The Sun shifts into the sign of transformation and mystery; Scorpio, “Scorpio Season” begins on Oct 23, 2022, and runs through Nov 21, 2022.
The mysterious Scorpio energy is known for being darker and often misunderstood. Symbolically, Scorpio’s energy drives us to explore the depths of our soul during Scorpio Season. The Sun’s light exposes the truth, and all that has been hidden, repressed, secret, or ignored tends to come out. So if you’ve got any skeletons in your closet, clean it up now, or you might just get found out during this cycle.
The Sun in Scorpio is a time of emotional depth, intimacy, and transformation for all of us. Therefore, whatever is fake or false is usually brought out and exposed as we learn about others’ betrayals. Anything superficial doesn’t work during this time because we want real true connections, and there’s a deeper need to know people on a genuine and authentic level.
Scorpio is the detective of the Zodiac, so the Sun’s influence on the Scorpio energy can make you feel more suspicious and even a bit paranoid. We are generally more interested in getting to the bottom of things and uncovering what’s hidden, suppressed, or unknown.
During Scorpio Season, we see the unseen, and the unknown becomes known with our uncanny inner psychic and intuitive abilities. Our instincts are so strong that even if we don’t trust our intuition, the signs are more evident than usual. We enjoy the odd, taboo, and different in this energy, so anything plain or average is boring and simply unattractive.
During Libra season over the last month, we worked towards being fair and equal. Now during Scorpio Season, we learn to accept the fact that life isn’t fair and understand that pain and suffering are part of the process of being human. To evolve truly, we must transform ourselves, which means we must end something to create new beginnings.
This Scorpio energy can have us feeling sexy, mysterious, and provocative. But we tend to be secretive even though we’re passionate, strong-willed, and often intense. It’s a time of transformation and healing. But watch yourself! We can overshare a bit, as our thoughts and feelings need to be explored to understand ourselves better. So we can talk and talk and talk and talk! Yikes, it’s just often too much! Just make sure you’re not telling too much of your business and, know when to let other people express themselves, let go of that control.
The shadow side of this Scorpio energy brings about feelings of jealousy, paranoia, and obsessions. Watch out for cunning and manipulative people. Obsessions over certain issues or problems are strong, so we can dig deeper to learn and understand someone or something—but there can be an issue with not knowing when enough is enough or having the discipline to stop.
Scorpio energy is about survival and evolution, so it teaches us how to finish or end things in our lives. But often, we must endure things being broken down, and there’s destruction left, so we must rise from the ashes and start over! You may have fallen or feel like giving up, but you must push through. It’s a time of rebirth and resurrection.
Scorpio Season is for all Zodiac Signs; this energy helps us learn and evolve. It’s about regeneration and claiming our lives back as we start to rebuild after a wild and crazy year. It’s the best time to renew ourselves because Scorpio energy teaches us how to do what needs to be done, as it gives us extreme focus and stamina.
Hopefully, by the time we get to the end of November and into Sagittarius season, we’ll have some plans in place. May the Scorpio Sun energy that’s highlighted show you the way and help you get through your life’s journey. Stay Safe & Well ~Ruby
Sunday, Oct 31 Happy Halloween & Blessed Samhain – For All Zodiac Signs
On Sunday, make sure to get your work done early on so you can enjoy the festivities later on. Look out for shocks, surprises, and all kinds of trickery because the Moon aspects unpredictable Uranus later on today. And we want our emotional freedom and to express how we feel openly without being held back or restricted.
Remember it’s Scorpio Season (Sun in Scorpio) with Mars also in the sign of the Phoenix, and a Stellium (3 or more planets in the same sign) is forming, and mental Mercury soon will join them on Nov 5. This energy is all-knowing and Truth-telling! Have you noticed all the breaking stories involving the truth coming out or secrets being exposed about endings? It’s been wild to watch this influence unfold already. So if you have any secrets hiding in your closet, you may want to come clean before you get busted! Throughout November, this theme will continue, and it’s going to be interesting, and even shocking at times!
Sun squares Saturn, Venus sextiles Jupiter –
This can be a rather nice day for some folks, especially Sagittarius, Aries, and Aquarius Sun signs. Other signs are getting hit hard by blocks and restrictions. You may feel down and a little sad even, and cranky and irritable. Luckily, the icky feeling influence is nearly gone and won’t last much longer. So don’t let your emotions get the best of you and pull you into something you’ll regret later. Make sure and keep things real, but don’t lose your temper. Enjoy the good feeling energies when you can. Because it’s a toss up today!
Venus Connects to Juno in Sagittarius –
Venus, the Goddess of Love & Lust, and Juno, the Goddess of Marriage and Soul Mate relationships, make a perfect Halloween alignment. Our hearts open under this beautiful energy, and we have the opportunity to connect to a higher vibrational love. Together these two Goddesses may help you find a soul mate connection with someone new or old. And for all you couples out there, this is a great day to spend together having some spooky fun! The Zodiac Signs can enjoy this energy, but the Signs Libra, Gemini, Aquarius, and Sagittarius Sun signs may feel this energy more strongly. Be social and celebrate your ancestors this Halloween. It’s great energy to go on dates.
The day before Halloween, on October 30th, Mars creeps into the sign of Scorpio. People will be much more direct and to the point! In fact, after holding back for so long, there might be some outbursts. Even though some feelings might get hurt, it’s good for releasing all those pent-up feelings you might have held back while Mars was in Libra, as we’ve been held back from expressing ourselves authentically.
In Scorpio, the Mars influence can bring out our passions, but we can be obsessive in anything we do physically or sexually. Our focus shifts to getting what we want. With Mars in Scorpio, it’s easier to assert yourself in the actions you take, so you can feel more driven and focused on getting things done. During this period, you can be more strong-willed and resilient.
With the Sun and mental Mercury about to shift into Scorpio, we can get caught up in our feelings deeply. If you’re not focused on taking care of business, you may need more space to think and process the depths of your emotions. There are experiences and lessons to be learned during this time about claiming your own personal power. Since Mars is involved, it can be a strong cycle to transform something in your life around your physical well-being and sex life.
As I mentioned, you can be too focused on getting what you want and become obsessive. Once you’re on a mission, it may be difficult to stop and know when enough is enough. It may be more important to get to the bottom of a problem, especially if you’re already frustrated or angry, and you might be more interested in revenge, and that’s never a good idea, Karma folks! Just saying!
