Becoming less distracted will be one of your key challenges in 2014. You have a tendency to say yes to too many people, which depletes your energies and fails to achieve what your Scorpio destiny has intended for you. This is a year of focus, as shown by the transit of Saturn and its extraordinarily strong influence on your zone of career. This means that your concentration will be a force to be reckoned with.
Because your finance and future karma planet, Jupiter, is transiting your zone of past karma this year, you will be able to capitalise on lucky opportunities, and this will be noticeable on and off throughout the year. Due to your good actions in the past, people will remember what you have done.
To tap your moneymaking powers, you must also learn the art of knowing what to discard and what to keep. This year you will be inundated with brilliant new ideas, but be careful, Scorpio, because not all of them will yield positive results, and the return on investment may not be as good as you expect. Neptune in your fifth zone of creative power, and Mars, one of your ruling planets, in the zone of waste, shows that you may exert a lot of energy trying to get projects up and running only to find that your good intentions amounted to nothing. Carefully plan your work before investing time, energy and love into something that may be a waste of time.
This wastefulness may also come in the form of people who want to use you to achieve their ends. This is shown by the hard aspects to the sixth zone of servants, helpers and contractors. Those of you in business may find that you are too trusting. Some people need to be scrutinised more carefully before you pay them money for work that is going to be less than adequate. This will save you a lot of time and money.
With Jupiter in the upper part of your horoscope in what is considered the most spiritual direction of the zodiac, there is every reason to believe that your work should contain some element of spiritual energy. This means that your work should just be a purely a mechanical, material activity.
Make sure that you discriminate between deserving individuals and those who are trying to use you for their own selfish ends. Unfortunately, some of these people may come in the form of good friends. The moral of the story is that you can tap your best moneymaking powers by choosing activities that will pay off and people who will be worth the investment of your love and energy.
The overriding factor throughout 2014 is the lucky transit of Jupiter in your zone of good fortune. As your finance planet, Jupiter spends considerable time in this lucky part of your horoscope, and for the first time in 12 years, it offers you the opportunity to capitalise on your talents and moneymaking opportunities.
On the 31st of January there is a hard relationship between Jupiter and Pluto, which means that communication needs to be clear if you want to understand the nature of your work and any business deal that emerges at this time.
Unexpected opportunities around the 26th of February and the 20th of April require strong intuition to weed out the men from the boys. While there will be some scintillating gems of professional opportunity, there will also be some clods of earth, which need to be thrown out. Knowing which to pursue will be your task this year.
Politics after the 21st of April may be a problem for you, and unexpected disputes or emotional blackmail will tie you up and limit your ability to achieve as much as you would like to.
You have a settling period from the 25th of May when Jupiter and Saturn provide you with energy for consolidation and a calm and relaxed method for achieving it. Opportunities off shore, or at least from a distance, mean that you shouldn’t discount business deals that involve travel. These could be some of the best opportunities you encounter this year.
An important transit takes place as Jupiter moves into the apex of your horoscope on the 16th of July. This hails the commencement of another one-year cycle where work, business and professional prestige will be paramount, and it’s likely that you will move forward in leaps and bounds. Some further unexpected opportunities occur after the 26th of September when Jupiter and Uranus once again conspire to bring you luck and assistance by way of employees and helpers.
The excellent aspect of Venus and Jupiter on the 5th of December indicates some sort of pay off or a sense of accomplishment for your hard work throughout the year.
Although the period of the 1st of April indicates a strong and possibly unexpected professional move, I’d advise you to think things through before making a decision. When Uranus is involved, impulse may prevail and the ensuing result may not be what you expected.
One of the best transits for a positive and satisfying outcome is after the 16th of July with Jupiter transits through your tenth zone of professional activity. As mentioned earlier, this is a significant transit that occurs only once every 12 years, but as one of your most beneficial planets, it will certainly bring a sense of expansion, confidence and good fortune. At this time you also have the favourable influence of Venus and Mars in the eighth and twelfth zone of your horoscope, which can show help from hidden sources.
This favourable time for promotion or movement in your work is further enhanced by the conjunction of the Sun and Jupiter in your career zone, and your ruling planet Mars finally making its entrance into your Sun sign around the 26th. It appears that July is going to be the best period for you to make a transition, if that is what you choose.
Increased income and the fulfilment of your desires can take place when the Sun moves to the eleventh zone and is in good aspect to other planets. This occurs around the 23rd of August, the 4th of September and up to and including the 14th of September when Mars, your favourable co-ruler, enters your zone of finance.
