Greetings from the Sierra Mountains in northern California. It’s very beautiful here.
November is always intense because of the dark days. There are no surprises this month but you do have to focus on your work since there is such an emphasis of planets in Virgo.
November 1 – Moon in Cancer. It’s a watery day, very fertile, when you have to use your intuition to make your choices. The veil between worlds is still thin and you can hear messages from those who are gone and who speak to you in a clairvoyant manner. Daylight savings ends today ushering a time to get comfortable with darkness.
November 2 – Moon VC Cancer, enters Leo 10:48 am. Mercury enters Scorpio and turns your mind to deeper subjects. It’s a good time to study science and psychology. Venus and Mars join up and ask you to tidy up the messy bits in your relationships. Work on blending your inner masculine with your inner feminine. It’s a good day to start a new crafts project.
November 3 – Moon in Leo, VC 8:46 pm. Vote the way your heart tells you to. Break out of any moody cloud that has covered you recently and do the things that make you feel happy. See the bright side, the half full glass, and the sun coming out after the rain. You need to keep busy and do tomorrow’s work today and put things in order so all you need to do is follow through on them.
November 4 – Moon VC Leo, enters Virgo 9:22 pm. Do the minimum of work and put your energy towards having some fun. Think of how to create some excitement for the winter months.

November 5 – Moon in Virgo. Clean up any messes you see. The Sun and Pluto work together to help you do deep cleaning on many levels. It’s the day to discard unused items and also to get rid of any attitudes that are holding you back. Get rid of those piles and bags of books, clothes, and bring them to a placed where they can be recycled or sold. It’s a good day for therapy and self-examination.
November 6 – Moon in Virgo. The Moon connects with Chiron and Jupiter making it a prime time for health procedures. Make appointments for those nagging physical problems. You can try your luck if you’ve thought it out. Send in proposals and other examples of your work. Let your imagination flow out in words, music, or any kind of artistic expression.

Be patient and careful when traveling and accept the delays and obstacles that Saturn brings you.
