I am still buried under piles of Nursing Text books currently, but needed to take a moment to let you know about the upcoming astrological weather!!!

There IS a lot of astrological activity going on right now you might want to be aware of, so you can use it to your best benefit! Get your astrological umbrella ready!

The full moon in Taurus (money/material possessions/personal values) we experienced on Monday October 29th opposing the Sun in Scorpio (taxes/death/society's values), that brought the East Coast Sandy, challenged us to ask ourselves "what is truly important to me, personally, versus what is important to my society?  Do I want to live in a society where it's okay to say "I got mine, so screw you?" or do I want to live in a society where everyone's personal values are respected (whether I agree with those values or not), which means support is available to everyone?   Is it true that "...the moral test of government is how that government treats those who are in the dawn of life, the children; those who are in the twilight of life, the elderly; those who are in the shadows of life; the sick, the needy and the handicapped." as said by former Vice President, Hubert H. Humphrey?

Think it's over??? The Full Moon and "Hurricane Sandy" were just the beginning!  There are three more MAJOR astrological events coming up, starting tonight with Mercury going Retrograde at 6:04 pm EST.  This has only happened one other time in the history of U.S. elections.  You guessed it!  Election 2000.

 

Mercury retrograde is associated with faulty electronics and miscommunications. Already there are reports of voting machines flipping votes from one candidate to another. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QdpGd74DrBM&feature=youtu.be

Whoever is proclaimed the winner is not going to be allowed to enjoy it, I will tell you that much.  The Sabian Symbol for this is "An Old Owl in a Tree", emulating the energy of a quiet old sage full of wisdom.  The negative aspect of this energy is: "smug denial of available wisdom".  Do you really believe everything you "think"?

 

It's not good to start new things under Mercury Retrograde.  It's a time of "don't throw the baby out with the bathwater"...rework, rethink, reevaluate what you already have in front of you.  Is it so bad that you need to discard it completely?

And then we have two eclipses coming up.  Eclipses are always about uncovering "that which was previously hidden from sight".  Or, "the truth hurts, so deal with it". 

The first one is on Tuesday, November 13th.  New moon solar eclipse at 21 Scorpio, the Sabian Symbol is: "Hunters shooting wild duck".  The positive manifestation of this energy is "hitting things right on the mark" and a positive way of letting out aggressive energy.  The negative manifestation is: "Taking unfair advantage of the innocent".

And then finally, we have a full moon lunar eclipse on Wednesday, November 28th at 9:46 am.  The Sabian symbol for this energy is: "An old fashioned well".  The positive manifestation of this energy is to, once again, dig deep into your well of inner wisdom.  The negative manifestation is ignoring the advice of others that is based on well established ideas, and ignoring the depth in others.

Well, it certainly won't be boring!

Hold on tight and hang in there!  Positive and real change and transformation always seems to manifest out of our deepest challenges.  Embrace your inner wisdom.
