A Note from Susan Miller
Here we are in November already! Thanks goodness, even allowing with Mercury retrograde until November 20, this will be a far better month than October turned out to be.
I have been working on many surprises for you. I just debuted my work on Slowdance.com, which is a site and shop run by the elegant Jung Lee. She carries the most beautiful important china, silver, crystal, and more. Vogue loves Jung and raves about her sense of style.
Your Horoscope by Susan Miller
You will find November to be less strenuous than October, and for that, you will likely be grateful. October acted as a mid-point month between the eclipses in July and those coming at the end of December and January 2020. A mid-point is an equidistant point, and there can be the enormous pressure focused on you in a mid-point month, but only if the degree of the mid-point triggers a planet in your chart. No matter—if it did, you already found that out last month. In other words, if October was nightmarish, that was the reason.
Mercury was preparing to retrograde last month, on October 31, and that did not help. You started to feel hints of a slowdown weeks earlier—as early as October 8—and you will continue to feel Mercury retrograde until November 20. Indeed, Mercury didn’t make October any easier to navigate. This time, Mercury is retrograding in Scorpio—directly opposite Uranus, the planet of all things unexpected—and that will make this retrograde a bit harder to navigate. This particular trend of Mercury could try your patience.
Uranus rules electronics and the moving parts in machines, and Uranus will oppose Mercury retrograde. This suggests, as one example, that you could have epic computer problems or car trouble this month, especially in the first days of November. You may want to back up all your data and system preferences now just in case you do have problems. You may have already faced such matters last month. Mercury retrograde will show you when the gears in your machines are wearing out or when the software is not behaving properly. You could find you are toting items to the repair shop much more frequently and also returning purchases that are not the right model or size. You can travel—I do all the time—but don’t buy electronics or sign contracts if you can avoid doing so.
Your schedule will open up when delays and postponements arise, and that will lead to a slightly less hectic time in November, for on those days that suddenly have nothing scheduled, you can follow your own agenda.
