STARGAZER WEEKLY HOROSCOPES JANUARY 25 – 31, 2015

The plot thickens this week as Venus enters Pisces (Tuesday January 27th), further highlighting the Neptunian dissolution/illusion and enhancing spiritual, creative and imaginative pursuits enormously. Mars and Venus transiting here offer a great deal of inspiration, a willingness to transcend tangible reality in order to see what isn’t and what could be. The Sun and Mercury in Aquarius indicate a willingness to experiment and innovate in a way that excludes ego attachment towards the results of what we attempt right now. By late February – early March, when Mercury transits Pisces, we will be prepared to articulate the visionary experiences germinating in the present tense. The conjunctions to Neptune (Mars – January 19th; Venus – February 1st) will be the most illustrative of this germination, and visualization, meditation and pure inspiration are very illuminating around these dates, particularly if your personal planets or angles are implicated. (Neptune is currently at 6 Pisces.) From the Stargazer Atlas reading for Venus in Pisces: “A sense of atonement is present in your relationships, and you can shroud your affections in mystique and ambiguity. This propensity lies in a fear of truth, which may reveal undesirable imperfections. Your affectionate nature is sensitive, kind, compassionate and sympathetic. Lofty romanticism is present, and you seek idealized beauty and love relationships. This leads to escapism and evasive tactics: very few if anyone can live up to the fantasy or projection you have built up and in the absence of such a connection, you may subvert your desires through alcohol, drugs and the like. Creativity and aesthetic abilities are greatly enhanced, and in the presence of positive aspects, great artistry can manifest as a result of this placement.” Uranus sits in close conjunction to the South Node, dynamically informing us of which has become ossified in our psyche and thus seeks to be eradicated or reconciled, probably in a not-so-gentle way. This can be evidenced by what seems to be an accident or an unexpected development (end of a relationship, losing a job), the kind of stormy culminations that usually occur around eclipses. These always, (despite how dramatic they seem in the present tense,) tune us into a better outcome by shaking us from the rigid or stagnant patterns we need to remove ourselves from in order to evolve, ready or not! Circumstances may feel contentious, and the best thing to do here is go with it. Do not waste your time fighting for something or someone who clearly wants out. Sayonara, peace out, adios! Just let it go. In a fascinating turn of events, here comes Mercury retrograde… to the rescue? From Aquarius, Mercury at 13 degrees on Wednesday taps into the Uranus – South Node conjunction (by sextile). From this position Mercury is in trine to the North Node in Libra, acting as a conduit of information regarding our future and past simultaneously. Communication may be slowed or hindered under the auspices of retrograde motion, but nonetheless a very revealing insight or conversation occurs that really transforms the dynamics. From Aquarius, this assistance comes from our friends, through our networks, (perhaps even the Social Network,) and associates with whom we share our hopes, aspirations and dreams. Innovation and an ability to keep the ego detached from the outcome is relevant and likely assists in finding a solution. To keep the karmic scales in balance, if you do in fact find that others aid you in some way, stay engaged: if you withdraw into your own affairs (Aries – South Node), you lose out on the valuable opportunity to make a meaningful connection through/to others, which is paramount right now, (Libra – North Node). The resounding message here is that we can accomplish so much more together than we can alone. This gets reinforced on Friday, when Sun – Mercury renew their cycle at 10 Aquarius, augmented by a socially oriented Gemini Moon all trine to North Node Libra. At the mid-way point of the Mercury retrograde cycle, the major indications have been revealed, and we can set the agenda for the upcoming cycle, which extends to April 10th. More information will come to light soon enough, and the extended transit of Mercury sextile Saturn (February 6th – 20th) will allow for a very through appraisal and pragmatic approach towards the realization of long range goals and objectives being revealed through Saturn in Sagittarius. This is a highly auspicious development that enhances commercial and business affairs in particular. GET THE MOST OUT OF YOUR HOROSCOPE BY READING FOR BOTH YOUR SUN SIGN and ASCENDANT.

ARIES: Finances can get a boost if you follow an intuitive hunch at the beginning of the week. Inspiration proves a good guide. Social interaction and activity prove your best bet this week, with sparkling connectivity Wednesday showing you the way through a highly charged if not personal crisis of sorts. You act with real grit and determination towards your professional aims towards the end of the week, perhaps operating strategically behind the scenes… for now. Be more wary of conducting a love relationship in secrecy, as you will soon realize there is much more at stake than you realize. Your home can provide a sanctuary or haven for a meaningful partnership to flourish on Saturday. This is also a positive time to attend to decorating or adjusting the energy of your domestic space to attract love and peace into your life.

