Scorpio Monthly Forecast for February 2018
On the 7th and 8th, fortunate energies are stimulated. Emotional levels expand under this influence and you can gain greater emotional commitment from those with whom you share close relationships and have no trouble attracting love and affection from many others as well. Emotional satisfaction can be found. The 13th to the 15th marks a good time to review your plans, relationship and obligations with family members, property, values and possessions.
The 15th in the Western Hemisphere sees a New Moon and partial Solar Eclipse in Aquarius, activating your 4th house of the household, family, fruits of the soil, and new beginnings. This lunation in the Eastern Hemisphere coincides with the Chinese New Year on the 16th, heralding the year of the Dog. It is also known as the Spring Festival in modern China, or simply the Lunar New Year, an important Chinese festival celebrated at the turn of the traditional Chinese calendar. Celebrations run from the evening preceding the first day, to the Lantern Festival on the 15th day of the first calendar month.
This Solar Eclipse in Aquarius is conjunct Gienah, the Swan's Wing, a star of Venus and Mercury in the constellation of the Swan. It follows a total Lunar Eclipse in your mid-heaven at the end of last month, which hit your career aspirations. It will affect the ensuing period of six months, signalling a break from the past and a brand new beginning in your life. In bronze age myth, Jupiter seduces Leta, the queen of Sparta, in the form of a swan. This led to her giving birth to the beautiful Helen of Troy and to the twin sons of Jupiter (mighty Pollux , the immortal Twin and Castor, the mortal Twin) and to Clytemnestra, queen of Mycenae, who murdered her husband Agamemnon after he returned from the Trojan War. How the stories ring! At the eclipse, Jupiter is in Scorpio, so you must confront the obstacles blocking your path to success; obstacles that could be caused by your own ego, self-indulgence or overestimation. However, If you are prepared to act with honour, you will pass the tests with flying colours and obtain your goals in the process. Introducing some aspect of tradition, structure and substance to the artistic endeavours and social situations leads to triumph. Putting the same into diplomatic gestures, counselling, public relations, partnership and joint ventures may also lead to success in these areas.
There's no Full Moon this month due to the Full Moon and Total Lunar Eclipse last month in Leo on January 31st.
On the 18th, the Sun swings into sensual Pisces, your 5th house of romance, creativity and speculation, joining Venus and Mercury, in the spirit of the Swan's Wing. It is an ideal time for love and romance. Your creativity will be on call over the next four weeks, with social engagements, entertainment, recreational fun and activities with children all mixing in the pot. Your magnetism and sexuality will draw love like bees to a honeypot. Get your artistic skills out into the open; enjoy music, dancing and projects that can express the ingenuity of your inner child. You become rather more interested in fun and games than taking care of business, or other serious matters. You see children more as extensions of yourself than as individuals in their own right and you perceive their actions, good or bad, as a direct reflection on you. Romantic encounters involve more ego-gratification than emotional commitment. Should your creative projects be criticized, or romance become difficult, your suffering arises more from the bruised ego than the broken heart.
On the 18th, Mercury moves into slinky Pisces, your fifth house of romance, children and speculation, followed closely by the Sun. Creative writing or speaking projects may be part of the scenario. Either the information you receive, or the way you make use of it can enhance your personal image and reputation. A successful meshing of ideas and methods may see advancement in your position and an invitation to become the spokesperson of a group. Increased communication or travel with a romantic partner, children, or social groups is indicated. Plans and discussions, even business transactions, may feature entertainment projects, social events, children's education and activities, or speculative ventures.
On the 10th, the Goddess dances into romantic Pisces, so if you'd like a little more romance in your life this is the time. Vacations, socializing, hobbies, pastimes (and taking a few risks!) are favoured by the cosmos. It's easier to establish or improve relationships with children and expand the field of your social contacts. The influence of Venus awakens your sensual side and will strengthen your connection with a romantic partner, especially on the weekend of the 24th. However, extravagance and overindulgence in your pursuit of pleasure will call on your legendary self-discipline. Imagination and artistic urges are stimulated and can see a period of successful creative endeavour, either on your own, or with a partner.
