scorpio the scorpionOverview.

Until the 22nd, the Sun continues to transit your solar second house. This is the most "financial" period of the year for you. You might have a more materialistic view of life for the time being, or you have an increased interest in your own possessions, during this cycle. You are more attracted to objects and possessions that give you a sense of comfort, status, or luxury now. You probably should be on the lookout for a tendency to create your own financial stress due to extravagant spending habits. At this point in the year, you are unlikely to take many risks, and you can be quite resistant to change. This is a time when "comfort zones" are more important to you than usual--you value the familiar.

From the 22nd, the Sun is illuminating your communications sector, suggesting "busy-ness" and movement. You are exploring and searching now, making connections, and paying attention to your immediate environment. Social interaction is emphasized during this period, and is for the most part light-hearted. Give other people a little extra time and attention, notice their efforts on your behalf, and strengthen your connections. You are more curious and alert than usual, and you could be quite busy with errands, paperwork, phone calls, and light socializing. Much energy is expended in understanding and adapting to your immediate environment. Siblings, neighbors, close relatives, friends, and co-workers may play a more important role than usual in your life during this cycle. You are more interested in exploring your own neighborhood than you are a different country. This is not a time of big adventure-seeking. Rather, it's a time of little adventures close to home. Neither is this a time when you are especially focused. In fact, you could have a finger in many pies right now. You are especially resourceful now, and you could find yourself enjoying (or seeking) attention for your intellectual know-how. The ability to express and communicate your ideas is extremely important to you at this time. You are eager to investigate new things, whether scientific or technical.

A strong financial month is in store for you, dear Scorpio. Monetary problems from the past may clear up, especially in the first three weeks of December. A major purchase or sale is very possible. A significant gift or bonus could also come your way. This is a good time to rally for a raise, apply for a loan, or take part in various dealings with financial institutions. You may need to curb an inclination to overspend--feeling good could bring you to the stores as you temporarily forget about the future!

Jupiter joins with Pluto in late Sagittarius before entering Capricorn on the 18th (Pluto will follow suit in January). This alignment represents a culmination of matters in the area of our charts in which it occurs. Jupiter and Pluto have been working through this sector for some time now, re-working your attitude towards these areas of your life. An increased need for shared interests with others, as well as for adventurous or risky undertakings, is with us now as we strive for more personal significance. Benefits may come through those in authority or the government. This can be an ambitious time when a desire for success is especially strong. The ability to sway or persuade can be enhanced. One of the most positive uses of this transit is a drive to better ourselves. We might solve a problem that has been in existence for some time, or capitalize upon a resource that was previously hidden. Social or material goals may come into strong focus, and reform could figure now. Our faith may be reborn or developed strongly. We might decide to invest our time and energy (and possibly money) into an ambitious new project. We should take advantage of the increased drive this transit brings, but avoid tendencies towards self-righteousness, exaggeration, and obsession. This transit generally favors big business, the law, grants, taxes, education, and commerce. Increased influence, faith, and insight are likely now. For you, personal income and possessions, as well as feelings of comfort and security, are in focus and strong. Now is the time to take these matters to a new level. Grab--and make--opportunities in these areas of life.

Jupiter entering earthy Capricorn this month is beneficial for you, as Jupiter is now in a creative sextile (or moving towards a sextile) to your Sun and entering your third house. Jupiter changes sign approximately once a year, so this ingress is significant and represents a new shift of energy that will stay with you until January 2009. From now until then, educational and communication opportunities present themselves. During this long-term trend, neighbors or relatives could be beneficial. You convey your ideas with more enthusiasm, and they are received well. You are able to understand complex subjects and explain them in such a way that others can readily understand. Opportunities for travel or advanced study may present themselves. This might be a good time to learn a foreign language or to take a course to brush up your skills. You may decide to buy a new car. Benefits come through visits, short trips, messages, emails, or they could come through contacts with siblings, classmates, kin, and neighbors. Some sort of positive news or announcement is likely to be part of the picture. If you're an author, you will find many opportunities and creative flow. If you're a student, school is especially favored. If you're in commerce, you are likely to discover that sales are especially strong; if you work in science, you are likely to gather important information that advances your research. These positive circumstances won't necessarily fall into your lap, and are unlikely to come all at once. You need to keep your eyes open for opportunities in these areas of life.

Mars continues to retrograde this month (all month). This retrograde period extends to January 30th, 2008. Even though the retrograde period officially lasts from November 15/07-January 30/08, the retrograde "zone" is in effect from September 16/07-April 4/08. For you, enthusiasm for higher education, travel, your personal philosophy, or adventure in general may wane, perhaps due to some problems or setbacks in these areas of life. Some projects may stall, or you could find that you are less confident about expressing yourself in adventurous ways. Your outlook on life in terms of the "bigger picture" could be more cautious, and you might find that you temporarily have less faith. Refocus, backtracking, and review become necessary and recommended now.

Venus warms your solar first house from the 5-30. The benefits of this position are the strongest from the 5-14, when Venus is directly on your Sun. You could find it hard to deny yourself anything during this cycle! This is a time when you naturally let loose your softer, receptive side. Romantic matters, as well as pleasure-seeking activities, come to the fore now. You are more likely to pay closer attention to your physical appearance and mannerisms, aiming to improve and enhance your attractiveness. Others find you agreeable and cooperative.

From the 1-20, Mercury working through your solar second house suggests that this is a strong period for analyzing your cash flow, income, and earning power. You are more practical and rational in your approach to finances now. With your conscious mind focused on money and possessions, as well as personal values, this can be a strong period for gathering new money-making ideas. Alternatively, it could be a time when you tend to fret over your finances. Conversations tend to be practical rather than frivolous now. Financial gain may come through communications.

Mercury transits your solar third house from the 20th. Mercury is right at home in the third house, and offers a natural curiosity, facility with words, and the ability to multi-task successfully. More time spent on the phone, writing emails, in the car making short frequent trips, chatting, running errands, communicating with neighbors and siblings, visiting friends and relatives, and doing paperwork is likely now. There can also be a tendency to fuss over insignificant matters now, however. Also, "information overload" is also a possibility. This may be a busy time with neighbors, classmates, siblings, and community affairs. Your interests are especially varied now, and perhaps scattered. It's an ideal time to pick up information from your environment and the people in it, as your tendency is toward a certain level of intellectual detachment just now. Your mind is often distracted, particularly when circumstances call for you to stick to routine, so this is not the best transit for focusing on one task or project. Your mind is especially inquisitive during this cycle, when learning, short trips, and other forms of communication and making connections, appeal strongly. Some are fidgety or nervous during this cycle, perhaps due to increased errand-running, phone calls, and the like. Others enjoy the challenge of tackling a variety of subjects. As well, talking, writing, and studying can be good ways to handle stress.

Mars energizes your solar ninth house all month. Note that Mars will be activating and re-activating a small area our charts until April 2008 due to its retrograde cycle. It's a fabulous time for promoting your ideas and beliefs, although coming on too strong could work against you. If you can't travel, you'll feel like doing so, or at least travel in your mind, simply because you have a great urge to expand your horizons in some manner. Energies thrown toward recreation, travel, or just cooking up great new ideas are well spent and serve to refresh and renew your vitality. Creative projects can flourish with enlarged focus and redoubled efforts that somehow don't tire you out. Time flies when you're having fun and leaves you with more vigor than when you began. Big, ambitious, adventurous ideas can come to you in a rush during this cycle, propelled by the urge to do something you've never done before. Challenges with these areas of life are more likely while Mars is retrograde, however, all month and extending into the new year. Your focus remains in this area of life, but caution and perhaps anxiety or confusion begin to dominate. You might feel less confident or you could simply feel more cautious now.

Highlights:

November 30-December 1 Sun squares Saturn. Pushing forward aggressively simply doesn't work now. Delays or setbacks are likely, but are reminders that sometimes we need to slow down and regroup. For you, this can be a potentially challenging time for communications (misunderstandings or frustrating news could figure) and for career matters. Increased responsibilities could feel temporarily overwhelming. Avoid confrontations with authority.

December 2-4 Venus sextiles Jupiter and Pluto; and the Sun sextiles Chiron. A sense of meaning and purposefulness imbues our relationships now. Confidence is strong. For you, partnering is especially strong and agreeable. Negotiations run very well. Money matters are also positive. You might receive a gift now. Career opportunities arise from humble confidence.

December 6-7 Mercury squares Saturn and the Sun squares Uranus. These are not ideal energies during which to push forward with new plans, simply because circumstances, or other people, are resistant and rebellious. For you, tension between professional and personal/family matters is likely to figure now. Some strain in a friendship is also possible.

December 6-7 Your Personal New Moon. A new personal cycle begins for you, and you feel fresh and re-energized. It's all about you now, so it's time to put your best foot forward. A blast of personal energy comes your way, and showing your leadership skills works for you now. You are at your most convincing, as others are accepting you at face value. Some people find that the Moon in their sign brings with it a restless, discontented, and emotional state, and that there is more on their plate than they expected or wanted. If this is the case for you, remember that these feelings are there because you need to make a change, however big or small. Use it to stimulate activity and positive change.

December 8-9 Monthly money and income peak. You're looking at the world in terms of value and worth now, and what you have (or don't have) is on your mind. Money issues pop up now—the discovery of a way to increase your income, an unexpected gift or reward, or a brief and tiny financial crisis that motivates you to find new ways to make money are possible.

December 9 New Moon in Sagittarius in your solar second house affects you until January's New Moon. Heightened sensitivity to the world of the five senses, to your physical environment, and to the security you gain from the solid ground you have built for yourself is in order for this period of time. Attunement to, and appreciation of, the physical world of the senses is the focus, and this is a time to start fresh in terms of how you arrange your life in order to feel a sense of value and worthiness. Financial issues come into focus. Setting realistic financial goals, as well as formulating such things as budgets and other sensible financial planning projects, will be favored during this time. Discovering ways to increase your income is featured. It is also a wonderful time for taking moments to pleasure yourself through earthy, tactile, and comforting endeavors.

December 11-13 Jupiter conjuncts Pluto, Venus trines Mars, the Sun and Mercury sextile Neptune, and Venus sextiles Saturn. This is a very creative combination. Determination and drive are with us, as well as the chance to relate harmoniously to others. Imagination is also at a peak. For you, opportunities in matters related to money, security, and personal possessions arise now. It's a strong period for all personal initiatives and projects--launching a project dear to your heart can figure now. It's also an excellent time for career and work matters in general.

December 15-16 Romance and pleasure are highlights right now with the Moon in your solar fifth. The Moon is in your element, and so are you! The flowing, expressive, and spontaneous energy surrounding you attracts like-minded (and hearted) people. Be sure to take time to enjoy yourself, preferably around others! Keywords: romance, creativity, spontaneity, pleasure, self-expression.

December 19-20 Mercury conjuncts Jupiter and Pluto, and the Sun conjuncts Pluto. This is a period of intense discovery. New insights into old problems or new ideas altogether are found now and are likely to be very transformational (for some even life-changing).

December 20-21 Your partnerships are highlighted right now, and it's time to compromise. Insecurities in your partnerships are brought to light now, and the best way to handle this is to understand that you need others instead of competing for the floor. Some people find this time of the lunar month an energy sapper, as they feel ignored or unnoticed. Trying to go it alone won't work just now. The spotlight is on other people for the time being, and it's best to let them shine. Concentrate on truly listening to those close to you, and on playing a supportive role. Perhaps not a time to be make a presentation or to come on strong to the world. You are feeling reflective rather than expressive.

December 23 A Full Moon occurs today in early Cancer in your solar ninth house. This Full Moon is brimming with opportunities as it occurs at the same time as a conjunction between the Sun and Jupiter. Your attention to the logical world of reason has been a focus in the last two weeks. Now you feel a crisis of lack. Your personal beliefs may be tested now. Your impulses and faith matter, and all of the attention you've been giving to mundane affairs has you wondering when you're going to have some fun. You want to take a leap of faith now. Your adventurous side pushes up and out, demanding attention.

December 26-27 Monthly career and reputation peak. Your credibility is important at this time of the lunar month, and efforts at self-promotion might be made now. This is the time when you're noticed for what you've done or haven't done. Do your best to be in top form, make career adjustments if needed, and don't be afraid to show others exactly what you're made of. You're at your best when you are showing the world your practical, competent, and responsible side.

Scorpio (Born October 24 to November 2) and Scorpio Ascendant 0 to 10 degrees Scorpio:

November 2007: Scorpio Horoscope: Love, Career, & General Trends
 

November

 

Overview.

Until the 22nd, the Sun illuminates your first house, bringing issues surrounding your personal identity, appearance, outward behavior, and self-expression to the forefront. Spontaneity of expression is what this transit is about. Increased energy and a renewed feeling of confidence is with you now, so take advantage. It's a great period for doing something entirely new and pioneering—to go solo in some area of your life. You are in the position to make an impression on others. You have presence and you project confidence.

The Sun highlights your second house from the 22nd, and your focus is on material affairs and comfort issues. Security is a driving force for you right now, and you might find that you are especially interested in accumulating possessions. What you have and what you don't have come into focus--what makes you feel comfortable, your sense of security, and what you value. This is the time of year when personal finances and possessions receive maximum attention. Pour your energy into your work and your finances, and you might just be able to take your ideas to the bank. Extravagance with your pocketbook is something you may want to look out for, however. If you find yourself itching to make unnecessary purchases, know that at the root of this urge is the desire to pamper and comfort yourself. Nothing wrong with it, but there are inexpensive (and even free) ways to make yourself feel good. This is not the most eventful time of year for you. You are more inclined to dig your heels in and hang on to what makes you feel most secure than to take big risks.

A feeling that you have been missing important information, or that secrets have been kept from you, lifts this month and you are more confident about your perceptions and hunches. Love this month is privately delicious. Romantic secrets and sacrifices keep you feeling vital and irreplaceable. Career opportunities continue to seek you out. Friends are more demanding of your time, but increased social responsibilities make you feel needed! From the 15th, avoid making travel or educational plans--try to wrap these matters up in the first two weeks of November so as to avoid delays.

Mercury ends its retrograde period that occurred from October 11-November 1, picking up speed and "revisiting" some of the aspects it made to planets before and during the retrograde period. This gives us all a chance to get projects and communications back on track.

Mars, however, turns retrograde this month, on November 15th. This retrograde period extends to January 30th, 2008. Even though the retrograde period officially lasts from November 15/07-January 30/08, the retrograde "zone" is in effect from September 16/07-April 4/08. For you, enthusiasm for higher education, travel, your personal philosophy, or adventure in general may wane, perhaps due to some problems or setbacks in these areas of life. Some projects may stall, or you could find that you are less confident about expressing yourself in adventurous ways. Your outlook on life in terms of the "bigger picture" could be more cautious, and you might find that you temporarily have less faith. Refocus, backtracking, and review become necessary and recommended now.

Your rulers, Pluto and Mars, form stimulating connections to Venus, the Sun, and Mercury this month on the 2-3, 8-9, 22, and 27, representing opportunity periods for you. The 2-3 and 22 are all excellent days for your powers of attraction. Venus receives and collects, and with your rulers in harmonious contact with Venus on these dates, it's a good time to charm, soothe, and receive. These dates are also strong for close partnerships, whether it's to attract one or to enhance an existing relationship. The 8-9 is strong for communicating your ideas and for hearing good news as well. On the 27th, career matters are swimming and earning admiration and respect comes easily. Red flag periods--times when you are not received as well as you would like, or are prone to impulsive, hasty, or ill-timed behavior--occur on the 4-6, 19-20, and 28, when you may feel neglected, slighted, or unappreciated. On the 4-6, career and partnering matters may be frustrating. In general, ego bruising or feeling slighted could figure now, and negotiations don't run especially well. The 19-20 could be quite stressful although very active. Others are cantankerous and you could be quite moody and impulsive. The 28th could be tense on a communications level. Misrepresentation is possible.

Opportunity periods for personal finances occur on the 19th. Speculation and new financial initiatives are best avoided on the 16-17, when financial decision-making is unclear.

As far as romantic and creative matters are concerned, opportunities to enhance or attract romance occur on the 4, 19, 25-26, and 29. These are power days for personal magnetism, charisma, and creativity. Issues that could be annoying or disconcerting concerning romantic matters are more likely to occur on the 11-12, 16, and 24. These would be less than ideal days to go on a first date, for example. With regard to your serious partnerships, long-term relationships tend to thrive on the 2, 18, and 25-27. Use these days for strengthening your connection or attracting a serious partnership. Tensions in close partnerships are more likely on the 4-6, 12, 19-20, and 29.

Better times to schedule job interviews or health appointments, and for success and happiness on the job, occur on the 2-4 and 27. Red flag periods for these matters occur on the 19-20 and 28, when you should probably avoid scheduling health appointments or job interviews if feasible. Matters related to your career and reputation tend to thrive on the 4, 7, 27, and 29. Challenges with these matters are more likely to occur on the 3, 5, 11, 19-21, and 30 when others, especially authority figures and the public, may not see you in the most favorable light!

Venus continues to transit your solar eleventh house until the 8th, where she enlivens your friendships and group associations with charm and grace. You are likely to enjoy a strong feeling of happiness and solidarity in friendship, or with groups of like-minded individuals. You are more peace-loving than usual and slightly detached on a personal level. If a romance were to occur during this time frame, it would be characterized by a strong feeling of camaraderie, but it could also be rather impersonal and perhaps lacking in depth and intimacy.

Venus warms your solar twelfth house from the 8th. Venus is spending some time in "hibernation" in your privacy sector. Now, this doesn't necessarily mean that your love life is stagnant, but that your affection is expressed behind closed doors. Attraction to secrets and whispers characterize this period, although for some, it can also be a time of endings, relationship concerns, and wistfulness. Personal and social contacts may be secretive, and there can be secret love affairs, or at least very private love feelings and longings. Shyness can lead to some loneliness or romantic frustration. However, this can also be a deliciously private and intimate time.

Mercury continues to transit your solar twelfth house until the 11th. Your mind is focused on private matters and past issues. You're searching behind the curtain, and examining the past for answers. This is a good time for research, quiet contemplation, and meditation; but do avoid being dragged down by issues that have outgrown their worth and purpose. Examining the past in order to improve the future is certainly worthwhile, as long as you don't waste your energy on guilt.

Mercury transits your solar first house from the 11th. This is a period in which you are most inclined to speak up about matters that you previously were only mulling over. Your disposition is more intellectual than usual now, and self-expression comes easy. You are sharper than usual--more observant, and more inclined to "live in the head". Relationships with siblings, neighbors, classmates, and casual friends may become more prominent in your life now. It is likely that you will initiate discussions during this period, evaluate your appearance and the impact you have on those around you, and make contact with others rather than stay chained to any one place or activity. This is the time to be direct and to communicate your needs and interests. You are more inclined to talk about yourself and your personal past now. This may also be a restless time when it is difficult to turn the thinking process off when it would be better to relax! It is an especially fruitful time for any endeavor that requires dealing with words, ideas, and facts and figures. Your demeanor is more youthful, perhaps mischievous, lighthearted, and non-threatening so that others may be more inclined to turn to you for advice or pleasant conversation. Using the power of words to attract what you want or to further your interests works best for you now.

Mars continues to energize your solar ninth house all month. Note that Mars will be activating and re-activating a small area our charts until April 2008 due to its retrograde cycle. It's a fabulous time for promoting your ideas and beliefs, although coming on too strong could work against you. If you can't travel, you'll feel like doing so, or at least travel in your mind, simply because you have a great urge to expand your horizons in some manner. Energies thrown toward recreation, travel, or just cooking up great new ideas are well spent and serve to refresh and renew your vitality. Creative projects can flourish with enlarged focus and redoubled efforts that somehow don't tire you out. Time flies when you're having fun and leaves you with more vigor than when you began. Big, ambitious, adventurous ideas can come to you in a rush during this cycle, propelled by the urge to do something you've never done before. Challenges with these areas of life are more likely while Mars is retrograde, however, beginning November 15th and extending into the new year. Your focus remains in this area of life, but caution and perhaps anxiety or confusion begin to dominate. You might feel less confident or you could simply feel more cautious now.

Highlights:

October 31-November 2 Mercury stations and turns direct on November 1st. Holding off on important discussions, interviews, or contracts is probably wise right now, as thinking is foggy and misunderstandings are likely. As Mercury moves forward and regains speed over the next couple of weeks, we can more easily get projects off the ground.

November 1-2 Monthly career and reputation peak. Your credibility is important at this time of the lunar month, and efforts at self-promotion might be made now. This is the time when you're noticed for what you've done or haven't done. Do your best to be in top form, make career adjustments if needed, and don't be afraid to show others exactly what you're made of. You're at your best when you are showing the world your practical, competent, and responsible side.

November 3-6 Challenges and gains occur in the areas of personal initiatives, career, and professional activities for you now with the Sun and Venus in hard aspect to Chiron and Pluto and the Sun in flowing aspect to Mars. Problems encountered now can lead to greater insight and better conditions, however.

November 8-9 Your Personal New Moon. A new personal cycle begins for you, and you feel fresh and re-energized. It's all about you now, so it's time to put your best foot forward. A blast of personal energy comes your way, and showing your leadership skills works for you now. You are at your most convincing, as others are accepting you at face value. Some people find that the Moon in their sign brings with it a restless, discontented, and emotional state, and that there is more on their plate than they expected or wanted. If this is the case for you, remember that these feelings are there because you need to make a change, however big or small. Use it to stimulate activity and positive change.

November 9 New Moon in Scorpio in your solar first house affects you until December's New Moon. This New Moon placement is a powerful one—it's a time to reinvent yourself in some personal way, such as with a new look or manner of expressing and presenting yourself. This is a personally busy time of year, when you feel energetic and enthusiastic. Think about how you present yourself to others, focus on changing personal habits in such a way as to improve your confidence in yourself, and concentrate on putting your best foot forward, as this is a time when you will get noticed and make a personal impression on others. However, factor in the importance of authenticity in your presentation of yourself. You do not have to, of course, reveal all of yourself to others, but the sign of Aries associated with the first house reminds us of the importance of acting on our impulses and believing in ourselves. This is a time when you can be brave and enjoy new experiences.

November 11-12 Monthly money and income peak. You're looking at the world in terms of value and worth now, and what you have (or don't have) is on your mind. Money issues pop up now—the discovery of a way to increase your income, an unexpected gift or reward, or a brief and tiny financial crisis that motivates you to find new ways to make money are possible.

November 11-12 Matters previously hidden may come to light now, and disappointments are possible, with Neptune in hard aspect to the Sun and Venus. Keep it simple. Avoid jumping to conclusions, and put off (if you can) major new initiatives for a more auspicious date. We are not seeing things clearly now. For you, challenges and increased activity in a romance, with your children if applicable, or concerning creative and recreational endeavors occur now. Deceptions or self-deceptions in a partnership or on the job can come to light now.

November 14-16 Mars is stationary retrograde. See above Monthly Overview for details.

November 18-19 Romance and pleasure are highlights right now with the Moon in your solar fifth. The Moon is in your element, and so are you! The flowing, expressive, and spontaneous energy surrounding you attracts like-minded (and hearted) people. Be sure to take time to enjoy yourself, preferably around others! Keywords: romance, creativity, spontaneity, pleasure, self-expression.

November 22-23 Your partnerships are highlighted right now, and it's time to compromise. Insecurities in your partnerships are brought to light now, and the best way to handle this is to understand that you need others instead of competing for the floor. Some people find this time of the lunar month an energy sapper, as they feel ignored or unnoticed. Trying to go it alone won't work just now. The spotlight is on other people for the time being, and it's best to let them shine. Concentrate on truly listening to those close to you, and on playing a supportive role. Perhaps not a time to be make a presentation or to come on strong to the world. You are feeling reflective rather than expressive.

November 24 A Full Moon occurs today in early Gemini in your solar eighth house. This Full Moon is all about give and take. What makes you feel comfortable and secure needs to be balanced with attention to other people's needs and comfort levels. It's a good time to settle some of your debts, financial or otherwise. You may be in a position wherein you are forced to make a financial settlement or large outlay of cash; or, you may find that you are leaned upon for support, financial or otherwise.

November 25-26 Venus trines Neptune. This is a strong period for compassionate understanding and generosity of spirit--when we are more able to rise above insecurities and selfishness in order to embrace others and life more peacefully. It can also be a romantic and creative period. For you, this can be a highly romantic time for a partnership, and a strong period for negotiating in general. Uncovering helpful information that was previously hidden or finding a lost item can also figure now. Romantic expression is strong now. Singles shouldn't hide away.

November 28-29 Monthly career and reputation peak. Your credibility is important at this time of the lunar month, and efforts at self-promotion might be made now. This is the time when you're noticed for what you've done or haven't done. Do your best to be in top form, make career adjustments if needed, and don't be afraid to show others exactly what you're made of. You're at your best when you are showing the world your practical, competent, and responsible side.

November 30-December 1 Sun squares Saturn. Pushing forward aggressively simply doesn't work now. Delays or setbacks are likely, but are reminders that sometimes we need to slow down and regroup. For you, this can be a potentially challenging time for communications (misunderstandings or frustrating news could figure) and for career matters. Increased responsibilities could feel temporarily overwhelming. Avoid confrontations with authority.

October

 

Overview.

Until the 23rd, the Sun "hibernates" in your solar twelfth house. This is a time when you recharge your batteries, rest up, reflect, and perhaps close matters that have run their natural course. During this cycle, a sense of personal fulfillment is reinforced by resolving subconscious influences or matters from the past. You will instinctively withdraw from the hustle and bustle of daily life in an attempt to get to know yourself, your goals, and your needs better. This is an imaginative, perhaps dreamy, time of the year. Some may indulge in self-pity at this time, but as long as they pull strength from it, it might simply be a healthy process. You need time alone now in order to sort things out and to avoid overload!

The Sun illuminates your first house from the 23rd, bringing issues surrounding your personal identity, appearance, outward behavior, and self-expression to the forefront. This marks the height of your physical solar cycle, and you are in the position to make an impression on others, and to assert your personal influence beyond its normal boundaries. Spontaneity of expression is what this transit is about. You are ready to put your past behind you and to start a new personal cycle. You have presence and you project confidence. Increased energy and a renewed feeling of confidence is with you now, so take advantage. It's a great month to do something entirely new and pioneering—to go solo in some area of your life. This particular season of the year smiles on your personal endeavors. This is a time when you more easily get in touch with a true sense of your identity and purpose. The most enterprising side of your nature pushes up and out, and it's time to seize opportunities. Problems in your life may be overcome by bravery, self-assertion, and directness. There's nothing wrong with a bit of self-centeredness during this cycle, but avoid taking it too far. It's not the best time for team work and other cooperative endeavors. The spotlight is on you and your ability to lead, so make it a good one! Take steps to improve how you come across to others. It's time to carve your own path in life.

You enjoy a special fondness for your friends this month, as well as for anything new and unusual. Nevertheless, privacy and down time will be needed in order to regroup. Wrapping up projects and efforts that have run their natural course is in order. Harmony in love is most explicit on the 2-4th. You are turned to as an authority and looked upon favorably by superiors on the 19-20th. A financial deal regarding house and property could come through. A partner has an important declaration, or requires special attention, around the 26th.

Mercury retrogrades from October 11-November 1. All Mercury retrograde cycles particularly affect you in terms of communications with friends or groups, as well as intimate communications and shared financial resources, because Mercury rules these areas of your life. It would be wise to be especially clear when it comes to financial transactions and personal communications with friends, or, better yet, take this time to re-budget or rethink your plans instead of taking premature action. Group meetings may be postponed or cancelled, and friends may seem distant or confused. This Mercury Retrograde cycle affects your first house of personal appearance and mannerisms and your twelfth house of privacy and all that lies below the surface of things. For the time being, you may not feel that your intuition is serving you well. Perhaps you're picking up the wrong cues or reading too much into situations, particularly with regards to finances and with friends and groups. Be as non-judgmental as you can, but do keep an eye out for deceptiveness and falseness in others. Mercury is retrograde in your sign for part of the cycle. Others might misunderstand what you have to say, and misread your body language as well. Don't worry too much if others aren't quite "getting" you for the time being. Things will change once Mercury turns direct, so you might decide to try to keep status quo for the time being.

Your rulers, Pluto and Mars, form stimulating connections to Venus, Mercury, and the Sun this month on the 2-4, 15-17, 19-20, and 26-27, representing opportunity periods for you. A strong opportunity for attraction, negotiation, and partnering occurs on the 2-4. On the 15-17, your social skills are top notch as well. Finances thrive and partnerships flourish. The 19-20 is strong for earning respect and reward. Career matters are also strong. Good news arrives on the 26-27. Red flag periods--times when you are not received as well as you would like, or are prone to impulsive, hasty, or ill-timed behavior--occur on the 9th, when you may feel neglected, slighted, or unappreciated. Conflict with a child or lover may be part of the picture.

Opportunity periods for personal finances occur on the 8 and 30-31. Speculation and new financial initiatives are best avoided on the 9-10, 21, and 26-29, when financial decision-making is unclear.

As far as romantic and creative matters are concerned, opportunities to enhance or attract romance occur on the 12-13 and 25-28. These are power days for personal magnetism, charisma, and creativity. Issues that could be annoying or disconcerting concerning romantic matters are more likely to occur on the 7-10. These would be less than ideal days to go on a first date, for example. With regard to your serious partnerships, long-term relationships tend to thrive on the 2-4 and 13-17. Use these days for strengthening your connection or attracting a serious partnership. Tensions in close partnerships are more likely on the 20, 24-25, and 28-29.

Better times to schedule job interviews or health appointments, and for success and happiness on the job, occur on the 6-7 and 15-17. Red flag periods for these matters occur on the 8-9, when you should probably avoid scheduling health appointments or job interviews if feasible. Matters related to your career and reputation tend to thrive on the 3-4, 7-8, 12, 19-20, and 29-30. Challenges with these matters are more likely to occur on the 13, 23-24, and 26-27, when others, especially authority figures and the public, may not see you in the most favorable light!

Venus continues to move through your solar tenth house until the 8th. You are more socially ambitious than usual during this cycle. Attention is drawn to your professional manner or your personal relationships become more public. More opportunities to socialize and network could present themselves now, or circumstances are such that you need to draw upon your diplomacy skills in order to advance.

Venus transits your solar eleventh house from the 8th forward. Forming harmonious, warm social friendships, possibly related to group activities within a club, can figure now. You may meet someone through such group activities; consequently, your interests will be shared. Whether or not you do, the bottom line is that sharing interests with someone is what makes you happy during this cycle. Venus here enlivens your friendships and group associations with charm and grace. You are more peace-loving than usual and slightly detached on a personal level. If a romance were to begin during this time frame, it would be characterized by a strong feeling of camaraderie, but it could also be rather impersonal and perhaps lacking in depth and intimacy.

Mercury continues to transit your solar first house until the 23rd, and then dips back into your solar twelfth house. This is a cycle in which you tend to talk more readily, particularly about your own personal likes and dislikes or your personal past. Your demeanor is light-hearted and curious, and others might turn to you for advice, as you appear to be more rational than usual. This is the time of year when you can most easily use the power of words to attract what you want for yourself. Note that from the 11th to November 1st, Mercury is retrograde and can stir up some challenges with these matters.

Mars energizes your solar ninth house all month. During this period, you are especially enthusiastic and more bold than usual. Some restlessness and hunger for adventure is experienced now. Essentially, you are looking to expand your activities, and you may find that you have a lot of energy for higher studies, travel, or simply new subjects. Negative potentials include being excessively opinionated or getting easily fired up over differences in points of view, or legal fights.

Highlights:

October 2-4 Operative energies include the Sun trine Chiron and Venus trine Pluto. This is a strong period for career and reputation matters, as well as for close personal relationships. It's a time when you and a partner blend well, or when you more readily attract a close partner.

October 5-6 Monthly career and reputation peak. Your credibility is important at this time of the lunar month, and efforts at self-promotion might be made now. This is the time when you're noticed for what you've done or haven't done. Do your best to be in top form, make career adjustments if needed, and don't be afraid to show others exactly what you're made of. You're at your best when you are showing the world your practical, competent, and responsible side.

October 10-12 Mercury is stationary retrograde now, and will remain retrograde until November 1st--a cycle when rethinking matters is the name of the game. When Mercury is stationary, as it is now, it's especially important to prepare for possible breakdowns in communication. Back up your computer, double-check your paperwork, and remember that you may not have all the necessary information to make big decisions for the time being. Avoid signing contracts or deals, as they may not work out as you expected, or they might need revision later.

October 11 New Moon in Libra in your solar twelfth house affects you until November's New Moon. This is a period of review, letting go, and recharging one's spiritual and, in effect, physical "batteries". Focus, now, is on fulfillment through service, empathy, and awareness of other's needs; but it can also be a time of withdrawal and some sort of retreat in a social sense, depending on your personal and natural predisposition. Some kind of soul-searching is in order, and the urge to find some level of emotional peace of mind will be apparent. This is a more sensitive position of the New Moon, and it is best to find some sort of peace for the soul in preparation for the New Moon in the first house—a period that is more active and busy than this one. 

October 12-13 Your Personal New Moon. A new personal cycle begins for you, and you feel fresh and re-energized. It's all about you now, so it's time to put your best foot forward. A blast of personal energy comes your way, and showing your leadership skills works for you now. You are at your most convincing, as others are accepting you at face value. Some people find that the Moon in their sign brings with it a restless, discontented, and emotional state, and that there is more on their plate than they expected or wanted. If this is the case for you, remember that these feelings are there because you need to make a change, however big or small. Use it to stimulate activity and positive change.

October 15-16 Monthly money and income peak. You're looking at the world in terms of value and worth now, and what you have (or don't have) is on your mind. Money issues pop up now—the discovery of a way to increase your income, an unexpected gift or reward, or a brief and tiny financial crisis that motivates you to find new ways to make money are possible.

October 18-20 Mercury trine Mars and sextile Saturn; the Sun sextile Pluto. This is a strong period for deliberate action, productivity, and sound thinking. With Mercury retrograde, reviewing problems from the past is advised rather than initiating new projects. For you, this is a strong period for personal influence, reward, and recognition. Career, work, and reputation matters thrive, and solid progress can be made in work projects.

October 22-23 Romance and pleasure are highlights right now with the Moon in your solar fifth. The Moon is in your element, and so are you! The flowing, expressive, and spontaneous energy surrounding you attracts like-minded (and hearted) people. Be sure to take time to enjoy yourself, preferably around others! Keywords: romance, creativity, spontaneity, pleasure, self-expression.

October 23-25 Strong Uranian energy is with us now with Mercury, the Sun, and Venus in hard aspect to Uranus. We should "expect the unexpected"--little will go as planned. We are likely to rebel against rules, authority, and anything that fences us in. Thinking outside of the box works. For you, frustrating domestic matters could figure. As well, a partner or partnership might temporarily feel unstable. Even career matters are on the chaotic side. Avoid stressing yourself out by expecting changes to plans.

October 26 A Full Moon occurs today in early Taurus in your solar seventh house. The New Moon was all about you. Now it's time to strike a balance with an "other". The seventh house represents an important one-to-one relationship--a marriage partner, significant other, business partner, or an adversary. It's time to strike a balance between your own needs and those of another. It's time to compromise and negotiate. Partnership "tests" are possible now, but so is a chance to truly connect to a special someone in your life.

October 26-27 Your partnerships are highlighted right now, and it's time to compromise. Insecurities in your partnerships are brought to light now, and the best way to handle this is to understand that you need others instead of competing for the floor. Some people find this time of the lunar month an energy sapper, as they feel ignored or unnoticed. Trying to go it alone won't work just now. The spotlight is on other people for the time being, and it's best to let them shine. Concentrate on truly listening to those close to you, and on playing a supportive role. Perhaps not a time to be make a presentation or to come on strong to the world. You are feeling reflective rather than expressive.

October 29-30 Matters pertaining to personal finances and possessions thrive for you now. Circumstances conspire to put you in the lead. Productivity in your career is also featured.

September 2007: Scorpio Horoscope: Love, Career, & General Trends
 

September

 

Overview.

Until the 23rd, the Sun puts a spotlight on your sector of friends, groups, and dreams coming true. It's a sociable sector, and that's exactly how you are feeling--happy, lighthearted, and social. You're more detached than usual. Conferences or other gatherings that are related to future developments and/or shared ideals and interests succeed for you at this time. You may lead, facilitate, or organize an important group function. Personal relationships take on a fun, if impersonal, tone now. Activities with children increase. From the 13th, some down time is in order. Before that, enjoy your lively calendar!

From the 23rd, the Sun travels through your twelfth house, marking a time of retreat and regeneration. Think about the attachments you have--to things, people, and routines--and consider which ones are dragging you down. This is a time when competitive energies and the ego are on a bit of a break. It's not the time to push ahead with brand new projects. Rather, it's a time of reflection, dreaming, and recharging your batteries. Situations that have naturally outgrown their usefulness in your life can now be put behind you. Endings of natural cycles may be part of the picture at this time of year. Your energy is largely applied to personal and private affairs now. Your disposition is introspective. Rest and reflect, and prepare for a more outgoing cycle when the Sun moves into your first house.

This month, a partner’s attitude and affairs begin to move forward, serving to ease challenges and to bridge gaps between you and a special someone. Singles feel more confident. Your personal projects begin to move forward and a sense of relief contributes to a hopeful mood. You are picking up much important information intuitively this month, so keep an “idea“ journal. Career pressures are easing, as you are entering a new long-term trend in which you are less concerned about public image and more interested in long-term happiness goals.

Venus turns direct on the 8th, and Venus-ruled areas of life begin to move forward. Love, appreciation, and the need for companionship are expressed more naturally and readily from this point forward. Problems with close partners begin to resolve.

A Solar Eclipse in Virgo occurs on September 11th. The effects of eclipses stay with us for as long as six months, and they reveal main areas of focus for this half-year period. A general rule of thumb regarding eclipses is to avoid major decision-making in the week before an eclipse. This is because new information that could change our perspective often is revealed in the week after the eclipse. Therefore, major decision-making is best avoided from September 4th to 11th. This Solar Eclipse marks a new beginning for you. Flaws in a system of doing things are revealed and it's time to start fresh. This eclipse occurs in your solar eleventh, suggesting that a new approach to friendships or new friendships altogether, a new path towards happiness and fulfillment, new associations or affiliations, or plenty of social activity are in store for you.

Your rulers, Mars and Pluto, form stimulating connections to Venus, Neptune, and Mercury this month on the 4, 7-9, 23-24, and 26-27, representing opportunity periods for you. The 4th is strong for negotiations and partnering, as well as dealing with private matters or issues from the past. On the 7-9, your intuition is heightened. Romance and creativity also thrive. On the 23-24 and 26-27, you may be asked for advice, communications flow smoothly, you are able to rationalize and solve problems, and financial matters are strong. Red flag periods--times when you are not received as well as you would like, or are prone to impulsive, hasty, or ill-timed behavior--are more prevalent this month and occur on the 2-3, 17-19 (especially), and 20-22, when you may feel neglected, slighted, or unappreciated. Power struggles, challenges with work and reputation matters, as well as a feeling of being slighted are themes on the 17-19 and 20-22.

Opportunity periods for personal finances occur on the 6-8 and 12-13. Speculation and new financial initiatives are best avoided on the 3-4 and 25-26, when financial decision-making is unclear.

As far as romantic and creative matters are concerned, opportunities to enhance or attract romance occur on the 7-10 (especially) and 18-19. These are power days for personal magnetism, charisma, and creativity. Issues that could be annoying or disconcerting concerning romantic matters are more likely to occur on the 3-4, 12-13, 20-22, and 27-28. These would be less than ideal days on which to have a first date, for example. With regard to your serious partnerships, long-term relationships tend to thrive on the 1-4 and 17-18. Use these days for strengthening your connection or attracting a serious partnership. Tensions in close partnerships are more likely on the 6, 10, and 19-22.

Better times to schedule job interviews or health appointments, and for success and happiness on the job, occur on the 4, 7-10, and 25-27. Red flag periods for these matters occur on the 2-3, 15-18, and 19-21, when you should probably avoid scheduling health appointments or job interviews if feasible. Matters related to your career and reputation tend to thrive on the 1-2. Challenges with these matters are more likely to occur on the 3-4, 9-10, 12-13, 16-19, and 27-28, when others may not see you in the best light!

Venus continues to transit your solar tenth house all month. Venus is charming, friendly, and affectionate, and her presence in your career and reputation sector brings social opportunities and charm to your career. You are coming across well at work now, and romantic opportunities, or simply more chances to socialize and network, are likely.

Mercury transits your privacy sector from the 5-27. Your mind is focused on private matters and past issues during this cycle. This is a time when you are least likely to speak out of turn or to express yourself freely. You're searching behind the curtain, and examining the past for answers. This is a good time for research, quiet contemplation, and meditation; but do avoid being dragged down by issues that have outgrown their worth and purpose. Examining the past in order to improve the future is certainly worthwhile, as long as you don't waste your energy on guilt. Creative endeavors could prosper now, particularly those that draw upon the emotions or that require creative visualization skills, such as poetry, art, acting, and other such activities. You are likely to require a certain amount of solitude in order to get your thoughts together or to be mentally productive. You are less likely to chat indiscriminately during this transit, and tend to be a little secretive or tight-lipped for the time being. This may be important, in fact, because this position is sometimes associated with the uncovering of secrets, so discretion may be in order.

Mars continues to transit your solar eighth house until the 28th. During this cycle, your energy is channeled through deep but easily aroused emotions and/or a strong sex-drive. This can also express itself through an active interest in big business, finance, and investing. You tend to act on instinct now. You experience every situation intensely and deeply during this cycle, even though your outward actions do not necessarily reveal this fact. You could find yourself attracted to mysterious or even dangerous situations. Sometimes this transit correlates with disputes over money. This is a time when your best course of action is to recognize that you need, or rely on, others for support. Circumstances in life are likely to occur that require you to take the lead or to apply personal action in connection with joint finances.

Highlights:

September 1-2 Your partnerships are highlighted right now, and it's time to compromise. Insecurities in your partnerships are brought to light now, and the best way to handle this is to understand that you need others instead of competing for the floor. Some people find this time of the lunar month an energy sapper, as they feel ignored or unnoticed. Trying to go it alone won't work just now. The spotlight is on other people for the time being, and it's best to let them shine. Concentrate on truly listening to those close to you, and on playing a supportive role. Perhaps not a time to be make a presentation or to come on strong to the world. You are feeling reflective rather than expressive.

September 7-8 Venus and Pluto turn direct after retrograde periods. These influences represent matters moving forward after a period of introspection and/or lag. For you, this is especially significant because Pluto is your ruler and Venus rules your partnerships. Your personal initiatives and close personal relationships turn around after a period of review or lag. Others begin to understand you more, and the emotional distance that you have been feeling in the past weeks begins to lift.

September 7-8 Monthly career and reputation peak. Your credibility is important at this time of the lunar month, and efforts at self-promotion might be made now. This is the time when you're noticed for what you've done or haven't done. Do your best to be in top form, make career adjustments if needed, and don't be afraid to show others exactly what you're made of. You're at your best when you are showing the world your practical, competent, and responsible side.

September 11 New Moon Solar Eclipse in Virgo in your solar eleventh house affects you now and for months to come. Unexpected events necessitate the need for new beginnings. The eleventh house is a sector associated with networking, making contact, group activities, and income earned from business. With the New Moon here, focus is on making contacts and reaching out to others in both a social and professional sense. It's a time to turn inner restlessness into fruitful contact with others. Heightened awareness of your position in life within the context of the group, rather than through self-centered focus, is probable with this position of the New Moon, as well as a need for social security. Goals that involve networking, making connections with others, joining or strengthening ties in a group project/activity, and nurturing good will are the focus this month.

September 15-16 Your Personal New Moon. A new personal cycle begins for you, and you feel fresh and re-energized. It's all about you now, so it's time to put your best foot forward. A blast of personal energy comes your way, and showing your leadership skills works for you now. You are at your most convincing, as others are accepting you at face value. Some people find that the Moon in their sign brings with it a restless, discontented, and emotional state, and that there is more on their plate than they expected or wanted. If this is the case for you, remember that these feelings are there because you need to make a change, however big or small. Use it to stimulate activity and positive change.

September 17-18 Monthly money and income peak. You're looking at the world in terms of value and worth now, and what you have (or don't have) is on your mind. Money issues pop up now—the discovery of a way to increase your income, an unexpected gift or reward, or a brief and tiny financial crisis that motivates you to find new ways to make money are possible.

September 19-21 Mars opposes Pluto, Venus opposes Neptune, and the Sun is challenged by both Pluto and Chiron. Battles begun now are lose-lose situations. Avoid beating a dead horse and attempting to force matters that should naturally take time to unfold. Circumstances now can push us to discover our own power--power that comes from a strong sense of self rather than superficial energy derived from manipulating people into doing what we want them to do. We are not seeing our finances or love relationships clearly just now. For you, impatience is possible, but so is high energy and drive. While there can be tensions regarding your career and reputation, you are also especially pioneering and unwilling to take the blame for others. Staying active helps. A partner could be distant or confusing right now. Wait it out.

September 24-25 Romance and pleasure are highlights right now with the Moon in your solar fifth. The Moon is in your element, and so are you! The flowing, expressive, and spontaneous energy surrounding you attracts like-minded (and hearted) people. Be sure to take time to enjoy yourself, preferably around others! Keywords: romance, creativity, spontaneity, pleasure, self-expression.

September 24-26 Mercury sextile Pluto and trine Mars. This is a powerful period for presenting your ideas or stating your case. It's also strong for finances, health, and work projects.

September 26 A Full Moon occurs today in early Aries in your solar sixth house. Avoid blaming others for your own state of discontent. You can use this surge of emotional energy to make positive changes to your routines. Do something to improve your work conditions if they are annoying you--even if it's a small act of kindness with a co-worker or bringing in something to brighten up your desk or office. Get going on your exercise or nutrition program that you've been toying with in your mind. This may also be a time when a work project comes to fruition or completion.

September 28-29 Your partnerships are highlighted right now, and it's time to compromise. Insecurities in your partnerships are brought to light now, and the best way to handle this is to understand that you need others instead of competing for the floor. Some people find this time of the lunar month an energy sapper, as they feel ignored or unnoticed. Trying to go it alone won't work just now. The spotlight is on other people for the time being, and it's best to let them shine. Concentrate on truly listening to those close to you, and on playing a supportive role. Perhaps not a time to be make a presentation or to come on strong to the world. You are feeling reflective rather than expressive.

Scorpio (Born October 24 to November 2) and Scorpio Ascendant 0 to 10 degrees Scorpio:

August 2007: Scorpio Horoscope: Love, Career, & General Trends
 

August

 

Overview.

Until the 23rd, the Sun spotlights your career and public sector. Focus is on what you do, how you do it, and what you accomplish. Do whatever you can to adopt a serious approach to business because you are in the spotlight. A time when practical vision may be at a high, during which you can see what needs to be done and just how to go about doing it. Career and vocational issues may benefit from the increased clarity you possess.  Much of your energy will be applied to vocational achievement, professional success, and leadership during this cycle. The desire for some form of recognition and financial success is stronger than any other time of the year.

The Sun illuminates your sector of friends, groups, and dreams coming true from the 23rd. It's a sociable sector of your chart, and that's exactly how you are feeling--happy, lighthearted, and social. Group affiliations capture your attention. Connections can be made now and networking pays off. Being part of a community or circle of friends and building your social network is important to you at this time. This is a rather happy, goal-oriented cycle. A lively agenda is promised, you're attracting quite a bit of interest, and your energy for making contact with others is high. A stronger sense of community is with you during this cycle. Relationships take on a fun, if impersonal, tone now. Activities with children increase. You are more stimulated by all that is unconventional during this cycle, and your ideas are original and progressive now. This is a time to follow your dreams and ideals, and to plant a seed in the form of a wish for the future.

Your yearly career peak occurs in August, dear Scorpio, and you can expect new or increased responsibilities. Success is more important to you than usual, and you take special pride in what you do as well as how you do it. Finances are strong, and financial deals and matters move forward after a slump. Tests to your partnerships are likely, and you could find a partner is distant or hard to reach. Give others breathing room. A creative project bears fruit, or a romance heats up, in the last few days of the month.

Venus continues to retrograde all month and until September 8th. For the time being, avoid making critical decisions about Venus-ruled areas of life, including love and social relationships, entertainment, beauty, and finances. Read more about Venus Retrograde here.

This month, Leo and Sagittarius houses are emphasized. The Sun, Mercury, and Venus all align with Saturn and trine Pluto at various points in the month. As well, Jupiter in Sagittarius turns direct on the 6th. This affects your tenth and second houses. Emphasis is on tangible and practical matters, including personal finances and career--the serious elements of these matters. It's time to make a plan to improve these areas of your life. It may feel like work, but accepting responsibility and the determination to "clean up" your life in these areas will bring rewards. Personal finances can be fortified this month as well. You might discover a stronger connection to your work, possessions, and self-worth, and more purposefulness in your life as a result.

A Lunar Eclipse occurs on August 28th in the early degrees of Pisces. The "crisis" that eclipses such as this one tend to elicit is a crisis of lack--a time when we suddenly realize a great need or want. This eclipse can trigger awareness of need in an area of our lives, such as our relationship to work, to our health and bodies, and so forth. This is a time when matters come to light--things that have been brewing under the surface. With the Virgo-Pisces service axis involved, this Lunar Eclipse presses us to look more closely at our needs, lacks, and wants in our lives. We are pushed to find a balance between day-to-day functions and routines, physical health, and the need for order (Virgo) and vision, spiritual health, disorder, and the infinite (Pisces). Virgo rules the tools and techniques that we use to deal with day-to-day life, while Pisces rules the tools that we use to deal with our spiritual selves. Epiphanies are likely at this time as we become acutely aware of our lack. This understanding can propel us into positive action. Full Moons and Lunar Eclipses bring issues in our lives to fulfillment. Our emotions are heightened, and there is often some sort of drama involved with the house, sign, and any contacted planets activated by the Full Moon. Occurring in your solar fifth house, a romantic affair may be tested. If love is true, there's nothing to fear. The demands of your larger goals in life may have been eclipsing your pleasure-seeking activities. Also possible, your children may be going through their own changes and "stages", and need more attention now.

Your rulers, Pluto and Mars, form stimulating connections to Saturn, Venus, Mercury, the Sun, and Chiron this month, on the 5-6, 14-17, 19-20, and 26-27, representing opportunity periods for you. On the 5-6, serious matters figure. It is necessary now to assume more responsibility in certain areas of your life. Others may turn to you for strength. You are coming across as particularly respectable now. Communications figure strongly, and a "clean up" is required. On the 14-17, social matters fare especially well. Love may come your way, but likely someone from your past will figure. This is a good time to strengthen an existing partnership, and for shared finances. On the 19-20, career matters are strong and your personal influence increases. On the 26-27, recognition for your more unique qualities comes naturally without even trying. Humble confidence shines now. Red flag periods--times when you are not received as well as you would like, or are prone to impulsive, hasty, or ill-timed behavior--occur on the 1-4, 7, and 25, when you may feel neglected, slighted, or unappreciated.

Opportunity periods for personal finances occur on the 2 and 9. Speculation and new financial initiatives are best avoided on the 1 and 22-24, when financial decision-making is unclear. Money matters move forward this month -- matters that were previously "stuck" are now released.

As far as romantic and creative matters are concerned, opportunities to enhance or attract romance occur on the 2 and 9. These are power days for personal magnetism, charisma, and creativity. Issues that could be annoying or disconcerting concerning romantic matters are more likely to occur on the 13-14, 23-25, and 30. These would be less than ideal days to go on a first date, for example. With regard to your serious partnerships, long-term relationships tend to thrive on the 12-18 and 28. Use these days for strengthening your connection or attracting a serious partnership. Tensions in close partnerships are more likely on the 7-8 and 24-27. With your partnership ruler retrograde all month, you may be dealing with a distant partner who is re-evaluating your partnership. Give him or her space and don't push.

Better times to schedule job interviews or health appointments, and for success and happiness on the job, occur on the 3 and 26-27. Red flag periods for these matters occur on the 1-2, 7-8, 22-24, and 25, when you should probably avoid scheduling health appointments or job interviews if feasible. Matters related to your career and reputation tend to thrive on the 1-2 and 15-22. Challenges with these matters are more likely to occur on the 3-5, 10-11, and 13-14, when others may not see you in the best light!

Venus continues to move through your solar eleventh house but then dips back into your solar tenth house this month. Issues surrounding friendships and group connections, as well as career, reputation, and accountability matters, are intensified, but due to Venus's retrograde motion, past issues are revisited and old problems come to light. This is a period of review and re-assessment of social matters and career and standing issues for you.

Mercury continues to transit your solar ninth house until the 4th. Cross-cultural exchanges, a visit or significant communication from someone far away, or a long journey broaden your thinking. Your thoughts are lifted above the usual daily concerns and immediate business into thoughts and visions about future, larger goals, and the purpose and meaning of your activities. You are putting everything into a larger context. Discussions or reading on issues of faith and of the spirit are likely to be a part of this.

Mercury transits your solar tenth house from the 4-19. You are likely thinking a lot about your career and business matters, or your career requires more communication than usual during this cycle. You speak with authority during this period, and you are more accountable than usual for what (and how) you communicate. Your ideas may come into public view now. Use the power of words to influence authority figures. This is an excellent period for developing career and professional plans or strategies. You may be turned to for advice or for your opinion on important matters. Although approachable and ready to communicate, you are less inclined towards chatting about frivolous matters now. You tend to think about your position or standing on a professional level more frequently during this cycle. You are likely doing some multi-tasking regarding career and business matters. Negative use of this influence would be to worry unnecessarily about your reputation and responsibilities.

Mercury transits your solar eleventh house from the 19th. Your mind is bright, alert, and active during this cycle, and you have the ability to come up with unusual and inventive ideas. Sharing your thoughts with others is a prime interest. Others tend to particularly enjoy your conversations during this transit--you are willing to listen as well as add your own thoughts. As well, your ability to grasp unusual subject matter and to intuitively understand what others are trying to say win you some brownie points! You could also do a lot of thinking and musing about your own happiness and long-term goals.

