If you had to characterize Venus in Aquarius as only one kind of love, it would be philia: the love of friends and equals. Venus in Aquarius is a student council president, a philanthropist, the selfless help of a best friend, a moving speech that motivates the change. Venus changes to Pisces and the prevalent love is one of romance.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). Charging heedlessly ahead will cause unpredictable effects both now and later. The fates will favor those who hang back, cautious, taking stock of what there is to gain and lose both in the moment and over time.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). People will interact like life forms in a forest, creating unique ecosystems. It may look, from the aerial view, like it's about the tall trees, but the shrubs, grubs, birds, bugs and fungi are equally important.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Deeply rooted attitudes can be passed down through psychological inheritance on hidden, unconscious levels. We may be unaware of how a myth affects us, but once the script is illuminated, attitudes can easily shift.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). Good relationships are made possible by people showing up for one another. Physical presence is a basic requirement. You deserve the best support. You'll model it, attract it and accept it when it comes.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). At any age, it's essential to have people to look up to. Models of self-reliance, discipline and responsibility are around, though you're still the one most able to provide these qualities on the level that makes your life good.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). It can be frustrating to be overtaken by people of equal or lower ability than you, but don't get too discouraged. Luck takes turns and it will soon be yours. Go ahead and work on your swagger. Soon things will fall into place.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You've been granted extra wisdom to nurture and care for yourself and others, to trust in life's essential kindness and to know instinctively when to push ahead and when to wait for the obstacle to roll along and out of your way.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You've had your share of idealized fantasies of love. It doesn't always work out, but you'd still rather believe that relationships can be magical than err on the side of practicality and experience all work and no fire.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You're becoming aware of how much someone means to you. Understand their behavior has made you grow fonder. You're also getting a sense of their inner, unexpressed life. This is the most captivating part.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Though you may stand with various groups and for various ideals, your true allegiance is to something on the inside of you -- a transcendent vision of what could be. For good luck, pay private homage to it today.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You read the tiny, unconscious signals others give about what they are thinking and feeling, and this helps you accurately predict their next move, making it easier for you to decide on your own.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You cannot bear to think of anyone as a rudderless boat tossed along the difficult sea of life -- least of all yourself! So, you keep working to give yourself the rudder, sails and oars you need to work with whatever weather may come.
TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (Jan. 26). You'll explore your history and reframe the past to empower yourself toward a major accomplishment. Impactful experiences along the way give you the goods to be an excellent and well-respected teacher. More highlights: easy money well invested, a party to remember and unique and unifying family gatherings. Aries and Cancer adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 10, 6, 4, 38 and 21.
