The days leading up to New Year's Eve are fairly calm, but as soon as Mars makes its presence felt early Sunday morning, it's hellzapopin' time. Mystical Neptune also figures into the planetary configuration, so folks with spiritual aspirations may find themselves both high and highly energized. Early Tuesday, a favorable sextile between the paternal Capricorn sun and populist Uranus suggests that something new is on the way. Early Wednesday the maternal Cancer full moon fills us with a tender concern for less fortunate others. Then loving Venus skips over to quirky Aquarius and, once again when it comes to romance, anything goes. Happy New Year.
Aries: Mar. 20 - Apr. 19
Rambunctious Rams might not have an angelic bone in their well-toned bodies, but this New Year's Eve, even they could attain heavenly heights. Whenever your Mars ruler finds favor with spiritual, musical Neptune, you can't help but get high, very high. You also can't help but succumb, more easily than usual, to Neptune's power to dissolve men's minds. Remember this as you take another toke, another sip of the elixir of the gods. Don't con yourself into thinking that you'll keep your resolutions for the coming year, not while Mars is still prancing through hot-to-trot Sagittarius.
Taurus: Apr. 20 - May 20
The sensual Taurus moon should smooth your way into a pleasurable and relaxed weekend; however, come New Year's Eve itself, a Bull could be just as mobile and chatty as any wired Gemini. That same nervous energy can affect the general atmosphere during the first full moon of 2007; even though it takes place in Cancer, a sign that usually brings you comfort and joy. What could also throw you off stride is your Venus ruler departing stable, earthbound Capricorn for three weeks facing the wild winds of change that blow through Aquarius.
Gemini: May 21 - Jun. 20
Who would have guessed that in the opening week of 2007 the main thing on your mind would be money? Consider this a gift from the full moon in your Cancer house of assets and values: a clear picture of your financial future and perhaps a glimpse of the person who'll play a major part in it. This is the year the Twins attract allies who can affect your fortunes in a big way. Meanwhile, while your perceptive Mercury ruler tip-toes through status-conscious Capricorn, be especially cordial to someone who has earned your respect.
Cancer: Jun. 21 - Jul. 22
If you think it's taking too long to recover from the endless holiday celebrations, perhaps you're blaming the wrong phenomenon. Maybe it's not the mother of all New Year hangovers, maybe it's the Cancer full moon that is keeping you from returning to a workaday consciousness. For a Moon Child, few times in the astrological year are as holy or as mystifying as when Luna, your ruling orb, perfects its polarity with the winter sun. This event occurs early Wednesday morning, but you might be under its liberating spell as early as Tuesday.
Leo: Jul. 23 - Aug. 22
Some Lions will actually undertake a new workout routine, others may discover an unexplored outlet for their talents. When your life-sustaining sun ruler forms a positive sextile relationship to innovative Uranus on the 2nd, there's no telling what activity will capture your fancy. You can solidify your commitment during the very respectable Capricorn-Cancer full moon the next day. And if you seem more attached to family than usual, attribute that feeling to the sun's transit through Capricorn, the entrenched earth sign that represents the father figure.
Virgo: Aug. 23 - Sep. 22
Between the uplifting vibes on New Year's Eve and the Day itself and the comfy, cozy feelings generated by the Cancer full moon on Wednesday, there's precious little reason to do more this week than hang out at home, surrounded by familiar music and your favorite foods. The right people would be a plus, but try to avoid the kooks. With the sun and your Mercury ruler in traditional Capricorn, a compatible earth sign that also appreciates excellent organization, well-made products and incidental knowledge, you'll find plenty to please you.
Libra: Sep. 23 - Oct. 22
The first full moon of the new year occurs on the 3rd in your Cancer midheaven, the place where your reputation is made. Protect it. Try not to disgrace yourself by adopting the rebellious attitude your Venus ruler assumes as it makes the transition out of respectable Capricorn into barrier-breaking Aquarius. While Librans respond well to intelligent and sociable Aquarius vibes, that homey, maternal Cancer moon could strike emotional chords you'd rather ignore. However, if there's a career matter that needs attending to, now is the time to do it. Otherwise wait until summer.
Scorpio: Oct. 23 - Nov. 21
As long as imaginative Neptune has already captivated your Mars co-ruler, you may as well keep that magical mindset going throughout the New Year weekend. Pageantry and performance can provoke a greater response this year because Mars in Sagittarius is exerting a stronger influence on your value system than usual. In another two years, you might react in a similar manner to Christmas, but not to the kitschy wonders of the Rose Bowl parade. Adding to this sudden surge of emotionalism is the tender-hearted Cancer full moon. Enjoy.1 | 2 | All | Next Page >>
