A LAST QUARTER Moon occurs on Friday, November 14, 2014, at 10:15 AM EST.

On Friday morning, the Last Quarter Moon is exact, when the Sun in Scorpio squares the Moon in Leo. The Last Quarter Moon phase points to some sort of crisis of consciousness. After basking in the awareness symbolized by the full light of the Moon at the time of last week's Full Moon, we disperse our knowledge and come to a point when we need to sort out what works for us--and what doesn't--in preparation for next week's New Moon, when something new is born once again. This is not the best time to start a major project, as the decreasing light of the Moon symbolizes a descent into unconsciousness. It's time to begin finishing up the details of that which was conceived at the last New Moon on October 23rd. What revelations did you have last week? What did they mean for you? What can be done now?

This phase of the Moon occurs at 22 degrees and 10 minutes of Leo square the Sun at 22 degrees and 10 minutes of Scorpio, affecting people born with personal planets and points at approximately 20 to 24 degrees of the Fixed signs (Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, and Aquarius) most significantly.

(Times are Eastern)


The Sun is in Scorpio; Mercury is in Scorpio; Venus is in Scorpio; Mars is in Capricorn.

The Sun is in Scorpio from October 23-November 22. The guiding principle of Scorpio is "I desire". Scorpio is the sign of depth, intimacy, and extremes of feeling. Superficiality simply will not do with the Sun in Scorpio. We have the desire to get to the bottom of matters. Mediocrity does not satisfy either. All that is hidden, taboo, secret, or suppressed interests us. In Libra, we strived towards equality and fairness. Scorpio, however, instinctively believes that life simply isn't fair. Scorpio's energy is provocative, usually in a quiet way, as well as passionate, strong-willed, and intense. It can be an immensely healing and transformative energy. Jealousy, vindictiveness, beating a dead horse, and manipulative are some of the more negative expressions of Scorpio.

Mercury is in Scorpio from November 8-27. When Mercury is in Scorpio, our thoughts and communications are more probing and intense. While Mercury in Libra urged us to find balance and to arrive at fair solutions, Mercury in Scorpio instinctively knows that life simply isn't fair. Mercury in Scorpio seeks truths in all that is hidden and undercover. We tend to probe, observe, and focus our thoughts under this influence. Looking for motivations--the more deeply buried the better--satisfies an intellectual need now. Our thoughts are profound. We throw away superficial manners of communicating in favor of deep conversations. Scorpio is extremely sharp, profound, and analytical. Thinking is inclined to be one-track minded, focused, and even obsessive.

Venus is in Scorpio October 23-November 16. Deeply passionate relations are the focus with Venus in Scorpio. Superficial flirtations and contacts do not satisfy now, as we yearn for "body and soul" contact with someone special--contact that breaks the taboos, that is extreme and intense, and that is unforgettable. This is a highly emotional position for Venus. It is a passionate, sensual, and intense energy. Our relationships are immensely important to us, and we may even feel that they consume us. In fact, we tend to want to be consumed by them! Our drive is toward intense closeness, but blind faith in our partners is extremely hard for us now. Fears of being too vulnerable or of giving up our own power to others are strong. Scorpio is an "all or nothing" energy, and relationships tend to be somewhat of a rollercoaster ride as a result. Disdain for mediocrity and superficiality can compel us to create crises in order to feel alive and vital.

Mars is in Capricorn from October 26-December 4. Mars in Capricorn is deliberate, persistent energy. We consider the future and the consequences before taking action during this cycle. Our energy is reliable and faithful. We are slow to anger, but can be quite cold if we are frustrated. The shadow side of Mars in Capricorn is rigidity.

Saturn entered Scorpio on October 5, 2012 and will transit the sign until 2015. Read about Saturn's transit through Scorpio here.

Jupiter entered Leo on July 16th, where it will transit until August 11th, 2015. Read about Jupiter's transit through Leo here.

Uranus entered Aries on March 11th, 2011. The urge to start fresh, to break free from restrictive attitudes or circumstances, to totally redesign an area of our lives (or even our personalities), and to gain freedom through independence is strong with Uranus in Aries.


