Stargazing— Week of November 12th through November 18th, 2018

Nov 12, 2018 | Monthly Astrology|Stargazing

Last Thursday Jupiter made its entrance into Sagittarius, the sign of spontaneity and excitement. This transit of Jupiter in it’s favorite sign, encourages you to take advantage of every opportunity that comes your way, even if you aren’t normally the adventurous type

Jupiter in Sagittarius also reminds us to trust in something higher than ourselves, and that things have a way of working out on their own. Moderation won’t come naturally now, but there’s always a way to have a great time without being irresponsible and reckless. Trust the Universe to bring in balance.

Mars is the star of the week as it moves from Aquarius, where it has been for six months, and moves into Pisces. Mercury retrogrades in Sagittarius on Friday as Venus turns back into direct motion in Libra.

The Moon is in serious Capricorn on Monday and Tuesday, so tend to practical tasks and responsibilities.

Tuesday and Wednesday supports meeting with friends and sharing innovative ideas. Begin to make out your Holiday list, but don’t shop or mail cards out until Mercury goes direct on December 6th.

On Thursday afternoon, Mars moves into Pisces until early January. Because the warrior was retrograde over the summer, meaning that he spent an abnormally long time in Aquarius, the energy will feel very different. Mars aggressive drive may feel toned down but can bring in a creative and spiritual atmosphere. Pisces is soft, intuitive and compassionate. Open up to a higher vision for your life, and tune in to how you can take steps to bring forth a new level of your spiritual side into you life. This energy can also help to “put out fires” so let’s pray that that happens in California.

On Friday, Venus ends her retrograde cycle since October 5th, and mental Mercury begins his retrograde cycle lasting until December 6th. Your values have been shifting over the past six weeks and now it is time to rethink how you can adapt your outer life to those inner changes. The Moon is in sensitive Pisces on Friday and Saturday, great for a movie, meditation, some fantasy romance, or spiritual activities.

Take time out over the weekend to reassess what is working in your life and what isn’t. If you discover that you have mad some poor decisions over the past six months, time to readjust or make amends. Mars new energy helps you unlock your hidden potential and become the best “you” that you can be. And really, what’s more exciting than that?
