If You Were Born Today, January 30

If You Were Born Today, January 30

You are multi-talented and capable of practically anything once you set your mind to it. It’s the finding of something to focus on that can be a problem. You need a very big project or challenging path in order to gain satisfaction. A true freedom lover, feeling caged in by anything or anyone is one of the worst feelings for you. You are very intelligent, but sometimes think a little too much which can bring on states of unnecessary worry if you are not careful. Famous people born today: Gene Hackman, Vanessa Redgrave, Christian Bale, Dick Martin, Ruth Brown.

Get A Jump On Tomorrow, Your Horoscopes for January 31st

 

Aries
March 21 – April 19
People like to speak about how ‘odds are against us’. They almost delight in having recognized levels of difficulty or improbability of achieving something or making something happen. Rarely, do we hear anyone say anything about how highly probable it is that we will succeed or congratulate us for setting ourselves such an ambitious goal or challenge. You’re not looking for applause or congratulatory comments where your current goal is concerned but once you surprise yourself with what you’re about to make happen, they will be forthcoming.

Taurus
April 20 – May 20
Is it a case of ‘guilty until proven innocent’? Maybe it’s the other way around? Or is it a matter of giving someone or something more time to show you how your trust hasn’t been misplaced? In any case, you appear to be quick to cast judgment where the application of patience is likely to prove far more beneficial. As keen as you are to know where you stand with an arrangement or situation, don’t succumb to drawing an inaccurate and premature conclusion. Allowing a bit more time to pass and information to find its way to you will be both helpful and revealing.

Gemini
May 21 – June 21
A top-of-the-range sports car without an engine is still drivable if it’s sat atop a steep hill. The thrill and experience is reduced significantly but there is still a thrill and experience to be enjoyed. Of course, it would be preferable to enjoy both properly and some might find sitting in the vehicle is enough to satisfy both. Something that looks the part need not be abandoned completely if a bit of imagination can be applied. Bear that in mind now where something you truly want appears to be lacking or in short supply. An application of imagination can bring you much closer to it.

Cancer
June 22 – July 22
We are all born with an innate quest for knowledge. If something fascinates or intrigues us to the point where we must learn more about it, then our thirst for knowledge becomes difficult to quench. The more we discover, the more we discover there is more to be discovered! That’s another way of saying ‘the more we know, the less we understand’. Your desire to find out more about a situation that frustrates and baffles you is admirable and understandable but, on this occasion, there are limits to what can be uncovered or ascertained. Don’t waste time pushing beyond those limits

Leo
July 23 – August 22
There’s a popular game show where a contestant is asked a question and gives the most likely, popular answer. When given, the host turns to a large electronic board to ask what the surveyed response is. Sometimes, a big ‘X’ buzzes if the contestant gave an answer nobody else gave. You might feel you’re playing a similar game with a certain person. They’re giving answers but you’re having to compare their response with what you believe to be most likely or truthful. This game can only have one winner. That will be you shortly.

Virgo
August 23 – September 22
Conversations can go round and round in circles sometimes. This usually happens when one person feels they didn’t make their point properly the first time and can happen on both sides, which serves only to perpetuate an argument or tense discussion. If a point hasn’t been truly made, then repeating it until someone does take it on board isn’t always the best strategy. That pummels someone in submission rather than them making effort to truly understand what’s asked of them. A more sensitive approach is needed if a repetitive scenario in your world is to cease.

Libra
September 23 – October 22
Sometimes, when we feel negative toward something, our reasons stem from nothing more than ‘gut instinct’. We feel it more appropriate and necessary to ‘expect the worst’ because we believe doing so lessens likelihood of disappointment. We know we must trust our instincts but there are times when we believe we are heeding them even when they’re tugging on our sleeve telling us something completely different. Somehow, you need to override the negative voice in your head and take more notice of the positive one because the latter is definitely more appropriate now.

Scorpio
October 23 – November 21
Tension doesn’t require much to escalate. It thrives in environments where two or more people make it possible to manifest. It can be amazing sometimes how quickly tension can manifest, too. All it takes is one spark in the form of a single accusatory comment or anything else seen by the recipient to be unfair and tension is now free to do what it does best. Avoid doing two things now. One surrounds picking a fight out of frustration. Another surrounds rising to bait being set by someone else determined to pick a fight with you!

Sagittarius
November 22 – December 21
Some people are capable of lifting huge amounts of weight but struggle to say a few simple words. Many others incapable of lifting huge weights struggle with saying a few simple words, too. It therefore seems to be a universal problem. Where some people can be strong in some ways, they struggle with something infinitely easier. Regardless of your physical strength, there are a few simply words that you need to find the inner strength to say. These could be ‘I love you’. They could also be ‘I am sorry’. Don’t waste time preparing yourself for exertion. Just say them.

Capricorn
December 22 – January 19
History never repeats itself. It just appears that way. As much as we could feel inclined to roll our eyes in disbelief at having to deal with yet another scenario that mirrors one we resented having to deal with previously, the situation can never be truly identical, especially if we’re able to draw upon previous experience in ways we were unable to do so before. You could find yourself rolling your eyes, wondering how and why ‘that’ issue is reappearing now. If something was truly understood and resolved before, then it wouldn’t be. So, you know what you need to do now.

Aquarius
January 20 – February 18
People have been known to do the silliest things out of desperation. Desperation usually causes us to take action where we would have been better off cooling down and allowing more time to pass before doing so. Sometimes, we do something out of desperation and surprise ourselves with getting a surprising result but that has more to do with luck and timing than taking initiative blindly. As tempted as you might be to take action that is driven more by frustration than anything else, keep calm and collected. Listen to the part of you that knows patience is a much better option.

Pisces
February 19 – March 20
What we find difficult to say to someone else often gets stored, and often temporarily, in a folder in our brains marked ‘to be returned to at a later date’. ‘A later date’ can mean anything. In the same way supermarkets clear out of date stock from shelves, our brains do something similar. They can be awkward in terms of clearing space and do much to encourage us to clear unresolved issues when the time is right to do so. You know the issue you’re keeping stored has a finite shelf life. Either you bring it out into the open or coming developments will do more than encourage it to be done.

Your Horoscopes for Friday, January 30

horo

Your Horoscopes for Friday, January 30

Aries
March 21 – April 19
Sometimes, nothing gets our backs up quite like the feeling we’re being interrogated or our actions or decisions are being unfairly questioned. Often, the person asking the questions believes themselves to be ‘in the right’ and has a valid reason for asking them and, just as often, our response can be a defensive one. Before an exchange between you and someone else becomes confrontational, try to accept they have a valid reason for questioning you in the way they are. Then, tell them what they want to know. Be open and honest and will be fine.

Taurus
April 20 – May 20
We spoke yesterday about strangers being friends we hadn’t met yet. It’s interesting how often and easily we and others draw conclusions about those we don’t know. We take at face value what we see. We even allow ourselves to be influenced by opinions and attitudes of others. In what way or ways might you be doing something similar where a particular person is concerned? Might you be drawing an incorrect conclusion or even seeing someone as a potential threat when, in actual fact, they can play a very helpful role in your world? Food for thought now…

Gemini
May 21 – June 21
Slow and steady will win a particular race – or, rather, a situation you believe to be time sensitive and therefore needs to be done within a particular timescale. Therefore, the word ‘race’ might be inappropriate but that doesn’t alter the fact that it needs careful and steady attention. You could be faced with a sensitive situation shortly that will require you to be careful about what you do, say or how you react. The situation or person involved is volatile and needs careful handling but you’re clever enough to recognize that and know precisely what you need to do.

Cancer
June 22 – July 22
Much of what others tell us is on a ‘need to know basis’. When we are on the receiving end of such information, we can all too often believe some information is being withheld and not being disclosed. Then, what happens? We become suspicious. We focus intently on piecing together a proverbial puzzle with information we haven’t been given and that’s precisely how inaccurate and unfair conclusions get drawn. You don’t need to question someone else’s motives or actions in ways you feel necessary now. More is ‘above board’ than you think. So relax.

Leo
July 23 – August 22
If an undesirable situation keeps repeating itself, then there is bound to be a reason why this keeps happening. This likely involves you or someone else opting to put heads in sand rather than face the issue or have a long-overdue and slightly difficult conversation. A way forward needs to be agreed; you can’t keep supporting someone or a situation in ways you are. Complacency seems to have set in and it will be up to you to take action in some way to bring about a fair change. This can be done much more easily than you think!

Virgo
August 23 – September 22
Some TV soap operas tick along at tedious speeds. Storylines seem to take forever to get going and we find ourselves wondering why we choose to keep watching. ‘Perhaps’, we think, ‘if I stop watching for a week or two and tune in then, something might have actually moved forward and I’ll soon be able to catch up with whatever I’ve missed’. In the same way a watched pot gives the impression of refusing to come to a boil, you can afford to take your eye off a situation that you believe needs constant, dedicated attention from you. Give it some distance and relax.

Libra
September 23 – October 22
There’s a lot to be said for ‘playing it safe’ in an area of your world. It’s easy to refer to the past and see what occurred previously as a helpful guideline for the future and doing this is what is likely causing you to feel hesitant or reluctant in some way. Your instincts, however, should be telling you that something you’re so keen to refer to the past about has changed and it’s no longer appropriate to do so. That’s why you need to abandon a belief that you must ‘play it safe’ in a certain area and be willing to take a very small, calculated risk. It’s time to release yourself.

