★MONDAY FORECAST


Libra/Scorpio Balsamic Moon—November 21

Early in the morning the reflective moon squares Pluto and this resonates and reverberates throughout the day, particularly after the moon moves into Scorpio…

For the next two days the balsamic moon will be in Scorpio.

This is a moon inspired and invoked by Pluto.

This is a moon shamanic astrologer Raven Kaldera describes as a moon when “our direction will differ depending upon what we’ve experienced in our lives… if we’ve had to live that death-and-rebirth—not just a hard change, but a transformation that forced us to recreate our entire identity—we think about that change and find gratitude for the new direction it took us in…”

Or, you’ll consider what something like that would be like.

Kaldera asks: What would you give up only with a struggle? What would it feel like death to give up? What can you not even imagine giving up without destroying who you are… and who would you be?

What sort of self could you build out of what was left?

The moon will make no aspects once in Scorpio, providing an ultra sensitive and specifically depth-oriented potential through which to navigate… the potential to probe more deeply into yourself, into your depths, into your squish—into your darknesses… and consider the ways you are strengthened by these darknesses, squish, and depths.

If there is a soul, it is a mistake to believe that it is given to us fully created. It is created here, throughout a whole life—and living is nothing else but that long and painful bringing forth.

—Albert Camus

★SUNDAY FORECAST


Libra Balsamic Moon—November 20

Today’s opportunity lies in ‘using your imagination… take a fresh look at situations and people you have been taking for granted; find at least one new and exciting thing to do that you weren’t aware of before… allow yourself to enjoy something.’

These opportunities might feel disguised—as these opportunities may actually be inconvenient in some way, or complicated in a more personal way, or painful, or disappointing, or more challenging than necessary…

Try anyway.

Further, you may have to look to past wisdoms previously earned or ask for guidance from someone who might know better how to navigate whatever it is that has you in obstacle.

Finally, today’s moon connects to a retrograded Mars in Gemini, by trine, through a degree that accentuates ego and self-affirmations… and self-image.

And so these opportunities and obstacles likely mean something to you—perhaps it’s in some way involved with the ‘more’ that you’re now working toward… whatever it is, it means a great deal—and even signify something of ‘a wake-up call or indicate that something needs to be attended to…’ and should this resonate for you, it would be best not tended to with attitude or cockiness—better to be bold and dramatic rather than loud, aggressive, or exaggerated.

In fact, someone may feel ‘that they are the driving force behind what’s happening—there may be a strong need, or desire, to draw attention… rightly or wrongly, there’s often a claiming of responsibility—and there is always a need to learn to listen, rather than just crowing about oneself, one’s ideas or life…’

Furthermore, these energies are inspiring one to ‘throw oneself wholeheartedly into life… holding one’s own in the struggles of everyday life; letting other people know where one stands; clearing the air by exposing hidden motives; and throwing one’s right behind a cause…’

Things are changing… can you feel it?!

Less than is no longer acceptable.

Halfway is no longer conceivable.

That and those without actual substance or depth will no longer be tolerated.

It takes a person who is wide awake to make his dream come true…

—Roger Babson

★SATURDAY FORECAST


Libra Balsamic Moon—November 19

As the moon moves its balsamic phase into Libra, and connects to north Venus and Mercury—which have recently moved into Sagittarius from Scorpio—the mood sets its focus and tone upon self-worth and upgrading personal values.

Read more on Venus and Mercury in Sagittarius here…

These matters are as large as they are both deep and wide…

Depending upon your own personality preferences, and how you prefer to use your time while the moon is balsamic—this could be a really sensual sort of energy to tap into alone… however, should you prefer to share your space with an/Other, the lunarly connections to both Venus and Mars suggest a most auspicious timing to collaborate and console, to communicate and coexist.

Ultimately, you’re likely navigating something of a mighty rewrite or rewiring… regardless of what you’ve been allowing presently, or in the past—you’re now, for whatever reason whatsoever, beginning to prepare for more in some way.

‘Take some more tea,’ the March Hare said to Alice, very earnestly…
‘I’ve had nothing yet,’ Alice replied in an offended tone, ’so I can’t very well take more.’
‘You mean you can’t take less,’ said the Hatter: ‘it’s very easy to take more than nothing.’

