Your horoscope for January 24 to 30, 2013

Hockey is in full swing now, and so are the stars. Mercury, Saturn, Jupiter, and the sun swap notes preceding and following Saturday’s full moon (8:39 p.m.) in Leo. The result is a mix of realism, discipline, and dedication combined with forward thinking and practical ambition. It’s about judging it right and playing things to your best advantage. It’s also about recognizing what’s immovable and needs to be respected and accepted, and where there is opportunity or leeway. When the right formula or touch is applied, it’s a win-win situation.

Thursday and Friday evenings, the stars are optimal for get-togethers, game-watching, shopping sprees, and pleasure-seeking. Friday morning can be a grind, but the day finishes on the completely opposite note. Friday evening through Saturday dinnertime dishes up the best the full moon has to offer. Go for it while the getting is so good.

Back-to-work Monday may not be as productive as we’d like, but tomorrow’s another day. Idle No More is an apt slogan for the end of Jupiter’s four-month retrograde tour, which occurs on Wednesday (3:37 a.m.). We have been feeling this energy shift for most of January. Stalled or stymied no more, if you haven’t been able to connect the dots, get your message across well enough, move it forward, or step it up, you will find better opportunities to do so now.

March 19 - April 19

On Thursday and Friday, you can do battle with your wants or your wallet, but outside of that you’ll find yourself in good spirits and good company. Saturday’s full moon keeps the conversation, entertainment, and stimulation going strong. Monday could be a write-off, but look to the end of Jupiter retrograde to help you get those derailed wheels back on track.

April 19 - May 20

On Thursday and Friday, ask for help or advice when you need it. Someone who’s been there, done that can set you on the right track. A change of plans or an unexpected piece of information could let you off the hook. In-the-moment delivers it best through Saturday’s full moon. As of Wednesday, Jupiter provides you with more to work with, rather than against.

May 20 - June 20

Outside of Friday morning’s snag, you’ll stay on a roll through Saturday’s full moon. The sun trine Jupiter can bring added luck, opportunity, good news, or something to celebrate, but you don’t need an excuse to enjoy, indulge, or splurge. Once Jupiter ends retrograde on Wednesday, plans and intentions will gain better traction. You’ll make better connections too.

June 20 - July 22

Your attitude, insights, ideas, and people connections are in great working shape on Thursday and Friday. Watch for a sudden breakthrough to occur where it will offer you the most welcome relief or opportunity. The stars continue to keep you on a good build-up curve through the end of the month. As of Wednesday, Jupiter signals better financial and relationship opportunities ahead.

July 22 - August 22

Thursday and Friday, go back over things and have a fresh look or another conversation. Better opportunity, choices, and solutions are right in front of your nose. Try an instant pick or a first date; your luck runs high. A special event or spontaneous get-together keeps your buzz going strong through Saturday’s full moon. Wednesday onward, Jupiter helps you gain even better mileage.

August 22 - September 22

On Thursday or Friday, have the talk or tackle something you’ve been reluctant to face. A fresh angle or an alternate choice could deliver better-than-average results. Advice is worth heeding. On Sunday and Monday, you could face extra dilemmas or push-pull. Don’t over-project or over-analyze. As of Wednesday, Jupiter ends a four-month setup phase. You’ll gain more solid footing from here.

September 22 - October 22

The end of the week takes you over a hump and on to something fresh. You’ll get the maximum out of your conversations, visits, scouting, and shopping missions. Moderation can be lost through Saturday’s full moon, but it’s way more fun that way. You may be somewhat directionless on Monday, but by Wednesday it’s full steam ahead.

October 22 - November 21

Special recognition, a significant contract, or an award appears to be in the works. Saturday’s full moon places you at a career, family, or personal milestone. A new private-life chapter shapes up now too. It’s an ideal time to get a new address, launch a business or project, or renovate. The end of Jupiter retrograde also enhances financial prospects and relationship potentials.

November 21 - December 21

The next few days can move you past a creative block and/or bring more out into the open. An air-clearing or change of scenery might do you good. On Thursday/Friday, seek and you will find. A great time is easy to come by. A
relationship or health matter, a contract, or a marketing mission gains ground thanks to the end of Jupiter retrograde.

December 21 - January 20

The tradeoff is worth it, so don’t hesitate to cancel out, spend more/get more, or reroute yourself. An upgrade, a fresh approach, a job, or a project could be the ticket. Work or working it out can be a cinch Thursday through Saturday. By mid next week, you can resume or complete what you couldn’t get to earlier.

January 20 - February 18

You’re on a great build-up curve through the weekend. Thursday through Saturday, creativity, intuition, synchronicity, and same-page accords are especially well sparked. The next few days could deliver too much of a good thing, but who’s complaining? As of Wednesday, opportunity planet Jupiter favours you even more.

February 18 - March 19

The end of the week could move you past an internal or external block. Past mid next week, your timing can work like a charm. Saturday’s full moon in Leo upgrades your health, vitality, confidence, and effectiveness. Expectations can run high too, but you should find that most plans and ambitions deliver the goods. The more things open up for you, the more your confidence grows.
