October 23 - November 22

SMscope March 23, 2023

Scorpios, we’re about to experience one of the most epic astrological transits of our lifetime — in fact, the last time this transit occurred was 1778 – 1798. Pluto, our planetary ruler, is entering the Air sign of Aquarius after a 14-year stay in Capricorn. As Scorpios, Aquarius energy tends to throw us out of our comfort zones, and that’s exactly what Pluto’s transit is here to do. We are being asked to release our attachments to familiarity and get curious about adopting new lifestyles, environments, relationships, and perspectives. This will initially be easier said than done, because both Scorpio and Aquarius are stubborn and fixed signs who tend to be resistant to change. But if you dare to trust the unknown, the unknown will befriend you and pleasantly surprise you beyond belief. “Leap and the net will appear.”

Scorpio’s March 2023 Forecast

Key themes: creative self-expression, friendships and communities, your values and the causes you stand up for, balance between your personal needs and your partnerships, cultivating healthier work and wellness routines

Dear Scorpio, the month of March brings focus to your health, pleasure, work, creativity, daily routines and romance. Open up to finding inspiration from unexpected sources. Embrace new ideas and try out different approaches to your work. This can lead to exciting breakthroughs and a renewed sense of passion for your craft.

As Mercury enters Pisces on the 2nd in your area of creative self-expression, allow yourself to indulge in the pleasures of life. Your creative and sensual desires will be awakened. Mercury will be here until the 19th, so take this time to explore new art forms, try new foods, enjoy your favorite pastimes, flirt a little (or a lot), allow yourself to let loose and have some fun, hang out with the children in your life.

As the Full Moon arrives at the sign of Virgo at 7:40 am EST on the 7th, it invites you to take a closer look at your place within your networks and communities. If there has been distance between you and certain connections, now may be the right time to pick up the conversation again. Trust the synchronicities that come up. This is a time to focus on strengthening your bonds and building new relationships that are grounded in shared values and interests. You may find that certain people or groups resonate with you more strongly now, and it’s important to pay attention to this.

As Saturn sets up camp in Pisces for the next two and a half years in your area of children, creativity, and love affairs, you are being called to take an active role in your own joy. It’s a call to prioritize your happiness and to create a firm, healthy and loving structure for your artistry. Don’t be afraid to take risks and to explore new avenues of creativity, love, and pleasure. This is no time to just endure the circumstances, it’s time to trust in your own instincts and set your own terms.

On the 12th, Jupiter will join Chiron in the sign of Aries in your area of wellbeing, rituals, and work and health routines. This comes as a reminder that you have the power within you to heal any wounds and overcome any obstacles in your path. If ever you feel lost, remember this.

When Venus enters Taurus on the 16th in your area of commitment and partnerships, you’ll feel a strong pull towards forming lasting connections or deepening the ones you already have. This is a time for surrendering to interconnection and trusting in the power of relationships. Respect your own limits and listen to your energy levels. Venus will be here until April 11th, reminding you that rest and self-care is essential, this requires your devotion too. Take good care of yourself as you navigate the deep waters of sharing yourself with another.

Mercury enters Aries on the 19th, followed by the beginning of Aries Season on the 20th and the New Moon (also in Aries) on the 21st, all of this in your area of work and wellness, making this Season a time to invest in your well-being. How do you want to go about rebooting your routines so you can bring more focus to the tasks that rekindle your flame? How can you turn chores into a way to show yourself kindness, love and care? You may feel compelled to renew your commitments to work projects as well. As you do so, pay attention to the more complicated issues that may arise. Honor the information this moment surfaces for you.

Starting on the 23rd, and extending until June 11th, Pluto will be giving us a taste of its new chapter in the sign of Aquarius. For you, this great generational transit will be about home, family, ancestry, and emotional stability. You’ll be experiencing intense evolution in these areas of your life for the coming twenty years. You may undergo radical rebirths, releasing past trauma that has haunted you for far too long now. Embrace the changes and trust the process. You will become stronger and more resilient through it.

The month begins to come to a close with Mars entering Cancer on the 25th. With this surge of martial energy in your area of adventure and philosophical pursuits, you’re being urged to take a break from your routine and to carve out space for the good things in life. Indulge in everyday pleasures instead of letting them pass you by. During this transit that extends up to May 20th, no more procrastinating your enjoyment. Say yes to invitations even if that means going to bed later than you’re used to, or go on that vacation you’ve been postponing.

Overall, the energy of the month is inviting you to honor your potential for balance and growth. The more you take care of yourself and are open to new experiences, the more you create a fulfilling and harmonious life for yourself.

About Scorpio

Element: Water

Mode: Fixed

Ruling Planets: Mars, the Planet of Action and Pluto, Planet of Transformation

Where Youll Find Them: Pondering the meaning of life, looking for an all black outfit, pursuing their passion

What They Avoid: Wishy-washy people, large crowds of people, people in general

Scorpio, the eighth sign of the zodiac, is the most misunderstood. When people hear Scorpio, they most often think of sex and death. Everything about Scorpio is a mystery, and this has led to people creating myths about Scorpio some based in fact, and others on pure fantasy. The truth is, Scorpio is a profoundly intuitive and spiritual Water sign with a stubborn streak and a deadly stinger. But contrary to popular belief, Scorpio doesnt just go around stinging just anyone. They know their venom is precious, and they arent reactive to every single situation. Scorpio will wait for the perfect time to strike if they decide to strike at all. You never know what Scorpios thinking.

Professionally, Scorpios succeed at any career that lets them call the shots from behind-the-scenes, such as being a private detective or investigator. They also thrive in the limelight, which is why many Scorpios like Drake become the voice of their generation. Everything about Scorpio is extreme and intense they dont do things in half-measures. Scorpios would ideally feel wildly passionate about their job, or else they may easily become complacent and irritated. Passion is at the core of who Scorpio is. Their life-long mission is to always keep the passion alive, in all realms of life. 

Socially, Scorpio are extremely cautious and guarded. They can count their true friends on one hand, and they’d rather have a small amount of true OG supporters rather than a large amount of frenemies. Scorpio is very slow to trust, but if youve earned their trust, theyre the ultimate ride or die. Having a Scorpio on your side is the best feeling in the world, because they make you feel protected and powerful. But if you cross a Scorpio, your life completely turns upside down. Youll regret ever hurting them.

Multiply the way a Scorpio is as a friend by 10 million and you may get a clue of who they are as lovers. They invest their all into relationships, which is why their standards are so high. But Scorpios also have trust issues, and can be extremely possessive and jealous in relationships. They love so deeply, and they want to feel that the loyalty and fidelity is reciprocated, or else they may build a wall around their heart that causes them to be extremely suspicious and even manipulative.

When a Scorpio trusts their lover, they can merge with them on a deeply soulful, erotic, magical level. That is the side of Scorpio thats rarely seen the vulnerable, transparent, radiant side that comes out when they feel emotionally safe. Loving a Scorpio isnt by any means easy, but it’s worth it.
