Those of us who live in the United States have enjoyed our annual Turkey Day aka Thanksgiving and now, judging from the plethora of ads on television, etc., it's time to shop till we drop. Shopping, decorating and enjoying parties with friends and family will keep most of busy till New Years. So let's kick it off with a look at Black Friday's astral weather.
Friday 25 November 2010 is a great day energetically speaking. The Moon in Leo offers up a great trine with the Sun at 5:14 AM for early morning shoppers (Note: all times indicated in this blog are PST). High energy and equally high spirits last till the next aspect, which doesn't happen till 10:35 PM when the Moon forms a sextile to Saturn. This is a great aspect for projects that require discipline/structure. Students and teachers preparing for upcoming finals and projects, take heed, this aspect is for you!
Mercury is working on a sextile with Venus now till 1 December, so if you are working on an artistic communications related project, you'll do so with the wind at your back. Poets, lovers, and those in the business of selling good or services might want to spend a bit more time now polishing up their advertisement campaigns and similar projects.
Though this time of year is usually thought of as a universally happy, the holiday season often brings unique stresses too. Try patchouli essential oil in a diffuser to help combat overwhelm. And don't forget to work on your prosperity meditation with the nine of Pentacles. A little meditation can go a long way toward making the holiday season one of peace, abundance, joy and appreciation.
Till next time...
