Scorpio (October 23rd – November 21st)
Healer. Therapist. Investigator.
Scorpio Sun Sign
The warning growl of a wolf protecting her den. The mechanism behind the magic. Black holes. The invisible breath that lingers between words. A supernova. Full moon. Witch magik. Death. Total transformation. This is Scorpio essence in action.
There’s no getting around it—the Scorpio star sign can be intense, but you’re more than prepared to handle the ride. As a Water sign, you’re already adept at picking up emotional energy, but your sign is also keenly observant, not only of your physical surroundings, but of metaphysical undercurrents. As a result, your sense of timing is pretty much impeccable. You know exactly when to strike on closing that deal or when to pull back, even if all the physical evidence around you says otherwise.
This highly-developed sense of intuition is due to your soul’s relentless urge to get to the truth. You aren’t into sugarcoating, mostly because you already know that playing nice doesn’t really serve anyone. You’d rather not mince words and waste time when you could be diving deep into the core of what makes someone tick. Unlike other signs, you aren’t afraid of what you’ll uncover when you start digging. You figure that even if you stumble upon something unbearable, at least you’ll know the truth before it can damage your sensitive soul.
Scorpio gets a bad rap for being associated with chaos.
But in reality, you shouldn’t be blamed for being a harbinger of anarchy. Ruled by aggressive Mars, and powerhouse Pluto, it’s no wonder that a certain level of discomfort can follow you. But in reality, you’re not there to mess up anything that’s aligned with someone’s highest good. Your job is to help them cut ties with anything that isn’t. You’re a natural healer, love, and even if you don’t go into a situation consciously prepared to listen as your BFF has a breakdown and breakthrough, don’t be surprised if these kinds of experiences follow you throughout your life.
There’s no doubt that you can transform ruins to blooms, but you’ll need to turn that special skillset inward to reach your highest potential. It’s essential that you become aware of your own faults, ticks, and potentially destructive behaviors before you’ll be able to help others. The saying goes that the best therapists are the ones who’ve exorcized their own demons before they’ve helped you battle your own, and the same goes for the Scorpio heart. Don’t be afraid to lead yourself through your own caterpillar-to-butterfly transformation so that you can do the same for others.
Scorpio Rising Sign
With Scorpio as your rising sign, there’s no stone unturned, no closet unexplored. It’s not that you’re nosy—quite the contrary. You only seek confirmation of what you already know deep within.
This inner knowing is so much a part of who you are that it seeps into your personality. To those around you, you come across as wise beyond your years, almost as if this isn’t your first go-around in human form. While you give off the vibe that you know something others don’t, you’re keenly observant. There’s nothing that gets by you, love. You take note of even the most inconsequential details and store them in your massive internal database for later use.
Even with your firm grasp on the human psyche, you can come across as guarded. It’s not that you don’t enjoy other people, it’s just that your watery nature tends to absorb everything. You feel deeply, and while that is one of your strengths, it can also breed fear. Allow yourself to be imperfect, let things go, and experience life instead of keeping everything under wraps.
Scorpio Moon Sign
As a Scorpio moon, “intensity” is your middle name—with one caveat: you aren’t into drama for drama’s sake. In fact, that will deflate you faster than a pinhole in a balloon. Your intensity is authentic in nature—you seek truth in all things.
You’re at your best when you go deep, and you’re unwilling to stop until you find the core of every experience, every person with which you come into contact. It’s not enough for you to have a wide circle of friends unless your time together includes soul-stirring conversation.
Allow yourself to honor and explore your intuition thorough nature, but remember that we aren’t all blessed with your ability to “see through the veil.” You ask a lot from your loved ones, and not all may possess the capability to see themselves as you do. Honor where they’re at and let it go.
Are you ready to embody your cosmic destiny?
If you’re blessed with a Scorpio sun, moon, or ascendant in your chart, it’s time to finally penetrate the surface of falsities, niceties, and inauthentic presence that are negatively affecting our planet. It’s time to be fearless in your pursuit of the Truth, even if that means walking through darkness in order to reach the light.
As women and woman-identifying people, we’ve come to a crossroads in our political and social history. It’s time for us to fully embody our highest potential and put to use our greatest spiritual gifts for the betterment of our world. It’s time for us dive deeper into our personal soul-traits so that we can leave a wider, more powerful imprint on this critical moment in time.
