The Scorpio Zodiac Month of Magic, Mystery and Metaphysics

Gypsy This week we enter the realm of mysterious, magnetic Scorpio. The Sun enters the zodiac’s eighth sign on October 23rd at 12:44 a.m. MDT, and in so doing, opens the cosmic door to magical experience and metaphysical reality. While air-apparent Libra was social and mental, Scorpio is mystical and private. Libra loves sunlight, billowing clouds and shimmering rainbows, while Scorpio prefers moonlight, shadows and the intriguing possibilities of darkness.

As heavenly influences transform, check out inner clocks and internal dialogues. Do you feel yourself moving from a place of relative intellectual “lightness” to a position of deepening emotion, traveling from the intellectual realms of mind to the intuitive, psychic waters of the soul? Look for a shift from the frivolous to the focused, and direct attention toward deep desire. Examine motivation and intention as you do.


 Scorpio is the sign most associated with the taboo, the hidden, the clandestine and the secret. It rules the private areas and most precious, intimate pieces of our lives.  It is where we become possessive, obsessive and passionate. The evolutionary intent of Scorpio is akin to the sacred science of alchemy, which describes the process of transmuting one’s own material, physical “darkness” into a purified product of spiritual gold.  So, as we creep our way through the first week of Scorpio and move ever closer to Halloween, check it out. Get out the brooms and candlesticks, wands and witch hats. Collect bones and gather herbs. It’s the season of ghosts and goblins, spirits and spells. Light the fire and prepare the potions!

Aries (Mar. 21-Apr.19)
Early, early, on Oct. 23rd, the Sun leaves fairy book Libra and enters metaphysical Scorpio – the zodiac month of mystery and magic. Mars in passionate Leo fuels heartfelt fires and you may feel more obsessive or compulsive than usual. Focus on personal creative talents and channel energy in productive, positive ways. Light candles and enjoy darkness.

Taurus (Apr. 20-May 20)
With ruler Venus and mental Mercury in Libra, you may find yourself thinking, talking, wanting and walking a path of self-improvement. Temper strength and self-discipline with compassion as you work toward personal goals and ideals. Be kind and gentle with yourself and others. Humility is an ally. Remember, it’s about progress, not perfection.

Gemini (May 21-June 21)
Mental fires burn with curiosity as you feel yourself attracted to romantic themes and beautiful people. Express your own personal creativity in artistic ways as you explore avenues of creative self-expression. It’s all about love and mystery now. Indulge in happy thoughts and loving acts.

(June 22-July 22)
The Scorpio sun-time sparks romantic fires and ignites the hearts of Moonchildren. This is your time for feeling love and expressing it. A fortuitous aspect involving powerful Pluto in Capricorn opens a glittering cosmic door regarding partnership and marriage. Consider the options and possibilities. Cuddle at home and find peace within. Share the joy.

Leo (July 23-Aug.22)
You may feel pumped up and ready to go forth as Mars in Leo continues to fuel your engine and light your fire. Push forward, but don’t be too pushy or aggressive where others are concerned. Your personal strength is obvious and self-promotion is no longer necessary. A calm, diplomatic approach works best. Enjoy quiet nights at home with someone you love.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sep.22)
Saturn moves through the last degrees of Virgo this week and presents the Virgin with many opportunities for closure. Whether it’s personal behaviors and agendas, shared relationships or professional careers, you can see just how far you’ve come and how much you’ve grown. Certain things are simply over and done. Accept what is and live in the present.

Libra (Sep. 23-Oct.22)
It’s time to gather gifts, collect candles and count blessings. Another revolution around the Sun awards you with the opportunity to start fresh and begin again. Make this year one of renewed spirit and deepening purpose. Dive into the numinous waters of feeling and swim in the ocean of emotion. Discover inner magic and dance with the divine.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 22)
Your Happy Birthday month begins just past midnight, the morning of Oct. 23rd. Celebrate life and honor the magical, mystical dimensions of our metaphysical realms. Who are you and where are you going? What are you doing on Earth? Questions and answers awaken the sleuth. Enjoy the moment, keep looking for clues and embrace the mystery.

Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 20)
Mystery and magic abound as you feel like others might be playing tricks or setting you up. Keep your eyes open, but play the game. How many times have you sandbagged others? Karma happens, it’s a natural law. Thoughts fuel emotions and feelings motivate action. Energy doesn’t die, it simply transforms. Be your best, watch out for witches and have fun.

(Dec. 21-Jan. 19)
A supportive sextile from the Scorpio sun to Pluto in early Capricorn encourages personal metamorphosis regarding jointly held assets and shared resources. You’re in a powerful position of potential transformation where friends and associates are concerned. Dreams and visions must be reborn. Seek wise council and ask your angels.

(Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
Opportunities to heal continue as you rewrite the book on personal daily routines and agendas. Opening your heart to change, courting mystery and exploring fresh territory – body, mind and spirit – are all avenues to awakening, rebirth and renewal. Scorpio fuels fires of accomplishment and achievement. Make lists, set goals and get it done – one day at a time.

(Feb. 19-Mar. 20)
Seductive Scorpio pulls you toward mystical and mysterious realms of life and death. You may feel attracted to occult sciences, alchemy or the ancient wisdom schools and want to explore the spiritual and ethereal. Remain open, research and read. Get out and commune with Mother Nature – she’s the best teacher and she’ll show you the way.
