With the Scorpio New Moon intention-setting now in the rearview mirror, today’s First-Quarter Moon (7:46 am) poises us to spring into action to make our desired goals a reality. This Half-Moon in Aquarius also equips us to act with greater objectivity or detachment that can aid us in seeing our way ahead more clearly.
Luna’s monthly conjunction with expansive Jupiter (2:52 pm) may also make it easier to connect or partner with others who have similar visions for the collective or the community that we do. Moon-Jupiter also tends to fill us with more optimism. General Colin Powell once said, “Perpetual optimism is a force multiplier.” While American philosopher William James stated, “Pessimism leads to weakness, optimism to power.”
How do you tend to see things? Is the glass half-full or half-empty?

On This Day in History: On November 11, 1919, Veterans Day originated as “Armistice Day,” the first anniversary of the end of World War I. The US Congress passed a resolution in 1926 for an annual observance, and November 11 became a national holiday beginning in 1938. (History.com)
Astrologically, on 11/11/19, Mars (which rules soldiers and the military) was in service-oriented Virgo and one degree separating from an exact, waning sextile to the authoritative Sun in Scorpio (the sign ruling death and rebirth). Intellectual Mercury was also in philosophical Sagittarius and exactly square to serious Saturn in Virgo, an influence that can make us more inclined to reflect upon or think about our past wounds or sorrows.
Born on This Day: Late Russian novelist, Fyodor Dostoevsky. He wrote in Crime and Punishment:
“The darker the night, the brighter the stars,
The deeper the grief, the closer is God!”
Hope it’s a good one! Please be safe and well. Also want to say a big heartfelt “thank you” to all of our brave veterans.
