November 10th – 16th

As though the starting gun has fired, we can accomplish a great deal this week. We have the energy, the drive and the desire to get things going. Now is a time when we can work smarter rather than harder.

We could take on more projects and get involved in more activities by focusing on the important and not getting distracted by the irrelevant. We want to express ourselves in a creative manner, try something new and embrace our individuality.

The key this week is to streamline our daily lives. By figuring out a best practices approach, we can consolidate our errands, make fewer trips than usual, and prioritize our schedule, concentrating on those items that have the greatest meaning for us.

Feeling at the top of our game, capable, effective and getting things done, we have to watch not to get sidetracked by images and appearances.

This week is a week to lay down the foundation stones of our future plans, broaden our reach and be open to alternatives that allow us to get more done with less expenditure of energy.

With more time available, we can spend quality time with that special someone in our lives. Heart-to-heart talks can give greater depth to our relationships.

We’re feeling good, able to see the light at the end of the tunnel and possibly even appreciate some of the recent volatility in our lives and in the world. Life is good.

Monday, November 10th – Starting Over – Sun, Jupiter, Uranus. Monday has the Sun sextile Jupiter, the Sun trine Uranus and the Aries Moon square Jupiter. Monday starts the week with us like kids in a candy shop. We can see all kinds of possibilities for ourselves. We may want to experiment, investigate and discover new delights today. We are looking to those things that will allow us to expand in an exuberant and uplifting manner. The key to the day is discernment, focusing on those things that are truly alternatives to our lives and not wasting our time on the trivial. Although we have all been conditioned into making things happen and being in control of situations, this Monday is one of those days when we need to get out of our own way and be open and receptive to the synchronicity, or magic, of things happening of their own accord. Today we can witness those mini-miracles where things come out of the blue, possibilities arise that we have not even considered and unexpected surprises could lead us down a different pathway. We may be feeling optimistic, confident today, as though the storm clouds of recent times have passed and we have stepped into a whole new atmosphere — an atmosphere of hope and change, inspiration and wonder. Although the world is our oyster today, we have to be certain not to try and force anything. Instead of mastering our world, today is a day to be co-creator with the opportunities that we could hardly have imagined for ourselves. We can start over, begin anew, all with the recognition that we are testing the waters and do not have to commit to the long-term. Trying things out and seeing if they are right fit allow us to adjust as we go along.

Tuesday, November 11th – Fine Tuning – Sun, Saturn, Neptune, Venus, Pluto. Tuesday continues with the exuberance of yesterday but with the likelihood of being better able to ground it. In the early part of the day, the Aries Moon sextiles Neptune and trines both Venus and Pluto, which are conjunct tomorrow. We may see prospects for our future and might decide to make contacts with those who have a broad perspective in order to test out our vision and see how realistic we are truly being. We do need to be aware that our tendency could be to reach out to ‘feel good’ people, those people that see the half glass of water as being at least half full with the possibility of the glass eventually overflowing. While a positive attitude is a necessary prescription for good tidings and blessings from the universe and from people contagious with our good cheer, this Tuesday allows us to figure out the best practices approach to realize our hoped-for dreams and desires. For this Tuesday also has the Sun sextile Saturn. We can concentrate on being resourceful, squeezing the most out of the least, and tending to the specifics and the details. In numerology, this day, the 11th, is a master number and speaks of the visionary, that individual who can see beyond present conditions to view the potentials of the future. That capability is ours today. Not only can we see beyond our usual circumstances but we can give a solid foundation to the possibilities we wish to pursue.

Wednesday, November 12th – It Doesn’t Get Better Than This – Venus, Pluto, Mercury, Uranus, Lunar Grand Trine, Jupiter, Saturn, Venus Capricorn. Wednesday continues the productive, upbeat energy of the past two days. Venus conjuncts Pluto, both in the last degree of Sagittarius and just before Venus enters Capricorn today. Our relationships can be deep and meaningful. We are interested in those people that are truly doing their journey, not some playbook handed down to them by early conditioning or expectations, but their own journey of imprinting their life experience with their own uniqueness. We can get philosophical about life and living, and discussions of such could be important milestones and essential prods for us not to get caught up in the crazies of the world but rather to take the path less traveled, our own individual journey. The Taurus Moon opposes Mercury, so we do have to be careful not to get stuck in our opinions or a feeling that we have to hoard our resources instead of using them. It would be wise to keep in mind Christianity’s allegory of the men and the talents — use them or lose them. If we get fixated on lack and limitations, then we shall have only created a self-imposed restriction that will keep us from achieving our heart’s desires. Let’s not go there, but rather let’s consider how we can be expeditious both in regard to our time and in regard to our finances. We CAN do more with less. Thinking outside the box, considering alternatives, and keeping in mind our options will assist us to see the big picture, the strategic approach to achieve our purpose, and the details necessary as the steps to get from our initiation to our realization. The Moon sextiles Uranus and also creates a Grand Trine in the Earth Element as the Taurus Moon trines Saturn in Virgo and trines Jupiter in Capricorn. This Wednesday is a highly productive day, a day when we can broaden our activities but do so in a focused and highly effective manner. The first three days of this week can be highly productive and very effective for us. The next three days could prove a little dicey. Venus moving into Capricorn today will have us considering those contacts and interactions that can help us achieve our goals. We may be somewhat calculating in our relationships, looking at spending time with those people that are well-connected.

