Your horoscope for October 18 to 24, 2012
Scorpio month begins on Monday at 5:14 p.m., but since October’s start we’ve been exposed to Mercury and Saturn in Scorpio. On October 28, Mercury will move on, but Saturn in Scorpio will stay with us through December 2014.
Saturn’s tour through Scorpio tests all foundations in order to resecure their viability. It sets us to the task of reforming the outmoded structures and rationales that keep our personal and worldly existence on a deteriorating slide. When Scorpio dominates the skies, we are confronted with some of the most critical choices of our lives.
Some scientists are projecting a complete summer ice melt in the Arctic by 2015. The International Monetary Fund has said there’s a one-in-six chance of a worldwide economic collapse in the next two years. Oil: the business of, our addiction to, our suicide mission.
Saturn in Scorpio draws more critical attention to our dwindling and dying resources; our economic challenges; systemic and infrastructure failures; political, social, and moral corruption; and the limitations imposed by the liabilities we have already accrued.
Saturn in Scorpio favours empowerment agendas and the master strategist, both of the dark and of the light. It isn’t all doom and gloom, though; tremendous opportunity also exists. Monday through next Thursday, a vibrant and supportive grand trine in the water element sets up an ease of access, ready response, or get-the-job-done backdrop. Immerse yourself, express yourself. Feel it, heal it.
