Last year you learned the power of choosing to be in the moment, making decisive decisions, and committing yourself to just doing what needs to be done. Congratulations! The ability to lunge at momentary opportunities is a key that will open the door to endless opportunities. There has been a longstanding demand for you to settle down, which can be scary and daunting. It requires a certain degree of conformity and with all the new knowledge that you’re developing it’s likely a struggle to find a home base.
Accept where you are right now and release the desire to create drastic change, unless you are convinced that a complete change is what you desire. If you spend this year unable to ground yourself it will be difficult to find your place. Focus on your fitness, develop a structured routine, and pay closer attention to your health. The most difficult part of taking care of yourself is starting, and then it becomes second nature.
Recognize that not every connection needs to turn into a commitment, and love does come with risks, and those risks should make sense. Remember the responsibility that comes with sustaining an intimate relationship. It’s not easy, but it can be meaningful.

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.

What is a rising sign you ask? The rising sign is the sign that was present on the horizon at the time of your birth. It sits similarly on your birth chart on this horizon line, or equatorial line in your chart on the left or east side of your chart.

Your sun sign represents your core personality, and the qualities of our outward shining self. Your moon sign reflects qualities of your inner core self, or emotional self.
Rising sign is your outlook on the world and first impression you give to others.
Rising sign also dictates where the Astrological Houses lay within your chart.
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
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.

Uranus in Taurus is still working you over this year, still making space for more intimacy through challenging your favorite ways of operating.
It disrupts by slowing down. It revolts by putting pleasure first. It gets real by refusing the logic of anything that takes us out of ourselves. Your closest partnerships and collaborations get exposed as either keeping you from yourself or as uncomfortable roads to freedom, calling you to an honesty that is simple, joyful, embodied, while still wanting you to be yourself.
What does it look like to put your Scorpio powers in service of what is pleasurable, simple, straightforward, and joyful?
This year starts and ends with an exploration of the consequences of structures of your life not being fully livable. It will ask you to investigate your foundations of family and home, to be practical and free.
It will ask you to revisit the narratives that have guided you and given you a sense of self, to look for those that instead make you free to be who you are now becoming.

For My Mother by Penn King 2018
As Jupiter and Neptune conjunct in Pisces, exact in April, echoing throughout 2022, they challenge us to use our sensitivity, vision, and imagination to open a visionary portal, while at the same time staying grounded enough to not get lost, to stay present and use this vision wisely.
Scorpio: This could be a wildly inspired creative year—open to your muse, dance with the spirits, tap into the deeper resources within. Be careful to stay present in relationships; see what is actually occuring and not just what you long for or fear.
This new creative burst can lead to positive outcomes for health and work next year.
