“If I like chocolate it won’t surprise you that I have a few chocolates in my fridge, but if you find out I’ve got 16 warehouses full of chocolate, you’d think I was insane. All these rich guys are insane, obsessive compulsive twits obsessed with money — money is all they think about.”
— John Cleese

Scorpio is the sign of psychology. Intensely curious and able to blend the mental and emotional levels, you crave insight into others. Relax your mind and you’ll get it this year. You may also encounter someone with ‘lost knowledge’ that will benefit from you.
Written in the Planets
You’ve probably never heard of 1992 QB1. For a long time there was speculation that no planets were orbiting our solar system beyond Pluto. Theories were debated for decades. Then one day two scientists spotted something with an orbit just over 289 years, a shade beyond Pluto. Its discovery degree is the Aries Point — 01 Aries. This discovery established the existence of what became known as the Kuiper Belt. What’s interesting is that QB1 is not named, and it’s unlikely that it ever will be. That’s because other planets in its class are known as ‘cubewanos': a play on Q-B-1. Now known as (15760) 1992-QB1 (with the ‘1’ in subscript), my take is that this is the planet of subtle sexuality and sexual healing. It’s the patron of people known as the Thresholders, in-body spiritual guides who assist with childbirth, erotic surrender and death. You may read more about the subject here.
