    Scorpio, the Scorpion in 2005
    Status & Career: A New Era

    Saturn, the measurer of effort and Jupiter, lord of the Heavens ring the changes for you Scorpions. On July 16th, Saturn moves to the fiery sign of Leo and opens the way in your solar tenth house of profession, status and dealings with authority. There will be change, challenge and important dealings with regard to career or personal direction. Your ability to conduct yourself well, overcome obstacles with persistence and take on responsibility will open the way to a new phase of life. On October 26th, Jupiter enters your sign, setting you on the paths of expansion. Professional or personal opportunity, overseas travel, higher education and connections with important people or teachers may play a part in a cycle of growth. Think deeply. Dig deeply. Ask the right questions. Just make sure the expansion confines itself to your horizons and doesn't do the waistline any damage, for lordly Jupiter can bring as much in the way of indulgence as he does of opportunity.

    On the way to these landmark dates, the outer planets keep the courses set in years past. Revolutionary Uranus continues his journey in Pisces and your solar fifth house, bringing change with creative work, speculative interests, lifestyle and children. However, as he starts the year in tension with warrior Mars, there may be dramatic events, unexpected developments and more than a little impatience on the way to such changes. Don't act in haste. Act with speed to first alter the way you think or see things.

    So to does mystic Neptune continue his enlightening passage through Aquarius and your solar fourth house, drawing you towards a new way of being 'you' by changing the spectrum of your emotional relationships. This has created a cycle of inner examination and spiritual growth, strongly supported by Jupiter's presence in Libra and your solar twelfth house from January till October 26th. Jupiter harmonizes with Neptune in February and March and then again in August, bringing realization and understanding that may be partnered with a new or unusual connection or link, either with someone or through new knowledge or ideas you have been exposed to. You could sail into a new era in the last quarter of 2005 if you have done the work of inner growth.

    2005 Scorpio Love and Money Love and Money Go to Top

    With Venus the goddess in Sagittarius as the year begins, the focus is on the practical for much of the year. Keep what you have ticking over both in the romantic sense and the financial sense. For those in a relationship, plan carefully, discuss important matters and don't get into struggles or risk-taking with regard to money. Build a sound basis for what you want in the future. Be tough and clear about what you need to spend and stick to that. A period of fruition begins on October 26th when Jupiter enters your sign. You can expand or seek new horizons. You will find the first blossoms of the fruits you have worked for. Opportunity favours your effort through a natural development or the workings of fortune. There can be a sense of romance renewed and enjoyment of the pleasures of partnership through travel or simply a more expansive mode of living.

    For the singles, stay within yourselves and learn more about who you are and what you want in the first ten months of the year. If you understand more about what you want, you will make a better decision about who you want to be with. Romance blossoms after October 26th. You will make fortunate connections through travel, educational opportunity, promotion at work or just a more expansive social round. Things could be sizzling as someone new comes into your life or a liaison that's been in the background moves to the front row seats.

    For both the singles and those in a partnership, Pluto the underworld lord still surges through your solar second house of money and resources, challenging you to find new horizons for your financial situation and new ways of making, handling and saving money.

    2005 Scorpio Home and Family Home and Family Go to Top

    From February 21st till August 1st, Chiron, the wounded healer moves to Aquarius and your solar fourth house of home, family and emotion. From there, he returns to the sign of Capricorn until December 6th. He then re-enters Aquarius for a journey of some four years through the emotional life of the Scorpion. This marks the beginning of a cycle of profound change. There may be someone new or different on the scene, either domestically or emotionally and they may come to have a significant influence in your life. There may be a complete change of pattern with regard to your emotional responses or your family life and new influences or practices may bring themselves to bear. You may have to give more support or ask for it with regard to family and loved ones. You may want to dig deep into your past or your feelings in order to understand yourself better. You may try to create a new era with your emotional life. You may want to change your domestic situation either practically or emotionally. There may be an intense cycle of change for a family member. You will come to know yourself better or see another side of yourself in these next four years because of the way your emotional life and responses have had to change.

