USA Mid-term elections - November 6, 2018


Nov 6 The transiting North and South Nodes will have just retrograded (their normal path) at 1;22:32 pm ET into 29 degrees Cancer and Capricorn from Leo-Aquarius, subtly changing the tone. The tone had been focus on large groups and causes, look at me and my own point of view. The tone is now more towards using past responsibility and stability for family or national harmony. Let us hope the south node in Capricorn does not reveal more hate and desire to defeat at all costs. The Democrats are symbolized by Saturn/Capricorn and their past actions may come to light. Perhaps the Cancer north node will bring attention to the family and our nation. The USA is a Cancer country, the sign of the transiting North Node. Since this change is early afternoon Eastern Time, it will be interesting to learn if the tone of the electorate changes.

The long-term background transit or cycle for the USA is that of the Democrats continual opposition to Republicans. Sharp focus dates were Feb 12, June 26, lastly Nov. 12, 2018.

Neptune the confuser is in  a cycle indicating dissolving the borders, rule of law, confusion of the voters, and the Democrats adjusting.

Another cycle is the Democrats trying to change the outcome of the elections.

Nov 6 The mundane or inter-planetary relationships, not related to the USA chart, indicate ease and harmony with a big turnout early; possible disruptions between 5 and 8 pm ET followed by a settling and Democrats leading.

Uranus retrogrades back to Aries late on November 6, indicating changes, more action, and perhaps violence. Very late in the day more emotional outbursts about the election process.

Planetary relationship to the USA chart:

Nov 6: process does not go as expected, possibly because machines malfunction. As the day goes forward, early harmony, then contention then harmony with many women and young people voting, more contention. Then the Moon goes into Scorpio, revealing more serious or introspection about the issues followed by more harmony. Later it seems the Republicans are ahead, but there are more changes. Perhaps the day ends with nothing definitive.

If the counting and controversy continues, the aspects to the USA chart:

Nov 7 reveals mild adjustment to the counting, with nothing resolved.

Nov 8 Looks like the results are contested. However, Jupiter goes into Sagittarius on November 8, favoring the Republicans. At the end of the day, opportunity favoring the presidency.

Nov 9
, The Moon reveals times of harmony, stress, opposition, adjustment, opportunity for the Democrats.

If this still goes on Nov 10 shows opposition, some fraud, adjustment and no resolution. However the Moon goes into Capricorn, favoring the Democrats.

Nov 11, Democrats oppose the presidency, activation of crowds or groups, emotional challenge to the presidency, opposition to the Republicans, followed by adjustments.

Nov 12 is the last date of the cycle of the Democrats opposing the Republicans, but mild opposition and the Senate and House votes resolved.

Nov 13 another adjustment or mild change from the Congress.

Nov 14: if the process went to the higher court, it is resolved.

Who wins? It is so close it is hard to call.

According to Rex Bills’ The Rulership Book:
Democrats are ruled by Saturn/Capricorn
Republicans are ruled by Jupiter/Sagittarius
Elections are ruled by Uranus
The voters are ruled by Neptune.

Nov 1 - Nov 30 2018

Inter-planetary aspects and the USA
USA chart used is the Sibely chart with 14 Sagittarius 25 Asc.
For your personal reading, please contact Patty.

Transiting Neptune is focusing on the USA ascendant in what is called a “hard aspect” or challenge. I am interpreting this as the caravan heading toward us. Neptune can be compassionate, confusing, deceitful, victimizing and expect to be taken care of. From what I’ve read in the news, the people in the caravan are escaping horrible conditions in their countries, and are looking to work in the USA, meaning they are not trying to be welfare recipients. However, the numbers in the caravan are overwhelming and cause confusion, both to them, Mexico and the USA. The nation has a choice of being compassionate and accepting them all with blind faith, or use some discernment to avoid having the nation taken advantage of. I am asking for everyone to pray for the highest good of all to come out of this situation. Neptune began its focus March 17 this year, repeated Oct 2 and will end Jan 15, 2019. There is a wonderful cycle representing integration beginning February 2019. More about this later.

