Showcase your authenticity
Friends, lovers, connections support who you are
Attract with ease
Mix and mingle. Meet cute and greet. Clicks and connects. November says – don’t stay home, Scorpio.
Just understand however that in the lead up to your birthday next month, you are now in a peak energy period. You’re in a mood to tie up loose ends, take action and tackle anything you’ve been putting off when your ancient ruler Mars moves into your 12th from the 15th. You’ll be very clear from this point onwards what needs to be said and done. Especially as Mercury also in your 12th, begins retroshadow from the 7th and turns full retroactive from the 27th. This allows you to go back over anything left unfinished or else, have that conversation you’ve put off for far too long.
Previews of what the year ahead could hold for you appear this month but by its end, prepare for a slowdown until the Sun arrives in your sign next month. So, think potential and then a wait before it finally blossoms in its full form. This especially applies to that love interest or a project or plan. So, think fast forward and then spinning your wheels until you new cycle when you shift back into high gear again.
You have two house lit up this month. Your 11th of friends, networks, communities and your future. And your 5th of lovers, children, pleasure and good times. You can see how these two are opposites but also aligned at the same time. This is your time to immerse yourself and join in, but also to be noticed for who you are. To stand out and shine. And to attract with effortless ease when you do.
Your social life is in focus from the 3rd. Ancient ruler Mars forms part of a Mystic Rectangle in here. A super-charged aspect which looks like the back of an envelope when we see it in a chart. Knock, knock, ding dong, ping ping. Answer the door or the call to action. Let opportunity in. Don’t procrastinate or worse – pretend you’re not home! The last Mystic Rectangle appeared back in July. What happened back then?
So, think message in a bottle, email, snail mail, news, texts, that WhatsApp group, answers, announcements, invitations or door knocks. There’s an offer, acceptance or something opens up for us under these aspects which are a mix of trines, sextiles and oppositions. They are free-flowing but at the same time we have to make some kind of effort or stretch ourselves. Or we have already done that and now comes our result. Or we now make that extra effort to make it real.
Both your rulers ancient and modern are caught up in this axis which is what makes it especially powerful for you. As well as Mars in your house of friends and future pathways we have modern day ruler Pluto in your 3rd – the house of news and communication. Indicating that no matter the source this could be a game-changer. Neptune in your 5th brings a touch of magic and dreamy intent while the Moon in your 9th whispers emotional freedom.
The new Moon in your 11th appears just days after this event. Casting a pristine, focused light towards a new path and you being part of a fresh group or network. This is one of the most important new Moons of your future for the year as it sets the tone for your social life for the upcoming 12 months. So, from now up until the full Moon in your 5th on the 20th, please make an extra effort to connect or circulate.
Venus in your sign from the 10th tells you its time for a little (or a lot!) of self-validation and love. Are you being too critical of yourself or even others? Venus’s arrival wants you to appreciate true beauty within and without and also stop judging – period. Venus in our 1st wants balance restored on some level. It also craves attention! By all means indulge yourself to showcase your unique va-va-voom but please don’t overspend doing this. Venus doesn’t care about how much it costs. Only how good it looks or makes you feel. But you do however!
Sometimes all we have to do is pay more attention to ourselves and use what we already have in new ways. Venus now offers opportunities to Be Two for singles. This could just as easily be that new bff, activity partner, collaborator or work duet. Or even attract in that person who can offer a major assist towards that goal. But just like you’re no longer judging yourself – don’t judge a book by its cover either.
Getting in touch with your passion and creative fire is what the full Moon in your 5th promises on the 20th. This is the full Corn or Harvest Moon. The time of gathering as the year pivots and day and night becomes equal on the 22nd with the Sun’s entry into your 12th and the equinox. Or if you are in the Southern Hemisphere, this is spring and your time for planting.
On its way to Pisces and your 5th house, the waxing Moon passes both Saturn and Jupiter in your 4th.. This process will have you looking deep into your needs. Especially when it comes to being supported, nurtured and accepted for who you authentically are. Do you feel you have to bend yourself out of shape to people please? It doesn’t matter who – family members, partners, friends. Do you worry if you didn’t they would withdraw? As the Moon waxes you’ll see who or what provides you with the kind of love that allows you to be seen and heard and appreciated for who you are.
Take some time if you need with this process. Remember, the Moon spends approximately two days in a sign so allow this. Ensure you take some ‘me’ time even if its just an hour a day. By the time the full Moon bursts through, a new you should have emerged from this. Radiant, confident – owning it! And in your house of pleasure, attraction and attention. Who or what responds now should be aligned with who you are.
The more we learn about Vesta and see it in action, the more we realise that it governs far more than gender issues or home and hearth. Vesta is all about our identity. How we see ourselves and our right to define who we feel we are without having labels put on us. So yours may undergo an additional state of refinement as you take that full Moon process once step further, when Vesta arrives in your sign on the 21st. And what will be increasingly important to you now is surrounding yourself with the people who support that.
The Sun in your 12th brings the equinox, the balance between night and day no matter where we are. This month also sees key alignments between the planets in your 12th and the North Node in your 8th. Mercury (3rd), Mars (21st) and the Sun (26th). Effortless transcention of something icky that has kept you stuck is one potential outcome of the Grand Air trine also on the 26th. Decisions which see you taking control of your own life, no longer giving in to inner fear or self-doubt and letting go of anything that stops you from being boldly and authentically you can be made on these dates.
You may feel life begin to slow as we head towards October as Mercury enters Retro 2.0 in your 12th from the 27th. The usual Retro Rules apply, Scorpio. The past or people from your past could be in touch. Please test these connections for continued relevance and look to whether or not they support that authentic soul you’ve now worked for hard to claim. The Venus/Neptune trine on the 29th could show you one person or opportunity which truly does honour the real you and support those passions and desires. Let’s face it, Scorpio. Only that will do going forward now.
In a nutshell: It’s a month of attraction, of finding your people or what truly honours and supports that authentic you, Scorpio. You won’t be afraid to ditch anything that gets in the way of that. Accept only the real deal when it comes to love and support.
