The Moon continues its transit of bold, adventurous, and philosophical
Sagittarius until 6:16 PM EDT, when it enters resourceful, respectable
Sun trines Pluto today, stimulating our ambition and reinforcing our
resolve. This is a time for honing in on what truly matters, and for
eliminating those things that no longer serve good purpose.
Self-improvement efforts are natural now, as we are more able to get in
touch with what motivates us and to identify what kind of changes are
necessary in order to reach our goals. The focus now is on eliminating negative or superficial elements
in our lives.
Good energy is with you for networking, planning, and connecting this month, dear Scorpio. In the first week of the month, if career matters are competing with your daily affairs, errands, paperwork, and communications, it's a good idea to make some adjustments
in order to balance things out, particularly as career and reputation matters can
begin to soar towards the end of September, and you'll want to take advantage of the opportunities that arise. The Full Moon on the 8th brings a nice change in a creative or romantic pursuit. It's a great time for a sudden epiphany or idea that can have long-term benefits.
If you've been idealizing a relationship or person, there could be a let-down of
sorts in the days following the Full Moon. However, by the 14th, you're likely
to feel stronger simply because you feel that you're more "in the know", and
relationships that are more strongly grounded in reality thrive as a result of
your confidence in them. The first two weeks of September are high energy, with you in charge and in the lead.
The pace can be wild at times. As the month moves forward, it becomes wiser to conserve your energy. From the 22nd, you are feeling strong, but don't jump into action
just yet - take the leap in your imagination first and see how it feels before
taking a big step. This is a time when new insights come in happy, empowering flashes. Practical and business matters thrive. There can be financial improvements as
well as recognition for your talents and your less orthodox or traditional
ideas. You should be thinking in terms of progress, innovation, and invention.
There can be new technology or methods that improve your daily life, health, or
work. Things are changing for the better. The New Moon on the 24th brings a need
for more time to yourself, some introspection, and attention to your spiritual
needs. Love matters are a little more complicated than they have been, and you
may need more time to process recent events and feelings.
The year ahead is a period for learning and manifesting, dear Scorpio,
although there will be distinct introspective phases as well. The first half of
the year is excellent for learning about the world around you and for updating
your skills. Jupiter in favorable aspect to your sign can help mitigate some of
the challenges of Saturn's transit through Scorpio, which is soon coming to an
end. Study and learn as much as you can while your mind is a sponge, while
educational opportunities are abundant, and while good teachers or mentors tend
to be more available to you. This way, you'll be able to take fuller advantage
of the career peak coming that begins as early as mid-year. There's money here,
in addition to a stronger feeling that you're truly living life, rather than
just going through the motions. May is strong for finances, especially connected
to communications projects, publishing, and promotion. You may be finalizing a
long-term project. Recent efforts can pay off nicely. The second half of the
year is even stronger for finances, although you'll have to watch your spending,
especially in October. This can be a time when you're projecting an image that
shows others that you truly value yourself, and this can attract respect and
possibly monetary rewards as well. This is a time for really putting yourself
out there. People are noticing you, responding to you, respecting you, and
valuing you. From mid-summer forward, you can gain recognition for your
natural talents. Honors or awards might come your way. There can be a promotion
for some. This is a time for starting a new business or expanding a current one.
This can also be a strong time for connecting or re-connecting with a parent.
Saturn in your sign all year (with the exception of the last week of 2014) is
not a new energy for you, but those born in the second half of Scorpio will be
feeling its energy more acutely. This is a strong period for diet, sports, and
fitness, although the health may seem a little fragile at times, which can be
most apparent in the first half of the year when it's important to listen to
your body's signals for extra "down" time. The best way to manage Saturn's
influence is to focus on working towards success in the long term, rather than
paying too much attention to smaller frustrations and grievances. Love these
days requires more than the regular, humdrum, or ordinary in order for your
heart to engage. You're looking for bells and whistles, and bored or annoyed by
the superficial or crass. In January, there may be some backtracking, slow-down,
or complications in your love life.
Especially from September forward, there can be strong opportunities, often
sudden or unexpected ones, associated with your work or routines. It's a period
of innovation and advancement. Your job may improve your home life in some way
now, or positively impacts your family. Family is more supportive of your goals.
Your earning power improves. Health is also an area of focus, and alternative
methods of healing or improving can present themselves. 2014 is a year for
gaining more respect and acknowledgement. It's a time when believing in yourself, your competency, and your ability
to take the lead opens up opportunities to you.
The first half of the
year brings some matters from the past to your attention, and you may be a
little withdrawn as you tend to them.
Mars is in your
privacy sector for an extended period - the first seven months of the year, part
of which (from March 1-May 19) Mars is retrograde. This points to a whole lot of
hesitancy, dealing with complicated and unusual desires, and frequent need for
privacy, rest, and some level of solitude. You could be dealing with keeping
secrets, making sacrifices, and some of you will be feeling a little stuck in
the past. Slowly but surely, these matters straighten out from May 19-July 25.
July 25th brings Mars
into your sign and symbolically out of "hiding". Confidence returns with great
Neptune in your
romance and pleasure sector is a long-term influence that has been with you for
a couple years and is active throughout 2014 and beyond. This brings some level
of mystery, intrigue, spirituality or confusion to your love life. You may
attract Neptunian romantic partners or situations into your life during this
long-term trend--artistic, colorful, or elusive lovers, and somewhat unusual and
colorful circumstances. You are highly romantic, but also somewhat prone to
self-deception--seeing what you want to see in a lover rather than what really
is. Being "in love with love" is quite possible now, although some of you could
be quite dissatisfied with romantic love as you've experienced it. Love can be
complicated or downright elusive! You may find yourself falling in love with
someone unattainable or attached, for example; or you might attach yourself to
someone who you deem needs "saving". Use some caution in this respect. Drama in
romance can be lovely, but too much of it will only leave you yearning and
perhaps even heartbroken. Dreamy romance is the most positive potential of this
