Page 2 of 2

the marauder? What’s the story of the bears as they attempt to feel at home after someone’s eaten their food, broken their furniture, and unmade their beds. Maybe you can relate, because this week your life might have similar themes to settling back into a sense of your own sense of self and place. With pleasure-seeking Venus teaming up with power-embracing Pluto in Capricorn, you’re pushed to find your own way to self-empowerment through what pleases you, but not until you’ve experienced a surprise from upending Uranus.  

Aquarius (January 21st to February 18th)
You’re stalled, and the Cosmos delivers a boost for you.
The first step to recovery is admitting you need recovery. If you’re willing to be honest about needing to change things up, then the Cosmos could very well meet you more than half way. Someone new could swing into your orbit to shake things up. The only possible problem is that you could have a lot of resistance to this intervention. Maybe this person is so unusual to your usual steez that you attempt to push him or her away at every turn. Well, if the usual were really working for you, you wouldn’t need the unusual in your life right now. So, before you batten down the hatches, pay attention to what’s really shaking down. All of this could be just the thing or person to get you moving forward.
 
Pisces (February 19th to March 20th)  
Don’t let a disappointment rush you into what’s next rather than what’s right. Although it’s trite these days to name disappointments and downturns as “growth opportunities,” it’s still true that wrong turns can eventually lead to the right way. This is particularly true for any challenges and changes you face with building your financial health and wealth. What’s key this week is not to act rashly in order to wash quickly the bad taste of a disappointment out of your life. It’s clear that it’s time to go in a new direction, but you also need new tools, connections and resources to get there. Take your time to identify specifically what things you need, and be patient about collecting them over the next several weeks. You may see that you’ll find something with better prospects to reward your research and patience.
