July is your most wildly philosophical month yet. Professionally, you could be antsy – warrior Mars in your tenth house until July 29 – and through conscious effort you don’t explode. You’re straining at the bit, but you must respect the hierarchy. Even if you know more than it does, which you do.
All you can really do at this point is get philosophical and utilize the positive forces in your ninth house: the Sun, the (new) Moon, Venus, and Mercury after Sunday, July 11. This means expanding beyond your usual routine (I won’t say rut) in terms of physical expansion – travel and the far away – and also in terms of other types of expansion, mental, intellectual, and psychic. Sometimes, I refer to the ninth house as the stoner planet. It can certainly make you look at life anew, and through different dimensions.
In your ninth house of travel and broadening your horizons, you have:
Awesome, life-giving Sun
Beautiful Venus, planet of love
Brilliant sharp-thinking Mercury (just gone direct June 22)
The new friendly Cancer Moon Friday, July 9
And what all does your ninth house rule?
Your ninth house, traditionally ruled by adventurous Sagittarius, rules:
Anything far away / international
Foreign countries and cultures
Schools, laws, beliefs
E-Books and magazines
Guides and gurus
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!
As much as you may be thinking about – or worrying about – money, I am here to tell you that you can relax. There will be plenty. In terms of your resources with others, Mercury just went direct here (June 22) – it was in retrograde and causing mischief the whole of June – so shared funds, too, will get cleared up as June ends.
You’ve probably already been thinking, what is going on? Remember, there are SEVEN retrogrades affecting the rest of your chart. Little can go forward in life with so many planets and asteroids going backwards. Jupiter, Saturn, Neptune, Pluto, Chiron, Pallas, and Juno.
Particularly, look at where Jupiter retrograde is in your chart. For you, Scorpio, it is in your fifth house. Don’t move too fast in this area during Jupiter’s retrograde cycle June 20 – October 18. The rewards will come in this area – Jupiter is profitable and provides – but better later than sooner. In other words, you get more the longer you wait. And because it is Jupiter there will be an element of luck and synchronicity to it.
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 non 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.
You accomplish miracles.
July’s all about clearing ancient stuff up.
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!
