Scorpio Horoscope (October 23 - November 21)
Your ruling planets are Mars and Pluto.
You are reaching out for others now, Scorpio, but finding there a complex interaction that leads you back to yourself. You are moving through loss to acceptance, and through abundance of connection into solitary contemplation. It was a wise person who said that “life and death, though stemming from each other, seem to conflict as stages of change,” and the same applies to your current ups and downs. You win when you can take both sides in without blinking or being swayed too violently from one end of the scale to the other. Over the course of this climactic monthly period, old patterns of dysfunctional behavior might very well come up for acknowledgment and recognition, but if so, the very depth of your experience will lead you powerfully forward into wholeness.
As the month begins, you are filled with vitality, reaching out to others around you in new ways and tracking with the changes that have been coming down lately, particularly since the 20th of the previous month when the Solar Eclipse took place in your sector of intimacy and personal evolution. This is an important time for you right now, when you are feeling your way forward into a new stage, and when you might find that others who are with you on this journey are there for a reason. You have been engaged in a long process of attempting to get clear on what you are about. Like the biblical Jesus when he spoke to his mother you “must be about [your] father’s business” for which read the occupations appropriate to your Higher Self. Your mediations on the inner meaning of this concept have been offering up surprising and even revelatory results, and your communication with others around you reflects this sense of a new mandate. This is in fact an excellent time for you to be in conversation regarding your inner work, and expressing your ideas in writing or in spoken word form. You will be amazed at where this process will lead you, increasingly, over these next few months and years. With the Lunar Eclipse and Full Moon of Monday, June 4th, you are coming to a difficult time of creative tension, productive of much wisdom long-term. This involves partnership energy to a rather greater extent than you had counted upon, as you continue your process of figuring out how to better arrange your life. You are exploring your values and attempting to determine what really matters to you and how best to make your transition. A new way is opening before you and this is always both exciting and at the same time scary, especially since it could represent a departure from all that you have known and systematized. Your education in these matters is in some sense only just beginning. The First Quarter Moon of Monday, June11th, leads you into a mid-week period that emphasizes these factors and presents obstacles that tend to reverse your progress or else strengthen your determination, aided by the staying power of spiritual commitment. The New Moon of Tuesday, June 19th, provides you with fresh energy, and with the intention of being a strong stand for yourself, no matter what, as you navigate into new territory. You are possessed with a lively interest in higher mind activities and in the arc of your own personal evolution, which is an important contributing factor as you dig down deep into all your motivations with the idea of changing your mission statement moving forward. The last week of the month, punctuated by the First Quarter Moon of Tuesday evening, June 26th, might be even more intense than the first few as you negotiate the hurdles implicit in expanding your repertoire to the highest level. You are taking on an impassioned and resolute point of view that includes a spiritual component as its foundation, and evolving your goals accordingly and at times rather suddenly. You have nothing to lose but the chains of limited conception that are holding you back.
