Unfortunately, speaking of stress, you may be one edge around Saturday, October 14, which brings a new moon and solar eclipse in Libra and your heady 12th House of the Unconscious. You’re sleepy and not the best communicator around this time. Just be honest with people about that, and don’t feel guilty about putting off social plans to catch up on sleep. Your birthday season is about to start, as are Halloween parties, and it’s best to get your rest in while you can.
It’s okay if you want to have a chill year when it comes to birthday parties. Sometimes, Scorpios want to bask in the spotlight. Other years, they prefer to hide inside (with a cake still, of course). You’re a water sign associated with transformation; you change your mind, and that’s okay. When the divine messenger Mercury enters your sign, Scorpio, on Saturday, October 21, it’s important to check in with yourself about how you feel like celebrating (or not) this year. You can always change your mind, but this transit just wants to help you avoid feeling either burnt out or ignored by giving you what you want. And you can’t tell your loved ones what you want until you figure it out.
But regardless of whether you opt for quiet nights with lover(s) or a big, sparkly 90s-themed bash, make sure to acknowledge the start of your season, Scorpio, on Monday, October 23. Happy solar return! Everyone has to give you their full attention now. Well, to be honest, Halloween may steal your thunder for a few days, but it’s mostly still about you. Just know, not to stop you, but to prepare you, that before you go partying for Halloween or your birthday, there’s a drama queen of full moon and lunar eclipse in stubborn Taurus on Saturday, October 28. As a result, there might be bickering around you on this date, as such cosmic events can make people feel petty. But, if you make like an eclipse and act like a drama queen, excusing yourself from any arguments using Scorpio season as an excuse, all you’ll do tonight is have fun and serve looks. And, by the way, since it’s your season, the Pagan name for the holiday we celebrate as Halloween is Samhain, pronounced sow-in). So happy, Samhain, and we’ll see you in November.
