Scorpio Horoscope: January 2013

Nothing but the Truth

You have something important to say this month. But don't just spontaneously blurt out the truth -- deliver your message at the right time with clarity on January 3, when verbose Mercury squares irrepressible Uranus. Fortunately, Mercury hooks up with your key planet Pluto in your 3rd House of Communication and forms a supportive sextile with somber Saturn on January 6, intensifying your words while focusing your thoughts on practical matters. The presence of the Sun, Pluto and Mercury in your 3rd House of Communication enables you to discuss sensitive issues rationally by keeping your emotions in check.

Although alluring Venus' entry into calculating Capricorn and your 3rd House of Immediate Environment on January 8 tempts you to wander off in pursuit of pleasure, you would be better off tackling a difficult subject now. Nevertheless, a frustrating Mars-Saturn square on January 7 reveals the gulf between what you're working toward and what you need to do to get there. The ambitious Capricorn New Moon on January 11 lands in your data-rich 3rd House of Communication, turning today's ideas into successful strategies to reach tomorrow's goals.

Tension between your thoughts and your feelings grows as rational Mercury and the willful Sun shift into conceptual Aquarius and your 4th House of Foundations on January 19. A problem that troubled you around January 7 at the Mars-Saturn square might return with a slightly different emphasis when Mercury and the Sun square serious Saturn on January 25 and January 30, respectively.

Meanwhile, the heart-centered Leo Full Moon on January 26 illuminates your 10th House of Status, encouraging you to take a risk in order to become more involved in your community or to get ahead professionally.

Keep in Mind this Month

Although it's important to communicate what you're feeling, the best way to earn trust is to match your words and your actions with your purest intentions.

Key Dates for Scorpio


January 16-17: The Power of Love

Sometimes your feelings are so strong, you can't contain them. Normally, sultry Venus' happy hookup with relentless Pluto creates an emotional tidal wave that's beyond your control, causing you to heat up a romance to the boiling point. However, the Venus-Pluto conjunction on January 16 occurs in conservative Capricorn and your 3rd House of Communication, allowing you to talk about your desires in a responsible manner rather than simply acting on them. Additionally, Venus creates a cooperative sextile with restrictive Saturn on January 17, further encouraging you to forgo immediate gratification to cultivate the kind of love that is more enduring.

January 24-26: Actions Speak Louder Than Words

It's difficult to say exactly what you mean now as the winged messenger Mercury squares constricting Saturn on January 25. Even if you find the words, they may fall upon deaf ears or overly critical minds. However, the Sun's harmonious aspects to surprising Uranus and auspicious Jupiter on January 24-25 portend a fortunate outcome to action taken at this time. The expressive Leo Full Moon on January 26 indicates that your current efforts will be appreciated as long as you keep your priorities straight.
