November 8: Personal Power

Sun is conjunct Juno at 12:42 a.m.


The Scorpio sun is conjunct the asteroid Juno shortly after midnight, highlighting commitments and power dynamics. During this transit, our ego drives support from Scorpionic objectives of interrogation and inquiry. We are resolved to get to the bottom of things, and because this conjunction occurs in the middle of the night, the dreamscape can be excavated for clues, making our unconscious compulsions conscious and revealing the psyche to ourselves. At this time, we own our power by trusting the intersection of instinct and intuition. Inevitably, when we are self-possessed, we become less inclined to seek ownership of others or assert our will inappropriately.



The moon is trine Mars retrograde at 3:39 a.m.


Before dawn, the Leo moon falls into an easy trine with Mars retrograde in Aries. This transit makes our dreams dynamic and exciting, and light sleepers could see themselves awakened in a late-night burst of enthusiasm. During its retrograde movement, Mars has stalled certain projects in an effort to help us understand how we can use our energy more efficiently. We, however, may be misinterpreting this gift as a curse. The Leo moon helps to provide us with confidence, and the perspective to recognize that our goals are not done-for, only deferred.



The moon is square the sun at 5:46 a.m.


At daybreak, the arrival of the last quarter moon affords us the distance necessary to review intentions formed during October 16’s Libra new moon. As the moon begins its final march towards new-ness, we meet the lunar phase of culmination, finalization, and completion. The Leo moon offers artistic nourishment, and the Scorpio sun suggests we keep a critical eye on the arc of our progress.


Above all now, we are interested in how to live in our truth. How might we approach each moment energetically aligned, emotionally inspired, and consciously present? The rest of the day’s activities are catalyzed by this transit, providing myriad opportunities to lean deeper into the exploration, research, and planning of that which gives you joy and imbues your life with meaning.
