Astrology Forecast for November 29- December 5
Perspectives from the Sky report will be more brief than usual because of the holiday weekend.
As we have talked about before, 2010 will be a big year for change and transformation in the World and in our personal lives. Jupiter, Saturn, and Uranus will be in transition between mutable signs (Virgo, Pisces) and cardinal signs (Libra, Aries). Since Pluto already is in a cardinal sign (Capricorn), that means that 4 of the 5 outer planets will be in or moving into cardinal signs.
The outer planets Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto show us by their transits what change from a bigger picture is coming into our lives. The cardinal signs Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn represent the beginnings of seasons: Aries-spring; Cancer-summer; Libra-Autumn; Capricorn-winter. As such they represent new beginnings in our collective lives, and for many their personal lives also.
This transition between mutable and cardinal signs represents the kind of energetic change, except on a bigger scale, that happens on the cusp of new seasons. Weather and energies fluctuate more than usual as we go through seasonal transition.
Symbolically this combination of mutable and cardinal signs is a good metaphor for the bigger shift that is occuring between an old Pisces Age and a new Aquarian Age. Also 2010 is only 2 years away from the Mayan December 21, 2012 prediction of a New Age. So we are on the cusp of Ages, of a New Season for the world.
2010 will challenge us to let go and release old ways of thinking and living, and to let in and embrace new ways to live and think. Events will occur in the greater world and in our personal lives to prod us into making the needed changes.
There is an especially important Lunar Eclipse Grand Cross in late June that reveals an important crossroads/turning point for us all from old world to new world. Many other important aspects happen all through 2010. As those events get closer we will write about them more.
An eclipse on New year’s Eve 2019/2010 will set a tone for the coming year. Another eclipse on January 15 will shake up our world.
This week, November 29-December 5 will bring into our lives some lively aspects
The Moon is in Taurus on Sunday the 29th and Monday the 30th. Keeping a lid on feelings and emotions should be easy. Movement should be slow and methodical, practical and grounded.
Uranus changes from retrograde to Direct on Tuesday the 1st of December. Energies will be shifting from earthy body awareness to more electrical mental energies. You could start feeling this shift as early as Sunday or Monday, which would disrupt the tranquility of Moon in Taurus. Many, however, may not feel this shft until Tuesday when it does actually go direct.
As the Moon on Tuesday moves into Gemini, a mental air sign, it will combine with Uranus to give you a boost for a couple days. For some it may feel almost like caffeine.
It is time to let in new inspirations and information and ideas to help you to gain vision for your life, as the Full Moon in Sagittarius/Gemini blows in on Tuesday also. The Full Moon is at 11:30 PM on Tuesday the 1st on the west coast USA, and is at 2:30 AM Wednesday the 2nd on the East Coast.
This is a very energized Full Moon, especailly good for talking or any kind of communication. If you have felt slow or depressed lately, this combination of a lively Gemini Full Moon and Uranus going Direct will awaken your mind and spirit.
The aura of these aspects could last until Thursday or Friday. Nevertheless, the Moon will be in Cancer most of Thursday and Friday and part of Saturday, which should help many to find some comfort during the storm of mental activity.
In the greater world, this week of full Moon and Uranus direct will show a shifting of energies, a changing of direction. There may be breakdowns of old stuck energies and breakthroughs into new territory. Rebellious and revolutionary movements may pick up confidence now.
See you next week,
