November 13: Fanning the Proper Flames
The moon is square Saturn at 3:32 a.m., and moon void of course begins
The moon enters Scorpio at 8:19 a.m., and moon void of course ends
In the late-night hours, the Libra moon clashes with Saturn in Capricorn, creating feelings of disconnection from our loved ones. This influence amplifies desires for attention and validation, and we subsequently feel shunned upon failing to receive praise. Misinterpreting others’ reserve as an intentional slight (and not the byproduct of the current climate), we might overcompensate by inappropriately inserting ourselves into situations, which only exacerbates a sense of loneliness.
In all likelihood, the problem is not you, it is that everyone is too concerned with their own affairs to bother with socializing. This transit will come and go in the nighttime hours, but it would be wise not to enter into dialogues at this time that require even tempers and objectivity.
In the morning, the moon enters Scorpio, ending its void of course and heightening our powers of intuition. Although we are better equipped for intimate discussions, the Scorpio moon also makes us desirous of privacy. We may be inclined to bottle up our feelings to guard our hearts.
Juno is trine Neptune retrograde at 8:41 a.m.
The morning’s trine between asteroid Juno in Scorpio and Neptune in Pisces infuses relationships with compassion, intensity, and romance. Idealism is seductive, but this transit has a purpose that transcends pleasure. We want our relationships to mean something at this time, and we have high expectations for those we are intimately involved in—perhaps unreasonably high. We may enter into discussions with partners or lovers about our dreams for the future. This can be exciting for those who have done their self-work and are on the same page, as it allows individuals to reveal themselves to each other in the spirit of trust and optimism.
However, it is possible to become aware during this transit that others’ ideals don’t align with our own. Avoid glossing over these issues, as agreeing to something now to preserve the beauty of the moment will make for problems later. If each party brings their authentic intentions to the table, both individuals are afforded a chance to live their dreams without running from their own truth.
Vesta is trine Uranus retrograde at 12:47 p.m.
After noon, asteroid Vesta in Virgo is trine Uranus retrograde in Taurus, creating an easy flow between our passions and our higher ideals. We are now interested in being of service through innovative means, and are generally more aware of how our bodies act as the physical vessel to see the visions of our imagination made manifest in the world. Everything that exists began as a mental image, an idea. Take a moment to honor the sacredness of how your mind and body facilitate connection to your environment, as we often take this for granted.
Mars stations direct at 4:36 p.m.
Mars stations direct in Aries in the late afternoon. The warrior planet has been retrograde since September 9, depleting our energy, halting project momentum, and creating interpersonal, sexual, and work frustrations. Yet during this time, we have also been able to re-commit to our energetic center, finding ways to work smarter rather than harder.
With Mars in direct motion, we are now cleared to reboot projects that became stalled over the past two months. Enthusiasm may not be immediately recovered, but with steady attention acting to fan the spark of our passion, our flame will steadily rekindle from this point forward, as we pursue that which gives our lives purpose and meaning.
