“As far as we can discern, the purpose of human existence is to kindle a
light in the darkness of mere being.” – Carl Jung
On the other side of the planet there are over a Billion people celebrating Diwali- the Festival of Light on Nov 14 and the Scorpio New Moon. At temples, homes, and community gatherings people are making Rangolis- mandalas on the earth made of flowers, spices, and elements of nature illuminated with small oil lamps. This is to honor the inner light of being during the dark season and its return to our awareness.
For the new moon, the sign of Scorpio represents darkness, death, dissolution and loss- its a journey through the underworld of the Soul to recover our Inner-Light. This is story told over and over all around the world. The New Moon & Sun are together in the sky and sextiling Jupiter & Pluto. This is our Inner & Out Self supported by Truth and the Soul. All of this energy reminded us of Carl Jung’s quote and what our Soul Purpose is at this time, “As far as we can discern, the purpose of human existence is to kindle a light in the darkness of mere being.”
On Nov 15, Venus will square Jupiter & Pluto. Venus is Self-Love, Self-Worth, and our Values squaring Truth and the eye of the Soul. The job of a square is to “illuminate” where something is in alignment with Karma/Dharma. Resining this illumination can be challenging, but if we are able to surrender it can be a “dovetail” into a new Truth. Seek to use your Yoga. Find centeredness through meditation, prayer, breath, and Bhakti (devotion of your heart).
Nov 17 will be electric as Mercury opposes Uranus. These planets are octaves of each other sharing connection to the Mind, Electricity, the Nervous System, Consciousness, and the Network of Information. Mercury relates to the ego mind and Uranus relates to you Personal Unconscious & Unknown Soul. Your Higher Self is sitting down for a cup a tea with the Ego. Oppositions are opportunities to work together, dialog, and evolve. However, resistance is futile. If you are unwilling to hear from your Personal Unconscious, then Uncle Uranus will use lightning to get your attention. Its best for your nervous system to have the cup of tea and go along- it is your Dharma after all.
Venus squares Saturn on Nov 19. Self-Love squares Karma and Authority. Stay to your yoga again. Breath, pray, pause and reflect before acting or responding. You will not regret staying to your center and taking the high road in any situation when hind-sight is clear.
Nov 21 is the 1/2 moon in Pisces and a big day. Venus enters Scorpio. It is Persephone in the Underworld being striped down naked to the Truth of the Self. This could be a mystical time to let go of what needs to die- old beliefs, thought patters, and “truths” that no longer serve. To quote Carl Jung again. “There is no coming to consciousness without pain.” That pain is often attachment to what was and letting go.
The sun enters the sign of Sagittarius today and starts a new astrological month until the Solstice. Sagittarius is fire and follows the sign of Death- Scorpio. Sagittarius is what we realize and resurrect after walking through the hell realms of death and loss- reemerging, renewed and closer to Truth.
On Nov 21 the Pleiades constellation will be directly overhead at Mid-Night. The Pleiades are recognized in many wisdom traditions as the place in the cosmos where we come from, and where wisdom comes from. In Japan it is “Subaru”and to the Yogis “The Rishis” or 7 Seers. NASA identifies the Pleiades as the direction of the Big Bang and the origin of the Universe. This is the start of a new year in ancient New Zealand (Aotearoa) and for the Yogis as well. The new moon on Nov 14 is the perfect time to view this constellation.
On Nov 23, Mercury will trine Neptune. Our conscious mind gets support from our spiritual path. There could also be revelations around the pandemic as Neptune rules pandemics.
Nov 26 the Sun trines Chiron and is Thanksgiving. Chiron is the wounded-healer and this could be a day of forgiveness and lightness heart. This could be with family or a collective healing with our current society and the ancestors of our lands here in America. Seek to reconcile with your family, community, and Mother Earth.
Venus will oppose Uranus on Nov 27. Uranus rules unpredictable, unknowable, and unexpected events. So, expect the unexpected today.
A big one on Nov 28, Neptune goes direct after 5 months retrograde. When Neptune is retrograde it can sow chaos and confusion to show where we are out of alignment with Spirit. It operates like a great tidal wave and washes things away, never to return. Many have been waiting for things to go back to “normal”, but Neptune will not return to normal what was misaligned with the laws of Nature. Neptune direct will start to give mean to the past 5-months.
Finally, Nov 30 is the Gemini Full Moon and Lunar Eclipse. We are in eclipse season now and things will be “cut” that are misaligned to Life. Stay to the inner light yogis!
