October 9th – Venus moves into Scorpio
Venus moves into Scorpio where it will stay until November 2nd. Under this influence, and depending on how this transit affects the other planets in your chart, you won’t fall into love, you’ll crash into it. When you relate with someone, you’ll do so with gusto and passion, with the depths of your heart and soul. At this time, there’ll be no lukewarm or halfway for you in this department. You’ll give your all, and frankly, there’ll be some people who just can’t take it – that’ll be their problem, not yours, and you won’t let anyone make you think otherwise. You won’t hold yourself back. During this period, focus on romancing and socializing with others who relish in your intensity rather than being ashamed or frightened of it, and you’ll find much happiness and satisfaction in your relationships. Your connections to other people will run so deep that you’ll feel very vulnerable, and besides that, your feelings will get hurt easily. With this influence your self-protection mechanism can make you rather shy and reticent about expressing your true feelings and warmth. Just remember though, this influence only lasts a short period of time so make the most of it or otherwise remember it will be over soon!
Famous people with Venus in Scorpio are: Matt Damon, Leonardo DiCaprio, Snoop Dog, Teri Hatcher, Kate Holmes, Hugh Jackman, Jay-Z, Avril Lavigne, Demi Moore, Nelly, Ozzy Osbourne, Nicole Richie, Meg Ryan, Winona Ryder, Alicia Silverstone, Ashlee Simpson, Usher, Denzel Washington and Tiger Woods.
October 11th – Full Moon in Aries
The Moon will be Full at 18 degrees Aries. During this Full Moon, you may see some of your efforts beginning to pay off. You could receive recognition for your spirited, enthusiastic preliminary work on recent endeavors. Your leadership qualities may also be commended for rousing the troops in an effort. However, in your desire to be the head of the pack, you may run into resistance from others who believe in group consensus. You might need to be more of a team player. You can’t really run a show without the crew on your side, so you’ll have to balance your need to be the head honcho with a cooperative spirit. Try not to have any temper tantrums when you don’t get your way, or are challenged by dissenting views.
Your energy level may be quite high during this time. Romantic activities can be very passionate if you keep your lips and hands busy! You are likely to take decisive action. If you’re not getting satisfactory results, consider what you might need to cut out. Think about what you need to lose in the process of moving forward. As the moon begins to wane, you may need to let someone go who is no longer needed on a project, or maybe tossing out some excess weight that is keeping you down. A strong backbone is needed not only for expanding projects but also for trimming down.
October 13th – Mercury moves into Scorpio
Mercury moves into Scorpio where it will stay until November 2nd. Under this influence, and depending on how this transit affects the other planets in your chart, your mind may work like a steel trap — steady and strong. Once you latch on to an idea or a process it’ll be hard for you to let go. This influence is great for research, investigation, and any type of detective work. You’ll be able to follow clues that no one else will even notice, hints that will lead you to the bottom line and the ultimate truth. At this time, you’ll be able to tease out facts and bits of information, intuitively grasping what’s important and what’s not. Like a laser, you’ll concentrate on the crucial details and ignore the rest. There will be, of course, a fine line between focus and obsession, a line that you could cross. You’ll be excellent at holding your cards close and you won’t let on that you’ve found something till you can claim it for your own. Under this transit you’d rather not divulge the details or give previews of your projects: your methods will be to do all the work and then spring it on the world all at once. This way, you’ll be sure, your work will be safe from the prying eyes and the minds of others. You may worry that your efforts could be stolen by someone else so you’ll be careful to protect them. You’ll take a rather skeptical view of the world — some would even say cynical. Under this influence, such a negative mindset may prevent you from seeing what’s actually in front of you so take care if this placement forms a hard aspect to any of your natal planets.

October 23rd – Sun moves into Scorpio
The sun moves into Scorpio where it will stay until November 22nd. Under this influence, and depending on how this transit affects the other planets in your chart you may discover the depth of your character is not easily seen from the outside. At this time someone has to get to know you pretty well before understanding your complexity and unfathomable reaches and under this Scorpio influence you may not let too many people in too far. You may find yourself profoundly emotional but cannot express your feelings in their totality as you may think that you’ll blow others out of the water with them. Really, the reality will be that you could refuse to make yourself vulnerable by speaking your truest, deepest emotions. At this time, your focus will be legendary and your willpower extreme. Investigation, research, and history are areas that may hold appeal for you, as well as psychology, where you will be able to use your intuitive understanding of human motivation. Under this influence, the dark, hidden side of things will be appealing to you and you may find yourself relentlessly digging until you find what you’re looking for. Be careful though as that intense focus can easily develop into obsession. The arena of relationships can be quite a minefield under this transit. Each one will be highly charged with your passion, intensity, suspicion, and desire to control. In your heart of hearts you’ll want a close intimate relationship with an equal but your past experiences may have caused such pain that you could decide it’s easier to be alone but one of this transits greatest blessings is to provide the recipient the ability to recover and recoup from loss. Scorpio’s other symbol is the phoenix rising from the ashes.
Famous Scorpions are: Ryan Reynolds, Katy Perry, Keith Urban, Julia Roberts, Gavin Rossdale, Matthew McConaughey, Sean Diddy Combs, Demi Moore, Leonardo DiCaprio, Whoopi Goldberg, Owen Wilson, Meg Ryan and Jodie Foster.
