On Saturday Mars arrives in your sign for a six week transit. This is going to be very good news if you’ve been lacking drive or enthusiasm recently, but not such a welcome prospect if it won’t take much breech your tolerance threshold. Practice those deep breaths and keep reminding yourself to pick your battles.
Fortunately, there is also a generous and fortunate sun-Jupiter conjunction, which at the very least could manifest as a lucky mistake, but hopefully as a long-awaited positive development. There is a new start written in these stars, whether you knowingly open a fresh chapter or events do the job for you.
Distance and perspective play a huge part in July’s success story. First, you could be jetting off to faraway places, and, second, by removing yourself from the heart of a situation you will be able to see it a lot more clearly. Give other people a chance to explain themselves and avoid cutting someone or something out of your life simply to make a point. A big romance could be in store, and possibly away from the home base or with someone from a different background, and if you’re ready to turn a love affair into a life-long commitment, the week of the 22nd looks perfect. On the 16th, Jupiter reaches the highest point in your solar chart, and for the next twelve months will be helping you rise up the ladder of success. Events on or near the 26th could set the ball rolling, and this is certainly the time to make a bold move.
The Year Ahead for Scorpio
Two down; one to go! Yes, Saturn is on its way out of your sign, and he’s been keeping the best till last. Over the past two years, you have had no choice but to learn patience and gain strength, and it is these qualities that now provide the platform for success. You should also add courage to that list of virtues, because with Jupiter in the zone of life-goals from July onwards opportunities will arise that could take you to the top, and certainly into new territory.
(I hope you’re planning to travel in 2014, because people and places far away could be the passport to a new and better future.) The eclipses of 29 April and 23 October should produce some of the year’s highlights, and if you want the earth to move, you should aim to get going around those dates.
You won’t be taking into 2015 everything that and everyone who is with you at the start of this year: Saturn and his scythe will be making cuts, but like a butterfly, the only way you can use those wings is to break out of the chrysalis.
You are quite a different person from who you were at the start of the Saturn cycle in 2010: older, wiser and seasoned to perfection! You have come through tough times and sad times, but your spirit is strong and if you ended a long-term relationship you’re ready to dip your toes again in the magical waters of romance.
June and late October through November are times when Venus will be helping the cause of true love, and if you meet someone on or near those eclipse dates, he or she could be the “One”. 10 May, 13 June, 13 and 18 November are other dates of importance. Fear must not be allowed to prevent you from entering or leaving a relationship.
Once you make your move from the heart, the universe will back you. Also, don’t feel used and abused simply because you are the one making the money and doing more of the work of relationship: deep down you like it this way – it gives you power and control.
The only one standing in the way of that position you want, that goal you have in your sights, is you. On the one hand, you do not make it easy for people to give you a leg up the ladder, and, on the other, when you get frustrated you sabotage your opportunities. So, your first affirmation of 2014 should be: exude positivity and confidence whatever the circumstances.
A job could come up that will draw on skills that have been largely unused or you may be offered a position far away from the home base. Once Jupiter arrives on your Mid-heaven (16 July) doors will open and the spotlight will be on you.
In some cases, this will translate quite literally in that you will experience a degree of fame, but for most Scorpios this is simply a year-long period in which good fortune and positions of leadership can be yours. As for money: any problems can be resolved satisfactorily, but you will need to start saving.
