full moon. In Gemini, that’s number one. Venus conjunct the south node. We also have Venus squaring Pluto before she enters Scorpio. So it’s a pretty strong Venus week, but also full moons always bring in the oppositions that are inherent in relationship.
And it’s usually like, if you can’t Dig into the opposition for yourself. You usually need a mirror. You usually need somebody outside of you to be able to balance something off that so that you can see more clearly.

Theme of the Week
Jamie: The week that we’re signing off on, what would be the theme that you would say that we’re stepping into right now? So
Nura: finding the right people to talk to, so that you can come to more expansive understanding, that is really what has been coming
Jamie: through for me.
Finding the right people to talk to look and I’m everyone listening. You’re in the right place. It’s like, you’re, you’re on your way. Right? So, like, what would be your suggestions to finding? Is that kind of like finding your tribe? Is that what you’re thinking about? Are like safe events? I think it could be.
Nura: It will depend on where you have certain transits moving through your chart, but there’s such a strong theme of, um, one on one relationships as well. So, I have a few [00:04:00] different transits that are coming to mind specifically about that, that I know we’ll talk about more, but really, um, The purpose of Sagittarius season energy is for this consciousness expansion, but in order to come to what is the highest expression of that right now, I think mirroring and really understanding who we are allowing to be our mirrors as well is going to be a really big theme.
Jamie: Um, I love that. And as a Sagittarius rising in a stack said house, like I can tell you personally, I’ve already been experiencing that. Like I was working on that, like moving up to this, like really noticing what I let into my energetic field. Like, was I addicted to the negative emotion or the positive emotion and how could I interchange that or work with that? So I love that that’s kind of being pulled into the collective.
Transits & Tips
Jamie: So what are some of the biggest transits we’ll look at this week that are influencing this theme?
Nura: So full moon in Gemini, that’s number one. We also have Venus [00:05:00] conjunct the south node. We also have Venus squaring Pluto before she enters Scorpio. And then we also have Mercury entering Capricorn. So it’s a pretty strong, Venus week, but also full moons always bring in the oppositions that are inherent in relationship.
And it’s usually like if you can’t dig into the opposition for yourself, you usually need a mirror. You usually need somebody outside of you to be able to bounce something off of so that you can see more clearly.
So like with a full moon in Gemini, that’s like a dualistic kind of energy or, or like a, a changing energy mutable, like, do you have any tips or tips for the audience about how to work with a full moon energy this week?
Anything that they wanna keep in mind with that elevated energy?
Nura: I think it’s staying open. One of the highest expressions of Sagittarius is being open-minded, and then with Gemini it’s curiosity. So open-mindedness, curiosity. I think that can really carry us through.
Jamie: Okay. Awesome. So [00:06:00] staying open and being very curious and then like Venus into Scorpio, do you have any feels about that energy?
I love that though. I think it’s where we get, we get to go deep, but.
Nura: Yeah, that’s really what it is. It’s going in deep. I think with after having all of these conversations, how do we go in and emotionally process it? So I think first with Venus and Libra, we become more aware of who is mirroring, who we are allowing to mirror.
Who are we talking to? Who are we reaching out to and leaning into for support? And also whose voices are we allowing to maybe… Create some sort of projection field around us of around who we are in our own values. And then when we move into Scorpio, now we start to process that and integrate it and feel it and really see, okay, how, what if that is true?
What if that actually passed the test? Like we, we start to go into the alchemical cave of, okay, what starts to pass the test of what I’m taking [00:07:00] with me into the future?
Jamie: Yeah, that’s, that’s rich. I love that. We can take a little bit of, um, an internal dive. I just keep thinking about like, like your whole theme, like finding the right people to speak to or talk to what, what would be something to look for to know that you’re talking to the wrong people?
Like what triggers would you notice so
Nura: one of the shadows of. Libra is projection and codependence. And so if we are finding that we are feeling pretty dependent, almost hyper dependent on what somebody else’s projection of us is, that could be an indicator of like, maybe this either isn’t the right person to be talking to.
