Month: October 2019
Venus entered Scorpio on October 8th, where it will remain until November 1st – bringing with it a fiery and burning passion that pulses within our veins.
In astrology, Venus is the planet that rules over all matters of love, truth, beauty, and sensuality. Your Venus placement in your natal chart is one of the more important placements, and can give you insight into how you love, and how you connect within and to relationships. Venus is also the planet of pleasure and concerns itself with all the pleasing activities and experiences in life.
Scorpio is one of the 12 zodiac signs in astrology, and it is known for its air of mystery, its magnetic draw towards the hidden and deeper truths of life, passionate romance, secrecy, and jealousy. Scorpio is an intense sign, and that intensity is palpable when the pleasure-seeking planet of Venus passes through this constellation.
Heightened Venusian Sensuality
If your first thought is that Venus in Scorpio may promote feelings of sensuality and sexuality, you were right.
It is a well-known fact that the sign of Scorpio is naturally sensual, as is the planet, Venus – when these two astrological elements come together to dance in a transient transit, the pulse of love, romance, and pleasure will be ignited. Fantasies are increased and should be indulged during this time. This is a great transit for exploring your sexuality in safe and healthy ways and learning to liberate yourself from any stigma that may be attached to the concept of a sexually active individual. Venus in Scorpio reminds us that sex is natural and a wonderful part of life, despite social norms or notions that might lead us to believe otherwise. Venus in Scorpio asks us to embrace that naturally occurring part of our spiritual beings.
But that doesn’t mean that single folks won’t have any fun – this can also be a great time to meet someone new. Romance is in the air, and it may open our collective hearts to the idea of falling in love. You’ll feel more drawn to the idea of meeting a new partner and exploring the beautiful and exciting process of new love. If you are already in a relationship, you can expect your feelings towards each other to deepen and intensify. This can obviously be a great gift in a long-term partnership, but these intense feelings can also lead to arguments or misunderstandings – especially when considering Scorpio’s role in this transit.

Scorpio Intensity Intensifies
Scorpios are associated with the deep sting of the scorpion’s tail. As a Water sign, the Scorpio may not initially appear to be ferocious or emotional, but once crossed, a Scorpio knows how to hold onto a grudge. So, you may feel more determined to win the fight than usual. Just remember, the ultimate goal is to find communication and compromise within a healthy relationship. If you find yourself feeling a bit testier during this transit, try to take a step back from the situation and remind yourself that these intense emotions are temporary.
Venus also rules over money, so this influence is very likely to affect our financial situations as well. Venus in Scorpio gives us the motivation and opportunity to get our financial situations organized and in order. This transit may be an excellent time to create a budget for yourself – you may even find help in the form of an app on your smartphone. While budgeting may not be fun, you’ll feel much more relaxed once you know that you’re on top of your finances.
Venus isn’t wholeheartedly dedicated to responsible actions however; as the pleasure-seeker of the zodiac, Venus likes to relax and have a good time. When combined with the inquisitive nature of the Scorpio energy, this influence may encourage you to spend hours diving into interesting books or journaling about the meaning of life.
In other words, you may feel introspective and rather philosophical. This can be beneficial for finding more direction in life; however, be careful not to get sucked into endless contemplation and relaxation – you will have to do some necessary work before it’s time to relax.
Overall, Venus in Scorpio can be a very passionate and exciting time of the year: as long as you can maintain patience amidst the intensity of emotion.
Embrace the deep feelings and sensuality that come along with this transit by planning a special date night or a fun outing with friends. And if you’re single, remember to keep your eyes and your heart open for potential partners – everyone’s heart will be ready to receive passion under this influence.

Air sign Libras are our fair-minded, everyone-should-get-along diplomats with hearts of gold and style to be envied. Libras are associated with the 7th House of Partnerships in the astrological birth chart, so it’s no surprise that their main focus in life seems to be centered around getting along and creating meaningful partnerships.
Looking for someone to make a great impression on your family? Look no further than charming Libra, who always knows what to say! Manners are of much importance to Libras as well, and they will go out of their way to not offend anyone, so even if you are having a side argument, they will know how to put on a polite performance and not embarrass you in front of anyone.
Libras want you to love them – and will sometimes go out of their way to make sure you do. These are definitely the people-pleasers of the zodiac! Libras are fabulous partners, and with enough patience, confidence and appreciation, anyone who finds themselves in a relationship with one of these charming and intelligent creatures will be satisfied indeed. Libras work best over time with more self-confident partners who aren’t prone to jealousy – they know their flirtatious Libra is just having some fun – and are ultimately happiest at home with them.
As are steady Earth sign Taurus, love and harmony-seeking planet Venus rules over our lovely Libras. Creature comforts and luxury are desirable to the sign of the scales, so lavish gifts, pampering and dinners out will go a long way into winning their hearts.Because Libras can always see many outcomes, it can be natural for them to remain optimistic, even in the face of negativity.
Their Cardinal sign traits may also help here – they like to take action, to start something, to initiate. This combined with their desire to find harmony almost ensures they will be perpetual cheerleaders, but even they are allowed to have a bad day once in awhile. As their partner, it will be important to make sure you are taking as much notice of what’s going on with them as they are for you.
Let’s take a look at the unique characteristics of the sign of the scales!
- you are quite trusting and forgiving
- you are adaptable and flexible
- you are insightful and emotionally intelligent
- you are affectionate, and feel more secure when in a relationship
It’s hard to annoy a Libra – because they want to achieve an environment of peace and calm, they are more than willing to accept an apology if it’s heartfelt. This should not be taken advantage of though – they will eventually tire of people who prove they cannot be trusted. Part of Libra’s intoxicating charm is their ability to make you feel like you’re the only person in the room – and this is due to their innate ability to read the room and the people in it. Intellectual Libras have an uncanny way of knowing when things are, ‘off,’ and this can be both a positive and a negative if you’re in a relationship with them.
- you have a supremely hard time making up their minds
- you can be co-dependent
- you can come across as two-faced
- it’s easy for you to fall into – and out of – love
Libras want everyone to get along – so when faced with too many choices, they want to be sure to carefully consider every possible outcome. This can make Libras seem wishy-washy or non-committal, but they may just need a little more time than everyone else. Also due to their ability to consider many views and be non-offensive, they may tell you something slightly different than you heard it from someone else. In reality, they are likely just not taking sides, but on the negative, they can seem like they are playing both ends against the table. At their worst and most secure, Libras will accept a flawed partnership, rather than be alone.

Zodiac Signs Most Compatible with Libra
Gemini, Leo, Sagittarius, Aquarius
Libras need room to think, to observe and to decide what’s right and wrong for them. Fellow Air signs Gemini and Aquarius will understand and support this, and they will both provide different perspectives for their Libra partner to consider. Mutable Geminis are the most free-thinking and Fixed sign Aquarius’ are more solid in their process. Fun-loving Fire signs Leo and Sagittarius are up for a good time and love to entertain as much as you do, Libra!
Sagittarius tends to see the world through a lens of optimism, and will keep your spirits up, while encouraging their Libras to explore their open-minded side, especially in the bedroom! Leos are creative and generous, and while you could just end up in a never ending compliment contest, the capacity to admire and hold each other in high regard will make this a very strong bond indeed.

Zodiac Signs least compatible with Libra
Cancer, Virgo, Aries, Capricorn
Libras should make sure they aren’t run over by a stronger-willed partner who tries to rush them into a decision they will live to regret – or at least to question if they did the right thing without having a chance to think it all through. Fellow Cardinal signs Aries, Cancer and Capricorn may become competitive with Libra, wanting to lead the way themselves and getting frustrated when Libra doesn’t immediately jump into the boat.
Disciplined Capricorn and Virgo may tire of Libras ‘wishy-washy’ ways and Libra may find it hard to connect with the more stoic Earth signs, who seem less inclined to care about the beauty in the world and more on tradition, routine and hard work. Water sign Cancer’s moodiness, sometime passive-aggression and tendency to be jealous will not float well with the more free-spirited Libra.
Air signs are dreamy and thoughtful – so other zodiac signs who need a faster answer from Libra, or who need decisions and ideas to be based on rationality and logic will not necessarily be a good match here. on the one hand, an ‘opposing’ love match could prove challenging, but you could also learn a lot from each other here, if you both have the patience and compromise to stick it out.
Libra Men in Love
- Good listeners
- Need a lot of attention
When his attention is on you, he’s the most charming and romantic guy around. When it’s not though, you may wonder where it is. Libra men are very flirtatious and can talk their way into – or out of – anything. Once you have established some ground rules and make it clear you want to keep it one to one though, they can be highly loyal partners. A Libra man will be a sexy and charismatic partner, and he will pay attention to your needs, as long as you don’t take him for granted!
Libra men are chatterboxes – let them talk, and you will be on the road to winning their hearts. Good food and drink, a sultry atmosphere and soothing music will also speak to this romantic at heart – pleasure comes in many forms – and Libras are well known to indulge in many of them! Libra men and women may struggle with the balance between wanting to meet new people to test their charms, and the side of them that deeply desires to make a meaningful and romantic connection.
Libra Women in Love
- Demonstrate integrity
Because of their willingness to go along and not rock the boat, spending time drawing out their deeper desires may take some time, and Libra women may need to be coaxed out of worrying about being a ray of sunshine, and into sharing who they really are under their lovely exterior.
While all Libras have an eye for detail and need to keep a pleasant and beautiful home, the Libra women will take an especially keen interest in this area, aligning deeply with her connection to sensual Venus. This doesn’t mean they like to do chores! Show them you appreciate their efforts by not destroying their hard work once in a while.
Appearances are ultra important to all Librans, and Libra women in love are forces to be reckoned with. Well-spoken, well put together and set to charm all who meet them, it can be difficult to resist their attention once it’s set on you. Here is the person who can change the energy of the room when they enter it – and they have a particular way of making you feel like the most important person in the room. They can also be fierce, defending anyone – or anything – if they feel someone has been wronged.
When it comes to zodiac love compatibility, bear in mind, not looking good on paper doesn′t mean a match won′t work out! When looking at the elements, Fire and Air signs tend to be more extroverted, while Earth and Water signs are more introverted. This can be very helpful in considering how people will get along in any kind of relationship, but it isn′t restrictive!
There are many more layers to astrology to consider, including the rest of someone′s primal triad – their Moon sign and Rising sign. Having a birth chart done for both of you could definitely provide more insight into your compatibility!
The 7th house rules partnerships and will tell you how you communicate and feel about being in a relationship. For example, if you have Taurus in your 7th house, you′ll need a partner who will be sensual and affectionate, while low on the drama and high on the faithfulness scale. You can try out Astrology Answers′ free love compatibility test here to get an initial idea of where you sit.

If you have been around the Sun for a few decades, chances are, you’ve had some family drama.
It’s normal to go through difficult things within your family and these challenges affect our emotions long term. Today we are going to work to free ourselves from the emotional energy we may be storing from past pain we have experienced in our family whether it’s conscious or unconscious.
You can start with this simple meditation to help heal your Heart chakra, which is where we store grief and sadness. Then you can use our other tips this week to continue your Heart chakra healing so your family drama will no longer hold you back from growth and deeply loving relationships.
If you’re new to the concept of a chakra, basically, it’s an energy center in your body that holds the emotions. The Heart chakra is one of seven main energy centers and is linked to our physical heart, lungs, and shoulders. Pain from family drama can actually cause health complications with our lungs, immune system, and heart. Using the breathing technique and visualization in this meditation, you will be able to start to release old stuck energy and feel a renewed sense of excitement for the future. Chakra healing is a life-long journey, but the more you practice it, the more you will experience the benefits and find relief from lower vibrations.
Let’s be real, family drama can hurt a lot, and that is why we need to deal with that energy and not bury it. It may be something you haven’t thought of since it happened or something you barely remember that is still weighing on your heart. Energy cannot be destroyed, only moved. When we give this energy a direction, it allows it to be recognized and released to be used in a more positive way in the Universe somewhere else.
Meditation to Heal Your Heart Chakra from Family Drama:
To start, we will set our intention to heal this chakra from pain related to your family. By making an intention like this, it’s like setting a theme for your mind. Your mind can redirect your energy and help move the stuck energy in your Heart chakra. By starting to visualize healing, we are kickstarting the chakra to function in a more harmonious way. Take a moment to set your intention now as you recite this affirmation three times, “I intend to heal my Heart chakra of negative family energy right now.”
Sit tall with a straight spine. Take slow deep breaths in and out of your nose during this meditation. Now feel a gentle but powerful white light start to enter the top of your head. It is coming from a very pure place to help release the lower vibrations in your Heart chakra. This healing light comes into your heart area and becomes brighter with each breath. As you breathe, visualize the most painful family memories leaving you. Each breath leaves you lighter and more free of the past.
Now start to remember the fun times and the moments you laughed so hard you cried. Think of the kind gestures between you and your family and feel the love that is there. Feel the healing energy getting any remaining heaviness from your heart as you take one more deep cleansing breath.
Envision a tree in front of you now. This is your family tree. You sit on one of the branches and notice that you are in a forest of trees. Each tree is using the same air, Sun, soil, and water. You are connected to the forest and a part of the tree. There is a renewed sense of growth in this wise old tree now that you have given it some of your love and healing. You can see new buds beginning to grow on the branches. This tree has lasted through many natural storms and it is resilient.
Now envision the sky watering the tree and the soil giving it nutrients. Feel the Sun giving it life and feel that this is a part of the natural cycle of the Universe. Feel the peace and strength of this tree.
Now take three deep breaths to come back to the room where you are sitting. Notice if you feel a shift in your energy after this meditation. For the remainder of the week, you can do this meditation as much as you want as well as look at the tips below for more chakra healing. The Heart chakra resonates with the color green so any way you would like to incorporate that color into your life will help. Be gentle with yourself during this intentional healing process and drink lots of water to help cleanse your emotional and physical body of old energy. Allow yourself to rest or process emotions as they come up and know your intentions are already helping you heal.
3 Crystals for Heart Chakra Healing:
Crystals work with your energy to gently lift your vibration. These crystals are known to help the Heart chakra but if you feel called to work with another one, listen to your intuition. You can hold them in meditation and carry them with you throughout the day. They will also help remind you of your intention.
This crystal helps lift depression and open the heart. It is good for grief, relieves stress, and promotes a positive outlook.
Malachite helps you communicate in a more loving way as well as provides transformation in the form of deep energetic healing. It is known to help the Heart chakra with emotional wounds.
The soothing amethyst crystal can help with anxiety we may have about family issues or because we want to help someone. It will help you find a more positive perspective and protect your energy field.
3 Foods for Heart Chakra Healing:
Green foods are a great way to help stimulate and heal your Heart chakra. The unconditional love I mean us to feel is generated by the Heart chakra so acts of love such as eating clean will generate more of this healing self-love which can mend your own relationship with your soul which is where true healing begins. Eating healthy also improves the function of your physical body, allowing you to feel good and raise your vibration.
This plant has a high magnesium content which helps us feel calm and allows us to have restful sleep. It is very hydrating which helps us maintain emotional balance.
This hydrating melon has natural sugar which can help us maintain healthy blood sugar levels which is what makes it a great snack. It can help replace unhealthy forms of refined sugar as a self-love ritual.
3. Green Apple
This can help you feel energized and has a cleansing effect on your blood. The niacin in green apple is purifying and aids in detox.
3 Scents for Heart Chakra Healing:
All things in nature have a natural resonance and aromatherapy is a long-standing form of chakra healing you can use in tandem with the meditation. These scents are known to help the Heart chakra and you can use them in the form of essential oil or incense.
This is used for heartache to lift the mood and even helps reduce inflammation that can cause pain. If you feel your emotions aren’t stable, this is a great scent for you.
This gentle scent provides a sense of peace and calmness. If you struggle with anger, this can help you channel that energy in a positive way.
This soothing scent helps us feel safe and invites feelings of love into our energy field. This can help raise your frequency if you feel stuck in negativity or feel like a victim.
3 Yoga Poses for Heart Chakra Healing
Yoga is a time tested practice that involves physical postures that target the energy centers in our body to help our energy flow. These three poses are not hard and will help the energy flow in your Heart chakra. Be sure to breathe slowly and deeply through your nose as you do them to send more energy to the muscles as you stretch them.
Lay on your stomach and place your palms on the ground under your shoulders. Gentle press into your hands to lift your chest and straighten your arms. Bring your shoulders down away from your ears and hold the pose for three breaths.
Lay on your back and bend your knees placing your feet on the ground with heels to your backside. Lift your hips and see if your chest will touch your chin. Maybe interlace your hands underneath you as you take three deep breaths in the pose.
3. Seated Forward Fold
Sit with your legs out in front of you and reach forward for your toes. Breathing gently through your nose, relax into the pose as you let the weight of your head lengthen your neck and spine. Stay in the pose for about a minute without forcing and relax as much as possible.

If you didn’t feel a sense of relief just yet, you may have another chakra that is blocked. You can scan your energy and see if there is a place that feels heavy in your body. Just as we sent healing white light to our Heart chakra, you can send that same healing white light to the area that feels murky or out of sync with the rest of your body. You have the intuition to sense where energy is stuck and you can use your intention to send healing energy.
This is something that each person can do regardless of past experience. Breathe slowly and deeply as you do this process and sense the energy starting to break apart so the light can heal you.
One way to check if your chakras are blocked is to use a Chakra Pendulum. The pendulum allows you to ask it to swing in one direction for yes and one direction for no. You can use it to help interpret your intuition and aid in your healing process. You can also combine your chakra healing with a Free Daily Tarot Reading to help unlock your intuition which can always guide you to your inner path of healing.
The stronger your relationship with your intuition, the more clear your own healing journey will become. Finally, you can further work on healing your Heart chakra by taking time to do things for yourself. Any act of self-love will be time well spent on your healing journey.

Every zodiac sign is different, and our differences are what makes us beautiful. Like a flickering autumnal leaf, your personality is original and like no one else’s. And just like every individual is unique, how you choose to celebrate and enjoy yourself is unique.
The shifting of the seasons is a magical process for many people in the world, depending on the latitude of their location. Autumn is well-loved for its transitional nature and the feeling you get that everything is morphing and shifting into a new paradigm.
Right now, in the Northern Hemisphere, we are beginning to experience the magic of Fall. Regardless of your sign, there’s a good chance that this shifting of the seasons affects you on both a spiritual and physical level: not only do we have to pull our winter jackets out of the closet, but the shift in weather actually ignites a shift within our own being. When we sense the winds of transformation, our bodies can’t help but join in.
So, what is the best way to indulge in the beauty of autumn? Well, it depends on your Sun sign (click here to grab your free birth chart)! Each of us reacts to different situations with varying emotions—and even your Sun sign isn’t the only sign that determines who you are at your core.
Each sign enjoys life in myriad ways, and today we will explore the most perfect autumnal activity for you, based on your zodiac sign.
Your independence is palpable, Aries—and your willingness to explore your internal realm fills the room. This is a great time to let go of the need for external approval and spend some time approving of yourself. Try taking up writing within a journal or blog to create a perfect, autumnal hobby—and write about your favorite sensations of the season.
You enjoy the finer things in life, and autumn is a sensory overload for you. The smell of burning leaves, pumpkin, and spicy cinnamon are enough to send your senses into a tailspin. Use this time to embrace your sensory indulgence: surround yourself with warm, spicy smells of apple and cinnamon, and breathe in the warm and comforting aromas.
Geminis are a dynamic air sign that are hard to pinpoint: There are so many aspects to your personality that sticking with one is almost impossible. Embrace your fluid nature and ask yourself which activity most speaks to your soul. You are a transformative individual, and it’s important that you embrace the changes in your own spirit.
Cancers are a sensitive water sign that cares deeply for their loved ones. When it comes to fall activities, those that involve your family are best. This is the best time to spend cooking and caring for your loved ones—activities that seem to come naturally to you. Surround yourself with your family during this season.
The spark within your personality is enough to start a bonfire—and maybe that’s exactly what you need. As a social creature, this is the best time to spend with your friends and family. You don’t even have to come up with a big, Thanksgiving spread. Just spread the warmth in your own backyard and invite your loved ones to come and enjoy the leafy aroma.

You rarely take a break from all your hard work, Virgo. But relaxation is necessary for healthy spirituality! Force yourself to spend some time relaxing in one of your favorite areas of life—nature. This is the perfect time to take a stroll through your favorite park and soak in your very real appreciation for natural beauty. Watch the leaves fall while you let go of any of summer’s hang-ups.
Libras seek beauty, truth, and love above many other aspects of life. Celebrating the fall season for a Libra almost certainly involves some element of beauty: this is the time to explore nature, Libra. Go on a mountain walk with your best friend or plan a picnic in the park. The beauty of the falling leaves will speak to your heart.
Scorpios are a mysterious Water sign that almost seem like they were made for fall. You should try to find an activity that will embrace your natural proclivity towards all-things-mysterious. Try to find a spooky tour that you can enjoy with friends to embrace your Nancy Drew side. This is the perfect time to dive into your love of mystery.
Sagittarius is a Fire sign that clings to their positivity. The autumnal season is as exciting as any other, if not more, for the optimistic Sag. This is the best time to sit down with your list of wonderful goals and narrow them down: think about all the things you want to accomplish in the coming seasons, preferably by a cozy, warm fire, with a cup of hot cocoa.
Capricorn is a family-oriented Earth sign that enjoys spending their time with the people that mean the most to them. And this season happens to offer a lot of opportunities for spending that time with your family—try building a bonfire in the backyard and spending the night catching up with cousins, aunts, uncles, parents, and grandparents. Your conversation will only be enhanced with the warm smell of burning leaves!
Aquarians are an inventive and social Air sign that loves a group effort. This is the time of year to embrace your love for a team by creating a team of fun. Whether you’re working on a work project or simply embracing the love of friends, try to dive into the feel of fall by involving your partners-in-crime. Take the group to a theater event or a nice dinner to exchange ideas and truly appreciate autumn.
Pisces are the Water-ruled dreamers of the zodiac: your imagination never seems to quit. Embrace that imaginative personality by being creative this season—draw pictures of your favorite autumn tree or write a song about the way the burning leaves smell. As long as you embrace your creativity, your autumnal endeavors will feel fulfilling.
The beauty of autumn does not exist solely within the changing colors of the individual leaves on each tree: part of the beauty exists within the transformation of ourselves. Use this beautiful, fall season to embrace every inch of yourself while transforming your cells.
Let your internal light shine like the autumnal, burgundy, glowing sunsets of autumn.

On 23rd October, the Sun leaves Libra and enters the magnetic and intense sign of Scorpio. This Water sign is one of the most intriguing signs of the zodiac, for it encompasses an astonishing amount of depth in character and often a Scorpio will have to battle between their light side and their dark side in order to reach wholeness and ultimate satisfaction. Anyone with their Sun or rising sign in Scorpio will understand this fully, but even if you have a lot of Scorpio in your natal chart which is not the Sun or rising, you will still feel the effects of it in your life.
This is a Fixed sign and their determination to see things through is one of their greatest strengths. Of all the signs, Scorpio is able to go through some of the most horrific storms of life and come out on the other side, stronger and wiser than ever before. They are loyal to the end and excellent to have around in a crisis; a Scorpio will never abandon you in a time of need. Though they are often a bubbling pot of emotions, Scorpio always plays with a poker face, making them difficult to read at times.
But those of a Scorpionic nature often come with a dark side; intense rages, obsessive jealousy and depressive torment are not uncommon to them. This is why Scorpio is viewed as the sign of transformation – by transforming their dark into light, they achieve the pinnacle of their purpose and can then help others going through the same struggles.
So, what does the Sun in Scorpio herald for us in the months of October and November? A time of transformation, a time of facing our shadow side, a time of challenge for many – but ultimately, a time of opportunity and growth as individuals. A Scorpio transit means it’s time to face whatever we have been burying or hiding in our lives, whether it’s an aspect of our lives or an aspect of ourselves. Surrender is an important theme of Scorpio, as often we win by surrendering.
Tarot online can certainly help us prepare for this intense period, as can checking out your daily Tarot. We can also prepare our own personal Tarot card readings in order to make the best of this powerful energy. Read on below to familiarize yourself with a spread dedicated to the Scorpio season and find out how you can use the Tarot card meanings to wield the transformational energies to your greatest advantage.
3-Card Tarot Reading for the Scorpio Sun:
Question: How can I use the energy of Scorpio to help me?
- Card 1: An aspect of myself I am hiding
- Card 2: The best way for me to deal with it
- Card 3: What will happen if I choose to face it
Below is an example spread that I did after shuffling the Tarot cards, so you can see how the reading may pan out:
Card 1: Queen of Wands
The Queen of Wands is a bright, confident person who is comfortable in her own skin and is often the life and soul of the party. The card in the position of something I am hiding indicates that this is a side of me I am repressing. It could be due to insecurities or fears of being my ‘true self’. This indicates there is a Queen of Wands inside me that I am not releasing for one reason or another.
Card 2: 3 of Pentacles
The 3 of Pentacles is about working with others to achieve a goal. It is a card of teamwork. The card in this position indicates that the best way for me to deal with my repressed Queen of Wands is to reach out to others for help. This could mean joining a group or forum of people who can help build my confidence. It could mean taking part in a discussion group where I can talk openly and freely about my concerns, without fear.
Card 3: The Empress
The Empress is someone who ‘has it all’ so to speak; the Empress is comfortable in her own skin and loves herself and others in equal measure. The Empress knows her own worth and doesn’t seek validation or approval from others. She accepts her virtues and flaws in equal measure and possesses a quiet sort of confidence that radiates to all those who come into contact with her.
Overall: This reading tells me there is work to be done on my confidence and insecurities. If I should choose to reach out for help, then I can blossom into the Empress with time.

