A long-held dream turns real. With your ruler Pluto going direct September 30 and Jupiter’s support until November 8, anything is possible. Even crazy blips at home and with family turn positive for your goals. An interfering person going back to 2010 will be overthrown, and that oppression ended. So push with all your might to make this happen!
October 5, Venus retrogrades at 10 degrees Scorpio, and your self-care is called into question. Venus retrogrades for 40 days and 40 nights (oh, the temptation!) until November 16 when she goes direct at 25 degrees Libra. Your very psychology is changing and is different by November 16. Simplified – and frankly more relaxed.
Every 8 years, Venus goes back to the same area of your chart, so each Venus retrograde is a repeat of the Venus retrograde that happened 8 years ago, 16 years ago, and so on.
Think back to the period between October 8, 2010 and November 18, 2010. What was going on then? Therein lies your clue.
Does it get easier, Scorpio? Yes, it does. You know something you did not know before, and that is priceless. You still want your loved one back, and now, as September ends it is time to relax, to give up your famous steely control, and ask for help. October is all about recovering your personal strength, seeing your life turn for the better, and enjoying some considerable success.
And you kind of have the secret to the universe. (That knowing something you did not know before. It’s pretty super wise.)
Because of the planetary activity in your twelfth house of the unconscious I expect you have been worrying. You may feel you have lost a lot in your life.
Despair breeds despair, and hope fulfills itself. It is time for you to hope, Scorpio.
You’re the most powerful sign of the zodiac, if you choose to use that power. Your ruling planet Pluto is awesome, magnificent – its power is unbelievably great. Its manifestation is god-like. I can say it no other way. And it goes direct end of September!
In your twelfth healing house you have:
The awesome, life-giving Sun
Brilliant thought planet Mercury
Nurturing mama asteroid Ceres
A fraught new Libra Moon on Monday, October 8
And your twelfth house, traditionally ruled by psychic Pisces, rules:
Spending time alone
Getting in touch with your unconscious
Remembering your past, including past sorrow
Activating your psychic gift
Healing and therapy: WHY do you sacrifice so much?
Places of confinement, including hospitals and prisons
You are not believing this entirely. There is a part of you that refuses to acknowledge this. Why is that?
Write it down, Scorpio, write it down. (Scorpio Jupiters make up the greatest number of writers.) You have a gift for this. You need your attention for yourself.
Pulled this way and that by your passions, it is hard to sustain a smile ALL the time.
But you’re doing a great job. No one deprives themselves or works harder than you.
Time to clear the decks. To make a move. To clear out that which is no longer serving you. To end or change this relationship which has been tormenting you.
There’s no one who can drive themselves like a Scorpio.
But this October, Scorpio, get set to change. (Remember, this is what you do best, sign of transformation!)
People rarely understand what a Scorpio is feeling – but then, you never tell them, so how can they know? Do you think everyone is a mind-reader like yourself?
You seem to be in a good flow, but take nothing for granted. Stay alert, keep reinventing yourself, and make use of every opportunity that comes your way. Your ruler Pluto direct in your house of communications has you talking and writing differently, and life becomes easier. Pluto spends about half the year in retrograde so gawd knows you’re used to it, but still. It makes for darker thoughts and suspicions, and it’s a relief to let these fade into the background.
People would be surprised to hear that comfort is something you need, but you DO need it, and it’s time to ask for it.
As I said in your last month’s horoscope, you are the most self-depriving of all the signs.
But not this month, Scorpio, not this month! People want to hear what’s on your mind. It’s good stuff. Trust it.
Remember this well as you step forward through October.
During Venus retrograde, particularly in YOUR sign, people will reappear, whether in actuality or through memory.
This retrograde ignites trust issues, legal issues, and relationship power struggles. You could feel a sense of abandonment or find the need to abandon something that you once held as dear. Watch for leaks, guard our valuables and your tongue, keep safe, and avoid polluted environments. Also, be on the watch for people who are polluting to your sense of self or are simply corrupt.
Positively, it offers an ideal time for soul searching and for inner exploration; seek counseling or other advice if you need it. A willingness to give it another try.
But the new Libra moon on Monday, October 8 will really signal the time to end your association. Also, ironically, to take on more responsibility within a group or community. You may see that you can’t function as well unless you have the group to back you up. Around this new moon you also could need to consult with a lawyer, or you find the need to revamp a contract or legal status/position. If you’re offered a contract watch for hidden clauses – you could sign on for more than you know.
Until mid-October then, the usual cautions are advised: review, revisit, revise, reuse. Do not buy anything major or sign contracts during this period unless you know you can return it or get out of it if you want to. Double-check everything you do. Keep a back up plan in mind, stay flexible and available, and throughout the cycle think in temporary measures or adopt a wait and see approach. Keep equipment, vehicles, tools, and your body in top running order, be especially safety conscious and put more attention toward preventative health or existing health concerns.
The end of October in particular is the time for contract talks, for professional advancement, for stepping into a parenting or more authoritative or responsible role, or for actualizing something that is dear to your heart. Until then you may have this sense of false starts – but please remember, this is only a temporary feeling.
As the month progresses, risk-taking becomes your new best friend.
