Scorpio Horoscope (October 23 - November 21)
Your ruling planets are Mars and Pluto.
It's hard to wrap your mind around your future right now, Scorpio, but you're trying. Family and core psychological issues are poignant and perhaps over-idealized, or else hazy and indefinite to the point of confusion, so that you are being forced to come to new conceptions of where life is taking you at this time. Intimate partnership with others around you remains an important guidepost, but less central than formerly to your ultimate concern, which is tending your own garden for the time, in your own way. It's an idea that you're more and more comfortable with as the weeks unfold.
As the month begins, you feel yourself still taking on increased responsibility in your career and professional life, and at the same time getting more interested in exploring the deeper meaning of the world around you following the New Moon from the end of last month in your sector of higher mind. You are also still struggling with different takes on old patterns of security needs, perhaps beginning to see that in some profound way it is after all up to you to provide your own sense of security even when family and friends fail to provide for you. As Mercury retrogrades though your higher mind sector after the 4th, and during the remainder of the month, you will likely begin to see different sides of the same issues that you have been wrestling with lately. At the time of the Full Moon you are sharing your take on security needs only recently acknowledged with others around you, perhaps becoming more aware how much of life is unavailable to your conscious mind, similarly to the mysterious iceberg in which nine tenths of its volume remain unseen. By the time of the powerful Last Quarter Moon a week later, on Monday, July 17th, you are transforming in your understanding of what you need to get by and even to thrive on, based on a dawning awareness of what does and doesn't work for you long-term, and exactly what you can and cannot in the last analysis really count on. The last week of the month, beginning with the New Moon of Monday, July 24th, and including Mercury's direct motion as well, represents a major shift, both in philosophical attitude and real-world concern. You are coming to a brand new sense of your vocational possibilities in this world, more in line with inner ideals and the wisdom you have gained through trials and losses. Your sense of security is better based on inner rather than outer achievement, on self- rather than other-determined goals.
