Astrologer’s Diary 25th November- 1st December

Sunday 25th November

Early this morning Neptune went direct. It has been going retrograde since June. This summer, apart from being very hot, was also the summer of retrogrades. So it was a time of going over old ground. Now the planets are gradually all turning forwards. From today, Mercury and Uranus are the only two planets appearing to go backwards in the sky. Mercury goes direct on December the 6th and Uranus on January 6th 2019. So we are moving into a more free flowing expressive time.

In astrology, Neptune is the planet of compassion, sensitivity, psychic awareness and creativity. It also the planet of confusion, illusion and even deception. Now that it is moving forward we may feel more compassionate towards others and want to do something about that. I know this is time of year there are plenty of opportunities to donate to charity or to be generous to someone who needs it. We also may want to express our creative ideas to others, perhaps we have been keeping them to ourselves for a while and feel now is the time to let them go, out into the wider world. Neptune is just the planet for going with the flow and trusting the universe. Right! Off I waft to do some dreaming….

Monday November 26th

Astrologically, today is an important day! Jupiter, planet of enthusiasm and luck is in its own sign and it makes a conjunction to the sun also in Sagittarius. This is a time of opportunity and promise. However, Mercury is also very close to these two. As we know, at the moment Mercury is retrograde, and in ‘detriment’ in Sagittarius. Mercury is a sign which likes to analyse whereas Sagittarius likes to generalize so Mercury has to work quite hard in Sagittarius. Therefore as usual it is about striking a balance. Sun and Jupiter in Sagittarius can get carried away. Mercury will help us to consider our options, but watch out for self doubt. Opportunities don’t last forever so to make the most of them use some positive thinking but remember to keep an eye on the details!

Tuesday November 27th
This morning the waning moon moves into the fire sign of Leo. It will make a positive aspect (trine) to the sun in Sagittarius another fire sign. In natal (birth chart) astrology the sun represents your self and the moon represents your emotions. The moon changes signs every two and a half days so within the month that it takes the sun to move through one sign the moon moves through them all. This gives a different emphasis; for example, a Sagittarius with moon in Leo is likely to be more outgoing than a Sagittarius with moon in Cancer who is likely to be more home loving. There are many more factors and each birth chart and person and moment in time is different but the sun and moon are very important in the birth chart.

Uh oh, I am a bit late today, it has been one of those days when I been easily distracted, me surely not! I am a mutable sign, we are known for it, that’s my excuse! Any way, I am happy because I have just finished my predictions for January the North Norfolk Post. As we have just over two days to go until December I am posting my predictions today.

Monthly Horoscope for December 2018 

by Claire Manion Astrologer. 

Aries 21st March – 20th April

As the festive season approaches you could be feeling restless. Around the new moon on the 7th you may want to make changes so you can feel free. Look before you leap and make sure that your actions are based in reality and not fantasy.

Taurus 20th April – 21st May

If you have a sneaky suspicion that a certain person is being secretive with you, trust the feeling. They will speak to you when they are ready; in the meantime keep calm and carry on with the festivities.

 Gemini 21st May – 21st June

As December progresses you are moving into a more sociable and outgoing phase. So make the most of the festive season and let yourself be talked into getting out and about; you may have more fun than you think and get to see some new faces and places.

 Cancer 22nd June -22nd July

You are a creature of habit, but this month your routines look set for a change. It is a time to broaden your horizons and long journeys could be on the cards. There are lots of ideas to discuss and plans to make.

 Leo 22nd July- 21st August

Christmas is a great time for you to express your creativity, whether that means a perfectly decorated tree or carefully chosen gifts. Perhaps you could make something special for your loved ones using your talents.

There is a new phase coming in your home life. Whatever your plans are, it looks like you need to be flexible, so keep a full cupboard and an open mind and see how the month unfolds.

Scorpio 21st October- 21st November

Venus, planet of love and attraction is in Scorpio most of this month so you may find people gravitating towards you. Enjoy the attention; as romance could be in the air at this magical time of year.

Sagittarius 21st November- 21st December

It looks quite full on for you this month, but try not to take on too much. Although luck is on your side, remember to check your diary so you don’t double book yourself; you can’t be in two places at once!

 Capricorn 21st December – 20th January

Amongst all the festivities, you could be feeling a little introverted so try and sneak some ‘me’ time, perhaps a pamper night in might be just what the doctor ordered.

 Aquarius 20th January – 18th February

You are likely to be all set to start working towards a long held goal. Friends and social contacts offer some great ideas and opportunities. So look out for interesting invitations and messages in amongst the Christmas cards.

‘Tis the season to be jolly, particularly when it come to your career. It looks like you have a recent success to celebrate. There may be more opportunities coming your way, so make the most of them.

Thursday 29th November 2018

The moon went from creative Leo to industrious Virgo today. It was time for me to clean that oven of mine, you know when you can’t leave it any longer..! It is looking and smelling better than it did. Moon in Virgo is good time to do cleaning and any fiddly detailed jobs. The moon is waning and will be exactly at last quarter in the early hours of tomorrow 30th November. If you want to see it look out for it in the morning (weather permitting). It rises at 23.04 tonight and sets at lunchtime; 13.21.

Friday 30th November

Wow, did you see the Moon and Venus this morning? We are lucky here to have a beautifully clear sky after all that wind and rain. Just before sunrise when the sky turns that lovely blue, Venus was bright and beautiful, it is the third brightest object in the sky after the sun and the moon. People sometimes think it is an aeroplane coming into land it is that bright- but not quite as fast moving! The moon is beautiful too, crisp and white against the blue sky.It is visible now quite high in the South West. Here in the UK it sets at 13.21 so there’s a few hours yet to get a glimpse of it.

Venus will be visible tomorrow morning if you missed it today. It will be at its brightest on Sunday 2nd December but visible all month in the morning. 

Astrologically, Venus has a few more days in its own sign of balanced peace loving Libra, then it will move into sultry Scorpio on Sunday. So today and tomorrow are good days for any negotiation.

Saturday 1st December

December has arrived. Today I am prepping to get ready for our astrology group this afternoon. Norfolk Astrology Association. We meet the 1st Saturday of the month. We are looking at the chart of Elon Musk entrepreneur, investor and engineer. In 2012 he was he first man to launch a commercial spacecraft – Dragon. It carries cargo to and from the ISS. The chart for the launch of the rocket Falcon 9 which transported Dragon has Uranus planet of revolution, invention and new technology in Aries on the ascendant. This is a great expression of the pioneering spirit of this event. Musk and his company SpaceX were being very courageous and adventurous. They were also making changes for the whole of humanity. He wants to make public space travel possible. To borrow a phrase from Star Trek is was a ‘to boldly go’ moment.
