Scorpio 2017 stars: your year ahead

What a complex person you are! With so much going on, it’s no wonder you crave solitude … but just as importantly, you love connecting (and you’ll do plenty of that, wink wink). As you delve into people’s motives, an interest in psychology or healing might take root.

If work’s been sapping your energy, eclipses in February and August will act as catalysts for change. By 2018 you could find yourself doing something quite different, or even setting up your own business. When Jupiter shifts into Scorpio from mid-October, your year of expansion and discovery will begin. Dreams really can come true, so make them good ones!

Keywords: reflective, indulgent, inspired, expansive, anxious … digging deep for answers

Love & friendship

January’s celestial weather looks bright and sunny, helped along by lashings of food, wine and good company. Concerts and cultural events should leave you on a high, as might the attentions of a fellow foodie. Easter’s heart-charged stars could prompt a reconciliation, while couples might reconnect as they embrace a healthier lifestyle (pheromones will be flying!). Friends may do some sneaky matchmaking through winter, but by late-spring, you’ll be oozing confidence and perhaps even fighting them off!

Cash & career

Can you feel the change in the air? Eclipses in February and August foretell changes on the job front, but if you’ve put in the groundwork, they could present you with a golden opportunity. May’s social patterns could widen your business network, and yes, things could turn romantic. By July, you might even land a leadership role. An inheritance or payout might boost the coffers through winter, or a new enterprise could get you excited. Why not brush up your business skills this year or try your hand at buying and selling?

Health & wellbeing

Overindulging? With your party sector pumping, I’m not surprised. Let off some steam (2016 wasn’t easy!), then turn over a new leaf on February 1. With the moon and Mars firing up your chart’s fitness sector, you’ll power along. As that competitive streak surfaces, you might even join a sporting team. If tiredness is holding you back, organise a few tests through August, when an underlying problem could come to light. When Jupiter lights up your centre stage from October, you’ll want to look and feel you best.

Scorpio travel style

Scorpios may crave opulence and romance, but they love a good dose of adventure too. Fossicking for antiques, trekking uncharted paths … that inner explorer is never far from the surface. Stimulation with equal parts romance and relaxation.

TRY: Rainforest retreat, boutique hotel, Great Barrier Reef, NT outback adventure, Hawaiian volcano tour, Asian river cruise, Jenolan Caves, Parisian catacombs, London’s Portabello Road.

Scorpio food & fitness style

If you’re a typical Scorpio, you lean towards rich, strong flavours (and men!). But alas, your stomach may not always agree. A few dietary changes could make a big difference: try lighter, more frequent meals, and if boredom is a problem, challenge yourself to trying a new recipe each week.

Feeling fit and strong makes you feel good, so don’t fall into bad habits. Grab some hand weights, or if you’re up for a challenge, try karate or self-defense classes. Squeeze in a few power walks as well … with your determination, you might end up running marathons. Alternatively, liven things up by learning to belly dance … or go Latin.

Scorpio gemstones and crystals

Topaz and malachite (your ruling stones), beryl, emerald, garnet, herkimer, diamonds, malachite, obsidian (for protection), ruby, topaz, turquoise, peridot (for healing). I you’d like to order crystals email … I often have a few in stock.
