October 16, 2008 - November 16, 2008

Your Astro-Forecast begins on the next page. If the time period for an interpretation is, for example, given as "July 1, 2000 (June 15, 2000 to July 15, 2000)", then it starts in mid-June, reaches greatest intensity around July 1, and ends in mid-July. The first date listed is the time when the influence has reached maximum strength; we can call this date the "peak date". The influence starts on the beginning date, gradually increases in strength until the peak date is reached, and then it gradually fades out until the ending date is reached. An influence may last for as little as a few days to as long as half a year or so.

You may also notice that the same interpretation shows up periodically during the year; this is not unusual. In some cases the beginning and ending dates of the 2 influences are the same; the only difference between the 2 interpretations is the peak date. This means that this particular influence has two peak dates instead of one. It is even possible for there to be three or more peak dates for the same astrological influence. To eliminate redundant interpretations, you may be informed that the astrological influence also occurred earlier and that you should refer back to the previous occurrence of this interpretation.

You may be wondering what the abbreviations after the dates are. For example, you may see "Sat Conj Plu", "Ura Trine Nep", etc. These abbreviations are given for the benefit of astrologers and they show the astrological factor that is in effect.

We hope you enjoy your Astro-Forecast. For the benefit of astrologers, some technical details are given below.

Sep 24, 2008             (Sep 15, 2008 to Dec 1, 2009)               Sat 2nd H.

     Getting realistic about financial matters and material security and building a solid financial base are a focus for you now. You are inclined to play it safe and to conserve rather than spend or invest in speculative ventures, and this is a good route for you to take at this time. This can be a period of asceticism or strict budgeting also, especially if you've been wasteful and careless with resources in the past.

Oct 5, 2008              (Oct 4, 2008 to Nov 7, 2008)               Sun 3rd H.

     This is likely to be a busy, active time in which telephone calls, errands, commercial transactions, and the business of everyday living takes much of your time. You are also somewhat restless and not inclined to long quiet periods of concentrated or solitary work. You tend to fritter away your time on inconsequential social activities, but this may not be all bad. Taking time to chat with neighbors and associates may result in more positive and smoother-running relationships.

Oct 6, 2008              (Oct 5, 2008 to Nov 3, 2008)               Ven 4th H.

     At this time you will want to make your home more pleasing, comfortable, and beautiful, perhaps by doing some artistic decorating or landscaping or buying something which will give you and your family much pleasure. You feel very kindly and affectionate toward family members, and you may do some entertaining or invite friends in to enjoy your hospitality, as well.

Oct 7, 2008              (Oct 6, 2008 to Oct 23, 2008)               Merc 2nd H.

     At this time you have many thoughts and discussions about finances, commercial transactions, your personal assets, and material security. You are thinking about how you spend money and manage your resources. This is a very good time to consult with a financial planner or accountant and to get your business affairs in order.

Oct 12, 2008    11:35 PM (Oct 12, 2008 to Oct 13, 2008)               Merc Qucnx Moon

     Your sense of perspective and proportion is a bit skewed at the moment. Small problems loom large and details and other minor matters consume a lot of attention and focus. You are apt to be mentally restless, scattered, unable to concentrate on the immediate task at hand, absorbed in something related to the past. A somewhat disconcerting, but only too familiar, interaction with a parent, child, or other family  member is likely. Be aware that you may be too stuck in your own point of view or self protectiveness to really hear what they are trying to convey.

Oct 15, 2008             (Sep 29, 2008 to Oct 29, 2008)               Ura Qucnx Asc

     The manner in which you present yourself and relate to others at this time may upset the status quo. You are remarkably more independent, rebellious, iconoclastic, or selfish. Impatient with endless compromising or accommodating others, you are apt to just do whatever you feel like doing! On the other hand, those in your immediate environment may be changing just as rapidly and forcing you to cope with some surprises or unexpected twists and turns. A general sense of excitement coupled with insecurity and uncertainty colors this entire time.

     You suddenly may decide to relocate. Carefully check out this impulse because your discontent may not be eased by a change in locale. Relationships are prone to unreliability and breakups at this time, especially if you feel they are unduly restrictive.