Maybe we’re putting a lot of expectations onto other people to understand us. And something that I’ve really noticed in working with Libra Energy is that Not everybody has the same capacity to hold space for us, and even if that person in some moments in time has the capacity to [00:08:00] hold space for you, maybe in that moment that you’re trying to talk to them, they don’t.
So I think there’s an awareness of, I can’t, I can’t look at every single interaction, even with the same person. on equal footing in terms of how much of myself I’m able to open up or how much truth or reliable information I’m always able to get. Like, we have to keep coming back to these relationships in the present moment and not just having these expectations or even, you know, the need for somebody else to understand.
And I think that’s where we’re going to see a lot of the shadow of Libra, especially because Venus will be with the South Node. There’s some sort of shadow
tendency coming into play here. We want to look from, really observing the shadow of Libra, especially because Venus will be with the south note. There’s some sort of shadow tendency coming into play here. Or we want to look… Get not only the relationships with specific people, but our own relationship dynamics.
Like maybe where do we have a little bit too [00:09:00] much dependence on what somebody else is saying or what somebody else is thinking of us that can sometimes feel a little bit disempowering to our own self understanding. Like we can rely too much on the projections of others and start to believe that that’s who we are or that that’s our value.
And the square to Pluto is just echoing that. It’s like, there’s something karmic here. There’s something rippling from deep beneath the surface that maybe we’re not always consciously aware of, but we become aware of it through our conversations. They’re just listening to, okay, am I starting to engage in a pattern of conversation with somebody where to them?
to define me or to give me the answer, right? Because if Libra does not like to be in indecision, it’s like, I want to know, I want to make this pros and cons list. I want to understand what’s happening. But, [00:10:00] um, it’s, you know, we can value the information that we receive from somebody else, but we also need to be able to turn it into you.
So it’s finding that balance.
Jamie: Beautiful. And I can see like this, you know, really playing out in like one to one relationships, but I’m also thinking too, that like in our modern age, unfortunately, a lot of our relationships are online. Are there like, I posted this and only so many people liked it or so many people engaged it or whatever.
Like we’re looking at the response from the collective are people that we like, Oh, well, no one said this and they like this or vice versa. , do you think this energy will kind of play into that? I think so.
Nura: Absolutely. I think there’s a lot of ways that that could come up. So, in an example of, maybe somebody disagreeing with something that you wrote, or having just a different opinion, I think it’s, first of all, just having factual awareness of what’s going on.
Like, is this a person that you continually engage with online, or is this a random stranger? Who just is really opinionated. I think sometimes [00:11:00] we, we kind of say, Oh, everybody’s equal on the internet, but it’s like, but that’s not real. Like, that’s not true. Like we, I don’t think we should be necessarily, giving everybody equal power of, you know, their opinion influencing us.
I think it’s always, we have to be more discerning, and, and more able to, to spot the nuance and the details. It’s like, oh, my friend who’s commenting to something online, I’m going to listen maybe a little bit deeper, or I’m going to lean into the nuance of what they’re saying. And maybe when it’s a perfect stranger, I’m going to take it with a grain of salt.
I’m going to, I don’t know how much we’ve, you know, how much of my content they’ve engaged with. I don’t know what’s going on in their life. Like there’s so many missing details. And I think that sometimes we just take it at the surface level like that’s sometimes the another shadow of Libra is to stay in the shallow end, so we’ll take things on the surface level and make it mean something.
And I think with the south node involvement here, there’s an opportunity to actually let go of some of that. [00:12:00] It’s almost like we can see where have we been really attached to. You know, if it, if we’re talking about social media, like attached to likes or followers or people engaging and feeling like that’s building up our worth, maybe we’re getting the opportunity to see, you know, maybe it’s not about quantity.
Maybe it’s more about quality. Like I want to have real meaningful engagement with people rather than just, um, you know, people just trolling
Jamie: or Oh, I love that quality over quality. I think that that’s a brilliant line right there, because that’s something that I do think that gets overlooked and, and the richness of it.
And just, you know, I think I’ve worked with the public a long time and I’ve noticed that sometimes we’re all, we’re all human and we all kind of get into our own funnels. We all see things a certain way. And a lot of times when like some kind of lashing or some kind of comment has come that way. A lot.
