“The fear of the unknown is what keeps most people stuck in a cycle. Instead of giving yourself a sunny pep talk, embrace what’s coming up. Explore your worries and shine a light on those monsters under the bed. By acknowledging what’s buried you can embark on a journey that’s not just successful, but also amazingly nourishing to your soul.” -Astrotwins

“The Phoenix is the symbol of Scorpio. In ancient times the Phoenix was a symbol of the Sun that was said to live for 500 years. At the end of its life it built a funeral pyre and burned in the flames, only to regenerate its progeny from those very flames. The Scorpio nature cannot run from the destruction of the fire of its emotional intensity, but within that fire is the secret of immortality and resurrection.” -Lynn Hayes
