Venus the goddess blazes in Sagittarius as the year begins. Communications, dealings with the public, a diversity of contacts and a vigorous cycle of interactions or exchanges will be part and parcel of your life in the coming year. For the singles, romantic links may come through chance encounters or through the connections of business or your dealings with ‘day to day’ associates, members of the public or people that are part of your routines of travel or communication. Someone well-travelled, qualified or with overseas links may feature. Food, laughter or social activity may be a meeting ground. Those in a relationship will be busy with business or the rich variety of dealings or interaction with people at large. In fact, work or the demand of your interests or involvements may take you away from your loved one at times.
Saturn in Virgo is in tension with Venus as the year begins. There may
be delays or separations that affect close personal relations. Some will
focus on work or interaction, having little time for romance. Others
will carry a secret sorrow or show a different kind of face in private
and in public. For some, circumstances you cannot prevent or overcome
may separate you from a loved one. Others may decide on a separation and
a new beginning. Partnership will not be an easy arena this year so
give a deal of thought to your levels of commitment or interest. While
Venus and Saturn struggle in this manner, remember Jupiter will be in
Capricorn, bringing optimism and expansive feelings to the domicile.
‘Hang on to what you have and build on it’ is the lesson.
Be careful with your money this year. If you have to recover from past
problems, make sure you do so before you put anything else at risk. This
is not a year for the wild foray or the sudden impulse. They’re likely
to lead you up the garden path. A simple savings plan will turn out to
be better than the best ‘high return’ investment you can find. The hopes
of dreams of finance will be all too easily broken on the wheel of
contraction that will touch the markets and the marker points of the
larger fiscal picture. Be safe and you won’t be sorry.
There may be
secret or hidden demands or problems through others that will cost you
financially. Don’t entrust your capital without the fullest
investigation of credentials and integrity. Put money into what’s safe
and solid. For some, the housing market will hold the key. For others,
you may step back and revise your financial strategies wholesale,
looking for new avenues to work through.
As the year begins, you will have to watch for difficulty with
communications or travel, especially with overseas links. Mars is
retrograde in Gemini, clashing with Pluto, the lord of the underworld.
There will be tough negotiations and testing communications or news.
Arguments or ill feeling will flare up all too quickly. For some, there
will be clashes over travel schedules or plans. For others, legal
matters will test you. This is not a favourable time for litigation.
There may be problems in contacts with in-laws. You may find yourself at
odds with someone of foreign extraction. There may be problems with
study or dealing with academics or academia. Clashes with males
especially will feature.
If you’re travelling overseas, take care with vehicles, communications
equipment and language difficulties. You may catch the rough edge
someone of someone’s anger or frustration.There will be delays for
yourself or others in travelling or returning from overseas. Someone
from your past may reappear ‘out of the blue’. You should strenuously
avoid antics involving iron, sharp edges, blunt objects, firearms,
machinery or verbal exchanges. If you’re travelling on New Year’s Eve or
News Year’s Day, put safety first. Mars moves forward on Jan 30th.