TAURUS: Friends and those who share your vision can help guide you through a critical period of self awareness at the onset of the week. Working towards a collective creative goal will prove instrumental in maintaining a sense of positive cohesion where your identity is concerned. The end of the week may prove challenging regardless. Professional matters continue to be illuminated, with significant developments on Friday. News from abroad or in relation to educational or publishing goals galvanize you to take action on your most dearly held aspirations or dreams. Friends come with benefits over the coming weeks, and you’ll enjoy the company of many people in this phase. A propensity towards withdrawal should be avoided this week, though on the other hand, eradicating a crippling habit or behavior (and sometimes this must occur behind closed doors,) should be embraced.

GEMINI: You continue to delve into the nature of your destiny, even though the path to get there has not been illuminated yet. A very important conversation occurs towards the end of the week that allows you to comprehensively appraise the situation and embrace a bit of clarity. A partner (either in business or pleasure) plays a significant role, both now and in the coming weeks. You have the fortitude to relinquish friendships and alliances that no longer serve your true calling in this phase. Self expression is paramount and will divert your attention away from group activities. A break can be both cathartic and liberating. Instincts will guide your financial and career planning next weekend, allow your heart to lead the way to abundance, material or otherwise.

CANCER: It seems as though you require a new strategy or set of tactics in regard to the way in which you pursue professional objectives, perhaps a completely new career path beacons. What ever isn’t working, (and is most likely tied to the been there – done that, method) is ready to be ditched and forgotten. Your most appealing prospects seem to be coming from far off your usual radar, and the broader you cast your net the more likely you are to make an enticing discovery. Collaboration proves highly beneficial on Friday, and you can engage a partner by getting off the beaten track. Next weekend is highly favorable for a pleasure trip or to indulge in a romantic getaway. Monitor health matters carefully in this phase, however, as early warning signs may present themselves as early as Friday.

LEO: While it’s always a good thing to think global, you need to hone the focus on the local and take action in your community before you concern yourself with the great wide yonder. A professional turning point early in the week suggests you prepare for a very personal culmination occurring next week, during the Full Moon in your sign on the 3rd. A partnership has also been contesting for your attention, and feelings of uncertainty are replaced with indications of where the future seeks to lead you towards the end of the week. Your intuition is very strong in this phase, clues on Saturday will be incredibly revealing.

VIRGO: A very romantic ambience prevails in this period, and you’ll likely feel graced by the presence of love in the coming weeks. (Prominent Lunations in March speak volumes to what is beginning to transpire at this time.) One area of concern is finances, particularly those you share or receive through a spouse or partner, and there can be alarming circumstances in relation to this situation. A conversation mid week can avert a crisis. Positive professional indications Thursday and Friday help you get on track, especially where you have been unfocused or uncertain on the job. Settle a domestic issue that crops up swiftly, so you can tune into the powerful romantic vibes on tap Friday into Saturday.

LIBRA: You may begin to feel irksome tension in a close relationship, particularly if it has become stagnant or rigid. There can be a fight or flight element to what transpires this week into next, though finding a solution through play, creativity and leisure activities is possible, otherwise a child may play a role. Look to mid week for a revealing flash of insight into reviving a love connection. You reach a financial turning point at the beginning of the week, this pertains to money you receive from a bank, through settlements or alimony or as dividends from work you did in the past. Very positive conditions on the job offer professional breakthroughs next weekend.

SCORPIO: A significant change regarding your routine, health, productivity or job is due this week. A situation that has become stagnant or overly repetitive may be abandoned, though domestic concerns will weigh on your consciousness midweek and offer a potential breakthrough. Friday reveals a significant insight into the future of your living situation. Feelings about a relationship, and regarding love in general are stimulated in this period. If you have not found someone special, there are ample opportunities ahead. The expression of desire comes easily next weekend.

