The sun and Mercury start the month in Virgo in your solar 11th house. Virgo is a Mercury-ruled sign, so Mercury is in his own territory so to speak. Mercury is a planet of information and he likes to see a lot of it zipping around. Although it’s not usually advertised that way, the 11th house, ruled by Uranus, is a house of systems and technology. So the first 3 weeks of the month have energy that’s good for things like developing your computer skills, collecting information about systems, and generally being all organized and communicative and intellectual and techie.

When Scorpios read mass media descriptions of their sun signs, they are rarely told that the default mode for their sign is to follow their hearts in career matters or that relationships are supremely important to them in career. But Leo is the Scorpio career sign and Leo follows its heart and cares about relationships. This month, the sun and Mercury are active in your career sign until the 23rd. Not a bad time to take stock of your relationships and alliances in your career. Be realistic and factual in your assessment, for Saturn in your own sign says that facts trump feelings for the time being. (more…)
July is part of career season for Scorpio. You have career energy from start to finish this month, with Venus in your career sign of Leo until the 22nd, when the sun moves into that sign. The middle two weeks of the month are when things on the work front could happen in a split second. That’s because Uranus in your job house will station, and he’s not in a bad angle with Venus. Uranus is a planet that moves at lightning speed, and when he stations he’s especially powerful. The nice angle with Venus in your career house seems to indicate that whatever happens should be positive. (more…)
As June opens, Uranus and Pluto are still within spitting distance of an outright war, but slowly move away from each other as the month progresses. They may still be hissing at each other, but they’ve decided to stop actually swatting each other and retreat a bit.
Uranus is in your solar 6th house these days. The 6th house relates to things like health maintenance and daily chores. (more…)
Ah, Scorpio, it’s hard to say what the motto of the month for May should be. ‘When one door closes, another opens’ comes to mind. ‘If May’s not your cup of tea, wait for June’ could work. ‘Get me out of here’ might be closer to the mark for some of you. ‘Who made up all these rules?’ will fit for some.
Here’s the astrology. Uranus in Aries is clashing with Pluto in Capricorn during the second half of this month and the first half of next month. (more…)
Let’s start with relationships. There’s a lot of energy in April, especially during the second half of the month, in the part of your solar chart that governs your significant other, best friend, spouse, #1 enemy, doppelganger or anyone else you have a particularly close relationship with.
Your chart is all in when it comes to the quest for such a relationship or to extract maximum pleasure from the one you already have. Your sign is also the sign of other people’s money, so sometimes when there’s a lot of energy in this part of your chart, it represents the quest to extract maximum money or resources from the relationship.
April is also job search month in the Scorpio chart. (more…)
In March, we wind down the universe’s 2013 Pisces-fest. The month starts with the sun, Mercury, Venus, Mars, and Neptune in this sign. It ends with only Mercury in Pisces. Pisces is your solar sign of pleasure and love, so mostly your sign has benefited from all the Pisces action this year. But…Mars entered Pisces last month, and he’ll be there until the 11th of this month. (more…)
It’s the dead of winter in the Northern Hemisphere and the Scorpio solar chart doesn’t really like that. It’s cold and flu season, too, and the Scorpio solar chart isn’t all that thrilled about potential illness either. So what does the Scorpio solar chart do in such times of mild affliction? It turns to comfort! Home comforts, comfort food, comfort anything. (more…)
Happy New Year Scorpio. January is annual book month for Scorpio. If you live in the Northern Hemisphere, it’s winter–cold and gloomy out–with the holidays now past. It’s time to curl up with some pleasurable reading material and let the weather do its thing. This coincides nicely with January also being Scorpio’s annual choose-to-stay-at-home month. (more…)
Tis the season for….common sense? It is in the Scorpio chart. With Saturn in their sign, Scorpios have entered a new era of year-round common sense. That doesn’t mean the time isn’t ripe for sharing and get-togethers and generosity and goodwill toward men and all the rest of it. Your chart just encourages you to enjoy the season in a common sense way this year.
As December progresses toward mid-month, it also becomes a good time for getting out of your own head or at the very least balancing your inner perceptions with an awareness of what’s actually going on in the external world. Your chart rewards actions taken on the basis of logic rather than imagination or feeling. Why all the emphasis on reason and facts and stuff like that?
Part of it comes from the emphasis on Capricorn in the skies right now. Capricorn is the sign that Saturn rules. Capricorn really likes logic, reason, common sense, facts, reality and not getting carried away with emotion. This month, the sun, Mars, and Pluto will be in Capricorn.
Capricorn is also Scorpio’s sign of language and learning. The month is good for Scorpios who make a living from words, and it’s good for learning a new skill (like a foreign language!) as long as there’s a good practical reason for using the skill in your work or daily life.
Jupiter is also in the language-loving sign of Gemini, and if learning something language-related can give you an edge toward achieving your goals, your chart will happy to help you master the material to be studied. Gemini is also a detached air sign, and Jupiter in Gemini favors stepping back and looking at the big picture and how it impacts your interests. Again, logic over imagination or feelings.
