On October 23rd, 2017 at 1:27 am, the Sun entered the sign of Scorpio and Scorpio Season officially began!
Scorpio energy is intense, piercing, passionate, sensual and secretive and has no time for playing games. Those born under this sign take on those characteristics but regardless of what sign you are born under, you too will feel this energy.
Scorpio is the second water sign (the others being Cancer and Pisces) and is considered to be a “fixed” sign. Water signs represent emotions. Fixed signs are associated with stability, firmness, and security. Like the other fixed signs Taurus, Leo, and Aquarius, Scorpio energy is not afraid to dominate in order to maintain, change, or stabilize, however, Scorpio feels most at home in the realm of understanding emotion.
Scorpio energy enjoys revealing what is hidden; uncovering the real no matter how good, bad, or ugly. It also is associated with death and rebirth as it is ruled by the planet Pluto and governs the 8th house in Astrology. Its energy forces us to face the parts of us that need to die in order to be reborn anew; to stand bravely in front of our demons, brutally honest and emotionally naked. Scorpio reminds us that failing to face said demons will only keep us slaves to them.
Until November 21st, 2017 we will be under the influence of energy so potent and transformative that we won’t emerge without having changed in some way. For this reason, it’s important to note how different the energy has been since Scorpio Season began. We just left the balanced and somewhat indecisive season of Libra where we felt comfortable avoiding conflict and not choosing sides. Scorpio energy encourages extremes and forces us out of a middle-of-the-road approach to our lives.
Scorpio Season is a perfect time to adopt an air of mystique and suspense as people will be more inclined to want to uncover the mystery hiding beneath. There’s a collective sense of finding enjoyment in snatching the mask off and when done with an air of lightheartedness, plenty of fun can be found. Just make sure you’re not too mysterious or you will be thought of as fake and off-putting and more than likely drug for filth because of it.
Scorpio has quite a sexy reputation since it rules the reproductive organs. Its energy is definitely very sexual, however during Scorpio Season, it isn’t the best of ideas to engage in meaningless, random sex. Scorpio energy is better spent on sexual encounters that unite the body as well as the mind and soul of you and a lover. Not to mention, shadow aspects of Scorpio energy are jealousy and possessiveness. Be mindful of who you intermingle with sexually given the energetic atmosphere could encourage people to be more serious about you than you are about them. The same is true in reverse, too, so be careful who you fixate upon.
Obsession is another thing we are liable to get carried away with during Scorpio Season. as Scorpio energy is very focused and eagle-eyed. For this reason, it is wise to put your focus on something productive and positive. Avoid the urge to spy or lurk on your crush on social media or in person. Since Scorpio energy can lend stamina to obsession, you have to be very careful about what and who you obsess about. If your focus shines upon an activity or person who will better you in the long-run, your energy will be better directed.
When used positively, the energy of Scorpio Season is a wonderful catalyst for change, growth, and fun. As with any season, it is best to be aware of the energy at play so that it can be used constructively. What Scorpio traits do you love or hate? Let us know in the comments.
