On 23rd October, the Sun leaves Libra and enters the magnetic and intense sign of Scorpio. This Water sign is one of the most intriguing signs of the zodiac, for it encompasses an astonishing amount of depth in character and often a Scorpio will have to battle between their light side and their dark side in order to reach wholeness and ultimate satisfaction. Anyone with their Sun or rising sign in Scorpio will understand this fully, but even if you have a lot of Scorpio in your natal chart which is not the Sun or rising, you will still feel the effects of it in your life.
This is a Fixed sign and their determination to see things through is one of their greatest strengths. Of all the signs, Scorpio is able to go through some of the most horrific storms of life and come out on the other side, stronger and wiser than ever before. They are loyal to the end and excellent to have around in a crisis; a Scorpio will never abandon you in a time of need. Though they are often a bubbling pot of emotions, Scorpio always plays with a poker face, making them difficult to read at times.
Those of a Scorpionic nature often come with a dark side; intense rages, obsessive jealousy, and depressive torment are not uncommon to them. This is why Scorpio is viewed as the sign of transformation – by transforming their darkness into light, they achieve the pinnacle of their purpose and can then help others going through the same struggles.

The card in the position of something I am hiding indicates that this is a side of me I am repressing. It could be due to insecurities or fears of being my ‘true self’. This indicates there is a Queen of Wands inside me that I am not releasing for one reason or another.
Card 2: 3 of Pentacles
The 3 of Pentacles is about working with others to achieve a goal. It is a card of teamwork. The card in this position indicates that the best way for me to deal with my repressed Queen of Wands is to reach out to others for help. This could mean joining a group or forum of people who can help build my confidence. It could mean taking part in a discussion group where I can talk openly and freely about my concerns, without fear.
Card 3: The Empress
The Empress is someone who ‘has it all’ so to speak; the Empress is comfortable in her own skin and loves herself and others in equal measure. The Empress knows her own worth and doesn’t seek validation or approval from others. She accepts her virtues and flaws in equal measure and possesses a quiet sort of confidence that radiates to all those who come into contact with her.
Overall: This reading tells me there is work to be done on my confidence and insecurities. If I should choose to reach out for help, then I can blossom into the Empress with time.
