The Lunar Return

Astrology can provide many valuable panoramas as you move through this world, from a lifelong overview to the snapshot of the opportunities available in a single instant. The view you get depends upon how far back you pull from the subject and thus how much your eye, so to speak, can encompass. In the words of the Sesame Street song:

That's about the size,

Where you put your eyes,

That's about the size of it.

It's all in how you frame your picture. The closer to the subject you get, the greater the detail - the farther away, the larger the scope. The natal horoscope with its transits and progressions can, for instance, give you a view of all the days of your life, painted with a broad brush. Or, the sweep of the heavens in the instant of the moment can portray where you're at right now. In the middle, the pictures of the coming month or the coming year are available to you in the form of lunar (monthly) and solar (yearly) returns.

What Is A Lunar Return?

Your Lunar return is the monthly chart of the instant the Moon in the sky returns to the exact position it was at your birth. It's kind of a monthly birthday, and the arrangement of planets it displays reflects the patterns of your coming month. Each month, this re-birth-day works out its potential for you and then is renewed once again 27 1/2 days later with a new set of surprises and opportunities.

How Does It Work?

Like your natal chart, or any other kind of horoscope, a Lunar return is a chart of a beginning - in this case, the monthly beginning of the lunar cycle that started at your birth, which is the cycle of your response to your environment, including your emotions, feelings, interactivity, social well-being, and generally how creatively you react to the challenges and opportunities of life. It works on the principle that when you begin something - anything - everything that flows from it is bound up in the initial conditions under which it started. The beginning is your foundation, and you build and rest upon it until you are finished. A Lunar return is the astrological depiction of the new beginning you make each month and what results from it until the next cycle begins.

Well Begun Is Half Done

"The beginning is half of everything," said the ancient Greeks, and so your monthly beginning is something to be taken seriously and honored, if you want your lunar month to have a good start. Thus, give yourself a little time and space to rest and meditate if you can in the few hours surrounding the time of your Lunar return each month. Take the time to think about what lies ahead, plan your strategies, and gather your resources so you can make the best of what's offered. Look over the aspects in your Lunar return chart and the days and times ahead where they individually kick in. Once you've got a calm picture of the challenges and openings to come, you can rise to seize the day, one moment at a time, and make the most of the month.

Changing The Picture

The planetary positions in a Lunar return are locked in at the moment the Moon returns to its natal place. Where these positions fall in relation to the local horizon, and thus the areas of life in which they work, is entirely dependent upon where you are at the time. Thus, if you see that your Lunar return is going to develop a picture you'd like to rearrange, that can be accomplished by placing yourself at the right spot on the globe to fine-tune the event. Many astrologers travel widely in order to adjust both Solar and Lunar returns - I have done so repeatedly over the last 35 years with apparent great success, so I recommend it when necessary. Moving about extensively every month is not easy for everyone, but being aware that it affects the Lunar return is a plus if you normally travel on business and have some say as to where.

Pieces Of The Puzzle

The Lunar return is a large piece of the astrological picture of what happens with your life every month, but it is not the only one. Lunar transits, New and Full Moons, and other factors also weigh in, so they have been included in this report so you can have a more complete picture of what to expect and what you have to work with. You should remember, however, that factors whose timing is as short as a monthly cycle are more like the minute or second hands on your life's clock face. Don't forget to stand back every now and then and refresh yourself with the big picture of where you are and where you're going, which are described by long-term transit and progression cycles. After that, you can get back down to the day-to-day nitty-gritty which the Lunar return offers and know that your focus is tracking and every moment is enjoyed and utilized to its best advantage.With that in mind, read on and launch yourself into the coming month with the wind at your back and the planets racing by your side...

Your Personal Lunar Return

Your Lunar Return Chart This Month

Your Lunar return can be read in a manner similar to many other types of horoscopes, except that in doing interpretations it must be kept in mind that it has an unusually short life. The chart is only in effect for 27 1/2 days until it is supplanted by the next Lunar return. Thus, where the middle and outer planets are concerned, there is little or no change of sign over literally dozens of Lunar returns. This makes the overall influence of signs more of a long-term, barely changing backdrop and thus negligible in effect. The house placements and the mutual aspects of the planets and Angles thus become where all the action is, fueled mostly by the faster-changing positions of the inner planets. That may be just as well, as trying to stuff too much interpretive information into a description of a single month leads to diminishing returns, and what is important gets lost in the shuffle. So what is most important in a Lunar return? Certainly the house positions of the Sun and Moon, and the sign of the Ascendant, which represent the main areas of focus for the month, along with the house positions of the planets. After that comes the aspects of the Lights, Angles, and inner planets to each other and to the middle and outer planets, which describes the dynamics of the month. Last comes the aspects of the middle and outer planets to each other, which provide a background dynamic upon which the rest play out. These, taken together with featured elements of your natal chart highlighted by Lunar Return positions, give an overall picture of the coming month.

Daily Events

After a look at the overall picture for the month, daily influences are painted primarily by the transiting Moon as it passes through the natal and Lunar return houses and ticks off its conjunctions to planets in both the natal chart and the Lunar return chart. This accounts for 47 occurrences, each of which happens once, in varying orders, throughout each month. As the Moon transits the houses and planets of the natal chart, it triggers events that are both personal to the moment and yet connect with more long-term issues as well, since the natal chart abides permanently. As the Moon touches the houses and planets of the Lunar return, however, its effects are to highlight and spark off the trends depicted in that chart only, and thus apply only to very short-term developments. These Lunar transits thus give what amounts to inner and outer pictures, short-term and longer-term effects working together, both of which are described in the text.

Personal Void-of-Course Moon

One final, and very useful, addition is the Personal Void-of-Course Moon. The period of time every 2 1/2 days when the transiting Moon has made its last aspect to another body in the sky before changing signs is described as a Void-of-Course Moon period. It can last from a few minutes to over a day, depending how late in signs the planets are at the time. Because the Moon at this time doesn't really have its "feet on the ground," is generally considered a period unfavorable for tangible decisions that require solid support, but an excellent time for insight, relaxation, and  reaching outside of confining boundaries. Many astrological calendars include a monthly list of these times. If you have natal planets late in one or more signs, however, an ordinarily Void-of-Course Moon may still be making aspects to your chart, allowing you a special exception from the rule and giving you a decision-making advantage at this time. Conversely, if your planets are mostly early in signs, then for you the Moon goes Void-of-Course sooner than for the rest of the world, allowing you to check out and party early, while others are still in a more mundane frame of mind. Thus, included here is a list of your own Personal Void-of-Course Moon times unique to you alone, in order to give you a very specific personal advantage. They each begin when the Moon makes its last aspect to your chart and end when the Moon enters the next sign.

