Current Moon Phase for Sunday, January 14th

Waning Crescent
Illumination: 6%

The Moon today is in a Waning Crescent phase. In this phase the Moon’s illumination is growing smaller each day until the New Moon. During this phase the Moon is getting closer to the Sun as viewed from Earth and the night side of the Moon is facing the Earth with only a small edge of the Moon being illuminated. This phase is best viewed an hour or 2 before the sunrise and can be quite beautiful if you’re willing to get up early. It can also be a great time to see the features of the Moon’s surface. Along the edge where the illuminated portion meets the dark side, the craters and mountains cast long shadows making them easier to observe with a telescope or binoculars.

Your Year ahead horoscope 2018

by Peter Watson, Astrologer

From The Astrology Room

The continuing story of Saturn and Uranus having a special influence on us all, personally, nationally and globally, becomes more interesting every day.

Last year these two potent planets made their way through fire signs, giving rise to much of the heightened activity, over-optimism and misspent energy that we witnessed. So what happens when they are making their way through earth signs?

Saturn has just moved into business-like Capricorn. And in mid-May, Uranus, the planet of the unexpected, enters the solid and stable sign of Taurus. Just as fire signs produce energy and impetuosity, the earth signs encourage discipline, certainty and reality. We can only wait to see whether Saturn and Uranus can influence us all in a positive way, resulting in success, innovation and care and consideration for those around us.

While Saturn is in Capricorn, the sign it rules, we should be able to look forward to commonsensical shifts in terms of government, construction, industry and institutions. Meanwhile Uranus should be encouraging technological advances – especially in money management – but also innovation in terms of fashion, agriculture, music and self-care. See what happens when these moves being made by Saturn and Uranus dominate our astrological charts and the direction in which we’re heading over the coming year.

ARIES  

Love
Late January’s Lunar Eclipse shines new light on relationships.  However, don’t believe everything you’re told, especially in March, in case you’re being deliberately misled. From late July you’ll be the one calling the shots so that by the time Uranus reverses into your sign on 6 November you respond positively to surprises sprung on you by someone trying to impress.  You’ll feel your popularity soar.

Wellness
Trying too hard to impress could bring on stress early in the year.  So pace yourself properly. Summer should find you benefiting from greater self-care.  From October new thinking in terms of your psychological well-being will make you feel more stable in several areas of your life.  Take care, however, in late November and early December when retrograde Mercury leaves you doubting a mentor’s reliability.

Personal Breakthroughs
Rigorous Saturn occupying a potent point in your chart for the whole of 2018 will up your game at work or home.  And in May cosmic shifts will set you thinking about inventive ways to manage your money.  August’s Solar Eclipse will force you to reassess an intimate relationship.  In November look carefully at travel or an intellectual pursuit that has appealed for some while.

TAURUS 

Love
Put dark thoughts about someone close down to retrograde Mercury disrupting your peace of mind in early Spring.  Study meaningful messages arriving in mid-April.  And don’t let a Jupiter-Neptune link convince you all your dreams are coming true around 25 May – and again in August. Somebody may be over-promising.  Pluto will help you uncover the truth during September.  December finds your hopes soaring, quite justifiably.

Wellness
Over-thinking could hold you back regarding health regimes you’re tempted to try until Uranus entering your sign in mid-May makes you more daring.  During Summer you won’t let inhibitions hamper inventive ways of developing mind, body and spirit.  Extreme exercise or cycling could be on the cards, although by September you’ll enter a self-reflective phase.  In mid-November you’ll stop questioning the value of something beneficial.

Personal Breakthroughs
Confusion in the family should be clarified by the time of the Lunar Eclipse on 31 January.  Professional or financial rewards will arrive with the Solar Eclipse in mid-February.  In May you’ll see how a relationship can be enhanced, provided you do your share of the work.   And in late Summer you’ll solve long-ongoing problems.  Jupiter in Sagittarius from November highlights property or financial deals.

