New Moon Nov. 2011

New Moon Nov. 2011

This month's New Moon occurs on November 25, 2011, 15:09 JST (all the timing in this article is to be calculated in JST) at the 3rd degree of Sagittarius. And this month, the Full Moon occurs with Gemini Moon opposing the Sagittarius Sun, so we had better be aware of the themes of Air-Fire polarity. Both signs belong to masculine signs and are oriented toward something new to be brought about. Both also belong to mutable signs so the pace of development might not be stable stimulating intellectual faculty to adjust to the situation. Imagining the Moon as a container and the Sun as energy to fill it, we have Sagittarius' opinionated buy-my-vision energy to fulfill collective urge of the container that might say you-have-to-be-specific-and-tell-me-the-funniest-idea during this Moon month (especially around the Full Moon). It is not constructive if you get too imposing about your own opinion to disrupt let's-learn-together atmosphere that everyone has in general. Let's see what's going on in the world with these points of view in mind for this Moon month.

Aspects to the Sun

Right before this New Moon, the Sun touched Uranus on 11/23. Then the Sun will make contact with Mars and Mercury on 12/2 and 12/4 respectively. So themes of those planets will be prominent in this month's leadership activities. The Sun in this period is translating Uranus' reforming energy to Mars and Mercury so the leadership are about to launch reforming plan (or the plan is to be challenged and re-constructed because of retrograde movement of Mercury).

After touching Mercury, the Sun will make contact with Saturn on 12/20 and Neptune on 12/21 to connect those to somewhat contradicting energies. This is the theme stimulated by Venus at the beginning of this Moon month, and there could be conscious involvement of leadership in the effort to make ideal come true. If there are any corruption or infidelity, they might come up under the public light within this period as well.

Then, the Sun will make contact with Jupiter and Uranus on 12/22 and 12/23. Since this entrepreneurial combination occurs close to making-ideal-come-true Saturn-Neptune translation, leaders could take risks to go for the ideal, or I am hoping that many leaders realize this timing as the chance to do just that.

Aspects among the rest of the planets

There is no important aspect of note among outer planets for this Moon month. But a few translations are interesting to note. One is between Jupiter and Pluto (hopefully spreading the vision of reconstruction) and the other is between Saturn and Neptune (hopefully making effort to make dream or ideal come true). Especially, the latter is interesting because Saturn and Neptune themselves are not going to touch each other directly for now until October next year. So this will be a forerunner of the main event which begins October next year.

The first inner planet to look at is Mercury, which goes retrograde right before the New Moon on 11/24 until 12/14. While traveling backward, Mercury touches Mars on 12/2 and the Sun on 12/5. There might be some arguments over plans which organizations has already put in force, and revisions or improvements are to be made.

Next let's look at what Venus is up to. After having touched with Saturn on 11/22 (some call it "nice married couple's day" in Japan), Venus makes contact with Neptune on 11/25 right before this New Moon. So this part of the symbolism is emphasized within the New Moon chart (thus the events within this Moon month), too. It is interesting to note that the women's association of getting rid of nuclear plants has kicked off (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DPQAB3xCQDA) during this period. A nice example of association formation in effort to make the ideal come true. After that, Venus is very active this month making contact with Uranus, Jupiter and Pluto on 11/27 through 12/1, then with Mars on 12/6 and with Saturn on 12/18, and finally with Jupiter and Uranus on 12/21. With Venus we can assess themes related to the opponent planet or form any kind of cooperation with the opponent planet's theme in mind.

Next, we talk about the action department Mars. Mars completed grand trine formation with Jupiter and Pluto on 11/17 through 11/23 before this New Moon. This symbolizes the action related with spreading the vision of social or organizational reconstruction. I felt the scene around "occupy wall street" or Cairo relevant, and in Japan, there were some news about big money spent wrongly by some company executives (this Mars was in opposition to Neptune before coming into Virgo) as well as heated debate on TPP or budget screening. After that, Mars will touch the Sun, Mercury and Venus (inner planets altogether) on 12/2, 12/5 and 12/6 respectively. As pointed out in Mercury section, there might be some argument about revising plans and there might be some cooperation because of Venus involvement.

Planets which change direction or sign

Planets other than Sun and Moon sometimes change their direction of apparent movement seen from the earth. When a planet changes its direction, it moves slowly and may leave its mark on various social events in the world. Within this Moon month, the planets changing their directions are Uranus and Mercury. Uranus, which has been moving back, will turn direct on 12/10. Mercury has changed its direction to retrograde on 11/24 just before this New Moon and changes back to direct on 12/14. Uranus is related to expression of individuality among group of people, so when retrograding, importance of individuality might be more emphsized but when getting back to direct, ways to incorporate individuality in to the whole group might be more of the concern. Mercury is related to our faculty to think and communicate. When retrograding, we tend to think and communicate about things past or personal, subjective, which makes ordinary communication between people little harder to get through than usual, tending to cause mis-understandings or mis-leadings. Just like we need to sleep and get connected to our roots of unconscious everyday, our conscious mind has to get connected with our individual roots once in a while (or four month). We need to make sure that the plans for the future really make every individual happy and we are digging for the clues to do that in these retrograding periods.

And planets, especially those that move slowly, change their signs in sync with shifts in corresponding profile of social or collective psychology. Within this Moon month, planets which change it's sign, among the planets which travel slower than the earth, are non.

During this Moon month, keeping the points I have raised above, let's try to use our Sagittarius Sun's vision-spreading energy to mix nicely with let's-think-and-talk-about-something-interesting needs of Gemini Moon of this month. It should be interesting to observe those symbols reflected in the real socio-situations in the world.
