A Snappy, Versatile Full Moon in Gemini 11/25/15

Astro Moon FullThe Sun is in Sagittarius, which means that this month’s Full Moon, on Wednesday November 25, 2015, is in the opposite sign – Gemini. While the Moon is in the Mercury ruled 3rd sign of the Zodiac, communication is key. Speaking / writing can tend towards the witty and the clever, but with “Full” energy, our interactions can also be purposeful, powerful and precise. I love this quote from Deepak Chopra:

“Language creates reality. Words are magical power. Speak always to create joy”

Let us all do that!

* Full Moon: 12/6/14 – 12:15 PM EST / 9:15 AM PST

 

 

Spontaneous, Sagacious, Sag Sun 11/22/15

astrology_chartwheel 2The Sun prances into Sagittarius on Sunday November 22, 2015 – let the fun times begin! The Sun is in this Fire sign and we can all enjoy it’s qualities of energy, optimism and adventure. Ruled by lucky planet Jupiter, the king of positive thinking, we just won’t have enough space for all the goodies anticipated. Everything is “BIG”- ideas, actions, themes. There is this underlying sense of “can’t miss”, “it’s all great!” Just remember to pause occasionally to look over the landscape – not only to enjoy the view, but also to realize that some of those “sure things” are not and might cost you more that you can afford – aim for controlled excess.

To add to all this, Saturn, planet of discipline and limits, which is quite different to Jupiter‘s goal (expansion on steroids), has been transiting the 9th sign of the Zodiac since last December. Depending on where it appears in your chart, the desire for adventure may be muted, our wings feel clipped, the pace of life slows down. We can still be upbeat, but maybe not so high? A bigger boat won’t be needed. Saturn remains in Sagittarius until December 2017.

Regardless, put yourself among people, travel, teach or take a class, revel in the abundance of the season. Be happy, be an “of course” for excellent results, reach for the good things, discover something new, pay attention to your intuition (Sagittarians love a good laugh but they’re also deep and love to ponder the universe.) but, just be aware of the edges – over confidence can send you too far. Have a good time, but, don’t overdo.

*Gem stone: Sodalite * Power color: Lilac, Mauve * Body Part: liver, Hips

BTW: The symbol for Sagittarius is the half man/ half horse Centaur (usually with a wine pouch). Perfect, just in time for holiday gatherings.

Spread cheer!

Sensational Scorpio New Moon 11/11/15

Astro New Moon CrescentThe Sun moved into Water sign Scorpio on October 23 and on Wednesday, November 11, it will be the Moon’s turn. Since both the Sun and the Lunar orb are in the same sign, (which is what makes a Moon phase “New”), all the passionate, emotional, sensitive vibes of this 8th sign of the Zodiac are powered up, intensified.

The New Moon is great for beginnings, starting something – businesses, diets, exercise programs, etc. When in Scorpio, ruled by transformational planet Pluto, it gives us the depth to be focused, persistent and determined. It can be serious! (Sort of a “take no prisoners” way of being?) Until the Full Moon on 11/25, when we are urged to complete projects, take advantage of the energy – initiate, create. Just remember to smile sometimes 😎
