Dear Scorpio, this week focusses on your area of communication, agreements, the home and family. Up to the 16th, it would be wise to avoid getting touchy with work colleagues and job demands. Why not talk things through and get a better understanding of what is required from you? Health problems could also arise unexpectedly. The 17th sees a powerful New Moon in conservative Capricorn, your 3rd solar house. There is a stellium of planets on parade in Capricorn, and it is not going to be an easy journey, as intrigue and exploration take you out of your comfort zone. What a start to the New Year! It will call for rational thinking and greater mental concentration, even being detached from your everyday affairs, but avoid being too narrow-minded or fixed with your ideas. Review your personal emotional needs and balance them with your intellectual desires, as you endure the pressure to make decisions. Try to avoid taking on more than you can handle, including studies and demands by the family, children and other relationships.
On the 18th, beautiful Venus dances into unconventional Aquarius, your 4th solar house. With the Goddess improving the atmosphere on the home front, it's time to be with your family, close friends and loved ones. Entertain at home, do something special, cook someone's favourite meal, or just delight in trying out different recipes, making preserves and jams. This is the perfect time to try out your redecorating ideas and give your home a look of beauty and appeal. The garden could do with a makeover. Try planting your favourite bulbs or other seasonal vegetation.
The Sun follows through to Aquarius on the 20th, and during the next four weeks you will enjoy a change of pace, as you start concentrating on the domestic scene, family relationships, real estate, property and family agreements. It will give you a chance to make changes around the home. Right now, you gain your sense of identity from being with people that you know well, so it's a great opportunity to arrange a big family gathering or spend more time with your closest relatives.
