Saturn sextile Neptune
(16° Capricorn/Pisces)

The stern, austere approach of
Saturn in Capricorn is softened by
this sextile to Neptune, and this is
very helpful.  You’re more intuitive,
more empathetic, more sensitive to
the ebb and flow of emotion around
you.  This helps you work your way
around walls, barriers, divisions, and
entrenched animosities.  

It's a good time to tend to your
spiritual needs.  You can find
structures, such as groups, meetings,
or religious organizations, that give
you what you need at the heart-level,
and then help you connect to the
divine.  You may start a personal
spiritual practice, such as meditation.  

Creative work benefits from this
aspect as well, because you can find
the right structures to contain your
creativity.  If you’re an artist, you
could set up a little studio for
yourself.  If your thing is music, you
could work out ways to record or to
perform.  You have one foot in the
world of forms, one in the world of
ethereal beauty, and you find your
balance and move forward.    

This is noticeable October 13 to

November 21 to 27
Mars oppose Uranus

Mars sextile Jupiter
(25° Libra/Sagittarius)

This is a fortunate transit, and it gives
more confidence, charisma, and
forward motion.  You find ways to
expand your efforts, explore a wider
range of experience, and influence
events.  It gives a wider stage for
everything you do - more exposure,
more influence.  

This transit is energizing and
strengthening, both physically and
mentally.  If you have a big job to do,
whether it’s learning a language or
building a gazebo, this is a good time
to tackle it.  You are more resourceful,
and better able to recognize and
create opportunities. You see
opportunities rather than limits.  

This is a wonderful transit for travel.  
You can see all kinds of amazing
things, and you’re definitely
broadened by the experience.  It’s
also great for doing anything in the
wider community – going to concerts,
art fairs, political gatherings, or
religious retreats.  It’s a very fruitful
time, when it comes to getting together
with others and doing something which
inspires you and benefits everyone.  

It’s also great for athletics, especially
sports involving balance and speed. If
you love a sport, you want to do it a
lot, and you want to excel, and this
transit strengthens those feelings.
There’s a lot of positive energy and
inspiration, and you can tap into it.  

This is noticeable November 8 to 17.

November 22 to 26
Venus conjunct Jupiter

Sun sextile Pluto
(21° Scorpio/Capricorn)

This is a time when everyone
goes a little deeper.  There’s an
interest in all the subjects that
are normally taboo – sex, death,
the underworld.  Myths and
stories can come to life. Medusa
pokes her head out of her cave,
and the sirens sing.   Everyone
feels a desire to dip their toes
into dangerous, otherworldly
waters.

But because it’s a sextile, a
harmonious aspect, it’s generally
safe to live a little bit on the wild
side. And there’s a purpose to
what you’re doing.  It’s about
your most compelling desires,
your strongest goals, your most
cherished dreams.  You’re going
there, one step at a time, and it
takes courage to do things you’
ve never done before.  Now –
that courage is available to you.  

There’s a lot of attractive force
during this transit.  You may find
yourself drawn quite strongly
towards certain people and
situations, without knowing quite
why.  What are you supposed to
learn?  Why are you getting
involved in this?  If you don’t
clutter your mind with a lot of
platitudes, you’ll figure out what
your spirit is trying to tell you.     

This is noticeable November 11
to 15.

Mercury sextile Saturn
(16° Scorpio/Capricorn)

This is a time of serious thought.  
You think more deeply, dwelling on
what is mysterious, scary or
emotionally compelling.  You want
answers, and you want to
understand.  You’re willing to take a
little more time to study situations, to
listen to people, to get to the buried
truths.

It’s also a time when your sense of
responsibility is stronger, and when
you prefer more structure in your
intellectual life.  You are more
rigorous with yourself as well as with
others. You’re willing to call people
on lazy thinking and unchecked
assumptions, but you do this in a
careful, diplomatic way.  You’re
building bridges rather than burning
them, and you want to be sure that
these bridges are solid and long-
lasting, not made with flimsy
materials.   

You have a strong desire to
increase the amount of order in your
life, to work out systems that are
practical and efficient.  You want to
make time for things that are truly
meaningful, and this can mean
getting a lot of deadwood out of the
way first.  So you can get to a lot of
things that
you’ve put off, and cross quite a few
items off your “to do” list.      

This is noticeable November 11 to
15.

Mercury trine Neptune
(15° Scorpio/Pisces)

This is very pleasant, and gives a
feeling of attunement.  You can flow
with whatever is going on, accepting
what is at hand. You notice the
beauty around you, the refreshing
breezes that blow in your window
and the benevolence of sunshine.
And you’re more comfortable with
your own feelings, and with those of
the people around you.

Because you accept people more
fully, this is a good aspect for
relationships.  And because you
accept them, you move in a natural,
fluid way to correct any problems
that come up.  You don’t waste time
blaming yourself or anybody else,
but look for whatever will alleviate
the discomfort.  You enjoy the things
that make your friends and family
members unique and adorable,
including all their little quirks, and
they manage to appreciate yours as
well.    

This transit enhances your
imagination, and so is good for all
creative work.  It’s particularly nice
for poets, as it gives grace and flow
to language.  Even if you’re not
writing poetry, even if you’re just
giving a report to your boss or a
presentation to a client, you are a
little more poetic than usual, and
others respond to that.      

This is noticeable November 12 to
15.

Venus squares Neptune
(15° Sagittarius/Pisces)

This makes for a really vivid fantasy
life, but sometimes the difficulty can
be figuring out where your fantasies
end and reality begins.  It’s very
easy to persuade yourself that you
have everything under control, when
actually there’s a certain amount of
chaos around you.  Or you could
persuade yourself that you know
something, when you don’t really
have a clue.  

This transit enhances creativity,
because it gives a stronger and
more vivid imagination.  But it tends
to dissolve or ignore structure, and
this isn’t necessarily the best thing
for artistic efforts.  You may find that
your work is a bit too diffuse and
disconnected.  Before getting to the
point you want to make, it may
wander around, get trapped in some
dead ends, and generally confuse
your audience.

In relationships, the main danger is
that people can see each other as
fantasy figures, and ignore the real,
live people beneath.  You may have
to gently correct people who aren’t
seeing you accurately, while at the
same time being aware of your own
tendency to over-idealize or
demonize others.    

This is noticeable November 12 to
16.

Mars oppose Uranus
(3° Scorpio/Taurus)

This is one of the most accident-
prone transits there is, so be extra
careful.  It can mean falls, cuts,
burns, shocks, floods, and all sorts
of problems with machines and
technology.  Try not to do anything
in a hurry, even if you feel
pressured, but rather to think
carefully about whatever you’re
doing.  Think ahead, too.  Do you
have everything you need in case of
an emergency?

It can also be a time of conflict with
others.  There could be sudden
surges of anger that catch you
unaware, and escalate quickly into
confrontations.  Some deeper, more
urgent desires could emerge,
surprising everyone, demanding
resolution.  People really want to be
free to express their desires, even
the ones that are not socially
acceptable, even the ones that are
dangerous.  

Still, not everybody is ready to walk
on the wild side, and there could be
some fierce fixed battles between
those who want deep, powerful
changes, and those who are
threatened by this, and want
everything to stay exactly as it is.  
This opposition takes place in fixed
signs, so it could last a while, but
Uranus aspects tend to be
explosive, so there could be a lot of
smaller eruptions that keep turning
everything upside down.      

It’s a very creative, spontaneous
time, and so some exciting things
can happen.  But it can also mean
feeling restless, grouchy, and easily
irritated, especially if you feel stuck
in a rut.  An inner urge to rebel can
push you to do things you wouldn’t
ordinarily do, including getting rid of
anything that limits you.  This could
be a good thing, but do try to stay
grounded.   

This is noticeable November 21 and
27.

Venus conjunct Jupiter
(28° Sagittarius)

This is an expansive, pleasurable time,
great for indulging yourself and
others.  It calls for celebrations,
gatherings, parties, festivals, and
political rallies.  Everything’s a little
bigger than life, a little more
outrageous and dramatic and colorful.  
Passions flare, song breaks out,
spontaneous dancing goes viral.    

If you host an event during this time,
invite all your friends, and don’t worry
about how they’ll fit together.  
Everybody’s chattier, freer and more
generous under this influence.  And it
doesn’t matter how fancy your party
is.  People are willing to rough it, to try
things they never tried before. You
might want to try an adventurous
theme, or some kind of exotic cuisine.  
However, folks could eat and drink
more than they usually do, so be sure
that there is plenty of whatever you
have.   

It’s a great time to be on vacation,
since energy is high, and there are all
kinds of pleasurable possibilities
everywhere you look. It’s a fun time for
games, and, win or lose, everyone is a
good sport.  Games of chance are
particularly popular, since everyone
wants to try their luck. You’ll either be
gambling or gamboling, or possibly
both.  

It’s a good time for artists, with your
work more passionate and exuberant.  
You connect with your audience, and
they return the love.

26.
