what do we know about Moon in Taurus. It is practical, it is solid, it is focused on values. It can take a little bit and methodically add to it bit by bit until it is something solid.
I made a donation to the American Rred Cross this morning.
I hope some of you will do as well. Remember it does not have to be a lot.

Abandoned House in Southampton, NY.
Hurricane Sandy is about to land somewhere along the Jersey Shore. Right near the high tide on a full moon. Gosh, where to begin?
I hope the positive aspects of the full moon chart support people getting the help that they will surely need. I hope that those who are in harms way got out or are safe. I'm hoping the practical Taurus Moon supports everyone in being sensible.
In the meantime and this is secondary, Mercury retrograde on Election Day next Tuesday probably speaks to Sandy. Will there be electricity in some states? Will all the polling places be working? I sort of think not. Mercury retrograde for sure.

It gets heady but there is a lot of good information in this article by Joseph Crane.

. Mercury goes retrograde on election night and this affects both men’s charts. Let’s look again at Obama’s and Romney’s natal charts: we know them better than before. Then I take on transits, secondary progressions, solar returns, and Hellenistic planetary period systems. I will compare both men by each predictive indicator and give some conclusions.
We must also factor in an unusual feature of American politics at this level: the usual fate of the unfortunate losers of U.S. Presidential elections. In Parliamentary systems, losing candidates for Prime Minister, if they wish to stay in office, are the leaders of the opposition party. Barack Obama and Mitt Romney are now at the height of fame and importance, but three months from now one of them may be cast into the political wilderness. The Wheel of Fortune turns steeply for both candidates. This may help us make a prediction about who is more likely to emerge the winner in November

Here's part of his newslestter, Go to LINK for rest of it.
The day in history that shocked the financial world was on August 15th, 1971. This was also referred as “Nixon shock.” Former president Richard Nixon, closed the gold window. The United States made it impossible for other nations to peg their currency to the gold standard, which was the underlying principle behind the Bretton Woods system. As a direct result of the economic policies imposed by the United States at the time, the gold standard was all but abandoned and the world’s major currencies began to float. The Nixon administration effectively “defaulted” on the United States’ long-standing debt obligations ending once and for all the Bretton Woods System.
In other words, August 15th, 1971 is the official day the U.S. dollar was no longer pegged to Gold and was now a free floating fiat based currency backed by nothing but the full faith and credit of the United States and its printing press.
Here is another interesting fact I came across during my research. According to a study of 775 fiat currencies by DollarDaze.org, “there is no historical precedence for a fiat currency that has succeeded in holding its value. Twenty percent failed through hyperinflation, 21% were destroyed by war, 12% destroyed by independence, 24% were monetarily reformed, and 23% are still in circulation approaching one of the other outcomes.”
“The average life expectancy for a fiat currency is 27 years, with the shortest life span being one month. Founded in 1694, the British pound Sterling is the oldest fiat currency in existence. At a ripe ..... go to link for rest of the read.

ETA: Well, here we are two days out from the debate and we're still talking about "Binders of Women" and Candy Crowley fact checking Romney. Like I said, That Venus Square Jupiter was the bitch aspect in the chart. And I think issues that are still being discussed speak to that aspect. Together we say, "gawd yes."

102 years old going on 52. Please watch.
Have zero idea of her time of birth but I looked her up June 26, 1910 and I know she is a Cancer with Moon in Aquarius. Sun conjunct Pluto. Moon trine Pluto. Jupiter sextile Mars and Jupiter Square Sun....that might be the car stuff.
I will bet she has Sag Rising.

Diamond Planet: '55 Cancri e' Orbits Sun-Like Star 40 Light-Years Away, Astronomers Say
LONDON (Reuters) - Astronomers have discovered a planet twice the size of Earth made largely out of diamond which is orbiting a star that is visible with the naked eye.
The rocky planet, called '55 Cancri e', orbits a sun-like star 40 light years away in the constellation of Cancer and is moving so fast that a year there lasts a mere 18 hours.
Discovered by a U.S.-Franco research team, its radius is twice that of Earth's but it is much more dense with a mass eight times greater. It is also incredibly hot, with temperatures on its surface reaching 3,900 degrees Fahrenheit (1,648 Celsius).
"The surface of this planet is likely covered in graphite and diamond rather than water and granite," said Nikku Madhusudhan, the Yale researcher whose findings are due to be published in the journal Astrophysical Journal Letters.
The study - with Olivier Mousis at the Institut de Recherche en Astrophysique et Planetologie in Toulose, France - estimates that at least a third of the planet's mass, the equivalent of about three Earth masses, could be diamond.
Diamond planets have been spotted before but this is the first time one has been seen orbiting a sun-like star and studied in such detail.
"This is our first glimpse of a rocky world with a fundamentally different chemistry from Earth," Madhusudhan said, adding that the discovery of the carbon-rich planet meant distant rocky planets could no longer be assumed to have chemical constituents, interiors, atmospheres, or biologies similar to Earth.
David Spergel, an astronomer at Princeton University, said it was relatively simple to work out the basic structure and history of a star once you know its mass and age.
"Planets are much more complex. This 'diamond-rich super-Earth' is likely just one example of the rich sets of discoveries that await us as we begin to explore planets around nearby stars."

We see that in this chart transitingSaturn continues to oppose Venus. The first hit was on October 3 and the second hit is on October 11. Okay, back in August I thought this was about women and or money. But at that point I was not following the dates of the debates. Had I know that the first hit was the first debate and the second hit was the second debate I would have connected the dots between Saturn/Venus and the debates. Just for sport I think I will put up the solar fire description of Saturn oppose Venus and you do the math:
