November 9th – 15th, 2015

Perhaps we are feeling the impending holiday spirit upon us, for this week can be a highly pleasant week.

The week may be slow starting as we enjoy the company of other people with whom we share scintillating conversations and discussions of plans for the forthcoming holidays. Let’s not lose sight of what needs to be done but take into account our resources and how we can best budget our expenditures.

We are likely to be feeling upbeat with a laser-like focus where we are able to get to the heart of any matter. Our confidence may be strengthened as we feel as though our life path is on course and leading us to the best of our times.

The mid-week period could have us feeling as though we have everything manageable with all details taken care of. Our optimism may know no bounds, and we might feel as though everything is on the right track.

The latter part of the week can have us slightly more hesitant, more dependent upon someone else for either advice or their assistance in completing some of our normal responsibilities. Collaborative efforts this week will go far both in achieving results and solidifying our relationship connections.

While we might be looking at expanding our activities and taking on more involvements, we need to keep an eye on what we can do, what we cannot do with the appreciation of life’s cycles.

The wheels may be greased for easy sledding this week, but there can always be hiccups that delay or frustrate us along the way. It would be wise for us to take into account any added time that might be necessary in the days ahead to accomplish what we feel can be so easily achieved this week. Let’s keep in mind that things are far more easily resolved in our mind’s eye than in the practical implementation.

The weekend provides a time for us to structure or restructure our efforts and give thought to our ambitions and our goals for the future.

Monday, November 9th – Neither Manic nor Maudlin – Moon Void-of-Course. Monday continues through most of the day with the Void-of-Course Moon that began last evening with the Libra Moon making no further connections to the planets as the Moon finishes its transit of Libra and before the Moon enters Scorpio late on Monday evening. There is not a great deal of energy on this Monday. We may enjoy the chitchat with other people, shooting the breeze and just taking things slow and easy. We’re not especially interested in revving our engines today. There can be a great deal of talk but it’s likely to be light and airy. Nothing heavy for us today, we want to keep things on an even keel without too much depth or seriousness attached to anything we might discuss. This could be a pleasant day as long as we don’t feel pressured. If we find ourselves being pressured, we might also be nowhere to be found. Where’s that sign ‘gone fishing’?

Tuesday, November 10th – Not Missing a Beat – Neptune, Mercury, Pluto, Sun, Jupiter. Tuesday has the Scorpio Moon with the Moon trine Neptune today. Mercury sextiles Pluto and the Sun sextiles Jupiter. Our mind is sharp, adept at prioritizing our activities and able to dissect whatever matters are before us. Combined with our intense intellect today, our intuitive sense or gut hunches and inner knowing can guide us effectively through our day’s projects. We could feel like we have a sixth sense today. Add to this crisp mental acuity a boost to our confidence and an optimistic nature and we are likely to have it going on today, without missing a beat, everything falling neatly into place with people in awe and wonder over our appearance and presentation. This is a day to go for it, since we are likely to be operating on all cylinders. Everything seems to be working to our advantage today, even if we are on the dark side of the Moon prior to tomorrow’s New Moon. While initiations are often best done under a waxing Moon, from the New Moon to the Full Moon, we can use this Tuesday to prime ourselves and blueprint our intended actions. Like a runner in the starting blocks ready to spring once the gun goes off, we can prepare ourselves to put our spirit into action.

Wednesday, November 11th – Deeper Meanings – Pluto, Mercury, Jupiter, Scorpio New Moon, Sun. Wednesday is the 11th, a Master Number in numerology indicative of the Visionary. This Wednesday can provide us the vision and the foresight along with a spiritual sense of why we are here and where we are going. Mundane matters may seem secondary on this Wednesday. The Scorpio Moon today sextiles Pluto, the Moon conjuncts Mercury, the Moon sextiles Jupiter and the Moon conjuncts the Sun at the time of the Scorpio New Moon, a New Moon in the second decanate of Scorpio, with the Pisces sub-influence. This Wednesday allows us to reflect on our lives and look at the deeper meaning of our being. We can be highly resourceful today, making more with less and feeling good about our choices. Life is all about choices, and this Wednesday could be a highly charged day, an emotional day and a day when we might contemplate how far we have come in stripping away the meaningless and towards focusing on the truly essential. We might decide to clean things up, clear things out, concentrating on simplifying our lives in order to have time and space in which to add more significant activities. Our transformation over these past few years of radical change have allowed us to get more real with our lives and to embrace the deeper meanings of our living. This Wednesday is a good day to reflect on all the growth and development we have gone through from the shifts and changes in our lives.

