If you live in the UK, then the Full Moon happens Thursday November 13th; that is also true for those on the east coast as well as those in Central Time zone in the U.S. Being in DFW, I view events from a Central Time viewpoint. This same event occurs on Wednesday the 12th for those in Pacific Time and points west.

A full moon with the Sun in Scorpio and Moon in Taurus happens once a year, but varies in precise location (in terms of degrees) from year to year.

This year the event occurs at 21 degrees, so if your Sun, Moon, or Ascendant is there then this is an important event for you. (Example: those with Aug 14th birthdays would be affected.)  Unsure if you have a 21 degree planet?  Try the free chart page at AstroLabe.

For President Obama, this most affects his Mars in Virgo at 22 degrees. I’ll offer that this Full Moon is about getting things done. Obama is a Solar Leo, and things Virgo tend to be things financial for Solar Leos. Bottom line: The President Elect needs to get as many things in place regarding the financial sector as soon as possible. After the Full Moon, “things” will change.

For the rest of us, the answers are found in three additional events: (1) Sun Sextile Saturn on Tuesday; (2) Venus conjuncts Pluto then enters Capricorn; and (3) Jupiter Sextiles Uranus. I suppose I could add (4) Sun Squares Neptune.

(1) Sun Sextile Saturn on Tuesday. This day is about getting things done. You’ll feel like working, and you should. Avoid the frivilous like the plague. Not the best day for you if your work involves anything “goofy.” Clowns should stay home. Artists and Writers should use this day to catch up on finances and paperwork; all of us should.

(2) Venus Conjuncts Pluto then enters Cap. Pluto, which is ordinarily malefic without any additional influence, continues to be atop of malefic part of Sagittarius. In a sense, this extra-malefic Pluto “poisons” dear Venus. This aspect perfects about 1am Eastern, midnight Central, 5am UK.

The earlier part of the day was a good thing to get things done, but this evening is a good time to hide unless you are a criminal or a cheat. Criminals and cheats will fare quite well this evening. If you are NOT a criminal, cheat, scammer, or liar, then secure your possessions and do NOT engage in any form of business this evening. Any “offers” that come your way this evening are almost certainly scams. Straight to the trash for them.

When is it safe to act again? I’d say Saturday afternoon through “about” 10pm Central on Sunday. This weekend will be a source of some AMAZING financial deals done on the golf course, family dinner, and other close & personal private gatherings.

(3) Jupiter Sextiles Uranus. This is a BIG and long term aspect that has been in the process of perfecting for a month or three depending on your point of view. It will exert similar influence for another month or three. More than a few Taureans, Virgos, and (ESPECIALLY) Capricorns are benefiting from this; water signs also to a lesser degree.

If you bought Big Oil (Scorpio) then you placed yourself in a position to make quite a bit of money. Prices were artifically high; now, they are almost certainly artificially low.

This is a major “lotto winner” aspect, but for many the Lotto won’t be a ticket bought at a convenience store. This may be the time to get into a educational program that you thought you couldn’t enter. Or, it may be a time to enter certain kinds of business (obviously the kind that benefits from a recession). If you don’t get the job done Monday or Tuesday (or maybe Wednesday), then shoot for the Saturday / Sunday period described above.

(4) Sun Squares Neptune. All good things come to an end. Sun Squares Neptune is death to many activities and events. Neptune is associated with illness, and I’ve seen myself get a bug around this kind of aspect. This happens Thursday morning after the Full Moon (afternoon for UK), and it brings to an end everything described in 1, 2, & 3, above. Of course, #3 is very long term, so other opportunities will open. But for THIS Full Moon, the Sun Square Neptune aspect kills the ability to get things done for most of us.

Exceptions exist, of course. Some scientific researchers, if their research isn’t contaminated or spoiled under this aspect, may make breakthroughs. Actually, the BIGGEST breakthroughs maybe if the research *IS* contaminated. After all, that is how Fleming discovered Penicillin. (Penicillin mold contaminated his petri dish and killed his bacterial cultures.) Ditto for the Stickie Note. So, pay attention. That Thursday disaster may have a brilliant solution to a larger problem hidden within it.

