The Sun is in 28 Scorpio (in my 3rd house): An Indian squaw pleading to the chief for the lives of her children. (Symbol for 29 Scorpio from Dane Rudhyar, An Astrological Mandala)
In the morning, the Moon will enter Aries (in my 7th house).
I am now on Thanksgiving break. After I finish grading papers from today, write several letters of recommendation, and finish reading and commenting on a student's dissertation, I will be able to start my break in fact.
I had an appointment with the astrologer I have mentioned a couple of times. It was a good appointment. He clearly prepared the chart well, and brought up a number of things I most likely wouldn't have come up with on my own. He began to record the session, but we had to switch from Skype to phone because the Skype connection started to freeze. If the recording was successful, I will have a chance to review the session in detail. One thing I can say is that it is a relief to be in a space other than emotional distress related to complicated friendships, which had previously been the case when I had been consulting with astrologers.
