Nov 30 2008

By afternoon, Moon in Capricorn entering the orb of sextile Uranus and trine Saturn, but most of the attention today is likely the Venus Jupiter conjunction, exact at midnight. They are visible after sunset in the west. Tempering, or balancing, in a good way is Venus Saturn trine concurrent with Jupiter Saturn trine. Today is likely a day of relationships, both the passionate and practical sides of them; heart to heart the foibles and fortunes of them.

The Birthcard of the day is the Three of Hearts, a double Mercury, with an Ace of Hearts inside and a Queen of Clubs outside. Paraphrasing: the heart has reasons that reason does not understand. Mark Twain, Winston Churchill, Abbie Hoffman, and of course Samuel Clemens are incarnational expressions of this Card, or visa versa.

Nov 29 2008

Don't make any life altering decisions till after 10 am PST when Moon emerges from Void of Course into Capricorn. At the same time, she is conjunct Pluto and trine Vesta. Possibility of deep and intense emotions, good time to get in touch with instinctual feelings. Longing for home or that feeling of home and all it represents? Moon-Pluto is the "therapist's transit", superficiality will not do. Maybe hold off on that life altering decision from 10:01 am a bit longer, till this evening after the volcano has cooled off and solidified. Remember that not all volcanoes are explosive, some just flow magma from the depths that eventually becomes fertile soil.

Today's Birthcard is the Four of Hearts, a Neptune implementation of a Mercury core, with a Four of Spades inside and a Ten of Spades outside. Jacques Chirac, Johannes Kepler, Louis Pasteur, and John Keats are various incarnations expressing through this Card.

Nov 28 2008

Moon in Sagittarius will be T-squaring the Saturn/Uranus opposition today, which could indicate a restless depression overlaid with and distinct from the intensity of the Sun/Mercury/Mars trio; fortunately Venus and Jupiter are close to conjunction (exact Sunday night) and that conjunction is both trine Saturn and sextile Uranus. This would indicate a different flavor, one of balance and good luck. Maybe you have noticed that days with mixed signals are more common than days with clear signals; further all these combos transit your Natal chart in ways obviously beyond the capabilities of this generalized weather report. Sometime in the future there may be Archetypal mood-ring web pages; until then, it is a good thing to get to know the nuances of one's own Natal chart---see the links on the left. Moon goes into Void of Course at 5 pm PST till 10 Sat morning, so another chill fri nite is in order.

Today's Birthcard is the Five of Hearts, a Saturn implementation of a Venus core, with a Four of Diamonds inside and a Five of Clubs outside. Jon Stewart, Randy Newman, Grace Slick, and Michael Dukakis are incarnational expressions of this Card.

Nov 27 2008 New Moon

Pluto has just entered Capricorn, will be there thru 2024, and Uranus goes direct today. The last time Pluto was in Capricorn was the late 1700s. Something big happened then. Changes, more changes with some mojo to back them up. The slow brew of evolution becomes revolution in breaking down old structures and rebuilding new structures, which will eventually become old structures in need of being broken down and rebuilt. Those who have learned from history are doomed to watch those who have not learned from history repeat it.

Speaking of--- and in time for T-day: one of the bloggers here would like to and is offering a heart-felt apology to the Indigenous Peoples of North America for what my ancestors did to your ancestors, directly or in complicity. By the act colonization with the following acts of relocation, religious conversion, habitat destruction, and outright genocide---unfathomable loss and pain has been caused. There is no returning, but there is an opportunity to learn, reconcile, listen to the wisdom of the elders. To all our relations.

New Moon in Sagittarius is conjunct Sun exact at 8:54 am PST, conjunct Mercury, exact at 11:31 am PST, and conjunct Mars, exact at 1:56 pm PST. The tricky part of the trio of Sun/Mercury/Mars is differentiating emotions from intellect and the collective reality, one could be quite convinced what one feels is fact, and damn the facts...and with the extra emphasis by the Moon sweeping over, doubly so. Likely to be quite emotional today, with a feeling (hah!) of something uncorked, and moving forward.

The Birthcard of the day is the Six of Hearts, a double Mars, with a a Four of Clubs inside and a Three of Diamonds outside. Various incarnations expressing this Card are Richard Dreyfuss, Isaac Newton, Annie Lenox, and a spectacular example of the shadow side of this Archetype: Karl Rove.

