October 2011 Scorpio Love Horoscope

Shifting into high gear

There are some major shifts going on in your personal life this month. The key players are Venus, Mercury and the Sun, each of which enters Scorpio in October. Loving Venus is languishing in the obscurity of your 12th House of Privacy until October 8, but then moves into Scorpio and your 1st House of Personality. This is excellent for feeling more desirable and sociable. It puts more grace in your behavior and more charm in your appearance. The seductive side of your personality can work to great effect because you only have to send out subtle signals to let someone know that you're interested. 

On October 13 mental Mercury follows suit, which should help you speak up more openly about what you want and don't want. Then, on October 23, the willful Sun strides into your sign to put more shine on your personality during the following 30 days. There's an increasing sense of power that enables you to express yourself with ease. This transit also gets you more attention, whether you're looking for it or not. 

However, your traditional ruling planet Mars spends all of October in your 10th House of Career, which can load you up with professional obligations. If you're under pressure at work, try not to let any competitiveness there spill into your personal life, making you act aggressively. On October 26 the New Moon in Scorpio puts wind in your sails. However, its opposition to expansive Jupiter stretches your expectations, which is helpful as long as they're reachable, but can lead to disappointment if you go too far.