Scorpio season is here! The Sun will be in Scorpio on October 23 to November 22, touring this Water sign for almost a full month. Mercury and Venus are already in Scorpio, and a New Moon occurs in this sign on October 27. We’re already talking taboos with Mercury in Scorpio and are more passionate in love with Venus in Scorpio. Now that the Sun is in Scorpio, we all get an extra heaping dose of Scorpio through our lives and personalities.
This Scorpio season does get a little complicated since Mercury will retrograde, appearing to move backward October 31 to November 20 in Scorpio. A good chunk of Scorpio season this year gets that kick from Mercury retrograde. This means we’ll have to maneuver both!
You’ll want to keep track of all of the astro-happenings with the Astrology Calendar so you don’t miss a beat!
What Scorpio Season Means
Scorpio is known for being an intense sign, so the intensity can ramp up during Scorpio season. This means that anything you do, you don’t do halfway. Scorpio is not a fan of half-attempts at anything! Go all in, or don’t go at all.
Passion is often associated with Scorpio, so you can feel more passionate during Scorpio season. This can play out in your relationships, and you can show more passion for the people you love and strengthen your relationships. That can be helpful with intimacy and close connections. This can also play out in other areas of life, and anything that you can be passionate about. Causes, projects, ideas, plans, or hobbies can get a dose of passionate energy.
Scorpio doesn’t accept anything superficial, wanting to dig deeper below the surface, so this sign is quite researching. No matter how much digging is required, Scorpio can keep going until everything has been exposed. Scorpio season can be a great time to do research and investigate whatever you need to know more about, and to cut through the B.S.
And of course, there is the Scorpio tendency to be obsessive! This sign is so passionate and so intense that it can have a hard time letting go of people, places, things, ideas, plans, causes, hobbies – anything! Chalk it up to being a Fixed sign, stuck in its positions, and a Water sign, so it’s guided emotionally. This can be a good thing when you need to focus on something you can’t give up on and want to see all the way through, so that is something that can be focused on during Scorpio season.
How to Manage the Demons, Darkness & Depths of Scorpio Season
Since Scorpio is so passionate, intense, and researching, Scorpio season is an excellent period to face some of those inner demons you’ve been running from, bring them out into the cold light of day, and conquer your fear of them. Even if it’s as bad as you think it is, it’s likely worse to keep that demon hidden away. Vanquish the demon instead!
With Scorpio season, you can stick with things enough to explore the depths inside of you, and bring a little light into the darkest corners. We’ve all got darkness inside of us, and you can use this period to go into the parts of yourself that you’d normally shy away from. Scorpio is a creature of the dark.
Keep in mind that since Mercury is retrograde for most of this Scorpio season, it’s even more important for you to try to use this Scorpio energy productively. If you don’t, and you keep running from the demons, refuse to explore your depths, and keep the light away from the dark, the retrograde can mean this Scorpio season is a huge challenge for you that creates even more problems. You don’t need that! Embrace the energy and use it instead.
4 Tips for Scorpio Season Survival:
Here are 4 quick tips to get through this Scorpio season:
1. Have positive outlets for passionate energy.
Since passion can run so high during this season, you’ll want to make sure you’re channeling that productively to avoid fits of rage and emotional explosions. Use it in creative projects, hobbies, or exercise.
2. Spend some quiet time reflecting.
You may want to write things down in a journal, talk it over with someone you trust, or use art as a way of expressing yourself. Reflection can be a good way of better understanding the demons underneath and vanquishing them once and for all.
3. Strengthen your intuition.
Scorpio is surprisingly intuitive, a trait normally assigned to fellow Water sign Pisces, but each of the Water signs are intuitive in their own ways. With Scorpio, it may be blocked by emotional baggage, so the more you strengthen your intuition, the more those blocks can fall away, and the more you remove blocks, the more your intuition is strengthened. It may even unleash your inner witch!
4. Transform, transform, transform!
The natural ruling planet for Scorpio is Pluto, the planet of transformation. Pluto gives Scorpio its passion and power, and absolutely loves a good transformation. This is even truer during Mercury retrograde, and it’s awesome energy for major transformations, so pick at least one thing in your life you can transform for the better or breathe new life into (and if you need some courage, consider making a talisman with a piece of your clothing). It helps with the demon-slaying too!
Special Note for Scorpio Suns, Moons & Risings:
The energy for you can be super intense, the most intense of any of the signs, so it’s a good thing you’re used to intensity! But this can become overwhelming and take you over, so it’s even more important for you to try to get some control over this energy. With Mercury also retrograde, you may find that this period is either one full of setbacks and delays and mismanagement, or one full of second chances you didn’t think you’d ever get.
Which will it be? That’s up to you!

Scorpio season can be intense, passionate, and a little scary sometimes, but if you know what to do with it, it can be empowering! And while this Scorpio season does have the hiccup of Mercury retrograde, Mars is going to enter Scorpio at the end of this season on November 19 to the end of 2019.
Mars will help to give you the opportunity to get everything sorted and centered, so even if Mercury retrograde throws off this Scorpio season for you, you’ll have another shot at it thanks to Mars. You have plenty of opportunities for the rest of this year to explore your depths and darkness, use passion productively, and vanquish demons!

We are at an interesting point in the year, friends, as we are just a few short months away from the end of 2019. We are already thinking about the holiday season, and with that often comes the thoughts of a new year ahead. And with THAT, we begin thinking about this year and whether or not we’ve accomplished our 2019 goals. Have you? Don’t think about resolutions that didn’t last, but really think about where you were this time last year, and where you want to be… this time next year in 2020.
One divination tool that we can use to help us in this reflection process is the tool of numerology. Every month of every calendar year is accompanied by a theme of numerology and the energy vibrations of the number of that month. October 2019 is no different! October carries with it the theme of number 10, which in numerology breaks down to number 1. Number 1 is a master number that you can use to be the master of your Fate this month.
Here’s your formula; it’s simple: 1 + 4 = October 2019.
September 2019 Review: Numerology and the Number 9 – What September Means
October Numerology – New Beginnings
October numerology is all about new beginnings. This is fitting as we just launched a brand new season under the Cardinal sign of Libra. When the Sun entered Libra in September, a new cycle began.
Now we are in October and we are really watching some of those new beginnings from last month take hold, while seeing new ones ushered in. And October’s numerology of number one ties into all of that, with the power of intuition and leadership combined with new chapters helping you to really clinch those October 2019 goals.
October is the tenth month of the year and so to get to its numerology themes we need to break down the number 10. In numerology, we always break down 2 digit numbers into one digit by adding them together – 1 + 0 = 1. So October is always a month to launch some new beginnings.
Also in numerology, the number 1 resonates with the themes and energies of higher-level intuition, new beginnings, leadership, and really following the straight and narrow in life. 1’s of the world that have a life path 1 are always working to take charge in their life and in the lives of others.
We can get numerology readings for anything, from your home address to your birthdate to the day of the year. Try our tool now to find out your Daily Calendar Day Number and use this along with your Daily Horoscopes to get a snapshot for your day ahead.
In October, we are resonating like life path 1’s a little bit. We want to use our intuition to take charge of our life. Also at this time of year we have the veil between our world and the Other Side a little thinner than usual as we get into the throes of Fall. That intuition is sending you a powerful message now, or maybe several.
What is your intuition saying?
If you are hoping to get to some real 2019 goals accomplished this month, make a list. Take charge of it. Number each item on the list in terms of what order you want those goals done, and then set a date on the calendar to do them by. Whether you have 20 items or 2, you’re on fire now for those new beginnings. Use your existing foundations of your year, and build on that.
And, thankfully, the numerology of October 2019 is going to help you do just that.
October 2019 Numerology – Building on Foundations
In addition to the energies of the number 10, October 2019 also has the energy of the number 4. We get this by adding up all of the numbers in the month, in the same way we add up all of the numbers in our birthday to get our life path number. Use this free life path number calculator to see this for yourself.
So for October 2019, we are adding up the digits of the tenth month of the year 2019. So that is 10 plus 2019 which needs to be broken down into single digits through addition like this:
1 + 0 + 2 + 0 + 1 + 9 = 13 = 1 + 3 = 4
Now we have the energies that are like life path 4 merging with the energies of number 1 in October 2019. The energy of number 4 is very much like the fourth house in astrology, which rules your roots and the foundation of your life. That generally refers to either our actual home building, or the family or people that construct the foundations of our lives.
Most of our goals in any given year are all about serving our family’s needs. Even paying for the building we sleep in that we call home serves this function, even if you live alone. But at the same time, as we start thinking about the holiday season, more and more family stuff is at the top of our mind.
So take this energy from October, which is 1 using intuition and leadership, and combine it with the energy of numerology 4 which is foundations and family. Then work on the foundations you want to build new beginnings for the people that you love the most.
Even though 2019 may be almost over, it is never too late to launch new goals, or plan new things to help you get closer to them. Build on the foundations that you have already started today.
What foundations are you building on? What foundations CAN you build on?

