That is what I think when I look at the current astral mood. I mean, HOLY shit is what we’re dealing with pretty much. A lot of energies that will climax tomorrow (Thursday, “Thanksgiving”). Energies we will still be under during the New Moon.
Keep in mind: it’s a Dark Moon weekend: this indicates the time before a New Moon when things are being brought up to be cleansed, released= space being made for the New. Rest & reflection are essential to survive the tender darkness. If you need a break, a retreat, take it. You need it if you’ve been doing the work of waking up, speaking up, being unapologetically yourself- really anything that takes transformation & vulnerability.
So. Whatever your mission is, whatever your work is, however your perspective is changing or overwhelming the epiphanies are, astrology can help you know what energies you’re working with & how to navigate them. You can clarify your intentions.
The New Moon | 7 degrees Sagittarius
November 29 | 7:18am EDT
It’s not Scorpio season anymore, when it’s easier to hide away seething with our hurts & keeping our bliss secret. Sagittarius is transparent- direct, unashamed, fire that will fight for truth. Scorpio exposed SO much, & now Sagittarius is asking us WHAT DOES IT ALL MEAN & causing us to align our perspectives with our principals & then DO SOMETHING.
Being the last fire sign on the wheel, Sag energy is a wiser wielding of the fire- sometimes burning a lot down at once but also being a bright as fuck light to the world.
Sagittarius questions everything. Even when you don’t want to question. Sag isn’t into facades & comfortability. This energy thrives on the real, on the moment, on the journey. It takes the deep intensity of Scorpio & channels it into energy that moves things along- a focus inspired by the truth|discovery of existence & our role in it.
The Sun conjunct the Moon means that our self|ego is merging with our emotional database, which is why intentions are so potent at this time, because we are aligning ourselves. In Sagittarius, the New Moon is presenting opportunity for expansion, truth, & risk.
What will you prioritize in order to function as the most awake version of yourself?
Square [a tense aspect that indicates a difference you can’t go around, under, above, but must go through]. There is a square to Neptune so there will be some adjustment needed between our personal journey, the role that play in the “big picture”& how that connects us to the Divine.
Point: avoid perspectives soaked in feel-good philosophies that enable us to escape the truth of the work it takes to align our spiritual beliefs with life on this earth.
JUPITER in LIBRA square PLUTO in CAPRICORN
Jupiter is the ruler of Sagittarius- so all that truth|wisdom|perspective energy I talked about above is wrapped up in this big guy. Jupiter is a guru, a preacher, a sharer. In Libra, this manifests in the realm of human relations & values. Jupiter in Libra is doing the enlightening of how our principals (Jupiter) inform our values|relationships (Libra). If this energy is influencing you, you’re kinda being forced to grow out of your comfort zone into an expanded perspective (Jupiter) that may create new relationships with likeminded or upset the “balance” (Libra). Probably both. And I know you know I’m talking about “politics”, but this manifests on an internal level as well.
What do you believe (Jupiter) & how does that translate into how you relate to people|ideas (Libra)?
Square [a tense aspect that indicates a difference you can’t go around, under, above, but must go through]. Pluto is the ruler of Scorpio, god of death & rebirth, the Phoenix in the flames of hell, the underworld, the dark. In Capricorn, Pluto is deconstructing & reconstructing social constructs, patterns, & structures. Being an outer planet, this is a long term process. A slow process.
But since Jupiter is hitting on it right now, it’s super activated (Jupiter only plays big). This huge universal process is being inserted into our personal lives, in one way or another, or many. Our beliefs about people & relationships are being challenged by the exposure of the healing work that needs done in society (Pluto).
What do we do: part of Pluto work is accepting that there is always darkness, & we cannot control everything. Do not let the pain|fear consume you. Make room for other perspectives|people who come from places of pain (including yourself). You will have to compromise comfort for truth.
Allow this paradox|learning curve to inform how you will be a light, how you will contribute to the healing. What change are you committed to, internally & externally (Pluto in Capricorn) for the benefit of all relations (Jupiter in Libra)?
More on Sagittarius & Capricorn for this weekend:
Mercury (communications|information) is meeting up with Saturn (ruler of Capricorn: rules, structures, foundations, work) in Sagittarius. This is fantastic support for speaking up & speaking truth, though it may be hard. Hard questions, hard conversations, hard collisions of perspectives.
What to avoid: complacent versions of your truth, going crazy blowing everybody up with your words, getting too self righteous.
How you can’t go wrong: speaking your truth, being open minded but clear on your non-negotiable principals, being determined but realistic about the work it is to say what needs to be said. You will not always be heard, have the time, or know what you need to know.
As long as you’re committed to learning|expanding|truth, you’re on your path.
Venus in Capricorn (no, we don’t get a Saturn break) is & will be next to Pluto- really bringing the transformation of societal constructs & foundations home. Venus is our values (ruler of Libra), people|places|things we appreciate/want/love. Venus says a lot about what we want to feel good & how we relate to people. So yes, with Venus in Cap making love to Pluto, a lot of that is under evaluation, in the hell fire, being reborn.
It is work. But priceless important rewarding work. If you are willing to put to death that which no longer aligns|serves you. Doing it will automatically transfer into all areas of life, enabling us to expand with more ease. To see more clearly. To love more deeply. To speak wisely. Act righteously. Fight endlessly. Seek truth. You have to know your work, your journey, so you can avoid the overwhelm (it will still happen sometimes) & invest so much more focus & energy into what really matters to you.
