Weekly Horoscope Sunday, January 12 to Saturday, January 18, 2020

All Signs

Did you know that each sign has rulership over different parts of the body? Capricorn rules the knees; and its ruler Saturn rules the teeth, hair and the skeleton. In the last year, more people have had trouble with their joints, especially their knees, plus problems with their teeth. And bad hair days? Don’t even go there! This is because the Sun, Mercury, Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto are all in Capricorn! This week Mercury will leave Capricorn and move into Aquarius, which will help lighten things. (Do you think instead of getting your teeth whitened, it’s easier to get a tan?) Personally, since the holidays, my dental plan has been chewing on the other side.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

This heavy emphasis of planets in Capricorn is a mixed blessing for your sign. Because it occurs at the top of your chart, it emboldens you to go after what you want and achieve success, in your professional career or in any walk of life where you interact with society or create an impression on others. This influence is absolutely beneficial for you! Having said that, this same heavy influence is technically at odds with your Aries Sun, which will definitely encourage problems with your bones and your teeth. Stiff joints are par for the course for many of you right now. Because this is a great time to travel – I suggest you explore somewhere warm, sunny and dry! Why not?

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Although this strong emphasis in Capricorn can encourage problems with teeth and bones for your sign, nevertheless, because Capricorn is in your fellow Earth sign, it is basically very supportive to you. This means you actually have more vigour, determination and strength to accomplish whatever it is you want to do. One thing you want to do is travel and explore the world! You also want to get further education and training to learn something useful. Many of you can likewise act on opportunities in publishing, the media, medicine and the law. This month is an excellent time to talk to bosses and VIPs. Maybe you need a raise?

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Like other signs, you too, will feel increased stress in your skeletal structure, joints or anything to do with your teeth, especially in the last year. You won’t have to rely on my dental plan (chewing on the other side) because you can count on financial and practical support from others, as well as indirectly from your partner. As Mercury changes signs this week, you will encounter more chances to travel, learn, study and explore opportunities in publishing and the media. This is actually a good time to do this because Venus is at the top of your chart paving the way for relations with bosses, parents and VIPs. They like you! In fact, for some of you – a romance with a boss could begin.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

All this planetary focus in Capricorn has been challenging for you. Not only has it been challenging for your bones, joints and skeletal structure as well as your teeth in the last year, it’s been challenging for marriages and close partnerships. The thing to keep in mind about Saturn is that it tends to make things look worse than they are. Keep things in perspective. Right now, Venus brings you opportunities to travel and explore romance with someone “different.” In addition, you’re gung ho to work hard because Mars is travelling through your House of Employment. “Hi ho, hi ho, off to work I go!” (Or more appropriately – “I owe, I owe, off to work I go!”)

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

For Leo, this heavy focus on Capricorn is a mixed bag! It has been a great boon to you because it has made it easier for you to work hard and accomplish a lot in the last year. Nevertheless, like many others, you might have encountered problems with your hair, and problems with your teeth and your joints (especially your knees) because this Capricorn influence is taking place in your House of Health. Oh yes. What the large print giveth, the small print taketh away. Fortunately, money from other sources will benefit you now. Likewise, your sex drive is amped and intimacy is affectionate.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Like Taurus, you have benefited from this strong planetary influence in Capricorn because for the most part, it has been supportive to you. It will continue to support you both in terms of your career as well as recreation and playful diversions, especially in areas related to the hospitality industry, the entertainment world, vacations and anything you do for fun and pleasure. Venus is opposite your sign now, which will sweeten relations with partners and close friends. In fact, expect a surprise this week because you might meet someone “different.” (You will welcome any diversion to escape the increased chaos at home.)

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

This strong planetary influence in Capricorn is not easy for you. Almost definitely, most of you have suffered with teeth problems and joint problems in the last year. (Especially the knees.) Even your hair might have been a source of frustration. Aaggh! Nevertheless, the best way to use this energy is to make home improvements and explore real-estate opportunities, especially this year. Likewise, you can do positive things to solidify family bonds and be supportive to family members. Fortunately, Venus will attract the help of coworkers to you. And with Mars in your House of Communications, you can talk your way into and out of anything! Not too shabby.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

This continues to be a fast-paced, busy time for you to take short trips, interact with siblings and daily contacts plus enjoy stimulating diversions. It’s also a great time to take courses and learn something new. In fact, many of you are writing and reading more than usual. Despite the demands, you are also working hard to boost your income and yet – in an almost baffling way – you’re spending time partying and enjoying vacations! This means you are living your life with all six burners turned on high. Learn to pace yourself because no one has infinite energy. Protect your health and take time to restore yourself. Meanwhile, romance swoons dizzily along.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Because your ruler is lucky, moneybags Jupiter, by nature, you look for opportunities to make money and expand your world. It’s who you are. Lately, you are keen to boost your income because at a deeper level, you can see that this is possible this year. And it is! Something will increase your wealth whether it is a better salary or money from a sale or an inheritance — but it will be something. You can count on it. Keep hustling because with Mars in your sign now, you have lots of energy to explore many avenues. Meanwhile, Venus encourages entertaining at home as well as redecorating and making your digs more attractive. It’s all good!

