Seismic Changes Reform the Future — November 9-16 2022


Chiron, the centaur semi-asteroid, is the only sphere operating in a fire sign until the Moon ingress Leo on Monday.  As a singleton in fire, this minor planet, has a heightened importance. Dubbed the “wounded healer”, Chiron in Aries initiates action. If we listen to the inner voice of wisdom, we can learn to heal wounds; righting wrongs becomes the mission. The Moon in Cancer this weekend forms grand-trine configurations with the planets in Scorpio and Pisces. Water is the element of transformation. Healing, regeneration, and renewal take place in water signs. The Centaur initiates a change in focus, as we are drawn to inner strength to heal the wounds we find impeding our progress. Only on Monday, with the Moon ingress to Leo, does the fire element reemerge to search for heroes and direction for the coming months. Care should be taken that the return is well founded and just.

Several Grand-Trine formations
November 13, 2022

Sunday November 13th — The Moon in Cancer makes a sextile aspect to Uranus retro in Taurus before dawn (US time Zones) morning in Europe and points east. A quincunx aspect to Saturn in Aquarius a few hours later could be a response to a violent threat or incident. The Moon makes an opposition aspect to Pluto in Capricorn, as questions of legitimacy of votes challenge the established process. In the afternoon hours, many trine aspects develop in water signs for seven grandtrine configurations, clearing the way for rapid development, especially in social and humanitarian reforms. Agreements could be made to move the incoming governments forward, as newly elected representatives are officially designated. A rapidly moving shift in consciousness results [see chart insert]. Enthusiasm builds for future programs, the vision of the candidates elected.  

Monday November 14th — The Moon ingress to Leo today, a fire sign, following the trine aspect to Jupiter in Pisces denoting enthusiastic approach, intent on creating a future that will impress. The Sun is Scorpio trine aspect to Neptune in Pisces and Venus in Scorpio trine aspect to Jupiter in Pisces. Pluto in Capricorn is sextile aspect to the midpoint of Mercury and Venus in Scorpio, increasing the influence of a wide conjunction aspect of just over 2 degrees. The conjunction aspect of Mercury and Venus reaches partile on November 17th at 0 deg. Sagittarius, however the foreshadowing of the aspect is of a power restructuring that is indorsed today. Jupiter and Neptune in Pisces indicate a dissolution process, as one cycle dissolves to make way for a new implementation. Pluto in Capricorn indicates a reformation of power structures. Mars retro in Gemini approaches the square aspect to Neptune and quincunx aspect to the Sun. Focused intent to create radical change must be moderated by regulations.

Tuesday November 15thMercury in Scorpio is trine aspect to Jupiter in Pisces, a harmonious aspect, opening the flood gates of expressed opinion. What is lost and what is to be gained by this cosmic shift? Old habitual ways are ending, while new vistas open. Some may be left behind unless there is a safety net. Venus’ ingress to Sagittarius later in the day may bring new promises, as Venus separates from the trine aspect to Jupiter. The Moon in Leo is trine aspect to Chiron in Aries, incorporating the more aggressive lessons of power, then in the afternoon makes a square aspect to Uranus retro in Taurus, as we cope with financial instability. Then there is an opposition aspect to Saturn, as limitations are placed a on too rapidly formed government. Mars retro in Gemini in a square aspect to Neptune retro in Pisces deflates illusions of a rapid beneficial change. All sides must compromise in the legislative process (and could be provided with Venus in Sagittarius).
