Scorpio season is telling — not asking — you to come to the dark side
A new month is a new opportunity to recalibrate and settle your bones. It’s when we have a fresh start and a new energetic cycle to grow and bloom with. But there’s something different about November. Once we enter Scorpio season — which lasts from October 23rd until November 21st while the sun is in Scorpio — we look to the darkness, to our mysteries, to our depths. There’s no denying it; the energy is heavy and the seasons are turning. Scorpio season invites us into this matrix, one where we can continue to discover who we are, release shame about our darkness, and reclaim our relationship with money.
Scorpios may have a bad rap because of their sexuality and intensity, but there’s plenty to be said about someone who doesn’t hide their true selves; especially when their interests could be considered taboo. This same energy is prevalent during Scorpio season. As the nights get longer and we’re thrust closer to the winter solstice, the longest night of the year, we’re able to meet ourselves in a more honest place.
As darkness lingers, we’re led back into ourselves.
It’s cuffing season. I mean, who wants to go out when the wind is biting and there are scary movies to watch, blankets to snuggle under, and cider to drink? This is the time of year when we naturally draw inward, kind of like animals that hibernate! And seeing this as an opportunity to reconnect with ourselves is vital.
Scorpio season asks us what our needs are and then it asks us what our needs really are. Scorpio is ruled by the planets Mars and Pluto. Mars rules over energy, action, and war, while Pluto rules over sex, death, and transformation. Seeing where you hold shame around these issues can help you figure out what you need to heal or work on. Try taking a bath with salt, flowers, oils, and candles to ground this energy and reconnect with your body. Journaling, guided meditations, and therapy are other ways of working with this intention and energy.
