Welcome to November. I’m not even sure I want to talk about this month. Things are heavy. Election Tuesday sees transiting Uranus exactly opposite transiting Saturn. Left vs. Right

May we keep cooler heads and see it as Left and Right. Then, El Pluto makes its final ingress into Capricorn on Thanksgiving Eve. There it will stay for 16 years. You can easily see the 

effects of turbulent Pluto shaking us to our very foundations. They need shaken, but hopefully, not too hard - and that the rebuilding phase will be effective and prompt.


Dealing with Pluto is hard, never easy, but usually easy to understand: “Sweeping changes are needed - real ones, with no BS.” It’s that simple. If we think that we’re going to get away 

with just patching things, such as Wall Street, it won’t work.




May we find lighter moments all throughout November too and may you have a great Turkey Day.

And SINCE things are so intense right now, I’ve decided to write about NOTHING BUT FUN STUFF.

(Of course this is all done in harmless fun.)
