In 2014, Scorpio has the golden opportunity to expand its mind through education. The horoscope shows that any training will help you elevate in your career. Foreign cultures will fascinate you, and any foreigner you meet can also help raise your status. This year’s expansion and luck in your career zone means you can be daring with your ambitions. This is a good year then, to push for higher wages or pitch your dream project. However, when your ruler Mars is retrograde in your 12th house from March 3 – June 1 that would be the ideal time to get away to those foreign shores and go on a retreat. Mars retrograde is literally a time to re-treat. Therefore this time period is also perfect for the studying already mentioned, especially if the subject matter itself is spiritual or involves inner work. The only danger this year is being pulled off course by tempting offers to escape. Try to avoid making glamorous but silly investments, for this year you are easily seduced.
Venus retrograde in your 3rd means relationships with the locals and your siblings are being evaluated. Is a neighbour getting too close for comfort? Do you need to distance yourself from an overly dependant brother or sister? The Jupiter Rx T square on February 24 will make you feel like escaping from all the local gossip and pettiness. You may dream of moving to a long distance utopia where the people seem more evolved and walk around like its Atlantis or something. Dream, dream, drea…m… Ouch, paper clip in back of head. Uranus in your 6th gives you a rude awakening when you realise you haven’t been keeping your eye on the ball with co-workers. There could be a bit of an upset here if dreams of a foreign savour have rubbed real life people up the wrong way. Still, this may give you the impetus you need to move away from the small-minded drones. That gloriously exotic 9th house Jupiter is just too juicy to resist right now.
Long Distance Utopia
The April 15 Lunar eclipse in your 12th house adds more fuel to the urge to run to fantasy island. But make sure you keep one foot on the ground as you step into this traditional house of self-undoing. You might end up looking rather foolish if you have left no sensible back up plan. Operation “Find my true life calling” while your ruler Mars is retrograde could mean all you come out with is 12th house sea mist and a band of unruly pirates. The temptation to turn one of those swarthy foreign beards into a long term partner might be strong when the April 29 Solar eclipse falls in your 7th house of marriage.. Venus in your 5th house at the same time only encourages more dewy-eyed smooching. Wait until Mars is direct on May 19 before you make a commitment. Your ruler Mars’s involvement with Persephone’s nodal wand could give you a surprise cash bonus at work on July 15. However if you have wanted to leave your daily grind for a while, this stellium could even represent a redundancy pay out. All those day-dreams may not have been in vain then. Just be sure to re-invest this money into your new career path and not splurge it on a month in the Maldives. (With the pirate…)
The Grand fire trine on October 6 falls in your career, work and cash sectors. Money and how you earn it is fired up for some healing. The October 8 Lunar Eclipse falls in your 6th house which points to having to let go of something connected with your daily life. Whether it’s travelling to your day job, running errands, chatting with a neighbour or simply spending too much time on facebook, something in your daily timetable needs urgent weeding! Re-organising your time will allow you to be able to make the cash flow better. After October you finally realise that time is money and quite a lot of this misspent time has actually been burning a hole in your pocket. The October 23 Solar Eclipse in your first house allows you to focus on your good self and your physical body. Maybe now you have found time to spend on a fitness program. This can only bring improved health and vitality to help you thrive in 2015.

Neptune trine your decan all year. You, out of all the decans, can really take advantage of the fantastic “Imagineering” that this aspect gives. The trine can bring powerful visions and heightened intuition to guide you through some of the pitfalls of 2014. Do remember that you will actually have to physically move things in your life too though. It’s easy to fall into the Neptune trine bubble of thinking that it will all come together by itself. You still have to put in the graft, but what this sweet transit will give you is great inspiration if you are already an artistic soul. If not and you are prone to escaping, there is a danger you might loose the whole of 2014 down the bottom of a vodka bottle (or whatever your poison is….)

Jupiter square your decan July 1 – October 30 will serve to inflate your confidence, but at least now Mars is safely direct.

Thank god for sensible Saturn, as he will give you a massive great anchor with a very long chain to make sure you do actually come home. One thing Saturn could also do until May is put you in hermit mode, so you may feel like the lone traveler for a while. This is good because it will allow you to find out who you really are if it has been your intention to go “find yourself”. You are now on a mission of taking responsibility for your life and very serious about where you want to see yourself in 10 years time.

Birthdays November 12 – 22 Ascendants 20º -30º Scorpio.
You start the year with easygoing trines from two sexy and spiritual cosmic bodies with Black Moon Lilith trine your decan January 1 – March 10 and later Jupiter trine your decan May 28 – July 19. You have a small window of opportunity for Jupiter to serve you up some cosmic slap-up fun. Relationships and your social life should be enjoyable, and there will be many opportunities to make new friends and influence people. If you need to arrange any parties or social events, best do them before party-pooper Saturn comes into your decan from October. The best time obviously would be while Jupiter is still happy, clappy in his trine aspect.
Black Moon Lilith square your decan August 27 – December 3 may be preparing you for the coming Saturn examination. Lilith will test your patience with societies limiting conventions. You may feel hemmed in by parental or your peers belief systems and your own values will be questioned. At the same time Mars conjunct your decan August 29 – September 14 will make sure you don’t put up with any bigoted or ignorant behaviour for very long. You will not tolerate injustice during this time, and may take up arms in defending the innocent. If you yourself have been bullied then this is the moment when the worm turns. Deep in your soul you know an upgrade is coming. You know you need to develop a backbone of steel with the arrival of….da..da.. Saturn conjunct your decan from October. This is when you have to face the fact you will need to grow up pretty fast. The general theme of the year has been spiritual growth and bettering oneself through education. Saturn here will demand that you do more than lounge around on a beach reading self-help books. He will put what you have learnt to the test and insist you come out of this journey of self-discovery with a rock solid qualification. If you have decided to pursue some weirdo alternative mystic career, then Saturn will nudge you to construct a website to give it some form. But if you do have the urge to try play the Fool card in the tarot, then Saturn may throw ten tons of heavy responsibility at you so you can’t travel lightly. Suddenly all your domestic appliances break down, so you can’t afford to do that shamanic goat-whispering course in Bali. Darn it! Or you could feel rather lonely while all your footloose friends are at the summer festivals and you have to look after a sick relative. Relationships can suffer too as all manner of limitations are being placed on you. Maybe it’s financial constraints, so bang goes the indulgent meal out or weekend away. A shallow relationship may end if your partner was a bit of a gold digger. Jupiter square your decan from October. Luckily you will have Jupiter rewarding your Saturnian hard graft in the end. Now he is in your 10th house too, so an elevation in status looks like it’s in the bag. Yes, sacrifices have had to be made in relationships for the sake of your career. Maybe you have had to fund a college degree, but the Saturn/Jupiter influence will serve you very well in the long term. It’s all about deferred gratification and holding the vision of your dreams strong in your head. Mars sextile your decan November 21 – December 5 is a great window of energy to push your Saturn/Jupiter juggernaut of success forward.
