The Moon spends another day in your sign, Scorpio, and when you blend this energy with the final push of Saturn in Sag, you’re bound to be feeling a blend of optimism and uncertainty about what’s to come. That’s perfectly fine. In fact, it’s exactly what you’re meant to be feeling. This Sunday, there will be a New Moon in Sag — the final New Moon of 2017 — and it will give you the ultimate “aha” moment. Everything you’ve been working on this year is crystallizing, and a lot of it is happening underground. You’re currently like a seed about to suddenly sprout into a leaf. Use the energy of the Scorpio Moon to dream the day away. Get lost in the fantasy of who you’re becoming.
The Moon enters Scorpio this morning, where it will remain for the next 2.5 days. When you combine the energy of the Moon, Mars, and Jupiter all in Scorpio, you’ll find yourself feeling huge surges of emotion and passion. Find creative and physical outlets for all of this energy that is bubbling to the surface — especially since it’s currently Sagittarius Season. You’re in a period of deep personal liberation, and the Moon in Scorpio will allow you to delve deeply into your own soul and fully own every aspect of it, both the light and the dark. You’re realizing the integration between it all. There’s no point tearing yourself apart or analyzing everything you’re doing. Simply be.
It’s been an interesting Mercury Retrograde so far, with the Universe testing your patience and ability to release the need to control every little thing. And today, Jupiter in Scorpio makes a rare alignment to the asteroid Vesta, which is also in Scorpio. This alignment hasn’t occurred in 5 years, and won’t take place again until 2023. Find a way to let your imagination run wild today, but do so in a way that comes naturally and also allows you to feel understood. The Moon is in Libra, and the Sun, Mercury, Venus and Saturn are all in fiery Sagittarius, meaning that even if you try to isolate yourself, people will want to be around you and they’ll find your energy magnetic. Find a balance between connecting with people who raise your vibration, and spending time alone, absorbing the massive change in consciousness you’ve been experiencing.
It’s all coming together, Scorpio. Breathe and let go. This week will feel very purposeful. It’s the last full week of Saturn in Sag lighting up your security and finance sector. Saturn’s been activating that area of your life for the past 2.5 years, and you’ve learned deep lessons about knowing your worth, having a healthy relationship with money, and prioritizing your passions and happiness above all. Saturn in Sag has taught you to be more adventurous and risk-taking in life, but also to think long-term. This final week of Saturn in Sag is perfect for taking stock of all that you’ve experienced during this transit, and finding a way to celebrate your tremendous growth. Try not to be too stuck on what’s happening next, though. Understand that everything is aligning exactly as it’s meant to, even if there are parts of your journey that you don’t fully understand. Ride the wave and trust the process. What you focus on this week can change the course of your life forever.
The Moon in Virgo may make you a bit too self-critical today, Scorpio. You’ve been focusing on the perceived flaws in whatever recent project or endeavor you’ve been doing, and it’s distracting you from taking a look at the bigger picture. Even in your personal life, it’s important for you to stop thinking about what you “could’ve” said or done differently. Use everything that’s happening in your life as a learning experience, and as an experiment. Understand that perfection is an illusion, and all that matters is that you show up and bring your best to the table, then let go of expectations and self-doubt. Use the energy of Mars in Scorpio to overcome any personal insecurities and truly step into your power.
Mars, the Planet of Action, enters Scorpio today, where it remains until January 26. This is a powerful transit to be experiencing, especially during Mercury Retrograde. It will energize you and fill you with greater passion and drive. Mars in Scorpio also amps up your sex and romantic life by making you extra alluring, attractive and romantic. It’s a great time to treat yourself or have fun experimenting with your personal style. Having Mars in your sign for the end of 2017 and the beginning of 2018 puts you at an advantage over all the other zodiac signs, Scorpio. You have the power to achieve so much in these final 3 weeks of the year, you just have to stay in your lane, focus on your passions, and tune out whatever tries to get in your way. Take time today to really clarify what your intentions are for this magical time. Your time is now.
