Today’s Tarot Card for October 24th is The Sun

The Sun


October 24th, 2014
What has traditionally been known as the Sun card is about the self — who you are and how you cultivate your personality and character. The earth revolves around the sun to make up one year of a person’s life, a fact we celebrate on our birthday.

The Sun card could also be titled “Back to Eden.” The Sun’s radiance is where one’s original nature or unconditioned Being can be encountered in health and safety. The limitations of time and space are stripped away; the soul is refreshed and temporarily protected from the chaos outside the garden walls.

Under the light of the Sun, Life reclaims its primordial goodness, truth and beauty. If one person is shown on this card, it is usually signifying a human incarnation of the Divine. When two humans are shown, the image is portraying a resolution of the tension between opposites at all levels. It’s as if this card is saying “You can do no wrong — it’s all to the good!”

If You Were Born Today, October 24

If You Were Born Today, October 24

 

Although you don’t intend to be, there is something mysterious about you that adds fuel to your considerable, yet quiet, personal magnetism. Your will is quite strong, and you easily hone in on what motivates people. A natural born psychologist, you readily pick up on what makes people “tick”. You are not a combative sort, unless you absolutely have to be. You have a strong sense of the “here and now” and where you are in life. Your sense of direction is also remarkable. Your intuition is powerful, and your dedication to the people you love is notable. Impulsiveness is a trait that you may need to tame. Famous people born today: Kevin Kline, Bill Wyman, Ann Edson Taylor, Bob Kane, Melvin Purvis.

Your Birthday Year Forecast:

A Solar Eclipse in your Solar Return chart suggests that you will instinctively begin a new phase of your life this year. This is likely to be a personally significant, standout year. A decisively new direction has come about in your life. This can be an emotionally stimulating time in which you feel the urge to initiate and project, even if you are not quite clear about what you are projecting. Much of the energy in your life can have a magical quality to it as things are just automatically going in a certain direction. It is important to be intuitive at this time and allow the natural course to show you the way to the next step. Surprises (mostly very pleasant) pepper your year. New beginnings are in order, and you are bound to feel some level of excitement as the year unfolds.

You are more imaginative and attuned to the world of beauty and romance in the year ahead. Gentleness with others is the best way to harness this energy and to attract what you want into your life. There could be truly “magical” times on a romantic and social level. You are likely to idealize and expand a relationship through sensitive interactions and a more giving approach. Benefits come through paying attention to your dreams and intuitions, as well as through creativity.

This is an excellent year in which to advance projects revolving around communications – writing, speaking, selling, and so forth. Your reputation may be enhanced through word of mouth. Making new contacts through learning and mental pursuits figures strongly as well. Fortunate connections are likely to be made this year–connections that benefit you now and down the road and that enhance your chances of success at achieving your goals. A new relationship with someone that helps to broaden your horizons, expand your mind, and deepen your personal philosophy of life is very likely.

Your personal magnetism is increased this year. There can be healthy competition in your relationships and in business for some of you, stimulating improvements.

This can be a wonderful period for drawing upon your natural talents and for recognition for them as well. Your ideas might be seen as visionary, and business can be boosted by your added creativity. You can gain much respect for your ideas this year.

You tend to be popular with others when it comes to your ideas and communications, especially as you are communicating with optimism and cheerfulness, and this can bring rewarding experiences and opportunities into your life.

There are likely to be quite a few doors opening for you this year. Negotiations, marriage, and business partnerships benefit. Artistic talent is emphasized this year, and respected – you can truly shine. You are motivated by the desire to strike a balance in your relationships and in your personal environment. Smooth negotiations with others are sought. You are more diplomatic and gracious this year. This is a good period in your life for social affairs, pleasure, amusement, and romance.

You are especially interested in setting goals and challenges for yourself this year, and taking the necessary action to meet them. You may meet or interact with others who encourage or inspire you in some way to have more confidence in yourself. Your energy levels are generally strong this year, and your sense of timing better than usual. You tend to instinctively know the right course of action to take in most situations.

