Scorpio: (Oct 22–Nov 21) Dive deep. Fixed water Scorpio calls us to look within and face our fears, look under the rocks and find root causes.
The mood is curious, mysterious, magical, sexual, introspective, and profound: we need to add faith, trust and humor.

The beginning of 2021 will focus on radical shifts occurring in the most personal area of life—home and family. Scorpios can sometimes feel as though they don't really fit with their family of origin.
Study and connect with your ancestors. You may feel challenged by what you find, but diving into your roots will lead to acceptance and generosity about how you relate to your origins.
If you've been considering a move or change in the home front, this is the year to initiate your dreams. Perhaps it's just a matter of redecorating or rearranging, but maybe you've been in denial about how your home just isn't working for you right now. You might find yourself contemplating a big move that breaks you out of old patterns and allows you to innovate your personal space.
It's important that you find other people to share your feelings with, even if that feels risky. During this time, the universe is helping you build resiliency and intimacy.
You may feel more agitated than usual—use these new activities to channel excess power into. Like screwing in a lightbulb, this time of year will yield brilliance if you create appropriate outlets to express yourself.
The world needs your gifts now more than ever.

For My Mother by Penn King 2018
We have work to do this year. We may have to rethink our whole philosophy and approach in some quadrant of our life to bring it into line with our present understanding.
Read your Sun sign, Moon sign, and ascendant. Your ascendant points to the practical components where work needs to be done, the Sun to the evolution of your core personality, and the Moon to where you're challenged to stretch your heart.
Scorpio: Take a long deep look at your societal gestalt and the belief systems of your family of origin: how they formed you, where you've rebelled against them but still let them define the paradigm.
Dissolve those old restraints from these new healthy roots, and feed your capacity to love and create.

Sharp focus, perceptive, empowered, mysterious.
The mood is smoky, primal, occult, and curious; still waters run deep.
You are perceptive, focused where you're interested, but can hyper-focus and miss what's just beyond.
You play your cards close to your chest and understand much that is mysterious to others. Your challenge is to see life's gifts as clearly as you can see the problems.
Those born under a Scorpio Moon are curious, private, mysterious, and intense. They need time alone but not loneliness, feel deeply but may have trouble expressing their feelings, which can become explosive under pressure.
While they're wonderful in an emergency, they have no patience for trivia. Trust brings out their depth and loyalty.
Our focus, with and temper sharpen. The mood is broody, sultry, possessive, introspective serious with dark humor. We want to research, look under the rocks, look at the worst-case scenario, and know we're strong enough to handle it.

Scorpio rising signs are goddess of transformation. You may be magnetic or charismatic but also hold tight to your secrets, and those of others. You are a keeper of secrets, both of yours and of others. You easily confront darkness, and may even feel at home in shadow.
Scorpio ascendants are deeply private and sensitive people, though they may be intimidating at first glance. They love deeply and passionately.
We prepare ourselves to dive into the darkness of the season. The veil is thin between our world and the next.
Scorpio is often called the Scorpion, though it can also be seen as an eagle flying overhead with pray in its talons and the phoenix resembling the death and rebirth aspect of Scorpion traits.
The Glyph is similar to that of Virgo, except the tail points outward instead of inward, recognizing Scorpio's ability to see beyond and out into the world.

Scorpio often brings the first frost of the season. The leaves start to change and fall off the trees. The season is shifting as it's preparing itself for the cold months ahead. Many plants and animals begin to get ready for hibernation and draw inward and down for this time.
It is also the time of the mushroom, these wonderful beings transform dead material into rich soil. Scorpio is all about transformation and life within death.
Scorpio rules Dusk or early evening when the sun is behind the horizon line. Libra brings the sunset, and Scorpio opens the night.
The sign opposite Scorpio is Taurus, Taurus rules the morning when we prepare ourselves for the day, Scorpio on the other side readies us for night time activities.
In tune with Scorpio's ability to bring live and death, these body parts match ability our body has to transform waste, rid ourselves of excess and bring life into this world.
The place where Libran body parts and Scorpionic parts meet, cecum and appendix, creates a scorpion like tail shape within our body as well.

Planets in Scorpio almost seem to have a sixth sense in them, their intuition is high in those matters and can understand deeply what the Planet resembles.
Planets in Scorpio carry lots of secrets and truth, whether they care to divulge them, that's up to you.

“The Houses (twelve pie shaped sections) of our personal birth chart attend to all areas of our life. Each house represents a basic facet of human experience from birth to death.”
The placement of each house in your natal chart is dependent on your rising sign. A person with an Aries rising has what is called a “natural chart”. A rising sign is the sign ascending on the eastern horizon on the time of your birth, it can be calculated using a rising sign calculator here!
The Eighth House is concerned with joint resources, including our financial affairs and meeting needs for intimate connection and sexuality.
As we merge deeply with others we may care passionately, hold tightly, then allow for dissolution to take place.

Mars is a planet of action, drive, desire and energy. Aries is also ruled by Mars, Mars in Scorpio is an intense lover, strong willed and hyper focused on what matters to them and extremely passionate.
Mars is our sense of get up and go! It is the capacity to take action and do; it represents motion. It can also affect our temperament.
