October 2020 Scorpio Love Horoscope

Friendly fire? With vixen Venus in Virgo and your communal zone from October 2 to 27, you could feel sparks with a person in your social circle or someone you meet online. Did you sense a flirty vibe during that Zoom breakout session or from someone sliding into your DMs? See if there’s a live ember worth swiping for—or at least explore whether this person is worth getting to know a little better.
Watch for a critical streak this month with Venus in nitpicky Virgo and the other love planet, Mars, retrograde from September 9 until November 13 in Aries and your flaw-finding sixth house. A misbegotten obsession with “perfection” could derail your efforts as you could find something wrong with everyone. A person from your past could resurface, or you may compare a current partner or prospect to someone you’ve hoisted onto a pedestal. If you never did the necessary “getting over them” process, take a time-out and heal your heart before forcing yourself to open up.
A highlight of your season comes on October 19, when the “benefics,” auspicious Venus (in Virgo) and Jupiter (in Capricorn), form a supportive trine. This is a great day to speak openly about an attraction to someone you’ve only been casual friends with up until now. Or if you’re carrying a torch for “the one that got away,” an authentic convo could help you see whether there’s still potential between you.
On October 27 (through November 21), Venus relocates to Libra AND Mercury retrograde backflips into Libra and your twelfth house of closure. You might feel like just before Halloween, your past is coming back to haunt you. With both of these personal planets in your shadowy twelfth house, there’s no escaping the necessary work of closing a door where you’re hanging onto false hope. Few can obsess like a Scorpio or keep that minuscule spark alive. You hate to completely sever a tie, but this period might help you gently release the past so you can move on.
Speaking of Halloween, this year, October 31 serves up a full moon in Taurus and your seventh house of committed partnerships. With Uranus, the planet of surprises, exactly conjunct the moon, single Scorpios could meet someone with LTR potential out of the blue. Couples can have a make-or-break moment, also quite sudden. While that might mean an unplanned proposal or a startling breakup, it could also serve a moment of authenticity that, while unpredictable, also brings you closer together.

Key Dates:

October 10: Venus-Uranus trine
Today’s spontaneous energy could cause undeniable sparks to fly with someone you’ve just met. Isn’t this what “chemistry” is all about? Don’t think in terms of lifelong commitment. If there’s a strong mutual attraction, why not follow up on it? Attached? Think of your beloved as your BFF, and make time today for long, uninterrupted conversations— letting them meander where they will!