Use the powers of numerology and the number 1 this month to tap into that intuition and unlock your potential to launch true progress towards your goals. Start using your life path number and past life number today during this intensely spiritual period. Get your free past life number calculated now.
Then, discover the energies of numerology 4 symbolizing October 2019 and stack those goals in the middle of the foundations and support system that surrounds you.

It’s the final countdown to Fall. We are in the last chunk of Summer, and the lazy and hazy days are winding down. But that doesn’t mean the fun is over. Some of it is just beginning! All of the fun you’ve been having this season that started with the New Moon eclipse in Cardinal sign of the Water signs, Cancer, is going to start laying down dome roots.
The New Moon in Fixed Fire sign Leo that came one month after that lit a spark on some of your biggest dreams. Maybe some of them were just fantasy. But who cares? Isn’t dreaming big and living large what Summer is all about? It’s what Leo is all about too.
Were we right? Revisit these New Moon in Leo Love Horoscopes to get a check on your love game. It’s not too late to plant the seeds of new beginnings in love.

You’ll want to focus on doing just that, laying down some roots and planting the seeds of new beginnings as we work towards Fall.
And it’s not just the New Moon. Communicator Mercury is entering Virgo as well. You are going to start seeing the lazy days wind down, and some slower but more productive, and more committed, energy coming in.
Virgo energy is going to draw your attention to a flawless attention to detail. That is going to have you nitpicking as well. Try not to jump to that. When you are confused or perplexed, use this slower energy of Virgo to take a step back and assess the situation from a realistic perspective.
When you are feeling stuck and need to mull something over, our Daily Horoscopes are by your side. And, a Free Tarot reading during the New Moon zone will help you to make some sound decisions.
Logic prevails over emotions now. It’s time to be as real as it gets. But just because you are using your head, doesn’t mean you can’t bring your heart with you.

Use your feelings words but also be very rational amidst likely outbursts today. Being the calm one makes you the winning one.

One of the first things people like to discover when it comes to astrology is compatibility between signs. Astrology can be a fun, unique way to try to determine whether or not you and your match are right for each other. But astrological compatibility may be more complex than you originally thought.
The easiest and most popular way to look at your compatibility with another person using the map of the stars is to look at and compare your Sun signs. (Your Sun sign refers to the location of the Sun when you were born and is the sign you most likely identify as or check when looking at horoscopes.) While there is some definite truth to the compatibilities found between Sun signs, there are many other key factors to consider.
Your birth chart consists of your unique astrological map, detailing the position and relationships of the planets at the time of your birth. The Sun sign is one of the most important signs to examine, yet there are many other aspects within your chart that contribute to your one-of-a-kind personality. Other important details to look at when it comes to love include your Moon sign, your Rising sign, and your Venus placement — and the houses they fall under.
For a truly comprehensive dive into the positive and negative aspects of a certain relationship, you might want to consult an Astrologer and ask them to run your birth charts together, a process that results in a synastry report. The synastry report will look at how your charts interact together and give you a detailed view of strengths and weaknesses this partnership may possess. This is the best approach for a compatibility report that truly factors in all the elements of your personality; yet exploring the compatibility between Sun signs can still be a fun and easy way to take a light-hearted peek into your union.

Sun Sign Compatibility
It’s true that there are many factors that go into your unique birth chart, but your Sun sign is still likely to represent a substantial portion of who you are, astrologically.
Your Sun sign represents your essential identity, your life force, your individuality. Your Sun sign can tell you quite a bit about yourself, so it’s no wonder that we use our Sun signs so frequently to explore romantic compatibility.
The following guide will tell you which signs you are most likely to vibe with, based on your Sun sign.
As a passionate Fire sign, you have a charming personality that seems to draw people to you. It may not be difficult for you to find a match, however, pairing up with another Aries may cause the fire and passion to grow beyond your preferred boundaries.
Your most compatible signs are fellow Fire signs like Leo and Sagittarius, or intellectual Air signs, like Aquarius and Gemini.
Taurean energy is sensible yet sensual, although as your loved ones may know, you can come across as stubborn at times. This quality could also be attributed to the loyalty you possess, which you need from your partners.
You would get along well with the loyal and hard-working Virgo, another grounded Earth sign. Additionally, the understanding and intuitive nature of Pisces will work hard to see your point of view.
Geminis are known as the “Twin Sign” because of the duality within their nature. Your mind is sharp and quick, and you need someone who can keep up with your shifting ideas.
The intellectual nature of fellow Air signs Libra and Aquarius are quick-witted enough to follow your speeding train of thought. The dual nature of Pisces is also likely to understand the many sides of your personality.
Cancers are a sensitive Water sign, whose emotional nature can sometimes lead to jealousy or misunderstandings within relationships.
You would pair well with someone who understands your emotional nature, like the intuitive and mysterious Scorpio. The intimate and loyal nature of the Taurus would also fulfill your need for deep connection.
Leos are gregarious and friendly, preferring the center stage to a seat in the audience. You need to find a mellow yet light-hearted personality that will support your need for admiration.
Sagittarians are a contemporary to your Fire sign, and they admire your willingness to put yourself out there. On the other hand, social Libras are happy to find the balance between their need for beauty and your need for love.
Virgos are practical and grounded, hard-working and independent. You need someone who shares your values and pragmatic concerns, like fellow Earth signs, Taurus and Capricorn.
The earthy nature of these signs helps you express the parts of yourself that may seem less exciting to some, like organization and a strong work ethic. These signs complement each other’s need for stability in order to find passion.
The Air sign, Libra, is concerned with balance, beauty, truth, and love. You prefer harmony to confrontation, and you like to get along within relationships.
The buoyant energy of Leo works well with your love of beauty and life in general, while a fellow Air sign would bring out your need for intellectual discourse. A Gemini, Aquarius, or even another Libra would flow well with your personality.
This Water sign runs deep and contains a wealth of mystery and intrigue.
You need a partner who feels things intensely and doesn’t shy away from the grittiness of life, like another Scorpio. Your love of life’s mystery and intensity will be understood and even celebrated within such a union. You would also get along well with the watery, dreamy Pisces.
Your bubbly, optimistic personality is always looking for the next fun thing to do, and as a result, you get quite bored and often lose focus.
You need another adventure-seeking personality, like your Fire sign counterparts, Leo and Aries. Leos bring out your social side and help you put yourself out there, while Aries’ fire feeds your passion for life and helps you maintain your own enthusiasm.
This sign doesn’t beat around the bush, and you won’t get along well with anyone who prefers to sugarcoat a situation.
Your Earth flows well with the grounded natures of Virgo and Taurus, as they understand your need for practical communication. You might also find a compatible union with Scorpio, who isn’t afraid of talking about the difficult subjects, and whose sensual nature will encourage a passionate physical relationship.
Aquarians are the revolutionaries of the zodiac, always innovating and thinking of new and exciting ways to better humanity. You need another visionary like yourself to spark ideas and passion in your life.
The far-reaching goals of the Sagittarius would inspire and delight your senses. On the other hand, you can maintain deep and intellectual conversations easily with fellow Air signs, Libra and Gemini.
Pisces are the dreamers — sensitive, whimsical, and ruled by Water. You need someone who understands your emotive nature and supports your creativity and self-expression.
Fellow Water signs, Cancer and Scorpio, understand what it’s like to swim in the depths of emotional waters, and they won’t shy away when you’re feeling moody. These signs will support your creativity and acknowledge your feelings.
The Astrological Truth
While this guide suggests certain signs that you may be more compatible with than others, it is impossible to say that there is any sign you would be truly incompatible with. Our Sun signs can guide us toward many layers of truth, but to accurately determine true compatibility, you must look at both of your charts in conjunction with one another.

Your Checklist for the New Moon in Lovable Libra
• Spruce It Up A Bit
With the Sun (and many of the other planets) in Virgo, the past few weeks have been about getting back to the grindstone for many. With the Sun now in Libra, and also the New Moon in Libra, art and romance will be the focus. Libra is ruled by Venus, who loves companionship and beautiful environments. Is it time to spice up your wardrobe by donating and thrift store browsing or perhaps you’d like to do something fun and flirty with your hair? Your true beauty is on the inside where your creativity lives so express that love for the world and it will start to be mirrored back to you.
• Even Out Your Life Boat
Is all of your time and energy spent on one side of the ship of your life causing you to feel lopsided? Balance is also a key theme with Libra, so what you want to do here in this New Moon period is to take stock of what is out of whack in your life. Where do you need more balance? Relationships? Work? Make a list, but focus on the first thing you wrote down because subconsciously, that is your most important one. Focus your wishes on that first thing, and make a task list for the rest. Libra loves lists!
• Lead With Optimism & Let Creativity Soar
Virgo energy was about over-analyzing and obsessing and we may have felt like a total stress ball. But now, Libra energy is about grace and composure. Use your ability to see the good in any situation to rise above pettiness and let optimism win. You can now see how things can go right instead of looking for problems so use it to launch into your creative pursuits!
• Don’t Stick Your Foot In It
You may feel smarter than everyone else but stay humble. Libra is a skilled communicator, as a Cardinal sign in the Air group, they are also among the most intelligent. A well thought out response in every situation is a must, or you will say something you will regret. Think before you speak.
• Enjoy the Journey
Virgo was about productivity and thoroughness which can just feel like a lot of work but Libra is about enjoying what you do so take time to dress up, cook something special, and engage with people throughout your day so you don’t just feel like you’re going through the motions but that you’re truly having memorable and exciting new experiences!
• Look for Opportunities to Make Peace
Smooth out any edges of drama that crop up around you, and in New Moon energy that is inevitable. As the zodiac sign of balance and harmony, Libra is very good at squashing fights and drama in their track. Instead of engaging, as we as humans are so tempted to do, smooth it out and become the hero in the situation.
• Find Inspiration Through Artistic Expression
Again we go back to beauty, and if finding a happy place inside is difficult, do something around you that is beautiful. Redecorate your bedroom, or even just move the furniture around. Create something beautiful, a garden, a new recipe, or a new poem, wherever your talents are they can be used to create beauty. Elevating music, note, not elevator music, will lift your spirits as well.
Libra energy can be overly critical, so stop judging and don’t fall into complaining. Instead, start dancing and let your hair down. Enjoy the world around you as we embark upon a new season where we will have less work and more personal connection.

Do you feel like your creativity is blocked or stagnant? Numbers can help.
Numerology is a wonderful tool for learning more about your personality and how you share yourself with the world. Your numerological chart consists of many different numbers, the most essential of which being your core numbers. And one of your core numbers, the Expression number, can tell you about your creative style and how to get those juices flowing once more.
Your Expression Number
Your Expression number is based on your full birth name—the name you were given on your birth certificate—and can show you which talents, gifts, strengths, and weaknesses you are likely to experience, as well as who you are at your core.
In numerology, each of the numbers 1-9 are thought to possess a certain energy, and each letter of the alphabet is given a corresponding number:
- 1 = A, J, S
- 2 = B, K, T
- 3 = C, L, U
- 4 = D, M, V
- 5 = E, N, W
- 6 = F, O, X
- 7 = G, P, Y
- 8 = H, Q, Z
- 9 = I, R
To find your Expression number, simply write your full birth name down on a piece of paper and use the chart above to assign numbers to each letter. Once you’ve determined the numerical value, you’ll need to add the digits of each name, until you reach a single digit. We’ll use the name Amy Lyn Smith as an example:
Amy- 1 + 4 + 7 = 12 = 1 + 2 = 3
Lyn- 3 + 7 + 5 = 15 = 1 + 5 = 6
Smith- 1 + 4 + 9 + 2 + 8 = 24 = 2 + 4 = 6
Now, we just need to add the three numbers we’re left with:
3 + 6 + 6 = 15 = 1 + 5 = 6
So, Amy Lyn Smith’s Expression Number would be 6.
Once you’ve found your Expression number, you can use it to learn more about how you express and harness your individual sense of creativity.