It’s a time when we are fascinated by all that’s hidden, kept secret, denied, or repressed. And it can be more mysterious and interesting to get caught up in other people’s experiences or drama to understand them better. The truth often comes out and is exposed, especially in the actions you take or if you’re provoked or irritated. Watch that temper and be mindful about how you communicate with others, or you can come off a bit too honest and hurt someone’s feelings. This Scorpio energy makes you more assertive and unapologetically direct! So try to think before you speak unless something needs to be said, then go for it!
It’s a good time for getting organized, as this energy can give you the drive to declutter your office and home. During the Mars in Scorpio cycle, you can do the necessary work and dig deeper emotionally, so then you can enjoy getting rid of anything old or outdated. It’s a great time to clean out those closets. We’re simply clearing the energies out to bring in something new, which can be healing. So throw out those old photo albums of your ex-lover or pictures of old friends you no longer hang with and get rid of anything that holds the energy from your past negative experiences. Throw it out! It’s time to let go and move forward.
You don’t want to avoid important issues because you can be attracted to chaos and crisis, which go hand in hand with Mars in Scorpio. Any problem areas in your life can be transformed, which is exciting psychologically and emotionally.
This influence can feel intense and extreme, but you’d rather go through it than be numb and feel nothing at all. Your normal everyday life and routines can be unsatisfying during this time. We need to feel alive, which means we often have to feel some sort of pain, and with Mars involved, that usually means psychically. But Scorpio energy teaches us to move through it as it’s an important part of our growth.
Rubys Astro Readings Scorpio Season Oct 23 – Nov 21
For All Zodiac Signs
The Sun shifts into the sign of transformation and mystery, Scorpio, and “Scorpio Season” begins on Oct 23, 2021, and runs through Nov 21, 2021.
The mysterious Scorpio energy is known for being darker and often misunderstood. Symbolically, Scorpio’s energy drives us to explore the depths of the soul. During Scorpio Season, the Sun’s light exposes the truth, and all that has been hidden, repressed, secret, or ignored tends to come out. So if you’ve got any skeletons in your closet, clean it up now, or you might just get found out during this cycle.
The Sun in Scorpio is a time of emotional depth, intimacy, and transformation for all of us. Therefore, whatever is fake or false is usually brought out and exposed, and we learn about others’ betrayals. Anything superficial doesn’t work during this time because we want the real deal, as there’s a deeper need to know that people are genuine and authentic.
Scorpio is the detective of the Zodiac, so the Sun’s influence while in Scorpio can have you feeling more suspicious and even a bit paranoid. We are generally more interested in getting to the bottom of things, so we often want to uncover what’s hidden, suppressed, or unknown. It’s a time when we see the unseen, and the unknown becomes known, with our uncanny psychic and intuitive abilities. Our instincts are so strong that even if we don’t trust our intuition, the signs are more evident than usual. We enjoy things and people that are odd, taboo, or different in this energy, so anything plain or average is boring and simply unattractive.
During Libra season over the last month, we worked towards being fair and equal. Scorpio Season is a time when we accept the fact that life isn’t fair and understand that pain and suffering are part of the process of being human. To evolve truly, we must transform ourselves, which means we must end something to begin something new.
Scorpio energy can have us feeling sexy, mysterious, and provocative. But we tend to be more secretive, as we feel more passionate, strong-willed, and often intense. This is a time of transformation and healing. But we can overshare our thoughts and feelings as we want to explore them to understand ourselves better.
The shadow side of Scorpio energy can have us feeling more jealous, paranoid, and obsessive, so often, people who are more cunning and manipulative are out and about. Obsessions over certain issues or problems are strong. We will dig deeper to learn and understand someone or something. So we may not know when enough is enough and have the discipline to stop.
During this cycle, mental Mercury shifts into the sign of Scorpio on Nov 5. Mercury rules over how we communicate and process our thoughts. So we will have a lot more Scorpio energy to contend with, and our focus will be even more on all things Scorpio. We can have laser-like focus and concentrate better, so make sure you know when to take a break.
Scorpio energy is about rising from the ashes of what’s ended and even destroyed. Often in our lifetime, we have to endure everything around us breaking down and being destroyed to start over once again. This is Scorpio energy! You may have fallen somehow or felt like giving up, but you must rise from the ashes. It’s a time of rebirth and resurrection as we meet specific challenges.
Scorpio Season is for all Zodiac Signs, and this energy helps us learn and evolve. It’s about regeneration and claiming our lives back as we start to rebuild after the wild and crazy year we’ve had. It’s the best time to renew ourselves because Scorpio energy teaches us how to do what needs to be done, as it gives us extreme focus and stamina.
Hopefully, by the time we get to December, we can have some plans in place since most of 2021 has been spent surviving, which is so exhausting. May the Scorpio energy highlighted by the Sun’s energy show you the way and help you get through your life’s journey.
The Sun shifted into the sign of transformation, and mystery, Scorpio. “Scorpio Season” begins Oct 22, 2020, and runs through Nov 21, 2020.

We are more interested in getting to the bottom of things, as we want to uncover what’s hidden, suppressed, or unknown! It’s a time when we see the unseen with our uncanny Psychic abilities. So we can pick up on the energies around us very quickly. Even if we don’t trust our intuition, the signs are more evident than usual during this time. We enjoy things and people that are odd, taboo, or different in this energy, so anything plain or average is boring.
During Libra season over the last month, we worked towards being fair and equal.

The shadow side of Scorpio energy can have us feeling more jealous, paranoid, obsessive, and manipulative. We can become obsessed over an issue or problem, and try to figure it out repeatedly, and get nowhere as we continue to dig deeper to learn or understand someone or something. So we may not know when enough is enough or when to quit!
Mental Mercury is also in the sign of Scorpio through Oct 27, due to Mercury’s Retrograde (backward) cycle. It travels back through the sign of Libra on Oct 27 through Nov 9, and then goes back into Scorpio from Nov 10 – 30. So we will have a lot more Scorpio energy to contend with!
This Scorpio energy is about rising from the ashes after something ends. We have fallen in some way or have had to give up, like the tales of the Phoenix! It’s a time of rebirth and resurrection, as we rise to specific challenges and above what has fallen around us! Scorpio Season affects all Zodiac Signs, as this energy is something we can learn from. It’s about regeneration and claiming our lives back, as we start to rebuild after the wild and crazy year we’ve had. It’s the best energy to renew ourselves under, because Scorpio energy teaches us how to do what needs to be done, as it gives us extreme focus and stamina. We can be more driven and motivated to take care of business.
