The final Mercury Retrograde of the year, and the decade, begins today in our zodiac sign. The human you are today is radically different than who you’ll be three weeks from now, on November 20, when Mercury goes direct again. The shifts will occur on a gradual and subconscious level, so you may not immediately notice the inner transformation you’re undergoing. Your emotions and sensitivity are amplified during Mercury Retrograde, as is your creativity and intensity. This is the time to throw yourself into a passion project, especially one you’ve been meaning to review, re-do, or complete. Work diligently behind the scenes to make your future self proud. These next 3 weeks your patience will be tested, but your growth will be unbelievable. Trust your instincts and make decisions that support your evolution.
Tap into your most authentic self and release your insecurities, Scorpio. The Moon is in our sign, helping us see what’s necessary for our awakening. If you’ve been in denial about certain relationship or behavioral patterns you tend to fall into, today will provide a wake-up call that will help you make necessary adjustments in your life. If you want to feel more abundant, you have to make choices that align with that desire. You have to remove yourself from scarcity-based mindsets that keep you stuck in the same cycles of skepticism, self-doubt or self-hate. Mercury retrograde starts tomorrow and it will be profoundly healing for you, dear Phoenix. So take care of yourself on the eve of this life-changing transit.
With two days until Mercury Retrograde, it’s time to slow down, reflect on some of the challenges or repeating patterns that are manifesting in your life, and let go of your need to know or control your life. Yes, that last part may seem daunting or even impossible, but Mercury Retrograde in Scorpio is here to teach you how much is not within your control. Getting too stuck on what you “should’ve / could’ve / would’ve” done will only leave you in a state of nostalgia and agony. That was then. This is now. Who are you now? Who are you becoming, and what’s been standing in the way of your evolution? This is a powerful day to listen to your inner self and release anxieties that may emerge by reminding yourself to take things breath by breath.
The day after a New Moon is best for taking steps towards manifesting the intentions you have started to set. So if, for example, you hope to have a creative project completed in the next six months, today would be a good time to devote 30 minutes to an hour to doing so. The key is to not view this as a boring chore or a drain, but rather as something fun and exciting that you’re doing to make yourself happy and fulfilled. Since Mars, our ruling planet of Action, is in Libra, you’ll feel creative, optimistic and flirtatious, allowing you to charm your way into people’s lives, hearts and beds if you so choose. This post New Moon world is magical AF. You’re the magician, Scorpio. So commit to your own powers and create whatever you’re ready to experience with that wondrous wand of yours.
The Scorpio New Moon takes place at 11:40pm EST tonight, helping us usher in new energy as our season picks up speed. Take time to set New Moon intentions tonight, and don’t play it safe while doing so. Get clear about where you see yourself six months from now, during the corresponding Scorpio Full Moon. How joyful do you feel? How alive do you feel? How wealthy do you feel? What does joy, liveliness and wealth look like to you , specifically? This is a powerful time to embrace the new being you are becoming, while lovingly letting of everything you know longer are. Outdated relationships, friendships, clothes, makeup, thought patterns, habits and belief systems must all go. This Scorpio New Moon is about to catapult you to unforeseen heights these next 6 months, which means it’s time to let go of the heaviness. Breathe, Scorpio, and begin again.
We are at the peak of the dark of the moon period, which means you may be feeling more sensitive and self-aware than usual, Scorpio. Take as much time as you need to process whatever feels come up right now, especially the confusing or contradicting ones. With Mars, the Planet of Action, still in Libra, you may find yourself going back and forth when it comes to a romantic or creative decision. Should you stay or should you go? Should you take the leap or should you wait? Mercury retrograde is also approaching, making it a bit more challenging to decipher what’s real from what’s fiction. This isn’t the day to try to rush into anything new. Embrace your journey and accept life’s unknowns, while trusting that you’re on the path meant for you. Tomorrow night’s Scorpio New Moon will provide you with several “aha” moments that affirm how much your patience has paid off.