The Leo Moon harmonizes with Saturn in Sag and Mercury in Sag today. This is a great day to catch up with an old friend and find ways to re-energize your friendship or connection through adventurous means. Maybe you can start brainstorming a trip abroad, or a collaborative venture that takes you to new heights. Today’s stars indicate that it’s never too late to pick up where you left off when it comes to a dream or desire. There will never be a perfect moment, so if you’ve been spending most of your time getting mentally prepared, it’s time to switch your focus and take action. Send the email. Enroll in that course you’ve been thinking of. Open up to whomever you’ve felt intuitively drawn to. There’s lots of Fire Sign energy in the cosmos right now, meaning that it’ll be easier for you to just go for it rather than let over-analysis or perfectionism hold you back.
The Moon is in Leo and the Sun is in Sagittarius today, so the energy in the cosmos is fiery, flirtatious, and full of life. Since Saturn is nearing the end of its journey through our security and income sector, you’ll be feeling an urge to stay focused on adopting an abundance-mindset. Pay attention to the thoughts you have when you’re thinking about money. Take time to create mantras that are focused on wealth flowing into your life with ease and consistency. Take time to think back about the relationship you’ve had with money throughout the course of your life, and how that relationship can now evolve to best suit your current lifestyle. The key to being wealthy is to first feel wealthy within yourself, and that can be done by counting your blessings. Before asking for more, take stock of everything you already have, no matter how small. This shift in perspective will open the floodgates for your continued abundance.
Jupiter in Scorpio is a transit known for bringing what is hidden to light. But before it happens on an external level, it’s going to happen internally. That’s currently the stage you’re at right now, Scorpio. Hidden talents, desires, dreams and journeys are revealing themselves to you. You’re being asked to not only face them directly, but to no longer keep them in the shadows. Jupiter is all about expansion as well, so even if you feel like certain things are “unrealistic” or “improbable”, you should open yourself up to receiving them anyways. But the one thing to be aware of today is the union of Mercury Retrograde and Saturn in Sagittarius, which can make you want to expand all at once. First focus on an area of your life that’s most in need of growth, and take this journey step-by-step. Whatever bold actions you’ve been resisting are most likely the ones you should commit to doing.
Today, Chiron, an asteroid known as the “wounded healer”, ends its retrograde in the sign of Pisces. This takes place while the Moon is in Cancer. It’s going to be an emotionally cleansing day. If you find yourself feeling extra sensitive, it’s absolutely normal. Music may make you cry. Reading a certain quote in a book or hearing a phrase in a movie can bring you back in time and connect you to a person, place or thing that has a pull on you. The end of Chiron Retrograde represents a major accomplishment in your personal healing journey. You’ve been allowing yourself to feel whatever comes up, no matter how intense. You’ve been training yourself to face the feels, rather than run from them. And now, a breakthrough is about to happen in your personal life, especially since Jupiter, Neptune and the Moon all align today in the Water Signs of Scorpio, Pisces and Cancer. Any creative activity you do today will get a magical boost. Dive into self-expression as a way to release those deep emotions you tend keep buried within.
The days after a Full Moon are all about spreading as much regenerative energy around as you can. Since this Full Moon took place in the airy, social sign of Gemini, you’ll find that it’s easier to communicate with people today. But you won’t want to communicate with just anyone, especially since Mercury Retrograde just started, and Chiron, the asteroid that represents healing, is about to end its retrograde tomorrow. You’ll feel social for the first half of the day while the Moon’s still in Gemini, but later in the afternoon the Cancer Moon takes over and you may be overcome by waves of nostalgia. Get out your journal or dive into a creative activity if you find yourself needing an emotional outlet. And remember to not take yourself too seriously.
The Full Moon in Gemini takes place today, as does Mercury Retrograde in Sagittarius. For us Water Signs, this type of cosmic energy takes us out of our comfort zones by making people really want to know what’s on our mind. People are going to want to have heart-to-hearts with you. They want to get things off their chest and figure out what’s going on in that Scorpio soul of yours. But since Venus is no longer in Scorpio, these kinds of conversations will feel much more light-hearted and easier to navigate. Since Full Moon energy is about release, and Mercury Retrograde is about the past, you need to carefully look at this year and be honest about what you’re ready to let go of, so that you can soar peacefully from this point on.
