It’s Scorpio Season Again

Tomorrow the Sun makes its ingress into Scorpio and those of us who live in the northern latitudes are keenly aware we are transitioning from the beauties of autumn, which Libra celebrates, to the starkness of winter. Scorpio relishes the shorter days, falling leaves beginning to decay, misty mornings and the deepening quiet as the natural world prepares for winter hibernation.

This year Scorpio season starts off with Mercury, Venus and Mars in Scorpio plus a nice sextile from the Sun to Pluto, Scorpio’s ruling planet – guaranteed to make this a very Scorpio ingress. If you enjoy this often misunderstood sign, you will love seeing them thrive under these influences.

The Moon is in Taurus, Scorpio’s favorite partner, and she is trine to the conjunction of Ceres and Pluto in Capricorn. This suggests we better respect Mother Nature or else! When Taurus and Capricorn team up, we are reminded nothing less than solid, practical, concrete results are expected. No airy fairy promises and procrastination allowed.

The only fly in the ointment may be the square between Mars in Scorpio and Neptune in Aquarius but as Ralfee Finn wrote in her weekly forecast, the trine Mars also makes to Jupiter and Uranus in Pisces will prevent paralysis from setting in. Jupiter and Uranus make a powerful, dynamic combination full of enthusiasm and tons of energy. Also a good time to consider the power of water . . . 😀

Other than a waning semi-sextile to retrograde Venus in Scorpio, Saturn in Libra forms no major aspects to the other planets in this chart. Don’t count Saturn’s influence out though . . . no one is better at biding their time, waiting for the right moment to give us a stern reality check.

For those who are celebrating their Solar Return today, this looks like a good one. The Mercury-Sun-Venus stellium in Scorpio is excellent for rummaging around internally and with Pluto’s help, excising some old bad habit patterns for once and for all. (FYI: I did a little research on whether or not having either Mercury or Venus retrograde in the Solar Return is significant and came to the conclusion it doesn’t.)

A good time for introspection and getting insights in what needs re-working in our lives – just remember to be kind to yourself in the process. Enjoy the sights and smells of this most interesting time of year – whether it is autumn in the northern hemisphere or spring in the southern.

A big ***HAPPY BIRTHDAY*** to all my Scorpio friends and associates . . . you know who you are!! 😀

  1. Hi Diane,
    first of all I missed your birthday, I’m sorry. 😦 I hope it was a good one! I was here before but the comments were still restricted and I couldn’t find my old password for real astrologers.
    Over here, we’re still turning into Autumn, the transition has mild. I’ve been doing a whole lot of cleaning and sorting things out, throwing a away or giving away. It’ll carry on for a while, which is very fitting for the Scorpio season. It’s insane the amount of things you accumulate through the years and, to be honest, I love getting rid of things as I feel they drag me down and restrict me. So Autumn cleaning instead of spring cleaning. 🙂
    I used to like Autumn a lot but the last two Autumn/Winters were particularly bad for me and my family so I wasn’t very excited about this one. But I’m focusing on the good things about the season. Such a long comment 😛

    • Hi DM!!!! 😀

      FYI – my B-Day is tomorrow and today is my Solar Return!

      Yes, clearing out the “deadwood” from one’s possessions is a very Scorpio season thing. I’ve been getting the itch to dig a little deeper and start reducing the amount of stuff I have too. It was much easier to stay on top of that type of thing when I moved every couple of years. 😛

      The years of the Saturn-Uranus opposition in Virgo-Pisces were pretty tough for lots of us. Good to see your native Sagittarius optimism peeping out again. I’m starting to count the days until Mars leaves Scorpio for Sagittarius now (5 days). We need more fire to lift our spirits.

  2. Oh silly me. I had a really strong feeling that it was around the Libra/Scorpio cusp but I thought since it was already the 22nd it had already been. Hope you had a lovely day!

    • Thanks, Deb!! 😀

      P.S. So love Scorpio season.

      Me too, though since the Sun is in my twelfth house I do tend towards introspection this time of year. One thing I do know is that I am VERY happy Election Day lands on Nov 2 this year . . . 😛