Nov 26 2008 Moon Void of Course

Our shadowy friend the Moon will be Void of Course from 4 in the morning till a bit after 9 in the evening, PST, soooo chill today. If there is a distinct lack of mojo, don't panic, it will pass by later this evening. Good day to reflect, read, wrap things up rather than starting them. Go fly a kite. Just because. But not in a lightning storm.

The Birthcard of the day is Seven of Hearts, a Venus expression of a Mercury core, with an Eight of Hearts inside and an Ace of Spades outside. Varied incarnations of this card are Julia Roberts, Rich Little, Tina Turner, and surprisingly to some, Bill Gates.

Nov 25 2008

With Mercury exactly conjunct Sun this morning and Mars nearby, look for sharp intellect, biting wit. Or they may look for you. Later in the day, things are likely to mellow out, with Moon sextile Venus, exact by 5:19 pm PST and trine Uranus, exact by 10:47 PM PST. The flavor is likely to be nurturing, emotionally connected, "warm fuzzy", with the potential downside of being too passive, as in "feed me, nurture me", assisted by a Moon square Chiron shortly after dusk. Later in the evening the may be a flavor of excitement, aliveness, with possible pleasant surprises. In the middle of the night, Moon will be sextile midpoint between the Saturn Jupiter trine, so there is potential for a night of good dreams.

The Birthcard of the day is the emotionally powerful Eight of Hearts, a Neptune implementation of a Jupiter core, with a Seven of Spades inside and a Seven of Hearts outside. Various examples of expression of this card are Joe DiMaggio, Richard Gere, Madeline Kahn, and the one and only John Cleese.

Nov 24 2008

After being exact sextile Pluto at 9:45 am PST, Moon briefly goes Void of Course and enters Scorpio a hair before 10 am PST. The morning is likely to be a good time for plumbing the depths, exploring mysteries, and rejecting traditional dogma. Later in the day, our friend the Moon is taking a break from any significant aspects. Over the next couple of weeks, Venus will be in the orb of Conjunct Jupiter, so warm fuzzies will be a flavor added to the mix, mellowing some, but not all of the edge from the Mercury/Sun/Mars trio induced intense intellect.

The Birthcard of today is the Nine of Hearts
a double Saturn with a "veiled" double Venus. Brigitte Bardot, Hillary Clinton, Gwyneth Paltrow are different examples of this Birthcard.

Sunday, November 23, 2008

Nov 23 2008

There is a loose trio conjunction of Mercury, Sun, and Mars for the next week, so there is likely to be a sharp, intense intellect permeating the daily flavors.

How were your dreams? Moon/Venus overnight were conducive to harmonious experiences. Riding on that afterglow, Moon will be square Jupiter, exact at 4pm PST and trine Neptune, exact at 5:30pm the day has good potential. If the day were a person, s/he would be the optimistic dreamer of ideals.

Dreams tonight may have a flavor of deep, profound emotions, with a tendency towards the mysterious or the occult thanks to Moon entering the orb of sextile Pluto after midnight.

Today's Birthcard is the Ten of Hearts, a Jupiter implementation of a Mars core, with a Jack of Clubs inside and a Five of Spades outside. Jane Fonda, Harpo Marx, J. K. Rowling, and Phil Donahue are various examples of expression of this Card.

Nov 22 2008

If you had any dreams of compulsion or power struggles, relax, was Moon square Pluto last night, now passing. Later in the night Moon was sextile Sun, so the residual effects of that would be indictive of a good time for conjugal relations, good for yin-yang communication. Moon in Libra is sextile Mars, exact at 8:56 am PST, so generally, the flavor today is likely one of emotional clarity, balance and expression---forward but not too aggressive. A good evening for socializing, and should be nice(r) dreams, as Moon is heading towards square Venus, exact in the middle of the night. Have fun, and play safe.

The Birthcard of the day is the Jack of Hearts, a Venus expression of a Jupiter core, a source card with the same inside and outside, all JH all the time. Charles De Gaulle, Ahnold the Governator, T.S. Elliot, Uri Geller, and George Gershwin are various expressions of this Card.

