidate, pare down and get things finished.  Followed by waxing aspects, you may find the energy shifting to new or newer work that needs to move forward.

 

Following this, the Moon will make a waxing sextile to Venus, then waxing trines to Mars and Mercury for the second, third, and fourth exact aspects of the day.  This aspect suggests it is time to pause and review how the actions you took at the first quarter square are going and to make any necessary adjustments.

 

11/12/21 – 10:44 pm – average Moon sextile retrograde Uranus

This waning sextile is the fifth and final exact aspect of the day.  If you go out tonight, beware of the potential for Neptune to try and confuse you or “fog” your vision.  You may want to take some time to review your day and what you accomplished and what you need to work on tomorrow, be it at home or at work.

 

11/13/21 – 7:57 am – Mercury opposite retrograde Uranus

Anyone a writer?  This first thing Saturday morning aspect could provide you with some inspiration to get you past any writer’s block.  Or perhaps just to clear your mind for the day ahead.

 

11/13/21 – 1:46 pm – slowing Moon conjunct retrograde Neptune

Thus begins their new cycle.  Is there a dream you have been trying to manifest or some belief you have been questioning or exploring?  This new cycle may be just the thing you have been waiting for.

 

11/13/21 – 9:40 pm – slowing Moon goes Void-of-Course

Following a waxing sextile to Pluto, the Moon goes void-of-course for 10 hours.  It is Saturday night.  Best that you stick with your plans and with whoever you are out with.

 

11/14/21 – 7:48 am – slowing Moon enters Aries

It is Sunday morning and here we go again, as the Moon is slowing down She makes Her way into impulsive Aries.  This combination could lead to some frustration as the impulse or desire to “just do something,” is thwarted by the slowing Moon becoming more methodical.

 

11/14/21 – 10:59 pm – slow Moon sextile Saturn

This is the waxing sextile in their cycle.  If you aren’t going to sleep, you might want to take a few minutes to review your schedule for the coming week.  Saturn will expect you to stick to your schedule and follow all rules and instructions. 

 

11/15-21/21 – A Peek at the Week Ahead

Monday the Sun makes a waning third quarter crisis of consciousness square to Jupiter then on Tuesday, the Moon goes void-of-course for most of the normal workday.  Wednesday Mars will oppose retrograde Uranus as the first of five exact aspects and then Venus will enter Her Shadow (yes, there is a Venus retrograde coming up in December).  Thursday gives us six exact aspects, Friday the Sun goes void-of-course, and then on Sunday, Mercury will go void-of-course and the Sun will enter Sagittarius.

 

11/15/21 – 1:06 AM – slow Moon square Venus

This is the waxing first quarter crisis of action square.  With the Moon in cardinal fire Aries and Venus in cardinal earth Capricorn, you may want to plan on “hitting the ground running” to start your week.  Focus on newer tasks for the morning as the energy may shift at noon.

 

11/15/21 – 11:58 am – Sun square Jupiter

This is the waning third quarter crisis of consciousness square from the Sun in fixed water Scorpio to Jupiter in fixed air Aquarius.  This signifies a shift in energy from expansive waxing to consolidating waning or from newer to older.  For the afternoon, focus on older work that needs to be reviewed, consolidated and completed.

 

11/16/21 – 5:55 am – slow Moon sextile Jupiter

This is the waxing sextile and with a Moon void-of-course coming up in less than two hours, you may want to start your day by focusing on any new “things” you need to get started.  With Jupiter involved you might think “go big or go home,” and you just might be right.  Keep in mind that just because it works for one “thing” doesn’t mean it will work for the next “thing.”

 

11/16/21 – 7:51 am – slow Moon goes Void-of-Course

Following a waxing first quarter crisis of action square to Pluto, the Moon goes void-of-course for over 10 hours.  You should probably set aside any new things that you haven’t started or that come up and wait until after the Moon enters Taurus this evening.  That could mean you may have to put them off until tomorrow, but if you can, it may just turn out to your advantage.  Focus on things you have already started, be they “newer” or “older,” consider your options and then take action.

