Horoscope for the Week: January 24, 2014

Michael O'Connor's horoscope for the week of January 24.

Tip of the Week:

The cycle of Aquarius is underway (Jan 19 – Feb 18). The noticeable increasing hours of daylight is a sign of it. The cycle of the Earth around the Sun, or the apparent path of the Sun, both ‘true’ from different points of view, reveals this very particular and rhythmic distribution of sunlight. This is true everywhere in the world, though less so near and at the equator and has always been and will always be. This intimate relationship between the Earth and Sun determines what season, month, day and time it is. The Moon lends an important contributing factor as well. The calendars and clocks used all over the world are based on these natural, fundamental measures. It determines the celebration of the precise moment of New Year every year. Of course, the division of the year by Time Zone designated by Greenwich and the International Date Line means that due to the rotation of our planet, there are 24 times zones based on the 24 hours of the day, the 360 degree circle divided into segments of 15 degrees of longitude each. Despite the fact that modern technology provides artificial light, the annular and seasonal distribution of light remains consistent. We are also psychologically and spiritually influenced by the rhythmic and cyclic flow of sunlight. Western Astrology works on the basis of this intimate and pervasive relationship our planet shares with its host star. The division of the year by 12 gives us the 12 ‘Signs’. As well as archetypes in themselves, these are illustrated and experienced as the seasonal flow, steadily changing yet rhythmic distribution of the sun’s light, change in weather, organic cycle, animal migrations and more. The Sun in Aquarius means that we have entered the month of mid-winter here in the Northern Hemisphere. Beyond even our precious clocks and calendars, the annual, rhythmic, natural ‘signs’ are self-evident.

 

Aries (Mar 21 – Apr 20)

‘The times are a changin’ and you are certainly taking a lead once again. At worst, this may be disruptive, both within you and close to home and thereby affecting familial relationships. There is a revolutionary momentum underway here that will peak in mid-February and carry on into March. Accept the changing status quo and be extra cooperative especially at home.

 

Taurus (Apr 20 – May 21)

You are fully in the limelight now. Yet, do you want all the attention you are getting? Making the most of it, seek favours and earned rewards and any other kind of recognition that you do want. Opportunities to improve, repair and heal performances, things and relationships, are also coming to the fore. Take a commanding lead for best results.

 

Gemini (May 21 – Jun 21)

Your sights are set on creating a brighter future. You know that to achieve this some things have got to change. It is likely that this process has already begun both within you and in certain outer circumstances as well. Connections with unique, innovative and progressive people are a source of inspiration. Aim to merge minds and visions into a new creative synthesis.

 

Cancer (Jun 21 – Jul 22)

As this week gets underway you find yourself in a deep mood. The needs and concerns of others, perhaps the world in general, is weighing in. This is provoking changes within you and is affecting your home, family, associations and professional relationships too. The deeper meanings of security and power are under review.

 

Leo (Jul 22 – Aug 23)

Some nights are darker than others. Sometimes the dark implies experiences that are heavy and difficult to bear while at others it is peaceful and restorative. Either way, a new day is dawning. This is stimulating you to more fully appreciate your relationships with family, friends, and professional associations. Above all, focus on your own healthy self-regard and inner allegiance.

 

Virgo (Aug 23 – Sep 22)

The Sun in Aquarius is activating an inventive streak. At least you will be inspired to do something different, to alter your habits and routines. Your ambitions are deeper than usual. Yet part of the answer includes variety and play. New information producing fresh perspectives and approaches should do the trick. Aim to be extra open-minded.

 

Libra (Sep 22 – Oct 22)

You are in a playful, sporting and provocative mood. You want to connect with others and they want to engage you too. Establishing a more efficient flow at home is featured. Blending beauty with function feels right. Taking calculated risks and making key investments to increase public and/or professional opportunities is your core goal.

 

Scorpio (Oct 22 – Nov 21)

A steady flow of change in your lifestyle, especially noticeable over the past few years, is set to undergo yet another shift. Your vocation and health are important factors influencing your choices. This one comes with an added measure of challenge.  A revision in some of your more important relationships may be required to improve the quality and equality of exchange.

 

Sagittarius (Nov 21 – Dec 21)

Your social index is on the rise. Amidst an increased ‘to-do’ list, you are happy to meet and greet friends new and old. Now is a good time to dress for success. At deeper levels, the three constants of life: sex, death and/or taxes, may be extra prevalent now. With this cycle of added social stimulation, focus to enhance your sex appeal for increased opportunity.

 

Capricorn (Dec 21 – Jan 19)

A window of opportunity has opened. Increased support of all kinds should be available. You may have to ask but you will probably receive. Overindulgence is the main culprit to overcome. Excess could prove extra costly now. If necessary, acknowledge and break free of obsessive thoughts and deeds. Make the most of this window and ask respectfully.

 

Aquarius (Jan 19 – Feb 19)

The time has come to be more assertive and advance your position somehow. As important as it is to take a few risks now, balance deliberate action with good judgement in your dealings with others. It may be necessary to draw a clear line between business and pleasure. Fortunately, your intuitions are running extra high now so make full use of them.

 

Pisces (Feb 19 – Mar 20)

A busy and productive time behind the scenes is likely now. The key to your success includes seclusion. Your ambitions are probably running high now so this is a good time to get ahead. It is also a good time to ask for support. Family and friends will likely be more cooperative, even supportive and you may also get more positive response for employers and new clients.
