November 12-19

Whatever you do, “Don’t shoot the messenger!” please! Up first this week, a little emotional disruption never hurt anyone right? Tuesday’s innovative Aquarius Moon helps us focus on what rules need to be broken until Friday. Ask this liberating moon to help you find the bondages of fear in your life so that you can elect freedom instead. When the Moon enters Pisces throughout the weekend, we’ll feel Neptune’s divine companionship and its compassion moving us beyond habit patterns that cause us pain into habit patterns for peace.

Mars leaves Aquarius on Thursday to help us fight for compassion and forgiveness in Pisces until the end of the year. Let’s look at Mars in Pisces in conversation with the marathon of retrogrades since last June. In doing so, the zodiac can continue ambitious efforts and practices that provide the gifts of completion and surrender. Now I understand surrender as releasing attachment to outcome. Surrender is never resignation. So Mars in Pisces could help us cease the appetite for control, managing and prediction. Let us offer our strategies to be reinterpreted by the Universe. Mars in Pisces is the gift of endings and since Mars enters the first sign Aries on New Year’s Day, this transit is offering us arguable the most powerful renewal and rebirth in recent astrological history.

On Friday, Venus retrograde in Libra comes to an end at 5:50am EST. Since October 5th, the zodiac’s relationship with romantic relationships and our intimacy issues were reviewed. It’s likely that we reconnected with lovers from the past for check-ins, consolations, apologies, and closure where we needed it. This was hopefully helpful because we’re reborn whenever we don’t take the past into the present. So now that we’re theoretically not carrying the dysfunction from the relationship past into the present, we can love current and future partners with depth and maturity.

We’ll have fifteen hours of Venus and Mercury both direct on Friday until Mercury retrogrades at 8:33pm. Yikes! Mercury backspins in Sagittarius first then Scorpio until December 6. Though remember the Universe is firmly invested in our growth and enlightenment. So this Mercury retrograde cycle is particularly supportive since it’ll give us the context to integrate, integrate, integrate - or “make whole” - all the retrograde experiences we’ve had since last June. Take this Mercury retrograde as a divine opportunity to assimilate the learning into your decision making so you can make more righteous momentum in the weeks ahead.