11/6: Tues: Uranus retrogrades at 00 Aries
11/8: Thurs: Jupiter retrogrades at 00 Sagittarius
11/15: Mars goes into 00 Pisces

Nov 1: THurs: Continued full Moon from yesterday, Oct 31, Halloween

Nov 2: Fri: Moon goes into Virgo, harmonizing with the Sun in Scorpio. Good opportunity to take opportunity for practical tweaking of investments. Virgo and Scorpio getting along well. Also good day for Capricorn and Cancer. Taurus may sense mild opposition over money; Pisces may have experience distraction from dreams.

Nov 6: Tues: Uranus retrogrades at 00 Aries until Jan. 6 when it goes direct at 28 Aries 36. For those of you with a planet or point at 28, 29, and 00 degrees, change will be noticed. The retrograde movement backtracks over these degrees, asking you to evaluate what changes are happening - or should be happening - in your life. This is the time to direct the changes. When Uranus goes direct in Jan, and traverses these degrees again through first week in March 2019, the changes should be complete. Remember, if you do not take action and direct the changes, the changes will happen to you without your direction.

Nov 6: USA mid-term elections: This will be longer than expected, so a separate article will be sent to you.

Nov 7: Wed: new Moon at 15 Scorpio 11. Good day for Scorpio to reveal plans. Cancer and Pisces will help; Virgo can lend details, Capricorn quiet, practical leadership. Taurus may experience money control issues. Libra and Sagittarius are neutral. Aries and Gemini adjust to intensity or requests for financial accounting. Leo and Aquarius experience a mildly tense day.

Nov 8: Moon goes into Sagittarius.

Nov 8: Thurs.: Jupiter retrogrades at 00 Sagittarius through Aug 11 when it goes direct at 14 Sagittarius 30. The retrograde movement backtracks over these degrees, asking you to re-evaluate areas of expansion, joy or excess. For those of you with a planet or point between 14 and 29 and 00 degrees, use this time to discover what was happening so you can direct or correct. Jupiter represents travel, and if you traveled the previous cycle dates, you probably will travel again. Or... learn something new.

Nov 9: Fri: Relationships are good, with cooperation, balance and friendship the key. Great day for Libra, Aquarius and Gemini. Aries may be asked to cooperate; Leo may experience male opposition or insistence; Sagittarius sees an opportunity for inclusion. Other signs are neutral, although today is a good, harmonious day.

Nov 10: Sat: Moon goes into Capricorn

Nov 11: Sun: opportunity for financial and other negotiations; ask for a loan, etc. The one in power offers the other one in power cooperation in a new deal. Good day for Scorpio and Pisces, Taurus and Virgo. Cancer may feel mild opposition or a powerful relationship; Taurus may sense being pushed.

Nov 12; Mon: Sun and Moon in harmony, meaning a good day for everyone, but especially for Capricorn, Scorpio, Virgo and Pisces. Yesterday’s opportunity may be presented again.

Nov 12: USA: last focus date of a process that had dates of Feb 12 and June 26: opposition to expansion of either or both the population or dealings with allies and business partners.

Nov 19: USA: last focus date of a process that had dates of Feb 19 and June 17: adjustment to the soul’s purpose of the USA, which is focus on America financially and curb excess expenditures to other nations. (Folks, this is in the chart, not my opinion.)

Nov 13: Tues: Moon goes into Aquarius.

Nov 14: Wed: No exact astrological aspects.

Nov 15: Thurs: quarter Moon in the signs of Aquarius and Scorpio, who experience control-issue relationships. Leo and Taurus have control issues. Gemini and Libra can help Aquarius, Cancer and Pisces can help Scorpio. Also, there is an opportunity for a new group project. This is an opportunity for an idea to be revisited, worked on, and accomplished after Uranus goes direct Jan 6.

Nov 15: Thurs: Moon goes into Pisces. Mars goes into Pisces through Dec 31. Great time for creative presentations, such as music, dance and theater. Strong Pisces energy (if Pisces energy can be strong!) and time for Pisces to put creativity forward for acceptance. Your male mate becomes softer and romantic, especially for Cancer and Scorpio. Virgo, though, may be irritated from being taken away from tasks and work for either romance or an escape. Taurus and Capricorn have the opportunity for romance or escape from work. Aquarius and Aries neutral. Gemini and Sagittarius adjust to changes, but enjoy this.

