You're a powerful person and a force of nature in 2018, Scorpio! The year begins with your planet Mars conjoined with influential Jupiter in Scorpio. Once you decide on a plan of action, nothing and no one will be able to slow you down.
On New Year's Day, the sun conjoins your modern ruling planet, Pluto. Your intensity could scare people away.
To ease this, pleasant Venus also conjoins the sun, all in earth sign Capricorn. Big success and popularity are readily available this year.
This year's Mercury retrogrades are all in fire signs. The third retrograde, in November and early December, is mostly in Sagittarius but ends in the late degrees of Scorpio. This might affect you more, probably in your social or educational life.
Mars is retrograde from late June through late August, all in Capricorn. Be more thoughtful in your career efforts, and emerge in September ready to set the world back on fire!
