Scorpio Monthly Horoscope

March 2017

Power up the passion! With the luminous Sun cruising through Pisces and your fifth house of romance, glamour and creativity until March 20, you almost couldn't ask for more inspiration, Scorpio! Single and looking? Make the most of these three weeks, as the amorous vibes are soaring. Even if you're just "window shopping," flirt to your heart's content. If nothing else, it'll give your own unconscious the message that you are indeed in the mood for love. You'll exude confidence and sex appeal, which—let's face it—is like catnip to potential mates. Because the sign of the Fish is so tender and emotional, couples can connect on a deeper, more soulful level (but you may have to make the overtures). Creatively, you're fired up. Don't focus on the final product. Just enjoy the process—and keep it to yourself until you're sure you're ready for the big reveal.
Bonus inspiration comes from expansive Jupiter, which is parked in Libra and your twelfth house of divine vision and mysticism all month. You don't have to know where your brainstorms are coming from. Just go with them! You might not trust your judgment while the red-spotted planet is retrograde (until June 9), but reframe this as an exploratory time during which you don't need to commit to anything. Jupiter will tangle with rebellious Uranus and power-monger Pluto in March, and these clashes could wildly disrupt the balance in both personal and political arenas. Over the course of a year, Jupiter will have three rounds of these celestial clashes. The last two were in November and December 2016, so expect another round of whatever came up over the holidays. Hopefully this midpoint will bring more resolution than revolution—but it's likely to be a mix of those two at best.

The first of these planetary collisions occurs on March 3, when Jupiter forms an opposition to disruptive Uranus in Aries and your efficient sixth house. You know you have a lot on your plate, but you might be tempted to blow off an assignment and get lost in your daydreams. Resist! This is actually a time to double down with work and tap that Scorpionic intensity. Plan to reward yourself with a getaway or retreat when you clear this hurdle, and then hunker down now. The office could be a hotbed of activity, with fires sparking left and right that only you can put out. Of course you'll do your best to control those conflagrations, but you're only one person. One of the "gifts" of this transit is helping you accept that there are things outside the Scorpio sphere of influence, and it's important to be okay with that. This realization is the prerequisite to breaking the chain of micromanaging. Trust doesn't come naturally to your cynical sign, but there ARE people who meet your standards. Your mission: Find them…and delegate! This can save you time, money, energy—and your sanity. Look back to December 26, 2016: That was the first Jupiter-Uranus clash in this year's series of three (the next is on September 28). This only happens once every 14 years, so make sure you're paying attention and learning your lessons!
You could meet some likeminded souls on March 12, as the Virgo full moon lights up your eleventh house of friendship and group activity. Wherever you go, the atmosphere will be positively electric, and some of the folks you connect with will have the potential to make the cut for Team Scorpio. (So give 'em a chance!) Make a point of socializing more today. Call a spontaneous meeting at work, chat in line at the coffee shop, RSVP yes to an industry event. Your intense sign famously dislikes small talk, so go deep out of the gate. Mention a passion project you're working on (and might need help with) or "go there" with politics. This kind of seriousness will act like a filter, screening out the lightweights. Got stress? Sweat it off with a heart-pumping workout or let your wilder, more audacious side out to play tonight.
You'll be ready to gallop ahead on a big professional project once the focused Sun moves into Aries and your hard-working sixth house on March 20. Aries brings unparalleled "get the party started" energy. If you've been procrastinating because you weren't sure where to begin or didn't have all the pieces in place, follow the Ram's lead and jump in horns first. You just have to break the ice and the rest will flow organically. The sixth house also rules systems and organization, so save some energy for a little (or a mega) decluttering mission. You think better when your desk, laptop and home are tidy and clean. Time spent clearing out junk is an investment in your immediate future. So carve out an hour here, an hour there for going through the piles and stacks and throwing out, recycling and donating. At home and work, examine the nuts and bolts of HOW you operate, find the slack and eradicate it! Make it your aim to have Team Scorpio running like a well-oiled machine. Health is the domain of the sixth house, too, and you know what THAT means! Coffee and donuts are not a legit meal, Scorp. It's time to get clean, lean and green with your diet. Find some kind of movement or exercise that you actually enjoy and build it in your week. You don't have to train for a half-marathon: A weekly dance class and some stretching in between is a great place to start.
If you find yourself nodding yes but doing nothing, circle March 27 on your calendar. That marks the year's only Aries new moon, which turns up the heat on health and fitness, organization and your desire to perform service. The moon is in very good company: It's joined by the Sun, Venus, Mercury and Uranus, and it'll be hard NOT to kick off a six-month wellness cycle. Take half an hour today to set some concrete intentions, including milestone dates that will let you chart your progress. Do you want to kick sugar or gluten? Go veg? Maybe you DO want to run a half-marathon! Write it down in a special journal you keep just for your wellbeing and fitness goals and progress. Is your career satisfying your soul? If not, find a way to volunteer, do pro bono work or consult for a do-gooder organization you respect. Don't focus on "where it's going." The journey is far more important than the destination with this one.
Jupiter gets into another cosmic kerfuffle on March 30, when he squares off with your co-ruler, shadowy Pluto, in Capricorn and your expressive third house. Jupiter is famously candid, and when he locks horns with the dwarf planet, there's no telling what might come out of your mouth (or typing fingers). This makes for some stormy, unpredictable weather on the communication front! This is the second of three such Jupiter-Pluto alignments. The first was on November 24, 2016, and the next will be on August 4. A sibling or colleague could trigger your fury, perhaps poking at a repressed childhood wound. You might not be able to bite your tongue, and the resulting showdown could be epic. Even if damage is done, you can keep it from getting worse by taking a step back and (privately) examining your feelings. It's not easy, but you're a great detective, Scorpio. Try to tease out your old emotional baggage from the present scenario. Chances are what really got to you lies far deeper than the other party's comment or action. On the flip side, if someone lashes out at you, give them the benefit of the doubt (within reason). It could well be that they're in the grip of a deep, unhealed wound.
