Hello, everyone. 

This week is a quiet respite.  A couple of agreeable aspects influence our lives, so take a breather and enjoy the beginning of the year.  2010 promises to be earth-shaking; take advantage of this week to gather your thoughts and collect your energy for the coming year. 

Monday 

On Monday the Sun conjuncts Mercury in Capricorn.  This aspect stimulates our desire to communicate, but with Mercury retrograde, it’s best to plan our words carefully before we speak or write anything. 

Tuesday 

On Tuesday, this same Mercury retrograde in Capricorn conjuncts Venus.  This is a great day to reach compromise and agreement, especially on a matter being renegotiated after a setback or reversal.  Again, with the retrograde Mercury, just be sure to double-check all the fine print before you commit. 

And that’s it!  Have a great week!
