Health and energy will be better than last year, but will still need watching, Scorpio. Two powerful long-term planets are in stressful alignment with you, so make sure you get enough rest. More on this later.
The year ahead seems happy, however – a fun kind of year. Your 5th house is very powerful – especially until May 11, and from October 29 to December 21. So roughly half the year. This is a time for exploring the fun side of life. Good for creative hobbies. Those of you who are of childbearing age are more fertile than usual. In general, it is good (and fulfilling) to be involved with children.
Finances are excellent this year – especially until May 11 and from October 29 to December 21. From May 11 to October 29, and then again from December 21, there are excellent job opportunities. Unemployed Scorpios will not be unemployed for long. Even those already employed can be offered better job opportunities, either with their present employer or with a new one. More details later.
Saturn has been in your 4th house since December 2020, and remains there for the year ahead. Thus the home and family situation seems burdensome. You’re taking on more responsibility at home. More on this later.
Uranus has been in your 7th house of love for some years now and will be there for some more to come. This is testing marriages and long-term relationships. As if this wasn’t enough, the four eclipses in the year ahead also impact here. Love can be stormy. Details later.
Mars spends an unusual amount of time in your 8th house of regeneration this year – over four months. (Generally, he spends a month and a half in a sign.) This is giving a strong message. It can show surgery for you – or it can be recommended – and financial changes for children and children figures in your life. More on this later.
Pluto has been in your 3rd house for twenty or so years – a very long-term transit. He will be there for the year ahead but is getting ready to leave. This impacts on siblings, sibling figures and neighbours. Your neighbourhood has undergone radical transformation over the years. Siblings and sibling figures have led stormy, tumultuous lives. For students below college level, learning has been slower, but what was learned was deeper.
Your most important interests this year are communication and intellectual interests; home and family; children, fun and creativity; health and work (from May 11 to October 29 and from December 21 onwards); and love and romance.
Your paths of greatest fulfilment this year are children, fun and creativity (until May 11 and from October 29 to December 21); health and work (from May 11 to October 29 and December 21 onwards); and love and romance.
(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 we mentioned, is much improved over last year but still needs attention. The good news is that your 6th house becomes very powerful after May 11. So you will be focused here. On the case. Watchful.
There is much you can do to enhance your 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):
Important foot reflexology points for the year ahead
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 especially below them.
- The heart became especially important last year and is still important in the year ahead. The reflex is shown above. Chest massage – especially of the breastbone and upper rib cage – will also strengthen the heart. The important thing with the heart is to cultivate faith rather than worry and anxiety. The consensus among spiritual healers is that worry and anxiety are the root causes of heart problems.
- The liver and thighs become an important area after May 11 when Jupiter enters your 6th house. They will be important next year too. The reflexes are shown above. Regular thigh massage will not only strengthen the liver, but the lower back and colon as well.
- The colon, bladder and sexual organs are always important areas for Scorpio and this year is no different. Safe sex and sexual moderation continue to be priorities.
- The head and face. Regular scalp and face massage should be part of your normal health regime. This will not only strengthen the head and face but the entire body as well. Craniosacral therapy is an excellent treatment for you.
- The adrenals. These too are always important for Scorpio, and the reflexes are shown above. The vital thing here is to avoid anger and fear, the two emotions that stress them out. Meditation is a big help here.
- The musculature. You don’t need to be a body-builder with bulging muscles. You only need good muscle tone. Weak or flabby muscles can knock the spine and skeleton out of alignment, which can cause all kinds of other problems. So vigorous physical exercise is important for you – according to your age and stage in life.
- The lungs, arms, shoulders and respiratory system will become important for you from August 20 onwards, when your health planet Mars camps out in Gemini for over four months. The reflex points are shown above.
Mars’s unusually long stay in your 8th house shows that surgery could be recommended to you. Perhaps you see surgery as the quick fix to a health problem. (You have this tendency by birth, but this period even more so.) However, detox regimes are less drastic and might do the same things, though they usually take longer. Explore detox first.
Mars, your health planet, while not the fastest or slowest of the planets, will nevertheless move through six signs and houses of your Horoscope this year. So, there are many short-term health trends that are best dealt with in the monthly reports.
Home and Family
Your 4th house has been prominent since last year and is a house of power this year too. Many of you moved last year, but it was complicated. A move in the year ahead is not likely – or advisable. You might feel cramped where you are but it is better to make more efficient use of the space that you have than to move.
The family situation seems stressful. You seem bound by duty and obligation, not by love and joy. There are disappointments here. You are taking on more responsibility with family matters and thus it seems a burden. You sort of have to grit your teeth and endure it: there’s no way to escape. This seems a karmic situation. Handling this will lead to much spiritual growth.
Saturn in the 4th house gives a tendency to depression. You need to avoid this as it never helps. Meditation will be very useful here. Learn to enjoy your burdens rather than chafe at them.
Saturn rules your 3rd house of communication and intellectual interests. Thus you are making the home as much a place of learning as a home. You’re building up the library, installing computers and software. Many of you are involved in home schooling. Many of you will hold classes or lectures at home. You’re probably installing new communications equipment too.
The 3rd house also rules siblings, sibling figures and neighbours. Siblings could be moving in with you or spending much time in your home. The neighbours seem unusually involved in the home and family matters.
If you’re planning a major renovation or construction project in the home, March 6 to April 15 would be a good time. The latter half of July also seems good. If you’re redecorating or otherwise beautifying the home, March 6 to April 5 and June 9–12 are good times.
A parent or parent figure is having a rough time this year. He or she seems unduly pessimistic and feel older than their years. Sudden mood changes afflict him or her. There is a tendency to multiple moves these days – this has been going on for some years. Sometimes it’s not an actual move, but he or she is living in different places for long periods of time. The other parent figure has a quiet kind of family year.
Siblings and sibling figures are very focused on finance and will tend to prosper. A move could happen after May 11. (It could happen next year too.) Children and children figures in your life could be undertaking serious renovations in the home from August 20 onwards, but a physical move is not likely. Children need to watch the temper from August 20 onwards. Grandchildren, if you have them, are having a stable kind of family year.
Finance and Career
Your financial planet, Jupiter, behaves unusually this year. Normally he will spend nearly all the year in one sign. This year he spends approximately half the year in Pisces and half the year in Aries. This would tend to show important financial changes happening this year, a shift in financial attitudes. But finances look good – especially until May 11 and from October 29 to December 21, when Jupiter will be in your 5th house of fun, children and personal creativity. He will also be travelling with Neptune, the most spiritual of all the planets. This gives many messages. You are more speculative this year and tend to be lucky. You spend more on children and can earn from them as well. When they are younger they can inspire you – motivate you – to earn more. Sometimes they inadvertently give you profitable ideas. If they are older, the financial support can be more tangible. This transit also shows happy money: money that is earned in happy ways and that is spent on happy things. There is financial joy during this period. Jupiter travelling with Neptune shows a fabulous financial intuition – the shortcut to wealth. Good intuition is worth more than many years of hard labour.
Those of you involved in the creative arts will find your work more marketable this year. Your personal creativity is also very much enhanced.
You spend on the children and can earn from them as well, as we mentioned. But you can also profit from entertainment and music. Companies and industries that cater to youth are interesting investments. Oil, natural gas, shipping, shipbuilders, fisheries, water bottling or purifying companies and certain pharmaceuticals are all interesting investments this year.
On May 11 Jupiter moves into Aries, your 6th house. Jupiter is stronger in your 5th house than he is in your 6th, so you will work harder for earnings, but they will come. You still seem to take risks after May 11 as well. You make quick financial judgements and perhaps jump into things – investments and purchases – too quickly. But when the intuition is good these things work out. Jupiter in Aries likes the ‘quick buck’ – fast money. Be careful here as there are predators out there who exploit this tendency.
Jupiter in Aries favours earning the old-fashioned way – through hard work and productive service. Very nice job opportunities are coming in this period too. This position favours the health industry – pharmaceuticals, health foods, health products and companies that supply doctors and surgeons. You might be spending more on health, but you can earn from it too.
This doesn’t seem a particularly strong career year. Home and family seem much more important. Your 10th house of career is basically empty (only short-term planets move through there) while your 4th house of home and family is prominent all year. In addition, almost all of the long-term planets (with the exception of Uranus) are in the night side, the bottom half of your chart. So the year ahead is about dealing with the family and your emotional wellness. Once this is in order, the career will fall into place.
Love and Social Life
As we mentioned earlier, love is very challenging this year. Uranus in your 7th house is testing current relationships. Even friendships of the heart are being tested. By the time Uranus is finished with you in a few years, you will be in a whole new social circle. You are being liberated socially – though it might not feel that way while it’s happening.
So, those of you who are married or involved in serious relationships will need to work harder to keep things together this year. I have seen marriages weather a Uranus transit, but much, much work (and sacrifice) was involved in this. Most people are not willing to pay the price. This will be a good test of your commitment to each other.
If you are single it’s probably not wise to marry this year. Things are too unstable. Enjoy love for what it is, no need to get into commitments that might not hold up.
Though love is unstable this year it is, nevertheless, very exciting. All your assumptions about it are blown to smithereens. Love and romantic opportunity can happen any time in any place. You could be doing a mundane task like taking out the garbage and Mr or Ms Right happens by. The only problem is the stability of these things. Love can come unexpectedly and end just as unexpectedly. But no matter, tomorrow is another day and more love can happen. While you yourself might be more stable in your affections, you tend to attract people who are like that. They want freedom.
This, as we have mentioned in past reports, favours serial love affairs rather than marriage.
Uranus is your family planet. His position in your house of love has many meanings. You are socializing more from home and with the family. You are attracted to people with strong family values. Family members or family connections can be important in love. In some cases, the family is meddling too much in your love life, and not in a good way. Family disputes can be one of the causes for the problems in your relationship.
Fast-moving Venus is your love planet, and in the course of a year she will move through your entire 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.
Saturn has been in your 4th house since last year, and this creates a tendency to repress your feelings. Generally, you don’t feel safe expressing your true feelings and so they are bottled up inside. This can’t go on for too long. (It is like trying to repress a bowel movement.) Control of the emotional nature is a great thing, and it is one of the spiritual lessons for the year ahead. But control has nothing to do with repression. One directs the emotions through the attention and the will. This is often hard to do when one is boiling over with negativity. So, what is needed is a positive way to release negative emotion in a way that is harmless to you and the people around you.
Once the negative feelings are released, it is then very easy to change the mood to something positive and constructive. You can repeat positive affirmations, chant mantras, pray and meditate. All these things will change the mood.
Uranus has been in your 7th house of love for some years now and will be there for some more to come. Aside from the worldly phenomena that this produces, there are spiritual lessons happening that will last for the rest of your life. The purpose is to get comfortable with romantic change and instability. Embrace it. Roll with the punches. Nature always compensates: if one thing is taken away something else will come to replace it – and often better. But as long as you are in turmoil about it, you won’t experience it. Instead, learn to accept what comes.
This is a year where many of you will experience heightened creativity. Many of you will discover creative talents that you never knew you had. Spirit is inspiring you in this area. Expressing this inspiration will not only bring more joy into your life but will enhance your bottom line as well.
