1. The New Moon on the 1st is a Solar Eclipse and is being metaphysically shaped by close aspects to Saturn and Neptune. It begins a month-long phase that attempts to reconcile the practical, hard-nosed realities of Saturn with the nebulous, idealistic, imaginative qualities of Neptune. On the political scene, we can expect a disheartening number of scandals to plague the presidential candidates. For many, health and work-related issues need attention. Are you satisfied with your job? How can you improve your health?

Editor's Note from Cathy Alinovi: I think it's normal for most of us to want warming, filling foods as we move into colder months. Hard to believe sometimes, but the same is true for our pets.
