Scorpio, you’re beginning to realise that playing tug-of-war doesn’t serve anybody. Honor the call to step back. Honour the call to surrender to the mysterious workings of the Universe. What you will discover in the process is that the plan that’s written for you is far superior than anything you could have scripted for yourself. Aquarius, you’re not going to gain anything by winning this argument. But, there’s a lot that could potentially lose including some of your closest friendships. Word for the wise: watch your words and withdraw from the scene of crime. What you want to do instead is focus on your big dreams and take bigger actions. If there’s anything you hate more than a milky coffee (black or nothing, right?!), it’s doing things halfway. The full moon in your sign and the end of retrograde season has you reigniting your inner fire and going after that which you truly desire. Nothing and nobody can stop you from having your way this time around. The good news: a hot and steamy adventure may be on the cards too, the kind that involves undressing a certain someone. Uh-oh! What are you going to do now that the dirty secret is out in the open? Are you going to add fuel to the fire or quietly retreat into your cabin? Take a moment to assess how you would feel if you were in their place and your private moments were being discussed as 4pm gossip. Word for the wise: now is a good time to practice being the bigger person. This chapter of your life is all about making sounds financial decisions *and* taking your family into consideration. If the given choice has the potential to serve you in the long run, it means you’re on the right track. Those who have been conflicted when it comes to matters of the heart are also being asked to think practically. A good question to ask yourself before you put a ring on it: “Will the given person stand by me in both the good and the bad times?” As a professional astrologer, people ask me all types of questions. Of the most common curiosities is “what are the best zodiac signs?” along with its evil twin, “what are the worst Oct 22 zodiac signs?” While I appreciate any and all astrological inquiries, let me set the record straight: In astrology, there are no winners or losers. In fact, when you enter the metaphysical realm (the world of stars, tarot cards, tea leaves, etc.), that black-and-white binary goes straight out the window. In this magical, mystical domain, we work with nuance. Every sign is a powerful, vital piece in the puzzle that is the zodiac. The four elements — air signs, fire signs, water signs, earth signs — all work together to create a comprehensive whole, which shows up in your life as your unique personality traits. Although astrology is an extremely complex study, the most fundamental principle of astrology centers on the 12 familiar star signs of the zodiac. Over the centuries, each sign has developed its own associations — including myths, animals, and colors — and its own characteristics. Every sign is illuminated by its own point of view, complete with powerful strengths and exhausting weaknesses. From an astronomical perspective, we know that the Sun doesn’t move, as its stability anchors the entire solar system. But from our vantage here on planet Earth, the Sun is in constant motion. We can depend on its daily performance (including inspiring sunrises and dramatic sunsets), as well as its location in the sky. The position the Sun occupied at your exact moment of birth is known as your “sun sign” (sometimes referred to as “star sign” or “birth sign”), and it’s the cosmic launching pad for both beginners and professional astrologers. (Your Rising Sign is another very important placement, and you can read about it here). Your sun sign is determined by your date of birth and represents your core personality, sense of self, basic preferences, romantic compatibility, and ways in which you move through the world. This astrological placement sheds light on your innate gifts, as well as your hard-to-see blind spots. Your joys, wishes, flaws, and fears make you special and, when your sun sign is combined with the other planets and placements in your birth chart, it creates a distinctive celestial profile that serves as your cosmic fingerprint. Got it? Good. Now let’s take this to the next level. The twelve zodiac signs are also divided into sub-groups: four triplicates and three quadruplicates. If this seems a bit confusing, don’t worry, there’s a method to the madness. Triplicates refer to the four zodiac sign elements, of which there are three zodiac signs in each group: Fire Signs (Aries, Leo, Sagittarius), Earth Signs (Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn), Air Signs (Gemini, Libra, Aquarius), and Water Signs (Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces). Generally speaking, fire signs are passionate and exuberant, earth signs are practical and grounded, air signs are intellectual and curious, and water signs are intuitive and emotional. Dispelling Beauty Myths with Jonathan Van Ness Quadruplicates, also known as “modalities,” refer to the signs’ qualities and where each zodiac sign occurs within its respective season. There are three modalities, with four [url=https://mytodayshoroscope.com/october-22-birthday-horoscope/]zodiac signs in each: Cardinal (Aries, Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn) occur at the beginning of a new season, and are excellent at taking action and starting initiatives; Fixed (Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, and Aquarius) occur in the middle of seasons, and are known to be steady, consistent forces that maintain movement; and Mutable (Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, or Pisces) occur at the end of a season, and possess effortless fluidity well-suited to change and transformation. As we continue layering astrological concepts, we uncover a rich and complex practice that delivers insight into our truest selves. Now, let’s explore each sun sign’s unique personality attributes, from the honorable to the… umm, kind horrible? It’s okay — we all have problems!
