Hail the Scorpio Sun

The sun stretches into Scorpio territory now, joining Mercury and Saturn in this mysterious realm. This is a time to probe the more profound aspects of life. Even though we may never get a definitive answer to questions about the nature of life and death, we are richer for pondering the possibilities.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). If you’re going to be a fighter, you have to accept that getting knocked out is a real possibility. The best fighters protect themselves by keeping their gloves up.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You’ll practice hard and develop skills. You do this because you want to improve, but also because you truly care about the group and want to serve them to the best of your ability.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You are there for a friend who is suffering — that’s a no-brainer as far as you’re concerned. Being there for a friend who is enjoying a rich success will be a good deal harder.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Everybody needs love. But you’re not going to beg for it or go around saying “love me.” Your ways are dignified. By loving yourself, you teach others to do the same.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You sense that you are protected. When you don’t know what to do, life fills in the blanks for you, or helps you out with a few excellent suggestions. It’s as though the fates are rooting for you.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Think about what you’ve been repeating lately and whether it’s really good for you. It is far easier to fall into a habit than to get out of it, especially when that habit is supported by the other elements of your lifestyle.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). The one who suggested that “you can’t be a friend to everybody” just doesn’t know you very well. You give people a rare quality of attention. It doesn’t take a lot of time to make a person feel seen and understood.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You’ll observe someone you admire. You wouldn’t want to be just like this person, but there is a side of your personality that resonates with what this person is doing. It’s worth further exploration.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). In order to take pride in what you do, you first have to do something you can be proud of. Today you begin a cycle of behavior you’ll later be honored for.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You are fine with a job well done, but you still expect yourself to do a little better the next time and still better the time after that. Raising the bar is just what you do.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Today there will be many around you who are worthy of your attention. You will take action to help someone, and because of this action, some part of you will live on.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Since your success will depend on your level of determination, it follows that you should choose projects that are so interesting that you can’t help but feel compelled to finish them.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Oct. 23). You have more patience and are therefore able to make and execute long-term plans, the likes of which have a big payoff in the end. You will top a performance record when you take advantage of a November opportunity. December focuses on your thriving personal life. May and June are the best times to invest. Taurus and Leo people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 49, 26, 41, 38 and 2.

SCORPIO SUN LIFE LIST: The Scorpio sun is conducive to doing things you might not think to do at other times of the year. There’s a certain intensity that comes with this soulful passage and a mood that drives people to discovery. So how is the passionate energy of the next four weeks best applied? Consider adding one or two of these ideas to your list:

1. Uncover a family mystery. 2. Go deeper into certain aspects of a religion. 3. Think of the world as it was 100 years before you were born. 4. Dream about what the world will be like 100 years after you die. 5. Write an appreciative love letter to your mother. 6. Change your radio station to absorb a different kind of music from that which you already appreciate. 7. Solve a crime. 8. Love someone you’ve known a long time in a new and deeper way. 9. Give up some aspect of media or technology to which you’ve become too addicted. 10. Consider different lifestyles and what it would be like to live them. (You don’t have to make any changes; just thinking about them might be enough to broaden your horizons.)

CELEBRITY PROFILES: In true Scorpio style, movie star Ryan Reynolds married the lovely “Gossip Girl” star Blake Lively in a wedding so secret that new details are still coming out about it one year later. Reynolds was born under a Scorpio moon, too, and to top that off, his natal Mars and Uranus are both in the mysterious sign of the scorpion. His love of privacy is epic!
