“O God, make me good, but not yet.”

Jupiter has arrived in your sign for one year. If there’s such a thing as an astrological need, this fulfills one: for Scorpio to have an infusion of water (provided by the Jupiter connection to Pisces) and of spiritual leavening (provided by its connection to Sagittarius). The last time a major planet visited your sign was the Mars retrograde of 2016, which was not exactly wet and juicy; Saturn, for part of 2015, was not exactly a ripe mango, either. Now you have extra resources to work with, and room to maneuver. You’re likely to be feeling more optimistic; not just about life but about who you are. That’s most of what you need to go on in life. When you feel good about yourself, you can accomplish just about anything. At the end of the year, another planetary move will have a similar effect: Saturn enters Capricorn, which will take the brakes off of your self-esteem. Between now and then, however, you must fully claim your self-respect; something you’ve been struggling to do in recent years (with some success). You will know you’re doing this because you feel demonstrably better about yourself. You will be less defensive, and more supportive of the people around you. You’ll be more interested in whether you’ve kept your promises to others than whether they’ve kept their promises to you. That’s true self-confidence.

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.
