The Stars This Week: January 2-8, 2012

The Stars This Week: January 2-8, 2012
Compromise!

This week includes a challenging aspect, Venus quincunx Mars, on January 6, when you'll need to negotiate for what you want. Fortunately, you'll get some help formulating a plan once Mercury enters clear-thinking Capricorn on January 7. Finally, the full Moon in sensitive Cancer on January 8 brings plenty of emotions that will need to be sorted out over the next two weeks.

January 6: Venus quincunx Mars
As Venus in social Aquarius tangles with Mars in analytical Virgo, your relationships can become confusing or problematic. Differing needs and desires force you to assess what you want -- and don't want -- and while compromise is possible, each person will need to make necessary adjustments. You may not be able to get everything you want, but you can negotiate for what's most important to you.

January 7: Mercury enters Capricorn
What do you want to achieve? What are your most cherished goals? As Mercury leaves philosophical Sagittarius and enters the practical Earth sign of Capricorn, your mind naturally turns to more serious subjects. Instead of endlessly speculating the pros and cons of a situation, it's now time to nail down some specifics! Share your thoughts and ideas with trustworthy people who can help you pull together a step-by-step plan. Your work and career goals can get a boost now as you turn your thoughts to advancing yourself in those particular areas.

January 8: Full Moon in Cancer
What do you need to feel more comfortable and secure? Since Cancer is the sign that nurtures and protects, and because full Moons heighten emotions, this is an ideal time to tend to personal needs as well as family concerns. The Sun is in Capricorn, Cancer's opposite sign, reminding you to make sure you maintain a healthy balance between your career and home life. Use this time to tune into your feelings: In the days following the full Moon, but before the next new Moon, be sure to sketch out any changes that will make you feel more comfortable.
