Scorpio Horoscope 2018

Jupiter’s move into your sign on October 10 of last year initiated a multi-year cycle of prosperity. He remains in your sign almost all of the year ahead – until November 8 – so the money is rolling in. Jupiter in anyone’s sign is a prosperity signal, but for you more so than most. Jupiter is your financial planet. So his impact on finances is much stronger. On November 8 Jupiter will enter your money house – his own sign and house. This brings more prosperity. More on this later.

Pluto has been in your 3rd house for many years now, since 2008. So you’ve been very interested in communication and intellectual pursuits. This has been very good for students as it shows success in their studies – especially for students below college level. Saturn entered your 3rd house at the end of 2017 and will be there for two more years, signalling that students will now have to work harder in school to achieve their grades. They need more discipline. They can’t just coast in their studies – more is being demanded. Teachers, lecturers, writers, journalists, sales and marketing people will all have to work harder too – there are greater demands being placed on them.

Scorpio Horoscope 2018

Though you will find career activities fulfilling and are likely to succeed, this is not an especially strong career year. There will be many changes here, course corrections and the like in the year ahead. We will have three Solar Eclipses in 2018 (usually there are only two), and two eclipses occur in your 10th house of career. So you can expect change and shakeups this year. More on this later.

Uranus will leave your 6th house of health and work this year – but only for a while. Next year he will leave for the long haul. In the meantime you get an announcement of things to come (from May 16 to November 6). He enters your 7th house of love and starts to test your current marriage or relationship. However, there will be more stability at your place of work and with those you employ (if you do). More details later.

Neptune has been in your 5th house since 2012 and will be there for many more years. This shows that the children and children figures in your life are becoming more spiritual. They seem very idealistic. Those of you in the creative arts will find your work much more inspired. Your taste in entertainment is becoming more refined – more spiritualized.

Your most important interests this year will be the body, image and personal pleasure (until November 8); finance (from November 8 onwards); communication and intellectual interests; children, fun and creativity; health and work (until May 16 and from November 6 onwards); and love, romance and social activities (from May 16 to November 6).

Your paths of greatest fulfilment this year will be the body, image and personal pleasure (until November 8); finance (from November 8 onwards); career (until November 17); and religion, philosophy, higher education and foreign travel (from November 17 onwards).

Scorpio Health 2018 Horoscope

(Please note that this is an astrological perspective on health and not a medical one. In days of yore there was no difference, both of these perspectives were identical. But now there could be quite a difference. For a medical perspective, please consult your doctor or health practitioner.)

Health looks excellent in the coming year. As the year begins there are no long-term planets in stressful alignment with you. In fact, almost all of them are in harmonious alignment. Only on May 16, as Uranus moves into Taurus, will there be any long-term planet stressing you. And this will only be briefly – until November 6. (And those of you born late in the sign of Scorpio – from October 30 to November 22 – won’t feel this too much.) So health and energy will be good this year. Sure, there will be periods in the year where health and energy are ‘less easy’. These periods come from the transits of short-term planets. They pass quickly and are not trends for the year.

Your 6th house is strong for about half the year. Uranus moves in and out of there this year so you’re focused on health, but the focus is waning (as it should).

With more energy at your disposal, those with pre-existing conditions should feel less. They would tend to be in abeyance as the body has more energy to neutralize them.

Good though your health is you can make it even better. Give more attention to the following – the vulnerable areas of your Horoscope (the reflex points are shown in the chart below):

  • The colon, bladder and sexual organs. These are always important for Scorpio. Safe sex and sexual moderation are always issues for you. A herbal colon cleanse every now and then would be a good idea – especially if you’re feeling under the weather.
  • The head, face and scalp. These too are important for you, as Mars, the ruler of these areas, is your health planet. Scalp and face massages should be part of your regular health regime. Craniosacral therapy will also be effective here.
  • The musculature. Another important area for you, as it is also ruled by Mars. A weak or flabby muscle can knock the spine and skeleton out of alignment. Thus, good muscle tone is important. Vigorous physical exercise – according to your age and stage in life – is important.
  • The adrenals – another area ruled by Mars. Anger and fear – the fight or flight response – stresses the adrenals so avoid these emotions as much as possible. Meditation is a big help here. Ginseng is said to be helpful for the adrenals.
  • The ankles and calves. These have only become important in the past seven or so years as Uranus, the ruler of these areas, has occupied your 6th house. They should be regularly massaged, and give the ankles more support when you exercise. Your health planet will spend an unusual amount of time – almost five months – in the sign of Aquarius, the sign that rules these areas. So continue to give attention here this year. Next year, from March 7, when Uranus will leave your 6th house for good these will become less important.

