Whats up Invisible Pal, April right here, and the date in the present day is November twenty seventh, 2023. Welcome to Episode 210 of the Massive Sky Astrology Podcast.

This week I’m celebrating 4 years of the Massive Sky Astrology Podcast. The primary episode was uploaded on November 26, 2019, simply hours earlier than a Sagittarius photo voltaic eclipse and two days earlier than Thanksgiving. So in lieu of a listener query this week, I’ll end this episode with a behind the scenes take a look at the present, the way it began, how the episodes are put collectively. I hope you’ll dangle round until the tip and have a pay attention.

This week, the Gemini Full Moon is tempered by Saturn in Pisces. Mercury sq. Neptune warns towards getting on our passion horse. Mercury enters Capricorn for a really lengthy keep, starting with a sobering side to Saturn. And, Venus opposes the North Node and surprises Pluto together with her power.

Gemini Full Moon (Nov. 27, 2023, 1:16 am PST)

The week begins with the Moon Report. And the Full Moon at 04º51’ Gemini on November twenty seventh at 1:16 a. m. Pacific Time. On this chart for the Full Moon, the Solar and Mars are nonetheless collectively in early Sagittarius, and are opposing the Moon, and all three of these are sq. Saturn, which in astrology is known as a T-square formation.

The Sabian image for this Full Moon is 5 Gemini, A radical journal. And the image for the Solar is 5 Sagittarius, An outdated owl up a tree. And what now we have within the distinction between these two Sabian symbols is the friction between what’s new, radical, rebellious, maybe even a bit satirical because it’s in Gemini. Versus the outdated owl up a tree, which symbolizes that knowledge that transcends the necessity to shock or to poke enjoyable. The Solar shifting by means of Sagittarius often is a time of yr once we’re taking an extended vary and philosophical view of issues.

However the Gemini Full Moon provides us an opportunity to loosen up a bit, to embrace humor or satire as I say, to poke holes in our hubris or the new air behind any rhetoric. The truth that the Solar and Mars and the Moon are all sq. Saturn in Pisces says that neither strategy is correct by itself, the owl up the tree or the unconventional journal, however that they have to be tempered by Saturn in Pisces qualities of empathy and accountability.

The T-square is a configuration involving planets in the identical modality, often, and the modality right here is mutable. Mutable indicators are versatile and changeable, and the T-square formation creates vitality and motion. So what we get when now we have mutable indicators in this sort of forceful configuration is one thing that’s a bit bit like a pinwheel, and it means we are able to get caught up in a sample of going round and round and round, and actually having bother gaining buy and getting something specifically achieved.

There are 4 indicators in every modality, cardinal, fastened, and mutable. And if you happen to discover the one which’s lacking within the T-square, it really works a bit bit like placing a stick within the spokes of a bicycle wheel to cease the bike. It provides us an outlet for all of this vitality that’s being churned up inside the T-square.

On this Full Moon chart, the lacking mutable signal is Virgo, which doesn’t have any planets in it in the meanwhile. So, if we discover ourselves caught at this Full Moon, which might typically occur with a T-square, the best way to get unstuck and to introduce a perspective that balances issues out, is to enter that Virgo mode, to check out issues logically and with an analytical eye.

The Full Moon is the midpoint of every lunar month. This lunar month started with that Scorpio new moon on November thirteenth. A extremely intense New Moon. So, at this Full Moon juncture, we are able to go outdoors on the evening of the Full Moon and every thing is illuminated. The sunshine tends to be so brilliant from the Full Moon that in actual fact, it might make it a bit bit troublesome to sleep. It’s a loud Moon.

It’s truly good to see this Full Moon in Gemini, which is a bit lighter. And I believe that it’s a fantastic alternative to attempt to loosen up a bit bit. To attempt to see the brighter facet of issues or the humorous facet of issues.

It’s not that we don’t have respectable issues which are absorbing us. However Gemini is the questioning moon and it has an open thoughts and provides us a possibility, I believe, to step again from all that depth that we’ve been as much as our elbows in since November thirteenth and ask new questions and invite new enter.

That is the Full Moon in a Lunar Section Household Cycle that started on the New Moon on Could thirtieth, 2022 at 09º03’ Gemini. The issues that have been initiated at that New Moon are additionally resonant presently. The primary quarter on this lunar section cycle was on February twenty seventh, 2023. That was a time when issues moved ahead, when there was motion that wanted to occur on this specific lunar section household cycle.

So now we’re on the Full Moon in that three-year cycle. And it’s a bit bit simpler for us to see what it was that was initiated at that New Moon. It may need been a bit bit troublesome for us to select from among the many many decisions that we had at the moment, which we regularly see as a attribute of a Moon in Gemini. After which we’ll nonetheless have one other alternative with the Final Quarter Moon on this cycle on August 26, 2024 to make another important push in the direction of taking motion to finish what we began at the start of the cycle.