Creative leanings are strong this year, as you can have a stronger sense of rhythm, color, and form. You also have a good sense of humor. Your personal appeal increases. It’s a great time to join with groups or work together towards a common goal, and you could be favored in competitions.

This is a year of new beginnings and fresh energy. It’s good for spreading your wings, expanding your contacts, and enjoying a strong enterprising spirit. Personal magnetism is stronger, and there can be fortunate contacts and connections made this year. Your ideas are powerful and well-received, and there can be increased activity in with your favorite pastimes.

Happy Birthday, Scorpio!

Happy Birthday, Scorpio!

It’s finally your time, the month when your energy is at its most intense, when your focus is the most exact and your
passions likely the most fulfilled.

Natural Sign of the Eighth House — House of Sex, Death and Regeneration — Scorpio usually gets pegged with a
reputation that’s both the sexiest and the scariest of the twelve Sun Signs. During the Sun’s transit through this Water
Sign, emotions will run extra high and, with the increase of emotions, suspicions may also be raised. Scorpio is a
perceptive Sign, and when it gets a hunch, it investigates it, leaving no secret undiscovered. Watch out: Consequences
will be more serious than usual, and messages more honest and direct. You Scorpios (and the rest of us during the
Sun’s transit of the Sign, actually) will be magnetically attractive to others, as you exude a forceful sexuality and
an emotionally-tinged confidence in your own appeal.

Because Scorpio is so fiercely passionate, there is a tendency for natives of the Sign to brood and exhibit  bursts
of jealousy when the road to love becomes bumpy. The flip side to this characteristic is that Scorpio cares deeply
and intensely about those it loves, and will go to great lengths to protect and defend these lucky individuals. Although
romantic relationships can be complicated because of Scorpio’s unpredictable moods, at least there’s never a dull moment!

Although Scorpio’s intense feelings define the Sign, we shouldn’t forget that Scorpio is also kind, loyal and generous. Scorpio’s innate understanding of emotions, ability to uncover the truth and driving passion are an inspiration to us all.

Get A Jump On Tomorrow, Your Horoscopes for Sat., October 25th

We want to share our feelings in an all-or-nothing manner today. We may express our love in dramatic ways as sexy Venus does the tango with the sultry Scorpio Sun, but the heat of passion can turn to ice. If we push our luck too far, the Moon’s conjunction with karmic Saturn reminds us of appropriate limits. Thankfully, messenger Mercury completes its three-week retrograde period this afternoon, freeing our thoughts to move forward once again.

Aries Horoscope

(Mar 21 – Apr 19)

You say whatever is on the tip of your tongue today; however, you could step into deep water so quickly that you don’t have time to get your bearings. Unfortunately, you may be even more impulsive than ever with your words now that mischievous Mercury moves forward in your 7th House of Relationships. Although you might be tempted to stir up some drama, you’re still better off approaching a conversation about your feelings with thoughtful deliberation. Fools rush in where angels fear to tread.

Taurus Horoscope

(Apr 20 – May 20)

You feel like royalty now as you luxuriate in the splendor of your own domain. But just because jolly Jupiter is camping out in your 4th House of Home doesn’t mean you will get everything you want now. Stay optimistic, even if you face a minor setback. It’s crucial to project a positive attitude now that the Sun is traveling through your 7th House of Partnerships. Setting the bar high encourages your friends and family to step up to the plate and give it their best shots.

Gemini Horoscope

(May 21 – Jun 20)

Playing to your audience is tricky business if you aren’t on stage today. It’s tough to be a teacher if you don’t have a class. Above all, you need a stable platform from which to express your creative ideas. Nevertheless, you could still make real progress on a project now by thinking outside of the box. Solidifying routines may still require additional time, yet creating structure reliably leads to greater opportunities down the road.

Cancer Horoscope

(Jun 21 – Jul 22)

Your feelings are so tangible that they could overwhelm your plans today. However, avoiding serious emotional commitments now allows you to encourage your imagination to meander without restraint. Keep in mind that even the most impractical thoughts can have practical consequences. Exploration of your inner worlds leads to outer rewards.