It doesn’t have anything to do with you. Like they’ve had a fight with her partner that day. They’ve had a bad day at work or whatever. And you are the source. You’re the source that it comes out at. [00:13:00] And then, you know, if you, you bat back, it doesn’t. I don’t think it helps anything. So it’s just kind of like being like taking the, like rising above the situation.
Like, you know, Libra does like to balance it. It does have to stay shallow, but it’s like, well, this matter in five years, like, what, what is your opinion want to be? And there’s that whole other train of thought that’s like, um, be hang around with people or be with people. Are noticed and watch people’s opinions of who you want to become.
And be like, so like, if you start like looking down or pulling from negative energies or shadows, like, How is that empowering you? Like, like, If you’re gonna, like if you’re, if you’re trying to balance in that Hebrew way or try to like, Be dualistic and see both sides of it. Like in the Gemini moon, like I see.
How you see this and I see how I see this but it could be a trick of light. Like this is your opinion. Now will it be your opinion? You know, if you had more facts. And then everyone else has a different, we know from astrology, every one of us has a very unique, original, one of a kind. Chart that won’t be repealed, repeated for millions of years.
Only you’re the only person on the planet with your perspective. So don’t be ashamed to [00:14:00] share it. And like, also, I think the, the Gemini curiosity will probably serve as well. Like, Oh, I wonder why I wonder if they’re having a bad day. I’m going to send you, I don’t know who you are, you know, number such and such with no profile picture, but I really do hope you have a great day.
Kind of like
Nura: absolutely. Yeah. And I, there’s something interesting too, that comes up in all of that. It’s like in this digital age, we have very interesting assumptions and expectations of other people where we think because all knowledge, all information is readily available. We have this. Expectation that everybody should know everything and have the same, very similar opinion about it.
And I think we’re always kind of working through the shadow of that. Um, and so that could be something, especially with the full Moon from Sun and Sagittarian shining on Gemini, where we’re seeing that, like where are we making assumptions and yeah. And how can that also connect with Libra? Because Sagittarius and Libra are sextile, just like Moon and Gemini, and Libra are sextile archetypes as well.
So there’s this air and fire, and how are they sort of [00:15:00] mixing? And really, I just think there’s an opportunity here to just come to greater clarity. I mean, life can be confusing enough. Yeah. Yeah. How can we make it a little bit more simplified for ourselves .
Monday, November 27
Jamie: Well, I’m so curious how this is going to unfold over the day. So like, let’s dive in Monday. What is going on on Monday and how can we work with that?
Nura: So Monday, November 27th, is the full moon in Gemini. It’s at 4 degrees, 51 minutes, Gemini. It’s very early morning, so really we might even already be feeling into this over the weekend, leading up to it.
So involved with the full moon, we also have Mercury and Sagittarius, Neptune, and Pisces. So that’s already accentuating some of the themes that we already brought in around confusion, clarity, and focus. This full moon is also square, uh, Saturn at zero degrees Pisces. And then the sun is conjunct Mars in [00:16:00] Sagittarius.
So there’s a lot of pieces involved with this full moon, which I think is just perfect when we’re talking about Gemini. Gemini is pretty good at multitasking. And together, I think one of the highest integrations of Sagittarius and Gemini is the ability to hold space for a lot going on. They’re mutable signs.
They both are very flexible and adaptable. And where I see some of the challenge in this full moon is perhaps feeling kind of moored in space. Right? If we’re thinking about that Mercury square Neptune involved, if we’re thinking about the full moon square Saturn and Pisces, um, the combination of Sagittarius and Pisces can sometimes be, um, kind of ungrounding.
Like sometimes that’s what we want. We want to tap into our imagination. We want to tap into the greater fantasies of life, the possibilities, the greater truths. But a lot of times with Sagittarius and Pisces, they are not [00:17:00] things that can be proven. They are theoretical. It is inherently ungrounding in that sense, if you go too far.
So there’s something I think about the Gemini kind of bringing in the balance of, okay, like, can we be scientists about this? Can we find facts? Can we find details that maybe prove these theories? So they can work really well together in that sense, and maybe help us feel a little bit more, uh, rooted and anchored into truth.
