Lucky dates: 1st 9th and 20th
Planetary retrograde activity is at one of its high-spots of the year now. However, for Scorpio the main impact is on the retrograde activity of Venus, Jupiter and Pluto, your three special planets. Pluto, your ruler represents personal desires, Venus rules the love life, and Jupiter your finances. Prosperity will still happen albeit slowly, as Jupiter is still travelling with Pluto. When Venus starts to move forward on the 25th your love and romance life will improve. You can make good use of this downtime to review your ‘Book of Life’, to see where progress can be made. We have two eclipses this month, however, with the retrogrades, the changes happen with a delayed reaction. The Lunar Eclipse (5th) occurs in your money sky, so your financial planning needs fine-tuning before any action is taken. The Solar Eclipse of the 21st also affects Venus so spend more quality time with loved ones. It can also bring spiritual changes in your practice and teachings. Mars your health/work planet affects job changes with your present company or a new one. However, home, family and emotional harmony are still the most important things in your life just now.

All About Scorpio
If you were born between 23rd October and 21st November, then you are a Scorpio star sign.
Scorpios are definitely charismatic, but that doesn’t make them easy to get to know, and this sign likes it just that way! In many cases, this air of mystery, just makes them more alluring to would-be partners.
This star sign craves power and being in control. Luckily, they have a highly tuned intuition, which they are not afraid to rely on. Which often lets them understand people very well. This same trait often lets them sniff out others vulnerability, and a Scorpio is not afraid to use this knowledge to manipulate a situation to their advantage.
Of course, the saying goes ‘a sting in the tail’, which is often associated with the Scorpion icon. It is odd then, that when a Scorpio triggers this action, they often cause self-destructive damage to themselves at the same time!
The ability to get inside the head of another, so to speak can be useful to them, especially on the work front. This sign is also highly tenacious, never giving up, despite setbacks. They have a very strong will and resilience envied by many.
Many a relationship will not recover from the Scorpios sting. Their obsessive and almost compulsive tendencies can make them unattractive and difficult to get along with.
Sometimes Scorpios are quite moody, and their desire to control others often needs reigning in.
Scorpios are hyper self-critical; they need to learn to dial this back to be truly happy in life.
It is difficult to change the mind of a Scorpio, but being too rigid in their thoughts and opinions will win them little favour at home or at work.
This zodiac sign is very slow to trust, but when they do, if this trust is broken a Scorpio will feel wounded for a long time. They struggle to let such things go, and as such, they carry past hurts and experiences into the future. Which is particularly damaging when meeting new people or embarking on new relationships.
Relaxing is not something that Scorpios are great at, as such stress can build up in their lives leading to illness. But on the whole are more likely to be prone to accidents from fast living or sporting adventures on holiday and the like, than they are to suffer illness.
Scorpios intuition definitely carries over into their leisure activities, they may very well be interested in magic, mystical practises the occult and so on. In terms of sport, they often turn to Martial Arts practices, as well as all water activities. This sign favour IT, and so will be very into technology and gadgets. They do like to improve themselves, so studying and reading etc will still be considered leisure rather than work pursuit for them.
Jobs that are related to water are high on the list, but also professions that involve understanding human nature. Like being a counsellor, or psychologist, teacher, investigator, researcher or even working for the police/military.
Careers that allow Scorpio to lead a team are a great choice. They are calm especially under pressure, and are able to tackle and solve difficult problems.
Scorpios will expect loyalty from their team members, but they will treat them and their families well in return. They will be competitive, even as head of the team. Failure is not an option – they will take it personally!
Whilst Scorpio isn’t exactly mean, they also don’t have a what’s mine is your attitude either, whether with a partner or family. When it comes to money, self-preservation is their motivation. They definitely believe in saving for a rainy day and are most comfortable when things are on an even keel financially with well thought out plans.
It is not unheard of for Scorpio to take high risks from an investment perspective. But at the same time, they seem to have a knack for reading the situation, and often come out on top. Which is probably just as well, as they can spend lavishly when the mood takes them.
This sign in the zodiac can be magnetic, they are strong, and their intense brooding looks are appealing to many.
However, it can be very difficult for someone to penetrate Scorpios hard outer shell. They rarely want to let another know what they are thinking, much less feeling. This sign loves passionately and strongly and can experience searing jealousy.
When Scorpio finally commits to another they will be deeply attached. They may demonstrate quite possessive qualities. They will however still want to keep their emotions in check out in public.
This is a faithful sign and loyal, and they will expect the same in return. They show tenderness but are not as romantic as such.
For good zodiac compatibility, signs to consider are Cancer – they are different but in a complementary way to Scorpio. Pisces is very happy for Scorpio to take charge. Taurus and Scorpio make for a very sexy and passionate union indeed, but they are quite similar, so there could be rocky patches.
Two signs unlikely to go the distance long-term are Libra – primarily because their life goals and belief systems are fundamentally too different to Scorpio. Then Gemini, this union may work at the beginning, but eventually, Gemini will feel too stifled.
