The week of the 28th of November to December 5th, 2011 is right in the middle of two eclipses. Eclipses open windows, trigger events and manifest results. We are able to clear the slates and let go of the past. Last week on November 24th the Moon was New during a Solar eclipse in truth seeking Sagittarius, this occurred 23 hours after Mercury went retrograde, also in Sagittarius. Our perceptions are shifting. Jupiter ruling the heavens now will imbue each of us with a desire for the truth. Sagittarius will influence us to expand and explore, being fearless and free is entirely possible now, if only we will see the truth.
From the 28th to the 30th the moon will be in Aquarius. This is a fast thinking genius type energy, entirely unemotional it is ruled by the vastness of air. Use this energy to detach for a moment – to see where you are getting hung up in the emotional realm. Aquarius thinks, the intellect is strong now and so is the ability to be completely unique- use this energy to get out of any boxes you’ve been stuck in. This window, between the eclipse’s gives you a very real opportunity to launch yourself in a new direction. Keep open to new ideas and flashes of inspiration bringing serendipitous revelation.
On the first of December the moon shifts to very different Pisces energy. The emotional realm takes precedence on this day. Caution should be taken to protect your energy. Energy vampires are a very real phenom. We humans are exchanging energy with each other at all times- this is natural and good when in balance, trouble occurs when there is an imbalance. A person with low or week energy will be drawn to feed off the energy of a stronger person. This often happens without any conscious awareness. Watch for people who tire you out- Check how you feel before and after you interact with various people in your life. If you are exhausted or find it difficult to listen to the stories of certain people it’s likely that you are being used for energy. Learn to shield yourself with your ability to envision imaginary armor. Picture a bubble of white light around your body- this works wonders. A mesh of purple light will prevent you from being vulnerable to this very common phenomenon as well- Use your imagination, it’s a powerful tool, more potent then you may realize.
On the first the Pisces moon is in aspect to Neptune, Jupiter, Pluto and Venus. These harmonious aspects often bring with them opportunity of one kind or another. With the Moon involved in each case we can look to our feelings for these blessings. There is potential for sublime spiritual experiences. Perhaps you feel guided and protected and especially blessed with contentment and calm. Now would be a good time to take a break from the harsh realities of the world- avoid the news and media as much as possible. Indulge in beauty of all kinds- this will feed your expanding soul.
While the dreamy Neptune energy is dissolving your boundaries Venus is fused with Pluto. Pluto is always a heavy hitter. Exposing the truth, and pushing for growth at all costs. To Pluto nothing is more important than the evolutionary journey of the Soul. Fused in a conjunction with Venus you can expect to come face-to-face with the reality of your relationships and what you value. If you are on track this process is empowering. If you are living any lies, now you will get a front row seat to the truth as it is now. We can be shocked to discover what we’ve been hiding from ourselves. Some people prefer to live in a rose colored world happily ignoring the issues as they fester- Pluto won’t have it. Eventually we all face with the facts- it strengthens us, our soul soars to the sound of truth; however unpleasant it may be it truly does free us.
The weekend shifts yet again with the Moon moving into Aries. Your energy will return, action is necessary. Find time to channel any aggression you may feel with exercise otherwise you may start selfishly lashing out, feeling impatient and frustrated by any delays. Sunday has some tricky aspects that could have you feeling at cross purposes- Perhpas you will encounter resistance to your ideas in the outer world. Maybe your recent discoveries are too much to cope with now. Stress creates the friction needed to grow- Try to think of it that way. This week is an important one in the scheme of things- capture the realizations in your journal or talk it out with trusted loved ones. Life is conspiring to grow you up, now is the time to reach into new territory – venture further.
