Your horoscope for January 17 to 23, 2013
Thursday/Friday brings an eventful week to a productive wrap-up, thanks to Mercury in good dialogue with the sun. This is a right time and place, and a goal-reaching aspect. The moment is as ripe as it’s going to be, and we— just like the hockey players—are ready for it.
Skillful, adept, and under control, Mercury teamed with the sun in Capricorn is a recipe for good planning and organization leading to successful implementation. It brings realism and practicality into perspective. It’s an appropriate time to finish things off, finalize them, or make them official. With singularity of focus aimed squarely at the target, the instigating moon in Aries adds just the right amount of fuel to shove past the walls or blockades. Moving things onto a fresh page in the blink of an eye, Mercury advances into Aquarius late Friday. The sun does the same midday Saturday, just before the puck drops. Mars in Aquarius will continue to keep the buzz going strong. By Saturday evening, the pressure peak has passed and it’s time to relax.
Monday/Tuesday, the communication, creative, and social flows are excellent. Barack Obama’s presidential inauguration should prove to be a smooth-running show. Mercury, Uranus, Jupiter, and the mobilizing Gemini moon keep synchronicity and simpatico at peak, so if you have someone to meet, something to say, or somewhere to go, ride the opportunity wave.
