Surprises for Saturday, January 14, 2012

Aries (March 20-April 19)
When Venus is in Pisces, as she is now, she eats, sleeps and breaths love. Feed her with your love and appreciation and she’ll return it 10 fold. Art, poetry, and music are the food of her soul--go create something beautiful. Mixed in with this graceful Venus, is a a sideways feisty vibe from the Moon. You’re very tuned-in to the reactions and feelings of those close to you, but so much so that you unwittingly adopt their attitudes in an effort to keep the peace. Check-in with your heart.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)
You have an enormous capacity to understand the feelings of others which is accented right now by Venus’ move into your friendly neighbor, Pisces. Loving and being loved are easy. Venus is your primary influence throughout your life, giving you a powerful emotional nature which you will feel very strongly now. A minor cross current today indicates you may get a surprise or jolt of excitement about your work.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)
It’s a manners-please Moon, who wants everything done with grace and charm. You’re happy with the easy peaceful feelings now. But your emotions have a challenge from down under. You may get on a roll with a feeling, a somewhat obsessive one, and it snowballs into a reaction much bigger than you planned. This will most likely affect your creativity, children, or romances.

Cancer (June 21-July 21)
A sweet harmony exists for you now in your relationships since the goddess of love entered your compatible water sign, Pisces. The emotional depth of a love entered into under the sweet umbrella of Venus in Pisces encompasses the unconditional acceptance and universality of a soul union. At the same time, your home takes on more importance for you. You may get a bit obsessive about securing your fort--making your home a place of true santurary.

Leo (July 22-August 22)
If you’re looking to put inspiration into your art, music, or poetry, Venus moving into Pisces will do that for you. Find it in some quiet moments. The hard wiring in your brain is getting shots of energy, exciting and edgy. At the same time, there’s a cross current in your emotions. You may become obsessed with getting your point across. The calm and harmony that you wish you had in your relationships seems to elude you, but the excitement and inspiration make up for it.

Virgo (August 23-September 22)
If you’re careful about one thing--feeling so sympathetic that you take on the feelings of another--you can enjoy the boundless artist inspiration Venus in Pisces brings you. As your opposite sign, Pisces pulls out your healing energy, mixes in your need to serve, and adds the flavor of it’s famous compassion. Just be watchful for a contrary vibe from the Moon. A tendency to become so involved in what you’re doing that you become compulsive about it. Trying to please everybody around you just tires you out.

Libra (September 23-October 22)
Venus is at her most romantic and sensitive self now that she’s in Pisces. However, her heart is so open that she also needs demonstrations of affection in return, to keep the love loop thriving. Ask for hugs--you need them right now. The Moon is now in your sign, where she’s quietly charming (like you!). A Libra Moon is very concerned with keeping everyone happy, and will bend over backwards to keep the peace. The harmony is worth it you think. But your emotions also get a jolt, actually a direct lightening hit, which can excite and motivate you. Just keep one hand on the grounding rod.

Scorpio (October 23-November 21)
Venus the goddess of love is now in Pisces, a harmonic water sign vibe for your Scorpio. You’ll feel her inspire the kind of love that deeply touches the soul. The enormous sensitivity this Venus brings to you adds artistic gifts and a smooth graceful manner in the way you interact with others. It’s a mixed bag however, since there’s an undercurrent of nervous energy putting you on edge. And keeping you on your toes!

Sagittarius (November 22-December 20)
Miss Manners is loose today and she wants to make everything nice, even insisting you change your clothes, and your attitude, before dinner. But you’re not in the mood to be told what to do. If someone tries to restrict you, either by getting in your way or by causing a disruption that derails your plans, you’re likely to fight back. Your saving grace is your heart, where Venus is resting quietly--reading a little Rumi.

Capricorn (December 21-January 19)
Venus in Pisces is able to understand and empathize with all the different manifestations that love can take in the 7 billion of us here on this planet. However, your acceptance of the flaws in others is key to keeping your love alive. Emotions are in an on-again off-again state, which creates some edgy anxiety. You are on guard, ready for a fight if need be, because you’re not in the mood to be boxed in a corner.

Aquarius (January 20-February 17)
An electric shot to your feelings leaves you jangled and on edge at odd times throughout the day. Your relationships are receiving a super charge of “don’t fence me in.” You will not take kindly to any perceived threats to your freedom. And rightly so. The Libra Moon makes an air trine harmonic with you, bringing Venus to sweeten your heart with graceful and loving relationships.

Pisces (February 18-March 19)
Some emotional jolts of the electric kind could send you off on an obsessive idea that starts to run away with you. Loosen it up with some deep breathing. Venus in Pisces sees with the eyes of a deep empathy and compassion. She is in your sign until February 7th, strengthening your greatest qualities and bringing you love. Entering into a relationship, or partnership, under this Venus’ guidance means you commit for one reason only--love.
