SMscope March 17 – 19, 2023

Scorpio, the Moon’s in Aquarius this wknd, activating your sector of roots, family, and the past. This is helping you cultivate a spirit of healthy detachment from the drama, expectations, past hurts, misunderstandings, judgments and grievances from your past. This doesn’t mean you’ll forgive and forget — but it does mean you’re ready to focus on where you are in life right now, and what you have capacity to create. The Aquarius Moon also helps you better accept your eccentricities and weirdness. If you’ve held back a key part of who you are out of fear of being misunderstood, you may be pleasantly surprised by what happens when you show the world a part of yourself you usually keep hidden. Now that Venus, the Planet of Love and Magnetism, is in our opposite sign of Taurus, we’re feeling more in tune with who we are and what we want — make the most of this.

Scorpio’s February 2023 Forecast

Key themes: work on your aspirations and long-term goals, nurturing conversations, planting new seeds within your creative projects, focus on self-care and your own needs.

Dear Scorpio, the month of February opens up with Ceres, the asteroid of motherly nurture, going retrograde in Libra on the 3rd. In your area of introspection, this is an invitation to take a closer look at the role your subconscious plays within your relationships and to work on not letting your past hurts affect your current connections with others.

The Full Moon in the passionate sign of Leo will happen on the 5th, at 1:28 pm EST, in your area of professional pursuits. This is a good time to ask yourself: How do I want to be perceived by others? What are my goals and aspirations? What are my talents and accomplishments and how can I let them shine? Tap into your self-esteem and your confidence, and reflect on how you want to present yourself to the world. Take a hard look at any limiting beliefs you may have about yourself and dare to challenge them.

Vesta, the asteroid of devotion and commitment, begins a new run around the zodiac on the 7th as it moves into Aries, inviting you to bring more devotion into your day-to-day life and helping you to get your life in order, especially at work and in your health regimens.

On the 11th, Mercury —the Messenger— moves into your area of home and family life, in the sign of Aquarius. This Mercury will encourage you to think outside of the box and to be open to new approaches and perspectives when it comes to your home and your relationship to your family. Communication with family will be especially important during this time, and you may learn valuable lessons from loved ones.

Pallas, the asteroid of wisdom and strategic thinking, will enter your area of higher learning in the sign of Cancer on the 16th. This will be a very inquisitive time for you. As you open up to the world and expand your horizons, also make space to delve deeper into your inner self. You may discover new truths and gain a better understanding of your place in the world.

On the 18th, the Sun’s exit from Aquarius will give way to Pisces Season, followed by the New Moon also in the dreamy sign of Pisces, on the 20th at 2:06 am EST, activating your area of creative self-expression. Ask yourself: What are my deepest desires and how do I want to bring them to fruition? How can I better express myself and my emotions through my creative pursuits? How can I use my talents and my passion to make a positive impact on the world around me? Remember, the New Moon is a time of new beginnings, take this moment to set intentions and goals for your creative expression. The universe is aligning to support you in manifesting your deepest desires. Trust the journey. This is an opportunity for growth and self-discovery. Embrace it with open arms and let your passions lead the way.

Also on the 20th, Venus starts a new cycle around the zodiac as she comes out of Pisces and moves into Aries, bringing a harmonious balance between your daily routines and your one-on-one relationships. This is a time to focus on self-care and improving your physical and emotional well-being. Surround yourself with supportive people that allow space for you to prioritize your own needs. This is a sweet time that can bring positivity and stability to your daily routine. Embrace the love and beauty in the small moments of life.

About Scorpio

Element: Water

Mode: Fixed

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.
