Monday, November 21st


Around breakfast time, the moon in Libra forms a square with Pluto in Capricorn. Under this placement, we feel anxious and hypersensitive. At this time, it may be tempting to get lost in our own imaginations. A little wishful thinking never hurt anyone. But be careful not to indulge in escapist fantasies too much, or else you might neglect your real-world obligations.

In the middle of the day, the moon moves into passionate Scorpio. This moon is increasing our sensuality and spontaneity. However, it is also enhancing our resentment and aggressiveness. Our friskiness can quickly give way to conflict. Lunar Scorpio is also inspiring our adventurous side. We have a strong desire to visit new places and have new experiences. This desire is amplified by our adaptability.

In the afternoon, the moon in Scorpio forms an opposition with Uranus in Taurus. Under this opposition, we are overzealous and easily irritated. Our moods may change rapidly and we may have trouble adapting to unforeseen circumstances. At this time, we may feel like we have been knocked off balance.

Later in the evening, the moon in Scorpio forms a square with Saturn in Aquarius. Under this placement, we find it difficult to hold onto the positivity we felt earlier in the day. We may feel depressed or unsatisfied with our current situation and find it difficult to express our true feelings. 

Wednesday, November 23rd


In the wee hours of the morning, the moon in Scorpio forms a trine with Neptune in Pisces. Under this trine, we are innovative and have a great enthusiasm for life. We have an appreciation for the beauty around us as well as within us. We feel artistic and attractive. Now is the time for us to put our imaginations to good use and pursue some creative endeavors.

In the middle of the morning, the moon in Scorpio 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. 

Around lunchtime, the moon in Scorpio forms a trine with Jupiter in Pisces. Under this transit, we feel cheerful and generous. We are attracting those around us with our optimism and inspiring others with our altruistic pursuits.

A couple of hours later, the moon moves into ambitious Sagittarius. Under this moon, our spirits are high and our minds are open. Lunar Sagittarius can make us particularly fiery. Now is the perfect moment to educate ourselves on things we may not completely understand. It is also the right time to reevaluate what is most important in your life. 

In the early evening, the sun in Sagittarius forms a conjunction with the moon also in Sagittarius, creating an unpredictable new moon. Under this placement, we are on edge and easily agitated. We may experience intense mood swings. This new moon may cause friction with our loved ones. Arguments with our friends and family may occur. We may feel restless, and struggle to find our peace of mind.

Thursday, November 24th


This morning, the moon forms a conjunction with Venus in Sagittarius. Under this conjunction, we feel particularly compassionate. The moon rules our emotions and Venus guides our values and relationships. When they are in this position, we desire and seek harmonious relationships, particularly with strong, maternal figures. We also pursue creative endeavors. Now is a wonderful time to express ourselves through art or poetry.

An hour later, the moon forms a conjunction with Mercury in Sagittarius. This conjunction can inspire our business sense. We are discerning, capable, and mentally aware. Now is a wonderful time to create our business plan. This preparation will lead to success in the future.

Just before noon, the moon forms a sextile with Saturn in Aquarius. Now is not the time to be impetuous. We must set our intentions using great deliberation. We are taking ownership of the things that are in our control. Our organizational talent is thriving under this sextile. Now is a great time to lead a project at work or tackle any projects at home.

Friday, November 25th


While we slept, the moon formed an opposition to Mars in Gemini. Under this placement, we may be particularly excitable. We might be reckless with our decisions, and become belligerent when things do not go according to plan. We may be at odds with an authoritative feminine figure in our lives. Be careful when repressing your feelings. Keeping it all inside now could lead to an outburst later.

A few hours later, the moon in Sagittarius forms a square with Neptune in Pisces. Under this placement, we are passive and anxious. We may feel extra sensitive and can be easily hurt by the words and actions of those around us. This hypersensitivity can lead us to direct our insecurities inward. We may be unkind and dishonest with ourselves. At times like this, self-care is very important.

Later, the moon in Sagittarius forms a square with Jupiter in Pisces. Under this square, conflict may arise in many facets of our lives. We may find ourselves at odds with others and pick fights with everyone around us.  We may be careless with our resources as well as our health. Be mindful of alcohol and caffeine, because our livers are especially vulnerable.

Lastly, the moon leaves Sagittarius and enters determined Capricorn. Under this moon, we may be operating under a “more work, less play” mentality. We are so close to achieving our goals, we can taste it. We are approaching everything with a serious attitude. Our concentration and attention to detail will help us in professional matters. Through perseverance is admirable, we have to remember to set aside a little time for leisure.
