This is the first full wknd of Libra Season, and it’s also a new moon weekend! At 5:54pm EST on the 25th, the Sun and Moon in Libra conjoin and spark a fresh wave of change and spiritual healing in Scorpios’ lives. Remember those positive habits you felt ready to implement in your life a few weeks ago, during the Pisces Full Moon? You’re going to feel motivated to stick to them even more during Libra Season. But there are moments when this will be easier said than done. Since Mercury’s still retrograde for 10 days, instead of trying to commit to brand new rituals or routines, it may be best to focus on past commitments you made to yourself that you were close to accomplishing but that you may have paused or given up on. It’s not too late to try again, Scorpio. Let this weekend’s Libra New Moon encourage you to be kinder to yourself, and to recommit to living a more holistic and harmonious life.

Mid-week, Jupiter, the largest planet in our solar system, which is currently retrograde in Aries, forms a semi-frictional aspect to Saturn in Aquarius. This Fire-Air energy can feel foreign to us watery Scorpios, so we may be more easily triggered as Virgo Season ends and Libra Season begins. You may have taken on the role of being the bigger person in a relationship lately, simply because you don’t want to waste your energy on frustrating circumstances. But the thing is, Scorpio, if you don’t let yourself feel rightfully angry, it’ll come out in different ways — perhaps you’ll explode when you least expect it or you’ll become resentful, or even vengeful. With the Moon spending time in fiery Leo this Wednesday and Thursday, find a way to release any pent-up anger, especially before the Libra New Moon strikes this weekend. Your anger deserves to be fully felt.

Welcome to a Libra New Moon week, Scorpios! This Sunday the 25th, the New Moon in Libra strikes, activating a new six-month chapter of expansion when it comes to our spiritual journey. Many Scorpios will feel more sensitive and self-aware than usual this week due to this upcoming lunation, so it’s best to be realistic about what you choose to take on. Mars’ presence in Gemini is encouraging you to ask for help when you need it, and to actually vocalize your needs instead of expecting others to read your mind. If you need a break from your usual work routine, or if you’re in need of more support in your personal life, you’re encouraged to use Monday’s Cancer Moon to vulnerably express yourself. Then by Tuesday, the Leo Moon will empower you to focus on what you really want to be doing. “Ask and you shall receive!”

This wknd, the Moon spends time in Gemini, encouraging us to think beyond ourselves and put ourselves in other people’s shoes. Instead of being immediately reactive to how people are acting or what they’re saying, adopt an emotionally-detached perspective. Mercury’s retrograde in Libra right now, and we’re encouraged to rewire our mindsets when it comes to relationships. Avoid making extreme judgments about who should be “in” or “out” of your life. Let people’s true intentions be revealed with time. On Sunday, the Moon enters Cancer, deepening your sensitivity and softening your approach to intimacy. Suddenly, you’ll feel more willing to penetrate the depths of your own psyche, as well as those of others. Perhaps watching a great movie while snuggling with a loved one (or pet) may be exactly what you need to tap into the nurturing frequencies you crave. Have a dreamy wknd, Scorpios!

Scorpio, the Moon in Taurus harmonizes with Venus in Virgo on Tuesday, and then conjoins with Uranus in Taurus. This energy helps us finetune our priorities, and also helps us take our relationships more seriously. Then on Wednesday, the Moon enters Gemini, further helping us investigate what’s going on in our partnerships, but this time more in the sense of financial or spiritual bonds. Are there people who owe you money, or vice versa? This retrograde season is an ideal time to circle back and either receive what you’re owed, and/or start paying back what you owe. Pluto, our planetary ruler, is spending one more month retrograde, as is Saturn. These next 30 days are about clearing up karmic debts and releasing psychological burdens that may be blocking future blessings. Be honest about what actions or boundaries are necessary for you to put in place at this point in your life.

Scorpio, now that we’ve made it past the emotionally-intense Pisces Full Moon and that the Moon’s shifted into the fiery sign of Aries, you’re probably going to feel charged up and activated. However, there are 6 planets and several asteroids that are retrograde right now, which may explain why you may not have as much motivation to immediately kick things into high gear. Instead of beating yourself up about a perceived lack of productivity, start normalizing these periods of rest and restoration, and focus on just two key tasks (not busy work, but actually meaningful work) that you’d like to complete this Monday and Tuesday. Just two. Dassit. Mars, our ruling planet, is in Gemini, so act more like a Gemini who gently orders their twin selves to get to work on key priorities. And voilà, you did it!
