The Sun enters Scorpio on October 23rd (7:22 AM EDT). Now we arrive at the season of darkness, intensity, obscurity and truth.
In order to get to the Scorpio gold (which is raw truth and courageous intimacy) you have to go deep- you have to face the taboos, the secrets, the ugly stuff. You have to experience and accept powerlessness, and through this, gain an understanding of your own power. Often what’s revealed is not pleasant, so “gold” may not seem like an appropriate word. But the highest version of this energy is pure intimacy (complete merging with another) and/or the absolute knowledge of your own Shadow. When you face down your demons, there’s nothing left to undermine you.
Scorpio energy can be vicious and destructive when misused. Or, it can be profoundly loyal and completely accepting of what terrifies and repels other people. It’s never superficial. It is associated with death, but often it’s a metaphorical death – the complete ending that must happen before you can transform yourself and your situation. Then, you rise up stronger than before.
This is the season to get real, but not in the same way as the Earth signs. Scorpio-real is profound emotional honesty, which includes all the messy, passionate “too much/too heavy” feelings.

I’ve combined today’s daily transit post with the Scorpio ingress, because they are directly connected.
Today’s opposition to Uranus Rx in Taurus will define this Scorpio season because it’s the first major aspect and occurs on the ingress. The bolt of Uranian clarity will manifest as disruption for some (disruption of power or secrets) and complete realization for others (the deepest “a ha”). The opposition can be a result, ending or delivery from an external source. Whether it’s a dark suprise or light illuminating the gloom, know that it will be the truth.
The October 24th Full Moon will carry this forward.
If you want to know more about Uranus’ transit of Taurus and how it might apply to you, I’ve written a downloadable PDF that you can purchase, here.
Also, the Sun makes an inconjunct to Juno Rx in Gemini, so a sub-theme to this reveal may be a glitch in the details of a new relationship agreement. The necessity to look behind the scenes for answers (or intimacy) will have to be adjusted with certain facts- there’s an incompatibility here involving truth and intimacy.
Interestingly, the Scorpio Sun will aspect Uranus and Juno Rx again towards the end of Scorpio season (see the list below) but this time the inconjunct will be to Uranus Rx in Aries and the Sun will oppose Juno Rx in Taurus. Now, the Sun’s dark spotlight will illuminate what lies beneath surface security (and rigid habits) of a relationship, and this will have to be adjusted with an agitation for freedom. Note that Uranus and Juno are both Rx, so these issues will not be new.
Overall, this Scorpio season seems to be about the truth behind an agreement/contract you’ve made. You’ll look at it from multiple angles. Remember that Scorpio starts out with secrets and obscured (occult) information, but if you dig deep enough (and you’re brave enough) you’ll arrive at the truth.
