Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 22) — You have a lot on your mind. Try not to let it distract you. You can afford to take an optimistic approach (though I know you might not be an expert in this). One by one, various issues that seem to be of the utmost importance will fade into being something you used to be concerned about. The most important issue described by your astrology is about one particular relationship where there seems to be quite a bit at stake. Make plenty of room (mentally, emotionally and in time) to get a sense of where the subject of your concern is really at in life. No matter how close you are to them, please do not assume you know. What you’re interested in is understanding how you really feel (in the first instance) and how they really feel (in the second instance) and then putting the two together. I know this seems like it’s been going on for a while. I don’t think you will be fully grounded in your understanding and your intuitive sense of the relationship until Mars enters Cancer in late March. Until then, you may feel like things could go either way, and it’s important that you leave room for that. The space to breathe will serve you and the situation well.

Planet Waves Monthly Horoscope for December 2022 | Go To All Signs
By Eric Francis Coppolino

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 22) — Mars is retrograde in your 8th solar house, Gemini. In the syntax of astrology, this is the most Scorpio-like house in your chart (because Scorpio is the 8th sign of the zodiac). We find in this house the ability to easily converse with others about the intimate details of your life. We see that you crave not just bonding with others, but the principle of the cosmic twin or twin soul as the essence of your relationships. And there is the picture of you having points of view that may oppose one another, but managing to hold them both at the same time. And with Mars now making some unusual maneuvers here, we see you asking real and potentially uncomfortable questions, and analyzing whether your commitments are right for you. Yet ultimately, whatever the analysis might say, you must do what feels right. This is different for different people; feeling is a more reliable mode of guidance for some signs than others. And for you, it is undeniable: what you feel is what is right. When you determine what is right based on a formula of calculations, it’s unusual for the right thing to actually happen. When you have a body-level understanding, you are in a much better position to move with your whole being and take steps that lead to a better life. You are currently working through various levels of denial, self-deception and wishful thinking. One factor to include (which is on the mental spectrum, as it’s based on a simple enough fact) is: how long (as in months or years) have you been saying you want to change one particular thing?

Planet Waves Monthly Horoscope for November 2022 | Go To All Signs
By Eric Francis Coppolino

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 22) — You are discovering that you cannot control your relationships. Nor should they control you. The whole matter of possession, of ownership and of financial involvement dictating or even influencing the path of intimacy is so far past its shelf life that it’s astounding anyone still finds it useful. Yet, it may seem like the changes necessary to unravel any complications are out of reach. You are about to find out that you have alternatives. These are largely based on shifting your point of view, which will happen if you can loosen up your perceptions and be a bit more psychically mobile. The key here is that the answers do not come from a relationship or from a situation but rather from within yourself. You don’t need to convince anyone of anything. Nobody has to agree with you. I would dare say there is nothing you even have to figure out — you merely need to observe and listen to yourself. You have the intelligence to resolve any pending matters and the resourcefulness to make it happen. All you need is the patience and the understanding that this may take some time, though you would be wise to set some limits there. Using astrology as a kind of clock, three to five months comes to mind.

Planet Waves Monthly Horoscope for October 2022 | Go To All Signs
By Eric Francis Coppolino

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 22) — Matters of intimate relationship are now at the forefront of your life, and this is deep material. While this is always true for you, you have reached a stage in your personal development where certain very old questions are coming up for investigation and resolution. To move through this territory successfully, you need one tool, mainly, which is the ability to be honest with yourself about what you know about yourself, and to extend that honesty into the most significant partnerships in your world. There are times when being truthful will not be convenient. The problem with honesty is that it requires action. The very crux of any therapy or spiritual process is that you learn how to be scrupulously honest with yourself, and then make choices based on that information. Usually the opposite happens: choices are made based on some degree of denial or self-deception — and that is what you are now in the process of ensuring never happens again. If you want to think of yourself as a strong person, this is the actual core of your power, to the extent that you have it. You can only make helpful decisions if you know where you stand with yourself, and if others know where you stand with them. How they feel about you matters, mostly in terms of you being real about those feelings. Under current and forthcoming astrology, this is not the easier path in the short term. Yet, in the long run, you have an advantage, in that you can get so much work done in such a short time, and right now time is the most precious resource. I suggest you consider the extent to which joint financial matters influence what you believe is true. In seeking your deeper truth, and in reckoning with yourself, matters of money and property cannot be a primary consideration.

