Scorpio: The Scorpion
Scorpio: The Scorpion
For the week of Monday, March 12, 2012
Well done, Scorpio! You’re still ALIVE. That may be an understatement but I digress and you know why. Not all signs are as strong and powerful as you and for good reason: they’d die if they’d gone through what we have but all that’s just about over! Just a few more irons to pull out of the fire and none too hot for powerful Scorpio to handle bare handed, if need be. Somehow we are made of titanium and I don’t know where my resolve comes from because sometimes…taking someone out for a Chicago ride would be so much easier and even more fun. Just a little macabre humor that only we Scorpions would appreciate, eh? EH? Alright. We move forward and take no prisoners but we certainly don’t entertain other people’s bullshit or nonsense. We just steamroll right over it! Get your steamroller engines ready, that’s what I’m talking about.
There’s the usual Mercury Retrograde present and we know how to deal with that by now. But, to temper that and ease it, anyway, there’s the BEST formation of planets possible in the sky right now and it’s called a Grand Trine, also called a Golden Trine, but there are several planets aligned just for you in the first three weeks of March and its effects will last a very long time. Including in this triangle of planets are Venus, Jupiter, Mars, Pluto. The Full Moon of March 8th should have shown you something special even an indication of what direction your current challenges are taking. Something of a surprise may have come to your attention and has also shown you what’s going to change or provided some piece to your personal puzzle right now. This will be the best period you could ask for, believe it or not, as it will help you solve a current, even long standing dilemma. Trust me, things ARE going to get better and you have a load of cosmic help right now and things are going to work out in your favor and to your advantage. I know, it’s hard to believe but just trust me on this! Your three houses affected in such a great way are your seventh house of commitment and partners (Venus and Jupiter — wow!), and your eleventh house of dreams, hopes, wishes, and friends (Mars and Moon), and your third house of contracts and agreements, promises, travel (surprised? Pluto!) holding court and helping YOU get what needs to be done, DONE! YOU can do this, Scorpio! You have all the help you need, so ASK. You may have to make your case but you can do this! You have all the ammo and information you need now thanks to that Full Moon on the 8th!
Mars and Pluto, your two rulers (you have TWO) are entwined in this Grand Trine to your benefit and they are in good form. Tomorrow, or today, rather, they are very happy to help you and you will find support in many areas and something you’ve been working on for a long time is close to completion — something you’ve wanted for a long time, possibly YEARS. We just had, on March 12th, Jupiter and Pluto dancing nicely and playing fair on this day which won’t happen again for years. I hope you are taking advantage of all things possible because this is a rare time, indeed.
Money is the matter and this is no small potato type money — this is some kind of talk about big money, big investments, big relief, or big reprieve. Whatever it is, think BIG. It’s about money and it could be about loans and other credit or funding. You will have much chance to correct what’s going on and even to get a big loan that you need right now to settle something or make something work that’s not been working for some time. You may have heard or soon hear that the money you need or financing you seek is underway. You’ve been dealing with such a crappy set of situations that you may not believe me but please do! You’ll feel so good about this, very soon, that the effects will last a long, long time.
Mercury Retrogrades from March 12th to April 4th but the Grand Trine will ease things and the usual delays and problems with communications will not bother you very much at all. The Grand Trine is so helpful to you that nothing much can go wrong, just handle things the way you normally would during this kind of phase and you’ll be okay. The Full Moon will help you very much now and you have all you need to get this thing DONE.
As usual, do not sign any agreements now, try to hold off for a time, don’t make any decisions that you’ve not already thought out. Consider all the usual things that go wrong during this Mercury Retrograde phase but also do not over think things because you already know what you’re doing. If you are in talks about a new job only accept and sign if this is something you have FOR SURE been working on for a while, long before the Retrograde. You can talk, plan, negotiate, but please wait until mid April, at best. If for some reason you cannot wait, well, you know how it goes and things will change, not be what you expected, there will be things to sort and iron out. You know what to do.