GEMINI 

Love
The more energy you put into romance the better, especially after late January when Mars enters Sagittarius.  Good outcomes are likely before Easter and you’ll be aware of  a different kind of love from early August with gentle Venus in Libra.  By November you’ll regain hope in a situation which has sometimes seemed unsalvageable.  Somebody’s uncharacteristic behaviour could take your breath away around 20 December.

Wellness
Optimistic Jupiter dominates the health section of your chart for most of 2018. But your mind and body cannot take care of themselves.  A Jupiter-Mars link in January makes this the year for innovative means of remaining fit, strong and happy.  Explore hot yoga or mindfulness in April, May and August. In September you’ll make a major investment in yourself.  Encouraging news arrives around 2 December.

Personal Breakthroughs
Joint projects flourish from early January with positive ways of handling everyday work or financial matters appearing in mid-April.  Rewards arrive in May with the Jupiter-Neptune link.  And money-related or family negotiations will succeed due to two Solar Eclipses, one in July, the other in August.  During autumn you’ll see that much of what’s good about your life stems from the support of somebody special.

CANCER 

Love
Jupiter in a light-hearted sector of your chart should produce high spirits for much of the year.  But avoid over-promising as the Sun confronts Saturn in March.  You’ll discover a great deal about yourself and someone close under the glare of the Full Moon on 28 June.  Long-awaited news warms your heart in mid-August.  Save some energy for fun-filled escapades from Autumn to the end of the year.

Wellness
Start taking better care of yourself when the Solar Eclipse occurs on 15 February. And be wary of someone’s secret agenda while Mercury’s retrograde for three weeks from 23 March.  A quick-fix concerning health and fitness will fall short in May or August.  Avoid excess in November and around 20 December with the Sun allied to Uranus try robust pursuits such as Zumba or skateboarding.

Personal Breakthroughs
Inventive ways to capitalise on your resources will be highlighted by the Lunar Eclipse in late January.  In April speak your mind about relationship issues.  And a Solar Eclipse in your sign on 13 July highlights special talents going to waste.  Enjoy professional or financial rewards arriving on 25 September and whatever manifests once Uranus returns to the highest point in your chart in November.

LEO 

Love
Doubts about a romantic relationship will ease in mid-February.  And you  must make light of minor tiffs occurring in July when the Sun challenges Mars.  The situation isn’t nearly as threatening as it seems.  Your confidence in your closest relationship is restored in September.  And someone saying all the wrong things in late Autumn will compensate for it by December when Mercury’s no longer retrograde.

Wellness
Up-tight feelings will fade once you’re used to sober Saturn occupying the fitness section of your chart for the whole of 2018.  Seek creative ways to relax (try Headspace.com).  Energy levels should soar when Mars changes sign in mid-March.  Health supplements or inspirational fitness classes boost your morale in April and again September brought about by powerful Pluto.  In November refuse to abandon a challenging regime.

Personal Breakthroughs
Revelations about your own behaviour will encourage you to treat others differently as a result of two Eclipses – one in January, the other in February.   Your progress will become obvious when two further Eclipses occur during the Summer.  Professional or personal misunderstandings will be ironed out around 19 August.  And remember you deserve to play hard as well as work hard.  Seize travel opportunities in December.

VIRGO 

Love
Nothing should inhibit you in your dealings with someone special.  Being flirtatious pays off in February when the Sun befriends Saturn.  And in mid-April Jupiter and Pluto persuade you to be even more daring.   In early Summer a long-held dream comes true.  Developments in August will be even more heart-warming than anticipated. Unexpected discoveries in November and a robust heart-to-heart in mid-December boost your spirits.

Wellness
Indifference towards exercise will be highlighted in mid-February when you’re forced to change your ways.  If your enthusiasm dips accept help from those offering support.   And by the time of the Lunar Eclipse in July you’ll look and feel quite different.  Someone’s competitive streak will mean you strive even harder to remain strong and stable, especially from September to November when Mars provides an extra push.