This, uh, full moon in Gemini is really highlighting the axis of information and ways of knowing, perception, and truth. So what’s our relationship with all of that right now? It’s always changing. And these mutable signs are going to, you know, point out, okay, what is being changed about my beliefs? What is, uh, maybe coming into my field, either something brand new or something that I’m remembering.
And is it coming through from [00:18:00] the people in my life? Is it coming through from the books I’m reading, or the podcasts I’m listening to? Where is it coming from, and how am I able to allow it to expand my vision, my consciousness? So I think it’s a really beautiful way to start the week. Full moon’s coming.
Yeah, yeah, it’s super potent. It’s a lot of energy, and we’re just kind of hitting the ground, um, running. Really?
Jamie: Yeah. Absolutely. It sounds like it. So sun Mars, do you feel like what kind of nuance do you think that brings into it? Is that anything? Um, like what’s a positive way to use sun Mars, I guess is my Sagittarius question.
Nura: I think of activation. Okay. And maybe finding and connecting with either theories or beliefs or perceptions that are energizing. That’s a question that I often use, especially in my work with clients. It’s, it’s like when we’re in, you know, when we’re faced with a lot of options, whether it’s Big life choices or day to day, small life choices of what am I going to do first?
[00:19:00] I always think do the thing that is more energizing first, because then you’re going to have more energy for the subsequent things that you do later. It’s just a very practical offering. Right. And that’s, I think Mars can help us to connect with that. Mars can help, you know, if we look into Mars in our own natal chart, we can see, okay, this is what is energizing for me.
This is my way of moving and being that helps. me to feel really alive. And then with the sun and Mars, both being planets associated with vitality, them coming, um, the conjunction was earlier and in Scorpio, but they’re still kind of hanging out together in these early degrees of Sagittarius. And I think they can Be very energizing and maybe paying attention to the beliefs because Sagittarius is a sign that points to beliefs.
What are the beliefs that are energizing for you? And noticing, you know, are there beliefs that are taking away energy? Are there beliefs that are maybe unnecessarily activating or [00:20:00] triggering? Like we’re gonna have a whole process and spectrum of experience in relation to these transits. But you know noticing, okay, what are, what am I believing?
What am I thinking about? That is leaving me feeling energized. Okay, make note of that. What am I believing and thinking about that is leaving me feeling drained and exhausted and just look at that. Just be aware of that.
Jamie: Brilliant. I love that. I love that balance of that too, because I do think that like, I love what you said about the vitality of it, because it almost gives you the courage to kind of keep going.
And then when you look at. Um, the wisdom side of it or the truth side. It’s like, it’s like the, the courage to look at something, a truth that maybe you’re not ready for. Like, that’s something I think we’ve been in the mix of for a little bit, like, well, this is the truth of it. This is what the books look like.
This is the bottom line here. And this is what you’ve contributed. And this is how. You can pivot and change, but having that, that courage and that duality and that flexibility, good stuff. Love it. All right. Well, that’s a lot for Monday. What are we doing on Tuesday?
Tuesday, November 28
Nura: So Tuesday, we’re still in that perhaps, you know, [00:21:00] full moon hangover energy is still in the processing and reflecting of it all.
Uh, by this time, the moon in Gemini moves forward in the sign and we’ll try and Venus and the South node in Libra, which I’ll be speaking more about that Venus South node for. Uh, the following day, but I think the moon trine is going to just help us have more emotional awareness. So with all the themes that we’ve brought in already around truth and ways of knowing and conscious conversations and relationship dynamics and projection, the moon in Gemini trine, Venus and South Node in Libra, I think is just going to bring emotional.
Awareness of all of that. So we might feel, especially with moon and Gemini after a full moon, we might feel very social or we might feel very, um, just like more excited. Like letting our curiosity take us somewhere. Whether I know for me, it’s like, if I just need to get out sometimes and go be in public, public spaces, just to tap into the collective energy, it’s like, Oh, do I [00:22:00] want to go to a cafe or a library or just somewhere where it’s like, maybe I’ll just.
bump into a stranger and strike up a conversation with them. And that’s usually how I tend to feel when the moon is in Gemini. Yeah.