By the time we get to the end of November, and the end of Scorpio Season, hopefully, we will have some plans in place, since most of 2020 will be spent taking life day by day, and just surviving which is so exhausting. May this Scorpio Season illuminated by the Sun’s energy show you the way, and help you get through.
Mercury goes Retrograde on Halloween October 31st, 2019 and runs through November 17, 2019.
Mercury is currently inthe sign of Scorpio, this is a deep, potent, psychological energy. Therefore we go into a more private introverted place that has us exploring the deeper parts of our minds and psyche, as we learn truths that come from the depths of our souls. What is considered to be taboo or secret comes out in the open. The truth comes out to be told! The sign of Scorpio, after all, is the sign of regeneration, as it teaches all of us that sometimes we must fall to pieces and let something end or die off to start over again. If we take this cycle to plan and strategize we can make things happen once it’s over! As we go back to revisit and revise our plans we can go much deeper than usual while in this cycle and uncover ways to improve our lives and ourselves.
Sometimes the Universe gives us a break even though it doesn’t always feel that way. One thing the Cosmos always does is create balance. So the energies get slowed down a bit so we can have the opportunity to catch up. Mercury in Retrograde (Rx for short) is that time out, it’s an opportunity to get caught up with life, and a time to unplug and take a long deep breath. It’s also a great time to take some time off from our responsibilities if at all possible, maybe taking a little vacay and focus on reworking anything that needs to be done, or finishing projects that were never done to completion, while Mercury rules over our minds and thoughts. When this fast-moving planet goes into Retrograde we start to perceive things in a very different and unique way.
Mercury in Rx like all Retrograde planets is happening for a reason, this isn’t some new Astrological fad! Planets have always gone into Retrograde cycles and will continue to. So every once in a while we get a chance to pause or stop and get some rest. This is the time to review your life and the paths you’re on. What this Mercury in Rx cycle does is help us to take a breathe, be still, relax, and review. The main thing to understand as this cycle takes hold that it’s a time to review your life and redo anything that needs to be done. It is time to research, re-think, re-visit, re-connect, and to get re-organized.
Mercury rules over our minds and how we process information, so this is a time to observe our lives from an outside perspective, which is truly a gift. From this space, we have the rare opportunity to see the contrast in our lives and what is working and what isn’t. The only problem is we live in a time of INFORMATION and after all, Mercury is the planet that delivers info, but during its Retrograde cycles, it wants us to simply UNPLUG and take a step back from our normal everyday routines and lives, and to not be online or on our phones, CAN YOU IMAGINE THAT! But if we were to stop using all of our electronic devices and take work off, and simply review our lives it would be a much better experience. The reality is only a few of you reading this are actually able to do this. So the challenge is in learning how to handle Mercury in Retrograde and still do our lives. Those of you who already pay attention to Mercury in Rx’s cycles understand just how annoying all the misunderstandings, electronic glitches, and snafus can be! So the bottom line is we should learn how to put our phones down from time to time and just simply do life, as this is a time of deep inner reflection.
What Not To Do during
Mercury in Retrograde:
Don’t start brand new projects
Do not get into arguments, avoid critical folks and tense people or situations.
Do Not Sign Contracts or New Agreements
Do Not take misunderstandings personal. Our Minds and Communication is foggy and cloudy.
What To do during
Mercury in Retrograde:
Redo, Rework, Review, Research, so basically go over things again and wrap up old business and projects.
Double Check the Facts and any info gathered.
Revisit what you need to, like your work.
Reconnect with the folks that matter if you’ve had issues or not.
Backup Computers and any data you want to keep saved, usually start this process two weeks before the actual Retro Cycle.
Reorganize your daily life routines.
Reflect and practice spiritual work.
Release what’s been holding you back or blocking you, let go of what is no longer working, especially in your intimate relationships.
There can be positive things that come from a Mercury in Retrograde cycle that perhaps didn’t cross your mind. Like throwing out old stuff you no longer need or use, and organizing your life. Stay focused on any past opportunities and reconsider them now, see if they’re still an option. Try not to allow any computer glitches or electronic snafus you might be experiencing to upset you too much.
Since it’s the Holiday Season, it’s important to keep a paper trail of whatever you purchase. Mercury is known as the “trickster” of the Zodiac, so it likes to play tricks that make us change our minds suddenly and this causes confusion.
So our focus should be on re-organizing and reflecting. We see the world a little differently during this time, and through these filters, we can have some very important inner revelations. It may not be as easy to communicate under this influence, so remember trying to rationalize everything at this time will just probably cause you more confusion. Logic is out and intuition is in! Mercury Rx periods can be times of heightened inner-awareness, so doing things like meditation, keeping a journal, reworking old plans, reviewing, or reconnecting to your past can be quite helpful. Mercury Rx is also a powerful time to study, particularly for returning to old studies and re-learning or refreshing knowledge around a subject that’s already been started.
This Mercury in Retrograde cycle can also help you think back to a part of your recent past, and reconnect you to an old dream or goal to follow through on once this cycle is over, but write it all down for now and plan ahead. Someone from your past might get a hold of you for a second chance or opportunity, but that doesn’t mean it’s meant to be, usually, it doesn’t work out for the long-run. But it’s nice to reconnect and perhaps sort out any unresolved issues you might have.
Because we are perceiving things differently, and Mercury and the Sun are both in the sign of Scorpio this time around, the truth tends to come out! Certain things that have been suppressed, hidden, secret or unknown suddenly are shown to us during this time. You just might notice or find some kind of detail you overlooked or didn’t catch before, which can be very helpful. This cycle can bring clarity and help you move past any restrictions or blocks standing in your way. Mercury begins retracing its steps in direct motion starting November 17, 2019.
The New Moon takes place in the Sign of Scorpio ironically enough this October, but these energies will be felt strongly starting Saturday the 26th through the 28th. The actual New Moon comes together on Sunday the 27th in the evening here in the US.
This New Moon energy is meeting up with some other planets making it very different and challenging energy to deal with. There can be situations that provoke anger, and lies or deceptions. Lovers and relationships, in general, can have issues with high ideals that have been set and explosive attitudes around those expectations. The Uranus opposition to the New Moon is not compatible with its energy and therefore, it contradicts the awesome New Moon energy! So it may not feel like an ordinary New Moon, which is usually much more peaceful hopeful for most.
Since the Sun and Moon are both in the sign of Scorpio during this New Moon, our desires run deep and our will is stronger than usual. Our lives are under a microscope that involve our very existence, so we can become obsessed with thoughts about life and death. Scorpio is the sign of Regeneration after all. Any issues that suddenly come up now can be viewed as a matter of “life or death”, which is extreme, but so are our thoughts and emotions, which can be fiercely intense at this time.
