Scorpio Monthly Horoscope August 2016
Monthly Horoscope for Scorpio signHealth is still delicate until the 23rd. Long term there is no major problem, but short term your energy is not up to its usual standards. You can enhance your health in the ways described last month until the 3rd. Detox regimes, good mental health, more attention to your lungs, small intestine, arms and shoulders are good. After the 3rd, pay more attention to your stomach and breasts. Diet becomes a health issue after the 3rd. Mood control is important. Avoid depression or negative emotional states as much as possible. Prayer, ‘speaking the word’ and metaphysical therapies are powerful during this period. But after the 23rd your normal good health returns.
You will be amazed at how aches, pains, flus and other discomforts simply vanish as the planets shift position in your favour. Perhaps a new pill or therapy will get the credit, but this is only a side-effect of the change in planetary energy. The main health danger is from the 7th to the 13th as Mars, your health planet, makes dynamic aspects with Uranus and Pluto (Pluto is your personal planet). Here the danger is not from disease, but more from injury or accident. So this is a time to be more mindful when driving, more mindful around the house. It is a time to avoid conflicts, confrontations and daredevil stunts. Under these aspects, you and people around you tend to ‘over-react’ to things. Watch your temper as well. (If you read the newspapers during this period, you will see what we are talking about.)
Family members and parent figures also need to be more mindful this period. You are still in a yearly career peak until the 23rd. Career progress is being made, but perhaps with the sacrifice of earnings. Glory often leads to gold, but not straight away.
Your love planet is still in your 10th house until the 22nd. Thus you are still allured to the rich and powerful. There are romantic opportunities with bosses, superiors and with people involved in your career. You are mixing with high-status people these days. And the connections you make are helping your career. You advance your career by social means – by attending or hosting the right parties. Much of your socializing involves corporate or industry events. After the 23rd your love planet moves into Virgo and your love attitudes change again. Now you want friendship with the beloved. You don’t want to be ‘unequally yoked’ but prefer a relationship of peers. The main love challenge now is a tendency to perfectionism in love.
Venus is not very comfortable in Virgo. Venus likes to come from the heart, but in Virgo she is too intellectual, analytical and critical. So you need to watch for excessive criticism – especially of the destructive kind. As you know very well, romance is 90 per cent magic – 90 per cent mood – and only 10 per cent rational. And if you are too much in the head, you kill the mood of romance. Finances are improving after the 22nd. However, on the 30th Jupiter will start to go retrograde – its first retrograde this year.
You’ve made great financial progress this year; many new developments are happening. It’s time to take a breather, take stock and determine where you want to go in the future. Even if you know where you want to go, you need to review the ‘way’ to get there. Jupiter will be retrograde until the end of the year (December 25). This is not going to stop earnings, only introduce glitches or delays – complications that you never planned on. You won’t stop your financial life, but there is a need for more caution and homework when it comes to big purchases, big investments, major financial decisions.