Another gift that Saturn in your sign brings, besides common sense, is placing a value on quality over quantity. You can apply this to your gift-giving of course, but the general principle applies in all aspects of your life these days. You have planetary permission to pursue the highest standards and the finest quality where ever you desire it.
One more thing. Uranus in Aries stations mid-month. Uranus is in charge of exploring potential job opportunities for you. Something could finally become a bit clearer on this front around mid-December. Whatever educational or learning opportunities you have been pursuing could finally pay off.
Happy Birthday Scorpio! I have to tell you, it’s an unusual month astrologically for your birthday this year. The sun is in your sign as usual, of course. But there’s also a solar eclipse in your sign this year, on the 13th. And there’s a lunar eclipse in Gemini on the 28th.
Also, Mercury goes retrograde on the 6th and slides back into your sign on the 14th. Venus doesn’t enter Scorpio until the 21st, a bit later than normal. And Saturn just moved into your sign. In short, there’s a lot going on.
One of Saturn’s jobs is to judge, and he’s a rather severe judge, prone to finding fault and piling on the criticism. He tears down before he builds back up. Now that he’s in your sign, you may become very aware of your own self-judgment or of how judgmental toward others you may be. Venus in your sign will soften this tendency in time for Thanksgiving, fortunately.
But Saturn combined with a solar eclipse indicates that you are entering a new era of your life, and, as part of this new era, you will be asked to evaluate your habits, your policies, the ways in which you are on auto-pilot and need to update your settings.
This November in particular, there’s also activity in the skies around your values. Part of that is due to the sun and Mercury, which visit Sagittarius, your sign of values, every year. But this year, Mars is transiting Sagittarius too. Mars can be a bit problematic in any sector; in your house of values, he can indicate problems with possessions or loss or damage of some sort.
This is normally not too big a deal, but a lunar eclipse in your 8th house (the one in Gemini on the 28th) can indicate the same thing. Take care to lock things up, get ready for winter weather, and don’t leave things lying about. Some of you will already have experienced this, as eclipses can show their effects early, and some won’t experience the effects of this eclipse until the end of the year.
Once Mars leaves Sagittarius for Capricorn on the 16th, he’s in a better spot for your chart. In Capricorn, he’s more likely to energize your physical and mental abilities. Here’s he good for increasing your physical strength (helpful if you’re lugging suitcases around for Thanksgiving travel) and sharpening your memory and ability to concentrate on tasks.
Now for a look at your year ahead. Productive Jupiter is in your solar 8th house until late June of 2013. This is a good spot for Jupiter to be in for you financially. It’s good for investments and for all other sorts of non-salary income. From July on, Jupiter will be in Cancer, less interested in tangible yields than in touchy-feely stuff.
Saturn we’ve already mentioned, but we’ll bring him up again because his influence is likely to be important. Saturn doesn’t just judge; Saturn also rewards. More specifically, Saturn is about consequences. He shows you that if your behavior is worthy, it pays off in the long run. If it isn’t, it catches up with you in the long run.
Partly for this reason, having Saturn in your sign is a good time to do things like take up an exercise regime that demands discipline. Saturn likes that and is willing to show you the benefits of regular effort. Saturn also likes truth and dislikes weakness. If you’ve been letting yourself slide with dodgy habits or lying to yourself, Saturn will be more than willing to show you the adverse consequences of not behaving with integrity and strength. Saturn’s influence will alternate with the influence of Uranus in Aries.
Saturn is cold, deliberate, rational. Uranus in Aries is hot, impulsive, and irrational. Expect to veer between the two modes over the next 6 months, and to experience occasional indecision or indifference as you deal with their contradictory effects. As a side note, Uranus is in your job sector these days, and he likes fields like information technology. You may not like IT as much as he does, but you should at least be prepared to deal with it in your work.
Neptune and Chiron will spend the year trying to gradually heal your romantic and creative natures or perhaps your relationship with your children. Eclipses will bring personal and relationship changes until you end up with the right partner. Pluto will continue to travel through Capricorn, that part of your chart I mentioned earlier that relates to your physical and mental abilities. Overall, if there are two key concepts for the Scorpio year ahead they would be: developing strength and facing consequences.
So let’s start out with all the planets that spend time in your sign this month. The sun moves in on October 22nd. Mercury is in your sign from the 5th through the 28th. Mars is in your sign until the 7th. Saturn moves into your sign on the 5th.
That’s a lot of planets in Scorpio, especially when you haven’t been getting that much planetary attention in recent years. The upshot is that with extra planetary energy at your disposal, you may have an urge to try to do more than is actually possible, simply to try to take advantage. Mercury in a person’s sign often excites this impulse anyway, and now you’ve got Mars and Saturn, and even eclipses in your sign coming up. This adds up to a lot of mental energy and perhaps a desire to do a lot of communicating in one way or another. I say go for it!
