According to Susan Miller. I don't think you should buy a lottery ticket, though, everyone will be doing that.
"Your eye must stay on the grand prize, Scorpio, if you wish to contain any stray rebel-cries or erratic itches which might otherwise discharge themselves from you during a momentary ego-surge. You ought to have enough to be genuinely excited about (provided that you are indeed intentionally orienting yourself in a specific direction) to keep your imagination happily occupied with future-minded visions… and, as a result, any passing irritations with a present-time happenstance can hopefully be kept in check before they spur an impassioned, though aimless, lurch. I'd even declare it okay to indulge certain escapist inclinations, if, of course, you're only 'escaping' the triggering reality by immersing yourself in creative conceptions, inspiring daydreams, and artistic inventions—but not (as we've already discussed) literally escaping the real-life situation. But just because it's presumably becoming more and more obvious how much else you could be reasonably aspiring to achieve out there in the game, that isn't enough to justify potentially imperiling your present status by trying to prematurely collect on a prospective, forthcoming greatness which you haven't yet manifested."
Oh man. I so have this issue... It's very very hard right now to not be all "I can almost taste it!"
"I want to begin by reminding you, Scorpio, the world is your oyster. I say that in honor of the two benefics, Venus and Jupiter, conjoining in your solar 10th, the house of public-sphere aspirations and achievements and recognitions. This is a splendid stellar influence on your capacity to evolve into a bigger, better position out on the world stage… even if that means first experiencing a loss, in the context of your having grown beyond the restrictive confines of an existing role."
"These weeks ahead provide you a chance to putter around with exploring new ways of activating your money-earning and/or money-managing potential, Taurus… though, with Mercury leaning into a retrograde in your 2nd (which begins next week but is already making mischief), it's less about making deals, accepting offers, or signing contracts in an immediate sense, and more a matter of trying things out on a provisional, non-committal basis. Don't mistakenly assume, for instance, there's one ideal solution to boosting your bottom-line, when in fact your most lucrative scenario might instead involve cobbling together more than one part-time income-generator, not only creating multiple streams that drop dough into your account but also keeping day-to-day life more interesting. This is the time to see just what your personal hustle can muster for you. But here's the catch: You probably know as well as I do there are certain avenues which are decidedly not open to you at the moment, due to limiting circumstances hanging over you from prior errors, entanglements, or extravagances. To be a shrewd self-serving economist, you cannot wish such limitations away. Don't fret, though. Figuring out how to work with them is a simply a creative challenge… with several viable solutions, though it's presently unclear which are most promising."
Okay, I hope this kicks in.
"TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Please be suspicious of any moves on your own part, Taurus, to reductively and/or prematurely simplify the situation. Though the swell of feelings likely to rise in you, during this Jupiter-flavored-full-moon week ahead, could seem to point unquestionably toward a rather clear-cut foregone outcome, I urge you not to overlook the very-real pertinence of certain extenuating circumstances which undeniably complicate—and, therefore, potentially undermine—what you think you know. Several astrological factors conspire to make this an exceedingly subjective moment in the world of Taureans, obscuring your perceptive awareness of how other people might arrive at quite different determinations if faced with a situation similar to yours. Now, does that mean you've got it totally twisted, upside-down and backwards? Not necessarily. What you're feeling about all this is probably quite insightful, in terms of revealing exactly where your primary concerns and considerations rest. It's just that your feelings are not the whole story. Rather than trying to take some comprehensive leap of summarizing logic which unduly engulfs a more nuanced reality, it's enough to avow this is just how you are feeling."
"SCORPIO (October 23-November 21): For the moment, your maximum advantages come from leaving intricate or perplexing situations to suspend in their complexity, open-ended, for a while longer, Scorpio. Should you cut it off, cut it short, cut your losses, or cut and run, you are needlessly leaving yourself without something which is genuinely yours (well, at least part of it is), just because you may wish to get the whole thing over with already and/or wound another party with your deliberate, dismissive absence. If you resist that impulse, however, and think more deeply on this subject, you ought to realize how many different possible outcomes could become manifest, based on your willingness to apply innovative or experimental thinking to your endgame. What do you want for yourself, beyond the contextual bounds of this circumstance… and this particular individual who, for the moment, has obviously gotten under your skin? With a bit more patient positioning on your part, you can play this thing in a way that suits your purposes far better than 'just get it over with it' could ever serve you. Thankfully, being the Scorpio that you are, you should have a higher threshold of tolerance for prolonging any discomfort—if, in the end, you score some winning point from it."

And Cafe Astrology:
If Today Is Your Birthday:
Born April 24 - Your Year Ahead
This year is strong for new beginnings and interests. New ways or channels of communicating can open doors for you, but you might want to watch for controversy or rash moves. Also watch for money and energy drains. This is a good year in which to advance your goals and to quit bad habits. Priorities become clear. Relationships are likely to be up and down, but some will stand out as special... more
If You Were Born Today, April 24
You are a determined person and you intuitively know that with patience, you can accomplish anything you set out to do. You easily earn respect from others around you, due in part to your regal manner. Your family is extremely important to you, and many of your values are quite traditional, which keeps you grounded and responsible. However, you are unafraid of embracing the new, even if you do so slowly. Famous people born today: Shirley MacLaine, Barbara Streisand, Kelly Clarkson."
"The Sun in a waxing sextile to the Moon in your Solar Return chart has a fortunate influence on your year ahead. You can be especially productive this year, as in many ways you are starting fresh, but you have a rather clear vision of what you want to accomplish. Your inner needs tend to be mirrored by external events, and vice versa, which helps to boost your confidence and happiness levels. You more readily accept that challenges are part of the natural cycle in life, which in turn helps you to meet them with confidence and to worry less. You are likely to be on top of your game this year for the most part, and positive connections with others can be made fairly easily. A comfortable level of personal popularity helps keep conflict to a minimum. With the ability to handle your emotions successfully, there will be less stress on both your mind and body.
There may be a project, idea, or person that demands much of your attention or occupies much of your thoughts. It’s a strong year for any project or studies that require concentrated effort. You are especially resourceful.
Your ability to concentrate and focus helps you to achieve what you set out to do, and your ambitions are stimulated. A new project or goal begun this year has a good chance of being successful and long-lasting. You are determined to meet or exceed your goals this year. You benefit from being more decisive than usual. It's an excellent year in which to make a lifestyle change, as your ability to concentrate on what really matters to you is enhanced. Temper and impatience are the things to avoid most - these will surely trip you up.
This can be a year in which you are building faith and confidence in your personality, skills, and talents. You can experience a stronger desire to seek out meaning, wisdom, and mental stimulation in your life during this period. Others might frequently turn to you for guidance.
You can be quite prolific with your work, mental interests, and projects. This should also be a quite sociable year, although it's not always about quantity and more often about quality of your connections.
There may be a problem with overshooting this year with Mercury-Mars-Jupiter strong in your Solar Return chart. However, you may very well need to stretch your mind in order to see new and overlooked opportunities.
Connections you make this year can be strengthening, growth-oriented ones. Your open heart is likely to attract easygoing friendships or love opportunities into your life. You have a taste for the offbeat this year.
This year is strong for new beginnings and interests. New ways or channels of communicating can open doors for you, but you might want to watch for controversy or rash moves. This is a good year in which to advance your goals and to quit bad habits. Priorities become clear. You are open to friendships and new ways of relating.
2015 is a Number Nine year for you. Ruled by Mars. This is a year of completion and transition. It is a time when we need to let go of things that no longer serve their purpose, and hold on to things that have a future. It is a time of cleaning out dead wood, not necessarily for new beginnings. It can be a time when a burden has been taken off your shoulders, and it can be a year of giving of yourself. Advice - let go of things that are holding you back, give of yourself and express your sympathetic, compassionate side.
2016 will be a Number One year for you. Ruled by the Sun. This is a year of action. The seeds you plant now, you will reap later. Others might find you less sociable, as you are busier than ever and you focus on your activities and your needs. Still, you are outgoing and your initiative is stronger than ever. Advice - Stand alone, take action, start fresh, express independence."
And just so I don't forget it... Birthday Magic: The Solar Return Chart.
"Since 2012 your ruling planet, Pluto, has been a key player in major planet action that indicated deep, inescapable, uncontrollable, change and transformation. You’ve endured and accepted many challenging circumstances that you couldn’t turn around directly and it was only by changing your attitude, perspective or approach that you found your place in the situation. Not easy, but look at the self-transformation you’ve achieved in that time; a proper make-over. This month is the final chapter in all this, so don’t hold back. Then events around an amazing new moon eclipse on the 20th are all about the next step, of new beginnings with long-term impact."
Um....I kinda doubt I've transformed much. Or enough.
"Mars/Uranus in your sector of routine (square Pluto in your communication sector) suggests that sudden actions/announcements at work, or a surprising health diagnosis, could throw you into overdrive. As abrupt as this may be, know that it’s part of a longer-term trend that the Uranus/Pluto square has been initiating. It may be time to confront a medical reality, or move on from a job/obligation that’s no longer part of your future. Jupiter’s expansive energy strongly suggests that any changes are part of a bigger, brighter future, especially if a new career goal is involved.
Mercury’s move into your sector of self-expression, and its square to Saturn Rx in your security sector, urges you to take stock of money and/or the realities of what you desire, even as you’re jumping forward. It’s doable, but you may need to look more closely at a financial issue (budgeting, saving).
Uranus/Pluto square’s final changes: work routines, co-worker relationships, health, obligations
Delays/refocusing: earned money, creative goals, discipline with resources"
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.
Beware of making short-sighted behavioral choices based on what promises to feel good in the moment, Taurus—e.g., consummating a forbidden union, transgressing a healthful bodily limit, taking the gloves off and vindictively getting even, going further than you should—but will likely weigh on you later, with a guilty conscience and/or retroactive consequences. You're at a point where it behooves you to consciously curb the amount of karmic strings your actions create, complications which would restrict your existential freedom and give others too defensible a say in how you ought to proceed in the present situation. It's far wiser to heed the watchful sway of that guardian-angel floating over your shoulder, whispering in your ear, in no uncertain terms, what's the divinely correct thing for you to do… even if it makes no sense to anyone else, even if they're riled by your shameless self-determination, even if your actions or attitudes necessarily carry you away from them, for a passing time or forever. You are the only one who must live eternally with the psychic ramifications of how you behave with regards to the circumstances unfolding in front of you. For your own highest accountability, therefore, choose what's most virtuously clean over whatever's indulgently tempting or interpersonally popular.
Back to a more linear grind, Scorpio. You'll do yourself—and the duties you're charged with, on the job and/or as a healthy and productive participant in mundane earthly reality—a major disservice by resisting this critical appeal. Despite the sobering effect on your imagination this return to tangible obligations is liable to have, you will be better off for swallowing the back-to-work pill like a champ. If you smartly accept an interpretation of your most recent phase as a restorative break from the typical routine (rather than, say, indulging the fantasy that you could sustainably live all your days like you lived those and still have something tangible to show for it), then you ought to feel properly revived… and rarin' to make the absolute most of these next weeks, an interval during which you hold the potential of accomplishing shitloads more tasks than any average un-revived human being could possibly muster. (We're talking shitloads of shitloads, folks!) But if instead you choose to rebel against this inevitable tide-turn, like the insolent guest who refuses to leave the party even after the hosts have shut off the music and begun cleaning up, you'll only accrue a backlog of physical energies aching to be channeled into some concrete purpose. And trust me, my friend, that will cause you much more harm than good, even as your inner escapist tries to convince you otherwise.
So what did I do? Today was the last day to renew my lease for another year. This year I claimed I was going to do something different, like move. Hah. I bailed out because moving is too damned hard and I can't stand to be in a state of anxiety and fighting and purging for most of the next year, ever apparently. I decided to optimistically renew and hope that I could figure something else out.
