Venus is now in your soul sector, dear Aries, where she will stay until February 20th. This cycle brings a little more mystery to your love life, and even to your affections. You are not as clear when it comes to openly expressing your love, as you need time to get in better touch with your own feelings during this period. There can be a greater love of private moments with a partner, or for some of you, a need to give of yourself unselfishly. There may also be a greater love of private moments for yourself, as some of you could be enjoying, and benefiting from, a certain measure of solitude. Help may come from behind the scenes. You may need to do some soul-searching about your love life or your feelings. Take your time when it comes to matters of the heart – this is not the time to rush things. On a financial level, this can be a time to look at past projects and patterns for benefits and clues.
Venus is now transiting your friendship sector, dear Taurus, where she will stay until February 20th. Venus, now in Pisces, is wistful and compassionate in this sign. There can be interesting connections with and through friends made now. This cycle brings good-natured energy to your social life. You value friendships without too many expectations now, and you are not big on displays of excessive ego needs or demands, preferring to allow yourself, and to give, freedom and space. Pleasing variety can be experienced in your social life during this cycle. It’s easy for you to attract friends and those who share common interests, and your manner is amenable and friendly. By nature, you are always especially helpful with friends, and this trait is emphasized now. Tonight is good for allowing your thoughts to wander, as you can make some interesting discoveries, especially related to life-path and career goals. In fact, as the week progresses, you’re likely to gain some very valuable insight on these fronts.
Venus is now transiting your career and reputation sector, dear Gemini, where she will bring benefits until February 20th. This cycle brings increased social opportunities through your business or professional dealings, as well as more concern for the image you are projecting to others. You are coming across as nice, helpful, charming, attractive, and kind. You may be socially ambitious right now, and success may come through your good managerial qualities or some form of artistic talent. In fact, your creativity may be on display in some manner – recognized and acknowledged, and you’re less afraid to showcase your talents. Making personal contact with people in positions of authority or with the public can enhance your career and reputation. Some of you might also meet a love interest through your business.
Venus is now transiting fellow Water sign (Pisces) until February 20th, dear Cancer. After spending some time getting in touch and comfortable with your deeper, darker feelings and needs, you’re now ready to share your light. This transit is strong for you when it comes to your powers of attraction – bringing desired things to you rather than your actively and directly pursuing them. It also stimulates your desire for more variety and diversity in your life. Your tastes can be somewhat exotic now, and this can extend to people, places, things, and situations. Sharing your personal philosophy with someone special can bring a relationship to a new level, or even attract a new one.
Venus enters the sign of Pisces today, where she will transit until February 20th, dear Leo. This transit stimulates your urge to share in a harmonious manner with others, and on a more mundane level, can be beneficial for money shared or coming to you from other sources than direct personal income. You are beginning a cycle that favors working on the more complicated or intricate areas of relationships, sharing, and intimacy. Financially speaking, you may find backing or support, and you are more reasonable with regards to working out agreements. Your love nature runs a little deeper now. This is in fact a strong period for exploring the deeper, darker elements of your feelings and attractions.
After spending time in your work and health sector, Venus is now moving through your partnership sector, dear Virgo, where she will transit until February 20th. This is a strong cycle for attracting and enhancing close relationships, or bringing pleasing social situations into your life. Your manner is conciliatory and open, reasonable and polite, and these qualities are very appealing to others now. In general, you are more adaptable when it comes to your affections, and more willing to compromise. This is an especially good time for negotiations of all kinds. In spite of all this, it’s important to know what you’re worth in order to attract and accept the best positive energy in return from others. This is a time for treating others as equals, and accepting no less from others.
Venus enters your work and health sector today, dear Libra, where she will transit until February 20th. This is a strong cycle for bringing harmony to your daily life, including your working environment. You can experience a powerful urge to restore balance to working relationships as well as routines. There may be more social opportunities through your work or through pursuit of your health goals and daily routines. While this is not the most glamorous of transits for your love life, you can turn heads and make some progress by showing your affection in practical ways. Work and charm are tied to one another during this cycle, and this can mean attractions on the job for some, or improved social relations in the work environment. There may be some lack of discipline at times, however! This may be a time when you may be more inclined to serve or service others. Keep this in balance.
With Venus now in Pisces until February 20th, dear Scorpio, your natural charm and appeal are subtly but effectively enhanced in others’ eyes. You are more playful and attractive, and you are received well by others, including love interests. Feeling good translates and radiates good energy. It’s also a good cycle for dabbling in the arts, entertainment, and pleasure-seeking activities. Venus has been spending time in a very introspective, even self-protective sector of your chart since early January, and is now expressing its charms more naturally and overtly. This is a comfortable and easy energy, but it’s also gently stimulating enough for you to notice and appreciate its gifts.
