The AOL astrology department sent me this link, and my practical Capricorn Mars is thinking it’s a pretty good thing to be noticed by AOL. Jeff Jawer (owner of the Star IQ website) is a great astrology writer. On upcoming planetary cycles in 2007 he writes:
Controlled enthusiasm and well-managed risk-taking are major themes for 2007. Jupiter, the planet of opportunity and expansion, is back in its adventurous home sign of Sagittarius for the first time in 12 years. This is great news for long-distance travelers, truth seekers and those interested in advancing their education. Unconventional Uranus forms tense 90-degree angle squares with Jupiter on Jan. 22, May 10 and Oct. 9, which can trigger impulsive behavior. Brilliant breakthroughs in awareness are possible, but a desire to suddenly turn your life in a totally new direction should be tempered with a strong dose of common sense. It’s natural to be excited, restless and ready to move into a world of ideas and experiences you’ve never seen before, but the unexpected inspiration can disappear as quickly as it came if you act without proper preparation.
Serious Saturn is in Leo until Sept. 2. The planet of hard, cold reality in this expressive fire sign favors creativity and a playful spirit. However, the challenge is to apply inventive instincts in practical ways and with a lasting purpose in mind. When Saturn enters technically proficient Virgo on Sept. 2, it’s time to upgrade skills. Careful attention to detail becomes vital. Saturn’s presence in health-conscious Virgo is a signal to ensure that you eat properly, exercise and take your vitamins. Direct oppositions from the ringed planet to nebulous Neptune began at the end of August last year and repeat in both late February and late June this year. Sloppiness will be penalized at these times, so manage your life with greater care than usual. From another perspective, these are times to end old fantasies and begin working on new dreams.
Respect your ideals and highest aspirations this year and push yourself beyond the usual limits. Maintain focus on those desires and you can take a bit of heaven and bring it down to earth where you get to live with it every day.
Jeff also has posted forecasts for each astrological sign, and while you all know how I feel about sun sign astrology these are better written than most, so check it out.
