Saturn in Scorpio: My Personal To Do List

Leave a comment

This may seem silly but since I’m a Scorpio and since Saturn has entered Scorpio’s first house and will be hanging around for the next almost three years, I decided to make myself a “short” To Do list.

I have a lot to accomplish and Saturn is sort of like a personal trainer. Saturn pushes hard and makes sure we learn the lessons we need to learn and do the things we say we want to do. In a nutshell, Saturn makes sure we stick to our word.

I think Saturn and I will get along just fine.

Val’s to do list for Saturn in Scorpio:

  1. Write write write!!! Get my novels published. Sell my screenplays.
  2. Study. Learn. Get good grades. Graduate.
  3. Lose weight. Join Weight Watchers. Go to meetings. Work out.
  4. Eat healthy. More vegetables. More fruit. Less junk.
  5. Save money. Spend less. Pay off debt.
  6. Meditate. Burn candles. Connect with nature.
  7. Take more baths. Relax. Get massages and reflexology.
  8. Sleep more. Take naps. Rest.
  9. Clean house. Get rid of unnecessary things. Dust. Clean car.
  10. Whiten teeth. Shower. Moisturize. Paint nails. Dress up.
  11. Ignore toxic people. Leave the past behind. Forgive and forget.

Okay, now someone remind me in 3 years to come back and check the list to see if I actually did (and more importantly continued to do) the things I’ve set out to do.

I hope you accomplish everything you set out to accomplish, too.

Happy birthday to me!

One of my favorite things to do on my birthday is look up my “Year Ahead” horoscope. Any other year, I’d look up several, compare and contrast. But today, on this most “epic” day, I have a lot planned so I only had time for one. Here it is:

Your Birthday Year Forecast (via

A Full Moon in your Solar Return chart marks this as a year of great personal significance, when major new beginnings, endings, and activities occur. This period is the culmination of a stage of personal growth and development. Events occurring this year may bring various developments in your emotional, psychological, or spiritual life over the past several years to a head. Relationships are especially important. There can be increased activity in your professional and public life, causing a conflict with your domestic and personal goals. There is little moderation in your life this year. Connections are made or ended; or your job focus may change as one focus fades to make way for a new direction. The year ahead is certain to be a very busy, dynamic, and significant period in your life.

This is an excellent year in which to advance projects revolving around communications – writing, speaking, selling, and so forth. Your reputation may be enhanced through word of mouth. Making new contacts through learning and mental pursuits figures strongly as well.

Your mind is fertile this year, and you are able to blend practical thinking with imagination. You can talk your way into, or out of, almost anything. You can be successful in an artistic area this year. Your great imagination and ability to understand and formulate artistic ideas are big assets.

At times, however, you could struggle with variable energy and motivation levels. Be aware of a tendency to be attracted to impractical ventures. You may find that is too easy to waste your time and energy, perhaps due to a lack of drive or feeling directionless. You may also experience passive-aggressiveness in others, which impacts your life in frustrating ways. Although you may enjoy an increase in your intuitive capabilities, you may also be too open to influence so that fears or delusions impact your ability to see your life clearly. This could also be a year in which you are more creative.

It’s a strong year for recognizing flaws and errors. As long as you don’t forget the “big picture”, you could find you are motivated to channel your mental energy into tasks that require structured and organized thought, tackling projects that you may have found too mundane or downright boring in other years. It’s a strong year for polishing your skills and formal learning.

Mars trine Jupiter in your Solar Return chart infuses the year with enterprising spirit. This is a strong aspect for professional as well as personal opportunities. Your faith in your ability to produce and to win takes you places perhaps never imagined. The energies of this influence favor negotiations, deals, legal matters, reasonable speculation, and travel. This aspect also favors positive outcomes in competitive activities, including sports and business, for example.

You might enjoy increased influence, faith, and insight this year. The desire for more personal significance can motivate you to more ambitiously pursue personal or professional goals. The ability to sway or persuade can be enhanced. You might solve a problem that has been in existence for some time, or capitalize upon a resource that was previously hidden, and take steps towards self-improvement.

You can find yourself in high demand this year, and increased opportunities are likely for new friendships. Communications and learning are favored. The tendency towards putting your energy into impractical ventures, however, should be watched for. If you can channel your energy and be vigilant with self-discipline, you can get a lot done.

That sounds promising! I hope all of my birthday wishes come true in the year ahead. And I hope it proves to be a good year for everyone.

Happy birthday to me! Happy 11.11.11 to you!
