January 1-15, 2010 Horoscopes by Arlene Nimark

Friday, January 1, 2010. I would like to wish all my readers a very Happy and Healthy New Year. This day will bring thoughts of hope and change with it as the Sun Mercury midpoint will be 22 ½ to Uranus. This theme of change echos through the planetary picture of Mars + Pluto = Vulcanus and can bring plans for big changes this year. This planetary combination also indicates that hostile situations in the world can escalate today. At the same time, Mercury + Saturn/Pluto = Sun, as the Sun is 45 to Jupiter, and today the talk will be about increasing savings and financial budgeting for the new year. Since the Sun will be 11 ¼ from 0 cardinal this will be on the minds of many around the world.

Saturday the 2nd of January, Venus will be midpoint the Moon's Nodes and Hades, and there will be some who are coming together for sinister financial dealings or newcomers entering the business of prostitution. Be careful of being pick pocketed as Venus is 45 to Neptune. With this combo there is also an increase of cyberspace thefts. On a positive note it's a good day to be lazy.

Sunday, January 3rd, begins with Mercury + Neptune = Sun, relaxation, reading the Sunday papers and spending the morning deciding whether to go to the movies, the museum or have brunch with some friends. For those who are traveling on that day, there will be frustration due to delays, as Mercury will be 22 ½ to Uranus and the midpoint of these two planets is Saturn. With this planetary configuration try to stay calm, since at the same time Mars will be 135 to Pluto and Vulcanus is at the midpoint of both. A rage can erupt with destructive force.

January 4th is Monday blue Monday as everyone goes back to work. The day will not be too bad as Venus will be 45 to Jupiter and Sun will be conjunct Mercury leading to financial optimism. Be very careful since nothing is as it seems and calmness and optimism can change in the blink of an eye with Sun, Mercury + Uranus = Pluto. We all know that Sun and Mercury combined with Uranus creates erratic and unstable changes, and Pluto can relates to investments, as well as power plays. This planetary combo brings tension due to unforeseen changes.

Tuesday, January 5th, has Mercury conjunct Venus, at the midpoint of Hades and Apollon bringing financial losses, and fear of poverty is the talk of the town. Midday, the Sun will be 22 ½ to Uranus, nervous tension permeates the air all afternoon due to the financial climate. On the 6th of January, there will be reason to relax for a day as Mercury will be semi-square Jupiter, and as we hear some optimistic news related to unemployment. Unfortunately, the news is momentary and temporary.

On Thursday, January 7th, Venus will be 22 ½ to Uranus bringing financial uneasiness, but this combo is good for creativity. The Sun will be 22 ½ to Poseidon, a day to invest in your spiritual being. This will pay off in the long run. Today, it is important to take a moment and reflect on where you have been and where you are going, especially late in the afternoon as Mercury hits the lunar eclipse degree. Do not attempt to force your will on anything or anyone at this time but just look, listen and feel.

Friday the 8th has Mercury semi-square Neptune. Since Mercury is retrograde it had already been here back on December 8th and 9th, 2009. This means that you may find the truth about what had really occurred on or during these two days of last month. At the same time, the Sun will be 22 ½ to the midpoint of Uranus and Hades. On the negative side of this planetary combo, a day of danger and peril, and unusual deaths can occur. On a positive note, at least for us astrologers, we may experience a higher than normal volume of clientele. We will also be experiencing Saturn + Mars = Pluto, layoffs may increase due to the economy.

Saturday, January 9th, we have 0 cardinal + Uranus = Sun, a day on which sudden events can occur anywhere in the world. Uranus + Hades = Venus, and with these two planetary pictures it would be wise to be careful today, including into the evening. Hades and Uranus show sudden dangers, add Venus, and it can bring peril or danger while seeking pleasure. If out shopping watch your money. I recommend you cease doing any financial dealings online since cyber-thievery is on the increase.

Sunday the 10th, though Saturn is not deemed retrograde until the 13th of this month, it has come to a standstill as it reaches the degree and minute of its retrograde position. This means frustration, frustration and more frustration, especially since this station semi-squares the position Mars held when it went retrograde with a two minute orb. Mars + Uranus = Sun, and it can be a day of sudden events, from a car accident to a major explosion.

On Monday, January 11th, Sun will be conjunct Venus, a day of money and pleasure as well as right and wrong. Since it is 22 ½ to Hades, and Hades is midpoint Saturn and Uranus, it can be a day of financial losses and deception. At day's end, the Sun Venus conjunction will be on the Mercury station retrograde degree, and this means that the piper wants to be paid. Many will be receiving their credit card bills, and will be jolted awake to what Christmas will really cost them. OUCH!

Tuesday the 12th has the Sun Venus conjunction at 22 ½ cardinal, and since they are on the cardinal axis on one end of the spectrum, there can be peace and harmony in the world. On the other hand, Sun, Venus + Neptune = Uranus, be careful of the flim - flam man. Again, I must warn you that paying your bills online can be dangerous.

Wednesday January 13th Saturn is deemed retrograde. Be careful what you do with your money, because Pluto + Mercury = the Saturn station retrograde degree. Budget planning is a must at this time. Sun, Venus, Neptune and Uranus are dancing with each other through the 16th, changing positions only slightly.

On January 14th, we have a Solar Eclipse of 25 Capricorn 01, dancing around with Venus, Uranus and Neptune. This heralds an increase in cyber-searches for that perfect mate, or next partner as some romances loss their fizzle.

Friday the 15th. We finally see the end of another Mercury retrograde. Mercury goes direct today. Be careful as Mars will be 15 fixed, on the cardinal axis, as anger, and rage, is the name of the game on this day.

In three days, we experience Saturn retrograde, the Solar Eclipse, Mercury direct, and Mars on the cardinal axis -- formula for problems and trouble in the world.
