[1:48] Moon Report! The Full Moon at 04º51’ Gemini (Nov. 27, 1:16 am PST) finds the Sun and Mars together in early Sagittarius, opposing the Moon, with all three square Saturn in a T-square formation. The Sabian symbol for this Full Moon is 5 Gemini, A radical magazine. The symbol for the Sun is 5 Sagittarius, An old owl up a tree.

[3:44] The T-square is an energetic formation involving planets in three signs of the same modality (cardinal, fixed, or mutable). This one is in mutable signs, flexible and changeable, and the unoccupied mutable sign is Virgo.

[6:12] Gemini is the questioning moon, and its lighter quality offers a respite from the intensity that began with the Scorpio New Moon. Ask new questions and invite new input.

[6:38] This is the Full Moon in a Lunar Phase Family Cycle (LPFC) that began at the May 30, 2022 New Moon at 09º03’ Gemini. The First Quarter in this LPFC was on Feb. 27, 2023, and the Last Quarter is on August 26, 2024.

[8:04] Void-of-Course (VOC) Moon periods. On Nov. 28, the Moon in Gemini opposes Mercury, its planetary ruler (5:03 pm PST). It’s VOC for almost six hours, then enters Cancer (10:54 pm PDT). Are you making assumptions about what somebody else is thinking because you feel you know them so well? It’s still good to ask explicit questions and to offer information.

[9:43] On Dec. 1, the Moon in Cancer opposes Pluto (5:07 am PST). It’s VOC for about three hours, then enters Leo (8:00 am PST). See what would happen if you didn’t retreat from a moment’s hurt feelings.

[10:50] The Moon in Leeeeeoooo sextiles Venus on Dec. 3 (6:11 pm PST). It’s VOC for about an hour and a half, then enters Virgo (7:50 pm). Experiment with letting yourself be vulnerable in going after what you desire.

[11:59] On Nov. 27 (5:28 am PST), Mercury squares Neptune at 24º54’ Sagittarius-Pisces. Mercury is on the Sabian symbol 25 Sagittarius, A chubby boy on a hobby horse. This is an artistic combination, and also a reminder that strong opinions are fine, but are best with a dash of kindness, empathy, and willingness to try to see all sides.

[14:10] Venus opposes the North Node of the Moon on Nov. 29 (9:16 am PST) at 24º04’ Libra and Aries. Venus is on the Sabian symbol, 25 Libra, Information in the symbol of an autumn leaf.

[14:38] Venus opposing the Moon’s North Node means it’s conjoined the Moon’s South Node. Planets transiting over the South Node provide a catalyst for releasing what isn’t helping us move forward.

[14:59] In the symbol for Venus, the autumn leaf says nothing lasts forever, but we can be beautiful to the very end. Venus going over the South Node can also summon important people, if only in memory. Consider what you learned from that relationship that can help you move forward in a more positive way.

[17:17] Mercury enters Capricorn on Dec. 1 (6:31 am PST) for an extended stay. Mercury is retrograde Dec. 12, 2023-Jan. 1, 2024, and reenters Sagittarius between Dec. 22, 2023-Jan. 13, 2024, when it reenters Capricorn until Feb. 4, 2024.

[17:50] Mercury in pragmatic, linear, schedule driven Capricorn can turn all those Mercury in Sagittarius ideas into something real. Wait until after Jan. 13 to finalize your plans, schedules, and itinerary for 2024.

[19:37] Mercury sextiles Saturn on Dec. 2 (7:27 am PST) at 01°12’ Capricorn-Pisces. Question authority, but respectfully, and take responsibility for the words that you use.

[21:02] Venus squares Pluto on Dec. 3 (5:29 am PST) at 28°33’ Libra-Capricorn. Beauty and money, says Venus in Libra, are real power. Prepare for power struggles.
