Aquarius [January 21st to February 18th]
The week could start off a little rocky for you. A chilly standoff between sassy, sensual Venus and crusty ol’ Saturn, your patron planet, could leave you feeling at a crossroads with an important relationship. Of course, astrology gives us a bigger view than just our narrow one, so don’t think that this is only about THAT relationship. It’s also about some fundamental changes that have been brewing in you for awhile, specifically how you negotiate between your high-minded principles with the messiness of people’s petty desires and feelings, including your own. This is what opens the door to genuine compassion. You know, Aquarius, sometimes you have to feel your way through some stuff rather than only standing on principle. I’m not saying you’re wrong, but take a minute to put yourself in the shoes of another to see if you can reach a solution that works from the inside out.