Lunar Return: Nov 16, 2007

As in a natal chart, the first thing you look at is the position of the Sun, Moon, and Ascendant. Their positions and aspects form the fundamental dynamic for the month: whether it's coming on like a juggernaut, sneaking up like a cat, stumbling in like a bull in a china shop, or striding in like a hero. Since the Lunar Return Moon is the same as your natal Moon, any aspects to it are also transiting aspects to your natal horoscope, thus uniquely entwining both charts and making the Lunar aspects especially important. The house position of the Sun and Moon tell you where your main action will be all month, and the Ascendant sign show the overall style. Easy aspects of these to the rest of the chart will show a month whizzing by according to plan. Hard aspects will indicate tangles and challenges to overcome. The text relays how to make the most of the former and how to transform the latter to get best results from the month.


Connections, both personal and technical, will be at the center of your efforts for awhile, affording you the opportunity to be a great communicator. Now is the time to network, put your surrounding ducks in a row, and tie up personal loose ends in general. As you do this in the personal world, so you will have to do it in more common matters particularly relating to how you are tied to the world around you by lines of communication, technology, and science. These days, you're only as good as the machines around you, so make sure everything is in working order and good repair. A flat tire or blown fuse can bring the largest operation to a halt, so go over your safety checks and make sure all is in order.

Sun in Third House


A creative, even playful response to your environment will be key no matter what your overall game plan may be this lunar month. Take time out to please yourself and be pleasing, and you'll glean fuel from it to power the rest of what you're doing. When you don't take things too seriously, that's the time when you get the most serious things accomplished, and with ease, so feel free to let go. Whatever you do, put some fun into it and it will go farther. The essence of being a successful adult is having been a successful child. Both are still available to you, so take advantage. You can't win if you don't play...

Moon in Fifth House

Restlessness, indecision, and conflicting opinions can be troublesome and you may find some difficulty in separating your feelings from the actual facts in the situation. Digging out the truth may take multiple tries, but you'll get there if you try, try again and refrain from opening your mouth before your brain is in gear. The greatest temptation, and the most to be avoided, is to simply make up a convenient story to gloss things over. That's not just because lying is bad, but because you're not likely to be good at it now, which could get you doubly in dutch. Watch out for this same potential in others, because it's in the air, when you try to untangle unlikely statements.

Moon Square Mercury


It may seem like you have to have permission to start anything going this lunar month, but once you get a handle on the protocol required, you can get things going. Events will either be handled just so, or they will be chaotic and sloppy, and not much in between. Whenever you can get a written agenda ahead of time, you'll be ahead of the game by knowing the rules. Once agreed upon, however, this approach can quickly see you through the complexities of the month, as it's all connected, a part of the plan. Keep your eyes on the path right in front of you, and the road will be clear. Omit needless words, edit down your thoughts, and you'll be on the path. Success through structure.

Ascendant in Virgo

Use your energies to combine with others', so that when everybody pulls together, the really big things can be accomplished. Your ability will be to insinuate your strength in a way that is not so obvious yet just fills in the right spot to call the tempo and guide the efforts. You don't need to huff and puff and strain yourself, just choose the right point and push lightly - everything will move along like magic. Timing, not force, is everything right now, and if you can remember how you pulled it off this month, you can save yourself a lot of wasted heaving and hauling. Brains, not brawn, are your biggest muscle.

Mars Sextile Ascendant

Look to others, especially a close partner, for inspiration this month, as they may be a font of new and original approaches to life and circumstances. You may find them somewhat abrupt in explaining themselves, but that's impatience born of the fact that they understand what they're telling you but you don't. Avoid confrontation while getting the details of what they have to say, and don't take it personally, it's only intended to illuminate and help. You should not only forgive personal eccentricities, but examine them and see if there isn't something in it for you, too. What may seem as a strange or unorthodox approach may be just the thing to yield pleasure and profit, once you really get into it.

Uranus Opposition Ascendant

The inner planets change significantly from month to month and indicate the personal permutations your life is going through. Basically, it's the framework of how you play the game, who else is playing, and how they're playing it. Easy aspects mean you win with no contest, hard aspects suggest a more hard-fought game that may put your life skills more to the test and increase your personal growth and talents through experience. The text relays both sides and gives advice on what games to play, what ones to avoid, and the best strategies - whether you want to raise, hold, or walk away.


This period is marked by both the inclination and the ability to get down to brass tacks about money and finances and clearly spell out what's happening. Make lists, add up totals, put your ducks in a row and you'll feel a lot more secure about where your security is coming from. Define what's yours and what's not, so you know what you have to work with. You'll find new ideas about money and how to handle it spring to life, and new opportunities as a result. A good time for a second look at IRAs, CD accounts, mortgage rates, investments, efficient use of property such as house and car. Whatever is yours, whatever you personally own, now's the time to count it up and sort it out.

Mercury in Second House

Carefully laid and implemented plans can grow to maturity now, as long as you take the time to see it's done right. Stepwise is the rule, but you can pick up every stitch more easily than you thought as the result of double-checking and sharing responsibility with others. The image of a well-oiled machine comes to mind, a mill that grinds slowly, but exceeding small. And exceeding well. Quality control projects go well now, as do mapping and measuring. Keeping the speed limit is a boon when the lights are timed, so everything goes like clockwork. Meticulous engineering marks the fine driving machine - drive on...

Mercury Sextile Saturn


You may find yourself getting a little more affluent for a bit, even if it's only the appearance of affluence. It's a time when you can put an especially good face on your investments and thus maximize their benefits. What you have to sell looks good and fetches a better price. What you choose to keep looks more desirable and thus increases your overall worth without further acquisition. As a result, you should strike while the iron is hot and take advantage of the situation as it presents itself. Don't part with what you love - rather, deck it out - but what you sell, sell high. Throughout, you'll be feeling special pride in ownership, which brings admiration.

Venus in Second House

You could probably just lay back and rest on your laurels this month, but that would be a waste, since you're in position to consolidate your gains and earn yourself even more respect. You may find that self-promotion is quite unnecessary and even inappropriate, as others will do the job for you. Your function should be to appear to be as good as anything said about you, yet hardly to have worked at it. Appear to take success for granted (like it were owed to you) but in fact treasure it and take all you can get without appearing greedy. When it's your turn to shine, no sense in hiding your light under a bushel - let your light shine.

Venus Trine Midheaven


This is a period to shine professionally and to redouble your efforts to deserve the praise you receive. You will likely be inspired to pursue new directions with vigor and be a force to reckon with in the marketplace. It's a time to interact with those around you and hold your position, as to be passive would be to invite unjustified insalubrious commentary that might do damage to your reputation. In plainspeak, repudiate rumors spread by jealous competitors. All in all, this is a good time to wave your own flag - others will rush to salute it. On the downside, all work and no play will make you dull, indeed, so resist the temptation to become a workaholic, even though it may work for you in the short run.

