2014 Horoscopes Overview
2014 Overview Horoscopes
The difference between the first half of 2014 and the second half of the year can be like night and day for you, dear Aries. The first half of the year can find you more introspective than usual, and possibly indecisive and hesitant at times. It may be difficult for relationships, and possibly for health and personal plans with Venus retrograde until January 31st, and then Mars retrograde from March 1st to May 19th. However, you get the chance to reassess your attitude towards close relationships, as well as to your work and money situation. How can you improve your reputation and professional life? You may very well find the answer in January or February. Uranus continues to stimulate your need to assert your independence this year, but has the most direct effect on those Aries born March 29th to April 5th (9 to 16-1/2 degrees Aries). You are redefining how you want to live your life, and especially on your own terms. Pluto continues to transform your attitudes towards career and reputation, and has the most direct effect on Aries born March 31st to April 3rd (11 to 13-1/2 degrees). Jupiter brings the expansion of fun, entertainment, and for some, romance into your lives in the second half of the year, and especially from September forward. A beautiful aspect begins in September, affecting the whole sign of Aries but especially those born in the middle of the sign (April 2nd to 6th). New ventures, especially creative ones, are likely now, and can be especially exciting and innovating – even cutting edge. New friendships or travel opportunities are possible as well. And, it’s about time! The second half of the year is about opening up. You’re cheerful, taking things in stride, and confident in yourself. Romance can be especially fun. You’re more fertile and creative. Kids can be a source of great joy for some. People are paying attention and enjoying you. Saturn acts as a bit of a nag for Aries again this year – guilt, adjustments, some worry: these are all possible. It also encourages you to take care of your debts, and to change your lifestyle to incorporate better habits. There can be some intimacy issues this year. There may be decreased desire for intimacy, possibly some fear or disdain for the confines of an intense relationship, or strains on existing partnerships. The second half of May is especially good for taking better care of money, and especially shared resources or debts and obligations. A real plan can be made – a realistic one. An overarching theme this year is set up by the North Node’s entrance into your opposing sign (Libra) in February, and will continue into 2015. This is a time for reassessing your relationship needs, and particularly committed partnerships. For many Aries, the last few years have put a strain on this area of life, and now you’ll be challenged to figure out what needs to change in order to reach a state of happiness. Jupiter helps from mid-year forward, but it may not be until 2015 when many Aries will find greater happiness in long-term, committed love relationships – or some will decide that this is not for them, and will be quite content with their choice. 2014 is more about experimentation and discovery.
2014 is a year for discovering what makes you truly happy, and new avenues for self-expression can seem to magically open up for you. The second half of the year focuses more heavily on having fun. This discovery period can involve some trial and error, and there may be times when you go to extremes. However, by the end of Jupiter’s transit of your romance, creativity, and children sector in mid-2015, you’ll likely come to a state of balance and better understanding. You can be hesitant about sharing yourself with anyone except those closest to you (family and people who are close enough to be like family) in the first half of the year, after which you blossom. This is especially true if you have done a lot of “work” on centering yourself and learning about your desires, wishes, and needs.
New interests and learning continue to be positive themes in 2014, dear Taurus, but later this year, there can be a real settling down process going on in your life. The home and family come into strong focus, and you are feeling the need to expand, grow, and improve in these areas. In fact, some of you will move into larger or more appropriate accommodations. Others will focus on making improvements to current living conditions. For those of you who need to make repairs in family relationships, from mid-July forward is ideal for doing so. You are likely to find more value – and joy – in your family and your domestic life. There can be innovative or technological improvements, new ideas, and a forward-looking, happy energy in the home life. Some of you could gain loans or support for buying, or investing into, a home. A partner could be doing quite well at this time, and this helps your overall financial picture. This is also an excellent time for ridding yourself of nagging fears or long-standing problems that have been holding you back from living the life you want. It’s strong for learning what it is you truly value, and for building your confidence for more expressive periods to come. Major new projects begun somewhere between mid-July 2014 to August 2015 can turn out to be very rewarding, profitable, and long-term, so lay down your foundations well. The first half of the year is lush for opportunities to expand your knowledge and to make pleasant contact with others. There can be a real feeling of connectedness with friends, siblings, your neighborhood, and your community. Interests expand. Communications projects are well-starred, and you might secure, complete, or refine a major project in May. Transportation matters can continue to improve. Some of you could get new cars, if you haven’t already in the second half of 2013, or other means of transportation open up to you. A maturing process, particularly when it comes to relating with others and partnerships, continues this year. Others often seem to take priority in your life at this time. At times, lessons are difficult – there can be some physical drain experienced, for example. Taureans should go to regular check-ups, particularly when it comes to teeth and bones. Some of you could be seeing the more unflattering side of committed partnerships, or even of yourselves through the mirror of relationships, while others enjoy improvements to existing relationships, although not without some effort and a few challenges.
