The Sun enters Scorpio at 3:52pm AEDT on Saturday 23 October 2021 bringing a new layer of intensity into our lives. We are more likely to express our feelings about inequality, injustice, and unfairness (Scorpio Sun conjunct Libra Mars), whereas we may stay silent at other times. This solar shift will intensify your feelings about these topics.
The current tension around vaccination status is a good example of this dynamic. Most of us cannot bear imbalance. And that is what we see developing in our community because of the new regime. Making different rules for vaccinated and non-vaccinated citizens excludes some members of our community from social connection.
When Mars enters Scorpio at 1:21am on Sunday 31 October 2021 these concerns are likely to deepen and bring up strong emotions. As the tension grows, anger, jealousy, and resentment will intensify. An air of mystery or secrecy may develop, to hide what is really going on. Personal relationships could go either way with Scorpio Mars. You might feel more passion and craving. Or you could become oversensitive and put up a cold front to keep people away.
Relationships and business partnerships improve
Significant changes are likely when the Sun and Moon conjoin for the Scorpio New Moon at 8:15am Friday 5 November 2021. On the same day, Venus moves into Capricorn at 9:44pm. For the next 3 months, relationships will be more business-like because we will take responsibility for our actions and commit to partnering with respect. Venus will retrograde during her passage through Capricorn. Check out information about this significant event in next month’s update.
