This Thursday the 12th, Mars, one of Scorpio’s planetary rulers, ends its retrograde in the sign of Gemini. This is a major shift for us, because Mars has been retrograde since October 30, which means we may have had less momentum in key ventures and instead been in a major period of reflection. These 3 days before Mars shifts direct could make us feel even more introspective, because a part of us can tell that once Mars Retrograde ends, a new self will emerge, and a brand new life will begin. We’ve been integrating our shadows during the retrograde, and now that Jupiter’s in the fiery sign of Aries, activating our wellness sector, we’re being asked to step into the light and truly reveal our Scorpio magic. Use Monday and Tuesday to reflect on what blockages you may still be feeling regarding fully actualizing your potential. It’s okay to feel nervous about this new chapter, but don’t let yourself be paralyzed. Push through, Scorpio.
