November Full Moon in Gemini

Difficult November Full Moon square to Saturn

Full Moon squares Saturn

The Sun and Mars have both made this difficult and challenging aspect to Saturn over the last few days. Saturn can lead to lethargy and depression. It rules gravity and the metal lead. The positive is when we use it to propel ourselves into focused work. I recommend ‘The War of Art’ by Steven Pressfield who writes brilliantly on how to overcome procrastination. He reminds me of this quote attributed to Goethe:-

Whatever you can do or dream you can, begin it.
Boldness has genius, magic and power in it. Begin it now.

Mars is still travelling within 2 degrees of the Sun, and stays close until the New Year. Mars has moved -along with the Sun- into Sagittarius a fire sign ruled by Jupiter. This is less intense, but still difficult because of the heavy influence of Saturn.

Mars likes action, so release any issues you may be having around anger or frustration. Jupiter connects us to the big picture. Trumpets are the sound of Jupiter. Fanfare for the Common Man was played by Emerson Lake and Palmer at the Winter Olympics in Montreal in 1977. 

 One beautiful antidote to Saturn are these quotes by Celtic poet John O’ Donahue

“When the ghost of loss stands behind you, as you gaze out the window, then may the ancestors place an invisible cloak upon your shoulders that will mend your life.”

“One of the greatest blessings we can bestow upon a friend in distress is to imagine for them the pastures of peace that will be once the searing pain is past.”

Mercury is completing its transit through Sagittarius

Mercury entered Sagittarius on 10th November. This emphasises the ability to invoke Jupiter’s energy of justice and truth. Sagittarius is a fire sign sign that sees the big picture. Mercury likes detail. Check all communications with a fine tooth comb. This is especially important if signing documents this month. It changes sign into Capricorn on December 1st. This is far better.

 Saturn and Completion

Completion from Osho Zen tarot
‘The World’ card called ‘Completion’ is symbolic of Saturn. From Osho Zen tarot

“Here the last piece of a jigsaw puzzle is being put into its place, the position of the third eye, the place of inner perception. Even in the ever-changing flow of life there are moments in which we come to a point of completion.” Osho Zen Tarot.

Venus is now in Libra-Diplomacy

Venus entered Libra on November 8th where it stays all month. Relationships have been under a great deal of stress can now be healed. Libra is the relationship sign, so communications from the heart can be effective. It joins the South Node so it can bring old lovers back into your life. Or old memories of past loves.

My prayer is to ask for a Miracle. Libra is the sign that symbolises Peace.

Spiritual Coaching

Old wounds and heartbreaks need healing, especially those wounds we encountered in our family of birth. In my coaching I explore these issues with clients as they can often be seen in the birth chart in relationship to the Moon and the karmic axis.

If your answer is yes, then a coaching session- or a series- with me using process cards can help. I work with the Psychology of Vision Triangle model by Chuck and Lency Spezzano.

This is a road map of key issues you’ll be facing at any one time. The coaching is to support you transform soul patterns to embrace your soul level gifts. The unconscious mind is the soul mind, the original mind, the deep mind. This is the mythical mind used in archetypes, symbols and magic. Typically we cover this over age 7 through fear as we have no emotional defense. Astrologically this is the age when have the first Saturn square.

EARTH SIGNS Jupiter moved into Taurus on May 16th for an entire year

Jupiter the greater benefic is now retrograde so look where that is in your birth chart. It stationed at 15 degrees Taurus. It moved into Taurus for an entire year on May 16th until May 26th 2024. This is wonderful news for Taurus and Scorpio.   Jupiter is the planet of faith, faith in life, that life is worth living. It takes 12 years to go around the zodiac, so look back 12 years to understand its influence in your chart. It  is the biggest planet in our solar system and Jupiter is Zeus, King of the Gods. It brings good luck, expansiveness and the feel good factor. It truly is the planet of abundance, especially now its in the earth sign of Taurus.

Taurus is an earth sign ruled by Venus, and it promotes all activities connected to the earth such as gardening, music, farming, art, material wealth and all good things on the physical plane. It promotes cleaning and using Marie Kondo’s methods of letting go of anything that doesn’t bring you joy. Taurus is also compatible with the emotional water signs of Pisces, Cancer and Scorpio. Fellow earth signs Virgo and Capricorn also benefit from Jupiter’s gaze.

EARTH SIGNS Uranus is now retrograde in Taurus activating 23 degrees Taurus to 19 degrees Taurus. Change is what Uranus needs. Work with it. Make some practical changes in your life. Clear those cupboards!

WATER SIGNS Neptune The Dreamer is now retrograde. In Pisces it favours all the water signs. Watch your visions and dreams, get creative and meditate. We now have an opportunity to bring our dreams into manifestation. Trust your intuition.

One key word for Neptune is compassion. However it can also indicate illusion, deceit, scandal, loss, drowning, a feeling of being overwhelmed and lost. If you’ve been feeling exhausted, depressed, over-burdened and with little energy then I recommend taking time out and being kind to yourself. Bach Flower remedies such as Elm, Sweet Chestnut and Oak may be helpful. Also for shock Rock Rose or Rescue Remedy.

EARTH SIGNS Pluto is now direct. Pluto is an outer planet and affects world events.  It is at an angle to the Nodes of the Moon, so past life stories can be activated if you have a planet at 28 degrees of Capricorn.

However Pluto becomes more personal if it connects with one of inner planets in your chart. These are the Sun, Moon, Mercury Venus and Mars. It is activated at mid-life when it makes a square to itself around the age of 38. It will move into Aquarius next year from January 22nd until September when it will retrograde back in Capricorn. However it only transits up to 2 degrees Aquarius so not a major transit.

I have also started my Healing Your Heart blog posts promoting music that I love. This post focuses on the music by Neil Diamond from the movie Jonathan Livingston Seagull. Its a story of never giving up! Be inspired and cheer Jonathan on to fly again!
