You probably know your zodiac sign, the sign that you look up in your daily horoscope? It’s the one that the great Sun God was sailing through at the moment of your birth.
The energy of your Sun, or zodiac sign represents your basic nature and personality. It’s how you show up in the world. It’s what fuels you when you’re getting up in the morning; it’s your motivation, your raison d’etre. And the beauty of life is that every zodiac sign is different. There are 12 overarching blueprints within the zodiac, that humans use to show up in the world, and within each sign, every imaginable tiny permutation of thought, word, and action. And whilst your needs, desires and feelings are going to be inspired by different things from the Libra who lives next door, or the Virgo you sat next to on the bus this morning; your motivations aren’t going to be a million miles apart.
But wherever you lie astrologically, it’s only natural to need a little extra inspiration once in a while. From Aries to Aquarius, Cancer to Capricorn, we all get natural lulls in our Va Va Voom.

“Be tolerant of others and strict with yourself” – Marcus Aurelius
“If you obsess over whether you are making the right decision, you are basically assuming that the universe will reward you for one thing and punish you for another.
The universe has no fixed agenda. Once you make any decision, it works around that decision. There is no right or wrong, only a series of possibilities that shift with each thought, feeling, and action that you experience.
If this sounds too mystical, refer again to the body. Every significant vital sign- body temperature, heart rate, oxygen consumption, hormone level, brain activity, and so on- alters the moment you decide to do anything… decisions are signals telling your body, mind, and environment to move in a certain direction.” – Deepak Chopra
Quotes for Zodiac Sign Scorpio
Scorpio, your energy is strong, intense and needs to be channeled wisely. Yours is the horoscope of devotion: you are dedicated to the cause, the person or the partner which takes center stage in your world. And there they stay, fiercely protected!

“The only journey is the one within.” – Rainer Maria Rilke

“…have patience with everything unresolved in your heart and to try to love the questions themselves as if they were locked rooms or books written in a very foreign language. Don’t search for the answers, which could not be given to you now, because you would not be able to live them. And the point is to live everything. Live the questions now. Perhaps then, someday far in the future, you will gradually, without even noticing it, live your way into the answer.” – Rainer Maria Rilke
“Limitations live only in our minds. But if we use our imaginations, our possibilities become limitless.” – Jamie Paolinetti

“If you are falling… dive. We’re in a freefall into future. We don’t know where we’re going. Things are changing so fast, and always when you’re going through a long tunnel, anxiety comes along. And all you have to do to transform your hell into a paradise is to turn your fall into a voluntary act. It’s a very interesting shift of perspective and that’s all it is… joyful participation in the sorrows and everything changes.” – Joseph Campbell
