November is practically a memory at this point, which means we are seriously holiday bound! The Moon is now transiting service oriented Virgo, so we have an opportunity to clear away clutter now in preparation for the festivities to come. What else does the Celestial weather have in store for us? Let's take a look!
Monday 29 November 2010 starts with a square between the Moon and Jupiter at 6:50 AM (Note: all times indicated in this blog are PST). Don't allow your sentimental feelings for the holidays to cause you to go to excess--not with money, food or anything else. Among other things, Virgo cautions humanity to err on the side of healthy foods and exercise, so take some veggies and fruit for lunch instead of those Thanksgiving cookies (and step away from your credit cards too). Venus returns to Scorpio at 4:31 PM and now might be a good time for you to put some wheels under the plans you made when Venus was retrograde in Scorpio a few weeks back. Do you remember what was challenging you in October and early November? It might have been challenges in a close relationship or it might be problems with your work/business. What ever the challenge was, hopefully you made some notes so that you can begin transforming said challenges. Now would be the time to begin removing people, situations or things that aren't working for you anymore.
Meanwhile the Moon opposes Jupiter at 5:40 PM, another sign that conservative action is best for now. The Moon squares Mars at 6:15 PM and you may find yourself commuting home with some really frustrating people. This is a great time to practice distracting yourself with enjoyable music or some yogic breathing to avoid getting caught up in the tide of anger or frustration this aspect can produce. The Moon in opposition to Uranus at 10:40 PM suggests emotional outbursts are still in season as the day slowly comes to a close. A relaxing bath and some aromatherapy combined with an early bedtime might be the best prescription for the Celestial weather the Universe is dishing up today!
By the way, be on the lookout for opportunities to cash in on a powerful conjunction between Mercury and Pluto between now and 5 December. Your powers of thought and communication will be at an all time high. Writers and students take note, as this is an opportunity that usually comes only once a year. This year will be an exception, since Mercury is about to begin retrograde motion in December.
I have chosen a Medicine Card for us to meditate on for this week--and try not to be put off by it. Skunk medicine might seem rather odd--but it's actually quite positive. This is the medicine of the sexy, confident man or woman whose body language says come hither--without apology or embarrassment--think Angelina Jolie. We're not talking about the standard of beauty defined by Hollywood, we're talking about embracing the the womanly or manly appeal that is yours and yours alone. The idea is that you allow yourself to be yourself and those who don't like it, or you, aren't your concern. Society likes whipping us into shape in an image that may or may not suit us as individuals, so this week, work toward finding--and loving, your authentic self!
