Scorpio The Phoenix (Oct. 23-Nov. 20)
Mars, your ruling planet, shifts your attention on the 16th to fresh territory. During the next six weeks, your activities and feelings will be intensified in the life sector related to vehicles, short distance travels, errands, communications, education, your neighborhood and siblings.
For All Signs: Chiron was the name given to a particularly special centaur in the Pantheon of Greek gods. Early in his history, he was a misplaced soul, abandoned by both parents and a renegade from the norm, even within his species. He made a place for himself in the Pantheon by developing surgical techniques and medicine. He adopted an avocation of gathering whatever other mismatched and peculiar creatures he found and helping them to define and develop their own skills so they would have a niche in that world. He is known as the "wounded healer" of physical and emotional pain. This week he turns direct after a five-month retrograde period in the underworld. The shift of motion suggests that we will become conscious of whatever diseases we have, whether that be emotional or physical, over the next several months.
Aries: Between now and the end of the year, your attention will be drawn to career and life direction. Activity in the outer world picks up speed. Authorities and others may be challenging. Be prepared to defend your initiatives.
Taurus: Warning to those on diet and exercise programs: This week it is just too easy to break training. If you mean what you've promised to yourself, don't go anywhere in which you would be in harm's way. It is a time in which you feel more outgoing and extroverted.
Gemini: This is a week in which much of your time and attention will be absorbed by children or lovers. You choose which is the more likely. It is possible that you will feel compelled to return to relationship(s) or project(s) left undone from the past.
Cancer: You have been considering how to fairly share your resources with your progeny. This week brings an epiphany that blows away all your previous ideas. You will want to generate a discussion among the group, if possible.
Leo: Give special attention to new messages or to new people who enter your life during this time. A "teacher" crosses your path in the form of a person, a book or a message that will steer you in the next favorable direction. This is worth some research.
Virgo: Suddenly you feel the need to back out of a decision recently made. There is nothing wrong with this. It is important and worth giving a full re-evaluation before you materialize changes.
Libra: You may be learning about when is a good thing "too much" to handle. Travel is favored, along with connections per the Internet or long distance contacts. Sometimes even the best of things can grow like a balloon until they take up all the space in your life.
Sagittarius: You may discover that you are reluctant to follow through with decisions you have recently made. It is OK. It is important you think these plans over carefully. Perhaps they need to be reorganized. Meanwhile, relationship and social life are in an upswing.
Capricorn: Mars, the warrior, is entering your sign this week. You want to take initiatives, fix problems and generally take leadership. However, just for this week, these desires are countered by other planets (circumstances or people) who throw gravel in your path. Don't give up on your goals. This is only temporary.
Aquarius: You have two clear signals, "wait" and "go." The "wait" signal is related to vehicles, siblings, neighbors and roommates. No matter how you push forward, you cannot make anything happen. The "go" signal suggests you need to take charge of a program or plan that will help many people move forward.
Pisces: Please note the lead paragraph because Chiron is turning direct in your sign. For the next seven months, you will be given the consciousness to find better ways to care for yourself, both physically and emotionally. If you have been doing unconscious harm to yourself, the truth will come to light and give you the opportunity to be set free.
