Meanwhile, the planet Saturn has been touring the area of your chart that focuses on all things hidden and behind the scenes. You've been dealing with a lot of unfinished business that continues to float around in your subconscious parts, and the new characters that have inundated your life (courtesy of Jupiter) triggered a lot of the muck and baggage that you had been trying to repress. Their impact has either been negatively felt or healing in some respects, and thus, the combination of energy from Saturn and Jupiter is asking you to separate the wheat from the chaff. A major theme in 2012 is deciding how you as an individual would like to be reaffirmed, and who's going to help you along the way.
Later in October, Saturn will enter your sign. In doing so, the planet will conjunct your Sun - a conjunction occurs when two planets are in the same sign. Saturn will travel through the constellation of Scorpio through 2015, and this transit will continue a theme of "clearing out." The energy of Saturn can sometimes feel limiting, constricting the energy of the Sun that just wants to be and enjoy life. Therefore, finding the balance will be your task, recognizing where you need to be more disciplined and flexible in order to make room for the new you set to emerge. Just how will you transform yourself this year, dear Scorpio?
Jupiter will remain in your opposing sign of Taurus through June of 2012, so you can expect to encounter more new faces who will challenge you to grow in ways that are expansive. 2012 is set to be a banner year for you, one where you can truly heed the Greek aphorism to “Know Thyself.”
Happy New Year, Scorpio!
