Traditionally, Scorpio season is known for drawing out our shadow sides, and, this year, the season brings major changes for all of us.
Venus stationed retrograde in the sign of Scorpio on October 5, and there she will remain until she moves into her home sign of Libra on October 31. While retrograde in Scorpio, Venus will have all of us re-evaluating our partnerships, money, and self expression, while pushing us to self-reflect and invite a deeper sense of intimacy into our lives.
Mercury is also moving through Scorpio this month, nudging us to be far more exclusive about with whom we share our thoughts and how we share moments. Also, the full and new moons that occur during Scorpio season will trigger deeper waves of understanding and help us connect with what the universe is prepping and priming us to build and create.
Let’s look to the Tarot to get a deeper understanding of what is in store for you. These tarotscopes can be read for your sun, moon, and rising signs.
