First half of December 2019 and Full Moon in Gemini
Jupiter is at it’s final degree, 29 degrees of Sagittarius on 2nd Dec leaving gifts and good luck! Sagittarius be on the lookout! Jupiter ingresses to Capricorn on 3rd Dec where it will stay for one year along with Pluto and Saturn. Mars trine north nodes of the Moon says: Action time for initiating our destiny path is at hand. Pay attention to who comes in and leaves our life. The Full Moon in Gemini on 11th Dec 2019 is at 19 Gemini 51 minutes on 9:12 p.m. PST. We will have a Venus retrograde in May 2020 close to this degree point, Venus also occulted the Sun back in June 2012 in Gemini too- they’re all connected. Cast your mind back. The Sun is in Sagittarius pouring optimism and generosity into all we do. Venus sits in between Saturn and Pluto forming a tight conjunction. A time of transforming structures around our love life, money and value system. Mars trine a now direct Neptune shouts out: dreams can come true, just believe. Great time to enjoy the arts, music and to dream. Mercury is in Sagittarius from the 10th Dec till end of the month increasing our desire for seeking out the truth. It then joins Pluto and Saturn in Capricorn at the end of the month. Jupiter now in Capricorn increases our awareness around tradition, status, the law, all our structures. Jupiter trines Uranus positively encourage us to respect human rights and humanitarianism. Jupiter squares Chiron has us seeking a higher meaning- a teacher may appear at this time.
November 2019 and New Moon in Sagittarius end of November
Mercury stations direct on 20th November & we see miscommunications slowly start clearing up – but we are not completely out of the Mercury shadow until 8th December. Mars goes into Scorpio the same day asking for “action”- this could even be an action like retribution & revenge. Take care to take the high road. A beautiful aspect of Venus conjunct Jupiter over the weekend of 23/24th November showers us with potential opportunities for love and money- a very optimistic, positive weekend- enjoy! Mars is also opposite Uranus so unexpected action or happenings could bring love &/or money your way. The New Moon is at 4 Sagittarius 2 minutes on 26th November at 7:04 a.m. PST. Influencing this is Neptune going direct the next day 15 Pisces 55 minutes, 27th November @ 4:33a.m. PST. Some strong aspects at this New Moon are: the Moon & Sun quincunx Uranus suggesting that there may be some rain on our positive optimistic parade! Venus square Chiron- relationship healing can happen but it may be a little uncomfortable. Mars is opposite Uranus and trine North Nodes of the Moon of destiny. November ends on 30th November has Mercury now direct in Scorpio sextile Saturn in Capricorn- we now start getting the okay to put down those new structures and move forward with our new life- one step at a time.
Night sky: Venus in the night sky is very low in the south west sky. Venus & Jupiter conjunct on 24th November look to the southwest sky. In the morning sky Mercury appears in latter half of November along with Mars more faintly sitting above Mercury.

November 2019 Up to Full Moon in Taurus 12 Nov 2019
November opens with Mercury retrograde in Scorpio conjunct Venus is it getting hot in here? Some intense conversations around love- may they all be pleasant! November 11th has Mercury retrograde in Scorpio conjuncts the Sun in Scorpio, these are deep transformative conversations where you work to get your view across. It can also mean some heated conversations, but it may also have things uncovered and brought to light. The Full Moon on 12th Nov 2019 is at 5:35 a.m. PST at 19 Taurus 52 minutes- this puts the Sun in Scorpio. The positive side of this is engage in the senses; a massage, enjoying good food, music and art. The negative is fearing changes leading to potentially over-indulging! Some strong aspects include Taurus Moon trine Pluto, Sun sextile Pluto, Mercury sextile Neptune and Mars sextile Jupiter and an exact Saturn sextile Neptune. Pluto is very much involved in this Full Moon, but it is exerting powerful, positive transformational effects deep inside us. There may be some mixed messages with the Mercury retrograde still in full operation.

