Scorpio Season October 23rd - November 21st
Symbol: The Scorpion
Planetary Ruler: Mars
We’re swimming in the deep end this Scorpio season. Don’t be surprised if you and everyone you love are drowning in major emotional waters. But enough with the metaphors. Let me speak to you clearly and honestly. This period may be challenging. You may feel agitated, and things may sometimes feel out of control. I’m not speaking of every single Scorpio season, just this one. So be gentle with yourself.
In a broad sense Scorpio is the sign that encourages us to search for truth and depth within ourselves and others. It’s not interested in pleasantries for the sake of pointless conversation. Showing up as the most authentic version of yourself may require a regeneration process. Channel the power of Scorpio into acceptance of all that makes you uncomfortable. Don’t be afraid. Explore this with holidays like Samhain and Día de los Muertos/Day of the Dead.
And remember, Scorpios can hold grudges. Think twice before cutting someone out of your life or setting up your long-game strategy for the ultimate slow-burn revenge. Give yourself time to make these decisions once you’ve cooled down.

Important Dates for Scorpio Season: October 23rd - November 21st
Full Moon/Lunar Eclipse in Taurus October 28th
The powerful Blood Moon is the final eclipse on the Scorpio/Taurus axis. A couple of things about eclipse season:
They are thought to be tied to fate and can accelerate events on a micro and macro scale during these times. We have these eclipses 4-6 times yearly, so don’t let that scare you. But also…
The energy during eclipse season is chaotic and unpredictable. Because of the energetic instability, there are better times for manifestation practices.
Since we’re wrapping up this series, take a look back from November 2021 to the present. What have been the themes playing out in your life? Note any significant changes. Eclipse energy lasts up to 6 months after, so expect to feel the final chapter of this story conclude and overlap with the beginning of the Aries/Libra eclipse series. Like all endings transition into beginnings, every eclipse series acts as a cleansing force, washing away the old and bringing in the new.
Samhain (pronounced sah win) is a Pagan holiday that celebrates the end of summer and the beginning of harvest. They would celebrate with bonfires and dress up in costume to ward off ghosts. It later morphed into what we know as Halloween, where people carve pumpkins into jack-o’lanterns, dress in fun or scary costumes, and little kids trick or treat for candy.
October 31st is also known as the day the veil between the spirit world and our world is thin. We can use this liminal space to connect with deceased loved ones through altars and offerings or look through our old photos. Whatever brings you connection.
11/01 + 11/02 Día de los Muertos/Day of the Dead
Día de los Muertos/Day of the Dead is a time to remember, celebrate, and connect with our departed loved ones. This holiday is primarily celebrated in Mexico and other areas with strong cultural ties to Mexican heritage. People dress up in elaborate costumes, including skull face paintings, bright colors, and flowers. It’s a time of year to create ancestral altars and leave food offerings for those who have departed.
If you live in Tucson, Arizona consider attending the All Souls Procession. This tradition started in 1990 and has grown into a large two-mile procession that ends with a ceremonial burning of a giant urn.
New Moon in Scorpio November 13th
This New Moon has a crackling energy that can be exciting, bringing intensity and passion—key into the areas you want to create a dramatic change in and go. The manifestations from this moon can have some immediate payoffs if you channel this right.
