This is the 2018 Scorpio horoscope, based on the most important planetary transits and aspects. There is great news for Scorpios: Saturn leaving the second house means less pressure on Scorpio’s finances, while Jupiter entering the second house (in November) brings a profitable and productive period of thirteen months.
Starting December 20th, 2017: Saturn leaves the second house – Less Pressure
With Saturn entering the third house, the astrological house of communication, of lower education, short trips and immediate environment, Scorpio will have to rethink his relationship with his environment: how he communicates, where he goes, what he knows and what he must learn in the future. But the great news is that Saturn leaves the second house and there is no more pressure on Scorpio’s finances. From now on, it will be easier to make money and Scorpio employees will be rewarded for all the efforts they had made during the last three years. The recognition they receive for their work encourages engagement and also encourages them to have even better individual performances.
Starting May 15th: Uranus leaves the sixth house – Combine Tradition and Innovation
During the last seven years, Uranus transited Scorpio’s sixth house – astrological house of jobs and employments. Many Scorpios had unconventional jobs or at least unconventional ideas at work. They were appreciated for their originality and creativity but, on the other hand, it was difficult to introduce new ideas at work, especially when Uranus was moving backward, namely approximately 5 months every year. Sometimes, they pushed things too far or they discovered that having a lot of ideas competing against one another can lead to confusion. From now on, with this planet no more in the sixth house, Scorpio will remain original and creative, but will also be capable to combine tradition and innovation, he/she will know when to come up with new ideas but also when tradition and routine are also very useful at work.
August 11th: New Moon in the tenth house – Need to Shine in Career
With the New Moon in the tenth house, it is a good time to develop new business plans and career goals. This New Moon occurs in the fiery sign of Leo, so that Scorpio feels a strong need to shine in career, to be recognized for his merits and efforts. This is a good day to start a long-term professional project, to fix an important business meeting or to participate at social events, where you can meet valuable people or find someone who will support you in career. Don’t be afraid to talk about your professional achievements, but also about your most important projects. If you let people know you better, they will appreciate you more. So, this is not a good day to be modest!
November 8th: Jupiter enters Sagittarius and the second house – Prosperity
Jupiter was always considered a benefic planet, because it is associated with the principles of growth, expansion, prosperity and good fortune. Jupiter helps us to grow, to evolve in the area that it transits. Between, November 8th, 2018 and December 3rd, 2019, Jupiter transits Scorpio’s second house, astrological house of money, property and acquisitions. Here, this planet should bring a profitable and productive period of thirteen months, for all Scorpios. Opportunities to earn extra money abound and each Scorpio will find his own solution. One of the simplest is to request and to obtain a raise. Other Scorpios will have to change jobs and they will surely know how to negotiate their salary. For some of them, the best option is a part-time job. But, whatever their option will be, almost all Scorpios will earn more money.
November 16th-December 1st: Mercury Retrogrades in Second House – Payment Delays
These two weeks, some Scorpios will find themselves faced with payment delays and problems with working capital. Having retrograde Mercury, it will be difficult to speed up payments, so that you need to find other solutions. The most obvious is to build an emergency fund, to help you maintain your normal life through the emergencies that life hands you. For example, since you know that the second half of November can be complicated, you can remove luxuries from your budget, in September and October. Cutting luxury expenses and spending money on absolute essential first will help you to save for an emergency fund.
December 12th-January 5th: Mercury Direct in Second House – Communicate Effectively
This is a good transit for setting up new business negotiations and planning. Scorpios will communicate effectively in the workplace. Robert Frost said that „half the world is composed of people who have something to say and can’t, and the other half who have nothing to say and keep on saying it“. Mercury transiting the second house will help Scorpio to speak only when they have something to say. They will be more appreciated at work and their opinion will be respected not only by their co-workers, but also by their bosses and employers. At the end of December 2018, Santa Klaus will bring Scorpios a lot of presents – maybe a raise, maybe some gratuities.
