ASTROLOGY FOR THE WEEK OF NOV 28-DEC 4 2022




MON NOV 28

The week begins with good intentions, but a Mercury/Mars opposition that perfects on Tuesday suggests that there may be a bit of tension to navigate this week around entering new territory and breaking free of any undermining and swampy influences. Today see’s the Moon in Aquarius sextile Mercury and Venus while trine Mars, conjunct Saturn and square Uranus. This can see a concerted effort to break new ground, make new contacts, reach new agreements, or get certain talks or negotiations on the table. There may be some extra responsibilities to deal with, but there might also be some pleasant surprises that factor into the day. Mercury trine Chiron, sextile Saturn and square Neptune (which stations direct at the end of the week) suggests this week there is a push towards more clarity and confidence, with an emphasis on finding solutions. 


TUES NOV 29

The Moon in late Aquarius is conjunct Saturn, while the Mercury/Mars opposition perfects at 19 degrees. This configuration can be a bit frayed around the edges. However, Mercury sextile Saturn and conjunct Venus can see a good sense of timing and lends some diplomacy to any talks or negotiations that require it. The square Mercury makes to Neptune mirrors that of Mars, both of which illustrate a desire to overcome confusion, weakness, and get into a stronger position, with an eye on long term stability, with positive aspects to Saturn. There may be some reality checks to navigate, and at times, it may be harder to focus amidst loose ends or things that still haven’t been completed. Simplify things where you can. The Moon enters Pisces at 4:15 PM PST, squaring the Sun in Sagittarius. This can see a focus on a myriad of possibilities.


WED NOV 30

The Moon in Pisces squares the Sun, Venus and Mercury in Sagittarius, while also squaring Mars Rx in Gemini, while sextile Uranus. This can see new territory opening up via talks, negotiations, and plans. With Mercury, Venus and Mars all in harmonious aspect to Saturn, there is an eye here on the longterm, and this can highlight partnerships or a team effort of sorts, and trying to work out who and/or what is workable. With the Moon in Pisces sextile Uranus, there’s a certain surrender to change, and a semisquare to Pluto can see some sensitivity to power dynamics early on. There can be some uncertainty but also excitement around potential new partnerships or agreements, but much has been learned through past mistakes or fumbles, so there’s a benefit to having the wisdom of time and experience. The evening see’s a lot to reflect on as new possibilities are opening up, and what is unworkable can be replaced with something more situationally appropriate. 


THURS DEC 1

The Moon in Pisces is conjunct Neptune and Jupiter, while sextile Pluto and square Mercury, Venus and Mars this morning. Venus opposite Mars is a growth oriented aspect that can see opportunities to blend, fuse and integrate complimentary but opposite energies to form a more stable foundation. There can be optimism around changes being made, and around the new possibilities and opportunities this opens up, but changes require effort. There is a lot of compassion and idealism in today’s mathscape, and Mercury, Venus and Mars linking up to Saturn keeps people’s feet on the ground, which is important amidst all of the woo and romantic idealism. There’s a lot of generosity here, and intuition can be high. A lunar trine to Pallas suggests forming a strategy for going forward. The Moon enters dynamic Aries at 8:41 PM PST, seeing a shift from reflecting on what’s possible, to a more action oriented and explorative frame.


FRI DEC 2

The Moon in Aries is conjunct Chiron and trine the Sun in Sagittarius. There can be optimism around efforts surrounding healing and renewal, as well as talks or negotiations opening up. There can be a desire here to explore new avenues and see what’s possible, testing the bounds of certain situations or dynamics. Neptune stations direct tomorrow, while the Mars trine to Saturn is gaining the upper hand in strength over the Mars/Neptune square, suggesting things are getting a bit closer to clarity. The Full Moon in Gemini next Wednesday will represent a sort of climactic point around processes unfolding now, where the beginning stages of a new way forward can begin to be explored. There will be starts and stops, reevaluations, adjustments, renegotiations, and a bit of trial and error, as we kick off 2023 with a Mercury retrograde in the sign of Capricorn, but the fruits of these processes, negotiations, and agreements can begin to show themselves as early as March and certainly by the New Moon in Gemini next June. 


SAT DEC 3

Today see’s a beautiful signature, with the Moon in Aries conjunct Chiron while trine Mercury, Venus  and Hygeia, and sextile Mars and Saturn. A lunar square to Pluto and Pallas is determined to transform things for the better, and this can see some intensity under the surface of things. The Sagittarius stellium see’s a strong desire for growth, healing, expansion, and exploration, and to rise above previous limitations or negative influences. Beneficial partnerships or agreements can be highlighted. The lunar trine to Mercury and Venus can see good news or friendly communications. Neptune stations direct at 4:15 PM PST. The Moon squaring Pluto grows stronger by evening and this can see a lot of passion, intensity, strong feelings and momentum behind things. 


SUN DEC 4

The Moon enters slow and sensual Taurus at 3:38 AM PST, to conjoin Uranus and sesquisquare Venus. With Mars no longer square Neptune, and Neptune resuming forward motion while Mars holds down a stable trine to Saturn, there’s an emphasis here on finding our footing amidst an explorative voyage. Venus conjunct Mercury while squaring Jupiter and Neptune can see a dreaminess and pleasure seeking escapism tinged with magical thinking, while the Moon in Taurus encourages us to keep our feet on tera firma, stop and smell the flowers, in order to get some perspective on progress made thus far, as well as preparing for what lies ahead. Monday kicks off on a practical note that can see new responsibilities taken on or a need to be resilient and stay on top of progress so that it continues. This math encourages staying determined and consistent, while also being flexible and adaptable to changes.

ASTROLOGY FOR THE WEEK OF NOV 21-27 2022




MON NOV 21

The early morning hours see’s the Moon in the critical degree of Libra quincunx Jupiter and square Pluto, suggesting a bit of a cram session. The Moon enters Scorpio at 9:16 AM PST, seeing a major push to clear the decks. The Sun at the anaretic degree of Scorpio trine Jupiter Rx in Pisces indicates a transformation with a target in sight. The area of your chart ruled by Pisces see’s a clearing out, release, and restoration of faith, while the area ruled by Aries prepares for a new, more positive era. Mercury conjunct Venus can see honest conversations, encouraging news, genuine excitement, and enthusiastic plans being put into motion. Mars trine Saturn this week creates stability amidst the dissolution and confusion created by the Mars/ Neptune square. The Moon in Scorpio opposes Uranus this evening, seeing sweeping changes around the corner as certain chapters are dissolved.


