October 2020 Scorpio Career Horoscope

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 will ring 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 and 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! 

Key Dates:

October 7: Mercury-Uranus opposition
This first of three face-offs between the messenger planet—in your sign—and transformative Uranus in your dynamic-duos realm could reset the terms of an important partnership or force you to reconsider a deal you’re negotiating. It’ll happen again on October 19 (with Mercury retrograde) and November 17, so if you can stall until after that final hit, you’ll have a lot more data and insight to make an informed decision.
