This week starts off on Friday morning with a one-way dristhi (energetic gaze) from Mars retrograde right on our Moon at the end of Leo. The Moon is in the star of Uttara Phalguni, here, where contracts and agreements are being made. Watch out for any anger or resentments lurking beneath the surface, or perhaps hidden passions, as Mars’ fiery gaze is coming from sensual Taurus. We may not be in complete integrity with ourselves and our actions in our efforts to experience connection and feel good.
As the Moon transits into the Virgo part of this nakshatra by evening, we may become more reticent and critical of both ourselves and others, but a generous two-way gaze with Jupiter, still Retrograde in Pisces, will help show us a path through our beliefs and ideals. This is a great time to use what inspires you to organize your priorities. That may not sound like a romantic Friday night, but it is certainly sexier than letting things continue to slide and building up resentment. The weekend will have this Virgo vibe, so all the partying you may have planned, might be less fun than you planned, LOL. It is, however, a great time to take care of yourself, and be in soothing and natural environments!
By Monday, you will be feeling the social vibes, when the Moon enters Libra, but the critical quality may become more precise, as the Moon joins Ketu, the South Node, and becomes exact on Tuesday. On Wed, November 23rd, the Moon is transiting into Scorpio where it is debilitated due to too much emotional turmoil. This will be our New Moon with the Sun and Moon joined Venus and Mercury and the ruler of Scorpio, Mars, retrograde and giving mutual dristhi across the way in Taurus. Thanksgiving will be a gathering for sure, LOL! Avoid emotional and heated discussions at all costs and particularly on Thursday, find physical activities that can help diminish the pent-up Mars energy. Read on to find out how these transits will affect all 12 Signs!

This Week in the Stars for all 12 Vedic Rising Signs!
*please note, this is for use with the sidereal zodiac only
For you Aries, your Ruling Planet is starting off the week with a lot of questions around your value and just how much you do actually show up for yourself. As the week progresses you will find yourself beginning to project that outward to others and really noticing how much work it takes to relate to others, and wondering if it is worth it. Time to really step into your physical practices. Exercise, meditate, breathe. It is not anyone else’s fault your are not doing what you think you should. No one else is making you weak. Expect the unexpected for the holidays as the New Moon is transiting across from your ruling planet in the 8th house on Wednesday and Thursday!
Taurus you are up to your eyes in other people and their requests of you right now. It is all you can do to stay on top of it. Remember to take care of yourself too. When anger arises, take a moment to breathe and move through it. This New Moon is in your 7th house of Others/Partners, so you can count on connection for the holiday. Melodramatic connection? Perhaps, but hey, this is a holiday that is all about cooking and eating, your actual favorite activities, so just take another serving, listen with compassion, and be glad it is other people’s drama not yours!
Gemini, you are going to have a tough month, with the planetary pile up in the 6th house of health, debts and arguments. This could be a good holiday to serve the homeless food or in some other way help society and serve others. With the moon in your 4th for the weekend, it may be best to just stay home now and preserve your energy for the beginning and middle of next week. Creativity may be high early on Monday and Tuesday, so enjoy whatever you do. The New Moon is setting off a cycle, and it could be one of feeling like a victim, or feeling like a saint. You choose.
Cancer for you, the Moon is you, roiling around the chart trying to find a home. This also makes New and Full Moon cycles tough as you are either feeling “disappeared” or “lit up” yourself every month. This weekend may be a good time to learn a new skill, particularly one that requires attention to detail, and then to feel whatever is in your heart around other people and your relationships early in the week. It could feel a bit harsh, as your ruling planet passes over the South node on Tuesday. Come Wednesday and Thursday, however, you are likely to reset your mind, and remember what you love. Find good company for the holiday, and remember you are valued!
For you Leo, this is a weekend that starts off with your emotional projections on the front end as the Moon, your 12th lord finishes her transit on your rising sign Friday, and then moves into your 2nd house, where you are likely to feel some disappointment and loss around your value. Unfortunately, wherever the Moon travels, she brings you feelings of loss and hopefully, teaches you to surrender along the way. As we move into the new week Monday and Tuesday, you will likely want to up level your skill set and learn something new, maybe even fueled by a bit of competition, releasing the fruits of your labors will be the only way to win. Come Wednesday and Thursday you might find that your home feels full, it probably already does, as Mercury, Venus and the Sun (your ruling planet) are already there, but when the Moon joins, it might bring well, disappointment. The New Moon will set off a cycle where you navigate a full house. Don’t forget, a full house can also mean a full heart!
