November 25, 2015
Mercury forms a sextile with Mars this morning, and
we are especially alert, energetic, and enthusiastic; or, we may quickly get to
the point or to a decision/conclusion. We find it rather easy to "walk the talk"
and to put ideas into motion. We
are productive and take "busy-ness" in stride. The Moon enters Gemini
shortly after midday, and then reaches full at 5:44 PM EST. This Full Moon in
Gemini brings out our curiosity and stimulates our need to communicate and
connect. The Gemini-Sagittarius polarity is a mental axis, where Gemini
represents the "lower mind" and Sagittarius represents the "higher mind". A
Gemini Moon encourages us to think logically, while Sagittarius persuades us to
think in a broader manner. Sagittarius
symbolizes the quest for meaning and ideas that expand upon the
here and now. Gemini is quite comfortable in their
immediate environment or neighborhood, while Sagittarius
stimulates us to venture beyond. Neglecting either end of the
axis will surely backfire on us. Ideally, a balance should be
found between the two energies, and this is what the Full Moon
invites us to do. This Full Moon is about communication,
attitude, and our sense of adventure. Something has been
building inside of us, and now is the time when the energy of
the cosmos fairly demands that we let it out. Over the next
while, we will discover what this means for us. For now, we
can't sit on our feelings. We need to express them. With the Moon full and bright
in the sky, symbolic "illumination" occurs in our own lives.
However, these feelings and revelations are emotional ones, as
there is a sense of emotions bursting forth into our
consciousness. It's time to express ourselves, and to let things
out of our systems. Of course, we might want to exercise some
care while doing so, knowing that what is coming out of us is
not particularly rational as yet. With the Sun aligned with
Saturn and Mercury around the time of the Full Moon, this can be an
especially vocal and idea-filled time, particularly on practical
levels. A square to Neptune suggests some struggle with finding
a meaning or purpose to what we're doing.
The first three weeks of the month features both the Sun and Mercury at the top of your solar chart, dear Aquarius, and you'll be in a great position to look after the major structures in your life. This is a time to give extra attention to career, long-term goals, rules, responsibilities, and performance. It can also be a time of greater visibility with the public or in your professional life. Even people unrelated to your career might seem to hold you a little more accountable for your actions (or lack of action).
As such, this is a time to show off what you can do. It's also a strong time for reminding yourself of long-term plans as well as the rules of the road. Particularly because Saturn is heading towards a square with Neptune, it's important to get your priorities clear in your mind.
An especially strong time for getting important structures into place is the 10-13. This is also a good period for career advancement and connecting with people who help you to feel more confident about reaching your goals.
The first week of November is also good for making connections. It's a time for enlivening your intimate life, and also for getting a better sense of what you can count on in terms of monetary and emotional support, whether this is through a partner or if it's about subsidies, loans, refunds, and the like. Counseling work can be beneficial now. It can also be a rich time for understanding yourself or an intimate partner better. Desires that have been buried or left unacknowledged can emerge now. Combining your resources or talents with someone can be beneficial for reaching a goal.
Venus and Mars move into your adventure sector and into harmony with your sign on the 8th and 12th, respectively. These influences can boost your spirits and bring more spontaneity into your love life, communications, and everyday experiences. It can also be a super time for promotional or marketing efforts.
Mercury and the Sun move into your friendship sector on the 20th and 22nd, turning your attention to enjoyment, friends, team work, and networking. You'll also be more inclined to entertain long-term happiness goals now.
However, the last week of the month is definitely the trickier period of November to navigate. Saturn and Neptune connect via a challenging square aspect, introducing a theme that will recur throughout the first three quarters of 2015. This can play out in a number of ways. Some of you could be feeling taken advantage of, or that your values are clashing with friends or group associations. There can be a need to identify areas of waste or neglect, particularly with money and personal possessions, and tidy these things up. You might discover that a plan doesn't seem quite as viable on a financial level. Lending and borrowing to and from friends is generally considered tricky, but can be especially so for you now. This applies not only to money, but also time and energy. Friendships or causes can drain you at times if you are giving too much while ignoring your own needs. Protect your resources and avoid avoidance! Problems won't go away if you pretend they don't exist.
The Full Moon on the 25th can bring affections and creativity to full bloom. The route to fulfillment may not be immediately apparent, but the first step is acknowledging what you're seeking.
