Week beginning Monday, 11 December 2017

The planet Mercury is going backwards in your 2nd House, the part of your chart which is all about cash, property, possessions, self-esteem and values. That makes now the ideal time for you to have a rethink about all these subjects. Depending on your personal financial situation, there could well be questions about how hard you are willing to work for the life you want, versus how much you think you are 'worth' when it comes to the job market.

Month of December

Money -- how you spend it, how you make it, how you feel about it and who you want to share it with. These questions may be at the back of your mind all month. And they are questions which are well worth asking, because you might find yourself seriously rethinking your position on some of them.

Mercury, the planet of information, turns retrograde on December 3, making for three weeks of mild chaos. Since this takes place in the money sector of your chart, be prepared to take purchases back to the shop, check bills carefully and make sure your payslip is accurate.

Astrologers will always tell you to avoid buying big-ticket items at this time. This is emphatically so this year. At the same time, you may find some unexpected bargains if you buy something second-hand. The point with a Mercury Retrograde is that you are looking for do-overs. So use your imagination.

Mercury will stay retrograde until December 23, so don't be surprised if your Christmas stocking is filled with some familiar items -- yes, your friends and relations are just as likely to be re-gifting as you are. Since you are a likely to be reasonably meticulous in your record-keeping, you probably won't be the one to make the mistake.

Meawhile, the planet of benevolence and luck, Jupiter, is in your sign for a good long time, putting you in a position to be both wise and generous in your dealings with others. What is more other people will perceive you this way and may come to you for advice or a hand out. Being generous now will pay dividends in the future. But give with an open heart and no strings attach, or you may be disappointed.

Mars, your ruler, will give you a big boost of energy from mid-month too. This is especially potent this year when combined with that lovely warm energy from Jupiter. Spread the joy, Scorpio.

Ah, you deep and dark, sexy and mysterious Scorpios! Have you ever met a prudish Scorp? I really don't think I have. You just can't help but exude something a little taboo. Those of your sign tend to be passionate and single-minded, capable of depths of emotions. You need intensity the way flowers need rain. You have a sharp mind and - sometimes a sharp tongue. If someone can't see the obvious, staring them in the face, you want to whip back the veils of illusion, to improve their view. You want to go to the heart of every matter and you won't shy away from the truth just because it's not exactly what you or others want to hear.

You're a Water sign and ruled by Mars and Pluto. As I've mentioned many time in many columns, the fact that your ruler Pluto was demoted to being a Dwarf Planet is immaterial to you. Pluto is the dark side of your nature - your shadow self. Having Pluto 'less visible' works for you - you get to be just that little bit more covert and even subversive.

And yes, like the Scorp stereo-type say, you are sexy, because sexiness comes from being real - and that's something that comes naturally to you.

Scorpio also rules detectives, undertakers and sex workers, by the way. Please don't take offense! It's just that you can be like a detective - going deeper and further into the shabby and shady alleys of existence, where lesser souls fear to tread. Undertakers? You are less afraid than most others of the concept of mortality. In fact, it may even fascinate you. And sex workers? Scorpio rules sex, and not just the love-making side of it!

You love what is hidden - you want to uncover it. And you also love to hide. Careful not to succumb to the temptation to bury the truth!

You like to be alone, with your thoughts, as much as you like to share others' company. You are enigmatic and truly mysterious. Yes, you have that famous sting in your tail, but you are also a healer. Spending time with a Scorpio is rewarding. You may not always show your friends and lovers the 'sunny' side of life, but with your ability to handle extremes and your capacity to feel profoundly, you teach the rest of us a little more about what it means to be human - dark side and all. Try not to be obsessive, though. Learn to forgive and forget where possible. And allow your watery side to carry you along life's ebb and flow.

You're not interested in the superficial which is why your relationships run so deep. You relish privacy and can take a secret to the grave. You have oceans of tolerance inside you, which is why people love to be around you. You accept what others find unacceptable. You make it OK to be scared. You don't shy away from the shadow - rather you quest for truth. You're not interested in skirting around tough subjects and - if you are truly, madly, deeply Scorpionic - you may even be blessed with magical powers.
