My political preference is changing. Astrologically this began shortly after Jupiter went retrograde in the Sign of Scorpio back on March 8th. Jupiter is a big planet, and Scorpio is the Sign that rules transformation. This is a big transformation that’s taking place in my life. Jupiter is the planet of expansion, and I look forward to building upon and expanding the scope of my newly adopted point of view! It’s also important to note that even though Scorpio is the Sign of the scorpion, sometimes a phoenix can be considered as an evolved Scorpio. I’m not a Scorpio, but this may have to do with why I kept seeing a phoenix so many times recently. Even though Scorpio is the element of water, and a phoenix is the element of fire, they both share the quality of transformation. Mars used to be the ruler of Scorpio, and Mars is associated with the element of fire, but in contemporary astrology, Pluto is the ruler of Scorpio. What’s also interesting is that Jupiter is also symbolic of the element of fire, and right now Jupiter is transiting the water Sign Scorpio. You can see in the picture above how I documented the instances where I came across several things that resembled the bird of fire.
