Micro-Forecast: November 19 to 25, 2018

Happy Thanksgiving to all who celebrate this United States holiday. This week’s full moon falls late on Thanksgiving Day and is in the sign of early Gemini. The Sun, our daily light, just entered Sagittarius early on Thanksgiving Day. Remember full moons are when the Earth is between the Sun and the Moon, which is one of the reasons some may feel stretched.

It is likely that this long holiday weekend will be full of parties, travel, and over the top behavior. Jupiter (the planet of grand plans and expansive ideals) just entered Sagittarius. When Jupiter is lined up with the Moon, it lends its ‘big’ nature, which can also be over exaggeration or over reaction to a situation. Jupiter in Sagittarius is one of the luckier places for Jupiter. It enters Sagittarius every twelve years, and this year it started its ingress into Sagittarius on the November 8, just a couple of days after the mid-term elections. It remains in Sagittarius until December 2, 2019.

Jupiter in Sagittarius has the reputation of being somewhat inflated. The last time it was in Sagittarius was at the end of 2007, when it lined up with Pluto, and the mortgage-backed securities were about to open Pandora’s box. This was a time when people would soon realize that the value of whatever they had purchased was inflated. Now, I am not saying this to frighten you. In different industries, this can be a perk, as well as a turning point. For example, if properties have become so inflated in one region, people are often willing to move away in order to purchase property that is far more affordable. This means that people move to different regions (Sagittarius is about traveling long distances) to attain their goals. There is a shift that takes place-a need to become free of something-and not be as encumbered as they might have felt while Jupiter was in the sign of Scorpio, a fixed sign that holds on for dear life.

My question to you is, now that Venus is direct and Neptune is going direct, on Saturday, November 24, what is your vision? Try not to judge your vision, that just gets in the way. Think about how you see yourself living, working, and living your daily life? Look down the road and think about what feels good about this vision? What feels heavy and needs to be discarded? These are the questions to ask as planets go direct.

These are also questions to ask as Mercury, the way we process information, remains retrograde until December 6. Do the research, ask the questions, write the inquiries, make the phone calls. If something you want is not available, be persistent. See it and believe it.
