Hidden Currents of Intensity
Scorpio season extends an invitation to investigate the deeper emotions driving your desires. As a fixed water sign, Scorpio signifies the hidden currents of intensity that lie beneath the surface. Though obscured from view, these strong feelings can suddenly sweep you away like rapids on a river. However, when you acknowledge, respect, and roll with these inner motivations, you transform and diversify the way you relate.
Next Level Honesty
After scrutinizing how you depend on others during Libra season, you now have the opportunity for next level honesty in your relationships, starting with the one you have with yourself. First, when your intense emotions pop up, notice how they mark the places that need your tender attention. As you tend to these triggers, you initiate the healing of old wounds. You can then navigate the razor’s edge between setting necessary protective boundaries and knowing how to be vulnerable with others. When you walk this path of self-knowledge, you become more able to tap your intuitive understanding and channel your emotional self into empowered actions.
Scorpio Season Overall
Scorpio season offers a time to experience the power of emotionally-informed action. As you get clear about your true feelings, what you do takes on a new gravitas. With the Sun, Mercury, and Mars all in Scorpio, you must become aware of how easily passion and intensity can come through your words and deeds. The Taurus Lunar Eclipse on October 28 suggests bringing closure to an evolutionary process that has been ongoing since late 2021. In the heart of the autumnal season, Halloween and Samhain signify the thinning of the veils between worlds. Be brave and embody your demons in an inspired costume!
The second week implies the possibility of giving form and structure to what you previously could only feel or imagine. By mid-season, Venus enters Libra and Mercury enters Sagittarius, where it immediately encounters disciplinarian Saturn. Your thoughts turn to serious matters. The trickiest day of the season is on November 11 (Veterans’ Day in the U.S.) when Mars opposing Uranus signifies unpredictability and volatility. Shortly thereafter, the Scorpio New Moon suggests committing to continue listening to your deep intuition. Investigate and embrace the spiritual ideals that give meaning to your life in a mythical context. As you stay with the process, you can make strides toward manifesting the transformation you’d like to see in these next few weeks.