    Note that the precise timing of this astrological influence is very dependent on the exact birth time, so the dates given are accurate only if your birth time is very accurate.

Oct 16, 2008     3:12 PM (Oct 15, 2008 to Oct 18, 2008)               Mars Trine Moon

    Your feelings run hot now, and you are more likely to act on instinct, emotion, and impulse rather than reason. Your responses to life are passionate and also more natural, childlike, and direct. High-spirited physical play, lovemaking, or any activity that really involves you emotionally, such as a rock concert or a rousing football game, will be very gratifying to you now.

Oct 17, 2008             (Oct 17, 2008 to Oct 18, 2008)               Nep Oppos Asc

    Be very careful and circumspect about any new relationship that forms now. You are likely to form new relationships of both a personal and business nature that you have high hopes for, but you are likely to eventually become disappointed by these relationships. You tend to project your ideals and fantasies on others now, and not really see them objectively and clearly. Others can easily deceive you. You are likely to meet people whose sincerity and honesty you have serious doubts about, but you are inclined to give them the benefit of the doubt. Avoid commitments and dependency on these people as they probably will have the bad traits that you were concerned that they have!

    You are inclined to be very self-sacrificing and giving now. Situations may arise where you find that you are able to contribute to people who are very needy, and you feel the urge to give selflessly without concern for reimbursement. This experience can help you "store up gold in heaven" and be very positive, but do be careful that the people you help really benefit from your service and do not squander your contributions.

    You meet people at this time who are very imaginative and idealistic. Artists, visionaries, quacks, and "nuts" of all sorts seem to pop up wherever you go. Some of these people inspire and uplift you, while others are deceptive, untrustworthy, and unreliable. You must have the mental clarity to distinguish the good apples from the bad ones.

    Note that the precise timing of this astrological influence is very dependent on the exact birth time, so the dates given are accurate only if your birth time is very accurate.

Oct 17, 2008             (June 5, 2008 to Dec 3, 2008)               Plu Sqr Ura

     Unexpected upsets and changes occur now. You may suddenly move, change jobs, or make other major changes. However, be careful about being too impulsive. You may make a change only because you are restless and tired of the same old situation, rather than because you have a better opportunity. The changes that occur now are likely to be partly initiated by yourself, and partly an unexpected surprise. In either case, this is a time of change!

     This is an explosive and unstable time period. Be careful while driving your car or during any other activity that requires attentiveness, as your sudden bursts of impatience and impulsiveness make you more accident-prone than usual.

     This is also a time for liberating some of your potential creative capabilities that have been lying dormant. This is a period in your life when you should be breaking free from old habits, and becoming much more spontaneous and lively. You can discover new creative abilities and learn to improvise more. This is an excellent time to explore new creative outlets, particularly ones that require greater spontaneity or improvisation. A youthful spirit of freedom and spontaneity is trying to come forth now. However, be wary of a tendency to pursue some area just to be different. Like a youngster who tries smoking cigarettes just to be different and to rebel against "the establishment", you may pursue alternatives simply because they are expressions of being different and rebellious rather than because of their intrinsic worth.

Oct 17, 2008             (Oct 6, 2008 to Nov 2, 2008)               Sat Trine MC

     Solid and steady progress in achieving career goals is highlighted now. If you are not happy with the kind of work you do, then investigate the possibilities of a change in your assigned duties at this time. If you are happy with the kind of work you do and you perform your job well, it is very likely that you will receive a promotion now.

     Do not seek out opportunities that require skills that you do not possess because this astrological influence does not bring completely unexpected benefits. The progress you make now is based on the skills and talents that you have developed.

     You are very clear about what your career goals are at this time. You are able to make wise, practical decisions that bring you up a step in your pursuits. It is unlikely that you will make radical changes in your career at this time; you will build upon whatever progress you have made in the past and take an important step forward.

     People of stature and importance assist you now in achieving your career goals. You may receive recognition or a promotion that cements your job position and offers increased stability and job security.

