Mars and Pluto, your co-rulers, square off on February 1, creating power struggles, confrontations, and other control issues. You’re the master of wanting to be in charge, but what happens when you can’t be? Try to worry more about your own goals and less about other people’s, Scorpio. The emotional moon moves into kindred water sign Pisces on the fifth, giving off compassionate, empathetic energy. You understand what someone who’s suffering is going through, and you want to help. It’s your turn to be the hero. Powerful Mars spends time in fixed Taurus starting on February 14, so you go for what you want with a vengeance. If someone wants to see your bad side, all they have to do is challenge you. Game on! A Venus-Pluto conjunction on the twenty-second gives you a magnetic attractiveness that’s hard to resist. Are there better-looking people in the room? Maybe. But there’s just something about you that everyone can’t take their eyes off of. The moon spends time in your sign on February 23 and February 24, helping you finish the month with confidence and power. You know exactly where you want to go and exactly how to get there

When your home planet Mars is in determined Aries at the beginning of the month, you can use its powerful energy on January 1 and beyond to accomplish some major tasks. Your competitive drive plus confidence makes you an unbeatable force. Uranus goes direct in powerful Aries on the sixth, putting change at the top of your to-do list. As a fixed sign, you don’t always embrace turbulence, but right now you’re determined to do what it takes to get to the top. The sun-Pluto conjunction in earthy Capricorn on January 11 intensifies your urge to figure out what’s really going on, but your curiosity might rub some people the wrong way. Are you being nosy for the right reasons? Not everyone thinks so. You’re willing to see things from a different perspective when the sun enters offbeat Aquarius on the twentieth, but you’re still set in your ways. Will you change your mind about a longstanding belief? You’re willing to debate it, and that says a lot. The moon spends time in your sign between January 26 and January 29, making everything slightly more intense. Your eyes are truly a mirror to your soul, so if you don’t want people to know what you’re thinking, put on a pair of shades.

Can you escape the hassles caused by Mercury retrograde backing into your sign on December 1? Probably not. But guess what? Mercury goes direct by the sixth, minimizing the fallout. If you continue to rely on your advanced intuition, you should be fine. There’s a passionate Mars-Neptune conjunction on December 7 that encourages you to live out your fantasies, but it’s important to take precautions before jumping in. Is what you pictured in your head the same when you experience it in real life? Not necessarily. The moon enters energetic fire sign Aries on the fifteenth, so you’re up for whatever challenge life brings your way. The competition for something you really want might get tough, but you know it can be yours if you put forth your best effort. The sun enters conscientious Capricorn on December 21, at which point you take full responsibility for your actions, both past and present. You’re the first to admit when you screw up and the first to make amends. Your ruler Mars visits confident Aries on the thirty-first, giving you a positive glimpse of the year ahead. Things look promising. First thing on your agenda? Overcoming your fears!

Go deep, Scorpio. There is a new moon in your sign on November 7, shifting the emphasis from the external to your subconscious. Your thoughts can lurk in the shadows from time to time (like everyone else’s), but your deep interest in the underworld, unsolved mysteries, and crime isn’t as dark as it might seem. Make sure worried friends understand that your intense curiosity isn’t necessarily linked to obsession. The sun-Pluto sextile on the eleventh gives everything a positive spin and shows you what you can accomplish in life if you reach for the stars. You won’t always get exactly what you want, but you won’t get anything if you don’t at least try. You’re affected like everyone else by the Mercury retrograde cycle starting on November 16, but your determination makes it slightly easier for you to cope with interruptions and mix-ups. You probably won’t get what you want through sheer force, but you have other persuasive skills that will help you get through this pesky retrograde cycle just fine. A Mars-Jupiter square on the nineteenth makes large-scale success possible, but you might have to start small. Taking the time to make a game plan now will help you rack up more points later.
