Week beginning Monday, 23 October 2017

This could be your lucky week as the annual meeting of the Sun and lucky planet Jupiter takes place in your sign. Do be confident in all that you do. However also guard against allowing confidence to spill over into complacency. You still have to work hard to achieve your goals! The move of Mars this week could mean you're not sleeping as well as you would like to. Counter this by taking five minutes to process your day before bedtime.

Month of October

There are huge changes brewing behind the scenes, as you enter the month.

The Sun and Mercury are in Libra - marking an introspective phase, asking you to reconnect with an inner truth before you re-birth. But with Venus and Mars traveling through the part of your chart, representing your "friends" early in the month, suggesting socially things are buzzing.

So above all October asks for a balance between your busy social life, and alone time, to process your next steps.

Around the Full Moon on October 5th, you could see a small wish come true. If you're single, you might even meet someone who ticks all your boxes, and then some. Just be careful not to project fantasies.

You can also start a healing process in a relationship and friendship, if you remember: nobody is perfect, not even you. Forgiveness is key.

The biggest game changer arrives as Jupiter - the planet of abundance, good fortune and benevolence - enters Scorpio for the first time in 12 years, bestowing you with his grace over the coming 12 months.

You're growing in wisdom, self-awareness, realizing your greater potential, and gifts. The more readily you shed old skin, the greater will be your expansion. When in doubt, err on the side of kindness and generosity. Be the bigger person - because you are.

Once the Sun enters Scorpio - step into the light, share your inner beauty and reveal yourself. Even if you can't see it, let me tell you, watching you unfurl is a breathtaking sight.

Ah, you deep and dark, sexy and mysterious Scorpios! Have you ever met a prudish Scorp? I really don't think I have. You just can't help but exude something a little taboo. Those of your sign tend to be passionate and single-minded, capable of depths of emotions. You need intensity the way flowers need rain. You have a sharp mind and - sometimes a sharp tongue. If someone can't see the obvious, staring them in the face, you want to whip back the veils of illusion, to improve their view. You want to go to the heart of every matter and you won't shy away from the truth just because it's not exactly what you or others want to hear.

You're a Water sign and ruled by Mars and Pluto. As I've mentioned many time in many columns, the fact that your ruler Pluto was demoted to being a Dwarf Planet is immaterial to you. Pluto is the dark side of your nature - your shadow self. Having Pluto 'less visible' works for you - you get to be just that little bit more covert and even subversive.

And yes, like the Scorp stereo-type say, you are sexy, because sexiness comes from being real - and that's something that comes naturally to you.

Scorpio also rules detectives, undertakers and sex workers, by the way. Please don't take offense! It's just that you can be like a detective - going deeper and further into the shabby and shady alleys of existence, where lesser souls fear to tread. Undertakers? You are less afraid than most others of the concept of mortality. In fact, it may even fascinate you. And sex workers? Scorpio rules sex, and not just the love-making side of it!

You love what is hidden - you want to uncover it. And you also love to hide. Careful not to succumb to the temptation to bury the truth!

You like to be alone, with your thoughts, as much as you like to share others' company. You are enigmatic and truly mysterious. Yes, you have that famous sting in your tail, but you are also a healer. Spending time with a Scorpio is rewarding. You may not always show your friends and lovers the 'sunny' side of life, but with your ability to handle extremes and your capacity to feel profoundly, you teach the rest of us a little more about what it means to be human - dark side and all. Try not to be obsessive, though. Learn to forgive and forget where possible. And allow your watery side to carry you along life's ebb and flow.

You're not interested in the superficial which is why your relationships run so deep. You relish privacy and can take a secret to the grave. You have oceans of tolerance inside you, which is why people love to be around you. You accept what others find unacceptable. You make it OK to be scared. You don't shy away from the shadow - rather you quest for truth. You're not interested in skirting around tough subjects and - if you are truly, madly, deeply Scorpionic - you may even be blessed with magical powers.
