Ahh, Scorpio Season. We meet again.
There’s just something about this time of the year: the nights are long and dark, the spookiness of Halloween sets in, we’re watching scary movies on repeat. As we move out of the light-hearted, harmonious energy of Libra season on October 23, we will start to feel the shift into something a little darker and more intense: the season of the Scorpion.
It’s no secret that Scorpio has a bit of a reputation in astrology.
As a fixed water sign, Scorpios are known for being mysterious, emotional, passionate and super intense. Co-ruled by Mars and Pluto, this Zodiac sign is as complicated and deep as they come. With the influence of Mars, Scorpio has a fiery instinct and emotional will – and with Pluto, the planet of transformation and rebirth, Scorpio has a drive to go deep into the subconscious and release.
As the only fixed water sign, Scorpio has a certain kind of steady intensity that the other Water signs don’t have. Fixed signs are stabilizing signs – they have an ability to root in and blossom. They are steady and sustaining with a discipline, fixed in their purpose and will stop at nothing to see it through.
For Scorpio, this is expressed through deep emotional exploration. Scorpios have a fearless drive and passion for understanding their own inner world. In this way, they are often described as the “boiling hot” Water sign. You know the expression “still waters run deep”? That is Scorpio energy.
Because they’re able to go so deep into their own subconscious, Scorpios have no time for shallow interests or superficial interactions. They are known as the psychologists and investigators of the Zodiac.
We’ll all feel the collective shift from the easy-breezy energy of Libra season into the deep, dark waters of Scorpio season. It’s the perfect time to harness the archetypes of Scorpio – passion, power, emotional regeneration and deep connection.
As the nights get longer and darker, as the trees begin to shed their leaves and prepare for the next cycle of their life – you will begin to sense the shift into this season of transformation and rebirth.
Here are 3 tips to help you embrace the powerful energy of Scorpio Season
1. Develop your emotional intuition.
Throughout the next month, you’ll feel more in tune with the emotions and instincts that usually operate below the surface. This is the perfect time to observe your thoughts and emotional responses. In true Scorpio fashion, investigate the inner workings of your psyche. What makes you tick?
Meditation, journaling and shadow work are all great ways to explore your emotions throughout this zodiacal season.
2. Be fearless.
If there is one thing Scorpios are known for, it’s their fearless dedication and drive. They are strong-willed and persistent, and they are not afraid of going after what they want. This Scorpio season, try to channel that ferocious drive. Ask for what you want. Do the thing you’re scared of. Have a difficult conversation. Go to the dark places without fear.
3. Get intimate with your closest relationships.
Scorpio is the sign of intimacy (yes, there’s a reason they’ve got a reputation for being the most sexual sign in the Zodiac). As we move out of Libra season into the long nights of November, you’ll start to feel the shift. While Libra is the master of extroverted charm, Scorpio craves deep, soul-bonding connection.
This is the perfect time to channel the passion of Scorpio season into your most intimate relationships. Have a deep secret you’ve been wanting to share? Open up to one of your closest friends without fear. Feeling the sexual intensity of this month? Explore new kinds of intimacy with your partner.
As you approach this powerful zodiacal season, try to think of ways that you can fearlessly investigate your own inner world – and how you can share this intimate place with someone you love.
