Its just a phase


IT'S SAGITTARIUS SEASON. Sagittarius is ruled by Jupiter, planet of expansion, big ideas, goals and thinking. Opposed by Gemini - a sign that loves thinking about the particulars- Sagittarius season here to help us see the broader picture. Expand your mind through travel and learning new things.

Neptune will challenge the Sun during Sagittarius season (Nov 23 - Dec 23), so a clear picture can be hard to settle on. Anticipate confusion around the new and full moons and lean into Mercury retrograde as of December 12 to review the year that's passed, and line up what you want to get a hold of for 2024..

Listen to the Sag season playlist here.

❍︎ Full moon in Gemini - 27 Nov

This Gemini full moon is influenced by Mercury squaring Neptune, potentially confusing communications and matters of the mind. Take note to keep track of it all. There’s a lot to parse these days; rather than feeling isolated by different interpretations of events, this full moon is an opportunity to sift through information and focus on commonalities, no matter how small. Gemini is ruled by Mercury, so points for jokes and levity.

Prepare yourself for the upcoming new moon in Sagittarius by letting go of anything that is too confounding. Full moons help us to release. Streamlining is the new-new.

๏ New moon in Sagittarius - 12 Dec

Sagittarius' new moon is the start of a new cycle. Think of the next six months as your opportunity to work the Gemini-Sagittarius axis. But first, how does it relate to you? You can do some cosmic sleuthing here by thinking back to the last eclipse series between these two signs - June 5 2020 - Dec 4 2021. Where there any pertinent themes here for you? They may be revisited. Sagittarius is ruled by Jupiter, optimistic, expansive, outspoken and independent. It’s a fine time to focus on goals that form from a broader perspective. Think big because Jupiter’s alignment to this new moon supports this. What can you double-down on from 2020/2021?

Desire line, Washington Square, Philadelphia.


‘The ultimate end of human acts is eudaimonia, happiness in the sense of living well, which all people desire; all acts are but different means chosen to arrive at it.’ - Hannah Arendt.

Epicurus saw eudaimonia as the final telos; the point of being alive. Eudaimonia is the realisation and pursuit of the best things in life: pleasure, knowledge, friendship, and virtue.

As Hannah Arendt states, getting there, well, that's up to us. I photographed the above desire line (or desire path) in Philadelphia. It's a track that is worn by intent; often it is the shortest way to get to a desired place. While in New York I learned about how Broadway was once the Wecquaesgeek trail, a desire line that pre-dates colonial USA. Broadway runs north to south of the island for 16.6 miles.

A desire line holds meaning beyond an efficient trip, it also is an example of bucking authority. Since the Gemini full moon is here to help with streamlining and release, what desire line will you pursue with a lighter load?
