Goucho Marx famously said, "I wouldn't want to belong to a club that would have me as a member." Marx would like tomorrow's Full Moon, as the alignments encourage the dissolving of bonds, especially bonds that hold groups, associations, and even friendships together. Don't worry, this doesn't mean we're gonna lose all our friends! (Most of us have, like, thousands, in these weird FB days anyway ...). It does mean, if there's any group we wanna get out of ("tell me again why I joined that local freegan dumpster diving club?") here's our sign. This Moon's alignment can also trigger a bit of anxiety about our foundations or resources in general. Don't worry, Thanksgiving is the very next day and we can reassure ourselves we won't starve over third helpings of Tofurkey.

Equine Astrology Tip of the Day for FRIDAY, Nov 20: The things we admire may push our buttons today horse lovers, so stay away from beautiful Arabians and Thoroughbreds and go hang out with ugly horses instead. For those of us who believe there are no ugly horses, may I introduce the Appaloosa ... JUST KIDDING! ... really, there are no ugly horses. We might want to hang out with the dust balls under the bed instead, get those babies cleaned up. Make a productive use of a pushy day.

Equine Astrology TOD for Wed, Nov 18: Neptune, planet of compassion makes a station today and it's great to celebrate that with altruistic acts. Neppy stations in hard aspect to Saturn, planet of reality though so keep it real: Saint Francis may have been willing to give away his last cloak to a beggar and walk around naked, but you get arrested for that sort of thing nowadays.

Saturday, Nov 14 Equine Astrology TOD: There's a conflict between what we want to want and what we actually want today riders. Best stay in the barn and out of the shopping centers, that way we don't end up with any purchases that make us think, "What was I thinking?" And the pony gets exercised or the barn cleaned! (Or both if you're more ambitious than I am).

TMAstrology for the New Moon in Scorpio (which was, yeah, I know, yesterday ... better late than ...): At this New Moon the Sun/Moon alignment occurs at 19 degrees Scorpio. This degree is known as the "Accursed degree of the accursed sign" (and if we know anyone born near Nov 10-11, we might be thinking, "hmmm, explains a lot" ...). (I jest). It's supposed to be a degree of tragedy though I haven't found that true (but then, there was the Great Lakes freighter the Edmund Fitzgerald which sank when Sun aligned with this degree) ... I have found that people born with Serpens prominent tend to be emotionally intense, creative, and money-motivated (i.e. not usually the starving artist types--they'll find a way to make it pay).
What's New Moon here mean? Now through the Full Moon we'll be more likely to make decisions based on emotion rather than rationality (yes, even the Virgos and Aquarians ... Aquarians make emotion based decisions most of the time anyway, they just like to think they don't; Virgos are the real rationalists of the zodiac), it's a good time to begin creative projects (watch those void moons), and remember that whatever begins on or near the New Moon will reach some sort of fruition or at least enlighten us (an "aha" moment) on the Full Moon.

Equine Astrology Tip of the Day for TODAY and SATURDAY, NOV 7: This morning through Saturday (esp morn) the moon is traveling through the beautiful Venus-Mars-Jupiter alignment we've all been getting up before dawn to see (haven't we?!). This can inspire excitability. (The alignment I mean, not the getting up before dawn ...). Good thing to keep in mind while interacting with our horses, and with people too. Might want to avoid especially reactive individuals altogether if possible.

Okay, to get away from the chancy realm of horse racing and back to regular, old daily astrology ... Equine Astrology Tip of the Day for TODAY (Mon, 11-2) and tomorrow (Tuesday 11-3): Moon is in fiery Leo and at last quarter square ... both signify a great time to get rid of parasites and/or extra hair. Deworm our horses if needed. And if we're a male and bearded, remember, anyone who tells you your beard makes you look homeless isn't someone you want to take to your cardboard box anyway.
