We are now in Sagittarius Season! Today the Sun is at 0° of Sagittarius, coming closer to colliding with Jupiter within the next few days! With the opposing Moon in 0° of Gemini, making today a very special day.
Full Moons are climaxing experiences, where the energy is more likely to feel explosive and heightened. Oppositions offer us contrast, which helps define what we like or don’t like, need or don’t need. It provides us with information, even though it’s through seeing the good and the bad, it helps us define what we’d like to see more of. Full Moon’s often illuminate issues so we may have an opportunity to fully see what’s going on. This is ultimately to force us to be fully conscious and aware. We see through connecting with others things we may have going on underneath the surface within ourselves.
In Astrology the Sun governs over conscious awareness, it’s is the source of life! Where the Moon is our more subjective unconscious or emotional body. When the light of the Sun illuminates the Moon, it can act like a cosmic spotlight and this is why full moons can have such a powerful effect on us.
The universe works in subtle and sometimes not so subtle ways. To better prepare us for the month to come let’s look at the energy forecast for the weeks ahead!
November 24th, 2018
The first major shift will be Neptune going direct in Pisces at 13° on November 24th, 2018!
Neptune went into retrograde motion at 16° on June 18th, 2018 and over the course of the past few months we’ve really faced a lot of issues from the past that has been stopping us from moving forward. It’s possible that we’ve realized ways we may have been escaping ourselves and not dealing with our emotions. It’s now time to move forward deeper into our soul purpose. This is our chance to let go and feel our way through it with all our heart.

New Moon in Sagittarius
I foresee this to be the New Moon that will set us off for the journey of the next 12 years! This is a very Jupiterian time, where things are fun, optimistic and opportunities abound! If we continue to focus on growth this time of great surrender will continue to guide you onward and upward! There aren’t too many aspects going on in the universe on this day but the few that do occur are very key in understanding the energy dynamic of is New Moon. I will provide further in-depth information on that in a future post!
It appears to me that Uranus is the powerhouse planet on this NM, So expect this New Moon to force us out of our comfort zones! Uranus is truly unpredictable and offers quick and sudden shifts in perspective. Let’s just say this New Moon will be strongly influenced by the need to look at this a new way, and to consider unconventional, untried options!
This NM is going to be about really settling into the expanded version of ourselves internally. There’s a quest we are on, a journey that can only really happen when your willing to have faith that something greater exists within you, and that force can propel you in the direction you envision! Sagittarius is ruled by Jupiter and traditionally Neptune! So there’s a quality Sagittarius that is not so in touch with reality. Here we are working with faith-based energy, along with the fire of Sagittarius… We can really make some great things happen in our lives!
I do warn of this Moon square to Neptune/Mars conjunction on this day!!! Our perspectives may be distorted in some way. The Sun represents our vitality and this New Moon square to Mars/Neptune can lead us to deceive, be deceived, be very careful around this time. Personal relationships may be subject to dishonesty and deception. Try to avoid neglecting responsibilities, which it may be easy to do under this influence. More on this as we get closer to the New Moon!
December 7th, 2018
Soon after this New Moon, Mars comes and transits over Neptune at 5:55 am PST on December 7th!
Let’s dive into what this will bring to the surface for us. Mars is drive, passion and sexual instinct and in Pisces this energy is being put into spirituality, our dreams, our soul’s purpose. In the highest way it can be used it is propelling us toward divination, and ultimate alignment with our higher selves. On the flip side, escapism is at an all-time high! How are you using this potent Neptune energy?
The same energy that is used to imagine your highest ideals can also be wasted when trying to escape yourself, your emotions and essentially your own soul! As Mars crosses over Neptune we will feel the Neptunian energy on full blast! This is an intuitive time of surrender to the life we envision, and hold so dear to our souls. The purpose for our incarnation is unfolding, are you hearing the subtle intuitive call? Mars in Pisces will be directing us by our own intuition, so I know I am making it a priority to pray, meditate and actively surrender. During this transit you will want to be in touch with the energy body, the soul body and what better way than calming the mind that so often gets in the way. Surrender is done in any way that connects the subconscious mind to the body, and encourages connection to your Spirit. Mars transiting over Neptune will bring us physically in touch with our highest visions. As we sleep, dreams will continue to amplify over the course of what’s left of 2018. Be very mindful of emotions as they are a guiding force in the coming days. Align with your soul.
Here’s a segment on Neptune to offer further insight into the powerful energy we are so intimately working with at this time in history. In medical astrology, Neptune governs over pineal gland function, the right brain function, the appendix, and membrane permeability.
Neptune resists incarnation and where it is prominent there is an aching sorrowfulness and a longing not to be in this harsh world of restriction and responsibility, which can lead to escapist behaviors and addictions. An addiction has been defined as something that produces an altered state and promises to improve the quality of life but actually makes it worse. Addictive substances are usually harmful to the health and prolonged use of them is tantamount to slow suicide. It has been said that behind addictions is a deep and sacred state that the addictive substance or behavior will never satisfy. Healing comes by finding a means of accessing the authentic state that the addiction is pointing towards, yet is at the same time blocking. Neptune can also be linked with the pineal gland, which mediates altered states of consciousness and right-brain function.
