By Milky Way Maid

Reminder: Venus is in Pisces now.

Earth-Sky has January 2012 guide to visible stars

Read Earth Sky article for a guide to identifying the lights in the sky for January: Venus, Jupiter are en route to their March conjunction. Link:

The Sun in Capricorn squares Saturn at 29 degrees Libra at 4:19 pm Thursday. A likely time for mass frustration, although it can result in a more focused drive to achieve a particular goal. Not a good time to start a new venture, but it does present challenges if you like that kind of thing.

Venus in Pisces sextiles Pluto at 8 degrees Capricorn at 3:32 pm Friday. This Venus-Pluto sextile could indicate a good opportunity to obtain loan approval, or increases in cash payouts. On a personal level, you could get a lot better acquainted with a special someone.

The Sun enters humanity-loving Aquarius on January 20 at 11:10 am. People with the Sun in Aquarius express an appreciation of the special gifts of everyone they meet. Aquarians are awed by technology, and have a great faith that mankind will continue to progress.

The Sun in Aquarius squares Uranus at 1 degree Aries at 8:20 pm Saturday. You might see upsets in sports events or in the political scene. While Uranus often signifies falls or accidents, the kinds of falls with the Sun involved probably will not result in broken bones. Uranus specializes in knocking those with pretensions of grandeur flat on their fannies.

Looking ahead: Mars will have its Retrograde Station on Jan. 23 at 23 degrees Virgo. Not a misprint; 23 and 23 is the key number.

Treat your mate to a night out on the town Friday (leave about quarter after 8). Take charge of the kids Saturday morn.

SAGITTARIUS - Nov. 22-Dec. 21 - You probably won't be able to reach friends Monday morning, and if you do, they won't be able to help you anyway. It is too easy to misplace belongings Tuesday.

PISCES - Feb. 18-March 19 - Chiron entered your sign with the New Year, where it will remain till 2019; be careful of your feet.
