November 18-24 2013 Astrology Forecast: Sagittarius Sun

sagittarius silhouetteThe Sun enters expansive Sagittarius this week. Our local star also calls for life-affirming altered states as it squares Neptune.

Chiron turns direct, Mars and Jupiter form an energizing sextile, and another sextile between Venus and Saturn stabilizes business relationships.

Communication is turbocharged as Mercury aspects three outer planets. And paradigm shifts in your higher calling are energized by a Vesta-Uranus-Pluto T-square.

11/18 (Mon)

No major astrology events.

11/19 (Tue)

Abundant energy for warriorship, initiation, sexuality and new ventures is available with Mars sextile Jupiter. With Mars in Virgo, consider directing some of this energy into healing or service activities.

Chiron turns direct

Chiron turns direct today. It’s a good time to start acting on any healing or mentoring plans you’ve been making since Chiron turned retrograde on 6/16.

Chiron turns direct at 9° Pisces. Any sensitive points in your natal chart between 6° and 12° in a mutable sign — Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius or Pisces — will be strongly affected as Chiron stations. If emotional or psychological wounding occurs, this healing invocation may help. This Chiron station can also help you step more powerfully into your own abilities as a mentor or healer.

11/20 (Wed)

Scorpionic Mercury aspects three outer planets today! A Mercury-Uranus quincunx can help you receive intuitive flashes, especially if you make quiet space to receive them. A Mercury-Chiron trine can help heal obsessive thoughts. It can be helpful to seek healing or mentoring under this aspect, or provide these services to others.

Today’s third and final Mercury aspect, a sextile to Pluto, empowers deep investigation and research work. It can also help you gain new insights into occult practices, transformation and sacred sexuality.

11/21 (Thu)

Vesta can represent your devotion to a higher cause beyond your own selfish interests. As this asteroid goddess quincunxes Neptune, is your selfless service flowing with ease, or suffering from confusion or dissolution?

If the former, carry on! If the latter, is it time to change how you’re contributing? Or perhaps to withdraw your energies from this cause and redirect them into one that’s more in alignment with you now?

The Sun enters Sagittarius at 10:48 PM. Relish the energies of expansion, spirituality, higher education, and openness to foreign ways that our local star radiates for the next month. And don’t forget to enjoy the Sagittarian qualities of joy, enthusiasm and celebration!

11/22 (Fri)

No major astrology events.

11/23 (Sat)

Business relationships receive flowing support as Capricornian Venus sextiles Saturn. This aspect can also help stabilize relationships of all kinds. In addition, this is a good time to evaluate whether the time and energy you’re putting into a specific relationship is providing a satisfactory return on your investment.

11/24 (Sun)

Wednesday’s Mercury-Uranus quincunx may have required you to make a conscious adjustment to receive intuitive flashes. But today’s Mercury-Uranus biquintile can slip those “text messages from God” to you like magic. Just be sure to act on them as soon as you get them!

Sun-Neptune Square

A Sun-Neptune square can fuel a powerful desire for altered states, especially with the Sun in can’t-get-enough Sagittarius. But why dose yourself with substances when infinitely more blissful altered states are available with a simple invocation?

Some may experience confusion, aimlessness or deception under this aspect. But the more spiritually conscious you are, the more this square will fill you with the urge to move ever deeper into states of divine union. You may also be called to manifest the creative inspiration you’re receiving from your Muse.

T-square: Vesta-Uranus-Pluto

Ready for revolutionary transformation in how you serve a higher cause? Then stay flexible and open to your inner guidance as Vesta, Uranus and Pluto form a T-square. This aspect pattern peaks on 12/8 and ends on 12/21.

You may be called to take your service to a new level. Or, on the opposite extreme, you may be called to abandon your current path and switch to something completely new. The waxing or waning of your enthusiasm will be a reliable indicator.

Void-of-Course Moons

It’s best to avoid starting important new projects or making major purchases during void-of-course Moons. “Business as usual” is the optimal strategy. Void-of-course Moons occur when the Moon has made her last major Ptolemaic aspect, but has not yet moved into her next sign.

11/19, 11:00 am – 11/20, 6:25 am (Cancer)
11/22, 2:12 am – 6:58 pm (Leo)
11/24, 3:59 am – 11/25, 7:12 am (Virgo)