Mars in Tenth House

Mars Retrograde

Every couple of years Mars goes retrograde for about two months, impacting on two or three of your Lunar Returns. The period during which it is retrograde (Nov 15, 2007 to Jan 30, 2008) marks a background that affects everyone in a similar way and is not to be ignored. It slows down ongoing projects, often hamstringing the ability to get on with things. It forces restarts after the period is over, and it generally causes the energy level all around to lower, dragged down by unnecessary repetition, frustration, and fatigue. This, too, will pass, but wise up accordingly, store up extra energy, and don't try to overshoot the mark. Projects you want to be especially strong and vigorous should wait until it's over.

When everything you say is original, it can seem quite humdrum. That could be the way you feel, or at least appear to feel right now. The ability to make the extraordinary quite ordinary and thus acceptable to the more conservative is accentuated this month, so use it with a will and don't take it for granted. Trying out new approaches and making them work, whether at home with a partner or in the workplace, is something that can be done more easily and you can take large steps that might have been worrisome or awkward at other times. Fortune favors the bold, and especially those that don't look twice but just proceed. That can be a risky approach at some times, but this time isn't one of them.

Mars Trine Uranus

The positions of the middle and outer Planets - Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto, along with the Moon's North and South Nodes - change little from one Lunar Return to the next, so they add more of a backdrop, the stage set on which the monthly play is performed. They are very powerful, however, and their long-running helpful and troublesome aspects are not to be taken lightly. They can be like a rope to swing yourself across the stage or a trap door that will cause a fall if you're not watching. The text on the mutual aspects of these giants to the inner planets and the Lights, and where they fall by house, shows you just where to watch for them, what mood they're in, and how to get them on your side.


What a perfect time to expand your home surroundings - not just rearranging things, but spreading out, building up, making your tent more inclusive. You'll be in special touch with the more generous part of your nature, and to the extent you are you will be rewarded accordingly, even if not until later. Why go out, when you can entertain at home? Parties and socializing at your place are preferable to hoofing it elsewhere, and you'll even manage to organize help to tidy up after. This is a fine time for sharing confidences about your inner beliefs and agreeing on what your bottom line is and what you stand for. You'll be surprised how many share your views - or are ready to convert to them.

Jupiter in Fourth House

Sometimes innovation and expansion arrive on a gentle breeze, sometimes on a hurricane. This time is likely to see the latter, when progress is not to be resisted or it will overcome you by sheer force. This does not mean you have to get on board of every new brainstorm, but if you see a juggernaut coming, either climb on or get out of the way. On a personal level, however, this can mean shoving your ideas or beliefs down someone's throat, albeit with well-meaning, and that can be tantamount to coercion or worse. No means no, whether you believe it or not, and since this is a tendency in the air in general, you may be the one on the receiving end to most benefit from that.

Jupiter Conjunction Pluto


If you think you got away with it scot-free, take a second look. Failings you may have even forgotten about can come back to haunt you right about now, so it might be a good idea to go back over the recent past and pick up any stitches you might have missed. The issues that will slow you down are sometimes the most difficult to see, so welcome the input of others, even it sometimes may be less than flattering. You can't fix what you don't know is broken. Consolidate your position behind the scenes so you don't give yourself away by loose ends showing. If you write in a little extra time on your calendar for unexpected delays, you'll still be right on schedule.

Saturn in Twelfth House

Difficulties with personal relationships can put a dent in your ability to pull off career moves and can generate less than complimentary fallout unless you go out of your way not to seem too critical or put up undue opposition to others' needs and demands. This may not be entirely within your grasp, as it may have to do with someone else's failings that you cannot do much about. Expect to lose some ground, so make sure you have the ground to spare in front. What you can afford to lose is simply a gift to Fortune, which Fortune repays in her own good time. In the meantime, be patient with yourself and with others, as misunderstandings will repair themselves if you don't press them.

Saturn Square Midheaven


It could be really easy to get into an argument with your partner around now, but don't fall for the bait. Just back off, and things will subside as quickly as they arose. The same kind of electricity in the air makes for sudden spontaneity and you can get into things together you never dreamed of before. You also may find a new relationship drops down on you from nowhere and demands your immediate attention - which is, of course, just what you should give it. These things don't happen every day. Don't: get cross, get mad, fight back, get hurt. Do: be spontaneous, cut loose, experiment, be free. Opportunities have small windows of opportunity but big possibilities. Don't let them evaporate before you're fully aware they're there. Stay alert, react quickly, be ready to cast your fate to the winds.

Uranus in Seventh House


Health issues may temporarily cloud your skies, but don't let your imagination run wild - there's a concrete explanation, and solution, waiting in the wings. Don't make decisions in that division without consulting an authority, as flights of fancy may lead you astray and exacerbate the situation. Everyday work proceeds as if in a dream, which is about where you should leave it for awhile, as rearranging your routine now will simply mean you have to do it all over again all too soon. Not that you can't come up with some ideal solutions, just that they may not seem so ideal as circumstances change down the road apiece. In general, let sleeping dogs lie for the moment and tend to thoughts of improvement that can be put into action in the near future.

Neptune in Sixth House


If you have any simmering concerns or disagreements with others on the home front, this is not the time to bring them to a boil. If you avoid the temptation to rise to the bait, you'll find that seemingly intransigent problems simply fade away by themselves through changing circumstance, leaving you to put together a new order in harmony. Opposing a sea of troubles will not end them, so it's better to weather it out and wait for a change in the surroundings. If this means compromise, go for it, or simply refuse to get into a fracas at all. Remember, your home is your inner countryside, and civil wars do the most to ravage it. Better to tarry than be stern. All things come to those who only sit and wait.

Pluto in Fourth House


New responsibilities in the workplace can tie you down this month, but only to the extent that you let them. Therefore, watch what you say you'll do, because chances are it will entail more than you think. Still, what you take on now could be the kernel of much larger things to come, so it's also an opportunity. Unasked-for favors are likely to happen behind your back, so don't expect to actually see some of the nicest things that happen for you, at least not for awhile. When you finally learn about it, you'll be pleasantly surprised. Watch out for other paybacks that might not be so agreeable, and don't be blindsided by those who do not have your best interest in mind.

Node in Sixth House

Featured Planets

When selected Lunar Return positions occupy the same spaces as bodies in your natal chart, this highlights certain natal inclinations for the month. It will mean that certain elements in your fundamental character will be emphasized both internally externally. These will be the areas that most appear to represent you for the moment and that others will seize upon as entry points to your personality. These are the areas in which you can put your best foot forward to make the most effective and gratifying steps ahead, providing your first line of challenges and opportunities to embrace the world.