Uranus is your home and family planet, thus good health for you also means good domestic health, good family relations and good emotional health. If problems (God forbid) arise, restore harmony at home and with the family as quickly as possible. It is very important to maintain your emotional harmony. Moods should be kept positive and constructive. Meditation will be a help here.

Jupiter spends most of the year in your 1st house. This is a good thing, but from a health perspective it can lead to weight problems. Enjoy the good life, but there is no need to go overboard here.

Scorpio Home and Family 2018 Horoscope

This has been a tempestuous area – and challenging – for many years now. You and the family (and one of the parents or parent figures in your life) have been in conflict. Passions have been high. The family as a whole, the parent or parent figures have had surgery or near-death kinds of experiences. Perhaps major repairs have been needed in the home and perhaps numerous times. The good news is that things are getting slightly easier. Uranus has moved away from his square to Pluto (an inharmonious aspect). And he is changing signs this year, from militant Aries to more sedate Taurus. The improvements will be even stronger next year – from March 7 onwards – as your family planet moves into Taurus for the long term.

In spite of improving conditions we still see much change and drama in the home and family. There will two eclipses in your 4th house this year. One, a Solar Eclipse on February 15 and the second a Lunar Eclipse on July 27. Often eclipses here bring repairs to the home and dramas in the lives of family members. We will discuss this further in the monthly reports.

Mars will spend an unusual amount of time in your 4th house – five or so months – on and off. Usually he will spend only a month and a half in a sign. This tends to show conflicts with family members, high passions and perhaps health issues in the family. It often shows a need for major repairs. (Some of you might even decide to build a home during this period.)

Uranus, as we mentioned, moves into Taurus from May 16 to November 6. A parent or parent figure becomes more ‘laid back’ and easy going. Since Taurus rules your 7th house of love, there will be a desire for more harmony and stability.

For many years now you’ve been installing health equipment and health gadgets in the home. You’ve been working to make the home (and the family) more healthy. By now the home is as much a health spa as a home. Soon though, the focus will shift to beautifying the home. You will be more concerned with ‘appearance’ than usual. You will redecorate and buy objects of beauty. The home will be a place of beauty as well as a home. In some cases people get carried away and the home becomes more like an art gallery or museum than a home, but the root urge is to beautify it.

There is another reason for this urge to decorate and beautify your nest. You will be doing more entertaining from home. The home will be an important social centre and you want it to look good.

Repairs and renovations can happen anytime this year. But, if you have free will in the matters (not always the case), May 16 to August 13 and September 11 to November 15 would be good.

The beautification of the home is most likely to happen from May 16 to November 6. If you need to do this beforehand, January 18 to March 20 is a good time.

A move is not likely this year – though there’s nothing against it. Siblings and sibling figures in your life have most likely had serial moves in recent years, but things are starting to calm down. They seem ready to settle down. Children and children figures are having an intensely spiritual kind of year, but the home life seems stable. Looks like they’re travelling though.

Scorpios of childbearing age are unusually fertile right now. A pregnancy wouldn’t be a surprise.

Scorpio Finance and Career 2018 Horoscope

You have a very prosperous year ahead, Scorpio. Enjoy.

As we said, Jupiter’s move into your sign announces a multi-year cycle of prosperity. Jupiter is your financial planet and his position in your 1st house for most of the year shows financial windfalls coming to you. The money people in your life are supportive and approving of you. They back you.

It also shows that you’re living a high lifestyle – living on a higher standard than usual. You’re travelling, dressing well, dressing expensively and enjoying the pleasures of the body. More importantly perhaps, you feel prosperous; you look and dress that way, and others see you that way. In the eyes of many in your world you have become the ‘money person’.

Your physical appearance and overall demeanour seem a big factor in earnings, and perhaps this is why you’re spending on yourself and dressing expensively. Many models and athletes have this kind of aspect. They earn because of their physical attributes.

The beautiful thing about this transit is that there’s not much you need to do to attract wealth or financial opportunity. It will find you. Just go about your daily business and it will happen.

Jupiter’s wonderful aspect to Neptune most of the year shows a marvellous financial intuition (the short-cut to wealth) and luck in speculations. It shows ‘happy money’ – money that is earned in pleasurable ways, perhaps while you’re at a party or tennis court or some place of entertainment. It also shows someone who is enjoying his or her earnings. Someone who is spending on leisure and fun activities. It is one thing to prosper and quite another to enjoy the fruits of prosperity. This year you have both.

On November 8, Jupiter will move into your money house, bringing more prosperity. Earnings increase. Assets your own – whether a home, possessions, or your share portfolio – increase in value.

