Scorpio Yearly Forecast for 2014

Painting by Gregory Morss

Pluto (Your ruling planet - rebirth, personal transformation and death) remains in Capricorn, your 3rd House of siblings, relatives and neighborhood matters. Short distance travel will also be highlighted throughout this slow but powerful transit. Expect these areas to transform in any number of ways. You might have upsets with neighbors, grow closer to siblings or move to a distant city. The possibilities are infinite under a Pluto transit, Scorpio. Think back to 2008 and see how this transit has impacted your relationship with siblings, your neighborhood/community, short distance travels and how you communicate. What has changed, Scorpio?

Mars - (Physical Energy/Motivation & Sexuality) your planetary co ruler) begins the year moving direct in your 12th House of solitude and deals with areas of confinement, self imposed or otherwise. Mars in Libra could bring about a strong desire for privacy, rest and/or can possibly shed light on things occurring in secret/meetings taking place behind closed doors. Mars turns retrograde on 3/1- 5/19. Mars is your co ruling planet, so you can find your physical energy/motivation to be especially weakened with Mars in retrograde motion. Don't be surprised if someone from your past reappears during this time. With Mars in your 12th House - an old friend, ex love or someone from long ago could emerge. During the Mars retrograde, don't rush, take your time when driving and avoid making any big or serious changes. Once Mars enters your sign on 7/25, you're in your element, Scorpio! Prepare to reap rewards, personally and professionally. Just be careful of coming across as impatient or bombastic. Utilize tact and exercise diplomacy whenever Mars transits your 1st of appearances, Scorpio, for ideal results.

Saturn (Structures/pressure) begins the year in Scorpio (Your 1st of physical appearance) and places a stern emphasis on pressure, service to others and puts extra responsibility onto your shoulders. Since Saturn is in your 1st House, you must be willing to walk that extra step, or at the very least, put in overtime where your most personal and professional relationships are concerned. With Saturn, you become reminded of hard work and diligent efforts you have made or not made in your past. Good deeds performed catch up with you, or if you have taken the easy way out in any regard, you will be reminded and might need to learn how to rebuild more solid structures where you have previously not done so.  Under the stern influence of Saturn, relationships with your parents can also become worrisome. You could be dealing with endings in many areas of your life throughout this 2.5 year transit that ends on 12/23. Under this Saturn cycle, you conclude who is important, who really cares and who might need to exit your life. Saturn in Scorpio will question your maturity and test your limits. On the work front, you could feel overloaded with assignments and feel as though there are not enough hours in the day to get your assignments done on time. Relationships (love, family and work) in general will posses a unusual amount of increased pressure.  

Jupiter (luck, expansion and good fortune) begins the year in Cancer, your 9th House of higher learning, spirituality and legalities) and remains there through 7/16. Jupiter enters Leo, your 10th House of authority figures, prestige and work/career matters from 7/16-8/11/15. During the first seven months of 2014, you experience expansion in overseas travel, via publishing and or while pursuing higher education. It all depends on what you desire and what you hope to achieve. Your biggest luck comes from this lucky planet that will tour through your 9th (Cancer) and 10th (Leo) Houses in 2014, Scorpio. 

Your ideal times for love in 2014 occur whenever the planet Venus transits a water sign element. For you that would be when Venus occupies Cancer (7/18 - 8/12), Scorpio (10/23 - 11/16) and Pisces (4/5 -5/2). During these dates, you're feeling upbeat, less stressed and notice others will be more drawn to you. These are great times/periods for single or coupled Scorpio. Couples can expect to get closer or make a serious commitment that is bound to last. Singles could meet a potential new love during these dates.

For you, Scorpio. It's a #6 personal year. The signs of Aries, Taurus and another Scorpio will be involved in your life this year. A Libra brings up fond memories of past times and attempts to tug at your heartstrings. Yes, Scorpio! This is your year to focus on health, performing service to others and taking that extra 10 minutes whenever and wherever possible to assist another. An Aries brings health issues to your attention. A Taurus wants to assist you with professional affairs while another Scorpio will be a loyal confidante or close friend that supports you unconditionally.
