Your Weekly Horoscope - January 12 - 18, 2009

by Elizabeth Joyce

Week of January 12th – January 18th, 2009

Air, Fire, Water and Earth

The Full Moon on Saturday the 10th at 22 degrees of Cancer was simply beautiful to behold. The Cancer/Capricorn full moon is when you balance your nurturing needs with your worldly responsibilities. This specific full moon is aligned with the star Castor in the constellation Gemini. This energy has to do with the struggle to find the balance between light and darkness. Castor also represents writing and keen intellect, so you may want to get out your journal.

This week is an enjoyable time for you with the Moon opposite Venus. Everyone around you will seem light and happy, and you'll even be getting along with your worst enemies! Tension melts away as you are extra-diligent about communication. Communication is the key ant the communications planet Mercury is retrograde in Aquarius and Capricorn from January 11th through February 2nd. Aquarius represents taking innovative steps forward and Capricorn represents honoring tradition and playing by the rules.. On a personal level, clean up old stuff while setting the stage for that which is yet to come. Settling the past so to speak. On Jan. 25/26, there is a solar eclipse at 7 degrees of Aquarius. A solar eclipse asks you to dig down way deep and look to see what your Soul wants to bring forth, not just dealing with the busyness of your life. A Solar eclipse always represents New Beginnings. Mercury, the communications planet, begins this backwards path in Aquarius, continuing on to retrograde in Capricorn on the 20th, before finally ending its review and revising the cycle on the 2nd. Take extra care of your nervous system this month and practice flexibility of both thinking patterns and stretching your body to ease tension. Get your rest — eat sensibly to avoid catching a cold or the flu. You can make general plans during this time period, but don't carve anything too tightly in stone. (Usually agreements made during Mercury retrograde are either broken, changed or just do not Tuesday and Wednesday are good for quiet, detail work under a Virgo moon. A little self-purification wouldn't hurt, either. Thursday and Friday are definitely the social days this week, so get out and meet new people or connect with old friends. Saturday evening will be quieter, so plan intimate activities.

On the World Scene:

The Supreme Court Conference on Obama - did nothing this last Friday - so that surely means that is it - although those who were instigating it will continue to pick at it.

North Korea says that it is going to keep its nukes - and Iran sent all the terrorists back home - that it had lined up to get on the plane to go to Egypt. Egypt said it didn't want them - (can you imagine that) and as if Iran didn't know that is what would happen - but now it can blame Egypt. This is the kind of games they play all the time - as do many of the other countries in the world.

Looks like Europe is going to get its gas from Russia - and Hamas is being driven to the point where it is saying that it wants a truce - but it is pretty late for that.

Inauguration next week - which seems more and more likely to occur - contrary to my expectations six months ago. The world does go on - and the economy down - and to most people everything just seems to become more and more unstable. So far - there is no indication that Obama has any really new ideas or plans. Most of his appointments seem to be old school - and so it is going to be just more of the same. Even if he did have ideas that could really change things - it is highly unlikely that the US Congress or American people would permit him to implement them.

The Air Signs

Gemini - Libra – Aquarius

Gifts are on the way to you! Jupiter, the lucky planet, is in Aquarius, and you Air Signs have a yearlong gift from the Cosmos. On Thursday, the Moon in Libra trines Jupiter, and you will think very optimistic and utopian thoughts. You'll come up with a plan to save Earth and to help all its inhabitants find health, wealth, and happiness. You can do it, and the force certainly is with you. You receive a wakeup call from a family member on Sunday - in more ways than one. Your relative is someone you regard as a person with a lot of influence in your life, and it could be your dad, uncle, or even your forceful and commanding aunt. The Moon in Scorpio squares Mercury retrograde in Aquarius, and you will find it hard to relate to what this person is saying or even understand where he or she is coming from. Try a bit harder to listen to what others are saying to you this week. Now that Mercury, the planet of communication, is retrograde, you will find it difficult to communicate with others.

Your Love Week - Air Signs:

OK, there's only one way to bring back the zing – consistently - in your love life: Get over yourself! This week it's time to take off your "me, me, me" hat and start noticing the deleterious effect that your selfishness has on your life as a whole, especially in the realm of love. Granted, you're normally balanced, but when you're off-kilter, you are really in bad shape. Try to look at this situation from his or her perspective, then revisit the relationship. Remember that when you're arguing over petty things, such as whether the toilet seat was left up or the cap was put back on the toothpaste. Energy abounds this week, and he or she notices the difference. The keyword here is "fun." Relish it and pass it on! Your lover admires this most in you and cherishes downtime with you. That's what will keep the relationship fresh. The important thing is that you continue to woo this person with the best part of you - the fun part.

The Fire Signs

Aries, Leo, Sagittarius

Your ability to communicate with others goes astray this week, thanks to Mercury retrograde. You Fire Signs are always on the blunt side to begin with. The people who know and love you are aware that, if asked, you may respond that a new haircut looks awful. During the next three weeks, try to think before you speak and your life will flow more smoothly. On Wednesday you might run into snags if you're in the process of redecorating your home or moving. Be prepared to have patience in your endeavors.

Your Love Week - Fire Signs:

This week, focus on you, the person who's normally your favorite subject, but not when it comes to love. You need to come back down to earth before anything can work for you and the object of your affection. Feeling frisky? So is that special someone. Do you feel like you've been on an emotional roller coaster lately, especially when it comes to matters of the heart? Despite what you think, so has the other person. You feel like there isn't enough time in the day to take care of all of your duties, right? It seems to be ruining your downtime with that special someone, right? Wrong. All of this can be changed with a different approach to the "duty" part. Be merry! The job has to be done, so do it with the intent that the faster you get it done, the more time you'll have with your lover. There's the reward.

The Water Signs

Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces

Time to take a firm stance You’re very intuitive, Water Signs, but your inner wisdom is not going to help you cope with a situation you are dealing with in your daily life this week. On Monday, the Moon in assertive Leo is quincunx Mars in pragmatic Capricorn, and the only way to solve your dilemma is with tenacity and determination. You may have to face some unpleasant realities, perhaps about the past, and wishing your problem away won't resolve it. You may have a very difficult neighbor who simply refuses to cooperate with you, and you might have to go to your condominium board, or seek legal advice if you are a private homeowner to cope with the actions of this person. Taking a firm stance is the only way for you to make headway in your life this week, so keep that in mind. On Sunday, your life settles down, and you can focus on the metaphysical interests you enjoy so much. Mercury retrograde conjuncts positive Jupiter and you will find yourself inundated with inspiration and insight. Keep a written log of your nighttime dreams, and you will receive pertinent revelations regarding your life choices.

Your Love Week - Water Signs:

This week will prove to be a retrospective love lesson. All that's happened in recent months will rear back up and make you think. You'll learn lessons in love whether you want to or not. Ultimately, this will help you, so don't fight it or deny the truth. It will set you free and leave you more open to love from that other admirer, the one you've been avoiding strictly for the sake of the other's feelings. Guess what? The "other" couldn't care less. So go for it! You may be feeling very witty and mentally acute this week, except in your relationships, right? Do you feel like your love life is stuck in a jar of molasses? Do minds keep changing around you, leaving you feeling lost? Out of the conflict and confusion of this bizarre love triangle, a new and better understanding will come to you. Be patient and kind - two serious challenges for you.

The Earth Signs

Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn

You're a little lost this week, Earth Signs, due to the fact that your ruling planet, Mercury, is retrograde until February 2nd.. You're a very organized and efficient soul, and you feel the effects very intensely when Mercury turns retrograde. You may deal with a lot of unfinished business over matters you thought were over and done with. You'll also encounter schedule mix-ups and communication mistakes, and those scenarios will zap your mental and emotional energy. This is a great time to take it easy and actively remove stress from your life. Take long walks in areas where you feel safe, read interesting books, and give yourself permission to goof off a little. On Wednesday the Moon in Virgo trines active Mars in Capricorn and you'll get a new burst of adrenaline. Your positive energy will help you get started on projects you haven't had the ambition to pursue or that you recently put on hold. Sunday is your best time of the week, as Mercury retrograde conjuncts lucky Jupiter. Fortunate vibes will be with you, and you may decide to step out of character and wager a small amount of money on the lottery. Good luck to ya!

Your Love Week - Earth Signs:

Beautiful! That's the only way to describe the universal outlook on this week for you. Things are harmonious and it shows, especially in the eyes of the object of your affections. Do you feel like you need to replenish your soul after the holidays? Can you hear that desperate crackling? That's the sound of your immune system needing to rekindle after the deluge of holiday parties. So grab your lover and head to the spa. A dual massage, pedicure, and facial will be the perfect catalyst for nights at home together this week. It's the perfect week for snuggling. So take a deep breath, sit back, relax, and enjoy the balance in your love life. The passion can last a long time if you just go with the flow.