Saturn Highlighted by Mercury

Your ability to do less with more and come out with lasting results will be put in the spotlight, as will be your capacity to sustain your efforts and exercise authority within your personal territory. If you appear to have your act together, this month will be remembered as the time you demonstrated it and will enhance your credibility for some time to come. Thus, in a unique way, challenges become opportunities, restrictions become bulwarks, and working with less means being able to travel lighter and faster. Don't be afraid to be seen as a taskmaster, either to yourself or others, as the extra discipline you show now can make the month, and months beyond.

Daily Events: Nov 16, 2007

As the Moon speeds on through the month, the minute hand of your Lunar Return, it moves through all twelve houses of both your natal chart and the Lunar Return chart, as well as hitting both sets of planets. These are the times to look for specific events that activate these parts of your monthly picture and will offer times for making your best moves. There are forty-seven such events, and they repeat every month, but not at the same time or in the same order. Plus, the playing field and basic potentials of each month differ, so each of the basic transits has a different role to play every month, while retaining its core implications. The individual transits begin with the symbolism of the degree at which they occur, followed by an interpretation of their general meaning, and finish with a handful of specific "issues and accents" to address, which they may bring into your life. Finally, your personal Void-of-Course Moon periods will vary widely and are important timing factors in the daily decision-making process, so keep a close eye on them.

Fri Nov 16, 2007    Moon in Aquarius 

Sat Nov 17, 2007    Moon in Aquarius 

03:09 am    Moon Enters Return's 6th House

17° Aquarius:  The master is sleeping in the little hut near his newly discovered gold mine, with his faithful dog on guard. COMPETENCY

The daily structure of your life and work is often taken for granted and so can fall into disrepair. This is a time to reinvent the ordinary and make it special, to see that the habits and methods that make up your daily operations actually serve the purposes for which they were intended. By being a do-it-yourself efficiency expert, you can make this month more productive and less boringly repetitious. If it works, embrace it. If it doesn't, erase it.

Issues and Accents: productivity, subordinates, guidelines, laundry, dining

07:47 am    Moon Conjunct Return's Neptune

20° Aquarius:  A large white dove circles about and about overhead and then descends and proves to be a carrier with a message. CELEBRITY

Trust your feelings and try to harness your intuition, which is favored. Although goals are different from dreams, you must dream to have goals, and it's at times like this they are born. The seeds of the future are borne on the wind, and when reveries come to roost, the fantasies of tomorrow become the accomplishments of today. But like a hall of mirrors, only one of the images is you, and you will have to find out which one that is, in order to make it come true.

Issues and Accents: illusions, sympathy, forgetfulness, intuition, capriciousness

08:52 am    Moon Enters Natal 6th House

20° Aquarius:  A large white dove circles about and about overhead and then descends and proves to be a carrier with a message. CELEBRITY

This period has a bit of a "back to work" flavor, where picking up stitches and buttoning down projects is the flavor of the day. Where you have gotten off schedule, either at work or in your personal habits or health regiment, now is the time to make the correction and get back on track. By strengthening routine so it runs by itself, you free your hands for more important things down the line and prevent untimely trip-ups from overlooked details at the last minute.

Issues and Accents: files, fault-finding, guidelines, dining, healing

Sun Nov 18, 2007    Moon in Aquarius  (Enters Pisces at 03:15 am)

02:18 am    Moon Void (Personal)   Ends: 03:15 am

08:13 am    Moon Conjunct Return's Moon's Node

3° Pisces:  A dull expanse of rocky formations turns out to be a petrified forest or an eternal record of life lived long ago. SURVIVAL

This is a time when the fox comes into view and the chase is begun, but you may not want to participate in the hunt, so take stock before you go galloping off. The opportunity for emotional or financial attachments and the responsibilities they entail may be something you want to pass on for the moment. Today's blithe commitment all too often becomes tomorrow's burden, so be sure that you really want it before you saddle yourself with more than you may want to carry. This does not mean avoid commitment altogether, but that many call and only a few should be chosen.

Mon Nov 19, 2007    Moon in Pisces 

03:30 am    Moon Enters Return's 7th House

14° Pisces:  A young lady from top of coiffure to tip of toes is regal, and she displays soft beauty of face above fox furs. CERTIFICATION

There is no greater opportunity in life than another person, and your ability to partner well now can turn this period into a cornucopia of possibilities that would not be available operating solo. Don't expect to luck into a good relationship - the best ones are carefully built and meticulously tended. Creating and maintaining space for both to operate comfortably in is the key to making a partnership more than just two people making do. Tend to each other's houses and hearts.

05:27 am    Moon Conjunct Return's Uranus

15° Pisces:  An officer in unkempt campaign uniform is preparing to drill men dressed in military tops quite worn for wear. FIRMNESS

Taking risks on sudden, far-out ideas may generally be inadvisable, but this may be just the time to do it. Sudden flashes of insight may cut through the normal, humdrum solutions and start you thinking out of the box. Don't just throw caution to the winds, but don't hesitate to try something new and different this month if it seems appropriate to the occasion. Remember, however, that doing so may change more than you think and could have you off balance unless you take a flexible stance.

09:44 am    Moon Enters Natal 7th House

18° Pisces:  The celebrated revivalist has erected his huge tent, now warmed by music, lights and the smell of sawdust. COMPASS

Personal relationships can be put into focus now, and you may find that you can share your emotions and responsibilities with a partner who will take a load off your back. By giving credit where it's due and avoiding competition or jealously you will find you often receive more than you give, but then that is what usually results from an open hand and heart. Fairness is at a premium right now, so go out of your way to see that everyone is on an equal playing field.

Tue Nov 20, 2007    Moon in Pisces  (Enters Aries at 07:25 am)

03:27 am    Moon Void   Ends: 07:25 am

06:32 am    Moon Void (Personal)   Ends: 07:25 am

07:55 pm    Moon Enters Return's 8th House

8° Aries:  A large old-fashioned woman's hat is revealed, with streamers flying in a stiff breeze from the east. INGENUOUSNESS

Financial self-reliance is a goal, but sometimes it's better to gamble with other people's money than your own. A carefully-wrought juggling act of balancing borrowed stakes with retooling and refitting your own personal resources can serve you as well as gold in a safe deposit box. Extra baggage that you eliminate right now will make that whole process work more efficiently, so what you can't reclaim for reuse, spin off as gifts or collateral.

Issues and Accents: rebirth, passion, recovery, contamination, reversal

Wed Nov 21, 2007    Moon in Aries 

04:31 am    Moon Enters Natal 8th House

13° Aries:  A bomb that has failed to explode is now safely hidden from discovery. EXPECTATION

Credit can be looked at creatively and used to maximum effect, with particular attention to raising your limits without overtaxing yourself. Recycling efforts may pay off by repurposing something you would have otherwise disposed of. A glance back to the old ways of doing things can inspire and even pay off as you realize there's nothing really new under the sun. Taking out the trash, once you have decided what it really is, can feel like a fresh, new start.

