Scorpio, you’ll storm into 2018 carrying an old adage in your back pocket: What doesn’t kill you only makes you stronger.
Certainly, over the past few years, you’ve had many lessons learned from the tough obstacles that have been placed in your path, most notably the difficult transit of Saturn in your second house of finance throughout the past two and half years. You had some curved balls thrown at you, financially speaking, that’s for sure.
The uncertainty has carried across into your workplace activities with the added unpredictable transit of Uranus in your sixth house of workplace activities, work associates and employees. Not only that, this covers those who work for you and this will also be without doubt a challenge, having to deal with people who may not be up to the standards that you expect when working with others. As a result of this, you’ve had to endure a great deal of frustration and only now are starting to feel as if you are getting on top of things.
The early lunar eclipse on January 31 in your 10th house of profession attests to the fact that work is still an important focal point for you in getting all of the factors right and means you have to temper the combined influence of Mars and Jupiter in your Sun sign at least throughout the first few weeks of the year. Until January 26 Mars, one of your ruling planets will be transiting your Sun sign giving you the energy, enthusiasm and confidence to go for what you want. The eclipse indicates that you must be careful not to allow your emotions to impact upon your decision-making as this is part of the problem you’ve had over the last three or four years. In other words, you must become much more exacting in your business and personal skills.
Mars makes you impulsive and also somewhat irritable in nature so patience will be an important component of your success quotient.
Try not to let others get under your skin even if you know they're not right in their assessment of things.
It’s not likely to be as big a problem because Saturn in the latter part of 2017, moves into your third house of communications and thinking. You will indeed become much more deliberate in the way you draw your conclusions and negotiate with others. Your thinking will be deeper and your speech may even slow down somewhat as you realise that communication is the key to getting back on top of things after spending a while in the arid no-man’s-land-desert.
Your love, marriage and friendships should be accentuated as shown by the Mars and Jupiter conjunction at the outset of the year as well. Jupiter is one of the rulers of your love affairs and Mars shows you’re taking much more control over this area of your life. If romance has been stagnant, this will certainly give it a kick in the pants that’s for sure. Jupiter continues in your Sun sign throughout the whole year ensuring its wonderful aspect on your marital sector so if you're married, this should be a time of reconciliation, growth and happiness from those born under the sign of the Scorpion.
Important changes in your family life are also indicated by the powerful solar eclipse on February 16 which takes place in your fourth house of domestic affairs. Coupled with this is the current transit of the South Node which relates primarily to your past karma and spiritual bank balance. You’re learning many new lessons about your responsibilities to family and around the time of the eclipse, you should start to see some fairly significant changes taking place. For some of you, a complete change of location is likely.
Another solar eclipse on July 13 occurs in your ninth house of long journeys, higher learning, tertiary education and also spiritual development.
Peace of mind is the primary ingredient for a happy life and both the fourth and ninth houses point to a clarification of affairs in your life that can lead to a greater inner equanimity and peace of mind. But in relation to your family affairs, these eclipses point to some deep stirrings within your soul to get to the bottom of that most important question:
“Why am I here?”
It could well be that 2018 is the year when even if you don’t necessarily get an absolute answer to this question, you’ll be well on your way to at least making some headway in the right direction of your life’s purpose.
From the point of view of romance, the early part of the year may prove to be a sticking point due to your demanding nature. If you can curb your desire to enforce your will on others, you’ll be able to sidestep any initial problems in your love life. There are intense aspects by Jupiter, particularly the formation of the sextile aspect to Pluto on January 16, April 14 and September 12when, due to the retrograde motion of this planet, it will to and fro creating a sort of Groundhog Day effect. You'll have more than one opportunity to connect on a deeper, almost transformative level with the one you love. These are actually very favourable aspects so if they are handled well, the result is a much better relationship for you.
Do try to reduce your stress levels throughout the coming 12 months as the transit of Uranus in your health sector may cause unexpected issues. As an example, as the ruler of your 12th house, Venus makes contact around March 29, and you may experience infection or inflammation in your body. The square aspect of your ruling planet Mars, on May 16, also sets off a few alarm bells health wise. You are prone to injury as a result of impulse and indiscriminate living. Venus also makes another difficult aspect on June 15 with Mercury and Sun doing the same on June 30 and July 25respectively. Please note these dates as times to exercise greater caution both in your lifestyle choices and travel arrangements. Exercise caution on the roads if you happen to be travelling on or about these dates.
What's happening in your love life, marriage and social arena?
Love and romance blossom early in the year as Venus transit your fifth house of romance on February 11, Mercury on February 18 and the Sun on February 19. This is a powerhouse of romantic energy that you should avail yourself of. For singles, this is the perfect time to be looking forward to socialising, meeting new people and possibly even making a commitment to someone you are attracted to. You will also be attractive given the excellent placement of Venus.
You must take care not to burn the candle at both ends especially around the time of entry of Venus to this sensitive area of your horoscope as the Sun will simultaneously be squaring Jupiter along with Mercury and this can be considered a wasteful combination where you're likely to be living life in the fast lane.
Moderationshould be your keyword during these transits.
Venus transits your seventh house of love and marriage on March 31 and brings with it loads of warmth, sensuality and love. It’s a great time to nourish your relationships. You’ll need to feel love at this time probably as a result of the difficult Sun square Saturn aspect that will have been taking place in the days leading up to this date. Additional responsibilities make it hard for you to make time or effort for the ones you love. If you could break free of the habit of hard work and endless hours on the treadmill of financial obligation, that effort will be well worth it.
On April 20, Sun transits your zone of marriage bringing with it a much brighter energy to your relationships. This helps the above Venus transit but is also a hot influence which can in some cases burn you out. The transit of the Sun to Uranus on the 19th along with the Mars sextile aspect to the Sun will exacerbate reactive tendencies in either you or your partner so you must be careful not to sweat the small stuffor over inflate trivialities. Fights are likely during these transits as well. Remember, everything is small stuff!
Important developments in your marital and close-knit partnerships occur around May 13 and May 16 when Mercury and Uranus enter into your pivotal seventh house. The unexpected nature of Uranus is something to watch out for and it’s at this time that your relationships could take a turn that you would never have expected. For this reason, it’s important to keep the lines of communication open.
As mentioned in the introduction to your reading, Saturn’s transit through your third house may make you a lot more serious in the way you think and also communicate your ideas. In fact, for some shutting down is sometimes an option rather than dealing with serious communication issues. Of course, this isn't going to help and it’s a timely warning that you should use the understanding of these transits as a form of appropriate foresight to sidestep any of these possible problems.
Intense social activities occur on the timeline leading up to June 15 when Venus squares Uranus and at the same time makes an opposition aspect to Mars. It seems that there is a continuation of passion, excitement but also recklessness to a large extent and you should be cautioned against rushing headlong into relationships, especially romantic or sexual ones which haven’t been carefully thought through. You’ll be excessive at this time and that’s shown by the added weight of the Venus square Jupiter on June 26 with the undercurrent of the square to your Sun sign throughout this whole period.
Just don’t get hurt by trying to do a rush job on romantic relationships.
It’s better to play the wait-and-see game which will serve you better when Venus transits your 11th house of friendships on July 10. At this time better transits to Uranus, Saturn and Jupiter occur on the 12th, 14th, and 22nd of July. You have the green thumb after this period to explore your relationships with less collateral damage.
Wonderful opportunities for love and romance take place under the favourable connections of Venus and Jupiter and on July 22 as Venus does indeed cast a sextile aspect to Jupiter bringing with it gifts, generosity and a joyful feeling of abundance. The opposite aspect to Neptune once again makes you idealistic on the 25th but the protective influence of Jupiter means that you shouldn’t experience too many difficulties or obstructions.
Mars is passionate influence continues throughout the whole year and ramps up the excitement leading up to November 16 when it enters your fifth house of romance and love affairs. Just prior to this, Venus enters your 12th house of luxury is spending, bed pleasures and foreign connections so that there is something exotic about this transit which could make life extremely exciting and interestingat the same time.
At the very tail end of the year, Venus makes and extraordinarily powerful sextile aspect to Pluto on 29 December. There is an intensity and transformative influence that comes in the wake of these sort of planetary combinations but because the sextile aspect is a friendly and soft one, the outcome is usually good. Intense love and romance coupled with intuitive self-insights make for a lovely completion to your romantic life in 2018.
Is it going to be a successful year for you Scorpio?
On November 8 Jupiter’s long 12-year cycle comes full circle and moves to a constructive location in your horoscope, the second house of income. This gives your earning capacity a kick start and the likelihood of good luck in the area of money, finance and work. It’s been a long time coming for many Scorpios but for the first time in many years, you’ll see an upswing in your ability to earn more cash without the attendant effort that’s been part of your journey over the past two or three years.