Romance & Relationships

Venus is in Scorpio from October 23-November 16. Deeply passionate relations are the focus with Venus in Scorpio. Superficial flirtations and contacts do not satisfy now, as we yearn for "body and soul" contact with someone special--contact that breaks the taboos, that is extreme and intense, and that is unforgettable. This is a highly emotional position for Venus. It is a passionate, sensual, and intense energy. Our relationships are immensely important to us, and we may even feel that they consume us. In fact, we tend to want to be consumed by them! Our drive is toward intense closeness, but blind faith in our partners is extremely hard for us now. Fears of being too vulnerable or of giving up our own power to others are strong. Scorpio is an "all or nothing" energy, and relationships tend to be somewhat of a rollercoaster ride as a result. Disdain for mediocrity and superficiality can compel us to create crises in order to feel alive and vital. If a relationship becomes too settled or predictable, we may crave more intensity and catalytic experience. Jealousies, fears of betrayal, and power games are the shadow side of Venus in Scorpio. We may easily become obsessed with a fear that our partners might be betraying us, or that they are not as consumed and dedicated to the relationship as us. This can lead us to try to uncover the "truth", reading too many negative possibilities in our partners' actions and words.
 

This week: On Sunday, restlessness with our relationships can be stirred, and we might search for more meaning. However, we might go a little too far, expect too much, and speak too soon in the process. Venus aligns with Saturn on Wednesday and semi-squares Pluto on Thursday. There can be a reality to face with our feelings and in our relationships. Power struggles, frustration, and manipulation can emerge. The need to adjust our expectations becomes obvious.

Venus, the Goddess of Love: Highlights in the Coming Week:


Venus in Scorpio October 23-November 16. This is way beyond love, all the way to obsession - that's the nature of the cycle that now takes hold in your life. We're not talking just lukewarm WANT here; we're talking red-hot GOT TO HAVE! Passion, jealousy, possession: these are the kinds of experiences that can flow from the intensity that courses through you at one level or another now - voracious.
Venus parallel Saturn November 7-8. We may express our affection sparingly, but also responsibly and in practical ways. Relationships begun under this influence often feel burdensome over time, but they may last longer than most.
Venus square Jupiter November 9. We experience a strong desire for more pleasure in our lives, which can be excessive. Take care not to overstate your feelings or to set up unrealistic expectations in your partnerships. As well, take what your partner says with a grain of salt. There is no malicious intent involved, but feelings of elation can cloud our judgment, and we can promise more than we can deliver.
Venus conjunct Saturn November 12. Affections stabilize and mature. Relationships are stabilized and steady, although feelings are expressed reservedly, formally, or sparingly. An air of formality is brought to personal and social relationships. A new sense of realism in existing partnerships comes now. A sense of duty may lead us to sacrifice a personal pleasure for a cause or for a loved one; thus we may have to abstain from personal gratification for the time being. Problems in personal relationships that have been swept under the carpet may surface now, and we are ready to face them. Dissatisfaction with loved ones becomes more glaring. Renewed ties to old friends or lovers are possible, or a new sense of responsibility in existing relationships.
Venus semi-square Pluto November 13. Tendencies to look for something wrong in a relationship. Jealousy raises its ugly head.
Venus sesquiquadrate Uranus November 14-15. Uncertainty about the desire to be close to someone. Freedom versus closeness. A desire to experiment in the romance department may be fleeting and ultimately unsatisfying or frustrating.
Venus semi-square Mars November 17-18. Tensions in relationships. Attempting to satisfy romantic needs and assertive/sexual needs simultaneously can be challenging.


