Happy New Year, Scorpio! January starts out with an eclipse in Capricorn on the 4th. This goes along with the sun, Mercury, Mars, and Pluto in Capricorn this month and it represents the last eclipse in a series in this sign. It amounts to something of an overload in your communication and information sector, but it also represents a fresh start in something that has to do with expressing yourself and getting your point across.
An eclipse in this sector tends to be hard to describe and the effects are often subtle. Sometimes taking a short course or seminar or learning something will shake loose a surprising insight or give you something to be enthusiastic about for about 6 months. (You can also look at your rising sign or Ascendant if you know it to see other ways the eclipse might affect you. This is actually a good idea to do with any monthly horoscope.)
Venus is in your sign through the 6th, making things pleasant, especially if you were born in the last week of the sign (from about the 17th of November to the 22nd). As Mars moves into Aquarius on the 16th, it becomes a dominant influence, partly because Mars likes to be a dominant influence wherever it goes, but also because it will be on an angle of your chart. It will be on the angle that represents home, family, domestic affairs and will bring power to that area of your life.
Speaking of power, 2011 can be a powerful year for you. Energy in Aries starting this month can focus your attention on a job or possibly help you get a new one. Jupiter moving into Taurus in June brings some luck to your relationships sector. And Neptune moving into Pisces in April for a few months (through July) can make you deliriously happy for no good reason whatsoever. All of these influences can help you get things done, each in their own way.
