So I went to a patient appreciation party thrown by my dentist last night, and it turned out to be...surprise...a lot of fun. I shucked oysters and joked with two people whose names I didn't catch, chatted with the hygienists and receptionist, and did what Dr. Fruit told us to do all night, Show off your beautiful smile. I had been on the fence about going, partly because it meant a drive across town, to one of the islands. But the good vibes reminded me that casual parties of acquaintances have their own lite magic.
In the newsletter of Lucky Astrology, the Jupiter-centered site of Davie Pfaffle, he sees Jupiter's move toward a sextile with Uranus (on the 11th) as a time to be friendly with random people. I told my husband we'd be accepting every invitation that came our way this season. I'm a moody Cancer, so we'll see if that holds. But just to get out, meet new people; this transit is about unexpectedly exciting encounters with new people, in unusual settings. Says Pfaffle, And remember, that works two ways. Others, even if they are strangers, will be feeling this energy too and will be receptive to our invitation to interact.
With wildcard Uranus still in play, Jupiter (in Capricorn) meets get-real Saturn (in Virgo), on the 11th, and that's the time to start mulling over the purpose of these new contacts. By the 17th, this trine between the luck and expansion bringer (Jupiter) and structured progress (Saturn) is the dominant theme. Some may prove to have the basis for joint enterprises, given that these planets are both in earth signs.
Some of the chance encounters of early November may root themselves, as part of your resource-sharing circle. What friendships have substance, and help you build a network that feels stable and mutually supportive? Jupiter draws unexpected allies your way, that at first may not fit your usual 'friend' type. If like me, you're seeing the need to share resources, and be more part of the community, for whatever lies ahead. The cosmos, through Uranus, opens our eyes to unusual match-ups, and some may be just the ones we need to re-weave that social web.
