Mutable Signs of Major Transition — November 30 — December 7 2022


The Moon in Pisces joins the slow-moving planets Neptune and Jupiter in the mutable-water sign.  With the Sun, Venus, and Mercury in the mutable-fire sign of Sagittarius, Mars in the mutable air sign Gemini, and Ceres in the mutable-earth sign Virgo, there is a lot of flexibility in transitions. Uranus and Saturn are in fixed signs, while Pluto and Chiron are in the cardinal sign Capricorn. Pluto has a universal impact through the cardinal – earth sign, while Chiron retro in Aries may tend to reflexive inner healing. The universal transition that is evolving with Neptune and Jupiter preparing to transition the Aries point, is triggered by the Moon this week, with Neptune changing to a direct motion.  A major transition in worldwide social contracts is in process. During the year from March 2023 to January 2024, Pluto is transitioning from Capricorn into Aquarius. As protests rage against authoritarian regimes, the transitional process is undeniably in evidence.
