Newsletter - November 2013
RUNE OF THE MONTH: Perth "Intimacy".
RUNE OF THE MONTH: Perth "Intimacy". Intimacy implies privacy and something very personal. What we share with another intimately remains within that relationship and is only exchanged with that one person, making him/her all the more special. How much intimacy is there in our lives? Are we an open book to all who cross our paths or do we privilege certain people in certain circumstances? Intimacy is not the same as secrecy. We are not hiding anything or pretending to be who we are not. We are simply applying discrimination and valuing ourselves and those we particularly cherish in a unique way. Intimacy plays an important role in creating warmth and a feeling of safety in our lives.
The month starts with the 4th Uranus Square Pluto aspect since June 2012.
This cycle which will be complete a year and a half from now, on March 2015, brings about the destruction of the old paradigms through the huge clearing of all the negativity, violence, corruption, lies, manipulations that have plagued humanity for over 10,000 years. When reading the newspapers' headlines or listening to the news, we could be under the impression that there is actually more darkness, not less. Even though, in reality, there is less, because it is more visible, it just more difficult to hide. As we progress through the 3 remaining Uranus Square Pluto aspects, it will become obvious that more people have chosen the light and that the old ways of doing things motivated by money, greed and abuse of others, no longer work.
Solar Eclipse (New Moon) on Sunday 11/3 at 4:50 AM at 11º16' Scorpio.
This degree is symbolized in the Sabian Symbols by "An official Embassy ball". This eclipse ends the magnificent cosmic portal which started with the October 18 Lunar Eclipse in Aries, whose function has been to clear fear, aggression and obscurity. A day of celebration of our awareness that we are one with all that is and that the revolution of consciousness does not touch just one country or one people, but all nations and all cultures across the globe.
Mercury turns direct on November 10 at 2º33' Scorpio. Its shadow period remains until November 27, 2013.
The degree it turns direct on is represented in the Sabian Symbols by "A house-raising party in a small village enlists the neighbors' cooperation". We again have the notion of celebration, joy and oneness. As we understand how connected we are to each other and how deeply the present times call for co-creation and a deep awareness of the magic of our oneness, when we put all our skills, resources and efforts together, there is nothing we cannot manifest.
Jupiter turns retrograde on November 6. Its shadow period remains until June 1, 2014.
The degrees it travels this month (20º30-19º39' Cancer) are represented in the Sabian Symbols by "Venetian gondoliers giving a serenade" and "A famous singer is providing her virtuosity during an operatic performance". This retrogradation is asking us to be very honest with ourselves, particularly in our professional life, so that our social appearance matches the true talents of our inner selves. The more we are in alignment with our truth, the more we shall soar.
Uranus remains retrograde this whole month. Its shadow period remains until April 3, 2014.
The degrees it travels this month (9º26'-8º43' Aries) are represented in the Sabian Symbols by "A crystal gazer" and "A teacher gives new symbolic forms to traditional images". As linear time is leaving place to simultaneous, circular, sacred time, past, present and future are all happening at once. In that perspective, some past events haven't yet occurred and our future can change our past. We are living exciting times that help us redefine our sense of self and reveal to us how we are becoming pioneers of a new world, based in tradition but not limited by what the ancients left us.
Neptune turns direct on 11/13 at 2º34' Pisces.
Its shadow period remains until March 3, 2014. This degree is represented in the Sabian Symbols by "Petrified tree trunks lie broken on desert sand". The thinning of the veil between dimensions reveals remains of a past that have been conserved but in an imperfect manner. Through glimpses into where we come from, we can reconstruct the stages of our own evolution and measure more clearly what we have accomplished and what still needs to be co-created to bring about the Golden Age promised by all the world prophecies.

Our Intentional Meditation
Our intentional meditation started on Friday 10/18 with the Lunar Eclipse (Full Moon) in Aries.
On the Solar Eclipse (New Moon in Scorpio) on Sunday 11/3, take out your blank full moon charged papers and write on each a concise, positive intention. Place them on a balcony, in a garden or near a window so that they are out at exactly 4:50 AM (you can put them out up to several hours prior to that time). Once that moment has passed (even if several hours later, or the next morning), staple them together and put them away in a folder expecting the manifestation of all your dreams…
On Sunday 11/17, place outside, to be charged by the Full Moon in Taurus at exactly 7:16 AM, as many blank sheets as you will have intentions. Once that moment has passed, put them away in a folder until the next New Moon in Sagittarius on Monday 12/2 at 4:22 PM.
Friday 11/1: Uranus Square Pluto (4:13 AM), Mercury Sextile Mars (5:03 AM), Sun Sextile Pluto (10:02 AM), Sun Conjunct Mercury (1:19 PM), Mercury Sextile Pluto (3:46 PM)
Regarding Uranus Square Pluto, kindly refer to the opening paragraph. Today, more specifically, is a day of deep insights, power and clarity. As we X-ray people and situations, we are able to see through the lies and the manipulations. A day that requires of us that we use our power over others with consciousness. It is more essential than ever that we watch the words we say, the thoughts we have and the feelings we harbor as they can influence greatly our external reality.
Sunday 11/3: Solar Eclipse (4:50 AM), Sun Sextile Mars (1:49 AM)
Regarding the Solar Eclipse, kindly refer to the opening paragraph. Today, more specifically, we feel very dynamic. A great day to further our goals and start an important project requiring both courage and physical energy. Challenges are stimulating. We feel competitive and positive.
Tuesday 11/5: Venus enters Capricorn (0:43 AM till March 5, 2014)
During the next 4 months, our relationships are tested for their strength. We seek more serious commitments than usual. Great for getting engaged or married. If single, we could feel the weight of loneliness and become clearer on the kind of person we wish to attract in our lives.
Wednesday 11/6: Sun Conjunct Saturn (4:01 AM), Jupiter turns retrograde (9:03 PM till March 6, 2014)
A great day to clear our desk of clutter and backlogged work. We are focused, efficient, grounded and willing to work hard to further our short and long term goals. New responsibilities and duties could be thrust upon us, and we feel stable enough to welcome them with grace. During the next 4 months, our integrity is being tested: how honest are we with ourselves? How true are we to our real nature? A very important time to gain a new perspective on our own lives.
Thursday 11/7: Venus Sextile Neptune (5:16 PM)
A day to retreat from the world into serenity. We could feel more vulnerable than usual to noise, stress and negativity. We seek beauty, balance and peace. Wonderful for artistically minded individuals who could feel particularly inspired. A love story could not only feel, but also be quite ideal and magical.
Friday 11/8: Mercury Sextile Venus (4:24 AM)
Today we speak from love. We think with our hearts and feel with our minds. Pleasant social encounters grace our life. We feel more diplomatic than usual.
Saturday 11/9: Mars Sextile Saturn (3:57 AM), Mercury Trine Neptune (1:32 PM)
A day to be grounded in our energy and apply practical decisiveness to all our projects. The more structured and persistent we are, using slow motions rather than rash behavior, the more successful we shall be in the long run. Our intuition is keen today. We feel vibrations and what is not expressed. Wonderful for meditative, healing and artistic work.
Sunday 11/10: Mercury turns direct (1:12 PM)
Kindly refer to the opening paragraph.
Monday 11/11: Mercury Trine Neptune (12:48 PM)

Wednesday 11/13: Neptune turns direct (10:43 AM)
Kindly refer to the opening paragraph.
Thursday 11/14: Venus Square Uranus (5:13 PM)
A day to avoid rash decisions in romantic situations. A sudden need for independence could easily estrange those closest to us. Rather than impulsively separate, it is best to learn how to balance intimacy and freedom and maybe create an unusual relationship paradigm that honors both individuals. People met today feel strangely magnetic and stimulating.
Friday 11/15: Venus Conjunct Pluto (1:30 PM)
In social circumstances, graceful compromises will get us much further than power games. A day to exercise charm and good will. A romantic situation could deepen and become more passionate. A new relationship could feel destined and reveal layers of feelings we never knew existed.
Tuesday 11/19: Mars Sextile Jupiter (6:49 AM)
Great for financial investments, educational endeavors and traveling if we use moderation and discretion. We feel more adventurous and dynamic than usual. Wonderful for outdoor sports and physical activities requiring fearlessness.

Thursday 11/21: Sun enters Sagittarius (7:48 PM till Saturday 12/21 at 9:11 AM)

Saturday 11/23: Venus Sextile Saturn (10:46 AM)
A great day to solidify an existing relationship. We are more serious about it and ready to commit. Our ability to recognize its strengths and weaknesses grounds us in reality. If single at this time, we become clearer on the profile of the partner we wish to attract.
Sunday 11/24: Sun Square Neptune (9:53 AM)
Not the best day for anything requiring decisive action and clarity of purpose. We feel dreamy and tired. It is likely one of those days when we drag ourselves and don't get much done. Best to rest, engage in creative or artistic activities and allow our minds to float. More could get done that way than by forcefully applying our willpower.
Monday 11/25: Mercury Conjunct Saturn (5:55 PM)
A great day to complete all the work at hand. We are serious, focused, organized, practical and disciplined. Neither routine nor administrative details feel annoying today. We are likely to get through an enormous amount of work in a very short period of time.
Wednesday 11/27: Mercury Sextile Venus (6:45 PM), Mercury Trine Jupiter (11:24 PM)
A day of pleasant and inspiring social encounters. Wonderful for throwing a party or inviting friends over. Philosophical discussions, thoughts about education, religion and long distance travel are privileged. Inspiring insights open us to interesting new horizons.
Thursday 11/28: Venus Opposition Jupiter (4:01 AM)
The tendency today is towards excesses of all sorts. If we are careful not to indulge in flamboyance, overeating or spending beyond our current means, but remain modest and serene, we shall enjoy a grand time. Graciousness, elegance, poise and charm help us expand our social circle in highly beneficial ways.
Saturday 11/30: Sun Trine Uranus (10:25 AM)
A day to expect the unexpected. Plans change, new situations occur out of the blue, exciting people show up….. A day to adapt with grace and enjoy the ride. A celebration of our inventiveness and originality boosts our self-esteem and increases our charisma. A person from the past could reemerge, enabling us to appreciate how much we have evolved.