Void-of-Course Moon durations

Let’s take a look at the Void-of-Course Moon durations for this week. On November twenty eighth, the Moon in Gemini opposes Mercury, its planetary ruler, at 5:03 pm Pacific Time. It’s Void-of-Course for nearly six hours after which enters Most cancers at 10:54 pm.

The Moon versus Mercury can be a distinction in feeling versus pondering, after which additionally what we really feel is true versus what our minds inform us is true. There are sometimes two completely different sorts of figuring out.

Now, on this case, as I mentioned, Mercury is the ruler of Gemini, the moon’s signal. In a means, that may imply that our instinct and our rational colleges are working nicely collectively. Nevertheless it may also be a bit just like the assumptions we make with any person that we’re very near, we’re so shut that we assume we are able to learn one another’s minds, and typically, we skip the required steps to essentially talk with that individual. It’s a bit little bit of a warning at this Void-of-Course Moon interval and one thing to consider. Are there a variety of conditions the place you’re making assumptions about what any person else is pondering due to an intuition you’ve gotten or since you’re simply very snug with them and really feel you already know them so nicely? It’s nonetheless good to be specific, to ask questions, and in addition to supply info.

On December 1st – isn’t it staggering to assume that we’re starting the final month of this calendar yr? – the Moon in Most cancers will oppose Pluto at 5:07 am Pacific Time. It’s Void-of-Course for about three hours after which enters Leo at 8 am.

The Moon in Most cancers connects by means of a really delicate and really emotional lens. We’re typically a bit extra sentimental, a bit extra simply damage when the Moon is in Most cancers. And when it opposes Pluto within the very powerful, pragmatic signal of Capricorn, we are able to get our emotions damage. And when Most cancers will get its emotions damage, the tendency is to retreat.

That is comprehensible, however attempt to use this Void-of-Course Moon interval to see what would occur if you happen to didn’t retreat, and if you happen to have been to refuse to let your self take offense.

And on December third, the Moon in Leo sextiles Venus at 6:11 pm Pacific Time. It’s Void-of-Course for about an hour and a half after which enters Virgo at 7:50 pm. The Moon connecting with Venus opens a dialogue between what we really feel we’d like with a view to be protected and safe, symbolized by the Moon, and, what we wish and want, symbolized by Venus. For instance, we’d actually need an individual, or some alternative. However we could be too reluctant to make ourselves weak by going after it.

This sextile side between the Moon and Venus truly makes that course of a bit simpler. Throughout this Void-of-Course interval, experiment with breaking the emotional behavior of hesitating to go after what you need.

Mercury sq. Neptune (Nov. 27, 2023, 5:28 am PST)

On November twenty seventh at 5:28 am Pacific Time, Mercury squares Neptune at 24º 54’ Sagittarius and Pisces. Mercury is on the Sabian image 25 Sagittarius, a chubby boy on a passion horse. A passion horse is a toddler’s toy. It’s a stick to the determine of a horse head at one finish, and also you fake to be driving the horse.

However it’s also a time period that refers to a favourite matter or a preoccupation. I’ve a few passion horses, not less than. Don’t get me began on folks tearing down 100-year-old craftsman bungalows to construct seven story excessive rises in outdated neighborhoods. I’m towards it. Getting on one’s passion horse, one’s pet peeve, can truly be annoying to others, even to those that typically share your opinions.

This side between Mercury in Sagittarius and Neptune in Pisces represents a conflict between these pet opinions and, however, the inclusiveness of Neptune. It’s a reminder to us that robust opinions are high-quality, however they at all times have to be blended with kindness, empathy, and a willingness to attempt to see all sides.

On a sensible degree, Mercury sq. Neptune is a very nice side for approaching inventive work. The muse isn’t essentially with you in a very clean and powerful means, however you’ll work onerous to make clear the which means of what you’re making an attempt to provide. Clearly and explicitly articulate what it’s that desires to be expressed.

Venus opposes the Moon’s North Node (Nov. 29, 2023, 9:16 am PST)

On November twenty ninth at 9:16 am Pacific Time, Venus opposes the North Node of the Moon at 24º04’ Libra and Aries. Venus is on the Sabian image, 25 Libra, Data within the image of an autumn leaf. And the North Node is on Sabian image, 25 Aries, A double promise.

If Venus is opposing the Moon’s North Node, it means it’s in a conjunction with the Moon’s South Node. When planets are transiting over the South Node, they supply a catalyst for releasing what we’re carrying round within the South Node that’s actually not serving to us transfer ahead.

