There's a lot going on astrologically at this moment of the New Moon which is tomorrow at 9:05 a.m. The New Moon is at 4° Sagittarius making an inconjunct (150°) aspect to Uranus. This combines the upbeat optimism of the sign Sagittarius with the restlessness of Uranus. Many of us will find ourselves trying to go off in multiple directions at the same time. Just as you're focusing on your main priority, you'll find interesting distractions that engage your time and energy. With Sag, the momentum tends to get lost part-way through the project. For some of us, we may find ourselves on an interesting adventure. For others, we may get to the end of the day with nothing of substance completed.
This distractedness is aided and abetted by Neptune, which is making a stationary point, going direct on November 27th at 15° Pisces. This affects us for two weeks before and after November 27th. Positive keywords are imaginative and spiritual. Negative keywords are forgetful and spacey.
Mercury is in a trine to Neptune in the New Moon chart. Mercury means the pen is your magic wand. Write (or digitally input) everything down. Write down your list of things to do. Write down your dreams. With Neptune, your dreams at night may be more meaningful, but easily forgotten if not journaled. With daytime Neptune, write down your dreams and goals for the future. Neptune dreams and goals can be unrealistic but may give you insight into what your heart longs for. Don't act on the Neptune goals right away. Just keep the list somewhere you can reexamine a couple weeks from now.
What about Thanksgiving? With the Neptune station point in effect for Thanksgiving on November 28th there are a few things to think about. If you're the guest make sure you know the right time to be there and remember what you're supposed to bring. If you're the host or hostess, there's a tendency to forget to serve something, like the many times I left something in the refrigerator that I meant to put on the table. It helps to be flexible and have a sense of humor. On the other hand, the spiritual connectedness of Neptune at holiday time can make it joyful and meaningful.
In the future:
Jupiter enters Capricorn on December 2. I wrote several times over the past year that Jupiter in Sagittarius was excellent for learning new things. Jupiter in Capricorn is when you put those new things learned into action. Capricorn is a sign of work and career. Jupiter expands things. Think about how you would like to expand or grow your career. Create a list of ideas, re-do your resume or just focus your goals with an affirmation. Here's a general Jupiterian affirmation you can use: "I am open and receptive to all the good and abundance in the universe."
Wishing you many blessings in this holiday season.
