Horoscope for the Week: January 3, 2014

Michael O'Connor's horoscope for the week of January 3, 2014

  • Jan. 2, 2014 6:00 p.m.

Tip of the Week:

As is customary for this first issue of the year, each horoscope entry will provide an overview of themes and trends that can be expected in 2014. The year begins with a dynamic exchange of energy between Mars, Jupiter, Uranus and Pluto. All 4 of these planets are in Cardinal Signs which are symbolic of deliberate initiative. The particular ‘aspects’ or energy exchanges between them indicate powerful assertions of change affecting us individually and socially. This particular series of interactions already began in mid-December. As usual many of these will stem from official places and certainly not all of them will prove popular. We can expect more of the same over the first six weeks or so anyway of 2014. On February 18, 2014 the Moon’s Nodes will leave Scorpio and Taurus and enter Libra and Aries. This 18 month cycle will coincide with aggressive social elements seeking a new quality of diplomatic exchange towards fairer solutions. The other big news includes Jupiter entering Leo in mid-July 2014. This combination is combustible, inflated and dramatic. Positively, it could produce more support of the arts and to services and laws linked to the health and welfare of children. As well, we will likely witness new, charismatic leaders coming to the fore boasting powerful slogans of change. 2014 is a universal 7 year which is also in sync with the themes mentioned because it also indicates initiation. Since it coincides with the year of the Wood Horse, we can expect 2014 to be very fast paced and dramatic packed new initiatives that will spur humanity on to its next stage of evolutionary experience.

 

Aries (Mar 21 – Apr 20)

Cultivating a new quality of exchange in some of your closest relationships will be a core theme in 2014. You will continue to undergo measurable changes which may be linked to the way you look, think and conduct your affairs generally. At best, this includes a steady rise of power, authority, responsibility and confidence.

 

Taurus (Apr 20 – May 21)

Plans, dreams and schemes that have been brewing in the back of your mind for a long time will be brought out into the open this year. By mid-summer the pace should slow and the scope narrow compared to the past couple of years. This will help you to feel happier and more at peace. Still, your sights set on the future will remain a core focus.

 

Gemini (May 21 – Jun 21)

A steady learning curve with a major focus on health and/or the overall quality of your lifestyle will continue. You will feel inspired to do something extra special in 2014. Yet, to make your dreams, visions, hopes and wishes come true, you will be challenged to be more disciplined. Expect to work harder towards realizing measurable results and returns.

 

Cancer (Jun 21 – Jul 22)

The process of or at least the prospect of entering new territory somehow will continue through the first half of 2014. Then even more attention will be directed to home and family than usual. Learning about and making investments will gain your attention especially during the second half of the year. Generally, your financial picture stands to improve.

 

Leo (Jul 22 – Aug 23)

You will become more assertive and decisive this year. Your focus upon the future will inspire and/or challenge you to increase your network of friends and contacts. By summer you will be in the mood to take bigger risks than usual. Increasing the scope and quality of your creative abilities especially where financial returns is featured will emerge as a core motivation.

 

Virgo (Aug 23 – Sep 22)

Knowing your direction and empowering your focus with knowledge will continue all year. Taking calculated risks to strengthen your professional standing will remain a core theme. This could include a steady increase in your scope of friends and professional contacts. Yet, you will be inspired and perhaps challenged to move on somehow without looking back.

 

Libra (Sep 22 – Oct 22)

A process of establishing a whole new foundation which began about 1.5 years ago will continue this year. It will require, however, that you become even more assertive, determined, decisive and disciplined. Beginning in July this practical focus will turn to include a broader scope of social, political and/or humanitarian interests and causes.

 

Scorpio (Oct 22 – Nov 21)

A process of devising, designing and implementing the next major focus of your life will continue in 2014. Philosophical and/or metaphysical interests, especially towards gaining a clearer sense of your own individuality and particular needs will remain important all year. Yet, the focus will swing significantly to the importance of relationships by summer.

 

Sagittarius (Nov 21 – Dec 21)

The cycle of clearing, purging, dissolving and completion in your overall lifestyle will continue in 2014. According to your evolutionary need this process has probably already proven to be quite dramatic. At best, you are feeling more liberated. The pressure will ease off somewhat during summer and will guide you to be more social and communicative.

 

Capricorn (Dec 21 – Jan 19)

Increasing your scope of influence will continue in 2014. In fact, you can expect it to go up a notch or two before spring. It remains important that you forge even stronger alliances with other key power players. As well, make sincere efforts to clear past debts and any other liabilities. Aim to establish a positive momentum by summer anyway and it could produce significant returns.

 

Aquarius (Jan 19 – Feb 19)

The steady if challenging task of refining your skills and establishing a more powerful place for yourself in the world will continue in 2014. The good news is that the cloud cover on your emotions will begin to clear by March. As well, your scope of social outreach will begin to increase by early summer. Overall, you can expect a progressive year.

 

Pisces (Feb 19 – Mar 20)

It is important that you build a promising momentum by summer that will help see you through and into 2015. You will have to pay more attention to the details this year so do what you can to keep your mind clear and sharp. It may prove necessary for you to deepen your commitment, resolve and efforts. Set a determined pace early in the game to win.
