I actually wrote a note in my planner about doing this last weekend (Oct 17), but there were those damned forest fires nearby and I needed to pack a suitcase just in case. (Turns out the fires moved northward, and we live southeast. Whew.) Anyway, here we go for a somewhat mellower month:
Sunday, November 1 - in the US, fucking awful stupid Daylight Savings Time ends, at 2:00 am local time. At least we get an extra hour of sleep.
Tuesday, November 3, 17:50 UT - transiting Mercury stations direct, 25:50 Libra
Friday, November 6, 23:14 UT - Scorpio cross-quarter day (the Sun reaches 15 degrees 0 minutes 0 seconds of the sign Scorpio)
Sunday, November 8 - Mercury leaves its “Storm” period, and begins to move faster than 40 minutes of arc per day.
Monday, November 9, 14:38 UT - transiting Ceres re-enters Pisces
Monday, November 9, 14:51 UT - transiting Vesta enters pre-retrograde shadow, 6:42 Virgo
Tuesday, November 10. approx 17:00 UT - Mercury’s greatest western elongation, 29:47 Libra
Tuesday, November 10, 21:55 UT - transiting Mercury re-enters Scorpio
Thursday, November 12, 21:39 UT - the final Jupiter-Pluto conjunction, 22:51 Capricorn
Departing from the format to say: this will most likely manifest as another spike in coronavirus cases - here in the US, if we haven’t already shut down, we probably will, close to this day. (I don’t see that happening before the election, unless Dolt 45 gets truly desperate.) The Lady Asteroid Pallas Athene is also exactly conjunct Jupiter and Pluto today - and the Lady Asteroid Vesta/Virgo is exactly sesquare (135 degrees) Pallas Athene, Jupiter, and Pluto. JFC.
Saturday, November 14, 00:36 UT - transiting Mars stations direct, 15:14 Aries
Sunday, November 15, 05:07 UT - New Moon, 23:18 Scorpio
Thursday, November 19, 21:04 UT - transiting Mercury exits post-retrograde shadow, 11:40 Scorpio
Yippee!! However, the very next day….
Friday, November 20 - begin “shadow of the eclipse” period
Saturday, November 21, 13:22 UT - transiting Venus enters Scorpio
Saturday, November 21, 20:40 UT - transiting Sun enters Sagittarius
Sunday, November 29, 00:36 UT - transiting Neptune stations direct, 18:10 Pisces
Monday, November 30, 09:30 UT - Full Moon/Eclipse, 8:38 Gemini
And look, I remembered to add the Opportunity Periods!!
Saturday, October 31, 14:49 UT - Monday, November 2, 10:00 UT. “An innovated and constructive period, but because Mercury is retrograde, use it on matters begun before October 7.” (October 7 is when Mercury first entered its “Storm” period, moving less that 40 minutes per day. Merc had entered its pre-Rx shadow way back on September 23, if you prefer to go back that far.)
Wednesday, November 4, 00:43 UT - 13:49 UT. “Clear thinking with this Moon in Gemini OP, even with Mercury stationary.”
Sunday, November 8, 13:46 UT - Monday, November 9, 11:05 UT. “A very good time for closing a deal or for socializing and having fun.”
Tuesday, November 10, 21:53 UT - Wednesday, November 11, 10:58 UT. “Use this OP for productivity, getting organized, and tidying up.”
Saturday, November 14, 23:37 UT - Sunday, November 15, 00:37 UT. “This Cazimi Moon is usable ½ hour before and ½ hour after the Sun-Moon conjunction. If you have something important to start around now, this is a great time to do it.”
Thursday, November 19, 16:16 UT - 17:30 UT. “Just a short time to do the right thing.”
Tuesday, November 24, 01:18 UT - 10:44 UT. “A nice opportunity to gently start something new and positive. Good for anything, especially for the arts and healing.”
Sunday, November 29, 08:33 UT - 16:16 UT. “With the Moon in down-to-earth Taurus, use this OP for practical projects.”
