HOROSCOPES FROM 'THE VISUAL ARTISTS NEWSHEET'  2/5


Capricorn Capricorn (22 December – 19 January)

Recently there has been intense planetary emphasis on life’s practicalities with Venus, Mars, Mercury, Jupiter, the Sun and new moon all meeting in your eleventh house of hopes and wishes, friendship and fun. These energy blockages, that you feel due to the domination of Jupiter’s high rising can be expelled with a dose of salts, then tell your self “I do not need an excuse to hire a mini digger and will dig a hole were I please”. Go with your instincts and you will be fine.

Aquarius Aquarius (20 January – 18 February)

Over the past year, frustrations and unpredictable situations have been unnerving; you have a fantastic chance this year to establish yourself on a new level, with Jupiter moving through your house of fame and honours possibly into a new development. Don’t take anything personally, check the smoke alarms and do your best to make some improvements.

Pisces Pisces (19 February – 20 March)

Pisces, this month drama and tension will be all around you, but you will experience the more positive effects. Due to Polystyrenes ability to absorb regret, correct disposal of it is crucial. When burning, make sure not to use a fireplace with a back boiler, as the last thing you want is to spread bad feelings through you heating system. Do not allow recent disappointments affect your work. When ideas fall on stony ground, persevere. Treat monotonous admin philosophically. When applications only lead to disappointment, feel thankful you weren’t applying for parole.

Aries Aries (21 March – 19 April)

Aries, this year will begin with lots of energy and drive, making it easy to accomplish your goals. Jupiter, the giver of gifts and luck, will act like a kindly uncle who will arrive with his middle pocket stuffed with goodies. The Full Moon in Taurus on February 5 may be uncomfortable and stressful. With six planets swimming through your warm, friendly waters, distillation is the key to understanding your sometimes Jeckle and Hyde life. Try distinguishing between the two by making the ‘bad you’ wear glasses and your leadership qualities will come to the fore.

Taurus Taurus (20 April – 20 May)

2007 could be wonderful for you dear Taurus, one you may remember for a very long time. Does this mean Uranus also turns direct on Sunday, bringing some interesting new friends your way? Possibly! With a crowd of little happy planets all singing – “Let’s recognise that slugs are fungus that live off evil spirits.” In your heart of hearts you already know this. But ask yourself where are they coming from? How you deal with this, may be critical in future relationships.

Gemini Gemini (21 May – 20 June)

Gemini, as this year begins, patience and fortitude are required to deal with frustrations and strong emotions. Be prepared to face changes that you have no control over. Do not let your current financial instability get you down. Resourcefulness has always been one of your best assets. Treat shoplifting from B&Q not as desperation, but as a sport. No doubt about it, February should turn out to be one of your most glorious months this year.

Cancer Cancer (21 June – 22 July)

Dear Cancer, Many factors will affect your love karma this month, relationships from previous lifetimes are a bigger influence on your love life that you realise. On the weekend of February 10 stagnant stink-think and frustrating cramps will suddenly be resolved. Your intuition and creativity will be heightened, by 22 February you’ll be ready to move on and put the 007 into 2007.

Leo Leo (23 July – 22 August)

Dear Leo! This month holds the luckiest day of the year. A new moon in Scorpio on February 20 inspires you to express yourself, the day when Jupiter, the good fortune planet, is due to meet up with the mighty Sun! You have always known that dance holds the key to heal this sick world. It is now time to share these feelings of joy. This February you will channel this creative energy through free-form moves, in the name of love.

Virgo Virgo (23 August – 22 September)

Virgo, you are about to enter a very busy, magical year. Remember, if it doesn’t kill you, it will make you stronger, Unstable emotions on February 25 could threaten to interfere with livestock. There will be a tendency early in the week of February 20 to be overconfident. But try not to include neighbours pets in your plans as this could increase bad karma. During the week, watch out for misunderstandings.

Libra Libra (23 Sept – 22 October)

This month should bring you lots of wonderful financial news – some of the very best! Before you run out to buy a few lotto tickets, wait, because there’s actually no need. Try to refrain from organising your life with post it notes, as their stickiness will always let you down. Buy a diary and keep it with you at all times also buy a wall calendar with uplifting pictures on it such as kittens and puppies. The money you receive now will be money you earn, not money you win as a prize or that is given to you any other way. This has to be an exciting development, Dear Libra – because no one can say you don’t deserve it – you’ve earned every penny, so at family weddings repeat the mantra, “but it is a proper job”.

Scorpio Scorpio (23 October – 21 November)

The Full Moon in Taurus at the start of this month may bring positive outcomes from your past experiences. But be careful to consider the needs of others. Later in the week, experiment with ways to use positive thinking and creative visualisation to manifest what you want. On 8 February when spending another night in watching the TV pretend your on a cramped long haul easy jet flight. After a few hours upgrade yourself to first class by reclining on the couch. Rarely have you had this much powerful cosmic support.

Sagittarius Sagittarius (22 November – 21 December)

Dear Sagittarius, this February you will be crowned zodiac royalty when Jupiter, the giver of gifts and luck, will move into your sign. But it looks like you’ll want to remain alone for a while if only to take a moment to collect your thoughts. There will be a party going on outside your dressing room door; and although you’ll be invited to join in, you will be busy stacking planets up in your twelfth house. Love and compassion seem to weep from every pore of your being on Wednesday – you will feel in the mood to give, so cover your tracks and think, “why not?”.