Nov 21 2008

After passing opposite Uranus while you were asleep, the Moon in Virgo is conjunct Saturn and trine Jupiter, exact at 6:16 am PST. Later, Moon will be sextile Mercury, exact at 9:16 pm PST. The likely flavor for the day, after digesting some restless or possibly surprising dreams is one of practical introspection, but with a bit of an edge, wanting to do something---less metaphor and more hands on. After dark, we will likely be more sociable, and communicative with others.

The Birthcard of the day is the Queen of Hearts, a double Neptune with a Ten of Spades inside and Nine of Clubs outside. She can be emotionally, er, poignant. Edith Piaf and Catherine Zeta-Jones would be examples.

Thursday, November 20, 2008

Nov 20 2008

Most of the day we will be feeling Moon in Virgo trine Venus, exact at 10:45 am PST. There is likely to be a tendency towards aesthetics, beauty, eros---good vibes all around, good for relational AND sociable. After dusk, there may be a shift towards a bit more of a loner (in a good way--- alone, but not lonely), a practical "get it done" kind of meme as Moon enters the orb of conjunct Saturn and trine Jupiter. More on that tomorrow.

The Birthcard of the day is the powerful King of Hearts, a Mars expression of a  Mercury core, with a Two of Clubs inside and a Nine of Spades outside. Examples are Joe Biden and Jackie Kennedy/Onassis.

Nov 19 2008 Moon Last Quarter

If you had weird dreams last night, don't worry about it, was Moon opposite Neptune, now passing.
Through the day, Moon will be sweeping through square Mercury exact at 6:49am PST, square Sun exact at 1:31pm PST, and square Mars exact at 10:14pm PST. There will be a brief Moon Void of Course from 4:45pm till 5:15pm PST when Moon will enter Virgo from our perspective. Just to deepen things up a bit, Moon will be trine Pluto, exact right before the Void of Course. In the morning, it might be a good idea to punt in the emotional realm---don't shift to match, or stuff them, just chill till later. Generally, if things are in the groove, there will be more energy today, but anything out of sorts has the potential for irritation. Intense and sensitive, stay away from sharp objects.

The Birthcard today is the Ace of Clubs, a Mercury expression of a Venus core, paired with the Two of Hearts. It is one of two pairs of Cards that trade places back and forth within each pair. Various expressions of this Card are Jodie Foster, Ray Charles, Larry King, and Meg Ryan.

Tuesday, November 18, 2008

Nov 18 2008

With the exception of the Moon, we have a continuation of the transits from the last few days. The one and only Moon will be opposite Chiron today, exact at 4pm PST. This portends to a day of recap, reflection on the last few, with an added kick or sensitivity from Moon opposite Chiron. What did you learn, what did you "get", what is worth integrating?

The Birthcard of the day is the Two of Clubs, a Uranus implementation of a Saturn core, with an Ace of Spades inside and a King of Hearts outside. Various examples of this card are C.J. Jung, Beethoven, Mel Brooks, and Mick Jagger.

Sunday, November 16, 2008

Nov 17 2008

Mercury is square Neptune today, look out for munged communications. Venus is conjunct Juno today, possibly adding a tinge of one's own needs versus one's relationship. Before dawn, Moon will be trine Sun, then Void of course from 6am PST till 1pm PST when she enters (from our perspective) Leo. Mrowrrrr. The telegraph may swap a few dots and dashes, so hold off till afternoon for important communications. Moon will be trine Mars exact at 3pm PST. Predawn is likely to be good for conjugal relationships, then chill till afternoon, when there is likely to be more mojo.

Today's Birthcard is the Three of Clubs, a Saturn implementation of a Mars core, with a Five of Diamonds inside and a King of Diamonds outside. An singular example of the Three of Clubs would be JFK.

Nov 16 2008 Another Grand Trine

Today we have a "kite" formation with Moon in Cancer opposite Jupiter while she is trine Mercury and Uranus, who are also trine each other. As there are multiple players here, there will be a zone of exactness amongst these for a few hours after dusk.

Excluding natural disasters, the general flavor of the day is a good one--- being in touch with feelings; grounded, progressive thoughts; magnanimous relations---a renniasance day. Empathy to those experiencing hardships and turmoil. If you are feeling good, it would be a good time to reach out in/with a sense of community.

Today's Birthcard is the Four of Clubs, a Mars expression of a Jupiter core, with a Five of clubs inside, and a Six Hearts outside. Various examples of expression of this Card are Sophia Loren, Amelia Earhart, Chuck Berry, and Spike Jones.

