Week of Jan. 7th – Jan. 13th, 2013

Love takes on a somber tone as we’re challenged to grow up and face reality in relationships this week. Amorous Venus’ entry into ambitious Capricorn on Tuesday night rewards people who are committed to learning from the past and intent on setting clear goals for the future. Earning loyalty and respect will be the result of honesty and hard work. Venus has such a reputation for romance, it’s easy to forget that this planet isn’t always about love. Right now, Venus wants to remind us of something different!

January 7th looks frustrating when stick-in-the-mud Saturn puts up roadblocks against Mars, creating setbacks and delays. Venus’ shift away from romance begins on January 9th, when it says goodbye to party-loving Sagittarius and hunkers down in serious and ambitious Capricorn. Any romantic focus you had up to this point will switch to wining, dining, and boosting your social status. Given Capricorn’s tendency to remain emotionally reserved, you’ll just have to deal with being steady, cool and sophisticated! Happily, the stars bring a pleasant shift to your mood. Yes, cool sophistication will rule, while climbing the social ladder will be of utmost importance.

On January 10th, Venus merges happily with Neptune to spark your hopes and dreams; however, most of them won’t be grounded enough to come true. Still, this is a pleasant transit, full of haziness and maybe even a few whispered sweet-nothings thrown in as well.

Then, on January 11th, the New Moon, also in Capricorn, steps into the spotlight. If you haven’t yet made your New Year’s resolutions, it’s because you’ve been waiting for a practical, take-action day such as this. And if you do have a list of goals, you might want to check it twice. Symbolized by the fearless mountain goat, Capricorn provides you with the skills and courage to scale new heights, but only if you put your mind to it. This New Moon is ideal for reassessing and perfecting your plans, so use the energy wisely.

When Venus squares Uranus on January 13th, you can bet that lots of flirting and fun will follow! Just don’t expect anything to last, given Uranus’ urge for independence. As Venus comes back into focus, albeit in a difficult square with unpredictable Uranus, this can throw a wrench into the works of anything too loving and dreamy. Your relationship may feel a bit unstable as a result, so be sure to tread cautiously, as the breaking away or freedom you seek now may be something you’ll regret in two days.

The Air Signs
Gemini, Libra, Aquarius

The first full week in January you need to pay attention to your health. Make this the year when your efforts bring rewards in terms of energy level and vitality. You could be restless and finding it hard to focus. It helps to have a plan. You also need exciting activities to punctuate your days. Spirituality and the search for inner peace could be a current interest. Pluto’s long-term influence is transforming, but you may also be interested in meditation, yoga, or any other spiritual discipline. Too much boredom drives you to distraction. You might become more introspective, with an opportunity to explore your inner world. Your love of chat could turn you into a wise therapist, someone friends come to for help. You may want to splurge on a new project or plan only to find you’re restricted by funds. Shared resources and joint finances could be on your mind. This is a good time to restructure debt or talk with a financial adviser to find ways to make your money work harder. You’ll resolve this easily if you’re resourceful. You seem to be putting pressure on yourself to achieve big things in your career. Romance and creative endeavors are hot for you now, Air Signs.

Your Love Week—Air Signs: This looks like a week of serious decisions in relationships.

Taking time to look back this week will help you to untangle some relationship knots, freeing you up for the future. If you’re single, knowing what you want and persistently pursuing it shows off the ambitious side of your personality. This direct approach could be what it takes to make magic happen. Being choosey may seem to limit your options at first, but you have to be selective to find the right person. Your tendency to put others first is one of your most attractive traits, yet letting someone else lead your social parade is probably not the best way to go this week. Take a chance by coming on strong now that Venus is in bossy Capricorn. However, this is not a cosmic invitation to be a bully or to run roughshod over anyone’s feelings. But knowing what you want and being willing to climb over obstacles to get it is very likely to make you even more desirable now. Friday’s sobering Capricorn New Moon helps you wind up some unfinished business, which can bring up unpleasant memories from the past.
