Scorpio, The Scorpion
October 23 to November 22
Keywords: Intense, ambitious, perceptive, determined, focused, secretive, jealous
As a Scorpio you are intensely determined, and are rarely deterred from achieving your goals (though this can be seen at times as stubbornness). Shrewd and intuitive, you have a mysterious aura that can be interpreted as secretive (which you indeed are at times).
Scorpios are choosy about their friends, and often have many acquaintances but few close friends; you prefer spending time with these close friends to large social events. When it comes to love, romance is essential, but you must be careful not to become too possessive or jealous. Your opposite sign, Taurus, would make a good match, as would other the water signs (Cancer and Pisces). Family relationships can be either closely bonded or detached, and often you have relationships with both types with differing family members. With children, be careful not to be too giving and to set boundaries.
When it comes to careers, Scorpios strive for influence, and do well in leadership positions; you value a fast-paced environment, but must be careful not to push yourself too hard. You have the potential for great earning power, but do have the tendency to splurge, so be sure to budget and think each purchase through.
You are kind-hearted and do all you can for those close to you.
For the year ahead:
Affirmation: Knowledge enhances my personal and global perspective.
- Jupiter has been in Taurus (your seventh house of relationships) since early June; it will remain in that sign until June of 2012. This transit occurs only once every twelve years, and is one of love and commitment. Many personal relationships may be solidified or intensified during this time.
- Saturn continues to advance in Libra (your twelfth house), which means that the rest of 2011 should be spent in self-reflection so that changes can be made in 2012, when Saturn moves into your sign.
- Uranus ended its seven-year tour of Pisces in early 2011 before moving into Aries. This means that for the next eight years or so you can expect changes in your work life as Uranus transits your sixth house. These changes and shifts can be both positive and negative; be sure you consider all signs of each situation before making a decision.
- Pluto continues in Capricorn, your third house, where it brings about a desire to discover your inner self, whether through study or creative pursuit. Your third house is also associated with family and neighbors, so you may become more involved with these individuals as well.
