01-23-2017 to 01-29-2017
Flying under the radar? Things are about to turn around for ALL Libras this Friday, January 27 as the only Aquarius new moon of 2017 amps up the energy in your fifth house of passion, amour and creativity. What do you want to be known for before the year is through? With live-out-loud Jupiter in your sign until October 10, you're poised for major recognition. And while you're more than just a "brand," start sculpting your image and crafting your presentation in a more strategic way. With so much data jockeying for people's attention, you need to stand out in today's market—whether you're angling for the corner office or positioning yourself as an influencer. You can't escape visuals with this flamboyant new moon, so make sure your graphics, headshots and overall presentation just sing. Have you been down on love lately? As the zodiac's incurable romantic, this new moon helps you lose the unbecoming cynicism and prepare for a fresh start. This doesn't mean forgiving unconscionable behavior. Lead with your heart, but check in with your head for approval on any candidates that enter your sphere during this lunar event. Go ahead and gush, but keep some mystery about yourself. If this person is a keeper, there'll be plenty of time to tell each other your whole life stories. Couples can deepen their bonds and up those amorous feelings by doing more playful things together (in and out of the bedroom). Research a warm-weather get-away (hello, Barcelona beaches) or start a list of baby names (for whenever). If you're not getting your needs met, it's up to you to ask for what your heart is craving. And remember the old "catch more flies with honey" formula. That bait works a whole lot better than blame, guilt or anger.
Just be careful not to spread yourself too thin! Also on Friday, stern Saturn flashes a warning sign to your ruling planet, generous Venus. If you've got too many irons in the fire, you need to prioritize and pull out the ones that aren't doing anything to enhance your life or aren't likely to develop into anything useful. As for those ideas that could actually germinate and grow, focus on nurturing them. You're poised to catch the attention of some important players, but you can't be casual about it. Over the next few weeks, you could establish yourself as a force to be reckoned with—if you show up regularly and let people know that you're taking THEM seriously. Of course, if this is something you're pursuing outside of work, be careful not to ignore your other obligations in the process. Just because something major comes up last-minute doesn't give you carte blanche to throw your team into chaos to accommodate you.
Got a grudge against Cupid? How unlike you, Libra—the sign of peace, love and partnership! Maybe you've been burned too many times, or a bad apple recently spoiled your barrel of fun. But here's the thing: Deep down, you know you're still in the game, and you'd happily fall head over heels for the right Valentine. If you're attached, you may be questioning your bond, even eyeing some of the other local talent. STOP! The relationship you save could be your own. You can't force every duo to be dynamic, Libra, but you will have the chance to turn up the heat on at least one key connection. On Saturday, motivational Mars marches into Aries and your seventh house of partnerships for six weeks. The red-hot planet is sure to speed up the pace of your love life, but don't lose your head while you're following other bodily signals. Even if your urge to merge reaches a fever pitch, you need to exercise some self-restraint. Single Libras might be tempted to accept every invite and follow up on every "like" or "wink," but think quality over quantity. What's worse than a seriously bad date? Ten of 'em! With impulsive Mars in the driver's seat, you might be confused by all those birds in the hand. You could also be uncharacteristically aggressive, even competitive, while playing the dating game. Remember: At the end of the day you're still a Libra, and part of your charm is your ability to be subtle and a little enigmatic. In a rocky relationship? Don't lash out in a moment of passion. Should you find yourself clashing with your loved one(s), find your MIA tact and diplomacy. Even if anger or the green-eyed monster has temporarily seized control, resist hurling accusations. It'll be easy to misconstrue meaning between now and March 9, so give the benefit of the doubt.
