- Incredible breakthroughs are possible
If we’re talking about Scorpio and its ruler Pluto then we are talking about power, rebirth and transformation and this week these themes are going to dominate for all of us no matter what our birth sign is.
On the 23rd the Sun enters Scorpio. Start to associate this incredibly deep and transformative sign with its original symbol – the phoenix. The present day one of the scorpion which has done much to give Scorpios an undeserved bad rep is a recent adaptation. When we consider the mythological story of the phoenix – the golden bird that is re-born from the ashes again and again, this is a much better metaphor for a sign which is adept at rebirth and reinvention.
Scorpio rules power – both appropriate use of it and its flip side – abuse. If you have ever been in a relationship where issues around power, manipulation, domination or control were present this was a Scorpionic/Pluto influenced relationship much may have had karmic roots. This week however, we may all get the opportunity to utilise the positive aspects of powerful Scorpio by asserting our personal power to fuel our individual freedom of expression thanks to the Sun in Scorpio making a magical sextile to Scorpio’s ruling planet Pluto in Capricorn.
On the same day the Sun also conjuncts Saturn in Scorpio. Saturn rules work and this conjunction is all about the soul obligations we made before coming here. You may suddenly realise what your soul path is or discover a calling. Alternatively, if you have soul work to do with others you will set about completing this now in a way which benefits you both in the long term.
When it comes to the energy to fuel any task we’re all going to have that in abundance this week thanks to mighty Jupiter planet of expansion in spirited Gemini facing off fiery Mars in no-holds barred Sagittarius. Provided you don’t act impulsively incredible breakthroughs are possible this week especially if you work in the law, media, publishing, sport, travel, academics or with animals. But for all of us the transformation could just be as simple as changing a thought from what we don’t believe is possible to knowing that it is. You are what you think this week.
