ATMann’s November Penumbral Eclipse Astrology Newsletter
Listen to a recording of this newsletter
The 30 November Penumbral Lunar Eclipse happens in Gemini at 4:30AM EST and once again shows an intermeshing of most of the planets within a very tight bucket shape except the eighth house Moon itself, which is the “handle.” Hence, it is a very changeably emotional time, with flips and flops happening irregularly. However, the good news is that the Sun entered the positive and philosophical fire sign Sagittarius, which brings light, mindfulness and insight into play now, when they are badly needed.
Both the Sag Sun and Gemini Moon are triggered by a “conditional” and challenging sesquiquadrate to the triad of major planets, Saturn, Jupiter and Pluto, especially strong now as the Jupiter/Saturn conjunction in zero Aquarius approaches its manifestation at the Winter Solstice. Idealism meets practicality and trumps are finally out. Sadly, the virus is likely to continue to rise as holiday times proceed towards the solstice and travel is likely to increase against advice. Foreign matters collide with local ones as these two mutable (and double) signs stress mental disagreements all around. Negotiations are in full force and practical issues tend to dominate much of the conversation, especially as the bulk of planets are below the horizon in the unconscious half of the chart, which means that many actions are spontaneous and likely unthought out. This might be dangerous as irrational thoughts and actions may be likely now as Mercury in Scorpio triggers the triad as well, and for good measure. Wounds that were thought to be healed might reopen as shifts in attitude tend to exaggerate differences.
Venus in Scorpio (and in the first house in EST) opposes Uranus in Taurus, so emotions and relationships are also in flux, mainly due to COVID19, however it also opens up creative possibilities and opportunities for us all, as well as loving energies shifting polarities, and sudden changes in communication quality.
The Nodal axis is still in Gemini/Sagittarius, so communication remains a major issue now, and as family and relationship connects become either nonexistent or muted dur to the virus, the fact that they are what determines the penumbral eclipse shows us that groups of any kind are likely to be strained for a while into the future and hence any events that require the public are probably to be curtailed if we want to be safe and secure.
Of interest is that Mars in its sign Aries shows that origination and individuality are likely to be accented now due mainly to the pandemic and finding inspiration while in seclusion is very good for some types of creativity, it is impossible for others, even though Mars does provide us with energy and forcefulness when well-aspected with the luminaries as it is now.
On the other hand, the asteroid Chiron and storyteller of our woundedness challenges the eclipsing luminaries and shows that we must remain mindful to the difficulties and health challenges so many people are confronting at this time and for the foreseeable future. It is, however a good time to be more aware of good diet, quality of food and access to exercise.
And meanwhile, Neptune is in its sign Pisces and we are still “at sea” and being challenged by our unreliable media and the general tendencies to challenging theories about various major issues that spread virally as well as the pandemic. Trust is valuable and essential, so ensure that what information you do trust is verifiable and correct as best you can. Neptune always challenges us to be well-grounded and nature is the best way to maintain that necessary balance to the mental strain the world situation presents us these days and into the future.