Personal Breakthroughs
Unfounded fears will fade by late January.  Springtime should find you approaching life in a more light-hearted way, especially when Jupiter collaborates with Pluto on 14 April.  Close relationships will become less intense in mid-May.  In July re-assess how much support others need from you.  By September communications flow freely. And in November with Uranus and Jupiter changing signs partnership or family problems are eased.

LIBRA 

Love
Clarification regarding an intensely personal relationship will arrive with the Solar Eclipse in mid-February but don’t burn the midnight oil too often.  Meaningful discussions arise about a romance or marriage during Spring.  Someone will light up your life in late July.  However a calmer phase ends when Uranus shakes things up while entering Aries in November.  Around 20 December put life back into something waning.

Wellness
Discouraging words from rivals mustn’t prevent you enhancing your appearance and fitness levels during Spring.  And by 25 May a Jupiter-Neptune  link proves it’s worth spending money on how you look and feel.  You’ll suffer from excesses in the Summer and by 19 August you should use running and Pilates – plus massage – to get back into shape.  Mars helps you combat a lazy streak from mid-November.

Personal Breakthroughs
Give in and enjoy a light-hearted distraction in mid-February and you’ll never regret it.  And by the time of the Solar Eclipse in July you’ll be told that you are ahead of the game by somebody influential.  Financially you could do well in September when a Jupiter-Pluto alliance highlights investments or property.  Expect unusual and exciting developments in terms of one powerful relationship in November.

SCORPIO 

Love
Don’t be disappointed if, romance-wise, the year starts slowly.  Heightened planetary activity during February and March will compensate.  And you’ll adopt a liberated approach to relationships with Uranus in Taurus from mid-May to November.  Neptune will spice things up even more.  But don’t believe everything you’re told in early August.  And refuse to have your head turned by someone or something unfamiliar before the year ends.

Wellness
Stop resisting alternative ways of keeping well and strong.  Early in 2018 you’ll need to do some work on yourself.  And you mustn’t let retrograde Mercury dampen your spirits in March and April.  Slightly unusual interests – spinning or homeopathy – should help. A Uranus-Neptune connection impacting the well-being section of your chart will ensure that goals are achieved around 15 December with the help of someone intriguing.

Personal Breakthroughs
Misinformation about long-term goals will be clarified when a Lunar Eclipse occurs in a powerful sector of your chart in late January.  By expressing your creativity in May and again in August you’ll draw a crowd.  Dig deep and you’ll find whatever’s required to heal a rift with neighbours or relatives in Autumn.   A windfall arriving in November when Jupiter enters Sagittarius could be a life-changer.

SAGITTARIUS 

Love
Disruption within a relationship should cease around mid-January.  But retrograde Mercury might shake things up again during the first half of April. You must take some surprising news in your stride around mid-summer.  In November Uranus reversing into a romantic section of your chart reminds you why one particular person or situation excites you so much.  In December a fantasy becomes a reality – or does it?

Wellness
Shake off the winter gloom with a detox diet and gentle exercise.  By late March the positive outcomes will be indisputable. Between May and November, Uranus will help you decide to seek support from a personal trainer or some form of counselling in order to address an issue that’s bothered you for a while.  Aim for a sense of achievement by the end of the year.

Personal Breakthroughs
Follow your instincts regarding money-making schemes early in the year and a Jupiter-Pluto link will enhance your profits.   You should be proud of a joint project bringing out the best in you and a partner around 13 July. A journey or get-together that’s been delayed will get under way in August.  Personal triumphs in November when Jupiter enters your sign give rise to a celebration.

CAPRICORN 

Love
If love and romance go through dull patches early in 2018 Uranus changing signs in May will spice things up.  Embrace exciting new ideas so that the Eclipse on 13 July helps you prove you’re not hide-bound by convention.  Be wary of someone’s sudden change of attitude later in Summer.  And if the on-off nature of this person’s behaviour becomes too disconcerting in November, tackle it.

