Mercury unites with Saturn in Capricorn
Trump Versus Democrats
Mañana does not mean tomorrow. It just means not today. Mexican Saying
This planetary partnership will emphasize serious communication and prudence, especially if you are a Capricorn. Indeed, politics on all sides will carry a heavy weight that will be hard to dismiss, especially in regards to America’s Government Shutdown (the longest shutdown in American history).
Saturn (the planet of authority and bureaucracy) is known to take its time, and is in dignity in Capricorn, so if doubts about various situations cross your mind, have no fear, as Mercury is a fast moving planet and soon will be on its merry way away from the heaviness of Saturn. Still, be aware of any idea, concern, or thought that feels unusually urgent- as this is likely a sign of where you’ll need to put your attention in days ahead.

The full moon in Sagittarius, Truth will come- with a price.
It is a necessary provision to understand that it is impossible to prevent everything.
Sagittarius James Comey’s testimony with the U.S. Senate comes at the full moon in Sagittarius, the sign of higher truth, and intelligence. Like Mr. Comey, we will all have an opportunity to state our truth in a particular area of our life- but it won’t be a walk in the park. The full moon will have a heavy weight on its shoulders, as it will be in close contact with Saturn, the planet of restriction, delay, and conformity (and also the planet associated with the government, hence, in Comey’s case, President Donald Trump). Saturn entered Sagittarius in 2014 on Christmas Eve, and will enter Capricorn on December 19, 2017. If you are a Sagittarius, you have likely felt the weight of Saturn’s influence since 2015.
A promotion, travel opportunity, or educational pursuit has likely tested you in many ways, and required you to focus on a singular vision. This comes to mind in Comey’s case regarding the e-mails of Hillary Clinton, and most recently the investigation of Russia. As a mutable fire sign, Sagittarius by nature is heroic and adventurous, and thrives off freedom, so you may feel uncomfortable in your skin as you make the adjustment to adhering to the structure and order that Saturn demands.
The good news (especially if you’re a Sagittarius), is that Jupiter, the planet that rules Sagittarius, will awaken from a four month retrograde and station direct on the same day of the arrival of the full moon-timing so fabulous you would think it’s a gift from God! Now in Libra, the sign of justice, Jupiter’s power will gain momentum, and encourage you to remain as diplomatic as possible as you navigate new territory (sound a bit like Comey’s current plight- doesn’t it)? This may involve a legal case, business partnership, or romantic relationship. You’ll likely have new knowledge that will help you see the bigger picture so you can tap in your wisdom, and capitalize on your best option.
Ultimately, this full moon will mark the end of a certain way of life, making you “grow up”, and face reality not as you would like to see it, but as it really is. Sagittarius is known for being the zodiac’s most optimistic sign, however, so even if your reality is far from ideal (as with Mr. Comey), the fire of Sagittarius will help you stay light on your feet, and look on the brighter side of the truth.
Lessons from the Sagittarius Full Moon are as follows:
ARIES (March 21- April 19)
A higher goal will likely reach and end point. Reflect on all that you’ve learned so you can continue to develop into your full potential. If you’re in a global pursuit, you may reach an impasse, which likely be blessing, in the long run. A citizenship matter will likely be completed, if you’d like to relocate- and the outcome will likely have a sobering effect.
TAURUS (April 20 -May 20)
Trust will be the main theme for you in your closest relationship, and within your business, if you’re an entrepreneur or in finance. This full moon will teach you there is great value in conservation, and taking a spiritual approach to your material life. Once you’re willing to give you what you’ve got, you’ll realize you have more than enough to sustain you.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21)
Opposition from an authority figure will likely make you take a second look at your relationship- which is probably overdue for examination. As soon as you think you have a clearing, you’ll likely be delayed- have patience Gemini, as the full moon has an important lesson to pass on. Abide by the rules, and you’ll gain the wisdom required to make a breakthrough, just in the nick of time.