With the New Moon in Scorpio stirring up such intense emotions, all that has been hidden, buried, repressed, taboo, or kept secret is ready to be discovered. This energy is supercharged with intense psychological energy, so it can affect our psyche in a powerful way that can help transform us! But this is not usually a fun process. Being aware is, however, half the battle and can help you understand what you need to move forward. Don’t be in denial or lie to yourself, or you won’t get the lessons involved from this New Moon energy and can struggle and suffer.
When the New Moon is in the sign of Scorpio our emotional depth mixes with our equally strong willpower to survive and succeed, at whatever we put our time and energy into. This makes for a stronger source of psychological energy to draw from. The only issue is we can catch others off guard by expressing ourselves rather suddenly and unexpectedly in a strong manner, this can cause tensions with other people, and then they may not trust us enough to deal with the real problems at hand.
This New Moon has such a different vibe with the planet Uranus almost precisely in an opposition to it! So it can feel like a Full Moon, as anxiety levels run high. The emotional Scorpio intensity is strong and needs some sort of transformation, this can make us feel excited and restless as we have a strong need for independence that can fill us full of nervous energy. Something needs to shift or change in our world in order to calm back down, but we may not even know where to start.
All of the Signs of the Zodiac will be affected by this energy, but it can be especially strong for the “Fixed Signs” of the Zodiac which are as follows; Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, Aquarius, especially those born in the First decan of each sign, so the first week of each of these signs. And the “Cardinal Signs” as well so, Aries, Cancer, Libra, Capricorn especially those born in the Second decan of their sign, which is the second week of each of those signs.
The New Moon’s Effects
During this New Moon there can be unexpected events that challenge what we have come to trust and understand to be true. Tensions can grow high and there can be rash and strong reactions from others. This influence tends to bring up issues around our emotional security and love life. Some folks will notice the feelings they’ve been stuffing deep down suddenly coming out in a very exaggerated manner. We can suddenly feel a strong urge to express our emotions out loud about our relationships, and this energy can trigger us and we may start to obsess about why we are with our partners or lovers in the first place. This creates a fog over our situations and makes it that much more confusing, especially with Mercury just about to go Retrograde also in the sign of the Scorpio. There might be a case of mistaken expectations of our partners, and what we thought they could or would do. We must sit back and observe for now, and perhaps take some sort of mental notes, but it would be silly to take any actions at this time, until the New Moon energy has passed and we are more clear and less judgmental about what we are doing and seeing!
This energy is extremely sexual, and therefore many of you will feel a strong desire to express your sexuality, but that may become frustrating or a waste of time and energy in some way. Just remember to keep your cool as this energy can cause tension, anger, and crisis, which can lead to separations and even breakups in any kind of relationship.
It’s important to have patience and remain polite to keep the peace. Try to think before reacting, and work on being more compromising. This is the best way to avoid these tense energy from kicking up! Perhaps the battles are not over for now, but do you really want to wage War under these energies? Unless you feel done with the relationship, then go for it, otherwise take a step back and a deep breathe and learn more so about how to compromise. That is what it takes to maintain a healthy relationship, and perhaps that is what this energy is trying to teach us, to be patient with our partners.
Setting Intentions with the New Moon
It may almost seem kind of scary to “Set Intentions” with this particular New Moon, due to the unstable energy it’s bringing to us, being hooked into a strong opposition with the planet Uranus. However, Scorpio energy is some strong magic folks, it is an alchemist at its very core. This is the time to go deep and ask for some kind of blessing or miracle. Being saturated by so much Scorpio energy we have the power to transform any situation in our lives. Uranus is the spark that helps creates miracles, it’s lightning speed and energy can change anything fast! Astrologers enjoy precision and this New Moon will hit us right where it counts, so it can be very powerful energy to work with! Take advantage of this powerful energy and wield it in the direction towards what you most strongly desire. This won’t be a waste of time I assure you as Scorpio is the sign that started and defined what Desire truly is in the first place.

The Sun shifts into the mysterious sign of Scorpio on October 23rd and “Scorpio Season” officially begins. Every aspect of life can feel super-charged with intensity between now and November 22nd.
Happy Birthday to all my Sun Sign Scorpions out there! But this blog is for all the Signs, so read on to learn more.
The sign of Scorpio is notoriously known for being the darkest (symbolically speaking), mysterious, and deeply psychological sign in the Zodiac, as it explores the soul when it’s under the light of the Sun and truths, deceptions, and secrets are exposed.
Scorpio’s lessons are about depth, intimacy, and transformation. Anything fake or false will be shown for what it truly is while the Sun is in this sign, so if something or someone is superficial it simply won’t work for you at this time, only the real deal will do! This sign and its energy is the detective of the Zodiac, therefore we are more interested in getting to the bottom of our problems, as we work at uncovering what’s been hidden, suppressed, or unseen. We also can be quite obsessed with other people’s problems and can feel a strong urge to help those around us. Under this energy, you might actually enjoy all that is odd, taboo, or different in the world. Anything just plain or average may not be enough for us during this time.
During Libra Season, while the Sun was in Libra over the last month we worked at being fair and equal, as our attention was on our relationships and keeping things more balanced. But under this
Scorpio energy we accept the fact that life isn’t fair, and we are learning to understand that pain and suffering are actually part of the process of life. In order to truly evolve, we must transform ourselves and perhaps go some sort of major breakdown to end something and begin anew.
Scorpio energy is also quite sexy, mysterious, and provocative! So there’s going to be some interesting situations that spark up in our relationships while the Sun is in Scorpio. And the single folks out there may search for a strong love, committed, and long-term during this time. This Scorpio influence keeps us perhaps a little more reserved about how passionate we truly feel, but we can still be strong-willed and intense. This is a time of powerful emotions and some of you might feel rather emotional during its run. This energy can transform certain things in your life, of course, depending on what part of your personal Astrology Birth Chart the Sun is cruising through is what part of your life this energy will be the most evident.
The sign of Scorpio is often represented by the Scorpion, but also, the Mythical Bird, the “Phoenix” can represent this brave sign. The legend of the Phoenix is about how once were ready to go, die off, or end our chapter in this life, this magical bird flies up in the air and catches fire and turns to dust! But from that state, it comes back and resurrects itself back to being whole. Once it has risen back to life, it is ready to start over again. This legend teaches us that sometimes we have to fall apart, and let something end, or let a part ourselves die off to resurrect and come back to life, so we can tap into some kind of new energy and start something anew.
