“It is often stated that of all the theories proposed in this century, the silliest is quantum theory. In fact, some say that the only thing that quantum theory has going for it is that it is unquestionably correct.”
— Michio Kaku

If Your Birthday is Jan. 24
(The Day of the Aloof Icon) | Aquarius Birthday Reading | All Other Signs
You may become obsessed with an idea, a need or a person, though if you do, try to relax and see the wider landscape of your existence. If you make a strategy to get that one thing, you’ll miss many others. Let your sincerity lead the way, and strive to understand the difference between a desire and a need. That will help you prioritize.
|Current Aquarius Weekly Horoscope
The Sun and Venus are in your sign, and you’re probably feeling a lot better than you have in weeks or even months. You know that positive changes are on the horizon; there’s excitement in the air.
|Current Aquarius Monthly Horoscope
The concept of an inner life is elusive to most people. By inner life, I mean the world that you contain, your conscious growth process, and your relationship to your past.
Written in the Planets
As the Sun and Moon form a square today (lunar first quarter), the Sun makes a couple of interesting aspects to Vesta and 1992 QB1. It would seem there’s potential to turn a corner or cross a threshold in some matter that’s intellectual, physical and emotional. And the thing giving you traction to do so looks like some kind of sexual-spiritual fire, along with your devotion to keeping that fire burning brightly. If that feels a little too esoteric for your everyday purposes, tap into Mercury’s conjunction to Pluto in Capricorn: use your mind to penetrate whatever captures your attention today. Just remember to look up once in a while so you don’t get obsessed, and so you can take in how others are feeling.
