Energy shifts...

By Arlan Wise - November 16, 2006

Mercury goes into direct motion in a few days. Uranus stops, turns around, and moves forward a couple of days later. Uranus has been retrograde since mid-June, moving backwards from 14 to 10 degrees of Pisces. All those with planets in those degrees of the mutable signs (Gemini, Sagittarius, Virgo, Pisces) have been feeling his attention. He shakes up your life so that you can be free.

Jupiter enters his own sign of Sagittarius on Nov. 23. This will be a lucky year as he gets to play in his home field. Think back to 1995 and see if you can make this year even better. Jupiter will bring you travel, education, spiritual experiences, teaching opportunities. He gives them to make you grow. He wants you out of the house and immersed in a new way of thinking.

From Nov. 19 until Dec. 5 there is a rare window of time when all the planets are moving in direct motion. It is the time of the year when you must take the steps that move your life alone. This is the big wave the surfers wait for, don't stand on the beach and watch it go by, jump on and ride it!
