[ALL SIGNS For most of this month I am writing about a major challenging aspect between Saturn and Neptune that will be exact on Nov. 26 and continues through 2016. Saturn represents hard, practical reality while Neptune rules that which is elusive, wispy, and not transparent. They represent antitheses to each other. Those who are aware of world economics realize that we are falling into an ever-deepening hole of debt (Saturn), the end of which can only be imagined (Neptune). That debt is based upon fiat money (Neptune) and trust (also Neptune). In and of itself there is no real value to currency anywhere in the world. Saturn (reality) punches a hole in that trust and it is likely there will be bankruptcies all over the world, many of which will not have the wherewithal to “restructure” under Chapter 11. The fantasy world of the stock markets (Neptune) will be reduced to real values. This has been happening since August. Credit will likely disappear. Promises (Neptune) will be broken because the reality (Saturn) is too challenging to maintain. Issues of potable water will be front and center, due to increasing droughts and a dropping water table, both realities that many ignore. Prisons will be unable to contain their many habitants and courts will have to find new solutions. Pharmaceuticals and hospitals will be overloaded with new rules and regs.

[SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) Over the next seven weeks life will work more smoothly if you let yourself be led by the “signs,” circumstances, and people around you. It will not be a time to attack in anger or initiate new ideas, but mainly to respond to others.

[SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) You are given help in career development from behind the scene. Listen carefully to your intuition or your hunches. The information is probably accurate. Associates in your community will be supportive and encouraging as you follow your next direction.

[CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) You may be mixing business and pleasure in a pleasant combination. This is a good time to discuss issues within a relationship because you are steady of mind and likely to be realistic, in relation to yourself as well as others. You intend to keep your promises.

[AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) Because you are willing to take on responsibilities within your community, your reputation increases in value. Now is a time that you are able to hold together both the vision and the steps on the path to bring that goal to fruition. Your effort serves as a beacon for the future.

[PISCES (February 19 to March 20) You may have fortunate circumstances related to the Internet, travel, and publishing. Help and information comes from those at a distance. Educational activities are favored. Meanwhile you are waiting for a payoff of insurance, taxes, alimony, or some other debtor.

[ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Your partner may take on an uncharacteristic manner of self-assertion. He or she is not so likely to back down from a fight. Life will be generally more harmonious if you stay off the hot topics. If it is important to tackle them, seek a counselor, a trusted friend, or a negotiator to keep things fair.

[TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Follow your instincts about where you need to be, particularly if that includes a new social situation or work environment. A teacher comes along who can be beneficial to your health and work situation. You may be mixing business and pleasure in a pleasant combination.

[GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) This is a time in which it is important for you to serve as a healing listener to those whom you love. You are traversing challenging waters and you have what it takes to be the strong one. Your soul is being fed by one who is not involved in the crisis, but who knows you very well.

[CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Your path of growth during this period of your life is to attend to home, hearth, and family members. You are somehow the glue that holds everyone together and smooths out the rough spots. The outer world of business and social life is on hold for a while as you tend to family matters.

[LEO (July 23 to August 22) Your attention continues to be focused on home, hearth, and family. You have ideas to present, but you need to be aware that your thinking is not really objective right now. If others in the family want to offer suggestions, make an effort to take them into account.

[VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) Cleave to your optimistic attitude during this period. It will provide you with healing so you can give support to another who needs your support. Aspects favor study, nearby travel, and educational interests. It seems everyone is interested in what you think.

[LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) Mars, the red planet of war, enters your sign this week and will be traveling with you for seven weeks. This energy is best used to handle physically heavy projects or take initiatives that you might not otherwise tackle.

It is healthier to take charge of this assertive energy. If not, the common side effects are irritability and infections.
