2016 is your year to demolish any barriers that have been holding you back, Scorpio! With clear thinking and sheer force of will, you can accomplish what your heart desires and what your head knows you need.
Have more patience and charm this year, too. This assures that more problems are solved than created and that you make more friends and allies than you risk losing.
Your most productive time may be in the spring when Mars is retrograde in Scorpio. This slow, strong Mars will make you even more methodical and irresistible.
Tenderness and tact are also highlighted skills for you in 2016. Be realistic and kind, especially in the late summer and early fall when Jupiter and Mercury increase your people skills. Watch as obstacles and opposition melt away under your gaze.
It will be in the realm of family and friends that you may see the most progress. When things are going smoothly at home, career and public life are much easier. What a dynamite year!
You'll both agree on all the big issues in 2016, Scorpio, especially those of material or practical concern. There will be plenty of discussion and it may get tiring at times but you'll be glad that everything is so clear.
The four Mercury retrogrades (in January, May, September, and December) present many possibilities for misunderstandings and confusion. Just be patient with one another. Avoid getting hopelessly stubborn, especially in January and February, and concentrate on just getting the facts straight.
If early in the year your partner has trouble being understood by others, don't instantly rush to the rescue. Be there with solid moral support instead. It may prove to be nothing, as can happen whenever Neptune is involved.
If an inconvenient illness or temporary job issue arises in April or May, remember that you have resources, love, and one another. This too shall pass.
Summer is gloriously romantic, and the late fall is bright with clever fun that only the two of you can share.
In 2016, there's a lot of celestial support for your career and money situation, Scorpio. Take things one step at a time, let situations fully define themselves, and then bend them to your will.
All four Mercury retrogrades are in Earth signs, to your advantage. Scorpio may be a Water sign, but your modern ruler Pluto is in Capricorn all year. Nothing can rock your world too much this year, and if you are tumbled out of a comfortable spot, you'll quickly find something better.
Be more in charge of your personal finances, too, especially in the last two months of the year. If you're not already careful about saving, you'll still be able to see the big financial picture while dealing with the details, deadlines, and dotted lines.
Simply being responsible will take you far in 2016 and into 2017, Scorpio!