Someone you know may be of great assistance to you now so watch for friends you haven’t heard from in a while and listen if they bring news to you about some new opportunity or job. Something new is attached to this person and it’s likely someone you know well. You will love this person’s idea and will be happy to hear what they have to say. Just listen carefully as you will likely love to hear from them, something they tell you about that could help you, and it will certainly inspire you!
You may get some good new from a relationship that will benefit you soon. Your partner will be happy to help you, also, and will be generous with you. It seems the more money they make the more they want to help you and share with you for all the good you’ve done them. Be sure to say thank you and to embrace this period where it’s totally okay to let that person show you how much they love and care for you. Plenty of Scorpions have found their love match, the love of their lives (I know I have!) and are in for an exciting period that will have a honeymoon effect for about 14 years — that’s one hell of a honeymoon! — and for those looking for love the aspects could not be more sweet! There’s someone out there for Scorpio singles and they will find themselves in much demand for everyone knows that Scorpio is not only a good and true friend, they are amazing company to keep.
If you’re on a fitness or health improvement bend, then please go to it! This is the right time for weight loss issues, smoking cessation, curbing drink and other excess, and cutting it out of your life. DO please get yourselves ready for spring because you love spring and summer so much you don’t want to feel like a train wreck when the days warm and the sun shines just for you. We all need to get our health stabilized and in good order long before October when there is possibility of health challenge — but don’t over-focus on that either, please? Just get yourself together and take care of what needs to be taken care of — this is the time to do this.
Contemplate: Scorpio, you’ve been through a lot and less than what you know how to endure would kill a person and flatten an elephant on the spot. Those days are soon over — you’ve done the work without complaint — and you know your time is coming soon. Something of great importance is almost settled and it seems to involve something contractual, a negotiation, there seems to be an element of dispute, too, so you may have had to hire legal counsel. With Mercury Retrograde you’d usually be advised to sign nothing, now, if you have to sign something because there’s no choice or it’s in your best interest to get something done, go ahead, the Grand Trine will help you, and it should all work well for you in the long run. Do get your health in order and that is an order from Dr. Rita! I mean that! And LONG before October! Health issues should be easy to resolve as are addiction and weight loss. YOU CAN DO IT and you can do it like no one else CAN! GOD BLESS YOU! You’re time’s here, my friends!
For the week of Monday, March 5, 2012
Like Cancer and Libra, Scorpio follows suit. You may wonder why someone would be critical or even cruel of you and though you’re not one to worry or wonder about what anyone thinks of you, you’re the natural psychologist of the zodiac, Scorpio: you wonder why people think the way they do. But, even as interesting as that may be to you, have you thought about the time you’re wasting wondering about what the next person thinks of you at all? Clearly, if someone doesn’t like you, they don’t, and there are few who don’t like you, anyway. Conversely, if someone decides they don’t like you, they could not possibly be your friend, you see? If anyone has decided to dislike you — even immensely — turn off your inner shrink and stop wondering what’s wrong with them: you already know. I wrote on Facebook earlier today to the effect that “mean people suck” — well, they do! You’re not a mean spirited person and mean spirited people intrigue you more than any other type of person because you just don’t understand why they waste their time being negative, as positive as you are about others. But with so much good happening to you, so many good things coming to you from every direction, it should be clear you’ve no room for negativity from others. Next time the thought comes to you and you wonder why someone’s being mean, cruel, or even hateful, consider they are mean, cruel, and hateful — and that you, of all people, are always right. Don’t fret thinking you’re passing judgment on another: people are who they present themselves to be and nothing more. The person or persons in question right now are no one that matters to you, not really, that’s if you know them at all: that should be your final indicator that there is no value thinking of them in any way other than to say, “whatever”.
