Forecast 2/10 The first New Moon after 2/4 begins the Chinese New Year, and this is the Year of the Snake.
There are 12 animals in the cycle and they have different elements or qualities, so this Snake is a different animal than 12 years ago. In general, Snake years are about shedding skins and a cautious (or calculated) approach to business. It can be a good money year for those who move fluidly and instinctively.
From a New Moon perspective, when married to the Aquarius energy, it suggests a year of innovative possibilities especially in communications and networking which bodes well for internet business. Of course, not all will do well- what’s critical is to choose excellent partners.

*Moon VOC/Void-of- Course:… in Aquarius you are apt to get caught up in a discussion or a cause which has no resolution. This is an excellent time to visit with friends or bounce around ideas, for pure recreation.
** We are still in the process of understanding the Sabian symbols, which were channeled in 1925. The spiritualist astrologer Marc Edmund Jones, took Elsie Wheeler, a clairvoyant confined to a wheelchair to a San Diego park with a project. He put a symbol for each of the 360∞ of the zodiacal wheel on 360 cards. She proceeded to come up with visual phrases for each one of them. They were done in random order and they have a magic that is hard to decipher, yet feels totally