SAGITTARIUS: Enlisting the help of others can be productive for you this week, communication goes very well Wednesday and Thursday as you can easily convey what you seek for the future in this period. An issue regarding transportation, your daily commute or even an internet problem begins to reconcile towards the end of the week. This is also a good time to clear up a misunderstanding with a neighbor or sibling. The domestic and residential realm continues to be emphasized. With Venus coming to inhabit this sector of your chart, an early Spring cleaning or spruce can be on order. Consider a Feng Shui treatment: shades of green will bring harmony to your surroundings.

CAPRICORN: A pervasive domestic issue comes into sharp focus this week, with the financial picture clearing in the second half to aid you in making a better determination about what the future potentially holds. You make demonstrable progress mid week. Communication and day to day life, as well as social activities are favored in this period. Expressing your feelings to a partner, potential or otherwise, stimulates a remarkable romantic opportunity next weekend. The channels of communication are wide open. You stand to be very persuasive Friday, and can really go after what you want, asserting your power productively. Feelings of self worth can come into conflict nonetheless. Be gentle towards yourself.

AQUARIUS: The pleasure principal is set to high mid week, with uncertainty surrounding your identity and direction coming clear around Friday, you’ll feel ready for some romance and recreation. Since you have to pay to play, you’ll likely enjoy the benefits of Venus transiting the area of income, as you can stimulate revenue from creative enterprises or turn up some valuable purchases at this time. No dice Friday, at which time you’ll be required to curtail unnecessary expenses, you are far better off on focusing your energy on generating income instead. A domestic issue comes to a head early in the week. You’ll be wise to wait on any critical decisions until the beginning of February, at least.

PISCES: Love and pleasure fill the agenda over the coming weeks and treating yourself to something luxurious (as well as engaging the affection of someone dear) will be highly pleasurable. Not so fast on Friday, as a contentious matter in regards to your profession put the kibosh on your plans. Saturday is better for romantic diversions, and after a busy week addressing financial matters, (most likely with an advisor behind the scenes) you’ll be ready for some fun. Domestic matters command your attention mid week. Home will be a sanctuary for rest and regeneration, leaving you ready to take the world by storm on Friday. Go for it!

Stargazer Weekly Horoscopes January 18 – 24, 2015

STARGAZER HOROSCOPE WEEK OF JANUARY 18th – 24th

It’s a dense week in astro-land, with a lot of compelling and decisive energy coming at us, tempered with the ambivalence of a Mercury retrograde phase beginning Wednesday and lasting through February 11th. The real pivot point comes via Pluto at 13 Capricorn squaring the Nodal Axis (South Node – Aries / North Node – Libra) exact on Wednesday the 21st. This begins building momentum at the beginning of the week, with the really acute pressure coming off by next Monday (January 26th) only for Uranus to enter the picture moving closer to conjunction with the South Node, exact on February 1st. We’ve been dealing with the push and pull of the Uranus – Pluto square for years, of course, with the final exact square due in March. With the Nodes becoming involved at this crucial point, the issues become very internalized and personal. The struggle for dynamic change (Uranus) and transformation (Pluto) is augmented by the evolutionary goal of North Node in Libra, described in a few keynotes from Celeste Teal (from the phenomenal book “Lunar Nodes – Discover Your Soul’s Karmic Mission) including: “Sharing and cooperation… learn(ing) to be sensitive to the needs of others… learn that you are neither totally self sufficient nor totally dependent as you are establishing a balance between the two…” Balance and diplomacy are key here, and as this applies to all reciprocal relationships, and to the extent we are finding these qualities present (or not) will represent the root and the degree to which we may feel conflicted at this time. If we realize we are not getting back what we are putting in, or paradoxically perceive we are trapped in a situation in which we cannot or do not wish to offer ourselves completely, there can be a crisis at this time and a hard push for realignment towards this evolutionary goal post. Look to the future you seek, visualize it, define it, feel it and internalize it. Now that you know where it is, open yourself to trust the universal flow of your unconscious to reveal the pathway. (All the Pisces energy is good for this, BTW, more on that in a sec.) Pluto from Capricorn is allowing for a complete restructuring and massive house cleaning, as well as the drive and power to transform effectively towards those markers of what must be surrendered in order to move towards a brighter tomorrow.

