Let’s talk about this week’s lunar transits and how they may affect our daily lives!

Monday, November 28th


In the wee hours of the morning, the sun in Sagittarius forms a sextile with the moon in Aquarius. Under this sextile, there is decent communication between masculine and feminine energies. We are eager to see and treat our fellow human beings as equals. We have a great sense of belonging at this time. Our loved ones are ready and willing to help us with whatever we need at this time. 

In the early evening, the moon forms a sextile with Venus in Sagittarius. This sextile fills our lives with love and balance. We feel safe and secure with our romantic partners. We are gracious and considerate of others. Now is a wonderful time to consider starting a family or becoming active in your community.

About ten minutes later, the moon forms a square with Uranus in Taurus. Our moods continue to be unpredictable under this square. This instability is causing a rift with our romantic partners. Our heightened sensuality and growing irritability is making our relationships run hot and cold. When we feel moody, it is easy to slip into old habits that bring us comfort. This coping mechanism is perfectly alright, as long as it does not lead to self-destructive tendencies.

Just before midnight, the moon forms a sextile with Mercury in Sagittarius. Under this sextile, we are capable and discerning. With our newfound self-confidence and awareness, we are more open-minded than ever. Thanks to our communicative abilities, we are able to engage more effectively with those around us. Use your openness to heed the thoughts and needs of others.

While we slept, the moon formed a trine with Mars in Gemini. Under this trine, we are endowed with great physical and mental energy. Aquarius gives us newfangled ideas, while Libra enhances our adaptability. You may have struggled with hardships recently, but you are pushing through and persevering. The wind is in our sails and nothing can get in your way.

About twenty minutes later, the moon forms a conjunction with Saturn in Aquarius. This transit can make us feel depressed and introverted. It may be hard to communicate with our loved ones, which may lead us to feel unsatisfied or unfulfilled in our relationships. We may feel particularly isolated from an authoritative feminine figure. It may be difficult, but you may find it beneficial to reach out to a close confidant, a spiritual leader, or a therapist.

This evening, the moon has moved into pensive and peaceful Pisces. This placement may create feelings of empathy and introspection. Let your imagination run free. Some may say that you are merely daydreaming, but you are also self-reflecting. By allowing yourself to unapologetically daydream, you are tending to your inner child. You are doing more than just fantasizing, you are meditating. Fantasizing and daydreaming are important parts of creative and spiritual meditation.

Wednesday, November 30th 


Around breakfast time, the sun forms a square with the moon. As earthlings, we hate to see our celestial parents fight. Under this half-moon, we can face many obstacles in our personal and professional lives. We may feel uncomfortable in our own skin and around others. This discomfort can lead to public disputes. Since we are particularly susceptible to health issues at this time, we may find it helpful to take a mental health day and let ourselves unwind.

Later in the morning, the moon forms a sextile with Uranus. This sextile grants us ambition and a can-do attitude. We are more than happy to help out with projects, both at work and at home. Thanks to our pragmatic sensibilities, we are able to persuade others easily to our way of thinking. We crave a bit of freedom and are curious to see what the world has to offer. It may be time to plan a small getaway or take a day trip

Thursday, December 1st


Early this morning, the moon forms a square with Mars. This square brings out our passion, but it can also bring out our competitive spirits. We feel particularly argumentative, especially with the opposite sex. We try to mask our emotions with hasty decisions. It is important that we acknowledge our own feelings at this time, rather than repressing them. 

About thirty minutes later, the moon forms a square with Venus. Under this square, the flirtatious nature of both of these signs is inhibited. We may be trying to force passion into our relationship rather than letting it happen naturally. We may need to step back and give our partner some space. As cliche as it might sound, absence really can make the heart grow fonder.

Later in the morning, the moon forms a square with Mercury. Under this square, we may not take full advantage of our talents or resources. We may feel insecure and cynical. It may be particularly difficult to hear constructive criticism. At this time it may help to reflect on our own accomplishments. This reflection may help us build trust in our own decisions.

An hour later, the moon forms a conjunction with Neptune who is also in Pisces. This placement has us feeling hypersensitive and secretive. We may feel a great deal of social anxiety. We may also feel the need to once again, withdraw and isolate ourselves. You may want to step away from social interactions for a while. It is okay if you need to self-isolate to recharge your social batteries. 

In the late afternoon, the moon forms a sextile with Pluto in Capricorn. Under this sextile our tender disposition reawakens. We feel every emotion deeply and distinctively. We desire to travel to new places where we have never been. Give into these desires. Be open to new experiences. 

Later in the evening, the moon forms a conjunction with Jupiter In Pisces. At this time, we feel ambitious and motivated to work towards financial gains. We may also feel especially popular under this celestial placement. You are fostering a healthy work-life balance that is allowing you to enjoy your social life and your fiscal achievements. You may feel the desire to take on an artistic hobby or work on a personal project that you have been putting off. 

A couple of hours later, the moon moves into vivacious Aries. This moon reinvigorates our confidence and perseverance. We enthusiastically tackle projects both old and new, easy and difficult. We are equal parts spontaneous and sensible. Though on the surface we may demonstrate a devil-may-care attitude, we have a sharp mind and keen senses.

Friday, December 2nd


Today, the sun formed a trine with the moon. At this time, we feel physically, mentally, and emotionally healthy. We have a healthy work-life balance and we feel proud of our accomplishments. The relationships with our friends and family are strong and our relationship with our partner is flourishing. Take some time to warm yourself in the glow of your personal and professional achievements. You’ve earned it.