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Despite this strong influence of planetary activity in your sign, this week you will feel more serious about life. (Remember to smile in your bathroom mirror.) The reason you’re more serious is you will be giving more thought to your duties and responsibilities. Naturally, this serious influence will in turn, tend to make it more difficult to relate to people, in part, because you feel more isolated or alone. Furthermore, you will feel lower energy. Nevertheless, you will do very well at organizing and planning and creating form and order in your life because this week, the Sun is in your sign lined up with your ruler Saturn. It’s a bit like going to the principal’s office or having to account for yourself with the boss. But you can handle this.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

This week Mercury moves into your sign, which means the next few weeks are a great time for you to express your point of view to others. This is because you will put a great deal of yourself into whatever it is you have to say. Ironically, at the same time, your ability to examine yourself with greater objectivity and detachment is superb. (A wonderful combo of influences.) Meanwhile, act on your strong urge to get out and travel, probably for short trips. You will enjoy talking to others and sharing your ideas because you feel mentally alert and confident. And why not? You’re the brainiac of the zodiac! (You were the first to realize that the answer to everything in the universe was 42.)

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

For the most part, this strong planetary activity in Capricorn has been a blessing for you but it has kept you busy! Basically, it has magnified your interactions with friends and groups and made you feel indispensable to others. People want your opinions. People want to talk to you. They will seek out your ideas as well as your company. Now with Venus in your sign, you are even more charming and diplomatic than usual, which means everyone loves you even more! (It’s almost pathetic.) As Mercury changes signs this week, it will enable you to do research and discover answers to old questions or solutions to old problems. Fortunately, with Mars at the top of your chart boosting your ambition – you’re up for it. “The game, Mrs. Hudson, is on!”

Weekly Horoscope by Georgia Nicols

All Signs

This week many people will encounter power struggles with others. This is because fiery Mars is at odds with big daddy Pluto. The best way to use this energy is to change the world around you to better suit your needs and desires. However, what is more likely, is that people will have fierce power struggles and disagreements. This is because Mars brings much energy into the picture, while Pluto is entrenched in a passionate stance. Note: This nasty little standoff can often end up in defeat! (Ouch.) In fact, defeat is almost assured if you are ruthless or underhanded. This week nice guys do not finish last. They finish first! (And they dress quickly, too.)

Aries (March 21-April 19)

This is an intense week. The downside is that maddening, goofy errors will dog your steps regarding banking details or anything to do with inheritances and shared property. The upside is that you can finish matters that have been dragging on for a while. Start looking for ways to travel for pleasure because for sure you will have this opportunity in the next few weeks. Meanwhile, be patient with partners and close friends, especially at the beginning of the week because you might encounter a standoff like the Gunfight at the O.K. Corral. Lighten up in your dealings with others. Be tolerant and patient. Cope as best you can. If your bread is stale – make toast.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Old friends, ex-spouses and ex-partners are back on the scene. This might be the reason that you are at odds with someone at work. At the beginning of the week, you will encounter difficulties with someone, probably on the job; however, these obstacles might also relate to a pet or something to do with your health. Either way it’s a power struggle – and you don’t need this. Fortunately, you’re entering a lovely window of a few weeks that blesses you financially. Expect gifts, goodies and favours from others to come your way! In addition, during the next few weeks, you have an advantage if you need to borrow money or get a loan or mortgage from a bank. Ka-ching!

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

This is a tricky week ahead. Many of you are at odds with a lover or a romantic partner. You might be fighting. Fortunately, this kind of situation will blow hot and cold because while Mars makes you fight, Venus will patch things up and create smooth relations for you. It’s a real Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde scene! Meanwhile, retrograde Mercury will create errors, mixed-up communications, equipment breakdowns and missed appointments at work. Knowing this ahead of time, give yourself extra time this week so that you have some wiggle room to cope with the unexpected. Be smart!