 

11/16/21 – 1:01 pm – Sun sextile Pluto

This is the waning sextile in their cycle.  This cycle started about ten months ago and the next one will start in about two months, so review and act accordingly.  What needs to get finished?  What can wait?  What should be set aside for another time or should be let go?

 

11/16/21 – 6:18 pm – slow Moon enters Taurus

With the Moon’s return to Her second home, you should be good to go if you have any new “things” that you still need to get started today.  Slow goes well with fixed earth Taurus so the Moon should be happy.  Some people’s thoughts may turn to home improvements or what they can do to make their place their sanctuary.

 

11/17/21 – 9:23 am – Mars opposite retrograde Uranus

This is the first of five exact aspects today, the other four all by the Moon so you may want to keep the tissue handy as anything is “fair game” when energetic God of War Mars and unpredictable Uranus face-off.  Will they be working together for some greater unexpected good or will it be something else?  Be prepared for unexpected surprises, some of which may be unwanted and unwelcome.  Watch out for the other guy as there may be an increase in accidents or confrontations.  Avoid them!

Following this, the Moon will make a waxing first quarter crisis of action square to Saturn for the second exact aspect of the day.  Whatever actions you take, they must follow the rules and be within required standards or you can expect to have to do them over.

 

11/17/21 – 12:50 pm – Venus enters Her Shadow

Venus is at 11 Capricorn 04’ 38” and has entered Her Shadow.  This is the point at which She will change from retrograde to direct on January 29, 2022.  Don’t forget She is also out-of-bounds so areas of love, desire, and money may get even dicier.  Stick to your budget.  Don’t have one?  Make one!.  Venus will make three passes from this point to 26 Capricorn 29’ 25” and back and then forward again before finally entering new territory on March 1, 2022.

 

11/17/21 – 4:39 pm – slow Moon trine Pluto

This waxing trine is the third exact aspect of the day.  Waxing aspects symbolize a time for pushing forward.  The trine, coming after the first quarter crisis of action square suggests taking a moment to review how any actions you took at that time are going?  Have they gone as planned or do you need to make adjustments? 

Following this, the Moon will conjunct retrograde Uranus for the fourth exact aspect of the day.  This symbolizes the beginning of a new cycle.  With retrograde Uranus involved, you may want to take another look at some things that you have set aside.  New insights or inspiration may come to you this evening or during the night so be alert for them.  Record them for later consideration or reconsideration.

 

11/17/21 – 7:20 pm – slow Moon opposite Mars

This opposition is the fifth and final exact aspect of the day.  With Mars in Scorpio, a sign He once ruled and the Moon in Her second home of Taurus there may be a battle of wills tonight.  It could be with another, or it might just be with yourself.  Avoid impulsive actions.  It is alright to “sleep on it.”  Whatever you do, proceed with caution.

 

11/18/21 – 7:38 am – Mercury trine retrograde Neptune

Yesterday we had five exact aspects, today, this waning trine is the first of six exact aspects, four by the Moon and one by Venus.  This could be a very “personal” kind of day for many.  Best to start your day by focusing on your work in progress and seeing what you might be able to finish.

Following this, the Moon will make a waxing sextile to retrograde Neptune, then oppose Mercury, make a waxing first quarter crisis of action square to Jupiter and finish up with a waxing trine to Pluto for the second, third, fourth, and fifth exact aspects of the day.  These aspects suggest you may want to shift your attention to newer things that need to be developed, pushed forward, or expanded.

 

11/18/21 – 10:08 pm – Venus trine retrograde Uranus

This waning trine is the sixth and final exact aspect of the day.  Wind down.  Take some time for yourself as you reflect on your day, how it went, and what you need to focus on tomorrow.

