November 2: Meetings of the Mind
The moon enters Gemini at 2:00 a.m., and moon void of course ends
The moon enters Gemini after midnight, ending its void of course. With many of us asleep, this transit will lend to lively dreamscapes, and we’ll awaken with more energy, motivated to tackle life’s challenges.
As the moon travels through the sign of the Twins, we are telepathically keyed into the social and intellectual landscape of our environment, but rapid shifts in perspective have the potential to leave us scattered and anxious. Be aware of the information you are absorbing today. The jittery nature of this moon will make separating fact from fiction tedious work, as all facts are contingent upon perspective, and all fictions contain a sliver of truth.
The moon is sextile Chiron retrograde at 1:32 p.m.
In the early afternoon, the moon and Chiron retrograde in Aries sextile, engendering empathy. Under this influence, the brain is an exposed nerve, and even simple interactions with others could activate painful memories, making us feel extra sensitive. Confrontations with those who stimulate the wounded parts of your psyche are providing an opportunity for you to overcome and heal old hurts. Paradoxically, it is only when we are vulnerable that we can hope to be seen and accepted for who we are.
The moon is trine Venus at 4:31 p.m.
Later in the day, the moon connects to Venus in Libra, inspiring heart-centeredness. Conflict is mitigated by compassion. We are able to discern people’s motivations and biases from different angles, and from this vantage point become able to reach across perceived divisions to call others in, instead of canceling them, to the benefit of no one. The evening hours facilitate dialogues where each party is aware of their ideological similarities rather than their differences.
