Stargazer: Jan. 9 – Jan. 15, 2019


For All Signs:  Since the end of December we have had numerous aspects related to Pluto, planet of the 1%, plutocrats, the economy and all Powers that Be, including death.  The bright side tells us that transformation is at hand; the truth is exposed; and spotlights will chase shadows away.  The more seamy side of Pluto has to do with manipulation of the highest order with its self-serving tactics.  Pluto’s motion is related to vast power and social/political judgments which affect the masses.  This is prominent not only in the USA, but worldwide.  It seems fitting that these aspects are occurring now, given the unstable condition of many structures.  I hope for positive, phoenix-like transformation, even though it will surely require time to manifest.

Aries:   Chiron will soon enter your sign.  This points rather directly to your physical and emotional well being. If anything is outside of normal, it will begin to nag at you.  Don’t ignore symptoms because they won’t just go away.  Make a plan to see your doctor soon for symptoms.

Taurus: Changes may be occurring in your primary relationship. One or the other of you is probably trying to hang onto what is familiar.  Changes and growth must be allowed to happen or the relationship will become stale.  Let things flow naturally. Don’t jump to conclusions or make problems bigger than they are.  

Gemini:  This is a good time to communicate with your partner.  It is very important that you set the Critic aside and engage in a conversation about feelings, even if you think it is about things.  For example, if this person did not do something that was expected, avoid the blame game.  Ask what was happening on the interior that kept him/her from completing the plan.

Cancer:  The eclipse energy of this month continues its background effect on everyone, but most especially on Moon Children.  Tune out if this energy is too much for you.  Indeed, whether global or personal, anything built on sand rather than solid ground, is showing cracks and signs of impending change.

Leo:  Your work or daily routine takes on a quality of intensity this week. Family and home matters may play a part in the situation.  Concentrate on breathing deeply and moving with deliberation.  It is possible that you are more intensely emotional than the situation deserves.  Take a step back and look at it from a larger perspective.  This is likely to be something that affects you, but is not about you.

Virgo: Details may nag your mind and your time like pecking ducks.  You and significant others are not having the best of communications right now.  You may be in the mood to nit-pick yourself or others.  Probably you will feel generally better if you work alone.  Put the Critic in the closet.

Libra: There is a potential for becoming caught in ego games with a loved one.  Any of the “games” will do, but this week’s aspect is particularly fond of playing “How much do you love me?  Prove your feelings.”  You could be asking the question or the Other might be asking you.  Try to stay with communications that are more authentic.

Scorpio: Please note the opening paragraph about Pluto because it is one of your ruling planets.  Concentrate on serving up the truth as you know it with tact and diplomacy.  The Scorpion sometimes delivers their thoughts about others with a force that can be hurtful, even though you perceive it as being for their own good.

Sagittarius:  If you have been channeling your energy into a project that has positive value for many you may be receiving recognition and applause now.  If, instead, you are working on something that is purely to make your ego shinier, you will find others are fighting you every step of the way.  Think about your motives.

Capricorn the Goat:  (Dec. 21– Jan. 19) You may need to concentrate to avoid critics, whether they be internal or external.  Instead of accepting blame or guilt, use the energy to make improvements wherever they are needed. Avoid contracts and business negotiations for a week or so because misunderstandings may develop.

Aquarius:  The more you attempt to hurry, the more rocks in your path.  You might just as well take your time and allow things to develop as they will.  Rushing along will not get you there any faster.  If a traffic jam gets in your way, try to take it in stride.  These things happen with regularity.  The cosmos is not pointing at you.

Pisces: This is a fine time to enjoy books and/or TV, meditate and journal.  Give yourself time for self-exploration and even just “diddling around” and relaxing.  Your dreams are meaningful and your intuition strong.  Beware of any offer that looks “too good to be true”.  Yes, it is.  Don’t bite, lest you lose.
