The Week ahead
In the week before the Full Moon (3 February), it is a time to put in extra effort towards fulfilling our obligations. Mercury, the planet ruling communication and rote learning and Jupiter, the planet ruling philosophy and religion, remain in retrograde motion this week. With both 'learning' planets in backward motion, it gives us a great opportunity to look inwards and analyse how we best learn. Some people absorb facts quickly but some are happier letting others fiddle with the details. Some of us like lots of pictures and some of like tables and graphs. Whichever way is best for you, this retrograde period calls for putting down the books and spending some time thinking about how you really tick.
Venus moves into ethereal Pisces on Tuesday. Its a potent placement for all you artists and dreamers! The Moon moves through the 'summer' signs of Taurus, Gemini and Cancer this week so you might want to give yourself some time to be young at heart and give yourself permission to be a kid again.
Have a great week!
Birthdays today: Ellen DeGeneres, Wayne Gretzky and a posthumous happy birthday to Paul Newman.
Today is a good day to bask in the admiration of your friends and loved ones. Take some time to have fun, to celebrate life and to soak in your blessings. Let nothing bother you today.
Be proud of your past and honour where you have come from and how far you have progressed. Let your home be a thing of beauty and invite some friends over for a glass of wine.
Let your words be beautiful today. Write some poetry, encourage a young person, play some music.Enjoy being with your brothers or sisters or take some home made pie to your neighbours.
Today you shine a sparkle in your favourite role of Mum to All. Everything you do today from your soothing words to bringing in your home baked cookies to share will be remembered.
Bask in the limelight? You? Everyone loves you today because you seem to have the magic touch in helping others achieve their goals. Your advice and support is valued.
You've been digging deep to find some answers. Be careful about making assumptions about what looks like junk. As the saying goes: "One man's junk is another mans' treasure."
It's party time! Today is a great day to hold a spontaneous party. So what re you waiting for? Pop the corks, order a few pizzas and enjoy some time with friends.
You're on a roll and you know it. All your hard work is starting to pay off and it you're going for a promotion, today is an excellent day to throw a dazzling smile at your boss.
Spending some time getting your hands dirty is a great way to make a good impression on some folks who would otherwise not pay much attention to you. Be a kid again and get messy.
The last thing you need is to be bogged down in some emotional crisis. However, as much as you'd rather pretend you don't have feelings, today is a good day remembering that you do.
Talking is usually a strong point for you but today, you might like to step aside and let other people do the communicating. If you listen to others, you are going to hear pure poetry.
You wanna earn a bit of cash? Well, you have to get out there and do something (sort of) constructive. It's a day for the poets and dreamers to don't miss out on your chance.
