Oyster Horoscopes: Your Readings For The Month Of Scorpio (October 22 - November 22)

You're just so predictable.

Hey fam! It's time to read up on what the universe is going to throw at you this month in friends, love, work and play. Is your bae gonna text back? Will things be chill with your crew? Are you gonna get that raise, or better yet find 50 bucks on the street? Find out courtesy of astrology queen Jessica Lanyadoo below.

ARIES

Body Matters:
You've gotta have a reason, Aries. In our world of running around with our heads in code, always connected by our devices, it's easy to forget what your body is for. Your health and your looks are not the same, Puppy. You are not a breathing IG account. If you are only trying to manage how your body look­s and not how it feels and functions in a real way, you're gonna be bummed. The end of October brings with it lots of opportunities to be annoying with your bod or to embrace it and give it what it needs. Be a body to your buddy, brah.

Social Scene: 
The October half of Scorpio season may find you wanting to hide out and take a break from people. Don't be shy to indulge your need to be chill because it won't last long. It's good news for your social life when Mars enters your house of community on the 8th. Go out, meet up with bishes, and be open to adventure because it's likely to come your way. The only word of warning is to be honest, Aries. The truth will have a funny way of coming out this season, so for a smooth ride, lead with it, lover.

Workspace:
Work your buns off until the 9th of November, and then reconnect with your crew, lover. You've got hella ground to cover, and if you get it done, you deserve a well-earned break. You may have to make some annoying compromises around the 28th that challenge your ego; the better shape your sense of self is in, the easier that'll be. Let any dramas that emerge that week be a reflection of what you need to work on in yourself, Aries, and try not to sweat the small stuff.

Love:
At the start of October, it'd be easy to feel like you've got your whole game on lock; but if you let yourself get too cocky, there'll be hell to pay by the 28th. It's awesome to feel yourself, but if you let that distract you from other people's feels and needs, you'll end up pushing the babes away that you most want close. You may be the best (who am I kidding? You're totally the best), but that doesn't mean that you're better than anybody or that your needs are more important. Love yourself without diminishing bishes this month.

TAURUS

Body Matters:
Off and on this month, you're likely to see how your innermost psyche is pushing up against your physical well-being. That doesn't mean that what you're feeling is all in your head as much as it means that you've gotta take care of yourself on all the levels if you want relief. If you're feeling stuck, especially around the 28th and again after the 8th, you've gotta find a way of shaking it off. Use your body as tool for relieving stress. Whether you make it PG or X-rated, it's time to sweat out your troubles, Taurus.

Social Scene: 
The New Moon on the 30th of October is here to help you get real with your fam. If you take the time to invest in your closest and most trusted people around this date, you're basically investing in your own happiness. Your social life is mad important but not more so than your deepest feelings of connection. Things may get weird from the 17th through the 19th; when in doubt, talk it out. Don't jump to conclusions or let paranoia get the best of you, Puppy.

Workspace:
If you've been feeling stuck or unable to see the big picture, you're in luck, Taurus. If you've been trying to keep things from moving or changing, you're gonna be hella annoyed though. On the 8th of November, you're going to be able to put into practice some of the ideas you've been kicking around, and if you don't, you may find that you're irritable AF. It's easy to keep doing your thing, even when you know it isn't working for you; take a chance on yourself, Taurus.

Love:
The New Moon on the 30th is going to be so romantique that you may just get seriously lucky, Taurus. Instead of letting your fears and fantasies get away from you, may I humbly suggest that you embrace a touch of self-love first? Reconnect with the babe that you are and all the best parts of your own sweet self. Being loved is the very best, but it doesn't mean shit if you don't love yourself too. Drop your self-hate at the door and let love in. Use the Full Moon in your sign on the 14th as a time to kick dank self esteem, crappy past experiences, and other garbage you've been dragging around with you in the bin, bb.

GEMINI

Body Matters:
It's time to let go, Twin Star. The end of October is trying to get you to shake loose from the dank habits that you know aren't working for you. No need to look out for surprises — you know what you've been doing that's making you feel off-kilter. You're an odd one, and that's what makes you special! Embrace your uniqueness this month. It'll help you make time for the self-care shifts that you'll need if you're gonna feel more comfortable in your own skin.

Social Scene: 
Bishes may bring you down by acting unpredictable and obstinate in the last week of October, but don't worry it's only a passing fad. If people are really getting under your skin around then, you may need to check your boundaries. If you accept people for what they are, then their actions are not as surprising or as upsetting. On the 12th of November, your social life will pick up, but pace yourself, Twinny.

Workspace:
If you're looking to study something new or deepen your skills with some craft, Scorpio season is going to bring you helly helpful energy to get that done. The New Moon on the 30th may bring with it opportunities, so be open, Gem. From the 12th through the 19th of November, things may feel a bit confusing though, so get as much as you can done before then. If prospects open up in those dates, make sure to scrutinise them. All that glitters is not gold, but every once in a while, a Twin Star gets lucky.

Love:
If you focus on what you don't have, you'll end up in a soup of sadness, feeling stuck. Align yourself with your choices, Twin Star. You got yourself here, and you can get yourself out if you need to. The trick is to not get so distracted by what you perceive other people think, feel, or want that you lose track of what's up with you. On the 12th the pace of communication and connection in your lurv life is bound to pick up, so use the earlier part of Scorpio season to get right with you, lover.

CANCER

Body Matters:
The end of October may bring some dank body feels, but don't worry, it'll pass. The most important thing is that you are nice to yourself, Moonchild. If you're feeling off, it won't help to bully yourself or to stuff your emotions. Listen to what your system tells you, especially from the 27th through the 30th. If you're tired, nap, and if you're hungry, eat. Don't put off taking care of your sweet and salty self, my love. From the 12th of November onwards is a great time to reach out for help (like quitting smoking with a mate!), or kick off a new habit, or self care regime. You've got this, bb.

Social Scene: 
Dates come and go, but your bishes are forever. The New Moon on the 30th can bring about new friendships or a deepening of old ones. Be ready to let platonic love into your life and to take a step back from your bae life to do it. By the time that the Full Moon comes around on November 14th, there may be ruffled feathers to smooth out, but it's worth it. Anything worth keeping is worth fighting for, Cancer.

Workspace:
With Venus in your house of toil until the 13th, you may not feel much like working. If you're gonna flake, the least you can do is be nice to the people around you. You've been kicking ass for a while now, and it's fair if you need a break. Luckily, on the 12th Mercury steps in to give you ideas and speed up your tempo. If you can't vacay this season, I strongly recommend that you plan one. You need a break that feels like a break, my love.

Love:
The New Moon on the 30th is a great time to go dancing, flirt your buns off, or rekindle your sexy times with your longtime love. You may be feeling a lil' lazy around this date, but there's so much lovey energy for you that it'd be a shame not to access it. Plus, you're gonna need it after the drama vibes that are likely to hit you around the 27th. Here's a pro tip for this month: mean what you say, say what you mean, and when you can't do that, don't say a durn thing at all. How you participate in love is all about you, Moonchild. There's love all around you — let it in.

LEO

Body Matters:
If you're wiling to face facts, you'll find it way easier to respond to the needs of your body, Leo. The truth is that you've changed; what you used to want, what used to work for you, what felt dank or dope are different than they used to be. Be open to revelations about what's right for you around the 28th of October and then again around the 7th of November. The way you look, the way you feel, and what you need isn't static; you are growing and changing, and it's not downhill. Instead of holding your body up against what you think it "should" be this season, support its needs, Kitten.

Social Scene: 
You can't control what other people think of you, no matter how well you curate yourself on social media or how much you rein in how you act. You can lose and you can straggle behind, and that doesn't mean anything about you; those are only your circumstances. Don't confuse where you're at with what you are, and you'll be able to rise to the occasion and deal with your fam solidly. Don't let your ebb or your flow define you, Ma.

