If Your Birthday is Oct. 29
(The Day of New Ideas) | Get Your Scorpio Birthday Reading
Surprise! What’s that? You don’t like surprise parties? Think of it this way: relatively few things in life offer the opportunity to shift fixed tendencies like the unexpected does. This, in turn, provides an opening to regenerate what you’ve metaphorically cut yourself off from. While others are scrambling in chaos, you get to focus on what you truly desire, which is the most obvious way to adapt. Any new solution that emerges hints that your sense of self-worth will as well.
Written in the Planets
If someone tells you, “Wow — I never expected that from you!” in response to something uncharacteristically bold that you’ve just done, take it as a sign that the growth you’ve been engaged in behind the scenes is ready to bear fruit. (If it’s in response to losing your temper, what needs have you been suppressing?) Today’s square between Mars in Capricorn and Uranus-Eris in Aries could be quite productive if you’re honest and up-front about changes you need to make, and if you have constructive ways to channel any frustration or sexual energy you’re feeling. Speaking of which: Venus in Sagittarius seems to be saying, “Run away with me!” If you immediately reply, “Oh, no, I can’t,” ask yourself why not — and then check whether you’re being pulled in that direction despite your professed belief of limitation.
