Every now and then, I like to take a look at my horoscopes and see if any of them make any sense. Particularly...when shown together. There's no better time than at the start of the year. :)
I start at Susan Miller's site, AstrologyZone:
Now that the holidays are behind you, it appears that you'll soon be hitting the road, either for work or a vacation, and the distance appears to be quite far.
This could be taken two ways, since I never get to take a vacation. One--I'm hoping to move. My apartment is taking a moderate dive toward the Projects and I'd rather not be here when it completely makes the splash. Or Two, my career, as I'm just starting it and there's a hell of a lot to do.
Mars has been zooming through Taurus since last July, so it's apparent that you've been moving at the speed of light.
That would explain the exhaustion.
I am particularly enthusiastic this month to see that the Sun and Saturn will work together in what is called in astrology a mutual reception. That happens when two bodies work in a particularly close, buddy-buddy way. This month the Sun will be in the sign that Saturn rules (Capricorn) and Saturn will be in the sign that the Sun naturally rules (Leo). That will make Saturn act just like the Sun and the Sun act like Saturn. That kind of blending and reciprocal help between the two is called a mutual reception, considered a rare and special help.
Not to be cheeky, but...if the Sun acts just like Saturn and Saturn acts just like the Sun...doesn't that mean nothing changes?
These two heavenly bodies - the Sun and Saturn - will create a link between your ninth house of travel, legal matters, publishing, and higher education, and your fourth house of home, family, and general real estate.
But not my fifth house of cooking? Damn...
Looking closer at your chart, it seems that something you put on a back burner during the last quarter of 2005 will heat up again. With Venus out of phase, you will be encouraged to rethink, redesign, and readdress an endeavor or relationship that seems to have come off track or that is being investigated.
That's probably the two books I was editing, Vetta and Sky. I have to go over them again to make sure I'm headed in the right direction. Plus, I'm deeply considering yanking Raven from Cerridwen, as they've now taken more than a month to get back to my question of whether or not they have a clue what's going on with it. And, of course, I'm prepping the Lonnigans to take a stab at Blaze before this month ends.
Publishing projects are covered by your ninth house too, because this ninth house deals with the gathering and disbursement of information. So, with Venus retrograde, you may go back to finish an old writing project that was sidelined, or if it is done, you'll now work through the editing process.
As you get closer to month's end, you will begin to see that your career brings enormously good news, thanks to the new moon that will occur at month's end, January 29. This is a trend that will be more about February than January, for a new moon sets up two weeks of opportunity. If you plant seeds either in the last two days of January or in early February, you will have the ability to change the course of your career for the better, and for an entire year moving forward.
Well, I could live with that, lol.
Alternatively, Saturn's presence in the chart may indicate a very responsible position that will mean long and possibly arduous hours on the job. You've never been one to be afraid of hard work, so you seem ready to say, "Bring it on!"
Why is it that every month I visit this woman, she's telling me more work is headed my way? And that I'll like it?
You'll have to see what comes up and decide when you know all the facts.
Oooh, look! Permission to think for myself! WOW!
One thing seems certain - the job would be prestigious and come with true responsibility, but you will feel some measure of push-pull between home and work. I still feel it's worth considering seriously, no matter what the obstacles. No other point in the year will bring anything this special.
And she gives good news....and takes it away. So, the best point of my year ends this month? That's nice. 11 months of misery here we come?
Astrology.com is a bit more succinct, though I love Susan's detail. They also don't seem to agree with her too much.
The 1st-3rd will reportedly have me tired. Check.
7th-9th will make me out of sorts with the infallible tip, "Figure it out, you old bullfighter, and you'll feel better. "--I'm sure I wouldn't have figured it out without them.
"Look out on the 26th, when you have an insight that could shape your whole year."--Could it be to stop reading horoscopes?
The people you deal with will detect your anxiousness. If things get to be too much for you, back away and do things by yourself. A partnership may take a turn. Don't make a promise, commitment or comment that could cause you grief.
So...in other words...you're cranky, take a pill and isolate yourself so you don't ruin anyone's buzz. Oh, and whatever you do, don't talk to people. Only God knows what you might say!
Take care of any pressing medical problems that you or one of your parents may be suffering from. You may be experiencing emotional turmoil in regard to your mate. This is a great day to spend with family. Do not be surprised if your partner doesn't understand your needs.
Your luckiest events this month will occur on a Tuesday.
So, I'm supposed to handle my medical stuff, but spend time with my family. Hmm, oh, and while I'm spending time with my family, my husband won't understand what I want....which begs the question, WHY would I want to spend time with him? Lucky events are all happening on a Tuesday? Well, there goes today....
And finally, a new site for me, Joylight.com:
You will be dealing with issues on a few fronts and how you use them will be different for each case. This will insure that you are, not only learning patience and right use of resources, but, being flexible and seeing all the options.
So everyone agrees...I'm gonna be busy.
Right now you are feeling like you're caught between a rock and a hard place. Digging in and weathering the storm, like you always do, is not going to get it this time. It will be too physically trying on you. You must be out on the firing line to make sure others' choices don't box you in.
But I have my hole all dug!
And don't get paranoid about how you appear. All things are not what they seem.
You mean I'm going to wake up and realize my ass was all a dream??
The instinct is to overdo all creative action almost to the point of hurting yourself. We know that you're an all or nothing person. Don't go overboard. Career issues finally seem to be leveling off. Where you are is where you are...no deceptions.
Funny, Susan seemed to think Career was about to take off. Who to trust? I'm so confused!!! Oh no! Mr. Bill!!!!
Actually, lol, I plan to just listen to my editor, who mentioned I wouldn't get edits until February, good and wonderful woman that she is. Still, here's crossing my fingers some of this stuff happens.
Here's wishing you all a great new year!