You might also experience some more worldly setbacks, or what appear to be setbacks, and some of you could be feeling less valued or even overlooked at times. This is especially possible for those born later in the sign. For much of 2014, your personal life tends to overshadow your professional life. Even so, work can be a little more challenging this year than it has been in other years. You may need to make some adjustments and shifts in your activities. Health can also require you to make important lifestyle adjustments. Until January 31st, take your time when it comes to decisions revolving around work, health, travel, and education. You could experience slow-downs at this time. Motivation can drop temporarily. From March to mid-May, you might also experience some backtracking, lowered energy levels, or decreasing motivation. This is a time for re-doing and refining things, not pushing ahead with all-new endeavors. Watch for over-the-top or impulsive actions, especially in your intimate life, in October. December 2-24 can be a time when you throw caution to the wind or act a little out of character as well. Success may be especially prominent in business fields related to service, communications, promotion, publishing, and real estate in 2014. Career or reputation matters can go through some changes and challenges, but are greatly improved from September forward. This is a year for “settling in”, feathering your nest, improving your relationships with family, and meeting responsibilities.
2014 is a strong year for building and expanding, as well as for learning and connecting, dear Gemini. More day-to-day contact with friends and family can be healing and pleasurable. In the first half of the year, you are continuing a trend in which you are building and growing your material resources. This is a time of abundance on some level – you might acquire or purchase something of value that you’ve always wanted, invest, or enjoy an increase in business and income. There can be a strong emphasis on comfort and enjoying simple (and sometimes not so simple) pleasures. You can take great pleasure in growing a business or enjoying the comforts of a relationship. Some of the greatest joys and challenges this year come through your creativity, uniqueness, love affairs, and sharing your heart. In the first half of the year, these things may be problematic at times. People in your life, especially children, friends, and lovers, can be temperamental or there can be large demands on your time and energy. You need to make a conscious effort to deal with others in a more personal, involved, and loving manner, rather than falling back on reason and intellect which detaches you from your feelings. Learning to take personal risks, which requires a certain amount of self-confidence, will help you to achieve inner balance and happiness. You need to sort out feelings and desires, and watch for impulsiveness in love and with money. The second half of the year brings very strong energy for your social life and for learning, communicating, and new interests. You’re especially sharp now. Your thinking and reasoning processes mature and grow. You are hungry to learn, to produce, and to share your ideas. Relationships with siblings, a partner, and even neighbors can improve significantly. Reaching out even in the smallest of ways can be rewarding and can even bring new opportunities into your life. Particularly from September forward, you can experience a newfound feeling of liberation in your thoughts and in your ability to express yourself. You are finding your voice in some way, and this can be connected to groups and friendships. Schools or your neighborhood and community can be important places for meeting new people and possibly even a partner. You bring an inspired and spirited approach to your dealings with others, and you are very much appreciated for this. Saturn and Pluto can act as “nags” this year, reminding you from time to time that you need to take better care of your health, pay more attention to your work, and dig a little more deeply into your own inner workings and desires. There can be some changing of priorities – what used to drive and motivate you may no longer inspire you. There is a strong need for a higher purpose to what you are doing. If friends or social affiliations have been holding you back, you may begin to move with a new crowd this year. Some of you may simply find new and exciting things to do with current contacts and friends.
2014 is stronger for committed, long-term partnerships than it is for casual love relationships and the world of dating, which can be up and down or unpredictable especially in the first half of the year. Even if you don’t have a solid plan, and many of you don’t quite yet, write, learn, and absorb as much as you can this year and until August 2015, because what you produce and the skills and the knowledge that you acquire now can be used later, possibly for great profit, when avenues can open up for using and developing these things to your long-term advantage.
Expansive Jupiter continues to move through your sign this year, dear Cancer, until mid-July. If you haven’t taken advantage of its gifts and blessings, it’s time to do so. This is a time for a very positive new personal beginning and awakening. It’s a period of increased confidence, and of others’ confidence in you as well. One of the best things you can do for yourself this year, besides putting yourself “out there”, is to work on taking charge of your home and family life, which may be demanding in the first half of 2014. Perhaps because the world is demanding a lot of your attention now, home life can be a little mixed up or hurried and hectic. One of the ways to improve your personal life is to consciously work on relaxing your standards for achievement in your profession or in the outside world, just enough to establish a nice balance. By working on your inner foundation and your “base”, success will ricochet back to your public and professional lives. Confidence in your body, manner, and image increases now, and sometimes dramatically, allowing you more freedom to do what you want to do and to experience life on a “new and improved” level. Others truly enjoy being around you, and see you as the wonderful person that you are. It’s not about your accomplishments, achievements, or performance at the moment – it’s about who you are. The second half of 2014 brings new and quite wonderful energy to your finances, personal possessions, as well as your sense of comfort and security. There is stronger focus on the simple pleasures and comforts of life, although you might have your eye on something expensive or indulgent as well. It’s actually a good time to make larger, significant purchases, generally speaking, and within reason. You might suddenly find yourself in the position to acquire a long-wanted item or experience. Earnings might expand now, but it’s very important to be grateful at this time in your life. Look to expand, but don’t overreach. Excess can trip you up at a time when you have real, solid opportunities to improve your lot in life.
Depending on what you want at this time in your life, it can be a time of more business or more leisure – whichever helps to make you feel content and that leads to a feeling of abundance. Even so, there can be times when you feel that you have less time or opportunities for pursuing your hobbies, a romance, or playful time with children. You may have less obvious “luck” on a social level at times. Kids can be more demanding, or your tastes may be changing in such a way that you derive less pleasure from the things that you previously enjoyed. Love is a serious matter again this year. You can be attracting intense, complicated, or even controlling people into your experience. May can bring stabilizing and helpful energy to a love relationship, however. There may not be big changes in relationships in 2014, but always a sense that changes are in the works. Especially from September forward, there can be sudden or unusual opportunities that arise with business, work, or money. There can be bold career moves and surprising opportunities. Some of you could free yourselves of heavy obligations, burdens, or debts, allowing you to move forward with more confidence and a happy feeling of liberation. You might discover and develop a talent, and others might suddenly recognize your value, in the job world especially. There can be discoveries about health and wellness programs that improve your outlook on life. Keep your eyes and mind open!
A powerful year is ahead for you, dear Leo! Jupiter will move into your sign mid-July, stimulating a personal new beginning of sorts and upping your personal magnetism to new heights. Until then, you are in a strong period for healing and for doing inner work. Working on your communication skills is essential this year, particularly in the first half. You can be very active making connections and getting the word out now, but there can be some problems with impulsive or even brusque communications. This can also play out in terms of physical movement and transportation. Tone things down as much as possible, particularly on the job in January, and everywhere else from March to mid-May. some of the greatest joys – and challenges – come through learning, communications, and connecting. You need to learn to listen to others so that you discover the value of true communication and exchange, and to see both sides of a situation. Learning to slow down, to be sensitive to social graces and networks, and to sensitize yourself to others’ needs and communications, will release you from nervous tension and help you achieve more happiness and inner balance. You are also challenged to spend more time in your own neighborhood, with siblings, at school, and with family. The first half of 2014 is powerful for healing and serving – and thoroughly enjoying the process! There is some tendency to overdo escapism, however, which should be watched. May is especially strong for finalizing a creative project or reaping the rewards from one, as well as better energy for family affairs. While family and/or home life can be felt as restrictive and confining at times again this year, in May, there is more enjoyment or pride in taking on and meeting family responsibilities. You’re doing a lot for others, and for the most part, you feel good about it, in the first half of the year. Perhaps your most important work in early 2014 is finding peace with the past. This will free you up for better enjoyment of the Jupiter in Leo transit that begins in the middle of July and runs well into 2015. There can be some lessened vitality or susceptibility to mild health issues. Home is not always the ideal place for escape and relaxation in recent years and in 2014. Making the home a healthier place, both physically and psychologically, will do much to improve this. There is more emotional sensitivity and openness this year as well. Increasingly, you’re experiencing a greater need to explore your inner needs and psychological makeup. Watch for neglect or even deception in money dealings, particularly with others. Some of you could be racking up too much debt, or a significant other may be a drain on your resources in some way.
The second half of the year is about awakening. Your desire to truly live life rather than simply going through the motions becomes consuming now. You project yourself with more confidence, and many of you are enjoying a newfound confidence in your own body and manner. You are letting go of the more immature behavior patterns of the past and becoming especially comfortable in your own skin. This is a great time for improving your manner and appearance, although this tends to come with very little effort – it’s a natural process. People truly like you, not necessarily for what you do, but for your personality, and they especially enjoy your company during this cycle. Personal pleasures, freedom, self-expression, and creativity are big on your list of priorities. Exciting energy is with many of you in your love life. You may be attracting foreigners, teachers, or intellectuals into your experience, and some of you can enter a long-distance romance or meet someone special through your travels. What is most important to you at this point in your life is a meeting of minds. You crave intellectual stimulation, and you’re hungry to learn and experience new things. In the first half of the year, love may be on the complicated side (for some, it’s absent). There may be a relationship that is private or sacrificial in some manner. From mid-year forward, there is a romantic revelation, blossoming, or awakening going on. Especially from September forward, there is excitement in your love life. It’s also a strong time for travel, education, and recognition of your creative talents. Full overview.
Virgos are known for their strong connection to work and service. However, while work will assume some importance in 2014, dear Virgo, you are now paying more attention to other needs – social, spiritual, and personal. There is a healing process going on for you this year. It’s a time of service, but also a time for getting the rest you need. In the first half of 2014, you’re continuing a cycle in which connections to friends, groups, and your community are beneficial and important. It’s a strong time for reaching out to others, networking, and making connections. There can be group involvements that bring you much joy, new friendships that feed your spirit, and a larger focus on “happiness” goals all around. Particularly in May, many of you are making lasting connections, possibly working on important projects with others, and sharing your knowledge with friends or associates. You could be finding your “voice” through others or through group connections. This is a fine time to lay down solid plans for long-term goals. Financial matters are in need of some serious review in the first half of the year. It will be especially important to get money matters sorted out. Motivation to increase your own income is strong now, and possibly fueled by problems with loans, taxes, alimony, or shared money, which may not be very reliable. Many benefits can come through working towards some level of financial independence this year. The second half of the year brings Jupiter, the planet of abundance, into your privacy zone. This year-long influence (it lasts until August 2015) prefaces Jupiter’s transit of your own sign, which will bring you out of your shell and confident enough to reap your due rewards. Until then, there will be more emphasis on privacy, down time, relaxation, meditation, and rest. There can also be some sacrifices made for others, as your own needs seem to be less pressing as those of the people you love, and to humanity as a whole in some cases. You may be doing a lot for others at this time, and mostly quite happily. You more easily brush ego issues aside, recognizing your contribution to others as highly important. Of course, you need to draw some boundaries, but for the most part, this is all a voluntary process that brings you joy. There can be a lot of focus on serving the family in the second half of the year and well into 2015. While this is a time for healing from the inside out and some escapism from the pressures of the world, as well as the pressures you place on yourself, it’s of course important to avoid overdoing escapist tendencies. Be sure to check in from time to time and determine whether it’s doing more harm than good.
From September forward especially, there is beautiful energy for any kind of psychological or physical healing programs and work, financial initiatives, an awakening of inner life and spirituality, and powerful intuition. You can rely wonderfully on your intuition at this time. You can improve intimacy in relationships, as well as in your relationship with yourself! Generally speaking, love relationships can be much as they were last year, as the similar energies continue to influence your relationship sectors in 2014. You require more than the ordinary, humdrum, and regular experiences in order for your heart to engage. Some of you could be attracting tumultuous love relationships – casual relationships that end up demanding a lot from you, and possibly draining you. Some could be attracting controlling or intense people in love. Committed relationships can be very unclear and hard to define. You will need to be careful that you’re not holding out for someone unattainable and missing out on more empowering relationship opportunities in the process. Love can seem to require sacrifices, and there is a point when you may need to draw some boundaries and look out for yourself. Love opportunities can arise in places of learning or through connections made online or on the phone. Some of you could be working on projects that require a lot of attention to detail, or could be involved in demanding learning endeavors. Students have good energy for applying themselves and taking on responsibility this year, but there can be times when they feel a little overwhelmed. 2014 is powerful for healing, socializing, resting, and preparing for busier years to come.
In 2014, you’re learning a lot about independence and self-assertion, dear Libra. You may have discovered that people are not always reliable, or that you can’t always depend on a partner, but the more important discovery now is that you can stand on your own and succeed quite well. Fiery, assertive Mars in your sign for the first half of the year provides you with extra motivation, energy, and power to move your personal plans forward. You could surprise those around you who are used to your typically more conciliatory approach to life, as you are now learning to go after what you want. However, there are hurdles, particularly from March to mid-May. Energy may be wasted, or you could feel as if you’re spinning your wheels. You could second-guess your personal goals or your own confidence. You might also be dealing with a temperamental partner. Desires can be complicated, and you might often feel frustrated as you don’t know where to direct your energies. Learn about resentments and anger during this period. You’ll have two more months after the retrograde to sort everything out, and personal plans can be put on the front burner again. This year and well into the next bring big lessons about relationships, dependency issues, and self-assertion. You’ll be seeking a balance, but along the way, there can be extremes of behavior. Career matters are very favorable this year. You are noticeable and you make a real impact on others. Those in authority tend to look on you favorably. Communications, promotion, and word of mouth are especially beneficial. You’re feeling more responsible and competent, and others recognize these traits as well. There can be recognition for mental projects, writing, public speaking, or ideas. Most of the attention you’re getting now is positive. Even so, the second half of the year can feel much easier all around for many of you. Pressures are off – it’s a more anonymous time in many ways, as you are valued for your ability to get along with others more than for your accomplishments and performance. There is a nice feeling of contentment, yet also a subtle pressure-free desire to formulate long-term “happiness” goals as well as openness to change and progress. You’re more willing to contribute to group efforts and to your community. Friends can be very helpful and enjoyable during this cycle that is with you well into 2015. Your innate idealism is stimulated. You’re reaching out to others and you are well-received.
Finances require better organization and more detailed attention again this year. You could be feeling a pinch at times, and this is actually a good thing, as it’s a great time to find ways to save. Do whatever you can to minimize worries in this area of your life. Your love life can be complicated or up and down in the first half of the year as you struggle with defining your desires and needs, but big improvements are likely in the second half, when there is easier, less demanding, and less draining energy for relating. September forward brings beautiful energy to your social life. New connections made now are progressive, forward-looking, and beneficial, often mutually beneficial. You have an enterprising spirit and a strong sense of fairness. Your romantic life can be quite enjoyable, and your popularity can increase. Full overview.
