Scorpio Sun & Rising — Monthly Horoscope & Sign Description

Scorpio Monthly Horoscope for April 2020


Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 22) — Your chart is the perfect setup for an unnecessary panic attack, or overdoing your concerns with safety and security. This could lead you to place your needs above those of others. That might work in a “take care of yourself so you can take care of others” scenario, in which case the idea above would not apply. You’re likely to make your choices based on your fear level, and the astrology describing that — Saturn in Aquarius, joined by Mars in Aquarius — may have you edgy, and also aggressive about getting your needs met. I would place this on top of a long list of things not to fall for. Your tendency to be reactive has a readily available alternative, which is to be a benefactor. To access that angle, it will be necessary to know when you’re feeling fear, and then to acknowledge that and sort out what is actually going on. Now is the time to think about the present and the immediate future. It’s also a good time to consider how much others have done for you: what they have offered you, how they have helped you, and what they have meant to you. You might pick up the phone and make thank you calls when you remember what a positive influence someone has been. Then, I propose calling people you care about and finding out if there is any way you may be of assistance. Scroll through the contacts in your phone. Pay special attention to people like nieces, nephews and ex-lovers. The way to be of assistance is to first ask what someone needs, and listen to them for a while. Then select one or two ways you can offer something that will make a difference — and follow through immediately.

Sign Description for 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.

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 antiplanet 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.
