Neptune and Chiron in Pisces challenge this full Moon to stay open to other realities and other ways of knowing, such as the feminine, empathic, instinctual knowledge that our society has tried to ignore and make irrelevant.   Open to Great Mystery and see what you discover.   There are many stories moving through the great Ocean of Life, the Collective Unconscious.   Which one attracts you?

Jupiter (Sagittarius' ruler) retrograde in Gemini joins the Moon, making it easier to understand the eclipse energies and to get the big Story.   Having Jupiter align with this full Moon eclipse marks a change in our beliefs and hopefully a change from blind religious faith to individual spiritual seeking.

Mercury (Gemini's ruler) just changed to direct motion on Monday November 26.   Starting its retrograde in Sagittarius very close to this eclipse degree, it has traveled back to 19* Scorpio: A parrot repeats the conversation he has overheard.   This is a degree that marks the gift of channeling information and wisdom from a higher source.   It's synchronistic that 5* Sagittarius (where Mercury began its retrograde) is: An old owl sits alone on the branch of an old tree.   The owl is associated with the ability to see in the dark.   Another symbol for wisdom, the owl can perceive the unconscious parts of ourselves which the ego can't or won't recognize.   Hopefully, this Mercury retrograde has been a time to look deep within and discover those parts of ourselves that have gone missing for a while.   Now it is possible to re-integrate them back into our conscious lives.   What stories did you abandon through the years?   Do you want to re-animate them?   Let them tell you a new story.

Venus and Saturn have been dancing together in Scorpio since last Wednesday.   They meet on Monday November 26th after Mercury goes direct.    Venus and Saturn sometimes make a somber pair, but they can also work together to stay focused on what love needs to do to heal ourselves and our partners.   Think responsible love as well as deep eroticism.   They meet at 7* Scorpio, the degree of last month's Taurus Full Moon:   Deep sea Divers. This symbol urges us to focus our intentions on exploring the deeper causes of our fears, our insecurities, or our inability to relate.   To dive deeply into the collective unconscious helps us understand the hidden energies of life that unconsciously move us toward greater growth or keep us stuck in a lingering death.

Mars moved into Capricorn on November 16th and is conjunct Pluto on November 27th -- bringing the energies of the Uranus/Pluto square into play, adding another piece of the puzzle to what we need to understand and embrace.   Mars symbolizes our personal desire nature (our 2nd chakra) while Pluto represent a transpersonal desire, the need to evolve.   Combined, we feel that the greater needs of life match our own desires   After Mars went into Capricorn, it opposed Ceres the Great Mother, hopefully acknowledging what needs to be done to ensure fertility and life.   Mars squared Uranus in Aries on November 23rd, challenging us to be true to ourselves and stand up for our desires.   Mars and Pluto come together at 9* Capricorn: An angle carrying a harp.   We are being attuned to the rhythm of universal life, the cosmic Truth of Life.   When our human desire nature serves the needs of Spirit, we are living our destiny.

Finally, there is a very strong YOD, or finger of Fate focused on the Moon at this eclipse.   One leg of the Yod focuses the energies of Venus and Saturn in Scorpio, transmitting their information about deep emotional transformation to the Gemini Moon. The other leg of the Yod focuses the energies of Mars and Pluto in Capricorn, acknowledging the need for social change.   If the Gemini Moon can take this information in and attune our minds to it, we will indeed see marvelous changes in the future.

  There really is a spiritual energy that enfolds and guides us.   It can be found within each one of us.   It is called by many names, but I call it Lady Wisdom.

   This is a blessing my fellow priestess Spinner gifted us with last week.   We did it with arm gestures.   Please feel free to devise your own.

  "I offer you peace. I offer you love. I offer you friendship. I see your beauty. I hear your need. I feel your feelings. My wisdom flows from the Highest Source. I salute that Source in you. Let us work together for unity and love."

Bright Blessings as we approach the Rebirth of the Light!

Cathy Pagano is the author of a new book, "Wisdom's Daughters: How Women Can Change the World". Cathy trained at the C. G. Jung Institut-Zurich in dream interpretation, then got her M.A. in Counseling Psychology in Feminine Spirituality, and along the way became a certified Life Coach. As an astrologer and storyteller, she weaves the Cosmic Stories written in the stars and from The Bard's Grove, comments on emerging archetypal themes in movies. Cathy works with the tools of the imagination - dreams, alchemy, myths, astrology, symbolic language, storytelling, ritual - to awaken the Soul's wisdom.

I believe that Americans are called to a higher consciousness at this point in our history. We are called on to live up to our ideals and create the country our forefathers imagined. Inner consciousness needs to be acted upon for social justice.

Cathy believes that our writers and artists must take up our responsibility to create art that inspires, teaches and heals our humanity.

Cathy writes about political, psychological/spiritual, and cultural issues.
