The Thanksgiving turkey is gone and. Cranberry sauce and pumpkin pie are just sweet memories now. Our clothes feel a bit more snug. Black Friday has come and gone but cyber Monday is still ahead. Now we can officially think about Christmas, get those decorations out, and spread them all around the house. Well, you can decorate. I’ve got astrology on my mind.
Last week I talked about Neptune stationing and how that might affect the earth and our weather. Sure enough, there was an earthquake in the Fukushima Prefecture of Japan. Fortunately, there was not a tsunami associated with this one. The news media has not covered this event very much either. Maybe there is nothing to cover but I found this video that was pretty neat.
This week begins with a New Moon in Sagittarius. At the same time, the Moon will square Neptune. This is mudslinging energy and not the energy I enjoy but I will do my best to find the good parts and go with that. There is no telling what or who mud will be slung, flung, or thrown around could be aimed at. I just hope there is no dirt aimed at you or me, and I am going to do my best not to toss any dirt myself.
The next week will be dominated by a T- square involving Uranus, Pluto, and Jupiter with a side order of Venus conjunct Pluto. The Uranus/Pluto square is old news. We’ve been dealing with this energy for years. If you are not sure this means or you would like to refresh your memory, here is the link to a post about this energy I wrote back in 2012.
We have been working with the Uranus-Jupiter opposition energy for a while now. This began to hit us about the second week in November and will continue for into early next year. This opposition will perfect on December 26, 2016. Normally this perfection would mean the energy is coming to an end but no so in this case. We will actually experience this energy over much of next year.
Jupiter goes retrograde in early February and this will take us back over the energy territory we are going over now. Pay attention to what has been and will be going on for the next month or so. You might want to refer back to this info early next spring.
The Uranus-Jupiter opposition deals with our person freedoms. Jupiter loves to give us more of whatever he is triggering or aspects. In this case, it is the freedom and individuality of Uranus. The desire to be and do as we like is strong and Jupiter is going to increase the urge to go against anything that wants to keep us from that.
This energy is going to be with us on and off over the next year. There will be at least two more perfections of this opposition next year. One in March and the other in October. This last one happens just before Jupiter moves into Scorpio in October. The overall energy will shift somewhat as the other planets transit around the chart.
Uranus is the planetary shock jock and Jupiter expands that energy. Wherever you might be feeling held back or restricted, you can expect a release. The more pent up the personal energy, the more dramatic the release. We need to keep in mind how difficult change is for most of us, however. The bigger the change the more difficult it is to adjust to. Good luck with this. It is evolutionary and like it or not, it’s what we need.
This change could possibly relate to a relationship so you might want to be extra careful this week thanks to Venus joining the T-Square as the week begins. The planet of love, relationships, and finances will be conjunct Pluto and hungry for attention. Oo lala!
Social events early in the week will benefit from Lady Love’s power of attraction. But she might want to help Pluto destroy some things too. Venus views life and love through a traditional lens while in Capricorn. When Pluto joins in he can create some manipulative energy too. Some folks will be drawn to stalking, excess drugs, and alcohol. Watch out for sly foxes and those who might not be as respectful of the the rules and traditions as you are. Try not to get your hands too dirty. Keep the gloves on and take the high road. Any difficulty or conflict will actually serve your growth and evolution.
Let’s go back to the New Moon. New Moons represent the beginning of a new cycle. The last New Moon was intense and quite emotional for many. This was due to the watery, emotional sign of Scorpio taking us to the deep dark places of our soul.
This coming New Moon will be in the fire and light of Sagittarius. Most of us will notice a distinct change of energy this time. This Moon will give the week a huge boost in energy. If you have a lot to get done this week, you will probably find that things come together pretty well for you.
The past year we have been in a cycle of the number nine. Nine represents endings. Take a look back into this year and see all the endings you have created or experienced. This was a year we lost many of our icons that helped us express ourselves in so many creative ways. The list is long but among them are David Bowie, Alan Rickman, Sonny James, Mic Gillette, Glen Frey, Paul Kantner, Prince,Guy Clark, Muhammad Ali, Patty Duke, Gen Wilder, and more recently Leonard Cohen and Leon Russell. I lost a nearly life-long, dear, close friend last spring.
January begins a new year of one. 2+0+1+7= 10,1+0= 1. This is the number of new beginnings. But use the energy of this New Moon to complete the task of clearing out the old. I recommend this book if you need help. I did not follow this method exactly but it did lead me to positive change.
This week is full of moving energy. Today as the Sun is sesquiquadrate or 135 degrees to Uranus. This is real manifesting energy but you have to know where you are going first and what it is you really want. The drive to do new things is strong but use caution when making decisions. Quickly made ones might not end as we would hope.
Tuesday Venus will sextile Chiron. This is about healing personal relationships and seeing human weakness as a thing of beauty. Use this energy to build your relationships.
The same day, Venus squares Uranus. This is not a good time for impulse buying, not that there ever is, but this a particularly bad day for it. This day is full of unstable, rebellious, and restless energy.
Wednesday the Sun squares Neptune. Get creative today. This is a great day for meditation and spirituality. All other things could be out of focus and our direction unclear. Avoid important appointments, interviews, and launching new projects.
Thursday Mars trines Jupiter. This energy is clearer than the square energy of yesterday. Those things that gave us a headache yesterday seem to come easily to us today. This is also the first day after the New Moon and a great time to launch those news projects we have been putting off.
Friday Venus semisquares Neptune. Rose colored glasses will be in vogue today. But again, be cautious with your spending, social events, and anything else that requires clear thinking. Neptune has rolled in the fog to make things fuzzy.
Saturday Mars is sextile Saturn. This is action and responsibility energy. Your ability to make good decisions is much better today so use it. Pay attention to traditions. Saturn appreciates your organizational efforts and conscientiousness. Pay attention to any seniors in your life and watch all these things bring a reward of some sort.
Now, once again, I want to get on the shameless self-promotion platform and suggest a Hong Kong House Cookbook for your Christmas gift giving. I am heading out of town tomorrow to sell 14 of them to a friend who is buying them for her book club. To order your copy go here: http://amzn.to/2fpypsN
I would also like to share this platform with my dear friend Judy Cochrane who will publish her new book on Tuesday. I can tell you this is going to be a life-changing read for many people. It already has been for those who have read it in the proof stage. I’m in this book too but I am not going to tell you where just yet, as the names have all been changed. I hope you might consider buying her book on Tuesday of one day this week. To learn more about it go to:
