An Eclipse of Reversals — November 2-9 2022


The Moon and Saturn in Aquarius on Wednesday November 2nd, with the Moon trine aspect to Mars and Mars quincunx aspect to Pluto indicates activities that push forward. More work needs to be done to reach any conclusion for political leaders or other endeavors. Thursday with the Moon in Pisces trine aspect to Mercury and Sun in Scorpio may indicate more satisfactory results for emotional appeals. Friday is a complex day, as the Moon transits Neptune and is also square aspect to Mars, before reaching the conjunction aspect with Jupiter in Pisces, and the ingress to Aries. The Sun conjunction aspect with Ketu and Venus in opposition to Uranus could make Friday a volatile day.  Mercury, Ketu, and Sun conjunction are likely to see scandals erupt. Election season for many, culminating in the total lunar eclipse on November 8th. An eclipse tends to bring the unexpected, and with Uranus in conjunction to the Moon in Taurus at the eclipse time, a reversal of a reversal may be produced. A reversal not many accept as accurate, or a denial of the outcome, could be a reading of this eclipse day. Or perhaps a doubly shocking reversal of outcome. Violence at the polling stations, or other interference such as digital attacks, or cyber espionage, as Uranus indicates internet actions.
