Your first big shock of the new year has arrived. It could be a welcome relief, but you may not know what to do with it. Were you expecting company?
King of Swords Reversed
Distrustful and paranoid. Capable of malice. Power abused.
Taurus reversed represents unwarranted stubbornness and impulsiveness.
Earth is the card of everyday life. Earth makes riches of all kinds available to those who are in tune with her.
The Devil card is a sign that you are letting false ideas of love and relationship affect your current reality. There may be more to your current situation than meets the eye, but you will only be able to see this truth when you can alter your perspective. As you let go of your feelings of being helpless or caught in someone else’s game, you will gain greater understanding.
The Tower card is illustrated with the Tower of Babel, a tower filled with chaos and corruption where no one understood each other. The lightening is an act of god blowing the material importance of the tower’s roof, a crown of gold off the top as the tower explodes. Those who survive have not only learned the lesson of the Tower, they are freed from its repression. Today, you must overcome chaos with calm.
You’ve had sexual fears in the past, but you’ve done a great job getting over them. The Moon card shows that something was hidden, but now that you’ve brought it out into the light you’re ready to obtain a true form of sexual bliss. You’re no longer lacking the courage to make the first move, freeing you to seduce the object of your desire, which will relieve the pressure somewhat. Be receptive. Do away with illusion. Being able to see that you deserve fulfillment is the first step to finding it.

Astrological Correspondence: Gemini
The Lovers card is representative not only of crucial life choices, but also of lovers, couples, and other partnerships, like business partners, siblings, and friends. The angel between a woman and a man, depicted on this card, symbolizes the struggle of deciding to follow one’s heart versus one’s temptation or obligation. The Lovers card symbolizes the choices that must be made to progress toward higher self-awareness; choices also reflect emotional values, indecisiveness, hesitation, and our fears about making wrong choices. This applies not only to love relationships – it is applicable to any relationship in which people are drawn together, even a casual one. It’s the card of uncertainty!
You are a charming, enigmatic person with a dual personality. Sometimes extravagant, and at other times cautious, your contradictory nature often baffles others. However, overall, you possess personal charisma and others find you fascinating. You have an unusual intelligence and insight into human nature. You are not always successful in your attempts to use tact, however! Curbing your excesses is something you can spend a lifetime attempting to do, simply because although you are aware of the self-indulgent side to your nature, you are not always in control of it.

Your Birthday Year Forecast:
With the Sun and Moon in a waxing semi-square at the time of your birthday this year, the period ahead is one of new initiatives and action. You possess quite a bit of energy, but you must be aware that emotions color much of what you do this year. It can be hard to be objective as a result.
This can be a year in which you experience important turning points, or you could begin new projects or goals that have a long-term impact on your life.
Saturn forms a transiting square to your Sun from March to December 2019, and this can be a time when you’re challenged to get organized. It can be a period of fixing problems or taking on responsibilities so that your life runs more smoothly. You’ll be working hard at disciplining yourself now. As you face obstacles to your goals, you begin to see the tools with which you have to overcome them. The need to re-structure and re-organize your life will be apparent at some point this year. Apply yourself to your work and duties for best results. Much can be accomplished this year! Although you may not see immediate results for your efforts, important groundwork can be laid for the future.
You also benefit from a Jupiter transit to your sign in approximately the same time period (from February to October), and this can help lift your spirits and increase your confidence. This transit can bring distinct opportunities into your life.
An influence on your Solar Return chart this year helps ground your thinking and turn your thoughts to practical considerations. Advances in intellectual and mental pursuits are likely, as you make steady progress that has long-lasting results. It’s a good year in which to get organized, to do detail work, and to prepare for the future. Work done during this period in your life will have tangible results in the future — you’re laying down the groundwork for future successes! Even so, there are times when your mind is working at top speed and perhaps ahead of itself. This means you can get a whole lot done, but you may not always find others are understanding you. Your senses are stimulated, and you could have sudden flashes of insight or fresh new ideas.
This is a year in which you seek out nourishment and naturally nurture and support others. Needs and cravings are in strong focus, and you’re drawn to those things you feel are more wholesome, healthy, and natural. This can be a year in which you make significant lifestyle improvements and/or positive changes to your home and family life.
You’re also quite driven to make improvements and effect positive change in the year ahead. This impacts many areas of your life beyond the personal, including relationships and work.
Venus harmonizes with Neptune around the time of your birthday this year, and you are more imaginative and attuned to the world of beauty and romance in the year ahead. Gentleness with others is the best way to harness this energy and to attract what you want into your life. There could be truly “magical” times on a romantic and social level. You are especially romantic this year, and you are likely to idealize and expand a relationship through sensitive interactions and a more giving approach. Benefits come through paying attention to your dreams and intuitions, as well as through creativity. Mind you, Venus also squares Mars, and while some relationships are gentle and inspiring, others (or a key one) can be competitive or temperamental.
This is a year of initiative and energy. The period ahead is likely to be a strong time for getting your life back on track and taking care of loose ends, although there can be times when it seems slow-moving as a result. Some relationships (or a key one) can work quite well, while others can be up and down. Your creative and love urges are powerful indeed! Focusing will be the key to success. You are taking on new responsibilities, but generally, you enjoy the challenges.
2018 is a Number Six year for you. Ruled by Venus. This is a year of relative contentment. It’s a time when love is the easiest to attract, and partnerships formed under this vibration have a better chance for longevity. You are especially able to attract others–and material things as well–this year. This is a good year for establishing harmony in the family and the home. Advice – develop existing relationships, be positive and receptive because these kinds of energies help you to attract what you desire.