Planet Waves Monthly Horoscope for September 2022 | Go To All Signs
By Eric Francis Coppolino

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 22) — Asked by a journalist about the role of sex in her extraordinary music, Kate Bush, at age 20, said that art in all of its forms is about sensuality. But sex, she said, is about projection. By that, she meant that there is confusion over who is who in relationships, whose attributes belong to whom, and seeing things as we are, rather than as they are. With your ruling planet Mars making its way across the zone of projection in your chart — Gemini, and your solar 8th house — you will be living in this territory. Yet it might seem like living in a relationship (or potentially, an entanglement). There is probably a financial angle to the scenario. And the nucleus of the relationship spreads out into something that could affect others. You may be wondering just what you’re doing there, how you got there, and what you’re going to do about it. Well, the first thing to do is be there; as in be where you are — known uncommonly as the vipassana meditation. As your ruling planet Mars moves to retrograde motion (which begins next month) you will slowly orient toward figuring out the nature of the past. You will discover many sides to the story, though you’re really looking for one thing in particular: what has motivated you. But for now, Mars is slowing down, and is soon to become the still point of the turning world. And this is a crucial point of view. Whatever your situation, be where you are. Make no plans to go anywhere. And I do suggest some form of physical activity that ritualizes combat (any form of martial arts will do, no matter how basic your study) so that you don’t take out your energy on yourself, or on anyone else in a potentially damaging way. Your situation will move in stages, and if you’re paying attention, you will see just how interesting they are — and do not miss the humor. There is plenty.

Planet Waves Monthly Horoscope for August 2022 | Go To All Signs
By Eric Francis Coppolino

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 22) — Events this month will only take you by surprise if you’re not paying attention. Such means listening to what people say, and deciphering what they mean. It’s currently not popular to do either. More significantly, look at what people actually do, which describes what they want. You know enough right now to make a full evaluation of your personal situation, and to have an informed discussion with partners or loved ones.

One of the challenges you face during this stage of your journey is that you cannot expect everything and everyone to be stable. Was there a time when you could? Perhaps — though you still have a vision for the world where everything more or less stays put. But the world has never been less like this. The influence of technology is a little like the influence of water during a flood. When the water rises, everything gets wet. 

It will help if you keep your conversations in-person rather than conveyed over any form of electrical signal. Eye contact, body language and subtle physical cues all enhance communication. 

Keep in mind the possibility that someone close to you may be responding to their idea of what you want. So this is one place that any conversation must go: a mutual airing out of what all the parties desire, and what they consider necessary. With that out in the open, it will be easier to see if there is really a meeting or basis for collaborating. You must be honest, even if you think you may hurt someone’s feelings. It’s a lot better to be real up-front than it is to reverse yourself in three months when the stakes are much deeper. What you truly want is unlikely to change much. The variable is whether you can create that for yourself. It will help if you steadily remove everything that does not qualify; everything that interferes.

Planet Waves Monthly Horoscope for July 2022 | Go To All Signs
By Eric Francis Coppolino

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 22) — There is a problem right now associated with people having had the view of their own future cut off. This is a loss of perspective that can be costly for many years, as people fall for some hype or another and cut off their own potential. This time of year, however, is when you can see the furthest ahead of you, and sense that you live and indeed participate in a wide world with many possibilities.

Your chart is reminding you of many ways that you must take care of yourself. Part of that is minding your spiritual life, which embraces the emotional and the psychological. What used to be thought of as spiritual for a vast portion of society has been reduced to power, and matters of survival. That is to miss the point entirely — spiritual is about connection above all else. That means connection within, and connection to the people in your environment. Should you ever find yourself isolating, or getting stuck in your root chakra, at least make a note that a more holistic approach is possible.

Spiritual also implies having a sense of your own purpose for existing. This is not something you hope for, long for or wish for, but rather what motivates you every day. Many factors in your chart all but assure you can connect with your purpose without much effort, and mostly by allowing yourself to be you. Herein lies the challenge. There is a lot of “not you” that has been piled on every one of us, and which seems to get in the way of making decisions. 

Even small ones will count for a lot right now. At each and every juncture, take the opportunity to make the choice that is right for you. We both know: you know what it is. You will decide based on who you think you are — so consider that carefully.

By Eric Francis Coppolino

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 22) — Stay busy with what motivates you. Yes you have other work to do — life is a farm, and there is always some chore that needs attention. However, at this time, I suggest you focus on the productive tasks that require little effort and where the time flows easily: the things you like to do, that you also need to do. Then, jam in the other stuff. Usually you take the opposite approach, focusing on what is necessary and setting aside what you prefer. I am suggesting that you re-train yourself and approach the matter of prioritization differently. Act more like you have the freedom to choose what to do. Stick to the things that only you can do, which will tend to be the areas where you’ve developed your talents based on your true nature. Those are the areas to expand into; they are likely to be the most productive and the most profitable, as well as the most personally fulfilling. If ever there was a time when these factors are aligning, it is now. Yet you will need to set aside any guilt complex associated with the crude notion that real work cannot be fun, or that there is always something more important than the thing you want to do. There is still a powerful creative streak running through your chart, and this is calling for expression. This can apply to various shades of art, music and hedonism, as well as the basic truth that wherever there is a problem, there is a creative solution. Yet to do this, you need to be in a relaxed mental and emotional state — so do what you love.

By Eric Francis Coppolino

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 22) — With so much illustrious activity happening in Pisces, only your insecurity stands between you and some phenomenal experience of life and love. This could take two forms: difficulty seeing beyond the edge of what we have all been subjected to the past few years — the loss of potential, of mobility and of faith; and the fear of the jealousy of others. Neither of these are a good excuse not to live fully, though they tend to serve their purpose. Any positive experience you have is likely to feel like you are exceeding something — your quota of happiness, some imposed limit, some rule, some possibility you may feel is too good for you. Persist, and move past that sensation. It is not true and it’s not real. Nor is it true that others are lacking some desire for freedom; to the contrary, if you go with the plans of a close partner, you could find yourself on an unexpected adventure.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 22) — The key to life is feeling good. It’s difficult to figure this out in a world where it seems like everyone and everything is so committed to feeling shitty, and where so many people take for granted that they are depressed and uninspired. In recent years, Chiron has been helping you get underneath anything that has been troubling you. This of course may have enhanced the feeling that you need to pay attention to your health, and by that, I don’t mean watching Dr. Sanjay Gupta reruns all night on CNN. It’s essential that you think of your health holistically, meaning paying attention to how everything influences everything, including you. Rather than looking for a ‘magical cure’, or persisting in any form of hygiene theater, take the effort to sort out what is helpful and what is harmful. Consider food, water, air, activity, your behavior, and who you associate with — all included. Yet there is one other factor that is perhaps the single most important factor in the life of a Scorpio besides an abundant supply of sex, and that is work you can relate to. By relate to, I mean work that expresses who you are, and feeds your self-development. I mean work that you are happy doing, where you can express some creativity, and most of all, that does not negatively impact your health. Perhaps you think this is more than you can ask from life, though the planets say otherwise.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 22) — Mars has moved into your water sign Pisces, so you are likely to be feeling right in your element. That would be water: feelings, your imagination, and your ability to be a receiver of telepathic and empathic information. There is an impressive collection of planets here, and they are urging you to have fun, though you must be sensitive to the needs of a close partner or loved one. Mostly this means hearing them out, and allowing them to speak for themselves. If you pay attention and actually listen, you will go a long way toward gaining their trust and reassuring them that you care. In our time, listening, trusting and caring are radical acts. The world has grown cold, so set your temperature to warm, open your heart and do anything you want.

By Eric Francis Coppolino

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 22) — Yours is a fixed sign, though given its location in your solar chart, all things (and potentially people) related to the sign Pisces are about the way you express your flexibility. They are also the aspects of life most easily toasted to a crisp by stress, time pressure, work ethic and associated responsibilities. They all relate to personal expression of some kind, and the seeking of pleasure: for you, that means everything from making music to painting to creative writing. I am describing the 5th house, or what you find four signs from your own. Others may express this house in more aggressive ways: through physical sports competition, gambling, or dare-devil stuff like bungee jumping. Even if you have a taste for some of that, I would propose that your true fulfillment comes from all that is introspective, sensory and sensuous. If you want to do these things and find yourself continually distracted, you have a clue what is going on: they are fragile under any circumstances, and particularly so in a world that does not truly honor anything that is subtle. One of these aspects of life is relating sexually. Normally, you would not need to remind a Scorpio of such a thing, though there is nothing normal about our moment. There is quite a lot that is distracting from sincere emotional contact between physical humans. You now get a moment to stretch into places you may have neglected or sacrificed for a seemingly more important purpose. The possibilities are wide open; you will need to reach and stretch and explore as a conscious choice. You won’t be pushed into anything, which means that if you don’t take action, very little is likely to happen. Yet if you make the first move, and keep doing so every day for a while, you will feel better.

Planet Waves Monthly Horoscope for April 2022 | Go To All Signs
By Eric Francis Coppolino

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 22) — I was explaining to someone born under your sign today that Scorpio is one of the reasons people are made nervous about astrology. It’s also considered proof that astrology is real. Yet those Scorpionic tendencies exist mostly in rumor. These days, you are a point of contact, warmth and gathering more than anything else. A hidden planet called Apollo is making its way through your sign, so slowly as to represent a permanent feature (it is a new arrival, and will be with you for decades). Apollo is a facilitator of success. You are doing better than most people these days, and everyone knows it. While the modern thing to do is to keep this to yourself, you will only enhance your good fortune if you are generous with others. What you have, and the talents you may offer, are only meaningful if they expand. If you treat them with an energy of contraction or concealment, you will diminish the very best of what life is offering to you. At the same time, I can see that there are a few different sources of either emotional conflict that may be riling you up, some of which are coming from your family or household. You may not feel like you have much in common with your family these days (which for a Scorpio Sun or rising is a positive development, as it will encourage you to be more independent). And there seems to be a disruptive factor in your relationships that sparks up when you least expect it. All of this can work together toward a rather timely goal: you are the founder of a tribe, or perhaps more accurately, a family of choice. Yet unlike most other groups, one attribute I suggest you cultivate and even insist upon is the right of people to be individuals: to act and think and choose freely. There is room for everyone in your life, whether or not you like them. That matters less than everyone thinks.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 22) — You may be trying to make decisions, only to find that they are making you. This has been one of our great challenges on the road to personhood and maturity, and it’s come up in spades twice in recent years: once in early 2020, and again right now. Among the topics of inner debate are the supposed meanings of when you make choices different from those of the people around you. You recognize that while the old ways have their value, they are not equally useful all the time. You have been struggling to update your files, and now have yet another opportunity to do so. The ideas you’re grappling with all seem to involve resources, the concept of sacrifice, and your whole approach to sex. You might ask what about love and commitment? Well, those things surely count, though they always seem to bend to circumstances. And those words and the state of mind they represent rarely seem to include love and commitment toward one’s own life. Of course you want to create an existence that you share with others, though to do that, you must claim it for yourself first.

Planet Waves Monthly Horoscope for March 2022 | Go To All Signs
By Eric Francis Coppolino

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 22) — The astrology of late February through April is a bonanza for Scorpio and Scorpio rising, if you remember to have fun. This will do more to enhance your creativity than anything else you can do. You may need to set your phone’s alarm clock to go off every 15 minutes. You may need to keep a sketch pad and pencils on your desk, and pause regularly to apply color to the paper. Flirting with strangers, taking care of plants and critters, and vacuuming out your car all count. Or how about remembering where your ancient collection of CDs is kept, and remembering how much you love music (and not depending on a streaming service to hear it — there is a difference). If you play a musical instrument, dust it off and put on new strings, and come back to it every day. The world you want to indulge is the nocturnal one. Whether your preference is for day or night, the dark side is your creative, playful and erotic one. It is fair to say that you’re a different person when the Sun goes down, and that is the creature that you want to feed. The past couple of years have been harder on you than on most other people. You are feeling the mental stress and exhaustion. Rest alone will not get you back to a balanced place; expressing yourself will help. Over the next few weeks, reading and writing are essential. Reading includes what you’ve written. Almost everyone has access to their old emails — go back two years and study your sent mail folder. Get a sense of where you were at in all areas of your life. As for writing, now is the time to journal out what you’ve lived through. If you are finding it difficult to write, you need to do so all the more. The idea here is to create feedback loops so that you may be in closer contact with yourself. This will help you stay positive and process any mental blocks and negativity, and keep moving. Life will never “be the same again,” though you will love the ways in which it is different.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 22) —  If you don’t know what to think, you are not alone. Yet in order to get a grasp on what is true, you may need to be: in other words, what you determine to be valid is not about what others believe, but about what you figure out for yourself. Your personal understanding of life is not a matter of consensus. It is not a matter of opinion, which can be swayed. Rather, it is the product of your hard work exploring the facts from many angles, and the inevitable growth process that occurs when you make genuine observations and have actual breakthroughs. This is no time to settle for counterfeits of these things. It is no time to satisfy yourself by thinking that as long as someone agrees with you, what you believe is true. Here is some news: the truth is not a matter of belief. It is more about blood, sweat and tears. The truth is a matter of investigating, agonizing and being wrong many times. It is a matter of dismantling all that is false, in order to find the immovable object at the center of it all. This probably does not sound like fun. Yet it’s been the thing your whole being has oriented on for many years. Once you start to approach this place, which is a space of being or state of awareness, you may discover other people gravitating toward you who have been through a similar process. You may find they have independently come to similar observations, or better yet, complementary ones. This feels like ‘agreeing’ though it is substantial — it is homemade pound cake or Bavarian whole-grain spelt bread, as contrasted with the Twinkies that pass for reality most of the time. When you succeed at unraveling the many critical matters you are considering, you may notice that you have the affirmation of your ancestors. They are talking to you from the place of experience. They have seen this all before, and they are neither distracted nor deceived. Yet the journey you are on is yours, not theirs: that path is for your steps alone.

