Astrology Report For November

Guest article By Dorene Carrel
   November is a dynamic month, highlighted by a Solar Eclipse, four planetary stations and another Uranus/Pluto square. These stations include Jupiter, Mercury, Neptune and Chiron. As earth and water signs are emphasized, much activity can happen on deep inner levels and emerge as new realizations or significant shifts in one’s beliefs and values.
   The first week in November is the most potent and intense. On November 1, the fourth of seven exact squares occur between Uranus and Pluto. This means we are past the half-way point of this long evolutionary cycle of social and cultural change, which continues until 2015. This aspect can bring personal crises, breakdowns or breakthroughs. The last square aspect was on May 20, 2013. If a significant change occurred back then, it will come up for another review at this time. The next Uranus/Pluto square will occur on April 21, 2014. Much opportunity can also come at this time, but be sure to clarify details as Mercury is still retrograde until November 10.
   The New Moon Solar Eclipse occurs on November 3 at 11 Scorpio. It is aligned with Saturn, Mercury and the North Node, all in Scorpio. This combination can take us on a deeper journey with the themes of emotional intensity, power and control, penetration, secrecy, fears, endings, death, healing and self-mastery. The Scorpio emphasis will also help us in gaining deeper understanding and the core essence or truth of a matter. Eclipses are extra potent new or full moons that can signify new beginnings and endings. The last solar eclipse in Scorpio was in November 1994. The Sabian symbol for this degree, “An official embassy ball,” suggests the mutual empowerment that can occur in uniting with like-minded others for greater accomplishment.
   On November 6, Jupiter turns retrograde at 20 Cancer 30. This station begins several weeks of inner reflection involving one’s feelings, home, family, food, nourishment, dependency and security issues. A Sun/Saturn alignment on this day can bring more seriousness, structure and discipline to our thinking.
   Mercury turns direct on November 10 at 2 Scorpio 29. Thinking and communication should start to be clearer at this time, along with less stress dealing with technology, computers, traffic, etc. Research and planning results can be put into concrete action at this time. A broader, more visionary perspective can be gained on November 12 when the Sun trines Jupiter. This would be a good time to take action to create more prosperity, or one can now reap the results of a past action.
   On November 13, Neptune turns direct at 2 Pisces 34. This is a gentle shift that encourages us to actualize our ideals and spirituality in a more outward fashion. Our experience of Neptunian subjects, such as UFOs, shadow people, frequency shifts, auras, etc., can become more prominent in the next several weeks.
   Relationships can undergo some difficulties on November 14-15 when Venus in Capricorn aligns with Pluto and squares Uranus. Our personal changes can suddenly impact our relationships, resulting in either new growth or separation. A deeper understanding can also be found. This could be a tricky time in handling finances and it is best to avoid acting on one’s impulses.
   The Full Moon occurs on November 17 at 25 Taurus 26. Taurus is an earth sign that emphasizes the themes of resources and values, along with being comfortable, dependable, loyal and stable. The shadow side of both Taurus and Scorpio is a resistance to change and being too willful. This is a favorable time for persistence with our goals, making them more concrete and useful. The Sabian symbol keynotes for these degrees emphasize having appreciation for the goodness in our lives, as well as the ability to adjust to new situations by tuning into their requirements.
   On November 19, Chiron turns direct at 9 Pisces. The wounded healer archetype within us now becomes more prominent, as we can freely give and receive healing support from others. Mercury aligns with Saturn in Scorpio on November 25, providing us with a deeper, more structured focus. On November 27 and 28, both Mercury and Venus align with Jupiter, which favors harmony in communications and social gatherings. A harmonious trine from the Sun to Uranus on November 30 brings new creative insights.
   December features a rare Venus retrograde cycle. Best wishes for a joyful and prosperous autumn.

