This month you may be all about socializing in and keep finding yourself needing to get serious and knuckle down on your to do list. The month kicks off with an opposition between Jupiter and Uranus on the 2nd. This will see you trying to get a lot of things done and perhaps needing some solitude in order to do that. You are either working alone, or putting other people’s priorities behind your own today. Perhaps you’ve been giving a lot of yourself to other people and their needs and decide to put yourself at the top of your priorities.
Venus retrogrades on the 4th, in your 6th house. All those little aesthetic details really start to count now as you look around and try and make them beautiful. Your eye for detail is amazing during this Venus retrograde and even a stray spider web that’s slowly built up in some forgotten corner of the house will catch your eye. That doesn’t mean you will suddenly decide to sweep it away though. Funnily enough, with Venus in this cycle you may suddenly see the beauty in such a thing and end up fascinated and contemplating how amazing such a small and often forgotten aspect of nature is. It’s the little things, the minutiae of daily life that has you intrigued and inspired in the month ahead.
Mars moves into Taurus on the 9th, your 7th house. Partnerships get your energy, your devotion and plenty of motivation. This includes your spouse, a lover or a business partner. Even something creative could see you teaming up with someone else to drive it forward, or simply to get more enjoyment by sharing.
A Full moon in Virgo on the 12th, in your 11th house sees your social life in focus. You may be attending a party today, or just making time for a friend. This is also the end of a cycle so there may be something you’ve worked on with a friend over the last six months that is finally starting to realize some results, or a friend is departing or going to be out of your life for a while doing other things. The only troubling aspect today that you need to watch is an issue around money and friendship. Perhaps what you’ve worked on doesn’t bring the monetary benefits you’d hoped. Or there could be some issues around money between you and a mate.
Mercury moves into Aries on the 13th, your 6th house. Take care of all those messages you’ve ignored, or that discussion you’ve been putting off. Look at how communication affects your daily life, and where you’ve let things slide its time to get back on top of it. Emails, phone calls, or just getting all the bills taken care of and not leaving enveloped piled on your desk. Take care of the little stuff Scorpio. It really needs doing. Then on the 20th, the Sun also moves into Aries and this is your annual review for all the detail of your daily life that needs an overhaul. How have you been going with healthy eating, exercise, or keeping on top of your tasks? Have you let a million little things slide, and now you’re finding they are all adding up to a very big headache? Perhaps love distracted you. Love of a person, or love of one of your passions such as a hobby or work project. In the process there is a lot of ‘stuff’ that really needs your focus to make life run more smoothly.
A New moon in Aries on the 27th is your chance for a fresh start or to build on the efforts you’ve made to be on top of life’s little detail. This one will see you make some new goals, or recommit to the ones that have helped you make life easier. But watch out for money again as Saturn clashes with this moon. Have you abandoned your budget and gotten a little crazy with the credit cards? Or did you fall back into the habit of being so miserly with your money, that you’ve ended up depriving yourself of something that would actually save you time and effort in the long run? Make sure you are being balanced about money and not going overboard in either direction.
Jupiter and Pluto clash on the 30th and this is one to watch when it comes to your privacy Scorpio. Information may come to light today that you would really rather keep to yourself. Or you could find that someone or an organization hasn’t taken as good a care of your privacy as they should. Institutions are a particular one to watch with Capricorn in the mix. Take care with your own communications too and make sure you are sending the right email to the right person.
Mercury moves into Taurus on the 31st, your 7th house of partnership. However, Mercury is due to retrograde form April 9th and for this reason you should exercise caution in your communication with partners, including your spouse, a lover, a business partner or even an ex. All partnership related matters will be subject to some cross wires over the coming month and won’t be full back to normal until around mid May. Be patient and take your time.
One of the important things that happens for you this year, and in 2018, is learning to trust in love and not let your cynical side shut you off from someone who genuinely cares for you. Perhaps you’ve felt let down in the past, and learned to put up barriers with people, and no matter how desperately you wish you could let them down, that cynical voice tells you that you won’t be hurt by anyone again by letting them get to close.
This is an ongoing theme for you that has been going now since 2008 and will continue until 2025. You let yourself get so far in, and then you inevitably draw back and question if that’s the right thing to do. Your heart is a like a push me, pull you and if only others new the turmoil you put yourself through, they may not be so inclined to give you a hard time when you get all grumpy or morose. There are going to be more doses of this narrative that you’ve set up in your mind, but if you can bring yourself to let that barrier down just a little, you will find that you will be richly rewarded.
February is the first romantic jackpot for you this year. From mid month you have the Sun and Mercury in Pisces and to add icing to this yearly cake, in 2017 a new Moon Solar Eclipse falls in Pisces and your 5th house of romance, children and creativity. This is your opportunity to start over fresh in an existing romance, or to make the decision to take chances with your heart and let people in, so you can truly experience the closeness you crave and deserve.
The first of those negative narratives are going to come along in early April when Venus retrogrades in Pisces for two weeks. You need to pay attention to the stories you’re telling yourself over this period. Sure, let your mind go to the darkest recesses and worst case scenarios that it wants to, because you can’t really help but do that, but let the positive, the hopeful and romantic part of you change the story. For every bad thought you have, make a conscious effort to have two positive ones. Think about the possibility that things can turn out differently this time, or much better than you dared hope. It doesn’t matter if you are in a relationship or single, the battle you have to overcome Scorpio, in order to truly get joy from all love has to offer you, is entirely with yourself.
