Although things have been in abeyance for a couple of years for those born under the sign of the scorpion, things are about to change during 2017 and this is clear from the transit of Jupiter nearing your Sun sign in the earlier part of the year and finally making contact with your Sun sign Scorpio on October 10.
To gain the best out of this year you must still work with Jupiter in your 12th house of low-key activities, planning, and secret insights. It is predominantly a spiritual house in your horoscope and therefore much of what has been happening, even if it doesn’t feel too positive is in fact ultimately for your own good and unique development. You can expand yourself tremendously through this mechanism of Jupiter and deepen your spiritual insights as well is your intuition.
This is a year when you need to trust that intuition and delve deeply into what it is you want to do and ascertain when the best times to do that are. You can only do that I tuning into yourself and not relying too much on what other people have to tell you.
Your financial affairs have been under a cloud some time and much of the reading for 2017 regarding Saturn will be similar to what was said throughout 2016 are Saturn will not exit your finance and income sector until 20 December 2017. This doesn’t mean your finances are destined to be in the pits for the whole of 2017 but you will still be required to respect money and to live a little more frugally. Of course, when Jupiter makes its move in October you will start to feel a distinct shift in all matters financial.
The transit of Jupiter is also significant for another reason, it fully aspects your seventh house of marriage and relationships. Of course, when you are completely snowed under by financial and business worries, it’s hard to really put your heart and soul into a relationship when you’re distracted by all these other bushfires, so to speak. The advantage of Jupiter transiting your Sun sign is that it will bring more optimism and a better connection spiritually to those you love and in particular your chosen partner or spouse. You should anticipate the last quarter of 2017 being better both for your relationships as well is your finances.
You’re two ruling planets, Mars and Pluto, need to be looked at to give you an overview of what is likely to have throughout the coming 12 months as well. As mentioned last year, with the transit of your ruling planet Pluto, the most transformational of all planets in your third house of communication, it’s likely many of you have opted for a very different communication style. The manner in which you engage others may have changed and this is because you don’t have too much time now to bother with superfluous matters, petty people or those who aren’t interested in forging deep and long-term relationships with you. Your communication is all about attrition, cutting through to what’s important and eliminating what’s not.
With Mars located in your fifth house of competitive activities, love affairs and children, 2017 is also likely to be one where your competitive spirit and drive is rebooted. At last, you will start to feel that energy and passion that may have been missing for some time and this is your chance in the next 12 months to really put your best foot forward and show others what you are really made of. As long as these competitive instincts don’t get in the road of your friendships and relationships, and you maintain good sportsmanship in the way you approach even the most ferocious competitive situation, you will come out a winner and at the same time maintain friends and the respect of those you are in competition with.
Apart from streamlining your relationships, Uranus in your sixth house of work practices and the environment in which you work receives a favourable aspect from Saturn stabilising what has been a rather topsy-turvy time in your professional activities. This is good because it shows you won’t be so high strung about the ups and downs but will remain more focused on what it is you need to do to get the job done and also refocus on being happy with your work rather than simply being caught up in the need to make money as a result of the previous issues financially.
Meeting new people in your workplace or through your business and profession will give you a lift in confidence and also provide you with the inspiration needed to take you through to the next level in your life. In the early part of the year with the North node moving through your 11th house of friendships and networking, you could meet people that are rather different your usual peer group and this will open your mind up to the science of human possibilities. This is also been a period of attrition in terms of friends and therefore you will be on the lookout to expand your social circle but not in the way you have in the past.
As the year starts, the Moon and Venus transit your fourth house of family affairs. Both of these planets gain directional strength in this area of your horoscope and this means you will be drawn closer to the ones you love at home, both immediate family members and extended relatives. You will also want to make your home a haven of peace and security so notwithstanding what is happening in your professional and social experience, focusing on your family life will be one of the key points on your agenda to work on in 2017.
Venus is your marital planet, is located in your fourth house but this has to do with your partner's career and professional appetite and therefore throughout the next 12 months you may find yourself playing a supporting role in helping them find their feet and in a way, encouraging and mentoring them to find what brings passion to their life through their work. This can be very fulfilling for you at the same time helps cement your relationship to the one you love, such as your spouse or long-term partner. Business partnerships also come under the purview of this Venus rulership and so, therefore, any business associations can also flourish during 2017.