Though you seem successful in your career and seem to be enjoying it (the Moon’s north node is in your 10th house of career almost all year, until November 17) this is not an especially strong career year. There is much change and upheaval going on here. Your career planet, the Sun, will get eclipsed three times this year (usually this happens only twice). Not only that. There will be two eclipses – one solar and one lunar – in your 10th house. Consider this: there will be five eclipses this year, and four of them will affect your career. So, there are many changes in your company, your industry and in the rules and regulations concerning your career. You will have to make many ‘course corrections’ in the year ahead. Your plans are not written in stone.

The Sun is your career planet and he is a fast-moving planet. In any given year he will move through all the signs and houses of your Horoscope, so there are many short-term career trends depending on where the Sun is and the aspects he receives. These are best covered in the monthly reports.

Scorpio Love and Social Life 2018 Horoscope

This area is starting to become more complicated this year. Complicated, but also very exciting. This will be the trend for many more years as Uranus establishes himself in your 7th house of love.

Those of you in existing relationships are going to have the relationship tested – and severely. I have seen marriages survive a Uranus transit – but not many. Those that did required an enormous amount of work and effort (on both sides). If you are willing to put in the effort, things can work out. But without this, it doesn’t look good.

It is very important now to give the spouse, partner or current love as much space as possible – so long as it isn’t destructive. Try to do unconventional things as a couple. Things off the beaten track. Inject change and excitement within the current relationship. With a little creativity this can be done. This will give you a fighting chance.

For singles, Uranus’s move into your 7th house is not a good marriage indicator. It favours serial kinds of love affairs rather than marriage. Part of the reason is that you seem to be attracting ‘non serious’ kinds of people. Yes, they are exciting people, genius types, but not serious. It’s probably not advisable to marry for a while.

The good news, though, is that you have more freedom in love. You’re exploring your social freedom. Love and love opportunities can happen at any time in any place – often when you least expect it, and often when things look darkest. Love appears like a lightning flash in the sky. But, alas, it can disappear just as quickly.

Learning to deal with social instability is one of the main life lessons this year and in coming years.

The family, family connections and a parent or parent figure seem to be playing a big role in the love life. Perhaps they are playing Cupid. Perhaps you meet someone at a family gathering or function. Perhaps all of the above.

By the time Uranus has done his work – in the next seven years – you will be in completely new social circumstances, involved with a new circle of friends.

Venus is your love planet and she is a fast-moving planet. This year she moves through eleven signs and houses of your Horoscope (usually she will move through all of them). Thus there are many short-term love trends that depend on where Venus is at any given time and the kinds of aspects she receives. These are best covered in the monthly reports.

Venus will make one of her rare retrogrades this year – from October 5 to November 16. If love seems to be going backwards instead of forward, or you seem more confused on this issue, don’t despair. This is normal when Venus is retrograde. This is not a time for making important love decisions one way or another. It is a time to review, get the facts, gain mental clarity on the issue, and see where improvements can be made. Then you can act when Venus starts moving forward again.

Scorpio Self-Improvement 2018 Horoscope

Saturn, as we mentioned, is now in your 3rd house. This is a challenging transit for students and intellectual workers. It is good to understand why this is so and the cosmic agenda behind it. Saturn wants to make you a more thorough and deeper thinker. There is an internal need for ‘depth’ – for deep understanding of a subject. So the thought process is slower, but deeper. Saturn says, ‘better to slow down and get it right than to make snap, superficial judgements’. Most schools favour the superficial approach – memorize the facts and spew them out in a test. So, this transit makes things more difficult for students. It will not satisfy you these days. You’ll spend more time on your studies (and in digesting information in general), but what you learn will be understood in a deep way.

The speech will also slow down – even for those of you who are verbally gifted. Circumstances will be arranged where you have to know what you’re talking about before you speak. You’ll have to do your homework. You will speak less, but when you do, you’ll have something to say – something valid.

The children and children figures in your life are becoming ever more spiritual. They are under intense spiritual influences. Their bodies are more sensitive as well. They have a lower tolerance for drugs or alcohol and should avoid these things. Young people in general tend to be idealistic, but this is different. Many are having deep spiritual experiences. They are having prophetic kinds of dreams and experiencing all kinds of supernatural phenomena. Don’t ‘pooh-pooh’ these things. If the child tells you of a dream experience, listen without making a judgement. Some of these dreams can be hidden messages to you and your financial circumstances. ‘Out of the mouth of babes’ goes the saying.

Uranus’s move into your 7th house tends to destabilize the love and social life, but this is not punishment – though at times it can feel this way. There are attitudes (and perhaps people) that need shaking up – that need to be changed. Perhaps you’ve felt imprisoned by a certain set of friends or by your current relationship. You might not feel strong enough to break the bonds. So, the cosmos, through Uranus – the great over-turner – has to come in and do the job for you. If your prayers are to be answered you must allow this ‘shakeup’ to happen.
