Weekly Astrology Forecast – November 29 – December 5, 2021

Excerpt from Patreon – We begin the week with Mercury’s superior conjunction to the Sun on November 29. This aspect marks the moment that Mercury transitions from morning star to evening star. For a few weeks, Mercury will be lost in the beams of the Sun, unobservable from planet Earth. Mercury will also be at apogee, farthest away from Earth. Whilst it’s possible that we may experience mental illumination around this time, brilliant ideas or a sense of cosmic knowing, it’s also possible that we may find that information difficult to ground into reality, perhaps until Mercury is visible again. The shadow is that we can become too attached to our opinions and ideas, identifying so closely with them that the ‘I’ is not separate from thought. This is perhaps more of an issue this time a...

The Astrology Of September 2021 – The OTHER

Welcome to September, welcome to the Libra season! While we’re literally still in the Virgo season, Venus, Mercury and Mars are in Libra, so September feels more Libra than Virgo. The shift from Virgo to Libra is extremely important and cannot be underestimated. If the first 6 signs of the zodiac, from Aries to Virgo, are about “Me”, the last 6 signs of the Zodiac, from Libra to Pisces, are about “The Other”. Even the most emotionally mature people who have done a lot of personal development, may still lack the ability to truly relate to other human beings. When we run our lives through our own script, we feel lonely and alienated, irrespective of whether we are in a relationship or not. When we truly open up to another, our ego dies (that’s why Libra’s glyph is a Sun-set) but we ‘find o...

The Libra Equinox – A Turning Point

Tropical astrology is based on the movement of the Sun and the Moon. In a solar year, we have 12 lunar cycles, and this is how we get the 12 archetypes, or the 12 signs. The Earth’s revolution around the Sun gives us the seasons, and these seasons color the expression of the 12 lunar cycles or the 12 signs.  We have 4 seasons; a new season begins when we have a solstice or an equinox. In fact, the most important astrological events in a year are the 2 equinoxes and the 2 solstices. This is when the Sun changes direction, when something about the dynamic of day/night, light/darkness changes.  September 23rd, or the Libra Equinox, is one of these important turning points.  In the Southern Hemisphere the daylight begins to increase, while in the Northern hemisphere, it’s the night that be...

Weekly Astrology Forecast November 22 – 28, 2021

Excerpt from Patreon – On November 25, Mercury then follows in the footsteps of the Sun, forming a conjunction to the South Node. The Sun and Mercury are now travelling closely together as they build towards their next conjunction. Mercury is now lost in the beams of the Sun and so maybe we find it hard to separate what we think with who we are. We can tend to identify too strongly with our opinions when the Sun and Mercury are so close together – more so with both on the South Node in the already opinionated sign of Sagittarius. We fall back on comfortable philosophies – this is what I was taught, so this is what I think! It’s important to take time to untangle our thoughts about who we are and the world at large with what we know on a deeply intuitive level. ***********************...

The Astrology of November 2021

November 2021 features an electrically charged New Moon in Scorpio, the first Eclipse of the season and the shift from relationship-obsessed Libra-Scorpio energy to the outcome-obsessed Sagittarius-Capricorn energy. Ready or not – November 2021 may be the month when you will be swept off your feet.   Let’s take a look at the most important astrological events of the month:  November 4th, 2021 – New Moon In Scorpio   On November 4th, 2021 we have a New Moon at 12° Scorpio. The New Moon has a strong Scorpio energy not only because we have the Sun and Moon in the sign of Scorpio, but because the New Moon ruler Mars, is ALSO in Scorpio – very powerful in the sign of its domicile. This is an extremely driven New Moon that won’t take no for an answer. However, the New Moo...

Weekly Astrology Forecast November 8 – 14, 2021

Excerpt from Patreon – November 12 is starred as the best day of the week with a gentle trine between the Sun in Scorpio and Neptune in Pisces. This brings a more forgiving atmosphere with a twinkle of magic. This is a time to lean into our spirituality, remember that we are part of the cosmos and all connected. Neptune encourages us to trust the universe, sometimes difficult when we are in Scorpio season as Scorpio likes to have the control. Sometimes though, we need to just go with the flow, see what life brings, listen to the whispers of our spiritual allies and our own unconscious. As the Sun is a potent creative force and Neptune is a planet connected to the imagination, this is an ideal time to tap into our inner artist. This is not however, just for painting pictures or writin...

Weekly Astrology Forecast November 15 – 21, 2021

Excerpt from Patreon – November 19 is the most important date of the week as we begin eclipse season with a lunar eclipse in Taurus. This is the first of the Taurus eclipses and the longest partial lunar eclipse of its type for over a thousand years. It feels as though the universe would like to make an impression on us, playing everything in slow motion to ensure we have time to absorb the important messages that the eclipse brings. Jupiter squaring this eclipse tells us that the tension is connected to our desire to move forward as a society, to advance, to use the opportunity for progress. But for that to happen, we are going to have to change the way we use our resources. The eclipse is likely to reveal to us where we have exhausted some of our resources as well as show us resour...

Lunar Eclipse in Taurus November 2021

The lunar eclipse occurs at 08:57 (UT) on November 19, 2021 at 27TAU14. This Full Moon in Taurus opens the new eclipse season and also gives us a hint of things to come. The eclipses are uniquely bound to the Nodes and although the Nodes are currently still in Gemini (North Node) and Sagittarius (South Node), the Nodes will move into Taurus and Scorpio in January next year. This is the first of the Taurus eclipses so it begins a story that will last for the next 18 months or so. This is also an extremely long eclipse, the longest of its type in fact for over a thousand years! This resonates with the energy of slow-moving Taurus and offers the idea that perhaps we need to take our time to incorporate the lessons of this eclipse period. With Venus, ruler of this eclipse, having entered the s...
