Monday January 26th - Sunday February 1st
Welcome to the Collaboration Station. You’ll be in the mood to share your toys this Monday, January 26, as the quarter moon in Taurus lights up your teamwork zone. “Plays well with others” is a label you embrace and eschew with equal enthusiasm. IF you adore people, you’ll move heaven and earth to make them happy and have them by your side. Otherwise, they might as well be invisible as far as you’re concerned. The question is: has Club Cancer become a wee bit too exclusive? If so, Monday’s waxing quarter moon (which is about balanced growth) gently chides you to open up enrollment to a few more qualified candidates. On the other hand, you may have allowed one too many a random prospect to slip beneath your red velvet ropes. Their presence may be watering down the power and intimacy of an organization you’re involved in. In cases like this, you may decide to regroup with a tighter-knit crew or call the slackers to the carpet and see if they’ll straighten up. This lunar cycle touches your tech sector too. Give your social media profiles a refresher, and your websites too, if you host any. Delete the tipsy Tweets and unflattering photos from Instagram and Facebook, but make sure you have some casual snaps up too so you also come across as accessible. This post

On Tuesday, your love life gets an infusion of adventure and spice when ardent Venus moves into compatible water sign Pisces until February 20. You’ll feel back in your element in the game of love, and far friskier, flirtier and freer than you have for a while. Double-happiness! Venus’ cosmic companion Mars is also touring Pisces until February 19. Together, they’ll occupy your ninth house of travel, truth, and titillating surprises. If you have a winter vacation planned, be sure to slip those lacy, racy and little black numbers into your suitcase. You could be dancing until dawn with a fellow resort-goer — or rolling around in the sand for a second honeymoon of sorts, if you’re coupled. Cross-cultural relationships simmer with stronger potential now too. Sparks may fly with a traveler who is rolling through your town or a local who comes from a different ethnic or religious upbringing. Have you been hiding your honest feelings from the one you adore? Whether harboring a crush, a secret or a straight up grudge, this Venus-Mars cycle wants you to come clean. A relationship that isn’t built upon honesty can never really thrive. Just note that Mercury will be retrograde until February 11, so your confession should be well timed and planned carefully. Don’t drop a bomb in a public setting or when the object of your affections is stressed or distracted. Waiting until Mercury turns direct on the 11th wouldn’t be a bad idea either. In the meanwhile, come clean to a confidant or therapist and plan the best way to deal with this bottled up information.
On Friday, retrograde Mercury makes a direct connection to the bold Sun in your eighth house of seduction and secrets. Careful, Cancer. Your judgment could blur in the game of love and you might even compromise your own ethics in the face of a strong attraction. Don’t ignore the ring on THAT finger or make excuses for someone’s troubled past. Loose lips sink ships. If you’ve been entrusted with secrets, keep ‘em locked in the vault. It would be all too easy to use these juicy tidbits as social currency near the weekend. Unfortunately, the end result may be the loss of an important friendship and earning yourself the reputation as untrustworthy!
