If Your Birthday is Oct. 26
(The Day of Organizational Cohesion) | Get Your Scorpio Birthday Reading
Sometimes, to move forward, we have to extricate ourselves from ties to the past; in this case it would be past ideas about money. If you learn to recognize an opportunity when you see one, you might be surprised where they turn up. Take a business-like approach to your finances, including setting actual goals, and you cannot go wrong.
Written in the Planets
Ceres is opposite a point called Rhadamanthus, which is basically about truth as a lived principle. And closer to the ordinary, Venus is square Neptune. It’s said honesty is the best policy. What’s not said quite so often is that practicing honesty, especially as a way of life, is as nourishing for the soul as good food is for the body. By the same analogy, the challenges we meet by being honest are like roughage: meeting them is part of why it’s so healthy. We can all start to do this better by cultivating trust. Beginning that process, by the way, means being open; being prepared to take a risk. Yet by doing so you set off a domino effect. Imagine that: the power of love rippling through our species.