Jupiter’s aspect to your sixth house of workplace activities and co-workers also ensures a better deal in terms of the environment you work in the type of people you find yourself collaborating with professionally. Most notably, your 10th house of professional achievement also receives this excellent aspect so all in all, although you must wait till the latter part of the year for these favourable influences, at least you know your work is going to yield good results in the end. Some of these exact dates depend on your exact time of birth and will differ from person to person born under Scorpio.
Mars moves to your fourth house of property and real assets on May 16 bringing with it a practical energy. This often brings with it a desire to construct, fabricate, design or decorate your home or possibly even sell and buy property. With its retrograde motion on June 27, you’ll find this influence of the fiery planet continues all the way up until November 15. Throughout this period it may also cause disputes amongst family members so you must be careful that your desire to further your financial and future security doesn’t come at a personal cost. These influences continue throughout these months but the retrogression indicates some setbacks so careful planning is imperative.
Powerful planetary forces give a pick-up to your professional activities after June 14 when Venus transits your most important 10th house of career. On June 29, Mercury follows suit with the Sun bringing its dazzling energy to this same area on July 23. These are the sorts of transits that give you the opportunity to elevate your position professionally, to improve your income and most importantly to expand your self-esteem and circle of influence. That will continue as these planets move into your 11th house of social activities and networking. Venus does so on July 10, the Sun on August 23 and Mercury on September 6.
Don’t waste time connecting with those people who can further your professional objectives.
On September 11 the Sun sextiles Jupiter with an added sextile aspect being made with Pluto on September 12. Around this time Venus opposes Uranus and sextile Saturn with Mercury opposing Neptune on the 14th. This is a complex cluster of aspects indicating tremendous opportunity but a necessity to play your cards carefully. Expansive and opportune meetings give you the leg up you’re waiting for the interplay of Mercury and Neptune and also Pluto show some underhanded tactics at play, perhaps by those you are negotiating with.
When Mercury and the Sun transit your 12th house of loss on September 22 and 23 respectively, caution should be exercised especially if you’re parting with money. The square of Mercury and Saturn of September 24 and the square of the Sun to Saturn on September 26 don’t help matters. Don’t be in a rush to spend money or to be fooled by people who’d rather take your money than work hard for it themselves. There are repeats of these sorts of activities when the Sun transits the 12th house on September 23 and luxurious is Venus does the same on November 1. These are periods where you should be particularly careful how much you’re spending and what you’re getting in return as a service. People may take advantage of you during these planetary interludes.
The conjunction of Mercury with Jupiter is an excellent planetary combination for improving your resume, advertising your services and skills and also negotiating any important contracts related to work or money. Your communication ability should be convincing and so you’ll be able to stitch up a good deal for yourself during this transit leading up to this date. This occurs on October 29,November 26 and again on December 22. As Mercury is retrograde during this interval, caution, as usual, needs to be taken when signing any contractual agreements.
Check the fine print and don’t be afraid to demand a fair deal for yourself.
You, Scorpio, are your strongest asset throughout 2018 as shown by the transit of Lucky Jupiter through your Sun sign. Your time, energy and resources produce the best future karma and luck for you but only if you are able to manage those resources efficiently and not let your emotions get the better of you. With Mars, one of your principal ruling planets associated with Jupiter, you may be so excited and enthralled by your ideas that you forget to plan effectively.
Don’t spread yourself too far and wide and keep focused on those things that are going to bring you happiness and success.
Financial luck is shown by the movement of Jupiter to your second house of income on November 8, 2018. This seems like a long way off but that is the reason I am emphasising the importance of managing your time and resources as best you can so that you can make the most of these newfound opportunities starting in the second half of the year. Jupiter will remain in this area of your horoscope for another year bringing with it increased income and even growth of your family through celebrations like engagements, marriages, reunions, anniversaries and even the birth of children.
Your spiritual welfare and self-development are likely to see a vast improvement when Venus transits the fifth house of your horoscope on February 11 and then again the ninth house on May 19. Educational pursuits must be linked to those elements of your life plan to make you feel good, not just earn you money. Jupiter will look after that side of things but do your best to focus your attention on activities that give you the creative and expressive outlet so needed now. Through these activities and efforts, you'll attain a higher spiritual state.
