Your Sun Sign
Scorpio the Scorpion
Scorpio is determined, strong, intense, and often controlled. Anything that is superficial doesn’t appeal to the scorpion. It’s all or nothing! Scorpio is never content to look only at the surface of matters. Scorpio digs deep, questions motives, and instinctively feels what is going on in the environment around him or her.

Progressed Sun: Turning Points in Your Life
|We carry our Sun sign with us throughout our entire lives. If I’m a Scorpio, I’ll always be a Scorpio. However, in secondary progressions, the Sun “progresses” in a symbolic sense through our natal Sun sign, and then beyond it to subsequent signs. Secondary progressions are “a day for a year”, and because the Sun moves just under one degree per day, our Sun symbolically progresses just short of one degree every year of our lives. Because there are 30 degrees for every sign, if I was born in the latter days of a Scorpio Sun, my Sun would progress to the sign of Sagittarius in my early childhood, and to the sign of Capricorn in my early to mid-30’s. If I was born near the beginning of a Scorpio Sun, however, my progressed Sun would enter Sagittarius close to my 30th birthday, and to Capricorn in my late 50’s. The changeover of signs marks a critical turning point in a person’s life. At the very end of a sign (just before changing signs), individuals may make life-changing, impulsive decisions.|
Your progressed Sun enters Sagittarius at age 30. The ages of 29 to 31 mark a critical turning point in the development of your personality. After some sort of crisis of consciousness, and perhaps elimination of circumstances that have been limiting your growth, you begin to feel lighter, freer, and decidedly more outgoing. Your desire to learn increases, and your sense of humor is enriched. You are more flexible during this period as well.
Your progressed Sun enters Capricorn at age 59. The ages of 58 to 60 mark a critical turning point in the development of your personality. You become more practical, mindful, and concerned about your personal security. You are a self-starter, and you become more shrewd and focused on your goals.
Degree Meanings of your Sun
Sabian symbols present imagery associated with the degree of your Sun in Scorpio (or Libra, depending on your time of birth). Either of the following may apply, depending on the exact degree of your Sun:
If Sun is 28-29 degrees Libra:
“Three Mounds Of Knowledge On A Philosopher’s Head”
If Sun is 0-1 degrees Scorpio:
“A Crowded Sightseeing Bus On A City Street”
Harmonic Degree Meaning:
The following is the degree meaning of your Sun (0 degrees Scorpio) based on harmonic sign influences.*
“Quiet, intense, magnetic. Tries to be fair to everyone; concerned with equal rights for all people. Capable of great self-control when the cause is worthwhile.”
Numerology of October 23
You were born on the 23rd day, which reduces to a 5. You are expressive and quick-witted. You don’t want to–and probably don’t–miss anything. Factoring in the 10th month of October, you are a number 6. You possess extraordinary charm and you are fiercely protective of those you hold dear. Factoring in your birth year gives you your Birth Path Number—a highly personal number for you.
Most Favorable Days of the Month for you are 5, 14, 23, especially when these days (of any month) fall on Wednesday or Friday; and/or when the Sun is in Gemini or Virgo. The best colors for you are light grey, silver, white, and anything that glistens or shimmers. Avoid dark colors. You might want to wear diamonds or any shiny
jewels/stones next to your skin.
Birthday Forecast for You
2010 is a Number Nine year for you. Ruled by Mars. This is a year of completion and transition. It is a time when we need to let go of things that no longer serve their purpose, and hold on to things that have a future. It is a time of cleaning out dead wood, not necessarily for new beginnings. It can be a time when a burden has been taken off your shoulders, and it can be a year of giving of yourself. Advice – let go of things that are holding you back, give of yourself and express your sympathetic, compassionate side.
2011 is a Number One year for you. Ruled by the Sun. This is a year of action. The seeds you plant now, you will reap later. Others might find you less sociable, as you are busier than ever and you focus on your activities and your needs. Still, you are outgoing and your initiative is stronger than ever. Advice – Stand alone, take action, start fresh, express independence.