The Moon & Timing

The Void of Course Moon is the period of time after the Moon has made its last aspect in one sign until the Moon enters a new sign. During Void of Course Moon periods, it is generally wise to stick to routine rather than to begin new projects. The last aspect the Moon makes before changing signs is indicated here, and is indicative of the "outcome" of the matter (whether that is a new project begun before the void period, or the answer to a question in Horary Astrology). Void of Course in Horary Astrology: If you were asking a question and making a chart for the answer, as you do in Horary astrology, it is said that since the Moon is not looking forward to any more aspects in this sign, you would have to say that the answer is not forthcoming; any questions asked at this time would not come to pass. The Moon being Void is one of the Strictures against Judgment in Horary Astrology. 
 

The Void-of-Course Moon this Week:

Void-of-course Moon on Sunday, November 9th, from 11:23 AM EST, with the Moon's last aspect before changing signs (a sextile to Jupiter), until the Moon enters Cancer the next day, Monday, November 10th, at 3:39 AM EST.

VOC Moon on Wednesday, November 12th, from 4:18 AM EST, with the Moon's last aspect before changing signs (a trine to Saturn), until the Moon enters Leo at 1:45 PM EST.

VOC Moon on Friday, November 14th, from 9:54 PM EST, with the Moon's last aspect before changing signs (a square to Venus), until the Moon enters Virgo the next day, Saturday, November 15th, at 2:09 AM EST.

This Week's Aspects

VenussquareJupiter Venus square Jupiter. Feelings of elation in love or with regards to the pleasures of life can lead us to overdo, overindulge, overspend, and overstate our feelings. Avoid hasty (or haughty!) decisions. We might take great strides to get noticed. Avoid impulsive buying. We may also feel lazy and we are inclined to procrastinate.

conjunct Mars conjunct Pluto. This is a powerful aspect that helps us to focus on our goals, to take decisive action, and to go after what we want. We won't take "no" for an answer. We might totally revise something, or we could be bent on getting rid of something in our lives in order to move forward. We might be too forceful or willful just now. We should also watch for overdoing to the point of exhaustion. This can be a compulsive time when power struggles are more likely. On the other hand, it can be a time when we enjoy a strong sense of purposefulness.

MercurytrineNeptune Mercury trine Neptune. Imagination and intuition run high, and are involved in decisions made today. We are in the right place at the right time. We may easily sense the thoughts and feelings of others. We express ourselves with subtle flair. Favors photography, the arts, poetry, fiction, spirituality, advertising, and promotion.

MarssextileChiron Mars sextile Chiron. We may have the opportunity to take the lead, or to take action, regarding matters that lead to healing, cleansing, or teaching now. We can feel a sense of mission. There is likely to be a feeling of fearlessness when it comes to addressing problem areas, and self-confidence as well. There is a drive to take positive action, usually to defend or help others (or ourselves). It's a strong period for cooperation and purposeful activity.

Venusconjunct Venus conjunct Saturn. Affections stabilize and mature. Relationships are stabilized and steady, although feelings are expressed reservedly, formally, or sparingly. An air of formality is brought to personal and social relationships. A new sense of realism in existing partnerships comes now. A sense of duty may lead us to sacrifice a personal pleasure for a cause or for a loved one; or we may have to abstain from personal gratification for the time being. Financial discipline, realism, and maturity are possible now. We are more likely to be conservative when it comes to spending. Sound judgment may be exercised. Problems in personal relationships that have been swept under the carpet may surface now, and we are ready to face them. Dissatisfaction with loved ones becomes more glaring. Support from older people or authority figures may come by way of solid advice or tangible help. Renewed ties to old friends are possible, or a new sense of responsibility in existing friendships.

MarssquareUranus Mars square Uranus. We have a tendency to take risks, to feel restless, and to act on sudden impulses without considering consequences. We assert our wills and individuality powerfully, and we are willing to fight for freedom. We might feel rebellious in the face of rules and regulations, particularly those we might feel are outdated, or anything that requires us to conform. There may be changes in work schedules, or life's circumstances could challenge us in such a way that we need to change our goals or actions. Energy is stop and go, and it can be hard to focus on only one activity.

SunsquareJupiter Sun square Jupiter. We may feel vague restlessness and discontent with life as it is. We want more, but perhaps too much. Overestimation and exaggeration. Elevated moods, but unstable ones, as they may not be based on reality. Channeled well, this energy can represent creative power.

