Life is full of ups and downs, conundrums, solutions, questions and answers for you Scorpios this month. August could be a month which is truly terrifying along with a side of the exciting and unexpected. Changes are afoot and as exhilarating as they may be, being a fixed sign means that change is something that you don't necessarily welcome. However, like it or not, it's happening sooner than later for you!
You will see and feel it all this month Scorpios. Life's highs and lows and the big, black hole of failure as well. Which threatens to find you and expose you wherever you are. Nothing will deter you however. It's a good time for you to really reach outside the box and pull out all the stops towards making this the perfect time for you to fulfill your destiny and any and all of your dreams and fantasies.
Nothing of long-term value ever comes to fruition on the back of passion and inspiration alone. Or even through your infamous determination. You do need to have a plan and a good plan at that Scorpios. And a big part of that plan is recognizing that you still need to have financial stability while you prepare for the journey ahead and for your future. Maintaining your current source of income and security will be a big part of your ability to move forward.
With the changes you are planning right now, you can't really do it alone. You might think the opposite but truth is, you need help, backup and support from the people around you. It's high time you realized and recognized that it's not a sign of weakness or incompetence or even stupidity but a time for you to accept other people's help and guidance as well. You don't always have to do everything on your own Scorpios. If you have good people around you who always know how and when to encourage you, reach out to them today. Let their guidance and wisdom wash over you and be open to their advice and guidance.

Birthday sign Scorpio (October 24 – November 22)
From the 5th – 8th, the Universe will see to it that you have some lucky breaks Scorpios – the kind that you really need right about now too. Does this mean you will meet the man or woman of your dreams or win big on lotto? Maybe, but maybe it’s more about a life change or attitude change that will bring with it brand new ways of looking at things. Focusing your energy on doing the honorable thing regardless of whether it pays off for you or not is definitely something to aspire too around the time of your New Moon November 7. New Moons bring with them new beginnings and a chance to make up for lost time if you feel you missed the cosmic boat somewhere along the line earlier in the year.
Financially you may be facing some obstacles and stumbling blocks at this time Scorpios. Mid-month when Venus finally decides to return to work along with Mercury the clear thinker going out of phase in your money and self-esteem zone November 16 is like a double edged sword for you. Venus finally gets her act together on the same day as Mercury, the other personal planet of the zodiac decides to take his vacation time. Venus and Mercury will team up to stall, hinder and delay us all in the department of finances. The best thing you can do is try to be absolutely sure you have all the facts and information you need before you tackle the issue. You are usually a very organized person as it is, but even you can forget to factor things into the cosmic equation at times. Once again, to be forearmed with as much knowledge as possible and to know what your options are is vital.
On the 30th, loving Venus will get into an astrological tug of war with startling Uranus, possibly forcing you to choose between making money and accommodating the emotional needs of your loved ones who have been complaining about not spending enough time with you. Fortunately you Scorpios are known for your juggling skills and with a little luck, you should be able to do both.

Scorpio (October 24 – November 22)
The big cosmic news for you Scorpios this month is the retrograde movement of Venus in your sign, starting October 5 – November 16. Venus rules love and money and while retrograde will be a huge catalyst in making/forcing you to make decisions about money matters you’ve previously been ignoring. Or have been unwilling to deal with. It’s time for you to face facts and and figure out what to do about your various credit cards, Superannuation accounts and mortgage issues. Not fun, but you won’t be able to avoid your financial situation in October.
Communications guru Mercury in your sign October 11 – October 31 is a very bright light in your chart this month Scorpios. You will definitely find your voice and be more opinionated than usual if that is something some of you have been struggling with lately. If you have something important that you need to get off your chest, now is the right time to do just that. No beating around the bush though Scorpios. You only have 3 weeks to make yourself heard above the rabble. Do keep in mind that with Venus out of phase in your sign, you will have to be more than careful of what you say and how you say it. Timing and tone is everything Scorpios.
The Sun will oppose startling Uranus on the 23rd Scorpios, creating an atmosphere that’s set to bring sudden emotional shifts to just about any of your relationships. Even those you were sure would never, ever change. Just don’t jump to conclusions, but do pay attention if someone comes to you with unsettling news about someone close to your heart.
Getting your friends and family together on the 24th is a great way to celebrate the Sun’s move into your sign and the start of your birthday month. The Full Moon in Taurus, your opposite sign makes this the perfect cosmic setting to enjoy each other’s company, good food, wine and plenty of unconditional love being passed around.
Your best October days are: 6, 12, 24 & 27
Your challenging October days are: 2, 10, 17 & 31
Scorpio (October 24 – November 22)
September is a great time for you to make some changes to your appearance you might have been thinking about lately. Venus the lover spends time in your sign – in fact she spends a very long time in your sign. Venus sets up shop in your sign September 9 (the same day as the New Moon) and remains in your sign through October 31st (retrograding from October 5 – 31 in your sign) and then backtracking through your past karma zone October 31 – November 16. More on what that could bring your way next month. Now is a great time to think about getting your hair done – colored, trimmed or styled differently. It’s also a good month to rethink who you are looking for in a partner or what changes you feel you need to make as a partner – depending on whether you are single or attached (or a bit of both!) Make sure you read my Love Scopes to find out more!
Volatile Mars marches into your 4th house of domesticity on the 10th, which is sure to reignite something that has been simmering for some time. Maybe you and your other half have been arguing or debating intensely about selling/renovating your home or starting a family or adding to your brood. Mars is your co-ruler and while his arrival might be rather brusque, it will get the conversation and deliberations started. For single Scorpios in need of some extra cash, this is a good time for you to consider taking on a roommate or replacing a roommate you’re not getting along with.
