Key themes: embracing your inner child, rest and renewal, vulnerability, finances, honing your craft, recognizing and uplifting your worth, honoring your magic and your healing power

Dear Scorpio, we may all still be feeling a bit jet lagged from the eclipse season. What hunger have you been left with when it comes to connection and partnership? You know that you don’t want to get into just any relationship in order to not feel alone. So, remember to listen carefully to what your body, your mind and your intuition are trying to tell you when it comes to going into a deeper commitment.

November arrives with Saturn shifting to go direct on the 4th in the ethereal sign of Pisces. This is happening in your area of creative self-expression, where for the past months you’ve been looking into your need to commit to a life of more enjoyment, where being goofy is embraced, where your inner child can feel more at ease, and where leisure time isn’t frowned upon. You know that discipline and fun don’t have to live in separate worlds. You know that when you make space to merge these two aspects of life you begin to cultivate a life with less burnout.

On the 8th, Venus, the Planet of Love and Beauty, will leave Virgo to enter its home sign of Libra, where it will be until December 4th. Happening in the deepest area of your chart, you’re being invited to spend more time in the dark, renewing your energy, connecting with your inner world, allowing what needs to go to die off. Even at work, if you can find at least one minute to pause, close your eyes and breathe deep, it will really help you to decompress. Don’t rush into a new partnership during this time. It’s a time to let go of a lot of relationship baggage so you can begin to embrace a new you once Venus enters your sign.

On the 10th, Mercury, the Planet of Communication and Exchange, will enter the wisdom-seeking sign of Sag, where it will be until December 1st. As this happens in the area of your chart that rules your physical world and your sense of self worth, move towards the things that help ground you. Do more of whatever calms your nervous system, and more of what enhances your ability to feel secure within your body and your psyche. This is always a good time to check in on your finances as your mind will be sharper when it comes to bringing more in, and you’ll most likely be wiser when it comes to distributing what you’ve got.

The New Moon in your sign is happening on the 13th, exact at 4:27 am EST, emphasizing the energy you’ve been swimming in since the Sun began to shine on your journey of self-discovery on October 23rd. You know the courage it takes to renew, to transform, to say goodbye to what has held you together until now, to shed your skin and to vulnerably become anew. Be with this process, go as deep as you need to, use your magic to cast spells that help rid yourself of the fear that wants to get in the way.

On the 22nd, we move into Sag Season, as the Sun comes out of your sign and shifts into the sign of the Centaur, and Mars follows its lead on the 24th, remaining in the sign of Sag until January 4th. This happens in the area of your life that has to do with your sustenance and your values. Your resources and your connection to pleasure will be highlighted. This is a call for action. It’s time to believe in your ability to sustain yourself and the ones that depend on you abundantly. Dare to make the transformations that you know are necessary for this to happen, even if it may bring some initial discomfort. Trust that it’ll be worth it in the long run.

The Full Moon in Gemini is happening on the 27th, exact at 4:16 am EST, in your area of intimacy, collaborations and shared resources. This is an invitation to tap into the strength that’s available in vulnerability. Remember that you are a master at this. Remember that you are stronger than you give yourself credit for, it’s just that yours isn’t a brute force. Your strength is energetic, it resides in the realm of magnetism. It’s deep, and it knows how to wait as long as necessary for the exact right moment. It’s about deep transformative healing. Remember that there’s also great strength in allowing yourself to be held and to be helped.

I’ll leave you with a poem from Nayyirah Waheed that says: “your heart is the softest place on earth. take care of it.”
