Yippee kiyay…your birthday season arrives on the 23rd! The Sun shines its light on you, crowning Scorpios the celestial favorites. The cosmos has an extra-special treat for you this year—sexy, motivated Mars zips into your sign on the 30th, its first visit here in two years. One area of your life that should improve a lot this month is your domestic situation–where you live, with whom, and your relationships with family members. More about that in the forecast.
Saturn and Jupiter finally go direct in Aquarius!
These powerhouse planets have both been retrograding for months in Aquarius, the part of your chart that deals with your residence and family members. If you live with a lover, or want to, that’s part of this house. So is starting a family or having more children. Dealing with an ex (if you share custody with them, or property) is also included.
Because of the retrogrades, domestic matters have probably been going all over the place. Saturn wants to bring long term success to whatever it touches, but it’s been weakened by the retrograde. Jupiter is all about optimism and abundance, but the gas giant hasn’t been able to help you as much.
Good news, Scorpio: Saturn resumes direct motion on the 10th, followed by Jupiter on the 18th! By the time October wraps up, you should feel that your home life is a lot more stable.
The full moon on the 20th is in Aries, which is your house of organization. October is a great month for tackling unsexy things like cleaning out closets, vacuuming up dust bunnies under the bed, and doing some redecorating.
When it comes to romance, things may be a bit uncertain this month. Neptune is still retrograde in your fifth house of amour. Uranus is spinning backward in your seventh house of commitment.
If a lover has been unreliable, or you’re unhappy in a relationship, you’ll be doing a lot of thinking this month. Single Scorpios also will be reconsidering what they want out of a future relationship. At the top of the month the Sun, Mercury and Mars are all clustered in Libra, the sign that governs your subconscious mind.
Oh, and Mercury is retrograde through the 18th. This will dredge up old memories, fear and issues. Libra is your house of closure and moving on, something to consider!
After all, once the Sun enters your sign on the 23rd, you are going to be very focused on your needs and big plans.
It’s all about ME!
Happy birthday, Scorpio. The Sun enters your sign on the 23rd, and it will shine its glorious light on what you’d like to manifest over the year ahead.
From the 12th til the day your birthday season officially opens, you’re going to do a lot of inner work. Sometimes people cringe when they hear “inner work” because it may bring up images of years-long sessions with a therapist, or sobbing uncontrollably into your pillow as you process all sorts of negative junk.
However, just the opposite is going to happen….this process is going to fast, easy and maybe even fun! Embrace it. The new moon on the 6th is in the house of closure and transition , and Pluto goes direct the same day in your self-expression zone.
By the time your birthday arrives, you should be feeling so light and unencumbered. It really is a nice, calming energy.
Then the Sun enters Scorpio—-and momentum builds.
Aries full moon 10/20
Got any health or fitness issues that need to be dealt with? The full moon on the 20th is a great time to take care of them. Aries is also your house of efficiency, so use the last two weeks of October to get caught up on things.« This Week’s Horoscope Today’s Horoscope »
