Cupido in Scorpio 2022 - 2023
Cupido in Scorpio brings more passion and intensity to our crushes, and we can be super infatuated with people/places/things/hobbies. We have to work at using the passionate energy properly, otherwise we may become obsessed in an unhealthy way.
While retrograde, Cupido in Scorpio can bring out the challenges with obsession, and we may be overly clingy with the things we're wrapped up in. We may need some space and to give ourselves and others more breathing room so no one is being smothered.
The retrograde ends on July 14th 2023 at 23 degrees Scorpio, and is trine (beneficial aspect) the Sun and opposite Uranus. Crushes and infatuations may seem unexpected with Uranus, but pleasant with the Sun.
