The Stars This Week: January 28 - February 3, 2013
New Territory!

This is a week of mixed messages. On January 30, Jupiter turns direct in Gemini, when ideas you've been working on are ready to move forward. However, the Sun squares Saturn that same day, injecting a note of caution. When Mars enters Pisces on February 1, you're ready to start something new. Also on February 1, Venus enters Aquarius, a transit that shows you're ready to breathe new life into your relationships.

January 30: Jupiter turns direct
Jupiter in Gemini has been generating a ton of ideas in recent months, so it may seem as if everyone has something to say! Figuring out what's true, exaggerated, or downright false has been an important task throughout Jupiter's nearly four-month retrograde period. Some of your ideas and projects have been on hold as you've hopefully spent time redefining them; others have simply been let go. You may have even experienced a major lifestyle change recently. Now, as this big planet turns direct, you're ready to move forward with everything you've learned.

January 30: The Sun squares Saturn
As the Sun squares the taskmaster planet, it's time to assess your plans to ensure they're solid. Take care of loose ends; double-check your facts. Don't waste your energy by investing in people or projects no longer adding value to your life. Saturn offers a reality check, prompting you to weigh your responsibilities so you can weed out whatever isn't working as you shore up what's most important to you. If you keep the long-term view foremost in your mind, you'll make good decisions.

February 1: Mars enters Pisces
Mars, planet of action and desire, sets a new course now as it energizes the zodiac's most imaginative and spiritual sign, Pisces. This is a wonderful placement for pursuing your dreams and goals ... just don't count on logic or clarity to offer assistance! Rather, you'll have to trust your intuition. Mars loves activity, and in this Water sign, you'll do best if you simply go with the flow and, above all, remain flexible so you can adapt to changing circumstances. Mars will remain in Pisces until March 12, so if you're familiar with your birth chart, check the areas of your life Mars is activating during the next six or so weeks, then invest appropriately.

February 1: Venus enters Aquarius
We fall in love for all kinds of reasons, but we usually choose our friends because of shared values. Venus is the planet of love, and Aquarius is the sign of friendship, so when the planet that rules relationships enters the sign that rules friendships, your feelings for a friend may develop into something more. Or, perhaps your friendship intensifies with someone you love. If you're single and want to find your soul mate, go to events and parties where you'll meet like-minded people. If you're in a committed relationship, find an activity that you both like -- and watch your friendship deepen!