 

11/19/21 – 12:57 am – slow Full Moon opposite Sun

This Full Moon is most commonly known as the “Beaver Moon,” as the beaver are very active at this time preparing for winter.  To some, it was also known as the “Frost Moon.”  This Full Moon is at 27 Taurus 14’ and is also a partial Lunar Eclipse.  Oppositions symbolize a time for finding a balance or understanding with things that began around the time of the conjunction.  The Full Moon relates back to the most recent New Moon of November 4, but also the last New Moon Solar Eclipse of June 10, 2021, and the New Moon of May 22, 2020, which was close to this degree.  When considering the possible implications of this Full Moon, keep in mind those other dates and what happened around those times.  The Sabian Symbol for this degree is “A mature woman reawakened to romance.”  Note any dreams, first thoughts, feelings, or anything that happens to wake you in the night.  This symbol suggests that you should not give up on your dreams.  Life happens and it is not too late for one or more of your dreams to come true.  If it is about love or romance, perhaps your “soulmate” will come into or back into your life.  You need to allow yourself to be open and to “answer the door when opportunity comes knocking.”

Following this, both the Sun and Moon go void-of-course.  The Moon’s will last 5 1/2 hours while the Sun’s will last about 65 1/2 hours.  If your day starts before the Moon enters Gemini, stick with your routine or whatever you had planned.  With the Sun void-of-course pay close attention to your appearance and demeanor.  You only get one chance to make a first impression.  You may want to pick up that self-help book you started but haven’t finished or you might want to get back into a fitness routine, even if it is just walking or jumping rope at home.  It is best not to start a new fitness or self-help program during this time.  Wait until after the Sun enters Sagittarius.

 

11/19/21 – 6:33 am – slow Moon enters Gemini

With the Moon’s return to Gemini conversations may become more important.  Most everyone needs to interact with other humans on a regular basis.  Be a good listener and you will be thought more highly of.  Avoid conflicts and confrontations, especially tonight.

 

11/19/21 – 11:12 pm – slow Moon trine Saturn

This is the waxing trine in their cycle.  Whatever you want to move forward, plan your actions carefully.  Don’t overlook anything.  Tomorrow is Saturday.  Expect things to shift tomorrow morning as the Moon will be going out-of-bounds North.

 

11/20/21 – 9:25 am – slow Moon goes Out-of-Bounds North

The Moon is at 13 Gemini 13’ 25” when She goes out-of-bounds.  North symbolizes the future, the unknown, that which we are bringing into our lives.  A significant new person, people, or things may come into your life.  Be ready to make a good first impression.  This can also be a good time to work on manifesting that “dream” you’ve been thinking about or working on.

 

11/20/21 – 3:43 pm – Mercury square Jupiter

This waning third quarter crisis of consciousness square is the only exact major aspect today.  It is Saturday, so you may want to get back to work on things around your home that you have started but haven’t finished.  Perhaps get ready for the coming holidays as the first one is only a few days away.  If you go out tonight, beware those who are overly flirtatious or use flattery as a way to get you to let your guard down.  In conversations with friends, family, and significant others, don’t make promises you can’t or most likely won’t keep.  Only agree to those things that you know you can do.

 

11/21/21 – 12:05 am – slow Moon square retrograde Neptune

This is the waxing first quarter crisis of action square.  Pay close attention to any visions, dreams, feelings, and first impressions tonight.  This is also an opportune time to reaffirm your religious and spiritual beliefs or to seek them out.

 

11/21/21 – 1:14 am – Mercury sextile Pluto

Following this waning sextile, Mercury goes void-of-course for about 78 hours.  You may want to treat this time like a short Mercury retrograde without the opportunity for a “do-over.”  Choose your words carefully.  Speak clearly.  Listen closely.  Make sure that you understand what others are saying, and that they understand you.

