Scorpio Weekly Horoscope from July 26 to August 1
Radar in on those mega-goals! On Tuesday, July 27, analytic Mercury lands in Leo for its annual visit to your tenth house of career success. Your eye seldom veers from the prize, but this yearly turbo-charge helps you rethink your trajectory to make sure you’re on the right path, going at the right pace—and working smarter, not harder! As the messenger planet, Mercury also reminds you that communication and equitable professional relationships are essential components of career success. Between now and August 11, make it a priority to reconnect to ambitious friends you’ve lost touch with and to get a little more personal with people in your office and industry. Since the tenth house rules public image, this is also a great time for a style update or to work with a coach to refine your messaging. If you’re the boss of Scorpio, Inc., use this transit to review ALL your branded assets. You don’t have to reinvent the wheel, but if your logo, graphics or overall look could stand a refresh, research the right service provider and plan to invest a little in this fundamental update.
On Wednesday, expansive Jupiter—which has been retrograding through sensitive Pisces and your passionate fifth house since June 20—reverses back into Aquarius and your domestic fourth. If you’ve been living it up in an attempt to make up for lost (lockdown) time, this backflip might slow your roll. But if you’re being honest, Scorpio, you might welcome this temporary reversal. Your home life has been in some sort of flux ever since Jupiter first entered Aquarius (December 19, 2020, to May 13, 2021). Some Scorpios might have signed a lease or gotten a mortgage on a new space or commenced a major renovation. Or you might feel like a fish out of water in your digs but don’t know where to go.
All kinds of home and family issues are up for review during Jupiter’s reverse commute, which is in effect until October 18. Try to lift any undue pressure and give yourself the luxury of taking your time to research and do some blue-sky thinking about what this next chapter of life might look like—and who you want to spend it with! Be aware that your already-keen sensitivity to others’ feelings will intensify, so to keep your power intact, you may need to enforce new or stricter boundaries. Your emotions may be more raw than usual, but this three-month cycle could spur you to join a support group or deep-dive into self-help books, which could be a blessing—and NOT in disguise!
On Thursday, your co-ruler Mars returns to Virgo and your communal eleventh house for the first time in two years, reviving your team spirit. If you’re a member of an organization, you might suddenly feel compelled to get more involved or seek a position of greater responsibility. Look for ways to interact with a wider array of people to avoid getting stuck in an echo chamber. Diversity will keep your creative wheels turning! Until September 14, you may be invited to lend your skills in new ways—and doubly so until August 16, while friendly Venus is also in service-oriented Virgo. If you feel like that can be helpful, just do it and don’t get hung up on compensation. There are many kinds of rewards, and not all of them are financial. Passionate Mars could get you fired up for a cause that you feel is well worth fighting for. Just be careful not to let emotions get the better of you around people who don’t share your perspective. Make this your mantra: Live and let live!