★FRIDAY FORECAST


Virgo Balsamic Moon—November 18

I do hope you allowed yourself some much-needed time yesterday.

Continued necessary recharging and mind/body/soul reconnecting today, preferably in a most seriously quieting and soul-managing manner…

Except that—today—the moon does make connections…

Several.

Which suggests that we are much more emotionally… distracted.

Where the moon goes—our mood most surely follows.

And it’s likely that you want exactly this—pause, calm, restful mindful revival…

Still… you might need to willfully, voluntarily break through some of your previous conditioning and/or patterned simply behaviors… this energy is about conditioning—it’s innate—and it’s a signaling to get something within this conditioning under control. Something within you might be refusing to allow you a sense of peace, or balance…

And this… irritation?—it might actually be the solution to an insight.

Deeper meaning into something you’ve already been probing might appear to you… and it might be something really relative—and maybe even worth the definition of ‘breakthrough’ …

So if you’re working with these energies, as you’re trying to simply recharge—allow these vibrations into your recharging… see what’s it takes you. You might be on to something…

You might be on to something really incredible.

If you can’t show it, you don’t know it.

★THURSDAY FORECAST


Virgo Balsamic Moon—November 17

The moon moves without aspect all day…

And it’s beginning its monthly two-day lunarly balsamic sojourn through Virgo, which would suggest to both you and me that today and tomorrow would be very good days to do as little as utterly possible, unless it’s gesturing necessary recharging and mind/body/soul reconnecting, in a most quieting and soul-managing manner, with only the mindful breathing in and out in tandem with the beating of our present hearts to guide us…

So we booked a couples spa retreat… I suggest you do the same—or something as heavenly and relaxing, replenishing, reviving, and recovery-inspiring.

In order to understand the world, one has to turn away from it on occasion…

★WEDNESDAY FORECAST


Leo LQ Moon at 24°10’—November 16

Today is a day “we look at our failures…”

Continued, shamanic astrologer Raven Kaldera writes of this moon, that in our everyday-nesses we “risk too much, overreach ourselves, perhaps trampling on the hearts of others in our enthusiasm and arrogance… giving in instead of fighting, letting fear and sadness drive us away—[it is in this moon when] we forgive ourselves for these failures and resolve to face the day differently.”

Amen.

Whatever it is you’re working on, or toward—there is still probably much further you’re still needing to go… and whatever sustenance you’re requiring—you’ll need to acquire this within yourself, and sustain it within yourself as well… perhaps you’ve previously felt as though, in the past, toward either the same goal or project, or something else entirely, that you’ve struggled with this, or ‘failed’ yourself, or others. Perhaps, too, you’ve ‘failed’ to understand or realize that—realistically, you’ve never actually failed yourself…

Not really.

Sometimes we’re meant to move along in our plans within the larger-picture, larger-horizon parameters of what the universe has in store, one slow step at a time… and other times, we’re meant to navigate ourselves and our ideals in ways that serve us, ultimately… and all too often, we don’t always realize or understand what it is that serves our higher authority.

This is absolutely something that comes with surrendering the ego impulses for the higher mind/heart-center perspective, and overall higher consciousness mentality… as well as being a part of ‘walking that red carpet…’

This degree, today, upon a moon inherently flawed, inspires ‘self-sufficiency and self-reliance; resolved but flexible pursuit of long-range goals; having a game plan; coming to grips with immediate problems; trimming one’s baggage to necessities; getting a handle on vital energies; thinking things through carefully; and shaking people out of stupid mental constructs…’

Today’s essence, then, may not be so much on failures as it is personal endurance… are you willing to endure your failures?—as there will always be more, always another one—in fact, any billionaire or millionaire will tell you to lean in to your failures, to fail again, and again, and again…

Because in failing is when you learn most.

Always, always—keep going.

