Sun in Scorpio 2018
The Sun goes into Scorpio on October 23rd, 2018 and it’s time to get down to business. You cannot be scattered or defocused with your energies now. Instead, you’ll need to put your attention into what’s most important.
Scorpio is the strongest sign of the zodiac – a survivor. Scorpios have huge resources of inner strength that can see them through the most difficult challenges in life.
Scorpio follows Libra. Libra is all about connecting with people, relationships, pleasure, enjoyment, harmony, balance, seeking compromise. Scorpio is the stark opposite. It is about looking inside your relationships, facing your fears, your demons, the darker side of life.
Libra is all nicey-nicey, sweetness and light. Scorpio is direct, almost blunt and delves into the unseen.
Scorpios absolutely hate it if you try to keep a secret from them. Even if you are just teasing, they’ll prod you and prod you until you do tell them what is going on. The reverse however, does not follow. If they have a secret, there is no way they will tell you about it no matter how hard you push.
What does the sun’s transit through Scorpio mean?
The sun is in the zodiac sign of Scorpio from October 23 to November 22, 2018. What does this mean for your horoscope?
In the northern hemisphere the sun’s transit through Scorpio is the time of year when all that has bloomed in spring and summer begins to decay and fade away. The streets are covered in yellowing leaves and everything returns to the earth to be reborn once more come spring. You too can experience a powerful transformation during this transit.
It’s no accident that Halloween is celebrated during the sun’s transit through Scorpio (find out the best Halloween costume for your zodiac sign). That’s when the veil between light and dark - what is visible and what is hidden - is at its thinnest. We honor that by dressing up in scary costumes to honor the unspoken side of life. Try to do the same with your life by looking at things you’d rather avoid. Like your fears. Or certain truths. Facing what scares you only makes you more resilient and that’s a trait that Scorpio possess in abundance. We all have Scorpio somewhere in our horoscope. Time to become a bit more like Scorpio.
During this transit of the Sun in Scorpio, this is a time for you to look more deeply into your life. Shine a light on the things you have been avoiding. Maybe you’ve been hoping and hoping that your finances are going to improve, but you haven’t really sat down and looked at the reality of your situation. Do you need to consolidate your debts? Do you need to get a new accountant? Do you need to sell and downsize? Are you really aware of where you money is going? Do you have a strategic plan to make more money? Wherever this transit of the Sun in Scorpio falls in your birth chart will show the life area that is being triggered.
What to Expect with Sun in Scorpio 2018
This is a time for reflection, for thinking more deeply about your life and the direction you are going in.
Scorpio doesn’t miss a trick. If you know a Scorpio or you are in a relationship with one, you will know that nothing gets past them. They are wonderful observers and they will catch you out on a lie in an instant! They love to get to the nitty gritty of life. No skating on the surface as Libra is inclined to do – Scorpio says ‘let’s go deep’. This includes intimacy, sexuality, spirituality, the meaning of life.
Scorpio loves to strategise. This is a great time to look at all the things you’ve been avoiding. Maybe you’re energy hasn’t been very good lately. Are you eating the wrong things? Are you eating in a hurry? Are you eating when you are feeling emotional and thereby suppressing your feelings? Do you need to go and get a medical check-up?
Be prepared to look at the unpleasant side of life. It’s a bit like cancer. When you catch it early, it can be successfully removed. If you leave it too long, it can become terminal.
Scorpio is a serious sign. It rules surgeons, blood and guts, surgical instruments, morgues, cemeteries and many of the things we’d prefer to avoid. However, we live in a world of polarity: there is the good, the positive, sweetness and light, but we also have wars, hatred, depression and sadness. Without ugliness we wouldn’t know beauty. Without darkness we wouldn’t recognise the light.
Think of this period as a purging time. When you truly face your fears, you liberate yourself. For example, a 65 year old woman had a tremendous fear of heights all her life. She had a terrible time flying, going in elevators and even driving over a bridge. During a strong Scorpio transit of her chart, she decided that it was time to face this fear and conquer it. She booked a trip with her friend to the Yucatan peninsular and she forced herself to climb all the way to the top of a pyramid. And she did it! She felt on top of the world after this experience and it freed up so many other areas of her life that had been stuck.
When you free yourself of a big fear or phobia, other areas of your life can open up for healing as well!
Scorpio represents the phoenix, the ancient symbol of death and resurrection from the ashes. You too can rise above your limitations and restrictions during this transit.
Scorpio is very loyal and those born under this sign don’t give up. Make sure you aren’t giving up too soon. Keep asking yourself: what else do I need to know? What else can I learn from this? If you can’t think of anything straight away, come back to it repeatedly and don’t stop until you’ve uncovered everything.

Where does Scorpio fall in your chart? That’s where all the action is.
Wherever it falls in your birth-chart will show you the area of life you need to focus upon. If it’s in your 4th house, you may need to look at family patterns of behaviour and how they are affecting your life today.

If it falls in your 6th house, it’s time to take a deeper look at your health. In either the 1st or the 7th houses, it’s your relationships. Maybe you need to let go of a relationship that you’ve been working on for a long time but nothing is changing. Or, maybe you need to go more deeply into certain issues and stick with it until you find a resolution that works for both parties. (Check out the 12 houses in astrology to find out more)
