Dear Friends,
 
Nov 9 2007 New Moon-Comet Holmes Update
& the Upcoming Nov 24 Full Moon-Comet conjunction

 
The Lunar Month of
Nov 9, 2007 - Dec 9,2007

 
Occurring on the New Moon of Nov 9, 2007
Comet's Tail breaks away.
"COMET TAIL: Exploding Comet 17P/Holmes continues to amaze onlookers. On Nov. 8th and 9th part of the comet's blue tail broke away in view of many backyard telescopes. Visit http://spaceweather.com (Nov 10 archive) to see photos of the "disconnection event" and speculation about what might have caused it." (Quote from SpaceWeather.com)

 
The Full Moon of the Nov 9 Lunar Cycle conjoins Comet Holmes and Mirphak in Perseus
An excerpt from the Nov 9, 2007 Lunar Planner:
"Comet Holmes' dramatic eruption in Perseus occurred in the last lunar cycle (Oct 07). The Full Moon of Nov 24, 2007 significantly conjoins Holmes while retrograde Holmes and Mirphak conjoin in both ecliptical longitude and latitude. What a significator! Comet Holmes illumines and accentuates this Mirphak Full Moon theme; and perhaps our need to rise-to the occasion as the hero Perseus does in his initiatory journey to claim the success and achievement that Mirphak embodies. The realizations this Full Moon offers, whatever they may be for each of us, may be of extreme significance."

Including the very significant 13-year Jupiter-Pluto Synodic Cycle
"The Opening"
"The theme of this new 13-year cycle in early sidereal Sag is

Hello Star*Fans!

                 NEW MOON

  Late Friday afternoon the New Moon occurs at 17 Scorpio 10. It will be exact at 6:02 PM EST, 5:02 PM CST, 4:02 PM MST and 3:02 PM PST.

   Scorpio represents the heart of autumn, when the life force is retreating into the root systems, and the animals have burrowed into their underground chambers, having prepared their stores to see the winter through. It is a time of contemplation. It is a time of going within. There are no major fixed stars within a degree of this position this month.

 
New Moon  11 09 07

 
                          CHART OF THE NEW MOON

 
   The principle aspects occurring at the time of the New Moon this month are a hidden parallel between the Sun and Pluto, and the New Moon approaching square to Neptune. Strong emotional forces are being deeply stirred.

 
   With Neptune involved, our subliminal currents are being activated. Don't be surprised if there are sudden shifts of mood, with those around us suddenly venting strong feelings. Anger, rage and jealousy are possibilities. Not having enough money to pay the bills, or having a bill which really ticks you off to have to pay can also be some of the issue. The reaction to situations like this is often that the individual launching these explosive salvos know what and why they are doing this, but such is rarely the case. The subconscious is just that, below the level of consciousness. They usually DON'T know what the source of these reactions trigger from and are as surprised about it as you are. The high side to this combination can be the history, wound, or source of these sentiments are closer to the surface, and this can be an excellent opportunity to help them get to the bottom of these problem, to help them work through and understand that what they are really reacting to took place a long time ago. The conditions may feel similar, but learning to separate then from now can help to make the issue more manageable. Usually with Neptune, it is a sense of loss and (with Scorpio) fear that are at root here. IF they don't take your head off in the attempt, we can gain a better understanding of the deeper forces that move us, unconsciously shaping our world and our reactions to it. On the other hand, the more powerfully they react can be an indication of how close you are to the mark. It is a defensive, knee-jerk response which is seeking to protect itself. Scorpio deals with sexual, financial and control issues. We can feel as though circumstances are forcing us to pick a course of action we are not interesting in pursuing (he said diplomatically). Passion is running very high, and sexuality can be used to help access and vent some of these forces, but it is also very easy for these same themes to be turned such that they perceive you to be the source of the problem rather than its solution. This is YOUR fault (people instinctively look outside of themselves for the answer) and YOU are the one backing them into this corner.
 
   You are the devil incarnate.
 
   Shame on you.
 
   On the flip side this can be an energy that makes for major changes and can clean, repair or renovate major projects. Turn it over, throw it out.