Workspace:
Get ready for meaningful change, Leo. Around the 28th of October, something unexpected is gonna pop up. Instead of preparing an attack plan or trying to prevent upsets from happening, get really clear about what you need. Is it money? Respect? Happiness? I mean, you likely want all of that and a crown befitting your glorious head, but more specifically, try to identify what you need most based on your present circumstances. The Full Moon on the 14th is going to feel a lot more graceful if you know what you need to let go of so you can get where you wanna be.

Love:
Your sign loves nothing more than some positive reinforcement, and a little sweet talk can go a long way. There's nothing wrong with that, until you don't get it, that is. The last few days of October may bring you a bit of sads because you're not getting the love and attention that you want. Don't worry, though, because it'll pass quickly! More importantly, it's an opportunity to see how dependent you are on your ego getting stroked to feel OK. The amount of likes you get on a selfie has no direct correlation to your value, steeze, or happiness, Leo.

VIRGO

Body Matters:
If you're not speaking up for yourself and saying what needs to be said, you may have some actual physical discomfort this Scorpio season. Around the 25th of October and again the 18th of November, you're on call to face some awkward truth that you'd rather evade. Step up, Virgo! If you're especially sleepy or have any respiratory problems around those dates, it's your body asking you to speak up. Start off by working it out in your Dear Diary and facing facts 'cause you love yourself. It's totally worth it.

Social Scene: 
When the people around you are cutty, it's easy to take it personal, but it's likely to have nothing to do with you, Virgo. Don't pick fights that you're not ready to follow through on. Have one-on-one QT time with your cuties after the 12th, and reconnect with your friends about the real stuff that's going on. If people aren't available, don't take it personal. This is also a great period to make your home extra lit. Invest in what you've got, and don't make assumptions about what you don't.

Workspace:
Expect the pace to pick up at work after the 8th — for better or for worse, Virgo. Your opportunities and workload are likely to increase in keeping with your sense of ambition, which is chill; but if you don't like what you're doing or the people you're doing it with, you may feel hella agitated. You alone are responsible for what you do, so don't let your reactions or your ego knock you off course. The people around you may be especially flakey or unpredictable in November, but don't take it personally. Bishes don't always know how annoying they are.

Love:
This month is a roller coaster in the love department. The last week of October may bring you some real surprises. Whether you meet someone new, have a random fling with somebody who's totally not your type, or revisit an ex you barely ever think about, the work is the same: don't count your chickens before they're hatched. This is an awesome time to strengthen your sense of self, and it'll totally pay off by around the 12th if you do. The more whole you are, the happier you'll be; the happier you are, the easier it is to let love in.

LIBRA

Body Matters:
With Jupiter in your sign, this can be a great time to set off on a healing journey and get results. If you do things that build up your strength or overcome a deficit, it'll work. On the flip side, if you indulge crappy habits or let your hedonism overtake your life, you'll be surprised at how quickly that shit goes rouge on you. Identify motivational carrots, and then be a good bunny and race towards them, Libra. You don't need to make sacrifices as much as you need to invest in the right goals.

Social Scene: 
Even though you've been in a heavy place with friendships in some ways, it's also brought you closer to the babes that you can trust. Real friendship takes work sometimes, and if you don't resist the work, that's not a bad thing. Show up when shit gets real, even if you'd rather hide under the covers about it. If you get too nervous about what others are feeling or are gonna say, then you're likely to get paranoid and shady. Put on your big kid pants, and deal with your weirdness head-on this month.

Workspace:
You've got to know the difference between an ideal and a solid potential. This month, you're gonna have hella harebrained schemes masquerading as lit ideas. Know your needs, desires, and your resources, Libra. You may have the right goal in mind but an unrealistic path forward to get it. Commit your plans to ye olde pen and paper; the act of writing things out will help you to separate the BS from the inspired, bae. Once that's done all you can do is put one foot in front of the other, and make it work.

Love:
On the 8th you can expect things to get helly sassy or irritating, Libra. If you and bae aren't doing creative and fun stuff together you'll feel frustrated with them and are likely to feel annoyed, but this Halloween season it's important to remember that ghosting is for kids, Libra! Show up and be real with people about what you're feeling or what you need, even if it's hard. The key is to do something that's entertaining and leaves room for heartfelt connection this month.

SCORPIO

Body Matters:
Be on the lookout for accidents and frustrated energies that leak outta your bod during the end of October, Scorpio. Instead of ignoring your feelings and the needs of your sweet, sweet body, make it your goal to check in with yourself and treat yourself like your own bbf — with love and care. You need to slow down and prioritise healthy habits before your bad ones get the best of you. In November there are good vibes to help you maintain whatever you started earlier in the season, so kick your birthday month off right.

Social Scene: 
Happy Birthday, babe! It's your season, and everything is coming up you. Have a party on the 30th with the New Moon to celebrate your fam. You've got homie magick this season, and part of that is about investing in the people who hold you up. Chill time with your friends will feel great until around the 8th when Mars and Venus change signs. You're either gonna want to either hide out or be anywhere but home, but strive to be balanced.

Workspace:
It's not supposed to be easy, but what you do now in regards to your career is gonna stick this season. Don't take short cuts because all you'll end up doing is creating unintended consequences that you have to deal with later. The last week of October is all about making connections, and the rest of Scorpio season is about following through. This isn't the time to drop the ball, my friend. Create the conditions you believe you can thrive in, even if you have to suffer fools to do it.

Love:
Your values are being tested and you need to step up your game, Scorpio. You may be nasty, but you're also romantic AF; your ability to be able to really feel people is a strength, even if it's one you hide from bishes. This month your heart may be extra tender, and if you can own up to it that's a very good thing. If you don't feel safe in your lover life you may end up being shut down and weird, though. It's far better to hold out for something you can trust then to attach to the first fool you get a hold of. Be brave, lover.

SAGITTARIUS

Body Matters:
The Full Moon on the 14th might give you a tummy ache. You've been putting off your self-care in efforts to get your other goals advanced, and it's time for you to rein it in. You've been gathering hella data, but what of it are you not digesting? Whatever you've been trying to skip over is likely to set in your body and will demand your attention when the Moon gets bright. Listen to the wisdom of your physical self instead of pushing down symptoms or imagining that your meat suit is just a costume and not what it truly is — your teacher, 'Tari. #truefacts

Social Scene: 
October 24th through the 30th is likely to show you who your true friends really are, and while that may be a bitter pill to swallow, it's better to face facts. From November 14th through the 20th, it's a great time to connect with your friends and have chill times. If you find yourself feeling lonely or going through some sads, make sure to reach out to your most supportive loves because frenemies will get under you skin and make you feel worse than usual that week. To quote Michelle Obama: "When they go low, you go high."

Workspace:
The New Moon on the 30th will bring either new opportunities or new insights into your career life, Aquarius. Your path is irrevocably linked to others, and the sooner you work with them to firm up your plans, the more gracefully you'll be able to execute them. Make sure to protect your work/life balance, and if that's not possible, warn the folks closest to you that you plan to be cray le cray for a little bit of time. On November 8th Mars enters your sign, and that'll speed things up and help you get them accomplished. Don't waste your energy on impatience; it's all coming together, bae.

Love:
If your love life isn't quite working for you, you're gonna have to face facts this month. Watch the shifts of the Moon, because when it's New on the 30th you're gonna have some insight or change of heart that you could overlook, but really shouldn't. By the time la Luna gets full on the 14th of November you're gonna have to see if you can live with your situation, and if your heart's not in it, (spoiler alert), it'll suck. Honour your feels, even if you wish they were leaning in a different direction.

CAPRICORN

Body Matters:
If you don't value your physical well-being, it's really hard to keep your health up. Be on the lookout for something coming to a head around the 28th of October that may be annoying but is trying to get you to r(e)focus on your health. The absence of problems is not the same as the presence of enduring health. Bring your wellness to the next level, lover. You deserve to have health that builds on itself, instead of only doing damage control when things go sideways.

