2023 Scorpio horoscope for love, career & money, wellness and friends & family. Plus how the major planetary transits will affect you.
Ready to turn your power back on? In 2022, many Scorpios went underground, and even felt invisible. While your mysterious sign likes to keep people guessing, this felt beyond your control—and it was. Good news for your 2023 Scorpio horoscope: In July 2023, you can emerge from this karmic cocoon, hopefully with stronger relationships and vibrant good health. Let’s show the world what they’ve been missing!
But before you leap into the spotlight, make sure your game is tight. Polish your presentation and tweak your talents to compete in the modern marketplace. (Training from a pro-level mentor or expert is advised.) Relationships could turn super-serious in 2023. Is it time to make this one official? The second half of the year sets the stage for that. Just don’t forget to have fun, Scorpio—a little lightness goes a long way.
In the spring, you may start gently snipping the cords with family, or transitioning into a more adult relationship with your clan. You can still maintain close bonds while setting boundaries that allow you (and them) to express your individuality. The ties that bind need not constrict! Your home also becomes a “manifestation station” so clear the clutter and create a space that attracts abundance.
Scorpio will be lucky with: Healthy living, relationships
Scorpio will be challenged with: Making time for fun, home and family

2023 Scorpio horoscope highlights
Relationships are supposed to be fun, remember?
Serious relationships are a Scorpio’s jam but with weighty Saturn plunking down in Pisces on March 7, careful that they don’t get so heavy that you forget the romantic parts! During this three-year Saturn cycle, you’re tasked with making magic, one conscious action at a time. That will be easy starting May 16, when adventurous Jupiter soars into Taurus and your coupled-up seventh house. Not only does this bring some breathing room to your bonds, but it might open your mind to new arrangements: long-distance, cross-cultural, LAT (living apart together).
If you’re a solo Scorpio, get yourself back into a seductive headspace so that you’re in the right “vibration” to attract amour. Start by moving your body and planting yourself in social situations where you can make friends who know someone they can fix you up with! If you’re on the fence about a union, you could hit the make it or break it point by the October 28 lunar eclipse.
Werk! Scorpios aren’t afraid to hustle in 2023.
Enterprising Jupiter zips through Aries, pouring high-octane fuel into your industrious sixth house. You won’t even mind the grind if you’re learning new things. With the karmic South Node in Scorpio until July 17, keep hustling quietly to monetize your passions or doing something that feels like “soul work.”
A breakthrough result could arrive near the May 5 Scorpio lunar eclipse! And once the destiny-fueling North Node heads into Aries on July 17, you’ll have 18 months of accelerated professional growth. Network like it was your side gig from June 5 to October 8, while enchanting Venus struts through your elite tenth house. The VIPs could get behind your vision. A past colleague could go to bat for you while Venus is retrograde from July 22 to September 3. Reconnect!
Trust your gut, Scorpio; good health starts there.
Vitality-boosting Jupiter revs its engines in Aries and your wellness zone until May 16, providing ample energy for fun, upbeat workouts and winter sports. Gut health will be especially important this year, particularly after July 17 when the lunar nodes shift into Aries and Libra—the rulers of your sixth house of digestion and twelfth house of elimination. Learn more than you thought you wanted to know about microbiomes and join a gym with a sauna for regular, detoxifying sweats. Hit the dance floor with a plus one when active Jupiter bounds into your partnership zone for a year this May 16. Who knows? With your competitive streak activated you might even win a mirrorball trophy!
Friends may come and go in 2023, Scorpio
Friendships are going through a transition this year, as your ruler, Pluto, makes its first sign change since 2008, moving from Capricorn and your outgoing third house to Aquarius and your intimate fourth. While this transit only lasts from March 23 to June 11, it’s the warm-up for a 20-year cycle of Pluto in Aquarius that kicks off again next year. Close relationships have always been your style, but this year, you could form a solid inner circle and build a stronger support network than you’ve had in a while.
Your 2023 Scorpio horoscope, by the planets
Jupiter in Aries and Taurus
Jupiter in Aries:
What’s the secret of success, Scorpio? While energizing Jupiter rockets through Aries
and your sixth house of wellbeing from December 20, 2022 until May 16, 2023 you’ll live by the words “healthy, wealthy and wise.”
Jupiter in Taurus:
The power of partnership becomes glaringly obvious starting May 16 when ever-expansive Jupiter marches on to Taurus, love bombing your seventh house of partnership for an entire year, until May 25, 2024. Where can you grab the reins?
Mars in Gemini
Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to take the risk of exploring your desires! Yes, we did say, “risk.”
Saturn in Pisces
On March 7, 2023, the cosmic taskmaster shifts into your fellow water sign Pisces and powering up your creative, romantic and flamboyant fifth house until February 13, 2026.
Although Saturn never gives away anything for free, this will be a much lighter cycle, with more opportunities to enjoy life’s pleasures—and far fewer existential crises and arduous unpacking of emotional baggage.
Pluto in Aquarius
In preparation for this tide-turner, you may want to start speculating on what “home” looks, feels and sounds like for you. (Feel free to click the heels of your ruby slippers three times if it helps.) Surprise: What you visualize may be a huge departure.
Venus Retrograde in Leo
Be strategic about every move during Venus’ retrograde from July 22 to September 3. This reversal happens every 18 months, causing roadblocks that aren’t insurmountable but can stop you in your tracks temporarily. Can you find the key to pushing past them?
Aries North Node
On July 17, the lunar nodes reposition themselves across your axis of health and healing—Aries and Libra—and help you integrate your insights into your self-care routines until January 11, 2025. Dialing down stress will be an especially important mission for Scorpios in the second half of the year. If you’ve been making too many sacrifices, you could hit a burnout moment. Can you find the remedy?