Contemplate: Like Cancer and Libra, what the next person says about you, no matter how stupid, unreal, or cruel it could be, doesn’t matter, so like Libra, wipe from front to back, drop it in the toilet and flush!
For the week of Monday, February 6, 2012
This week brings a time of closure for you, dear Scorpio, and on many levels. The energy has been erratic of late and this is not comfortable for you. You prefer constant and little by way of unpredictable so the energy has had you more than a little annoyed. Take heart, little Scorpion, a transition is coming, too. The finality and closure comes in the areas of agreement and settlement, conclusions after discussions with partners, partnerships, spouses, etc., and there could be a new kind of commitment to common goals that would suit you better. Sharing responsibilities in a cooperative and mutually beneficial way should ease some of the previous emphasis on imbalance that has been unnerving you. Your chart’s sector of home, family, living arrangements, and cooperative effort is lit for you and this is quite an active area of your chart now. Be sure all is delineated and leave nothing tabled: solve it all before moving forward and think, “concretize.” The erratic energy around you will soon subside and you will find peace and balance again. Be sure to make needs clear and express yourself lest misunderstanding present. Allow these communications to flow while the erratic influences settle themselves. Patience is key now. The complexity here is that you feel a sense of entrapment and limitation which is merely illusion: even a scorpion under a cup soon finds means to tip it over and free itself. You are a highly intuitive soul, Scorpio, the natural psychic and psychologist of the zodiac, comfortable with birth, death, rebirth, and death again, so anything that must die and be cut off comes naturally to you to do. This again is centered in your chart area of house and home, family structure and concern and when this area is out of balance you are prone to cutting dead wood as well as new growth: again, this is where discernment and patience are key. Use your intuition to discern and decipher others as you well are equipped to do before scrapping an entire plan. Even the cupped scorpion plans and exit but not without safe passage. This is a shift that must take place within you no matter how daunting a task. You need emotional security and a sense of safety but you seek them within yourself before relying on others. In this sense, you are full aware that you are strong enough to take action and free yourself from your binding. Of course, there is sadness when there is an ending but the ending need not be sad itself: change is good and endings bring change. Perhaps you’ve changed your mind about a goal, a relationship, a direction in life and that change of mind will also affect others. But you are to live your life as you’ve earned it, Scorpio, not as it is dictated for you. Again, the previous new moon end last month was in your home and family area of chart. You are more closely connected to family and the binds that tie you which are yours and yours alone. Recent events have left you introspective, pensive, and thinking more deeply about your needs and how to meet them. You are more able to see current situations and interactions with others closely tied to the home and personal life, relationships romantic and familial, and are examining whether these same meet your needs or need to be changed or altered in some way, perhaps ended. Others’ impact on your life are paramount now and you have met limitations that led to seeking more answers than you’ve been given. Mars, your co ruler, is retrograde in your chart area of other people, society, and the future now hence your tendency to go within yourself to seek the answers you need. The full moon tomorrow that also includes a retrograde Saturn, means you wish a new identity for yourself due to the sense of limitation you’ve experienced. Some people see these limitations as literal imprisonment though you are not necessary in jail or caged. You see the correlation: limitations, sense of limitation, sense of feeling trapped. You feel that this is the edge of something you are trying to define but the parameters will not yet be defined at this time and there is no doubt you may feel as if you are trudging ahead with changes wearing a blind. Take heart that you can see through this even if you feel blindfolded or otherwise not being given all the information or the facts, as they are. Take time to continue the process of seeking answers within yourself as there are no answers others can provide to you. Don’t let the sensation overcome you too long that nothing but obstacles continue to present themselves, please. Understand that the challenges and obstacles themselves provide insight into the past mistakes, failures, and yes, successes, so that you can better understand how to avoid pit falls and peril in future. It’s not a bad complexity, Scorpio, you are well equipped to know what to do next — blindfold or not. God bless.
Contemplate: The complexity of paradox is yours, Scorpio. Consider the scorpion under the glass does not make a move without knowing where it’s going next.

