November 11: Fits and Starts

The moon is trine Saturn at 2:58 a.m., and moon void of course begins


In the early morning hours, the Virgo moon forms a trine with Saturn in Capricorn, awakening us to our role as a link in a great chain of inherited traditions. We may receive guidance from elders or ancestors in our dreams. Following this connection, the moon’s void of course begins, making it unwise to begin important projects or enter into critical negotiations, although we can rely on common sense and practical intuition to steer us in the proper directions.



The moon enters Libra at 8:09 a.m., and moon void of course ends


In the morning, the moon ends its void of course, entering the sign of Libra, territory where aesthetic considerations of beauty, harmony, and artistic symmetry are soothing to the soul. We are more sensitive to the feelings of others during this time, and our moods are dependent on the company we keep. Pleasant socializing might carry us through the day, while arguments could serve to throw us entirely off-balance. We might find it challenging to make decisions or take risks, as we are presently inclined to see the pros and cons of each choice laid before us in equal measure.



The moon is opposite Chiron retrograde in Aries at 5:03 p.m.


By the evening arrives, the Libra moon stands at odds with Chiron retrograde in Aries, intensifying personal projections of inadequacy, insufficiency, or failure. The worry during this influence is that we cannot “measure up” to some imaginary standard, comparing our talents and strengths with those who appear more successful, happy, or fulfilled. The Libra moon is consumed with pleasing, inclining us to follow the herd or fear decision-making. We now assume we can make ourselves more appealing by disavowing our authentic nature under the erroneous assumption that this will get us where we want to go.

During these hours, exercise discernment. It is not healthy, nor possible, to remain on the fence to avoid conflict. Nor is it wise to sacrifice our passions for uniformity. We are gifted with the ability to choose, to demonstrate courage and individualism. Taking action and making defined choices won’t cancel opportunities, rather they will align us with more appropriate resources, careers, and relationships.
