What's Going On?

Aries – (March 20 – April 19) Spring arrives early, Aries. With Jupiter in your happy zone, you are energized and as frisky as a spring lamb. The Aquarius New Moon of January 22nd opens up your 11th house of long term goals and community connections. Enjoy the breath of fresh air that January delivers to your life.

Look to expand your horizons through networking; it’s time to meet new people, and reconnect with the ones you already know. This is also your month to garner ‘perks’ from the groups you are involved with – look for free concert tickets and take advantage of those luncheon dates. People are busy courting you, so enjoy the ride.

Taurus – (April 20 – May 20) With Both Jupiter and Saturn stirring up anxiety this month, Taurus, faith is your key to successful navigation through the seas of doubt. The New Moon of January 22nd cracks open your career sector; utilize this to your best advantage. You are being noticed now, even if you don’t think so.

The 10th house or career sector is also where you really shine, so be sure that you put your best foot forward when in the public eye. Think of 2012 as your year of reorientation, Taurus. You’ve achieved many of your immediate goals, now it’s time to really reach for the stars.

Gemini – (May 21 – June 20) Just when you thought nobody really cared; when you thought nothing would change, your life is transformed in the blink of an eye. It’s really about your perspective, Gemini; you are seeing things differently these days.

The Aquarius New Moon of January 22nd opens the doors to your 9th house of foreign travel. Getting away from your usual routine is what sets you free. I recommend a romantic getaway on a tropical island. If such an escape is not possible, take the next best option. The point is – connecting with that part of you that is secure and wise. This is really who you are.

Cancer – (June 21 – July 21) There is just a wee bit of tension woven into January, Cancer. You feel as though your timing is off, but, really, it has little to do with you, and everything to do with your partners. Pluto in your partnership sector is an undeniable force; trust that everything happens in perfect timing.

The Aquarius New Moon of January 22nd unveils your mysterious 8th house of depth and shared resources. The 8th house is also about the vital life force that passes through our bodies. You are a being of Light and divine energy; work to keep your vessel pure on the emotional as well as physical level.

Leo – (July 22 – August 22) You have evolved a life that is finally deserving of your enthusiasm, Leo. The rules of the game are changing now, and you will find over the upcoming months that your personal power and charisma are increasing exponentially.
You will also find that you are happier yet less concerned about the welfare of those who really no longer need you for their sustenance. The Aquarius New Moon of January 22nd plants seeds of equality in your 7th house of relationships. Finally you are standing on level ground and everybody plays fair - it’s about time!

Virgo – (August 23 – September 22) You are the secret winner for January, Virgo (except, it’s not a secret anymore.) Mercury, your ruling planet just keeps winging it, and in his wake, he sends butterflies your way. This Aquarius New Moon of January 22nd is a Virgo’s delight. This month stabilizes your 6th house of health and practical matters which is perfect for you.

Maintain joy in your routines, and look for constancy in your finances. This is your time to set a template for the rest of 2012; keep it calm and steady. People around you may be experiencing stresses, but do not take this on as your own; you’re good, Virgo. Enjoy.

Libra – (September 23 – October 21) I see a pot of gold in your future, Libra. It’s been hiding behind a curtain of drudgery and obligation, but is now shimmering and within your reach. Consistency is your Excalibur, and the wondrous Lady of the Lake speaks when you are relaxed and present in your body.

The New Moon of January 22nd delivers inspiration to your 5th house of creativity and childlike play. Take a day and plan what you need to birth this year. You are really setting a template for your future happiness, so give it depth and a richness of color. You’re a comfort specialist Libra; make this one soft and warm.

Scorpio – (October 22 – November 21) You can choose to feel held back now, Scorpio, or you can accept this as a time of solitude and diligent work. You just need to buckle down; great rewards are coming and you only need to be a little bit better each day. Remember that the darkest hour is just before the Light.

The Aquarius New Moon of January 22nd digs into your 4th house which rules your actual housing as well as your roots and core energy. Many of you will actually move, others will take a new look at how the soul resides in a body. Meditation is a tried and true practice that brings us into a state of spiritual cohesion; make it your new best friend.

Sagittarius – (November 22– December 20) You can make great headway this month, Sagittarius. The secret lies in accepting that a tiny bit of extra effort goes a long way. Is your boss cranky now? An unexpected cup of coffee does the trick for both of you – boss is calmed down and you are lifted up.

The Aquarius New Moon of January 22nd speaks volumes in your 3rd house of communication. Talking is important, Sag; think of yourself as a messenger. You may have an opportunity to earn extra income through writing or even some type of art work. It’s all about the message; what you have to say, and how you say it.

Capricorn – (December 21 – January 19) You are in line for a fabulous year ahead, Capricorn. With the benefactor planet Jupiter moving through Taurus, you can set sail and head for the rainbow. There is just one thing that will bring occasional rainy days. From time to time you will have to remove those rose colored glasses and ask some hard questions to get the real story.

The New Moon of January 22nd engages your 2nd house of earned income and self-worth. Aquarius is a sign noted for thinking outside the box; this is your path to breaking through any financial limitations. 2012 is a year for quantum leaps. Think about doing something you have never done before – it will serve you well.

Aquarius – (January 20 – February 17) As an air sign, yours is one that excels in logic and even debate. But, it’s now time to lead with your heart, Aquarius. Also, your intuition is coming into clear focus. It all comes down to creating a life that really makes you happy.

And, the answer lies in evolution of your work as well as your play. Something new is coming your way. The New Moon of January 22nd is in your sign, Aquarius, and it’s the Chinese year of the Water Dragon, the animal who successfully lives by his or her own rules. Take this to heart now, because nothing else will make you happy.

Pisces – (February 18 – March 19) With Venus in your sign after the 14th, you are hot! Venus is soft and sensuous in Pisces; and the best part is that next month, on February 8th, she moves into your 2nd house of earned income. Mars in your relationship sector until August 24th opens the door to finding a perfect partner. You may reconnect with someone from your past when Mars turning retrograde on January 23rd.

The New Moon of January 22nd lifts the veil of your 12th house of repose and solitude. Use this month to fertilize the fertile garden of your innermost soul. The seeds you plant now will bear fruit by the fall.
