Although we’re wrapping up Libra Season, the Sun moving into Scorpio on October 23, we just had a Libra New Moon, which will create some complexities in the coming weeks. Scorpio has depth to Libra’s surface, an emotionally intensity to its polite charm.
When you dig into things, Libra and Scorpio aren’t too far off the mark from each other. Libra talks about relationships in general, from the people we attract into our lives to the way in which we socialize. Scorpio takes the relationship one step further into intimacy, emotional connection, and even sexuality.
One of the things I mentioned in my review of the Libra New Moon was that we’re taking an unflinching look at our relationships this lunar month, especially the controlling, abusive, seductive, addictive, and toxic ones. Every sign has a high and a low side, a light and a shadow. With the planet Venus in Libra coming up on a square to Pluto, we’re going to be looking at the shadowy side of Libra this lunar month, hence a peek into the darker shades of relationships.
We all have lightness and darkness within. Sometimes we have to acknowledge the dark and make a decision what we want to do with it. Keep pretending it’s not there or work to heal and transmute it? It’s a choice. And it’s the work we’ll be doing into November.