The year ahead is a period for learning and manifesting, dear Scorpio, although there will be distinct introspective phases as well. The first half of the year is excellent for learning about the world around you and for updating your skills. Jupiter in favorable aspect to your sign can help mitigate some of the challenges of Saturn’s transit through Scorpio, which is soon coming to an end. Study and learn as much as you can while your mind is a sponge, while educational opportunities are abundant, and while good teachers or mentors tend to be more available to you. This way, you’ll be able to take fuller advantage of the career peak coming that begins as early as mid-year. There’s money here, in addition to a stronger feeling that you’re truly living life, rather than just going through the motions. May is strong for finances, especially connected to communications projects, publishing, and promotion. You may be finalizing a long-term project. Recent efforts can pay off nicely. The second half of the year is even stronger for finances, although you’ll have to watch your spending, especially in October. This can be a time when you’re projecting an image that shows others that you truly value yourself, and this can attract respect and possibly monetary rewards as well. This is a time for really putting yourself out there. People are noticing you, responding to you, respecting you, and valuing you. From mid-summer forward, you can gain recognition for your natural talents. Honors or awards might come your way. There can be a promotion for some. This is a time for starting a new business or expanding a current one. This can also be a strong time for connecting or re-connecting with a parent. Saturn in your sign all year (with the exception of the last week of 2014) is not a new energy for you, but those born in the second half of Scorpio will be feeling its energy more acutely. This is a strong period for diet, sports, and fitness, although the health may seem a little fragile at times, which can be most apparent in the first half of the year when it’s important to listen to your body’s signals for extra “down” time. The best way to manage Saturn’s influence is to focus on working towards success in the long term, rather than paying too much attention to smaller frustrations and grievances. Love these days requires more than the regular, humdrum, or ordinary in order for your heart to engage. You’re looking for bells and whistles, and bored or annoyed by the superficial or crass. In January, there may be some backtracking, slow-down, or complications in your love life.
Especially from September forward, there can be strong opportunities, often sudden or unexpected ones, associated with your work or routines. It’s a period of innovation and advancement. Your job may improve your home life in some way now, or positively impacts your family. Family is more supportive of your goals. Your earning power improves. Health is also an area of focus, and alternative methods of healing or improving can present themselves. 2014 is a year for gaining more respect and acknowledgement. It’s a time when believing in yourself, your competency, and your ability to take the lead opens up opportunities to you. Full overview.
2014 brings strong energy for your intimate world, dear Sagittarius, and later, excellent opportunities for self-expression and adventure. Your social life, including both friendships and romance, can be temperamental in the first half of the year – and, in some cases, tied up with one another! A romantic partner might be met through friends or group meetings, for example, or a friend might become a lover for some. From March to mid-May, there can be some backtracking and possibly slowdowns or complications in your social life. When it comes to love this year, serious or committed relationships can improve considerably, while casual ones can be troublesome in the first half of the year, after which there is wonderful energy for romance and/or self-expression. Regarding finances, there may be ups and downs, although you may worry more than is necessary. Good energy is with you for shared resources (a partner’s income might increase, for example, or you could pool resources in a new living arrangement). Support is forthcoming. You have strong energy around you for relationships with banks, taxes, debts, financial advisors, loans, and investments. May is most excellent for financial planning. Your intimate life can be enriched by opening up to someone and enjoying new experiences. You might never have reached such depths in a relationship until now. There can be a sexual awakening for some. For single Sagittarians, there can be a supportive friendship or greater intimacy with yourself. Psychology and other healing methods can be in the picture, and most helpful. January’s Venus retrograde makes it less than ideal for major purchases, but you can certainly benefit from reviewing your financial situation. Watch for excessive behavior in October. The second half of the year brings exciting energy to your life. You are coming out of your “shell” in many ways, as you enter a decidedly more outgoing phase of your life. Helping out from September forward is a beautiful aspect from innovative and progressive Uranus, and this combination awakens you to new ways of expressing yourself, learning about others and the world around you, a spirit for adventure, and a sense that you are truly living your life, not just going through the motions.
From the summer forward, students will especially benefit. Some of you may update your skills or pursue higher education. You are coming close to a peak period for career and recognition that begins in mid-2015, and now is the time to absorb as much as possible and improve your skills so that you will be well-prepared for that period. Keep in mind that karma can work more quickly for you if you go to excess now, with Saturn entering your sign at the tail end of the year, so keep things reasonable and moderate. This is also a favorable time for publishing, promotion, travel, language learning, teaching, religious activities, sports, competition, outdoors adventures, and so forth. Learning is very enjoyable now. It’s easier than usual to win approval from teachers, instructors, or mentors, and to connect with good ones. You can also discover artistic/creative talents, or develop existing ones, and others tend to recognize you for them. Generally speaking, 2014 is a year for finishing up major projects rather than beginning all-new ones, although your enterprising spirit from September forward should not be ignored. Full overview.