The shadow side of Scorpio energy is we can become more easily jealous, paranoid, obsessive, and manipulative. This energy can cause some of you to be more obsessive about an issue or problem, as we can be compulsive and won’t let things just happen naturally. This, of course, will get you nowhere and it might be more difficult to stop once you have started focusing on something.
Despite how scary or creepy this all might sound, Scorpio is part of the Zodiac Wheel for a reason and we all have a little or a lot of this sign in each of our Astrology Birth Charts. Scorpio energy also gives us incredible drive and strength, which in turn can help us get through difficult times. This sign knows how to survive the worst of situations and has extra reserved up energy to get through. Scorpio energy kicks ass and takes names once it is forced to die off like the Phoenix, so it can figure out whatever it needs to know to come back. So draw upon the Scorpio energy during this time to help you take on difficult tasks or situations in your life.
Curious Mercury and loving Venus are also in the sign of Scorpio at this time, which also runs through Scorpio Season. This means our souls, hearts, and minds are all being ruled by the Scorpio energy, therefore, some of you will be breaking your lives down to rise up once again, and perhaps resurrect yourselves in some way just like the Phoenix!
This can be amazing energy to work with if you want to finish something in your life, after all, Scorpio Season is a time of endings, hence why we choose to celebrate Halloween during this time, as Halloween originated from the Holiday the “Day of the Dead,” which is a time when we should be honoring those who have passed or crossed over, it’s a time to be in touch with our ancestors who lived here before us. With so much Scorpio energy this season going around the veils between this world and other realms are very thin, and we will have an extra spooky Halloween Season as our minds are very in sync with the afterlife and paranormal. Therefore many of you will be able to connect to loved ones who have crossed more easily than usual. And those spirits and energies that are still roaming on this earthly plane will be restless, so often that means more communicative as well. But remember they have to communicate differently with us.
This is also a time when the earth sheds itself, as the Fall into Winter months is the time the planet dies off so to speak, but we know next Spring it will resurrect itself and start all over again. Ask yourself what part of your life do you need to end? What are you shedding away? What part of your life needs to die off and perhaps be started all over? Are you being forced to look at certain parts of your life now, so you will end something? This can be any part of your life, an old worn-out behavior or attitude, a situation, or it could be with a person. Or perhaps it is something spiritual within yourself.
October 1st: Sweet Venus in Libra squares passionate Pluto in Capricorn and frustrations occur, especially at work and in our relationships. People can get to you in this energy, the little things can set you off! Remember to breathe! With Pluto involved, we can feel rage under this influence. And we want to have fun and play but this energy can demand that you take care of your obligations and this can keep you from enjoying yourself.
October 3rd: Pluto moves Direct from its Retrograde phase: It’s been Retrograde since April 24. This influence has been affecting so many of you more than you realize, so it will be interesting to see what happens once Pluto goes back to its normal pace. Over the last 5 months, we have been going through some deep transformation. Some of you were out on paths to learn new skills in life, some were put through tests and challenges to beat some bad habit or addiction! Now it’s time to show the world you will rise above all the pain and suffering. You can now show others just what you learned. And show off your accomplishments. This is a very powerful energy that can put you through some seriously touch challenges, but as Pluto slowly gets back to its normal pace we will see things lighten up a bit, it just can take through the end of 2019 for some of you.
October 3rd to November 1st:Mercury enters Scorpio, we tend to see through others and are better at reading between the lines, rather than accepting everything at face value. This is actually good energy to do research and purposeful work. We are more driven to get to the bottom of situations and solve the little mysteries in life. We can discover some interesting information under everyday circumstances, as we can work on projects to there completion. Our judgment is more strong and sound.
October 4th: Mars in Libra: Over the next six weeks, passionate willful Mars will be in Libra, this isn’t the best place for the sign of Libra. And we can feel a bit edgy! We can easily get worked up at one point and start freaking out because of our fear of leaving others behind. With Mars in Libra, a little honesty can bring folks closer together. Only stronger connections will survive this influence.
October 7: Sun squares Saturn: This aspect occurs twice a year. It allows us to rid of what isn’t working right in our lives, due to something being impractical. As we can get more clear about our ideas and plans. With the Sun Libra, our relationships are highlighted while Saturn in Capricorn shows us our ambitions. This placement can show you who is helping you and who is not on your side. Since this helps us focus on our long-term goals, we should take some time to make more informative smart decisions that will continue to help us.
October 8th through November 1st:Venus enters Scorpio This is a good time to find ways to bring more passion and depth to your relationships. But under this influence, we can get a little suspicious and even paranoid about our partners and around our finances. You may find yourself obsessing over other people and even wonder if someone’s giving out all your information or telling your business. No matter what happens we want strong authentic connections with those we love. If you are genuinely looking for a soul mate of some kind then get rid of the players and wannabes, and those that are not willing to commit. If you are looking for the real deal and then you could find love in the most unlikely places.
October 13: Sun sextiles Jupiter: These two bodies of energy together bring in amazing opportunities. There are people who are willing to help you now, it just means you have to take advantage of what they have to offer. With Jupiter still in Sagittarius our world opens up to the possibilities, so use this time to go after your goals.
October 13th: Full Moon: A Full moon in Aries occurs.
The brighter side to this Full Moon influence is its connection to happy-go-lucky Jupiter, as it can bring in success on a project or a goal you’ve already been working on. Good luck can suddenly strike, through old friends, or someone else you meet perhaps online can make a wish come true. Look for those who carry the light, so the people who are more positive and who hold you up when you fall. This can create a positive vibe that helps you make a path towards your goals as windows of opportunity open.
You may start to feel discontent with your normal routines and relationships. Things may just feel stale and worn out. Married or committed couples that haven’t been doing so well could have serious issues, but that doesn’t mean you’ll leave or even argue. However, with the Full Moon making a tense square to passionate Pluto, bad relationships can suddenly be thrown overboard, especially if you’ve been keeping your mouth shut, you might just let your partner have it! Usually, this is when we hit that boiling over point for those folks who are harboring some sort of resentment for their partners.
Watch for how many skeletons you have hiding in the closet, as secrets and deceptions can be revealed under this Full Moon time, and for some this means exposure to everyone, so possibly over social media. Someone can just take your business and go Public with it, which can be rather embarrassing.
For those couples who have been dealing with cheating or adultery, there actually can be some more positive scenarios. This Full Moon can help you if you’ve had an affair or were cheated on, as it brings folks back together to work things out.