Mars continues to transit your solar seventh house until the 7th, although the drama of this position is definitely easing, as Mars is now past an opposition to your Sun. With Mars in the seventh house, you are likely to exert your energy and initiative in active co-operation with others as associates or in partnerships of some kind. You can be aggressive and forceful in intimate relationships, or your partner may be displaying these traits. It is important to be restrained in all dealings with associates, business partners, and intimate partners. If you are too aggressive or dominant now, there is danger of trouble and loss through public opposition, unpopularity, damaged relationships, or even litigation in rare cases. This cycle tests your ability to resolve interpersonal conflicts. Remember that anger is often a mask for hurt feelings. There's bound to be a lot of friction or push and pull as you strive to balance your style and agenda with another's. 

Mars energizes your solar eighth house from the 7th. Sexuality and intimacy are stimulated under this transit. Negative expression of this energy is the tendency towards ego conflicts concerning jointly held property or money. Conflicts with partners over values or possessions are possible. Occasionally, this transit could bring a crisis or ending of some kind. Something you hear about now might disturb or touch you deeply. You are likely to be more strategic in your actions during this period, as you become aware of the subtleties of human interaction. This is a time when your best course of action is to recognize that you need, or need to rely on, others for support.

Highlights:

August 1-2 Romance and pleasure are highlights right now with the Moon in your solar fifth. The Moon is in your element, and so are you! The flowing, expressive, and spontaneous energy surrounding you attracts like-minded (and hearted) people. Be sure to take time to enjoy yourself, preferably around others! Keywords: romance, creativity, spontaneity, pleasure, self-expression.

August 2-3 Operative energies include the Sun trine Jupiter and Mercury sextile Mars. The tendency to take the high road in our relations with others dominates now. We more easily assert ourselves and our needs without causing a stir. For you, a blast of positive energy arrives in your career or concerning your social standing and reputation. Money matters may thrive now. Work is busy but productive and satisfying.

August 5-6 Your partnerships are highlighted right now, and it's time to compromise. Insecurities in your partnerships are brought to light now, and the best way to handle this is to understand that you need others instead of competing for the floor. Some people find this time of the lunar month an energy sapper, as they feel ignored or unnoticed. Trying to go it alone won't work just now. The spotlight is on other people for the time being, and it's best to let them shine. Concentrate on truly listening to those close to you, and on playing a supportive role. Perhaps not a time to be make a presentation or to come on strong to the world. You are feeling reflective rather than expressive.

August 11-12 Monthly career and reputation peak. Your credibility is important at this time of the lunar month, and efforts at self-promotion might be made now. This is the time when you're noticed for what you've done or haven't done. Do your best to be in top form, make career adjustments if needed, and don't be afraid to show others exactly what you're made of. You're at your best when you are showing the world your practical, competent, and responsible side.

August 12 New Moon in Leo in your solar tenth house affects you until the next New Moon in September. Heightened sensitivity to your standing in society and your goals for constructive progress are highlighted this month. It's a good time to develop new business plans and goals, assuming the New Moon is not very afflicted, and a sense of renewal and reinvigoration with regards to your career goals is a potential. It is a time to focus on the elements of your personality that you are projecting to society and as a professional. Goals for self-mastery and self-discipline should be made at this time. This is a phase when you will be busy with career and/or public responsibilities.

August 12-15 Operative energies include Neptune opposing a Sun-Mercury conjunction; and Venus conjunct Saturn and trine Pluto. Relationship or financial tests are likely now, but act to improve matters considerably in the long run. Be wary of what others are saying, of what you read, and of what you perceive during this period. Avoid making premature decisions until Neptune's veil lifts. Your ruler trines Saturn, suggesting a good time for realistically handling mundane affairs in your life. Some feelings of disillusionment with your job or family could surface now, or you could be feeling increased responsibilities in these areas of your life.

August 17-19 Operative energies include the Sun conjunct Venus; and Mercury conjunct Saturn and trine Pluto. Conversations of a more serious or probing nature are likely now. We may feel compelled to get to the bottom of a matter. For you, this is a strong period for communications and self-expression. A financial matter may bear fruit.

August 18-19 Your Personal New Moon. A new personal cycle begins for you, and you feel fresh and re-energized. It's all about you now, so it's time to put your best foot forward. A blast of personal energy comes your way, and showing your leadership skills works for you now. You are at your most convincing, as others are accepting you at face value. Some people find that the Moon in their sign brings with it a restless, discontented, and emotional state, and that there is more on their plate than they expected or wanted. If this is the case for you, remember that these feelings are there because you need to make a change, however big or small. Use it to stimulate activity and positive change.

August 19-21 Operative energies include the Sun conjunct Saturn and trine Pluto. We may be recognized or rewarded in some way for the efforts we put forth. Improved concentration and focus, a more realistic outlook, and a practical awareness of the limits of time all help us to make steady progress. Dedication and commitment to our goals runs high. For you, this is an excellent period for goal-oriented career affairs.

August 21-22 Monthly money and income peak. You're looking at the world in terms of value and worth now, and what you have (or don't have) is on your mind. Money issues pop up now—the discovery of a way to increase your income, an unexpected gift or reward, or a brief and tiny financial crisis that motivates you to find new ways to make money are possible.

August 28 A Full Moon Lunar Eclipse occurs today in early Pisces. The effect of this eclipse can last 3-6 months. You want to have fun, and the demands of your larger goals in life may have been eclipsing your pleasure-seeking activities. It can be hard to find time for everything you want to do, but without creative self-expression (be it romantic or playful), you simply won't feel complete. It's time to do something self-expressive, fun, and creative. You may be required to complete a creative project at this time. You could feel an overwhelming need to pour your heart out to a lover, or a romantic affair reaches some sort of epiphany. There could be a whirlwind of activity surrounding your child or children.

August 28-29 Romance and pleasure are highlights right now with the Moon in your solar fifth. The Moon is in your element, and so are you! The flowing, expressive, and spontaneous energy surrounding you attracts like-minded (and hearted) people. Be sure to take time to enjoy yourself, preferably around others! Keywords: romance, creativity, spontaneity, pleasure, self-expression.

Scorpio (Born October 24 to November 2) and Scorpio Ascendant 0 to 10 degrees Scorpio:

July 2007: Scorpio Horoscope: Love, Career, & General Trends
 

July

Overview.

Until the 23rd, the Sun illuminates your solar ninth house. This transit that started in June finds you at your most adventurous and philosophical. Routine tends to bother you now, as you instinctively are drawn towards anything that brings you up and out of the mundane. You feel more fulfilled when you expand your horizons during this cycle. This can be a restless time, and it could also be a little self-indulgent. As long as you don't fall into the trap of blind optimism, it's a very pleasant time when you have the guts to do something different and enjoy yourself. You are also in the position to gain more of an overall perspective on your life and on your goals.

From the 23rd, the Sun illuminates your career and reputation sector. More than any other time of the year, your focus is drawn to your "place" or standing in the outer world, and your reputation. This is the time when you are more interested in, and focused on, accomplishing something important. Your competency is something that you are especially sensitive to during this cycle. You want to shine. Your vision is practical right now, and you want to see tangible results for your efforts. More contact with authority figures is likely during this period. Recognition is likely to come your way whether you ask for it or not, and the responsibility that comes right along with it! Do what you feel is right, keeping in mind that you are at your most visible during this period in the year.

You are something of a free spirit this month, even if more mundane matters require attention. The second half of July is ideal for getting away from it all. Travel and adventure reinforce a sense of personal fulfillment. Prophetic visions might even figure. Partnerships become especially lively in July, although you could be dealing with aggressive or frustrating behavior from a special someone, particularly around the 11-12th. The best time of the month for personal magnetism occurs on the 7-10, when others find it easy to see your perspective on matters.

Mercury's retrograde period that began mid-June ends on July 9th. From the 9th until the 24th, we have a chance to revisit issues that stumped us during Mercury's retrograde period, and delays encountered begin to resolve.

Venus retrogrades on July 27th and stays in this apparent backward motion until September 8th. As Venus slows down in the last week of July, avoid making critical decisions about Venus-ruled areas of life, including love and social relationships, entertainment, beauty, and finances.

Your rulers, Mars and Pluto, forms stimulating connections to Mercury, Venus, and Uranus this month, on the 1, 7-9, and 20, representing opportunity periods for you. On the 1st, a pleasant communication or conversation could have you walking on air. Intimacy and financial matters fare especially well. On the 7-9, you have charm and magnetism on your side. Now is the time to attract what or who you want! Your partnerships fare especially well, whether it's to enhance an existing one or to attract a new one. On the 20th, family matters are strong. You are likely to pleasantly surprise someone with fabulous rewards. Red flag periods--times when you are not received as well as you would like, or are prone to impulsive, hasty, or ill-timed behavior--occur on the 10-12, 19, 24, and 30-31 when you may feel neglected, slighted, or unappreciated.

Opportunity periods for personal finances occur on the 2 and 27. Speculation and new financial initiatives are best avoided on the 3, 10, and 17-18, when financial decision-making is unclear.

As far as romantic and creative matters are concerned, opportunities to enhance or attract romance occur on the 2 and 27. These are power days for personal magnetism, charisma, and creativity. Issues that could be annoying or disconcerting concerning romantic matters are more likely to occur on the 13-14, 17-19, 23-25, and 30. These would be less than ideal days to go on a first date, for example. With regard to your serious partnerships, long-term relationships tend to thrive on the 1-2 and 5-10. Use these days for strengthening your connection or attracting a serious partnership. Tensions in close partnerships are more likely on the 28.

Better times to schedule job interviews or health appointments, and for success and happiness on the job, occur on the 1, 5-7, and 19-21. Red flag periods for these matters occur on the 10-15, 23-24, and 30-31, when you should probably avoid scheduling health appointments or job interviews if feasible. Matters related to your career and reputation tend to thrive on the 10-11. Challenges with these matters are more likely to occur on the 3, 6, 14, 17-19, and 25-26, when others may not see you in the best light!

Venus continues to transit your solar tenth house until the 14th. Venus is charming, friendly, and affectionate, and her presence in your career and reputation sector brings social opportunities and charm to your career. You are coming across well at work now, and romantic opportunities, or simply more chances to socialize and network, are likely.

Venus transits your eleventh house from the 14th. Forming harmonious, warm social friendships, possibly related to group activities within a club, can figure now. You may meet someone through such group activities; consequently, your interests will be shared. Whether or not you do, the bottom line is that sharing interests with someone is what makes you happy during this cycle. Venus here enlivens your friendships and group associations with charm and grace. You are more peace-loving than usual and slightly detached on a personal level. If a romance were to begin during this time frame, it would be characterized by a strong feeling of camaraderie, but it could also be rather impersonal and perhaps lacking in depth and intimacy.

Mercury transits your solar ninth house all month. Not content to focus on mundane, practical affairs just now, your mind is on bigger visions, thoughts, and ideals. You are open to expanding your knowledge base during this cycle, and communications from or with someone far away may be part of the picture. You are putting everything into perspective now, rather than compartmentalizing. Instead of simply shooting the breeze, you are more inclined to discuss broader philosophies now. Your inclination during this cycle is to think about the "big picture" rather than the mundane circumstances and details of your life. Missing appointments and other forms of forgetfulness could be part of the picture now. However, these matters could be tricky while Mercury is retrograde until the 9th, after which some sort of resolve is likely to take place.

Mars continues to move through your partnership sector all month, although the drama of this position is definitely easing, as Mars is passes an opposition to your Sun from the 8th. With Mars in the seventh house, you are likely to exert your energy and initiative in active co-operation with others as associates or in partnerships of some kind. You can be aggressive and forceful in intimate relationships, or your partner may be displaying these traits. It is important to be restrained in all dealings with associates, business partners, and intimate partners. If you are too aggressive or dominant now, there is danger of trouble and loss through public opposition, unpopularity, damaged relationships, or even litigation in rare cases. This cycle tests your ability to resolve interpersonal conflicts. Remember that anger is often a mask for hurt feelings. There's bound to be a lot of friction or push and pull as you strive to balance your style and agenda with another's.

Highlights:

July 1-2 Operative energies include Venus conjunct Saturn and Mercury sextile Mars. Challenges in close relationships may come to light now, bringing up the need to make solid plans or re-commitments. Reformulating a budget may also become necessary now. It's a good period for a heart-to-heart, as we tend to speak clearly and directly. However, we should watch for overly practical perspectives on sensitive matters.

July 4-5 Romance and pleasure are highlights right now with the Moon in your solar fifth. The Moon is in your element, and so are you! The flowing, expressive, and spontaneous energy surrounding you attracts like-minded (and hearted) people. Be sure to take time to enjoy yourself, preferably around others! Keywords: romance, creativity, spontaneity, pleasure, self-expression.

July 7-10 Operative energies include Venus trine Pluto, the Sun trine Uranus, and Mars sesquiquadrate Pluto. Powerful romantic and creative energies are with us now. Relationships, creative projects, or financial initiatives become more rich, meaningful, and intriguing. Freedom of expression, spontaneity, and creative license are important to us now. Don't let suspiciousness or negative thinking spoil the opportunities that arise now. Personal charisma is strong, even if you are rubbing some people the wrong way. Power struggles are likely on the job, but a partnership strengthens. Working relations may be strained, yet you stand to gain in the long run.

July 8-10 Mercury stations and turns direct on July 9th. Holding off on important discussions, interviews, or contracts is probably wise right now, as thinking is foggy and misunderstandings are likely. As Mercury moves forward and regains speed over the next couple of weeks, we can more easily get projects off the ground.

July 9-10 Your partnerships are highlighted right now, and it's time to compromise. Insecurities in your partnerships are brought to light now, and the best way to handle this is to understand that you need others instead of competing for the floor. Some people find this time of the lunar month an energy sapper, as they feel ignored or unnoticed. Trying to go it alone won't work just now. The spotlight is on other people for the time being, and it's best to let them shine. Concentrate on truly listening to those close to you, and on playing a supportive role. Perhaps not a time to be make a presentation or to come on strong to the world. You are feeling reflective rather than expressive.

July 14 New Moon in Cancer in your solar ninth house affects you until the next New Moon in August. The ninth house rules our spirit to grow, explore, and expand beyond the "regular" experiences in our lives. The New Moon here may bring some restlessness and dissatisfaction with regular routines. Make an effort to initiate new projects or activities that expand your mind, feed your spirit for adventure, and stretch your imagination. You may feel renewed by a new perspective on your life, something philosophical or spiritual that you read or learn, or an adventure that takes you away from the mundane routines in your life.

July 15-16 Monthly career and reputation peak. Your credibility is important at this time of the lunar month, and efforts at self-promotion might be made now. This is the time when you're noticed for what you've done or haven't done. Do your best to be in top form, make career adjustments if needed, and don't be afraid to show others exactly what you're made of. You're at your best when you are showing the world your practical, competent, and responsible side.

July 22-23 Your Personal New Moon. A new personal cycle begins for you, and you feel fresh and re-energized. It's all about you now, so it's time to put your best foot forward. A blast of personal energy comes your way, and showing your leadership skills works for you now. You are at your most convincing, as others are accepting you at face value. Some people find that the Moon in their sign brings with it a restless, discontented, and emotional state, and that there is more on their plate than they expected or wanted. If this is the case for you, remember that these feelings are there because you need to make a change, however big or small. Use it to stimulate activity and positive change.

July 23-26 Operative energies include Mercury semi-square Saturn, Mars square Neptune, and the Sun sesquiquadrate Uranus. Some tension is in the air now. It can be difficult to get a point across or to move about effortlessly. Others may be rebellious, resistant to change, or simply hard to pin down. Confusing circumstances surrounding your work, routines, or health could figure now. A lover or child could be in an aggressive or unruly mood.

July 25-26 Monthly money and income peak. You're looking at the world in terms of value and worth now, and what you have (or don't have) is on your mind. Money issues pop up now—the discovery of a way to increase your income, an unexpected gift or reward, or a brief and tiny financial crisis that motivates you to find new ways to make money are possible.

July 26-28 Venus stations and turns retrograde on July 27th. Venus will stay retrograde until September 8th--a period in which we re-assess our love relationships and finances. During this station, be particularly cautious in your dealings with people dear to you, as well as with money. Postpone major beauty treatments as well. See Venus Retrograde for more information about this cycle.

July 28-29 Mercury trines Uranus. This is an opportune time to attend meetings and other organized group activities, to communicate online, and to take part in activities involving computers, scientific projects, and metaphysics. Insights seem to come from "out of the blue". Original, creative ideas are easy to come by now. For you, a creative project may move forward, and pleasurable activities figure. Fun with friends and pleasant surprises could be part of the picture now.

July 30 Full Moon in Aquarius in your solar fourth house. The last two weeks have found you working hard towards your career goals and other public matters. The demands of your personal life are now paramount. Striking a balance between energy spent on work and energy spent on domestic matters is essential now. Balanced attention to your public and personal lives is what you need to focus on. It's time to prioritize. Otherwise, you run the risk of over-extending yourself. A home, family, or property matter could grab your complete attention at this time.

Scorpio (Born October 24 to November 2) and Scorpio Ascendant 0 to 10 degrees Scorpio:

Scorpio Horoscope: Love, Career, & General Trends
 

June

Overview.

Until the 21st, the Sun puts a spotlight on your solar eighth house--a transit that began in May. Personal transformations, personal power, and intimate matters fulfill you most during this cycle. There may be a strong focus on other's money, such as the resources of a partner, through inheritance, banking and loans, or taxes. You are inclined to be more intense and perhaps even secretive at this time of year. Emotions tend to run deep right now, and you don't much like losing or feeling powerless. This can be a determined and personally powerful time of year if you apply the energy of this transit constructively.

From the 21st, the Sun illuminates your solar ninth house. Your focus turns outward, away from the more personal concerns that have occupied your thoughts in the last months. More than any other time during the year, you are feeling most adventurous and willing to take a leap of faith. This is a cycle in which you seek a higher meaning to your life, and/or seek out new experiences that take you beyond the here and now, and beyond the mundane details of day-to-day life. Anything that broadens your experiences attracts now. A lack of superficiality finds you straight to the point, interested in the truth of things. It would be wise for you to consider scheduling a vacation, adventure of sorts, or a course that expands your mind. These don't have to happen now, but taking the time to recognize your needs for escaping the daily grind, taking a few risks, and feeding your spirit for self-expression through some form of adventure or higher learning, will help you to feel good about yourself. The only caution with this cycle is that you could lose touch with everyday affairs and important details.

This month, you are bound to find the “way out” of recent problems juggling your career and domestic responsibilities. Support--emotional or practical--arrives when you need it most! Finances and intimate matters are your major focus in the first three weeks of June, after which you have your sights set on adventure and exploration. Relations on the job become especially easygoing and pleasant after the first week of June, when social invitations also figure. A fabulous opportunity appears on the 20-22. Gifts, rewards, and recognition come your way.

In the first half of the month, there is a strong emphasis on your second and eighth house axis, and issues surrounding finances and ownership are in the foreground. Much activity around these "departments" of your life is stimulated.

Mercury begins a retrograde cycle on June 15th and runs until July 9th. All Mercury retrograde cycles particularly affect you in terms of communications with friends or groups, as well as intimate communications and shared financial resources, because Mercury rules these areas of your life. It would be wise to be especially clear when it comes to financial transactions and personal communications with friends, or, better yet, take this time to re-budget or rethink your plans instead of taking premature action. Group meetings may be postponed or cancelled, and friends may seem distant or confused. Occurring in your solar ninth house this time, extra care should be used regarding travel or education plans. Delays are very possible. It would be wise to be especially clear when it comes to communicating with professors and lawyers as well; or take this time to re-examine issues rather than communicating about them prematurely.

This month, Saturn and Neptune are in opposition for the final time. This energy first occurred in August 2006 (see our horoscope archives in August for an explanation of the conflict). Some sort of resolve of the conflict is in sight now, although getting to that point could involve some form of disillusionment.

Your rulers, Pluto and Mars, form stimulating connections to Jupiter, Chiron, Saturn, the Sun, Neptune, and each other this month, on the 4-5, 11-13, and 20-22, representing opportunity periods for you. Good will and positive energy comes your way on the 4-5, when you are appreciated by others quite naturally and automatically. You are expressing a most benevolent energy now that attracts good things to you. The 11-13 opportunity period is strong for productivity, recognition, and authority. Career matters are particularly strong. The 20-22 is perhaps the best period for you in June. Energy flows smoothly, and you are able to take a stand or assert your wishes without stepping on anyone's toes. It's also good for work matters. Red flag periods--times when you are not received as well as you would like, or are prone to impulsive, hasty, or ill-timed behavior--occur on the 3, 18-19, and 28-29, when you may feel neglected, slighted, or unappreciated. On the 3 and 18-19, feeling underappreciated and misunderstood is likely. A partner may not appreciate the way you are coming across now. Watch for impulsiveness or stressful changes on the 28-29.

Opportunity periods for personal finances occur on the 3-4, 7-8, and 19-20. Speculation and new financial initiatives are best avoided on the 5-6 and 21-22.

As far as romantic and creative matters are concerned, opportunities to enhance or attract romance occur on the 12-14 especially and 19-20. These days represent power days for personal magnetism, charisma, and creativity. Issues that could be annoying or disconcerting concerning romantic matters are more likely to occur on the 28-30. These would be less than ideal days to go on a first date, for example. With regard to your serious partnerships, long-term relationships tend to thrive on the 20 and 30-1 (with some challenges). Use these periods for strengthening your connection or attracting a serious partnership. Tensions in close partnerships are more likely on the 3-4, 5, 8-9, 18-19 (especially), 21-22, 25-26, and 29-30.

Better times to schedule job interviews or health appointments, and for success and happiness on the job, occur on the 3-5, 7-15, and 20-22. Red flag periods for these matters occur on the 28-29, when you should probably avoid scheduling health appointments or job interviews if feasible. Matters related to your career and reputation tend to thrive on the 6 and 11-13 especially. Challenges with these matters are more likely to occur on the 5, 9-10, 18-19, and 28-29, when others may not see you in the best light!

Venus continues to journey through your solar ninth house until the 5th. During this period, you are more self-expressive and adventurous with regards to expressing your affections. A love interest who attracts you during this cycle may be somebody who you previously wouldn't consider attractive, or someone whose cultural background is very different than yours. Your perceptions of beauty, in general, are broadened and widened now, and this can extend to things that attract you, including objects and ideas. You have a taste for the exotic and the spirit to match.

Venus moves through your solar tenth house from the 5th. During this cycle, you are most charming and well-received on the job. Your responsibility and authority are likeable qualities now, making this a favorable period overall for schmoozing with those in a higher position than you, as well as for negotiations or social activities related to business. Venus is charming, friendly, and affectionate, and her presence in your career and reputation sector brings social opportunities to your career. You are coming across well at work now, and romantic opportunities, or simply more chances to socialize and network, are likely. You are socially ambitious right now, and success may come though your good managerial qualities or some form of artistic talent, or, indirectly through your marriage partner. People who turn your head during this cycle are those who come across as especially competent.

Mercury transits your solar ninth house all month. Not content to focus on mundane, practical affairs just now, your mind is on bigger visions, thoughts, and ideals. You are open to expanding your knowledge base during this cycle, and communications from or with someone far away may be part of the picture. You are putting everything into perspective now, rather than compartmentalizing. Instead of simply shooting the breeze, you are more inclined to discuss broader philosophies now. Your inclination during this cycle is to think about the "big picture" rather than the mundane circumstances and details of your life. Missing appointments and other forms of forgetfulness could be part of the picture now, especially while Mercury is retrograde from the 15th forward.

Mars continues to activate your solar sixth house until the 24th, and you have more energy at your disposal for work and fitness or other health routines. You are bound to take a head-on, direct approach to organizing your life and with regards to your working methods. Impatience with daily routines is also possible. You may be inclined to compete with others on a professional level, or at least to want to dominate or work solo. You are not in the mood to take orders just now! This period doesn't favor teamwork. Avoid the tendency to argue with co-workers by doing whatever you can to work independently. You work with energy, impatience, and speed during this cycle. It's a good time to focus on a fitness routine.

Mars energizes your solar seventh house from the 24th. Partnerships may suffer from ego conflicts, or adversaries may be challenging. Use this energy to work cooperatively on relationship problems. You may even find that you seem to need someone's help in order to do what you want to do during this cycle. Relationships are vivacious and dynamic during this period. When a difference arises, you are quick to settle it, and have little patience for sweeping matters under the rug. Your close personal relationships are lively during this cycle--full of conflicts and resolutions or reconciliations.

Highlights:

May 31-June 1 Monthly money and income peak. You're looking at the world in terms of value and worth now, and what you have (or don't have) is on your mind. Money issues pop up now—the discovery of a way to increase your income, an unexpected gift or reward, or a brief and tiny financial crisis that motivates you to find new ways to make money are possible.

June 3-6 Operative energies include the Sun trine Chiron and opposite Jupiter; Mars trine Jupiter and sextile Chiron; and Venus sesquiquadrate Jupiter. These influences produce a natural, enterprising spirit. Enthusiasm and confidence are with us now, and it's easy to tap into our more unique qualities and talents in order to go after what we want. However, we also have the tendency to over-reach. For you, it's time to shine on the job, although it's best not to overdo your authority now. Money matters are also strong, and you could enjoy an increase in pay from your work. A partner could be promising more than they can deliver, however.

June 7-8 Romance and pleasure are highlights right now with the Moon in your solar fifth. The Moon is in your element, and so are you! The flowing, expressive, and spontaneous energy surrounding you attracts like-minded (and hearted) people. Be sure to take time to enjoy yourself, preferably around others! Keywords: romance, creativity, spontaneity, pleasure, self-expression.

June 9 With the Sun and Venus in hard aspect to Uranus, watch for disruptions in personal relationships and general plans. Expect the unexpected! For you, these disruptions and surprises are likely to occur in the realms of partnerships and career. You could feel threatened by a partner's erratic behavior, for example.

June 10-12 Operative energies include the Sun sextile Mars and Saturn, and Mars trine Saturn. We are able to creatively solve problems and to instinctively take action when necessary now. It's easy to stick to a specific task and make headway. Work takes on definite shape, and we can see results from our efforts. This gives us a sense of responsibility and a feeling of directedness and purposefulness. This is a good time to temper our energy and to exercise better judgment, as well as to get and feel organized. Traditional methods work, and thoroughness brings rewards. Practical considerations are favored over impulsive decisions. For you, getting organized on the job can give you a real boost. This is a strong period for career matters--respect and authority. An energetic and productive conversation can also figure now.

June 11-12 Your partnerships are highlighted right now, and it's time to compromise. Insecurities in your partnerships are brought to light now, and the best way to handle this is to understand that you need others instead of competing for the floor. Some people find this time of the lunar month an energy sapper, as they feel ignored or unnoticed. Trying to go it alone won't work just now. The spotlight is on other people for the time being, and it's best to let them shine. Concentrate on truly listening to those close to you, and on playing a supportive role. Perhaps not a time to be make a presentation or to come on strong to the world. You are feeling reflective rather than expressive.

June 13 Operative energies include the Sun trine Neptune and Mars sextile Neptune. Interesting synchronicities can occur now. We may be at the right place at the right time, probably because our hunches are more likely to be correct and we are "tuned in". Instinctual judgment is enhanced under these influences. This period favors dancing, swimming, photography, the arts, and entertainment--mediums in which we act upon our more spiritual or artistic inclinations. It's a time when we are guided by intuition more than reason. Taking action towards the attainment of a dream can also figure now. For you, interesting twists to your life story could occur now, particularly surrounding partnerships and career. It's also strong for romantic matters.

June 14 New Moon in Gemini in your solar eighth house affects you until the next New Moon in July. This is a time of empowerment. It is a good time to focus on issues of intimacy as well as developing self-mastery skills. You may experience increased awareness of others—what makes them tick—as well as your own internal motivations during this period. It is a time when intimacy and deep levels of sharing are heightened. It is also a favorable time to start a financial plan, savings plan, take out a loan or consolidate, and do work in accounting.

June 14-16 Mercury is stationary retrograde now, and will remain retrograde until July 9th--a cycle when rethinking matters is the name of the game. When Mercury is stationary, as it is now, it's especially important to prepare for possible breakdowns in communication. Back up your computer, double-check your paperwork, and remember that you may not have all the necessary information to make big decisions for the time being. Avoid signing contracts or deals, as they may not work out as you expected, or they might need revision later.

June 18-19 Monthly career and reputation peak. Your credibility is important at this time of the lunar month, and efforts at self-promotion might be made now. This is the time when you're noticed for what you've done or haven't done. Do your best to be in top form, make career adjustments if needed, and don't be afraid to show others exactly what you're made of. You're at your best when you are showing the world your practical, competent, and responsible side.

June 25-26 Your Personal New Moon. A new personal cycle begins for you, and you feel fresh and re-energized. It's all about you now, so it's time to put your best foot forward. A blast of personal energy comes your way, and showing your leadership skills works for you now. You are at your most convincing, as others are accepting you at face value. Some people find that the Moon in their sign brings with it a restless, discontented, and emotional state, and that there is more on their plate than they expected or wanted. If this is the case for you, remember that these feelings are there because you need to make a change, however big or small. Use it to stimulate activity and positive change.

June 27-28 Monthly money and income peak. You're looking at the world in terms of value and worth now, and what you have (or don't have) is on your mind. Money issues pop up now—the discovery of a way to increase your income, an unexpected gift or reward, or a brief and tiny financial crisis that motivates you to find new ways to make money are possible.

June 29-30 Operative energies include Mars-Uranus, Sun-Saturn, Sun-Neptune, and Venus-Neptune hard aspects. The contrast between what is real and what is only a dream is explicit. It's best to avoid beginning a new project for the time being, as there is a lack of clarity now. For you, long-standing challenges regarding professional responsibilities and credibility as well as personal or domestic matters can reach a head now before final resolve. Disappointments and frustrations are likely. As well, dealing with disappointments regarding the services you render others and a partnership could be part of the picture now.

June 30 Full Moon in Capricorn in your solar third house. The last two weeks have found you somewhat restless and in need of more from life than the mundane. Now the mundane is catching up with you. Errands need to be run, people are talking your ear off, you need to do some paperwork and answer calls. An important document could arrive, or a sudden need to run an important errand or to take a short trip could be part of the picture. You are pushed to find a balance now. Do what needs to be done so that you can free yourself up for more adventurous and fulfilling activities.

Scorpio (Born October 24 to November 2) and Scorpio Ascendant 0 to 10 degrees Scorpio:

May 2007: Scorpio Horoscope: Love, Career, & General Trends
 

May

Overview. Until the 21st, the Sun continues to put a spotlight on your solar seventh house, your house of partnerships. Close relationships with others, negotiations, compromise, and one-on-one dealings all are in focus during this cycle. This is the time of year, however, when vitality may be at a low--when you are more likely to catch a cold or to need more sleep. Chances to improve or attract a close partnership abound, however. It's time to compromise, negotiate, and perhaps let a partner take the lead for a while.

From the 21st, the Sun energizes your sector of  transformation, change, sexuality, personal growth, regeneration, others' money and resources, addictions, and taxes. As a result, this is not the most gregarious of months for you. You take a step back, focus on intimacy with a partner, or simply retreat a little from the hectic pace of life. This is an excellent time to create a budget or financial plan, or to rid yourself of bad habits that undermine your sense of personal power and self-mastery. All that is deeply personal comes into focus now. Intimate matters are especially important to you during this cycle. Just how well you are handling your life comes up for inspection. Your self-mastery skills and psychological predisposition matter to you more than usual. This is the time of year when you are most desirous of change on a deep level. Clearing out psychic "junk" or ridding yourself of bad habits may be part of the picture now. You are more willing than usual to explore life's secrets. This cycle brings greater in-depth understanding and an inclination to delve beneath the surface of matters to get to the bottom of them. Research uncovers new material that allows you to develop a better overall picture of the year's events. This is an especially introspective cycle during which you have the chance to truly uncover your personal strengths and talents. On a more practical level, you may be dealing with joint finances and shared resources now more than usual.

May is a month of compromise for you, Scorpio. The challenge is to balance the needs of a significant other with your own. Your emotions are on your sleeve around the Full Moon on the 2nd--a rare thing! A new beginning in a relationship is in the works beginning on the 16th, and someone completely opposite to your usual “type“ may catch your eye. Expanding your personal resources is especially important to you now, and so is taking a few risks and enjoying your bounty! It can be challenging to accommodate both needs at once, however.

This month, Jupiter squares Uranus and trines Saturn. These long-term energies have been with us since January and March, respectively. For you, some material benefits can come from your career. Alternatively, you may have more resources to invest into your career or business. You may find that you are more able to earn a living from what you love doing this year. This trend continues for the next few months. However, you may experience some conflicts between your desire for security and a stable income and your needs for entertainment and pleasure, or possibly your romantic life. Expanding your personal resources is important to you now, and so is taking a few risks and enjoying your bounty! It can be challenging to accommodate both needs at once. As well, excitement in your romantic and social life may distract you from increasing your earning power. Try not to instigate change just for the sake of change, and avoid rash behavior. On the other hand, if you look for opportunities, you have more confidence and faith now to do something totally different, and inspiration may be found now. But do avoid blowing off responsibilities while you pursue your new vision.

Your rulers, Pluto and Mars, form stimulating connections to Mercury on the 8-9, representing opportunity periods for you. Intelligence is at a peak on the 20-21, when you can present your ideas to an especially receptive audience. You could get word about something now, or be called upon for advice. Red flag periods--times when you are not received as well as you would like, or are prone to impulsive, hasty, or ill-timed behavior--occur on the 3-4, 6-7, 10, 12-14 (especially), 19-20, and 27, when you may feel neglected, slighted, or unappreciated. Watch for a conflict of interests on the 12-14.

Opportunity periods for personal finances occur on the 4-7 and 30-31. Speculation and new financial initiatives are best avoided on the 1, 8-10, 19-20, and 23. The 1st may find you extravagant and the 10th, impulsive, with your finances.

As far as romantic and creative matters go, opportunities to enhance or attract romance occur on the 1, 5-6, 22-23, and 30-31 in particular. These days represent power days for personal magnetism, charisma, and creativity. Issues that could be annoying or disconcerting concerning romantic matters are more likely to occur on the 7, 12-14, 24-25, and 28. These would be less than ideal days to go on a first date, for example. With regard to your serious partnerships, long-term relationships tend to thrive on the 1, 20-21, and 24-25. Use these periods for strengthening your connection or attracting a serious partnership. Tensions in close partnerships are more likely on the 6-11, 14, 22-23, and 28-29, with the 6-7 the most challenging of the bunch. A face-off is likely now.

Better times to schedule job interviews or health appointments, and for success and happiness on the job, occur on the 8-9. Red flag periods for these matters occur on the 1, 12-13, 15-16, 19-20, and 23-24, when you should probably avoid scheduling health appointments or job interviews if feasible. Of these dates, the 12-13 is likely the most challenging for work and health affairs.

Venus continues to grace your eighth house until the 8th. Intimate connections can be especially rich and meaningful during this cycle. Your magnetism revolves around mysterious fascination rather than outgoing charm. Intensity appeals in your relationships. This can also be a time in which you discover untapped resources or talents. It’s a good time to work out money problems or other issues of sharing with a partner. You may get the backing you need now--financial or emotional.

Venus brings warmth and charm to your solar ninth house from the 8th. A taste for the exotic takes hold during this cycle. Routine affairs simply don't seem to satisfy. You receive pleasure from anything that expands your horizons, both physically and mentally. Foreign people and places may particularly appeal now. You tend to be expansive and generous when it comes to love. A love interest who attracts you during this cycle may be somebody who you previously wouldn't consider attractive, or someone whose cultural background is very different than yours. You have a taste for the exotic and the spirit to match. Public relations work, promotion, and other such endeavors are favored now. It is more about how you express yourself than the specifics of what you are saying that helps sway others to your position. There could be especial rapport with foreigners and with women if you are traveling during this period. You are all the more attractive and charming with this position, which increases your popularity. If a romance were to begin now, it is more likely to be with someone of a different background or educational level, or someone you meet through travel. You have a taste for the exotic now that can show up in many areas of your life--who you are attracted to, what you buy, the kind of art or entertainment you enjoy, and so forth.

Mercury transits your solar seventh house until the 11th. During this time, the desire to bounce ideas off a partner or close friend is very strong. Communication becomes especially important to you. You feel attracted to intelligent people with whom you can communicate well and exchange ideas during this cycle. You know how to relate to others and you do it in a natural and warm manner. You will seek chatty and restless friends who stimulate your curiosity and mental abilities. You may attract a younger person into your life.

Mercury transits your solar eighth house from the 11-28. You are more intuitive now than usual, picking up all of the hidden cues from people around you and reading between the lines. This is an excellent cycle in which to do some financial planning and strategizing. Research is also highly favored. It's also easier for you to approach sensitive, intimate, and personal matters with rationality and logic. As such, this is a great time to open up conversations about topics that normally might cause waves, such as those revolving around the sharing of power, intimacy, and finances.

Mercury occupies your solar ninth house from the 28th and into June. Not content to focus on mundane, practical affairs just now, your mind is on bigger visions, thoughts, and ideals.

Mars continues to activate and energize your romance and pleasure sector until the 15th. During this cycle, you are likely to exert your energy and initiative in actively pursuing a rewarding love life, social amusement, and pleasure in general. You have a likeable, competitive, and almost flamboyant temperament during this transit. There is a stronger desire for creative endeavors, athletics, risk-taking pursuits, and perhaps some gambling if inclined.

Mars energizes your solar sixth house from the 15th. You have more energy for work and your daily routines tend to speed up during this transit. Perhaps you have a larger workload than usual. It's a great time to take charge of your health. You have much energy at your disposal to pick up (or step up) a health and physical activity program. It might be hard for you to work with others in a harmonious manner during this transit, and disputes with co-workers are possible. If you are feeling especially angry, frustrated, or restless, it would be wise to find little projects and things to do so that you can channel excess energy constructively. If health is affected, fevers or infections are more likely.
 

Highlights:

May 1-2 Your Personal New Moon. A new personal cycle begins for you, and you feel fresh and re-energized. It's all about you now, so it's time to put your best foot forward. A blast of personal energy comes your way, and showing your leadership skills works for you now. You are at your most convincing, as others are accepting you at face value. Some people find that the Moon in their sign brings with it a restless, discontented, and emotional state, and that there is more on their plate than they expected or wanted. If this is the case for you, remember that these feelings are there because you need to make a change, however big or small. Use it to stimulate activity and positive change.

May 2 Full Moon in Scorpio in your solar first house. "Hey, what about me?" is the feeling of a Full Moon in the first house. You're looking for a bit of attention right now as you feel that life has been too "other-oriented" recently. Try to avoid infantile outbursts. Instead, work on your self-assertiveness. You do count, and there are ways to assert your own needs without stepping on others' toes. Finding a balance between autonomy and dependence is what this Full Moon is about for you. Your emotions are on your sleeve right now. It is a good time to put your needs first, but doing so with respect for others will take you further. Whether you can succeed as a leader is "tested" right now.

May 3-5 Operative energies include the Sun conjunct Mercury and in hard aspect with Pluto; and Mercury square Saturn. Our wants are aligned with our thoughts, and problem-solving comes naturally. What we say or write now has impact, for better or for worse! However, we are not very good at truly listening to what others have to say, and when we do, we tend to read between the lines with a negative slant. Our minds are investigative. Some of us could feel troubled or stressed with these influences. For you, power plays may occur with partners or superiors. You could experience some tension due to a feeling of being misunderstood or unacknowledged.

May 4-5 Monthly money and income peak. You're looking at the world in terms of value and worth now, and what you have (or don't have) is on your mind. Money issues pop up now—the discovery of a way to increase your income, an unexpected gift or reward, or a brief and tiny financial crisis that motivates you to find new ways to make money are possible.

May 7-9 Operative energies include Venus opposition Pluto; Sun square Saturn and sextile Uranus; Mercury square Neptune and sextile Mars. Intense social interactions are likely during this period. Frustrations involving blocked will and evasiveness can drive us to come up with creative solutions to problems now. For you, you could be feeling unappreciated. A conflict, or even a face-off, with a close partner could be part of the picture, likely over money and issues of sharing. Career matters are challenging now, but lead to the discovery of new systems or solutions.

May 11-12 Romance and pleasure are highlights right now with the Moon in your solar fifth. The Moon is in your element, and so are you! The flowing, expressive, and spontaneous energy surrounding you attracts like-minded (and hearted) people. Be sure to take time to enjoy yourself, preferably around others! Keywords: romance, creativity, spontaneity, pleasure, self-expression.

May 12-14 Operative energies include Mars square Pluto, Sun square Neptune, and Venus sesquiquadrate Neptune. Our desires are intense and difficult to satisfy right now. Some disillusionments are likely, as we tend to see what we want to see rather than what is. For you, impulsiveness can be a problem. You might encounter aggressive people or situations now. Disappointments or disillusionments could occur now, particularly regarding close partnerships, negotiations, and career matters.

May 15-16 Your partnerships are highlighted right now, and it's time to compromise. Insecurities in your partnerships are brought to light now, and the best way to handle this is to understand that you need others instead of competing for the floor. Some people find this time of the lunar month an energy sapper, as they feel ignored or unnoticed. Trying to go it alone won't work just now. The spotlight is on other people for the time being, and it's best to let them shine. Concentrate on truly listening to those close to you, and on playing a supportive role. Perhaps not a time to be make a presentation or to come on strong to the world. You are feeling reflective rather than expressive.

May 16 New Moon in late Taurus in your solar seventh house affects you until the next New Moon in June. Negotiations and diplomacy are highlighted during this period, as it is a favorable time to begin new relationships or to re-define existing ones. Issues of sharing and partnership come to the fore. Increased awareness of the need for someone significant to lean on or to rely on is often associated with this position. Working on, or resolving to work on, relationships that are mutually supportive is a good idea at this time. If you find yourself sensitive to the feeling of lacking support from partners, this may be a good time to ask yourself how companionable you are, and work on developing yourself in this area of life. You might just find that this is a period when you are at your most gracious. It is also a good time to make contacts and to make something public.

May 19-20 Operative energies include Mars sesquiquadrate Saturn, Sun inconjunct Pluto, and Mercury opposite Jupiter and square Uranus. There is a feeling of being blocked when we are attempting to go after what we want. Adjustments are necessary now in order for our lives to move forward. The need to make changes in our life that will further our psychological development arise now. Decision-making, however, may be based on unrealistic or overly optimistic premises. For you, challenges with your work or daily routine can figure now. Feelings of going unnoticed or unacknowledged point to a need to make adjustments. Intimacy, sharing, and money matters could also challenge you now.

May 21-22 Monthly career and reputation peak. Your credibility is important at this time of the lunar month, and efforts at self-promotion might be made now. This is the time when you're noticed for what you've done or haven't done. Do your best to be in top form, make career adjustments if needed, and don't be afraid to show others exactly what you're made of. You're at your best when you are showing the world your practical, competent, and responsible side.

May 25 Venus trines Uranus. We lose our fear of taking risks at this time, and we happily embrace all that is new, unusual, and out-of-the-ordinary with regards to romantic involvements as well as financial undertakings. We have an offbeat, pleasant attitude and people are more willing to socialize. For you, this is a strong period for partnership matters. You are able to approach matters creatively and acceptingly, making this an ideal time to smooth over differences. You could be in store for a pleasant surprise from a partner. A secret may be uncovered, leaving you feeling released and confident.

May 28-29 Your Personal New Moon. A new personal cycle begins for you, and you feel fresh and re-energized. It's all about you now, so it's time to put your best foot forward. A blast of personal energy comes your way, and showing your leadership skills works for you now. You are at your most convincing, as others are accepting you at face value. Some people find that the Moon in their sign brings with it a restless, discontented, and emotional state, and that there is more on their plate than they expected or wanted. If this is the case for you, remember that these feelings are there because you need to make a change, however big or small. Use it to stimulate activity and positive change.

May 31 Full Moon in Sagittarius in your solar second house. Intimacy, issues of power and control, or joint finances may have been a focus for the last two weeks. Now it's time to recognize what makes you comfortable. This Full Moon is about balancing the give and take of intimacy--the giving and receiving of pleasure. Sharing issues come into focus, as do issues of power--what's yours and what's mine. Your comfort zones matter, and now is the time to take care of your own needs without eclipsing the needs of others.

May 31-June 1 Monthly money and income peak. You're looking at the world in terms of value and worth now, and what you have (or don't have) is on your mind. Money issues pop up now—the discovery of a way to increase your income, an unexpected gift or reward, or a brief and tiny financial crisis that motivates you to find new ways to make money are possible.

Scorpio (Born October 24 to November 2) and Scorpio Ascendant 0 to 10 degrees Scorpio:

April 2007: Scorpio Horoscope: Love, Career, & General Trends
 

April

Overview. Until the 20th, the Sun continues to spotlight your work and health sector. You take more pride in the work you do and in your health routines than any other time of the year. You are sorting through the experiences of the last several months, separating the worthwhile from the worthless. This is a good time to build your skills, to get organized, and to attend to your health and wellbeing. It’s a great time to make improvements to your regular routines. Your self-esteem and your ego are tied up in the work you do and in the services you give. You may be drawn into some form of service that will bring deep personal satisfaction. At this time, you seek perfection and distinction in your work and this quality bring you a more responsible position. This cycle presents an opportunity to get rid of what doesn't work in your life, while also discovering what does. More than any time of the year, you are conscious of your mental and physical health, daily routines, everyday working life, and your working methods.

From the 20th, the Sun illuminates your seventh house. At this time of year, you have a greater need than usual to be with a partner. Bouncing ideas off someone helps you to better understand yourself. A partner provides a mirror for your own self-discovery. Now is the time to realize your own potential through a significant other. During this cycle, you focus on balancing your personal interests and objectives with your social life, or with those of a partner. The emphasis is on "us" rather than "me". You need the energies, companionship, and support of other people, and they may also seek out your support and companionship. It's important to include others rather than to go solo for the time being. However, bending too much to the will of another is not advised either. Social interactions of a personal, one-on-one kind are emphasized. Circumstances are such that your diplomacy skills are required. Your popularity is increasing, and is reinforced by your own ability to cooperate and harmonize. Your ego and pride are tied up in how you relate to others now. This may be an especially busy time for people who consult or work with clients one-on-one.

This is an excellent month for finding solutions to irksome problems, especially from the second week of April. Your energy and vigor increases, and so does your resistance (both physical and mental). You have all the resources at hand to get your life on track. A new position or task on the job keeps you busy, and any domestic conflicts you have been experiencing are ironed out by mid-April. Financial and romantic opportunities arise in the last week of the month, and recognition on a professional level warms your spirit around the 19th.

Jupiter retrogrades this month, kicking off a retrograde period that lasts until the first week of August, and involves some re-thinking of matters surrounding your personal finances and possessions. By August, you will be ready to move forward in these areas with gusto. Saturn's direct motion this month suggests that any stagnation you've been experiencing with your career and reputation will begin to lift and these matters start to move forward. It's also a helpful influence for communications and learning.

Your rulers, Pluto and Mars, forms stimulating connections to each other, Chiron, the Sun, and Mercury on the 4-5, 15-19, and 26, representing opportunity periods for you. Others naturally appreciate the unique qualities that make you "you" on the 15-19. You can enjoy increased authority and personal influence during this period. Intelligence is at a peak on the 26th, when you can present your ideas to an especially receptive audience. Red flag periods--times when you are not received as well as you would like, or are prone to impulsive, hasty, or ill-timed behavior--occur on the 9-11, when social blunders or miscommunications are more likely.

Opportunity periods for personal finances occur on the 9-10 and 21. Speculation and new financial initiatives are best avoided on the 2-4, 24-25, 27-28, and 30, when your financial planet forms challenging or awkward aspects.

As far as romantic and creative matters go, opportunities to enhance or attract romance occur on the 9-12 and 21-22. These days represent power days for personal magnetism, charisma, and creativity. Issues that could be annoying or disconcerting concerning romantic matters are more likely to occur on the 2-4, 14, 24-25. These would be less than ideal days to go on a first date, for example. With regard to your serious partnerships, long-term relationships tend to thrive on the 5-8, 24-25, 27-28, and 30. Use these periods for strengthening your connection or attracting a serious partnership. Tensions in close partnerships are more likely on the 1-4, 10-11, 20-23, and 29.

Better times to schedule job interviews or health appointments, and for success and happiness on the job, occur on the 4-5, 14-17, and 28. Red flag periods for these matters occur on the 1-2, 21-24, and 27-30, when you should probably avoid scheduling health appointments or job interviews if feasible. Matters related to your career and reputation tend to thrive on the 3-5, 7-12, and 18-19 (especially). Challenges with these matters are more likely to occur on the 1-2, 21-23, and 24-25, when others may not see you in the best light!

Venus continues her trek through your partnership sector until the 12th. To a very marked degree, your general well-being and emotional health depend on sound and meaningful relationships--both social and romantic during this cycle. Financial prosperity or social success may come through your marriage partner at this time. Special attention to and from a partner is in focus, and flattery will get you everywhere if you use it wisely. Set aside some private time when no one else can get in the way of the feelings you want to share. Give to a partner exactly what you would like to receive just now. It's not about you right now--it's about someone else close, and the sweeter your attentions, the more delicious your rewards will be! Smoothing out your close personal relationships is what makes you happy during this cycle. You have a greater need than usual for contact and exchange with an intimate partner. If single, you are more willing than normal to enter into a committed relationship. In general, you are adaptable when it comes to your affections.

Venus warms your solar eighth house from the 12th. During this cycle, a financial boost is possible, or you may gain financially through your partner. A deep and intimate connection made now could be revitalizing and even healing. You are more inclined to want to smooth over differences in a partnership concerning the sharing of power, intimacy matters, finances, and other emotionally-charged topics. Intimate relationships are intensified now. Either you or your partner want a deeper union.

Mercury continues to transit your solar fifth house until the 10th. During this cycle, there is a powerful mental connection with your creative self-expression. You are proud of your ideas, and very good at expressing them to others smoothly now. Your thinking is more creative than usual. You tend to entertain others with your conversation, and your sense of humor (and of mischief!) is especially strong. Your thoughts turn to children, pleasures, or romance during this expressive cycle. 

Mercury transits your solar sixth house from the 10-27. This is a good placement for Mercury, as it is the natural ruler of the sixth house. It's an excellent period for sorting out the details of your daily existence. You are inclined to make to-do lists, pay bills and sort out clutter, and to do detail work on the job. Health matters are most certainly on your brain as well, and you could be thinking of scheduling check-ups or busy researching ways to improve your health. You may also show a keener interest in improving your basic skills. Your approach to work during this cycle is pleasant, happy, and logical for the most part, unless you allow worry or scattered energy to enter the picture. You are inclined to want to learn new work skills, or to improve your skills and output in terms of work. There is likely to be more activity, movement, contact, and communications with co-workers now. You tend to take more interest in organizing your working environment--and this is an excellent time to do so, as you are especially objective and intelligent when it comes to getting a handle on your daily affairs and all of the "little things" that contribute to a feeling of efficiency and competency. Menial tasks become more prominent. Watch, however, for tension or idle chit-chat interfering with your work output during this cycle.

Mercury transits your solar seventh house from the 27th. You tend to weigh the pros and cons of every issue during this cycle, taking into account others' needs as well as your own. Some indecisiveness is possible now, simply because you naturally entertain opposing viewpoints. You have a strong desire to cooperate and communicate with others now. You feel most comfortable spending time with people on a one-to-one level, or with those with whom you share a personal history. Your own thoughts become clearer through dialogue with others.

Mars brings heat, energy, and urgency to your solar fifth house from the 6th. This is a very self-expressive time when you have lots of energy, but not necessarily self-discipline to match. You have more energy at your disposal to express yourself creatively, through activities with children, romantic activities, hobbies, or sports. Your love life may step up a notch, and this could be an especially passionate time. You tend to put more energy into play and pleasure! Be careful not to burn the candle at both ends. Also, watch out for a tendency to want to gamble. You are more playful than usual, and especially magnetic.

Highlights:

April 2 Full Moon in Libra in your solar twelfth house. Relationships come into focus--dependency issues surface now. Circumstances are such that you have an overwhelming need to be alone. You've been busy with all sorts of everyday activities, deeply involved in your work and routines. It's time to balance your life with some down time—otherwise, you simply don't feel whole. Issues come to light that originate from deep within. It's an excellent time to get in touch with what's been brewing beneath the surface. A secret may be revealed.

April 4-5 Your Personal New Moon. A new personal cycle begins for you, and you feel fresh and re-energized. It's all about you now, so it's time to put your best foot forward. A blast of personal energy comes your way, and showing your leadership skills works for you now. You are at your most convincing, as others are accepting you at face value. Some people find that the Moon in their sign brings with it a restless, discontented, and emotional state, and that there is more on their plate than they expected or wanted. If this is the case for you, remember that these feelings are there because you need to make a change, however big or small. Use it to stimulate activity and positive change.

April 7-8 Operative energies include Mercury sextile Venus and the Sun trine Saturn. This is a good time for us to take care of practical and "earthly" matters. Meeting responsibilities is satisfying now. For you, this is a highly productive and possibly profitable period for all work and career matters.

April 7-8 Monthly money and income peak. You're looking at the world in terms of value and worth now, and what you have (or don't have) is on your mind. Money issues pop up now—the discovery of a way to increase your income, an unexpected gift or reward, or a brief and tiny financial crisis that motivates you to find new ways to make money are possible.

April 9-12 Operative energies include Sun trine Jupiter and sextile Neptune; and Mercury square Pluto. Idealistic and humanitarian goals or impulses surface now, although a suspicious attitude or stance could also be part of the picture. For you, this is a strong period for personal finances and work matters. Something arrives unexpectedly that boosts your confidence in these areas of your life.

April 13-14 Romance and pleasure are highlights right now with the Moon in your solar fifth. The Moon is in your element, and so are you! The flowing, expressive, and spontaneous energy surrounding you attracts like-minded (and hearted) people. Be sure to take time to enjoy yourself, preferably around others! Keywords: romance, creativity, spontaneity, pleasure, self-expression.

April 17 New Moon late Aries in your solar sixth house affects you until the next New Moon in May. The New Moon in the sixth house heralds a time when new diet regimes, healthy routines, and satisfying work schedules can be successfully initiated. It is a time of taking care of business, handling details, and increasing your efficiency by re-organizing or simply by working enthusiastically at tasks that help you get caught up in your work. It is also a good time for analysis of any sort, as critical thinking is now at its peak. This period is marked by a desire to sort things out, but also to be useful. 

