an astrological coloring book

I have an old Llewellyn astrology calendar that I am keeping because the artwork is so beautiful. The artwork was done by Anne Marie Garrison and she happens to have a coloring book called Gods & Goddesses of the Zodiac that looks both beautiful and fun. I wish there were more coloring books like this.

the latest planetary gossip

On Jan. 9th, Venus is moving into Capricorn. Those with Capricorn prominent in their charts will be experiencing some loving vibes. Venus will be opposing Saturn, Capricorn's ruler, on the 27th. This could mean you may experience relationship difficulties. Your relationship could interfere with your work or vice versa. There's a good chance Saturn will be teaching you to take more responsibility in your love life.

On the 10th, Mercury will move into Capricorn as well. Straightforward and practical communication will be most effective until the 30th when Mercury moves into Aquarius. Then we can all let out our inner crazy cat ladies.

The New Moon is on the 10th too. Write down your New Moon goals - no more than 10 things you would like to manifest in your life. If you want to harness the energy of this Capricorn New Moon fully, make your goals practical and ambitious. You can also write yourself a New Moon abundance check.

fashion designing and spies

This is the dream I had the other night: I was in a city street and I found a cell phone. There was a name on the screen. I recognized the name and realized I had to run. I tried to find a place to hide. I ended up in a building that had doors you could go in, but couldn't go back out. The building was like a maze and I kept encountering groups of spies. They looked like a combination of moles and a SWAT team with no weapons. So I was running around, trying to escape the spies and find a way out. The spies didn't seem to care about me, but I wanted to avoid them anyway. I ended up finding a way out onto this huge runway where the spies were converging. They were trying to prevent the take off of some planes. Since these planes (which were shaped like cars) could go straight up in the air, the spies couldn't do anything. They took off their masks and started to celebrate with the creators of the planes. I was then whisked away by the president of the company. He wanted to hire me as head of fashion design, or something like that. He showed me a gorgeous, huge office which would be mine. I would get chauffered to work in a limo. He showed me the manual - an altered book. I was excited, but had no idea what I was really supposed to do. I picked up the manual and found it had some practical instructions in the front. My first project was to cut out and glue things on sketches of designs.

Astrological interpretation: Right now, transitting Jupiter is conjunct my natal Pluto in Libra. That conjunction is sextiling transitting Venus, Mercury, Pluto and my natal Neptune in Sagittarius. Mercury is the cell phone. Pluto, the spies. Neptune is the maze. The fashion design job is Venus, Jupiter and Libra. The confusion I felt about the job is Neptune. Not sure about the planes - Mercury maybe?
