Astrology forecast for Jan. 16-29



    By Cortney Litwin/Staff Writer

    Love is transformed and truths are revealed when Venus dances with the planet of rebirth, Pluto, on the 25th and upstanding Saturn around the 28th. Pluto will either deepen your relationship or you’ll realize your partner belongs with anyone but you.

    And commitment phobics better watch out-Saturn wants to stabilize relationships and you may find yourself bound to another by a tightly tied love-knot around your heart. But if the tie doesn’t expand to let in personal growth and self-expression, it will eventually disintegrate.

    As for lunar equations, the Full Moon on the 18th emphasizes security in the home and smart career moves.

    If you know your rising sign from your time of birth, read that also.

    Aries (March 21-April 19)

    Your Mars ruler moves from ..cautious Scorpio into optimistic, free wheeling Sagittarius on the 16th, giving you an urge to take risks in expanding your enterprises. The Full Moon brings family relationships to the forefront.

    Taurus (April 20-May 20)

    Your Venus ruler conjoined with intense Pluto increases your natural sensuality and may reveal a long-held secret about a relationship. Just watch out for power struggles over money. The Full Moon highlights communications.

    Gemini (May 21-June 21)

    Partnership power struggles may occur during the Venus-Pluto-Saturn entanglement, or perhaps deeper feelings will be revealed once your emotional walls come tumbling down. Finances are on the rise during the Full Moon.

    Cancer (June 22-July 22)

    Moon children may feel emotionally charged-or unhinged-during this Full Moon. Let the energy carry you to new heights of creativity. The Venus partnership with Pluto and Saturn may destabilize your energy, so take it easy from Jan. 25 to 29.

    Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

    Venus combined with Pluto in the romance area of your chart is sure to make for excellent drama in relationships. Just don’t let the bossy part of your nature-and pride-get the better of you. Get healthy during The Full Moon.

    Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

    It’s love and war in your homelife during the Venus-Pluto-Saturn battle. Try to stay objective and flexible. The Full Moon urges you to turn to your friends-or a lover-for some tea and sympathy.

    Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

    Intrigue is revealed through a communication when Pluto ensnares your Venus ruler. You may feel a bit restricted in a personal situation because of the Saturn element. In the career arena, the Full Moon urges a shift in direction.

    Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

    Your passionate Pluto ruler dancing with Venus deepens a relationship-or at least clarifies your desire for a soulmate. Saturn urges you to be patient and think “commitment.” You’ll yearn for foreign lands during the Full Moon.

    Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

    The passion play of love is in the air when Venus and Pluto ignite in your sign. Saturn sets some limits, however, so be patient. The Full Moon highlights emotional intimacy and keeping close track of your finances.

    Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

    Relationship issues surface when your Saturn ruler clashes with romantic Venus-have you set limits on giving/receiving love? Break free from fear. The Full Moon also emphasizes the give and take of a partnership.

    Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

    The Venus/Pluto combo urges you to deepen your involvement in group activities, especially those that reflect your spirituality. A friend presents you with a valuable insight. The Full Moon highlights service-related activities.

    Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

    Romance is flying high during the Full Moon, but a family situation may temporarily interfere because of Saturn’s restrictive influence. The Venus-Pluto duo energizes your career if you use your personal power constructively.
