Dear Scorpios, in honor of retrograde and eclipse season, I’m taking a break from offering daily scopes. I’m resting, regenerating, and re-imagining. That’s what retrograde and eclipse season is all about, and as an astrologer, it’s important that I practice what I preach. I’ll still share weekly/monthly scopes with you during this break. Subscribe to my email newsletter (scorpiomystique.com/newsletter) to know when daily scopes will be back. You can also order my book, Signs & Skymates, as well as my digital products via my site to deepen your astro knowledge. Remember: you are your own astrologer. I’m here as a guide, but the answers have always existed within you. Thanks for the love and support.

Happy Solar Eclipse in Aries, Scorpio! On Thursday the 20th at 12:12am EST, the Solar Eclipse New Moon takes place at 29 degrees Aries. Then the Sun enters Taurus four hours later at 4:13am EST, and remains there for the next four weeks. This Aries-Taurus energy activates Scorpio’s sector of wellness and relationships, and these are two themes that we’ll give more attention to these next six months (solar eclipses open up a six-month chapter of complete renewal in our lives). You want to feel better in your body, and in your mind, and this means making some changes to your health routine and overall lifestyle, such as getting more sleep, hydrating more frequently, and being more discerning of what you consume (as well as the vibes you emit). As you prioritize your well-being, the quality of your relationships improve too. Affirm with me: by Libra Season 2023, we’ll be in the best physical, mental, and spiritual shape we’ve been in so far this decade, and our relationships will feel healthy, expansive, and abundant. And so it is!
With the Sun in Aries and the Moon in Pisces as the week begins, we’re at the peak of the dark-of-the-moon period. This is a period of time when unprocessed or hidden feelings come up to the surface and ask to be acknowledged. What is it that you need to admit to yourself, or others, in order to step into the next level of your ascension, Scorpio? You’ll be in a more private and introspective mood Monday through Wednesday, so keep your schedule light and purify your environment. The pre-eclipse energy is strong right now. Remember to breathe.
The Moon’s in Aquarius for most of the weekend, and since Pluto, one of our planetary rulers, is also in Aquarius right now, you’ll be feeling more emotionally detached and… chill. Even if there’s chaos or misunderstandings occurring as we approach Mercury Retrograde (which begins next week on the 21st, one day after the Solar Eclipse in Aries), your ability to be like Pluto and vibe out from a safe distance will be your saving grace. This is a good time to organize your affairs at home and plot for the future in your Scorpio lair.
The Moon’s entered Capricorn for the next two days, and Venus, the Planet of Love, is now in Gemini for four weeks. Scorpio, your attention is on your communication patterns, and your intimate connections. The Capricorn Moon is encouraging you to take your needs and instincts more seriously, especially if you’ve been thinking about pursuing a certain path or changing your course of action. As we approach Mercury Retrograde, you’re likely reflecting on what worked and didn’t work in past relationships — the platonic, romantic, professional, and familial ones. Venus in Gemini serves as a contrast to the Capricorn Moon energy — it wants you to infuse a spirit of light-hearted humor to your reflections. View yourself as an omniscient narrator who understands that past mix-ups can lead to future redirections. Allow yourself to change your mind about what you thought you wanted.
The Moon’s in the expansive sign of Sagittarius as the week begins, and on Tuesday it shifts into Capricorn. Our sectors of money and communication are activated on Monday and Tuesday, and with Aries Season still going strong, it’s a great time to get our affairs in order, boldly and confidently. Scorpio, if you were a benevolent billionaire, what would you do with your wealth? What changes would you make in our world? With our ruler Pluto now in the revolutionary and forward-thinking sign of Aquarius, we’re being asked to dream and strategize in out-of-the-box ways. We have the power to shift our relationship with money so that it not only benefits us, but everyone around us. Use the energy of Pluto in Aquarius to envision radical ways to improve your own life, as well as the lives of your fellow skymates.
