Venus in Capricorn is conjunct Pluto also in Capricorn. This conjunction often places affections and love right where they are needed most: the areas of life that are deeply challenging and sometimes traumatic. It also intensifies love related efforts and, at times, our affections may seem overpowering or daunting in some way. Venus represents love and beauty while Pluto represents the god of the underworld, thus, the union of beauty and strength. This is a time when the intensity or hardship of love and attraction will prove most empowering, eliciting a pursuit of passion. We need our bodies, hearts, minds and spirits to be aligned and as a result, a love relationship may reach a major turning point.
Venus in Capricorn sextile Saturn in Scorpio, provides an opportunity when aloneness gives us a sense of our own completion. We understand better our responsibility in creating the love that we wish for. This aspect often provides an opportunity to attain desired objects. Saturn’s influence emphasizes the awareness of time, limitations and restrictions. It also harnesses our dedication to responsibility and discipline. There is a passionate drive to protect loved ones and limit their exposure to whatever creates the protective one’s concern. The sextile aspect allows for greater opportunity to stand on guard favorably and be protective in a way that will be easily understood. Thursday in particular is a wonderful day to cement a romantic relationship and structure our social lives. And this is the time to take the opportunity to protect what we love with guidance and nurturing.
First Quarter Moon in Aries on January 18 influences the emotions, sub-consciousness, metabolism, and the work atmosphere. You have probably noticed that you have moods when it’s very difficult to perform routine duties, requiring patience and perseverance. Instead of that, you want something new, exciting and interesting. The emotions in this First Quarter Moon are bright and impulsive and may lead to rashness in deeds. The Moon symbolizes family, kids, women, and in the days it passes through Aries, you must be careful in the relationships with the members of the family. Excessive impulsiveness and unconsidered actions can lead to conflict situations. Surgical intervention in the area of the head and eyes is not recommended during the Moon in Aries period. Postpone the visit to your dentist or hairdresser for the future.

Aries: Sometimes change is scary, especially change for which you can’t foresee the long term result. How do we know when we journey into the unknown that everything will work out well? The biggest clue to our future well being is that it feels like the right thing to do. Maybe we feel drawn to move in a certain direction, and if it weren’t for the fear factor, we’d have no qualms at all. Sometimes the only way to live a fulfilling and creative life is to take a risk. Nothing is certain and nothing is forever, but by moving in alignment with your passion and enthusiasm, you won’t go far wrong. Trust your inner guidance this week. Your destiny is unfolding, but you won’t gain anything by trying to keep things the way they are. Embrace change and you will find yourself on the right path.
Taurus: There is a touch of the emperor’s new clothes" about your current situation, and you will need to see beyond appearances to get to the truth. You may, for example, feel uncomfortable about something that challenges your ethics. Or you may need to cut through the murky waters of emotion to see the truth of what’s really going on in either your personal or business life. Don’t be afraid to confront difficult situations and be willing to speak your truth, even if it’s uncomfortable. Be a light for others and yourself, and make time for silence so that you can hear the guidance of your soul.
Gemini: Recent events may have forced you to take a reality check and left you feeling a little despondent. Perhaps you realized that the reality failed to measure up to your ideal. It’s good to have dreams, but it’s not good to delude yourself. You now have to decide whether the dreams you held were based in reality or you were simply avoiding facing up to the truth. However, Jupiter, planet of abundance and fortune moves through your sign until June 25th, bringing to you all kinds of new people, situations and things. Jupiter in your sign will enhance love and joy and you may even find yourself stepping into a special relationship or friendship this week.
Cancer: January, it seems, is all about relationships and whether you’re looking for more love, romance or commitment, there is a very strong chance that you will find it. One relationship in particular looks set to get deeper while all your important one-to-ones can be improved by communication and really listening to the other person. Much enjoyment can be gained in the company of others now, so whether you make time to spend with your partner or arrange to see a friend, remind yourself that time spent with people you like and care about will do wonders for your mood and energy levels.
