Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 22) — You have time to change your mind about a few things. Thanks to the recent brief experiment of Pluto in Aquarius, you have broached some emotional topics that have long been out of your grasp. You have learned enough over the past two months to give you not only plenty to think about, but the awareness that it’s time to think deeply and make some decisions.

Most of these involve your family and how you respond to their influences. You may be discovering how much their idea of you has been internalized. Once an emotional pattern is part of your makeup, those who were initially involved have little role in changing it. It’s easy to make the mistake of thinking that they must change in some way, or make amends, so that you can have access to your own thoughts and feelings. No matter what their agenda — whether now or in the distant past — you’re truly on your own. Yet many before you have been through the territory of inner reclaiming.

So, not really alone, but needing to work out this mystery of how to rectify having had your inner reality “peer pressured” by people with the “best intentions,” who might even love you. This is about something else. The fundamental question is: how do people get power over you? Why and how does that keep happening? You might say that they convince you of something, though it’s something you already believe. This can be confronted logically. One experiment that might help is to make a list of everything you believe about yourself, and your abilities. Then slowly, thoughtfully, account for how you got to that particular opinion. Remember: the goal here is freedom.

Your 2020-21 Scorpio Astrology Studio:

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 22) — Scorpio is an emotional, fiery water sign, usually represented by a creature of the desert — the scorpion. But it’s a desert creature that resembles lots of critters that live underwater, as if the ocean dried out and the scorpion stayed behind. Note the contradictions: fiery water, ruled by a land creature. Of all the animals to have as your totem, the scorpion is by far the oddest of the lot, and we can be sure that the ancient masters of lore had a perverse sense of humor, or were keenly aware of human nature.

The 8th sign of the zodiac: Scorpio.

Scorpio is an odd hybrid, both a product — and an instigator — of evolution. In plain talk, that means growth. You tend to push the people around you. And you tend to feel pushed, both internally and by your circumstances. Your sign is associated with sex, deep commitment and death, and that’s what you remind people of, even if it’s on a subtle level (it’s probably not). This has an influence on the people around you, all of whom think you’re ‘intense’.

You probably detest that word, and likely think that you’re normal and they are missing something. Maybe you don’t have a fever; maybe their body temperature is 88 F. Speaking of fevers, you need water, literally and figuratively; as emotional as this sign is, it can be mentally fixated (usually, on the psychology of others) and can appear to have trouble grounding in the realm of feelings. That’s a kind of illusion. You might cover your feelings, you might cover your vulnerability. But when you go deep, you really go. And when Scorpios get detached from the feeling realm, that’s when they can live up to their dangerous astrological reputation.

It’s vital that you not only think before you strike, but that you feel before you speak. Other people have feelings; you need to be reminded of this and spend time listening to the ones you care about. Express empathy as a conscious choice and invite people in with your famous capacity to keep a secret. This said, the passions of Scorpio are unparalleled, and people crave you as much as you crave them. Give them the space to desire you.

Your sign is the one that rules over the sexual organs, deservedly so; it is also the sign associated with death and transformation. You love the idea and the experience of surrender perhaps a shade more than you love control. It’s healthy for you to let go; pay attention and you will figure out that jealousy is your best teacher.

Scorpio is a fixed sign, of the element water, traditionally ruled by Mars, and in modern times by the potent anti-planet Pluto. To understand yourself better, study both of these planets. These days most astrologers forget (or pretend) that Mars isn’t involved. It is — and if you’re curious about astrology, start there.

  1. Great piece Eric- as to the remembrance that Mars still has an influence on the sign, it took me a few years to finally get it. As a Scorpio male astrologer (non prof’) I would often fail to really consider that point, and focused almost exclusively on Pluto, thinking Mars almost irelevant, much to the detriment of both the chart interpretation and to my own understanding of a chart. It took your reminders through your articles to finally stop me doing that, and I now consider Mars and Pluto as two sides of the same Scorpionic coin. Cool and thanks.
