With the Moon in Cancer for the first half of the weekend, Scorpio, you’ll be dreaming of the past and visualizing the future at the same time. Your sector of expansion is activated by the Moon and Venus in Cancer, allowing you to be more romantic, creative and affectionate. With this being your planetary ruler Mars’ first weekend in the sign of Leo, you may be more in the mood to be productive rather than to party, and it can feel confusing to you because Leo energy is usually all about celebration and glamor. The key is to find a way to make progress with your passions while also letting yourself enjoy the present moment. If you place too much pressure on yourself to do too much at once, especially during this post-eclipse period, then it’ll backfire and you’ll feel burnt out. Pace yourself, Scorpio. You’ve already won — you’re just working your way backwards.
Scorpio, your superpowers are roaring! Mars, our ruling planet, enters fiery Leo today at 9:34am EST, where it remains for the next 6 weeks. Mars comes alive when in Leo, and after the past six weeks of the homebody and deeply introspective vibes of Mars in Cancer, you’re feeling yourself come alive too. Your career and reputation sectors may be most activated by this transit, helping you have fun as you do what you love with boldness, leadership, and courage. Keep in mind that Mercury is still retrograde for another 11 days, making today an ideal time to tie up loose ends and send important emails that you’ve been meaning to send. Enter the weekend knowing you’ve committed to your evolution and ease. Take the step by step approach and trust that you’re the captain now, and you can set sail in whatever direction you choose. I love this for you!
Happy Solar Eclipse New Moon in Gemini, Scorpio! I need you to believe in your ability to let go of your limiting beliefs, and exceed your own expectations when it comes to what you can manifest in your life these next six months. Imagine yourself already “there”. These past two weeks have served as an eclipse portal, bringing you to this moment of self-actualization. But even though you’ll feel like a brand new person today and in the days and weeks to follow, you’ll also be aware that you didn’t get here on your own. Take time to acknowledge your ancestors and spirit guides who have sustained and led you when you thought you couldn’t keep going. Think of the people who cheered you on, even if they didn’t actually know you personally. Give thanks to those who invested in you, financially and spiritually, when you needed them most. Gratitude and awareness of your blessings is what will bring even more abundance and bliss into your life, Scorpio. There’s no need to do a major new moon ritual with this eclipse, because it has the power of 10 new moons combined (and since it’s a Gemini eclipse, we might as well double it, so 20 new moons combined!) All you’re here to do is focus on being the intention itself, and living a life you love, in whatever ways feel right to you in this present moment.
We are at the peak of the dark-of-the-moon period, Scorpio. Feelings such as jealousy, resentment, obsession, envy, frustration and loneliness may emerge at this time. You may also find yourself unexpectedly bursting into tears, laughter, or a combination of both. Let yourself feel whatever comes up, because this is an extremely potent and astrologically-charged period of time, and it’s normal to be feeling more sensitive, activated, and a bit nervous about what’s to come. Mars is also spending its final two days in Cancer, and you may be reflecting on how much your own sensitivity and intuition has deepend these past six weeks. This is an ideal day to journal your feelings, talk to your therapist, or get lost in a book or movie that makes you feel less alone. A new day is about to arrive.
