Michael OConnor Horoscope for the Week: January 9, 2015

Tip of the Week:

The human condition is in a critical state. Even amidst various victories, much of the old ‘business as usual’ attitudes and actions prevail. Worse yet, the rise of multi-nationalism over the past few centuries has produced a situation in which all nations or most are in debt to private interests. This is clearly a serious situation. Private interests have no reason to pay any allegiance to anyone but the major stockholders and in effect have very little if any responsibility to any other than itself. This is the epitome of megalomania but rather that simply exist in individual people, it exists in corporate entities which all at the same time have rights and privileges of individuals. Could it be any worse? That is at least partially why the middle class is all but dissolved and why most of the social programs that we so diligently and nobly won are so casually cut. Clearly, many in high places are not answering to the people, but to the shareholders.

The current planetary alignments and activity as a whole reveal the synchronicity of this crisis point we have reached. There is always the possibility of turning the tides in the favor or a more democratic momentum, but with so much secrecy and guile and outright deception coming from such high places, people are left confused, bewildered and fragmented. Where has the dignity and honor of integrity in high places gone? This year 2015 marks an important turning point. Among other things, what we can do to ‘do something about it’ is to come into a closer alignment with our own sense of authenticity, to get more fully in-tune with our nature. This is where Astrology can help as it reveals a natural psychology and is the source of the very notion human ‘nature’. The solutions we seek in the world are most certainly linked to our deliberate determination to re-align with nature, that which is within and without.

Aries (Mar 21 – Apr 20)
Now that all is said and done with the festive season and turn of the New Year, you are inclined to enter the slow lane. Your ambitions remain high but there is time yet for the momentum to build. A social mood is lingering however and more intimate gatherings perhaps in the glow of candlelight will align with your current cycles.

Taurus (Apr 20 – May 21)
You have entered a cycle of deep change. The good news is that while the process will be sure it will also be quite slow, to the tune of a few years. It is destined to lead you step by step closer to manifesting a fuller measure of your sense of individuality. In the short term, social and cultural interests are drawing you out to participate.

Gemini (May 21 – Jun 21)
With this New Year comes the call to new commitments. They include inspirations to bring imagination to the expression of latent talents. You likely remain busy and both need and want to attend to a variety of fronts. This will likely be true well into late summer anyway. So, this is a time to sample and experiment with new possibilities.

Cancer (Jun 21 – Jul 22)
Contending with some pretty powerful energies and players is commanding your full attention. They are prompting new considerations. Education, training or some kind of apprenticeship is featured. You are determined to find a way out, or upward and onward and it is activating you to decipher the best strategy. Be receptive to external resources and opportunities.

Leo (Jul 22 – Aug 23)
Designs and new strategies are a feature of tending to the details these days. A creative learning curve is implied and it will endure for quite a while. All being well you have laid claim to gifts and talents over the past few years that were waiting to be claimed for a long time. Now your task is to persevere with them. Meanwhile, the time is right to venture into new territory.

Virgo (Aug 23 – Sep 22)
There are times in life that call for more faith than others and this may be one of them. You are feeling the power yet it may seem like it is here one moment and gone the next. To deepen your sense of security, destiny requires that you face whatever fears are blocking you from laying claim to gifts, talents and powers that are ready to be identified and retrieved.

Libra (Sep 22 – Oct 22)
You have entered a time in your life that requires new knowledge. Improving your social skills is featured. Fortunately, you are in the mood to do just that, at least at this time. Your health is an important consideration within it all. Whether it is simply to feel inspired and purposeful again or to move away from stressful roles, your focus is linked to feeling better in all respects.

Scorpio (Oct 22 – Nov 21)
You are bound and determined to expand your position in the world and you need leverage. Knowledge is power and you want your share of both. Fortunately you are in an inventive and innovative cycle. Inspired to exercise your imagination there is probably no shortage of good ideas available. The biggest challenge is establishing a solid foundation. But you can and will.

Sagittarius (Nov 21 – Dec 21)
Generating new ideas and key contacts is featured as the year begins to build momentum. You are determined to take clear, deliberate steps. Yet, it may feel like you have to reach or dig down deep to even touch the ground. Consider that you are meant to stand firm on the deck of a ship destined to set sail; solid underfoot yet within a realm of fluid motion.

Capricorn (Dec 21 – Jan 19)
You have entered an interesting cycle. On one hand you feel the spirit of pioneering adventure beckoning. Yet on the other you feel called within to nurture new dreams. Much of what once excited you and to which you felt committed no longer holds the same appeal. The time has come to look to others for inspiration anyway and perhaps guidance as well.

Aquarius (Jan 19 – Feb 19)
The 4 to 6 weeks prior to our birthday is often an ideal time to coast and dream, perhaps travel and escape in preparation for a new cycle. At worst it can be a time of confusion. It is generally wise to at least rest and yet also to prepare for the new cycle set to begin. You have entered a time of returns and in as much as you have listened within rewards are coming…soon.

Pisces (Feb 19 – Mar 20)
A steady expansion of new horizons, networks and friendships are yours to enjoy. Yet, it is as much about business as it is about social opportunity. Many plans and dreams are brewing and while you are able to act on some of them, others remain on hold. Trust this flow and act on what is available. Allow for a varied approach to nurture confidence.
