Tip of the Week:
Scorpio time begins on October 23 under the waning yet still bright Moon. Ever a mysterious time, at least here in the middle reaches of the Northern Hemisphere, this 1-month cycle coincides with very noticeable shorter days of sunlight, pinchy-cold weather often accompanied by dense overcast skies and rain bordering on sleet, as leaves fall from trees with accelerating magnitude. So, yes, the season matches the themes associated with the sign which include death and decay, yet ever also with the promise of rebirth, once the transformation and regeneration process is complete. This year, Mars and Mercury will accompany the Sun, adding to the potency on October 30 and November 5 respectively. As destiny has it, the Sun will form an exact hard square to Saturn coinciding with Halloween adding weight and intrigue. Fortunately, Venus in Sagittarius will help uplift the overall energy pattern but due to its correspondence with Jupiter and Saturn in Aquarius, it will coincide with the drum beats of revolution.
Aries (Mar 21 – Apr 19)
The Sun in Scorpio cycle is meant to have a regenerative effect on you. Whether it does or not depends on your awareness and/or at least your instinctive inclination to align and engage. Mercury and Mars currently in Libra are activating your determination to engage in dialogue and debate regarding what is right and wrong.
Taurus (Apr 20 – May 20)
The Sun in Scorpio cycle will activate themes of activity and change in your relationship life. These can extend to your social status and career as well as family and friends. You should be ready for complexities which will deepen progressively over the coming weeks. Determined to push through opposition, you will seek allies for support.
Gemini (May 21 – Jun 21)
Health considerations and concerns will become more evident starting this week. It could be as basic as a change of diet or an urge to purge and cleanse your organs with herbs. Seeing through and beyond popular notions of what is good for you is featured. Natural remedies and approaches will hold extra appeal.
Cancer (Jun 22 – Jul 22)
Scorpio time tends to be a creative cycle for you. This will likely prove especially true this year. Your desires and ambitions will be ignited as well and will be guided by a rebellious and/or inventive lead. Getting organized and creating a new sense of order close to home is featured. Circumstances may, however, require more than you desire to.
Leo (Jul 23 – Aug 23)
Matters are shaking close to home. This will become increasingly evident over the coming weeks. Many thoughts are running through your mind as you look to the future. You want to expand your outreach and are committed to doing so, yet you are wise to get organized and focus to learn the technical knowledge required.
Virgo (Aug 24 – Sep 22)
You may notice whether by choices made or by circumstances that your energy levels are rising. This will support you to further your ambitions and get the work done that you know you need to do. Balancing material with spiritual aspirations is featured. By now, you have learned that people you once thought you could rely upon have left the stage.
Libra (Sep 23 – Oct 22)
Building upon and perhaps changing or renovating existing foundations feels important now. Your ambitions will rise steadily over the coming days and weeks. This will lead you to deepen your research. Entertaining a variety of cultural and/or philosophical angles also plays a prominent role. Balancing creative zeal with patience is important.
Scorpio (Oct 23 – Nov 21)
The Sun in your sign signifies a pioneering cycle. This will prove especially strong when Mars also enters Scorpio next week. Getting clear in your focus, however, may prove a bit more challenging. It may take a couple of weeks for the fog to clear. Using this energy to engage your confidence and courage to claim talents ready to be claimed will bring success.
Sagittarius (Nov 22 – Dec 21)
The revolution is on and you are a revolutionary. Which side of the battle you are on is another matter. The most important thing is that you are true. Yet, are your convictions as sound as you believe? Are you guided by survival instincts or by intuitions; they certainly are not the same thing, as some assume. Rumble on…
Capricorn (Dec 22 – Jan 19)
Getting seen and heard may not be as easy as you thought. Yet, you are prepared to push a little harder now and in a patiently persistent way. This includes getting the attention of key players in positions of power. A mix of returns on investment, desire for expansion and restriction and delay must be managed.
Aquarius (Jan 20 – Feb 19)
Seeing the bigger, deeper picture continues. Yet, the time has come to refine your perspectives. Aspirations to get to the core and essence will guide your focus in the coming weeks. There is no absolute or final word or perspective. Yet, you can see more clearly, more subtly and more truly. Wherever you arrive, the reward is your own. Do not compare.
Pisces (Feb 20 – Mar 20)
The next major phase of purification begins this week. Up to now, the main emphasis has been on your body and lifestyle to achieve a new balance. Now the focus turns to your mind. A meditative focus will likely yield the best results. The purging and rebalancing implied could prove genuinely enlightening. At least, breaking free of negative habits will prove liberating.
