There is something beautifully intense about Scorpio season. Halloween is a time when you can express your obsession with gore in a way that won’t be frowned upon, and your all-time favorite horror movies are finally being added back to streaming services.
While the obsessed determination and emotional intensity of Scorpio season tends to get a pretty bad rap, it prompts you to deepen and solidify the bonds that you lightly started during Libra season.
Autumn started off in a different way this year, however, making communication a challenge as Mercury last went retrograde in 2021, but it finally ended on October 18. While many of the signs are in the clear, there are a few that aren’t out of the woods just yet.
Scorpio is a fixed water sign devoted to emotional security and privacy, and because this sign is located in a different house in each person’s birth chart, the energy of this sign can manifest differently for everyone.
For Aries, Gemini, and Sagittarius, the Scorpio season highlights what are called the “dark” houses (sixth, eighth and twelfth houses). These houses rule matters that are often private and tucked away in our lives, only being magnified by Mars’s influence during Scorpio season.
Since this season already began on October 23, those signs could be prompted to step down in order to deal with some underlying issues. This is how struggles can appear:
Personal boundaries in your relationships will be highlighted. The connections you may have made during Libra season are now being put to the test. As Scorpio season begins, be sure to reflect on how vulnerable you feel around this person.
Can we trust them? Will they respect your personal limits? As a sign ruled by Mars, you take your independence very seriously, and a partner who respects that is key.
This season is probably going to put a little strain on the dynamics of your relationship, but only to make sure that it can stand the test of time.
Your daily habits and routines demand attention. As we move through a fun and breezy season, and your ruling planet, Mercury, finally comes out of retrograde and you probably feel a little uncomfortable.
Scorpio season is a great time to prioritize organizing and give you the boost you need in the right direction. The fixed energy of this season encourages you to carry on with your new, healthy habits and routines to the end, even if you start to get bored or lose interest.
It is important that you maintain good control over your responsibilities, but be sure not to overdo it. You might become a little too obsessed with an outcome, so make sure you find a healthy balance that is right for you.
You tend to show yourself enthusiastically in all areas of your life, but it’s important to remember that you can’t pour from an empty mug. In order to continue to spread your wisdom and knowledge, you need to spend enough time alone, taking care of yourself, whether it’s reading, meditating, or keeping a journal.
While this is not the most social time of year for you, it is necessary that you press pause on some of your stuff so that you can meet your own needs.
