If you could travel to the past and kill the baby Hitler, would you do it? Would you stop the Holocaust from happening?
Relax, I'm joking. This week’s forecast isn’t going to be heavy, I promise, although it would be very interesting to hear what you have to say about it.
This week, we'll revisit our past mistakes and find a way to fix it to better ourselves in the future. Mercury will stay in Scorpio from 25th October until 13th November 2016 and it will be in conjunction with the Sun during its first week in the Slytherin house (just kidding).
The hypersensitive Neptune Retrograde will also join the planetary soiree through a sextile aspect with both Sun and Mercury. This ultimate threesome will bring you the perturbed feeling for being such an ass in the past. Some memories will pop up while you're walking down the street, reminding you that you haven’t been a nice person to the people who cared about you.
(Why Taylor whyyyy)
Let's not forget that the New Moon in Scorpio is totally happening this Monday, 31st October, at 1:38AM; just in time for Halloween. (Sorry, I have to include this now because it's affecting this week’s reading) This event once again brings the dark goddess Pluto to the limelight. Since Pluto will be the main influence for your communication style during this encounter, you'll grow careful and suspicious of all the things you hear or say.
As I mentioned last week, Pluto makes rebirth a scary process since it will force you to face your utmost fear to resolve your past issues. So it's not enough for you to be nervous to be reminded of your mistakes, the New Moon in Scorpio will suggest you to start making amends too. New Moon is a great time to start cleaning your house and clear away the negativity; only this time, we'll use its transformative energy to clear our heart from grudges. Text your enemies or your ex-best friends, let them know how sorry you are for what you did or what happened a few years ago, and ask them out for coffee to catch up on life.
If you notice, this week's reading seems similar to last week's Tarotscope. It's because the Sun and Mercury are in conjunction aspect, so the energy is diffused between the two great planets. Thus, with the New Moon in Scorpio, it won’t be easy to keep Pluto’s life-changing energy from affecting our life.
Our mistakes made us who we are, indeed. But if you can amend your faults for a peaceful future, will you take it? To do this, we may have to swallow our pride and let our heart take control of our throat chakra. It’s not easy to say “sorry”, especially if we know that who we are right now isn’t who we are a few years ago. But hey, saying sorry won’t hurt. If it doesn’t work well, you can always cut them out of your life (again)
Now let's go back to the one-million-dollar question, would you or would you not kill the baby Hitler?
Scorpio (Oct 23 - Nov 21)
Five of Wands - Strife
If you want a longer nap and a moment to snooze around in your PJs, I’m glad to announce that that lazy time is coming soon. Some of your projects are reaching its end, conflicts in your relationship are resolved, this is the time for you to enjoy a little pick-me-up. Isn’t it nice to feel accomplished? To feel the sun shining on your face again? Rest well, Scorpio. Enjoy a week off to celebrate your birthday. Invite your friends to make fun homemade margarita recipes, dress up your dogs in a pair of swagger hoodies for a snuggling session, or treat yourself to a shenanigan day in IKEA, 500 Days of Summer style.

Sagittarius (Nov 22 - Dec 21)
Princess of Disks
Find a way to communicate with your family better, dearest Sagittarius. You may not get along well sometimes (well, duh), but something is going to happen this week that will bring everyone closer. Appreciate them more because blood is always thicker than water. Maybe arrange a nice gathering once in a while? It’ll be great to catch up with your long distance relatives too.
Capricorn (Dec 22 - Jan 19)
Six of Cups - Disappointment
There are some days when you don’t like to take no for an answer, and this week is just one of those days. Your hard work and your plan have been under appreciated by your boss, so you decided to rebel against them. Be patient, Capricorn. Don’t ruin your chance and your good reputation. This time, good things come to those who wait.
Aquarius (Jan 20 - Feb 18)
Eight of Wands - Swiftness
When life gives you a lemon, make some lemonade! You don’t have to wait until your life crash to make your way out. Start applying for jobs before you quit yours or decide what to do once you’re single before you break off your relationship. It’s all about the preparation before the D-Day, Aquarius! Be that Rachel Berry for your own real life audition for a better result.
Pisces (Feb 19 - Mar 20)
Four of Wands - Completion
We don’t find strength in someone’s weakness, Pisces. That’s just not how the world goes round. Rather than trying to see how cool we are compared to other people, why don’t we compare it to our past self? I bet who you are today have grown so much since 2014. Be happy with your positive progress, celebrate who you are today, and don’t forget to smile! :)
Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 19)
Six of Disks - Success
You can do anything you want if you put your heart and mind into it, Aries. You can even turn water into wine for your house party. I’m kidding. All I’m saying is chin up and don’t give up! A little perseverance goes a long way. Since we’re playing the long game here, try not to rush for a perfect result. It takes time for the Universe to work its magic. Be patient and do your best.
Taurus (Apr 20 - May 20)
Looking for a way to cheer yourself up? It’s not wise to indulge in things that only give you a momentary euphoria. Whether it’s alcohol, drugs, video games, or hanging out with a fun, bt toxic friend, this habit will only cause you pain once you’re done. Why not find a healthier/safer way to shoo Sad Sally away? Like picking up a hobby that will inspire you to create new things, for instance.
Gemini (May 21 - Jun 20)
Before pointing your finger at them, try to look at your issue from a different perspective. It may or may not be their fault until proven guilty. If you want to resolve this, remember that things are heating up between you and your peers because of a ~trifling speculation~. It’s best for both to cool down before you try to talk things out, or before making this into something personal.
Cancer (Jun 21 - Jul 22)
Three of Wands - Virtue
Dear Cancer, let’s get to know the real you. You know, the one who lives behind the smiling masquerade. Acknowledge the pain inside, maybe take a break for the weekend to pamper yourself. If you feel like lying down and crying, go ahead. You don’t always have to be strong, especially when something troubles you so much.
Leo (Jul 23 - Aug 22)
Two of Disks - Change
With too many decisions to make, particularly this week, you have grown unconfident about the direction of your life. You make good money for yourself, but at the same time, a tiny part of you is waiting to be liberated. Can you find a balance to quench your curiosity without jeopardizing your current career/study or work life balance? It’s your call, Leo.
Virgo (Aug 23 - Sep 22)
The Hanged Man
You don’t like what’s going on right now, but sadly there’s no other option for you here, Virgo. Sometimes you have to work with someone who keeps you from fulfilling your true potential. Forcing yourself to negotiate with them will just drive you crazy. You know what, let them have their own medicine. If anything happens, you’ll just be here sipping your tea and watching them beg.
Libra (Sep 23 - Oct 22)
Finding the right solution to achieve your goals has been a pain in the ass, particularly for the indecisive Libra. All options seem too good to be true. Oh no what should I do? Take a deep breath and change your perspective. Don’t aim for perfection, aim for the one option that is more efficient in both time and energy. Give your plan a room for error to maximize your progress.
