October 23 – November21
For you, 2014 is a year during which you’ll reap the rewards for what you did or accomplished during the past year or so. That may not seem likely at the beginning of the year, but you can rest assured that your efforts have not been in vain.
All the efforts that you invested in certain activities will begin to bear fruit. That said, you may need to make minor changes in your life plans, which could have far-reaching results.
This is due to the influence of Saturn, the most practical planet. Saturn is positioned in Scorpio, having moved into your sign in October of 2012, and
The new year is going to be an interesting period of growth
it remains there until just before the end of 2014 – December 23 – although it returns for a brief period in the middle of 2015.
It takes Saturn about 30 years to go through the entire zodiac, and so the two-and-a-half years or so it spends in each sign tend to be powerful ones for the sign in question.
Saturn is the planet associated not with what we want to do, or even enjoy doing. Rather, it’s about what we need to do. That may sound a bit grim. The fact is, often when Saturn is positioned in a particular sign, things don’t go according to plan. But it’s those changes – even unexpected developments – that end up being beneficial. They offer far more rewarding lessons than if things had gone as anticipated.
As a Scorpio, you’re inquisitive and keen to know what’s going on around you. Yet you’re also cautious and will avoid plunging into something unfamiliar until you’re either confident about it or feel you have some degree of control. While having a curious mind is surely a good thing, ensure you do not take big decisions without taking all aspects of an issue into consideration.
As you’ll have learned during 2013, often things do not go according to plan. If you look back at those situations in which you had to grapple with certain unexpected issues, you’ll realise that some of those are already proving to be far more beneficial than you would have imagined possible at the time.
When they arose, they may have seemed a nuisance. But as you’ve learned, this is a period that’s about growth and, as you’re discovering, those disruptions are by no means problems – rather, they’re leading to exciting events.
Not only that, with Jupiter, the planet that’s all about growth, development and good fortune powerfully aspecting Saturn in your sign twice during the year of 2013 and again in late May of 2014, unexpected opportunities or just plain good fortune, could lead to amazing developments. However, a flexible attitude towards the unexpected, a willingness to take chances, perhaps in a way you wouldn’t otherwise have done, will be the greatest skill you’ll develop. This influences your own world, the structure of your life and, equally, your relationships with others.
This year is also a time when you’ll be dealing with various duties, some of which you may not initially be happy to do. It may be that you’ll need to shoulder the burden or deal with circumstances that may seem unpleasant, or even unfair, but which actually challenge you. These challenges could force you to be disciplined, yet you’ll be aware that discipline will result in personal growth.
Knowing this, be very aware that when eclipses in April – particularly the eclipsed New Moon in your sign on October 23 – take place, these aren’t just about changes, they’re about an alteration in your perspective and your point of view.
They could lead to some minor hiccups in your lifestyle, but tough and challenging as they may seem at first, remember they are simply tests to help you improve yourself and put you on the path of growth.