Scorpio
October 23 – November 21
When we stick our head in the sand in true ostrich-style, we become oblivious to opportunities presenting themselves. We can’t see them. We might not even react positively if they tapped us on the shoulder. That’s something to bear in mind now where your determination to block from view and all other senses a situation you’d prefer not to face. Through rejecting it, you’re inadvertently blocking something tangible and heartwarming trying to make its way to you. Look up, even briefly, to see what is trying hard to get your attention now.

Sagittarius
November 22 – December 21
Some legendary voiceover people have started film trailers with phrases like ‘Imagine a world where…’ or ‘Picture a world where…’. In what way or ways might you be getting a glimpse into a world that can be yours now? In the same way film trailers might cause us to feel both uncertain and excited, the sky suggests you could be feeling similarly toward changes you know are coming – and how some of these could bring serious alteration to areas of your life you’ve grown very used to. Replace any uncertainty with excitement. What’s happening deserves to be seen as exciting.

Capricorn
December 22 – January 19
We often gravitate toward situations we know we ought to distance ourselves from. We focus intently on and give too much thinking time to scenarios we know we ought to be giving much less or none toward. It’s interesting how we draw comfort sometimes from what makes us uncomfortable! We do so in the belief that we are somehow bettering Devils we know or are focusing on what is at least familiar, even if it is less than desirable. It’s time to release yourself from such thinking in some way. You owe it to yourself to start focusing on what excites and inspires you.

Aquarius
January 20 – February 18
Is a problem shared a problem halved or a problem doubled? Is it not fair to say that, when we absorb someone else’s problem it then becomes our problem too? Many people believe this to be the case but if we all thought in such a way, then we’d never offer essential and helpful levels of support to those who need it. You could be inclined to believe you’re making a rod for your own back through involving yourself with someone else’s issue but gratitude you look set to receive from doing so might just make your efforts worthwhile.

Pisces
February 19 – March 20
A ‘part truth’ is precisely that. It’s isn’t the whole truth and nothing but the truth. We tell ‘part truths’ as a way of placating others in the hope that they’ll leave us alone if we satisfy them with a basic level of information. This doesn’t always work. We underestimate others’ abilities to pursue the matter when we thought they might just go away, even for a brief period. The sky isn’t suggesting deceit on your part but it is implying a need for you to be less economical with truth in some way. What you get out into the open now will save you considerable time and stress later.

Your Love Horoscopes for Friday, January 30

zodiac

Your Love Horoscopes for Friday, January 30

Aries
March 21 – April 19
As she spends just her second day in a nostalgic part of your chart Venus, planet of love completes something that was already taking hold. Ever since lucky Jupiter turned retrograde in your romantic sector last month a sense of romantic nostalgia has been stalking you and now it’s something you’re able to fully embrace.

Taurus
April 20 – May 20
As she spends just her second full day in a social and serendipitous part of your chart Venus, planet of love is urging you to not only trust your heart, but even if you don’t feel it to embrace a sense of confidence. Even if you have to fake it till you make it choose to believe and trust in what your heart is telling you, for that’s when you’re more likely to find yourself in the right place at the right time.

Gemini
May 21 – June 21
While the Moon’s monthly visit to your sign is pushing some buttons, unlike a visit early in the New Year this time you’re prepared for the personal and/or relationship tensions this might trigger, but also the benefits. Last time the Moon wound up in opposition with Saturn in your relationship sector for the first time in 27 years, whereas this time you’re more aware that it’s simply raising the bar.

Cancer
June 22 – July 22
With Venus, planet of love still in her early days in an adventurous part of your chat and relationship forces settling in for the long haul, the love gods not only bring a reminder that it’s all about the journey, but how important attitude is. In most cases we see what we expect to see, with simply changing your expectations often changing the outcome.

Leo
July 23 – August 22
Having the Moon move through your friendship sector during Venus, planet of love’s early days in your relationship sector is making this an auspicious day for friendship and relationship building. As you start to get a better sense of what you want from your relationships, you’re able to incorporate an essential ingredient in any good relationship, friendship.

Virgo
August 23 – September 22
In Mars and Venus’ early days in your relationship sector together they’re having to compete with some compelling professional forces, so it’s just as well that they both love a good challenge. With Venus engaging your heart and Mars your passions and fighting spirit, the less time you have to give to your relationships the more you’ll fight to make that time count.

Libra
September 23 – October 22
With Venus, planet of love gone from your romantic sector but her desires and expectations in safe hands, the love gods still assigned to all things romantic regroup. Already having to compete with relationship forces romantic forces take on a more objective stance, ready now to see you start to walk the talk.

Scorpio
October 23 – November 21
Having the Moon in your relationship sector as Venus, planet of love returned to your romantic sector dampened the mood a little, but with the Moon gone it’s only now that you’re able to fully embrace the romantic sentiment and passion in the air. Yet while romantic forces will continue to escalate your relationships are on their own, making it important to hold onto the message behind any strong emotional responses triggered over the last few days.

