Scorpio: 23.10 - 22.11
When the Sun enters Scorpio the life force is retreating into the dark, murky underworld. The growth is dying back and going into dormancy awaiting warmer, brighter days. Nevertheless, Scorpio stays alive in that underworld, regenerating his energy and inner resources so that he can burst forth as soon as Spring comes around. Scorpios draw on that inner resourcefulness, the hidden depth of their personal underworld. That is where they get their boundless energy, which they apply to any chosen focus with single-minded determination. Where Libra only sees the beauty, Scorpio sees the beast lurking just behind. He has no qualms to draw attention to it either - though other signs will prefer to ignore it. That is one of the things that make Scorpio unpopular. Another is his tendency to protect his feelings by putting up an impenetrable wall. He cannot stand to appear weak and will 'bite off his tongue to spite his face' rather than admit to vulnerability. Where Libra likes to harmonize, Scorpio loves the contrast, the extremes, the tension created by disparity. He wants to penetrate and delve into the mysteries and is not afraid of any ghosts. He can be uncompromising, stubborn and unforgiving. If misdirected he can identify with the dark aspects of life and apply himself with total determination to the most perverted goals. But it seems as though Scorpio needs to go though his personal 'hell' and face his inner demons before he can be reborn and rise from the fire, purified and ready to soar like the eagle, the other symbol of this ambivalent sign. Scorpio benefits from Uranus to raise his sights to cosmic dimensions. He may also benefit from Mercury as a means to express his unfathomable mind and depth of feeling.
Candles can be burnt to create a special ambience at any time, though their soft light is particularly conducive for romantic occasions. Candles are widely used for spiritual and magical work. Ritualistic candle burning aids concentration on a specific magical intent. As you focus on the flame visualize your intentions being consumed and transformed into ethereal thought forms. Energy follows thought. To turn your dreams, wishes and visualizations into realities, follow thought with action, charged with the cosmic energy of the sacred fire.
To ensure best results and minimise any possible dangers, please take heed of the following precautions: Burn candles for one hour per inch of diameter to ensure even burning. The wax needs time to warm up and melt. Burning the candle for less than the recommended time will usually result in a hole burning down the middle of the candle and the wick will eventually drown. Keep the wick trimmed to about ¼ inch to reduce smokiness and dripping. Always burn candles on suitable surfaces, preferably fire-proof dishes or candleholders, which will also catch any dripping wax. Don't expose lit candles to draughts as this results in uneven burning an excessive drippiness. Keep candles out of sunlight to preserve their colours. Use your common sense when playing with fire. Keep candles out of reach of children and animals.
