Scorpio (Oct 23 – Nov 21)
Scorpio is the 8th sign of the Zodiac, the second of the Water Signs – after Cancer and before Pisces, is of Fixed Quality and is ruled by both Mars and Pluto. The Scorpion is the Zodiac glyph for Scorpio and it represents potency and assertiveness. Scorpio is concerned with investigating the inner realities, riches, resources and powers of reality and is symbolically linked to psychology – especially depth psychology, self-mastery, hypnosis, research, investigation, dissection & autopsy, severance, mystery, quantum physics, nuclear power, power in general, transformation, hidden realities, mining, drilling, esotericism, the occult, cover-ups, sex, the reproductive and eliminatory organs, death and rebirth, adoption, taxes, mergers, inheritances, banks, insurance & joint and shared resources, melting pots, privacy and conservatism and secret organizations. Clearly Scorpio is a deep and complex sign of extremes. Alternatively, psychological pathology, ruthless ambition, calculating vice, organized crime and hidden and deceptive control of others, espionage, conspiracy, exclusivity, elitism, secrecy, gangs and gangsters, weapons and violence, are common issues. Psychologists, researchers, surgeons, doctors, plumbers, butchers, designers, undertakers, bankers, investors, insurance agents, investigators, editors, chemical engineers, computer programmers, prospectors and esotericists are some of the more common occupations for Scorpio.
Famous Scorpio personalities that depict the sign include:
- Bill Gates – Microsoft
- Hillary Clinton - Politician, Lawyer, Presidential Candidate
- Carl Sagan – Astronomer
Recent Horoscopes for this Sun Sign:
The focus has shifted to relationship fronts. The past few weeks have perhaps been edgy and complicated. At best, you have been able to focus on achieving precision. At worst, perfectionistic and critical attitudes have caused some casualty. Avoid trying to control and change others and redirect these energies to yourself.
You have probably been working fairly hard of late. Expect your mood to shift this week. You are ready for more social activity and perhaps some romance too. The danger now is that you will think more than you perhaps should and act less than you may wish you did. Coming back to this moment now, connect with the one(s) you love.
Circumstances are pushing you to work a little harder these days. These efforts include making key changes in your own usual approach. Take nothing for granted now, especially how you usually do things. Others may be playing the role of instigator. ‘Don’t shoot the messenger.’ Receive the message and learn the lesson.
Taking new initiatives in your overall lifestyle is likely now. The more challenging end includes whether significant others can or will adapt. The politics could prove complex for a few weeks anyway. Appeasing others without betraying what is true for you is an important challenge to recognize and overcome.
