Scorpio, Oct.24 – Nov.22

Determined and forceful

Emotional and intuitive

Powerful and passionate

Exciting and magnetic

Scorpios are the most intense, profound, powerful characters in the zodiac. Even when they appear self-controlled and calm there is a seething intensity of emotional energy under the placid exterior. They are like the volcano not far under the surface of a calm sea, it may burst into eruption at any moment. But those of us who are particularly perceptive will be aware of the harnessed aggression, the immense forcefulness, magnetic intensity, and often strangely hypnotic personality under the tranquil, but watchful composure of Scorpio. In conventional social gatherings they are pleasant to be with, thoughtful in conversation, dignified, and reserved, yet affable and courteous; they sometimes possess penetrating eyes which make their shyer companions feel naked and defenseless before them.


Sagittarius, Nov.23 – Dec.22

Optimistic and freedom-loving

Jovial and good-humored

Honest and straightforward

Intellectual and philosophical

Sagittarians have a positive outlook on life, are full of enterprise, energy, versatility, adventurousness and eagerness to extend experience beyond the physically familiar. They enjoy travelling and exploration, the more so because their minds are constantly open to new dimensions of thought. They are basically ambitious and optimistic, and continue to be so even when their hopes are dashed. Their strongly idealistic natures can also suffer many disappointments without being affected. They are honorable, honest, trustworthy, truthful, generous and sincere, with a passion for justice. They are usually on the side of the underdog in society they will fight for any cause they believe to be just, and are prepared to be rebellious. They balance loyalty with independence.

Déja vu is settling in as I come to a conclusion about my life’s current fusty standstill. Prolonging an inevitable eventuality, I’ve been floating along, complacent yet growing ever weary with a certain covenant. 
We make our choices, we settle in, we start to notice something isn’t right and then….we what??? Wait. Wait to see if that caviling tenebrous feeling will change. Advice is always given and received the same, “Trust your first instincts”. Why, is that simple notion, so onerous to follow? Rebelling against your personal convictions? Testing oneself, strength, and axiom?
I’m a Pisces. Notorious for self confusion, procrastination and compassion. A bad mix for seeing things through to personal best and looking out for oneself. I argue in my double-mind all the time:
“But what about *insert name of _______*, how will they feel?”.
“They will survive what about you?”.
“But, but, but_________”.
One of my favourite astrology sites says this…of me:
Imaginative and sensitive
Compassionate and kind
Selfless and unworldly
Intuitive and sympathetic
On the dark side….

Escapist and idealistic
Secretive and vague
Weak-willed and easily led
I have a decision to make. A formidable one with consequences beyond my fins of control. Why are the decisions that are best for oneself always the hardest to realize?
If I linger for much longer I’ll dematerialize epi-silently. The noise of a black hole shamefully gorging on stars in deep space while no one watches.


When I turned 22 I started tempering with my soul. Lacking confidence in any of the known (subscribed?) religions, I’d often felt unoccupied, quintessentially blank. In times of joy, I acknowledged the emotions, drew pleasure from their light substance and held hands with positive delight. In times of pain, I cursed remorsefully at my weaknesses. At all times, I had felt evacuated of my specter.

A few miracles took place that year. I met several of the best people and friends I’ve ever had the pleasure of knowing, I landed a job in a terrific environment where I felt challenged daily, I started to dabble a bit in yoga, and studied philosophy, world religions and science ~ as a past time ~ with great hunger.

Giordano Bruno, Immanuel Velikovsky, Johannes Kepler, Rene Descartes, Tesla, Einstein, Copernicus; Buddhism, Christianity, Hinduism; Mythology, History, Astrology; all were devoured, consumed and processed into a escalating panacea of awareness of my long lost soul.

I forgave my emptiness, I allowed the whispery personage to seep back into my being. I took pleasure from knowledge and repletion in the training (re-training?) of marrying my physical and metaphysical senses.