Aries: (apologies I unintentionally left you off my video! Sorry)- For Aries Ascendant or rising this is your 2nd house of earned income, beauty and your values. Perhaps you’ll initiate a meditation practice with your own items that are valuable and important to you, some nice incense too? You may have an ending of a source of income and decide to use savings or investments or…apply for a loan and you get an approval perhaps for a house or beautiful piece of art.

Full Moon Aries and New Moon Scorpio
Pluto going stationary direct early in October 2019 sets the stage for us taking back our power, power plays, powerful feelings, powerful people, and powerful events.
The Full Moon in Aries has the Sun and Moon square Pluto- not the day to temp fate when it comes to the law or powerful people that can possibly make your life difficult. For some it may be that their wrong doings are uncovered, and consequences ensue. Others will be fighting for their rights. Collectively there may be a powerful signal from the stock market around or on this day- especially with Venus in Scorpio opposing Uranus, planet of surprises. The New Moon in Scorpio at 4 degrees Scorpio 25 minutes occurs on the 27th of October just before the start of the Mercury retrograde. Mercury conjunct Venus and Pallas Athena- fighting a fair fight for justice for all. More news about our global economy. All Scorpio’s especially rising may have significant power and powerful issues come up at the New Moon that take on a whole different hue at the Scorpio retrograde. Scorpio can wear many masks…expect some of those to come off during the retrograde!! Truth is a big outcome for this Mercury retrograde and also, still waters run deep. Don’t forget to breathe and maybe take 10 breaths before blurting truths out- try to be diplomatic. But, do not back down from truth telling- this is a very powerful time for that- true deep changes can occur that are positive.
Mercury retrograde in Scorpio occurs on 31st of Oct 2019 – Halloween in the USA @ 27 degrees Scorpio. The Shadow period is from the 12th of October to the 8th of December 2019 and embraces both a New Moon in Scorpio and Full Moon in Taurus. Scorpio energies are deep, mysterious – we want to get to the bottom of something- sex, death, secrets or money can all come up for review. Scientific, psychological items may also be emphasized with the idea of ‘solving a mystery’. Pallas Athena conjuncts Mercury and Venus along with the Moon and Jupiter and Ceres all in Sagittarius suggesting that there may be a very hopeful, optimistic but…truthful outcome where our earth and sexual violence are brought up once again for review but with a positive outcome. Venus went retrograde in Scorpio last year on the 5th of Oct to the 15th of November 2018- in the news we had Judge Kavanagh’s confirmation come up for question regarding past alleged sexual misconduct, two Nobel Peace prize winners fighting against sexual violence and Prince Harry and Duchess Megan announcing a pregnancy. We’ll be revisiting all this with the Mercury retrograde in Scorpio- discussing and debating! Both Mars (god of war and courage) along with Pluto (power and transformation). The evening sky has Venus sitting in the Southwest from 8 pm onwards.

The 2nd half of September 2019 leads with Saturn stationing to go direct at 13 degrees Capricorn on 18 September @ 1:46a.m. PDT. Saturn conjuncts and is separating from the karmic South Nodes of the Moon (and opposes the North Nodes of destiny). Finally, you can move forward, restrictions and obligations start to go- especially when you realize they weren’t yours to begin with! Pluto went retrograde in 2014 at the 13 degree of Capricorn point starting a transformational process in one of your Astro Houses (area of your life). Look at your chart to see where 13 degrees falls – it is here where finally after all those lessons and restrictions become so much lighter. A Full Moon Eclipse also happens at 13 degrees of Capricorn on 5 July 2020 marking a time of culmination in the specific area (house) in your chart. The Autumn Equinox occurs on 23 September giving us equal day and night. Keeping the peace, balance, fairness and beauty are on the agenda. Mercury travels with Venus for the rest of Sept and first week of October, in Libra spreading diplomacy, harmonious thoughts and speech; maybe some love talk! The New Moon is in Libra at 5 degrees at 11:27 am PDT and quincunx Uranus asking us to make some unexpected adjustment. Lovely harmonious aspects surround this New Moon providing support and inspiration. Cast aside the doubts and second guessing yourself- believe, especially believe in You! Maybe some lovely Autumnal get togethers with friends would be fun. Here are some of the calming sound videos I mentioned:
