Health and energy are a bit more delicate than last year, but by the end of the year, things should improve. Follow the guidelines given later on.
The family situation is important this year but bittersweet. There are many happy things going on but also a few disappointments. The emotional life seems up and down as well. More on this later.
The year ahead seems basically happy, although your energy could be better. There will be more fun in your life from May 14 to July 29. Women of childbearing age are more fertile all year.
This is an excellent year for students below college level. This has been the trend for many years now and it continues in the year ahead. The mental and communication faculties are enhanced these days. You should do well in your studies and you seem very focused on them. But even those not in formal education will be reading more, studying more, and taking courses in subjects that interest them. Some of you might be teaching courses or giving seminars and workshops in your areas of expertise.
Love is both challenging and exciting this year. Those of you who are married are having their marriages tested. They will not necessarily fail (the stars impel but they don’t compel), but it will take much effort to hold things together. Singles will date and go out, but marriage is not advisable – not for a few years anyway. More on this later.
We have four eclipses in the year ahead – the usual amount. Two of them will occur in your money house – the lunar eclipse of May 26 and the solar eclipse of December 4. These signal important and dramatic changes in your finances. The lunar eclipse of November 19 will occur in your 7th house of love, further testing existing relationships, while the solar eclipse of June 10 occurs in your 8th house and can bring encounters with death – generally on the psychological level, rather than actual death – and perhaps near-death kinds of experiences. We will go deeper into this in the monthly reports.
Your major areas of interest in the year ahead will be communication and intellectual interests; home and family; children, fun and creativity; and love and romance.
Your paths of greatest fulfilment this year will be sex, personal reinvention and transformation, and occult studies; home and family (until May 14 and from July 29 to December 30); and children, fun and creativity (from May 14 to July 29 and from December 30 onwards).
(Please note that this is an astrological perspective on health and not a medical one. In days of yore there was no difference, both these perspectives were identical. But these days there could be quite a difference. For a medical perspective, please consult your doctor or health practitioner.)
Health, as was mentioned, is more delicate than last year (and much more delicate than the past few years). For most of the year three long-term planets – Uranus, Jupiter and Saturn – are in stressful alignment with you. This is not enough to cause sickness, but your overall energy is less than usual. The problem this year is that your 6th house of health is basically empty – only short-term planets move through there and the effects are short term. You might not be paying the attention to health that you should do.
The good news is that there is much you can do to enhance the health and prevent problems from developing. Give more attention to the following – the vulnerable areas of your Horoscope this year (the reflex points are shown in the chart below):
- Try to massage all of the foot on a regular basis – the top of the foot as well as the bottom – but pay extra attention to the points highlighted on the chart. When you massage, be aware of ‘sore spots’ as these need special attention. It’s also a good idea to massage the ankles and below them.
- The colon, bladder and sexual organs are always important for Scorpio as these areas are ruled by your sign. Safe sex and sexual moderation are always important for you. A herbal colon cleanse every now and then would be a good idea.
- The head and face. These too are always important for Scorpio: Mars, your health planet, rules these areas. Scalp and face massage should be part of your normal health regime. Craniosacral therapy is excellent for the head. The plates in the skull need to be kept in right alignment.
- The musculature. The muscles are also ruled by Mars, which again makes this an important area for Scorpio. Though you don’t need to be a body builder, good muscle tone is vital. Vigorous physical exercise – according to your age and stage in life – is important. Weak or flabby muscles can knock the spine and skeleton out of alignment and this will cause all kinds of other problems.
- The adrenals are another important health area for Scorpio. The important thing here is to minimize anger and fear, the two emotions that stress them out. Meditation will be a big help here.
- The heart became important to Scorpio in 2019, and became even more important last year when Saturn moved into stressful aspect with you. The reflex is shown above. Spiritual healers attest – and there seems to be a consensus about this – that fear and worry are the root causes of heart problems. So, try to avoid these things. Cultivate faith. Meditation will be a big help here as well.
Mars is your health planet. He is relatively fast moving and during the course of a year he will move through nine signs and houses of your chart. Thus, there are many health trends that depend on where Mars is and the kinds of aspects he receives. These are best dealt with in the monthly reports.
