As we approach the Full Moon phase this month it may be possible to detect some of the shifts and changes that occurred over the last couple of weeks and especially since the recent New Moon eclipse in Scorpio. Deep undercurrents of transformation can be seen as subtle ripples, or felt as tumultuous waves of revelation or recognition, as it becomes impossible to conceal the reality or truth in many different areas of life.

There may be the sense that, despite the everyday challenges and ongoing difficulties, a corner has been turned and the road ahead looks like it holds a promise of something much more positive.

The Sun in Scorpio during the first three weeks of the month, keeps the focus on bringing the uncomfortable, unspeakable or unsavoury elements in our society out into the open for scrutiny and purging.

With the Full Moon in steadfast Taurus this month, our emotions can now stabilise, as we consolidate the lessons we’ve had to learn about ourselves and how we relate to others over the last few months. It’s truly possible to experience some peace and acceptance during this phase.

The Sun’s journey is currently closely accompanied by Venus so there are gifts to be found amongst the ashes of the Phoenix, (another symbol of Scorpio), as the developments of the last several years reveal the potential for a creative and positive version of the future. November and early December lead us into the last, of seven difficult square angles between Uranus and Pluto, which has been the signature planetary theme since 2012.

The fiery planet Mars has now entered the earth sign Capricorn and this brings all kinds of structures and establishments under review once more as it joins with Pluto on November 10. As Mars moves forward, it makes a challenging square angle to disruptive Uranus on November 13. Mars takes two years to come full circle and the last time he was in this area of the Zodiac was November 2012. Many of the institutions, governments, corporations or social systems that were in the spotlight then could find it hard to survive this period intact.

In the midst of this testing planetary dynamic the benevolent Venus joins with the ‘time lord’ Saturn in Scorpio on November 12. As unstable structures are undermined those relationships and core values that have been tested, but held up well, should benefit from the renewed vows and reinforced resolve to follow through with something of true worth now.

The next Full Moon is at 15° Taurus on November 6 at 10:23pm and the New Moon is at 1° Sagittarius on November 22 at 8:51pm

Aries: You have a strong appreciation of what has value, and what doesn't. You get some satisfaction and sense of achievement from providing for the basic needs of yourself and others. Feelings of economic insecurity can find you staying longer than necessary in an unsatisfactory work situation. Wise decisions are based on knowing what is right for you and not on always playing it safe. Remember that the talents and abilities you've built up over the years are your security and if you put them to good use you will find the stability you’re reaching for.

Taurus: Emotions and personal attachments are central issues in your life now, though it may be that you are the one stretching the limits. You want to have the chance to make some kind of statement about who you are and what sets you apart from others rather than what you share in common. Trust and intimacy are primary concerns right now and you might have cause to test the bonds with the people closest to you. Start with an identity reality check. Be sure you know who you are first and then get out there and let everyone else know.

Gemini: At this time you have a deep longing to seek refuge in something, which transcends everyday life. Perhaps this will manifest itself in creative, musical or artistic work. Give time to whatever enables you to merge with something greater than your personal self. You won’t function well in the social whirl during this Full Moon so take time out to appreciate your talents away from distractions. This is a time of reorganising yourself on a subtle level and it’ll take awhile to become aware of the changes. Begin this phase slowly with plenty of time to delve into that impressive imaginative resource that is your inner world.

Cancer: Satisfaction comes when you have a sense of belonging to the people you work with, and knowing that they also appreciate you. This Full Moon you might be thinking more about how your ideals fit in with the people around you. You may have become quite attached to personal projects and have some difficulty letting go of the reins when other people need to take over. Use this opportunity to make a positive move towards openness and you may discover a talent for working with people in groups, especially if this involves caring or humanitarian projects.

Leo: If you’re not already striking out to fulfill your ambitions then now is the time to make plans for your future. Getting yourself some recognition for what you do well takes on extra significance during this Full Moon. You may find yourself playing a much more significant role, even being out in the public eye as you’re especially able to appreciate what is wanted now. Remember though, it could be wise to develop a certain emotional detachment, so that you feel less vulnerable. You want to get ahead and be appreciated and now is the time to dream up your wildest dreams and take the risk of following them.

Virgo: During this Full Moon travel, higher learning, study and spiritual matters can occupy your mind. You are hungry for understanding and will seek to attain further knowledge or wisdom. It's a great time for planning, dreaming up new schemes, or rearranging the way you look at things. Patterns you establish now do not need to be perfected until later, so you can stick to generalities until you've got the basic plan established. Don’t be surprised if you find an opportunity to link with foreign cultures as there are valuable exchanges to be had. You have much to learn over the next few months.

