Today’s Astro Highlight for Scorpio from Cafe Astrology
April 21, 2018
The Moon moves in harmony with your sign today, dear Scorpio, as it transits your sector of spirit. You’ve had some valuable days for much-needed introspection, but you’re now increasingly focused on what’s to come. It’s not only about escaping the ordinary, but it’s about expanding your experiences. There can be an agreement or cooperation with someone today that leaves you feeling supported and confident. As the day advances, passions rise. The areas where you’ve been feeling frustrated or where you’ve been growing resentful can be triggered, and conflicts can result. Differences in opinion may figure strongly now. Feeling overloaded or impatient can lead to mistakes if you rush things, though, so it may be best to try to tame tendencies towards stubbornness. There are ways to make positive changes shining through today.

The Astrology of Today – All Signs
- APRIL 21 The Moon spends the day in the sign of Cancer, drawing our strong attention to our personal lives, attachments, home, family, and familiar places and faces. However, it opposes Saturn, Mars, and Pluto, suggesting some tension due to our drives to perform or the demands of our responsibilities. We can be competitive and perhaps impatient. However, the Moon also forms a trine to Neptune and Jupiter, and we can find creative ways to express and satisfy our increased needs for predictability or comfort nevertheless. In fact, we can see our relationships as mutually beneficial and we're inclined towards togetherness and sharing as the day advances.

This Month: Scorpio
April 2018 Scorpio Monthly Horoscope: You begin April with a heightened awareness of your need to take extra downtime or moments to yourself, dear Scorpio. While this is important, April's larger themes are more about getting your work and health routines into order and focusing on your close relationships.
Mars is moving through your communications sector, igniting your curiosity and exciting you about various personal interests, communications, and learning or teaching all month. As quickly as Mars would like you to move, however, it aligns with heavy Saturn on the 2nd and then intense Pluto on the 26th. As such, for much of the month (from the 2-26), Mars can feel under pressure, confined, or restricted. This can be frustrating and even implosive at times, but you can make this energy work for you instead of against you by tapping into Saturn's and Pluto's positive traits, which include patience and determination. On the 2-4, some tension is possible, but it can also motivate you to make improvements. You have added power for actualizing your dreams, but you are faced with the need to take responsibility for past mistakes, follow the rules, and put in hard work. News can arrive that prompts you to get serious about a matter, or conversations occur about serious issues. You are likely to recognize that there are plenty of details that need attention, and old problems can crop right back up and slow you down. Approach problems one at a time and step by step, even if you'd rather skip through things more quickly. There can be miscommunications and some delays or repairs to deal with now, but ultimately improved channels for commuting and communicating, so be as patient as you can.
Mercury turns direct on the 15th on the same day that a New Moon occurs in your sector of health, work, and habits. After these dates, you're in a strong position for a new initiative along these lines, whether this is a new job or additional work, a new work project, a service contract, a health and wellness program, or a commitment to learning new skills. Before then, there can be a significant focus on learning from the past or doing editing work and making adjustments. Some of you may be waiting for medical tests or information that will help you know your next step.
For most of the month, Venus is in your partnership sector (until the 24th), and the Sun enters this sector on the 20th, stimulating special attention to one-to-one relationships. You are in a great position to benefit from your relationships with others, to attract helpful or companionable people into your life, and to enjoy pleasant company. It's also a fine time to see where your life may have become a little off-center and see ways to balance it out in crucial ways.
A lovely window from the 10-14 brings a delightful flow of energy and warmth in relationships and possible excitement and enthusiasm for an idea or project. Love relationships, partnerships, and close friendships are favored. There is a desire to move ahead, get things done, and not merely wait for things to come to you. Relationships can improve as you notice things to appreciate about someone that you may have previously overlooked. This is a good time for creating, writing, and making art or music, or for appreciating and enjoying imaginative art, theater, writing, and music. You might take action to correct things that have been making you unhappy. You are finding ways to make communications of all kinds (speaking, writing), travel, and transportation work for you, but you should wait for after the 15th to launch initiatives along these lines. Your personality comes through beautifully in whatever personal interest or project you're involved with now. This is a time for appreciation and praise from others, as well as fabulous rewards for your efforts. Especially as the month advances, you're using the power of thoughts and words to transform your life for the better.
On the 22-23, you're in an excellent position to get the ball rolling or go out on a limb to move something forward. Your confidence helps you get where you want to go or to make a meaningful connection. On the 24th, Venus moves into your intimacy sector, and this encourages you to take a project or relationship a little further. Your passions are stirred.
The 25-26 brings Mars and Pluto together - something that's been pending for awhile before this date. You've been particularly ambitious and passionate about your projects, studies, and ideas, and this is coming to a head. There can be a significant intellectual competition or a general feeling of being mentally wired, ready to take a project or situation to a whole new level. There can be a tendency to push too far or to test yourself and your limits which shouldn't be taking too far. This combination has the potential of being either very productive or destructive.
There is a Full Moon on the 29th that occurs in your sign, pulling up feelings that are now impossible to deny! This is a nice, supported Full Moon which means you are more likely to feel equipped to do something beneficial with your newfound discoveries or epiphanies. In fact, you may very well dream up new plans or redirect your energies as a result.
