YOUR HOROSCOPE BY BLES CARMONA
For the week of January 18-24, 2016
For all the signs: The Full Moon in Leo happens on January 23 (Sat.), which according to esteemed East-West astrologer Cathy Coleman, PhD, is about “the importance of friendships as well as time for oneself.” When the Moon is full in one sign, you can be sure that the Sun is located in the sign which is 180 degrees, or opposite, the sign where the Moon is, based on the zodiac wheel. So if the Full Moon is in Leo, it follows that the Sun is in Aquarius, in this case both at 3 degrees 29 of their respective signs.

Venus will be entering Capricorn on that day as well, and when we do Capricorn-talk, we will be focusing on many practical matters. Mercury is still retrograde until the 25th so if any of those practical matters in your life involve electronics, communication, and transportation, double-check your arrangements and exercise reasonable caution. Blessings and light be unto you this week!
ARIES (Mar 21-Apr 19) You’re making great progress by spending more time in quiet reflection these days. However, you will realize that a brighter future can be attained by seeking out like-minded individuals to partner or group with. Weekly mantra: I reach out in love and light.
TAURUS (Apr 20-May 20) Even in the face of a looming issue, remind yourself that there’s no rush to come up with an answer. It’s better to have a well-thought out solution in which you also consulted other people whose opinions you value. Weekly mantra: I have patience and peace.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) Have you been waiting to hear good news? This could be the week when you finally rejoice because of it. Your consistency and smart choices certainly earned you some cosmic rewards. Congratulations on your success! Weekly mantra: I am happy and humble.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) What could add to your feeling of security? Probably a comfy nest egg for your retirement. Start saving on your own and you may just find it augmented by a surprising source. Meanwhile, continue being the leader that you are. Weekly mantra: I flourish and prosper.
LEO (July 23-Aug 22) If you’re not seeing things clearly, then step back a wee bit to improve your perspective. As long as you don’t sugarcoat the reality of a situation, know that it is within you to make an informed and better choice. Weekly mantra: I trust my own judgment.
VIRGO (Aug 23-Sept 22) Now that several issues and tasks are coming at you from all directions, once again you reinforce your belief that you can be a mean multitasker like the best of them. These challenges do not faze you at all. Weekly mantra: When at work, I am in my element.
LIBRA (Sept 23-Oct 22) When you don’t feel challenged by your endeavors anymore, it’s time to bring out and polish the old dreams you’ve been keeping under wraps. If money and time were no object, what creative thing will you do? What would fire up your imagination and keep you on your toes in heart-pounding excitement? Weekly mantra: I am enthusiastic and energetic.
SCORPIO (Oct 23-Nov 21) Somehow or other, you’ll be in the spotlight this week. Now normally you’d hate all that fuss, being the private person that you are. However, just try to understand your family’s or co-workers’ intentions without your usual suspicion. They’re just happy for you. Congratulations! Weekly mantra: My success comes from dedication and self-discipline.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov 22-Dec 21) Your passions and philosophy in life have led you to where you are today, career-wise and in your personal life. You’re thinking that the next big thing for you is to be compensated for your creative talents. Well, go for it, always striving to be the best in what you do. Weekly mantra: I am inspired to be creative.
CAPRICORN (Dec 22-Jan 19) In the face of some challenges that lie ahead, remember to protect the fruits of your labors and keep in touch with your loved ones. You don’t have to bear your burdens alone. Seek help if you need it, because when you were the strong one, you gave generously of your own resources. Weekly mantra: I am protected and prepared.
AQUARIUS (Jan 20-Feb 18) Your plans somehow work out quite well this week. Your innovative mind is coming up with incredible ideas that may just snag you some rewards and recognition. However, your best fans are still your loved ones. Weekly mantra: I am lucky and loved.
PISCES (Feb 19-Mar 20) Train yourself to be mentally strong in the face of sudden or unexpected changes. Mercury may be retrograde but events are moving very fast indeed. Stay focused and determined – and when it’s time to act, do so swiftly and firmly. Weekly mantra: I am responsible and ready.