TUES NOV 22

The Sun makes it’s annual ingress into adventurous Sagittarius at 12:20 AM PST, shifting the focus on to new horizons. The Moon in Scorpio is trine Neptune and Juno, square Saturn while opposite Uranus. This places a focus on dreams and ideals, and while certain things have been in a process of dissolution, the Moon square Saturn and opposite Uranus exhibits resilience and determination to push through to facilitate certain breakthroughs. There’s an element of experimentation and calculated risk taking here, along with psychic sensitivity, and although there is a pairing back, important dreams and ideals have been preserved and are quietly gestating. There can be support in the background, as well as secret longings. As the day wears on into evening, a lunar quincunx to Mars can see some nervous tension, and possible irritability. There can be a need here to slow down and pace yourself, and try not to overwhelm yourself by taking on too much all at once. 


WED NOV 23

The Moon in Scorpio makes beautiful trines to both Jupiter and Neptune, while building a cooperative sextile to transformative Pluto. This can see a lot of generosity, faith and good will in the air, and it can be easier to feel a sense of gratitude and hopefulness. There can be things going on that can really boost morale and stimulate hopes, dreams and ideals. The Moon enters optimistic Sagittarius at 12:16 PM PST, while the New Moon perfects at 2:57 PM PST at 1 degree Sagittarius, weakly conjunct both Mercury and Venus, (which strengthens as the day progresses) while making an out of sign trine to Jupiter, which stations direct at 3:02 PM PST. This can see faith and optimism renewed, and there can be a subtle feeling of divine providence and even forgiveness, or a sort of "cosmic religious feeling" in the air.  This decan of Sagittarius is one of speed, and is associated with the 8 of wands in the tarot. A card of passionate communications, or "arrows of love", enthusiasm, passion and excitement. A vision emerges here, there is a target identified, and the spirit is compelled to remove all obstacles and align the will with this quest. This can indicate physical movement or travel, but the movement indicated can just as easily be mental or spiritual. This can see tidings of good will, and opportunities to gather or celebrate can present themselves. A meaningful quest is indicated by the New Moon in this face of Sagittarius. There is an infectious enthusiasm here, and as Jupiter stations direct in Pisces, hope and faith can feel restored. Due to the speed at which this decan operates, discernment is also important, as along with ardor and enthusiasm, this decan is also conversely associated with plague and vice, -meaning that if one hasn’t mastered the task of commanding one’s own will, body, mind, and spirit-something or someone else will command it for you. Aside from this one warning, this New Moon is extremely positive. 


THURS NOV 24

The Moon in Sagittarius is conjunct Mercury and Venus, seeing pleasant communications, and good news or opportunities can be presented that can boost morale and widen horizons. There is gratitude, open mindedness, forgiveness and abundance in the atmosphere. Jupiter, ruler of Sagittarius, and the original ruler of Pisces prior to Neptune’s discovery, now being direct at 28 degrees Pisces, can be seen as an auspicious omen. Something has been learned through experience here, but it still remains important to avoid being mislead on the quest for a dream or ideal. Focus and discernment remain important. The Moon goes on to oppose Mars in Gemini, while quincunx Uranus and sextile Saturn, which may see some clashes of will or agendas and a need to find compromise, make adjustments, corrections, apologies, amends, or accommodate last minute changes of plan, (or simply stay focused in spite of spontaneous happenings or perhaps last minute invitations or deviations.) It’s possible to strike a balance where everyone is happy, as Venus conjunct Mercury is very conciliatory and harmonizing. There is a lot of good will and understanding in the atmosphere. The Moon squares Neptune later while sextile Saturn, seeing a need to disperse confusion and create clarity. 


FRI NOV 25

The early morning see’s the Moon in the later degrees of Sagittarius squaring Jupiter and Neptune and then going void of course at 11:22 AM PST. It’s a bit of a lackadaisical, easy going hangover vibe as the excesses of yesterday are still metabolizing, so the day get’s off to a loopy, relaxed, but spiritually buoyant start. The Moon heads into sober Capricorn at 1:18 PM PST, which can see some positive innovation. The goat lunation aims to bring things back down to earth and under command, to sort what dreams are feasible and realizable from what is excessive, delusional or simply unsustainable. For many, people are simply sweeping up after celebrations or holiday gatherings. There is still a feeling of having much to look forward to, but the Capricorn lunation prompts people to put their money where their mouth is, grounding things back to reality, and gearing up for some necessary, but perhaps exciting changes. 


SAT NOV 26

The Moon in Capricorn is trine Uranus and the North Node while squaring Chiron today, which may see some feeling a bit caught off guard by unexpected, but fated opportunities, or simply feeling a bit vulnerable in the face of necessary shifts. It’s nonetheless exciting in many ways, as a new chapter is unfolding that will put certain endeavors or dreams on to a much stronger foundation. The Moon goes on to conjoin Pluto and sextile Neptune, indicating a certain inevitability, and in many ways, certain dreams are on their way to being actualized. Today can see some adjustments being made, and there may be a need for some perseverance, but these maths indicate a push towards some big transformations. There can be some low key intensity and excitement crackling away under the surface, as the changes being made, and that have been made the past few weeks are indicative of significant upgrades and an overall improvement of circumstances.


SUN NOV 27

There can be a grounded optimism in the air this morning as the Moon in late Capricorn is conjunct Pluto and sextile Jupiter in Pisces. There can be a feeling of accomplishment and even achievement, as well as a hopefulness about the future. The Moon goes void of course at 12:11 PM PST, seeing a reflective and thoughtful digestion of the events of the week and even the previous months. It can be nice to take a moment to see how much ground you’ve covered and how far you’ve come. The Moon enters future oriented Aquarius at 2:07 PM PST, sextile the Sun in Sagittarius, seeing an eye on the horizon and the possibilities in the weeks and months ahead. This can see the remainder of Sunday focused on preparation and getting into alignment with our vision. With Mercury and Venus conjunct one another and opposite Mars, this can see certain negotiation processes underway, and figuring out who and what will work with you and how, and assessing what is and what is not possible, and preparing and planning accordingly. The Sun, Mercury, and Venus all trine Chiron accentuates healing discussions and boosts to morale and optimism. It can be easier to look on the bright side of things, count your blessings, and remain solution oriented. Next week begins on a driven, enthusiastic, determined, and forward focused note.

ASTROLOGY FOR THE WEEK OF NOV 14-20 2022




MON NOV 14

In the wee AM hours, the Moon is in the anaretic degree of Cancer conjunct Lilith and opposite Pluto. This highlights a liberation process and a transformation at a structural level that will increase long term security. The Moon enters Leo at 4:48 AM PST. Venus will enter Sagittarius tomorrow evening, followed by Mercury on Thursday. This can see the intensity of certain changes slowly but surely put behind us, and although certain processes are still very much underway, the impact of certain decisions can have a freeing effect and there can be more optimism. Mars at an awkward angle to Neptune all week can see a mire to sort out in order for things to become more consolidated. This can create confusion around options or even interactions, so it’s important to get the facts, and not just operate purely on hearsay, assumption, illusion, or misinformation. The Moon in Leo makes a trine to Chiron, hilighting a restoration of faith and a morale boost, as Venus enters the final degree of Scorpio tomorrow, signifying a final push towards release from intensive circumstances that have required deep transformations and overhauls financially, materially, socially, interpersonally, and at the level of somatic reality. Things can be looking up and there is more possibility. More change is on the way. Tomorrow can be a bit of a crunch point.


TUES NOV 15

The Moon in Leo is square Uranus and opposite Saturn while trine Chiron and Hygeia. This see’s an emphasis on facilitating healing. This morning the Moon makes a sesquisquare to Jupiter, which can see a lot going on all at once and a need to act quickly. There can be a lot overlapping right now and today can be a bit of an obstacle course. The lunar opposition to Saturn highlights responsibilities and duty, while the lunar square to Uranus can feel a bit chaotic but also represents some breakthrough points. The Mars/Neptune angle can see some delays, confusion, or misunderstandings this week, making clarity (and clear communication) imperative. Things can feel a bit pressed today, but it’s ultimately all for a good cause. There may be a need to cut back on certain commitments or reschedule in order to handle certain unavoidable tasks and get them out of the way, or there may be a need to accommodate spontaneous things that come up. These configurations see a need for adaptability, as various clashes of desires or schedules are negotiated. Venus in anaretic degree of Scorpio in trine to Jupiter suggests a positive, regenerative expansion and revision, but today can see a bit of a push over a hill. Venus enters Sagittarius at 10:09 PM PST this evening, and there can be a feeling of optimism around new strategies being set in place. A target has been reached, and now a new one is over the horizon.


WED NOV 16

The Moon in Leo sextile’s Mars this morning, seeing more self assurance as certain things have been successfully checked off a to do list. Eclipse season may have brought with it some reality checks, and although harsh at times, it phased out what wasn't working so that it could be replaced with something much more fruitful and suitable. The day get’s off to a motivated start. The Moon squares the Sun, Mercury and Venus, seeing some indecision, or a sense that we’re still navigating a sort of “in between” stage, with some loose ends dangling. Lunar quincunxes to Jupiter and Pluto can see an excessive preoccupation with something, or a tendency to overdo things. There can be an eagerness to get something over with in order to be free of it, but try not to rush things, as it could increase the potential to make mistakes or overlook important details. The Moon enters Virgo at 5:04 PM PST (speaking of details), where it tightens squares to Mercury and Venus. This can see some beneficial deals or agreements struck. As long as a sense of realism is maintained, certain hopes and goals are realizable. These configurations can also facilitate some frank and open discussions.


THURS NOV 17

Mercury enters Sagittarius at 12:42 AM PST, where it joins Venus. This see’s an expansive cycle focused on exploration, curiosity, and entering new terrain. There can be a feeling of shaking free of things that have been an impediment to growth and expansion. As Saturn has since released it’s awkward angle to Uranus, it strengthens a helpful trine to Mars, suggesting a simplification process that’s been underway is gaining more traction and stability. This can lighten things up considerably. Mars is still squaring Neptune, so there are still certain things dissolving so that new structures can be implemented and set into place. Because of this, things are still a bit loopy, but getting easier as time goes on. The Moon is trine Uranus today, and this influence grows stronger as the day progresses. This can see more room to innovate and generate new ideas. The Moon in Virgo is keen to organize new systems and settle in to a new way of doing things. The Moon goes on to oppose Neptune, emphasizing the Mars/Neptune square. Tomorrow can see a productive push to get certain things sorted, tie up loose ends, and to shake off the last bits of deadweight before a more streamlined approach can be adopted and settled into that also opens up horizons. 


FRI NOV 18

The Moon in Virgo opposes Neptune and squares Mars, emphasizing the Mars/Neptune square. Mars Rx has been in a process of reevaluation and streamlining, and this has seen a phasing out and recalibration process. The Moon is also trine Uranus and Pluto, while opposite Jupiter this morning, seeing a push towards change and regenerative efforts. The Moon sextile the Sun in Scorpio see’s an opportunity to sort things out favorably and eliminate any further impediments to progress. Today would be an excellent day to wrap certain things up that have been dangling, as the Moon square Mars can generate a lot of energy that can easily become irritation if not put to functional use. Ideals can be high, and there can be a feeling of increased possibilities over the horizon, (once certain loose ends are tied up of course). The lunar trine to Pluto is able to rise to challenges and is eager to wrap something up and throw itself more wholeheartedly into new strategies and endeavors. Things can become more balanced and harmonious soon.


SAT NOV 19

The Moon enters cooperative Libra at 2:58 AM PST, making a sextile to Mercury and Venus, which can see opportunities to express thoughts and feelings, and create harmony, balance and cooperation. This can see pleasant opportunities to socialize, and this can be promising interpersonally, financially, or commercially. As the day wears on into evening, there can be psychic sensitivity or vulnerability with the Moon opposite Chiron and quincunx Juno. There’s a need here to strike a balance between looking after our own needs and those of others. Know where your limits are. The Sun in Scorpio trine Jupiter in Pisces can see a lot of good will circulating, but is also activating some deeper needs and feelings, and bringing them to the surface. This also highlights energetic exchanges with others, and something particularly close to the heart. There can be a deep desire to get on the same page with certain others, or to actualize certain dreams, and to overcome blockages or inhibitions around doing so.


SUN NOV 20

The Moon in Libra makes an assertive and motivating trine to Mars Rx in Gemini and Saturn in Aquarius. This can see a desire to stabilize weak foundations and consolidate. This can regard social or interpersonal exchanges, or collaborative efforts and teamwork. It can feel good to stabilize and bring more balance to things. This can see more courage to take initiative socially or interpersonally, and there can also be some excitement around things being more streamlined. Sweeping changes or drastic simplification processes can free up energy, times, and resources for other things. Constructive cooperations can be reached, and the impact of this can all really be felt next week at the New Moon in Sagittarius, where the ruler of Sagittarius, Jupiter, stations direct, signifying a successful recalibration. Communication may still need to be strengthened (Mars Rx in Gemini), but plans for exploration or expansion can begin to feel possible once again. 





Monday, November 7, 2022

ASTROLOGY FOR THE WEEK OF NOV 7-13 2022




MON NOV 7

The energy of the full moon eclipse builds with the Moon in Taurus, (exalted). This eclipse on Tuesday is a particularly climactic and poignant one. Events can feel stacked, one on top of the other. The energy is extremely condensed. There’s a detangling of a mess and a motion towards fruitful stability is signified here. The pressure is on, and this math can feel downright disorienting. All of this coincides with the Saturn/Uranus square, while the Sun, Venus and Mercury conjunction demands nothing short of a deep recalibration and refocusing of energies. Mars Rx in Gemini squaring Neptune is particularly potent this week, and this can diminish energy somewhat and contribute to a feeling of being overwhelmed or at sea amidst a lot of high pressure changes. It’s important to simplify things for yourself as much as you can, and allow what is no longer working to organically dissolve. Try not to push the river or overestimate your forces, but conversely, don’t underestimate your forces, or succumb to states of paralysis or powerlessness. There’s a tendency towards extremes, and the trick is to find the sweet spot. Breaking things down into manageable chunks, streamlining, slowly masticating the changes, and allowing yourself some wiggle room to be adaptable as necessary will go a long way to mitigate these maths. It’s a high pressure landscape, with a focus on reaching an apex point in a fractal series of upgrades. The accent here is on money, ethics, values, material/somatic reality, and energetic exchanges. Try to take it easy when you can. Good luck out there this week to everyone. 


TUES NOV 8

The Moon is exalted in all of Taurus, and is particularly potent in the second face. The Full Moon total eclipse occurs at 16 degrees Taurus at 3:02 AM PST, exactly conjunct Uranus, in close orb to the North Node, and tightly square Saturn. Essentially right on top of the Saturn/Uranus square, symbolizing that a breakthrough is nigh as we can begin to put the tension of this aspect behind us in the weeks ahead. There's an element of liberation signified by these configurations. This decan of Taurus is represented by the 6 of pentacles, a card symbolizing mutually beneficial exchanges and agreements, the ethics of giving and receiving. It’s a karmic decan that also represents balance between various aspects of the somatic realms. Work and play. Action and repose. Alchemy of vitamin, mineral, herb, and amino. The eclipse opposes the Scorpio stellium (Sun, Mercury, Venus). There’s a lot of passion, drive, and desire here, with an element of surprise, and much to integrate. There’s a bit of a swap out happening, as something is being dropped, renegotiated, or transitioned away from to make room for something else that feels more appropriate. It’s important to ensure there’s adequate replacement for anything essential that is being dissolved or phased out, in order to minimize austerity. There’s a refocus and repurposing of energy here, as certain messes are detangled and debacles resolved. Inevitable processes and ineffable truths are faced. Energy exchanges are renegotiated. This eclipse represents an apex point in an ongoing recalibration of somatic, cognitive, relational, social, financial, and energetic systems at all levels. It’s best to avoid delusions of grandeur, or foolish gambles, and focus on simplification via smaller risks with more certain rewards. The Mars Rx cycle is helpful for making tweaks, adjustments and improvements, and sorting out messy situations. While one apex is reached, another peak lies over the horizon, and Mars narrows it’s focus while Jupiter Rx in Pisces widens the lens and deepens pigment and saturation. 


WED NOV 9

The Moon enters inquisitive Gemini at 5:37 AM PST, sextile Jupiter and trine Pluto in the early morning hours, seeing the day begin on a very curious note . The Sun and Mercury in Scorpio opposite Uranus can see conversations or thoughts easily go into controversial, edgy, taboo, heady, or intense territory. Small things can easily get u DER the skin or have an undermining influence. Focus on what's good, what's working for you. Have faith, but don't rely on luck right now. There can be some surprising insights, interactions or "out of character" things revealed over the coming days. A lot of curiosity is aroused, and things can feel almost too stimulating. As the day progresses, try to use any doubts or potential dips in confidence as an impetus towards making adjustments and improvements. Simplification should be the aim. Blockages are temporary. 


THURS NOV 10

The day begins with a solid goal in mind and a desire to streamline and innovate a way forward. The Moon in Gemini is trine Saturn and goes on to conjoin Mars and square Neptune, seeing energy pick up somewhat as the day progresses, although this math favors more indirect or subtle approaches. A beautiful trine between Venus and Neptune perfects this morning at 22 degrees, and this can see heightened intuition, creativity, inspiration and sensitivity to nuance. This configuration highlights a dream, ideal, fantasy, or inner spiritual sanctuary that functions as a sort of lighthouse. Beauty can be found in unusual places. There’s a lot of kindness, love, passion, and beauty in this configuration, just take care that you’re lavishing it on deserving people and not being taken advantage of. A good aspect for privately musing and getting in touch with your true desires and inner promptings. A passionate, curious, if rather bemusing landscape.


FRI NOV 11

The Moon in Gemini conjunct Mars and square Jupiter and Neptune makes an awkward quincunx to Venus. There’s a lot of sensitivity here to what’s said, what’s not said, or what’s merely implied, and perhaps a sensitivity to power dynamics. The lowest octave expression of the lunar quincunx to Venus in Scorpio can tend towards an obsequious sycophancy that barely conceals an agenda, while lower octave expressions of Moon/Mars/Neptune can be a bit passive aggressive. In a more direct expression, these aspects can inspire venting sessions, disclosures, or tea spillages. Choose your confidants wisely. Although Venus trine Neptune has high ideals and intense desires, Venus quincunx Mars can see a difficulty asserting oneself or asking for what you want in relationships and other exchanges and dynamics. There’s a need to find a way to recalibrate certain arrangements which ensures that everything is above board and that boundaries, terms, and expectations (and even your own feelings about things) are clearly understood. There may also simply be a need to let off steam, disclose something, and get some honest feedback.  Just take care to avoid impulsively blurting things out without due introspection. The Moon moves into cozy and clannish Cancer early evening, shifting the focus towards comfort, safety, nurturing, and emotional replenishment. 


SAT NOV 12

The Moon in Cancer squares Chiron, seeing an accent on vulnerabilities, compassion, and protective instincts. Hopefully a vulnerability hangover was averted after yesterday’s configurations. With the Moon trine Juno, there can be quiet support in the background, which is a helpful influence under the sensitive lunation. There’s a desire here to nourish the soul, strengthen foundations, and attend to needs or desires which may have been sidelined or thrown off kilter in recent weeks and months. Later on, the Moon forms a trine to the Sun and Neptune and a sextile to Uranus, seeing some surprising emotional insights, subtle breakthroughs, psychic downloads, or disarming and enlightening experiences. It’s possible there’s something to feel excited about, and there can be something refreshing and deeply nourishing about doing something a little different or out of our norm.


SUN NOV 13

The Moon in Cancer is trine the Sun, Mercury, Venus, Jupiter and Neptune. This is beautiful math. There can be some relief that accompanies these configurations, and a feeling that certain challenges are on their way towards a resolution. There’s a lot of compassion, coziness, beauty and even mysticism in these configurations, and there can be good news circulating that can feel deeply reassuring. A sense of hope can be restored, but there’s also a strong desire to look deeper under the surface of things and to follow a hunch. The Moon opposes Pluto as the day wears on, indicating a desire to unearth something or explore it more deeply. There can be more to something or someone than it seems. There’s a powerful drive to get to the bottom of something, or to understand our own or others true motives, along with a push towards metamorphosis, rebirth, and regeneration here. There can be something that provides an impetus to make some long awaited changes. Follow your instincts.

ASTROLOGY FOR THE WEEK OF OCT 31-NOV 6 2022




MON OCT 31

The Moon leaves earthy Capricorn for futuristic Aquarius at 8:43 AM PDT.  This see’s the Moon square Mercury and eventually Venus in Scorpio, while the Sun is conjunct both Mercury, Venus, and the South Node. This can see a lot going on under the surface, and a lot of controlled intensity. There can be opportunities for good times for those seeking it out. We still have a ways to go to put the Saturn/Uranus square completely behind us, and this configuration can see some tensions around navigating a lot of changes this week. Mars now retrograde in Gemini while square Neptune and quincunx Pluto places importance on managing reactions to potentially confusing, demoralizing, unclear, loaded, or passive aggressive people, situations, or dynamics. This can coincide with a tactical retreat or distancing from certain situations, to gain perspective, adjust to changes, or gather forces. Scorpio season heavily emphasizes the South Node, and the importance of collectively and individually purifying the lower octave expressions of Scorpio/Pluto/8th house energy. Extremism, black and white thinking, power and control trips, jealousy, envy, hatred, compulsion, pathological insecurity, manipulation, abuse, obsession, unhealthy dependencies and enmeshments, addiction to drama, sadism, blind anger, insatiability, reactionary behavior, revenge fantasies, baseless cruelty, etc etc,.. these are all examples of low vibrational Scorpio energy that needs to be collectively distilled, alchemized and transmuted like a kundalini serpent into it’s highest vibrational octave, which is powerfully healing, psychic, cleansing and regenerative.


TUES NOV 1

Todays quarter Moon squares Venus in the early part of the day, along with Uranus, while conjunct Saturn and trine Mars. There’s a raising of the bar here, and this can see an opportunity to renegotiate certain things in your life. There can be some positive, well timed risks taken, and this lunation has a certain “smartness” about it. There may be some curve balls or delays to navigate. Although there is a strong sense of community, these configurations can also see a healthy emotional distancing from messy, volatile, unstable situations, people, or dynamics that have interfered with focus and momentum, and drained energy and morale. There's an opportunity here to rise above petty differences and find common ground. There can be a certain mistrust or shyness here socially, but this emotional inhibition can be advantageous for self awareness, and for deflecting any unnecessary dramatics, or being a target or projection screen for other peoples unresolved issues and insecurities. You’re no fun to bully, criticize, pick apart, undermine or denigrate if you don’t provide the fuel of an emotional reaction, and if the seeds of doubt implanted by hungry ghosts with little else to do never sprout or take root. Conversely, it's also no fun to seek division when the advantages of sharing a common humanity offer clear benefits. Saturn square Uranus is particularly strong this week, and can present opportunities to lead by example by overcoming feelings of inadequacy and showing resilience in the face of challenges, opposition, energetic predation, manipulation, or other undermining factors. Mars Rx square Neptune for the next while indicates a need to stay mentally sharp, and to quickly identify undermining energies, passive aggressive fuckery, head games, gossip, delusions, hysterics, and mental gymnastics for what it is, -and to stay well above it.


WED NOV 2

The Moon is in Aquarius in the early AM, then enters psychic Pisces at 11:46 AM to trine the Sun and Mercury. There may be some opportunities here for some deep talks or revealing insights. This lunation highlights Jupiters recent reentrance into Pisces, where the true meaning and impact of the shift can begin to set in. The Moon is also conjunct Juno, which can see relationships, and particularly, inexplicable spiritual bonds, occupy attention. The remainder of the day is quiet, imaginative, reflective, and downright meditative, emphasizing a rich inner landscape. This lunation can allow people to get in touch with their deeper, perhaps even repressed or denied desires and longings.


