In the Stars November 27-November 4, 2022 . . . Shining Light on the Astrology of the Week

The Sun shines in expansive Sagittarius, the exuberant fire sign that symbolizes possibilities. We are ready for the social gaiety and glow of the season.

Pluto, Saturn, and Jupiter are now direct in motion, and Neptune follows in the coming week, turning direct on Saturday, November 3rd. With these four slower moving planets direct, more visionary, expansive, creative energy will be available, and more projects can move forward. Only Mars and and Uranus remain retrograde, and this will be so until Mars turns direct January 12th.

Mars, Mercury, and the Moon are now Out of Bounds (OOB). Mars will be OOB for nearly six months until May 4th. Planets are OOB when their declination is more than 23 degrees, 27 minutes. When planets are out of bounds their energy is wild, unique, and extraordinary. The planet expresses itself unbounded, or without limits. Mars retrograde and OOB in Gemini these next few months will be fascinating to watch. People may be much more courageous and outspoken than usual. Because Mars is explosive and impulsive, volatile energy may be unleashed.

Sunday begins with a determined Moon-Pluto conjunction, making demands on a productive, results-oriented morning. There may be a few unexpected twists and turns in light of Mercury’s aspect to Uranus. The Moon moves into Aquarius at 2:06 p.m. PDT, after which we may be able to imagine innovative solutions to current issues.

The week begins Monday with a Mars-Saturn trine, giving capacity for hard work. The Aquarius Moon makes a benefic sextile to Venus in the afternoon, and then the Moon squares Uranus. These aspects signal a time to pause for social interaction and diversions. We can talk things over in light of a Mercury-Moon sextile. We bring the day to a sound closure when the Moon conjuncts Saturn at bedtime (10:53 p.m. PDT).

Strong disagreements may arise on Tuesday due to a Mercury-Mars opposition. In the late afternoon (4:15 p.m. PDT) the Moon moves into Pisces and softens the tone, giving compassion and forgiveness. A Mercury-Saturn sextile provides balance and level-headedness.

Wednesday is marked by the First Quarter Moon. Venus opposes Mars, bringing forth relationship issues to discuss and resolve. Later in the evening the Pisces Moon forms a T-square with Venus and Mars, magnifying relationship issues. At the same time, this is a highly creative alignment. You can use it to envision a new project or future.

Imagination soars on Thursday when the Moon conjuncts Neptune in Pisces and squares Mercury. This square aspect highlights our ideals. A practical Venus-Saturn sextile is grounding, good for assessing value.. We can make practical plans to manifest our desires.

Friday and Saturday are bold, optimistic, energetic days with the Moon and the Sun in fire signs Aries and Sagittarius respectively, both of which symbolize independence. On Friday the Sun and Moon make a benefic trine later in the day (exact at 4:10 p.m. PDT), giving ease and enthusiasm. A Moon-Chiron conjunction invites us to tend our wounds.

The Aries Moon makes benefic aspects to Mars, Saturn, and Venus on Saturday, energizing the day, and inviting companionship. Neptune stations to move direct, giving a strong spiritual, visionary tone to the day. Sensitivity is strong as Venus squares stationary Neptune which can be difficult for relationships, but the aspect can encourage artistic expression. A Moon-Pluto square later in the day may create turbulence and power struggles, though it encourages determination.

The Moon is in Taurus on Sunday, calling for a lovely day pleasing the senses. Take a walk in nature, cook a delicious dish, or attend a concert—or do all three! It is perfect day for the piano recital at which I am playing. There are few aspects. Make it a delightful, easy day.

Monday gives us a break from routine due to the conjunction of Uranus with the Moon. The Moon is square to Saturn, tethering us to our responsibilities. Mercury and Jupiter are square, energizing our minds with expansive possibilities.

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.