Wellness
You’re getting used to having your ruler, Saturn, in your sign.  So anything structured or formal should appeal – say, gym memberships or a personal trainer.  By late April, when Venus enters Gemini, your investment will pay off.  In early September something overheard or misinterpreted mustn’t derail a commitment you intend to make.   Late November finds you or somebody else assessing your physical or emotional well-being.

Personal Breakthroughs
Eclipses in January and February open your eyes to professional or money-related areas.  You’ll start to reflect on home, property or family matters from mid-April and by August you’ll realise that you’ve made all the right moves.  You’ll be hit with some kind of group gathering in September when Jupiter is positively aligned to Pluto.  An enlightened approach to domesticity will becomes apparent in November.

AQUARIUS 

Love
New light will be shone on a marriage or romance late in January.  Spring and early Summer find you going through frivolous phrases, occasionally.  However, by July you’ll have to face subtle questions about what’s going on.  The Solar Eclipse on 11 August offers resolutions. If having to assert yourself over a complex relationship try to do so before mid-November when power-packed Mars leaves your sign.

Wellness
Let the Full Moon in early 2018 set the tone for a year that’s about how you are rather than who you are.  In mid-May expect a wake-up call regarding self-care. And by July you’ll see the results of your efforts.  Attend to an age-old insecurity resurfacing due to a Sun-Pluto clash in October.  Around 22 December you’ll decide you’ve been doing all the right things.

Personal Breakthroughs
Early in 2018 you’ll understand what somebody’s really about. With help from a Jupiter-Pluto connection in April you’ll put a long-held fear of being seen in public to one side.  And Uranus in the bricks and mortar sign of Taurus from May to November will enable you to re-think a family or property set-up.  Messages from someone in authority will make you feel valued in December.

PISCES 

Love
Somebody’s selfishness will make you angry. Don’t take things so personally that in February and April minor spats become major battles.  Venus entering a sentimental section of your chart in May will soften your attitude.  During the following weeks you’ll become more receptive to the feelings of whoever is involved.  Be ready to speak from the heart around the time of early November’s New Moon.

Wellness
Two Eclipses – Lunar in January, Solar in August – energise the well-being section of your chart.  This defines a period during which you should tackle lifestyle issues. Promise yourself that by the time Summer arrives you’ll be A1 fit and healthier than ever before.  Ignore someone suggesting you’ve become self-obsessed when the Sun clashes with Uranus in Autumn and, again, in early December when Mercury’s playing tricks.

Personal Breakthroughs
Enjoy a sense of liberation now that Saturn’s left an influential part of your chart.  You can achieve great things, personally and professionally throughout the year, turning a financial hiccup to your advantage in mid-April.  Your sudden urge to travel far and wide in August will be prompted by Jupiter and Neptune, planet of dreams.  November’s news encourages big spending before 2018 comes to a close.

Your Love Horoscopes For The Week beginning 14th January)

by Sarah Bartlett, Author

From The Astrology Room

With Venus now moving on into laid-back Aquarius, we should all be welcoming new romance if single, and just feeling the joys of love if attached.

However, with Jupiter’s cautious influence in Scorpio, it will come as no surprise that any suggestions of future commitment will be met with hesitation. Just make sure you stay light-hearted and ready for positive change in the weeks to come.

ARIES

If single, it feels like there is a chapter closing, or maybe a new one beginning? If attached, maybe just a realisation that it’s time to welcome change, or evolve together rather than apart. This week, relationship wounds are dumped, but more importantly, you can free yourself from your attachment to those very injuries.

TAURUS

It’s a time when, if you don’t accept you need to rethink about the way you love, you will simply end up sabotaging your feelings. Similarly, you might deny your desire for someone, saying ‘no, of course I don’t feel that, who me?’ That ‘feeling’ is something you’ve got to now acknowledge and express.

