SCORPIO (October 23–November 21)
Mars squares controlling Saturn on January 13 followed by the Sun's conjunction to powerful Pluto on January 14. You are confronted by responsibility, confounded by commitment, and resistant to pressure pushing you to compromise your desires in favor of external, superficial obligations. Much of what passes as duty is merely other people's expectations. It's your job to discern between what you really feel loyalty towards and what is merely the projection of others, or the vestiges of unresolved guilt used to control you. Now is the time to distinguish who truly deserves your energy, your passion, your time, and your attention.
