AstroForecast November 2003
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 façade. 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.
Saturday November 1st witnesses several celestial aspects between planets. Mercury has several harmonious aspects involving Jupiter, Saturn and Chiron. Mercury’s contact with Jupiter broadens perspectives in regards to information, facts, and provides a big picture analysis to open discussions. Saturn’s contact with Mercury enhances all studies with the ability to burn the midnight oil so all details are expertly rendered and meticulously presented. Chiron’s contact with Mercury provides the ability to bridge gaps so a holistic approach is accomplished. An early evening inharmonious contact between Venus and Uranus can indicate relationship troubles especially if a partner becomes too jealous and possessive thus causing the other partner to become cold and aloof.
Sunday November 2, 2003 at 3:42pm is the entrance of Venus into the adventurous sign of Sagittarius for its usual 28-day journey. International and global legal affairs gain attention during this Venus passage in the sign of the Archer. Financial affairs of institutions of higher learning come into the limelight. Women globally demand greater freedoms, some women break glass-ceilings and in general women overall desire greater progress and advancement with long held aspirations.
Monday the 3rd is an inharmonious aspect of the Sun with Neptune that can symbolize some individuals who are strongly identified with the martyr/victim syndrome. General confusion, uncertainty and tentativeness surround some individuals lost in a crushing emotional reality. Pie-in-the-sky gullibility, the denial of grounded reality as well as abandonment and neglect issues can surface for some challenged individuals.
Wednesday the 5th is a harmonious aspect of the Sun with Saturn that can give aid to Monday’s challenged individuals as long as discipline, practical approaches, patience and perseverance are applied. Respect for wise elders can be cultivated. Healthy approaches to those individuals in positions of authority are enhanced. “Valor is recognizing that you are the only one who is afraid” F.P. Jones.
This same Wednesday is the ecliptic shift of the Moon that symbolizes changes with meteorological, seismic and volcanic activities. Some individuals feel frustrated due to running into walls of rigid, narrow-minded, ultra-conservative points of view. Explosive temperamental displays ignite especially when a progressive alternative can be viable.
Several harmonious aspects between the Sun, Jupiter and Chiron occur on Thursday the 6th that can be quite beneficial in many ways. Jupiter’s contact with Chiron on this day emphasizes the ability to expand healing perspectives and insights involving all forms of wounds, whether physical, emotional, mental and/or psychic. The Sun’s contact with Chiron on this day can symbolize that every individual has the inner healing potential either for oneself or for others. The Sun’s contact with Jupiter symbolizes the ability of every individual to embrace faith and belief, especially having faith in oneself and ultimately to believe in oneself. This positive faith and belief in oneself is what will move mountains.
This same Thursday is an inharmonious contact Mars makes with the Solar Eclipse of May 30, 2003 that can symbolize frustration, irritability, annoyance, aggravation, anger and violation of the following key areas that were mentioned in the May AstroForecast 2003: “a two by four board is about to slap our collective consciousness. Intellectual smugness and false pride will have its comeuppance. Enormous changes are about to occur and those individuals able to spin on a dime will have their versatility rewarded, those who cannot are caught in the vacuum.”
Friday the 7th is the Post-Shadow Point of Mars, in other words Mars has now reached the degree of its earlier retrograde position back on July 29, 2003. Here is a quote from the July AstroForecast 2003: “Mars is highly prominent in the Washington DC chart of this station retrograde with important implications involving the military, the executive and judicial branches of government. Duplicity, scandals, cover-ups, ethical violations and international treaties are highlighted with this Mars station. Keywords associated with this retrograde station of Mars are the Earth is now ready for humankind to evolve in new psychic and intuitive parameters that nurture the well being of the planet. The seed of the Earth’s Soul Child is now germinating. A new structure of future humanity will soon appear.”
Saturday the 8th is an important day as two important celestial events are occurring on this day. First, Uranus is stationary direct at 6:44am thus ending its retrograde motion that began last June 7, 2003. Uranus holds the degree position on this date that it held previously on February 19, 2003. Here is a brief quote from the February AstroForecast 2003 associated with this Pre-Shadow of Uranus: “Keywords associated with this Pre-Shadow Point degree of Uranus are the potential for the individual to come to some form of understanding of all possible knowledge. Subtle and ethereal complexities suddenly become simple and straightforward. A true desire for communion with God emerges.”
The annual Taurus Full Moon occurs this same Saturday the 8th at 7:14pm that symbolizes the completion/surrender/letting go phase of the Moon. This Taurus lunation also happens to be a Lunar Eclipse. Release greed, avarice, indulgence, envy, stubbornness, hoarding, gross materialism, possessiveness and jealousy. Angel Azariel is this lunation’s celestial helper to call on for assistance. This Taurus Lunar Eclipse is quite potent as a rare celestial pattern is created in the sky. The celestial pattern created by this Lunar Eclipse is a great Star of David or what is called in astrology a Grand Sextile. This powerful Taurus Lunar Eclipse is now being called the Harmonic Concordance symbolizing a powerful gateway is being opened in the heavens so that Earth and all of its inhabitants can begin the Ascension process of all humanity and life on Earth. Taurus is the sign of the Buddha so enlightenment can stream forth to all humanity with this lunation. Angel Azariel is strongly associated with Pluto in astrology so this angel is assisting this process through very deep and profound transformation. That which is no longer salvageable is destroyed so a new process of renewal, rebirth and regeneration can occur. The Soul of Planet Earth is being awakened to a higher calling of the most penetrating Light and Love of the Infinite and Divine. We are all now ready to manifest irrevocably the Infinite Light and the Divine Love into our earthly existence. The Astro*Carto*Graphy Map of this lunation sensitizes the following geographic areas: in the United States a direct hit with Toledo Ohio and Bangor Maine and in general indirect hits with New York City, Tallahassee Florida, Atlanta, Cincinnati Ohio, Phoenix, Tucson and Sedona Arizona, Las Vegas Nevada, Salt Lake City Utah, Helena and Butte Montana, and the entire West Coast. Across the globe the following areas are sensitized: San Jose Costa Rica, Rio de Janeiro and Brasilia Brazil, Dublin Ireland, London England, Barcelona and Madrid Spain, Moscow Russia, Bombay and New Delhi India, Tokyo Japan, and Perth and Marble Bar Australia. Keywords associated with this Taurus lunation are knowledge and force come to loggerheads. These two powers are being alloyed into a new substance that simultaneously releases long held karma and frees dharma into the known world. In essence humanity is poised on a cliff of no return; either a great leap of faith is about to occur or the plunge into the abyss is about to happen.
Monday the 10th Venus opposes the Solar Eclipse chart of May 30, 2003 so issues of procrastination, indecisiveness, laziness, indulgence, vacillation, apathy and indifference can arise. Here is a quote from the May AstroForecast 2003 that can be relevant: “Keywords associated with this lunation are a two by four board is about to slap our collective consciousness. Intellectual smugness and false pride will have its comeuppance. Enormous changes are about to occur and those individuals able to spin on a dime will have their versatility rewarded, those who cannot are caught in the vacuum.”
This same Monday is the Apogee Moon (farthest distance of the Moon to Earth) that symbolizes the ability to cultivate objective and impartial emotions/feelings. There is a great need to take action in regards to intelligence planning and military strategies. Tax plans and personal entrepreneurial strategies also need balance.
Mixed celestial aspects occur on Tuesday the 11th with the first one being a harmonious aspect between Venus and Neptune. This aspect is excellent for prayers and meditations involving global peace. Advocacy for the rights and plights of immigrants stir great compassion. An inharmonious aspect between Mercury and Uranus can spell trouble between those individuals that want to retain secrecy in all affairs with those individuals who desire more public openness especially in regards to public expenditures. Accident proneness can be very high especially involving public mass transportation. A terrorist attack can also occur. Mars has an inharmonious aspect to the Solar Eclipse chart of December 4, 2002 thus frustration, irritability, anger, annoyance, aggravation and/or violation can be thrown into the mix. Here is a brief quote from the December AstroForecast 2002: “Keywords associated with this lunation are surrender ingrained prejudices and subjective, pre-mature foregone conclusions. Humility reorients the ego to sacrifice false pride and arrogance.”
Mercury enters the sign of Sagittarius on Wednesday the 12th at 1:19am for an approximate 3-week journey. A positive period to negotiate international diplomacy can be highlighted with this journey of Mercury. This energy also opens the ability for individuals to recognize, seize and develop opportunities that provide growth, expansion, progress and advancement. Carpe Diem! “A wise man will make more opportunities than he finds” Sir Francis Bacon.
Venus and Mars have an inharmonious aspect on this same Wednesday that can symbolize antagonism and strife involving partnerships. A know-it-all attitude coupled with a negative moralistic approach involving negative judgments about martyr/victimhood issues, gullibility and escapist fantasy non-realities create disharmony. Anger about guilt, shame, and blame complexes ignites testiness that undermines any chances for compromise or reconciliation. “Mistakes are part of the debts that one pays for living fully” Sophia Loren.
This same Wednesday Venus makes a contact with the Solar Eclipse chart of December 4, 2002 that symbolizes how can healthy compromises, attempts of reconciliation, legal settlements and new partnerships be created to provide ultimate peace.

