Jan. 23 – Jan. 29, 2008

Aquarius The Waterbearer:

(Jan. 19 -- Feb. 18)

Mercury is turning retrograde in Aquarius and will be more likely to affect your daily affairs than many of the other signs. You may no sooner decide on one thing than you switch to another. Be aware you are trying on answers, just as one tries on clothes.

For All Signs: Mercury will be turning retrograde precisely on the 28th. Delays and revisions of schedule are likely with lots of "hurry up and wait." Mercury always deals in communications. This particular retrograde might correlate with rumors of viruses and other frightening developments. Public reaction, even if the threat is small, can snarl information everywhere. Remember that new information which develops during a Mercury retrograde is usually false or misleading.

Aries: You are likely to find yourself thinking a lot about old friends and may want to get in touch with one or two of them. This is a time for nostalgia and reminiscence. Others are thinking about you, too, but you are a sign with more initiative than many, so pick up the telephone.

Taurus: The dramatic version of your cosmic symbols reads thus: Early in the week you will come to a finale within a relationship. You are moving on to a bigger world, one which is not so possessive. You need your time and energy to explore new areas of creativity, and yes, maybe a different "lover."

Gemini: Your ruling planet is changing directions in the territory which deals with education, publishing, travel, public speaking, the law and philosophy. Therefore any of these activities are subject to shifts or sudden reversals due to lack of decision. Maybe the right solution just is not available yet.

Cancer: Mercury is retrograding in the territory of taxes, debt, inheritance and joint resources. Perhaps you are rummaging through the archives for lost data and/or receipts. Don't worry. Whenever a piece of paper has gone missing during a Mercury retrograde, it will always turn up again by the next change of direction (Feb. 18).

Leo: You have few new aspects this week. This suggests that you are probably living out the usual routine. There are two minor problematic situations toward the end of the week that will cause you to have to wait, or at least slow your progress.

Virgo: This Mercury retrograde experience occurs in the territory of health, co-workers, tenants, employees and pets. You may find it hard to move forward with your diet and exercise program. If health difficulties develop, consider "alternative" solutions.

Libra: During this period you are closing a long chapter of your life experience. It is tied to that which you started in 1995-96. Now that you have the knowledge, it is time to find new ways to convey it to others. But first you will want to reflect and let the results stir around in your heart.

Scorpio: The sweet closure of a relationship will likely cause you to reminisce about "home," wherever that is for you. Perhaps a trip is needed. Maybe you can revisit by making phone calls and talking intimately with those you love. You are working through an issue of what you want home to be.

Sagittarius: You know times are changing for you. This month you are coming closer to finishing something or someone that was once deeply important to you. Compelling though it was, the story is arriving at its finale. One last conversation or connection and you will move beyond that trance.

Capricorn: Venus enters your sign this week and will be traveling "with you" through much of February. Her presence gives you an air of poise and people will simply like how you look. She brings positive news in business, legal affairs, or educational interests.

Pisces: Outer world activities are quiet. Memories from your life history may surface for examination at this time. Old friends or acquaintances who return for a short time could be the trigger for this life review. It is possible you may have a greater-than-normal need to reflect, to write and otherwise give attention to your inner self.
