Horoscopes for the week of January 19th  

#JeSuis…

“So Hum” means “I Am” in Sanskrit. When expressed, it is meant to identify your reality – a reality that is Universal. It is not a phrase used simply for self-identification, i.e., I Am Tracey; I Am a life coach; I Am my parents’ child. The broader meaning is that of being one with everything, i.e., I Am You; I Am We; I Am All. This is the mantra I was taught to internalize while meditating, inhaling “So” while exhaling “Hum,” and incorporating this practice has been my most successful attempt at being silent and present in a world that is noisy and disconnected. Through moments of serenity, I begin to see myself as part of a larger whole. I can see that I Am a living, breathing extension of all humanity.

This, I suspect, is what Martin Luther King, Jr. meant when he said, “I am what I am because of who we all are.”

#JeSuisCharlieHebdo; #JeSuisAhmed; #JeSuisNigeria; I am all of these things, and so are you dear reader. There is no divide. Just as we as a people can march peacefully for civil rights, we as a people do the world a disservice when we turn a blind eye to the denial of human rights. It is no longer acceptable to delay societal, environmental or individual progress by asking the same question time and time again, “What can I do?” Just do. One small step for man really is one giant leap for mankind, and the future is as much my responsibility as it is yours. Whether you are an artist, astrologer attorney, biochemist, executive assistant, mother, Muslim, teacher or student, your service is needed.

The Sun will move into the sign of Aquarius on Wednesday, January 20th, and shortly after, there will be a New Moon. People often confuse Aquarius with being a Water sign. But it is actually an Air sign that operates in the realm of innovation and ideas. The Zodiac symbol for Aquarius the Water Bearer is that of a man pouring Spirit and ether (not water) for humanity to consume. I should add that this sign has a reputation for giving the shirt off its back if needed, and they are the friendliest people you will ever meet. Combine this with Mars’ transit through the compassionate energy of Pisces, and we are further encouraged to find new ways of contributing to our fellow sisters and brothers. The Universe’s message is quite clear. Just do.

FYI, Mercury Retrograde starts the day after the New Moon, and will be in effect through February 11th. This means that you may have to do some extra planning before manifesting your vision for our future (yours and mine). But this is only one blip in a bigger process. Check your horoscopes below to see what’s in store, and don’t forget to read for your Ascendant sign too.

On the day you were born, all of the planets were positioned in the signs of the Zodiac – not just the Sun. To find out more about your full astrological make up, email Tracey for a personal Astrology reading at info@traceylrogers.com

Aries: You have got a few great ideas up your sleeve, Aries. But in order to see your dreams become reality, you will have to enlist the help of others. Most likely you are already doing the networking and socializing necessary for your aims. But just so you know, certain contacts made may fall through the cracks. When it comes to linking up with others, be sure to listen to your intuition. Folks may promise more than can be delivered. In fact, your vision might need some minor edits.

Taurus: It’s always around this time of year that work matters pick up. In fact, you may be doing a lot of networking in an attempt to increase your clientele and generate business. Working with others is highly favored, but don’t be surprised if you find that they are not on the same page. If not, adjustments will have to be made, but that’s no excuse to give your project the ax. It would behoove you, actually, to listen to what they have to say. Their vision of next steps may be clearer than yours. My next webinar on “EMPOWERED LIVING IN 2015” is scheduled for Thursday, January 22nd. Visit traceylrogers.com to register!

Gemini: Yours is a sign that genuinely enjoys socializing, especially when you meet extraordinary individuals who leave you feeling in awe. That may happen this week, and said individual may inspire you to join their team for the sake of charity. Most likely, you will appreciate the cause, and there’s a chance that it may inspire you to make your next career move. Get out and mingle Gemini, and feel free to drop names and share your wisdom. You might just inspire others to join your team. My next webinar on “EMPOWERED LIVING IN 2015” is scheduled for Thursday, January 22nd. Visit traceylrogers.com to register!

Cancer: You may appear as being more outspoken this week, Cancer. There’s also the chance that others won’t understand what all the fuss is about. Most likely, this activity stems around your desires and needs, whether from a monetary standpoint or an intimate one. If you are negotiating your values, you may have to keep up the good fight until March. But that doesn’t mean you should stop fighting. It also doesn’t mean you should rebel on without a cause. Choose your battles wisely. My next webinar on “EMPOWERED LIVING IN 2015” is scheduled for Thursday, January 22nd. Visit traceylrogers.com to register!

Leo: Romantic and business relationships will be highlighted this week, as you enter into discussions that focus on certain needs and desires with a significant other. Keep in mind that the conversation doesn’t have to take on dramatic tones, Leo. Compassion and light heartedness should be your strategy, especially since nothing will be resolved until March. Try not to attach yourself to an outcome, oh Fixed one. Instead, try to practice the art of intentional listening and understanding.

Virgo: Activity intensifies on the relationship front, but don’t be surprised if you experience some start/stop energy with regards to a partner’s intentions (this could be for business or pleasure). As a Virgo, you prefer to know the next steps ahead of time. But I’m afraid you will not have that luxury over the coming weeks. I would simply go with the flow for now. Besides, there’s a ton of other stuff that needs your attention, namely daily affairs you thought were resolved that come up for review.

Libra: A new romance could be what excites you this week, but try not to jump the gun, Libra. The “relationship” could lose its appeal quickly, which is why you should spend as much time tending to certain creative projects as you would wining and dining. To be honest, this latest crush could simply be a distraction that prevents you form tending to all of the other chores on your plate that must get done. I don’t doubt you are overwhelmed! Just take one step at time in work or pleasure. My next webinar on “EMPOWERED LIVING IN 2015” is scheduled for Thursday, January 22nd. Visit traceylrogers.com to register!

Scorpio: Nurturing yourself can go a long way Scorpio, and it starts at home. You may feel the need to decamp for a spell, spending more time indoors with loved ones. Family planning is also highlighted if you are looking to add a new addition. This could even speak to emotional renewal, where you make amends with yourself and an estranged relative. Keep in mind that you may not ease into these activities. Meanwhile, negotiations continue if you’re on the market for a new home.

Sagittarius: Activity on the home front intensifies, and there may be some level of discomfort or unease. Relationships with loved ones may feel iffy, especially if you have been estranged from a family member. Healing is available if you can learn to choose your battles. Communication will be necessary, but don’t expect all matters to be resolved. This is especially true if you are looking for a new home – wait until March before signing on the dotted line. Time is on your side, dear Archer.  My next webinar on “EMPOWERED LIVING IN 2015” is scheduled for Thursday, January 22nd. Visit traceylrogers.com to register!

Capricorn: Money is on your mind Capricorn, and you may be actively looking for additional resources that will bring you comfort and security. Some of you are on a mission to simply invest in your skills and talents, while others are negotiating a new salary. FYI, certain negotiations may not be finalized until the beginning of March, so bide your time and don’t settle by selling yourself short. What you seek is what you deserve, and you have every right to ask for what it is you want.  My next webinar on “EMPOWERED LIVING IN 2015” is scheduled for Thursday, January 22nd.

Aquarius: The Sun in your sign brings brighter days and increased energy, Aquarius! The world truly is your oyster over these next few weeks, and you have the cosmic green light to pursue the life of your dreams. But first, you will have to focus your vision. Yours is a sign that is quite inventive, but oftentimes, you leave your ideas on the back burner for too long, letting them all but spoil. If you want to make significant changes, now is your moment. Work out the kinks and just go.  My next webinar on “EMPOWERED LIVING IN 2015” is scheduled for Thursday, January 22nd. Visit traceylrogers.com to register!

Pisces: Don’t stress yourself out, Pisces. On the one hand, you’ve got plenty of energy to accomplish a great deal. On the other hand, you may be too focused on reaching your goals without necessarily considering why they are there in the first place. Don’t be a rebel without a cause, and don’t waste your energy on activities that won’t serve you in the long run. Take a minute to breathe and listen to your intuition. Remember that? Yours is usually pretty strong. Let it be your guide, not your ego. My next webinar on “EMPOWERED LIVING IN 2015” is scheduled for Thursday, January 22nd. Visit traceylrogers.com to register!