 
 
                          TRAVEL

   I am currently in the middle of a New England run and am back to attend to a few of the folks that wanted charts from last summer, when family affairs (Mom's passing) kept me busy. I will be leaving on November 27th for a talk in San Francisco on the 29th. While I have already made a run down through Cape Cod and Nantucket, there is enough chart interest there for another run, and I haven't even made it out to Western Mass (very unusual for me, since that was home for 30 years), Rhode Island or Central Connecticut yet. This week I just visited Yonkers, and am currently in Southold, on eastern Long Island.

   Please let me know soon if you are in any of these areas and would like a reading. Thanksgiving is right around the corner and will clip some of the few remaining days we have left. If you are one of the dozen or so people who have already requested a reading, I will be contacting you in the next couple of days to outline when I will be where.

   Thank you for you interest and responses. I must say it gets cold in New England in the winter, something we don't see much of out in Santa Cruz.

      Blessings to all-

         ~Don

Astrology of November 2007
by Henry Seltzer is available online.

A month of changes in water signs with Mars turning retrograde and Uranus also changing direction, later in the month, and the New Moon triggering it all off... The November 9th Scorpio New Moon also squares Neptune, numinous harbinger of events and feelings beyond this physical plane, so that confusion and even outright deception might come up for us as well over the course of this monthly cycle...

NeptuneNeptune in Review

Neptune is the eighth planet from the Sun in the Solar System, and is seventeen times the mass of Earth. While Neptune boasts the strongest winds of any other planet in the solar system, it also has an intense bright blue appearance that is attributed to trace amounts of methane in its atmosphere. The planet is named after the Greek God of the Sea Poseidon, and its astrological symbol is a stylized version of Poseidon's mighty three pronged trident.

Both God of the sea and the ruler of Pisces, Neptune finds exaltation in Cancer. Neptune, associated with universal love, is said to be the higher octave of Venus, which rules individual love. Neptune represents the universal ocean of oneness with all beings. Therefore, Neptune is highly compassionate, idealistic, and imaginative. It is considered a planet of inspiration, dreams, and psychic receptivity. Neptune rules spirituality, and all things subtle. The more negative manifestations of Neptune include deception, trickery, deceit, guilt, and addiction associated with drugs, alcohol, or even media and fantasy. Its position in a person's chart would indicate where there may be confusion or illusion, and also great creativity in the poetic and musical fields.

New Moon in Scorpio
Friday, November 9, 3:03 pm PST, Thursday, 6:03 pm EST


The intense emotional force of the Scorpio New Moon usually drives feelings deep inside to scoop up pieces of the past and re-examine them in light of current circumstances. This time, supportive trines to the Sun-Moon conjunction from active Mars and revolutionary Uranus provide powerful motivation for letting go of old wounds, uncovering hidden resources, and applying them in new and different ways. Freedom from chronic emotional pain comes by following intuition and moving forward, rather than looking back and being mired in disappointment. Mystical Neptune's square adds a spiritual dimension that increases the capacity to forgive yourself and others.


Mercury in Scorpio
Sunday, November 11, 12:41 am PST, 3:41 am EST


Perspectives shift below the surface to uncover secrets and reveal the psychological influences that affect behavior. The communication planet in this passionate sign increases the force of words, which can make people reluctant to express themselves openly. Probing minds are better received when they combine tenderness with curiosity and intimacy grows when confidentiality is assured. Research is rewarded with nuggets of gold for those with patience and persistence.

Mars Retrograde
Thursday, November 15

The assertive warrior planet, whose fire is already tempered in watery Cancer, turns even milder with this backward shift. Launching new projects may be more complicated until Mars goes direct on January 30. Old frustrations, especially with family, may flare up as we revisit key moments of personal history. A general mood of crankiness is possible, so managing fear and insecurity is necessary for maintaining civility. Tie up loose ends and do maintenance work to clear the decks for the next big adventure.

Sun in Sagittarius
Thursday, November 22, 8:40 am PST, 11:50 am EST


The joy of this thankful season aligns with the Sun in enthusiastic Sagittarius. Big ideas, thoughts of adventure, and high expectations set targets that will stretch our boundaries. Everyone gets to be a philosopher with opinions about what life means. Expanding mental and physical horizons are gifts of this outgoing sign, yet judgment of others should not be given generously, but served in tiny, tactful portions.

