Forecast for Tuesday, November 17th
Capricorn Crescent Moon
ॐOracular Mantra—celestial protections being freely offered…
This could be a day.
As shamanic astrologer Raven Kaldera shares, this could be a day “we attempt the impossible…”¹
And, by all means, the cosmos is shifting its gears, both literally and metaphorically, as today Mars stations to move directly at 15°21′ Aries after moving retrograde since September 9th… you’ve likely been feeling this gearshift.
We’ve been on pause since September—what have your inner instincts redirected you toward in your reality?—where has your inner warrior emerged to course correct and more appropriately connect your dots to better lead you to your ideals?
The degree through which Mars is ever so slowly stationing associates itself with “projecting into everyday living the realization of wholeness and fulfillment… this fulfillment of desire is a possibility, at whatever level and in however incomplete a manner it may be experienced…”²
From ‘The Astrology of Personality’, Rudhyar says this is a degree which describes the “relationship between conscious and unconscious sides of life,” and “invisible assistance often entailing obligation to outer forces.”
If you’re seeking deeper meaning, and it’s highly likely these days that you are, this degree celebrates your efforts. In fact, Rudhyar assures that “it should be seen as an invitation to open (your mind and heart) to the possibility of approaching life in a holistic and nonrational, intuitive manner… it implies a call to re-potentialization…”² which is a term Rudhyar, I presume, had coined to explain the provided keyword, to suggest that this ‘invigoration’ is “simple good fortune, together with unlimited opportunity as the direct fruitage of effort.”²
❝If you show people the problems and you show people the solutions they will be moved to act.❞
These energies, redirected, through this stationing degree in Aries, will linger and continue to express itself for nearly the next year, though the most potent extremes of these energies will be experienced more powerfully through January 4th, 2021… and will demand something of an openness, as this degree describes an opening, to act, through which major potential is being freely offered—how invigorating, indeed.
Mars’ next conjunction with the sun, which will begin a new cycle of movement and motivation, on October 7/8th, 2021 at 16° Libra, which will offer necessary repairs, as well as the “capacity to gain an objective and calm understanding of [ones] experiences in which one was once deeply involved…”²
And, in fact, from here and beyond, despite these energies providing much focus, some clarity, a willingness to openness and allowance, and any inspiration necessary to capture your motivation, you may “be feeling tired and in need of help to get everything, or even anything, done… you are being guided and protected.”³
This can be frustrating. Try not to allow this to throw you, or defeat your efforts—please keep an open mind and heart, should you begin to feel any frustration. Ultimately, these powerful projections, frustrations, realizations, and fulfillments are all working toward the “attunement to the potency of invisible forces of nature…” and you are protected.
❝Every man I meet wants to protect me. I can’t figure out what from.❞
Some astrologers are explaining current energies by using the phrasing ‘paradigm shift’, and it’s becoming more and more clarified, particularly now, what your next moves will be, and how they should be better navigated.
There’s also a cardinality emphasis being balanced between the elements, suggesting that impulsivity shouldn’t be too much of a trigger, unless your personal nativity otherwise indicates… this said, there may still be natural inclinations between response and reaction. Overall, truly, there is an underlying urgency that is impacting our time tables. It’s important to remember, too, to further the celestial assurance toward protection, that Mars is the planet associated with action, and movement, and always, hopefully—forward motion—when Mars all but stops to station directly out there within its orbit (as above, so below) we are more likely to make a necessary move toward what truly drives is from within.
Whatever has been breaking down is preparing for breakthrough.
A lunarly square to Chiron today, through the fifth degree, suggests a vulnerability, so it would behoove you to be strategic, to have a plan, and “make any preparations and create the necessary safeguards before continuing on your journey into the unknown…” and this may be a crucial component of any attempt toward the impossible.
❝The impossible could not have happened, therefore the impossible must be possible in spite of appearances.❞
Also, Venus in Libra is applying a square to Saturn, exact on Thursday at 27°26′, and this is the same degree through which Mercury squared Saturn on November 6th, and back on October 30th… what was originally initiated as either a difficult conversation—or one which offered a deeper investment of interest—could turn emotional now, or be assigned something of an obligation now.
This heightened and obligated degree associates itself to “letting go [of control] and trusting…”³ especially if you’re experiencing or enduring something of a struggle or trying circumstances… “things are somehow going to improve… there will be a slow, but sure, realization that things are getting better…”³ and “if you continue to see the gloom and wallow, you will put up a subconscious, or conscious, resistance to help and may continue on a downward spiral.”³
And this is the opposite of openness…
In fact, any (further) resistances toward forward motion, toward your potentials, toward your bluer than blue horizons—is futile.
And there’s simply no time for that, either way—you’ve got an impossibility to attempt—you’ve got an ideal to manifest.
❝When you connect to the silence within you, that is when you can make sense of the disturbance going on around you.❞
