Happy birthday scorpions! Though my sun sign is Taurus, I have predominantly Scorpio energy in my chart and I really really love this time of year. All things macabre, ghoulish, sexy, devious, and spooky, yes please!
We’re pelvis-deep in the zodiac wheel now, creeping into Scorpio’s haunted house. Scorpio is a black widow; a witch; a moonless night; a shaman; a secret; a wolf howling in the cold; a hidden lair. Her mythological counterparts are Kali and Lilith. See her slinking at midnight, burning with desire. Scorpio is intellectual and intense as she probes for insight, psychoanalyzing all who cross her path. She is hungry for your soul yet fiercely protective of her own.
Scorpio’s specialty is acknowledging and healing trauma. This is a dark and serious time, even in normal years. Now we are more overwhelmed than ever. Meditation is crucial to remain sane. Shit is about to get real, and we need strength and self-discipline. It’s time to take a closer look at how we expend our sexual energy as well. Scorpio rules the genitals and bladder in the body. She emanates from svadhisthana, the sacral chakra; focus here in meditation. Celebrate the first day of this season with Scorpio Yoga.
When we transition from Scorpio to Sagittarius, we will ascend from the sacral chakra to the fiery solar plexus chakra. The essence of Sagittarius, the constellation following Scorpio, comes from somewhere. It begins in Scorpio. The scorpion is a netherworld guide prepping us for joy and luminescence. We need Scorpio’s morbid shades and piercing inquiry before we can fly to the centaur’s higher skies.
Important dates: on Oct 25, the sun meets up with Mercury Retrograde in Scorpio for a conjunction. This is the best (read: only) day during Mercury Rx to do anything like travel, sign a document, etc. Mercury Retrograde ends on Nov 3, which is Election Day here in the US. WTAFFFFF
On Oct 27, Mercury retrogrades all the way back to Libra, and Venus transitions from Virgo to Libra as well.
October is really delicious this year because it features two full moons (aka blue moon) – one on the 1st of the month and the second on Halloween. However, the Halloween blue moon looks really contentious because the sun will directly oppose Uranus Retrograde in Taurus. Don’t count on anything going to plan; unusual or unexpected outcomes are highly likely.
The sun trines Neptune Retrograde in Pisces on Nov 9. Prepare for vivid dreams, dynamic lady time, and revisiting the past in conversation. Don’t get too excited though because Venus and Mars Retrograde in Aries are facing off that morning. This is a very fatiguing, and sometimes painful, influence for the mind and body.
Mercury rejoins the Scorpio party one day later on Nov 10; Venus joins on Nov 21, just a few hours before the Sagittarius solar cycle begins. And some good news to finish: Mars Retrograde will finally be over on Nov 13, yayyy.
Take care out there everybody <3
