Heart of the Fall ~ the Season of Scorpio


All Signs
The Sun has moved into intense Scorpio as we enter the heart of the fall season. Mercury has just gone direct (phew!) and the pace of our days gets back on track. Mars slips into Capricorn encouraging us to work hard, and Hallowe’en is right around the corner (the ultimate Scorpio holiday!). Many of us feel the need to go inward and reflect on this past year. It’s a time to consider our current wants, needs, and aspirations. This is an excellent opportunity to think about how to implement strategies that will help us achieve our goals (even subtle changes can have lasting effects). We emerge from this time feeling stronger and more optimistic about the coming year ahead.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

It’s a meaningful time for you, Aries. At a deep level changes are taking root and altering the way you see this world. You’re eager to reshape your path in subtle ways and you’re more in touch with your long-term goals now. Relationships with others can offer you an incredible vehicle to learn more about yourself and what you want out of life. Give some thought to your value systems and those of others (it’s ok to be different). Don’t twist yourself into a pretzel to meet the needs of others if it isn’t working for you. What are the connections and relationships you want to invest in?

Joint financial decisions or areas where your responsibilities are intertwined with others are likely to arise. You’re in a good place to be diplomatic and consider everyone’s point of view.

It’s likely that your work environment or the day-to-day activities on the job front improve somehow. This is a good time to throw your hat in the ring for a job or position that you’ve been eyeing. Dinners out, social engagements, and industry parties are calling your name.Lucky days:

(You like to be prepared don’t you?) Romantic relationships can be intense and powerful. You’re eager to understand your partner better, especially through lovemaking.
