Astro Vibrational Tapestry Report
by Starlene Breiter & Nikki Rich
Tuesday November 22 – Monday November 28, 2016
This week starts off with Mercury in Sagittarius making a sextile with Jupiter in Libra, the peak of this aspect is Tuesday, November 22 at 1:19 PM but can be felt for a few days before and after the peak. This brings about thoughts of travel and connections with loved ones. A perfect energy for starting the week of Thanksgiving off, and of course the rest of the holidays coming soon! Make your plans now and have fun with the new ideas that are coming!
Wednesday, November 23 … Mercury and Saturn finally conjoin after the build up for the past week or so. Mercury-Saturn can be a reality check. It can also be a problem with negative thinking. Really, in truth, it is critical thinking. Now, critical thinking does not have to be bad, or negative, but it is high level thinking that allows a person to reach an objective conclusion. Google tells me critical thinking is “the objective analysis and evaluation of an issue in order to form a judgment.” When we allow negativity to take hold we are no longer being objective so keep that in mind. Remind yourself that objectivity, or scientific thinking, is the appropriate way of looking at things today, even if what you see is not to your liking.
Thursday, November 24 … Jupiter squares Pluto and this reminds me of an inheritance. What sort of family “inheritance” will you be celebrating for Thanksgiving? Jupiter-Pluto can be skeletons coming out of the closet or it can be a deep appreciation for the depth of the shared family connections. There is something about wealth with Jupiter-Pluto so I ask you to consider today, on this day of Thanksgiving, what are you investing in? Metaphorically where are your resources being invested? Is it in stronger connections or is it in discord? Think about it and choose well and wisely!
Friday, November 25 … Venus is joining into a dance with the Jupiter-Pluto square from yesterday. She is in Capricorn so conjunct Pluto and squaring Venus. People are going to be cutthroat looking for a deal today! Black Friday fits Venus-Jupiter-Pluto. But on a higher note, if you are interested in conducting yourself on a more evolutionary wavelength, this aspect is an extension of yesterday with the focus being on relationships. Love, creativity, and power are all heightened at this time.
Saturday, November 26 … Mercury trine Uranus means let’s try new things! Let’s explore! Let’s laugh and joke around and do something completely unexpected. This is a great aspect for a holiday weekend since it keeps things fresh and new, even if we are engaged in traditional activities! Buying gifts today means something unusual and offbeat so it’s a great day to shop for someone who likes something different!
Sunday, November 27 … It’s a relatively quiet day with a void-of-course moon later in the day from 4:48 PM Eastern US time (that is 2:28 PM Mountain time where I live) so it’s a great day to rest and relax after a hectic (and fun!) weekend.
Monday, November 28 … no exact aspects today which is a rarity! But we are ramping up to the new moon in Sagittarius tomorrow!
Tuesday, November 29 … New moon in Sagittarius at 7 degrees 43 minutes. When we look at an individual chart to see where that occurs and what it activates we get a strong sense of how that new moon may affect an individual. For my chart it is conjunct my natal Neptune in my 3rd house … I could have the opportunity to do a lot of spiritual (both Sagittarius and Neptune) writing (3rd house) as one example. Starlene and I (Nikki) can help to look at the new moon in your chart if you like. But simply put the new moon is an infusion of positive energy and we can harness it if we so choose, and I so choose.
We start the week off when Mercury in Sagittarius comes to a sextile with Mars in Aquarius on Tuesday at 12:22 PM. Although this is the peak of the aspect it has come to this peak after several days of getting there and will last for several days more. This is a feel good aspect bringing about a feeling of positive energy and social ease. Mercury and Mars are also making a smaller aspect to Venus, called a semi-sextile which sweetens the mood even further while bringing in a feeling of harmony. Spend time with your family, loved ones and socialize during this time. This is a nice time to do things out in the world – how about some early holiday shopping?!
Mid week may feel a little lazy, especially Wednesday because the moon is void-of-course for about 14 hours. Take it easy on yourself, do not stress and allow things to unfold in a natural sense.
Friday we have Mercury in Sagittarius making a square to Neptune in Pisces that peaks at 11:04 AM. Again, this is the peak – but it culminated over a couple of days before and wanes down a few days after the peak. This aspect has us feeling a bit lazy and relaxed, especially with the way we communicate. We might feel this especially strong on Friday because Mercury and Neptune make a smaller aspect, called a sesquiquadrate to the moon in Cancer. This lunar influence is really only in affect for the day. Mixing in the moon with Mercury & Neptune has us feeling many subconscious thoughts. You may notice feelings surface from the mind and see that you are sympathetic towards other peoples feelings. The one thing to caution you about during this time is feeling impressionable. Like the child that knows no better – make sure “magic” is for real before you believe in it.
On Saturday Venus in Capricorn comes to a sextile with Neptune in Pisces at 6:03 PM. This sextile has us feeling like putting some energy and sweetness to our dreams. We want to accomplish that which we hope and wish for greatly. Ask yourself what you cherish the most. Also ask yourself how you can create that dream you desire. Then put some action behind it. Neptune is strong right now as it stations direct on Saturday and has a powerful kick to it. Neptune isn’t necessarily an action orientated planet but with its square to Mercury and sextile to Venus – we feel the mind working towards the dreams we desire.
Neptune then goes direct at 11:38 PM. Neptune has been in its retrograde phase since mid-June. Therefore it is not necessarily an event that happens but more like a season of your life. The station times when Neptune goes into a retrograde phase and out of a retrograde phase can be quite powerful though. As you see Neptune appears to be still in the sky when it is station. Neptune turning direct has us less internalizing our dreams and desires and more making those dreams and desires come to fruition. Think about the things you have been dreaming for and then put some action behind them for this time while Neptune is in its direct moving motion.
