Your Horoscope: Week of Jan. 20-26, 2010
This Week: Lucky Jupiter moves forward, creating opportunities to arrive in new sectors of our lives. This is a great way to start out the New Year. Many of you may still be dusting yourselves off from last weekend’s Mercury transition. Let the little confrontations go, and take advantage of this week’s newfound actions. There is plenty of room to grow and develop.
Aries (March 21 to April 19)—Jupiter blesses your 10th house of long-term goals and dreams. Stay awake, and take advantage of these promising new aspects. A deadlock is broken when a light-haired female arrives with important news. Take advantage of the “heads up” she provides for you with romance or career, and go for it. Once you take this step in the right direction, numerous possibilities fall into place. You’re going to be extremely busy, wearing many different hats. To sum it up for you, this week is going to be a blast!
Taurus (April 20 to May 20)—Jupiter moves into your 11th house of social networking and causes. Get involved, and expect expansion in these areas of your life. You may need to reconsider your finances. A long-standing debt needs to be cleared so you can move on. Those in a position of authority are willing to help. Expansion with business and social life arrive during this time. Be open and receptive to all unexpected offers. By week’s end, you have a plan you can stick to.
Gemini (May 21 to June 20)—Jupiter blesses your 10th house of career. Expect to be extremely busy with this activity in the months to come. A business opportunity arrives that can clear your slate of any financial worries you may have. Take the call, make the appointment, and go for it. You will present yourself in the best possible light. Dress for success, and receive this blessing with honors. A mischievous female family member may try to interfere with your personal life this week. Set a strong boundary from the get-go.
Cancer (June 21 to July 22)—Jupiter blesses your seventh house of love and big ideas! Stay open to interactions with love and friendship. A friend from your past will turn you on to a fabulous business idea. Make sure you follow up with return phone calls to set this activity in motion. The health of a female may be concerning you this week. You may need to contact family members to follow up with this issue. Don’t drop the ball now if you feel this is a concern. Go with your gut. Your intuition is running high.
Leo (July 23 to Aug. 22)—Lucky Jupiter enters your eighth house of shared resources. Financial assistance comes from unusual sources, and protects you from harm. You are arriving in a fabulous place with career shortly. I know this sector has been very difficult for Leos. Now that this has shifted, you will take to it like a duck to water.
Virgo (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22)—Jupiter’s luck opens doors for you within your relationship sector. However, you may first need to go back and repair some damage from a previous time. You finally feel as though you have caught up on all of these annoying projects that were causing you to lose sleep. Now, you can relax and enjoy your newfound energy source. It’s a good time to get out and play. Physical activity, as well as socializing, is the trick to perfect balance this week.
Libra (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22)—Jupiter protects your sixth house of daily activities, health and habits. This will make it easier for you to develop healthy habits and change your current course for the better. By the way, what are you going to do with all of the extra cash coming your way? You may be considering a big-ticket item. Go slow and check out all of your options. You may find a much better deal through another reliable source. Still, it is time to treat yourself a bit. All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21)—Jupiter activates your fifth house of self-expression and offers opportunities to upgrade your quality of life and career sectors. After a lightweight sabbatical, you are ready to take on some larger projects and complete a long, drawn-out cycle. You will have the energy to perform creative tasks with ease. Your imagination is running high and is in full form. Take notes of ideas and brainstorm with those of like mind. There is a highly-charged summer in store for you as a result of connections you’re making.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21)—Jupiter blesses your fourth house of home and family. Personal relationships have a powerful, positive impact on your heart and mind in the months to come. You’re rested and ready to get back to work now. A creative project that you have left on the back burner deserves your attention. Allow the universe to provide you with many different options from which to draw. The timing is fantastic to launch new ideas. When summer arrives, this is working in your favor full force.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19)—Your third house of communication receives the blessings of Jupiter’s influence. Your words provide a powerful, positive impact on those around you. Romance may require a little more energy and effort on your part. Although your plate has been very full, you may have been denying yourself the affection and comfort you require. Once you begin to knock down your own emotional walls, you will wonder why you built them to begin with. Open your heart and your mind to the endless possibilities that are becoming available.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18)—Whoa!!! You have Jupiter moving into your second house of finance for the months to come. Lucky you! Need I say more? Long-distance phone calls provide some unusual news. You will be investigating all of the information, and then deciding exactly what you are going to do about it. If connections with family need to be made, take the time this week to do this. You will be pleasantly surprised by the outcome.
Pisces (Feb. 19 to March 20)—Jupiter encourages you to take risks and step it up now. Take a leap of faith! Jupiter will never let you down if you make the required changes that need to be made! Your intuition is dead-on, so try not to second-guess what your heart is trying to tell you. The universe will provide you with everything you need to get to the bottom of this dilemma. Choose your words carefully, then address this aspect with grace and diplomacy. You have a support system like you’ve never seen before, filled with love and respect.
