According to Susan Miller. I don't think you should buy a lottery ticket, though, everyone will be doing that.
Incidentally, I introduced another Scorpio I know to this site last night. He got all excited. I...did not so much.
This year promises so much acclaim in your career! You will see the truth of this on March 3, when Jupiter (good fortune), now in your fame and achievement sector, receives a rare aspect from Uranus, planet of surprise, in your workaday project sector. When news comes, it will arrive quickly and be completely unexpected, arriving like a lightning bolt! Expect a generous reward for all the superior performance you've put in. The harder and smarter you worked, the bigger your reward will be now.
Not only did this not happen, I am in the doghouse. Uh...NOPE.
I did see an offer for free career counseling that day and e-mailed about that, but we'll see.
A few days later, March 10, Mars will send glittering beams to Jupiter from your assignment house, so clearly the work you've done and work you will be assigned in March will lead you up the ladder of success. August will be another big month for career news, so keep putting the pedal to the metal so you can rack up victories before Jupiter departs to Virgo, August 11. Once good fortune Jupiter leaves your career sector on that date, he will not be back for twelve years. While you will continue to climb the ladder of success, you won't have the glittering conditions you do now - make the most of them.
Against all this, in the background, a golden triangle
To quote the Scorpio buddy: "a golden triangle? Really?" "I don't think so," I said. "Probably a metaphor."
will appear in the heavens in March, linking your work projects (which should be quite divine now), your reputation and status (which is climbing by the minute), AND your earned income. Although employers seem to be tight fisted and unwilling to part with generous salaries, this month you seem to be persuasive enough to get your due. You can show VIPs that a lesser talent would not be able to fulfill the vast requirements of the position in the way you can do. Paying you more, in the big picture, would actually save the company money, for paying people who can't produce would be throwing money away. Even if the lower paid workers can produce, it would take an inexperienced person double the time to get the work done. This month you appear to be on top of your game and in line for the top job AND the right salary.
That would be nice, but I will not hold my breath.
You may encounter only one day that may give you pause - March 15 - when Pluto, your ruler, will be in sharp odds with Uranus. A writing assignment or contract you are drafting for a client or proposed partner may not bring accord, so avoid this day and stay to yourself.
Which I can probably do very nicely on a Sunday. Though I'm still trying to figure out how one avoids an entire DAY.
Pluto's involvement suggests others will use their power and authority to get their way, and Uranus' involvement will bring an unexpected twist, but not necessarily the one you want. You'll have to stay on your toes on March 15, and even if you hide under the bed, aspects like this have a way of finding you. You are shrewd and resourceful, so stay confident. If anyone can handle a difficult person, it's you.
So if difficult aspects find me under the bed, how can I avoid them?
You need a fun social life, and the universe agrees. Send your RSVP to a party you may be invited to or a friend's offer to gather up the gang for a great dinner within four days of the full moon in Virgo, March 5.
Okay, THIS IS ACTUALLY HAPPENING on the 7th. With RSVP and everything. Dinner and dancing. Woot! So something worked out!
Alternatively, you may be attending a friend's wedding, and if so, you must go! Saturn will support this full moon, so among the people you meet, you may make a friend that will remain in your life a very long time.
That would be nice.
Group and community activities are also favored in the first ten days of March, so if you plan to give a charity event or help a humanitarian cause that you feel strongly about, as a committee chairman, give it all you have to give, for it will be quite a success.
*shrug* Don't really feel strongly about any charity.
An even bigger event is about to take place in your love life, with the solar eclipse, March 20. This will be a new moon on steroids, powerful and giving, and could help you find your one true love, or draw you closer to someone you've been dating. Neptune will fall close to this new moon, showering it with inspiration. Neptune will be beautifully angled to Jupiter and Saturn, giving you a sense of security and have you enthusiastic about your future together. If you are coupled up and hope for a baby, this same new moon could summon the stork.
Scorpio pal was excited about this. But I'm me.
Everything about this eclipse will be positive. Even at work, you may be approved for a highly creative project that allows you to show off the full range of your talents. (Your fifth house of love and children also governs your creativity, as this house covers the birth of all new forms.) Committed couples will find their relationship proceeds smoothly, as Venus will enter your relationship / marriage house on March 17 to stay until April 11, and this month send sweet vibrations to Neptune in romantic Pisces.
"I don't think you are unlucky in love--I feel you have had hard aspects. You have hosted Saturn opposed to your Sun since October 2012, considered one of the hardest aspects possible and on top of that you have had a series of eclipess in Taurus-Scorpio which added even more stress. Wow, that's difficult. By not being involved with anyone lately, you may have dodged a bullet, because relationships could have been quite a concern. Your health may have suffered too. Saturn is moving to Sagittarius on December 23! Hooray! Be sure to read my December forecast on Astrology Zone and you will be dancing on the tables! Next year, after August 11 and continuing to September 2016, Taurus will be the most favored sign for love! Have faith! Love is coming!"
Hah, probably not for me....
"Hi Susan, good to know that your new med is working and hope you will be back to normal by 100% very soon. I am a Taurean female born on 24th April, out of work since 2009, struck with Cancer last year, finished with treatment & back to normal and need to get back to work. No luck so far, although attending interviews. When would a Taurus gets a good vibe from cosmos in relation with job front. Thank you in advance.A: Susan Miller
Today, Mars goes into Aquarius, perfect for you to find a job. You will have two new moons, the first, January 20, to help you! the second new moon (new moons bring opportunity) on February 18 isn't as well aspected, but nevertheless may help you. Plan to get a job soon because no special aspects will come after that. Take anything, but start working. The digital world, social media, the natural and social sciences, not for profit, or political work for a candidate would all be good areas to try."
And that's my birthday....
Both of these just make me cringe. Not just for the typos either. (Seriously, dude, proofread. Looks bad when you can't spell planet names right.)
TAURUS AND TAURUS RISING
Nobody's saying you're about to
inherit fifty mil by your
late Uncle fred, But...
an eighth house lunation cycle
with a fourth house Jupter
is a damned good indiciation
that you get more support from
the family than you expect.
The sring attached:
that you are not now
in total control
getting basic needs met.
Turning to others
for financial help
may be humbling,
but it will give you
you need right now.
You probably have to wonder
how you're going to pull off
even a smile
when you're all alone in your room,
thinking about everything.
You're not actually thinking then;
from your looks, to your work, love life
How amazing, though,
The minute you walks out hte door,
you're on stage,
the lights go up, the music plays
and it's show time
with a hundred and three Rockettes
kicking up their legs behind you.
This is why can still bring in the gold,
Dont stay home alone.
Ughhhhhhh. I am in a phase (possibly a permanent phase) of "fuck other people, leave me alone," so this is very unappealing. I get drained enough by my "must be on f0r 9 hours straight, people swarming and bugging me and having to SMILE" job as is. And this is the time of year where everyone is all "Family, family! The people that love you and need you!" and my relatives in this state....aren't really like that about me. Ugh. The hypocrisy. And my shrink was all, "Yeah, it's really disturbing that you think that being alone at the holidays watching tv sounds like a good time..." (okay, not phrased like that).
"Did you consider scrapping September and getting well?
My publicist Edward said I should. I had the summaries already written. But I knew the kind of letters I’d get, My birthday is in September and you didn’t do a full September. I said no, they’d be too disappointed. I never want to let them down.
It seems like some of the backlash is a testament to how dependent your readers are on you.
I never wanted them to be dependent. People go through stages. Libra, Scorpio, Taurus are very beat-up right now. I remember in 2009, I saw stress coming for me. I broke my leg on that hill at Equinox on 63rd Street (sneakers, wet marble, no signs). I went flying. I broke my thigh bone. Then, later in the year, I had trouble with my eyes. But I knew that year was going to be bad, and I wondered if I would live through it. So I want them to know in advance so they won’t be blindsided. It’s just this year. We have an eclipse on April 4, 2015, but each eclipse is tied with the eclipse prior. Last eclipse I got sick, so maybe this one I could get rid of the steroids."
Also, stop freaking out at her.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Though there may be a ton of talkative back-and-forth whirring through your immediate social environment (which I hope you are playing your participatory part in), Taurus, it cannot begin to take into account the much more promising developments just now awakening inside you. Like a modest hole-in-the-ground which vents steam from down-below, a barely-revealing sign of the major geological workings transpiring beneath the surface, you're only giving off the faintest traces of what's germinating inside you… in part because it hasn't yet sprouted sufficiently enough for even you to know how to articulate it, and in part because the stuff that everybody else is gabbing about only superficially addresses (if at all) what you believe really matters. This combination of factors holds the potential of causing you problems, alas, if you don't continue following last week's guidance about not being so serious: You're caught between (1) being able to identify what 'falls short' in others' tales and (2) being unable to synthesize your critiques into coherent arguments while situated in a not especially-opportune moment to disrupt the cursory pleasantness. Please know your problematic potential is only heightened by Mars's arrival in your 7th this week… a placement likely to stir greater-than-usual interpersonal discontent or conflict such that, even when you're 'nice', you might rub others wrong in the weeks to come. But from the inside looking out, at least, your future's feeling pretty bright.
SCORPIO (October 23-November 21): Things are about to pop off around this place! Planets are moving into new places that are power-positions for you, Scorpio! Last week, the great-expander Jupiter arrived to your solar 10th (the career/public-achievement house) to stay through mid-next-year… and now this week (on Fri Jul 25), your ruling action-dude Mars finally makes his way out of the 12th-house muddle and back home to your sign, where he remains for the next seven weeks. Both developments together radically alter your interface with the outside world: Expect 'under the radar' or 'behind the scenes' to give way to your suddenly attracting a whole lot more attention, the good and the less-favorable. And of course, this won't happen merely as a passive matter-of-circumstance, but because you are suddenly ready to step in and step up, move forward and never look back (though it only appears 'sudden' to the rest of us, when in fact you've been building up to this moment for months). As this latest power-chapter now kicks off, your first few noticeably significant steps could come off somewhat overeager, uppity, and/or abrasive—though, that said, I'm not certain you therefore ought to moderate yourself. (After all this biding-your-time, you justifiably may not give a fuck.) All in all, though, this period between now and mid-September is your prime 2014 moment to really get things going across all sectors of your life. Thanks to Saturn, there will be significant consequences, good and/or less-favorable, based on how purposefully or pointlessly you use this time.
SCORPIO AND SCORPIO RISING
If you have been on lockdown, shutdown and generally collapsed,
you’ve still miraculously been able to show
some swagger and pull off some semblance of being present.
Now is the moment to begin coming out of that
cocoon you have been in. Nobody with half a brain
would ever minimize the traumas you have been enduring.
Then, too, because you are always so successful
at making such a giant effort to conceal your fragility,
they all think you are breezing through it.
It’s got to be exhausting
to be constantly on stage,
tap dancing in a ceaseless effort
to prove that you are fine,
great, on top of the situation.
When you are alone in your room, however,
only then can you admit
that you actually feel absolutely totally shitty.
Especially when the pressure is on
from relatives and neighbors,
you are pushed to keep moving
when you so dearly need rest.
Once again here you are
facing another test of endurance,
where you are asked to continue
to cope with the problems and issues
of neighbors and relatives
from near and far,
while trying to heal yourself
from the inside out
without anybody guessing.
I'm not gonna repeat the Taurus one because I have no idea what the hell I'm supposed to get out of that other than "stay the course, yawn," but the Scorpio one was interesting:
SCORPIO (October 23-November 21): Be very skeptical about the seemingly self-evident reaching of 'last-straw' moments, Scorpio, which would inspire you to claim you can't take it anymore (whatever 'it' might be) and/or otherwise lean toward actions that express a fed-up lack of continuing patience. Whether or not this really is such a moment remains to be seen. But of course, should you actually assent to 'remaining to see' what this critical point turns out to represent in the longer-term, chances are you'll regain enough responsible wherewithal not to conduct yourself in that 'to-hell-with-it' manner which threatens to create the type of 'last straw' you claim to be reacting against. And that's exactly what the fuck-it-all nihilistic provocateur inside you is afraid of: that you will think things through, rather than react impulsively, and find a less potentially nuclear option for expressing your fed-up-ness. You've felt these urges periodically rise up over these many months of Mars-in-the-12th posing challenges to your sanity, and this is perhaps the last big hurrah as far as such urges go. You are just a few weeks away from a dramatic shift in the astro-air… one which will go far to neutralize that long-suffered sense of powerlessness and, in its place, to restore your competent capacity to once again steer the boat in your chosen direction. Before you throw in all your tiles or blow your lid or do something you can't undo, remind yourself that the next chapter is all yours to make of it what you will.
I think this is funny because I never, ever hit the point of "THAT'S IT, I AM THROUGH" and stick to it. I can tolerate ANYTHING indefinitely (see being a Taurus). I have no inner rebel, though.
On a related note, this week's Michael Lutin:
Outwardly you're in
total control, have it together,
and functioning on a high level.
The twelfth house transit of Mars
has been agonizingly slow
and slowly agonizing,
making you bounce between
imagining the worst,
and denying problems altogether,.
You have companions,
social and professional supporters
who can take you far.
Don't scare yourself.
stay with faith.
and you will straighten it all out.
Just not yet.
Love and creative expression can hurt.
When you allow yourself
f to experience
the only truly joys there are,
you open yourself to
the highest form of ecstasy,
happiness and the compassion
that enlivens the soul.
You also lay yourself bare
to unspeakably excruciating
longing and grief.
Some people avoid pain
and live without love.
Romance, children, artistry–
for you they are everything."
Hah. As if on the first two.
"In Shamanic Astrology the Rising sign represents the tribe that we are called to in the lifetime. I am called to the Libran tribe, the tribe that is all about perfect and equal partnership. The Moon sign represents the tribe that we have come from. I have a Taurus Moon, this is the tribe of the aristocrat, the courtesan. I had spent lifetimes playing the courtesan and enjoying the pleasures of decadent human living, it made sense that I feared a 'love relationship' would take me away from my spiritual quest, for these were very Earthy experiences that I had lived in my previous experiences with love and it would have been easy to get lost in once again. However I was moving away from a courtesan experience of lovemaking and into an equally partnered one, one that would serve my life purpose.
The Sun sign in Shamanic Astrology is the sign that fuels you, it is the energy that makes you go, however the Venus and Mars are equally as important in helping us to define who we are as astrological beings.
The following is a shortened version of the list of archetypes and is quoted from Daniel Giamario:
ARIES: The Virgin Amazon
TAURUS: The Lover
GEMINI: The Divine Comedienne
CANCER: The Great Mother
LEO: The Queen
VIRGO: The Priestess
LIBRA: The Beloved
SCORPIO: The Sorceress
SAGITTARIUS: The Adventurer
CAPRICORN: The Matriarch
AQUARIUS: The Visionary
PISCES: The Selfless Servant"
I have to say: totally liking the idea of a sorceress being my tribe. Hah.
