If you follow me on Twitter @AstrologyZone, you already know what I will share with you now.
Last April I was suddenly affected by a debilitating auto-immune condition that my specialist doctors have been treating. However, on a routine visit to my doctor on October 14, my doctor saw that the new medicine I was being given over the past six weeks was causing me to have enormous nausea (to the extent that I lost 8 pounds in one week), and that I was catching increasingly virulent infections. (To do their job, biologics lower your immunity.) To my surprise, he ordered me to go to the hospital directly where he was reserving a room for me that day. I was not to go home, even to pack a little bag. He said I was struggling too much since last April, and he wanted his team at the New York City teaching hospital to study me in detail. Tests and procedures were being done, but before any new medicine could be given to me, I had to be infection-free, which was harder to do with the one I had than I had anticipated - it took ten days to get rid of the infection with a change of antibiotics mid-course. I was in the hospital 13 days in all.
My doctor told me it was critical that they find another medicine that worked better for me quickly to end the steady suffering I was going through, and to do that he had to closely study my reactions. My computer and iPhone were locked away safely in a locker - I was to have a complete rest. He put me in the acute care wing, where I could only see very few visitors - my daughter came twice and my assistant on two other days. I was on only juice and saline drips, along with nutrients also given to me intravenously too, such as iron. Needless to say, I worried about the time I was losing, but I was so weak, all I could do is sleep as the world whizzed around me in a blur. I am home now, and very happy to see sunlight (my room had no windows). I go for little walks, but feel safer to go with a friend. This month's forecast is short, but will give you all you need. I expect to be back to my old self by December. Next month I will give you the long report you are used to seeing, and that I so enjoy writing.
In New York we say, you can have "good, fast, or cheap" - and to pick any two. Since my monthly column is my gift to you, I had to choose between fast or very lengthy, which would take many days. I know you like to get your forecast quickly (the chorus on Twitter made that clear), so I decided to give you a short but timely forecast rather than make you wait. I am still getting my strength back, but since I can eat gentle but very nutritious foods now, I am rebounding my energy quicker than I thought possible. I am not out of the woods yet by any means, and I so appreciate your support during this tough time for me. I am happy that my doctor and I got closer to a solid answer for me, and that I was able to give up the biologic medicine that was making me so sick that I couldn't eat or even think. I have a new biologic, and we are holding our breath - it seems great, but we need a bit more time to see if I will build up antibodies against it. I am steroid-free too, for it has done its job, and I no longer need it. Everything seems better. If you pray, please do say a prayer for me. My doctor says the aim is to keep me out of the hospital operating room - and so far, I think I have a very good chance of meeting that goal! Thank you, dear reader!
Taurus Forecast for November 2014
By Susan Miller
Last month you experienced a solar new moon eclipse in your house of marriage, highlighting your partner. That eclipse was sure to benefit you in one way or another. As you begin November, you will be thinking about your closest partner, and if things have frustrated you about the relationship, you will be moved to make things right. Still, you may have been down this road before with the same question, and so your patience will not last forever. You've had Saturn, the planet that teaches us life lessons, in your marriage and commitment house for two long years, and if you've been waiting for a commitment and a ring, and if that does not materialize soon, when Saturn makes an exit next month on December 23, you will too. Although it may look to you as though life will remain frustrating and arduous, you could not be more wrong. You are closer to happiness than ever before, so listen to your instinct, and have faith you know what is best.
If you are attached and happy, you both will enter into an easier phase very soon. Consider taking a long trip overseas together, to a place near breathtaking mountains - the French Alps perhaps - and be sure to make it to a place you've never been. An inspiring experience that you can both experience together would boost your relationship and help you weave a tapestry of love. If travel is not an option, you may decide to make a commitment to go back to the university and begin taking classes toward a degree. While it may not be possible to go full time, you can begin by taking a few classes that will add up to a degree in time.
The full moon this month, November 6, will be in Taurus, the only one of the year, and help you to clarify what you need most in life to be happy. You have been focused on others all year, but at this full moon, it's time to put yourself first. Pluto will be very supportive of this full moon, and because Pluto has transformative abilities, you may add something new in your life that you'd like to add, to refresh, and jumpstart your life.
Your home, property, and family will continue to be your luckiest and happiest areas of your life now. If you need to move, hope to renovate, or buy an important piece of furniture, you can. Do your research and be ready to investigate your options soon, as you have Jupiter in your fourth house of home for the first time in twelve years, a privilege that began in July and that will go until August 2015. Don't let that time run between your fingers - make it work for you, in large or small ways.
