With Venus in fiery Sagittarius as the year begins, the practical and economical side of your personal relations will be in focus. If you’re with a partner then the simple business of working on sound economic lines and keeping life organized and ticking over will be the themes to follow. There will be concern over money, business and financial prospects. As there is tension from Saturn in Virgo to Venus, a lack of funds or support could prevent you from going ahead with a designated project or interest. Prepare for a separation or a falling out with friends. For the singles, don’t choose romantic prospects from among friends. There may be a relationship prospect you just can’t have. Be wary of the secret liaison! It will start explosively but end unfavourably. Play it straight this year. If you just go about the simple business of life, you’ll make the right connection in the end. Some of you may simply prefer the solitude of home and personal life. Others will take up the pursuit of important interests or group-oriented activity.
Dealings with money begin with a hiss and a roar. Warrior Mars moves in
reverse in Gemini, clashing with Pluto in the last degree of Sagittarius
right at the turn of the year. There will be intense negotiations or
dealings involving finance, seeing you taking a risk or pushing matters
to the limit. Unexpected pressures may push you or miscalculation will
trouble you. Make sure you’re clear with estimates of what you need and
what you’re capable of doing. There may be a serious wrangle or stoush
over money. There may be a testing proposition you just have to take on.
Professional contacts or career matters will be wound up in this
somehow. This may also involve investment in lands or property. Past
concerns or connections will feature.
Make sure you understand all the communications and the paperwork with
anything you’re putting money into or involved in. Don’t overreach and
watch for the people or forces opposing you. The great god ‘Gazump’
could descend to obstruct you. You will do well if things are handled
correctly. Money will be made. It all depends on the astuteness of
instinct and the ability to negotiate. Play it tough, Scorpio. That’s
the way you like it! Mars moves forward from Jan 30th so the immediate
pressures will begin to ease. Remain wary of risks. Test the waters and
find out what you’re getting into first. Don’t get out of your depth
just because you failed to learn the requirements.
Warning: this year could also bring erotic encounters that may be hot
but may also turn testing or even torturous. Whether above board or
secret, some of you will arrive on the doorstep of a relationship of
intensity. The energy is strong in the course of work or business. A
separation from someone may be a feature. Money or fiscal dealings may
somehow be involved. Don’t let things get out of hand until you know
you’re on safe ground. Others will renew the erotic side an existing
relationship. Someone from the past may return to your life and heat up
those fires once more.
