Scorpio in Love

Do you know a Scorpio who hasn't a tale to tell of passion and heartbreak? I don't. Your sign is all about the glorious highs and deathly lows of the great love affair. You were born to love, live to suffer yet to rise again, like the proverbial phoenix, out of the ashes of each painful lesson in love. There is something deeper and more compelling about you than other women, something that goes beyond physical appearance and charm: you have genuine sexual magnetism, which men cannot resist. Yet like all females who thrive on passion and are driven to extremes, your ardour can draw you into the most inappropriate and mutually-destructive liaisons. Fortunately, like the scorpion itself, you are tough and not only survive the most fatal attraction but always live to exact the sweetest retribution. Oh, that Scorpio sting in the tail...

What, of course, would make the path to love and happiness a whole lot straighter and smoother would be to make a choice with your head as opposed to your heart. But then, that would be to deny yourself those sojourns in the troughs of pain and despair, which somehow replenish you. Then there's overcoming your jealousy and possessiveness. You were not born with the live-and-let-live gene, but, with practice you can acquire the appearance of giving a partner his space and you can conquer the desire to put him through a third-degree each time he's late for dinner. It is true to say that of all the signs Scorpios are their own worst enemies: creating unnecessary conflict and suffering agonies over hurts, real and imagined, but let's not forget that the making-up more than makes up for all the aggro. Indeed, you have the capacity to continue living the grande passion well into the geriatric years!

The Scorpios Man

You see that man, peering at you with unblinking intensity, seemingly oblivious of anyone else in the vicinity - that's Mr Scorpio, and he has serious intent. This man is led by his loins. There is no man more deeply and strangely attractive than the Scorpio - he promises to lead you into the dark mystery of sex: you sense you could be in trouble, but who cares! He's not always the most sociable and communicative of guys - he has his own agenda, and that's apparent to all. He is jealous and controlling; he can be cruel and manipulative. Yet he can also be gloriously romantic and utterly loyal. By the way, the best way to hook him is to treat him with disdain: he needs to be kept painfully interested - that's why he is so attracted to airy women, those who are as cool as cucumber and sometimes as cold as ice.

Who's For You

You like what you know, and as far as astrological attraction and compatibility go, that means your co-signs of the Fixed group: Aquarius, Leo, Taurus and Scorpio. Mr. Aquarius radiates charisma and cool, and he is compellingly drawn to your passionate nature. The sexual chemistry is intense, however, in the long run, so too is the conflict. Mr Leo is another must-have for you, and vice versa. Here too the sexual sparks really fly, yet this also tends to become a love-hate relationship. The Taurus man is an ideal mate - equally as sensual, just as possessive but a lot more emotionally stable. This can be a love story with a truly happy ending. Being in a relationship with another Scorpio is like having a twin - sometimes an evil twin and sometimes a soulmate. Capricorn and Virgo are two other signs highly compatible with you - these earth signs ground you, they sustain and contain you.

Life Love Money The Year Ahead for Scorpio

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.

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.

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.