 

11/21/21 – 7:52 am – slow Moon goes Void-of-Course

Following a waxing trine to Jupiter, the Moon goes void-of-course for about 11 1/2 hours.  It is Sunday and with the Moon void-of-course for most of the day, you may want to give yourself the day off or use it to finish things that you have already started.

 

11/21/21 – 6:34 pm – Sun enters Sagittarius

Did you feel the shift from fixed water, sometimes cold Scorpio into adaptable fiery Sagittarius?  Like a hand torch, adaptable fiery Sagittarius represents a time for “melting the ice,” for adapting to the new and expanding your mind.  What have you been pondering?  Is it a question or quest?  Sagittarius is the optimist of the zodiac, the one who wants to learn and grow as they have fun.  You can do all that if you set your mind to it.

 

11/21/21 – 7:33 pm – slow Moon enters Cancer

With the Moon’s return to Her home sign of Cancer, you may want to take some time to call and talk with those closest to you.  The Moon is moving about as slow as She can so Her stay at home will be almost 3 days.  During this time, many may find themselves reflecting on what and who they care most about and what they can do for them.  Issues at home may also come up, so keep a cool and civil head about you.

 

11/22-28/21 – A Peek at the Week Ahead

The week starts with just one exact major aspect on Monday.  Tuesday provides four exact major aspects by the Moon and finally, on Wednesday the Mercury void-of-course ends as they enter Sagittarius, and the Moon returns in-bounds.  Thursday we find the Moon beginning to shift from waxing to waning aspects.  Friday is another one major aspect day, but that one has the Moon going void-of-course.  Saturday provides the Moon waning third quarter square Sun and then Sunday we wrap up the week with five exact aspects, the last of which is the Sun-Mercury Superior Conjunction.

 

11/22/21 – 7:59 pm – slow Moon sextile retrograde Uranus

This is their waxing sextile, a time to review any new things you have started and make necessary adjustments to keep them moving forward.

 

11/23/21 – 2:49 am – slow Moon opposite Venus

This is a day to be prepared for the possibility of many shifts.  It starts and ends with an opposition, the “full Moon” aspect when one should be taking the time to appreciate their accomplishments and to evaluate where they are.  Are things in balance or is there a tug-of-war going on?  In between, there will be a waning aspect and then a waxing aspect suggesting a need for a shift in emphasis from consolidating and finishing to going back to the newer things, to expanding and pushing forward. 

About 1 1/2 hours later, the Moon will make a waning trine to Mars.  Mars is oriented toward action; in this case, it is about taking action on work that needs to be cleaned up, pared down, or can be completed.  This should take you through the morning.  After lunch you may feel or need to make a shift to newer work, things that need to be nurtured, expanded or pushed forward.

 

11/23/21 – 12:50 pm – slow Moon trine retrograde Neptune

This is their waxing trine suggesting a shift to newer things that are being developed.  With retrograde Neptune involved, you may find it necessary to utilize an old dream or technique to help you push a project forward.  Don’t let yourself be fooled or confused by someone else’s perception of a situation.

 

11/23/21 – 9:46 pm – slow Moon goes Void-of-Course

The day comes full circle with an opposition to Pluto.  Following this, the Moon goes void-of-course for over ten hours.  This could be a good time to reflect on your day and what you have accomplished.  While you shouldn’t start anything new, you might also use the time to consider what you need to do this week and what needs to be completed by the end of the month.

 

11/24/21 – 7:36 am – Mercury enters Sagittarius

The Mercury void-of-course is finally over.  Mercury isn’t happy in mutable fire Sagittarius as it is the sign opposite Gemini, one of the signs Mercury rules.  Sagittarius is optimistic and philosophical.  Here Mercury may try to put on a lighter face.  If you want to be philosophical today, be sure you know what you are talking about.  Don’t try to fake it, you may regret it if you do.

