Once again the Sun has returned to the deep, quiet waters of Scorpio. This year it is accompanied on its journey by retrograde Mercury and Saturn in Scorpio. The sector of your chart where Scorpio lives is going to have some serious weight to it this year.
Scorpio folk are among my favorite people – loyal, hardworking and with a sense of humor so dry most don’t realize they were joking. I know because I have a similar problem with Mercury in Scorpio conjunct my Ascendant. *sigh* Every sign has its occasional bad apple and Scorpio is no exception, but don’t let those get in the way of appreciating the other wonderful people born under the eighth sign.
This year Scorpio season has a fairly easy flow to it. Yes, I know it begins with Mercury stationing retrograde but this is a sign that can handle that just fine. The first aspect the Sun makes is a sweet trine to Neptune in Pisces at 2°on October 25 which ought to give us wonderful dreams and encourage emotional harmony. Of course, it may encourage the use of recreational drugs too . . . Neptune is Neptune after all.
On the eventful day of November 1 when the fourth Uranus-Pluto square is exact, the Scorpio Sun is exactly sextile Pluto and conjunct Mercury. It is inconjunct Uranus in Aries. This places the Sun firmly on the side of its ruler, Pluto, and in opposition to that rebel, Uranus. Ruthless pragmatism may win out over a more idealistic approach. I suggest being absolutely honest because even little “white” lies will not escape notice.
A day or so later Mars in Virgo offers his help to the Sun via a sextile. I like this aspect for cranking out a LOT of work, especially detailed, picky projects that require concentration and tenacity. If you have to solve tech problems, this is very favorable influence. The best tech people I know are those who keep slogging away, trying one thing after another until they finally solve the problem.
This year the Sun will conjoin Saturn in Scorpio on November 6 at 14°. Those of you with birthdays that week will have this conjunction in your Solar Returns. I’m not the slightest bit concerned you all won’t be able to handle this influence with ease and grace. Most Scorps are very responsible people after all.
The last and best aspect is a rocking Sun-Jupiter trine on November 12 at 20°! You lucky Scorpios who have this aspect in your Solar Returns will feel the love all year. Jupiter is exalted in Cancer giving this trine an extra special blessing. May it bring you good fortune!
On November 21, Sagittarius season will hit the decks running. No doubt we will hear fire and air signs cheering when it does!
