Tangled Webs We Weave--New Moon in Sagittarius

We had better get used to hearing the word mutable since we're swimming through a season of planets transiting in mutable signs (Pisces, Virgo, Sagittarius, and Gemini). On December 11, the New Moon transits at 19 degrees Sagittarius and now we have the sun, moon, and Saturn in the sign of the fiery satyr. Pie in the sky or responsible idealism?

Will we laugh our way through this new moon phase? That wouldn't be a bad way to get us through the Mutable T-Cross tension when the moon and sun square Jupiter in Virgo and Chiron in Pisces. It's hard to laugh at the wounds that come up for us to heal. Jupiter in Virgo will have us exaggerating our faults or the faults we find in others. Chiron though asks us to have compassion for our wounds, after all we acquired them as helpless children so why be so hard on ourselves?

And if we can heal or at least accept those wounds, this leads us to a road of service of one kind or another. We look around and see more problems than solutions, but will we toss in the towel or will we cooperate with others? And what about working with diverse populations since Sagittarius often refers to people from other countries or ethnic groups or even cooperation between religions? So what if we don't share the same philosophy? Neptune and Chiron in Pisces (and Neptune finally breaking away from the exact square with Saturn) want us to merge into the cosmic soup. Who are we but a speck in the vast universe? Despite the moon, sun, and Saturn in Sagittarius, we're going to feel tiny. We're not only dealing with mutable signs that ask us to get our butts moving along our unique paths, but we're contending with large and spacious planets (Neptune, Jupiter) opposing forces.

We've joined the big league or at least we're on our way to acquiring our cosmic graduate degrees. We're on the road to mastership. How do I know this? Well, look at the planets involved with the oppositions and squares. Neptune, Jupiter, Saturn, Chiron, Uranus and Pluto play hardball with our souls and we can either whine about our circumstances or do as Joseph Campbell would advise and answer the call to a long and drawn out quest in which we return with the boon.

By the time this Sagittarius Moon arrives, we're living in the Saturn-Neptune fog not really knowing which way the wind is blowing or if there's wind at all. And what's this nonsense about time-space reality or your reality and my reality? What's real and what's illusion? This is how we feel as we immerse ourselves in the holiday season. And oh, what a holiday season it will be with the Saturn-Neptune exact square arriving just in time for the US Thanksgiving holiday. I can just see the vegan breaking into tear of compassion for all turkeys as he sits at the traditional family dinner. But then, maybe by this point, his mother latched onto tofu turkey and quinoa stuffing. I'm making light of some powerful transits occurring in November and December. It's a soul-crunchy time for all of us no matter what sign our sun falls in.

Normally, we set the intention to expand in some area of our life with the Sagittarius New Moon, but now when we set intentions Saturn asks us to gaze with jaundice eyes on our dreams. Neptune and Jupiter tell us that we can no longer manifest desires with selfish motives--what about the others, asks Neptune and Jupiter? And what's this business with the North Node in fussy Virgo? Yeah, like that's fun. But Virgo suns and moons, you get it don't you? Time to be of greater service.

Meanwhile, Mercury transits in sober Capricorn and Venus continues her travels in Scorpio and Mars now in Libra engages in cosmic warfare with Uranus and Pluto (Cardinal T-Cross). Didn't we have one of those Cardinal T-Crosses last December around the holidays? Anyway, we'll ride the tides like we always do and we'll evolve to the next level of spiritual understanding.

If all the Mutable and Cardinal transits leave you feeling confused or bemused, sign up for a reading. I'm offering Solar Return, Pediatric charts and Natal chart readings at this time. Read the tabs above for fees and services. And visit Metaphysics 4 Everyday Living.
