DECEMBER 2 ~ Writing With The Stars ~ daily astrology for writers

moonclouds_smallThis morning, it’s as if the floodgates have opened and your writing is pouring out. This afternoon, though, things slow down. It’s a great evening for considering big new ideas about where your writing can take you. Your greatest visions are achievable as you blend them with practicality and stamina. Writing about women’s issues is highlighted, especially about the future of women or about women in foreign countries. If you write science fiction, speculate about the role of women in future societies or on other planets.

As the Moon approaches conjunction with Uranus, you can come up with some surprising twists and turns in whatever story you’re writing.

There is the potential to write about profound changes in how the world cares for all children.

NOVEMBER 30 ~ Writing With The Stars ~ daily astrology for writers

moonclouds_smallYou really want to get writing this morning but you’re not sure which way to go. You could write that outline, but there’s that really fun scene you want to tackle as well. You’ll be torn between work and pleasure today. Work will probably win because it has the stronger aspects. But that fun is out there, tempting you like a big clown on a merry-go-round, beckoning for you to jump on. If there is any way to make your work fun, go there! Today you can confirm that your writing is both your work and your pleasure. The two go hand in hand.

NOVEMBER 29 ~ Writing With The Stars ~ daily astrology for writers

moonclouds_smallThe day starts out with a Moon/Neptune conjunction in Pisces. Belief systems are highlighted today. Anyone writing critically about religious institutions will be in their element. There’s a push to eliminate the fog around these institutions to look at them and see them for what they are, warts and all. Comedy writers could get in on the act today, too, writing satire or skewering sacred cows. Tonight, we see the big picture and where we may have been fooling ourselves with belief systems that don’t stand up to scrutiny in the light of day. Write about that.

NOVEMBER 28 ~ Writing With The Stars ~ daily astrology for writers

moonclouds_smallYou’ll be dealing with other work issues instead of writing this morning. It’s a good day for dealing with contracts or social media marketing or foreign publishers. You could also get some computer maintenance done or get your backup system in order. It’s a day of practicalities with a vision toward making your work routine smoother in the future. As the Moon goes into Pisces tonight and conjuncts Neptune, you’ll probably just want to take it easy and read or watch a movie. But in alliance with today’s practical work motif, while you’re watching that movie, see if you can identify the plot structure in that screenplay.

NOVEMBER 27 ~ Writing With The Stars ~ daily astrology for writers

moonclouds_smallThis morning there’s a real feeling of moving forward with our writing. The structure we’ve been working on has given us the freedom to play around within it, without getting lost in chaos. The Mars/Jupiter quincunx breaks free as well, so we can be as dramatic as we want to be. The Moon quintiles the Sun which fires up our creative ideas. Tonight, Mercury leaves deep brooding Scorpio and enters adventurous Sagittarius. The next three weeks will be a writing journey you won’t want to miss!

NOVEMBER 26 ~ Writing With The Stars ~ daily astrology for writers

moonclouds_smallThis morning, we sense change in the air, good change that smells like freedom. We’ve done so much of the grunt work in our writing, the research, the outlining, the plotting and the planning. We’re on the verge of being able to just write. Around noon, the Moon enters Aquarius. This stirs up exciting new ideas and gives us a sense of leaping into the future. Science fiction or fact articles are highlighted today. The pathway we’ve been plodding along with our writing starts to feel like a paved road. Yet Mercury still lingers in Scorpio with Saturn, so it’ll be another day or two before the road becomes a racetrack and it’s full speed ahead!

NOVEMBER 25 ~ Writing With The Stars ~ daily astrology for writers

moonclouds_smallAs the Moon conjoins Pluto in Capricorn, we can completely transmute our writing project into something brand new and original. If we have been constraining our writing to what we think is socially acceptable, we could break out of that mold now and say what’s really on our mind. Yes, it will feel uncomfortable, but write it anyway. You don’t have to make it public if you don’t want to. Uranus trine Venus adds spice to romance novels. Science fiction writers will find some great new characters, maybe even a new type of alien life form! And religious writers will get a new appreciation for the individual as an expression of the divine.
