For Your Viewing Pleasure


The November Full Moon is on November 17, 2013 at 8:15 AM in Denver, Colorado.
The Sun-Moon axis is at 25 degrees and 26 minutes of Scorpio and Taurus. See horoscope.      

(The full moon is at 7:15AM in California, 10:15AM in New York, 4:15PM in Paris France, 7:15PM in Moscow Russia, 8:45PM in Mumbai India, 11:15PM in Shanghai China, and 2:15AM on Nov 18 in Melbourne Australia)

Chickens coming home to roost.

The energetic predominance in this month's full moon horoscope is earth and water, with just a touch of fire. The Sun leads the watery group of planets, and the Moon leads the earth group. Emotional sensitivity and practicality rule the day.

Three major aspect patterns exist in the full moon horoscope. The technical descriptions and their interpretations are given below.

Aspect pattern: Neptune-Chiron trine North Node, Neptune square Sun-Moon (full moon), Neptune septile Uranus (Aries), Neptune septile Pluto-Venus(Capricorn)

Neptune-Chiron trine North Node
: what brings deeper meaning and deeper stability to the structures in our lives in ways that serve humanity and mass consciousness and our long-term growth and evolution? What wounds need to be addressed and healed to bring us to a more stable, mature, integrated level of functioning? Long term efforts may be starting at this full moon for addressing these questions.

Uranus Septile Neptune: divine purpose, addition of heat and action, new important initiatives stir our imaginative creativity into action.

Aspect pattern: Moon trine Mars, Moon semisquare Uranus (Aries), Moon oppose Sun, Moon square Neptune-Chiron, Moon sesquiquadrate Pluto-Venus

Efforts are taken to improve the health of the body and of close relationships. Steps are being taken to heal unbalanced work environments, or to find new work. Surprising revelations or announcements necessitate changes and new efforts in the work life and in our personal health care. Difficult female issues drive active personal involvement.

Aspect pattern: Sun trine Jupiter, Sun conjunct Saturn (saturn trine jupiter), Sun sesquiquadrate Uranus, Sun semisquare Pluto-Venus, Sun square Neptune, Sun opposes Moon (full moon)(jupiter sextile mars)

Optimism reigns even in the midst of troubles; Maybe this is personal optimism, maybe this means we're surrounded by others who encourage us to be optimistic. It's relatively easier to take actions that are personally supportive, that are good for us. Our optimism is weighted by good judgment which enables us to make grounded and intelligent choices. External needs inspire good decision-making on our parts. We are driven to take action and be creative. We are driven into fuller natural expressions of ourselves by difficult external events and by female trials and difficulties. It's advisable for us to be imaginative and flexible and to go with the flow as well as to moderate flows. We are challenged to respond (rather than react) to shifting external events and dynamics that seem to be well beyond our control.

Major planet movements during November 2013.         

* The month starts off with the Sun in Scorpio, and ends it with the Sun in Sagittarius. The Sun moves into Sagittarius on November 21 at 8:36 PM MST in Denver, Colorado.

* Saturn spends the entire month of November between 13 and 17 degrees of Scorpio.

Saturn represents the taskmaster and teacher influences in our lives. When Saturn is active, we are held more accountable, and suffer consequences for ignoring needs and responsibilities. We are called to take stock of our lives and make changes oriented towards efficiency and practicality. However, where we have been diligent, Saturn provides us with respectability and a good reputation. Saturn can make us more serious emotionally, or even depressed. We can also find ourselves taking pride in our achievements when the time is appropriate. It's a good time to focus on consciously appreciating what brings us joy and cheer.

    * Sun aspects to Saturn during November: conjunct on Nov 5-7

    * Major Moon aspects to Saturn during November: conjunct on Nov 3, square on Nov 9, trine on Nov 11, opposition on Nov 16, trine on Nov 21, square on Nov 24

* Uranus spends the month in retrograde motion between 9 and 8 degrees of Aries. (Uranus stationed retrograde at 12 Aries 31 on July 18th, and stations direct on Dec 17, 2013 at 8 Aries 35.)

Uranus in Aries represents fiery change, where enthusiasms and energy are expressed in a passionate, directed manner. Increasing independence, tendency towards rebelliousness and revolution, and amazing insights and inventions are some of the themes indicated by Uranus. The current rash of shootings, rebellions, and agitation for change worldwide all suggest Uranus' influence.

Uranus is in square aspect to Pluto between 2011 and 2015 continuously. Aspects from the planets to Uranus and/or Pluto trigger this combination. Pluto intensifies Uranus' themes, adding the qualities of crisis and gravity to situations.

