Sagittarius New Moon This Weekend!

Astro New Moon CrescentThe Sagittarius New Moon on November 22, 2014 sets the tone for the entire weekend, both days are under the influence of the fiery, upbeat 9th sign of the Zodiac. Taking chances, seeking adventure can seem very attractive and stimulating. But, no matter how great the scheme sounds, you still must stay grounded enough to get all the facts first. (An exact measurement for the Bungee drop rope is a good idea).

Launch, create, kick-off, manifest – the New Moon is a great time to start something, especially with the positive, good luck Sag vibe. Of course success isn’t guaranteed, you still gotta do the work, but the universe and lunar energy will support you – which is nothing to sneeze at. Take advantage, work it – but, don’t get too cocky, pay attention to the details.

FYI = The Moon is “New” when it’s in the same sign as the Sun (Sun entered Sagittarius on 11/22/14, 4:38 AM EST / 1:38AM PST). Even though the Moon will go on to another sign (Capricorn on Monday), the supportive “New” energy lasts for approximately 10 days.

Have an upbeat, up tempo weekend!

Optimistic, Energetic, Sagacious Sag Sun, 11/22/14

That lucky old Sun bounces into Sagittarius on Saturday November 22, 2014. Ruled by “more is always best” planet Jupiter, this time of year is about livin’ large, taking chances, everything is great, the million dollar deal is done, “BIG”- ideas, actions, themes. All of this can can be full of adventure and great fun, but aim for “controlled” excess if things seem to be going over the top.

astrology_chartwheel 2Adding to festivities are transiting planets Mercury and Venus:

Venus (11/16 – 12/10/14) = the planet of love, beauty and grace. The effects of Venus’s pleasure principle can be enhanced and intensified while in Sagittarius. Social networking, flirting, charming encounters are all possible now.

Mercury (11/28 – 12/17/14) = Communication focused, clever, curious and often razor sharp, this planet visit can be great for creativity, sharing knowledge. Teach class, take a class, finally write something that you’ve been thinking about forever. However, watch language as you share YOUR views, no need for the snark or the snippy. Long bouts of verbal testiness is not attractive and can really smother a party.

A Sagittarius Sun wants us to be happy, to be with people, to revel in the abundance of the season. Be an “of course” for abundance, reach for the good things, learn something new, pay attention to your intuition (Sags love a good laugh but they are also wise and can see truth that others don’t) but, just be aware of the edges.

Of course, most affected will be those with a Sagittarius Sun, Ascendant and/or Moon sign. But, regardless of your actual birthday, always try to take advantage and benefit from the best vibrations of whichever sign the Sun is transiting. For the next 30 days, we can all share in some Sag fun.

BTW: The symbol for Sagittarius is the Centaur – half man/ half horse, usually with a wine pouch. Perfect – just in time for a holiday gathering. Spread cheer!

Virgo Moon This Weekend – Details. Details!

Astro moon-waning-crescent-lSaturday and Sunday, 15 & 16th of November, 2014, the Moon will be in Virgo the 6th sign of the Zodiac. There is a mood shift from the playful, sunny, “I” oriented Leo Moon of the last few days into the dutiful, service and work oriented Earth sign Virgo. Well, it won’t be sequins and glitter, but, we will be useful and organized. Make the most of it.

You may notice an inclination to analyze, to focus on the small stuff, no matter how tiny. (This might be an irritant to others, but things will get done – correctly!) So, write those “to do” lists, re caulk the bath tub, work hard, be industrious. Your mind will be sharp and no detail will be missed. Just try not to be too fussy or critical – after all it is the weekend 🙂

Enjoy!

Fierce Hi Heels at the Brooklyn Museum!

brooklyn musuem killer heels 2I really thought I was raising whatever back in the day when I graduated from “kitten” or “Cuban” heels to a 2 incher. Of course, seeing women prancing around on sky high stilettos today has put me in my place. I don’t /won’t wear them, but I think 6 inch needle heels are fierce and fascinating. The folks at the Brooklyn Museum think so too evidently. They’re putting on a show: ”Killer Heels: The Art of the High Heeled Shoe” until February 15, 2015.

“Killer Heels explores fashion’s most provocative accessory. From the high platform chopines of sixteenth-century Italy to the glamorous stilettos on today’s runways and red carpets, the exhibition looks at the high-heeled shoe’s rich and varied history and its enduring place in our popular imagination.”

Glowing Full Moon in Earthy Taurus 11/6/14

Astro Moon FullFeeling beautiful, stubborn and material? It might be the vibrations of the Taurus Full Moon on Thursday November 6, 2014. This is a fixed, finance focused Earth sign guided by the elegant, luxury loving planet Venus. Whatever vibes are out there can all be put to good use. Indulge the sensual side, while monitoring investments. Share chocolate covered strawberries with the left hand, while tallying the checkbook with the right. It’s possible!

As always with a “Full” Moon, it’s a good time to finish what you’ve started. With the grounded Taurus influence, it makes sense to complete any money dealings and/or improvements to surroundings – beauty, comfort and safety. What do you value most? What do you need to do to have those things in your life, always?