Jamie: Yeah. I love it. Like it’s like some parts of the world, like, you know, people still do that, but it’s interesting. Last night I was at dinner and I noticed that these two tables were talking to each other and I thought that they were friends, but they had just met.
There was two older couples. And I think that they commented something and then like, by they were chatting when we, when we got there and they were. And I was like, wow, like that, that’s a connection right there. Cause you could hear that there was some kind of energetic, I just wanted to ask them for their charts, but I love that.
Like, yeah, I’m just gonna start up a conversation. I’m gonna see how, like, oh, you’re, you’re going through that too. This is my experience too. And, um, really working with whatever the, the full moon brought to your life, like getting excited about that. Let’s see that now, where do I go? All right.
Nura: Yeah, and I think, too, with the Venus South Node, there could be an opportunity to bump into an old [00:23:00] friend, bump into somebody that maybe you haven’t seen in a while, and it reminds you of a part of yourself you haven’t been in contact with
Jamie: in a while, so.
This mirror, this haunting mirrors of the past, like, Oh, I, I remember you, I know who you are. Cause I was that at your age, I was there too. And then you have that like knowing look on your face. Like I know what’s coming next for you can use that Gemini curiosity to ask, you know, your mentors or be a mentor to other people, but yeah, perfect.
Nura: November 29th is when we have the Venus South Node conjunction, exactly, and that is at 24 degrees of Libra. So thinking about where you have that in your chart will be very potent. Venus is also in application. She’s applying soon in a couple days to that square with Pluto.
So I would kind of bring some of that conversation into this because both South Node and Pluto have strong resonance with karmic Themes of our [00:24:00] life, and a lot of times looking at the unconscious, looking at where we have become very, um, attached to patterns, where do we kind of get to break up with the familiar in favor of what will actually be in higher service.
So, thinking about, um, all of the relationship dynamics, whenever I’m tapping into Libra, I’m thinking about all of the nuance of contrasting values and the polarity and the paradox, and we’ve already been working with that a lot, especially since the eclipse season with the south node and Libra, and we get to work with this for the coming year, so.
And so we’re already processing a lot, but having a personal planet or an inner planet come and connect with the south node, especially the node that she rules, that is the node that she’s ruling, and so she’s a core guide for this time. I think she really just wants us to look at our past relational patterns and then dynamics and just really get clear on [00:25:00] how we got here.
I almost feel like With the South though there’s always a bit of a process of letting go and learning how to surrender and feel safe in our surrender. But Venus can make things feel a little bit more harmonious. It’s like we can, um, we can feel more safe to let go if that’s what’s needed. Like maybe we won’t feel like we need to hold on so much because we’re in more of that trust that this is actually benefiting me, this is benefiting you, this is benefiting all of us if I’m able to just Soften into this change, and that’s usually what comes up to and Pluto is involved.
The fear of change. It’s like we want to hold on like death grip to these patterns that we’ve become so accustomed to that. Yeah, I think Venus might just make it a little bit more easeful.
Jamie: Yeah, I can definitely see that too. And it like helps you, it almost gives you like this. Um, there’s a reason for everything kind of quote, you know what I mean?
Venus is like, or like that old, like country song, like think like by gruff [00:26:00] books at the dance, like, we had the dance, like we went through this experience together. This was our time. This was our purpose. And this, this led me to this. Point. And I love how it’s kind of like a soothing bomb because like the, the eclipses in the fall were a little, they’re drastic, collectively and personally, and, um, it has, and they had us looking at our past and our future.
So I think Venus, I like how this, this energy is going to kind of come in and be like, you know, what, you know, life is life has its challenges. Um, but this history, this rich part of it, it’s going to carry on with you. Like it’s, you’re not really letting it go. It’s woven into your energy, into your spirit and everything has a time and everything has a season and.
Yeah. I love that. So I can also see like people from the past coming through, coming back around to help you like elevate you to get you to that new horizon. Like there may be someone that you’ve been disconnected from for a long time. Or it was in a quote, another life, because it was prior to being married, prior to kids or prior to educating, moving, whatever, and insert the variable.