Home and Family
Your 4th house of home and family is easily the strongest in your Horoscope this year overall (although for a brief period – from May 14 to July 29 – the 5th house will be stronger). Thus, it is a major focus.
Emotionally you seem of two minds. One part feels unsafe in expressing your true feelings and tends to repress them; the other part wants to let it all hang out. They are at war with each other. Now one part dominates, now the other. And so you seem subject to mood changes. (And, if not you, family members are like this.) We will discuss this further in the ‘Self-improvement’ section below.
Saturn has been in your 4th house since March of last year and he will remain there for the entire year ahead. Since Saturn is your communication planet you seem to be upgrading your communication systems in the home – perhaps installing smart appliances, or new communication equipment. There are more books and periodicals in the home. It is a nice transit for home schoolers. You could be hosting (or giving) talks and lectures from your home. Your home is as much a school or place of learning as it is a home.
Jupiter spends most of the year in your 4th house. So, a move could happen, but this seems complicated and fraught with delays. It is ultimately happy, but it’s not a smooth transaction. Jupiter in the 4th house does not always signal a literal move. Often it shows the acquisition of a second home or property, or access to additional homes. The family circle will tend to expand. Usually this happens through birth or marriage, but not always. Sometimes you meet people who are ‘like’ family to you – they fulfil that role in your life.
Jupiter is your financial planet, and Jupiter’s stay in your 4th house indicates you are spending more on the home and family. Often this transit shows someone who earns from the home, through a home office or home-based business. Family and family connections are important in finance. Your home is becoming as much an office as a home.
A parent or parent figure in your life seems overly controlling and pessimistic. However, he or she prospers this year and seems generous with you. He or she can be moving a lot, spending time in many places in a nomadic sort of way. There can be multiple moves or multiple renovations of the home.
A sibling or sibling figure could be moving in with you. He or she seems to feel quite protective towards you. He or she is prospering. A move is more likely next year or the year after than this year.
Children and children figures in your life are travelling more this year (and even more so next year). They are living the high life, but a move is not likely this year (there is nothing against it however). Grandchildren, if you have them, are having a stable family year.
Renovations can happen anytime this year. But January 20 to February 19 seems the best time for such work. If you’re beautifying the home – redecorating or buying objects of beauty for the home – February 1 to February 25 is recommended. The aesthetic sense will be good.
Finance and Career
Though your money house is empty – only short-term planets move through there this year and their impact is short lived – the year ahead looks prosperous.
Your financial planet Jupiter will be in your 4th house for most of the year. Thus, as we mentioned, you are spending more on the home and the family. Probably you’re buying expensive items for the home. Perhaps renovating it. Some of you are buying additional homes or properties. You seem generous with family members – and they with you. There is good family support this year – much better than last year.
The financial planet in the 4th house favours investments in residential real estate, the food business, restaurants, hotels, motels and companies that cater to the home-owner. It also favours certain professions, such as psychology or other forms of emotional therapeutics. It favours the family business or businesses that are run like a family. Family and family connections are important in your financial life – they seem to be playing a big role here.
Jupiter in the sign of Aquarius favours the high-tech sector – companies involved with computers, software, makers of apps, new inventions or innovations. It favours airlines and the travel industry as well.
The financial planet in Aquarius shows a more experimental approach to finance. You’re ready to throw out the rule books and see – through trial, error and experimentation – what works for you. It would favour innovative business start-ups as well.
Jupiter moves into your 5th house temporarily this year, from May 14 to July 29, and then again at the end of the year. This is a very happy financial transit for you. It shows happy money – money that is earned in happy ways. Perhaps you are at a party or the theatre or golf course and you make an important contact. Perhaps you are entertaining customers and showing them a good time. You’re enjoying the act of money making. Further, you’re spending on happy things – on leisure and fun activities. You are enjoying the wealth that you have. This is also a wonderful aspect for speculations. (Next year will be like this too.) Of course, only speculate from intuition – don’t do it automatically.
The financial planet in Pisces provides excellent financial intuition. Pay attention to your dreams. Financial information can come in spiritual ways – through astrologers, tarot readers, spiritual channels – these kinds of people.
