If Your Birthday is Oct. 22
(The Day of Allure) | Get Your Birthday Reading: Libra | Scorpio
As you strive for your independence, remember to honor all that you’ve learned from the wise elders along the way. You don’t need to worship them; just be grateful they gave you a few pointers. Rather than try to fix or heal everything you think is wrong with yourself, have faith in the fact that you’re the one living your own life, your own way. As such, you get to choose your next horizon.
Written in the Planets
A few hours after the last quarter Moon, the Sun enters Scorpio, where it squares an intriguing trio of minor planets in early Leo. Translation: you’re at a turning point, and you’re in a position to take the lead shaping the direction of your life. You don’t have to consider yourself inferior, superior or equal to anyone: it’s safe to be yourself. Pride is considered a virtue these days, but the planets are cautioning against it. Rather, focus on honoring your commitments and maintain the quality of your work. Use devotion as your guide, and you won’t have to sacrifice your compassion to create what you desire.
