“We all know that Art is not truth. Art is a lie that makes us realize truth, at least the truth that is given us to understand. The artist must know the manner whereby to convince others of the truthfulness of his lies. If he only shows in his work that he has searched, and re-searched, for the way to put over lies, he would never accomplish anything.”
— Pablo Picasso

If Your Birthday is Oct. 25
(The Day of Substantive Form) | Scorpio Birthday Reading | All Other Signs
You must stand up for what means the most to you: the causes, the people, and the ideas. It’s too easy for you to remain silent, thinking someone will finally speak out and take action. Yet in all that you do, particularly your most intimate relationships, you must be cautious about jealousy. You don’t need it, nor does it help anyone you care about.
Written in the Planets
If the Scorpio Sun’s conjunction to the object Typhon (overnight into this morning) signified your awareness of some level of emotional storm — perhaps one you’ve kept hidden from others — keep your finger on that pulse. Today’s sextile between Venus in Libra and the Great Attractor in Sagittarius suggests it’s possible to express such things in a relationship in a balanced, fair way that cannot be ‘attacked’. Grace is the watchword here. With the Sun approaching a conjunction to Jupiter in Scorpio tomorrow, you can approach the situation with some shrewd optimism. Just remember: your personal growth does not happen at the expense of others. The more you can include them in your journey, the greater the benefit to all involved.