The time for financial planning and strategy is now Scorpions, with Venus the goddess of love combining forces with a New Moon on the 9th – the perfect combo for putting a long held plan into action – versus just talking about it and stressing about it. If you do act now, you will more than likely see results by the end of the month – just make sure you start them before Venus goes out of phase in your sign October 5 – more about that in October. Just know that it’s a big deal – Venus is one of the 2 personal planets of the zodiac – Mercury being the other one – and when she spins backwards all kinds of issues arise – especially regarding relationships. So try to resolve any and all relationship issues this month if possible Scorpios.
Your best September days: 5, 11, 16 & 27
Your least favorite September days: 2, 13, 24 & 38
Best connections: Virgos & Pisces
Least viable connections: Aries & Leos
Scorpio (October 24 – November 22)
August gets off to an unpredictable start for you Scorpios, which might be just what the Doctor ordered or not – depending on what you’re looking for. With the planet of communication out of phase through the 19th in your 10th house of career and ambition, you need to keep a level head in the office and while dealing with co-workers. Once Mercury moves direct it will be all systems go, but until that happens you have to maintain a level head and not jump into anything without a long hard look at the situation. If you feel something is about to ‘blow up in your face’ so to speak, get out of the way Scorpios! Deal with it after the 19th.
A money oriented deal or project you were banking on this month might not go off as planned or as you hoped Scorpios. However it’s not time to throw in the cosmic towel just yet. Just approach the issue from another angle and you will definitely find ways around whatever roadblocks you are facing. Also if you are dealing with a bank or lending society do keep in mind that with Mercury the planet of clear thinking out of phase through August 19, it’s actually not a good time to try to bankroll anything new. If you’re refinancing it’s another matter.
For those of you with plans for the weekend of the 18th, it might be a hit and miss affair for some of you. Once again Mercury is stationing and getting ready to resume his forward motion and can definitely throw a cosmic spanner in the works when it comes to missed flights, complicated hiccups with AirBnb and car troubles whilst getting to your destination. If it all turns out to be way too complicated, now’s a good time to stay home and find new ways to entertain yourself and your partner/friends/family.
Your most rewarding August days: 3, 11, 22 & 27
Your most unrewarding August days: 8, 14, 18 & 29
Scorpio (October 24 – November 22)
Be daring and try something new on the 11th Scorpios. Experiment with an activity you’ve always been curious about for example or take a friend out for the day to investigate a new and promising business opportunity that has just opened up. Variety really is the spice of life Scorpios and this month, many of you will be in the mood to shake things up a little and break up your routine. You’re a fixed sign and used to doing things a certain way but if you can take more chances and throw caution to the wind this month, it will be well worth your while.
Some of you will be feeling a bit extravagant mid month so don’t get roped into buying something you really don’t need, much less even want. Buy things that are practical and useful as well as things you know won’t just be a fleeting thing but something you will enjoy for some time to come.
Towards the end of the month, Mercury goes out of phase in your career and social climbing zone where he remains in retrograde through August 19. Around the same time, the Sun and always surprising Uranus get into a testy, provocative square aspect. You should expect the unexpected at this time Scorpios. A job offer might be rescinded or scaled back and there will be absolutely nothing you can do about it except ride it out. Once Mercury moves direct mid-August all will slowly get back to normal Scorpios.
Your lucky days in July: 5, 8, 20 & 22
Your unlucky days in July:10, 24, 25 & 27
Feeling lucky around the 1st Scorpios? Take advantage of it by taking a chance on a raffle or the lottery. As long as you don’t go overboard and buy too many tickets! It only takes one ticket or scratch off to win so if it’s your time to win, win you will.
Once Venus the planet of money moves into Leo on the 14th, your 10th house of ambition and career where she stays through July 11, it will be like a fire has been lit beneath you Scorpios. The desire to do better professionally and to be paid for your efforts will intensify around the 19th when you should really step up your game. While it may seem that a raise or promotion is right around the cosmic corner, don’t count your cosmic chickens until they hatch. You might lose sight of the bigger picture and one tiny detail could throw off the entire process. You will have to start wooing and playing the game all over again. Make sure you have all your bases covered and you have your resume polished and ready to go in case your job is resistant to your proposals.
Jupiter the planet of good luck and opportunity continues to retrograde in your sign and on the 19th Neptune the planet of fantasy joins him, retrograding in Pisces your self-fulfillment and creative zone. June is a month when many things will become obvious and extremely transparent to you Scorpios, which will be a huge learning curve for you. Across the board, in all areas of life, June is one of those months which will help you learn who is on your side and who isn’t. Make sure you read my June 2018 Lovescopes article for information on your love life!
Your best days:2, 9, 10 & 22
Your worst days:14, 16, 21 & 26
Last Month’s Horoscope for Scorpio
Relaxation and a lot of spare time might not be on your cosmic agenda this month Scorpios with so many planets in serious Capricorn and your 3rd house of thoughts and communications. Rest assured however that when do kick back and relax, you’ll be able to do so without a care in the world, especially around the weekend of the 19th.
The 19th is an important date for you Scorpios as it will help you solve quite a few money issues as well. Whether the problems are personal or professional or both – doesn’t really matter in the long run. What’s really important is that you keep an open mind and allow yourself to examine all of your possibilities. Not just get stuck on the one idea or take the easy way out. Allow yourself to colour outside the lines – not something you Scorpios usually do but which will be very beneficial for you this month.
Energetic Mars and unusual Uranus square off on the 16th Scorpios, creating an astrological recipe that’s often responsible for sudden events that can be quite disruptive. If you’re heading out to do some errands, you might not get to do them all due to being interrupted along the way. Just don’t’ blame others for your situation if they had absolutely nothing to do with it either Scorpios,
