Welcome to Scorpio season, the season of the Witch, the Shaman, and the Phoenix! On Friday, October 22nd at 9:51 p.m. Pacific Time, the Sun will enter the deep waters of Scorpio. During this season, the collective energy will be focusing on themes of deep emotions, intuition, and healing.
It’s no coincidence that Halloween, Day of the Dead, and Samhain happen during this time. It is now when the veil gets thin, allowing us to connect with the other side—with what we feel but can’t see.
Equipped with a powerful sixth sense and night vision, Scorpio is a sign that sees below the surface and travels to the depths of the subconscious mind. As an archetype, mysterious Scorpio is one of the most misunderstood signs. Ruled by the most intense planets, Mars and Pluto, Scorpio brings a bold and no-nonsense energy to the table.
In traditional astrology, Scorpio is ruled by Mars, which gives this sign its calculating, passionate, and go-getter style. This is the epitome of raw ambition, and regardless of which zodiac sign we are, we will all feel a deep need to follow our desires. In modern astrology, Scorpio is ruled by Pluto, the Planet of Transformation, gifting this water sign its magnetic powers of attraction and seduction.
For the next four weeks, we will go on a journey that is meant to transform us at a soul level. We will be challenged to dive into our deepest desires and bring them to the surface so we can alchemize them into a new reality. And while this is true about every Scorpio season, this year, Scorpio season arrives more powerfully than ever before!
It’s been a year of change for many of us, and now, we get to deepen the transformation we have been going through. Uranus, the Planet of Freedom, has been liberating us from the stale energy and what is no longer aligned with our sense of identity. We’ve been given the opportunity to make life decisions that are truly aligned with our unique essence. (This is especially true if you have planets in the Fixed Signs of Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, and Aquarius.)
Uranus is an electrifying planet, and its energy will be strongly felt by everyone as soon the month of November arrives. Expect surprises, restlessness, and a need to rebel against the norm. On the positive side, Uranus brings flashes of insight, creativity, and excitement. And the more we are open to them, the more we can move from the old, into the new. Uranus is the ultimate catalyst, so be open to its genius this Scorpio season!
