Due to the long pause in postings, here is a heaping helping of horoscopic humor from AAI’s Glenn Wargo.
Fashion: Since Asteroid 4 Vesta was in conjunction with the Sun on 1/11, this will be the proper season for 3-piece suits.
Relationships: Asteroid 3 Juno was in opposition on 1/29. Expect to take flak from your spouse if you stayed up to observe Jupiter.
With Comet Lovejoy (C2014/Q2) sparkling between Andromeda and her hero Perseus, the first half of February is a time to spark up the romance with your sweetheart. Flowers, candy, fine food, even jewelry can help, but loving words and tender attention are also essential.
Weather: With Mercury at minimal elongation around 1/30, look for the rest of January and early February to be chilly.
Finance: Nearly stationary Pluto is relaxing with the Teapot in Sagittarius while Hercules, The Strong Man, is up at dawn. The Fed will remain blissfully unconcerned about inflation while sports authorities strive to tackle the problem.
Nutrition: With gas giant Jupiter up all night in opposition on 2/06, you’d be well advised to skip “seconds” on the cabbage and bean casserole. Heck, skip “firsts” if you think you can get away with it. And with a very noticeable Moon on Leo for 2/04-06, it’s time to put your cat on a diet.
