Despite being the spookiest season of the zodiac, the sun's shift into Scorpio goes far beyond its Big Witch Energy. Governed by shadowy Pluto, Lord of the Underworld; the planet of death, secrets, taboo, transformation, and everything that's hidden beneath the surface, your Scorpio season 2020 horoscope is all about embracing your shadow side. Although, with Scorpio's celestial ruler, Pluto, sitting alongside Saturn and Jupiter in structured Capricorn, something's bound to come to light... but at an even larger scale.

On Oct. 22, at exactly 6:59 p.m. ET, the sun wraps up in justice-seeking Libra, and takes a deep dive into the underworld in Scorpio. At this point, Libra's harmony-seeking vibes take a backseat, allowing smoldering Scorpio to take the lead. Keep in mind, this fixed sign's traditional ruler, Mars, is still retrograde in Aries, but will finally station direct on Nov. 13.

Mercury retrograde reenters Libra on Oct. 27, which is the same day coquettish Venus makes its debut in its sign of rulership. Both Venus, and the messenger god, will eventually square off with Jupiter-Saturn-Pluto, and this will likely influence relationship dynamics. Mercury will station direct on on Nov. 3, before reentering Scorpio on Nov. 10, so pay attention to your surroundings and think before you speak. There will be a lot of emphasis on news, messaging, and general communication during this time.

As you may have probably heard by now, there will be a rare blue moon on Halloween. Glimmering through the sign of Taurus, sitting alongside rebellious Uranus, so it's safe to say this year's All Hallows' Eve will be more tricks than treats. Lucky Jupiter will join forces with Pluto for a third and final time on Nov. 12, which can be incredibly beneficial for cultivating ambition, and aspiring toward your long-term goals. On Nov. 15, the sun and moon will unite in Scorpio for a powerful new beginning, before luscious Venus inspires the collective to merge with another mind, body, and soul in seductive Scorpio.

Here's what Scorpio season has in store for you, according to your zodiac sign:
