Weeklies for 1//22 - 1/27 Venus in Capricorn





Aries


Venus (Love) will remain in the sign of Capricorn and your 10th House of prestige until February 1st. On Tuesday (1/22), matters from the past crop up and can find you in a sentimental state of mind.  Control your emotions and your temper for best results. On Wednesday, it's time to get back to basics and give the best you have to give to your career and any dealings with VIPs and authority figures. Focus on building solid structures in your career and ignore the opinions of others, Aries. Thursday is an ideal time to plan special time with your family, parents and/or siblings. The signs of Cancer and Capricorn find you fascinating and want to assist you where possible, Aries. Avoid what could be perceived as  reckless behavior over the weekend since there is a possibility little issues could turn into huge misunderstandings. Friday is a day you might want to take a personal day if possible. If you cannot arrange this, make sure to get plenty of rest and exercise since emotions could run high with the Full Moon in Aries (your 5th house) approaching on Saturday. You enjoy and appreciate the love in your life and feel positive about an ongoing relationship that means everything to you. As the last week of the month approaches, think about your future goals and what you hope to achieve, personally and professionally in 2013. Look forward, not back, Aries!




Taurus


Venus (Love) is in your 9th House of Capricorn until February 1st, Taurus. Tuesday finds you in a comfort seeking frame of mind. You feel good about your life but other people might have questions for you. Watch your temper, Taurus! People only want the best for you so try to hold back if you feel pushed into a corner. Wednesday brings about some secrets and classified information to your attention. There are some mysteries in the air and some people close to you could be acting strange or odd. Thursday finds you dealing with siblings, neighbors and taking short trips. You express yourself well, but avoid coming across as a "know it all," Taurus. As the Moon grows fuller on Friday, you could become sentimental or emotional and not really know why. Friday finds you out of sorts and overly attached to your loved ones. Avoid any hint of possessiveness for ideal results. On Saturday, there is a Full Moon in your 4th House of home, motherhood and the past. Family matters top your agenda and you gain insight into a matter involving your current home. Sunday finds the public fascinated with you. Monday and Tuesday are stand out days for Taurus and you light up the room the moment you enter it. A Gemini and a Sagittarius will take note of your good looks, smoldering sensuality and powerful presence. As we enter the last days of January, Taurus feels on top of the world and satisfied with their most intimate relationships.



Gemini

Venus (Love) is in your 8th House of Capricorn until February 1st, Gemini. This week could feel isolating on some level, Gemini. You might find that issues with your family and relatives are emerging and need some adjustments or slight modifications. There could be a sense of needing to look back into your past to resolve an ongoing issue that has been nagging at you. Tuesday begins with an emphasis on your health and wellness. You could find yourself concerned with your appearance and might feel the need for perfection when it comes to the way you look. Wednesday is a day for being selfless and of service to those who need it most. You will know who these people are instinctively, Gemini. Thursday will have a strong focus on money as you think about debits and credits and who owes what and to whom. Spread cheer and try to remain positive and sunny. In other words: don't freak out about your finances! Friday finds you in a social mood and you might feel highly psychic when it comes to the wants and needs of those closest to you. Follow your intuition and nurture those who need your love, time and support the most. A Full Moon in Leo transits your 3rd House of self-expression, travel and intellect on Saturday. Saturday has a powerful/insightful message for you. You might feel as though "what comes around really goes around" as a matter in your life comes full circle. Sunday is great for anything related to playing games, solving puzzles and problem solving in general. Any time spent with close friends provides stress relief and brings comfort to you, Gemini. You're never at a loss for friends. As the final week of the month approaches, you take a sober assessment of your current love life, marriage or another serious relationship. You know deep down who is best for you!




Cancer


Venus remains in your 7th House of marriage and serious relationships until February 1st. On Tuesday, the Moon is in your 12th House of secrets and the past. You might want to chill out and relax at home as there could be some people who are taking advantage of your generosity or some who might have the purest of intentions, Cancer. Create some distance between you and those people who give off a bad vibe. Wednesday could bring on some distractions and it is important that you look at ongoing love and career matters with your head and not just with your heart. Someone might be envious of your success and not want the best for you. This is a day when it's crucial that you avoid toxic people and see things as they really are and not how you may idealize them and their promises. Thursday is your day to shine as the public admires you and others step up and say "hi". Everyone wants a piece of you on Thursday. Friday as the Moon grows full, you notice that your emotions are scattered. You could alternate between hot and cold as a Full Moon forms in your 2nd House of the people and possessions you value highly.  The Full Moon in Leo occurring on Saturday finds you coming to realistic terms with your finances.  On Sunday, the energy of Saturday is still with you as you mull over what you value and what can be tossed out. As Monday begins, your personality shines in group gatherings and you notice more positive interactions with siblings and relatives, especially female relatives. On Tuesday others will be drawn to your way with words, written and spoken.  A Virgo and a Pisces will play important and mysterious roles in your week, Cancer.




