As the editor of the Astrology Arizona newsletter, I compose an overview of each month. Today we take a look at the primary factors for the month.
The Overview for November:
This year the month of November, unlike the past few months, has more planets in direct motion than are retrograde! While the Saturn square Uranus will finally pass out of orb by mid-month, we also have the front end of Mars retrograde which will build in intensity through the Sun opposition Mars in early December.
The month begins with Mars retrograde on its 26 Gemini SRX degree, a degree of “seeing the bare trees” after all the leaves have fallen. This promises somewhat of a stark Autumn, with many things bogging down amidst cross currents and the intractable conflicts indicated in November when the Scorpio transits oppose Uranus and square Saturn, again testing our hearts.
Mars beginning its retrograde period at the beginning of the month indicates it is definitely slowing all of November while squaring Neptune all month. If things are confused and seem to be going nowhere and everywhere but are not really in focus, find the best way to keep the future in view, and if possible, follow the plan despite interruptions and diversions.
This month shows Mercury, Venus, and the Sun all in Scorpio for the first 2+ weeks, with all three in Sagittarius by November 22. While in Scorpio, they form T-squares with Saturn and Uranus, generating an integrative void around 16-20 Leo. Still, if you have a planet in the middle of the Fixed signs, you can bet that part of your life is under pressure to act (or not act) with courage, intention, and as much creativity and play as you can generate!
Just after the Fixed T-squares of November 4-12, the Scorpio planets make trines to Neptune, favoring all planets we have in the last 10 degrees of the Earth and Water signs. Of note is that Venus and then Mercury will quincunx Mars in the second week of November with the Sun making its quincunx at the middle of the month. By then Mercury and Venus are both sextile Pluto, helping us get to the core of any matter.
The month begins under the influence of the late October New Moon Solar Eclipse at 2 Scorpio, ushering in a 4 year period of saying goodbye to the past, giving up some old ideals, and finding a new perspective on how and when to do things. All Eclipses are recyclers, and this one shows the need to let go of strong memories of the past as a new life beckons. There are unique interactive gifts promised by this Eclipse, but as it’s not particularly strong, whatever effects there are will be mainly focused wherever we have 2 Scorpio.
Jupiter continues to retrograde this month, going stationary direct in its home sign of Pisces toward the end of the month. This affects any planets we have in Sagittarius and Pisces, as well as the houses where we have these signs on the cusp. This marks a “sea change” in the vast feelings related to Pisces, so shift the tides, whether going out or coming in, and bless the endings as a prelude to the new beginnings promised when Jupiter returns to Aries at the end of December.
Jupiter finishes its review of events set into motion at the Mars/Jupiter conjunction at 4 Aries in late May, and now we can see how the parts relate to the whole, and how things fall apart at the end of cycles. The first part of November shows Jupiter at 30 Pisces, the visualization degree where we dream the future before it’s formed. This month finishes the disintegration of the old dream with its ghosts, and sets the stage for the final “dream phase” in December which will prepare us to launch into a new vision when Jupiter enters Aries just before the Solstice. We are in a 2 year cycle of learning how to enjoy life more naturally on our own terms. This continues to give us glimpses of the major growth to come early next year when Jupiter re-enters Aries and conjuncts Chiron.
So November brings stability and understanding through the trines made from the inner planets in Scorpio to Neptune, “expansion through sacrifices” and adjustments via the quincunxes to Mars, and productivity through the sextiles to Pluto. Then everything shifts as the inner planets move into the extreme oscillations between Sagittarius and Gemini created by the oppositions of Mercury and Venus to Mars at the end of November. These are prelude to the Sun opposed Mars in December, after which Mars begins to speed up gradually until it goes direct in mid-January.
Saturn is still teaching us how to manage our feelings and our individual spirituality to play our part in the greater Aquarian 20 year era now developing. This month Saturn continues to crystallize what we need to learn about the second half of Aquarius, with the theme of “Management.” Its October station encourages us to rise to some type of urgent need or “emergency” through “an exaggeration of life problems which shows our true stature and expands us.” Be joyous as you help put out a metaphoric “forest fire,” since this is the technique for achieving the skill we need to manage our responses to life’s challenges. After mid-month, be open to “rewards from Spirit” for doing “a job well done.”
