“War is the greatest destroyer of human life, the greatest polluter, the greatest creator of refugees, the greatest cause of starvation and illness. We all have to care — not just for our own little circle, but for the universe.”
— Muriel Duckworth

If Your Birthday is Oct. 31
(The Day of Attentiveness) | Scorpio Birthday Reading | All Other Signs
You seem to be craving direct experience: reality rather than virtual reality; creating rather than consuming; the physical event rather than the fantasy. Only actual participation will satisfy you, though you must keep in mind that there’s both the perception of risk, and actual risk, involved. That’s OK. It’s dangerous sitting around wishing you could do more.
Written in the Planets
Your feelings are powerful right now, and you can sense how they relate to old patterns. Not only is the veil between worlds thin presently, in looking through it, you can trace the lineage of some kind of emotional or sexual hand-me-down whose time is up. Yet there’s some concrete, real-life wisdom currently available to you, too. That comes via the asteroid Pallas, retrograde in Taurus; it’s making an opposition to Jupiter in Scorpio. Both Pallas and Jupiter are in harmony with centaur Nessus in Pisces (‘the buck stops here’). Notice what another person is reflecting back to you today. It looks like they’re modeling the strategy you need; or perhaps you’re the confidante with a healing vibe they’ve been looking for. Or vice versa. Either way, work the emotional-physical axis to get furthest today.
