Current from 26th November to 12th December 2019
The second to last new moon conjunction for 2019 will occur on 26th November in the sign of Sagittarius. The planet Jupiter rules Sagittarius so its movement from its own sign (Sagittarius) to Capricorn on the 2nd December is of huge importance to the two week period of the waxing moon phases.
Jupiter has been like a kindly and indulgent monarch during 2019 but that’s about to change when it reaches the sign belonging to Saturn. Now there is loads of accountability and questions over whether you have truly deserved your lucky breaks during this year. Saturn rules Capricorn and acts as an advisor to Jupiter but Saturn is a bit mean-spirited and much of the progress made over the past twelve months risks grinding to a halt under the watchful eye of Saturn.
Simply put, the bad news is that Jupiter has moved from its rulership sign (Sagittarius) to its least favourite sign of fall (Capricorn). The good news is that Saturn itself is in rulership in Capricorn – shown in the New Moon chart at 17 degrees – so although Jupiter is now under Saturn’s supervision at least Saturn is trying hard to bring out the best in Jupiter’s commitments. On a practical level, you are likely to be time poor during this new moon fortnight as all the things that Jupiter promised cannot come to fruition under certain time constraints.
Working hard and making the most of an extra busy time is likely to be the result of Jupiter’s sign change, which seems a little unfair as we expect things to wind down a little at the end of the year – not to get harder to manage. Jupiter is the significator of wealth and moving into Saturn’s sign is usually not a great comment on loads of spare cash, so be careful when you’re out Christmas shopping this year! You may have to pull in your purse strings if you don’t want to pay the price of excessive generosity in the New Year.
Planets to Watch in the Next Fortnight
Jupiter’s Change in Sign from Sagittarius to Capricorn (2nd December 2019)
Mars’ sign has changed from Libra to Scorpio during last Full Moon
Mercury’s Change in Sign from Scorpio to Sagittarius (9th December 2019)
Uranus quincunx Sun and Moon
This blog is the third New Moon I have looked at since beginning the series for Star Sense Astrology on You Tube. The signs may have changed over this time, but the degrees are very similar and each time, that is, when the Sun and Moon are together in Libra, Scorpio, and Sagittarius, they have picked up a close connection to the planet Uranus. Two months ago in later September Sun and Moon were five signs away and formed a quincunx to Uranus. A month ago the new moon in Scorpio was opposing Uranus in Taurus.
Now, once again, the quincunx is repeated only this time from the other side of the opposition as Sagittarius has no commonality with Taurus. These inklings of discontent, disruption and change, change, change, are not going away – if anything, they are only getting stronger and the feeling of no longer ‘fitting’ your life is an urge that may be impossible to ignore in this upcoming month.
Uranus opposing Mars
Mars is in the same degree as the Sun and Moon, but there is no aspect to make them aware of one another. However, Mars does oppose Uranus and these two in a state of tension can be explosive under the right conditions. Mars is also in rulership in Scorpio and feeling justified in your anger is no excuse for destroying those who get in your way, or can’t keep up with your volatile mood changes.
Mercury trine Neptune
Like Mars, Mercury is also in Scorpio at the beginning of these two weeks and the planet that signifies thought, speech and memory can get a bit obsessive in this sign. Neptune trines Mercury and this aspect may help to move any feelings of frustration or insult by bringing in compassion or the ability to consider other people’s point of view. But Neptune can also be deceptive so checking out the facts for yourself, rather than believing others, is an absolute must over the next two weeks.
