I am heartbroken because of Hurricane Sandy. My favorite place in the world is the barrier islands of southern New Jersey. We went every year and stayed for a month. I hesitated to buy property there because of the global warming forecast that hurricanes would be much more powerful and destructive in the future because of the rise in the ocean levels. So I am glad that I didn’t buy on the barrier island, but it is sad to see the pictures of Ocean City streets, homes and the amusement park damaged or destroyed.
I think the most important news that trumps the upcoming election and hurricane Sandy is the news that there is more evidence that the world we live in is a computer simulation. Some nerd somewhere has created our world on his computer and we think it is real! I think knowing we are all in a Sim City computer game relieves a lot of stress. Think about it!

The nerd that created me has installed a bug in my DNA that keeps me looking at the stars. Oh Well! Here we go. November will be a busy month because of two eclipses and Mercury turning retrograde on Nov 6.
Those of you with planets at 5 to 8 degrees of cardinal signs (Aries, Libra, Cancer or Capricorn) are probably exhausted by now trying to keep the Uranus/Pluto transformative, rebellious energies at bay in your life. Well, it ain’t over yet for you. For the first 3 days of Nov., Venus will be opposing and squaring the Pluto/Uranus aspect and then Mars conjuncts Pluto on Nov 27. Venus and Mars moving into the Pluto/Uranus square increases the impact of the square. So whatever you have been dealing with will have more energy especially around your relationships and your work.
Dates to Watch:
Nov 1 – Venus opposite Uranus at 5 Libra/Aries. Surprising social events, challenges in our love relationships especially if you have personal planets (Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus or Mars) or the ascendant at 5 Libra or Aries.
Nov 3 – Venus Square Pluto at 7 Libra/Capricorn. Again relationships are affected. There may be some power struggles. Especially if you have personal planets or the ascendant at 7 Libra/Capricorn.
Nov 4 – Daylight Saving Time ends
Nov 6 – Mercury turns retrograde at 6:04 PM EST just in time for the election. Read the meaning of Mercury retrograde on election day by Eric Francis Eric also looks at the natal chart of Obama and Romney These Men have Issues
Nov 9 – Venus Trine Jupiter at 14 degrees of Libra/Gemini. A recovery day for all of the relationship angst from the beginning of the month. You will enjoy yourself today, especially if you have personal planets or the ascendant at 13 to 15 degrees of Libra or Gemini.
Nov 11 – Neptune turns direct at 0 Pisces. A very confusing day for those of you with personal planets or the ascendant at 28 Aquarius through 2 Pisces.
Nov 13 – Solar Eclipse at 21 Scorpio. I will be sending an eclipse report out covering this eclipse and the lunar eclipse of Nov 28.
Mercury Square Neptune. Your thinking is still screwy.
Nov 14 – Mercury enters Scorpio until Dec 10. When Mercury (our mind) enters the suspicious sign of Scorpio, we all get a little paranoid. It is a good placement for doing research or reading mysteries.
Nov 16 – Mars enters Capricorn until 25 December. Mars is very grounded in Capricorn. It is time to put your energy into your career and to build a good foundation for the future.
Nov 17 – Sun conjunct Mercury. A favorable time for a trip and also a good time to dig into those difficult novels you have meant to read. Try Balzac. Good ahead, you can do it.
Nov 21 – Sun enters Sagittarius until Dec 21. During this month we get restless with an itch to travel.
Venus enters Scorpio until Dec 15. Our love life gets way more intense now. We won’t settle for the namby pamby kinda guys we have been hanging out with. We want the dark, dangerous type now.
Nov 22 – Sun square Neptune at 0 Sagittarius/Pisces. We are feeling very idealistic today. We can make some really wrong decisions especially if you have personal planets or the ascendant at 9 Sagittarius or Pisces
Venus trine Neptune. This is a pleasant aspect, very good for any artistic work and for decorating your home.
Nov 23 – Mars square Uranus at 4 Capricorn/Aries. Our energy is erratic today, watch out for accidents. You have a tendency to drive too fast today.
Nov 26 – Sun Trine Uranus. And exciting time. A fun party is on tap for today.
Mercury turns direct at 8 degrees of Scorpio. Finally Mercury is moving direct. You can finally do your Xmas shopping and move ahead in business.
Venus conjunct Saturn at 6 Scorpio. We get very serious today about our relationships. We want to make a long term commitment.
Nov 27 – Mars conjunct Pluto at 7 Capricorn. We are very hard-headed today, no one can tell us anything. We know it all. Again those of you with 5 to 8 degrees of Aries, Libra, Cancer or Capricorn are especially stubborn, unmovable and unreasonable.
Nov 28 – Lunar Eclipse at 6 Gemini. This is a more emotional eclipse than the one on Nov 13. I will write more about this eclipse in my eclipse article.
OUTER PLANET TRANSITS
JUPITER is in Gemini until Aug 27, 2013. This month Jupiter is moving retrograde and will move from 15 Gemini to 111 Gemini. During the retrograde, you plans for expansion may slow down. You don’t feel as exuberant as you did. Look to the house in your natal chart that holds 15 to 11 Gemini. In this area of your life you may feel limited during the retrograde.
SATURN is in Scorpio until Dec 24, 2014. This month Saturn moves from 3 to 6 of Scorpio. If you have the Ascendant or any personal planets at 3 to 6 degrees of 3 Scorpio or Taurus in your natal chart, you may be in store for some hard lessons around the issues ruled by the planet and the house the planet is in or rules. Scorpio rules passion, sex and depths of all kinds and Saturn may ask you to take on more responsibility for how you control your rage and psychological expression.
URANUS is in Aries until 2018. This
month Uranus is still retrograde and moves from 5 to 4 degrees. We all feel a need to rebel; we want more
freedom and want to make some radical changes in our life. I believe in
“cooperating with the inevitable”. If you have Uranus in a challenging
aspect to your ascendant or personal planets, go on a long vacation, move, or
make some major changes in your life.
NEPTUNE (creativity, sensitivity, escapism, dreams) has just moved into Pisces until 2026. This month Neptune is retrograde until Nov 11 when he moves retrograde. He will stay at 0 degrees of Pisces all month. A lack of focus, a sense of drifting or an inability to see a betrayal or disappointment until it's too late can be experienced by those of you with the Sun or Personal Planets at 0 degrees of Pisces or Virgo. For the enlightened out there, Neptune can also bring artistic, musical, creative expression, increased dreams and spiritual insights.
PLUTO is in Capricorn until 2023. This month Pluto will move from 7 to 8 degress of Capricorn all month. Everyone is feeling the urge to purge and to find his or her truth. Profound changes will be felt especially by those with Sun, Ascendant or personal planets at 7 or 8 degrees of Capricorn or Cancer.
Have a good month,
