Here is the synopsis of the major events coming up in November to get you started:
Cardinal alignments November 6-15th. Ever since Pluto entered Capricorn in 2008 there has been an expanding and contracting pressure from other planets that have aspected Pluto. Because Pluto and the other planets were in the Cardinal signs of action (Capricorn, Cancer, Libra, Aries) some astrologers have called this the “Cardinal Crisis,” the “Cardinal Climax,” etc. I preferred to call it a Cardinal Drama, because a “climax” or “crisis” suggests that there will be a peak of intensity which will then be followed by a resolution.
As many of you know, this Cardinal Drama was particularly stimulated by the challenging square between Uranus in Aries to Pluto in Capricorn. You can read many many articles about this cycle here on this site, but you will find a summary in the sidebar of this page. Uranus/Pluto cycles rarely create a peak of intensity which resolves itself as we would find in other planetary cycles – Uranus inspires the breakdown of the old order and Pluto encourages its destruction. Then the rebuilding must occur, but the final resolution can take time.