Planet Waves Monthly Horoscope for February 2022 | Go To All Signs
By Eric Francis Coppolino

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 22) — You need a clear space, where you’re free to be yourself. I say this because various personal zones in your chart are rather jammed with activity that seems to be leaving little room for you to be yourself. This may be one of those times when there’s a party at your house and you go out to the park for a long midnight walk, leaving your cat in charge of the festivities. You do have plenty of bandwidth available, in the area of your life where two important factors merge into one: your priorities, and your spiritual connection to the cosmos (or God, your Higher Power, or whatever you may experience). For you, this is territory where you are certain nobody will understand your values or your source of information. This is actually your freedom. Think of this as the place where you don’t have to convince anyone of anything, because they won’t believe you anyway. Ta-daa! You are therefore free. And at the moment this is a vast and glorious space, with your ruling planet Mars making a journey across the Galactic Center. You may think of the GC as a spiritual homing signal, but the catch is that you’re unlikely to consciously remember the things that you learn. This may not matter, as you have still internalized them, though I would strongly suggest you jot down the various things that you suddenly find yourself understanding. Note what feels like a breakthrough. Mars is about to enter Capricorn, which is for you more the mental realm than the spiritual one. You will soon be making important decisions, and you want these to be based on an underlying sense of values. If you know your True North, and know which way you are headed, then you will always be able to orient. As you enter any new territory, remember, your notion of what is true takes higher priority than what anyone else thinks is true for you.

Planet Waves Monthly Horoscope for January 2022 | Go To All Signs
By Eric Francis Coppolino

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 22) — You seem to be at the point where you don’t know what to believe. Yet that does not mean there is no such a thing as the truth, or a true fact, or a falsehood. Get clear about that: sometimes people and institutions lie to you. Sometimes you encounter things designed to confuse you. And no story you tell yourself can solve that problem. One’s mental state puts up a nearly impenetrable filter between themselves and reality. That’s because the mental state synthesizes what seems like reality. At the moment, your mind is very nearly a jumble. The past and the present are swirling along on the same amusement park ride. Your prior moorings for establishing what was true are all but gone. It seems like no two people you know agree on anything, so you cannot exactly support your viewpoint by calling witnesses, though it would not be strictly accurate to say you have a perspective or angle of sight. Further, it’s not easy for you to tell what you’re looking at right now versus what you believed or perceived previously. This is likely to be taking a toll on you, and what is happening today is an extension of what has been going on over past five years. However, the pressure has been increasing lately. What I can propose is that you get out of the mental realm and into the creative realm. Being a consumer of the music or art of others will help a little, though what I suggest is that you give yourself some kind of creative art therapy: work in color, form, sound and texture. You need a way out of the maze of “right” and “wrong.” There is such a thing, and you can apply a rigorous mental approach — that may help. If you’re going to take that approach, I suggest making a list of what you do not know. Yet playing with pastels or drawing pencils on quality paper will help you feel better sooner rather than later.
