What have you been doing? How come you're living in the middle of a bombsite? It won't clear up itself, you know. And if you think it'll put people off from spending time with you, you've clearly forgotten that your cleaning skills aren't their top priority - they never were. Start by downloading my free list of the 2018 New and Full Moons - you can do some amazing things with it, including timing your New and Full rituals and ceremonies, launching new projects and doing forgiveness work to release negativity which inevitably builds up.

Week beginning Monday, 22 January 2018

This is the week to have a very deep think and some meaningful conversations with people who matter to you, about subjects that matter to you. The overall communications vibe is very good for everyone, but for you, it's particularly promising, thanks to the planets in your Communications Zone. Chances like this don't come along every week, so talk through whatever you need to discuss, personally or professionally. You'll steer 2018 towards where you want to go. It really can happen.

Month of January

You're likely to charge into the New Year with a bang yourself! The world feels alive with possibilities. Mighty Mars teams up with grand Jupiter at the top of the month in one of his home Zodiac signs--yours! You indeed have the determination and passion to fulfill many of your biggest dreams. But plot out your New Year's resolutions carefully. Don't try to do everything at once. Or overcommit to too many projects and endeavours because you have the energy to do it.

Serious Saturn's new turn in his home sign of Capricorn will probably bring clarity and improvements to how you communicate. Yet, it'll help to keep a jovial and light attitude about your pursuits. Otherwise, you might come off as too gritty and serious to others. This will probably but even truer when communicative Mercury pairs up with Saturn on the 13th. Be clear and precise. But a softer and calmer touch will do more to enlist the support of others than laying out the stakes as if the life of the world depends on it.

The energy of the month will shift around the 18th.Intimate Venus pulls you more toward home and family. Perhaps you'll find it easier to direct much of that zest from earlier in the month into beautifying your home. Or you possibly enjoy more relaxing and pleasurable times with family. When the Sun moves into your home sector, you'll probably feel the need for even more light and cheer.

On the 31st, Mercury joins the Sun and Venus to inspire more grounding and homeward thoughts. Yet, on the same day, we have the first full moon eclipse of the year. As the Leo moon rises in your career area of the heavens, you likely feel a tug to come out your comfort zone and seek greater recognition or authority for your work. The challenge in the months ahead will be how to keep grounded as you reach higher.

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.
