Weekly Summary: NOVEMBER 10 - NOVEMBER 16

"I think of a hero as someone who understands the degree of responsibility that comes with his freedom."

— Bob Dylan

This Tuesday's Taurus Full Moon (5:34 AM PST 19° Taurus/Scorpio) heralds a significant — perhaps even evolutionary — transformation. However, it may not be very easy to recognize the shifts on the ground. Restlessness, waning confidence, or the feeling that we somehow need to take charge may keep us spinning. We need detachment in order to recognize that, in fact, the World does turn without our efforts and the best that we can do is to respond responsibly as we ride through the process (of change). There is truth to be uncovered under the retrograding Mercury in Scorpio — 'more will be revealed'. This Full Moon is conjunct Vesta, increasing our awareness that sacrifice is necessary to achieve our ultimate goals. Painstaking, methodical research is called for but our focus seems to be challenged all week by a myriad of distractions, sensitivities, and generally waning confidence levels. There are two important YOD formations this week set off by the Moon's transits. The first, on Tuesday, can help direct our attention to the need for responsibility in order to maintain our freedom. The second YOD aspect, on Thursday, involves the Moon, Sun, and Pluto. We are likely to feel that, at least on some level, we are facing insurmountable obstacles. Restlessness and irritability may result. Nonetheless, new windows of opportunity will quickly open if we can replace the restlessness with gratitude for what has already been accomplished.

Impulsiveness clouds our judgement early in the day on Sunday. Once the Moon arrives in Taurus and makes a conjunction with Uranus, things seem to fall into place spontaneously — but erratically. Sensitivities lead to a strong inclination to try to take control on Monday. However, we should remember that it is our internal stability that is most important and let go of managing external circumstances. Tuesday morning's Full Moon marks a significant step in the process of transformational change. It is only with broad awareness and detachment that we will recognize the importance of responding responsibly, rather than seeking short term solutions. It is important to stay on the trail of important investigation and review on Wednesday. We should not take sides or seek to assign blame. Rather, we must maintain detached awareness and continue to seek understanding. Heightened optimism and increasing vitality boosts our spirits on Thursday. Nonetheless, impatience and restless dissatisfaction may blind us to important opportunities. Our courage may wane a bit on Friday and we may be tempted to simply give up and walk away if we feel rejection or disappointment. We can take some comfort in the recognition that there will be further review once Mercury turns direct next week (November 20th). Saturday's intuitive flashes don't seem to give us the whole picture and our sensitivities are heightened again. It is still better to take a step back instead of seeking to take charge.

Sunday November 10, 2019

The Moon is VOC until 3:17 PM PST this afternoon. The early part of the day requires extra patience — impulsiveness is only likely to create extra debris to clean up further down the line. Once the Moon arrives in Taurus, the conjunction to Uranus should allow things to fall into place spontaneously, although the process may seem quite unsteady and erratic. We'll do much better by not 'putting our hands in the gears' — let go and ride the process. Tuesday's early morning Full Moon (5:34 AM PST 19° Taurus/Scorpio) and the approaching interior conjunction of Mercury and the Sun will offer plenty of opportunities to find a sense of stability through what may seem today to be a very erratic process.

Monday November 11, 2019

Health sensitivities may complicate things today and lead to further challenges tomorrow. Although things may feel completely out of hand, we will do much better to allow things to work themselves out, rather than trying too hard to manage or control the process. Dig in, hunker down, or find somewhere to lay low'hide and watch' is a much better strategy than trying to step in and 'run the show' here. Building internal confidence is much more important than looking outward and trying to stabilize everything else. Rigidity may continue to cause us difficulty — "Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin".

