Weekly Horoscope Sunday, November 28 to Saturday, December 4, 2021

All Signs

This week begins in a dreamy way that makes us start to wonder about future goals. “What if?” As the week progresses, many of these ideas will start to become a reality. Therefore, this is the week to be confident. Shoot for the stars! Goethe said, “There is one elementary truth the ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans: that the moment one definitely commits oneself, then Providence moves too. All sorts of things occur to help one that would never otherwise have occurred. A whole stream of events issues from the decision, raising in one’s favor all manner of unforeseen incidents … Whatever you can do, or dream you can do, begin it. Boldness has genius, power, and magic in it. Begin it now!”

Aries (March 21-April 19)

This is a perfect time to hatch plans for future travel and opportunities to explore your world because these ideas will appeal to you now. Not only do you want to expand your world through travel, many of you also want to expand your world through further education and training. What exciting schools might you attend? Do you want to learn a new language? With Venus at the top of your chart, authority figures are receptive to your suggestions and applications. (Good to know.) Meanwhile, this is a passionate week. However, many of you will also use this energy to help others, especially those who are less fortunate. (Can’t go wrong there.)

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

This is an excellent time to dream big and conjure up all kinds of future possibilities because with Jupiter at the top of your chart, this is a fortunate time for you. People see you as successful. Many things will go your way. Furthermore, Saturn at the top of your chart indicates that you are in a time of harvest, when you are reaping the benefits of the last 30 years of your life. (Certainly, the last fifteen.) How timely then, to define some goals this week or at least, to dream big! Travel for pleasure appeals. Your focus on shared property, debt and insurance issues continues to be strong. Tension with partners will ease this week because Neptune softens potential conflicts. What do you want your future to hold?

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Many planets benefit you right now. Some are supportive of you, especially in a practical way, which means gifts, goodies and favours from others will come to you. Your desire to travel and explore the world is strong, which means this is only one area where you can conjure up dreams for the future. Fiery Mars is in the part of your chart that will energize your work efforts. This is an excellent week for creativity, goalsetting and inspiration. By the end of the week, you’re ready to pull yourself up by your bootstraps. You know what you want to achieve and you believe that anything is possible. And it is! (Be patient with partners and close friends while the Sun is opposite your sign. This creates a natural polarity that encourages conflict.)

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

It’s appropriate for you to think about future goals and dream big because you are energized to work hard now. You are very hands-on with your approach to things because you want to be efficient and effective in everything you do. You want to make your actions count. Sometimes inertia holds you back from beginning. You like to cling to familiarity. Read Goethe’s comments in the All Signs section above. He points out that once you commit to a decision, amazing things will unfold – even things you never dreamed would be possible. You have been getting along with less, but you have survived. About 18 months from now, your reputation will be shining! What are you going to do to deserve this? (Apparently something.)

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

This is a playful time with increased activity with kids plus a strong interest in the arts, the entertainment world and a chance to express your creative talents. (The stuff you like.) This week is an excellent time to think about how you can achieve something that is important to you. First visualize what might seem to be impossible. That way you get a handle on how it looks. Define it. Name it. Once you can name it – you’re halfway there. As the week progresses, you can embrace a plan that can unfold in a doable way. This year your focus is on external goals – more than it’s been in the last 17 years.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Your focus on home and family continues, especially because family discussions are important at this time. In particular, they could involve home improvements and repairs. Many of you are entertaining at home as well, and some of you are able to grab a vacation. Yay! However, at the beginning of this dreamy week, you will start to visualize things that you would like to see happen in the future. These things could be related to your career or your work or they might be fun possibilities that offer escape and exciting adventure. You still have wonderful opportunities to improve your health, as well as improve your job. If you’re successful in doing this – what’s next? A marathon?

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

This is a busy active time for you due to short trips, errands, appointments plus, conversations with siblings, relatives and neighbours. Many of you are reading, writing and studying more than usual as well. Nevertheless, this week offers you chances to dream about future possibilities. Some of you will focus on money, cash flow and how to feel more financially secure. Many of you have increased responsibilities with kids or young people at this time. Many of you are also redecorating or entertaining at home and enjoying the beauty of your home. Since these areas are a strong focus, perhaps they will be sources of where you might decide to dream big? Ideas?