Money could also be a sore point for you in your love affairs this year, and at the end of April you may learn a harsh lesson if you are selfish with money, or try to make life about money rather than love. Give more of your self, and don’t let money be the thing that tears you away from someone you think is wonderful.
Mid June is when you really need to dig in and look for the positives in love, in your relationship with children, or your attitude to the idea of having kids. Neptune retrogrades in Pisces, followed two weeks later by Chiron retrograding in Pisces and your 5th house. You are all over the place with emotions right through until the end of the year. There will be a lot of emotional highs and lows just as there have been for the last 8 years, and you need to recognise that this is happening, and find it in yourself to not let those highs and lows go to any great extreme in either direction. Remember to find double the positives for every negative thing you tell yourself. Don’t let someone else’s moods or behaviour dictate how you choose to love them. Be the bigger person, be vulnerable and experience what it is to be all in, with no expectations of a particular outcome.
A full moon in Pisces in early September is a beautiful time for you romantically, but once again remind yourself not to let money overtake love or damage it. This comes up again for you in early November when Saturn and Chiron clash and if you haven’t got the message by now, you surely will. Money has no business being more important to you than love, or getting in the way of your heart. Neptune turns direct in mid November and this is a lovely aspect for you romantically in early December. Jupiter and Neptune join together, December 2nd to transform love, or to ignite your passion. Chiron will turn direct a few days later and it’s easy to relax and enjoy romance and not have to constantly question yourself, or anyone else.
There are two sets of eclipses this year and both sets have at least one positive aspect for your career. The first is a Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Leo, February 10th and it’s giving you brilliant aspects for your professional life. Money, hard work and negotiating privately around this moon all work well for you and can bring you unexpected luck or new opportunities.
July brings the next good news for your career with Mercury entering Leo in early July, followed by Mars, the Sun and then a New moon in your 10th house. I love all of these aspects for your career or business, but you could find yourself being overzealous or a little unrealistic around this new moon and end up taking on far more work than is reasonable or realistic.
Don’t take on anything that is going to take away from the balance in your life and allow for some sort of issue which comes out of left field and throws your schedule into a spin.
The second set of Eclipses occur in August and it’s the New Moon Solar Eclipse in Leo, August 21 which is entirely positive for you professionally. We see the Sun, moon, Mars, Mercury, Uranus and Saturn all in on the action today to make this a standout day for your career. 4 days later Venus enters Leo and this can put you at the centre of attention or just make you far more popular with clients and colleagues.
However, at the end of August we see Mercury retrograde in your 10th house, so I think you need to make the most of that Solar Eclipse August 21st and literally make hay while the sun shines. Mercury retrograde only spends 6 days in your 10th house, but it still isn’t the time to move ahead with things. Keep doing what you have been doing and leave anything new until late September.
Now for the most wonderful news Scorpio, Jupiter will finish up its year long move through Libra and enter your sign, October 10 and in your 10th house. Right from the get go, Jupiter is bringing you luck and brand new options professionally. 7 days later Mercury enters Scorpio and your 10th house, followed closely by the Sun and then in early November Venus. Now a lot of the focus here will be on your 9th house. Are you travelling internationally, working with businesses overseas, or have you decided to go back and undertake some higher learning to further your career? It’s a good time to do any of those things Scorpio with a new moon in Scorpio November 18 starting a new chapter in your 9th house.
Financial lessons are getting a going over at the moment Scorpio with Saturn still in Sagittarius and your 2nd house of money. Whatever happened when Saturn was in your sign a few years ago, money lessons haven’t been heeded, or you need to keep going over them until they stick. Saturn retrogrades from April 6th to mid August and this will force you to look at where you need to be more realistic or relax about money.
Love and money are a big theme this year. Do you spend to impress people? Or do you act miserly and expect a partner to do without when you have plenty? Perhaps you are a bit too keen to spend and not think about the consequences. Pay attention to your money this year Scorpio, because your lessons finish off at the end of this year when Saturn moves on to Capricorn and your 3rd house in December.
The other big news for you this year is Jupiter moves into your sign in October and that means the luck and good fortune planet is focused on you. But you need to make your luck, to recognise where there are opportunities, and where you let things pass you by. One of the best days for money comes June 9th with a full moon in Sagittarius.
Love and money will be a tense point, but otherwise you have excellent aspects on this day to make more money or to finally see a pay off from hard work you’ve been putting in over the last six months. The other outstanding day for you financially comes August 27th when Jupiter and Saturn reward you for discretion or help you to negotiate something privately that will see you make more, or get a nice return on an investment.
In November Mercury, then the Sun and Venus all set up in your 2nd house, but get things done early this month as by December we have Mercury retrograding which will make money matters difficult. You cap off your financial year with a new moon in Sagittarius right before Christmas, so draw up your money resolutions for 2018 early, and get started while everyone else is winding down and probably spending all their cash on the holiday season.
