Today's Astro Highlight for Scorpio from Cafe Astrology
June 23, 2018
There can be fear of change at the root of disagreements or tensions early today, dear Scorpio, as Mercury opposes Pluto. Differences of opinion can escalate now as others may be clinging to their views, or you could feel offended if they're not embracing your ideas or trusting what you say. You're challenged to grow through your conversations or exposure to different or new ideas, opinions, and methods. Remember that there are no winners in arguments where growth potential is nil. Problems related to communications, learning, or transportation can come to a head now. Challenge yourself to reframe your thinking rather than hold onto an idea or belief for dear life. As the day advances, it may be all too easy for others to touch upon your sore spots, although the result may be that you take necessary actions to firm up a vulnerable area of your life. The Moon spends the day in your sign, reinforcing both your sensitivity and courage.

(Scorpio 24 October - 22 November)
Saturday 23rd June
You may fear that your words will be misunderstood by someone who seems on edge, yet this doesn't mean that you should keep quiet. With expressive Mercury making an awkward link to powerful Pluto your guide planet, this may be the time to speak up, especially if what you have to say is also in other people's interests, and could clear up an issue to everyone's satisfaction.

This Month: Scorpio
June 2018 Scorpio Monthly Horoscope: June brings a strong push towards looking within for answers, dear Scorpio, as well as for the seeking out of deeper involvement in (or commitment to) a project, venture, or relationship. You're not interested in fluff at the moment as you pursue more meaningful or absorbing experiences with the Sun in your intimacy sector until the 21st and Mercury there until the 12th. As such, some endeavors are likely to fall by the wayside.
You can be giving a lot of thought to a private or hidden matter, or you may be moved to speak about something personal, particularly around the 4-5 when the Sun and Mercury join. This superior conjunction is a time for clearing the air. You might reach conclusions about a relationship or yourself, as you see a matter more clearly. It's a stellar time for bringing up a topic that typically is difficult to discuss because it's complicated, taboo, or sensitive.
Even so, Venus continues its transit of your solar ninth house until the 13th, and this encourages a more active or carefree expression of your feelings. You can have a stronger desire to learn, expand your knowledge and experiences, as well as to do different things. You could find it easier to attract who and what you want during this cycle. You're more inclined to make beneficial connections in places of learning or while venturing beyond your usual routine. You are looking for more unique and interesting activities and ideas, and you tend to see your relationships as learning experiences during this cycle. Mercury moves into this sector on the 12th and then the Sun on the 21st, effectively extending an adventurous theme. In fact, as June progresses, you are increasingly more focused on the future.
Nevertheless, there are two significant retrogrades in June. The first is not as impactful. Neptune turns retrograde on the 18th as it does each year for about five months. In the days surrounding this shift, keep in mind that there can be a temporary loss of faith in a creative project or romance. This disappointment will ultimately work in your favor if you allow the process to play out and get in touch with deeper needs and desires. People may be extra sensitive and could be reading situations poorly just for now. Take things easy and trust that ultimately you'll feel stronger for learning which dreams work for you and which may be undermining you!
The second retrograde involving Mars is more significant. For one, it's not as common, and for another, Mars is one of your planetary rulers. Mars will be retrograde for about two months -- from June 26th to August 27th. Even so, you're likely to feel some slowing down before the 26th. For the first seven weeks of the retrograde (until August 12th), Mars is retrograde in your sector of home and family. Tricky energy can be experienced with family or involving domestic affairs, and later on, with communications. Watch for passive-aggressive behavior. There may be a need for home repairs, and it's a good time for taking a good hard look at what you might do to organize your home life better and make it a happier place. Certain endeavors may not go as planned, and there may be a need for a "plan B." This may not the best time for beginning a long-term relationship or returning to an old one, but it's a fine time to look at things from a different perspective. Patience is a real virtue now.
Besides affecting the physical and mundane affairs surrounding family and home life, retrograde Mars can also stir up some buried emotional frustrations. Issues that may have been overlooked or that you thought had been resolved long ago can resurface now. Challenges mostly revolve around home, family, work, or health. Family tensions and possible home repairs cannot be escaped, but a change of scene from time to time can help your overall mood. Despite small inconveniences, you're on a path to new and improved home life and relations with family. This can take a few months, but the work you do now will be rewarded. This is a good time for dealing with buried anger and resentment, as well as for reviewing and fine-tuning projects around the home.
Venus moves into your career and reputation sector on the 13th, and the weeks ahead are suitable for public relations and appeal, or for a more relaxed, satisfying time relating with higher-ups and business associates. Your reputation can get a boost now.
A grand trine on the 19-20 can present wonderful opportunities. It can be a time of natural, strong confidence that is radiated to others, and also easy channels for communicating your ideas. Your perspective and sense of humor are appreciated and noticed. You do everything with creative flair. A romantic conversation or thoughts can figure strongly now.
Around the 21st, passions tend to run high, but satisfying them may not be straightforward. Try not to stir the pot and avoid confrontations until you know where you truly stand on an issue, as things can escalate quickly at this time. It can be challenging to be indifferent towards others, but it can be emotionally freeing to do so from time to time, as you can too easily get all riled up and this can interfere with success and happiness. Impatient or immature reactions can figure strongly now. Consider being kinder to yourself by looking the other way when it is appropriate to do so.
The last week of the month brings your needs for life experience, learning, and excitement to the fore. You may be looking for ways to add to your life experience through travel, learning, mingling with others, or various forms of adventure-seeking. The routine elements of your life seem to be more drab and dull in your mind's eye now. From the 27-28, a Full Moon occurs at the same time as the Sun opposes Saturn. Both events occur yearly but rarely happen at the same time. A responsibility, limitation, restriction, or rule can make itself known. If you've been procrastinating on paperwork, errands, and other daily duties, then it can come back to you at this time. A project may need some adjustments to fit the constraints of time and energy. The strong urge to move about freely and enjoy new experiences can be temporarily hampered by the need to catch up on your obligations. Or, fears of expansion or insecurities about your knowledge limit your choices now. Negative reviews or feedback might ultimately motivate you to tighten up your work or brush up on your skills. However, if there's no lesson in it, do your best to discard negativity.
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
