“Queen of Pentacles” by Priscilla Marden www.horsewarriors.com
Can you see the tear this Queen of Earth is shedding? So much grief circulating planet Earth at this time. Prayers and support for all who have been left homeless by the chaos of the weather and wars. The astrological configurations this week are gentler than previous weeks. May we catch our collective breathe.

Full Moon realizations continue to flood you today. Mercury, planetary ruler of communications, new ideas, aligns with the North Node that guides your future destiny. It’s a day of logistics and making decisions about the next step you are ready to take. And there is a friendly trine of the practical Taurus Moon to Juno in Capricorn, both earth signs, so this too supports making decisions in regards to your key personal and professional relationships.

Good news! A sextile between Mars and Jupiter signifies a general feeling of optimism and the energy and enthusiasm to move forward or simply enjoy a feeling of well being and hope. We also have to navigate this: a tense square of Moon to Mars potentially manifests as a quick rise in tempers that can lead to more openness, directness and honesty. And as Chiron heads back into forward motion from its retrograde, much of the therapy, healing work, creative initiatives you’ve been dreaming for the past 5 months will now start to really pay off.

A gratefully received grand trine forms between Mercury in Libra~harmonious dialogue~to Chiron in Aquarius~the healing power of friendship~to Moon in Gemini~emotional curiosity. This day holds so much promise for supportive teamwork, openness to new viewpoints even changing your point of view, and in general, just a delightfully social day. As the gregarious Moon makes a square to Uranus in Pisces~spontaneous emotional eruptions~be a counselor to someone in need or reach out for support to help you through.

One possibility today when the Moon conjuncts Jupiter in Gemini, is that you may have moments of mood swings, and feel like a pendulum swinging from mild mania to deep depression and back again. Just be aware this is an energetic in the collective Field, affecting each of us in various intensities. Use appropriate tools to balance yourself. Visit your favorite bookstore (Gemini’s domain), take a drive with a friend to download the pent up emotion (Gemini loves travel, movement, talk therapy). And with the Moon/Jupiter conjunction in a helpful trine to solution-minded Saturn, and in an opposition to visionary and compassionate Venus in Sagittarius, real solutions and understanding can arise.

A watery trine between Scorpio Sun and Cancer Moon graces our heavenly field today. We are truly graced by the planets and we can work with that planetary Grace more consciously. Cancer Moon is all about family, home and our deep soul memory. The Scorpio Sun signifies going deeper, investigating issues, longing for greater intimacy. So cuddle up with beloveds or with your favorite blanket and just settle into HOME, be that a place or a person or a pup.

It’s a working Saturday. We have a tense T-square today between Moon in Cancer~moody, secretive~and Mercury in Libra~desire to make peace~and Juno in Capricorn~those partnerships to which you have responsibilities. This dynamic makes for potential confrontations within families, working on home improvement projects but not without discussion, creating new options and strategies to solve issues.

Today marks a key sky oracle day: Sun squares Neptune, Ceres opposes Uranus, and Mercury squares Juno late today and tomorrow. Let’s break this down. Sun in Scorpio~always delving, at times obsessed, interested in going deeper~squares off with Neptune in Aquarius, compassionate, caring and friendly to all. There may be a tug of war between keeping things detached or being unnecessarily attached. Or visa versa. With Ceres~mothering, nurturing, food issues~opposing Uranus~sudden breakdowns or breatkthroughs~caregiving on all levels in moving into new terrain. There comes that moment when all parents must release their offspring. Or the kids have to move out. And finally as Mercury~communications~squares off with Juno~our partners and partnerships, it’s just one more planetary aspect that carries the same theme as all of the above. Moving out of the old and onto the new.
Mon Nov 25
It’s a pinpointed day with two exact conjunctions. As Moon~intuition~Pallas Athene~creative brilliance, both in Leo~sign of artists and just being creative~spend time in your creative laboratory, be that the kitchen, the garage, your studio, your heart. The Mercury/Saturn conjunction spawns serious, realistic conversations, the signing of contracts, a focused mind.
The beckoning future field of Joy is being created through each of us right now. It is time to become even more conscious of what you want to create in your life and for our beloved Earth community. It is time to live more fully, openly, gratefully the light and gift of your unique mastery. You are one of a kind.
