Scorpio Horoscope (October 23 - November 21)
Your ruling planets are Mars and Pluto.
You are quietly morphing, Scorpio. This month represents an introspective time, when you might find both satisfaction and also dissatisfaction with the way that things are with you. The good news is that you have the power of imagination that can take you out of your everyday world in an instant, leading to a powerful opportunity to make needed course corrections. As the cycle unfolds you will begin to fly your true colors, although the final denouement might have to wait until after the end of the month. You are deadly serious at this time about making a difference in the world, and the world in turn makes a difference in you.
As the month begins, you are mulling over your condition, wondering where in the world your life might be taking you at this juncture. You are finding both confusion and an abiding sense of spiritual presence that comes from looking more deeply within yourself. As you emerge from what has been in many ways a difficult summer, especially in terms of clarity of purpose, you nevertheless can count up the rewards also that stem from these last few weeks and months; better bonds perhaps with family and loved ones and tribal connection everywhere. Now you are concerned with plugging yourself into society in some very new and different ways as the result of these blessings. The Full Moon that comes along in the first weekend of the month, on Friday, September 4th, brings an innovative sense of possibility into the picture that might contrast with a serious sense of purpose that sees the limitations rather than the freedom from restriction that is also an important part of your makeup right now. You are seeing the world a bit differently these days and that process will continue over the next few weeks and on into October. When Mercury retrogrades just two days later in your sector of societal connection it inclines you toward review and redefinition of what you are attempting in this current cycle. The Mercury retrograde period lasts at least through to the end of the month and is a better time for reflection and revisiting existing plans than for making brand new ones. The Last Quarter Moon of Friday, September 11th, also contains within it the seed of great changes in your consciousness. You are seeing more clearly than before what does and doesn't work for you right now, and experiencing the contrast between jumping ahead with brave schemes versus staying the course of a preexisting arrangement. This contrast is even more evident with the New Moon of Friday, September 18th, when Saturn opposes Uranus almost exactly, and when their competing archetypal energies suggest both the conservative and the innovative approach. There is no easy compromise, yet it is important to attempt to integrate these antithetical energies as you work through this alignment over the remaining two weeks of the month. Balance is the key. You are definitely educating yourself over this current monthly cycle and constantly reformulating your point of view. New ways of seeing can bring solutions where none was earlier to be found. The influence of Spirit is also all-important, as the final weekend of the month will undoubtedly reveal to you. The universe routinely makes a way out of no way, and this talent is yours to enjoy and to employ when you fully open your heart and mind to accept it.