Nov 15 2008 Deep Moon

Our friend the Moon will be opposite Pluto, exact at 11am PST, then Void of course till noon PST, when entering Cancer. After dusk she will be opposite Venus, exact st 6:30pm PST. We also have Mercury sextile Saturn and trine Uranus. Maybe a bit of electricity in the air, but more introspective than flamboyant.
In the morning there is a possibility of deep, probing emotional experiences, without resolution. Later in the day, expect a more sociable mood to appear, on the muted side of extravagant.

The Birthcard today is the Five of Clubs, a Mercury expression of a Saturn core, with a Five of Hearts inside and a Four of Clubs outside. The almost obligatory celebrity reference for this card is Al Gore.

Nov 14 2008

Sun is approaching conjunct Mars, and Venus is moving away from conjunct Pluto, and Saturn is just past opposite Uranus. Our friend, the shadowy Moon in Gemini will be T-square Uranus and Saturn, exact 6pm to 7pm PST. Moon is also trine Neptune, exact later around 10pm PST.
Take extra care in relationship, there may be tendencies to feeling alone even when close to someone; and desiring new connections even when close to someone. It would be good to channel that into something creative rather than something destructive---movement, Art. Later, a good evening for dreaming.

The Birthcard of today is the Six of Clubs, a Neptune implementation of a Saturn core, with an Eight of Spades inside and a Two of diamonds outside. James Baker, Bob Dole, Oscar Wilde, and Jay Leno are examples of different expressions of this Card.

Nov 13 2008 Mooning Mars

As Sun in Scorpio squares Neptune in Aquarius, Moon moves to exact opposite Mars 9am PST, then Void of Course from 9am till noon PST, when she enters Gemini (or appears to enter Gemini from our perspective). Be aware of tendencies of irritability, reactivity. These will pass, hopefully without damage. It is best to move slowly today, as brashness, sudden reactions can make us accident prone if we are not being present, mindful---and unthinkingly take risks. Be careful when on the road, 69% of the other drivers are caused by accidents.

The Birthcard today is the Seven of Clubs, a Saturn implementation of a Uranus core, with an Eight of Diamonds inside and a Jack of Spades outside. Robin Williams, Mike Meyers, Bill Clinton, and Miles Davis are examples of the expression of this Card, sometimes known in a reductionistic way as the melancholy genius card.

Nov 12 2008 Busy Grand Trine

Venus is just pulling away, but is still in the orb of conjunct Pluto. Besides being full Moon tonight---10pm PST, the Moon is busy in Taurus today. Exact opposite Mercury 9am PST, into a grand trine with Jupiter and Saturn exact by early evening, sextile Uranus at the same time; and square Neptune later, exact by 11pm PST. In the morning, passion, emotions, and feelings are likely to win out over logic and reason. But, good for delving deeply into one's patterns through the language of emotion. Along with the well deserved reputation of Full Moon, later in the day there may be a tendency to a feeling of being in charge, of well being---good for rounding out and resolving what came up earlier in the day. Should be a dreamy evening. Particularly today, avoid self medication or chemical stimulation, and let the dreamy otherworldliness of Neptune T-squaring Moon and Sun take you places with a clear head. Lots of Archetypal Neptune in the air. Could be mystical, spiritual, enlightening, or delusional. Depends on you.

The Birthcard of the day is the Eight of Clubs, a Mars expression of a Neptune core, the power of knowledge, a source card with the same inside and outside, all 8C all the time. It is Neil Young's birthday and of course birthcard. Thomas Dolby, Robert Redford, and David Copperfield, and Rajan Sankaran are other examples of various expressions of this birthcard.

Nov 11 2008 Armistice Day

The Sun in Scorpio is sextile both, and exactly midpoint between a trine of Jupiter in Capricorn and Saturn in Virgo. Extending another sextile to Jupiter is Uranus in Pisces, also trine Sun. So, for the 90th anniversary of Armistice Day, there is considerable harmonious support of the Uranus/Saturn opposition. Change, upheval of the old, outmoded structures, with reconstruction towards support of a higher level of coherence.

Venus will be exactly conjunct Pluto 10pm PST, but throughout the day, we will be feeling the trine of Moon on/to/with both of them, which will be exact right before 11am PST, when the Moon will briefly go Void of Course from 11am till noon PST.

