Scorpio Monthly Horoscope

January 2020

It’s time to share your ideas with the world, Scorpio—ready or not. January is a preview of what the new decade holds as a pileup of planets in Capricorn activate your third house of self-expression and community. The Sun is making its yearly visit to the Seat Goat’s sphere until January 20, which already has you in a chatty way. On top of that, you’ve got communicator Mercury, outspoken Jupiter (through December 19), heavy-hitter Saturn AND transformational Pluto all in Capricorn as January begins.
There’s no stemming the tide of ideas you’ll have, so why not start spreading them around? Start locally since the third house rules your neighborhood and immediate surroundings. No need to travel far to find kindred spirits! For Scorpio business owners, think pop-ups, meetups or “experience marketing” to introduce people to your offerings. Get creative with social media, from clever Tweets to podcasts, and flaunt your originality.

On January 12, a showstopping conjunction (meetup) of Saturn and Pluto lands in Capricorn, giving your intellect some extra heft. An idea that’s been brewing below the surface could finally break ground and become real as unconscious Pluto (your sign’s ruling planet) gets prodded into visibility by materializing Saturn. These planets unite every 33 to 38 years, making history when they do. What monumental message will you share now, Scorpio? The last Saturn-Pluto conjunction in Capricorn was in 1518, and you don’t want to wait another five centuries to get your genius concepts out to the world.
Saturn and Pluto combining can also come in like a wrecking ball of sorts, demolishing anything that no longer serves you. Outmoded opinions, friendships and beliefs will not survive this conjunction. Hidden information could come into the light, and secrets may be revealed. Shadowy Pluto’s been spinning this web since 2008, when it first entered the depths of Capricorn for a 16-year visit. With the bold Sun and messenger Mercury pinging both Saturn and Pluto, you’ll get a shot of courage to help you face anything, should you have to defend your honor or grapple with information that’s hard to digest. (We’re not saying you will, Scorpio—we just never know what Pluto’s got buried in the depths.)
Of course, you might not have to wait for the Saturn-Pluto conjunction to find out. On January 10, the decade’s first full moon arrives in the form of an illuminating lunar eclipse in Cancer and your outspoken ninth house. The truth-telling floodgates could open WIDE! Remember, Scorpio: If you dish out that #RealTalk, you can expect to hear the same in return. And at a jaw-dropping eclipse, it’s not likely to be delivered gently.
The ninth house also rules travel, publishing and entrepreneurship, and this game-changing eclipse might bring an opportunity in any of those realms, and it could happen out of the blue. Before you know it, you may be rolling the dice on a startup, hopping on a standby flight or seeing your name in the headlines. Stay alert for big opportunities to grow and expand.
Not that this is totally breaking news. The full moon is one of the final eclipses in a series that’s been rippling across the Cancer/Capricorn continuum since July 2018. These eclipses have been activating your axis of communication, travel, neighborhoods and long-distance affairs. Over the past two years, you’ve been finding like-minded people in unlikely places, connecting across time zones, cultures and other perceived “divides.” Writing, teaching, learning and sharing your message have all been part of your expansion—and will continue to be until this eclipse series ends mid-2020. Keep exposing yourself to new ideas and people who don’t necessarily agree with you. Evacuate any echo chambers you’re in. The more (factual) information you take in, the better you’ll be able to guide people and give informed opinions when the world looks to YOU for answers.
On January 20, the Sun slips into Aquarius and your fourth house of home, family and emotional foundations for a month. Take a mental break and focus on self-care. Prioritize your feelings (they matter, Scorpio!) and make sure you’re on an even keel. But brace yourself for interruptions from loved ones on January 23, when the Sun locks into its semiannual square with disruptive Uranus in your partnership realm. Someone close to you could push your buttons, provoking an intense emotional reaction. Do your best not to take the bait, Scorpio.
You can really settle into that relaxed realm on January 24, when the year’s first new moon lands in Aquarius and your domestic sphere, kicking off a six-month growth cycle for home, family and foundations. Get started in earnest with plans to move, renovate or expand your family. A relative, possibly your mother, could figure prominently into events today. This new moon also launches the Lunar New Year. As we welcome the industrious and nurturing Metal Rat, you’ll be busy forging connections that go the distance. Devote yourself to building a nest—and a nest egg—that will protect you and the people you love for years to come.
