Happy New Year! Your planet Venus is still feeling sociable as 2013 begins. Venus remains in the lively fire sign of Sagittarius until the 9th and you’ll want to get out and about and have some fun.
Sagittarius rules the sector of your chart that’s to do with communication, meeting new people, enjoying your local neighbourhood and connecting with neighbours or siblings. If there’s anyone who can keep the festive spirit going for a while longer, it’s a Libran, so do your best and enjoy the start of the New Year.
It’s also a lively month for love and romance with Mars, your partner planet, in Aquarius and your romance sector throughout January. On the 1st, Mars teams up with lively Uranus in your opposite sign of Aries. This is potentially sexy, definitely impulsive and is bound to bring a few surprises your way. Uranus is an unpredictable energy and it’s been in your relationship zone since early 2011.
Things happen quickly when Uranus is around so if you met someone on New Years Eve, you may already be head over heels in love. Libra is the sign of relationships after all and if you’re a typical Libran you have a romantic nature and love being in love. Libran Kate Winslet has just announced her third marriage to Ned Rocknroll. They met in summer 2011 when she was dating a Burberry model and it was a secret wedding, which fits Uranus’ impulsive nature.
Love continues to be important throughout January for you, as both the Sun and Mercury enter Aquarius and your romance sector on the 19th and there’s a Full Moon cutting across the Leo/Aquarius axis on the 27th. The 22nd and 25th feel spontaneous so open your heart and declare your true feelings. At the Full Moon you may feel ready to make an important decision regarding love and romance. It’s often a time of culmination or completion.
Aquarius is also the sign that rules children, creativity and entertainment so if you’re not in a relationship, it may be one of these areas of your life that springs surprises. A pregnancy, an award or a big event; you may not know right now what it will be but embrace life to the full and see what arises.
Another important date this month is the 30th when Jupiter, planet of opportunity, turns direct in your fellow air sign of Gemini. This puts the spotlight on travel, study and broadening your horizons. Jupiter picks up speed in Gemini where it remains until late June and if there’s something you really want to do, the end of the month is the time to make it happen. On the 26th June, Jupiter enters Cancer and your career sector so it may be that whatever you do now is working towards something specific with regard to your vocation; new qualifications, a study trip abroad or a more spiritual or philosophical approach to your work. Be open to all possibilities and expand your life to benefit you.
There are more serious issues to consider this month especially once your ruler Venus enters Capricorn on the 9th. Capricorn is the sign down at the bottom of your chart so this is about your family, your home or your past. There’s an intensity about this area of your life due to the planet Pluto also in Capricorn. Take note of what happens on or around the 6th and especially the 17th when Venus and Pluto connect in the heavens. Sometimes Pluto negates what it touches so this may be about closing a door on the past or saying goodbye or letting go of something or someone. It depends on your personal situation what this entails but there’s a depth of feeling and emotion connected with what’s happening.
The other planet that interacts with Venus and Pluto is Saturn, the planet of responsibility and the get-real planet. In Scorpio, this puts the focus on your finances so there may be a big decision to be made with regard to money or property. Turn to someone older and wiser to guide you but also realise that you have to do things by the book. You can’t cut corners here and whatever particular issue needs addressing, take responsibility for your situation and sort things out to the best of your ability.
The New Moon on the 11th falls in this same sector of your chart and this is a great date for new beginnings, to sow seeds that can grow and flourish further down the line. You may have to be bold to transform your situation but do what you believe is necessary.
