Horoscope for the Week of October 26, 2003

25 October 2003

Tip of the Week:

Scorpio is the sign associated with death & rebirth, sex, taxes, psychology, processes and deep union of any kind wherein individuality experiences a melt down, so to speak, into a more inclusive whole. Other key words for Scorpio include the following: intense, passionate, proud, secretive, obsessive, determination, competition, hidden resources and wealth etcetera.

At even deeper levels, Scorpio represents the dual desires of people. One side of this duality is ego desire and the other is soul desire. Within this model, we can understand much of the complexity and confusion of life. The ego, of its nature, is oriented towards a sense of individuality and of separateness. The ego is the instinctual side that is oriented towards comfort, familiarity and security. While these ambitions are fair enough, at worst the ego is fear-based.

The soul, of its nature, is aware of the essential unity of all people and life in general. The soul is the 'knower' that knows where we are coming from, where we are going to in terms of destiny, that knows the laws of nature and spirit as well as 'the plan' both on an individual as well as collective levels. The soul is the fearless, enthusiastic side of our nature. In a sense, the ego is immature and the soul is mature.

These two apparent sides, the ego and the soul, tend to be in conflict. We live in a world and during times that are very ego based, it seems. Inevitably, the soul wins because it is the essential aspect of us all that lives and evolves beyond time and space. Surrender to the soul is the path of the mystic, of spirituality and of peace.

Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 20)

Sometimes in order to achieve our wants and desires we must get out of our own way. A good word for this is receptiveness. It also is about being here now without expectation or the need for things to be as they were. Breaking old patterns of behavior is as natural as autumn and the waning moon. It takes courage and strength to rise above security reactions. Trust that whatever is happening it has a purpose. Tune in and intend to consciously let go into the flow.

Taurus (Apr 21 - May 20)

Deepening bonds on relationship fronts is a central theme now. To this end, you may find yourself doing some reading and/or research as to how to connect more fully and deeply. This is true whether on romantic, business or other relationship fronts. Balancing independence with recognition of how much you need others is ideal. By honoring the rights, power and authority of others, your own has a clearer chance for expression. Let go into greater unity and cooperation.

Gemini (May 21 - Jun 20)

The biggest problem with having a daily routine is that it stands to become a rut. A routine is effective for productivity and security, yet creativity is closely associated with change. Too much routine creates depression and even despair. Let the same old flow shake. Invite possibility and even disruption and ending into your life as though they are the maids, you have been requesting. Let go of thinking about how things could and should be. Breathe deeply and recognize that change is reality and control is illusion.

Cancer (Jun 21 - Jul 21)

An urge to express your self creatively and to play is now here. This may well include learning new skills. In some respects, you need a healthy amount of competition to give you the impetus to assert. Beyond winning and losing is playing and creating and these are the true goals. Believing in yourself fully without taking your self or whatever you are doing too seriously is the key. Play with intentions as well as current events. This includes writing down your goals, dreams and desires. Push through and beyond the opposition, whether it is inside or outside of you.

Leo (Jul 22 - Aug 21)

Staying close to home where you can feel who you are and what you need at this stage of the game is the call now. Create healthy boundaries to assure that you will get the quiet time that you need. Otherwise, you may end up growling in the den at your cubs and mate and disrupting the very peace, you need. Beyond a meditative and tranquil environment, aim for a productive flow based on research and planning. This time-period may well work much better this way than trying to assert your self in the world. Be quiet now and get going. .

Virgo (Aug 22 - Sep 23)

Journeys in body and mind are in the spotlight now. This could mean traveling or surfing the net or going to the library or attending meeting and workshops and engaging in a lot of correspondences. In nay case, the challenge is to balance your need to assert your self with diplomatic action. This is one of those times to accept that "you cannot please all the people all the time". Intend to gently push and persevere to achieve your goals. Besides, if you do not meet with your inner need and desire everyone will end up losing in the end. Assert your truth.

Libra (Sep 23 - Oct 21)

Sometimes in order to build and fortify our foundation we must be willing to eliminate the old one and replace it with something new. This applies to you mental and emotional life as well as your physical. Lighten the load and create a more streamlined approach. Possessions and things have their place but can prove to be a burden. This same is true of fixed ideas and feelings. What do you really need as opposed to merely want? Breathe deeply and focus upon letting go of all non-essentials. This will both liberate you from the past and make room for more stuff. Intend to travel light and free!

Scorpio (Oct 22 - Nov 20)

With the Sun now in your sign this is a pioneering time for you. The basic challenge here is to have an idea of which direction to pursue. Whatever your direction, keep in mind that trying to achieve your goals alone at this time will not work so well. However, you may need to take the initiative to engage the cooperation and assistance of others. You are still in a learning curve and this will continue for another couple of years. Take an experimental approach with the intention of learning by experience. The inspiration to be creative will occur once you get going!

Sagittarius (Nov 21 - Dec 20)

Your turn has come to take some needed downtime. This might simply include more sleep and less action and expression. Alternatively, you could achieve a lot simply by having a focus and quietly following through. Alternatively, this is a good time to allow your dreams to guide your vision. While night dreams do count, your dreams about creating in reality are the real goal. Decipher what you feel you truly desire and clarify your findings by outlining them. Give your higher, magical mind something to really work on for you.

Capricorn (Dec 21 - Jan 19)

The focus now is upon group stimulation towards creative inventiveness. This could mean getting inspiration from actual involvements and/or the desire to invent something that will meet a collective need. To succeed you may well have to push through and beyond resistances. These may be external and/or internal. Acting with determination and breaking though lines of opposition are a big part of your destiny. Commit to exercising your creativity on behalf of a greater need and your heart will open inspiring you with even more creativity.

Aquarius (Jan 20 - Feb 19)

Opportunities to assert your personal power in the world are available to you now. This is a good time to approach authority figures for favors and earned rewards. Establishing a new base of operations and or home may well be a part of the scenario. In some respects, you want to feel freer and more fluid so you can flow more smoothly. This implies being true to what you want and need rather than trying to live up to external norms and expectations. Inheritance and returns from other sources are also likely. Is it time to cash in your chips?

Pisces (Feb 20 - Mar 20)

An expansive yet intense period continues. Things are not as they were a short while ago and your challenge is to create a realistic and inspiring vision worth following. To this end, you do better to stay as flexible as possible as the vision you are creating stands to be edited and rewritten. This is a pioneering time for you and changes in your overall mode of expression are simmering. These changes will become more apparent by the early New Year. In the meantime, trust that the flux has its own reasons and do not take things personally. Be present in the moment and accept the crazy flow.
