Saturn moves into your 3rd house of connections and study in your Scorpio Horoscope 2018. Sometimes, the only way to get a broken machine working again is to take it apart and reassemble it again from scratch. Of course while your brain is having this maintenance work done, others may perceive in you a kind of vacantness. After the changes have occurred, you could notice that your communications with neighbours or relatives suffer in the transition, as they are used to your old way of thinking.
The Jan 31 Lunar Eclipse falls in your 10 house of status and the mother. Hard workers may be constantly trying to prove themselves to an authority figure. It all depends on your own relationship to your primary care-giver and how they disciplined you.The problem with Saturn in house 10 is hunger and never feeling satiated. There is always more to earn, more to achieve, more prizes to win.. and this is exhausting. It can leave you with very little time to spend cultivating a happy, fulfilling family life of your own. It is possible that an event occurs that shakes up the work/home imbalance, if there has been one. Once you begin re-parenting yourself you might find that you start earning enough so that you can actually afford to pay for some assistance.
Scorpio 2018 Horoscope ~ January to March
With the Feb 15 Solar Eclipse your home base becomes extremely important in the next 6 months and this is the perfect time to renovate. Digging into your basement is particularly symbolic as you will have to work on having strong support with this Solar Eclipse. The foundations of your life both physical and emotional are being re-set. You are called upon to seek out supportive family members you can trust, they don’t have to be blood ties, but need to feel like your clan.

Black Moon Lilith joins Saturn in your 3rd house of the neophyte all season. In ancient times this was also known as the house of the goddess, so Lilith should feel quite at home here. This is a very experimental time where you will want to taste a piece of every fruit in the local forest and be quite the social butterfly. All the information and experiences you collect may result in an inspired piece of writing or other media, which you then communicate to the world. Taboo topics will dominate your thinking so any artistic output at this time may be reactionary and or have a need to convey ancient, pagan principles.
Scorpio 2018 Horoscope ~ April to June
Saturn continues to plough through your 3rd house this season. While the internal and the external adapt to match one other, you may experience some fall-out from those who cannot communicate with you on an equal footing. This is natural and part of Saturn’s lessons here in the learning zone. It may indeed feel like you are back in primary school again, and, as often happens during a transition, one can experience solitude and disconnection from your ‘classmates’. Try not to get depressed and wall yourself off further, reach out and test-drive your new brain wiring, you should be pleasantly surprised by the response.
You continue to enjoy generous Jupiter your own sign. You should be feeling blessed and fertile in 2018. Financial gain also means we can treat ourselves to cabs when we could walk or eat at finer restaurants where the food is just too irresistible. We will also just find we get rather greedy too because there is such a lack of restriction on our personal desires. An inflated sense of self is handy though, it can make you appear super-confident and larger than life, even if deep inside you feel like the tiny Wizard of Oz. Everything is limitless when Jupiter is in our sign. It naturally draws benefactors and resources towards oneself, so it is important you take advantage of these gifts while the going is good.
Ceres spends extra time in Leo from the beginning of the year until the end of this season. She helps seed the lunar eclipse energy in your 10th house of life purpose. This is the time for both men and woman learn to nurture themselves and be their own mothers. The crone/wizard energy is very strong at this time and you may be recognized as a wise elder in your community and/or amongst your peers. You might receive an award celebrating talents in the divining arts such as Tarot, astrology and other forms of prediction. Professions associated with priestess energy, like healing, herbalism, transmission of ancient wisdom and shamanism, could pull you away from your regular job. You are called to your true vocation, and choose soul happiness over financial security.
Scorpio 2018 Horoscope ~ July to September
The Jul 13 Solar Eclipse in your expansive 9th house so travel is an avenue that will help broaden the mind, so for the next 6 months, trips abroad or meaningful exchanges with influential foreigners could help you see the world through a much wider angle lens. The Jul 27 Lunar Eclipse takes place in the roots of your chart. Constructive criticism from your superiors, doesn’t mean that you have to storm out of your job! Instead, look at why you are viewing what should be ‘appraisals’ as ‘admonishments.’ Any work upsets are likely to have you scuttling back to the safety of your cocoon, but maybe you have to acknowledge that this is what is currently needed.
