A Fixed Water Sign - Eighth Sign of the Zodiac - Ruled by the planets Mars and Pluto
OCTOBER 24 – NOVEMBER 22
2010 PROSPECTS FOR SCORPIO
Deal with material pressures and rising costs until June, and then turn attention to your private hopes and personal projects.
THE YEAR AHEAD
Discretion is the better part of valour. Those things which you feel are going to be important to you in the long term are being kept under wraps at present. You may be taking up a new activity in April, which you will be slow to reveal to those around you. You will be keeping your broader hopes and ambitions secret for the moment. A harmonious set of planetary patterns indicates that your morale is high and you are thinking big over the summer. Meanwhile, it may be that you are able to shed some light on a situation which has been baffling other people. Get fixtures and fittings repaired in November – before it’s too late.
LOVE AND ROMANCE
You’re in a secretive mood and feeling like withholding information even from close partners. In an attempt to escape complications elsewhere in your life you may throw your energies into social or romantic escapades, but partners can all too easily feel neglected if you spread affections too thinly. So, if you want to avoid personal upsets, make time to soothe troubled brows at home. July could be a sticky month, especially if you’re straining at the leash, battling against unfair restrictions. You will soon get over it, though, and will be in an even better position to cherish the best that love can offer.
KEY DATE: You will get the better of a personal partnership in October – and everyone should benefit.
CAREER AND MONEY
You should be on top form, thanks to your own efforts as much as to any good fortune that fate is bringing your way. This is not the year to wait at home for the phone to ring, hoping that other people will contact you. You must seize the initiative and arrange money-making activities and professional meetings. It may seem obvious to say that this will be an expensive time of year, but with up to eight planets in your second, financial, house, you will discover that hidden costs are due to escalate. Romantic hopes may call you away from home before long.
HOME AND FAMILY
It may seem more difficult than usual to make yourself understood, at least until February arrives. Even after then relations and other people you live with will seem curiously determined to misinterpret the most simple requests and proposals. So what’s new? Well, by April you should be ready to rouse yourself, seize control of the situation and impose your will in your gentle but uncompromising manner. In the meantime, please tackle practical issues and leave emotional complications to look after themselves. By September, even if you are in a settled relationship you will be having decidedly pleasant and refreshing encounters.
You must not expect your hopes and wishes to be instantly fulfilled. Reckless expectations will damage your prospects.
TIP FOR THE YEAR
Life is not a rehearsal – so give it your all.
