Aquarius (January 21st to February 18th)
This week, you may have more opportunities to feel connected to people than you’ve had for a while. This is because Venus, which has appeared to move away from the earth for about 40 days, starts to move forward again on Friday.  This helps to foster a connectivity and creativity within you that you’ve needed for weeks. This will continue throughout the year, as you’ve already started 2014 off with a lot more groove than last year. You can keep your cool most of the time now, even though you may have some spikes of frustration. Last year, you were the firebrand; this year you’re becoming more of the peacemaker. Of course, it’s not always peaceful to make peace, but you’d rather be a part of a world that risks a few battles for peace than sit on your duff and keep your peace.