No sudden moves of course, (though we may not have an option!) with Mercury retrograde in Aquarius, which is coincidentally book ended by an Aquarius New Moon (0′ 09″ Aquarius) on the 20th, followed by a second Aquarius New Moon (29′ 60″) on February 18th, a few days after the end of the retrograde cycle. Look to the dates when Mercury “communicates” with Uranus (January 14th, March 1st) and the Nodal Axis (January 16th, February 27th) for the most revealing insights. Personally, my money is on the last few days of February and first week of March for all the pieces of the puzzle to fall into place and a resolution to come into view. The second connection of Mercury to the Nodal Axis will likely be the eureka moment where everything makes sense again or we figure out the “how” to get there part of the equation. Just in time as we reach the incredible Jupiter – Uranus trine in the early days of March, portending a massive development tied to objectives initiated last October. Real good stuff coming, and I’d encourage adopting an experimental approach over the coming weeks as opposed to a wait and see. We simply don’t have the luxury of that right now – particularly with Uranus on the South Node at the beginning of February revealing so many shadow dynamics. It’s going to be a far more productive use of this energy to engage with curiosity towards what is revealed, rather than to try to stifle the emotions that arise. Treat these as separate from yourself, especially in regard to behaviors. “This is what I do, not who I am” is one way we can reflect on what emerges, and if you don’t like what you are doing, stop!

In other news, Mars – Neptune conjunct in Pisces opposite Black Moon Lillith in Virgo on Monday. Venus will be opposite Jupiter at the same time, all together formulating a molotov cocktail opening the Pandora’s Box of sexuality and fantasy hitting us right in the base of libido instincts and Venus – Jupiter encouraging a leap of faith in a relationship. It’s a fascinating line up, and with Mars – Neptune renewing their cycle in Pisces (for only the second time since the 1850’s) a really revealing creative or spiritual awareness can come about. Both planets are essentially in a square to Saturn, (3 degree orb) at the time of the conjunction, so there is an intrinsic feeling that there are limits to how far as we can take our inspiration, a theme that persists throughout the year. The Moon from Pisces on Thursday will highlight these challenges, and bring an emotional dimension to both the illuminating creative and metaphysical potentials available in this phase, but also a reminder that we live in and must return to meatspace, that there is critical work to be done. The New Moon Tuesday and the Sun from Aquarius on Friday, meanwhile, are far more cooperative to assisting the manifestation of our long range goals and will offer innovative and exciting opportunities towards these aims. Mercury will additionally spend close to three weeks in a pretty tight sextile to Saturn in February during it’s station. (The dates of February 6th – 20th experience the strongest vibration.) It would seem objectives coming into focus now (The New Moon will be very specifically revealing of these,) are augmented fortuitously by the retrograde cycle, with a good deal of work and communication taking place over the coming month. If you feel like you are inhabiting two very different realms this week, one connected to your soul, the other to your mind, you are. Give space and time for both dimensions equally, as they both have much to offer. Moon in Aries comes to the rescue Saturday morning, revitalizing our energy for the month and offering perspective and initiative to take action.

ARIES: The part of your life that is working right now is tied to your educational pursuits and particularly the efforts you conduct collaboratively with a group or organization. You are beginning to realize the amount of hard work involved, but take it in stride, because you are also becoming aware of the long term rewards you will see for rather inconsequential sacrifices you might be making in the present tense. The relational dynamics in your one on ones is where the challenge lies, and your own professional objectives (or those of your partner, potentially,) may be in conflict with the needs of a relationship. A very secret love affair, possibly with someone with whom you work, may seem like the antidote, but is equally pernicious. You’ll see why in May, when the truth comes to light and prevents the obtainment of enduring satisfaction.

TAURUS: You question the direction of your life this week, and specifically whether your role at work is satisfying the longer range objectives you hold dear. Friends and colleagues will see you through and provide a touchstone of inspiration for you. Check in with people periodically if you feel a sense of impending chaos or doom. You get some solid professional indications mid week that will augment your sense of commitment to your destiny. While this is likely going to be a rather convoluted path over the next month, you also stand to learn a great deal, and this will affect you in a profound spiritual way, which is good. Next weekend suggests some restorative peace and quiet is in order. Clear your social calendar and leave important meetings for the beginning of next week, when the Moon is in your sign.