    In the last week of the year, Venus the goddess turns retrograde in Aquarius and your solar fourth house, in a conjunction with Chiron the wounded healer. Unexpected change may touch your family or emotional life, creating arrivals or departures. You may feel the impact of this change quite powerfully in 2006. This may mark a temporary alteration in cycle for some while for others it will be the beginning of a new era.

    2005 Scorpio Work and Health Work and Health Go to Top

    The Lunar Nodes are making a transit of your solar sixth and twelfth houses this year as they move through the signs of Aries and Libra. Important contacts or connections will be formed that may bear on matters of health and well being, physically, mentally and spiritually. It will be important for you to explore new options with regard to work, training or education and healthcare. Meeting new people or coming into new situations will open the road ahead. March and April may bring health challenges that will need to be met with a willingness to address an old problem in a new way. After July, watch that the load you're taking on doesn't get too much. Delegate as you take on the challenges. The end of October sees both opportunity and support that will bring upliftment of your efforts.

    2005 Scorpio Career Matters Career Matters Go to Top

    Saturn marks the Scorpion's life for change with regard to responsibilities, professional direction and dealings with authority. After a two year sojourn in your solar ninth house that has encouraged you to broaden your knowledge, belief system or vision, Saturn now moves to your solar tenth house on July 16th. This will see an increase in responsibility for you but may also bring pressure to bear in relationships as you seek to maintain what you have and yet take on extra obligations. For some, there will be promotion or improvement while for others there may be a separation or necessary ending that sees you choosing a new career path. For those whose primary obligations are in the family arena, there will be an equivalent process. You may find yourselves with more to do or more people to care for. On both sides of the coin, if you're looking for the easy life, you will have to wait and see what the end of October brings. Nonetheless, you gain greatly by walking the path that calls you. Take on what has to be done. Take authority where you have to and learn to deal with authority where you have to. Learn the arts of negotiation and the skills of patient effort. Whatever the workload, don't let attention to home or emotional life slide. Maintain a balance between work and home and you'll have done what's important. The transit of Saturn through Leo in the two years from July 2005 could usher in an era of new creative or speculative efforts for the Scorpion. You'll have the opportunity to test your powers to the full. For those of you who've been studying or preparing for a new venture, career move or phase of your life, this is the time to put all you faith in yourself and your preparation and forge ahead.

    2005 Scorpio Mercury the MessengerMercury the Messenger  Go to Top

    Mercury moves into retrograde (reverse) motion three times a year for about three weeks each time. This phase heralds a time of confusion and misunderstandings that can affect arrangements, travel, transport, appliances, machinery and communications. The breakdowns that occur are a function of neglect, inattention, simple misunderstandings or component failure. They will often bring to the fore the very contingency we should have planned for and didn't. When the retrograde phase occurs, watch out for such possibilities as well as putting off major decision-making or the signing of crucial documents and agreements. We tend to miss things while Mercury is in reverse motion and then have to come back and do them again. A process of review in the retrograde phase can efficiently show where problems might lie and help us with damage control or the mending of things. Double check arrangements at these times! What you think you've said and what others have understood will often prove to be two different things.

    Mercury's first retrograde cycle begins on March 20th in the sign of Aries and your solar sixth house. There may be delays or unexpected events at work. Routines may be upset or changed. There may be difficulty or conflict with co-workers and misunderstandings or sudden developments may be responsible. You may experience a minor setback with health. Pace yourself. Get a clear picture of what's happened or what's going on then talk and work things through. This cycle comes to an end on April 12th.

    The messenger's next reverse motion cycle begins on July 23rd in the sign of Leo and your solar tenth house. You may have cause or need to review career options. There may be difficulties in communications or dealings with authority. This is a crucial time to look at the overall pattern with regard to profession or the cycle of your responsibilities. You may be making decisions that affect your direction in the long term. This is not a good time to clash with those in authority or set a pattern or resisting necessary change. There may be important developments or dealings with someone older in your family. This cycle comes to an end on August 16th. Don't act in haste or be argumentative at this time. Consider the consequences first. Discuss them with someone who counts.

