The inner planets and their transits, dear Scorpio, deeply influence the matters of the heart within your overall play of energies from the outer planets. The lovescope predictions are not just about love, romance, attraction and sexuality, but also enlighten us of things that you enjoy and events that bring happiness to your heart. However, to truly relish the offers, all Scorpios must understand the overall scheme of fate that the primary outer planets have for you in 2018.
Jupiter has been in Scorpio from October 2017, your own sign - and will remain till November 2018, when it enters Sagittarius. This 13-month transit of the bountiful Jupiter happens once in twelve years, and indicates prosperity. Jupiter, the planet of plenty, will motivate, inspire, and work tirelessly to serve you hope, love, creativity, power, pelf, plenty of goodies, and finally, spirituality. Often, Jupiter offers too much to grab, and the tangible benefits are only obtained in the next transit - November 2018 onwards. Jupiter, at its brilliant best, has initiated a multi-year cycle of prosperity for Scorpio.
On the other hand, Saturn, the planet of responsibility and duty, has been in Capricorn from December 2017, your 3rd House, your sector of communication and intellectual interests - and will remain till March 2020. This Saturn's transit for more than two years means challenges in irreversible, monumental proportions in your communication skills that will be thrust upon you to test your ability to handle pressure. This is a tricky and unpredictable astrological position that clouds your daring, guts, and competitiveness. It indicates lack of cooperation from family members, neighbours and siblings, unpredictability in relationships, and your endeavours and ventures may be thwarted or delayed. This is especially challenging for students, teachers, lecturers, writers, bloggers, journalists, and sales and marketing people - who will have to work harder, and deal with greater demands being placed on them. With two eclipses occuring in your 10th House of career, expect changes and shakeups - that can go both ways. Success will only be theirs, who will exert patience and perseverance, take their own sweet time before deciding a major issue, be open to making changes and course-correct, and willing to put in hard work, not just extra effort. Along with Jupiter in your own sign, there can be rich rewards and recognition, and fulfilling career activities - although this is not an especially strong career year. As additional challenges to test your character and to distract you, your hopes may not be realized, children may cause sorrow, and you may become frustrated.

Within your (above-explained) overall play of energies for 2018, the noteworthy inner planet influences on all Scorpios in 2018 are highlighted below, with predictions for love, attraction, and matters of the heart for Scorpio:
Venus will be in Scorpio from 9 September to 31 October, but turns Retrograde from 5 October. And again, from 2 December to 7 January 2019. Venus is the planet of love, luxury, comforts, and everything that is beautiful. It brings romance and aroused senses to you when it resides in your own sign. For Scorpio, this period leads to alliances, links, journeys, and even visits to holy places.
Mercury will be in Scorpio from 10 October to 31 October. And again, from 1 December to 12 December, when Mercury enters in Retrograde motion and turns direct from 6 December. Mercury is the planet of communication, travel, creativity, and pushes you forward when it is in your own sign. For Scorpio, this period brings positive indicators for joint finance, investments, socializing, love, children, marriage, as well as divorce.
Mars will be in Scorpio from 9 December 2017 to 26 January. Mars is the planet of vitality, adventure, and courage. It brings more powerful energy to you when it resides in your own sign. For Scorpio, these periods stimulate your pace of work, and indicate promotions, perks, loans, funds, and investments.
The period from 10 October to 31 October is a double bonanza, and all Scorpios are advised to go for it. You will not be disappointed in almost anything that you seek - love, romance, career moves, money, you name it - but luck, as they say, favours the brave.
Other power periods are: 18 March to 15 May and 13 August to 10 Septemer when the planets offer love, luck, romance, and all goodies of life. 16 November to 31 December is a period of crowning glory, when most of your wishes get fulfilled.
Also, Mars and Venus make rare retrogrades this year - unlike other planets, they move backward only once in two years. Mars is retrograde from 26 June to 27 August, and Venus is retrograde from 5 October to 16 November. These periods are good times for reflection and review, rather than overt action. Old flames, lovers or partners from the past, and past actions come to the fore, sometimes in imagination and at times, physically. These are delicate periods for the mind, and it is wise to stay away from all major decisions and commitments - from marriage to property, from buying to selling. Venus is partly retrograde in Scorpio - pointing to some review or returning to a previous condition in love, relationships, and finances. There can be some changes of heart or review of your feelings at this time. For some, a past love can be in strong focus. Also, Mercury is retrograde partly in Scorpio - pointing to a slowdown or period of review, and you may seem a little mysterious or hard to reach!
For Scorpio, the above periods summarize the significant predictions for 2018. However, these are mere indicators based on solar-scopic readings, and not Natal Chart based real Horoscopic readings. Thus, the above observations are neither perfect nor accurate. The actual interplay of planetary energies is likely to be enhanced or diluted, based on individual Natal Charts. Nevertheless, we encourage you to direct your actions accordingly to take advantage of the energies at play, and contain yourself from avoidable temptations and altercations.
- When Jupiter transits Scorpio (October 2017 - November 2018), we tend to value intimacy more than usual. This can be a time for embracing our sexuality, and exploring some adventurousness on intimate levels. We are not impressed or patient with flakiness, and care less about social or financial standing than we do for character and integrity. Thus, showcasing committed, passionate, magnetic, powerful, and sensual qualities bring greater success in love and relationship. Also, there can be more coupling and breakups during this period, and improvements to relationships now can involve some breaking down of existing structures and intensive work on self-improvement.
- When Saturn transits Capricorn (December 2017 - March 2020), love and relationship may be either a little more business-like, or more traditional and defined. We tend to consider and value long-term viability - more than usual. Thus, being reliable, on time, and showing respect are appreciated among partners, and bring greater success in love and relationship. Also, we prefer a more conservative, classy, utilitarian or simply elegant fashion.
