Did the shadow side of love come knocking on your door? Talking of retrograde planets, communication planet Mercury will be retrograde for most of February (7 th -28 th ) so pay particular attention when driving, signing contracts, negotiating agreements and in all types of personal and business communication.

The Year of the Green Horse

The new moon in Aquarius on the 31 st January marks the Chinese New Year - the Year of the Green Horse or Wood Horse. Those born in 1930, 1942, 1954, 1966, 1978, 1990 and 2002 are all born in the Year of the Horse. In Eastern philosophy, the Horse is considered to be energetic, charismatic, intelligent, self-reliant, good with money and fond of travel, roaming from one place or project to the next. This incessant activity and searching often disguises a deep-seated desire to fit in though paradoxically, Horses feel a simultaneous yearning for independence and freedom.

Horses generally have good health, due to their positive outlook in life and huge amounts of energy. They thrive on being the centre of attention and love to entertain a crowd with their humour and wit. In love they are spontaneous and ardent and tend to throw themselves into relationships without too much thought.

On the career front, horses enjoy positions where they can interact with others. They prefer to lead rather than follow, are effective communicators, can grasp new subjects with ease and dislike routine. Their impatient and headstrong streak can cause difficulty in the workplace and they often have short tempers. Another problem is that Horses don’t always finish what they start, being constantly on the lookout for the next exciting opportunity.

Once Horses have matured and found some kind of inner peace, they tend to curb their wandering tendencies, develop stronger, more stable relationships and learn to appreciate what is in their own backyard.

2014 will be a year when Horses can really shine, both personally and professionally and overcome any recent setbacks or obstacles. For the rest of us, the Year of the Horse is a chance to develop our own sense of adventure and do something fresh, exciting and spontaneous. Wood is the element of spring, when plants have new growth. And, in the Five-Element Chinese Cycle (Wood to Fire to Earth to Metal to Water to Wood), Wood comes before Fire and so has a favorable relationship with it - when you stoke a fire with wood you get a big blaze. 2014 is a year with the potential for lucky breaks when you can take more chances than normal and strike out in new directions.

Featured Sign-Aquarius

From the 20 th January to the 19 th February the Sun travels through fixed air sign Aquarius, noted for its egalitarian nature, progressive ideas and humanitarian bent. Aquarius is the eleventh sign of the zodiac with keywords “I am different” and “I am detached”. Aquarians are both radical and immovable at the same time. They will often espouse a social or religious movement such as feminism, Christianity, Buddhism or environmentalism and then remain committed to it for the rest of their lives. Those born under the sign of the Water Bearer often look to the future and have fine minds and a higher vision for society. Many Aquarians excel in the areas of science, technology and politics. At best they use their cool headed idealism to serve humanity. Negatively, Aquarians can be detached and aloof with a rebellious or fanatical streak. In medical astrology, Aquarius rules the calves, ankles and general circulation. When Aquarians are out of balance they can suffer from varicose veins, sprained ankles, irregularities of the heart action and fluid build-up. The Aquarian colours are turquoise, aqua and silver. Aquarius’s greatest lesson is to learn to care for and relate to individuals rather than groups.
