The main influence this week is the planet Neptune turning direct on Sunday, November 7; this whole week will experience the building up of the energy. Neptune does a good job of tearing up our hopes and dreams as he exposes the lies and delusions that comprise so much of our aspirations. I don’t intend to be negative about human nature, just realistic. So when the bitter dregs of our delusions finally abate, Neptune paves the way for the shining light of Universal Reality to enter our lives.
It is election time once again in the US, and the aftermath of the election could be interesting indeed as Neptune starts to assert itself more and more in the days following. I have more posted about the election in this article.
Monday, Nov 1
A very interesting day for debate, study, contemplation, or speaking out. Over-enthusiasm and base motivations may skew results; emotions and passions will be strong with an emphasis on connecting. (Sun sesquiquadrate Jupiter, Mercury semisquare Pluto, Venus sextile Pluto, Venus biquintile Uranus)
Tue and Wed, Nov 2-3
No peaking influences
Thursday, Nov 4
Enthusiasm may swell, which may somewhat skew perceptions of things; making them seem better than they really are. Intolerance of rigid status quo adherence in people’s attitudes may surge as well, causing some unexpected life-developments. (Sun sesquiquadrate Uranus, Mercury trine Jupiter)
Friday, Nov 5
The sense of adventure and risk-taking will be strong, bringing to mind the phrase “fortune favors the bold”. Be careful however of impulsiveness and impetuosity getting in the way of knowing when is the right time to act decisively. Relationships and cordiality will be favored as well. (Mars tridecile Jupiter, Sun parallel Venus)
Saturday, Nov 6
Attitudes and perceptions have a higher probability of being negatively colored; pessimism may be high, and deceitful behaviors may be more inclined to occur. This may be more of a day to reflect on the so-called misfortunes that have shaped our lives, and striving to see the higher purposes behind them. (Mercury square Neptune, semisquare Saturn)
Sunday, Nov 7
Today Neptune turns direct, so a lot of Neptunian stuff will be happening: energy may be low and discouragement/confusion may be high, there could be problems with oil, chemicals, gases, or liquids in general, there could be a lot of deceptions going on, and creativity and spirituality could be making some turning points in the lives of many. Today probably is not a day to make major decisions, going with the flow is more in line with the astrology of the day. Chrystal clarity can be a state just too limiting for Neptune, as it prefers to see a universe of interconnected things within a seemingly limited thing.
Monday, Nov 8
Cordiality will be high and artistic, cultural, and spiritual issues are favored. Be careful of spending too much energy, time, or resources on what turn out to be frivolous ventures. (Venus biquintile Jupiter)