GEMINI

Thanks to Venus moving into Aquarius, you have the charm factor, diplomatic skills and relationships are light-hearted and creative. This week your face in the mirror is more self-aware. If single, you draw intelligent characters into your life. In fact, you are natural, seductive, authoritative and balanced again.

CANCER

If you can be less worried about staying in control of a romantic situation, and more open to what may be, you will discover better communication with someone too. On offer is sexual honesty, tolerance, space and acceptance of your differences. Try it all out and see how vitalizing it can be

LEO

Now no-one likes to be emotionally blackmailed. But there does seem to be someone who’s intent on profiting from your generous heart right now. This week, you really have no choice but to break free from the chains of those who are taking advantage, and show that you have the courage to be a little selfish too.

VIRGO

It’s time to stop telling yourself you’re not good enough to be loved. Also, give up on that distorted thinking where you pick out something negative about your admirer and dwell on it to the exclusion of anything else. Welcome the positive, and you welcome true love into your world.

LIBRA

You’re either falling in love with someone new or tangled up in a love knot. Of course, you might simply obey the ‘rules’ of the love game and play safe. But can you honestly say that you will ‘obey’ anyone apart from yourself? Do whatever it is you have to do your own way, but at least honour your independence.

SCORPIO

It’s time to listen, appreciate and open your heart to what you truly want. If you are loving your partner because of their talents, then please remember that you have those gifts too. The planets simply confirm to you that it’s never too late to be as ambitious in love as you are for your future.

SAGITTARIUS

This week, you have every opportunity to achieve great personal happiness in any new venture.  But remember, there will be times when you feel like you’re having to battle a lover or partner to be heard. So enjoy a little light-hearted banter and some intriguing fun.

CAPRICORN

There’s really no choice but to open up about your true values. Consider whether you feel under some obligation from others, from your partner if attached, or if single, just from your own sense of self-doubt?  Knock them all, metaphorically, on the head, and get on and live.

AQUARIUS

A sudden realisation is that you’re about to embark on a course of romantic bliss. This week, you discover exactly the truth about your own feelings and someone else’s. So let love work its magic for you – it’s now or never to make a commitment to your happiness.

PISCES

Admirers or partners are probably more worried about their own self-development than about any spiritual affinity with you right now. But behind any hard-edged ego is also another lonely child who has a soul like your own. This week you can start to make romantic tracks again towards the merger of true soul-mates.

For The Singles: Your Daring Dating Horoscopes for the Week Beginning 13th January

David Wells, Astrologer

From The Astrology Room

ARIES (March 21st-April 20th)

There’s nothing wrong with fancying a something a little unusual, said with tongue in cheek. Venus’s move into Aquarius, Thursday, brings an eclectic mix to your love life, brings you to a place where all your usual rules go out the window. Good!

TAURUS (April 21st-May 21st)

You know what you’d like to see, you know how someone should approach you, but that doesn’t mean to say that’s what you get? Put aside how you think things should go and get ready from some unexpected romantic advances Taurus.
GEMINI (May 22nd-June 21st)

Even though things could move from intense to mayhem and back again, a new romance could be worth hanging onto if you’re prepared to put the effort in? It’s not going to be plain sailing Gemini, but it could all lead to a greater understanding that leads to happier shores than ever before.
CANCER (June 22nd-July 23rd)

You may not know who is sending the flowers, but in your head the attention is clearly coming from you know who, smile and wave, smile and wave. It’s not. Love has some surprises for you this week Cancer, not a bad thing at all, in fact it could be rather lovely.
LEO (July 24th-August 23rd)

As Venus moves into your relationship sky from Thursday, you might want to think about how much you flirting you do with anyone you’re only half interested in. Half interested isn’t enough Leo, Venus will demand all or nothing at all.
VIRGO (August 24th-September 23rd)

With a new Moon in your new romance sky, guess what you could be getting this week? It’s not rocket science Virgo, and given there’s some many planets waiting to support the Moon’s effort it also won’t take you long to get into orbit over someone new.
LIBRA (September 24th-October 23rd)

