Gaia Friday: The Ocean Speaks

by Beth on October 24, 2014

I think these beautiful (but necessarily disturbing) videos are so important that, except for next week (Samhain), I am going to be featuring one each week.

So welcome to my second Gaia Friday. I hope you’ll stop by for a couple of minutes and tune in – Nature is Speaking and we need to listen.

And I invite you to leave your own thoughts and comments if you wish. How would you answer this conversation?

Full screen is recommended.

Happy Birthday, Passionate Scorpio!

by Beth on October 23, 2014

ScorpioThere are mysteries which men can only guess at, which age by age they may solve only in part.
~ Bram Stoker, best known as the author of Dracula
(Born November 8, 1847 with Sun and Moon in Scorpio)

Happy Birthday all you Scorpios! At 7:57am, Eastern Daylight time, the Sun moved into your sign!

If you have ever read Bram Stoker’s Dracula (or his other stories that delve deeply into the shadows), you might not be surprised that Scorpios are often considered the most intense, profound, and complex members of the zodiac.

Even when they appear self-controlled and calm, there is usually a seething intensity of emotional energy under the Scorpion’s placid exterior. They often exude sexuality and beckon their chosen intimates to share secrets.

Sometimes Scorpios are accused of holding grudges, but that’s not entirely accurate. It’s just that Scorpios rarely forget anything, and will defend themselves if they have been hurt. While they have a legendary sting when provoked, they are also refreshingly honest and unpretentious.

One of the most intelligent members of the zodiac, Scorpios have a deep well of strength that can make them a brilliant ally, or a vindictive enemy.  They must take care to avoid becoming enmeshed in dark dramas, which can be tempting to Scorpios, thanks to their vivid, but sometimes brooding imaginations.

A huge abundance of energy usually makes this person a charismatic achiever and go-getter — Scorpio is never lazy. Though they may struggle with jealousy and an overly sensitive nature that often takes things too personally, they also have the power within to turn this around.

As triple Scorpio, Georgia O’Keefe, once said, “I’ve been absolutely terrified every moment of my life – and I’ve never let it keep me from doing a single thing I wanted to do.”

When the Sun is in Scorpio – For Everyone

(October 23 – Nov. 22)

Because the Scorpion and its next neighbor on the wheel, the archer Sagittarius, both deliver their most accurate sting while retreating, the energy of this time for all of us favors the protection of our resources and valuables, especially with Mercury currently being retrograde (it stations direct again on Saturday the 25th).

Superficiality and procrastination are unacceptable when the Sun is in Scorpio. This is a time of year that is intense. It brings swings in weather, the brilliant colors of dying leaves, and the knowledge that Winter’s icy entrance is not far away.

Whatever matters we may have let slide must now be dealt with. Although not always fun or easy, powerful transformation and profound healing are possible during this time.

With the Sun now entering Scorpio, we are reminded that the third and final harvest is upon us — Samhain is only a week away.


Do you have a friend or loved one with a Scorpio Birthday (between October 23 and November 22)? Or maybe you are a juicy Scorpio who is seeking more depth and magic in your life.

Why not join my Birthday Club? Treat yourself (or your Scorpio friends) to a full year of ideas, activities, and affirmations that will intensify the wisdom and passion so vital to a Scorpio’s happiness.

All the details are here!

Tarot Card of the Week, Oct. 20-26, 2014: Ten of Swords

October 20, 2014

Life has left her footprints on my forehead. But I have become a child again this morning. The smile, seen through leaves and flowers, is back to smooth away the wrinkles, as the rains wipe away footprints on the beach. Again a cycle of birth and death begins. ~ Thich Nhat Hanh In this week […]
