Attract and receive

Romance has a touch of déjà vu

Be in the moment

Be prepared for surprises as the Sun enters your 11th this week, Scorpio. This is your house not only of friends, groups, teams, organisations, networks and tribes but also your house of goals. Life will get a little bit more unpredictable in a way that is designed to shake you free of any dull routines you may have created. Those surprises however – they could play a role here as this is your house of reception as opposed to your 5th which is your house of attraction (more on this in a moment). Be open to what is sent your way or arrives now. This could be that unexpected invitation, an opportunity or a fascinating new connection. It’s time to embrace spontaneity and to be present in the moment. Don’t get too attached to plans or cling to routines. This week could see you soar like a phoenix away from anything that has been holding you back.

This is Uranus’s ruling house in your chart and the Sun angles to it in your 7th. This is the first time this energy has been available to you in this lifetime. Expect a love revolution as you look for more freedom in your close relationships. The opportunity to form a new one for some could be but the flap of those golden wings away as a full Moon shines from your 5th of romance and attraction. So, you are in the flow of attract and receive this week. Past connections, past loves and past lives could add that touch of feeling you have known someone before. Whatever you receive this week – be it news, an opportunity, an invitation or a connection, is what you need now. Suspend judgement and go where it wants to take you.


monthly horoscope

Love is an evolution
Career opportunities spring from the past
Wait for answers

Strange and charmed and decidedly different attractions are one possible effect of Uranus, planet of all things revolutionary, in your 7th of partnerships and close personal connections, Scorpio. People who you might not have even given a second look now radiate an exotic and compelling fascination. The more different they are, the more likely you are to find them attractive.

You’re craving more freedom or a different approach when it comes to love now. Your needs may be changing, and if so, you’ll draw to you the kind of person who will evolve this further. One connection you make during the next seven years could totally redefine your ideas around what love is forever.

This month, however, Uranus joins the retrograde rave in the sky and heads backwards in here from the 7th. This brings the total number of retrograde planets to an incredible six – including both your rulers Mars and Pluto. You also have Venus, planet of love and ruler of your 7th house, enter your 12th on the same day as Uranus heads backwards. Although Venus is not retrograde until later this year, this is your house of the past, so this is not the best time to begin a new love affair – especially with Mars retrograde which rules passion! Focus instead on the love you have – be it friends, family or even close working relationships. It’s about spiritual, big picture love rather than the one-to-one kind.

Mercury is also retrograde at present in your sector of career, rewards and reputation. With all this ‘looking backwards’ theme happening across the sky, it could be that a past employer, company you have had dealings with or business opportunity, resurfaces for you, especially given that Mercury falls conjunct the partial solar eclipse in here at the time of the new Moon on the 11th. You could go back to work for a company you worked for in the past, get re-hired again, or a path, project or plan gets revived with new significance for you. Be prepared to act and also to have a realistic plan when it comes to career goal – your personal ‘business plan’ if you like. Just remember that eclipses hide things. Something is literally ‘covered up’. With a total eclipse, we are completely in the dark as to what this is. With a partial one, we may think we see it, but we don’t. By all means, accept the offer, sign the contract, shake on the deal. Don’t hesitate and act with assurance and authority. And then wait. More will emerge.

On the 13th, ancient ruler Mars retrogrades into your 3rd joining modern ruler Pluto and Saturn in here. You may be impatient for answers which you may not get as quickly as you would like. You’ll have little or no patience for those who waffle or beat around the bush. You want to cut to the chase. However strong the urge may be to interrupt or say exactly what’s on your mind, Mars wants you to stop and listen and above all, think before speaking. Mercury which rules this house in your chart, heads direct from the 18th, easing communications and facilitating career moves.

Ensure you know what it is you want to achieve as the Sun enters your house of friends, contacts, networks and goals. The 25th sees a Grand Earth Trine of achievement arc between the Sun in here, Saturn in your 3rd and Uranus in your 7th. This may involve you, and at least one other person or could even be a team or a collaborative effort in which you had a major role to play. There’s now a touch of magic in the air and a distinct crackle that heralds the return of positivity, optimism and passion! The energy moves from universal love to a more romantic, personal kind. Jupiter in your 1st until November makes an alluring angle to Neptune in your 5th. While the full Moon of the 26th lights up possibilities around love now the retrograde weather is dispersing.

It’s time to start looking to the future and not back at the past. Look forward now to a return of creativity, confidence and desire at the end of the month as Mars finally heads forward again in your 3rd from the 27th. You’ve the energy and the passion you need to go after what (or who) you want now. So channel it into anything from that work project to that flirtation! You’ll also have the right words to say what needs to be said and to follow through with action and to push forward with your ideas. News you may have been waiting on could now arrive. Pick a goal now and infuse it with your creative vision, your surging self-confidence and your desire to make it real. The results could simply astound not just you, but others too.

In a nutshell: Welcome back passion, energy and self-confidence, Scorpio. Love takes on a decidedly different look while success could spring from something you’ve done in the past.

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.