Thursday, November 13th – What’s it All About – Jupiter, Uranus, Sun, Neptune, Taurus Full Moon, Lunar T-Square, Mars. Wednesday night, early Thursday morning has the Taurus Full Moon with a strong Neptune influence. This day has Jupiter sextile Uranus, the Sun square Neptune and the Taurus Full Moon creating a T-Square with the Moon squaring Neptune and the Moon opposing both the Sun and Mars. We may be champing at the bit to make changes, do something different and create the feeling that we are free to do what we want and how we want to do it. That’s all well and good but our tendency could be to leap before we look. We might be so insistent on making moves in our lives that we seek change for the sake of change without considering the implications or the likely consequences. It would be wise for us to restrain impulsive actions. We might be somewhat confused today, not really knowing where we want to go or what we want to do. Going slowly and making subtle variations to our plans would be the safest approach. Today is a day not to carve changes in stone but rather to use a pencil with a big eraser in case we need to remedy spur-of-the-moment decisions or actions. We also have to be wary of other people’s advice today. Their intentions may be sound, but they may not see the entire picture. We might not either, so let’s be careful not to sally forth on a wing and a prayer. Things may not be the way they appear.

Friday, November 14th – Back At It – Lunar T-Square, Uranus, Saturn. Friday has our nemesis of the Saturn Uranus opposition in play. Let’s keep in mind that this opposition, which was exact last week, is in play through mid-2010. Today the Gemini Moon triggers the opposition by the Moon creating a T-Square, with the Moon square Uranus and the Moon square Saturn. Pulls between old and new, tugs between our responsibilities and new possibilities could prove exhausting if we don’t pick up the pace. This Friday is one when we may have to be juggling both our scheduled plans and unexpected situations. It is essential that we be flexible and adaptable today, for things can shift and change without a moment’s notice. We could go from one thing to another to another, scrambling to keep on top of things. Whatever we do today it would be wise to check and re-check over the next few days to be certain that we haven’t glossed over important details or haven’t considered alternatives that might be more successful. There could be a great deal of talk today but it would be wise not to take anything at face value. What could be true one moment might not be valid shortly thereafter. While there is a great deal of energy today, the main thing is to try and keep up with it. If we are slipshod in our approach, then we may find the truth to the old saying that haste makes waste. Remember that the Saturn Uranus opposition is in play through mid-2010 so let’s note those areas that are highlighted today, for they could be areas of focus over the next two years.

Saturday, November 15th – Hey, You, Get Off of My Cloud – Neptune, Pluto, Venus. Much of the action on this Saturday occurs early in the day. The Gemini Moon initially trines Neptune and we could have great plans for get-togethers with good friends or ideas of getting off the track, out of Dodge and enjoying a road trip. While we start the day in a pleasant, upbeat mood, the Gemini Moon then opposes Pluto and the Moon moves into Cancer where it opposes Venus. From a la-de-da early morning, we may hit the shoals especially in our discussions, our plans, and our interactions with other people. What began with idle conversation could turn into heated arguments as people pontificate about right action and the ways of the world. If we feel put upon by belligerent opinions, we could move into a strong defensive mode to the point of withdrawing into the sanctity of our home and canceling plans with other people. Any emotional upsets might need a breather, a time out when we can regroup, gather our forces and unwind from the volatility of our interactions. Thursday, Friday and Saturday could be dicey. The more diplomatic we can be, the more flexible we can be and the less controversial we can be; the better we can navigate the swirling tides of shifting emotions.

Sunday, November 16th – Clouds Parting, Sun Shining Through – Mercury, Uranus, Jupiter, Saturn, Lunar Grand Trine, Mars Sagittarius. Sunday could prove one of those magical days when everything seems to come together and often in inexplicable ways. Today has Mercury trine Uranus, Mercury sextile Jupiter, and Mercury sextile Saturn. The Cancer Moon opposes Jupiter, sextiles Saturn and creates a Grand Trine in the Water Element, as the Cancer Moon trines Uranus in Pisces and trines Mercury in Scorpio. Mars exits Scorpio and enters Sagittarius. Today is a primo day. This is one of those days when everything seems to be going our way. We can gain some incredible insights and understandings. If we felt tongue-tied or unable to express ourselves over the past few days, this Sunday allows us to be a virtual conduit for inspired thought, persuasive arguments and sound reasoning. We may feel like we have gotten a second wind, feeling far more energetic and expansive. Things can fit neatly together. We can draw upon our experience and utilize streamlined methods to both achieve our goals and investigate new possibilities. Some wonderful surprises could be in store for us today. Even the seemingly impossible could prove possible today. Let’s be open and receptive and allow synchronicity to come forth.