Scorpio friend, you know what you have to do in fact, you know what you have to do all the time and sometimes this really brings you down because you feel the weight of the world on your shoulders. But what better weight to carry but your own, Scorpio? You don’t very much like carrying the weight of everyone else on your back. It’s not that you don’t like to help, in fact, you love helping so that…others can help themselves! Right now you’re dealing with a complex problem and much like Taurus, you need to not over-think this problem, situation, relationship, or whatever it is that’s on your mind. Think like this: problem? Solution. Challenge? Solution. You see what I mean? Don’t let the problems you are dealing with take up all of your resources while you are solving them. Focus on the solution, not the problem itself.
You may have been dealing with criticism for the decisions you have made recently when really, there was little choice in the matter as you saw it. You had to do what you had to do and there is no more to say about that. Maybe you were a little cantankerous in the process but that’s your nature, Scorpio, so don’t worry what others think of how you handled one particularly stressful situation. In relationships, there was a stalemate for weeks and you lost your patience and took action. What’s wrong with that? If nothing’s happening sometimes it’s better to shake things up to get ANYTHING to happen. If things worked out for you, I’m glad, because there was so much potential for chaos. It looks to me from my vantage point that all Scorpions fared reasonably well this last period before the new moon. This period was significant for you because you have been dealing with, very like, old patterns, behaviors, tendencies, and even dysfunction within yourself. If more patterns come up, deal with them immediately as you have the new moon of the 22nd giving you a fresh start and a boost of new energy to work for you. The rewards that will come now have everything to do with the fact that you did not deny many realities, rather, you faced them head on and decided what needed to change, even if what you changed was the inertia you were dealing with.
The universe is talking to you, Scorpio, and it’s reminding you to stay on task in regard to identifying patterns and behaviors, those of yours and others, that you wish to change and don’t want to deal with in others. My best advice to you, dear Scorpio, is to remain as honest with yourself as possible, you usually are brutally honest, and don’t bother with the rose-colored glasses: they don’t suit your pretty face, anyway. Be realistic, forget the past, and remember that the good things in life come to those who earn them, those who do the work and always did, and you will see what I mean, shortly. If you’ve been working hard on yourself and living righteously, you will see amazing things, beyond your wildest dreams, manifest right in your FACE. Be glad, Scorpio, you’re well known to be the very person who will rock the boat, call wrong when you see it, do no harm to others, and you will soon see, Scorpio, you soon will see.
Contemplate: If you’ve been doing the work, if you’ve caused no harm intentionally to others, there is no karma to pay. Enjoy what comes to you now!

Dear Scorpion, is your mind filled with many pressing things? It does seem that the days fly by for you from one new moon to the full and time may as well be something that flies in the door and out the window. While you’re a perfectionist and you do have serious time constraints, you remain aware you can do it all, get it done, and call it good — so long as you don’t drop dead! You’re just a little tired. You learned in November that opportunity waits for no one and sometimes the windows of opportunity may as well be mail slots. You also learned there are few who are as eager to help you as they are eager to help themselves. You know how this goes! Though this learning curve would be overwhelming to most others, you calmly put responsibility first and require others to take responsibility for themselves — but that’s not easing your schedule Scorpio, is it? While dealing with the mounting pressures you are going to have to keep from feeling too much pressure which sounds impossible. While sorting out the remnants of the fabric of your life, bear in mind that not all others are as organized as even their thoughts! You may need a pick me up from a friend that admire and trust — one who has always been with you over the course of the years.
Contemplate: The best is yet to come so hang in there, Scorpio!

