Scorpio, over the past years, you’ve been going through some sort of a preparation period. Your thought patterns and how you look at the world began to change either through world travels, meditation techniques or you simply having a think about what it is you actually belief in – religiously, spiritually and philosophically. A somewhat fluid and changeable emotional life added to a kind of flexibility that allowed you to change your mind and start moving into a slightly different direction than you still thought of proper and right a couple of years ago. Since late summer things have changes dramatically and your new solar year kind of starts with a bang. The Sun, Saturn, Venus and Mercury are all in your sign and with Mars, your ruler, teaming up with Pluto in your income sector. A heady mixture and one that seems to hit you right on the head. For a long time, you’ve been feeling as though you are taking a stab in the dark and as challenging as this time period may be for some of you, you are actually at the beginning of a new road – one that still challenges you to think about how you think, your attitudes and behaviour patterns but ultimately one that leads you to shed outdated expectations, demands more integrity of you and you of others including commitment and stability. This is not something that will happen over night but you have begun to travel down that road. In the coming year, progress will be slow but steady – if you want it and allow it to be. At first, you may feel restricted, isolated and a little pressurised to do certain things and move into a certain direction until you ‘accept’ and ‘embrace’ your new responsibilities – in marriage, home and your immediate community environment.
At the same time, as you and your outlook continue to evolve, two of your money houses are activated strongly over the coming year. Not unusual for Scorpios, you’re keen to fill your bank account or should I say, it comes ‘even more’ easily than usual. You’ve got your eye on the prize now and that’s big bucks. As you go through your personal transformation, you also automatically pay more attention to what your goals actually are and how you can reach them – this includes money, for sure, but also the people you surround yourself with and who help you achieve. Some will stay, some will go but those that come in seem to be vastly different from long-standing group of friends – well-connected, intellectuals, thinkers, researchers that seem to bring a new kind of excitement into your life. What you don’t seem to have a lot of over the next year seems to be space, time and room to ‘go within’.
But even though Saturn in your sign can make you a little more pessimistic to start with, Jupiter, the planet of expansion and optimism is still by your side, lifting the load and the mood! This means that you are still able to look at the bigger picture, distancing yourself from whatever obstacles you may face. Not only is this good news for your own well-being but also for the state of your relationships – combined with Saturn setting the, hopefully, right expectations and limits when it comes to relationships, Jupiter and Rahu / the North node ensure you mix with a new crowd and, if you are single, potential suitors. The best times for romance are from February 2015 through to May / June time.
Until the summer of 2015, you’ll get used to a new way of thinking and almost a new way of living your life before it’s down to business again. Remember what you did about 12 years ago? Maybe money was good or your career took off then. Again, Jupiter at the top of your chart makes you a busy bee at work. You may be expanding your business, connecting with people from all over the world, you may travel more than ever for work, doing your deals and making sure people know and pay for your worth – make sure you don’t sell yourself short, one of the ‘risks’ of having Saturn in your own sign. A year full of steady growth awaits with just the right amount of challenges that will test your patience. But in the end, it should be one of the more rewarding years of your life! Enjoy.
