Your marital planet, Venus, is extremely important in identifying those times of the year that will be advantageous to you. Jupiter, the planet of love affairs, also has much to say about what will happen.
When Venus makes a favourable contact with Jupiter on the 7th of February, keep your antenna up for perfect opportunities for love. Karmic liaisons are likely to arise at this time, so don’t side-step any opportunity to develop friendships at this time. When Venus transits your zone of love affairs on the 26th of February, this also highlights an important new cycle for romance. On the 1st of March, Venus connects with Neptune, indicating idealism and feelings of romance, but also a tendency to overemphasise someone’s positive traits. Remember to take off your rose-coloured glasses.
Sudden and unexpected relationships after the 29th of March may catch you off guard. Someone who is fun and completely off-beat, who you meet in circumstances you would least expect, such as your workplace, may cause you to take a gamble on love. Tread carefully to see where this leads you.
The period after the 15th of April brings with it some wonderful Venusion energies. Love, romance and a good sense of self accompany wonderful responses from the public at large. You could, however, become rather obsessive about love by the 25th when Pluto enters the planetary combination. Try to pull back, get a handle on yourself, and balance your emotions with reasoning.
In May, between the 10th and the 15th, sexual feelings run high and you will want to experience that passion to its limits. Be careful not to overdo it.
Whether you are single or already involved or married, a new cycle commences after the 26th of June and brings with it a whole new positive spin on your relationships. Enjoy this as you will be able to take your relationships to a whole new level. Time away with the person you love is indicated after the 17th of August. Enjoy this quiet time with them.
On the 11th of September, 23rd of September, 5th of November and 16th of November, key planetary highlights occur, which lift your relationship prospects. Intensity, passion and deep communications are all part of the mix during these planetary cycles.
The year finishes with an excellent aspect from Jupiter to Saturn on the 13th of December. Use this time to cement your feelings with the one you love, and even if this seems to be somewhat serious in tone, it will bring a fine conclusion to 2013.
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.
Your strength this year lies in looking for new opportunities on the horizon. You can’t afford to do things the way that you have always done them before. This is made evident by Jupiter in the transformative zone of your horoscope for the first six months of the year. What this means is that you must research, investigate and seek out new opportunities. You need to inject a spirit of adventure in financial dealings, work and any other activity that you usually earn money from.
There are two other very important planets that influence your money- making powers throughout 2013: Neptune, which is in the creative zone of your horoscope, and Uranus, which is in your zone of work practices and daily routine.
These transpersonal planets indicate that you need to get into the flow of what’s happening on a larger scale. Working in a bubble, not being prepared to expand your awareness and rejecting new techniques for making money and managing your earnings is a path to financial suicide this year.
As the creative and spiritual planet, Neptune tells us that you need to open your mind and heart to new things. Involve yourself with other people, perhaps those younger than you who have their finger on the pulse of more cutting-edge technologies and ways of earning money. Uranus also shows us that progressive-minded people will be an asset to you, and this is a very important component in tapping your moneymaking powers throughout 2013.
Karma, luck and meditation
Strong karma patterns are definitely forming for you throughout 2013. First and foremost is the natural karma planet of Saturn transiting your Sun sign, which will continue for a couple of years. You will be learning many lessons, some of them hard, but certainly not outside the scope of your ability to cope with them and make the most of what these lessons have to teach you.
On a more focused note, your pending karma is spotlighted by the 9th. After the 10th of March, when the New Moon occurs in your future Karma sector, a great deal of forward-thinking and positive energy will arise, giving you an insight into where you are going and what you should be doing on your life path. There will be no less than five planets stacked in this zone of your horoscope, so you can expect this to be a busy time, with your intuitive powers at their peak.
After the 6th of July you will find your mind gravitating towards the past, questioning previous thoughts, words and deeds, and studying how they have impacted upon your current circumstances. By doing this, you will gain a great deal of insight into where you are and why you are feeling the way you do. If you keep an open mind, this will be a foundation for future understanding and wisdom.
