In the Stars November 14-21...shining light on the astrology of the week: Full Moon Lunar Eclipse
The Sun is in its last few days in Scorpio tropically. Savor solitude as the social season of Sagittarius follows. With growing darkness we draw inward. Get plenty of rest as you adjust to the return to standard time and prepare for the eclipse season ahead the next three weeks.
A partial Lunar Eclipse occurs on November 19, followed by a total Solar Eclipse December 3-4. Eclipses trigger powerful events, positive or difficult. Events evoked by eclipses may occur up to three months before or after the actual eclipse.
In addition to the eclipse, this week holds the turbulent energy of a Mars-Uranus opposition which is magnified by the conjunction of the Moon to Uranus on Wednesday. As the week marches on tensions mount. At the same time, there can be breakthrough discoveries with this powerful energy.
Ongoing the skies hold the tense energy of the Eris-Pluto square, as well as the Saturn-Uranus square which will reach its third exact aspect December 24th. We live in a time of rapid change and amazing possibilities. The movement of the planets invite us into a dynamic engagement with opportunity and change.
We are off up and running on Sunday with the Moon in cardinal fire sign Aries. Feel the fire and make it a warm, enthusiastic day of happenings. A Venus-Chiron square late in the day may dampen the exuberance and make us feel underappreciated. Tend to self-care.
The work week begins energetically. A Sun-Jupiter square may lead to overextension, but the combination of optimism and enthusiasm can result in a lot being accomplished quickly.
Tuesday gets off to a zesty running start. However, the Moon conjuncts fierce Eris and squares Pluto, dragging us into the underworld where we may meet with tests and challenges. However, the light of a benefic Sun-Pluto sextile shows us a pathway out of the darkness. The Moon is void of course all day from 7:51 a.m. to 6:18 p.m. PST, a time best to focus on routine, insignificant tasks rather than meetings or activities calling for decisions. At 6:18 .m. PST the Moon moves into Taurus, inviting us to relax.
Although Wednesday holds the pleasurable, grounded Taurus Moon, this day is explosive. Mars exactly opposes Uranus, and Saturn squares both. The Moon aligns with this T-square. This a thunderous combination of energy. Mars in Scorpio is strong, and prone to confrontation. Uranus is the planet of surprises. This day is emotionally charged. Move carefully and mindfully, and think before you act.
Inspired thoughts and speech from the heart pour forth on Thursday thanks to a Mercury-Neptune trine. The easy-going Taurus Moon makes benefic sextiles to Mercury and Neptune, increasing the good energy. The Moon’s square to Jupiter may whip up some excitement, while the Moon’s trine to Pluto drives us to stay on course. Finally, a Venus-Uranus trine may bring surprises in love, and at least make us more open and tolerant. Thursday is an active, expansive day.
The Taurus Full Moon perfects just after midnight Pacific Time (12:57 a.m. PST), culminating in a partial Lunar Eclipse. This lunation is similar to the New Moon of November 4th as it holds a dynamic T-square with Jupiter at the midpoint. Money matters may be a focus of concern. This pattern invites us to release angst and insecurity. The Moon enters Gemini at 6:33 a.m. PST, giving flexibility and detachment, as well as some good humor, qualities that will help us manage the turbulence. This is another intense day. Go easy and keep things simple.
Saturday is mercurial, mentally and verbally active. The Moon is in Mercury-ruled Gemini, and Mercury makes numerous aspects to other planets. We are prone to too much talking as the Moon squares Jupiter. This is the Sun’s last day in Scorpio. Soak in solitude in preparation for the social month ahead.
Enjoy an easy Sunday with the Moon in Gemini trine to buoyant Jupiter. The Sun ingresses into Sagittarius. The Moon is void of course all day from 7:52 a.m. to 7:33 p.m. PST. Connect with a sibling, take a short trip, or take the day off to read a good book.
Monday may be a gloomy, moody day. The Moon is in sensitive Cancer, and square to Chiron, the planet symbolizing wounding and healing. A benefic Moon-Uranus sextile can help us shake it off and find new solutions.

Sunday: Enthusiastic, energetic day to make things happen.

Moon Void-of-Course: This is the time when the Moon makes its last major angular aspect with a planet before it moves into the next zodiacal sign tropically. This void time, when the Moon is not aspecting a planet, but rather floating on its own, is a time when things don’t come together and it is difficult to make good decisions. Purchases made during void Moons often turn out to be unsatisfactory and not work out. Appointments often don’t come together, and meetings don’t result in progress or sound, lasting decisions. We more easily get lost or meander in trying to get somewhere. The VoC Moon times for the next month are listed below so that you can plan meetings, decisions, and purchases at times when the Moon is not VoC; and use the void times for gardening, reading, and routine task work.