Mars Retrograde from Jun 27 to Aug 12. There is a simmering volcano sitting behind the sofa in the living room. Well that’s what it will feel like with Mars Retrograde in your domestic zone. Put a child look over all those sharp objects and make sure the fire alarms are working. If you don’t then avoid lighting candles while under the influence… Ok so all the warnings are out of the way you might actually find this transit quite exciting, for this is quite a sexy place for Mars to be, especially if you have just moved in with your beloved. It’s the kind of transit where you will be furiously decorating and putting a lot of energy into your love nest. In fact this is probably the best way to use this position. Knock out walls, paint walls in warm, glowing colours, install an antique fireplace and yes dammit, light the dinner candles! You have an extended time of Mars’s ambition, aggression and focus in your most private zone of your chart.
The Aug 11 Solar Eclipse in your important house of status means now is not the time to hold back, it’s about facing your fear of rejection and grabbing the solar spotlight unashamedly. Ask for that pay rise, promotion or more publicity. What is the worst that can happen? With Solar Eclipses expect the unexpected. Whether you are pleasantly surprised or slapped in the face, at least you will know where you stand.
Mars re-enters your important foundational house on May 18, where it was retrograde. You are free now to put a great deal of energy into your domestic situation! This could be working on renovations or putting effort into moving house. There is also a big passion for your roots and motherland if you don’t live in the country of your ancestors. You could have strong feelings of cultural pride and connection with the land. If the two are one and the same, then this bond will be easier. If not then you will feel the need to learn more about your native heritage in order to feel anchored and secure. You might also feel like fighting for your land too.
Scorpio 2018 Horoscope ~ October to December
Black Moon Lilith has been in your 4th house from Aug 11 and will stay there until the end of the year. This passage may bring up your own unresolved issues from childhood. For example, the parent may have found it hard to accept his child growing into an adult and their budding sexuality. At this time the parent may have rejected the child, feeling threatened by their burgeoning power. The worse case scenario would be that memories of abuse from either parent (Though most often it is the father) are triggered by this transit. This can activate a rage against all authority figures.
The Venus retrograde from Oct 6 takes place in your own sign so this one will be particularly strong for you. You have been given the opportunity to really reinvent yourself. On the most basic level, this transit can prompt a make-over. Changing the style of your clothes, going blonde or starting a fitness routine that alters your bodies appearance on the outside are all possibilities. But it does go deeper than that, and the packaging is really a symbol of internal changes too. What you are probably doing is revisiting a look that you had in the past with the psychological effect that it will make you feel younger and vital again. You could be drawn to retro fashion as well. Any changes in appearance might worry loved ones as this might be quite unusual for you. If you are in a relationship they might even suspect you of having an affair! It doesn’t help that at this time you are contradictory with the images you are projecting. Then Venus hits her Lucifer phase in your 12th house until Nov 16 could easily con you into playing martyr to some wretched soul. This can show up as the Neptunian/victim ‘Dark Cupid’. Don’t let that vampire suck you bone dry!
Ceres moves into your own sign from Nov 11 to Dec 28. Your body is like an antenna right here so you will need to learn how to fine-tune it to receive the truth and not lies. Keeping your body temple as pure as possible is important, so that the messages are not lost in translation. Look after your body with a clean diet and its senses will serve you well. Take care to keep your psychic shield strong and fine-tune it so that you are connecting with good spirits! It is the Christmas season so go easy on the sherry goddess.
Bid farewell to Jupiter as he leaves your sign on Nov 8. Now he can work wonders on expanding your cash. Self-esteem is directly related to what you think you can earn as you have learnt with the recent Venus retrograde. When Jupiter graces this zone, it will do a more thorough job of revealing the health of your own self-esteem or lack thereof. So you will basically get more of what you value, so if those values are warped then so will the gain. Hence, if you think it is honourable to be poor and you have an inverted sense of snobbery about this, then you will get an increase… in poverty. Other scenarios are you hold onto material wealth out of fear and far too tightly, it will just stagnate, because there is no room for it to grow.