April 17-18 Your partnerships are highlighted right now, and it's time to compromise. Insecurities in your partnerships are brought to light now, and the best way to handle this is to understand that you need others instead of competing for the floor. Some people find this time of the lunar month an energy sapper, as they feel ignored or unnoticed. Trying to go it alone won't work just now. The spotlight is on other people for the time being, and it's best to let them shine. Concentrate on truly listening to those close to you, and on playing a supportive role. Perhaps not a time to be make a presentation or to come on strong to the world. You are feeling reflective rather than expressive.

April 18-19 Operative energies include Sun trine Pluto and Mercury sextile Chiron. Intensity of focus, healing conversations, and a renewed sense of purpose are with us now. For you, this is a strong period for practical matters and a sense of security. You could win some admiration or respect now. Career matters are also strong.

April 21-22 Operative energies include Mercury trine Jupiter and Saturn and sextile Neptune. Strong productivity on mental levels characterizes this combination. It's a good period for coming up with successful business plans and strategies. This is yet another combination in April that is strong for career, work, and finances. This can be a time of great constructive accomplishment, and is excellent for news on the financial front.

April 24-25 Monthly career and reputation peak. Your credibility is important at this time of the lunar month, and efforts at self-promotion might be made now. This is the time when you're noticed for what you've done or haven't done. Do your best to be in top form, make career adjustments if needed, and don't be afraid to show others exactly what you're made of. You're at your best when you are showing the world your practical, competent, and responsible side.

April 26-30 A creative combination occurs now, involving a T-square between Venus, Jupiter, Mars and Uranus. Saturn and Neptune form harmonious angles to the Venus-Jupiter opposition. This exciting and possibly upsetting configuration stimulates your pleasure, romance, intimacy, and financial sectors. Sudden and unexpected happenings can occur with romantic partners, children, or creative projects. You are much more willing to experiment and take chances, to try new things, and to be a little wild. If you are artistically or creatively inclined, you'll discover a fresh approach or technique which may radically alter your work, and you'll have bursts of sudden inspiration and intense activity. Also, unusual, exciting romantic activities are quite possible now. Watch for differences of opinion with a partner now. One of you may want more intimacy.

Scorpio (Born October 24 to November 2) and Scorpio Ascendant 0 to 10 degrees Scorpio:

March 2007: Scorpio Horoscope: Love, Career, & General Trends
 

March

Overview. Until the 21st, the Sun continues to spotlight your solar fifth house--a time when pleasure-seeking activities come into focus and grab much of your attention. You are particularly personally charming in a spontaneous, natural way during this solar cycle. This is the time of year when you are ready to perform and to express yourself creatively. This is a very playful cycle, when you are inspired creatively and emotionally.

From the 21st, the Sun puts a spotlight on your solar sixth house. During this cycle, you take more pride in the work you do and in your health routines than any other time of the year. You are sorting through the experiences of the last several months, separating the worthwhile from the worthless. This is a good time to build your skills, to get organized, and to attend to your health and wellbeing. It’s a great time to make improvements to your regular routines. Your self-esteem and your ego are tied up in the work you do and in the services you give. Details are more important to you now. It's time to bring order to your life by focusing on the little things that make up the whole. This cycle presents an opportunity to get rid of what doesn't work in your life, while also discovering what does. You could seek distinction and strive towards perfection in your work. Efficiency should be your goal now. Your physical health, as well as the relationship between your body and your mind, are in focus.

Material benefits from your career are very likely this month, as well as increased respectability and security. You are especially rooted in the world of the five senses now, and tending to practical matters brings rewards. Romantic unrest or surprises arise in the first week of the month. Differences are ironed out by the second week. Some will experience this energy through relationships with their children. A new start on a romantic level arrives from the 19th, when a solar eclipse brings brand new energy to your love life for months to come.

From the 7th, Mercury turns direct and matters that have been stagnant for you begin to move forward. Mercury leaves its storm on the 16th, when "all things Mercury" tend to resume near-normal pace, and leaves its shadow on March 27th. From the 16-27th, we have a chance to revisit matters that may have stumped or annoyed us while Mercury was retrograde, or to put into action ideas that came to us during this cycle. For you, communications with friends, groups, intimate partners, family members, romantic partners, and children resume with less confusion and more clarity.

Two eclipses occur this month. One is a Lunar Eclipse on the 3rd at 13 degrees Virgo. Its opposition to Uranus brings a surprising turn of events. The other is a Solar Eclipse on the 19th at 28 degrees of Pisces. The effects of eclipses stay with us for as long as six months, and they reveal main areas of focus for this half-year period. A general rule of thumb regarding eclipses is to avoid major decision-making in the week before an eclipse. This is because new information that could change our perspective often is revealed in the week after the eclipse. Therefore, major decision-making is best avoided from March 1-3 and then March 12-19th.

The Lunar Eclipse on the 3rd stimulates your solar eleventh house. Surprises surrounding long-term goals, friendships, and group affiliations may be in store. Something that has been "in hiding" or brewing under the surface of things comes to light, or there is a significant fruition or culmination. This could manifest, for example, as a situation that tests a friendship, a culmination or fruition of a casual relationship, you could be called upon to perform a humanitarian gesture, a friend may experience a little crisis and ask for your help, you could suddenly find yourself around many people, perhaps after a period of relative solitude or private time, and other such possibilities.

The Solar Eclipse on the 19th marks a new beginning for you. Letting go of the past is necessary in order to move forward. This eclipse occurs in your solar fifth house, suggesting a new approach to love, children, or creative projects. A new set-up in existing love affairs or a new love affair altogether may be formed in the coming months, as well as a sense of renewal and reinvigoration with regards to your ability to express yourself spontaneously and creatively. This is a phase when you have an increased awareness of your need for fun and leisure activities.

Jupiter trines Saturn this month, linking your second and tenth houses in a pleasing way. This is a period of constructive accomplishment. We are practical, realistic, and our judgment is especially sound--and we derive much satisfaction from practical accomplishment. The key to harnessing this wonderful energy is to identify and find pleasure in the simple things that make you happy. For you, some material benefits can come from your career. Alternatively, you may have more resources to invest into your career or business. You may find that you are more able to earn a living from what you love doing this year. This trend continues for the next few months.

Your ruler, Pluto, forms stimulating connections to Mercury and Venus this month on the 1st and 16-17, representing opportunity periods for you. New knowledge and an opportunity to achieve a mental gain comes your way on the 1st. On the 16-17, romantic and creative sparks lead to growth. Red flag periods--times when you are not received as well as you would like, or are prone to impulsive, hasty, or ill-timed behavior--occur on the 15th, 19-20, and 28-29. Try not to let the past interfere with the present. If a special someone is hell-bent on bringing up the past, be sensitive, but emphasize the good in the present as well.

Opportunity periods for personal finances occur on the 7-8, 14-18, and 22-24. Speculation and new financial initiatives are best avoided on the 1-2, 9th, and 21st, when your financial planet is challenged.

As far as romantic and creative matters go, opportunities to enhance or attract romance occur on the 9-10 and 24-26. These days represent power days for personal magnetism, charisma, and creativity. Issues that could be annoying or disconcerting concerning romantic matters are more likely to occur in the first week of the month and the 27th. These would be less than ideal days to go on a first date, for example. For more serious partnerships, long-term relationships tend to thrive on the 2-3, 7-10 (especially), 16, and 30-31. Tensions in close partnerships are more likely on the 17-18, 21, and 28-29.

Better times to schedule job interviews or health appointments, and for success and happiness on the job, occur on the 23-26. Red flag periods for these matters occur on the 1-2, 21-22, and 27-31, when you should probably avoid scheduling health appointments or job interviews if feasible. Matters related to your career and reputation tend to thrive on the 3-5, when unusual or surprising events are likely to arise. Challenges with these matters are more likely to occur on the 8-10, 18-22, and 24-31, when others may not see you in the best light!

Venus transits your solar sixth until the 17th. The areas of life where you are most likely to express your social, romantic, and artistic qualities are in establishing a happy and harmonious work environment through friendly relations with colleagues. Romantic and social activities may revolve around your working environment. You are generally well liked and respected socially on the job right now. This is a good time to promote harmony and good will on the job. Some laziness is possible now, as you tend to associate pleasure with work. Perhaps you are socializing more than usual on the job. You have good team spirit during this cycle, and you are more tactful and obliging with your co-workers. You are less inclined to fall in love for the sake of love itself during this cycle. Your tendency is to consider whether it is clever to do so! You're most successful doing tasks that involve cooperation and team harmony, or the personal, human side of things.

Venus eases through your solar seventh house from the 17th forward. Special attention to and from a partner is in focus, and flattery will get you everywhere if you use it wisely. One-to-one relating appeals to you more than group activities or more casual connections. Smoothing out your close personal relationships is what makes you happy during this cycle. If single, you are more willing than normal to enter into a committed relationship. In general, you are adaptable when it comes to your affections--very willing to compromise, negotiate, and make peace.

Mercury transits your solar fourth house until the 18th. This is a time when you can enjoy increased powers of concentration. You may require solitude in order to get mental work done during this cycle. Your memory is more retentive than usual, and your thoughts often turn to personal matters, family, and loved ones. You might particularly enjoy discussions about your early life, the past, or family matters during this cycle. In fact, it's a great time to open up conversations with loved ones, as you are more rational when it comes to personal matters now. Your mind often wanders to domestic concerns, and issues surrounding your home, family, and personal past. On the other hand, this transit sometimes indicates an especially busy, and perhaps hectic, period on the domestic scene. For example, you might take home work or find that people drop by your home often during this cycle. Do be more cautious with your communications while Mercury is retrograde until the 7th, however. Be as clear as you can to avoid misunderstandings.

Mercury transits your solar fifth house from the 18th. During this cycle, there is a powerful mental connection with your creative self-expression. You are proud of your ideas, and very good at expressing them to others smoothly now. Your thinking is more creative than usual. You tend to entertain others with your conversation, and your sense of humor (and of mischief!) is especially strong. Your thoughts turn to children, pleasures, or romance during this expressive cycle.

Mars moves through your fourth house all month, energizing your domestic life and relationships with family. This might express itself as more activity on the home front. You could literally apply your energy to working around the house, for example. Or, you might find that there is a lot of hustle and bustle in your home. Energized interaction with family is also very possible now, and this can be positive or negative, depending on how the energy is handled! You are slightly more defensive and certainly more protective than usual during this period. You might engage in arguments with, or on behalf of, those closest to you.

Overall, the best period of the month for you is the 18-28, when your ideas are received especially well and you enjoy more mental clarity than usual.

Highlights:

February 28-March 1 Monthly career and reputation peak. Your credibility is important at this time of the lunar month, and efforts at self-promotion might be made now. This is the time when you're noticed for what you've done or haven't done. Do your best to be in top form, make career adjustments if needed, and don't be afraid to show others exactly what you're made of. You're at your best when you are showing the world your practical, competent, and responsible side.

March 1-3 Operative energies include Mercury sextile Pluto, Venus sextile Chiron, Mars semi-square Jupiter. New information begins to come to light, and we have the power to heal our social relationships. Because this period occurs just before a lunar eclipse, hold off on finalizing any deals or plans if you can, however. But do pay attention to the information that surfaces now. For you, happy communications lift your spirits, and a partnership runs especially well.

March 3 Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Virgo in your solar eleventh house. Flaws in an important system in your life come to light. The effects of this eclipse last for six months. You've been focusing on what brings you pleasure—your hobbies, romantic activities, and so forth. Now you realize that the role you play in others' lives (as a spouse, parent, friend) is an important element in your overall happiness. You're looking for validation from friends and group activities now. You may be called upon to perform a humanitarian gesture. For example, a friend may experience a little crisis and asks for your help. You may suddenly find yourself around many people, perhaps after a period of relative solitude or private time.

March 4-5 The Sun conjuncts Uranus in your solar fifth house. Personal inhibitions and social conventions which in the past may have restricted your self-expression or creativity are now shed. You are much more willing to experiment and take chances, to try new things, and to be a little wild. If you are artistically or creatively inclined, you'll discover a fresh approach or technique which may radically alter your work, and you'll have bursts of sudden inspiration and intense activity. Unusual, exciting romantic scenarios are quite possible now.

March 8-9 Operative energies include Venus trine Jupiter and Saturn, Venus sextile Neptune, and Sun square Jupiter. This is an especially strong influence for creative output and is also excellent for cementing relationships. Because the grand trine affects your houses of substance, it's strong for practical affairs, work, and especially finances.

March 8-9 Your Personal New Moon. A new personal cycle begins for you, and you feel fresh and re-energized. It's all about you now, so it's time to put your best foot forward. A blast of personal energy comes your way, and showing your leadership skills works for you now. You are at your most convincing, as others are accepting you at face value. Some people find that the Moon in their sign brings with it a restless, discontented, and emotional state, and that there is more on their plate than they expected or wanted. If this is the case for you, remember that these feelings are there because you need to make a change, however big or small. Use it to stimulate activity and positive change.

March 10-11 Monthly money and income peak. You're looking at the world in terms of value and worth now, and what you have (or don't have) is on your mind. Money issues pop up now—the discovery of a way to increase your income, an unexpected gift or reward, or a brief and tiny financial crisis that motivates you to find new ways to make money are possible.

March 15-16 Operative energies include Mars conjunct Chiron, Mercury sextile Venus, and Venus trine Pluto. Gaining new perspectives on romantic and sexual relationships, or on creative projects, occurs now. We seek out others, but won't settle for superficial connections. This can be a time of epiphanies and release of suppressed energies. Important contracts and new beginnings, however, are best avoided until after the Solar Eclipse on the 18th.

March 17-18 Romance and pleasure are highlights right now with the Moon in your solar fifth. The Moon is in your element, and so are you! The flowing, expressive, and spontaneous energy surrounding you attracts like-minded (and hearted) people. Be sure to take time to enjoy yourself, preferably around others! Keywords: romance, creativity, spontaneity, pleasure, self-expression.

March 18 New Moon Solar Eclipse in late Pisces in your solar fifth house affects you for the next six months. A time to focus on goals involving compassion, letting go of the past, and acceptance. Nagging problems from the past six months need to be dealt with and put behind you. Creative self-expression comes under the realm of the fifth house, and a New Moon occurring here sparks the creative juices. Romantic inclinations are also highlighted, as are any kind of celebratory, playful, and just-for-fun endeavors. You will be especially aware of your need for approval and feedback from others, deriving pleasure from the ways your own creativity impact the world around you. This can be a passionate time for you, and a time when you might feel more bold than usual. If you are feeling good about yourself, and especially if you have taken advantage of the time for re-building of confidence that the New Moon in the fourth house brought, you will fairly radiate during this expressive period. 

March 21-22 Your partnerships are highlighted right now, and it's time to compromise. Insecurities in your partnerships are brought to light now, and the best way to handle this is to understand that you need others instead of competing for the floor. Some people find this time of the lunar month an energy sapper, as they feel ignored or unnoticed. Trying to go it alone won't work just now. The spotlight is on other people for the time being, and it's best to let them shine. Concentrate on truly listening to those close to you, and on playing a supportive role. Perhaps not a time to be make a presentation or to come on strong to the world. You are feeling reflective rather than expressive.

March 22-25 A mixed bag of energies operant now brings challenges as well as enlightenment. Mars in your eleventh house opposes Saturn, sextiles Jupiter, and conjuncts Neptune.

March 28-29 Venus forms tense angles to Chiron and Pluto. This is a less than ideal period for financial transactions and for social relationships. Tensions derived from lack of trust are likely now. Challenges involving intimacy and trust issues in close partnerships could be part of the picture for you during this period.

March 28-29 Monthly career and reputation peak. Your credibility is important at this time of the lunar month, and efforts at self-promotion might be made now. This is the time when you're noticed for what you've done or haven't done. Do your best to be in top form, make career adjustments if needed, and don't be afraid to show others exactly what you're made of. You're at your best when you are showing the world your practical, competent, and responsible side.

Scorpio (Born October 24 to November 2) and Scorpio Ascendant 0 to 10 degrees Scorpio: 

February 2007: Scorpio Horoscope: Love, Career, & General Trends
 

February

Overview. Until the 19th, the Sun continues to highlight your solar fourth house--a transit that began in January. This is a cycle in which home and family matters capture your attention and are a strong source of pride. It's a time when worldly matters are not as important to you. Use this energy to find ways to improve your family relations and your home environment. During this heartwarming cycle, you would do best to allow yourself to explore your inner needs so that you can nurture yourself and others in a healthy, growth-oriented manner.

From the 19th, the Sun illuminates your solar fifth house. After a period of “nesting”, you are coming out of your shell, ready to perform and to express yourself creatively. This is a very playful period of the year, when you are inspired creatively and emotionally. After a period of self-protectiveness, you are now more spontaneous and more willing to take risks. You take more pride than usual in your creations, your love affairs, your children, and your hobbies. Pleasure and amusement play an important role in your search for freedom of self-expression now. Show off your best colors! You want others to take notice, and you are more sensitive to whether people appreciate you. More than any time of the year, this is the cycle in which you focus on having fun, enjoying romance, and expressing yourself creatively. Your hobbies, leisure time, moments spent with children, gaming time, and so forth, all come into focus at this time of year. This is a cycle in which you find joy in expressing who you are--when your "inner child" comes out to play. This is a time when you are more flirtatious than usual, and when you might take a few risks in life--not only gambling with games but with life itself. You might be a bit of a showman at this time. You are likely feeling good in general, and you tend to spread the joy.

Although your heart is with your home now, developments in your career could conflict with your personal plans around the 10th. A romantic attraction or an unexpected chance to have a great time invigorates you around the 7th. Watch your pocketbook--you could be feeling so good that you temporarily forget that there will be bills to pay next month! This is an excellent time to work on intellectual tasks with more vigor and passion. There isn’t a project or task that you can’t master in February.

This month, Mercury retrogrades from the 13th forward (until March 7th). Mercury retrograde cycles are periods in which communications and transportation matters don't go as smoothly as usual. All Mercury retrograde cycles particularly affect you in terms of communications with friends or groups, as well as intimate communications and shared financial resources, because Mercury rules these areas of your life.
Occurring in your solar fourth and fifth houses this time, extra care should be exercised when it comes to family relations, romance, children, and creativity. Be as non-judgmental as you can with family members. New initiatives surrounding home and property are best left for a better time. Re-thinking your romantic relationships or creative projects is possible now, but you should avoid jumping to any premature decisions. It would be wise to be especially clear when it comes to communicating with friends, groups, intimate partners, family members, romantic partners, and children, or take this time to re-examine issues rather than communicating about them prematurely.

Your ruler, Pluto, forms some pleasing connections with Mercury and the Sun this month on the 1 and 16-17. These represent opportunity periods for you. The 1st is a period in which you are able to communicate with increased influence. It's also a strong period for financial matters. On the 16-17, you are recognized for your leadership skills. Red flag periods--times when you are not received as well as you would like, or are prone to impulsive, hasty, or ill-timed behavior--occur on the 2 and 19-20. These issues may revolve around home, family, and romance--matters that certainly grab much of your attention in February. You may feel unappreciated on the 19-20.

Opportunity periods for personal finances occur on the 1-4 especially as well as the 17-18. Speculation and new financial initiatives are best avoided on the 8-9 and 28.

As far as romantic and creative matters go, opportunities to enhance or attract romance occur on the 7-8. These represent power days for personal magnetism, charisma, and creativity. Issues that could be annoying or disconcerting concerning romantic matters are more likely to occur on the 25 and 27-28. These would be less than ideal days to go on a first date, for example. For more serious partnerships, long-term relationships tend to thrive on the 1, 7, and 12-13. Tensions in close partnerships are more likely on the 9, 14, 18-20, and 24-25.

Better times to schedule job interviews or health appointments, and for success and happiness on the job, occur on the 2-4 and 12-13. Red flag periods for these matters occur on the 14, 17, 23-24, and 28, when you should probably avoid scheduling health appointments or job interviews if feasible. Career and reputation matters run especially well on the 3-4, 7-8, and particularly the 16-19, when some form of recognition is likely. Challenges with these matters are more likely on the 2 and 10, when you may not be seen in an especially favorable light by superiors or the public.

Venus transits your fifth house until the 21st. This is an expressive period for the goddess of love! It's natural for you to turn on the charm without even lifting a finger. You are especially attracted to aesthetic forms of recreation. You feel a little more playful now, and love matters tend to be laced with a touch of drama. That shouldn't be a problem--in fact, you kind of like it that way for the time being. More loving and appreciative relationships with your children may also figure now. Your powers of attraction skyrocket during this cycle. Yet, you are not aggressive in your approach to love. Instead, you attract more if you allow yourself to be pursued during this cycle. Creative self-expression of any kind is favored at this time. At this time, you instinctively know how to place yourself in the best light in order to make a good impression on others. Any love affair begun now will be characterized by good cheer, having fun, and a fair share of emotional drama!

Venus transits your sixth house from the 21st forward. Establishing a happy and harmonious work environment through friendly relations with co-workers or tidying up your work area comes into focus no. Romantic and social activities may revolve around your working environment. You are generally well liked and respected socially on the job right now. Some laziness is possible now, as you tend to associate pleasure with work! Perhaps you are socializing more than usual on the job. You have good team spirit during this cycle, and you are more tactful and obliging with your co-workers. You are less inclined to fall in love for the sake of love itself during this cycle. Your tendency is to consider whether it is clever to do so! You're most successful doing tasks that involve cooperation and team harmony. You could find that your talents or skills are especially appreciated. Romantic and social activities may revolve around your working environment. 

Mercury moves through your solar fifth house all month. During this cycle, there is a powerful mental connection with your creative self-expression. You are proud of your ideas, and very good at expressing them to others smoothly now. Your thinking is more creative than usual. You tend to entertain others with your conversation; and your sense of humor (and of mischief!) is especially strong. Your thoughts turn to children, pleasures, or romance during this expressive cycle.  You might enjoy researching speculative ventures now. You especially enjoy games that involve competing with others on a mental level. You have a stronger need than usual for intellectual stimulation. Therefore, your friends and romantic partner are best appreciated now if they are intellectual types. You're more willing to take risks on a mental level now, so take advantage of the increased spontaneity and creativity that comes with this position. Do be more cautious with your communications and with these matters while Mercury is retrograde from the 13th through to March 7th, however. Be as clear as you can to avoid misunderstandings.

Mars continues to energize your solar third house until the 26th. You are likely to have many ideas and plans going during this transit, and you might be inclined to scatter your energies as a result. Channeled well, this is a good time to sell your ideas to others, or to present your case. You may be especially busy running errands and communicating with others. More articulate than usual, you may also have a more assertive, self-centered, or provocative communication style at this time. As such, discussions may become heated, or they may escalate into arguments, more easily. If this is the case, it's likely because you are taking things very personally right now, or because you are over-identifying with your beliefs and ideas. A tendency to be impatient or impulsive while driving or while performing manual tasks, generally with the hands, may lead to accidents, so it's wise to be careful on the road or while operating machinery or even using scissors! This is an excellent time to work on intellectual tasks with more vigor and passion.

Overall, the best periods of the month for you are the 1-5, when your natural charm is well-received; and the 19-28, when matters tend to flow smoothly.

Highlights:

February 1-2 Monthly career and reputation peak. Your credibility is important at this time of the lunar month, and efforts at self-promotion might be made now. This is the time when you're noticed for what you've done or haven't done. Do your best to be in top form, make career adjustments if needed, and don't be afraid to show others exactly what you're made of. You're at your best when you are showing the world your practical, competent, and responsible side.

February 2 Full Moon in Leo in your solar tenth house. You are suddenly in the limelight—everyone notices you now. It's time to put your best foot forward, but be sure to do so with grace and consideration for others, or you may just make a display that you regret later. Perhaps you've been hiding yourself away, taking it easy. Now you need a little attention, and career matters come to a head. You're called to perform, perhaps on a moment's notice, and it's best to keep your cool and do whatever you can to show your competence. A sudden job opportunity, or some form of assistance with regards to career, home, or property matters, could be part of the picture. This can also produce an event that requires you to take charge and show your responsible side.

February 3-4 The Sun sextiles Jupiter and Mars sextiles Uranus. This is a strong period for learning, growth, advancement, and adventurous activities. It's favorable for marketing, publishing, and advertising, as well as any self-promotion activities. We may be especially sociable, tolerant, and generous. Confidence comes from a stronger sense of who we are and the principles we represent, as well as an ability to take healthy and reasonable risks.

February 7-8 The Sun conjuncts Neptune and Venus conjuncts Uranus. This is a "make a wish" day. Spiritual goals come into focus. As well, bringing a spirit of friendship and freedom into close personal relationships is featured. Unexpected events and/or synchronicities occur now in your romantic relationships and in your domestic affairs.

February 8-9 Your Personal New Moon. A new personal cycle begins for you, and you feel fresh and re-energized. It's all about you now, so it's time to put your best foot forward. A blast of personal energy comes your way, and showing your leadership skills works for you now. You are at your most convincing, as others are accepting you at face value. Some people find that the Moon in their sign brings with it a restless, discontented, and emotional state, and that there is more on their plate than they expected or wanted. If this is the case for you, remember that these feelings are there because you need to make a change, however big or small. Use it to stimulate activity and positive change.

February 10 The Sun in your fourth house opposes Saturn in your tenth house. Restrictions and pressures may be felt now revolving around your professional affairs. Feeling bogged down by these pressures is possible, affecting your home life. Avoid new initiatives now if you can.

February 11-12 Monthly money and income peak. You're looking at the world in terms of value and worth now, and what you have (or don't have) is on your mind. Money issues pop up now—the discovery of a way to increase your income, an unexpected gift or reward, or a brief and tiny financial crisis that motivates you to find new ways to make money are possible.

February 17-18 Romance and pleasure are highlights right now with the Moon in your solar fifth. The Moon is in your element, and so are you! The flowing, expressive, and spontaneous energy surrounding you attracts like-minded (and hearted) people. Be sure to take time to enjoy yourself, preferably around others! Keywords: romance, creativity, spontaneity, pleasure, self-expression.

February 18 New Moon in late Aquarius in your solar fourth house affects you until the next New Moon. A time to focus on goals involving friendships, long-term happiness, dreams, and wishes. Home and family may be a focus during this phase. On a personal, developmental level, this is a time to not only listen to what is in your gut, but to pay homage to those feelings! What makes you feel safe and secure? This is the time to explore and develop a sense of inner security. Although the fourth house is associated with the home, it is an angular, cardinal house that stirs up activity. This is a time of re-organization and heightened awareness of your roots, issues of intimacy and vulnerability, and it's an excellent time to come in touch with your feelings and needs. Focusing on your support system and the manner in which you support others is also probable. This is a good time to make long-range plans for the future, to do any type of re-organizing or even re-modeling of the home or home environment, and for family-related activities.

February 22-23 Your partnerships are highlighted right now, and it's time to compromise. Insecurities in your partnerships are brought to light now, and the best way to handle this is to understand that you need others instead of competing for the floor. Some people find this time of the lunar month an energy sapper, as they feel ignored or unnoticed. Trying to go it alone won't work just now. The spotlight is on other people for the time being, and it's best to let them shine. Concentrate on truly listening to those close to you, and on playing a supportive role. Perhaps not a time to be make a presentation or to come on strong to the world. You are feeling reflective rather than expressive.

February 24-25 Tense angles operant now include Mars-Uranus, Venus-Neptune, and Venus-Saturn. Relations are likely to be tense. Disillusionments with finances as well as personal relationships are possible. Reckless behavior has consequences. For you, this is a period in which disappointments, misunderstandings, and tense relations with a close partner are possible. You are inclined towards impulsive behavior.

February 28-March 1 Monthly career and reputation peak. Your credibility is important at this time of the lunar month, and efforts at self-promotion might be made now. This is the time when you're noticed for what you've done or haven't done. Do your best to be in top form, make career adjustments if needed, and don't be afraid to show others exactly what you're made of. You're at your best when you are showing the world your practical, competent, and responsible side.

Scorpio (Born October 24 to November 2) and Scorpio Ascendant 0 to 10 degrees Scorpio: 

January 2007: Scorpio Horoscope: Love, Career, & General Trends
 

January

scorpio the scorpionOverview. Until the 20th, the Sun highlights your solar third house--a time of the year in which you are most likely to be a "busy bee". Communications, short trips, errand-running, and general busy-ness feature now. You could have a finger in many pies, so to speak, as your curiosity is piqued by a larger variety of things than usual. Used well, this could be a period in which you come up with solutions to a number of problems. You are more inclined to take pride in your intellectual accomplishments and/or your ability to socialize and make connections.

From the 20th, the Sun puts a spotlight on your solar fourth house. Domestic matters are your instinctive focus during this period. Your family, home, property concerns, roots, and heritage come into focus and become a source of pride. You are likely quite preoccupied with feelings of security and your inner experiences. This is a time when you send down roots and seek a feeling of belonging. You could be thrust into a position of leadership on the home front. Ego confrontations with family members are possible now, but the best way to handle this energy is to do your best to strengthen your relationship to your family and your home base. This is a time to do what you can to build trust in your family life and a strong foundation within yourself, so that regardless of what you meet in the outside world over the next months, you have a secure place to return to. Besides spending more time tending to domestic affairs, the focus can be on cultivating and nourishing your inner foundations that support you and your growth. This is a time to collect yourself--to fill your well, so to speak.

Errands, paperwork, and short trips are bound to keep you on your toes this month. A close partnership stabilizes--you can count on your special someone to keep life easygoing and secure. Finances are especially strong, particularly around the 12th and 22nd, when opportunities to increase your cash flow could arise, seemingly from out of the blue. A burst of energy and confidence is with you around the 13th. Apply it to a constructive pursuit and focus on one important endeavor rather than scattering your energy. Sometimes less is more!

This month, the first of three Jupiter-Uranus squares occurs, placing some tension between your second and fifth houses, from now through October. You may experience some conflicts between your desire for security and a stable income and your needs for entertainment and pleasure, or possibly your romantic life. Expanding your personal resources is important to you now, and so is taking a few risks and enjoying your bounty! It can be challenging to accommodate both needs at once. As well, excitement in your romantic and social life may distract you from increasing your earning power. Try not to instigate change just for the sake of change, and avoid rash behavior. On the other hand, if you look for opportunities, you have more confidence and faith now to do something totally different, and inspiration may be found now. But do avoid blowing off responsibilities while you pursue your new vision.

This month, the Sun, Venus, and Mercury align with Chiron in your solar fourth house. You may enjoy key opportunity periods that allow you to improve your home and family life, and do wonders for your basic sense of security and ties to important people in your life, particularly if they are in need of some healing. The key now is confidence and not overstating yourself.

Your ruler, Pluto, makes a powerful connection to Mars on the 12-14, representing a strong opportunity period for you, particularly for energy levels, work and health matters, and personal finances. Other opportunity periods include the 18-20 and 25-26 when you enjoy special charm, the power of negotiation, and opportunities to enhance or attract a close partnership. Other good periods for furthering your goals are from the 8-9 and 31. Red flag periods--times when you are not received as well as you would like, or are prone to impulsive, hasty, or ill-timed behavior--occur on the 22, and 29-30.

Better periods for personal finances occur on the 1, 4-6, and 11. Speculation and new financial initiatives are best avoided on the 12 and 15-17. Speculation is likely a strong urge this month while Mars is transiting your second house (see below).

Opportunities to enhance or attract romance occur on the 1, 18-19, and 26. These periods represent power days for personal magnetism, charisma, and creativity. Small issues that could be annoying or disconcerting concerning romantic matters are more likely to occur on the 12 and 21-22. These would be less than ideal days to go on a first date, for example. For more serious partnerships, long-term relationships tend to thrive on the 4-6, 10-12 (especially strong), 18-19, 25-26, and 29-31. Tensions in close partnerships are more likely on the 14-15 and 22.

Better times to schedule job interviews or health appointments, and for success and happiness on the job, occur on the 1-4, 8-9, and 12-13. Red flag periods for these matters occur on the 6-7, 20-22, 26-27, and 29-30, when you should probably avoid scheduling health appointments or job interviews if feasible. Career and reputation matters run more smoothly on the 1-2, 5-8, and especially the 29-30; and they more easily run into snags on the 14-18.

From the 4-28, Venus moves through your solar fourth house. During this cycle, you are especially fond of the life of the home and family. You are more receptive and gentle on a romantic level, and tend to be sentimental or nostalgic now. You may particularly value the aesthetics in and around your home during this period. If things are out of whack on the home front, you will do whatever you can to create a peaceful and stable atmosphere. Loyalty and sensitivity in your relationships are more important to you than typically. You might focus on ways to earn money in or from your home. This is a calming influence--a time when simple pleasures most appeal.

Mercury transits your solar third house until the 15th. Mercury is right at home in the third house, and offers a natural curiosity, facility with words, and the ability to multi-task successfully. More time spent on the phone, writing emails, in the car making short frequent trips, chatting, running errands, communicating with neighbors and siblings, visiting friends and relatives, and doing paperwork is likely now. There can also be a tendency to fuss over insignificant matters now, however. Also, "information overload" is also a possibility. This may be a busy time with neighbors, classmates, siblings, and community affairs. Your interests are especially varied now, and perhaps scattered. It's an ideal time to pick up information from your environment and the people in it, as your tendency is toward a certain level of intellectual detachment just now. Your mind is often distracted, particularly when circumstances call for you to stick to routine, so this is not the best transit for focusing on one task or project. Your mind is especially inquisitive during this cycle, when learning, short trips, and other forms of communication and making connections, appeal strongly. Some are fidgety or nervous during this cycle, perhaps due to increased errand-running, phone calls, and the like. Others enjoy the challenge of tackling a variety of subjects. As well, talking, writing, and studying can be good ways to handle stress.

Mercury is in your solar fourth house from the 15th. This is a time when you can enjoy increased powers of concentration. You may require solitude in order to get mental work done during this cycle. Your memory is more retentive than usual, and your thoughts often turn to personal matters, family, and loved ones. You might particularly enjoy discussions about your early life, the past, or family matters during this cycle. In fact, it's a great time to open up conversations with loved ones, as you are more rational when it comes to personal matters now. Your mind often wanders to domestic concerns, and issues surrounding your home, family, and personal past. On the other hand, this transit sometimes indicates an especially busy, and perhaps hectic, period on the domestic scene. For example, you might take home work or find that people drop by your home often during this cycle.

Until the 16th, Mars energizes your solar second house. You have more energy at your disposal to make money, but also to defend your values. This can be a very resourceful time, when you make the most of what you have. You have much energy for new money-making projects, or for stepping up existing ones. You may be over-identifying with what you have and own, and you could be trying to prove yourself (your worth) to others using money and possessions as the means to do so. If conflicts occur during this transit, they are likely to be over issues of ownership. This is a time when impulse buying is at a peak. You probably should avoid using credit right now, simply because your spending habits may be excessive and impulsive.

From the 16th, Mars energizes your solar third house. You are likely to have many ideas and plans going during this transit, and you might be inclined to scatter your energies as a result. Channeled well, this is a good time to sell your ideas to others, or to present your case. You may be especially busy running errands and communicating with others. More articulate than usual, you may also have a more assertive, self-centered, or provocative communication style at this time. As such, discussions may become heated, or they may escalate into arguments, more easily. If this is the case, it's likely because you are taking things very personally right now, or because you are over-identifying with your beliefs and ideas. A tendency to be impatient or impulsive while driving or while performing manual tasks, generally with the hands, may lead to accidents, so it's wise to be careful on the road or while operating machinery or even using scissors! This is an excellent time to work on intellectual tasks with more vigor and passion.

Overall, the best period of the month for you is the 16-30, when you are likely to feel energetically supported by others and by life's circumstances.

Highlights:

January 1-2 Jupiter sextiles Chiron, the Sun sextiles Uranus, and Mars sextiles Neptune. This is a creative period for all--one in which we can find new insights into old problems. Willingness to embrace change is the key to success now. With your co-ruler involved, there may be some interesting synchronicities in your life now. This is also a strong period for financial as well as career and reputation matters.

January 3 Full Moon in Cancer in your solar ninth house. Some sort of fulfillment, culmination, or revelation regarding your desires or new initiatives at the last New Moon on December 20th occurs now. Your attention to the logical world of reason has been a focus in the last two weeks. Now you feel a crisis of lack. Your personal beliefs may be tested now. Your impulses and faith matter, and all of the attention you've been giving to mundane affairs has you wondering when you're going to have some fun. You want to take a leap of faith now. Your adventurous side pushes up and out, demanding attention.

January 5-6 Monthly career and reputation peak. Your credibility is important at this time of the lunar month, and efforts at self-promotion might be made now. This is the time when you're noticed for what you've done or haven't done. Do your best to be in top form, make career adjustments if needed, and don't be afraid to show others exactly what you're made of. You're at your best when you are showing the world your practical, competent, and responsible side.

January 6-8 The Sun and Mercury align and Mars trines Saturn. These planetary influences suggest rational, logical, and productive energy. We are actively communicating, and our work takes on definite shape. This is a good time to temper our energy and to exercise better judgment. Traditional methods work, and thoroughness brings rewards. For you, solidifying a work project, or increased responsibilities that give you a healthy sense of purpose on the job, may be in store now. You may be feeling especially strong financially and in your career. This is a good time for all communication matters, and a busy time for worldly affairs.

January 10-12 Venus joins with Chiron and sextiles Jupiter. This is a healing and friendly energy--an excellent time to socialize, promote cooperation, spend time with romantic partners, and to initiate a new relationship or friendship. It's also very strong for financial matters. For you, this is a strong opportunity period for negotiations as well as for close partnerships and family matters. It's also a powerful time for personal finances.

January 12-13 Your Personal New Moon. A new personal cycle begins for you, and you feel fresh and re-energized. It's all about you now, so it's time to put your best foot forward. A blast of personal energy comes your way, and showing your leadership skills works for you now. You are at your most convincing, as others are accepting you at face value. Some people find that the Moon in their sign brings with it a restless, discontented, and emotional state, and that there is more on their plate than they expected or wanted. If this is the case for you, remember that these feelings are there because you need to make a change, however big or small. Use it to stimulate activity and positive change.

January 13-14 Mars joins with Pluto and Venus semi-squares both planets; Mercury semi-squares Uranus. Keywords for this period include intense, passionate, rebellious, and obsessive! Tense interplays between lovers are quite likely now, and the inclination to rebel against routine or expectations is strong. Harness the energy of Mars-Pluto by pouring your energy into a pet project. Sexual relations now can be very intense. Competitive energy is powerful. For you, this is a high-energy period in which you may be inclined towards impulsive actions. It's a good time to throw yourself into your work. With your money sector stimulated, you could come up with a new money-making idea now.

January 15-16 Monthly money and income peak. You're looking at the world in terms of value and worth now, and what you have (or don't have) is on your mind. Money issues pop up now—the discovery of a way to increase your income, an unexpected gift or reward, or a brief and tiny financial crisis that motivates you to find new ways to make money are possible.

January 18 New Moon in late Capricorn in your solar third house affects you until the next New Moon. A time to focus on long-term goals and projects and to formulate career and business plans. The third house rules our communication skills, learning, methods, daily interactions and contact, and general "busy-ness". This is a favorable time for learning something new, feeling at ease in social situations, taking care of the details of daily life, and developing a mental rapport with others. It is a time when you will be more aware of your environment, and when you experience increased alertness. It's a good time to take tests, fill out forms, start a new course, write letters, make phone calls, and take care of daily tasks with energy. 

January 18-20 Venus joins with Neptune and Mercury conjoins Chiron. This can be a very romantic time, although the tendency can be towards seeing what we want to see rather than what is, so romantic mirages are possible now. Kind, healing words and communications are also featured now. A good time to discover new or alternative health procedures and regimes. Soft, pleasant energy dominates. For you, this is a romantic time for a close partnership. Family connections are also idyllic now. An important conversation or communication from a friend or intimate partner can come now.

January 21-22 Romance and pleasure are highlights right now with the Moon in your solar fifth. The Moon is in your element, and so are you! The flowing, expressive, and spontaneous energy surrounding you attracts like-minded (and hearted) people. Be sure to take time to enjoy yourself, preferably around others! Keywords: romance, creativity, spontaneity, pleasure, self-expression.

January 25-26 Venus sextiles Pluto and Mercury aligns with Neptune. An excellent period for romantic and artistic expression. However, don't expect communications to be right-brain, logical, or clear! It's best to delay important decisions. A good period for romance and dreamy conversations. For you, this is a period of attraction--you tend to receive good things now, whether they come to you through invitations, compliments, or material goods. A surprising conversation with a family member or about domestic matters could be part of the picture. This is an excellent period for strengthening or attracting a close partnership.

January 25-26 Your partnerships are highlighted right now, and it's time to compromise. Insecurities in your partnerships are brought to light now, and the best way to handle this is to understand that you need others instead of competing for the floor. Some people find this time of the lunar month an energy sapper, as they feel ignored or unnoticed. Trying to go it alone won't work just now. The spotlight is on other people for the time being, and it's best to let them shine. Concentrate on truly listening to those close to you, and on playing a supportive role. Perhaps not a time to be make a presentation or to come on strong to the world. You are feeling reflective rather than expressive.

January 27-28 Mercury and Mars form challenging angles to Saturn. This can be a tense period in which hitting brick walls is likely. Delay important discussions and avoid beginning new projects, which could be riddled with frustrations and complications down the road.

January 30-31 The Sun joins Chiron and Mercury sextiles Pluto. An excellent period for coming up with innovative new techniques, socializing, and gaining perspective on our long-term goals. It's easy to resolve problems, particularly old, nagging ones, and to cooperate with others in a balanced manner. This is an especially strong period for you for mental tasks and communications. Your ideas are received especially well.

Scorpio (Born November 3 to 12) and Scorpio Ascendant from 10 to 20 degrees Scorpio:

December 2007: Scorpio Horoscope: Love, Career, & General Trends
 

December

 

scorpio the scorpionOverview.

The Sun highlights your second house this month, and your focus is on material affairs and comfort issues. Security is a driving force for you right now, and you might find that you are especially interested in accumulating possessions. What you have and what you don't have come into focus--what makes you feel comfortable, your sense of security, and what you value. This is the time of year when personal finances and possessions receive maximum attention. Pour your energy into your work and your finances, and you might just be able to take your ideas to the bank. Extravagance with your pocketbook is something you may want to look out for, however. If you find yourself itching to make unnecessary purchases, know that at the root of this urge is the desire to pamper and comfort yourself. Nothing wrong with it, but there are inexpensive (and even free) ways to make yourself feel good. This is not the most eventful time of year for you. You are more inclined to dig your heels in and hang on to what makes you feel most secure than to take big risks. 

A strong financial month is in store for you, dear Scorpio. Monetary problems from the past may clear up, especially in the first three weeks of December. A major purchase or sale is very possible. A significant gift or bonus could also come your way. This is a good time to rally for a raise, apply for a loan, or take part in various dealings with financial institutions. You may need to curb an inclination to overspend--feeling good could bring you to the stores as you temporarily forget about the future!

Jupiter joins with Pluto in late Sagittarius before entering Capricorn on the 18th (Pluto will follow suit in January). This alignment represents a culmination of matters in the area of our charts in which it occurs. Jupiter and Pluto have been working through this sector for some time now, re-working your attitude towards these areas of your life. An increased need for shared interests with others, as well as for adventurous or risky undertakings, is with us now as we strive for more personal significance. Benefits may come through those in authority or the government. This can be an ambitious time when a desire for success is especially strong. The ability to sway or persuade can be enhanced. One of the most positive uses of this transit is a drive to better ourselves. We might solve a problem that has been in existence for some time, or capitalize upon a resource that was previously hidden. Social or material goals may come into strong focus, and reform could figure now. Our faith may be reborn or developed strongly. We might decide to invest our time and energy (and possibly money) into an ambitious new project. We should take advantage of the increased drive this transit brings, but avoid tendencies towards self-righteousness, exaggeration, and obsession. This transit generally favors big business, the law, grants, taxes, education, and commerce. Increased influence, faith, and insight are likely now. For you, personal income and possessions, as well as feelings of comfort and security, are in focus and strong. Now is the time to take these matters to a new level. Grab--and make--opportunities in these areas of life.

Jupiter entering earthy Capricorn this month doesn't yet place Jupiter in your solar third house, but this shift is imminent. Jupiter changes sign approximately once a year, so this ingress is significant and represents a new shift of energy that will stay with us until January 2009. From February 2008, Jupiter will officially be transiting your solar third house, and educational and communication opportunities are bound to present themselves. During this long-term trend, neighbors or relatives could be beneficial. You convey your ideas with more enthusiasm, and they are received well. You are able to understand complex subjects and explain them in such a way that others can readily understand. Opportunities for travel or advanced study may present themselves. This might be a good time to learn a foreign language or to take a course to brush up your skills. You may decide to buy a new car. Benefits come through visits, short trips, messages, emails, or they could come through contacts with siblings, classmates, kin, and neighbors. Some sort of positive news or announcement is likely to be part of the picture. If you're an author, you will find many opportunities and creative flow. If you're a student, school is especially favored. If you're in commerce, you are likely to discover that sales are especially strong; if you work in science, you are likely to gather important information that advances your research. These positive circumstances won't necessarily fall into your lap, and are unlikely to come all at once. You need to keep your eyes open for opportunities in these areas of life.

Mars continues to retrograde this month (all month). This retrograde period extends to January 30th, 2008. Even though the retrograde period officially lasts from November 15/07-January 30/08, the retrograde "zone" is in effect from September 16/07-April 4/08. For you, enthusiasm for intimate and sharing matters in general may wane, perhaps due to some problems or setbacks in these areas of life. Intimate matters may become more intense and complicated. Joint financial projects or initiatives may stall, or you could find that you are less confident about expressing yourself in personal ways. A lover or yourself may especially intense or obsessive. Refocus, backtracking, and review become necessary and recommended now.

Until the 14th, Venus continues to move through your privacy sector. Matters of the heart touch you deeply. You may willingly play a supportive role to a partner, offering him or her more compassion and selfless love. If a romance were to begin during this period, it would likely be a private or even secret one. What you don't know might just be helping you right now, because what's happening behind your back is moving in your favor and all will come out happily when your dreams become a reality soon enough.

Venus warms your solar first house from the 14th. The benefits of this position are the strongest from the 14-22, when Venus is directly on your Sun. You could find it hard to deny yourself anything during this cycle! This is a time when you naturally let loose your softer, receptive side. Romantic matters, as well as pleasure-seeking activities, come to the fore now. You are more likely to pay closer attention to your physical appearance and mannerisms, aiming to improve and enhance your attractiveness. Others find you agreeable and cooperative.

From the 5-26, Mercury working through your solar second house suggests that this is a strong period for analyzing your cash flow, income, and earning power. You are more practical and rational in your approach to finances now. With your conscious mind focused on money and possessions, as well as personal values, this can be a strong period for gathering new money-making ideas. Alternatively, it could be a time when you tend to fret over your finances. Conversations tend to be practical rather than frivolous now. Financial gain may come through communications.

Mercury transits your solar third house from the 26th. Mercury is right at home in the third house, and offers a natural curiosity, facility with words, and the ability to multi-task successfully. More time spent on the phone, writing emails, in the car making short frequent trips, chatting, running errands, communicating with neighbors and siblings, visiting friends and relatives, and doing paperwork is likely now. There can also be a tendency to fuss over insignificant matters now, however. Also, "information overload" is also a possibility. This may be a busy time with neighbors, classmates, siblings, and community affairs. Your interests are especially varied now, and perhaps scattered. It's an ideal time to pick up information from your environment and the people in it, as your tendency is toward a certain level of intellectual detachment just now. Your mind is often distracted, particularly when circumstances call for you to stick to routine, so this is not the best transit for focusing on one task or project. Your mind is especially inquisitive during this cycle, when learning, short trips, and other forms of communication and making connections, appeal strongly. Some are fidgety or nervous during this cycle, perhaps due to increased errand-running, phone calls, and the like. Others enjoy the challenge of tackling a variety of subjects. As well, talking, writing, and studying can be good ways to handle stress.

Mars energizes your solar eighth house all month. Note that Mars will be activating and re-activating a small area our charts until April 2008 due to its retrograde cycle. During this cycle, your energy is channeled through deep but easily aroused emotions and/or a strong sex drive. This can also express itself through an active interest in big business, finance, and investing. You tend to act on instinct now. Challenges with these areas of life are more likely while Mars is retrograde, however, all month and extending into the new year. Your focus remains in these areas of life, but caution and perhaps anxiety or confusion begin to dominate. You might feel less confident or you could simply feel more cautious now.

Highlights:

November 30-December 1 Sun squares Saturn. Pushing forward aggressively simply doesn't work now. Delays or setbacks are likely, but are reminders that sometimes we need to slow down and regroup. For you, this can be a potentially challenging time for communications (misunderstandings or frustrating news could figure) and for career matters. Increased responsibilities could feel temporarily overwhelming. Avoid confrontations with authority.

December 2-4 Venus sextiles Jupiter and Pluto; and the Sun sextiles Chiron. A sense of meaning and purposefulness imbues our relationships now. Confidence is strong. For you, partnering is especially strong and agreeable. Negotiations run very well. Money matters are also positive. You might receive a gift now. Career opportunities arise from humble confidence.

December 6-7 Mercury squares Saturn and the Sun squares Uranus. These are not ideal energies during which to push forward with new plans, simply because circumstances, or other people, are resistant and rebellious. For you, tension between professional and personal/family matters is likely to figure now. Some strain in a friendship is also possible.

December 6-7 Your Personal New Moon. A new personal cycle begins for you, and you feel fresh and re-energized. It's all about you now, so it's time to put your best foot forward. A blast of personal energy comes your way, and showing your leadership skills works for you now. You are at your most convincing, as others are accepting you at face value. Some people find that the Moon in their sign brings with it a restless, discontented, and emotional state, and that there is more on their plate than they expected or wanted. If this is the case for you, remember that these feelings are there because you need to make a change, however big or small. Use it to stimulate activity and positive change.

December 9 New Moon in Sagittarius in your solar second house affects you until January's New Moon. Heightened sensitivity to the world of the five senses, to your physical environment, and to the security you gain from the solid ground you have built for yourself is in order for this period of time. Attunement to, and appreciation of, the physical world of the senses is the focus, and this is a time to start fresh in terms of how you arrange your life in order to feel a sense of value and worthiness. Financial issues come into focus. Setting realistic financial goals, as well as formulating such things as budgets and other sensible financial planning projects, will be favored during this time. Discovering ways to increase your income is featured. It is also a wonderful time for taking moments to pleasure yourself through earthy, tactile, and comforting endeavors.

December 9-10 Monthly money and income peak. You're looking at the world in terms of value and worth now, and what you have (or don't have) is on your mind. Money issues pop up now—the discovery of a way to increase your income, an unexpected gift or reward, or a brief and tiny financial crisis that motivates you to find new ways to make money are possible.

December 11-13 Jupiter conjuncts Pluto, Venus trines Mars, the Sun and Mercury sextile Neptune, and Venus sextiles Saturn. This is a very creative combination. Determination and drive are with us, as well as the chance to relate harmoniously to others. Imagination is also at a peak. For you, opportunities in matters related to money, security, and personal possessions arise now. It's a strong period for all personal initiatives and projects--launching a project dear to your heart can figure now. It's also an excellent time for career and work matters in general.

December 16-17 Romance and pleasure are highlights right now with the Moon in your solar fifth. The Moon is in your element, and so are you! The flowing, expressive, and spontaneous energy surrounding you attracts like-minded (and hearted) people. Be sure to take time to enjoy yourself, preferably around others! Keywords: romance, creativity, spontaneity, pleasure, self-expression.

December 19-20 Mercury conjuncts Jupiter and Pluto, and the Sun conjuncts Pluto. This is a period of intense discovery. New insights into old problems or new ideas altogether are found now and are likely to be very transformational (for some even life-changing).

December 20-21 Your partnerships are highlighted right now, and it's time to compromise. Insecurities in your partnerships are brought to light now, and the best way to handle this is to understand that you need others instead of competing for the floor. Some people find this time of the lunar month an energy sapper, as they feel ignored or unnoticed. Trying to go it alone won't work just now. The spotlight is on other people for the time being, and it's best to let them shine. Concentrate on truly listening to those close to you, and on playing a supportive role. Perhaps not a time to be make a presentation or to come on strong to the world. You are feeling reflective rather than expressive.

December 23 A Full Moon occurs today in early Cancer in your solar eighth house. This Full Moon is brimming with opportunities as it occurs at the same time as a conjunction between the Sun and Jupiter. This Full Moon is all about give and take. What makes you feel comfortable and secure needs to be balanced with attention to other people's needs and comfort levels. It's a good time to settle some of your debts, financial or otherwise. You may be in a position wherein you are forced to make a financial settlement or large outlay of cash; or, you may find that you are leaned upon for support, financial or otherwise.

December 26-27 Monthly career and reputation peak. Your credibility is important at this time of the lunar month, and efforts at self-promotion might be made now. This is the time when you're noticed for what you've done or haven't done. Do your best to be in top form, make career adjustments if needed, and don't be afraid to show others exactly what you're made of. You're at your best when you are showing the world your practical, competent, and responsible side.

November 2007: Scorpio Horoscope: Love, Career, & General Trends
 

November

 

scorpio the scorpionOverview.

The Sun illuminates your first house all month, bringing issues surrounding your personal identity, appearance, outward behavior, and self-expression to the forefront. This marks the height of your physical solar cycle, and you are in the position to make an impression on others, and to assert your personal influence beyond its normal boundaries. Spontaneity of expression is what this transit is about. You are ready to put your past behind you and to start a new personal cycle. You have presence and you project confidence. Increased energy and a renewed feeling of confidence is with you now, so take advantage. It's a great month to do something entirely new and pioneering—to go solo in some area of your life. This particular season of the year smiles on your personal endeavors. This is a time when you more easily get in touch with a true sense of your identity and purpose. The most enterprising side of your nature pushes up and out, and it's time to seize opportunities. Problems in your life may be overcome by bravery, self-assertion, and directness. There's nothing wrong with a bit of self-centeredness during this cycle, but avoid taking it too far. It's not the best time for team work and other cooperative endeavors. The spotlight is on you and your ability to lead, so make it a good one! Take steps to improve how you come across to others. It's time to carve your own path in life.

A feeling that you have been missing important information, or that secrets have been kept from you, lifts this month and you are more confident about your perceptions and hunches. Love this month is privately delicious. Romantic secrets and sacrifices keep you feeling vital and irreplaceable. Career opportunities continue to seek you out. Friends are more demanding of your time, but increased social responsibilities make you feel needed! From the 15th, avoid making travel or educational plans--try to wrap these matters up in the first two weeks of November so as to avoid delays.

Mercury ends its retrograde period that occurred from October 11-November 1, picking up speed and "revisiting" some of the aspects it made to planets before and during the retrograde period. This gives us all a chance to get projects and communications back on track.

Mars, however, turns retrograde this month, on November 15th. This retrograde period extends to January 30th, 2008. Even though the retrograde period officially lasts from November 15/07-January 30/08, the retrograde "zone" is in effect from September 16/07-April 4/08. For you, enthusiasm for higher education, travel, your personal philosophy, or adventure in general may wane, perhaps due to some problems or setbacks in these areas of life. Some projects may stall, or you could find that you are less confident about expressing yourself in adventurous ways. Your outlook on life in terms of the "bigger picture" could be more cautious, and you might find that you temporarily have less faith. Refocus, backtracking, and review become necessary and recommended now.

Your rulers, Pluto and Mars, form stimulating connections to Venus, the Sun, and Mercury this month on the 2-3, 8-9, 22, and 27, representing opportunity periods for you. The 2-3 and 22 are all excellent days for your powers of attraction. Venus receives and collects, and with your rulers in harmonious contact with Venus on these dates, it's a good time to charm, soothe, and receive. These dates are also strong for close partnerships, whether it's to attract one or to enhance an existing relationship. The 8-9 is strong for communicating your ideas and for hearing good news as well. On the 27th, career matters are swimming and earning admiration and respect comes easily. Red flag periods--times when you are not received as well as you would like, or are prone to impulsive, hasty, or ill-timed behavior--occur on the 4-6, 19-20, and 28, when you may feel neglected, slighted, or unappreciated. On the 4-6, career and partnering matters may be frustrating. In general, ego bruising or feeling slighted could figure now, and negotiations don't run especially well. The 19-20 could be quite stressful although very active. Others are cantankerous and you could be quite moody and impulsive. The 28th could be tense on a communications level. Misrepresentation is possible.

Opportunity periods for personal finances occur on the 19th. Speculation and new financial initiatives are best avoided on the 16-17, when financial decision-making is unclear.

As far as romantic and creative matters are concerned, opportunities to enhance or attract romance occur on the 4, 19, 25-26, and 29. These are power days for personal magnetism, charisma, and creativity. Issues that could be annoying or disconcerting concerning romantic matters are more likely to occur on the 11-12, 16, and 24. These would be less than ideal days to go on a first date, for example. With regard to your serious partnerships, long-term relationships tend to thrive on the 2, 18, and 25-27. Use these days for strengthening your connection or attracting a serious partnership. Tensions in close partnerships are more likely on the 4-6, 12, 19-20, and 29.

Better times to schedule job interviews or health appointments, and for success and happiness on the job, occur on the 2-4 and 27. Red flag periods for these matters occur on the 19-20 and 28, when you should probably avoid scheduling health appointments or job interviews if feasible. Matters related to your career and reputation tend to thrive on the 4, 7, 27, and 29. Challenges with these matters are more likely to occur on the 3, 5, 11, 19-21, and 30 when others, especially authority figures and the public, may not see you in the most favorable light!

Venus continues to transit your solar eleventh house until the 18th, where she enlivens your friendships and group associations with charm and grace. You are likely to enjoy a strong feeling of happiness and solidarity in friendship, or with groups of like-minded individuals. You are more peace-loving than usual and slightly detached on a personal level. If a romance were to occur during this time frame, it would be characterized by a strong feeling of camaraderie, but it could also be rather impersonal and perhaps lacking in depth and intimacy.

Venus warms your solar twelfth house from the 18th. Venus is spending some time in "hibernation" in your privacy sector. Now, this doesn't necessarily mean that your love life is stagnant, but that your affection is expressed behind closed doors. Attraction to secrets and whispers characterize this period, although for some, it can also be a time of endings, relationship concerns, and wistfulness. Personal and social contacts may be secretive, and there can be secret love affairs, or at least very private love feelings and longings. Shyness can lead to some loneliness or romantic frustration. However, this can also be a deliciously private and intimate time.

Mercury continues to transit your solar twelfth house until the 18th. Your mind is focused on private matters and past issues. You're searching behind the curtain, and examining the past for answers. This is a good time for research, quiet contemplation, and meditation; but do avoid being dragged down by issues that have outgrown their worth and purpose. Examining the past in order to improve the future is certainly worthwhile, as long as you don't waste your energy on guilt.

Mercury transits your solar first house from the 18th. This is a period in which you are most inclined to speak up about matters that you previously were only mulling over. Your disposition is more intellectual than usual now, and self-expression comes easy. You are sharper than usual--more observant, and more inclined to "live in the head". Relationships with siblings, neighbors, classmates, and casual friends may become more prominent in your life now. It is likely that you will initiate discussions during this period, evaluate your appearance and the impact you have on those around you, and make contact with others rather than stay chained to any one place or activity. This is the time to be direct and to communicate your needs and interests. You are more inclined to talk about yourself and your personal past now. This may also be a restless time when it is difficult to turn the thinking process off when it would be better to relax! It is an especially fruitful time for any endeavor that requires dealing with words, ideas, and facts and figures. Your demeanor is more youthful, perhaps mischievous, lighthearted, and non-threatening so that others may be more inclined to turn to you for advice or pleasant conversation. Using the power of words to attract what you want or to further your interests works best for you now.

Mars continues to energize your solar ninth house all month. Note that Mars will be activating and re-activating a small area our charts until April 2008 due to its retrograde cycle. It's a fabulous time for promoting your ideas and beliefs, although coming on too strong could work against you. If you can't travel, you'll feel like doing so, or at least travel in your mind, simply because you have a great urge to expand your horizons in some manner. Energies thrown toward recreation, travel, or just cooking up great new ideas are well spent and serve to refresh and renew your vitality. Creative projects can flourish with enlarged focus and redoubled efforts that somehow don't tire you out. Time flies when you're having fun and leaves you with more vigor than when you began. Big, ambitious, adventurous ideas can come to you in a rush during this cycle, propelled by the urge to do something you've never done before. Challenges with these areas of life are more likely while Mars is retrograde, however, beginning November 15th and extending into the new year. Your focus remains in this area of life, but caution and perhaps anxiety or confusion begin to dominate. You might feel less confident or you could simply feel more cautious now.

Highlights:

October 31-November 2 Mercury stations and turns direct on November 1st. Holding off on important discussions, interviews, or contracts is probably wise right now, as thinking is foggy and misunderstandings are likely. As Mercury moves forward and regains speed over the next couple of weeks, we can more easily get projects off the ground.

November 2-3 Monthly career and reputation peak. Your credibility is important at this time of the lunar month, and efforts at self-promotion might be made now. This is the time when you're noticed for what you've done or haven't done. Do your best to be in top form, make career adjustments if needed, and don't be afraid to show others exactly what you're made of. You're at your best when you are showing the world your practical, competent, and responsible side.

November 3-6 Challenges and gains occur in the areas of personal initiatives, career, and professional activities for you now with the Sun and Venus in hard aspect to Chiron and Pluto and the Sun in flowing aspect to Mars. Problems encountered now can lead to greater insight and better conditions, however.

November 9 New Moon in Scorpio in your solar first house affects you until December's New Moon. This New Moon placement is a powerful one—it's a time to reinvent yourself in some personal way, such as with a new look or manner of expressing and presenting yourself. This is a personally busy time of year, when you feel energetic and enthusiastic. Think about how you present yourself to others, focus on changing personal habits in such a way as to improve your confidence in yourself, and concentrate on putting your best foot forward, as this is a time when you will get noticed and make a personal impression on others. However, factor in the importance of authenticity in your presentation of yourself. You do not have to, of course, reveal all of yourself to others, but the sign of Aries associated with the first house reminds us of the importance of acting on our impulses and believing in ourselves. This is a time when you can be brave and enjoy new experiences.

November 9-10 Your Personal New Moon. A new personal cycle begins for you, and you feel fresh and re-energized. It's all about you now, so it's time to put your best foot forward. A blast of personal energy comes your way, and showing your leadership skills works for you now. You are at your most convincing, as others are accepting you at face value. Some people find that the Moon in their sign brings with it a restless, discontented, and emotional state, and that there is more on their plate than they expected or wanted. If this is the case for you, remember that these feelings are there because you need to make a change, however big or small. Use it to stimulate activity and positive change.

November 11-12 Matters previously hidden may come to light now, and disappointments are possible, with Neptune in hard aspect to the Sun and Venus. Keep it simple. Avoid jumping to conclusions, and put off (if you can) major new initiatives for a more auspicious date. We are not seeing things clearly now. For you, challenges and increased activity in a romance, with your children if applicable, or concerning creative and recreational endeavors occur now. Deceptions or self-deceptions in a partnership or on the job can come to light now.

November 12-13 Monthly money and income peak. You're looking at the world in terms of value and worth now, and what you have (or don't have) is on your mind. Money issues pop up now—the discovery of a way to increase your income, an unexpected gift or reward, or a brief and tiny financial crisis that motivates you to find new ways to make money are possible.

November 14-16 Mars is stationary retrograde. See above Monthly Overview for details.

November 19-20 Romance and pleasure are highlights right now with the Moon in your solar fifth. The Moon is in your element, and so are you! The flowing, expressive, and spontaneous energy surrounding you attracts like-minded (and hearted) people. Be sure to take time to enjoy yourself, preferably around others! Keywords: romance, creativity, spontaneity, pleasure, self-expression.

November 23-24 Your partnerships are highlighted right now, and it's time to compromise. Insecurities in your partnerships are brought to light now, and the best way to handle this is to understand that you need others instead of competing for the floor. Some people find this time of the lunar month an energy sapper, as they feel ignored or unnoticed. Trying to go it alone won't work just now. The spotlight is on other people for the time being, and it's best to let them shine. Concentrate on truly listening to those close to you, and on playing a supportive role. Perhaps not a time to be make a presentation or to come on strong to the world. You are feeling reflective rather than expressive.

November 24 A Full Moon occurs today in early Gemini in your solar seventh house. The New Moon was all about you. Now it's time to strike a balance with an "other". The seventh house represents an important one-to-one relationship--a marriage partner, significant other, business partner, or an adversary. It's time to strike a balance between your own needs and those of another. It's time to compromise and negotiate. Partnership "tests" are possible now, but so is a chance to truly connect to a special someone in your life.

November 25-26 Venus trines Neptune. This is a strong period for compassionate understanding and generosity of spirit--when we are more able to rise above insecurities and selfishness in order to embrace others and life more peacefully. It can also be a romantic and creative period. For you, this can be a highly romantic time for a partnership, and a strong period for negotiating in general. Uncovering helpful information that was previously hidden or finding a lost item can also figure now. Romantic expression is strong now. Singles shouldn't hide away.

November 29-30 Monthly career and reputation peak. Your credibility is important at this time of the lunar month, and efforts at self-promotion might be made now. This is the time when you're noticed for what you've done or haven't done. Do your best to be in top form, make career adjustments if needed, and don't be afraid to show others exactly what you're made of. You're at your best when you are showing the world your practical, competent, and responsible side.

November 30-December 1 Sun squares Saturn. Pushing forward aggressively simply doesn't work now. Delays or setbacks are likely, but are reminders that sometimes we need to slow down and regroup. For you, this can be a potentially challenging time for communications (misunderstandings or frustrating news could figure) and for career matters. Increased responsibilities could feel temporarily overwhelming. Avoid confrontations with authority.

Scorpio (Born November 3 to 12) and Scorpio Ascendant from 10 to 20 degrees Scorpio:

October 2007: Scorpio Horoscope: Love, Career, & General Trends
 

October

 

scorpio the scorpionOverview.

All month, the Sun travels through your twelfth house, marking a time of retreat and regeneration. Think about the attachments you have--to things, people, and routines--and consider which ones are dragging you down. This is a time when competitive energies and the ego are on a bit of a break. It's not the time to push ahead with brand new projects. Rather, it's a time of reflection, dreaming, and recharging your batteries. Situations that have naturally outgrown their usefulness in your life can now be put behind you. Endings of natural cycles may be part of the picture at this time of year. Your energy is largely applied to personal and private affairs now. Your disposition is introspective. Rest and reflect, and prepare for a more outgoing cycle when the Sun moves into your first house.

You enjoy a special fondness for your friends this month, as well as for anything new and unusual. Nevertheless, privacy and down time will be needed in order to regroup. Wrapping up projects and efforts that have run their natural course is in order. Harmony in love is most explicit on the 2-4th. You are turned to as an authority and looked upon favorably by superiors on the 19-20th. A financial deal regarding house and property could come through. A partner has an important declaration, or requires special attention, around the 26th.

Mercury retrogrades from October 11-November 1. All Mercury retrograde cycles particularly affect you in terms of communications with friends or groups, as well as intimate communications and shared financial resources, because Mercury rules these areas of your life. It would be wise to be especially clear when it comes to financial transactions and personal communications with friends, or, better yet, take this time to re-budget or rethink your plans instead of taking premature action. Group meetings may be postponed or cancelled, and friends may seem distant or confused. This Mercury Retrograde cycle affects your first house of personal appearance and mannerisms and your twelfth house of privacy and all that lies below the surface of things. For the time being, you may not feel that your intuition is serving you well. Perhaps you're picking up the wrong cues or reading too much into situations, particularly with regards to finances and with friends and groups. Be as non-judgmental as you can, but do keep an eye out for deceptiveness and falseness in others. Mercury is retrograde in your sign for part of the cycle. Others might misunderstand what you have to say, and misread your body language as well. Don't worry too much if others aren't quite "getting" you for the time being. Things will change once Mercury turns direct, so you might decide to try to keep status quo for the time being.

Your rulers, Pluto and Mars, form stimulating connections to Venus, Mercury, and the Sun this month on the 2-4, 15-17, 19-20, and 26-27, representing opportunity periods for you. A strong opportunity for attraction, negotiation, and partnering occurs on the 2-4. On the 15-17, your social skills are top notch as well. Finances thrive and partnerships flourish. The 19-20 is strong for earning respect and reward. Career matters are also strong. Good news arrives on the 26-27. Red flag periods--times when you are not received as well as you would like, or are prone to impulsive, hasty, or ill-timed behavior--occur on the 9th, when you may feel neglected, slighted, or unappreciated. Conflict with a child or lover may be part of the picture.

Opportunity periods for personal finances occur on the 8 and 30-31. Speculation and new financial initiatives are best avoided on the 9-10, 21, and 26-29, when financial decision-making is unclear.

As far as romantic and creative matters are concerned, opportunities to enhance or attract romance occur on the 12-13 and 25-28. These are power days for personal magnetism, charisma, and creativity. Issues that could be annoying or disconcerting concerning romantic matters are more likely to occur on the 7-10. These would be less than ideal days to go on a first date, for example. With regard to your serious partnerships, long-term relationships tend to thrive on the 2-4 and 13-17. Use these days for strengthening your connection or attracting a serious partnership. Tensions in close partnerships are more likely on the 20, 24-25, and 28-29.

Better times to schedule job interviews or health appointments, and for success and happiness on the job, occur on the 6-7 and 15-17. Red flag periods for these matters occur on the 8-9, when you should probably avoid scheduling health appointments or job interviews if feasible. Matters related to your career and reputation tend to thrive on the 3-4, 7-8, 12, 19-20, and 29-30. Challenges with these matters are more likely to occur on the 13, 23-24, and 26-27, when others, especially authority figures and the public, may not see you in the most favorable light!

Venus continues to move through your solar tenth house until the 19th. You are more socially ambitious than usual during this cycle. Attention is drawn to your professional manner or your personal relationships become more public. More opportunities to socialize and network could present themselves now, or circumstances are such that you need to draw upon your diplomacy skills in order to advance.

Venus transits your solar eleventh house from the 19th forward. Forming harmonious, warm social friendships, possibly related to group activities within a club, can figure now. You may meet someone through such group activities; consequently, your interests will be shared. Whether or not you do, the bottom line is that sharing interests with someone is what makes you happy during this cycle. Venus here enlivens your friendships and group associations with charm and grace. You are more peace-loving than usual and slightly detached on a personal level. If a romance were to begin during this time frame, it would be characterized by a strong feeling of camaraderie, but it could also be rather impersonal and perhaps lacking in depth and intimacy.

Mercury continues to transit your solar twelfth house. This is a cycle in which your mind is focused on private matters and past issues. You're searching behind the curtain, and examining the past for answers. This is a good time for research, quiet contemplation, and meditation; but do avoid being dragged down by issues that have outgrown their worth and purpose. Examining the past in order to improve the future is certainly worthwhile, as long as you don't waste your energy on guilt. Note that from the 11th to November 1st, Mercury is retrograde and can stir up some challenges with these matters.

Mars continues to activate your solar eighth house until the 26th. During this cycle, your energy is channeled through deep but easily aroused emotions and/or a strong sex-drive. This can also express itself through an active interest in big business, finance, and investing. You tend to act on instinct now.

Highlights:

October 2-4 Operative energies include the Sun trine Chiron and Venus trine Pluto. This is a strong period for career and reputation matters, as well as for close personal relationships. It's a time when you and a partner blend well, or when you more readily attract a close partner.

October 5-6 Monthly career and reputation peak. Your credibility is important at this time of the lunar month, and efforts at self-promotion might be made now. This is the time when you're noticed for what you've done or haven't done. Do your best to be in top form, make career adjustments if needed, and don't be afraid to show others exactly what you're made of. You're at your best when you are showing the world your practical, competent, and responsible side.

October 10-12 Mercury is stationary retrograde now, and will remain retrograde until November 1st--a cycle when rethinking matters is the name of the game. When Mercury is stationary, as it is now, it's especially important to prepare for possible breakdowns in communication. Back up your computer, double-check your paperwork, and remember that you may not have all the necessary information to make big decisions for the time being. Avoid signing contracts or deals, as they may not work out as you expected, or they might need revision later.

October 11 New Moon in Libra in your solar twelfth house affects you until November's New Moon. This is a period of review, letting go, and recharging one's spiritual and, in effect, physical "batteries". Focus, now, is on fulfillment through service, empathy, and awareness of other's needs; but it can also be a time of withdrawal and some sort of retreat in a social sense, depending on your personal and natural predisposition. Some kind of soul-searching is in order, and the urge to find some level of emotional peace of mind will be apparent. This is a more sensitive position of the New Moon, and it is best to find some sort of peace for the soul in preparation for the New Moon in the first house—a period that is more active and busy than this one. 

October 13-14 Your Personal New Moon. A new personal cycle begins for you, and you feel fresh and re-energized. It's all about you now, so it's time to put your best foot forward. A blast of personal energy comes your way, and showing your leadership skills works for you now. You are at your most convincing, as others are accepting you at face value. Some people find that the Moon in their sign brings with it a restless, discontented, and emotional state, and that there is more on their plate than they expected or wanted. If this is the case for you, remember that these feelings are there because you need to make a change, however big or small. Use it to stimulate activity and positive change.

October 15-16 Monthly money and income peak. You're looking at the world in terms of value and worth now, and what you have (or don't have) is on your mind. Money issues pop up now—the discovery of a way to increase your income, an unexpected gift or reward, or a brief and tiny financial crisis that motivates you to find new ways to make money are possible.

October 18-20 Mercury trine Mars and sextile Saturn; the Sun sextile Pluto. This is a strong period for deliberate action, productivity, and sound thinking. With Mercury retrograde, reviewing problems from the past is advised rather than initiating new projects. For you, this is a strong period for personal influence, reward, and recognition. Career, work, and reputation matters thrive, and solid progress can be made in work projects.

October 22-23 Romance and pleasure are highlights right now with the Moon in your solar fifth. The Moon is in your element, and so are you! The flowing, expressive, and spontaneous energy surrounding you attracts like-minded (and hearted) people. Be sure to take time to enjoy yourself, preferably around others! Keywords: romance, creativity, spontaneity, pleasure, self-expression.

October 23-25 Strong Uranian energy is with us now with Mercury, the Sun, and Venus in hard aspect to Uranus. We should "expect the unexpected"--little will go as planned. We are likely to rebel against rules, authority, and anything that fences us in. Thinking outside of the box works. For you, frustrating domestic matters could figure. As well, a partner or partnership might temporarily feel unstable. Even career matters are on the chaotic side. Avoid stressing yourself out by expecting changes to plans.

October 26 A Full Moon occurs today in early Taurus in your solar sixth house. Avoid blaming others for your own state of discontent. You can use this surge of emotional energy to make positive changes to your routines. Do something to improve your work conditions if they are annoying you--even if it's a small act of kindness with a co-worker or bringing in something to brighten up your desk or office. Get going on your exercise or nutrition program that you've been toying with in your mind. This may also be a time when a work project comes to fruition or completion.

October 26-27 Your partnerships are highlighted right now, and it's time to compromise. Insecurities in your partnerships are brought to light now, and the best way to handle this is to understand that you need others instead of competing for the floor. Some people find this time of the lunar month an energy sapper, as they feel ignored or unnoticed. Trying to go it alone won't work just now. The spotlight is on other people for the time being, and it's best to let them shine. Concentrate on truly listening to those close to you, and on playing a supportive role. Perhaps not a time to be make a presentation or to come on strong to the world. You are feeling reflective rather than expressive.

October 29-30 Matters pertaining to personal finances and possessions thrive for you now. Circumstances conspire to put you in the lead. Productivity in your career is also featured.

September 2007: Scorpio Horoscope: Love, Career, & General Trends
 

September

 

scorpio the scorpionOverview.

All month, the Sun illuminates your sector of friends, groups, and dreams coming true. It's a sociable sector of your chart, and that's exactly how you are feeling--happy, lighthearted, and social. Group affiliations capture your attention. Connections can be made now and networking pays off. Being part of a community or circle of friends and building your social network is important to you at this time. This is a rather happy, goal-oriented cycle. A lively agenda is promised, you're attracting quite a bit of interest, and your energy for making contact with others is high. A stronger sense of community is with you during this cycle. Relationships take on a fun, if impersonal, tone now. Activities with children increase. You are more stimulated by all that is unconventional during this cycle, and your ideas are original and progressive now. This is a time to follow your dreams and ideals, and to plant a seed in the form of a wish for the future.

This month, a partner’s attitude and affairs begin to move forward, serving to ease challenges and to bridge gaps between you and a special someone. Singles feel more confident. Your personal projects begin to move forward and a sense of relief contributes to a hopeful mood. You are picking up much important information intuitively this month, so keep an “idea“ journal. Career pressures are easing, as you are entering a new long-term trend in which you are less concerned about public image and more interested in long-term happiness goals.

Venus turns direct on the 8th, and Venus-ruled areas of life begin to move forward. Love, appreciation, and the need for companionship are expressed more naturally and readily from this point forward. Problems with close partners begin to resolve.

A Solar Eclipse in Virgo occurs on September 11th. The effects of eclipses stay with us for as long as six months, and they reveal main areas of focus for this half-year period. A general rule of thumb regarding eclipses is to avoid major decision-making in the week before an eclipse. This is because new information that could change our perspective often is revealed in the week after the eclipse. Therefore, major decision-making is best avoided from September 4th to 11th. This Solar Eclipse marks a new beginning for you. Flaws in a system of doing things are revealed and it's time to start fresh. This eclipse occurs in your solar eleventh, suggesting that a new approach to friendships or new friendships altogether, a new path towards happiness and fulfillment, new associations or affiliations, or plenty of social activity are in store for you.

Your rulers, Mars and Pluto, form stimulating connections to Venus, Neptune, and Mercury this month on the 4, 7-9, 23-24, and 26-27, representing opportunity periods for you. The 4th is strong for negotiations and partnering, as well as dealing with private matters or issues from the past. On the 7-9, your intuition is heightened. Romance and creativity also thrive. On the 23-24 and 26-27, you may be asked for advice, communications flow smoothly, you are able to rationalize and solve problems, and financial matters are strong. Red flag periods--times when you are not received as well as you would like, or are prone to impulsive, hasty, or ill-timed behavior--are more prevalent this month and occur on the 2-3, 17-19 (especially), and 20-22, when you may feel neglected, slighted, or unappreciated. Power struggles, challenges with work and reputation matters, as well as a feeling of being slighted are themes on the 17-19 and 20-22.

Opportunity periods for personal finances occur on the 6-8 and 12-13. Speculation and new financial initiatives are best avoided on the 3-4 and 25-26, when financial decision-making is unclear.

As far as romantic and creative matters are concerned, opportunities to enhance or attract romance occur on the 7-10 (especially) and 18-19. These are power days for personal magnetism, charisma, and creativity. Issues that could be annoying or disconcerting concerning romantic matters are more likely to occur on the 3-4, 12-13, 20-22, and 27-28. These would be less than ideal days on which to have a first date, for example. With regard to your serious partnerships, long-term relationships tend to thrive on the 1-4 and 17-18. Use these days for strengthening your connection or attracting a serious partnership. Tensions in close partnerships are more likely on the 6, 10, and 19-22.

Better times to schedule job interviews or health appointments, and for success and happiness on the job, occur on the 4, 7-10, and 25-27. Red flag periods for these matters occur on the 2-3, 15-18, and 19-21, when you should probably avoid scheduling health appointments or job interviews if feasible. Matters related to your career and reputation tend to thrive on the 1-2. Challenges with these matters are more likely to occur on the 3-4, 9-10, 12-13, 16-19, and 27-28, when others may not see you in the best light!

Venus continues to transit your solar tenth house all month. Venus is charming, friendly, and affectionate, and her presence in your career and reputation sector brings social opportunities and charm to your career. You are coming across well at work now, and romantic opportunities, or simply more chances to socialize and network, are likely.

Mercury continues to transit your solar eleventh house until the 12th. Your mind is bright, alert, and active during this cycle, and you have the ability to come up with unusual and inventive ideas. Sharing your thoughts with others is a prime interest. Others tend to particularly enjoy your conversations during this transit--you are willing to listen as well as add your own thoughts. As well, your ability to grasp unusual subject matter and to intuitively understand what others are trying to say win you some brownie points! You could also do a lot of thinking and musing about your own happiness and long-term goals.

Mercury transits your privacy sector from the 12th. Your mind is focused on private matters and past issues during this cycle. This is a time when you are least likely to speak out of turn or to express yourself freely. You're searching behind the curtain, and examining the past for answers. This is a good time for research, quiet contemplation, and meditation; but do avoid being dragged down by issues that have outgrown their worth and purpose. Examining the past in order to improve the future is certainly worthwhile, as long as you don't waste your energy on guilt. Creative endeavors could prosper now, particularly those that draw upon the emotions or that require creative visualization skills, such as poetry, art, acting, and other such activities. You are likely to require a certain amount of solitude in order to get your thoughts together or to be mentally productive. You are less likely to chat indiscriminately during this transit, and tend to be a little secretive or tight-lipped for the time being. This may be important, in fact, because this position is sometimes associated with the uncovering of secrets, so discretion may be in order.

Mars continues to transit your solar eighth house all month. During this cycle, your energy is channeled through deep but easily aroused emotions and/or a strong sex-drive. This can also express itself through an active interest in big business, finance, and investing. You tend to act on instinct now. You experience every situation intensely and deeply during this cycle, even though your outward actions do not necessarily reveal this fact. You could find yourself attracted to mysterious or even dangerous situations. Sometimes this transit correlates with disputes over money. This is a time when your best course of action is to recognize that you need, or rely on, others for support. Circumstances in life are likely to occur that require you to take the lead or to apply personal action in connection with joint finances.

Highlights:

September 2-3 Your partnerships are highlighted right now, and it's time to compromise. Insecurities in your partnerships are brought to light now, and the best way to handle this is to understand that you need others instead of competing for the floor. Some people find this time of the lunar month an energy sapper, as they feel ignored or unnoticed. Trying to go it alone won't work just now. The spotlight is on other people for the time being, and it's best to let them shine. Concentrate on truly listening to those close to you, and on playing a supportive role. Perhaps not a time to be make a presentation or to come on strong to the world. You are feeling reflective rather than expressive.

September 7-8 Venus and Pluto turn direct after retrograde periods. These influences represent matters moving forward after a period of introspection and/or lag. For you, this is especially significant because Pluto is your ruler and Venus rules your partnerships. Your personal initiatives and close personal relationships turn around after a period of review or lag. Others begin to understand you more, and the emotional distance that you have been feeling in the past weeks begins to lift.

September 8-9 Monthly career and reputation peak. Your credibility is important at this time of the lunar month, and efforts at self-promotion might be made now. This is the time when you're noticed for what you've done or haven't done. Do your best to be in top form, make career adjustments if needed, and don't be afraid to show others exactly what you're made of. You're at your best when you are showing the world your practical, competent, and responsible side.

September 11 New Moon Solar Eclipse in Virgo in your solar eleventh house affects you now and for months to come. Unexpected events necessitate the need for new beginnings. The eleventh house is a sector associated with networking, making contact, group activities, and income earned from business. With the New Moon here, focus is on making contacts and reaching out to others in both a social and professional sense. It's a time to turn inner restlessness into fruitful contact with others. Heightened awareness of your position in life within the context of the group, rather than through self-centered focus, is probable with this position of the New Moon, as well as a need for social security. Goals that involve networking, making connections with others, joining or strengthening ties in a group project/activity, and nurturing good will are the focus this month.

September 15-16 Your Personal New Moon. A new personal cycle begins for you, and you feel fresh and re-energized. It's all about you now, so it's time to put your best foot forward. A blast of personal energy comes your way, and showing your leadership skills works for you now. You are at your most convincing, as others are accepting you at face value. Some people find that the Moon in their sign brings with it a restless, discontented, and emotional state, and that there is more on their plate than they expected or wanted. If this is the case for you, remember that these feelings are there because you need to make a change, however big or small. Use it to stimulate activity and positive change.

September 18-19 Monthly money and income peak. You're looking at the world in terms of value and worth now, and what you have (or don't have) is on your mind. Money issues pop up now—the discovery of a way to increase your income, an unexpected gift or reward, or a brief and tiny financial crisis that motivates you to find new ways to make money are possible.

September 19-21 Mars opposes Pluto, Venus opposes Neptune, and the Sun is challenged by both Pluto and Chiron. Battles begun now are lose-lose situations. Avoid beating a dead horse and attempting to force matters that should naturally take time to unfold. Circumstances now can push us to discover our own power--power that comes from a strong sense of self rather than superficial energy derived from manipulating people into doing what we want them to do. We are not seeing our finances or love relationships clearly just now. For you, impatience is possible, but so is high energy and drive. While there can be tensions regarding your career and reputation, you are also especially pioneering and unwilling to take the blame for others. Staying active helps. A partner could be distant or confusing right now. Wait it out.

September 24-26 Mercury sextile Pluto and trine Mars. This is a powerful period for presenting your ideas or stating your case. It's also strong for finances, health, and work projects.

September 25-26 Romance and pleasure are highlights right now with the Moon in your solar fifth. The Moon is in your element, and so are you! The flowing, expressive, and spontaneous energy surrounding you attracts like-minded (and hearted) people. Be sure to take time to enjoy yourself, preferably around others! Keywords: romance, creativity, spontaneity, pleasure, self-expression.

September 26 A Full Moon occurs today in early Aries in your solar fifth house. You want to have fun, and the demands of your larger goals in life may have been eclipsing your pleasure-seeking activities. It can be hard to find time for everything you want to do, but without creative self-expression (be it romantic or playful), you simply won't feel complete. It's time to do something self-expressive, fun, and creative. You may be required to complete a creative project at this time. You could feel an overwhelming need to pour your heart out to a lover, or a romantic affair reaches some sort of epiphany. There could be a whirlwind of activity surrounding your child or children.

September 29-30 Your partnerships are highlighted right now, and it's time to compromise. Insecurities in your partnerships are brought to light now, and the best way to handle this is to understand that you need others instead of competing for the floor. Some people find this time of the lunar month an energy sapper, as they feel ignored or unnoticed. Trying to go it alone won't work just now. The spotlight is on other people for the time being, and it's best to let them shine. Concentrate on truly listening to those close to you, and on playing a supportive role. Perhaps not a time to be make a presentation or to come on strong to the world. You are feeling reflective rather than expressive.

Scorpio (Born November 3 to 12) and Scorpio Ascendant from 10 to 20 degrees Scorpio:

August 2007: Scorpio Horoscope: Love, Career, & General Trends
 

August

 

scorpio the scorpionOverview.

All month, the Sun illuminates your career and reputation sector. More than any other time of the year, your focus is drawn to your "place" or standing in the outer world, and your reputation. This is the time when you are more interested in, and focused on, accomplishing something important. Your competency is something that you are especially sensitive to during this cycle. You want to shine. Your vision is practical right now, and you want to see tangible results for your efforts. More contact with authority figures is likely during this period. Recognition is likely to come your way whether you ask for it or not, and the responsibility that comes right along with it! Do what you feel is right, keeping in mind that you are at your most visible during this period in the year.

Your yearly career peak occurs in August, dear Scorpio, and you can expect new or increased responsibilities. Success is more important to you than usual, and you take special pride in what you do as well as how you do it. Finances are strong, and financial deals and matters move forward after a slump. Tests to your partnerships are likely, and you could find a partner is distant or hard to reach. Give others breathing room. A creative project bears fruit, or a romance heats up, in the last few days of the month.

Venus continues to retrograde all month and until September 8th. For the time being, avoid making critical decisions about Venus-ruled areas of life, including love and social relationships, entertainment, beauty, and finances. Read more about Venus Retrograde here.

This month, Leo and Sagittarius houses are emphasized. The Sun, Mercury, and Venus all align with Saturn and trine Pluto at various points in the month. As well, Jupiter in Sagittarius turns direct on the 6th. This affects your tenth and second houses. Emphasis is on tangible and practical matters, including personal finances and career--the serious elements of these matters. It's time to make a plan to improve these areas of your life. It may feel like work, but accepting responsibility and the determination to "clean up" your life in these areas will bring rewards. Personal finances can be fortified this month as well. You might discover a stronger connection to your work, possessions, and self-worth, and more purposefulness in your life as a result.

A Lunar Eclipse occurs on August 28th in the early degrees of Pisces. The "crisis" that eclipses such as this one tend to elicit is a crisis of lack--a time when we suddenly realize a great need or want. This eclipse can trigger awareness of need in an area of our lives, such as our relationship to work, to our health and bodies, and so forth. This is a time when matters come to light--things that have been brewing under the surface. With the Virgo-Pisces service axis involved, this Lunar Eclipse presses us to look more closely at our needs, lacks, and wants in our lives. We are pushed to find a balance between day-to-day functions and routines, physical health, and the need for order (Virgo) and vision, spiritual health, disorder, and the infinite (Pisces). Virgo rules the tools and techniques that we use to deal with day-to-day life, while Pisces rules the tools that we use to deal with our spiritual selves. Epiphanies are likely at this time as we become acutely aware of our lack. This understanding can propel us into positive action. Full Moons and Lunar Eclipses bring issues in our lives to fulfillment. Our emotions are heightened, and there is often some sort of drama involved with the house, sign, and any contacted planets activated by the Full Moon. Occurring in your solar fifth house, a romantic affair may be tested. If love is true, there's nothing to fear. The demands of your larger goals in life may have been eclipsing your pleasure-seeking activities. Also possible, your children may be going through their own changes and "stages", and need more attention now.

Your rulers, Pluto and Mars, form stimulating connections to Saturn, Venus, Mercury, the Sun, and Chiron this month, on the 5-6, 14-17, 19-20, and 26-27, representing opportunity periods for you. On the 5-6, serious matters figure. It is necessary now to assume more responsibility in certain areas of your life. Others may turn to you for strength. You are coming across as particularly respectable now. Communications figure strongly, and a "clean up" is required. On the 14-17, social matters fare especially well. Love may come your way, but likely someone from your past will figure. This is a good time to strengthen an existing partnership, and for shared finances. On the 19-20, career matters are strong and your personal influence increases. On the 26-27, recognition for your more unique qualities comes naturally without even trying. Humble confidence shines now. Red flag periods--times when you are not received as well as you would like, or are prone to impulsive, hasty, or ill-timed behavior--occur on the 1-4, 7, and 25, when you may feel neglected, slighted, or unappreciated.

Opportunity periods for personal finances occur on the 2 and 9. Speculation and new financial initiatives are best avoided on the 1 and 22-24, when financial decision-making is unclear. Money matters move forward this month -- matters that were previously "stuck" are now released.

As far as romantic and creative matters are concerned, opportunities to enhance or attract romance occur on the 2 and 9. These are power days for personal magnetism, charisma, and creativity. Issues that could be annoying or disconcerting concerning romantic matters are more likely to occur on the 13-14, 23-25, and 30. These would be less than ideal days to go on a first date, for example. With regard to your serious partnerships, long-term relationships tend to thrive on the 12-18 and 28. Use these days for strengthening your connection or attracting a serious partnership. Tensions in close partnerships are more likely on the 7-8 and 24-27. With your partnership ruler retrograde all month, you may be dealing with a distant partner who is re-evaluating your partnership. Give him or her space and don't push.

Better times to schedule job interviews or health appointments, and for success and happiness on the job, occur on the 3 and 26-27. Red flag periods for these matters occur on the 1-2, 7-8, 22-24, and 25, when you should probably avoid scheduling health appointments or job interviews if feasible. Matters related to your career and reputation tend to thrive on the 1-2 and 15-22. Challenges with these matters are more likely to occur on the 3-5, 10-11, and 13-14, when others may not see you in the best light!

Venus continues to move through your solar tenth house this month. Issues surrounding career, reputation, and accountability matters are intensified, but due to Venus's retrograde motion, past issues are revisited and old problems come to light. This is a period of review and re-assessment of career and standing issues for you.

Mercury continues to transit your solar ninth house until the 9th. Cross-cultural exchanges, a visit or significant communication from someone far away, or a long journey broaden your thinking. Your thoughts are lifted above the usual daily concerns and immediate business into thoughts and visions about future, larger goals, and the purpose and meaning of your activities. You are putting everything into a larger context. Discussions or reading on issues of faith and of the spirit are likely to be a part of this.

Mercury transits your solar tenth house from the 9-24. You are likely thinking a lot about your career and business matters, or your career requires more communication than usual during this cycle. You speak with authority during this period, and you are more accountable than usual for what (and how) you communicate. Your ideas may come into public view now. Use the power of words to influence authority figures. This is an excellent period for developing career and professional plans or strategies. You may be turned to for advice or for your opinion on important matters. Although approachable and ready to communicate, you are less inclined towards chatting about frivolous matters now. You tend to think about your position or standing on a professional level more frequently during this cycle. You are likely doing some multi-tasking regarding career and business matters. Negative use of this influence would be to worry unnecessarily about your reputation and responsibilities.

Mercury transits your solar eleventh house from the 24th. Your mind is bright, alert, and active during this cycle, and you have the ability to come up with unusual and inventive ideas. Sharing your thoughts with others is a prime interest. Others tend to particularly enjoy your conversations during this transit--you are willing to listen as well as add your own thoughts. As well, your ability to grasp unusual subject matter and to intuitively understand what others are trying to say win you some brownie points! You could also do a lot of thinking and musing about your own happiness and long-term goals.

Mars continues to transit your solar seventh house until the 23rd, although the drama of this position is definitely easing, as Mars is now past an opposition to your Sun. With Mars in the seventh house, you are likely to exert your energy and initiative in active co-operation with others as associates or in partnerships of some kind. You can be aggressive and forceful in intimate relationships, or your partner may be displaying these traits. It is important to be restrained in all dealings with associates, business partners, and intimate partners. If you are too aggressive or dominant now, there is danger of trouble and loss through public opposition, unpopularity, damaged relationships, or even litigation in rare cases. This cycle tests your ability to resolve interpersonal conflicts. Remember that anger is often a mask for hurt feelings. There's bound to be a lot of friction or push and pull as you strive to balance your style and agenda with another's. 

Mars energizes your solar eighth house from the 23rd. Sexuality and intimacy are stimulated under this transit. Negative expression of this energy is the tendency towards ego conflicts concerning jointly held property or money. Conflicts with partners over values or possessions are possible. Occasionally, this transit could bring a crisis or ending of some kind. Something you hear about now might disturb or touch you deeply. You are likely to be more strategic in your actions during this period, as you become aware of the subtleties of human interaction. This is a time when your best course of action is to recognize that you need, or need to rely on, others for support.

Highlights:

August 1-2 Romance and pleasure are highlights right now with the Moon in your solar fifth. The Moon is in your element, and so are you! The flowing, expressive, and spontaneous energy surrounding you attracts like-minded (and hearted) people. Be sure to take time to enjoy yourself, preferably around others! Keywords: romance, creativity, spontaneity, pleasure, self-expression.

August 2-3 Operative energies include the Sun trine Jupiter and Mercury sextile Mars. The tendency to take the high road in our relations with others dominates now. We more easily assert ourselves and our needs without causing a stir. For you, a blast of positive energy arrives in your career or concerning your social standing and reputation. Money matters may thrive now. Work is busy but productive and satisfying.

August 5-6 Your partnerships are highlighted right now, and it's time to compromise. Insecurities in your partnerships are brought to light now, and the best way to handle this is to understand that you need others instead of competing for the floor. Some people find this time of the lunar month an energy sapper, as they feel ignored or unnoticed. Trying to go it alone won't work just now. The spotlight is on other people for the time being, and it's best to let them shine. Concentrate on truly listening to those close to you, and on playing a supportive role. Perhaps not a time to be make a presentation or to come on strong to the world. You are feeling reflective rather than expressive.

August 12 New Moon in Leo in your solar tenth house affects you until the next New Moon in September. Heightened sensitivity to your standing in society and your goals for constructive progress are highlighted this month. It's a good time to develop new business plans and goals, assuming the New Moon is not very afflicted, and a sense of renewal and reinvigoration with regards to your career goals is a potential. It is a time to focus on the elements of your personality that you are projecting to society and as a professional. Goals for self-mastery and self-discipline should be made at this time. This is a phase when you will be busy with career and/or public responsibilities.

August 12-13 Monthly career and reputation peak. Your credibility is important at this time of the lunar month, and efforts at self-promotion might be made now. This is the time when you're noticed for what you've done or haven't done. Do your best to be in top form, make career adjustments if needed, and don't be afraid to show others exactly what you're made of. You're at your best when you are showing the world your practical, competent, and responsible side.

August 12-15 Operative energies include Neptune opposing a Sun-Mercury conjunction; and Venus conjunct Saturn and trine Pluto. Relationship or financial tests are likely now, but act to improve matters considerably in the long run. Be wary of what others are saying, of what you read, and of what you perceive during this period. Avoid making premature decisions until Neptune's veil lifts. Your ruler trines Saturn, suggesting a good time for realistically handling mundane affairs in your life. Some feelings of disillusionment with your job or family could surface now, or you could be feeling increased responsibilities in these areas of your life.

August 17-19 Operative energies include the Sun conjunct Venus; and Mercury conjunct Saturn and trine Pluto. Conversations of a more serious or probing nature are likely now. We may feel compelled to get to the bottom of a matter. For you, this is a strong period for communications and self-expression. A financial matter may bear fruit.

August 19-20 Your Personal New Moon. A new personal cycle begins for you, and you feel fresh and re-energized. It's all about you now, so it's time to put your best foot forward. A blast of personal energy comes your way, and showing your leadership skills works for you now. You are at your most convincing, as others are accepting you at face value. Some people find that the Moon in their sign brings with it a restless, discontented, and emotional state, and that there is more on their plate than they expected or wanted. If this is the case for you, remember that these feelings are there because you need to make a change, however big or small. Use it to stimulate activity and positive change.

August 19-21 Operative energies include the Sun conjunct Saturn and trine Pluto. We may be recognized or rewarded in some way for the efforts we put forth. Improved concentration and focus, a more realistic outlook, and a practical awareness of the limits of time all help us to make steady progress. Dedication and commitment to our goals runs high. For you, this is an excellent period for goal-oriented career affairs.

August 22-23 Monthly money and income peak. You're looking at the world in terms of value and worth now, and what you have (or don't have) is on your mind. Money issues pop up now—the discovery of a way to increase your income, an unexpected gift or reward, or a brief and tiny financial crisis that motivates you to find new ways to make money are possible.

August 28 A Full Moon Lunar Eclipse occurs today in early Pisces. The effect of this eclipse can last 3-6 months. You want to have fun, and the demands of your larger goals in life may have been eclipsing your pleasure-seeking activities. It can be hard to find time for everything you want to do, but without creative self-expression (be it romantic or playful), you simply won't feel complete. It's time to do something self-expressive, fun, and creative. You may be required to complete a creative project at this time. You could feel an overwhelming need to pour your heart out to a lover, or a romantic affair reaches some sort of epiphany. There could be a whirlwind of activity surrounding your child or children.

August 29-30 Romance and pleasure are highlights right now with the Moon in your solar fifth. The Moon is in your element, and so are you! The flowing, expressive, and spontaneous energy surrounding you attracts like-minded (and hearted) people. Be sure to take time to enjoy yourself, preferably around others! Keywords: romance, creativity, spontaneity, pleasure, self-expression.

Scorpio (Born November 3 to 12) and Scorpio Ascendant from 10 to 20 degrees Scorpio:

July 2007: Scorpio Horoscope: Love, Career, & General Trends
 

July

scorpio the scorpionOverview.

All month, your focus turns outward, away from the more personal concerns that have occupied your thoughts in the last months. More than any other time during the year, you are feeling most adventurous and willing to take a leap of faith. This is a cycle in which you seek a higher meaning to your life, and/or seek out new experiences that take you beyond the here and now, and beyond the mundane details of day-to-day life. Anything that broadens your experiences attracts now. A lack of superficiality finds you straight to the point, interested in the truth of things. It would be wise for you to consider scheduling a vacation, adventure of sorts, or a course that expands your mind. These don't have to happen now, but taking the time to recognize your needs for escaping the daily grind, taking a few risks, and feeding your spirit for self-expression through some form of adventure or higher learning, will help you to feel good about yourself. The only caution with this cycle is that you could lose touch with everyday affairs and important details.

You are something of a free spirit this month, even if more mundane matters require attention. The second half of July is ideal for getting away from it all. Travel and adventure reinforce a sense of personal fulfillment. Prophetic visions might even figure. Partnerships become especially lively in July, although you could be dealing with aggressive or frustrating behavior from a special someone, particularly around the 11-12th. The best time of the month for personal magnetism occurs on the 7-10, when others find it easy to see your perspective on matters.

Mercury's retrograde period that began mid-June ends on July 9th. From the 9th until the 24th, we have a chance to revisit issues that stumped us during Mercury's retrograde period, and delays encountered begin to resolve.

Venus retrogrades on July 27th and stays in this apparent backward motion until September 8th. As Venus slows down in the last week of July, avoid making critical decisions about Venus-ruled areas of life, including love and social relationships, entertainment, beauty, and finances.

Your rulers, Mars and Pluto, forms stimulating connections to Mercury, Venus, and Uranus this month, on the 1, 7-9, and 20, representing opportunity periods for you. On the 1st, a pleasant communication or conversation could have you walking on air. Intimacy and financial matters fare especially well. On the 7-9, you have charm and magnetism on your side. Now is the time to attract what or who you want! Your partnerships fare especially well, whether it's to enhance an existing one or to attract a new one. On the 20th, family matters are strong. You are likely to pleasantly surprise someone with fabulous rewards. Red flag periods--times when you are not received as well as you would like, or are prone to impulsive, hasty, or ill-timed behavior--occur on the 10-12, 19, 24, and 30-31 when you may feel neglected, slighted, or unappreciated.

Opportunity periods for personal finances occur on the 2 and 27. Speculation and new financial initiatives are best avoided on the 3, 10, and 17-18, when financial decision-making is unclear.

As far as romantic and creative matters are concerned, opportunities to enhance or attract romance occur on the 2 and 27. These are power days for personal magnetism, charisma, and creativity. Issues that could be annoying or disconcerting concerning romantic matters are more likely to occur on the 13-14, 17-19, 23-25, and 30. These would be less than ideal days to go on a first date, for example. With regard to your serious partnerships, long-term relationships tend to thrive on the 1-2 and 5-10. Use these days for strengthening your connection or attracting a serious partnership. Tensions in close partnerships are more likely on the 28.

Better times to schedule job interviews or health appointments, and for success and happiness on the job, occur on the 1, 5-7, and 19-21. Red flag periods for these matters occur on the 10-15, 23-24, and 30-31, when you should probably avoid scheduling health appointments or job interviews if feasible. Matters related to your career and reputation tend to thrive on the 10-11. Challenges with these matters are more likely to occur on the 3, 6, 14, 17-19, and 25-26, when others may not see you in the best light!

Venus continues to transit your solar tenth house all month. Venus is charming, friendly, and affectionate, and her presence in your career and reputation sector brings social opportunities and charm to your career. You are coming across well at work now, and romantic opportunities, or simply more chances to socialize and network, are likely.

Mercury transits your solar ninth house all month. Not content to focus on mundane, practical affairs just now, your mind is on bigger visions, thoughts, and ideals. You are open to expanding your knowledge base during this cycle, and communications from or with someone far away may be part of the picture. You are putting everything into perspective now, rather than compartmentalizing. Instead of simply shooting the breeze, you are more inclined to discuss broader philosophies now. Your inclination during this cycle is to think about the "big picture" rather than the mundane circumstances and details of your life. Missing appointments and other forms of forgetfulness could be part of the picture now. However, these matters could be tricky while Mercury is retrograde until the 9th, after which some sort of resolve is likely to take place.

Mars moves through your partnership sector from the 8th. Partnerships may suffer from ego conflicts, or adversaries may be challenging. Use this energy to work cooperatively on relationship problems. You may even find that you seem to need someone's help in order to do what you want to do during this cycle. Relationships are vivacious and dynamic during this period. When a difference arises, you are quick to settle it, and have little patience for sweeping matters under the rug. Your close personal relationships are lively during this cycle--full of conflicts and resolutions or reconciliations.

Highlights:

July 1-2 Operative energies include Venus conjunct Saturn and Mercury sextile Mars. Challenges in close relationships may come to light now, bringing up the need to make solid plans or re-commitments. Reformulating a budget may also become necessary now. It's a good period for a heart-to-heart, as we tend to speak clearly and directly. However, we should watch for overly practical perspectives on sensitive matters.

July 5-6 Romance and pleasure are highlights right now with the Moon in your solar fifth. The Moon is in your element, and so are you! The flowing, expressive, and spontaneous energy surrounding you attracts like-minded (and hearted) people. Be sure to take time to enjoy yourself, preferably around others! Keywords: romance, creativity, spontaneity, pleasure, self-expression.

July 7-10 Operative energies include Venus trine Pluto, the Sun trine Uranus, and Mars sesquiquadrate Pluto. Powerful romantic and creative energies are with us now. Relationships, creative projects, or financial initiatives become more rich, meaningful, and intriguing. Freedom of expression, spontaneity, and creative license are important to us now. Don't let suspiciousness or negative thinking spoil the opportunities that arise now. Personal charisma is strong, even if you are rubbing some people the wrong way. Power struggles are likely on the job, but a partnership strengthens. Working relations may be strained, yet you stand to gain in the long run.

July 8-10 Mercury stations and turns direct on July 9th. Holding off on important discussions, interviews, or contracts is probably wise right now, as thinking is foggy and misunderstandings are likely. As Mercury moves forward and regains speed over the next couple of weeks, we can more easily get projects off the ground.

July 9-10 Your partnerships are highlighted right now, and it's time to compromise. Insecurities in your partnerships are brought to light now, and the best way to handle this is to understand that you need others instead of competing for the floor. Some people find this time of the lunar month an energy sapper, as they feel ignored or unnoticed. Trying to go it alone won't work just now. The spotlight is on other people for the time being, and it's best to let them shine. Concentrate on truly listening to those close to you, and on playing a supportive role. Perhaps not a time to be make a presentation or to come on strong to the world. You are feeling reflective rather than expressive.

July 14 New Moon in Cancer in your solar ninth house affects you until the next New Moon in August. The ninth house rules our spirit to grow, explore, and expand beyond the "regular" experiences in our lives. The New Moon here may bring some restlessness and dissatisfaction with regular routines. Make an effort to initiate new projects or activities that expand your mind, feed your spirit for adventure, and stretch your imagination. You may feel renewed by a new perspective on your life, something philosophical or spiritual that you read or learn, or an adventure that takes you away from the mundane routines in your life.

July 16-17 Monthly career and reputation peak. Your credibility is important at this time of the lunar month, and efforts at self-promotion might be made now. This is the time when you're noticed for what you've done or haven't done. Do your best to be in top form, make career adjustments if needed, and don't be afraid to show others exactly what you're made of. You're at your best when you are showing the world your practical, competent, and responsible side.

July 23-24 Your Personal New Moon. A new personal cycle begins for you, and you feel fresh and re-energized. It's all about you now, so it's time to put your best foot forward. A blast of personal energy comes your way, and showing your leadership skills works for you now. You are at your most convincing, as others are accepting you at face value. Some people find that the Moon in their sign brings with it a restless, discontented, and emotional state, and that there is more on their plate than they expected or wanted. If this is the case for you, remember that these feelings are there because you need to make a change, however big or small. Use it to stimulate activity and positive change.

July 23-26 Operative energies include Mercury semi-square Saturn, Mars square Neptune, and the Sun sesquiquadrate Uranus. Some tension is in the air now. It can be difficult to get a point across or to move about effortlessly. Others may be rebellious, resistant to change, or simply hard to pin down. Confusing circumstances surrounding your work, routines, or health could figure now. A lover or child could be in an aggressive or unruly mood.

July 25-26 Monthly money and income peak. You're looking at the world in terms of value and worth now, and what you have (or don't have) is on your mind. Money issues pop up now—the discovery of a way to increase your income, an unexpected gift or reward, or a brief and tiny financial crisis that motivates you to find new ways to make money are possible.

July 26-28 Venus stations and turns retrograde on July 27th. Venus will stay retrograde until September 8th--a period in which we re-assess our love relationships and finances. During this station, be particularly cautious in your dealings with people dear to you, as well as with money. Postpone major beauty treatments as well. See Venus Retrograde for more information about this cycle.

July 28-29 Mercury trines Uranus. This is an opportune time to attend meetings and other organized group activities, to communicate online, and to take part in activities involving computers, scientific projects, and metaphysics. Insights seem to come from "out of the blue". Original, creative ideas are easy to come by now. For you, a creative project may move forward, and pleasurable activities figure. Fun with friends and pleasant surprises could be part of the picture now.