Compassion for the elderly and their livelihood needs is focused. Collective ideals take hold in the national consciousness that eventually can become real.
Friday the 14th is an inharmonious aspect between Venus and Jupiter that can symbolize excesses, overindulgences, wild spending sprees, largesse and gross abrogation of values and freedoms. Some of these behaviors are compensatory due to issues of devaluation or invalidation. Legal cases involving religion, higher education, health systems, international diplomacy and trade matters can ignite firestorms.
Monday the 17th a couple of aspects occur that have the potential for positive directions. First, Mars has a harmonious contact with Chiron that can symbolize efforts made to activate and energize true healing with issues of inadequacy and abandonment/neglect can be successful. Self-motivation is the most important stimulus any individual can utilize with this harmony of Mars – Chiron. Second, Venus is conjunct Pluto on this same day that symbolizes a “seeding” period of these two planets’ energies. New far-reaching perspectives of healthy sharing within all relationships that deepen truth, honesty and loyalty are important. The cherishing and treasuring of universal freedoms and universal values are important. These two planets will oppose one another next May 2, 2004 so whatever is being “seeded” now can be defined and clarified then.
Mercury opposes the Solar Eclipse chart of May 30, 2003 on Tuesday the 18th that symbolizes the clarification and definition cycle of Mercury to this eclipse chart. The general population is looking for information in regards to international affairs. How well informed are we as the public receiving information from news bureaus?
Wednesday the 19th is a harmonious aspect of Mercury with Neptune that symbolizes compassionate thoughts, inspired communications and active meditation. Maritime and pharmaceutical news can be important to notice.

