Sky Happenings for November 2012
This month we can expect a climax of the continuing intense, conflicting energies. The US is polarized by a Presidential election campaign, media frenzy and frantic communications. We head into the month on the tail winds of Hurricane Sandy and many on the East Coast face an uphill struggle to restore any semblance of normalcy amidst the ongoing crisis. Although there are major planetary aspects in play, Mercury has a key role in the shaping of events this month.

Thursday November 1st through 3rd
Venus transit opposition to Uranus at 5 degrees Libra/Aries, in a tense T-square with Pluto in Capricorn.
Social unrest and some turmoil is likely, especially for those with prominent planetary placements in early degrees of Cardinal signs, Aries, Cancer, Libra, Capricorn. Could be some surprises and interesting events in personal relationships and security issue in family matters.  Unexpected challenges indicated by houses impacted in the natal chart. Difficult days for the planet and for people, time to reform and remake.

Mercury stations Retrograde - Tuesday November 6th   US Presidential Election Day
Mercury slows down from the beginning of the month and stations retrograde at 4 degrees Sagittarius on the 6th. Mercury was transiting through the sign of Scorpio throughout October and has been a brighter energy in Sagittarius for just a few short days. Today, we will feel the “wobble” as Mercury seems motionless before heading back to the uncompromising energies of Scorpio. This  is not a good time to sign a contract or form an agreement, Mercury retrograde periods are often times when we need to re-visit plans, re-work them and progress can be delayed, but this can help us get it right. People from the past may come back into our life and we return to previous positions. Sagittarius is ruled by Jupiter, the planet of expansion.

Uranus in Aries is in a positive trine aspect to this Mercury event. We can expect sudden disturbances in the airwaves, communication, technology problems and misunderstandings in general. Although the negative political communication has been unprecedented, Uranus interjects universal awareness and we are finally challenged to investigate important topics like Global warming and climate change. Uranus brings the element of surprise, the unconventional and events that are beyond our control.  We should plan on a roller-coaster ride.

The influence of this Mercury station will exaggerate both negative and positive potentials of Mercury, the trickster, hoaxter, but also the “gift of gab” in us is prominent. The air waves will be buzzing, but the truth may be hard to discern. This influence is in play until Mercury stations Direct on November 28th. How this impacts the US Presidential election is discussed in the review of candidate charts.

Venus in Libra makes positive aspect to Jupiter - Friday November 9th
Venus in Libra forms a fortunate trine aspect to Jupiter in Gemini. This could indicate tact and diplomacy provide a positive bridge for solutions to communication issues and in stalemate situations. This influence eases tensions and brings opportunity for respite, relaxation and enjoyment in the midst of challenges. A good time to re-charge and prepare for the dynamic energies accumulating during the month.

Moon in Libra square Uranus and Pluto - Saturday November 10th
The Moon in Libra forms a T-Square to Uranus in Aries and Pluto in Capricorn. This could trigger insecurities, emotional crisis and panic in domestic and family matters. For individuals the houses involved will indicate where we can expect social unrest and possible upheaval. Fortunately the continued presence of Venus in Libra will help calm extreme energies and urges to demonstrate in the streets.

Neptune stations Direct 0 degrees Pisces - Sunday November 11th
Neptune stations direct at zero degrees Pisces. Should we expect more storms on the weather front, will our consciousness and awareness expand? Can our compassion for the less fortunate override our selfishness, disappointment and disillusionment with the status quo? Neptune energies are elusive, difficult to pin down, nothing is what it appears to be. Just like the ocean, attractive and beautiful on the surface, but what is unseen in the hidden depths can destroy us.

Uncovering the skeletons in “our closets” and navigating through our illusions can be a painful process, but worthwhile in terms of self-discovery and awareness of our inter-connectiveness with each other. Neptune erodes concrete foundations, but also dissolves boundaries that limit our ability to access our imagination and creativity and merge with others in greater understanding.

New Moon Solar Eclipse in Scorpio - Tuesday November 13th
The New Moon Solar Eclipse occurs at 22 Scorpio. Eclipses are linked to significant endings and new beginnings in our lives. Our ability to release what is outmoded and regenerate, determines our level of success. Attitude is everything at such times of renewal. The natal house of the eclipse point indicates the area of life that requires transformation in terms of shared resources and attitudes to loss.

Mercury Retrograde re-enters Scorpio - Wednesday November 14th
This eclipse influence is emphasized by the Mercury retrograde back into Scorpio today. The focus is still in attack mode, but also looking beneath the surface and getting to the truth in many situations. Disturbing revelations are likely as deep dark secrets find their way to the light of day. This may be a time of increased covert operations, of probing for information, but motives may be questionable.

The journey back to the Mercury direct station point at 18 degrees Scorpio, takes us back to October 18th,  “World Conflict Resolution Day”. Among interesting events on that day, was also a World Passenger Symposium in Abu Dhabi, convened to discuss air travel security and safety.  Clearly we will be re-visiting issues of Homeland Security and international conflict will be front and center, but the media may still be dishing a lot of dirt.

Mars enters Capricorn - Saturday November 17th
Mars enters the sign of Capricorn. Mars is “exalted” I this sign, a favorable placement for this vigorous, energetic planet. This is a great influence for new beginnings, it is about leadership, careers and business success. We have the chance to deliver our best and rapid forward movement is possible in our aims towards material achievement.

Moon Conjunct Neptune and Chiron in Pisces - November 20th through 21st
The Moon will conjunct Neptune and Chiron in Pisces. Personal wounding and drama may escalate global problems. We can expect media events aimed at eliciting our compassion and concern for our local community and the environment. Our generosity and spirit of unity will be called out for the greater good.

Mercury stations Direct – 27th November
It’s three weeks since Mercury stationed retrograde on the day of the Presidential election and today Mercury turns to forward motion in Scorpio, after a period of back biting and conflict.  We may finally be ready to move forward with acceptance. We may experience the same re-count issues and voter fraud accusations, that occurred the last time Mercury changed direction on election day, in 2000. However, on that occasion Mercury stationed direct on the day, this time the Mercury change is to retrograde motion.

Whichever way the “trickster” Mercury comes out to play, it is the wild card in this election. Will we end protracted campaign disputes with a result on the day, will we return the President to his office, or choose a very different direction?  We may find some insight through the natal charts of the candidates.

Full Moon Lunar eclipse 28th November
What we began on the New Moon eclipse, culminates with this potent full Moon in Gemini, just as Mercury stations direct in Scorpio.    Here we have a further clue to the intense role and major significance Mercury, the planet of communication, information and media continues to play out in our lives. Emotions will be intense and news may be startling, but with Mercury the trickster involved, it is vital to take it all with a grain of salt!