Planets Slowing Down, Speeding Up, or Shifting Signs
November is another important month for planets going retrograde and changing signs! This month Jupiter goes direct while Mars continues to slow down. So Mercury’s speeding up, Venus is at maximum cruising speed, Mars is radically slowing down, Jupiter’s just barely picking up speed, Saturn and Pluto are moving forward at an ever-faster pace, Neptune’s about to go direct in early December, and Uranus will be direct in January.
In November we’re back to only the three inner planets changing signs. This month Mercury, ruler of Gemini and Virgo, will give us two sign experiences (Scorpio and Sagittarius), the Sun, ruler of Leo and Cancer, will give us two (Scorpio and Sagittarius), and Venus, ruler of Taurus/Libra, will give us two (Scorpio and Sagittarius). So there’s not a lot of sign shifting this month.
Mars begins the month stationary retrograde, and continues to slow down all month. It’s going to be in Gemini through late March, so adapt! Mars in Gemini is versatile, but can get too spread out in “multi-tasking” mode. Because it is retrograde, please remember that much which is initiated at this time won’t move forward until January. Long term planning will sustain the faithful in the interim.
Mars is activating the house(s) where we have 20 through 26 Gemini. Last month’s favorable trines to Mars get a reprise as Mars trines Saturn all month, helping us understand last month’s trines from a new perspective. This will help us with the numerous small adjustments required this month as a result of the quincunxes of early November and the oppositions in late November. Do things in short bursts with an eye to correcting whatever needs it in the future, and show discipline and patience.
Because of the retrograde, don’t push the river! Adapt to the slowed pace, and work on whatever will help support the Mars expression after it goes direct in January. You’ll find whatever began in late August, September, and October will be “put on hold,” with a need to revisit and/or rework some things before everything begins to speed up in January and moves into the next phase in March.
For the entire month, Mars is in the Aquarius decan of Gemini, ruled by Saturn with an extra dose of the Moon. Because of the favorable trine to Saturn, it promises some relative ease of interaction for planets we may have in Air and Fire signs. Again, with Mars square Neptune all month, show good Virgo and Sagittarius skills. See it as a prelude to “entrance into a new country” and an opportunity to demonstrate how well we’ve tamed and trained our personality.
Between November 1-10, Mars will agitate those with planets between 25-26 degrees of Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, and Pisces, and between November 10-20 it will agitate planets or points we have between 23-25 degrees of those signs. From November 20-30 it will agitate 20-23 of those signs.
Because Mars is in Gemini for many months, the position of Mercury will be important in how Mars expresses its energies. Mercury in Scorpio the first 16 days of the month brings more intensity and a sense of dissatisfaction with things; Mercury in Sagittarius the last half of the month will bring more openness, but also prevarication or the tendency to want to jump on the horse and ride off in 10 directions at the same time! While the opposition at the end of the month will be good for analysis of all kinds of things within a large vision, it can also bring contradictions and multiple choices, none of which are really needed now!
As I’ve offered before, when Mars is within a degree of forming or separating from a hard aspect with a planet, slow down and show deliberation and caution in how you use force. Hard aspects to/from Mars always require that we moderate or antidote impulsiveness and impatience.
This month the sign focus is on signs adjacent to the outer planet occupied zone, expanding it from Scorpio through Taurus. As noted earlier, we have Mercury and Venus in Scorpio making trines, quincunxes, and sextiles to Neptune, Mars, and Pluto in the first half of the month, along with the T-squares. The second half sign focus is very much Sagittarius which creates the oppositions to Mars and sextiles to Saturn. Once the inner planets finish opposing Uranus, we won’t have any more non-Lunar oppositions to outer planets until May when Mars opposes Pluto at 1 Aquarius.
As offered earlier, November isn’t that active when it comes to sign changes. The first half of the month shows no sign changes, and then Mercury and Venus both move into Sagittarius within a few hours of each other in mid-month. The next shift comes when the Sun enters Sagittarius on November 22, with no sign changes after that until December. So this month is relatively uneventful, and puts the focus on Scorpio and Sagittarius, with the rest of the planets spread out in Capricorn, Aquarius, Pisces, Taurus, and Gemini.
