Happy Birthday Scorpio, and a happy Scorpio new moon to all! This new moon became exact on the 30th of October, but will be powerfully operative until the next one in Sagittarius, which occurs on November 29th. Scorpio is famous, or perhaps infamous, for its intensity, depth, and passion. They make the best researchers, detectives, and analysts. They excel in any endeavor that requires an ability to get to the bottom of an issue. These are the hardest people in the entire zodiac to fool. They can sense insincerity from a mile away. They are also very hard workers and dedicated friends, partners, and employees. They are often given roles of responsibility because they work hard and tend to be efficient, if not obsessive about their work.
This month is a time to consider what you would like to get passionate about, and put some of this Scorpio energy in a focused direction. There may be a creative endeavor, an exercise regime, or some type of project that could use this intense attention. If we don’t find a good channel for this strong drive, we may find ourselves obsessing about unhelpful matters, such as ruminating over regrets. If you have considered working with a new healer, therapist, or dentist, this is an excellent time to find the right person.
“If you drink too much from a bottle marked poison, it is almost certain to disagree with you sooner or later.”
– Lewis Carroll
There is so much energy, talent, and possibility within, but when this is used for self-reproach, suffering can be great. You are far too aware of your shortcomings, and you too easily downplay all of your immense talents and positive qualities. Consider your gifts for writing, teaching, and communicating which should get attention now, as there are people in need of your knowledge and experience.
“The best thing about the future, is that it comes one day at a time.”
– Abraham Lincoln
There are ideas coming about new ways to make money or supplement income, but the time isn’t quite right for implementation. They will crystalize around the end of the month. You are preparing for a quantum leap, but no pressure. Groups are positive now as long as they are working towards a common goal that fills your sense of idealism. Give yourself plenty of quiet time now for visualization and contemplation, and watch it all click into place.
“I like to reminisce with people I don’t know.”
– Stephen Wright
This isn’t the time to spend too much time alone, as there is much to gain now from group involvement. You may, in fact, be called to be the leader of the group, as you have passionate knowledge that wants to come to the forefront this month. Your love nature is strong now, making you attractive and magnetic. There may be temptation to spend the energy on one special person, but be sure to save plenty of time for friends and for yourself this month.
“The sky’s voice is such that one’s mind must be very quiet to hear God speak.”
Something in you is ready for a new adventure and perhaps even a new direction. The trick now is to keep your boundaries up enough to listen to your inner voice that can nudge you in just the right direction. There may be demands from work and all other distractions, as you have a way of making yourself indispensable to those around you. Plenty of time for meditation, journaling, quiet walks, etc., will go far this month.
“Any real ecstasy is a sign you are moving in the right direction, don’t let any prude tell you otherwise.”
– St. Teresa of Avila
You may be drawn to move in a deeper rhythm these days, but remember that this does not need to feel heavy or difficult, so try to avoid the pitfalls associated with taking it all too seriously. Consider joining or even beginning a group that can go deep with you; be it a spiritual/metaphysical book study or perhaps a mastermind type of group where participants encourage and support one another with their goals.
“Conformity is the jailer of freedom and the enemy of growth.”
– John F. Kennedy
The month starts off with a wild and even erratic energy that could assist in a quantum leap or a quantum mistake, depending on how consciously the influences are worked with. You are feeling more impulsive than usual and resonating with freedom in at least one aspect of your life. The building pressure could find a release valve in implementing new ideas, especially after the 9th, when you get clarity on how you hold the keys to your jail cell.
“Take a chance! All life is a chance. The man who goes farthest is generally the one who is willing to do and dare.”
– Dale Carnegie
The full moon on the 13th of the month is in your sign, which can make for interesting action in your most important relationships, especially romantic ones. You are probably feeling some conflicting pulls between the stability of work and daily routines, and a thirst for change and adventure. You are preparing to make a change or two and feeling unusually open and experimental this month. Take advantage of this opening, as the coming changes will be to your liking.
“There is no trick to being a humorist when you have the whole government working for you.”
– Will Rogers
Now is a time where you can find both inspiration and recognition for any contributions you might make with writing, speaking, or teaching. If you are already doing any of these things, give yourself plenty of time to court the deeper ideas that are ready to inspire you. This is a time to stay out of the political merry-go-round that the collective is captivated with, as you are hearing a different drummer with some important messages.
“What keeps us alive, what allows us to endure? I think it is the hope of loving or being loved.”
– Meister Eckhart
This promises to be a month of creativity and romance, so slow down and remember what makes you feel romanced. Take the extra time now to be silly and impractical. Give as many breaks as possible from the relentless to-do list. Love is an inside job, and the more you find it, the more you have to give.
“The fish in the water that is thirsty needs serious professional counseling.”
The holiday season is shaping up nicely for you, as you are finding yourself busy with the daily grind and ready for a quiet break. You will feel more energetic and supported if you can start to give yourself more quiet time early in the month. Consider how much you might be seeking approval from others in your home and workplace lately. It could be time to break out of this old draining cycle, and this is good news!
“They can be like a sun, words. They can do for the heart what the sun can do for the fields.”
– St. John of the Cross.
Buckle down for the first half of the month, as you have some important projects involving writing and teaching that often get ignored in the busy daily grind. You will be feeling adventurous once the full moon comes along on the 13th, so consider working hard for the first half of the month and playing hard for the later half.
“There are no passengers on Spaceship Earth. Everybody’s crew.”
– Marshall McLuhan
You are at a turning point within a turning point, as you are picking up speed on some projects that take you out of your comfort zone in more that one way. If you are feeling particularly within your comfort zone these days, then somehow you have missed the call, but if you are having some jittery butterflies as you move into uncharted territory, than congratulations…you are right on cue!
