Astro Tapestry Report
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.