Your 10th house of career is not prominent this year. Further, most of the long-term planets are below the horizon of your chart – the night side of the Horoscope. So career is not a major focus this year. The year ahead is more about getting the home, family and emotional life in order. It’s about preparing the ground for future career moves. Your career planet, the Sun, is a fast-moving planet. During the year he will move through ALL the signs and houses of your Horoscope. Thus, there are many short-term career trends that are best dealt with in the monthly reports.
Love and Social Life
The love life this year should be read on two levels. For those of you who are young and single – and who want to stay unattached – you have a fantastic love and social life this year. But for older Scorpios and those in committed relationships, the love life is being severely tested.
If you are in the former group, love is enjoyable and exciting. True, there is a lack of stability: relationships can end at the drop of a hat. But there are always new opportunities – and often better – round the corner. Love can happen at any time, in any place, and in the most unexpected ways. For you it is a period of gaining experience, of experimentation, of learning about love through trial and error. You’re not ready to settle down yet, and nor are the people you’re involved with. Nor should you. Every time you think you’ve met your ‘dream mate’, someone else comes along who is ‘dreamier’.
Uranus has been in your 7th house of love since March 2019. Uranus rules your 4th house of home and family. This gives many messages. You’re socializing more from and with family members. Family and family connections are playing a big role in your romantic life. Often they play cupid. Family values and emotional intimacy are important attractions in love. Often this shows the re-appearance of an old flame.
If you fall into the second category, things are more serious. Your relationship or marriage is being tested, often to destruction. It doesn’t have to be that way – I’ve seen relationships survive under this kind of transit – but few are willing to put in the work necessary, to make the sacrifices necessary, to make things work.
With Uranus in your 7th house for the long haul – he’ll be there for many years to come – you like unconventional friends and relationships. The beloved or friend has to be out of the ordinary – a bit of a rebel. You tend to gravitate to inventors, scientists, astronomers, astrologers, media types and technology people. Doing unconventional things together as a couple could save troubled relationships. You need to bring some excitement and change into the relationship.
Uranus in your 7th house indicates that romantic opportunities can happen online, on dating sites or social media sites. Romance would be conducted in high-tech kinds of ways too.
Venus is your love planet. As regular readers know, she is a fast-moving planet. Every year she will move through all the signs and houses of your chart. Thus, there are many short-term trends in love that depend on where Venus is and the kinds of aspects she receives. These are best dealt with in the monthly reports.
Marriage is not advisable for singles, as was mentioned. You seem to need a period of experimentation to learn what it is you really want. And this is what is happening.
Scorpio is a fixed sign. So, in general, you are not that comfortable with change. (Individual Scorpios can vary from this rule and it depends on their personal Horoscope calculated specifically for them – but here we are talking generally.) You like your routines. You like predictability. Now, with Uranus, in the 7th house of love and social life, predictability is out the window. The only rule socially is change. So, the spiritual lesson this year (and for years to come) is to learn to embrace change, rather than resist it. By the time Uranus is finished with you, you will be in a whole new social circle. Make change your friend.
Spiritual Neptune has been in your 5th house since 2012, will be there for many more. Thus, children or the children figures in your life are undergoing a spiritual transformation. They are having spiritual – supernatural – kinds of experiences. Their dream life is vivid and revelatory. (Their dream life is probably more interesting than their waking life.) This needs to be understood and fostered. Listen to them. Don’t judge. Encourage their spiritual practice.
Earlier we mentioned your emotional ups and downs. A part of you wants to repress your true feelings – generally because you feel it is unsafe to express them. Another part of you wants to express everything. These two urges in you are at war. Sometimes you repress, sometimes you over express. What is needed is a methodology for expressing – discharging – negative feelings in a harmless way. Repression can’t go on for too long. Eventually the feelings will burst forth and their expression is usually out of all proportion to the event that triggered it. There are spiritual techniques for discharging negative feelings. One way is to write them out. Don’t hold back. Write down exactly what bothers you. After half an hour of this, throw away the paper – don’t reread what you have written. Another method is ‘touch and let go’. On a piece of paper write a few short phrases about the issues that trouble you. Then touch the paper and let it go. (Lower the hands and then raise them.) Do this for 20–30 minutes whenever anything bothers you. You will have discharged much of the negativity and you will feel better. When you are finished throw the paper out. Repeat these things as needed.
