The transit of Jupiter in your 11th house of profits, social activities and fulfilment is one of the highlights of the outer planet transits the Scorpio throughout 2016. This should give you the confidence you need especially with the Moon’s association as the year commences. Friendships of all sorts should be rekindled now after a rather confusing period. This also indicates better networking and connections in your business and, if you’ve felt somewhat out of the loop professionally, this can reignite your passion to do better at work and to nicely blend your professional and social activities.
Mars gives you a boost as it transits your Sun sign on January 4 than trining Neptune on the 18th. These are all signifiers of not just greater physical energy but provide a bolster to your imagination and creative skills. You’re also able to take your spiritual ideals, ruled by Neptune and give them a practical twist, a distinct advantage for you.
Your love life, and in particular the creative approach you take to romance this year will also be important as shown by the solar eclipse on March 9 occurring in your 5th house. This eclipse is in the opposite sign to Jupiter that this will give a lot more energy to your social activities as well but in this department of your life things are most definitely changing, and changing drastically. No longer are you subject to the whims and fancies of others but will rather be weeding out those people for no longer of any use to you. The may be nothing personal in this, but as the year progresses you will realise more and more that your time is a valuable commodity and you can’t share it with all and sundry. Discrimination is one of the big keywords for you throughout 2016.
The lunar eclipse on 23 March is powerful in a spiritual way and also counteracts the Jupiter trine Pluto aspect on the 17th and the Jupiter Square Saturn aspect on the 23rd. These 2 aspects have a lot to do with contracts, income and the way you’re better going to handle your material life whereas the eclipse on the 12th house is more to do about finding that value within yourself and making sure that you find peace and happiness independently of anything you do in the outer world with anyone else.
You can acquire great power this year as well and that shown by Jupiter trining Pluto in June. Your own power will be met by the association of others whom you respect or admire for their achievements and the feeling will be mutual. It’s a time when you can feel privileged and proud of what you’ve achieved and you could find yourself in the company of high achievers who can further advance your career during this phase of your life.
With Saturn still taking it’s time into 2nd house of finances and income, don’t expect this year to be a super duper bumper money year. You’re learning some important lessons about cutting back on expenses, learning to do with less and generally respecting money more. You have the assistance of your partner or spouse which is ruled by Venus in the conjunction of these two planets earlier in the year is representative of the fact that you’ll be working closely with your loved one, bringing both your talents together to create something unique which can eventually yield better results commercially and financially.
Your communications are also changing and the way in which you deal with people is shown by the 3rd house on the very powerful transit of Pluto which is only now halfway through this particular house of your horoscope. The Sun makes a heavy-duty conjunction in the first week of the year and this reflects your formidable Scorpio energy and the fact that you may be regretting that you haven’t use this in your negotiations for some time. That’s about to change. A cool and ruthless approach dressed in respect and diplomacy will be the way forward now.
With Neptune transiting your 5th house, a little-known the spiritual flavour to this sector of your horoscope, will be brought out and trying new creative activities which connected to your higher spiritual self is quite likely throughout the coming 12 months but in particular the challenging square from Mars on August 26 could frustrate you in that you may know what you want to do but responsibilities or other people hinder you. In fact, what’s more likely is that you yourself need to clearly define what it is you want to do and how you will bridge the gap between your material and spiritual needs. If you have children this is a time when you can clearly connect to them and absorb some of the childlike qualities that make them happy and apply that to your own processes in life.
On September 9 Jupiter makes its once only in 12 years transit to your 12th house of Libra. This further represents the increasing spiritual urgency for many born under Scorpio. Let’s not use this word to specifically because it more loosely speaking spirituality can take many different forms. Compassionate works, generosity either within your social and family group or even on a global scale through humanitarian organisations may be more appealing to you during this coming year. This transit lasts about 12 months to your sea are gradually increase in your awareness of spiritual phenomena, powerful dreams and the development of your intuition and psychic powers.
Because Pluto is your ruling planet it’s stationary and retrograde movement is particularly notable for you and on September 27 just after Jupiter transits your 12th house it moves into its stationary direct motion having spent some time in a process of revision. As it moves forward you’ll feel the resurgence of your own self energy, something that may have been missing for many many months. You’ll feel more confident in yourself and generally speaking in your element.
Once again, a lunar eclipse in your 5th house on 17 September along with the prior square from Saturn to Neptune on the 5th house all indicate caution being necessary in any speculative ventures. The may also be some misgivings about the behaviour of your children or a lover if you happen to be in a new relationship. Your creative activities could also grind to a halt as you get some sort of block. Rest assured this will pass and you should use this time to further analyse yourself and how you can better deal with your emotions.
You want to do things bigger and better than anyone else throughout October and when Mars transits your 3rd house of communications on September 27 a new cycle of intense communication takes place and this will need to be checked as your self-confidence may not be in keeping with the reality of the situation. Frustration could develop into anger and God forbid a retaliatory response on your part especially when on October 19 Mars moves into the conjunction of Pluto and on the 29th to the square of Uranus.
This period of the year is fraught with danger and self-confidence that is grounded only in ego which needs to be cast aside. Humble yourself, don’t be afraid to ask questions and realise the limits that you have so that you can improve yourself to achieve the things you want – maybe not as quickly as you would have liked but at least safely and surely. Things will happen speedily but unpredictably due to the action of Uranus. Contracts and workplace agreements may be on a slippery slope so you need to that in the bud and the just things when and if they arise.
On November 9 Mars moves to your 4th house reflecting a need for more domesticated activities, closer ties with family and maybe even some redesign, sale or even purchase of property. Don’t take your anger out on your loved ones as Mars is likely to do that. Also around November 25 Jupiter trines Pluto and this indicates that you may be dealing with power trippers who are trying to take advantage of you. Reading books by Machiavelli and other political schemers so that you can be one step ahead of the pack is recommended.
The final month of the year Mars at least makes a favourable aspect to Jupiter on the 2nd just before moving to the 5th house on the 19th. You are injury prone at this time but this may simply be because you’re trying to push yourself beyond your physical limits. Exercise, competitive sports and other outdoor activities are favoured but should be done so in a cautious manner. This must should also be exciting with a great deal of generosity being part of the mix with your Jupiter opposing Uranus. You don’t need to spend loads of money the show your loved others but I don’t think my advice here is going to help change your mind too much.
Romance, Social and Domestic
Mars squares your 4th house of family and domestic activities on 4 January just 2 days after Mercury enters the 4th house and this highlights significance of this area of your life as the year commences.