Tuesday November 12, 2019

This morning's Full Moon (5:34 AM PST 19° Taurus/Scorpio) marks a transformative — even evolutionary — turning point. However, on the mundane level, it's a good time to take a break. Take a few steps back and allow the process to unfold — let go and let God. Whether or not we are recognized for our efforts, we must ask ourselves whether we would rather have the recognition — or the progress. How we answer such questions may well determine how much we are able to enjoy today's atmosphere. Although the Moon is technically VOC following the early morning trine to Pluto, it forms an important YOD with Mars and Jupiter which directs our attention to the understanding that responsibility is crucial to maintaining freedom.

Wednesday November 13, 2019

Today's Gemini Moon, ruled by the retrograding Mercury in Scorpio, directs our focus towards precise research in the search for truth. Today offers valuable tools for a postmortem of sorts — a personal review of the transformational effects of this week's Full Moon. However, it is important that we maintain discretion, balance, and detachment in order to fully grasp the changes and the challenges that are still ahead. This is no time to try to take sides or assign any blame — there is more to be revealed so reveal it!. Dig deep in the search for truth and meaning and allow plenty of room to be surprised by what is found today.

Thursday November 14, 2019

There is broad optimism and energy available today but the Moon's approach to an opposition to Jupiter challenges us to understand the importance of responsibly managing the bounty that is offered today. We may find ourselves somewhat moody, restless, or irritable with the pace of our progress or the pace of the changes that we are seeking to initiate. The Moon forms another YOD today, this time to the Sun and Pluto. When the obstacles seem insurmountable, we can easily forget to be grateful for the progress already made. In fact, patience and detachment will give us room to find new windows of opportunity, while restless dissatisfaction will only blind us to what is being offered.

Friday November 15, 2019

Courage is unsteady and sensitivity is high today. We may be somewhat prone to giving up 'five minutes before the miracle' or tossing out our work without recognizing the true value of what has been made. Faith is crucial and the more that we can 'gaze in wonder' rather than squint with judgement, the better off we'll be today. We may find ourselves suffering from the consequences of irresponsibility or otherwise see our efforts rejected. Nonetheless, we will do better to remain detached and stay focused on the fact that the process is still unfolding. Mercury will turn direct next Wednesday (November 20th) and we will have the opportunity to revisit any disappointments we experience today from a different perspective.

Saturday November 16, 2019

Intuitive flashes seem to feed our sensitivities and it may continue to be difficult to maintain any confidence. We may be especially tempted to go on a people pleasing tour to find some sense of stability — not the best choice! We don't need to buy into today's skepticism and trying to please the demands of others is bound to be a 'Rabbit Hole' that we'll have some trouble emerging from. If we can't find detachment, we'll do better to pull back completely, looking for some place to contemplate in isolation. How ever we respond to this atmosphere, we will do better to remember that stability is always an inner sense and can't be found through trying to control external circumstances. That wisdom is available to us today if we can quiet our minds enough to recognize it.

Today is Thursday November 21, 2019

Weekly Summary: NOVEMBER 17 - NOVEMBER 23

"When you talk, you are only repeating what you already know. But if you listen, you may learn something new."

— Dali Lama

We cover a whole lot of ground this week. The long round of paralyzing uncertainty begins to fade into the background. However, we need to be willing to open the doors to outside input and new ideas in order to make the most of this week's opportunities and begin to establish the kind of tangible stability we're looking for. The shifts are significant. Mars leaves abrasively indecisive Libra for 'determined' Scorpio and the Sun leaves 'controlled' Scorpio for expansive and courageous Sagittarius. As well, Mercury turns direct ruling a Virgo Moon on Wednesday, giving extra power to the important details that Mercury has unearthed during it's retrograde motion in Scorpio. This week's shifts will become much more tangible once we arrive at next week's New Moon (November 26th, 7:05 AM PST 4° Sagittarius), so this is actually of week for getting organized, laying groundwork and resuming our efforts to build coalitions and alliances. A forming Venus-Jupiter conjunction in Sagittarius contributes to a feeling of expansiveness and brings a philosophical attitude that can enhance our enjoyment of this week's shifts which serve to ease the ongoing uncertainty. We may have the feeling that 'the tables have turned'. However, the Venus-Jupiter conjunction can also become the 'fly in the ointment' of this week's powerful shifts. We may miss important opportunities if we only absorb the goodwill and don't actively engage with others to gain the inspiration and guidance that we need in order to make the most of this environment.

