Horoscope for the Week of Aug 2nd:
We’ve got two particular planets in aspect with each other; two planets, when combined, make a significant impact. Saturn and the Sun are together at opposite ends of the sky, which can stir up polar opposite extremes in behavior. This means that the Earth is between the Sun and Saturn during this time. We will all find ourselves at the mercy of extremes; it will be a huge flip-flop, but it will help you gain perspective on things that will bring maturity and grace. Let’s take a look at where this unique aspect takes place in your chart:
You have ambition. And it’s really coming out right now – you’re wanting to make your life better and much more affluent. You also want to be well known in the public eye. You could say that you want to literally become a star. On the other hand.. there is a strong desire to perhaps slow down a bit to make sure you’re making the right decisions for yourself. This little bit of caution is a very good thing, because if there’s any doubt in the direction you’re heading, this bit of consciousness will help!

All About Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)
Of all the zodiac signs, nothing stumps more than Scorpio. Mystery, darkness, deeply sexual – and seemingly, at a second glance, a deep haunting look that has us deeply intrigued. Why is that? Well, visualize an iceberg. On the surface is a floating sea of frozen water, and underneath a huge undersection that says one thing: we don’t show much on the surface, but below….watch out. What is not showing is the real thing – but it’s not for the faint of heart.
Scorpio’s goals are to transform and heal their own wounds, and the wounds can be extensive. Because of that deep perspective, they keep a lot to themselves and rarely share it. And because of that, they have a great deal of understanding on issues of extremis. They make terrific psychologists.
Pluto rules Scorpio. Pluto has been the ruler of Scorpio since 1930. Originally Mars was assigned rulership, but once Pluto surfaced, it took over as ruler. Pluto is the God of the underworld which is perfect for Scorpio. Pluto has its roots in deep understanding and will find its way out of the dark side on occasion. When Scorpio comes out of the dark, it is usually transformed.
Associated body part: The reproductive area, because of the emphasis on intimacy and merging.
The issues of challenge. When Scorpio learns that it can trust– Itself and other people–then, and only then can Scorpio fully heal itself. The issues are then as long as they keep their emotions to themselves and don’t share anything they will always be in some kind of self-imposed hell.
The Issues of joy. When there is a merging all of the Scorpio and one other person, a person with a like soul, then there is great joy. When they learn to give up control of their emotions and let go, great joy happens.
