The World Is Better for Your Presence
Whether or not you live in the U.S., I hope that you discovered many reasons to feel thankful this past weekend despite the ongoing pain and chaos in the news. While we all experience moments of grief and fear, there is also an incredible amount of beauty and kindness and love in this world; sometimes it takes special effort to redirect one’s attention to it, however.
Some of this week’s astrology is building toward aspects that may increase your sense of tension and frustration; specifically Mercury stationing retrograde and a Full Moon. Yet there are important mitigating factors along the way.
For example, beginning the week we have the Mercury-Saturn-Pholus-Galactic Core conjunction in late Sagittarius. This is the astrology that last week’s Astrology Diary highlighted. This is the aspect pattern that is urging you to remember you are an adult should you happen to meet someone whose parental posturing threatens to trigger you into reacting like a child. The Galactic Core is offering the message that you have the power to stand in your truth.

If Your Birthday is Nov. 27
(The Day of Electrifying Excitement) | Sagittarius Birthday Reading | All Other Signs
Identify the kinds of doubts that eat away at your confidence, and address them directly. Most people you know are still caught in the same fears they were five or 10 or 20 years ago. You are embarking on a major new phase of your life, and you can only go forward from a place of actual self-esteem. Be bold about challenging beliefs instilled in you by your family.
Written in the Planets
Contacts with the Galactic Core have a certain elusive quality: insights can be forgotten if not somehow documented. Mercury’s conjunction today could have a more substantial and lasting effect. For one thing, Saturn is nearby. For another, Mercury is slowing down: it will only continue for six days and a couple more degrees before stationing retrograde. It won’t reach the Galactic Core again until Jan. 8. If you feel like an inspiration is near but not yet connecting, give it time to come through in full color. You’re likely to find it worth the wait.
