The Value of It All -- Astrology Forecast for Mon., Nov. 14th - Sun., Nov. 20th, 2016

Please note that all times given below are Eastern Standard Time -- to change the listed times to your own timezone, I recommend clicking here for the time and date converter

Last week was an interesting mix of emotions and healing. I felt so taken care of by the universe and yet so saddened about the devision of our country, as a result of the elections. However, when I related it to all the Pluto energy that we are currently feeling, the message seems so clear: this is about embracing our own power more fully rather than giving it away to others -- focusing on what we have control over (myself, my responses, my choices, self-care) rather than focusing on what lies outside of our control (other people's preferences, beliefs, actions).  

My dear friend David Ellzey said it best: "Notice the difference between you replaying in your mind the worse case scenarios and being present here. Then take a few full relaxing breaths, lowering your shoulders, and being present in the now, where all the scenarios are movies in your head. Breathe, now, lower your shoulders, and drop from your head to your breath". 

Before we get to this week's forecast, I have one quick announcement: 
Last chance to sign up for my MONTHLY FORECASTING FORUM, live this coming TuesdayNov. 15th at 12:30pm PST/3:30pm EST/8:30pm GMT (London-time). Please note that we have a Super Moon/Full Moon in Taurus this week; a Chiron Station, and the Jupiter/Pluto square coming up in November/December! If you'd like to get in alignment with the stars for those events, join me live or sign up for the mp4-video recording.

Other than booking a reading with me, this is the highest level of support you can get -- and it's only $24 for the 90-minute webinar. To register now, click here

This week's headline items: the Full Moon/SuperMoon in Taurus will be exact on Monday morning; on Tuesday, the North Node reaches the degree of a previous eclipse; Neptune comes to a halt on Saturday late evening; Chiron starts to slow down (station) on Sunday.

There will also be three Moon VoC phases this week: Monday morning (for 12 hours), Wednesday morning (for 14 hours), and Friday afternoon (for a little over 5 hours).

Monday (November 14th): the Moon remains in steady, peaceful Taurus all day. It will be there until this evening. We love all physical comforts, prefer consistency, and would rather stick with what we know works well. In other words: change is not our favorite thing and "rushing things" goes against our grain. What is our favorite thing right now? It's probably, slowing down and getting in touch with whatever delights our senses ;-)

Monday at 8:52am EST, the Full Moon in 22 degrees of Taurus becomes exact(feel free to watch my video on the subject). The Sun in Scorpio opposes the Moon in Taurus. This is the third of four "Super" Full Moons in a row. SuperMoons occur when the Moon is either Full or New while at its closest distance to the Earth -- and therefore more powerful. 

This could very well mean an increase in emotional reactions and greater awareness around the issues connected to the Full Moon energy in question. In this case, that's the Scorpio/Taurus polarity: We'll seek balance and integration around those poles -- something needs to be brought into alignment -- so let's look at them in more detail: 

We already covered the Scorpio energy in great detail in my last video (New Moon in Scorpio) -- you may want to watch it again -- but here's a brief summary:

Scorpio teaches us to connect to our deepest passions, let go of our emotional attachments or traumas, overcome our fears, and connect deeply, intimately and authentically to ourselves and others. Scorpio teaches us to embrace all of who we are, so we can be more authentic and feel more empowered. 
 
The other pole in this balancing act is Taurus, which seeks a healthy relationship with the physical world — this includes our body, planet, resources, money, and our highest values. We learn about the power of beauty and what makes us happy on the physical level. We develop our talents and sense of self-worth -- and we can discover and manifest what we truly value, what we truly enjoy.

A healthy sense of self-worth is critical: No amount of money or material possessions will substitute. In connection with this, ask yourself: What matters most to me? What makes me happy deep down? 
 
Some of us are over-focused on the material side of life while others either reject or deny it. What if you changed your point of view toward the physical world just a little? What is in the way of you honoring your gifts and talents? Of feeling confident and valued in the world? What if you had value just because you were the only one of you there will ever be?

Venus, the ruler of Taurus, is currently in Capricorn. Here, it asks us to make long-term commitments, to be more practical, and appreciate maturity. On a financial level, we get real about what comes in, and what goes out. 

What do you discover when you look at your bank account? Do you have savings? How do you spend your money? Do you borrow more than you can afford to pay back? How realistic are you about what you can afford? What does that mean long-term for you?

Pluto is the modern ruler of Scorpio. It's currently in Capricorn, where it forms a square to Jupiter in Libra, makes another approach to Uranus in Aries, and trines the North Node in Virgo. 

This is a very powerful combo; it asks us to be completely honest (with ourselves and others) about our intentions and motivations, especially around long-term goals. It suggests that each one of us has the power to make a difference in the world... we just need to seize the moment and move courageously forward.