CANCER (June 22-July 22)
You’ve likely make great strides in your work, but now you may be too wiped out to celebrate your success. Take time to rest, and settle in to a new confidence you’ve recently gained, as this will help you shift into a higher gear that will allow for less momentum, and a smoother ride.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)
Well, Leo, looks like it’s time to see the writing on the wall when it comes to a matter of the heart. If you’re a parent, your child will likely challenge you to rise to the occasion, and enact your authority. Although this may be hard for you (as you have soft heart), it will be the best thing you can do for child’s future. In romance, you’ll be ready to commit, or move on – either way, your heart will likely know best.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
Although home, family, or emotional matter may leave you feeling slightly despondent, you’ll also feel grounded, and secure. Take stock of the work you’ve put into creating a solid home base, and you’ll realize you’ve done a fine job. This full moon will likely show you that responsibility comes with sacrifice, but the reward you receive will have lasting value.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
However difficult it might be to make a final decision, the full moon will compel you to make up your mind, despite the consequences. Although it may feel as though you’ve been shoved in a corner, it’s likely you’ve had ample time to see all sides of your circumstances. Now is the time to trust in the power of your logic, and move on.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
Hold on to what you have Scorpio, but not too tightly. This will be your lesson as the full moon illuminates your chart’s arena of income and ownership (the second house). Although you may not be entirely happy about the outcome of business endeavor or financial goal, at least now you can come to a full acceptance of where things stand- which will lead you becomming a fiscal master.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
Where you end and your duty begins will likely draw a bold line between your integrity and responsibility. The best thing you can do for yourself, and everyone involved, is stand by your truth, as this will likely be the ultimate constituent that shines light of what you’re made of. You’re much more solid that you think, Sagittarius, but you must vehemently defend yourself before you can tap into your greatest resource; your inner strength is as solid as gold.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
A recovery will likely take longer than you expected- which will likely send you in a deep state of inner reflection. You may think you somehow missed an important step that would have allowed you to avoid what you’re now experiencing- but it’s likely the opposite is true. Cherish the time you now have to heal- and the light of the moon will renew your faith.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
A close friendship may reach a turning point, which will likely affect you deeply, as Aquarius is the sign of camaraderie, and good will. Try not to take it personally if you feel slighted by someone you’ve known for a long time. It’s likely the full moon is sending you a special message- it likely has to do with expanding your social circle, and taking on a greater role of leadership.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)
Sometimes when you reach the top, the view looks different than you imagined. You’ll likely find this true as the full moon illuminates the pinnacle of your chart. Trust you’re exactly where you need to be however, despite how uncomfortable it may feel. It’s time to draw the curtains, Pisces, but know that now you’ll be ready for a bigger and better role.

NOVEMBER MONTHLY HOROSCOPE FOR ALL ZODIAC SIGNS
I choose my cards. Play them to the best of my ability. Move on to the next hand. Hillary Clinton (Scorpio).
The new moon in Scorpio at the end of October will carry into the beginning of November and set the tone for this month. Imagination, romance, and compassion will run deep, as the moon will be in beautiful alignment with Neptune, the planet of idealism, and emotional inspiration. Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces will be at home with their feelings, and comfortable in their own skin. Fire and air signs may be challenged to integrate a more fluid, sensitive way of relating, into their life. Earth signs will be stimulated to go within and get in touch with their sensuality.
The United States Election day will fall on Tuesday, November 8. The moon will enter Pisces, 4:45 EST. Hope will likely permeate the air, as Pisces (ruled by Neptune), is a spiritual sign that is most optimistic. Mars, the planet of assertion and strength, will be at the tail end of Capricorn. This is an exalted placement for Mars, as Mars loves the industriousness stamina that Capricorn naturally exudes. I have a feeling tension will be high, yet contained. If you are a Capricorn, an important project may need to be wrapped up, despite any insistence to get it ‘just right’. As for the presidential election, Hillary Clinton is a Scorpio, with a Scorpio ascendant and Pisces moon, while Donald Trump is a Gemini with a Leo ascendant (conjunct the fixed star Regulus), and Sagittarius moon.
Although the moon moves very quickly, it does represent the public, and suggests voters will be feeling sensitive, emotional, and compassionate. The Feminine will have an edge over the Masculine (a Trump virtue), as Pisces is known to be gentle, loving, and ultimately compassionate to those who are less fortunate. Jupiter, the planet of good will and politics, will be on Ms. Clinton’s side. Currently at 13 degrees of Libra, (the sign of justice), Jupiter is approaching a sextile (a fabulous connection), with Ms. Clinton’s Mars Pluto conjunction (in the ninth house of politics). Jupiter is also very close to Ms. Clinton’s natal Neptune, ( 11 degrees of Libra), in the eleventh house of bureaucracy. This harmonious aspect strongly suggests the fruition of a cherished life long dream. Yet, Uranus, the planet up upheaval and surprise, is in the most masculine sign of the zodiac, (Aries). Now at odds with Pluto, the planet of irreversible change in Capricorn (ie. the status quo), anything is possible, as Trump’s raise to the nomination as proved. Moving on from politics to pure enjoyment…
The full moon In November will arrive on Monday, November 14, in Taurus, where the moon is exalted. If your birthday falls within five days of May 11, you’ll feel this full moon the most. Venus, the ruler of this full moon, will be partile (in the same degree), of Mercury, suggesting honest conversation about love, artistic expression, and social justice, (especially in business, because Venus will be in Capricorn). Although the full moon will make no major aspects to any planets, the exaltation in Taurus will make this time quite luxurious and sensual- definitely a great time to indulge in fine wine and chocolate!
