Your Milky Way Horoscope Jan. 19-25, 2014
By Milky Way Maid
Dear Readers: I missed a week of this month's columns due to health problems. I was in the Intensive Care ward for a few days with a serious issue and my doctors have put me on medication while ordering more lab work. Please keep me in your thoughts for the near future. Thank you.
The Sun enters Aquarius at 10:51 pm Sunday. Aquarians are natural group members and sometimes group leaders; they accept that various members have different roles to fill in any healthy group dynamic. Aquarius natives almost always have an independent streak, sometimes being contrary for no reason at all except to express their “I gotta be me” attitude. Is often able to make members of a group feel included in determining the agenda for the group, so they willingly share info and lend their energies to the group project. Aquarians seem to understand human weakness, and are willing to have the group carry a member who is going thru a tough time. Aquarians look forward to all the new technology and scientific breakthroughs that the future brings, while remaining firmly grounded in the present time. This is a fixed sign, and don't forget it! They are not flighty even though they look forward to change. They can be the most steadfast of friends and spouses. Famous people with the Sun in Aquarius include: Lewis Carroll, Charles Dickens, Thomas Edison, Abraham Lincoln, Gertrude Stein, W C Fields, Carol Channing, Franklin Roosevelt, Mia Farrow, and Wolfgang Mozart.
Mercury at 20 degrees Aquarius trines Mars in Libra at 9:57 pm Friday. Mercury with Mars in a positive aspect gives excellent hand-eye coordination, especially in sports and athletics. It is also a help in technical jobs and in creating crafts of fine workmanship.
Mercury at 22 degrees Aquarius squares Saturn in Scorpio at 6:56 pm Saturday. This could mean the arrival of bad news or at least serious news, and serious discussion of that news flash. You may have to accept a delay in progress on some matters on your agenda. Nevertheless this transit is good for focusing on detailed work, such as in handcrafts or technical stuff.

Readers can follow not only their Sun sign horoscope but also their Ascendant for further clues to how your week will develop.
