Kindly note that all the days and times given below are, after November 4th in PST (Pacific Standard Time). For Rocky Mountain Time, add 1 hour. For Central Time, add 2 hours. For Eastern Time, add 3 hours. For Alaskan Time, subtract 1 hour. For Hawaii-Aleutian Time, subtract 2 hours. For Greenwich, add 8 hours.
Mercury turns direct on November 1st at 23º26′ Libra at 3:59′ PM. This degree is symbolized in the Sabian Symbols by “a butterfly with a third wing on its left side”. The past three weeks have been about finding balance and harmony between the different aspects of our lives. As we have reached a place of peace within ourselves, new skills emerge from within our subconscious, talents we didn’t even know existed which enable us to fly high and explore unknown territories. This is an exciting time of discovery and expansion of who we are which is always so much more than we see ourselves as.
Mars turns retrograde on November 15 at 12º27′ Cancer at 0:24′ AM, until January 30, 2008 when it will have reached 24º05′ Gemini. “A gardener trimming large palm trees”. In the next few months, our physical energy will be more focused and directed inward rather than expansive. As we take care of what hinders our chance to grow, and patiently removed the obstacles one after the other, we shall be rewarded by an expansion beyond our wildest dreams. The more grounded we remain, the more solid our progression will be, even if at times it seems painfully slow. Nothing must be allowed to stop our inner progress. It is important that we are attentive to details.
Uranus will turn direct on November 24th at 14º46′ Pisces at 2:16 AM. Since June 23rd, we had been asked to question everything in our lives, as well as in our surroundings, and to significantly shift our world-views in often strange ways. On November 24th, we are reaching the conclusion of this period of freeing ourselves from what no longer serves us and asserting our own individuality maybe even rebelliously. This particular degree is symbolized by “an officer instructing his men before a simulated assault under a barrage of live shells”. We have learned that to be forewarned is to be forearmed. We are ready to deal with any kind of danger and that, in itself, insures that there will be none. As we have grown confident in our inner strength, we have also shifted our external reality so as to ward off what could have harmed us. The more enlightened we become, the more we “see” through the illusions presented to us, the stronger we become.

Our intentional meditation started on October 25 with the Full Moon in Taurus. Take out your Full Moon charged sheets of paper and on each, write a clear, concise and positive intention. Place your intentions out (on a balcony, garden or near a window) so that they can bask in the energy of the New Moon in Scorpio on Friday 11/9 at exactly 3:03 PM. Once that exact moment has passed, gather your papers, staple them together, write the date and put them away, in the positive expectancy of a miracle!
On Saturday 11/24 at exactly 6:30 AM, place some new, blank sheets of paper out to be charged by the Full Moon in Gemini. After that exact moment has passed, gather your sheets, put them away until the next New Moon in Sagittarius, which will occur on Sunday 12/9 at exactly 9:40 AM.