Within the image for Venus, the autumn leaf, says nothing lasts eternally, however we might be stunning to the very finish. I’ve at all times thought, people who find themselves extraordinarily enticing and pondering how poignant and troublesome it should be once they encounter the pure getting older course of, they usually’re shedding a variety of the forex that their bodily magnificence and youth have offered for them. With Venus in Libra symbolizing that and going over the South Node says, you already know, it’s okay to surrender the crutch of what we signify to others by way of magnificence or our agreeable persona and even our wealth and the luxurious that we’re capable of afford different folks. It’s okay to have a look at letting go of that and shifting additional into the path of the North Node in Aries, which focuses extra on our deeds, our braveness, our willingness to take dangers and to do new issues as a substitute of resting on our laurels and our previous successes.

Venus going over the South Node of the Moon may also imply that essential folks from the previous present up on the scene. And typically they’re individuals who signify part of our relationship previous that we don’t keep in mind with a variety of fondness, that we predict, hmmm, perhaps I made some errors there.

Perhaps I let one other individual benefit from me. Or perhaps I grew to become too depending on the connection and perhaps both the individual or some reminiscence of the individual brings up outdated emotions in you. And right here is a chance to have a look at that. And take into account what you discovered from that relationship that may now make you progress ahead in a extra optimistic means.

Mercury enters Capricorn (Dec. 1, 2023, 6:31 am PST)

Mercury enters Capricorn on December 1st at 6:31 am Pacific Time. Prepare for a fairly prolonged keep of Mercury on this signal. It will likely be retrograde between December twelfth and January 1st, and for a few of that point it would again into Sagittarius – that’s between December twenty second and January thirteenth. Then it goes again into Capricorn for some time and doesn’t truly enter Aquarius till February 4th.

So now we have very long time of Mercury on this very pragmatic, linear, schedule pushed signal. It’s truly a fantastic alternative to take all of these Mercury and Sagittarius concepts and switch them into one thing actual. It’s a fairly tough signal to have a retrograde Mercury in, as the entire Earth indicators are, as a result of Earth indicators are fairly sensible. They like to start at A and finish at Z. And Mercury retrograde occasions aren’t notably nicely suited to taking that type of strategy.

Because the retrograde Mercury backs into Sagittarius for nearly three weeks between December twenty second and January thirteenth, we are able to return and perhaps discover a couple of of the concepts we didn’t get an opportunity to essentially take a look at rigorously when Mercury was in Sagittarius beforehand, and perhaps pick one or two that we actually need to put some vitality into. After which as Mercury goes again into Capricorn as its direct, now we have a while to get some issues achieved.

So, by way of drafting our plans for subsequent calendar yr, which is one thing that we start to need to do that time of yr. Mercury in Capricorn is mostly fairly good for that. However you don’t have all your concepts in place but. So wait till Mercury has completed going by means of Sagittarius once more. Then you may launch into drafting your plans, your schedules, your ultimate itinerary of what you assume you need to accomplish in 2024.

Mercury sextile Saturn (Dec. 2, 2023, 7:27 am PST)

And the subsequent day Mercury sextiles Saturn on December 2nd at 7:27 am Pacific Time. It’s time to query authority, however we do have to recollect to do it rigorously and respectfully. It’s a good time to take accountability for the phrases that you just use. Mercury in Capricorn is just not at all times tremendous delicate in the best way it expresses itself, however Saturn being in Pisces is there to verify that tendency and say, you don’t should be harsh to get your phrase throughout.

Mercury’s sextile Saturn can also be a quick alternative, actually, it’s solely in impact for a day or two, to provoke motion on considered one of your concepts. Bear in mind, we’re going to have that Mercury retrograde interval. Mercury will return into Sagittarius, so we don’t know the entire concepts essentially that we’d need to strategy, however this can be a time to seize considered one of them not less than and brainstorm with it and consider the belongings you would possibly be capable to do with that concept.

Venus sq. Pluto (Dec. 3, 2023, 5:29 am PST)

Lastly, this week, Venus squares Pluto on December third at 5:29 am Pacific Time. And this generally is a important side for relationships. Venus in Libra desires issues to be clean, good, well mannered, truthful. Alternatively, Pluto in Capricorn is just not involved with any of these issues. Pluto says, that is how it’s, and assumes that that’s the ultimate phrase.

However what’s fascinating about this specific side is, with Venus in Libra, whereas it would appear to be a dainty girl, it’s truly very robust in its personal signal. Magnificence and cash, says Venus in Libra, are actual energy.

It’s an fascinating side, and it may be a make it or break it time in sure relationships, particularly relationships the place there are energy struggles, the place there’s a energy differential.

