Potent, powerful, persistent, passionate OR, stubborn, secretive, sensitive, sensual. (I sort of exhausted all my S’s and P’s) I couldn’t decide on which group of adjectives to use for the mysterious 8th sign if the Zodiac. I’ve decided that it isn’t an either / or, the depth and strength of this Water sign can handle all descriptions. The Sun will heat and be heated by its Scorpio transit beginning on Monday October 22, 2012.
Where does Scorpio, ruled by power and transformation planet Pluto, appear in your chart”, Sun sign, Ascendant, Moon? Regardless of the House placement, a Scorpio Sun brings intensity and deep feeling to us all. Many times when confronted with an issue, there will only be an either yes or no response – no compromise. “Maybe” will not be acceptable. It is black or white with no shades of grey. Especially now with Saturn, planet of discipline, perseverance, and boundaries, visiting until December 2014, the demand for real life, well defined positions, along with some hard edged decisions will be amped. Superficial skimming the surface, in conversation or action, just won’t do.
Note that deep and fierce stuff can lead to all sorts of “feelings” that you may not be prepared to confront. So, don’t be surprised if emotionality occasionally goes unchecked. Often, the resulting “overwhelm” may not quite match the situation. There is nothing wrong with using an internal pause button to give us a chance to think, rather than just react. We can accomplish a lot during this time using Scorpio’s power and focus. But also remember that laughter can be used as a balm to stabilize, bring things into perspective and lighten the atmosphere.
