Aquarians can best be described as unique. Anyone born this week likes being different. Many astrologers refer to the Aquarian as someone who is marching to the beat of a different drum.

These fixed sign individuals like being different. They need plenty of freedom and also need to be involved with plenty of people

Aquarians are unusual people. They like being different and certainly don’t care for the ordinary or usual type of lifestyle.

This sign is ruled by Uranus, the planet of the extreme and unique. The ancient astrologers also claim the Aquarius is ruled by Saturn; the Saturn-ruled Aquarian could be more stable, serious and more in tune with the ordinary.

But most Aquarians in this day and age are into the latest fad, the newest ideas and the need for plenty of freedom to be different and be their own persona. They get along best with Gemini and Libra people.

People born this week: Paula Deen, January 19, 1947; Melissa Rivers, January 20. 1968; Jack Nicklaus, January 21. 1940; Robin Richards, January 22, 1987; Princess Carolyn of Monaco, January 23, 1957; Natasha Kinski, January 24, 1966; Alicia Keys, January 25, 1981; Wayne Gretzky, January 26, 1961.

The new moon will be in Aquarius on Monday. That makes next week a great time for beginning new projects. The best day is Wednesday when the moon will be in Pisces and making good aspects to Saturn.

Wondering why it is best to start new ventures in a new moon? The answer is the heavens will be on your side because there is usually less emotional conflict at that time of the month. The less conflict or emotional nonsense, the better. You can concentrate on the important moves you must make instead of getting caught up in other things.

Mars remains in Virgo and Jupiter in Taurus offering Capricorn an advantage because of the good energy heading that way.

Aries (March 21 to April 20) This is not the week to make a move without some thought. Keep in mind that the Mars-ruled Aries often takes action without due thought. You may feel the urge now to just make some moves and it is a good time, but think about it before you leap or you will once again pay the price.

Taurus (April 21 to May 20) It could be possible you are not feeling the full force of Jupiter, which is now in Taurus, because it is opposite Saturn in late Libra. That can put a damper of your moods. It is necessary now to pull responsibility and fun together. Look for new people to come into your life and cheer you up.

Gemini (May 21 to June 20) Mars remains in late Virgo, which creates possible conflict around you. So try looking at the bright side of whatever happens. Avoid arguments that you can’t win and use the energy to meet some interesting new pals. It is a great time for that kind of business.

Cancer (June 21 to July 20) If you listen to your inner self you must know that your problems will soon pass and you will win the game. A new love could be just around the corner, and if you aren’t interested make it clear in the beginning. A new relationship now, whether business of pleasure, could be a joy.

Leo (July 21 to August 20) This is not the week to overextend yourself. You should separate from some of the longtime pals who have turned negative. A new adventure is just around the corner to keep your mind in shape, so join a new group after the new moon next week. A new outlook on your life is on the way.

Virgo (August 21 to September 20) Although last week may have been a challenge, it keeps you on your toes. You can expect some people around you to be over the moon, but don’t get caught up in that nonsense. Take life seriously this week, especially at work, and don’t trust too many people.

Libra (September 21 to October 20) There are no words to outline your latest opportunities. You will be offered some golden opportunities and if you can take them it will work well. Just wait until the new moon on Monday and then sign on the dotted line. The more responsibility involved, the better for you.

Scorpio (October 21 to November 20) To take on more than you can handle this week would be unwise. Just hold off any decisions until the new moon on Monday. You will have a much better chance to win the game you are playing if you just make some fast, but well thought out plans. If in doubt, just wait a day or two.

Sagittarius (November 21 to December 20) If you have someone to forgive and forget, this is the time to get it over with. In dealing with this matter the smartest thing to do would be to stay positive and don’t ask advice. You are smarter than anyone else, so follow your heart and avoid arguments. You won’t win this week.

Capricorn (December 21 to January 20) Look at your long-range plans and then start an agenda so you can get there as soon as possible. There is more money and power in making a well-planned move than staying in a boring space. You are making some changes and they should all carry you to a higher place.

Aquarius (January 21 to February 20) If you are making important decisions this week, then you are right on schedule. If you have any doubts, then wait another week. A move, either physical or mental, will put you in a much better space in the near future. Just bite the bullet and make the move after the new moon on Monday.

Pisces (February 21 to March 20) Expect your creative life to really kick in as Neptune is about to move into Pisces. This will add to your intuition, so prepare to become more aware than ever of what other people want from you. This ability will make you a person very much in demand, so get prepared. It will be fun.
