Scorpio (October 23 – November 21) Monthly Horoscope
Scorpio is the eighth astrological sign in the Zodiac. It spans the 210–240th degree of the zodiac, between 207.25 and 234.75 degree of celestial longitude. Under the tropic zodiac, the sun transits this area on average between October 23 and November 22, and under the sidereal zodiac, the sun currently transits the constellation of Scorpius from approximately November 16 to December 15. Depending on which zodiac system one uses, an individual born under the influence of Scorpio may be called a Scorpio or a Scorpion. The symbol of the scorpion is based on Scorpius, a giant scorpion sent by Gaia to kill Orion. The Libra-Scorpio Cusp is said to last from October 23 to October 28.
You’re in an enviable position as 2017 begins. Mars, the planet of action and ambition, will move into your sign for the first time in nearly two years and will remain in Scorpio until March 5.

Now will be your time to begin any project that is most important to you. You’ll have an unbeatable drive and stamina to ensure it succeeds.
Watch your forecast for this month from Maria DeSimone below!
As you push ahead with muscle and might however, you may need to be extra patient in the communications arena. Mercury will travel retrograde from January 5 through January 25 and it won’t be a good idea to sign contracts, purchase a car, computer or other appliance during this time. Wait it out. Instead, keep asking questions, doing research and mulling ideas over in your head quietly.
By the end of the month, you’ll be ready to make a move. After January 25, you’ll be in the sweetest position to negotiate any deal in your favor. Also, a gorgeous Full Moon in your career sector on January 23, suggests that somehow, someway, you’ll be in the spotlight for an achievement.
