Aquarius Dawning

At the end of the week, Mercury enters Aquarius chased by the Sun. Even more so than last year’s holiday season, this is a time of giving. The needs of humanity are not mysterious. Because it’s so easy to see how to help, help is freely given. Venus angles Saturn and then Pluto to blow off the limits of love.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). You’re starting to see that there is no fast way to get there or mysterious process you need to go through. You are willing to work for what you want and so you’ll eventually have it.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You go respectfully into different territory, realizing that the scene was set long before you arrived on it and that it will probably go on long after you leave too.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Managing what you own isn’t easy. One Gemini said, “A man builds a fine house; and now he has a master, and a task for life; he is to furnish, watch, show it, and keep it in repair the rest of his days.” — Ralph Waldo Emerson

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Considering that those who do the opposite of what they believe find it extremely difficult to be happy, or even restful, one way to be happy is simply to do what you believe.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You wish that you could control your thinking, but to some extent it’s too much to ask of yourself right now. The best you can do is be aware of the thoughts drifting through and single out the pleasant ones for further examination.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Just as soon as you think you’re certain about something, another possibility will emerge to challenge that certainty. So stay open, trusting that you’ll manage whatever comes.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You’ve recently set some ambitious goals. Today you’ll be in just the clearheaded mood to organize your efforts, prioritize your responsibilities and make a plan.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). In some religions, the lotus flower is a symbol of non-attachment to the material world. Focusing on this symbol will help you rise above the issue that’s been bothering you.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). If the walls of your kitchen could talk, what would they say? The secrets they know about your eating patterns are a window into how well you’re taking care of yourself these days.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Youth is a gift. Immaturity is a choice. A bit of silly fun will be the perfect remedy for a relationship teetering on dullness. Your charm is amplified by the element of surprise.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). While some chase after fame and fortune, you’re not so sure you want to be noticed for all you do. There’s something to be said for wanting to learn in private and make your mistakes quietly.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Creating is easy for you, but maintaining all of those creations is a lot trickier. You’ll love the challenge of it now. There’s much to order, store, give and throw away.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Jan. 13). Not only do you get what you need this year, but you attain it with style. In February, community groups bring business contacts and feed romance. You may disagree with loved ones in March, but your love is unconditional. Your open mind allows for many moments of deep feeling and beauty. Aries and Pisces adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 5, 39, 1, 2 and 24

FORECAST FOR THE WEEK AHEAD: The song in the musical Hair made the Age of Aquarius seem like a time of dancing and tie dye, but in reality humans helping one another — which is at the root of the Aquarian concept — comes in a far more technical package these days. We live in an age when social networking can be used to organize political movements and microscopic robots have been known to make repairs on a cellular level. More advances along these lines are being worked on somewhere in the world in the days to come. Mercury moves into Aquarius, the sign of the future, humanity, philanthropy and technical advances, at the end of the week. The Sun is close behind.

Also a star player this week is Venus, though she has a funny way of showing it. As she angles Saturn and later Pluto, the changes the fulcrum of romantic relationships. The balance of power may be temporarily upset, and that’s a good thing. It shows us how much we lean on our loved ones and makes us question the appropriateness of those leanings. Would your life be better if you were more self-sufficient? As one old spiritual suggested, “God bless the child that got his own.”

CELEBRITY PROFILES: Whether he’s playing an Elf warrior or Caribbean Pirate, Orlando Bloom knows how to wield a weapon with grace. His Sun, Mercury and Mars in Capricorn lend a self-assured earthiness to his characterizations regardless of which fantasy world they come from. Saturn (the planet of lessons) in Leo (the realm of show business) suggests that Bloom learns best about life through his acting work.
