Scorpio – October 23- November 21
Pluto rules your sign and Mars co-rules. Since Pluto is the snail of the zodiac, there isn’t much change in its movements from month to month. The planet has been in Capricorn since 2008, forming a beneficial angle to your sun sign, and that trend will continue until January 2025. However, it will enter Aquarius in March 2023, but then turns retrograde two months later and slips back into Capricorn. In the monthly roundups, note when Pluto is retrograde and when other transiting planets make angles to it.
Mars moves more quickly and in 2019, it transits eight signs, including Scorpio, and won’t be retrograde. Pay close attention to what it’s doing each month and which planets are forming angles to it. You’ll also find information on the other transiting planets and retrogrades, new and full moons, and eclipses.
Welcome to 2019! It gets off to a great start with Mercury entering Capricorn on January 4 and enhancing your communication skills. It’s traveling with both Saturn and Pluto, so your intellect is focused, more serious, and able to penetrate to the depths of whatever you’re doing. This transit lasts until January 24, then Mercury enters Aquarius. Between then and February 10, your mind is busy exploring unusual ideas and experimenting with how these ideas can be implemented. You may be looking for ways to refurbish your home so that it better reflects you and your family.
On the 5th, the solar eclipse in Capricorn should be quite positive for you. New opportunities surface in learning, studying, writing and speaking and, because Capricorn is involved, with your career. Neptune in Pisces forms a beautiful angle to the eclipse degree, indicating that opportunities may involve the arts, your spirituality, and imagination. Pluto is conjunct within five degrees of the eclipse degree, so the opportunities that surface put you in a more powerful place.
Uranus turns direct in Aries on January 6. You may feel a deeper need now for independence in your daily work and it may urge you to strike out on your own or, at the very least, to make preparations to do so.
Between January 7 and February 3, Venus transits Sagittarius and your financial area. For the last year or so, you’ve been enjoying Jupiter’s expansion in this area of your chart and with Venus traveling with Jupiter, money flows in. Your expenses may spike, too, but you’ll have the cash to cover any surprises that come up. In romance, you may meet someone whose beliefs and values are like yours.
The lunar eclipse in Leo on January 21 occurs in your career area. Since Leo is involved, your creativity is also impacted. You may feel that your professional autonomy or your creativity is eclipsed in some way and it triggers a powerful emotional response. But because you’re a Scorpio, you’re able to restrain your response.
