Following the Moon: Nov. 26, 2019MoonImagePurple

The Full Moon chart for Nov. 12 struck me as strangely benign considering what was happening in Washington during the past two weeks. (Click here to see that article and the chart.) We heard a lot of testimony that should have shocked everyone but half the nation seems to have ignored it. Republicans in congress held fast to their president’s story that nothing untoward happened and the polls have not shown much movement in public opinion.

As promised, there were rumblings of things going on behind the scenes, such as the connections between the Republican Leader, Devin Nunes, and Rudy Giuliani, and President Trump’s surprise trip to the hospital. Meanwhile, Lindsay Graham’s decision to open an investigation into Joe Biden and his son is loaded with subtext since Graham and Biden have been good friends for years and there is no evidence of impropriety in Biden's dealings with Ukraine or his son.

Essentially, it would seem that Venus square Neptune in this Full Moon chart, along with Neptune trine the Sun and sextile the Moon, has had us all asleep for the past two weeks. We may have had some disturbing dreams of a President of the United States shaking down a foreign leader for dirt on a political rival, but about half of us chose to hide our heads under the covers. That's about to change, because the chart for today’s New Moon is going to be hard to sleep through. (Click here to see the horoscope.)

This chart is as noisy as the Nov. 12 chart was quiet, with combative Mars close to the Midheaven opposite disruptive Uranus on the I.C. This is an aspect that is definitely going to rattle some pots and pans. What makes this opposition even more striking is the fact that it is connected to the New Moon in Sagittarius. Mars is semi-sextile to the Sun and Moon and Uranus forms a quincunx. This indicates that this loud, disruptive energy is going to cut right through our holiday festivities.

Another ominous feature in this chart is the fact that Saturn is close to the Ascendant and nearing its conjunction with Pluto. Conjunctions of Saturn to Pluto have, in the past, coincided with some pretty heavy happenings (such as the beginning of World War I, the beginning of World War II and 9/11). The actual conjunction does not complete until January 2020, but this placement indicates that we might get a foretaste of what this notorious aspect has in store for us.

Obviously, it doesn’t seem like anything important can happen this week, Congress is in recess and the nation will be home eating turkey and watching holiday movies. However, some events don’t pay attention to the calendar. This chart seems to scream violence, so we can’t ignore the possibility of a mass shooting, a terrorist attack or a destructive weather event occurring during the next two weeks. Things are definitely going to be shaken up, and not is a way that is likely to bring comfort and joy to any of us.

Also, for those of us hoping for a relaxing vacation from the political havoc playing out in Washington, this chart could very definitely be bad news. Mars riding the Midheaven represents a challenge to our leadership and with gloomy Saturn and unforgiving Pluto in the First House, we are not going to be able to look away. Even with congress and the courts on holiday, we could see some disturbing developments.

Another interesting aspect in this chart is the trine between Neptune and Mercury. Both planets are sextile Saturn and the ascending degree. I think this has to do with us trying to hold on to our holiday fantasies despite what might be happening around us, but it could also refer to a secret that gets revealed to the public.

Of course, it could be that all this chart is predicting is a particularly rough and tumble Black Friday. I actually hope that’s all it is. However, I am more inclined to believe that our shopping list is going to be the least of our concerns during the next two weeks.
