In less than two weeks, the Sun will take its yearly sojourn through the sign of Scorpio. This feminine, fixed water sign is ruled by Pluto and co-ruled by Mars. There is an intensity to this sign and, because of its rulership by Pluto (also known as Hades), it is said to deal with death, rebirth and transformation.
On the positive side, Scorpio has powerful feelings, is highly imaginative, persistent and determined. There is a negative side to Scorpio, like any other side, and this can include being jealous, resentful, stubborn, secretive and suspicious.
Tell anyone you’re a Scorpio and they usually jump to the conclusion that sex is the only thing on your mind. The truth is there’s a peculiar intensity that permeates the whole personality giving Scorpios a strong sense of purpose and the determination to do nothing halfway. It’s all or nothing for most Scorpios.
The jealousy that a Scorpio may feel is not limited to areas of love. If someone holds a position to which they feel entitled, Scorpio jealousy will motivate them to dislike that person or even act cruelly.
Scorpios have great personal magnetism and are highly intuitive. They also have an analytical mind and a strong sense of perception, but it’s the intuition that is often their best guide when deciding how best to handle a problem.
Scorpios make good psychiatrists, psychologists, detectives, psychics, spiritual healers, pharmacist, undertakers and even criminals. They are happiest when they feel their work is really important. What can be more important than helping others transform their lives?
There’s a New Moon in Libra happening on Monday, October 12th at 8:06pm EDT. Hmmmm…New Moon in Libra…could this be an opportunity to bring balance and harmony to relationships? Or, perhaps, seek out new harmonious partnerships?
With the Sun and Moon in Libra, there can be too much reliance on others and an inability to move forward spontaneously. Made aware of this, if we use the clear perception, also offered by this combination, we can achieve that harmony and balance within ourselves and with others as well.
Libra doesn’t bring balance and harmony but offers us the opportunity to achieve it, if we are willing to do what it takes. This can be in any area of ones life and not necessarily involve relationships with others, but rather, our relationship with ourselves.
So, if you believe in using New Moons for new beginnings, this affable, courteous, sociable, well-disposed energy invites us to tap into it to begin a journey into balance and harmony in any way, with any one you choose.
On Friday, October 23rd at 1:47pm EDT, the Sun does finally enter Scorpio. What can I say that I haven’t already said?
It is during this time of the Sun in Scorpio that the Veil between the worlds is the thinnest. It is now that the spirits of those who have gone before us have the best chance to let us know they still watch over us and miss us, as we miss them.
Scorpio is about the invisible realms – the places where the dead have passed to and await rebirth. Even for us, the living, this can be a time of death and rebirth, a time of transformation, as we now enter the time of introspection as Winter approaches. The mystery of life is pondered and enlightenment can be gained.
Yes, Scorpio, you are intense and you have much to teach all of us.
To all who have a birthday during this time…
That’s it for now. See you in two weeks! May all your new beginnings be enlightening and joyful!
