Scorpio season is here and it’s time to step into the dark half of the year. This is definitely the most witchy time of year as we embrace the dying light and darkness, but it can also be a time for great personal transformation. Whether you do that with ritual magick or just making some changes to your daily routing, the period between October 23rd and November 22nd is a great time for looking into the darker corners of your life and seeking ways to make some changes.
Along with your own personal outlook for the Scorpio month ahead, keep a few of these things in mind:
There is a full moon in Taurus tomorrow, which brings a sense of grounding and structure. This can be really needed when getting into the depths of Scorpio season, so you may find that releasing things that get in the way of your sense of focus ideal for this full moon.
Venus is retrograde until Nov 16th; challenges with relationships will be starting to ease up but the darker aspects of Scorpio could bring up more issues like secrets and poor communication if you’re already dealing with that.
Uranus is retrograde until Jan 6th; feeling stuck in your ways is likely to hold you back in some parts of your life and relationships through the rest of year so keep that in mind this month.
Neptune is retrograde until Nov 24th; if you’ve been feeling like your fantasy world and dreamy visions of your life and your future have been shattered recently, you will find that as this retrograde come to an end that it all makes sense…and Scorpio can help you sort through the wreckage.
Mercury will be going retrograde Nov 16th through Dec 6th, so be prepared when it comes to possible issues with travel, communication, and technology. Plan ahead, especially if your Scorpion Sun visits you with a call to travel.

Look at each of these places you spend money right now as ask the simple question “How does this make my life better?” That will tell you all you need to know.

You’re feeling more independent and confident in where you’re heading and you’re ready to change your outside to match your inside. Use some of that birthday money for a good pair of shoes and a spa day…you deserve it!
Sagittarius – As the Scorpio Sun moves through your 12th House of Endings and the Subconscious you are going to naturally feel a pull to retreat, go inward, and deal with your issues of emotional and spiritual baggage all on your own.

Aquarius – Scorpio Sun shines light on your Career and Purpose in the 10th House this month and you fully embrace the idea of shifting gears in your career.
