Today’s Oracle takes us to the Scorpio weekly for Aug. 5, 2011.
You will need to keep a handle on your emotions the next few weeks. It may happen that your most passionately held beliefs come under question, or that you encounter people with whom you clash. I’m not suggesting that you stuff your feelings or not be clear about what you stand for, but it’s essential to your happiness and wellbeing that you observe yourself continuously while doing so. Do your best to identify with your adversary and to learn something from their point of view. That would be an example of ‘keeping a handle’. The opposite of that would be acting in any kind of rage; trying to convert someone to your beliefs; or going on a crusade. Be especially careful with those in positions of government or corporate authority. Walking away and saying nothing are better than the 100 other options you might have.
The Daily Oracle offers a horoscope selected randomly by our Intelligent Archive Oracle program, unique to Planet Waves. It’s also a database of my horoscopes going back to the late 1990s. You can use the Intelligent Archive Oracle to answer questions and give you ideas for how to handle problems and situations you cannot see through. This feature is available to our Galaxy, Backstage and Core Community members. See this link for more information.
