AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18) Have you been having problems with someone, either in person or online? If things have been rather tense, now's the time to swallow your pride and start communicating and compromising.
CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19) Are matters involving home, family, domestic arrangements, parents or property dominating your thinking? Things will gradually improve, as long as you stay centred and keep an open mind.
CANCER (June 21 - July 22) Work projects are favoured, as you make the most of the Sun, Mercury, Venus and Uranus visiting your career zone. Creativity and motivation are high but try to keep a sense of perspective.
LEO (July 23 - August 22) Party-loving Lions are keen to socialise and circulate; mix and mingle; imagine and create; as you let your hair down and have some fun. But it's Equinox day so try not to overdo things!
PISCES (February 19 - March 20) You're thinking about a financial, business or work project as today's planetary patterns help you tackle tasks with extra energy and enthusiasm. But things won't happen overnight!
GEMINI (May 21 - June 20) Open and honest communication is the secret to success at the moment. There'll be plenty of opportunities to expand your peer group. But don't neglect your long-term friends in the process.
TAURUS (April 20 - May 20) The planetary patterns give tired Taureans a welcome energy surge today. The stars also favour some quiet contemplation, as you use your intuition to help you solve a current problem.
SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21) You're in the mood to help a loved one through a rough patch, or cheer up a close friend who is down-in-the-dumps. If you get drawn into a fiery discussion, strive to be balanced and fair-minded.
SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21) Scorpio is the sign of extremes, and you can have trouble relaxing. As we celebrate the Equinox - when day and night are of equal length - strive to bring more balance into your busy life.
LIBRA (September 23 - October 22) It's time to get talking with your nearest and dearest about subjects you may not necessarily feel comfortable about. Try to be fair and balanced, as you view things from differing perspectives.
VIRGO (August 23 - September 22) Business ventures are brewing at the moment, as you combine common sense with intuition to achieve a positive result. Don't be impatient though. Your dreams will take a while to manifest.
ARIES (March 21 - April 19) Are you being too subjective about a current issue? Take a step back, adjust your focus, and strive to view the situation from a much broader and wiser perspective. Balance is the key.
You want to learn Vodou? By: MentisAmor Jan 21, 2013

Here goes, I thought long and hard about what I did to pull together my knowledge, what I still do to continue through my path;
Read about the Haitian revolution, the slave trade, Haitian culture, the language, the lives of the people, read about the politics that encompass Haitis day to day life, learn Kreyol
Read about the passage of Vodou to North America, read about Marie Laveau and how she learned from Doctor John, how together they shaped the Vodou into Voodoo
Read about hermetic magick, read Aliester Crowley, read Eliphas Levi, look at the similarities between the lesser banishing ritual of the pentagram and the passwords non initiates are given.
Read about European magick, read into old traditions
Read about First Nations traditions, its practices, understand the connection both these oppressed people shared and how they understood each others suffering, how they shared their ancestral knowledge with one another
Read about herbs, learn the earth, learn to speak to it, learn to listen
Dance, sing, let your body go to that spiritual place that is not bound by human rules, let the sound of the drum beat carry you out to the astral waters
Learn as many Loa as you can, greet them as you would greet a new friend, get to know their likes, wants, hurts, pain, love, they are each individuals, value each and every one of their feelings as you would value a close friend
If an answer is handed to you and is easy it is not worth knowing, like a rubix cube given to you fully done there is no sense of discovery and excitement. Make words exciting, make that moment of clear understanding that sweeps through you with electric pleasure worth something, yearn for that moment!
