Love will steer the stars

Science is showing us that we are all connected at a very deep and profound level.

The Age of Aquarius gets ramped up this Friday when Mercury shifts into Aquarian thinking, and the Sun follows suit on Saturday.  Our world is a matrix of indivisible interrelationships. 
Mind is a telepathic energy field that transcends fear and perceives only love. 

We’re not alone.  By a new count, 17 billion Earth-size planets inhabit the Milky Way.  The PopClock counts over 7 billion people on earth.  We’re all like quantum particles who, once in contact, retain our connection even when separated.  No matter how far apart, we’re always influencing each other.

♡ Date Night:  Frighten yourself with how vulnerable you can be.  The goddess of love has been traveling with the lord of the underworld for the past week, and now, because she eats of his pomegranate seeds, she succumbs to his seduction.  The power of deepest passion is activated.  You’ll feel a longing to consummate a “fated” union that transforms you, like succumbing to the bite of the vampire.   

The Force of connecting is with you.

Here’s your horoscope for the week of January 13, 2013:
(★ Astrology Wonks see bottom of the page)

Aries ♈ (March 20-April 19)
Expect an event that will challenge you to accept things as they are, not how you thought they were.  This may particularly affect your career.  The fireworks are lit Wednesday morning over breakfast when your intuition catches fire. This is a circuit breaker at best and a nervous overload at worse. You’re in no mood for trial and error as a teaching device!  By the end of the week you’ll feel your brain firing on all cylinders again, getting a boost of scientific curiosity.  Sympathy and trust abound in your heart, perfect for the friendship skies of Aquarius this weekend.  

Taurus (April 20-May 20)
Venus entwined with Pluto is passion that can transform you, like breaking through the chrysalis and pushing away the barriers of a “secure” cocoon.  You’ll never be the same!  And, because your ruling planet Venus is now in your ninth house of the higher mind, you’re a teacher of the Aquarian ideals of love and peace.  Expect to get a broader more objective view of your career toward the end of this week.  

Gemini (May 21-June 20)
Wings for your mind?  Just like the Age of Aquarius song, it’s actually true for you now that Jupiter is aligned with Mars!  You’re guided toward fortunate action because of higher self-confidence and considerable foresight.  The weekend will be particularly lucky and adventurous for you.  But the beginning of this week will greatly intensify your feelings, to the point that you’re not sure where such powerful drives are coming from.  This is a time to see the power of your wanting creates your reality.  Perception is your wish fulfilled.

Cancer (June 21-July 21)
Vulnerable is your watchword this week.  If you act as if everyone can read your mind, there'll be no need to hide.  The good news is, only your loving thoughts are shared.  You can lasso the high flying Aquarian Age ideals and pull sympathy and understanding closer to home and community.  There you’ll have a deeper connection than most to the truths that lie behind hatred and killing.  You’re closer to love’s meaning by your willingness to see all the things that love is not.  

Leo (July 22-August 22)
Let the sunshine in!  To your heart.  Your natural courage adds action to the Aquarian ideals that would otherwise get stuck in an ivory tower. Your partnerships will reap the benefit of your ability to see things in the light of impersonal truths.  You’ll benefit from seeing your relationships through the lens of unbiased, objective reason.  If you need more cooperation from others, you’ll get it this week.  Can you bridge the 18” journey between your head and your heart?

Virgo (August 23-September 22)
Pay attention to any discomfort you feel right now, as it may signal a birth of something uniquely creative and brand new in your life.  Just give yourself, and people close to you, plenty of room to adjust.  Harmony and understanding are Aquarian ideals that you make practical, and apply to your work.  Because you can personalize this energy, and use it on behalf of serving others, it greatly enhances your natural healing abilities. Especially through your hands.  

Libra (September 23-October 22)
Invite God in for hot cocoa and a fireside chat.  The spirit of Aquarius is filling a cup of sympathy that connects you to our shared consciousness.  Intense events during the first half of this week help you understand the destructiveness of duality thinking, us against them, which puts you in the perfect position to use your Libran diplomacy.  The only reason for you to take sides is to empathically understand an opponent's argument, but not to agree with them.  Seeing both sides now is in your destiny.

Scorpio ♏  (October 23-November 21)
As a Scorpio you are used to delving into even the dark side of life, the places others fear to look.  Your unconscious mind is very active, particularly Wednesday.  You may find yourself completely infatuated, fascinated with the newness.  The Moon will be in your seventh house this Friday and Saturday, actualizing the prediction of the Age of Aquarius song.  “Mystic crystal revelations” about relationships will come through your intuitive knowing.  Like finding an oasis in the desert.

Sagittarius (November 22-December 20)
Amped up mental energy begins the end of this week, so start taking notes before you lose track of those hot ideas.   You are the Aquarian voice for no more falsehoods or derisions.  A deeper look at your spiritual ideals will show you proof that miracles have been done through you, letting you replace fear with love.  

Capricorn (December 21-January 19)
The depth of the spiritual transformation you experienced throughout 2012 will be clear to you now.  Your deepest fears have been replaced by love, laughter has replaced tears and abundance replaced loss.  If Tuesday happens to be your birthday, it’s a day to know down to your toes how much you are loved.  You, dear Capricorn, can move a mountain one small stone at a time.  

Aquarius (January 20-February 17)
Your solar power returns this Saturday in spades!  It will feel like “the mind's true liberation” for you.  You’re more open to new experiences and don’t care if your ideas are socially acceptable or not!  Early in this week there may be a few upsets, but you are past the point of justifying attack as an appropriate response personally or globally. Use your universal voice.  You carry the vision of golden living dreams of peace.  

Pisces ♓  (February 18-March 19)
A poetic Moon sails into the calm waters of Pisces on Monday.  You can create poetry or lift off to new spiritual heights in your morning meditation.  The feeling grows all day.  You’ll be doing Jedi mind tricks!  By midweek you’re having trouble keeping up with the new openness in your friendships.  The breath of Aquarius that comes along for the weekend adds to your connections with the Force.  Your mind is impregnated with a longing for peace, that guides your actions.  

Astrology Wonks
The two main events this week are:  1.  Venus conjuncts Pluto in Capricorn Wednesday at 5:28 PM, PST.  2.  Mental Mercury moves into Aquarius Friday at 11:25 PM, and the Sun follows Saturday at 1:51 PM.  See  I Am, “the shift is about to hit the fan.”

Venus has been traveling hand in hand with the lord of the underworld for the past week, seemingly cool headed and in control.  But Wednesday she eats of the pomegranate fruit he offers her, and succumbs to his sexual advances (5:28 PM, PST).  Venus entwined with Pluto is deep, often karmic, sexual passion.

Friday afternoon the journey gets very tense when the Aries Moon squares off with Mercury in Capricorn (4:42 PM, PST).  Very heated feelings get a dose of icewater.  

Saturday the Capricorn Sun packs up his stock options and heads out to survey public opinion from the ivory towers of Aquarius (1:51 PM, PST).  Integrity meets equality.

Date Night’s full story comes Saturday afternoon when the sensuous Taurus Moon opposes a seriously emotional Saturn in Scorpio (3:06 PM, PST), pulling down upon herself some stagnant clinging to old judgements.  But the mood shifts in time for a welcomed seduction, when the Taurus Moon invites Venus in Capricorn over for wine and roses (9:18 PM, PST).
