Hey Libra, it’s been real, but this week we hang up the scales, and transition to a much more decisive sign. Exacting Scorpio is not one to mince words or linger over alternatives.
Spooky babes, it’s your time to shine, or, better said, slither out of the shadows like the eldritch creatures that you are. Scorpio, Halloween becomes you. You can be scary, especially when you’re mad. And you’re particularly fearsome now, with the Sun, Mercury, and Mars all conjunct.
Mars rules Scorpio in traditional astrology, giving its natives a big boost of energy, passion, and drive. This, coupled with Mercury’s clarity and mental acuity, means if you’re a Scorpio you could accomplish anything you set your mind to during these transits, which is truly a terrifying thought.
My advice right now to all who have Scorpios in their lives is to tend that friendship carefully. If you’re not close friends, still try to stay on Scorpio’s good side. This is especially true for Aquarius, Gemini, and Pisces, who are prone to hyperbole, half-truths, and blatant dishonesty. Beware: Scorpio knows when you’re not telling the truth. And this sign glorifies honesty over most things, including your feelings.
One message from this Aquarius to all the Scorpios out there: when you take over the world, which you will inevitably do, keep in mind that I was rooting for you from the start.
