Astrology forecast for Jan. 13-26



By Cortney Litwin/Staff Writer

Some serious reorganizing/backtracking from the sun opposing Saturn on the 13th is lightened considerably by a merger between expressive Mercury and luxurious Venus-a great combination for setting the groundwork for creative projects. For a bit of ingenuity thrown in, the sun transits into forward-thinking Aquarius on the 19th. On the 22nd – 24th, the Mercury-Venus partnership teams up with generous Jupiter, which offers a boost of optimism (and over-indulgence) to romance and communication. Saturn reins in this freewheeling energy on the 25th – 27th, challenging us to overcome any (self-created?) obstacles that may have materialized. And the full moon on the 25th highlights romance, activities with children and solving community issues.

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

Aries (March 21-April 19)

A test could come your way that involves long hours at the office versus spending time with a sweetheart. Communicating clearly can smooth over any relationship hiccups. The full moon emphasizes romance-the committed kind.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Travel for pleasure is great mid month, but may involve a major snafu nearer to the 25th – 27th. Taking a class to enhance your creativity or financial opportunities would also be fulfilling. The full moon energizes your home life.

Gemini (May 21-June 21)

Your flair for words can open a career door and attract money needed for a project. A serious discussion with your significant other around the 25th may prove to be a turning point. The full moon also energizes communications.

Cancer (June 22-July 22)

The full moon can make you a bit nuts over money, especially finances that involve a partner. Focus on doing some fiscal reorganizing and you may come up with a brilliant moneymaking idea. The full moon is also all about money.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Getting healthy is still your focus, but romance may sweep you off your feet (and distract you away from the gym) during the full moon. Focus on eliminating self-imposed, unneeded restrictions and creating new goals around the 13th.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

You may be challenged to overcome relationship fears this month; focus on eliminating old emotional garbage. A critical time is the 25th – 27th, when communications are key. The full moon also emphasizes healing the past.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Reorganizing your home environment is on the agenda this month, especially around the 13th and 25th, when you may feel the weight of extra responsibilities. The full moon lightens the load through activities with friends.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Saying goodbye to negative people in your life and reevaluating your involvement in community activities may prove enlightening. Take the political lead in an area you feel needs changing. The full moon energizes your career.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

The full moon illuminates romance and may involve a talk about commitment. This month is also a great time to focus on your finances and clearly visualize your money aspirations for 2005, which will help you manifest extra earnings.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

You’re in the lead, romantically speaking, and may need to decide how much time you want to devote to that special someone in your life. Don’t give in to fears of rejection/lack of control. The full moon also highlights intimacy.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Your intuition plays an important role in your life this month, if you take some quiet time to listen to your inner voice. Some fears may surface that need to be examined. The full moon highlights activities with your significant other.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Opportunities that come your way this month will probably involve (or come from) your circle of friends, so it’s a good time to initiate get-togethers (except, perhaps, on the 25th – 27th). The full moon highlights health-related activities.