The Birthcard of the day is Nine of Clubs, a Venus expression of Saturn, with a Queen of Hearts inside and a Six of Diamonds outside. Ella Fitzgerald, Demi Moore, Leonardo DiCaprio, and Kurt Vonnegut are examples of different expressions of this Birthcard.

November 10 2008

Moon is now in Aries. During the day and this evening Moon will square Jupiter and sextile Neptune. Moon/Neptune - permeable boundaries with others, easier time of sharing feelings, listening, and empathy. Can be a tendency to overdo with Moon/Jupiter. Sun is being aspected by Mercury, Jupiter, Neptune, and Uranus. Anything to do with your ego self, what you identify with, projects you are involved in are associated to the Sun. Sun conjunct Mercury - adding mental acuity, attention to details, communication of ideas. Sun sextile Jupiter -  confidence, cooperation, optimism. Sun trine Uranus - productive, creative, innovative. In contrast to these aspecting planets to the Sun, Sun square Neptune can be the flip side to the confidence to put yourself and your ideas out there. Sun/Neptune can be experienced as a lack of confidence in your abilities, feelings of failure, wanting to avoid situations where you feel inadequate. 

Awareness is a key to navigating in astralfog. Get to know the transits, how long they last, and ways to express them that are the least disruptive. Better conscious than not when it comes to experiencing these planetary archetypes.

November 9 2008 Waxing Moon

Moon will be Void of Course for an hour this morning between 8:30 and 9:30 am PST. Today the main aspects for the Moon will be square Pluto (which is part of the Venus/Pluto conjunct) and trine Mars (which is part of the Sun/Mars conjunct). Moon/Pluto will be exact at 8:30 am PST. Moon/Pluto may be experienced as being pulled into old patterns and emotional issues. As the Moon gets closer to Full Moon you may experience a heightened sense of the transits.
Longer transits - You may feel a strong drive to get things done (Sun/Mars) and possible relational tension with Venus/Pluto. Sun is also sextile Jupiter and sextile Saturn. Sun/Jupiter can bring out a desire to be magnanimous. Sun/Saturn - support for seeing projects through to completion. Uranus/Saturn opposition is still a strong transit for changing outmoded structures. 

Today is Jack of Clubs. This card has a Jack of Diamonds on the inside and a ten of hearts on the outside. Its planetary influences are Venus and Uranus. Oprah Winfrey has a Jack of Clubs birthcard. You can see her desire for knowledge (clubs), desire to communicate that which is of value (diamonds), and her ease with groups - sharing passion and compassion (hearts). Elton John, Shirley Temple, Ben Affleck share a Jack of Clubs birthday. Jacks are highly creative!!

Nov 8 2008 Contrasting Moon

Our friend the Moon will be trine the Sun in the morning and sextile Jupiter (which is also sextile Sun) around noon, followed in the afternoon by conjunct Uranus (1:40pm PST) and opposite Saturn (2:30pm PST). Be aware of possible upsets in the mid-afternoon. Likely that there will be pleasant vitality, with good relations in the morning, contrasted with a surprise or upset in feelings, especially in close relationships and perception that you are alone, or feelings of isolation, some type of withdrawing from others later in the day. Here's the adventure, can you discern which of these you perceive, and can you differentiate and choose what you focus on and experience? With Venus moving closer to Pluto and Sun catching up with Mars, today may be a preview of relational issues that will present themselves in the next couple of weeks. See yesterday's post.

The Birthcard of the day is the intuitive Queen of Clubs, a Mercury expression of a Mars core, with a Three of Hearts inside and a Ten of Diamonds outside. Will Ferrell, Nicholas Sarkozy, Cher, and Alan Alda are examples of different expressions of this Birthcard.

November 7 2008 Moon relating

Moon will be trine Mercury this morning then later in the day will trine Sun. These soft aspects will be conducive to communicating how you feel to others and experiencing a sense of balance between your logical and emotional self. Towards the evening Moon will be closer to conjunct Uranus which can be an upset in feelings, especially in close relationships. As Moon conjuncts Uranus it will also be opposing Saturn - perception that you are alone, or feelings of isolation, some type of withdrawing from others. The later Moon transits of the day will contrast the earlier feelings of clarity and productive communication. In the background to the Moon's activities, Sun is loose conjunct Mars - moving projects forward, asserting your ego self, perhaps wanting recognition. If not moving something forward it can feel like bottled irritability. As Sun is conjuncting Mars it is trine Uranus - this can bring in an aspect of uniqueness or innovative qualities to the projects that you are working with.

