ZODIAC LOUNGE: SCORPIO THIS WEEK 7/22 - 7/28

October 22 - November 21

Scorpio (October 22nd to November 21st)

According to modern astrology, you have two patrons for your sign, Mars & Pluto. They’re both at each other’s throats this week, so that would suggest that there’s some internal raging happening for you as well, even more than usual. I think this is a good thing. Scorpio, as a sign of Mars, is how we fight the inner war to clear space for a more open and trusting heart after experiencing darkness or trauma.  This week, Mars & Pluto can help in three steps. The first step is allowing denial to die. The second step is letting your competing desires and intentions surface in some way without hurting you, somebody else or something else. Third, it’s realizing what you can control and letting go what you can’t.  If you find it hard to let go after you get at the heart of your feelings, then next week becomes that much harder.