Nov 16: Fri: Venus goes direct at 25 Libra 14. Any relationship or financial discomfort may be “fixed” after today. Mercury goes retrograde at 13 Sagittarius 29; goes direct Dec 6. Travel plans may go awry during this time, especially for Sagittarius, Gemini and Virgo. If you have plans, triple-check them before leaving and again at arrival. I’ve traveled frequently under a Mercury retrograde and was resilient. The “mishaps” ended up pleasant adventures. A note for those of you with a retrograde Mercury in your chart: this is a good time for you to plan, communicate and make agreements. The rest of us need your help at this time.

Nov 17: Sat: No exact astrological aspects.

Nov 18: Sun: harmonious Sun and Moon, revealing a good day for everyone and especially for Pisces, Scorpio and Cancer. Late morning the Moon goes into Aries.

Nov 19: Mon: Very busy day. In the car, on the train, or the ship. Expect too much to have been planned with things being late, even into late evening. However, it is a good day for a vacation even though conveyances may be late. Pisces and Sagittarius have the most trouble, followed by Gemini and Virgo. Cancer and Scorpio may help Pisces, with Aries and Leo helping Sagittarius.

Nov 20: Tues: quincunx, see-saw day when things do not go as expected, but when you are flexible, it is better. Aries and Scorpio do not understand each other, with Aries pushing Scorpio, who esists. Leo and Sagittarius can help Aries with Cancer and Pisces helping Scorpio. Early evening Moon goes into Taurus.

Nov 21: Wed: another quincunx, see-saw day, but more intense. The money manager demands financial accounting from the group. Globally, the one in power demands accounting for the ill-planed rebel group who is forced to adjust. Scorpio pushes Aries for financial accounting, with Aries having to adjust. Leo and Sagittarius can help Aries, with Cancer and Pisces helping Scorpio.

Nov 22: Thurs: Sun goes into Sagittarius at 04:01:am through Dec 21. Happy birthday Sagittarius. This is Sagittarius’ time to travel, whether physically or mentally. Gemini enjoys verbal sparring; Leo and Aries enjoy a creative month. Virgo and Pisces challenged by fast, unexpected happenings and perhaps visits from traveling friends. Taurus and Cancer adjust to unexpected visits, too, with your schedules awry. Libra and Aquarius have opportunities for travel or educational adventures.

Nov 22: USA: something happens behind the scenes causing an adjustment to the office of the presidency and the president himself.

Nov 23:Fri:  No exact astrological aspects.

Nov 24: Sat:  Neptune goes direct at 13 Pisces 41, revisiting 14, 15 and 16 degrees. If you have these degrees in your chart, they will be focused again. This cycle began April 2017, with the end of the focus Christmas 2018. Neptune in the positive gives creativity, spiritual benefits or what house Neptune rules in your chart. In the difficult, Neptune brings confusion, chaos, betrayal or deceit. Look to the last time Neptune focused on the planet at those degrees to learn how to direct this energy for the highest good of all. If you want personal direction, please contact Patty the Astrologer.

Nov 24: USA: an opportunity cones to the presidency for good expansion or good news regarding the populace itself.

Nov 25: Sun: Moon goes into Cancer to create a quincunx, see-saw day with Sagittarius. The books say Cancer and Sagittarius are at a natural quincunx relationship and should not get along, but we do. Jupiter is exalted in the sign of Cancer, bringing celestial harmony and friendship between the signs, I am a Cancer and have found friendships with Sagittarius wonderful. Sagittarius and Cancer both love adventure, with Cancer directing Sagittarius’ enthusiasm.

Nov 26: Mon: a Sagittarius day, meaning travel, higher education and higher religion or spirituality. Sagittarius has a great day promoting their ideas or traveling, with Gemini perhaps experiencing their partner “flying away.” Leo and Aries an enthusiastic day. Libra and Aquarius have the opportunity for enthusiastic social events, Scorpio and Capricorn are neutral; Taurus and Cancer adjust to the happy unexpected. Also today, a lot of enthusiastic communication or news, which continually changes and is incomplete. If there are arguments, realize the information or ideas are spontaneous and not thought out. Sagittarius is trying to communicate to a fog, meaning people do not understand. Aries and Leo can help Sagittarius, with Cancer and Scorpio helping Pisces (if needed).

