The world of outer events is very present for you right now, as you seek success in all the usual channels and enjoy the planning that leads you to your next triumph. Only, with another part of your psyche altogether, you are also leaning to the inside and to your life as a whole. There have been major changes in the way that you present to others and how you feel about yourself that will continue. This month is yet another important turning point in this greater and more gradual transition. Unexpected promptings from inner realities shake you up as the weeks unfold and serve to remind you that there is more to your existence than meets the eye. You wishes are powerful now, so be careful what you wish for; you just might get it.
As the month begins, you are riding high on a wave of professional acknowledgment. This is one of the most productive periods of your life right now, and for the next year or so, with your ruler Saturn transiting through your career sector. One of the hallmarks of this period is hard work in job-related activities and the other is the resulting recognition. There is more to your situation now than meets the eye however. Beneath the surface of your awareness difficult matters are brewing like a witches' cauldron, as you attempt to come to terms with some of the scary places that lie within you. You have been morphing mightily over the past couple of years and the beat goes on, into the foreseeable months ahead. The good news is that you are beginning to get used to it and even to enjoy it. As a colleague once remarked, concerning the process of personal evolution, "it's the only game in town; at least the only game that anyone who is serious about their life might manage to have any real interest in." The New Moon of Friday, November 5th brings fresh energy to your purpose at multiple levels. You are full of ideas now and planning for future success, and networking like mad in pursuit of outer-world progress. Still, within your heart, you are stimulated to be more forthcoming with yourself regarding the potential for radical transformation that continues to unfold. This can obviously be a time of great confusion, especially since Neptune is prominent in your sector of resources right now. Your finances could be up in the air, or questionable as to continued source, and your values too are likely to be in flux as you sort through the various intuitive messages that you keep getting. When you look at things from a more spiritual perspective however, things might begin to fall into place. The First Quarter Moon of Saturday, November 13th, is traditionally a time of trial, a "crisis of action" as Rudhyar termed it. This is when you are attempting to discern which of your many courses of action is viable and when factors beyond your control could come up to challenge your assumptions. Old patterns of security needs or the fear of losing safety might be part of this picture, testing your faith. You could feel like there is nowhere to turn, until you step back from the concrete particulars and allow yourself to see life from a larger perspective. The Full Moon of Sunday, November 21st, brings a modicum of balance and fulfillment to the polarities of your situation, and enjoins you to forgo any way forward that fails to take Spirit very firmly into account as part of the bigger picture that you seek.
