Aquarius 20 Jan - 18 Feb
The Sun will be in Scorpio until 22
November, Mercury until 9 December
and Mars from 19 November - early January.
Therefore, as 2019 comes to a close, there is
a strong planetary emphasis on Scorpio, the
zone of your solar chart associate with your work,
vocation, life path and dealings with those in positions
of influence and authority. Therefore, this is an important
time for you so make the most of opportunities to promote yourself and what you do. Your career is likely to be the focus of increased activity and you may be presented with a new opportunity, opening or offer, but one that involves a step up and forward in some way.
What complicates matters to some extent, but not entirely, is that Mercury, the communication planet, is retrogradefrom 31 October - 20 November. When Mercury is retrograde it’s usually prudent to hold-your-horses and, wherever possible, take await-and-see approach to what is going on. So, avoid the tendency to cut corners, be economical with the truth or skip the small print. This is a good time to review, revise, reassess and if necessary, move the goalposts. When Mercury is retrograde, take a step back so as to take two steps forward later. Since Mercury will be retrograde in Scorpio, the possibility of communication problems and misinformation is likely so be patient and careful about committing yourself, your time and resources.
Be mindful and don’t promise more than you can deliver, since you could regret it if you say too much too soon since you may need to rethink or revise your plans later. Until Mercury moves forward again from 20 November, it might be prudent to keep your thoughts to yourself and say too little than too much, since it is possible you don’t have the full picture yet. Nevertheless, don’t panic or you’ll cut corners, you’ll get bad advice, delayed, sidetracked and even hoodwinked. If pushed, defer, deliberate and if necessary decline.