     If improvements in your career do not seem to be very significant but you feel strongly that there are changes you can make that will significantly improve the situation, then act on these thoughts and feelings. Don't sit back and wait if you can see what needs to be done. This astrological influence is helpful but not particularly motivating, and you may fail to take advantage of the opportunities due to inertia.

     Note that the precise timing of this astrological influence is very dependent on the exact birth time, so the dates given are accurate only if your birth time is very accurate.

Oct 17, 2008     8:11 PM (Oct 17, 2008 to Oct 18, 2008)               Ven Sxtil Ura

    This is a time for getting a little loose and wild with friends, going dancing, or doing something out of the ordinary that is stimulating and fun. You meet interesting new people and are more open to people who are quite different from yourself. An opportunity for a romance may arise which is likely to be exciting, though short-lived.

Oct 19, 2008     4:10 AM (Oct 10, 2008 to Oct 21, 2008)               Merc Qucnx Moon

This astrological influence (Merc Qucnx Moon) also occurred on Oct 12, 2008 (peak date). Please refer to this date.

Oct 20, 2008             (Oct 20, 2008 to Oct 21, 2008)               Ura Sxtil MC

    Your job and career advance very nicely now. This is a positive time when you feel excited about the developments in your career. You are able to pour more of your creativity and your originality into what you do. If you have been feeling stifled by tedious and uninteresting tasks, now is the time when you can break free from these restrictions. Others will be more receptive to your suggestions. Also, seek out opportunities for a transfer, promotion, or even job change as this is a time when you can discover ways to revitalize your career and daily work. If your current job is creative and interesting, you will find that you are even more creative and inventive now, and new insights and contacts open doors for you.

    You are also less self-conscious now and more willing to take risks. You don't care as much what others think of you, and you don't mind it if they think you are a bit strange. Consequently, you explore new areas and take risks that you normally would not take. This is an excellent time to do something that you have never done before, perhaps visit a place you haven't seen, learn about a subject you have little knowledge of, make something, or play a sport you have never been involved with before.

    In short, this is a positive time of creativity and greater spontaneity in both your personal and professional life.

    Note that the precise timing of this astrological influence is very dependent on the exact birth time, so the dates given are accurate only if your birth time is very accurate.

Oct 22, 2008     1:17 AM (Oct 21, 2008 to Oct 23, 2008)               Ven Conj Merc

    You use charm, humor, and a light touch to get your point across now, and your friendly attitude makes a favorable impression on others. Your artistic and aesthetic sense is heightened now also, and interest in literature, poetry, and culture is strong. Serious and demanding mental work should probably be put off for another time, as either your mind is more on matters of the heart or you simply want to relax and think of lighter topics.

Oct 22, 2008             (July 30, 2008 to Jan 26, 2009)               Nep Sqr MC

    Changing attitudes and doubts about your career and overall situation in life can eat away at you now. This problem is particularly strong if you have not been honest with yourself, kidding yourself about where your current life is leading you, or ignoring your dreams and ideals because you feel they are unrealistic. Your loftiest dreams and aspirations surface and assert themselves now, and you are likely to find yourself daydreaming about winning a lottery or sweepstakes so that you can freely pursue your dreams, or being "discovered" so that you have a wider audience for your talents.

    Because your actual circumstances are likely to be very different from your ideals, you can become increasingly dissatisfied with your life, begin complaining and ignoring all of the solid progress that you have made, and become less appreciative of the wealth of good things that you have to be grateful for. Try not to let the disparity between your dreams and your actual circumstances cause you to become depressed, but rather seek creative alternative methods to practically make your dreams come true. Even a modest improvement is better than no improvement at all.

    Be very careful in all practical affairs as you are apt to incorrectly assess a situation or be deceived by others. Try not to let your fantasies and ideals cloud your vision; you tend to project your ideals on every situation, whether or not the situation is directly relevant to your personal dreams and aspirations.

    Note that the precise timing of this astrological influence is very dependent on the exact birth time, so the dates given are accurate only if your birth time is very accurate.