 

11/24/21 – 7:59 am – slow Moon enters Leo

Just three minutes after entering fixed fire Leo, the Moon will make a waning trine to Mercury in mutable fire Sagittarius.  Now is the time to “hold your fiery tongue” and not to provoke or engage in arguments.  Waning aspects are for consolidating and finding ways to get things done.  You may want to stick with the “tried and true,” things that have worked before, at least until you determine that it isn’t working, before trying something new.

 

11/24/21 – 1:34 pm – slow Moon trine Sun

This is another waning trine by the Moon.  Continue to focus on work in progress as you pare it down to the essentials, to what works and adds value to the final product.

 

11/24/21 – 7:28 pm – slow Moon returns In-Bounds

The Moon is at 5 Leo 48’ 25” when She returns in-bounds.  The shift to “contained normalcy” may seem subtle at first but by tomorrow, many will be aware of it.

 

11/25/21 – 12:52 am – slow Moon opposite Saturn

It is Thanksgiving Day morning.  Chances are most will sleep through this.  If something awakens you in the night, record it.  Note what it was that woke you, what you are feeling, what your first thoughts are.  If you have trouble getting back to sleep, like the old song, “count your blessings instead of sheep.”

 

11/25/21 – 7:32 am – slow Moon square retrograde Uranus

This is their waxing first quarter crisis of action square and may set the tone for the day.  Focus on the day and what you can do to make it memorable.  Find people or things in your life to be thankful for.

 

11/25/21 – 7:19 pm – slow Moon square Mars

As the day winds down, the energy shifts as this is their waning third quarter crisis of consciousness square.  If something is weighing on your conscience, use the evening to find a suitable solution.  Perhaps you just need to forgive yourself and let it go.

 

11/26/21 – 8:24 am – accelerating Moon goes Void-of-Course

It is “Black Friday.”  Following an opposition to Jupiter, the Moon goes void-of-course for almost ten hours.  If you are out shopping be sure of what you are buying and what the return policy is.  Keep your receipts in a safe place.  When shopping online, be sure of who you are dealing with.  Beware of scams.  Know who is calling or at the door before answering.  Unfortunately, at this time of the year, the unscrupulous seem to multiply and are everywhere.

 

11/26/21 – 6:12 pm – accelerating Moon enters Virgo

With the Moon’s return to critical, analytical Virgo, keep your wits about you and your “spidey-sense” on high alert if you go out this evening.

 

11/27/21 – 2:27 am – average Moon square Mercury

This is their waning third quarter crisis of consciousness square.  With the Moon in mutable earth Virgo and Mercury in mutable fire Sagittarius, if you must argue a point, do it with yourself, not with family, friends, or strangers.

 

11/27/21 – 4:28 am – average Moon square Sun

This is also their waning third quarter crisis of consciousness square, the second of the morning.  It is Saturday morning.  Some may use the day to focus on “recovering” from Thanksgiving and Black Friday.  Other’s may spend the time looking for more bargains or checking the balance on their credit cards and bank accounts.  Know your limits.  This is not the time to push them.

 

11/27/21 – 4:18 pm – average Moon trine retrograde Uranus

This is their waxing trine.  Having challenges with what to do with leftovers or your finances?  Consider how you have handled this in the past.  There is a good chance that what worked before may work again or perhaps an inspired version of it is what you need.

 

11/28/21 – 5:15 am – average Moon trine Venus

This is the first of five exact aspects today, the first four all by the Moon.  It is the Sunday after Thanksgiving and Black Friday and for some, emotions may be a bit frayed or drained.  This is their waning trine from mutable earth, Virgo, to cardinal earth Capricorn.  Mutable signs are flexible and adaptable while cardinal signs are the let’s do it signs so emotions and feelings may be mixed.  Remember to breathe and give yourself time to think, before acting or responding.

 

Over the next 2 1/2 hours, the Moon will make a waning sextile to Mars and then oppose retrograde Neptune for the second and third exact aspects of the day.  While waning aspects symbolize a time for consolidating and completing, for focusing on work in progress, you may also want to take time to get any “new” things started as the Moon will be going void of course soon.

