After a week of a cosmic slowdown, the heavenly machine churns up again. This week have four major aspects (Mars trine Neptune, Mercury sextile Saturn, Venus sextile Neptune, and Sun sextile Saturn), and a solar eclipse in Sagittarius.
First, all the major aspects this week are relatively light. The only thing that is peculiar is that they involve two planets that really don’t like each other – Saturn and Neptune. Saturn is interested in the physical world, which is what you can observe, do, and accomplish. He requires effort and determination. Neptune is interested in the ‘other world’, meaning everything beyond the physical. In Neptune’s world, there is no concept of time, reality, or rules; everything is fluid. So, there will be a tug of war between the need to take care of duties and responsibilities, and the need to escape worldly burdens. It’s going to be necessary to navigate both worlds. My suggestion is to take care of what has to be done and spend plenty of time engaging in activities that feed your soul.
Secondly, we have a solar eclipse in Sagittarius early Saturday morning. This eclipse is the conclusion of the eclipse series that began in 2020. Sagittarius is the sign that represents big picture perspectives, philosophy, and beliefs. However, we have a curious happening in the cosmos, because the eclipse is square the centaur Nessus.
In mythology, Nessus is a member of the rowdy Centaur clan. He was the ferryman at the Euenos river. Hercules arrives at the river and pays for his wife Deinara to ride to the other side. Upon reaching her destination, Nessus attempts to rape Deinara, and Hercules shoots him with an arrow tainted by the deadly Hydra’s poisonous blood. As he is dying, Nessus gives a vial of his blood to Deinara and tells her that it will keep Hercules faithful.
Of course, since this is a myth, you know what will happen. After a while, Deinara fears Hercules is being unfaithful, so she pours Nessus’ poisoned blood on her husband’s tunic. Hercules wears the tunic and dies. After his death, Zeus brings Hercules to Mount Olympus where he is honored for his heroic activities.
Since Sagittarius is about higher learning, knowledge, and philosophy (not to mention its image of the Centaur), I felt that including Nessus was necessary. In the horoscope, Nessus reflects poisoning, and since he is currently moving through Pisces, it’s collective poisoning that we are concerned with. Over the last few years, we have noticed how dangerous misinformation is and what it can do to the global community. If you are on a social media platform or visit news sites, you are exposed to it on the daily. In many ways, we are ‘poisoned’ by collective movements, many of people involved are true believers in what they are posting, but propaganda can be deadly and can poison ordinary (and even some unordinary) people and their outlook on life. I am hopeful that with this aspect being a separating square, much of this will begin to fade away, because we are encouraged to leave ‘group think’ (which can be equally poisonous) behind and focus on our big picture objectives. We need to take our ‘personal beliefs’ and take charge of our ‘personal worlds’, and start living our best lives, and leave the noise to others who wish to participate. Instead of being poisoned by the beliefs or statements of others, we need to be the cure.
Enjoy your new beginning!
Now, on with the forecast…

We start the week with a harmonious aspect between Mars and Neptune. Mars trine Neptune is the spiritual warrior. He fights in the name of compassion, empathy, and without judgment. It’s an excellent day to focus on what you can do to help those less fortunate than you. Since we are in the holiday season of good will towards your fellow man, being a force for good will help boost the morale of others and feed your spirit and soul.

There’s a lot of activity today with three major aspects – Mercury sextile Saturn, Venus sextile Neptune, and the Sun sextile Saturn.
Overall, Tuesday will be an interesting day, because Venus sextile Neptune would rather relax, smell the roses, and connect with loved ones, but duty calls.
During the early morning hours, Mercury sextiles Saturn in Aquarius. It’s an excellent day to work on tasks that need completion and get them off your to do list. Mercury sextile Saturn is very serious and tends to be steadfast and focused. So, any tasks that require precision and exactitude are recommended.
Later in the day, the Sun sextiles Saturn. The Sun sextile Saturn is an amazing aspect for career and professional advancement. Use this aspect to achieve the favor of supervisors and management, because you will be rewarded for a job well done.
Finally, this evening honor Venus sextile Neptune. Spend some time doing something you enjoy. If you are in a relationship, this is an auspicious day to take care of your partners needs. Otherwise, spiritual activities, the arts, and meditation are recommended.

The Moon moves into Scorpio and brings with it an intense undertone to the day. Your ordinary feelings may be felt more intensely, so stay on guard. This evening, the Moon forms a tough square to Saturn. You may be plagued with insecurities and self-doubt. Push away negative thoughts as they surface.
Thursday, December 2, 2021
The Moon continues to move through Scorpio, but makes easier aspects than yesterday. Throughout most of the day, the Moon trines Neptune and sextiles Venus. It’s a perfect day to do some self-care, relaxation, and pampering. A deep tissue massage or a mani and pedi would be an excellent way to work with this energy.

The Moon moves through joyful and spirited Sagittarius during the morning hours as she prepares to go into eclipse mode on Saturday. Sagittarius is a fun-loving sign, and it’s an excellent day to socialize and spend time with your friends and members of your tribe. Tonight is the perfect time to let your hair down and spend a night out on the town.
Saturday, December 4, 2021
We have our final eclipse of eclipse season with the New Moon (solar eclipse) in Sagittarius. The sign of Sagittarius is about the potentials and possibilities of a better future. Have you been pursuing your dreams, or have your ideals been overly influenced by others, and therefore, have you diminished your light? Have you not pursued your goals because of fear – either of failure or rejection? Now it’s time to break free and start living life on your terms. But be careful, solar eclipses are potent, and you should proceed slowly and methodically. The good news is that the result is living your best life!
Sunday, December 5, 2021
We end the week with the Moon moving into earthy Capricorn. It’s an excellent day to get out your checklist of duties and responsibilities and get it done. The Moon in Capricorn is the perfect Moon for holiday shopping, because it helps you restrict and avoid excessiveness.
See you next week!
