Here is STARCAST. Will open in an .mp3 player.
The new Nov. 2 horoscope in full is below the paywall. It is however always strange to call these readings “horoscopes.” They are based on the British model of a 12-sign newspaper column, of which I have written many. But those must be ultra-simple and get to the point in 50 words.
With Planet Waves, I have the length and editorial freedom to bring in much more — a more complete message and reasoning process, taking several factors into account.
There is nothing else offering this depth of understanding on the internet or in print. My intent is for the end effect to give you the benefits of astrological thought and timing without having to invest the many years of practice that it takes to read the charts and express what’s there.
These readings are valid for your sign and rising sign. If you don’t know your rising, subscribers may reply to this email. Depending on how many requests we get, it may take a little while to reply.
Here are the Nov. 2 entries for Scorpio and Sagittarius, Sun and rising:
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 22) — You’re in a new stage of potential in your relationships, though to make that real, the creative spark has to come from you. The heat, the light, the ideas, the motivation, must start with you. However, you may discover that ultimately this is not about relating to anyone but yourself. You know this on some level: that your partnerships are a reflecting foil. You don’t need them as much as you think you do, or for the reasons you think you do. Imagine if you woke up one day released from all the connections, commitments and entanglements of your life. If you could consciously choose only what you want, I reckon it would be simpler than what you now have. Yet your present scene is mostly driven by your desires and complexity. Important people in your life have been moving toward greater independence for quite a long time.
I’m planning to do the Scorpio Studio reading next week, delayed by my taking some time away to settle down after losing Jonah last week. The reading is still available at pre-sale pricing. This is the most elegant, helpful astrology you can have without a private consultation, and even many of those will not stand up to Astrology Studio. This reading is included with the Backstage Pass or Founding Membership.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 22) — If there is conflict in your life, do not be so quick to trust it. By trust, I mean take it seriously, or assume that it’s valid. It’s likely, and close to certain, that any strife is coming from a source other than what seems obvious. So begin with some healthy skepticism and then based on that, try not to get too involved, or to act on any “hunches.” Whatever you’re experiencing is bubbling up from a source other than what you may think. It may take some time to work out what that is, and it may have roots in the distant past. Also not to bring up anything too personal in a horoscope millions of people will read, but are you able to express yourself sexually in any of the ways that you need? Your imagination seems to be rather rich at the moment, and you might look for creative partners in this important facet of life.
If you appreciate my horoscopes, you will love my readings. I have a new reading planned for Sagittarius. I’m planning to have that soon after the Sun enters your birth sign. This reading is included with the Backstage Pass or Founding Membership.
The rest of the horoscopes are below. Thank you for your business and your trust.
