Scorpio Season is the time to take those skeletons out of our closets and dance with them. Get ready to deal with everything that you’ve putting off, because it’s time to do the work to become a better you.

When does Scorpio season start?

Scorpio Season begins on October 23, 2020, as the Sun moves from more lighthearted Libra energy into the dark and deep waters of Scorpio.

Scorpio is a water sign, along with Cancer and Pisces. So even though this is Scorpio Season, it’s your time, too, Cancer and Pisces. Though Scorpio’s energy is a little different than yours, you’ll still find yourself having to face your feelings. For other signs, like fire sign Aries, and air signs Gemini and Aquarius, not so much.

Zodiac Seasons are determined by the zodiac sign the Sun is currently transiting through. But while each of our individual Sun Signs are defined by the sign the Sun was transiting through on the day we were born, Zodiac Seasons generate a general theme and focus that affect people born under all signs.

Scorpio Season comes immediately after Libra Season, during which we were more focused on friends and keeping things balanced. As we enter Scorpio Season, that focus shifts to more intense conversations, being all in our feelings and living our truth.

Is 2020 a good year for Scorpios?

As it has been for all of us, if you're a Scorpio, 2020 has likely has been pretty rough.

Scorpio is the sign that normally sees the darker side of life, so the pandemic and social uprisings probably haven't been the easiest experiences of your life — but there is a silver lining. This year, Scorpios have come into their own. You’re stronger. You’re feeling more able to deal with the worst-case scenario and come out on top.

As all zodiac signs are now entering into the waters of this deep sign, they'll get to reap the benefits of those hard-learned lessons, too! It’s the perfect time for us all to catch those mysterious, deep Scorpio vibes.

Scorpio is known for being deep, but also for being elusive. There’s something especially interesting and magnetic about people born under this sign. We all want to get close to the Scorpios in our lives during this time. Those who do can benefit from their unique way of viewing life.

During the next month, everything will have greater meaning. We’ll feel like diving into intense conversations, taking that next big step, and feeling more passionate in the bedroom, as Scorpio is all about sex, secrets and seduction.

Adding to the intensity we’re feeling is the fun fact that Mercury Retrograde is currently having his way with us and our lives, and will be until November 3. This means that we’re all reflecting on the decisions and choices we made when Mercury Retrograde was last in Scorpio during October and November of last year.

All signs will be drawn to opening up that particular closet of skeletons and speaking our truth, no matter how scared we might feel about it. This is the power of Scorpio, because if we’re comfortable with our truth, that’s all that matters.

Read on for your Sun and/or Rising Sign's horoscope for Scorpio Season:

Aries (March 21 - April 19)

You don’t have time to feel it, right? Well, get ready to be served a wake-up call from the Universe in the form of a sign you just can’t ignore.

With Mars moving through your sign right now, you’re more ready for a fight than you normally are. Try to control that temper and remember that you can’t take something back once you say it. Even though make-up sex is great, it can be just as hot without having to make up for hurt feelings.

Taurus (April 20 - May 20)

Even though you’re an earth sign, being the ruler of Venus, you don’t mind wading into your feelings, especially if they feel good. That said, be prepared that not every feeling that arises now will be so positive.

If love doesn’t always feel good, then maybe this month is the time to evaluate why. And P.S., don’t try to fix a relationship with sex; it can’t be done.

You have a Blue Full Moon in your sign coming up on Halloween. Hello! Expect some big once-in-a-lifetime opportunities and miracles heading your way.

Gemini (May 21 - June 20)

You don’t have to decide, Gemini. Maybe this is news to you, but you can be both — smart and sensitive, strong and caring, independent and involved with someone you come home to.

You will be asked to face some big truths about how you’ve been operating and why your walls have cost you some of the things you’ve said you want. In terms of love, by the end of November your confidence will wow someone who will challenge you to be vulnerable.

Be prepared — this is all to help you make the most of your Full Moon in November (that’s also a Lunar Eclipse!).

Cancer (June 21 - July 22)

You’re at home in your feelings, but are you comfortable with talking about what is really going on? This dilemma is why even you need Scorpio Season.

Being at home is great, but pretending things are good when they’re not will only hurt you in the end. Be prepared to have some big a-ha moments and even some arguments.

Your challenge? Don’t hide in your shell at the first sight of chaos. Sometimes it ends up leading to bigger and better moments. Also, don’t be afraid to embrace your darker side, especially in the bedroom.

