The energetics Saturday and Sunday have three primary themes:

REPEATING PATTERNS:  Mars' energetic is a major influence this weekend, as it discharges the energy of "circular paths."  This brings things back or around again.  We can feel like we are back where we started.  The thought "here I go again" or "here it comes again" can pop up.  Habits and outworn or "old" thoughts and ways of coping can return. 

Mars is still in very tight conjunction with the Black Moon (the energy of rebirth but also the energy of the shadow side).  This can bring outburst of anger, flung words, and changes in relationships.  The tendency to project one's own issues or feelings onto others is higher.

Because the Moon is transiting (moving through) Libra this weekend, it amplifies any planet in that sign, in this case Mars and the Black Moon.  The times of the conjunctions are listed above, but remember that energy moves in waves, so it builds and wanes.  Oftentimes, the effects of the dynamic are observable at the very time of the astrological aspect, but not always.  So it is best to think of it as in effect all weekend while the Moon transits Libra.

Adding to the repeating patterns theme, on Sunday the Sun will discharge the energy of "a ground hog looking for its shadow on Ground Hog's Day."  The ground hog won't have to look hard for his shadow, given that the shadow is right in front of each of us this weekend.  The shadow side is our core fear, but it is an illusion.  It is based on a separated mind, not the truth of mind, which is that All Is One.  We are never separated and there is never anything to fear.  (In Gnostic terms, all that happens on this planet happens within the minds of the aeons Gaia Sophia and Thelete.  No fear.)

PATHS AND TOURS:  Continuing along this month's absolutely lovely theme of a woman drawing aside the darkness and paths opening, the conjunction of the Moon and the Black Moon happens at the degree of "miners emerging from a coalmine" (emerging from darkness into light), Venus will disseminate the energy of "a sight-seeing bus filled with tourists" (entering new territory), and the Sun will discharge "the pyramids and the Sphinx" (monumental tours of the mind).  Of course, Mars at "circular paths" reinforces the notion of trails.  (And on that note, we might walk a certain path over and over again, but we see new things each time.  It's definitely not a waste.)

Where are we going?  It's a natural question this weekend.  Saturn offers insight as it moves to the 9th degree of Sagittarius and "a mother leads her small child step by step up the stairs."  The Mother guides us.

COMMUNICATIONS:  This weekend the Earth is located at "two people living far apart in telepathic communication" and "two Dutch children talking."  Communications between people are highlighted, but so is "bending time" to suit our needs.  Space and time operate differently when the energetic of two people far apart telepathically communicating is in effect.  Do you need more time?  Expand it.  Play around with it. 

Above all, come from the heart with communications this weekend.  The Mars-Black Moon dynamic can incite ugliness, and who needs that?

SIGNS:  In the cycles of the Sun and Moon, we are in a month that is like a month-long Disseminating Moon phase - the time of communication and sharing.  The "Source Field" or "Information Field" around us is full and sending exactly what we need to know or see.  If we are paying attention, we will see the signs and we will receive the information.  It's there for the taking, and the universe will do whatever it can to make sure we get it.  Things that repeat and, of course, any animal sightings would be primary methods, as would dreams, and topics of conversation with others.

Mercury is located at "a bluebird standing at the door of a house," which is a good sign or good omen of good fortune.  Doors open things and houses are, well, what does a house represent to you?

There is one energetic to be aware of, primarily on Sunday.  Venus will move to "a broken bottle and spilled perfume."  This can prompt loss, either feelings of loss or actual events that occur or break open/apart.  Things that have built up can come to a head or spill out.  But this energetic always reveals what was inside, and wisdom can be gained from it.

It's quite a weekend, and those wise owls among us with the Sun or Black Moon in Aries or Libra are feeling it the most.  We are with you as your rebirth process continues, and remind that everything that is happening in your life is making you better (stronger, lighter, wiser), even though it may not feel that way. 

Friday's Report remains posted below for more information about the Mars/Black Moon energetic.  Also, remember that we are shifting perception and perspective is major ways through Monday, December 7.  From Monday, November 30th's Report:

Starting today and continuing through next Monday, December 7, the information field / source field/ music of the spheres / mind of God will provide ample information for us to "part the darkness" and re-join the sacred pathway to our inner selves (Home) that has been closed off.  Mercury activates the "seagulls looking for scraps" dynamic today; the Sun will reach this degree next Monday, at which time Mercury will be in conjunction with the Galactic Center (27 Sagittarius).  It's a personal and collective information revelation.  And it leads to revolutionary change.

To gain the maximum benefit from this energy, the questions to hold in the background over the next seven days to shift perspective with are:

What do I need to see that is holding me back?

Where am I accepting only scraps?

Where am I minimizing or diminishing myself or not seeing my worth?

What am I getting?

What need am I trying to fill?

What am I waiting for?

Have a great weekend, everyone, and please keep those beautiful snapshots of nature coming.  Wise owls in the Southern Hemisphere, please send us your Spring!