2015 is likely to be significant, dear Aquarius, with less direct pressure on
you to perform, easier schedules, and wonderful support from others. In an
unusual turn of events, there are two New Moons in your sign this year - one in
the very first degree of Aquarius on January 20th, and another in the final
degree of Aquarius on February 18th. This brings powerful energy for both
beginnings and endings that launch you on a new and improved path. Mercury
retrogrades in your sign for much of this time, from January 21-February 11, and
this can be an important time to work on your image - what you're projecting to
others. You may look back to a time when you were received especially well, and
draw lessons from that in order to move forward in the best possible way. With
Jupiter in relationship sectors this year, and Saturn now bringing heavier
energy to a sector of your solar chart that is very much connected to your sign,
in some ways, you may seem a little less like yourself in 2015. You'll still
have chances to show your naturally independent self, but there is certainly a
different energy with you this year with more emphasis on deeper, more
meaningful relationships with others and some pulling back from team or group
Benefits come from partnering up this year. One-on-one relationships tend to
be mutually beneficial in 2015. From April to June especially, there could be a
partnership opportunity through a group or team effort, or through a friend. You
are very much valued for your mind, unique perspective, and ability to pick up
on information that others overlook. There can be continued busy-ness and activity with
communications - learning, writing, public speaking, and new interests. You seek
out, and find, stimulating educational experiences. February and March are the
strongest months of the year for finances. Powerful and creative new ideas and
opportunities can arise for you now. April's eclipse may bring surprise learning
or travel opportunities, or could stimulate a restless need for more meaning,
experience, and excitement in your life. Romantic energy seems strongest in
June, particularly after the New Moon mid-month, but something out of the
ordinary on this front could begin in the last weeks of April. The summer can
bring the return of a previous condition in terms of larger life plans and goals
or career, and it's time to put this problem or situation to rest. Some of you
will be starting a brand new career or job, and dealing with all of the
responsibilities that go hand in hand with this. If you need
the courage and will to start or improve a health and fitness program or to look
for a new job, you'll discover it in the last week of June until mid-July.
There can be the need to look backwards before moving forward during
Venus' retrograde from July 25-September 6, particularly when it comes to a
partnership. The August 14th New Moon provides you with powerful motivation to
do so. For some, a past relationship can figure strongly now.
A new trend emerging this year revolves around finances. While support from
others, including banks, is strong, there can also be a drive for more financial
independence. Even so, combining your own resources and talents with a partner
may improve your financial outlook. A new influence that begins in August and
runs until September 2016 brings joy to your intimate world. This cycle may only
seem to rev up its engines late September and October. You're more inclined to
look within and enjoy the process, and also to share yourself with someone
special. Intimacy with yourself and/or with someone else can deepen. Your
private world can be compelling. Support from others seems more readily
available than usual. The last few months of 2015, and the first eight months of
2016, are also strong for career. The pressure you've been feeling to succeed
and perform has lifted, and this frees you up to more readily enjoy taking on
challenges and responsibilities. Aquarians do perform best when nobody's trying
to force them to do so, and this is the kind of energy you'll be experiencing.
Working more on your own terms is a theme now, and it can improve your overall
state of mind. There is also less emphasis on the team and more on partnership.
You could experience some disheartening moments with friends or colleagues,
however. Friendships, team work, or causes can drain you at times if you are
giving too much while ignoring your own needs. Ultimately, though, you're moving
towards discovering lasting, true friendships and alliances, as well as causes
that truly mean something to you.
Close relationships are big headlines for you this year, Aquarius, with
Jupiter moving through your partnership and then intimacy sector. This is about
seeking out and finding joy in your closest relationships and getting in deeper
touch with your needs. People help you during this period. You may be less
independent than usual, but this is can be a wonderful thing, as you opening up
to others' involvement in your life.
Juno has been in your partnership sector since October 2014, and will
continue to transit this zone of your solar chart until the end of June, 2015.
From December 2014 to mid-March 2015, Juno is retrograde here. Mercury, your
romance sector ruler, ends its shadow period on March 3rd. As such, March can
see the beginnings of easier energy in your love life. There is a craving for a
true partnership of equals, and this continues, perhaps motivating some of you
to find it. Jupiter in your partnership sector moves direct on April 8th,
pushing things forward further. All of this suggests a real focus on
relationships as the year begins, but it's not until March and April before
things seem to get started in the real world.
Because your romance sector ruler is Mercury, your close relationships are
particularly vulnerable to Mercury's retrograde periods. These are periods
when love could be on the stagnant side, a lover or love interest is reflective, there are
communication problems, or when relationships are confusing.
However, these are also important periods for slowing down and looking at things
in new ways. Love is not only about moving forward and high energy - there are
times when we need to reflect and re-imagine. Mercury's retrogrades in 2015
occur from January 21-February 11, May 18-June 11, and September 17-October 9. There is also a Mercury retrograde period in January
2016, from January 5-25. The period from May 18-June 11 occurs in your romance
sector, so this is a particularly love-related cycle. It's a good time for slowing down, reviewing your situation, and
gaining a new perspective on problem areas.

an Aries with a Leo Ascendant, read the forecast for both
Aries and Leo.