Venus enters your family and home sector today, where she will transit until February 20th, dear Sagittarius. During this cycle, pleasing energy is with you for domestic matters. It’s easier to bring more harmony and comfort in your home and with family. Your heart may be playing it safe with new people, however. Make a point of spending more leisure time with family or those near and dear. You might get an urge to dress up your living quarters in more artistic or aesthetically pleasing ways. Entertaining in the home can also be quite favorable during this cycle. Venus rules your friendship sector, and with her now a guest in your home sector, this can be the time for your own guests! Love might be found close to home.
Now and until February 20th, Venus is in favorable aspect to your Sun, dear Capricorn, and is transiting your sector of communications and transportation. This influence can subtly boost your communication skills, as you’re far more conscious than usual of expressing yourself fairly, kindly, and diplomatically. Your powers of persuasion are enhanced, and you seem to know exactly what to say at just the right moment. Love can be enhanced with good conversations, emails, and even texts – these can be light, but the focus is on making the extra effort to connect and show you care. Others might be especially attracted to your ideas, intelligence, and style of communication. Instead of pushing for answers, Venus waits for them to come her way, after first asking nicely! During this cycle, you will be especially curious about others, and particularly interested in sharing your daily activities with someone special. Your communication skills may be especially important in your career at this point.
Venus moves out of your sign today, dear Aquarius, and into your values sector, where she will stay until February 20th. This settles things down as you focus more on personal needs. Affections stabilize during this cycle, and you begin to value simpler pleasures. You are beginning to understand the concept behind the expression, “love is patience”. The ability to relate well with others might enhance your own personal finances during this period. This is a stable position for love matters and close relationships. You value those who make you feel comfortable, and familiarity is more important to you than new experiences during this cycle. Money or gifts may come to you at this time, and your appetite for beautiful or luxurious things increases.
Today, Venus leaves your privacy sector and moves into your sign, dear Pisces, where she will stay until February 20th. This puts the focus on pleasure, attraction, and affection in your life. Your natural charm emerges for everyone to see now, and you are also clearer about your own feelings and more expressive and open with your affections. During this cycle, you are more inclined to attract things and people into your life as opposed to pursuing them directly and actively, and you are especially well-equipped to do so. Your powers of persuasion are considerable now with a “soft sell” approach. You are turning heads – people notice you more than usual. Make the best of the good vibes!

BALANCE OF SIGNS
Scores: Aries 1; Taurus 3; Gemini 0; Cancer 0; Leo 1; Virgo 0; Libra 0; Scorpio 0; Sagittarius 1; Capricorn 1; Aquarius 5; Pisces 5
Stable and enduring, strong values, unyielding, earthy, acquisitive, strong desires. Can be stuck, stubborn, overly possessive, self-indulgent.
Humanitarian, innovative, group conscious, progressive, serving others. Can be rebellious, eccentric, aloof, emotionally superficial, overly extroverted.
Compassionate, sensitive, self-sacrificing, gentle, intuitive. Can be escapist, impractical, hyper- sensitive, gullible.
BALANCE OF ELEMENTS
Scores: Fire 3; Earth 4; Air 5; Water 5
The elements are balanced in this chart.
BALANCE OF MODES
Scores: Cardinal 2; Fixed 9; Mutable 6
You prefer to follow in other people’s footsteps rather than initiate actions. You can be relied on to come up with the goods as long as someone else has the initial ideas. Your survival mechanisms are weak.
You do not enjoy change. You expect others to be reliable, like yourself.
LUNAR PHASE: FIRST QUARTER
Moon from 90 to 135 degrees ahead of the Sun.
We are action oriented with managerial capabilities and the ability to get results. We may sometimes push too hard for our ideals.
The following aspects (major only) and positions are at noon (EST) on January 27th:
Note that when an aspect is Applying, it has not yet happened but is within orb – it’s pending. When an aspect is Separating, it has already happened/perfected and is moving away from the aspect. Depending on the speed of the planet/body involved, the aspect will have perfected, or will perfect, in a matter of hours (often the case with the Moon), days, months, and possibly years in the case of the very slow-moving outer planets and bodies.
Note that the Moon moves at a rate of approximately one degree every 2 hours, so that if an aspect involving is applying and has an orb of 5 degrees, the aspect will perfect (be exact) in about 10 hours. If the Moon is separating from an aspect with an orb of 2 degrees, it has already formed said aspect approximately 4 hours ago (since the following are positions at noon today, then it would have occurred at about 8 AM today).
**I suggest paying close attention to applying aspects. The energy of the aspect builds as it gets closer to exact. Once an aspect has happened, it’s over. Separating aspects are good to know for context, but in terms of energy that is with us today, applying aspects are most important. (This is the case for daily astrology influences, which pass quickly, and not natal astrology aspects, which are with us for a life time).