And now you’re like, Oh, wow. And so it gives you an awareness of where [00:27:00] you are now in life. But they’re also like, remember this fire you have, I know it’s in you and use this fire to go here kind of thing. So I love that. Yeah.
Nura: I love that. Um, I think that really speaks also to the North node in Aries. So she’s conjunct the South node, but opposite the North node.
And so they’re going to have this, this relationship, this, this connection. I think something else that’s really interesting too, about the time we’re in with Venus is she’s still in her morning star phase and we are still working with the throat chakra. If we follow the Venus gate. practice which comes from the shamanic astrology school of thought.
So we’re healing and clearing so much in our throat chakras. This has been from November 9th and it’ll be through until December 9th. And so in, you know, working with Libra and clearing in the throat chakra, I mean, it’s old conversations. Like, is there something that we even need to remember? [00:28:00] I think this is a great time to actually speak things into surrender and, um, you know, talking to other people can help.
And this, I think is really where it was coming to that, you know, finding the right people to talk to. I know something, um, for me, I’ve noticed in my relationships, especially is like, I can be feeling the need. To express myself, but maybe I don’t even know what I need, like, and so then I start talking to somebody else and then they’re not understanding me because I’m not understanding me, I’m coming to a place already kind of with a level of confusion in internal confusion, and I’m almost like, hoping that by expressing something outward that this other person is going to be able to help me feel more clear.
And so, It can get messy, right? Like, we can have, again, all these expectations and, um, you know, projections, like, if I speak this out loud, if I do the vulnerable thing and open up, this person’s going to understand me, and it doesn’t always work that way, so I feel [00:29:00] like there’s this heightened awareness of who we’re speaking to and how, and just heightened awareness of our needs, like, how much more can we be clear of our needs?
And even if our need is To just be held while I speak about my confusion. Like, maybe I don’t need an opinion. Maybe I need you to know that I am confused right now. Yeah, yeah. And I’m not necessarily looking for advice. I just want to be held in this. So, so much of it, I think, is just… Is being pretty direct, which is Sagittarius son will help is being very direct and blatant about what you’re needing.
So as to not create more of that confusion and more of that dependency. And that’s actually how I think Libra and Sagittarius can work together quite well. So, you know, finding. Finding your people to talk to, finding your voice, doing your journaling, and asking yourself maybe the [00:30:00] question first before you go and ask somebody else might be a good practice, especially if you tend toward the side of the spectrum where you’re always asking somebody else first.
Jamie: Yeah, that’s interesting. Yeah. Where you need like their opinion. I think I read it like there’s a quote somewhere. It says like when we, when we ask someone’s opinion, we’re looking, really looking for someone to agree with us, not to like, give us that, you know, opposition feeling.
Nura: I think you bring up a good point in that too. It’s like finding the people who I think are going to validate you, um, you know, love you whether or not they agree with you, but. To who are going to honor your insights.
Jamie: Well, sometimes it’s like, it’s a different level of awakening and experience too. And I think that’s,
and I really have worked on this personally. Like if I don’t want to convince anyone, if I have to convince you that something is, is actual are real, then you’re not ready to understand it or we’re not in the same bubble. So like, if you’re, that is that’s
Nura: Sagittarius wisdom right there. I think you just, you summed it up because that’s what it is.
Jamie: Yeah. If you’re going to spend all your energy trying to convince [00:31:00] someone to a belief of yours, that’s not a good way to use that Mars.
That Mars is more like, let me, okay, you’re, this isn’t your fire. Let me take my candle and light this fire. Let me light this fire and then like, let that come back at you. So that awareness of, of how it’s being received is good. And don’t let it deflate you.
Nura: You know, yeah, and I think that brings up to like, if we think of the shadow of Sagittarius can be like proselytizing, you know, like getting up on the soapbox and being dogmatic and preaching.
And it’s like, I think that does come from that needing to convince or persuade energy versus like, you can take that passion and that enthusiasm that Sagittarius brings, but bringing it to the people who are already asking for it, who are. In the space to listen.
Thursday, November 30
Jamie: So we’re getting towards the end of the week.
