An energy forecast for the November full moon
by Zoe Davis
On November 22nd and 23rd we have a full moon in Gemini and sun in Sagittarius, after all of the intense Scorpio energy of the past year we are finally moving into larger than life, playful Sagittarius! This is going to feel somewhat like the first day of holidays and we may find ourselves with unbridled enthusiasm!
LIGHTER TIMES ARE HERE!
If the last year has felt a bit unlucky or you've been holding back, things may start to turn around at this time. Trying new things for the fun of it will bring opportunities and greater insights into what can be experienced when you just give things a try. This isn’t a time to be sitting on your hands or putting things off, if you’ve wanted to try something new, give it a go, there’s no harm in trying!
This full moon comes with some tension, there are strong squares between the mutable signs of Sagittarius, Gemini and Pisces. Squares are where we can get pushy or feel pushed, in this case, a mutable square can create a need to do it our own way, but possibly without a solid direction or purpose.
Gemini and Sag can be a little fast for the more sensitive and reserved Piscean energy. This may cause swings of energy between wanting to do and say it now so you don’t miss out, and also needing to sit for a bit until it feels right. I actually know this dynamic well as it is a dominant influence in my own chart! My suggestion is to mindfully do what feels good.
There’s no need to jump on every opportunity, but don’t get stuck waiting for something to feel right because it may never feel right until you just give it a try!
KNOWING WHEN TO QUIT
With this excitable Sagittarian and Gemini influence there may be difficulties around knowing when to quit. Channel your energy into adventures, book trips, plan outings, start the new project you’ve been a bit afraid to try, follow your interests, particularly in the areas of communication, creativity, philosophy and spirituality. Just remember to give yourself the time to integrate, process and move forward with integrity.
There may be a desire to uncover truths, or a desire to be more aware of what life means, sudden spiritual awakenings may occur at this time also leading up to the December Solstice.
Be aware of sensitivities, others as well as your own, acknowledge when it’s time to take a step back, be quiet and allow other perspectives to be revealed. You may feel like you have to have all of the answers but you don’t need to play God, learn, play, grow and flow, and give everyone the opportunity to do the same.
KARMIC RELATIONSHIPS AND SELF CARE
There is still a strong karmic dynamic at play this month, not quite as strong as the last new moon we had in Scorpio, but the lesson of karma will still be felt until we quit engaging with it (see Detaching from Karma).
Being impeccable in behaviour, thought and speech will attract the love and support we all need and deserve. Lazy or thoughtless communication will feel harmful or potentially damaging, particularly around family and business.
Consider starting a practice where you are aiming to one day be effortless in all of your dealings. Use the next year to develop love, compassion and integrity in all that you do and see how it affects your life on a daily basis.
Communication may get weird this next couple of weeks, you may have difficulty expressing yourself as if you can’t remember the words or even which order the words go in. Speech, thoughts and ideas will come quickly and be fast. There may be strong feelings of what you want to say but the words may escape you or can’t come quick enough or come too quick and just fall out of your mouth.
The lesson with communication this month is to slow down, trust what you’re feeling and focus on the message or intention behind the words. When you are listening to others, be aware of hearing the idea or concept they are trying to communicate rather than just focusing on the words, this is a great opportunity to gain insights into hidden intentions and suppressions.
