Scorpio Horoscope (October 23 - November 21)
Your ruling planets are Mars and Pluto.
This month represents a difficult passage for you in some ways, Scorpio, but your attitude must remain hopeful. You are delving down into your feeling depths in order to find a way forward, reinventing yourself yet again. As you move through the February 20th Lunar Eclipse you may realize that, paradoxically, your connection with the world outside yourself depends entirely on how well you connect with your own deep center. This is the earth wisdom that you are coming to right now by a process of absorption that seems to have little to do with rational thought and much with inner weather.
As the month begins, you are facing new horizons in your life with verve and gusto, while at the very same time you are taking up a rather internal attitude toward self-exploration. This seems paradoxical but the truth is that the one feeds the other. Delving down into your depths is not mere naval-gazing, because you are coming up with the pearl of wisdom that will see you through the changes and challenges of these times. With the New Moon and Solar Eclipse of Wednesday, February 6th, you are feeling the crux of this dichotomy. On the one hand, you are feeling the freedom of action implied by the recent conversion to forward motion of your ruler Mars in your sector of personal evolution, and on the other feeling the inward nature of Mercury retrograding in what some astrologers call your "root cellar" where the wine of experience is stored. Your tribal relations and your connections with home and family, as well as your personal home base, and your psychological roots, are all up for you at this time. By seeing yourself more clearly and more whole, the world around you will be made more whole as a direct consequence. The First Quarter Moon of the following week, taking place on Wednesday, February 13th, reminds you that in spite of closely held ideals that serve you well right now, there is still an element of struggle in your equation. Since both Venus and your ruler Mars are involved in this configuration, the so-called battle of the sexes is very much part of your awareness at this time. As you prepare, both consciously and unconsciously, to come to that inner satori state which allows you to be seriously wacky and playfully responsible, the Full Moon and Lunar Eclipse of the 20th puts the icing on the cake regarding a new strategy of social interaction. This is also a moment when you will feel a powerful mandate to communicate your truth to those around you. You are very consciously taking into account the input of others but you must remember that you are above all concerned at this time with shining your own light.