SCORPIO 2018 ~ The Decans
Scorpio Decan 1 ~ Oct 23 to Nov 2(0º to 10º)
Scorpio 1 has a delicious set of transits for this year with no particularly harsh ones from the outer planets. The main transit you have is the Saturn sextile from Jan 1 to Dec 19. With this running through the whole year, opportunities arise for you to build a solid reputation for years to come. The only catch is that these offers won’t be handed to you on a plate. You will actually have to go out and search out sponsors and people with whom you can work.
Once you have invested your time and effort then you will see the payoff. The first prickly transit is the Venus square from Jan 18 to 25, this is a great motivator to get going with building your future, like having an itch. It won’t make you complacent that’s for sure. One that is more relaxing is the Venus trine from Feb 11 to 18. Both in business and your love life this combination lays the foundation for trust in partnerships. It is also great for diplomacy and peace-making. You should be able to build bridges with people who you once had ‘issues’ with. Running alongside the Venus trine is a slightly more tense Ceres square from Feb 5 to Apr 28. This is a good one for dealing with narcissists! Watch out for those folk who over-flatter you and bitch about your friends. This might come to a head with the Venus opposition from Mar 31 to Apr 7.
Many things are happening at once with doors opening in your love life, and other doors shutting with out-of-date friends. You will find out who has been plotting behind your back, and at the same time be relieved to find you have some really loyal colleagues, followers or friends you had no idea about. Romance is beckoning with the sweet and silky Venus trine from May 20 to 27. Don’t worry too much about the Mars square from May 16 to Jun 26. So much good energies are around you that all this will do is give you a cutting edge to blitz through annoying people. You just won’t have the patience to suffer fools! Another sulky aspect to deal with is the Venus square from Jun 14 to 22. If there are any females who have been acting jealously then they need to be ousted from your company at this time. However, the Venus square does give you the elbow grease to work hard on any artistic projects, so you can channel the grit in that way.
The helpful Saturn sextile continues to work wonders for you. It could feel like there is come karmic connection with collaborators or new partners at this time. It’s not just about business opportunities though as you are likely to see much more commitment in romantic affairs also. There will simply be very little patience with time wasters. On the other hand, you will have plenty of patience for cultivating working relationships with people who are sincere in their interest in the real you.
The Lunar Eclipse square on Jul 27 brings relationship issues to a head, but this should work in a beneficial manner. Again this is about weeding out the flaky unreliable people in your life. Everything you are building this year is going to be made to last, so you really don’t want to waste time or money on people or products who will not hold up their allocated part of the load.. All four sides need to be equally strong. The eclipse falls in a foundational house anyhow, so this just emphasises how deep those roots are going to be thrust in order for the treehouse to be supported.. You also get a direct hit from the Mars Retrograde square from Jun 27 to Aug 12. This is a vibration that you know so well. Mars retro works a lot like Pluto, or in traditional astrology a night Mars. So even if it is a hard square aspect, you can use this knife as a surgeon would, to drefty cut out tumorous people, projects or objects from your life for good. This will free up energy so that you can create new life and make fresh starts in all areas, but in particular your domestic life. Throw out that manky old sofa, now!
The Lilith square will test your patience and your new structures, and from Aug 11 to Nov 4 you might have someone tempting you with that forbidden fruit. Use your discernment here as you have the far more favourable Venus conjunction on its way from Sep 9 to 28. You don’t want to be too hungover from the seductive, but possibly toxic offerings from the dark goddess. The Ceres conjunction will help pull you back out of the underworld into her nurturing arms and help heal any Lilithy love bites from Nov 12 to Dec 4. Now you have your mojo back with the ballsy Mars trine from Nov 16 to 30. This will help push any of those last Saturn sextile opportunities to their highest limits. Saturn bids you goodbye on Dec 19, but leaves you will a fantastic structure now for you to hang your artistic wares on to. Any relationship Saturn brought into your life is real and solid, not some cotton candy that will only melt into a sticky mess of nothing overnight. Happy stable Christmas!
