THANKSGIVING Full Beaver/Frosty Moon –
Saturn Square Neptune
Wednesday Nov 25, 2:44 PM Pacific, at 3 Gemini 20
Danish Hans Christian Andersen’s tale, The Snow Queen. It was a story with a moral, published on 21 December 1844. The Queen swoops Kai away across the winter night sky…. It is the basis for Disney’s animated musical fantasy film Frozen.
The day before THANKSGIVING! It is with immense gratitude that we all share this Full Moon. It kicks off a new Lunar cycle, leads us into the Holy days of Winter. Look all around you, as far as you can see, to expand your vision, see your part in sacred engagements.
Sun, Saturn, Mercury/Moon TSquare Neptune! They are in Mutable signs, Gemini opposite Sagittarius, square Neptune in its own sign Pisces. You don’t get much more mutable than Neptune in PIsces. Mutable is whimsical, changes without provocation. It is its nature to morph, mingle, merge, move on. It is gifted to see what can change and how that can be done. You may catch a glimpse only for what you saw never to be seen again, already in a different form. If you are in the transcendance business that can be profound. If you are doing research, there may be astonishing results. Just follow the lead. If you love what’s new and fresh, take a chance, but don’t expect things to stay the same! You have to keep up or let go, maybe meet again, likely not. But it certainly will be entertaining and life changing!
TSquares can act as senders through the planet at the T point, or the T point can act as a scanner/receive – usually both, a living two way station! It looks for, senses, the best way to go, is a Seeker. It searches possibilities, extends itself into new connections. It promotes the ideas of its wingmen, the two planets of the opposition supporting it. It listens carefully for the perfect timing with the right people. Neptune is perfect to catch the Moonbeams, ride the Sunbeams, sense every nuance connecting them.
Full Moons act as a the widest portal of male/female, Mother Moon, Father Sun. Moon in Gemini gathers her web of information as a gesture of love, magically divining the threads to follow, making a cloak of knowledge that spans the heavens. She breathes for us, sacred ideas come to life from the synthesis of galaxies!
Father Sun in Sagittarius drives the Chariot of Fire on point, to a greater Purpose than one alone can see. The Collective reaches a tipping point, we move forward, always upward, every time we speak up, every time the teacher teaches. The Sagittarian Journey is much more than we ever realized. Together we Light the Way. This Full Sag Moon, the Sun is conjunct Saturn, the Builder. The road will be paved with Gold. Get down on your knees. Get close to the Earth. You will know where to place every brick. Many will be able to follow safely. Saturn wants to make it a real possibility, not just a fancy idea that sounds good.
Mercury has just passed Saturn and squared Neptune, took Saturn’s tests, clarified Neptune’s Mission. It has separated from illusion, gained a more compassionate insight, let go of denial. Mercury is practically a convert now, filled with opinions, Spirit, so ready to tell the story, get the Word out on what it is going to take to get the job done!
Mars has just activated Neptune the T point, from Libra. Mars is utterly spontaneous, instantly reactive/proactive as needed. It is in Libra, a sign that breathes which way the wind is blowing, aware of nuances in relationships. Neptune in Pisces lives in the ethers, the dreamtime, a true psychic. All three are sensitives in their own way. They are tuned into many dimensions, can bring people and factors together, to birth a new alliance capable of fulfilling the greater prophecy. If you don’t know what your part is, just be there, it will soon come.
Mars also sextiles Sun, Saturn and Mercury. Mars will bring all the right people into play! If it doesn’t know who yet, they will go find them! Immediately, Moon trines Mars 10:23 PM Pacific! Moon in Gemini is plenty curious, sometimes downright snoopy, so she will love finding out who Mars’ friends are. She can chat just about as fast as Mars can get there! Moon is seductively motherly; Mars in Libra dances so fast you don’t realize what happened, the Bandit has struck and run! They could be plenty mischievous and get away with it! Guard your small valuables!
Sun will make the sextile Mars through Dec 6, plenty of vitality! Select the gym, get the exercise equipment! Inspiration will abound! Take a class, get tutored. It will work best to be independent and partner up! Traveling together, co teaching, racing and fast sports competition. Skiing, skating. Across the desert sands. Just assure yourself some time each day to do as you want when you want. Another good Sag sport is reading! They love to learn, and Mars in Libra enjoys the culture. Study up on where you are going.
Mars has been super productive sextile Saturn. However, Libra is not known for heavy physical labor, and Saturn has to corral playful and wandering Sagittarius, so production may need to be redefined to fit this combo. Teaching your passion is productive. Sports can be productive, as can winning the bet! Building a dance studio, importing exotic finery, attractive exercise gear/clothing, cultural anthropology museum or art gallery would be productive.
Mercury sextiled Mars at 8:32 AM Pacific. Mercury is related to the Moon’s sign Gemini, much to talk about. Mercury was quite excited by the rendezvous with Mars and his partner, or by Mars’ independence, another independent on the path. Yet, Mars in Libra is looking for a mate, and Sagittarius is always on the lookout for students. This time Mercury is seeing the forthrightness of Mars polished by Libra sophistication. There is a more suave, debonair demeanor that is more attractive, a cut above a diamond in the rough.
Venus’ recent opposite encounter with a stranger from a wild zone, Uranus in Mars’ sign Aries, also brings in that out of the box quality that makes mere polish and politics wonder if they are on the right course. Will there be an overthrow sometime soon? Internet certainly is moving things quickly. Accountability is upon us. Awareness is extending. Fewer secrets. Awakening. Venus sees opportunities to do the right thing, and with her attractiveness and connections has a good chance of bringing it off!
This Full Moon core aspect is Saturn square Neptune!
This aspect has already been with us for an extended period. We have been absorbing it. Its first exact contact is ThanksGiving Day, Nov 26, the day after the Full Moon! There will be two more in 2016. See more.
Saturn in Sagittarius can look you square in the eye, tough as nails, and not spare you from it’s Truth. Or it can be scared to tell you what might rob you of your optimism. Or they may lack the courage of their convictions. They can be scared of sports and speed or be superb on-the-mark medalists! They may be obsessed planners, fanatically focused, or wilting, wandering and late, needing reigning in. They can be seemingly spiritually forsaken skeptics, or ready to build the temple for the brothers and sisters. Saturn does best when given experience. Day by day they build confidence, seeing that progress for themselves. Once they get it, they are unstoppable!
Neptune in Pisces is as mystical as it comes. They understand, or simply become One with the inexplicable. They dream. Yes, they can be timid, fearful, unfocused. Yet the blur is what lets them see when something is different. By not having hard focus, they are able to navigate beyond what might stop another person. When others are distracted, they keep right on going to the core. It’s not necessarily what they see, but how they see it! Neptune Pisces believes by feel. They catch visions, insights, yes, worry too, but that all guides them. This will work, that won’t. If we are old enough we can understand what’s ours and not ours and we can get help to get past disappointments. Sometimes, the Soul can’t bear it, doesn’t get help soon enough and we may not recover from addictions. And there is compassion and there are Miracles.
Saturn learns to look at things for real. For example, parents may want the best for us and they aren’t always right. Part of our growing up is to learn to be at peace being ourselves and not blaming our parents. True, there are extreme cases where that fails. Shown a way through, though, Saturn is a helluva hard worker and can prevail. Sagittarius may be over optimistic, but Saturn brings a balance between faith and what really must be done. Neptune can become more sure by Saturn’s here and now living example. Neptune can soften Saturn. It’s ok to not expect so much by such and such a date. Human Spirit and learning is on its own time. Humility and Surrender are part of being. Neptune is so glad Saturn can make things happen. Saturn is glad when Neptune whisks them away, away from their work to that resort that even they have to admit is magical!
For those of you having just recently had, having or very soon to have your Saturn Returns [when Saturn comes back at 29 year intervals to the same degree and sign it was when you were born], Saturn at 6 degrees this Full Moon is likely to be in a complex relationship with your Saturn! There will be scary moments, profound moments, challenges, awakenings. There could be an array of thoughtful ideas, intuitive perception, amazing dreams, breaking away from old patterns, addictions. It could bring sadness, a sweeping grief, and some of the greatest joy you ever had, at the same time. You might feel forsaken, yet it can be an enveloping experience and push you out the door, onto new ground.
