This week we see Mercury and the sun together in Sagittarius.
Thursday, Nov. 25: Between Nov. 23 and 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 – 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. It was Nov. 25, 1867, that Alfred Nobel registered his fifth patent. For dynamite.
Friday, Nov. 26: The moon is once again today, void of course, until late tonight when it enters Virgo. Wait until then before starting anything new. Today is a momentous day for Egyptologists. On Nov. 26, 1922, Howard Carter broke the seal on the treasure trove of the Boy-King, Tutankhamun.
Saturday, Nov. 27: Today is the third-quarter moon in Virgo. It’s time to review our to-do lists and get more focused on accomplishment. It was Nov. 27, 1895, that the Nobel Prize was created. It came about as a result of direction from Alfred Nobel’s will.
Sunday, Nov. 28: Today, Mercury is conjunct the sun. We are already in the middle of the sun-Mercury cycle that started on Oct. 9. This is the full moon phase of the Mercury cycle, when we reap what we have sown. The good news is that Saturn beautifully supports the conjunction. Our hard work will eventually pay off. Good things do come to those who wait. Forty-eight years after inventing basketball, Canadian James Naismith died at age 78.
Monday, Nov 29: Mars in Scorpio is in perfect harmony with Neptune in Pisces. There is good news on the work front for some. Good health news for others. Both, for the truly lucky. Pong, the original video game, was first seen on Nov. 29, 1972, at Andy Capp’s Tavern in California.
Tuesday, Nov. 30: The solar system is very busy on this last day of November. The moon in Libra makes seven contacts. Mercury is busy. So are Venus and Neptune. Good fortune is everywhere. One of America’s greatest humourists was born Nov. 30, 1835, just as Halley’s Comet passed overhead. Eerily, he died on April 10, 1921, as Halley’s Comet was again very visible. Mark Twain was born Samuel Clemens and was a great friend to Nikola Tesla.
Wednesday, Dec. 1: Neptune has been retrograde in Pisces since June. Today the great gas giant turns direct. It’s the first day of putting dreams into realities. At least until next June. Dec. 1, 1955, is an important day in American history as Rosa Parks refused to move to the back of the bus. This was in Montgomery, Ala.
