Sagittarius New Moon Coalition — November 23-30 2022


The New Moon is in the early degree of Sagittarius on Wednesday, signifying a renewal of political alliances, the theme of the next four weeks. With the mid-term elections out of the way, political factions are turning to the drawing board to develop a plan to combat the opposition. In doing so, they will need to dig deeply into policy, and maybe find they must self-transform. To be viable for the next election cycle, it is necessary to confront the issues of the day. Adding an extra modifier to slogans for 2020 will not fit the bill. Jupiter in Pisces is the dispositor of the Sun, Moon, Mercury, and Venus in Sagittarius. Jupiter changes direction direct motion phase, ready to leave Pisces on December 22nd.  For now, creating an agenda appears to bounce off old ideas and policies, targeting political enemies to justify reforms. Mars trine aspect to Saturn communicates boundary issues. Mars makes square aspect to both Neptune in Pisces and Ceres in Virgo for a T-square. On Monday, another T-square is formed with Mars and Mercury opposition aspect square aspect to Saturn.

Wednesday November 23rd — Prior to the New Moon phase, the Moon in Scorpio is in a compatible trine aspect to Jupiter in Pisces, showing a tendency to let things ride… to procrastinate. Work on building power, in the sextile aspect to Pluto in Capricorn, could yield results. The New Moon in Sagittarius this afternoon or evening (depending on US time zones) is in the 2nd degree of Sadge, [see charts] and the Moon makes conjunction aspects to Venus and Mercury overnight. The World Cup tournament kicks during this the minor stellium.  A no booze game may disappoint, but the appreciation of the game may benefit. (Jupiter in Pisces disposed of by Neptune). Mars is square aspect to the opposition aspects for a T-square configuration. More order and less chaos. Mars retro in Gemini approaches the trine aspect to Saturn in Aquarius, a long-term aspect, within orb until early December. Limitations help to focus goals. From learning to application, selections must be made. What can be gleaned from theory to fit the practical reality?
