Scorpio (October 22nd to November 21st)
There are plenty fables, from all over the world, that have a young hero seeking out the wise (wo)man with no clue how s/he may appear once found. Of course, the story then becomes more a peep into the hero’s character than about the wisdom he or she will receive. Sometimes the hero misses out on the wisdom because they didn’t expect it from the person s/he saw as a bum or as only a small child. This week has both elements, so be sure you’re paying attention. There are messages of wisdom coming your way, especially for a problem that’s close to your heart; but you can’t run too hard with your expectations about the messenger nor can you fixate on what the message should look like. You need only the humility and openness to receive it.
