SCORPIO (October 23–November 21)
Ruling planet Mars enters straight-shooting Sagittarius January 3, inspiring you to pick up the pace, but Saturn-Pluto conjunct in Capricorn January 12 feels heavy, ponderous, slowing you down at every turn. Best to stop and smell the proverbial roses because fighting the feeling of constriction induced by powers beyond even your control will only frustrate you otherwise. Accept this temporary congestion in your immediate environment as an opportunity to experience the smallest thing, even quotidian pleasures, in a fresh, new way. The square of Mars to Neptune in Pisces January 28 elevates a secret dream into a potential reality.
