ARIES:  An affirming trine between Saturn and Chiron supports your inner life, including healing in the areas of trust and intimacy.  Mars’ ingress into Capricorn on the 16th energizes your working life, ambitions, and the desire to be acknowledged as an effective person.  The Sun’s shift into fellow air sign Sagittarius on the 21st draws your attention up and outward as you focus on travel, publishing, marketing, and legal affairs.  Education of any kind supports expansion of the mind.  Venus arrives in your financial sector on the 21st, enhancing your partner’s resources and your savings planning.

TAURUS:  Partnership dynamics improve and expand in a charming manner as Venus shifts into your 7th house on the 21st.  She brings healing balm to misunderstandings and opens the door to agreements and connections.  Understanding arrives this week, helping you begin the planning process with important others in your world.  Listen for interesting developments on the 17th.  A supportive energy helps build foundations with others and provides structure within teaching and healing environments.  The Sun’s ingress into your 8th house of shared resources, trust, and investments (both financial and emotional) occurs on the 21st.  This is not a time to go it alone—reach out for the support and understanding you need for your next evolutionary step.

GEMINI:  Endings in order to prepare for fresh beginnings are in the frame as Mars transits into your 8th house on the 16th and energizes your internal landscape, psychology, and self-assessment.  Financial dealings may be a focus, so watch your spending and use of credit cards.  Work and career are sublimely supported through the remainder of the month. Set up the day-to-day structures that support your vocational goals.  The Sun’s move into your 7th house of others on the 21st suggests a time when the others in your world hold more sway in your day-to-day decisions.  Retrograde Mercury and the Sun unite in the areas of schedule, health, and details while contacting the North Node, bringing insight into future developments.

CANCER:  Mars ingresses into your 7th house of others on the 16th and raises energy levels and engagements with others in your world.  Those other folks have needs, desires, and in some cases demands that will challenge you—handle them the most enlightened way possible.  Reinforcements are at hand in the form of a beautiful trine between Saturn and Chiron, pulling you forward, grounding you, and helping to create boundaries between your heart’s desires and the philosophical mind.  Seeing the big picture and attributing meaning to the everyday helps you move you through.  The Sun shifts into your 6th house of work, deadlines, to-do lists, health regimes, and co-workers.

LEO:  Insight arrives on the 17th as Mercury makes contact with the Sun and North Node in your 4th house of home and security.  A supportive energy enhances the structures in your personal life and the emotional and financial resources in your areas of trust and healing.  Mars moves into the area of work, health regimes, co-workers, pet care, and your personal services. You are more busily engaged in the daily schedule over the next six weeks.  The Sun shifts into fellow fire sign Sagittarius on the 21st, bringing a breath of fresh air to your playtime and leisure pursuits—life lightens up!

VIRGO:  Mercury makes contact with the Sun and North Node (again), upping your awareness around personal and professional trends.  Mars moves out of the area of home and family and transits into your 5th house of fun and adventure—follow your heart!  A supportive trine between Saturn and healing Chiron forms a bridge of communication and asks for structure in your healing communications with others.  As Venus makes her ingress into your 3rd house your mind relaxes as you assimilate all that has transpired in the areas of buying/selling, sibling relationships, and communications.  The Sun’s annual transit into your 4th house of home and family picks up where Mars left off. This energy reframes any struggles or conflicts and raises awareness in the most personal aspects of your life.

LIBRA:  Interactions with others focus on home and family when Mars moves into your 4th house on the 16th.  Hard work in the home, rather than conflict, is the best use of this energy. Saturn’s trine to Chiron promises support financially in the areas of real estate, family, healing, work, and the daily routine.  Venus shifts into your 2nd house of earned income on the 21st. Your ability to draw resources to you is strong through December 15th.   The Sun transits your 3rd house of travel, communication, and connections on the 21st, commencing an active time of information sharing and exchange.

SCORPIO:  Saturn in your sign reaches out to Chiron in a supportive trine. Structure unfolds in your personal expression, creative ideals, and anything heart centered.  This is the time for creating boundaries, and your labors of love and love itself will benefit as you commit to your ideals.  Mercury makes contact with the Sun on the 17th as both visit the North Node, bringing awareness and personal planning to the fore.  Venus moves into your sign on the 15th and ushers in a graceful period of validation and support from others.  Circle the first two weeks of December for personal makeovers that reinforce your attractiveness and self-confidence.  Mars revs up your communication sector on the 16th. You will be more active in the areas of local environment, buying/selling, communications, and education. The Sun moves into your 2nd house of self-esteem and confidence on the 21st and places more focus on you and your talents.

