The sign of Scorpio is well acquainted with fear. To feel accomplished one is inevitably faced with terror to overcome. Halloween is the time to honor the scary. We are all titillated in varying degrees by the passion and excitement of the spooky, macabre, and panic. We have to decide about a critical crisis, how much Chaos are we willing to bring into consciousness?

You are being given an opportunity to use your tremendous reserve of discipline to make dramatic changes. The key word is evolution, not revolution. Can you hold still to evolve? You will be tested with more than a little chaos. When man created fire, it became one of his earliest forms of meditation.
Isis the ancient Goddess of Egypt, sister and wife to Osiris, was devastated when her brother was cut in pieces. She retrieved all but his phallic member and put him back together. Could the Muslims feel impotent and what does that mean? Fear is the precursor to anger. Why are we to blame? Merely because we are the mightiest in the media? Mars, the God of War is terrifying. But, he is also our ability to change. Discipline is only useful with temperance, creativity and thought behind it.
Please read your rising sign, if you know it.

For most of October, your ruler is actively contemplating. This is helpful, because thought comes before action. By the end of the month you can implement your decisions. The lunar eclipse in your sign indicates tempestuous emotions with partners. Be prepared to eat humble pie with the ladies in your life.
Does unusual weather affect time? With the past winter snow days, the school year gets earlier. This phenomenon is in keeping with the theory of global warming. Time is looked at in different ways. Like the Sphinx's question. What walks on four legs in the morning, two legs at noon and three in the evening? The speed of the walking seems to be erratic. Is the wobble of the earth doing an Irish jig?

As an initiator you are given free rein this month. Children will see you as the Pied Piper. Any bonfires you start will bring folks together to enjoy the fireworks. You could be looking at borrowing money. If so, play down the drama and enforce a lengthy prospectus or proposal. Metal is your element, find a way to shape it.
Lovely Leo, is being adored by Jupiter the Magnificent. The key word is courage. Think with your heart. How often do you feel lesser than? This is the balance to observe when entitlement wars with acceptance. Theosophist Frank L Baum, wrote Wizard of Oz. He gave both the Tin Man and the Cowardly Lion the element of heart. One looks for compassion the other looks for courage. Children usually have these qualities before they grow up. Is respect anything but someone other acknowledging your presence? Within our limited bodies and brains the ability to listen and express is always in conflict. Like the masks of drama and comedy, the theater is ruled by Leo.

PL Travers once remarked that Fire makes Water boil, but Water puts out fire. You have renewed energy with your ruler moving into Scorpio. You also are stymied by the limitations of Chaos, your friend, doing a reverse tango. As the initiator, you are simmering with the need for action. The strength of the body is needed to envelope the brain.
July is the seventh month. Seven is a number that resonates. The musical scale is seven notes. The seven days of the week represent the planetary bodies observable to the eye. The week starts with the Moon on Monday, Mars on Tuesday, Mercury on Wednesday, Jupiter on Thursday, Venus on Friday (which is the Celtic Fredda) Saturday Saturn's day and Sunday for the Sun. Can you see the imagery of each story? Contemplate the day and the part of the human condition it represents.
Cancer is ruled by the moon, the Mother, the unconscious. Monday is the day to do laundry, catch up and get ready for action on Tuesday. Use July to get ready for August, ruled by the Sun and the sign of Leo, which demands consciousness.
Gemini is always creating a germ of an idea. As the sign that moves around the most, it could be likened to a bee pollinating. For most of June, Mercury is retrograde and and the trickster side of Gemini is in full force. More than usual, realize people are not saying what they mean. Instead of getting angry, be humored by the mallaprops. If travel is in your life, strike up conversations with strangers.

Thank goodness after a prolonged period of time, your ruler is moving forward again. By mid July the planning stages will be set to move into a new arena. Training is a slow process, so many elements go into becoming a focused entity. The mind and the body do not often move at the same pace. As the sign of action, stretching the body or contemplate nothingness is not your strong suit.
Taurus is the first earth sign and very solidly planted. Earth Day and Queen Elizabeth’s Birthday are both symbols of the continuity of life. The eclipse on April 29th highlights the focus of staying grounded through relentless change. Can we see death coming? Pluto in Capricorn is asking this question. Can we remember that death precedes new life? In the days of the building of the Sphinx, perhaps 10,000 years ago, the Pharaoh’s head stays strong on the lion’s body. Only in the last one hundred years have we known there was a body. And perhaps when the monument was built water surrounded the foundation. This climate change relates to fire and water, or the ongoing shifting sands.
The Cardinal Cross has shaken you up and without something to do or be active you are ready to combust. Enjoy the Merry month of May by recognizing the involuntary muscles of the earth bringing forth beauty. By the 19th you will see the future you want more clearly and prepare your budget.
