Cosmic Light Change
The first full day of the Scorpio sun will be marked by a green light on a relationship idea. This could be as narrow as making a plan to get together with someone or as broad as making up a new set of rules for your personal life in general. Just remember that you're in charge, that you have choices and that decisions become destiny.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). There will be no shortage of wisdom in your realm. Quotations and sayings abound! The current zeitgeist involves much pretty advice. Applying a frame is a popular option; applying the actual advice, far less so.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You know where you want to go, and you thought you knew how to get there, too. But something about the route has changed. As much as you hate to stop and ask for directions, it will be the smart thing to do.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You're feeling rather driven. There is much work to be done, and that includes forging relationships, both professional and personal. To play this right, stay open and helpful without offering up so much as to seem overeager.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). In the current cosmic shift, you're like a hermit crab outgrowing its shell. You know you're changing, yet in a strange way, you also know you're becoming more like who you really are.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). It will be easier to influence the group when the members of the group trust you. They'll trust you when you seem to be more or less like them -- at least in a few ways that matter. Show them why you're a good fit and then you can lead them in new directions.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You'll be dealing with people who are more fragile than they seem. So be sure not to overestimate their confidence or the thickness of their skin. You'll definitely be doing some coaxing and encouraging today.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You offer a combination of traits that can't be found in any other person. So though many could fill the role you fill, do the job you do and so forth, you are still, in many other ways, completely irreplaceable.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You'll find other people's routines very interesting. In the study of this, there's something in it for you -- a life hack or practical tip that will make an area of your life run much more smoothly.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). When you encounter something beautiful, you'll want to protect it with all your might and light. Just make sure it really needs your help. Do your homework, because some causes are not what they seem.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You're trying to learn the social lay of the land. It starts with figuring out each person's motive. Seeing as no one will tell you what his or her real purpose is, you'll have to figure it out from clues.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). This day comes with a built-in assignment for you -- and the added bonus of all the motivation, inspiration and resources you need to do a fantastic job.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You either are not in the mood to go by the book or simply see a better way. In your defense, "the book" was written a very, very long time ago; things have really changed since then.
TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (Oct. 23). You'll exercise your wit, hone your intellect and contribute to a project that involves many other sharp minds like yours. The next seven weeks will inject your world with more fun. The end of the year is a financial lift, and in 2018, business starts to take off in an interesting new direction. You'll travel with friends. Libra and Aquarius adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 6, 32, 12, 29 and 5.
TURN THE DOWNSIDE OF YOUR SIGN INTO AN ASSET: Noted for popularity, AQUARIUS is a sign for the people. The water-bearing symbol of Aquarius speaks to the serviceable nature of this sign. Admirably, Aquarius will go out of the way to make sure that everyone is cared for. But Aquarian generosity can also begin a cycle of codependence. How can Aquarius natives avoid becoming enablers? The key is to give the kind of help that allows people to help themselves. It is better to teach someone a skill than to provide the kind of assistance that fosters weakness and dependence.
PISCES is among the most sensitive and impressionable signs of the zodiac; therefore, Pisces is susceptible to all kinds of influences -- good and bad. This susceptibility is precisely how Pisces empathizes with others -- by entering their world, sharing their feelings, taking on their beliefs and joining their experience. It is what makes Pisces great artists and wise souls. For this gift to be purely an asset, Pisces must be extremely careful in choosing good company. One rule of thumb for Pisces: Never hang out with anyone you wouldn't want to be, because chances are you will, in some way and in some moment, try on the identity of whomever you are with.
CELEBRITY PROFILES: In true Scorpio style, movie star Ryan Reynolds married the lovely "Gossip Girl" star Blake Lively in a top-secret wedding, and the superstar manages to maintain an extremely private family life with Lively and their two daughters. Reynolds was born under a Scorpio moon, too, and to top that off, his natal Mars and Uranus are both in the mysterious Scorpion. His love of privacy is epic!
