Election Day with Mercury Direct and Astrology Forecast November 1-7

by Leo Knighton Tallarico

As I write this week’s blog, the Full Moon in Taurus conjunct Uranus has past a few hours ago.

So we are now in the waning, last half of a lunar cycle that began at the New Moon in Libra on October 16.

It is Samhain, this day of October 31, a yearly passage that has been downgraded to Halloween in our current pop culture.

Samhain represents a time of year when it is said that the veils between worlds or dimensions is the thinnest.

That means that we have greater and easier access to an inner dimension that is said to be populated by spirits or souls that were once a part of alive bodies.

At this time of year, there are people who create or are a part of seances that attempt to contact these spirits that once inhabited a body.

Deb and I sat near a fireplace several years ago, and attempted to contact relatives who had died. We both felt that what we had experienced was real. We closed our eyes, and asked the spirits if they had anything they wanted to say to us.

We each received information that felt real and authentic at the time. If you are feeling it, give it a try.

I believe that even beyond this Samhain event, we are being given more permission to enter alternate dimensions and realities now.

Our ability to “see inside” is greater now, and that also means that extraterrestrial contact is more open to us now also.

I believe that these entities are getting more motivated about entering our lives. They may appear to us in dreams and through waking glances, or connections while our eyes are closed in meditation or before falling asleep.

And I believe it quite possible if not likely, that they will appear in our awake time- collectively for all to see.

There is such a huge release of the past, of old baggage and old programming that has been happening this year.

And with that release, new windows and doors are opening to bring us the New, which will fill the void.

And it behooves us to be more flexible, more open minded and open hearted.

Something New is being born in our world and collective consciousness.

The death of the old Paradigm and Age promise a new Paradigm and age, one that will have surprises, wonder, and joy.

For that to happen to you or me, we need to each be more vulnerable and less controlled by our mind.

This week the highlight is Mercury finally leaving Retrograde and going back Direct on Tuesday November 3 at 12:50 PM EST.

That happens to be Election Day, which if the past is any guide to the future, means a most confusing night.

Last time Mercury went from Retrograde to Direct on an Election Day was in November of 2000 when tv anchors went back and forth all night between declaring Bush , then Gore, then Bush, then Gore, etc winning as President of the USA.

Many hanging chads later, there was a decision made by the Supremes that Bush would be President.

This time we can count on confusion, playing with the truth, not trusting of the results, and many still not wanting to believe their guy has lost.

Soon after Election Day, we have Jupiter conjunct Pluto, Mars in Aries going Direct, and a New Moon in Scorpio on November 12, 13 and 14 respectively.

Those events are big Go signs for Eclipse Season and moving forward.

Everything will likely not be even close to being settled, but “ready or not here it comes”.

Pandora’s Box of chaotic events opens up as we experience Eclipses on November 30 and December 14.

That will be followed by a most important Winter Solstice, one that has an Aquarian Age signature with a Jupiter conjunct Saturn in Aquarius day.

Back to this week and Mercury going Direct on November 3. Remember that full clarity after Mercury goes Direct usually takes a week or more afterward.

There will be a winding down and a waiting for the dust to clear from the Election and Mercury Retrograde. The Moon is waning until that New Moon in Scorpio on the 14th, a day after Mars goes Direct on Friday the 13th.

There is much transformative change on the rise, so remember to take care of yourself now and going forward.

Till next week,
