Jan 20 - Feb 18
- It appears as if your career is steadily gaining momentum. There seems to be a functional relationship between your long-term vision, the current opportunities, and the day-to-day activities that create tangible results over time. Nevertheless, everything could fall apart pretty quickly if you race too far ahead of your destiny. Slow down and take the scenic tour for a gentle reminder of the beauty in the world. Focus on your blessings, not your burdens.
- Keeping your fears to yourself today won’t necessarily make your sense of urgency go away. In fact, you may find yourself engaged in a fierce tug-of-war, caught in the crossfire as someone else’s actions interfere with your satisfaction. You may fret about a looming showdown now that the Venus-Mars opposition triggers your 7th House of Others, but your concerns will do little to change the equation down the road. Rapper Wiz Khalifa said, “Worrying is stupid. It’s like walking around with an umbrella waiting for it to rain.”
- You’re excited about wielding your power today to take control of a floundering situation. Although everything may be complicated by a web of entangled emotions, you can cut through the extraneous noise and quickly get to the heart of the matter. Nevertheless, you’re in for a few surprises along the way. Ultimately time and circumstances are on your side, but you must be willing to roll with the changes. Charles Darwin wrote, “It is not the strongest of the species that survives, nor the most intelligent that survives. It is the one that is the most adaptable to change.”
Mars, the planet of assertive drive and libido, is in your sign. Normally, this is an amazing placement. Mars here is a once-in-two-year event when you feel like you can conquer the world -- and you usually do! This week, however, Mars will slow down to a crawl, preparing to turn retrograde next week. You'll notice that you feel out of sorts, as though you're just not your normal self. Guess what? Your partner will notice, too. At some point this week, don't be surprised if you reject your lover's advances due to being tired, listless, and not "in the mood." Hopefully, your partner will understand. This trend might last awhile.
