On Thursday, November 26th, Americans will wolf down 49 million turkeys for Thanksgiving dinner. Since nearly 8 million of the big birds were destroyed this summer over fears of Avian Flu, turkey forecasts predicted prices would be up 15 to 20 percent. Supply and demand, right?

Societal Saturn squares compassionate (or fraudulent) Neptune:

This pattern perfects on Thanksgiving Day, just after perfection of a Full Moon, making for an interesting holiday.
You might remember the Saturn SemiSquare Pluto period of August 2015. Although Saturn was in late Scorpio, and the Sun (Leo) squared Saturn (Scorpio), mostly it was a “good time” because of the positions of Venus and Jupiter. Those days have moved on, you made whatever decisions you needed to make, and you did or did not take whatever action on those decisions.
We (and others) discussed Saturn in Scorpio a number of times, starting in 2012. Some posts include these:
- Saturn in Scorpio: The Power of Mutual Reception
- Saturn Enters Scorpio (2012)
- Shedding the Old (Circa June 2015)
- It Might Get Weird (Circa June 11, 2015)
- Return of Saturn in Scorpio (aka “Cruel Summer”)
- Saturn Direct in Scorpio (Circa July 2015)
But, that window has closed, Saturn has entered…

I’ve just finished reading a splendid article in the Oct/Nov issue of The Mountain Astrologer by Michelle Adler. It is the first detailed and insightful article I have ever read on the subject of 29° of a sign. There is very little written on the internet about this critical degree of the zodiac. What information there is on the topic tends to one-sentence descriptions, all saying the same stale thing in the exact same words.
Michelle has done thorough and original research on the topic, and her 3000 word article is loaded with example charts of well-known people whose charts and lives illustrate the truth of her conclusions.
Briefly, some of her findings are that these are unusual individuals who think in new and futuristic ways, whose careers and contributions push the boundaries of the known and conventional thinking. They tend to have unusual abilities…

Just a small note.
So as not to make you think you’re seeing things, I have added a “Backlots on the Web” section to the sidebar. In this section I have added a button leading to Backlots’ Twitter page and, after much ethical and moral deliberation, a PayPal button.
Times are tough for everyone, and classic film fans have recently been hit with a small 1929 with Netflix’s nearly 2-fold price hike. I completely understand if funding a classic film blog is low on your priorities list, but the button is there if you want to throw this author a bone–you can contribute as little or as much as you would like. Please know that your comments mean just as much to me, and Backlots will continue to operate as usual. The only difference is that the button will be there if a reader wants to make a financial contribution.

1308: Duns Scotus dies. He was a philosopher and theologian from whom we get ‘dunce’, on account of later ridiculing of his ideas, but the general consensus seems to be that he was a very intelligent thinker. Gerard Manley Hopkins admired him, and wrote a poem, ‘Duns Scotus’s Oxford‘, about the city where both men studied.