We have the chance to disperse any residual doubts and frustrations from last week's Full Moon on Sunday. Once we've had our say, we'll do better to just 'let go' and move on. Our sense of direction is 'fuzzy' on Monday and, although we feel strong determination, we aren't very clear on how to actually 'get there'. Although there may seem to be strong opinions and firmly held positions on Tuesday, there is room for 'de-escalation'. The stubbornness from the last Full Moon begins to break down. Mercury turns direct on Wednesday and the tables turn as we gain a new perspective on the details that have emerged during the retrograde period. We need to source our inspiration through interaction with others on Thursday. The more that we can open up to input, the more productive we will be. On Friday, the best way to get off the fence and make progress is through an open and honest sharing of ideas. We are likely to find more agreement than we have expected. Creativity and inspiration abound on Saturday, further enhanced by a robust give and take of ideas. By taking advantage of Saturday's opportunities, we can lay important groundwork for next week's New Moon.

Sunday November 17, 2019

The Moon squares Mars just after noon today, before going VOC briefly. The Moon's arrival in Leo at 1:56 PM PST brings a significant boost, helping us to give voice to any lingering frustrations, doubts or concerns. Nonetheless, it is important to let go once we've made our points and not become distracted by petty squabbling or underhanded tricks. We're likely to have quite a head of steam remaining from last Tuesday's Full Moon (5:34 AM PST 19° Taurus/Scorpio) and we'll do better to stay focused on solidifying our plans and positions, instead of trying settle old scores.

Monday November 18, 2019

Commitment and determination are quite strong today but we may find ourselves struggling with deciding exactly which route to take to get where we want to go. If we're feeling uncertain, it is likely because we have some sense that the tables are about to turn. — which they are! Mars arrives in Scorpio just before midnight tonight, setting up the standoff opposition with Uranus in Taurus. A strong concern over how we appear to others may also have us paralyzed by uncertainty. Our general sense of direction is a bit 'fuzzy' at best. The temptation to make sharp turns or attempt quick strikes is probably misguided so we'll do better to slow down and avoid any inclination to be reckless or hasty.

Tuesday November 19, 2019

There is some room for compromise and de-escalation today even though many seem to have dug in with firmly held positions. The stubborn determination from the last Full Moon begin to break down following the Moon's square to the Sun this morning. The subsequent VOC Moon this afternoon from 1:10 PM PST until 5:54 PM PST leads to the unraveling of central leadership's effectiveness. Mercury stations direct tomorrow, ruling the Virgo Moon, which may keep us too focused on the details, especially because there are important revelations to be found in those details. Nonetheless, we should not miss the 'forest for the trees' and ignore the shifts happening in the broader landscape.

Wednesday November 20, 2019

MERCURY TURNS DIRECT today in a very potent position to open wide the doors to clear information through a deep examination of details and specifics. The Moon approaches trines to Saturn and Pluto and carries the light from a midnight trine to Uranus, highlighting our determination and planning. Superior intellect and deep understanding begin to shine through whatever confusion and uncertainty we have been feeling over the past few months. Although our focus is rightly on the details, we should not entirely forget the Big Picture and the overall landscape. By the time we reach next Tuesday's New Moon (7:05 AM PST 4° Sagittarius), the Big Picture will be front and center in our minds as we attempt to make decisions and come to conclusions.