Expression Numbers & Creativity
Every person alive has the potential to be creative and self-expressive, even if certain activities—such as drawing, writing, or singing—may not seem to come naturally to you. The following guide will give you a sense of your unique sense of expression and how to foster and boost your creativity.
Expression Number 1
This number is equipped with leadership skills and natural courage. Your energy can be intense, so while you may feel capable of expressing yourself fully, you may not always feel understood by others. Try tapping into a more sensitive, vulnerable form of creativity that really incorporates your emotions. From poetry to painting, any medium that allows you to open and release the energies from your heart will help others see the real you.
Expression Number 2
Your number is associated with connections, intuition and sensitivity. While you might not feel like a natural-born leader, you work flawlessly with others. You may already possess a certain creative style; but to truly break through your potential, try collaborative self-expression—such as working on a group art project or forming a band. You thrive in friendships and group dynamics, and the creative energy of others will bring out the true visionary within you.
Expression Number 3
This number is known for its creative and self-expressive personality, but that doesn’t mean that discipline comes naturally. Chances are, your focus is sprinkled across many mediums and outlets, as it can be hard for you to settle. You would benefit from exploring and increasing your sense of discipline. If you can stick to one artistic project long enough to complete it, you’ll find your imagination expanding and lighting up with all the colors of the rainbow.
Expression Number 4
You are pragmatic and organized, preferring order over creative chaos. You may find it difficult to embrace the clutter accompanied by arts and crafts projects, and therefore avoid participating. You should try reaching out to people for whom artistic endeavors come naturally and soak in their process. By surrounding yourself with the mayhem of their imagination, you’ll be inspired to cut loose and let your own sense of expression get a little messy.
Expression Number 5
This number possesses a carefree quality that others admire, although it can leave you a bit scattered from time to time. You probably don’t enjoy sitting still for too long, preferring instead to seek one adventure after another. Your challenge is to find a form of self-expression that keeps you entertained, which means lots of exploration. Try any new form of creativity that you haven’t yet participated in and see if it sparks a new sense of passion within you.
Expression Number 6
Creativity comes naturally to this number, yet your tendency to put others first can hinder the creative process. Self-expression can only be released when you are willing to acknowledge your needs and take care of them. While your generosity of spirit is admirable, you have to put yourself first every once in a while. Try setting aside an hour or two a day where you can create, undisturbed from the outside world. If you allow yourself the luxury of solitude, your imagination will pour out of you.
Expression Number 7
Your number is marked by an air of the philosophical—you love to explore new ideas and collect any form of wisdom available to you. You are best suited for self-expression and creativity that taps into your thirst for knowledge. You might feel inspired by each new piece of information or spiritual notion. Embrace these flashes of inspiration by writing about your reaction or painting an image of the concrete idea that comes from abstract thought.
Expression Number 8
This number is competitive and driven. You may feel like cultivating creativity is a waste of time, especially if it doesn’t further your career or guarantee some modicum of success. Your challenge is knowing when to take a break and simply play. Giving your creativity room to grow will only further your ability to find innovative solutions to any problems that could deter you on your path. Sit down, grab a pen, and just have fun.
Expression Number 9
Your love for humankind is immense, and you probably daydream often about how you can make the world a better place. Because you are so concerned with the well-being of others, it can be hard for you to express yourself. You have to remember that you deserve to be heard just as much as anyone else does. Try to find the confidence that allows you to feel comfortable with your creativity. Write a poem to your feelings or sing a song about your dreams.
Creativity is Infinite
It doesn’t matter what kind of creative activity you enjoy, whether you prefer to sit down with a box of crayons and some coloring books, or you like to write sonnets to your dog. Self-expression is exactly that—expressing yourself, in whatever form you choose.

The Sun just recently entered Libra on September 23rd and will be in Libra until October 23rd when it moves into Scorpio. Libra and Scorpio are excellent signs for focusing on your relationships, and this time of the year when the Sun travels through them can bring great energy for strengthening your connection with others. The Sun will be in Scorpio until November 22nd, so it’s almost 2 months of positive relationship energy you have to work with.
During this time, you’ll also get a pair of New Moons bringing helpful energy, with a New Moon in Libra on September 28th and a New Moon in Scorpio on October 27th. These New Moons amplify the energy and help us come together. Mercury and Venus are in Libra now and will tour Scorpio, though there will be a Mercury retrograde in Scorpio October 31st – November 20th, so make sure you’re prepared for that. It may bring you out of this period addressing old issues and eliminating intimacy blocks.
Libra Traits vs. Scorpio Traits
Libra is the sign that governs other people. Libra wants to focus on others rather than itself. The Libra personality is one that is usually trying to get everyone on the same page and find a way to keep the peace. Libra isn’t a fan of drama! This is an Air sign, making Libra quite sociable, and a Cardinal sign, so Libra takes charge in diplomacy.
Scorpio, on the other hand, is a very intense sign Water sign full of much more emotion than Libra. Scorpio is researching and wants to get below the surface to find what’s underneath it all. Scorpio takes everything seriously, and as a Fixed sign, sticks with whatever it focuses on. The Scorpio personality is strong and willful.
You may think that Libra and Scorpio don’t have much in common! They are pretty different on the surface. But every sign builds on the previous sign, and Scorpio is the sign that follows Libra, so they do have some commonalities. Relationships is one of them!
Libra, Scorpio & Relationships
Libra rules our committed relationships, the people and relationships that are more than just acquaintances, while Scorpio rules intimacy. As Scorpio builds on Libra, Scorpio takes the commitment of Libra and deepens it with emotional bonds. Scorpio doesn’t take relationships lightly at all, which is something Libra greatly appreciates after putting so much time and energy into commitment.
With the Sun moving through Libra and Scorpio back-to-back, you have a period during the year when you can get serious about commitment and intimacy in your relationships. Keeping things loose and casual doesn’t really fly during this time. Commit and stick around, and put in the time and effort.
BTW, you’ll feel this much stronger if you have any planets in your natal chart in Libra or Scorpio, especially the Sun, Moon, Venus, or Jupiter.
Tips to Improve Relationships With Libra & Scorpio
While the Sun is in Libra, focus on the following to improve your relationships:
– Pinpoint areas of imbalance in your relationships.
There are usually areas where you give too much attention, and areas that you neglect. Work on bringing balance to these areas by taking away from the ones that are sucking up all of the oxygen and giving to the ones that are in desperate need.
– Make compromises.
In every good relationship, you have to agree to meet in the middle sometimes (or most of the time, or all of the time!). If you’ve been feeling the need to push your positions too much and haven’t been open enough to what the people you care about want, this is a good time to take a step back and work on having a more compromising attitude.
– Show respect.
When you respect others, they usually respect you back. Libra loves connections rooted in mutual respect, so if you haven’t been very respectful, or you haven’t been shown much respect, work on changing that. If you show respect and you’re not getting it back, there may be something deeper lurking, or the relationship may not be worth pursuing further.
While the Sun is in Scorpio, focus on the following to improve your relationships:
– Dig deeper.
Pull back the layers of your relationships and of your loved ones. This helps you understand the way they operate and the way your relationship operates. This helps improve your connection and allows you to figure out what needs more work.
– Find solutions to long-standing problems.
With Scorpio, if you just let things continue to grow and fester without trying to find a solution, it can lead to the unraveling of the relationship. Avoid that by facing issues that have persisted in the relationship, coming up with a solution, and committing to it.
– Improve intimacy.
Share more with your loved ones, and understand it’s a two-way street. You have to give as much as you get. Don’t stay closed off. Open up emotionally, and you can connect on a new emotional level. This can be scary, but ultimately leads to much stronger connections. Check out this article on how to use your Moon sign to influence your love language.
Astrology provides you with plenty of chances to get things right in any and every area of life, including relationships. The Sun touring Libra and Scorpio is one of those times when you can get serious and committed. Focus on the relationships that you’d like to strengthen, and see where it can lead.
