Welcome to the season of Scorpio. To clarify, we all feel the energy of Scorpio working in our lives during this period, no matter what month we were born.
When the sun is in your sign of Scorpio, you may find the themes that come up are heightened. This guide is to help you and the other signs stay centred and connected with your inner self by bringing your awareness to what may come up for you. You can also use this guide to understand and support the Scorpio friend in your life.
This month is ruled by Mars, Pluto and the water element, so we will benefit from leaning into more of our shadow side and doing the deeper energy work we may have been avoiding. When it comes to change and transformation, it is better to initiate the transition by paying attention to your current needs and desires, than having it sneak up on you. We don’t need to control everything but we can be open to flowing with what needs to shift.
For those of us who are earth, fire, and air signs, we are being asked to move deeper into the shadows of our inner selves which comes more naturally to the water sign. This may look like widening the social circle with more meaningful connections or taking action on something only you know deep down you want.
This powerful track by Aurora ‘The Seed’ has the feels for this season.
Read on as I share some ways you can navigate the deeper waters of the energy of Scorpio.
