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.
You're going to feel quite creative today. Use your talent to encourage the kiddos to do something fun. Begin singing a new song or choreograph a dance or draw with crayons -- let them take it from there.
Your love life is on the upswing today -- so enjoy the good times! Even if you're single, you should hit on a new lead or meet someone new and cute. Chances are you're due for a break!
Romance may be in the air today, so prepare to connect with someone. Dining at a Turkish restaurant could be a fun, low-key first date. Your companion will be impressed with your choice, especially after sampling the tabouli, mercimek kofte, and baba ghanous. And who doesn't love hummus?
Why create more consumer waste? Be creative! If you need to give someone a gift, think about homemade options. Face it -- people really don't need more stuff. How about a dozen of freshly baked cookies or prepare a special batch of rose-infused water?
