Scorpio (24 October – 21 November)
Action planet Mars is on the move this month and importantly for you it leaves your sign of Scorpio on the 6th. Mars has been in your sign since the beginning of the year and this is a strong Mars, driven and powerful.
Mars in Scorpio is passionate and focuses on your personal goals and aims. You have a lot of energy to channel into your personal goals although at times it can feel too full on. Either way, you need to back off once Mars leaves your sign and find a different pace that suits you better.
Mars will return to Scorpio later this year when you can come back to a personal project or goal with fresh energy and passion. For now, life’s calling you in a different direction and you have other priorities to attend to.
Mars moves into Sagittarius and your money sector on the 6th and there’s an urgency about finances. You might be keen to earn more, to sort out your financial situation or to pay off a loan or debt. This is where to channel your energy and drive and go for it in style. Mars will turn retrograde in Sagittarius on April 17th so get money matters sorted as best you can before then.
Another planet in Sagittarius and your money sector is Saturn and Saturn is renowned as the taskmaster of the heavens. When it comes to money, Saturn represents lack rather than abundance and at its best, this is about taking a sensible approach to finances, saving rather than spending, and being patient where money’s concerned.
Saturn turns retrograde this month on the 25th which is good news for you because it means Saturn’s energy is weakened. Saturn remains on go slow until mid-August 2016. The combination of Mars in your money sector and Saturn slowing down is another indication that this is a go-for-it month with regard to money and finances. Put your own needs first and fight for what’s rightfully yours.
Your working life is also under the cosmic spotlight at the time of the equinox, on March 20th. This is the date when the Sun enters Aries and begins its annual journey round the zodiac. This evokes a theme of fresh starts, renewal, doing things differently. You might be ready to close one door in your working life and open a new door.
If this is the case, you’re bang on trend because the lunar eclipse on the 23rd cuts across the Aries/Libra axis of your chart. This often indicates a turn around situation and for you, it’s important to consider your lifestyle. When planets are in Aries, your work and health are linked. You want less stress in your life and if your job is physical or putting too much pressure on you, something’s got to give.
Uranus in Aries can point towards freelance work as Uranus is unconventional. It’s also linked to technology so this is a good time to consider an online job or business. Whatever ends or you begin on or around the eclipse, consider the bigger picture. What you do in life must nurture your mind, body and soul. It’s a holistic whole and if anything’s out in one of these areas, it has a knock-on effect in the rest. Look after your well-being.
Your home and family are linked to work and money matters too especially in the first week of the month. You might be going into business with a family member, someone helping you or you helping someone close. Use your close bonds to improve your current situation. Talk to family and work together as a team.
When it comes to love, this is potentially a romantic month as the planets build in your fellow water sign Pisces. Love planet Venus enters Pisces on the 12th and a few days beforehand on the 9th there’s a powerful solar eclipse in this same sector of your chart.
This is a heady combination especially as romantic Neptune is pulled into the mix. At its best this is a time when you may fall head over heels in love and lose yourself in a waft of romance. Yet if you’re in a relationship and you meet someone new on or around these key dates, this will be confusing for you.
Neptune rules illusion and eclipses often coincide with twists of fate. Keep your feet on the ground when it comes to love especially if you have other people to consider, a partner, a lover, your children. Tradition states that you’re wise to wait a few days after an eclipse before making any important decision.
Pisces is a creative sign and it rules a creative sector of your chart. Throwing yourself into an artistic project or embracing spirituality are both ways to make the most of this watery realm. Take care of any activity that smacks of addiction or temptation because there’s always the danger with Pisces that you get swept away and lose touch of everyday reality. Think of the vast, boundless nature of the sea ruled by Pisces’ planet Neptune.
Earth signs help to ground you and they invoke common sense. The 16th is an important date for you when the planet of good fortune, Jupiter in Virgo, teams up with your ruling planet Pluto in Capricorn. Together these two conjure up magic, they’re about big power and hidden riches.
In your chart, both Jupiter and Pluto are in people sectors so look out for friends or colleagues who can help you on or around this date. Communicate honestly and openly; be proud of who you are and share your message. Keep your eyes and ears peeled for a message or a talk that inspires you.
