Mercury begins its retrograde in the sign of Scorpio today, and on Wednesday, the Sun will ingress the symbol of the Phoenix too. These transits describe a dense energy afoot, an influence that will force us all to take a hardcore look at ourselves without fears or inhibitions. It will be easy at first to use a more casual approach, thus ignoring certain matters we’d much rather avoid. But as I’ve been saying over the past few weeks, the times call for courage. Plunging the depths of that which brings us pain will be necessary for transcendence and transformation.
I realize this sounds pretty dark, but it is the shadow side of life (i.e. challenges, anxiety, insecurities and etc.) that keep us from the light. It’s going to take real presence and determination towards whatever makes us feel uncomfortable to bring a sense of release. This is what’s necessary to break the cycle of complacency for the sake of life fulfilling change; only a firm commitment to understanding those psychological barriers we erect that prevent inner growth will do.
The Scorpion energy in effect will eventually lift. But the onus is on us to do the investigative work while we have this energy in our grasp – this is what we are all being charged with in the week ahead. If life seems uncomplicated and unobtrusive, you’ve only skimmed the surface, doing yourself a disservice in the process. The grittier things get the better; allow whatever toxins and pollutants you discover along the way to serve as your guide and compass to go even further in.

Aries: Aries is known to be defensive. You are ruled by the Warrior planet Mars, and so prone to get down and dirty in an altercation if challenged. You’re brave and courageous, and nobody can say otherwise. But for all your brazen, there’s a scared little child inside who doesn’t like to feel helpless and can’t stand being told they can’t do something. This week, the only person you have to prove yourself to is you. A lot of hardship could be avoided if you focused more on your personal security.

Taurus: How you relate to others is crucial, Taurus. It’s crucial because now more than ever, you need others in your life. If you don’t begin to reexamine how your fixed (even rigid) viewpoints keep others at a distance, no one will want to play with you. All of your current relationships have one thing in common – you. So please stop pointing your finger at the other person and own up to how you often times instigate the demise of certain connections. It’s time for a more thorough look.

Gemini: Something has got to give in your day-to-day, Gemini. While I understand your habit of juggling a number of tasks in the air in order to feel more productive, I worry that in the process, you may be neglecting the one thing that needs your undivided attention. What could that be? Why do you keep putting it off? As an Air sign, you’re good at finding reason and logic in any situation. But whatever it is you’re avoiding now is having an emotional effect. I suggest you analyze that. Astrological compatibility goes beyond just your Zodiac signs. My October special is still going strong! Visit www.randomenssofrudy.com for more details!
