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!
