Active dates: 10.22 through 11.22
Welcome to Scorpio season, the month of erotic depths. Scorpio is all about transformation and passion. Scorpio isn’t afraid of the dark, and doesn’t shy away from kink. As we move into Sun-in-Scorpio season in the midst of multiple planetary retrogrades the cosmos invite us to look inward toward our own alluring, perhaps unexplored, shadows. You may discover deep wells of intuition and fantasy. Leverage these energies towards pleasure.
Scorpio season kicks off amidst Mars retrograde in Aries (until November 13th) and Mercury retrograde in Scorpio (until November 3rd). As with most retrogrades this time is well-starred for reflective inner-work, and Scorpio’s inner landscape is deep, complex, and sensual. It’s a good time to flirt heavily with any taboos that intrigue you. The name of the game is self-pleasure; listen to yourself as you would your most precious lover.
Of course, Scorpio loves partner play, too. So, if you’re currently engaging with lovers outside yourself, whether it’s in person, facetime, or the sext realm, center your pleasure and your fantasies this month. It’s a good time to consider sharing those taboos you’ve been flirting with.
The full moon in Taurus on Halloween is an excellent opportunity to cleanse and charge your sex toys in the moon’s glow. Place them on a windowsill and let the moon work its magic. This moment is also ideal for exhibitionism fantasies (being watched through the window, getting caught in public, exposed partner play in nature, etc) and costume play.
The Scorpio new moon on November 15th is a fruitful time for erotic journaling, ritualistic self pleasure, and clearly naming pleasure intentions.
Your horoscopes below are sign-specific invitations to discover the unique qualities of your own erotic depths. Try incorporating the affirmations into self play rituals or meditation practices. Make sure to check your Sun (identity), Mars (passion), and Venus (love).
