I will always maintain the opinion that Leos are the best zodiac sign out there, but now that we are knee-deep into Fall, I have to give some love to my Scorpio sisters. We’re only just jumping into Scorpio season, an astrological timeline defined as October 23 to November 22.
Depending on where you live, these months are notably cooler and crisper—a weather pattern that correlates eerily well with Scorpios’ known personality traits. In addition to being the coolest water sign on the block, Scorpios are known for their passion, power, vulnerability, intuitiveness, and loyalty. It is no wonder then that some of the most famous celebrity Scorpios are accomplishing major feats in the entertainment industry, sports, and beauty/fashion worlds. Let’s get into some of our favorites!
Katy Perry - October 25
When you think of celebrity Scorpios, Katy Perry is one of the most notable ones out there (and not just because she released a single called “Birthday”). Everything from her funky creative style, to the public playout of her relationships, just screams Scorpio. And while it may seem like Katy is laying low this year, it is likely because she is gearing up for her wedding.
Yes, If you did not know, Katy Perry is slated to get married this December in an intimate ceremony to model/actor Orlando Bloom. I am pretty sure this scenario is the exact fantasy that I had as a child, but if anyone is going to take my dream husband away from me, I am at least glad it’s a pop superstar. In addition to wedding planning, Katy is also keeping busy with her new song “Harleys in Hawaii.” This bop just came out and it is the perfect kind of groovy, breezy beat to keep the Scorpio energy going all year long.
Ciara - October 25
“Ciara. Uh-huhhhhhh!” Sorry, but it is literally i-m-p-o-s-s-i-b-l-e for me to write, speak, or think about this woman without singing. Ciara is another iconic celebrity Scorpio/popstar, so it is only fitting that she shares a birthday with Katy Perry. And while Ciara shares the same traits of being super creative and passionate about her work, the gorgeous singer and songwriter is also very in tune with her emotionally vulnerable side. Over the years, Ciara has opened up about toxic relationships, having children in a blended family, the highs and lows of the music industry, and so much more.
Fortunately, Ciara now seems to be living her best life. She released a new album called “Beauty Marks,” her children are the cutest humans alive, and her husband Russell Wilson re-upped his NFL contract with the Seattle Seahawks for over 100 million dollars. Like I said, Ciara is living her BEST life.
Hillary Clinton - October 26
Here at I AM & CO, we are all about positivity and well-being. In other words: no politics. But Hillary Diane Rodham Clinton is so much more than just a politician, or a politician’s wife. She is a straight-up icon. As a lawyer and writer, Hillary has been an advocate for girls and women across the globe. In 2016, she became the first woman in history to be nominated for President of the United States by a major political party. And on top of all of this, she has the nerve to be an amazing mother and grandmother.
Her passion, prowess, and strength are completely in keeping with her Scorpio sign and, regardless of what side of the political party platform you fall, it is impossible to deny Hillary’s multitude of accomplishments.
Tracee Ellis Ross - October 29
Tracee Ellis Ross is one of my favorite people on the planet. Full stop. Of course, I have never actually met her in real life, but the joy she radiates from her social platforms is so infectious, I can’t help but think we would get along.
In addition to this full-time position of being my best friend in my head, Tracee acts on ABC’s hit show “Black-ish,” executive produces the new comedy “Mixed-ish,” is a clothing designer, and recently released Pattern Beauty, a haircare line dedicated to women with textured curls, coils, and kinks. With “Mixed-ish” and Pattern Beauty being new ventures, Tracee has had an insane year of success and has managed to get through it all with a smile on her face. For this, and so many other reasons, Tracee Ellis Ross is one of our absolute favorite celebrity Scorpios.
Gabrielle Union - October 29
Gabrielle Union is so much more than an NBA wife. With a string of films and television shows under her belt, she is also an A-list Hollywood actress, a producer, a “New York Times” best-selling author, and an entrepreneur (seriously, she has her own wine). In addition to all of this, she is also a stepmother to her husband, basketball player Dwayne Wade’s, children and a new mommy to her first child Kaavia Wade.
