Scorpio Horoscope (October 23 - November 21)
Your ruling planets are Mars and Pluto.
A sudden change in the cosmic weather has you almost reeling, Scorpio, as you adopt a stronger stance on a helping role. You are going all out for education and ratiocination, and for connecting others up within a pathway forward for yourself that allows you to be of true service to the surrounding collective. Communication with others around you is key. You are jumping ahead of where you were standing only a few short weeks ago, desiring to make your daily existence count for more than a simple paycheck, but you still have much thinking and rethinking of your basic position before you are ready to commit. When you do finally launch, it will involve your deep interior process even more than your outer one.
As the month begins, you are feeling the heat of unformed priorities, an energy that excites and also surprises and confounds as well as motivates you. You know that you must be on your way to do what Jesus called "my father's work" – that dharma or task that you were put here on this earth to perform, this time around. And yet you perhaps do not really know where to go or even how to begin to find it. This is a month of confusion and you must let confusion reign, at least in part. There is a strong energy moving you forward, and an equally powerful factor holding you back, and in addition, Mercury is retrograding in your sector of day-to-day activity, health, and of your discipleship to your higher Self, so that it is hard to pin anything down. It is said that what is begun in a rush of momentum during the period of Mercury retrograde must be undone once it has safely returned to direct motion in mid-May. The New Moon of Monday, April 3rd, is a powerful one, and really lights up this area of your Solar chart. You inner world is calling you but the voice you hear is unclear. You possess boundless optimism on the one hand, and yet something in your depths seems to be holding you back, or at least warning you not to go where you are summoned until the stream runs clear. Relationship is a changing landscape for you right now and contributes to your process of spiritual evolution, and also to the crazed wonder of your situation. With the First Quarter Moon of Monday, April 11th, you are reaching a bend in the road; a place where further obstacles arise and where you will be tested in some way. There is a mystical madness that almost overtakes you now, but filled with joy also, as you recognize that certain aspects of your situation are simply not strictly of this physical world. Old and stultified belief systems will hold you back at this point while it is the new and emerging patterns of perspective that have the most promise, but which are relatively unknown and therefore scary. The Full Moon of Sunday, April 17th, and the days immediately following, bring you to a more pleasant and relaxed place, one where significant others in your life are definitely more in the picture – for the better for the most part. This will seem like a time when it is difficult to accomplish anything at all and yet also one where what you do accomplish will have a cosmic aspect and be longer lasting. You might feel as though you are being held back to no good effect but there is cosmic purpose in everything. With the Last Quarter Moon of Easter Sunday, April 24th, there will be further revelations and a broadening of perspective. You might encounter interpersonal difficulties at this time, but these events too have their benefits in terms of increased awareness. As the song says, "you can get shown the light in the strangest of places when you look at it right."