Issues and Accents: rebirth, bedrooms, fidelity, containment, recovery

Thu Nov 22, 2007    Moon in Aries  (Enters Taurus at 08:19 am)

01:47 am    Moon Void (Personal)   Ends: 08:19 am

04:40 am    Moon Void   Ends: 08:19 am

06:49 pm    Moon Enters Return's 9th House

7° Taurus:  Out of the past comes the woman of Samaria to draw water from Jacob's well. AWAKENING

Is your life cinema verite, or is there a plan? Now's the time to invent the latter or improve on what you've got. Dead reckoning can get you where you're going, but why not have a map? This is a good time for establishing the lay of the land, getting that aerial overview that confirms where you've been, where you are, and where you're going. You needn't rush off on the journey, just turn it around in your mind until you have a good grip on the possibilities it offers.

Issues and Accents: discovery, courts, incredibility, benefactors, favoritism

Fri Nov 23, 2007    Moon in Taurus 

04:13 am    Moon Enters Natal 9th House

13° Taurus:  A man, very cheerful in his working clothes, is handling a mountain of baggage the best he can. MAINTENANCE

This can be an ideal time for those long conversations and ambitious exploration of new mental and emotional territories. Your reach feels greater than before and you are only limited for the moment to what you can imagine, leaving the details for later. You can stand back and examine the big picture and chart your way through it. Travel broadens the mind, whether it be a physical trip or an armchair journey of the mind. Believe in what you conceive, and it will come true.

Issues and Accents: justice, confidence, communion, culture, meditation

02:53 pm    Moon Void   Ends: Nov 24, 2007 07:30 am

Sat Nov 24, 2007    Moon in Taurus  (Enters Gemini at 07:30 am)

06:40 am    Moon Void (Personal)   Ends: 07:30 am

10:30 am    Full Moon

2° Gemini:  A nervous gentleman dressed in an elaborate Santa Claus costume is filling Christmas stockings furtively. BENEFICENCE

Full Moon in Natal 9th House

Think big, stretch the imagination, push the envelope of your beliefs and feelings - this Full Moon has the potential to be an eye-opener. The energy is in the air to expand your window on the world, especially where it has been an ongoing operation already in the works. The heady feeling of suddenly having put it all together can have you wondering now what to do with it all, but that will take care of itself down the line. Look for good news on the legal front, as things wrap themselves up and come to a conclusion, but don't count your chickens yet, as it's easy to overestimate right now. Main issues can get resolved now, as all parties are willing to go an extra mile to agree in principle, if not on the details.

Full Moon in Return 9th House

It's time to declare earlier brainstorms and pipe dreams either feasible or not, put them into operation or junk them. Those ideas that have stood the test of time will remain, the rest pass. This can apply equally to legal obligations, politics, or personal beliefs. Either they work for you or they don't. That doesn't mean reregister in the opposing political party or converting to another faith, but you might try voting a different way and actually taking part with others in a different belief system. In other words, it's time to cleave to one position and see if it works for you, rather than scattering your opinion. Be opinionated, but not judgemental, be righteous, but not self-righteous. Feel what it's like to stick to your guns, then you'll know if they are the guns to stick with.

Issues and Accents: reverence, intangibles, learning, maturity, omissions

11:51 pm    Moon Enters Return's 10th House

11° Gemini:  A new real-estate subdivision is revealed with wide paved streets, ornamental lights, and a few newly built houses. IDENTIFY

What people believe you are often seems more important than what you really are, so crafting your public image is critical for success. This is always a mix of real achievements mixed with what's in the eye of the beholder, so make sure that you have both working for you. Find out now what other people, especially your peers, are saying about you and provide information to turn the opinion polls your way. Sometimes a spin doctor is more valuable than an M.D.

Issues and Accents: thriftiness, mastery, reliability, calendar, aspirations

Sun Nov 25, 2007    Moon in Gemini 

08:03 am    Moon Enters Natal 10th House

16° Gemini:  A woman agitator stands upon a platform making an impassioned plea to a surrounding group of men. EQUALIZATION

Professional considerations should be looked at and adjustments made to see that your name is recognized and respected among your peers. While your attention is on it, touch up that resume, touch up your image, and take some time to advertise yourself. Make mileage out of compliments and take credit where it is due. Follow up leads and don't be shy about blowing your own horn, as long as you can truly live up to what you promise. Time to wave the flag - yours.

Issues and Accents: thriftiness, mastery, continuity, occupation, direction

06:02 pm    Moon Conjunct Natal Jupiter

22° Gemini:  An old-fashioned harvest home festival is at its height with flashing dancing couples crowding the barn floor. ASSEMBLY

Look for circumstances to further your good fortune and new ways to develop that further your agenda. This is aided by a generally positive, can-do attitude and a feeling that it's all going to work out for the best. And that's an approach that can make for excellent self-fulfilling prophecies. Generosity is the first option, which tends to be returned in kind, and a feeling of being in touch with the general operating system of life gives insight to the heart as well as the head.

Issues and Accents: complacency, leisure, management, prosperity, law

11:44 pm    Moon Void (Personal)   Ends: Nov 26, 2007 07:07 am

Mon Nov 26, 2007    Moon in Gemini  (Enters Cancer at 07:07 am)

03:38 am    Moon Void   Ends: 07:07 am

Tue Nov 27, 2007    Moon in Cancer 

03:33 am    Moon Conjunct Return's Mars

13° Cancer:  A hand, which is held out receptively, is remarkable for the suggestion of character in its prominent thumb. DETERMINATION

A quick, deft thrust can slay your quarry, but shooting from the hip risks overwhelming return fire. Rash actions seated in annoyance or anger can do a lot more damage than just sitting on your hands and waiting it out. Forceful action can carry the day, but only if it's well thought out and comes from a cool head, not a hot heart. The opportunity here lies in knowing when to pass and let someone else make the mistake, after which you may capitalize upon it.

Issues and Accents: rashness, impetuousness, strength, threats, aggression

08:18 am    Moon Enters Return's 11th House

16° Cancer:  A futuristic editorial office provides unconscious symbolism: table, manuscript, martial visitor; all are square. UNFOLDMENT

What you can't do for yourself, maybe your friends can do for you, and a friend in need is a friend, indeed. You don't want to tap your nearest and dearest too often, but asking for help and support occasionally is part of what makes friendship, and you might do that now, even if you're not terribly in need, just to keep relations from getting rusty. A little mutual admiration can go a long way towards lifting your esprit de corps, and a heartfelt hug beats a handshake.