Leo

As the week begins, Leo, your friendships top your agenda as you spend time with close friends and find that friendships bring you satisfaction.  "The more the merrier" is your motto. Wednesday centers on your finances and brings a Cancer and a Capricorn into the picture. Unexpected luck via finances comes to your attention on Wednesday. You will be in a power position and those in authority will be watching you closely, Leo. Be on your best behavior as double rewards are possible. A Full Moon forms in your sign on Saturday but you could be feeling low on energy as early as Friday. Friday can find you in a hot and cold state of mind. You might feel emotional, drained or beyond stressed out. The Full Moon on Saturday in your sign is a day when you will be concerned with public appearances - yours and your partners.

A partner could be involved or you could make a confession to a partner who has been in the dark. You can resolve any long standing issues and let them go once and for all.

Mercury Retrograde

 Painting by Kelly Lynn Kimball
http://www.lynncreations.com/


Mercury represents how we Communicate and interact with others. Whenever Mercury goes Retrograde (or backwards/slows down) there is a tendency for all properties of this planet to go haywire. Mercury rules computers, cars, cell phones, travel, travel schedules and all things related to how we communicate and utilize these methods of communication.


Schedules or your best laid plans can be interrupted on short or, in fact, no notice at all. People can arrive late or not show up at all. Traffic, cars, planes and any other form of transportation especially can be a nightmare during this time. If you buy anything during this transit, chances are very high that your purchase will malfunction or need to be returned. If you order something on the Internet, it could arrive only to be the wrong size, item or color. Another example of Mercury's influence would be that your mail doesn't arrive or it's sent someplace else. Associates, employees and others will make mistakes that will need to be corrected at a later date. And if you sign any contract during this time, expect problems to arise and probably a need to go back and renegotiate. 


Cover your tracks and double check the fine print during Mercury retrograde. During this time, it is best to postpone major purchases, romantic commitments (you could change your mind and not want to be with this particular person after all) and be clear and concise in all of your communications with others. Say things twice if you have to so that you can be certain that nothing is left open to interpretation. You might notice that people from your past tend to come back into your life (or at least try to) during a Mercury retrograde. So, be on the lookout for people from your past reaching out to you during this time as well. Think of Mercury retrograde as time of rebuilding, revisiting, rethinking and rewriting. The key word is re:! You might want to rethink, review, return or reevaluate someone or something in your life. This is not an ideal time to begin new projects or relationships according to Astrology.

This year, Mercury will retrograde three times. Make sure to see which HOUSE will give you the most trouble during the Mercury retrogrades in your sign this year. The sign into which Mercury goes Retrograde also can give you an idea into additional areas that will be strongly affected.



Mercury Retrograde in 2015

(January 21st - February 11th) in Aquarius - 1/21 - 2/11 

(May 18th - June 11th) in Gemini - 5/18 - 6/11

(September 17th - October 10th) in Libra - 9/17 - 10/10



Mercury (Communications, travel and intellect) affects all of us and even though you may not be a Gemini, Libra or an Aquarius, the Mercury retrograde will affect you in some way. Unless you were fortunate enough to have been born at a time when Mercury was retrograde, expect major hassles in communications, with your electronics/computers and issues with cars, transportation in general, home appliances and travel plans.

If you are an Aquarius, Gemini or a Libra, realize the effects of this year's transits can intensify and really get to you. The best way to deal with this period is to review, reflect, revise, reorganize and finish up important projects. Rest and relax and try to take it easy as much as possible. The good news is that you can find a better way to communicate during this time!  Every sign will be affected by the retrograde - especially the signs of Gemini and Virgo as Mercury is the planet that rules these two mutable signs. Check the House that Mercury will enter to see what additional areas will be affected. You could find that the properties of the House that Mercury transits will be areas that tend to cause you more frustration, miscommunications or delays. However, remember that you can use this time to your advantage by rethinking the way you come across and communicate with others.
