Thanks For The Birthday Wishes!

I ended up staying in and watching Kissing Jessica Stein (one of my all time favorite movies), and pigging out by myself. I woke up with chronic heartburn, but that's the small price for being a fatass. Tomorrow means back to exercising (or at least dieting). I passed out by 11:30pm last night, but was awaken at 12 by my darling sister singing "Happy Birthday" to me. I didn't go back to sleep until about 7am because of a birthday visit from an old friend. I gave myself a haircut this morning and I like how it turned out. Kind of doing the asymmetrical Rhianna thing. I get bored with my hair easily. Plus, I figured since it's my birthday, it's time for a change. I went to work at the museum at 2 and got stationed in my favorite gallery. The current exhibit is called Out of Sequence: Underrepresented Voices in American Comics. It's a really awesome showcase of comics created by America's minorities. Anyway, been bringing in droves of people. Today we had a open forum and I got to meet a few of the artists featured. And all the while I was at work, I got birthday texts and phone calls from the people who matter most to me.

It may sound kind of lame, but I actually did have a pretty splendid birthday.


Just a heads up for the week. I've got two term papers due so I may not post as regularly as usual.

Happy Belated Birthday : )

November Forecast for Scorpios from

It's birthday time, and you're feeling especially positive about life, and with good reason! With Mars still tearing through Scorpio at a rapid, strong orbit, you are in your element and feeling your oats. You've got an aura of authority that is commanding and confident - and sexy, too!

Mars will help you get your way until November 16, so you'll need to get busy during November's first half to catch this lovely energy. Draw up plans, present them, and sit down with clients and other influential people. If ever you were to get an affirmative answer, it will be this month in the first two weeks.

The new moon that appeared on October 28 was a superb one, and one of the friendliest of the year. This new moon was the green light to begin to launch big projects and to meet with others to get support. Rarely have you seen this level of cosmic support! If your birthday falls on October 28 or within five days of this date, you will be doubly fortunate, for your whole year will be filled with lots of news and fresh starts. 2009 won't be any old year, but one you will likely remember for all the things you set in motion.

Your love life has had more twists and turns than a rollercoaster, and although this month may bring more of the same, you also may get a number of truly encouraging signs that finally your love life is due to change and head in the right direction.

Neptune RULES your house of true love and Uranus is currently traveling IN this same sector. This means that both planets have a large bearing on how your love life will proceed. The problem has been that both Neptune and Uranus have been in lethargic retrograde mode for months, moving backward for a very long time.

If you are single and frustrated with your love life, you know why! You probably felt like you were walking through glue. It was hard to see any progress, even if you tried hard to fix things. If you are in an established relationship, you may have gone 'round and 'round on certain issues, but not really ending up where you wanted things to go. You may have felt that your relationship was either stagnating or worse - that there was no hope you'd ever come to any sort of firm agreement on anything. Be of good cheer, dear Scorpio - now you will! Neptune turns direct on November 3 and Uranus turns direct on November 27, so this is all good news for you, and a signal you should try, try, try again.

The full moon, November 13, could bring a joyous moment when an engagement or "coming together" between two souls proves magical. Your ability to communicate what's in your heart will come easily, and those feelings will be tenderly returned. A discussion about future children could also come up or care for a child you have now. If you aren't serious about anyone just yet, you can use the energies of this full moon to form business associations too, with equally fine results.

This full moon will be a very big, important moment in your time line, doubly so if you were born on or within five days of November 13. If this is the time of the month when you were born, you will find that this year brings a culmination of much of what you have been working on. Next year, after this birthday year is done, your life will be filled with many fresh starts, for you will have accomplished so much this year.

When it comes to your career, you will do so well this month you may want to pinch yourself to be sure you aren't dreaming. Watch November 10, for on that day you'll hit a stroke of luck - quite unexpectedly. Watch for a gate to suddenly swing open for you, one that has always been very firmly padlocked shut! This would be a superb day to schedule key meetings, for you'd likely reach accord or get approvals. When you're hot, you're hot, and this day, you are that and more!

You will enter into a high spending period from November 16 onward, but it could be for things you expected to buy - for example, holiday gifts or a tuition payment you know is coming up.

Be careful about all your spending however, because I see a very difficult full moon in your financial house of credit and loans coming up next month on December 12, plus or minus three days. At that time, I feel you will have to write a large check, and it may be quite a bit larger than you ever expected. The way to deal with this is to spread out purchases this month. Of course, holiday gifts would have to be purchased now, but if there is something else you don't absolutely need for yourself, see if you can put off buying it until December.

These days, everyone needs to find ways to make more money. Here's your moment to speak up for a raise or to negotiate for a new job: at the new moon November 27 and two weeks that follow it. That new moon couldn't be better. So while it seems you will have high costs this month, you can find a way to bring in more cash, but you will have to speak up. The new moon of November 27 is your best of the year, so do make an initiation, even if you are a bit hesitant about doing so. The time to get more income is at hand, dear Scorpio.

Jupiter rules your house of earned income, and will be in perfect angle to Saturn in late November, indicating that you CAN find ways to batten down the hatches and find a way to come out of the red and into the black side of the ledger. These two planets will make an exact aspect on November 21, a great day for financial talks and presentations. However, your big moment will come after the new moon, one week later, November 27, because that's what new moons do - they open a path. Speak up at month's end for a better salary and you will be glad you did.