    Mercury's final retrograde phase comes on November 14th in Sagittarius and your solar second house. You need to review finance and spending. There may be a change with such matters or there may be unexpected expenses. These developments may bring personal change or a different kind of decision-making. Look at the way finance works for you before decide anything. Consult. Make sure communications are clear and there are no misunderstandings about money. Double check payments and billing cycles to make sure everything is working as it should be. This cycle ends on December 4th.

    2005 Scorpio Lady Moon Lady Moon Go to Top

    Your Full Moon comes with a Lunar Eclipse on April 24th, bringing testing aspects from both Venus and Chiron, the wounded healer. There may be significant change with family or loved ones. There could be a departure or an end to a cycle in emotional or domestic life. Health issues may trouble you or a family member. There may be a need to explore or discuss matters from the past that pertain to family or emotional life.

    Your New Moon comes on November 2nd, touching off a fuse paper with Mars but in harmony with Uranus. There may be tension with a partner or close associate and hidden matters or feelings may come to light. A difference in direction between you and someone close may be highlighted. Someone with whom you have a history of strong feeling may reappear in your life. Go back over the old ground before you try to set the new.

    2005 Scorpio Eclipses Eclipses  Go to Top

    Eclipses of both the Sun and the Moon often indicate the end of a cycle or a significant change in the direction or pattern of the affairs governed by the house in which the eclipse falls. Eclipses of the Sun may affect work, direction and relations with people in authority. Eclipses of the Moon may affect matters of home, family and emotions as well as relations with women and children. Both may affect your health.

    There is a Solar Eclipse on April 8th in the sign of Aries and your solar sixth house. You may come to the end of a cycle with work and health. You may stop doing something that has been part of daily routine. There may be an ending in a relationship or connection with a co-worker. Opportunity may change the spectrum of possibilities with work or health. Be careful of exaggerated reactions to change. Someone you relate to through work may go through a change of status.

    On October 3rd, there is a Solar Eclipse at the New Moon in Libra and your solar twelfth house. There may be tiredness or disillusion with people around you and what you are doing. You may need to step back from involvements in order to understand what's going on. You may make an end with creative or spiritual directions you have been following. You may simply need to withdraw for a time and put minor health matters right. You may see clearly through someone or something that's been troubling you.

    A Full Moon on October 17th brings a Lunar Eclipse in Aries and your solar sixth house. A health matter may trouble your work schedule. There may be difficulty or change with a female at work. There may be an end of an association with someone at work or with a health practitioner. A health problem for someone in your domestic life may affect your working life. You may be tired and under par and need to look after yourself.

    2005 Scorpio Special Event Special Events Go to Top

    The big news for Scorpio is that Mars, your traditional ruler, turns retrograde in Taurus and your solar seventh house on October 1st. Thus, there may be a sting in the tail for the coming year. There may be changes or a review with partners or close associates. For some, money may be at the root of what's going on. For others, there could be sexual tension. Work on whatever is wrong. For some, a partner may strike out in a new path or direction or their long term effort may finally pay dividends. For others, there may be a feisty phase in a relationship. If things have been flagging with your loved one, make an effort to renew the feelings between you and also your understanding of one another.

    Some Scorpions may find themselves with a rival during this period. If this is so, it could be difficult to ascertain what's at the root of the feelings against you. Think deep. Be patient. You may encounter a will as stubborn as your own or attitudes as fixed as yours. Learn to give ground. Whether the issues are with a partner or a rival, talk through any cooperation problems and see if you can come to grips with the heart of the matter. Don't just hold out or determine to have things your way. Some Scorpions may have a contact or connection from the past come back into your lives.

    Retrograde Mars can bring feelings of impatience and even bad-temper. It can seem to block the path or obstruct effort. It's important to review your style of action in this period, especially in partnership matters and make change. Work towards important goals in a new and different manner. This cycle comes to an end on December 10th. There is an especially testing period for the first two weeks of November. Don't take risks or engage in untoward activity at this time.
