Chinese New Year arrives on February 10, signaling the dawn of the wise and introspective Year of the Snake!
Throughout the next 12 months, you'll find rewards in the inner world of spirit, not the outer world of material things. The year's pace will be slow, offering an opportunity to not only recover from the hectic Year of the Dragon, but to prepare for the wild ride of 2014's Year of the Horse.

Now that the Sun is in the Air sign of Aquarius through February 18, you may feel yourself gravitating towards the unique and original in your health regimen. In fact, you're likely to be turned on by thoughts and ideas now more than ever. And while your Aquarian mental pursuits may get a boost, there could be consequences for your physical well-being if you don't focus on your body as much as you should.
For example, it's easier to become so wrapped up in thought during the Sun's current transit through Aquarius that you might overlook making a healthy meal or scheduling in an exercise routine. Yet, physical nourishment is key to mental acuity -- let alone strong overall health -- so it's important to not forget the body for the mind.

Now that Mercury, the planet of communication and messages, has moved into the fixed Air sign of Aquarius through February 5, you'll be pushed to take your ideas to the next level! Among all the zodiac's signs, Aquarius is the one most concerned with values, and its fixed nature can often bring out a stubborn desire to separate right from wrong.
Aquarius also possesses a remarkable ability to detach and look at things objectively. However, if you're trying to have a heart-to-heart with someone during this phase, try to appeal to their reasoning rather than their feelings. Anything too mushy-gushy just isn't going to fly at this point.

Now that love goddess Venus has entered the no-nonsense terrain of Capricorn until February 1, you'll feel compelled to take your relationships more seriously. There's something karmic about this transit -- it's in the the way you consider how you treat others, and how you might even have to face a demon or two for your behavior!

Do you roll up your sleeves and get to work ... or throw in the towel and move on? This transit urges you to take the first tack -- to build a relationship with staying power.

Last week, Mercury left the hotheaded energy of Sagittarius and moved into the earthy terrain of Capricorn, where it will remain through January 19. Mercury is now no longer in a swapped-signs dialogue with Jupiter in Gemini, which thankfully takes some of the pressure off communication and makes it less likely that you'll shoot your mouth off without thinking first!
Although the movement of quicksilver Mercury into the sign of wise elder Capricorn may at first feel a bit stodgy, you'll find that if you work with it, you'll recognize the tremendous value of applying more caution to your thoughts and verbal expressions. This is a time of contraction after Jupiter's strong influence of expansion, so instead of aiming to shoot between the eyes with words, now is an ideal time to consider long-term repercussions regarding your integrity.

This month's Feng Shui fashionista tip is easy: "Out with the old, in with the new." Indeed, if you haven't worn it in two years, it's time to say "so long."

And if all that weren't enough, this philosophy further indicates that if your wardrobe is free and clear of unworn attire, then you're also
