SCORPIO (October 23–November 21)
Mars squares Pluto again December 23, as they did August 13 with Pluto retrograde, and again October 9 with Mars Retrograde. Scorpio's two planetary rulers in a challenging square; Mars in Cardinal Fire Aries and Pluto in Cardinal Earth Capricorn. By modality they agree: Cardinal energy initiates. By element they conflict fire vs. earth. Integrate fire's inspiration with earth's manifestation and use these dynamic energies to direct internal, creative tensions to the yielding of rewarding leaps in personal development. This time both Mars and Pluto will be direct: Now you can move with this energy instead of against it.
