Horoscope for the Week of January 9, 2005

9 January 2005

Tip of the Week:

With a New Year according to the Gregorian calendar now officially underway, the warm up towards the Chinese New Year is beginning to brew. The official date changes each year because the Chinese New Year begins with the first New Moon in Aquarius. The influence of the Chinese culture is sweeping the world and for good reason. In its most pure expression, the philosophy underlying all traditional practices is Taoism which is a very holistic philosophy. Yet, as is the case with Chinese culture, there is a very practical aspect to this world view. Chinese Astrology, Medicine, Feng Shui, Tai Chi, Chi Gong and Geomancy etcetera all share a common basis revealing the holistic foundation. I playfully refer to the influence of China on the world as 'the red wave'. The focus in this regard is much more cultural than political. Given the longevity rate on many Chinese people not to mention the lack of disease in their culture, we have a lot to learn from this ancient culture. (Plan to attend the 2nd Annual Chinese New Year Celebration with Michael O'Connor and friends on Saturday February 5. for more details go to http://www.sunstarastrology.com under 'schedule'.)

Aries (Mar 21 – Apr 20)

The need to get back to business vies with cultural, artistic and perhaps spiritual aspirations. Getting those hot fires to move you into practical action could solve half the problem. Rewarding yourself with enriching social activity or artistic expression is an ideal counterbalance to more sobering tasks. The New Year has brought with it something new for you. A more assertive and determined impulse will help you to break through!

Taurus (Apr 21 – May 20)

Bringing the aspirations of your higher mind down to earth is your current mission. On one hand this implies clarifying what you feel you need and want. The key here is to record your process either on paper or perhaps through art or maybe on a cassette. On the other hand, the higher self ever reaches for greater degrees of unity, communion and intimacy with other souls. The time has come to explore who you really are beyond all pretences.

Gemini (May 21 – Jun 20)

Probing the depths to access what and perhaps who you really want and need in your life continues. Communications now may take on a prophetic tone. Death of the old to make room for the new is the timeless process. All he while, deep expressions of love are welling up. With your sights set on the future, you want to know which way things are going. The question is: will any answer really soothe your heart and mind. Clarify intentions and be here now!

Cancer (Jun 21 – Jul 21)

Organizing your affairs is keeping you busy now. Your mood remains cautious and cool especially in relation to certain key relationships whether in business or love. You are eager and willing to make diligent efforts, however you want to feel confident about your direction. Patience is a key word still and will be for some time to come. Are others as patient as you are? This is a good time to increase the scope and quality of your communications.

Leo (Jul 22 – Aug 22)

Establishing a more secure and healthy lifestyle continues. With a New Year just underway, this is a good time to create some new routines and traditions and to break old ones. Hopefully, this includes more play, art and culture. Affording these higher pursuits is important, but do not get lost in the process of making the money. This is where effective time management and clear intentions can help. 'Time is art.'

Virgo (Aug 23 – Sep 21)

Creating some measurable changes close to home is a central focus for you now. You want to be more realistic and pragmatic. This includes financial goals. Identifying and letting go of self-indulgent tendencies is perhaps the first step. Clearing the clutter from your space, your mind, your heart or elsewhere is a good first measure. In terms of business, reaching back to past or existing clients could prove very worth while. Affirm your ability to create a more stable reality.

Libra (Sep 22 – Oct 21)

Balancing pragmatic action with quality time close to home continues. Fortunately, your feel inspired and energized. Initiating new cooperatives should prove successful now. Allowing for changes in your overall lifestyle is an important key. On the other hand, you feel responsible to strengthening your foundation. From a professional standpoint, fortify your self-image by being willing to take a few risks. Get organized and have fun doing it!

Scorpio (Oct 22 – Nov 21)

You are in an ambitious and determined mood. On one hand you want to acquire some things that will make your home life feel complete. On the other, you want to establish a more sustainable approach. What do you want and what do you need to do? Keep it simple and take action. Know your outcome by outlining your goals. Faith in your capacities to create prosperity, happiness and fulfillment is the wind in your sails.

Sagittarius (Nov 21 – Dec 20)

Consolidating your overall foundation is in the spotlight. This includes effective networking. Reaching out to meet new people and establish key contacts will keep you inspired. Pioneering initiatives to strengthen your resolve will keep the flow moving. Though change continues to rumble close to home, maintain a vision of harmonious and effective relationships. You have something very special so follow through on your vision.

Capricorn (Dec 21 – Jan 19)

Taking initiatives to create a greater degree of harmony in your life continues. This includes inner work at least as much as outer. Awakening to larger yet simple truths is part of the plot. Much of the confusion can be cleared by acknowledging that we are spiritual being having human experiences. Many so-called realists are actually materialists. Striking a balance between material and spiritual realities is the middle path of wisdom.

Aquarius (Jan 20- Feb 19)

Accessing your creative source is stirring your imagination. You feel bold and rebellious and want to shake things up somehow. Ideally the rebel has a cause. Bringing your visions and wisdom about truth and/or justice into manifestation will require cooperative efforts. This is the time to plan rather than to take full action. Creating initial connections will help, yet the fuller thrust will come in a few weeks. Remember, there is power in numbers.

Pisces (Feb 19 – Mar 20)

Fortifying your unique vision may imply a special mission, yet overcoming obstacles may feel overwhelming. However, more of your problems are probably imagined that real. Excuses about what is blocking you may be the block. Commitment from the heart is needed for follow through. The time has come to break through and experience new levels of freedom. Working from the inside out is the key. Yet outer action must occur as well. Commit and follow through!
