Just because an item carries a high price tag doesn’t make it automatically desirable. Today’s new moon in your second house of finances urges you to rein in your freewheeling spending habits, especially when it comes to gift giving. If you want to show you care, draw out your DIY skills and create thoughtful presents a la Scorpio. The value in something handmade from the heart is priceless. This lunar light could also illuminate new work opportunities. If you’re looking for a change, keep your ear to the ground.
You can’t help but be drawn to people who walk on the wild side, but today is about tending to your own maverick nature. A Mercury-Mars mashup challenges you to reveal more of your renegade spirit. Make second-guessing yourself off-limits today, and follow your instincts. Even if you end up standing alone in the crowd, going with your gut won’t lead you astray. Take that leap: Mercury will leave your sign tomorrow (after hanging there since September 29!), making you less inclined to put yourself out on a limb.
Downshift. Since September 29, expressive Mercury’s been in your sign, positioning you smackdab in the middle of all things social. Regardless of how it went, Scorpios and spotlights are usually a tough mix. Relief arrives today as Mercury slides into Sagittarius until December 24, putting you into a more productive frame of mind. All those things that fell to the wayside now demand your immediate attention. Make sure updating your budget also makes your priority list. After having to be on your toes for so long, knowing what comes next will leave you breathing easier.
Think you’ve got all the answers on the job, Scorpio? Even if you do, you’ll get much farther by letting others weigh in on the issues. There’s no need to lay it on thick. In fact, when you approach your colleagues with respect, they might actually surprise you with original ideas that could transform your plan from average to amazing. Remain receptive to partnering up with a colleague; you could form a dynamic duo to be reckoned with.
Under today’s stars there’s no such thing as too close for comfort, Scorpio. In fact, it’s a perfect day for the kind of intimate exchanges your sign adores. Share lunch outside the office with close colleague where you can both unload the stressors of the week. Come this evening, host a handful of your closest friends for homemade food and delicious conversation. Family time could also satisfy your craving for closeness. Make plans for some sisterly bonding, or throw together a weekend bag and catch up with your folks.
Sneak behind the scenes in the name of creating your next masterpiece this Saturday. Your cosmic co-ruler motivator Mars settles into Libra and your visionary twelfth house for the next eight months, infusing you with divine inspiration. While you’re usually most comfortable backstage, don’t move into hibernation mode, Scorpio. Supportive people are all around you, willing to assist in advancing your goals. You’ll find the most helpful mentors in settings such as a spiritual retreat, volunteer placement, or meditation class. On Sunday, a moon-Neptune mashup in your romance sector tones down your trademark air of mystery and turns up the volume on your true emotions. Be crystal clear about your limits. If a dating prospect doesn’t have what it takes for a LTR, come clean instead of stringing them along. Fair is fair. Should your ultimate goal be marriage and starting a family, don’t keep these desires to yourself. It’s best to let potential candidates know early on, so you don’t waste your time. Already attached? Open up a light-hearted discussion about your shared goals. It could set the scene for an adventure a deux. Couple’s getaway, anyone?
