Welcome to January and a whole new year, Scorpio. Despite the horrors of 2020, you did your best to end the year on a hopeful note. As the sign of death and rebirth, you understand transformation and know that the only constant is change. Scorpios tend to experience a lot more of it than most, and the optimist in you hopes that the pandemic and racial reckoning will lead to political progress.
On Wednesday, January 6, one of your ruling planets, warrior Mars, enters sensual Taurus and your 7th House of Partnership. Mars rules how we fuck and fight. At best, this transit means there’s hot, passionate sex coming your way. At worst, it means you might be bickering with a partner soon, but knowing this may be coming means you can try and prevent it. Keep your Scorpio stinger in check by layering on the self-care. When you’re happy, you’re less likely to lash out at loved ones.
It can be hard for a Scorpio to accept love due to your suspicious nature. You tend to self-sabotage as a result. On Friday, January 8, the lover planet Venus enters hardworking Capricorn and your 3rd House of Communication. Scorpios are the detectives of the zodiac, but that means that if someone upsets you, you may spend the day poring over their social media feeds looking for evidence against them rather than communicating your feelings directly. This transit asks you to stop acting passive-aggressive and simply speak forthrightly.
Also on Friday, January 8, communication planet Mercury enters logical Aquarius and your 4th House of Family. Especially in a world of social distancing, the importance of community has never been more clear. Don’t screw up an important relationship by acting jealous or petty. This only makes it more important to state your needs directly, which you’ve been working on lately. Just keep up the good work, whether it be through meditation, therapy, or other methods that have been working for you.
Uranus has been retrograde since last August, helping you get involved in politics, community organizing, or anti-racism work. This revolutionary planet helps open our eyes to the wrongs of the world and encourages us to help right them, and since it’s been retrograde, we’ve all felt especially pressured to engage in this work. It goes direct on Tuesday, January 19, helping you relax a little. However, this doesn’t mean you should let yourself become complacent to the evils of the world.
