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.
Someone might try to persuade you to take a financial risk. Fortunately, you're able to instantly spot any flaws in the plan. You save money in other ways, too, like when you talk the tyke into only one candy bar.
Your impulsive side comes to you in a new way today -- and it may cause some financial distress! If you buy something big, try to keep the receipt, as you're likely to want to backtrack soon.
Don't do things today just because everyone else is doing them. You know wanton eating and drinking will catch up to you, so don't let others influence you. That mountain of nachos may look tempting, but order a chicken burrito sans the usual fatty suspects. You'll feel a lot better about yourself.
Beauty isn't easy -- sometimes, you have to make yourself do what you know is best. So drag yourself off the couch to go to the gym and force your hand away from the chips and toward antioxidant-rich fruits and veggies.
