Transits of the Scorpio-Sagittarius Lunation
*November 14 @ 9:07 pm PT* The New Moon in Scorpio forms a sextile to the Jupiter-Pluto conjunction, highlighting great ambitions, the impulse to strive for excellence, for high achievement, for power and influence. Seeds planted in such rich soil may grow to extraordinary heights, but growth without integrity will ultimately lead to an untimely withering and a fall of the crowning flower. Strive for the sunlight, but stay connected to the deep roots that nourish as well.
*November 15 @ 11:43 am PT* Venus in Libra perfects its square to Pluto in Capricorn in the morning, and then Jupiter in Capricorn in the late evening. The heart beats with warmth and intensity, with growth and transmutation. Whether through drama or depth, disturbance or surrender, relationships are called to stretch and transform, to encompass both light and shadow in their movement towards wholeness.
*November 17 @ 12:07 am PT* Mercury in Scorpio opposes Uranus in Taurus for the third time this season, sparking new insights and revelations, bringing to the light of the mind’s eye realizations that may have been passed over during the previous two oppositions.
*November 19 @ 8:30 am PT* The waxing crescent Moon opens the next phase of the lunation cycle as the Sun in Scorpio forms a sextile with both the Moon and Saturn in Capricorn, and Venus in Libra squares Saturn as well. The desire may arise to withdraw emotionally into a safe relational container, protecting the heart, and holding one’s feelings with tender maturity.
*November 21 @ 8:45 pm PT* The waxing quarter Moon in early Pisces occurs the same day as the Sun alights in Sagittarius and Venus descends into Scorpio. The call to mutate, shed, deepen, sensitize, feel, soften, and open, all initiate the season of late autumnal adventure. Amethyst mist clings to twilight spiderwebs, and the light dwindles into piercing beams of subtle warmth.
*November 23 @ 8:40 pm PT* Mercury in Scorpio trines Neptune in Pisces, dissolving the mind into the eternal wellspring of images that upwells from the ceaseless celestial seas of the dreamworld.
*November 26 @ 7:43 pm PT* The Moon ingresses into Taurus, the sign of her exaltation, after spending the day squaring the Jupiter-Saturn-Pluto stellium in Capricorn. Complex emotional dynamics arise, dramatic feelings, over-stimulation, isolation, the need to withdraw and the need to feel connected. The evening may bring an unexpected softness, an opening to heart’s contentment.
*November 27 @ 9:11 am PT* Mercury in Scorpio forms a sextile to Pluto, while Venus in the same sign opposes Uranus in Taurus. Deep and meaningful conversations awaken the heart to new desires and attractions, a dazzling sparkle of fireworks alighting from heart to heart, and mind to mind.
*November 28 @ 4:36 pm PT* Neptune in Pisces swims direct after spending half the year retrograde, now joining all the planets except Uranus in their forward orbital journey through the solar system. Mercury in Scorpio also forms a sextile to Jupiter, broadening the intellect to encompass new philosophical perspectives and birth grand ideas from the realm of potentia.
*November 30 @ 1:30 am PT* The Full Moon initiates eclipse season with a Lunar Eclipse on the Sagittarius-Gemini axis, while Mercury in Scorpio sextiles Saturn in Capricorn. Pivotal conversations may transmute the unfolding of destinies, opening unseen possibilities and whispered potentials, while also narrowing the focus on what realities can actually be manifested.
*December 1 @ 11:51 am PT* Mercury leaps into Sagittarius, and the tongue of the storyteller tells long tales of grandeur and adventure, exaggerating the successes and downplaying the failures, weaving a narrative of high achievement and abundant celebration.
*December 5 @ 8:53 pm PT* Venus in Scorpio trines Neptune in Pisces, while sirens sing and mermaids swoon, and gentle butterflies alight on the heart of the enchanted lover who has fallen in love with a dream.
*December 7 @ 4:37 pm PT* The waning quarter Moon in Virgo squares the Sun in Sagittarius, bringing in the harvest of the lunation and separating the wheat from the chaff to see how much abundance really came to fruition.
*December 9 @ 11:41 am PT* The Sun in Sagittarius squares Neptune in Pisces, pouring symbolic waters in the soul of being, the fountain of self overflowing and saturating the cosmos with idealized visions and fantasies. The world becomes a scrying mirror, and the reflections echo from eternity to the heavens in a single moment of infinite concrescence.
*December 10 @ 3:52 am PT* Venus in Scorpio sextiles Pluto in Capricorn at the start of the day, and the Sun in Sagittarius trines Mars in Aries at day’s end. Morning dawns with deep passion, the rich auras of the world coloring the potency of existence, before the warrior steps forth with fire and certainty, the heroic sword in hand catching gleams of the setting Sun.
*December 13 @ 3:38 am PT* Mercury in Sagittarius squares Neptune in Pisces, drawing the veils of illusion across the rational intellect, gossamer potentials trilling in mental waterfalls off cliffs of rationality and into pools of unreason.
*December 14 @ 8:17 am PT* The New Moon in Sagittarius is a potent Solar Eclipse, occurring on the same day as Venus in Scorpio sextiles Jupiter in Capricorn, and Mercury in Sagittarius trines Mars in Aries. Moon and Sun conjoin in their sacred marriage, renewing their vows in daylight darkness, expanding their love to new heights, and igniting the noosphere with the fire of passion.
