SkyCode Horoscopes for November 20-26, 2017 1


Horoscopes to unlock the stars, not to be locked down by them.

Attuned

Neptune moves direct on Wednesday, my 50th birthday. Of course, that has special significance for me. But Neptune’s shift has powerful resonances for us all.

Neptune, horoscopes, weekly horoscopes, 2017 horoscopes, direct, prayer, meditation, Julia Cameron, The Artists Way, morning pages, Ralph Waldo EmersonNeptune’s glyph looks like a tuning fork. “Tune” is even in the planet’s name. Astrologers often focus on the spiritual attunements of the planet. But you can either tune in or off with Neptune. And that can happen with nearly anything.

Recently, in my Qur’an study class, we talked about how we fill our lives with so much noise, from push alerts on our phones to leaving the TV on, that we can’t hear God or our own minds. We can become consumed with talking about others that we leave little time to know more about ourselves. I’ve been guilty of this.

When Neptune went retrograde in June, I said there’s a stronger interest in piercing mysteries or any other veils over the truth. This is when we might feel most the danger of the truth and prefer our illusions in reaction to just that. With Neptune moving direct, we have another chance to face our illusions and draw more on the truth.

But the most powerful truths are personal. Those are the ones we know are true in our very bones. We might feel that Truth, with a capital T, is vindicated when a scandal or investigation reveals the corruption of a politician or leader. Perhaps those moments are easier to focus on than our own corruptions or missteps. We can believe we’re “woke” when more tuned into social and political realities than attuned to Neptune’s truths about our own spiritual or psychological lives. But that can change.

Meditation is one way to explore and experience your own mind. But that’s not the only way. I love Julia the “Morning Pages” concept from Julia Cameron’s best-selling book, The Artist’s Way.

Of course, therapy is another vital way to engage your mind and have it engaged. Sometimes it’s not enough just to draw on your friends for help. If your own mind seems too much that you must tune out by talking about others or nothing with friends, then perhaps you’d benefit by talking with a professional.

Prayer is another way. But I want to invoke a vision of prayer that I share with how Ralph Waldo Emerson expressed it. He said,

“Prayer that craves a particular commodity, — anything less than all good, — is vicious. Prayer is the contemplation of the facts of life from the highest point of view. It is the soliloquy of a beholding and jubilant soul. It is the spirit of God pronouncing his works good. But prayer as a means to effect a private end is meanness and theft. It supposes dualism and not unity in nature and consciousness. As soon as the man is at one with God, he will not beg. He will then see prayer in all action. The prayer of the farmer kneeling in his field to weed it, the prayer of the rower kneeling with the stroke of his oar, are true prayers heard throughout nature, though for cheap ends.”

May Neptune’s direct motion signal greater attunement to yourself for the benefit of us all

Read on for the SkyCodes for your particular moon, ascendant, Sun or key planet of your chart.

 

SCORPIO
Moon, ascendant, Sun or strong Mars in birth chart

I’ve said that Scorpio can be one of the most egotistical signs of the Zodiac. It’s not because many with that sign prominent are overtly arrogant. It’s because Scorpio often spends a lot of energy on self-regard. It’s usually more to protect a sense of self. But sometimes a Scorp will decide that the best defense is an offense too. Fear is a moveable feast for the ego. Love and inspiration instead feed the soul. Step around yourself and more into what you love or what inspires you. Rumi is a master at describing and talking about this. Read him for clues. You might also contemplate more how to love the mystery rather than feel overwhelmed by the mysterious or fear losing your own intrigue.

Affirmation:
I feed my soul with love and inspiration, not my ego’s fears.

SAGITTARIUS
Moon, ascendant, Sun or strong Jupiter in birth chart

Excavate secrets closer to home. Talk to older relatives about their pasts, mining their minds for more understanding about who they are and from where they’ve come. Probably they have thoughts they’ve wanted to get off their chests for a long time. You don’t have to fish for scandals, though those could crop up. You might see other connections you didn’t expect, like your Uncle Buddy was a chess player like you. The breadth of who you are isn’t necessarily “out there” in the world. There are worlds to know in your very genes.

Affirmation:
I explore the secrets and feelings of those close to home who want to share.

CAPRICORN
Moon, ascendant, Sun or strong Saturn in birth chart

Make room for more “woo” in your life. Woo has a romantic connotation like when you seduce someone. So, add some spice and sweetness in your game for someone special in your life. Or who you’d like to see as a special someone. But woo also means mystical, unscientific, and less practical things. Don’t be so quick to think the world must make sense. Or that the world even does make sense. Read a memo backwards, for example. I guarantee you’ll see that memo in a new light. And that’s the whole point of embracing the woo: look more for what’s special around you. It’s there. But you won’t find it trying to keep things regular. Be irregular.

Affirmation:
I woo the regular into the extraordinary.

AQUARIUS
Moon, ascendant, Sun or strong Saturn in birth chart

Be petty. But not with your feelings or anyone else’s. Act like your own worst nightmare accountant. You’ve likely been wasting money on propping up a stupid hope to address a problem rather than creating a practical solution. For instance, you decided you want to work out. You pay $30 monthly for a gym membership. But you never go to the gym. Freeze your account or chuck it. Spend the money you’re wasting on equipment to work out at home. Or figure out a regimen that will work for you, like this. Most likely, your inner asshole accountant will scrutinize all your quick fixes…that never fixed a damn thing. Now you can and should fix what you can.

Affirmation:
I scrutinize quick fixes that cost more to create solutions that sustain me better.

