Scorpio The Phoenix
Whatever the circumstances of your life at present, it is all coming together for the purpose of your transformation. It may not be at all easy. Scorpio rarely takes the simple route. You can choose denial for a long time, but ultimately the Scorpio must develop and practice psychological honesty.
For All Signs: We are encountering a major conjunction of Pluto and the North Node of the Moon. It is interesting that this occurs as we move through an election month. Both of these bodies point toward a heavy vote for the traditional big business and corporate power. The aspect is strong enough to "elect" many on the radical right. Although it is a challenge to recognize, that which develops this month is in the path of the "supposed to be." This is true on a global and personal level. Perhaps it is time that we experience the consequences of leaning heavily to the right. The times overall are volatile and dramatic political shifts are a part of it.
Aries: During this month a political drama will have significant effects upon you personally. The election is one of those possible situations. Mainly this message is coming to you through whomever is an authority in your life, and that could be a political situation at work. You are not the cause here, but mainly one who experiences the fallout of changes around you.
Taurus: Everything for you is about the topic of relationship(s) at this time. You may have recently backed off of one significant relationship. This week you likely will have an opportunity to step back into it. Consider whether or not it is wise to rush back in so quickly. Maybe you need another two to three weeks to simmer.
Gemini: There may be both good news and disappointing news this week. The good news concerns your career or your work in the world which gains some recognition. The bad news is related to the areas of travel or the law. Circumstances in those areas are delayed or confused. Time will resolve it.
Cancer: There may be a major drama concerning your partner or significant other(s) in your life during this period. You want to make yourself available to help in any way you can. For some there will be inalterable changes that eventually create openings for development of a new life direction. If this is to be so, you already know what it is to be.
Leo: Normally your attention is riveted on home, hearth and family at this time. You are usually cleaning up debris so you can prepare for the holidays to come. This year you may be distracted by the concern about an absentee member who has withdrawn from the usual activities. You can't do anything about this and you are not guilty. It simply must play out.
Virgo: Teaching, writing and education are favored at this time. Use your intuition and go with the flow of your mind. The caveat issue is that you are probably much more sensitive to what others think right now. Don't ask anyone else to evaluate you or critique your work. Wait until you are finished with your creative efforts.
Libra: You have been in deep thought about the direction of your life. During this season there may be important changes in your family that affect your thinking process. Although it may not be a family member per se, the shift of perspective may be tied to how you see yourself in the framework of your family of origin.
Sagittarius: Mars, the aggressor planet, continues to ride in your hip pocket as you travel through the days. Use his energy if you need to set boundaries around you or cut something out of your life. On Nov. 8, Mercury enters your sign for the following three weeks. There likely will be greater emphasis on communications, errands and other short-distance travels.
Capricorn: Although it is out of character, you may be prone to extremism over the next month. People are listening to you and your personality has impact. Use this power very carefully and remember that the best path is usually that of moderation for everyone involved. Confide in those close to you before you take a step in the direction of major drama.
Aquarius: Keep your attention fastened on the higher path this week. Otherwise your mind could be drawn down into worry or dark imaginings. Find someone who is in need and give them a helping hand. Enjoy the imagination of others, i.e., in books, movies or plays. It is OK to treat oneself now and then, when we feel a little blue.
Pisces: This week aspects favor the expression of your opinions and beliefs. You may have fortunate circumstances related to the Internet, travel and publishing. Help and information comes from those at a distance. Meanwhile you are concerned about a personal secret. Now is the time to think carefully about a plan to reduce its impact.