Sagittarius
November 22 – December 21
Just 2 days after Venus, planet of love left your communication sector you’re already being put to the test, with the Moon’s second visit to your relationship sector for the year pushing some buttons. Yet as the Moon stirs your emotional responses an alignment between the Sun and Mercury in your communication sector provides the means to turn this into a communication and/or relationship breakthrough.

Capricorn
December 22 – January 19
Having the Moon in your romantic sector as Venus, planet of love left your sign in the early days of the year made it easier to hold onto the spirit of romance and the romantic desires and expectations this left you with. It was the Moon’s visit to your romantic sector over the last few days that gave you a chance to revisit those expectations, with holding onto the spirit of romance both harder and even more important.

Aquarius
January 20 – February 18
Having the Moon return to your romantic sector just a day after Venus, planet of love’s departure from your sign is keeping the spirit of romance, your confidence and your intentions high. However, with the Moon leaving tomorrow that job will soon fall to you, with a need to embrace today’s romantically charged lunar vibes, capturing and taking ownership of its essence.

Pisces
February 19 – March 20
Still in her early days in your sign and still slightly overshadowed by Mars, who has been firing up your passions and fighting spirit for several weeks now Venus, planet of love is starting to come into her own. With your passions and fighting spirit engaged from the get go as a new romantic journey begins it’s clear that this year hiding behind your excuses won’t be an option.

Daily Cosmic Calendar for Friday, January 30th

As indicated at the end of yesterday’s calendar entry, this Friday has a hard edge to it since Venus in Pisces squares Saturn in Sagittarius (12:24AM). Any celestial body making a 90-degree contact with Saturn can be seen as a sacrificial lamb, so to speak. In this situation, the usual manifestation is that love bonds, creative artistry, and social activities might suffer a letdown. However, knowing in advance that these two planets are in a sharp struggle with one another may offer you the chance to tweak them into a sense of decorum and stability despite their seemingly provocative mathematical force-field. Just about an hour after the Venus-Saturn contact, the Moon in Gemini makes a supportive, 60-degree tie with Jupiter in Leo (1:25AM). Golden opportunities seem to temporarily flourish just before this alignment becomes exact. Once the connection is precisely made, a void lunar twilight zone is switched one — lasting until 11:10PM when the Moon returns to its home base in Cancer. During this 21+ hour time-span, four auspicious alignments arrive to build up your self-confidence. Happening just five minutes apart, Mars joins forces with Pluto via a constructive and vitalizing, 60-degree liaison (5:41AM) while the Sun unites with Mercury retrograde in their Inferior Conjunction (5:46AM and activating 11 degrees of Aquarius). This latter Sun-Mercury union was given the name of New Mercury by the eminent astrologers Dane Rudhyar and Dr. Marc Edmund Jones during their pioneering work occurring in the first half of the twentieth century. This alignment actually means that the Earth, Mercury in reverse, and the Sun are lined-up in space, and innovative ideas are seeking entrance into eager human minds — similar to how fiery meteors streak across the night sky, temporarily illuminating the heavens and the earth below. Uranus is also a highly-charged and active planetary player today as Pallas trines Uranus (7:52AM) while Vesta makes an inspirational, 72-degree rapport with Uranus (8:50PM). Breakthroughs in higher consciousness definitely beckon throughout the evening hours. Eventually, the Moon enters Cancer (11:10PM) — putting an emphasis on home and family matters until the morning of February 2. [Note to readers: All times are calculated for Pacific Standard Time. Be sure to adjust all times according to your own local time so the alignments noted above will be exact for your location.]

If you’re like most people, you hit a slump late in the afternoon. When you need a quick pick-me-up that’s all natural and caffeine- and sugar-free, drink this magick Energy Elixir to boost your vitality and clear your mind.

Ingredients/tools needed:
A clear glass bottle with a cap or stopper
A small piece of rutilated quartz crystal
Spring water
A few drops of essential oil of peppermint or spearmint
A few drops of essential oil of lemon
A few drops of essential oil of sweet orange
The Strength card from a tarot deck

Best time to perform the spell: Any time

Collect the ingredients needed for this spell. Wash the bottle and the quartz crystal with mild soap and water, and let them dry. Cast a circle around the area where you will do your spell. Fill the bottle with spring water. Add the essential oils, then the crystal. Cap the bottle and shake it three times to charge it.

Lay the Strength card face up on your altar, table, or another surface. Set the bottle on the card. Leave the bottle sitting on the card for at least ten minutes, so the water can absorb the energy of the image. Remove the crystal. Open the circle. Sip this supercharged elixir whenever you need an energy infusion.
