Where do I begin? I want to ask about my love life and my income life. I also want to ask what to focus on in my creative life. My birthday is December 1, 1956. Talk about confused. I’m getting an itch to move to another state – a warmer climate. Should I start packing? I have so much to get done but wonder if I will have help. Most of all I just want to be able to get the best out of the universe and my path. What cautions should I notice? I’m looking for the “how” on my path, to get the most out of what is coming. Thanks for any insight you might have which I value. (SA)
So glad you asked. This is an important time to ask about your love life and income life. With 4 degrees of Aquarius on your 7th house angle of marriage and partnership, the Descendant, it is crucial to notice that your progressed Sun moved into your 7th house 3 years ago while your solar arc progressed Moon has just moved into your 7th house and your solar arc progressed Saturn will move into your 7th house in 2014. Wow, this is an unusual and powerful indicator of a committed partnership developing over the coming year; a relationship that will be a healing force in your life as your progressed Sun conjuncts your natal Chiron in the 7th house. You are entering a new chapter in your love/marriage life as your progressed Sun is not only now in your 7th house but also has just opposed your natal Uranus which rules your 7th house. The spotlight is clearly on love and marriage.
With natal Uranus so closely conjunct your Ascendant (2 degrees), you frequently get an itch, however, your 9th house of long distance moves does show transiting Uranus in the 9th,where it has been for several years now trine your natal Uranus, Saturn, Moon and Sun. A move is likely during these trines but I suspect it would be more successful when your solar arc progressed Jupiter conjuncts your North Node of the Moon in your 4th house of home in 2014 as transiting Saturn also conjuncts your North Node at that time. It might be better to get that “so much” done first. A caution for this time period would be to focus on building your income now that transiting Neptune is finished squaring your 2nd house, the house of income, Pluto which you can improve as transiting Jupiter opposes your natal Sun. Transiting Saturn is currently conjunct your natal Venus describing a time to focus on your stabilizing your home (natal Venus in the 4th, your finances and your career before making any major moves.
My life is good and I am thankful for all the blessings I have received but one consistent thing lacking in my life has been steady female companionship. I’ve had girlfriends and I could have been married to a couple of them but I knew deep down that it would not work out in the long run. Eventually, I met someone who I thought was the right person and married but when things got tough in the marriage my ex wife decided to have an affair and run away from the difficulties. At 50, am I destined to be alone for the rest of my life? I was born October 30, 1962. Thanks. (RL)
Thankfully, your life is good and even more importantly you are grateful for the blessings you enjoy. Equally important, you did not marry women you did not feel you could commit to fully. Scorpios do know instinctively what and who resonates with their soul and life path. It is crucial to trust that instinct as you have done which is likely why your life is essentially as good as you report that it is. Not only are you a Scorpio Sun, your Venus and Neptune are also in Scorpio which along with your natal Pluto (Scorpio’s ruling planet) in Scorpio’s 8th house describe your challenge finding true intimacy in a loving relationship. Notice that your Sun in Scorpio is in a T-Square conjunct Neptune square Mars and Saturn; all of which are closely aspected to your nodes of the Moon. In addition to these prominent indicators of desire for and conflict in intimacy, your natal Venus, the planet of love and relationship, was in retrograde motion at your birth suggesting many stepping stones in your love life before you achieve a stable life partnership. All of these challenging patterns confirm your struggle finding and keeping a loving partner in your life. However your aspects are improving, your Venus progressed to direct motion when you were 34, transiting Saturn is no longer in your 8th house of intimacy as it was a few years ago, transiting Neptune is no longer square your natal Moon or Venus (the planets that represent women in a man’s life) as it was the last few years, and your solar arc progressed Mercury (the ruler of your 7th house of marriage) is no longer square your natal Uranus/Pluto as it was for most of the last decade. Ouch, no wonder you have experienced difficulties in your previous marriage followed by betrayal and loss and loneliness.
Now the good news is that transiting Jupiter is moving into your 7th house of partnership/marriage in May while your progressed Moon will conjunct your natal Mercury in 10 months. Over the next 12 months, your potential (shown by Jupiter’s opportune movement into your 7th house) for meeting a partner is much more positive than it has been in many years. For these reasons, I would expect your romantic life to be more enjoyable soon, however, the lifetime, loving partner you desire and sense will be in your life may not appear until a bit later in your 50’s or someone you meet over the next year maybe a relationship that develops over a number of years. If you have not pursued personal growth through therapy, spiritual path work or healing/energy work, I would strongly recommend you do so in order to transform your 8th house planets into allies rather than disappointments. No, your chart not only does not indicate that you are destined to be alone in this lifetime, it clearly supports a later (Sun square Saturn) fulfillment of your destiny which for a Scorpio must include a deeply intimate shared life and love.