Significant partnerships and relationships can be a strong focus this year, dear Capricorn. You can enjoy opportunities to improve a close relationship or to enter into a new partnership. Others tend to be supportive of you, and much joy can be found with a special someone. Some of you could be entering profitable business partnerships. May is especially strong for partnering, possibly with a friend, and for long-term goal setting. Group activities can be productive. While this can be a pleasant period for close relationships, in January and April, watch for an overbearing manner that makes a significant other feel restricted. This can also be a time when a partner could be restless or extravagant. Otherwise, close relationships can be quite successful. If a relationship ends during this cycle, it’s likely a blessing in disguise. New ones tend to be happy. Negotiations with others tend to go well. Competition often works out in your favor in the end. Others really like you and want to be around you. More money could be put into the home and family this year, and good alignments in the last four months of the year (and into 2015) can bring support, loans, and investments in a home or living arrangements. Recently, something about living conditions, home life, or family may have been up in the air for many Capricorns – there can be some instability and indecision, or sudden circumstances that have left you feeling unsettled. While this influence continues this year and for a few more to come, in 2014, family tends to be more supportive and support is forthcoming. From mid-July forward, finances and intimacy are strong. For some of you, a significant other’s income may increase, or you could be pooling resources leading to a greater sense of abundance. Your relationship with bankers, tax collectors, and financial advisors can be quite good during this period, making it an ideal time to borrow if necessary (within reason), take out a mortgage, settle debts, and settle taxes. It’s powerful for getting financial advice as well. This is also a good time for intimate relationships, which can be taken to a new level. There can be new levels of intimacy experienced now, and great pleasure in being close to someone. Capricorns are known for their connection with career and accomplishment, but in the first half of the year, you may be struggling with motivation levels as other areas of life draw you in and seem more important. However, there can be great benefit in getting to a point of balance. From March to mid-May, there can be backtracking and complications, as well as waning interest levels. This period is not good for new beginnings and major decisions. Avoid big career moves then. From mid-May to July, focus on smoothing things out in your career or with authority figures and parents. Home life can be a little wild in terms of schedules, and you may need to sort that out before you can focus better on your professional life or responsibilities to the outside world.
The retrograde of Venus in your sign until January 31st can be a time of questioning yourself, refining your image, and some introspection. It will be important to consciously work on bringing warmth to your presentation, as it might not be as natural at this time. Watch for over the top behavior in the last week of October and first three weeks of November. However, this can also be a time for taking a creative risk. You could be re-examining long-term goals this year, and possibly some friendships or group associations. You are generally well-respected and regarded with friends and associates. For some, there can be a paring down in this area of life. Areas where you might enjoy more success in 2014 include the healing professions, therapy, counseling, and real estate. Some of you could be sorting out working from home or a family business. Full overview.
