2006 Horoscope - Scorpio

From the start of 2006, you'll be active, busy and amazingly passionate. The best part is that just about everyone will be not only open to your ideas, but also eager and anxious to know what's on your mind and in your heart. For the first two months of the year, you'll be able to talk just about anyone into just about anything -- even if you've already tried and failed in the past. Keep that in mind, regardless of whether your aims are personal, platonic or professional.

Year 2006

LOVE

The past year has been stimulating and fabulous, and your momentum will carry you right into even more passionate encounters in 2006. You'll discover that your excess of happiness and love will attract even more delectable events and circumstances. You'll be able to tackle odd obstacles and woo even those who may have turned you down in the past. With friends, romantic prospects and lovers, you'll find that you wield ironclad logic that will convince them to let you be the one in charge. You'll feel like you're walking through fields full of admirers, which will give you an even greater feeling of confidence and sexiness.

But you'll have to be careful. All that power can be misused, so be attentive in the fall . So if you're involved in a relationship with someone else, or just don't like the other person, end things early. If the feelings are mutual and you're not otherwise committed, take the opportunity to dive off the deep end and embrace a seriously intense bout of attention and adventure. If you're lucky enough to be re-infatuated with your existing partner, a whole new love life will result as your intensity sets you both aflame.

That confident, suave manner of yours, paired with your charmingly childish lack of pretension, will let you be goofy and playful even when you're swimming in deep waters. Your balanced relationships will be the envy of all your friends. Just rely on your knack for shaping experiences into memorable, fun adventures, and nothing will get in the way of pursuing and attaining the partner you desire.

CAREER

You will ring in the New Year on a seriously positive note, and feel more committed than ever to your work and your career. You'll receive a burst of expansive energy that will surprise you with its focused intensity but thrill you nonetheless. Everyone you meet on the job will hear what they want to hear, and you won't even have to think too hard about it. Let others handle financial issues -- they won't be that important this year, and you will have bigger and better things on your mind.

Workplace romance could strike sometime in the fall. If you're open to it, jump in and have a good time. If you'd rather stay focused on your current partner there's no harm done. Regardless, you will find yourself getting along splendidly with everyone at work. One or more of those folks will single you out for formal praise in the fall, so try to look surprised.

Assets and inventory-control might poke into your consciousness a little bit toward the end of the year, but try not to let yourself be too troubled by it all. Think big, and focus on customer experience to the exclusion of almost all else.
