Samhain Full Moon and Much More!

We entered Mercury Retrograde in Scorpio last week. Your intuitive ability is stronger in Scorpio, and you are capable of profound insights. This energy is aiding you to see the true nature of people and events going on. At times your mind may be dominated by strong emotions that can overrule your thinking. Make sure you are grounding and centering yourself before making decisions. Allow the emotions to flow through you to release them, then let it go. Mercury is an interpersonal planet so it is important to take time to listen to the deep messages being delivered in regards to your relationships. Use this time for introspection to review all aspects. This will help you diffuse eager, over reactions and reform them into proper action in right timing. While Mercury is still in Retro it moves into Libra (see below), along with several other transits this week, and the 2nd full moon of October! We are in for a ride!!


On October 22nd/23rd, the Sun moves into the stealthy sign of Scorpio, officially kickstarting Scorpio Season which lasts until November 21st. This marks a time of increased intensity in our personal relationships when we start to seek deeper and more intimate connections with others. It is always a potent zodiac season, however, this transit lacks the normal fierce and harsh significance since there will be no more squares to the stellium in Capricorn or oppositions to Mars in Aries. It has the potential to be a penetrating time of stellar connections with a feel-good quality. A time to bask in the Sun’s penetrating radiance.

Mercury joins the Sun in Scorpio, retrograding through the fixed water sign until October 27th, when it then moves back into Libra. On October 25th, the Sun and Mercury retrograde will conjunct at 2 degrees of Scorpio, increasing our intuition and illuminating something that we are meant to see. These two celestial bodies create a forensic force capable of revealing previously hidden areas in our important partnerships. This time of deep review is preparing us to make needed and necessary adjustments.

One of the main guiding attributes of Scorpio is the ability to be guided by what is desired. It is the sign ruled by Pluto, the Lord of the underworld, and all that is hidden in the unseen depths of our psyche. Scorpio is an archetype of profound intimacy and powerful emotional extremes. Shallowness is not favored by the inquisitive nature of this mysterious sign. In fact, the quest is always to discover the depths of what lies in the suppressed, secretive, and sometimes sultry areas of interest.

The sensual nature of a Scorpio persona is often mistaken for shyne
