Areas of Expansion in 2014 for Scorpio: Education, Travel, Adventure, Worldview, Career, Reputation
Your Scorpio 2014 Horoscope points to areas of life that are destined to expand and grow.
Until July 16, 2014, your belief systems, learning experiences, and hunger for adventure continue to grow and expand at a rapid pace. This is a time in your life when you don't sweat the small stuff as much. You see the broader perspective on life, and you generally feel supported, so that smaller inconveniences don't stress you out quite as easily. Your positive outlook is fabulous during this cycle. Learn as much as you can now, in preparation for the next cycle beginning in July 2014 that puts your career on center stage. You'll want to be prepared!
You might consider fine-tuning your talents and skills with higher education or experience during this cycle. You could be putting more money into these pursuits, educational, spiritual, or travel, or there can be some import-export focus in your business right now.
New learning experiences as well as "life" experiences (travel, adventures, contacts with others of a vastly different culture than yours, and so forth) are likely to emerge. Over the course of the coming year, you might have the opportunity to reach a broader audience. You might choose to learn a new language or take on other studies. Be cautious in January and April, however, when you could experience resistance from others, or when gossip could be part of the picture. There might also be some challenges managing your daily life during this period and you could be lured along a path that has you neglecting important duties and responsibilities.
However, for the most part, you are likely to take advantage of this period in your life. February and May can be especially strong for connecting with others romantically or creatively. Also in May, you can feel on solid footing, as plans come together and dreams are doable.
From July 16th onward, your ambitions, career, business goals, and reputation grow and develop. Your talents and skills are recognized now like never before. All of the hard work you've put in begins to pay off and is rewarded - or at the very least, recognized. This influence will be with you until August 2015.
You are in the limelight in some way during this cycle. Although it's a great period for expansion and recognition on a professional level, and you should take advantage of it, choose your projects carefully. Don't take on more than you can handle. Watch also for gossip or mishandling of information. Be wary of situations that could get blown out of proportion or misunderstood.
Your hard work and effort can be recognized now, and this can be especially true for your talents, reliability, and practical insight. You could find yourself in a position that truly suits you. You can take great pride in the work you do. You may be putting more resources and money into your career pursuits. For some of you, more prestige or a higher social standing may be part of the picture now. You can be quite charismatic in a position of authority or responsibility. Advancement in achieving an important goal can occur now. Your reputation may be enhanced in some significant way. You have more faith in your goals and aspirations during this period of your life.
This is a time when believing in yourself, your competency, and your ability to take the lead opens up opportunities to you.
There may be difficulties with a romantic partner or child who is at odds with the energy and time you are pouring into your career or public life, particularly in August.
However, for the most part, you are likely to take advantage of this period in your life in order to expand your reach. September can be especially strong for practical matters, business, financial improvement, and recognition for past hard work as well as natural talents and skills. This is a time for innovation and progress - thinking outside of the box works to your advantage.
Areas of Contraction and Lessons in Simplicity: Personality, Manner, Body, Outlook, Personal Image
Your Scorpio 2014 Horoscope points to areas of contraction, restriction, and necessary "slimming down" in order to test for stable foundations. There are always areas of life that require more simplicity. Tests may be part of the picture as you learn that life with only growth and expansion can run away with itself.
The area of your life that requires a "back to basics" approach is the sector that rules your personal mannerisms, personality, image, and appearance. It also rules how you initiate things -- your first impulse for coping with day-to-day demands. There may be tests of sorts in these areas of life, as if the universe is checking that the foundations are strong. Things built on weak foundations may very well crack under the pressure of these tests. Those that are strong will endure and strengthen.
This influence began October 5th, 2012, and is with you off and on until September, 2015. It can be felt most strongly earlier or later in the cycle, depending on when you were born.
During this cycle you are likely to be more cautious and, at times, pessimistic. Illusions about the self, the body, and personal abilities will no longer be tolerated. The end result is a newfound identity and a realistic understanding of the self. In terms of career and projects, outward signs of progress may not be as forthcoming, yet the work that you do during this transit will lay a foundation for future success and progress!
It's a strong time for literally slimming down if that's a goal. You can more successfully begin new and improved health regimens, diets, and the like, simply because it is a time when you look in the mirror and see yourself clearly -- instead of what you want to see. You can be more serious during this phase, with more concern for your responsibilities and duties. You are getting in touch with your inner strength. This is a grounding energy that gets you back in touch with reality.
