The Greater Part of Loving: Astrology of Dec. 11 – Dec. 17, 2018

NB: All dates are US/Pacific time or UTC -8h. This week, messenger Mercury returns to the sign of Sagittarius (Dec. 12 to Jan. 4) post-retrograde, adding to the exaggeration, overestimation of capacity and glossing over of important details that the self-centered Sun plus jolly Jupiter in Sagittarius can represent. While these placements can be great for big picture visioning, some of us will need to be extra tidy with details and mindful to stop talk-talk-talking and actually take in other people’s information and experience. Good intentions can actually interfere with desirable outcomes. At the same time, the lightness, optimism and hopefulness offered by the next two weeks of Sagittarian emphasis is a welcome counterpoint to all the heaviness and intensity of the strengthening Saturn-Pluto conjunction, which will come within three degrees of exact next April. The closer planets are in aspect to each other, the more vivid their correlations become and the grim reaper energy of Saturn meeting the irresistible inevitability of Pluto is about as dramatic as it gets in terms of depth and …

Healing Our Relationship to Belief: Astrology of December 4 – December 10, 2018

We welcome in the first full week of December with the Sagittarius New Moon on Dec. 6 at 11:20pm US/Pacific, highlighting our ambitions to adventure, explore, learn and believe in something greater than ourselves. Sagittarius is considered the home sign of the royal planet Jupiter, whose significations are getting a signal boost since Jupiter entered Sagg about a month ago. As harsh as many realities are, Jupiter in Sagg can encourage us to seek out grounds for optimism or to (re-)establish our relationship with hope, meaning and our purpose in this lifetime. The quest for meaning is a primary quality of the sign of Sagittarius and those who have strong Sagg emphases will often find meaning in even the most challenging of circumstances, when all others would despair. Our relationship to the planet Jupiter reflects our sense of optimism, faith and hope for the future, as Jupiter correlates to good fortune and favor, the ability to grow, opportunities, and philosophy as “a love (philos) of wisdom (sophia).” This week’s New Moon in Sagg features storyteller …

The Big Push: Astrology of November 6 – November 12, 2018

***Check out Real Imaginal Daily Divinations on Instagram!*** After a year of traversing deep, dark Scorpio, the royal blood of Jupiter flows into his sparkly home sign of Sagittarius (Nov. 8), strengthening his power and lending favor to his activities. Jupiter’s positive nature is sometimes overemphasized and perhaps this is in keeping with his archetypal nature. And while he can correlate to unqualified success, good fortune, generosities, happiness and freedom, Jupiter’s general character simply describes expansion. Jupiter is the great magnifier, enlarging whatever he touches, hence his reputation for exaggeration, egoic grandiosity, excess, overdoing and overestimating things. Jupiter can therefore just as easily magnify misfortune as grant great benefits. In client work, I have even noticed a correlation between Jupiter square Moon natal aspects and the pattern of orphaned children along the mother line, whether mothers were physically or extremely emotionally absent to their children. That said, we can expect Jupiter’s time in Sagittarius (until Dec. 2019) to usher in some needed hope, optimism and belief in a higher power or higher good with which …