Issues and Accents: nearest and dearest, options, friendliness, associates, immodesty

02:27 pm    Moon Enters Natal 11th House

19° Cancer:  A fragile miss, representative of proud old blood, is wed by a pompous priest to an eager youth of the new order. SALVAGE

This is a good time to look to close friends for support, either as backing for endeavors you need help with or just for general emotional support and refueling. It's also a good time to tap into others' creativity when your own inspiration well runs a bit dry, and you'll find yourself refreshed as a result. In a similar vein, you may also want to tap into higher resources, both spiritually and financially, to pick up some of their overflow for yourself.

Issues and Accents: peculiarities, disruptions, nearest and dearest, inattention, associates

08:15 pm    Moon Conjunct Natal Uranus

23° Cancer:  A serious little study group, a literary club, has met for social and intellectual fellowship in some member's home. ACQUAINT

The urge to think or act impetuously offers both risk and opportunity. A sudden change of direction or a new direction entirely can put you way ahead of the game, or get you thrown out of it. But, if it's within reason, fly with it and see what happens - nothing ventured, nothing gained. The best maneuvers often burst out full-blown like Athena from Zeus's brow. Don't be impatient with others who may not go along, and be ready to accept consequences, for good or ill.

Issues and Accents: stress, distortion, insecurity, restlessness, renovation

Wed Nov 28, 2007    Moon in Cancer  (Enters Leo at 09:23 am)

00:23 am    Moon Void   Ends: 09:23 am

02:18 am    Moon Conjunct Moon's South Node

26° Cancer:  The magnificent, luxurious library of some wealthy home is revealed; among the cushions several guests are reading. RELAXATION

08:28 am    Moon Void (Personal)   Ends: 09:23 am

Thu Nov 29, 2007    Moon in Leo 

03:18 pm    Moon Enters Return's 12th House

17° Leo:  A volunteer church choir is seen at rehearsal, far more interested in social than musical elements of the occasion. COMMUNION

Behind-the-scenes maneuvering can go a long way toward setting you up for the main event, so don't feel you have to tell all right now to get things done. What you don't know can hurt you, so some non-invasive information-gathering on the sly may be just what you need to take some time for right now. Honesty is the best policy, but do no harm is the bottom line. The less said the better right now, and actions will speak louder than words when the time comes.

Issues and Accents: sacrifice, uneasiness, confession, desertion, repentance

08:58 pm    Moon Enters Natal 12th House

20° Leo:  A group of prehistoric American Indians is seen in the course of an elaborate and impressive invocation to the Sun. WORSHIP

This is likely the quiet time of the month, a lull in traffic, the calm before the storm of renewed energy that will follow. Retreat and contemplation, with resultant renewal and regrouping, are favored pursuits. Use down time to reconsider your options and make sure you are really on the right course. Inner challenges you grapple with and resolve now will result in more focused and effective action when the time comes for it, which will be shortly.

Issues and Accents: sacrifice, confession, desertion, schemes, repentance

Fri Nov 30, 2007    Moon in Leo  (Enters Virgo at 03:45 pm)

06:21 am    Moon Conjunct Natal Pluto

25° Leo:  A solitary camel crosses the desert with his rider; he is indifferent to the hazards of storm and lack of suppliers. ADEQUACY

The inclination may be to push through to get your way, that for the moment the end justifies the means. Stand back and take another look, however, and you might decide otherwise. When you simply "must" do or have something, you probably shouldn't - at least not to the degree you are contemplating. Such feelings are signals that can get you in better touch with deeper emotions and are better used in that cause rather than in the service of a quick ego boost.

Issues and Accents: vacancies, scorn, cleaning out, holdups, intensity

01:25 pm    Moon Void   Ends: 03:45 pm

02:45 pm    Moon Void (Personal)   Ends: 03:45 pm

Sat Dec  1, 2007    Moon in Virgo 

06:07 am    Moon Conjunct Return's Saturn

8° Virgo:  A poor little rich girl, not above five years of age, is given with much attendance a first dancing lesson. PRECEDENT

Setting limits and downsizing some of your operations may be just what you need to get a tighter focus and better utilize limited resources. This may at first seem a downer, but it's really a matter of putting quality over quantity. You cannot be all things to all people, so you have to select what role you can effectively play and divert your assets to support it. Carefully-chosen sacrifices allow all your guns to bear on the target you can't afford to miss.

Issues and Accents: bitterness, curtailment, fear, malice, cramps

05:55 pm    Moon Enters Return's 1st House

14° Virgo:  A large sheet of parchment is covered with finely lettered names and mysterious lines; it is a splendid family tree. GENTILITY

This marks a period when it will benefit you most to use your personality as the winning card in any game you are playing. It's the time to make that sale, impress that client, charm that lover, play to the audience. Don't try to impress them with statistics or your track record, just wow 'em with the way you come on, with the conviction you have in what you present. This is the month's window for being on-stage, so take the opportunity to light up when it's presented.

Issues and Accents: ambition, mastery, self-analysis, self-involvement, self-esteem

Sun Dec  2, 2007    Moon in Virgo 

00:55 am    Moon Enters Natal 1st House

18° Virgo:  Two giggling young girls are sitting facing each other, knees tightly touching, working a ouija board on their laps. SHARP

This is likely your most interesting and active time of the month, when you can project yourself more convincingly and with greater force than at any other time. It's the time to get things done in person, face-to-face, rather than by mail or phone, as your ability to project yourself is at a peak, as is the inclination of others to accept you at face value. It's a period to make extra space in your schedule, as you're likely to have more to do than you expect.

Issues and Accents: mastery, aspirations, self-analysis, self-involvement, action

10:12 pm    Moon Void   Ends: Dec 03, 2007 02:02 am

Mon Dec  3, 2007    Moon in Virgo  (Enters Libra at 02:02 am)

00:59 am    Moon Void (Personal)   Ends: 02:02 am

05:03 pm    Moon Enters Return's 2nd House

8° Libra:  In the depths of the woods is an abandoned farm; in the deserted house a fireplace blazes merrily and mysteriously. PROVIDENCE

This month's finances are best dealt with, or at least planned for, during this two-day stretch. Make decisions, allocate funds, plan a budget, write checks, anything that can go towards wrapping up your money issues for the month. Once these issues are out of the way, you can move on to networking on your next set of issues. This is the time to count your recent winnings, impact any losses, and see what your bottom line is going to fund for you in the near future.