Here is a quote from the September AstroForecast 2003 that will provide insight: “Mars and Jupiter were conjunct one another last July 3, 2002, which was their “seeding” time period and with this September opposition now Mars and Jupiter are defining what was “seeded” in July 2002. Here is a brief quote from the July AstroForecast 2002: “Areas receiving attention will involve ever-growing military needs that can potentially have costly overruns. The housing markets can witness rapid developments in regards to inflation especially household supplies and repairs. Bold individuals with great courage embark on new journeys that open new enterprising and entrepreneurial horizons.” Third, the Moon has an ecliptic shift on this same Thursday that symbolizes changes with meteorological, seismic and volcanic activities. The executive branch of government needs to make some very conscious decisions and take conscious actions in regards to agricultural affairs, national security and investment companies.

This also happens to be a Solar Eclipse that will tend to have lingering effects that last a minimum of 6 months to 18 months total.

This is an extremely potent Solar Eclipse with this Perigee Moon alignment to Earth. International treaties and settlements are very important.

Extreme fanatical viewpoints are overdue for healthy measures of tolerance to create new bridges of vigorous communications.

Wednesday the 26th at 7:07 pm is the entrance of beautiful Venus into the sign of Capricorn for the following 28-day journey. Relationships, finances and values will be under the scrutiny of reality-check Capricorn. Solidifying security and commitments in the above-mentioned areas would be a positive focus. Release the need for worry and knee-jerk reactions to fretful situations.
Jupiter makes an alignment with the upcoming Virgo Full Moon of February 10, 2004 on this same Wednesday in November. Military intelligence, cost effectiveness and scandals involving shady partnerships have an impact on a national/international scale. Hypocrisy, double standards, hypercriticism, fraud, hush funds and scathing verbal attacks are other forms of fallout with this alignment.
The last major alignment of the month of November occurs Saturday the 29th, which is the Pre-Shadow Point degree position of Mercury referring to the degree position Mercury will hold when it is station direct next January 6, 2004. These two dates may have correspondence to one another. Information from the executive branch of government is important in relations to military campaigns and subsequent losses of life due to grave tactical errors. It is in January that a full congressional investigation may be launched to determine the source of these errors.
