This week, you’ll be able to explore your more extraverted, social, bold, outspoken, confident and adventurous side. But the Aquarius energy from the Sun and Venus will balance out the restlessness and make your intellect a priority too. You’re curious to absorb new knowledge, expand your horizons, and look at life from a different perspective. Plus, Pluto and Saturn in Capricorn adds a grounded aura to the week, by asking you to slow down enough to figure out where all of this activity is leading to in the first place. You know that you’re on a roll, but where exactly are you rolling off to, Scorpio, and more importantly, why? These are essential questions to ponder this week.
By the morning of Wednesday, January 31st, once the eclipse strikes, you’ll have a clearer idea of where you don’t want to go. You may wake up on Wednesday and not want to leave your bed at all if you don’t like your job. If you do love your job, you’ll jump out of bed with a feeling that something amazing is going to happen to you this week. And it most likely will, if it hasn’t already. That’s because the eclipse is lighting up your career and social status sector, Scorpio. So if you’re happy with what you do, life is about to get even more exciting and you’ll be rewarded for doing what you love, by receiving even more opportunities to do what you love. But, if you feel bored, sad, lethargic, unmotivated or unhappy at work, this eclipse will wake you up and make you wonder: “what am I still doing here?” This may be the week you take job searching more seriously, and you don’t let yourself feel sorry for yourself. It may take a major wake-up call for you to get going though, such as losing your job or feeling less secure at your current work environment. Full Moon eclipses are about endings and closure, so you’re closing the chapter on an aspect of yourself this week — one that will lead to many new doors opening for you.
Venus in Aquarius has made you appear less sensitive romantically, but in reality you’re just taking more time to process everything you’re feeling, Scorpio. There’s so much going on in your internal world at once. This week, you will have to practice deep breathing and indulge in frequent moments of solitude as forms of self-care. These are profound tools for decreasing any anxiety that may come up. It’s still month 1 of 2018, Scorpio, so if you’ve been putting too much pressure on yourself to meet certain expectations, you can end up burning yourself out for no reason. This eclipse takes place while the Sun is in Aquarius and the Moon is in the opposite sign of Leo, meaning that you may feel internal friction at times when it comes to just doing you, or being there for others. The truth is, you don’t have to choose between both options, but you do have to vocalize when you need more support, space, or empathy. You can’t expect people to be mind-readers, Scorpio. If something’s on your mind, peacefully release it. The more you bottle things up, the more misunderstood you become, and the more frustrated you can be. This week, even what you may not feel ready to release will find a way to set itself free. Your body does not want to be weighed down by dead weight. It’s that simple. So have those breakthrough conversations with yourself, and with your loved ones, your family, your bae(s) — just do it.
Mercury will also enter Aquarius on the day of the Lunar Eclipse, intensifying the collective, humanitarian vibes in the cosmos. Dedicate yourself to two things this week: your personal well-being, and doing something loving and kind for others. This isn’t something you need to think especially long or hard about — just do it naturally and when it feels right. Taking care of yourself also means addressing your own toxic behaviors and mindsets that are doing you more harm than good, It’s not enough to schedule a spa day or take yourself out to eat, Scorpio. You also have to be aware of your emotional triggers, and times when you push people away as a way to not face what exists within yourself. This eclipse has to do with how you see yourself, and how the world sees you as a result of your own self-reflection. Very deep. As a Scorpio, depth is your friend. So peel back the layers when it comes to who you are and who you’re evolving into. You hold the cards in your hand. But you’re letting the Universe deal them. Do you understand now, Scorpio? You are the Universe, and you’ve already dealt the cards of your dreams. You’re just having a little fun by pretending you’ve forgotten the path it takes to get there. But with every step you take this week, you remember...