The major key to success this year, dear Aquarius, is focusing on long-term success rather than short-term frustrations. With Saturn in difficult aspect to your sign (this will affect those born in the second half of Aquarius most), there can be hurdles to jump, but paying attention to details now can help secure your future. Most notable bright areas this year – and there are plenty – are self-care and self-improvement endeavors, work, earning of respect, long-term partnerships, and friendships. Your schedule is likely to be quite full in the first half of the year, but mostly pleasantly so. For those of you in need of work or who want to improve their daily routines or working life, this is a fabulous time to do so, although you’ll need to watch for taking on too much. Friends and associates are likely to turn to you often – others are respecting your contribution, but you need to know when and where to draw the line. You may be meeting new friends through the work you do during this period; some of you through pursuit of your health and wellness goals. There can be pressures involving career and reputation this year, but it’s likely to be strong and steady in May, when many of you can manifest something significant, likely on practical, work or school-related lines. Ambition can be strong, and you can feel a lot of pressure to perform and meet responsibilities. You might feel the weight of increased responsibilities at times this year, but mostly you feel a nice sense of accomplishment. This is not a year to push too hard. Finances continue to be a little confusing at times this year. It may not be a year for increasing your income, even if work is strong, as it may not always greatly impact your money situation. There are some murky waters to navigate here, but also a lot of creativity if you choose to tune in. Artists might enjoy increased earnings, however. There is a strong emphasis on communications again this year. Some of you could get published or reach a wider audience. There is great innovation in the world of communications, trade, and promotion. There may be some hiccups with travel or education in March and April, which can be ironed out nicely in subsequent months. Transportation issues can be in strong focus this year – new avenues for getting from point A to B can open up. There can be opportunities to travel, further your education, or even to learn a new foreign language for some. The second half of the year can be quite excellent for partnerships, whether these are business or romantic (or both!). This wonderful influence is with you until mid-2015, and can bring much joy to your life. Suddenly, opportunities for relationships can open up for you, with one or more potential partners in the mix. For some, a friendship can move to a whole new level. Negotiations and counseling situations can be beneficial. You might find yourself in the role of teaching or counseling, and some could gain a trusted advisor. One-to-one counseling sessions can be very helpful. Some of you could get married or enter a new long-term partnership; partnered Aquarians will benefit from infusing their current relationship with more fun and enjoyment.
While you may have been feeling alone or unsupported, Jupiter’s influence from mid-year forward can change all that, and dramatically. Happy people, or those who seem to have your interests at heart, can enter your life, or existing relationships can improve significantly. From September forward, your ideas can be especially brilliant, particularly in partnership. There can be great innovations in your life, with new ways to communicate and move your life forward. There can be a lot of activity with writing, public speaking, new interests, and exciting friendships. You’ll require stimulating educational experiences now. Be open to making changes in your regular routines. Full overview.
2014 continues the theme of learning to take your work hat off, dear Pisces, and truly enjoying yourself. In the first half of the year, and particularly from mid-March to mid-July, avenues open to express yourself in creative and romantic ways. This is a time for exploring your desires, different ways of “playing”, and enjoying yourself in the process. By mid-July, ideally you’ll have found more ways to entertain yourself and others, and the focus shifts to work, health, and daily habits. Opportunities to expand your reach and to improve your health abound. The year ahead is one of work and play, dear Pisces, but you may take either to excess at times! Love can be fun and casual this year. Intimacy can be a challenge, especially from February forward, but also an area of important life lessons. Admirers can be plenty – you’re coming across very well! Relationships with children can prosper in 2014. If you need to make repairs or simply to improve the enjoyment factor in these relationships, this is an excellent time to do so. Energies of 2014 can bring out the escapist in you, particularly in the first half. Consider if this is doing more harm than good. Saturn helps out again this year by reminding you, gently, of your responsibilities. Work with this energy in order to come to a healthy balance. Use May’s energies to stabilize a romance, monetize a hobby, join a higher learning program to upgrade your skills (especially creative ones), or make travel plans. Wonderful energy is brought to your work, daily routines, and health endeavors from mid-July forward. Especially from September on, your natural talents and skills are in high demand. If you’re looking for work, this is an excellent time for opportunities. It’s also strong for innovative new health and wellness routines. Money from work can improve or increase. This is a time for breakthroughs in your practical life. You bring more confidence and energy to your work and to your daily life as well as self-improvement efforts. A money-making or work idea may very well be golden at this time! Watch for overload, but do take advantage of this time to make real improvements. More profitable business areas this year include online, technology, creativity, health, and the service industry. The second half of the year especially is a time when your work ethic is recognizable and is integral to improving your income.
Financial matters can nag at you from time to time this year, however. The desire for more predictability may not be fulfilled this year. You’re challenged to think outside of the box. Shared money and resources as well as loans and debts are areas of flux and change. This is a time for settling debts as much as possible. From March to mid-May, work on anger issues regarding a spouse, intimacy, debts, and obligations to others, which can be sensitive spots for you. There can be a wonderful focus on education this year – more responsibility and effort are put forth. It’s an especially important period for upgrading your skills and doing research on professional goals, as you are coming to a professional peak of sorts beginning at the very end of 2014 and lasting until 2017.
