Scorpio Season is here, astrology lovers, and in more ways than one. With the Sun, Mercury, Venus, Jupiter and the new moon transiting Scorpio this month, we're in for a lot of change and transformation. Scorpio is represented by the Death card in the Tarot, which promises the seed of a new beginning inside every end. And, November is the 11th month, the 11th card of the Zodiac being Justice. Scorpio moves in the service of justice and feels keenly the ripples of inequity and falsehood. Scorpio season is the perfect time for an indictment, for the landslide that followed the Harvey Weinstein allegations, for the coming together of women artists following the Knight Landesman resignation, for witch hunts against rapists and sexual predators.
Scorpio season is witching hour all month long, so there's no better way to enjoy it than by reading Anne Sexton poems to yourself while you burn a list of mistakes in the fireplace. Also, it's a good time to learn how to make soup because it's flu season, and you can't curse someone if you're sneezing.
In this season of transformation, of death and rebirth, what are the patterns you're willing to break so that healthy habits have space to form? There’s no one more tired of running on empty than you, Aries, and no one more likely to keep doing it anyway. Your optimism is contagious, but optimism without reflection is dangerous, and it depletes you. It makes you act in ways that you regret. Aren’t you done with whatever your old life was offering? Don’t you want to shed old skin and take your more powerful form? Be gentle when feelings of shame come up. Children learn shame first because they don’t have a wealth of language to frame their experience and are taught to map their experiences onto the judgments of their parents. Shame is ego’s long shadow. Your self-knowledge is wider now and more nuanced. You are the strength behind so many people, but it's time to be your own strength. Fall back in love with yourself in the truest way you can imagine. I’m not talking new outfits or strenuous workouts either; I’m talking inner work. You’ve got to do it. Otherwise, you leave yourself open to manipulation and self-destruction. Put time into yourself, and give yourself time. Don’t put yourself off, Aries, you’re the realest thing you’ve got, and everything that comes to you and everything you hold is only as nourishing and strong as you are.
