Void-of-Course Moon



The Moon makes a complete cycle through the twelve signs every 28.5 days and spends approximately 2.5 days in each sign. Every few days there is something called a Void-of-Course Moon that happens (today we have one from 4:56pm-8:14pm EST). A Void Moon lasts anywhere from a few minutes to several hours. It is a great time to go inward or do routine things, as opposed to initiating new projects or meeting new people.


Excellent article about the Void-of-Course Moon

Mercury’s shadow



We also enter Mercury’s ☿ shadow today, which precedes its retrograde cycle 12/10-12/30. Ground covered from now until the end of December, in Mercury’s domain of communication and day-to-day business, may need to be reviewed or revised at some point in the future. So it’s a good idea to begin giving extra attention to being ultra clear and minding the details.

Full Moon



Full Moon at 12:27pm EST in 29 Taurus ♉. During the Full Moon, often something comes to light, comes to a head, or comes to fruition... The earthy sign of Taurus rules being instead of doing, enjoying nature, and the experience of your fives senses fully.

Jupiter and Venus direct



Jupiter, the planet of opportunity, and Venus, the goddess of love (the two “benefics”), turn direct on the same day! Friends of mine just reported that one of their chickens, after months of growth, finally laid a first egg today! A perfect symbol of being attuned with the energies that be! How are you experiencing this shift forward (after the deep inward time of reflection during the retrograde period)?

Venus retrograde



Venus has slowed and is about to turn direct tomorrow (Nov 18) after 6 weeks of being retrograde. Venus retrograde is a time for reevaluating and revisiting issues from the past — in terms of love, finances, and creativity. It is a perfect moment to be still within your process, to be compassionate with yourself and others, and to enjoy this last bit of time for reflection...
