Life's mysteries come into focus when the Sun moves into intense Scorpio. This Water sign is the detective of the zodiac, digging beneath the surface and uncovering hidden secrets about ourselves, others, and the world at large. This is a time when we'll want to shine a light into the shadows so that we can transform one another with the truth.
Halloween, All Saints Day, and Day of the Dead all take place under the influence of the Scorpio Sun -- and that's no coincidence! The veil between our world and the realm of spirits -- both visible and invisible -- is said to grow thin during Scorpio season, heightening our ability to connect with those who have passed. This is why we're especially drawn to all things spiritual and otherworldly while the Sun is in Scorpio.
When the Sun is in Scorpio
We'll all want to go undercover when the Sun shines on sexy Scorpio! Discover how you can embrace all the energy of this transit:
What to do:
Snoop! Scorpio wants answers, and the only way to get to the bottom of things is to ask a lot of questions, keep your eyes and ears open, and investigate everything (and everyone) around you. If you've wanted to find out the truth about something, this is the time to do it!
What to say:
Something intense and from the heart. Passionate Scorpio is known for having extremely strong feelings even though they keep them hidden deep down inside. Don't hold back when the Sun is in Scorpio -- say something deeply moving to someone you love.
Where to go:
A museum full of peculiarities, a haunted location, or even the cemetery. Scorpio is ruled by Pluto, the planet of sex, death, and the afterlife. This is the perfect time to explore the mysteries of the underworld and the unknown.
What to wear:
Dark sunglasses. Scorpio's eyes are the gateway to their soul, and while they are all-seeing, they don't always like letting others get a peek into their own souls. Cover your eyes with some shades and go incognito.
What to buy:
A good spy thriller, a detective movie, or maybe some binoculars. This will help you indulge Scorpio's love of mystery. Or, maybe just buy some fancy lingerie you can keep a secret from everyone -- or share with someone special.
What to watch out for:
That Scorpio stinger! Scorpio is calm and collected on the outside, but they have a smoldering volcano of emotions buried inside of them that can explode if provoked. Watch out for feelings of jealousy, obsessive or compulsive behavior, and sneaky stuff happening behind your back.
What to look forward to:
Passion, sex, and intimacy. Scorpio is deeply loving, and very willing to prove it in the bedroom. Because Scorpio is so willing to go deep and expose our most powerful feelings, this can be a time for growing closer in heartwarming (or sometimes gut-wrenching) ways that are truly transformative.
If you were born with the Sun in Scorpio
There's a reason people find you so powerful, Scorpio -- you can do just about anything you put your mind to! Your sign is co-ruled by Mars, the planet of energy and assertion. This gives you a tremendous will and determination that's often hidden below the mysterious surface of you Scorpions.
In some ways, you're one of the most misunderstood signs in the zodiac. Despite coming across as cool and aloof, you're more emotional than most people realize -- you are a Water sign after all. In fact, it could be hard for others to tell how you're really feeling with how well you hide it.
"Va-va-voom" comes to mind when thinking about you Scorpios. You have an air of sexy mystery about you, and a powerful magnetism that attracts people to you almost instantly. It's safe to say that you never have a shortage of admirers!
You are cautious about love until passion takes over, and then all limits are ignored. You aren't one to do anything half-heartedly -- it's usually all or nothing when it comes to your relationships. Extremes of loyalty, commitment, and intensity are balanced against detachment and apparent disinterest. If people want to get your attention, they've got to bring all that they've got. You simply won't settle for less.
You bring the same passion and fearlessness that you have in your everyday life to your work. Your ambition is matched only by your tenacity, and you respect when others put in as much elbow grease as you do. You truly shine in positions where you get to dig below the surface and uncover details that aren't easily seen-- criminals better watch out if a Scorpio is on their case! It's easy to see why many of you end up as detectives, forensic experts, or even psychologists.
Yes, you Scorpios can come across as a little intense to the average person, but that intensity is what makes you some of the best friends a person could ever have. Fiercely loyal, you would do anything and everything for your friends -- and you expect the same in return. If someone's looking for a friend to divulge all of their deepest, darkest secrets to, you're the one they call. Not only will you take their confessions to the grave, but you'll give them the cold, hard truth they need to make a positive change.
What sets you apart:
You can see right through people. There's a reason some people fear the "Scorpio Stare." Your sharp intuition helps you see -- almost immediately -- someone's motivations, secrets, and intentions.