Issues and Accents: inaction, worthiness, volume, service, rest

06:08 pm    Moon Conjunct Return's Venus

9° Libra:  Three Old Masters hang together in an art gallery; they have a room to themselves and seem to hold converse. SAGACITY

It's a good time to be presenting things in the best possible light and dressing up your reality in its Sunday best. When you look good, you feel good, and you make others around you feel better as well. By surrounding yourself with the trappings of love, desire, wealth, and beauty, you bring those very same elements closer to you, so indulge yourself in order to attract the future wherewithal of self-indulgence. In other words, consider play to be an investment in the future as one good thing leads to another.

Issues and Accents: earnings, esthetics, jewelry, games, visiting

Tue Dec  4, 2007    Moon in Libra 

03:36 am    Moon Enters Natal 2nd House

13° Libra:  A children's birthday party is in progress; on a side porch a group of youngsters are blowing soap bubbles. INFORMALITY

Attention to cash flow and how to improve its balance in your favor catches your focus, and you'll find yourself basing both attitude and decisions on how much it costs, what it's worth, who wants to buy it. Your innate possessiveness is at its maximum and it may be hard to part with belongings, even ones you need to get rid of. It's also a time for reevaluation of what you think is important to you and why you consider it so, getting your ducks in a row and making critical choices.

Issues and Accents: duress, benefits, volume, furniture, intemperance

Wed Dec  5, 2007    Moon in Libra  (Enters Scorpio at 02:32 pm)

01:56 am    Moon Conjunct Natal Mars

24° Libra:  A marvelously colored and figured butterfly is spread before the eyes; on its left side is an extra third wing. SPECTACLE

You may find yourself running into brief spells of irritability and/or impatience, when you want to get on with things but your way appears blocked. It's easy to get into a fight, perhaps even easy to win one, but it's not a good time to choose one. Avoid quarrelsome and contentious people who might get your goat and remember that most battles aren't worth fighting. Snap judgments are usually the worst, and you can't regret mistakes you don't make.

Issues and Accents: sports, police, rampages, ventures, energy

05:14 am    Moon Conjunct Natal Neptune

26° Libra:  In an allegorical representation, an eagle and a large white dove are revealed constantly changing into each other. BALANCE

Intuition runs strong for a bit, and chances are that hunch you have is correct, even if you can't put your finger on it or give a reason for your predictions. The same goes for your people-antennae, which are particularly tuned in to the feelings of those around you. It's easy to drift off into a daydream, or simply fog out at a cocktail party. Operating heavy machinery, however, is less than recommended. Don't try to dream and drive at the same time.

Issues and Accents: misinformation, uncertainty, corruption, market research, self-consciousness

06:13 am    Moon Void (Personal)   Ends: 02:32 pm

10:49 am    Moon Void   Ends: 02:32 pm

Thu Dec  6, 2007    Moon in Scorpio 

01:48 am    Moon Conjunct Natal Saturn

6° Scorpio:  Sutter's river empire of early California is seen; then all is swept away in the spectacular gold rush of 1849. AVIDITY

If you are tempted to highlight your insufficiencies, do so in the interest of a better and less wasteful existence. When things suddenly stall, it's usually for a reason, and now's the time to find out why. Don't bash yourself, do improve yourself, you can't overcome your limitations until you truly know what they are. Similarly, limitations are often imposed because you haven't made sufficient use of what's already on your plate. Say grace, and you'll receive grace.

Issues and Accents: deterrents, necessities, routine, defensiveness, faithfulness

03:54 am    Moon Conjunct Return's Mercury

7° Scorpio:  A queer craft equipped with special machinery is the base of operations for courageous divers of the deep sea. COMPLETENESS

This is a time for clearing things up and attempting to be particularly lucid about your current set of plans. New insights can be worked into the picture and details laid out to those who need to be in the know. Bounce ideas off other heads to see a less subjective view of your schemata, then proceed to set things into motion before you lose the freshness of the inspiration. Though feelings may compel, you're best off right now with only what can be expressed clearly in words.

Issues and Accents: reactions, jokes, facts, memory, cameras

03:59 am    Moon Enters Return's 3rd House

7° Scorpio:  A queer craft equipped with special machinery is the base of operations for courageous divers of the deep sea. COMPLETENESS

It takes a village to get anything done, which means to get things moving you've got to talk to everybody in town. If you take this time to be the great communicator and unify your social network you will find there are plenty of hands to go around to get it all done. Open new avenues of discussion that focus not on theory but on everyday nitty-gritty, things that grease the skids for all concerned and avoid wasted time by getting rid of repetition, misunderstandings.

Issues and Accents: school, cousins, proportions, mail, correspondence

04:05 pm    Moon Enters Natal 3rd House

13° Scorpio:  In a rattletrap old wooden barn, an earnest man works in a maze of apparatus: invention at the point of success. CLEVERNESS

Getting the word out, making connections, tying people and things together are the focus, and you can expect more phone and mail activity than usual, so adjust your schedule accordingly. It's a good time for touching base, but not ideal for in-depth conversations which may be put off until you have more time to get into them. Technical matters, networking, and anything that involves media are on the front burner, and machines can take on a life of their own, albeit briefly.

Issues and Accents: stories, back up, contracts, hearsay, journeys

Fri Dec  7, 2007    Moon in Scorpio 

06:18 am    Moon Void   Ends: Dec 08, 2007 03:12 am

02:09 pm    Moon Conjunct Return's Sun

24° Scorpio:  A steady stream of people down a mountain side gives testimony to the power of the man who has there addressed them. APPEAL

The heart of the matter and the main focus of the month gets its greatest boost now, even if it may not seem so at the moment, so keep your eyes wide open and be ready to jump to the tune when it starts to play. It's a time to whip up enthusiasm, not necessarily to get down to brass tacks, so put on a happy face and spread good feelings around, even if nothing else seems to get done. By engendering warmth and excitement, you focus the flood in your direction and partake not only of your own energy, but the environmental electricity flowing down your wire.

Issues and Accents: fatherhood, joy, fame, self-wastage, advertising

Sat Dec  8, 2007    Moon in Scorpio  (Enters Sagittarius at 03:12 am)

02:09 am    Moon Void (Personal)   Ends: 03:12 am

02:09 am    Moon Conjunct Natal Mercury

30° Scorpio:  The town jester is in his element; it is Halloween and there is now justification for any and all his pranks.  SENSIBILITY

Sudden inclinations to figure things out and think things through are definitely the way to go, and it's a good time to put it down in writing lest you forget it. That's also a good idea because schemes hatched now may be somewhat colored by feelings of the moment that can be wisely edited out after a second look. Keep it simple and don't get bogged down in details for the time being and you can cover multiple topics and issues, solve multiple problems while the inspiration lasts.

