This is also the time to bring hot-blooded sexy back (not that it really ever went anywhere...). Getting in tune with your own body is the first step. Try a flowing dance class, or break out the feather boa and ostrich mules, giving a burlesque workshop a whirl. This solar-powered phase could also spark a creative renaissance. If you feel the urge to strum your guitar or set up your sewing machine, follow the muse. Making art for art's sake will unleash true genius.
Since the eighth house rules shared finances, your resourceful nature is in full bloom. Rather than buying everything yourself, you might adopt the Zipcar model, pooling funds with friends and sharing the goods. Start asking: "Who needs what?" Child care, a summer home, a steady diet of fresh greens…no matter what the objective, you are in a position to wave your magic wand and make it happen. Learning about investment opportunities could reveal new passive-income streams. Heck, even just thinking the words "passive income" could yield serious cash money, so great are your powers of manifestation. Got an inventive idea in the works? Someone may wish to invest dollars behind your dreams. Set up the Kickstarter page, or work on your presentation to funders. You never know, Scorpio.
The intensity ramps up a notch on Tuesday, as you may have to do triage on some important friendships and work connections. The "he said, she said" rumor mill could churn out of control, thanks to a challenging Pluto-Uranus square, threatening to break up some key alliances. Get the facts—and nothing but the facts—BEFORE you let your Scorpionic stinger loose. Secondhand accounts won't fly here. You may have to clear your good name, too, if you discover that someone misrepresented you in a major way (albeit innocently). Silver-lining alert: This tricky transit could prompt you to try some unconventional approaches at work. Give an out-of-the-box idea a whirl.
By the weekend, you might even find yourself celebrating, as Saturday's lunar eclipse in Sagittarius and your second house of income could bring a promising work opportunity. If you're on the job hunt, waiting to hear back from THAT company, send a polite follow-up message. Keep the vibe light…your application may have inadvertently fallen to the bottom of the pile. Gently remind them that you're still on the market and very interested.
Have you been tracking your spending? A hidden charge or unexpected expense could crop up, throwing you for a little fiscal loop. (Next time, put a money-minder app on your smartphone, like the uber-efficient Mint.com.) Whatever you do, don't freak out! This can all be negotiated, Scorpio, so charm your way into a payment plan. They might just cut you a deal. Speaking of deals, keep your eyes peeled for luxury steals. There's a dash of decadence with this eclipse, so if you've been saving your pennies, you could snag an incredible treasure at a below-market-value price. Score!