The Aquarius-Taurus Tension This Year
We are now almost done with the Saturn square Uranus Storm Zone in play for almost 2 years! Last year we were all put through a lot of pressure wherever we had 11-17 Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, and Aquarius. We now have the square very close during the first half of the month, impacting planets or points we have near 16-20 degrees of those signs. Though now separating, the square will be brought back into focus during the T-squares, again challenging us to see what matters so we can let go of nonessentials.
Last year we had three squares from Saturn to Uranus; one from 8 Aquarius to 8 Taurus, another with Saturn retrograde at 14 Aquarius square Uranus at 14 Taurus, and a third with Saturn direct at 12 Aquarius and Uranus retrograde at 12 Taurus. These waning (upper) squares between Saturn in Aquarius and Uranus in Taurus mark the culmination of the cycle set into motion with Saturn conjunct Uranus in 1988. Interestingly, in 1999-2000 Saturn in Taurus made its waxing (lower) square to Uranus in Aquarius, so last year activated conflicts dating back 20 years.
We’re Actors On A New Stage With A New Set
The Grand Mutation of Jupiter conjunct Saturn at 1 Aquarius began a new 20 year Aquarian Era in December 2020, as well as a new 200 year Era, moving global energies out of Earth and into Air. We’ve begun to grow beyond the materialism of the past 200 years and have entered two centuries of Air emphasis, with its qualities of relatedness, receptivity, versatility, movability, lightness, and cooperative ideas, visions, and ideals.
The 2020 Solar eclipse on the Summer Solstice is still facilitating a grand reorientation in our lives, including an acceptance of new allegiances and life directions, and the December 2020 Solar eclipse at 24 Sagittarius is still helping us remove blocks to our happiness. The June 2021 Solar eclipse at 20 Gemini is already removing irrelevant and extraneous ideas and considerations from our decision making process, and the extremely beneficial Total Solar Eclipse at 13 Sagittarius in early December 2021 gave us a promise of major gifts and unique interactive opportunities which will be perfect for whatever we need. Rewards are coming these next 4 years!
We’re still "under the beams" of the Solar Eclipses we experienced in 2017, 2018, 2019, 2020, 2021, and 2022, and these “cosmic recyclers” continue to remove all that we no longer need in our lives. Take note of where you have 1 Cancer, 24 and 13 Sagittarius, 20 Gemini, 11 Taurus, and 2 Scorpio, since 1 Cancer aligns us with a larger reality, 24 Sagittarius helps us find happiness, 13 Sagittarius gives us a new identity and love, 20 Gemini removes what cannot be assimilated or communicated, 11 Taurus will help us remove “weeds from our garden of Life and Mind,” and the current one at 2 Scorpio helps us release many attachments from the past as we enter a more complex social experience. All in all, these were some very favorable eclipses wherever they impact our lives.
The mid-June 2021 Solar Eclipse at 20 Gemini continues to shut down parts of our lives in that sector for years to come. All the eclipses in Gemini and Sagittarius are removing old ideas, old perspectives, old truths, and old futures. May’s eclipses with Sun in Taurus have begun to shut down old value systems in that sector, as well as the Scorpio sector via the May Full Moon Wesak Festival eclipse. November’s Total Lunar Eclipse Full Moon at 17 Taurus/Scorpio will help us tap our spiritual power and focus it through our “hearing our inner God” and allowing our Higher Self to transform our lower self and worldly expression. I’ll be publishing the details of the Lunar eclipse in just a few days.
As we study how successive Eclipses have affected various areas of our charts and lives, we can get a sense of the utility of these “Cosmic Recyclers” in removing what we no longer needed in those areas, creating a void which attracted new life experiences. They invite us to look back, and then forward, to see the continuity of “letting go, taking in, letting go, taking in” across the years.
