Week of Jan. 28-Feb. 3, 2015
This Week: This week may start out a bit emotional or melancholy. However, by week’s end, everything begins to shift in the right direction. We are steadfast, neck-deep in Mercury retrograde, which can be a positive element as well as a negative one. Regrouping, revamping and regenerating energy is key this week. Odd and old childhood memories may arrive out of the blue and create a cause-for-pause emotional aspect. Revisit these with an open heart. This time, you will get it right, and you will understand the meaning of it all. Embrace the collective consciousness, and align with those who understand your true purpose in life. Enjoy.
Aries (March 21 to April 19) — Fabulous opportunities for employment or financial gain arrive during this time. Pay attention to the universe, as it provides an answer to a prayer. Try not to concern yourself with the whereabouts of others. You have your own responsibilities to deal with, so cluttering your head with everyone else’s business will not help you. Pay close attention to children and pets. Unusual behavior could arise out of the blue with an unexpected outcome. Protect those who cannot protect themselves.
Taurus (April 20 to May 20) — You may feel as though you want to throw the towel in with a family member or close friend regarding their recent behavior. Don’t take this personally; this isn’t your responsibility. Financial aspects appear to be on the upswing. Set some money aside for a rainy day. Regardless of how screwy your schedule may appear this week, allow time to hook up with one of your zany friends for a clear-cut perspective on life. Once you hook up with those of like mind, you’re able to feel “less complicated.” A little bit of humor goes a long way this week.
Gemini (May 21 to June 20) — You have no idea how much a family member or friend appreciates the love and kindness you have extended to them over the past few months. Their gratitude will be expressed in ways you can never imagine. Now, it’s your turn to shine! Your work environment is going to bless you with a “special project” that will make up for the past few months of “ditch digging” you have endured being a team player. Enjoy!
Cancer (June 21 to July 22) — Your contribution to a friend or family member’s well-being will be evident during this time. You are looking into expanding your current financial endeavors, and out of the blue, you discover you have a hidden talent, and there is a market for your exclusive trademark. Word travels fast. You will be in demand before you know it, doing something you love for the financial balance you require.
Leo (July 23 to Aug. 22) — You are in the driver’s seat on so many different levels, you may not know which way to turn early on this week when unexpected information arrives that blows your mind! Your concern for a loved one may have you in a bit of a quandary early on this week. However, an unexpected solution arrives at the 11th hour. Upgrades with your financial elements are on the horizon. Try not to look a gift horse in the mouth. This is a blessing in disguise.
Virgo (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) — This re-occurring family problem needs to be addressed with diplomacy and respect for “all parties” concerned. Walking wide of it only creates more difficulty and heartache down the road. If you’re saying to yourself this is not your responsibility, expect something ugly to erupt shortly over all of this. You may find yourself on the outside looking in as a result of your continued denial of this situation. Midweek, a frustrating business aspect finally smooths out in your favor. Now, it’s time to move forward to bigger and better things.
Libra (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) — It’s best to understand when you should intervene and when you shouldn’t. Adults are adults and children are children, don’t confuse the two. Do not bring adult matters to a child’s ears as well as do not treat an adult like your child. You may find that you misinterpreted another’s viewpoint about a stressful situation entirely. Once you take the time to investigate all of the information, this will all make more sense to you in the long run. As things begin to get back to normal, you are able to align yourself with a peaceful understanding of all things. A love from your past resurfaces during this time. In April, you’ll know exactly where your heart is.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) — Weird or unusual information arrives with business and property now. If you can see it in your mind’s eye, you can create it in this physical world. Romantic aspects and friendships require work, and it’s not everyone else’s responsibility to do the work for you. If you could just put yourself in the other person’s shoes for just one day, you would have a clear-cut perspective on how to improve the quality of your “entire” family’s life, not just that one demanding crybaby who is taking up all of your time and energy in a negative way. You have no reason to fear this change. In fact, it would be best to embrace it. Expect the universe to favor you now with these elements, provided you can stop projecting your misdirected anger at innocent bystanders.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) — Travel is indicated during this time, and you may find yourself mixing business with pleasure. Saturn has entered your sign, and you are ready to work hard and play hard. Family has played an emotional role with your well-being for the past two years. Like Dorothy Gale in the Wizard of Oz elegantly said from the heart: “Some of it was beautiful, and some of it was not very nice.” Well, it’s time to hang on to the beautiful pieces as you discard the dark parts. You have no power over the landslide that a loved one has decided to embark on. It’s time to love yourself, care for yourself and make you the No. 1 priority.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) — Powerful financial aspects align for you. Take advantage of this timely aspect, and clear up any additional debt you may have incurred. This will be a theme for you in the months to come, allowing you to set some cash aside for a rainy day. Midweek, you will have the opportunity to clear the air with a loved one. Choose your words carefully, and you will be extremely effective in the long run. Be extremely cautious with animals at this time. If you have any doubt in your mind about the welfare of a four-legged friend, seek professional advice.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) — Collaborations with those of like mind in the creative field provide you with a tremendous amount of satisfaction. Romantic aspects are highly charged and emotional early this week. Try not to overreact to another and their unusual behavior. This may not be what it appears to be, and you do not want to accuse someone until you have a chance to talk it out. Outside influences are taking a toll on your own inner circle. Be patient and offer emotional support. This will all make perfect sense by week’s end.
Pisces (Feb. 19 to March 20) — Your contributions to another loved one’s well-being will balance your karma tenfold. I know that this isn’t your intention to be “paid back somehow from the universe” for being a tenderhearted person. Just be grateful that you have the intuition to know where you are supposed to be and how you are supposed to contribute to the greater good of humanity. Finances or additional education will be a focus. There is help from an unexpected source. Look at all of your options, and choose the path with the least resistance.