GEMINI: Your sense of destiny is profoundly impacted next week, and intuition or visionary experiences may play a role in your determination of a course of action. The upcoming weeks feature a needed change in perspective, and this may occur through travel or education, but in some way a broadening of your horizons is relevant. A partnership features quite largely in this, and it might be you have an engagement with someone abroad, or through your role with a university or through teaching, learning or broadcasting. Revealing interactions over the next month will highlight an evolving commitment. Your ruling planet in retrograde resonates very personally and suggests a significant period of reappraisal of your identity. A love relationship or creative enterprise speaks volumes to this, and will be transformed mutually through the evolution of your self image.

CANCER: You fall in the cross hairs of some of the more challenging alinements this week, particularly if your Sun/Ascendant is within close degree to 13 Cancer. The future of a key partnership, your domestic situation or profession are all impacted equally, and you’ll likely be reflecting on the classic “Should I stay or should I go?” refrain in any or all of these circumstances. What is working is tied to your opportunities for education and travel, as these provide highly revealing insights that can really deeply enhance your soul. Wednesday is remarkable for such a culmination. Much Aquarius energy in the mix will see you transforming at a fundamental level in the coming weeks. Health regiments or a work assignment plays a role and you can really integrate a positive new lifestyle that enhances your wellness and productivity in this phase. The 23rd is optimum for coming to an important decision about this and taking consequential steps.

LEO: The way you feel about a committed relationship is coming into view this week, with a great deal of energy and negotiation likely through February in regard to this partnership. It’s a positive phase overall, and a commitment you have recently made to your creative self expression, in a love relationship or to a role as a parent or step – parent will be a demonstrable indicator of how deeply you care for someone. Taking care of yourself is in fact a way of taking care of another, as it allows you to be available and present to the real needs of the relationship, and not dependent on the spouse for personal satisfaction. This will be most evident Friday. Transformation is occurring in regard to daily affairs and your speech and habits. Are your words and thoughts really representing your inner world or merely fodder to substantiate interaction? Speak with conviction this week, be fearless in your expression. Your thoughts have meaning and value, trust yourself.

VIRGO: The axis of ownership, of what is mine, yours and ours, and especially conflicting values with a partner in regard to those definitions will be of paramount importance over the coming weeks. If you are with a spouse or business partner unable to carry their weight, you will likely see some shifting dynamics unfolding, particularly if you have been absorbing an unfair share of the burden. Stop idealizing this person if they are not contributing to your sense of satisfaction. Are you really in a spiritual union, or utterly deluded? Very revealing indicators on Monday and Thursday should be regarded with concern. A relationship to your creativity, pleasure or children is a part of this and plays a significant role in where you are headed. Also on the agenda this week your work and productivity, and a new era in your daily life or role on the job. You might have a rethink about this one for a while, and in some regard a domestic or residential concern will weigh on your decision. Good news Friday.

LIBRA: You may find yourself asking “Who am I?” this week, and this deeply philosophical and spiritual question resonates deeply throughout your relationship to your outer environment: one on one relationships, residence and sense of personal meaning in the universe. Mars – Neptune stimulates some perplexing dynamics as well, you desire to connect meaningfully with your work and productivity in a spiritual way and a day job or the minutia of daily life can feel quite unsatisfying at this time. You have the power right now to affect change through a creative approach, as your ability to express yourself (and derive pleasure from doing so) is the strongest it will be all year. Mercury may twist the path a bit, but this can equally indicate the resurfacing of a lost treasure, or forgotten source of happiness as indicated by the reemergence of an unresolved love relationship or reconnecting with a creative practice. Do not burden yourself with a need to equate the value of this experience with permanence. It is meant for you here and now, and that is enough.

SCORPIO: A deeply pleasurable love association may be established this week as Mars and Neptune connect in the house of pleasure and True Romance. If nothing else you’ll be thinking about what the perfect love affair would feel like. Taking the plunge may prove irresistible, especially on Thursday. You can tap into brilliant creative vibrations under these auspices as well. The self awareness you have masterfully cultivated since 2012 will make this a far more auspicious period for you than the prior cycle (initiated February 5, 2013), as you are far less gullible to flights of fancy. Domestic and residential matters seek attention in this phase, and there may be a reversal in your thinking about a housing or personal matter between now and the end of February. This transit is fortunately augmented by positive if not surprising developments at work (Uranus) and the solidification of your finances (Saturn). February 6th – 20th is a propitious time to form a strategy in regards to saving to make a residential shift reality.

