This is a consequential October month for you, Scorpio. Due to the Libra New Moon from the final week of September, you are engaged in a process of deep-diving inner work that will help you to align to your deepest values. You dreams are important now and can tell you truths that you will not find elsewhere, so that it could be helpful for you to keep a journal relating to these or regarding the personal transformation in which you are currently engaged. You are understanding where you are coming from in the more profound levels of your psyche. Mercury in retrograde has given you the impetus to seek a new basis for moving forward from your greatest authenticity, so that this is becomes the goal both during October and for the end of the year. Partnership in your life represents another key area. The First Quarter Moon of October 2nd is the timing for assessing, through a process of intuition, newly received revelations from deep inside, while the New Moon in your sign on October 25th will be another significant juncture. Your ruler, Mars, retrogrades on the 30th, and will remain in Gemini for the next several months, corresponding to your sector of intimacy and personal transformation.

The New Moon in Libra from September 25th signaled the beginning of a new lunation cycle in the part of your chart that relates to your inner life and the more subtle emotions which are only accessible through contemplation. Dream imagination and inner work are emphasized over the subsequent thirty days, covering the first three weeks of October. You may need more time alone than usual to think about your options and what you truly want. It might also feel harder to know what that means as the changes taking place within you could be barely perceptible or even contradictory. This is therefore an excellent month to step away from the busyness of your life and create space for clarity and answers to emerge. You could feel pressured to meet all of your obligations at work and in your domestic life and it may be hard to actually take the time you need to slow down and assess the reality of your situation. Your inner life might be unusually rich and your attention could be turned inward or on your most intimate partnerships. Your need for peace and tranquility could be challenged by your desire to get things done and you may need to strike a balance between active and passive modes of being; otherwise you could end up acting without thinking or overthinking things without taking action.
The Aries Full Moon takes place on the 9th in your sector of health and day-to-day routine. This significant juncture might highlight any recent progress you have been making related to implementing better habits. This would be an excellent time to take stock of where you are at with your physical goals. The Full Moon might shine a light on adjustments that could be made for you to have greater vitality. It could be easier to see where you undermine your progress unconsciously. This Full Moon might also challenge you to get to the bottom of problems at home or in your personal life. Things that make you feel uneasy could continue to poke at you as long as you don’t address them consciously. This may be an excellent time to begin therapy or other modalities that could help access the more unconscious dimensions of yourself and shed light on patterns you have outgrown.
On the 19th and 20th, the Sun and Venus in Libra square Pluto in Capricorn, which may allow important realizations to emerge regarding key relationships in your life. These could be encouraging you to let go of something which has been bothering you for quite some time
Venus comes into exact conjunction with the Sun in Libra on the 22nd, having started on the 17th, which marks a period of purification and cleansing for Venusian matters like love, beauty, relationship, values and money. For you, this conjunction between Venus and the Sun might bring a new awareness surrounding your ability to receive love and choose the right connections. In turn, this could allow you to attract more of what you truly desire at this time.
The Sun and Venus enter your sign together on the 23rd which may signal the beginning of a much more dynamic period for you, presaging the New Moon in your sign two days further on.
On the 25th, a partial Solar Eclipse and New Moon in your sign continues to emphasize what you truly want and require in your relationships, beginning with yourself. The Sun and Moon in close conjunction with Venus signals a fresh start for relationships and, as well, your own self-concept. The transformative effects of powerfully placed Pluto still apply. You might be in the process of letting go of a lot of things – whether physical or emotional – so that this fall season calls you to surrender to the experience in order to transform.
On the 30th, Mars, your ruler, turns retrograde in Gemini which is the sector of your chart that relates to intimacy and personal evolution. These factors will therefore be a focal point of your energy and also the subject of internal meditations for many weeks. Mars will be moving backward through the sign of the twins until mid-January, and will not leave Gemini until late March, signaling a months-long exploration of what intimacy means for you and how it allows you to connect with yourself at deep levels.
Whatever is brewing at the beginning of October will truly start to emerge by the final week of the month. The more flexible you remain with the changes that need to happen at this time, the more rewarding this time period will be.
