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
Lately, there’s been an enormous focus on your written and spoken words, so you must have been working hard at your computer getting your work ready to be shown. Late last month you had a new moon in your ninth house of foreign and domestic distant travel, so you may have been on a trip too, and remarkably, it looks as though you may be ready to take another trip very soon.
This month will be an easier month to navigate than October turned out to be. Last month put a strain on everyone. October fell in the middle of the five-and-a-half-month period that spanned the eclipses of July 2 and July 16 and the next eclipses due, December 25, 2019, and January 10, 2020. Astrologers call this concept a mid-point month, and midpoints receive enormous energy in a 90-degree angle from the past eclipses and the coming ones. (Astrologers view time differently than other people—we plot time, even time that has not yet occurred, on bell curves.) That’s a technical way of saying October exerted a lot of pressure on just about everyone.
Also last month, Mercury started to slow down two weeks prior to its official retrograde date, October 31, and will remain that way until November 20. You began to see delays crop up, miscommunications, and trouble with electronics and software. This time, Mercury will retrograde in your distant travel sector, so when you pack, keep your AC cord with you at the airport so you can work or enjoy your computer if your flight gets delayed and still not use up all the battery strength before you eventually board. Even with Mercury retrograde, I promise you will like November. You might want to back up the data of your computer, however, in case you have problems with electronics. Don’t buy any new machines, including a car, smart phone, refrigerator, computer, or any other product with moving parts or chips inside until the end of the month.
This year we are lucky because for many years, Mercury was consistently retrograde during December’s holiday shopping period. I had no choice but to advise you to buy gift cards rather than chance getting the wrong gift (unless you had a small child on your holiday gift list, in which case I suggested you let his mother shop for you, and then you reimburse her. You could then wrap the gifts for the Lilliputians—from the land of Lilliput.) This year you have an open road to shop to your heart’s content, just in time to enjoy Black Friday (November 29) and Cyber Monday (December 2), dates that retailers offer fabulous prices for many holiday items. This year you can take full advantage, and that is a huge change over the past several years.
