Scorpio season 2022 activates deep spiritual transformation which is quickened by the powerful Scorpio solar eclipse. This means that several elements are at play during this highly charged season.

The harmonious balancing act of airy Libra season 2022 has been the perfect energy to help prepare us for the intensity of the upcoming astrological weather: the metamorphic Scorpio season avec solar eclipse! Scorpio season 2022 is an invitation to deep dive into the zones of shadow, taboo, and self-transmutation and transform the areas of our lives that need it the most. 

Scorpio, which is the Latin word for scorpion, is the zodiacal archetype for sex, death, and rebirth. In other words, this serious archetype beckons us to embark upon the journey into the mysteries of life, taboos and spiritual transformations through deep and intense experiences. Because Scorpio is a water sign, the zones of profound emotions and their potent energies are key in the transformational process. 

A fixed sign ruled by both Pluto (modern ruler) and Mars (ancient ruler) Scorpio is concerned with the hidden, the deep mysteries and the alchemical process of the soul’s journey. The planet Pluto, embodies the universal life force which destroys and resurrects. The planet Mars, the archetypal warrior which pushes forward in order to accomplish. Work with both to kick some serious ass this Scorpio season! 

Ruler of the eighth house of sex, death, and rebirth, there is an emphasis this month on looking at all things hidden or taboo. From sexual connections, spiritual connections, and healing transformations, Scorpio season 2022 merged with the solar eclipse will be burning down what is no longer needed in your life only to have a stronger and more powerful version of yourself emerge. It’s time to rise up like a phoenix out of the ashes!


The scorpion emerges from its rocky hideout on October 23 and continues moving through the spooky season until November 21. The Scorpio New Moon on October 25 also happens to be the same day as a solar eclipse. Potent! Eclipses in astrology, in this case a solar eclipse, hold powerful energy that helps to quicken or accelerate any intentions made under that aspect. If you harness this energy for spiritual transformation, sit back and watch the results! However, the powerful nature of this alignment can do some MEGA shifts, so be mindful of what your intentions are.
