Show your appreciation of the small kindnesses.
Scorpio/Scorpio Rising* (Oct 23-Nov 21): Being the deepest and darkest of the feminine/yin/receptive signs, you thrive on introspection and psychoanalytical analysis. Before you get your collective underwear in a knot, know that yin energies are like an inhale (and, in your case, it is a long and deep one). So no matter what your external genitalia depict, you're an instinctive, magnetic soul. But one of your guardians, Mars, is exhaling all over the place. Your big zodiacal news is that Mr. Warrior moves into changeable earth sign Virgo on Thursday, November 10, at 10:16p CST. Due to a slowdown, a.k.a. retrograde, on January 23, 2012, he'll be in Virgo until July 3, 2012. Your powers of transforming our preconceived notions of making a better world are front-and-center. How do you inspire us to transform without being overly intense and turning us off instead of on? How do you continue to believe while simultaneously perceiving so much wrong? Here's how: (1) Know your soulful depths. (2) Know when to lighten and come up for air (perspective). (3) Being heard and humor trump secrecy and aloofness.
Sagittarius/Sagittarius Rising* (Nov 22-Dec 19): Hot to trot meets rubber in the road. You've been flirting (when do you not?) with someone you must see. It has been said that you shouldn't sex where you eat (so the kitchen is a no go?). For the younger and often slower souls, do not have sex with co-workers. Not one for being able to slough off temptations (unless you're the fundamental kind of Sag), it will be challenging, the next nine months, to overlook an electricity between you and another at work. Another way to go (if you're in a closed monogamous relationship) would be to use these, shall I say, excessive creative drives to be healthier, driven toward perfection, as it were. Adding her own brand of make-over magnetism is none other than Goddess of Love Venus, languishing lovingly in your sign until November 26. Choose to combine your quick mind with athletic moves, and any relationship that needs refurbishing can be made over.
Capricorn/Capricorn Rising* (Dec 21-Jan 19): Imagine you're in a foreign country. You don't know the language. But you're having an incredible time depending on your other senses (and guides, too). You traveled to this country because it's time for you to have an adventure. As a tourist, you cannot rely upon your understanding of the customs. As a traveler, you have an innate trust in your abilities to "read" those foreign others. Being a sign that thrives on control, dependency on anything but the practical and what you consider to be common sense is not for you. Allow yourself to accept that "reading" folks is not going to make you more pragmatic, or will it? As long as you do not rely on precedence too much, you as traveler through various relationships can have a raucous good time. Combine the question "Why not?" with "Does this harm anyone?" You must get near the line to cross in order to see it clearly. You've got to be willing to break with unnecessary routines for your freer spirit to show itself; otherwise, it's empty trash talk. And you are entirely better than that.
Aquarius/Aquarius Rising*(Jan 20-Feb 19): No one would know it on your first impression, but you can be more of a masochist than sadist, situationally speaking. You will submit to a superior (read: actively positive) ideal, intellect and interpreter. We've spoken much about ideals and how there is no "should" manual. You write your own life script. There are no rules except serving a higher purpose that's inclusive of all living beings. And, through trusting yourself, you know each time you've chosen an excellent tour guide to the mysteries of life and relationships. You eat mysteries for breakfast, and you'll out any and all hypocrites. So the consummate submissive part of your personality has to be safely explored. The interpreter needed aids you through increasing your emotional intelligence.
