The Moon leaves Aquarius and enters Pisces at 3:35 AM EST today. With the
Moon in dreamy Pisces for the remainder of the day, we are more spiritually
aware and sensitive. Boundaries dissolve, and we are especially idealistic. This
is especially so this morning when the Moon aligns with Piscean ruler, Neptune.
We can also be evasive and shy away from conflict, particularly direct
confrontation, under this influence. Decisions or commitments may not be easy
under this influence, but tapping into our intuition is.
Personal finances are a strong focus of the month, dear Scorpio. Major opportunities to increase your income now and down the road surface. It's time to make important changes to the way you manage money, and the attitude that drives the way you attract money and possessions into your life. Focus on detoxifying and cleansing from the 7th, when Mars enters your soul sector: out with the old, in with the new. There can be some indecision during this cycle, but it's necessary now as it's a time for reviewing plans. Your personal influence runs high, and although life is not necessarily exciting this month, chances to improve your feelings of security are strong. A strong interest in broadening your mental experiences in general, and finding expression of your personality through them, perhaps through higher education or exploring different philosophies of life, is with you in December, and especially around the 10-12. The Full Moon on the 17th can bring a revelation about an intimate relationship or a financial matter comes to light. Around the same time, Uranus' turnaround helps to increase your confidence when it comes to bringing innovative ideas to your work or to your health and wellness programs. Expect the unexpected when it comes to daily routines and schedules. Venus is retrograde from the 21st and through to the end of January. A partner could be hard to read, challenged, distant, or aloof. He or she could be turning to the past rather than looking ahead to the future, or sitting on a fence when it comes to moving forward. Past actions come back to visit you, and for some of you, past lovers reappear in person or in your thoughts to an unusual degree. It may be time to re-assess a relationship, and give anyone involved, including yourself, some space. Because this Venus retrograde occurs in your communications sector, there can be a lot of conversation or much thought about a past love matter or relationship.
is no doubt that Saturn's presence in your sign all year puts some pressure on
you, dear Scorpio. 2013 may be demanding at times. Nevertheless, it's also bound
to be very rewarding. In many ways, you are learning to count on yourself, and
your relationship with yourself of course affects all life "departments" in
profound ways. The responsibilities that you have let slide in the past now are
coming up for close attention, and while it can sometimes feel like an
onslaught, you are more than equipped to meet the challenges. Keep in mind that
those things that you've managed well in the past are now being rewarded. Saturn
is karmic in nature - you are experiencing what you are due at this point in
time. Saturn and your ruler are in mutual reception throughout Saturn's transit
of your sign, and this can be wonderfully supportive. You may very well enjoy
the process as you can feel that you're getting your life back on track. The
process of getting closer to your true self will involve some restructuring of
your attitudes and thinking processes. The ways you communicate with others are
being overhauled, refined, and redefined. You actually have much power to
persuade, lead, and defend. While in a general sense your best source of support
this year is yourself, Jupiter is helping you out until June by way of some
financial and/or emotional support from others, and especially from a partner or
close friend. Intimacy is improved. Combining your
own resources, talents, and/or money with a partner can improve your own
financial outlook. The second half of the year is especially growth-oriented in
more explicit, tangible ways. If you get the chance to travel, you should take
it, as benefits can come through long-distance experiences and people.
Creatively speaking, while your general demeanor may be on the serious side, you
are discovering highly unique and creative ways of expressing yourself. You are
looking for more from love - it's increasingly about intimacy as well as
mystical or romantic elements. You are attracting unusual, sometimes elusive or
mysterious, people into your experience. Romantic and creative opportunities
soar in February and March. Money matters are mostly strong in 2013. Avoid
carelessness or neglect when it comes to daily routines and health. There may be
a tendency to ignore your body's needs for adequate rest, exercise, or nutrition
this year, and you should be especially mindful of these things in August.
Until mid-year, Jupiter's transit through your intimacy
sector can bring more joy and possibly more opportunities in your intimate life.
You are more relaxed, open, and natural when it comes to expressing yourself
with a partner. This is generally a time for seeing, appreciating, and enjoying
the benefits of sharing, on material and emotional levels. Take advantage of it,
if possible! Circumstances seem to collaborate to open up possibilities for
expressing yourself more openly and richly. With Saturn in your sign, however,
it can be a little more difficult to meet new people, so that this might only
apply to those who are already under your wing.
Saturn in your sign this year (and next) can certainly
seem to dampen your enthusiasm at times. You can be a little more serious and
cautious in your approach to the world in general. Be sure to avoid coming
across negatively. Watch your speech and manner closely for any sort of vibe
that may be pushing others away. It's true that you may not be as trusting of
new things, and new people, but it may be wise to avoid pushing people away
before they have any chance to prove themselves.
Neptune is in your romance and recreation sector again
this year, and this influence will be with you for many years to come. Love
affairs are likely to be unusual, mysterious, and at times confusing. Because
Neptune is forming some very positive aspects in 2013, one of which is with
Saturn in your own sign, you are likely to experience the more pleasing or
flattering side of Neptune in your romance sector this year. While 2013 is a lot
about meeting your responsibilities and other serious matters, you are meeting
your romantic life with more imagination and whimsy. You're looking for a
little more color in your relationships - a dash of fantasy, poetry, and
romance. You're likely to meet Neptune or Pisces "types" in your casual
relationships more frequently - artists and dreamers, for example. A lover may
be attracted to your responsible, competent side this year. In fact, you might
maintain a relationship in which you play the role of the serious or mature
person in the pair. Do be careful not to over-idealize a relationship during
this time. Relationships with perfectly good potential can sometimes end if we
make them out to be more than they actually are. There may be times during this
long-term transit of Neptune when you are attracted to the fantasy of a person
or of a relationship, and possibly to those you can't or shouldn't have. In
2013, however, you are more grounded than usual, and you have a real chance at
combining practicality with imagination.
Venus rules your partnership sector, and when the partnership ruler travels
through your own sign, there can be stronger opportunities for getting what and
who you want. This year, this occurs from September 11-October 7.
With the North Node of the Moon travelling through your sign the whole year,
your challenge is to learn how to rely on yourself, which ultimately will bring
you joy and opportunity. This does not mean excluding a partner from your life.
It simply means that in order to experience balanced relationships, you need to
work on building internal peace, rather than focusing on achieving peace and
balance in relationships.