Pluto Venus semi-square Pluto. This influence can point to some underlying tensions in social interactions (looking for an ulterior motive or an agenda, suspiciousness) and relationships (possible jealousies). Passions run high and hot, but there's a hidden agenda. Feelings of jealousy and possessiveness run so close to the surface that others can almost feel the heat, and they are in direct proportion to our fear of losing something or someone dear to us. Avoid starting a new relationship at this time, because it can be characterized by these energies. Sometimes, this transit correlates with unreciprocated feelings in love or romantic disappointment. Often, financial matters come to the fore. Manipulation can color relationships now. Avoid power plays with friends and lovers.

VenusSesquiquadrateUranus Venus sesquiquadrate Uranus. Unusual attractions (to people and things) can have us acting on a whim. We may deal with freedom versus closeness issues in our relationships. Relationships or finances can be unpredictable. Changes now can create fresh opportunities, however, that can add to our sense of joy and freedom.

(as featured on our site's main page and in our Daily Trends Calendar)

NOVEMBER 9
The Moon transits Gemini again today. Focus is on our mental interests, conversations, and connections. A Venus-Jupiter square can stimulate feelings of elation in our social life, and can increase our hunger for pleasure, but it can also stimulate an over-the-top approach. We are inclined to overdo, overindulge, overspend, and overstate our feelings. Avoid hasty and haughty decisions/actions as well as impulsive purchases. This is not the best time for getting work done, as we are inclined to procrastinate.

A void of course Moon occurs from 11:23 AM EST, with the Moon's last aspect before changing signs (a sextile to Jupiter), until the Moon enters Cancer tomorrow, Monday, November 10th, at 3:39 AM EST.

NOVEMBER 10
The Moon finishes its transit of Gemini at 3:39 AM EST, when it enters Cancer. Mars aligns with Pluto today. We can experience strong desires to take action on a matter today, but impatience and pushiness could trip us up if we are not careful. We should also watch for buried resentments and angers driving our actions and the tendency to ignore reason. However, well channeled, this energy can bring increased focus and motivation. This is a powerful aspect that helps us to focus on our goals, to take decisive action, and to go after what we want. We won't take "no" for an answer. We might totally revise something, or we could be bent on getting rid of something in our lives in order to move forward. We might be too forceful or willful, however. We should also watch for overdoing to the point of exhaustion. This can be a compulsive time when power struggles are more likely. We can be tested to the limits. Something may need to be eliminated in order to start anew. Positively, it can be a time when we enjoy a strong sense of purposefulness, even if we might have to give something up in the process.

The Moon ends its void period at 3:39 AM EST, when it enters Cancer.

NOVEMBER 11
Mercury's trine to Neptune today can help ease some of the tension we've been experiencing recently. Imagination and intuition run high, and are involved in decisions made today. We could find ourselves in the right place at the right time, or receive the information we need. We may easily sense the thoughts and feelings of others, and we might express ourselves with subtle flair. This energy favors photography, the arts, poetry, fiction, spirituality, advertising, and promotion. Furthering the watery, intuitive feel is the Moon in Cancer, which also harmonizes with the Scorpio Sun this afternoon, helping to open the emotional/spiritual pipeline and improving understanding.

NOVEMBER 12
Venus aligns with Saturn in the sign of Scorpio today, and we may be facing reality about our finances or a love/social matter. This influence can bring a strong sense of responsibility or realism to our relationships. Problems in a relationship can make themselves known now. A commitment may be made or there can be a "test" to an existing commitment. However, Mars squares Uranus today - an entirely different energy. Under this influence, we can be tempted to take risks or to act on sudden impulses without considering consequences. We might feel rebellious in the face of rules and regulations, particularly those we might feel are outdated, or anything that requires us to conform. There may be changes in work schedules, or life's circumstances could challenge us in such a way that we need to redirect our energy or alter our goals. Energy is stop and go, and it can be hard to focus on only one activity. Mars also sextiles Chiron helping us to learn from our experiences and gain a stronger sense of purpose. There can be a drive to take positive action, likely to defend or help others (or ourselves). The Moon continues its transit of Cancer until 1:45 PM EST, when it enters Leo.

