A Guide to Navigating These Moments
An emotional roller coaster is likely in November, especially given increased societal tensions after an unprecedented level of hate-fueled violence has unfolded. To be sure, this is the dark side of humanity and it’s surfacing for healing on a big scale. It’s playing out in small to big towns, in business, in social circles, online, and in political debates ahead of key elections such as those in the US on November 6. Continue reading for insights on how to optimally respond to these energies and what you can do to connect with positive potentials.
First, let’s come back to the big picture. Humanity has a dark side, but the majority of people are not filled with hate. Most people are caring, loving, and kind. Some are more loving than others, of course, but people in general do their best to get along. It’s only a tiny proportion of the population that consciously seeks to oppress and destroy others. It’s only a small number within our global society who believe that they have the right to levels of wealth and power that in effect cause great suffering and loss of life on this planet.
Second, remember that cycles of transformation take a very long time. There are stages, and this is a very messy one. It likely will get messier. Yet we prevail. Trust this. We are divine changemakers, and as such, we are wired to prevail and be instrumental voices in the chaotic dance of change.
Third, as mentioned in recent articles, it’s important that we stay present and active during these difficult times. It’s horrible to see innocent people slaughtered due to hate and mean-spirited agendas of others. It’s unthinkable to contemplate that today in 2018 we still have this level of atrocity on the Earth. Yet, we must not look away. To change these outcomes, we must look directly and without fear. We must not let the hate immobilize us.
Fourth, on a personal level, it’s vital that you regularly replenish your energy and connect with your own higher wisdom in these moments. Ask for a higher view. Ask that your love expressed in the world be an antidote to the hate. Do not let hate extinguish your fire. Use your light-filled energy to bring love to situations and tragedies fueled by hate.
Fifth, do not lose faith in humanity’s ability to get to the other side of our current abyss. Be one who holds the vision of a new world in which people are united and loving. Be one brave enough to choose the high road of spirit even when others don’t.
Your Choices Now Matter
When you are born certain things are destined, like your ancestry and place of birth. Most things, however, are fluid, manifesting in response to your choices along the path. Choose wisely. Each choice determines a vast array of future choices you will have. Each choice becomes a part of the unique way you decide to show up in the world. Each choice determines the impact you can have in the world. Each choice becomes the foundation of how you can help change the world for the better.
The Moon in November
Here are moon dates to watch in November, each of them significant energetically.
Scorpio New Moon on November 7 – At this moon you could have an opportunity for a fresh start with a relationship or key project important to you. Be open to looking at things with new eyes. No one and nothing stays the same. Allow for change, and be a force for positive change in all things.
Gemini Full Moon on November 22-23 – This moon brings amplification and potentials for adding a new dimension to something in your life. Approach things with an open mind and open heart.

Meanwhile, other energies to navigate include Mercury Retrograde, starting November 16 to December 6. A suggested use of this time is inner level reflection about your life and what you want to shift before year-end.
One way to initiate this reflection is to ask questions such as the following before inner work or dream time.
FIRST, what do I need to let go of to have more inner peace and success?
SECOND, which of my 2018 goals is most important to focus on?
THIRD, what are the themes of DNA ancestral patterns continuing to block my progress?
Suggestion: as you do inner process with these questions, remember to relax and avoid overthinking. Go with the first insights that come to you.