The Sacred Holiday of Halloween

Do you ever think about what Halloween really means?  It used to be a very sacred holiday that was celebrated for many, many years. The reason it was so sacred was because it honored the Goddess or feminine energy. Then the male patriarch took over and turned it into a different type of holiday. One of the symbols of Halloween is the spider. The Hopi Indians have always honored their creator goddess who is Spider Woman. She is the one who spins her web that encompasses everything. She weaves the light grid around the world.
In the Bible it talks about the 12 tribes of Israel, which are all male. The 12 tribes are symbolic of the 12 signs of the zodiac. There are actually 13 tribes or 13 signs. The 13th tribe is the sign of the Goddess (called Dinah in the Bible) who has been hidden for eons of time. Goddess energy is of course the love energy that is within everyone, both male and female.
One of the predictions of the Mayans was that the ships of light would return on July 11, 1991. This happened in Mexico when there was a total solar eclipse which started the cycle of the return of the Goddess. This is when we first moved into the sixth sun. The sixth sun (sign) of the zodiac is Virgo, the sign of the Goddess. On August 22 of 2013 we stepped into the higher frequency of this energy. The Goddess energy (love) is now here.
We have been in a long hard challenge with our dark side and many people are worn out from this battle. This started big time after the Harmonic Convergence in August of 1987. We had to acknowledge and neutralize the darkness within us. This was a major job and it has taken us many years to release all our fears, anger, and negative thoughts. Now love and light are starting to win. Soon there will be many people who will acknowledge the love energy within themselves and life will start to change.
After our Sun lined up with the Galactic Center in December of 2012 we moved into what is called by scientists the Dark Rift in space. This is what is also called the Photon Belt and this is a belt of very high frequency energy. This is one of the reasons this year has been so hard for so many people. It put us into fast-speed transformation. I received an email this morning that I found very interesting so I am putting in the link to this article. The article is by Karen Downing – the link is: . Then click on the article for October 21st.
The 13th sign of the zodiac is named Ophiuchus/ Asclepius. Many people know about the ancient dream healing centers that were in ancient Greece. What most people don’t know is that it was Isis who was the creator of these sites. Then the Goddess went behind the scenes for several years and now it is time for her to reemerge and become the creator she was meant to be. Isis is the ruler of the 13th sign. If you put a circle in the middle of an Astrology chart and connect that circle with all of the other signs you will have the web of light that she (Spider Woman-Isis) has woven.
People say we have 12 strands of DNA and 12 chakras. In reality we have 13. Our 13th chakra is aligned with the super-galactic center that is a gateway for the purest energies and is associated with the Divine Mother. This super-galactic center is on 29 degrees Virgo and the exact point of entrance on Earth (according to the Mayans) is Orkney Island, Scotland. This energy also focuses down through Stonehenge into England, which was the original Holy Land.
This year is 2013 with an emphasis on the number 13. The numbers of the Mayan Calendar are based on 20 and 13. The number 13 rules change and transformation and the number 20 is the number of glyphs in the calendar. The 20th glyph is the glyph of the super-galactic center, also called the Great Central Sun. This Sun holds 27 galaxies in place plus the Milky Way Galaxy. The number 13 is transformation on a large scale, and we have really gone through a lot of transformation this year. This is what the 13th sign is all about-transformation into the light.
The Sun will soon be in the sign of Asclepius/Isis starting this Halloween.  The symbol of Asclepius is of a man/woman holding a snake with two feet on the elliptic. The first foot of Isis is on the elliptic on Halloween for a short period of time, which is a couple of days. The second foot is on the elliptic starting on November 30 to December 16th. If you were born during these time periods you are an Asclepian. A very important event is happening now. Halloween is the time when the veil is very thin and there is easy access to the other dimensions. It just so happens that there is a black hole (gateway) on seven degrees Scorpio.
This year, on the day before Halloween, the Sun will be on seven degrees Scorpio along with the North node. This marks an important event. In the Dreamspell calendar a doorway opens on October 30 and 31st. The Dreamspell glyph for October 30 is the glyph of the Great Central Sun at Orkney Island, and the glyph for October 31 is birth. Looks like some of us will be coming out of the dark tunnel we have been going through for so long. It’s time to come out into the light and be reborn as great Beings of light.
October 31st is the birth glyph, November 1st is All Souls day, and November 2 is the Day of the Dead. Then we have a solar eclipse on November 3rd.  These days mark an important period of time. Then the Sun will conjunct Saturn on November 6th which means the beginning of a new cycle. The Sun conjuncts Saturn every year, although this year it is conjunct during this special time period. The degree meaning of this conjunction is ‘early steps in the development of a mind seeking to be attuned to the higher level of human evolution’. Then we have Mercury going direct on November 10th.
Halloween lost its meaning many years ago when the Goddess was pushed out of sight. Maybe we could bring back the true meaning of Halloween this year, which is honoring the love that is within all of us. We could activate our 13th chakra and our heart energy. Our heart is where our crystal seed is located. It’s in the secret chamber of our heart. Then we can ascend (move into a higher frequency) and become Crystal Beings of light. Ascension does not happen all at once. It is a process and as we remove more of our hidden challenges we become lighter and of a higher frequency.
What are the techniques of ascension?  
It is the process of praising God, or the god spark that is within all of us. It’s being grateful for everything, and loving yourself and others. You can’t love others until you learn to love yourself. If you do those three simple techniques of praise, gratitude, and love, you will be on your path to Ascension. We are all great Beings of love. We just forgot that we were. Now it’s wake-up time. Wake-up and become like an innocent child. Feel the joy around you and be happy. Smell the roses and enjoy the beauty of this beautiful Earth.      So Be It!

