Words and actions may carry equal weight this year, Scorpio. Confusion and misunderstandings between you and your partner may be more frequent than usual. The secret to happiness is to ask for more clarity, make fewer assumptions, and especially don’t overreact.
The Mercury retrogrades (January 21 – February 11, May 18 – June 11, and particularly September 17 – October 9 in the partnership sign Libra) always require some extra consideration.
Romance could burst into brighter light (or, be at risk) as the Venus-Mars conjunctions approach (February 21, August 31, and November 2). Passions run high, hot, and heavy with this aspect, so focus on pleasing one another and let the outside world deal with itself for a while.
In mid-June, Saturn retrogrades back into Scorpio and won’t emerge until mid September. It’s nature’s way of saying to go slow and respect each other. You can make careful, skillful joint decisions then.
An extremely happy interlude occurs October 9-November 8 when Venus, Jupiter, and Mars are all in Virgo. Small things are more important, beautiful, and precious, but an exotic romantic vacation would not be inappropriate, either!
