Scorpio Horoscope (October 23 - November 21)
Your ruling planets are Mars and Pluto.
This is still a time of deep reflection, Scorpio, even though your vision for the future is very active now. These ideas are taking you mentally where you need to go. You are seeking a better fit with an internal soul purpose that is becoming clearer to you by the day. Be advised, however, that it might take you a lot longer to get the actual walking of your talk into true alignment with your fledgling concept. You could be struggling somewhat at this time as well with ancient issues. You are engaged in discovering your true self-concept and making of your fundamental service orientation an act of conscious sharing rather than one of knee-jerk reaction to early conditioning and to feelings of lack. When you discipline yourself to watch and wait, you will find the right direction to allow your feet to travel.
As the month begins, you are feeling energized in the wake of last month’s Christmas Eve New Moon that conjuncted your ruler Pluto and fired up your communications sector as well. One consequence – one that you have no doubt been increasingly aware of – is terrific communicative outreach that is both idealistic and passionately intense while at the same time subject to sudden alterations and discontinuities. Pluto and Uranus are once again in the midst of their forming square, so that over this entire year the pressure will mount within you for meaningful change. One way of seeing your true situation regarding this would be to imagine that there is an army full of revolutionary enlightenment just over the next horizon and it is inexorably marching your way. Another might be to recognize that there is an evolutionary necessity being thrust upon you now, in your climb up the mountain of your destiny, such that you will see yourself and your world entirely differently by the time you get to the next ridge. Although these changes involve access to information, habitual thought forms and higher mind perspective, they really reflect changes to your entire being as seen through the lens of these important areas of your life, including teaching and learning and the exploration of new mental horizons. As the weeks go by, at some point the incentives for transformation become more important than the conservative urge for holding back, although both of these are powerful forces that are currently operating within your psyche. You are entering into a six-month period in which these factors will continue to grow, perhaps even exponentially, as you head into the spring and the first exact hit of the outer-planet heavyweights Uranus and Pluto, while the third member of this team, namely Neptune, crosses over into your sector of self-expression as early as next month, revivifying your creativity and bringing also a component that is dreamy and vague to every product of your imagination. Next month also, Saturn stations within half a degree of your identity sector, which we would have to characterize as an important near miss, a taste of what you will experience in October of this year, when it finally crosses, that is to say a slowing down and a concentration upon your isolated self. This is obviously somewhat of a trial but also has the benefit of allowing you to really focus on the transformation with which you are at present so powerfully engaged. The Full Moon of late Sunday evening, January 8th, brings these themes to your attention even more strongly, since it touches all these factors in the current skies, highlighting their effects. You might feel as though you were being forced to take a stand for what you concretely espouse and are willing to fight for, in terms of what you believe to be the right path for you to follow from an inside perspective. These ideals could perhaps seem to go against the grain of consensus thinking but yet might seem totally right to you from an intuitional standpoint, and the difficulty comes in deciding which road ahead makes most sense to you right now. With the Last Quarter Moon of Monday, January 16th, you are re-evaluating these and other matters that have come up over the course of these past three weeks since the New Moon, summing up your truest response in the face of potential criticism. Old and perhaps essentially dysfunctional patterns of behavior could come up for you and evidence themselves as, rather than assisting you to get away from the starting line and achieve forward motion, contributing to factors that are holding you back. You might feel that some of your past decisions were being made from a standpoint of lack rather than from a place of abundance so that the contrast could seem dramatic. Working through these realizations is a challenge but the rewards are obviously there for you when you do. The New Moon of Sunday evening, January 22nd, brings fresh energy and an even stronger intention, continuing from a deeply internal perspective. You are still fighting the good fight in your quest for wholeness, summoned by the universe to be the best that you can be and still be yourself, and rising to the occasion.
