Week of January 18th – 24th, 2010
The Air Signs
Gemini, Libra, Aquarius
Jupiter has moved into Pisces, which is good news for money matters. If you’re prepared to work hard, you’ll be more successful and be assured of becoming much better off. Venus and the Sun move into Aquarius early in the week, which brings a warm and sunny energy to your life, Air Signs. Your natural magnetism will increase. Saturn has turned retrograde, so you may find that a trip abroad is delayed or put off completely until another time. Also, you may find yourself in a temporary lull—a bit like being in the twilight zone. You may have a lot of ideas and projects on the go, but run into obstacles that prevent you from making progress. It’s best to be patient and not force the pace. Venus conjuncts the Sun, in Aquarius, early in the week as well. This brings a positive energy and helps you connect more easily with your feelings.
Your Love Week—Air Signs:
For Air Sign natives, this week is all about getting in touch with the more esoteric aspects of life. Mercury, the planet of communication, is currently moving foreward, and is joined by Pluto, which brings transformation of all kinds. This is a very powerful combination of energies that may result in psychic flashes, vivid dreams, or instructions from your guardian angels. Pay attention to even the smallest piece of information you receive, because it may be trying to tell you something, especially as it pertains to your love life. You need to be friends with your partner before you get closer, so make sure that element is intact before taking your relationship a step further. You will know when it’s right because you’ll want to hang out even if you aren’t being intimate. You’ll also know, on the deepest level, that you can be yourself no matter what. Love blooms when you least expect it, without drama of any kind for a change. You’ll be surprised at how pleasant is this, and how easy. It’s been too long since you thought about settling down, and this week may be a good moment to look into your deeper feelings on the matter. Venus needs to feel as if love can last a good long time into the future, if not forever. But with Mercury conjunct Pluto in Capricorn this week, you may find that your living situation is changing somehow. Pluto can stir up feelings from your early life and push old buttons. Security is coming, but it may take a while to take shape over the next few years. Until then, strive for patience as transformation occurs in both of these major life areas. Romantically, you may be too distracted to make any real progress. Instead of trying to force it, work with the prevailing energies to find a new home, establish a friendlier relationship with your neighbors, or process and release any personal issues that just don’t seem to want to let go. Love comes when you discover how you feel about putting down roots.
Aries, Leo, Sagittarius
Jupiter has just moved into Pisces. This suggests good fortune in joint financial affairs and other matters, such as inheritances, your sex life, and in figuring out deep psychological truths about yourself. There is still a focus on your work and health zone. Venus and the Sun move into Aquarius at the start of the week, bringing joy and sparkle to your love life. Mercury has turned direct, which means that you can now go ahead with all those plans and projects that have been on the back burner. Saturn, your money planet, has turned retrograde, so you if you’re planning to buy big-ticket items, you may have to think in the long-term.

Family affairs will turn out well, and many blessings will come to your home. The Sun and Venus move into Aquarius, encouraging you to share your ideas with others.
Your Love Week—Fire Signs:
Sagittarius natives have a philosophical attitude about love and romance, and this week you may have the opportunity to put that into practice. Mercury has recently turned direct after a few weeks of retrograde motion and this brings a lot more movement to all areas of your life. This is a relief if you’ve been feeling stagnant. Since Mercury is forming a conjunction relationship with Pluto, the planet of change, how you make and spend money is currently undergoing some new evaluation. Are you happy with your job? Do you want and need to make more money? And what skills have you amassed for which you can now charge more? Although this could temporarily move your attention away from love relationships, you may want to make sure you’re on the same page with your partner about money matters. Since this is one of the top causes of divorce and discord, spending some time talking about how you want to save, spend, and invest in your shared future can help you grow closer over time. Fire Signs love to be reflected in love. What they put out, they often receive in return, thanks to their powerful planets’ ability to shine a light on any planet in the Zodiac. Since you Fire Signs are a natural performer, giving to others by sharing your talents, you understand what it means to use your communicative skills for a positive result. This week you may need all the patience you can muster. With Mercury and Pluto forming a conjunction about health matters, your focus may be pulled away from romantic matters for the time being. The relationship between these planets especially, and Saturn is retrograde as well, isn’t friendly and a bit terse. Your emotional life may be overloaded as your work becomes stressful, or someone else not living up to his or her promises could burden your health. Either way, love can provide a needed respite from the daily grind. Saturn is restricting exploration of new relationships, at least if they take you too far away from your own personal goals. But you are free to develop something closer to home or a union that already exists.
Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces

You have plenty of opportunity to enjoy the many gifts it will bring. Overall, this is a good time to dig deep and release those psychological barriers to success. Confront them directly and let them go. Jupiter brings many new, positive opportunities to Water Signs this year. If you work for yourself, put your imagination to use and come up with some exciting ideas for new projects. If you’ve been single for some time, you may want to start dating as you discover a newfound confidence developing.

You’ll likely be invited to tons of social gatherings, so put on your party shoes and get ready to dance the night away! Remember, it isn’t the quantity but the quality of people you meet now.

Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn
The Sun and Venus move into Aquarius, Earth Signs, brightening your financial situation.

Your Love Week—Earth Signs:
You need to watch how you express yourself this week, Earth Signs You will have to be ultra-sensitive to how your partner is feeling before you make certain suggestions. It is just that others are very edgy, and it is only too easy for them to take things the wrong way, or perhaps make a meal out of a plate of air. It may not have crossed your mind that you can blend your favorite activities and your love life, but this week it’s possible. With Mercury having recently turned direct, people see you as a communicator and mediator. The way you’re perceived is changing, and you’re primed and ready to accept all the praise the Universe has to send. Since Mercury is joining Pluto there, you’re thinking about how to transform the way you project yourself to the world. Are you sick of being prim and proper? Do you long to let down your hair, or perhaps the reverse? Anything is possible as you become the person you want to be. The only challenge lies in Saturn squaring these planets. Your career could require you to be one thing while your personal life demands another. You’re caught in the middle trying to establish peace between these seemingly opposite forces. Don’t get too caught up in the timing of events. It will all occur when it’s right. Meanwhile, sharing activities that don’t remind you of your work or career paves the way to greater intimacy.
