The Stars This Week: January 27 - February 2, 2014
A New Beginning!

You get a fresh start this week, beginning with a new Moon in Aquarius on January 30 -- a date that also marks the Chinese New Year and the Year of the Horse! Then, January 31 brings three important planetary events! First, Jupiter opposes Pluto, when you'll be reminded to invest in a self-care program. Then, be sure to turn down the noise so you can hear yourself think once Mercury enters imaginative Pisces. Finally, your relationships get back on track as the love planet, Venus, turns direct in Capricorn.

January 30: New Moon in Aquarius
Get ready for a hardworking year ahead as this new Moon marks the beginning of the Chinese Year of the Horse! And, since Aquarius is a sign that loves teamwork, it's a great time to invite others to help you reach your goals. Make sure you return the favor and invest your energy in group projects that make others' lives better. Spend more time with good friends -- they can help you succeed. As with all new Moons, you now have an opportunity to make a fresh start, so whatever you do, make a strong effort to pursue something, whether it's a goal, job, or relationship!

January 31: Jupiter opposes Pluto
Jupiter, currently retrograde in Cancer, is forming the second of three oppositions to powerful Pluto in ambitious Capricorn. Last August, when these two planets connected for the first time, you needed to find a healthy balance between your personal life and your professional commitments. Have you succeeded? Do you have a comfortable home, nurturing family relationships, and a solid self-care program? Invest in yourself during these next few months. By the time of the third opposition in April, your achievements will have been built on an unshakable foundation!

January 31: Mercury enters Pisces
Your imagination blossoms when the planet of communication enters this sensitive, psychic sign! What do you want most? Use this transit, which lasts until February 12, to focus on your goals. You'll experience the most success if you avoid distractions and spend time simply sitting quietly, writing in your journal, or walking in nature. Daydreams and night dreams hold important information for you, so pay attention! It's time to listen to the whisperings of your soul.

January 31: Venus turns direct
Venus entered Capricorn last November 5, then turned retrograde on December 21, so hopefully you've used these last couple months to review your commitments to others and make positive changes. You may have had to let go of certain people or revise the status of specific relationships; or, perhaps you renewed your vows or reconnected with someone from your past. Now the love planet finally turns direct -- and you are more than ready to move forward! Strengthen your relationship bonds as Venus continues its transit through Capricorn until March 5, 2014.
