Here’s your Weekly Horoscope November 28 – December 4, 2022.
This week is the culmination of what’s been building since mid-October: oppositions between planets in Scorpio and Mars (now retrograde) in Taurus.
Themes are: Emotional security vs physical safety and recognizing self-abandonment.
What situations in your life are reaching a culmination of tension and intensity this week?
- November 28 – Mars (Rx) trine Saturn
- November 29 – Mercury opposite Mars (Rx)
- November 30 – Venus opposite Mars (Rx)
- December 2 – Mercury in Sagittarius
The opposition aspect is a confrontation between planets in signs that share the same task. Scorpio and Taurus share the fixed task. Fixed signs (Taurus, Scorpio, Leo, Aquarius) ask:
- Who must I be in order to survive?
- How do I know who I am?
- Which me is the real me?
Taurus deals with the identities assigned to our physical appearance and the identities assigned to the behaviors and habits we engage in. Its gift is approval, which is to be liked and accepted based on who/what we look like we are. Scorpio deals with the identities assigned to our biological and emotional expressions. Its gift is emotional boundaries, which is to center one’s own feelings as a metric for whether or not a person is safe or dangerous.
What happens when who/what you look like you are contradicts who you actually are? And what about when you are perceived as a threat because of who/what you look like you are?
What about when other people become a threat to you because they perceive you as a threat?
The moral value assigned to biological and emotional expressions currently means that trans people are perceived as a threat to status quo of power. The status quo is the enforcement of gender beginning en utero. We have crafted fantastical machines that can look inside the body of a pregnant person, primarily for the purposes of examining the fetuses genital. We cause wildfires that destroy people’s homes and poison the water supply as a way to “celebrate” the genitals of a fetus. Which might leave you wondering what the real threat is…
Even one’s experience of and response to the emotion of fear becomes associated with our identity. One’s sanity is up for debate if one changes their behavior based on their own subjective perception of fear.
This is just a couple examples of how one person or group of people’s bodies become perceived as a threat based on the identity assigned to that body/behavior.
- Where in your life are you being challenged to develop the emotional fortitude required to trust your body in the midst of social pressure to conform?
- On a scale of 1 to 10, with 10 being the strongest: How capable are you of maintaining your emotional truth when other people appear to feel differently than you?
- What behaviors do you engage in as an expression of this capability, or lack thereof?
- Which is more important to you, feeling physically safe or feeling emotionally secure?
- How do you know when you are emotional secure?
- How do you know when you are physically safe?
