Scorpio Forecast for August 2014
By Susan Miller
Most people don't enjoy looking for a new job, but in your case, this month you might find the interview process exciting. When Jupiter entered Leo and your solar tenth house of fame and honors last month, you suddenly had the very finest chart for career success of any sign of the zodiac. You waited twelve years for this honor, and happily, this phase just starting up now will last a long time, until next year, August 11, 2015.
This month is more special than most, for you had the help of a new moon in Leo that will help you unlock all the goodies that Jupiter has for you. New moons are powerful, for without a new moon, you can't quite access the goodness of Jupiter. You have that special edge now, and that new moon will be strong for ten days. This month you can be in touch with all sorts of influential VIPs. Before the energy of that new moon fades, schedule appointments during the first week of August. You certainly won't have any trouble getting your foot in the door to see the people you need to see. The position you will discuss will be very prestigious, and certainly represent a major step up from the job you had before.
I am enthusiastic about the new moon in Leo of last month, July 26, because it is the new best, most glittering new moon of the year. The way new moons work is that you need to plant the seed at this time - begin talks - but you do not necessarily need to capture the job yet. Good jobs take time to be awarded, and usually require a lot of interviews. What matters is that you begin your first talks with one or more companies now. In astrology, what matters is when you take your first steps toward any endeavor - that is when you "give birth" to it.
One stellar day for interviewing or contacting a company will be August 8, when Uranus will send a shimmering beam to the Sun in your house of career honors, awards, and achievement. Luck is on your side on that day, so you may hear good news, and when it arrives, it will come out of the blue. Be sure you are interviewing on this day, or the day before, on August 7.
I know that most people do not like looking for a job. It's like apartment or house hunting - it take time - and most people don't relish that either. With finding a new position, you need to fine-tune your resume for every opportunity you find, you need to go to a lot of interviews, and you may feel there is always a lot of uncertainty. I get it, and I so sympathize, but this time your efforts will pay off! Scorpio likes to be in control, but there is no certainty when you interview for a job. However, you have such a stellar chart, you can walk away with the big prize position! It will be worth your time and efforts, for you literally have such a competitive edge!
Here is something else that is special and that is also working for you. Mars has been in your twelfth house for nearly eight months, and finally moved out of that into your first house, when it moved into Scorpio on July 25 to stay until September 13. In the twelfth house, where your ruler was circulating for nearly eight months, you may have been working on a confidential project that you could not tell others about. Or may have been writing a book or doing research on a project that you were not ready to show the world. Or you may have felt that it was hard for you to get the attention of important people, and wondered why things were not clicking and turned out to be so hard to accomplish. That all changes now.
Having Mars in Scorpio makes you Simple Simon and will give you an enormous competitive advantage. (Do you remember that child's game? Whatever Simple Simon said to do, everyone in the game had to follow the instruction precisely and fast. Those dictates were always arm and leg movements. Anyone who didn't follow the dictate fast enough was out of the game.) You have that kind of clout these days. You've waited two years for Mars to be in your sign, considered an enviable place for Mars to be for you. Mars will give you courage, drive, and a will to succeed. You will have the determination to go for the job you want with all your heart, and your passion and enthusiasm will decide the outcome. You have so many reasons to look for a new position with confidence! The deck is stacked in your favor!
Keep in mind that Mars is your ruling plant, a position Mars shares with Pluto. Most signs do not have two rulers, an ancient one and a modern one (because Pluto was discovered in 1933), but you do. When both your rulers are in sync, you tend to do best. Put a big gold star on August 15.
Three days later, August 18, you will have a rare aspect, Venus conjunct Jupiter in your house of fame and honors. This aspect is so rare that it takes twelve years to find Jupiter conjunct Venus in your reputation and career sector. It's a five-star day! Make sure you make an initiation on that day! A middleman, such as a job broker or headhunter, may be helpful to you on this day.
Over the weekend of August 9-10, a full moon period, you may have a sudden breakthrough involving property or housing. You may need to move, and if so, you would find new space, right out of the blue, and it looks like one you would like very much. Whether you rent or buy, this weekend finds you making a final decision about your housing or other property. Alternatively, you may have been going through a renovation, or a major paint job, or other long-term project that a professional has been doing on your house or apartment, and now it will finish. If it's not the physical home you are thinking about, you may be thinking about your mother or father. You may have a visit with your parent or find out that your parent did something incredibly sweet for you.
The full moon will be in Aquarius, 18 degrees, and arrive August 10, but you can feel the full moon's culminating affects four days before or after the date it arrives. Uranus will be beautifully angled to this full moon, suggesting happy surprises galore are in store for you in regard to home / family and other property. Uranus rules Aquarius, the place of the full moon, which is why your home situation will be so very favored.
After a month of focusing on serious concerns - housing and career - you will be ready to kick back and relax. That's why you will enjoy the new moon of August 25 in Virgo 2 degrees, for it will bring you in contact with many friends and even casual contacts. Scorpio is generally not considered a gregarious sign, so you tend to shun parties and crowded events. At month's end, make the effort, dear Scorpio, as there will be benefits of all kinds by rubbing shoulders with others. If you belong to a club (a real life club), then attend meetings and mixers. Get involved with social media too, for you never know who you will meet on LinkedIn or Twitter.
If your birthday falls on October 23, plus four days or minus 2 days, you will benefit from this new moon the most. The same is true if you have Virgo rising, or natal planets in Virgo, Pisces, Cancer, Scorpio, Taurus, or Capricorn at 2 degrees - you will benefit from this new moon in a variety of ways. Allow a tolerance of plus or minus five degrees.
This day, August 25, has other things going on at the same time, separate from the new moon. Your ruling planet Mars (the action planet that says go!) will conjoin Saturn (the cautious planet that says stop and reconsider). Of these two planets, the slower orbiting planet will win, and that is Saturn. Stop and think, and take your time - no one will make you rush.
Also on the same day, August 25, Venus in Leo will receive a golden beam from surprise planet Uranus. Venus is in your house of reputation this month from August 12 to September 4. This gives more testament of just how popular you will be with VIPs. In case you needed any more encouragement than I have already given you, here is another reason to have confidence. Uranus is in your work-a-day assignments sector (sixth house) and will link to your house of honors, awards, achievement, and fame. This tells me that if you do a one-time project with a company, it can lead you to more projects. See what happens on August 25. A friend may be instrumental in helping you find this opportunity.
You have a sensational month ahead, but nothing will happen unless you reach for the stars. You need to show the universe you are serious about getting that new career spot, so leave the house, dear Scorpio. Pluck the golden apple off the bough of the tree.
In terms of romance, Mars in Scorpio will give you charisma and magnetism to spare. The ancients wrote that Mars in your sign will also make you more attractive. Dear Scorpio, you have so much going for you this month that I can only imagine you will love every minute of it.
You now find yourself in one of the most important months of the year for career success, thanks to the move of Jupiter, giver of gifts and luck, to Leo for the first time in over a decade. Jupiter will spend nearly thirteen months in your house of honors, awards, achievement, and fame, truly wonderful news, for Jupiter brings reward, opportunity, money, publicity, power, and position.
To unlock Jupiter's bounty, you need a new moon in the same prestigious career house. You just had it, July 26, and that new moon will continue to open doors for you in early August. It is critical you be at home base to take advantage of this extraordinary trend. While Jupiter will be with you for many months, you won't have quite the special help from other planets that you will have in August, so get started now by telling others you are open to entertaining offers and to lining up interviews. You are about to re-ignite your career in a big way, dear Scorpio.
To add to your presence, Mars, your ruler, and planet of high energy, courage, and drive, recently moved into Scorpio for the first time since August-September 2012. Having Mars on your side is considered to be a major advantage over competitors, another reason you should now go after your career dream with passion. Be confident you can garner attention and have VIPs add your name to their short list of candidates. When Mars tours your sign, it is an instant signal you are beginning a new two-year cycle, so you can count on a fresh start. Mars is now moving at top speed, having been retrograde from the start of March through most of May, but over the past weeks, it has taken time for Mars to rebuild his strength. You are in an enviable position now because Mars is moving at top speed and can help you in a big way.
You may be negotiating a deal, contract, or lease near August 15, when Mars and Pluto, both your rulers, will be divinely angled, helping you reach accord.
Three days later, August 18, you will have a rare aspect, Venus conjunct Jupiter in your house of fame and honors. This is so rare, this aspect only happens once a year, but only once in twelve years in your reputation and career sector. This is a five-star day! Dear Scorpio, you have the best month ever for seeking new employment. Wow!
Do not let things go too long, however, as you may hit a snag on August 25, when your ruler, Mars, meets with Saturn. You will need time to untangle a knotty clause or situation, or a decision that seems to have you of two minds. Take your time.
Your home will be a big focus at the full moon August 10, when you may be signing for new furniture or directing the end of an intense renovation, repair, or paint job. You seem to be under some strain at the time, as Saturn will be in hard angle to the Sun and full moon. Pace yourself and stay optimistic. It is possible family members will need you too, adding to the load on your shoulders. Still, Uranus has a few happy surprises up his sleeve for you, so if seeking a home-related solution or furniture / landscaping / design option, a marvelous solution may appear out of thin air.
August will be strongly about career progress, but a lovely social influence will enter at the new moon August 25. This is the reason why you must push hard for professional progress in early-to-mid August. Once you get to this new moon at month's end, it will be time to kick back and enjoy the company of friends. If you have done everything right for your career earlier in the month, you will be eager to take a break by month's end, and you will enjoy your time off all the more because you earned it. You are an intense sign, not given to quick turnaround, so it may take you more time than most to let go. Knowing this, get things polished off in early August and start to slow down in late month.
Dates to note: SCORPIO
Most important dates for love, meetings, or actions: August 3, 4, 8, 11, 12, 15, 20, 21, 30, and 31.
In the first week of August, leave no stone unturned in moving forward on building a new chapter in your career. You are in your finest period of the year for professional growth, and quite likely the best of the decade. If you don't extend yourself, you may not uncover your golden opportunity.
