November ushers into the atmosphere an energy that is rather nurturing. A preponderance of planets in water and earth signs, both of which are introverted, makes for a month that is deeply personal and subjective. Throughout the month, Mars in Virgo triggers these earth and water planets in a positive way so practical results can be achieved easily and with little effort. This is a good month for making plans, taking care of details, and perhaps making early arrangements for upcoming holiday celebrations. It is also a good work month; showing initiative and being a self-starter can be very much to your advantage. Let?s now look at some of the specific aspects that Mars will be making.

Mars in Virgo continues its trine to Pluto in Capricorn (in effect from October 15 to November 14, exact on October 31). Under its influence, you should have a clear, inclusive perspective on the changes that need to occur in your life in order to feel in charge. This trine from Mars gives you the practicality necessary for making step-by-step plans so needed changes can be made in a way that is effective, efficient, and harmonious.

Almost simultaneously to that trine, Mars sextiles Saturn in Scorpio (in effect from October 26 to November 30, exact on November 9). This is a time when you will have a capacity for hard work. You will also be able to analyze situations with an awareness of other people?s needs and desires, and this awareness, too, can lead to practical planning?and thus highly successful results.

While the Sun in Scorpio sextiles Mars in Virgo (in effect from October 23 to November 23, exact on November 3), you?ll have plenty of energy for getting the job done! This is an excellent time for deepening your bond with people who are important to you. There will be high energy of an introverted nature in the atmosphere that allows you to delve deeply and insightfully into the psychology of others, as well as gain a deeper understanding of yourself. You can harness this newfound sense of personal empowerment and use it to create practical results in the workplace. Naturally, though, contracts are best entered into after the 10th, when Mercury goes direct.

On the 7th, Jupiter goes retrograde at 20? Cancer. This retrograde station marks a time when you can begin to turn inward and determine what you need to feel secure and nurtured in your interactions with those to whom you feel close. This is a time for getting more deeply in touch with your feelings and your gut instincts about . . . . .

Each month, the NEW MOON offers us a fresh opportunity to take charge of our lives using the magic present in the atmosphere to manifest our dreams. On each New Moon POWER DAY, a window of opportunity opens that we can use by writing down a list of wishes (ten wishes maximum each month) of what we want to come true in our lives. There are times to ?go with the flow? and times to take charge. A New Moon Power Day is a day to take charge. Wish for whatever you would like to manifest in your life, but focus especially on those things that you have not yet been able to attain, even though you may have wanted them for a long time. Focus and be specific.

Because this month?s New Moon occurs in SCORPIO, at this time you may want to include wishes on your list concerning one or more of the following categories that are ruled by Scorpio: transformation, power, strength, courage, integrity, debt, jealousy, revenge, and the ability to distinguish between actions that constitute taking the high road from those that involve taking the low road?along with the willingness to chose the former over the latter and take the path of forgiveness.

Sample wishes:
?I want to easily find myself forgiving others in a way that is empowering and healing for me?
?I want toe burden of debt easily lifted from me?
?I want to easily find myself choosing the high road?
?I want to easily find myself filled with the courage to make those changes in my life that are in my overall best interest.?

For exact best times for wishing, log in to? select the ?New Moon Power Days? icon located on the members home page, three days prior to the New Moon.

NEW FEATURE: All members automatically receive the exact best times for wishing in their inboxes each and every month.