Leo Horoscope

(Jul 23 – Aug 22)

Everyone might be relying on you to be the nurturing one of the group with four planets residing in your 4th House of Emotional Security. Additionally, others expect you to entertain and amuse them now. However, you’re simply not in the mood to put on a performance and you want to avoid the spotlight completely. Tracing your feelings back to their underlying causes can make a real difference, enabling you to make positive changes that last.

Virgo Horoscope

(Aug 23 – Sep 22)

You would be quite content these days if people left you alone for a while. You long for seclusion and may greatly benefit by carving out some quiet time for self-reflection. Still, there might be one or two close friends you really want to share your thoughts with now; just don’t let your socializing grow out of hand. Your self-esteem depends on your ability to establish healthy boundaries while still being vulnerable with those you love.

Libra Horoscope

(Sep 23 – Oct 22)

Sometimes making the simplest changes in a relationship can take longer than you expect. Thankfully, the Sun’s alignment with your key planet Venus refreshes your dreams and widens your vision of the future. Paradoxically, your confidence is on the rise, even as you sink deeper into your feelings. Nevertheless, carefully building on a solid emotional foundation makes more sense than rushing ahead just because you like what you see on the horizon.

Scorpio Horoscope

(Oct 23 – Nov 21)

Charming Venus cozies up to the Sun in your 1st House of Personality, you won’t likely be short on charisma — even if others criticize or attack your plan. This is your moment to shine; you’re at the top of your game, so eagerly invite in every opportunity that knocks at your door.

Sagittarius Horoscope

(Nov 22 – Dec 21)

You are a natural-born traveler yet responsibilities are stacking up today, prohibiting your free movement. If you do end up taking a trip now, it will likely be for business, not pleasure. Nevertheless, you still may want to go somewhere special, so expand your intellectual sphere by researching a new and different destination. Don’t wait for fate to decide your future; stand up and be counted as someone who makes their own opportunities.

Capricorn Horoscope

(Dec 22 – Jan 19)

You might have to work with a very stubborn person today, someone who seems bent on turning a simple exercise into a totally frustrating experience. Pride is not a strength at this time, but a sure sign of weakness. Thankfully, real cooperation is possible when humility is present and there is respect for all parties involved. Remember that bossing others around won’t get you what you want now, but practicing compassion could just do the trick.

Aquarius Horoscope

(Jan 20 – Feb 18)

You want to step back and take in the whole picture today, so you are quite willing to walk away from the details and leave them to someone else. You’re not interested in superficial matters; you’re too serious to get sidetracked, especially if you’re seeking power and integrity now. However, be ready to drop whatever you are doing if someone with convincing sincerity shows up. The right person can act as a catalyst that changes everything for the better.

Pisces Horoscope

(Feb 19 – Mar 20)

You can transform the most boring drudgery into an exciting adventure today by simply putting all of your heart into your work. The same old chores that usually annoy you to no end suddenly invite you to explore your imagination and cultivate your creativity. The good news is that you can be productive and playful at the same time as long as you are willing to work hard without taking yourself too seriously.

Your Daily Horoscopes for Friday, October 24th

Emotional interactions continue to intensify today, even as yesterday’s eclipse energy begins to fade. The relentless Scorpio Moon prompts us to express ourselves in spite of resistance. Although complex feelings are in the air, relationship problems quickly sort themselves out because the Sun and Venus create magical quintiles to bountiful Jupiter. The pleasurable aspects of sensual Venus flow smoothly now, resulting in sweet satisfaction.

Aries Horoscope

(Mar 21 – Apr 19)

You might end up expending precious energy and exhausting yourself for no reason today. Although a friend or lover may seem distant, your current situation ultimately serves you well if you simply learn your lesson. But don’t attack someone needlessly just because you’re feeling insecure. Admit that you can make mistakes and then proceed with caution the next time around

Taurus Horoscope

(Apr 20 – May 20)

You tend to play well with others at work because you’re normally not interested in making waves. Nevertheless, you might feel as if you’re placed in an awkward position today if someone questions your motives or undermines your efforts. But instead of wasting time defending your behavior, put your energy toward reaching your goals. If necessary, retreat and work on your own until the tension passes. Take the high road and let your integrity be the final word.

