Happy Scorpio Season to all my fellow Scorpio readers! It is finally our time to shine, even though we do that throughout the year. We have a lot to look forward to, as does everyone, with the shifts of the Moon and Mercury into our beloved sign.
On the 24th, the planet of communication, Mercury, shifted into Scorpio. I am beyond excited for that. Mercury in Scorpio represents a time for penetrating conversation, indulging obsessions, psychic bonds, dirty talk, and secrets. Watch out for your tone, however. This sign shift comes with the downside of a large communication barrier that may have people seeing problems where they don’t exist or taking things too personally.
On the 27th (my birthday! it’s lit), the Moon moves into Libra. This provides the right energy for increased sociability, interest in new acquaintances, and desire for mutual understanding. This is truly a time for balance. Now is a good time for social gatherings, celebrations, business meetings and a romantic rendezvous (or two)! However, your ability to make solid decisions suffers because people are more prone to doubts and hesitation now. This Friday, the 29th, our Moon makes its grand transition into Scorpio. This denotes an emotionally difficult time, as common with Scorpion tendencies. There is increased jealousy, greediness, envy and other negative feelings in the atmosphere. The colors of the world turn black and white and people are prone to brooding emotions. Sexuality and sensuality go up though! Strong, powerful emotions run high, while diplomacy and tact will noticeably decline. Scorpios, now is a good time to hold your tongue and process your anger instead of letting that stinger do its thing on a whim. However, it is a good time for any occupation which needs intensity and total devotion. The Moon will still be in Scorpio on the 30th and it will be a New Moon. Sensuality and vigor peak at this time as well as the clear head space to act upon intentions held for a while.
Advice to all: Watch your words this week, because they could take on a more biting or profound tone. Now is the time to get a little messy if you want to uncover the truth on something that’s been bothering you for a while. Tap into this Scorpio New Moon’s transformative power and eliminate aspects of your life that aren’t working any more. Start anew! Sun/Moon/Mercury in Scorpio: Just when you thought you couldn’t be in any higher demand — surprise! With nearly half the cosmos aligning in your favor, be prepared to launch/initiate whatever plans you’ve been working on behind the scenes as the spotlight is yours. Give the people what they’ve been waiting for.