Oct 22, 2008     7:17 PM (Oct 21, 2008 to Oct 23, 2008)               Ven Sxtil Mars

    Romance and flirtations are likely now. You are feeling warm, expressive, and lively. Loving feelings flow between you and the people you meet, especially those of the opposite sex. Friendships are also strengthened at this time. Also, your creativity and desire to make something beautiful is stimulated now.

Oct 23, 2008     7:46 AM (Oct 23, 2008 to Oct 24, 2008)               Ven Sqr Jup

    This is a time when it is difficult to stay within a budget or on a diet, as your tendency is to splurge on beautiful things and to enjoy yourself as much as possible. You want comfort and ease and have luxurious tastes. Quality is especially important to you right now. Also, you want to share whatever good fortune you have. You need company and happy fellowship. It's a good time for a party, as long as you don't overdo it.

Oct 23, 2008    10:23 AM (Oct 23, 2008 to Oct 24, 2008)               Ven Trine Sat

    This is an excellent time to make decisions about your financial affairs, as your judgment is sound and reliable, though a bit conservative. Investing in beautiful things which are likely to increase in value over time (such as jewelry or fine art) is favored. You are not interested in fleeting excitement or frivolity now. Spending "quality time" with an old and trusted friend or enjoying the company of an experienced, mature person who has much of substance to give you will make you happy.

Oct 23, 2008             (Oct 22, 2008 to Nov 14, 2008)               Merc 3rd H.

     Your intellectual curiosity and mental restlessness is high now and you may flit from one activity to another or spend a lot of time chatting and socializing. Plan frequent outings and short excursions to satisfy your need to move about and to communicate.

     This is a good time to take a field trip or to travel for business purposes.

Oct 23, 2008    11:06 PM (Oct 22, 2008 to Oct 25, 2008)               Sun Conj Ven

    Love, relationships, beauty, and pleasure are emphasized now. You feel especially attractive or friendly, and the warmth you radiate is noticed and appreciated. A new romance or friendship may ensue. Artistic efforts are also fruitful.

Oct 24, 2008             (May 20, 2008 to Dec 14, 2008)               Plu Trine Asc

     This is a positive time when you express your deepest feelings openly and intensely. You seek intensity in your life and in your relationships, and you become more aware of hidden sides of your personality, untapped talents and interests, and also emotional blocks or confusions. Underlying motives come to the surface and relationships become deeper and more meaningful. Although this process is natural and occurs with no effort on your part, you can do much to enhance this process by courageously taking advantage of opportunities to better understand yourself and others.

     Note that the precise timing of this astrological influence is very dependent on the exact birth time, so the dates given are accurate only if your birth time is very accurate.

Oct 26, 2008    12:03 AM (Oct 25, 2008 to Oct 27, 2008)               Merc Sxtil Sun

    This is a busy time; communicating and getting in touch with others is very likely. Numerous phone calls, letters, meetings, errands, or discussions bring you into contact with others. This is a good time to brainstorm with others, share ideas, and come to a group consensus.

Oct 26, 2008    12:50 AM (Oct 25, 2008 to Oct 27, 2008)               Ven Sqr Moon

    The craving for sweetness and comfort in the form of loving affection or food is strong now. This is a good time to baby yourself and also to spend time with the people who love and appreciate you the most. Also, you are feeling rather tender and softhearted and may do something "maternal" on impulse (such as take home a stray kitten, offer to babysit, buy a gift for your family, etc.).

Oct 26, 2008             (Oct 25, 2008 to Dec 12, 2008)               Mars 4th H.

     Much productive activity in your home is likely. Do-it-yourself home improvements, working hard to get your home the way you'd like it, or tackling some ambitious projects in the house or yard may be on the agenda.

     You or others in your family may also be more defensive and quick to blow up over petty annoyances. Friction with parents and other close relatives or old rivalries with your family can be a source of considerable stress at this time.

Oct 27, 2008    10:59 PM (Oct 27, 2008 to Oct 28, 2008)               Sun Sqr Mars

    You know just what you want right now and woe to anyone or anything that gets in your way! You are much more likely to become domineering, pushy, or inconsiderate of others now, so it is a good time for you to do what you need to do by yourself rather than with others. Accidents, mistakes made in haste, or ego conflicts may occur due to your impatience and willfulness. Positively, physical energy is high and you could accomplish a great deal.

Oct 28, 2008     1:52 PM (Oct 27, 2008 to Oct 30, 2008)               Sun Sxtil Jup

    Agreements, contracts, and joining your efforts with others will work out very much to your advantage now. A friend or person in authority may offer help or present an opportunity which will benefit you now or in the future. Also, you will reap rewards later for the generosity and aid you extend to others at this time.

Oct 28, 2008     5:02 PM (Oct 27, 2008 to Oct 30, 2008)               Sun Qucnx Sat

    A disappointment or sobering realization forces you to re-evaluate your course, make adjustments, and draw upon more of your resources than you had planned to. Overwork, a feeling of pressure and unease, and the weight of responsibilities may precipitate a minor health crisis. Avoid exhausting your energies at this time; lie low and do only what is truly necessary.

Oct 29, 2008             (June 1, 2008 to Dec 6, 2008)               Plu Qucnx MC

     A profound shift in your career aspirations, long range personal goals, or role in society is indicated for this time period. A significant loss or death of a teacher or parental figure, or the loss of employment or some guiding principle in your life, or of something or someone you looked up to, could occur to precipitate a crisis. Any abuse of power by yourself or someone you are closely aligned with could be exposed.

     Positively, many aspects of your life will undergo a rebirth or resurrection after a time of change and instability. Hidden gifts can emerge at this time.

     Note that the precise timing of this astrological influence is very dependent on the exact birth time, so the dates given are accurate only if your birth time is very accurate.

Oct 31, 2008    11:46 AM (Oct 31, 2008 to Nov 1, 2008)               Ven Conj Sun

    Your personal magnetism is strong and you attract appreciation, affection, and attention at this time. Feelings of love, a desire for beauty, and the urge to be creative are strong. You beautify your surroundings and pay particular attention to your appearance. This is a good time to treat yourself or do something fun just for you.

Nov 1, 2008      1:33 AM (Oct 31, 2008 to Nov 2, 2008)               Sun Trine Moon

    At this time you enjoy emotional satisfaction and harmony in your home life. Relationships with women run smoothly. If you have a solid emotional base in your life, you will receive the benefits of that. If not, this is a good time to begin making connections with people and also to discover what gives real emotional nourishment and fulfillment.

Nov 3, 2008              (Nov 2, 2008 to Nov 30, 2008)               Ven 5th H.

     You are feeling inspired creatively and romantically and you express your loving feelings quite openly now. Creative self-expression of any kind is favored at this time. You will also thoroughly enjoy artistic, musical, or cultural events and activities, especially in the company of a loved one.

Nov 5, 2008      6:06 AM (Nov 4, 2008 to Nov 6, 2008)               Merc Conj Ven

    Thoughts of love and an appreciation of the beauty in your life comes to the fore. This is a favorable time to communicate your feelings to the ones you care about: write a love poem or send a love letter! Also your aesthetic sense is strong now; you may want to make changes in your environment to make it more harmonious and pleasurable for you.

Nov 6, 2008      4:03 AM (Nov 6, 2008 to Nov 7, 2008)               Mars Sxtil Plu

    You may be considering a major overhaul or revision in your ambitions at this time. If you do not have a sense of meaningful purpose or a passionate commitment to anything, you will want to reassess where you are going and why. If you do have a clear goal, you can make significant progress and work with great satisfaction now. An opportunity to do what you really want to do is likely.

Nov 6, 2008      2:51 PM (Nov 6, 2008 to Nov 7, 2008)               Ven Sqr Plu

    Hidden passions, fears, jealousies, longings, desires, or needs surface in you now and can stir up trouble in your closest relationships. You are prone to be compulsive or demanding in a close relationship, to be emotionally driven and to force things to a head in some emotionally-laden situation. Positively, a relationship can be deepened and reborn now, given new life by your willingness to reveal yourself completely to your loved one.