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

This is a fun-loving, playful time! (If you’re lucky, you are not reading this column because you’re off somewhere on vacation!) Meanwhile, old flames are back in the picture for some. Many of you are also dealing with old issues regarding your kids. Your challenge at the beginning of this week will be arguments at home. Something will disrupt your home routine that’s for sure. Increased chaos and difficulties dealing with your day-to-day world will require patience on your part. Don’t let this spill over into tension with family members. Fortunately, things at work are smooth. Look for ways to make your workstation more attractive. Expect praise and maybe a raise.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

This is the perfect week to tackle repair projects you’ve been meaning to get to at home because you will finish these tasks easily. (Why didn’t I do this earlier?) Meanwhile, social occasions, dates, movies, musical performances and fun outings, especially with kids, will please you. Your challenge will be the fact that you’re at odds with someone this week. A power struggle with a sibling, relative or neighbour will be your challenge. You know what you want to achieve; however, someone will block you. Ideally, channel this same energy into changing your daily environment in a creative way that pleases you. This is your winning choice.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

This is a busy, fast-paced time. Appointments, meetings, tasks, errands plus short trips and increased reading and writing give you a busy agenda. Your challenge is even though you have this busy agenda, you also have to deal with transportation delays, misplaced paperwork, confused communications and problems with how you communicate. It’s a drag. On top of this, a power struggle about finances and money is taking place. Make sure you are on the up and up because anything that is ruthless or underhanded will backfire. Continue with plans to entertain at home and make where you live more attractive. (“Hey, I like what you did with the place!”)

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Many of you are involved in an old financial issue perhaps regarding a previous purchase, or previous job or a way that you earned money or something to do with your current earnings. Hopefully, this will be resolved quickly because Mercury retrograde can help you. Meanwhile, your ability to schmooze and charm others is tops because Venus is travelling through your House of Communications. Nevertheless, fiery Mars is in your sign at odds with Pluto, which means you have power struggles with someone. This might be someone at home or in the family; but it could be anyone. Be careful because the more you push, the greater you will increase their opposition to you. (You catch more flies with honey than with vinegar.)

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

This continues to be a wonderful time for you because the Sun is in your sign boosting your energy and attracting favourable situations and people to you. Since this happens only once a year, be grateful for this advantage. Admittedly, Mercury is retrograde in your sign creating delays and goofy mistakes. (Groan.) Such is life. But hey, Venus will attract money to you! It will also encourage you to spend money on beautiful things for yourself and loved ones. The thing to watch out for this week is something going on behind the scenes that creates power struggles or obstacles for you. Best to put your cards on the table and be open about whatever troubles you. Be upfront, forthright and clear.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

This continues to be the ideal time to work alone or behind the scenes. In other words, take a back seat in the busy insanity of everything around you and start to identify and define goals for your new year ahead. You are a future oriented sign and when you have goals that you are working towards, you feel better. Ironically, sometimes it doesn’t matter if your goals are achieved but identifying goals still makes a valuable contribution in your life. Eisenhower once said, “In preparing for battle I always found that plans are useless but planning is indispensable.” The process makes you consider many parameters in your life. Avoid a nasty standoff with a friend or a member of a group. Be your charming breezy, self.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Do yourself a favour and steer clear of nasty confrontations with parents, bosses, teachers and the police, especially at the beginning of the week. You won’t win if you wade into an argument. You will lose and you will regret it. Timing is everything. You have to know when to hold and when to fold. Meanwhile, you have been in contact with friends from the past and perhaps members of groups you haven’t seen for a while. Make the most of this. Some of you are also involved in a secret love affair. Others will welcome moments of solitude in beautiful surroundings so that you can catch your breath and make life easier and kinder.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

You care about the environment and social issues. any of you are the first to start a petition or urge others to sign one. This week you might get carried away and become involved in an argument about politics, racial issues or religious matters. Don’t do this. Not this week. Stand back and don’t get involved in contentious subjects because the result will be nasty. This is one of those situations where you have to be prudent in order to live to fight another day. Timing is everything. Small wonder you are encountering bosses and authority figures (including parents) you haven’t seen for a while. The good news is you will enjoy the warmth of friends, especially creative, artistic people. Go with what works.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Travel plans and anything that you do to expand your experience of life excites you now! This is because you’re eager to grow, learn and explore new avenues! It’s a wonderful time to take a course or go back to school. Meanwhile, you create a fabulous impression on bosses, parents, teachers and VIPs. (They think you walk on water.) Obviously, with this great press, now is the time to make your pitch or ask for a favour or do what you can to advance your agenda. Having said this, there is a spot of trouble in paradise. Disputes about shared property, inheritances, or something that you own jointly with others will arise and be nasty. Avoid these if you can, especially at the beginning of the week.