Sometimes you feel as if nothing is going your way, it’s all promises and nothing happens, but things are changing and even though it’s later this week those changes are for the best. At last you’re on your ruler’s to-do list, take that any way you want. And you will.
SCORPIO (October 24th-November 22nd)

With Mars moving away from Jupiter in your sign you could be calming yourself, considering if that approach from Shirley in sales is what you really want or whether Tom in packing does it for you? Don’t rush Scorpio, not for Tom, Dick or Harriet.
SAGITTARIUS (November 23rd-December 21st)

You can’t be the only one who has noticed someone flirting with you, surely others can see that too? Flirting? Brushing up against you in a tank-top may have been an accident Saggi? Before you go hiring the co-op hall for the reception, make sure there’s good reason.
CAPRICORN (December 22nd-January 20th)

If you’re in the mood for some come hither you could be in luck, but you’re going to have to act fast. The Moon is in your sign, new, on the 17th and that’s one day before Venus leaves you. There’s a very small window to really make an impression. Smile.
AQUARIUS (January 21st-February 19th)

Venus is in your sign from Thursday. Until then she’s reminding you of all those things that so-called partner of yours did, what he or she didn’t do and how you’ve sworn off seeing anyone else ever again. Hello Sailor. Out with the old, in with the new.
PISCES (February 20th-March 20th)

When you get to the end of the day and discover you’ve had two texts, one like and an offer of a late-night sherry from Wanderlust of Wolverhampton and realise you can’t be bothered with any of it. Park it, give yourself some you time.

Your Daily Horoscopes for Sunday 14th January

Claire Petulengro, Astrologer

From The Astrology Room

ARIES (March 21st-April 20th)
Being on time even if it’s a Sunday, is imperative to you keeping the peace this weekend. Listen when younger faces speak today. There is much you can and will learnt about what’s been going on.

TAURUS (April 21st-May 21st)
You’re tired and feel that you’ve lost your direction. I also see that those you thought had your best interests at heart let you down and left you feeling unsure who you can trust.

GEMINI (May 22nd-June 21st)
Friends may let you down, but what they will be doing in the long run is proving to you how well you can manage on your own. A new flirtation reminds you of an old one, but actually couldn’t be more different.

CANCER (June 22nd-July 23rd)
If you don’t like something, then change it Cancer. If you can’t change it, then try changing your attitude. By being honest about what you want from your future you will find out who can and will travel with you to your future.

LEO (July 24th-August 23rd)
Every day in every way you are getting better and better Leo. You no longer rely on those who let you down because you know they will do so again. Bingo, the penny has dropped.

VIRGO (August 24th-September 23rd)
No one can make you feel inferior without your consent Virgo, so keep eyes forward and stop looking over your shoulder to your past. A better mood in the home awaits if you are willing to meet an older person halfway.

LIBRA (September 24th-October 23rd)
You say you want help, but then you turn your back on close ones when they offer it. Say what’s in your heart, not the half-truths which have been on your lips. New arrangements need rethinking.

SCORPIO (October 24th-November 22nd)
Do you need to tell tales on friends, or do you want to? There’s a big difference and this is a question you must ask yourself sooner rather than later. Of course, you could always put your energies into sorting out your own needs. .

SAGITTARIUS (November 23rd-December 21st)
Never give up on a dream, just because of the length of time it will take to accomplish it. The time will pass anyway my friend. You learn much about your past you did not know this month and it makes you a better person.

CAPRICORN (December 22nd-January 20th)
If you think you can you will and if you think you can’t you won’t. These are words which rang true with you in the past and which will also make your present an easier path to follow.

AQUARIUS (January 21st-February 19th)
No one can drive you crazy unless you give them the keys. Don’t bite to negative comments today, but instead try to focus on the many new and positive influences who are waiting to adore you.

