SAT NOV 22 The astro-psychic shift from yesterday to today is enormous. Not only is the Moon switching its allegiance from being void in fixed-water Scorpio to entering mutable-fire Sagittarius (4:20AM), but the Sun is also morphing from the end of Scorpio to the start of Sagittarius (1:39AM). This leads humanity to the New Moon (4:33AM) – energizing 1 degree of Sagittarius. To have both the monthly lunar change from Scorpio to Sagittarius to happen nearly simultaneously with the annual solar change between the same two signs is highly unusual. Nevertheless, once the New Moon clocks in, put your best foot forward on the road to success in your main areas of expertise. Every New Moon can propel you ahead over a nearly 30-day time-span. Mercury parallel Saturn (9:53AM) is a harbinger of their conjunction in the zodiac on November 25. Utilize this Mercury-Saturn rapport to handle business matters with aplomb. The double emphasis on Sagittarius – by the two lights – gives a tremendous boost for fun, games, sports, and focusing attention on pursuing long-term educational goals. Literary and publishing projects top the charts. The monthly Moon-Venus and Moon-Ceres unions – at 6:18PM and 11:31PM, respectively – serve to amplify romantic bonds, artistic ventures, and all-around productivity. However, one monkey wrench tossed into the proceedings comes in between these two lunar conjunctions as Mercury squares Jupiter (8:44PM). Pushing personal agendas, too far and too fast, without rhyme or reason, can backfire. Gear up for Chiron’s shift from retrograde to direct motion in Pisces tomorrow.
SUN NOV 23 Easy does it! While Saturday brought with it primarily a bounty of good celestial vibrations, last night’s Mercury-Jupiter square casts some shadowy echoes – particularly regarding communications and travel plans – on to this morning’s field of play. You can still count on buoyant and effervescent Sagittarius Moon to keep you floating along in a happy-go-lucky mood. In addition, lunar trines to Uranus in Aries (3:03AM) and Jupiter in Leo (7:17PM) offer human souls a full-day’s version of a revelatory grand triangle in the three fire signs. Often known as a grand trine, this geometric formation of the Moon, Uranus, and Jupiter can open your mind to high-level vistas of the unseen universe. Tune into advanced studies across the board. The main cosmic headline concerns Chiron shifting from reverse to direct motion at 14 degrees of Pisces (3:46PM). Although our scientific calculations give a precise minute for the turnaround, Chiron archetypes are accentuated throughout the day. Some of the major Chiron themes include keys opening doors to higher consciousness, synchronicity, the wounded-healer, holistic healing and alternative medicine, the twilight zone, shamans, mavericks and mentors, mantras, mandalas, sacred dance, oracles, feelings of déjà vu and mental telepathy, ESP, bridge-building between different dimensions of consciousness, UFOs and ETs. [Chiron will remain in forward motion until June 24, 2015 when it will go retrograde again at 22 degrees of Pisces.] Note that today’s Moon-Jupiter trine (7:17PM) also begins a 13+ hour void lunar uncertainty zone that lasts until 8:33AM tomorrow. Put overnight decision-making on the back burner.
MON NOV 24 Issues concerning safety and security, home and hearth, insurance and investments, sisters and sisterhood gatherings may arrive early – courtesy of the monthly Moon-Vesta union in Sagittarius (12:12AM). However, handle any of these matters with sensitivity since the Moon is void-of-course until the monthly lunar transfer of power to earthy, hard-driving Capricorn (8:33AM). It is wise and practical to focus renewed attention on climbing the ladder to the executive penthouse. Zero in on professional aims with a vengeance. Helping you tune into spiritual willpower and a heightened sense of mental concentration is a Sun-Pluto parallel (2:35PM). However, this solar connection to the planet ruling the underworld of deep-seated feelings, fears, and phobias can sometimes trigger very profound emotional catharses and mental transformations. Strive for tranquility since only 2+ hours later, Mars in Capricorn makes an off-kilter, 150-degree link to Jupiter in Leo (4:56PM). It is easy to lose your moorings during an altercation like this between the traditional red planet of war and the ancient King of the Gods. Adjust your thinking and attitudes – in the direction of empathy and kindness – in order to avoid unnecessary ego battles with temperamental individuals. Be the Rock of Gibraltar to loved ones on the ropes.
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.

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.