Leo: Sometimes when you want to manifest a new vision, whether it’s a new way of living or a hope or ambition that you have, you have to break out of your normal everyday routines. You have to shake things up a bit and challenge the roles that you have been cst in. Perhaps now is the time to become a bit of a rebel, to refuse to do certain things if they don’t feel right or no longer fit with your vision of who you want to be. Maybe it’s about being assertive, especially with people in authority and making sure your views are acknowledged. Or maybe you need to let go of judgment, either of yourself or others, and instead use your energy in a dynamic way to get things done. A little conflict isn’t necessarily a bad thing so long as it brings about important changes.
Virgo: With a cluster of planets in your creativity zone, the question to ask yourself this week is, what would you like to create; or what would you like to manifest? View yourself as the artist of your life, for that is what you are. Don’t be content to keep the picture small and conventional or to paint in muted colors. Make the tapestry of your life bold, bright and beautiful.
Libra: Now is the time to be really honest with yourself and acknowledge your deepest desires. What is it that you long for? What would you love to do? If the past few weeks have been a bit heavy, it’s only because there were things that needed clearing so that you could begin to move forward and see life and yourself through clearer eyes. Jupiter is urging you to break out of your comfort zone and try new experiences, perhaps to travel more or to expand your mind through learning, teaching, or writing. The keyword here is adventure, so whatever is pulling you toward joy and excitement is most probably the path that you need to follow. This is likely to be another very transformative week with the potential for moments of enlightenment. Pay attention to those moments and let them guide you out of the darkness toward the light.
Scorpio: "When you shoot an arrow of truth, dip its point in honey." This proverb reminds us of the power of words to hurt and even temporarily destroy, but what of the words you say to yourself? How hard are you on yourself? Are you self-critical? Do you put yourself down when you should be building yourself up? The current planetary activity is a test of your self-esteem, and you can discover how high yours is by the type of self-talk you engage in. Remember, whether you’re rying to manifest your dream or just going about your daily business, give yourself positive encouragement while adopting a more playful, carefree approach to life.
Sagittarius: There is still a monetary theme to your cosmic outlook this week, so make hay while the Sun shines by taking action, having faith, visualizing the desired result, and anything else you can think of that will increase your chances of manifesting what you want. It may be, though, that there are other things that you would like in your world such as a harmonious family life or the healing or resolution of some problem. Actually the chances of liberation from a problem are very high this week as Jupiter and Uranus combine to give you a "get out of jail free" card. Use it wisely, for such lucky breaks don’t come along that often and even Sagittarian’s luck can run dry eventually, so give thanks if you find yourself let off the hook in some way, shape or form, but vow to act with more wisdom next time.
Capricorn: Could you do with a little magic in your life? If your days lean too heavily toward responsibility, work and jobs to be done, then it’s time to redress the balance and bring a bit of creativity and imagination into your world. Ideally this would be your own creativity and imagination, but if you feel that your creative well has run dry, then you can always replenish it by enjoying the creations of other. You could, for example, take a trip to the theater, cinema or art gallery or read a novel that you can lose yourself in. By making time for creative exploration, you restore your connection to inspiration, which in turn will lead to the breakthrough you’ve been waiting for.
Aquarius: Any stress in your world can be alleviated by listening to your inner voice. It’s as if you have a direct line to the all knowing aspect of the universe, so anything you need to know, just ask and you shall receive. Of course, you’ll have to be quiet and calm enough to be able to receive the information or signs that you get back, so try to move through your days with poise and an alert awareness. If the past few weeks have felt a bit confusing, or if you’ve experienced emotions that took you by surprise, this is the week when you can start to regain some balance. Your relationships should smooth out and your inner state should become more harmonious.
Pisces: This is a perfect week to focus on groups and friendships so if you feel that you could benefit from working with a group, then now is a good time to join forces with other like-minded people. Your social life is also ripe for flowering and much enjoyment can be gained from spending time with friends and acquaintances. This is also a good time to consider what your ideal life would be since whenever we get a cluster of planets in the social and future zone, it gives us the opportunity to become masters of our destiny. If you would like to steer the ship of your life in a slightly different direction, or if you just need to make minor adjustments to your course, then now is the time to do it.
