A relationship goes back to square one, or to where you always feared it would go. The universe asks you to: wait it out. Money’s the controlling factor. After August 5, finances become clearer with Vesta going direct in your second house, and August 27, Mars goes direct in your third, and you’re free to go forward again.
This goes down as the month of your legacy. How your dreams manifest in the world. It gets lonely and cold in the land of survival and wisdom and history where you live.
You know why people are changing their minds all the time?
I’ve never seen so many retrogrades in my life. EIGHT.
That’s an insane number.
Generally it is two or three, or even four. But now it’s Mercury, along with Mars, Saturn, Neptune, your ruler Pluto, Uranus, Chiron, and Vesta. All in retrograde.
Retrograde is all about going backwards, right? Going over stuff from the past. Over and over. Re-examining. Every step, every action. Rewind the video of your life. Over and over. What really happened. Rewind as many times as you need. You have to see every detail. Can’t miss, nor skip, a beat. Getting it right this time.
What you’ve done. What you can do better. How you can make your life better.
Backwards means the past, too, so past jobs, careers, and co-workers resurface now.
Wise old Saturn, ruling your toughest lessons, is in your third house of communications so be careful what you say on impulse. It can’t be taken back and will affect your future.
I never have to tell you — as I do our more impulsive fire signs! — Kierkegaard’s “Life is a hard teacher. She gives the test first, the lesson after.” You wrote the book, honey… But it seems at this time I do. What did you say, Scorpio?? (I ask, somewhat aghast…)
If you haven’t realized it yet, this is a happening time for you. Here’s is just a brief line up promising your future goodies in your tenth house. Fame, public recognition and acclaim, your acknowledgement in the world, your professional and spiritual legitimacy, your career, all the lessons about you in the world. In here you have: life-giving Sun, Mercury (in retrograde July 26 – August 19), wise Pallas, and a solar eclipse new Moon on Saturday, August 11.
All your tenth house rules:
Your public reputation
Your life path
Claiming your talents
Striving and attainment
And often — your MOTHER.
This will help with trying to decide about jobs and work-lives. The work and survival element has been the key stress here. Now that it’s gone, you decide more clearly and rightly.
Also your passion is coming back, and that’s what is important.
You’ve been dealing with so many dark sides – not only of yourself, but of other people’s – that you had to keep yourself cool to avoid getting burned. Now the dark turns into light, and you are free to feel again.
Congratulations. You swam and climbed and came a long way to be here.
You may be feeling a little cut off from life…but not to worry! Some necessary changes are taking place, most beneath the surface, and you just need some time before you feel like jumping in again with both feet. Take a break — especially from others’ demands. That’s a lot of activity not being made available to your conscious mind!
Don’t worry about all those commitments you generally worry about. You’re on the right track, you need to take your own sweet time right now, and you’ll know when to move forward. Don’t doubt yourself!
This is an exciting time for you as the people in your life continue to change. All this movement has certainly altered your perspective and given you a break from the humdrum. Just don’t repeat your mistakes – make sure you’re being heard. Forget present partners…you’ve got some coming out of the bushes from the past.
Old love, old memories, old re-call, re-mind, re-minisce,re-member — yes, it’s all the RE words (as in REtrograde), but to do with the subject of love.
And a little bit about how you used to look, as well.
You’re looking VERY good right now. Beautiful, actually.
With Jupiter in your sign (until November) no one can resist your gorgeous smile. You keep smiling, smiling, smiling… when you feel like screaming. It is a hard, hard time in the world. Concentrate on getting your finances in order and your forward path clear. Do not act hastily or defensively. You will be fine.
Remember Scorpio Pablo Picasso, born October 25, 1881 – and still considered the best today – who astutely said: The world today doesn’t make sense, so why should I paint pictures that do?
Part of the problem may be how darned good you’re looking nowadays, and how successful you seem to be. People are envious…
What’s REALLY happening is a kind of Dorian Grey scenario – serenely charismatic on the outside while a rolling ball of fury is gathering on the inside. No matter how tortured or anxious you feel inside, no one would ever know – it’s incredible, isn’t it?
Go ahead and scream! It’ll do you good.
I’m concerned with the health of your soul, and how you’re doing internally. As are your closest intimates. One of whom may wish you to get the hell out of Dodge and join them somewhere else.
Somewhere calmer, where you can relax. And have some much-needed wonderful sex.
So, again, know you are doing well, and stop torturing yourself about moving forward. Open that bottle of wine. Look at that beautiful ocean. Embrace what is going on around you – all without you lifting a finger. Look how nature keeps going without your help – it’s a miracle!
The only serious work for you to do now is to let your fourth house of home and family HEAL. And you can do that inside the home or outside of it.
While you may be feeling at loose ends reading this horoscope, remember the short-term is not everything. It’s the long-term you need to think of – and this will prove to be glorious.
Keep your temper in check (remember to scream into that pillow), and look forward to positive change as August gets underway. You will not be disappointed.
Scorpios survive everything. Plagues, locusts, the flood, you name it. So what’s the use worrying about your health? What’s a pain here or there?
Honors, awards, accolades. That’s where it’s at this month, Scorpio. Public reputation. Your career. Your professional standing. Professional acclaim. Fame. Ambitions. Striving and attainment. Honoring your talent. Honing your skills. What you Will be Known As.
You are concerned about which parts of yourself you show, and which parts you don’t show, in the world.
As you should be.
Your standing in the world, your professional reputation, is where it’s all at this August. The main planetary action is occurring in your tenth house of career and your public reputation.
This means an awful lot of people looking your way, including some superiors whose looks matter – a lot.
Strictly professional. Whomever you are trying to impress will not let you off lightly. You know this by now.
Be prepared, and be ready. The public will, and can, look over at any time. (Scorpio Ivanka.)
A matter of property reaches a foregone conclusion by the solar eclipse new Moon August 11.
Put love on a back burner with all this career stuff going on – but no worries. Jupiter grants you many wishes before November. As they say, be careful what – or whom – you wish for.
Is it time for your own private session?
And what my clients say.
I look forward to speaking with YOU, Scorpio.
With love, Madalyn
