We’ve got a lot of Scorpio going on for the remainder of the year, and it’s active now. Mercury in Scorpio begins October 17 and goes to November 5. Sun arrives at the Scorpio party on October 22 until November 22. On November 7, Venus will enter Scorpio until December 1.
Mars enters Scorpio from December 9 to January 26 and then we have Jupiter in Scorpio until November 2018.
All of this means it’s a really great time to be a Scorpio. Scorpio is going to have an excellent end to their year, and start to 2018, but so can you! All of this energy is going to bring out the truth about who you are, and the transformations are going to be powerful. Scorpio powerful. It’s not as scary as it sounds.
With the Sun shining on you and Mercury giving you the courage to say your truth, this could be the most empowering part of your year, maybe even your life! Scorpio goes big or goes home. How they do that is by tapping into those kernels of truth within, and using them.
Are you ready to go big or go home? It could be your game changer.
What the Sun in Scorpio does…Know Your Truth.
In the game of Survivor, fire represents life. The Sun represents life, and this big ball of fire also represents your sense of self. Because the Sun is shining, Sun themes center around how the world sees you, so when we say Sun in Scorpio, we are talking about the themes of Scorpio that the world sees.
Scorpio is the fixed sign of the water signs. Both fixed signs and water signs have two different themes. Fixed signs are stubborn, very structured to a fault sometimes, they are confident in their truth. The upside is a good payoff for that, as they are as loyal as the day is long.
The friends in your circle whom you’ve known your whole life are probably fixed signs. The downside, Scorpio shadow side looks a little bit like Single White Female.
Here’s the kicker. Scorpio only *goes there* when confronted with something that isn’t the truth. If you are real with a Scorpio, they don’t care what the truth is. Scorpio does not judge, unless or until you lie to them. When that happens, Scorpio is very easily offended, and it is that insult that will unleash the Single White Female with the big stinger.
It’s just about the truth. Just rip that band aid off and Scorpio can deal. When you do that in your own life as well, it’s empowering and liberating at the same time. The Sun in Scorpio can help you channel this. The Sun is all about shining the light on who you really are as a person.
Who do you really want to be? Hint: There’s no wrong answer. It’s YOUR life. The truth of who YOU are is YOUR choice!
The Eighth House—The Loop of Regeneration
The biggest reason that Scorpio lives so close to the truth, is because they rule the eighth house. Now there are a lot of things the eighth house is known for, such as sexual prowess, the taboo, and the depths of intimacy. Scorpio is known for that too, but only to the select few they invite into that fold. Many astrologers stop there when analyzing the eighth house.
The eighth house is a very karmic house, you can see it in the shape of the number, an upright infinity symbol “8”. The eighth house is all about transformations, but transformations that keep the one line that forms its number continuously and never-ending. This is also an equal opportunity house.
Life is about balance, life and death, rebirth and mortality, out with the old and in with the new, all in one fluid motion.
This house can also deal with finances, and involves the give and take of investments, mortgages, savings, bill paying, or any act that involves a flow between two people of money. The bigger picture in the eighth house is this constant flow of rebirth and regeneration, and transformation.
The message is, if something is no longer working, let it go, keep on swimming, and find that kernel of rebirth you crave. The ride on this continuous loop is much easier when you are being honest about who you are, what you want, and who you want to be there with. Knowing your truth and speaking it are two different things, though.
What Mercury in Scorpio does…Speak Your Truth.
One thing Scorpio gets a bad rap for is being bluntly truthful, more often than some people think is appropriate. Think Sheldon Cooper from The Big Bang Theory. If he was a real person with a real natal chart, it would probably indicate Mercury in Scorpio.
The facts are the facts are the facts with people with Mercury in Scorpio and when they see something that isn’t true or doesn’t jive with that intuitive “knowing” of facts, they say so. It’s not actually blunt. It’s just someone speaking their truth the Mercury in Scorpio way.
Scorpio gets a bad reputation over this and is sometimes perceived as callous and mean. The truth about Scorpio could not be further from that. Scorpio has one of the biggest hearts, and if they sound “mean” it is because they are coming from this truth center, and their truth isn’t being embraced.
THEN, Scorpio can get mean – but don’t focus on that.
It was former President Theodore Roosevelt who said, “In the long run, the most unpleasant truth is a safer companion than a pleasant falsehood.” President Roosevelt had Mercury in Scorpio in his natal chart. With both Sun and Mercury in the fixed sign of Scorpio, you will find more safety and empowerment in the truth than you will in anything else.
That’s why there is no better time of the year for the real you to come out. Know it, speak it, live it. Discover the truth about yourself. Then, set it free. Who do you really want to be?
