There is a lunar eclipse on Monday, Nov 30 2020, at 3:29 am CST in 8° Gemini. With all eclipses there is a strong urge to make changes. In Gemini, the drive to change is in the area of communication. It can be helpful to reflect on the way you communicate with others, not only the way you speak but how you listen. There's a tendency over the next several days to get distracted from tasks and responsibilities by the daily news sources. The Sun is in the opposite sign of Sagittarius, making it possible to flip your thinking to underlying universal truths and life philosophy in order to calm a racing mind down.
Neptune is making a station point today as I write this on November 28, going direct at 18° Pisces. The effect is at least a week on either side of 11/28. Neptune's influence makes us spacey and forgetful. Write down your lists and journal your day so you don't forget who you are, where you're going, and where you've been. Neptune's strength is in creative efforts like painting, poetry, music and creative writing. It is also good for inputting positive affirmations especially through guided meditation and self-hypnosis techniques.
Neptune, combined with a lunar eclipse in Gemini, you may find that people make promises they cannot fulfill. Usually that's not out of malice, more that there are unforeseen circumstances. One strategy with any promise you receive in the next few days is to make a back up plan, just in case.

I will be giving the Noon Meditation for the Temple of Kriya Yoga on Sunday, December 13. "Your Inward Adventure" will be posted here around noon on 12/13. I will talk about how the winter months are a good time to turn more deeply within. Reflection and contemplation on sacred texts can enhance this inward adventure.
