This New Moon Cycle and This Week in Astrology

“Everything that exists is an expression of relationships, alliances and balances of energies, powers and spirits.” I. David Peat

The New Moon was Monday Nov 16 in the wee hours EST at 23 degrees of Scorpio. At this time the Moon was  making a beneficent alignment with the Jupiter/Saturn/Pluto conjunction. This  ushers in a new cycle which provides excellent timing for starting new projects and setting new goals. It also favors renewed optimism and  opportunities for material and spiritual growth and expansion.

This is another busy week in the starry skies as Venus moves up to engage the Saturn, Pluto and Jupiter conjunction. We are living in times of great change and this aspect provides an opportunity to review relationships in your life,  to catch up on what changes have occurred thus far and what you’d like to see happen in the future.  Pluto /Venus encourages letting go of outworn beliefs, Saturn advises making sober choices and Jupiter brings optimism and a sense of expansion.

Mercury is moving up to an opposition to Uranus in Taurus. There can be significant breakthroughs in understanding with this aspect.  Often under this influence there can also be surprising events and occurrences. It can be hard on the nervous system so it’s wise to provide extra downtime for rest, renewal and the integration of information.

Saturday Venus will enter the sign of Scorpio and the Sun will enter the sign of Sagittarius – moving us one step closer to the return of the Light on the Winter Solstice on December 21.

One of the Sabian symbols for this time is,”A Red Cross nurse with warm sympathy.”
