In general and on a mundane level, events are likely to happen around November 1-2, 9, 16, 22-23 and/or 29.

During this month of November, the following planetary configurations will affect some birthdays in particular:
  • If you are born around February 7, March 24, May 9, June 25, August 11, September 26-27, November 11 or December December 25 you may withdraw or "disappear" from your environment.

    Some of you may show more interest in metaphysical topics, others may need more mental and/or emotional relief through certain substances (alcohol or drugs).

    At times, we have found this station to indicate water-related issues as well.

  • If you are born around January 2, February 15, April 1, May 17, July 3, August 19, October 5 or November 19 you are facing a milestone or major powerful turning point in your life.
Generally speaking, November 12 is a "less lucky" day.

Try not to initiate any major projects on such a dark, unfortunate, chaotic and empty day (no proposals, no marriages, no changes of residence,...) because things may not go as planned or wished.

Venus enters Sagittarius around November 1, suggesting a nice surprise coming from "abroad" (another country).

Perhaps you get a parcel or card or some other enjoyable good.

Romantic moments are spent best with a foreigner or someone from another social class.

Love affairs and a fun time may be experienced while traveling as well.

Around November 5, Mars at 20° Libra squares Pluto at 20° Capricorn.

This forceful waning square suggests feeling the victim of higher forces.

The atmosphere is not only explosive and harsh but also turbulent and violent.

Following astrometeorology, this aspect often coincides with severe storm and/or natural (earth-related) disasters (earthquakes, earth-slides,...).

There is lots of work at hand.

If you are born around January 13, February 26, April 12, May 29, July 15, August 31, October 16, November 30, there can be love at first sight and unexpected enjoyable encounters around November 7-8.

However, for some of you, there can be disagreements, disputes, and even inappropriate behavior because of differences that get out of hand.

Around November 8, there are clouds in the sky.

Between November 10-29, the mean Lunar North Node is at 10° Cancer, the degree area of the July 2 Solar Eclipse, denoting the Solar Eclipse will now be triggered.

We recommend you re-read our July forecast to find out what this may indicate.

Anyway, the 2nd half of November will be most eventful.

The Sun and Mercury conjoin at 18° Scorpio around November 11.

Actually, Mercury now crosses the face of the Sun, which is a highly rare event that only happens 13 times each century.

It's unclear whether this astronomical event has any astrological signification at all.

On a personal level, the Sun-Mercury conjunction suggests a message, a proposal, an offer of some kind.

On a more mundane level, this combo indicates, among others, cancelling or leaving meetings, not being able to think properly or in a structured way, damage to property (buildings), to change/leave the place or residence and/or to be evacuated.

Around November 12, there is optimism and some fulfilling or rewarding experiences.

It's a good day to date, be creative or just be happy.

Around November 14, Venus at 15° Sagittarius squares Neptune at 15° Pisces.

Beware of (food) poisoning, hang-overs or the result of chemical reactions to certain substances in the body (allergies).

You may feel intoxicated.

In matters of love, this waning aspect points to unrequited love, platonic love and/or love illusions and ideals.

There are unfulfilled longings.

Between November 15 and 17, there are clouds in the sky.

Mars enters intense Scorpio around November 19, suggesting an explosive increase of abuse cases (as long as Mars resides in Scorpio).

Expect secret activities and actions that will go to the bottom of things, often revealing experiences with a degree of emotional depth.

Mars in Scorpio represents (secret) investigations and prosecutions.

Around November 20, Mercury stations at 11° Scorpio and turns backward.

Anytime Mercury stations and regresses, Geminis and Virgos (as well as Gemini and Virgo Ascendants) will feel the station most.

There can be minor upsets or health issues and things don't go as wished for.

Now is not the time to take important decisions and it's best to just keep a low profile around the station.

The Sun enters Sagittarius around November 22.

There is relief of tension and some fortunate breaks.

In some instances childbirth may be noticed as well as other events that bring a lucky mood.

Around November 24, Venus and Jupiter conjoin at 28° Sagittarius while Mars at 3° Scorpio opposes Uranus at 3° Taurus.

Beware of (food) poisoning, allergies and over-indulgence.

There are social gatherings that get an unexpected outcome/twist or that will bring unforeseen experiences.

Stay responsible and don't be too gullible.

Betrayal, in whatever way, may be in the air as well as the resulting disappointment.

On a mundane level, this can be a stormy period full of sudden disruptions.

Around the November 26 New Moon, Venus enters sobering and formal Capricorn.

Love needs something tangible and chances are you may find love with someone with a big age difference.

Monetary concerns prevail now too though and love is often lived at a distance or in a detached way.

Neptune stations at 15° Pisces and turns direct again around November 27.

Stationing Neptune in its own sign but at 15°, a so-called critical degree, emphasizes (heavy) rainfall and/or water-related issues resulting in floods, inundations etc. here and there.

You won't be able to do a lot about any situation now because you may feel overwhelmed and "paralyzed."

Stationing Neptune marks a period of increased deceptions and illusions, so try to take a sobering look at what happens.