Jupiter will help you create your dream home, so if you need a mortgage, put in your application just after the new moon November 22 for best results. Saturn will be conjunct that new moon of November 22, so make sure your paperwork is correct, for any mathematical inaccuracies may detract from your eligibility to win a mortgage with attractive terms. January would be an ideal month to begin actual work on your property, with the idea of having your project wrapped up by the full moon in your home sector February 3, 2015. Leo, the sign that the planet of good fortune, Jupiter, is touring in, is considered the royal sign, so you can create a home that truly is your castle.
Dates to Note for TAURUS
Luckiest days for luck but also for other purposes in your life: November 1, 3, 6, 10, 15, 16, 21, 24, 26, and 29.
A good day to address finances with your banker, a venture capitalist or financial advisor would be November 3.
Your big day will be the full moon in Taurus, November 6, the annual cosmic gift from a loving universe. You can see a plan very dear to your heart reach fruition.
Your social life will start to percolate after Neptune turns direct on November 15. Neptune has been retrograde since June 10, so this will be a welcome change in months ahead.
Tough days for real estate actions will be November 17-18. You may feel exhausted by events and news.
A man near you may have health difficulties on November 17. Be there for him. You may feel this is an arduous time, so get enough rest.
The new moon of November 22 will bring up money talks and plans. Saturn will conjoin the Sun, so in coming weeks, you'll need your Taurus propensity to be very realistic.
Venus rules your sign, and on November 26, Venus will receive a surprise beam from Uranus. Money may suddenly make its way to you. It's a great day. Home and property news also shines as well as news about a parent.

P.S. for November 2014
My New Apps for Android, Samsung Galaxy, and iPhone are Ready to Download!
Last January, Phunware met with me and we set out to design a completely new app for AstrologyZone readers. We have a free version and an optional paid subscription version for Google's Android and Samsung Galaxy, just like the iPhone readers experienced approximately a year ago.
My new app has a completely new, sleeker design and many new features. You will still have a free daily horoscope, or if you prefer to subscribe, a much longer daily horoscope. The long version is the one most readers prefer. The new applications work with iOS 7.0+ and Android OS 4.0+. If you are already a subscriber to my app on your iPhone, the new design will just slide in to replace the old design when you updated your app. If you have a Samsung Galaxy smart phone, you use the Android operating system, so you will get the new design too. The bugs in the iPhone are all fixed, no more signing in each time you check your forecast, and the tools section for subscribers, the prettiest section, is working flawlessly now. Android/ Samsung Galaxy were bug-free from day one, so go get my app in either one of our retailers, Google Play or Apple App Store, depending on your smart phone type. Search: "Susan Miller."
A feature of my new apps is that each app will automatically expand or shrink to fit your other devices, whether iPad or tablet, or any size smart phone you choose, large screen or small. These newly designed applications have kept screen real estate in mind, allowing users with phones or tablets to get a fully optimized experience for their device screen size. The iPhone 6 is now out, and my app will beautifully translate to that new screen size as well. Keep in mind that you are purchasing a subscription to my app from Apple or Google as retailers, not from us at Astrology Zone. I get a commission on the purchase price of the subscription you buy.
Whether you choose the free version of my app or choose to subscribe to the premium version, either way you will still always have your monthly Astrology Zone report on your phone, and my previous month's report as well. You can check all twelve signs of the daily or monthly horoscopes too by simply going to the home screen and choosing a different sign. The new apps will list my appearances too, but so far, I have no appearances on my schedule, but that might change in time, and if it does, you will be able to see where I will be immediately. Until now, only readers who went to their computers online would know in what city I would have new events. You can also see my Twitter feed on your mobile device too. The designs for Android and iOS are consistent; you get the same visual design and features for either application.
I would appreciate you taking the time to review my app, for I will read all your comments. I am grateful that sales of the premium subscription are so strong, for this allows me to keep Astrology Zone free. Thank you for your support and understanding while I recover from my illness.
Live Overseas? Or, don't have an iPhone, Android, or Samsung Galaxy?
Get all 12 of my daily horoscopes each day by email or pick yours up each day on special password-protected site.
To plan ahead, receive several daily horoscopes in advance!
By subscribing to DailyAstrologyZone you will receive a week of horoscopes inside your cell phone and / or computer. This means if you have a BlackBerry or feature flip phone, you can still get my daily horoscopes as long as your device accepts email. You will also have the option of accessing your daily horoscopes from a website online, from anywhere, any time, through a password-protected site for members only, or receiving all 12 signs my email each day.

