The Scorpion

With Scorpio as your Sun Sign

With the Sun in the fixed water sign of Scorpio, your emotional levels are deep and intense, although you can cover up your own sensitive and powerful feelings with an air of calm and indifferent; as such people find it very hard to read your character. Your willpower is strong, and you will not be easily swayed from your goals or ideals; in fact opposition is likely to merely strengthen your resistance even when a change of attitude would be appropriate. You have a deep sense of the inevitability of death, change and transformation, but you find it difficult to understand why life can allow so much pain and suffering in the world. You are fascinated by knowledge that may be termed occult, by mysteries, the unknown & the unexplained & you may have a deep distrust in life and in other people. Although you do value your own independence very highly, you can be very jealous and possessive if a partner's independence threatens your own personal security.

With Scorpio as your Ascendant

With the fixed water sign of Scorpio rising at the time of your birth, you have an intense approach to life, with a desire to get to the root of any issue so that you can understand it from the bottom up.  While you are sensitive to the emotional atmosphere around you, you will tend to keep your own emotions behind a barrier to protect them; you will be secretive and will questions every action asked of you. Those emotions can remain under the surface until the pressure becomes too great and the repressed energy is released in a burst of anger, or by some action that expresses unmistakably how you feel. There may be periods in your life when you will willingly, or by force of circumstances, remove all the old structures in your life to make way for the growth of something new. Like a snake that sheds its skin, the death of the old life makes way for the development of something more fulfilling, although these periods will not be without accompanying pain.

As a person you will have excellent organisational and leadership powers, however you should be careful of your ability to dominate others, as this power can turn to obsession making you very autocratic and potentially power mad. You need to know yourself, and will constantly self-analyse without telling others and this can lead to a certain introspection and worry. In partnerships, you are warm, loving but private and your emotional security will be very important to you. There is a tendency to suffocate your partner which can be very trying to your other half.

Scorpio is ruled by Pluto. As the ruler of your Ascendant, this planet is of particular importance in your chart.

January 2018 for Scorpio Ascendant

These predictions have been written to fit your Ascendant sign, and that is dependent not only on the day your were born but also the time that you were born as well as the place of your birth.

Ok, so Scorpio ascendants, what does 2018 hold in store for you? Well it's natural to starting with the outer planets and how they are affecting you in general and this is a summary of where they are moving before I move on to a more detailed chronological look at the year ahead.


Overview - The Sun and Venus are in Capricorn as we start this year and Mercury joins them in this sign on 11th January and you'll be concentrating on local issues and matters of communicating with people. Between 18th and 20th January both the Sun and Venus shift into Aquarius and this will coincide with you being more preoccupied with family and domestic affairs. Mercury follows on behind moving into Aquarius on the last day of the month.

The movements of Mars are important as they indicate what actions we are motivated to make, and at the beginning of 2018 we find the red planet with Jupiter in your Ascendant house. You'll be in a very self-confident mood, outspoken, confident and determined to succeed at the expense of the needs of others on 8th January as Jupiter makes a conjunction with Mars. There is a definite sense of selfishness in this conjunction and you should try to guard against it, and try to be a little more considerate of the needs of others.

There is a sextile on the 17th January between Jupiter and Pluto and through there is an opportunity to send out a powerful message out far and wide to many people, indeed communications of all sorts can be the agents of change to expand and update your life now. This is an aspect through which you can chance the relationship that you have with neighbours, being more open and welcoming to them, or if you need a favour maybe you can persuade them to assist you; the same goes for brothers and sisters that you have. A particular journey that you make could be influential for the future, as will be your ability to turn any situation to your advantage.

On the 17th January there is a quincunx between Mars and Uranus, and this may see you having to adjust your ideas quite sharply in regard to a work colleague, boss or health related matter that comes up out of the blue. You may be frustrated that you can't get on with your life as normal, however try not to express too much open disappointment as this may play against your reputation and how others regard you in the future.

Mars moves into Sagittarius on the 26th and the focus will shift towards dealing with financial issues, how you spend and use your money, business dealings, your possessions and what you value and your self worth. You will feel in an entrepreneurial mood to create opportunities to earn money, however you may also be impulsive in what you buy and in how you spend. To yourself and apparent to others, you will now tend to identify yourself in material terms rather than in personal ones. You may get into disputes over who owns something.

On the 31st January we have the first of five eclipses this year, a lunar eclipse in Leo to start things off. This eclipse will highlight matters of your work and career, your relationship to your boss and to senior people in your life such as your parents. This part of your chart highlights your public reputation and how the general public views you, and these areas of life may be subject to change in the first half of 2018
