With Venus in your zone of secrets and low-key activities, your love life could start off a little slowly this year, but this doesn’t mean you won’t be active in contemplating how you can make this year a satisfying one romantically.
On the 17th of January, Venus enters your Sun sign, and Pluto, the intense and sometimes obsessive planet, is also in close proximity. As a result, you may find yourself engulfed in an ocean of feelings trying to deal with relationships. At this time, karmic planets such as Saturn are also influencing your zone of love affairs. You may need to fully digest some past relationship or experience that hasn’t yet been completely resolved. This could drain you of emotional energy and put you on edge.
As the year progresses, you’ll find that you have many lessons to learn about love, and because Saturn, the main influence on your zone of love affairs and friendships, is moving so slowly, you will need to carefully work through any relationship issues that are hindering your inner fulfilment.
One of the better times of the year will be when Venus activates your zone of creativity and romance around the 15th of April. There’s also an eclipse in your zone of friendships, and this too will have an influence on your relationships, throwing up a whole new set of circumstances and/or feelings. Once again, you may be overwhelmed and taking on too much responsibility. Delegate where necessary.
A steadying of your feelings can be expected by the 8th of June, with Venus and Saturn making excellent rapport with each other. If you are married or in a committed relationship, this is also an important transition as you will be able to come to some understanding. If you and your partner seem to be heading off in different directions, it is important to communicate to each other what you want in the future.
On the 7th of August, the 14th of September and the 17th of October, you can expect some rather important developments in your relationships. Try to keep a level head and not see life through rose-coloured glasses. Impulsiveness should be curbed at these times; you may want love so much that you’ll overlook the reality of the situation.
Work and money
It’s always necessary to gain an understanding of all the universal laws of abundance and success when dealing with money. When fully present and creative, you inject the spirit of enthusiasm and love in what you do, be it work or play, and your aura or electromagnetic appeal becomes so much stronger. It is a force that attracts people, opportunities and, of course, more money. Your destiny and karma can be significantly influenced by the way you think and the attitude you foster. This will in turn impact upon your moneymaking powers.
The charisma of Pluto continues to influence your Sun sign very strongly, and it’s through this extraordinary magnetism that you are able to attract the right sort of financial and professional opportunities throughout 2013. You’ll be able to create much more financial stability for yourself, but you must also realise that with power comes responsibility.
In the early part of the year, Mars is in you zone of income and it dominates your financial landscape. You’re almost aggressive in the way you want to earn money this year, especially at the outset, but be careful not to steamroll others in your quest for power and wealth. By using the art of diplomacy, gentle persuasion and the power of Pluto, you can coax people into your way of thinking and giving you what you want professionally.
Expect the unexpected with Uranus, which is also strongly influencing your career sector. Sudden twists and turns may end up working to your advantage, but you must be prepared to flow with these energies. When Mars, your profit planet, comes into contact with Uranus, there might be some very sudden events developing, which will have a strong impact upon your finances.
Some of the key dates to watch out for are the 23rd of March, the 1st of August and the 8th of December onwards. If you’re able to roll with the punches and not let your impulsiveness get the better of you, you can use these tremendous planetary forces of nature to ascend the heights of financial wellbeing.
Contracts and agreements are also an important component of making more money and harnessing the power within yourself to make the most of negotiations. This year, Neptune, another outer planet that moves very slowly, is influencing your power of communication and contractual arrangements. This could be a double-edged sword. On the one hand, it gives you tremendous creative and idealistic abilities; on the other hand, it may act to confuse and destabilise your circumstances.
The way to harness this energy is to keep focused on the bigger picture and not get too bogged down in the minute details. You must also be prepared to call a spade a spade and not let others hoodwink you. If, for the sake of expediency, you decide to let little things slide, you may find yourself in quicksand further down the track. Address each issue as it arises in your negotiations and you will gain the respect that is necessary to be successful this year.
An important date to watch is the 10th of October, or thereabouts, when Venus and Neptune move into what we call a ‘hard aspect’. You may speculate heavily at this time, but you will not be on top of your game. Tread carefully until you are clearer on every aspect of a deal.
Karma, luck and meditation
2013 will be an important turning point for you. Reflection and being good to yourself will new developments in your life.
The Karmic planets for you are Venus and Mercury. Your past Karma planet, Mercury, kicks the year off very strongly on the 1st of January. It indicates that you’ll move into the next twelve months with a strong sense that what you’ve done in the past, whether good or bad, is going to have an influence on your activities this year.
This is also highlighted by the fact that Venus, your future Karma planet, is in the company of Mercury at this time. Between the 1st and the 9th of January, consider how your past and your future are connected and how the fruits of your actions affect what you do and how you think.
Good financial karma can be expected around the 2nd of February, and your work will also be positively influenced by this planet on the 6th. Don’t waste time; go for your dreams.
