As the year 2015 comes to a close we see the consequences of the series of Uranus-Pluto squares in recent years which was marked by the overthrow of the Old World and the formation of the New World.
In the aftermath we are faced this month with the square between Saturn and Neptune, the last phase of a 36-year cycle that began in 1989.
This aspect will also remain topical in 2016, but at the end of November 2015, Saturn squares Neptune for the first time.
Truth and dogma, reality and illusion, responsibility and irresponsibility, isolation and unity.
These beliefs will come under pressure and will be put to the test.
We all have to face the truth in ourselves and the truth in life.
Until the end of 2016, political leaders will be falling from grace and their true intentions will come to light.
The square Saturn-Neptune invites us all out on a journey of self discovery.
Eventually the ultimate truth of the heart will prevail.
The North Node helps in our quest for the ultimate truth.
This month, the Nodes will shift for the next eighteen months from Libra to Virgo.
This will be the theme for 2016, while the end of this year is closing in: the truth in all its forms, the nature of perfection and the realization of how perfect every moment really is, no matter what we think or feel.
The eleventh month of the year starts on November 3, 2015 to November 8, 2015 with an opposition of Jupiter in Virgo and Healer Chiron in Pisces at 17º. Jupiter and Chiron makes us aware of our deepest emotional pain, so that we can heal ourselves and others. Especially in the first half of November 2015 we ask ourselves many times why there is so much suffering and emptiness in the world.
Many of us experience physical and emotional pain.
Many of us doubt the existence of God or any other spiritual power. Many of us wonder the meaning of life and why people have to suffer so much.
Jupiter opposing Chiron challenges us to fill the void in the human heart with the wisdom and purity of sympathy.
When the heart is full of light, the light of wisdom will show us the way! Collective pain requires profound collective healing.
Jupiter in Virgo challenges the retrograde Uranus in Aries since the end of October 2015 and this will last until 18 November 2015.
This means tension and friction between the two most restless and freedom-loving planets in our solar system!
Jupiter and Uranus can be great when it comes to innovations, inventions and new twists in our lives.
However, this is a tense aspect, and changes may not always be pleasant, but confrontational. It sometimes feels as if the ground beneath your feet collapses.
Expect the unexpected and be ready to change!
But this also raises the need for more natural environmentally friendly technology and natural medicine. Proven technologies are revived and improved.
The current system of health care becomes more and more expensive and overload. In the near future there will be more interest in simple, traditional and alternative medicine and methods.
In the first week of November 2015, Venus and Mars are inseparable in the earthly realm of Virgo.
This merger joins the female and male principle. It’s a fusion of pleasure and pain.
But as the saying goes: Pleasure of love lasts but a moment and pain of love lasts a lifetime. It’s a thin line between love and hate.
On November 9, 2015 Venus will leave the sign of Virgo and moves into Libra. Mars follows his beloved Venus on November 13, 2015 and enters the sign of Libra, where it will stay until January 3rd 2016.
This shift from Mars will make an important contribution to peace and harmony in the world.
From that moment on, this energy opens the way for more cooperation and openness.
However, this optimistic and open atmosphere in business and personal lives will be eliminated by the formation of the square between Saturn in Sagittarius and Neptune in Pisces.
On November 11, 2015 we have a New Moon in the intense waters of Scorpio. Read more under NEWS.
On November 18th, 2015 Neptune, the planet of idealism, deception and confusion will turn direct on 7º Pisces in its orbit around the Sun after a long retrograde sleep of five months.
The retrograde period of Neptune began in June 12, 2015. This means that the mists slowly disappear and that things will clear around you and brightens up.
It becomes easier to see what is real.
But keep both feet firmly on the ground! Read more in NEWS
Unfortunately, Neptune is not awarded with peace and quiet.
On November 27, 2015, the square between Saturn in Sagittarius and Neptune in Pisces will be exact.
Reality (Saturn) tackles the Dream (Neptune).
Neptune provides inspiration, but the wise old Saturn translates this inspiration into deception.
Because of this square, solutions on personal and collective level appear to be further away than ever until mid-December 2015. Everything that seems to be solid, now appears to be unstable.
The tension between dream and reality, what is possible and what is probable and the contradiction between idealism and realism is deeply felt at this time.
We'll see clearly what's really going on.
This aspect will confront us with the hard reality. What is truth and what appears to be an illusion.
Because Saturn and Neptune are in their first decan, inner reflection comes first place. In our personal lives we feel limited. The mystical Neptune brings defeatism and self-doubt.
People question their own abilities or success. At this stage people tend to give up the fight before trying.
The positive effect of this Square is to anchor dreams into reality.
The negative side of the Saturn-Neptune square is the unconscious fear of reality.
This fear is manipulated from above. So the lie rules.
To survive and to adapt to the reality in this overwhelming world is becoming increasingly difficult for people who are mentally or physically not able to cope with daily life.
Many people will be designated more to themselves in the creation of positive alternatives.
This is an aspect of dreams that seem real. Reality is like a dream. What is the reality? What is truth?
On November 25, 2015, we see the Full Moon in the air sign of Gemini.
This Full Moon is in the sign of the Truth.

On November 28, 2015 Chiron in Pisces will turn direct at 17 º after a long period of retrogradation from June 24th until November 28th.
In this period of inner healing we have reached a point where we are able to lead the way to those who are lost along the way.
We have learned lessons from psychological injury, healing, awareness, rejection and dignity, compassion, surrender and victimization.
At least I hope we learned.
The time has come to put these lessons in reality.
In this intense period of transition, it is good to pay attention to your dreams and intuition!
I wish you all an inspiring month of November.
