Summary of Major Aspects of the Week

Wednesday November 18th —  A stellium in Capricorn with the Moon transit, activating the latent energies of the collected powers.  Mercury in Scorpio is in a sextile aspect to the Moon adding the depth of experience for transformation. Power (Pluto) is expressed and distributed (Jupiter) for easy absorption, as the Moon’s transit of the pair in Capricorn late in the day. Venus in Libra is in a square aspect to Jupiter/Saturn (indicating the midpoint), indicating reform policy announcements and mandates. The Moon in a square aspect to Mars in Aries activates the reform movement as the path ahead is envisioned.    

Thursday November 19th —  Pluto may be a force that tries to undermine the transfer of power, to overturn the consequential outcome, and Jupiter would then augment that effort. Pluto looks both directions. Pluto could also then be both the efforts to undermine the transition and the effort to succeed. So, there is a struggle that has a magnified importance. The Sun in Scorpio is sextile aspect to Saturn in Cap while Venus in Libra is square aspect to Saturn. Venus in Libra may tolerate variations, yet in the end, demands a just decision. The Sun in Scorpio is disposed of by Pluto. While Saturn disposes of Pluto. Efforts to undermine the reality of law (Pluto) will ultimately be bound by it (Saturn), as the dispositor of a planet receives the energy as a conjunction aspect.  

Friday November 20th — The Moon in Aquarius is square aspect to Mercury in Scorpio, as voices with impassioned technicality speak out. Venus in Libra and the Sun is Scorpio are in a partile semi-sextile aspect, working in unison, as their aspects to Saturn in Cap are transcended. Jupiter and Pluto are in a close conjunction aspect in Capricorn as a power struggle continues. Jupiter is leading and separating from Pluto. Emotionally tinged, as officials work around a recalcitrant president.

Saturday November 21st —  The Moon in Aquarius is semi-sextile aspect to Pluto and Jupiter in Capricorn, with prodding efforts to reach the entrenched powers. The first quarter Moon phase is reached by the end of the day (US time) or early Sunday morning in Europe and midday in Australia. This opens a crisis point as the Sun moves into Sagittarius. Venus moves into Scorpio and makes a semi-sextile aspect to the Sun, with Mercury in Scorpio at the midpoint of the aspect. Venus in Scorpio makes a trine aspect with the Moon and Ceres in Pisces, joining the emotional impact of a crisis, especially for women and the youth generation. Mercury is quincunx aspect to Mars, as problematic actions speak louder than words.