THURS NOV 3

The Moon in Pisces forms beautiful trines to Mercury and Venus, while conjunct Neptune and Juno. This is extremely creative and even romantic. In the afternoon, the Moon forms a sextile to Uranus. There’s an almost confessional nature to these configurations. In the very least, there’s an opportunity here to potentially get something off your chest or broach a particular topic that maybe feels taboo, or has just been stuffed down or denied due to more pragmatic concerns. Conversely, there can be a need here for displays of sensitivity and compassion. However, it’s highly likely for a pleasant surprise. This math is a sort of “love letter” configuration, and although most people have lost their proclivity for such things in modern times, this can take other forms that are equally heart melting or gently thoughtful. A lunar trine to Pallas see’s a quiet, reflective, strategic approach to something here, so there is a refined subtlety, nuance, and innuendo that might escape the attention of more straightforward souls. This trine also speaks to the vulnerability behind any particular gestures, hints, desires or expressions. If you’re not crushing on anyone, this math is excellent for creative musings and spiritual pursuits that add more color, beauty and softness to your world, or feeling closer with family members or special friends. For some, this can see some sweet and thoughtful surprises in the works that come straight from the heart. 


FRI NOV 4

Today can see a need for finding a balance, as a lunar square to Mars can feel particularly pressed, perhaps a little stressed out, although well meaning, with a conjunction to Jupiter, there may be a lot to balance and take on. There can be a tendency here to want to be all things to all people, and to give the best of oneself. Ideals are very high, and it can be easy to stretch yourself too thinly here. There can be a push to make something beautiful happen, or to go above and beyond, but energy can be a bit low and flagging. Being understanding of your own and others limitations can go a long way to getting the best out of these configurations. The Moon enters dynamic Aries at 4:07 PM PST, and this can see desire and impetus gain more momentum, even if energy isn’t as high as you wish it could be. 


SAT NOV 5

The Moon in Aries is conjunct Chiron, seeing a lot of empathy and compassion for the weaknesses and vulnerability of others. There’s a courage, bravery, and resilience here, as the Moon goes on to sextile Saturn in the evening hours, indicating that although there may be some delayed gratification, there’s a determination to knuckle down and commit to seeing something through. Tomorrow can see more decisive actions, perhaps even some bold initiatives, or a desire to unearth something that’s been buried or concealed for too long. 


SUN NOV 6

The Moon in Aries forms a trine to Mars Rx in Gemini while squaring Pluto and Pallas. This can see a desire to investigate something, and this math see’s a curious mixture of being direct and subtle at the same time. Venus square Saturn is shy, and afraid of confrontation, even though Venus in Scorpio has a deep need for intimacy, bonding, and closeness. Venus opposite Uranus struggles with the dichotomy of the need for love, sex, intimate relations, and the desire for freedom and independence. Venus trine Neptune emphasizes spirituality, inexplicable bonds that are nothing to trifle with and are actually quite important on a soul level.  These configurations can see unusual and compelling attractions with a peculiar mystique and very special quality about them, but there may be a certain push/pull dynamic accompanying things, so if you feel like you can’t handle such interactions mindfully and with care and sensitivity, it’s best to give the situation some space.

ASTROLOGY FOR THE WEEK OF OCT 24-30 2022





MON OCT 24

 Today shows a strong focus on relationships with others, diplomacy, harmony, communications, tact, and the timing of initiatives with the Moon in Libra trine Mars and Saturn while conjunct Mercury and strengthening conjunctions to the Sun and Venus. The Sun and Venus’ entry into Scorpio is palpable, placing a focus on the deeper and more consequential realities, and the price, benefits and legacy of close bonds and working together with others. ’Tis the season of sex, death, and transformation, where an awareness of life’s inevitabilities comes to the fore. The Moon in late Libra goes on to square Pluto, seeing a build up in intensity that permeate the day, as powerful transformations are pushed through. The Sun, Moon, and Mercury trine to Mars can see initiatives taken, and there can be a subtle “now or never” feeling behind things. Careful, calculated risks are best, but opportunities could present themselves that are time sensitive. The Moon enters Scorpio after midnight PDT, as the New Moon Solar Eclipse builds towards climax and resolution. 


TUES OCT 25

The New Moon Eclipse perfects at 3:49 AM PDT, at 2 degrees Scorpio. This is a character building degree, associated with the 5 of cups in the tarot. While there are losses and disappointments conveyed in the card, there are still 2 cups standing. This decan highlights the cycle of death and rebirth, and the cycle of desire, of hunger and satiation. Even if you manage to be satiated, you will inevitably experience hunger again. Life’s harsher truths may not be able to be completely avoided, but they can be understood, accepted and managed. The New Moon in this degree can see a certain unravelling of bonds, or a lessening of the grip that something or someone has over you. Venus is exactly conjunct this eclipse, bringing to light the deeper implications of relationships, both the price one pays for pleasure, and the fruits reaped from obtaining ones desires.  This eclipse can see powerful experiences and shifts interpersonally, and as regards Venus ruled matters of money, possessions, values, beauty,  love, and pleasure. The Moon at this decan can be particularly insatiable, and in need of support, comfort, and closeness, so this can see people pretty interpersonally preoccupied, or there can be a strong focus on consequential, intense, unavoidable, or heavy topics. Mortality, finances, sex, intimacy, death, merging, even commercial affairs and the pursuit of money, taboo topics, the occult, secrets, power, compulsion, obsession, and life’s mystery and darker underbelly can all be highlighted at this time. Even though this eclipse is considered to be particularly debilitated, there can be some beneficial arrangements, powerful processes, transformations, and agreements underway at this time. The Moon goes on to oppose Uranus, while trine Juno, and quincunx Chiron, indicating surprises and a need to adapt to changes. Emotions can be changeable and the nervous system can feel a bit jangled or highly charged. There’s a sort of relentless quality to the low key intensity that’s both exciting and overwhelming. Try to give yourself and others time to breathe and calibrate.


WED OCT 26

The Moon in Scorpio forms a trine to Jupiter Rx at zenith of Aries, about to back into Pisces tomorrow evening. It also squares Saturn while trine Neptune and Pallas while sextile Pluto. There can be some calculated risks taken that can have deferred results that can be beneficial in the long run. With the Moon square Saturn, there can be a focus on necessity. As the day wears on into evening, there can be more of a focus on the silver linings, and there can be a lot of kindness, sensitivity and compassion in the air. It can be easy to empathize with the struggles of others, or the significance, magnitude, or weight of certain issues, and the lunar trine to Pallas can highlight the benefits of reflection, wisdom, and strategy. The evening can see an opportunity for reflection and repose. The Sun conjunct Mercury and Venus highlights staying in touch with others, staying abreast of news, talking, sharing, emotional disclosures, as well as emotional support. 


