TUE NOV 25 During these last six days of November, the gremlins of the universe still have some shenanigans up their sleeves with which to undermine the best efforts of earthlings. With yesterday’s unsettling, 150-degree Mars-Jupiter clash still rumbling through the psychic atmosphere, you now have to contend with the intense, monthly Moon-Pluto union in Capricorn (4:56AM), the Moon parallel to Saturn (8:44AM), the annual Mercury-Saturn conjunction at 27 degrees of Scorpio (6:38PM), and Mercury forming a frictional, 45-degree tie with Pluto (8:50PM). It is the total accumulation of these potentially challenging forces that can lead to brooding, worry, and stagnation rather than accomplishing main career-oriented projects under determined, responsible Capricorn Moon. Despite the seemingly somber message coming from the cosmos via the four alignments listed above, you can still hammer out some important business and professional work through a steely disposition. You might also consider enlisting the help of Jupiter-like positive thinking to turn the tide against self-doubt and pessimism. Get set for another unusual day tomorrow when four Venusian alignments, the monthly Moon-Mars union, Mercury and Uranus at loggerheads, and a Sun-Neptune square vie for supremacy.
WED NOV 26 Out of the frying pan and into the fire! There is no rest for the weary on Spaceship Earth as you jump through more challenging hoops orchestrated by the planetary pranksters of the solar system. Now you have to deal with excess emotion and potential volatility coming from the monthly Moon-Mars union, right now in Capricorn (12:07AM). Venus is an all-day presence as this celestial body forms a subtle and yet still supportive, 30-degree liaison with Pluto (12:29AM), a union with productivity-enhancing Ceres at 13 degrees of Sagittarius (4:50AM), a flowing trine to Uranus in fire signs (4:24PM), and a possibly abrasive square to wounded-healer Chiron (9:34PM). While 2 or 3 of the Venus alignments can enhance your artistic, social, and business opportunities, you still have to contend with the unsettled nature of Capricorn Moon being void from 7:31AM to 11:24AM (when Aquarius Moon arrives on the scene), Mercury forming a dicey, 135-degree tie with radical-change agent Uranus (9:36AM), and the most confusing-chaotic aspect of the day – the Sun making one of two, annual squares to Neptune (8:20PM). It won’t be easy to move through this 24-hour time-period without a few missteps and errors of judgment. However, by knowing the specific timing and general qualities of the sky patterns, you can do your best to tweak today’s stellar configurations to your advantage. With the Sun striving to illuminate Neptunian archetypes via their 90-degree interaction, one of your jobs is to re-vitalize a daily meditation practice or the frequent use of affirmations and visualization exercises.
THU NOV 27 It may seem – periodically – that the universe is actually trying to jostle your senses, mess with your vision quest, and deny you achievements via strange accumulations of discordant sky patterns. The truth is that it really is a random potpourri of celestial alignments that sometimes tips the scales from sustaining harmony to amplifying dissonance. Most days will have a fairly balanced number of favorable and challenging aspects mixed together, and it will be up to you to make progress during the positive times and be more reserved during the difficult times. Today the mixture is easy to see as the Moon in Aquarius places a renewed emphasis on partaking in group projects, team sports, community activities, volunteer efforts, and global causes close to your heart and philosophy of life. Giving you a notable boost – artistically and socially – is Venus parallel Mars (6:47AM) while almost exactly two hours later psychic storm warnings are posted as Saturn makes a testy, provocative 45-degree link to Pluto (8:48AM). If you can recover quickly from this turn of events, then the Moon forming a supportive, 60-degree sextile to Venus (10:39AM) brings good cheer back into artistic and social affairs while a trine from Ceres to Uranus in fire signs (2:40PM) signals an opportunity to be very productive in your main fields of expertise. Mercury adds a note of buoyancy and good fortune by entering Sagittarius (6:27PM) – a goal-oriented, literary, and higher-learning cycle that lasts until December 16. Party on tonight and vanquish any dour tendencies left over from this morning’s Saturn-Pluto scuffle.