If you are in the United States and will celebrate Thanksgiving, God bless you! The planetary weather will be harsh on Thursday, November 24. As Jupiter, the planet of optimism, confronts Pluto, the planet of strong-willed authority, everyone will be busy trying to look good to get their own way. You may find yourself pressured to eat when you’re outright full, or take on extra guests while you’re left alone (or crowded) in an overheated kitchen. The variations of what could go awry are endless. The best way you can protect yourself and make the most of this day will be to have a keen sense of proportion. Know ahead of time what your limit is, and commit to it. Pluto (a more powerful planet), will ultimately override Jupiter. With Pluto in Capricorn, (a serious sign), it won’t take much to gather the courage you need to honor your integrity.
November will end with a tango between Neptune and the new moon in Sagittarius. You may be overly optimistic about a romance or artistic endeavor, (no matter what sign you are). Don’t be afraid to over-commit, as long as you’re prepared to pull back a bit, to regain your balance. It will be challenging to fully separate from your emotions and think rationally. You’ll be better to go with your intuition, and take a flexible approach. If you can prepare yourself to go in any direction, you may not arrive where you expected, but you’ll still land in very good place, where you’ll have agency.

TOM BROKAW & RONALD REAGAN
TWO SIDES OF THE DIFFERENT AQUARIAN COIN
Word has been going around for a while now that we are approaching the “Age of Aquarius”, but what does that really mean? Neptune has just moved out of Aquarius into Pisces last Friday, February 3rd…this introduces a whole new connection to all things “Neptunian” ie. spirituality, music, dance, the healing arts, mysticism, religion, pharmaceuticals, hydraulics…anything that is dreamy, idealistic, and allows us access to other planes of consciousness will undergo a significant shift from the experimental, erratic, ingenious Aquarius, to Neptune’s true home of Pisces, the sign that has ‘been through it all’, and ends up at the very end…back home. The essence of Pisces is beautifully expressed by TS. Eliot’s famous lines: ‘We shall not cease from exploration, and the end of all our exploring will be to arrive where we started and know the place for the first time’. I think of Aquarius as that last step before reaching the final destination.
So, with this in mind, our current age of Pisces, moving into Aquarius, however long it takes, is akin to a spiritual backtracking. Perhaps we are missing something important and are getting another chance to learn that one single thing that could change everything for humanity. The theories are endless. What is for sure is at some point this Earth will have actually arrived into a new Aquarian Age, and it’s fun to ponder what this could mean for us now.
I normally don’t think of Tom Brokaw and Ronald Reagan as being similar, yet when I learned they shared the same Aquarian birthday of February 6th, my mind opened up to the possibility…that they are in fact, reflections of similar ideals, expressed in very different ways. Aquarius is the sign of change, for the sake of evolution, to ‘save’ humanity. They intrinsically feel themselves as part of a larger group, yet are driven to stand by their own beliefs at any cost. They truly are ‘for the people’, although their vision of what ‘the people’ need may be drastically different because their values are so infused with individual passion from their own personal experiences.
We all have a little Aquarius in us…that part that so passionately believes in something that we must share it…we must spread it across our friends, our community, our society, our nation, as if we were spreading our favorite jam across a slice of perfectly crisp dry toast… once the toast has been adorned with the jam, everything is perfectly edible and balanced, and we are free to enjoy.
Even though I’m not much of a news person, I personally am very fond of Tom Brokaw. There is something about him that strikes me as utterly genuine. I believe Reagan had a similar gift…people just ‘liked’ him, perhaps without even knowing why. This is the power of Aquarius. I believe Aquarians are automatically hard-wired into a unique, meaningful reality…it’s up to the rest of us to decide if we want to s ride with them, or find the Aquarius in our own selves, and dare to go a different way, a way that although may isolate us, will surely be our very own and can lead us to the home we all share as an evolving human species~
NEW MOON ENTERS SCORPIO at 3° 3′ 0″
A COMMUNAL DANCE
Today the moon takes its first step on the dark, captivating stage of Scorpio. It happens to be Hillary Rodam’s Clinton’s birthday today as well. As Secretary of State, I think this new moon would grant her extra power and intuition. Keeping important information undercover while strategizing every single political move, should come naturally to her this year. The Sabian Symbol for this new moon is ‘A House Raising’, suggesting power through community. So, although I’m not very political, I was intrigued and decided to see what Hillary’s been up to. Check out this link for a taste of this Scorpio New Moon energy in action!
I wonder if America’s efforts in building a virtual embassy website for Iran will in fact help broaden contacts with regular Iranians…? After all, this Sabian Symbol is all about bringing people together to work for a higher cause. I’m not sure I can picture it. When I a saw this clip from Harrison Ford’s Witness, it helped…Scorpio’s passion and inspiration go a long way~
