Love's Wounds Mend This Libra Moon
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Persistence will win out once again. But be persistent in making the effort, not in the way you make it. When it's not working one way, change your approach.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). The people in your life will help to reduce your stress, not cause more of it. Furthermore, they would say the same of you. This is how you know you belong together.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Some people don't know what they have until they've sampled a lot of the world. You're different. You don't need the comparison to know that what you have is rare. This kind of happiness could only come from something special.
TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (Jan. 7). Your determination ramps up over the next six weeks as a casual desire becomes an absolute must for your life. Your prize is coming. Keep working. A competition will bring out your best. Friendship and love get your attention in March. Your planning will allow for a spectacular summer trip. Aries and Pisces adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 28, 18, 4, 20 and 7.
FORECAST FOR THE WEEK AHEAD: The headlining act on this week's cosmic show is a tight power trio of the sun, Venus and Pluto. The actual solar conjunction of Venus then Pluto happens on Tuesday, Jan. 9, but the driving celestial music continues all through the week. In short, these planetary power players are ready to rock us. The realm of Capricorn is an authoritative influence for the softer assets of Venus. Love becomes assertive; fun takes a daring turn; work challenges and exhilarates us. Pluto handles the bigger issues of life with confidence; the sun empowers his stance. It's a week when many will feel that the big picture and small picture are fitting perfectly together, which makes momentum easier to achieve. March on.
Mercury, the minister of communication, moves into Capricorn on Thursday, Jan. 11. Though levity and humor can be effective tools for creating bonds and coping with life, there will be many situations in the next few weeks in which the humor is better left out of the equation entirely, just to avoid confusion. Address problems directly. Keep exchanges very simple and to the point. Make sure the work is done before relaxing. Appropriateness reigns king.

Steep challenge is the optimal teacher for courageous Capricorns such as Cage. In the months to come, we can expect the release of upward of six major film projects staring the prolific Cage.
