The Moon’s in Leo for most of the weekend, Scorpio, and on Sunday morning it shifts into Virgo. Our sectors of reputation and social networks are activated by these lunations, encouraging us to get clear about what we feel most passionate about professionally, and what we seek in friendship. With Jupiter currently in Aries, the more we prioritize our passions, the luckier we become. But also keep in mind that Pluto, one of our planetary rulers, is now in Aquarius, and this transit squares off (causes astrological friction) with our Scorpio nature. The Leo Moon also creates friction with both Scorpio and Aquarius energy. This could lead to you second-guessing yourself or getting caught up in power struggles. Whenever you catch yourself getting distracted by unnecessary dramatics, take a deep breath and center yourself, Scorpio. Instead of letting external energy drain you, enter the month of April focusing on what amplifies your joy.

We’re two days away from the end of March, and with the Moon being void in the sign of Cancer most of the day, it’s best to mellow out and reflect on all the lessons you’ve learned ever since the month began. Pisces Season truly made Scorpios face their shadows and fears when it came to intimacy, and creativity, and now Aries Season is asking us to boss up and do what must be done. That means you have to be honest with yourself if you’ve been pouring too much energy into someone else, or even a professional project, rather than into your own self, Scorpio. Your sector of service and wellness is activated by the Sun, Mercury, Jupiter, and Chiron all in Aries right now, which means you may unconsciously be overextending yourself to keep the peace. Consider this a wake-up call: if you know deep down that there’s a lack of reciprocity in your friendships, relationships, or career, it’s up to you to stop giving so much. Direct your energy toward people and projects who want to pour into you as much as you pour into them.

Scorpio, as the week begins, Mars is spending its first full week in the sign of Cancer. Your emotional awareness is deeply heightened, as is your need for rest. Keep in mind that rest isn’t something you should feel the need to “earn”. It’s something you should integrate in your life as a norm, not as a reward. Now that Mars, our ruling planet, is in Cancer for the next six weeks, you’re being called to reflect on your relationship with rest. Even if working is necessary for your livelihood, chances are you’re working way too much, because you’re a sign of extremes. And even if you’re unemployed or taking a break from your job, your mind is most likely still racing with thoughts of work because Mercury, the Planet of Communication, is currently in Aries, activating our sector of service and routine. The best remedy for all of this overthinking and overdoing is to pause and do nothing. Medidate. Breathe. Be still.

Mars, the planet of action, leaves Gemini at 7:45am EST on Saturday the 25th, and enters our fellow Water sign of Cancer. Mars was in Gemini since August 2022, and since Mars is one of Scorpio’s planetary rulers, we’re going to be quite tuned into this shift — we’ll feel less inquisitive regarding what’s going on in other people’s lives, and more drawn to our spiritual world. Mars in Cancer tends to be a nostalgic and somewhat moody transit, so this weekend’s vibes are best for staying lowkey and not letting anything pressure you. Hibernation may be the name of the game these next six weeks, but Jupiter’s presence in Aries until mid-May also gives you the impression that there’s more work to be done. Your mission is to create a sense of balance between the work you want to do, and the deep rest that you’d benefit from integrating as a norm in your life. Take it breath by breath.

Scorpios, we’re about to experience one of the most epic astrological transits of our lifetime — in fact, the last time this transit occurred was 1778 – 1798. Pluto, our planetary ruler, is entering the Air sign of Aquarius after a 14-year stay in Capricorn. As Scorpios, Aquarius energy tends to throw us out of our comfort zones, and that’s exactly what Pluto’s transit is here to do. We are being asked to release our attachments to familiarity and get curious about adopting new lifestyles, environments, relationships, and perspectives. This will initially be easier said than done, because both Scorpio and Aquarius are stubborn and fixed signs who tend to be resistant to change. But if you dare to trust the unknown, the unknown will befriend you and pleasantly surprise you beyond belief. “Leap and the net will appear.”

Welcome to the astrological new year, Scorpio! This year Aries Season starts a bit earlier than usual, with the Sun leaving Pisces and entering Aries at 5:24pm EST on Monday the 20th. Then at 1:23pm EST the 21st, the Aries New Moon strikes, kickstarting a six-month cycle of fresh starts in Scorpio’s sector of wellness, health, and service. This is the new beginning you’ve been ready for, Scorpio, and if you’ve felt a bit all over the place since 2023 began, you may find that this is the week where you really tap into the “new year” energy. If you’ve been wanting to start a new fitness routine, eat healthier foods, or be more mindful of the media, music, and conversations you consume, take time as the week begins to plant those seeds of intention and rebirth. Just make sure that you’re not trying to do it all at once, because our planetary ruler Mars is in its final degrees of Gemini, which could lead to us having way too much on our plate. Slow down to truly take in this process of radical transformation you’re flowing through.