So, let go, get to work, take time out and away, get to work, let go. Test your theories, let them muddle and morph in the Dreamtime, test them for yourself, soften the boundaries, let your ideas expand, see how that works, dream again! Progress. Be the change you want to see happen. Let the Sagittarian horses of your imagination take you for the full ride! The fantasy is real!

Sagittarius New Moon –
Two TSquares, Venus trine Neptune!
Friday Dec 11, at 2:29 AM Pacific – 19 Sagittarius 03
Wonderful Dream Time art by Marie LoParco of Hand2HeartStudio
The last New Moon of 2015 is in an optimistic Sagittarius immersion! Recently Moon and Sun trined Uranus in Aries, and sextiled the Aries planet Mars! Mars has been opposite Uranus since Dec 1, made the exact opposition Dec 10, the day before the New Moon, at 5:30 PM Pacific! Mars has lit the powder keg! Hope you have been a bit careful. Moon and Sun have been tremendously shaken, awakened, inspired, now afire ready to take action. There is a plan for the future and they can’t wait to go! The Mars/Uranus opposition has T squared with Pluto in Capricorn. This will bring back memories of 2010 economic challenges and only make us more determined to rebuild, turn our losses to gains. Cardinal signs, Aries – Libra, and Capricorn, are go getters! This amazing Journey is just beginning!!!
New Moons are like a wellspring! They are banked on the preceding 27 day lunar cycle, the cycle that is deep in our memories from the Sag New Moons years before, that place in our personal chart where Sagittarius presides. There is a generosity there, a big hearted Spirit, and abiding faith in the matters of that place. We teach from there, we give hope, replace our fears with courage. Always be building your foundation well, for each step is the gift of another.
The quiet darkness of New Moons makes the stars overhead more brilliant, we can take a deep breath and let go. Our thoughts become more clear and focused with nothing to distract them. We feel more collected and centered, a connection between Earth and Sky. We are the Conduit. Sagittarius loves a discussion of things primordial. Traveling in our minds is just as profound as a pilgrimage to the Soothsayer, one who tells the Truth. Sun gives Life and Light, Moon gives comfort and support. Powerful merger.
The New Moon has recently squared Chiron in Pisces, will square Jupiter in Virgo. This is a Mutable TSquare, adept at adapting, moves beneath your feet, better than a kaleidoscope! Clicking with Chiron, we delved for infinity. Afterall, Chiron was immortal and learned a lot on his path. He being chief Centaur, a horse, like Sagittarius, rode the long ride, a respected teacher of medicine. Moon and Sun in Sagittarius are on a sacred Path of gathering and sharing that we may all live a better life, every little step of the way. In Pisces, it is more than just knowing and looking good and smart, it is being sensitive. It’s how you say it, when you say it, how much you say. Being intriguing is an art. Opening doors to learning is a true gift.
The next step of this TSquare is with Sagittarius’s own planet Jupiter, now in Virgo! When you have the message right at eye level, amplify it! Throw out a few details that make it credible. Dress it up to make it desirable. Let them know you have cracked the code, the Path is accessible, easy to follow, easy to replicate! Jupiter in Virgo may be a little opinionated, a tad picky, but let your companions know how specially different we each are. Think it through for yourself. Put your personal touch on it. Sometimes we are so happily surprised to find another good way of doing something that is even better than what we always did before!
Precious Sweet Dreams, Artists of Spirit, Soulmates! Venus trines Neptune. Pay attention to what you dream the nights of Dec 9 to 11. Infusions of Lotus and lilies. The beauty of being underwater – fishes, sea plants, corals, anemones. A dreamtime conversation with a Great Being, a loved one no longer with us, a future friend. These blessings will inspire us further to remember healings we wished for, remind us what we can still do. We dedicate ourselves to keeping our lives clean, simple things like recycling, being right with others, loving even when we don’t understand, yet. Love yourself just as you are. No denial. Get help from wise Souls if you need it. Give it if you got it.
