This week we have the full moon in Taurus and then the sun and Mercury entering Sagittarius.
Thursday, Nov. 18: Mercury in Scorpio in perfect harmony with Neptune in Pisces opens up imaginations. Also, news of good fortune. Happy 82nd to Margaret Atwood, poet, novelist and now TV script writer for her adaptation of “The Handmaid’s Tale.”
Friday, Nov. 19: Today, we have a full moon and lunar eclipse in Taurus. This is the first eclipse on the Taurus-Scorpio axis – an important eclipse since it will set the tone for the following two-year eclipse season. The lunar eclipse is square to Jupiter, asking us to set our priorities right, and it is trine to Pluto, giving us that inner drive and determination to figure out what to do next. It was Nov. 19, 1863, that Abraham Lincoln delivered his famous “Gettysburg Address”.
Saturday, Nov. 20: Lively feelings do not work well with serious situations, even today. A gift from the heavens later on is a refreshing change. Canada’s sixth Prime Minister, Sir Wilfrid Laurier, was born on Nov. 20, 1841. His image still embraces the $5 bill.
Sunday, Nov. 21: Today, the sun enters Sagittarius. Sagittarius season is the most anticipated/sought-after astrological season out there. This is when the U.S. celebrates Thanksgiving, the holidays are near and we are filled up with anticipation and hope for the future. Today, Canadian singer/songwriter Carly Rae Jepson turns 36.
Monday, Nov. 22: Getting to dinner is good. This evening is better. It was Nov. 22, 1963, that U.S. President John Kennedy was assassinated in Dallas, Tex.
Tuesday, Nov. 23: Between now and Nov. 25, the sun and then Mercury line up with the south node of the moon. When our ego (sun) and our mind (Mercury) meet the karmic point of least resistance (south node) in the sign of wisdom (Sagittarius) I can almost hear Paul McCartney singing, “When I find myself in times of trouble, Mother Mary comes to me, speaking words of wisdom, let it be.” After one month of Scorpionic turmoil, it’s time to relax and let it be. “Let it be” – not to be confused with “let it go,” which means to acknowledge what is otherwise an unquestionable truth – what is meant to be, will be, what is meant to unfold will unfold. On this day 162 years ago, Henry McCarty was born. He later was known as Billy the Kid. He was just 21 years old when he was shot dead by Sheriff Pat Garrett.
Wednesday, Nov. 24: Today, Mercury enters Sagittarius and the mood becomes even more optimistic. Mercury is in fact in detriment in Sagittarius, although you wouldn’t believe it when you look at your gregarious and optimistic Mercury in Sagittarius friends. The reason Mercury is in detriment in Sagittarius is that Mercury is the planet of unfiltered perception, of zero-bias, and let’s just say that Sagittarius is not the most unbiased sign of the zodiac, The good thing is that Sagittarius is biased toward optimism and we all need to take note of the full side of the glass from time to time, right? Joseph Brant, aka Thayendanegea, died on Nov. 24, 1807, on the shore of Burlington Beach, where a hospital named in his honour now stands.
Next week, we see Mercury conjunct the sun in Sagittarius. And more.