Social Scene: 
On the 11th of November, the planet of lurv enters your sign and that means that everything's coming up Cappy. Reach out to friends and be open to new connections. This marks a sick time for parties, shopping, art, and love; so sharing that stuff with your homies will make you all kinds of happy. Be wary on the 27th through the 30th of October, as you may be feeling especially impulsive and defensive. If you need a break from people you should take it, or you may end up throwing out some cutty vibes.

Workspace:
Sometimes life is like a game of dodge ball; you've gotta catch what's thrown at you, or you walk away feeling battered and bruised. There's helluv opportunities coming your way, but you have to know which ones are worth your time and which are distractions for your long-term best interests. Make friends with your ego, Cappy. If you try to repress it, it'll slip into your blind spot, and if it's overactive you'll just be a dick. Create the life you want to live instead of the Instagram feed that you want your life to look like.

Love:
The Full Moon on the 14th will bring up so many feels about your love life, but don't act out, Cappy! Let your feelings percolate and settle before you draw any conclusions or even make any bold proclamations. If you overextend yourself you're likely to end up feeling exhausted and taxed by people instead of inspired and happy. When sweet and loving Venus enter your sign on the 11th you may find that you want to be accommodating instead of authentic, but don't give in; be real and you'll get real results, bae.

AQUARIUS

Body Matters:
It's an exciting time for you if you're willing to change; this Scorpio season is going to bring you opportunities to get to know and love yourself in truer, deeper ways. It's awesome. If you're trying to keep things on the surface, you may find that you're irritable and creaky feeling. So deal! Look in the mirror, and embrace your weird bits, your zits, and your vulnerabilities. Improve your ways today for the life you want tomorrow.

Social Scene: 
Don't let your ambition throw you off of your need for fam, my love. Your impulses are all over the place, and you may be running on steam in the first half of Scorpio season. Make the most of it by stepping up your social media game, so you can stay in touch with your friends without having to connect IRL. Don't worry that you're turning into a hermit though because from the 8th onwards you may be more motivated to run around town with your bishes. Find ways to show up that are true to where you're at, bb.

Workspace:
Let the inspiration come on in, Aquarius. The New Moon on the 30th may bring you insights or opportunity, or if you're magic is extra sparkly this month, you'll get both. Make use of the potential in your work life by staying humble. Whether you need to work smarter not harder, or it's time to kick some ass, it's on you to follow through. Success isn't one size fits all; tighten up your vision for what you really want, bae.

Love:
Assert yourself but not so forcefully that you push others away. Unless all you're trying to do is get yours, you need to compromise and include others in your process, lover. You're figuring out what you want and need, which is le dope, but that doesn't mean that you can make executive calls on what others feel or need. Share your progress with others, even if you're not certain of where you're at.

PISCES

Body Matters:
If you've been fighting off fatigue, it's not for nothing, Pisces. This Scorpio season is bringing up so many thoughts and feels that your system may start dragging. Don't ignore your needs, my sensi friend. Take disco naps whenever you feel a need for them, guilt free. Sensitivities aren't liabilities as long as you accept and support them. Work with what you've got this month, even if your body needs extra attention and care from you.

Social Scene: 
Don't jump to conclusions! If you feel like your babes don't like you, you're likely to get hella paranoid from the 24th through the 30th of October. Just wait for the New Moon on the 30th before you decide what they meant when they said that thing or looked at you sideways. From the 11th onwards, you have access to love that holds you up, so reach out to the people you love and trust the most.

Workspace:
While your self-esteem may be in the shitter off and on this month, it's still a lit time for advancing your goals, Pisces. If you're trying to get a raise, finish a thesis, or make connections that'll bloom into a new chapter in your professional life, you're in luck. From the 8th onwards, your instincts are especially good, and from the 12th onwards it's a great time to connect with others. Don't overextend yourself or sell yourself short, Pisces. You've got hella gifts. Take risks and share them with the world.

Love:
At both the start and the end of Scorpio season you'll have to contend with questions of boundaries, Pisces. Just because you love a bish doesn't mean that you owe them everything. It's OK to love with limits, and around the 1st of November you're likely to have someone model what that looks like. Having boundaries basically means that you're being honest about what you can and can't do. Love yourself in equal parts to how you love your bae this month.