Nov 27: Tues: Moon goes into Leo, and creates a harmonious relationship with the Sun in Sagittarius. Happy, enthusiastic day. Also, the lack of communication from yesterday clears up. Any incomplete communication or news becomes clear. Opportunity for a compassionate or creative project or plan to be accepted by the ones in charge. Pisces has the opportunity to work with Capricorn for a practical application of their dream. Much positive communication and especially good for Sagittarius. Gemini may think they are being opposed, but they are being asked to look into the future; Virgo may be overwhelmed by the speed of news; Leo and Aries enjoy the day; Cancer and Taurus adjust (again) to interruptions. Scorpio is neutral. Libra and Aquarius have the opportunity to be included.

Nov 28: Wed: No exact astrological aspects.

Nov 29: Thurs: American Thanksgiving: Moon goes into Virgo creating a quarter Moon in the signs of Virgo and Sagittarius. Expect plans to be changed or people to be late. Details may be changed, to the chagrin of Virgo, Gemini and Pisces also affected by changes. Taurus and Capricorn can help Virgo, with Leo and Aries helping Sagittarius.

Nov 30: Fri: Relationship independence between Libra and Aries, with Cancer and Capricorn challenged with independence issues. These signs love challenges, so today may be fun for them. However, Gemini and Aquarius can help Libra, with Leo and Sagittarius helping Aries. At the very least, a busy day with relationships.

INFERIOR CONJUNCTION OF VENUS & SOLAR WIND

Space Weather News for Oct. 22, 2018

INFERIOR CONJUNCTION OF VENUS: This week, something strange and wonderful is happening to the shape of Venus. Telescopes pointed at the second planet show it becoming very large (larger, apparently, than Jupiter) and curving into a narrow crescent. Astronomers call this an "inferior solar conjunction"--when Venus passes almost directly between Earth and the Sun. The event is extremely beautiful, yet dangerous to observe. Visit today's edition of Spaceweather.com for photos and safe observing tips.

Venus is retrograde in the sign of Scorpio, joining Mercury and Jupiter, intensifying the Scorpio effect. As Venus retrogrades, it will sextile Saturn in Capricorn, indicating an opportunity to refinance or heal a relationship.

When Venus is retrograde, there can be a re-visiting of relationships. Perhaps someone from the past is in contact. Since Venus is retrograde in Scorpio, there could also be a re-visiting of financial situations, perhaps planning to restructure them. If your relationship is difficult, look to the woman's emotions as being off balance or intense.

This is a good time for Scorpio to further financial plans. Taurus may sense opposition, although if keeping to the practical good business. Cancer and Pisces enjoy good finances and relationships, although early Cancer may feel opposition. Virgo and Capricorn have an opportunity to tweak fiances and renew relationships. Libra and Sagittarius should be neutral, although early Libra may experience challenges with plans. Aries and Gemini adjust to love relationships wanting to be close; Leo and Aquarius may experience relationship control issues.

ARCTIC AURORAS LIKELY THIS WEEK: An irregular hole in the sun's atmosphere is spewing a stream of solar wind toward Earth. Estimated time of arrival: Oct. 24th. High-latitude sky watchers should be alert for auroras when the gaseous material arrives. A bright full Moon on Oct. 24th will add its luminosity to that of any geomagnetic storm, creating some nice landscape photo-ops around the Arctic Circle. Expect communication disruptions. The energy is coming through Scorpio.

Oct 7, 2018

October through October 31 2018

Your personal interpretation is available from Patty.

Venus is retrograde until November 16.

The United States’ chart reveals Saturn in two challenging aspects: the last focus date of personal, dangerous opposition to the office of the presidency and to the president himself on 10/2; repeat of 115 and 8/10. And the last focus date with Saturn (again) challenging the office of the presidency. Repeat of 1/20 and 7/31. According to Rex Bills “The Rulership Book,” Saturn and Capricorn represent Democrats.

