Whats that in the Sky? Astrology in Action November 1, 2012

To get your bearings you only need remember that the Sun rises in the east and sets in the west.


For all you early birds

Jupiter will be nearly overhead near to Aldebaran, where all the aliens come from in the movies! The Pleiades, also known as the 7 sisters, are a little to the left. Have a look especially on the 2nd Nov when the Moon will be next to Jupiter. What a beautiful sight!

You will have to be up early to see Venus rising in the east. She will be rising up just before the Sun, and soon the glare of the morning light will obscure her. Let the Moon be your guide when she will be next to Venus on the 12th Nov.

Look southwards to see the Southern Cross lying on its side. The two big pointer stars will show you the way. The Southern Cross is important to us as it is always visible and to me it is the constellation of my homeland, the anchor of all Australians. Although tall trees or hills can obscure our view of the Cross.




For all you night owls

At night you will see Jupiter rising in the east and the Moon will be nearby on the 2nd Nov and also the 29th Nov. Aldebaran and the 7 sisters are also visible.

Now quickly turn around to see Mars setting in the west. He is following the Sun and will soon disappear in the early evening. Let the Moon be your guide when she is next to Mars on the 16th Nov. The brightest star close to Mars is Antares, another star that the aliens come from in the movies! Antares is the head of Scorpio and you can see the huge sweeping curve of his tail. But be quick as both Mars and the Scorpion will soon disappear into the horizon.

The Southern Cross will appear upside down and close to the horizon. As usual, the big two pointer stars will show you the way.

The movement of the planets herald time when we feel mood changes, times we are galvanized to take action, and others times when we lack energy. There are shifts in feelings and energy levels at all New and Full Moons, when planets move into signs, or when there are connections (aspects) between planets, or when they turn retrograde or move direct again.

Pay attention to the days when these shifts happen and notice your feelings and energy levels. This understanding will enhance your experience of life.

Enjoy the ride!