The Grand Irrationality
In November, the 7-pointed “Star of Destiny" I’ve termed The Grand Irrationality is in play when Mercury and Venus form triseptiles to Uranus and biseptiles to Neptune during the last 5 days of the month. These will activate all 7 zones, making late November very intense as we move through the interactive choices and changes indicated by these aspects.
All of the septile-series 7th harmonic aspects from the inner planets to the outer spiritual planets represent turning points at the hard edge of revolutionary change we’ve been going through for a while. Obviously, this is activated every time the Moon moves through one of the seven “hot zones” of this evolutionary configuration. All septile-series aspects are irrational points representing “forks in the road of destiny” in any larger cycle. If you have a planet or point near any of the seven zones, your life is sure to be affected. In October these zones are around 1-5 Aquarius, 22-26 Pisces, 14-18 Taurus, 5-9 Cancer, 27 Leo- 1 Virgo, 18-22 Libra, and 9-13 Sagittarius.
During the periods these 7th harmonic aspects are in play, if things get weird or crazy, be clear about the choices you’re making. While a lot won’t “make sense,” it doesn’t have to; just be clear about what you’re doing and why. Even though there may be interactions with unreasonable or irrational people, we still have the power to respond in productive ways.
As with “hard” aspects to and from Mars, if that planet (or really any planet) is involved in any non-rational aspect, whether one to our natal Mars or transiting Mars making a non-rational aspect to one of our natal, progressed, or solar return planets, it’s a time to be cautious during the period when the aspect is within a degree of forming or separating. Things have a way of getting strange during 7th harmonic aspects, so those are times to be especially deliberate and thoughtful in choosing our responses.
Primary Action Beats for the First Half of the Month
November begins under the influence of the late October Partial Solar Eclipse New Moon at 2 Scorpio, putting the spotlight on that house in our charts. As that New Moon is on a degree of “a bottle of perfume lies broken,” it’s a good month to eliminate and release any negative feelings about people or situations in our past while remembering “deeds well done” as we open to more complex social interactions in the future. This isn’t a particularly strong eclipse, but it does promise serendipity if we’ve successfully dealt with something which threatened “to burn out of control” in October.
The first week begins with the Moon in Aquarius triggering signs and symptoms of the T-square in play the second week of November. Mars is crashing into retrograde, so see things as they are rather than as they appear to be, and prune back whatever needs it. The main aspects the first week of November are Venus, then the Sun, and then Mercury all quincunx Chiron from 14 Scorpio to 14 Aries, showing us that the way to healing is through eliminating something. Productive action can be found through “non-local communications” and discerning what fits where and why.
The first week also brings the first T-square of Venus opposed Uranus and square Saturn. This can bring forth a type of heart magic, as well as a freedom from “social rigidity” and a sense of happiness in relationships. If you have to say goodbye, do it with style. If you have to say hello, do it with a positive attitude. This T-square anticipates Mercury and the Sun making their Superior Conjunction on November 8, which is also opposed Uranus and square Saturn, with these powerful configurations part of the energies of the Lunar Eclipse.
The first week has the Moon in Aquarius, Pisces, Aries and Taurus, making conjunctions with Saturn, Neptune, Jupiter and Uranus. The Moon conjuncting and squaring Saturn and Uranus is a dress rehearsal for what we’ll deal with when the inner planets in Scorpio trigger it as well. In Pisces, it’ll be very harmonious with Mercury, Venus, and the Sun before it squares Mars, but because it then conjuncts Jupiter it should be “all’s well that ends well.”
The second week of November begins with the Moon in Taurus which brings the Total Lunar Eclipse Full Moon at 17 Taurus/Scorpio on November 8. This eclipse indicates the Light of “surrendering to the God within” will express through the Spiritual Mobilization shown by the Moon. This is the Light of Magnetism expressed through stable Earth, so whatever has to be embraced or released, whatever is taken away or comes forth, say yes with a detached attitude while enjoying the activation.
As that eclipse features the Moon conjuncts Uranus triggering the Fixed T-square activated by Venus, Mercury, and the Sun, you can bet we’ll see a lot of conflict in the weeks that follow, as well as a time of dynamic action which requires a lot of heart strength! This T-square Lunar eclipse will be extraordinarily powerful, with major conflicted energies pulling in different directions. The Moon in Taurus conjunct Uranus is powerful; the Sun/Mercury Superior Conjunction is extremely powerful; and Saturn in Aquarius is the means to integrate the various forces. What is needed is a freedom from social rigidity and fellowship in an effort to make life happier.
The good thing is that after the Eclipse, the Moon goes on to sextile Neptune and trine Pluto, showing that whatever is taken away by the eclipse in the weeks which follow will lead us to the core of understanding and a knowledge that we are shedding all which would keep us from playing the group role we’re supposed to play.
Because of the “4 note chord of harmonious awareness” generated by planets in late Scorpio, late Capricorn, late Pisces, and late Taurus, it should be excellent for any planets or points we have in the last half of the Earth and Water signs. We will build through the sextiles and trines, find awareness through the opposition, and release or integrate the potential through Saturn.
So the energies of the eclipse, coupled with the power of Mercury and the Sun both opposed Uranus and square Saturn, promise an intense time of upheaval during the second week of the month and beyond. The Moon will be in Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, and Leo during the second week of the month, which should bring some degree of flow and understanding as the inner planets all trine Neptune and sextile Pluto.
While November 8/9 indicates lots of friction, November 10 looks harmonious. Take heart, and use the favorable Venus trine Neptune and sextile Pluto to keep on track despite the sacrifices required by Moon conjunct Mars with both quincunx Venus on November 11 coupled with Sun square Saturn. Mercury trine Neptune on November 12 should give us clear signals about what’s going on so we can navigate the adjustments and sacrifices indicated by Mercury quincunx Mars on November 13.
The quincunxes indicate sacrifice, but with the trines to Neptune giving us a clear feeling-sense of what to do, with Mercury and then the Sun also quincunx Mars, remember that “to defer is not to abandon.” If you have to redirect the energies to something more productive, don’t fall into a negative state and simply move in the new directions. As the 13th features a Grand Water Trine from the Moon in Cancer to the planets in Scorpio and Neptune, that weekend should make things clear. If there’s any doubt, how do you feel? The second week of November ends on a high note, with Mercury sextile Pluto, Sun trine Neptune, and Venus trine Jupiter with one last adjustment shown by the Sun quincunx Mars on November 15.
Primary Action Beats for the Second Half of the Month
The second half of the month has Venus entering Sagittarius on November 15, with Mercury joining on the 16th. We have very friendly trines from Mercury and the Sun to Jupiter and a very productive Sun sextile Pluto, though the entire second half of the month has a constant presence of Mars retrograde square Neptune, giving us a different view of what the first Mars square Neptune brought us between late September and early November.
Because of Mars at 23 Gemini squaring Neptune at 23 Pisces, integrate, integrate, and integrate some more! It’s a time to bust illusions, be aware that many things can and should be seen from different angles, watch out for gaslighting behaviors and speech in others, and don’t give up too easily. This has the potential for high inspiration to be acted on at a future date. See everything as a chance to reference all actions, feelings, and thoughts as seen from the Higher Self. It’s a time of testing, a time of anticipation, a time to adjust our attitude, and a time to show how well we’ve tamed our lower self.
The third week of the month the Moon transits between Leo and Scorpio helping us glimpse solutions to the Fixed T-square issues in Leo. However, on the 16th the Moon creates an interlocking Yod, or “Finger of God,” through multiple quincunxes. We have Moon sextile Mars in Gemini with both double quincunx Pluto, and Moon in Leo quincunx Pluto in Capricorn and Jupiter in Pisces. Still, with Mercury trine Jupiter that day, the signals we get should be as clear as a bell!
The Moon in Virgo on November 17-19 will offer practical solutions as it sounds the Scorpio/Capricorn/Pisces chord, with this awareness coming from the Virgo/Pisces axis rather than the Taurus/Scorpio axis of the eclipse. Because Mars is exactly square Neptune through November 21, the Moon in Virgo creates a Mutable T-square which has a void in Sagittarius, so face the future, see the bigger picture, and the Moon in Libra on November 19/20 will yield productive clarity and a clear vision with its Grand Air Trines coupled with Sun trine Jupiter harmonizing all planets in late Earth and Water signs. So we have positive energies affecting all planets we have in the late degrees of all the signs!
The fourth week of November begins on an old Moon in Scorpio with Mercury exactly conjunct Venus at 8 Sagittarius, a degree of alchemical changes deep within each of us. Wherever we have 8 Sagittarius in our charts, expect deep inner transformational forces to churn beginning November 21. The Sun enters Sagittarius on the 22nd while the Fixed T square is in play, it gives way to very harmonious trines and a sextile on the 23rd which immediately yields to the New Moon at 2 Sagittarius on November 23 just minutes before Jupiter goes stationary direct.
That New Moon begins a month of intensification, and saying goodbye while anticipating the future. As the Lunation is conjunct both Mercury and Venus, there will be a fusion in many different sectors of our chart after that, all concentrated in Sagittarius. Because it is trine Chiron and quintile Saturn, that promises an excellent late November and early December as long as we learn how to mitigate the extreme oppositional energies of that period generated by Mercury, Venus and the Sun all opposing Mars retrograde!
The benefit is that the planets in Sagittarius will be sextile Saturn, while Mars is trine Saturn, generating some very positive power in our Leo sector! It should be a good time to decrease tension, back off from agitation, and get behind whatever it is which is generating the conflict. So we get our “dress rehearsal” for that intense time on November 24, and with both Mercury and Venus trine Chiron, it should be easy to see the Light of our Higher Self. Be a mentor or be mentored, take heart, use humor and optimism to cut through the fog, and retire from dramas you don’t want or need.
November 26/27 brings the Moon in Capricorn and Mercury quincunx Uranus, beginning that run of adjustments and sacrifices. The period from November 7 through 30 is one of understanding that we must use spiritual power in the face of lesser force, and this one “brings the news” of a potential future renewal within a social context, so put on your best face and join the choir!
Remember the entire month has Mars trine Saturn, helping us all be thoughtful and mature in how we engineer things. This can lead us to see we’ve been rewarded from Spirit, with more rewards to come! The 28th brings the second Mars trine Saturn, accompanied by Venus quincunx Uranus. We then have to navigate the extraordinary volatility of Mercury opposed Mars and sextile Saturn on November 29, followed immediately by Venus opposed Mars and sextile Saturn on November 30 and December 1. This is capped off with Mercury square Neptune on December 1 and Venus square Neptune as it goes stationary direct on December 3.
This is the tenth month of the North Node in Taurus era! We’re now in a time of our greatest development coming through the sign of appreciation, value, and enjoying the best life has to offer.
Mars conjunct Jupiter in Aries in late May set the pace for new openings these next 2 years, so embrace the adventure in new actions and new freedom to be as authentic as you need to be. This month our wise friend Saturn continues to help us manage Aquarius energies in our lives, with the early part of the month showing our need to rise to some emergency which will give us a sense of our strength and resilience, and the rest of the month bringing “rewards from Spirit” for our courage and efforts. These will be most evident during the times Saturn is trined, whether from Gemini or Libra, and continues our training in utilizing spiritual power effectively.
We’re now at the end of two years of non-stop friction of Saturn in Aquarius square Uranus in Taurus. The square is active for many weeks to come due to the many T-squares, so keep eliminating all which is of no use in the future, keep building heart and focused spiritual expression, and remember your inner Spiritual Warrior can never be overcome. This will help us understand what matters and what doesn’t, so don’t worry if you have to say no to something or someone.
The tension from the square will be greatly relieved by January 2023. Given the friction between Aquarius and Taurus triggered these next 4 weeks each time the Moon transits the Fixed signs, stay focused on your larger ideals, and keep showing heart, taking heart, trusting the heart, strengthening the heart, and radiating the Love you ARE to your world, expressed through a conscious focus, concentration, and intention.
Our recent Aries initiatives will expand quickly in early 2023, with this month helping us slow some things down, repurpose some of our energies, and perhaps pick up some projects postponed in the past. We’ve almost finished our yearly inner planet oppositions to the outer planets, with this month the final exam in testing our ability to use force constructively during the times of the T-squares. We’re now finishing our 2022 tests in managing past, present, and future “Tensions of Opposites” leading us to a higher integrated view as we resolve the opposition energies into understanding and productivity.
The Sun in Scorpio is a time to see the Light of “focused magnetism/desire” which will lead us to the liberated wider view in Sagittarius. Scorpio is where we learn to “let go, let God” and refuse to take the low road when struggling with something material. Scorpio is where we learn to detach, without an emotional investment, and redirect our focused intensity in ways which let us know we’re using power wisely. Scorpio, as the 10th sign from Aquarius, represent the culmination of Aquarius, where the ideal can be displayed in its integrity, purified of lesser things. We now go beyond the “beautiful forms” of Libra and enter into the intensity of the mystery of “that which is beyond form” so after our time of cocooning in Scorpio, we can fly free in Sagittarius!
This year’s Aquarian energies are now being purified and integrated or re-integrated in our climb to renewing those energies in a few weeks. This fulfills the Aquarian lessons of 2022, with productivity to come in late November and early December as prelude to the rapid developments to come in 2023. Because Jupiter is back in Pisces, practice forgiveness and compassion as you see what’s falling apart and how the Light still holds, waiting for its new expression in 2023. We are unique sparks of Light which are part of the greater infinite Light Field. The vision of 2021 has now manifested in a new iteration, with goodbyes and hellos dominating the next few weeks.
As we’re now at the end of the second year of a new 20 year and 200 year cycle, remember a new era has dawned. Have courage and take the initiative to leave the Earth and fly free into the Air of what’s opening as the Grand Mutation expands its promise into the Divine transfigured ideal of a more just truth and future. This month brings understanding and cohesion to all that has surfaced these past weeks, as well as sacrifices and openings as we begin our trek toward the coming Pluto in Aquarius era.
The 2022 Capricorn and Aquarius transits began a new chapter of utilizing forms of personal power in Capricorn to serve the emerging Aquarian ideal. A huge part of the past died earlier this year and a new expansive inspired energy came in via the Mars conjunction with Jupiter in Aries. This is the time to keep steady on our course, unimpeded by old mindsets and considerations.
Open to new ways of seeing and honoring beauty, and make adjustments in your trajectory at this time of quincunxes so you can stabilize using the trines. Adapt to the new pace over these next two months, find the awareness you need to move forward toward your ideal in balanced ways, and move as your understanding prompts you. This year we’ve gotten a new dose of Wisdom involving the vision of our heart’s desire expressed in our efficient adaptation to events. We’re finishing our purification, making sure of our methods, and adapting to the intensification of the time.
Our wisdom is taking shape through our power to attain freedom of movement despite limiting conditions. We are finding “spiritual linkage through emotional stress” and “the blessings which come after the end of old ways.” Find your heart strength and open to finding new forms of genuine happiness appropriate for who you are now, and who you are becoming relative to just a few months ago.
We’ve ended many things and began a new expression these past four months; the past is over and we all have begun our trek into a new world of new potential, new adventures, and new ways to enjoy being ourselves, doing our work of Destiny. Open to the abundance of the process of growth, since we are all on a rocket ship to the stars!

I also highly recommend joining our group and coming to our zoom presentations, since we have some of the best astrologers anywhere giving talks about all kinds of great astrological topics. We’ve had “Evolutionary Configurations,” “America at the Crossroads,” “Using Planetary Hours in Charts,” “Escaping the Twelfth House,” “Outer Planet Cycles and How The Past Affects the Present,” “The Three Part Self,” “Egotism, Narcissism, Identity and Self,” “How Our Chart Expresses Our Spiritual Potential,” and more.
In our May talk, I spoke about my new book The Magic of Venus: Friendships, Soul Mates, and Twin Flames and how to change our relationships for the better, as well as Soul Mates and why we’ve attracted who we’ve attracted throughout our lives. Our October 22 talk promises to be an extraordinary gathering, as Ray Grasse will be talking about the US Pluto return, his new book, and more. You won’t want to miss this one, so mark your calendar! You can find out more at the FB page, our website, or by writing me.
