This is the very month to see an investment advisor and plan your financial fortunes. Start modestly; start with $25 if that’s all you have. But definitely start, and stick to it. However, the real investment you would be wise to make is one of having faith in yourself and in the gifts you bring into this world.
Rarely does any major effort worth the making beget instant results. Yet it seems you’re feeling under pressure to produce them. Try to rest a little easier. Even professional magicians, who literally do pull rabbits out of hats, train for a while to perfect their skill. This week there’ll be a further change, which will probably come through as a piece of the puzzle you perhaps didn’t realize you were missing.
Tomorrow night (early Saturday in some time zones) the Sun leaves Capricorn and ingresses Aquarius. That this sign change happens each year within a few days of Martin Luther King Jr.’s birthday feels fascinatingly appropriate, even though King was a Capricorn. Amanda Painter considers the late-week astrology through an Aquarian paradox.
Treat joint finances and ‘permanent’ commitments with more care than usual. I don’t mean hesitancy — I mean scrutiny. Inaccuracies that slip into the mix, whether intentional (deception) or seemingly unintentional (overlooking details) or careless (skipping over due diligence), will cause problems, so proceed with impeccability.
With Venus in Capricorn square asteroid Pallas in Aries today, notice whether the theory and reality of your relationships are meshing. They might not be — but that’s no reason to panic. You can probably think of some ways to express how you feel, even if you do so conservatively, that will help you move closer to what you think is right for you.
Sometimes people experience a sense of danger when the time comes to be happy and successful wondering when the rug is going to get ripped from under them again. So consider true happiness, which includes creative and sexual fulfillment as well, to be a kind of dare. It’s an adventure into new and unfamiliar territory.
