Astro Tapestry Report
Happy Thanksgiving 2016 Weekend!
By Nikki Rich and Starlene Breiter
Wednesday, November 23 … Mercury and Saturn finally conjoin after the build up for the past week or so. Mercury-Saturn can be a reality check. It can also be a problem with negative thinking. Really, in truth, it is critical thinking. Now, critical thinking does not have to be bad, or negative, but it is high level thinking that allows a person to reach an objective conclusion. Google tells me critical thinking is “the objective analysis and evaluation of an issue in order to form a judgment.” When we allow negativity to take hold we are no longer being objective so keep that in mind. Remind yourself that objectivity, or scientific thinking, is the appropriate way of looking at things today, even if what you see is not to your liking.
Thursday, November 24 … Jupiter squares Pluto and this reminds me of an inheritance. What sort of family “inheritance” will you be celebrating for Thanksgiving? Jupiter-Pluto can be skeletons coming out of the closet or it can be a deep appreciation for the depth of the shared family connections. There is something about wealth with Jupiter-Pluto so I ask you to consider today, on this day of Thanksgiving, what are you investing in? Metaphorically where are your resources being invested? Is it in stronger connections or is it in discord? Think about it and choose well and wisely!
Friday, November 25 … Venus is joining into a dance with the Jupiter-Pluto square from yesterday. She is in Capricorn so conjunct Pluto and squaring Venus. People are going to be cutthroat looking for a deal today! Black Friday fits Venus-Jupiter-Pluto. But on a higher note, if you are interested in conducting yourself on a more evolutionary wavelength, this aspect is an extension of yesterday with the focus being on relationships. Love, creativity, and power are all heightened at this time.
Saturday, November 26 … Mercury trine Uranus means let's try new things! Let's explore! Let's laugh and joke around and do something completely unexpected. This is a great aspect for a holiday weekend since it keeps things fresh and new, even if we are engaged in traditional activities! Buying gifts today means something unusual and offbeat so it's a great day to shop for someone who likes something different!
Sunday, November 27 … It's a relatively quiet day with a void-of-course moon later in the day from 4:48 PM Eastern US time (that is 2:28 PM Mountain time where I live) so it's a great day to rest and relax after a hectic (and fun!) weekend.
Monday, November 28 … no exact aspects today which is a rarity! But we are ramping up to the new moon in Sagittarius tomorrow!
Tuesday, November 29 … New moon in Sagittarius at 7 degrees 43 minutes. When we look at an individual chart to see where that occurs and what it activates we get a strong sense of how that new moon may effect an individual. For my chart it is conjunct my natal Neptune in my 3rd house … I could have the opportunity to do a lot of spiritual (both Sagittarius and Neptune) writing (3rd house) as one example. Starlene and I (Nikki) can help to look at the new moon in your chart if you like. But simply put the new moon is an infusion of positive energy and we can harness it if we so choose, and I so choose.
Be well, my friends, and stay safe!

Tuesday, November 8 to Monday, November 14, 2016
By Nikki Rich and Starlene Breiter
Tuesday is Election Day here in the US and there is not a lot going on today … we do have a void-of-course moon most of the day, from 8:55 AM Eastern time to 4:55 PM Eastern time so I do not expect much excitement during the day … in fact, voter turnout could be lower than usual because of this.
It is a pretty quiet week. We have some planets entering new signs but not much else going on until the new moon on Monday. The first ingress is Mars into Aquarius on early Wednesday morning. Mars represents action and Aquarius in an intellectual air sign so this placement often involves a lot of mental activity! We can put a lot of energy into our thoughts and I just want to say that what we think is important so please work on monitoring your active mind! It is your mind and you are able to think the thoughts you choose. So if you do not like what is going on inside your own head (too much negative thinking, for example), Mars in Aquarius can give you the mental energy to modify your internal landscape to help it become more enjoyable to live inside your own head.
Friday Nov 11, when Venus enters Capricorn which is good for business but not always as good for love. The best way to utilize Venus in Capricorn is to look at your relationships as investments and put some positive energy into them to see what kind of return you get!
On Saturday, Nov 12, Mercury enters Sagittarius which helps lighten the mood a bit. We will have less looks full of angst and more jokes and laughter than when Mercury was in Scorpio.
Finally, on Monday, November 14, we have the full moon in Taurus. There is something incredibly delicious about the full moon in Taurus. Taurus knows how to make themselves comfortable, and that is a very individual thing. Sometimes it is luxury items and other times is is simple meditation in the garden. Whatever it is for you the Taurus moon gives us the opportunity to reflect on that in our own lives which makes us feel more comfortable, grounded and centered.
The Sabian Symbol for 23 Taurus is A Jewelry Shop Filled With Valuable Gems. Metaphorically we all have valuable gems in our lives. What are yours and how do you care for them? This may be material items but it can also be the people in our lives, the abilities we have worked so hard to cultivate, or our moral, ethical or spiritual principles. What do you value? Do you treat that which you value as it deserves to be treated? Do you treat yourself like you too are of value?
Affirmation: It is safe to look within. All is well in my world. I am safe.
Essential Oil: Sweet Orange for it's qualities of happiness, joy and warmth. Sweet orange also haleps us to stay resolute regarding our intentions.
Gemstone: Black Tourmaline for letting go of that which no longer serves us.
