And if you're looking for love, money, friends, family-related success, etc., when the timing is right you can hit the jackpot. The Moon is in Leo, high in the sky, in the Eleventh House of hopes, dreams, and wishes - as well as friendships - trining Venus, planet of love, in Sagittarius. That means the planets are lined up to give you what you need, provided you earn it!
Fire Signs (Aries, Leo, Sagittarius):
Uranus in Aries, the Moon in Leo, and Venus in Sagittarius form a wide trine that will keep you busy, but it will be a good busy. One person or another will set into motion circumstances that will keep you on your toes, creating new connections to other people and possibly allowing you to make deeper inroads into a more profound romantic life. The people outside your circle may even say how lucky you are, but you will know that your efforts are based on hard work.
Earth Signs (Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn):
Mercury, Pluto, and the Sun are all posited in Capricorn. Capricorn is generally regarded as a business-oriented sign, which indicates a great deal of hard work. Pluto, the planet of wealth, will make sure your efforts aren't unrewarded. You may think that things are coming just a little too easy, but don't wait for the other shoe to drop! If you're getting more than you've gotten previously, you've earned it all the way.
Air Signs (Gemini, Libra, Aquarius):
The start of the year puts Jupiter, planet of success and good fortune, in lofty Gemini, high in the sky, forming a sextile with Uranus, the planet of luck, in fiery Aries... a truly lucky combination for you. In addition, one of the two incomplete Grand Trines involves Air Signs: Jupiter, planet of luck and success, in Gemini, the Ascendant in Libra, the sign ruling partnerships, and Mars, planet of energy and action, in Aquarius, planet of group activities as well as the future. This means energy within your intellect will create success. Your problem-solving abilities will be at their apex, helping to find solutions with remarkable ease.
Water Signs (Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces):
The second incomplete Grand Trine is a water trine involving the Midheaven in Cancer, the sign ruling home and family. There is also Saturn, planet of perseverance as well as career matters, in Scorpio, and Neptune, planet of romance and idealism, in romantic and psychic Pisces. This trine creates an environment of elevated spiritual and emotional strength. Aided by a Solar Eclipse in early November, this year is bookended by aspects that are conducive to happy reunions, joyous reconciliations, and strong romantic connections.
Remember, though: Don't sit back on your laurels and expect the cosmos to just materialize gifts out of thin air. The planetary aspects are there to be used and manipulated. And when stressful aspects appear, you can make the most of them as well. You are the master here, and the aspects for 2013 are just giving you a boost.