Nov 7, 2008              (Nov 6, 2008 to Dec 11, 2008)               Sun 4th H.

     Your domestic affairs, family relationships, and most intimate personal life are the focus of your attention now. This is a time to do what you can to build trust in your family life and a strong foundation within yourself, so that regardless of what you meet in the outside world, you have a secure place to return to. If you are of a contemplative nature, now is an ideal time to meditate and reflect. Your home is very important to you now also, and this is a good time to give it extra attention.

Nov 7, 2008      4:50 PM (Nov 7, 2008 to Nov 8, 2008)               Merc Sqr Mars

    Errors made in haste, speaking too forcefully, sharp words spoken on impulse, or accidents occurring due to restlessness and impatience are all possible at this time.

    You feel that you have to fight for what you want or believe in, and you are very clear, decisive, and convincing right now, but you also tend to stir up more controversy or competitive feelings than is really necessary.

Nov 8, 2008      1:40 AM (Nov 8, 2008 to Nov 9, 2008)               Merc Sxtil Jup

    You are optimistic, hopeful, and forward-looking at this time. You can see connections and possibilities you may have overlooked before. Now is a time for communicating your enthusiasm, sharing your plans and dreams, and also being more receptive to others' thoughts and points of view. Contracts, negotiations, and business dealings of all kinds are favored now.

Nov 8, 2008      3:35 AM (Nov 8, 2008 to Nov 9, 2008)               Merc Qucnx Sat

     Your thoughts tend to be gloomy. There may be work ahead of you because of past errors of judgment. Or you may be sobering up after a "honeymoon" period with something or someone. You also hear a bit of information that troubles you. Try to do what you can without worrying excessively or burdening yourself with the entire load of responsibility. Even if a problem cannot be solved or eradicated, it can be managed in an intelligent way.

Nov 9, 2008      3:02 AM (Nov 7, 2008 to Nov 10, 2008)               Mars Conj Nep

    You have strange desires, impulses, and feelings which are difficult to describe or understand. Your usual daily pursuits seem drab, meaningless, or curiously unsatisfying, so that it may be difficult to motivate yourself and focus on your work. On the other hand, you can get very fired up about something out of the ordinary, an ideal or dream, or fantasy that you usually consider too impractical to actually do anything about. Your imagination is very active. Artistic, creative work which expresses a visionary, whimsical, or fantastic quality is very fulfilling to you at this time.

Nov 10, 2008     9:50 AM (Nov 10, 2008 to Nov 11, 2008)               Merc Trine Moon

    It is easy for you to talk about your feelings now and also to listen sensitively to not only what others are saying but also what they are feeling. This is an excellent time to discuss your feelings and clear the air of any grievances you may be holding on to from the past. Your communication with women is especially good at this time.

Nov 11, 2008     4:51 PM (Nov 10, 2008 to Nov 12, 2008)               Ven Sqr Ura

    You are impulsively affectionate and flirtatious at this time, and you feel quite restless if you are in a stable, predictable relationship that offers little excitement. You may be highly attracted to someone new, simply because of the novelty and possibilities for adventure. Also, your friends or love partner may behave in unexpected ways. Flexibility and open-mindedness in your relationships is called for now.

Nov 12, 2008     5:28 AM (Nov 12, 2008 to Nov 13, 2008)               Merc Qucnx MC

     This is a time to take in information which can be of real practical assistance to you in reaching a significant long-range goal. Some news may reach you which will create some minor distress and compel you to re-examine or reassess a position you have taken regarding your career or work in the world. Don't try to force issues or come to any definite conclusions now and don't sign any contracts which require too much compromise on your part. Simply gather information and, if necessary, delay direct negotiations.

    Opportunities for friendship, pleasant associations, and enjoyable social interactions occur now. Personal relationships are harmonious and rewarding. Also, financial transactions go smoothly for you and material benefits are possible at this time.

     Upsets and unexpected changes in relationships are extremely likely at this time.

