October 2017

Jupiter moves through Scorpio October 10 - November 9, 2018. Jupiter is expansion and opportunity, but Jupiter is usually concerned with outer expansion such as exploring the world or just overdoing it at your favorite shoe store. While Jupiter transits fixed water sign Scorpio, we are compelled to explore our inner lives and needs. Many of us will come to terms with that which motivates us to establish our dearest dreams. Our emotional bodies are sure to grow in one way or another and for many of us, we will go after our goals with gusto and in some cases, vengeance.

Those of us who gave up on love and intimacy will have a revived optimism and once again open up to the possibility of finding true love. Since Scorpio is a sign of transformation we will undergo healing and changes within ourselves that takes us to new levels of life. Remember, though, Scorpio is not a carefree sign. Scorpio takes us to new levels of life through trials and tribulations.

All or nothing is sure to be the motto as we know what we want and go for it with gusto. Just be sure what you want is good for you in the months ahead.
