Scorpio is a fixed sign, obsessed in its own unique way with keeping things the same, not losing anything, having control, and maintaining stability and power. Like its solar opposite, the sign of Taurus, it is excellent at persistently pursuing its ends once it identifies them. In October, the skies are in a fixed sign sort of mood. They seek preservation.
What sort of thing might Scorpio be in the mood to preserve in October? Relationships for one thing. Jupiter is in your relationship sector, parking his butt in a fellow fixed sign. He thinks your life should revolve around relationships right now.
Venus, always a relationship planet, will start the month in Libra, weighing your relationships on its imaginary scale. Beginning on the 9th, it decides they’re worth keeping and starts wanting to invest in them. That makes the last three weeks of October excellent for doing things with other people.
There’s also a lot of sexual energy in your skies this month. In addition to sexual energy in your own sign and your relationship sector, Mars is in angular house for you this month. Mars is the planet of sexual energy and he’s right at the top of your chart in October.
Personal stability may be another obsession, as inner planets gather in your own sign. The month begins with the sun, Mercury, and Venus in Libra in your solar 12th house, which could make you feel a bit preoccupied or even lost. But once planets start moving into your sign on the 9th, there’s gathering energy in your sign, culminating with a new moon in Scorpio on the 26th (your annual birthday wish new moon).
You could also become obsessed with things like wireless devices, your neighborhood, or short trips. That’s because your obsessive ruler Pluto is in the part of your solar chart that rules these things, and inner planets in your sign will be checking in with him.Even preserving the state of your home could be a focus as Neptune gets ready to station next month.
Preserving your appearance could also dominate your thoughts during the second half of the month. This is sort of normal around the time of your birthday, as planets in your own sign check out your external appearance and seek to minimize the effects of growing older.
But wait there’s more! As if all that wasn’t enough, there’s also a lot of energy in your chart throughout October around the subject of pursuing goals in your career. If there’s anything the matter with your job situation, you have a fighting shot at addressing it this month. In short, you have a lot of different avenues to pursue in October. It’s your choice as to which and how many of them to focus on.