How do you feel about Thursday?
Nura: So Thursday, Mercury is in the last degree of Sagittarius. Maybe we’re doing some tying up of old beliefs or, you know, tying up of old adventures. Maybe they’re not old. Tying up of adventures that we’ve been [00:32:00] taking in our mind. Rather, whether it’s literally or figuratively.
Um, I know I have a Mercury in the final degrees of, Sagittarius, and it’s conjunct the galactic center, so I live with that feeling of, okay, there’s so much to explore. It’s like a literally never ending horizon. That galactic center, it’s, you know, it’s pulling us, but then we’re like, is there ever an end?
No, there isn’t. No.
Jamie: That’s where my horizon is. No, there’s no end.
Nura: You get it. You get it. Yeah, I got it. And so that can be both fun. It can be exciting. It can really fire up our passions. But sometimes, you know, if you’re experiencing the shadow side of that, it can be like too big and you can almost feel like you’re moored in space.
Like moored in this kind of very disembodied place and so as we’re tying up, you know, Thursday, November 30th,
Friday, December 1
Nura: and then into Friday, December 1st, when Mercury [00:33:00] enters Capricorn, I think we’ll be able to take all of that, you know, expansive um, quality of mind that happens with Mercury and Sagittarius and then bring it into something practical, rooting.
I can do something with this. I can start to, you know, ferret out the things that I’m like, oh, that was an interesting rabbit hole, but don’t need to keep going that way. And I can, you know, really root it into something that I want to be building. So I think that will be a really nice way to, you know, come to some practical application after the Sagittarian meandering.
Saturday, December 2
Nura: Saturday, we have Mercury in Capricorn, 1 Capricorn, sextile Saturn, 1 Pisces, and so I think this is just furthering the opportunity for rooting our You know, mental fancies into reality, and we can really get some support from the sextile, Mercury sextile to Saturn.
What I love about this sextile is that, although, you know, it’s Saturn and [00:34:00] Capricorn, very practical, um, Saturn is in Pisces, and both… Capricorn and Pisces share an overlay of the archetype of the mermaid. There’s something mystical about both of these signs, so I think it’ll be a really great time to whip out your fantasy fiction novels if that’s what you’re into, or you know, watch some inspiring movies that are kind of in that They’re in that bridge place between fantasy and reality.
The place that’s inspiring, the place that is like, this is, this is helping me to imagine a brighter world and I can do something practical with this information. I can, you know, if I’m watching something about magic, I can remember that life is magical. Maybe it doesn’t look like what it looks like on the screen, but I have my own very real, tangible experience of that.
So I think it’s a nice balance Capricorn and Pisces of the mystical. And the mythopoetic and how to bring it into life in a way that’s fun, but still very rooting and grounding. [00:35:00]
Jamie: Beautiful, beautiful, yes. I can’t wait for that weekend. I’m gonna be all about it. I know, I know,
Nura: me too. There’s something too about the mermaid energy that it’s just this remembrance of the time before.
What was the time before? Whether it’s the time in our room, the time before we incarnated into this body, and there can be a lot of reminiscence. And so this is why I think connecting to fantasy helps us connect again to that, that bigger cosmic womb, that bigger cosmic vision. And so kind of taking that and applying it to everything else that we’ve been talking about, because it’s not happening in a vacuum.
It’s happening, you know, right after this Venus South Node conjunction and in the same week of the full moon. I think maybe we can take some inspiration, whether it’s from favorite characters that we like. How are they being in relationship? Another way [00:36:00] to work with this might be looking at, well, how have our ways of being in relationship been informed by fantasy?
And can we afford to continue to, you know, compare our lives, our real life relationships to fantasies? Like, there’s all these different ways of being with that. And so kind of seeing, like, where are you on that spectrum? Do you need a little bit more romance? A little bit more fantasy? I know for me, um, I, if I’m feeling like I need some more romance, I need some more fantasy, but it’s like still somewhat grounded.
I watch Outlander. Have you seen that show? Oh my gosh,
Jamie: yes. I mean, I read it first. And then I watched it and I guess definitely, yeah, kind of brings in all the elements of it for sure.
