Most of the week involves coming down from the high of the Scorpio Full Moon. Take your time as you settle into your new normal. The Full Moon may have taken place the 29th, but you’ll be feeling its energy all week long, and still learning from its mystical lessons. Your Scorpio powers have been activated more than ever, and the more you tap into them, the more empowered you will feel. The key is to continue to purge, slowly but surely. The Scorpio energy is inspiring you to let go of excess baggage, release pettiness, fight the urge to be manipulative, and focus on living your best life. Meanwhile, the energy of Taurus Season helps stabilize your emotions, and asks you to choose a practical path to achieving your profound aspirations.
The week also begins with a powerful alignment between the Scorpio Moon and Jupiter in Scorpio. Jupiter’s been in your sign since October 10, 2017 — a little under 7 months. This is a perfect time to check-in with yourself regarding your expansion goals. Maybe 7 months ago you were envisioning that you’d use Jupiter’s abundance to make a major lifestyle change such as quitting a bad habit, moving to your dream location, becoming better at managing your money, releasing toxic behavior patterns in relationships, etc… This Moon-Jupiter alignment gives you a much needed boost to be your own best friend and see how far you’ve come on your journey. It’s a great time to journal or go on a walk, and talk to yourself the way you’d talk to someone you deeply love.
No need to berate yourself if you haven’t made as much personal progress as you’d hoped — Jupiter remains in Scorpio until November 8, 2018, and the peak of its magic will take place from July – November. So simply open yourself up to the possibility that you’ve simply seen the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the abundance you can tap into. This week would be a great time to push yourself out of your comfort zone and ask the Universe for something near and dear to your heart. Be willing to take a bold step towards acquiring it yourself. That may mean sending an email, making a life-changing phone call, or accepting someone’s apology.
Tuesday – Thursday, the Moon is in Sagittarius, and this considerably lightens up the vibes in the cosmos, especially since Venus, the Planet of Love, is now in Gemini, Sagittarius’ opposite sign of the zodiac. Mid-week is therefore perfect for social gatherings, especially if you’ve been in hermit mode last week. Call up a friend or engage in a group chat that will have you doubling over with laughter. It’ll feel good to not take yourself or life as seriously as you did in the days before. The Sag energy will bring out your flirtatious side, helping you lighten up after last week’s Scorpio Full Moon that had you so deeply in your feelings. This lunation transit will be like a breath of fresh air for you. Romantically, this week will have you exploring new aspects of yourself as a lover, and being less rigid when it comes to what you expect from others. Going on an impromptu date, playing hooky from work, or staying up all night talking about your dreams with someone special is on the agenda… or better.
Then Friday throughout the weekend, the Moon shifts into Capricorn, so you may find that your most productive days actually arrive this weekend. You will be in the mood to silently plot and plan your world domination. You won’t want to procrastinate or put things off to another day, especially once inspiration strikes and you’re given the opportunity to make major moves. Take time this weekend to create a business plan, write down what it takes to get from point A to point B, discuss with equally ambitious team players, or grow a team if you don’t have one already. There is so much that you’re ready to build these next 7 months of the year, but you cannot do it alone. You must take time to be sure that everyone who’s on your team is loyal and committed to success, just like you. So don’t rush into any binding partnerships without making sure your intuition agrees.
All in all, Scorpio, this week will feel like you’ve stepped into a new vortex. You had to go through the intensity of last week’s Full Moon to be able to feel the rays of sunshine on your face now. Bad times don’t last forever, but good times can also fade, so enjoy them while they’re here. This week, your challenge is to be more present. It’s easy to get so focused on the future and what you have to do next that you lose touch with what’s happening now. Anytime you find your mind getting distracted, tune back into the now moment. Take deep breaths. Close your eyes. Feel the wind blowing through your hair. Listen to the birds chirping. Feel yourself being alive, and be grateful for another day.
