Hey there freaky Scorpio season! Ruled by Pluto in modern astrology and Mars in traditional astrology. Scorpio energy is cunning, calculating, sensual, intimidating, intuitive, self-reliant, transformational and intense.
As a sign that rules over the 8th house of death, sex, and the taboo they definitely get a bad rap but that’s only because this water sign is capable of extreme emotional depth. The likes of which are rarely experienced by the rest of us who lack prominent water placements. They also don’t shy away from shadow work, in fact, they relish in it despite that it can sometimes have a negative effect by way of subjecting themselves to unnecessary emotional endurance. But this capacity is a major contributing factor as to why Scorpios are so misunderstood and have a bit of an edge to them that gives them the dark senses of humor they are known for and makes them avid participants in the ‘all black everything’ culture. Such a connection also fosters a natural confidence in their sexuality so believe me when I say that if any sign is going to make sustainability sexy…it’s definitely provocative Scorpio. Plus, this season also ushers us into the dark half of the year with daylights savings coming in hot on November 7th.
In the tarot, the sign of Scorpio corresponds to the Death card which at first usually elicits a fearful reaction, but it shouldn’t. As the sign of transformation and rebirth, Scorpio knows that those cycles can’t happen without the death of the old. And of course, it’s no coincidence that within Scorpio season the holidays of Halloween, Samhain, Dia de Los Muertos, etc., take place but notice that these holidays are anything but somber. They are celebrations of these sacred cycles and the integral role it plays in our ability to value and cherish. All of these characteristics and associations are significant contributors to Scorpios color representations of maroon (confidence, sensuality), black (power, protection), and red (ambition, assertiveness) as they all encompass the intensity and sensuality that Scorpio rules over and is known for.
With all of these characteristics, associations, and color correspondences in mind, I have intuitively selected colors and prints that can serve as your vehicle of embodiment through the deep-dive that is Scorpio season. So whether you have prominent Scorpio placements in your birth chart that you want to connect to or whether you have a desire to align yourself to the zodiacal seasons of the year, may these garments serve you and adorn you as you trust-fall into your own shadows.
With Pluto’s color association being black, and Mars’ being red, what do you get when you mix the two? You get this sensual shade of deep brown that is as spicy and tantalizing as the spice it’s named after! This earthy warmth is also reflective of Scorpios fixed modality, making it the most sustained expression of water energy amongst the other two water signs of the zodiac.
As a color and crystal, Onyx is representative of protection and willpower. It is also reflective of the shadow that Scorpio is so easily able to access and integrate. Black is graceful, powerful, and prestigious. Let’s be real, there’s nothing more sleek and sexy than an all-black look.
As a sign that is so naturally and effortlessly connected to their sexuality, this bold and sexy red had to be added to the lineup. Scorpios aren’t afraid of owning what others balk at and in our society, that includes sexual sovereignty. Their rebellious and provocative spirit is always apparent whereas, with most others, those sides of us mostly dwell within our shadows. This red serves as a reminder that we shouldn’t shy away from shining the spotlight on our entire being, shadows and all.
Yes, another spice! Because Scorpio is spicy AF, duh! But with Turmeric, it always makes me think of other sensual things like honey, cinnamon and caramel and sensual is essentially synonymous to Scorpio. Plus the new 4-Way Reversible Top in Turmeric now reverses to black, one of Scorpios color associations.
Adorned with vertical and elongating beams of gold against deepest onyx, illustrating the divine balance between light and shadow, this provocative print alone embodies the Wolven slogan, Make Sustainability Sexy. It also houses a serpent that has historically been associated with transformation and rebirth as well as feminine power and sexual freedom. As a sign that has such prominent themes of sexuality, this print is truly the perfect expression of Scorpio’s seductive side.
In Hinduism, Shakti is a significant Goddess who is the primordial essence of power, creation and destruction i.e. Plutonian qualities. She is also representative of the dynamic force that is feminine energy in its rawest, purest and most untamed form. As an agent of both creation and change, Shakti shows us that there is beauty in death and destruction and that it is just as sacred as the rest of the cosmic cycles.
May this season see us through another phase of transformation on our personal journeys to our most fully realized selves. May we fearlessly descend into the season of darkness and welcome the rest and introspection that this time of year brings. May we fully embrace the darkness and not succumb to resistance so that we may make the most of this time and be reborn on the other side, one step closer to our Highest selves. May we not fear our own shadows but rather love and accept our entirety and come to understand that there cannot be light without shadow and that shadow is not inherently malefic. And may we learn how to not only coexist with our shadow but to seduce it and view it as a muse. So It Is.