Travel to a nearby location is indicated too this month, and it sure would be fun. See if you can take a short weekend trip over the November 29-30 weekend (even extending your short trip into Monday, December 1). With Venus kissing Jupiter, you could not have stars twinkling more brightly for you.

One other thing is happening this month, something that is due to have a monumentally positive effect on your future. Pluto, your ruler, is about to move into Capricorn on November 25, a very supportive place for you. Pluto has never been in Capricorn during your lifetime, as Pluto takes 246 years to circle the Sun. Once in your third house, Pluto will not leave for another 15 years!

Pluto is known to be the planet that digs deep and helps us plumb our depths. Once in your third house of the mind, you are likely to see your concentration and focus sharpen considerably in the coming years. Your ability to do thorough, deep, and exacting research will be awesome. An example would be doing award winning investigating reporting, say, like Woodward and Bernstein did for Watergate, or the kind of digging a prosecutor would do in preparation for a very big and complicated court case.

When it comes to coming up with hidden information you will be unmatched, and your skill at this will only improve impressively in the years ahead. If you hope to write a book about a part of life that interests you, you will have all the staying power you need to do a very comprehensive study and contribute a lot of new information to the field. It's something to think about, isn't it, dear Scorpio. I will be talking more about this important development in weeks, months, and years to come, but for now, think about how you can use Pluto's new home in your chart to your benefit. This is all so exciting, isn't it, dear Scorpio?


Your birthday month will prove to be all you want it to be! Because some of your strongest and most powerful cosmic support will occur at the very start of the month, you should launch your biggest initiatives the moment November begins. The new moon that occurred last month, on October 28, was your green light to go, go, go. Some new moons are good, some are bad, but this one is SENSATIONAL for you. Don't drop the ball!

Early month would also be a good time to see if you can meet someone new if you are single. Mars is in Scorpio, increasing your visibility and making you much sexier to others. Also, Neptune rules your house of true love, and Neptune's been retrograde since the end of May. Neptune will turn forward on November 2. That's all very good news.

In case you needed more encouragement, Neptune may rule your fifth house of true love, but Uranus is IN that house. The combination of these two planets is the reason you've had so many ups and downs in your love life. The fact that Uranus is FINALLY moving head (after being in sleepy retrograde mode since the end of June) is really good news, too.

Something else is going on that I didn't mention earlier, but will now. Saturn and Uranus will precisely oppose one another on November 4, starting a dialog that will continue in 2009 and 2010 as well. The future oppositions include February 5, 2009; September 15, 2009; April 26, 2010; July 26, 2010; and December 5, 2010. This suggests you will be able to end unproductive patterns in the way you've chosen romantic partners (that is, if you have had difficulty in the past.)

If you are in love and planning to get engaged for the holidays, you or your partner will likely to pop the question on the full moon November 13, plus or minus four days. It would be a fantastic time of the month for promising your love to each other.

You can use this full moon November 13 for other purposes too - with a grand triangle of planets supporting your moves, you can move ahead with an important business alliance, collaboration, or joint venture. It would likely be ready for your signature, and because Mercury is no longer retrograde as it was in October, you can sign your name, confident this would be a great time to do so.

Your spending will increase once Mars, your secondary ruler, visits Sagittarius from November 16 to December 26. Be careful because next month's full moon, December 12 will not be a friendly one for anyone, and for you, it will bring to culmination some sort of matter involving credit or loans. You may find yourself in a jam because that full moon will bring unexpected developments. If you can space out expenditures that are optional, do so. I am so sorry to have to report this news, for I understand how expensive the holidays are for everyone and nobody likes to feel constrained by budgets at this time of the year. I truly sympathize and even wondered if I should tell you this month.

Fortunately, this month, the new moon that will come by earlier, on November 27, will be a blessing because the two weeks that follow will offer you your very best opportunity of all of 2008 to get a raise or a better salary for a new job. It is unlikely that you will get a raise without asking for it, so gather up your courage and do! You deserve more, dear Scorpio, and I feel your timing will be excellent. While you have such a good chance of getting it, strike while the iron is hot!

Your best romantic days to go out and have fun: November 7, 8, 9, 10, 12-16, 20, 24, 25 and 28.

Finally, if you can take a weekend away on November 29-30, do. Venus only meets with Jupiter once a year, and when they do, it spells a time to enjoy luxury and fun. All kinds of positive results will occur, and if you like, you can extend things through December 1.

Key dates to remember:

You'll be strongly in control of events, and they'll go your way, thanks to Mars in Scorpio: November 1-13.

Expect a happy turning point for love and relationships on or in the days that circle the following dates: November 2 and 27. Watch those dates and the days that circle those dates for clues.

If you are serious about someone, a relationship culminates to a new state at the full moon: November 13 - developments should be unexpectedly positive! You may get engaged if you're ready.

Speak up for a raise: On or in the ten days that follow the new moon November 27.

Your best romantic days to go out and have fun: November 7, 8, 9, 10, 12-16. 20, 24, 25, and 28.

Take a quick weekend trip: November 29-30.
