In the Stars November 21-28, 2021...shining light on the astrology of the week

The Sun is now in the enthusiastic sign of Sagittarius tropically. We are ready for the sparkling holiday season ahead. Thanksgiving will be a joyful day on Thursday, infused with the playfulness and creativity of the Leo Moon.

A partial Lunar Eclipse occurred on November 19, to be followed by a total Solar Eclipse December 3-4. Eclipses can trigger powerful events, either positive or difficult. These two weeks ahead between the eclipses may be intense. Keep things simple and get plenty of rest. If we were not in the midst of the two eclipses, the energy of the coming week would be lighter and easier than it has been for some time, and than it will be in December. Neptune is slowing down to turn direct on December 1, casting inspiration, imagination, and vision over our lives. Fueled by a Mars trine to Neptune, we feel strength and passion in our ideals.

Ongoing the skies hold the tense energy of the Eris-Pluto square, and 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.

Enjoy an easy Sunday with the Gemini Moon in a benefic 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 in a testy square to Chiron, the planet symbolizing wounding and healing. An opportune Moon-Uranus sextile can help us shake it off and find new solutions.

Tuesday is a day of mixed energies starting with a benefic lunar trine to Mars. We feel energized to work on what we feel passionate about. The Sun conjuncts the South Node, highlighting old patterns, and perhaps connecting us with people in our past. A Moon-Neptune trine is forgiving and allows thing to flow, helpful in the face of the Moon’s confrontation with Eris and Pluto which could be petulant and testy.

We are uplifted on Wednesday as both Mercury and the Moon move out of brooding water signs into uplifting fire signs Sagittarius and Leo respectively, and form a harmonious trine. The Moon trines the Sun as well, making for an upbeat, easy day.

Thanksgiving on Thursday is buoyed by the enthusiastic, playful Leo Moon. The day begins with the Moon highlighting the ongoing Saturn-Uranus