Around November 29-30, there are clouds in the sky.

What's New on Our Web Site?

On all our celebrity pages, we added a script in the right navigation bar by Astrodienst from Switzerland with the daily birthdays of 20 celebrities.

Lots of website maintenance is still ongoing to cope with another update of the Google search engine algorithm on the one hand and the latest Firefox browser version on the other hand.

Regularly, algorithms used in search engines are updated in whatever way for whatever reason and late September/early October Google rolled out one of their algorithm changes.

As usual, this resulted in massive fluctuations in the ranking of websites with some websites even being dropped.

Some IT experts guess the current update might have to do with linking to other websites and so-called "reliability" of websites.

It's no secret that all alternative websites (alternative health, food/diet, metaphysics, etc.) experience a hard time since April 2017 because the search engines try to drop all "pseudo-scientific" and alternative websites from their search results or give them lower rankings.

If you search for alternative or natural health remedies, metaphysical topics etc., the first search results are almost always about the debunking or ridiculing of these topics/subjects.

Before April 2017, this was not the case at all.

This way, search engines are manipulating and steering knowledge, information, insight and choices of people in a very political, biased and undifferentiated way.

Interestingly, we are also subscribed to Google's news platform for astrology-related news topics and instead of the usual 20 or so new astrology articles they list weekly, we lately only get some 10 new articles weekly and most of them about how wrong astrology actually is and how foolish one can be by "believing" in this stuff.

Needless to say that most of these articles mix up astrology with sun horoscopes, tropical with sidereal zodiacs, etc., leaving people misinformed and misled, to say the least.

The latest Firefox browser version now blocks all ads by default (trackers and cookies alike), resulting in at times unpleasing looking and messy web pages when browsing the internet.

Our web pages feature some Google ads, some banners and associate Amazon links featuring recommended astrology books.

By default, Firefox now blocks all these links.

Though you can allow these links, ads and banners on a web page or website by clicking the "shield icon" left from the URL in the address bar and turn off the blocking of trackers and cookies specifically for the website you are visiting, we chose to remove the book cover links from Amazon on our website.

Instead, we replaced them with a simple not clickable pic of the book cover.

Also, we updated numerous pages and removed most of the affiliate pics and banners.

For now, we leave the occasional Google ads on our web pages and we'll see if other browsers (like Google Chrome) will follow the same path and block ads and banners.

From a customer's perspective this would be a great thing anyway, but from a business perspective, that's another story, entirely.

If other browsers will follow Firefox, we will remove all banners and try to find something else to bring "some color" to our web pages that may be boring for some ;)

Also, Google already warned webmasters that in December 2019/January 2020 the Google Chrome browser will block all web pages with mixed content (i.e. https and http links on the same page).

Google wants https websites to consistently link to more secure https websites.

Because of all these ongoing changes and evolution on the internet, we are reviewing all our web pages to make sure they fit the latest conditions.

Statistics of 22 Lifelong Marriages

We analyzed 22 marriage dates of couples that died in the same period (within "hours" of each other) after a lifelong marriage.

Most marriages lasted between 50-80 years and ended "till death do us part."

Scientists often call this the broken heart syndrome because death of a spouse is recognised as one of the most stressful things that can happen to a person.

What interests us here is the marriage dates because from an astrological point of view, the marriage date is the formal "birth" moment (creation) of a couple sharing their lives as one entity and that grows, develops and progresses from there, like a physical person.

Though 22 charts/dates is barely enough to build a theory, there are some statistically significant astrological conditions that should already be mentioned:
  • Mercury was retrograde in 7 out of the 22 cases (chi square 10.5).

    This may come as a surprise as retrograde Mercury has some bad reputation, but the retrograde position of any planet as such is not as dire as is thought.

    Stationary positions are.

    Also, it's important to find out in what phase the retrograde planet is, as we have found when researching the Venus phases pertaining to marriages and divorces.

  • the Sun could be found between 27°-29°59' in a sign in 6 cases (chi square 12.1).

    This too may be a surprising outcome as one would expect the late degrees to represent endings but these degrees seem to also denote something "lasting."

  • Venus and Mars are in disjunct signs (in signs that are either 30° or 150° apart) (chi square 8.0)
  • The dispositor of Venus is in Libra (chi square 12.0)
  • Mercury and Uranus are in a waxing phase (60°-90° apart) in 17 cases (chi square 9.0)
  • Mars is in Cancer (in 5 cases) (chi square 12.0)
  • In the 45° dial, the following midpoints were statistically significant:
    • Venus/Pallas = Sun (chi square 25.6)
    • Pluto/Ceres = Lunar Nodes (chi square 68.3)
    • Sun/Mars = Juno (chi square 52.9)
    • Mars/Pallas = Lunar Nodes (chi square 25.0)
    • Venus/Ceres = Lunar Nodes (chi square 40.0)
  • In the 30° dial, the following midpoint was statisically significant: Mercury/Juno = Lunar Node (chi square 81.0)