PISCES (February 20th-March 20th)
Although things will not go to plan, what does happen will tell you a lot about how far close one’s are willing to go for you. Playing games in love tonight is not an option worth considering.

If You Were Born Today, Sunday, January 14th

You are success-oriented and generally good with money. Your character is strong and you are especially noticeable. You are aware that you can’t please everyone, and this is something you accept. In fact, there will always be some people who are intimidated by your strong personality and one-track focus, but this doesn’t concern you as much as it might others. You are organized and somewhat conservative. Highly attractive, in love, however, you can be a little contradictory and challenging to understand! Famous people born today: Faye Dunaway, Emily Watson, LL Cool J, Andy Rooney, Jason Bateman.

Your Birthday Year Forecast:

Jupiter transits in harmony with your Sun this year, and you have a stronger than usual desire to improve, grow, and learn. This is a fortunate aspect that helps boost optimism and confidence, and you are able to attract fortunate circumstances into your life as a result. Problems are easier to resolve. Matters related to universities, higher education, organized religion, publishing, legal affairs, and foreign interests can be especially strong. It’s a strong time to further your education. You are likely to enjoy a larger perspective on matters that keeps you from getting lost in details or overly frustrated by everyday stresses.

Personal magnetism is tremendous this year. You are playfully competitive and might win a major competition, if applicable. This is a good period for creative projects and joining with others in pursuing a common goal.

You have tremendous enterprising spirit this year, attracting strong opportunities on both professional and personal levels. You are able to see the “big picture”, which helps you plan effectively. You have significantly more courage and gumption, making the year ahead a standout one in which you are ready to try new things and take on challenges.

Your ability to concentrate and focus is enhanced this year with Mercury conjunct Saturn in the Solar Return chart. This sometimes suggests a need for solitude when you work or a year in which you often retreat to work on specific tasks on your own. You might be required to travel for business purposes. It can also indicate that young people in your life are more mature or serious in their approach to life. Thinking in realistic and practical terms is your best bet, and the need for tangible results for your efforts is strong.

You have a stronger than usual desire to improve and learn this year, with opportunities emerging to match. Optimism and confidence are with you, and you are able to attract fortunate circumstances into your life as a result. Problems are easier to resolve. Your social life will likely increase and bring you in contact with helpful people. Travel opportunities are likely. Pinnacle successes can occur during this period – for example, publishing an important project, graduating, marrying, having a child, getting a promotion, and so forth. Matters related to universities, higher education, organized religion, publishing, legal affairs, and foreign interests proceed smoothly. It’s a good time to seek out advanced training or to further your education. You are likely to enjoy good humor, optimism, and a larger perspective on matters that keeps you from getting lost in details or overly frustrated by everyday stresses and strains.

Some disruptions in your friendships and attachments are possible with Venus in hard aspect to Uranus in your Solar Return. Unusual attractions (to people and things) can have you acting on a whim. You may deal with freedom versus closeness issues in your relationships. This Uranian energy may play out on other levels related to socializing, spending, and pleasure. For example, vacation plans may go awry or agreements could be broken. Impulsive spending is something to watch for.

This can be a year in which you are bolder, more assertive, and energetic. You are especially interested in setting goals and challenges for yourself this year, and taking the necessary action to meet them. You may meet or interact with others who encourage or inspire you in some way to have more confidence in yourself.

Your passions and enthusiasm run high in the period ahead, and you find it natural to channel this extra energy constructively. This is an excellent year for enterprising endeavors and new interests, but equally as potent for relationships and creativity. You’re drawn instinctively to certain projects that have long-term value. It can be an especially creative, tuned-in year for self-expression, not only verbally but through hobbies, games, or sports.

2018 is a Number Eight year for you. Ruled by Saturn. This is a year of power and accomplishment. Actively seeking to expand, taking educated risks, and moving forward are highlighted. This is a year of opportunity, particularly in the material and business world, and opportunities need to be seized. It’s generally not a year to find a new love partner, simply because the focus is on the material world and your place in the world. This is a problem-solving year in which you can expect real, tangible results. Advice – take action, plan ahead, seize opportunities.

2019 will be a Number Nine year for you. Ruled by Mars. This is a year of completion and transition. It is a time when we need to let go of things that no longer serve their purpose, and hold on to things that have a future. It is a time of cleaning out dead wood, not necessarily for new beginnings. It can be a time when a burden has been taken off your shoulders, and it can be a year of giving of yourself. Advice – let go of things that are holding you back, give of yourself and express your sympathetic, compassionate side.

Your Horoscopes for Monday, January 15th

Claire Petulengro, Astrologer

From The Astrology Room

ARIES (March 21st-April 20th)
To fall in love with yourself is the first key to happiness Aries. I know recent events led to you over analyzing your bad points, but you have since learnt from them and built on your positive attributes.
TAURUS (April 21st-May 21st)
Don’t lead on those you know you are not really interested in. You will only end up feeling frustrated if you do. Put your time into those you do like. You’ll soon see you’re not worlds apart but words away from a connection.
GEMINI (May 22nd-June 21st)
You can give without loving, but you cannot love without giving. You see this by the actions you are willing to take for those around you today. Good news is headed your way concerning legal or professional documentation.
CANCER (June 22nd-July 23rd)
Don’t go back to something or someone which didn’t work the first-time round It would be an even worse ride the second time. Knowing what you really want can help attract the right suitors to your life.
LEO (July 24th-August 23rd)
Staying silent about what you are unhappy about is only going to lead to a build-up of stress and tension. Be honest with yourself and others. It will ensure you get the respect I know is so important to a sign such as you.
VIRGO (August 24th-September 23rd)
True friends are like diamonds, precious and rare. False friends are like the autumn leaves, found everywhere. Today you understand what it takes to be happy. This will mean major changes and a happier future than you’d dreamed!
LIBRA (September 24th-October 23rd)
I can see your patience is wearing thin over an event you thought you had control of but which you now realise is running away with you. Be strong today, be bold and above all say no when you mean no.
SCORPIO (October 24th-November 22nd)
You think you know what lies ahead in a personal matter, but you are wrong. What your future holds is some pleasant surprises. You may get to have your faith restored in human nature.
SAGITTARIUS (November 23rd-December 21st)
Try not to cancel arrangements you have made just because you are nervous. It would be far better for you to throw yourself into what lies ahead with your whole heart. You’ll prove to others how serious your intentions are if you do.
CAPRICORN (December 22nd-January 20th)
Baby steps are the way to walk towards your future. They will also ensure that you get to the bottom of what has been going on behind closed doors in recent days and weeks.
AQUARIUS (January 21st-February 19th)
I know you think you have messed up with some of the decisions you have made this week. However, you have learnt some valuable lessons on how not to do things, so you are richer in experience.
PISCES (February 20th-March 20th)
The most beautiful discovery true friends make, is that they can grow separately without growing apart. You don’t have to do the same things as those you love all the time. Recognize this and you will be rich in understanding.

Tarot Card of the Day

Five of Cups


40

The Five of this suit traditionally portrays the mess that is left after an emotional upheaval, such as a tantrum or fit of rage. Consequences run the gamut from a hangover and lost wages, to abuse and ruined relationships.

This card is also sometimes called Inheritance, suggesting the cross-generational legacy of such tragedies. Violent family patterns magnified to a much larger scale can become war.

Your Personal Love Tarot Card

The Chariot



The Chariot is the representation of Victory and the personality traits required to attain victory. The Chariot indicates self-awareness and control. Courage—the ability to overcome fear and confront the unknown head on–is a primary ingredient of any victorious campaign and is denoted by the Chariot. So too is force of will. Often success is as much the product of will power and a refusal to surrender as it is anything else. The Chariot also represents the healthy personality of someone who believes in themselves; someone who can take control of the situation and bring events to a positive end. His successes come in competition with others.
