MARS conjunct JUPITER, MERCURY square CHIRON.
A new cycle begins with Mars/Jupiter connecting, you have a spirit, motivation and energy for change, to take action and expand on life. Opportunity and possibilities are here, if so…. act now. It’s happening in the sign of Scorpio, go boldly forward, dig deep, take yourself to new deeper depths of your emotions, commitments. You want some intensity, personal power, intimacy and deeper bonding in your life for some major transformation to take place.
Passions and courage are strong, you have an attitude for change and you feel like you can achieve it.
Just watch out for the rough edge of this, Jupiter urges Mars on, to go big, go hard, you can overdo it and that, takes you to a whole other level of change, which you may not really want to go.
Work with the sextile to the Sun, Venus, Pluto all in Capricorn, have structure, goals, rules, stay grounded and steady in the urge for more.
Mercury and Chiron are squaring off while all this is happening, thoughts, communication or your mind and how you process/think about things may be causing you problems and pokes the sensitive spot again, so watch out for all Mercury themed things.

Uranus has been Rx since 3rd Aug, 2017, now the planet known as the “great awakener” is on the move and move he will. Uranus entered Aries in May 2010, he is moving out of Aries in May 2018 and enters Taurus. Big change into a fixed earth sign. Change, freedom, liberation, ideals, vision and independence are all key words when describing Uranus, he can change your life, it can be chaos. One minute you’re here and then you are way over there.
Uranus would have put you in the land of chaos and havoc. You may have found that it was unexpected, shocking/surprising, in some or all ways. Situations or people may have been the cause of the unexpected changes that were being made. It was all for the greater good of YOU. For you to step up and out of the stagnant place that you had perhaps found yourself in. Not easy though, you would have had to come up with a new vision, idea, a new way of being. Even a whole new you.
Hopefully you have and did let go, went along for the roller coaster ride, you probably in many ways had no choice, as the ground was being ripped right out from under you.
He does a few more miles to go before he gets out of Aries, so for some they may have more Uranus to contend with, there will still be some chaos, change and uncertainty along the way. If you know your chart – from 24 to 29 degrees of the Cardinal signs(Aries, Libra, Cancer, Capricorn) will be feeling this transit most strongly.
With all Uranus things “nothing stays the same”, change is the name of the game.
Finding some release, relief!
This year starts right off with a super big moon in Cancer, it’s wrapped up in a water trine, emotional and the feels, with Neptune in Pisces, Mars in Scorpio. Mars is action and energy, you may feel revved up, may want to take some action, you are driven by your emotions, Neptune will take some of the heat or edge off Mars influence, Neptune can bring in the flow, softer, caring, compassionate and openness feel, Neptune will help to dissolve. Be sure you don’t get lost in the emotions, submerge yourself in them, be one with them for to long. Sun is linked to Neptune and Mars this is the way out of the trine otherwise you would have all the emotions without an outlet.
Sun in Capricorn, physical, structure, rules, truth and focus is the way out of the emotional realms or peaks if you do find yourself in one. With this moon you may be feeling it all. Best to ground down, be realistic in your approach and with yourself. Bring structure and form to you day or time, be disciplined.
Cancer/Capricorn axis is safety, security, comforts, internal and external, mother/father. You may be feeling some of these play out or be at the bottom of your emotions. You can see where you are wobbly, not so secure.
Venus and Pluto are on both sides of the Sun all in Capricorn, this brings in some intensity, as you may be longing for a deeper, richer, intense experience, you want to feel the strong connection on much deeper level then you have been. Your soul longs for some truth and depth.
Uranus stations goes direct on the same day as this full moon, another spark to the start of the year. Uranus has been Rx since, Aug, 2017, and gets a going. Uranus “the Great Awakener” chaos and change, excitement, freedom can start to come. New ideas and insight. Pay attention to what is happening now, it will be part of the year and eclipse energy.
Uranus can also be sudden, surprise, shock, quick energy.
Jupiter, Mars and the Nodes are lurking in the background doing more to influence you. Jupiter is moving on from meeting up with the Nodes of fate, looking at the bigger picture before you, and Mars will prompt you or encourage you to take action on that bigger idea or picture. Mars/Nodes will be exact on 3rd Jan.
Full moon the light and dark shadows, illuminations, culmination, rebirth and releases, it’s a heavy way to start the new year off, and whatever emotions bubble up to the surface for you to see, let them come out. The more that’s seen or felt the better off you will be, look at what comes out of the shadow in the moments of illumination. As that right there is your truth. And as you move through 2018 that is the only path to be on.
Moon enters Cancer @6:10:01 pm (aest)