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

This week, Mars is in your sign dancing with dreamy Neptune, which prompts you to imagine possible futures for yourself. It makes you focus on ambitious goals. Naturally, this triggers your desire to brainstorm all kinds of possibilities for your future. As the week wears on, you will see ways that some of these dreams can become a reality. You might set about implementing certain plans in a way that they will come to fruition. This energy continues all week. By Friday, you are still enthusiastic about what is possible for your future. This is a wonderful thing! Read the quote by Goethe in All Signs above. The key is commitment to a plan!

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

This is an interesting week because you like to think about your future a lot and in particular, you like to dream big. Well, it so happens that the planetary influences this week push absolutely everyone in that direction. You will feel right at home thinking about future goals and ways to achieve them. With the Sun and Mercury in your sign, this is the perfect time to define clearly what you want for your future. Meanwhile, Venus will attract money and gifts to you this week. At this point in your life, residential moves and job changes are par for the course. Naturally, this leads to new worlds full of new possibilities. It’s exciting!

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

This week will suit you perfectly because this is one of the best times all year to think about future goals. More than most, you take a long range of view of things because you are practical, and also perhaps unconsciously, because you know you are a long-lived sign. Ideas about finances, making money and matters about your financial security are things you might think about this week. You might also see ways to help a charitable organization or those who are less fortunate. Meanwhile, with Venus in your sign, you are unusually charming and diplomatic with everyone.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

This is a fortunate time for you because lucky Jupiter is in your sign, which is something that can happen only once every 12 years. Meanwhile, this is a stage in your life when you are setting off on a new path of re-inventing yourself. What could be more timely than this particular week that encourages daydreams, visualizing goals and then suddenly, seeing that these goals are actually doable! Your ambition is aroused now because Mars is at the top of your chart. Meanwhile, you are interacting with friends and groups more than usual. Why not bounce your ideas off someone to get their feedback? (A secret affair is likely for some of you.)

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

You will continue to make a fabulous impression on everyone because the Sun is at the top of your chart casting you (symbolically speaking) in a flattering spotlight. This is why bosses, parents and VIPs are so impressed with you. This is the perfect week to visualize what you want for your future. You are an imaginative sign, and you have great visionary powers. Presently, you’re letting go of many things – people, places and possessions because you’re in a state of transition. But you are obviously heading for a whole new beginning in about a year. When you open those future doors – where do you want them to lead?

You can use this link to go forward or backward in time for Moon phase information. If you are curious you can even find out what phase the Moon was in when you or anyone else, you know was on the date the person was born.

From Moongiant.com

The Moon’s current phase for today and tonight is a Third Quarter phase. In this phase the Moon’s illumination is growing smaller each day until the New Moon. During this part of the Moon cycle, the Moon is getting closer to the Sun as viewed from Earth and the night side of the Moon is facing the Earth with only a small edge of the Moon being illuminated. This phase is best viewed an hour or 2 before the sunrise and can be quite beautiful if you’re willing to get up early. It can also be a great time to see the features of the Moon’s surface. Along the edge where the illuminated portion meets the dark side, the craters and mountains cast long shadows making them easier to observe with a telescope or binoculars.

The archangel Michael is in charge of this day.  In the Hebrew language, Michael’s name means: ‘One who is as God’. Sunday and Michael are both associated with the Sun. This makes a lot of sense.  Consider, Sunday in earlier eras was commonly established as the day of Sabbath, or day of worship.  The symbolic meaning of the Sun is akin to the spirit, the light that shines bright within us, the fire within the soul.  Archangel Michael and the Sun are mighty partners to enhance our virtues, devotionals, prayers and meditations on Sunday.

Quert/Ceirt

Q is for Quert, sometime spelled Ceirt, and is tied to the luscious Apple tree. Long symbolic of love and faithfulness, as well as rebirth, the Apple is often associated with magic. If you cut an apple in half sideways, the seeds form one of nature’s perfect stars. In addition to love, the appearance of Quert reminds us of the eternal cycle of life. After all, once the Apple tree dies, its fruit returns to the ground to birth new trees for coming harvests.

The Apple and its blossoms feature prominently in folklore related to love, prosperity and fertility. The Roman goddess Pomona watched over orchards, and was associated not so much with the harvest, but with the flourishing of the crop. Apples are also connected with divination, particularly for young ladies wondering about their love lives.

Quert Correspondences

Mundane Aspects: No one likes to be faced with choices, because sometimes what we want is not what we need. However, we still must choose. Sometimes, we make decisions because they are the right ones to make, not because they make us happy. Be wise enough to understand the difference.

Magical Aspects: Open your inner soul to new decisions, and allow yourself to harvest the gifts that your spiritual path has to offer. Know that sometimes, things might not make sense, but chances are good that you’ll learn from this later.

OTHILA

THE SEPARATION FROM THE PAST

This rune represents the need for a change in life, like letting go of the old skin and moving ahead in achieving one’s goal. It can be incorporated into life events, be it a past relationship or move ahead with something new, which is good. Release yourself from the experience you have obtained. Obedience is a necessary virtue people need to have while pulling out this Norse rune.

Besides, it also represents profit and gain. But one must learn to benefit from the provided things and remain obedient and modest.

SITUATION ANALYSIS:

Victory at the expense of another is a merciless taskmaster.
The precarious balance here is reflected in the lines of the hexagram: each of the yin lines rests upon a strong yang line — a seemingly perfect arrangement.
But the scales will be tipped with the change of any one line.
And there WILL be change.

One

From a spiritual perspective, the 1 is the number of creation – the primal force from which all other numbers spring forth. Some say once you truly understand the place and function of this elemental number, enlightenment will be yours.

This statement doesn’t apply to a Numerologist’s perspective alone, but perhaps it’s a good place to start since the personality of the number 1 aligns nicely with its elevated spiritual symbolism.

The 1 is a doer, a powerful force that produces results.

The 1 is aggressive – a necessary trait for creating, and not allowing anything to limit its potential. The 1 is the spearhead, always in the forefront directing and leading others.

The shape of this number reflects its meaning; the 1 walks upright with pride and purpose – strong, determined, and unwavering with a specific goal in mind. The 1 is capable of turning ideas into reality – pushing obstacles aside or simply drilling right through them.

The 1 tends to have a simple, straightforward view of life, heedless of its many complexities.

An individual with the dynamic 1 trusts their ability to separate right from…

A High Cliff on Comet Churyumov-Gerasimenko

Explanation: This high cliff occurs not on a planet, not on a moon, but on a comet. It was discovered to be part of the dark nucleus of Comet Churyumov-Gerasimenko (CG) by Rosetta, a robotic spacecraft launched by ESA that rendezvoused with the Sun-orbiting comet in 2014. The ragged cliff, as featured here, was imaged by Rosetta in 2014. Although towering about one kilometer high, the low surface gravity of Comet CG would likely make it an accessible climb — and even a jump from the cliff survivable. At the foot of the cliff is relatively smooth terrain dotted with boulders as large as 20 meters across. Data from Rosetta indicates that the ice in Comet CG has a significantly different deuterium fraction — and hence likely a different origin — than the water in Earth’s oceans. Rosetta ended its mission with a controlled impact onto Comet CG in 2016. Comet CG has just completed another close approach to Earth and remains visible through a small telescope.

28 November Daily Correspondence Digest for the Southern Hemisphere’s Moon Phase and Planetary Positions

You can use this link to go forward or backward in time for Moon phase information. If you are curious you can even find out what phase the Moon was in when you or anyone else, you know was on the date the person was born.

From Moongiant.com

The Moon’s current phase for today and tonight is a Third Quarter phase. In this phase the Moon’s illumination is growing smaller each day until the New Moon. During this part of the Moon cycle, the Moon is getting closer to the Sun as viewed from Earth and the night side of the Moon is facing the Earth with only a small edge of the Moon being illuminated. This phase is best viewed an hour or 2 before the sunrise and can be quite beautiful if you’re willing to get up early. It can also be a great time to see the features of the Moon’s surface. Along the edge where the illuminated portion meets the dark side, the craters and mountains cast long shadows making them easier to observe with a telescope or binoculars.

Today’s Waning Crescent Phase

The Waning Crescent on November 28 has an illumination of 40%. This is the percentage of the Moon illuminated by the Sun. The illumination is constantly changing and can vary up to 10% a day. On November 28 the Moon is 23.12 days old. This refers to how many days it has been since the last New Moon. It takes 29.53 days for the Moon to orbit the Earth and go through the lunar cycle of all 8 Moon phases.

The 8 Lunar Phases

There are 8 lunar phases the Moon goes through in its 29.53 days lunar cycle. The 4 major Moon phases are Full Moon, New Moon, First Quarter and Last Quarter. Between these major phases, there are 4 minor ones: the Waxing Crescent, Waxing Gibbous, Waning Gibbous and Waning Crescent. For more info on the Moon Cycle and on each phase check out Wikipedia