SAGITTARIUS:  Bridges form and unite the subconscious to your personal areas of security, home, and safety.  The trine between Saturn and Chiron offers you structure and healing in your inner world, raising your ability to be comfortable and secure while engaging in your personal journey.  On the 17th Mercury conjuncts the Sun and North Node in the 12th house of the past, creativity, spiritual awakening, and dreams—pay attention to the insights you receive on this day.  Your new solar year is upon you. The Sun’s ingress into your sign on the 21st assimilates your growing instincts into conscious awareness.  Mars energizes your earnings sector and motives you to earn more and spend more through the end of December!

CAPRICORN:  Any lethargy will dissipate as Mars moves into your sign on the 16th and heralds a time for physical work, autonomous projects, and the confidence to move on personal desires.  The trine between Saturn and Chiron makes a structural bridge between friendships, groups, and teams to communications, education, agreements, writing, and speaking projects.  Venus helps the process when she ingresses into your 11th house on the 21st, creating avenues for harmony in your social groups and professional associations.  The Sun enters the behind-the-scenes house of rest, relaxation, volunteerism, non-profit work, and spirituality on the 21st and helps you empty out and rejuvenate in preparation for your new solar year next month.

AQUARIUS:  Mars transits your 12th house from the 16th until the end of December. Allow for more down time and rest.  This placement also enjoys works done in private, spiritual practice, and awareness of anger and fears from the past.  The trine between Saturn and Chiron builds supportive structures within career aspirations and the talents you bring to the table.  Venus enhances these efforts as she moves into your 10th house on the 21st (through December 15th), enhancing your appeal, charm, and ability to influence.  The Sun’s annual shift into your 11th house on the 21st highlights four weeks of social activity, connections with friends, and associations.

PISCES:  Now that Chiron is direct in your 1st house of identity and how others perceive you, the compassionate teacher receives a practical and supportive trine from the practical and committed Saturn.  Areas of enhancement and support include marketing, media, legal affairs, educational activities, travel, and publishing.  Bringing more of your sensitivity and mentoring abilities to these areas will serve you well.  Also, supportive education and information is available for your healing journey.  Venus brings more pleasure and ease to these areas when she makes her ingress into the 9th house on the 21st.  Public life and reputation become more important as the Sun moves into your 10th house of visibility on the 21st.

Week Beginning Friday, November 9th, 2012

ARIES:  Spiritual awareness and insight gain traction as Neptune and Chiron move stationary direct in the area of life concerned with the past, instinct, intuition, and creativity.  Hazy yearnings and wistful daydreams gain strength and clarity, encouraging you to work on your life from the inside out.  Where you focus your attention has considerable energy, so strive for the highest and the best within your life designs.  This is truly an opportunity to be the author of your life, which equates to true leadership.  The New Moon Solar Eclipse on the 13th is like a super powered New Moon, urging you to make quick decisions and carry them out with expediency. But let situations unfold in their own time, knowing that patience is wise in the areas of commitment, investment, shared resources, intimacy, and trust. 

TAURUS:  The social sector of your life has been on hold since last June, but now both Neptune and Chiron move direct in the area governing social contacts, friendships, technology-based projects, personal goals, and desires. That which has been in the gestation phase takes on more shape as the weeks unfold. Even so, the areas of partnership agreements, client situations, and personal relationships are best served by biding your time.  The New Moon Solar Eclipse on the 13th indicates fresh starts over the next few weeks and months, yet developments are still undergoing much-needed internal evaluation.

GEMINI:  The New Moon Solar Eclipse on the 13th heralds winds of change in your daily living, responsibilities, and work schedules.  Changes may occur in the areas of work (a lateral move, not a promotion), co-workers and employees, pet additions, and health. But be patient—you are still in the gestation phase.  As you move into December things become clearer and your confidence grows.  As Neptune and Chiron move direct in your ambitions zone you can anticipate that whatever has been unclear will gain clarity as the weeks and months unfold.