THURS OCT 27

The Moon enters Sagittarius at 3:55 AM PDT, to trine Jupiter Rx at 0 degrees Aries. This can see some last minute blessings, or “nick of time” saves or silver linings. News or communications with others can bring hope or boost morale, optimism, and faith levels. The Moon goes on to trine Chiron, which can see emotional support, generosity, or shared vulnerability that help people buoy each other up. The lunar square to Juno can see actions taken on behalf of or because of others, or relationships can function as a positive catalyst. Jupiter backs into sensitive and mystical Pisces at 10:10 PM PDT, to conjoin Neptune. This places a focus on dreams, fantasies, visions, rest, recovery, faith, release, and spiritual and mystical experiences. Jupiter in this decan of Pisces focuses on epic quests, driven by high ideals. Compassion can be bottomless here, and there are elements of martyrdom. This decan is associated with the 10 of Cups. The end all be all. The quintessential dream. The happy ending. Jupiters journey back to Pisces is best used to fortify your game plan to best align with your highest visions of fulfillment, and what constitutes a happy ending for you. Jupiter in this decan of Pisces spares no expense and goes head on for the impossible dream, the attainment of the hearts deepest desires. The 10 of cups represents union and merging with a beloved, but truly it’s a merging with the universe itself. Because this decan speak of a willingness to sacrifice everything for ones ideals, it’s important to discern whether or not the desired end or object is an illusion or not, and to make peace with the nature of desire itself. A healthy dose of realism can go a long way in actualizing heaven on earth-or perhaps more importantly,- being able to see that it’s already here, manifest, before us.


FRI OCT 28

The Moon in Sagittarius trine Chiron and square Neptune, also opposes Mars while sextile Saturn. Ideals can be high, and there can be a strong drive to obtain and uphold them. There can also be some uncertainty, sensitivity, or confusion around the loftiness of certain goals. The Moon sextile Saturn tugs at the sleeve of idyllic outcomes to keep expectations modest and realistic, but there is a largesse of spirit and a resilient hopefulness to these configurations. The Moon goes on to square Jupiter, seeing expansiveness and optimism grow, and indeed it can feel like the strength of the spirit, faith, good will, and divine providence can overcome any hurdle, at least, we’d like to believe so. The lunar opposition to Mars can see a need to be adaptable and integrate a lot of changes. The Moon enters earth Capricorn tomorrow morning, seeing a focus on the work or sacrifices required to ground certain ideals down to reality. Certain changes can be exciting, even if prompted by necessity or inevitability, but they may also take people out of their comfort zones. It can be a time to deal with the nitty gritty of things.


SAT OCT 29

The Moon enters reality check Capricorn at 6:21 AM PDT, and Mercury enters investigative Scorpio at 12:22 PM PDT, seeing a communication cycle that highlights deep talks, disclosures, research, mergers, power dynamics, and consequential negotiations. This lunation makes a sextile to the Sun and Venus, which can see some matter of fact realities being negotiated, some strong desires being revealed, or intense dynamics being navigated. There can be shared vulnerability present, and people can seek a steady rock to lean on. However, even those who have authority or control can feel uncertain. Efforts to ground, center, structure, and even budget things can feel particularly satisfying and helpful. Much may be going on internally, under the surface, or behind the scenes, so focusing on essentials can help fortify foundations to accommodate the reality of incoming changes.


SUN OCT 30

Mars stations retrograde at 25 degrees Gemini this morning at 6:26 AM PDT, until January 12, 2023. This see’s a prolonged cycle that is best used to visualize desired results, and relate accordingly to others. It’s a good time to evaluate options, but this decan of Gemini is ruled by the 10 of swords, a card of definitive, sometimes painful endings. This means that something will have to be sacrificed so that something more appropriate to our actual aims and desires can take it’s place. So in the house that this Mars transit occupies, something needs to be removed and cleared out to make way for something else. This retrograde is about becoming congruent with your own true will, and this will necessitate firm choices. You will have to pick something, and stick with it eventually, if you’re to actually obtain what you truly desire, as opposed to just fantasizing about it and living in limbo. The Moon is conjunct Pluto today while trine Uranus and square Chiron, and the Sun is conjunct Venus and Mercury. This can see some important negotiations or realizations, and there can even be some vulnerable disclosures, powerful mergers, or strategies being formed. There can also be a potential for people to shoot themselves in the foot if they're not careful. Much of what's going on can be very private or behind closed doors for now, but it can be clear that certain decisions or shifts are looming and inevitable. Evening see’s the Moon sextile Neptune while still conjunct Pluto. ESP can be high, hunches can be reliable, and there can be some powerful or compelling experiences and strange things afoot this Halloween.

ASTROLOGY FOR THE WEEK OF OCT 17-23 2022




MON OCT 17

We begin this week with the Moon in cozy and protective Cancer, squaring the Sun and Venus in Libra, Chiron in Aries, sextile Uranus, trine Neptune and opposite Pluto. There’s a coziness here, and a desire to hunker down and form solid networks or a game plan going forward. With Mars squaring Neptune while the Sun and Venus square Pluto, intelligent advocacy stands out as important, as it can be easier for people to fall prey to manipulation, clever marketing, or simply wind up being another statistic or hapless victim of protocol. Knowing what you want, being persistent, having intelligent arguments to back up your claims, and people who support you will make all the difference and increase your advantage under these configurations. Diplomacy and teamwork is important, but so is intelligence, grit, staying power, and fortitude. There may be issues that may have been overlooked that have come to light that need to be dealt with and addressed. There’s an element of vulnerability to these maths, and some people may try to gloss over or whitewash mistakes, out of either embarrassment or an inability to admit they were wrong about something, but it’s important to persist for what is right, logical, fair, true, and just, especially while Mars square Neptune can make it so easy for people to be misled or taken advantage of. The Moon enters Leo at 9:45 PM PST, to trine Jupiter, which can boost courage amidst challenges. Tomorrow can see a need to get on top of things and get a game plan in place.