July 30 Full Moon in Aquarius in your solar third house. The last two weeks have found you somewhat restless and in need of more from life than the mundane. Now the mundane is catching up with you. Errands need to be run, people are talking your ear off, you need to do some paperwork and answer calls. An important document could arrive, or a sudden need to run an important errand or to take a short trip could be part of the picture. You are pushed to find a balance now. Do what needs to be done so that you can free yourself up for more adventurous and fulfilling activities.

Scorpio (Born November 3 to 12) and Scorpio Ascendant from 10 to 20 degrees Scorpio:

Scorpio Horoscope: Love, Career, & General Trends
 

June

scorpio the scorpionOverview.

All month, the Sun energizes your sector of  transformation, change, sexuality, personal growth, regeneration, others' money and resources, addictions, and taxes. As a result, this is not the most gregarious of months for you. You take a step back, focus on intimacy with a partner, or simply retreat a little from the hectic pace of life. This is an excellent time to create a budget or financial plan, or to rid yourself of bad habits that undermine your sense of personal power and self-mastery. All that is deeply personal comes into focus now. Intimate matters are especially important to you during this cycle. Just how well you are handling your life comes up for inspection. Your self-mastery skills and psychological predisposition matter to you more than usual. This is the time of year when you are most desirous of change on a deep level. Clearing out psychic "junk" or ridding yourself of bad habits may be part of the picture now. You are more willing than usual to explore life's secrets. This cycle brings greater in-depth understanding and an inclination to delve beneath the surface of matters to get to the bottom of them. Research uncovers new material that allows you to develop a better overall picture of the year's events. This is an especially introspective cycle during which you have the chance to truly uncover your personal strengths and talents. On a more practical level, you may be dealing with joint finances and shared resources now more than usual.

This month, you are bound to find the “way out” of recent problems juggling your career and domestic responsibilities. Support--emotional or practical--arrives when you need it most! Finances and intimate matters are your major focus in the first three weeks of June, after which you have your sights set on adventure and exploration. Relations on the job become especially easygoing and pleasant after the first week of June, when social invitations also figure. A fabulous opportunity appears on the 20-22. Gifts, rewards, and recognition come your way.

In the first half of the month, there is a strong emphasis on your second and eighth house axis, and issues surrounding finances and ownership are in the foreground. Much activity around these "departments" of your life is stimulated.

Mercury begins a retrograde cycle on June 15th and runs until July 9th. All Mercury retrograde cycles particularly affect you in terms of communications with friends or groups, as well as intimate communications and shared financial resources, because Mercury rules these areas of your life. It would be wise to be especially clear when it comes to financial transactions and personal communications with friends, or, better yet, take this time to re-budget or rethink your plans instead of taking premature action. Group meetings may be postponed or cancelled, and friends may seem distant or confused. Occurring in your solar ninth house this time, extra care should be used regarding travel or education plans. Delays are very possible. It would be wise to be especially clear when it comes to communicating with professors and lawyers as well; or take this time to re-examine issues rather than communicating about them prematurely.

This month, Saturn and Neptune are in opposition for the final time. This energy first occurred in August 2006 (see our horoscope archives in August for an explanation of the conflict). Some sort of resolve of the conflict is in sight now, although getting to that point could involve some form of disillusionment.

Your rulers, Pluto and Mars, form stimulating connections to Jupiter, Chiron, Saturn, the Sun, Neptune, and each other this month, on the 4-5, 11-13, and 20-22, representing opportunity periods for you. Good will and positive energy comes your way on the 4-5, when you are appreciated by others quite naturally and automatically. You are expressing a most benevolent energy now that attracts good things to you. The 11-13 opportunity period is strong for productivity, recognition, and authority. Career matters are particularly strong. The 20-22 is perhaps the best period for you in June. Energy flows smoothly, and you are able to take a stand or assert your wishes without stepping on anyone's toes. It's also good for work matters. Red flag periods--times when you are not received as well as you would like, or are prone to impulsive, hasty, or ill-timed behavior--occur on the 3, 18-19, and 28-29, when you may feel neglected, slighted, or unappreciated. On the 3 and 18-19, feeling underappreciated and misunderstood is likely. A partner may not appreciate the way you are coming across now. Watch for impulsiveness or stressful changes on the 28-29.

Opportunity periods for personal finances occur on the 3-4, 7-8, and 19-20. Speculation and new financial initiatives are best avoided on the 5-6 and 21-22.

As far as romantic and creative matters are concerned, opportunities to enhance or attract romance occur on the 12-14 especially and 19-20. These days represent power days for personal magnetism, charisma, and creativity. Issues that could be annoying or disconcerting concerning romantic matters are more likely to occur on the 28-30. These would be less than ideal days to go on a first date, for example. With regard to your serious partnerships, long-term relationships tend to thrive on the 20 and 30-1 (with some challenges). Use these periods for strengthening your connection or attracting a serious partnership. Tensions in close partnerships are more likely on the 3-4, 5, 8-9, 18-19 (especially), 21-22, 25-26, and 29-30.

Better times to schedule job interviews or health appointments, and for success and happiness on the job, occur on the 3-5, 7-15, and 20-22. Red flag periods for these matters occur on the 28-29, when you should probably avoid scheduling health appointments or job interviews if feasible. Matters related to your career and reputation tend to thrive on the 6 and 11-13 especially. Challenges with these matters are more likely to occur on the 5, 9-10, 18-19, and 28-29, when others may not see you in the best light!

Venus continues to journey through your solar ninth house until the 16th. During this period, you are more self-expressive and adventurous with regards to expressing your affections. A love interest who attracts you during this cycle may be somebody who you previously wouldn't consider attractive, or someone whose cultural background is very different than yours. Your perceptions of beauty, in general, are broadened and widened now, and this can extend to things that attract you, including objects and ideas. You have a taste for the exotic and the spirit to match.

Venus moves through your solar tenth house from the 16th. During this cycle, you are most charming and well-received on the job. Your responsibility and authority are likeable qualities now, making this a favorable period overall for schmoozing with those in a higher position than you, as well as for negotiations or social activities related to business. Venus is charming, friendly, and affectionate, and her presence in your career and reputation sector brings social opportunities to your career. You are coming across well at work now, and romantic opportunities, or simply more chances to socialize and network, are likely. You are socially ambitious right now, and success may come though your good managerial qualities or some form of artistic talent, or, indirectly through your marriage partner. People who turn your head during this cycle are those who come across as especially competent.

Mercury transits near the cusp of your solar ninth house all month. Not content to focus on mundane, practical affairs just now, your mind is on bigger visions, thoughts, and ideals. You are open to expanding your knowledge base during this cycle, and communications from or with someone far away may be part of the picture. You are putting everything into perspective now, rather than compartmentalizing. Instead of simply shooting the breeze, you are more inclined to discuss broader philosophies now. Your inclination during this cycle is to think about the "big picture" rather than the mundane circumstances and details of your life. Missing appointments and other forms of forgetfulness could be part of the picture now, especially while Mercury is retrograde from the 15th forward.

Mars activates your solar sixth house all month. You have more energy for work and your daily routines tend to speed up during this transit. Perhaps you have a larger workload than usual. It's a great time to take charge of your health. You have much energy at your disposal to pick up (or step up) a health and physical activity program. It might be hard for you to work with others in a harmonious manner during this transit, and disputes with co-workers are possible. If you are feeling especially angry, frustrated, or restless, it would be wise to find little projects and things to do so that you can channel excess energy constructively. If health is affected, fevers or infections are more likely.

Highlights:

June 1-2 Monthly money and income peak. You're looking at the world in terms of value and worth now, and what you have (or don't have) is on your mind. Money issues pop up now—the discovery of a way to increase your income, an unexpected gift or reward, or a brief and tiny financial crisis that motivates you to find new ways to make money are possible.

June 3-6 Operative energies include the Sun trine Chiron and opposite Jupiter; Mars trine Jupiter and sextile Chiron; and Venus sesquiquadrate Jupiter. These influences produce a natural, enterprising spirit. Enthusiasm and confidence are with us now, and it's easy to tap into our more unique qualities and talents in order to go after what we want. However, we also have the tendency to over-reach. For you, it's time to shine on the job, although it's best not to overdo your authority now. Money matters are also strong, and you could enjoy an increase in pay from your work. A partner could be promising more than they can deliver, however.

June 8-9 Romance and pleasure are highlights right now with the Moon in your solar fifth. The Moon is in your element, and so are you! The flowing, expressive, and spontaneous energy surrounding you attracts like-minded (and hearted) people. Be sure to take time to enjoy yourself, preferably around others! Keywords: romance, creativity, spontaneity, pleasure, self-expression.

June 9 With the Sun and Venus in hard aspect to Uranus, watch for disruptions in personal relationships and general plans. Expect the unexpected! For you, these disruptions and surprises are likely to occur in the realms of partnerships and career. You could feel threatened by a partner's erratic behavior, for example.

June 10-12 Operative energies include the Sun sextile Mars and Saturn, and Mars trine Saturn. We are able to creatively solve problems and to instinctively take action when necessary now. It's easy to stick to a specific task and make headway. Work takes on definite shape, and we can see results from our efforts. This gives us a sense of responsibility and a feeling of directedness and purposefulness. This is a good time to temper our energy and to exercise better judgment, as well as to get and feel organized. Traditional methods work, and thoroughness brings rewards. Practical considerations are favored over impulsive decisions. For you, getting organized on the job can give you a real boost. This is a strong period for career matters--respect and authority. An energetic and productive conversation can also figure now.

June 12-13 Your partnerships are highlighted right now, and it's time to compromise. Insecurities in your partnerships are brought to light now, and the best way to handle this is to understand that you need others instead of competing for the floor. Some people find this time of the lunar month an energy sapper, as they feel ignored or unnoticed. Trying to go it alone won't work just now. The spotlight is on other people for the time being, and it's best to let them shine. Concentrate on truly listening to those close to you, and on playing a supportive role. Perhaps not a time to be make a presentation or to come on strong to the world. You are feeling reflective rather than expressive.

June 13 Operative energies include the Sun trine Neptune and Mars sextile Neptune. Interesting synchronicities can occur now. We may be at the right place at the right time, probably because our hunches are more likely to be correct and we are "tuned in". Instinctual judgment is enhanced under these influences. This period favors dancing, swimming, photography, the arts, and entertainment--mediums in which we act upon our more spiritual or artistic inclinations. It's a time when we are guided by intuition more than reason. Taking action towards the attainment of a dream can also figure now. For you, interesting twists to your life story could occur now, particularly surrounding partnerships and career. It's also strong for romantic matters.

June 14 New Moon in Gemini in your solar eighth house affects you until the next New Moon in July. This is a time of empowerment. It is a good time to focus on issues of intimacy as well as developing self-mastery skills. You may experience increased awareness of others—what makes them tick—as well as your own internal motivations during this period. It is a time when intimacy and deep levels of sharing are heightened. It is also a favorable time to start a financial plan, savings plan, take out a loan or consolidate, and do work in accounting.

June 14-16 Mercury is stationary retrograde now, and will remain retrograde until July 9th--a cycle when rethinking matters is the name of the game. When Mercury is stationary, as it is now, it's especially important to prepare for possible breakdowns in communication. Back up your computer, double-check your paperwork, and remember that you may not have all the necessary information to make big decisions for the time being. Avoid signing contracts or deals, as they may not work out as you expected, or they might need revision later.

June 18-19 Monthly career and reputation peak. Your credibility is important at this time of the lunar month, and efforts at self-promotion might be made now. This is the time when you're noticed for what you've done or haven't done. Do your best to be in top form, make career adjustments if needed, and don't be afraid to show others exactly what you're made of. You're at your best when you are showing the world your practical, competent, and responsible side.

June 25-26 Your Personal New Moon. A new personal cycle begins for you, and you feel fresh and re-energized. It's all about you now, so it's time to put your best foot forward. A blast of personal energy comes your way, and showing your leadership skills works for you now. You are at your most convincing, as others are accepting you at face value. Some people find that the Moon in their sign brings with it a restless, discontented, and emotional state, and that there is more on their plate than they expected or wanted. If this is the case for you, remember that these feelings are there because you need to make a change, however big or small. Use it to stimulate activity and positive change.

June 28-29 Monthly money and income peak. You're looking at the world in terms of value and worth now, and what you have (or don't have) is on your mind. Money issues pop up now—the discovery of a way to increase your income, an unexpected gift or reward, or a brief and tiny financial crisis that motivates you to find new ways to make money are possible.

June 29-30 Operative energies include Mars-Uranus, Sun-Saturn, Sun-Neptune, and Venus-Neptune hard aspects. The contrast between what is real and what is only a dream is explicit. It's best to avoid beginning a new project for the time being, as there is a lack of clarity now. For you, long-standing challenges regarding professional responsibilities and credibility as well as personal or domestic matters can reach a head now before final resolve. Disappointments and frustrations are likely. As well, dealing with disappointments regarding the services you render others and a partnership could be part of the picture now.

June 30 Full Moon in Capricorn in your solar third house. The last two weeks have found you somewhat restless and in need of more from life than the mundane. Now the mundane is catching up with you. Errands need to be run, people are talking your ear off, you need to do some paperwork and answer calls. An important document could arrive, or a sudden need to run an important errand or to take a short trip could be part of the picture. You are pushed to find a balance now. Do what needs to be done so that you can free yourself up for more adventurous and fulfilling activities.

Scorpio (Born November 3 to 12) and Scorpio Ascendant from 10 to 20 degrees Scorpio:

May 2007: Scorpio Horoscope: Love, Career, & General Trends
 

May

scorpio the scorpionOverview. All month, the Sun illuminates your seventh house. At this time of year, you have a greater need than usual to be with a partner. Bouncing ideas off someone helps you to better understand yourself. A partner provides a mirror for your own self-discovery. Now is the time to realize your own potential through a significant other. During this cycle, you focus on balancing your personal interests and objectives with your social life, or with those of a partner. The emphasis is on "us" rather than "me". You need the energies, companionship, and support of other people, and they may also seek out your support and companionship. It's important to include others rather than to go solo for the time being. However, bending too much to the will of another is not advised either. Social interactions of a personal, one-on-one kind are emphasized. Circumstances are such that your diplomacy skills are required. Your popularity is increasing, and is reinforced by your own ability to cooperate and harmonize. Your ego and pride are tied up in how you relate to others now. This may be an especially busy time for people who consult or work with clients one-on-one.

May is a month of compromise for you, Scorpio. The challenge is to balance the needs of a significant other with your own. Your emotions are on your sleeve around the Full Moon on the 2nd--a rare thing! A new beginning in a relationship is in the works beginning on the 16th, and someone completely opposite to your usual “type“ may catch your eye. Expanding your personal resources is especially important to you now, and so is taking a few risks and enjoying your bounty! It can be challenging to accommodate both needs at once, however.

This month, Jupiter squares Uranus and trines Saturn. These long-term energies have been with us since January and March, respectively. For you, some material benefits can come from your career. Alternatively, you may have more resources to invest into your career or business. You may find that you are more able to earn a living from what you love doing this year. This trend continues for the next few months. However, you may experience some conflicts between your desire for security and a stable income and your needs for entertainment and pleasure, or possibly your romantic life. Expanding your personal resources is important to you now, and so is taking a few risks and enjoying your bounty! It can be challenging to accommodate both needs at once. As well, excitement in your romantic and social life may distract you from increasing your earning power. Try not to instigate change just for the sake of change, and avoid rash behavior. On the other hand, if you look for opportunities, you have more confidence and faith now to do something totally different, and inspiration may be found now. But do avoid blowing off responsibilities while you pursue your new vision.

Your rulers, Pluto and Mars, form stimulating connections to Mercury on the 8-9, representing opportunity periods for you. Intelligence is at a peak on the 20-21, when you can present your ideas to an especially receptive audience. You could get word about something now, or be called upon for advice. Red flag periods--times when you are not received as well as you would like, or are prone to impulsive, hasty, or ill-timed behavior--occur on the 3-4, 6-7, 10, 12-14 (especially), 19-20, and 27, when you may feel neglected, slighted, or unappreciated. Watch for a conflict of interests on the 12-14.

Opportunity periods for personal finances occur on the 4-7 and 30-31. Speculation and new financial initiatives are best avoided on the 1, 8-10, 19-20, and 23. The 1st may find you extravagant and the 10th, impulsive, with your finances.

As far as romantic and creative matters go, opportunities to enhance or attract romance occur on the 1, 5-6, 22-23, and 30-31 in particular. These days represent power days for personal magnetism, charisma, and creativity. Issues that could be annoying or disconcerting concerning romantic matters are more likely to occur on the 7, 12-14, 24-25, and 28. These would be less than ideal days to go on a first date, for example. With regard to your serious partnerships, long-term relationships tend to thrive on the 1, 20-21, and 24-25. Use these periods for strengthening your connection or attracting a serious partnership. Tensions in close partnerships are more likely on the 6-11, 14, 22-23, and 28-29, with the 6-7 the most challenging of the bunch. A face-off is likely now.

Better times to schedule job interviews or health appointments, and for success and happiness on the job, occur on the 8-9. Red flag periods for these matters occur on the 1, 12-13, 15-16, 19-20, and 23-24, when you should probably avoid scheduling health appointments or job interviews if feasible. Of these dates, the 12-13 is likely the most challenging for work and health affairs.

Venus continues to grace your eighth house until the 18th. Intimate connections can be especially rich and meaningful during this cycle. Your magnetism revolves around mysterious fascination rather than outgoing charm. Intensity appeals in your relationships. This can also be a time in which you discover untapped resources or talents. It’s a good time to work out money problems or other issues of sharing with a partner. You may get the backing you need now--financial or emotional.

Venus brings warmth and charm to your solar ninth house from the 18th. A taste for the exotic takes hold during this cycle. Routine affairs simply don't seem to satisfy. You receive pleasure from anything that expands your horizons, both physically and mentally. Foreign people and places may particularly appeal now. You tend to be expansive and generous when it comes to love. A love interest who attracts you during this cycle may be somebody who you previously wouldn't consider attractive, or someone whose cultural background is very different than yours. You have a taste for the exotic and the spirit to match. Public relations work, promotion, and other such endeavors are favored now. It is more about how you express yourself than the specifics of what you are saying that helps sway others to your position. There could be especial rapport with foreigners and with women if you are traveling during this period. You are all the more attractive and charming with this position, which increases your popularity. If a romance were to begin now, it is more likely to be with someone of a different background or educational level, or someone you meet through travel. You have a taste for the exotic now that can show up in many areas of your life--who you are attracted to, what you buy, the kind of art or entertainment you enjoy, and so forth.

Mercury transits your solar seventh house from the 2-16. During this time, the desire to bounce ideas off a partner or close friend is very strong. Communication becomes especially important to you. You feel attracted to intelligent people with whom you can communicate well and exchange ideas during this cycle. You know how to relate to others and you do it in a natural and warm manner. You will seek chatty and restless friends who stimulate your curiosity and mental abilities. You may attract a younger person into your life.

Mercury transits your solar eighth house from the 16th. You are more intuitive now than usual, picking up all of the hidden cues from people around you and reading between the lines. This is an excellent cycle in which to do some financial planning and strategizing. Research is also highly favored. It's also easier for you to approach sensitive, intimate, and personal matters with rationality and logic. As such, this is a great time to open up conversations about topics that normally might cause waves, such as those revolving around the sharing of power, intimacy, and finances.

Mars continues to activate and energize your romance and pleasure sector until the 29th. During this cycle, you are likely to exert your energy and initiative in actively pursuing a rewarding love life, social amusement, and pleasure in general. You have a likeable, competitive, and almost flamboyant temperament during this transit. There is a stronger desire for creative endeavors, athletics, risk-taking pursuits, and perhaps some gambling if inclined.
 

Highlights:

May 2 Full Moon in Scorpio in your solar first house. "Hey, what about me?" is the feeling of a Full Moon in the first house. You're looking for a bit of attention right now as you feel that life has been too "other-oriented" recently. Try to avoid infantile outbursts. Instead, work on your self-assertiveness. You do count, and there are ways to assert your own needs without stepping on others' toes. Finding a balance between autonomy and dependence is what this Full Moon is about for you. Your emotions are on your sleeve right now. It is a good time to put your needs first, but doing so with respect for others will take you further. Whether you can succeed as a leader is "tested" right now.

May 2-3 Your Personal New Moon. A new personal cycle begins for you, and you feel fresh and re-energized. It's all about you now, so it's time to put your best foot forward. A blast of personal energy comes your way, and showing your leadership skills works for you now. You are at your most convincing, as others are accepting you at face value. Some people find that the Moon in their sign brings with it a restless, discontented, and emotional state, and that there is more on their plate than they expected or wanted. If this is the case for you, remember that these feelings are there because you need to make a change, however big or small. Use it to stimulate activity and positive change.

May 3-5 Operative energies include the Sun conjunct Mercury and in hard aspect with Pluto; and Mercury square Saturn. Our wants are aligned with our thoughts, and problem-solving comes naturally. What we say or write now has impact, for better or for worse! However, we are not very good at truly listening to what others have to say, and when we do, we tend to read between the lines with a negative slant. Our minds are investigative. Some of us could feel troubled or stressed with these influences. For you, power plays may occur with partners or superiors. You could experience some tension due to a feeling of being misunderstood or unacknowledged.

May 5-6 Monthly money and income peak. You're looking at the world in terms of value and worth now, and what you have (or don't have) is on your mind. Money issues pop up now—the discovery of a way to increase your income, an unexpected gift or reward, or a brief and tiny financial crisis that motivates you to find new ways to make money are possible.

May 7-9 Operative energies include Venus opposition Pluto; Sun square Saturn and sextile Uranus; Mercury square Neptune and sextile Mars. Intense social interactions are likely during this period. Frustrations involving blocked will and evasiveness can drive us to come up with creative solutions to problems now. For you, you could be feeling unappreciated. A conflict, or even a face-off, with a close partner could be part of the picture, likely over money and issues of sharing. Career matters are challenging now, but lead to the discovery of new systems or solutions.

May 11-12 Romance and pleasure are highlights right now with the Moon in your solar fifth. The Moon is in your element, and so are you! The flowing, expressive, and spontaneous energy surrounding you attracts like-minded (and hearted) people. Be sure to take time to enjoy yourself, preferably around others! Keywords: romance, creativity, spontaneity, pleasure, self-expression.

May 12-14 Operative energies include Mars square Pluto, Sun square Neptune, and Venus sesquiquadrate Neptune. Our desires are intense and difficult to satisfy right now. Some disillusionments are likely, as we tend to see what we want to see rather than what is. For you, impulsiveness can be a problem. You might encounter aggressive people or situations now. Disappointments or disillusionments could occur now, particularly regarding close partnerships, negotiations, and career matters.

May 16 New Moon in late Taurus in your solar seventh house affects you until the next New Moon in June. Negotiations and diplomacy are highlighted during this period, as it is a favorable time to begin new relationships or to re-define existing ones. Issues of sharing and partnership come to the fore. Increased awareness of the need for someone significant to lean on or to rely on is often associated with this position. Working on, or resolving to work on, relationships that are mutually supportive is a good idea at this time. If you find yourself sensitive to the feeling of lacking support from partners, this may be a good time to ask yourself how companionable you are, and work on developing yourself in this area of life. You might just find that this is a period when you are at your most gracious. It is also a good time to make contacts and to make something public.

May 16-17 Your partnerships are highlighted right now, and it's time to compromise. Insecurities in your partnerships are brought to light now, and the best way to handle this is to understand that you need others instead of competing for the floor. Some people find this time of the lunar month an energy sapper, as they feel ignored or unnoticed. Trying to go it alone won't work just now. The spotlight is on other people for the time being, and it's best to let them shine. Concentrate on truly listening to those close to you, and on playing a supportive role. Perhaps not a time to be make a presentation or to come on strong to the world. You are feeling reflective rather than expressive.

May 19-20 Operative energies include Mars sesquiquadrate Saturn, Sun inconjunct Pluto, and Mercury opposite Jupiter and square Uranus. There is a feeling of being blocked when we are attempting to go after what we want. Adjustments are necessary now in order for our lives to move forward. The need to make changes in our life that will further our psychological development arise now. Decision-making, however, may be based on unrealistic or overly optimistic premises. For you, challenges with your work or daily routine can figure now. Feelings of going unnoticed or unacknowledged point to a need to make adjustments. Intimacy, sharing, and money matters could also challenge you now.

May 22-23 Monthly career and reputation peak. Your credibility is important at this time of the lunar month, and efforts at self-promotion might be made now. This is the time when you're noticed for what you've done or haven't done. Do your best to be in top form, make career adjustments if needed, and don't be afraid to show others exactly what you're made of. You're at your best when you are showing the world your practical, competent, and responsible side.

May 25 Venus trines Uranus. We lose our fear of taking risks at this time, and we happily embrace all that is new, unusual, and out-of-the-ordinary with regards to romantic involvements as well as financial undertakings. We have an offbeat, pleasant attitude and people are more willing to socialize. For you, this is a strong period for partnership matters. You are able to approach matters creatively and acceptingly, making this an ideal time to smooth over differences. You could be in store for a pleasant surprise from a partner. A secret may be uncovered, leaving you feeling released and confident.

May 29-30 Your Personal New Moon. A new personal cycle begins for you, and you feel fresh and re-energized. It's all about you now, so it's time to put your best foot forward. A blast of personal energy comes your way, and showing your leadership skills works for you now. You are at your most convincing, as others are accepting you at face value. Some people find that the Moon in their sign brings with it a restless, discontented, and emotional state, and that there is more on their plate than they expected or wanted. If this is the case for you, remember that these feelings are there because you need to make a change, however big or small. Use it to stimulate activity and positive change.

May 31 Full Moon in Sagittarius in your solar second house. Intimacy, issues of power and control, or joint finances may have been a focus for the last two weeks. Now it's time to recognize what makes you comfortable. This Full Moon is about balancing the give and take of intimacy--the giving and receiving of pleasure. Sharing issues come into focus, as do issues of power--what's yours and what's mine. Your comfort zones matter, and now is the time to take care of your own needs without eclipsing the needs of others.

Scorpio (Born November 3 to 12) and Scorpio Ascendant from 10 to 20 degrees Scorpio:

April 2007: Scorpio Horoscope: Love, Career, & General Trends
 

April

scorpio the scorpionOverview. All month, the Sun illuminates your sixth house. During this cycle, you take more pride in the work you do and in your health routines than any other time of the year. You are sorting through the experiences of the last several months, separating the worthwhile from the worthless. This is a good time to build your skills, to get organized, and to attend to your health and wellbeing. It’s a great time to make improvements to your regular routines. Your self-esteem and your ego are tied up in the work you do and in the services you give. Details are more important to you now. It's time to bring order to your life by focusing on the little things that make up the whole. This cycle presents an opportunity to get rid of what doesn't work in your life, while also discovering what does. You could seek distinction and strive towards perfection in your work. Efficiency should be your goal now. Your physical health, as well as the relationship between your body and your mind, are in focus.

This is an excellent month for finding solutions to irksome problems, especially from the second week of April. Your energy and vigor increases, and so does your resistance (both physical and mental). You have all the resources at hand to get your life on track. A new position or task on the job keeps you busy, and any domestic conflicts you have been experiencing are ironed out by mid-April. Financial and romantic opportunities arise in the last week of the month, and recognition on a professional level warms your spirit around the 19th.

Jupiter retrogrades this month, kicking off a retrograde period that lasts until the first week of August, and involves some re-thinking of matters surrounding your personal finances and possessions. By August, you will be ready to move forward in these areas with gusto. Saturn's direct motion this month suggests that any stagnation you've been experiencing with your career and reputation will begin to lift and these matters start to move forward. It's also a helpful influence for communications and learning.

Your rulers, Pluto and Mars, forms stimulating connections to each other, Chiron, the Sun, and Mercury on the 4-5, 15-19, and 26, representing opportunity periods for you. Others naturally appreciate the unique qualities that make you "you" on the 15-19. You can enjoy increased authority and personal influence during this period. Intelligence is at a peak on the 26th, when you can present your ideas to an especially receptive audience. Red flag periods--times when you are not received as well as you would like, or are prone to impulsive, hasty, or ill-timed behavior--occur on the 9-11, when social blunders or miscommunications are more likely.

Opportunity periods for personal finances occur on the 9-10 and 21. Speculation and new financial initiatives are best avoided on the 2-4, 24-25, 27-28, and 30, when your financial planet forms challenging or awkward aspects.

As far as romantic and creative matters go, opportunities to enhance or attract romance occur on the 9-12 and 21-22. These days represent power days for personal magnetism, charisma, and creativity. Issues that could be annoying or disconcerting concerning romantic matters are more likely to occur on the 2-4, 14, 24-25. These would be less than ideal days to go on a first date, for example. With regard to your serious partnerships, long-term relationships tend to thrive on the 5-8, 24-25, 27-28, and 30. Use these periods for strengthening your connection or attracting a serious partnership. Tensions in close partnerships are more likely on the 1-4, 10-11, 20-23, and 29.

Better times to schedule job interviews or health appointments, and for success and happiness on the job, occur on the 4-5, 14-17, and 28. Red flag periods for these matters occur on the 1-2, 21-24, and 27-30, when you should probably avoid scheduling health appointments or job interviews if feasible. Matters related to your career and reputation tend to thrive on the 3-5, 7-12, and 18-19 (especially). Challenges with these matters are more likely to occur on the 1-2, 21-23, and 24-25, when others may not see you in the best light!

Venus continues her trek through your partnership sector until the 20th. To a very marked degree, your general well-being and emotional health depend on sound and meaningful relationships--both social and romantic during this cycle. Financial prosperity or social success may come through your marriage partner at this time. Special attention to and from a partner is in focus, and flattery will get you everywhere if you use it wisely. Set aside some private time when no one else can get in the way of the feelings you want to share. Give to a partner exactly what you would like to receive just now. It's not about you right now--it's about someone else close, and the sweeter your attentions, the more delicious your rewards will be! Smoothing out your close personal relationships is what makes you happy during this cycle. You have a greater need than usual for contact and exchange with an intimate partner. If single, you are more willing than normal to enter into a committed relationship. In general, you are adaptable when it comes to your affections.

Venus warms your solar eighth house from the 20th. During this cycle, a financial boost is possible, or you may gain financially through your partner. A deep and intimate connection made now could be revitalizing and even healing. You are more inclined to want to smooth over differences in a partnership concerning the sharing of power, intimacy matters, finances, and other emotionally-charged topics. Intimate relationships are intensified now. Either you or your partner want a deeper union.

Mercury continues to transit your solar fifth house until the 16th. During this cycle, there is a powerful mental connection with your creative self-expression. You are proud of your ideas, and very good at expressing them to others smoothly now. Your thinking is more creative than usual. You tend to entertain others with your conversation, and your sense of humor (and of mischief!) is especially strong. Your thoughts turn to children, pleasures, or romance during this expressive cycle. 

Mercury transits your solar sixth house from the 16th. This is a good placement for Mercury, as it is the natural ruler of the sixth house. It's an excellent period for sorting out the details of your daily existence. You are inclined to make to-do lists, pay bills and sort out clutter, and to do detail work on the job. Health matters are most certainly on your brain as well, and you could be thinking of scheduling check-ups or busy researching ways to improve your health. You may also show a keener interest in improving your basic skills. Your approach to work during this cycle is pleasant, happy, and logical for the most part, unless you allow worry or scattered energy to enter the picture. You are inclined to want to learn new work skills, or to improve your skills and output in terms of work. There is likely to be more activity, movement, contact, and communications with co-workers now. You tend to take more interest in organizing your working environment--and this is an excellent time to do so, as you are especially objective and intelligent when it comes to getting a handle on your daily affairs and all of the "little things" that contribute to a feeling of efficiency and competency. Menial tasks become more prominent. Watch, however, for tension or idle chit-chat interfering with your work output during this cycle.

Mars moves through your fourth house until the 19th, energizing your domestic life and relationships with family. This might express itself as more activity on the home front. You could literally apply your energy to working around the house, for example. Or, you might find that there is a lot of hustle and bustle in your home. Energized interaction with family is also very possible now, and this can be positive or negative, depending on how the energy is handled! You are slightly more defensive and certainly more protective than usual during this period. You might engage in arguments with, or on behalf of, those closest to you.

Mars brings heat, energy, and urgency to your solar fifth house from the 19th. This is a very self-expressive time when you have lots of energy, but not necessarily self-discipline to match. You have more energy at your disposal to express yourself creatively, through activities with children, romantic activities, hobbies, or sports. Your love life may step up a notch, and this could be an especially passionate time. You tend to put more energy into play and pleasure! Be careful not to burn the candle at both ends. Also, watch out for a tendency to want to gamble. You are more playful than usual, and especially magnetic.

Highlights:

April 2 Full Moon in Libra in your solar twelfth house. Relationships come into focus--dependency issues surface now. Circumstances are such that you have an overwhelming need to be alone. You've been busy with all sorts of everyday activities, deeply involved in your work and routines. It's time to balance your life with some down time—otherwise, you simply don't feel whole. Issues come to light that originate from deep within. It's an excellent time to get in touch with what's been brewing beneath the surface. A secret may be revealed.

April 5-6 Your Personal New Moon. A new personal cycle begins for you, and you feel fresh and re-energized. It's all about you now, so it's time to put your best foot forward. A blast of personal energy comes your way, and showing your leadership skills works for you now. You are at your most convincing, as others are accepting you at face value. Some people find that the Moon in their sign brings with it a restless, discontented, and emotional state, and that there is more on their plate than they expected or wanted. If this is the case for you, remember that these feelings are there because you need to make a change, however big or small. Use it to stimulate activity and positive change.

April 7-8 Operative energies include Mercury sextile Venus and the Sun trine Saturn. This is a good time for us to take care of practical and "earthly" matters. Meeting responsibilities is satisfying now. For you, this is a highly productive and possibly profitable period for all work and career matters.

April 7-8 Monthly money and income peak. You're looking at the world in terms of value and worth now, and what you have (or don't have) is on your mind. Money issues pop up now—the discovery of a way to increase your income, an unexpected gift or reward, or a brief and tiny financial crisis that motivates you to find new ways to make money are possible.

April 9-12 Operative energies include Sun trine Jupiter and sextile Neptune; and Mercury square Pluto. Idealistic and humanitarian goals or impulses surface now, although a suspicious attitude or stance could also be part of the picture. For you, this is a strong period for personal finances and work matters. Something arrives unexpectedly that boosts your confidence in these areas of your life.

April 14-15 Romance and pleasure are highlights right now with the Moon in your solar fifth. The Moon is in your element, and so are you! The flowing, expressive, and spontaneous energy surrounding you attracts like-minded (and hearted) people. Be sure to take time to enjoy yourself, preferably around others! Keywords: romance, creativity, spontaneity, pleasure, self-expression.

April 17 New Moon late Aries in your solar sixth house affects you until the next New Moon in May. The New Moon in the sixth house heralds a time when new diet regimes, healthy routines, and satisfying work schedules can be successfully initiated. It is a time of taking care of business, handling details, and increasing your efficiency by re-organizing or simply by working enthusiastically at tasks that help you get caught up in your work. It is also a good time for analysis of any sort, as critical thinking is now at its peak. This period is marked by a desire to sort things out, but also to be useful. 

April 18-19 Your partnerships are highlighted right now, and it's time to compromise. Insecurities in your partnerships are brought to light now, and the best way to handle this is to understand that you need others instead of competing for the floor. Some people find this time of the lunar month an energy sapper, as they feel ignored or unnoticed. Trying to go it alone won't work just now. The spotlight is on other people for the time being, and it's best to let them shine. Concentrate on truly listening to those close to you, and on playing a supportive role. Perhaps not a time to be make a presentation or to come on strong to the world. You are feeling reflective rather than expressive.

April 18-19 Operative energies include Sun trine Pluto and Mercury sextile Chiron. Intensity of focus, healing conversations, and a renewed sense of purpose are with us now. For you, this is a strong period for practical matters and a sense of security. You could win some admiration or respect now. Career matters are also strong.

April 21-22 Operative energies include Mercury trine Jupiter and Saturn and sextile Neptune. Strong productivity on mental levels characterizes this combination. It's a good period for coming up with successful business plans and strategies. This is yet another combination in April that is strong for career, work, and finances. This can be a time of great constructive accomplishment, and is excellent for news on the financial front.

April 25-26 Monthly career and reputation peak. Your credibility is important at this time of the lunar month, and efforts at self-promotion might be made now. This is the time when you're noticed for what you've done or haven't done. Do your best to be in top form, make career adjustments if needed, and don't be afraid to show others exactly what you're made of. You're at your best when you are showing the world your practical, competent, and responsible side.

April 26-30 A creative combination occurs now, involving a T-square between Venus, Jupiter, Mars and Uranus. Saturn and Neptune form harmonious angles to the Venus-Jupiter opposition. This exciting and possibly upsetting configuration stimulates your pleasure, romance, intimacy, and financial sectors. Sudden and unexpected happenings can occur with romantic partners, children, or creative projects. You are much more willing to experiment and take chances, to try new things, and to be a little wild. If you are artistically or creatively inclined, you'll discover a fresh approach or technique which may radically alter your work, and you'll have bursts of sudden inspiration and intense activity. Also, unusual, exciting romantic activities are quite possible now. Watch for differences of opinion with a partner now. One of you may want more intimacy.

Scorpio (Born November 3 to 12) and Scorpio Ascendant from 10 to 20 degrees Scorpio:

March 2007: Scorpio Horoscope: Love, Career, & General Trends
 

March

scorpio the scorpionOverview. The Sun illuminates your fifth house all month. After a period of “nesting”, you are coming out of your shell, ready to perform and to express yourself creatively. This is a very playful period of the year, when you are inspired creatively and emotionally. After a period of self-protectiveness, you are now more spontaneous and more willing to take risks. You take more pride than usual in your creations, your love affairs, your children, and your hobbies. Pleasure and amusement play an important role in your search for freedom of self-expression now. Show off your best colors! You want others to take notice, and you are more sensitive to whether people appreciate you. More than any time of the year, this is the cycle in which you focus on having fun, enjoying romance, and expressing yourself creatively. Your hobbies, leisure time, moments spent with children, gaming time, and so forth, all come into focus at this time of year. This is a cycle in which you find joy in expressing who you are--when your "inner child" comes out to play. This is a time when you are more flirtatious than usual, and when you might take a few risks in life--not only gambling with games but with life itself. You might be a bit of a showman at this time. You are likely feeling good in general, and you tend to spread the joy.

Material benefits from your career are very likely this month, as well as increased respectability and security. You are especially rooted in the world of the five senses now, and tending to practical matters brings rewards. Romantic unrest or surprises arise in the first week of the month. Differences are ironed out by the second week. Some will experience this energy through relationships with their children. A new start on a romantic level arrives from the 19th, when a solar eclipse brings brand new energy to your love life for months to come.

From the 7th, Mercury turns direct and matters that have been stagnant for you begin to move forward. Mercury leaves its storm on the 16th, when "all things Mercury" tend to resume near-normal pace, and leaves its shadow on March 27th. From the 16-27th, we have a chance to revisit matters that may have stumped or annoyed us while Mercury was retrograde, or to put into action ideas that came to us during this cycle. For you, communications with friends, groups, intimate partners, and family members resume with less confusion and more clarity.

Two eclipses occur this month. One is a Lunar Eclipse on the 3rd at 13 degrees Virgo. Its opposition to Uranus brings a surprising turn of events. The other is a Solar Eclipse on the 19th at 28 degrees of Pisces. The effects of eclipses stay with us for as long as six months, and they reveal main areas of focus for this half-year period. A general rule of thumb regarding eclipses is to avoid major decision-making in the week before an eclipse. This is because new information that could change our perspective often is revealed in the week after the eclipse. Therefore, major decision-making is best avoided from March 1-3 and then March 12-19th.

The Lunar Eclipse on the 3rd stimulates your solar eleventh house. Surprises surrounding long-term goals, friendships, and group affiliations may be in store. Something that has been "in hiding" or brewing under the surface of things comes to light, or there is a significant fruition or culmination. This could manifest, for example, as a situation that tests a friendship, a culmination or fruition of a casual relationship, you could be called upon to perform a humanitarian gesture, a friend may experience a little crisis and ask for your help, you could suddenly find yourself around many people, perhaps after a period of relative solitude or private time, and other such possibilities.

The Solar Eclipse on the 19th marks a new beginning for you. Letting go of the past is necessary in order to move forward. This eclipse occurs in your solar fifth house, suggesting a new approach to love, children, or creative projects. A new set-up in existing love affairs or a new love affair altogether may be formed in the coming months, as well as a sense of renewal and reinvigoration with regards to your ability to express yourself spontaneously and creatively. This is a phase when you have an increased awareness of your need for fun and leisure activities.

Jupiter trines Saturn this month, linking your second and tenth houses in a pleasing way. This is a period of constructive accomplishment. We are practical, realistic, and our judgment is especially sound--and we derive much satisfaction from practical accomplishment. The key to harnessing this wonderful energy is to identify and find pleasure in the simple things that make you happy. For you, some material benefits can come from your career. Alternatively, you may have more resources to invest into your career or business. You may find that you are more able to earn a living from what you love doing this year. This trend continues for the next few months.

Your ruler, Pluto, forms stimulating connections to Mercury and Venus this month on the 1st and 16-17, representing opportunity periods for you. New knowledge and an opportunity to achieve a mental gain comes your way on the 1st. On the 16-17, romantic and creative sparks lead to growth. Red flag periods--times when you are not received as well as you would like, or are prone to impulsive, hasty, or ill-timed behavior--occur on the 15th, 19-20, and 28-29. Try not to let the past interfere with the present. If a special someone is hell-bent on bringing up the past, be sensitive, but emphasize the good in the present as well.

Opportunity periods for personal finances occur on the 7-8, 14-18, and 22-24. Speculation and new financial initiatives are best avoided on the 1-2, 9th, and 21st, when your financial planet is challenged.

As far as romantic and creative matters go, opportunities to enhance or attract romance occur on the 9-10 and 24-26. These days represent power days for personal magnetism, charisma, and creativity. Issues that could be annoying or disconcerting concerning romantic matters are more likely to occur in the first week of the month and the 27th. These would be less than ideal days to go on a first date, for example. For more serious partnerships, long-term relationships tend to thrive on the 2-3, 7-10 (especially), 16, and 30-31. Tensions in close partnerships are more likely on the 17-18, 21, and 28-29.

Better times to schedule job interviews or health appointments, and for success and happiness on the job, occur on the 23-26. Red flag periods for these matters occur on the 1-2, 21-22, and 27-31, when you should probably avoid scheduling health appointments or job interviews if feasible. Matters related to your career and reputation tend to thrive on the 3-5, when unusual or surprising events are likely to arise. Challenges with these matters are more likely to occur on the 8-10, 18-22, and 24-31, when others may not see you in the best light!

Venus transits your solar sixth until the 26th. The areas of life where you are most likely to express your social, romantic, and artistic qualities are in establishing a happy and harmonious work environment through friendly relations with colleagues. Romantic and social activities may revolve around your working environment. You are generally well liked and respected socially on the job right now. This is a good time to promote harmony and good will on the job. Some laziness is possible now, as you tend to associate pleasure with work. Perhaps you are socializing more than usual on the job. You have good team spirit during this cycle, and you are more tactful and obliging with your co-workers. You are less inclined to fall in love for the sake of love itself during this cycle. Your tendency is to consider whether it is clever to do so! You're most successful doing tasks that involve cooperation and team harmony, or the personal, human side of things.

Venus eases through your solar seventh house from the 26th forward. Special attention to and from a partner is in focus, and flattery will get you everywhere if you use it wisely. One-to-one relating appeals to you more than group activities or more casual connections. Smoothing out your close personal relationships is what makes you happy during this cycle. If single, you are more willing than normal to enter into a committed relationship. In general, you are adaptable when it comes to your affections--very willing to compromise, negotiate, and make peace.

Mercury transits your solar fourth house until the 28th. This is a time when you can enjoy increased powers of concentration. You may require solitude in order to get mental work done during this cycle. Your memory is more retentive than usual, and your thoughts often turn to personal matters, family, and loved ones. You might particularly enjoy discussions about your early life, the past, or family matters during this cycle. In fact, it's a great time to open up conversations with loved ones, as you are more rational when it comes to personal matters now. Your mind often wanders to domestic concerns, and issues surrounding your home, family, and personal past. On the other hand, this transit sometimes indicates an especially busy, and perhaps hectic, period on the domestic scene. For example, you might take home work or find that people drop by your home often during this cycle.

Mars continues to energize your solar third house until the 11th. During this cycle, you are likely to exert your energy and initiative
into building mental resourcefulness and an aggressive, active intellect. There is a liking for competitive mental pastimes that present an intellectual challenge now, and you enjoy learning, argument, debate, and discussion more than usual. The tendency to speak before you think is high.

Mars moves through your fourth house from the 11th, energizing your domestic life and relationships with family. This might express itself as more activity on the home front. You could literally apply your energy to working around the house, for example. Or, you might find that there is a lot of hustle and bustle in your home. Energized interaction with family is also very possible now, and this can be positive or negative, depending on how the energy is handled! You are slightly more defensive and certainly more protective than usual during this period. You might engage in arguments with, or on behalf of, those closest to you.

Overall, the best period of the month for you is the 1-10, when life tends to flow smoothly without much in the way of opposition.

Highlights:

March 1-3 Operative energies include Mercury sextile Pluto, Venus sextile Chiron, Mars semi-square Jupiter. New information begins to come to light, and we have the power to heal our social relationships. Because this period occurs just before a lunar eclipse, hold off on finalizing any deals or plans if you can, however. But do pay attention to the information that surfaces now. For you, happy communications lift your spirits, and a partnership runs especially well.

March 1-2 Monthly career and reputation peak. Your credibility is important at this time of the lunar month, and efforts at self-promotion might be made now. This is the time when you're noticed for what you've done or haven't done. Do your best to be in top form, make career adjustments if needed, and don't be afraid to show others exactly what you're made of. You're at your best when you are showing the world your practical, competent, and responsible side.

March 3 Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Virgo in your solar eleventh house. Flaws in an important system in your life come to light. The effects of this eclipse last for six months. You've been focusing on what brings you pleasure—your hobbies, romantic activities, and so forth. Now you realize that the role you play in others' lives (as a spouse, parent, friend) is an important element in your overall happiness. You're looking for validation from friends and group activities now. You may be called upon to perform a humanitarian gesture. For example, a friend may experience a little crisis and asks for your help. You may suddenly find yourself around many people, perhaps after a period of relative solitude or private time.

March 4-5 The Sun conjuncts Uranus in your solar fifth house. Personal inhibitions and social conventions which in the past may have restricted your self-expression or creativity are now shed. You are much more willing to experiment and take chances, to try new things, and to be a little wild. If you are artistically or creatively inclined, you'll discover a fresh approach or technique which may radically alter your work, and you'll have bursts of sudden inspiration and intense activity. Unusual, exciting romantic scenarios are quite possible now.

March 8-9 Operative energies include Venus trine Jupiter and Saturn, Venus sextile Neptune, and Sun square Jupiter. This is an especially strong influence for creative output and is also excellent for cementing relationships. Because the grand trine affects your houses of substance, it's strong for practical affairs, work, and especially finances.

March 8-9 Your Personal New Moon. A new personal cycle begins for you, and you feel fresh and re-energized. It's all about you now, so it's time to put your best foot forward. A blast of personal energy comes your way, and showing your leadership skills works for you now. You are at your most convincing, as others are accepting you at face value. Some people find that the Moon in their sign brings with it a restless, discontented, and emotional state, and that there is more on their plate than they expected or wanted. If this is the case for you, remember that these feelings are there because you need to make a change, however big or small. Use it to stimulate activity and positive change.

March 10-11 Monthly money and income peak. You're looking at the world in terms of value and worth now, and what you have (or don't have) is on your mind. Money issues pop up now—the discovery of a way to increase your income, an unexpected gift or reward, or a brief and tiny financial crisis that motivates you to find new ways to make money are possible.

March 15-16 Operative energies include Mars conjunct Chiron, Mercury sextile Venus, and Venus trine Pluto. Gaining new perspectives on romantic and sexual relationships, or on creative projects, occurs now. We seek out others, but won't settle for superficial connections. This can be a time of epiphanies and release of suppressed energies. Important contracts and new beginnings, however, are best avoided until after the Solar Eclipse on the 18th.

March 18-19 Romance and pleasure are highlights right now with the Moon in your solar fifth. The Moon is in your element, and so are you! The flowing, expressive, and spontaneous energy surrounding you attracts like-minded (and hearted) people. Be sure to take time to enjoy yourself, preferably around others! Keywords: romance, creativity, spontaneity, pleasure, self-expression.

March 18 New Moon Solar Eclipse in late Pisces in your solar fifth house affects you for the next six months. A time to focus on goals involving compassion, letting go of the past, and acceptance. Nagging problems from the past six months need to be dealt with and put behind you. Creative self-expression comes under the realm of the fifth house, and a New Moon occurring here sparks the creative juices. Romantic inclinations are also highlighted, as are any kind of celebratory, playful, and just-for-fun endeavors. You will be especially aware of your need for approval and feedback from others, deriving pleasure from the ways your own creativity impact the world around you. This can be a passionate time for you, and a time when you might feel more bold than usual. If you are feeling good about yourself, and especially if you have taken advantage of the time for re-building of confidence that the New Moon in the fourth house brought, you will fairly radiate during this expressive period. 

March 22-25 A mixed bag of energies operant now brings challenges as well as enlightenment. Mars in your eleventh house opposes Saturn, sextiles Jupiter, and conjuncts Neptune.

March 22-23 Your partnerships are highlighted right now, and it's time to compromise. Insecurities in your partnerships are brought to light now, and the best way to handle this is to understand that you need others instead of competing for the floor. Some people find this time of the lunar month an energy sapper, as they feel ignored or unnoticed. Trying to go it alone won't work just now. The spotlight is on other people for the time being, and it's best to let them shine. Concentrate on truly listening to those close to you, and on playing a supportive role. Perhaps not a time to be make a presentation or to come on strong to the world. You are feeling reflective rather than expressive.

March 28-29 Venus forms tense angles to Chiron and Pluto. This is a less than ideal period for financial transactions and for social relationships. Tensions derived from lack of trust are likely now. Challenges involving intimacy and trust issues in close partnerships could be part of the picture for you during this period.

March 28-29 Monthly career and reputation peak. Your credibility is important at this time of the lunar month, and efforts at self-promotion might be made now. This is the time when you're noticed for what you've done or haven't done. Do your best to be in top form, make career adjustments if needed, and don't be afraid to show others exactly what you're made of. You're at your best when you are showing the world your practical, competent, and responsible side.

Scorpio (Born November 3 to 12) and Scorpio Ascendant from 10 to 20 degrees Scorpio:

February 2007: Scorpio Horoscope: Love, Career, & General Trends
 

February

scorpio the scorpionOverview. All month, the Sun illuminates your solar fourth house, spotlighting your house of family and home. These areas are your instinctive focus during this period. Your family, home, property concerns, roots, and heritage come into focus and become a source of pride. You are likely quite preoccupied with feelings of security and your inner experiences. This is a time when you send down roots and seek a feeling of belonging. You could be thrust into a position of leadership on the home front. Ego confrontations with family members are possible now, but the best way to handle this energy is to do your best to strengthen your relationship to your family and your home base. This is a time to do what you can to build trust in your family life and a strong foundation within yourself, so that regardless of what you meet in the outside world over the next months, you have a secure place to return to. Besides spending more time tending to domestic affairs, the focus can be on cultivating and nourishing your inner foundations that support you and your growth. This is a time to collect yourself--to fill your well, so to speak.

Although your heart is with your home now, developments in your career could conflict with your personal plans around the 10th. A romantic attraction or an unexpected chance to have a great time invigorates you around the 7th. Watch your pocketbook--you could be feeling so good that you temporarily forget that there will be bills to pay next month! This is an excellent time to work on intellectual tasks with more vigor and passion. There isn’t a project or task that you can’t master in February.

This month, Mercury retrogrades from the 13th forward (until March 7th). Mercury retrograde cycles are periods in which communications and transportation matters don't go as smoothly as usual. All Mercury retrograde cycles particularly affect you in terms of communications with friends or groups, as well as intimate communications and shared financial resources, because Mercury rules these areas of your life.
Occurring in your solar fourth house this time, extra care should be exercised when it comes to family relations. Be as non-judgmental as you can with family members. New initiatives surrounding home and property are best left for a better time. It would be wise to be especially clear when it comes to communicating with friends, groups, intimate partners, and family members, or take this time to re-examine issues rather than communicating about them prematurely.

Your ruler, Pluto, forms some pleasing connections with Mercury and the Sun this month on the 1 and 16-17. These represent opportunity periods for you. The 1st is a period in which you are able to communicate with increased influence. It's also a strong period for financial matters. On the 16-17, you are recognized for your leadership skills. Red flag periods--times when you are not received as well as you would like, or are prone to impulsive, hasty, or ill-timed behavior--occur on the 2 and 19-20. These issues may revolve around home, family, and romance--matters that certainly grab much of your attention in February. You may feel unappreciated on the 19-20.

Opportunity periods for personal finances occur on the 1-4 especially as well as the 17-18. Speculation and new financial initiatives are best avoided on the 8-9 and 28.

As far as romantic and creative matters go, opportunities to enhance or attract romance occur on the 7-8. These represent power days for personal magnetism, charisma, and creativity. Issues that could be annoying or disconcerting concerning romantic matters are more likely to occur on the 25 and 27-28. These would be less than ideal days to go on a first date, for example. For more serious partnerships, long-term relationships tend to thrive on the 1, 7, and 12-13. Tensions in close partnerships are more likely on the 9, 14, 18-20, and 24-25.

Better times to schedule job interviews or health appointments, and for success and happiness on the job, occur on the 2-4 and 12-13. Red flag periods for these matters occur on the 14, 17, 23-24, and 28, when you should probably avoid scheduling health appointments or job interviews if feasible. Career and reputation matters run especially well on the 3-4, 7-8, and particularly the 16-19, when some form of recognition is likely. Challenges with these matters are more likely on the 2 and 10, when you may not be seen in an especially favorable light by superiors or the public.