The Full Moon is always a time of heightened sensitivity as people tend to be more intuitive and just plain Psychic more so than usual. So pay attention and listen to your gut instincts, and follow your intuition closely.
Full Moon October 2019 Times and Dates
Eastern 5:08 pm
Central 4:08 pm
Pacific 2:08 pm
Mountain 3:08 pm
If you live in a different time zone, please adjust.
October 14: Sun square Pluto You just might have to deal with some folks or circumstances that make you take a step back so you can figure out what you want and who you really want to associate with. Confrontations give you clarity during this time as long as you watch how you react. Talking with those who have been your tried and true friends will help you figure it all out. And these challenges might be rough but can help you in the long-term. Work on being flexible and thoughtful with others and consider all your options before making any decisions. We are being taught what part of our destiny we can control and the parts we can’t, so allow this time to pass first before doing anything major.
October 23: Sun enters Scorpio With the Sun’s shift into more passionate and emotionally driven Scorpio, our feelings tend to be more extreme and intense. In whatever areas of your life you need power or stamina this energy can help you, as it is a time we are more resourceful and determined. Use the Scorpio strength during this time as its energy can help you follow your passions no matter how big or small! Our thoughts will dive deeply into the corners of our minds, staying busy is key to fighting off suspicions and paranoid thoughts during this time. Work on solving little mysteries especially for others, as it can be emotionally satisfying.
October 27: New Moon in Scorpio What a powerful potent New Moon this is going to be folks, as we have access to knowledge that helps us figure out secrets and agendas. This is a good time to dig up old emotional baggage to heal, so you can claim your new beginning! People tend to rise and fall from power under the New Moon in Scorpio! It’s time to put it all in folks, give it everything you got to further your goals, allow the passion and strength this New Moon can give you to help inspire you.
October 31: Mercury goes Retrograde in Scorpio Here we go again folks, at this point, we have already been experiencing the slow down of Mercury as it prepared for its Retrograde phase. Which means there’s probably already been miscommunications and little glitches along the way. The good news is that you have an opportunity to revisit and revise ideas, contracts, and agreements during this three and half week cycle. If you went along with something that just didn’t sit right with you or didn’t speak up when you should have to avoid conflicts, now is the time to go back and make things right with yourself and others!
This is a strong time for the truth to come out. Make sure to wait out just how you will react to any information or news you receive until you have checked things out first, and maybe even go over them again and make sure, as this is a time of confusion for all of us. This is the worst time to be making important decisions about your future since you will more than likely change your mind a few more times anyway. Once Mercury turns direct on November 20, you will have the information you need to make better more sound judgments.
Mercury goes Retrograde on Halloween during Scorpio Season this time around, and this makes it the perfect backdrop for a creepy Halloween vibe, but this is exciting energy for those of you who enjoy this time of year! With Mercury Retrograde we tend to get visitors from our past, but the veils between this world and other realms are very thin as it is Halloween or the Day of the Dead time as well, therefore many of you will experience some sort of visit from ancestors or loved ones who have crossed over! This can be in our dreams, but also while awake. Mercury Retro’s energy seems to sync right into this year’s Halloween celebrations, as those veils are blurred during this time and it’s easier to connect. Make sure and honor those loved ones who are no longer here in this realm because they are with you in spirit.
Rubys Astro Readings
“Sun in Scorpio”
Oct 23rd – Nov 22nd
For All Zodiac Signs:
The Sun is shifting into transformational, mysterious Scorpio and “Scorpio Season” officially begins. This transit runs through November 21st. The sign of Scorpio is notoriously known for being the darkest, (symbolically speaking) most mysterious, and psychological sign in the Zodiac, as it explores the soul deeply while under the light of the Sun.
Scorpio energy for each and every one of us is about depth, intimacy, and transformation. Anything fake or false will be shown for what it truly is while the Sun is in this sign, so if something or someone is superficial it simply won’t work for us at this time, only the real deal will do! Scorpio is the detective of the Zodiac, therefore we are more interested in getting to the bottom of our problems, to uncover what’s been hidden, suppressed, or unseen, or even unknown. Under this energy, you might actually enjoy all that is odd, taboo, or different. Anything that’s just plain or average may not be enough during this time.
Over the last month during Libra season we worked towards being fair and equal. But while under all this Scorpio energy we accept the fact that “life isn’t fair” and understand that pain and suffering are actually part of the process of life. In order to truly evolve the soul we must transform ourselves which means we must end something to begin anew. The sign of Scorpio is often represented by the Scorpion, but also The Mythical Bird, the “Phoenix” which can represent this brave sign, the Phoenix story is about how it flies up in the air and catches fire and turns to dust, only to resurrect itself and come back to life to start over again! So just like this story, all of this Scorpio energy teaches us that we have to sometimes fall apart, let something end or die off in order to resurrect ourselves or our lives to tap into some kind of new energy!
Scorpio energy is sexy, mysterious, and provocative, so there is going to may be something interesting that sparks up in our relationships. We often look for a love that is committed and long-term during this time. This Scorpio influence keeps us perhaps a little more reserved about how passionate we are feeling, but we can still be strong-willed and intense, as this is a time of powerful emotions and some of you might feel rather emotional during its transit! This energy can transform certain things in your life, of course, depending on where it is going through in your own personal Astrology Birth Chart! Which I can tell you all about in a personal Astrology reading with me, but in the end it can help heal you!
The more shadow side of Scorpio energy is we can become more easily jealous, paranoid, obsessive, and manipulative. And this energy also can cause some folks to become obsessive, going on and on about issue or problem, over and over again, and even if you get nowhere you might find it hard to stop once you have started on whatever you are focused on. Despite how scary or creepy this all might sound, Scorpio is still part of the Zodiac Wheel, and we all have a little Scorpio in each of us.
Curious Mercury and loving Venus are also in the sign of Scorpio where they will stay throughout Scorpio Season. This means our soul, hearts, and minds are all being ruled by Scorpio energy, therefore, some of you will be breaking things down to rise up once again, and perhaps resurrect yourselves in some way. This can be an amazing energy to work with if you want to finish something in your life, after all, Scorpio Season is a time of endings, hence why we choose to celebrate Halloween during this time, as it originated from the Day of the Dead. But this also signifies a time of rebirth, and you can rise again.
