Week of Jan. 7-13, 2015
This Week: Things should remain quiet for a few days, until we begin to fall into the shadow stages of Mercury retrograde, arriving Jan. 21 and remaining in that aspect until Feb. 11. Many people find they witness the mischief of Mercury retrograde way before the actual delivery date. I, myself, find that to be true for me. What does Mercury retrograde mean? Back up your computers, check and double check messages, be cautious while driving and allow plenty of time to get from point A to point B. Have a safe and drama-free week.
Aries (March 21 to April 19) — New contacts and personal relationships begin to develop now. You are in a wonderful position to acquire wealth and knowledge. However, you cannot let the past get in the way of the present. Open your mind to the possibilities of change. The picture becomes clear by week’s end.
Taurus (April 20 to May 20) — You have made a connection with a unique individual who helps you see many different angles to a specific project. Once you’re able to formulate a plan, you can move mountains with your long-term goals. You also have an opportunity to socialize with a love or friend from your past. Connect all of the dots — don’t leave anything out.
Gemini (May 21 to June 20) — Make sure your personal path is clear before you worry about taking on any more mischief or frustration. When you tend to overlook the obvious, someone will be more than willing to point it out to you. Beautify your surrounding area and make room for growth. Could you be purposely self-sabotaging your goals? If not, is another trying to do this for you? Avoid negativity like the plague.
Cancer (June 21 to July 22) — Take this week to show another how much you care. You may have been too overwhelmed to show any appreciation previously. Now is your chance to “catch up” on your personal life. Plan a weekend away, and lay the plans down for this now. It will arrive soon enough.
Leo (July 23 to Aug. 22) — You are so overwhelmed with your emotions that you can’t see the forest through the trees early on this week. Take a step back and try to figure out from where this is all stemming. Midweek provides you with answers to a long-standing problem, and by week’s end, you’re ready to celebrate with those of like mind and spirit.
Virgo (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) — You feel so relieved after getting all of these overwhelming burdens off your chest. Your ability to communicate runs smoothly, and you’re able to get everything under control once and for all. A focus on property may become a driving element to “get things done.” You will find a burst of energy arrives just in the nick of time.
Libra (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) — You feel lucky at love and work this week. Love falls under a giant category — friends, family, our four-legged connections and a significant other all align in your heart with perfect order. You have more tolerance and can see the big picture without picking it apart. Take time out to focus on your appearance. All eyes are on you.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) — A work associate may try to feed gossip or bully a fellow employee this week. You may need to step in and give them an earful. Normally, you would rather stay out of this kind of drama, but at this time, you have reached your last nerve with it all. Choose your words carefully, but let it be known you will not tolerate this kind of mean-spirited energy.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) — Romance aligns in a favorable light. You feel as though you are complete with all of the aspects that have been presented to you now. A lucky break regarding a vehicle or employment will arrive shortly. Keep your eyes and ears open for information with this aspect. The weekend holds some interesting surprises for you.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) — Those around you provide you with much love and support. You are so surprised at the outpouring of affection that you could become quite emotional. Receive this love graciously, and return it whenever you can. This contagious affection is a wonderful epidemic. Your finances begin to make sense, and you’re able to set some money aside for a rainy day. Express your creative self at this time.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) — Expansion with career will increase your finances and allow you to see the big picture in the months to come. Romance becomes a major focus midweek. You’re able to get to the bottom of a confusing element with another and clear it up for good. With that said, you can move on to bigger and better things.
Pisces (Feb. 19 to March 20) — A change in home, work or career entirely is on the forefront. This is an exciting development that promises success and satisfaction. Take a leap of faith, and go for it. You can no longer worry about the “what ifs” in life and expect to expand and grow. Once everything falls into place, you breathe a big sigh of relief.
