The moment we take our first breath
The MOMENT we take our first breath determines our birth chart. “The birth chart is a blueprint of the seed image of the soul, an archetypal map of the psyche” (Michael McLay, M.A.). In honor of the current Virgo ♍ Moon, I want to mention that the EXACT time is important for calculating a correct chart (an aspect of the Virgo archetype is the value of precision in order to be of better service).
If you are uncertain about your own birth time, check your birth certificate - it might be on there! Otherwise rectification is possible. Sometimes complicated or challenging, but nonetheless possible!
Sun in Sagittarius, Jupiter direct
With the Sun in Jupiters ♃ sign of Sagittarius ♐, and Jupiter being direct now, this large planet, representing faith, abundance and expansion, may be bringing something wonderful to you, or it may be too much of something, even if its a good thing (depends on where Jupiter is traveling through your chart). It can be necessary to practice having good boundaries or to set limits with Jupiter energy.
Mercury and Mars conjunct
For the last few days, Mercury and Mars have been traveling very close together in Sagittarius. This combination can inspire us to speak our truth boldly and assertively, which is important and freeing. But at the same time, be aware of the possibility of being too blunt, harsh, or reactive!
“Astrological analysis of any kind reveals potential, what could exist if backed by will and intention. A horoscope, i.e., natal or other chart, is a map of various possibilities and likelihoods latent within any individual or event that are triggered by assorted pressures and actions generated both from within and without. At every stage, every fork in the road, there is choice involved.” ~Stephen M. Smith
Moon in Cancer
The Moon is in cozy Cancer, the sign of home and hearth, through Thanksgiving day. A perfect time to be warm and secure, cooking and eating with family and close friends. A nurturing and nourishing Moon for this holiday of gratitude.
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
We also enter Mercurys ☿ shadow today, which precedes its retrograde cycle 12/10-12/30. Ground covered from now until the end of December, in Mercurys domain of communication and day-to-day business, may need to be reviewed or revised at some point in the future. So its a good idea to begin giving extra attention to being ultra clear and minding the details.
Sun enters Sagittarius
Today the Sun completes its cycle through the deep and emotionally intense waters of Scorpio ♏ and moves into optimistic, fiery, and horizon broadening Sagittarius ♐.
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.
Carl Jung in a letter to Sigmund Freud
“My evenings are taken up very largely with astrology. I make horoscopic calculations in order to find a clue to the core of psychological truth. Some remarkable things have turned up which will certainly appear incredible to you.” ~Carl Jung in a letter to Sigmund Freud, June 12, 1911
