The Waterbearer: (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
There is a lot happening in your life right now. It requires major concentration just to keep it all sorted. You have concerns over a partner or a significant other. It is possible one of you is critiquing the other. There is a difficult aspect in the sky generating this dilemma. You do not have to cooperate.
For All Signs: Those who are old enough to remember the U.S. landing on the moon will recall the awe and drama of looking at the gloriously blue and white earth circle. I have since come to think that this event, culminated at the end of the '60s era of fight for egalitarianism, could be thought of as the single most identifiable marker event of the dawn of the Aquarian Age. It was our first genuine glimpse of the isolation of our home, a small circle of humanity floating in the vastness of outer space. The lunacy of war became so vividly clear to many of us then. How could we have forgotten?
Aries: Your reflexes and normal muscle control are out of sync right now, so use special caution and listen to your body. If it says "don't," then pay attention and stop immediately. This is one of those occasional times when your mood is irritable and your mouth snappy.
Taurus: Venus, your ruling planet, travels with you into the territory of friendships, community and organizational affairs. Over the next three weeks she will enhance your presence at any activity in this sphere. It is a good time to plan a party for friends or to meet new people at other gatherings.
Gemini: You may need to concentrate in order to avoid critics, whether they be internal or external. Instead of blame, use the discipline to tackle a project that requires concentration. Avoid contracts and business negotiations right now because misunderstandings may develop.
Cancer: As a "moon child," you are especially sensitive to lunar changes. Watch the calendar for a while and pay attention to your energy levels at the new and full moons. Classic astrology suggests that new growth occurs between the new and full moon. Completion of activity occurs in the two weeks following the full moon.
Leo: Beware of the tendency to worry over matters that may never happen. You are tempted to see the world through a dark lens this week, and you may think that is the true version. It's more likely that the pessimistic view is extreme. Use this energy more productively by tackling a big mental project.
Virgo: You may be dwelling on heavy or worrisome thoughts at this time. Be aware that there is an aspect in the sky that draws you toward the dark place. You do not have to go there. Focus your attention instead upon a mental project that requires concentration and intense focus.
Libra: This is a great time to focus attention on returning to good health routines. Libras are so social that it is sometimes a challenge to maintain time consuming exercise or diet regimens. Over the next three weeks it is possible you will find a buddy whose schedule matches yours and who can help you hold onto your goals.
Scorpio: This is a favorable week for love, romance and play. Relationships have opportunity for positive transformation at this time. Some of you may be decorating home or office space. You have a special interest in the arts and things beautiful this week.
Sagittarius: You continue to be restless and excitable. You want to make changes in your routine and/or home and hearth. Those who are fortunate have travel plans during this period, which can use some of that extra adrenaline you are toting.
Capricorn: Aspects suggest you may be feeling irritable and critical this week. Objects and people are just not cooperating, and you may also be worrying about finances. Some of these things are a reality, but in the greater scheme of things, it is a temporary droop.
Pisces: You have a problem that you would rather not see. However, the evidence is mounting, and you can tell it won't go away on its own. Although you may not be ready to take action now, you could put that worrying to use in researching information that might help you.
