Now that we’ve ushered in fall with beauty and balance (thank you, Libras), the last stretch of October is here in full force–including plenty of spooky, witchy vibes brewing for the 31st and beyond, courtesy of Scorpio season. Beginning on the 23rd until November 22, we’ll all feel Scorpio’s power in the next four weeks, regardless of our Sun sign. Ruled by Pluto, Scorpios are notoriously intense and mysterious, with a proclivity for near legendary bouts of secret keeping and jealousy (but only because their passions run high). During this season, you may be particularly drawn toward introspection, which makes this time ideal for transforming the most personal of spaces: your bedroom.
Here are our picks for the items you need to channel your inner Scorpio, from the silkiest lounging pajamas to the perfect dark-and-stormy candles.
Scorpio is, without a doubt, the witchiest sign of the zodiac. Scorpios do not shy away from mystical energy—in fact, they embrace it (usually clad in all black). Waking the Witch explores our culture’s fascination with magic and is the perfect bedside table book for brushing up on your spell-casting skills.
There’s nothing a Scorpio loves more than staying up late and writing deep, emotionally charged poetry or love letters they’ll probably never send (just another secret to store away). These candles reveal hidden layers (just like Scorpios) and bring the perfect vibe to your cozy hideaway to set the mood for feeling all the feels.
If Scorpios had a uniform, it would be a pair of extra-slinky Beetlejuice-esque pajamas that go from lounging in bed and exploring the depths of their dream states to sporting around town layered with chic cozy knits. (And if anyone gives you a weird glance, just glare right back, Scorpio-style.)
Bring one of the ultimate Scorpios, Georgia O’Keeffe, into your space and let that creative energy flow. The sign, ruled by the eighth house, has an infamous fascination with sex and death, and O’Keeffe’s vibrant flowers and still-life studies of skulls make for magnetic talismans to meditate on.
Made from freshly harvested jasmine, this mood-boosting oil can be used for reviving dry, tired skin and fragrant massages. Because passion is, after all, a Scorpio’s middle name.
This stool takes on a fluid, almost liquid shape despite being forged from steel—making it pretty much the physical manifestation of the loves-to-get-deep water sign.
A prickly heart? Yes, that sounds about right. Though they may seem tough on the outside, deep down (like, really deep down) Scorpios are giant softies. Make room for this cactus on your windowsill as a reminder to open your heart every now and then.