Thursday November 21, 2019

Perhaps the most significant shift in the atmosphere is found in the importance of accepting input and stimulation from outside sources. With Mars, Mercury and the Sun still in Scorpio, we may have a hard time opening up to such input. The Sun will move into Sagittarius tomorrow, which will help us begin to open the door to new ideas. But our inclination today may be to refuse to listen to those ideas — which will only result in missed opportunities. We are likely to struggle with some of the basic Scorpio tendency towards self-sufficient self-direction and only feel frustration if we can't overcome the skepticism and paranoia. We'll do better to trust that the Universe is sending us the messages that we need to hear in order to keep making progress.

Friday November 22, 2019

The Sun's arrival in Sagittarius today opens the doors — ready or not. Today's Libra Moon and the forming Venus-Jupiter conjunction (which completes early Sunday morning) lead us to look for interaction and the sharing of ideas. We need to talk things through in order to 'get off the fence' make decisions and take direct action. In truth, there is less on the table to be decided than we may actually believe. But it is only by inviting input and looking for consensus that we can understand what is actually left to be decided. There is likely to be more agreement and cooperation than we had realized. The resulting optimism from such recognition will serve to encourage further progress.

Saturday November 23, 2019

The depth and breadth of creativity and inspiration cannot be overstated here but we should not ignore the potential for jealousy and missed opportunities. If we can catch the wave from the Sun's trine to Chiron and stay open to the nourishing give and take of ideas, we will find remarkable opportunities for opening doors to productive cooperation and exciting new ideas. Remarkably, it seems that all elements are in place today which will make next Tuesday's New Moon (7:05 AM PST 4° Sagittarius) a truly powerful turnaround. Uncertainty finally begins to slip into the background, taking a back seat to potent cooperative effort and powerful Big Picture vision aimed at transformative action.

Weekly Summary: NOVEMBER 24 - NOVEMBER 30

"If you know the enemy and know yourself, your victory will not stand in doubt; if you know Heaven and know Earth, you may make your victory complete."

— Sun Tzu, The Art of War

This week challenges us to focus on finding our internal sense of direction and stability. We gain only a few clues from Tuesday's potent New Moon (7:05 AM PST 4° Sagittarius) of how to navigate towards a more safe and secure position. In fact, the New Moon's quincunx to Uranus suggests that we are turning a 'blind corner' which may obscure the significant effort that will be demanded. Faith is required (along with an internal navigation system) in order to take advantage of the newly forming stability in the atmosphere. Neptune stations direct, providing the promise of increased faith, inspiration, creativity — but also a 'fuzzy' sense of direction and an increasingly foggy atmosphere. We may take some solace in a feeling of camaraderie and group efforts of various kinds. However, there are some dips in the road and discouragement is a significant factor when the demands seem to become oppressive. However, by focusing on collaboration and 'group efforts' — something larger than ourselves — discouragement fades. We find ways to hold tightly to optimism despite the developing challenges and demands indicated by Jupiter's arrival in Capricorn next Monday. We seem to have an aversion to any overt suggestions that we should 'hunker down for a long haul'. Even so, we seem to be gently guided towards doing just that through a growing interest in working collaboratively within a larger group towards a greater purpose of some kind.

Sunday's Mars-Uranus opposition serves to engender a broadening humanitarian focus. Our efforts are deeply foundational. A VOC and 'dark Moon' on Monday brings some edgy emotions with few outlets. However, Tuesday's New Moon has us turning the corner on uncertainty. We may only feel a subtle indication that the change has occurred but the effects will quickly become apparent. Wednesday brings some discouragement and/or a feeling of being 'lost at sea without a compass' Trying to conform or please others is especially discouraging. Despite the growing awareness of upcoming demands and challenges, we hold tightly to optimism on Thursday. The Venus-Uranus trine provides broad freedom for individual expression. Camaraderie and group effort is our salvation on Friday, helping us to bridge the chasm between determined optimism and the increasing demand for responsibility. Unlimited possibility permeates the atmosphere on Saturday. However, we should not settle for superficial agreement — authenticity is paramount.

Sunday November 24, 2019

Actions speak much louder than words today. The Mars-Uranus opposition culminates with powerful insights and remarkably stabilizing humanitarian motivations. Today's actions are likely to only be foundational but the increased levels of activity are exhilarating and seem to offer significant purpose and meaning — at least we're not just spinning our wheels. Elements of brinkmanship are also on display here. We're looking for just enough to keep going as we try to close the gap between entrenched doubt and hopeful new directions. There is little interest in stocking up supplies for a long haul — just enough for today.

Monday November 25, 2019

Although we may begin the day with a feeling of strength, we will need to let it go and allow the questions and challenges to gently roll while staying focused on a broader perspective. The Moon goes VOC this morning at 9:04 AM PST. Emotions are on edge, ahead of tomorrow morning's New Moon (7:05 AM PST 4° Sagittarius). Faith is needed if we have any hope of carrying yesterday's foundational activity forward into a new round initiated by the New Moon. There may be a number of rash proposals to sort through, born out of frustration and a lack of control. The blind corner we're turning is particularly unnerving today.

Tuesday November 26, 2019

Wisdom emerges quietly out of this morning's New Moon (7:05 AM PST 4° Sagittarius). There may only be a slight awareness of the potential here and there could be some temptation to use subtle manipulation and clever intrigues to take advantage of the moment. However, such tricks are unlikely to succeed. By next Monday, Jupiter will arrive in Capricorn and begin to deliver the tangible promise of stability that is only hinted at today. Rather than seeking quick gains, today's power is found by taking the time to survey the entire landscape — patience is far more effective than cleverness here. The New Moon's quincunx to Uranus indicates a blind corner, obscuring the level of effort that will actually be required.

Wednesday November 27, 2019

Neptune stations direct today in an atmosphere that is fraught with some kind of oppressive discouragement. Attempts at conformity seem especially discouraging and any previous attempts to please others seems to leave us 'lost at sea without a compass'. Nonetheless, today's discouragement is most likely to arise from an especially 'fuzzy' sense of direction — our internal sense of direction is challenged. Patience and persistence are required in order to maintain balance today. It is likely that the heavy load we may feel today can be effectively shifted by small adjustments of perspective. In fact, it is likely that today's questions will provoke important breakthroughs if we can stay with the process.

Thursday November 28, 2019

Jupiter sits on the cusp of entering conservative Capricorn but we are more inclined to hold on tightly to the more expansive view of Sagittarius today — hoping for a lucky break, rather than digging in for a long haul. Any demand for sacrifice seems especially onerous and weighty today even if it has been fully anticipated. Venus makes a welcome trine to Uranus, which opens the door to plenty of freedom for an easy give and take of ideas. Nonetheless, today's superficial optimism is likely to be only a temporary — but entirely welcome — reprieve from the building demand for responsible progress.

Friday November 29, 2019

The notion of "hunkering down for the long haul" is softened today by a hopeful note of camaraderie. We begin to feel the promise of group effort. The idea that 'we're all in this together' begins to soften the psychological impact of the strict demand for responsibility and accountability that is beginning to roll into our awareness as Jupiter approaches Capricorn. There are powerful themes of 'each one teach one' and a deep understanding of "Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me." — Mathew 25. The Moon goes VOC this evening at 7:56 PM PST.

Saturday November 30, 2019

The promise of this week's New Moon, which may have only been felt subtly, begins to take shape today. Unlimited possibilities are felt in some way, perhaps through creative inspiration or powerful rhetoric. The Moon arrives in Aquarius at 12:13 PM PST this afternoon, bolstering the blossoming sense of humanitarian 'group effort' and empowering efforts to find the 'greater good for the greatest number'. Today's Moon-Chiron sextile and subsequent square to Uranus provides the compassionate willingness to allow for a broad spectrum of individual views and approaches. Underneath the acceptance is a powerful organizational capacity that seeks to provide meaningful outlets for widely disparate viewpoints. However, we should not disregard the significant distaste for superficial goals or papered over disagreements. Authenticity is paramount.
