Mercury Retrograde ends this week, Scorpio! You will be feeling a bit more restless Monday – Wednesday, as the month of May begins, but it will be the kind of restlessness that inspires you to be productive and organized. The last few days of Mercury Retrograde can sometimes be the most intense of all, so give yourself plenty of time when traveling, triple check your documents, and try to avoid signing contracts until later this week or early next week. You may have to deal with delays in transportation and in communication, but just know that after May 3, 2017, everything will start to go back to normal again and you won’t have to walk around on eggshells as much as you previously had. But it’s not all going to improve overnight, so the point of this first week of May is to be super patient with yourself and others. Even if everything seems to be breaking down, it’s happening for a reason. Sometimes you need to go through destruction to learn how to rebuild yourself from the ground up.
On Tuesday, May 2, the Moon enters Leo and lights up your career and reputation sector. Your professional goals are on your mind this week, more than usual. You are willing to make some necessary sacrifices in order to attain a more expansive position in your job and overall life trajectory. If you’re self-employed, you may have to relinquish control and delegate tasks, or you may realize that not everyone you’re working with is serving your best interest. If you’re working for a company, this is the time to really make sure that your personal values are aligned with your job’s. There are plenty of jobs out there that you are qualified for, Scorpio, and you can always create your own job if you’re feeling stifled or uninspired. This week is about imagining what your “what if” would look like. If you can imagine it, you can manifest it. So just have fun brainstorming if you’re feeling the urge to switch up the status quo. No need to make major action right now, but as we get closer to next week’s Full Moon in Scorpio, you’ll be more confident about switching things up for the better.
This week, you’ll realize that putting too much pressure on yourself to try to get everything done on your own is a losing scenario. It’s time for you to put your pride and ego aside and realize that you are human, Scorpio. You can ask for help, and you’ll receive it! But if you try to put on a front like you can do it all yourself, you’ll end up crumbling under pressure. Take time this week to think about all of the responsibilities, projects, duties and expectations you place on yourself. Which ones invigorate you? Which ones drain you? Which ones do you think you’d enjoy more if you had a team behind you? Which ones do you think you need to devote more time and attention to? This first week of May is a wonderful time for focusing on prioritizing your passions, and not putting too much on your plate. Try to focus on the 3 tasks that give you the most life, and make them a regular activity in your day-to-day life. Gradually start to weed out activities that are boring or overly stressful, even if they pay the bills. Trust that you can still have financial security while doing what you love, Scorpio.
There are so many planets activating your health, service, and work sectors this week (and this month), Scorpio. It’s important for you to regularly relax, stay well-hydrated, well-fed, well-rested, and well-exercised. Anytime you find yourself about to snap at someone, take a deep breath, get some solo time, and ask yourself why you feel so antsy or touchy. There’s no point in dumping your frustrations on other people, Scorpio. You have to take responsibility for your emotions and mindset. If you find yourself being pessimistic or cynical, it’s time to rewire your thought process and focus on all your blessings and abundance. Yes, retrograde season may have put a bit of a damper on some of your long-term plans, but in reality, the retrogrades are just testing you to make sure you really know what you’re after in the first place. Think about the projects you’ve been thinking about completing, but that you actually haven’t followed through on. What’s stopping you, Scorpio? Take some time this week to reflect on how your own insecurities or fear of failure may be holding you back. Then think of one solution you could do to overcome that. Perhaps rewarding yourself for every time you take bold action like pitching a project or applying for a position. Find a way to keep yourself motivated while holding yourself accountable for your own success. The Universe only responds to the energy you put into it.
Romantically, you’ll be focused on matters of the heart this weekend, as Mercury Retrograde will be over and Jupiter and the Moon align harmoniously in your spirituality and closure sector. Jupiter will still be retrograde, so you may be dealing with finding closure from a recurring past issue that you keep bringing back into your life. If you’ve found yourself being overly suspicious of people, even if you don’t really have a reason to, you may make progress in identifying a solution to that suspicion and lack of trust this weekend, Scorpio. It’s up to you to decide when to turn a new leaf and no longer hold on to what makes you feel bitter or unloved. Sometimes Scorpios hold on to past hurts so much that we actually amplify the pain in our heads by making the story into something even greater than it really was. This then causes us to have a wall around our heart, pushing love out instead of letting love heal us from the inside out. While we can’t necessary learn to be vulnerable overnight, this Moon-Jupiter unison can lead to you getting closer to someone who treats you with the respect, compassion and admiration you deserve. You’ll realize that the more you focus on fear, the more you attract fear into your life. But if you focus on the fact that you’re worthy of a meaningful, passionate, devoted relationship, you’ll attract people who treat you the way you desire. Just be careful what you wish for, Scorpio, because your magnetic vibes are stronger than ever! Don’t actually lead someone on just because you’re feeling flirtatious or seeking attention. Be intentional about who gets to be woo’d by your Scorpio charm…
