Your Scorpio Horoscope January 2019 means connections with your immediate neighbourhood become important this month. Locally there are many events and a call for you to participate. You can’t really hold back from involving yourself, even if you tried, so dive right in with gusto. This is not a month to keep quiet! You will be asked your opinion and also to speak out about local issues if you have been active in the community. There is a restlessness about you, and you will want to keep busy with visiting siblings or reconnecting with friends you haven’t seen for a while.
This the time for catching up with local gossip. Research and learning is well starred too as your mind is hungry to chew on a book or twelve. This is a great time to learn something new. From January 20 the focus falls on your home and you are drawn to snuggling up on the sofa or pottering around the garden. It feels like you need to ground yourself again and get closer to your roots, whether that is about connecting with family or just doing tree pose bare foot in the garden.
Scorpio Monthly Horoscope 2019 ~ Eclipse Special
The Solar Eclipse January 6 falls in your 3rd house. The solar eclipse in your student zone, zaps your brain synapses and resets all your local connections. Networks that you are plugged into get fire-wired into action and your mind becomes hungry for new information. At this time you might decide to embark on an apprenticeship of some kind.
You could actually go back to school or simply be called to initiate some personal study and research. Picking up new skills is highlighted or maybe relearning something that breaks you out of bad habits. For example you might join a new local yoga class that retrains the way you have been holding a posture for the better.
The Lunar Eclipse January 21 falls in your 10th house. This is a possible life-changing eclipse which illuminates the foundations of your life and how it has programmed your status out in the world. Did you parents like their work? Did they invest in you to live out their unfulfilled ambitions? If so, is the career you are in now a reflection of their aspirations rather than your soul-calling?
This period of time should provide you the opportunity to re-align with your true talents. Test out wether it is true that if you follow your heart, the financial security will follow and be pleasantly surprised. On the other hand your success may also be a result of proving your parents wrong. If nothing you did was ever good enough then the constant striving for excellence could have served you well in material terms.
Scorpio Love & Money For January 2019
Scorpio Career Horoscope
Mercury travels through your 3rd house from January 5 to 23. You are very likely to be stuck behind the computer or a pile of books for a week or so since your brain is in research mode. If you want to learn something very techy, this is an ideal time as your mind is interested in the tiny details at the moment. You might find your career is most successful in dealing with local people at this time.
You might feel that your qualifications are not enough to give you the lifestyle you need. Maybe you feel like changing your job but will need to do some study. During this time you will just feel like doing research and sticking your head in a book rather than wheeling-and-dealing. It is also a good time for filling in application forms for higher education.
Scorpio Love Horoscope
Venus enters your 2nd house on January 7. The temptation will be to indulge in luxury goods rather than in wise investments, so try to have a little self-control. You might need your partner to show their love for you through gifts and fancy dinners, but this may be because you feel a little insecure at this time. Maybe it would be better to show your vulnerability, rather than getting them to break the bank in order to prove their love. A genuine hug and kind words will feel unexpectedly precious if you drop the diva act.
These horoscopes are most accurate when read for your ascendant, but if you have your Sun plus a stellium (2 or more planets) in this sign then you will find that these horoscopes will ring true for your Sun also. All mainstream horoscopes are written using solar houses, which, in others words, is writing for your ascendant. However, the majority of astrologers won’t tell you that because they realise most of their readers will not know their ascendant. If you do not know your ascendant please use this free chart maker to find it. Once you have done that you can also read more about your rising decan and star too! It is the most personal point of your chart and the only one (Along with your ruling planet) that really describes you personally and your incarnation for this lifetime. Please read my The Zodiac Decans ~ Astrological Use & History post for greater understanding in using the decans in general.
THE SCORPIO INCARNATION
Ascendant Scorpio 1
The ascendant gives the purest expression of the decans energy since no planets will colour its expression. The ascendant is also the relationship axis, so the influences above will play out mostly in how the subject relates to others. With Scorpio decan 1 the agony and the ecstasy dynamic will be most notable in relationships. If these folk are artists then the torture, pain and disappointment suffered in their love affairs will be channeled through the arts. Writers will bring the trauma of the human condition into their plot lines. Themes could be the dilemma of resisting sexual temptation, betrayal and faithfulness. Ethics and how to best serve god are also possible. It is not surprising to see Gandhi and Padre Pio in the list below, expectantly the latter. Padre Pio actually had Acrux as his rising star!
The Padre is most famous for bearing the stigmata, the permanently bleeding wounds of Christ’s crucifixion in the palms of his hands. As a child, Pio slept on a stone floor with a rock as a pillow. Pio was often in severe pain due to illnesses which brought about out-of-body experiences. Friars in his company had reported seeing him levitate off the ground in a state of ecstasy. Kubrick’s last film ‘Eyes wide shut dealt with the sexual underworld of New York, orgies and bizarre sex rituals.
