Love and social affairs have been volatile the past two years. Not a surprise considering the volatility of your emotions. There was also a big challenge in balancing your social life with your family obligations. The two pulled you in opposite directions.
There was expansion in your social sphere last year, but towards the end more of a contraction. That is, you made many new friends and it became necessary to weed out the true ones from the false or lukewarm ones. If there’s anything a Scorpio dislikes it’s someone disloyal or half-hearted.
A friend or lover should be so for life – through thick and thin – through good times and bad. Many friendships didn’t pass the test and it was well that they didn’t. You can focus on the quality ones. This trend of winnowing out the good from the bad is still going on early in the year.
When Saturn leaves Taurus on April 20th this process will be about over. You will find a new freedom in your love life – a freedom to shape things as you want them to be. Social burdens and duties become less irksome.
Many of you married in the past year. Many of you got involved with older, more established people. After April 20th we expect the status quo in your love life. Ongoing relationships will continue. Singles will probably remain single.
Venus is your Love Planet. It makes an unusually long transit (four months) in the Sign of Aries from February 2nd to June 6th. This shows romantic opportunities at work, with a co-worker or employee. Seems basically happy. Marriage is a possibility – though there is much free will these days.
Venus, as steady readers know, moves through all the Signs and Houses of the Horoscope in a given year. It is a fast-moving planet. Thus love can come to you in all kinds of ways and through all kinds of people and situations.
The retrogrades of Venus (these are usually rare, but we have one this year from March 9th to April 20th) are significant in your love life. (Generically they affect everyone’s love life, but in your case especially so.)
This brings apparent setbacks, delays, changes of direction in love. It’s as if both you and your beloved need to re-evaluate the relationship.
This retrograde doesn’t mean the end of the relationship – only a pause. Good relationships will weather these things. In fact, getting through a Venus retrograde (as well as a Saturn move through your 7th House) is an excellent test of a relationship.
Scorpios looking towards a second marriage meet with good success this year. Those of you looking towards a third marriage will probably see the status quo maintained.
Children of marriageable age will also maintain the status quo – marrieds will remain married, singles will remain single.
Grandchildren of marriageable age likewise. Siblings have a great social year coming up, especially after July 13th. Wedding bells are in the air.
The love relationships of parents and/or parent figures is very volatile.