A COMPLETELY NEW WAY TO FIND LOVE ONLINE WITH DREAMCLIQ.COM
I have partnered with a new online dating site Dreamcliq.com, an entirely new way to meet people. We all know how hard it is to write personal descriptions. Dreamcliq is doing something new: users create visual profiles to easily express what they love. Instead of awkward written descriptions of yourself, you can use images to express who you are and what you love in style, art, travel, design, and entertainment. You will click on photographs that express the real you, and the process is fun. If you see someone that interests you when looking at the photographs they chose to express themselves, you can read my previews of your Sun sign's compatibility with the person you are interested in contacting. Just remember, all signs can get along with any other sign, for if love is there, the stars will open a path!
As a special gift to all my readers, you will receive 10 free cliqs to use on Dreamcliq.com when you sign up using this special access link.

This promotion on Dreamcliq is open to all my readers, male and female, straight and gay. Everyone of every sign is invited. Sign up - you have nothing to lose and everything to gain. When CEO of Dreamcliq Melissa Jones came to me with her idea sketched on paper a year ago, I didn't know her yet, but I was so impressed with her originality and intelligence, I knew immediately I wanted to work with Melissa. The media has reviewed her brand new site, and the rave reviews are in. You can see them as you explore the site.
To learn more about love and astrology, read my article on Dreamcliq's blog. I have lots to say in my essay about love and how astrology works to help you find love, so be sure to scroll down to catch all that I wrote. You may find my words helpful as you embark on your new adventure to find love. I love Dreamcliq because by choosing from images for your profile, you reveal your personality in an artistic way that is honest, stylish, and exciting. Give it a try!
A New and Important Book on Fashion and Style:
"365 Style" by Nicky Hilton
Wow! Amazon tells me you bought SO many copies of Nicky Hilton's book in October!
I love Nicky's book too! Here is my review in case you missed it last month!
There are many books on the market on fashion and style, and I admit, I have bought many of them. In this new book being published September 15, Nicky Hilton, designer, author, entrepreneur, daughter of Rick and Kathy Hilton, and sister of Paris, has created a completely original, honest, and remarkably wise book on style. It comes complete with many color photographs, and in it Nicky shows you ways you can upgrade your own fashion style from good to style icon level. The goal is to sharpen your personal style by looking within, not by copying someone else's style. Nicky gets you started by showing you some of her favorite style icons, but only to get you thinking. She gives many stories and examples from her own life, and she makes you enthusiastic about going through your own wardrobe to find ways to amp it up. The title of the book refers to Nicky's suggestion that you consider 3 aspects of your lifestyle, and choose 6 staple items of clothing and 5 essential accessories. Doing that will instantly get you a stylish starting point.
Nicky has attended all the fabulous fashion shows in New York, Paris, Milan, and more in her young years, but her advice is down to earth and certainly does not require you have a trust fund. Just the opposite, her tone is one of a best friend going through your closet and handing you advice that is at times funny but always wise. Certainly a lot of what Nicky says makes you think. In one chapter, she advises, "Always dress like you are going to meet your worst enemy" (i.e, bumping into the ex-boyfriend who betrayed you, or the mean girl in high school who made your freshman year a terror.) Nicky gives many examples of her own life and shows how running into that old boyfriend looking like a million because she had taken just a little extra time with her appearance on the way to meet girlfriends for a casual Mexican dinner gave her a happy boost during that unexpected nano-second on-the-street encounter.
With each page, you will rethink your own wardrobe and habits, and occasionally Nicky will casually toss out the very advice you needed most. When it happens, you will feel like you were hit by a thunderbolt. I enjoyed her advice about dressing for a first date, meeting his parents, and more, and all along she gives you many vignettes that allow you to see her own lifestyle. Those peeks into her own life allow you to understand why she has the authority and experience in her early thirties to write this wonderful jewel of a book.
She has advice on such things as:
- The $30 wardrobe item you can't live without.
- The one closet accessory that keeps everything organized at all times.
- Five must-have wardrobe items, all affordable.
- How to pack a suitcase like a jet-setter.
I feel you will enjoy this book and get much from it. Just click here to order your copy:
If you ordered my book, you can get you money back in full. Please email Arthur at Arthur@AmericaDirectBook.com with your full address and phone number, or call Arthur at 914.271.2640.
I had asked my publisher not to advertise the book until it was written as a policy, but Arthur, being the optimist that he is, did anyway. I am very sorry. You can get all your money back.
