The Week Ahead for Scorpio

22nd Jan 2018 - 28th Jan 2018Revenge is a dish best served cold.  

Mars exits your sign, slowing the pace and helping you feel more chilled about life, love and the rest. That having been said, with Pluto and Uranus at full throttle, you could be faced with a situation you do not want and/or feel you have played no part. Do your best to leave other people to sort their own problems: don’t get involved.

But where you are directly implicated tackle the matter with dignity and patience. There is a solution to every problem, and if someone is not playing fair with you or you feel hurt and rejected, your best form of defence is to succeed and shine elsewhere. And if that is going to take time, so be it.

The Month Ahead for Scorpio

 A year that opens with Jupiter in your sign has to be a good year; nay, a great year! Growth is assured, whether we’re talking personal, professional, financial and certainly experiential. You can expect to travel too, with some of the more important journeys being taken this month and in July. The weekend of the 7th January brings Mars and Jupiter together, encouraging you to make bold moves and have absolute confidence in the events currently in motion and those in the planner. Of course, there is no such thing as a perfect month, so do your best to rise above any of the inconveniences mid-month. The total lunar eclipse of the 31st brings a family or career issue right into the spotlight. Think: endings and beginnings.

The Year Ahead for Scorpio (2018)


If you have felt life has plateaued or you have been struggling unsuccessfully to achieve a specific objective, this trend is either over or near an end. Jupiter’s entry into your sign last November marked the beginning of an expansive twelve-month phase during which your success rate should be higher than for many years.

Your upwardly-mobile progress isn’t a matter of luck or good karma, but driven by risk and self-belief. Helping you take more risks and thus change your life in ways you had but dreamed of is Uranus. This planet will enter your opposite sign in May, and the first glimpse you could have of its dynamite potential will be on or near the 16th and later in the year, around 24 October.

Other periods of 2018 set to make a difference to your future are late January, mid-February and early August. You may not love everything that happens to you this year, but as 2019 comes in you should be able to look back on more than one superb event.

Love and relationships

Lack of excitement is not something you’ll be complaining about, especially if you have an October birthday. Sudden, passionate encounters and unexpected break-ups could all be part of love’s rich pattern. But, remember: you are the one with the magic dust in your pocket, courtesy of Jupiter.

From September Venus will increase your chances of finding the “One” and experiencing greater happiness in your love life, and should you be ready to tie the knot, the weekend of 14 April and 8 December could be perfect. While 2018 is a time to embrace your power, what will increase your chances of keeping love is giving a partner plenty of freedom.

Relationships require room to breathe. Those of you experiencing the Uranus opposition (ages 42-44) are first in the queue when it comes to life changes in general and relationship U-turns in particular.

Work, life goals and finance

The definition of luck - the moment preparation meets opportunity – has rarely been more in evidence than in 2018. Yes, there will be fortunate developments that come out of the blue (and on at least one occasion it will seem as though you just happened to be in the right place at the right time) but great opportunities are your reward for hard effort and sustained faith in yourself.

Some Scorpios will take on a lead role; others will start their own company or see their business expand; and although there could be problems with partnerships and organizations you have relied upon, an element of divine providence is behind any splits and spats.

The eclipse cycle, which began in August 2016 and will end in January 2019 is primarily focused on your career and home life, thus 31 January, 15 February, 27 July and 11 August are dates around which some of the most course-changing events of the year occur.

Celestial Tip

Pride and fear are the two biggest obstacles to your success and happiness. Keep your eyes on your end game, and prepare to write some new life scripts. As soon as the year begins, get going on your plans.

It will be easier to chart your own course during the first six months, after that the element of the unusual and unexpected will be in play. The Jupiter-Neptune trine adds a divine element to 2018’s forecast, with some Scorpios realizing a dream and others experiencing a clear sense of being guided and protected.

And the times when this force is at its strongest is late May and mid-August.
