Aquarius [January 21st to February 18th]
#MeTime: FYI, you being the water bearer does not mean that you are anybody’s waterboy or watergirl. One of the earliest traces of the phrase “water bearer” harks back to the Egyptian Nile. Like the Nile, you’re a resource for others, not someone who gets caught up in running errands or a bunch of distractions. This could happen a lot this month.
#Heartstrings: When Venus roars into Leo on the 6th, it’ll mark a month of coping more with the demands and needs of others than your own. Eventually, though, you’ll find balance and realize that keeping the peace is not about taking yourself out of the equation. Squeaky wheels may indeed get the oil, but, um, don’t forget you carry the oil.
#MoneyMoves: If you have to make any sudden changes, think more about doing that toward the 29th or 30th. This month is, ultimately, a kind of set up month for you to reclaim a little more of your power after recognizing how you may have given it away. Next month is when you’re more prepared to break away.
