Scorpio – October 23-November 21 – Ruled by the planets Mars and Pluto and named after the Latin and Greek word for Scorpion, Scorpio is the eighth sign of the zodiac. The color is dark red and dark blue, the element is water and the sign is fixed. Scorpios are the divers of the zodiac and have the capacity to go to incredible depths below the surface of their emotions and swim in the deep waters of their own and other people’s psyche. Strongly sexual, and immensely passionate they are often known as the sex sign of the zodiac. They are a water sign and deeply emotional and yet ruled by Mars they contain a fire in them that allows them to achieve and succeed, rebirth and transform.
Scorpios are unique in the zodiac in that they have three symbols to illustrate their evolving potential nature. The scorpion is the lowest vibrational level of a Scorpio, self-protective, deeply shy, moody and with a sharp sting if attacked or hurt. This lowest element of a Scorpio can hold grudges and resentments, feel jealous and slighted easily by its over sensitivity and be prone to seeking out its solitary depths.
The second evolutionary symbol of a Scorpio is the eagle. The eagle has learnt to transform and rise above its own dark emotions and wounds and soars to great heights to find higher wisdom and spiritual truths. The eagle has a piercing perception and not much manages to escape its gaze. Deeply connected to both the higher spiritual mystery and the deep dark underworld of human existence, the eagle element of a Scorpio is reached when one has surpassed and overcome their inner demons. The third evolutionary symbol is that of the phoenix where one is almost drowned by the depths of their own emotional waters and yet with a fierce will and intuitive perception they are able to transcend their lower natures and be reborn into their higher self, one of deep compassion, love and wisdom…© Jo Jayson 2018

Aries – March 21/21 – April 19/20 – Ruled by the planet Mars, named after the Roman God of War and with the symbol of the headstrong Ram, Aries is a cardinal sign meaning they are the initiators of the zodiac. The color is red, the element is fire and Aries being the first sign of the zodiac allows for no surprise that those born with their sun in Aries tend to be natural born leaders. Rarely following a crowd but instead excelling in achieving their goals, competitive to the end and comfortable in their confidence and determination.
Independent and assertive they have incredible focus and discipline allowing them to reach great success and high regard in their workplace. Ruled by the element of fire, they have a short fuse, can sometimes become aggressive and moody if they do not learn to harness their impatience properly or they find themselves in a work situation or relationship that is not challenging enough.
Brave but impulsive, strong but often blunt they struggle sometimes to slow down and just be in the now. Inside and within their tough and strong willed exterior they have a sweetness and a softness that is usually only shared with those close to them. Passionate and independent, the Aries ram blazes the way forward at the beginning of the zodiac and on the annual northern spring equinox, symbolizes a new life force each year, filled with optimism, new goals and new paths to success. Their flowers thistles, honeysuckle and red tulips, reflect the new season of spring and the bold prickly yet sweet passionate nature of the Aries……© Jo Jayson 2018
