Scorpio your year ahead 2016

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

“I was so naive as a kid, I used to sneak behind the barn and do nothing.”

Johnny Carson (Oct. 23, 1925 to Jan 23, 2005)

Does your Past Predict Your Future?

In 1993-94, life was good because Jupiter was in your sign; and soon, around 1997, you improved your home scene. Job opportunities were strong by the turn of the millennium, however, partnerships were challenging, and ended. A significant time in your life occurred around 2006 when you began to take your power and act with confidence. By 2011, you improved your job or got a better job. Also at that time you began to let go of much of what you had created in your life since 1999. Last year, your career and reputation got a boost. Many of you got a promotion, public recognition or esteem from your peers. Work-related travel was also likely. What is significant to know is that since 2012, you have been on a new 30-year journey. During the first leg of this journey (from 2012 until 2020) you will reinvent yourself. Ta da! In 2020, you will look back at your life in 2011 and think, ‘OMG, my life is so different now!’ Keep checking the mirror cuz you’re changing daily!

2016

Wealth, Career and Reputation

This year, for the first time in this century, you have a chance to show the world what you can do. Not because of opportunities that come your way, although they may. Not because others will help you, and they will. It will be because you will be more of a fighter for your own rights. You will take the bit in your teeth and go after what you want. Plus you will have high physical energy to do this. This year will be upbeat, independent and a positive time. This combination might not come again for years – but it is here this year – so use it!

Meanwhile, this is a popular year for you. Acquaintances, organizations and groups are willing to help you. Many of you will get a promotion at work or public recognition. This year, it’s important to define what you really value. This does not just mean material things. In fact, if material wealth is keeping you from discovering your true values, you might experience loss. Remember: Your greatest asset this year is your own motivated energy because you are hungry to get what you want. But do you know what you want? This is important to establish. Once you know what you want, others will be ready to help you, more than any other time in over a decade.

Love, Partnerships and Friends

The world of partnerships and romance is your strongest gift this year. To begin with, you are admired – what an edge! In addition, this year, a planetary influence will make your interactions with others benefit you. It’s as if every time you meet someone, you come out ahead! (Maybe a great idea, a wonderful introduction or the perfect sympathetic ear – something different every time.) In addition, you’re full of strong, wild, sexy energy! (This blessing is a double-edged sword. What to one person might be passionate and exciting, to another, could be too much and scary! But hey, you would never settle for a wimp.) Basically, your advantages this year in your relationships are that you are energized, sexy and forthright; you are willing to go after what you want; and at the same time, as if by magic, your connections with others seem to help you! When it comes to new romance – the rest is up to you. Existing partnerships will be revved with energy and will benefit – as long as you remember that you are a handful this year. Oh yeah. People will be in awe of you.

Home and Family

With Mars in your sign for most of this year, you will have a high level of physical energy! Naturally, you will use this to work. However, it can also make you impatient with others, which is destructive to peace at home. Note: Physical exercise will release this pent-up energy. Secondly, 2016 will be popular! You will be active and out of your home a lot. Conversely, you will also invite groups to your home. Thirdly, this year you will learn what is really important to you. (One way to get things in perspective is to imagine losing someone. Scary but true.) When you think of how precious your loved ones are – this makes you see how secondary other things really are. From 2011 until 2019, there is a stronger than average relationship between your home and your health. This means that anxiety about possessions, being house proud and dealing with family members will impact your health. Lighten up about not getting your way at home.

A Sneak Peek Beyond

Good news! In October 2017, lucky, moneybags Jupiter enters Scorpio to stay for a whole year! The last time Jupiter was in your sign was in 2006; and the next time will be 2029. (This blessing occurs maybe three times in your adult life.) It will be like having Lady Luck smile on you. People and resources will be attracted to you. Your self-confidence and poise will increase, which has a lasting effect for later years. Even the spiritual dimension of your life will deepen. Between 2018 and 2021, job changes and residential moves are likely. The year 2021 is the best year in a 24-year stretch for you to take advantage of real estate. If you buy and sell real estate at that time – wonderful.

My Scorpio Mantra for 2016

“My relations with others will benefit me this year.”

Mercury Retrograde Dates in 2016

Expect delays, lost items and confused communications! Best to finish things, not begin them. These are poor times to buy cars, trucks, bikes, computers, printers and phones. [Dates below are actual retrograde dates and buffer dates. Why? Mercury slows down before it goes retrograde and then it needs to catch up to where it was at when it first went retrograde. Use buffer times to avoid big purchases like cars.]

* Jan. 5 – 25 (Buffer times:  Jan.1 – Feb. 14)

* April 28 – May 22 (Buffer times: April 19 – June 8)

* Aug. 30 – Sept. 22 (Buffer times: Aug. 18 – Oct. 6)

* Dec. 19 – Jan. 8 (Buffer times: Dec. 11 – Jan 28)
