Scorpio - August 2019
Hi Scorpio! Your career and where it’s taking you will be a priority for the first three weeks in August, as the Sun shines the spotlight on your hopes and dreams! This is a time to really show those you want to impress that you are up to the job and have all the skills they are looking for in an employee. If you have been working on important projects, you are more likely to receive the recognition you desire now; leadership opportunities will also be prevalent. The new Moon on the 1st is a fabulous time to apply for a new job or request a promotion, and with Venus and the Moon linking up here, there is a great deal of creative energy around you to support you in your choices. Chances to excel at mediation, and demonstrate your skills at negotiation and social networking, will also be offered now. Mercury is also back on track here from the 12th after his recent retrograde spell, and decisions which didn’t go your way during the first two weeks in July should be reconsidered in a more positive way now.
A second new Moon blesses us on the 30th, this time in your house of friends, and the Moon forms connections with all of the personal planets Mercury, Venus and Mars at this time, to send you a new and very important friendship. With north node energy circulating, you could meet this person on a trip or holiday, or through a study course, and the rapport between you will be instantaneous. The Sun, Venus and Mars meet here in fact from the 24th through to early September, and you will also find yourself a central figure in existing friendship groups too, as your warm and inspirational personality pushes you into the forefront of decision making. A good friend may also turn into a love partner at this time, as strong emotions and feelings of affection turn romantic.
Uranus turns retrograde on the 12th in your house of relationships, so prepare for a bumpy ride with partners as we head towards the end of the month. Their erratic behaviour could confuse you, as you’re suddenly not sure what they’re about. Once we reach September and Uranus picks up speed in reverse gear, you will finally see the light and be able to discuss those issues of freedom that seem to be at the heart of all your partnerships right now. Clashes between Uranus and Venus during the week of the 1st to 8th could see feelings blowing hot and cold in a love relationship, as all of a sudden something that attracted you seems irritating. Mercury and Uranus also lock horns here from the 12th to 20th, a week of unpredictable revelations in your love life and conversations about some very open and honest subjects.
The full Moon on the 15th will illuminate your domestic world, so if you have any skeletons hiding in that closet, rest assured they will be coming out now! It’s a good time for total transparency in this part of your universe; say what needs to be said and if you can, forgive or seek forgiveness so that everyone can move forward. With Chiron retrograde in your house of everyday chores and commitments throughout August, responsibilities to loved ones could weigh you down at this time, and you may feel you are overloaded with tasks at home, with no-one really supporting you. It’s guilt that is driving you here; take a break and let others fend for themselves for a while. They’ll be okay! Have a marvellous month!
