If Your Birthday is Oct. 28
(The Day of Research) | Scorpio Birthday Reading | All Other Signs
Take special care to discern what is true from what is false. Make an effort to be truthful in all that you say and do. Take the time to understand your feelings before you act on them. All of this is part of a commitment to being impeccably honest, especially with yourself. You’ve learned that there’s no happier way to live, and no more fulfilling.
Written in the Planets
It would seem that you’re being shown the threshold you can (must?) cross into a new phase of life, and also the best strategy for doing so. It’s likely this is being shown by another person, or through a relationship dynamic — possibly even through confrontation, though it could feel more like a dance. With the Scorpio Sun making an opposition today to asteroid Pallas and unnamed object 1992 QB1 in Taurus, certain themes are being emphasized in this situation. Although the physical, material or values-related parts of the threshold and the plan seem to come through someone else, the emotional awareness, expression and transformation needed are all up to you. Go ahead — Jupiter still has your back, and the signs involved are juicy.
