The Center for the New Age is pleased to present your Free Weekly Horoscope for January 18 — January 24, 2015
Monday Venus in Aquarius opposite Jupiter in Leo (January 19 –January 27) brings on a significant awareness of the dynamics of attraction and wealth. During this aspect, many folks will find themselves torn between the need to focus on the self verses the need to help the less fortunate of our communities. Custody battles are hard fought under these circumstances. The process of overcoming personal loss requires a great deal of effort to attain the healing power of love. Money related tests and troubles in relationships are often a factor under this aspect. Venus opposite Jupiter increases awareness of the need for joy in relationships.
Mars, the planet of activity and action is conjunct Neptune, the planet of mysticism and spiritual bounty in the sign of Pisces (January 19 –February 21, 2015). This planetary conjunction generally brings action to a fondness for the arts and magnifies generosity, spiritual activity and enthusiasm. There is mysticism, romance and adventure in the air with this conjunction, which will also add a special and very spiritual quality to activities. Mars comes on very strong directing the forces of our actions, while Neptune evokes a deeper, more dramatic spiritual awareness. This is a time to especially be careful not to overindulge in strong beverages, rich fatty foods, drugs, chemicals, anesthetics, etc. It’s an important time to ensure one has the proper nutrients. Mars conjunct Neptune activates an openness to rise above mundane concerns with heightened awareness and newly inspired spiritual strength.
New Moon in Aquarius on Tuesday is a good time to begin new social and philanthropic endeavors, and to gain fresh knowledge by learning something new about ourselves or our every changing world. Moods created by this New Moon may be bold or daring with a flair for experimenting with life. This is the time to open up to new feelings and greater comprehension of science and technology and of these changing times, adding to our power.
On Wednesday Mercury turns retrograde in the sign of Aquarius until February 11. This aspect is likely to disrupt communications with misinformation, particularly for topics that cover science, education, human rights issues and philanthropic endeavors. Despite rational and fair minded attempts to spontaneously articulate ingenuous and profound subjects, Mercury retrograde in Aquarius will often leave us dissatisfied and tongue tied. Expect to repeat yourself more than once or twice, and to be persistent as well as patient during this time.

Free Weekly Horoscope for your Sign
Aries: In order to fully capitalize on the current possibilities, you might need to be a bit of a rebel. With a New Moon in your future zone, this is a very important week for you, one in which you really need to be thinking about how you want your life to be and how you can make your wishes come true. Mercury turning retrograde in the same region of your chart amplifies this theme, so it’s very important that you make time now to contemplate your future. In order to bring your desires into fruition, you may well have to break free from something. That something could be a situation, a person, a place or your own limiting beliefs or habits. Change is good, and that’s what you need to keep telling yourself this week.
Taurus: This week, the focus is on your direction and professional life as well as your aims and ambitions. The New Moon in this area is a wonderful omen for new beginnings in the realm of career and life direction in general, so if you want to head off in a new direction, this is a good week to take those first steps. As Mercury turns retrograde, though, there may be a sense of needing to go it alone. You will be giving serious thought to where you are headed now. Don’t worry if you’re not making as much progress as you’d like. Mercury retrograde asks you to turn within for a while to make sure that you are going in the right direction. You may simply need to make a slight alteration to your course, and then you’ll be able to surge forward.
Gemini: The New Moon on January 20 symbolizes a new dawn for you, ripe with possibilities and potential. This is a good day to turn your attention away from previous limitations and to focus instead on the horizon of your future, asking yourself what is possible and what you would love to do. This is an adventurous New Moon, so contemplate what adventure means to you. You might consider how you could live a more adventurous life. How can you be more than you are now? How can you grow and develop? Travel and higher education are two options that could appeal now, but on a smaller scale, deciding to change your routine to try something new or venture out to a place you’ve never been before could answer the call of the planets. The important thing to remember is not to limit yourself. The chances are that you desire greater freedom in some aspect right now, so find ways that can satisfy your urge for freedom and exploration.
Cancer: This week’s New Moon brings the chance for a cleansing, whatever that means to you. Therefore, it is a good time for physical detoxing, emotional cleansing, or psychological healing. It’s an ideal time for getting rid of old stuff, from clutter and possessions to old hurts and wounds. It’s also ideal for financial new beginnings, especially joint finances, loans or what you consider as wealth. In fact, this would be a good week to consider how comfortable you are with the idea of wealth and how empowered you are financially. For example, depending on others leaves you in a fragile position, but whatever your situation, you can use the energies of this New Moon to empower yourself and heal old wounds.