A void of course Moon occurs from 4:18 AM EST, with the Moon's last aspect before changing signs (a trine to Saturn), until the Moon enters Leo at 1:45 PM EST.

NOVEMBER 13
The Sun squares Jupiter today, and while this can stimulate big, optimistic thinking and elevated moods, this state of mind is a little fragile as it may be overblown and unrealistic. We could feel vague restlessness and discontent with life as it is. We want more, but perhaps too much. In an effort to attach more meaning to our lives, we might come up with new ideas and possible paths, but we could also overestimate our capabilities. Circumstances are such today that we learn that bigger isn't necessarily better. With a Venus-Pluto semi-square, there can be some underlying tensions in social interactions. While the Sun-Jupiter influence tends to increase our optimism and faith (possibly too much), Venus-Pluto can stimulate suspicion. Judgment can be off today as a result. The Moon is in Leo all day.

NOVEMBER 14
The Last Quarter Moon is exact this morning at 10:15 AM EST, when the Sun in Scorpio squares the Moon in Leo. The Last Quarter Moon phase points to some sort of crisis of consciousness. After basking in the awareness symbolized by the full light of the Moon at the time of last week's Full Moon, we disperse our knowledge and come to a point when we need to sort out what works for us--and what doesn't--in preparation for next week's New Moon, when something new is born once again. This is not the best time to start a major project, as the decreasing light of the Moon symbolizes a descent into unconsciousness. It's time to begin finishing up the details of that which was conceived at the last New Moon on October 23rd. People can be friendly today, but require their freedom as Venus and Uranus approach a dynamic aspect, exact early tomorrow. Relationships or finances can be unpredictable. Changes now can create fresh opportunities, however, that can add to our sense of joy and freedom. 

A void of course Moon occurs from 9:54 PM EST, with the Moon's last aspect before changing signs (a square to Venus), until the Moon enters Virgo tomorrow, Saturday, November 15th, at 2:09 AM EST.

NOVEMBER 15
The Moon finishes its transit of Leo at 2:09 AM EST, when it enters Virgo. With the Moon in Virgo, we crave more organization. However, strong Neptune energy today, we may have a hard time focusing long enough to really tackle a task. Neptune, the planet of illusion, is stationary direct today. Now and in the coming few weeks, many of the illusions we have been holding onto emerge, confusing situations become clearer, and our creativity soars, or at least, we are more inclined to apply our creativity in the real world. Instead of thinking of this period as a time of disillusionment, we can see it as a time of illumination--when we increasingly see the light and become clearer, sharper, and more effective in the real world. We have more faith in our own dreams and visions, in others, and in belief systems. We begin to seek inspiration from external sources.

The Moon ends its void period at 2:09 AM EST, when it enters Virgo.

Moon Signs This Week:
 

When the Moon is in Gemini

MoonGeminiOur basic instinct is to communicate, think, and learn under the influence of Moon in Gemini. We are motivated by a desire for variety and by an instinctive curiosity. The Moon in Gemini is light-hearted, breezy, and curious, but it can also be restless and fickle.

The Moon in Gemini generally favors the following activities: Mental and communicative actions, and more than one activity at once. Reading, learning, letters and emails, errands, writing, teaching, making connections, short trips.

When the Moon is in Cancer

MoonCancerThe restlessness of the Gemini Moon gives way to an instinctive need for peace and quiet. A feeling of belonging and safety is what motivates us under this influence. The Moon feels right at home in the sign of Cancer, as it rules the sign. This Moon position has much healing potential. Although insular by nature, our feelings run deep, making it an ideal time to get in touch with what motivates us.

The Moon in Cancer generally favors the following activities: Domestic activities, those that involve awareness of personal needs. Home decor, family get-togethers.

