2013: Scorpio Overview
2013 has your name written all over it, Scorpio. Thirteen is the number of the Death archetype in the tarot card attributed to your sign. It's about the death of the outworn aspects of yourself and your life, while the sunrise of rebirth is always waiting on the horizon. Transformation, metamorphosis, passion and sexuality are all heavily pronounced this year for you. Saturn, the great taskmaster, has taken up long-term residency in your stars until 2015 to give you and your life a complete makeover. Add to this the fact that your ruler, Pluto, is in what is known as a 'mutual reception' with Saturn (mutual influence by means of swapping signs) and the force for rebuilding your life from its very foundation is doubled. This is a year for uncovering your greatest resourcefulness, and relinquishing any skeletons from your psychic closet. Death and rebirth become daily themes as you shed layers upon layers of the former you.
The speed at which your life is moving, evolving and changing is unprecedented, Scorpio. The total whirlwind that began in the latter half of 2012 continues as the eclipse points impact your sign directly. Watch for key events in May and November as signposts for more change to come. There's a good chance you'll change jobs, move, start or end a relationship or simply start an entirely new chapter of your life under this intense influence. Trust that whatever you're putting your passionate energy into this year will indeed build out to something lasting and beautiful.
This could easily be one of the most exhilarating and spiritual years in a long time, Scorpio. Jupiter supports your quest for deep change and self-awareness by working on the Eighth House (Scorpio sector) of your horoscope until June. Delve into your own secret depths and discover how powerful you really are. Few are as tough and resilient as you are. It's actually your sensitivity and vulnerability that make you strong. At the end of the day, you may be the most emotionally courageous sign there is. You heal others by showing them that it's safe to confront their own darkness as you have done. This is the greatest gift and strength you'll be sharing with many in 2013.
It's good that your child wants more out of life. Today, you may find they have a gift list a mile long. Impress upon them that first they must give more -- smiles, help, good choices -- to receive such rewards.
Your ego gets a jolt late in the day -- but that can be a good thing! You may find that you're better able to get perspective on a recent issue that has been troubling you. Roll with it!
National Fried Shrimp Day brings out the rebel in you. Can you possibly come up with a baked version that tastes just as good as fried? You've set yourself the challenge -- of course you can. Tip: horseradish mustard or sriracha sauce makes shrimp taste even better.
Take the organization of your wardrobe to the next level. Do your hangers already match? How about arranging the clothes hanging on 'em by color (in the order of the rainbow, of course) or by brand? One-up yourself!