2019 will be a Number Seven year for you. Ruled by Neptune. This is a year of preparation, chance, and refinement. It is not a time of dramatic changes. Instead, it’s a year when reflection on the past is helpful, and when refinements to your life path should be made. It’s a good year to study, observe, research, and analyze. Unexpected twists to your life story and “chance” meetings are probable. Advice – take stock of your life in order to prepare for more exciting years to come, examine the past and plan for the future, get in touch with your deepest needs and uncover your personal power, don’t strain yourself or actively try to expand.
Pucker up! Kissing styles differ from zodiac sign to sign: Passionate Scorpio kisses are deep and long, while Geminis keep the smooch light.
Finding your best kissing match won’t necessarily guarantee complete happiness and happily ever after, but at least you’ll get some fun kissing practice out of it. See which sign would you most like to snag a kiss from:
Assertive, forceful, energetic, and powerful… Aries is ruled by fiery Mars, and if there’s one thing Mars knows, it’s how to turn up the heat. Aries can channel all of that fiery red energy into one red-hot kiss. This sign approaches kissing the way it approaches everything else — delightfully impulsive. If there’s anything left to be said, it’s this: Brace yourself.
Slow, sensuous and solid as a rock … that’s Taurus, and that’s why their relationships tend to last longer than many other signs. The other reason is their sense of touch — the way they have of brushing their hand against yours in such a way that you know the kiss will occur long before it does. And if it’s everything your Bull thought it would be and more, you won’t want to part.
If you’re interesting, colorful, move quickly and keep them guessing, Gemini won’t stray. But first you’ll have to capture their attention. The process goes like so: First, the glance. Then the wink and/or smile, followed by the first few words (yours better be amazingly glib and charming). Gemini will watch to see if you’re capable of keeping the conversation going for hours instead of just moments. Finally, (drum roll, please) the kiss. If the liplock is quick, sexy and playful, and leaves more to their imagination, they’ll be back for more. If they pull away before you do, toss their number. You blew it.
Before making a move on Cancer, take a look around your home, or ask someone to be brutally honest about how it feels to be there. If they tell you it’s homey, comfy, and they just feel good when they’re sitting in your kitchen, great. If not, invest in some appliance covers, a whole bunch of knick-knacks, and a welcome mat for the front door to create an environment they’ll feel comfortable in. When you initiate the kiss, it will be warm and wonderful, and you probably won’t want to stop at just one (both kisses and hors d’oeuvres).
Pretend you’re a contestant on ‘The Bachelor’ or ‘The Bachelorette.’ Can you imagine waiting in line to see if you’re the one who’ll get the rose? That’s what it’s going to be like to try to woo a Leo. If you’ve got one of these romantic creatures in your sights, keep in mind that you are most definitely not alone on your quest for a kiss. You’ll only win that rose if you put everything you feel for them into it. Everything.
Virgo is turned off by dirt, disorganization and chaotic surroundings, so they’ll want the conditions to be absolutely perfect before they’ll be able to relax and enjoy your kiss, so help them prepare. Move to a quiet corner of the party where you can be “alone.” And because they don’t like things sloppy, sweaty, unrefined or clumsy, keep your kiss soft and clean — save the spit swapping for another day!
Libras are the romance-makers of the zodiac. They live to please their significant other. The catch is that they also want their mate to live to please them. If you’re after one of these partner-oriented creatures, the best thing you can do is to let them know that you’re ready to settle down. Then, make the time you spend with them perfect and your kiss the most passionate, romantic experience they’ve ever had. The good news is that they’ll do the same for you — and the kiss you share at bedtime 35 years from now will be just as exciting as the first one.
There’s really only one word that can be used to sum up Scorpios — and it goes for any Scorpio in any place at any moment of any day: Passion. They’re passionate about anything and everything they do. So you can only imagine how passionate they might be when they’re face to face with someone they’re attracted to. Scorpio can’t NOT kiss you! And of course, you’ll remember this long, passionate kiss for many years to come.
Sagittarians always want more — especially when it comes to kisses. So if you’re after a kiss from a Sag, it may not be tough to come by. But do think about making it memorable because you’ll be up against a myriad of competitors. Your best bet with Sag is to keep the kisses coming to make sure they’re paying attention. After all, what Sag loves most is more and more of what they like: Your kisses!
Capricorns can be rather tough to romance, but it’s not mission impossible. It will just take a bit longer to accomplish. Start horning in on your Goat far in advance of the actual kiss so you have time to work ’em up to it. Don’t worry, it will be worth the extra effort. Your kiss will be a refined, elegant and seriously sexy smooch.
Aquarians are eccentric and proud of it, but they actually tend to be most unremarkable when it comes to romanticentanglements. While they’d never admit it, they flit from fling to fling quickly until ‘The Real Thing’ arrives. That could be you, depending on how you kiss them. They prefer kisses as sudden, startling and as amazingly different as they are. If you’re up for the challenge, approach them with a very determined look in your eyes or don’t bother at all.
In the Pisces mind, the first step toward deciding whether or not to let you close is whether or not they feel comfortable with physical closeness, which starts with the way you smell — no kidding. So be sure to wear a fragrance, but nothing too overpowering. If you make the first kiss soft and tender it will pave the path to intimacy with this sensitive sign.