From August 12 to September 6, Venus will enter your tenth house of fame and honors, making you charming and engaging during interviews and presentations. You can make a good impression on higher-ups or VIPs. It's also time to shop for clothes and accessories that you would wear to work. If you like, book a spa treatment this month to look rested and radiant.
On August 7 Mars and Neptune may produce a very romantic day.
On or near August 10, the full moon, you will see a culmination to your family and home endeavor that you have been working on for some time. This area of your chart also rules your parents. Call, or spend time with your mom.
You will have an opportunity to branch out and discover new contacts at the new moon, on August 25. Perhaps there is a new networking event that will allow you to meet the right people to help you with current projects. Although please be aware that there may be some obstacles encountered along the way when Mars joins Saturn. Allow for extra time and flexibility of plans if you plan to attend a convention or meeting during the 2-3 days surrounding the new moon.
Mars will tour Scorpio all month, giving you courage, presence, and drive. You are starting a new two-year cycle, so it is an exciting time for you. Plant seeds.
Be aware of a potential miscommunication with the group you belong to, on August 29, due to the Sun's dispute with Neptune. It could be something as simple as a wrong meeting date or a mixup in paperwork.

The Year Ahead 2014 Astrological Calendar
By Susan Miller
My Year Ahead 2014 collectible calendar is now $9.99 (at a 45% discount, from original price $17.99) plus shipping, any applicable tax
Calendars are used to mark time, but have you ever had a calendar that helped you use your time productively? My new Year Ahead 2014 Calendar can do just that. I write every word myself in this stunning calendar with original fine art by socialite, author, and fine artist Gloria Vanderbilt, mother of newsman Anderson Cooper, and great grandchild of railroad entrepreneur Cornelius Vanderbilt. (Grand Central Station was originally her great grandfather's business headquarters.)
Gloria Vanderbilt, now almost 90 years young, licensed the reproduction rights to her critically acclaimed artwork to Susan Miller who self-published her calendar. The inks are rich, the paper heavy, glossy, and snow white, allowing Gloria's paintings to jump off the page. Each month, from January 2014 through the extra bonus month, January 2015, is found an inspirational quote from Gloria, centering on her philosophy of living life fully and creatively. With fourteen of Gloria's paintings, this calendar will soon become a collector's edition and will not be reprinted when stocks are gone.
Aside from having happy, vibrant art to look at all year, The Year Ahead 2014 calendar has many other uses, unlike any you have had in a calendar before. On every important day of each month I list the aspect and what it means, in easy to understand laymen's language. This means the next time you are about to make an important appointment, and the VIP asks you, "Do you want to come in Monday or Thursday?" you can say you will consult your calendar and know immediately the day to choose.
In a year like 2014, where sparkling aspects will stand side by side difficult ones, this calendar will not be a luxury but a necessity.
Also included in the calendar are:
- All the start and end dates of the retrograde planets in 2014,
- Detailed discussion of the new and full moons (new!)
- The date when planets move into new signs (and how long they will be in that sign), all listed on the same day entry
- The planetary aspects of the four eclipses due in 2014, and explanation of what each eclipse will bring.
No more surprises! Be in the know about upcoming events, so that you can plan your biggest initiations. This calendar is a "must" to keep with you all year, and is available here, from Susan's publisher, but not in bookstores or other retailers. Get it now, while you can: $9.99 plus tax and shipping. We ship to all nations of the world: http://bit.ly/186zM0i

A New Service: WiFive.us
Don't we all love a bargain?
We all want to know about the deals being offered nearby in our neighborhoods to save money. I found a way when a brilliant entrepreneur, Luis Sanchez, came to see me to show me he had developed a way of seeing all the various deal-of the-day websites that are featuring discounts on food, entertainment, boutiques, and other establishments, all in one click. Traveling? All you need to do is enter the zip code of your new neighborhood as you travel each day and you can see the deals that may be just across the street from your hotel.
The company is called Wifive.us and is ready to use today. It is a New York-based startup with a location-based search engine that gives you access to thousands of local online deals in a single site.
For now, Wifive.us is only available in the United States. It covers most of the deals and services you would see from various sources (Groupon, Amazon, Google deals, and so forth) all at once, so you don't have to go from site to site to find a deal that appeals to you, as Luis would humorously say, "until your head hurts." There is no registration necessary, and no useless emails to stuff your inbox each day.
Just type your address or ZIP code and get the deals you want when you want them. You pull in your information, which is far better than having many emails pushed to you. Try it and like the service on Facebook!
A word about the web address of WiFive.us
You may be wondering, what exactly is .US?
You might have thought the domain ending .us would only be only for government agencies and schools, but since 2002, individuals, businesses, churches, and non-profits have adopted .US web addresses to make their mark on the Internet. The .US is a new domain ending.
Just remember the name of the new service that no doubt you will be using quite a bit: pronounced as "wi-five-dot-us" otherwise seen as: http://www.wifive.us
Live Overseas? Or, don't have an iPhone, Android, or Samsung Galaxy?
Get all 12 of my daily horoscopes each day by email or pick yours up each day on special password-protected site.
