The Moon in Gemini in opposition aspects to Venus and Jupiter in Sagittarius, before its ingress to Cancer on Friday, with a conjunction to Rahu and moving into a grand trine in water signs on Saturday, combines Neptune and Mercury retro with the lunar influence. Information gained is processed quickly, unearthing secrets. The Moon’s opposition aspect to Saturn and Pluto then trine aspect to the Sun empowers us as we strive to restore normalcy and the rule of law. The Moon in a square aspect to Mars on Sunday following the rapid decline of power, seems a reflexive expression of imbalance, although a quincunx aspect to Jupiter could ease the way forward, with expanded court power. A court injunction is possible now, at the Moon’s ingress to Leo. Mars ingress Scorpio early on Tuesday as the Moon reaches the 3rd quarter phase, a crisis in dissemination, as issues become diffused. Mars in Scorp approaches the opposition aspect to Uranus in Taurus, potentially a violent outbreak, or one involving self-harm. Think through your emotions now to avoid over-reacting.
Summary of Major Aspects of the Week
Wednesday November 13th – Two versions of events are proffered for consideration. The Sun a sextile aspect (60 deg, friendly) to Pluto is the version with greater inherent power. Mercury sextile aspect to Saturn is the version with more focused analysis. One has the right of authority (Pluto-Sun), the other the right of correctness (Saturn-Mercury). Mars sextile aspect to Jupiter continues in its influence, as a search for balance with legal justification continues. The public hearings on the impeachment inquiry get underway, with the support of the planetary configurations. The Moon in Gemini sets the atmosphere of the inquiry as an investigation into intent and consequences continues.
Thursday November 14th – The Moon in Gemini is in an opposition aspect (180 deg, polarized) to Venus in Sagittarius early in the day, with other aspects to the Moon including a square aspect (90 deg, harsh) to Neptune in Pisces, forming a T-square configuration (one planet square aspect to 2 planets in opposition aspects) Neptune is critical in this, as discussions are working with disinformation and conspiracies. The Moon in is a quincunx aspect (150 deg, complex) to Mercury retro in Scorpio and also to Saturn in Capricorn, a Yod configuration vying with the T-square for attention. The Mercury–Saturn sextile aspect is stronger and more enduring, as is the Venus square aspect to Neptune. The lunar trigger of the configurations-aspects sets the stage for the overall outcome, the basic competitions of the day. The Moon then moves on to a quincunx aspect to the Sun in Scorp and another quincunx to Pluto in Cap, as alternative views are rigorously displayed. Mars in the enduring sextile aspect (60 deg, friendly) to Jupiter in Sadge, as dynamic discussion expand legal boundaries.
Friday November 15th – The Moon in Gemini in an opposition aspect (180 deg, tense) to Jupiter could resolve tension as the Moon is also in a trine (120 deg, flowing) aspect to Mars in Libra early in the day. The Moon ingress to Cancer follows with a square aspect (90 deg, harsh) to Chiron in Aries for a burst of principled advice. The Moon sextile aspect (60 deg, friendly) to Uranus triggers a torrential response. The Moon is then in a conjunction aspect (0 deg, combining) with Rahu. We can learn a lot from Vedic astrologers about Rahu and Ketu, the lunar nodes. They are sometimes referred to as the Dragon’s head and Dragon’s tail in the Western astrological tradition. The nodes are called “headless planets” in Vedic as they have no intrinsic activating properties, being without actual form or substance. They are always in opposite signs and houses of a chart. Here Rahu, as a transit in a conjunction aspect with the Moon, tends to obsessive behavior, often relating to the maternal influence of the native. This could trigger a depressive mood or an obsessive mind-set.
Saturday November 16th – The Moon in Cancer forms a grand- trine configuration (three planets in 120 deg aspects to each of the other two) to Neptune in Pisces and Mercury retro in Scorpio. This is indicative of obsessive behavior. Great care should be taken to maintain good mental health, and avoid obsessive thoughts. The grand-trine will facilitate a good outcome or a disastrous outcome, depending on abilities to cope with the issues and overcome circumstances. An opposition aspect (180 deg, tense) from the Moon to Saturn indicates a response from authorities that seems immediate. There is the possibility that a rescue could be accomplished, or a strategy that allows for a successful transition is employed. The Moon in a quincunx aspect (150 deg, complex) to Venus could provide for a social intervention that could then help overcome a downward spiral. The Moon is in an opposition aspect to Pluto overnight US times (more active in the Eastern hemisphere). This could be the endgame of demonstrations in Hong Kong, where there is a possibly of a resignation.
Sunday November 17th – The Moon in a quincunx (150 deg, creative) aspect to Jupiter in Sagittarius could help alleviate conflicts attributed to the Moon–Mars square aspect (90 deg, harsh). Creative or fun events could be planned. The Moon transits into Leo for more enjoyment from Sport events, or children’s games. A square aspect from the Moon to Uranus increases the possibility of violent outcomes to conflicts, or perhaps a surprise blessing in disguise.
Monday November 18th – The Moon in Leo makes a square aspect (90 deg, harsh) to Mercury retro in Scorpio indicating more hurtful comments that explode the situation. The Moon in quincunx aspects (150 deg, complex) to Neptune in Pisces and Saturn in Capricorn forms a Yod configuration, adding a measure of talent for a favorable outcome. Quick thinking and actions that are both limited (Saturn) and all encompassing (Neptune) could solve a situation at a difficult impasse. Mars ingress to Scorpio as goals are reoriented. Ceres moves into Capricorn as a generation’s voice becomes officially standardized
Tuesday November 19th – The Moon quincunx aspect (150 deg, complex) to Pluto early in the day US times (afternoon hours in the far East) continues to trail the violence in cities such as Hong Kong. A trine aspect (120 deg, easy) from the Moon to Venus follows, as a possible truce is reached. The Moon square aspect (90 deg, harsh) to the Sun – the third quarter phase- coincides with a crisis moment of possible resolution of conflicts. The Moon trine aspect to Jupiter later in the day increases self-satisfaction. The Moon ingress to Virgo to a quincunx aspect to Chiron and a trine aspect to Ceres in Capricorn., then a trine aspect to Uranus as well, forming a grand-trine in earth signs. With a sextile aspect (60 deg, friendly) to Mars in Scorpio, the rapidly changing atmosphere results in progress for the resolution of conflicts.
