I’m having a super-annoying morning. It’s too hot where I live (a relative rarity), and I can’t sleep when it’s hot. That makes me cranky. Also, I’ve had to reboot my computer a couple of times since I got out of bed because nothing seems to be working as it should. I’m ready to put my fist through the screen. Why is this happening today of all days?
The reason that I have no patience whatsoever this morning is because the transiting sun is opposite my natal Mars, and transiting Mars is still opposing my ascendant. Anyway, as I was waiting for the aggression that I’m experiencing to abate, I had a look at my progressed chart to see if anything interesting is happening, and I realized that my progressed moon is about to change signs in just a couple of weeks!
It’s moving into Cancer, where it is not only more comfortable than it is when it’s travelling through Gemini, but it’s also the sign where my natal moon resides. That means that my progressed lunar return is imminent! It happens in the second week of November.
I should have been paying attention to this upcoming event, but I’ve been distracted by so many of the other things occurring in my chart — especially all the planetary action on my IC. Jupiter has recently backtracked into my third house, making me feel as if I could be taking the opportunity unemployment has afforded me to write more, while Pluto is stuck on my IC making me feel as if I can’t get anywhere when I do try to write. Saturn’s retrograde phase in my fourth house isn’t encouraging me to make the most of my home-based sideline, either. It’s as if I am permanently stuck in the “planning phase.”
But in the second week of November, when the progressed moon conjoins my natal moon, Jupiter makes its direct pass over my IC. In fact, on the exact same day Jupiter makes its final conjunction with Pluto mere minutes away from my fourth-house cusp, the progressed conjunction occurs. That lunar event is something that only happens every twenty-eight years, so it’s kind of amazing that it coincides with another conjunction that happens about every ten or eleven years. And on top of all of that, Venus conjoins my ascendant on the same day.
It’s a huge shift in the astrological climate, and it’s something that should truly invigorate me. I actually love the weather in late fall and early winter in this godforsaken place where I live. It makes me feel alive! Not only that, I can’t wait to feel as if I’m moving forward again. I know that 2020 has been a shitty year for everyone, but I can’t catch a break with all these planets making tense aspects to the angles of my horoscope. My chart is a fucking mess right now!
Anyway, I’m delighted to know that the progressed moon is going to be a part of this big change in the weather for me. It’s going to be invigorating, like getting caught in the November rain. I can’t wait!
