Get ready to dig deep this week because the Sun will move out of fair and balanced Libra and dives into the emotional and often turbulent waters of Scorpio.
Scorpio is one of the most misunderstood signs of the zodiac. The sign of the scorpion governs the areas of life that many people would prefer not to discuss like personal desires, unconscious complexes, and oh, you guessed it, SEX. During Scorpio season, it’s a good idea to take a deep look at your desires, and whether or not you are receiving just a little of what you would like out of life? Are your sexual needs being met? Is self-sabotage an issue?
Scorpio season is the cyclical time of the year for you to work on becoming the best you, so that you can live your best life. However, facing the issues lurking deep within the swampy waters of Scorpio is never easy, but the benefits we get from coming to terms with our personal ghosts and demons are worth it.
This week the Full Moon occurs in the sign of Taurus. The Full Moon is the time of the month to begin to get rid of anything that hinders or drags us down based on the sign the Full Moon is in. Taurus rules money, so this is an ideal cycle to get your personal finances in order, analyze your investments, or create a plan to resolve lingering debt. Since Venus, the ruler of Taurus is retrograde, glaring problems could surface, but the good news is that they can effectively be resolved if you are willing to put forth the effort.
Now, let’s dig into this week….

Remember that digging deep stuff I mentioned earlier? Well, the cosmos has a sense of humor because the day before Scorpio season officially begins, Mercury forms a sextile to Pluto.
Mercury sextile Pluto is great energy for us to recognize the areas of our lives that need to be resolved or problems that have eluded us in the past will suddenly be solved. This aspect is all about digging up the truth and forces us to quit lying to ourselves about areas of our lives that may not be functioning properly, and although you may have stayed in denial on purpose, there will be an internal urge for you to break free. Also, you may be called upon to speak your truth to help someone else in need. Your wisdom and experience may be necessary to help them move to the next level.

The Sun moves into Scorpio and immediately slams head first into Uranus. Expect the unexpected out of your relationships because oppositions involving Uranus tend cause the unexpected to occur. However, the larger purpose of this aspect is to make you aware of things you may not normally consider. This can lead to enormous insight into yourself and others, and often this insight can happen suddenly, which is how Uranus likes to operate. A good old dash of shock and awe.
Sextiles provide us with opportunities, and perhaps more so with Venus being retrograde. On Wednesday, Venus forms a lovely sextile to dutiful Saturn and our relationship obligations in romantic and business partnerships will step on stage. Venus sextile Saturn is great for sorting through your relationships, taking care of your responsibilities in them, and coming to terms with your expectations. Venus sextile Saturn makes it easy for us to forge alliances and agreements by getting everything out in the open, so if you want to confront anything, this is the last opportunity to do so until April.
The Full Moon in Taurus occurs at 12:45 PM EST. Full Moons are great for doing magic and intention work, and with this Full Moon occurring in Taurus, financial magic is recommended.
Thursday, October 25, 2018
There are no planetary aspects on Thursday, but the Moon continues to move through earthy Taurus. If you have creative projects to work on, the day time hours will be perfect while the Moon sextiles Neptune. However, expect tensions to rise Thursday evening when the Moon tangles with aggressive Mars. Although you will need to remain proactive, standing in your personal power is necessary.

On Friday, the Sun forms a lovely conjunction to Venus. This aspect is great for socializing and enjoying yourself. So, get on your dancing shoes and go out and have some fun. If you are single, Sun conjunct Venus is great energy to meet someone new but remember to take it slowly until after the first of the year when Venus and Mercury are both direct and out of shadow.
This weekend, the Moon moves through mercurial Gemini, which may make it difficult to focus on one thing at a time, especially for those getting ready for Halloween or attending Halloween celebrations. The energy will be favorable for socializing, so problems will be minimal for most of you.
If you have business matters to attend to, there is a favorable aspect between the Sun and Saturn. This weekend is great for tying up loose ends, so if you have projects that need to be finished, this weekend is great energy to get this done.
See you next week….