CANCER:  Catalytic moments are typical with New Moon Solar Eclipses. Much of the architecture and dream development that has been taking place internally will manifest outwardly, as the Eclipse on the 13th falls in the area of heart-driven desires.  The areas affected are those governed by passion and desire, including children, creativity, and love affairs.  Take your time with commitment and iron clad agreements, however, as you are poised for clearer understanding in December.  Neptune and Chiron move direct (where they have been retrograde since June), encouraging gains in the areas of academics, legal matters, foreign travel, spiritual beliefs, and marketing efforts.

LEO:  More commitment and responsibility in your personal life is the mandate of Saturn.  The New Moon Solar Eclipse on the 13th heralds change, and any developments are meant to grow a stronger you in the areas of security and self confidence.  This is the perfect time to review your financial picture while homing in on what you need to experience a safe home, both literally and emotionally.  Another level of healing and awareness unfolds as Neptune and Chiron move direct in the area of life governing psychological wellness, the ability to trust yourself and others, and financial goals.

VIRGO:  Be thankful for the extra space you have to think and rest.  Your communication style is the focus at the New Moon Solar Eclipse on the 13th and time is on your side regarding writing, speaking, and educational projects.  Allow time for seeds of thoughts to take root. The time for contracts, agreements, and commitments arrives in December.  Neptune and Chiron move forward this week in the zone of partnerships.  Fresh developments have gone underground since June, allowing for a time of gestation and integration.  Now, as the weeks and months unfold, new situations arise, asking you to apply all that you have learned over the past several months.

LIBRA:  The Times They Are a-Changin’.  Glimmers of insight may appear and help with some savvy financial planning, developing revenue-generating avenues, and home and property investments.  Allow time for this to unfold as the New Moon Solar Eclipse on the 13th creates new possibilities and drive in the areas of income, talents, and strengthening your skills and abilities.  Neptune and Chiron move direct (after a 5-month retrograde period) in the area of daily living, pets, health, the services you offer, and your daily schedule.  Vision and inspiration gather steam in your daily life – the more fluid and comfortable you can make things, the better!

SCORPIO:  Life is changing, you are changing, and circumstances are changing!  You are ready to feel more in control of your identity, physicality and the impact you make on those around you. After a 2.5-year preparation mode your engagement with the world around you receives a power surge from the New Moon Solar Eclipse in your sign on the 13th.  But as Mercury retrogrades back into your sign on the 14th take your time to think things through.  Chiron and Neptune move direct in the area of life ruling heart, passion, love, and offspring, furthering the energy convergence.

SAGITTARIUS:  Your inner world is due for an overhaul.  Supportive structures regarding your inner journey, spiritual awakening, and issues from the past are coming into alignment.  The New Moon Solar Eclipse in your 12th house on the 13th signals that it is time to listen to your instincts.  You are ready to learn more about the energies in this world and how to work with manifestation (such as by saying Gratitude Prayers).  Neptune and Chiron move direct this week in the house of the soul, inner security, and your emerging spiritual self, furthering the energetic engagement.

CAPRICORN:  Building structure in the areas of technology projects, groups, teams, and personal goals receives a power surge from the New Moon Solar Eclipse on the 13th in your 11th house.  Trust that some agreements and commitments are still in the finalizing stages as Mercury retrogrades back into this area.  The insights you gain from simply “being” and remaining fluid will serve you well as you move into December.  Both Chiron and Neptune move direct after a 5-month retrograde period, adding inspiration and dream weaving to your thoughts and communications. Take your time.

AQUARIUS:  Deal with confusing situations in realistic terms and remember that confusion is often a result of trying to make decisions too soon.  Not knowing your career direction, life direction, or where decisions are coming from is not a failing but simply an indication that the time is not quite ripe for such proclamations. Don’t be fooled into thinking that you have a limited time for reaching agreements and making decisions on the 13th when the New Moon Solar Eclipse commences in your 10th house of public life. As Mercury retrogrades into this very area on the 14th, you will have plenty of time to ponder. December will bring the new developments and information needed to help you make the necessary decisions.

PISCES:  Publishing, foreign travel/moves, professional advancement, education, and marketing activities receive a shot of energy at the New Moon Solar Eclipse on the 13th.  But decision makers, partners, and important others are not ready for commitments, agreements, and contracts, so allow time for information to gel. December brings a clearer mental energy for everyone involved.  Neptune and Chiron move direct in your sign after a 5-month retrograde period. As these two inspirational energies move forward, hand in hand, your self-awareness and self-confidence are on an upward trend, creating inspiration, comfort, and peacefulness.
