The information in this column is limited. It does not replace your seeing your astrologer. If you know the sign of your Moon and your Ascending sign, read those sections also. This information is helpful because it mentions planets passing through your sign. These do bring opportunities.
Special note: Here’s wishing all of you the best in November. The emphasis this month is on the signs Aquarius, Pisces, Libra, Scorpio, and Sagittarius. Whatever we have in our own charts, we also become these qualities temporarily. Aquarius knows, Pisces believes, Libra compares, Scorpio transforms, and Sagittarius seeks. Mars is in Aquarius in weeks 1 and 2 and shows stress and/or activity with humanity. Mars is in Pisces in weeks 3 and 4 and shows Martial energy in our imaginations. It’s square of Jupiter in weeks 3 and 4, and it joining with Neptune at the end of the month can bring extreme and exaggerated actions. Venus is in Libra this month and promots love, beauty, and art. It is retrograde until the 16th, so we are revisiting our love past. An opposition between Venus and Uranus brings the unexpected in love. The Sun in weeks 1, 2, and 3 and Jupiter in week 1 are in Scorpio. This shows us controlling and benefiting from intense issues. The Sun in week 4, Mercury all month, and Jupiter in weeks 2, 3, and 4 are in Sagittarius. We are more upbeat and seeking. Mercury is retrograde from the 16th and we should try to improve focus. Jupiter will stay in Sagittarius from week 2 of Nov. until Dec. of 2019. In attitude and philosophy, we leave the intensity of Scorpio and soak up the optimism and faith of Jupiter and Sagittarius. Uranus goes back into fire sign Aries until March of ’19 when it goes back into earth sign, Taurus. When it went form Aries to Taurus in May, we had Kiluea. Let’s see if anything happens as Uranus changes sign again. While it is in Aries, those with late placements in Aries, Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn, should expect the unexpected, the opening of new vistas, and the need to seek the reliable in all things. Saturn is in its own sign, Capricorn. It stays through 2020, and becomes very strong. Saturn here is about being practical and realistic. It represents setting and achieving goals and is climbing the mountain of accomplishment. Capricorns, Taurus, and Virgos should become more practical. Capricorns, Aries, Cancer, and Libra need to get rest, avoid overwork, and remember to seek joy.
A New Moon in Scorpio on the 6th, 7th, and morning of the 8 brings a new start in intensity. Full Moon in Gemini on the 23rd and 24th contrasts facts and opinions.
Please note changes in the sky around election time. There is a New Moon showing a new start. Uranus changes sign on election day shows change. It is also moving backward. Uranus represents progressives. Saturn representing Democrats, is strong in Capricorn. And Jupiter changes sign 2 days after the election showing more change. Jupiter will be strong when it goes into Sagittarius. Jupiter represents the Republicans. Jupiter shows more engagement with other planets than Saturn.
Remember that new, full, and quarter moons are powerful times during the month. Actions taken at these times should be positive and well thought out. The quarter moons are in Aquarius on the afternoon of the 13, the 14th, and 15th and in Virgo on the 29th and 30th.
Israel continues in the news. In their birth chart, early Scorpio rises, a Taurus Sun is in the 7th, and Moon, Pluto, Saturn, and Mars are in Leo in the 10th. Iran has three planets in Aquarius forming a grand cross with Israel’s planets. This is a tense relationship. The U.S. Embassy moved to Jerusalem under a Taurus new moon, a new start.
The Pluto Uranus square is over. It made the extreme unpredictable and the unpredictable more extreme. When you heard about events that are unusually bad, like tornadoes ( Moore OK.) and earthquakes, Sandy, the Boston Marathon bombing, the Colorado floods, the Philippines typhoon, the Washington mudslide, the IL F4, the Ca. Drought, and the recent floods in Texas, the floods and fires in Ca. In ’17, and the hurricanes of ’17, this was one of the culprits. This aspect existed in the early 30s. I have concluded that this square also represented among other conflicts, the conflict between the left (Uranus) and the right (Capricorn). I have finally resolved it in my own mind. With so much news coverage of the conflicting positions, I see it as an opportunity to see the good that the left has to offer and to see the good that the right has to offer. I’ll be writing a paper on the Uranus/Pluto square soon and posting on facebook. Friend me. I’ll include the good things that are coming from this square like new discoveries about death and the afterlife. This long term square ended at mid-May. P.S. The square may still have some punch since Uranus will be back in Aries from Nov. until March. I say this because of the ongoing turmoil. Or the Uranus/Mars square may be the culprit.
Days that look fairly harmonious this month are: 2, 8, 10, 16, 17, 21, 22, 24, 27, & 28. For really important events, it requires a deeper look. Part of the magic of Astrology is how much better things go when we start things on good days.
Extra special note: I’m recommending that people read Covey, Dyer, and Chopra during their birth month. They write about achieving success and happiness and this is what the Sun is about in our charts. During the birth month we have the opportunity to start a new cycle of success and these authors have great ideas on how to do it. For those who want to get in on the ground floor of understanding existence and self-improvement, C.C. Zain’s Church of Light books will make you an astrologer and a metaphysician. These books teach us that there is a supernatural dimension in and around us that makes life subtle and interesting. And that Astrology gives us helpful information in innumerable situations. And finally, that we have the power to change our lives through Astrology and by harmonizing our feelings and our thinking.
