You’ll be charm personified from Friday on, when beatific Venus heads into Sagittarius until January 10. Venus visits your sign once a year, making you uber magnetic and influential. But just because you can attract people doesn’t mean they deserve to get past your red velvet ropes. Be discerning for a change, even if that makes your birthday party a smaller affair. Self-love is the order of the day while Venus roves your sign. You may wave farewell to a group that isn’t appreciating all that you have to give (be gracious, please). Why waste time with them anyway, when your Venusian powers can help you attract people who admire you AND deliver a great ROI? It’s an “ask, believe, receive” kind of week, so let the universe install an upgrade to your social life.
You’ll be more of a romantic risk-taker after Friday too. Get out of your head and back into bed. Those “Where do you see this relationship heading?” conversations will be much more enjoyable in the context of spicy pillow talk. And if the answer is “I have no idea,” carpe diem. As you well know, some people are merely guest stars in a chapter of your love story, and that’s just fine. Relax and play if you’re single…and if you’re spoken for, give yourself permission to flirt a little more. An innocent peck on the cheek can still bring a thrill if you get planted under the mistletoe with a look-but-don’t-touch crush.
There could certainly be some surprises in this arena, though. On Wednesday, unpredictable Uranus rocks your Love Boat, when it wakes up from a five-month retrograde in your house of romance, creativity and fame. If you don’t want that ship to capsize, you’ll definitely have to deploy some willpower…and watch your temper! Your anger could burn a small village midweek, and be a destructive force in your love life if you let it blaze unchecked. Of course, if you’ve been swallowing your true feelings for a while…look out! They could come out in quite an unedited rush. Find an uninvolved third party to hash out the turmoil before you take it up with your one-and-only. Version 2.0 of your rant will be far more constructive.
Do you know the difference between fame and notoriety? Let’s hope so, as Uranus’ U-turn could bring public attention your way. Hold yourself to a high standard, Archer. Like it or not, you’re a role model. Like Sag sister Nene Leakes, it’s the difference between Season 3 of “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” and the “Glee” years. Play it classy and you could find yourself zipping to the top of the charts in your chosen field. Lively discussions about money and work erupt this week, as Mercury decamps from your sign on Monday and moves into Capricorn for three weeks. Make sure you include some fiscal goals in that new-moon wish list. But don’t leave these in the “someday, maybe” realm. Download a book from the money-management section of Amazon, and find some real, live mentors who can share their secret to success. The path to fortune begins with an idea and continues with a conversation, so spark up dialogues with people who might be interested in partnering up for success.
