Areas of Expansion in 2013 for Scorpio: Intimacy, Finances, Education, Travel, Adventure, Worldview
Your Scorpio 2013 Horoscope points to areas of life that are destined to expand and grow.
Until June 25, 2013, your intimate life continues to enlarge and bring you some joy and new discoveries. During this cycle, you learn to embrace inner change in order to feel more empowered. There may be more opportunities to find support, financial and/or emotional, but you should be wary of living on credit and borrowing too heavily from the future.
This influence began last June, but may have been dormant in the last quarter of 2012. February of 2013 begins with a wonderful attitude and you can continue to grab opportunities that help you to feel on top of your life and empowered. Conversations are deep and lead to discovery. Sexuality is richer. There can be benefits and support coming your way through others, whether it's money back from the government, you have an easier time getting loans or mortgages, a partner's income increases, or you inherit something valuable. Combining your own resources, talents, and/or money with a partner can improve your own financial outlook. There can be a big change in your finances, and some shuffling around necessary. You might also work with others' money or talents during this period.
Potential negatives: Taking on too much debt or relying too heavily on others for support.
In January and March especially, you would be wise to avoid taking risks with money, and possibly even your heart and body. Otherwise it's a strong period for opening yourself up to others and for feeling more confident about your own depths.
From June 25th onward, your belief systems, learning experiences, and hunger for adventure begin to grow and expand at a rapid pace. This is a time in your life when you don't sweat the small stuff as much. You see the broader perspective on life, and you generally feel supported, so that smaller inconveniences don't stress you out quite as easily. Your positive outlook is fabulous during this cycle. Learn as much as you can now, in preparation for the next cycle beginning in July 2014 that puts your career on center stage. You'll want to be prepared!
You might consider fine-tuning your natural talents and skills with higher education or experience during this cycle. You could be putting more money into these pursuits, educational, spiritual, or travel, or there can be some import-export focus in your business right now.
New learning experiences as well as "life" experiences (travel, adventures, contacts with others of a vastly different culture than yours, and so forth) are likely to emerge. Over the course of the coming year, you might have the opportunity to reach a broader audience. You might choose to learn a new language or take on other studies. Be cautious in August, however, when you could experience resistance from others, or when gossip could be part of the picture. There might also be some challenges managing your daily life during this period and you could be lured along a path that has you neglecting important duties and responsibilities.
However, for the most part, you are likely to take advantage of this period in your life. July can be especially strong for connecting with others romantically or creatively. This influence will be in effect until July 2014.
Areas of Contraction and Lessons in Simplicity: Personality, Manner, Body, Outlook, Personal Image
Your Scorpio 2013 Horoscope points to areas of contraction, restriction, and necessary "slimming down" in order to test for stable foundations. There are always areas of life that require more simplicity. Tests may be part of the picture as you learn that life with only growth and expansion can run away with itself.
The area of your life that requires a "back to basics" approach is the sector that rules your personal mannerisms, personality, image, and appearance. It also rules how you initiate things -- your first impulse for coping with day-to-day demands. There may be tests of sorts in these areas of life, as if the universe is checking that the foundations are strong. Things built on weak foundations may very well crack under the pressure of these tests. Those that are strong will endure and strengthen.
This influence began October 5th, 2012, and is with you until September, 2015. It can be felt most strongly earlier or later in the cycle, depending on when you were born.
During this cycle you are likely to be more cautious and, at times, pessimistic. Illusions about the self, the body, and personal abilities will no longer be tolerated. The end result is a newfound identity and a realistic understanding of the self. In terms of career and projects, outward signs of progress may not be as forthcoming, yet the work that you do during this transit will lay a foundation for future success and progress!
It's a strong time for literally slimming down if that's a goal. You can more successfully begin new and improved health regimens, diets, and the like, simply because it is a time when you look in the mirror and see yourself clearly -- instead of what you want to see. You can be more serious during this phase, with more concern for your responsibilities and duties. You are getting in touch with your inner strength. This is a grounding energy that gets you back in touch with reality.
Try not to come across as a heavy during this period -- not everyone is going through the same cycle at the same time as you. However, this influence in 2013 tends to be quite positive. Others are seeing you as more responsible, and you might attract a special admirer in part because of this. You are inclined to view creative projects in a more practical light, and could quite successfully work on bringing more structure to them, building a strong foundation for future profits. A pastime can be turned into a profitable venture. You can work harder and with more concentration on personal projects at this time. Some of you could become authorities or masters at a particular skill or topic. Self-discipline comes more naturally.
Strength of conviction can be especially strong in March and September-October. This is also a good time for communications. July can bring recognition for your work or ideas. Sibling relations may be improved this year. Others tend to respect your opinion and view you as an authority on certain topics. The best way to handle Saturn's transit through your sign is to meet your responsibilities to the best of your ability. Do take a closer look at the areas you've allowed to slide, and listen to your feelings of disappointment, but don't let this turn into regret or resentment. Instead, focus on making improvements and keep in mind the long-term. Short-sightedness now can get you into trouble.
Areas of Excitement, Innovation, Independence, and Speed: Work, Daily Routines, Service, health, Self-Care
Your 2013 Scorpio Horoscope points to areas of your life that seem to speed up so that you are able to take some risks, innovate, and revolutionize.
In March 2011, you entered a lengthy period in which your work, daily routines, and health may be unpredictable and unusual, but also inspiring and exciting. You can bring fresh insight into your work now, although you might be impatient with rules and schedules. Daily routines can be chaotic and your energy tends to be up and down. Ultimately, you are looking for a more authentic expression of yourself on the level of work, and while it can be a little chaotic for now, you are learning to tap into your "inner genius". While some of you may be more interested in alternative health practices, many of you may be ignoring important health routines. Avoid carelessness with your health. Sudden changes or upsets are more likely in May, August, and October-November, when chaos can rule in your daily life (but only if you let it). Watch for provocative or temperamental comments, which can get you into trouble with co-workers, neighbors, and relatives. You have a low threshold for boredom this year, and while inner restlessness can certainly push you to make important changes, it can also attract some trouble if you are living on auto-pilot and not consciously directing your energies into productive channels.
Areas of Change, Purging, & Transformation: Family, Inner Foundations, Home Life, Finances
Your 2013 Scorpio Horoscope reveals areas of life in which change and transformation take place. It's a time for "out with the old, in with the new".
Communications, learning, and daily life continue to transform this year. This can be an excellent period for studies, writing, and communicating, especially in March-April and September-October. However, there may be some challenges in May, August, and November, due to a chaotic daily life and lack of structure. Sudden events or circumstances can leave you feeling a little insecure.
In 2013, your personality and your partnerships are evolving in important ways. How you define "me" and "you" is transforming. Issues of personal courage, confidence, and independence come to the fore in 2013. Matters surrounding personal appearance, your body, and your image become especially important. Basically, you will be learning to stand on your own two feet! For some, marriage or divorce will be an issue. For many, carving out a personal identity that includes a significant other who furthers their own personal growth will come into focus. Nevertheless, with the North Node in your sign all year, your challenge is to learn how to rely on yourself, which ultimately will bring you joy and opportunity.
