Out With the October, In With the New Susan Miller Forecast

November is a very good month, and compared to October, it’s another country! Mercury will be retro until Dec 10, but then free + clear!

We made it. October was really sort of a rough one, wasn’t it? But now, new month, new us, and my Susan Miller is looking really promising. This month I’m going to be “smarter, leaner, tougher, and more able than ever to cope with anything life tosses my way” (doubtlessly she refers to Movember and NaNoWriMo, which both represent long-standing, overly personal trials to my soul); also, Jupiter’s going to be “swirling pixie dust here, there, and everywhere” to up my romance game, and work-wise, I’ll be thinking “exceptionally clearly.” Everyone get ready for some exceptionally clear blogging this month.

So, was your October as bad as Susan Miller said? Is your new forecast also full of joy? Did you too start checking your Susan Miller as a joke and then start believing in it as a practical method of releasing part of your burgeoning tendency to maniacally schedule and control? Have I been driven to astrology because my other form of life management is being ruined by Atlantic pieces? Do you feel like you match your sign? (I’m starting to feel like I am pretty Scorpio-y.) How do you feel about Movember and NaNoWriMo? Should we hijack Movember by refusing to wax our facial hair for a month? The future, though forecasted sunnily, remains chock full of questions.