FRI NOV 28 If you are looking for a day this month to play hooky from work you would rather not accomplish, this Friday may fit the bill. The Moon in Aquarius making its monthly polarity to Jupiter in Leo (1:17AM) arrives early, and already suggests that good fortune may not be easy to attract – unless you are naturally lucky and the gods and goddesses of the higher realms often seek you out to give you celestial favors. Ceres squaring Chiron (7:41AM) and the Moon square to Saturn (9:15AM) are two more unnerving sky configurations that point more to apparent obstacles to leap over rather than smooth sailing. In addition, the Moon-Saturn clash (9:15AM) also begins a void lunar cycle in Aquarius that lasts until 2:04PM. Slow your tempo across the board during this 4+ hour limbo time-span. Finish old projects instead of initiating dynamic new enterprises. Once the Moon enters the psychic currents of the universal water sign of Pisces (2:04PM), reach out with a kindhearted approach to dear ones in trouble or on the mend. Use your words to comfort – not harm. Empathy is in; self-centeredness is out. Dance the night away as the Moon in Pisces can give you happy feet. Keep a journal by your bed to record nocturnal soul wanderings with the Moon embracing Neptune (10:18PM).

Highlights of the November 2014 Cosmic Calendar
By Mark Lerner
If you have been feeling much closer to the spiritual realms and tuning into psychic abilities more deeply during recent Novembers, there is a somewhat hidden reason. Sure, the zodiacal signs through which the Sun appears to move at this time of the year – Scorpio and Sagittarius – both have archetypes that pull humans toward in-depth research, investigative work, delving into mysteries and secrets, and exploring religious and philosophical teachings. However, since 2010, outer celestial bodies Chiron and Neptune have been making their stations – pauses in the heavens after several months of retrograde motion – and then shifting forward during this eleventh month of the year.
Back in 2010 – when Chiron and Neptune were virtually conjunct at 26 degrees of Aquarius close to Neptune’s discovery point from September 1846 – these two planetary bodies made their stations on November 5 and 7, respectively. A year later, the dates were November 9 and 10, with Chiron a little past Neptune in the zodiac. In 2012, with Neptune and Chiron both in Pisces, the dates were November 10 and 14 while last year the dates widened to a six-day gap of November 13 and 19. Now, in 2014, you want to rev up your visionary talents on November 15 (when Neptune is motionless) and become a master of synchronicity and healing old wounds (when Chiron is motionless). Note: While the dates mentioned for each November are accurate, stations of celestial bodies are often influential for several days before and after. Plus, you will have one more November – in 2015 – to be a part of the extra potency of Neptune and Chiron barely moving in the sky when they shift their directions forward a year from now on November 18 and 27.
Beyond the increased power of Chiron and Neptune during this month, the two key cosmic happenings are certainly the Full Moon of Thursday November 6 and the New Moon of Saturday November 22. The Full Moon is always a potential carrier of divine illumination for humanity as the two lights are on opposite sides of the Earth. This month the Sun and Moon activate 15 degrees of Scorpio and Taurus which the eminent astrologer Dane Rudhyar named as two of four Gates of the Avatar (when he wrote about their special nature many decades ago). To him, the power points of each season occur midway through their three-month duration, and the power point for this season occurs on November 6. Therefore, on this date almost every year, the Sun is radiating its essence at one of these extra-strong and spiritually-active Gates of the Avatar, but during this November the Moon is in polarity to the Sun and thus energizing the Taurus point of the zodiac associated with the same solar phenomenon that happens on May 5. All of this adds up to a more electrifying and psychically awakening Full Moon experience.
Meanwhile, early on Saturday November 22, there is a New Moon at the beginning of Sagittarius as the Sun enters this ninth sign of the zodiac only about three hours before both lights merge their influence. Any New Moon is a signal to earthlings to look ahead and build momentum for dynamic plans and enterprises. However, when the Sun has just arrived at the zodiacal sign and the Moon joins forces with the solar orb almost immediately thereafter, you have a much stronger-than-usual opportunity to make the entire 30-day journey of the Sun in that sign a truly profound and successful experience.
As November fades into the history books, our distant friends Neptune and Chiron will be reawakened again in all of our hearts and minds as the Moon unites with Neptune on November 28 and Chiron on November 29 while the last main sky configuration of the month is a square of 90-degrees between the ancient Messenger of the Gods planet Mercury and far-out, dreamy and imaginative Neptune. No matter what kinds of metaphorical cards – tarot, fortune telling or the regular deck of 52 and a joker – you are dealing with in your life as this month ends, you have the capacity to morph into a more divinely-aligned human soul as December begins.
