Rudy Giuliani and Black Moon Lilith; Generational Mental Health Trends; Simone Biles Wins 24th Career Gymnast
 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. Pluto turns direct on the 3rd in Capricorn, marking a pivot point in the long-term restructuring process of governments, corporations, families, and other social institutions. Tensions may reach crisis levels wherever existential challenges to centralized authority are in play. Pluto’s station may bring out the seedy underside of political and corporate manipulations, the excesses, transgressions, and misuses of legitimate power. Saturn and Pluto are now edging toward their epic conjunction in January, marking an all-or-nothing phase for control. 

2. The Full Moon in Aries arrives on the 13th, an exceptionally momentous astro-event since the Sun-Moon polarity squares Pluto. Any personal planet at 18º to 21º gets dramatically emphasized this month, especially in terms of how you balance personal needs with partnership needs. Expect simmering undercurrents to become explosive, and emotional extremes to lead to big changes. For those who have been playing fairly and with good intentions, Jupiter trine the Aries Moon can bring great success and personal fulfillment. 

3. Jupiter trioctiles Uranus on the 14th, an exciting and/or disruptive vibe in effect from the 8th through 18th. This dynamic combination can bring tremendous insights, and encourage spontaneous, independent actions with surprising benefits. It may also bring uncomfortable encounters with narrow-minded or eccentrically conservative individuals. Jupiter-Uranus urges one to explore new frontiers and try new lifestyles. Excitement, electricity, and new venues are in the air during this phase.

4. Ceres conjoins Jupiter on the 25th, an unusually beneficial influence lasting from the 19th through 31st. In traditional astrology, Venus and Jupiter are considered to be “benefics” since they bring good fortune wherever they are located. In modern times, Ceres can also be considered a benefic, and her combination with Jupiter offers a synergistic cosmic blessing. Ceres-Jupiter in Sagittarius offers a path forward with meaning, purpose, and renewed confidence. Whatever planet or house these two are transiting will be favorably awakened.

5. Black Moon Lilith and Uranus are octile on the 26th, and an underlying influence from the 20th into early November. Lilith and Uranus can both be considered outsiders, and their combination can either stimulate this side of your psyche, or bring these kinds of individuals with their corresponding agendas into your sphere. Lilith and Uranus tend to undermine the status quo, because it’s either corrupt, stagnant, or fundamentally biased. On the 28th, the Sun activates the underlying weirdness, spotlighting which side of this coin you’re personifying.
