“I used to feel so alone in the city. All those gazillions of people and then me, on the outside. Because how do you meet a new person? I was very stunned by this for many years. And then I realized, you just say, “Hi.” They may ignore you. Or you may marry them. And that possibility is worth that one word.”
— Augusten Burroughs

Sun and Jupiter in Scorpio: A Light on Truth

If you’re wondering where Scorpio gets its passionate reputation, chances are it begins with the mixture of fire and water. Scorpio is a water sign; yet it’s ruled by Mars, and somehow wound up with a desert animal for a symbol. Further, Scorpio holds the key to the most essential mysteries and desires of human life. Any other sign would implode under the pressure.

Scorpio has been relatively quiet since the Mars retrograde in spring 2016; a time when, among other things, Donald Trump really emerged from the woodwork and began his rise to power.

Yet now Jupiter is taking up residence for about a year. The Sun joins Jupiter (and Mercury) in Scorpio early Monday, at 1:26 am EDT (05:26:36 UTC); it forms a conjunction with Jupiter later in the week, on Thursday.

As the planets gather in this sign, it’s reflected in hidden truths being brought to light. The Weinstein saga is an obvious example; not only in terms of his actual crimes, but the endemic nature of the problem of sexual harassment.

The truths we hide from ourselves are usually far less nefarious, if at all; yet our efforts to keep them buried can produce a lot of tension. There are plenty of ways in which we’re conditioned to feel guilt and shame, simply for being who we are; and it prevents us from fully expressing our inner gifts — unless we face it. And the present activity in Scorpio is calling on us to do precisely that.

If Your Birthday is Oct. 23
(The Day of Conflicting Karma) | Birthday Readings: Libra | Scorpio | Others
You have more to offer than you may think. Yet you’ll only find out by giving yourself to who and what you value. This is not giving away, but rather investment in what means the most to you. What you’ll discover is that the more you offer, the more you have. You can afford to be generous, especially with your knowledge and your experience.

Written in the Planets
Today, the Sun ingresses Scorpio, joining Jupiter and Mercury. One of the major themes of this setup (and of Scorpio in general) relates to revealing what is hidden. This is an important part of the healing process. When you understand and acknowledge your secrets, it means you can operate with your whole self. If you’re not quite sure where to begin, this morning’s ingress and Thursday’s conjunction between the Sun and Jupiter could both offer some insights.