Leo (July 23 - August 22)

Well, you always seem ready to go, don’t you? But this isn’t just about how gorgeous you are or how great of a kisser you are. This time, you’re going to need to use that heart of yours and actually talk about how you’re feeling and what you want.

Don’t worry if it feels like not a lot is going on in your Zodiac sign right now. Sagittarius Season is right around the corner, and with it the chance to live life out loud and on your terms.

Even if it’s tempting, try to stay away from dialing that ex up this month or finding someone for rebound sex. Doing either will only end up making you feel worse.

Virgo (August 23 - September 22)

Let your hair down, shake it out a bit, put on some red lipstick, and forget about all the reasons you tell yourself it won’t work. This is the month it will. But are you ready to do things differently?

Quit doing things the same old way and instead open yourself up to life being so much better (and hotter) when you forget the plans and allow yourself to enjoy what the Universe brings to you.

Sure, you might have to let go of some people that have hurt you and there may be tears, but that’s what girls’ nights are all about. Remember your worth.

Libra (September 23 - October 22)

It's not even your season anymore and you’re still shaking things up, aren’t you? Venus shimmies into your sign right before the big Full Moon at the end of the month, meaning that everyone will be speaking your language of love.

Be careful if things seem too good to be true. With Mercury in retrograde, you may be feeling sparks of what you think seems like forever that will actually die out by next month.

Don’t try to make something more than it is or you’ll be the one with the broken heart. And note that this is the prime time to own that dark sensual nature you hide most of the year.

Scorpio (October 23 - November 21)

Welcome home, darlings. It’s about time, isn’t it? Stir up trouble, make some noise, speak your truth, buy some new lingerie, and forget about everything but that inner truth.

There may be some secrets that are exposed around the Full Moon at the end of the month, but don’t try to diminish or cover them up. Let them come out and let the cards fall where they may.

Be wary of falling in love with someone who is already taken this month, or at least give the other person time to end their relationship first. Don’t worry, though, there is enough enjoyment out there for you, including a surprise encounter in the beginning of November that gives you that fireworks type of moment!

Sagittarius (November 22 - December 21)

You’re quiet and in waiting aren’t you, Sag? Typically happy and outgoing people like you often forget that there’s a whole lot going on in your mind. You’ve been sitting on some truth for a long time, and even though you had planned to speak it later, the time has come to spill the tea.

There is no better time than now and it’s time to stop trying to damn up those floodwaters so much. Feel it all, Sag, and then let yourself get carried away. There’s so much love here for you — so much passion — that you just need to close your eyes and make a choice to say all you’ve been thinking.

Capricorn (December 22 - January 19)

You don’t often get carried away, but when you do, the world had better watch out. You’ve been playing it safe for too long. Now is the time to not just speak your truth but to let go. Do what you want. Love who you want.

Life’s too short, Capricorn, to just stay within the lines when coloring outside them is so much more fun. Enjoy the process and quit feeling badly about what makes you happy, but also quit trying to make work those things which aren't meant to.

Aquarius (January 20 - February 18)

Usually so calm and cool, who has you all excited this season, Aquarius? Maybe you’re not always prone to romance and long days in comfy beds wrapped up with someone you can’t take your eyes off of, but it doesn’t mean it can’t happen for you.

It seems this month is all about feelings and monogamy. Be honest with yourself and your partner about any fears you might have, because it seems you’ve finally met someone worth trying for.

Pisces (February 19 - March 20)

Well aren’t you a happy little fish watching everyone flounder in the energy you live in all the time? You’re more at home here than fellow water sign Cancer because, let’s be honest, you’re a little twisted, but you do it sweetly.

This season has some big surprises and changes in store for you. Just don’t forget to not pull a disappearing act if you get scared or stumble into some feelings that are too big, even for you.

The person who is meant to swim the depths with you will without you having to beg or chase. When you finally see that person beside you, don’t let all the times it didn’t work out be the reason you sabotage this chance.

And don’t be afraid to venture outside of the norm in the bedroom. As the zodiac sign known to be the best lover, you will be at home in the mysterious waters this month brings.

We all get to soak in these Scorpio vibes until November 22nd, when the Sun shifts us into Sagittarius Season.

Now is the time to make the most of the chance to walk on that wild side we often try to avoid. It’s a season for dealing with what we’ve been putting off, spilling the tea and making hard choices, but don’t forget to have a little fun, too.

After all, Scorpio is one of the most passionate signs, so we’ll all be feeling the heat of this intense water sign this month.