Last week, I asked you to dream big, mighty Scorpion, and dream HUGE is what you did! I’m very proud of you for taking your dreams to the next level! Previously, you thought (for just a moment) that what you wanted to realize, what you wanted to bring from fantasy to reality, was much too huge an undertaking, that you might not be able to accomplish it. But BRAVO, Scorpio! You proved to yourself that you could do it and do it you WOULD. What you’ve begun must continue to be pushed forward and while you’re great at going at it alone, would it not be even more helpful to accept help being offered to you? While that’s not your usual way, you do know how to accept help when you remember how many countless others you’ve helped before. Perhaps someone on your mind, someone offering help or someone whose help you’d like, isn’t exactly the person you find easiest to deal with and maybe that’s what’s causing you to wonder if it’s a good idea at all. Go ahead! Accept any and all offers for help that make sense. Really, little Scorpion, it’s not always that too many chefs spoil the pot, in fact, it’s much more pleasant to allow others to help with tasks and things that would free you up a bit so you can continue to manifest what you wish! Don’t worry so much about feeling like you’re taking someone’s time, resources, or placing burden on them: if they didn’t want to help they’d not offer! Scorpio is one of the few signs who truly keeps track of every kindness shown to them, despite the myth that Scorpio only remembers and holds grudges. In that sense, while you tell others you never forget their kindness, you can help others pay you forward a bit by helping YOU. You’ve earned a lot of positive karma and should remember that by allowing others to help you when they offer they are giving you something back: a thank you for all you’ve done for them. Go ahead and smile when people rally to help and support you, Scorpio: you’ve earned it and they would like to say THANK YOU!
Contemplate: Take a little bow — pat yourself on the back — and please DO allow others to help you: they want to say thanks for all the love you’ve shown them! And that’s okay!

The full moon in Cancer is asking you a question, Scorpio, it is asking you to dream. What is the stuff of dreams? Certainly dreams are fantasy but that’s where anything we wish for, wants most, desire, manifest, hint at us, tug at our conscious, waking life. When we awake from a beautiful dream we often forget what made us feel good about it slip away in the light of the sun and reason, reality and logic. Scorpio, the full moon is begging you to dream in your waking life — and to dream BIG. VERY BIG. You know exactly what I’m talking about, of course, though you aren’t prone to much flight of fancy. But this time, for once in your life, you are urged to dream and to take those dreams to the next level: CREATE REALITY FROM DREAM. You may feel that there’s no way you can do anything on the level you are thinking and that is NOT the way I want you to think right now. You, of all people, know that anything is possible as you’ve seen miracles in your life right in front of your face. Scorpio, your gut is as good as gold — no, PLATINUM — and there has been no better time in your life to rely on it because you are right on the money even more right to kick aside any self doubt. The full moon is talking to you directly, urging you to blend fantasy with reality, literally pushing you forward even though you feel the pace is too fast. It’s not: the pace is exactly what you like, you like challenge, you like a sense of urgency, a sense of competition! And right now there’s no competition around you, Scorpio, because you are the best and you know it. You’ve recently made concrete decision and even late last year you knew that your moment was coming: you could feel it, sense it, taste it, smell it…and that feeling was REAL enough! How do you think motion pictures make their way from mind to screen? SOMEONE HAD A DREAM AND USUALLY A VERY BIG ONE. Someone thought of a story. Someone was bothered and troubled, pulled and tortured by something in their mind that was too real to ignore. Perhaps you’re not writing a screen play, but perhaps you are! The creative is being called forth here and all creative lies in the realm of FANTASY. Perhaps you are writing a book. Perhaps you’d like to marry and see the opportunity in front of you, a dream, so close, so close. Perhaps you have a goal to dream bigger because you FEEL something that you recognize! It’s called BRILLIANCE. That is you now, dear Scorpio, completely brilliant, completely ready! TAKE ACTION! DREAM BIG. PUSH THE DREAMWORLD FORWARD AND MAKE IT REALITY. It’s YOUR time, Scorpio, but time waits for no one. What you wish to be, will be, but it will take your determination and might I add, who better than you to make dreams come true?
Contemplate: Your dreams come true so dream BIG — and BIGGER
