Pericles in Shakespeare’s Pericles, Prince of Tyre (1.1.121-3)
Sun moves into Sagittarius Nov. 21, 2017 — 9:03 PM (Plus or minus for time zones).
Doing so promises a wonderful set of conditions ahead. Paves the way for a bright Scorpio year, and after what we’ve all been through? Wouldn’t that be better?
The late, great singer/songwriter, Townes Van Zandt once noted from the stage that, “Folk singing is about 20 percent writing and signing, and about 80 percent driving.” He was alluding to the years on the road. For many long years, looking at vast expanses of Texas highway, I preferred inexpensive commuter air rather than driving. However, I’d agree that I spent more time traveling and less time doing real work. Part and parcel of the gig, whether I’m an astrologer, he was a folk singer. It’s a variation on the 90/10 Rule, or the 99/1, where the job is 10% inspiration and 90% perspiration. Personally?
Kings are earth’s gods; in vice their law’s their will;
And if Jove stray, who dares say Jove doth ill?

Pericles, Prince of Tyre (1.1.103-4)
As a Scorpio, this week unfolds with a myriad of allusions to previous events, then, there’s some foreshadowing for next week, and then, too, there’s that resolution to a small problem in the Scorpio sub-plot, leftover from the second chapter. Got all that?
You can endlessly complicate this, or you can just plow ahead. Personally looking at motion and relative motion? I’d suggest you just plow ahead. For the parts that you did outline? Yes, stick to the outlined plans. But for most of this? Ah, heck, just wing it like I do.
Follow plans that are in place, but you can make up stuff to fill in the parts you didn’t plan.
Many happy Solar Returns to my extra-fine Scorpio friends, fans and flames. To the regular Scorpio buddies, then? Meh. But to the ones who notice that the sun is brighter, the sky seems a little more crisp and the weather makes the atmosphere feel sharper, more alive? Yes, you’re the ones, “Extra-Fine.” It’s a gradation and applies, even now. Between the machinations of a few planets, most notably, the Sun and Jupiter, with a slight boost as Mercury is at the tail-end of Scorpio, but all of that adds up to motion.
The Secret to Scorpio Success in the next few days is action. Motion, action, keep putting one foot in front of the other, figuratively, or literally, one foot in front of another. Action. Motion. Direction.
As the weekend arrives, so does Mercury. Mercury tends to infuse a sense of needing to communicate, and while that’s all well and good, not everyone wants to listen to what we’ve got say. Bless our Sagittarius souls. Kind of problem, we’re full of good information, and no one wants to listen. See how this works?

Scorpio: “Wow, I didn’t think that one through. Oops! My bad!”
There’s always a second one, though, might help.
Scorpio: “Oops, my bad. Wait, I meant to do that.”
The two expressions are not unrelated, as there’s a way they can fit together. However, I’d be a better person if I suggest you think it through, first. But given where the planets are?
Scorpio: (With confidence) “Yeah, I meant to do that.”
Sun enters Scorpio October 22, 2017 11:26 PM.
(Death by inches usually implies a painful ending.)
Examining the roots, the Libra roots, that helps in a big way to move forward. There’s a simple adjustment to make, and it doesn’t take long, and it’s not a big deal, but a simple adjustment. Happy belated birthday and enjoy the good parts. Roots, all about roots.
Achilles in Shakespeare’s Troilus and Cressida V.viii.17-20
Having seen this one play several times, on stage, in London, it’s a strange one. I read it as a “Black comedy” first time I encountered it. Subject to interpretation, and your mileage may vary. “The dragon wing of night” inspired me, for this week’s scope. Bit of a mixed metaphor.
Sun’s in Libra, we can all see both sides?
As much as I adore my little Scorpio friends, there’s always that totally fixed nature about them. Stubborn, to some, while I do prefer the term, “Tenacious,” seriously, that’s just a nice way to say “stubborn as all get out.” That being duly noted?
