Knowledge enhances my global and personal perspective.
Heavenly Father, on Thanksgiving Day

For mother, father, daughter, and son.
For joy, health, friends,
Our family members who care,
For our daily provisions, All this we share.
These are the blessings You graciously share.
Today we offer gratitude of praise.
We are One with the Universe for all of our days.
The Sun has entered SCORPIO
SCORPIO energies bring a renewed interest in sharing. You become more public oriented and are searching for love as well as career recognition. Be determined that early month trauma, fears, pessimism, repression and doubts can be eliminated from your life as you promote a penetrating insightfulness, willpower and the skill to solve mysterious riddles. This is the height of the season. Autumn has truly arrived. Enjoy entertaining and socializing with friends and colleagues. Above all, cultivate the skill of open, empathetic communication in place of subtle deception. Scorpio is an intense sign, and is not in a realm of easy answers, but it always holds the gold key to spiritual transcendence.
Based on the Rune Harvest and the Animal Opossum, November brings strength, success and abundance for 2012. Do not force confrontations, meditate for direction, and remember that Mercury retrogrades on Thanksgiving Day. Keep your Spirits up and work with the energies. That which is not rushed will have the best outcome for you. Broaden your sense of Self beyond the horizon and remember to share your good!

ANIMAL: OPOSSUM — Diversion
OPOSSUM – Diversion
Are you really dead?
Or just playing possum?
Was it something I said?
The Opossum greatest form of protection is to roll over and play dead. In doing this, Opossum confuses many a predator into believing that the game is over. Oftentimes the confused rival walks away or looks in the other direction for a moment, and the Opossum runs to safety.
Opossum medicine uses a great deal of strategy. If all else fails, Opossum plays dead. It has the ability to fight with its claws and teeth, but rarely uses this form of protection. Instead, the supreme strategy of diversion is constantly employed when things get a little hard to handle. Opossum has developed an act that would receive the Academy Award in the animal kingdom. The musk of the death scent is excreted as well, adding to the master play that sends enemies on many trails of confusion.
As Opossum has turned up for the vibration of November 2011, you are being asked to use some form of strategy in a present situation. Rely upon your instincts for the best way out of a tight corner. If you have to pretend to be apathetic or unafraid, do it! Oftentimes if you refuse to struggle or show that hurtful words bother you, your taunter will see no further fun to the game. Warriors have used Opossum medicine for centuries, playing dead when the enemy nears and outnumbers them. Then, in a flash, when the enemy is least expecting it, the war cry is heard. The fright of this serves to further confuse the unsuspecting opposition. Victory is sweet when the strategy is one of mental as well as physical prowess.
Opossum is relaying to you that you are to expect the unexpected and be clever in achieving your victory. This could be a victory over a bothersome salesman or nosy neighbor. In essence, Opossum is beckoning you to use your brain, your sense of drama, and surprise attack —to leap over some barrier to your progress.

RUNE FOR NOVEMBER
HARVEST—Fertile Season—New beginnings—One Year
This is the Rune of beneficial outcomes. It applies to any activity or endeavor to which you are committed. Receiving this Rune encourages you to keep your spirits up. Be aware, however, that no quick results can be expected. Always a span of time is involved; hence the key words one year, symbolize a full cycle before the reaping, the harvest or deliverance.
You have prepared the ground and planted the seed. Now you must cultivate with care. To those whose labor has a long season, a long coming to term, it offers encouragement of success. Know that an outcome is in the keeping of Providence. Jera is a counsel to preserve.
Remember the farmer who was so eager to assist his crops that he went out and tugged on the new shoots. There is no way to push the river; equally you cannot hasten the harvest. Be mindful that patience is essential for the recognition of your own process, which in it s season leads to the harvest of self.
Don’t be afraid to make the leap or take the chance.

STARGAZING FOR SCORPIO 2011
The November 10th Full Moon in Taurus brings a time of feeling emotional but needing to be practical. Bring matters that have to do with what you value, from your living space to your bankbook, to a successful conclusion. This is the most creative Full Moon of the year. Whatever is set in motion at this time will have a long-lasting effect.
The November 24th New Moon in Sagittarius brings a partial Solar Eclipse. An eclipse on Thanksgiving Day and Mercury retrogrades through December 13th as well. It is wise to review and revise rather than begin new projects now. Buying Holiday gifts too early may lead to regrets and poor judgment. Get ready to rock and roll, because the next six to eight weeks promise to be busy ones.
Mercury retrogrades on November 25th for three weeks.
SCORPIO: Polarity: Feminine Sign: Fixed Element: Water Planetary Rule: 8th House/Pluto Body: Colon/Genitals FOCUS: I desire.
Aries (3/21 – 4/20)
The November 10th Full Moon in Taurus is on your side, providing some extra cash as the Holiday Season opens. Life is good until the 24th, when Mercury retrogrades. This can affect Holiday plans, especially if you have travel schedules or are expecting visitors. If you cook on Thanksgiving, be sure to stick to the tried and true. Avoid trying out any new recipes.
Your confidence gets a boost with the November 10th Full Moon in your sign. Be cautious with electricity around Thanksgiving weekend, which is not the time to travel. A career-relate misunderstanding early in November could rise up again at month’s end. November’s energy is about compromise and blending your interests with those of others.
You could be prone to a cold or flu at the November 10th Full Moon. Stay warm, eat well, and get plenty of sleep that week, Gemini. Meditate for self-renewal.

Life is good but there are some home challenges as November opens as well as around the 20th. A leak is possible, or an appliance repair. If you need repairs, first check credentials, or at least get a recommendation from a close friend. Someone you trust. Curb impulse purchases to get a jump-start on Holiday shopping. Make a list first then look for sales.
November brings high energy, incentive, and initiative. This is an asset at this fast-paced time of year, but also a detriment. Slow down when working with tools or in the kitchen.

November can be an easygoing month if you can relax and unwind every evening. You could get yourself all keyed up and it may be difficult to get a good night’s sleep.

Scorpio (10/ 23-11/22)

You may find in November that your sixth sense is activated, much to your surprise. You are encouraged to slow you pace even though the Holiday Season begins. Plan some down time over the Thanksgiving Day weekend to share warm moments with loved ones and family. You may have some private talks with someone who can advance your career at month’s end.
A misunderstanding with someone close is possible as November opens, and again on the 20th. Awareness can prevent or at least minimize things.

November’s hotspots can be more than aggravating at times. When Mercury retrogrades on the 24th you are in for a period of mix-ups and misunderstandings with career matters. This energy can also play havoc with travel and computers. Back up, back up, even if some data is handled by someone else.