Astrology Report for October

Guest article by Dorene Carrel AstroConnections.
          October contains several planetary trigger points that could accelerate major changes on both personal and world levels. The New Moon in Libra aligns with the ongoing Uranus/Pluto square to set the stage, followed by a Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Aries on October 18 and a Solar Eclipse in Scorpio on November 3. Mercury in Scorpio turns retrograde on October 21, allowing us to look at all these changes from a deeper perspective.
          The New Moon occurs on October 4 at 12 Libra.  It aligns with Pluto, Uranus and Jupiter, making a cardinal grand cross pattern. This type of pattern tends to produce fast-paced events that can lead to possible crises and stress.  However, at the same time, there is a water grand trine in the background between Saturn in Scorpio, Chiron in Pisces and Jupiter in Cancer that allows us to slow down and become more tranquil and creative, which opens us to new ideas and possibilities. We can always choose where to put our attention.   
          The Libra focus is on relationships and the integration of opposites, along with the quest for greater equality, balance and harmony; the shadow side is being indecisive and seeking peace at any price. The Uranus/Pluto aspect can lead to rebellion against limiting situations as we strive for greater balance.  Jupiter in Cancer is found in both patterns, which suggests taking care of our own emotional/spiritual needs before we can have harmonious relationships.  The Sabian symbol for this degree, “Miners are surfacing from a deep coal mine; the need to carry on at ever deeper levels the quest for knowledge which keeps burning the fires of the collective mind of a society” suggests tapping into deeper levels of awareness from ancient traditions.
          From October 5-8, Mercury in Scorpio aligns with Saturn and the North Node, encouraging us to communicate in a deeper, more authentic way. This is a good period to focus on serious, long-term issues. The North Node can bring new opportunities our way for relationships with deeper healing connections. Due to Mercury retrograde, the Mercury/Saturn aspect will repeat on October 29. On October 9, Jupiter makes a favorable sextile to Ceres in Virgo, which enhances healing through diet and nutrition. Ceres in Virgo (until early November) is currently bringing up issues connected with food safety, such as the labeling of genetically modified food.      
          The Full Moon Lunar Eclipse occurs on October 18 at 26 Aries.  Eclipses contain the potential to awaken new growth and awareness.  A lunar eclipse tends to bring up hidden elements that need to be further examined. Aries themes include being independent, assertive and courageous; the shadow side can be very egocentric and rash.  This time there is a cardinal t-square created by the Sun, Moon and Jupiter.  Aries is the most cardinal of the cardinal signs. Once again Jupiter calls forth our ability to take a broader perspective and aim higher with our goals. The Sabian symbol degrees, “A man possessed of more gifts than he can hold,” and “An eagle and a large white dove change into each other,” suggest expanded feelings of abundance and unity that can now be experienced.  Mars opposing Neptune the next day encourages us to act on our higher ideals. 
          On October 21 Mercury goes stationary retrograde at 18 Scorpio. It will turn direct on November 10 at 2 Scorpio.  This cycle favors research, review and introspection more than starting important activities. This is a good time to discern hidden motives and underlying messages, as well as reconnect with people from the past. It is best to allow extra time for getting things done due to breakdowns, misunderstandings, traffic congestion and computer problems. 
          The Sun in harmonious trine to Neptune on October 25 is favorable for creative visualization or a spiritual retreat. On October 29 Mercury aligns with Saturn again, while Mars trines Pluto on October 31. Both aspects bring more focus and energy and help us stay on track with personal goals. 
          November brings a New Moon Solar Eclipse in Scorpio.  Blessings for a joyful and prosperous autumn!
