Your Daily Cosmic Calendar for November 17th

Keep your eyes focused on the prize. Being in charge and reaching the top of the totem pole make sense following last night’s Mars move into Capricorn and with the Moon in this sign until tomorrow morning. Looking upward and onward is a key to enhancing your stature in the greater community and in your main fields of expertise.  Assisting you in reaching important worldly pinnacles are a creative and imaginative, 60-degree tie from Mars to Neptune (6:23AM PST) as well as the Inferior Conjunction of the Sun and Mercury retrograde at 26 degrees of Scorpio (7:48AM PST). A conjunction of this kind happens approximately every four months and can only occur when Mercury is in reverse and between the Sun and Earth. Visualize this astronomically as a line-up in the solar system of the Earth, Mercury, and the Sun. You can think of it as a New Mercury — when cosmic seed-ideas are seeking entrance into the eager minds of human beings.  Additional reinforcement is waiting in the wings later on as Mercury makes a subtle and yet still constructive, 30-degree rapport with Venus (6:20PM PST) while the Moon makes a supportive, 60-degree tie with Mercury (7:47PM PST). Catch up with correspondence, literary and educational endeavors.  Another void lunar cycle intervenes when the Moon makes a supportive, 60-degree link to the Sun (9:55PM PST). While this Moon-Sun contact may feel good and inspirational, it launches a void lunar twilight zone that lasts until 4:11AM PST tomorrow morning when the Moon enters service-oriented Aquarius. Keep a low profile as Saturday night morphs into Sunday morning.
