If Your Birthday is Oct. 24
(The Day of Sensational Detail) | Scorpio Birthday Reading | All Other Signs
You may find yourself standing on the edge between hesitating and going all in. As long as you pay attention, you will have a choice in what you do. You’ll need to know your own motives, and your own desires; and have an idea of what you stand to gain and what you stand to lose. When you feel it’s worth it, make the commitment.
Written in the Planets
Chances are you’ve been feeling today’s trine between Mercury in Scorpio and Neptune in Pisces for a few days. It’s likely manifested as a tendency to daydream and get lost in fantasy; as creativity that’s especially tapped into emotion and sexual energy; or as being drawn to music and poetry, or to the mystical, spiritual and occult. Perhaps you’ve chided yourself for a lack of discipline, but this is the kind of flow that’s easier to just go with, knowing that you can return to discipline after it has peaked. If you’re feeling especially sensitive to others’ moods, there’s an asteroid in the mix that might help you direct that. Juno in Capricorn is making sextiles to both Mercury and Neptune. You could harness your daydreams in the service of exploring certain long-standing, under-met partnership needs. After all, you can go anywhere in your fantasies, and that freedom might offer new insights.