Relationships - Venus is close to conjunct Pluto - Take care in how you are working with this intense conjunct. Relationally Venus/Pluto can be experienced as digging up old patterns, jealousies, issues around power - taking each other into the depths. Giving this transit a creative and artistic expression other than talking could be more useful while it is aspecting. This transit will be exact next week so it gives you some time to work with its energy if you choose.

The Birthcard of today is King of Clubs, a double Uranus, with a Two of Spades inside and Eight of Spades outside. This is the card of Joni Mitchell (Nov. 7) and John Lennon (Oct 9). People with this card embody creative perspectives on life - express themselves in unique and impressionable ways. Their Kingly presence belies possible fears within of the unknown represented by the Two of Spades. The healing aspects of the Eight of Spades offers an ally for the King of Clubs as it is a mastery number and as a Spade holds the wisdom of the other suits.

Nov 6 2008 Let the Renissance begin

We shall continue to see the results of the last couple years: a transit of Saturn opposite Neptune followed by Saturn opposite Uranus. Exposing established structures and illusions, then changing the structures. As to shorter cycles, our friend the Moon has continued her cycles and is conjunct Neptune, sextile Venus, and square Mars today. Excluding how these transit/aspect your Natal chart of course, there may be tendencies towards: the veil between the "you" and the "not you" being thinner than usual; social and private/intimate friendship; paradoxically hasty, irritable moods that pass quickly.

Post election we will pen more thoughts on the pitfalls of prediction, including the naive presumption that Archetypal languages somehow can magically make rational the irrational....however, there is one source that has been an accurate mirror for the collective mish-mosh, only missing one presedential election call (in 1916!) ever: bookies. More later.

Today's Birthcard is the Ace of Diamonds, a Jupiter implementation of a Neptune core, with a Two of Diamonds inside and an Ace of Hearts outside.

November 5 2008 Whew!!!

Uranus opposite Saturn, exact yesterday. Change, for the better.

Today and in the next few days and weeks, notice the wording that is present in the comments about this election, about Obama, about the vision for the future, and about the possibilities for the US in relation to other countries. The energies of this transit will be around for awhile.

Uranus and Saturn will be in the orb of each other throughout 2009. Other planets will be effecting this transit as we can see happened on the election day. Pluto has been within the orb (10 degrees) of square Uranus since 2007 and will continue until 2020. It will be exact (less than 1 degree) square 2012 to 2015. Pluto is in the orb (10 degrees) square Saturn from November 2008 to August 2011. It will be exact square November 2009 to August 2010. Richard Tarnas in Cosmos and Psyche elucidates the intensities of the Pluto/Uranus transits as experienced in the French Revolution, the 1930's economic crash that brought in new monetary theories, and other revolutionary events. Saturn/Pluto can be experienced as building pressures and tensions when there is a hard aspect such as conjunction, square, or opposition. This powerful transit of destructive energies can be experienced as abrupt disruptions, deep seated fears of 'other', and conflicts of various proportions if we are unconscious individually or collectively. Pluto embodies the elemental forces of nature - death and rebirth cycles. Combined with the Promethean energies of Uranus and the ideological and structural forms of Saturn these combinations can be profoundly transformative. Tarnas views our era as a "renaissance." The transits of this era were last experienced 500 years ago. Neptune in Aquarius sextile Pluto (which will move from Sagittarius to Capricorn by the end of this year) is a soft aspect to the harder transits - the opportunity for deep spiritual transformation.

Your natal chart is in the midst of the world's planet transits in this incredible era. It will be interesting to see how things unfold as we become more conscious of the archetypal energies.

