People born this week often feel like they are different from others – so different that they sometimes feel like social misfits. Because they dance to the beat of a different drum, they seldom are in tune with the rest of the world. The Aquarian is fixed and finds change to be a challenge. Even though they often try and change and be like other people, they really like being totally different.
They are the folks who join an organization and call for change and then leave because of the change.
Aquarians like people and enjoy causes where they can help people. They never like following the crowd. They like to dress differently, probably sport tattoos and really like being different.
This fixed, air sign is intellectual. They think about life more than they become emotional about it.
People born this week: Bridget Fonda, January 27, 1964; Nick Carter, January 28, 1980; Oprah Winfrey, January 29, 1954; Vanessa Redgrave, January 30, 1937; Minnie Driver, January 31, 1971; Lisa Marie Presley, February 1, 1968; Christy Brinkley, February 2, 1954.
Just in case you follow the full moon, the next one is on Tuesday, Feb. 7 at 4:54 p.m., and it will be in Leo. Usually when the moon is full in Leo you can be sure you will know it emotionally in your life. So get your busy work out of the way in the next two weeks and you will avoid the emotional nonsense that often happens before the full moon.
The Chinese Year of the Dragon started on Monday, so, for what is worth, appreciate the dragon.
The best day this week will be Tuesday when the moon is in Taurus along with Jupiter and the moon will trine both Venus and Mars. That makes it a good day to meet some new and important people, so plan to be on the scene on Tuesday afternoon and night.
Aries (March 21 to April 20) If you feel like you are in over your head it might be possible that you are. Find yourself a new attitude and apply it to a relationship. If you are able to make this happen you will be in a delightful situation that will bring joy to your heart and a smile to your face.
Taurus (April 21 to May 20) There is no need to compromise now; just back off, cool off and then move forward. Life will work out to your benefit if you can just let it happen. You don’t need to control happenings this week. If you just have faith, do your share and then drop it and move on.
Gemini (May 21 to June 20) With your quick mind going at full speed this week, try to avoid overanalyzing your life. With Mars now retrograde and making dramatic aspects to your sun you are set for some surprises. Try to relax and let life happen around you. It will work for your benefit.
Cancer (June 21 to July 20) Things are not always as they seem, so stop trying to figure the entire situation out and you will feel much less stressed. Once you let go of the stress you manufacture you will find your bliss. There is no greater pleasure than winning the game. Let it happen.
Leo (July 21 to August 20) Starting a new journey begins with the first step. We are in a new moon period, so it is time to take a step. You will feel much better once the step is taken and you will meet new people on the journey. Now it is time to have faith and move. The new experience will be the best.
Virgo (August 21 to September 20) Life is lively now and will continue if you make a few moves in a new direction. You will be a different person when you come out of this excitement, so pull yourself together and make sure you keep the new you intact. A new lover could also be right around the corner.
Libra (September 21 to October 20) It is the new moon time so if you have a few ideas that have been simmering in your mind the time has come to act. Be as sincere as possible when starting your new venture and work hard. Using those ingredients you will bring awesome success. A new pal could be a great help.
Scorpio (October 21 to November 20) You need an action plan and now is the time to start it. Get a few trusted pals together and make some moves. Say as little as possible but say something. You can no longer afford to sit back and watch, so use your pent up energy and take on more responsibility. You will be glad you did.
Sagittarius (November 21 to December 20) Taking on a new project is just what you need. And if you do it well you can be sure it will lead you into something bigger and better than you ever dreamed would happen. Listen to your heart and ignore the negative around you. It is time to be your very best.
Capricorn (December 21 to January 20) Be as kind and gracious as possible and it will pay off tenfold. The more you can settle past scores the bigger and better your future will be. A powerful friend can give you a great boost if you just allow it, so look where the power is and settle for nothing less. Great times are coming up.
Aquarius (January 21 to February 20) You can feel the change all around you and you have little or no control of it. The best way to handle life is to flow with it and understand it is for your good. A friend can be extremely helpful if you just let it happen. Look for some new faces that will be important in the future.
Pisces (February 21 to March 20) Learn to be as good as you can be and take some of your creative ideas and run with them. Your success will be far beyond your expectations if you only push yourself to get there. An old friend will gladly help you explore. Just keep your deepest ideas to yourself. Life is moving.
