Weekly Forecast ~ Week of November 26th
We start this week off with a boost of light and we finish with a dive back into the watery depths. It’s a planetary roller coaster, all! Do what you can to enjoy the ride!
Monday November 26th ~
Moon in Cancer
Sun Conjunct Jupiter
Mercury Square Mars
What it means:
When I think of the sun and Jupiter together in Sagittarius I think of warmth, joy, optimism and confidence. What a beautiful day! What a beautiful transit! Anything that makes you feel more alive, more joyful, more generous is recommended today. Feel your inner glow and shine your light on others you meet. This is wonderful energy for spiritual inspiration as well … you can touch the face of god on a day like today. Enjoy!
Mercury squaring Mars is another matter … there could be some rash words, even angry words. With Mercury retrograde this could relate to an ongoing issue or something you thought had been dealt with previously but is here again and needs more attention. If you are starting to feel frustrated today turn this situation around in your head. Know that it will get dealt with and know that getting upset about it isn’t going to help in getting it done.
Questions to ask:
What truly brings me joy? What am I grateful for? How can I share my good fortune with those around me? Where in my life do I feel inspired?
When I lose my temper how can I find it again? What am I really upset about, underneath all the surface stuff?

Moon in Cancer void-of-course at 1:22 AM CST
Moon enters Leo at 2:35 AM CST
Sun Conjunct Mercury
Mars Sextile Saturn
Mercury Conjunct Jupiter
What it means:
There is a lot going on today. Let’s start with the Mars-Saturn aspect and then take the two aspects involving Mercury together.
Mars sextile Saturn is wonderful for getting it done, whatever it is. If there is something you have been putting off then today is the day to jump on it and make it happen. You will have the tenacity to see it though, whether it’s a phone call you have been dreading or a project you wanted to complete or a workout you have wanted to try. Mars-Saturn is great energy that lasts so you can accomplish that thing you didn’t want to have to bother with at all.
We have the sun conjoining Mercury in the early morning and then Mercury conjoining Jupiter later the in the day. To be honest today is a day for amazing insight. It’s a day for bright ideas. It’s a day to believe in yourself and to believe that the world really is a good place.
With sun-Mercury we have the halfway point of the Mercury retrograde cycle. Things start to get easier. We are figuring out how to resolve some of the issues that have cropped up under Mercury retrograde. I kind of think of Mercury retrograde as the time when problems tend to come to light … because problems are a natural part of human existence and even if we did something how we thought it should be done previously we often get new information under Mercury retrograde that requires us to reconsider our plan. So we make adjustments and we work on making our life, our relationships, our work more efficient and more well put together. When the sun and Mercury are together we have the light of the universe shining into our thoughts and inspiring us with clarity of vision. So if you are feeling it today then see it through.
With Mercury-Jupiter we can the power of faith, hope and optimism in our thoughts and in our words. We can say the right thing when someone needs to hear it, or we can think the right thing when we need it most. “Hope is the thing with feathers that perches in the soul” (Emily Dickinson) and today we are feeding that feathered source of hope within us.
Questions to ask:
What tasks can you accomplish today that on other days might have seemed too daunting? What would you like to have in your life that might take a little bit of effort but that would be totally worth that effort?
If you had clarity, optimism and faith in yourself and in the world what would you do? How would you act? Who would you be right now?

Moon in Leo
No Exact Aspects
Since there are no exact aspects today I would like to pause a take a look at the BIG PICTURE for a moment. We are all on a path seeking redemption. We are all struggling with living in this world full of contradictions while working to allow our souls to evolve and move closer toward a state of compassion. This is not a direct path. Sometimes we descend into confusion and sometimes we make mistakes on our journey. We must take detours and sometimes we even forget where we are going. Chiron dancing around the Aries Point and stationary Neptune in Pisces teach us that a spiritual crisis is not a crisis at all … it is a point at which we can begin our journey home.
Thursday November 29th ~
Moon in Leo void-of-course at 3:46 AM CST
Moon enters Virgo at 5:08 AM CST
With the moon in Virgo I like to be conscientious of the “offerings” we are making in our lives. Are we giving the cashier at the store a smile? Or are we giving them a scowl? Are we helping our children with their homework in a manner that promotes learning or are we impatient and short? Are we offering our best selves to the world? Or are we short-changing ourselves and others? Think about it. What kind of offering are you making today?
Friday November 30th ~
Moon in Virgo
Venus Opposite Uranus
When Venus and Uranus are opposed there are sparks in the air. We are drawn towards spontaneity and excitement. I always think of like a flash mob showing up doing a Bollywood style dance in some random spot. It’s enticing and fun and exhilarating! If you find yourself suddenly attracted to someone or something understand that it’s important to live in the moment. A flower that is in full blossom can be enjoyed right now but we cannot come back next week and expect it to evoke the same feeling in us. The same for a sunset, a performance, or a potential lover. Do what makes you happy today and embrace the fun.
Saturday December 1st ~
Moon in Virgo void-of-course at 8:34 AM CST
Moon enters Libra at 8:39 AM CST
Mercury RX enters Scorpio
In case you forgot Mercury is still retrograde and he does the moonwalk back into the sign of Scorpio today. Our thoughts deepen. Our shadows darken. Our seduction increases. Our secrets come back into our awareness. Mercury was previously in Scorpio from October 9th to October 30th so if you can recall what you were thinking about at that time you will see your thoughts returning to those same issues once again. I personally like using Mercury in Scorpio to help develop my own intuitive gifts and if that’s something you are into you can do that, too.
Sunday December 2nd ~
Moon in Libra
Venus enters Scorpio (again)
Venus is no longer retrograde but she is still passing through the territory she covered earlier this year during her retrograde phase. Venus in Scorpio wants to simply be loved with an intensity and devotion that makes her swoon. What are you completely enamored of in your own life? How can you deepen your devotion? It might be your work or your hobby or your child or your partner of yourself … what it is doesn’t matter as much as giving yourself permission to go all in. Venus was previously in Scorpio from September 9th until October 31st. Her current transit of Scorpio will extend into January.
