Episode timestamps:

00:30 – April and Jen are wearing their imaginary BSA cotton t-shirts as they celebrate two years podcasting together!

01:36 – Help-y, healthy, and bursting with love: If you’re reading show notes that are cut off, please know that we always upload full show notes to the episode webpage! And a reminder that Spotify listeners may need to re-follow if you’re not getting new episodes in your feed!

02:59 – WEEK ONE (Nov. 22-28) begins with Mercury busting into Sagittarius (Nov. 24 – Dec. 13) and we may struggle to put large concepts into words. Think big – but beware of making promises you can’t keep!

06:37 – This week’s Moonwatch segment is brought to you by our non-imaginary sponsor, The Witches Are Watching podcast! Find them wherever you listen!

09:10 – **MOONWATCH!** This week brings a Last Quarter Moon (Nov. 27) at 5.28 Virgo on the Sabian symbol, “A merry-go-round.” The Sun sits on sporty 6 Sag, “A game of cricket.” Try to find a balance between Virgo’s attention to detail and Sag’s big-picture ideas.

11:58 – Mercury joins the Sun at 7.10 Sagittarius (Nov. 28/29) in a superior conjunction. Beware of hearing only what you want to hear.

13:28 – WEEK TWO (Nov. 29 – Dec. 5) begins with Mars, at 20.24 Scorpio, trine Neptune in Pisces (Nov. 29). This could be a time to act on behalf of others, or on faith. It’s a good week to get a little extra rest if you can!

15:16 – The Sun, at 8.57 Sag, sextiles Saturn in Aquarius (Nov. 30). This indicates that perhaps a spirit of adventure will lead to opportunities for future success!

15:51 – Why are Sagittarius and Aquarius compatible? (And – oops! – Jen was so darn close (and yet slightly off) on the episode about the elements: Revisit Episode 36, A Mini-Class for the Dog Days: Elements & Modalities. And to learn more about the sextile aspect, lend your ears to Episode 16, Let’s Talk about Sextiles).

17:23 – Neptune turns direct at 20.24 Pisces (Dec. 1) after being retrograde since June 25. (And to find the webinar that Jackie Slevin did, check out NCGR’s website!) To hear more about Neptune turning direct, review our very first podcast, Episode 1, Sagittarius New Moon: Stars Over Thanksgiving!

20:00 – Here’s where to order a personalized Followed by a Moonshadow eclipse report!

20:56 – **MOONWATCH!** There is a New Moon Solar Eclipse at 12.22 Sagittarius (Dec. 3/4)! This is the last eclipse in the Gemini/Sag series until Oct. 2029, so this eclipse may have a “final exam” feel to it; this area of your chart has been getting attention.

23:58 – Previous eclipses at this point: June 2020, June 2012, Dec. 2002, June 1993, and Dec. 1983. Which houses and what planets are in your chart between 8°-16° of Gemini, Virgo, Sag, and Pisces? Does anything from those times echo now? (And do visit Episode 5, Unboxing Eclipses if your ears want more!)

25:34 – Could this Sag New Moon Eclipse be a good time to look ahead to 2022? Can it help set us up in a big-picture way?
