Horoscope for the Week of January 18, 2004

17 January 2004

Tip of the Week:

The New Moon in Aquarius on January 22 marks the Chinese New Year. This year the Monkey reigns supreme with the element of Wood prominent. Wood is associated with any plant or stem that shoots upward from roots and soil. Growth implies health and vitality.

The Monkey is a sign of extremes representing the highest attributes of human nature such as creative genius and tactical resourcefulness, on one hand and human frailty such as envy and blatant denial, on the other. The base element for the Monkey is Metal. Since Metal cuts Wood, these two elements experience challenges in realizing harmony.

As Astrology involves a complex synthesis of many factors, interpretation is seldom straightforward or black and white. For a truly accurate reading for any given individual, one should consult with a practiced Astrologer.

However, some generalizations are possible based on one's Chinese birth sign and element for the year they were born as well as their base element and rising sign, determined by the hour of birth. Generally, 2004, the Year of the Wood Monkey will be one of many surprises as well as marked ambition and growth.

For more insight, visit my website http://www.sunstarastrology.com under the "Articles" section. In the "Schedule" section you can also learn more about the Chinese New Year Celebration: East Meets West That friends and I will host on Friday January 23 in the Hume Room at the Heritage Inn, Nelson B.C. starting at 7 pm. I hope to see you there. Happy Chinese New Year Wood Monkey!

Aries (Mar 21 Apr. 20)

A sober and strategic mood lingers. You are eager and determined to break new ground. Letting go of limiting beliefs and replacing them with empowering ones is a part of the deal. Connecting with your dreams with intentions and actions to turn them into reality is ideal. New realizations about the importance as well as the limitations of certain friendships, is central. Stay grounded as you dream about the future.

Taurus (Apr 21 - May 20)

The pace has been a little slow as you clean-up unfinished business from last year. However, a new wave of determination is rapidly rising. Gatherings with friends of like mind are gaining your attention. Security fears may be haunting you. Recognize that fear is of the mind and change your perspective. Continue to assert independent initiatives. This does not mean be alone, just decide for your self. Every day is new!

Gemini (May 21 - Jun 20)

Who are you and what do you truly need and want at this stage of your journey? The time has come to break through certain illusions and gather new skills. Our ego personality rides on fears and perceptual distortions while the heart is brave and knows the truth. Put aside your accumulated opinions about who you are and what you need and allow truth not comfort, familiarity, sentimentality and security, to guide.

Cancer (Jun 21 - Jul 21)

Assertions to break through familiar patterns is in focus. To this end, let others lend their guidance and support. This may come through books allowing getting help, privately. Make efforts to break free of habitual roles and behaviour patterns. Recognize that your beliefs and associations are the glue holding your mind-set together. Everything we think and do is learned. It is time to "unlearn" a few things.

Leo (Jul 22 - Aug 21)

Your current lesson includes learning that true leadership is a reflection of true service. In addition, any claims for leadership require an equal measure of responsibility. Since we are in the Aquarian Age now, our collective destiny is to learn teamwork. The age of pyramid power, where someone sits at the top assuming absolute power and authority is on its way out. Strategic thinking based on collective input is the new way.

Virgo (Aug 22 - Sep 23)

Changes on relationship fronts continue to rock your world like a boat on choppy waters. This can be a good thing as long as you acknowledge and accept the waves. You are determined to push through your fears to express your truth and personal power. The key is to stay focused on one thing at a time. Beware of spreading yourself too thin now and at least pay due attention to time management. Work cooperatively!

Libra (Sep 23 - Oct 21) Re-discovering and re-establishing your position in the world continues. Reviewing your past choices, experiences and behaviour patterns is part of the plot. Acknowledging where and how you have been successful and not so successful is key. Building upon the past towards a brighter future is central. In some areas you may have to renovate either physically, mentally, emotionally and/or spiritually.

Scorpio (Oct 22 - Nov 20)

Are you ready for a few surprises. I hope that you are because some are on their way. Within about a week's time some changes will lead you into new directions. Relationships, place of residence and career are all likely to feel the wave. Ambitions will spur initiatives both from your self and from others. Balance a receptive state with proactively reaching out in new directions. Be willing to negotiate and cooperate.

Sagittarius (Nov 21 - Dec 20) Ready or not, things are about to speed-up for you. Changes close to home are brewing. Communications with friends new and old will increase. Many errands and some brainstorming for new ideas will keep you hopping. Play as you can now because you are about to get ambitious and busy. Intend to actualize your dreams by writing down outlines lists and strategies. Get out of your way to get on your way!

Capricorn (Dec 21 - Jan 19)

Getting the jump on things early is your first resolution of the year. Taking new initiatives includes cleaning, alterations and repairs close to home. While you recognize the importance of visionary thinking and the weaknesses of verbal communication, you are not in the mood to philosophize too much now. New realizations are awakening you to new action. Intend to gather new tools and skills.

Aquarius (Jan 20 - Feb 19)

Weaving dreams and visions continues. To some it may seem that you are in a passive mood overall. However, you know that you are making inroads and experiencing breakthroughs, internally at least. Your values are changing and the needs of the larger collective are gaining your attention. If you think that things should be a certain way, then get going. Others need your brilliance and support. Think global act local!

Pisces (Feb 20 - Mar 20)

Surrendering your inner source of power and guidance continues. As you do, you may find that you are busier than ever. If you are entertaining new approaches and making new contacts, then you are right on track. Working together with others is ideal and likely. Your ambitions and sense of realism are growing and this trend will continue. Still, intend for some quality dreamtime. Call it fishing for guidance and inspiration.