 

11/28/21 – 4:02 pm – average Moon goes Void-of-Course

Following another waning trine, this time to Pluto, the fourth exact aspect of the day, the Moon goes void-of-course for almost nine hours, which is the rest of the day.  Avoid starting anything new during this time.  If you can, set them aside until tomorrow after the Moon has entered Libra.

 

11/28/21 – 8:39 pm – Mercury Superior Conjunction Sun

The fifth and final exact aspect of the day is their superior conjunction at 7 Sagittarius 10’.  This occurs when Mercury is on the opposite or far side of the Sun from the Earth.  It can be likened to the “Full Moon” phase of the Sun-Mercury cycle.  This energy can be particularly helpful for anyone working on a writing project or one that involves speaking or creative thinking.

 

11/29/21 – 12:55 am – accelerating Moon enters Libra

It is Cyber Monday as the Moon enters cardinal air Libra.  Libra is known as the sign of the “other,” of finding balance or common ground.  As the cardinal air sign, it is at the ready to support whatever you may be working on, especially if it relates to the Mercury Sun superior conjunction.

 

11/29/21 – 6:10 am – Mars trine retrograde Neptune

This is their waning trine and the first of five exact aspects today, three of them by the Moon.  By the way, tomorrow will be another five exact aspect day, which makes three five aspect days in a row to end November.  Some may find themselves feeling drained or pulled in several directions.  Find some “me” time, that is time for yourself, preferably, quiet time to relax and breathe.  With all five aspects waning, today it is best if you focus on what needs to get finished in November.  Then look to what needs to get finished this week which takes us into December. 

Following this, the Moon will make waning sextiles, first to the Sun and then to Mercury following which She will make a waning trine to Saturn for the second, third, and fourth exact aspects of the day.  Don’t cut corners.  Make sure you are following all instructions and that the finished product is what it is supposed to be.

 

11/29/21 – 11:19 pm – Mercury sextile Saturn

This waning sextile is the fifth and final exact aspect of the day.  The truth and only the truth will do.  Just because something is your “truth,” doesn’t mean it is the “truth” or that it will be another’s “truth.”  If you want to discuss what is the “truth,” keep an open mind, be a good listener, and avoid arguments.

 

11/30/21 – 11:56 am – fast Moon square Venus

This waning third quarter crisis of consciousness square is the first of five exact aspects today.  It is another day with all five aspects being waning in nature, so if you have something that still needs to get finished this month, get to it as time is running out.

 

11/30/21 – 12:46 pm – Venus sextile retrograde Neptune

This waning sextile is the second exact aspect of the day.  Maintaining focus could be a challenge as Neptune may try to confuse or fog you in, but the next aspect may help to clear that away and get you back on track.

 

11/30/21 – 3:14 pm – Sun sextile Saturn

This is another waning sextile and the third exact aspect of the day.  If you feel as if you are running on empty, take a break, get some air and sun.  This combination can help you focus on the goals and getting things done. 

About 4 1/2 hours later the Moon will make a waning third quarter crisis of consciousness square to Pluto for the fourth exact aspect of the day.  Don’t forget to take time to review your work and make sure that you have followed all procedures and that it meets any requirements.

 

11/30/21 – 8:20 pm – fast Moon goes Void-of-Course

Following a waning trine to Jupiter; the last exact aspect of November, the Moon goes void-of-course until December or about 7 1/2 hours.  If you still aren’t finished, call on Jupiter’s expansive energy to give you the energy boost you need to finish.  When you are finished, this combination can help you to recharge and then give yourself permission to relax, job well done.

