AstroForecast October 2002
All times Central Time Zone
The month of November begins with the Sun transiting the mysterious,
enigmatic sign of Scorpio. Scorpio probes through the depths,
pierces and unravels conundrums, and instigates alchemical processes
so regeneration and rebirth can emerge either collectively or
personally. Although classically a water element sign, Scorpio can
retain a cool exterior appearance that totally masks the panoply of
human emotions that can seethe and boil underneath that cool fašade.
Positive expressions of Scorpio are associated with sharing,
merging, bonding, intimacy and psychological understanding.
Negative expressions can range from obsessive/compulsive behaviors,
rage, jealousy, envy, covetousness, control and manipulation, mind
games, mind plays, power struggles and power games. The angel that
rules the month of November is Adnachiel and the angel that rules
the sign of Scorpio is Barakiel.

relationships, financial resolve and intent as well as mastery of
personal values. Venus traveling in the sign of Scorpio intensifies
her search for depth, relevance and soulful dialogue in
relationships. Some partnerships experience a purging of guilt,
shame and blame complexes. A process of elimination of unhealthy
attachments and demands will witness some old relationships dying or
life support being withdrawn completely. "Love is.to realize
something extremely difficult to accept, that something besides

The weekend of the 9th - 10th is a time period in November to
