Week of January 27 ~ February 2, 2003
First ~ The Astrological Weather Affecting Us All:
*Sun semisquare Venus 1/28~ 2/14. You’ll recall this frustrater was active during the last half of December. Decorating and beautifying projects don’t turn out as planned. Interpersonal relationships can get out of tune as well. Just be glad this winds down by Valentine’s Day!
*Sun conjunct Neptune; Venus semisquare Neptune 1/29~2/1. Visions of sugarplums! Lovely illusions to experience. But keep your feet on the ground! Creative folks: Pay attention! Here lies inspiration, as Spirit may appear in beauty.
New Moon, 2/1 5:48 am at 12 Aq. New Moons are new beginnings. Consider the points where you differ from your mate, family, friends, groups, etc. Those are your points of individuality. Being in integrity means you cherish those points as much as those where you agree with “the others”.
*Six planets meet up 2/1~4. Coming at the Aquarius New Moon, there should be plenty of action. In sum, expect strong desires for the freedom to indulge in ideals. Some will finally walk away from an impossible situation. Some will awaken to new possibilities. Ideas are stronger than feelings.
And Now, For your Sign this Week…
Aquarius (1/20~2/18): This month, you are expressing yourself, know it or not. Midweek, however, things fog up. You misunderstand others’ motivations as you are also misunderstood. Mull over any new-found truths, but commit to nothing until week’s end.
Pisces (2/18~3/20): Late week, make some quiet time for yourself. Focus on your intuition and pay attention to what you receive. It may be hard to explain to others, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t worthwhile. As always, do a complete reality check before manifesting your inspiration in the “real” world.
Aries (3/20~4/20): Early week, expend your energy in positive ways. It’s a waste to argue for the sake of argument. Stand for your beliefs, but open up to other viewpoints. Late week, you get a chance to act on your beliefs. What do your actions tell you?
Taurus (4/20~5/21): Early week, one of you wants to get close, but not the other. Fine. If you’re the one wanting connection, go create something of beauty for yourself. If you need space from him/her, take it. Absence makes the heart grow fonder.
Gemini (5/21~6/21): If something is bugging you, dig deeper! It is better to suck it up and choose to explore your deep inner self than to be flailing away on the surface with fear and loathing. Talk with a counselor if need be. Minds only function when they’re open.
Cancer (6/21~7/22): An intense experience can impact your health or your workplace. Midweek to weekend, relationships occupy your thoughts. Have a heart-to-heart. Do beware of the dreamy “too-good-to-be-true”. It is exactly that. New Moon: “Whatever gets you through the night – it’s alright”. ~John Lennon
Leo (7/22~8/23): Time to incorporate some new ideas about your health. Learn something new and put it into practice. Same thing applies to the workplace. Though you may flinch to hear a truth, you ignore it at your peril. Enjoy a romantic fantasy, but don’t expect it to always be that way.
Virgo (8/23~9/23): Mid week may bring you feelings of total inadequacy. Those are delusions. It is definitely not as bad as you think. Conversely if everything is rosy, things are not as grand as you think. Best to appreciate some art or beauty and don’t take life too seriously.
Libra (9/23~10/23): I hope you’ve taken advantage of all the social opportunities lately. Things now just don’t go as smoothly as you’d like. Avoid assuaging your angst by buying (or dating!) some fine frippery. Chances are you’ll hate it later!
Scorpio (10/23~11/22): If you find yourself catching an earful from some “authority” figure about what you should or shouldn’t be doing, you might at least listen to what is being said. While you may not like it, the “easy way out” wastes your talents and abilities.
Sagittarius (11/22~12/21): OK Sag-mo, it’s crunch time. You need a new attitude and if you’re not getting it, others will tell you so. You need to re-evaluate the situation in light of new information. Initiate the appropriate changes willingly, or have them made for (to) you.
Capricorn (12/21~1/20): Be prepared to speak your truth. Be prepared too, to hear others speak theirs. So what if it isn’t “pretty”? Life isn’t always nice, and it only gets worse by avoiding the real issues. Remember that truth is beauty, whether you or others think so or not.
