From October 23 – November 21, Scorpio season is in full swing. Considered the most brooding, sensual, and intense zodiac sign, Scorpio may have us all just a bit out of sorts. So never fear if you’re feeling a bit more contemplative, intuitive, or even downright paranoid. We just transitioned from fun-loving, easy going Libra to a season of focus, decision making, and serious soul searching.

Personality

Scorpios are often defined by an extremely passionate nature. As a water sign, they are ruled by emotions and possess a very powerful intuition. If a Scorpio has a bad feeling about something, it’s best to heed the warning and turn the other way. This sign is not afraid of change either. A Scorpio adapts well to new situations and personalities.

They know what they want and possess a strong drive to achieve. This hardworking nature makes Scorpios well-suited leaders, business professionals, and entrepreneurs. On the other hand, these qualities may also manifest as an overbearing or controlling nature if their stubborn drive to achieve takes over. Likewise, arguing with a Scorpio may be frustrating or even fruitless: They have a skill for looking at things from every angle and working circumstances to their benefit. They are opinionated and willing to take a strong position on issues.

In relationships, Scorpios are sensual, seductive, and emotional. They long for deep, soulful connections with others. Guarded at first, once you earn their trust, they demonstrate unparalleled empathy and commitment. Also be aware of their truth-seeking nature and jealous tendencies though. People of this passionate sign will stop at nothing to hang on to what they value.

Follow Scorpio’s Intuitive, Introspective Lead

We can all learn from the intuitive nature of Scorpio. She is one who knows and trusts her inner voice. Hone in on your intuition during this season and learn her voice. Whether it’s knowing what restaurant you want to visit or deciding whether to pursue a relationship, work to trust your instincts during this season of Scorpio. The more you tap in and trust that inner voice, the more you will hear and be confident.

All of this inner reflection may have you questioning many things in your life. Beware of making major decisions right now. Instead, gather information and make a list of pros/cons to mull over before you rush into anything.

This focused solar cycle is also a great time for research or detailed work. Pick up a project you’ve set aside and you may be surprised at how focused and productive you feel. You can also harness the exotic power of this season. Be creative and surprise your partner by spicing up your bedroom routine. Use this time of transformation and discovery to breathe new life into your relationships.

It’s also natural to feel a bit more introspective now. Take some time to get to know yourself on a deeper level. You may discover dreams and talents waiting to be realized. Reflect on these stashed away feelings and contemplate how you can bring them into the forefront.

The Solar Plexus Chakra

The predominant chakra for Scorpio is the solar plexus, with the sacral chakra coming in at a close second. Located in the center of the belly, the solar plexus connects you with the energy to take action. It is the seat of your self confidence and expressing personal power. Additionally, the solar plexus governs your relationship to the world around you and your beliefs about your place within it.

A healthy solar plexus chakra honors emotions, understanding, self-confidence, and personal power. When out of balance, you may experience fear of rejection, over-sensitivity to criticism, feelings of lack of recognition, fear of change, lack of direction, and low self-esteem.

Crystals and Stones

Choose stones that support the solar plexus and those that harness the determination and drive of Scorpio. Hematite is especially helpful for grounding and balancing emotions. Check out these Magnetic Hematite Marbles or Hematite Eggs for a simple way to carry this grounding stone!
