The New Moon @ 19 Scorpio on Nov. 11th is conjunct Mercury and trine Chiron, we can get beyond old issues, habits and emotional baggage by going deep within; cognitive therapy, regression work, or just talking things out with a good friend can be very healing. Making progress this cycle happens by freeing your soul of resentments, grudges and anger held onto to for far too long. A fresh start to deep healing for many is now. People all over the world have become increasingly sensitized and appalled at the scale of human suffering, from the wars in the Middle East, the resulting refugee crises https://youtu.be/fB0_uxOgxZM , out of control police brutality, and the massive environmental wounding to the planet. As we have become more aware of the intensity level and extreme dualism of today's various global issues, we are now prime for implementing positive socioeconomic and environmental changes on a global scale, something discussed during the United Nations' 70th anniversary festivities in September, as feelings of connection to everyone and everything become more common place.
This New Moon is part of a yod pointing to Uranus; change is the order of the day, and we are making the necessary moves to revolutionize some areas of life. A new beginning to expanding our level of consciousness, opening our heart and feeling more optimistic (Jupiter sextile the New Moon) is available if we pay attention to factual information (Virgo) and focus (Scorpio) on our goals. Making changes likely sets up further changes; staying flexible and open-minded will help if we desire to fully embrace our uniqueness and dare to be ourselves completely.
We've had an eventful Autumn in world events and now as we shift gears toward internal matters with the Scorpio energy this cycle, we can make positive changes now that we've gained new perspectives on ourselves after experiencing recent relationship issues. The North Node just moved into Virgo, and the South Node into Pisces until April 2017 shifting the focus from our relationship with self and others to healing self and others on all levels. A time of perfecting skills, focusing energies, moving away from scattered thoughts and actions, throwing off the outdated beliefs and attitudes. More mutable energy added to an already full mutable plate means more shifting, adjusting and very changeable conditions for many. A time for new places and meeting new people too. Others don't know what to do now, or what is going on exactly, but sensing a move closer to their higher self. It may be a good time to do absolutely nothing and see where the chips fall; a time of going with the mutable flow and trusting your intuition. Saturn in Sagittarius squaring this axis symbolizes the plethora of truth bombs regarding world issues further accelerates the world shake-up in politics, economics, international relations. and the environment. The Paris Climate Change Conference starts Nov. 30th under favorable astrological conditions, during this period we could see major legal actions, reforms and setting a course for a more peaceful, more equitable, cleaner world. http://www.theguardian.com/environment/2015/jun/02/everything-you-need-to-know-about-the-paris-climate-summit-and-un-talks
Venus and Mars in Libra now, where they stay until Dec 4th and Jan. 3, 2016, respectively. Here's another opportunity toward healing relationship problems that have been so prominent the past several months; here also is an urge for peace, and going after it aggressively. The Full Moon in Gemini on Nov. 25th creates a T-square with Neptune. More issues around water, oil, drugs, storms and flooding coincide with changing personal spirituality for some; more information creates greater awareness for the collective consciousness to expand further. Will we let ourselves become more aware and informed, or do we stay in denial by distracting ourselves with superficial matters or scattering our energies by staying busy?
The Geo-Political Scene shows the US Sibley chart under pressure from several aspects now. Transiting Saturn and the progressed Moon, both in the 12th, will cross the Ascendant soon, it is becoming clearer and clearer the depths of the nations self-destruction tendencies that started with the Reagan administration's policies thirty years ago that launched the birth of Neoclassical economics and the Neocon foreign policy takeover; the clock is running out on these misguided policies. Saturn square Neptune's first exact hit is on Nov.26th, an aspect we've talked about many times here will have a big impact on the US over the next two years. Saturn will oppose Uranus in 6th (police, military and workers) and later conjunct the Ascendant will bring pressure to demilitarize, and rehumanize the police, scale back overseas military operations and address income inequality, this coming from the President's administration (natal Saturn in 10th). Neptune transiting the 3rd will square Uranus, the Asc, and Dsc and may reveal more about the media oligopoly's cozy relationship with an increasingly fascist government and their role in mass propaganda http://www.strategic-culture.org/news/2013/08/30/world-waking-up-to-western-nonstop-deceptions.html. Pluto is making its last opposition to the US Sun and square Saturn, this reflects the push back by NATO allies and BRICS nations against US hegemony, the massive debt bubble and rigged stock market, and the further recognition of deceptive US policies in the Middle East and elsewhere. Russia's rapid and effective takeover of the fight against ISIS leaves many more doubting the US's intention in the region. We can expect a flood of startling new information, leaks and disclosures over the next several months on the extent of military-industrial-corporate-government mind meld, their collusion, corruption and power. It's all coming out now, just in time to have a larger impact on the 2016 Presidential Election.
“A human being is a part of the whole called by us universe, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feeling as something separated from the rest, a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.” ―Albert Einstein