 

 

Looking ahead to December, we note that it starts with waning or contracting energy and the Moon void-of-course.  The first event of December will be the Moon’s entrance into Scorpio after which Neptune will station direct.  The first exact aspect of December doesn’t’ happen until the evening of the 1st, when the Moon makes a waning square to Saturn.  On the 2nd, Mercury goes out-of-bounds south, then on the 3rd, there will be a New Moon Solar Eclipse at 12 Sagittarius 22’.  On the 7th, Venus returns in-bounds.  On the 11th, there will be 7 exact aspects which include Mercury and Mars going void-of-course.  On the 13th, both Mars and Mercury change signs.  On the 19th, Venus stations retrograde followed by the Sun’s entrance into Capricorn on the 21st.  On the 28th, Mercury returns in-bounds.  December will end with Venus and Uranus retrograde and the last exact aspect will be Moon conjunct Mars, symbolizing the beginning of a new cycle.

    Re: your comment on “like kidney stones”, unfortunately not true. My father’s stones were subjected to lithotripsy back in the late 1990s. Maximum 3 treatments were permitted. His stones stood their ground. At least he was not in discomfort.
    I enjoyed this reading otherwise.

    Interesting. Thank for your efforts!

    It’s been a powerful Super Moon (March 9th) so far…also interesting it is so near Venus conjunct Uranus. It feels like really big things are happening on every front.

    Here are the basic astrological details of His Royal Highness, Prince of Cambridge. Weight 8 lbs. 6 oz., according to news reports, the heaviest future King by birth weight in 100 years of more. Correct birth time is July 22, 2013, 4:24 pm, London, England.

    A true “cusper” with Sun 29 Cancer 58. Moon 28 Capricorn 17, which means that HRH was born less than 3 hours before the full Moon at 0 Aquarius. Birth ascendant is 27 Scorpio 10 and his birth M/C is 20 Virgo 36. He was born with 7 of the 10 primary points in Cardinal signs and 6 of them in water signs. He has a Grand Water Trine of Mars 6 Cancer and Jupiter 5 Cancer trining Saturn 5 Scorpio and trining Neptune 5 Pisces. He also has a Cardinal T-square with Mercury 13 Cancer opposing Pluto 9 Capricorn and both squaring Uranus 12 Aries. He has none of the 10 primary points in an Air sign and 3 of them are retrograde. 3 retrogrades is the second most common number, 2 being the most common. Born with Mars out-of-bounds north might he be a rather precocious child, to say the least.

    What a time to be born for the new prince-princess in England!
    Leo sun, Cancer planets: care for the family = the Kingdom, Aquarius Moon- we need open minds in the future!

  7. dane_sullivan@verizon.net' Dane Sullivan says:

    Hey Jim,
    Source: Astronomical Phenomena For the Year 2013, prepared by US Naval Observatory and Her Majesty’s Nautical Almanac which defines lunar eclipse time as Moon reaching centermost point of its journey thorough the shadow cast by the earth, and solar eclipses timed for maximum obscuration — typically different from time of simple conjunction. However, I note the Rosicrucian Ephemeris, citing JPL and the US Naval Observatory call it at 5:21. I’m betting there’s yet another computation out there.

  8. Jim Schultz says:

    Hi Dane, thank you for your comment. Not sure what your source for the eclipse time is. I use Solar Fire 8 for the dates and times I post. The time is based on the exact conjunction of the Sun and Moon which is 5:28 pm PDT. The NASA eclipse site shows a time of 5:26 pm PDT.

  9. dane_sullivan@verizon.net' Dane Sullivan says:

    Probably just an editorial slip, but believe the May 9 eclipse doesn’t happen until 5:55 at 19 Taurus 33. Enjoy your observations!

  11. doratoz@aol.com' Donna says:

    Oh boy! I am not an astrology student, however, I do enjoy reading your article every week. I have picked up the tiniest sliver of what is being discussed and from what I am able to glean, July sounds like it has the potential to be rather challenging. As a Taurus, I was happy to have read about the Mercury retrograde before it happens! I will be carefully watching my “p’s & q’s ” throughout the month and refer back to the entirety of the article – changes are a-comin’ for sure.
    Thanks for your work!