ASCENDANT SCORPIO 1 EXAMPLES: Isaac Newton, Mohandas Gandhi, Padre Pio, Oliver Stone, Stanley Kubrick, Grigori Rasputin, Giacomo Casanova, Napoleon 1st, Beethoven, Israeli Independence, Caitlyn Jenner, Leonard Nimoy, Natasha Kinski, Grace Kelly, Colin Firth, Katherine Hepburn, Charlton Heston, Ewan McGregor, River Phoenix, Nicole Kidman, Tom Cruise, Tyrone Power, Sid Vicious, Julio Iglesias, Enrique Iglesias, Midge Ure, Gary Numan, Adam Ant, Jay Kay, Bill Haley, Divine, Chuck Berry, Chaka Khan, Melanie B, Robin & Maurice Gibb, Mike Tyson, Uri Gellar, Christian Dior, Johnny Carson, Victor Hugo, Andre Citroen, Paloma Picasso, Paul Cezanne, Maurice Ravel, George Orwell, D.H Lawrence, Edgar Allan Poe, George Sand, Mark Twain, Bertrand Russell, Barratt/Browning Davison.
Ascendant Scorpio 2
Zuben Elgenubi 15º ~ “Conjunct the Ascendant, this star could mean rise in fortunes, followed by a downfall. There is also an indication of danger coming about in connection with water.”
Zubenelschemali 19º ~ “Honor, preferment, good fortune.”
The ascendant gives the purest expression of the decans energy since no planets will colour its expression. The ascendant is also the relationship axis, so the influences above will play out mostly in how the subject relates to others. With Scorpio decan 2 the spiritual accountants and poker-faced behaviour will be most notable in their romantic life. It will be hard for these folk not to get involved with very karmic relationships. They are drawn to unions where there are heavy debts to be re-paid, that have been avoided over a few lifetimes. During this incarnation it may seem that all partnerships swing from one extreme to the other very quickly if they put a foot wrong, like karma is working straight away.
Their partners often accuse them of being hard to read and evasive, but this is because AC Scorpio 2 are trying to avoid extreme reactions from their lovers. This infuriating behaviour often has quite the opposite effect and AC Scorpio 2 finds they attract very dramatic and neurotic spouses. Sometimes they themselves are the drama kings or queens. In the later case AC Scorpio 2 will attract icy cool partners to whom they become quite obsessive in their quest to unlock the secrets they think their lover is hiding. Sigmund Freud is quite a good example of someone who was quite obsessive in his quest to understand the psychology behind the sexual drives of humans.
ASCENDANT SCORPIO 2 EXAMPLES: The Vatican, Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, Margaret Thatcher, Sigmund Freud, Richard III of England, Marquis De Sade, Mata Hari, Rudolf Steiner, David Lynch, Clint Eastwood, Michael Douglas, Joan Crawford, Bette Davis, Natalie Portman, Diane Keaton, Robin Williams, Jim Carrey, Johnny Weissmuller, Katy Perry, Aretha Franklin, Beyonce Knowles, Bjork, Keith Richards, Ozzy Osbourne, Bryan Ferry, Prince, Jimmy Page, Sandy Shaw, Shania Twain, Neil Young, Geri Halliwell, Missy Elliot, Dannii Minogue, Henri Toulouse-Lautrec, Marcel Duchamp, Paul Klee, Herb Ritts, Marc Chagall, Johann Wolfgang Goethe, Claudia Schiffer, Joanna Lumley, Harry Secombe, Barbara Windsor, Sarah Ferguson, Chelsea Clinton, Bear Grylls, Devi Poolan, Gloria Steinhem, Douglas Fairbanks, Eddie Kid, Republic Of Italy.
Ascendant Scorpio 3
Agena 24º (Heliacal rising star) ~ “ The natural ability in dealing with the ordinary, everyday things, and finding that this path leads to success or fulfilment. The gift of the common touch; a feeling or intuition for what people want or need, which can be of great benefit both to oneself or others.” [5a]
Toliman 29º (Heliacal rising star) ~ “The teacher, one who brings knowledge to others. To believe that the path forward is one of learning, education and organisation. A tendency to be dictatorial.” [5b]
The ascendant gives the purest expression of the decan’s energy since no planets will colour its expression. The ascendant is also the relationship axis, so the influences above will play out mostly in how the subject relates to others. With Scorpio decan 3 the ‘forbidden forest’ intrigue will be most notable in relationships. Being attracted to the forbidden fruit is highly likely with these folk, and they are very likely to get involved with highly ‘supernatural’ type relationships. Sometimes they themselves are the arch-seducers or they seem to attract their shadow in the shape of their partner. Despite their ‘Bad boy/girl’ image they are likely to be very popular as public figures and will really play their ability to be in touch with the common people (Whether they really are or not.)
Possibly Ascendant Scorpio 3 appeals to the renegade in all of us. Terence McKenna epitomizes the side of this decan that connects most with those musty mushrooms growing deep in the forest, he is also a teacher and guru figure too. We also find astrologers here, people who deal with the mysterious realm or the darker side of human nature. Ascendant Scorpio 3 have a natural sexuality combined with incredibly healing hands. They are also very sensitive to their partner’s needs and therefore very skilled lovers. These folk have the right balance of animal magnetism and sophistication so they never come across as being at all brutish. This is the zone of the Kundalini remember!
