Scorpio (Oct 23 - Nov 21)
Scorpio: Oh, what drama last month, what darkness, and momentous occurrences—the Eclipses of last month, especially the Total Lunar Eclipse, near and visible in New York, will have long-term effects, at least into the summer, with the Total Lunar Eclipse laying groundwork that may be in place for years. This one was harsh, but definite in the breaking of new ground, and affecting fixed signs most of all, of which Scorpio is one. But new information and new happenings shall occur over the detritus in place by last month’s breaking Eclipses, like fresh grass over a scorched earth. The New Moon to come on February 4th will be at 15 degrees Aquarius, thus most of all affecting those Scorpios with a rising degree near that point or born on or near November 8th. This New Moon is restorative, gentle, aligned with Mercury, and caught between the positive, reinforcing beams of Mars and Jupiter, both right now in the signs of their rulership, Aries and Sagittarius, especially. The New Moon crests in your house of deepest self, your home, your family, but who you really are at the core. Jupiter brings financial help and a feeling of expansion and health in your body and Mars brings of lot of energy and activity from your house of routines. You should find early February necessary to your development, with plenty of enriching moments, with opportunity to feel sound in yourself, beautiful in your aloneness, and thus in all situations in life. You won’t feel in any sense inwardly still, but the nervous, exciting energy of change, transformation, and the silent beauty of becoming is yours, yours to harness. Mars will align with Uranus mid-month in this house of work, but veering towards your house of relationship, and indeed perhaps crossing that line if you have a rising degree in early Scorpio. This indeed could be a time of new partnership, bringing a shift in your relationships. Uranus will be fussing up and revitalizing how you relate to others, and what a partnership is for you for years and years, and this period in your life, the intensity and unsteadiness and excitement of it will never again be matched, for Uranus’ transits are so long and slow. Mars puts in place a feral sexuality, as it crosses your Descendant, and a Scorpio cannot help but feel it. The unbridled, high-energy pair will make a positive connection to the Full Moon at 0 degrees Virgo between your tenth and eleventh houses on February 19th. Around this time you may hear news about your career or make clear advancement here that you have long worked for. You may start to makes new ties, or reinforce the connections you have with people you know, because of good work you’ve done around this time. End of the month Venus will be moving past Saturn, then Pluto, in a house which has to do with your subjective mind, and you may feel very inward, quiet, and deeply emotional. If you’re attached get close to your partner, take a short trip, and if you’re not attached, do so alone or with a close friend. Venus is never so receptive, sober-minded, and deeply-loving as when she is pressing up against Saturn, and then Pluto will turn these feelings in to the most sublime expression by month’s end. If you sing, or write, take advantage of the depths of your expression now—you’ll have some rare grace.
