This issue marks my 17th year here at The “READER.” Thanks to John, Eric, my beloved Carrie, et al., for all your help, encouragement and understanding. I owe you all more than I could ever pay back! Since the passing of Sue Moon, you’ve not only made me Nebraska’s best known astrologer — you’ve made me Nebraska’s only known astrologer. From MOJOPO, Servant of the Sun, High Priest of Nature and Guardian of the Twilight Well. “May you never thirst.”
SCORPIO (10.22-11.20) What a trip! You’ve got one week to pull/put yourself together for your winter program/agenda, and then the spotlight turns to other things…and nobody cares anymore. Decide whom you love by — or on — the Full Moon in Taurus on Sunday, and then do something about it — before nobody cares anymore! (Ever notice how phallic an exclamation point seems…or am I just being a Scorpio? Well then, what does a question mark remind you of? A side view, lying down?)
SAGITTARIUS (11.21-12.20) Take a break ’til March. I’m just talking about your interaction with others. It’s time for you to hole up and start figuring out your spring thing. Jupiter just retrograded in Cancer. You expand by staying at home, having babies and becoming a mother, taking/making time with/for your mother, redesigning your pad (for spring) and searching your innermost being for your cause of/for creation.
CAPRICORN (12.21-1.18) You’ve got ’til sunset on November 25th, when Mercury re-conjuncts your ruler Saturn for the 3rd time, to make good on last month’s contracts, deals and/or promises relating to any activities (and/or trials) which occurred on October 8th and resurfaced on the 29th. Show up with the goods for/by Thanksgiving. They’ll be waiting to see if you’re a/the turkey. Gobble, gobble…
AQUARIUS (1.19-2.17) Uranians: Just another short month to keep it in your pants. Saturnians: You haven’t got a chance — of keeping it in your pants! You just meet ’em…and you already want to pet/let ’em — and I ain’t just talkin’ ’bout yer kitty cat! It’s a good, time-honored way of staying warm. And as I always say, “when it comes to a choice between duty and honor — I’d rather be on ’er.”
PISCES (2.18-3.19) Neptunians: Your mystical ruler Neptune just turned direct at 2° Pisces. The gears for your fears started disengaging during the first week of last June. You’ve got ’til your birthday to redirect some very nebulous, long-lasting aspects. Jupiterians: Please read Sagittarius.
ARIES (3.20-4.18) Read Aquarius — and then get back to work. Your ruler Mars is in your 6th House of Virgo, in the sign of Virgo, reminding you of the details, details, details! Reminding you twice to get back to work!
TAURUS (4.19-5.19) One more week in the barrel, Matey! The Fool Moon is in your sign on the mo(u)rning of November 17th. It’s been a rough 3 to 4 weeks. How does the MOJO know? Mercury, which just went direct, is about to conjunct Saturn, “the taskmaster,” in your opposite sign of Scorpio. It ain’t over, Rover, but now you’ve got a chance. Who’s your master? Who came to mind? Welcome the down time that your current loneliness can/will bring. (How does the MOJO know?) Wait a week, and then you’ll sing! Welcome the change on Friday morning.
GEMINI (5.20-6.19) I hear you’re a little “light in the loafers…” Oh well, with your ruler Mercury blowing through the mysteries of life and death (Scorpio), you’ve just been through hell, and you’re out of breath. Since October, it’s been too heavy for you. We create our heaven and/or our hell at every moment. There’s no “Big Guy” in the sky, no judge and no jury. Not necessary. You are the/your only witness. As a Gemini, you are the “breath of spring.” Relax. Take a deep breath and see what the next one will bring.
CANCER (6.20-7.21) Happy Full Moon in Taurus this Sunday, on the morning of November 17th. Your appetites are being stirred! Jupiter just retrograded ’til just before spring at 20° Cancer, potentializing your winter’s preparation (menu?) schedule. Your concerns are/will be for your inner world, your family, your mother and your belly. When in doubt, you’re gonna munch a bunch. I figure you’re due to accrue an extra 8 to 15 lbs. before spring. Wanna bet?
LEO (7.22-8.21) Kings: Sunday’s Full Moon square signals a/your day off. Your reputation is in the process of suffering, and there’s really nothing you can do about it ’til the bearer of the bad news and the teller of tales bails and starts to lobby for a new hobby. I’d suggest that you gobble all day and meditate as you vegetate before the (TV) “Church of the NFL,” and let all “them dirty, rotten liars” rot in hell. Queens: Cook for the schnook and pretend you’re interested.
VIRGO (8.22-9.21) Wear red to get ahead and green to remain serene, Dean. Mars resides in Virgo ’til December 7th. Watch out for too mu(n)ch hot food, a rude dude, and an(y) opportunity leading to a fight, Dwight! In addition, it’s time to winterize your ride, Clyde.
LIBRA (9.22-10.21) With your ruler Venus in Capricorn ’til March, we’ll have plenty of time (ruled by $aturn, the ruler of Capricorn) to discu$$ whether it’$ your money or your love that you’re thinking of. And $peaking of… The Full Moon on $unday i$ in your theoretical 8th Hou$e of other people’$ money, in oppo$ition to the $un, $aturn and a recently-gone-direct Mercury in your 2nd Hou$e of per$onal finance. Any clue$?