Mercurys 2nd meet up with Saturn(28th Nov, 1st) Astro aspects, Mercury conjunct Saturn, 28 Nov, 2017! there’s more to talk about or more information to come in. Stay steady, be patient, things may not end so fast or commitments may not come together quickly. A process is happening. Saturn generally blocks/stops or limits, plus gives you a reality check but Mars influence is keeping the movement going.
Mars in Libra brings in the energy, drive forward or to keep going with the plans, co-operate is the best way to go. Don’t let things stagnate or stall, stay with it.
This is all about going forward, also a process is unfolding and happening here. Communication is key to all of this, bit by bit the story will be told and will unfold, but there is more to come still.
So keep going, and remember “you got this”
This weeks card is the Queen of Swords – Air – Libra.
This Queen uses head over heart. She is very clear, honest and open in here approach. She is more of a tougher Queen, as she has been through many challenges. She is very good at helping you get clear and certain.
Her great talent is using her mind, working with information and being discerning to have an outcome that is fair and balanced for all.
This may be you or others that are taking this intellectual approach this week when dealing with life.
I do feel this Queen from the Mythic Tarot does take in the matters concerning the heart and she does work with head and heart, but may come across as very dry, detached.

Mercury Rx begins hours before the Full Moon.
Mercury conjunct Saturn.
Sun opposite Moon, both square to Neptune.
Jupiter trines Neptune.
Moon quincunx Jupiter.
Well, there’s a lot going on with this full moon, as I am sure you all know and feel. It’s all a big muddle really, inside and out. But finding your way is a must. Many choices and decisions are going to be made and need to be made, the time now is to work out what all that is about, what do you want and what will you choice? for the next part of your journey, you have been working hard clearing out all year long, here you are at a pivotal point and very close to the end, so whatever is happening now is part of the story of old and new. Over the next few weeks you get the chance to review the story and then go forward after having had time to reflect.
This is the end of a major journey right now, until you reach the end of December and enter January, where you begin again. Best to end on a high note, so when next year comes you are at a place of truth within you, now is the time to be true, honest, clear, and I gotta say with less baggage(very important, you gotta leave that in 2017) fearless, vulnerable, plus have faith particularity in yourself.
This is all about communication, Mercury rules Gemini. Gemini/Sagittarius axis is about information/learning and knowledge/wisdom/experience. Light is shining on the mind, thoughts, ideas, what you need to know, what you know. Pay attention to words, either written or spoken. You’re seeking the truth here with Sun in Sagittarius.
With Saturn involved and he’s a big player, getting ready to leave Sag and enter Capricorn, on the 19-20th of Dec, he has been giving us lesson, upon lesson, deleting and working us through our stuff and karma, to restructure us into our truth, for you to be honest, work with integrity, to grow up, be responsible and own your stuff. You know what you have had to do, let’s hope you have done it. Saturn does reward for the job/work done. And when he moves into Capricorn you will see where you are at on the karmic scale, rewards or none?
So, it’s very important with all of the information/communication that will be floating around to be honest and true in all that you do.
Neptune can spin both ways here, can bring in the confusion, uncertainty, illusion, are you kidding yourself? you may not know what is true and what is not, listening, speaking with clarity, honesty and an openness is the best approach, and ask question if your are not sure. Neptune will help dissolve any barriers, so you can do this with faith and trust in the process.
Adjustments may be made, being flexible, and stay grounded, have a daily practical routine for the next few weeks to get yourself steady and most of all…… slow down, Mercury is Rx remember, you are being asked to go over, reflect and review.
There is an essence of turning the corner, you feel some freedom coming your way. After many months of feeling trapped, slow, sluggish. But there is still an agitating energy in the air, you’re not quite around that corner.
Venus enters Sagittarius and Mars opposes Uranus.
Venus themes of love, money, relationship, values and self-esteem changes and goes into the fiery sign of Sagittarius, you feel your life needs an added touch of adventure, a bit more spice, to feel more sassy. A fresh new look, a more truthful way of expressing yourself, a fun and optimistic approach to your love life. Venus wants to find her truth in regards to Venus themes in her life. You may feel like you need to grab life by the horns, take a few more risks, be more daring and bold, to completely be open for more, more and a little more please.
Mars/Uranus opposition is also adding to this urge to break away from the past and past ways, to be a more true and free. You don’t want to be held back anymore, you want to step into the new direction that you feel awaits you. Mars is seeking the balance but Uranus is shaking it all up, you may feel it’s either…….or.
This of course brings in the edge of impatience, irritability, as you want it….NOW! The trouble with this energy is, it can be a bit harsh and it’s really not the best approach at the moment. Full Moon in Gemini on the 4th, will bring in more info for you to think about and work with.
Keep on working towards expanding and liberating yourself, that’s the long-term goal.
Have patience, stay focused.
