In your home and domestic household where you really should be happy as a clam now, I advised you to prepare yourself for disappointment over how your fellow humans were setting their priorities. It seemed that the lower end of human nature may have been eroding good will in the current situation. Due to a strong cultural trend toward scarcity thinking, a “me first” outlook prevailed. If that meant that you needed to develop a thick skin or carry your sword of truth closer, then you did so.
The most significant astrological event of the month, however, is the Lunar Nodes switching signs: the North Node moves into Taurus, and the South Node moves into Scorpio. And where does the North Node in Taurus hit you? Your seventh house of relationships. This means that, however thick your skin is now, or how deeply you are barricaded in your home this February, you still have to deal with relationships. And no, love is not over for you. Just in hiatus as you continue to strengthen your boundaries.
With an early family member – with whom you may have been estranged for a while – try not to be too quick to anger or jump to conclusions. Just because others may have a pessimistic sense of the world, their reality does not have to undermine yours. There certainly is no point in struggling or competing with them. Your challenge now is to learn how to sidestep confrontation and evoke a more evolved response from people. At the very least, be assertive about setting those boundaries for yourself.
Home is where it’s at, with a welcome increase in your security mid-month. Leaving certain stability for a promising unknown has been unexpectedly grim. You’re rarely scared, but it’s been truly a scary time. You’ll be able to breathe much easier after February begins. Then all will be settled and you can get down to your work and ideas happily for the next nine months. Sorting your home base is really key. Money and lack of faith are the issues that have been holding you back.
It’s crucial also to reach out to a sibling, old neighbor or friend who FEELS like a sibling. In a freaky way, she / he symbolizes the odd role model that you’ve been resisting for yourself for years. As of February 1, your individuality is highlighted and you bravely go out on a limb because your life path demands it. Immediate results will not be forthcoming – too many retrogrades at work – but the end harvest is spectacular. Success comes from your most original – and iconoclastic – ideas.
So no dwelling on worst case scenarios, Scorpio. You have too much good up ahead to be pessimistic. What’s happening now – WTH? – is going to turn out fine. As January ends you should feel proud of your strength in managing all in your fourth house of home and early family! Endings, beginnings, renovation, excavation…and a new you is born in this February.
For in your fourth house of home and early family you have:
Planet of rational thought Mercury, in and out of retrograde
And a friendly new Aquarius Moon on Monday, January 31, bringing a brand-new offer, plus or minus 3 days
That’s a wealth of planetary power to help you through. You will be making some very important decisions and changes as to where you want to live, and how you want to be, with the planets’ help and guidance.
The only check you have to watch this month is your temper. You may feel overtaxed and the slightest thing can set you off. A joke someone makes can offend you when you are feeling like this. You can tend to take matters too personally. I can tell you someone will really, really piss you off. So take a breath, Scorpio dear, and get thee to a yoga or a meditation class. This month will be the best time in the world to do this. Pallas, asteroid of wisdom, enters your sixth house of healthy routine Monday, February 14.
And a note to self — this by fellow water sign Cancerian Helen Keller: Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much. So don’t be afraid to ask for assistance this month. It will help. You may be taking on – as usual – too much by yourself. Friends are standing on hand, waiting to be asked.
Your fourth house, traditionally ruled by survivalist Cancer, rules:
Your original family
Your personal life
Your life through childhood
Land and agriculture
Beginnings and endings
Security and protection
Ancient and deep-seated bonds between you and others
There is extra emphasis on your home right now, and many of you will be renovating, as well as buying, selling, or hibernating. Early family members are much more in the picture than usual. The ideal you have of everyone happily gathered together may have to be revised, as you are also having wild daydreams about being outside the home and on a creative self-adventure.
And there’s the pressure of your public career, which is a whole new road… The full moon in Leo occurs in your tenth career house of prestige Wednesday, February 16, and is very dramatic.
That week February 13 – 19 is when you need most to watch your temper and taking things personally.
As you begin and end any life-chapters right now, keep your eyes clear on the road. It does not matter that you don’t know yet exactly where that road is headed. Just keep your eyes ON it. Whether it be your career path or the long road of your relationship: keep your eyes ON it.
You’ve been working hard, Scorpio, chipping away. Now, February is an amazing time for you. You are about to see the flowering of your results. Your cup will – truly – overfloweth.
Try not to let it overfloweth, however, in terms of the drink inside it (or however else you bury your demons nowadays.) You have too much at stake.
You may feel you have given up on love, but love has not given up on you! You have lucky breaks Jupiter in your fifth house of passion, to be joined by the all-powerful Sun Friday, February 18 for a month.
Jupiter until May 10 brings wonderful opportunities here. You just must be prepared to grab hold of them. This also applies to passion in creativity. Write stuff down!
To meet someone, you must be prepared to leave the house once in a while…I see so many of you Scorpios holing up at home. As February ends, however, you do get out there and your life becomes more social. This leads to a fun time – with romance and entertaining…
For coupled Scorpio, your love life also heats up again after February 18. For single Scorpio after that date you have the chance to meet someone real.