During this time of breakdown we might face some real challenges, also with larger than life Jupiter currently in Scorpio. There are so many planets either in Scorpio or moving through it, that we are already starting to see its influence as it’s a bit of a darker time, where lots of folks are getting sick and quite a few are choosing to leave this earthly plane and crossover. This just might be the theme for the next 3 weeks or so. We are in the breakdown for now folks, but this is also a time of powerful transformation. Then once we enter into Sagittarius season starting November 23rd, we can start to work on rebuilding our lives and getting what we really want, especially with lucky Jupiter moving into the sign it rules, Sagittarius, for nearly 12 months!
As we get closer to Halloween a Full Moon will occur in the sign of Taurus on October 24th! This Full Moon is going to a bit of a challenging energy for us because it can make people feel extremely anxious and some folks are going to act quite crazy! This may not be such an easy influence to get through, so it’s important to understand that this Full Moon is full of disruptive and challenging energy, especially in our love lives and for some of you around your finances.
This Full Moon in Taurus can bring unexpected changes in your love life, relationships, and anything your feeling emotional about already! One thing the Moon in Taurus will do is awaken your senses and sensibilities, as this is a very sensitive sign in one of the most sensitive aspects, however, it also is a time of opportunity to understand your existing relationships, especially with Venus (Taurus ruling planet, and the planet of Love and Money) in Retrograde, as we are already thinking strongly about any issues we have concerning love or money.
All of this might sound a bit frightening, but it’s not all bad! The power of this energy can turn unexpected changes into opportunities. There also maybe unexpected love connections made and practical solutions to any issues you’ve already been dealing with in your love life. And this might bring up new issues to also figure out. This Full Moon has a way of magnifying problems that are opposing forces in your world because the Sun is Opposite the Moon during a Full Moon anyway, always. There’s going to be strong feelings of tension and pressure and you can end up feeling ran down or exhausted by it. It is going to be a highly emotional time starting really soon, but it doesn’t have to be negative depending on how you handle it.
The Full Moon is clashing with unpredictable Uranus, the planet of change, rebellion, and revolution, so it’s going to shake up things and upset the status quo, and the Sun will shift into Scorpio a day before. Plus shadowy Venus Retrograde will make a strong connection to the strong Sun. So starting today and the days ahead to the Full Moon you can feel quite rattled and nerve-racked!
If you’re a sensitive person by nature, so an Empath, Psychic, Healer, or just highly intuitive, you need to make sure and get those energetic SHIELDS UP all around you to block out some of this energy.
All the fixed signs of the Zodiac so Taurus, Scorpio, Leo, and Aquariuscan feel confused and foggy. But all of us no matter what Sign you maybe could see an old relationship come back around for up to two weeks after the Full Moon comes together. This may not be such a good thing due the whole Venus is Retrograde energy going on as well, however, there will be some of you who will make it through together.
Dates to Pay Attention To:
October 23rd – It’s Scorpio season! With the Sun entering the Sign of Scorpio the Veils between this physical reality and other realms become very thin for the next 30 days, and we should be honoring our loved ones who crossed over, as Halloween approaches we really should think about where it originated, in the end, it is about the people who lived here and their legacy! But you also might experience some sort of paranormal event during this time, as the ones who crossed over tend to want to say hi!
October 24th – Full Moon in Taurus! Time to “Set Intentions” and Release what is no longer working or serving you, write out what it is you want to let go of in your life, be it feelings, situations, behaviors, thoughts, or people.

A Look Ahead To Scorpio Season
The above is a gallery with just two images. It’s an easier way to create visually appealing layouts, without having to deal with floats. You can also easily convert the gallery back to individual images again, by using the block switcher.
Between October 23rd and 30th, there is what’s called a Stellium of planets in Astrology coming together all in the sign of Scorpio, so this is going to be an extremely intense Scorpio Season. Mental Mercury and over the top Jupiter making a challenging connection in Scorpio. The Sun and shady Venus (more in its shadow-self due to its Retrograde cycle.) Whenever there are more than three planets in one sign at the same time, it’s called a Stellium and it creates a vortex of energy that shines a light in whatever part of your personal Astrology Birth Chart it is going through.
Some of you will meet challenges during this time with the same theme, while others will actually thrive due to this energy. All the water signs, so Scorpio, Cancer, and Pisces should enjoy this energy and flow more easily through it. But again to understand this energy more personally and how it affects you, book a Reading Session with me, Ruby, and I will look through your own personal Astrology Birth Chart and tell you just what part of your life this is going to affect, and where the strongest energy will be so you can work with it for your benefit.

This Fall is one of the most important times of the year in regard to our Karmic connections, and October is going to be a most interesting month indeed. ~Ruby
Another planet is finally moving forward soon and is nearly the last outer-planet to finally come out of its Retrograde cycle from nearly six months of Retrogrades, it’s been, rough folks.
Starting October 1st Pluto moves out of its Retrograde cycle, where it’s been since the spring. This is a huge shift, as this Retrograde cycle has been life-changing for some folks. If you have any Planets in Aries, Cancer, Libra, or Capricorn that are strong in your own personal “Astrology Birth Chart,” you’ve probably been dealing with some seriously major big challenges, changes, and transformations in your life. There might have been some endings that have left you feeling sad or gloomy under this transit. Some folks will actually start to see prosperity and a maybe a run of good luck that could change your whole entire life, especially if you are a Taurus or Virgo, or if your Natal Pluto Sign is in those signs at the time of your birth. But again no matter what your Sign maybe, look forward to moving at your own pace once again and for you to feel like you have some degree of control over your life and most importantly yourself.
October 2nd and 3rd – Is a time to get away from those folks who seem agitated or frustrated, the planet of communication Mercury is making a tense Square to the control freak of the Cosmos, Pluto, and it is not a good time for business dealings, and it can just be a testy time when it comes to negotiations or contracts, so avoid them if you can on these days.
Venus In Retrograde – Relationships & Money
Venus goes Retrograde in the sign of Scorpio. October 5th through November 15th
If you have the Sun, Moon or Rising Sign in either Libra or Taurus, you may need to take extra special precautions during this cycle. Tread carefully! Regardless this can be an important time in your life no matter what your Zodiac signs maybe, this aspect seems to push you to reconsider your relationships and it brings up the ongoing question if you are happy or not! The good thing about a Venus in Retrograde cycle is how it’s a time to review over our love life, affections (crushes), relationships, and finances. This can be a time when you decide to take charge of your relationships or finances and give them the attention they so desperately need, and question current projects and commitments. This gives you some time to play catch up with your own heart and explore the possibilities. Work on negotiations and partnerships both intimate and financial or business. It’s also a good time to work on solving conflicts, especially in our relationships.
