It’s that spooky time of the year again, everyone. Get your costume game strong and your fake blood on because Halloween, my favorite holiday, is here!
Halloween celebration falls at the same time as the New Moon in Scorpio, bringing you a purging vibe that will clear out the bad mojo within you. Although I kinda hope it can help to clear out my acne, but I guess this is okay too.
Did you know that Halloween was traditionally known as the Samhain, an ancient Celtic festival, marking the end of summer and the beginning of winter. It is a night when the veil between our world and the spirit world becomes thin, allowing the spirits to travel into our living room. So if you feel like someone is whispering in your ears although you knew there’s no one there, please know that you are definitely not hallucinating.
Errrrr. Sorry this time I’m not messing with you. :)
Okay, let’s talk about the New Moon in Scorpio that falls on the same day as Halloween. Each New Moon is an opportunity to review and renew ourselves. Let's look back at our deeds since the last New Moon and find the things that we can improve until the next Full Moon. I’ve written a bit about aspects to look forward to in last week’s Tarotscope, but this week we’re going to discuss another side of it.
The New Moon in Scorpio gives you a chance to recalibrate your social life. If last week’s article discusses bringing the old flame back through apology, this time we will focus on our inner circle. If you’re unsure whether you must keep a certain friend in your life, then the answer is probably a “no.” Remember, “quality over quantity” is your motto today.
With the Sun and Mercury in Scorpio in a conjunction with the New Moon, you are more likely to keep the decision-making process to yourself. Scorpio is the sign of secrecy and intuition. You’ll experience this battle internally, often not knowing why you should cut off some comrades, but sensing that it may be a good idea for you. The additional harmonious sextile aspect between Sun and Mercury with Pluto, Scorpio’s ruler, in Capricorn, will also cause you to be wise enough not to air your dirty laundry in public. This is between you and them, hence asking others to cheer for any of you will only turn your exit into a big hoo-ha.
The New Moon in Scorpio may not be your favorite New Moon, since Scorpio is known to revolve around death/rebirth topic. But if we don’t start shedding toxic relationship around us, we may not be able to move forward and meet those who will help us grow. Besides, goodbyes do not have to be definitive. You two might see each other again when both are finally on the same page to support each other. Who knows? ;)
Scorpio (Oct 23 - Nov 21)
Nine of Cups - Happiness
Dear Scorpio, you are in the process of finding yourself again. There were so many things that happened in the past few months that made you feel like you’re not in control of who you are. It’s either you gave yourself too much or you take too much, whichever is enough to make you feel uncomfortable in your own skin. Find yourself by spending more time alone. Make your own decision – small decisions such as which drinks you’d like to order on Happy Hour, whether you should swipe right or left, which mall you should go to today – without anyone else influencing you. Most importantly, put your happiness first before others’.
You should listen to:
We Are Young - Fun
Sagittarius (Nov 22 - Dec 21)
You don’t wait for an opportunity. You chase it, you grab it, and you score it. Luck is handed to those who know where to find it. So if you’re looking for the lady luck to help you advance your financial situation, well, good luck to you. You gotta work your way up and prove your boss/client that you’re worth it. Unless you’re born with a silver spoon, try harder.
Capricorn (Dec 22 - Jan 19)
Four of Cups - Luxury
Find some time to focus on the little things that you have postponed in your life, whether it’s taking your pet to the vet, updating your resume, or replying to your ex’s text. The more you put things on hold, the more it adds up to your stress level, thus affecting your level of productivity. So let’s put the little things to bed and focus on what matters the most.
Aquarius (Jan 20 - Feb 18)
Two of Swords - Peace
You can’t make everyone like you, Aquarius. Even with the sweetest face that you put upfront, there will still be someone out there who hates your smile. It’s okay, don’t force them to anyway. If anything, I’ll say, good riddance. Find your tribe and thrive with them instead. Oh and what about those haters? Stay in touch with them if you can, but know your limit.
Pisces (Feb 19 - Mar 20)
It’s a wild world out there for Pisces and it takes great courage to step out of the comfort zone. But how can you have the courage boost if life is holding you back from moving forward? Well actually, nobody’s been holding you back. You just need to convince yourself that you can tackle all the challenges without breaking a sweat. #nobigdeal
Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 19)
Queen of Disks
So here’s what’s going to happen, Aries. Someone from the past will rise to the surface reminding you of the bad deeds you did. Your first reaction is to bury it deeper than before, but sadly now is the time to face the music. If there’s anything that you want to say, either an apology or a statement, tell them right here right now. Don’t let it pass. Again.
Taurus (Apr 20 - May 20)
Five of Disks - Worry
If you want a happy ending, you can start by letting things go. Do not, I repeat, do not try to control everything in front of you. Some things are better left alone, especially if it’s beyond your control. You can always try to manage the things once the biggest storm has passed. Inhale the peace and exhale the worry. Let the Universe sail your ship this time.
Gemini (May 21 - Jun 20)
Ace of Wands
You want it all, Gemini, I get it. From a salary raise, expanding networking, and even a day to focus on your love life, everything seems within reach. However, too much multitasking will lead to a massive breakdown for your health. Rest well and don’t push yourself too hard. You need sufficient energy to conquer the world by yourself. Right?
Cancer (Jun 21 - Jul 22)
Seven of Swords - Futility
You don’t need anyone to tell you what to do because this time you want to do things your way for once. Although this is a good independent attempt from you, you can’t carry all the weight on your shoulder by yourself. If you can share it, why shouldn’t you? Your friends/family would love to lend a hand if they could and be there for you during this trying time.
Leo (Jul 23 - Aug 22)
Congrats, Leo! This week you are showered with golden opportunities in different aspects and you’re ready to start your days under the sun. So why are you worried that things wouldn’t go well? Hey, hey, hey, don’t think about the future if you haven’t even started the present. Things are going to be okay. And if they aren’t, fuck it, you are born ready.
Virgo (Aug 23 - Sep 22)
Two of Wands - Dominion
You can’t choose which side you have to work on your personal life or your career. Sometimes the line between the two seems blurred because you often mix them together. It’s easy, don’t let your work ruin your personal time and vice versa. Don’t work when you’re supposed to rest and don’t think about what happened at home during working hours.
Libra (Sep 23 - Oct 22)
Look at every pain, every discomfort, from a different angle, Libra. The pain you’re experiencing in your personal life tells you which part you need to heal and which aspect in your life you need to slow down before you crash and burn. Don’t rush. It’s okay to take your time before deciding on anything because uncertainty is often better than regret.