We are at a turning point. Empowering others is key! Notice when you try to force your beliefs on others. That could introduce an element of disempowerment with ourselves and others, so just be aware of that... 

All of this could also feel quite intense -- between our long-term goals and our relationships, we could be stretched to the max. I strongly recommend that you practice as much self-care as you are able to, during this time -- ask yourself: What does my "inner baby" need? How can I nurture it and still connect with others or follow my passions? 

Venus conjoins Pluto in Capricorn on Nov. 25th. This allows us to let go of toxic behaviors around self-worth or relating to others. We uncompromisingly seek deep, totally authentic connections with others, so do your best to be completely truthful about your motivations and needs. When Pluto is involved, it's crucial to choose the power of love over that of fear, whenever possible.

Mars (the traditional ruler of Scorpio) is currently in Aquarius, in a mutual reception with Uranus in Aries -- in other words, these planets support each other's agenda. The last time Mars journeyed through Aquarius was in December 2014/January 2015. What began around that time? How would that move to the next level?  

With this combo we'll be looking for unique and original goals -- in fact, we tend to have a rather original, forward-thinking view of the world in general. It's best to give ourselves and others lots of space; if we feel boxed in, we may rebel or act contrary. 

This will be even more true within our relationships when we start to feel the Venus/Uranus square around Nov. 29th -- this could bring in some instability or restlessness, perhaps related to our finances or business relationships. As best as you can, don't take things too personally -- and stay as flexible as possible. 

Fear, uncertainty or discomfort is possible with this aspect, because we are invited to stretch ourselves and step into the unknown. What if something unexpected were around the corner that will change your life for the better? What needs to be eliminated (or changed) so you can move into a better future? What would "courage" do? What if you simply surprised yourself, right here and now?

The Sun in Scorpio also makes an inconjunct to Uranus in Aries at the time of the Full Moon. This indicates that we need to develop an inner awareness: It's time to think (and see) different. Flexibility is key -- what calls out to be adjusted? How can we expand our perception of the physical world? How can we move from domination to co-creation? Could you release any wanting to control or be controlled by others?

Here are a few final coaching questions for this Full Moon: If letting go always brought more freedom, what would you release? What if our imperfections were assets in disguise? How could our own sensitivities or shortcomings bring forth more love and compassion?

Remember: gentleness towards ourselves creates an opening to heal and become whole. How gently could you treat yourself? For more on this Full Moon, click here to watch my video on the subject.

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or personal planets) in 20-24 degrees of Taurus, Scorpio, Aquarius and Leo? If so, you are more affected by this month's Full Moon. This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Leo or Cancer (the Sun rules Leo; the Moon rules Cancer).

Also at 8:52am EST, we enter a Moon void of course (VoC). that lasts for almost 12 hours, until 8:23pm EST. Use this intuitive time to balance your need for comfort and security with your desire for deeper emotional connections with yourself and others. As always with a Moon VoC, as best as you can, don't start anything brand-new, stick to routine things, or simply go with the flow. You may also want to plan Monday Day ahead of time ;-)

Monday at 8:23pm EST, the Moon moves into chatty, versatile Gemini, where it will be until Wednesday evening. For the next two days, we like to learn, connect and interact as much as possible. 

"Busy" feels good: connecting online, on the phone, or sharing face-to-face, preferably multi-tasking all the way...The one thing we can do without is boredom: If our mind is not engaged in some way, we might as well curl up and play dead :-) 

Monday all day and Tuesday before 2:30pm EST is your last chance to sign up for my MONTHLY FORECASTING FORUM -- live on TuesdayNov. 15th at 12:30pm PST/3:30pm EST/8:30pm GMT (London-time).

If you'd like to get in alignment with the stars for those events, join me live or sign up for the mp4-video recording.

Tuesday (Nov. 15th): the Moon remains in curious, versatile, chatty Gemini all day (see Monday evening for details).

Tuesday early afternoon, an opportune Mercury/Mars aspect becomes exact at 12:22pm EST. We started feeling this aspect from last Saturday evening on; it will be strong until this Friday; it provides an opportunity to connect thought to action. Body and mind can align, if we choose. Words and deeds come quickly; we can be not only quick, but brave. As with any opportunity, we have to "take" this one: it will not happen by itself.

Do you have your Ascendent, Career Point (or any personal planets) in 0-7 degrees of Sagittarius, Aquarius, Libra or Aries? If so, you may be more aware of this opportunity. 

Tuesday before 2:30pm EST, is also your very last chance to sign up for my MONTHLY FORECASTING FORUM -- liveat 3:30pm EST/8:30pm GMT (London-time). Please note that we just had a Super Moon/Full Moon in Taurus; a Chiron Station, and the Jupiter/Pluto square coming up in November/December! If you'd like to get in alignment with the stars for those events, join me live or sign up for the mp4-video recording.

