There’s a familiar emotional energy while communicative Mercury passes through Pisces starting on February 3. You and the Fish both like to stay in the background, and your subtle communication style reflects this now. Texting is your preferred method of keeping in touch. A full moon in dramatic Leo on the eighth plays well off the logical Aquarius sun. Now is the time to go over the last month and see what has come to fruition, and what hasn’t. Your first instinct isn’t always to make a big deal out of your success, because then you’ll also have to broadcast your failures. This isn’t a good time for your pride to take a hit. Your home planet Mars starts hanging out with responsible Capricorn on February 16, so get ready to get serious about your life. If you’ve been letting things slide lately, this transit won’t let you be lazy any longer. A Mars-Uranus trine on the twenty-first urges you to break free from the restrictions you’ve been under lately, even if you placed them on yourself. If you’ve been on a strict schedule of studying, working, or taking care of other people, it’s time to leave your routine and have some fun. You aren’t usually a rule-breaker, but you find yourself wondering “what if” a lot now.

Your powerful home planet Mars pairs up with energetic Sagittarius on January 3, encouraging you to explore and expand your world. If you’ve been wanting to travel, this is a good time to do it. If you don’t have any vacation time yet, start planning for later in the year. It’s fun to have something to look forward to that will satisfy your wanderlust! Conversational Mercury crosses paths with your co-ruler Pluto on the twelfth, bringing intensity to your thoughts and communications. You’re set on getting to the bottom of things, and you won’t settle for seemingly false excuses like “I didn’t get your text” or “my e-mail must not have gone through.” The moon passes through your secretive sign on January 17, so you’re extra determined to keep things to yourself. You don’t open up easily, and this lunation doesn’t encourage you to do so. You like to remain a mystery, and this moon certainly won’t force you to show your hand. The sun shines brightly in the Water Bearer’s house starting on the twentieth, at which time you’ll be more willing to switch things up. You have a desire to express yourself creatively now, and you like to show how unique your talents are. It’s true, Scorpio. You’re one of a kind, so why not give the world a taste of the real you?

There is a complexity and seriousness to your thinking during the Mercury-Pluto sextile on December 2. Your probing nature makes you want to find out life’s deepest mysteries, and you won’t stop until you solve the hardest puzzles. The Gemini full moon arrives on the eleventh, helping you clear your slate of excess projects. Your mind is active and alert, but you’re easily distracted. You could use help now from someone who is organized and disciplined behind the scenes while you stand on stage coming up with the grand ideas. The sun enters ambitious Capricorn on December 21, so for the next month you’re focused and driven when it comes to your goals. You’re also very realistic about what you can accomplish now and aren’t likely to bite off more than you can chew. You take your responsibilities seriously and surround yourself with like-minded people who want the same success from life that you do. Thoughtful Mercury pairs up with serious Capricorn on the twenty-eighth, so your thinking becomes methodical and practical. You’re ready to weed out the excess and focus on what really matters. You still have a good sense of humor, but you know when it’s time to joke around versus when it’s time to get down to business.

When your co-rulers Mars and Pluto square off on November 5, there are power struggles galore. You have a strong urge to accomplish your objectives, but you can’t seem to do that without running into obstacles. You don’t live for controversy or confrontation, but you aren’t about to let go of something you really want without a fight. The sun-Pluto sextile on the thirteenth is much more positive because it allows you to grow from past experiences. You still have a driving urge to succeed, but this time you know there are limits to what you can and can’t do, and you’re more prepared to use your inner strength rather than outside force to get where you want to go. Things get interesting when your aggressive home planet enters your focused sign on November 18, because you love to draw other people out despite the fact you want to remain hidden and mysterious. You’re a very trusted friend and family member now. Anything anyone close to you tells you is bound to remain a secret. Dreamy Neptune goes direct on the twenty-seventh, putting an end to a particularly bad situation. But did it actually end, Scorpio, or are you just ignoring or idealizing it now? And is there really a difference? You might be suffering from a delusion, but at least you’re happy.