Gemini Horoscope

(May 21 – Jun 20)

It seems as if success is within your grasp but your progress could grind to a screeching halt today if you expect too much all at once. There’s no need to be afraid of acting on your desires now, assuming you are sticking with the facts and not looking for an easy way out. However, you can reach farther than ever if you lead with your common sense; seize the moment and seal the deal.

Cancer Horoscope

(Jun 21 – Jul 22)

You can’t escape the burden of responsibility today, but you should focus on the positive of the current situation rather than where you might fall short. You’re less inclined to take yourself too seriously today, even if everyone else is acknowledging your authority. However, you’re not going to singlehandedly solve anyone’s problems, no matter how much you want to help. Offer whatever assistance you can and then give others sufficient space and time to choose their own paths.

Leo Horoscope

(Jul 23 – Aug 22)

Your patience may seem out of character today, especially in light of your current enthusiasm for getting the most out of life. However, separating your needs from those around you can help you rationalize your deliberate behavior now. But don’t bother trying to explain to everyone why you’re moving slowly; just trust your instincts and reach for the stars at your own pace. Although it may take a while for others to notice, the cosmic energy is already beginning to shift and your progress will soon be evident.

Virgo Horoscope

(Aug 23 – Sep 22)

Although you think you know exactly what you want today, your goals are more confused than you realize. In fact, your unbridled optimism could prompt you to make a faulty assumption. You believe you understand what’s lurking just beyond your perceptions, but getting the rest of the story might be an elusive task. Don’t force any issues; it’s healthier to delay an important decision than to make a choice without having the right information at your disposal. Patience will ultimately pay off with the truth.

Libra Horoscope

(Sep 23 – Oct 22)

Your anticipation grows today since expansive Jupiter boosts your confidence and raises your expectations. Nevertheless, you might feel as if your friends aren’t supporting you enough, but blaming others for their lack of enthusiasm doesn’t help your cause. Acknowledging your peers for who they are and not for what they can or cannot do on your behalf gives them the freedom to respond without pressure. Just because change is in the air doesn’t mean that you should rush it.

Scorpio Horoscope

(Oct 23 – Nov 21)

Someone you respect might promise you the Moon, yet you still want to see concrete results. Your willingness to give others the benefit of the doubt works in your favor, but only up to a point. Fortunately, you won’t likely get lost in such high expectations that you end up being disappointed. You’re better off now if you can step back and keep everything in a healthy perspective. Bring your dreams back down to earth if you want them to come true.

Sagittarius Horoscope

(Nov 22 – Dec 21)

You prefer to fly beneath the radar today with the Moon hiding out in your 12th House of Escapism. However, you may have a lot more fun if you purposefully place yourself directly in the middle of the action. Nevertheless, you still might not feel very social now and it’s your choice if you decide to bow out of a previous commitment. There’s no reason to defend your actions as long as you remember to be nice when you say no. It’s not your responsibility to entertain everyone all the time.

Capricorn Horoscope

(Dec 22 – Jan 19)

You’re working harder than you like now, yet your heart might not be in your current job. You wish you could compartmentalize your feelings so you’re able to meet your financial responsibilities on schedule. However, you also want to make substantial progress toward your ideal career path. Fortunately, you can have your cake and eat it too if you don’t let your disappointment show today; waiting for just a few more days will bring you closer to living the life you want.

Aquarius Horoscope

(Jan 20 – Feb 18)

Your path to success might not be as direct as you wish today. Although you’re willing to take a circuitous route to accomplish your career objectives, it’s tricky to make a concrete plan if you can’t see where your current course is leading. It may be more advantageous now to temporarily set your long-term goals aside. Destiny is more likely to work its magic if you keep your dreams alive by focusing all your energy on the present moment.

Pisces Horoscope

(Feb 19 – Mar 20)

It may be disconcerting to observe how reality doesn’t match up to your expectations today. You might be inclined to choose to steer clear of any conversations that could touch on tough topics. Unfortunately, avoiding the shadows gives you a lopsided view now because you’re intentionally denying the larger issues at play. There’s nothing wrong with being optimistic, but you’ll be happier in the long run if you are operating in the real world right from the start.

The Sun in Scorpio: Fall Cleaning

The Sun in Scorpio:
Fall Cleaning

Shed your soul while the Sun and Saturn move through Scorpio

Jeff JawerJeff Jawer on the topics of sun, scorpio, blogs, astrology

The Sun enters Scorpio on October 23, initiating a descent into the depths of our emotions and the mystery of our soul’s purpose. While some do this with fear, this sign is not designed to cause pain, but to eliminate outmoded habits, reconnect with the seeds of life and become more fully alive.

It may seem odd to connect this inward turn of awareness with the power of life. The bare trees and shorter days ahead appear barren and lifeless. Yet this is a turning point when we decide whether to continue on our current paths or to give up the ghost. The investments we’ve made in relationships, careers and in our ambitions and dreams will encounter contracting forces that require even more commitment to sustain them or to elect to let them go. Will we blindly forge ahead as before, or will we challenge ourselves more deeply to recognize the goals that are leading us nowhere? That is the question.

These important decisions begin on an unconscious level because Scorpio is an emotional Water sign whose seeds are sown beyond the rational confines of the mind. It is by our instincts that the stage is set for what we choose to keep throughout the winter months to come. Scorpio is the sign of death and rebirth, of resurrection and regeneration. Its key is learning where to let go in order to grow. Releasing unfulfilled hopes and giving up on people and plans isn’t easy. Our egos are attached to the promises we’ve made to ourselves and others, and most of the time the ego wins.

Saturn in Scorpio raises the stakes

This year’s solar journey through Scorpio is the last time it will coincide with Saturn, the planet of karma and crystallization, also in Scorpio; he moves on to Sagittarius in December 2014. With Saturn in Scorpio, the stakes in the games we play are higher as the cost of inaction increases, but the rewards of clarity and consciousness are growing just as much. There will be choices made personally and collectively that will set in motion patterns that can shape our worlds for decades.

We live in acquisitive times, when having more and doing more are associated with success. Yet the never-ending hunger to accumulate objects and experiences can never be fully satisfied. We can shoot hundreds of photographs on digital cameras without taking the time to deeply examine any one of them. We have thousands of television stations, millions of books and an ever increasing number of websites to fill our heads with images and ideas. We collect information like some people collect clothes, filling the closets of our minds, yet feeling like we have nothing to wear.

Cleaning house

The Sun in Scorpio is a time to empty our drawers of fading dreams, to turn our pockets inside out and our purses upside down to look at what we’re carrying that we no longer need. This is not a form of sacrifice; it is a gift to ourselves. When we put down the loads of desire, doubt and unrewarding tasks we carry, we open ourselves to receive the wisdom, joy and pleasure of what we really need. These acts of personal liberation become models for other individuals and for institutions that appear to shape society. Corporations, governments and churches stuck with corruption, waste and destructive habits need us to show them the way and help all of us to to become free, happy and put on the path to achieve our highest potential.

Daily Cosmic Calendar for Friday, October 24th

If you are sensing some big changes about to occur on the horizon, your intuition is spot on. Tomorrow brings the first Sun-Venus conjunction since January 11 as well as the official Mercury turnaround into forward motion following a three-week retrograde cycle. Before those two events become reality, today’s astro-psychic agenda looks dazzling in a very favorable way. With the potency of the Sun and Venus entries into Scorpio from Thursday at your beck and call, three inspirational, 72-degree aspects provide a wide variety of revelations. Mercury makes the first of these 72-degree connections with the red planet Mars (2:00PM) and this is followed several hours later by Sun-Jupiter (7:10PM) and Venus-Jupiter (8:23PM) 72-degree sky configurations. This trio of divine harmony gives you plenty to crow about in your favorite arts, crafts and hobbies. In addition, business and professional matters have a rosier glow than usual — although with Mercury still retrograde you don’t want to leap headlong into agreements and long-term contracts until you feel that the coast is clear from the astrological perspective. [Note to readers: All times are calculated for Pacific Daylight Time. Be sure to adjust all times according to your own local time so the alignments noted above will be exact for your location.]
