Your ruler the Sun is in Scorpio and your home and family sector until the 22nd. This may be a time when you’re involved in home or property matters or family need your time and attention. Scorpio is one of the emotional water signs and it’s important that you trust your intuition when it comes to home and family decisions.
There are other factors this month intensifying the Scorpio energy. Here’s the pattern
Planets in Scorpio:
- Mars (action/drive) – all month
- Sun (illumination) – until the 22nd
- Mercury (communication) – 5th to 24th
The Sun isn’t in Scorpio alone as talk planet Mercury is here and action planet Mars. Plus, on the 10th, there’s a Mercury/Mars conjunction in Scorpio. This combination is direct and forthright and a time when you may want to push ahead with property plans or a family business.
Yet, on the same day the 10th, both planets are squared by Saturn in Aquarius and your opposite star sign. This is your relationship sector so consider who’s standing in your way. It may be the authorities, a parent or a partner. It does suggest that this month will flag up where limitation or restrictions lie.
Plus, you may not want to feel held back or restricted any longer. Uranus is in pole position this month, the planet of change. Uranus is currently in Taurus at the peak of your horoscope.
The first time you’ll experience the Uranus factor is during the New Moon in Scorpio on the 4th. On this day, both the Sun and Moon are opposed by Uranus and this combination is lively. A New Moon is a symbol of new beginnings but Uranus is volatile and unpredictable. A shift in one area of your life could necessitate a sudden move in another.
Later in the month, Mercury and Mars clash with Uranus on the 13th & 17th. You may realise that the bigger picture in life is shifting with Uranus in your career and vocation sector. This favours freedom and freelance work, being an activist or doing things differently.
Also this month, a new eclipse cycle begins cutting across the Taurus/Scorpio axis of the zodiac. This is important for you because these two star signs fall at the peak and base of your horoscope.
Taurus rules your career and vocation, your status and reputation, your future and where you’re heading. Scorpio represents your home and family, your past and where you come from.
The Full Moon Lunar Eclipse on the 19th highlights these key areas of your life. It’s shining a light on your current situation, exposing where change is required. Sometimes during eclipses, the unexpected kicks in acting as the trigger for change.
You may feel pulled in different directions during the Lunar Eclipse. You might find it hard to juggle home and work. Or, you feel unsure where your priorities lie or what to do next.
Notice where you’re being called forth and what home means to you. If you’re not happy with where you live or your career, this will be noticeable during the Full Moon phase. This is the start of a new eclipse cycle shaping the foundations of your life which continues until October 2023.
Rest of the Month’s Astrology
The planet of relating Venus is in Capricorn from the 5th onwards and your work and health sector. This is a perfect combination for teamwork and getting the right people on your side. It suggests finding the right health practitioner too.
Venus teams up with Uranus on the day of the eclipse, the 19th, and this could point you in the right direction or show where support lies. However, it’s also possible that someone else could get the job or position you were hoping for.
On the 22nd, your ruling planet the Sun enters your fellow fire sign Sagittarius. This is gorgeous for you and a much easier vibe than planets in Scorpio. It’s as if you’re moving from the dark (Scorpio) into the light (Sagittarius). Sagittarius rules all the good things in life in your horoscope, like romance, children & pregnancy, creative projects, entertainment and luck.
Two days later on the 24th, talk planet Mercury joins the Sun here. Life is calling you out to line up some fun events. Plus, on the 29th & 30th, you may be able to make a key agreement that benefits a relationship in your life, either personal or professional.
Eclipse Do’s & Don’ts
Eclipse season is here and a new Taurus/Scorpio eclipse cycle is underway. Here are some eclipse tips:
- Try not to fear an eclipse – they are a reminder that we’re not always in control.
- Don’t choose an eclipse date to launch a project or start something new.
- Wait a few days after an eclipse before taking action. Eclipse symbolism is shadowy and hidden.
- Once the eclipse shadow lifts, then you can try to take advantage of any changes that have occurred.
- Know that the eclipses are closely linked to the karmic nodes & wheel of destiny – they offer a turning point.
