Stellar Stuff – 16th – 31st October 2016

In Astrology, Insight and Experience by Stella WoodsLeave a Comment

Warrior god Mars will be travelling through Aquarius from 9th November to 19th December helping us fight for causes we believe in and come up with new, creative solutions to problems.

Mars in Aquarius – Rebel with a Cause

 Aquarius plays by his own rules, which are based on freedom, equality and what’s best for the group or society. Warrior god Mars will be travelling through Aquarius from 9th November to 19th December helping us fight for causes we believe in and come up with new, creative solutions to problems. This should be a particularly favourable and productive period for the air and fire signs (Aries, Gemini, Leo, Libra, Sagittarius and of course, Aquarius).

November Full Moon – Abundance & Healing

The November full moon falls in the early hours of the 15th in sensual earth sign Taurus. This promises to be an abundant and healing full moon with Chiron forming a flowing angle to both sun and moon. Enjoy the gifts of nature, fresh air, companionship and beautiful food as the days grow longer in the lead up to the summer solstice.

Sun in Sagittarius – Vision, Adventure & Freedom

From 22nd November to 21st December, the sun travels through Sagittarius, an intuitive fire sign noted for its vision, adventurous nature and love of philosophy. Sagittarius is the ninth sign of the zodiac with keywords “I seek” and “I expand” and those born under the sign of the Archer often struggle to integrate their animal nature with their more lofty human side.

Sagittarians seek expansion on all levels, mental, physical, emotional and spiritual, and can usually be found travelling, studying and exploring life’s big issues. They love to share their wisdom and are often talented writers or teachers. At best they are intelligent, honest, generous and inspirational. Negatively, they can be tactless, self-indulgent, coarse and hypocritical. Some Sagittarians are drifters, constantly in search of new horizons and ever more exciting adventures. Most Archers eventually realise that true freedom comes from commitment and dedication to a personal vision, rather than from the outer world.

In medical astrology, Sagittarius rules the liver, hips and thighs and sacral regions of the spine. When Sagittarians are out of balance they can suffer from sciatica, hip diseases, rheumatism and weight gain. The Sagittarian colours are purple and deep blue. Sagittarius’s greatest lessons are commitment, moderation, tact and learning to deliver what they promise.

November New Moon – Castles in the Air

The November new moon falls right at the end of the month on the 29th in fiery and passionate Sagittarius. New moons bring fresh beginnings and this visionary and pioneering lunation will push you to pursue your visions and dreams. A tense angle with Neptune and the nodal axis brings a touch of fantasy and improbability into the mix … but hey, what’s wrong with that?

November Moon Calendar

Launch projects at the New Moon, bring them to completion in the period from just before the Full Moon to the Third Quarter phase and wind them down and reflect on developments in the week before the next New Moon. Important events such as parties, conferences and weddings are best held close to the Full Moon or when the Moon is in the same sign as your Sun (or Star) sign.
