All the good stuff in the Skywatch today becomes part of your Solar Return, Scorpio.
This is the day when the Sun returns to his original place in your birth chart - we create a new chart at that moment, called a Solar Return, which gives us clues about the energy and timing cycles you are in over the next twelve months, Scorpio.
Your hero in this new chart is Mercury, the planet that rules your mental side, and all forms of communications. Think of it that if you looked at your intelligence biorhythm it would be off the chart in the months ahead. Yes, Mercury is Retrograde - you can’t be sloppy in your thinking.
But the energy of practical Saturn and creative Neptune added to your mental gifts means you can make intelligent, well thought out actions and commitments. At the least, read Think and Grow Rich, and you are bound to find some nuggets to help you grow and prosper. Feed your mind, Scorpio.
As times change.
You could make a dream come true in the year ahead, Scorpio.
The powerful and fairly rare Saturn Neptune sextile in your new Solar Return gives you a stellar balance between practical ambition and creative imagination in the months ahead. This can be the year when you break through old walls of doubt and uncertainty to push your goals into sight. Yes, yes, yes.
You have lucky Jupiter in home sign Sagittarius to help you sell your ideas and thinking this year in a way you couldn’t before. Double-check the details, but Mercury Rx in this chart of your new year will not be a problem if you pay close attention to the plans and road map you are following.
A surge of exceptionally good energy will give your life and efforts a big boost this Spring. Do what you can now to clear your desk and life to be ready for something better.

A year of changes is upon you, Scorpio. All due to Uranus, the planet that rules changes, sitting opposite your Sun in your new Solar Return. This once in 84-year event sparks you to find more freedom in your life and times and is an influence that will make the young ones much more rebellious.
Uranus is also the planet that inspires our originality and can help you make brilliant decisions in the months ahead. There's also a lovely pair of planets in Scorpio in this chart of your new year. Clever Mercury and charming Venus join forces in a conjunction to give you the gift of gab and the ability to sell your ideas and plans to others like never before. Speak up, Scorpio, and reach for the best inside you.
Times have changed.
Lovely Venus is in the spotlight in your new Solar Return, late Libra and early Scorpio birth signs.
The ruler of love and money is in water sign Scorpio in this chart of your new year, suggesting a year when you can heal up matters in existing relationships, or meet a new love, and find new sources of income and benefits.
All more likely as Venus makes a trine to creative and romantic Neptune and sextiles powerful Pluto in your new SR. You’ve got lucky Jupiter in his home sign of Sagittarius helping you be at the right place at the right time in the months ahead. And psychic Neptune in home sign Pisces as well.
That means dreams and visions can be evocative and helpful over this next year — pay attention.

It’s time to let go, Libra.
The main event in your new Solar Return is your Sun sitting in a square to powerful Pluto. Pluto is the transformer who prompts most folks to shed their skin (Pluto rules snakes) in some way and to let go of the people and situations in your life that no longer serve your health and growth.
This is a once-in-a-lifetime event in your astrology and can leave you wiser, stronger and tempered like steel when this year is over. My favorite astrologer, Lois Rodden, says of this event and time in your life: “As you conclude and resolve repressive or compelling obstacles you can acquire a more powerful insight into the direction of the cycle you’re now beginning.”
Most helpful is that you have Venus and Mars in healing Scorpio which will hopefully increase your will power and passion to move on and make your life more fulfilling.

There’s an unusual and challenging square in your new Solar Return, Libra.
Realistic and serious Saturn sits in a square to your Sun in this chart of your new year. Saturn tests you and can give you benefits in the future if you pay your dues and work hard in the months ahead.
Helpful is that lucky Jupiter is still in powerful home sign Sagittarius and that eager and determined Mars is also in Libra in your new SR. Your ruler, Venus, is in passionate Scorpio turning up the heat and passion in your relationships which can be good or bad depending on how honest you have been and whether the connection you have is healthy.
Scorpio tends to extremes but can help you heal old problems if you want to keep the relationship intact. Don’t depend on quick fixes or take your eyes off the brass ring this year, Libra. Your grit and determination can pay off in spades in the months ahead.