Wednesday (Nov. 16th): the Moon remains in curious, versatile, chatty Gemini until 7:57pm EST (see Monday evening for details).

Wednesday at 5:58am EST, we enter a 14-hour Moon void of course (VoC). that lasts until 7:57pm EST. Use this intuitive time as an opportunity to share about your visions and dreams for a better future. As always with a Moon VoC, as best as you can, don't start anything brand-new, stick to routine things, or simply go with the flow. You may also want to plan Wednesday ahead of time ;-)

Wednesday at 7:57pm EST, the Moon moves into protective, nurturing Cancer, where it will journey until Friday late evening. With this Moon placement, we are more sensitive to what people say and therefore our feelings are more easily hurt -- so be kind to yourself and others. Self-Care is key for the next two and half days ;-)

Emotional safety is important to us as well; we like connecting to the familiar and we enjoy nurturing ourselves and others -- home and family call to us, for instance. Make sure though, that your glass is filled before letting others drink from it, otherwise you might start to feel drained and resentful. 

Also on Wednesday: the North Node reaches 9 degrees 20' of Virgo, the exact same degree of the Solar Eclipse from Sept. 1st. This invites us to take another step on our Soul's Journey. What did you discover around Sept. 1st? What is showing up today, that resonates back to that time? What can you do to learn more about your daily well-being? What is a simple improvement that would support you with your daily routines?

Thursday (Nov. 17th): theMoon remainsinprotective, introverted Cancer all day (see Wednesday evening for details). Late morning we feel a sense of "flow" and emotional connection to others: Neptune trines the Moon.

Towards the evening, we may encounter relationship challenges that require a creative approach: The Moon opposes Pluto and squares Jupiter. This could drive some tension or oppositional behaviors; as best as you can, remain flexible and practice self-care. 

Remember: no matter what, you need other people in your life, so find win-win solutions ;-) Ask yourself: Would I rather be right or connected? Tomorrow is another day; it may well bring another perspective.

Also on Thursday, Neptune conjuncts the South Node in Pisces, asking us to release the lower vibrational tendencies of Pisces: escapism (including addictions of any kind), victim-thinking/behavior, martyr behavior, feeling separate/isolated/scared, etc. Instead of giving in to this kind of thing, we are invited to redefine how we can connect to our inner divinity (or "source"), so we can feel connected on an energetic/intuitive level with all there is -- both the seen and unseen.

Friday (Nov. 18th): theMoon remainsinprotective, introverted Cancer until 10:14pm EST (see Wednesday evening for details).

Friday late morning, a challenging Mercury/Neptune aspect becomes exact at 11:04am EST. We started to feel this aspect build from Wednesday on; it will be strong until Sunday. This aspect asks us to stretch ourselves and grow. 

We may experience a lack of clarity and objectivity. We might make embarrassing errors, neglect important details, or carry some delusions now. Our lack of clarity may make it difficult for others to understand us. 

We are more imaginative now, and easily swayed by the opinions of others. We can be highly creative and inspired under this influence, but also overly sensitive, touchy, or impractical. 

It can be hard to follow routines. Concentrating on monotonous tasks and work (or study that involves attention to detail or rote learning) may also be challenging at this time. As best as you can, be compassionate with yourself and others during these 5 days.

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or personal planets) in 6-12 degrees of Sagittarius, Pisces, Gemini and Virgo? If so, you are more affected by this aspect. This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Gemini, Virgo or Pisces (Mercury is the ruler of Gemini and Virgo; Neptune rules Pisces).

Friday at 5:02pm EST, we enter a Moon void of course (VoC). that lasts a little over 5 hours, until 10:14pm EST. Use this intuitive time to connect with loved ones on a deep emotional level. Enjoy the ability to be emotionally authentic and caring. As always with a Moon VoC, as best as you can, don't start anything brand-new, stick to routine things, or simply go with the flow. You may also want to plan Friday evening ahead of time ;-)

Friday at 10:14pm EST, the Moon moves into fun and attention-loving Leo, where it will journey until Monday early morning. We may lack objectivity and struggle with backing down or compromising. This Moon placement also starts the build-up towards the last Quarter Moon (which, will be exact Monday very early morning...)

We all love to be admired -- or at the very least acknowledged -- for our greatness :-) So hand out some compliments -- let people know how proud you are of them, tell them how much you love them. Come from the heart in this and all other things... be honest and authentic, as best you can. 