    * Sun aspects to Uranus during November: trine on Nov 29, 30

    * Major Moon aspects to Uranus during November: trine on Nov 5, square on Nov 7, conjunct on Nov 13, square on Nov 20, trine on Nov 23, opposition on Nov 28

* Neptune spends the month in retrograde motion at 2 degrees of Pisces, its home sign. Neptune stations direct on Nov 13 at 2 Pisces 35.

Neptune is the planet of dreams and illusions, and of the need to seek for clarity and refinement. Sometimes Neptune makes it easier for us to reach to the divine and to the mystical. Certain positions of Neptune when compared to the natal chart also indicate emotional vulnerability and a strong artistic bent. On a worldly level, Neptune supports themes of watery events and catastrophes, as well as major oil discoveries. Neptune also represents long-term ventures.

    * Sun aspects to Neptune during November: square on Nov 23 - 25

    * Major Moon aspects to Neptune during November: trine on Nov 2, square on Nov 4, conjunct on Nov 11, square on Nov 17, trine on Nov 20, opposition on Nov 25, trine on Nov 30

* Pluto spends the month in direct motion between 9 and 10 degrees of Capricorn. (It stationed direct at 9 degrees of Capricorn on September 21, just before the equinox, which added more portent to this time.)

Pluto is the planet of transformation, chaos, resentments, and empowerment. Power struggles with others or within oneself are often indicative of Pluto's touch. Increasing governmental impacts are also indicated by Pluto. Extreme overturning of the status quo is also represented by Pluto (as well as big attempts at overturning.)

Currently, Pluto is in a multi-year square with Uranus. Uranus adds the element of surprise and unexpected turns of events to the crisis themes that Pluto can represent. Dates when the Sun or Moon are aspecting either Pluto or Uranus are triggering this square. During these times, expect to witness violent and sudden change and revolution on many levels, geological, societal, governmental, economic, and even scientific inventiveness and big changes in the music and arts scene. Leaders who are strongly empowered by mass sentiment rise up to guide and target major changes. Many conflicting mass sentiments are in play, like wild waves on a stormy ocean.
Pluto also represents the finding and developing of mineral wealth from underground, either through direct mineral extraction, or through the nurturing of gardens and farms for food (to imbibe minerals to enhance our health!)

    * Sun aspects to Pluto during November: sextile on Nov 1,2

    * Major Moon aspects to Pluto during November: conjunct on Nov 7, square on Nov 13, trine on Nov 16, opposition on Nov 21, trine on Nov 26, square on Nov 28

* Jupiter spends the month between 20 and 19 degrees of Cancer. (Jupiter will station retrograde on Nov 6, 10PM MST at 20 Cancer 31)

Jupiter is expansiveness, often indicates optimism and grandness, and represents teaching and philosophy. Jupiter is considered to be a beneficial planet, the 'Santa Claus' of the zodiac. However, all may not always be happiness when Jupiter touches us, because Jupiter may expand negative influences when it is aspecting difficult planetary configurations by indicating excessiveness. Often, though, there are reasons to be optimistic when Jupiter is in play for us.

    * Sun aspects to Jupiter during November: trine on Nov 11-13

    * Major Moon aspects to Jupiter during November: trine on Nov 3, opposition on Nov 8, trine on Nov 12, square on Nov 14, conjunct on Nov 21

* A note about aspects:
    * Challenging aspects are squares, oppositions,quincunxes, and some conjunctions (aka conjoins, or 'in the same position'). During these times, life can be more difficult. Obstacles arise, tensions develop, and the driving need for action and solutions is a strong motivator.
    * Flowing and easy aspects include trines, sextiles, and some conjunctions. During these times, relationships and activities just seem to work - for better or worse. A happy time is made happier by these aspects, a difficult time can be even more difficult if the energies support it! But generally trines and conjunctions strengthen the themes of current relationships or activities and help gifts to unfold within them. At these times it is helpful to us to recognize these gifts as they manifest!

Orin's Meditation Room

There are many beautiful meditations for self-empowerment through divine connection on this page.

Meditating on Light   
Reflections on a daily practice   

When you meditate in silence, put all your cares to one side and concentrate on Light as though everything depended on it, as though your very life depended on it. . . Do this every day, several times a day. As soon as you have a few spare minutes, concentrate your thought on Light, rest in Light, melt into Light, soak yourself in Light and picture the whole universe bathed in Light . . . Little by little, as you do this, you will find that all the elements of your being begin to fall into place, that this Light is bringing you true knowledge, lasting peace, inner balance and power.
