November 7: A New Story

The moon is trine Chiron retrograde at 9:40 a.m.


This morning the moon in Leo creates a pleasant trine with Chiron, presently retrograde in Aries. Chiron in Aries stimulates identity wounds, activating within us feelings of being unseen, ashamed, overlooked, or discouraged from pursuing our purpose. Meanwhile, the Leo moon facilitates creativity and emboldens our inner child to take up space. Leo resonates with the art of storytelling, and under the Leo moon, the world becomes a stage on which to re-envision past Chironic pain as a dramatic tale.


What might your life look like if you stopped ceding your agency to old wounds? The practice of self-mythologizing creates new neural pathways, and in mythologizing a happy ending or a conquered quest into your personal narrative, you can extricate yourself from thought-loops which frame you as a victim instead of a hero. Because we are all connected, the ethos of “healer, heal thyself” causes a chain reaction within your community which has a far greater influence than you realize. As you re-create your story through play, you become an example for others to follow suit and champion their own insecurities.



The moon is square Uranus retrograde at 2:49 p.m.


In the afternoon hours, the moon locks into a square with Uranus retrograde in Taurus, arousing unpredictable emotions. Surprising news or an unexpected turn of events may have us feeling excited, yet seemingly unable to direct our energy into a proper outlet. A desire to impress may now clash with instincts to rebel, and the fixed nature of both planetary placements will make it tedious to truly get projects off the ground.


We may simply be restless and bored, influencing us to act out of character, or we may have to contend with the actions of someone else who has suddenly rebelled from their traditional attitudes. This is a decent transit for independent work, low-stakes experimentation (allowing for potential errors in judgment), or trying something that you might normally be afraid to try. Instead of setting high expectations, pay attention to the inactive moments between periods of activity. What subtle currents are you responding to? Chances are you don’t desire just any change, you want specific change, so use the afternoon to consider your future. Can you imagine it? Can you form a mental picture? Begin from there.
