11/28 ~ Mars Rx (energy & drive) ~trine~ Saturn (stamina & patience): (2 of 3: 9/28 ~ 11/28 ~ 3/30)
This is a delicious & potent combo! This is like a great Father/Son working on a project energy. The Son has all the muscle, energy & enthusiasm and the Father is the brilliant, steady man who directs that energy and teaches in every moment. Internally, this is your Inner Authority guiding your innate desire nature to the tangible results that it so craves. Saturn brings the long-term goals to the table and Mars’ energy can fuel your efforts creating amazing results. This energy enables you to focus longer, attend to the details, overcome obstacles, and get more tangible results of your actions. Normally, when these two get together, it is more like the ‘tortoise and the hare’ energy, which can be frustrating for some. However, they are in an easy-angle and if there is any major project which needs your attention, now is the time you will likely be in the mood to tackle it and be completely supported.
11/29 ~ Mercury (thoughts, communication & expression) ~oppose~ Mars Rx (desires, action & aggression):
This energy is a mixed blessing. It is a time to consider thoughtful action, not impulsive reaction. Any opposition requires that we find the balance, in this case, between our thoughts and actions. You may swing between extremes of keeping your thoughts or feelings all bottled up inside, until they explode … and spewing every thought that comes into your mind before truly considering why or to whom you are speaking. If you are already imbalanced and experiencing any kind of personal blockage or famine, you may feel a deep need to be heard which (under pressure) makes you want to tell people what you really think, without any filter. The problem is, whether you actually say anything to anyone or not, you still may be giving off angry vibrations which will likely bring more challenges & contrary people into your realm and you could end up in an argument either way. So the only way to really control or avoid this type of combative nature (within or without) is to recognize that only the ego needs to be “heard” in this way, Spirit always only seeks peace, and in this case, balance. How has your ego been leading lately? If you are NOT already imbalanced, but in a strong place, feeling productive and moving forward in your life, then this is a great time to ask those you trust, and who can be objective, to give you some constructive criticism to help you improve your Self or your position at this time. No matter what, it is a good time to pause before speaking or acting and ask your Self what exactly it is that you’d like to express or acquire at this time. Any impulsive, reactive thoughts, words or deeds are likely to bring more problems than solutions and often, some instant karma to deal with too.
11/29 ~ Mercury (communication) ~sextile~ Saturn (responsibility):
This energy is really good for being able to objectively see what needs to be changed, fixed or stabilized in your life or environment. One expression of this energy is a tendency toward depression or apathy, but a better expression would be facing what needs to be done and following through on what you have begun. You may feel the need to organize things at home or work, or perhaps take a class or workshop of some sort that will help you attain your current goals. Either way, be focused but not too serious – balance in all things. It’s when you focus on the lack and limitation that you feel overwhelmed and sometimes helpless. That’s not the point of this energy. It’s just time to take any ‘rose-colored glasses’ off, do some serious thinking, tend to the details, take stock, assess the value of your ideas and make changes accordingly.
11/30 ~ Pallas Retro in CANCER (until Feb 16th):
Pallas represents your unique genius & healing capacity, and in Cancer, that means that the healing, wisdom & evolution will happen through your gut-feelings and your ability to create a safe & secure environment for you and yours. Pallas is our *Prismatic Perspective* and in Cancer, those facets take on different aspects of home, family, safety & kinship. We will have to *FEEL* our way through this energy and allow the deep re-set that comes when Pallas passes through your Cancer House every 4-5 years, deepening your dedication to creating healthy environments, taking in more nourishing food, improving your surroundings to be more comfy & cozy and nurturing our own unique wisdom & genius. Now, Retrograding there is very special. So use this 2.5 months to review how you take care of your Self, your rest, nourishment, joy & pleasure. It’s time to review what you are creating with your own two hands – whatever you are developing and would like to share with others eventually. What are you a natural at cultivating & developing? Systems? Art? Gardens? Skills? Meditate to see what comes to you and use this time to reconnect with your own Soul and personal needs to make sure that they are being met in the most optimal & sustainable ways. Also, listen for Truth & Wisdom coming from the children and the Elders – the young and the old do not have ulterior motives or alternative agendas – they speak Truth naturally and, often, the Wisdom that comes through is timeless & relevant. Finally, look to humor or comedy for some Good Medicine ~ laughter unlocks stuck energies and heals old wounds. In this case, we may be remembering times that we aborted a creative project which had tremendous potential and now is our chance to commit to doing better going forward.
