Scorpio - February 2019
Hi Scorpio! Mars is tackling your task list with gusto for the first two weeks in February, so there is hard work ahead! He likes to get things moving, hence any jobs which have been lingering into the new year will suddenly find themselves heading your priorities. This is a fantastic time to impress big bosses with demonstrations of your work ethic and no nonsense approach. A little turbulence is signified by Mars’s T square with the Moon’s nodes during this period; this will affect the way you communicate with colleagues. Your tendency is to be to the point and let people know exactly what you need, but you may find this isn’t working for you and a more conciliatory approach is necessary. There could also be some issues around work-related training, delays are likely and you may not feel you have been taught all the skills necessary to move forward. Health wise, take care of your head during this period, you may be more prone to injuries in this area. Headaches and eye problems could also arise.
Saturn continues to keep a tight rein on all things communication-related this month, hence you may struggle to relax when conversing with people you don’t know or in large-group interactions. It’s not the best of times for being in situations where casual, light-hearted conversation is necessary, as you won’t have time for those who don’t take their opinions seriously. Saturn and Mercury join together from the 18th to 27th in a helpful connection which will allow you to discuss creative ideas with conscientious others who can help you make your visions a reality. Neighbours or siblings may also need your support during this period, although their dismissive approach to their problems could irritate you! Watch out also for Venus’s passionate conjunction with Pluto here during these days, in which disputes with others in your everyday world could quickly become heated.
The new Moon of the 4th conjuncts Mercury from your family sector, and news from a relative is likely around this time. With Jupiter also influencing matters, a financial windfall connected to a family member or property might also be a pleasant surprise. Mercury in this area until the 10th makes this a busy time for family-related correspondence and it’s an excellent period for holding important discussions with, or about, relatives. Lilith is also conjunct Mercury from the 2nd to 8th, hence you are very likely to say exactly what you think and want! This can be a good thing, but don’t be surprised if it also shocks family members who don’t know you as well as they thought they did. You will probably find your home is busier with more people passing through. Influences from Uranus between the 5th and 10th might also cause temporary upheavals to domestic life, namely your living arrangements or routines, but this will soon pass.
The Sun brightens up your house of leisure and pleasure after the 19th, and this last ten days of the month are excellent for expressing your true self through work, interactions with friends and leisure activities. It could be quite a hedonistic time, in which you will possibly be rather self-absorbed. This is a necessary process in order that you can get back in touch with your inner self, but it does mean that you won’t have the vitality to spend too much time on other people’s issues. The full Moon of the 19th trines Mars from your house of friends, and will push you to focus on issues around one particular friendship which needs some forgiveness and healing energy. Enjoy your February!