Uranus Direct
Saturday, November 24


The planet of revolution's direct turn normally frees up forces of change. While there may be some breakthroughs happening, Mars' retrograde can dampen the fuse and keep most bombs from exploding. Frustration with authority figures or restrictions of any kind produces inner pressure to react, yet ill-planned acts of rebellion are likely to fail. Respect your right to be free by carefully thinking through the steps to achieve it.

Full Moon in Gemini
Saturday, November 24, 6:29 am PST, 9:29 am EST

This normally bright and breezy Sun-Moon opposition sprinkles ideas and information across a wide landscape. Now stern Saturn squares both luminaries to diminish the potential for brilliance. Exciting conversations and concepts can be sidetracked by mundane responsibilities and practical limitations. When it comes to ideas, only the strong survive because there's less tolerance for random theories. Avoid an information overload or talking when listening is really the key to connecting.

Mercury in Sagittarius
Saturday, December 1, 4:21 am PST, 7:21 am EST


The planet of data and details can sometimes get lost in Sagittarius' vast philosophical spaces. Facts turn fuzzy as salesmanship overcome scholarship. An upbeat attitude is a plus here as it's possible to overlook present problems to see future positives. Yet if we focus too much on seeing the whole forest, we might run into a tree.

Venus in Scorpio
Wednesday, December 5, 5:29 am PST, 8:29 am EST


Magnetic Venus entering emotionally powerful Scorpio evokes desire, passion and jealousy. A tendency to be dissatisfied in relationships can feed the hunger for more. Intimacy advances when we are willing to invest deeply in ourselves and our partners rather than merely skimming the surface. Trust is hard-earned, so respect the privacy of others. Silence is sexier than gossip for those interested in getting to the heart of love.

The New Moon in Scorpio offers a seed of desire that originates from our very depths. What we want can also be what frightens us, so don't back away at the first sign of danger. This is about taking risks, but not necessarily physical or social ones. The challenge is to look beyond pride and politeness to tap into the very essence of your needs. What you find might be something you cannot pursue, but simply exploring is an awakening that can empower you to seek other forms of fulfillment.

Have a great month!

TIPS ON PUMPING GAS -- THIS IS GREAT INFO!!!

 

I don't know what you guys are paying for gasoline. Here in
California we are also paying higher, up to $3.50 per gallon.  But my
line of work is in petroleum for about 31 years now, so here are some
tricks to get more of your money's worth for every gallon.
 
Here at the Kinder Morgan Pipeline where I work in San Jose, CA
we deliver about 4 million gallons in a 24-hour period thru the
pipeline. One day is diesel the next day is jet fuel, and gasoline,
regular and premium grades. We have 34-storage tanks here with a
total capacity of 16,800,000 gallons.
 
Only buy or fill up your car or truck in the early morning when
the ground temperature is St ill cold. Remember that all service
stations have their storage tanks buried below ground. The colder the
ground the more dense the gasoline, when it gets warmer gasoline
expands, so buying in the
afternoon or in the evening....your gallon is not exactly a
gallon. In the petroleum business, the specific gravity and the
temperature of the gasoline, diesel and jet fuel, ethanol and other
petroleum products plays an important role.  A 1-degree rise in
temperature is a big deal for this business.  But
the service stations do not have temperature compensation at
the pumps.
 
When you're filling up do not squeeze the trigger of the nozzle
to a fast mode. If you look you will see that the trigger has three
(3) stages: low, middle, and high. In slow mode you should be pumping
on low speed, thereby min imizing the vapors that are created while
you are pumping. All hoses at
the pump have a vapor return. If you are pumping on the fast
rate, some of the liquid that goes to your tank becomes vapor. Those
vapors are being sucked up and back into the underground storage tank
so you're getting less worth for your money.
 
One of the most important tips is to fill up when your gas tank
is HALF FULL or HALF EMPTY. The reason for this is, the more gas you
have in your tank the less air occupying its empty space. Gasoline
evaporates faster than you can imagine. Gasoline storage tanks have
an internal floating roof. This roof serves as zero clearance between
the gas and the atmosphere, so it minimizes the evaporation. Unlike
service stations, here where I work, every truck that we load is
temperature compensated so that every gallon is actually the exact
amount.
 
Another reminder. If there is a gasoline truck pumping into the
storage tanks when you stop to buy gas, DO NOT fill up--most likely
the gasoline is being stirred up as the gas is being delivered, and
you might pick up some of the dirt that normally settles on the
bottom.
Hope this will help you get the most value for your money.

 




 

Marijuana Policy Project Alert    November 7, 2007 
   
Marijuana good for teens?
 

Teenagers who smoke marijuana but not cigarettes are more likely to get good grades, play sports, and live with both parents than those who use both marijuana and tobacco, according to a new Swiss study.

The researchers concluded, "Cannabis-only adolescents show better functioning than those who also use tobacco."

Of course, this study isn't generally something you'll see on CNN or other U.S. mainstream media outlets, unlike U.S. government-funded studies that purport to show marijuana's harmful effects, which always seem to get extensive news coverage.

That said, Fox News has an online story here, which you should "Digg" to make it one of the biggest news stories of the day. If you have a moment right now, please do so without delay.

Other than the Fox News story, only Reason Magazine's blog and United Press International have covered the study — which was just published in the November issue of Archives of Pediatrics & Adolescent Medicine. You can view the abstract of the study (and purchase the full study) here.
 

The study compared teens who (1) smoked both marijuana and cigarettes, (2) smoked marijuana but not cigarettes, and (3) used neither.

The study found that teens who smoke marijuana were more likely to have a good relationship with their friends than teens who didn't use marijuana or cigarettes.

Compared to those who smoked cigarettes in addition to marijuana, the marijuana-using group was also less likely to have been drunk in the past 30 days, less likely to have used marijuana before the age of 15, less likely to have smoked marijuana more than once or twice during the previous 30 days, and less likely to use other illegal drugs.

Other differences between marijuana-only users and abstainers were pretty minor. For instance, the marijuana-only group was more likely to skip class but still had the same level of good grades as the abstainers. And the marijuana-only group wasn't any more likely than the abstainers to be depressed.

To be clear, MPP doesn't recommend that teens use marijuana, but we do think that public policies that put teens and adults in prison for using marijuana are misguided and therefore should be reformed.

Thank you for your support.

Sincerely,

Rob Kampia
Executive Director
Marijuana Policy Project

Welcome to NCGR's new E-Calendar Around the World with NCGR!

Starting this week, our biweekly calendar of events will have a new mission - to serve as a "one-stop" place to find events of astrological interest, regardless of where you live or travel on our planet.

To fulfill this purpose, Around the World with NCGR will be distributed free to anyone interested in astrology. The first edition of the revamped E-Calendar will more than double in circulation, from nearly 2,000 to close to well over 4,000 recipients.

 

Feel free to forward Around the World with NCGR to anyone you think will be interested

in receiving it. A link to update your information is located at the end of this

page.

We would love to hear about events going on in your country and your community.

Around the World with NCGR accepts all announcements for events that are (1) focused

on astrology and (2) sponsored by a non-profit organization. However, the publication

is not an advertising venue; listings of astrology classes or lectures by individuals

will not be accepted, nor will psychics, feng shui experts, palm or tarot readers,

etc., fine as those practices are. Submissions to Around the World with NCGR should

be sent to execsec@geocosmic.org [mailto:execsec@geocosmic.org] -- preferably as

a Word document.

We hope you will enjoy Around the World with NCGR. We will be adding new features

in the coming months, all of an astrological nature. We also look forward to your

feedback!

NCGR's New RSS News Feed

NCGR's home page at www.geocosmic.org [http://rs6.net/tn.jsp?e=001enFevBlP6OXCTi1JmztuF_zKK2p14MUgcKp_yeROe7CtR9Npfyq6NDFnkWwBw5TpBWLRhlD-E0QGtphT9KyoOtFcz3B4Rn7jHEmJkkhdFJuq5GimRY8y3g==]

now features an "RSS news feed" that provides easy links to current NCGR news found

at various places on the site. During our testing period for the news feed, we have

been including stories about astrology from around the Internet. For example, in

the last week our feed linked to stories about:

- A new young-adult novel that is the first of a series of 12 with astrological

themes.