Virgo, this Friday the Moon, your 11th lord of community and groups of people is transiting from your 12th house of escape and confusion into your 1st house of Self. You will likely feel yourself coming into yourself as the late afternoon/evening progresses. As others start to feel the anxiety of the Moon in Virgo, you will feel like the world finally understands you and cares as much about the details as you do! As she traverses through your 2nd and 3rd houses the rest of the week, expect to lean into your value in community and maybe even learn a new skill or two, which is the theme for the month for you! Taking a class can be helpful, as is trying something different in your career and whatever you do, don’t be attached to the results, as the Sun, your 12th lord is joined and can bring disappointment if you are attached to the ends as opposed to focused on the means.
This week begins with you feeling social, Libra but by evening of Friday, you may find you want to run and hide! As the Moon will be in your 12th house this weekend, hiding may be an answer. Particularly if you have any career things come up by then. Now is not the time to make decisions, as you are likely to be confused and projecting disappointment where it may not be. As the Moon moves onto your rising sign on Monday and Tuesday, you may feel the deep pain of Ketu in the 1st house, and how that affects your status and reputation, but allow the Moon to move through you and you will come back to your value by Wednesday and Thursday. This New Moon sets off a cycle of money and values for you, so enjoy what comes your way!
There’s no question this month is going to be tough, Scorpio, particularly in relation to others and partners in your life. With the Sun, Venus and Mercury all in your 1st house and your ruling planet Retrograde across the way in the 7th, the theme here is trying to get along even as you traverse past issues you thought were laid to rest. Whatever problems you have been “sticking a pin” in in your relationships, or just outright ignoring, are certainly coming home to roost now and you are having trouble ignoring them. It is not necessarily a good time to deal with your relational issues, as it is to really reflect on them and how you have contributed to their existence. This also brings up your career, as the Sun is your 10th lord, your community and the ways in which you feel like a victim, as Mercury is your 6th and 11th lord. This would be a good time to see how you can be of more service to society and to have a reset on your status and recognition.
Sag, right now it is easy to escape. Your ruling planet is still Retrograde in the 4th house of home, the planetary pile up is in your 12th house of loss, disappointment, sleep, confusion, and even what you love (your 5th lord of Children, Creativity) is in the 6th house, retrograde making it feel like a lot of work to enjoy anything. With all your principles and ideals, though, wouldn’t it feel better to step out of the delusion and into the freedom of letting go. Can you surrender your beliefs of how things should be and allow them to just be as they are? And take responsibility for anything that isn’t aligned in your life? What if instead of “checking out” you decided to “check in” instead? Meditate my friend. Turn your escape hatch into an ashram.
Capricorn, it may feel like you are suddenly much more social than you usually want to be. This is because that is so. The pile up of planets in your 11th are keeping you socially busy and since this relates to your Career, Children and Creativity, Dharma/Life Purpose, and Facing your Biggest Fears/ things that are out of your control, it is a little much for your usual diligent, humble and hardworking self! Take it one step at a time. The Moon is your 7th lord, so it is bringing you connection with others, and partnership each step of the way, so you are not alone. You may feel that your creativity and children are bringing you the most peace right now, but they are also bringing you the most action, maybe even in your home! Move slow and breathe often and you will find that you get to nestle into more quiet vibes next month when all these planets move into your 12th house!
You can feel the tension building around your career right now, Aquarius, even as your ruling planet is still staunchly keeping you hiding out! Allow yourself to find the creativity, peace and dharma in what you bring to the world, rather than focusing on the status and recognition that may feel like it is going backwards right now. Allow your partner or others to help you help others and maintain your external responsibilities. The Moon may be bringing feelings of how hard it all is this week, but take it each step at a time and remember to be in Service is the greatest gift of all.
Pisces, you are having a very enlightening experience right now, with all these planets in your 9th. Facing your own and other people’s fears and dragons is just what you were made to do! There may be some resentments, difficulties, particularly with regards to groups of people and community. There will also be connection and recognition as you tap into your highest beliefs and ideals and stay true to what you know to be true. This weekend will be all about partners, Monday and Tuesday sudden unexpected events, and the New Moon and Thanksgiving will bring you back home to your purpose and path. Allow the love of children, creativity and fun to guide your through your difficulties as the Moon is this beacon of light for you and she is ever-moving through the houses.