When the Moon is in Leo

MoonLeoThe Moon in Leo speaks to our "inner child". It's a warm, generous, whole-heartedly loving position. Pride keeps us from pettiness, but it can also prevent us from opening up and revealing how we are truly feeling. We are on stage, our feelings are grand, and we appreciate some drama in our lives. We are easily threatened by anything that seems to be impersonal. This is a time when we seek attention--when we want to stand out for our special qualities. It's a strong time for romance and any creative activity as well.

The Moon in Leo generally favors the following activities: Creative activities, activities involving children, generous undertakings, undertakings in which personal recognition is desired, and risk-taking.

When the Moon is in Virgo

MoonVirgoWe instinctually gravitate towards practical activities under the influence of a Virgo Moon. In an urge to set things right, we might easily find ourselves re-organizing and rethinking plans. Emotional satisfaction comes from solving problems, making order out of confusion, and helping others. Health matters might come into focus. We notice the smaller parts that make up the whole, and instead of letting nagging details bother us, we might work on ironing them out so that we can feel more confident moving ahead.  

The Moon in Virgo generally favors the following activities: Mental pursuits, work activities, services, and routines. Activities that would benefit from tending to details.

When the Moon is in...Transits of the Moon through the Signs.

This Week's Planetary Positions By Sign (General Trends):

Sun in Scorpio Who owes what, who owns what, and who decides these things: these are some of the major issues for you at the dawn of the cycle that now begins in your life. The only thing we really own is our consciousness; the only master who is never overthrown is oneself. These are lessons best learned early in this cycle. Master them, and you master everything. Dodge these issues, and the great strength that could be yours will remain just out of reach. Understanding inner motivations, seeing through to the core: that's your real path of power and enlightenment now.

Mercury in Scorpio A pronounced curiosity about taboos and mysteries plays a greater part in your life now. Your mind is on cutting through the nonessentials and penetrating to the core is where your mind is at now; you want to know who (or what) pulls the strings. Sex, taxes, investments, and others of life's most compelling phenomena may captivate your interest more than ever before.

Venus in Scorpio This is way beyond love, all the way to obsession - that's the nature of the cycle that now takes hold in your life. We're not talking just lukewarm WANT here; we're talking red-hot GOT TO HAVE! Passion, jealousy, possession: these are the kinds of experiences that can flow from the intensity that courses through you at one level or another now - voracious.

Mars in Capricorn With this new cycle taking hold in your life now, taking charge and being in control become more important issues for you. You want to get things organized, and you have the initiative to do it. This is a time of ambition and responsibility, a time to keep your cool and pace yourself. Working hard is smart, but working smart is better.

Jupiter in Leo High drama, big romance, a creative bonanza: this is the stuff dreams are made of now. The world is your stage, the spotlight is your goal, and the love and appreciation of others is the air you breathe. Children, lovers, admirers: these are the people who figure large in your life as this cycle progresses. A willingness to gamble on the future.

Saturn in Scorpio This new cycle signals a need to recognize that there are powers beyond your control, that things are not what they seem on the surface. Trying to stay in control and on top only sets you up for a fall. There is a need for the resources of others. Failure to recognize this and deal with it can stop you in your tracks.

Uranus in Aries
A clean break with the past in some respects is signaled by the cycle you have just begun. What YOU need, YOUR freedom and independence, shattering old molds: these are the things that energize you and take priority in your life. Uniqueness and originality set you apart.

Neptune in Pisces Things spiritual and psychic take the driver's seat of your imagination as you begin a new cycle. The fine arts and all manner of fantasies assume a larger-than-life importance. Surrendering to fate, karma, and other powers greater than merely mortal may be seen as the ultimate liberation. If all is maya (illusion), what is the reality that gives rise to the world of appearances?

Pluto in Capricorn As this new phase dawns for you, the pursuit of social/political power and status has a way of seeming necessary and inevitable - and let nothing stand in its way. It starts out small, but has bigger consequences than you'd think. Ambition, responsibility, a place for everyone and everyone in their place...
