LOVE & RELATIONSHIPS
A year of growth is ahead for your love life, Scorpio, one that already started last year. In June 2011, expansive Jupiter began a yearlong visit to Taurus, your committed-relationship sign. Jupiter will remain here until June 11, 2012. During this time, coupled Scorpios could grow closer than ever to their mates, taking next steps like moving in together, talking babies, starting a family business or renewing vows. Some relationships will run their course, and you may part ways to move on to a better match. Single Scorpios could fall for someone different than their usual “type.” Since Jupiter rules cross-cultural harmony and travel, you could end up in a long-distance relationship or with someone who woos you with a sexy accent!
In June, Jupiter moves into Gemini, your eighth house of intimacy and permanent bonding, for a year. This is when relationships can get even more serious. Engagements, pregnancies, divorces, joint finances — all of these big rites of passage fall into the realm of the eighth house. Two change-making Gemini eclipses on May 20 and November 28 could push you even further into making things official (or officially over). If you’re part of a couple, you may be dealing with shared finances quite a bit, looking for creative new ways you can save for the future, invest, buy property or manage your money together. Couples splitting up may be embroiled in a lot of details as they figure out how to divide up assets. Single Scorpios, you may want to get into a deeper exploration of your sensual desires, as the sexy eighth house gets you in touch with your passions again.
Meanwhile, how about a little more romance? On February 3, dreamy Neptune begins a long visit (until 2026) to Pisces, your fifth house of love, creativity and fertility. A pregnancy is possible this year (Jupiter in the eighth house also encourages this). You may become softer and more emotionally expressive, less guarded about your feelings. A little more openheartedness will do you good, Scorpio!
In the fall, you start learning how to stand on your own feet in new ways when structured Saturn begins a two-year visit to Scorpio. Saturn reshapes our entire view of ourselves, sometimes in ways that can be challenging at first. The end result, though, will be a stronger, wiser and more self-sufficient Scorpio, which you’re becoming between October 3, 2012, and 2015. This will ultimately make you a better partner, because you’ll have such a solid sense of who you are inside and out. A Scorpio solar eclipse on November 13 could set you on a brand-new path — one you never even expected. Prepare for an adventure!
WORK & MONEY
Two is your magic number for the first half of 2012, while lucky Jupiter visits Taurus, your partnership house. Although you like things done your way and on your terms, you might just find a kindred spirit who can convince you to loosen that ironclad grip. A long-distance client or collaborator with complementary skills could appear, or you may decide to join forces with an agent or representative.
On June 11, Jupiter moves into Gemini, your eighth house of shared resources and joint finances. You may decide to make things more official with a business or romantic partner, perhaps investing in something that you jointly own. Since Jupiter is all about taking bold risks (but can also be a gambler), you may bring in a large amount of money, or perhaps you’ll come into wealth through a marriage or partnership. You may also decide to pay down a chunk of debt, or to sell off some property due to a breakup or a need to financially reorganize. The eighth house is about “other people’s money” — such as loans, taxes, investments, grants, credit cards, inheritances and legal settlements — and you could be dealing with any of these financial issues between June 2012 and June 2013.
Since December 2010, a series of eclipses on the Gemini/Sagittarius axis has been reshaping your approach to finances overall. Eclipse are change makers that sweep away outmoded behaviors and usher in distinctive new habits, lifestyles and characters. On May 20, a Gemini solar eclipse could bring a partnership opportunity that builds up over six months, peaking at the November 28 Gemini lunar eclipse. Looking for a new line of work or income source? Stay tuned at the Sagittarius lunar eclipse on June 4, which spotlights your second house of daily cash flow. You may leave one line of work for another or be offered an exciting new job — perhaps out of the blue.
Still haven’t found your true path? Don’t despair, Scorpio. On October 3, structured Saturn begins a two-year visit to your sign, putting you on a disciplined reinvention tour that will shape the next 30 years of your life. A solo venture or personal project is demanding your dedicated attention now. Saturn is the zodiac’s personal trainer, so you may need to do some serious “reps” — and sweat out a few tough spots — before you graduate from this boot camp in 2015. It will be well worth the effort, Scorpio, so hang in there and do the hard work. You’re figuring out who you are and what mark you want to leave behind on the world, and this isn’t an overnight process. Fortunately, you’ll have a boost from the November 13 Scorpio new moon, which is also a solar eclipse. You may decide to travel a new path, make over your entire image, or break out on your own. Saturn will form a harmonious “sextile” angle to dreamy Neptune in your expressive fifth house. You may decide to pursue a creative talent or take on a more public role in the last quarter of 2012.
HEALTH: MIND, BODY & SOUL
Since October 2009, you’ve been doing some tough emotional and spiritual work, and it hasn’t always been easy. Disciplined Saturn, the planet of maturity, has been in Libra, your 12th house of closure and healing. Saturn will remain here until October 3, 2012, urging you to reckon with some of those personal “demons” — codependence, addiction, control issues — and really overturn them for good. In the past couple of years, you may have dealt with a loss or perhaps struggled with some complicated emotional challenges. If so, the remainder of this period would be a good time for therapy or deeper spiritual development. You Scorpios tend to try to carry the world on your own shoulders. Yet handing it over to the universe, a higher power, a guardian angel — whatever your version of divinity may be — can provide comfort and relief like you’ve never known before. Even just swallowing your pride and asking another human being for help (and allowing the divine to work through them) could make a huge difference. Yes, you’ll feel vulnerable at first, but you’ll also have the security of knowing that you’re not alone, and never have to be. Don’t bottle up those feelings and repress them, Scorpio. Find as many trusted sources as you can and open your heart.
Bored with your workout routine? Mix it up! Innovative Uranus is in Aries, your health-and-fitness house, until 2018. You may become fascinated by cutting-edge exercise routines, supplements, eating programs and the like. Scorpios can be healthy eaters to begin with, and during this time, you might go even deeper into the raw/macrobiotic/vegan or beyond. Uranus rules science and technology, so you might just geek out learning about biodynamic farming, sustainable living or the composition of your food.
