November 22: Slow Down

Mercury is inconjunct Mars at 6:00 a.m.


In the dawn hours, Mercury in Scorpio forms an inconjunct aspect with Mars in Aries, creating a disconnect between intellectual objectives and physical energy. This transit stimulates confusion, obscuring a piece of the puzzle necessary for the accomplishment of your goals. Mercury in Scorpio prefers talking to the right people, doing a little investigative back work, but Martian impulses are dominant here, as both planets are in territory traditionally ruled by the warrior planet, making us brash, impatient, and eager to “win.”


Mars really just wants us to get moving and fly solo, and so this inconjunct becomes a situation of “not needing anyone’s help,” when deep down, you know you are missing some critical evidence or expert advice. And we may actually be content with the bare minimum now, tired of putting matters off, but there is a good chance you are cheating yourself out of some experience that would benefit from a less aggressive approach. You may need to circle back and redo your work later.



The moon is sextile Uranus retrograde at 11:11 a.m.


Before noon, the Pisces moon creates a cozy sextile with Uranus in Taurus, provoking eureka! moments. Contrary to classical thought, we often get our best ideas by zoning out and slowing down the mental hamster wheel. Uranus in Taurus engages our higher mind, asking how we can be of service to humanity and the planet by reimagining the way we assign value to others and recognize our own self-worth.  


As the Pisces moon activates the sextile, we seamlessly become aware of specific ways to utilize intuition, compassion, and creativity, to create positive changes in our environment. Great plans start with a vision. Today can be used to transcend your ordinary perspective.
