 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?

Progressions, what are they?
Like fractals, progressions have similar shapes at different scales of time. They are clearer symbols of forthcoming events than transits. Why don't more astrologers use them? Get the scoop

Black Moon

NeptuneCafe now has five pages on Lilith. You can preview or link directly to each by going to the Lilith Front Page

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.  Venus turns retrograde on the 5th in Scorpio while in the midst of a relatively long-term square to Mars in Aquarius. This combination is a classic “battle of the sexes”, and with Black Moon Lilith also involved, discord within relationships can be expected all month long. These planets can promote uncomfortable sexual aggression, or its opposite, sexual repression, which in turn may lead to eruptions of violence. Find the balance.

2. Mercury enters Scorpio on the 9th where it remains for the rest of the month. Mercury here can bring an obsessive, suspicious, cynical attitude due to the challenging aspects it makes through the 19th. Underhanded and poisonous thinking can dominate both personal and national events. Watch out for a wave of insults, manipulative remarks, and toxic commentaries. The antidote to malicious conversations is kindness toward the victims of slander. Beneficial agreements can be made on the 28th or 29th.

3. Transiting Saturn is trioctile the U.S. Vesta on the 19th, an aspect in effect all month. The U.S. Vesta in Taurus may be associated with the recent Bull market, especially with the long-term support of a trine from transiting Pluto. But Venus turning retrograde on the U.S. Scorpio Ascendant suggests a temporary market reversal is in order as transiting Saturn to the U.S. Vesta makes institutional investors more cautious. 

4. The Full Moon on the 24th conjoins Uranus in Taurus as both square the Lunar Node axis. This jarring astro-event fits with the infamous “October surprise” in key election states. Personal relationships are due for a shake-up or major adjustment, especially where finances are concerned. Under this Full Moon, be prepared to make big changes but avoid risky ventures. Whatever gives you the strongest sense of security and stability may be challenged or even threatened, especially if you have personal planets in the early degrees of fixed signs.

5. Neptune conjoins the U.S. progressed Sun on the 27th just days before the mid-term election. This is the sixth of seven phases of this combination, which has been in effect since April 2016 when Trump burst onto the national scene, and Russia began manipulating the election. U.S. leadership continues to be under a cloud, with charges of “fake news” obscuring the tradition of objective reporting. Hackers may once again skew election results, or cyber-security may become compromised.
