NEW MOON ECLIPSE begins METAL RAT MONTH

NEW MOON ECLIPSE in SAGITTARIUS
Thursday November 24 is a new Moon eclipse in the inspirational and truth-seeking Fire sign Sagittarius. Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, and the Node of the Moon (sense of fate) are all in Sagittarius, making this an encouraging time for new beginnings, creative innovations, and getting right to the heart of the matter. This new Moon is an eclipse, an absence of light when the shadow is seen. So use this Sagittarius fact-finding energy to dig a bit deeper to uncover the truth. The Moon trines Uranus today, an influence for something different that breaks routine, opportunities to be social, and perhaps a few unexpected surprises on this day of Thanksgiving.
On November 23, communication planet Mercury begins a three-week retrograde cycle until December 13. It is not recommended to take spirited bold initiatives during a Mercury retrograde cycle, so time to reassess and revise your plans for the future. Sagittarius is interested in the clear expression of the facts, making this Mercury retrograde cycle the time to speak directly and clarify your point of view. Sagittarius is ruled by the expansive planet Jupiter so you can widen your scope in all things. If you are indecisive about relationships, love planet Venus enters the Earth sign Capricorn on November 26 when commitments become more serious.
METAL RAT MONTH
This new Moon begins the month of the Metal Rat in Taoist Astrology. Rat is the clever, innovative leader of the Asian zodiac. Smart, sharp, analytical Rat has excellent organizational abilities and is good with money. So use this Rat month to organize your finances. In feng shui, the ideal Metal envirnment is clean, pristine, and organized. When taken to the extreme, too much Metal is like a hospital: startk, all white, anteseptic, and feels cold. You don’t have to be that meticulous, but cleanliness and tidiness bring luck in this Metal month during 2011 Metal Hare year. So take some time to clean up and add a sparkle to your home this holdiay season. Luck to live in balance while seeking the truth is for all, especially the Fire signs Sagittarius, Leo, and Aries and those born in Rat, Monkey, and Dragon years.