Fun, games and romance are a big part of this energy as well. You might also enjoy spending time with little ones. If there are no "outer children" around, how about getting in touch with your "inner child" -- it's definitely easier for the next two days. What are you most grateful for today? What would be heaps and heaps of fun? What would be so much fun, you let out a tiny squeak, just thinking of it? 

Saturday (Nov. 19th): the Moon remains in fun and attention-loving Leo all day (see Friday late evening for details).

Saturday evening, an opportune Venus/Neptune aspect becomes exact at 6:03pm EST. We started to feel this aspect from Thursday night on; it will be strong until Monday. This is an opportunity for compassion and kindness in our social and work-related interactions. We are more attuned to the subtleties of human interaction, and are more inclined to naturally cooperate with others. 

We tend to "feel" each other on an energetic level now, a sensitive approach is therefore recommended. This is also an opportunity for imaginative or romantic interactions. Remember: opportunities are openings; they aren't necessarily handed to us -- we have to "take" them and make something of them.

Do you have your Ascendent, Career Point (or any personal planets) in 7-11 degrees of Capricorn, Pisces, Scorpio or Taurus? If so, you may be more aware of this opportunity.This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Taurus, Libra or Pisces (Venus is the ruler of Taurus and Libra; Neptune rules Pisces).

Saturday at 11:38pm EST, after a 5-month retrograde, Neptune comes to a halt in 9 degrees of Pisces and starts to move forward again. The emotional nature of Neptune feels confusing and overwhelming at times. As Neptune will be moving through Pisces until 2025, our understanding of interconnectedness is going to grow; our collective spiritual and emotional sides will slowly evolve. 

We can see how connected we are to our Higher Self/The Universe/Source. What's more, we have an opportunity to dissolve any barriers between us and our Soul's guidance. Are we sensing our Soul's desire for love and oneness to the fullest? Are we connecting to our intuition? Is anything keeping us from experiencing the flow of life? 

As Neptune slowly starts to pick up speed again, it will bring our focus back to the outside world. We are now ready to implement the things we have been connecting to internally for the past 5 months. What did you discover about your feelings and your intuition?

Do you have your Ascendent, your Career point or any of your personal planets in 7-11 degrees of Pisces, Gemini, Virgo or Sagittarius? If you do, you may feel the effects of the Neptune station more than others. 

This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Pisces (Neptune rules Pisces): This is a great time to use what you learned in the last 5 months about your connection to Source -- and perhaps to allow yourself to connect more fully to the flow of life, and let yourself be inspired — even more than most other people.

Sunday (Nov. 20th): the Moon remains in fun and attention-loving Leo all day (see Friday late evening for details).

Sunday, Chiron starts its station. It is slowing down as it gets ready, after its 5-month retrograde phase, to move forward again on Dec. 1st. We will feel the effects of its station until Dec. 11th; its energies are more exalted during this period. 

Chiron is the wounded healer; in Pisces, our attention is guided towards our emotional and spiritual wounds. Chiron represents our inner insecurities, those self-conscious and wounded places. Chiron also represents the inner wound of abandonment and our need to "make it on our own".  

We are invited to approach these wounds on a holistic level, to heal them such that others are healed thereby. This is accomplished very simply and naturally when we work with the true beauty and strength of this energy: Compassion. Having compassion for our own wounds heals them and allows healing compassion for the wounds we now see in others. 

What emotional or spiritual sore spots could you acknowledge? What needs your compassion/love? What needs to heal? At a different level, this time could also see an increased emphasis on water as a global and environmental issue. 

For those of you who want to have a better understanding of your personal healing journey, feel free to get the recording of my recent Chiron-workshop: "Healing with Astrology" Click here for more info

Those of us with personal planets and points (ASC or MC) in 18-23 degrees of Pisces, Virgo, Gemini and Sagittarius will feel this station more strongly.

A head's up for next Monday (Nov. 21st): At 3:33am EST,the last Quarter Moon in Leo becomes exact, and we are entering a Moon void of course (VoC). for an hour, until 4:34am EST. At that timethe Moon moves into detail-oriented, practical Virgo, where it will journey until Wednesday afternoon. At 4:22pm EST, the Sun changes signs from Capricorn to Sagittarius, where it will journey until Dec. 21st.More about all the details in next week’s forecast ;-)

When I read this, I immediately wondered if one result of the election would be to abolish the Electoral College (and taking our power back from them).

Thank you for reaching out, Angela! It is definitely possible that the Electoral College might no longer exist by the end of the Pluto transit through Capricorn. There are a lot of things that might change in the next 15 years in regards to politics...especially in the US, since we have Pluto in Capricorn natally ;-) We are definitely invited to take our power back, however we also need to understand how powerful we each are, especially when we stand in our strength that comes from being centered and from a place of love. I believe taking our power back from a place of fear and defiance is not going to get us what we want.
