A few quick things to remember about Scorpio:
* When the Sun moves into the sign of deep Autumn it brings intense clarity to things like death, loss, and depth...these normally "dark" subjects become ironically clear and transparent.
* The way each person handles the reality of death, loss, and depth reflects the spectrum of common Scorpio characteristics. For example, some people try to fight and defend against these things, to the point of becoming defensive, possessive, and paranoid, which are some of the less attractive words we often use to describe Scorpio. On the other hand, some people revel in the darkness, death, and depth, to the point of becoming secretive, manipulative, and obsessive. There is also a stubborn erotica to Scorpio, an insistence on drawing things out. All of these qualities are in some way related to how we cope with or express our relationship with death, depth, and darkness.
* Scorpio is often....secretive but not a liar, hidden but not betraying, watching but not attacking, misunderstood but not without hurt feelings.
* Scorpio is frequently the honesty that stings but transforms, kills but revives, and reveals as it conceals.
Prayer: We welcome the Sun into the Scorpion. Illuminate the depths and teach us the erotic and revitalizing power of honesty.