Today’s last quarter moon falls in the third decan of Leo, which is a decan that requires a bit more than what the moon inspires… as astrologer Austin Coppock explains it, this decan represents a ‘spirited struggle…’ Coppock writes that “it is not enough to have gained one’s rightful place, it must be defended against both within and without…” as this is a time when “illness attacks the body, fear afflicts the heart, and enemies close in…”

Further, “the power granted here is the tenacity to fight for the place one has gained, to struggle and be victorious over contrary forces both within and without… one might call this quality courage, but it is not merely a quick surge of bravery, but instead the power of the utterly steadfast heart, which never fails to rise to the challenges present.”

Coppock advises a principle be raised, “for it is only to such… that the heart truly salutes.”

The 7 of wands of the tarot is associated with the third decan of Leo—a card that represents defense and/or struggle.

Perhaps there’s something to really defend… and maybe it’s yourself. With the words defense and struggle put together—this would suggest something of a dispute… fueled by anger.

Specifically, above all else—today may focus heavily upon anger… and anger, socially, has been considered a lesser emotion—an emotion not worthy of expressing, in fact, it’s enormously dangerous to express… an emotion that is unequivocally misunderstood and misrepresented in society.

It’s all too easy for a billionaire, or millionaire, or me, to assure anyone to lean in to their failures… and I know firsthand how I, personally, respond to my own. We are all a work in progress, always—we are forever in transition.

And this is the point.

Nevertheless… anger is all too common a reaction. And Mars governs this decan, after all.

Tarot writer TS Chang writes of the 7 of wands, that “we can think of Strength as a negotiation with the passions: to control, to surrender, to embrace, or to merge with them…” as the 7 of wands is associated in between The Tower card and the Strength card… further, Chang writes, “courage, we should remember, is not the absence of fear—in fact, courage only arises in the presence of fear… and that—the irrational conquest of a rational fear brought on by great adversity—and this is what we see in the 7 of wands.”

Chang writes that all 7’s require effort…

And with the 7 of wands, effort is sought after “in the realm of ambitions and drives…”

Regardless of your circumstances currently—be they challenging, courageous, angering, failing or defensive—you are likely navigating something requiring your effort.

The word daunting comes to mind. Whatever it is.

Chang reminds us that “one of the hardest things to know, when facing diversity, is whether persevering through the difficulty will be the making of us, the building of our character—or whether it is simply ‘not meant to be…’”

Great and courageous personal assessment might need to occur now—and through this process, there will be inevitable ups and downs to contend with, and this could very well be angering… but you will also gain a very brave and realistic clarity with which to glance upon yourself, and your personal strengths and weaknesses—and this advantage will further support your efforts, and your goals… inevitably.

Only you know what you’re made of, what you’re capable of—and this absolutely becomes more and more natural with time. And with anything involving time—try to be patient with yourself… and if you’re up against something you’ve never experienced before—ask yourself how badly you want whatever it is… and what you’re willing to lose, potentially, should you continue on your current trajectory—whether you fail, or succeed.

To give up pretensions is as blessed a relief as to get them ratified.

—William James

★TUESDAY FORECAST


Leo Disseminating Moon—November 15

Still percolating within your power, still resonating within your alignment… still acknowledging and owning your light.

Still establishing your red carpet…

Today’s lunarly intentions are reflecting something of an opportunity for you to need, or actively want, to cooperate…

Within this cooperation, however, in whatever way it may look for you—the point is to maintain who you are, throughly, throughout… without any temptation or condescension to blend into something that isn’t you, despite its ability to offer more pleasing or cooperative alternatives.

The essence of today, then, which is to say—the entire point—is to be who you are, despite it all… it is an exercise in self-discipline.

We all have various idiosyncrasies… and annoying fuckeries… er, details—through finding a way to use these in new ways so that they may even be considered charming… this is adaptation, at its finest.

Today, the emphasis—and, perhaps challenge—is upon the differences within and in between… despite the irritating qualities we all possess in one way or another—we also, all, each possess vast greatnesses within ourselves… and these are designed to be shared and connected with others.

It’s all designed to be shared.

Remember, too, that today’s lunarly agenda is a square with Uranus, and then an opposition to Saturn… and so, in other words—a challenge, and an honor—something you’ll always have to remember… or outwit.

Beyond, and perhaps, more honestly—deep within—today’s energies are also, simultaneously, about strength and preservation, confidence, and loyalty… and the frequencies you have personally set for yourself upon these needs.

Which, would be to imply—through ritual.

What rituals are you honoring in your everyday?—from the very small and seemingly meaningless to the more extravagant and ceremonial… particularly as the moon will move into Virgo by Thursday, after tomorrow’s last quarter moon, and whatever is born of Leo requires ritual, care, and devotion through Virgo…

Whatever you do or are doing—as you’re still percolating within your power, still resonating within your alignment… and still acknowledging and owning your light—cooperating and collaborating, connecting, and challenging…

We do things for a reason, and sometimes those reasons need to be remembered… and today may offer you a reason.

Let’s hope.

Let’s restore spirit. Let’s return to Nature. Let’s breathe deeply. Let’s visualize and intend.

Let’s shine through. Let’s embrace oneness. Let’s be courageous.

Let’s restore sacredness. Let’s conquer habits.

Let’s implore our entire selves.

Be glad of life because it gives you a chance to love and to work and to play and to look up at stars….

—Henry VanDyke

★MONDAY FORECAST


Cancer/Leo Disseminating Moon—November 14

Today’s moon moves into Leo quite early, offering something of a lunarly emboldening from what the weekend’s energies had in mind, necessarily—depending, of course, upon how you chose to navigate them…

These bi-monthly lunarly squares to Chiron—from Cancer and Capricorn—are working you in an effort to motivate you beyond your vulnerabilities and weaknesses, to empower you to edit any conditioning that you continue to honor which is no longer honoring you. And this is why it feels so harsh… because we tend to prefer that which we are familiar with, even if it’s harmful or painful.

And, then again, there are those who seem to need something to be ‘wrong’ at all times… which has always mystified me.

Today’s moon, when still in Cancer overnight, separates from yesterday’s aspecting and once in Leo—moves without connection, providing something of a symbolic platform for you to experiment with…

Today’s moon is a moon shamanic astrologer Raven Kaldera suggests is “concerned with power, authority, and nobility…”

Kaldera has titled this moon the King’s Moon, as “the king’s job is to provide honest, capable, responsive leadership… but in addition to valuing the opinions of his subjects—the King also seeks the opinions of the rest of the world…” or should… and so this moon, in our more personal reality, would represent our own ability to lead, our own authority, our own relationship to power.

Or, today could offer some personal challenges to your ego.

These challenges could resemble matters of authenticity, honesty, confidence, reputation, and/or integrity.

Kaldera suggests that it is on this moon when “we continue our exploration of leadership, but now we work with other groups from within our own group—it’s a time for leaders to make alliances and network with other organizations, and to articulate to outsiders the nature and mission of their own organization… the King exemplifies his group’s highest values and ideals, for outsiders to admire and insiders to emulate—he models the proper actions, rather than ordering others to behave nobly… if they choose to ignore his example, they wouldn’t have followed his orders anyway.”

And so, again, in a more personal perspective—this could look like your more constructive sense of personal authority, or your more self-oriented ego, having cause or need or curiosity to reach outward to others to reconcile, collaborate, or simply cooperate strengths… and if you’re living in alignment—others will likely be attracted to you for this, and want to resemble this in their own lives. Though, if you’re operating through egoic drives, you may actually be pushing others away from even the most incredible ideas or motivations.

When you are in your power, which is what I refer to as ‘walking your red carpet’, you will notice that you needn’t have reason to sway others, or try to force anything…

When you are in your power, things open to you.

If you are struggling with yourself in any way, with others, or with anything—quite simply—you are not in your power.

Allow today to be a day you simply sit with yourself… either within your own power—or to begin releasing your egoic impulses in an effort to, in time, empower your inner authority, which is to refer to your inner Light, and begin working with your power, in an alignment that is in connection to All That Is.

A strong man cannot help a weaker unless the weaker is willing to be helped, and even then the weak man must become strong of himself; he must, by his own efforts, develop the strength which he admires in another. None but himself can alter his condition.

