Two Versions with One Solution – November 13-20 2019

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

November 12, 2019

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 MercurySaturn 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 MoonMars 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.

Revelations at the Full Moon – November 6-13 2019

The Moon in a trine aspect to the Sun on Wednesday this week is conjunct Neptune and sextile aspect to Saturn in Capricorn. There is a deepening regard for a transfer of power. While the love of money is said to be the root of all evil, the negligence of obligation to protect the nation and the people of the nation on the part of the power structure is an evil that infects and results from the love of money. Everyone suffers as a result. The MarsPluto square aspect was an awakening to the struggle for power internationally. On Friday this week, the Moon ingress to Aries and trine aspect to Venus in Sagittarius signifies a more aggressive action as ambitions plans are formed. On Sunday, the Moon is in opposition to Mars in Libra and trine aspect to Jupiter in Sagittarius. Oppressive measures necessitate judicial applications. We may agree to an expanded inquiry. The Full Moon on the 12th is sextile to Pluto in Capricorn. Power and intrigue are brought into the open.

Summary of Major Aspects of the Week

Wednesday November 6th – As Mars supersedes the square aspect (90 deg, harsh) to Pluto, we should see a release of documents that were concealed. Mars in Libra searches for equity and fairness, while Pluto denotes a repressive power. As the conflict is now less active (powerful), the withheld resources are finally available.  The Moon in Pisces square aspect to Venus in Sadge and sextile aspect (60 deg friendly) to Uranus in Taurus gives a collective reaction to the revelations in the morning news. The Sun in Scorpio sextile aspect to Saturn in Cap and trine aspect (120 deg, flowing) to Neptune in Pisces reveal sources as revelations become structured into a policy for reform.

Expectations for Supreme Court decisions are in the offing. Publications can proceed.

Friday November 8th – The Moon ingress to Aries early in the day, and conjunction aspect (0 deg, combining) to Chiron, as the we try to understand the implications of a changed social-power environment. A trine aspect (120 deg, flowing) to Venus in Sadge later in the day (overnight in the Eastern hemisphere) helps to bring clarity as new alliances are formed, and we become collectively empowered with Neptune trine aspect to the Sun and sextile aspect (60 deg, friendly) to Saturn in Cap.

Saturday November 9th – The Moon traverses Aries with square aspects (90 deg, harsh) to Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn.  This is upsetting the standard procedures. The Moon could blend Saturn and Pluto into an effective conjunction aspect (0 deg, combining), a foreshadowing of the future, when the conjunction aspect is complete in early January. The Moon in a quincunx aspect (150 deg, complex) to the Sun and Mercury retro in Scorpio coincide with the square aspects to Saturn and Pluto, as a mixture of reactions reverberate.

Sunday November 10th – The Moon in Aries reaches the opposition aspect (180 deg, tense) to Mars in Libra and trine aspect (120 deg, flowing) to Jupiter in Sagittarius.  Some relief is felt in social gatherings, as communal events overshadow the greater conflicts.  The Moon ingress to Taurus late in the day (overnight in the Eastern hemisphere) as a crackdown of demonstrations could take place, with the lunar transit of Uranus retro.

Monday November 11thMercury retrograde in Scorpio is conjunct aspect (0 deg, combining) to the Sun, and this pair is also sextile aspect (60 deg, helpful) to the midpoint of Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn. As information (Mercury) is connected to an unraveling of positions in power (Saturn-Pluto) it takes work to integrate this into the everyday conscious mind. The Moon is in a quincunx aspect (150 deg, complex) to Venus in Sadge late in the day, as disbelief can be a factor, although humor is also displayed. The Moon is also sextile aspect to Neptune retro in Pisces as the unconscious mind takes in the charged vibrations.

Tuesday November 12th – The Full Moon, or Sun and Moon in an opposition aspect (180 deg, tense) as the developing issues reach a culmination, with the Sun in Scorpio opposed to the Moon in Taurus.

Mars in Libra in a sextile aspect to Jupiter in Sadge implements goals for a more balanced distribution of wealth (Taurus-Scorpio Full Moon) through legislation.      

Have a sucessful week! Thanks for reading this preview of the week ahead.