Nura: Totally. So that, that’s an example that comes to mind and it’s, you know, it’s real enough that it’s like, maybe this is possible.
Maybe I could just step in to another portal. of existence that could time travel, you know, this is bringing in all of the, the Capricorn and Saturn, like history, like historical [00:37:00] fiction could also be part of it too.
Jamie: So that’s a beautiful archetype to kind of call it because it is a very practical situation where magic is used and like having to I love how you, I love how it kind of like turns around for the week though. You know, cause just, just like, it’s just like this big bowl of like, you know, this is how we step into, um.
It’s like a youthful, but also grounded, your past going deep, having a lot of energy and then kind of ending it on this really practical note to be. I, it seems like there could be some aha moments, especially like this time of year. Cause we’re watching familiar movies. We’re listening. They’re going to familiar places and songs and those memories are coming.
They’re really rich right now, whether they’re positive for you or challenging or, it’s almost like you can go into the movie of your own life and that practical magic could be like, like sometimes I envision if I go back and tell my 12 year old.
And I’m like, what would I tell her if she was sitting across from me? Like, how [00:38:00] would I guide her? And like, almost envision, like, what would, like, imagine what that person would do if she had known this information at that time in her life, like what, what, what, what world were you living in? You know? So just like, that’s practical magic, because if you can envision.
Yeah. Yeah. The past and the future and how you can interplay in your own fantasy in your own world. Um, yeah, that’s very powerful. The mind is a very powerful thing. So this is Gemini and then you have a Gemini full moon and you have this practical cality of. Saturnian energy kind of like, bring that into reality, like, cause you even talked about going to the galactic center and going like, way out, it’s kinda like we go way in way out and we come home and it’s practical fantasy.
Deluge of oneness, so.
Sunday, December 3
Nura: Yeah, and then we close the week with Venus entering Scorpio. So we get to take all of that beautiful inspiration and exploration and just bring it in and feel it. I mean, that’s ultimately, I think, what Venus in Scorpio is inviting us into. It’s feel it to heal it. You know, accessing those internal [00:39:00] emotional resources, really accessing what is hidden and going purposefully into the depths and just to bring more love there, because that’s what Venus is.
She’s the planet of love. So can we bring more love to the things that maybe we don’t often notice because they’re hidden or underneath the surface or things that maybe we’re even afraid of looking at? But I think that we’re actually very well equipped with everything that’s happening before Venus enters Scorpio, because we’re.
We get to do a lot of external resourcing, like Sagittarius, Gemini, and Libra are all yang signs, so very connected to external resourcing from other people. But then when Venus comes into Scorpio, we get to take it all in to our alchemical soul cave and see, okay, now how do I get to do some internal resourcing?
Yeah, I love it. Inspiration. So yeah, it’s a nice way to end the week.
Jamie: Definitely it is. It’s a nice way. But is there anything else that you would like to say to just kind of like button up the week?
Like if you had words of wisdom,
Nura: I think it’s paying attention to [00:40:00] nuance and really trusting in your capacity to always return to your center.
So even if you go on these adventures, you go on these explorations, you read different books, you engage and entertain in fantasies, like there is a part of you that is unchanging and always connected to that. Oneness, that awareness. And so you, it’s totally fine, totally fine to go and play with it. You can always come back if you’re ever, you know, lost in overwhelm, you know, you can always come back to yourself, back into your body.
And I think that’s, that’s a general life theme that I know I’m working on. So that’s pretty much the wisdom that I always have to share. It’s, you know, your body is a safe place to be, and you are more resourced than you may ever realize.
Jamie: This has been a pleasure to connect with you. Um, and I look forward to connecting with you.

So full moon. In Gemini, that’s number one. We also have Venus conjunct the south node. We also have Venus squaring Pluto before she enters Scorpio. And then we also have Mercury entering Capricorn. So it’s a pretty strong Venus week, but also full moons always bring in the oppositions that are inherent in relationship.
And it’s usually like, if you can’t Dig into the opposition for yourself. You usually need a mirror. You usually need somebody outside of you to be able to balance [00:43:00] something off that so that you can see more clearly.
