Visible Planets: Morning: Saturn  Evening: Venus and Jupiter


Happy New Year! Another revolution around the Sun and 2008 is history. And what a year it has been! Lots to look forward to and plenty of great opportunities coming up to initiate change. It's all about taking personal responsiblity for our gifts and talents and then utilizing them in unusual, inventive ways – for the benefit of all concerned. We are living in an interconnected, inter-related, interactive Universe where everything we think, feel and do acts as an electromagnetic, evolutionary force of visionary vibration and creative manifestation. Never believe that you have no effect on the outcome. You are the outcome. Good luck and may the Force be with you!


Aries (March21-April21)

The New Year enters on the tail of an early degree Capricorn New Moon, favoring a year of major economic and social reform. This is both a collective and individual trend, filled with unlimited opportunity for self-betterment, high achievement and enhanced prosperity. On the personal level, be aware of hurting others. A clash of tender feelings and impulsive or selfish behaviors could cause wounds. Be kind.


Taurus (April22-May21)

2008 was a year of expanding horizons for the Bull, and 2009 continues and empowers the trend. A new addition to the family, professional promotions and career freedom are themes. The world sees you now as a benevolent ruler, a generous advisor or an enlightened philosopher. Bask in the light, but stay on task when it comes to doing the next right thing. Channel love via creative expressions.


Gemini (May22-June20)

The ongoing personal reformation and redefinition of who you are and what you are doing in life continues. As you put the finishing touches on the new you, recognize the power of an authentic heart. Align feelings with actions and practice living true-to-self honesty and integrity. The New Year promises greater vision, increasing opportunity and expanding horizons. Research foreign travel and dream your reality.


Cancer (June21-July20)

An entire pack of potential partners surround you now. Choose the best of the best and the cream of the crop. Osmosis rules, so stick with winners. You know the difference between success and failure, good and bad, dark and light. The manner in which you perceive and define reality is the first step toward manifesting it. Look beneath the surface and beyond the horizon. Take the high road and walk your talk.


Leo (July21-Aug.20)

Jovial, good-luck planet Jupiter moves in to your solar 7th house of longterm relationships this year, so expect to see an increasing number of people knocking at your door, vying for your time and asking for attention. Many good things will come to you via others over the next twelve months, so remain open and receptive to positive influence via expansive ideas. Just cultivate self-disciple and be realistic.


Virgo (Aug.22-Sept.20)

Saturn wraps up its transit through your sign this year, putting its finishing touches on the re-figured and re-formed you. The last two years have served as a time to come out of denial, face reality and shed the self-imposed burdens of self-importance, self-pity and self-abuse. Your vision has clarified, and you can see the light. Follow the illuminated path of realistic, right action and manifest your dreams.


Libra (Sept.21-Oct.21)

Progress is often slow and it things seem to always take longer and cost more than originally planned. Suck it up and stick to the program, stay on the path and prepare for even more self-discipline and self-awareness in the year to come. You are cleaning up karma, making cosmic amends and doing a lot of spiritual, inner work, so remain strong and be kind. Look for angels, say your prayers and follow your heart.


Scorpio (Oct.22-Nov.21)

Generous Jupiter jumps from Capricorn to Aquarius in 2009, so prepare yourself for the possibility of an expanding family, a more positive self-image and increasing opportunities close to home. As your mind has opened, so has the glittering glow of life. You will come to know the power of self-awareness and the miracles of an open heart. Choose to be with people and friends you admire and respect. Lead by example.


Sagittarius (Nov.21-Dec.20)

2008 was a year of expanded responsibility and increased income for the Archer. You were called upon to do more professionally and motivated to experience more personally. This trend continues in 2009 as you awaken to a global economy and the absolute interconnectedness of humanity. Open your eyes and see your place in the Universe. Tune into the cosmic mind, prepare for travel and explore the galaxy.


Capricorn (Dec.21-Jan.19)

Great good fortune planet Jupiter exits your sign this year and, in its wake, leaves a bounty of beauty and booty floating in your personal pool of opportunity and choice. Recognize real value as you pick and choose. All that glitters is not gold. Be discerning and refrain from grandiosity. Check ego-fueled thinking and work toward calm, self-confident actions and peace-loving behaviors. Enjoy life and fuel the fire.


Aquarius (Jan.20-Feb.19)

Congratulations! You stand on the brink of a glittering, glamorous year, brimming with unlimited possibility and powerful potential. Jovial Jupiter, the Great Benefic, will soon enter your sign and open many multi-faceted doors of expansion and growth. This is a feel-good influence, when life sparkles and opportunity abounds. Just be awake and aware, sober and sincere, so you can grasp the golden ring as it comes flying by.


Pisces (Feb.20-March20)

The revolutionary influence of renegade planet Uranus continues this year for the Fish. Awakening is not always comfortable and gracious; it can be shocking, revolting and upsetting. The good news is that you are more and more authentic, more honest and more vitally alive. Truth is the serum and love is the answer. Remain compassionate, keep your eyes open and listen to your angels. Let go, let God.
