RUNE OF THE MONTH: The blank rune! We are entering the unknown, the unforeseeable… But also, at work in our lives, is the sum result (karma) of all our thoughts and actions. Everything is possible this month. We are reminded that we are the ultimate creators of our reality and that whatever we are reaping based on our past choices, that we do not enjoy, can be changed with a transformation of attitude.
Uranus re-enters Aries on November 6 until March 7, 2019. This is the last visit of Uranus in Aries, which started in March 2011. Much has changed individually and collectively in that 7 year period. We aggressively shed many aspects of our reality that no longer served us. Uranus remains retrograde this whole month. Its shadow period lasts until April 23rd 2019. The degrees covered this month (0º13’ Taurus – 29º11’ Aries) are symbolized by: “A clear mountain stream” and “The realization of natural boundaries”. Now that we are reaching the end of this planetary cycle, we are able to see more clearly what is important to us. We are also more structured in the pursuit of our true values.
Jupiter enters Sagittarius on November 8 until December 3, 2019. Jupiter in its own sign signals a time of greater faith, greater optimism and greater interest in philosophy, religion, the law and education. Integrity will become an even more important moral value than ever. There will be a whole reassessment of the schooling system. The darker side of religion will be brought to light for a vast purging. Politicians, journalists, lawyers, as well as bankers will also be required more honesty.
Venus turns direct on November 16 at 25º17’ Libra. Its shadow period lasts until December 18. This degree is symbolized by “An eagle and a large white dove change into each other”. When we think, speak and act from our hearts, our influence and authority radiate both peace and power.
Mercury turns retrograde on November 16 at 13º27’ Sagittarius until December 7. Its shadow period remains until December 25, 2018. This degree is represented by: “The Great Pyramid and the Sphinx”. Our integrity (or lack thereof) is brought in sharp focus, as are our spiritual beliefs. We could travel to faraway countries and cultures we have already journeyed to and want to return to, or places we have always been attracted to but never until now had a chance of visiting. A time to become more strongly anchored in our inner wisdom and remember all the ancient knowledge we have brought with us from past initiations.
Neptune remains retrograde this whole month until November 25, 2018. Its shadow period lasts until March 16, 2019. The degree covered this month (13º51’-13º42’ Pisces) is symbolized by: “A lady wrapped in a large stole of fox fur”. In our journey towards enlightenment, we are becoming more aware of our oneness with all that is and express ourselves with more sensitivity, elegance and respect. The old duality where one had to win, forcing another to lose, is less and less relevant. The greater our awareness that we are all connected to each other and to other realms of existence, helps us reach a greater sense of global understanding and compassion.

This month’s intentional meditation started on Wednesday 10/24 when we took out as many blank sheets of paper as you will have intentions and placed them near a window, on a balcony or in a garden so that they would bask in the light of the Full Moon in Taurus. Once that moment had passed, we gathered our Full Moon charged blank sheets and placed them in a folder.
On Wednesday 11/7 on the New Moon in Scorpio, take out your blank full moon charged papers and write on each a concise, positive intention. Place them on a balcony, in a garden or near a window so that they are out by exactly 8:02 AM. Once that moment has passed, staple them together and put them away in a folder expecting the manifestation of all your dreams…

Monday 11/5: Sun trine Neptune (10:41 PM)
We could feel particularly dreamy today and inattentive to details. Not good for signing legal contracts nor any matter requiring groundedness! A day best spent watching an inspiring movie, reading a novel that stimulates our imagination or listening to music.
Tuesday 11/6: Uranus re-enters Aries (10:50 AM until March 7, 2019),

A day of balance of the masculine and the feminine, within ourselves and with others. Excellent for a pleasant social event. Art is attractive. We may want to beautiful our home and dress more elegantly. Our relationship with money is also more harmonious.
Sunday 11/11: Sun Sextile Pluto (7:18 AM),
Even if we feel we could get away with them, ultimatums or forcing issues are not in our best interest today. Our authority is best respected if expressed diplomatically, with cooperation and respect for others’ opinions.
Thursday 11/15: Mars Sextile Uranus (1:31 AM), Mars enters Pisces (2:21 PM until January 2, 2019)
Inventive solutions to challenges are more efficient than sudden, eccentric responses. Our social contacts are likely to be both aggressive and stimulating. During the next 6 weeks, Pisces natives are favored. Going with the flow and blending in are a more efficient use of our energy. Aquatic sports, dance and ice skating feel attractive.
Friday 11/16: Venus turns direct (2:50 AM), Mercury turns direct (5:33 PM)
Kindly refer to the opening paragraph. Communication returns to normal today, but still best to wait until tomorrow for document signing and other important decisions.
Monday 11/19: Mars Square Jupiter (5:30 PM)
Extravagant spending or falling prey to get-rich-quick schemes is ill-advised today. Just by being too outspoken, we could come across as overbearing or arrogant. Best to channel our energy and optimism into constructive projects.
Thursday 11/22: Sun enters Sagittarius (1:02 AM till December 22, 2018)
The next 4 weeks are excellent for long distance travels, learning a foreign language and/or taking an interest in another culture. We could also take an interest in the law, philosophy, religion and be drawn to gaining a university level education. Our faith in life, our optimism and self-confidence should be at an all times’ high.
Saturday 11/24: Neptune turns direct (5:09 PM)
Kindly refer to the opening paragraph.
Sunday 11/25: Sun conjunct Jupiter (10:34 PM)
One of the best days of the year! Perfect for settling legal matters, starting a long-distance journey, learning a new language, furthering our education or taking an interest in religions. Wonderful also for attending an elegant social event. We feel positive and confident.
Monday 11/26: Mercury Square Mars (0:05 AM)
Tempers could be short today. Unwanted words could be exchanged without thinking yet leave an indelible trace. Aggressive opinions could create major dissentions. A day to stay away from others, especially potentially violent people, and be careful while driving.
Tuesday 11/27: Sun conjunct Mercury (1:15 AM), Mars Sextile Saturn (1:30 PM), Mercury conjunct Jupiter (2:27 PM)
A great day for making phone calls and connecting with others. Our interactions are positive, direct and dynamic. We express ourselves with confidence, optimism and tolerance. Our energy is best applied to projects requiring constructive steadiness, endurance and patience.
Friday 11/30: Venus opposite Uranus (6:12 PM)
Our social life could be particularly exciting today, but emotional independence or instability can have terrible consequences, leading to sudden cut ties and unexpected estrangement. Finances can be wildly fluctuating. Best to favor elegance and graciousness and avoid overextending ourselves.
Wishing you a wonderful month of November!
In Loving Light.
