Scorpio Career Horoscope

October 2020

by the AstroTwins

Power down, Scorpio. Not only is the Sun in Libra and your restful twelfth house until October 22, but Mercury, the planet of communication and technology, will turn retrograde (backward) from October 13 to November 3—and for most of its backspin, it will reverse through your sign. Lay low until at least October 27, if not for the whole month. Do some work behind the scenes, finish half-done projects, and reconnect with helpful people from your past. You’ll have a clear slate for November, then you can really power ahead.

As the saying goes, “It’s who you know.” And that rings true for the rest of the year starting October 4, when your ruler, powerhouse Pluto, ends a five-month retrograde through Capricorn and your communication house. If you’ve been navigating power struggles and tense interpersonal dynamics, that should clear up. And as Pluto travels alongside lucky Jupiter and structured Saturn, writing, teaching, or media projects could thrive. Team up with people in your network and see what you can cook up together!

Scorpio season begins on October 22, revving up your energy for a month. Just hold off on any launches until Mercury turns direct November 3. A Halloween full moon in Taurus will activate your partnerships sector. Yet another spike of dynamic-duo energy could arrive when you least expect it. Stay open!
