Weekly Horoscope for Friday, January 15, 2010, #801 - BY ERIC FRANCIS

Aries (March 20-April 19)
Did I ever mention that one of the reasons I like writing horoscopes is how subversive they are? Being aware of astrology puts people at a distinct advantage. I get to propose ideas that subvert the dominant paradigm -- which is exactly what your charts say you're up to; or what you have available. These days you're dancing to the beat of a creative drummer that nobody else knows exists. This exploration is giving you ideas about yourself, as well as approaches to political or professional situations that lately have shown no sign of abating in their weirdness. You, however, are poised to take advantage of a turn of events that others are bound to find distressing or impossible to deal with; and as a result, exceed something you were certain was a limit on your success.

Taurus (April 19- May 20)
The thing about your old beliefs is that you couldn't find yourself in them. The thing about your new beliefs is that you're right at the center of them. Let this be your guide to wider mental and geographic horizons, and to your notion of success. Despite many odds against you, the ways of the past that long predate your birth are yielding to your willpower and influence. Here's the thing to remember: while old beliefs can exist, and while they can guide our actions in ways that are not relevant to the present moment, the past itself does not exist. Or rather, it doesn't exist, if we notice that fact. Lately you are noticing; it's like you've climbed up onto an island of the future. Take a look around: this is where the journey begins.

Gemini (May 20- June 21)
The thing about agreements is that when they are made consciously, they can be unmade. If they are made unconsciously, they have to be sorted out carefully before they are unmade, because nobody really understands what they implied. However, you know what you want from a particular situation and you can go a long way from stating that plain-Jane simple and clear such that a plant could understand it. The thing is, it's likely to be something you haven't said yet; you may not have said it in the context of this conversation, and you may not have ever articulated it clearly at all. This is a great opportunity; and don't stop here. You are finally figuring out what is important to you, and it's about time. Now, put that knowledge to work for you.

Cancer (June 21- July 22)
Friday's solar eclipse in your opposite sign definitely represents a shift in a relationship, and I hope you're clearly perceiving the potential. It's possible that some change in the structure of things means that it's time to move on, but it's more likely that those involved will move onto a new level of awareness and a new kind of involvement. There seems to be some kind of incentive involved here; I suggest you figure out what it is, and keep it at the front of your mind when you're making decisions. There are no more throwaway relationships in your life. I'm not saying there ever were, but now each person you become involved with needs to have a space that is their own, and be considered a lifetime endeavor.

Leo (July 22- Aug. 23)
You cannot only reorganize your work patterns now; you can go to the meta-level and consolidate your methods and systems. Indeed, that's the theme of the hour, and there will be many benefits for doing so. It would, in fact, be wise and ethical to gear your motivations toward efficiency and profit, as functions of one another. They need to increase together, which will have an added benefit of ease. Is it really possible to make things easier, cheaper and smoother? Actually, yes. Part of how you'll be doing this is by paying close attention to your environment: in particular, your technological environs, and to one person who is a highly effective teacher, but who you may have only caught on to the wisdom of recently.

Virgo (Aug. 23- Sep. 22)
How do you really feel about sex? Do you secretly wish you could take off your socks? Do you wish you could take a shower right afterwards, but it's too rude? Or would you rather stay covered in your scent the whole day? Do you find the talking part as hot as the physical part? Do you like the risk of making someone guess what you want? Do you secretly swim in the direction of that which is forbidden, just because that makes it better? Yes, yes, I thought so. Your charts are super-sexy (as they would say in Germany) right now. I hope this means you are feeling equally sexed; and in terms of getting what you want, it's far likelier if you go for exactly what you want; what, and with whom.

Libra (Sep. 22 - Oct. 23)
The ground is moving under your life right now, and and that means that energy is rising up from the Earth. Feel the power, even as you wonder what will happen, or how you will deal with the changes. Feel your stability deepening, even as your structures are challenged. Notice how the brittle spots in your emotions are cracking and settling into place; and how the strong, flexible ones are standing strong and true. Don't be annoyed by that one lingering anxiety; don't let it hold you back; it's just a thought. The truth is, you are letting go of a past that you for a very long time took for granted. You took its power over you for granted as well; and that, finally is changing fast.

Scorpio (Oct. 23- Nov. 22)
Your concept of a partner or loved one has to change. In polite spiritual company one would say evolve, but I mean shift entirely. You're holding onto a lot of old ideas about this person, or trying to; they are pretty much useless as anything except souvenirs now. The past few weeks have taught you how deep into yourself you can go, without 'losing yourself' in there. You have seen how close to a seemingly dangerous possibility you can come without losing your nerve. All of this is helping you make a new map to your own mental process and psychic interior. Now, back to this other person: update your files; see them in their current context; and most of all, envision them on their chosen path to the future. Don't worry: this is much likelier to bring you closer than it is to draw you apart.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22 - Dec. 22)
Jupiter is about to change signs; it does this once a year, which is what makes you such a fashionable person. This year's fashion is the hot tub, the Jacuzzi, the hot springs bath or when all else fails, the bathtub. If you don't have a bathtub, make friends with someone who does, and trade them occasional peeks at your collection of Air Mail stamps. Maybe get a fish tank; check Craig's List and you'll find some gear at a reasonable price. Try to spend some time by the ocean. Drink water. I will remind you many times during the coming four seasons: water, water, water. One other thing: keep your frugal attitude. Don't do less, just do it for cheaper. Save your money for some kind of significant, imminent long-term investment in yourself.

Capricorn (Dec. 22- Jan. 20)
What an interesting eclipse today. I wonder what's going on with you. You may file your iStrology report via email; juicy is welcome. As for my aStrology report: you seem to be claiming back some significant aspect of yourself or your autonomy that was previously invested in a relationship. What you're verging on is experiencing yourself as a whole person: independently of any other person, or in the context of a relationship. This ability will provide you with many opportunities to go over ground you've covered, and in a sense taken, during the past three or four months, smooth out problems and accomplish your goals with much greater efficiency. The truth is, you have a job to do. Get your intentions behind that every day.

Aquarius (Jan. 20- Feb. 19)
There are no compromises to integrity. You will make errors; there may be learning experiences; there are certainly unexpected or unfamiliar circumstances. But there are no compromises. Either something is true or it is not. Either someone is honest or they are not. Either you listen to your fear, or you listen to your creativity, maintaining awareness of your shadow. I am rarely one to advocate seeing the world in such black-and-white terms, but this is a temporary tool or utility that will help you get where you are going: and you seem to be feeling your potential more palpably than ever. This includes your financial possibilities; your emotional depth; your ability to focus your thoughts like a laser and cut through nearly anything. That is power, which demands responsibility. And this, in turn, is precisely that impeccability is the theme of the hour.

Pisces (Feb. 19- March 20)
What a relief that Jupiter is coming home to Pisces on Sunday. It's been a dozen years since the ruler of our sign was there. Say what you will about Zeus, the deity; Jupiter the planet bestows protection, opens potential and offers a feeling of abundance -- particularly when in Pisces. Especially if you have a bit of Pisces in your chart, and you have more than a bit. On this and several other accounts, you're both gaining a sense of clarity and easing through a spell of isolation and a weird kind of psychic pressure that has stalked you for years. You have more decompression coming, but like coming up from deep underwater, you don't want to do it all at once. I do suggest that this weekend, you figure out a way to let your body and soul relax, take a deep breath and let your imagination do its thing.
