I found I could say things with color and shapes that I couldn’t say any other way – things I had no words for.

Happy Birthday all you Scorpios! At 1:47pm, Eastern Daylight time, the Sun moves into your sign!
If you have ever known one (or are one yourself) you will not be surprised to hear that Scorpios are often considered the most intense, profound, powerful members of the zodiac (and I swear, I’m not just sucking up, although Scorpios can sometimes fall for flattery).
Even when they appear self-controlled and calm, there is usually a seething intensity of emotional energy under the Scorpion’s inscrutable exterior.
Scorpios often exude sexuality and beckon their chosen intimates to share secrets.
Like triple Scorpio Georgia O’Keeffe, they may have trouble articulating in words their powerful feelings, but they usually find profoundly creative ways to express themselves nonetheless.
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.
Another quote from Georgia O’Keeffe offers further insight into the inner world of this intense and passionate sign: “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.
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.