12/1 ~ Venus (values & priorities) ~oppose~ Mars Rx (purpose & desire):
This energy brings a balance & integration of your Inner Sacred Masculine & Feminine energies. Your Inner Sacred Masculine is supposed to negotiate on your behalf, get your ideas in the world & maintain good boundaries, while your Inner Sacred Feminine is a guiding force that creates space to contain & nurture life as well as your creative babies. Because it is an opposition, it’s time to check-in with your SoulSelf to make sure you’re not swinging between extremes, or trying to force issues rather than being open & receptive and going with the flow. Of course, Venus & Mars brings relationships into the light, forcing issues of balance & integration within your relationships as well. Remember, as you change, others must change or go away. As you integrate more balance within you, maintaining balance with others becomes almost effortless. Also, if sexuality is an aspect of your relationship, then that too will undergo a balancing/re-balancing of sorts with this activation. Rather than project onto one another, ask your Self some questions regarding your true desires and your true values. What is closest to your heart and fires you up from within, with no props, people or payments necessary?
12/1 ~ Mercury (communication) ~square~ Neptune (dissolution):
This is a mixed blessing energy. On one hand, it’s good for spiritual study and giving your dreams a little energy (if your schedule permits). On the other hand, it makes for major miscommunications between people. Try to think before speaking, because if it’s possible to misunderstand or not ‘get it’ altogether, it will happen this week. Be careful not to let “longing” for your dreams to come true, to distort your judgment and mislead you into believing the illusion. With this energy, some people will deliberately deceive and others have to be careful not to be misled. Stick to the facts or stay quiet, for now. You may even be inclined to withhold information to avoid a confrontation – don’t do it. Communicate with your Self and God today, otherwise plan to be very clear in explaining yourself to others (humans) so there are no misunderstandings.
12/1 ~ Venus (relationships) ~sextile~ Saturn (responsibility):
This energy has to do with your obligations, within the context of relationships. They are not difficult obligations (in this case) but more emphasis is placed on really loving to serve those you care about. It is also what I would call the “keep it real” energy, regarding relationships or finances. This activation prompts you to clarify what you are building, stabilizing & fortifying, in your relationships & finances especially. I am a total advocate of renegotiating terms as you go along because you evolve, the situation & support around you evolves, and your needs change, so often we have to remind those closest to us. It’s really hard to grow to the next level when each person is not clear on their ever-evolving roles & responsibilities. Of course, this starts with you knowing what you do or don’t want and what you are or are not willing to compromise about and what you want to create and make real.
12/3 ~ Neptune Direct in PISCES:
If the Moon represents the individual womb, then Neptune is the collective womb. When it retrogrades annually, we are given an opportunity to consciously develop something, usually related to healing & wholeness. The retrogrades always encourage us to go within and heal, make-whole or integrate something critical to our well-being. What healing have you been working on personally, since June 2022? Neptune is most commonly known as the planet of dreams and visions. So on a normal day, Neptune creates the desire to daydream, create, visualize the ideal outcome (to life, relationship, project, etc.), it tends to see everything through rose-colored glasses, putting its hopeful spin on it all. Now that it’s going forward, you can improve your boundaries and trust your intuition more often. Hopefully, you’ve also been able to reconnect to your Spirit and improve your daily spiritual practices in a way that helps you navigate the world better going forward, especially now that it is Direct.
