You want more, and you shall get it. Happiness as July ends – so the worst is soon over. Travel matters are center now, with a karmic sense of ‘just desserts’. June 28, you feel like throwing in the towel. But no matter how many times the end was near, as if you’d lost everything, you always know how to endure. And how to tape that smile on your face and go right on smiling.
So try not to concentrate on how frustrated you are. (Though you have every right to be.) Concentrate, instead, on improving your life! You’re ready to make a major move, and, goodness, have you earned it. Following an intense time of highs and lows, you need now to bring in fresh energy to allow change. Streamline and clear out past clutter. Remember: your planet Pluto transforms.
For, in your ninth house of travel and broadening your horizons, you have:
Sharp-thinking Mercury (going into retrograde July 7 to July 31)
Planet of love and beauty Venus as of Wednesday, July 3
Sexy Mars (your ancient ruler)
That solar eclipse new Moon on Tuesday, July 2
This eclipse opposes your ruler Pluto retrograde in your third house of communication, so expect disruption due to change in your family.
And what all does your ninth house rule?
Your ninth house, traditionally ruled by adventurous Sagittarius, covers:
Anything far away (Anywhere but here)
Foreign countries and cultures
Schools, centers of religion, centers of law
E-Books and magazines
You have stunning possibilities in these areas. You’ll be persuasive and charismatic, at your most charming as July gets underway. You inspire others to do what you want to do and you’ll have a helluva new adventure!
Two eclipses this month, so it’s not going to be an ordinary, business-as-usual time. Here’s the deal on them:
On Tuesday, July 2, there’s a total solar eclipse at 10 degrees and 38 minutes of Cancer. The eclipse point itself is sextile Uranus and opposing Saturn so expect the unexpected – and quite dramatically so – wherever you have Cancer in your chart. (If you don’t have any planets in Cancer, look at where Cancer appears on the outside of your chart.)
The U.S.A. cannot help but be, as Cancer Sun with Mercury, Venus, and Jupiter also in Cancer, powerfully affected by this eclipse. It will be felt most deeply on Independence Day.
For you, Scorpio – look at your ninth house (Cancer on the outside of your chart, especially if you are Scorpio rising), ruling your travel, your education, your mind-expansion. These, no doubt, will have been affected already, but July 2 will be the rising wave, the culmination, the earthquake. In a faraway place, there will be an ending and a beginning, strongly felt, with no going back.
For everyone, needless to say, surgical operations are a big NO-NO during the eclipse, and particularly on areas ruled by Cancer: stomach, breasts, and ovaries. This includes cosmetic surgery such as liposuction, breast alteration, etc. This practice was first attributed to Hippocrates, the grandfather of modern medicine (physicians still have to take the Hippocratic Oath.)
The only other time to watch out for is two weeks later, on Tuesday, July 16, with the partial lunar eclipse full Moon in Capricorn. At this time, it is advisable not to have surgery, particularly on areas ruled by Capricorn: bones and teeth. Otherwise, there can be those “complications.”
The feeling of fatigue you’ve been feeling, however, is the consequence of living an extremely driven life – even sitting in a chair, you’re still driving relentlessly forward – and by your plot to change your life. You do need a break.
And here’s the shocker. This break can only come from two things: your intimacy with another person, and following your spiritual path, finding your inner calm. That is a kind of final growing up.
Now, when it comes to intimacy – oh WOW.
In love, well…you strive for intimacy, yet a part of it terrifies you. You will feel the person pressing down on you. However much you love.
As much as you love and are loved, you’re alone much of the time. This is a natural path for you, Scorpio, even if you are surrounded by friends, even if you are married with children.
Your ruling planet is Pluto, and you should know the story of your Pluto, which began in ancient Rome. He is King of the Underworld, who drags Persephone away from her mother by her hair down to his kingdom below the Earth.
The story was, Pluto was madly in love with Persephone. Obsessed with her. But it wasn’t easy for Persephone, who, although she genuinely loved her man Pluto, missed her mother, and the earth.
Read the whole story – it’s long and wonderful and just the best, most poetic kind of story.
What I am trying to say – by way of metaphor and including an ancient Graeco-Roman myth – is that you fall in love, but not without discomfort.
Plus Pluto the PLANET – it is still a planet – which was discovered in 1930 – has a very sharp tilt of 17 degrees. Pluto’s unusual orbit shows that it is not yet in tune with the rest of our solar system.
So, that’s why you’ve always felt a bit different from everyone else. On a different orbit.
Attached Scorpios are lucky, as they’ve joined their unusual orbit to someone else’s, and it looks set to stay.
Single Scorpios, it’s still difficult, and you still sometimes wander around like a victim of shell shock. (What, you didn’t think I could see?)
You’re such a brave, original spirit, such a wizard as I say in my children’s book on Scorpios – you can do anything you set your mind to, I tell them!
The feelings of isolation are part of what you chose when you chose to be incarnated as a Scorpio, under the rule of Pluto, with its different orbit. Even with your partner.
It makes you brilliant and understanding, and you have much more compassion than people give you credit for.
And it also makes you long to connect with your mate. An ache as strong as a whale with its lost calf.
You need to connect. It must be.
This makes many Scorpio relationships border on the obsessive. This causes many single Scorpios to remain single.
This July you attempt more of a balance, an even keel, in your life of passion. You attain calm, and you attain love. Life calms down in all sorts of ways. Starting with: You’ll be relieved by the end of June to have a break from a social situation which has just become too much.
It’s a good end, and none of your time put into it has been wasted. You’ll be saying goodbye to a large degree to the idea of you performing in a certain community. ALL the time.
You accomplish miracles.
July’s all about clearing ancient stuff up. Direct Karma is a board game you should be playing now.
Most importantly, it’s a good time to trust a loved one.
You’re lucky now, you can relax. No more worrying for you. Doctor’s orders!
YOUR LUCKY DAYS Scorpio Sun and Scorpio Jupiter, your times of destiny are:
