Scorpio (23 October – 22 November)
There’s a lot of planetary activity this month in Pisces, one of your fellow water signs. Therefore, this is potentially a creative month for you, a time when you’re wise to encourage your inner artist or expand your ideas through visualisation.
Pisces rules the most creative sector of your horoscope and the things in life that you give birth to, including children, also your gifts and talents, your masterpiece. This is a romantic sector of your horoscope and it’s about embracing play more so than work and doing what you love.
Venus, the planet of love and relating, is in Pisces until the 7th. This is a gorgeous time for reaching out to other people, making connections and trusting your luck. If you fancy a flutter, it’s a wonderful time to do so. Be with people you care about, hang out with your nearest and dearest and use this lovely astrology to open your heart.
The other planet in Pisces for most of the month is Mercury, ruling communication and the mind. Mercury enters your fellow water sign on the 3rd. And, on the 19th, the Sun begins its annual transit through Pisces, the last sign of the zodiac.
With so much emphasis on the star sign Pisces, this is ideal for dreams and tapping in to the realm of the imagination. As a water sign, you know how to engage deeply with inspiration and ideas and activities that feed your soul. In fact, it’s imperative you do so.
As a Sun Scorpio, you have a laser focus and you love having something to get your teeth into that becomes your private obsession. The astrology suggests that this is a good month to lose yourself in a passionate or creative pursuit.
Money & Work
However, February isn’t all about escaping from everyday routine. In fact, it’s important that you balance both aspects of life, the everyday and the fantasy realm. This is because there’s strong emphasis on the fire signs, which for you are about money and work.
Your ruling planet, Mars, is in Sagittarius and your personal money sector up until the 16th and Mars gets a free run through the zodiac. Therefore, crack on with money-making ideas and financial projects sooner rather than later.
Plus, the Full Moon on the 9th falls in Leo and your career and vocation sector. This is a great date to trust your intuition and make a key decision about your next steps.
Also, the planet of relating, Venus, enters Aries and your work sector on the 7th where it remains until early March. This spells good news for teamwork, getting on the right side of your colleagues or working alongside other people towards a chosen goal.
Share ideas, brainstorm and don’t go it alone. This will benefit you not only when it comes to your work and routine, but also your lifestyle and health. Here too, collaborative ventures can pay off.
Mid-month brings a significant change in planetary energy. Firstly, your ruler, Mars, moves into Capricorn, your communication sector, where it remains until late March. Things are going to get heated in this area of your life next month.
For now, you need to keep close tabs on what you say and don’t believe everything you hear. This is because communication planet, Mercury, turns retrograde on the 17th and remains on go slow until March 10th. This is when you’re wise to take the pace slow and not be so assertive or directive as you might normally be.
Take time out if you can in the second half of February and allow yourself space to let your mind wander. Be close by water, whether you head for the sea or walk by the river. Be in nature and channel your emotions in to an uplifting activity. This might include art galleries, reading poetry, watching film, listening to music. This is most definitely a time when you can find your muse.
Also, there’s a New Moon in Pisces on the 23rd, a symbol of new beginnings. And, three days earlier, on the 20th, there’s a major planetary aspect between Jupiter in Capricorn and Neptune in Pisces. This combination is about big dreams and seeking inspiration. Notice who you meet or who comes into your life on or around these dates.
This could be a potentially disorienting and confusing time too, as your emotions lead the way. Perhaps, not everything will work out as you had hoped with Mercury on go slow. Stay with your feelings if you can as the best way to deal with them is to experience them fully to find your way through.
Someone may be back in touch with you during the Mercury retrograde phase and this whole experience could remind you of happy times and what’s gone before. It would be a lovely time to reconnect with a childhood sweetheart, as long as you don’t rush into anything new.
Plus, Uranus in Taurus and your relationship sector is active this month. The key date for you is the 22nd when Mars and Uranus align. Note also, the 5th, 21st and 29th. Uranus is the planet linked to twists and turns so relationships could most definitely be intriguing.
You might choose an unconventional or younger partner or be ready to experiment with your love life. There’s an ‘anything goes’ feel to Uranus moving through your relationship sector so expect the unexpected and don’t hold on tight.
For some of you, events could easily be romantic this month with the strong focus on Pisces and your romance sector as well as the Uranus aspects. Enjoy yourself but feel your way forwards after the 17th until Mercury is back up to speed on March 10th.
