This week is all about absorbing the vibes from the first Supermoon of the year, which took place on the first day of the year. This supermoon took place in the sign of Cancer, a fellow Water sign, which means that as a Scorpio, the first week of 2018 was most likely quite emotional, and full of feelings. This second week of 2018 will feel more grounding, as you learn how to use these emotions in an empowering way, rather than letting them overwhelm you.
On Tuesday, the Moon enters Scorpio, helping you see things that are hidden. No one will be able to hide secrets from you — they usually aren’t, but your psychic powers are heightened around this time. If people have been opportunists, and you’ve been in denial because you love them, you’ll be able to face the situation head-on by mid-week, and even have a bit of empathy for the parties involved. Not everything is black and white, and there may be elements to a situation that you’re missing, so even if your intuition is telling you something, be more of an observer this week. Next week’s New Moon will be the best time to make major decisions regarding social relationships and personal dynamics.
Once the Moon enters Sag this weekend, you’ll be more adventurous and whimsical. You may be in the mood to plan your next trip or escapade by this time, but it’s important for you to not only think about the big picture, but break down this adventure into practical action steps. The energy of Mars in Scorpio and Jupiter in Scorpio will help you think out the details of a situation, and the fact that Mercury, the Planet of Communication, enters Capricorn on Thursday also increases your ability to stay focused on your goals and take things step by step. Yes, 2018 is full of massive change and endless blessings, but you still have to put in the work. Take time this week to avoid succumbing to busy work. Do the work that makes you feel alive.
Romantically, Venus’ placement in Capricorn has made you a more serious lover, and ironically also a sexier lover. The more you feel like people are taking you seriously and respecting your needs, the more vulnerable you become. However, if you find that you’re still putting up your guard this week ask yourself what you’re so afraid of in the first place. The Universe responds to the vibration you put out, so if you’ve been having fear-based thoughts about love and relationships, this week is a good time to get to the root of them. Next week’s New Moon will help you set clear intentions about the type of love life you want to create and sustain.
All in all, Scorpio, you should enjoy the more focused astrological energy that this week provides.