SAGITTARIUS: The first part of the week relates to your home base, residence and personal life. There is a fascinating and almost magical undercurrent at work in this phase, and if you are in the process of modifying your domestic situation, a remarkable development stimulated Monday and carried out through Thursday is featured. A spiritual quality presides over this period and this may affect your physical environment, or occur very deeply within you. Equally, an internal revelation may trigger an external shift. You are contemplating in this phase the virtue or value of what you can do on your own vs. what you can accomplish with a group or organization. Finances play a role in the equation, and will weigh heavily in the choice you make. Social life takes on exciting new dimensions over the coming weeks and very stimulating exchanges will bring a brisk pace to the day to day.

CAPRICORN: You’ll feel at a personal crossroads this week Cap., with your personal and public realms vying for attention and a significant choice regarding your evolution and destiny unfolding. You hold a great deal of personal power at this time and can effectively change the course of your life right now as you see fit. With power comes responsibility, though, and you must weigh the effects of your choices on those close to you – especially family members. Financials are also in focus, and the coming weeks offer several opportunities, though things may feel a bit squirrly or up in the air with Mercury retrograde from the 21st. You can effectively hone in on a goal this Friday, with the dates of February 6th – 20th ripe with very positive potential to add substantially to your earnings and to create genuine abundance, particularly in relation to your professional aspirations. Remain inquisitive and innovative, intuition is also a strong guide in this phase.

AQUARIUS: You are well suited to trust your intuition and inspiration regarding financial matters in this phase, but equally will do well to wait to make any major commitments until after February 18th, when clarity returns to your sense of personal direction. Very revealing clues are in store now, though even more positive auspices are due when Venus joins the Pisces party after the 28th. A personal reappraisal is triggered this week connected to your identity and self image, and this is a very fruitful period in which to find ways in which to express newly evolving aspects of your persona through dress, manner and style. Commitments to daily communication and your local community against those callings to travel, study, work or publish at a distance will prove somewhat contentious, and there can be a crisis over whether you should stay or go. Your best bet for personal evolution is to pursue that distant, but elusive boundary. Only your deepest self knows the right answer for you personally.
PISCES: Intuition is heightened this week to the nth degree, Pisces. A great deal is going on within you as well as behind the scenes of your subjective reality. Take all matters with great ease and don’t be afraid to acknowledge your intense sensitivity in this phase. Treasures are buried within and you can now retrieve them by embracing your etherial nature. The bedrock of your external consciousness is connected to a desire to advance and achieve in this phase. This is fine and progress is assured with good indications coming in at the end of the week, perhaps in the form of a material reward for what you have managed to accomplish. Your immense creativity is where you will demonstrate your true power at this time, and a sacred connection to divine inspiration early this week (then amplified again on Thursday,) will reveal the depths of your ability in magical ways.

Weekly Horoscopes for January 11 – 17, 2015

STARGAZER WEEKLY HOROSCOPE JANUARY 11 – 17, 2015

Some significant shifts in perspective are due this week as Aquarius and Pisces are becoming emphasized. As the transit of Mars through Pisces begins on Monday, the energy level will become subdued if not withdrawn. Creative inspiration will yield real treasures, particularly as Mars approaches Neptune in conjunction on the 19th. Energy will be placed into the fantasy realm, and daydreaming likely becomes a pastime. A quarter Moon on Tuesday (22′ 52″ Libra) contacts Jupiter in Leo, and we’ll feel positive about taking constructive action to complete the objectives of the last three weeks, and definitely a lot better about our prospects than we did a week ago, around the time of the cantankerous Full Moon in Cancer on the 4th. Exciting and innovative developments in communication and within love relationships culminate mid week as Venus and Mercury connect to Uranus, stimulating a desire to try something new and encouraging spontaneous decisions and activities. A much needed change of a pace towards the lighthearted can be anticipated, and good news comes in. Venus and Mercury also harmonize the Nodal Axis this week, tapping into the evolutionary goals of the North Node in Libra by trine, while reconciling us to past in a positive way through a sextile to South Node in Aries. We benefit at this time from both new associations (North Node) while also enjoying positive and stimulating undercurrents with those connected to our past (South Node).