    In any close relationship, both people make many sacrifices for the benefit of the other person. If you have been making sacrifices begrudgingly and you feel that the demands of the relationship are unreasonable, then you will find it extremely difficult to cope with these obligations now. A free-spirited, independent streak arises in you, making you more selfish, independent, and unwilling to tolerate being stifled by another. You also rebel against others who are domineering or rigid in their way of dealing with other people.

    Also, the reverse condition is equally strong. If you have been stifling another person or if you simply have taken the good will and assistance of another person for granted, you will find the other person rebelling against this state of affairs. The neglect or abuse that you heap on other people is no longer accepted and suddenly the relationship cannot go on in the same manner.

    The need for freedom in relationships is very strong at this time. If either person becomes too self-centered and selfish, the relationship can weaken even if the other person tries to be understanding, tolerant, and reasonable.

    This is a good time for you. Your ability to express yourself confidently and openly wins you the respect and admiration of others. You can promote ideas and plans that you believe strongly in and, surprisingly, others do not resist you now. They quietly accept your proposals and ideas, and even provide some support. This is an excellent time to influence a government agency or organization, to start a business, or make a career change. Legal matters of any kind work out fortunately now.

Nov 14, 2008             (Nov 13, 2008 to Dec 5, 2008)               Merc 4th H.

     You are likely to be in a rather nostalgic frame of mind, remembering earlier days and thinking and speaking about past events. This is a good time for communicating with family members, perhaps re-establishing your connection or resolving a long standing problem between you. Speaking about very personal, private matters comes easier to you now. You may also find it worthwhile to record some of your musings, memories, and thoughts in a journal or diary.

Nov 14, 2008             (Nov 7, 2008 to Dec 6, 2008)               Sat Conj Asc

     During this time period you are serious-minded, introspective, and sincerely concerned with your responsibilities and commitments. You make some important decisions that affect the course of your life. This is a critically important time when you mature rapidly. You may feel that some of your habits are holdovers from your adolescence and you are now ready to drop them. This change in your attitude and perspective on life causes you to cut out many old habits and interests. You are now taking life more seriously and you act more responsibly.

     You are not very sociable or jovial at this time. Others perceive you as aloof and indifferent to them. They sense the change in your attitude towards life, and a feeling of distance develops between you and others. You may become very lonely and feel that few people understand you. This feeling arises because your attitudes are changing. In reality, you are not as different as you think you are; it's just that your attitudes and interests are changing and becoming different from those of many of your old friends and acquaintances.

     Any number of major changes can occur at this time. Relocating is perhaps the most common one. The dissolution of old friendships and the formation of new ones also occurs. A change in employment or the start of a new interest may develop.

     You may decide to seriously pursue an area that you have always had an interest in, but never seriously pursued. Such a decision usually works out exceptionally well in the long run as long as you can continue your dedication to this pursuit during the long phase of training required to develop expertise. At this point in your life you want to do the things that are really meaningful to you, and that is why you are likely to tune into your deepest talents and natural proclivities rather than pursuits based more on social and parental pressures or financial gain. If you have been neglecting your inherent talents and gifts, you will now develop a "better late than never" attitude and begin to tap these resources. Now you can see the importance of doing things that are most meaningful, even when tangible rewards are not immediately forthcoming. Hopefully, this realization will not fade when this astrological influence ends.

     Note that the precise timing of this astrological influence is very dependent on the exact birth time, so the dates given are accurate only if your birth time is very accurate.

Nov 14, 2008     6:35 PM (Nov 13, 2008 to Nov 16, 2008)               Mars Sxtil Ura

    Physical thrills and excitement have a strong appeal for you now, and you want to do something new and out of the ordinary. You also have a lot of energy and quick reflexes. A vigorous game of racquetball or tennis or some other fast-moving competitive sport would be a good outlet for you now. Acting on your spontaneous impulses and following through on some of your more unusual or "crazy" desires will yield surprises, mostly positive.

Nov 14, 2008     6:44 PM (Nov 14, 2008 to Nov 15, 2008)               Sun Sxtil Plu

    There are opportunities for deep sharing and powerful, meaningful contacts with others, especially people who share common goals or ideals. An opportunity for a leadership role is also likely.
