What’s the big idea?

Project love to attract it

Go with the different choice

Innovation and ideas dominate the week as does a focus on love Scorpio. You’ve some practical magic to wield when it comes to work, wellbeing and just your everyday routine. Sometimes we forget that it’s making changes that effect our daily lives that can have the most powerful results. Imagine, innovate then initiate is your mantra now as a new Moon in your 6th opens doors to a new way of working, job or wellbeing. Solutions that would have never occurred to you up until now could alter your work or just your daily landscape. It’s all down to this new Moon falling conjunct Uranus planet of the unique and dare I say it – genius. Not only that, the Sun also meets Uranus in here two days later showing you where all this can be applied. But – as the old infomercials told us – there’s more. Chiron’s entry into here has you applying some of that radical magic to unseen wounds via alternative thinking, therapies or even by doing something creative.

Venus in her ruling 7th opposes Jupiter in your 1st now making this one of the best weeks for attracting love or just for partnership matters in general. Both of these planets want to deliver good things. You’ve two powerful retrogrades beginning in your 3rd of ideas, commerce and communication this week. Saturn heads backwards from the 18th and your ruler Pluto in here also retrogrades from the 22nd. You of all signs know that Pluto becomes more powerful and his transformational influence increases when retrograde. Saturn gets us working to establish something but this can often feel like ‘hard’ going or that the return we are getting simply is not equivalent to the effort we put in. Saturn retrograde can lift this feeling. Both these cycles last for several months and during this time you may see something that you have invested in come to fruition, or else something you thought over and done with, revive. This could just come about by you coming up with a radical and heart-starting idea. Imagine and innovate with love.

monthly horoscope

State your intentions

Follow your hunches

Draw your desires to you

Transformational transactions power you on into spring this April, Scorpio. You’ll be getting to grips with the power of words and ideas to take you further. And to use these to change your direction if need be.

You begin the month with Mercury, the planet who rules both commerce and communication, retrograde in Mercury’s ruling house (6th). This is your sector of work and wellness, your routine and daily responsibilities. Yes, you still have these even if you have a ‘glamourous’ job.  Think about this. Even superstars have to turn up for that gig or on-set on time if they want to keep on being superstars – or not earn a reputation for all the wrong reasons. You also have an incredibly powerful stellium of planets in Mercury’s other ruling house in your chart – your 3rd. These include Saturn and both your rulers ancient and modern –Mars and Pluto.

First let’s look at the impact of this Mercury Retro which ends on April 15. When Mercury retrogrades in his ruling sign or house in your chart, his ability to make mayhem is increased. Sensible phoenixes would have been paying extra attention to the Retrograde Rules as a result. Mercury Retrogrades favour all activities that involve ‘re’ words and in your 6th anything to do with your work. So if you are looking to change jobs  – update that resume but hold off from actually applying for something new if you can until after Mercury heads direct. It’s a time of revision whether this is for studying or editing any documents or even your routine especially if this impacts on your health or wellbeing. It can also be a time where facts that have been hidden come to light. Especially at the start of the month when the Sun and Mercury meet in your 6th and impact on Mars in your 3rd and the Moon in your 12th. Got a ‘feeling’ about something or someone? Follow that hunch as by the time Mercury and Mars square on the 4th, chances are it’s going to be confirmed.

Winning with words, the power of words and above all, standing by your word could see you bringing something to a successful conclusion during the first week of the month. Above all, do not promise more than you can deliver (keeping your word) and follow through with what you say (walking your talk). This is going to be especially important when ancient ruler Mars meets Saturn in your 3rd and will move to meet Pluto in here on the 26th when you can experience the transformative power of words. You will not shy away from saying what needs to be said either but what matters most of all is following through. Actions ultimately speak louder than words but usually follow a stated intention. Your game plan this April is therefore stating what you intend to do – then doing it.

That’s not to say this necessarily means a confrontation. You’ve the gift of wooing words as well as winning ones thanks to Venus in her ruling house (7th) adding a little romance, a touch of love and a sparkle of diplomacy where needed. Attraction is in the air thanks to Venus making some alluring and enchanting angles to all those 3rd house planets as well as Neptune in your 5th of romance. Plus Venus will move to oppose Jupiter in your 1st on the 17th. You have the ability to draw your desires to you so be clear who or what it is you want to attract. When you do, you’ll have the words to say those magic spells that could just conjure you lust or devotion – or maybe a bit of both! Know what you want whether this is on a personal or professional level.  And be careful what you wish for – you may get it!

New beginnings, action and awakening are brought in by the new Moon in your 6th on the 16th and this falls conjunct Uranus in here. It occurs the day before that Venus/Jupiter opposition I mentioned before and Venus will also trine your ruler Pluto on the same day. Because Venus is involved this could involve money and partnerships. Something could be resurrected and come to life again quite literally now. A past relationship or a path you thought over and done with returns with new meaning. Think new beginnings with past flavour.

The Sun enters your 7th on the 20th while Venus moves off into your 8th. The love talk if you’ve recently started seeing someone starts to sizzle.  Love intensifies and if you meet someone new now, expect the connection to feel like a magnetic force pulling you in deeper. But for most phoenixes out there this transit is going to be all about how you love and embrace your power.  Venus in here has nothing to do with getting your own way but more about understanding the power of feminine strength no matter what gender you identify with. Work that for results. As Venus rules money and this is the house of your salary or shared money/resources, this places you at the point of power when it comes to settlements and negotiations.

