STARGAZING — Week of Nov. 20th through Nov. 26th, 2017

Nov 17, 2017 | Monthly Astrology|Stargazing

If you are traveling for the coming USA Thanksgiving Day holiday, go easy if you are starting early in the week. The Sun changes signs, moving into Sagittarius, Neptune in Pisces moves forward, and a nice Mercury trine will clear your head and take you out of any depression.

Tuesday, Nov. 21st the Sun moves from Scorpio into joyous Sagittarius. This brings you out of the dark Scorpio depth into a need to connect with something bigger than yourself, and perhaps away from your home turf. You can begin to feel more positive and optimistic. Sagittarian energy can bring overdoing it and exaggeration, it also brings the chance to apply hope, faith and charity into our lives.

On Wednesday, the 22nd, Neptune ends his retrograde cycle since mid-June, which can produce a sleepy, not paying attention energy for holiday travel. However, it does begin a new cycle of opening to your intuition and higher vision. It’s easier than ever to believe that when you wish upon a star, your dreams come true.

Mars makes a challenging square to Pluto. USA times zones will either be asleep or just waking up under this forceful energy, so pay attention to what you are feeling early Sunday morning. Gentle exercise would be helpful to keep this raw energy under control.

Tuesday and Wednesday is an odd combination of a hard-working Capricorn moon, and Neptune slowing down to end its retrograde cycle since June 16. This can produce a tug-of-war energy; the “I want to nap” feeling while the Capricorn moon is telling you to accomplish everything that needs doing. The best thing here is to make a list for the grocery store or Christmas shopping since this is a forgetful energy. Be sure to be aware and careful of tired drivers who are not paying attention on the road through Wednesday evening.

Thanksgiving Day will be busy but upbeat. The USA Thanksgiving Day holiday has the moon moving into friendly Aquarius, making start times to your gatherings socially supportive. Aquarius likes idealistic and eclectic conversations, so invite unusual or new people to the table.

Shopping days on the 24th and 25th include an Aquarius moon and Mercury making harmony with Uranus- both combinations that suggest technology sales will be great. This energy puts is on the cutting edge for thinking outside the box. When we allow our minds to wander out into the universe, we bring in unusual and surprising revelations with success is just around the bend. 2018 is sure to be a year of revelation and change.

This Aquarius energy continues through most of Saturday, and this is the sign of new technology and innovation. Be sure to get a hint from others about holiday gifts if you are shopping. Get it all done before Mercury retrogrades on December 2nd. There are also pleasant travel planetary aspects for those who are traveling back home on the weekend.