- Striking body paintings illustrating the signs

- A tradition at Iowa State University that students should not step on a zodiac

design in the Memorial Union on the day of a test.

These have been interspersed among news items about the NCGR candidates

for the upcoming election, our MP3 sales, and certification, among others.

The news feed headlines along with descriptive blurbs appear under "NCGR News and

Announcements" in the lower right corner of the main page, where you can read a

brief description of the stories and click on the headlines in order to get to the

stories themselves. Those who already use feeds like this already know that they

can also be read without even going to geocosmic.org, as most newer browsers (Internet

Explorer 7 and current versions of Firefox are examples) and even some email programs

already have built-in facilities to collect the feed and show it in a newsreader.

Browsers that automatically handle news feeds will show the RSS symbol (icon in

upper right of this article) in the address bar of the browser. Clicking on the

icon will take you to page that allows you to "subscribe" so you can read it within

your browser.

Even though the RSS feed itself is more or less standard, there are so many ways

to access it in a newsreader or browser that we won't try to go into the details

here. For those not yet familiar with RSS news feeds, the feed content itself is

right there on our home page. Just click on the headlines to go to the full stories.

In keeping with our successful NCGR Conference theme of Astrological Tools for the

21st Century, we are pleased to present two workshops at UAC in Denver:

Wednesday, May 14, 2008. 9:30 am - 5 pm(90 minute lunch break).

 

Astrology as a Profession: Building a Successful Practice.

Whether you are just beginning your professional practice or already have one underway,

this workshop is for you. Here's everything you need to know about starting right

for success as well as improving your practice and adding to your bottom line. Learn

how to promote yourself, your image, basic bookkeeping, how to handle difficult

clients and so much more. This workshop even includes techniques for maintaining

your schedule and your sanity (time-management and goal-setting) to how to incorporate

your business and whether or not that's a good choice for you. Let successful astro-entrepreneurs

share with you their secrets for success and fulfillment in your own practice. Presenters

include Madalyn Hillis-Dineen, Joyce Levine and Grace Morris. Fee: $125.

 

Thursday, May 15, 2008. 2:30-5:30 PM.

Information Technology for Astrologers: This basic class will help you to learn

the ins and outs of Windows Explorer and introduce you to the MS Office Suite of

Word, Excel, Power Point and Publisher. You'll also learn how to send and receive

email attachments and how to use your computer to record your consultations as MP3s.

Fee: $30

 

Or

 

Using Technology to Grow Your Astrological Practice: The home computers of the early

1980's were a boon to professional astrologers by both allowing them to save time

in calculating their charts and experimenting with new techniques and calculations.

Now, the tools of 21st century technology are just as significant for the professional

who wants to reach a broader market. This workshop starts with teaching you how

to record your consultations but also includes how to teach a class on line, design

a web page, and produce your own podcasts. Fee: $30

Austin CHAPTER

 

November 2007 Workshop

"Introduction to Horary Astrology"

by Maria Mateus

Horary astrology has got to be the "weirdest" but also the most intriguing form

of astrology anyone can learn! It's "weird" because it presupposes not only a belief

that the heavens are mirroring the earth at certain moments in time, but also a

belief that one can have a dialogue with the heavens concerning those moments in

time! In this workshop you'll learn when and how to ask the universe questions

that are important to you and how to read those answers in the astrological chart.

We'll start at the beginning and cover the fundamental techniques and concepts that

make horary astrology magically practical and completely unique. At the end of the

workshop, you too will know how to (among other things): locate a missing pet, find

a lost heirloom, purchase a problem-free house, or find out if your crush is reciprocated!

Maria J. Mateus is a practicing astrologer living in Austin, Texas. She was originally

born in Lisbon, Portugal and has a deep interest in astrological research, history,

languages, and ancient techniques. She graduated with a B.A. in psychology from

the University of Texas and will soon complete a M.A. degree from Kepler College

of Astrological Arts and Sciences. She has been published nationally and abroad

and has lectured at astrological Conferences in the United States. She also serves

as the ASA Director of Education.

Date: Saturday, Nov. 17

Time: 9:30 am-4 pm

Location: Plum Blossom Wellness Center, 1700 S. Lamar, Suite 230

Cost: $65 ASA Members/$85 non-ASA members
