TIPS FOR TODAY:
#1 – Here’s the latest on the current astrological phase we’re in, thanks to Astrograph.com….
NOVEMBER 18th LAST QUARTER MOON
This Last Quarter Moon, taking place early on Friday, November 18th, brings to its closing phase the powerful lunation represented by the Scorpio New Moon from the end of October. Uranus and Pluto were an important part of that configuration and have therefore been a large factor in these three weeks that have already passed since that time, as evidenced by the transformational and even revolutionary nature of the events that have been seen to unfold. Also in our personal lives we are moving – although perhaps slowly and often painfully – toward the place where we are truly headed, despite attempts at denial on the part of the strictly rational mind. As the period closes we are invited by surrounding cosmic forces to make better sense of what has thus far transpired in this cycle of becoming. Since Mercury is also slowing down, preparing to turn retrograde next week, this is an almost meditative time, this week leading up to the New Moon and Solar Eclipse in early Sagittarius taking place right on the American Thanksgiving Holiday.
That New Moon was trine Chiron, called the Wounded Healer, and this Last Quarter Moon as well as the coming Solar Eclipse aspects Chiron as well. It is fitting that the painful nature of our societal situation has never been more poignant than it is right now, with legitimate protestors erecting tents in the downtown areas of our major cities, joined by fringe elements and by people with really difficult stories of being left behind by the system, even as that same system rises up to crush the protestors and remove their tents. Mercury and Venus in conjunction are almost exactly quintile Chiron in the Friday morning skies, while the Moon is moving to oppose it. There are also aspects from the Sun and Moon to volatile Uranus so that further surprises are likely to be in store, even as Mercury nears the time of its retrograde motion, when affairs may take a very different turn than was originally planned. We do well to take a spiritual rather than a practical approach to the happenings of these final days of November, trying our best to ”let go and let God” since there is really no other alternative. We know in our hearts, and can see in these stars, that this fall and winter ratchets up the pressure for change that the spring will in even greater measure unfold.
The Sabian Symbol for the Sun’s degree of this Quarter Moon in late Scorpio is illuminating: ”Indians making Camp.” Marc Edmond Jones calls this degree ”a symbol of man’s inexhaustible capacity for self-establishment and for finding everything he needs at hand [also] resourcefulness and finding real opportunity in the least promising of situations.” The Moon’s degree that accompanies it in this Quarter Moon configuration is ”A rainbow,” the biblical symbol of God’s grace toward man– and woman–kind, even in adversity. We will need these sorts of guideposts to get us through the difficult and yet richly rewarding days ahead.

# 4 – And a little Abraham is always good for the soul :-)…
Someone asked us recently, “Is there any limitation to the body’s ability to heal?” And we said, “None, other than the belief that you hold.” And he said, “Then why aren’t people growing new limbs?” And we said, “Because no one believes that they can.”— Abraham
p.s. If you are looking for a way to fortify yourself against possible radiation and other toxic substances, you may want to check out my website’s What’s New page for information about a superfood that is a superior blend of 7 whole-food sea vegetables. I did some research after hearing about it at Natural News and was impressed with both the product and company. The product supplies all your body’s daily nutritional needs, plus offers natural protection from radiation and other toxic substances. The company adheres to universal principles in the way the business is run and is dedicated to giving back to the community through Feeding America and offering fund-raising opportunities to non-profits across the U.S. That’s my kind of win-win-win situation! You can also get updated information about radiation and iodine, plus two free reports, one on weight loss, the other on glutathione and anti-aging.