Leo: Few of us are completely honest and authentic in our dealings with other people. From the simple answer of “Fine, thanks” when someone asks how we are to deliberately withholding our feelings, we tend to hide behind masks of social niceties. The New Moon on January 20 falls in your relationship zone. Now only does this bode well for new beginnings in matters of the heart, it also suggests that this would be a good time to let others see you as you really are. You may find that this honesty and vulnerability wins you more friends and facilitates a deeper connection with those you’d like to be closer to.
Virgo: This week’s New Moon is great for manifesting changes in your health and your work. Therefore, if either hasn’t been great, use the fresh energies on January 20 to help generate positive changes. Given that Mercury is retrograde, it is likely that either your work or your health are calling your attention right now, so write down what improvements you’d like to see, and then attend to any niggling health issues. Get a check up, start a healthy new regime, perform a detox, eat healthier food, sign up for that yoga class, get rid of an unhealthy habit, or read up on some positive remedies and try to implement them. If you’re unhappy in your work, then give some serious thought to what you would love to do and how you can start making that a reality.
Libra: If January has felt a bit heavy thus far, then the desire to pencil in your diary for a change in fortunes is January 20th as a wonderful New Moon occurs in your zone of fun and creativity. Now is the time to really focus on what you want to do without feeling guilty, so if life feels too stressful, ask yourself, “Who is making my life stressful? Is it other people? Is it circumstances, or is it my response to what’s happening?” Imagine for a moment that you’re madly in love. How do your challenges feel now? Would you even notice them? It’s not always advisable or feasible to fall in love with people, but we can fall in love with life. Under this New Moon, ask yourself what changes need to be made to enable you to love your life, and then find some creative way to express this. You are the artist of your own life and this week it’s time to start creating.
Scorpio: This week brings the opportunity for new beginnings connected with your home or family. However, with Mercury turning retrograde on Wednesday, it’s maybe not the ideal time for moving forward or starting new things relating to your home right now. Clearing and sorting are good activities to do now, but moving house and starting a major DIY project are not so good. If you are going to be involved in the latter, then take your time. Don’t rush. Read everything properly and carefully regarding how to go about accomplishing your endeavor to contracts for buying and selling. Ideally, this will be a time of clearing out and preparing. In a sense, you’re sowing the seeds for new beginnings, and for this week at least, you have to make sure that the soil is healthy enough for those seeds to grow.
Sagittarius: The New Moon on January 20th says it’s time to participate so if you’ve been standing on the sidelines or wondering whether you should make a move, this New Moon encourages you to step forward and join in. This may mean joining forces with others so that you can create something more than you could on your own. Or it could mean doing something you’ve always wanted to do: going back to college, learning something new, or following up an idea. This New Moon is a good omen for your life in general as it will open the door to new ways of thinking. Just be mindful of taking your time since Mercury turning retrograde could cause a hitch if you rush to where angels fear to tread!
Capricorn: The New Moon on January 20 is a great opportunity to focus your positive intent on improving your financial and material world. Prepare to welcome prosperity and abundance into your world by appreciating all that you have and looking at ways in which you can make things even better. If you need to generate more income, the planets are extremely favorable for you to capitalize on any ideas that you have. In fact, much of your current potential lies in your ideas and your ability to manifest them. Therefore, it might help to be creative in your thinking and persuasive in your negotiating.
Aquarius: This week marks the beginning of a new era, but before you embark on this new path, there is a little clearing out that needs to be done first. Hopefully, you took heed of last week’s advice and began to consciously welcome transformation and change. From now to April will be a hugely important time in your life and the choices you make this week could set the scene for the life you experience in the future. Therefore, make your choices wisely. The New Moon falls in your sign on January 20, making this an important day to welcome new beginnings or to be determined to turn over a new leaf. Some aspect of your life can’t carry on as it has been, and with Mercury turning retrograde in your sign hot on the heels of this New Moon, you can be sure that you have some serious thinking to do. What you need to remember is anything that no longer feels right and that is holding you back in some way almost certainly needs to go. This is the time to create a new vision of your life, and if it involves some kind of financial sacrifice, you’re probably on the right track.
Pisces: Mars is now breaking free of Saturn’s restrictive vibes, which suggests that you too can now begin to move forward and make progress. With the New Moon in your zone of solitude and spiritual awareness, it would be advisable (especially on January 20) to focus on your inner world rather than the external. This is a great opportunity to release something from the past, bring closure to a chapter of life, or put the final piece of the puzzle into pace. It’s also great if you’re embarking on any kind of a spiritual journey. It’s a perfect time for stating a dream journal or for having a spiritual reading. There is an enormous amount of guidance available to you now that if tapped into will facilitate an important transformation.
