*Venus is currently retrograde in the sign of Capricorn (until January 31st).  Retrogrades encourage us to gestate, ponder upon the past (what we've learned/what we missed/what needs some follow through), and to strengthen our "internal" relationship and self-esteem.  For this reason, when we attempt to seek self-esteem outwardly through financial investments/purchases or through relationship, we often feel less than fulfilled and that item or person we sought to fill us up turns out to not to be our "answer" once Venus turns direct.  A valuable opportunity to hold your own space and to see/feel where you are while trusting that some treasures are lurking in wait for your very own self-discovery~

ARIES:   Mercury enters your 11th house of future goals and personal dreams through the 31st.  The future beckons but plenty of time and planning is available as Mercury retrogrades back through this area in February.  The Sun Venus connection delivers some special acknowledgement in your career or community.  The Full Moon brings closure, culminations and enduring structure to your home, personal life and family.  You are in the process of working out career/public goals, with relationship/partnership values, as Venus squares Mars this week.  The 1st week of March will herald resolutions to current dilemmas. *Venus encourages a gestation period financially/romantically in your life and career direction.

TAURUS:   Venus continues her backtrack and review in the areas of beliefs, spiritual development, media, publishing, teaching and travel, while making a beautiful connection with the Sun signaling good fortune and beneficial developments.  The Full Moon highlights these very areas of communications championing reliable support and agreement from important others in your world.  Issues of value and self-expression collide with the areas of your services, working environment and co-workers.  This is a process of integrating personal desire with your communication/writing/self-expression style that will find resolution as you head into March.   *Venus encourages a gestation period financially/romantically in publishing, promotions, legalities, media, travel, educational and foreign peoples.