Venus transits your fifth house from the 5th. This is an expressive period for the goddess of love! It's natural for you to turn on the charm without even lifting a finger. You are especially attracted to aesthetic forms of recreation. You feel a little more playful now, and love matters tend to be laced with a touch of drama. That shouldn't be a problem--in fact, you kind of like it that way for the time being. More loving and appreciative relationships with your children may also figure now. Your powers of attraction skyrocket during this cycle. Yet, you are not aggressive in your approach to love. Instead, you attract more if you allow yourself to be pursued during this cycle. Creative self-expression of any kind is favored at this time. At this time, you instinctively know how to place yourself in the best light in order to make a good impression on others. Any love affair begun now will be characterized by good cheer, having fun, and a fair share of emotional drama!

Mercury moves through your solar fourth house all month. This is a time when you can enjoy increased powers of concentration. You may require solitude in order to get mental work done during this cycle. Your memory is more retentive than usual, and your thoughts often turn to personal matters, family, and loved ones. You might particularly enjoy discussions about your early life, the past, or family matters during this cycle. In fact, it's a great time to open up conversations with loved ones, as you are more rational when it comes to personal matters now. Your mind often wanders to domestic concerns, and issues surrounding your home, family, and personal past. On the other hand, this transit sometimes indicates an especially busy, and perhaps hectic, period on the domestic scene. For example, you might take home work or find that people drop by your home often during this cycle. Do be more cautious with your communications and with these matters while Mercury is retrograde from the 13th through to March 7th, however. Be as clear as you can to avoid misunderstandings.

Mars energizes your solar third house all month. You are likely to have many ideas and plans going during this transit, and you might be inclined to scatter your energies as a result. Channeled well, this is a good time to sell your ideas to others, or to present your case. You may be especially busy running errands and communicating with others. More articulate than usual, you may also have a more assertive, self-centered, or provocative communication style at this time. As such, discussions may become heated, or they may escalate into arguments, more easily. If this is the case, it's likely because you are taking things very personally right now, or because you are over-identifying with your beliefs and ideas. A tendency to be impatient or impulsive while driving or while performing manual tasks, generally with the hands, may lead to accidents, so it's wise to be careful on the road or while operating machinery or even using scissors! This is an excellent time to work on intellectual tasks with more vigor and passion.

Overall, the best period of the month for you is the 1-13, when your natural charm is well-received and you feel energetically supported by others and by life's circumstances. It's easier than usual to assert yourself without making waves.

Highlights:

February 2 Full Moon in Leo in your solar tenth house. You are suddenly in the limelight—everyone notices you now. It's time to put your best foot forward, but be sure to do so with grace and consideration for others, or you may just make a display that you regret later. Perhaps you've been hiding yourself away, taking it easy. Now you need a little attention, and career matters come to a head. You're called to perform, perhaps on a moment's notice, and it's best to keep your cool and do whatever you can to show your competence. A sudden job opportunity, or some form of assistance with regards to career, home, or property matters, could be part of the picture. This can also produce an event that requires you to take charge and show your responsible side.

February 2-3 Monthly career and reputation peak. Your credibility is important at this time of the lunar month, and efforts at self-promotion might be made now. This is the time when you're noticed for what you've done or haven't done. Do your best to be in top form, make career adjustments if needed, and don't be afraid to show others exactly what you're made of. You're at your best when you are showing the world your practical, competent, and responsible side.

February 3-4 The Sun sextiles Jupiter and Mars sextiles Uranus. This is a strong period for learning, growth, advancement, and adventurous activities. It's favorable for marketing, publishing, and advertising, as well as any self-promotion activities. We may be especially sociable, tolerant, and generous. Confidence comes from a stronger sense of who we are and the principles we represent, as well as an ability to take healthy and reasonable risks.

February 7-8 The Sun conjuncts Neptune and Venus conjuncts Uranus. This is a "make a wish" day. Spiritual goals come into focus. As well, bringing a spirit of friendship and freedom into close personal relationships is featured. Unexpected events and/or synchronicities occur now in your romantic relationships and in your domestic affairs.

February 9-10 Your Personal New Moon. A new personal cycle begins for you, and you feel fresh and re-energized. It's all about you now, so it's time to put your best foot forward. A blast of personal energy comes your way, and showing your leadership skills works for you now. You are at your most convincing, as others are accepting you at face value. Some people find that the Moon in their sign brings with it a restless, discontented, and emotional state, and that there is more on their plate than they expected or wanted. If this is the case for you, remember that these feelings are there because you need to make a change, however big or small. Use it to stimulate activity and positive change.

February 10 The Sun in your fourth house opposes Saturn in your tenth house. Restrictions and pressures may be felt now revolving around your professional affairs. Feeling bogged down by these pressures is possible, affecting your home life. Avoid new initiatives now if you can.

February 12-13 Monthly money and income peak. You're looking at the world in terms of value and worth now, and what you have (or don't have) is on your mind. Money issues pop up now—the discovery of a way to increase your income, an unexpected gift or reward, or a brief and tiny financial crisis that motivates you to find new ways to make money are possible.

February 18 New Moon in late Aquarius in your solar fourth house affects you until the next New Moon. A time to focus on goals involving friendships, long-term happiness, dreams, and wishes. Home and family may be a focus during this phase. On a personal, developmental level, this is a time to not only listen to what is in your gut, but to pay homage to those feelings! What makes you feel safe and secure? This is the time to explore and develop a sense of inner security. Although the fourth house is associated with the home, it is an angular, cardinal house that stirs up activity. This is a time of re-organization and heightened awareness of your roots, issues of intimacy and vulnerability, and it's an excellent time to come in touch with your feelings and needs. Focusing on your support system and the manner in which you support others is also probable. This is a good time to make long-range plans for the future, to do any type of re-organizing or even re-modeling of the home or home environment, and for family-related activities.

February 18-19 Romance and pleasure are highlights right now with the Moon in your solar fifth. The Moon is in your element, and so are you! The flowing, expressive, and spontaneous energy surrounding you attracts like-minded (and hearted) people. Be sure to take time to enjoy yourself, preferably around others! Keywords: romance, creativity, spontaneity, pleasure, self-expression.

February 22-23 Your partnerships are highlighted right now, and it's time to compromise. Insecurities in your partnerships are brought to light now, and the best way to handle this is to understand that you need others instead of competing for the floor. Some people find this time of the lunar month an energy sapper, as they feel ignored or unnoticed. Trying to go it alone won't work just now. The spotlight is on other people for the time being, and it's best to let them shine. Concentrate on truly listening to those close to you, and on playing a supportive role. Perhaps not a time to be make a presentation or to come on strong to the world. You are feeling reflective rather than expressive.

February 24-25 Tense angles operant now include Mars-Uranus, Venus-Neptune, and Venus-Saturn. Relations are likely to be tense. Disillusionments with finances as well as personal relationships are possible. Reckless behavior has consequences. For you, this is a period in which disappointments, misunderstandings, and tense relations with a close partner are possible. You are inclined towards impulsive behavior.

Scorpio (Born November 3 to 12) and Scorpio Ascendant from 10 to 20 degrees Scorpio:

January 2007: Scorpio Horoscope: Love, Career, & General Trends
 

January

scorpio the scorpionOverview. All month, the Sun highlights your solar third house--a time of the year in which you are most likely to be a "busy bee". You are exploring and searching now, making connections, and paying attention to your immediate environment. Social interaction is emphasized during this period, and is for the most part light-hearted. Give other people a little extra time and attention, notice their efforts on your behalf, and strengthen your connections. You are more curious and alert than usual, and you could be quite busy with errands, paperwork, phone calls, and light socializing. Much energy is expended in understanding and adapting to your immediate environment. Siblings, neighbors, close relatives, friends, and co-workers may play a more important role than usual in your life during this cycle. You are more interested in exploring your own neighborhood than you are a different country. This is not a time of big adventure-seeking. Rather, it's a time of little adventures close to home. Neither is this a time when you are especially focused. In fact, you could have a finger in many pies right now. You are especially resourceful now, and you could find yourself enjoying (or seeking) attention for your intellectual know-how. The ability to express and communicate your ideas is extremely important to you at this time. You are eager to investigate new things, whether scientific or technical.

Errands, paperwork, and short trips are bound to keep you on your toes this month. A close partnership stabilizes--you can count on your special someone to keep life easygoing and secure. Finances are especially strong, particularly around the 12th and 22nd, when opportunities to increase your cash flow could arise, seemingly from out of the blue. A burst of energy and confidence is with you around the 13th. Apply it to a constructive pursuit and focus on one important endeavor rather than scattering your energy. Sometimes less is more!

This month, the first of three Jupiter-Uranus squares occurs, placing some tension between your second and fifth houses, from now through October. You may experience some conflicts between your desire for security and a stable income and your needs for entertainment and pleasure, or possibly your romantic life. Expanding your personal resources is important to you now, and so is taking a few risks and enjoying your bounty! It can be challenging to accommodate both needs at once. As well, excitement in your romantic and social life may distract you from increasing your earning power. Try not to instigate change just for the sake of change, and avoid rash behavior. On the other hand, if you look for opportunities, you have more confidence and faith now to do something totally different, and inspiration may be found now. But do avoid blowing off responsibilities while you pursue your new vision.

This month, the Sun, Venus, and Mercury align with Chiron just behind your solar fourth house. You may enjoy key opportunity periods that allow you to improve your home and family life, and do wonders for your basic sense of security and ties to important people in your life, particularly if they are in need of some healing. The key now is confidence and not overstating yourself.

Your ruler, Pluto, makes a powerful connection to Mars on the 12-14, representing a strong opportunity period for you, particularly for energy levels, work and health matters, and personal finances. Other opportunity periods include the 18-20 and 25-26 when you enjoy special charm, the power of negotiation, and opportunities to enhance or attract a close partnership. Other good periods for furthering your goals are from the 8-9 and 31. Red flag periods--times when you are not received as well as you would like, or are prone to impulsive, hasty, or ill-timed behavior--occur on the 22, and 29-30.

Better periods for personal finances occur on the 1, 4-6, and 11. Speculation and new financial initiatives are best avoided on the 12 and 15-17. Speculation is likely a strong urge this month with Mars transiting your second house.

Opportunities to enhance or attract romance occur on the 1, 18-19, and 26. These periods represent power days for personal magnetism, charisma, and creativity. Small issues that could be annoying or disconcerting concerning romantic matters are more likely to occur on the 12 and 21-22. These would be less than ideal days to go on a first date, for example. For more serious partnerships, long-term relationships tend to thrive on the 4-6, 10-12 (especially strong), 18-19, 25-26, and 29-31. Tensions in close partnerships are more likely on the 14-15 and 22.

Better times to schedule job interviews or health appointments, and for success and happiness on the job, occur on the 1-4, 8-9, and 12-13. Red flag periods for these matters occur on the 6-7, 20-22, 26-27, and 29-30, when you should probably avoid scheduling health appointments or job interviews if feasible. Career and reputation matters run more smoothly on the 1-2, 5-8, and especially the 29-30; and they more easily run into snags on the 14-18.

Venus transits your solar third house until the 12th. You are mostly cheerful in your approach to others, and perhaps somewhat intellectual, during this transit. Essentially, you are quite companionable now. You enjoy talking about what interests you, and you find great value in the exchange of ideas. Sometimes this transit brings benefit through siblings, communications, or short trips. During this period, you are most attracted to wit, cheerfulness, and verbal rapport. You are especially good at mediating conflicts. Smoothing over differences using your diplomacy skills figures now.

From the 12th, Venus moves through your solar fourth house. During this cycle, you are especially fond of the life of the home and family. You are more receptive and gentle on a romantic level, and tend to be sentimental or nostalgic now. You may particularly value the aesthetics in and around your home during this period. If things are out of whack on the home front, you will do whatever you can to create a peaceful and stable atmosphere. Loyalty and sensitivity in your relationships are more important to you than typically. You might focus on ways to earn money in or from your home. This is a calming influence--a time when simple pleasures most appeal.

Mercury transits your solar third house from the 3-21. Mercury is right at home in the third house, and offers a natural curiosity, facility with words, and the ability to multi-task successfully. More time spent on the phone, writing emails, in the car making short frequent trips, chatting, running errands, communicating with neighbors and siblings, visiting friends and relatives, and doing paperwork is likely now. There can also be a tendency to fuss over insignificant matters now, however. Also, "information overload" is also a possibility. This may be a busy time with neighbors, classmates, siblings, and community affairs. Your interests are especially varied now, and perhaps scattered. It's an ideal time to pick up information from your environment and the people in it, as your tendency is toward a certain level of intellectual detachment just now. Your mind is often distracted, particularly when circumstances call for you to stick to routine, so this is not the best transit for focusing on one task or project. Your mind is especially inquisitive during this cycle, when learning, short trips, and other forms of communication and making connections, appeal strongly. Some are fidgety or nervous during this cycle, perhaps due to increased errand-running, phone calls, and the like. Others enjoy the challenge of tackling a variety of subjects. As well, talking, writing, and studying can be good ways to handle stress.

Mercury is in your solar fourth house from the 21st. This is a time when you can enjoy increased powers of concentration. You may require solitude in order to get mental work done during this cycle. Your memory is more retentive than usual, and your thoughts often turn to personal matters, family, and loved ones. You might particularly enjoy discussions about your early life, the past, or family matters during this cycle. In fact, it's a great time to open up conversations with loved ones, as you are more rational when it comes to personal matters now. Your mind often wanders to domestic concerns, and issues surrounding your home, family, and personal past. On the other hand, this transit sometimes indicates an especially busy, and perhaps hectic, period on the domestic scene. For example, you might take home work or find that people drop by your home often during this cycle.

All month, Mars energizes your solar second house. You have more energy at your disposal to make money, but also to defend your values. This can be a very resourceful time, when you make the most of what you have. You have much energy for new money-making projects, or for stepping up existing ones. You may be over-identifying with what you have and own, and you could be trying to prove yourself (your worth) to others using money and possessions as the means to do so. If conflicts occur during this transit, they are likely to be over issues of ownership. This is a time when impulse buying is at a peak. You probably should avoid using credit right now, simply because your spending habits may be excessive and impulsive.

Overall, the best period of the month for you is the 1-10, when matters tend to run smoothly and your ideas are especially well-received.

Highlights:

January 1-2 Jupiter sextiles Chiron, the Sun sextiles Uranus, and Mars sextiles Neptune. This is a creative period for all--one in which we can find new insights into old problems. Willingness to embrace change is the key to success now. With your co-ruler involved, there may be some interesting synchronicities in your life now. This is also a strong period for financial as well as career and reputation matters.

January 3 Full Moon in Cancer in your solar ninth house. Some sort of fulfillment, culmination, or revelation regarding your desires or new initiatives at the last New Moon on December 20th occurs now. Your attention to the logical world of reason has been a focus in the last two weeks. Now you feel a crisis of lack. Your personal beliefs may be tested now. Your impulses and faith matter, and all of the attention you've been giving to mundane affairs has you wondering when you're going to have some fun. You want to take a leap of faith now. Your adventurous side pushes up and out, demanding attention.

January 5-6 Monthly career and reputation peak. Your credibility is important at this time of the lunar month, and efforts at self-promotion might be made now. This is the time when you're noticed for what you've done or haven't done. Do your best to be in top form, make career adjustments if needed, and don't be afraid to show others exactly what you're made of. You're at your best when you are showing the world your practical, competent, and responsible side.

January 6-8 The Sun and Mercury align and Mars trines Saturn. These planetary influences suggest rational, logical, and productive energy. We are actively communicating, and our work takes on definite shape. This is a good time to temper our energy and to exercise better judgment. Traditional methods work, and thoroughness brings rewards. For you, solidifying a work project, or increased responsibilities that give you a healthy sense of purpose on the job, may be in store now. You may be feeling especially strong financially and in your career. This is a good time for all communication matters, and a busy time for worldly affairs. You may be called upon to speak or write in an official manner.

January 10-12 Venus joins with Chiron and sextiles Jupiter. This is a healing and friendly energy--an excellent time to socialize, promote cooperation, spend time with romantic partners, and to initiate a new relationship or friendship. It's also very strong for financial matters. For you, this is a strong opportunity period for negotiations as well as for close partnerships and family matters. It's also a powerful time for personal finances.

January 13-14 Your Personal New Moon. A new personal cycle begins for you, and you feel fresh and re-energized. It's all about you now, so it's time to put your best foot forward. A blast of personal energy comes your way, and showing your leadership skills works for you now. You are at your most convincing, as others are accepting you at face value. Some people find that the Moon in their sign brings with it a restless, discontented, and emotional state, and that there is more on their plate than they expected or wanted. If this is the case for you, remember that these feelings are there because you need to make a change, however big or small. Use it to stimulate activity and positive change.

January 13-14 Mars joins with Pluto and Venus semi-squares both planets; Mercury semi-squares Uranus. Keywords for this period include intense, passionate, rebellious, and obsessive! Tense interplays between lovers are quite likely now, and the inclination to rebel against routine or expectations is strong. Harness the energy of Mars-Pluto by pouring your energy into a pet project. Sexual relations now can be very intense. Competitive energy is powerful. For you, this is a high-energy period in which you may be inclined towards impulsive actions. It's a good time to throw yourself into your work. With your money sector stimulated, you could come up with a new money-making idea now.

January 15-16 Monthly money and income peak. You're looking at the world in terms of value and worth now, and what you have (or don't have) is on your mind. Money issues pop up now—the discovery of a way to increase your income, an unexpected gift or reward, or a brief and tiny financial crisis that motivates you to find new ways to make money are possible.

January 18 New Moon in late Capricorn in your solar third house affects you until the next New Moon. A time to focus on long-term goals and projects and to formulate career and business plans. The third house rules our communication skills, learning, methods, daily interactions and contact, and general "busy-ness". This is a favorable time for learning something new, feeling at ease in social situations, taking care of the details of daily life, and developing a mental rapport with others. It is a time when you will be more aware of your environment, and when you experience increased alertness. It's a good time to take tests, fill out forms, start a new course, write letters, make phone calls, and take care of daily tasks with energy.

January 18-20 Venus joins with Neptune and Mercury conjoins Chiron. This can be a very romantic time, although the tendency can be towards seeing what we want to see rather than what is, so romantic mirages are possible now. Kind, healing words and communications are also featured now. A good time to discover new or alternative health procedures and regimes. Soft, pleasant energy dominates. For you, this is a romantic time for a close partnership. Family connections are also idyllic now. An important conversation or communication from a friend or intimate partner can come now.

January 22-23 Romance and pleasure are highlights right now with the Moon in your solar fifth. The Moon is in your element, and so are you! The flowing, expressive, and spontaneous energy surrounding you attracts like-minded (and hearted) people. Be sure to take time to enjoy yourself, preferably around others! Keywords: romance, creativity, spontaneity, pleasure, self-expression.

January 25-26 Venus sextiles Pluto and Mercury aligns with Neptune. An excellent period for romantic and artistic expression. However, don't expect communications to be right-brain, logical, or clear! It's best to delay important decisions. A good period for romance and dreamy conversations. For you, this is a period of attraction--you tend to receive good things now, whether they come to you through invitations, compliments, or material goods. A surprising conversation with a family member or about domestic matters could be part of the picture. This is an excellent period for strengthening or attracting a close partnership.

January 26-27 Your partnerships are highlighted right now, and it's time to compromise. Insecurities in your partnerships are brought to light now, and the best way to handle this is to understand that you need others instead of competing for the floor. Some people find this time of the lunar month an energy sapper, as they feel ignored or unnoticed. Trying to go it alone won't work just now. The spotlight is on other people for the time being, and it's best to let them shine. Concentrate on truly listening to those close to you, and on playing a supportive role. Perhaps not a time to be make a presentation or to come on strong to the world. You are feeling reflective rather than expressive.

January 27-28 Mercury and Mars form challenging angles to Saturn. This can be a tense period in which hitting brick walls is likely. Delay important discussions and avoid beginning new projects, which could be riddled with frustrations and complications down the road.

January 30-31 The Sun joins Chiron and Mercury sextiles Pluto. An excellent period for coming up with innovative new techniques, socializing, and gaining perspective on our long-term goals. It's easy to resolve problems, particularly old, nagging ones, and to cooperate with others in a balanced manner. This is an especially strong period for you for mental tasks and communications. Your ideas are received especially well.

December 2007: Scorpio Horoscope: Love, Career, & General Trends
 

December

 

scorpio the scorpionOverview.

Until the 12th, the Sun illuminates your first house, bringing issues surrounding your personal identity, appearance, outward behavior, and self-expression to the forefront. Spontaneity of expression is what this transit is about. Increased energy and a renewed feeling of confidence is with you now, so take advantage. It's a great period for doing something entirely new and pioneering—to go solo in some area of your life. You are in the position to make an impression on others. You have presence and you project confidence.

The Sun highlights your second house from the 12th, and your focus is on material affairs and comfort issues. Security is a driving force for you right now, and you might find that you are especially interested in accumulating possessions. What you have and what you don't have come into focus--what makes you feel comfortable, your sense of security, and what you value. This is the time of year when personal finances and possessions receive maximum attention. Pour your energy into your work and your finances, and you might just be able to take your ideas to the bank. Extravagance with your pocketbook is something you may want to look out for, however. If you find yourself itching to make unnecessary purchases, know that at the root of this urge is the desire to pamper and comfort yourself. Nothing wrong with it, but there are inexpensive (and even free) ways to make yourself feel good. This is not the most eventful time of year for you. You are more inclined to dig your heels in and hang on to what makes you feel most secure than to take big risks. 

A strong financial month is in store for you, dear Scorpio. Monetary problems from the past may clear up, especially in the first three weeks of December. A major purchase or sale is very possible. A significant gift or bonus could also come your way. This is a good time to rally for a raise, apply for a loan, or take part in various dealings with financial institutions. You may need to curb an inclination to overspend--feeling good could bring you to the stores as you temporarily forget about the future!

Jupiter joins with Pluto in late Sagittarius before entering Capricorn on the 18th (Pluto will follow suit in January). This alignment represents a culmination of matters in the area of our charts in which it occurs. Jupiter and Pluto have been working through this sector for some time now, re-working your attitude towards these areas of your life. An increased need for shared interests with others, as well as for adventurous or risky undertakings, is with us now as we strive for more personal significance. Benefits may come through those in authority or the government. This can be an ambitious time when a desire for success is especially strong. The ability to sway or persuade can be enhanced. One of the most positive uses of this transit is a drive to better ourselves. We might solve a problem that has been in existence for some time, or capitalize upon a resource that was previously hidden. Social or material goals may come into strong focus, and reform could figure now. Our faith may be reborn or developed strongly. We might decide to invest our time and energy (and possibly money) into an ambitious new project. We should take advantage of the increased drive this transit brings, but avoid tendencies towards self-righteousness, exaggeration, and obsession. This transit generally favors big business, the law, grants, taxes, education, and commerce. Increased influence, faith, and insight are likely now. For you, personal income and possessions, as well as feelings of comfort and security, are in focus and strong. Now is the time to take these matters to a new level. Grab--and make--opportunities in these areas of life.

Jupiter entering earthy Capricorn this month doesn't yet place Jupiter in your communications sector, and thus its influence is very subtle for you for the time being. Jupiter changes sign approximately once a year, so this ingress is significant and represents a new shift of energy that will stay with us until January 2009. Jupiter does not officially move into your solar third house until April 2008. Until April 2008, Jupiter continues to transit your second house, and promises a profitable and productive year. You feel confident and enthusiastic about your ability to earn a living, and you may wish to further develop your talents and abilities in order to boost your earning power. Your income is likely to increase, and there may be an opportunity to improve your future financial situation. Monetary problems from the past may clear up at this time. You can add to your possessions, and a major purchase or sale is possible. A significant gift or bonus may come your way. This is a good time to seek a raise, apply for a loan, or deal with financial institutions. Avoid the pitfalls of overspending and conspicuous consumption. Career or investment interests may pay off handsomely, but overspending is a pitfall. These positive circumstances won't necessarily fall into your lap, and are unlikely to come all at once. You need to keep your eyes open for opportunities in these areas of life.

Mars continues to retrograde this month (all month). This retrograde period extends to January 30th, 2008. Even though the retrograde period officially lasts from November 15/07-January 30/08, the retrograde "zone" is in effect from September 16/07-April 4/08. For you, enthusiasm for intimate and sharing matters in general may wane, perhaps due to some problems or setbacks in these areas of life. Intimate matters may become more intense and complicated. Joint financial projects or initiatives may stall, or you could find that you are less confident about expressing yourself in personal ways. A lover or yourself may especially intense or obsessive. Refocus, backtracking, and review become necessary and recommended now.

Until the 22nd, Venus continues to move through your privacy sector. Matters of the heart touch you deeply. You may willingly play a supportive role to a partner, offering him or her more compassion and selfless love. If a romance were to begin during this period, it would likely be a private or even secret one. What you don't know might just be helping you right now, because what's happening behind your back is moving in your favor and all will come out happily when your dreams become a reality soon enough.

Venus warms your solar first house from the 22nd. The benefits of this position are the strongest from the 22-30, when Venus is directly on your Sun. You could find it hard to deny yourself anything during this cycle! This is a time when you naturally let loose your softer, receptive side. Romantic matters, as well as pleasure-seeking activities, come to the fore now. You are more likely to pay closer attention to your physical appearance and mannerisms, aiming to improve and enhance your attractiveness. Others find you agreeable and cooperative.

Mercury continues to transit your solar first house until the 14th. This is a cycle in which you tend to talk more readily, particularly about your own personal likes and dislikes or your personal past. Your demeanor is light-hearted and curious, and others might turn to you for advice, as you appear to be more rational than usual. This is the time of year when you can most easily use the power of words to attract what you want for yourself.

From the 14th, Mercury working through your solar second house suggests that this is a strong period for analyzing your cash flow, income, and earning power. You are more practical and rational in your approach to finances now. With your conscious mind focused on money and possessions, as well as personal values, this can be a strong period for gathering new money-making ideas. Alternatively, it could be a time when you tend to fret over your finances. Conversations tend to be practical rather than frivolous now. Financial gain may come through communications.

Mars energizes your solar eighth house all month. Note that Mars will be activating and re-activating a small area our charts until April 2008 due to its retrograde cycle. During this cycle, your energy is channeled through deep but easily aroused emotions and/or a strong sex drive. This can also express itself through an active interest in big business, finance, and investing. You tend to act on instinct now. Challenges with these areas of life are more likely while Mars is retrograde, however, all month and extending into the new year. Your focus remains in these areas of life, but caution and perhaps anxiety or confusion begin to dominate. You might feel less confident or you could simply feel more cautious now.

Highlights:

November 30-December 1 Sun squares Saturn. Pushing forward aggressively simply doesn't work now. Delays or setbacks are likely, but are reminders that sometimes we need to slow down and regroup. For you, this can be a potentially challenging time for communications (misunderstandings or frustrating news could figure) and for career matters. Increased responsibilities could feel temporarily overwhelming. Avoid confrontations with authority.

December 2-4 Venus sextiles Jupiter and Pluto; and the Sun sextiles Chiron. A sense of meaning and purposefulness imbues our relationships now. Confidence is strong. For you, partnering is especially strong and agreeable. Negotiations run very well. Money matters are also positive. You might receive a gift now. Career opportunities arise from humble confidence.

December 6-7 Mercury squares Saturn and the Sun squares Uranus. These are not ideal energies during which to push forward with new plans, simply because circumstances, or other people, are resistant and rebellious. For you, tension between professional and personal/family matters is likely to figure now. Some strain in a friendship is also possible.

December 7-8 Your Personal New Moon. A new personal cycle begins for you, and you feel fresh and re-energized. It's all about you now, so it's time to put your best foot forward. A blast of personal energy comes your way, and showing your leadership skills works for you now. You are at your most convincing, as others are accepting you at face value. Some people find that the Moon in their sign brings with it a restless, discontented, and emotional state, and that there is more on their plate than they expected or wanted. If this is the case for you, remember that these feelings are there because you need to make a change, however big or small. Use it to stimulate activity and positive change.

December 9 New Moon in Sagittarius in your solar first house affects you until January's New Moon. This New Moon placement is a powerful one—it's a time to reinvent yourself in some personal way, such as with a new look or manner of expressing and presenting yourself. This is a personally busy time of year, when you feel energetic and enthusiastic. Think about how you present yourself to others, focus on changing personal habits in such a way as to improve your confidence in yourself, and concentrate on putting your best foot forward, as this is a time when you will get noticed and make a personal impression on others. However, factor in the importance of authenticity in your presentation of yourself. You do not have to, of course, reveal all of yourself to others, but the sign of Aries associated with the first house reminds us of the importance of acting on our impulses and believing in ourselves. This is a time when you can be brave and enjoy new experiences.

December 10-11 Monthly money and income peak. You're looking at the world in terms of value and worth now, and what you have (or don't have) is on your mind. Money issues pop up now—the discovery of a way to increase your income, an unexpected gift or reward, or a brief and tiny financial crisis that motivates you to find new ways to make money are possible.

December 11-13 Jupiter conjuncts Pluto, Venus trines Mars, the Sun and Mercury sextile Neptune, and Venus sextiles Saturn. This is a very creative combination. Determination and drive are with us, as well as the chance to relate harmoniously to others. Imagination is also at a peak. For you, opportunities in matters related to money, security, and personal possessions arise now. It's a strong period for all personal initiatives and projects--launching a project dear to your heart can figure now. It's also an excellent time for career and work matters in general.

December 17-18 Romance and pleasure are highlights right now with the Moon in your solar fifth. The Moon is in your element, and so are you! The flowing, expressive, and spontaneous energy surrounding you attracts like-minded (and hearted) people. Be sure to take time to enjoy yourself, preferably around others! Keywords: romance, creativity, spontaneity, pleasure, self-expression.

December 19-20 Mercury conjuncts Jupiter and Pluto, and the Sun conjuncts Pluto. This is a period of intense discovery. New insights into old problems or new ideas altogether are found now and are likely to be very transformational (for some even life-changing).

December 21-22 Your partnerships are highlighted right now, and it's time to compromise. Insecurities in your partnerships are brought to light now, and the best way to handle this is to understand that you need others instead of competing for the floor. Some people find this time of the lunar month an energy sapper, as they feel ignored or unnoticed. Trying to go it alone won't work just now. The spotlight is on other people for the time being, and it's best to let them shine. Concentrate on truly listening to those close to you, and on playing a supportive role. Perhaps not a time to be make a presentation or to come on strong to the world. You are feeling reflective rather than expressive.

December 23 A Full Moon occurs today in early Cancer in your solar eighth house. This Full Moon is brimming with opportunities as it occurs at the same time as a conjunction between the Sun and Jupiter. This Full Moon is all about give and take. What makes you feel comfortable and secure needs to be balanced with attention to other people's needs and comfort levels. It's a good time to settle some of your debts, financial or otherwise. You may be in a position wherein you are forced to make a financial settlement or large outlay of cash; or, you may find that you are leaned upon for support, financial or otherwise.

December 27-28 Monthly career and reputation peak. Your credibility is important at this time of the lunar month, and efforts at self-promotion might be made now. This is the time when you're noticed for what you've done or haven't done. Do your best to be in top form, make career adjustments if needed, and don't be afraid to show others exactly what you're made of. You're at your best when you are showing the world your practical, competent, and responsible side.

November

 

scorpio the scorpionOverview.

Until the 12th, the Sun "hibernates" in your solar twelfth house. This is a time when you recharge your batteries, rest up, reflect, and perhaps close matters that have run their natural course. During this cycle, a sense of personal fulfillment is reinforced by resolving subconscious influences or matters from the past. You will instinctively withdraw from the hustle and bustle of daily life in an attempt to get to know yourself, your goals, and your needs better. This is an imaginative, perhaps dreamy, time of the year. Some may indulge in self-pity at this time, but as long as they pull strength from it, it might simply be a healthy process. You need time alone now in order to sort things out and to avoid overload!

The Sun illuminates your first house from the 12th, bringing issues surrounding your personal identity, appearance, outward behavior, and self-expression to the forefront. This marks the height of your physical solar cycle, and you are in the position to make an impression on others, and to assert your personal influence beyond its normal boundaries. Spontaneity of expression is what this transit is about. You are ready to put your past behind you and to start a new personal cycle. You have presence and you project confidence. Increased energy and a renewed feeling of confidence is with you now, so take advantage. It's a great month to do something entirely new and pioneering—to go solo in some area of your life. This particular season of the year smiles on your personal endeavors. This is a time when you more easily get in touch with a true sense of your identity and purpose. The most enterprising side of your nature pushes up and out, and it's time to seize opportunities. Problems in your life may be overcome by bravery, self-assertion, and directness. There's nothing wrong with a bit of self-centeredness during this cycle, but avoid taking it too far. It's not the best time for team work and other cooperative endeavors. The spotlight is on you and your ability to lead, so make it a good one! Take steps to improve how you come across to others. It's time to carve your own path in life.

A feeling that you have been missing important information, or that secrets have been kept from you, lifts this month and you are more confident about your perceptions and hunches. Love this month is privately delicious. Romantic secrets and sacrifices keep you feeling vital and irreplaceable. Career opportunities continue to seek you out. Friends are more demanding of your time, but increased social responsibilities make you feel needed! From the 15th, avoid making travel or educational plans--try to wrap these matters up in the first two weeks of November so as to avoid delays.

Mercury ends its retrograde period that occurred from October 11-November 1, picking up speed and "revisiting" some of the aspects it made to planets before and during the retrograde period. This gives us all a chance to get projects and communications back on track.

Mars, however, turns retrograde this month, on November 15th. This retrograde period extends to January 30th, 2008. Even though the retrograde period officially lasts from November 15/07-January 30/08, the retrograde "zone" is in effect from September 16/07-April 4/08. For you, enthusiasm for intimate and sharing matters in general may wane, perhaps due to some problems or setbacks in these areas of life. Intimate matters may become more intense and complicated. Joint financial projects or initiatives may stall, or you could find that you are less confident about expressing yourself in personal ways. A lover or yourself may especially intense or obsessive. Refocus, backtracking, and review become necessary and recommended now.

Your rulers, Pluto and Mars, form stimulating connections to Venus, the Sun, and Mercury this month on the 2-3, 8-9, 22, and 27, representing opportunity periods for you. The 2-3 and 22 are all excellent days for your powers of attraction. Venus receives and collects, and with your rulers in harmonious contact with Venus on these dates, it's a good time to charm, soothe, and receive. These dates are also strong for close partnerships, whether it's to attract one or to enhance an existing relationship. The 8-9 is strong for communicating your ideas and for hearing good news as well. On the 27th, career matters are swimming and earning admiration and respect comes easily. Red flag periods--times when you are not received as well as you would like, or are prone to impulsive, hasty, or ill-timed behavior--occur on the 4-6, 19-20, and 28, when you may feel neglected, slighted, or unappreciated. On the 4-6, career and partnering matters may be frustrating. In general, ego bruising or feeling slighted could figure now, and negotiations don't run especially well. The 19-20 could be quite stressful although very active. Others are cantankerous and you could be quite moody and impulsive. The 28th could be tense on a communications level. Misrepresentation is possible.

Opportunity periods for personal finances occur on the 19th. Speculation and new financial initiatives are best avoided on the 16-17, when financial decision-making is unclear.

As far as romantic and creative matters are concerned, opportunities to enhance or attract romance occur on the 4, 19, 25-26, and 29. These are power days for personal magnetism, charisma, and creativity. Issues that could be annoying or disconcerting concerning romantic matters are more likely to occur on the 11-12, 16, and 24. These would be less than ideal days to go on a first date, for example. With regard to your serious partnerships, long-term relationships tend to thrive on the 2, 18, and 25-27. Use these days for strengthening your connection or attracting a serious partnership. Tensions in close partnerships are more likely on the 4-6, 12, 19-20, and 29.

Better times to schedule job interviews or health appointments, and for success and happiness on the job, occur on the 2-4 and 27. Red flag periods for these matters occur on the 19-20 and 28, when you should probably avoid scheduling health appointments or job interviews if feasible. Matters related to your career and reputation tend to thrive on the 4, 7, 27, and 29. Challenges with these matters are more likely to occur on the 3, 5, 11, 19-21, and 30 when others, especially authority figures and the public, may not see you in the most favorable light!

Venus transits your solar eleventh house until the 26th. Forming harmonious, warm social friendships, possibly related to group activities within a club, can figure now. You may meet someone through such group activities; consequently, your interests will be shared. Whether or not you do, the bottom line is that sharing interests with someone is what makes you happy during this cycle. Venus here enlivens your friendships and group associations with charm and grace. You are more peace-loving than usual and slightly detached on a personal level. If a romance were to begin during this time frame, it would be characterized by a strong feeling of camaraderie, but it could also be rather impersonal and perhaps lacking in depth and intimacy.

Venus warms your solar twelfth house from the 26th. Venus is spending some time in "hibernation" in your privacy sector. Now, this doesn't necessarily mean that your love life is stagnant, but that your affection is expressed behind closed doors. Attraction to secrets and whispers characterize this period, although for some, it can also be a time of endings, relationship concerns, and wistfulness. Personal and social contacts may be secretive, and there can be secret love affairs, or at least very private love feelings and longings. Shyness can lead to some loneliness or romantic frustration. However, this can also be a deliciously private and intimate time.

Mercury continues to transit your solar twelfth house until the 25th. Your mind is focused on private matters and past issues. You're searching behind the curtain, and examining the past for answers. This is a good time for research, quiet contemplation, and meditation; but do avoid being dragged down by issues that have outgrown their worth and purpose. Examining the past in order to improve the future is certainly worthwhile, as long as you don't waste your energy on guilt.

Mercury transits your solar first house from the 25th. This is a period in which you are most inclined to speak up about matters that you previously were only mulling over. Your disposition is more intellectual than usual now, and self-expression comes easy. You are sharper than usual--more observant, and more inclined to "live in the head". Relationships with siblings, neighbors, classmates, and casual friends may become more prominent in your life now. It is likely that you will initiate discussions during this period, evaluate your appearance and the impact you have on those around you, and make contact with others rather than stay chained to any one place or activity. This is the time to be direct and to communicate your needs and interests. You are more inclined to talk about yourself and your personal past now. This may also be a restless time when it is difficult to turn the thinking process off when it would be better to relax! It is an especially fruitful time for any endeavor that requires dealing with words, ideas, and facts and figures. Your demeanor is more youthful, perhaps mischievous, lighthearted, and non-threatening so that others may be more inclined to turn to you for advice or pleasant conversation. Using the power of words to attract what you want or to further your interests works best for you now.

Mars continues to energize your solar eighth house all month. Note that Mars will be activating and re-activating a small area our charts until April 2008 due to its retrograde cycle. During this cycle, your energy is channeled through deep but easily aroused emotions and/or a strong sex drive. This can also express itself through an active interest in big business, finance, and investing. You tend to act on instinct now. Challenges with these areas of life are more likely while Mars is retrograde, however, beginning November 15th and extending into the new year. Your focus remains in these areas of life, but caution and perhaps anxiety or confusion begin to dominate. You might feel less confident or you could simply feel more cautious now.

Highlights:

October 31-November 2 Mercury stations and turns direct on November 1st. Holding off on important discussions, interviews, or contracts is probably wise right now, as thinking is foggy and misunderstandings are likely. As Mercury moves forward and regains speed over the next couple of weeks, we can more easily get projects off the ground.

November 3-4 Monthly career and reputation peak. Your credibility is important at this time of the lunar month, and efforts at self-promotion might be made now. This is the time when you're noticed for what you've done or haven't done. Do your best to be in top form, make career adjustments if needed, and don't be afraid to show others exactly what you're made of. You're at your best when you are showing the world your practical, competent, and responsible side.

November 3-6 Challenges and gains occur in the areas of personal initiatives, career, and professional activities for you now with the Sun and Venus in hard aspect to Chiron and Pluto and the Sun in flowing aspect to Mars. Problems encountered now can lead to greater insight and better conditions, however.

November 9 New Moon in Scorpio in your solar twelfth house affects you until December's New Moon. This is a period of review, letting go, and recharging one's spiritual and, in effect, physical "batteries". Focus, now, is on fulfillment through service, empathy, and awareness of other's needs; but it can also be a time of withdrawal and some sort of retreat in a social sense, depending on your personal and natural predisposition. Some kind of soul-searching is in order, and the urge to find some level of emotional peace of mind will be apparent. This is a more sensitive position of the New Moon, and it is best to find some sort of peace for the soul in preparation for the New Moon in the first house—a period that is more active and busy than this one. 

November 10-11 Your Personal New Moon. A new personal cycle begins for you, and you feel fresh and re-energized. It's all about you now, so it's time to put your best foot forward. A blast of personal energy comes your way, and showing your leadership skills works for you now. You are at your most convincing, as others are accepting you at face value. Some people find that the Moon in their sign brings with it a restless, discontented, and emotional state, and that there is more on their plate than they expected or wanted. If this is the case for you, remember that these feelings are there because you need to make a change, however big or small. Use it to stimulate activity and positive change.

November 11-12 Matters previously hidden may come to light now, and disappointments are possible, with Neptune in hard aspect to the Sun and Venus. Keep it simple. Avoid jumping to conclusions, and put off (if you can) major new initiatives for a more auspicious date. We are not seeing things clearly now. For you, challenges and increased activity in a romance, with your children if applicable, or concerning creative and recreational endeavors occur now. Deceptions or self-deceptions in a partnership or on the job can come to light now.

November 12-13 Monthly money and income peak. You're looking at the world in terms of value and worth now, and what you have (or don't have) is on your mind. Money issues pop up now—the discovery of a way to increase your income, an unexpected gift or reward, or a brief and tiny financial crisis that motivates you to find new ways to make money are possible.

November 14-16 Mars is stationary retrograde. See above Monthly Overview for details.

November 19-20 Romance and pleasure are highlights right now with the Moon in your solar fifth. The Moon is in your element, and so are you! The flowing, expressive, and spontaneous energy surrounding you attracts like-minded (and hearted) people. Be sure to take time to enjoy yourself, preferably around others! Keywords: romance, creativity, spontaneity, pleasure, self-expression.

November 24 A Full Moon occurs today in early Gemini in your solar seventh house. The New Moon was all about you. Now it's time to strike a balance with an "other". The seventh house represents an important one-to-one relationship--a marriage partner, significant other, business partner, or an adversary. It's time to strike a balance between your own needs and those of another. It's time to compromise and negotiate. Partnership "tests" are possible now, but so is a chance to truly connect to a special someone in your life.

November 24-25 Your partnerships are highlighted right now, and it's time to compromise. Insecurities in your partnerships are brought to light now, and the best way to handle this is to understand that you need others instead of competing for the floor. Some people find this time of the lunar month an energy sapper, as they feel ignored or unnoticed. Trying to go it alone won't work just now. The spotlight is on other people for the time being, and it's best to let them shine. Concentrate on truly listening to those close to you, and on playing a supportive role. Perhaps not a time to be make a presentation or to come on strong to the world. You are feeling reflective rather than expressive.

November 25-26 Venus trines Neptune. This is a strong period for compassionate understanding and generosity of spirit--when we are more able to rise above insecurities and selfishness in order to embrace others and life more peacefully. It can also be a romantic and creative period. For you, this can be a highly romantic time for a partnership, and a strong period for negotiating in general. Uncovering helpful information that was previously hidden or finding a lost item can also figure now. Romantic expression is strong now. Singles shouldn't hide away.

November 30-December 1 Monthly career and reputation peak. Your credibility is important at this time of the lunar month, and efforts at self-promotion might be made now. This is the time when you're noticed for what you've done or haven't done. Do your best to be in top form, make career adjustments if needed, and don't be afraid to show others exactly what you're made of. You're at your best when you are showing the world your practical, competent, and responsible side.

November 30-December 1 Sun squares Saturn. Pushing forward aggressively simply doesn't work now. Delays or setbacks are likely, but are reminders that sometimes we need to slow down and regroup. For you, this can be a potentially challenging time for communications (misunderstandings or frustrating news could figure) and for career matters. Increased responsibilities could feel temporarily overwhelming. Avoid confrontations with authority.

Scorpio (Born November 13 to 22) and Scorpio Ascendant from 20 to 30 degrees Scorpio:

October 2007: Scorpio Horoscope: Love, Career, & General Trends
 

October

 

scorpio the scorpionOverview.

The Sun illuminates your solar eleventh house until the 13th--a more sociable time of the year for you. This is a rather happy, goal-oriented cycle. A lively agenda is promised, you're attracting quite a bit of interest, and your energy for making contact with others is strong. A stronger sense of community is with you during this cycle. Making friendly contact with others, in general, is probable. Relationships take on a fun, if impersonal, tone now. Activities with children increase. You are more stimulated by all that is unconventional during this cycle, and your ideas are original and progressive now. Towards the 13th, you begin to require a bit of down time, and that's natural after a busy month.

From the 13th, the Sun travels through your twelfth house, marking a time of retreat and regeneration. Think about the attachments you have--to things, people, and routines--and consider which ones are dragging you down. This is a time when competitive energies and the ego are on a bit of a break. It's not the time to push ahead with brand new projects. Rather, it's a time of reflection, dreaming, and recharging your batteries. Situations that have naturally outgrown their usefulness in your life can now be put behind you. Endings of natural cycles may be part of the picture at this time of year. Your energy is largely applied to personal and private affairs now. Your disposition is introspective. Rest and reflect, and prepare for a more outgoing cycle when the Sun moves into your first house.

You enjoy a special fondness for your friends this month, as well as for anything new and unusual. Nevertheless, privacy and down time will be needed in order to regroup. Wrapping up projects and efforts that have run their natural course is in order. Harmony in love is most explicit on the 2-4th. You are turned to as an authority and looked upon favorably by superiors on the 19-20th. A financial deal regarding house and property could come through. A partner has an important declaration, or requires special attention, around the 26th.

Mercury retrogrades from October 11-November 1. All Mercury retrograde cycles particularly affect you in terms of communications with friends or groups, as well as intimate communications and shared financial resources, because Mercury rules these areas of your life. It would be wise to be especially clear when it comes to financial transactions and personal communications with friends, or, better yet, take this time to re-budget or rethink your plans instead of taking premature action. Group meetings may be postponed or cancelled, and friends may seem distant or confused. This Mercury Retrograde cycle affects your twelfth house of privacy and all that lies below the surface of things. For the time being, you may not feel that your intuition is serving you well. Perhaps you're picking up the wrong cues or reading too much into situations, particularly with regards to finances and with friends and groups. Be as non-judgmental as you can, but do keep an eye out for deceptiveness and falseness in others.

Your rulers, Pluto and Mars, form stimulating connections to Venus, Mercury, and the Sun this month on the 2-4, 15-17, 19-20, and 26-27, representing opportunity periods for you. A strong opportunity for attraction, negotiation, and partnering occurs on the 2-4. On the 15-17, your social skills are top notch as well. Finances thrive and partnerships flourish. The 19-20 is strong for earning respect and reward. Career matters are also strong. Good news arrives on the 26-27. Red flag periods--times when you are not received as well as you would like, or are prone to impulsive, hasty, or ill-timed behavior--occur on the 9th, when you may feel neglected, slighted, or unappreciated. Conflict with a child or lover may be part of the picture.

Opportunity periods for personal finances occur on the 8 and 30-31. Speculation and new financial initiatives are best avoided on the 9-10, 21, and 26-29, when financial decision-making is unclear.

As far as romantic and creative matters are concerned, opportunities to enhance or attract romance occur on the 12-13 and 25-28. These are power days for personal magnetism, charisma, and creativity. Issues that could be annoying or disconcerting concerning romantic matters are more likely to occur on the 7-10. These would be less than ideal days to go on a first date, for example. With regard to your serious partnerships, long-term relationships tend to thrive on the 2-4 and 13-17. Use these days for strengthening your connection or attracting a serious partnership. Tensions in close partnerships are more likely on the 20, 24-25, and 28-29.

Better times to schedule job interviews or health appointments, and for success and happiness on the job, occur on the 6-7 and 15-17. Red flag periods for these matters occur on the 8-9, when you should probably avoid scheduling health appointments or job interviews if feasible. Matters related to your career and reputation tend to thrive on the 3-4, 7-8, 12, 19-20, and 29-30. Challenges with these matters are more likely to occur on the 13, 23-24, and 26-27, when others, especially authority figures and the public, may not see you in the most favorable light!

Venus continues to move through your solar tenth house all month. You are more socially ambitious than usual during this cycle. Attention is drawn to your professional manner or your personal relationships become more public. More opportunities to socialize and network could present themselves now, or circumstances are such that you need to draw upon your diplomacy skills in order to advance.

Mercury continues to transit your solar twelfth house. This is a cycle in which your mind is focused on private matters and past issues. You're searching behind the curtain, and examining the past for answers. This is a good time for research, quiet contemplation, and meditation; but do avoid being dragged down by issues that have outgrown their worth and purpose. Examining the past in order to improve the future is certainly worthwhile, as long as you don't waste your energy on guilt. Note that from the 11th to November 1st, Mercury is retrograde and can stir up some challenges with these matters.

Mars continues to activate your solar eighth house all month. During this cycle, your energy is channeled through deep but easily aroused emotions and/or a strong sex-drive. This can also express itself through an active interest in big business, finance, and investing. You tend to act on instinct now.

Highlights:

October 2-4 Operative energies include the Sun trine Chiron and Venus trine Pluto. This is a strong period for career and reputation matters, as well as for close personal relationships. It's a time when you and a partner blend well, or when you more readily attract a close partner.

October 6-7 Monthly career and reputation peak. Your credibility is important at this time of the lunar month, and efforts at self-promotion might be made now. This is the time when you're noticed for what you've done or haven't done. Do your best to be in top form, make career adjustments if needed, and don't be afraid to show others exactly what you're made of. You're at your best when you are showing the world your practical, competent, and responsible side.

October 10-12 Mercury is stationary retrograde now, and will remain retrograde until November 1st--a cycle when rethinking matters is the name of the game. When Mercury is stationary, as it is now, it's especially important to prepare for possible breakdowns in communication. Back up your computer, double-check your paperwork, and remember that you may not have all the necessary information to make big decisions for the time being. Avoid signing contracts or deals, as they may not work out as you expected, or they might need revision later.

October 11 New Moon in Libra in your solar eleventh house affects you until November's New Moon. The eleventh house is a sector associated with networking, making contact, group activities, and income earned from business. With the New Moon here, focus is on making contacts and reaching out to others in both a social and professional sense. It's a time to turn inner restlessness into fruitful contact with others. Heightened awareness of your position in life within the context of the group, rather than through self-centered focus, is probable with this position of the New Moon, as well as a need for social security. Goals that involve networking, making connections with others, joining or strengthening ties in a group project/activity, and nurturing good will are the focus this month.

October 14-15 Your Personal New Moon. A new personal cycle begins for you, and you feel fresh and re-energized. It's all about you now, so it's time to put your best foot forward. A blast of personal energy comes your way, and showing your leadership skills works for you now. You are at your most convincing, as others are accepting you at face value. Some people find that the Moon in their sign brings with it a restless, discontented, and emotional state, and that there is more on their plate than they expected or wanted. If this is the case for you, remember that these feelings are there because you need to make a change, however big or small. Use it to stimulate activity and positive change.

October 16-17 Monthly money and income peak. You're looking at the world in terms of value and worth now, and what you have (or don't have) is on your mind. Money issues pop up now—the discovery of a way to increase your income, an unexpected gift or reward, or a brief and tiny financial crisis that motivates you to find new ways to make money are possible.

October 18-20 Mercury trine Mars and sextile Saturn; the Sun sextile Pluto. This is a strong period for deliberate action, productivity, and sound thinking. With Mercury retrograde, reviewing problems from the past is advised rather than initiating new projects. For you, this is a strong period for personal influence, reward, and recognition. Career, work, and reputation matters thrive, and solid progress can be made in work projects.

October 23-24 Romance and pleasure are highlights right now with the Moon in your solar fifth. The Moon is in your element, and so are you! The flowing, expressive, and spontaneous energy surrounding you attracts like-minded (and hearted) people. Be sure to take time to enjoy yourself, preferably around others! Keywords: romance, creativity, spontaneity, pleasure, self-expression.

October 23-25 Strong Uranian energy is with us now with Mercury, the Sun, and Venus in hard aspect to Uranus. We should "expect the unexpected"--little will go as planned. We are likely to rebel against rules, authority, and anything that fences us in. Thinking outside of the box works. For you, frustrating domestic matters could figure. As well, a partner or partnership might temporarily feel unstable. Even career matters are on the chaotic side. Avoid stressing yourself out by expecting changes to plans.

October 26 A Full Moon occurs today in early Taurus in your solar sixth house. Avoid blaming others for your own state of discontent. You can use this surge of emotional energy to make positive changes to your routines. Do something to improve your work conditions if they are annoying you--even if it's a small act of kindness with a co-worker or bringing in something to brighten up your desk or office. Get going on your exercise or nutrition program that you've been toying with in your mind. This may also be a time when a work project comes to fruition or completion.

October 27-28 Your partnerships are highlighted right now, and it's time to compromise. Insecurities in your partnerships are brought to light now, and the best way to handle this is to understand that you need others instead of competing for the floor. Some people find this time of the lunar month an energy sapper, as they feel ignored or unnoticed. Trying to go it alone won't work just now. The spotlight is on other people for the time being, and it's best to let them shine. Concentrate on truly listening to those close to you, and on playing a supportive role. Perhaps not a time to be make a presentation or to come on strong to the world. You are feeling reflective rather than expressive.

October 29-30 Matters pertaining to personal finances and possessions thrive for you now. Circumstances conspire to put you in the lead. Productivity in your career is also featured.

Scorpio (Born November 13 to 22) and Scorpio Ascendant from 20 to 30 degrees Scorpio:

September 2007: Scorpio Horoscope: Love, Career, & General Trends
 

September

 

scorpio the scorpionOverview.

Until the 13th, the Sun puts a spotlight on your tenth house--the most visible sector of the chart. This is the most ambitious period of the year for you. You are more visible and perhaps in demand. Your personal fulfillment now is reinforced most by accepting responsibility for others and for the job you do. At this time of year, your more serious, hard-working, and perhaps sober side comes out for others to see. For some, pessimism gets the upper hand. For most, it's a satisfyingly goal-oriented and disciplined cycle.

From the 13th, the Sun illuminates your sector of friends, groups, and dreams coming true. It's a sociable sector of your chart, and that's exactly how you are feeling--happy, lighthearted, and social. Group affiliations capture your attention. Connections can be made now and networking pays off. Being part of a community or circle of friends and building your social network is important to you at this time. This is a rather happy, goal-oriented cycle. A lively agenda is promised, you're attracting quite a bit of interest, and your energy for making contact with others is high. A stronger sense of community is with you during this cycle. Relationships take on a fun, if impersonal, tone now. Activities with children increase. You are more stimulated by all that is unconventional during this cycle, and your ideas are original and progressive now. This is a time to follow your dreams and ideals, and to plant a seed in the form of a wish for the future.