When it comes to celebrity Scorpios, Gabrielle is another one of the best. Not only is she super funny and talented, but she is also very adamant about paying her good fortune forward. Admittedly, this was not always the case. In her hit memoir “We’re Going To Need More Wine,” Gabrielle recounts her days as a “mean girl” and how hard it was for her to make friends with other women. Jealousy is said to be one of Scorpios’ more negative traits, but Gabrielle’s admission of spite was the first step she needed to take in order to stop these destructive patterns.
Ashley Graham - October 30
Most people recognize Ashley Graham from magazine covers and beauty commercials. This absolute stunner is one of the industry’s most sought after models with campaigns deals at Levi’s, Revlon, and Addition Elle. As if these accomplishments were not enough, in 2016 she made history by becoming the first plus-size model to cover a “Sports Illustrated” swimsuit edition.
Ashley’s platform is all about body positivity and inclusivity. She has been even more vocal about these messages in the past few months after announcing her first pregnancy. Like a true Scorpio however, Ashley did not let this slow her down and even walked in this year’s Zendaya x Tommy Hilfiger’s NYFW show.
Willow Smith - October 31
18-year-old Willow Smith may be a part of one of the most famous Hollywood families ever, but she is forging a path that is completely her own. Like her mega-star parents Will and Jada Pinkett Smith, Willow has turned to the music industry. This does not mean you should expect her to sound anything like Will’s hip hop grooves or Jada Pinkett’s punk rock past. Willow’s music is airy, lyrical, and borderline divine. Earlier this summer, she released a self-titled album, that marked her third studio record with Jay-Z’s label, Roc Nation.
Willow is already on her way to becoming an independent superstar. With passion like hers, it is no wonder why she is one of the best (and youngest) celebrity Scorpios in the industry right now. Although she can not even legally drink alcohol in the United States, she also recently announced a joint tour with her rapper brother, Jaden Smith. The talented duo has never toured together before, but will now bring their eclectic sounds to cities all over North America. Not a bad way to kick off a birthday.
Kendall Jenner - November 3
It is often hard to believe that Kendall Jenner and I are the same age. Fortunately, this won’t be true for much longer. At 23, Kendall has already accomplished so much in her short career that it can easily make your head spin. As a member of the famed Kardashian family and a top model, she is one of the most recognizable people in the world.
Kendall has graced the cover of every notable magazine, walked the length of every significant runway (including the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show) and has been on television since 2007. “Sensual,” “sexy,” and “bold,” are already words Scorpios are used to hearing about themselves, but as a model, Kendall takes these traits to whole new heights.
Anne Hathaway - November 12
Okay, who doesn’t already love Anne Hathaway? The actress has been a darling on all of our screens for over a decade now and is still stealing scenes in every role that comes her way. She is one of the highest-paid actresses in Hollywood but is about to take on one of the most important roles of all, motherhood.
Yes, Anne Hathaway is pregnant. And at 36, almost 37, her pregnancy was considered a “risky” one. In fact, this is the warning most women in their mid-30s start to get from doctors when they decide to have children. Acknowledging this, Anne still persisted and bravely shared some of her fertility issues on social media to her millions of followers and fans. This balance of emotional resilience and emotional vulnerability is so stereotypically Scorpio, that it is no wonder why she is an icon of her zodiac sign.
RuPaul - November 17
The name RuPaul does not really need an introduction or explanation. The world-famous TV-star and drag queen has had audiences in his grasp since the hit reality series “RuPaul’s Drag Race” first hit the screen in 2009. For ten years, he has been the most famous and highly praised public figure in the drag community and a proud advocate of LGBTQ+ rights.
Earlier this Fall, RuPaul won his fourth Primetime Emmy Award for Best Reality Series--no small feat considering the vast and varied amount of reality television that has emerged in the past decade.
Of course, astrology is not an exact science, and people can easily have personality traits that fall outside of their sign. If you do believe in the powers of the zodiac, however, then you likely agree that these celebrity Scorpios are making the most out of their season.
