A Note from Susan Miller — November 2020

Dear Reader,

November is a very big month, and I wanted you to have all the information you need to take full advantage of the changing aspects. I went back to October to put your life in context and to show you specifically how different—and better—November would be for you.

November starts off tense (depending on your sign and exact birthday), but it gets special by the gorgeous new moon of November 14. Also, Mercury and his big brother Mars will both go direct after endless weeks of being in retrograde, so you will see the pace of life pick up in a way that you will find gratifying. There will be opportunities to take advantage of at long last, and you will have two weeks to get ready. On top of all of this, the eclipses are back—these are gentle and sweet and will push you forward into a new realm. The first one is due November 30 in Gemini, and the second one, a dazzler, is due next month, December 14, in Sagittarius as a new moon solar eclipse.

This month, my manuscript is long, 45,000 words for all 12 signs. I have no idea how I wrote it, as I cannot see full words, only half words. My doctor told me that my eyes are not working together at all and have not been for four years, ever since my first eye operation. This year, about three months ago, things got much worse. I am now writing in bold type at 150 to 200%. The words look like the paper they are on had gone through the wash, for the words are so pale. I have to hold up a magnifying glass to the screen to see what I have written.

I would have had my operation sooner, but I had to wait for Mercury and Mars to be finished retrograding. Still, I couldn’t wait too long—my situation reached a four-alarm fire level. The right eye is ruled by the Sun for a woman, so that brilliant star had to be well aspected. You can never get all the planets you need in perfect places, but you can come close. I chose the best day I could find within the parameters I found myself. This is urgent, and my doctor only does my procedure on Fridays, so I chose November 13. Yes, that’s Friday the thirteenth, but I’m not superstitious, and that Friday the thirteenth has no astrological meaning.

This procedure cannot come fast enough! As it is, I waited through September and October and now half of November.

This is a writer’s nightmare, and there were times I just wanted to give up writing my report for you. Yet I could not do that! I have four editors, including my editor-in-chief Edward Rubinstein, and bless them, my team of editors helped me through this difficult period.

My last operation on my left eye on August 31 was a success, but that eye is so damaged by the genetic condition I was born with that it did not help me too much, and that was as I expected. My doctors have higher hopes for the one I am having done on November 13. After that, we will schedule one more procedure before the year is out.

Just when I didn’t need anything else to happen in my life, as I took a spoonful of soft mashed potatoes I felt a rock! Actually, it was a crown that fell off one of my molars. My dentist says I have decay underneath, which is why it fell off. I don’t have that many crowns, and he told me it was put in 15 years ago. He said we have to clean out the tooth, with the drill, a process that takes 90 minutes. He thinks I will need a root canal, and of course, a new crown, too. Oh, Mercury retrograde! I am scheduled for the first work on the molar on November 12, and then my eye, November 13. I want to get through all this!

Thank you for staying with me, dear reader. I am always caught between giving you less but on time, or giving you more and taking the time it takes to shape my manuscript for you in a way you can easily understand it. Next month will be a big month, too.

I want to know how you are doing under these aspects, so don’t be shy to post in early December to sum up November. My name on Twitter and Instagram is the same, @Astrologyzone. On Facebook I am Susan Miller’s Astrology Zone.

If you didn’t know, I placed a new app on the market, in Apple’s App Store and Google Play, on August 28—it’s there and ready for you to download. I have a free version, which you should take advantage of, for apps are a far more secure way to read my work on your cell phone (which I know you love to do). It’s also an easier way to navigate. My uncut monthly forecast is on the app, and you get short daily forecasts on the free version, too.

If you want more detailed content, my premium version of my app, with longer daily horoscopes, my essays, and other features, you can make an in-app purchase of $4.99 a month. You can opt out of the auto-renewal as soon as the subscription length is over (monthly, 3-months, or annual options). We can help you if you need us show you how to end your subscription, (Write [email protected]).

My app is called “Daily Horoscope Astrology Zone + More by Susan Miller,” but to find it, simply search Susan Miller. Others are using my name without my permission, so be sure the app reads as I have just typed it and has the word Astrology Zone in the title. They can’t use that name! (On Google Play, it’s just “Daily Horoscope Astrology Zone by Susan Miller.”)

When you get the app, be sure to put in settings to allow notifications. We will send a push notification to your phone to let you know when I post my monthly forecast so that you need not keep checking. Now that I am with a new app team, Invemo, from Santa Monica, California, we will start to add several new features as the weeks progress.

My difficulty seeing has delayed my calendar a little, but it’s almost done. Izak Zenou, the French artist (who lives in the US) who did all the beautiful art for my annual Year Ahead astrological wall calendars in recent years is now back for 2021. Yay! I just approved his pen-and-ink suggestions before doing the finished art in beautiful color. I love Izak’s work—his feel for fashion is sublime. Izak just finished all the art for the Estée Lauder holiday gift sets that you will see in the department stores and online.

You might want to follow Izak on Instagram, @izakzenou_illustrationist

For now, enjoy November, dear reader. You will have lots to tell me by the time this month is over!

Sincerely,

Susan Miller
