Dec 22 - Jan 19
Click daily, weekly or monthly for your horoscope
This was always going to be an important month to pull back and to take a break from anything that has kept you busy, whether on the job front or anything in your daily life that keeps you busy and occupies your time. This is normally the case at this time every year, with a busy start levelling off to a pace that is easier to maintain. The difference this year is that the pace will pick up again from later next month, making it even more important to make the most of a slower pace in any area of your life. With four planets either turning retrograde or having just turned retrograde this month, this is contributing to a drop in urgency. Two of those planets are Pluto, who turned retrograde in your communication sector last month and Jupiter, who will turn retrograde here on 15th May. With the Sun spending the first three weeks of the month in your relationship sector and Mercury, the planet of communication there until 12th May, as well as a chance to give the past and unsaid words a voice, this will add to the support you already have to give your relationships a voice. Another of the planets turning retrograde is Venus, with the planet of money turning retrograde in your financial sector on 13th May, while Saturn will turn retrograde in your home and family sector on 11th May. This is a general call to pull back where you can, with multiple opportunities to spend time back at the drawing board. Meanwhile, while you have Venus in your financial sector all month, Mercury from 12th May and the Sun from 21st May, the lunar nodes will also return to your two money houses on 5th May. At the same time that the North Node returns to your financial sector in order to provide a sense of financial direction, the South Node will return to your income sector, with the focus on untapped income potential. Until January 2022, the lunar nodes will also police a balance between money coming in and money going out.
Week beginning Monday 25th of May 2020
There is a chance that you might suffer from a case of Mondayitis this week but you will soon find that there is nothing temporary about the playful and adventurous forces in play at the start of the week. The week begins with Mars aligned with the dwarf planet Ceres in a fun, playful, romantic and creatively charged part of your chart, which is giving you a better sense of where to channel the warrior planet's romantic and creative passions. It is the Moon's return to an adventurous part of your chart on Monday that will add an adventurous element and while it will leave on Wednesday, the first planetary activity for the year here begins just two days later. By the weekend, adventurous influences will be baked in as well. Yet this week not only gets off to a good start on the financial front, the second half of the working week is especially good for income, work and career matters.
Wednesday 27th of May 2020
While the Moon's return to your career sector today will get some push back from Saturn, who will lay down the law when it comes to work/life balance, this will happen in its early hours and then, message delivered it will be behind you. It is important not to dismiss the message because work/life balance is important, especially with the Moon returning to trigger what could be some of the best days of the month across the income, work and career fronts.
Scorpio is the eighth sign of the zodiac, traditionally ruled by the red planet Mars, who was the mythological Roman god of war and fertility.
Your sign is a steadfast, sensuous, deep feeling water sign and your symbol is the scorpion which has a paralysing, sometimes deadly, stinger at the end of its tail. This gets your sign some stingy bad press, but only from those who don't know your true scorpio ways.
Like your good self, scorpions are extremely resilient, they survive in a wide variety of habitats, including tropical forests, deserts and places of extreme temperatures. They move furtively on the ground and hide under leaves and rocks, or bury themselves in sandy soil.
A scorpion is tiny and will usually only sting to defend itself. If you were to corner a live one and poke it repeatedly with a stick, you might see it arch its tail across its back and literally sting itself to death. This little arachnid would rather commit suicide than allow anyone to torment or ridicule it. This says something profound about your profound sign.
You may be ruled by a red planet but it's unlikely to be the predominant colour in your wardrobe, although some attribute red to your sign. You usually incline towards smart blacks and midnight blues, you prefer to blend in. A real scorpion likes to hide, which is difficult in a bright red sweater!
Your sign is of fixed modality, which means that you have great tenacity and staying power in most situations but, like the scorpion, if you feel threatened or ridiculed in any situation, your natural impulse is to abruptly end it!
In modern day astrology, the rulership of your sign has also been assigned to the dwarf planet Pluto. This planet may be tiny but we should not underestimate it. Pluto rules atomic power!
With mighty Mars and power planet Pluto as your co-rulers, yours is the most deeply passionate sign. You feel things acutely and your feelings run deep, but your desire to stay hidden means that you rarely show the emotional storms and tempests when they happen within.
Your innate character is to be steadfast, trustworthy and loyal. You play your cards close to your chest and often leave others mystified. Your sign rules birth, death, sex, regeneration, transformation and all of our shared resources and secrets. You're one of the best at keeping secrets, especially your own!
Many Scorpios have strong psychic ability and others will become concerned with the psyche, to become hypnotherapists and psychotherapists. You are suited to a number of professions, we might find you working in a hospital or bank, at the butchers or in demolition. Whatever you do, you generally do with commitment.
You get along best with the other water signs, Cancer and Pisces and the earth signs of Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn, but this can be mitigated by the influence of other planets in your horoscope, particularly your ruling planet Mars.
If you don't know which sign Mars was transiting when you were born, or you'd like to know more about your horoscope, one of our astrologers will be pleased to help you.
