 NeptuneCafe is a virtual astrology magazine, one of the best I've seen online. There's something of the feel of coffeehouse conversations, if all the patrons were smart and savvy  
astrophiles on espresso - the think drink. Don't miss Michael Wolfstar's weekly NewsScope column. Guest columns by well known astrologers - well, astrologers well known within the astrological community - can be quite an eye opener to people who think astrology begins and ends with Sun Signs. Who knew astrology could be popular without Sun Signs?

In the industrialized world, why is the U.S. the most violent nation?
The Scorpio Rising chart uniquely explains this tendency, especially when considering the problem as a health issue. The 6th and 12th houses are coming under increased stress. more
1. Jupiter enters Sagittarius
on the 8th while making a quincunx (150º) to Uranus, establishing a distinctive new pattern of events over the coming year, influencing both personal and geopolitical realms. Jupiter in Sadge can be dogmatic, pompous, and self-righteous, so these are the traits to watch out for when Jupiter aspects planets in your own chart. On the plus side, wherever Sagittarius falls, whatever house is activated, is an area where you can expect new opportunities to arise.

2. Uranus retrogrades back into Aries on the 6th, where it remains through March 6, 2019. This month Uranus in the last degree of Aries squares the Lunar Node axis and also the U.S. progressed Pluto, indicating a major political disaster or showdown in Washington. Expect huge, audacious power plays that may bring a constitutional crisis. This combination uniquely afflicts the U.S. and its power structures, including financial. With Uranus activating the U.S. progressed Venus, expect an unusual influx of women politicians.

3. Mercury turns retrograde
on the 16th while squaring Neptune, marking an unusually loud “Fake News” phase lasting from the 13th through 19th. Sidestep making any long-lasting business or financial plans at this time and for the next three weeks. Conspiracy theories abound, and factual information is ignored as people believe what they want to believe. Avoid over-analyzing situations and use your intuition more.

4. Venus turns direct on the 16th ending a 40-day phase of questioning, re-assessing, and otherwise re-working relationship issues. However, since Mercury is retrograde, don’t expect any unresolved problem areas to miraculously clear up. Venus makes some separative aspects on November 28-30, so avoid routine or set patterns around these days. Otherwise, Venus direct in Libra urges you to correct any recent missteps in your relationships, restore balance and civility, and re-build your social network.

5. The Full Moon on the 23rd takes place just after the Sun enters Sagittarius, suggesting an optimistic new beginning for many, and reason to be thankful and gracious. The Sun conjoins Jupiter on the 25th making the 22nd through 25th a good time to be with friends, family, and loved ones. With Mercury retrograde, anticipate travel delays. If you want to remain on friendly terms with your tribe, avoid talking about religion and politics. Otherwise, expect a great deal of chatting and socializing.