Caution presides towards the end of the week, when Mars and Saturn square off – indicating our ability to take action will be burdened by obligations or feelings of restriction. This is a period of defining long range goals and seeking the methods by which we’ll reach them. Much easier avenues of expression open up at the end of February, for the time being we’ll be looking at ways to modify the approach. The Moon connects to Saturn early Friday morning, for the first time since Saturn moved into Sagittarius, giving us an emotional awareness and insight into the objectives being stimulated by this transit. By Saturday, the vibe improves enormously, as the Moon joins in a Grand Fire trine with Uranus and Leo, emphasizing enthusiasm and excitement, the perfect day for getting out and into the company of fun people while emphasizing unique self expression.

ARIES: A partnership is highlighted at the beginning of the week. You seek out the company of others, and desire a loved one who can share your hopes and dreams for the future. Your energy may be withdrawn over the coming weeks, or a great deal of action might be taking place behind the scenes. The subconscious is brimming with ideas and inspiration. It’s ok to pull back from some of the demands of a busy schedule, though events Thursday will thrust you into action ready or not. Self expression is highlighted over next weekend and you’ll feel at ease, particularly with friends or through expressive group activities.

TAURUS: Friends and especially creative people will be a major source of inspiration for you over the coming weeks. Professional developments are stimulated, and encouraging prospects come your way in this phase. Networking, communication and a new job assignment will offer very positive opportunities for you. Bear in mind the upcoming Mercury retrograde phase will likely see some reconsideration within professional matters, and that the path to your destiny is going to be a bit convoluted. Take an offer on Tuesday and see where it goes. The later part of the week is appropriate for privacy and reflection. You are becoming aware of dynamic inner transformation and benefit from meditation.

GEMINI: A pleasure trip may be the focus of the early part of the week, and you stand to make good headway on educational goals if you try something new or unexpected. A love relationship can come your way, or is enhanced by expanding your boundaries. Travel and intellectual exchange are highly favored. Professional matters are coming into focus and will drive your activities over the coming weeks. Inspirational activities or creativity will play a large role in your objectives in this phase. Events towards the end of the week can create contentious vibrations between yourself and a partner. You may be considering weather you are getting as much as you give. Are you?

CANCER: Life feels as though it is coming back into balance, as a sense of ease and certainty replaces the confusion of the prior weeks. Unexpected but highly exciting professional developments may be in store, someone behind the scenes helps you get your foot in the door and one step closer to a prestigious position. All will come into focus at the end of February. Between now and then, financial arrangements seem to require attending to. A matter related to your health and productivity also presents a challenge towards the end of the week. You might have to modify your daily activities, diet or otherwise. The details are revealed on Friday.

LEO: A long winters nap is an appealing prospect for you, though you don’t want to miss the enticing romantic developments in the early part of the week, either. You make an unexpected, but brilliant connection through academia or while traveling. Someone from the past features over the coming weeks, and you may get a second chance to rekindle a romantic alliance or may have some loose ends to tie up so you can move on. Contentious vibrations at the end of the week if you take yourself too seriously, though wonderful opportunities for engagement and self expression are possible on Saturday. Don’t let your ego get in the way of a marvelous time with friends or a loved one!

VIRGO: Issues are likely to intensify around a key partnership over the coming weeks, and you’ll do your best not to gloss over an issue or delude yourself as to the real content of a relationship right now. Health and wellness being your forte, you’ll love what transpires around Tuesday and Wednesday. A significant (and positive) financial development tied to your prolific productivity seems to be in the works. A domestic matter comes to a head towards the end of the week. You are beginning to realize the gravity of a matter connected to your living situation and have to come to terms with what you have agreed to. You’ll have a better opportunity to modify arrangements for the better at the end of next month. Allow concerns that arise now to guide your decision making.

LIBRA: Really enticing developments in a (new?) love relationship come out of the blue this week. After weeks of domestic concerns weighing heavily, fun and lighthearted vibrations prevail. Engaging in revelry can lead to an exciting chance encounter. Someone from the past may also come back into frame, clues on Friday will be very revealing of what is in store between now and mid – February. You may wish to take another chance on this relationship, or have unsettled business with this person to attend to. Work will be demanding of your time and energy over the coming weeks, though a creative project can be a very stimulating outlet of your energy. You may find yourself taking things a bit seriously in the later part of the week. A lighter touch on Saturday leads to fun social excursions.
