Astrology During Sagittarius

    The Sun enters the sign of Sagittarius on November 21st at 8:06 p.m., Mountain Time. Sagittarius is a fire sign and is associated with the big guy, Jupiter. Sag is the only sign that has a nickname, which makes sense because of the sense of humor of this sign. I call Sag the Stand Up Comedian. This sign loves to travel and explore higher realms of consciousness. A Sagittarius is typically well-educated and also quite opinionated. It is a fire sign and you can tell by the strong beliefs of this sign.

    We’ll experience the last Mercury retrograde of the year from December 3rd – 22nd. Not only is the Sun in Sagittarius, but Mercury will also retrograde in Sagittarius too. Mercury retrograde is the best time to reorganize and regroup your life. Go through your things and do a slight Winter Housecleaning. Also, if you can, do all your holiday shopping early. Everything gets a bit wild during Mercury retrograde. It will feel good to have everything finished early this year.

    Thanksgiving will be on November 23rd this year and the Moon will be in Aquarius for this holiday. Aquarius likes new things, so see if you can update some of your usual traditions and make them more current. Try some new recipes, without throwing out people’s favorite. Maybe do new table decorations to spruce things up a bit.

    The big astrological event happening this month is the planet Saturn moving into the sign of Capricorn on December 19th. Saturn has an orbit of 29 years and therefore stays in each sign for about 2 ½ years. So Saturn is only in Capricorn once every 29 years and now is the time. This will be pretty powerful for Saturn because Capricorn is the sign associated with that planet. They have the same personality, so it’s almost like having two Saturns. The slowest planet of all, Pluto, is also in the sign of Capricorn now. Saturn will be moving closer and will join Pluto in 2020, which is an important pairing of planets. In fact, it’s so important, that I’m writing an entire article on it for this newsletter.

    As far as for the visible planets, we’re in for a treat this month. The evening sky planetary viewing isn’t very exciting now. The only planet visible in the evening is dim Saturn, which isn’t very easy to spot. But the morning sky is sizzling with planets! Brilliant Venus and reddish Mars have been in the eastern predawn sky for a while. Now, drum roll please, Jupiter is joining them both. Jupiter is almost as bright as Venus, so we have a spectacular lineup of planets just before sunrise each morning. Go out about 45 minutes before the sunrise and look east. You can’t miss them. Then go back and go to bed. Sometimes I dream about the planets after seeing them in the early morning. Seeing the planets always connect me more closely with the universe, always.

    Have fabulous Holidays! See you in Capricorn or the Winter Solstice!


    Astrology During Scorpio

    The Sun enters the sign of Scorpio on October 22nd at 10:28 p.m., Mountain Time. Scorpio is a water sign and is associated with the planet of intensity, Pluto. Scorpio is the most misunderstood sign of the Zodiac and yes, Scorpios do have something to do with that, because they like their privacy. Many are fairly quiet and are not the best communicators. They like mysteries, puzzles and secrets. It’s not surprising that Scorpio is associated with private investigators as well as spies. Don’t try to pry out any information, because you won’t succeed and just make your Scorpio quieter.

    This is quite a calm month, astrologically. The Great American Eclipse is done and we won’t have another Eclipse until February 2018. It is interesting to note that there will be three Solar Eclipses that year and all of them are Partial Eclipses. So no big travel or parties for Solar Eclipses for a while. We will have two Total Lunar Eclipses; one in January and one in July of 2018. We won’t have a Mercury Retrograde until December 2017. I am welcoming a bit of calm after all the recent excitement and turmoil in the world.

    The biggest astrology now is about Jupiter. On October 10th, Jupiter entered the sign of Scorpio and will remain there until November 8, 2018. Since Jupiter has a 12-year orbit, it spends approximately one year transiting through one sign. So, this is our Jupiter in Scorpio year. Jupiter represents abundance and Scorpio is all about high finance. This is the time for us all to look at our finances and get as educated and empowered as we can during this year. This could be your year to start a new business or revamp your current one. Any of those who are interested in philanthropy or working with a charity . . . this is your year.

    Looking at the visible planets this month, the viewing has switched from the evening sky to the predawn sky. Mars, Venus and now Jupiter, are all in the sky just before sunrise. Jupiter’s first rising in the evening sky will be November 9th. For an early-morning treat, we’ll see Jupiter getting very close to Venus in mid-November. The Moon will join Mars, Venus and Jupiter from November 14th – 16th. Yes, it will be worth setting an alarm for this grouping.

    Enjoy your autumn and I’ll see you again in Sagittarius!