TUES OCT 18

The Moon is in Leo is trine Jupiter and Chiron, and then goes on to oppose Saturn, while sextile Mercury, and eventually goes on to square Uranus in Taurus. There may be some challenges, delays, or blockages to navigate, but the Sun and Venus trine Mars and Saturn while square Pluto is determined to see something through. With the Moon semisquare Mars and sextile Mercury, take care to communicate thoughtfully and try not to blurt things out out of frustration. Venus and Mars perfect a beautiful and persuasive trine today at 24 degrees, with Venus and the Sun in tight conjunction. This can see great potential for productive negotiations. Teamwork makes the dream work. If there’s something you’re trying to advocate for, be proactive, as todays Mars/Venus trine can see a push towards balance, justice, harmonious cooperation, bridge building, and fostering understanding. With the Sun and Venus in tension to Pluto, don’t be strong armed into anything not in your own best interests. Be diplomatic, but don’t be a pushover. Soft power is the key in any important negotiations. What is just and right requires no coercion, but in the face of any strong arm tactics, power imbalances, intimidation, or Borg mentalities, it may require just a touch of spice and a spine. 


WED OCT 19

The Moon in Leo trine Chiron squares Uranus and opposes Saturn, while making a sesquisquare to Jupiter. The Sun at an exact square to Pluto with Venus just a degree behind them in the first half of the day can see some persuasive forces align to facilitate some breakthroughs. Mercury trine Saturn is concentrated on a goal, or exacting some form of justice or balance. Jupiter is still at it’s zenith degree of Aries, emphasizing honor and self respect. The Moon squaring Uranus can see innovation and a desire to liberate oneself from a restrictive or challenging position, while the Sun and Venus square Pluto creates a particularly pressed feeling, emphasizing the need for a breakthrough. The Moon enters Virgo tomorrow morning, and it can feel like improved conditions are around the corner. In the very least, there’s a strong desire to ensure this is the case. The Sun and Venus are conjunct exactly and square Pluto, all at 26 degrees, seeing some potent, action oriented aspects that can represent a big push for progress and transformation. It's an "under the gun" feeling, prompted internally, externally (or both.) The nitty gritty of all of this is just around the corner as the Sun and Venus enter Scorpio together while Saturn and Juno stations direct, all on Sunday. This can see a major shift, and negotiations, partnerships, and long term goals can reach new, interesting, and compelling terrain. Todays atmosphere is passionate, driven, and motivated, and there may be challenges to overcome, but there is an elegant, even graceful grit to these configurations. With the impending Mars Rx, there will still be much to consolidate.


THURS OCT 20

The Moon enters fastidious Virgo at 9:25 AM PST, with the Sun and Venus exactly conjunct squaring Pluto and trine Mars, there’s a lot of passion and the desire to get to the bottom of certain things.  There can be a good team effort here, and a strong desire to improve things. Lunar aspects to Juno, Hygeia, and Ceres emphasize healing, nurturing, relationships, and the domestic sphere, while the Virgo lunation itself doubles down on this theme. Health, diet, fitness, hygiene, healing, crisis prevention, alchemy and getting organized all come to the fore, and the little things all stand out as important. There can be some changes underway that call for getting everyone on the same page, creating balance and harmonizing. There’s a care for others, particularly the vulnerable or disadvantaged in these maths, and the aspects to Pluto and Neptune going on can create a need for vigilance and insistence that things are gone about properly and that the best interests of all concerned are taken into consideration. Tomorrow see’s some changes and adaptations, and if there’s been any struggles or challenges, there may be some innovative strategies forward. 


FRI OCT 21 

The Moon in Virgo trines Uranus and sextile’s Pallas early today, while going on to square Mars, oppose Neptune and trine Pluto. This can see a push for progress in the face of confusing or demoralizing influences that have undermined faith, confidence, or vitality. There’s a lot of care and compassion here, and a strategic determination to see something through, reach a positive breakthrough or address imbalances or miscalculations. A lunar quincunx to Saturn can see caution around trying new things or taking risks, but a progressive trine to Uranus advocates for unconventional solutions. There can be inspiration but there can also be some uncertainty. Overall, there can be a curiosity and drive to get to the bottom of any mysteries or thoroughly research options. 


SAT OCT 22

The Moon in Virgo squares Mars in Gemini and builds an opposition to Jupiter while trine Pluto, which can see a lot going on all at once, which can overtax the nervous system. There can be various things to handle, and it may feel at times that there’s a need to be in several places at once. Nervous energy can be high. There may be something (or someone) that drives us to distraction. The lunar trine to Pluto is focused, thorough , and ambitious. There can be a focus here on getting on the same page with others, or desiring to.  The Moon enters Libra at 6:24 PM PST, placing the emphasis on partnerships, harmony and cooperation. Saturn stations direct at 9:07 PM, seeing the planet of mastery, patience, discipline, timing, and karma getting back to full functionality. The Sun and Venus reach a 29 degree conjunction, heavily highlighting partnerships and relationships, which may see a shift, point of culmination, or significant turning point, with the Sun, Venus, and Mercury all in trine to Mars, there can be a strong desire to initiate something or explore something more deeply. Today and tomorrow can be a decisive crunch point.


SUN OCT 23

Venus enters Scorpio at 12:52 AM PST, followed by the Sun’s annual ingress into Scorpio at 3:56 AM PST. Happy birthday Scorpio! This ingress can accompany some decisive, make or break moments. Juno also stations direct today in Pisces. All of these motions bring attention to relationships in a big way, and the deeper realities behind them. The Moon in Libra conjoins Mercury and is trine Saturn (now direct), while opposing Chiron. This can highlight communications. There may be a bit of formality or reserve, while behind that is a great deal of mutual vulnerability. There can be an element of seriousness and some reality checks to address. The Sun, Mercury and Venus all still squaring up to Pluto while trine Mars can see some compelling pulls or a desire to clear a path to go down a particular rabbit hole and follow curiosity where it leads, -or to change things completely. The stabilizing lunar trine to Saturn can see agreements reached, or decisions to totally transform something altogether if they can't be. There may be some non negotiables, or a certain heaviness can accompany discussions. It can seem like a new chapter is unfolding with all kinds of unexplored depths and potentials. Next Tuesday see’s a New Moon Solar Eclipse in the sector of your chart ruled by Scorpio. Monday kicks off on a passionate note.