This Year: Scorpio
2018 Yearly Horoscope Overview
The year ahead is in many ways a banner year for you, dear Scorpio. You are finding more personal joy and opportunity, and you’re projecting yourself with increased confidence, humor, and authority. Somehow, you’re managing to express yourself both warmly and authoritatively. It’s a year for feeling more respected.
At times, you may be guarding what you communicate a little too closely to the point of self-censorship, but in moderation, this may very well work well for you now with two heavyweights, Saturn and Pluto, in your communications sector. You’ll also want to watch for a tendency to come across scathingly or to think negatively or cynically at times when these planets are clashing with others in your chart.
You’re challenged to do some critical streamlining and simplifying in your daily life. You may be working harder or smarter now, and have less time for idling, personal interests, and the like. You tend to have less time for acquaintances in 2018 and perhaps even for family at times. Small talk no longer seems to satisfy you, and you could feel quite a bit of pressure to make better and more efficient use of your time. You are also communicating with more authority, or honing your knowledge in a particular trade or area of knowledge/expertise this year.
Jupiter continues to move through your sign until November, and this is about positive new beginnings, turning over a new leaf, and expressing yourself without apology. Be proud of who you are. You’re in an exceptional position to update your image and to build personal confidence levels. You may be bringing more of your personality to your work or projects, and this is particularly rewarding and successful! Especially if you coach, teach, guide, or write, you’re in a great position to improve and advance in 2018.
This is also a good time for financial matters, and this theme will only increase later this year and through most of 2019. Besides putting yourself “out there” and expressing yourself with confidence, one of the best things you can do for yourself in 2018 is to fine-tune your routines, projects, and studies. You are in need of more structure when it comes to these things, and while it involves effort and persistence, you’ll thank yourself for doing it. Orderliness will be empowering, and paying closer attention to deadlines, details, and rules will help tidy up your own mind and emotions so that you feel freer to enjoy yourself when pleasure calls, which it is likely to do frequently!
The central message of 2018 and the next couple of years is to specialize in your studies or work, hone your skills, and lay the groundwork for future projects. While for some of you daily responsibilities or obligations to siblings, studies, and acquaintances increase, you’re doing important work for future security and success.
Towards the end of 2018, you’ll feel a stronger desire to feel comfortable, secure, and rooted. If you’ve played your cards right, a raise, bonus, substantial gift, or some other material increase can come into your life. Even if material benefits are not apparent during Jupiter’s transit of your solar second house from November forward, it can be a time of indulgence and abundance. It’s a great time to build on existing projects and businesses.
While in many ways this is a “me” year, the “we” part is likely to move away from status quo. The year 2018 hosts a retrograde Mars period (from June 26-August 27) and a retrograde Venus period (from October 5-November 16), pointing to some slowdowns, retro callbacks, and apparent backtracking when it comes to desires, feelings, and affections. In fact, Venus is partly retrograde in your sign. Uranus in your partnership sector for some of the year is more of a hint of things to come at this point, but it’s introducing a longer-term theme of excitement and a non-traditional approach to close relationships.
Home, family, and career matters require new beginnings or slate-cleaning this year. Balancing your personal life with professional responsibilities or outside interests is a big theme in 2018. Rewards are great if you can rise to the challenge with your duties, career, or public life.
Take full advantage of the Jupiter-Pluto influence active until September. It’s subtle, so you have to look for the opportunities, but it’s a time of personal empowerment through your communications, ideas, projects, studies, and connections. Connecting with people who help you further your goals and dreams is likely in 2018.
This Year in Love: Scorpio
2018 Love Horoscope for Scorpio
Jupiter spends most of 2018 in your sign, dear Scorpio, and this is a well-touted transit that occurs only every 12 years (approximately).
This Jupiter transit boosts your confidence, personal presence, and likability factor. People enjoy your company and are drawn to your positive energy. You feel more entitled to happiness and rewards, and this tends to bring positive opportunities into your life.
If you’ve done your inner “work” well, this can be an especially rewarding period. Your confidence in yourself and faith in the world are growing exponentially. You are more willing to enjoy new experiences and to rid yourself of those things that have been holding you back from truly living and owning your life. You are taking more “me” time.
The last time Jupiter transited your sign was from October 2005 to November 2006 (and before that, from November 1993 to December 1994). Jupiter transits are different for everyone– and it’s different for each person at different cycles in their lives — but it can be helpful to look back at these periods to see what was going on then, since similar themes may emerge for you this year. What’s unique about this one is that you have lovely support from Neptune in your romance sector as well as Pluto, your sign ruler. This suggests extra special allure, charm, and appeal and a good feeling of personal power during this period.
Keep in mind that although Jupiter transiting one’s own sign is generally considered fortuitous, it’s a more independent and freedom-seeking period than a relationship-focused one.
Saturn is now in your communications sector, however, until 2020, and while Saturn performs well here and you can gain a lot of ground in your work and with people in general, there can be times when you’re coming across more sternly or intimidatingly than you realize!
Your romance sector is Neptune and Jupiter-ruled. Neptune is a long-term guest in your romance sector, which tends to bring a transcendent quality…cont’d