PISCES
Moon, ascendant, Sun or strong Jupiter in birth chart

You might need to “disappear” as the week unfurls. Partly because so much will appear in your own mind and heart and it’ll be hard to know what’s yours and what belongs to others. Your empathy is in high gear. That’s great when you need to comfort a friend in distress. But it could be damn distracting when you must have a report on a supervisor’s desk in the morning…and it’s already 3 am. You’ll need to be your own zookeeper rather than let your life become a zoo. Keep a close eye on the clock and stay as much on schedule as you can. If you feel in a funk, ask if this is your funk or someone else’s. If it’s your funk, do something that relaxes you. If it’s someone else’s, burn some sage or Palo Santo. Or take a bath with Epsom salts. Coming back into your body through your senses will ground you.

Affirmation:
I create boundaries when I feel boundless or bound by burdens I don’t have to carry.

ARIES
Moon, ascendant, Sun or strong Mars in birth chart

Astrologers don’t talk enough about how intuitive and psychic you are. This might be to distinguish you from Pisces, the sign preceding yours. But you also don’t like to be mired too much in your head or thoughts about the future. That often stokes anxiety and too much anticipation for you. And anticipation leads to disappointment. You’d rather just be ready in the moment. Fair enough. Yet, you shouldn’t ignore the dreams and intuitions you have now. You’re not completely on your own here. The Cosmos is dropping messages to keep you on the path toward the victory you want most. Keep an eye and ear out for those.

Affirmation:
I heed the messages the Cosmos feeds my intuition about my path to victory.

TAURUS
Moon, ascendant, Sun or strong Venus in birth chart

You really just want to mind your own business in peace. You don’t need to be clammed up in a mountain or a forest for that, of course. But you dream about enjoying the “good life” with friends, lovers, colleagues, and family without too much bother. The problems arrive, though, when bother eventually shows up. The bubble of your dream bursts then, and you’re pissed. That’s when you can become the raging bull. There could be a moment for that this week. Yet, let’s return to the dream. Was the dream more about your happiness? Did it really include correct beliefs of how others sought their own happiness? Think about those questions more before you let more rage and disappointment settle in.

Affirmation:
My “good life” dreams of happiness are unflappable if they’re truly my own.

GEMINI
Moon, ascendant, Sun or strong Mercury in birth chart

You need more clarity with your dreams and goals, especially on the career front. It’s almost too easy to focus on others when things go off track with work, like you being passed over for an expected promotion because of stupid office politics that you refuse to play. Perhaps you’re not taking important things seriously enough. Or you’ve been banking more on a “hope” or wish than a real plan. The world doesn’t have to work solely on your terms. You must work your mental magic for what’s desired with what’s required. You need to understand and acknowledge what those requirements are.

Affirmation:
I understand what’s required of me to work my plans better for reaching what I want.

CANCER
Moon, ascendant, Sun or strong Moon in birth chart

Curiosity is what will bring you out of your comfortable shell. Some might even call it nosiness. One way or another, the world rushes into your waters. But once your quiet has been disturbed, you’ll likely not miss it much. You’ll crave more answers for the growing crop of questions you have put off, perhaps about your own religious or philosophical beliefs. Keep focused on one question at a time, though. Give yourself time to chew comfortably on things. Otherwise, you might feel overwhelmed emotionally. Then you’ll shut down and miss the real intellectual growth you can have now.

Affirmation:
I slowly harvest the crop of questions rising in my mind.

LEO
Moon, ascendant, Sun or strong Sun in birth chart

Welp, nothing can shake you out of a lazy self-indulgence like thoughts of your own mortality. This doesn’t mean you risk a brush with death this week. Perhaps just the opposite. Life could be groovy now. But thoughts that these good times will end strike you harder. But that’s when you have to be clear on the things you can control and release what you can’t. Worrying about things you can’t control can shake you into motion. But anxiety is a volatile, short-term fuel for action. It’s better to work up to a spiritual resolve to do your best with what you can. It’ll keep you focused. Anxiety frequently prompts us to lose focus. There are always new things to worry about. But devotion to what you love and what you want to see love you long after you’re gone will keep you working at your best and for the best.

Affirmation:
I embrace fleeting moments of happiness as reminders to stay devoted to what I love and want to see love me back for a long time.

VIRGO
Moon, ascendant, Sun or strong Mercury in birth chart

As you’ve taken time to speak your piece to have peace recently, take time now to see and hear what others are saying to you. They likely aren’t saying what you think they are. That could be taken a couple of ways. One way is that you’re projecting your thoughts onto them. Perhaps you’ve put someone on a pedestal rather than letting him or her be the flat-footed person he or she is. That doesn’t make him or her bad. Just imperfect as you are too. Another possibility for miscommunication is that someone is straight up lying to you. With both possibilities, you’ll need to pay attention to details. But with a liar, be swift in cutting him or her off once you have enough evidence for the truth.

Affirmation:
I heed details with someone in high esteem to be sure I’m seeing clearly, not as I wish to see.

LIBRA
Moon, ascendant, Sun or strong Venus in birth chart

Near Mercury retrogrades, like now, people tend to become frustrated that things don’t work the way they usually do. But they’re missing Mercury’s call to refresh their workflows. That’s when it’s good to tap into your “beginner’s mind.” When you let all things be new in your mind, then you don’t have the pressure to make things fit. You can be more open to your intuition. You allow yourself to be more in a flow because you let more pass through and around you. This won’t make you passive. You’re more responsive because you can see more as they are, not as you wish them to be. If you fight this openness, though, you do run the risk of wishing for more and working with less.

Affirmation:
I keep my mind open and fresh for insights and intuitions about my workflows.