Also for the USA, 10/2 is  the middle focus date of a cycle that began 3/17 and ends 1/15/19. Vague and misleading communication or news. The situation causes the population to be misinformed and confused, and undermines the law, the other scenario is confused, obscure and misleading negotiations with or about allies or enemies. 

10/2: The global planetary relationships (aspects) indicate more arguments. There is also a quarter Moon in the signs of Cancer and Libra, suggesting the planets urge for arguments.

10/2 USA: Continued, serious, personal opposition. This trend began Jan 15, repeated Aug 10 and ends today. The opposition is to both the office of the president and to the person of the president. Continued incomplete and distorted news, coming from the area of the news media, challenging both the law and Americans ourselves. This is the dissolving of clear communication and dissolving of the rule of law itself, not specifically Mr. Kavanagh. This began March 17, repeats Oct 2 and goes through Jan 15, 2019. Additionally, strong forces dredge up past USA mistakes about or from groups of men, the subject sex, self worth and money. The only good astrological indication is good trend that began Feb 14, repeated March 31 and ends Oct 2, which is an opportunity from behind the scenes for truth and good news for the Supreme Court. 10/2 Judge Kavanagh: one aspect says he communicates well, another indicates there is an adjustment, and yet other is strong opposition to him and his family.

10/3 Moon goes into Leo.

10/4 better emotional atmosphere with an attempt to harmony.

10/4 USA; more harmony with communication focused on the law.

10/5: Venus goes retrograde at 10 Scorpio 50 and goes direct Nov 16. The general explanation is that any relationship glitches are usually from the woman or her mistakes. Also, not good time to make financial or romantic commitments. Scorpio love life and money may slow down. Taurus may experience the disappearance or delay with relationships; Leo and Aquarius may experience stubborn relationship resistance. Cancer and Pisces may have nice relationships but slower; or Maybe clandestine ones. Libra and Sagittarius are neutral. Aries and Gemini adjust to relationship and social events not going as expected.

10/6 USA: Kavanagh confirmation, with vociferous, frequent challenges to the Supreme Court itself. As we watched, we heard shouting from the gallery, with order having to be restored at the demand of the Vice President. From the news: “Mike Pence squarely faces Kavanaugh protesters as he exits Capitol building. Kavanaugh confirmation sparks sharp reaction from celebrities. Obama AG Eric Holder questions legitimacy of Supreme Court after Kavanaugh confirmation.”

10/7: Adjustment to the confirmation of Supreme Court Associate Judge Kavanaugh.

10/7 USA opportunity for good communications, but still opposing the president. From the news: “Pelosi vows to unearth FBI docs on Kavanaugh as confirmation fuels impeachment talk.”

10/8 USA: conflicting communications with some conciliation but more strong challenges.

10/9: Mercury goes into Scorpio, with Scorpio possibly revealing plans. Taurus senses verbal opposition; Cancer and Pisces enjoy good financial communication. Virgo and Capricorn have opportunity to be included in practical financial plans. Leo and Aquarius experience demands to account for expenses. Libra and Sagittarius are neutral. Aries and Gemini adjust to financial communication.

10/10: Continued opposition and women demonstrators. The fixed signs of Taurus, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius involved in persistent, challenging situations.

10/11: No exact planetary relationships.

10/12: Moon goes into Sagittarius. More challenges to the status quo, focused on the law. If business related, the challenge is to balance trade. However, there is an opportunity for communication to be calm and practical. Good day for Scorpio, Cancer and Pisces. Capricorn is challenged but has the opportunity for conciliation.

10/12 USA: last focus date of the cycle severely challenging the office of the presidency. Repeat of 1/20 and 7/31. It may be an unpleasant day for the USA. This is the last outer-planet or “important” planetary relationship to the USA chart this month.

10/13: The Sun and Moon are in good relationship and when they are, everybody is also. Great day for the fire signs of Aries, Leo and Sagittarius; and the air signs of Gemini, Libra and Aquarius.

10/14: Moon goes into Capricorn.

10/15: Scorpio communicates about money or love. Cancer and Pisces enjoy a harmonious day with loved ones; Taurus senses opposition; Virgo and Capricorn can help Taurus and have the opportunity for financial or love communication. Libra and Sagittarius are neutral. Aries and Gemini adjust to intense communication. Leo and Aquarius have stubborn control issues possibly about finances.

10/16: quarter Moon in the signs of Capricorn and Libra, who are challenging each other, and drawing Aries and Cancer in. Taurus and Virgo can help Capricorn, with Gemini and Aquarius helping Libra. Quarter Moon days usually indicate buy with the unexpected.

10/17: Moon goes into Aquarius.

10/18: No exact planetary relationships.

10/19: Sun and Moon in harmony, bringing a nice day for everyone. Communication is peaceful and harmonious, possibly with a well-though-out solution. Moon goes into Pisces after 4 pm ET, and communication gets contentious again. If there are protests, they are stubbornly persist, well financed and opposed to change. The planet indicate they are against the majority and the new.

10/20: No exact planetary relationships

10/21: No exact planetary relationships

10/22: Very early a quincunx day when things do not go as expected, after which the Moon goes into Aries. Later in the day an opportunity for agreement. The financial person offers a solution to the financial situation to the one in power. Good day for Scorpio, Cancer, Pisces, then Capricorn and Virgo..

10/23: Sun goes into Scorpio. This is the month for Scorpio to initiate; Taurus experiences relationship focus; Cancer and Pisces enjoy smooth situations; Virgo and Capricorn have opportunity for practical financial situations; Libra and Sagittarius are neutral; Aries and Gemini adjust to intense people and perhaps requests for financial information. Leo and Aquarius have control issues over money.

10/23: day of financial opposition. The financial controller is asking the checkbook keeper to look ahead and could meet with delay. Scorpio and Taurus having communication issues, followed by Leo and Aquarius. Cancer and Pisces can help Scorpio, with Virgo and Capricorn helping Taurus.

10/24: Moon goes into Taurus to create a full Moon in Taurus and Scorpio. The areas of the body for this full Moon are the neck, throat, thyroid and voice; the generative organs, large intestine and anus. Control issues abound. The fixed signs of Taurus, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius the most affected. Again, Virgo and Capricorn can help Taurus; with Cancer and Pisces helping Scorpio.

10/24 cont’d: Opportunity for conciliation. The financial person, who may be young, offers a good idea to the established entity. Astrologically, Scorpio offers the opportunity to Capricorn. Remember opportunities require action to be experienced. Also a good day for Cancer, Pisces, Virgo and Capricorn.

10/25: No exact planetary relationships

10/26: Moon goes into Gemini and creates a quincunx day when things do not go as expected and are better when you adjust. Unexpected communication may come from Gemini or young people. Also, Sun and Venus are together in Scorpio who may initiate romance or intimacy. Good day for Scorpio romantically and financially if you will act. Taurus has opposition. Leo and Aquarius have control issue. Cancer and Pisces enjoy a good day romantically and financially. Libra and Sagittarius are neutral. Aries and Gemini adjust to intensity. Virgo and Capricorn have the opportunity for romance or financial benefits if you will look outside work and accept.

10/27: Another day of opportunity for beneficial, practical, financial situation if the opportunity is accepted. Scorpio and Capricorn work together for this. Cancer and Pisces along with Virgo and Taurus benefit. Good day for everyone.

10/28: Moon goes into Cancer.

10/29: Sun and Moon getting along, revealing a armonious emotional day for everyone. Good financial news about a renegotiation. This is quiet, but long-lasting.

10/30: Moon goes into Leo.

10/31: quarter Moon in the signs of Leo and Scorpio, who experience control issues, along with Taurus and Aquarius. Mercury goes into Sagittarius through Jan. 5 because it goes retrograde Nov. 16 and direct Dec 6.

10/31 cont’d: Retrograde Venus backs into Scorpio, asking Scorpio and all of us, to look at romantic relationships and financial situations to learn if corrections need to be made. Venus goes direct Nov. 16 when decisions may come to fruition

10/31 cont’d: relationship challenges, especially for the fixed signs of Taurus, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius. The Halloween costumes may be more ghoulish than ususal. Communication or the news changes hourly and is unstable and incomplete