Try not to come across as a heavy during this period -- not everyone is going through the same cycle at the same time as you. However, this influence in 2014 tends to be quite positive overall. Others are seeing you as more responsible, and you might attract a special admirer in part because of this. You are inclined to view creative projects in a more practical light, and could quite successfully work on bringing more structure to them, building a strong foundation for future profits. A pastime can be turned into a profitable venture. You can work harder and with more concentration on personal projects at this time. Some of you could become authorities or masters at a particular skill or topic. Self-discipline comes more naturally.
Strength of conviction can be especially strong in May. This is also a good time for communications, higher education, legal affairs, and travel. June and August are especially strong for solidifying relationships and bringing structure to creative projects.
The best way to handle Saturn's transit through your sign is to meet your responsibilities to the best of your ability. Do take a closer look at the areas you've allowed to slide, and listen to your feelings of disappointment, but don't let this turn into regret or resentment. Instead, focus on making improvements and keep in mind the long-term. Short-sightedness now can get you into trouble. Impatience will not be rewarded. Think in terms of the long view.
Areas of Excitement, Innovation, Independence, and Speed: Work, Daily Routines, Service, health, Self-Care
Your 2014 Scorpio Horoscope points to areas of your life that seem to speed up so that you are able to take some risks, innovate, and revolutionize.
In March 2011, you entered a lengthy period in which your work, daily routines, and health may be unpredictable and unusual, but also inspiring and exciting. This influences continues throughout 2014. You can bring fresh insight into your work now, although you might be impatient with rules and schedules. Daily routines can be chaotic and your energy tends to be up and down.
Ultimately, you are looking for a more authentic expression of yourself on the level of work, and while it can be a little chaotic for now, you are learning to tap into your "inner genius". While some of you may be more interested in alternative health practices, many of you may be ignoring important health routines. Watch for carelessness with your health. Try to keep regular health appointments.
Sudden changes or upsets are more likely in February, April, and December, when chaos can rule in your daily life (but only if you let it). Watch for provocative or temperamental comments, which can get you into trouble with co-workers, neighbors, and relatives. You have a low threshold for boredom at times this year, and while inner restlessness can certainly push you to make important changes, it can also attract some trouble if you are living on auto-pilot and not consciously directing your energies into productive channels.
The more positive influences of this transit are easier to come by in September, when recognition for your less orthodox or traditional ideas may be forthcoming. You are innovative and progressive, and this can help you to advance your goals.
Areas of Change, Purging, & Transformation: Communications, Transportation, Personality, Partnerships, Work, Inner Life
Your 2014 Scorpio Horoscope reveals areas of life in which change and transformation take place. It's a time for "out with the old, in with the new".
Communications, learning, and daily life continue to transform this year. This can be an excellent period for studies, writing, and communicating, especially in February, when you are especially creative and seem to have your finger on the pulse of what others are feeling and wanting. However, there may be some challenges in April and December, due to a chaotic daily life and lack of structure. Sudden events or circumstances can leave you feeling a little insecure. Watch especially in January, April, and November for a tendency to be a little too provocative in your communications, which can be misconstrued or work against you.
In 2014, your personality and your partnerships continue to evolve in important ways. How you define "me" and "you" is transforming. Issues of personal courage, confidence, and independence come to the fore in 2014. Matters surrounding personal appearance, your body, and your image become especially important. Basically, you will be learning to stand on your own two feet! For some, marriage or divorce will be an issue. For many, carving out a personal identity that includes a significant other who furthers their own personal growth will come into focus. With the North Node in your sign until February 18th, your challenge is to learn how to rely on yourself, which ultimately will bring you joy and opportunity.
Additionally, service to others, work, daily routines, and health are evolving in important ways this year. You are learning about self-care through improving your daily routines, bringing more order and organization to your life, and taking better care of your health. Watch for bad habits that affect your health. Recognizing your personal limitations in terms of just how much you can give to others and just how much compassion and understanding you can show is essential now. You are also learning to rid yourself of guilt about under-performing, and to develop faith and trust in a larger more spiritual plan. It's time to let go of some of your fears that you are not doing enough, to develop more compassion and understanding of others, and to be humble, feeling safe in the knowledge that you (and others) are not perfect.
