Message for the Venus Square of Jupiter
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Kindred spirits have a way of getting on one another's nerves today. They're interested in and good at a lot of the same things, so they have to compete for their place in the scene. Friction -- expect it and accept it.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Just because things aren't coming together easily doesn't mean they won't come together at all. Move to trying the next possible solution. The less drama involved in the transition the more energy you'll have to attack this again.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Action is, by definition, moving through resistance. If there's no resistance, you're not swimming; you're floating. There's nothing wrong with floating, per se; it's just that today's thing isn't a "lazy river" kind of ride.
TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (Feb. 4). A sense of belonging and fun comes with the fortifying friendships you make this year. You'll wind up in zany situations over the next 10 weeks because of a self-induced pattern-interrupt. There's money to be made in a new area of interest. You'll tinker and experiment a great deal before a big payout in November. Libra and Cancer adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 1, 9, 31, 20 and 16.
FORECAST FOR THE WEEK AHEAD: Compared with the planetary changes last week, the ones this week will be gentle on us. This week could be described as a lull, but that is in no way to be taken as an invitation to slack off. It would be a mistake to get too comfortable. The less active cosmic climate makes it the perfect time to be personally more proactive, because you don't have to be so reactive to all that's going on. Are you getting the operative theme here? Yes, it's "active" -- that is to say, get doing. Put energy behind it. Be the initiator -- not just the windmill but the wind, too. Yes, be the wind. All the rewards of life will be in the excitement of self-generated movement.
The sun, Mercury and Venus are all in Aquarius, which is for the people and of the people. Intellectual opportunities abound. It's a time to focus on developing our higher faculties through reading, discussing and seeking new friends and mentors to bounce ideas off. It is said that you are a conglomeration of the five people you spend the most time with, and it's even truer under the Libra moon in the first part of the week. We'll be spending even more time with loved ones as we work out the problems of life together.
CELEBRITY PROFILES: After a long shift working on her feet in a department store in Montgomery, Alabama, Rosa Parks boarded the bus that began her lifelong journey in civil rights activism. Her simple act of staying seated when she was asked to move is an example of how one person's will can change the world. Parks was born when the sun, Mercury and Uranus were in the humanitarian and revolutionary Aquarius.
