The recent Full Moon in Gemini and Venus being Retrograde are in our rear view mirrors now.
So now we are in the waning half of the lunar cycle, and we still have Mercury in Retrograde motion.
Later on in early December, on the day of the New Moon in Sagittarius, Mercury will also go Direct that day: December 6. That day also represents the first winds of change for Eclipse Season 2019 blowing in.
So on December 6 there will be a strong feeling of moving forward.
From now till then, we are moving kinda downward and inward in anticipation and preparation for that important movement forward after the 6th.
For the last few months we have been confronting and attempting to resolve and heal various relationships and relationship patterns.
This has been and is essential, as working out these relationship patterns is helping to build the foundation of our New Chapter of life more fully and strongly.
No one wants too much heavy baggage to carry as we travel more fully into this New Chapter.
Some have gone back into childhood wounds and issues, or even past life relationship issues in order to work through the inner demons of relating that keep us stuck.
Letting go of the past relationship baggage means we need to let go of the old stories and dramas in our heads and hearts.
For instance, if you are telling yourself that nothing ever works out for you in relationships, you need to confront that story inside yourself.
If you have told yourself that all men are selfish or that all women are conniving, for instance, then that will limit your ability to draw in men or women who are good for you.
And you know sometimes it is so difficult to let go of these stories, as we apparently have much proof from the past that will prove our point.
But this is the chicken that came before the egg, as believing something will tend to make it happen.
But regardless of which came first, the negative event or the negative belief, confronting the belief will serve you well.
Maybe a large part of the true reason no relationship has ever worked for you before is that you do not really like or respect yourself. This can be worked on and resolved or healed sufficiently to help you let go of the story and attract better relationships.
So now, with Mercury still Retrograde, Venus not yet back to “normal”, and the lunar cycle in its darkening phase; we still are pausing and maybe rewinding our life memories in order to build healthier more functional relationships and lives.
Remember also that Jupiter is now in expansive, progressive, inspiring, uplifting, and adventurous Sagittarius.
For the next year, while Jupiter stays in Sagittarius, you will have more ability to see things from a wider perspective, and more help in finding meaning or resolution for issues that have previously held you back.
And also remember that in January 2019 we will experience 2 more powerful eclipses, eclipses that are meant to help us break out of stuck places in our minds, hearts, and lives.
And this weekend, going into Monday/Tuesday, we will feel things opening up more as the Sun makes exact conjunction with Jupiter in Sagittarius on the 26th.
For many this will translate into desires for expansiveness, freedom, and/or travel and adventure.
Just keep in mind that Mercury is still Retrograde, so it is best not to be too impulsive or to jump to conclusions too quickly. That is one of the “side-effects” of the rising of spirit from Jupiter and Sagittarius.
Best now to process our thoughts and emotions, to find higher meaning for our lives, and to get more in touch with what inspires us.
You can think more about final decisions, or taking action after the 6th or December, and probably not till after early January.
We enter the 4th and last quarter of the lunar cycle on Thursday the 29th, with the Moon in Virgo and Sun in Sagittarius.
We will receive a dose of sobering reality to counter any ideas or plans that are over inflated, grandiose, or in some cases just too positive.
Sag has a tendency to see the “glass as half full”, while Virgo has a tendency to see the “glass as half empty”. Truth lies somewhere in between.
On Friday the 30th, Venus in Libra will oppose Uranus in Aries.
The days surrounding this planetary event will bring to some a breakthrough or awakening around relationships that have previously felt stuck. For others it will be a breaking away or freeing from an old relationship pattern or even liberation from a person.
Venus is no longer Retrograde, but it still has not gone back to where it started in Retrograde, which is a significant fact. It will be back to that place on December 17, completing that Venus cycle and completing the investigation and repairing of relationship.
Remember this can be a romantic relationship but also can be a family one, or friendship, or work related relationship.
In the greater world now, everything is certainly way out of healthy balance. So much is shaking up and breaking down. As we have been letting you know would happen, the stock market has been going down.
Saturn in Capricorn has been opposing the USA natal Venus and Jupiter in Cancer. And Uranus has been squaring the USA natal Pluto in Capricorn in its 2nd house (money, comfort, and security).
Eclipse Season will bring that same transiting Saturn to oppose the USA natal Sun in Cancer, while a Solar Eclipse New Moon in Capricorn will also oppose the USA Sun in Cancer.
Saturn and Capricorn are not expansive. They contract and limit. They represent gravity and hence bringing down to Earth.
This will mean more stock market downfall, though it may have a short up-lift as part of the process.
Our economy is transforming. Eventually, and hopefully there will be a good balance between capitalism and socialism as the result.
And Trump will face more slings and arrows thrown his way, especially by Mueller who heads the investigations of Trump.
And combative issues with Iran, Russia, Syria, China, and North Korea will soon expand also.
Cries for solutions for Climate Change will get louder and louder now also.
All is part of the enormous transformation of the country and world. Uncontrolled fear and panic are our only real enemies.
We are in certain movement toward the Age of Aquarius; and this current transition into a New Chapter of our collective and personal lives leads us into that New Age, which will begin with baby steps in the 2020’s, pretty much after the next presidential election.
Keep the faith, keep fighting for what you believe in, be aligned with the natural energies, frequencies and cycles of the Universe, and keep your center and integrity during this roller coaster ride of our lives now.
Till next week,
