MOON MAGIC: Astrological Timing for Success – November 2011

Nov 09, 2011 01:00PM
A New World is on the horizon! During this Celtic New Year Nov 1-7 the pattern of the new world initiating in 2012 will be revealed to all who look within and honor the note they bring. As the outline of this new creation becomes clear, old world ways that impede its realization are highlighted for elimination / transformation. This is the role of Scorpio. As the month begins. Mercury and Venus appear together in the evening sky entering fiery Sagittarius in trine with revolutionary Uranus in Aries. Through the month they partner to preside over the death/rebirth of the king and global order of things. This transformation is catalyzed by a long term trine to Jupiter (king) from potent little planet Pluto, ruler of Scorpio. While Jupiter runs backwards (until Dec 25), the false king is exposed and old world shadows are brought to light to be transformed. Energy set free from old patterns breaking powers the new creation flowering through 2012.


The Celtic New Year celebration Samhain culminates Nov 7, the autumn power gate. This cosmic mid-Scorpio gate is symbolized by the Ace of Cups in Tarot and the Ace of Hearts in playing cards. All that would block hearts from fully opening comes before this gate to be cleared. Astral shadows are dispelled and love is born anew with the Nov 10 Tripuri Purnima Full Moon.  All is illuminated at the Nov 22 Gate of Inspiration and revolutionary new art and music flow from the Nov 25 Solar Eclipse. A New World begins!


Nov 1-3 (12:38 pm 11/2) – Time to Choose

1st Quarter Moon

This Moon is like a scythe cutting across the sky, it's a time to cut free from trappings of the past and affirm our purpose moving forward. Choices made are likely the right ones.


Nov 1-6 – Out with the Old, Open to the New

Going Out of the Signs

The best time to break addictions or eliminate attachments is when the Moon moves through signs down beyond vital organs from Sagittarius (thighs) to Pisces (feet). Now we can more easily let go outmoded patterns and eliminate toxins physical, emotional and psychic.


Nov 5 – 9:30 am - 7:57 pm – Imagine!

Moon at the Equator

November 7 – Happy New Year!

Hallowmas / Samhain / Celtic New Year

Hallowmas is one of 8 fire festivals celebrated at equinoxes, solstices and cross-quarter days - times when changes are more easily made in our inner and outer world. The Celts celebrated their New Year on Nov 7 when the Sun crosses the midpoint of Scorpio. The mid-Scorpio solar gate is the creative source of the year. The astral veil is thinnest and shadows of the past are revealed and transformed opening the way for the future to be.

Shadows that come before New Moon are cleared through deep breathing with attention to the light within. It’s time to put wishes on the air andto bring others to mind for healing.


Nov 22-23 (11:08 am– 11:08 am) – Open to Receive

Gate of Inspiration

Dark of Moon/New Moon

The day before New Moon until Sunset a day after is ideal for inner work to seed the new cycle, outer activity is favored after the crescent appears. The New Moon (1:10 am 11/25) is a cosmic spring that flows freely as we slow down. Here we can know what is and realize how to shape what is to be.


Nov 26-30 – Time to Sow

Crescent New Moon

It's time to bring forward what we wish to be realized. Meditation now opens doorways, wishes take wing and our prayers bring blessings for this Moon and the New Year to be.
