Rockie Weekly Horoscope January 26-February 1

General Forecast

It’s mainly a Mercury-centered week as the Messenger meets up with idealistic, albeit often delusional, Neptune in people-pleasing Aquarius. More time in the spin cycle? Then the littlest guy of them all, by confronting Saturn, ruler of the entrenched establishment comes up with another round of questions, accusations, rebuffs and, in the end, painful jokes. The full moon on February 1 pitches the humanitarian Aquarius sun against the imperial Leo moon. Another toss up? Your call.

Aries

Aries: Mar. 20 – Apr. 19

Alternative solutions to a career matter pop up this week as your fiery Mars ruler at the top of your chart encourages you to take a well-considered, socially acceptable step forward. Although Rams are usually busy folks, it’s not often that you’re able to be as productive as you could be right now. Look for financial support from an enthusiastic Sagittarius and intelligent advice from a colleague. But put off making your final decision until next Thursday after the Leo full moon in your house of creativity shines more light on the matter.

Taurus
Taurus: Apr. 20 – May 20

Since it happens every year, let’s hope you’re used to, perhaps even looking forward to assuming the role of martyr of the month. While your loving Venus ruler passes through sympathetic Pisces, radiating her highest vibrations (is exalted), you’ll have quite a few opportunities to project the saintliest of saintly images. Whatever you wind up doing for someone else could well come off as an act of supreme sacrifice. Feel free to play the part until Ash Wednesday. Once Venus enters individualistic Aries, you’re apt to become your self-centered self again.

Gemini
Gemini: May 21 – Jun. 20

A lot could be going on this week for Twins who have one ear to the ground. Inspired by your Mercury ruler’s meeting with idealistic Neptune on Friday, you may find your mind wandering through the lofty realm of Aquarius. Reality barges in on Sunday while the Messenger faces restrictive Saturn and something (perhaps that inspirational mindset?) stops working. By Wednesday, when powerful Pluto in your house of allies offers an enticing opportunity, you won’t protest too much if someone else is pulling the strings.

Cancer
Cancer: Jun. 21 – Jul. 22

Details, the fine print, i.e., the little things that mean a lot, need to be examined, especially while discerning Mercury falls under the influence of impressionable, potentially delusional, Neptune this weekend. The saving grace could turn out to be a strong challenge from “face the facts” Saturn in your Leo house of assets and acquisitions. This confrontation occurs a few days before the Leo full moon on 2/1 reveals something else about a money matter that you weren’t aware of. P.S. How pushy (Mars) is your partner or co-worker getting?

Leo

Leo: Jul. 23 – Aug. 22

A little more conversation, a little less hands on action. Verbal Mercury is happy to daydream the weekend away while it’s hanging with Neptune in your marriage house. Good for writing lyrics to the music in your head. But cranky Saturn in Leo may subject anything remotely fanciful to its usual reality check. Midweek, during the Leo full moon period, you may become more emotionally vested than expected and take what you learn about yourself too much to heart. Blame expansive Jupiter for encouraging another round of wretched excess.

Virgo
Virgo: Aug. 23 – Sep. 22

Sweating the small stuff, especially a problematic element of your daily routine, could occupy your mind for most of the week; however, it’s lovable Venus’ entrance into your Pisces marriage house Saturday night that’ll fill your heart. The goddess’ visit is short and sweet—about three weeks—so don’t hesitate to give out hugs and kisses or pay compliments the moment you feel like it. The more goodies you dispense, the more you’ll attract helpful folks to your side and the happier you’ll be. Seems simple enough.

Libra
Libra: Sep. 23 – Oct. 22

With so much planetary activity in your Aquarius house of romance and risk, it’ll be hard to keep you down on the farm after you realize you’d rather be in Vegas. However, taking a chance won’t be that nerve-wracking if you have an experienced buddy by your side. Conveniently enough, cautious Saturn, ensconced in your house of colleagues and club members, can provide a measure of security, especially during the Leo full moon period. And if your affectionate Venus ruler sets you up for a fall, Saturn’s safety net should come in handy.

Scorpio
Scorpio: Oct. 23 – Nov. 21

Fulfill a family or a career obligation? The Leo full moon at the top of your solar chart makes it difficult to do both. However, Mercury’s merger with imaginative Neptune could provide a good enough excuse to placate the family so that you can concentrate instead on furthering your career. Words play a big part in what happens this week; try to be careful not to exaggerate and not to offend. On a happier note: Lovable and loving Venus is in water-sign-friendly Pisces, in your house of romance and recreation for the next three weeks. .

Sagittarius
Sagittarius: Nov. 22 – Dec. 21

Sages born at the beginning of December could benefit more than their brethren from the rewarding trine between the Leo full moon and your bountiful Jupiter ruler, currently at 13 degrees of Sagittarius. This is the first of many gifts bestowed on all the fire signs this year by some of the planets and both “lights,” the moon and the sun. It’s also your good fortune to be the recipient of Jupiter’s bounty as it advances through your sign, although the November born may have already received one of their life-changing blessings.

Capricorn

Capricorn: Dec. 22 – Jan. 20

Push may come to shove as you try to decide which side of a fence you’re on. Wait until the Leo full moon next Thursday focuses more light on the reservations you have about a joint financial matter. Greater insight into your true feelings about this matter might balance the abundance of planetary energy currently in your Aquarius house of personal assets and values. The information passed on when Mercury opposes your Saturn ruler, also in Leo, this weekend should be especially helpful in dealing with some of your fears.

Aquarius
Aquarius: Jan. 21 – Feb. 18

Happy Birthday. While the Aquarius sun forms a positive sextile with generous Jupiter in Sagittarius, there’s no telling just how magnificent, how mind-expanding the gifts you’re getting this week will be. Especially if your Big Day falls close to Ground Hog Day. That’s when the full moon in your Leo marriage house endows all your significant others—past, present and future —with a desire to throw the most glamorous celebration they can imagine. Your input—no holding back—would be greatly appreciated.

Pisces

Some Fish get to play, others report for duty; it all depends on how the Leo full moon cookie crumbles. Nonetheless, whether you’re being royally entertained or you’re doing your gig, everyone should be thrilled by the news that voluptuous, vivacious Venus will be in your sign starting Saturday night. No placement yields such purely romantic emotions, such a fulfilling sense of sacrifice (for a simpatico Pisces, a plus) than the goddess’ annual sojourn through your sign. Enjoy; it ends with Mardi Gras.