The month ends with a full Moon in your 1st bringing something intensely personal for you to a climax or fruition.  Use that power and individual magic you have to look at areas of life that need adjustment or change and commit to these. You are more aware of your own emotional needs at this time but also you want to take into consideration those of others.  This can be one of the most emotionally open yet connecting full Moons of the year for you. You + others – it’s your magical blend that transforms this April.

In a nutshell: What you say, write or communicate has the ability to change things for the better – or worse. Time to say what you mean and mean what you say. You’ll get fabulous results if you do.

Scorpio 2018 

You begin 2018 on an optimistic note with Jupiter in your 1st. This is a year to expand your horizons, to be confident and to dare to do something new! You will always have your deep Scorpio side, but this year sees you more outgoing, open and embracing whatever comes your way. Of course, it has to have depth, meaning and purpose for you. Above all, Jupiter in here is telling you not to be your old self. So, where do you feel the need for change? In how you look? How others see you? At the very least, project a confident, optimistic outlook and you’ll find Jupiter working for you to bring new opportunities your way. When they arrive – be ready to say ‘Yes!’ to them. And just be aware than sometimes that perfect opportunity doesn’t look quite how we thought it would. That’s why it just pays to be open-minded. Jupiter in our 1st often sees us being sent what we need – not what we think we want. 

You’re beginning the year on a high thanks to not just Jupiter but ancient ruler Mars in your 1st who makes a fabulous angle to new ruler Pluto in your 3rd. With Uranus heading direct again in your work zone you’ve the energy to tackle almost any task – especially when it comes to work changes and agendas. Jupiter will also make a highly beneficial angle to Pluto during the second week and January which could see you not only in a position to successfully push forward with ideas, but a beneficial transformation occur on the work front or around a particular project or plan.  

The biggest shifts for you in 2018 are around love and relationships, Scorpio. Neptune with his long term stay in your romantic 5th is linking you to the prospect of a more spiritual connection. Just ensure you see your partner for exactly who they are however no matter the depth of the connection that you feel. If you are placing them on a pedestal, not only could you be setting them up to fall off of it, but it actually says more about you than it does about them. When we elevate a partner what it is really saying is that deep down we think they are ‘better’ than us and that we don’t deserve them. So, if you find yourself doing this, look within rather than at them and work on your relationship with your self-worth. You’ll then be surprised at how your relationship with a real human being improves out of sight! 

In fact, a radical new approach to relationships could be on the horizon for you in 2018, Scorpio. Uranus, planet of surprises and thrills, exits your work sector on May 15 to arrive in your partnership zone. After the work you’ve been doing on opening up to yourself and the courage to be yourself, it’s now time to open up in new ways to others. There may be surprising twists and turns ahead with partners or potential partners – or even enemies as they are ruled by this house in your chart. But the way you are in close relationships or what you need for a partner, is likely to undergo a radical overhaul now. Get ready for the love revolution, baby! It’s a time where you get to define who or what it is that makes your heart beat faster. Unusual, off-beat and highly individual partners or potential partners may appear now. They may even keep you guessing. The thing about Uranus is that all bets are off. Just prepare to be surprised.  

Saturn and ruler Pluto in your 3rd this year make for serious thoughts, ideas and a more serious attitude towards them. You can be taken more seriously at this time especially by those in business or who you present those ideas to. You’re liable to think before you speak, waiting to think through the likely outcomes before saying anything. It may take you longer to bring projects to completion now but the results will be worth taking your time over.  

In October, Venus retrogrades in your 1st bringing personal desires, love affairs and even your creativity to a standstill. This will not be a good time to begin anything from a creative venture to starting a new love affair. Venus retrogrades rarely but when she does it is our opportunity to look at what we want from our relationships and review them. During her retrograde cycle, Venus will move back into your mysterious 12th in November before heading direct again and arriving back in your 1st at the start of December. Watch what comes to light during this time as something is about to be revealed – possibly concerning a partner, lover or even a creative project. The past can feature but in a Venus retrograde, be very wary of getting re-involved with someone from your past. If someone reappears and wants a second chance, my advice to you is to wait until Venus is well out of her retrograde shadow which will happen after the third week of December, before giving your answer. 

During this Venus retro, Jupiter is going to move out of your 1st and on into your 2nd on November 8.  This is of course your house of money, assets, property, talents, self-worth and people who are assets to you. Venus rules this house and again, while Jupiter in here should see your bank account increase, your personal stock soar and you handling larger amounts of moolah during this transit, don’t rush into new financial dealings while Venus remains retro. There’s no hurry as Jupiter is set to be your cosmic banker for the next 12 months.  You’re about to step out of a cycle where the focus has been entirely on you to one where you experience all the freedom and pleasure than comes from experiencing the good things of life. You’ll learn a lot about yourself during 2018. 2019 will give you all the opportunity in the world to apply it. 

In a nutshell: 2018 is all about expansion. You’re bolder, brighter, more beautiful! And your relationships reflect this dynamic new you as a new style of relating follows.
