Scorpio 2018

"The year ahead is in many ways a banner year for you, dear Scorpio. You are finding more personal joy and opportunity, and you’re projecting yourself with increased confidence, humor, and authority. Somehow, you’re managing to express yourself both warmly and authoritatively. It’s a year for feeling more respected.

At times, you may be guarding what you communicate a little too closely to the point of self-censorship, but in moderation, this may very well work well for you now with two heavyweights, Saturn and Pluto, in your communications sector. You’ll also want to watch for a tendency to come across scathingly or to think negatively or cynically at times when these planets are clashing with others in your chart.

You’re challenged to do some critical streamlining and simplifying in your daily life. You may be working harder or smarter now, and have less time for idling, personal interests, and the like. You tend to have less time for acquaintances in 2018 and perhaps even for family at times. Small talk no longer seems to satisfy you, and you could feel quite a bit of pressure to make better and more efficient use of your time. You are also communicating with more authority, or honing your knowledge in a particular trade or area of knowledge/expertise this year.

Jupiter continues to move through your sign until November, and this is about positive new beginnings, turning over a new leaf, and expressing yourself without apology. Be proud of who you are. You’re in an exceptional position to update your image and to build personal confidence levels. You may be bringing more of your personality to your work or projects, and this is particularly rewarding and successful! Especially if you coach, teach, guide, or write, you’re in a great position to improve and advance in 2018.

This is also a good time for financial matters, and this theme will only increase later this year and through most of 2019. Besides putting yourself “out there” and expressing yourself with confidence, one of the best things you can do for yourself in 2018 is to fine-tune your routines, projects, and studies. You are in need of more structure when it comes to these things, and while it involves effort and persistence, you’ll thank yourself for doing it. Orderliness will be empowering, and paying closer attention to deadlines, details, and rules will help tidy up your own mind and emotions so that you feel freer to enjoy yourself when pleasure calls, which it is likely to do frequently!

The central message of 2018 and the next couple of years is to specialize in your studies or work, hone your skills, and lay the groundwork for future projects. While for some of you daily responsibilities or obligations to siblings, studies, and acquaintances increase, you’re doing important work for future security and success.

Towards the end of 2018, you’ll feel a stronger desire to feel comfortable, secure, and rooted. If you’ve played your cards right, a raise, bonus, substantial gift, or some other material increase can come into your life. Even if material benefits are not apparent during Jupiter’s transit of your solar second house from November forward, it can be a time of indulgence and abundance. It’s a great time to build on existing projects and businesses.

While in many ways this is a “me” year, the “we” part is likely to move away from status quo. The year 2018 hosts a retrograde Mars period (from June 26-August 27) and a retrograde Venus period (from October 5-November 16), pointing to some slowdowns, retro callbacks, and apparent backtracking when it comes to desires, feelings, and affections. In fact, Venus is partly retrograde in your sign. Uranus in your partnership sector for some of the year is more of a hint of things to come at this point, but it’s introducing a longer-term theme of excitement and a non-traditional approach to close relationships.

Home, family, and career matters require new beginnings or slate-cleaning this year. Balancing your personal life with professional responsibilities or outside interests is a big theme in 2018. Rewards are great if you can rise to the challenge with your duties, career, or public life.

Take full advantage of the Jupiter-Pluto influence active until September. It’s subtle, so you have to look for the opportunities, but it’s a time of personal empowerment through your communications, ideas, projects, studies, and connections. Connecting with people who help you further your goals and dreams is likely in 2018."
