Scorpio (24 October – 21 November)
This isn’t a month when you can easily hide away. If at times you don’t feel in a position of strength, it’s still wise to adopt a fearless attitude even if sometimes you have to fake it till you make it.
Your ruling planet Mars is now in Gemini, the sign of communication. Gemini rules an intriguing part of your chart that’s closely linked to your sign of Scorpio. This is about the areas that are difficult to reach, inner communication, reading between the lines, looking below the surface of life.
Mars here can feel quite intense and full on for you but you’re not usually someone who shies away from the transformational side of life. Delve deep into your psyche this month but also talk about what you find. Mars in Gemini is the perfect talking cure.
Plus this month the Full Moon takes place in your sign of Scorpio on the 10th. This is another indication that you’re dealing with the highs and lows of life and the deeper you dig, the more you discover.
A Full Moon in your sign of Scorpio is potentially witchy or magical so use this Full Moon to tune into your psychic powers and natural intuition. Full Moons are often peak moments in the month when matters come to completion and what’s hidden emerges. This would be a good time to make an important decision, to tune in to your inner motivations.
This may be related to a close relationship, either personal or professional. During the Full Moon, the Moon in Scorpio opposes the Sun in Taurus and your relationship sector. So this is about your 1-to-1’s, whether it coincides with a new beginning or an ending. It feels like a pivotal moment in the month, a significant turning point.
The Sun remains in Taurus until the 20th and this can mean that you’re not the one in control or in charge. You might have to hand over the reins of life to someone else or perhaps you’re waiting on other peoples’ knowledge or expertise.
The Sun represents vitality so when it opposes your own sign, it’s a good idea to look after yourself and not take on too much. Give in to this planetary energy and let other people pick up the slack or encourage others to help you.
When it comes to relationships, here too there’s plenty to examine and discover. If you’re a typical Scorpio, you love 1-to-1 connections as intimacy and analysis are part of your make-up. The deeper your connection with other people, the better and this month has the potential to be transformational.
So go in deep with other people whether you’re the one who’s coaching others or you’re enjoying intimate heart-to-hearts. The Sun teams up with your co-ruler Pluto on the 9th, a wonderful day to connect with someone close.
Then on the 16th, communication planet Mercury enters Taurus and it too lines up with Pluto on the 31st. This could turn out to be quite an extraordinary month for your relationships with the potential for great learning on both sides.
Yet a love relationship isn’t necessarily straightforward now although things could progress at a fast lick. Love planet Venus is currently in fire sign Aries and is now back up to speed. Venus in Aries is direct and powerful and if you’re in a relationship or married, your partner may be on a mission.
They could also have their own agenda and it feels as if you and someone close are on different tracks rather than moving forward hand in hand. Love planet Venus clashes with your co-ruler Pluto on the 25th and this often symbolises strong emotions on both sides. It’s not a connection that promises harmony so allow each other space and distance when necessary.
Money and work are also key factors of the month ahead and here there is a sense of progress. Communication planet Mercury turns retrograde in Aries and your work sector on the 3rd. This may flag up news about a job or contract. Plus Mercury turns direct close to unpredictable Uranus and this can symbolise a surprise, an offer that happens out of the blue.
Venus is also in Aries so work colleagues play an important role in your life this month. Look out for people who can help you and focus on team work. If you know that you have a tendency to be overly independent, make an effort to learn from others and be diplomatic with your associates or colleagues. It’s a good idea to keep on the right side of everybody this month because you don’t know who has the most influence.
Mars in Gemini lights up your joint finance sector so you may be negotiating money matters now or looking at ways to earn or invest more. The 12th and 31st are key dates for getting ahead financially, whether a private benefactor steps in or you have a chance to earn extra cash through your work.
The 11th and 29th are more complex dates for money when you recognise what’s holding you back or where your faith is being tested. Yet the major planetary aspect this month is between Saturn in Sagittarius and your personal money sector and technological Uranus in Aries and your work sector.
This takes place on the 19th and is one of the major themes of the year. It’s about finding new ways to improve your money management or get ahead financially. This might include using the internet to source new ideas or get up-to-date with latest methodologies or technology. Revolutionise your money mindset now and find new ways to be resourceful or seek inspiration.
The New Moon on the 25th also lights up your joint finance sector and this spells good news for an inheritance, investment or savings scheme. New Moons are an active symbol of new beginnings.
