This week is all about purging, releasing, and getting grounded in your own truth, Scorpio. Next week, on April 26th, we will experience an energizing New Moon in Taurus, helping us crystallize our goals and start fresh in areas of our lives that have felt stagnant. But before we can welcome this new energy, the week before a New Moon is about getting rid of what no longer serves you, completing projects you’ve put on the back burner, and living as authentically as possible. You will have to stay focused on your priorities and minimize distractions this week. Luckily, on Monday and Tuesday, the Moon in Capricorn provides you with the vision and determination to get the ball rolling. You won’t be in the mood to just chill — you’ll feel a large sense of urgency, and this will help you tackle goals that you’ve put off for so long.
And why exactly have you been putting off major action items, Scorpio? This is what you’ll be asking yourself Wednesday – Friday, during the Moon in Aquarius transit. You’ll be facing subconscious fears of failure or fears of success, and nipping them all in the bud. You’ll realize mid-week that the only person standing in your way is you. You have always had the key. You have always known the way. You have always been the path. This can be an enlightening week for you, Scorpio, because you will realize the people and situations that may have stifled your growth, and you’ll set yourself free from them. Even if you’ve been loyal to them for years, if you intuitively know that they aren’t serving your higher purpose, you’ll be ready to cut ties and thank them for the lessons learned.
Taurus Season begins on Wednesday 4/19, and you’ll love this energy because it’s highlighting your partnership sector, Scorpio. You won’t be too self-focused, but rather partnership-focused. This can help you at work when it comes to attracting allies who have your back and want to see you win. Just be careful that your stubbornness and inflexibility doesn’t get the best of you. Be open to other people’s ideas, even if they take you out of your comfort zone. Tame your ego and realize that you may be an expert in your field, but you always have room to learn more, and if you open yourself up to receiving such knowledge, the benefits will be astounding. Taurus Season is also going to make you want to be grounded in all aspects of your life. You’re craving serious relationships and friendships and you won’t have any time or energy for mind games. People are either in or out of your life. No in between.
On Thursday, Mercury, the Planet of Communication, makes a retrograde shift from Taurus back into Aries. These last two weeks of Mercury Retrograde will have some pretty fiery energy, Scorpio. You’ll have to make sure you’re not being impulsive or hot-headed. Yes, you may realize that you’re not seeing eye-to-eye with people, but make sure that your delivery is calm and balanced, because you may get easily worked up once Mercury re-enters Aries. You don’t have to make impulsive reactions or say something out of spite. You’ll really have to work on staying calm and not letting others trigger you as the week nears its end. Yoga, meditation, walks in the park, therapy, journaling, going out to eat with a trusted confidante, sleeping, taking a bubble bath — all of these are activities that will help mellow you out, even in the face of disagreements or misunderstandings.
Friday, your ruler Mars enters Gemini after many weeks in grounded Taurus. Bring on the adventures and wanderlust! You’ll be in the mood to switch up your social scene and step out of your usual routine. It’s a great time to look into summer travel plans or even think about moving to a new neighborhood. Do the research now, but wait until mid-May to actually make the move or take the trip if possible. Mercury will be retrograde until the 3rd of May, with a shadow period, so you won’t want to let your impulsiveness lead to you making huge purchases or signing contracts without triple checking them. But let yourself spread your wings socially and romantically. Mars in Gemini will make you feel youthful and free, and you’ll want to hold on to that energy and let it energize you.
Romantically, this is the first full week of Venus being direct after a long retrograde, but there’s still a post-shadow period until May so you’re still advised to tread carefully when it comes to making big romantic decisions. It’s best for you to be an observer of your relationships and not get too critical of people — this is a period of limbo where everyone isn’t necessarily what they seem, and not everyone really means that they say. Pluto will go retrograde on Thursday too, and since Pluto is Scorpio’s ruling planet, that means that you may feel more introverted as a lover and may not want to express what’s going on deep within. At the same time, Pluto’s retrograde can help you understand that when you push away those who love you, you’re really just causing more harm to yourself than to anyone else. Why fight love, Scorpio? You’ll experience this back and forth between craving intimacy and pushing it away throughout retrograde season, but with each passing day, hopefully love will conquer your fears.
Have a great week, Scorpio! Share how your week’s going in the comments below.
