After many months of delay, discomfort and frustration, you’re at a point where you can open up your energy, feel who you are and allow others to do so as well. Yet while Mars in Scorpio is offering you the opportunity to merge with others, I suggest you stay connected to your sense of who you are. One thing you’ve gained during the past year is a new sense of your own presence on the planet, and some clarity about how good it feels to remain centered.
All that you have coming to you may be cloaked in the single thought that you’re about to lose something. So if you sense the possibility of loss, such as loss of control, or a change in a situation, or of being over-powered, such may be precisely the illusion you need to look through and walk past.
Negotiation is an art, and it’s one you can now do well. Art is more about feeling than it is technique. The first thing to do is to feel where people are coming from. This is the most valuable information you can have in your possession. People do what they are motivated to do. Once you know what gets them going, you can offer them that.
Aspire to what has lasting value. Since the future is becoming increasingly difficult to see, you must do this in the present. Yet this does not merely mean going for immediate satisfaction. In material goods, purchase what is of high quality, of real use, and built to last. Yet where you invest your energy must also match the other kind of value — that which you personally possess.
What a relief to have turned a whole new chapter in your life. How exactly did that happen? Well, it seems you did your best to work through some deeply pressing questions on a mental or intellectual level, until you realized that was not going to get you anywhere. Another principle took over: that of balance.
Certain relationship situations seem to be at a boiling point, and you may feel like people are transgressing your boundaries left, right and center. It’s up to you, therefore, to be the gatekeeper in your own life. The challenge here is about your emotional investment in those who might cross some line that you may not have clearly articulated. To speak up may feel like you’re betraying someone.