Getting married while Venus is Retrograde is not recommended! I mean at all, no matter if you planned it out or not. So if someone asks you to marry them or vice versa, it’s best to wait until after this Retrograde cycle is over to actually have the wedding. It is not a time for heavy financial or even personal commitments either. It’s just difficult for anyone in a new relationship to gain any kind of commitment or have longevity while Venus is moving backward. But when Venus is in the sign of Scorpio, it’s even worse! Marriages and business relationships formed now probably won’t last. If you are going to make a commitment in love or around money, might I suggest you either get it done by October 5 or wait until the Retrograde phase is over in mid-November? This also goes for any ceremonies that are a re-commitment of some kind as well.
New Moon – October 9th
Look forward to the next New Moon, aka “Dark Moon” phase on October 9th, (when a New Moon is called a Dark Moon it is actually a good thing, just think of coming out of the Dark into the Light and what you are able to see or learn.) This New Moon will be in the sign of Libra, therefore our relationships are going to be of the utmost importance, as this influence offers us an opportunity for new starts in both ongoing relationships and former ones, which is going to be interesting considering relationship-ruled Venus is also in Retrograde. You might just return to an old flame during this time. Also, some folks will return to old jobs, or make some sort of amends with friends or family members they might have been estranged from. This is a time of forgiveness, which we need after such a rough summer of Retrograde Planets. This New Moon can be good for all types of new beginnings.
October, in general, is a good month for getting into Past Life Regression, especially if it’s around relationships of any kind. This time can help you connect to the emotional wounds of your Past Lives and the connections you had with certain people; like soul-mates, family members, and estranged friends. Working out the Karma you have with these people might be easier than usual. The best thing you can do is meditate on these people and allow yourself to let go of any emotional wounds you remember and don’t forget to forgive yourself while you are it.
However, there is a bit of an issue with the New Moon due to the “Cosmic Lovers” of the Zodiac having a lovers spat during this time when more masculine Mars makes a tense Square to feminine Venus, and Venus rules over this New Moon in the sign of Libra! This means any deeper issues with feeling dissatisfied in your relationship might be activated. Trying to take certain steps to move in a different direction can lead to aggressive behavior, and with Uranus in a Square as well making attempts to get our lives on track might be rudely interrupted by unforeseen forces of nature that we have no control over. Follow the ways of this New Moon in Libra and promote peace, harmony, and compromise when you can and you will do much better.
Venus in Retrograde in Scorpio is making some nicer connections to Neptune and Pluto, and this means if we stay practical than we can fix the mistakes we have made from the last few years, so this can make things much more pleasant. Shifted blame on others for the way things have not worked out in our own lives will just create chaos! It’s important more now than ever to forgive yourself and others, which allows us to start over again in most relationships.
Sun Enters Scorpio
The Sun enters the sign of mysterious Scorpio on October 23rd.
Scorpio’s key phrase is “I desire”, so with the Sun in Scorpio, we all can take on the traits of this deeply soulful, sexy, and mysterious sign. This is a time of depth, intimacy, and extreme feelings. Anything superficial, fake, or false won’t do under this sign. There’s a strong urge to merge with someone under this powerfully connected sign. In love, we can become obsessive and go overboard.
Stay busy working on solving the little mysteries in life while searching for ways to get to the bottom of problems. Especially, other people’s issues, because it helps us feel satisfied and can bring feelings of contentment. Fake or false anything won’t do, as we’re searching for what’s real and authentic. All that is hidden, taboo, secret, or suppressed interests us during this time.
Over the last month with the Sun in Libra, we worked toward keeping things peaceful and fair. However, under Scorpio, the vibe is more how life isn’t fair so deal with it! It’s that simple. Scorpio’s influence is more provocative, and usually kind of quiet or guarded. But we can feel strongly passionate, intense, and strong-willed. This can be a strong time for healing and transformation. But watch out folks for jealousy, vindictiveness, and manipulative behavior, which are just some of the more negative expressions of Scorpio’s influence.
At the same time, the Sun shifts into more powerful Scorpio, the Moon in Aries will make a nice connection to Mars and a tense Square to Pluto. This means a “Solar Month” of people feeling energized, but also we can feel highly agitated and frustrated. We are lead by our emotions during this time, but it’s important to think before speaking or you can say things that can hurt others, and end up having to do some serious damage control! This can be a volatile energy, so it’s important not to be so serious, and lighten up during this time! You just may have to remind yourself from time to time that you are taking things way to seriously and try to relax.
Full Moon in Taurus
The Full Moon comes together October 24th when the Sun in Scorpio makes a connection to the Moon in Taurus around 11:45 EDT, 10:45 CST, 12:45 PST, and 9:45 MDT. This is a time when we are reawakened to our interest in the physical world and our own sensual needs and desires. It’s ok to be focused on yourself a little during this time, but you should watch for being overly stubborn.
This will be a strong potent Full Moon my friends, as its energies will have built up for a while, and that pressure will be felt as the energy starts coming out. Many different Cosmic connections involve the Moon during this time, and this includes shocking Uranus, the willful Sun, and relationship-oriented Venus in Retrograde. There are certain situations that can make you feel torn between two different paths, one is going after what you want, and the other is a pull to escape and ignore reality in some ways. Karmic Saturn makes a nice connection to the Sun and Moon during this Full Moon, therefore the best way to gain your independence is through being honest and hard work, take care of your responsibilities and you’ll be rewarded. Since it’s easier to concentrate on reality our focus will be on doing what’s expected of us.
Full Moon’s are always about letting go, and this gives us a chance to complete unfinished or forgot about tasks and projects, and to get rid of things we no longer want or need. And with seven planets in fixed signs during this lunation, we should be working on releasing what’s been emotionally difficult to handle, which is necessary to move forward.
During the last week of October, a nice connection between influential Jupiter and wounded healer/teacher Chiron forms, and will peak on November 1st. This influence can lift our spirits a bit, as it brings us the opportunity to let go of negative attitudes that might have been undermining our progress. Being free from its restrictions can help us feel set free. We are especially open to learning from others, this helps us understand each other and respect each other’s opinions and points of view. This also exposes us to different ways of thinking and philosophies. We’re better able to share what we have learned from our past mistakes and experiences. Mentally curious Mercury hooks into this influence and aligns with Jupiter on the 29th, as well. This helps us to focus on our goals and not get caught up in details, so it can be a rewarding time. It also opens our minds to help us visualize in more expanded ways, and see the whole picture of any given situation. We can get our point across with a strong spirit and enthusiasm because we enjoy learning during this time.