Issues and Accents: inquiry, versatility, nerves, agents, waiters

02:41 pm    Moon Conjunct Natal Venus

6° Sagittarius:  There is a great display of colorful coming and going in a large concourse of people; it is a cricket game. NICETY

Take the opportunity to express the warmth you feel and don't hesitate to display your social charms in a fertile, group context. Flattery will get you everywhere, so you can safely lay it on thick. Self-improvement and beautification are the way to go, but self-indulgence can slip into the middle, so watch that you don't overdo things because you just can't help yourself. Impluse buying is easy to do - be kind to yourself, but watch your wallet.

Issues and Accents: excuses, leisure, refunds, romance, bedroom

Sun Dec  9, 2007    Moon in Sagittarius 

00:03 am    Moon Enters Return's 4th House

11° Sagittarius:  An ugly old human figure is the carved representation of a god; near the left side is an ever-burning lamp. NOBILITY

Attention to laying the foundations of what you are going to do and be for the month is the order of the day. Build from the ground up and don't start on the first floor until the basement is done. You don't have to complete it all right now, but have the order determined and your materials ordered so you don't have to go back and draw up altered plans later. Where you've already put it all together (or mostly), tidy up the joint, set your house in order.

Issues and Accents: drink, good-byes, houses, office, hurt feelings

10:22 am    Moon Enters Natal 4th House

16° Sagittarius:  A peaceful scene is unfolded to view: a calm ocean, a single motionless ship, a few lazy soaring seagulls. ALERTNESS

A general inclination to hold back and go inside for inspiration holds sway, which can lead you to tend home affairs or simply to withdraw a safe distance to consider what's important and what your next move will be. Similarly, it's a good time to refine defense strategies and patch up those fences that separate you from the neighbors and the outside world, literally and figuratively. When you are sure of your boundaries, you can more safely go beyond them.

Issues and Accents: good-byes, collections, office, manufacturers, hurt feelings

01:42 pm    New Moon

18° Sagittarius:  Little children are playing on the sultry beach, but each is protected from the glare by a tiny sunbonnet. DISCRETION

New Moon in Natal 4th House

This may mark a day or so of raised tensions at home as biological tides run high and elbow room seems harder to come by. Used creatively, however, that can lead to new ways of organizing and arranging your personal space so it doesn't overlap that of others. It's a good time to start new home-related projects as a way to utilize the extra energy in a constructive manner. Letting out your deeper expressions of feeling to another can make things especially intimate right now, but make sure you express yourself clearly and are not misunderstood. The perfect time to feel "at home" with someone, either literally or figuratively. The only thing you'll not want to be is idle - the vibes are too intense to just sit on your hands.

New Moon in Return 4th House

If you aren't already working from home, you might have the opportunity to try it out for a few days and see how it suits you, even if it only means taking work home with you for a while. In general, experimenting with new kinds of personal arrangements and lifestyles at home can put some new spice into the old routine and refresh your inner landscape. This doesn't require (or shouldn't) making permanent changes, but rather initiating a new approach and seeing how it fits you. In other words, rearrange things, but make sure you can put them back the way they were until you've decided just what pattern you really like, with special attention to how secure it makes you feel.

Issues and Accents: drink, concealment, collections, retirement, hurt feelings

02:55 pm    Moon Conjunct Natal Sun

18° Sagittarius:  Little children are playing on the sultry beach, but each is protected from the glare by a tiny sunbonnet. DISCRETION

This is likely your second most active time of the month, as your inner energies get a boost and you are more likely to be in for some ego-stroking. As greater energy and enthusiasm flow, so do the opportunities to expend them, so you might take care not to overdo things or you'll drain yourself. This has a "launch-pad" feel to it, so make sure new endeavors begun now are birthed with a steady hand, as well begun is half done and you don't want slips at the starting gate.

Issues and Accents: speculation, prestige, exhibitionism, boasting, protocol

Mon Dec 10, 2007    Moon in Sagittarius  (Enters Capricorn at 02:52 pm)

00:33 am    Moon Conjunct Return's Jupiter

23° Sagittarius:  Bathed in a slantwise western sun, with the Statue of Liberty beyond, Ellis Island welcomes the immigrants. PRESUMPTION

Positive thinking and a generous imagination can now set the stage for increased opportunity and a bigger piece of the pie. The only limits you have are those you impose upon yourself, and now is not the time to do that. Think big, not only for yourself but for those involved with you, so that win-win situations can blossom and lead to ever-expanding possibilities for all concerned. When you invest in others, you invest in yourself, paying dividends to your posterity.

Issues and Accents: peace, income, morality, applause, loans

09:57 am    Moon Conjunct Return's Pluto

28° Sagittarius:  A splendidly built bridge, a heritage of unknown ages, still spans the beautiful and wildly primitive stream. STURDINESS

You may have to briefly force someone's hand in order to win this round, but that's all part of the game, so don't flinch at the possible necessity. Also don't be surprised if turnabout is fair play and you find yourself the subject of a force play. The bottom line is to remember that it's more than just your game and you can only win if everybody gets to the finish line. Don't try to overwhelm pockets of resistance, however, as a Pyrrhic victory is an empiric defeat.

Issues and Accents: regeneration, new beginnings, mysteries, renovation, plants

08:43 pm    Moon Enters Return's 5th House

16° Capricorn:  The high school grounds are alive with fresh new vitality as the boys appear in their gymnasium suits. ROBUSTNESS

Making the most of playtime can do as well for you as the most earnest work, and setting time aside for recreation and generally creative pursuits will serve to refuel and reinspire the rest of the month. The works of your life are your children as much as any son or daughter, and when they are conceived and nurtured in love, the result can only bring reward. So, listen to the natural soul inside and take some time now to bring those inner voices into the sunshine.

Issues and Accents: licentiousness, dramatics, energy, happiness, betting

Wed Dec 12, 2007    Moon in Capricorn 

03:48 am    Moon Enters Natal 5th House

19° Capricorn:  A little miss of about five has gone to the market with a huge shopping bag and is quite as adult as anybody. FUTURITY

This is a very open time of month, when spontaneity and warm feelings can flow more easily, and the creative and romantic urges compete to hold sway. A good time for connecting with children or for taking a little time off for fun and frolic. Risk-taking is easier, and you're likely better at it now, though don't go out on a limb unless you're sure. Don't push for concrete steps, but go with the flow and let things happen and the results will surprise and delight.

Issues and Accents: self-pride, sunshine, creativity, bravado, sensuality

05:11 pm    Moon Conjunct Natal Moon's Node

26° Capricorn:  In a little glade never trod by the foot of man and in the mist of a waterfall, dances a carefree water sprite. EFFERVESCENCE

Commitments undertaken at this time may last longer and require more of you than you now anticipate, so don't sign on the dotted line until you have read the fine print. And, don't casually say yes to something you don't really mean, because you may be held emotionally or financially accountable for it. This is a time to fine-tune your honor and become more closely aware of your emotional responsibilities, and realize just how much your behavior affects others.