Libra: Use your ability to tune in to the deepest emotional signals in other people during this Full Moon. If you can face your inner emotional fears now, you’ll help guide others through theirs. You have the courage to be honest with yourself which encourages others to be honest about their failings too and you’ll be appreciated for the support. Start this next phase with the determination to throw out some old worn out ways and unproductive thinking. This is a time of renewal for you so be prepared for some real transformation.

Scorpio: Personal and professional partnerships need your attention now. Try to find the balance in your most important relationships during this Full Moon phase. You may make too many compromises for the sake of emotional peace. You can be very sincere when you want to be but it has to go both ways or you’ll have reason to feel resentful. An increased receptivity to the influence, problems and needs of others inclines you to a listening job in which you can give support and nourishment.

Sagittarius: Emotional problems can arise at work because of some over-sensitivity and unconscious overreaction. Be aware of where you feel threatened by change and adapt before it happens. You’ll find yourself working on behalf of others now and wanting to be at your best and give your all for to improving conditions, either at work or some other important area of your life. Consider which longterm projects will give you the greatest sense of personal achievement and know that your mind body and spirit are being looked after.

Capricorn: There is no time like the present when it comes to having fun, entertaining friends or relaxing with a loved one. Romance in all its forms is demanding to be indulged. Your tendency to yearn for the security of love and intimacy is at a peak and you might find yourself trying to match reality to your fantasy with disappointing results. Begin with a flourish but remember that a more lasting satisfaction comes from creative achievements of all kinds and can be found in simpler pursuits. Whatever you do make sure you have plenty of time to daydream between social events.

Aquarius: The bonds to the past may seem stronger at the moment. There is plenty of opportunity to reconsider people and places that have been important in your past. Fundamental security is a major preoccupation for you especially now and you’ll be thinking of ways that you can bring something of your past experiences into the future. You function best when there is peace on the home front, but you might find yourself distracted by family worries or be concerned with matters of the home, land or property. Start to express some of those deep inner tensions that you’ve allowed to build up.

Pisces: When you communicate, you’ll find you do so with feeling and conviction. You have a compelling persuasive aura about you now and you are well suited to situations where communication is essential. It may be your job to sort the wheat from the chaff and dispel confusion over certain matters. This is no time to be taking it easy because your skills are required in many areas and friends and neighbours will benefit from your knowledge. Remember to maintain a good pace and you’ll have a lot to be grateful for if you are prepared to be generous in sharing yourself.

Submarines, American Sailors, and the Underwater War in Irish Waters, 1917-1918
by Dr John Borgonovo in The Parish Centre, Clonakilty
on Thursday Oct 26 2017 at 8.30 pm

In 1917, unrestricted submarine warfare by German U-boats brought the United States into WWI and created a crisis in Britain. To defeat the submarine menace, an American naval fleet was dispatched to County Cork, bringing about 10,000 sailors with it. This talk will explain the circumstances of this extraordinary event, and how Cork residents dealt with their unexpected American guests.

Dr John Borgonovo is a lecturer in the School of History at UCC. His publications include Spies, Informers, and the 'Anti-Sinn Féin' Society: The Intelligence War in Cork City, 1920-1921; The Dynamics of War and Revolution: Cork City, 1916-1918; Exercising a close vigilance over their daughters: Cork women, American sailors, and Catholic vigilantes, 1917-18; Something in the Nature of a Massacre: The Bandon Valley Killings Revisited (with Andy Bielenberg). His latest publication (with co-authors John Crowley, Donal Ó Drisceoil and Mike Murphy) is the highly acclaimed and magnificient Atlas of the Irish Revolution. In July of this year, he organised a very successful conference on Winning the Western Approaches - Unrestricted Submarine Warfare and the US Navy in Ireland 1917-1918.

Dúchas Clonakilty's first lecture for the Autumn promises to be of huge interest to all: Emerging from the Shadow of Tom Crean – The Parish Centre, Clonakilty, Thursday September 28th 8.30pm.

Lecture by Aileen Crean O’Brien & Bill Sheppard

In May 2016, Kerry man Tom Crean, along with Ernest Shackleton and four other crew members, landed the James Caird lifeboat on the rocky isle of South Georgia. The navigation of that small boat, across 1500 km through icy winds and towering seas, is regarded as the greatest ever feat of navigation. They then trekked across the forbidding and inhospitable mountains and glaciers of South Georgia to seek help for the rest of their crew, who were left behind on Elephant Island after their ship, the Endurance, was crushed by the Antarctic ice.

One hundred years later, Crean’s grandaughter, Aileen Crean O’Brien, set off with her sons and partner to follow in her grandfather’s footsteps. Join Aileen and Bill to hear of their adventures (and misadventures) on the Southern Ocean and the island of South Georgia.