One footnote: look for the events of this Full Moon to resurface circa July 21st of 2010.

Post Election Hangover of November 2008

Describing the energy of November 5, 6, & 7 has been difficult. Then, this video from The Onion was released. This says it far better than I can. (But, November 8th and points forward “things” start changing again.)

Presidential Election Analysis November 2008 (Part 2)

I was wrong.  I said that, with Moon v/c, we wouldn’t get a “clean” result.  But, we did.  McCain conceded.

I stick by the rest of it, though.  Much weirdness is yet to follow.  Wednesday, November 5th will be a “feel good day.”  (Assuming such a thing exists in Scorpio.)

November 6th and 7th prepare us for the Quarter Day of November 8th.  (Discussed earlier in this blog.)  November 8th will be a turning point for many.  Open your eyes, and you’ll see it for yourself.

By Monday the “party” will be over, and the “Party” will be getting started.  If you asked for change, then prepare to expect the unexpected.

Others have written excellent analysis of what is coming to pass.  Can I add any more to the astrologers and non-astrologers alike.  I doubt it.  So, let me pause for a moment before I bang my head against the wall stating the obvious.

As I write this, the American election for the Presidency of the United States is happening.  Obama has a strong lead against McCain.  Without taking sides, I will state that Obama will almost certainly “win.”  My estimate is he wins by 7 to 9 points.

But, it won’t be clean, and it won’t play out at all as others anticipate.  The “long term” will be radically different from the delusions held by some, perhaps many, of us.

That’s one of the big messages today.  As in 2000, the moon is v/c for almost the entire election.  That means we don’t get a “real” answer to our question despite the fact that a once every fourteen years opposition between Saturn and Uranus perfects.  Venus almost perfectly square both (having perfected those aspects yesterday, Monday, November 3rd), and the combination form a huge, and important T-Square.  We’ll discuss that in more detail in other posts.

The message of the day is simple: we are at a turning point.  Okay, EVERYone else has said that.  But, what kind of turning point?  Easy: Saturn is old values and structures and Prometheus, er, Uranus, is the light-bringer of new ideas that sometimes tear down old structures.  Venus (values) is caught in the middle.  Might be astrology, might be “fate,” but the stars are saying “free will” here.

Just in case we are unclear, that’s another side to the void.  We ARE free to choose; the stars will not speak except to say that debt and work (both Virgo and Pluto are about both issues) will (continue) to be key issues.

This election is about one thing only: the conflict between what okd, longly held, dreams we are truly willing to work and save for, and what worthless delusions we are willing to pursue with ever increasing debt.

Nothing is certain except Death and Taxes.  Expect more of the latter.

Sunday, November 2, 2008 A Fuzzy Day

The Party’s Over

Daily Savings Time ends for many. Neptune has or is stationing direct, and Neptune is all about fuzziness. On the bad side, it is the kind of fuzziness that gets drunk drivers into very bad accidents. Please do be careful tonight if you are continuing to party.

If you use Stumbleupon, you’ll just notice even less sleep than usual. Time to take a nap for you!

Photoshop and the Vaseline Lens

On the good side, “Neptune Direct” is the photographer’s filters that “help” older models and actresses to show fewer lines.

Uranus (electronics, computers, software) cotinues to reside in Pisces, so it influences things Neptune. (12th House = Pisces = Neptune; they are all different faces of the same thing). So, today, it isn’t Vaseline on the lens anymore; it is “Photoshop.” (The Vaseline was much cheaper and easier to use, wasn’t it?)

I suppose it would be extraordinarily inappropriate of me to mention any political candidates here. So, I won’t mention McCain, Palin, Obama, Biden, or the Clintons as possible consumers of the old vaseline lens trick. (Can you Photoshop video?)

You know the old saying “seeing is believing”? No longer true with Neptune and the child of Uranus in Pisces (Photoshop):
