Full Sun~Full Moon

Where to begin. Like many of you, I am working daily to understand what are the forces at work, what are the ground-breaking, unprecedented shifts taking place in our world? Is this a replay of an old world order trying to take root again, or is there a chance that a new collaborative, more inclusive world will emerge? It is in our hands. It will be in your hands. Each of you has a role to play, a service to render, a vote, a responsibility to lead the way, in the way of your choosing, to this new world, reimagined, re-envisioned. The current Shakespearean drama unfolding with the President-elect as he seeks to build his team makes me feel I am back in the times of brute politics, perhaps the Spanish court, the French Revolution, the Russian empire. Interesting to observe. Hold to the Light.
The energy of this particular Full Moon is tied deeply to how we are all navigating the political earthquake of last week. That, to me, is why this is a SuperMoon. Libra can help us regain balance, seeking both justice and negotiation, and the influence of the Aries Moon helps us discover the source of our own Source wisdom about how we need to proceed. How will you act, not react, at this time? What will shining your Light brighter mean for you? The outer voices are many at this time. What actions will you be guided to take that arise from your own Source wisdom? This is a key question to contemplate at this time. Hold to your Light.
I repost this from last week’s Star Signposts: “Using July 4th as the birthdate of our nation, the United States of America is a sidereal Gemini nation. Qualities of Gemini include being curious, accepting, and information-seeking or seeing things as black and white, good and evil, prone to polarization. It’s no surprise our country is manifesting this split throughout our electorate in daily discussions happening everywhere, and now, front and center in this Presidential Election of 2016. Part of the larger purpose of America is to heal and build bridges for our deepest splits, find common ground or even discover a third way that unifies our electorate, finding ways to bridge to our splits rather than splinter apart. The real power to change is always in the hands of the citizens. Protect what you love, stand up for what is kind and compassionate.”
This week, we experience a course-shifting transit of Neptune to the South Lunar Node on November 17. Neptune is the mysterious, imaginative, spiritual planet that exposes both deception as well as our higher aspirations, the Greater Good. As this compassionate planet makes an historic transit to the South Lunar Node (symbolic of leaving behind our past habits and history), clearly our entire planet is leaving behind long- established rules and dying divisions, like white supremacy, to shift toward more inclusiveness of all. That is the universal cosmic shift and trend, literally supported by the Universe. This is why I retain hope. This is where I place my faith.
Here is a brief synopsis of the Full Moon characteristics that hold true to every Full Moon from my from my friend and sidereal colleague Nick Anthony Fiorenza at Lunar Planner.
“The Full Moon marks the point of coition in the lunar cycle, the climax, the point of excitement, a time of celebration. The day just after the Full Moon is a time for the realization of the theme to emerge, of what the activities of the first half of the lunar cycle, culminating into the enthusiasm of the Full Moon, are really about. Relax and allow this realization to occur. There is no need to force it as it surfaces on its own.”
Note: I write my posts according to the Lunar cycles, posting on the New, First Quarter, Full and Third Quarter Moons. If you work with and within the natural flow of time and supportive cosmic energies, your life will flow with more ease and grace. My interpretations and predictions are based on the true sidereal astronomical alignments.

And you can always read about me star weather predictions from previous week’s at Star Signposts.
Mon November 14
Full Moon in sidereal Libra/Aries: The energy of this particular Full Moon is tied deeply to how we are all navigating the political earthquake of last week. That, to me, is why this is a SuperMoon. Libra can help us regain balance, seeking both justice and negotiation, and the influence of the Aries Moon helps us discover the source of our own Source wisdom about how to proceed. How you are being guided to act, not react, at this time?
Tue November 15
Mars in Capricorn opposite Vesta in Cancer: Focus on organizing your home or business affairs today, including making purchases that support any upgrades you are considering. A fabulous day for very physical housecleaning.
Mercury in Scorpio sextile Mars in Capricorn: This aspect brings alive activism around important ideas emerging in our political circles, and has many discussing their options.
Moon in Taurus square Neptune/Lunar Nodes: Investing financially or physically in your emerging dream and goals is supported by this aspect, or realigning your finances to better fit your spiritual values.
Moon in Taurus opposite Saturn in Scorpio: This aspect happens in the evening hours and can lead to a moment of seriousness or depression, or a feeling of tiredness, wanting to lay down your burdens. Lay down those burdens. Take a soothing bath, give your beloved a foot massage. We all need to be comforted at this time.
Wed November 16
Moon in Gemini opposite Venus in Sagittarius: It’s a day for bantering ideas, stimulating conversations, either in a playful way or, given our current cultural splits, vehement polarized discussions.
Thu November 17
Neptune/South Lunar Node conjunction: I had a dream, out of the blue, several months ago, alerting me to this aspect. That had never happened before. So I started attuning to what today’s transit might mean. Neptune is the mysterious, imaginative, spiritual planet that exposes both deception as well as our higher aspirations, the Greater Good. As this compassionate planet makes an historic transit to the South Lunar Node (symbolic of leaving behind our past), clearly our entire planet is leaving behind long-established rules and dying divisions, like white supremacy, to shift toward more inclusiveness of all. That is the universal cosmic shift and trend, literally supported by the Universe. This is why I retain hope. This is where I place my faith.
Pallas Athene in Capricorn sextile Uranus in Pisces: This aspect brings exciting developments and out of the blue possibilities to emerging business plans or creative projects. It encourages you to take a risk and try something new.
Gemini Moon square Jupiter opposite Pluto: This highly political aspect increases the current Shakespearean drama unfolding with the President-elect as he seeks to build his team. I truly feel I am back in the times of the Spanish court, or the French Revolution, or, the Russian empire. Interesting to observe. Hold to the Light.
Fri November 18
Mercury in Scorpio square Neptune/South Lunar Node: The square aspect leads to decision-making or a shocking event that wakes you up, like a secret being exposed, the influence of Scorpio and Neptune.
Moon in Gemini square Uranus/Ceres in Pisces: This aspect happens at sunrise and sparks sudden shifts in your plans or usual routine, like spilled coffee which can mess with your day. Move with caution.
Moon in Cancer trine Sun in Scorpio: This monthly phase in our current SolLunar cycle offers a moment of grace and serendipitous happenings. Cancer and Scorpio are water signs, which govern our emotions. Feelings are easily shared, tears easily shed.
Sat November 19
Moon/Vesta conjunction in Cancer: Make it a home-focused day, if you have things that need to be done. You can plough through many projects, barely feeling the need for a break.
Moon in Cancer trine Mercury/Saturn in Scorpio: Bring order to your family finances, or bring intimacy and depth to familial conversations.
Sun November 20
Moon in Cancer: It’s a relaxed kind of Sunday, as we prepare for tomorrow’s more decisive and action-oriented Last Quarter Moon. This introverted Cancer Moon makes a cooperative trine to experimental Uranus/Ceres in Pisces and opposition to designer Pallas Athene. Reorganize your space, take more risks in your creative choices, like trying a new paint color, based on what makes you happy. Your kiddos might ask you to help them get caught up on their homework, seeking your eternal ear of support and care. Homework is so much more than homework.
