Be Your Own Hero in November
I went back East to Boston for a few days in October, and did some fun early American history things with my family. Our first outing I’d recommend to anyone: “The Freedom Trail” tour that starts on the Boston Commons. Our tour guide was professional comedian Rob Crean (“Isaiah Thomas”): he is a hilarious and entertaining story-teller, with an interesting website. Another attraction we went to that brought history vividly to life is Plimoth Plantation, where the pilgrims settled when they came over on the Mayflower. (Worst trip ever if you were a woman: sailors considered women to be bad luck on a ship and they had to stay out of sight and down below in this godawful dark smelly hold.)
At Plimoth Plantation, everyone is in period dress and an actor, and they stay in character as you speak with them about their pilgrim’s life. It was a remarkable experience to talk to them and feel in direct connection with another century, another sensibility, and another set of wishes and problems. After a couple of hours in 17th century America with its cold bare feel, I was glad to get in the Camry.
I worked with clients in another historical setting: the Theosophical Society, a world-wide metaphysical organization founded in 1875 to study the occult, the kabala, and the work of spiritualist Mme. Blavatsky. Today, alternative healing practitioners can rent rooms in the various lodges, and the one near Boston was perfect: a very old-fashioned house with a parlor and a large meeting room for groups, with therapy rooms upstairs. It also housed the caretaker, Liz, an artist and meditation teacher with a hypnotic, low-pitched voice.
I could have spent all afternoon in the rooms: they were lined with metaphysical books and pamphlets, old and new. I pulled out what must have been one of the first self-help books ever, published in 1912: “Mind Power-the Secret of Mental Magic” by W.W. Atkinson. It’s still in print! I ordered it right away, intrigued by its interesting-looking recipes for changing your consciousness.
Have a wonderful holiday season, I hope everyone gets lots of love and good food,
P.S. I owe lots of tapes! I now have the software to work with this new digital recorder, will send them all out as soon as I set it up, when I come back first few days of November. Sorry for this long delay.

Psychic Messages and Personal Guidance for November 2013
The pictograph:” Be your own hero” means to be your own best friend and support yourself in these testing times. People go through meaningful, consequential, and much needed change in November, and there’s quite a rout of what’s dead and done. We end up more polished but it’s through a grinding process.
The good thing about change now is that it’s “transformational”: upheaval and endings so better circumstances can develop; destruction that soon makes way for a higher vision. The new moon solar eclipse November 3rd brings this Scorpio time of personal revelations and change to a peak. We can feel reborn, and make a huge push forward to move beyond limitations and in to a more expanded freer self. Out in the world, expect tricky times until Mercury goes direct on the 10th, likely showing up in technical, communication, and transportation glitches. Wait to sign contracts if possible. On the plus side, a lot can get cleaned up this Mercury retrograde-people can’t wait to get at certain messes; there’s energy to tackle Herculean or tedious tasks.
On more subtle planes, November can bring mythic life experiences, and if you heroically exercise resilience, at the end of the month you will realize how much you have processed and grown.
November 2013 Horoscopes for the Astrological Signs – Read your Sun, Moon, and Rising Signs
Fire signs: Overall, you learn to make better use of your energy. View past mistakes as the catalyst for positive change. November is quite a different story than the last few weeks; there’s a new creativity to say “yes” to. Actualize your most creative dreams with your most practical, follow-through self.
Aries: Accept being in a slight holding pattern, and use it to pay attention to yourself, make personal discoveries, and better understand any blocks-then forward.
Leo: You gain self-awareness and learn to focus on your strengths. November’s inner victories are hard won and important – celebrate them at the very end of the month.
Sagittarius: You strike out on your own and it feels great!
Water signs: This month is all about new beginnings; you can also feel as if you’ve been delivered from something. You’re very eager to start your new life. You have to start it from authority, and all you’ve learned from experience. Mid-month you take calculated steps towards a desired outcome and higher ground. Not only is the second half of the month more in your control, wherever you’re going, you are more in control of your environment.
Cancer: A lot is new and almost all of it is good; you’re happy about recent news and developments.
Scorpio: “Starting over” is this month’s theme, and it’s written with capital letters. This important change-time leads to more solid ground.
Pisces: New dreams! You realize you have a number of completions in your life, as well.
Air signs: It’s a happy month for air signs…they have access to what inspires them, and life seems to be giving them the green light.
Gemini: You’re going new places and happy about it!
Libra: There are new opportunities and success in your life; you can be happy in new roles.
Aquarius: Love, money, health…in November you will find fulfillment and happiness in one if not more of these basic categories.
Earth signs: Strong identity changes are likely now. Back off from taking action if anything makes you apprehensive– wait until after Mercury goes direct on November 10th to make binding commitments. Their might be some ideas of yours that bite the dust in November. It’s not a good month to push yourself-you’re already teetering on the edge of re-directions and changes…take it easy and take your time.
Taurus: Organize what you have already got going, and fill in the blanks rather than taking on anything new.
Virgo: You are pushed to break through self-imposed barriers; from within, you establish new strength and give yourself more freedom.
Capricorn: Recent challenges and life experiences make you much more confident about taking the next steps professionally.