Scorpio Decan 2 ~ Nov 3 to 12(10º to 20º)
Scorpio 2 has a very busy transit year ahead with an absolute dreamboat of an aspect with the Neptune trine which lasts all year. This will add a beautiful spiritual dimension behind everything that happens this year. Your intuition will support all that you do and you will feel guided by angels. Yes I know this sounds a bit too good to be true, but Neptune is like that.. Anyway, it’s a trine so what could go wrong? You start the year and get an instant reboot with the Lunar Eclipse square on Jan 31. This zaps the foundation of your being, but it also feels refreshing and makes you want to either change job or give you an unexpected boost of status. You will have to say goodbye to the amazing Jupiter conjunction in your decan on Jan 20, this should have boosted your confidence no end as lucky Jupiter has been in your sign for a whole year. Although it will be sad to say goodbye to his jolly rotund figure, you will at least be able to say goodbye to your own expanded waistline, if Jupiter has done a bloat job on you. (tends to happen if you have Scorpio 2 rising).
The Mars conjunction from Jan 18 to 25 will inject you with the energy to burn off any remaining Jupiter fat. Jupiter rules the liver and eating fat makes it work too hard. The Ceres square could help push you into getting your diet sorted out from Jan 1 to Feb 6. Watch what you are eating every day, maybe photograph it to see how many veggies you are eating. Then the Ceres Retrograde square from Apr 29 to Jul 1 forces you further into getting really healthy. Food is now your medicine and you might actually give up the gluten. A square from the grain goddess could highlight just how intolerant you are to bread and pasta. Maybe that Jupiter bloat wasn’t the fault of the gas giant after all!
The Venus square from Jan 26 to Feb 2 also points to having to avoid being too indulgent, but here you might feel tempted to treat yourself. Resist! If you do, thou shalt be rewarded with the Venus trine from Feb 19 to 26. You get a great selection of Venus energy for the rest of this period and with the Neptune trine backdrop too you are in danger of mistaking your life for a fairytale. This can only happen if you indulge in any mind-altering substances… Really you shouldn’t need to take any drugs at all, you will already feel quite floaty enough already. The downside is you might find it hard to work if your profession is very left brain and corporate. If you are single the Venus opposition could manifest some fair angel into your life from Apr 8 to 15. It’s all so lovely and romantic because this is followed by a Venus trine from May 28 to Jun 4. Something has to pull you back down to earth so here comes the Venus square from Jun 23 to 30 to do just that! Get on with some work now if you can peel yourself off that gondola.
It’s an eclipse fest for you this year with yet another Solar Eclipse square on Aug 11. It’s good in a way that you have some more electrical aspects, because everything else with the Neptune trine can get quite languid. You will need some zesty aspects to fire you up into action. The second half of the year does that for you, starting off with the Mercury Retrograde square from Aug 4 to 18. You may be talking mostly in elf, but most people don’t speak Neptune unfortunately. The retrograde will remind you to start being a little more business-like in your dealings so you don’t frighten off any prospective clients.
You get another Venus conjunction from Sep 29 to Oct 5 where you can take time off with your beloved and do some running around the woods with flower garlands in your hair. Add some little jingly bells too if you like, because you get a double dose of pleasure-loving Venus in her retrograde phase, the Venus retrograde conjunction continues from Oct 6 to 11. You are rudely awakened from your revelry with the Mars square from Oct 10 to 29. But you won’t care because you are still high as a kite. Be sure to get sober in time for the Lilith square from Nov 5 to Dec 31 because she can be a spiteful witch if you trigger some narcissist who thinks you are enjoying yourself too much and is projecting their bitterness. All is great with the Mars trine however from Dec 1 to 16, You learn that any attacks are just other peoples ‘stuff’ and it is a valuable waste of energy to take it personally or engage in any apologist behaviour. You don’t need to defend or excuse your own behaviour at all.