★SUNDAY FORECAST


Cancer Disseminating Moon—November 13

Today’s moon, separating from yesterday’s Chironic circumstances, moves onward and forward, toward a triangular triad between Neptune and Jupiter, and the ever-trailing Scorpio stellium consisting of the sun, Mercury, and Venus, while simultaneously opposing Pluto within it all.

Keep in mind, however, that the moon remains in Cancer, resonating disseminating efforts, and so through today’s lunarly movements the emphasis will continue to illuminate that which is needed to feel secure, and how you might either seek or share these securities.

These enemies ‘speak to directness, aims and goals, and to a mission or strong sense of purpose…’

It is time to ‘accomplish your objectives… you may be unusually determined to reach some goal today or put an end to something…’

All of which inherently describes and involve sensations of personal security.

As Cancer energies focus on securities—both instinctive and more conditioned, which is to imply socialized—and these securities can become quite aggressively congested, which is to presume aggressively inward.

Also essential today, which will likely be illuminated—these securities, or need thereof, are likely changing, evolving, morphing into something entirely new—something which did not exist otherwise—and, furthermore, this transubstatiation, then, might even elude to a security now rendered insecure, or contrarily, an insecurity now secured.

Transformations and changes are all around you these days… try considering only the constructive and inspiring potentials rather than dwelling within the scary unknowns.

What has this process of transition been for you?

What are you learning through this process of transitioning, transformational, transubstantiation?

Further, ‘the need to incorporate inspiring experiences and teachings into everyday living…’ is what astrologer Dane Rudhyar transcribed for one of today’s pivotal degrees… as these are what has been historically and psychologically referred to as a ‘peak experience’…

These peak experiences occur much more thoroughly fewer and further between—these are not your everyday experiences. And with this, most essentially, is the come-down—should you understand, personally, what a peak experience is. And with this, understanding how to navigate the come-down of the everyday—finding the beauty and awe, instruction, and meaning within the average, quotidian everyday-ness of existing.

Please tell me you’ve been asking countless questions…

Please tell me you’re not believing what you’re told, just because…

Please tell me you’re thoroughly fact-checking everything…

Please tell me you’re learning how to see through things…

Please tell me you’re considering the true foundations, structures, and health of all things you’re navigating…

Please tell me you’re curiously pondering all sources of informations—all sides, all layers, all matters, all meanings.

And through these pleadings with you, my friends and dear readers, I only want to convey to you that these are absolutely hitting a nerve into the core of that which feels secure, that which truly is secure, and that which has or will never be naturally secure… and thereby, all of these pleadings matter.

The coward threatens when he is safe…

—Goethe

★SATURDAY FORECAST


Cancer Disseminating Moon—November 12

These monthly lunarly squares to Chiron, from Cancer, look and feel not only as a re-triggering or re-wounding, or something new more likely occurring that targets discomfort, pain, or insensitivity… but also as an opportunity for you to take back the control over whatever it may be and counter it.

Today’s monthly lunarly square to Chiron, from Cancer, occurs through a degree—different from last month’s degree—denotes character… and upon this note—the strength and depth thereof.

Another perspective notes this degree via ‘determination’…

Either way, this degree boasts will power.

This degree refers to “man’s belief in his supremacy… and his unshakable confidence in his ability to handle whatever arises in the practical and everyday world…”

A commentary regarding this degree from 1953 suggests ‘any individual must rule his environment or surrender his own potentialities forever.’

As the old adage so strongly suggests: know thyself.

Our willpower shapes our character, and arguably—it shapes our personal reality… and these energies are likely think today—it is unlikely anyone will readily give in to anything, release any personal authority, or compromise in any way. However. Inflexibility, however abundant today, could actually prove to be a disadvantage… each circumstance will vary.

Either way, above all, today’s energies will likely offer opportunity for you to understand, more deeply and more intuitively, your own boundaries, as well as the depths of your character at this stage in your evolution…

We can only give as much as we’re able to at any given time…

We can only understand as much as we’re able to at any given time within our own personal multi-layered evolving journey…

We can only determine our sights and our goals and our wills upon the equivalent of what we’re consciously aware of thereof.

Tis in ourselves that we are thus or thus. Our bodies are our gardens to the which our wills are gardeners.

—William Shakespeare