This month, a partner’s attitude and affairs begin to move forward, serving to ease challenges and to bridge gaps between you and a special someone. Singles feel more confident. Your personal projects begin to move forward and a sense of relief contributes to a hopeful mood. You are picking up much important information intuitively this month, so keep an “idea“ journal. Career pressures are easing, as you are entering a new long-term trend in which you are less concerned about public image and more interested in long-term happiness goals.

Venus turns direct on the 8th, and Venus-ruled areas of life begin to move forward. Love, appreciation, and the need for companionship are expressed more naturally and readily from this point forward. Problems with close partners begin to resolve.

A Solar Eclipse in Virgo occurs on September 11th. The effects of eclipses stay with us for as long as six months, and they reveal main areas of focus for this half-year period. A general rule of thumb regarding eclipses is to avoid major decision-making in the week before an eclipse. This is because new information that could change our perspective often is revealed in the week after the eclipse. Therefore, major decision-making is best avoided from September 4th to 11th. This Solar Eclipse marks a new beginning for you. Flaws in a system of doing things are revealed and it's time to start fresh. This eclipse occurs in your solar eleventh, suggesting that a new approach to friendships or new friendships altogether, a new path towards happiness and fulfillment, new associations or affiliations, or plenty of social activity are in store for you.

Your rulers, Mars and Pluto, form stimulating connections to Venus, Neptune, and Mercury this month on the 4, 7-9, 23-24, and 26-27, representing opportunity periods for you. The 4th is strong for negotiations and partnering, as well as dealing with private matters or issues from the past. On the 7-9, your intuition is heightened. Romance and creativity also thrive. On the 23-24 and 26-27, you may be asked for advice, communications flow smoothly, you are able to rationalize and solve problems, and financial matters are strong. Red flag periods--times when you are not received as well as you would like, or are prone to impulsive, hasty, or ill-timed behavior--are more prevalent this month and occur on the 2-3, 17-19 (especially), and 20-22, when you may feel neglected, slighted, or unappreciated. Power struggles, challenges with work and reputation matters, as well as a feeling of being slighted are themes on the 17-19 and 20-22.

Opportunity periods for personal finances occur on the 6-8 and 12-13. Speculation and new financial initiatives are best avoided on the 3-4 and 25-26, when financial decision-making is unclear.

As far as romantic and creative matters are concerned, opportunities to enhance or attract romance occur on the 7-10 (especially) and 18-19. These are power days for personal magnetism, charisma, and creativity. Issues that could be annoying or disconcerting concerning romantic matters are more likely to occur on the 3-4, 12-13, 20-22, and 27-28. These would be less than ideal days on which to have a first date, for example. With regard to your serious partnerships, long-term relationships tend to thrive on the 1-4 and 17-18. Use these days for strengthening your connection or attracting a serious partnership. Tensions in close partnerships are more likely on the 6, 10, and 19-22.

Better times to schedule job interviews or health appointments, and for success and happiness on the job, occur on the 4, 7-10, and 25-27. Red flag periods for these matters occur on the 2-3, 15-18, and 19-21, when you should probably avoid scheduling health appointments or job interviews if feasible. Matters related to your career and reputation tend to thrive on the 1-2. Challenges with these matters are more likely to occur on the 3-4, 9-10, 12-13, 16-19, and 27-28, when others may not see you in the best light!

Venus continues to transit your solar ninth house until the 22nd. During this period, you are more self-expressive and adventurous with regards to expressing your affections. A love interest who attracts you during this cycle may be somebody who you previously wouldn't consider attractive, or someone whose cultural background is very different than yours. Your perceptions of beauty, in general, are broadened and widened now, and this can extend to things that attract you, including objects and ideas. You have a taste for the exotic and the spirit to match.

Venus journeys through your public sector from the 22nd. During this cycle, you are most charming and well-received on the job. Your responsibility and authority are likeable qualities now, making this a favorable period overall for schmoozing with those in a higher position than you, as well as for negotiations or social activities related to business. Venus is charming, friendly, and affectionate, and her presence in your career and reputation sector brings social opportunities to your career. You are coming across well at work now, and romantic opportunities, or simply more chances to socialize and network, are likely. You are socially ambitious right now, and success may come though your good managerial qualities or some form of artistic talent, or, indirectly through your marriage partner. People who turn your head during this cycle are those who come across as especially competent.

Mercury transits your solar eleventh house until the 19th. Your mind is bright, alert, and active during this cycle, and you have the ability to come up with unusual and inventive ideas. Sharing your thoughts with others is a prime interest. Others tend to particularly enjoy your conversations during this transit--you are willing to listen as well as add your own thoughts. As well, your ability to grasp unusual subject matter and to intuitively understand what others are trying to say win you some brownie points! You could also do a lot of thinking and musing about your own happiness and long-term goals.

Mercury transits your privacy sector from the 19th. Your mind is focused on private matters and past issues during this cycle. This is a time when you are least likely to speak out of turn or to express yourself freely. You're searching behind the curtain, and examining the past for answers. This is a good time for research, quiet contemplation, and meditation; but do avoid being dragged down by issues that have outgrown their worth and purpose. Examining the past in order to improve the future is certainly worthwhile, as long as you don't waste your energy on guilt. Creative endeavors could prosper now, particularly those that draw upon the emotions or that require creative visualization skills, such as poetry, art, acting, and other such activities. You are likely to require a certain amount of solitude in order to get your thoughts together or to be mentally productive. You are less likely to chat indiscriminately during this transit, and tend to be a little secretive or tight-lipped for the time being. This may be important, in fact, because this position is sometimes associated with the uncovering of secrets, so discretion may be in order.

Mars energizes your solar eighth house from the 9th. Sexuality and intimacy are stimulated under this transit. Negative expression of this energy is the tendency towards ego conflicts concerning jointly held property or money. Conflicts with partners over values or possessions are possible. Occasionally, this transit could bring a crisis or ending of some kind. Something you hear about now might disturb or touch you deeply. You are likely to be more strategic in your actions during this period, as you become aware of the subtleties of human interaction. This is a time when your best course of action is to recognize that you need, or rely on, others for support.

Highlights:

September 2-3 Your partnerships are highlighted right now, and it's time to compromise. Insecurities in your partnerships are brought to light now, and the best way to handle this is to understand that you need others instead of competing for the floor. Some people find this time of the lunar month an energy sapper, as they feel ignored or unnoticed. Trying to go it alone won't work just now. The spotlight is on other people for the time being, and it's best to let them shine. Concentrate on truly listening to those close to you, and on playing a supportive role. Perhaps not a time to be make a presentation or to come on strong to the world. You are feeling reflective rather than expressive.

September 7-8 Venus and Pluto turn direct after retrograde periods. These influences represent matters moving forward after a period of introspection and/or lag. For you, this is especially significant because Pluto is your ruler and Venus rules your partnerships. Your personal initiatives and close personal relationships turn around after a period of review or lag. Others begin to understand you more, and the emotional distance that you have been feeling in the past weeks begins to lift.

September 9-10 Monthly career and reputation peak. Your credibility is important at this time of the lunar month, and efforts at self-promotion might be made now. This is the time when you're noticed for what you've done or haven't done. Do your best to be in top form, make career adjustments if needed, and don't be afraid to show others exactly what you're made of. You're at your best when you are showing the world your practical, competent, and responsible side.

September 11 New Moon Solar Eclipse in Virgo in your solar eleventh house affects you now and for months to come. Unexpected events necessitate the need for new beginnings. The eleventh house is a sector associated with networking, making contact, group activities, and income earned from business. With the New Moon here, focus is on making contacts and reaching out to others in both a social and professional sense. It's a time to turn inner restlessness into fruitful contact with others. Heightened awareness of your position in life within the context of the group, rather than through self-centered focus, is probable with this position of the New Moon, as well as a need for social security. Goals that involve networking, making connections with others, joining or strengthening ties in a group project/activity, and nurturing good will are the focus this month.

September 16-17 Your Personal New Moon. A new personal cycle begins for you, and you feel fresh and re-energized. It's all about you now, so it's time to put your best foot forward. A blast of personal energy comes your way, and showing your leadership skills works for you now. You are at your most convincing, as others are accepting you at face value. Some people find that the Moon in their sign brings with it a restless, discontented, and emotional state, and that there is more on their plate than they expected or wanted. If this is the case for you, remember that these feelings are there because you need to make a change, however big or small. Use it to stimulate activity and positive change.

September 19-20 Monthly money and income peak. You're looking at the world in terms of value and worth now, and what you have (or don't have) is on your mind. Money issues pop up now—the discovery of a way to increase your income, an unexpected gift or reward, or a brief and tiny financial crisis that motivates you to find new ways to make money are possible.

September 19-21 Mars opposes Pluto, Venus opposes Neptune, and the Sun is challenged by both Pluto and Chiron. Battles begun now are lose-lose situations. Avoid beating a dead horse and attempting to force matters that should naturally take time to unfold. Circumstances now can push us to discover our own power--power that comes from a strong sense of self rather than superficial energy derived from manipulating people into doing what we want them to do. We are not seeing our finances or love relationships clearly just now. For you, impatience is possible, but so is high energy and drive. While there can be tensions regarding your career and reputation, you are also especially pioneering and unwilling to take the blame for others. Staying active helps. A partner could be distant or confusing right now. Wait it out.

September 24-26 Mercury sextile Pluto and trine Mars. This is a powerful period for presenting your ideas or stating your case. It's also strong for finances, health, and work projects.

September 26 A Full Moon occurs today in early Aries in your solar fifth house. You want to have fun, and the demands of your larger goals in life may have been eclipsing your pleasure-seeking activities. It can be hard to find time for everything you want to do, but without creative self-expression (be it romantic or playful), you simply won't feel complete. It's time to do something self-expressive, fun, and creative. You may be required to complete a creative project at this time. You could feel an overwhelming need to pour your heart out to a lover, or a romantic affair reaches some sort of epiphany. There could be a whirlwind of activity surrounding your child or children.

September 26-27 Romance and pleasure are highlights right now with the Moon in your solar fifth. The Moon is in your element, and so are you! The flowing, expressive, and spontaneous energy surrounding you attracts like-minded (and hearted) people. Be sure to take time to enjoy yourself, preferably around others! Keywords: romance, creativity, spontaneity, pleasure, self-expression.

September 30-October 1 Your partnerships are highlighted right now, and it's time to compromise. Insecurities in your partnerships are brought to light now, and the best way to handle this is to understand that you need others instead of competing for the floor. Some people find this time of the lunar month an energy sapper, as they feel ignored or unnoticed. Trying to go it alone won't work just now.

August 2007: Scorpio Horoscope: Love, Career, & General Trends
 

August

 

scorpio the scorpionOverview.

Until the 13th, the Sun illuminates your solar ninth house. This transit that started in the last week of September finds you at your most adventurous and philosophical. Routine tends to bother you now, as you instinctively are drawn towards anything that brings you up and out of the mundane. You feel more fulfilled when you expand your horizons during this cycle. This can be a restless time, and it could also be a little self-indulgent. As long as you don't fall into the trap of blind optimism, it's a very pleasant time when you have the guts to do something different and enjoy yourself. You are also in the position to gain more of an overall perspective on your life and on your goals.

From the 13th, the Sun illuminates your career and reputation sector. More than any other time of the year, your focus is drawn to your "place" or standing in the outer world, and your reputation. This is the time when you are more interested in, and focused on, accomplishing something important. Your competency is something that you are especially sensitive to during this cycle. You want to shine. Your vision is practical right now, and you want to see tangible results for your efforts. More contact with authority figures is likely during this period. Recognition is likely to come your way whether you ask for it or not, and the responsibility that comes right along with it! Do what you feel is right, keeping in mind that you are at your most visible during this period in the year.

Your yearly career peak occurs in August, dear Scorpio, and you can expect new or increased responsibilities. Success is more important to you than usual, and you take special pride in what you do as well as how you do it. Finances are strong, and financial deals and matters move forward after a slump. Tests to your partnerships are likely, and you could find a partner is distant or hard to reach. Give others breathing room. A creative project bears fruit, or a romance heats up, in the last few days of the month.

Venus continues to retrograde all month and until September 8th. For the time being, avoid making critical decisions about Venus-ruled areas of life, including love and social relationships, entertainment, beauty, and finances. Read more about Venus Retrograde here.

This month, Leo and Sagittarius houses are emphasized. The Sun, Mercury, and Venus all align with Saturn and trine Pluto at various points in the month. As well, Jupiter in Sagittarius turns direct on the 6th. This affects your tenth and second houses. Emphasis is on tangible and practical matters, including personal finances and career--the serious elements of these matters. It's time to make a plan to improve these areas of your life. It may feel like work, but accepting responsibility and the determination to "clean up" your life in these areas will bring rewards. Personal finances can be fortified this month as well. You might discover a stronger connection to your work, possessions, and self-worth, and more purposefulness in your life as a result.

A Lunar Eclipse occurs on August 28th in the early degrees of Pisces. The "crisis" that eclipses such as this one tend to elicit is a crisis of lack--a time when we suddenly realize a great need or want. This eclipse can trigger awareness of need in an area of our lives, such as our relationship to work, to our health and bodies, and so forth. This is a time when matters come to light--things that have been brewing under the surface. With the Virgo-Pisces service axis involved, this Lunar Eclipse presses us to look more closely at our needs, lacks, and wants in our lives. We are pushed to find a balance between day-to-day functions and routines, physical health, and the need for order (Virgo) and vision, spiritual health, disorder, and the infinite (Pisces). Virgo rules the tools and techniques that we use to deal with day-to-day life, while Pisces rules the tools that we use to deal with our spiritual selves. Epiphanies are likely at this time as we become acutely aware of our lack. This understanding can propel us into positive action. Full Moons and Lunar Eclipses bring issues in our lives to fulfillment. Our emotions are heightened, and there is often some sort of drama involved with the house, sign, and any contacted planets activated by the Full Moon. Occurring in your solar fourth house, domestic conditions are illuminated. House repairs, family dramas, and other such issues need serious attention. The demands of your personal life are now paramount. Striking a balance between energy spent on work and energy spent on domestic matters is essential now. Balanced attention to your public and personal lives is what you need to focus on. It's time to prioritize.

Your rulers, Pluto and Mars, form stimulating connections to Saturn, Venus, Mercury, the Sun, and Chiron this month, on the 5-6, 14-17, 19-20, and 26-27, representing opportunity periods for you. On the 5-6, serious matters figure. It is necessary now to assume more responsibility in certain areas of your life. Others may turn to you for strength. You are coming across as particularly respectable now. Communications figure strongly, and a "clean up" is required. On the 14-17, social matters fare especially well. Love may come your way, but likely someone from your past will figure. This is a good time to strengthen an existing partnership, and for shared finances. On the 19-20, career matters are strong and your personal influence increases. On the 26-27, recognition for your more unique qualities comes naturally without even trying. Humble confidence shines now. Red flag periods--times when you are not received as well as you would like, or are prone to impulsive, hasty, or ill-timed behavior--occur on the 1-4, 7, and 25, when you may feel neglected, slighted, or unappreciated.

Opportunity periods for personal finances occur on the 2 and 9. Speculation and new financial initiatives are best avoided on the 1 and 22-24, when financial decision-making is unclear. Money matters move forward this month -- matters that were previously "stuck" are now released.

As far as romantic and creative matters are concerned, opportunities to enhance or attract romance occur on the 2 and 9. These are power days for personal magnetism, charisma, and creativity. Issues that could be annoying or disconcerting concerning romantic matters are more likely to occur on the 13-14, 23-25, and 30. These would be less than ideal days to go on a first date, for example. With regard to your serious partnerships, long-term relationships tend to thrive on the 12-18 and 28. Use these days for strengthening your connection or attracting a serious partnership. Tensions in close partnerships are more likely on the 7-8 and 24-27. With your partnership ruler retrograde all month, you may be dealing with a distant partner who is re-evaluating your partnership. Give him or her space and don't push.

Better times to schedule job interviews or health appointments, and for success and happiness on the job, occur on the 3 and 26-27. Red flag periods for these matters occur on the 1-2, 7-8, 22-24, and 25, when you should probably avoid scheduling health appointments or job interviews if feasible. Matters related to your career and reputation tend to thrive on the 1-2 and 15-22. Challenges with these matters are more likely to occur on the 3-5, 10-11, and 13-14, when others may not see you in the best light!

Venus continues to move through your solar tenth house this month. Issues surrounding career, reputation, and accountability matters are intensified, but due to Venus's retrograde motion, past issues are revisited and old problems come to light. This is a period of review and re-assessment of career and standing issues for you.

Mercury transits your solar ninth house until the 14th. Not content to focus on mundane, practical affairs just now, your mind is on bigger visions, thoughts, and ideals. You are open to expanding your knowledge base during this cycle, and communications from or with someone far away may be part of the picture. You are putting everything into perspective now, rather than compartmentalizing. Instead of simply shooting the breeze, you are more inclined to discuss broader philosophies now. Your inclination during this cycle is to think about the "big picture" rather than the mundane circumstances and details of your life. Missing appointments and other forms of forgetfulness could be part of the picture now.

Mercury transits your solar tenth house from the 14-30. You are likely thinking a lot about your career and business matters, or your career requires more communication than usual during this cycle. You speak with authority during this period, and you are more accountable than usual for what (and how) you communicate. Your ideas may come into public view now. Use the power of words to influence authority figures. This is an excellent period for developing career and professional plans or strategies. You may be turned to for advice or for your opinion on important matters. Although approachable and ready to communicate, you are less inclined towards chatting about frivolous matters now. You tend to think about your position or standing on a professional level more frequently during this cycle. You are likely doing some multi-tasking regarding career and business matters. Negative use of this influence would be to worry unnecessarily about your reputation and responsibilities.

Mars continues to transit your solar seventh house all month, although the drama of this position definitely eases after the 7th, as Mars is now past an opposition to your Sun. With Mars in the seventh house, you are likely to exert your energy and initiative in active co-operation with others as associates or in partnerships of some kind. You can be aggressive and forceful in intimate relationships, or your partner may be displaying these traits. It is important to be restrained in all dealings with associates, business partners, and intimate partners. If you are too aggressive or dominant now, there is danger of trouble and loss through public opposition, unpopularity, damaged relationships, or even litigation in rare cases. This cycle tests your ability to resolve interpersonal conflicts. Remember that anger is often a mask for hurt feelings. There's bound to be a lot of friction or push and pull as you strive to balance your style and agenda with another's. 

Highlights:

August 2-3 Operative energies include the Sun trine Jupiter and Mercury sextile Mars. The tendency to take the high road in our relations with others dominates now. We more easily assert ourselves and our needs without causing a stir. For you, a blast of positive energy arrives in your career or concerning your social standing and reputation. Money matters may thrive now. Work is busy but productive and satisfying.

August 2-3 Romance and pleasure are highlights right now with the Moon in your solar fifth. The Moon is in your element, and so are you! The flowing, expressive, and spontaneous energy surrounding you attracts like-minded (and hearted) people. Be sure to take time to enjoy yourself, preferably around others! Keywords: romance, creativity, spontaneity, pleasure, self-expression.

August 6-7 Your partnerships are highlighted right now, and it's time to compromise. Insecurities in your partnerships are brought to light now, and the best way to handle this is to understand that you need others instead of competing for the floor. Some people find this time of the lunar month an energy sapper, as they feel ignored or unnoticed. Trying to go it alone won't work just now. The spotlight is on other people for the time being, and it's best to let them shine. Concentrate on truly listening to those close to you, and on playing a supportive role. Perhaps not a time to be make a presentation or to come on strong to the world. You are feeling reflective rather than expressive.

August 12 New Moon in Leo in your solar tenth house affects you until the next New Moon in September. Heightened sensitivity to your standing in society and your goals for constructive progress are highlighted this month. It's a good time to develop new business plans and goals, assuming the New Moon is not very afflicted, and a sense of renewal and reinvigoration with regards to your career goals is a potential. It is a time to focus on the elements of your personality that you are projecting to society and as a professional. Goals for self-mastery and self-discipline should be made at this time. This is a phase when you will be busy with career and/or public responsibilities.

August 12-15 Operative energies include Neptune opposing a Sun-Mercury conjunction; and Venus conjunct Saturn and trine Pluto. Relationship or financial tests are likely now, but act to improve matters considerably in the long run. Be wary of what others are saying, of what you read, and of what you perceive during this period. Avoid making premature decisions until Neptune's veil lifts. Your ruler trines Saturn, suggesting a good time for realistically handling mundane affairs in your life. Some feelings of disillusionment with your job or family could surface now, or you could be feeling increased responsibilities in these areas of your life.

August 13-14 Monthly career and reputation peak. Your credibility is important at this time of the lunar month, and efforts at self-promotion might be made now. This is the time when you're noticed for what you've done or haven't done. Do your best to be in top form, make career adjustments if needed, and don't be afraid to show others exactly what you're made of. You're at your best when you are showing the world your practical, competent, and responsible side.

August 17-19 Operative energies include the Sun conjunct Venus; and Mercury conjunct Saturn and trine Pluto. Conversations of a more serious or probing nature are likely now. We may feel compelled to get to the bottom of a matter. For you, this is a strong period for communications and self-expression. A financial matter may bear fruit.

August 19-21 Operative energies include the Sun conjunct Saturn and trine Pluto. We may be recognized or rewarded in some way for the efforts we put forth. Improved concentration and focus, a more realistic outlook, and a practical awareness of the limits of time all help us to make steady progress. Dedication and commitment to our goals runs high. For you, this is an excellent period for goal-oriented career affairs.

August 20-21 Your Personal New Moon. A new personal cycle begins for you, and you feel fresh and re-energized. It's all about you now, so it's time to put your best foot forward. A blast of personal energy comes your way, and showing your leadership skills works for you now. You are at your most convincing, as others are accepting you at face value. Some people find that the Moon in their sign brings with it a restless, discontented, and emotional state, and that there is more on their plate than they expected or wanted. If this is the case for you, remember that these feelings are there because you need to make a change, however big or small. Use it to stimulate activity and positive change.

August 23-24 Monthly money and income peak. You're looking at the world in terms of value and worth now, and what you have (or don't have) is on your mind. Money issues pop up now—the discovery of a way to increase your income, an unexpected gift or reward, or a brief and tiny financial crisis that motivates you to find new ways to make money are possible.

August 28 A Full Moon Lunar Eclipse occurs today in early Pisces. The effect of this eclipse can last 3-6 months. The last two weeks have found you working hard towards your career goals and other public matters. The demands of your personal life are now paramount. Striking a balance between energy spent on work and energy spent on domestic matters is essential now. Balanced attention to your public and personal lives is what you need to focus on. It's time to prioritize. Otherwise, you run the risk of over-extending yourself. A home, family, or property matter could grab your complete attention at this time.

August 29-30 Romance and pleasure are highlights right now with the Moon in your solar fifth. The Moon is in your element, and so are you! The flowing, expressive, and spontaneous energy surrounding you attracts like-minded (and hearted) people. Be sure to take time to enjoy yourself, preferably around others! Keywords: romance, creativity, spontaneity, pleasure, self-expression.

Scorpio (Born November 13 to 22) and Scorpio Ascendant from 20 to 30 degrees Scorpio:

July 2007: Scorpio Horoscope: Love, Career, & General Trends
 

July

scorpio the scorpionOverview.

Until the 10th, the Sun continues to emphasize your intimacy sector. This sector rules all power-related issues and matters that brew under the surface of things. Sometimes this spotlight brings a tiny crisis or intense feelings. Intimacy matters come into strong focus as well. Taxes, shared resources, and other money matters may also feature strongly.

From the 12th, your focus turns outward, away from the more personal concerns that have occupied your thoughts in the last months. More than any other time during the year, you are feeling most adventurous and willing to take a leap of faith. This is a cycle in which you seek a higher meaning to your life, and/or seek out new experiences that take you beyond the here and now, and beyond the mundane details of day-to-day life. Anything that broadens your experiences attracts now. A lack of superficiality finds you straight to the point, interested in the truth of things. It would be wise for you to consider scheduling a vacation, adventure of sorts, or a course that expands your mind. These don't have to happen now, but taking the time to recognize your needs for escaping the daily grind, taking a few risks, and feeding your spirit for self-expression through some form of adventure or higher learning, will help you to feel good about yourself. The only caution with this cycle is that you could lose touch with everyday affairs and important details.

You are something of a free spirit this month, even if more mundane matters require attention. The second half of July is ideal for getting away from it all. Travel and adventure reinforce a sense of personal fulfillment. Prophetic visions might even figure. Partnerships become especially lively in July, although you could be dealing with aggressive or frustrating behavior from a special someone, particularly around the 11-12th. The best time of the month for personal magnetism occurs on the 7-10, when others find it easy to see your perspective on matters.

Mercury's retrograde period that began mid-June ends on July 9th. From the 9th until the 24th, we have a chance to revisit issues that stumped us during Mercury's retrograde period, and delays encountered begin to resolve.

Venus retrogrades on July 27th and stays in this apparent backward motion until September 8th. As Venus slows down in the last week of July, avoid making critical decisions about Venus-ruled areas of life, including love and social relationships, entertainment, beauty, and finances.

Your rulers, Mars and Pluto, forms stimulating connections to Mercury, Venus, and Uranus this month, on the 1, 7-9, and 20, representing opportunity periods for you. On the 1st, a pleasant communication or conversation could have you walking on air. Intimacy and financial matters fare especially well. On the 7-9, you have charm and magnetism on your side. Now is the time to attract what or who you want! Your partnerships fare especially well, whether it's to enhance an existing one or to attract a new one. On the 20th, family matters are strong. You are likely to pleasantly surprise someone with fabulous rewards. Red flag periods--times when you are not received as well as you would like, or are prone to impulsive, hasty, or ill-timed behavior--occur on the 10-12, 19, 24, and 30-31 when you may feel neglected, slighted, or unappreciated.

Opportunity periods for personal finances occur on the 2 and 27. Speculation and new financial initiatives are best avoided on the 3, 10, and 17-18, when financial decision-making is unclear.

As far as romantic and creative matters are concerned, opportunities to enhance or attract romance occur on the 2 and 27. These are power days for personal magnetism, charisma, and creativity. Issues that could be annoying or disconcerting concerning romantic matters are more likely to occur on the 13-14, 17-19, 23-25, and 30. These would be less than ideal days to go on a first date, for example. With regard to your serious partnerships, long-term relationships tend to thrive on the 1-2 and 5-10. Use these days for strengthening your connection or attracting a serious partnership. Tensions in close partnerships are more likely on the 28.

Better times to schedule job interviews or health appointments, and for success and happiness on the job, occur on the 1, 5-7, and 19-21. Red flag periods for these matters occur on the 10-15, 23-24, and 30-31, when you should probably avoid scheduling health appointments or job interviews if feasible. Matters related to your career and reputation tend to thrive on the 10-11. Challenges with these matters are more likely to occur on the 3, 6, 14, 17-19, and 25-26, when others may not see you in the best light!

Venus continues to transit your solar tenth house all month. Venus is charming, friendly, and affectionate, and her presence in your career and reputation sector brings social opportunities and charm to your career. You are coming across well at work now, and romantic opportunities, or simply more chances to socialize and network, are likely.

Mercury transits your solar eighth house all month. You are more intuitive now than usual, picking up all of the hidden cues from people around you and reading between the lines. This is an excellent cycle in which to do some financial planning and strategizing. Research is also highly favored. It's also easier for you to approach sensitive, intimate, and personal matters with rationality and logic. As such, this is a great time to open up conversations about topics that normally might cause waves, such as those revolving around the sharing of power, intimacy, and finances. However, these matters could be tricky while Mercury is retrograde until the 9th, after which some sort of resolve is likely to take place.

Until the 23rd, Mars continues to transit your solar sixth house, and you have more energy at your disposal for work and fitness or other health routines. You are bound to take a head-on, direct approach to organizing your life and with regards to your working methods. Impatience with daily routines is also possible, particularly around the 4-6. You may be inclined to compete with others on a professional level, or at least to want to dominate or work solo. You are not in the mood to take orders just now! This period doesn't favor teamwork. Avoid the tendency to argue with co-workers by doing whatever you can to work independently. You work with energy, impatience, and speed during this cycle. It's a good time to focus on a fitness routine.

Mars moves through your partnership sector from the 23rd. Partnerships may suffer from ego conflicts, or adversaries may be challenging. Use this energy to work cooperatively on relationship problems. You may even find that you seem to need someone's help in order to do what you want to do during this cycle. Relationships are vivacious and dynamic during this period. When a difference arises, you are quick to settle it, and have little patience for sweeping matters under the rug. Your close personal relationships are lively during this cycle--full of conflicts and resolutions or reconciliations.

Highlights:

July 1-2 Operative energies include Venus conjunct Saturn and Mercury sextile Mars. Challenges in close relationships may come to light now, bringing up the need to make solid plans or re-commitments. Reformulating a budget may also become necessary now. It's a good period for a heart-to-heart, as we tend to speak clearly and directly. However, we should watch for overly practical perspectives on sensitive matters.

July 6-7 Romance and pleasure are highlights right now with the Moon in your solar fifth. The Moon is in your element, and so are you! The flowing, expressive, and spontaneous energy surrounding you attracts like-minded (and hearted) people. Be sure to take time to enjoy yourself, preferably around others! Keywords: romance, creativity, spontaneity, pleasure, self-expression.

July 7-10 Operative energies include Venus trine Pluto, the Sun trine Uranus, and Mars sesquiquadrate Pluto. Powerful romantic and creative energies are with us now. Relationships, creative projects, or financial initiatives become more rich, meaningful, and intriguing. Freedom of expression, spontaneity, and creative license are important to us now. Don't let suspiciousness or negative thinking spoil the opportunities that arise now. Personal charisma is strong, even if you are rubbing some people the wrong way. Power struggles are likely on the job, but a partnership strengthens. Working relations may be strained, yet you stand to gain in the long run.

July 8-10 Mercury stations and turns direct on July 9th. Holding off on important discussions, interviews, or contracts is probably wise right now, as thinking is foggy and misunderstandings are likely. As Mercury moves forward and regains speed over the next couple of weeks, we can more easily get projects off the ground.

July 10-11 Your partnerships are highlighted right now, and it's time to compromise. Insecurities in your partnerships are brought to light now, and the best way to handle this is to understand that you need others instead of competing for the floor. Some people find this time of the lunar month an energy sapper, as they feel ignored or unnoticed. Trying to go it alone won't work just now. The spotlight is on other people for the time being, and it's best to let them shine. Concentrate on truly listening to those close to you, and on playing a supportive role. Perhaps not a time to be make a presentation or to come on strong to the world. You are feeling reflective rather than expressive.

July 14 New Moon in Cancer in your solar ninth house affects you until the next New Moon in August. The ninth house rules our spirit to grow, explore, and expand beyond the "regular" experiences in our lives. The New Moon here may bring some restlessness and dissatisfaction with regular routines. Make an effort to initiate new projects or activities that expand your mind, feed your spirit for adventure, and stretch your imagination. You may feel renewed by a new perspective on your life, something philosophical or spiritual that you read or learn, or an adventure that takes you away from the mundane routines in your life.

July 16-17 Monthly career and reputation peak. Your credibility is important at this time of the lunar month, and efforts at self-promotion might be made now. This is the time when you're noticed for what you've done or haven't done. Do your best to be in top form, make career adjustments if needed, and don't be afraid to show others exactly what you're made of. You're at your best when you are showing the world your practical, competent, and responsible side.

July 23-26 Operative energies include Mercury semi-square Saturn, Mars square Neptune, and the Sun sesquiquadrate Uranus. Some tension is in the air now. It can be difficult to get a point across or to move about effortlessly. Others may be rebellious, resistant to change, or simply hard to pin down. Confusing circumstances surrounding your work, routines, or health could figure now. A lover or child could be in an aggressive or unruly mood.

July 24-25 Your Personal New Moon. A new personal cycle begins for you, and you feel fresh and re-energized. It's all about you now, so it's time to put your best foot forward. A blast of personal energy comes your way, and showing your leadership skills works for you now. You are at your most convincing, as others are accepting you at face value. Some people find that the Moon in their sign brings with it a restless, discontented, and emotional state, and that there is more on their plate than they expected or wanted. If this is the case for you, remember that these feelings are there because you need to make a change, however big or small. Use it to stimulate activity and positive change.

July 26-27 Monthly money and income peak. You're looking at the world in terms of value and worth now, and what you have (or don't have) is on your mind. Money issues pop up now—the discovery of a way to increase your income, an unexpected gift or reward, or a brief and tiny financial crisis that motivates you to find new ways to make money are possible.

July 26-28 Venus stations and turns retrograde on July 27th. Venus will stay retrograde until September 8th--a period in which we re-assess our love relationships and finances. During this station, be particularly cautious in your dealings with people dear to you, as well as with money. Postpone major beauty treatments as well. See Venus Retrograde for more information about this cycle.

July 28-29 Mercury trines Uranus. This is an opportune time to attend meetings and other organized group activities, to communicate online, and to take part in activities involving computers, scientific projects, and metaphysics. Insights seem to come from "out of the blue". Original, creative ideas are easy to come by now. For you, a creative project may move forward, and pleasurable activities figure. Fun with friends and pleasant surprises could be part of the picture now.

July 30 Full Moon in Aquarius in your solar third house. The last two weeks have found you somewhat restless and in need of more from life than the mundane. Now the mundane is catching up with you. Errands need to be run, people are talking your ear off, you need to do some paperwork and answer calls. An important document could arrive, or a sudden need to run an important errand or to take a short trip could be part of the picture. You are pushed to find a balance now. Do what needs to be done so that you can free yourself up for more adventurous and fulfilling activities.

Scorpio (Born November 13 to 22) and Scorpio Ascendant from 20 to 30 degrees Scorpio:

Scorpio Horoscope: Love, Career, & General Trends
 

June

scorpio the scorpionOverview.

Until the 11th, the Sun illuminates your solar seventh house. At this time of year, you have a greater need than usual to be with a partner. You seem to need a partner or good friend with whom you can bounce ideas off. A partner is a catalyst for you to discover and develop your own self, and to realize your own potential. During this time, you focus on balancing your personal interests and objectives with what would be best for a significant other. The emphasis is on "us" rather than "me". You need the energies, companionship, and support of other people, and they also are drawing upon you a great deal. It's important to give others credit and recognition, and to attempt to harmonize and include others rather than to go solo for the time being.

From the 11th, the Sun energizes your sector of  transformation, change, sexuality, personal growth, regeneration, others' money and resources, addictions, and taxes. As a result, this is not the most gregarious of months for you. You take a step back, focus on intimacy with a partner, or simply retreat a little from the hectic pace of life. This is an excellent time to create a budget or financial plan, or to rid yourself of bad habits that undermine your sense of personal power and self-mastery. All that is deeply personal comes into focus now. Intimate matters are especially important to you during this cycle. Just how well you are handling your life comes up for inspection. Your self-mastery skills and psychological predisposition matter to you more than usual. This is the time of year when you are most desirous of change on a deep level. Clearing out psychic "junk" or ridding yourself of bad habits may be part of the picture now. You are more willing than usual to explore life's secrets. This cycle brings greater in-depth understanding and an inclination to delve beneath the surface of matters to get to the bottom of them. Research uncovers new material that allows you to develop a better overall picture of the year's events. This is an especially introspective cycle during which you have the chance to truly uncover your personal strengths and talents. On a more practical level, you may be dealing with joint finances and shared resources now more than usual.

This month, you are bound to find the “way out” of recent problems juggling your career and domestic responsibilities. Support--emotional or practical--arrives when you need it most! Finances and intimate matters are your major focus in the first three weeks of June, after which you have your sights set on adventure and exploration. Relations on the job become especially easygoing and pleasant after the first week of June, when social invitations also figure. A fabulous opportunity appears on the 20-22. Gifts, rewards, and recognition come your way.

In the first half of the month, there is a strong emphasis on your first and seventh house axis, and issues surrounding personal influence, appearance, and partnerships are in the foreground. Much activity around these "departments" of your life is stimulated.

Mercury begins a retrograde cycle on June 15th and runs until July 9th. All Mercury retrograde cycles particularly affect you in terms of communications with friends or groups, as well as intimate communications and shared financial resources, because Mercury rules these areas of your life. It would be wise to be especially clear when it comes to financial transactions and personal communications with friends, or, better yet, take this time to re-budget or rethink your plans instead of taking premature action. Group meetings may be postponed or cancelled, and friends may seem distant or confused. Occurring in your solar eighth house this time, extra care should be exercised regarding any financial initiatives that involve shared resources. Delays are very possible when it comes to receiving support, loans, and taxes. It may be better to side-step arguments with loved ones that revolve around intimacy and sexuality. Investments made now may not go the way you want them to, particularly those involving joint finances. It may be hard to rely on the input of your partner now, and money you were counting on may not be forthcoming. It's best to budget rather than spend. It would be wise to be especially clear when it comes to communicating with financial officials and intimate partners; or take this time to re-examine issues rather than communicating about them prematurely.

This month, Saturn and Neptune are in opposition for the final time. This energy first occurred in August 2006 (see our horoscope archives in August for an explanation of the conflict). Some sort of resolve of the conflict is in sight now, although getting to that point could involve some form of disillusionment.

Your rulers, Pluto and Mars, form stimulating connections to Jupiter, Chiron, Saturn, the Sun, Neptune, and each other this month, on the 4-5, 11-13, and 20-22, representing opportunity periods for you. Good will and positive energy comes your way on the 4-5, when you are appreciated by others quite naturally and automatically. You are expressing a most benevolent energy now that attracts good things to you. The 11-13 opportunity period is strong for productivity, recognition, and authority. Career matters are particularly strong. The 20-22 is perhaps the best period for you in June. Energy flows smoothly, and you are able to take a stand or assert your wishes without stepping on anyone's toes. It's also good for work matters. Red flag periods--times when you are not received as well as you would like, or are prone to impulsive, hasty, or ill-timed behavior--occur on the 3, 18-19, and 28-29, when you may feel neglected, slighted, or unappreciated. On the 3 and 18-19, feeling underappreciated and misunderstood is likely. A partner may not appreciate the way you are coming across now. Watch for impulsiveness or stressful changes on the 28-29.

Opportunity periods for personal finances occur on the 3-4, 7-8, and 19-20. Speculation and new financial initiatives are best avoided on the 5-6 and 21-22.

As far as romantic and creative matters are concerned, opportunities to enhance or attract romance occur on the 12-14 especially and 19-20. These days represent power days for personal magnetism, charisma, and creativity. Issues that could be annoying or disconcerting concerning romantic matters are more likely to occur on the 28-30. These would be less than ideal days to go on a first date, for example. With regard to your serious partnerships, long-term relationships tend to thrive on the 20 and 30-1 (with some challenges). Use these periods for strengthening your connection or attracting a serious partnership. Tensions in close partnerships are more likely on the 3-4, 5, 8-9, 18-19 (especially), 21-22, 25-26, and 29-30.

Better times to schedule job interviews or health appointments, and for success and happiness on the job, occur on the 3-5, 7-15, and 20-22. Red flag periods for these matters occur on the 28-29, when you should probably avoid scheduling health appointments or job interviews if feasible. Matters related to your career and reputation tend to thrive on the 6 and 11-13 especially. Challenges with these matters are more likely to occur on the 5, 9-10, 18-19, and 28-29, when others may not see you in the best light!

Venus continues to journey through your solar ninth house until the 28th. During this period, you are more self-expressive and adventurous with regards to expressing your affections. A love interest who attracts you during this cycle may be somebody who you previously wouldn't consider attractive, or someone whose cultural background is very different than yours. Your perceptions of beauty, in general, are broadened and widened now, and this can extend to things that attract you, including objects and ideas. You have a taste for the exotic and the spirit to match.

Venus moves through your solar tenth house from the 28th. During this cycle, you are most charming and well-received on the job. Your responsibility and authority are likeable qualities now, making this a favorable period overall for schmoozing with those in a higher position than you, as well as for negotiations or social activities related to business. Venus is charming, friendly, and affectionate, and her presence in your career and reputation sector brings social opportunities to your career. You are coming across well at work now, and romantic opportunities, or simply more chances to socialize and network, are likely. You are socially ambitious right now, and success may come though your good managerial qualities or some form of artistic talent, or, indirectly through your marriage partner. People who turn your head during this cycle are those who come across as especially competent.

Mercury transits your solar eighth house all month. You are more intuitive now than usual, picking up all of the hidden cues from people around you and reading between the lines. This is an excellent cycle in which to do some financial planning and strategizing. Research is also highly favored. It's also easier for you to approach sensitive, intimate, and personal matters with rationality and logic. As such, this is a great time to open up conversations about topics that normally might cause waves, such as those revolving around the sharing of power, intimacy, and finances. However, these matters could be tricky while Mercury is retrograde from the 15th forward.

Mars activates your solar sixth house from the 11th. You have more energy for work and your daily routines tend to speed up during this transit. Perhaps you have a larger workload than usual. It's a great time to take charge of your health. You have much energy at your disposal to pick up (or step up) a health and physical activity program. It might be hard for you to work with others in a harmonious manner during this transit, and disputes with co-workers are possible. If you are feeling especially angry, frustrated, or restless, it would be wise to find little projects and things to do so that you can channel excess energy constructively. If health is affected, fevers or infections are more likely.

Highlights:

June 2-3 Monthly money and income peak. You're looking at the world in terms of value and worth now, and what you have (or don't have) is on your mind. Money issues pop up now—the discovery of a way to increase your income, an unexpected gift or reward, or a brief and tiny financial crisis that motivates you to find new ways to make money are possible.

June 3-6 Operative energies include the Sun trine Chiron and opposite Jupiter; Mars trine Jupiter and sextile Chiron; and Venus sesquiquadrate Jupiter. These influences produce a natural, enterprising spirit. Enthusiasm and confidence are with us now, and it's easy to tap into our more unique qualities and talents in order to go after what we want. However, we also have the tendency to over-reach. For you, it's time to shine on the job, although it's best not to overdo your authority now. Money matters are also strong, and you could enjoy an increase in pay from your work. A partner could be promising more than they can deliver, however.

June 8-9 Romance and pleasure are highlights right now with the Moon in your solar fifth. The Moon is in your element, and so are you! The flowing, expressive, and spontaneous energy surrounding you attracts like-minded (and hearted) people. Be sure to take time to enjoy yourself, preferably around others! Keywords: romance, creativity, spontaneity, pleasure, self-expression.

June 9 With the Sun and Venus in hard aspect to Uranus, watch for disruptions in personal relationships and general plans. Expect the unexpected! For you, these disruptions and surprises are likely to occur in the realms of partnerships and career. You could feel threatened by a partner's erratic behavior, for example.

June 10-12 Operative energies include the Sun sextile Mars and Saturn, and Mars trine Saturn. We are able to creatively solve problems and to instinctively take action when necessary now. It's easy to stick to a specific task and make headway. Work takes on definite shape, and we can see results from our efforts. This gives us a sense of responsibility and a feeling of directedness and purposefulness. This is a good time to temper our energy and to exercise better judgment, as well as to get and feel organized. Traditional methods work, and thoroughness brings rewards. Practical considerations are favored over impulsive decisions. For you, getting organized on the job can give you a real boost. This is a strong period for career matters--respect and authority. An energetic and productive conversation can also figure now.

June 13 Operative energies include the Sun trine Neptune and Mars sextile Neptune. Interesting synchronicities can occur now. We may be at the right place at the right time, probably because our hunches are more likely to be correct and we are "tuned in". Instinctual judgment is enhanced under these influences. This period favors dancing, swimming, photography, the arts, and entertainment--mediums in which we act upon our more spiritual or artistic inclinations. It's a time when we are guided by intuition more than reason. Taking action towards the attainment of a dream can also figure now. For you, interesting twists to your life story could occur now, particularly surrounding partnerships and career. It's also strong for romantic matters.

June 13-14 Your partnerships are highlighted right now, and it's time to compromise. Insecurities in your partnerships are brought to light now, and the best way to handle this is to understand that you need others instead of competing for the floor. Some people find this time of the lunar month an energy sapper, as they feel ignored or unnoticed. Trying to go it alone won't work just now. The spotlight is on other people for the time being, and it's best to let them shine. Concentrate on truly listening to those close to you, and on playing a supportive role. Perhaps not a time to be make a presentation or to come on strong to the world. You are feeling reflective rather than expressive.

June 14 New Moon in Gemini in your solar eighth house affects you until the next New Moon in July. This is a time of empowerment. It is a good time to focus on issues of intimacy as well as developing self-mastery skills. You may experience increased awareness of others—what makes them tick—as well as your own internal motivations during this period. It is a time when intimacy and deep levels of sharing are heightened. It is also a favorable time to start a financial plan, savings plan, take out a loan or consolidate, and do work in accounting.

June 14-16 Mercury is stationary retrograde now, and will remain retrograde until July 9th--a cycle when rethinking matters is the name of the game. When Mercury is stationary, as it is now, it's especially important to prepare for possible breakdowns in communication. Back up your computer, double-check your paperwork, and remember that you may not have all the necessary information to make big decisions for the time being. Avoid signing contracts or deals, as they may not work out as you expected, or they might need revision later.

June 19-20 Monthly career and reputation peak. Your credibility is important at this time of the lunar month, and efforts at self-promotion might be made now. This is the time when you're noticed for what you've done or haven't done. Do your best to be in top form, make career adjustments if needed, and don't be afraid to show others exactly what you're made of. You're at your best when you are showing the world your practical, competent, and responsible side.

June 26-27 Your Personal New Moon. A new personal cycle begins for you, and you feel fresh and re-energized. It's all about you now, so it's time to put your best foot forward. A blast of personal energy comes your way, and showing your leadership skills works for you now. You are at your most convincing, as others are accepting you at face value. Some people find that the Moon in their sign brings with it a restless, discontented, and emotional state, and that there is more on their plate than they expected or wanted. If this is the case for you, remember that these feelings are there because you need to make a change, however big or small. Use it to stimulate activity and positive change.

June 29-30 Monthly money and income peak. You're looking at the world in terms of value and worth now, and what you have (or don't have) is on your mind. Money issues pop up now—the discovery of a way to increase your income, an unexpected gift or reward, or a brief and tiny financial crisis that motivates you to find new ways to make money are possible.

June 29-30 Operative energies include Mars-Uranus, Sun-Saturn, Sun-Neptune, and Venus-Neptune hard aspects. The contrast between what is real and what is only a dream is explicit. It's best to avoid beginning a new project for the time being, as there is a lack of clarity now. For you, long-standing challenges regarding professional responsibilities and credibility as well as personal or domestic matters can reach a head now before final resolve. Disappointments and frustrations are likely. As well, dealing with disappointments regarding the services you render others and a partnership could be part of the picture now.

June 30 Full Moon in Capricorn in your solar second house. Intimacy, issues of power and control, or joint finances may have been a focus for the last two weeks. Now it's time to recognize what makes you comfortable. This Full Moon is about balancing the give and take of intimacy--the giving and receiving of pleasure. Sharing issues come into focus, as do issues of power--what's yours and what's mine. Your comfort zones matter, and now is the time to take care of your own needs without eclipsing the needs of others.

Scorpio (Born November 13 to 22) and Scorpio Ascendant from 20 to 30 degrees Scorpio:

May 2007: Scorpio Horoscope: Love, Career, & General Trends
 

May

scorpio the scorpionOverview. Until the 11th, the Sun continues to spotlight your work and health sector. You take more pride in the work you do and in your health routines than any other time of the year. You are sorting through the experiences of the last several months, separating the worthwhile from the worthless. This is a good time to build your skills, to get organized, and to attend to your health and wellbeing. It’s a great time to make improvements to your regular routines. Your self-esteem and your ego are tied up in the work you do and in the services you give. You may be drawn into some form of service that will bring deep personal satisfaction. At this time, you seek perfection and distinction in your work and this quality bring you a more responsible position. This cycle presents an opportunity to get rid of what doesn't work in your life, while also discovering what does. More than any time of the year, you are conscious of your mental and physical health, daily routines, everyday working life, and your working methods.

From the 11th, the Sun illuminates your seventh house. At this time of year, you have a greater need than usual to be with a partner. Bouncing ideas off someone helps you to better understand yourself. A partner provides a mirror for your own self-discovery. Now is the time to realize your own potential through a significant other. During this cycle, you focus on balancing your personal interests and objectives with your social life, or with those of a partner. The emphasis is on "us" rather than "me". You need the energies, companionship, and support of other people, and they may also seek out your support and companionship. It's important to include others rather than to go solo for the time being. However, bending too much to the will of another is not advised either. Social interactions of a personal, one-on-one kind are emphasized. Circumstances are such that your diplomacy skills are required. Your popularity is increasing, and is reinforced by your own ability to cooperate and harmonize. Your ego and pride are tied up in how you relate to others now. This may be an especially busy time for people who consult or work with clients one-on-one.

May is a month of compromise for you, Scorpio. The challenge is to balance the needs of a significant other with your own. Your emotions are on your sleeve around the Full Moon on the 2nd--a rare thing! A new beginning in a relationship is in the works beginning on the 16th, and someone completely opposite to your usual “type“ may catch your eye. Expanding your personal resources is especially important to you now, and so is taking a few risks and enjoying your bounty! It can be challenging to accommodate both needs at once, however.

This month, Jupiter squares Uranus and trines Saturn. These long-term energies have been with us since January and March, respectively. For you, some material benefits can come from your career. Alternatively, you may have more resources to invest into your career or business. You may find that you are more able to earn a living from what you love doing this year. This trend continues for the next few months. However, you may experience some conflicts between your desire for security and a stable income and your needs for entertainment and pleasure, or possibly your romantic life. Expanding your personal resources is important to you now, and so is taking a few risks and enjoying your bounty! It can be challenging to accommodate both needs at once. As well, excitement in your romantic and social life may distract you from increasing your earning power. Try not to instigate change just for the sake of change, and avoid rash behavior. On the other hand, if you look for opportunities, you have more confidence and faith now to do something totally different, and inspiration may be found now. But do avoid blowing off responsibilities while you pursue your new vision.

Your rulers, Pluto and Mars, form stimulating connections to Mercury on the 8-9, representing opportunity periods for you. Intelligence is at a peak on the 20-21, when you can present your ideas to an especially receptive audience. You could get word about something now, or be called upon for advice. Red flag periods--times when you are not received as well as you would like, or are prone to impulsive, hasty, or ill-timed behavior--occur on the 3-4, 6-7, 10, 12-14 (especially), 19-20, and 27, when you may feel neglected, slighted, or unappreciated. Watch for a conflict of interests on the 12-14.

Opportunity periods for personal finances occur on the 4-7 and 30-31. Speculation and new financial initiatives are best avoided on the 1, 8-10, 19-20, and 23. The 1st may find you extravagant and the 10th, impulsive, with your finances.

As far as romantic and creative matters go, opportunities to enhance or attract romance occur on the 1, 5-6, 22-23, and 30-31 in particular. These days represent power days for personal magnetism, charisma, and creativity. Issues that could be annoying or disconcerting concerning romantic matters are more likely to occur on the 7, 12-14, 24-25, and 28. These would be less than ideal days to go on a first date, for example. With regard to your serious partnerships, long-term relationships tend to thrive on the 1, 20-21, and 24-25. Use these periods for strengthening your connection or attracting a serious partnership. Tensions in close partnerships are more likely on the 6-11, 14, 22-23, and 28-29, with the 6-7 the most challenging of the bunch. A face-off is likely now.

Better times to schedule job interviews or health appointments, and for success and happiness on the job, occur on the 8-9. Red flag periods for these matters occur on the 1, 12-13, 15-16, 19-20, and 23-24, when you should probably avoid scheduling health appointments or job interviews if feasible. Of these dates, the 12-13 is likely the most challenging for work and health affairs.

Venus graces your eighth house until the 27th. During this cycle, a financial boost is possible, or you may gain financially through your partner. A deep and intimate connection made now could be revitalizing and even healing. You are more inclined to want to smooth over differences in a partnership concerning the sharing of power, intimacy matters, finances, and other emotionally-charged topics. Intimate relationships are intensified now. Either you or your partner want a deeper union.

Venus brings warmth and charm to your solar ninth house from the 27th and into June. A taste for the exotic takes hold during this cycle. Routine affairs simply don't seem to satisfy. You receive pleasure from anything that expands your horizons, both physically and mentally.

Mercury transits your solar seventh house from the 6-22. During this time, the desire to bounce ideas off a partner or close friend is very strong. Communication becomes especially important to you. You feel attracted to intelligent people with whom you can communicate well and exchange ideas during this cycle. You know how to relate to others and you do it in a natural and warm manner. You will seek chatty and restless friends who stimulate your curiosity and mental abilities. You may attract a younger person into your life.

Mercury transits your solar eighth house from the 22nd. You are more intuitive now than usual, picking up all of the hidden cues from people around you and reading between the lines. This is an excellent cycle in which to do some financial planning and strategizing. Research is also highly favored. It's also easier for you to approach sensitive, intimate, and personal matters with rationality and logic. As such, this is a great time to open up conversations about topics that normally might cause waves, such as those revolving around the sharing of power, intimacy, and finances.

Mars activates and energizes your romance and pleasure sector all month. This is a very self-expressive time when you have lots of energy, but not necessarily self-discipline to match. You have more energy at your disposal to express yourself creatively, through activities with children, romantic activities, hobbies, or sports. Your love life may step up a notch, and this could be an especially passionate time. You tend to put more energy into play and pleasure! Be careful not to burn the candle at both ends. Also, watch out for a tendency to want to gamble. You are more playful than usual, and especially magnetic.
 

Highlights:

May 2 Full Moon in Scorpio in your solar first house. "Hey, what about me?" is the feeling of a Full Moon in the first house. You're looking for a bit of attention right now as you feel that life has been too "other-oriented" recently. Try to avoid infantile outbursts. Instead, work on your self-assertiveness. You do count, and there are ways to assert your own needs without stepping on others' toes. Finding a balance between autonomy and dependence is what this Full Moon is about for you. Your emotions are on your sleeve right now. It is a good time to put your needs first, but doing so with respect for others will take you further. Whether you can succeed as a leader is "tested" right now.