However the ones which are on stable footing, which are primarily based on actual caring and compatibility, could make it by means of a facet like this. However simply know that it’s doable to see a bit little bit of a bump within the highway this week in {our relationships}.

Particular Section: Behind the Scenes on the Massive Sky Astrology Podcast

This week, as a substitute of my common listener query section, I’m celebrating the fourth anniversary of the podcast with a behind the scenes take a look at the present. How did it begin? What’s concerned with producing every week’s episode? I particularly need to share this half with you as a result of this present is listener supported, and people of you who very kindly make donations all year long, particularly at that podathon that I do throughout Labor Day week, actually ought to see how your cash is being spent.

Effectively, a few of you who’ve been round for some time will recall that again in 2019, the present began as a collaboration with Jen Braun, my producer and co-host. She had by no means produced a podcast, and neither of us had ever hosted one, so we kind of made it up as we went alongside. The podcasts that I really like listening to, are primarily based on two pals simply taking pictures the breeze, and that was our mannequin for the present to ship the weekly astrology, however with a wholesome dose of laughter and friendship. And we actually had a variety of enjoyable over the 107 episodes that we did collectively.

Then in January 2022, as of Episode 108, Jen had left the present and I used to be flying solo. The format of the present grew to become a bit extra focused on the astrology. And a section on the finish of every episode centered on both a mini-lesson or a listener query, which over time has type of melded into one, as a result of I’ll often take a listener query and go into it in a bit extra depth, to provide a bit mini lesson in regards to the matter of the query.

At the moment, after 4 years, 210 episodes, 4 Podathons, and greater than 400K downloads, listeners proceed to generously subsidize the manufacturing prices of the present, and it’s getting discovered by increasingly astrology lovers around the globe.

So, for these of you who could be curious, and particularly for anyone on the market who’s considered doing their very own podcast, right here’s what it appears like for me to provide a half hour episode every week.

It begins with the present sheet, which is a top level view for the present. It provides the intro, and the outro, and sections for every of the week’s major segments: The Moon Report, which provides the foremost lunation for the week, the Void-of-Course Moon durations, and in addition every vital planetary side of the week, plus the listener query. A typical present sheet will take me not less than an hour to place collectively. I’m wanting up the Sabian symbols, the lunar section household cycles, and so forth.

My recording setup is correct right here at my desk in my little house workplace. I used to file in a transformed TV armoire that Jonny had insulated with soundproofing tiles. To start with, I used a microphone that picked up each little little bit of background noise. And since I file in my suburban house, this grew to become an issue as a result of each aircraft flying overhead, each neighbor noise, even my husband turning on a faucet two rooms away would get picked up by the mic. I ultimately switched to a special microphone, which isn’t fairly so delicate, so I now not should file contained in the little field.

I file straight right into a free recording app known as Audacity. Altogether, I in all probability produce 35, typically 40 minutes of audio that will get lower right down to a 30 minute episode. After recording the episode, I pay attention all over. I take out the false begins, the issues I determine I don’t want. I restore any errors and I line up the little bits of interstitial music that play between segments.

Then I ship the recording to my great editor, Angela, who I used to be fortunate to search out by means of Fiverr. She goes by means of and she or he smooths out these musical parts. She equalizes the sound. She eliminates my heavy respiration and mouth noises. She places on the intro and outro. And by the best way, she’s the voice that you just hear on the introduction and within the outro. She is an excellent voiceover actor. It takes her a couple of days to ship again the ultimate audio file.

I run that file by means of an app known as Descript, which generates a full transcript for the present. However astrological jargon remains to be a bit onerous for AI to get proper, so I do go in and tidy issues up right here and there.

Then the transcript and the recording get despatched to my assistant, Stephanie, who creates the present notes for the episode. I’m going by means of these notes a ultimate time to provide you with the intro and the present title. I create particular art work for every episode, which seems on the web site and in social media.

Lastly, the episode and present notes are uploaded to Podbean, which is my podcasting host. I create the episode and transcript pages for the web site. And I schedule every thing to go dwell on Sunday evening at 9 pm Pacific Time. And the subsequent factor you already know, it seems, as if by magic, in your podcast feed.

So, that’s what goes on in an episode of the Massive Sky Astrology Podcast, and I’m so grateful that you just’re right here and listening, a few of you for the reason that very starting, and I do hope that we’ll be getting collectively every week for a lot of extra years to come back.

Subsequent week, I’ll be again to the listener query pile. And if you happen to, Invisible Pal, have a query you’d like me to reply on a future episode, simply depart a message of 1 minute or much less at SpeakPipe.com/ BigSkyAstrologyPodcast or e mail me at April(at)BigSkyAstrology(dot)com.
