Onward, fast and furious, to victory and success.

Thanks to the Telluride Ski Resort, Brett Schreckengost and Mountain Ghost Media for creating such a beautiful, moving piece of local art and showing the cross-cultural, heartfelt support shared by so many here for our Colorado home football team. Good luck Broncos!

Aries (Mar. 20-Apr.19) The Chinese Lunar New Year comes early this year, giving you a quick jump-start on re-creating New Year resolutions. Aquarius is good for inventive ideas that work. Its inherently mechanical energy combines practical realism with out-of-the-box thinking. Join the party and take a good, honest look at your life. Change the recipe and make this year different!

Taurus (Apr. 20-May 20) A fresh New Moon in Aquarius heralds Chinese New Year and a time of awakened ambition for the Bull. More direct solar rays infuse your spirit with light, illuminating themes of achievement and success. The desire for self-improvement via accomplishment runs strong. Social and academic circles beckon your presence. It’s time to get out and get going.

Gemini (May 21-June 21) You may be feeling unclear about which professional project to tackle or commit to, but, no worries, time will tell. It’s often difficult for mutable, restless Twins to rest in life’s process. Natural default positions and inherent curiosity keep you moving. Financial partnerships are back on track; now it’s time to do the books and work on taxes. One day at a time.

Where have you been and where do you want to go? Personal daily inventories engender self-awareness; it all begins and ends within. This is a year of wildly beneficial opportunity. Humility, responsibility and gratitude are allies. Focus on the positive and go for the good.

Leo (July 23-Aug.22) The Aquarius zodiac month marks the halfway point in your annual revolution around the Sun, a time when you feel more interested and attracted to others in your life and world. Personal focus shifts to relationship focus as you see the many reflections of self in others. You may feel the desire to partner and commit, share and pair. Venus in Capricorn encourages patience and sacrifice. Simply do your best.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sep.22) The Chinese New Year of the Horse begins with a bang as planets shift and shapes morph. Transformation is the name of the game as you find yourself thinking about the ideals and realities of relationship. Heartfelt love and physical attraction play a big part in your week. Keep the faith, focus on the facts and maintain programs of self-betterment and self-care.

Libra (Sep. 23-Oct. 22) You may find yourself discussing domestic issues with family and friends, checking in on yourself and cultivating your personal garden of nurturing as Venus goes direct in Capricorn. Home improvement, self-beautification and relaxing enjoyment are themes. Chinese New Year marks an opening of the heart. Feel the power of love in and all around you.

For charismatic Scorpions, it heralds a powerful point of self-reckoning and self-awakening, a time to till the inner soil. Identify seeds of intention and desire as you plan the garden and nurture the spirit.

Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 20) The magical mind of hope and inspiration awakens higher-self consciousness as days grow longer and sunrays become more direct. Venus stationary forward in your solar 2nd house of self-reliance and resource encourage the practice of physical wellness and self-care. Recognize the power of personal responsibility and set yourself free.

Capricorn (Dec. 21-Jan. 19) Voluptuous Venus goes direct in your sign this week, ending a long period of self-revision and review, specifically in the areas of romance and finance. Now that you have redefined what you value, it’s time to start aligning that value system with your life and relationships. Big job? Take it easy, one day and one arena at a time. Cultivate patience and inner peace.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) As you celebrate another revolution around the Sun, the entire Eastern world also celebrates their own. Sunset on the first day following the New Moon in Aquarius marks the advent of Chinese New Year. Cosmic gateways open to the unlimited potential and possibility of our Universe. Plant seeds of intention and desire as you embrace life and dance in starlight.

Pisces (Feb. 19-Mar. 20) Gung hey fat Choy! Good luck, good health and good fortune. Attuned to the eternally bountiful power and potential of the Universe, cosmically aware and spiritually adept, you understand the ultimate grace and grandeur of compassion and loving-kindness. This is the time, now is moment. Live it, breathe it, be it. Show others the way, lead by the light.