The last big thing for this week is when the sun moves into the sign of Sagittarius on Monday November 21 at 4:22 PM. This is the time to celebrate and enjoy yourself. People in the US are gorging on food to celebrate Thanksgiving this week and holiday shopping needs to come! The sun in Sagittarius is the jovial, “lets get this party started” sort of energy for all that celebrating that is to be had! Just remember things such as your budget, the times when life is not always so woo-hoo, lets have fun and of course your waistline! It is good to enjoy life just make sure you live within the means of your budget, mind and jeans! – Other than that enjoy the month of Sagittarius sun!
Gemstone: Opal is a great gemstone to work with for the week, bringing in elements of transformation and a peek to the inner soul.
Essential Oil: Angelica will help you to visualize the things that are deep in your heart, giving you the ability to reach in for them and put them on the forefront of life.
Tuesday is Election Day here in the US and there is not a lot going on today … we do have a void-of-course moon most of the day, from 8:55 AM Eastern time to 4:55 PM Eastern time so I do not expect much excitement during the day … in fact, voter turnout could be lower than usual because of this.
It is a pretty quiet week. We have some planets entering new signs but not much else going on until the new moon on Monday. The first ingress is Mars into Aquarius on early Wednesday morning. Mars represents action and Aquarius in an intellectual air sign so this placement often involves a lot of mental activity! We can put a lot of energy into our thoughts and I just want to say that what we think is important so please work on monitoring your active mind! It is your mind and you are able to think the thoughts you choose. So if you do not like what is going on inside your own head (too much negative thinking, for example), Mars in Aquarius can give you the mental energy to modify your internal landscape to help it become more enjoyable to live inside your own head.
Friday Nov 11, when Venus enters Capricorn which is good for business but not always as good for love. The best way to utilize Venus in Capricorn is to look at your relationships as investments and put some positive energy into them to see what kind of return you get!
On Saturday, Nov 12, Mercury enters Sagittarius which helps lighten the mood a bit. We will have less looks full of angst and more jokes and laughter than when Mercury was in Scorpio.
Finally, on Monday, November 14, we have the full moon in Taurus. There is something incredibly delicious about the full moon in Taurus. Taurus knows how to make themselves comfortable, and that is a very individual thing. Sometimes it is luxury items and other times is is simple meditation in the garden. Whatever it is for you the Taurus moon gives us the opportunity to reflect on that in our own lives which makes us feel more comfortable, grounded and centered.
The Sabian Symbol for 23 Taurus is A Jewelry Shop Filled With Valuable Gems. Metaphorically we all have valuable gems in our lives. What are yours and how do you care for them? This may be material items but it can also be the people in our lives, the abilities we have worked so hard to cultivate, or our moral, ethical or spiritual principles. What do you value? Do you treat that which you value as it deserves to be treated? Do you treat yourself like you too are of value?
Affirmation: It is safe to look within. All is well in my world. I am safe.
Essential Oil: Sweet Orange for it’s qualities of happiness, joy and warmth. Sweet orange also helps us to stay resolute regarding our intentions.
Gemstone: Black Tourmaline for letting go of that which no longer serves us.
Week of Tuesday, November 1 to Tuesday, November 8, 2016
We are changing things up here at the Astro Tapestry Report! We are going to start looking at a weekly overview and see how that works! Lunar aspects (aspects involving the moon) are the most common but they are also the weakest … they are no more than passing moods. So we are going to focus on the larger themes of the week and please let us know what you think about this new format!
The first major aspect for this week is on Thursday November 3, in the early morning when Mercury in Sagittarius comes to a sextile with Pluto in Capricon at 1:10 AM. This aspect has been leading up to its peak today for the last couple of days. It also wanes down in a few days too. The interesting thing about this aspect is that Saturn also comes into the mix today making semi-sextiles to both Merucry and Pluto. So this day in particular with also have the flavor or Saturn mixed in with this aspect. The Pluto Mercury sextile is someone that gets things done and doesn’t waste time doing whatever it is their focus is on. You might notice yourself being driven during this time to accomplish the little tasks and move on to the next quickly. With Saturn in the semi-sextile to both these planets, especially today, you will want to get down to business and realize that you can accomplish a lot in doing so. The trouble is that you might feel a bit quarrelsome or overworked. If you do, remember that you need to care for your body, mind and spirit more than anything you do for work! I hear my Saturn people saying – why??? Because without the body you will not be able to accomplish anything!
The next big aspect of the week is on Saturday morning when Venus in Sagittarius comes to a trine with Uranus in Aries at 2:23 AM. This aspect will be felt a few days on each side of the peak of this aspect. This is a really good time to enjoy what is around you. The surroundings and people and things that you love are a little bit electrified under this transit. It feels fun and exciting and it might even be a nice time to do something sweet and surprising for your loved ones. The fiery nature of this transit makes us feel energetic and willing to do something fun, so enjoy!
On Monday we have the sun in Scorpio making a sextile with Pluto in Capricorn, which peaks at 3:25 AM. This aspect lasts about a day on each side of the peak. This aspect brings about a desire for creative changes. The sun illuminated the deeper secrets and things that we might have hidden in our consciousness, but not in a negative way, it happens in a “I am going to do something about this _____ (fill in the blank). So if you have been thinking about doing some things such as changing deep ingrained habits of yourself, this would be a great time to do so!