May 3-4 Your Personal New Moon. A new personal cycle begins for you, and you feel fresh and re-energized. It's all about you now, so it's time to put your best foot forward. A blast of personal energy comes your way, and showing your leadership skills works for you now. You are at your most convincing, as others are accepting you at face value. Some people find that the Moon in their sign brings with it a restless, discontented, and emotional state, and that there is more on their plate than they expected or wanted. If this is the case for you, remember that these feelings are there because you need to make a change, however big or small. Use it to stimulate activity and positive change.

May 3-5 Operative energies include the Sun conjunct Mercury and in hard aspect with Pluto; and Mercury square Saturn. Our wants are aligned with our thoughts, and problem-solving comes naturally. What we say or write now has impact, for better or for worse! However, we are not very good at truly listening to what others have to say, and when we do, we tend to read between the lines with a negative slant. Our minds are investigative. Some of us could feel troubled or stressed with these influences. For you, power plays may occur with partners or superiors. You could experience some tension due to a feeling of being misunderstood or unacknowledged.

May 5-6 Monthly money and income peak. You're looking at the world in terms of value and worth now, and what you have (or don't have) is on your mind. Money issues pop up now—the discovery of a way to increase your income, an unexpected gift or reward, or a brief and tiny financial crisis that motivates you to find new ways to make money are possible.

May 7-9 Operative energies include Venus opposition Pluto; Sun square Saturn and sextile Uranus; Mercury square Neptune and sextile Mars. Intense social interactions are likely during this period. Frustrations involving blocked will and evasiveness can drive us to come up with creative solutions to problems now. For you, you could be feeling unappreciated. A conflict, or even a face-off, with a close partner could be part of the picture, likely over money and issues of sharing. Career matters are challenging now, but lead to the discovery of new systems or solutions.

May 12-13 Romance and pleasure are highlights right now with the Moon in your solar fifth. The Moon is in your element, and so are you! The flowing, expressive, and spontaneous energy surrounding you attracts like-minded (and hearted) people. Be sure to take time to enjoy yourself, preferably around others! Keywords: romance, creativity, spontaneity, pleasure, self-expression.

May 12-14 Operative energies include Mars square Pluto, Sun square Neptune, and Venus sesquiquadrate Neptune. Our desires are intense and difficult to satisfy right now. Some disillusionments are likely, as we tend to see what we want to see rather than what is. For you, impulsiveness can be a problem. You might encounter aggressive people or situations now. Disappointments or disillusionments could occur now, particularly regarding close partnerships, negotiations, and career matters.

May 16 New Moon in late Taurus in your solar seventh house affects you until the next New Moon in June. Negotiations and diplomacy are highlighted during this period, as it is a favorable time to begin new relationships or to re-define existing ones. Issues of sharing and partnership come to the fore. Increased awareness of the need for someone significant to lean on or to rely on is often associated with this position. Working on, or resolving to work on, relationships that are mutually supportive is a good idea at this time. If you find yourself sensitive to the feeling of lacking support from partners, this may be a good time to ask yourself how companionable you are, and work on developing yourself in this area of life. You might just find that this is a period when you are at your most gracious. It is also a good time to make contacts and to make something public.

May 16-17 Your partnerships are highlighted right now, and it's time to compromise. Insecurities in your partnerships are brought to light now, and the best way to handle this is to understand that you need others instead of competing for the floor. Some people find this time of the lunar month an energy sapper, as they feel ignored or unnoticed. Trying to go it alone won't work just now. The spotlight is on other people for the time being, and it's best to let them shine. Concentrate on truly listening to those close to you, and on playing a supportive role. Perhaps not a time to be make a presentation or to come on strong to the world. You are feeling reflective rather than expressive.

May 19-20 Operative energies include Mars sesquiquadrate Saturn, Sun inconjunct Pluto, and Mercury opposite Jupiter and square Uranus. There is a feeling of being blocked when we are attempting to go after what we want. Adjustments are necessary now in order for our lives to move forward. The need to make changes in our life that will further our psychological development arise now. Decision-making, however, may be based on unrealistic or overly optimistic premises. For you, challenges with your work or daily routine can figure now. Feelings of going unnoticed or unacknowledged point to a need to make adjustments. Intimacy, sharing, and money matters could also challenge you now.

May 23-24 Monthly career and reputation peak. Your credibility is important at this time of the lunar month, and efforts at self-promotion might be made now. This is the time when you're noticed for what you've done or haven't done. Do your best to be in top form, make career adjustments if needed, and don't be afraid to show others exactly what you're made of. You're at your best when you are showing the world your practical, competent, and responsible side.

May 25 Venus trines Uranus. We lose our fear of taking risks at this time, and we happily embrace all that is new, unusual, and out-of-the-ordinary with regards to romantic involvements as well as financial undertakings. We have an offbeat, pleasant attitude and people are more willing to socialize. For you, this is a strong period for partnership matters. You are able to approach matters creatively and acceptingly, making this an ideal time to smooth over differences. You could be in store for a pleasant surprise from a partner. A secret may be uncovered, leaving you feeling released and confident.

May 30-31 Your Personal New Moon. A new personal cycle begins for you, and you feel fresh and re-energized. It's all about you now, so it's time to put your best foot forward. A blast of personal energy comes your way, and showing your leadership skills works for you now. You are at your most convincing, as others are accepting you at face value. Some people find that the Moon in their sign brings with it a restless, discontented, and emotional state, and that there is more on their plate than they expected or wanted. If this is the case for you, remember that these feelings are there because you need to make a change, however big or small. Use it to stimulate activity and positive change.

May 31 Full Moon in Sagittarius in your solar first house. "Hey, what about me?" is the feeling of a Full Moon in the first house. You're looking for a bit of attention right now as you feel that life has been too "other-oriented" recently. Try to avoid infantile outbursts. Instead, work on your self-assertiveness. You do count, and there are ways to assert your own needs without stepping on others' toes. Finding a balance between autonomy and dependence is what this Full Moon is about for you. Your emotions are on your sleeve right now. It is a good time to put your needs first, but doing so with respect for others will take you further.

Scorpio (Born November 13 to 22) and Scorpio Ascendant from 20 to 30 degrees Scorpio:

April 2007: Scorpio Horoscope: Love, Career, & General Trends
 

April

scorpio the scorpionOverview. Until the 10th, the Sun continues to illuminate your solar fifth house, where it feels right at home! The Sun is the natural ruler of the fifth house, and this transit points to a playful, mostly happy period of the year. It's a time when you are more inclined to "play"--a good period for letting your hair down and revealing your "inner child". Drama, however big or small, tends to appeal now, and your mind is on your hobbies, romance, pleasure, and children. How do you entertain yourself and others? This is a strong period for discovering what gives you the most pleasure. You enjoy feedback from others more than usual, but you do prefer to be the center of attention. It's a generous, pleasantly emotional, and creative period.

From the 10th, the Sun illuminates your sixth house. During this cycle, you take more pride in the work you do and in your health routines than any other time of the year. You are sorting through the experiences of the last several months, separating the worthwhile from the worthless. This is a good time to build your skills, to get organized, and to attend to your health and wellbeing. It’s a great time to make improvements to your regular routines. Your self-esteem and your ego are tied up in the work you do and in the services you give. Details are more important to you now. It's time to bring order to your life by focusing on the little things that make up the whole. This cycle presents an opportunity to get rid of what doesn't work in your life, while also discovering what does. You could seek distinction and strive towards perfection in your work. Efficiency should be your goal now. Your physical health, as well as the relationship between your body and your mind, are in focus.

This is an excellent month for finding solutions to irksome problems, especially from the second week of April. Your energy and vigor increases, and so does your resistance (both physical and mental). You have all the resources at hand to get your life on track. A new position or task on the job keeps you busy, and any domestic conflicts you have been experiencing are ironed out by mid-April. Financial and romantic opportunities arise in the last week of the month, and recognition on a professional level warms your spirit around the 19th.

Jupiter retrogrades this month, kicking off a retrograde period that lasts until the first week of August, and involves some re-thinking of matters surrounding your personal finances and possessions. By August, you will be ready to move forward in these areas with gusto. Saturn's direct motion this month suggests that any stagnation you've been experiencing with your career and reputation will begin to lift and these matters start to move forward. It's also a helpful influence for communications and learning.

Your rulers, Pluto and Mars, forms stimulating connections to each other, Chiron, the Sun, and Mercury on the 4-5, 15-19, and 26, representing opportunity periods for you. Others naturally appreciate the unique qualities that make you "you" on the 15-19. You can enjoy increased authority and personal influence during this period. Intelligence is at a peak on the 26th, when you can present your ideas to an especially receptive audience. Red flag periods--times when you are not received as well as you would like, or are prone to impulsive, hasty, or ill-timed behavior--occur on the 9-11, when social blunders or miscommunications are more likely.

Opportunity periods for personal finances occur on the 9-10 and 21. Speculation and new financial initiatives are best avoided on the 2-4, 24-25, 27-28, and 30, when your financial planet forms challenging or awkward aspects.

As far as romantic and creative matters go, opportunities to enhance or attract romance occur on the 9-12 and 21-22. These days represent power days for personal magnetism, charisma, and creativity. Issues that could be annoying or disconcerting concerning romantic matters are more likely to occur on the 2-4, 14, 24-25. These would be less than ideal days to go on a first date, for example. With regard to your serious partnerships, long-term relationships tend to thrive on the 5-8, 24-25, 27-28, and 30. Use these periods for strengthening your connection or attracting a serious partnership. Tensions in close partnerships are more likely on the 1-4, 10-11, 20-23, and 29.

Better times to schedule job interviews or health appointments, and for success and happiness on the job, occur on the 4-5, 14-17, and 28. Red flag periods for these matters occur on the 1-2, 21-24, and 27-30, when you should probably avoid scheduling health appointments or job interviews if feasible. Matters related to your career and reputation tend to thrive on the 3-5, 7-12, and 18-19 (especially). Challenges with these matters are more likely to occur on the 1-2, 21-23, and 24-25, when others may not see you in the best light!

Venus treks through your partnership sector from the 3-29. Special attention to and from a partner is in focus, and flattery will get you everywhere if you use it wisely. One-to-one relating appeals to you more than group activities or more casual connections. Smoothing out your close personal relationships is what makes you happy during this cycle. If single, you are more willing than normal to enter into a committed relationship. In general, you are adaptable when it comes to your affections--very willing to compromise, negotiate, and make peace.

Mercury transits your solar fifth house from the 4-22. During this cycle, there is a powerful mental connection with your creative self-expression. You are proud of your ideas, and very good at expressing them to others smoothly now. Your thinking is more creative than usual. You tend to entertain others with your conversation, and your sense of humor (and of mischief!) is especially strong. Your thoughts turn to children, pleasures, or romance during this expressive cycle. 

Mercury transits your solar sixth house from the 22nd. This is a good placement for Mercury, as it is the natural ruler of the sixth house. It's an excellent period for sorting out the details of your daily existence. You are inclined to make to-do lists, pay bills and sort out clutter, and to do detail work on the job. Health matters are most certainly on your brain as well, and you could be thinking of scheduling check-ups or busy researching ways to improve your health. You may also show a keener interest in improving your basic skills. Your approach to work during this cycle is pleasant, happy, and logical for the most part, unless you allow worry or scattered energy to enter the picture. You are inclined to want to learn new work skills, or to improve your skills and output in terms of work. There is likely to be more activity, movement, contact, and communications with co-workers now. You tend to take more interest in organizing your working environment--and this is an excellent time to do so, as you are especially objective and intelligent when it comes to getting a handle on your daily affairs and all of the "little things" that contribute to a feeling of efficiency and competency. Menial tasks become more prominent. Watch, however, for tension or idle chit-chat interfering with your work output during this cycle.

Mars moves through your fourth house all month, energizing your domestic life and relationships with family. This might express itself as more activity on the home front. You could literally apply your energy to working around the house, for example. Or, you might find that there is a lot of hustle and bustle in your home. Energized interaction with family is also very possible now, and this can be positive or negative, depending on how the energy is handled! You are slightly more defensive and certainly more protective than usual during this period. You might engage in arguments with, or on behalf of, those closest to you.

Highlights:

April 2 Full Moon in Libra in your solar eleventh house. Relationships come into focus--dependency issues surface now. You've been focusing on what brings you pleasure—your hobbies, romantic activities, and so forth. Now you realize that the role you play in others' lives (as a spouse, parent, friend) is an important element in your overall happiness. You're looking for validation from friends and group activities now. You may be called upon to perform a humanitarian gesture. For example, a friend may experience a little crisis and asks for your help. You may suddenly find yourself around many people, perhaps after a period of relative solitude or private time.

April 6-7 Your Personal New Moon. A new personal cycle begins for you, and you feel fresh and re-energized. It's all about you now, so it's time to put your best foot forward. A blast of personal energy comes your way, and showing your leadership skills works for you now. You are at your most convincing, as others are accepting you at face value. Some people find that the Moon in their sign brings with it a restless, discontented, and emotional state, and that there is more on their plate than they expected or wanted. If this is the case for you, remember that these feelings are there because you need to make a change, however big or small. Use it to stimulate activity and positive change.

April 7-8 Operative energies include Mercury sextile Venus and the Sun trine Saturn. This is a good time for us to take care of practical and "earthly" matters. Meeting responsibilities is satisfying now. For you, this is a highly productive and possibly profitable period for all work and career matters.

April 8-9 Monthly money and income peak. You're looking at the world in terms of value and worth now, and what you have (or don't have) is on your mind. Money issues pop up now—the discovery of a way to increase your income, an unexpected gift or reward, or a brief and tiny financial crisis that motivates you to find new ways to make money are possible.

April 9-12 Operative energies include Sun trine Jupiter and sextile Neptune; and Mercury square Pluto. Idealistic and humanitarian goals or impulses surface now, although a suspicious attitude or stance could also be part of the picture. For you, this is a strong period for personal finances and work matters. Something arrives unexpectedly that boosts your confidence in these areas of your life.

April 15-16 Romance and pleasure are highlights right now with the Moon in your solar fifth. The Moon is in your element, and so are you! The flowing, expressive, and spontaneous energy surrounding you attracts like-minded (and hearted) people. Be sure to take time to enjoy yourself, preferably around others! Keywords: romance, creativity, spontaneity, pleasure, self-expression.

April 17 New Moon late Aries in your solar sixth house affects you until the next New Moon in May. The New Moon in the sixth house heralds a time when new diet regimes, healthy routines, and satisfying work schedules can be successfully initiated. It is a time of taking care of business, handling details, and increasing your efficiency by re-organizing or simply by working enthusiastically at tasks that help you get caught up in your work. It is also a good time for analysis of any sort, as critical thinking is now at its peak. This period is marked by a desire to sort things out, but also to be useful. 

April 18-19 Operative energies include Sun trine Pluto and Mercury sextile Chiron. Intensity of focus, healing conversations, and a renewed sense of purpose are with us now. For you, this is a strong period for practical matters and a sense of security. You could win some admiration or respect now. Career matters are also strong.

April 19-20 Your partnerships are highlighted right now, and it's time to compromise. Insecurities in your partnerships are brought to light now, and the best way to handle this is to understand that you need others instead of competing for the floor. Some people find this time of the lunar month an energy sapper, as they feel ignored or unnoticed. Trying to go it alone won't work just now. The spotlight is on other people for the time being, and it's best to let them shine. Concentrate on truly listening to those close to you, and on playing a supportive role. Perhaps not a time to be make a presentation or to come on strong to the world. You are feeling reflective rather than expressive.

April 21-22 Operative energies include Mercury trine Jupiter and Saturn and sextile Neptune. Strong productivity on mental levels characterizes this combination. It's a good period for coming up with successful business plans and strategies. This is yet another combination in April that is strong for career, work, and finances. This can be a time of great constructive accomplishment, and is excellent for news on the financial front.

April 25-26 Monthly career and reputation peak. Your credibility is important at this time of the lunar month, and efforts at self-promotion might be made now. This is the time when you're noticed for what you've done or haven't done. Do your best to be in top form, make career adjustments if needed, and don't be afraid to show others exactly what you're made of. You're at your best when you are showing the world your practical, competent, and responsible side.

April 26-30 A creative combination occurs now, involving a T-square between Venus, Jupiter, Mars and Uranus. Saturn and Neptune form harmonious angles to the Venus-Jupiter opposition. This exciting and possibly upsetting configuration stimulates your pleasure, romance, intimacy, and financial sectors. Sudden and unexpected happenings can occur with romantic partners, children, or creative projects. You are much more willing to experiment and take chances, to try new things, and to be a little wild. If you are artistically or creatively inclined, you'll discover a fresh approach or technique which may radically alter your work, and you'll have bursts of sudden inspiration and intense activity. Also, unusual, exciting romantic activities are quite possible now. Watch for differences of opinion with a partner now. One of you may want more intimacy.

Scorpio (Born November 13 to 22) and Scorpio Ascendant from 20 to 30 degrees Scorpio:

March 2007: Scorpio Horoscope: Love, Career, & General Trends
 

March

scorpio the scorpionOverview. The Sun continues to spotlight your solar fourth house until the 10th--a cycle in which home and family matters capture your attention and are a strong source of pride. It's a time when worldly matters are not as important to you. Use this energy to find ways to improve your family relations and your home environment. During this heartwarming cycle, you would do best to allow yourself to explore your inner needs so that you can nurture yourself and others in a healthy, growth-oriented manner.

The Sun illuminates your fifth house from the 10th. After a period of “nesting”, you are coming out of your shell, ready to perform and to express yourself creatively. This is a very playful period of the year, when you are inspired creatively and emotionally. After a period of self-protectiveness, you are now more spontaneous and more willing to take risks. You take more pride than usual in your creations, your love affairs, your children, and your hobbies. Pleasure and amusement play an important role in your search for freedom of self-expression now. Show off your best colors! You want others to take notice, and you are more sensitive to whether people appreciate you. More than any time of the year, this is the cycle in which you focus on having fun, enjoying romance, and expressing yourself creatively. Your hobbies, leisure time, moments spent with children, gaming time, and so forth, all come into focus at this time of year. This is a cycle in which you find joy in expressing who you are--when your "inner child" comes out to play. This is a time when you are more flirtatious than usual, and when you might take a few risks in life--not only gambling with games but with life itself. You might be a bit of a showman at this time. You are likely feeling good in general, and you tend to spread the joy.

Material benefits from your career are very likely this month, as well as increased respectability and security. You are especially rooted in the world of the five senses now, and tending to practical matters brings rewards. Romantic unrest or surprises arise in the first week of the month. Differences are ironed out by the second week. Some will experience this energy through relationships with their children. A new start on a romantic level arrives from the 19th, when a solar eclipse brings brand new energy to your love life for months to come.

From the 7th, Mercury turns direct and matters that have been stagnant for you begin to move forward. Mercury leaves its storm on the 16th, when "all things Mercury" tend to resume near-normal pace, and leaves its shadow on March 27th. From the 16-27th, we have a chance to revisit matters that may have stumped or annoyed us while Mercury was retrograde, or to put into action ideas that came to us during this cycle. For you, communications with friends, groups, intimate partners, and family members resume with less confusion and more clarity.

Two eclipses occur this month. One is a Lunar Eclipse on the 3rd at 13 degrees Virgo. Its opposition to Uranus brings a surprising turn of events. The other is a Solar Eclipse on the 19th at 28 degrees of Pisces. The effects of eclipses stay with us for as long as six months, and they reveal main areas of focus for this half-year period. A general rule of thumb regarding eclipses is to avoid major decision-making in the week before an eclipse. This is because new information that could change our perspective often is revealed in the week after the eclipse. Therefore, major decision-making is best avoided from March 1-3 and then March 12-19th.

The Lunar Eclipse on the 3rd stimulates your solar tenth house. Surprises surrounding career and reputation matters may be in store. Something that has been "in hiding" or brewing under the surface of things comes to light, or there is a significant fruition or culmination. This could manifest, for example, as a career change or challenge that you didn't expect, a surprise revelation from a co-worker or boss, a new promotion or career direction dropped into your lap, and other such possibilities. 

The Solar Eclipse on the 19th marks a new beginning for you. Letting go of the past is necessary in order to move forward. This eclipse occurs in your solar fifth house, suggesting a new approach to love, children, or creative projects. A new set-up in existing love affairs or a new love affair altogether may be formed in the coming months, as well as a sense of renewal and reinvigoration with regards to your ability to express yourself spontaneously and creatively. This is a phase when you have an increased awareness of your need for fun and leisure activities.

Jupiter trines Saturn this month, linking your second and tenth houses in a pleasing way. This is a period of constructive accomplishment. We are practical, realistic, and our judgment is especially sound--and we derive much satisfaction from practical accomplishment. The key to harnessing this wonderful energy is to identify and find pleasure in the simple things that make you happy. For you, some material benefits can come from your career. Alternatively, you may have more resources to invest into your career or business. You may find that you are more able to earn a living from what you love doing this year. This trend continues for the next few months.

Your ruler, Pluto, forms stimulating connections to Mercury and Venus this month on the 1st and 16-17, representing opportunity periods for you. New knowledge and an opportunity to achieve a mental gain comes your way on the 1st. On the 16-17, romantic and creative sparks lead to growth. Red flag periods--times when you are not received as well as you would like, or are prone to impulsive, hasty, or ill-timed behavior--occur on the 15th, 19-20, and 28-29. Try not to let the past interfere with the present. If a special someone is hell-bent on bringing up the past, be sensitive, but emphasize the good in the present as well.

Opportunity periods for personal finances occur on the 7-8, 14-18, and 22-24. Speculation and new financial initiatives are best avoided on the 1-2, 9th, and 21st, when your financial planet is challenged.

As far as romantic and creative matters go, opportunities to enhance or attract romance occur on the 9-10 and 24-26. These days represent power days for personal magnetism, charisma, and creativity. Issues that could be annoying or disconcerting concerning romantic matters are more likely to occur in the first week of the month and the 27th. These would be less than ideal days to go on a first date, for example. For more serious partnerships, long-term relationships tend to thrive on the 2-3, 7-10 (especially), 16, and 30-31. Tensions in close partnerships are more likely on the 17-18, 21, and 28-29.

Better times to schedule job interviews or health appointments, and for success and happiness on the job, occur on the 23-26. Red flag periods for these matters occur on the 1-2, 21-22, and 27-31, when you should probably avoid scheduling health appointments or job interviews if feasible. Matters related to your career and reputation tend to thrive on the 3-5, when unusual or surprising events are likely to arise. Challenges with these matters are more likely to occur on the 8-10, 18-22, and 24-31, when others may not see you in the best light!

Venus transits your solar sixth from the 9th. The areas of life where you are most likely to express your social, romantic, and artistic qualities are in establishing a happy and harmonious work environment through friendly relations with colleagues. Romantic and social activities may revolve around your working environment. You are generally well liked and respected socially on the job right now. This is a good time to promote harmony and good will on the job. Some laziness is possible now, as you tend to associate pleasure with work. Perhaps you are socializing more than usual on the job. You have good team spirit during this cycle, and you are more tactful and obliging with your co-workers. You are less inclined to fall in love for the sake of love itself during this cycle. Your tendency is to consider whether it is clever to do so! You're most successful doing tasks that involve cooperation and team harmony, or the personal, human side of things.

Mercury transits your solar fourth house all month. This is a time when you can enjoy increased powers of concentration. You may require solitude in order to get mental work done during this cycle. Your memory is more retentive than usual, and your thoughts often turn to personal matters, family, and loved ones. You might particularly enjoy discussions about your early life, the past, or family matters during this cycle. In fact, it's a great time to open up conversations with loved ones, as you are more rational when it comes to personal matters now. Your mind often wanders to domestic concerns, and issues surrounding your home, family, and personal past. On the other hand, this transit sometimes indicates an especially busy, and perhaps hectic, period on the domestic scene. For example, you might take home work or find that people drop by your home often during this cycle.

Mars continues to energize your solar third house until the 24th. During this cycle, you are likely to exert your energy and initiative
into building mental resourcefulness and an aggressive, active intellect. There is a liking for competitive mental pastimes that present an intellectual challenge now, and you enjoy learning, argument, debate, and discussion more than usual. The tendency to speak before you think is high.

Mars moves through your fourth house from the 24th, energizing your domestic life and relationships with family. This might express itself as more activity on the home front. You could literally apply your energy to working around the house, for example. Or, you might find that there is a lot of hustle and bustle in your home. Energized interaction with family is also very possible now, and this can be positive or negative, depending on how the energy is handled! You are slightly more defensive and certainly more protective than usual during this period. You might engage in arguments with, or on behalf of, those closest to you.

Overall, the best period of the month for you is the 10-21, when life tends to flow smoothly without much in the way of opposition.

Highlights:

March 1-3 Operative energies include Mercury sextile Pluto, Venus sextile Chiron, Mars semi-square Jupiter. New information begins to come to light, and we have the power to heal our social relationships. Because this period occurs just before a lunar eclipse, hold off on finalizing any deals or plans if you can, however. But do pay attention to the information that surfaces now. For you, happy communications lift your spirits, and a partnership runs especially well.

March 2-3 Monthly career and reputation peak. Your credibility is important at this time of the lunar month, and efforts at self-promotion might be made now. This is the time when you're noticed for what you've done or haven't done. Do your best to be in top form, make career adjustments if needed, and don't be afraid to show others exactly what you're made of. You're at your best when you are showing the world your practical, competent, and responsible side.

March 3 Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Virgo in your solar tenth house. Flaws in an important system in your life come to light. The effects of this eclipse last for six months. You are suddenly in the limelight—everyone notices you now. It's time to put your best foot forward, but be sure to do so with grace and consideration for others, or you may just make a display that you regret later. Perhaps you've been hiding yourself away, taking it easy. Now you need a little attention, and career matters come to a head. You're called to perform, perhaps on a moment's notice, and it's best to keep your cool and do whatever you can to show your competence. A sudden job opportunity, or some form of assistance with regards to career, home, or property matters, could be part of the picture. This can also produce an event that requires you to take charge and show your responsible side.

March 4-5 The Sun conjuncts Uranus in your solar fourth house. Sudden and unexpected changes in your domestic situation and in your most personal, inner life are likely now. Being liberated from the past, from outdated conditioning, or from expectations which limit you and being catapulted into a situation in which you may feel quite inexperienced is also characteristic of this time.

March 8-9 Operative energies include Venus trine Jupiter and Saturn, Venus sextile Neptune, and Sun square Jupiter. This is an especially strong influence for creative output and is also excellent for cementing relationships. Because the grand trine affects your houses of substance, it's strong for practical affairs, work, and especially finances.

March 9-10 Your Personal New Moon. A new personal cycle begins for you, and you feel fresh and re-energized. It's all about you now, so it's time to put your best foot forward. A blast of personal energy comes your way, and showing your leadership skills works for you now. You are at your most convincing, as others are accepting you at face value. Some people find that the Moon in their sign brings with it a restless, discontented, and emotional state, and that there is more on their plate than they expected or wanted. If this is the case for you, remember that these feelings are there because you need to make a change, however big or small. Use it to stimulate activity and positive change.

March 12-13 Monthly money and income peak. You're looking at the world in terms of value and worth now, and what you have (or don't have) is on your mind. Money issues pop up now—the discovery of a way to increase your income, an unexpected gift or reward, or a brief and tiny financial crisis that motivates you to find new ways to make money are possible.

March 15-16 Operative energies include Mars conjunct Chiron, Mercury sextile Venus, and Venus trine Pluto. Gaining new perspectives on romantic and sexual relationships, or on creative projects, occurs now. We seek out others, but won't settle for superficial connections. This can be a time of epiphanies and release of suppressed energies. Important contracts and new beginnings, however, are best avoided until after the Solar Eclipse on the 18th.

March 18-19 Romance and pleasure are highlights right now with the Moon in your solar fifth. The Moon is in your element, and so are you! The flowing, expressive, and spontaneous energy surrounding you attracts like-minded (and hearted) people. Be sure to take time to enjoy yourself, preferably around others! Keywords: romance, creativity, spontaneity, pleasure, self-expression.

March 18 New Moon Solar Eclipse in late Pisces in your solar fifth house affects you for the next six months. A time to focus on goals involving compassion, letting go of the past, and acceptance. Nagging problems from the past six months need to be dealt with and put behind you. Creative self-expression comes under the realm of the fifth house, and a New Moon occurring here sparks the creative juices. Romantic inclinations are also highlighted, as are any kind of celebratory, playful, and just-for-fun endeavors. You will be especially aware of your need for approval and feedback from others, deriving pleasure from the ways your own creativity impact the world around you. This can be a passionate time for you, and a time when you might feel more bold than usual. If you are feeling good about yourself, and especially if you have taken advantage of the time for re-building of confidence that the New Moon in the fourth house brought, you will fairly radiate during this expressive period. 

March 22-25 A mixed bag of energies operant now brings challenges as well as enlightenment. Mars in your eleventh house opposes Saturn, sextiles Jupiter, and conjuncts Neptune.

March 22-23 Your partnerships are highlighted right now, and it's time to compromise. Insecurities in your partnerships are brought to light now, and the best way to handle this is to understand that you need others instead of competing for the floor. Some people find this time of the lunar month an energy sapper, as they feel ignored or unnoticed. Trying to go it alone won't work just now. The spotlight is on other people for the time being, and it's best to let them shine. Concentrate on truly listening to those close to you, and on playing a supportive role. Perhaps not a time to be make a presentation or to come on strong to the world. You are feeling reflective rather than expressive.

March 28-29 Venus forms tense angles to Chiron and Pluto.

March 29-30 Monthly career and reputation peak. Your credibility is important at this time of the lunar month, and efforts at self-promotion might be made now. This is the time when you're noticed for what you've done or haven't done. Do your best to be in top form, make career adjustments if needed, and don't be afraid to show others exactly what you're made of. You're at your best when you are showing the world your practical, competent, and responsible side.

Scorpio (Born November 13 to 22) and Scorpio Ascendant from 20 to 30 degrees Scorpio:

February 2007: Scorpio Horoscope: Love, Career, & General Trends
 

February

scorpio the scorpionOverview. Until the 9th, the Sun continues to put a spotlight on your solar third house--a transit that began in January, and a time of the year in which you are most likely to be a "busy bee". Communications, short trips, errand-running, and general busy-ness feature now. You could have a finger in many pies, so to speak, as your curiosity is piqued by a larger variety of things than usual. Used well, this could be a period in which you come up with solutions to a number of problems. You are more inclined to take pride in your intellectual accomplishments and/or your ability to socialize and make connections.

From the 9th, the Sun illuminates your solar fourth house, spotlighting your house of family and home. These areas are your instinctive focus during this period. Your family, home, property concerns, roots, and heritage come into focus and become a source of pride. You are likely quite preoccupied with feelings of security and your inner experiences. This is a time when you send down roots and seek a feeling of belonging. You could be thrust into a position of leadership on the home front. Ego confrontations with family members are possible now, but the best way to handle this energy is to do your best to strengthen your relationship to your family and your home base. This is a time to do what you can to build trust in your family life and a strong foundation within yourself, so that regardless of what you meet in the outside world over the next months, you have a secure place to return to. Besides spending more time tending to domestic affairs, the focus can be on cultivating and nourishing your inner foundations that support you and your growth. This is a time to collect yourself--to fill your well, so to speak.

Although your heart is with your home now, developments in your career could conflict with your personal plans around the 10th. A romantic attraction or an unexpected chance to have a great time invigorates you around the 7th. Watch your pocketbook--you could be feeling so good that you temporarily forget that there will be bills to pay next month! This is an excellent time to work on intellectual tasks with more vigor and passion. There isn’t a project or task that you can’t master in February.

This month, Mercury retrogrades from the 13th forward (until March 7th). Mercury retrograde cycles are periods in which communications and transportation matters don't go as smoothly as usual. All Mercury retrograde cycles particularly affect you in terms of communications with friends or groups, as well as intimate communications and shared financial resources, because Mercury rules these areas of your life.
Occurring in your solar fourth house this time, extra care should be exercised when it comes to family relations. Be as non-judgmental as you can with family members. New initiatives surrounding home and property are best left for a better time. It would be wise to be especially clear when it comes to communicating with friends, groups, intimate partners, and family members, or take this time to re-examine issues rather than communicating about them prematurely.

Your ruler, Pluto, forms some pleasing connections with Mercury and the Sun this month on the 1 and 16-17. These represent opportunity periods for you. The 1st is a period in which you are able to communicate with increased influence. It's also a strong period for financial matters. On the 16-17, you are recognized for your leadership skills. Red flag periods--times when you are not received as well as you would like, or are prone to impulsive, hasty, or ill-timed behavior--occur on the 2 and 19-20. These issues may revolve around home, family, and romance--matters that certainly grab much of your attention in February. You may feel unappreciated on the 19-20.

Opportunity periods for personal finances occur on the 1-4 especially as well as the 17-18. Speculation and new financial initiatives are best avoided on the 8-9 and 28.

As far as romantic and creative matters go, opportunities to enhance or attract romance occur on the 7-8. These represent power days for personal magnetism, charisma, and creativity. Issues that could be annoying or disconcerting concerning romantic matters are more likely to occur on the 25 and 27-28. These would be less than ideal days to go on a first date, for example. For more serious partnerships, long-term relationships tend to thrive on the 1, 7, and 12-13. Tensions in close partnerships are more likely on the 9, 14, 18-20, and 24-25.

Better times to schedule job interviews or health appointments, and for success and happiness on the job, occur on the 2-4 and 12-13. Red flag periods for these matters occur on the 14, 17, 23-24, and 28, when you should probably avoid scheduling health appointments or job interviews if feasible. Career and reputation matters run especially well on the 3-4, 7-8, and particularly the 16-19, when some form of recognition is likely. Challenges with these matters are more likely on the 2 and 10, when you may not be seen in an especially favorable light by superiors or the public.

Venus transits your solar fourth house until the 13th. During this cycle, you are especially fond of the life of the home and family. You are more receptive and gentle on a romantic level, and tend to be sentimental or nostalgic now. You may particularly value the aesthetics in and around your home during this period. If things are out of whack on the home front, you will do whatever you can to create a peaceful and stable atmosphere. Loyalty and sensitivity in your relationships are more important to you than typically. You might focus on ways to earn money in or from your home. This is a calming influence--a time when simple pleasures most appeal.

Venus transits your fifth house from the 13th. This is an expressive period for the goddess of love! It's natural for you to turn on the charm without even lifting a finger. You are especially attracted to aesthetic forms of recreation. You feel a little more playful now, and love matters tend to be laced with a touch of drama. That shouldn't be a problem--in fact, you kind of like it that way for the time being. More loving and appreciative relationships with your children may also figure now. Your powers of attraction skyrocket during this cycle. Yet, you are not aggressive in your approach to love. Instead, you attract more if you allow yourself to be pursued during this cycle. Creative self-expression of any kind is favored at this time. At this time, you instinctively know how to place yourself in the best light in order to make a good impression on others. Any love affair begun now will be characterized by good cheer, having fun, and a fair share of emotional drama!

Mercury moves through your solar fourth house all month. This is a time when you can enjoy increased powers of concentration. You may require solitude in order to get mental work done during this cycle. Your memory is more retentive than usual, and your thoughts often turn to personal matters, family, and loved ones. You might particularly enjoy discussions about your early life, the past, or family matters during this cycle. In fact, it's a great time to open up conversations with loved ones, as you are more rational when it comes to personal matters now. Your mind often wanders to domestic concerns, and issues surrounding your home, family, and personal past. On the other hand, this transit sometimes indicates an especially busy, and perhaps hectic, period on the domestic scene. For example, you might take home work or find that people drop by your home often during this cycle. Do be more cautious with your communications and with these matters while Mercury is retrograde from the 13th through to March 7th, however. Be as clear as you can to avoid misunderstandings.

Mars continues to activate your solar second house until the 12th. During this cycle, you are inclined to exert energy and initiative into making money and business dealings. You can be more resourceful than usual at this time, but you could also be inclined to rash decisions or risk-taking with money. Circumstances in life are likely to create a situation where you may have to take the lead in handling personal finances. You may be placed in a position where you have to make important monetary decisions yourself. If you have a business, it will be difficult to avoid spending lavishly on equipment and office supplies. A young man or an assertive type of individual may come up with challenging offers and new suggestions. You are more motivated to make money now. At the root of this is likely to be a quest for a sense of personal freedom.

Mars energizes your solar third house from the 12th. You are likely to have many ideas and plans going during this transit, and you might be inclined to scatter your energies as a result. Channeled well, this is a good time to sell your ideas to others, or to present your case. You may be especially busy running errands and communicating with others. More articulate than usual, you may also have a more assertive, self-centered, or provocative communication style at this time. As such, discussions may become heated, or they may escalate into arguments, more easily. If this is the case, it's likely because you are taking things very personally right now, or because you are over-identifying with your beliefs and ideas. A tendency to be impatient or impulsive while driving or while performing manual tasks, generally with the hands, may lead to accidents, so it's wise to be careful on the road or while operating machinery or even using scissors! This is an excellent time to work on intellectual tasks with more vigor and passion.

Overall, the best period of the month for you is the 13-23, when your natural charm is well-received and you feel energetically supported by others and by life's circumstances. It's easier than usual to assert yourself without making waves.

Highlights:

February 2 Full Moon in Leo in your solar ninth house. Your attention to the logical world of reason has been a focus in the last two weeks. Now you feel a crisis of lack. Your personal beliefs may be tested now. Your impulses and faith matter, and all of the attention you've been giving to mundane affairs has you wondering when you're going to have some fun. You want to take a leap of faith now. Your adventurous side pushes up and out, demanding attention.

February 3-4 Monthly career and reputation peak. Your credibility is important at this time of the lunar month, and efforts at self-promotion might be made now. This is the time when you're noticed for what you've done or haven't done. Do your best to be in top form, make career adjustments if needed, and don't be afraid to show others exactly what you're made of. You're at your best when you are showing the world your practical, competent, and responsible side.

February 3-4 The Sun sextiles Jupiter and Mars sextiles Uranus. This is a strong period for learning, growth, advancement, and adventurous activities. It's favorable for marketing, publishing, and advertising, as well as any self-promotion activities. We may be especially sociable, tolerant, and generous. Confidence comes from a stronger sense of who we are and the principles we represent, as well as an ability to take healthy and reasonable risks.

February 7-8 The Sun conjuncts Neptune and Venus conjuncts Uranus. This is a "make a wish" day. Spiritual goals come into focus. As well, bringing a spirit of friendship and freedom into close personal relationships is featured. Unexpected events and/or synchronicities occur now in your romantic relationships and in your domestic affairs.

February 10 The Sun in your fourth house opposes Saturn in your tenth house. Restrictions and pressures may be felt now revolving around your professional affairs. Feeling bogged down by these pressures is possible, affecting your home life. Avoid new initiatives now if you can.

February 10-11 Your Personal New Moon. A new personal cycle begins for you, and you feel fresh and re-energized. It's all about you now, so it's time to put your best foot forward. A blast of personal energy comes your way, and showing your leadership skills works for you now. You are at your most convincing, as others are accepting you at face value. Some people find that the Moon in their sign brings with it a restless, discontented, and emotional state, and that there is more on their plate than they expected or wanted. If this is the case for you, remember that these feelings are there because you need to make a change, however big or small. Use it to stimulate activity and positive change.

February 12-13 Monthly money and income peak. You're looking at the world in terms of value and worth now, and what you have (or don't have) is on your mind. Money issues pop up now—the discovery of a way to increase your income, an unexpected gift or reward, or a brief and tiny financial crisis that motivates you to find new ways to make money are possible.

February 18 New Moon in late Aquarius in your solar fourth house affects you until the next New Moon. A time to focus on goals involving friendships, long-term happiness, dreams, and wishes. Home and family may be a focus during this phase. On a personal, developmental level, this is a time to not only listen to what is in your gut, but to pay homage to those feelings! What makes you feel safe and secure? This is the time to explore and develop a sense of inner security. Although the fourth house is associated with the home, it is an angular, cardinal house that stirs up activity. This is a time of re-organization and heightened awareness of your roots, issues of intimacy and vulnerability, and it's an excellent time to come in touch with your feelings and needs. Focusing on your support system and the manner in which you support others is also probable. This is a good time to make long-range plans for the future, to do any type of re-organizing or even re-modeling of the home or home environment, and for family-related activities.

February 19-20 Romance and pleasure are highlights right now with the Moon in your solar fifth. The Moon is in your element, and so are you! The flowing, expressive, and spontaneous energy surrounding you attracts like-minded (and hearted) people. Be sure to take time to enjoy yourself, preferably around others! Keywords: romance, creativity, spontaneity, pleasure, self-expression.

February 23-24 Your partnerships are highlighted right now, and it's time to compromise. Insecurities in your partnerships are brought to light now, and the best way to handle this is to understand that you need others instead of competing for the floor. Some people find this time of the lunar month an energy sapper, as they feel ignored or unnoticed. Trying to go it alone won't work just now. The spotlight is on other people for the time being, and it's best to let them shine. Concentrate on truly listening to those close to you, and on playing a supportive role. Perhaps not a time to be make a presentation or to come on strong to the world. You are feeling reflective rather than expressive.

February 24-25 Tense angles operant now include Mars-Uranus, Venus-Neptune, and Venus-Saturn. Relations are likely to be tense. Disillusionments with finances as well as personal relationships are possible. Reckless behavior has consequences. For you, this is a period in which disappointments, misunderstandings, and tense relations with a close partner are possible. You are inclined towards impulsive behavior.

Scorpio (Born November 13 to 22) and Scorpio Ascendant from 20 to 30 degrees Scorpio:

January 2007: Scorpio Horoscope: Love, Career, & General Trends
 

January

scorpio the scorpionOverview. Until the 10th, the Sun puts a spotlight on your solar second house. This is the most "financial" period of the year for you. You might have a more materialistic view of life for the time being, or you have an increased interest in your own possessions, during this cycle. You are more attracted to objects and possessions that give you a sense of comfort, status, or luxury now. You probably should be on the lookout for a tendency to create your own financial stress due to extravagant spending habits. At this point in the year, you are unlikely to take many risks, and you can be quite resistant to change. This is a time when "comfort zones" are more important to you than usual--you value the familiar.

From the 10th, the Sun highlights your solar third house--a time of the year in which you are most likely to be a "busy bee". You are exploring and searching now, making connections, and paying attention to your immediate environment. Social interaction is emphasized during this period, and is for the most part light-hearted. Give other people a little extra time and attention, notice their efforts on your behalf, and strengthen your connections. You are more curious and alert than usual, and you could be quite busy with errands, paperwork, phone calls, and light socializing. Much energy is expended in understanding and adapting to your immediate environment. Siblings, neighbors, close relatives, friends, and co-workers may play a more important role than usual in your life during this cycle. You are more interested in exploring your own neighborhood than you are a different country. This is not a time of big adventure-seeking. Rather, it's a time of little adventures close to home. Neither is this a time when you are especially focused. In fact, you could have a finger in many pies right now. You are especially resourceful now, and you could find yourself enjoying (or seeking) attention for your intellectual know-how. The ability to express and communicate your ideas is extremely important to you at this time. You are eager to investigate new things, whether scientific or technical.

Errands, paperwork, and short trips are bound to keep you on your toes this month. A close partnership stabilizes--you can count on your special someone to keep life easygoing and secure. Finances are especially strong, particularly around the 12th and 22nd, when opportunities to increase your cash flow could arise, seemingly from out of the blue. A burst of energy and confidence is with you around the 13th. Apply it to a constructive pursuit and focus on one important endeavor rather than scattering your energy. Sometimes less is more!

This month, the first of three Jupiter-Uranus squares occurs, placing some tension between your first and fourth houses, from now through October. The urge to break free from limiting situations in your life is strong, but they could also clash with your needs for security and familiarity. Your major desire is to expand your personal horizons, but some obligations to family or insecurities arising from disruptions on the home front interfere at times with that desire. Try not to instigate change just for the sake of change, and avoid rash behavior. On the other hand, if you look for opportunities, you have more confidence and faith now to do something totally different, and inspiration may be found now. But do avoid blowing off responsibilities while you pursue your new vision.

This month, the Sun, Venus, and Mercury align with Chiron in your solar third house. You may enjoy key opportunity periods for learning and opening up lines of communication, and do wonders for your relationships with others, particularly if they are in need of some healing. The key now is confidence and not overstating yourself.

Your ruler, Pluto, makes a powerful connection to Mars on the 12-14, representing a strong opportunity period for you, particularly for energy levels, work and health matters, and personal finances. Other opportunity periods include the 18-20 and 25-26 when you enjoy special charm, the power of negotiation, and opportunities to enhance or attract a close partnership. Other good periods for furthering your goals are from the 8-9 and 31. Red flag periods--times when you are not received as well as you would like, or are prone to impulsive, hasty, or ill-timed behavior--occur on the 22, and 29-30.

Better periods for personal finances occur on the 1, 4-6, and 11. Speculation and new financial initiatives are best avoided on the 12 and 15-17. Speculation is likely a strong urge this month with Mars transiting your second house.

Opportunities to enhance or attract romance occur on the 1, 18-19, and 26. These periods represent power days for personal magnetism, charisma, and creativity. Small issues that could be annoying or disconcerting concerning romantic matters are more likely to occur on the 12 and 21-22. These would be less than ideal days to go on a first date, for example. For more serious partnerships, long-term relationships tend to thrive on the 4-6, 10-12 (especially strong), 18-19, 25-26, and 29-31. Tensions in close partnerships are more likely on the 14-15 and 22.

Better times to schedule job interviews or health appointments, and for success and happiness on the job, occur on the 1-4, 8-9, and 12-13. Red flag periods for these matters occur on the 6-7, 20-22, 26-27, and 29-30, when you should probably avoid scheduling health appointments or job interviews if feasible. Career and reputation matters run more smoothly on the 1-2, 5-8, and especially the 29-30; and they more easily run into snags on the 14-18.

Venus transits your solar third house until the 20th. You are mostly cheerful in your approach to others, and perhaps somewhat intellectual, during this transit. Essentially, you are quite companionable now. You enjoy talking about what interests you, and you find great value in the exchange of ideas. Sometimes this transit brings benefit through siblings, communications, or short trips. During this period, you are most attracted to wit, cheerfulness, and verbal rapport. You are especially good at mediating conflicts. Smoothing over differences using your diplomacy skills figures now.

From the 20th, Venus moves through your solar fourth house. During this cycle, you are especially fond of the life of the home and family. You are more receptive and gentle on a romantic level, and tend to be sentimental or nostalgic now. You may particularly value the aesthetics in and around your home during this period. If things are out of whack on the home front, you will do whatever you can to create a peaceful and stable atmosphere. Loyalty and sensitivity in your relationships are more important to you than typically. You might focus on ways to earn money in or from your home. This is a calming influence--a time when simple pleasures most appeal.

Mercury transits your solar third house from the 9-27. Mercury is right at home in the third house, and offers a natural curiosity, facility with words, and the ability to multi-task successfully. More time spent on the phone, writing emails, in the car making short frequent trips, chatting, running errands, communicating with neighbors and siblings, visiting friends and relatives, and doing paperwork is likely now. There can also be a tendency to fuss over insignificant matters now, however. Also, "information overload" is also a possibility. This may be a busy time with neighbors, classmates, siblings, and community affairs. Your interests are especially varied now, and perhaps scattered. It's an ideal time to pick up information from your environment and the people in it, as your tendency is toward a certain level of intellectual detachment just now. Your mind is often distracted, particularly when circumstances call for you to stick to routine, so this is not the best transit for focusing on one task or project. Your mind is especially inquisitive during this cycle, when learning, short trips, and other forms of communication and making connections, appeal strongly. Some are fidgety or nervous during this cycle, perhaps due to increased errand-running, phone calls, and the like. Others enjoy the challenge of tackling a variety of subjects. As well, talking, writing, and studying can be good ways to handle stress.

All month, Mars energizes your solar second house. You have more energy at your disposal to make money, but also to defend your values. This can be a very resourceful time, when you make the most of what you have. You have much energy for new money-making projects, or for stepping up existing ones. You may be over-identifying with what you have and own, and you could be trying to prove yourself (your worth) to others using money and possessions as the means to do so. If conflicts occur during this transit, they are likely to be over issues of ownership. This is a time when impulse buying is at a peak. You probably should avoid using credit right now, simply because your spending habits may be excessive and impulsive.

Overall, the best period of the month for you is the 10-20, when matters tend to run smoothly and your ideas are especially well-received. Use the 1-4 to smooth over differences with others.

Highlights:

January 1-2 Jupiter sextiles Chiron, the Sun sextiles Uranus, and Mars sextiles Neptune. This is a creative period for all--one in which we can find new insights into old problems. Willingness to embrace change is the key to success now. With your co-ruler involved, there may be some interesting synchronicities in your life now. This is also a strong period for financial as well as career and reputation matters.

January 3 Full Moon in Cancer in your solar eighth house. Some sort of fulfillment, culmination, or revelation regarding your desires or new initiatives at the last New Moon on December 20th occurs now. This Full Moon is all about give and take. What makes you feel comfortable and secure needs to be balanced with attention to other people's needs and comfort levels. It's a good time to settle some of your debts, financial or otherwise. You may be in a position wherein you are forced to make a financial settlement or large outlay of cash; or, you may find that you are leaned upon for support, financial or otherwise.

January 6-7 Monthly career and reputation peak. Your credibility is important at this time of the lunar month, and efforts at self-promotion might be made now. This is the time when you're noticed for what you've done or haven't done. Do your best to be in top form, make career adjustments if needed, and don't be afraid to show others exactly what you're made of. You're at your best when you are showing the world your practical, competent, and responsible side.

January 6-8 The Sun and Mercury align and Mars trines Saturn. These planetary influences suggest rational, logical, and productive energy. We are actively communicating, and our work takes on definite shape. This is a good time to temper our energy and to exercise better judgment. Traditional methods work, and thoroughness brings rewards. For you, solidifying a work project, or increased responsibilities that give you a healthy sense of purpose on the job, may be in store now. You may be feeling especially strong financially and in your career. This is a good time for all communication matters, and a busy time for worldly affairs. You may be called upon to speak or write in an official manner.

January 10-12 Venus joins with Chiron and sextiles Jupiter. This is a healing and friendly energy--an excellent time to socialize, promote cooperation, spend time with romantic partners, and to initiate a new relationship or friendship. It's also very strong for financial matters. For you, this is a strong opportunity period for negotiations as well as for close partnerships. It's also an especially auspicious time for personal finances.

January 13-14 Mars joins with Pluto and Venus semi-squares both planets; Mercury semi-squares Uranus. Keywords for this period include intense, passionate, rebellious, and obsessive! Tense interplays between lovers are quite likely now, and the inclination to rebel against routine or expectations is strong. Harness the energy of Mars-Pluto by pouring your energy into a pet project. Sexual relations now can be very intense. Competitive energy is powerful. For you, this is a high-energy period in which you may be inclined towards impulsive actions. It's a good time to throw yourself into your work. With your money sector stimulated, you could come up with a new money-making idea now.

January 14-15 Your Personal New Moon. A new personal cycle begins for you, and you feel fresh and re-energized. It's all about you now, so it's time to put your best foot forward. A blast of personal energy comes your way, and showing your leadership skills works for you now. You are at your most convincing, as others are accepting you at face value. Some people find that the Moon in their sign brings with it a restless, discontented, and emotional state, and that there is more on their plate than they expected or wanted. If this is the case for you, remember that these feelings are there because you need to make a change, however big or small. Use it to stimulate activity and positive change.

January 16-17 Monthly money and income peak. You're looking at the world in terms of value and worth now, and what you have (or don't have) is on your mind. Money issues pop up now—the discovery of a way to increase your income, an unexpected gift or reward, or a brief and tiny financial crisis that motivates you to find new ways to make money are possible.

January 18 New Moon in late Capricorn in your solar third house affects you until the next New Moon. A time to focus on long-term goals and projects and to formulate career and business plans. The third house rules our communication skills, learning, methods, daily interactions and contact, and general "busy-ness". This is a favorable time for learning something new, feeling at ease in social situations, taking care of the details of daily life, and developing a mental rapport with others. It is a time when you will be more aware of your environment, and when you experience increased alertness. It's a good time to take tests, fill out forms, start a new course, write letters, make phone calls, and take care of daily tasks with energy.

January 18-20 Venus joins with Neptune and Mercury conjoins Chiron. This can be a very romantic time, although the tendency can be towards seeing what we want to see rather than what is, so romantic mirages are possible now. Kind, healing words and communications are also featured now. A good time to discover new or alternative health procedures and regimes. Soft, pleasant energy dominates. For you, this is a romantic time for a close partnership. Family connections are also idyllic now. An important conversation or communication from a friend or intimate partner can come now.

January 22-23 Romance and pleasure are highlights right now with the Moon in your solar fifth. The Moon is in your element, and so are you! The flowing, expressive, and spontaneous energy surrounding you attracts like-minded (and hearted) people. Be sure to take time to enjoy yourself, preferably around others! Keywords: romance, creativity, spontaneity, pleasure, self-expression.

January 25-26 Venus sextiles Pluto and Mercury aligns with Neptune. An excellent period for romantic and artistic expression. However, don't expect communications to be right-brain, logical, or clear! It's best to delay important decisions. A good period for romance and dreamy conversations. For you, this is a period of attraction--you tend to receive good things now, whether they come to you through invitations, compliments, or material goods. A surprising conversation with a family member or about domestic matters could be part of the picture. This is an excellent period for strengthening or attracting a close partnership.

January 27-28 Your partnerships are highlighted right now, and it's time to compromise. Insecurities in your partnerships are brought to light now, and the best way to handle this is to understand that you need others instead of competing for the floor. Some people find this time of the lunar month an energy sapper, as they feel ignored or unnoticed. Trying to go it alone won't work just now. The spotlight is on other people for the time being, and it's best to let them shine. Concentrate on truly listening to those close to you, and on playing a supportive role. Perhaps not a time to be make a presentation or to come on strong to the world. You are feeling reflective rather than expressive.

January 27-28 Mercury and Mars form challenging angles to Saturn. This can be a tense period in which hitting brick walls is likely. Delay important discussions and avoid beginning new projects, which could be riddled with frustrations and complications down the road.

January 30-31 The Sun joins Chiron and Mercury sextiles Pluto. An excellent period for coming up with innovative new techniques, socializing, and gaining perspective on our long-term goals. It's easy to resolve problems, particularly old, nagging ones, and to cooperate with others in a balanced manner. This is an especially strong period for you for mental tasks and communications. Your ideas are received especially well.
