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: People value my knowledge and experience.
- Jupiter has been in Gemini (your eighth house of reincarnation) since early June; it will remain in that sign until June of 2013, when it moves into Cancer, your ninth house of philosophy and learning. Jupiter in your ninth house is a good time to take classes, travel, and expand your horizons.
- Saturn advances in your sign, until December of 2014. This could be a time of reflection, and possibly regret. You may feel the urge to begin something new, or return to a project that was once left unfinished.
- Uranus continues its long tour of Aries, your sixth house of career. This means that for the next eight years or so you can expect changes in your work life; these changes and shifts can be both positive and negative, so 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.