November 4 2008 Saturn/Uranus Exact

At 5:35 am PST Saturn (18 degrees Virgo) is exact opposition to Uranus (18 degrees Pisces). What aspects of Saturn will be upset through change? What changes will be resisted? What will be the third space from these archetypal energies? It will be interesting to experience the Moon during the Saturn/Uranus opposition, which has been void of course since 10:47 pm last night until 4:01 pm PST. Sun in Scorpio is trine Uranus - an emotional and energetic response to change. Venus/Pluto conjunct - power of emotions in relationship to others. Pluto has to do with power, possessiveness, plunging into the underworld. Venus is square Saturn and square Uranus - this may be expressed as upsets and sudden changes within a relational context - and feelings of being blocked or experiencing limitations. Venus is also sextile Neptune - Venusian ideals and illusions. Mars square Neptune - facing consequences of past actions, evaluation and possible self-doubt of actions taken, weakened energy. Jupiter is sextile Uranus and trine Saturn - opportunity for new ideas, altering plans - realization of responsibilities in the world. Neptune sextile Pluto - opportunity for deep transformation. Mercury will leave Libra today and enter into Scorpio - communications can take on hidden aspects.

Today is a 3 of diamonds. This card has a 6 of hearts as an inside source and a Queen of diamonds as its ally. The power and responsibility of this heart card can inform the indecisive quality of the three. Serving others with what is of value is an attribute of the Queen of diamonds that can guide in finding a beneficent direction.

Monday, November 3, 2008

November 3 2008 Moon/Jupiter day

Moon is approaching Jupiter in Capricorn and will be exact at 2:22 pm PST. Great transit for working in or with groups, great for feeling generous towards others. Moon/Jupiter is trine and sextile the Saturn/Uranus opposition - there is opportunity to support the changes of Uranus energy and support the structures on the Saturn side. Mars is also aspecting the Saturn/Uranus opposition. It is sextile Saturn which can be experienced as sustained energy towards projects and it is trine Uranus - breaking free of situations that feel constrictive or limiting. Neptune is squaring Mars - this can feel like a lack of energy to follow through. Take notice of your own energy to get things done in the next few days. Venus and Pluto (forming a loose conjunct in Sagittarius) are sextile Mercury and sextile Neptune. Ideals are at a heightened position with these transits. Venus is squaring the Saturn/Uranus opposition - this may be experienced as obstacles in relationships and or sudden upsets that are challenging. Neptune in Aquarius which has been retrograde is now direct. You may feel a subtle shift in the collective consciousness, more openness. Neptune is sextile Pluto which is deep spiritual transformation. This relationship between Neptune and Pluto may be experienced as an ally to the Saturn/Uranus tension of change and status quo.

Relationally you may feel very close to friends, lovers, and family (Moon/Jupiter) today with a background sense of Venus square Saturn, Venus square Uranus that there is some blockage or obstacles to face in relationship and that change is in the air.

Today's Birthcard is Four of Diamonds, the foundation in values, a Neptune implementation of a Venus core. Stable as it may be, there is an inner aspect of the Five of Spades and an outer aspect of the Five of Hearts. Fives can embody a Promethean energy of change.

Sunday, November 2, 2008

November 2 2008

Saturn is 18 degrees Virgo and Uranus is 18 degrees Pisces today. It will be exact in terms of degrees and minutes on the morning of November 4th at 5:35 am PST. Be aware of this transit as it moves into an exact position. Strong Promethean energies of change challenge Saturnian limitations and visa versa. Emotions will be peaked on election day as Moon squares Mercury, as Mercury moves from Libra to Scorpio, and as a Venus/Pluto conjunct squares the Uranus/Saturn opposition.

Today Moon is conjunct Juno. This is a good transit for sharing and closeness in your long term relationships. It will be followed by Moon/Jupiter tomorrow - desires to work in or with large groups and feelings of generosity. You will probably feel some of the effects of the Moon/Jupiter towards the late evening. Enjoy these beneficent transits.

The Birthcard today is Five of Diamonds, a Saturn implementation of a Neptune core---a Nine of Diamonds on the inside and a Three of Clubs on the outside. See the mythology of Odin.

November 1 2008 Beyond Moon and Venus

Moon is making it's way from conjunct Venus last night to conjunct Pluto today. See yesterday's blog entry section of The Morning After. If you are having ups and downs in your relationships they may be reflecting the rather erratic emotional path of the Moon over the past few days and the somewhat longer transits of Venus that have to do with Saturn and Uranus. Venus will be moving towards Pluto as well so it will not be surprising to be pulled into some type of angst relationally. Moon will be sextile Neptune and Mercury which is good for expression of feelings and listening to others. This can be an ally in the midst of the other transits if you have things that really need to be expressed.
