This edition from October 2014 saw Eric analyzing the political background just before the U.S. midterm election, which resulted in the Republican Party taking the Senate. He discusses how the political climate warps reality and integrity, with real issues that need addressing being superseded by petty divisions and systematic deception.

If Your Birthday is Nov. 13
(The Day of the Commentator) | Get Your Scorpio Birthday Reading | All Other Signs
If you gain new understanding today of how things in your life came to be the way they are, and if you can put that understanding into words, by all means do so — even just for your own benefit. That said, you might find yourself making the connection between cause and effect for others in your social circles, as well. Yet this is a starting point, not the destination. Your challenge, should you accept it: to use this understanding to help you tangibly midwife some next phase of your life into being.
Written in the Planets
Today the Moon enters Taurus on its way to oppose the Scorpio Sun on Monday, for the Taurus Full Moon. If you feel yourself digging in your heels on some interpersonal matter, it could spell a couple of frustrating days ahead, since others are feeling that same energy. It is possible, however, to metaphorically do one of those T’ai Chi moves where you gently guide someone’s body past you, using their own momentum, without causing any harm to either of you. You’ll have to stay grounded, stay in touch with your intentions, and feel into your body for signals that your emotions are on the verge of taking over. The Moon makes many aspects over the course of the day, some of which could help you in your quest to flow, and some of which could trigger some resistance. If you notice a ‘me first!’ impulse, especially while on social media, see if you can slow down enough to understand it before leaping to act on it.
How funny – I just posted a short video of my Tai Chi instructor on my FB page! Talk about synchronicity. Great advice, and lovely, as always. Thank you.
Haha — Lizzy, that is a fun synchronicity! Glad my metaphor resonated with you.
Daniel Goleman book “Emotional Intelligence” calls it being in Flow.
