Week of January 13 ~ 20, 2003
First ~ The Astrological Weather Affecting Us All:
*Venus oppose N. Node 1/13~15 at 8~11 Sag/Gem/Aq. Okay, continued group & family issues, but more inclined now to compromise and work things out. People make an effort to socialize, and are rewarded when they do. Someone from your past resurfaces?
*Venus sextile Neptune 1/16~18 at 10 Sag/Aq. Oh, there’s that big fat moon up in the sky and, if you’re up early, there’s Venus so bright in the east. Man! Sheer Beauty! And so it is that you should take every chance to enjoy beauty wherever & whenever you find it. Yep. Put it on your list of things to do. It’s so easy to miss this stuff. You need to take notice so you don’t become a drone, pill, whiner or grouch.
*Mars enters Sagittarius 1/16 until 3/4. Say so long to the intensity of Scorpio. Say hello to the fiery passion of Sag. Wanderlust comes up, as does a zest for “truth”, and a willingness to fight for one’s beliefs. Can you say religious extremist? Better to go out and enjoy the great gift of nature and the outdoors than to bother trying to impose your truths on others. Defend your beliefs, if need be. But take time to explore beliefs that you feel are foreign to you. You might learn something!
*Full Moon 1/18 5:48 am at 28 Cancer/Cap. Conflicting demands between your home life and your business/social life. Whether it’s you or another who experiences a high need for emotional attachment, there’re differences in priorities. Finding a physical activity to share may help reduce angst and improve your disposition.
And Now, For your Sign this Week…
Capricorn (12/21~1/20): You must deal with the world as it is, not how you would like it to be. This usually requires that you make some adjustments in your attitudes and beliefs. You may struggle to be yourself and that struggle may express itself as illness. Take care of your “self”.
Aquarius (1/20~2/18): Your quest for freedom occasionally leaves you feeling lonely. Even if you are in relationship, you may feel a distance now. Take this time to meditate or otherwise get to know your deeper self. Jettison beliefs you no longer need.
Pisces (2/18~3/20): Tune in now to your hopes and wishes for the future. What would you really like to materialize in your life? Plant the seeds now, then work to help your dreams grow. Midweek: mental agitation. Late week: romance, art appreciation, or loving spiritual connection.
Aries (3/20~4/20): Mars in Sag! Take a road trip! Apply your energy to learning. Pay attention to any issue that feels “foreign” to you. That is opportunity to learn something new. Outside activities can release tension and bring satisfaction. Cranky midweek. Stop! Look! Listen!
Taurus (4/20~5/21): Use your sensitivity to ease stress with others early week. Late week is a great time to enjoy beauty in all its forms. But don’t get lost in fantasy! The intensity factor goes up for you now. While you enjoy peace, things need to move to grow.
Gemini (5/21~6/21): Be careful of for what you ask; you may get it! Relationships (business and personal) off all sorts come to the fore. Yet there is often a sense of compromising yourself for the sake of the relationship. Remember that what you see in “them” is a reflection of you! Own it!
Cancer (6/21~7/22): Torn between spending quiet time alone and doing your work? And then your “other” wants your time as well. So much to take care of. Let your health be your guide. If your body says slow down, do so. Otherwise, get cracking on your to-do list.
Leo (7/22~8/23): Issues of home and family pass, opening up time for romance, kids, speculation, and performances. Ah, but still there is work to be done, and it’s going none too smoothly. Communications with bosses, employees and coworkers go kerflooey. This too shall pass.
Virgo (8/23~9/23): The week starts out OK, but midweek comes collision between the big picture and the details. Late week cranks up the frustration factor to irritate you no end. By the weekend, you’re feeling vulnerable to any criticism, especially from within self. Choose to see the positive.
Libra (9/23~10/23): Your social swirl goes into high gear. So many people to see! Yes, the demands of learning keep you grounded, which is to the good. Late week brings a sweet desire for love, and beauty. Creative types take note!
Scorpio (10/23~11/22): OK. Monday is irksome. And the midweek is argumentative. But with Mars in Sag, time to pay attention to money matters. Though you’d like to spend freely, you must deal with the financial realities. Notice your true inner strengths.
Sagittarius (11/22~12/21): Shazam! Mars in your sign says “Let’s Go!” Outdoor activities of any kind are good for whatever ails you. They also offer a sense of peace and connection to spirit. Now is the time to assert your individuality as to who you really are.