Thursday, November 12th – Snap Back, Jack – Mars, Venus, Saturn, Neptune, Mars Libra. The Moon in Scorpio sextiles Mars just before the Moon exits Scorpio to enter Sagittarius and before Mars exits Virgo to enter Libra. The Sagittarius Moon sextiles Venus, the Moon conjuncts Saturn and the Moon squares Neptune. We may have a thrust of energy to get this Thursday started. We might want to tie up loose ends in the early morning hours, take care of outstanding details and eliminate some of the items on our ‘to do’ list. The more we can get out of the way in the morning, the more time we might have late in the day to spend with a special someone. We could feel our life brighten by someone’s upbeat attitude, but it would be important for us not to go overboard from a suggestion or encouragement. We often are far better advocates for someone else’s projects than we are for our own. While getting the blessing to forge ahead may give us the confidence to move forward, we also have to be wary of accepting rosy pictures without taking into account through due diligence the specifics and particulars of our engagements. Now is not a time for us to go out on a limb unless we are certain of the strength and sturdiness of our involvements. Mars in Libra is in Detriment, not a comfortable Sign for Mars to transit, and one where we need to maintain a level playing field with our relationships and not accommodate or capitulate to someone’s needs. The loudest voice and insistent demands do not often denote ‘right’ action.

Friday, November 13th – Who’s Afraid of Paraskevidekatriaphobia – Uranus, Jupiter, Moon Void-of-Course, Venus, Saturn, Mercury. Based upon long-held superstitions, many people fear Friday the 13th and consider it a most unlucky day. Generalizations can dog us, but this generalization could be dispelled on this Friday the 13th. Today, the Sagittarius Moon trines Uranus and the Moon squares Jupiter. Late in the day, the Moon goes Void-of-Course for twenty-one hours with the Moon making no further connections to the planets as the Moon finishes its transit of Sagittarius and before the Moon enters Capricorn late on Saturday. Venus sextiles Saturn, and Mercury sextiles Jupiter. If there is anything to fear on this Friday the 13th, it would likely be an overextension, an overreach, assuming that everything is going our way with little discernment as to what is really going on. Our sense of exuberance and awe and wonder can push us in new directions and allow for an element of excess today. We may want to connect with people at a distance, catch up with other people’s plans and sparkle our life and other people’s lives with good cheer. A mutual admiration could be engaged and might lead to taking new directions that seem great from the get-go but might not be wisely considered in detail. This is a day for us to enjoy ourselves but with the one caveat that we could go too far, too fast. Let’s not get caught up in a whirlwind of ‘feel good’ sentiments where we cast our fate to the winds and with charge card in hand go to the outer limits.

Saturday, November 14th – Out of Here – Moon Void-of-Course, Mars. Saturday continues with the Void-of-Course Moon that began late on Friday and continues through much of this Saturday as the Moon transits through Sagittarius without making any further connections to the planets as it finishes its transit of Sagittarius and before the Moon enters Capricorn late in the day where today the Moon squares Mars. If we can get out of Dodge today, spread our wings and lark about that could well be our preference. Perhaps we heard about something last night that encompassed the new and the different, and something we may choose to explore on this Saturday. If we are scheduled for certain commitments today, we might take the long way round to get to them. We don’t want to be fenced in or reined in today. We want to expand our reach and broaden our scope. The evening hours could be a little dicey in regard to our interactions with other people. We might feel obligations towards someone and find that we are engaged in something we have to do rather than what we want to do. Let’s avoid any arm wrestling, since petulance could create issues in our relationships. There may be certain situations where we just have to grin and bear it, and Saturday evening might prove to be one of those times.

Sunday, November 15th – What’s In It For Me – Neptune, Venus, Pluto. Sunday has the Capricorn Moon sextile Neptune, the Moon square Venus and the Moon conjunct Pluto. We may wake up on this Sunday morning feeling inspired by a dream, a hunch or something that propels us towards working on our long-term goals. We might just have a sense as to how to fit all the pieces neatly together and flush out our life’s ambitions. This is a day when we might want to keep our thoughts to ourselves, for we could encounter a naysayer who injects questioning into our well-conceived schema or wants to divert our attention away from our interests in order to focus on their concerns. We may have to go out of our way for someone today, but if we see it as only a brief interlude, such distraction does not have to upset our plans or put the kibosh on our activities. Let’s keep in mind that these times ask us, virtually demand us, to be flexible and adaptable to the shifting sands of changing circumstances. No matter how much we might have to go out of our way for someone today, we can get back on track and focus on the steps we shall take to achieve our ambitions. The evening hours allow us to consider our week ahead and plan our intended course of action.
