The cosmos are intense ahead of Halloween.
I hope you’re in the holiday spirit, because Scorpio season (AKA spooky season) is now in full swing. While you’re re-watching your favorite Halloween movies, carving pumpkins, and cutting your own fringe, the sun will be continuing through this fixed water sign, highlighting the desire for emotional control, privacy, and unwavering determination. In fact, this week’s astrology is jam-packed emotional ups and downs as a solar eclipse in Scorpio culminates overhead, bringing powerful new beginnings to the forefront for everyone. Later this week, Mars, Scorpio’s ruling planet, will station retrograde in Gemini, bringing forth a period of re-evaluation just in time for Halloween. Your October 24, 2022 weekly horoscope is nothing short of an emotional roller coaster, but not to worry — resolving stagnant emotions is bound to propel you forward.
On Oct. 25, the sun and moon will conjoin at 2 degrees of Scorpio, highlighting the need to release control over things that may be holding you back. As a fixed sign, Scorpio isn’t the biggest fan of change, but solar eclipses indicate the start of a new chapter — so as long as you’re willing to leave what’s no longer serving you behind, this eclipse is bound to bring forth a fresh start.
By Oct. 30, Mars will station retrograde at 25 degrees of Gemini, bringing a period of review to the forefront regarding ideas, tasks, and information until January 13. Since Mars rules Scorpio, this may be a period where you’re called to re-evaluate the themes the eclipse highlighted on Oct. 25.
Here’s what your zodiac sign can expect from this week’s astrology:
