Summary Scorpio Horoscope: An emphasis on home and career, with two major eclipses in these sectors. Mercury retrograde could see a friendship matter or long-term goal come up for review. Saturn direct in your salary house could straighten out a money matter.
Extended Scorpio Horoscope: There’s sure to be lots of activity in your life this month, with two game changing eclipses, Mercury and Uranus going retrograde, and Saturn going direct!
The month begins with two major heavy hitting planets, Jupiter and Pluto (your ruler), squaring one another on August 4th in your closure and communication houses. You might have difficulties with travel, commitments, siblings, or cars at this time.
This aspect has occurred before- in late November 2016 and late March 2017– so think back to those times for clues as to themes that could emerge.
Then, the first eclipse will be a lunar eclipse on August 7th in your home zone. Luckily, this eclipse will reach out happily to good luck Jupiter in your closure house, as well as stable Saturn in your salary sector, suggesting that you could move, buy or sell a home, or spend time with family.
One thing to be watchful of, however, is the fact that energizer Mars (your other ruler) will be zooming through your 10th house of career, directly opposite this eclipse. It’s possible that you will be extremely busy with work- perhaps even gunning for a promotion or a fancy new job.
Some good days to address career needs are August 10th, 13th, 16th, 20th, 21st, 22nd, and 27th. Luckily, I don’t see any other negative squares or oppositions between planets in this house this month!
In fact, the solar eclipse on August 21st takes place in this very same house of career, and it is the most gorgeous eclipse! It will conjunct motivator Mars and the fated North Node, reach out happily to Jupiter and Uranus in your work, health, and closure houses, and trine stable Saturn in your salary house!
If you’ve been looking for a plum new job or promotion, this could be your time! It’s also possible that you win an award for your work, or receive press due to your efforts.
There is reason to suggest that you make any moves earlier than the eclipse, however, as on August 13th Mercury goes retrograde, and I think we all know to stay away from Mercury retrograde by now!
This time, it will take place in Virgo and your 11th house of friends and goals, so you may need to review and revise a matter of this nature. I would avoid making any major commitments “official” during this time or signing any contracts. You could find down the road that whatever you committed to is not what you thought it was.
Mercury also rules your 8th house of finances, so this is an area of life that could come up for review as well. Mercury goes direct on September 5th. .
Switching gears, you’ll be pleased to hear that love planet Venus is gliding through your 9th house of travel this month, possibly sending you on a romantic vacation. If you’re single, you may find love abroad!
Venus will make loving aspects to Mercury, Neptune, and Pluto (your ruler!) respectively on August 10th, 12th, and 15th, so these are wonderful days to address travel needs.
Days I would avoid are August 17th and August 24th, when Venus will be angry with Jupiter and then Uranus in your work, health, and closure houses. Work or illness may spoil your travels on these days.
Luckily, August 27th sees the Sun in your closure house reach out happily to Saturn in your money zone. Even better, on August 25th, Saturn goes direct in your money house, suggesting that a financial matter will speed up or become easier.
Summary Scorpio Horoscope: A writing project or commitment may come to a head on July 8th. The new moon on May 25th could sweep in a new job, promotion, or professional accolades!
Extended Scorpio Horoscope: June 23rd saw a new moon in your travel house, conjunct Mercury and Mars in the same house, and making a loose square to Jupiter in your closure zone.
It’s possible that you went on vacation, or began a new course of study. It’s also possible that you are taking the final steps in a course of study (such as finals, a thesis, etc) or finishing out the tail end of a lengthy travel session.
The first few weeks of the month continue this focus on travel and education, with your best day to take action being July 5th, when the Sun makes a harmonious trine to Neptune in your love house.
However, there are some hard aspects going on in your travel house throughout the month, which could bring challenges your way. Days to watch out for are July 2nd, 4th, 9th, 17th, and 20th.
Then, July 8th sees full moon in your communication zone, and in truth, this moon is mixed.
While the moon will make a loving trine to Neptune in your love house, suggesting you could go on a romantic trip, it will conjunct transformational Pluto (your ruler), oppose warrior Mars in your travel house, and square good luck Jupiter in your closure zone.
It’s possible that you’ll have problems with a car or while traveling. You might even get into an argument or have a miscommunication problem. It may be that your sibling needs you at this time.
Luckily, money matters seem to go well this month, with loving Venus gliding her way through Gemini. Good days to address financial types of needs are July 18th, 26th, and 30th.
I would avoid July 17th and 24th for money matters.
As the month progresses, planets begin to trickle into Leo and your 10th house of career. Luckily, it’s all good news on this front, as Mercury makes harmonious aspects with Venus, Jupiter, Saturn, the True Node, and Uranus on July 7th, 14th, 19th, 21st, and 24th respectively.
In fact, you get a lovely new moon in this same 10th house on July 23th, suggesting that you may even get a new job or promotion!
Next month offers even more possibilities for status and career, since there will be a stunning solar eclipse in Leo (your 10th house) on August 21st.