It’s also pretty big news for your sign that Libra is finally edging its slow-moving butt out of Libra and into Scorpio. When Saturn moves into your sign, the motto of the next couple of years becomes “try.” Saturn is not like Yoda who says ” do or do not….there is no try.” Saturn recognizes the real possibility of trying and failing, but he thinks you ought to try anyway. Saturn says ‘make the effort.’
In short, pick something to accomplish and try to accomplish it. It doesn’t have to be something earthshaking. You could try to learn how to ski after all these years. The important thing is to keep trying, to not give up until you are thoroughly satisfied that you have explored every possible means of making the effort to master something to your standards. Other examples include getting a more stimulating job (your chart wants more stimulating job tasks), or moving to a livelier neighborhood or bigger city (your chart wants a more challenging environment for you).
Other examples include trying your hand at performing (Neptune in your solar 5th house would like that) or pulling off some business deals (Sagittarius energy this month would like that). Even meeting more people would fit the bill, as long as the goal to be accomplished is a bit scary for you.
Finally, the month has a bit of a religious or prophetic tone to it. At its best, this could make you feel a bit divinely inspired as the month progresses.
About half of September’s influences come from earth and water signs compatible with your own and about half come from air and fire sign energy that is a little more foreign to your sign. The first notable fire sign energy comes from Venus in Leo in your career house. For most people, career matters by their nature involve a bit of stress, but Venus in one’s career sign is usually thought to alleviate that stress a bit. So…if you’ve been having trouble seeing eye to eye with folks in the professional arena, the last three weeks of September provide a time to bridge that gap.
That fire sign influence is balanced out by Mars in your own sign. When Mars is in your sign, you may feel a certain urge to spend money, and spend it impulsively. This is often because you spot bargains or items that you’ve been waiting to buy at a good price. People normally enjoy this aspect of Mars, but of course if you are on a tight budget, do make sure that your proposed bargains are really bargains.
Fire and air energies come back into play with the outer planets, Jupiter, Saturn, and Uranus. When planets are in signs that represent elements on a different wavelength than your own, there are often impulses for change. These are long-lasting influences but when you combine them with Mars in your own sign, the time seems right for action.
For example, you might decide that you want to change your appearance because having a planet in your own sign can represent changes to your outward image. Jupiter in Gemini might also make you want to talk about other kinds of transformation, such as re-doing your lawn or garden. Mars may make you want to actually spend some money on a project like this or hire a consultant. If you are employed, you might want to make drastic changes to your job. If you don’t have a job, you might want to look for one. And so on.
Speaking of jobs, there’s a decent chance, but no guarantee, that there’ll be some movement on this front in September. Uranus in your job sector has been clashing with Pluto off and on for several months. These two planets are still clashing in September. But…Pluto stations and changes direction in mid-September, and sometimes that indicates something’s afoot or that an issue has been resolved. On the other hand, in the interests of full disclosure I must admit that sometimes the square between Uranus and Pluto means that issues will simply continue to drag on unresolved for awhile.
If that’s the case, you can always take refuge in the compatible water sign influence of Neptune in Pisces in your love life house—which is gently and persistently trying to attract people to you and vice versa.
Things seem to be getting under your solar chart’s skin in August. What those things are I’m not certain. It could be things on the job or things relating to relationships, but stuff seems to getting on your chart’s nerves. The clues to your chart’s sense of irritation come from Mars, which starts out the month skulking in your 12th house, brooding perhaps, before he comes bursting into your own sign on the 23rd.
You might as well try to figure out what’s bugging Mars (and by extension, you) so that you can correct it before whatever it is gets out of hand. When Mars moves into your sign, he also heralds something of a new beginning for you. When Mars leaves in early October, Saturn will take his place in Scorpio. In November, you’ll experience the first solar eclipse in your sign in about a decade.
After potentially being stalled for some time, your life is scheduled to start moving again. I won’t say that your life will be completely transformed–but it might be. There are a fair number of indications of transformation over the next 10 months.
On a lighter note, you have a bit of gentle travel energy in August, thanks to Venus in Cancer. If you can’t make an actual trip, maybe an exotic adventure of the mind would do the trick. You could read a history book or delve into a novel or even browse travel sites. You could also research your family history. Just do something pleasant to take your mind away to another realm.
A good time to indulge your inner lazy bones before summer completely goes away would be around the 9th, when Venus and Neptune combine for a trip to fantasyland or maybe just a long, luxurious nap at home.
Now about those potential job irritations I mentioned at the beginning. Pluto and Uranus get increasingly irritated with each other as the month goes on. Uranus is in your job sector and Pluto is in the sector that governs your rational mind. How they will express their displeasure depends of course on your circumstances. A sample manifestation would be that Uranus wants job turnover and instability while Pluto feels threatened by Uranus’s restlessness. Which might mean things like you want to quit because the atmosphere is almost unbearably tense, but Pluto won’t let you because he thinks that would be irrational and imprudent.
There is no easy answer to this kind of dilemma. Do your best to figure out what you can do to deal with the situation and do it. Time will have to take care of the rest. With the help of lots of energy in your career sign this month, you should make out okay if you can figure out how to just hang on.