The Ceres conjunction comes to your rescue from Dec 5 to 28 and you feel protected and nurtured. Having the wisdom of more mature women around you helps put in perspective any juvenile behaviour from ignoramuses. It’s actually not their fault, but it’s also not your responsibility to educate some sense into them either, otherwise you will tie yourself in knots and not even be appreciated for the time that you have given. The Venus conjunction from Dec 17 to 27 leaves you on a high note. You are surrounded by loved ones and the Christmas holidays should be really very enjoyable for you due to the harmonious energy. You end the year on very firm footing with a grounding Saturn sextile from Dec 20. Life feels comfortable, snug and secure now that Saturn has your back.
Scorpio Decan 3 ~ Nov 13 to 22 (20º to 30º)
It is your turn to get the lucky Jupiter conjunction now from Jan 21 to Apr 25. Jupiter has already been in Scorpio for almost a year so you should be feeling some of the benefits by now. However when Jupiter is in your decan the effects should peak. The conjunction from Jupiter is supposed to be one of the most fortunate and happy transits you can have and you only get this once every 12 years, so make the most of this new start. You should feel healthy, optimistic and confident in all your dealings. Because of this exuberance you should also attract luck and generous benefactors into your life. The Mars conjunction from Jan 10 to 26 kicks Jupiter into action with a super ambitious rocket-launch of passion. After that is a little grit from the Venus square from Feb 3 to 10, however this will buff any rough edges from conflicts very easily and you also have the benefit of the bounce back effect from Jupiter.
Any friction or aggression that comes your way is met with Jupiter’s force field and any harmonious Venus love transits are amplified even more. The first one of these is the sumptuous Venus trine from Feb 27 to Mar 6. Jupiter and Venus together are double benefic so use this opportunity to bring joy and laughter into your life. An opportunity not to be missed. Even better is when Venus is in your marriage house and in opposition aspect from Apr 16 to 24.
If you are single Venus then should bring some romance into your life so do not lock yourself away. Love will find you, but you have to be visible! Lucky you as there are no other harsh aspects at all at this time. Yet another pleasant and fun Venus trine is available from Jun 5 to 13 and another opportunity to enjoy social get-togethers. The Ceres square gives you a bit of a reality check from Jun 2 to 27, but against the backdrop of Jupiter all that means is having to restrict your diet in some way. We are not just talking reduction in material consumption, but also what you let into your body visually and aurally. The organic detox is only so that you can make room for and enjoy Jupiter’s gifts without feeling too stuffed!
The second half of the year is a lot less packed in terms of transits. The first Venus square from Jul 1 to 9 is just a little hiccup, and you won’t have Jupiter to buffer you from that. Instead learn to compromise with loved ones. Venus squares are never catastrophic, just annoying. Sometimes it’s just silly gossip, or a comment taken the wrong way on Venusian social networks like ‘look at my pretty face’ book. The Venus square can be quite vain, so it may bring up your unconscious fears of being unattractive compared to others. Again this is fuelled by the unnatural competition that the image-based internet can breed.
The great Jupiter conjunction returns from Sep 19 to Nov 7 which should bring back optimism and boost your self-esteem. The only danger with this energy is overdoing things and over-reaching beyond your capabilities. Keep spending in check and you should be fine. Jupiter can bring honours and recognition. At this time you might find you are showered with praise from all sides, so enjoy feeling fabulous. Apart from Jupiter adding glitz to your life. There is just some muscle-flexing with the Mars square from Oct 30 to Nov 15. At this time you might need to assert yourself and be courageous in your workplace. You can be bold because you still have Jupiter protecting your interests. You end the year with a marvellous Mars trine from Dec 17 to 31 which will help you transition from having had Jupiter’s heroic influence behind you. The mighty god of gods has moved on, but he always leaves you in a great place. Now you feel motivated to continue the growth and expansion all by yourself as you feel so much more capable than before his transit. You no longer need Jupiter to hold your hand through the opportunities that lie
