Saturday, November 14, 2020: The New Moon is at 23 degrees Scorpio with the Sun & Moon sextile Jupiter & Pluto in Capricorn. This is a positive push of energy from those Capricorn planets to move us forward into new territory. What are you most passionate about right now, and how can you use that structured and focused Capricorn energy to move it forward?
Today Mercury is at 5 degrees Scorpio quincunx Chiron at 5 degrees Aries as well. A quincunx requires an adjustment that you cannot see. Mercury in Scorpio is the deeply emotional communication and perception and Chiron in Aries asks you to examine the places where you are not being authentically and fully yourself, perhaps because you don’t feel like it is safe enough or you aren’t good enough. Mercury and Chiron are asking you to adjust your perceptions. How can you allow yourself to be good enough, right now, just as you are?
A New Moon is a wonderful time to set some intentions for what you want in your life moving forward. The most powerful thing to do is write out what you want in the present tense. You state “I am _______. I have _________. I feel __________.” Never phrase it as I want or I need or I don’t want or I don’t have. If you are feeling particularly raw or vulnerable right now, and let’s face it, who isn’t, give yourself some extra love. I recommend looking in the mirror and saying “I love you” several times a day. Even hug yourself if you feel so inclined. Loving yourself is the most powerful thing you can ever do. Don’t feel ashamed or silly.
Sunday, November 15, 2020: Venus in Libra squares both Jupiter and Pluto at 22-23 degrees Capricorn. How is what you value, what you love (Venus) being renovated by the planets in Capricorn (the sign of determination and building long-term structures)? I know everyone’s values have shifted this year. What is really worth valuing? Use this energy to make final shifts that will allow you to build a firm foundation for the coming decade based upon things that you really value, things that you love, desires you have in your heart.
Make a list of what is most valuable to you. Don’t overthink it. This is what is in your heart. Once you have your list, you now have the scaffolding for which you can build this next phase of your life. How can you live your values?
Tuesday, November 17, 2020: Mercury at 8 degrees Scorpio is opposite Uranus at 8 degrees Taurus. This is the third pass for this opposition because Mercury went retrograde on October 13th. The first opposition happened on October 7th and the second opposition happened on October 19th. Mercury in Scorpio deepens how you communicate, what you think about, how you feel about things. Uranus, the higher octave of Mercury, is in Taurus right now, shifting what we value, how we treat the Earth and her resources, how we treat our own bodies and our health. Uranus is bringing in the Higher, Cosmic Wisdom into the areas of Taurus. Once again, what is truly valuable? What is worth your time, attention, and energy (your resources)? How can you bring your values and resources into alignment?
Think back to the the first two weeks in October. What comes up for you? What was on your mind, but seemed like it could not quite get resolution? With Mercury leaving its shadow on Thursday and this being the third and final opposition with Uranus, what can be resolved now? Can you think about something in a different way now? Did you get deep insights into an area of your life that will allow you to move forward in a different way?
Wednesday, November 18, 2020: Sun at 27 degrees Scorpio sextile Saturn at 27 degrees Capricorn. The Sun is nearing the end of its sojourn through Scorpio, and as it is, it is getting a push of energy from Saturn in Capricorn. The Sun in Scorpio encourages us to illuminate the shadows so that we can see there really was nothing there to be afraid of. There was only something within us that needed understanding and love. How can you be more determined to own your worth and your power?
What has been on for you since the Sun entered Scorpio on October 22nd? Has an area of your life that was hidden from you been illuminated? Have you seen something more deeply than you ever have before?
Thursday, November 19, 2020: Mercury at 11 degrees Scorpio leaves its shadow today. What has been going on for you since October 13th? Mercury went back to 25 degrees Libra. Where has Mercury asked you to perceive something more deeply? Where can you bring more of yourself into your relationships, both intimate and everyday encounters with others? How can you move forward in your life with a Higher awareness?
Venus at 27 degrees Libra squares Saturn at 27 degrees Capricorn. With both Jupiter and Saturn exiting Capricorn for Aquarius on December 21st, the heaviness we have been feeling with all of the planetary energies in Capricorn will be lightened considerably as only Pluto will remain in Capricorn until January 21, 2024. Venus square Saturn is asking us to consider what we love and value. Is it something we wish to build a life upon? What this year has really been asking of us is to consider the structures of our lives and what they are built upon. Are they structures that are aligned with what we truly value, what we really love, what we really find of true worth? If not, how can we build something that is more heart aligned? What might those structures look like?