The Moon shifts into airy Libra this afternoon, placing love and harmony at the forefront of your mind. You recently have been paying more attention to the whispers of your heart, and this has led to you making the types of decisions that protect your energy while also helping you attract more of what you want. But since we’re now in the dark of the moon period for the next two days, it’s time to get clear about what you don’t want. Clear out the old and reject what no longer resonates with your consciousness. This is an intense period of purging, and you’re about to feel so much lighter once you commit to your rebirth.
The Moon is now in Virgo, making the second day of Scorpio Season full of practical, grounding energy. We are approaching the Scorpio New Moon taking place this Sunday, but the days before a New Moon make us realize that we have unfinished business to attend to before embarking on our fresh start. Be honest with yourself about any important emails, phone calls, or projects you’ve been putting off because you’re afraid of what would happen if you actually saw them through. Now that the Sun is in your sign, you have a greater ability to attract what you desire, and more. Now is the time to complete what you’ve been meaning to do. Take things step by step and don’t doubt your magic — lean into it like never before and let your powers astound you.
This year, the Sun shifts out of Libra at 1:20pm EST, and enters the profound waters of Scorpio, where it will remain until November 22. It’s officially Scorpio Season! It’s always been our season, but when the Sun is in our sign our energy is amplified, and our powers of alchemy and transformation manifest. This season will be a trip because in 8 days, Mercury, the Planet of Transformation, goes retrograde in our zodiac sign until November 20. That means you’re going to get to know yourself even more profoundly. Everyone around you will be intrigued by your aura even more intensely. Everything about you will become more magnetic and stimulating. There will be moments of solitude, and moments of ecstasy. You are coming alive like never before, but that means you may have to face spiritual deaths like never before too. You were born for this, Scorpio. You were born to navigate the depths and rise, rise, rise. It’s your season. Your story. Your ascension.
It’s the day before Scorpio Season. The Moon’s in Leo. Take care of yourself. That’s the horoscope. Forreal, Scorpio. As you continue to ascend, you have to be more firm when it comes to time commitments and what you prioritize in your life. It’s essential for you to prioritize yourself, and this is something you should practice until it becomes a habit. This final day of Libra Season is teaching you to chill and trust the process, even if you have a hundred unanswered questions or you feel uncertain about your next step. With Mercury and Venus currently in Scorpio, and the Sun about to enter our sign too, the path will become quite evident. You don’t even have to look for it. You just have to feel it. Spend time today feeling yourself and your passionate sensations, in whatever way feels right to you.
The Moon shifts into fiery Leo after an intensely emotional past few days in Cancer. You’ll start off the week feeling bolder, more inspired and creative than usual. Direct all this passionate energy into projects you’ve been meaning to complete this month. There are still 10 days left and you may blow yourself away by what you’re able to get done before the final Mercury Retrograde of the decade begins on the 31st. The key is to find a way to get yourself in the flow, and remain there. Whether that means starting your day with a workout, listening to your favorite playlist, or rewarding every milestone with a make-out sesh or text to bae, only you know what motivates you, so make it happen. Scorpio Season starts in 2 days. View these final days of Libra Season as the final stretch of our pregame season. Work hard, play hard.
Today a grand trine takes place in Water Signs. The Moon in Cancer harmonizes with Venus and Mercury in Scorpio, as well as Neptune in Pisces. Love and intimacy will be on your mind. You may be feeling more horny and stimulated than usual. You’ll also be feeling romantic and nostalgic. If you’re already boo’d up, this is a great day for a heart to heart, followed by sensual love-making. For single Scorpios or those in situationships, you may end up daydreaming of the one that got away, or the one you wish had the courage to stay. You may reflect on moments you ran away from connections just as they were getting to the next level — the very level you once aspired to reach. There’s no need to beat yourself up about the way life turned out, because life is constantly in motion, full of twists and turns. Trust the feelings that emerge and be curious about where they’re taking you. Just when you think you’re not meant for love, love will show you how much it’s meant for you.
