Forecast 11/22

The moon is void-of-course/voc* at 12:53 a.m. ET. The Sun enters Sagittarius at 4:38 a.m. ET which begins the last phase of Autumn as it shape shifts to Winter.

wishSagittarius calls for flexible spirit and a passion for Life. The Moon enters Sagittarius at 7:19 a.m. Very soon after, at 7:32 a.m., the Sagittarius New Moon occurs and with it, the invitation to explore and reach for your truth and justice. This is a highly auspicious New Moon, so close your eyes and make a wish!

There is no direct strategy or map for success. There is, however, indications that those who encourage success through opening their hearts are poised to receive it. Depending on your nature, the Saturn in Scorpio influence at this time may not pump you with a need to go out. Saturn is the planet that symbolizes limitations. Yet if you keep your eye on the dream, you can conjure more resources than you know.

two-vetsThe Sabian Symbol** for this New Moon is “Retired Army Veterans Gather To Reawaken Old Memories”. This is a particularly poignant image to come just a couple of weeks after Veterans Day, although the symbol is seldom taken on face value. Nonetheless, I do see this indicates the potential for new perspective on present policies for vets. Like any group or individual, veterans could harness the power of this New Moon to aim for Justice and greater support.


steps outdoorTaking the image symbolically, think of a group who gathers because of a common story. In the case of “retired”, they have finished the reason that brought them together. “Army” suggests defense and strategic planning, so the theme suggests past defenses. Reawakening old memories can certainly be about the glories of war, or it can be friendships, lessons learned from battle and survival.

Putting the symbol in context with the position of the planets paints an opportunity to tease out the old ghosts and learn from the past. This New Moon has a strong Love vibration to it that trumps any fears. There is also tremendous indications of growth and knowledge.

Wealth expands through relationships, so you might want to reach out to some of your veterans from the past. A Mercury/Jupiter picture in the late evening indicates that too much information may overwhelm; sleep on it and turn your computer off earlier than later.

In its pure form, a Sagittarius New Moon provides a threshold for travel, religious seeking, legal insight and publishing opportunities. It encourages us to see a global perspective and stretch to greater wisdom. At the very least, plan a trip. It doesn’t have to be soon, but it does help to stimulate possibilities.

*The Moon VOC/Void-of-Course… in Scorpio, you may find a lost object when you clean. If you’re trying to finish something up you may have trouble ending it.. take it as far to the crossroads and then step away. Silence is golden which may cause frustration if you need information… research other possibilities.. It might be better to curl up with a mystery, if possible.

** We are still in the process of understanding the Sabian symbols, which were channeled in 1925. The spiritualist astrologer Marc Edmund Jones, took Elsie Wheeler, a clairvoyant confined to a wheelchair to a San Diego park with a project. He put a symbol for each of the 360° of the zodiacal wheel on 360 cards. She proceeded to come up with visual phrases for each one of them. They were done in random order and they have a magic that is hard to decipher, yet feels totally right.
