January 28 – February 3, 2015


For All Signs:  Mercury, known in history as the messenger god, is retrograde through the rest of this month and much of February.  It is usually a good idea to delay contractual agreements or final commitments on important decisions during these periods because information may be scanty or lacking. The months of Jan – Feb will be better used in researching, testing the results of former plans, or in some way returning to complete an old project. It is also an excellent time to review past events and focus energy in self-reflection that will help you plan for the future.

Aries:  You are likely to benefit through changes made by the Powers that Be.  You cannot reach these people directly.  “Powers” can be those who are miles above you in a corporation, legal changes in your favor, street repairs, or insurance benefits to name only a few.  This is a good week to seek healing of emotional wounds.

Taurus:  A relationship became significantly more complicated in the first half of December.   You wanted to be of assistance to another and it may have become far more involved than you imagined in the beginning.  Now is a time to make corrections in that situation.  You have the option to pour much more energy into it or let it go.  This one is better let go.

Gemini:  You may have many opinions this week, but don’t believe everything you think.  Your objectivity is limited right now so you may be missing an important perspective.  Travel to somewhere you have been before could prove fun and may lift your spirits.  Relationship(s) to friends and also to children are favorable.

Cancer:  You have likely been dealing with a decision concerning joint property or family issues.  You have spent a few weeks in this process.  Although you want to come to a final solution, that may elude you right now.  Be patient and know that the right answer will come soon.  Set it aside to percolate before you take action.

Leo:  You and partner are so tight right now that one cannot identify you as individuals.  This may feel good for the present, but it somehow creates a blind spot that neither of you can see.  Take special care with decisions.  If you can avoid them, do so.  If you must, seek a voice of objectivity from a third party.

Virgo:  It is possible that you will discover or re-discover an important piece of information that you once knew, but since forgot.  This same feature flows over to include finding mislaid papers or documents.  In case of health difficulties, look for a 2nd opinion before you take any type of drastic measures.

Libra:  Now is the time to correct an error in judgment made in early December.  It involves your job.  You may have to re-evaluate and possibly write an explanation of the action taken at that time.  Avoid a defensive attitude and be honest about your mistake and things may go better for you.  The circumstances have already changed.

Scorpio:  This is a good time to offer apologies where they are due.  You can assist in mending bent relationships.  Your words have the authenticity of power.  Use them wisely.  Remember that emotional healing is a two way street.  Both of you can be healed with an honest exchange.  No name-calling, yelling, or blaming will work.

Sagittarius:  Necessary expenses (those not of the "fun" type) may develop this week.  If not that, you could be just having a little blue mood.  It is one of those times when we become aware that our loved ones can never know or understand fully what is inside of us.  This is an existential dilemma that everyone encounters now and then.  It will pass quickly.

Capricorn:  Your charisma is powerful and you can be at your most persuasive now.  Manipulation in order to get what you want is not really necessary.  Step aside from such temptations.  Activities requiring physical energy are accented and favored now.  You have a need to get out and about to refresh your spirit.

Aquarius:  The Mercury retrograde spotlight is shining on you so brightly this week that the glare may hurt your eyes.  Make an effort not to offer opinions.  Inquire of others about their attitudes.  If you make flat statements you are likely incorrect or too adamant for comfort.

Pisces:  Your attitude about yourself is not altogether accurate right now.  You may think way too much of your ideas, or alternately, you may see yourself as lower than scum.  Neither is accurate and you should probably not make decisions of any importance this week.  Spiritual pursuits are given a "go" signal.  So are alternative methods of healing.  You may prefer solitude at this time.
