The Sun is now in Scorpio . . .

Scorpio is a fascinating sign, full of contradictions and intensity. They are healers and mystics as well as the occasional nasty piece of work. People tend to love them or hate them which suits them just fine.

Here in the northern latitudes, this time is the transition between the glorious colors of Autumn and the dankness of Winter. Misty mornings and foggy evenings come more frequently, perfect for taking solitary walks and contemplating melancholy topics . . . Scorpio does enjoy that sort of thing.

The Sun will reside in Scorpio from October 23 to November 21 this year with Jupiter, Mercury and Venus all spending time in the eighth sign too. Clearing out the old to make a place for something fresh and new is under Scorpio’s aegis, and those of us who have a strong Scorpio presence in our natal charts usually understand this phenomenon quite well. We often lead lives where we can only move forward as best we can because once a door closes in our lives, there is no going back.
