The Stars This Week: January 7-13, 2013
Commit!

You can achieve a great deal this week if you're willing to put in the effort! Action planet Mars squares taskmaster Saturn on January 7, when working deliberately, but thoroughly brings the most progress. Then, on January 8, love planet Venus enters Capricorn, a transit that prompts you to commit to a person or ambition. Finally, January 11's new Moon in Capricorn starts a brand-new cycle, giving you the boost of energy you need to achieve your goals!

January 7: Mars squares Saturn
This aspect is all about hard work, and you'll definitely need to overcome a few obstacles today. And while you'll want to be realistic about what's indeed possible, you'll make impressive progress if you can simply stay the course. Be grateful for the gains you've already made, and make sure you don't push forward against insurmountable odds. If you can read your environment smartly -- including any and all people you encounter -- you'll know what to do. Seek alternative paths if necessary, and don't hesitate to delay your plans if it's the sensible thing to do.

January 8: Venus enters Capricorn
With the planet of love in this ever-serious sign, you won't want to play any guessing games when it comes to your love life! Capricorn relishes nothing more than a real commitment, and those with staying power will be ready to make one. Romantic evenings and promises of love are wonderful, but this is a placement looking for tangible promises. If you don't feel as if you're getting a fair return on your time, energy, and heart investment, you may want to assess your relationship. If you're single, this is an excellent time to attend events where you can hopefully meet like-minded people. For those already committed, have you thought of renewing your vows? Venus remains in Capricorn until February 1.

January 11: New Moon in Capricorn
What a powerful time to create a new goal -- or even rework an old one! With the communication planet, Mercury, joining the Sun and Moon in ambitious Capricorn, you'll make significant progress if you take time to break down your primary goal into a step-by-step plan. As the Moon gives off increased light between its new and full phases, be sure to put energy into anything you'd like to see grow or become stronger in your life. Then, at the next full Moon (on January 26), you'll have a chance to step back and see how far you've come! Abraham Lincoln famously said, "Determine that the thing can and shall be done, and then we shall find the way." Stated like a true Capricorn!
